detect the JBA carrier from Radio Rebelde, but strangely there are also

CUBA   Cuba 15730 kHz non-sched 1500-1520 UTC on 12 August.

Came across a Spanish MM/FF dialog on 15730 kHz at 1501 UT that does not
show at this time in any current schedule. Doing a TDOA analysis with the
KiwiSDR network clearly shows it is originating in Cuba. The transmission
dropped at 1511 UT but came back at 1518 UT, then dropped again at 1523 UT

Listening to the dialog, it is/was was definitely RHC.

EGYPT   "Leider ist Radio Kairo nur zu selten auf 9570 kHz zu empfangen,
aber fuer Hoerer mit einem Internetzugang gab es die Gelegenheit, in den
letzten Wochen das deutschsprachige Programm um 19 UT auch im Internet
livestream zu hoeren. Doch leider nahmen im Juli Tonausfaelle zu, so dass
kaum mehr eine Sendung von Radio Kairo gehoert werden konnte.

Seit dem 5. Juli gibt es Freitags auch kein Quizprogramm mehr.
Hoererklubmitglied Ralf Urbanczyk erhielt auf seine Nachfrage in Kairo
diese Antwort, die verspaetet auch sinngemaess in der Briefkastensendung
vom 28 Juli bekanntgegeben wurde: Wir senden zur Zeit das Quizprogramm am
Montag anstatt am Freitag. Wir wuenschen Ihnen und allen Zuhoerer gute
Unterhaltung und viel Erfolg. Allerdings war Radio Kairo weder am Montag
15. noch Montag 22. Juli zu hoeren. Am 29. Juli war aber tatsaechlich die
Quizsendung zu hoeren."

ROMANIA   Romanians again have a problem with the Tiganesti transmitter.

On the air of Interradio Romania, it was reported that the specialists of
the RADIOCOM transmission center will restore broadcasting on several
frequencies and in DRM format within a few weeks. At the end of July,
broadcasts in Russian disappeared, in particular, at a frequency of
11940 kHz in analog format and in a digital standard at frequencies of
7305, 9580 kHz.

"The short-wave transmitter in Tsiganesti, which broadcasts the IRR
transmissions, including those of the Russian service, is closed due to
technical problems. Due to a malfunction, the digital broadcasting of the
IRR programs (in the DRM format) is also disrupted

The frequencies of 7305 kHz (the first broadcast of the day - to Moscow)
and 9580 kHz (third broadcast of the day, also broadcasting to the capital
of the Russian Federation) do not work. {see Tiganesti fq table below,
wb.}

Radiocom, a broadcasting service provider, said that it would
unfortunately take several weeks to replace defective components. In the
meantime, listen to the IRR on the second frequency, on which we broadcast
our transmissions to your region, according to the frequency table on our
website, "the broadcast reported.

Last August, RADIOCOM had a similar problem. For several days there were
no broadcasts in DRM format. Then it was reported on the air that one of
the transmitters in Tsiganesti had broken down.

The National Radiocommunication Society of Romania SA, existing under the
commercial brand RADIOCOM, relays Interradio Romania using a network of
6 short-wave transmitters. From information on the company's official
website, it is known that three of them are located in the transmission
center in Tsiganesti, two in Galbeni and one in Saftica.

USA   {PANAMA non}  9955 kHz, Wed August 7 at 1306 UT, DX program in
Spanish via WRMI {Okeechobee-FL-US state, wb.}, and sure sounds like
Manolo de la Rosa, who retired from RHC two or three years ago, soon outro
as part 3 of a talk about the Titanic, but no name given. Would he be
mortified to be broadcast now by the gusana station?

The show is 'Antena DX', host Victor Gutierrez then listing its sked on
WRMI and WBCQ frequencies without saying which stations, and I think
omitting the very broadcast I am listening to, if they were cited in time
order.

On next at 1311 UT to the AER DX report, featuring African stations in
Congo DR and Guinea Ecuatorial, once again including R. CANDIP as if it
still exist on 5066 kHz, and RNGE Malabo as if it still exist on 6250 kHz.
He always laboriously spells out P and E-mail addresses of each station,
most of which are in English. Also DWD on 5905, 6180 kHz. Once again he is
not named in the outro, so I won't either.

USA   "U.S. Nationwide Emergency Test Today In the United States,
the next Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS)
is scheduled for today, Aug 7 2019, at 2:20 p.m. ET.

All radio and TV stations must participate. The test will not be
transmitted via Wireless Emergency Alerts (mobile phones). Moreover, the
test will not be distributed via the Internet so stations will have to get
the originating signals directly by radio from assigned sources.

These tests tend to expose audio impairments and transmission glitches,
which is why the government keeps scheduling them. Some stations 'forward'
(rebroadcast) the tests immediately, some delay it and some don't do
anything at all, though required by law. Stations must report their
readiness and test results via three FCC forms.

The equipment required to create, obtain and forward EAS alerts is complex
and requires periodic, expensive upgrades. Few manufacturers produce these
devices. Among non-profit community stations, there is a desire to open-
source these products, which would require approval of FCC and FEMA and,
apparently, issuance of cryptographic keys to device makers.

This is only a test and no action is required of the radio and TV
audience. However, the FCC has stated:

"Members of the public and interested stakeholder organizations that are
in a position to observe test results in their communities can provide
useful feedback on the nationwide test, including any problems observed or
any complications in the delivery of the EAS message during the nationwide
test by reporting their observations to the Public Safety Support Center
at

<https://www.fcc.gov/general/public-safety-support-center> .""

I set an alarum a few minutes prior to 1820 UT, but I had just started
lunch. I do grab the PL-880 for some quick chex, and indeed the EAS tones
start at 1820 UT on KOSU 91.7, then switching to AM, also on KGWA 960,
VVKigriega 930, KTOK 1000; and KOKP 1020 kHz only the last one has noisy
background, but announcement is still readable. And it's all over by
1822 UT. How can we do any significant evaluation in such a short time,
especially while lunching? O, yeah, record the entire AM/FM/TV/cable
spectrum and sort it out later. Not me; did anyone, unofficially?.
