WOR 1111: computer problems will delay uploading of audio until, I hope, later on UT Thursday December 27th. It has safely aired on WBCQ at 0030 and should repeat at 0600 on 7415, and a tape is safely on the way to WWCR to start Thursday 2130.

RFPI: again for the Sat/UT Sun program cycle Dec 22-23, last week`s and this week`s WORs are being run back to back, instead of RFPI Mailbag: 1109 at 1800, 0000, 0600, 1200; 1110 at 1830, 0030, 0630, 1230 on some of: 7445-USB, 15040, 21815-USB. This compensates for the non-appearance of 1109 last week until a special insertion on Sunday.

WOR on Radio LavaLamp: Hi Glenn, Just thought I'd update you on things here. Last weekend I was able to change to the current program before 1700 UT, Saturday. That means the current WOR program ran 3 out of the 4 "loops." Most likely, from now on, the previous week's WOR program will run at 05/17 UT, Saturday & the changeover to the new WOR will be made in time for the 05/17 UTC, Sunday programs. Thanks also for the blurb re: Radio LavaLamp. Keep up the excellent work. 73s (Ralph Famularo, Osaka, Dec 21)

WORLD OF RADIO on RADIO LAVALAMP, a webcast-only station from Osaka, Japan. Thanks to Ralph Famularo for adding WOR to the schedule, currently 0500 and 1700 UT both Saturday and Sunday (JST: Sat 2 pm, Sun 2 am, 2 pm, Mon 2 am). However, there will probably be a week delay after the original broadcast. Check out their other programming while visiting the Radio LavaLamp web page: http://www.rinku.zaq.ne.jp/bkaec205/index.html
RFPI: did not get WOR 1109 in time to air it Fri 1930 or UT Sat Dec 15 0130; repeated 1108 instead. So let`s hope 1109 be available by Sat 1800.

WWCR: mistakenly started to run last week`s WOR 1108 at 2130 UT Thu Dec 13 on 15685, but switched to this week`s show at 2134, incomplete since frequency change started at 2158. (We also mistakenly introduced it as 1108 in our battery-power production without the opening theme, corrected on the WRN, RFPI, and archive versions.)
WORLD OF RADIO 1109 finally available from 1707 UT December 13: STREAM - DOWNLOAD - SUMMARY available from 1804. Note: the online version, also for WRN and RFPI is slightly different and updated from the version on WBCQ and WWCR.
WOR 1109: there will be a considerable delay in posting audio and summary; a power failure just when we needed to record it forced us to operate on battery power... However, it aired at 0030 UT Thursday on WBCQ 7415, and should repeat at 0600.

Hope you may spread this message to all dxers in the world...OK?? (Dario Monferini, Italy) Paul Ormandy, NZ, adds that he has heard this before, and the frequency is relatively clear.

WWCR: later: now confirmed, WOR times cancelled already are Tue 1200 and Sat 1230 both on 15685.
WWCR: you might think that the schedules on WWCR`s website are bound to be more up-to-date than those sent out by P-mail. At least they don`t match, tho both are dated Dec. 1. We`ve gone by the website in maintaining the WOR schedule here, but the hard copy received Dec. 10, postmarked Dec. 6, shows that two of the three 15685 kHz broadcasts have been replaced: Sat 1230, and Tue 1200, the latter because the Arabic(?) block has been expanded to a sesquihour starting at 1100 M-F, with the original Esper Ajaj hour latened to start at 1130, bumping off 5 weekday shows at 1200. However, neither version is necessarily in effect, as they often anticipate changes expected at uncertain dates. But you should not expect to hear us any longer at these times. Some other interesting language changes are covered in upcoming DXLD 1-195.

Dec. 10: This week`s RFPI Frequency Schedule (subject to change without notice) shows 15040 at 1800-0600, instead of 1400- or 2000-, FWIW, so we shall touch up our versions when we get a chance.

