** BRAZIL. 11780, Feb 19 at 2140, RNA is on with news about Amazônia rather than `A Voz do Brasil`; 2159 outro as `Reporte da Amazônia`, from the EBC studios in Brasília, 2200 opening `A Voz do Brasil` — just as I expected, back to normal non-DST timing of 22-23 weekdays, while last week it was still a real hour earlier at 2100-2200 and then off abruptly. Presumably stays on another hour now until 2300*. This shift also applies to countless other Brazilian stations which must carry the government`s program (altho some of them are allowed to delay it further to a more convenient time in their schedules) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 341 kHz, Feb 20 at 0732 UT, YYU and dash, 500-watt beacon from Kapuskasing, Ontario; vs local EI Enid.
362 kHz, Feb 20 at 0734 UT, SB and dash, 400-watt beacon from Sudbury, Ontario. CCI from OWP; see OKLAHOMA.
366 kHz, Feb 20 at 0735 UT, YMW and dash, 500-watt beacon from Maniwaki, Quebec (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6165, Feb 20 at 0717, RHC manages to get the right language, English on this frequency, unlike last night, but it`s just barely modulated at S7. 6100 is S9+20 also undermodulated with some hum and crackle; about same level is 6000. And 6060 also in correct language, also hum but less noticeable with more modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 362 kHz, Feb 20 at 0734 UT, beacon OWP from Sand Springs — William Pogue, power unknown, mixed with SB and dash from Sudbury, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Feb 20 at 0724, JBA carrier, presumed SIBC already, vs intermittent ute pulses, sweeps, and ACI from 5025 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday February 20 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, very good; also confirmed at same time on WBCQ 9330.25v-CUSB, only half as strong but still sufficient. And almost synchronized about 1 second apart.
WORLD OF RADIO 1918 contents: Australia, Bougainville, Brasil, Canada, Cuba, Czechia and non, Ethiopia non, Europe, Germany, Guantánamo Bay, International Internet & Vacuum, Iran, Italy non, Korea South, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Russia, South Carolina non, Taiwan, Uganda non, USA and non; and the propagation outlook
WOR 1918 ready just in time for first airing Tuesday February 20 at 2030 on WRMIs, and confirmed, JBA on 7780, fair on 9455; again at 2130 on 9455 only, fair. I was hustling to get it done ASAP, as we are into an ice storm: no power outage here yet but some flickers. Light icing so far on utility lines and antennas. A second wave is expected on Feb 21 with no melting before then.
Altho 1918 was available 3 hours earlier, WOR 1917 still replayed on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, JBA UT Wed Feb 21 at 0030. (With WRMI it`s my responsibility to upload new show ASAP to its servers; with WBCQ I have to depend on someone there taking notice and downloading it.)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1560, Feb 19 at 2100 UT, KEBC OKC sportstalk with an understation making a rippling fast SAH, and a 5+1 timesignal of the kind usually heard on foreign SW stations; then believe I heard “Omaha“ mentioned, so that would be KLNG, 10 kW ND daytimer in Council Bluffs IA.
MWOffsets has no entry for KLNG, but KEBC and two other major 1560s:
1560 1559.9302 USA KGOW (Bellaire (D), TX) 2010-08-29
1560 1559.9891 USA KEBC (Del City (D), OK) 2018-01-23
1560 1559.999 USA KKAA (Aberdeen, SD) 2007-03-03

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590v, Feb 19 at 2059 UT on caradio, a medium het QRMing KVGB Great Bend KS, ID with translator. In DXLD 16-15, KWBG Boone IA (near Des Moines) was suggested as the off-frequency one; listed now as 1000/500 watts U2, and would be on ND day pattern this early, but skywave already coming in topend. Night pattern goes NW, bad for us, when I also have a bad 1590 het, but maybe else from something local.
Top “1590“ entry at mwoffsets is in fact KWBG, i.e. the one furthest off to the low side, but it`s 8+ years old, i.e. a ~332 Hz het against KVGB if both still apply:
1590 1589.664 USA KWBG (Boone, IA) 2009-09-27
compared to my two closest:
1590 1589.9957 USA KVGB (Great Bend, KS) 2017-10-01
1590 1589.9961 USA KWEY (Weatherford, OK) 2018-01-23 [direxional away] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, Feb 20 at 0722, JBA S2-S3 carrier, intriguing; nothing listed in Aoki, EiBi or HFCC. Does not compute as WWCR or RHC mixing product (latter does put a weakie on 6230 whenever 6100 & 6165 are both on). Maybe a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
