** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 4835, March 6 at 1225, VL8A carrier is on, despite none 22.5 hours earlier. But it`s totally buried by the music sideband of 4840 WWCR. Also check 120m, and find 2325 and 2485 carriers for sibling NT stations, nothing on 2310 of course.
After WWCR 1259*, 4835 in clear with continuing talk in English not // 9580 RA. WWCR has not yet posted DST schedule effective March 13, but HFCC B-15 registration is for it to close 4840 one UT hour earlier at 1159*, which will be good for VL8A listeners (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9525, March 6 at 1230, no signal at all from VOI. Atsunori Ishida says not heard since March 2, at http://rri.jpn.org (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KYRGYZSTAN. 4819.955, March 6 at 1300, low audible heterodyne from off-frequency station against something closer to 4820.0 — presumed Birinchi Radio = net 1 of KTRK, 15 kW transmitter at Krasnaya Rechka (which means Red River, presumably a place rather than a literal waterway), as habitually reported off-frequency, like 4819.94 by Anker Petersen, Denmark, Feb 26 at 1730. 4820.0 would be Kolkata, Lhasa, or both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 15460, March 6 at 1236, good signal with keyboard music, 1240 RRI says “open studio“ and starts `Listeners Letterbox` one after another with glowing comments about Romania and RRI, taken from entries to their latest quiz contest, starting with listeners in India and Ireland.
17765, March 6 at 1249 also audible with RRI Letterbox, resuming after music break, S7-S9, over at 1252 and music fill is “Angels have their own demons“. Closing reveals that 17765 is to Africa along with 15150, and lookup shows the fourth frequency, to Europe was 13580. For one biweek from March 13 until the A-16 shuffle, we in the Central zone will have access to this at a more waking hour, 7-8 am = 12-13 UT; then it will revert to 6-7 am CDT = 11-13 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 15380, March 6 at 1235, open carrier at S3-S6. Per HFCC must be BSKSA at 12-14 in Arabic, 500 kW, 310 degrees USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020 & 9545, March 6 I`m awake early at 1230, so check for SIBC: no signal on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 15350.05, March 6 at 1234, Turkish music at S5-S8. Nice to be getting some pre-sunrise propagation on 19m, finally closing in on equinoxial/springtime conditions. This is scheduled 07-14 toward WEu and NAm beyond. But in the A-16 season will be replaced by 11955 at 06-12 redirected to 150 degrees, not much use here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1860-LSB, March 6 at 0655, another check of WA0RCR, still running ham news on AM, `Amateur Radio Newsline` at the moment, finds a 2-way ham right atop, calling CQ Contest, WB9JOX, 5-9, Illinois. Is this accidental or some kind of protest? Surely he can hear WA0RCR, closer to Wentzville than I am: ORANT, THEODORE A, WB9JOX, PALOS HEIGHTS, IL 60463 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, March 6 at 1222, S5 signal with dialog, but too brief a check to decide whether Indonesian or Bougainvillean. Maybe Ron Howard will have noted which one was on at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4760, March 6 at 1227, 60m bandscan includes many JBA carriers on Indian frequencies, including this one, not 4765 or yesterday`s 4766. 4760 could be Port Blair, Andaman & Nicobar Islands; or Leh, Kashmir, back on frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
