** CUBA. 9540, Nov 26 at 1346, RHC isn`t always active on this minor frequency, and now it might as well turn it off, since the hum is louder than the program modulation. Hardly any better at 1511. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9895, Nov 26 at 0700, RNW with 3-pip timesignal about 7 seconds late! And news in Dutch. This is right after a site switch from “KCH, MDA“ = Grigoriopol, PRIDNESTROVYE to Nauen, GERMANY. HFCC shows a 3-minute gap 0657-0700, but this was definitely on before 0700, and doubt the gap was anywhere near two sesquiminutes.
I am NOT nitpicking: timesignal pips denote precision to at least a fraxion of one second. When this cannot be accomplished for whatever reason of feed/digital delays, they should be eliminated/suppressed. This kind of slopperation is all too common nowadays, but it`s sad that even RNW does it. Don`t rely on it for any clock-setting or purpose requiring precision.
One version of news about the 21480 tests from MADAGASCAR said Nov 26 would be the last date, but already missing Nov 26 at 1402, 1450 chex, clearing the band for VCR radiations on 21477.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA. 9880, Nov 26 at 1523, here`s another audible frequency in our mornings from VOR in English: discussion of Russian national interests, fair signal. HFCC shows 15-19, 250 kW, 247 degrees from Pet/Kam to CIRAF 49 = SE Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. 6875, Nov 26 at 0652, RTI still in German instead of correct Spanish via WYFR toward Mexico (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U K [non?]. 29620-NBFM, Nov 26 at 1557, large signal from a repeater relaying British hams, an M1, and G1KJB; also KA2UAY, Greg(g) in NYC. Code ID went by at 1559 but they just kept talking and I couldn`t copy it. Relayed signals were rather distorted with vox and sounded like the input was from VHF, 2m? but u.o.s. 10m repeater inputs are 100 kHz below output, per
which lists about 42 of them on this frequency in North America! When the band is wide open, this ought to cause quite a cacophony, also on many other frequencies in this part of 10m, but I was not hearing any others at the moment; mostly inactive? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1592 monitoring: 9955, Sat Nov 26 at 1601, barely audible to somewhat audible; at least lucking out this hour without jamming or CCI.
Unlike most other entries, Aoki B-11
attempts to show many of the individual programs on WRMI, but much of it is wrong, still including defunct DX Partyline even tho labeled B-11; most remaining WORLD OF RADIO times missing, including this one; fails to realize that WRMI is not even on the SW air M-F between 15 and 23, and not using the 317 degree antenna for almost two years.
