These logs are excerpts from my daily all-band reports, mainly SWBC, also 
VHF/UHF, sometimes utility, ham, which may be found in several archives without 
much delay, such as

And compiled weekly along with extensive news from many other individuals and 
publications in DX LISTENING DIGEST:

All my MW DX reports starting August 2011 are archived in this forum with open 

All times and dates strictly UT. Rx: mostly DX-398 with internal antenna only 
or PL-880; NRD-545 with ALA-330S inside E-W or inside randomwire N-S; Nissan 
stock caradio as specified; ICR-75  E-W longwire

** MEXICO. 660, Nov 25 at 0127, mis-timecheck, ``7 con 26; es La Kaliente``, 
music, dominant from south. It`s 50/10 kW XEEY, Aguascalientes2 (Glenn Hauser, 

** MEXICO. 730, Nov 27 at 0152, YL DJ giving two phone numbers for 
requests/dedications, each only once and too fast for me to copy. (I thought I 
had a decent digit span.) She mentions Ciudad Jiménez, so I`m sure it`s the 
usual dominatrix, XEHB, Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua, certainly not desportive 

** MEXICO. 760, Nov 27 at 0148, conversation in Spanish, mentions pelota, so 
about sports, way over WJR and looping approx. ENE/WSW. Then WJR fades back in 
but still a hefty collision. Don`t see how it could be any US station, but one 
of four in NW Mexico: XEDGO Durango2, XENY Nogales, XEEB Ciudad Obregón, or 
closest XEES Chihuahua2. IRCA has no format for the latter, a.k.a. Antena 7-60, 
but the others are musical, two of them romántica. 730 Chihuahua is inbooming 
even more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BONAIRE. 800, Nov 25 at 0124, Spanish Christian sermon vs KQCV English 
evangelism, OKC nulled as much as possible but still making hefty SAH of 
156/minute or 2.6 cycles/second. Runs a bit past 0130 with address in Habana, 
0131 ID as ``800`` altho I was hoping to hear a clear ``Radio Transmundial``, 
into Luís Palau, which as I`ve previously researched is on the TWR sked at this 
time. Then there`s some CCI from another Spanish, perhaps XEROK (Glenn Hauser, 

This item from Mission Network News Dec 1 (via Artie Bigley), says TWR is still 
running only 100 kW:

``[Steve] Shantz explains, "We have a project underway right now which we’re 
about 80 percent complete on, and that is to raise our power from 100,000 watts 
to 450,000 watts and also put in a more efficient antenna system that can 
really beam and focus the energy onto the island of Cuba. So we hope that very 
shortly we’ll be able to go on the air with a brand new transmitter at 450,000 
watts and be able to really put a powerful signal into Cuba so on a daily 
basis"`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 810, Nov 26 at 0202 tune-by, ``Radio Rey, Reynosa, Tamaulipas,`` ID 
in passing in the mix as I happen to be aiming N/S. That`s XERI, 1000/100 watts 
per IRCA, not bad! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
