** ANGUILLA [and non]. 11775, March 6 at 2035, CB is off again, (and 11780 
Brazil is not yet on again). 11775 is still off March 7 at 1421, (but 11780 
Brasil is audible) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 15438, 15302, 15233, 15162, 15095, 15020 approx., March 6 at 
1508, RHC spurs out of 15370-AM. 15438 QRMs Saudi on 15435; 15233 has some 
FModulation; 15162 some audio; traces on the bottom pair.

15508, 15439, 15302, 15232, 15163, 15089, approx., March 7 at 1427 and 1449 
chex, RHC distorted spurs, at first no FModulation, but vs a 15440 carrier (AWR 
Urdu via Austria 1400-1430), ruining RHC`s real 15230, traces on the further 
ones, at least with F# tone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, March 6 at 2041, JBA carrier only, presumed OMAN, which 
normally is totally blocked by the now absent RHC English hour; yet RHC 15370 
is S4-S5 in French. If 15140 reactivated or maybe on another frequency, expect 
English to move an hour earlier to 19-20, from Sunday March 11 with the 
imposition of daylight-shifting upon that running dog of Yanqui imperialism, 

** KOREA SOUTH. 5918.789, March 7 at 1413, S4-S6 in presumed Korean, music, 
varying slightly, Voice of Freedom, which Ron Howard has been reporting varying 
around this reactivated frequency, nominal 5920.

This correlates with Ron`s latest report, today: ``March 7 - Voice of Freedom 
continues their downward spiral. Thanks to input from Dave Valko, who measured 
VOF at 1053, on 5918.91v, and at 1103, as 5918.902v. My monitoring from 1117 to 
1216 had them about 5918.91v, down to 5918.76v. Ron California`` (Glenn Hauser, 

** MADAGASCAR. 6135, March 7 at 1410 open carrier at S4-S6 over JBA jamming; 
still there but slightly weaker until cutoff at 1459:56*. So is it RNM by 
longpath failing to modulate, or something else?

RNM`s other frequency 5010v has not been reported lately, but Ron Howard says 
WRMI has already started testing 5010 at other hours, so time is running out 

** NIGERIA. 7255-, March 7 at 0707, NO signal from VON which would surely be 
inbooming if on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, March 5 at 2017, this REE transmitter is back on after several 
days` silence, so was it fixed while down? Of course not. Now it has squealing 
spurs peaking about 3 kHz above and below. Meanwhile clear on 15500 (Glenn 

** U S A. 670, March 5 at 1959 UT on caradio in downtown Enid, WSCR Chicago ads 
and ID, atop CCI presumed KLTT Denver; less than a sesquihour after local mean 
noon, extended groundwave over one megameter. 720 also has a weak signal, 
presumed WGN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1919 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday March 6 at 0030 
on WRMI 7730, VG; same time on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: JBA carrier. 

WOR 1919 also confirmed Tuesday March 6 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, poor. Resumption 
of 11580 for this cannot come soon enough for better reception, but maybe not 
until A-18.

BUT, WOR no longer on // 9455 Tue at 2030, instead a gospel huxter now // 9395 
which means no Argentina in Italian either. It`s `Walking in Power` which has 
several more times scattered in the WRMI schedules. WOR also gone from 9455 an 
hour later, 2130 UT Tue: still // 9395 now with `Hope for the Heart` app plug 
at 2123 and 2131 it`s `Call to Worship` on both 9s. Possibly these combinations 
were in error, still not shown on the WRMI skedgrids updated March 2? We`ll see 
what happen subsequent days and next week.

I did not finish WOR 1920 until circa 0430 UT March 7, so 1919 also replayed UT 
Wed Mar 7 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330.2v-CUSB, confirmed JBA.

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:

** U S A. 17775, March 7 at 1455, KVOH is on already with jazz prélude at S9 
--- going to be a good reception day; by 1536 is steady S9+20 with 
musicalabanza. Expect this to start one UT hour earlier from March 12 due to 
imposition of DST as much in Cuba as in California; never mind not quite yet in 
México. But from 1400v, that will subtract an hour of ionospheric build-up time 
in the mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9980, March 7 at 1538, WWCR is OFF instead of BSing, clearing the way 
for the 9982.5 fax from Hawaii. Did the FAA ever complain about this WOOB 
broadcaster messing it up? As in EiBi:
9982.5 0519-1600 HWA KVM70 Fax Honolulu Oc nm
The fax is quite strong here, but no comparison to blasting WWCR when it`s on. 
EiBi`s readme.txt no longer explains what site ``nm`` stands for. In 2013 when 
I last logged it, EiBi listed the site as `k` which under HWA merely meant 
Honolulu. I vaguely recall there was a real nm place once cited, but can`t find 
it now.

9980 WWCR is still off at 1738 March 7 check; could this mean that WWCR has 
dropped TOM? Hardly likely. The other three remain: 12160 VG, 13845 & 15825 JBA 
carriers. WWCR still claims to use 9980 all day, and has put up March 11+ and 
March 26-May 31 planned transmitter skeds:
