** BRAZIL. 4885.023, Sept 22 at 0551, Rádio Clube do Pará music measured here on VP signal, but at least I can hear it, even tho or because of using my indoor longwire, after a storm which deposited more than one inch of rain, also attenuating if not eliminating the high line noise level. Recheck at 0619 during multi-station ID including some MW outlets, which is what Pará does, not the other ZY on 4885, Rdif. Acreana. However, when measuring this, I heard a beat with another carrier; too early for Korea. Either it`s Acreana underneath, or the Pará carrier is slightly unstable. Richard Langley had recently recorded 4885 overnight and reported nothing from Brasil but Pará (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL [and non]. 9630.408, Sept 22 at 0610, R. Aparecida music on perpetual offset.
9664.847, Sept 22 at 0615, Voz Missionária preaching in Portuguese, another perpetual offset, both with fair signals more than usual and not much else on 31mb now.
9645.00, Sept 22 at 0609, JBA carrier between the two Brazilians which once would surely have been R. Bandeirantes, but doubt it has resumed SW. Per EiBi, it`s Vatican Radio, Sunday-only Ukrainian at 0605-0700, altho CNR1 Beijing is also on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 10870, Sept 22 at 1255, CNR1 jammer, Chinese talk; but no more in the 9s, 10s, 11s, nor 12s, 13s, by 1305, except JBA 11640, VP 11785 and better 11825 before 1300 which are also probably CNR1 jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, Sept 22 at 0557, RHC English is S9+10 but suptorted; 6165 a JBA carrier S7-S9, but JBM? 6100 however is S9+20/30 with good mod. 6060, originally A-19 scheduled for English at 0500-0700, has been gone for months, but still in Aoki/NDXC (along with Spanish 0000-0500), not EiBi. 5040 is OFF already altho it was VG a few minutes earlier. Typically they turn it off before the English hour concludes! (BTW, last Sunday, Wolfgang Bueschel says Esperanto at 0700 on 6100 was absent; I`m not awake that late). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 13700, Sept 22 at 1305, RHC fails to provide any FM spurblobs today; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sun Sept 22 at 0603,, no signal from VON. Oops, I meant to check whether audible on 11770- or 9690-, but dozed before getting around to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2000 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept 21 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S7-S9 after 2058 IS & ID loop. My duplicated intro almost succeeds.

** U S A. 9330.00, Sept 21 at 2057, rock music at S9+30 and still past 2105. The WBCQ 500 kW SuperStation is obviously back on air testing after several weeks off; supposedly all afternoon and evening it will be on 12120 as registered, but now at 2107 check RTTY from presumed NAU Isabela, Puerto Rico is still unencumbered, whew. At 2110, 9330 is concluding a non-Peggy Lee version of “Fever“, and has surged to S9+40. More and more rock, but break in transmission at 2146*-*2148.
I`ve kept an eye on AW`s twits, but so far no advance or current notice of this activity. Only next day do I find these, with timestamps in unknown zone, EDT? Or UT+1 from my computer?
“Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ
Worlds Superstation back on air. Testing now on 9330khz. 500kw. Watch them electric meters spin!! 5:48 PM – 21 Sep 2019 from Maine, USA
Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ
Superstation back testing last night on 9330 kHz. Sounding good everywhere. Tonight on Area51 Radio NewYork International with John P Lightening. For 21 Years -radio madness. Tune 5130khz. Why do we do this? For radio freedom of expression. Transmitter building for 500kw. 5:09 AM – 22 Sep 2019“
Meanwhile I posted this to the WOR iog at 2132 UT Sept 21: “Superstation finally back on, 9330.00 blasting up to 40 over 9 before and after 2100 with rock. 12120 still occupied by RTTY from presumed NAU Puerto Rico. Glenn“
At 2252 some narration over music. Quick AW legal IDs fire sharp at ToH 2200 & 2300 over music. But 2301 full WBCQ canned ID and switch to “Sound the general alarm!“ introducing `Radio TimTron Worldwide` which must be // 5130+v where originally scheduled this hour, inaudible here; mostly playing novelty tunes. Break off air at 2346*-*2347 and music after that may be test fill rather than RTTWW? I don`t hear him any more. But at 0000 Sept 22, Falling Star Network logo, WBCQ jingle ID as on Area 51, and `GRITS` show; now only S9+10/20. Seems to be live/current as mentions date September 21.
9330.00 checked again at 0127 Sept 22, now amid `Lumpy Gravy Show` with Larry Will & Jane, but mentioning 5110 more than once including at 0130, so must be a very old replay.
The 500? kW audiblizes this on my noised ATS-909 next to the TVs and computer. Seems to go off at 0150, and I don`t check on better receivers until 0329 when there is still a VP carrier on 9330.00, so maybe it stayed on but propagation outfaded it (and/or power greatly reduced). BTW, at this time it`s stronger than JBA carrier remnants of 9395 & 9955 WRMI, despite its southern-advantage. Nothing further heard on 9330 morning of Sept 22, but maybe will resume Sunday afternoon/evening? Not by 1700 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, Sept 21 at 2108 tune-in, Rudy Espinal WRMI ID in Spanish only, odd time! Because it`s within a “Back to the Music“ oldies block per Bob Biermann after him, S9+10/20. Which reminds me, are they relaying VOA News anymore? Haven`t run across it lately which used to be at unpredictable times within such hours; but maybe quit after VOA stopped updating newscasts wherever they were accessing them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Sunday September 22 at 1253, `I Love Italy` acknowledging reception reports. In Italian, quite different accent than we hear from Roberto Scaglione in Sicilia; I wonder if this guy be an expatriate. Nothing about the show on the WRMI Programming page; scheduled Sundays 1245-1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Sept 21 at 2112, WTWW-1 AWOL from both possible frequencies, as is almost always the case now. No loss! with PPPP finally laid to rest? But why would ministry HQ in Laporte CO be cool with WTWW mainly airing Ted`s rock/ham stuff on #2 transmitter? If they cared, could insist on PPPP appearing on #2 if #1 be down.
5085, Sat Sept 21 at 2330, WTWW-2 is not on, when `Theatre Organ in the Ozarx` used to air. Still off at 2358, but on by 0032 Sept 22 with rock; next check 0127, Ted ham stuff, not TOITO either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1480, Sept 22 at 1350 UT, KNGO Dallas in Vietnamese with no QRM from closer KQAM Wichita which ought to be dominant by now; except a slow SAH: maybe KQAM carrier on, but unmodulated. 1410 KGSO Wichita is normally loud. See also 1520 log for more Vietnamese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1520, Sunday Sept 22 at 1311 UT, W&M Vietnamese chat mixing with KOKC OKC, almost same level thanx to KOKC`s self-attenuation; and with slow SAH of almost 1 Hz, 56/minute = 0.93. From here, can`t null one to hear the other. Obviously it`s KYND Cypress (Houston) TX active again with such programming, and I wonder if it`s same as on 1560 KGOW? Yes! On second receiver they match with a slight echo. What about 1480 KNGO Dallas? That one was supposedly duplicating KGOW. But they are not, now and later chex; similar chat, but at times one is in music, the others talking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 22 at 1246, S5-S7 carrier, but can`t make out any modulation. NBC Bougainville or VOI Palangkaraya (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 8000, Sept 22 at 1307, JBA carrier, intriguing; not a listed SOH/CNR1 jammer frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
