** ALGERIA [non]. 6105, Feb 12 at 0654, RTA via FRANCE with Arabic song, not 
Qur`an. As of Feb 2-3, Ivo Ivanov had concluded: 
``FRANCE, Telediffusion d'Algerie with Holy Qur`an Service via TDF Issoudun Feb 
2-3, no more French & National Cha?ne 1``
Updated winter B-17 of TDA Telediffusion d'Algerie via TDF Issoudun 
can be found here`` --- but this may not have been a permanent change; needs 
further monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Feb 12 at 0653, PMS is back in business; also 11775 at 1523 
Feb 12 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. WRMI(RAE) webcast, via which I have just confirmed WORLD OF 
RADIO, at 0500 Feb 12 switches to Radio Biafra --- sounds like same old program 
from months ago, probably zombie file not updated for a sesquimonth or more, 
and may well be run every night. At one point near end at 0530, YL claims the 
frequency [via France] was ``724`` instead of 7240. She has a lot of trouble 
with these numbers. WRMI is not on 11530 nor 9955 at this hour, no R. Biafra on 
SW. 0530 goes to World Music fill (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Re: ``223 kHz MCW, Feb 11 at 0709 UT tuned to 224, I get a dash and 
beacon ID starting with Y-, but too weak to be sure of next two letters. shows the only one around here is YKA in Kamloops BC. If 
it`s 3 letters starting with Y and a dash, chances are it`s Canadian``

``Hi Glenn: You may have heard YKA Kamloops but I think YYW Armstrong, Ontario, 
is more likely. It is hugely dominant on 223 kHz (+400 Hz for the CW ID) here 
in Michigan. See:
73, Andy Robins, Kalamazoo, Michigan USA``

YYW 223 Armstrong ON is also on the list. Don`t know how I 
overlooked it. There are two Armstrongs in ON, one on the QC border south of 
James Bay, and the other somewhere north of Thunder Bay. Coordinates for YYW 
point to the latter. Dxinfocentre includes coordinates for stations, classaxe 
does not, but the latter does include powers, 100 watts for this one, 500 W for 
much further YKA. Classaxe also shows state/provinces/countries where each has 
been logged, and OK could be added to YYW if it were a bit more definite.

About this Armstrong:,_Thunder_Bay_District,_Ontario
and even its airport, but WTFK?:

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. 415 kHz, Feb 12 at 0724 UT, CBC beacon ID on MCW; no, not 
Canada, but Cayman Brac (West End), 1000 watts and not reported before from OK 

** CUBA. 6000, Feb 12 at 0650, RHC is suptorted, but summarizing upcoming 
content including `DXers Unlimited` with Arnie Coro --- as if this is a restart 
of the one-hour broadcast, off-time? Arnie had been away recovering from 
surgery, but I can`t listen any further tonight. Did anyone hear DXUL resumed 
on any Sunday/UT Monday broadcast, and was it new or a repeat? Or was this a 
canned announcement failing to remove out-of-date info? 0652 into `Weekly 
Review`, best modulation on 6060 while 6100 & 6165 are also undermodulated. 
Somethings are always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15507, 15438, 15302, 15234, 15166, 15098, 15030, 14962, 14894, 14826, 
Feb 12 at 1521, RHC-FM spurs out of 15370-AM detectable circa these peaks at 
approx. 68 kHz intervals, the closer ones audible in FM detexion, the further 
ones at least with the F# tones. Not much above 15507 or below 14826. 
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 6190, Feb 12 at 1427, song could be in English; 1429 NHK `Sakura`` 
theme and 1430 Chinese. It`s NHK as scheduled going from Korean to Chinese 

** MEXICO [non]. 800, Feb 12 at 1333 UT, nulling KQCV OKC, no sign of XEROK, 
but another weak station in English. Ten minutes after sunrise here, long 
before sunrise in Ju?rez. Altho other lowband XEs are not heard either, XEROK 
should be detectable if anywhere near rated 50 kW. Need to check earlier (Glenn 

