which showed NO activity at all! Wake up, hams.

Around 0100 UT Feb 11, long after the TVDX had outfaded here, that map had lines all over it, from central to western NAm, with the Es patch around NW Kansas, too close to here, and then numerous other TVDXers were reporting activity in that area (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** POLAND [non]. 11675, PRES via AUSTRIA, Thu Feb 11 at 1335 with documentary on whisperers, supposedly performing natural healing, Slavonic folk magic. Unnamed program ended a 1348 until next week. ID by Swavek Chefs as the ES of PR, on to next unnamed show about eating offal, with harp music, culminating in a recipe for tripe soup. Glad I wasn`t eating breakfast yet.

May have been the Letter from Poland lady, which had been scheduled in this time segment, but what became of Multimedia before it, or rather Multitouch --- has that been completely canceled, or moved? The program grid still hasn`t been revised since 10.5 months ago: http://www.thenews.pl/static/Schedule.aspx

1356 sign-off announcement, with P-mail address, e-mail english.section @ polishradio.pl and fill with rock music postlude.

Went looking for text or audio archives, and found nothing on these subjects yet, not even under today`s date, nor the last few days in case the wrong hour was being played back; but under Multimedia link, a 16-minute file of the Feb 2 program, none since:

``February 1st marked 85 years of Polish Radio broadcasting activity.

Presented by Slawek Szefs --- Also, the latest comments on PRES reception and... should my name be spelled Swavek Chefs?`` Audio link: http://www.thenews.pl/radio/multimedia/artykul124866.html

Which I then listened to. Erik Køie on the outskirts of Copenhagen complained of QRM from R. Netherlands, also on 11675 until 1330. That`s eastward from UAE in Dutch scheduled until 1327, but certainly likely to get into Europe off the back, especially in the skip zone from Austria!

At end he does refer to a DXLD extract from 10-04, courtesy of Erik Køie, discussing spelling of Polish names, alfabet, searching for Multi-Touch. Hopes hybrid show will only be a transitory feature, and to regain funding to separate them; still have to look for audio under Multimedia on website.

Fortunately our respelling-his-name comment raised a smile on his face, and he will be glad for people to spell it that way when writing; just so they write (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. BBCWS, Connexion Haïti still on the air in Kreyòl, Feb 11 at 1242 check via Guiana French 11860. Next check at 1255 via WHRI 9410, operatic fill music, so this time CH must have started close to on-time at 1232:30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, WRMI Radio Miami International and DentroCuban Jamming Command observations Feb 11: at 0615, ``pulse of the planet`` mentioned, not sure if a program segment but presumably from Israel Radio via WRN as scheduled this semihour, 0620 to electro-acoustic vamp music; it seems the last third of IR via WRN is always music fill. The solar flux is up, allowing the WRMI signal, still on the SSE antenna only, to be competitive with the DCJC pulses.

Previously DCJC was up and running a fifth of an hour before 1300 during UN Radio in French to Haiti, but this day monitoring from that minute, 1248, found it in the clear, first about Haiti, Radio des Nations-Unies ID and into magazine segment about something else. It was not until *1258:40 that DCJC cut on and overwhelmed WRMI in time to block Radio Libertad at 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13570, WINB with preacher in Spanish, Feb 11 at 1555, with awful self-imposed buzz, very wobbly carrier even more obvious with BFO on, and interfering with CODAR.

Program schedule at http://www.winb.com/schedule.htm now shows a correct 5-hour difference between UT and ET, unlike last time we checked. Per it, does not start until 1600 with Alámo, so what`s this Spanish? All the programs flagged as Spanish, at other times, are from Family Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALASKA. 6890, KNLS fair and clear signal, better than usual, Feb 13 at 1417, playing ``Puttin` on the Ritz``, into talk feature about Irving Berlin which soon turned into a tract from this stealth evangelizer, ending with ``If heaven had a refrigerator, your picture would be on its door``, which I find to be a non-sequitur, not buying into their wacky god-view. This was barely but safely on the edge of ChiCom OTH radar from 6890 to 7000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 4460, CNR1 with apparent live New Year`s Eve concert by singer, Feb 13 at 1410; also heard same on 6040 and several other 49m channels, some of them jammers.

Altho the live concert may have been over by 1540, the CRI Sackville relay on 13675 had some nice traditional music, concluding with an evocation of a few notes from The Internationale at 1546, IDs in English and Chinese.