RFPI is actually on 15039, not 15040, notes Ricky Leong, UT December 2. We have not yet made all the changes here.
A rather different picture of RFPI`s latest frequency schedule emerges from James Latham with Joe Bernard on a new Mailbag, first broadcast at the unexpected time of 0200+ UT Sat Dec 1, but not caught here until 0030 UT Sunday. 7445-USB, instead of just 0200-0800, on weekends, UT Sat and Sun, is extended until 1200. 15050-AM, instead of starting at 2000, is now to be found from 1400 to 0600. 21815-USB, instead of closing at 2400, will be on until 0100 or so, tho may fade out earlier; from 1200. Thus the WOR/COM schedule just distributed Dec 1 is already outdated (surprise), and a newer version incorporating the above info is not redistributed yet but posted at http://www.angelfire.com/ok/worldoradio/radiosked.html as well as the other versions here.
DX LISTENING DIGEST 1-187 has been posted December 1. With this issue we belatedly start keying entries having to do with the Marconi centennial **M**
RFPI: announced Nov 30, this schedule: 7445: 0200-0800 (please note this is in USB mode for the period of about a month); 15040: 2000-0600 UTC; reports wanted especially from west coast NAm, around opening and closing times. Website adds that 21815-USB now runs 1200-2400, with 2 kW, while 7445-USB is now 30 kW, and 15040 AM the usual 10 kW. Our posted schedules are being updated accordingly. However, 15040 was actually on by 1515 check Sat Dec. 1...

WWCR: Unlike previous winters, our WOR 2130 UT Thursday broadcast is to stay on 15685 this Dec-Jan-Feb, instead of lowering to 9475. Schedule versions here have been updated accordingly. This results from a chain of events started by the USAF knocking WWCR-4 (Bro. Scare) off 7460 some weeks ago. As of Nov 24, but subject to further change, WWCR-1 plans to keep the switchover time at 2200, going directly from 15685 to 3210, rather than a `shoulder` period of a couple hours on an intermediate frequency. Previously, the switch from 15685 to 9475 was made an hour earlier at 2100 for the three winter months. Now, even at 2200 in winter, 3 MHz is too low, in our opinion, especially for the Spanish segment if it is to reach Latin America. But Mundo Radial, Fridays at 2215 will also continue on 3210 instead of 9475 for the winter. Yes, 3210, not 3215, as WWCR also advises us that from Dec. 1 that minor change will be made, since REE/Costa Rica is no longer using 3210 in the evenings. Our 2130 WOR broadcast is problematic in the winter, anyway, for Europe. Wolfgang Bueschel, Germany, tells us that 15685 has already ceased to propagate that far; however 9475 usually suffered from weaker signals than adjacent Russia. As long as the high solar flux holds up, even in winter, daytime paths in North America and vicinity may support 15685, beyond its skip zone, which of course is larger than the skip zone would be on 9475. But that`s why we have multiple times, stations and media carrying World of Radio. Since the original problem was 7460, and there were no complaints that we know of concerning WWCR using 9475 from either transmitter in the 2200-2400 and 1000-1100 UT periods, and WWCR temporarily extended 9475 usage voluntarily to accomodate #4 usage until suitable 7 MHz band replacements were arranged, we would not have expected there to be any obstacles to resuming 9475`s previous usage for #1.

WBCQ: again this week, forgot to repeat WOR at new time 0600 UT Thursday November 15, but as they were signing off, we phoned to remind them. Since the transmitter had not yet been turned off, WBCQ did run WOR starting at 0604; hope would-be listeners had not turned it off by then. There was however, unexpected co-channel interference, confirmed at 1230 recheck as Idea Radio, Colombia, still IDing in English as on 7380, but actually moved to 7415! By now the signal was weakening and in the sideband of Super-Splatter WEWN 7425. Evidently Idea Radio preferred to clash with WBCQ rather than VOR (in the evening). But hey, it`s probably a pirate, so more power to it? ;)

Later to the below: unlike the 1230 broadcast, when DX Corner started 15 minutes in, on the 2200 broadcast it was around 2230! So the elements are not even in the same order. Furthermore, the English broadcast (today only, no doubt), repeats at 2300, not only on 9655, but as Joe Hanlon points out, also on 9830 for Europe, which is actually better here in NAm.
V. of Turkey seems to have done the one thing we didn`t anticipate concerning the ENAm English broadcast containing the DX Corner tribute to Gigi Lytle: summer timing, winter frequency. Just before 2200 UT Sat we heard nothing on 11845, so checked the new frequency 9655, and there was VOT interval signal; reception quite poor here, but intonation after 2200 sounds like English. When posted here, would-be listeners are getting 9 minutes advance notice of this Anomaly!
V. of Turkey`s DX Corner special tribute to Gigi Lytle was confirmed at 1245-1255 UT Sat on 17830 (and QRMed 17810), so will repeat on subsequent English broadcasts 15 minutes from beginning. Besides remarks from host Reshide Morale, also quoted were Bill Bergadano, Maryanne Kehoe, Tom Sundstrom, and the obituary in the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
WRN: Contrary to our too-hasty note at the top of the latest DXLD 1-159, our NAm time is still 1400 UT Sat; not 1500 until next week.

