** ALASKA [and non]. 6045, April 11 at 1222, KNLS English with heavy QRM from 
V. of Freedom, KOREA SOUTH, ex-5917.4v. At least one of them playing music. 
This single KNLS English hour has a second frequency:

7355, April 11 at 1223, moderate Cuban jamming against no Martí ever anymore, 
blocking weak carrier from presumed KNLS in English. Tnx a lot, Arnie! (Glenn 

** COLOMBIA. 5910.354V, April 11 at 0631, Alcaraván Radio is back after absence 
several nights, now good S9-S7 with peppy troppy music not suitable for the 
nightmiddle. No sign of the other HJDH, La Voz de tu Conciencia, circa 6010v 

** CUBA. 6165, April 11 at 0635, guess what: RHC English back on here ex-6180 
after three days. Maybe Arnie got our message about all the collisions on 6180; 
or maybe it`s a mistake, old habits dying hard by the RadioCuba sloppyrators. 
6180 still shows on an ``updated`` sked via Wolfgang Büschel today. Remains // 
6000, 6100, about equally undermodulated, and 6060 more modulated. Something`s 
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9535, April 11 at 1102, RHC is good already, just opening `Despertar 
con Cuba` with Bárbara Betancourt for the next trihour. 7340 is JBA; 6100, 6060 
and 6000 are good. Nothing audible on 11 or 13 MHz bands this early (Glenn 

** CUBA. 13740, April 11 at 1358, RHC Spanish, seems under S9+30 open carrier 
prior to CRI English relay via a different transmitter. Another transmitter 
with CRI on 9570 is not off quite yet. Better coordinated today on 13740: at 
1400 RHC stops and CRI opening English news in the clear. 

13700 is not off today for RHC, at 1400 starting 48 minutes of `Sonido Cubano`, 
``música cubana de todos los tiempos``, first song titled ``Amor Prohibido``. 
13670, yet another RHC transmitter at 1402 still on with S9+20 of dead air 

** CUBA [and non]. 7435, April 11 at 1227, jamming against no Martí anymore, 
instead blocking CRI in Chinese, eastward from Beijing site; Commies vs 
Commies! Also 7355 jamming against ALASKA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING 

** KOREA SOUTH. 5917.4v, April 11 at 1222, no signal from Voice of Freedom, 
since per Ron Howard, on April 10 it moved back to 6045.0.

6045, April 11 at 1222, at least two signals making fast SAH, music from one of 
them, i.e. Voice of Freedom colliding with KNLS ALASKA, q.v. Now will this VOF 
start drifting downward like 5920 did? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 550, April 11 at 1151, ``Amanecer Ranchero de la Super-Estación``, 
i.e. XEPL, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 570, April 11 at 1126, ``BJB, música regional mexicana``, repeated, 
i.e. XEBJB, Monterrey NL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 610, April 11 at 1149, different music than 650, but at 1200, XEGS 
Guasave, Sinaloa, joins 650 for `Noticiero Altavoz`, and the pair are 
synchronized. 650 always with a bigger signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING 

** MEXICO. 650, April 11 at 1149, neat singing ID as ``Somos Grupo Chávez``, 
``y Noticiero Altavoz``, UT -6 TC, but not yet, more music. News starts at 
1200, from XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa when sibling station XEGS 610 joins in 

** MEXICO. 790-, April 11 at 1129, Radio Fórmula ID in passing, makes rumbling 
het vs lots of CCI, primarily 790.0 KURM Rogers, Arkansas. From SW, presumed 
XENT, La Paz, BCS. John Wilkins, CO, reported to NRC IDXD, ``Tough copy and no 
ID but XENT has been on this off-frequency for years``, 789.96, which was his 
measurement, not mine, but I do not dispute it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING 

** MEXICO. 800-, April 11 at 1130, ad for Laboratorios Camacho en Fresno, 
California, 800#, presumably a medicine mill; full ID as ``800 AM, --- 
internacional, Radio Cañón, (street address), Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México, 
Grupo Siete!``. More plugs for Labs, 29:6 TC by autoYL, music. Nice to hear 
XEROK as often inaudible at night; near-local KQCV OKC nulled as much as 
possible, with which it makes a SAH of 104/minute on the low side = 1.73 Hz. 
Not long before KQCV takes over (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 830, April 11 at 1133, Spanish dominating from SSW, while WCCO is 
JBA to zero in auroral conditions (670 WSCR Chicago is also JBA to zero); 1134 
mis-time-check thrice as 6:32 (UT -5 CDT zone), and 1135 UT as 6:33; 1137 WCCO 
gaining a little; 1143 I make sure the SS is NOT from SSE which would be 
Louisiana. At 1146 it`s alone with ID in passing as ``La Caliente`` which is 
XELN, Linares, Nuevo León. That town is closer to due S from here than SSW; SE 
of Monterrey on the railroad to Ciudad Victoria, intersecting Rio Conchos, near 
the Tamaulipas state line (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U K [non]. 5875, April 11 at 0628, African song, poor S3-S5. HFCC shows it`s 
BBC French, 27 degrees from ASCENSION. 0629 horns and African language, now 
converted to Hausa from same (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: unfortunately awake Wed April 11 at 
1051, I try 9455 WRMI where WOR is supposed to be getting its first SW airing 
this week at 1030: straining, only detect a JJBA carrier, and by 1058 still not 
enough signal to recognize if it`s I. Nothing at all audible on any other WRMI 
frequency including 9955. 31 mb is just about dead, EXCEPT: 9805, wall-of-noise 
S9+10 Cuban jamming against inaudible Martí; if Cuba is propagating, why not 
neighbor Okeechobee?

No change in 9455 after 1100, but now 9955 is on and JBA S1-S2 with RAE in 
Portuguese. (NOT at 1200 any more, as RAE was quoted by Communication of the 
British DX Club); by 1145 recheck, both 9955 and // 9455 have built up to 
respectable signals, S8 on 9455. So was 9455 really on but not propagating 
before 1100?? But I digress; better luck, next WORs:

Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:

** U S A. 7505v, April 11 at 0626, very poor signal, in Chinese? WRNO still on 
at 1228, now S9+30 praise music in Chinese, somewhat distorted modulation and 
occasional bursts of noise or over-modulation; 1231 YL Chinese talk. Is the 
entire expanded overnight transmission in Chinese, 0300-1300? (Glenn Hauser, 

** U S A. 5085, April 11 at 1056, WTWW is on at S9+30 of C&W music, Ted 
announcement as ``from a casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, at an ungodly hour``; 
why? Why not? Is gambling OK with passed-away Pastor Pete Peters whose heirs 
own this thing? Also with the weak parasitic spurs circa 5072.1 and 5097.9
