** CUBA. 6100 & 6000, April 15 at 0541, RHC English just barely modulated on these, slightly more on 6165, and good modulation on 6060 only. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, April 15 at 1406, VP signal with music, RHC running late here, checked // 13740 just in time at 1407 before it dumps to dead air and off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15230 & 15140, April 15 at 1411, both RHC are open carrier/dead air about S9. Usually one of them is funxional. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MALI. 5995, April 15 at 0542, something here with music, presumably ORTM turning on again earlier than 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. More on 1390 KCRC Enid: in original report I did not make clear that it was totally off the air from 2030 UT April 13, rather than open carrier like its related FM stations.
Shortly after filing that report, I find 1390 finally back on by 19 UT April 14, after some 22.5 hours of silence; could it be they were working on getting rid of the spurs? Ha! I am no longer hearing them at 2235 UT, 1360 clear for KPHN El Dorado KS with EWTN, and 1420 for KTJS Hobart OK, except now there is expanded splatter from 1390 even beyond that +/- 30 kHz range. Rather I think KCRC had to switch to a backup transmitter with different deficiencies.
April 15 at 1412 UT check, still no spurs circa 1360 & 1420, but the splatter continues, obscuring 1410 Wichita which never suffered this KCRC problem before (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), John Carver, IN, updates us April 15 on news from the last two `Allan Weiner Worldwides` on WBCQ, Saturdays 00-01:
“Glenn, two episodes ago Allen said that 3265 would continue through the summer, but once he was back in Maine, the antenna would be changed and possibly the transmitter.
In the most recent program, he stated that the super station would be energized this week for testing. They will be testing primarily on 9330 and some testing on 7490.
He will post detail on his twitter account. He will be in Florida at least until the end of the month.
He has developed some health problems, and is seeing several doctors to try and remedy the situation. He is having heart problems, primarily a-fib. He doesn’t believe it is terribly serious at the moment. He said, that if he has to have a pace-maker installed, they will have to put in some special shielding because of the RF energy at the station. -John“
Now what is his Twit? NO link to it on the homepage http://www.WBCQ.com — The obvious guess, https://twitter.com/WBCQ is axually Dr Scott Becker, not Allan. /weiner is an outdated 2015 Trump for President troll. Finally found him:
A new photo with each post, and political propaganda (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490+, UT Monday April 15 at 0000-0100, `Encore` classical music show on WBCQ comes off without a hitch this week. I enjoy listening to the first half on webcast for convenience at the computer, and second half axually via 7490 with a good signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505v, April 15 at 0538, WRNO back on after missing a few nights whenever I checked, S9/S9+20 gospel huxter in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15825, April 15 at 1409 and still 1445, WWCR-1 is S9+20/30 instead of JBA carrier, a sure sign that springtime HF sporadic E is in play making this one-megameter path propagate; confirmed by 10m Es DXmap which does show a few contacts across this area. 15555-USB WJHR is also showing up weakly. And at 1415, 12050 WEWN is S7-S9, much better than usual with an Es boost too. Still not a peep out of 17775 KVOH from the west this early (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
