Alan Roe`s SW Station Hitlist:
with updates concerning Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Indonesia, USA WINB
** BRAZIL [and non]. 11780.0, Feb 4 at 0630 check with music, RNB/RNA is finally back on frequency; had been 11783+v since January 25 (and before that around 11780.1). As usual, it`s the SSOB, with nothing else on 25m but much weaker 11725 NZ, 12070 Rwanda, 12095 South Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 12045, Feb 4 at 1440, Firedrake is VG with flutter, so good that its higher audio frequencies are QRMing adjacent 12050 WEWN, as if its constant squealing self-QRM weren`t enough. FD also on usual spots 9315, fair with flutter; and 6145 at 1445 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, Feb 4 at 0626, R. Rebelde off again; limited schedule? Next check not until 1339 when it is on, barely audible before fadeout.
9550, Feb 4 at 1355, RHC is missing, and unlike yesterday unfound on 9155 or any other espionage frequency in the 9s or 10s.
15340, Feb 4 at 1435, RHC is missing again, audiblizing something weak, presumably HCJB Australia; tho RHC is audible on 15230; and no replacement found on an espionage frequency in the 14s or 16s. Ops normal on 17730, 17580, 13780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9775, Feb 4 at 1353, carrier on and off and on, 1355 applying modulation of what else? `Here for the long run` lovesong JIP prior to 1400 R. Free Chosun in Korean; via RVA Palauig, PHILIPPINES (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 700, Feb 4 at 1315 UT, rustic Mexican music, hypo announcer, no doubt the regular XEETCH, Etchojoa, Sonora (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 6185, Feb 4 at 0625 check, XEPPM is completely off, no modulation and no carrier either; yesterday, Wolfgang Büschel heard them until 0700* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 13725-13730-13735, Feb 4 at 0632, RNZI DRM noise is stronger sounding than its presumably // AM on 11725. And also much stronger than 13630 Australia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1640, Feb 4 at 1320 UT, as expected, KZLS Enid-Hennessey-Oklahoma City has started talking, one guy about school closings due to snow storm around state; 1333 UT still ID as KZLS, PSAs including Oklahoma National Guard. 1336 UT Hank-FM farm news update on the Radio Oklahoma Network; more of same at 1436 UT; 1441 UT name of show is `The Ride with Reid` (sp?), alluding to drive-time, not advisable under current conditions. Supposedly, talk blox are being phased in the rest of February, with part of the airtime on KZLS still filled with True Oldies: yes, back to music after 1600 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5110v-CUSB, UT Tuesday Feb 4 at 0626, WBCQ is off; must have taken an extra day to get rid of Brother Scare as expected, since he was still BSing here 24 hours earlier.
3215, Feb 4 at 0634, no more BS here, WWCR-1 instead filling with `Worldwide Country`, somebody yodeling, then introducing a Buck Owens tune; while non-yodeling BS remains on 3185 WWRB.
WWCR hasn`t updated their program schedule dated January 1, still showing BS daily except Sunday at 0600-1000 on 3215, but this is Tuesday. Month-to-month deals always result in TOM schedule changes on various stations, like just cutting from 72 to 48 hours a day on WRMIs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5830, Feb 4 at 1346, just as I tune in WTWW-1, cuts off the air. It was also off a few minutes earlier; nominal QSY time to 9475 is 1400. Meanwhile, WTWW-2, 5085 stays on the air with BS; and after 1400, WTWW-3 is on, Bibling in Russian.
Meanwhile, George McClintock informs that they are cleaning out the middle building to make room for a fourth transmitter, Harris SW 100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Feb 4 at 1351, music underneath stronger open carrier, as WRMI-11 is preparing to take over from WRMI-10 at 1400. Too bad it has to QRM itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