RFPI: has decided to keep 15040, but 1300-1000 only or so.

US, anti-Taleban broadcast observed: BBC Monitoring has observed what appears to be a US broadcast aimed at Afghanistan on 8700 kHz shortwave. It was heard on 14 October from tune-in at 1400 gmt until it closed abruptly at 1730 gmt. It was also heard on Monday 15 October from 0030-0530 gmt and again after 1230 gmt. The transmission was in the upper sideband mode with reduced carrier, a mode not normally used for broadcasting. The operational characteristics suggest that this frequency may be a programme feed, not an airborne transmission intended for reception by the public. FULL STORY in today`s AFGHREAX

REACTION TO AFGHANISTAN is a virtually daily summary of reaction in different countries compiled by BBC Monitoring. It has not much to do with shortwave broadcasting per se, and may be repetitive, but no doubt of considerable value for those following the situation.

The third issue posted here, Oct 14, is available from 1600 UT Sunday, but we do not expect to notify in Anomaly Alert each day of new editions.
WRN via C-Span: Unfortunately C-Span has decided to cease the relay of WRN1 on their satellite (Satcom C3) and cable outlets within a few months. Although few people tuned directly to the Satcom C3 satellite channel, many people were tuning into WRN via their local cable system. WRN is working with cable operators to ensure the continued relay of WRN via the new Telstar 5 transmissions (Tim Ayris, Marketing and Rebroadcasting Manager, World Radio Network, Oct. 11)

A slight error in your new 'Afghanistan' schedule page: Syria is in E at 20.05-21.05z. Looking forward to your 1100-anniversary edition!! Congratulations! 73, Erik Koie in Copenhagen, Oct 6.
Thanks, Erik. We are asking WRN again what happened. I thought Syria had two consecutive English broadcast hours...?
Glenn, There was a programme automation error this morning on a number of playout systems here which was the cause of WOR not being transmitted on WRN 1 Africa & Asia-Pacific and WRN EuroMax English to Europe. We apologise for the inconvenience, but it was beyond our control. Your transmission to WRN1 North America via Galaxy 5 Analogue & our new DVB service on Telstar 5 at 97 Degrees West http://www.wrn.org/telstar5.html was not affected.

CORRECTED DXLDs: As of Oct 5, we have fallen far behind in minute correxion of typos, etc., in previous DXLDs.

But we have now made a few correxions of more important errors in the following issues: 105, 117, 118, 119, 121, 127, 128, 129, 130, 135, 137, 139 and 140.

I've now listened for your show, and it sure is ON. In Milan I MAY recognize your voice down under other stations, incl. an Italian speaking one. In Vienna, Austria, at times your show fades up to be understandable, and In Bern, Switzerland, it is actually quite well heard.

