** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, Thu April 18 at 1336, JBA carrier on signature minus-offset from LRA36. Apparently active only on Tue & Thu; others reported it April 16 on extended sked, but I could not detect it then. And I`ve yet to see any other logs of it today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 13130, April 18 at 1340, CNR1 jammer is VG S9-S7 with flutter, and 12820 weaker S6-S9 with flutter. Both of course are Sound of Hope, Taiwan frequencies. From 1340 to 1348 I scanned the entire ranges 6.9-9.3 and 10.9-17.5 MHz, finding only these way-out-of-banders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 4765, April 18 at 0227, R. Progreso back on after missing almost a week, presumably still 0030-0400 only; vs storm noise crashes now here. Something`s not wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA [and non]. 11700, April 17 at 2348, stilted Spanish can`t be RHC — soon ID as RRI, but music from Cuba audible underneath: a long-standing collision also in previous seasons, Commies vs ex-Commies! Cuba // 11760 much stronger in the clear. Something`s always wrong at RHC. RRI // is 11800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SWEDEN [non]. 15510, April 18 at 1758, S4-S6 open carrier, or is it JBM? 1800 definitely some music and shortly talk in unID language, OOFSOB. Aoki/NDXC shows 1730-1900 IBRA Radio Sama via Woofferton UK, the 1800-1830 segment in Fur, as in Darfur. Also logged same April 7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 15470v, April 18 at 1336, heavy flutter and terrible het, since IBB in Bod/Tibetan is scheduled until 1400 via TAJIKISTAN, and of course heavily jammed. Similar but weaker signals on 15275 which is scheduled for exactly the same thing. More CNR1 jamming on 15165, which is VOA Mandarin via Thailand. The only legit ChiCom signal on 19m is 15590, CRI English via Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, fair with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1977 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 17 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S9+10. This week transmitter on by *2055 with IS & ID loop, but WOR opening upcut by a few words. Also confirmed about 3 seconds later on WBCQ 7490.18v, VP S5.
Not confirmed, UT Thursday April 18 at 0000 on WRMI 7730 — it`s no accident as Alameda Bible Fellowship Bible readings in fake-voice Spanish have been inserted here.
Confirmed UT Thu Apr 18 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair but heavy storm noise crashes nearby. Next:
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [or 1978?] 0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 [or 1978?]
[it appears we will now be running on a Saturday-to-Fridaycycle, so freshest new airings are on weekends — or even Friday-to-Thursday as this week I am attempting to finish 1978 by early UT Friday]

** VATICAN [and non]. 17530, April 18 at 1333, JBA carrier which must be VOA Somali via SMG this hour only, violating Separation of Church & State. The only other JBA carriers on 16m are 17615-minus, 17705 and 17895, obviously the SRI/SBA Riyadh trio with two different Arabic programs, as often the only signals capable of making it, even so marginally tho 500 kW each (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
