** BRAZIL. 11780+, Nov 18 at 0718, open carrier/dead air from RNA/RNB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, Nov 18 at 1346, RHC is still on now, and stronger than 5025 Rebelde which is anyway still audible 34 minutes after our sunrise today at 1312; two hours after Habana sunrise 1145.
At 1358 Nov 18 on 17730, I`m ready to copy the new frequency announcement: going off 9850, 6000; continuing until 1500 on 17580, 9710; until 1600 on 15370 — that`s all, ignoring all their other frequencies including the big one I`m hearing! Why? At 1437 check I am also hearing: 9550 with CCI, 9640, 9710 strong splashing upon 9700 New Zealand, 9820, 11760; and at 1441, suptorted 17750. At 1455, the modulation is cutting out on 15370 as often happens (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 7615, Nov 18 at 1352, poor signal in Korean, seems also with tone jamming? Nothing in HFCC. On Nov 16, Harold Sellers remarked about Voice of Wilderness, “Glenn, Aoki shows Uzbekistan, although the latest version has the frequency as 7615, while EiBi shows Tajikistan [at 1330-1530 on 7620]“. Had been on 7620 when he heard it Nov 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9960, Nov 18 at 1436, Japanese with some humbuzz, slightly stronger than adjacent 9955 WRMI with WOR, and thus to be avoided. It might have been Taiwan site, but HFCC has duplicate registrations for T8WH PALAU, a.k.a. ex-KHBN, from Babcock & Babcock, and from JCI & FCC, but agreeing it`s in Japanese, 100 kW, 345 degrees at 1430-1500 daily. EiBi gives the real identity: Furusato no Kaze (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, Nov 18 at 0733 UT, WKY OKC is OFF! See USA for a couple of uncertain logs in its absence; hard to get past WKY otherwise even when nulling. Next check 1703 UT, WKY is on in Spanish, but weaker than usual, *much* less signal than its neighbors which it normally exceeds, 890 KTLR and 1000 KTOK (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES. 9400, Nov 18 at 1344, Chinese atop Kurdistan, so FEBC is certainly still here colliding, scheduled until 1400, not // other Chinese program on 9430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1799 monitoring: confirmed Wed Nov 18 after 1415.5 on WRMI 9955, good. Not confirmed after 1530 Nov 18 on HLR, 7265-CUSB, via UTwente SDR, just weak signal in presumed Hindi from CRI East Turkistan. The Wed HLR transmission keeps appearing in some schedules, as in Ivo Ivanov`s, at least for the earlier 0730 broadcast, altho it was “suspended“ months ago and I don`t know of any plans to resume it. Next WOR: Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11550, Nov 18 at 1349, WEWN missing again from half its Spanish frequencies, still on 12050, and English 15610; also not on 7515, checked in case on late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 930, Nov 18 at 0733 UT, WKY OKC is OFF! Hard to get past it otherwise even with nulling. Now I am hearing classic rock/oldies from ENE/WSW, fast SAH with algo. 0734 UT DJ with celebrity bit, about Conan O`Brien and Northwestern (University?), and a singing ID, maybe some C`s in it, but just can`t make it out. Modulation is slightly distorted. A couple of PSAs like that too. 0736 UT, `Heartache“ by Bonnie Tyler. Best bet by format, DF and proximity is KCCC Carlsbad NM, as long as they are closer to day power of 1000 watts than night of 60.
930, Nov 18 at 0737 UT classic rock station above is losing out to a country station looping ESE/WNW, or at least clockwise from its predecessor. Hoping one or the other will be clear for a next ID, but by 0746 UT too much mix and I can`t stay awake any longer. In NRC AM Log there are quite few C&W stations on 930, with two possibilities: KAFF Flagstaff AZ, 5000/31 watts; and KRKY Granby CO, 4500/121 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