Subject: NYC FM & TV today...9/11/2001 The first plane hit WTC about 9 am EDT [8:42 am, I believe -gh] Following info is re broadcast signals - NOT cable. All NYC TV stations 2,4,5,7,9,11,13 went off air at close to 0907 edt, except for WNYE-TV 25 Brooklyn (prpbably actually on the Empire State Bldg) and W??? channel 41 which also remained on in usual Spanish - probably also at E.S.Bldg. The Philla. stations were easier to see carrying the terror news on 3, 6, 10 etc. WCBS TV-2 came back on with full strength (maybe 25 miles away) by 0918 most likely using their ond XT at the Empire State Bldg, which they thoughtfully had kept in reserve there. NewJerseyNetwork (NJN) TV stations (23, 50, 52, 58) continued carrying children's shows. At a 13:20 (and 1600) EDT recheck the only NYC TV transmitters still only 2, 25, 41; but the NJN stations were found carrying the WABC-7 ABC coverage with a scrolling message which included the note that their transmitter was destroyed. Some FM stations were gone- those at the WTC twin towers, and others remained on the air having XTs at ESB or elsewhere. SW: 13720 kHz Gander at 1320 EDT (1720 utc) with aviation weather for Eastern Canadian & US cities with no mention of the giant no-fly zone. 17580 UN Radio via Skelton, UK with a 3-minute Kofi Anan message from NYC about the disaster. FM WNYE-91.5 [still not under the control of WNYC (93.9): I have no info on the 'vote' about that] dropped normal programs & was carrying BBC "W/S Special News" at 1432 EDT (1832 utc) and in fact still is @ 1719 EDT (2119 utc). WNYC - 93.9 is still off air. Pacifica station WBAI 99.5 in downtown NYC remained on with coverage and phone calls 'til the phones went out.... At 1430 EDT they had Mayor Rudolph Giuliani telling about his escape from wherever he was via some basements. He mentioned 600 total injured in the various hospitals (a # the networks didn't know or come close to.) I think WBAI MAY be off the air now, due to to the evacuations of lower Manhattan. [Later, 2158 UT:] It appears that the staff of WBAI left the studio, but they didn't know how to shut down the XT, which is silent but carrying the stereo indicator.

Sept. 11: We had no trouble connecting to BBC WS webcast, and to VOA News Now during the first hours, and fired up all our TVs to the major and cable networks. By 1919 UT, a scan of all our cable channels available locally included some surprising ones affected: KOCB-34, WB affiliate, stayed with normal programming for quite a while, but by the afternoon had suspended it and was relaying WB-11 New York instead, but soon back to infomercial! Fox News Channel took over all Fox networks in parallel: KOKH-25 (local affiliate) FX – a couple seconds delayed Fox Sports Fox News CNN merged with CNN Headline News, also relayed by TNT, TBS Inspiration network had live coverage with religious angle, Falwell, Cerullo HSN – home shopping replaced normal programming with affiliated Newsworld International (American accent; where from?) WGN – its own coverage C-SPAN 1 and 2, for a while one of them relayed WUSA-9 in Washington, then merged with own coverage, call-ins KOPX-62 Pax, relayed KFOR-TV and NBC QVC home shopping suspended broadcast with a slide saying tune to your TV news channel MTV relayed CBS coverage but kept its own tear-drop bug; VH1 relayed CBS also with CBS bug lower right, own bug upper right CMT relayed CBS, with own bug overlaying CBS bug ESPN-1 and ESPN-2 relaying ABC coverage HGTV suspended programming with slide, somber music CNBC had continuous coverage with financial angle, of course, not duplicating NBC. (MSNBC is not available here) TLC RELAYING BBC AMERICA!!! But pretty dry, panel discussion. Court TV had own coverage. Food Network, like HGTV, but music not parallel. EWTN: ``Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for Bombing Victims & for Peace`` billed as live, with no-motion slide; not sure if related. TBN with CBN, live? Pat Robertson reporting rumors As of 1935 UT, the following networks, stations were running normal programming, including commercials where applicable: UPN/KAUT, OETA/PBS, KSBI, PLEX, AP, USA, TWC, NIK, TNN, FOX FAMILY – but with streamer referring to FNC, DSC, SCIFI, TOON, A&E, HIS, DIS, LIFE, AMC, BET, COM, E!, TRAVEL. BET later picked up CBS coverage, as did TNN and even UPN by prime time, while ESPNs soon were back to sports in the afternoon, tho I suppose mostly talking about canceled games (Glenn Hauser, Enid)
U S A. FCC, Federal Agencies Shut Down in Wake of Terrorist Attacks
NEWINGTON, CT, Sep 11, 2001--Along with most other federal agencies, the FCC has closed its offices and sent its employees home in the wake of apparent terrorist attacks this morning in New York City, Washington, DC, and elsewhere. The FCC has issued no emergency declaration nor other special instructions to the Amateur Radio community. The ARRL has advised amateurs to stay alert to instructions from local authorities. President George W. Bush has announced that the US military is on high alert in the US and abroad.
New York City-Long Island Section Emergency Coordinator Tom Carrubba, KA2D, said there has been no request for any Amateur Radio Emergency Service response at this time. New York City's emergency management offices are located in the World Trade Center. He said he was alerting all amateurs, especially ARES and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service personnel, to get prepared and to stand by. Carrubba reported that he was not hearing any traffic from NYC hams on their TAC1 VHF frequency. "All land-line circuits are jammed," he said. "We are all on standby."
Carrubba said he's in the process of setting up a command channel on a linked repeater system that will cover from New York City and into Long Island's Suffolk County. "Please be alert, prepared and patient," Carrubba said.
In the Washington, DC, area, Virginia SEC Tom Gregory, N4NW, says Virginia ARES has been put on alert but has not yet been activated. "I've asked everyone to monitor the emergency frequencies and to keep a full tank of gas." He said the attack on Washington has resulted in a massive traffic jam as workers in DC attempt to leave the capital. He said cellular telephone communication was next-to-impossible. "Due to the terrorist activities today, we must remain ready for any eventuality," Gregory added. While no emergency nets are yet in operation, Gregory said all repeaters would be available as well as 7.243 MHz and 3.947 MHz on HF.
Virginia RACES reportedly has been activated at the state emergency operations center at Virginia State Police headquarters in Richmond. This was said to be a precautionary measure, not a statewide callup. ARES and RACES organizations are locally managed, and word of additional activations or of direct ham radio involvement in the affected areas is not known at this time. The FCC's Riley Hollingsworth today suggested that the amateur community remain calm but ready. He invited amateurs monitoring any suspicious radio activity to contact him, and he will relay relevant information to the FCC duty team. "You never know," he said. He advised monitors to tape such radio traffic, if possible.
The federal government has activated its SHARES HF emergency communications system. Should a state of war be declared, Amateur Radio would not automatically be shut down. The section of FCC rules requiring this--§214(b)(4) of Title 47 CFR Chapter II--was eliminated prior to the Gulf War. (ARRL via John Norfolk, OKCOK, 1723 UT Sept 11)

