** U S A. 7505v, June 11 at 0612, WRNO is still OFF. Have not heard a sign of it for over a week; not that II miss it. Is there anything about this at http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/ ? Of course not! But webcast is running June 12 at 0440 in English, and headed by this astounding claim: “Today, one out of every six people in the world owns a shortwave radio and another 40% have Internet access“. Sez who? Ask six random people if they have SW and one will say yes? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15610, June 11 at 2026 is S9-S7 in English, definitely on as usual, tho Ivo said June 10 that it`s “very rarely on the air“, scheduled at 19-24 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15825, June 11 at 2027, WWCR is S9+15/25, obvious sporadic E boost above normal JBA signal; I keep an eye on the DXmaps MUF, but remains way below 88 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330.120V, June 12 at 0145, WBCQ with dead air instead of Brother HyStairical, still so at 0217. Slighty varying, measured at 0154. First noticed on caradio scan. Offset frequency means NOT the superstation, which it now seems won`t be on before July, maybe testing late June. We can hardly wait for the flat-earthers to start programming as the Super-stition.
5130.437, June 12 at 0157, WBCQ also on here, also dead air and still at 0217 recheck; maybe modulated earlier for UT Wed ham show?
No signal on 7490v, normally off by now anyway; not a trace of 3265v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
