** CHINA. 11640, April 21 at 1333, CNR1 with Sunday-evening cultural show playing contemporary Western classical orchestral music, S7-S9 with flutter // 11785. Aoki/NDXC pinpoints site for this 11640 jamming as Kashi-Saiba in EAST TURKISTAN, 10-14 scheduling matching that of Radio Taiwan International in Chinese on 11640 (which I am not hearing at all). Kashi/Kashgar of course also radiates countless “legitimate“ CRI transmissions.
11440, April 21 at 1330, very poor mix of two carriers, seems matching 11785, i.e. CNR1 jamming as per Aoki/NDXC, vs Sound of Hope via Maoli site, Taiwan.
10960, April 21 at 1336, JBA music. Aoki/NDXC has this as a Sound of Hope relay of RFA during long hours in Chinese, from Pingtung, Taiwan site, rather than Maoli for many others of SOH iself; but this could more likely also be CNR1 jammer.
In a complete bandscan from 10.9 to 15.0 MHz, these two are the only WOOB jam frequencies found (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 12000, April 21 at 1314, RHC music at S4-S5 on this second harmonic of 6000 which is S9/S9+10. Wolfgang Bueschel points out that when 11700 and 11850 are both on the air, 2200-0500, they can produce a leapfrog mixing product on 12000. Something`s always wrong at RHC. In the past, 12000 has also been an intentional fundamental of RHC, but not currently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15230, April 21 at 1317, RHC is JBM here, while 15140 is OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, April 21 at 0030, songs at S9+10, and at 0032 as expected, “Wolverine Radio“ ID, still going past 0100+. Many more logs here covering 0015-0121: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,53129.0.html Not so obvious theme tonight seems to be “vocal expression“, ending with SSTV image of girl whispering into another`s ear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. I missed this week`s AWWW on WBCQ, UT Sat Apr 20 at 0000 UT, but John Carver fills us in:
“Tonight’s show started on time on 7490 after some dead air and fill music. Allan and Angela in the studio talking about the IRS. First phone call at 0005 followed immediately by a call from Dave in Indiana at 0007 continuing the discussion about the IRS. Allan maintains that the IRS is illegal and wasn’t ratified by all the states. Allan is a little riled up this evening and goes into a rant. At the height of the rant while he’s waving his arms he manages to hit Angela who’s sitting next to him. Phone calls are hot and heavy this evening. Ramsey calls at 0031. He gets Allan to state that he’s been seeing doctors this week and he’s doing fine. reading of emails at 0053. Closing prayer at 0059. Show was off the air at 0101 with no talk of the station this evening. 7490 was off the air at 0102 after a bit of music. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490+, UT Sun Apr 21 at 0100, Pirate Joe opening his `Shortwave Saturday Night` on WBCQ, previewing topix in next three hours, says he is on 7490 & 3265, the latter, as always, barely audible here. Much needed left-wing counterpoint to AW; at 0125 he`s finishing the “14 points of fascism“, alluding to how much those apply to Drumpf`s America.
5130.443, UT Sun Apr 21 at 0108, WBCQ S9+10/20, better than usual on this frequency; Larry Will & Jane with `Lumpy Gravy Show`, also claiming to be on 3265! But this was “live April 19 on 3265“ i.e. the night before, UT Saturday, according to further comments altho not on the WBCQ program schedule other than now, his regular spot on 5130v; also makes left-wing comments.
Too much going on as usual on Saturday nights: not only these two, but Mighty KBC, Wolverine Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VENEZUELA [non]. 9955, UT Sun Apr 21 at 0115, WRMI cutting off `Ask WWCR` [sic], before it quite finishes in order to start `Acontecer Venezolano`, which is incredibly the only “clandestine“ broadcast concerning this country. Host starts making the case that there is a schism between the Maduro faxion and the harder-line Chavistas about how to proceed; and that US & Russia together are trying to organize some kind of transition. Is he imagining all this?
Altho this show has been on WRMI for a long time, there is no mention of it on the Programming page! At least not to be found by searching the text, rather than images. Only two scheduled times on the grid, UT Friday 0000-0015 & UT Sunday 0115-0130, both on 9955. I`ve not caught name of the guy who does it, but obviously safely in exile (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
