** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5910, Friday Feb 14 at 1346, poor English talk about North Korea, i.e. Sea Breeze/Shiokaze still here. There is a bit of noise which could be jamming and also some tones (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9775, Feb 14 at 1357, “At 17“, Janis Ian song as always in love-song prélude medley, but cut off at 1400 for opening of Radio Free Chosun; via R. Veritas Asia, Palauig, PHILIPPINES site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEWFOUNDLAND. 6604-USB, Gander Radio, with airport weather including Calgary, and at 0628 Churchill where it is [only??] -29 C. Also on weaker // 3485-USB. Gander at 20-30 & 50-60 past the hours shares frequencies with New York; see U S A (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6604-USB, Feb 14 at 0630, New York Radio takes over from Gander [see NEWFOUNDLAND], with VOLMET, except: every single airport (“terminal aerodrome“) is “missing“ and the automation repeats this fact over and over about: Chicago, Milwaukee, and another; then moves on to Detroit and Boston “missing“ over and over.
I was checking NYR following an inquiry from Karl Zuk, NY, who was wondering if this service is being discontinued. I told him the same thing has happened before and eventually resumed, presumably a major systems failure.
Still in “missing“ mode on 10051-USB, Feb 14 at 1401 check: Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Detroit.
And on 13270-USB, Feb 14 at 1506 with very poor signal: “missing“ are Bangor, Windsor Locks, Norfolk, Charlotte!
Is anyone ever hearing NYR on 2000-USB any more? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Feb 14 at 1346, WTWW-1 is missing (OTH radar pulsing around 5800), but day frequency 9475 is on at 1500 check, as is 9930 with BS, but 12105 Arabible is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 750, Feb 14 at 1323 UT, NAB “local radio“ PSA, then promo for Dave Ramsey (who is anything but local) “at 2:05 on KBNN, The Talk of Laclede County“; 1325 UT medley of songbits from Billy Joel, Olivia Newton-John, Ray Charles, presumably making some point or interluding in another talk show, as someone was also speaking the lyrix. Seems I haven`t heard this one before, except in DXLD 12-12 had a possible log of this Lebanon MO, 5 kW ND daytimer. Official sunrise in Feb is 1300 UT; March, 1230 UT. It also has a 500-watt PSRA every month except when unneeded in May/June/July, i.e. starting at 6 am local CST/CDT. Another obstacle to ever hearing KSEO in Durant OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6135, Feb 14 at 0625 I am again hearing a het, but without measuring, seems a bit lower than the Bolivia/Brasil one I presumably had a few hours earlier. Is there a major broadcaster on 6135 now? Not per Aoki, beyond Madagascar and Yemen (misspelt “Sanna“), but does show R. Santa Cruz with strange schedule signing *on at 0500! Aparecida is supposedly off between 0300 & 0800. EiBi agrees on Madagascar and Yemen (however unlikely those may be for such a het source), but shows RSC irregularly on air at 0210-0600, and Aparecida as 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
