** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, UT Sunday April 8 at 0200, WRMI 9395 goes from music, 
ID, to JIP Radio Tirana already in programming rather than opening 
announcement. At least it`s in English, but the autorecording timer must be 
askew (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALGERIA [non]. 6050, April 7 at 0455, ME song at S9, off at 0458* without 
ID. It`s one of the TDA relays via FRANCE, 500 kW at 162 degrees from Issoudun. 
Fits between HCJB and ELWA usage. From HFCC A-18, here`s the full unverified 
schedule; alternating azimuths of 162 and 194:

0400-0500  6050
0400-0459  7295
0500-0600  7295 
0500-0600  9535
0600-0700  9620
1800-1959 13820
1900-2059 11765
1900-2000 11985
1900-2100 12060
2000-2200  9655

There are also scads of imaginary registrations for the ORG or BEC sites within 
Algeria, which have been under construxion forever and will presumably replace 
France if they ever exist. None of them are on the same frequencies as via ISS 

** CUBA. 6100, April 7 at 0501, RHC English is S9 but JBM; 6165 is S9+20, 
better but undermodulated with hum; ho hum, didn`t check the others (Glenn 

** CUBA [and non]. 15440, 15510, 15580, 15720 all approx., April 7 at 1256, RHC 
is already on instead of *1300 with 15370 spouting/sprouting spurs. Also on low 
side, 15300, 15231, 15761, 15092, trace 15021. Closer ones are audible in both 
AM and FM modes today. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

When strong these can spread almost 10 kHz, at 1357 check: 15510 Cublob QRMs 
15504 Bangladesh. At 1404, 15580 abuts JBA carrier from 15575 KBSWR (Glenn 

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15410, April 7 at 1403, good S9 to S9+10 signal in Chinese, 
unlike any other on band --- it`s CRI this hour only, on one of ubiquitous 308 
degree antennas via Kashgar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, April 7 at 0503, XEPPM is still on with Spanish song, S7-S3, a 
bit of dead air, no sign-off but cut at 0506.4* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING 

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1640, April 8 circa 0250 UT circa Hennessey-Bison OK, 
dead air from KZLS just a few miles from transmitter site but apparently in 
side null, as turning up the volume I have no problem hearing stupid sports 
talk, no doubt WTNI Biloxi MS, with the usual rippling SAH between them (Glenn 

** OKLAHOMA. 87.9 MHz FM, April 7 at 1809 UT, I find myself in Del City, SW 
suburb of OKC, as I start an FM bandscan, already an OOB signal here in Spanish 
--- gospel huxter, shortly mentions Pacific Garden Mission, Chicago, i.e. those 
who bring us `Desencadenados` = `Unshackled`, are participating in piracy. Also 
heard programming from them later. 1815 UT ID as Radio Calvario en Oclajoma 
City, with a frequency I missed but presumably this. 

Despite proximity of full-power local nearby on 88.1, this has no problem 
elbowing it aside, but as I drive south, by SE 134th St it`s starting to lose 
out. Later thru central and NW OKC I am still hearing it altho not solid; 
obviously beyond Part 15. Mentions Calvary Baptist Church in SW OKC, and 
website radiobautistacalvario.com Add https://www, a ``secure connexion`` and 
very slow loading, but finally does. This page does not mention an FM frequency 
for Radio Calvario, just webcast. But their FB is blatant about 87.9 FM:

``Radio Calvario transmitió en vivo. 28 de marzo a las 17:34 ·
Escuche en estos momentos el servicio en VIVO de la Iglesia Bautista el 
Calvario en Oklahoma City Predicando el Pastor Santiago Merlo
87.9 Fm en OKC

This must be it with a map leading to SW 50 and Pennsylvania in OKC:
I vaguely recall having traced this a few years ago in another visit to OKC, 
but can`t find it in my records. Maybe it was another Spanish Christian pirate 
and/or under another name.

The WTFDA FM Database lists only the two legal 87.9s in the USA; no pirates, 
but there are lots more besides this one. WWJD? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING 

** SPAIN. 15520, Saturday April 7, REE is starting with satellite info, good 
here beamed away from us, but nil on 17855 supposedly for North America (Glenn 

** UGANDA [non]. 15240-, Saturday April 7 at 1620, R. Munansi via WWRB 
inbooming with continuous hilife music. Since reactivated a couple months ago, 
has always been JBA or even a JBA carrier slightly on the low side, but today 
must be getting a sporadic-E short-skip boost. Mobile with the BST-1 caradio, I 
enjoy the music straight thru and there are no announcements, no ID break at 
1700 hourtop, but finally a bit of talk in Luganda? mentioning Munansi at 1719, 
and back to music. Recheck at 1801 in talk; and ditto at 2038 last check (Glenn 

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1924 monitoring: 6190-CUSB, Saturday April 7 
at 1431 and later, no signal from HLR via UTwente SDR. But Alan Gale, England, 

``Hi Glenn, World of Radio was audible right the way through again on 6190 kHz 
today, but the signal was a bit down on last week, though did come up slightly 
around 1447 UT.

Thankfully the Chinese QRM was barely audible, so the programme was
readable all the way through. Hopefully after HLR's 2 week TX break the band 
will be opening up by 1430 and a bit stronger for the full half hour. 73 for 
now, Alan``

Not confirmed, Sat Apr 7 at 2130 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB --- too much noise at my 
mobile location. Sat 2300 on WRMI 7780 missed during a movie, the farce ``Death 
of Stalin`` at the OKC Museum of Art. UT Sun 0200 on WRMI 7780 WOR 1924 
confirmed fair at 0215. Also confirmed UT Sun April 8 starting at 0324 on 
WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO. Next:
