** BRAZIL. I soon published a correxion but at least two editors ignored it and published the original error. Correct frequency was 5939.506, while 5939.806 was a typo (or misreading my scribbled original log note). So here it is AGAIN. Please publish it correctly. Glenn
5939.506, Aug 11 at 0635, JBA carrier in 5935 WWCR splash, but no problem from 5945 NZ, no doubt also RVM, always off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) BTW, Wolfgang Bueschel has just remeasured this at 5939.507, Aug 24 at 2338
** CUBA. 5055, Aug 25 at 0048, Rebelde/RHC leapfrog mixing product again of 5025 over 5040 another 15 kHz, S3-S6, but no reverse on 5010 leaving WRMI in the clear. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 4765, Aug 25 at 0057, R. Progreso is OFF again, rather than normal start at 0030. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** MADAGASCAR. “Hi Ron, Today at 1404 I had JBA talk on 6135 as 49m is almost faded out here except for 6170 NZ. Could this 6135 today be anything but Madagascar long path? I thought maybe you would have checked today as I have not yet gone thru all recent or new reports about this. Glenn“ to Ron Howard, Aug 24.
“Hi Glenn, Was not at the beach this morning, but I’m very confident you were in fact hearing Madagascar, because recently they have been having very decent reception on 6135, about 1330+. Here is a typical recent reception of their African music/singing – http://bit.ly/2EmlyoO Ron, California“
Also in the NASWA Flashsheet, Ralphus W Perry, IL, reports Mad on 6135.01 Aug 23 at 0408 with “unmistakable chanting“, 0410 Christian hymn on Sunday; vs presumed Brasil on 6134.82 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, Aug 25 at 0057, S Asian song, S1-S3 and fluttery on near-transpolar path, very brief announcement and off at 0058* as SLBC is now scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2048 monitoring: confirmed Monday August 24 from 1800:47 on IRRS, 7290 via Bulgaria, S9+25; tuned in earlier via UTwente at 1745, Iran still on; retune 1758 I think the IRRS carrier has just cut on, and a few sex before 1759 cuts on music modulation but with heavy pumping, slow SAH from another carrier maybe still Iran but fortunately no mod from it. RTTYish warble from 7291 as always, and rough IRRS mod, some plus/minus 10 splash. Just before 1800 IRRS sign-on with deleted? Milano PO box, Feature Story News headlines before WOR starts. Spot-checked every 5 minutes or so on my recording finds it intact, no more pumping, but ending just before 1830, my closing cut off after “standa — [rdisclaimer]“. My editor is leaving a second or two of dead air at end of file, which worx on WRMI to prevent overlap, but not enough for IRRS.
Also confirmed UT Tue Aug 25 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, poor S6-S8 direct and somewhat undermodulated but improving.
Also confirmed UT Tue Aug 25 at 0330, brand-new time on WRMI 5800, good S7-S9 to Maine SDR, altho aimed SSE.
2100+UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5850 to NW [NEW][System F sked adds 5010 to S]
Good but unfortunately this means the best broadcast across USA on 5850 will be the last airing of the week rather than the first, as I am not inclined to change my produxion schedule to earlier than Thursday afternoons.

** U S A. 5800, UT Tue Aug 25 at 0230, WRMI amid a Spanish DX program about Guyana rejecting VOA MW relay to Venezuela, not sure what but is // 7780 where RAE is scheduled on System D. This matches last night when WOR 7780 at 0230 also appeared on 5800. But the System H sked still has a gap at 0230-0300 daily for 5800 or any other frequency it might employ. The 0300-0400 block on System H 5800 is also empty on UT Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon, where we already discovered Radio República has just been inserted — but keeping it a secret? To stave off jamming sure to follow eventually (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 7505, Aug 25 at 0129, WRNO is still off, surprise2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. UT Aug 25 at 0115 UT, as the Republican national “convention“ is underway, at least on TV, I make a quick sweep across the MW band while some woman is talking as if in a venue, and hear her only on these major signals: 750 WSB Atlanta, 1170 KFAQ Tulsa, 1510 WLAC Nashville. Otherwise most of them continue with silly ballgames or their own far-right talk. Ho, hum. [I did not do any such survey last week Democratically]. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 1420, Aug 25 around 0105 UT, Mexican music mixing [Mexmxmix] with English weather sounds like “KWTE first forecast“, the two making a medium SAH. No fuzzily-similar call listed on 1420, but so many radio stations rely on TV stations for weather, and the closest-fuzzy TV rhyme to that is KWTV right here in OK, which would correlate with nearest, Hobart OK, KTJS on 1420. Checking the KTJS+ cluster website http://www.foxradiook.com/ there is no indication of wx source, but there is a link to KWTV9 for news; so that all seems circumstantially likely. Soon there`s Sean which would be a third station, not country KTJS.
1420 Spanish loops more E/W than N/S so probably Unitedstatesian. At 0107 UT, automated wrong TC for “Las 8 de la noche con 6 minutos“, so that narrows it down to CDT. Then 0109, “no se equivoque — La Zeta“ which is the slogan of KBHS Hot Springs AR, 5000/87 watts ND. Oh2, official sunset there in August was 0100 UT! Sept: 0015 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