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Feb 11 at 1931, R. Herwa International via WRMI is on 
again this Sunday, having taken Sat-Sun Feb 3-4 off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX 

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Feb 12 at 1345 UT, quick headlines on Radio Oklahoma 
Network, from newsroom of News9 (KWTV 39 OKC), back to Triple Play Sports, KOKB 
Blackwell OK. Quite an affiliate list here of RON:
showing sub-networks each station takes; and bleeds into all neighboring states 
except Colorado, via border stations, or at least into extra-statal DMAs (Glenn 

** U S A. 417 kHz, Feb 12 at 0722 UT, beacon IC on MCW --- but none listed, 
rather IY at Charles City IA. There is only one dit/dah difference between C 
and Y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1916 monitoring: missed checking UT Mon Feb 12 at 0030 
on WBCQ 9330, but probably still off. Confirmed UT Mon Feb 12 from 0400 on Area 
51 webcast, and audible at 0412 on WBCQ 5129.84. Confirmed UT Mon Feb 12 at 
0430 on WRMI(RAE) webcast, but 9455 < 9955 are JBA carriers. Next:
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1917?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:

** U S A [and non]. 5129.85, Feb 12 at 1419, JBA carrier, must be WBCQ now 
all-day with BS. Expanded schedule means it is now barely possible to collide 
with the only other OOB station on 5130, which Aoki/NDXC currently shows as: 

``5130 Afghan Christian R. (R. Sadaye Zin[dagi]) 1500-1800 1234567 Pashto/Dari 
100 ND Bishkek KGZ 4252N 07459E TWR b17 R. Maranatha``
That`s nighttime in Kyrgyzstan, but full daytime in Maine and most of America. 
Maybe Bishkek could be heard on west coast if not WBCQ. You won`t find this in 
WRTH under Kyrgyzstan; but consult the cross-ref on page 520 which leads, where 
else, to CANADA! on page 460, whence this service is based (Glenn Hauser, OK, 

** U S A. 9455, // 9955, Mon Feb 12 at 1445, WRMI opening `Viva Miami` (tho I 
am not sure he calls it that any more; no standard ``Miami Vice`` opening 
theme), Jeff & Tha?s in Spanish, another repeat of their visit to Selangor 
State on the west coast of Malaysia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Feb 12 at 1334 UT, ``KSOK, Cowley county`s station for the 
hits, 103-3, The Mix`` from Ark City KS. Not really: 103.3 is K277CK (Glenn 

** U S A. 1540, Feb 12 at 1340 UT, no sign of a het from KGBC Galveston TX, 
which sometimes jumps to 1540.1+; just KXEL English mixing with ESPN-D Spanish 
from KZMP The Metroplex. And it`s too early for 1520 KYND to be heard stunting 
under KOKC, as owner said he wasn`t turning it on until 8 am = 1400 UT (Glenn 

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search on the rotatable DX-398, Feb 
12 at 1319-1327: 558-?, 594-WSW, 702-WSW, 774-NW, 828-NW, 846-NW, 882-?, 
936-WSW, 1098-W, 1566-NW. 

Our sunrise today 1323 UT. Immediately after above at 1327-1330, I switch to 
the R75 & longwire, but the only one still audible is 1566, presumably Korea 
South (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6135, Feb 12 at 1424, jamming at first seems free of carrier, 
then a rather strong but rough one amid the noise. Replying to my previous Feb 
10 log, Ron Howard says, 

``Hi Glenn, Back on Jan 27, at 1420, had a brief period of time that the N. 
Korean jamming was not active on 6135. Heard a definite carrier, but too weak 
to dig out any audio. Jamming started up again at 1422. So the carrier for sure 
was separate and distinct from the N. Korea jamming. Have not found another 
instance of the N. Korea jamming being silent before 1500. Ron California``

And Mauno Ritola, Finland, replied to that, ``I think it is Madagascar running 
open carrier for some reason. 73, Mauno``

But from here it seems the carrier is too strong for a long-path signal from 
Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
