13700, Jan 6 at 1445, RHC `En Contacto` has Arnie saying that we are almost to solar min by summer near zero sunspot count, forecast to start rising in Sept as high as 30 by yearend when SW reception should be much improved. His info probably comes from Yanqui SWPC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9955, Sunday Jan 6 at 1454, AWR Wavescan during logs from Japan, poor with ACI from stronger 9960, which is PALAU with Furusato no Kaze. Aoki/NDXC attempts to list every single program on 9955, but misses 1430 Sun Wavescan, instead ex-Word for the World.
And on Wed at 1430-1445 & Tue at 1445-1500, among others, Famagusta Gazette! which has been gone for a year or more? I haven`t run across it in a long time. WRTH 2019 pp 467-468 under CYPRUS still shows a total of 11 weekly times for FG Radio on 9955 or 5950.
But WRMI sked grid has only 4 when searched on FG: Wed 2100 on 7780 & 5950, unlikely; Thu 0245 on 9955; Thu 2245 on 9955; Fri 1015 on 5950. Any of these need to be confirmed, and whether they involve current news or stale replays, evergreens, as has happened before.
WRTH notes: “Weekly prgr with Europe related news, linked with the (now discontinued) online news portal `Famagusta Gazette“` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15809.983, Jan 6 at 1435, JBA carrier, must be the very irregular WTWW-3, typical frequency offset, on a very bad day for 19m propagation, as even the three Cubans are weakened and spurless. I struggle to hear enough mod to match it to 9475-, WTWW-1, which has a big echo: double-audio input of SFAW talk, unusual, S9+20/30. At 1500, 9475 has gone off! Back on in a minute with single audio; but why was it necessary to turn off the transmitter to fix it? I keep trying to match and finally do so during PPPP singing at 1503 as I measure the frequency.
Then I find that Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria has been getting 15810 much better: “Test transmission of WTWW-3 from 1400 on 15810, fair to good. Nothing from World Music Radio Denmark on 15805 — 73! Ivo Ivanov“ at 1443 UT Jan 6. (And SHN says this is the final daily broadcast on 15805, to be weekends only) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 930, Jan 6 at 0708, WKY OKC Spanish ESPN-D is getting overtaken by some C&W music, on my E-W antenna almost perpendicular to OKC, fades just in time for ID(?). Not too many C&W format possibilities in NRC AM Log: KAFF AZ, KRKY CO both of which would need to be on 5 kW day power; likewise WSEV TN. Or the two Canadians, CFBC NB, CJYQ NL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Minor regional tropo enhancement brings DTV DX, morning of January 6 from 1553 UT. Only decode, briefly at 1629, is RF 45 as 3-3, Ion, PSIP along with 3-4 Justice, 3-2 Telemun [sic], and 3-1 KSNW-DT, i.e. Wichita`s NBC. Poor Ion in that market, gets only its main channel on another station, not the other 5. Other BAD signals correlate mostly with Wichita/Kansas market rather than Tulsa yesterday and ante-yesterday: 8, 10, 12, 16, 19, 21, 22, 26, 35.
Bill Hepburn`s tropo maps indicate more marginal openings this week on Tue-Wed-Thu mornings (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7325.7 & 7325.0, Jan 6 at 0654, two JBA carriers hetting. Aoki/NDXC shows BBCWS in English 7325 switching from Woofferton to Ascension at 0700, but even if overlapping, neither likely to be off-frequency. 7325 is also day frequency for AIR Jaipur, India, from 0630, also unlikely. Both BBC transmissions are *jammed by the ChiCom even tho they are in English, which far too many Chinese now understand (GLenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