In the United Kingdom and Ireland, WRN EuroMax English is broadcast on SKYdigital channel 872. For the rest of Europe and anybody not using a SKY Digibox, WRN EuroMax English is broadcast on Astra 2B at 28.2 degrees East, Transponder 33, 12.343 GHz, Horizontal, Symbol Rate 27.500 MBaud, FEC 2/3 and on Eutelsat Hotbird 5, 13 degrees East, Transponder 94, 12.597 GHz, Vertical, Symbol Rate 27.500 Mbaud, FEC 3/4. WRN is also available on many cable sytems in the UK and across Europe. World of Radio is heard on Saturday at 0800 UT, 0900 BST, 1000 CEST. WRN is no longer on Astra 1B or Hotbird 4, please delete that. Regards, Harry Brooks, UK, August 25.
WRN1 NORTH AMERICA AND WRN2 TO START TRANSMISSION ON DIGITAL TELSTAR 5 SATELLITE
From October 1 2001, WRN1 North America and WRN2 will be available to affiliates and listeners via the Telstar 5 Ku band DVB digital satellite. WRN has taken this decision to keep pace with both the general move towards digital satellite broadcasting and the increase in ku band satellite reception and reduction in C-Band satellite reception by Americans. WRN plans to cease transmission of WRN1 and WRN2 on the Galaxy 5 C-Band analog satellite on December 31, 2001 giving 3 months of dual illumination.
We are currently appointing a US-based satellite dealer to assist WRN affiliates and listeners in purchasing inexpensive all-in-one packages (including DVB receivers, 24 inch antenna, etc) for continued reception of our North American network. These packages will cost in the region of $350, much less than C-band packages. WRN1 will still be available on C-Band analog satellite after 31 December 2001 because the service remains on the Satcom C3 C-Band analog satellite via a C-Span audio sub-carrier.
This satellite migration is a good chance to promote the North American network to potential local affiliates such as members of the National Federation of Community Broadcasters http://www.nfcb.org and through the College Media Advisors http://www.cma.org

Saturday August 11 at 1730, and still (again?) at 1830 the admittedly very interesting episode with the Top Ten Hate Radio Hosts, and commentary by Tim Hendel, appeared contrary to schedule instead of COM, WOR, Mailbag... See if this still happens 6, 12 and 18 hours beyond. [Later:] No, more or less back to normal with WOR at 0005-0035 UT Sunday...