Do the Chinese also make a big deal of the exact arrival of midnight = 1600 UT? I`m sure when the lunar calendar was invented there was no such precise standard timekeeping (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. OTH radar pulses, presumed from here, Feb 13 at 1422 on 6890-7000, 1424 on 6535-6585 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake, Feb 13 at 1435, good on 8400, nothing on 9000, 10210 or 11300 areas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 5910, HJDH, Feb 13 at 0713 VG signal but with sermon instead of peppy music, bummer, and still with lite ute QRM aside. So checked the other HJDH, 6010 at 0714 and there was a rumbling het between it and XEOI, never zero-beat, one of which had a dramatic dialog, the other music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9955, WRMI, completely blocked by heavy jamming around 1430 Feb 14 when WORLD OF RADIO is scheduled on Saturdays; also at 1608 when DX Partyline is allegedly on. Tnx a lot, Arnie! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS. OTH radar pulsing, presumed from here, Feb 13 at 1459 covering 16870-16900 --- they should all be so far out of broadcast bands, unlike at 1519 on 15537-15560, all frequency ranges approximate, abutting RDPI 15560. Another one safely out of band but clashing with CODAR, tsk2, 13430-13460 at 1535 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR [and non]. 3810-LSB, another check 24 hours later for HD2IOA, Feb 13 at 0659; yes, audible underneath spoiler hams N3TOA and K5ENU, no spring chickens but juvenilely making up funny fonetix, such as ``elephants near utopia``, or ``even nuns urinate``. Hee, hee.

I was straining to hear HD2IOA underneath them during the 0659:40-0659:50 UT segment when I thought a full ID was inserted Feb 12, and did succeed in making out the word ``Armada``, so that is definitely when it departs from time-announcements only. Furthermore, one of the hams thanked the Ecuadorian for making a top-of-hour ID, as reminder that hams should ID too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA [non]. 6260, Feb 13 at 1425 weak and fluttery signal with S Asian music and talk; it`s CVC`s Hindi service which still exists on SW via UZBEKISTAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9680, RRI domestic relay Feb 13 at 1603, gamelan concert with singing, still at 1621 drama with singing. Normally this goes off around 1500v.

9526- VOI was also on at 1605 causing het to 9525, no doubt CRI Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, weaker. 9526- sounded like something reverent tho not strictly Qur`an, 1607 over to YL talking non-English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 4800, Feb 13 at 0708 fair with YL singer vs CODAR, then ID as ``La nueva estrella, XERTA ---`` but fade during the rest and not sure they were still calling themselves Transcontinental; music bed had a bit of ``Blessed Assurance``, so still religious, on to continuous talk, rough copy but seemed sermonic.

Also quick check of 6104.8 found XEQM reaudible at 0722 with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also COLOMBIA [and non]

** PORTUGAL [and non]. 13 meters again lively on Feb 13, after solar flux up another couple points to 96 on Feb 12; and the K-index at 1500 Feb 13 of 1. 21655 RDPI music with VG S9+10 signal plus classical music from Spain 21610 and 21570 at roughly equivalent levels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [non]. 15670, Miraya FM via IRRS SLOVAKIA, Feb 13 at 1510, YL ending English news with the ``main points again`` --- we know what her model is, don`t we? She pronounces it Miráya, so that`s still OK, but the canned ID by OM afterwards pronounces it Míra, so take your pick. And into an Arabic dialect.

I have been trying to get Radio Mada and Miraya FM off the same frequency where they have been colliding Sat & Sun ever since Miraya moved to 15670 from 9825 a few weeks ago; so I was listening carefully to see if Mada would show up on my suggested alternative, 15680.

At least the Pridnestrovye carrier for Mada was not on so early this time, no SAH or anything yet on 15670 at 1517. By 1524 the open carrier had come on, atop Miraya producing 3 Hz SAH, but no intermittent Russian tones until 1525. Carrier cut off and on a few times; 1527 tones atop Miraya. At 1530 sharp, Mada starts modulating in presumed Malagasy, making both stations unintelligible.

During the next semihour, 15680, 15660 as well as their adjacent frequencies remained tantalizingly empty as the Two M`s fought it out on 15670, until Mada was finished at 1600*.

I believe Mada intends to move, but obviously this seemingly simple shift could not be accomplished yet, probably having to go thru several layers of bureaucracy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. Radio Martí via Greenville with dead air for at least four minutes, 1520-1524 UT Feb 13 on all three frequencies, 15330, 13820 and 11930; a pity since all were way atop DentroCuban Jamming Command at the moment, but at least allowed us to make out the beeping tones underneath 15330, 11930, but not 13820. 1524 all resumed with talk about a béisbol lanzador, i.e. pitcher (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Altho WINB had infilled the 14-16 UT gap the day before, it was completely missing from 13570 and 9265, Sat Feb 13 at 1452 check, 1535, and even at 1611 when 13570 is normally on. Transmitter trouble? CODAR thanks them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LI STENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15420-CUSB, WBCQ carrier on over BBC at 1531 Feb 13; tho missing from own schedules, this frequency carries Brother Scare on Sabbath mornings only, but from when, exactly? I left a receiver on frequency and waited, and waited. WBCQ is far enough off to produce a rippling SAH with BBCWS in English via Cyprus, but no loss since there is no significant programming, only Sportsworld.

Finally at 1614 a bit of rock music starts playing from Maine, 1615 cut to BS, 1616 cut back to an ID loop by Allan Weiner which sounded like just ``BCQ, Monticello, Maine, USA`` repeating several times, then back to BS again, which I now found to be 7 seconds ahead of WWRB 9385 (and WBCQ 9330 not on).

