** BRAZIL [non]. 6090, Feb 12 at 0005, VP signal with M&W talk; I try to divine whether it`s Brazuguese, as Mark Coady, Ontario, has again assumed it`s Radio Bandeirantes. No, it sounds more like Chinese. I am never monitoring at the same time and date as Mark; his was Feb 8 at 0002 and he heard RB even underneath Anguilla, which is not on now. Recheck at 0027: now a stronger S7-S9 dead air or maybe JB modulated.
Both these fit for Aoki listings:
2055-0300 CNR2 Golmud 916 site; close to grayline
0020-0320 Iran Sirjan site in Spanish
But it also maintains R. Bandeirantes, São Paulo, as 24 hours — like so many other long-gone LA stations.
But2, there could be at times a R. Bandeirantes on 6090. Rudolf Grimm in SP state reports it Jan 29 at 1742 UT in the local daytime with a program `Radio Livre`. He could not hear RB on MW 840 or the other former SW frequencies 9645, 11925, but the timechex were correct and the info current. It could have been a unauthorized pirate relay from FM or webcast, as ZY SW pirates are proliferating, so why not? He says RB had not been on the 49m frequency for three years.
By 0150, Anguilla has come up on 6090, PMS S9+20 with hum and squeal. I`m certainly not going to hear anything else under her (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15700, Feb 11 at 1438, CRI Plus English relay is S9+20, overmodulated, distorted and splattering. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.
5910, Feb 12 at 0310, this CRI English relay is S9+30 but suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 11 at 0720, VON is on tonight, S9+10/20.
9690-, Feb 11 at 1915, silly ballgame from SPAIN with a LAH, so VON is also on again here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: confirmed Sunday February 10 at 2155 the 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair.
Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 11 at 0230 on WRMI 5950, S9+20; but not even a JBA carrier on // 9395, off? (by 0352 during Slovakia mailbag, it`s S9-S9+10, and stronger than 5950).
Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 11 from 0401 on Area 51 webcast. Also presumably on WBCQ 5139.48 which was a JBA carrier at 0351.
Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 11 at 0430 on WRMI webcast; at 0458 check, 9955 VP at S6-S7; after 0500 this week, webcast plays World Music.
Also confirmed Mon Feb 11 at 2353 the 2330 on WRMI 9955, S9S5; by 2359 lite jamming has ramped up. Last couple words of WOR are upcut by music fill, as WRMI automation seems set up to overlap deliberately

** U S A. 3264.573, Feb 12 at 0001, JBA carrier vs storm noise from western OK, as WBCQ is finally testing this transmitter again, first tipped by Alan Pennington, UK to the WOR iog:
“WBCQ Monticello, Maine, USA testing 3265 kHz at present: “3265 kHz on now with test transmissions. Reception reports to wbcq at wbcq dot com please. Free Radio supreme here at WBCQ. Frozen north.” (Allan Weiner, WBCQ on Twitter 2010 UT) — Continuous pop, rock, oldies on 3264.6 from 2020 tune-in, many repeated IDs finally heard at 2055, good signal on SDRs in Rockport Maine (at 2020) and Newton, New Hampshire (2035). Then talk show from 2100 (Financial Survival? re 7490 schedule). But not audible across here in Caversham, UK. 73, Alan Pennington“.
Wolfgang Bueschel was also hearing it via remotes near WBCQ, the frequency varying considerably. At 0149 I find it still on 3264.573 but also still a JBA carrier. After 0200 a trace of music; 0240 still JBA carrier. Wonder how much power this is axually running, and what type of antenna, gain? That could be asked of all WBCQ frequencies. Of course 90m would have been much more useful in the quiet winter of minimum storm noise, and minimum MUFs.
5130.49, UT Tue Feb 12 at 0156, WBCQ with `From the Isle of Music` about to end, poor but better than // 7490.18. At 0157, 5130.49 cuts to legal IDs by AW over and over, while FTIOM is still on 7490.18! 9330 is inaudible, off or propped out. At 0201-0202* sign-off classical music on 5130.49 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7315 and much stronger 7385 are the active frequencies of WHRI at 0308 and 0348 Feb 12, not 5920 or 7520 as on UT Sundays with the Russian on the upper (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 27185, Feb 11 at 1915 on caradio, someone local is transmitting a big hum on this prime CB frequency (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