RFPI: after a long period of dead air, WOR 1090 ran about 12 minutes late, 0142-0211 UT Saturday August 4 on 15049; so the following two repeats 6 and 12 hours thence may also be late.
Luego, viernes: dice la página de Radio Enlace, que no se dispondrán de los textos hasta septiembre:
``Nuestros colegas de Internet, que tienen que hacer todo solitos, se irán con sus merecidísimas y muy bienvenidas vacaciones de verano. Así que haciendo una variación al dicho holandés de "De ene zijn brood…" podríamos decir "El verano del uno es el invierno del otro". ¡¡¡De manera que os váis a quedar helados!!! El nivel de las noticias DX se reduce a CERO y algunos dirían que a por lo menos -30 o sea treinta grados bajo cero (los dias de ausencia de los colegas interactivos). Nuestros apreciados colegas de Internet Raúl López y Maria Vaquero se despiden hasta el 12 de septiembre, os saludan calurosamente y os piden comprensión por esta gran abstención. Para los que no puedan vivir sin Radio Enlace y sin las noticias DX de Glenn y Gabriel Iván, podrán naturalmente escucharlas a través del Real Audio en esta misma página, todas las semanas.

INTERNATIONAL LISTENER: Hi, Glenn! Regarding the link on your website to the International Listener web page by Ed Mayberry: I note that it doesn't work now; it gets an AOL display saying that the page isn't there. I recall that you said that Ed lost his computer and much else in the Houston floods, so maybe that website has been eliminated because he dropped out of AOL or something? If you don't want to delete the reference, you might want to add a note saying that it is currently inaccessible or something... 73, Will Martin, MO, July 25

Glenn, starting today July 18 WWCR will use 9475 instead of 7435 at 0900-1100. 9475 has a fair signal here in Europe so if WoR falls into this slot we could hear it.... [it does! Friday 0930]. Since WRN in London has left ASTRA 19.2 East, I have to rely on WWCR again for WoR. RFPI's schedule is less reliable (July 16th 1900 no WoR; some weeks ago I found WoR on Tuesday at 1830 instead of 1900). Thanks for many great WoR programs! Andre Schmidt, Lautert/Germany

WBCQ: At 0400 UT July 12 something else was on. At 0410 recheck station had gone off the air; at 0430 recheck 9330 had come back on with WORLD OF RADIO in progress; mid point was around 0440, so it began around 0425 (I just checked the tape and confirmed this).

TERREMOTO en Peru, Bolivia, Chile: Reports from Henrik Klemetz, Sweden: A heavy earthquake hit La Paz. Must be serious, as I cannot get any Bolivian internet links right now. Too bad that conditions seem worse than last night when I did hear R Fides about this time. 73 HK 2315 UT June 23
Glenn, I tuned in to Fides, and heard them talking about "centenares de casas destruídas en Arequipa", so I started looking elsewhere. Meanwhile, this arrived by e-mail. /HK 2350 UT
http://www.adonde.com and go to the Flash. Arequipa was nearest the epicenter offshore, and large parts of Bolivia and northern Chile were also hit. Voz Cristiana, 21550, is heard as normal with presumable Miami program feed at 0015 UT Sunday. Should be intresting to monitor Andean SW stations tonight, if possible. -- Glenn
Before checking 6155, I noticed briefly, at 2330, that R Aparecida was in fact on the air again, having closed earlier tonight at 2210 (actually, all three frequencies seemed active, so the radioescutas protest seems to have done the trick). R Santa Cruz, .2 kHz lower in frequency, was into preliminaries of San Juan celebrations, and so I thought that the quake had not hit the Eastern plains of Bolivia. On Fides, finally, I heard that Arequipa and surroundings (in Peru) seemed to have been hit harder than Bolivia. There are various Peruvian internet sources available, and RPP, to name just one, is on as usual in Real Audio. /HK 0006 UT June 24
And a note just received from Pedro F. Arrunategui in Lima: NOTA: en estos momentos todo los radioaficionados estamos en la cadena de socorro a raíz del terremoto que se ha se presentado con un grado de 6.3, se ha localizado a 82 kilómetros frente al mar de Moquegua, ha afectado al sur de Ica, Moquegua, Arequipa y Tacna. Este movimiento se ha presentado a las 15:30 horas de Perú.

WWCR: Both John Norfolk and I noticed that WOR appeared UT Mon May 28 at 0530 on 3215, instead of 0500. Presumably reversed order with Communications World, probably by mistake. A slightly revised DX PROGRAMS list has been posted May 28.
Posted 0511 UT May 28: INDONESIAN SITUATION: This could happen in days even hours. RA is saying that Wahid could try and impose martial law to try and stave off impeachment. There are two distinct possibilities. Either Indonesia will further fragment or the military will stage a coup and regain power. Both scenarios are likely to cause further instability and chaos.
The high amount of HF traffic in Indonesian is worth monitoring to give a possible indication which way it will go. Just tune to any unoccupied channel especially from 0900 and later and you will easily find numerous networks in Indonesian.
Channels worth monitoring are 10000 kHz (this seems to be a calling channel, yes on top of WWV, WWVH et al) 10030 kHz. In fact they seem to be between 10 and 11.5 MHz and on top of aeronautical networks including 11175. They can use either upper or lower SB but predominantly lower on 10 MHz. Another unofficial call channel is 7000 kHz USB and every 5 kHz up from there. These are not YB hams for they are usually on LSB and there is quite a deal of tension between the two. Also below 7 MHz there also are several networks.
RRI Jakarta on 15125 kHz is worth continuously monitoring and also what provincial stations remain. A lot have migrated to FM. I only wish I had bothered to learn bahasa Indonesian but as a friend pointed out many ops are using dialects. Don't be confused as there are many other SSB stations using Cantonese, Hakka, Thai and Khmer within the same range with the exception of 7 mhz. Indonesians seem to have that all to themselves. 73, Robin L. Harwood, VK7RH, ex Intruder Monitoring Service Co-ordinator for VK7 (Tasmania).

Edition 1080 is now running and all technical problems have now been fixed with live365.com.

Best regards, Glenn(two n's noted), Tim [Gaynor], dxers calling, May 19
Not to be left out, WBCQ is also moving us to a better time: ``9.335 WILL BE MOVING TO 9.330 AS OF FRIDAY, MAY 18, 2001. Due to requests from the west coast we are moving WORLD OF RADIO from Saturday (not on this Saturday, May 19, 2001) 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm to Thursday, 12:00 midnight to 12:30 am.`` [EDT]. That`s UT THURSDAY (not Friday as we thought at first) at 0400 on 9330-CUSB, and Allan Weiner tells us it already started May 17. The Saturday repeat has already been dropped.
RFPI: also making changes. USB stays on 21815-USB until 0200, instead of switching to 7445 at 0000. This should be better propagationally. As a result WOR/COM skeds recently distributed are outdated again, but for now we just fix up the versions on our site.
WWCR: The solution we suggested when we first noticed the problem a few weeks ago, REE Costa Rica staying on 3210 until 0600, is being implemented Saturday, May 19, with WWCR extending its use of 3215 from 0400 until 0600, authorized by the FCC experimentally to assess whether there be QRM from WWCR to a low-power Alaskan net on 3215 before that hour (in the summer the path is mostly daylight). This affects the UT Mon 0500 airing of WOR: 3215 instead of 3210.

RFPI: again this week, did not have WOR 1076 in time to start Friday at 1930; 1075 replayed instead. Nor was 1076 there by Saturday 1800, so looks like it`s a washout at RFPI this week.

WBCQ2: WOR started only about 4 minutes late after 0200 UT April 8 on 9335-CUSB. No matter how late it start, there seems to be no problem at the end, as it is the last program of the day on this transmitter.
DX LISTENING DIGEST 1-049 has been posted April 7.
WWCR: Glenn, The Friday evening 9:30 PM Central bcst. has been bumped up to 9:00 PM. This coming Sun. (April 8), the 2 PM bcst has been pre-empted for a Holiday Special. The 1 AM bcst [1:30 -gh] that was on CR#3 (5.070) has been lateraled over to the other transmitter, and is now on 3.210. Other changes pending, but not till the end of the month. Dawn Keen, WWCR Program Director, April 7.
WWCR: WOR was not on at 0230 UT Saturday on 3215; we are told it had been moved half an hour earlier! We`ll try to confirm before next week if this is a permanent change.
WRN: WOR 1075 was not availablized ondemand until sometime between 1900 and 2115 April 6. We hear from WRN that the nominal target time to have this done is now 2100 UT on Fridays, though upon occasion it may be earlier, at their discretion. Evidently as a result, RFPI did not have 1075 in time for the Friday/UT Saturday airings such as 0130 and had to replay 1074. RFPI had 1075 in time for Saturday/UT Sunday.