Does this mean WWRB has him on seven-second delay in order to mute him in case he says something untrue? Hardly! And with electricity so expensive in remote Monticello, it`s difficult to fathom why BCQ would run half a sesquihour with no modulation, unless BS is paying for it anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. I make regular chex of 4050 in case KWMO Washington MO make it thru, but usually not. Feb 13 at 0705 there was just barely audible music presumed from this 1350 station, current champ in the third-harmonic radiation category (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 11550, at 2255 Feb 13, over-dramatized portrayal of a family reunion, veddy British with lots of assenting interjexions, for-he`s-a-jolly-good-fellow, so what English service is this?

None at all. It is R. Australia`s Indonesian service promoting a peculiar brand of English learning, as eventually switched to Indonesian explanation of what had just been heard; apparently less with-it than Kangguru.

2259 cut to Waltzing Matilda and off --- or so I thot tho uplooked later in Aoki, and RA`s Indo website, this transmission via Taiwan is supposedly 2200-2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHILE. The HCJB Portuguese relay spurs from 11920 CVC Calera de Tango, vary considerably; have been 20 kHz away, but Feb 13 at 2303 as closely as I could measure their mushy centers, they were plus and minus 15.9 kHz, i.e. 11904.1 and 11935.9. When will they get around to eliminating these? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake, Feb 13 at 2315, poor with flutter on 7495. Also JBA on 8400. No known target at this hour, tho Chinese from RFA is on 7495 until 2200 via Tinian, and VOA Chinese from 0000 via Thailand. Did Sound of Hope insert itself into the gap?

Normally CNR1 would be used to jam the biggies, so the oppressed Chinese people cannot hear what America is trying to say to them; meanwhile the USA is bombarded with multiple unjammed CRI relays in English via Canada, Cuba, Spain, Albania (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Transmission of RHC`s 2030-2130 English broadcast is still irregular and problematic. Sat Feb 13 at 2114 check, nothing but Spanish on 11730, 11760, 11770, 11800, lo-fi interview with a revolutionary veteran? Dog barking in background, no DXers Unlimited.

17705, Feb 13 at 2057 upwrapping RNV relay with IS iterations and off. But back on with weaker signal at 2235, poor in French with RHC mid-ID during Journal Parlé about Afghanistan.

This semihour is on the schedule as Guarani, but French has been substituting, since as we all know, there are oodles of people who understand both. Does RHC really have any living Guarani-workers on its meagre payroll?

Calling a radio newscast a ``spoken newspaper`` seems rather archaic, but also occurs in Castilian as ``diario hablado``. Are they admitting they are just reading directly from a newspaper? Radio/TV require material to be rewritten in a different more conversational style; broadcast journalism 101 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. As I was checking Lavwadlamerik on 7590, also noted big signal on 7580 from R. Cairo`s western NAm service in English, adequately modulated during Arab music, but 2315 worn-out recording of Cairo news theme, and OM with undermodulated news I soon gave up trying to copy; the propagational fading was louder than the audio. Back to OK modulated music by 2329, but most of next semihour was a YL reading a script about some cultural topic, too low to understand. A pity, since someone no doubt put a lot of effort into writing and reading it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 7520, R. Farda with usual mostly-pop music format, some western, with Persian announcements, good but fluttery Feb 13 until 2330* cut modulation abruptly and carrier a semiminute later. It`s 2100-2330 via SRI LANKA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185, NWS relay on CB calling channel, big signal heard at two different locations in Enid a few miles and a sesquihour apart, Feb 13 at 2110 and 2236 UT. Usual lo-fi audio but hardly any worse than the original on 162.475 MHz. Frequent casual IDs are ``Enid Weather Radio``.

The site of WXL48 is really on a tower SW of Enid near Drummond. This means that if a tornado is approaching from the SW, which is most likely, the radio can get blown off the air first when we need it most. Never mind, NWS radio isn`t that good with real-time warnings; tune to OKC TV stations if you can.

I don`t often monitor CB, so don`t know if this relay is constant or frequent. I suppose it`s convenient for CBers who don`t have a weatheradio, but surely another less busy channel would have been preferable. This was a nice day with no urgent weather info, before another coldwave hits.

Aside from the QRM problem, this might skip out, now that the F2 MUF is uppicking. Strength meter varied slightly with modulation, so not full carrier, but some SSB to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. After the three Lavwadlamerik frequencies in the 22 UT hour, 15390, 13725 and 11925 closed at 2300, I went to 7590 and waited for it to upcome. Finally did at 2302, at first with hum and undermodulated, then brought up to normal level at 2303. 7590 remains a secret frequency missing from the VOA Creole schedule, filling in the gap at 2300-0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 11560, Olympic theme music, fluttery at 2258 Feb 13, 2300 VOA ID and news in English, also weaker // 11840. These are both Tinang, PHILIPPINES, the latter just starting at that hour, 21 and 349 degrees respectively, the former USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 15400, Feb 14 at 1429 tune-in, just in time to catch sign-off in English by HCJB Global Voice, Australia, saying they would resume at 2200 UT on 15525. Good S9+5 signal, carrier still on at 1432. It was actually in Chinese up to sign-off.

Then checked 15340 at 1433 and there was S Asian singing over big het from Morocco 15341. Sat & Sun 1430-1445 language on schedule is Chhattisghari.
