This correlates with Mike Gilchrist`s report from Iowa today:
“I spent some time carefully adjusting the oscillator on the SDR-IQ and measuring the station I believe to be Radio Symban. 130327, 1205, 2368.475, R Symban, Peats Ridge—Gosford NSW, Australia, 33232. Signal peaking here at local sunrise. Female vocals, some dialog, more music. Still no ID, but am all but certain this is Symban.“
and with Ron Howard`s from California:
“2368.48, Radio Symban (presumed) – 1244-1312 with EZL pop songs
of the Pacific region; one of their better days, but heavy QRN.
Still broadcasting on their extended schedule.
BTW – The QSL card I received from Johno Wright indicated location as “Leppington (near Sydney) N.S.W.”https://www.box.com/s/v2cwajn900termgplxs4

** BANGLADESH. 15505, March 27 at 1358, BB IS with flutter, timesignal to 1359:55 again 5 sex fast, opening Urdu. Hum is worse than usual almost atop the intentional audio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake March 27 at 1350-1353: none found 18-11 MHz. Asian conditions were quite depressed above 12 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5040, March 27 at 0517, RHC English with continuous rather than intermittent audio dropouts (CADs?) as has happened before on this frequency but not on any of the // overkill quartet on 6 MHz.
9850, March 27 at 1305, RHC Spanish news is still going past nominal 1300* so I keep listening to time when this slipshod operation will cut itself off: 1307* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 6005, March 27 at 0054, CRI English about Chinese Opera (with voices!), closing `In the Spotlite` show, into language lesson filler, and // 6020 via Albania. 6005 is 100 kW, 174 degrees from Kashgar at 00-01 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GOA [and non]. 11775, March 27 at 1353, Dead Gene Scott is taking a break, no ANGUILLA, so we may hear the Sino-Bharatian radio war in all its splendour, i.e. CNR1 jamming against AIR Nepali, 1330-1430, 250 kW, 25 degrees via Panaji. Is this an ancillary victim following the 1215-1330 Tibetan service on same, or are the ChiCom now deliberately jamming AIR Nepali as well? Not the first time. Usually they are quite precise in their jamtiming, e.g. cutting off at 1315* along with AIR Chinese on 15795 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 600, March 27 at 1207 UT, frenetic music, ID mentioning 102.7 FM y 600 AM, poor signal but in the clear, barely a SAH from anything else. Cantú matches the frequencies as:
600 XEHW La Mejor + FM 102.7 Mazatlán, Sin. 5,000 1,000
However, lists three other 600s with no known FM, yet. And IRCA Log conflicts, showing XEHW as in Rosario, 5/1 kW, // 90.1 FM, as Ovni Radio, which means UFO (object flying non-identified). WRTH 2013 splits the difference, as La Kañona in Rosario! So which is it?
Back to Cantú where there is still a webpage link working tohttp://www.lamejor.com.mx/mazatlan/
which features an amateur cheesecake gallery, but hard to find any frequency mentioned. Listening online at 1535 UT, there`s a Sinaloa political discussion. Finally at 1546 after ad- and PSA-string, another ID as “La Mejor, 102.7 y 600“, back to `Línea Directa`, 8:46 timecheck. Apparently La Mejor is a nationwide brand, but I am hearing local origination (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 720, March 27 at 1205 UT, “La Kaliente 105.7 y 720“ by SHVA, then 6:04 TC by live DJ. It`s XEDE Saltillo, Coahuila, 8/0.25 kW per Cantú (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 990, March 27 at 1206 UT, “XET, La T Grande, Monterrey, 50 mil watts, cubriendo todo México; then opening second hour of news, “Enlace 99“. “All“ of Mexico, that is except where the ten other 990 stations can overcome it! In fact, XET dominates here now at night, not just at dawn and dusk; haven`t heard CBW in quite a while, conditions? Had to consult the NRC Pattern Book again to reassure myself that XET at night is supposed to radiate a circle tangent southward only, altho non-direxional daytime. Today`s Monterrey sunrise would be 1238 UT, while in Enid it`s 1224 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 93.1, March 26 afternoon, “straw sucking almost empty cup“ translator K226BR of KIMY Watonga 93.9, has been missing for some time, uncovering Hutchinson/Pratt KS station. Hope it`s gone for good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, March 27 at 0053, DentroCuban Jamming Command continues to pulse here every night against nothing but R. Chaski; in fact, it`s worse than usual, maybe two transmitters mixing, judging from irregularity of pulses. At least 5990 CRI relay and its splash are off by 0059, and the 5980 Urubamba carrier is still detectable with BFO until cut off at 0101:48.5 which is 5 sex later than last nite (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 7530, March 27 at 1357 tone test; 1358 full “Voice of America, Washington, DC, signing-on“ routine with Yankee Doodle Dandy, then repeated at 1359. 1400 heard no announcement in English of language to follow, just music and into that language which is: Tibetan, per HFCC this hour only, 250 kW, 275 degrees from Tinang, PHILIPPINES; poor, and soon fading. No jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 2620, March 27 at 1237 UT, music and English talk somewhat distorted, fade up and then out; presumably something harmonicizing from 1310. Also some JBA music on 2660, i.e. KGLD Tyler TX from 1330 kHz at 1240, really too late after 1224 sunrise here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
