** CANADA. 15034-USB, May 6 at 1419, CHR Trenton Military, nothing but “no report received“ from Ottawa, Toronto, Bagotville — and Trenton! over and over (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11440, May 7 at 1417, CNR1 jammer at S9-S7, // 11460 about the same. The other day this was on 11460 only. Aoki/NDXC shows both as *jammed SOH Maoli frequencies available 20 hours a day.
11580, May 7 at 1419, CNR1 jamming at S4-S6, weaker than 11440 & 11460. Same situation as those.
12190, May 7 at 1422, CNR1 jamming // the others, S9/S9+10. Ditto.
12880, May 7 at 1422, CNR1 jamming, S6-S9. Ditto.
13270, May 7 at 1423, Gander Radio weak on USB but also a carrier, so I try LSB, and there is another very weak CNR1 jammer. Yes, it`s another listed *jammed SOH Miaoi frequency.
Someone, somewhere will be reporting some of these as Sound of Hope, fooled by the Chicom, rather than their jammers. In no case was any sign of SOH audible here, rather CNR1 probably blotting very low power transmitters in Taiwan or Thailand, if any.
No other WOOB CNR1 jammers found between 10.9 and 18 MHz, but this:
15110, May 7 at 1426, CNR1 jammer S9/S9+10, atop VOA Chinese via Philippines this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11880, May 6 at 1418, CRI English conversation about education, with good modulation — it can be done! Something`s not wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SINGAPORE. 11795, May 6 at 1417, poor S3-S5 with declamatory speech, then less hyper talk, language? Scheduled as BBC Hindi at 1400-1430, northwestward from Kranji (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN. 9465, May 7 at 1313, pop songs in Japanese (“arigato“), S6-S8, 1320 into Korean talk with sombre music background, 1325 only instro-music until 1328* without further utterances. HFCC shows this is something from Encompass “CHN“ = PRC! via Taiwan, 300 kW at 2 degrees. Aoki/NDXC shows what it really is: “9465 1300-1329 TWN Nippon no Kaze”il bon ue Kor Paochung 1-7“(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 9830, May 6 at 2227, VOT English to NAm is on today but very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330+, May 6 at 1755, JBA carrier off-frequency, and 7490 no signal; no signs of WBCQ-6, 500 kW transmitter testing now or at any other random chex today.
As of 1608 UT May 7, AW`s last twit was two days ago:
“Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ May 5 — Burning the kilowatts here. Still testing. More this week for the nations superstation. Still much to do. Classic WBCQ on air 7490/5130 kHz tonight with great programming. Please listen and support us. Nice day here in beautiful northern Maine. Fresh air. Blue skies. Any. Moving“.
Among the great programming was another classical music hour, `Encore` from Radio Tumbril, 0000-0100 UT Monday May 6 on WBCQ 7490v, but I apologize for listening to mono webcast since I was busy at the computer.
Website has sizing problem. You need to shrink it in order to see some linx, such as the Valve at lower left corner which I finally see for the first time today. And click here for playlist at lower right corner. I could not reach the current one during the programme, but as of 5/7 I do see the 5/5/19 one. All of this rather slow-loading. Lots of good reaxion at https://www.tumbril.co.uk/coments-page (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Tue May 7 at 1310, WRMI gospel huxter in English lamenting that there are “1600 religions, all of them against Jesus Christ“; furthermore he is fighting Cuban pulse jamming, always a risk if you broadcast on this frequency shared with Cuban exile programming. Scheduled at 1300-1330 Tuesday is `Gospel of the Kingdom`, and there is NO Cuban programming any other day of week during this slot, altho there are two DX programs in Spanish, on Wed & Thu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9475 & 5830, May 7 at 1313, both WTWW-1 frequencies are AWOL, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINIG DIGEST)
** U S A. 12050, May 7 at 1421, WEWN Spanish with distorted modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9490, May 6 at 0504, S7-S8 of open carrier, or JBM? Nothing sked now but both Nauen & Issoudun are registered until 0500: RMI Spanish via France to Cuba, i.e. R. República; and NHK Japanese via Germany to ME — more likely the latter not turned off yet, as I think RR is not currently really running that late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
