** ASCENSION. 7305, Sept 22 at 0605, poor signal in French, mentions Vaticaine, but listed as BBC, to be followed by Hausa at 0630. No hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 1610 kHz, Fri Sept 22 at 0615 UT, YL in Luso Portuguese, talking about the press. No doubt CHHA Toronto, Voces Latinas, now with a little less QRM since PMS ANGUILLA tower is blown down. Program grid at
is not at all helpful, merely showing ALL NIGHT MUSIC at 1-6 am M-F, and nothing on Sat & Sun; oh look, it`s a biyear old, but what comes up direct from the current homepage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 15600, Sept 22 at 1324, S3-S6 talk in unID language, 1325 upbeat music sounds gospel, YL sign-off including website in .ca, so I suspect BVBN via somesite until 1327*. BUT, HFCC, NDXC and EiBI all agree it`s only CRI in Malay via Kunming, 100 kW at 175 degrees; so she must have said .cn rather than .ca (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 3325, Sept 22 at 1258, S2-S3 music, no doubt RRI Palangkaraya, talk follows timesignal about 25 seconds late after 1300 — don`t rely on it for navigation or you may run into a volcano! Still nothing on 9525- from VOI English. Astunori Ishida agrees, still no logs of that anywhen since Sept 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 15517, Sept 22 at 1322, JBA carrier, presumably Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, always on characteristic split frequencies ending in 2, 3, 7 or 8, while the ChiCom jammers can only reach -0 or -5 (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 15450.05v, Sept 22 at 1303, VOT with music at S3-S5. I keep checking the 1230 English broadcast USward beyond WEu, hoping for listenable reception, but not yet; maybe will improve autumnally. Characteristically off-frequency+plus like (all?) other Emirlers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Thu Sept 21 at 2053, WRMI not with BS as scheduled 7 days a week at 15-21 UT, but instead “Red Roses for a Blue Lady“, and “el sonido de la música por la 92“ — what`s this? More romantic music, and 2056 ID as `Frecuencia al Día`, so it was an aircheck of some FM station; on to DX logs spoken by someone in México, but sound like Claudio Galaz` detailed reports from Chile, in alfabetical order starting with Angola.
Pulse jamming can now be heard on 9955, and rapidly ramping up to full bore wall-of-noise by 2100! When, until months ago, WRMI was airing a secret prepeat of Radio Libertad`s overt 2300 broadcast. But now on the 21-22 UT schedule are four negligible programs, today Thursday starting with Frank & Ernest. However, on Wednesday & Friday the hour is allegedly occupied by `Noches con Mirka` which at least is by a Cuban exile, if not overtly political. Anyhow, is WRMI now airing variety programming on 9955 at 20-21 instead of BS every day? Is FAD scheduled on anyfrequency at this time, like 11580? No, on Thursdays that hour is devoted to the redundant `Voice of VORW`.
Altho still dated effective Aug 3, the WRMI skedgrid at
has in fact been updated, e.g. to show `Frecuencia al Día` at 1300 Thursdays, which just started today. But not in the case of 20-21 UT.
7730, Sept 21 at 2331 check, another WRMI transmitter/frequency now makes a post-Irma comeback, with BS // 7570 and 7780. The main hour to monitor 7730 for mostly more worthwhile non-BS programming is 00-01, as previously scheduled UT days:
Tue, Wavescan & WORLD OF RADIO
Wed, Jazz from the Left
Thu, Sounding Alarm, Wavescan
Fri, Voice of VORW
Sat, Frec al Dia, Wavescan
Sun, Wavescan, Radio IBC
Sun, Worship in Your Home
Also 7730: 06-08 UT Tue-Fri for RAE in Japanese, English; UT Sun 06-07 Radiogram and Radio Pinorama [Russian]. UT Mon 06-07 [blank] = World Music? Total span of 7730, #13 at 285 degrees, was and presumably is again: 23-14, BS occupying all the rest, except for other religious programs Sun & Mon at 07-08.
7730, Sept 22 at 0552 check, is JBA, slightly stronger than 7780 and weaker than 7570 where BS can be ascertained. It`s unusual for 7570 & 7730 to be so weak, but they have been lately: is it due to MUF propagation drop, or are these not back up to previous full power and same antennas? Before 0600 all three are BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6185, Sept 22 at 0553, JBA carrier. Nothing scheduled to account for it in HFCC, NDXC or EiBi. Mexico during CDT closes circa 0500* and if left on would be stronger than this: much weaker than 6180 VOA São Tomé.
We do see some fantastical listings in HFCC for 6185: “MKI“, RRI Manokwai, Indonesia in English! 1 kW at 01-05 & 07-10. Also imaginary is RRS, Irkutsk, Russia at 15-18. It lacks the REAL station, XEPPM, but includes Vatican in “Hye“ = Armenian at 0200-0230 which is really 0210-0230, the only CCI to Radio Educación. Anyhow, whence is this carrier I am getting now?
