** ASCENSION. 6005, Dec 11 at 0658 check just before closing, BBCWS in English to Africa still has some hum on this frequency, so apparently for them, not an urgent, or easy, problem to solve (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 9580 // 12085 and much weaker 12065, Dec 11 at 1422, all three RA frequencies air an “apology for break in transmission, hope to return to regular programming“. Since it`s rock music, Beatle-sounding, I would have figured it was already regular programming. 1434 another announcement, “we`re working on the problem“, with music before and after overlapping, so obviously a pre-prepared fill music and apology recording.
So how hard is it to get a feed from Melbourne to Shepparton, and if the primary link breaks down (satellite? microwave?), why isn`t there a backup (dial-up?)? At 1500 however, has no problem joining ABC News; 1520 check, music interrupted by YL quick announcement at 1528 saying only, “something — unearthed.com/“ i.e. link to current 14-17 UT Friday show, https://www.triplejunearthed.com/
so they have successfully hooked up again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non?]. 7520, Dec 11 at 0703, anti-Catholic rant by someone other than BS on the The Overcomer Ministry, specifically anti-Jesuit, claiming that guys like the pope take an “oath to eliminate Protestantism and true Christianity from the face of the Earth“. Oh, my!!! Soon back to Brother Scare himself croaking about this. Also found // but probably not synchronized with 7570 WRMI, 7355 WHRI, 9370 WWRB fair still on day frequency! and 3185 too (but no 5050).
No US station is supposed to be on 7520 at this time, since WEWN starts adjacent 7515 at 0500, and FCC prudently avoids 5-kHz conflicts among its clients. See their official B-15 schedule version 1 which did not appear until Nov 10:
If you have that bookmarked, next time you check, change the 01 to an 02 in case there be a new version (none showed up in A-15). Other users of 7520 at other hours are WHRI and WWCR, so probably one of them SNAFU`d (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13564-CW, Dec 11 at 1524, GNK beacon from Wisconsin is audible, and on adjacent 13565-CW, Dec 11 at 1525, much weaker K6FRC beacon from California. Hadn`t heard these or any other Part 15s listed on the ISM band for quite some time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Dec 11 at 1440, R. Sana`a, clandestine presumably via Jeddah, SA`UDI ARABIA, is again very strong during this hour containing martial, stir-em-up, music, draining my audience from the Kurdish music on 9400; after 1500 again mostly talk, Arabic discussion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
