WRMI times for some programs are unreliable due to schedules not matching actual monitoring. WRMI info is a combination of monitoring and not fully updated online skeds. Viva Miami can be in English or sometimes Spanish. Viva Miami sometimes runs for weeks before a new episode. WRMI 9955 only programming can also be heard via phone: +1-641-741-1762. Many broadcasts on WRMI 9955 are jammed by Cuba. Please direct complaints to Arnie Coro. Nevertheless, we include his program and try to keep up with changes. At least one RHCuba frequency is often missing or in wrong language. Leapfrog mixing products confirmed by monitoring are included here, and nowhere else. Havana frequency usage is extremely variable and unreliable. Sometimes RHC is heard on spynumber frequencies or vice versa. GLENN HAUSER PROGRAM LINKS WORLD OF RADIO: Latest schedules, including non-shortwave airings: Internet on demand, see Our Current Audio page for availability: WORLD OF RADIO podcasts now available from five sources: RHEIN-MAIN RADIO CLUB FEEDBURNER iTunes Google Podcasts ================================================================== Older notes archive, including outdated info, not to be republished: Alan Roe confirms day changes for program from Belarus` via Germany; and updated Slovakia via Germany and WRMI. Also Cuba Mailbag times have been monitored and added. All India Radio has been off the air since March 23, 2020 due to CV. From January 2021 some languages were to resume, but not immediately and not including English. We have finally removed Faithfully Yours from listings. Sometime in January 2021, DXers Unlimited disappeared from RHC, as Arnie Coro was ``ill and recuperating at home``. It is not known whether he can come back. We had word that other Cuban hams were working on reviving the English DX program. But nothing has shown up yet. We have finally removed DXUL listings. Turkey`s Letterbox has not been heard since August? 2020. Transmissions continue sporadic. As of A-21, still no show; removed. Unique Radio, NSW Australia, resumed SW 3210-USB only as of May 28, 2021 weekends with IRR and three airings of WOR. As of late June dropped SW to webcast music only, so listings removed. Updated for the B-20 SW season from Oct 25, notably Romania and Turkey all one UT hour later and different frequencies. Standard time season in North America from November 1 caused further changes, mostly one UT hour later, notably WRMI 9955. In mid-October the 9395 transmitter broke down; back on by November 10. From November 11 past 13, 5950 off the air. From January 2019, Turkey`s Letterbox moved from Fridays to Saturdays + 0415 UT Sunday, and earlier in each hour. Announced as fortnightly, had been appearing weekly. All India Radio times on Mondays have been adjusted according to Alan Roe`s monitoring and cuesheet chex in July 2018. I am tempted to label AIR listings as: ``nominally fortnightly, but unpredictable, as are the exact timings``. Instead of trying to keep up with them. Update from Alan August 7, 2018: ``INDIA. Faithfully Yours was not scheduled in the Daily Cuesheet, and didn't air as expected on August 6th. Next likely airing will therefore probably be on 13 August (but will need confirming next week). Alan Roe, Teddington, UK`` Romania times have been adjusted according to a report from Rumen Pankov, Bulgaria. As of August 2018 one transmitter may be off the air. WRMI continues to juggle programming, Systems and frequencies. Some WOR times have been eliminated; others added without notice. WBCQ 9330 at 2330 had been carrying WORLD OF RADIO unpredictably, sometimes confirmed on Tue or Wed or Thu or Fri. Sometimes mixed with Brother Scare audio not suspended! e.g. September 7, 2018. All these [maybe] times have now been deleted here, altho WOR at 2330 remained on the WBCQ sked for many months! By Sept 2019, 9330 completely deleted pending World`s Last Chance. Alan Roe tracks Voice of Turkey`s Letterbox. It has been appearing every Friday + UT Saturday but announced as 2-weekly. It seems they will not adhere to a rational schedule. Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS/NEXUS/IBA/IPAR/IRN explains as of April 28, 2017 about the 1 kW Challenger Radio at Villa Estense, Italy: Glenn's program (WOR) is played regularly on a random basis on AM/MW 846 kHz (now replacing the old frequency: 1368 kHz) from 1900 to 0100 CET [17-23 UT] and from 0600 to 0800 CET [04-06 UT], [any day?] as well as on "IRN" (Internet Radio NEXUS), our 24/7 internet stream at also accessible via players at: Hamburger Lokalradio, Germany, 6190, 7265 & 9485 are circa 1000 watts in USB plus carrier. 7265 suffered huge interference B-17 from China in Hindi, and another Chinese station. But HLR wishes to preserve 7265 as a legacy German frequency, no matter what. However, the 1500- 1600 UT broadcasts in B-17 replaced 7265 with 6190, which had co-channel interference from two other Chinese stations. Summer timings at 1400- 1500 UT, still on 6190 may have less interference, but less daytime propagation. HLR was off the air Sept 22-23 and 29-30, Oct 6-7, 2018, after which returned with some frequency changes. Off the air from November 2019 following death of chief operator Michael Kittner.