WOR on WWCR: March 29 the 2130 broadcast on 15685 started early at 2128, assuring our finish before frequency change announcement at 2157. Unfortunately, as monitored in OK, 15685 signal dropped drastically just as WOR started! Fortunately, as from next week, we will be on at 2030, with no hurry to finish or need to start early since the frequency change remains at 2158 UT.

WRN: It appears to me that the WRN 1 North America schedule is based on local times in the United States. Although there were some program changes last Sunday, the schedule doesn`t shift by an hour (relative to UT) until next Sunday. To confirm this, at 1755-1805 CT, I just heard the end of RTE Ireland and the beginning of Radio Budapest. This would suggest that World of Radio will still be on at the same local time (and same UT time) this coming Saturday (Kevin Kelly, publicradiofan.com)

RFPI stays at same UT all year, but frequency usage varies depending on breakdowns, etc. WRN1 changes are usually not available until the last minute. Since WOR is currently on Saturdays only, the new timings would not go into effect until March 31, while the new schedules should be availble by March 25 or 26.

RFPI: 15049 is back on the air when checked at 0100 UT Feb 18, but 7450 was not. That is explained by the nominal new RFPI Frequency Schedule: (Hours subject to change)-- 40 meters: 7.450 MHz (AM): 0200-0800; 19 meters: 15.050 MHz (AM): 2200-0400; 13 meters: 21.815 MHz (USB): 1200-0400 [sic]
WOR on WBCQ2: the nominal new time of 0300 UT Sunday on 9335: Feb 18 started at 0309 after dead air, and it was 1068 instead of 1069. For good measure 1067 (recorded Jan 31) started at 0341, after the closing for a pre-Xmas VOA Comms World which must have been on the tail of the WOR 1068 tape.
WOR on WWCR: The Thu Feb 15 2130 airing on 9475 started with last week`s 1068 by mistake; in less than two minutes we had phoned and got them to restart with correct 1069 which played to conclusion just before 2200. We then heard from one listener who had already tuned out and given up before the correct edition started. But he says the Fri 1030 airing on 7435 went back to 1068 when we were not awake to prevent it. We have confirmed that they do have 1069 on hand for the remaining airings.
DX LISTENING DIGEST 1-021 has been posted February 16. A corrected version appeared at 0454 UT Feb 17.
DX PROGRAMS revised edition has been posted February 15.
WBCQ advised us Thursday (after WOR 1069 was produced) that effective Feb 17 they have changed our repeat time again on Saturday evenings, to another hour later at 0300 UT Sunday on 9335-CUSB.
RFPI unscheduled times: Will Martin wonders why times he heard WOR and COM on RFPI at least twice in January have not appeared on our schedules, i.e UT Thursday 0500-0600? These were fill-ins for missing programs still on the official schedule, one of which was Mailbag, which was not produced for several weeks. We never know in advance when WOR or COM will fill in for something else; if we hear an early airing sometimes we can warn listeners of repeats here at Anomaly Alert. Just enjoy the bonuses if you run across them, but don`t rely on them the followintg week. (Presumably this will not be happening Feb. 15 as there was a new Mailbag last week which should have aired at 1700, repeating at 0500).

Our new time of 0200 was delayed until 0207 as the previous show presumably started late but WOR was allowed to play out until 0236, after which the frequency closed.
RFPI: power outage prevented UT Sat Feb 10 0100-0200 broadcasts, and probably also six hours earlier. Try for new COM and WOR Sat 0700-0800 on 7450, 1300-1400 on 21815-USB.

RFPI: 15049, not 7480, was on until 0600+ UT Tue Jan 16; no frequencies audible in the 1900-2100 period Jan 16. Probably caused by antenna work for 7480.
