** ALASKA. 11755, Feb 8 at 1511, expressive/assertive talk by OM in Russian, presumably gospel huxter, response by YL with some laughter. KNLS is now scheduled here this hour in HFCC as the only 11755 anywhen, anywhere (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** BRAZIL. 9665-9667, Feb 9 at 0142, no signal from Voz Missionária, usually the strongest ZY remaining on 31m; propagation OK since I have a JBA signal on 9818.6 where R. Nove de Julho resides. Aparecida appears on 9630.3 much weaker than VM would be, hetting another weakie on 9630.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CANADA. 335-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0708 UT, dash and YLD, ND beacon, 1000 watts from Chapleau, Ontario.
351-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0710 UT, dash and YKQ, NDB, 500 watts from Fort Rupert – Waskaganish, Quebec.
406-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0718 UT, dash and YLJ, NDB 40 watts from Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan; noise level is lower in the 400s than the 300s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also USA for two more
** CUBA [and non]. 6145, Feb 8 at 0528, RHC English undermodulated S9+10 mixing about equally with another station, better modulation, i.e. RRI in Romanian this hour intended no further than France. Both would be in clear if RHC had stayed on 6165; but before and after 05-06, would conflict with other Europeans. Meanwhile, 6100 is S9+20/30 but JBM, and so is 6000; 6060 is still in Spanish; and so is 5040 at 0534 and squealing too.
6145, Feb 8 at 0655, S9+10 and undermodulated; 6100 S9+30/40 and UM; 6000 S9+20/30 and suptorted; only 6060 with good modulation and S9+30/40 now in English and so is 5040 and squealing too. Something`s always wrong at RHC ::: (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15230, Feb 8 at 1501, this RHC is S9 but distorted; usually its mod is OK, while // 15140 at S9+30 continues to be distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 13835, 13767, 13633, 13566, 13495 approx. vs CODAR, Feb 8 at 1504, FM/AM spurblobs with F# whine out of 13700-AM RHC, ~67 kHz intervals, but each so wide it`s hard to pin them. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 13610, 13674, 13806 approx., Feb 8 at 2318, FM/AM spurblobs with F# tone at about 65 kHz intervals out of 13740-AM RHC, no doubt same defective transmitter as in the mornings on 13700. Another might be around 13870 but blocked by RTTY. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15370, Feb 8 at 2320, RHC Spanish S9+20 but distorted, OSOB, about the same sound as on mushy // 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 5820, Feb 9 at 0110, VP M&W in English mentioning some www. and music. Nothing listed here and doubt it`s one of those Denmark stations. Rather a leapfrog mixing product of 6180 CRI relay over 6000 RHC another 180 kHz beyond, both Quivicán site per Aoki/NDXC. But neither he nor EiBi will make an entry for this real transmission on 5820. I did not think at the time to check for // audio, but this has been reported before. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 5010-5040, Feb 9 at 0135, Radio Rebelde is splattering out to this range from 5025; while RHC is also splattering out to 5030-5050 from its 5040; axually, can`t tell where one transition to the other between 5025 and 5040. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** MEXICO. 6185.7, Feb 8 at 0117, undermodulated talk; 0153 still with jazz, also suptorted, typical of Radio Educación — and there is no signal on 6185.0. Someone must have bumped the XEPPM transmitter. At least puts it a little further from the collision on 6180 but still getting splashed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 4045-USB, Feb 9 at 0119, S9+20 of blues, but already off at 0124 check after some other tuning.
Many posts here say it`s Ze-ke`s Attic, which moved to 4107 at 0126:
This thread covers logs on both frequencies.
4107-USB, I independently find him here at 0147, blues? song at S9+10, 0148 DJ Ze-ke recognized saying he`s waiting for a report from the Mojave Desert; 0149 a familiar torch song, which someapp IDs as “What`s New“ by Billie Holiday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** PERU. 5980, Feb 8 at 2344, JBA carrier, and like the last few nights I am not hearing any Cuban jamming above the general band noise level. It won`t be long before Radio Chaski cutoff be too much before night here if it stay around this time. At 14 degrees south, its sunset varies only about one hour over the course of a year, as early as 2230 in June, currently 2320; but ours gets later and later, 0005 UT now, a semihour later in a month. Anyhow, tonight the autocutoff comes at 2352:59.5* having surpassed 2353:00. Last check was Feb 3 until 2353:10.5, i.e. 11 seconds later, 5 days earlier, averaging 2.2 seconds earlier per noctem (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY [and non]. 5960-, Feb 8 at 2328 no signal from VOT English, only a JBA carrier offset-minus from XJPBS, EAST TURKISTAN, so Mighty KBC may be clear tonight. Oops, 2343 recheck, VOT is on very late with music at S9/+10. 2355 IS is still running; 2356 pause and restart IS, now with one German ID at 2356:48 before cuts off at 2357:45*, just in time for The Mighty Farty KBC, which lux out again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 379-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0712 UT, ND beacon copied as RSE on 380, but nonesuch listed. Probably really RUE, 25 watts in Russellville, Arkansas.
410-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0720 UT, ND beacon JU, but nonesuch listed at dxinfocentre. Maybe 25-watt JUH, Jefferson – Ashe, North Carolina. Could it be miskeying? Was not hearing an H. Classaxe.com in fact does show that one as JU only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130.0, Feb 8 at 2355, this WBCQ is S9/+10 as IS and ID loop plays prior to Saturday`s Area 51. Seems a better signal now than we had been getting from it. Sometime after 0100 Feb 9, it`s GRITS Radio with someone sounding rather like Marion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5950, Feb 9 at 0124, WRMI is OFF, a rarity for this 24-hour service; but no help for 5952.4v Bolivia, which is also off despite being Saturday night. If 5950 still off around 0300, would be good for Ethiopia; but I`m busy listening then to `Weekend Radio` on WCLV webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5085, (and parasitic JBA spurs 5072.1 and 5097.9), UT Sun Feb 9 at 0120, Bob Heil is talking on WTWW-2, evidently just starting his anonymous theatre organ show at very odd time, which I continue to enjoy from one radio to one ear while DXing another radio into the other ear. Ends at 0152 with WTWW ID and promos (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. 1090, Feb 8 at 0700:50 to 0705:30 duration of SRN News hole of dead air after illegal ID as “AM 1090 KAAY“ failing to specify Little Rock CoL, and before resuming with gospel music. During this, XEAU Monterrey dominant from south, Spanish infomercial making SAH and another very weak unID with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** VATICAN. 15460, Feb 8 at 1459-1500* vocoder song, poor. HFCC shows it`s USAGM 14-15 Sat & Sun only in Kin-yarwanda, i.e. VOA via SMG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
