** BRAZIL. 11780, Jan 11 at 1938, RNA is reactivated here, Brazuguese at S9-S6 (and no 11775 Anguilla to bother). First reported by Jorge Freitas, Bahia, “11780 RNA volta a transmitir. 11 Jan às 0013, o sinal é bom com leve QRM desde a CRI na mesma frequência“. Then Wolfgang Bueschel measured it at 0037 on 11780.008.
I hear 11780 again at 0002 Jan 12, S9+10/20 with TC for 10:03, ID only for EBC, 300 kW on 980. Nothing on 6180 as RNA continues to employ only one transmitter. This alleviates the collision with China-via-Cuba.
11780 sked is probably about 10-02 UT, like 6180 had been, i.e. 8 am to midnight in EBDST. 0159 recheck, 11780 still on good, but signing off a program, 0200 “meia-noite“ TC and into news of Bolsinaro (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13089-USB, Jan 12 at 1530 tune-in, synthetic OM voice says W8CEN, so at first I think I have a hamspur, but on into marine weather, the readout rather garbled. EiBi shows 13089 is timeshared among USCG Guam, Honolulu, Point Reyes CA, and Chesapeake VA — with NMN at the latter scheduled 1530-1605, and nothing immediately before it.
As I was tuning up several minutes prior, I kept hitting bits of distorted FMish talk spurring around various frequencies such as 12192, 12222, 12262; all I could confirm was that they were not // RHC but now I wonder if they were from NMN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15580, Friday Jan 11 at 2120, VOA GB inbooming during weekly `Music Time in Africa` with extremely repetitive tune, but fading way down by 2130. May have been getting a sporadic E boost (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

As often, I sleep past the Unique Radio/WINB/WRMI Saturday morning airings, and I don`t get to UTwente quite in time to try HLR 9485 before 1600 UT Sat, but it`s usually inaudible. Next:

** U S A. 5950, Sat Jan 12 at 1517, WRMI with Blalock the Blaster exploding into huxtergasms* (* credit Harold Frodge for this coinage), as it is now // 9955 which extends for him past 1500 only on weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490.13v, UT Sat Jan 12 at 0109, WBCQ `Allan Weiner Worldwide` is VP, something about The Wall; if // on 9330+, that`s a JBA carrier. 5130+ is also VP with something else. Computer is not on so I won`t be hearing webcast.
Recheck at 0151, now 7490 is fading up sporadically as AW is saying the Superstation project is running about 5 months behind because of vendor delays so maybe not on air until summer; but he is very impressed with the transmitter itself, state-of-the-art like a spacecraft. Since will be out of FLA by Feb, maybe will attend SW Winterfest, and maybe also with others such as Tom. Sad news: we lost Goddess Irena, who died January 3. Her program will still be running Thursdays at 7:30 pm EST on 7490. (How about Wednesdays at 5:30 pm ET = 2230 UT right after World of Radio, as we have been hearing her? WBCQ sked shows her only then, with `Camp Constitution Radio` at the time AW thought). Over to John H. Carver for a fuller report on AWWW:
“Show started this evening on 7490 after a period of dead air. No signal that I could detect. Buzz words over the theme song had to do with the Wall. Allan and Angela in the studio in FLA. Opening statement from Allan musing about rigging a microphone in their bedroom so they could do the show from their bed. Talk immediately jumped to the wall and why congress should support it.
Phone call from Freddie at 0111 urging Allan to continue his rant and talk to him later. Poor signal on 7490 this evening with a lot of noise and some fading. 5130 was carrying other programming. Freddie finally gets to speak and backs Trump on the wall. He was on the phone for twenty-one minutes and the two of them fed off of each other as the political talk grew and grew. Into another phone call immediately after Freddie disconnected continued the discussion but eventually morphed into a discussion about the antenna for the superstation.
Another phone call at 0147 from Tony Straka. He asked if Allan and Angela were going to make an appearance at this year’s Winterfest as they would be up North this year during the fest. Allan couldn’t promise but did say that it might happen.
Allan announced that Goddess Irena had died at the age of eighty-five. He said that are still running her program and will continue to do so until her spot is sold to someone else. Closing prayer at 0158. Program was off the air at 0200 as was 7490. 5130 was still on the air running other programming. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775, Sat Jan 12 at 1608, KVOH is a JBA carrier when its only airing of Wavescan is supposed to emanate. At solar-minimum, stations may want to reconsider putting their only egg in the 16m basket.
This is supposed to be one of the first airings of each new WS which are dated Sundays; at least the program sked linx to podcasts, not including Jan 13 yet:
