567 12.1. 1530 Radio Pakistan Khuzdar
576 12.1. 2300 Yunnan PBS, Satellite Channel, Kunming YN. Thanks to Jim Solatie and Qiao Xiaoli for clearing the confusion: I thought I heard an ID for Guiyang PBS, but it turned out to be an introduction of a program produced by Guiyang PBS and part of a national CNR program before the top of the hour. FM 105.8 announced in addition to 576 AM at 2300.
576 13.1. 0249 O'zbekiston Radiosi, Toshkent, with 2nd national network that identifies as "Yoshlar Radiokanal"
792 11.1. 0056

+ Urumqi News Channel, Urumqi XJ

792 12.1. 1535 Radio Nepal, Kathmandu
792 13.1. 1400 Guangxi PBS, Nanning GX is the listed location, but there were two transmitters with the same regional program, with a lengthy echo, so there must be more than one transmitter here
819 9.1. 1250 Shanxi PBS, Taiyuan SX
891 9.1. 2315 Ningxia News Channel, Yinchuan NX
900 9.1. 2340 CNR2 Golmud QH. In addition to the regular Chinese ID, there was an English-language ID at 0000: "China Business Radio"
900 11.1. 1502 + Changchun PBS, Changchun JL. Many thanks to Robert Liu for solving this!
927 12.1. 2300 + Yunnan PBS, Kunming YN, perhaps "Xinwen Guangbo" (news channel). A rather clear ID, but I didn't believe my ears, because this is not listed anywhere. Consulting Jim Solatie helped - he had heard "Yunnan Traffic and Travel Radio" on this fq when visiting Kunming last year.
954 11.1. 1550 DZEM Quezon City
999 13.1. 0200 Xinjiang PBS, UNID QTH, XJ

1107 11.1. 1359,1458 JOMR Hokuriku Hoso (MRO), Kanazawa/Nanao/Wajima. Nice IDs at times mentioned, even listing tx sites, but network programming for the rest of the hour.
1152 9.1. 2322 Bayannur PBS, Linhe NM. Finally I got a local ID from this one, and not just provincial Nei Menggu programming.
1152 12.1. 1502 Ras al Khaimah BS, Ras al Khaimah
1152 12.1. 1656 PBC Rawalpindi, no local programming, only "Radio Pakistan News and Current Affairs Channel"

1233 10.1. -1358* DYVS Bacolod
1233 13.1. 1615 Hunan PBS, Yueyang HN. This should be News channel, but ID simply as "Hunan RGD"

1494 11.1. 1425 JOYR RSK Sanyo Hoso, Okayama
1494 11.1. 1450 Nei Monggol PBS, UNID QTH, NM. According to PAL, this could be Hulun Buir PBS, Hailar NM, relaying the provincial program. Thanks to Qiao Xiaoli for confirming the ID.
1494 13.1. 0200 Xinjiang PBS, Korla XJ. The station was audible as late as 0230 UTC, but still no trace of local Korla programming (do they have any?), IDed only as "Xinjiang RGD"
1521 9.1. 2338 UNID in Mongolian, most likely Ulanqab PBS, Jining NM. Unstable transmitter. Does anyone understand Mongolian? I would have some very interesting recordings. If you can help, please email to mika @ makelainen.com
1521 13.1. *0100- CRI Urumqi XJ, signed on with Russian programming, overcoming a much more interesting Chinese station
1584 12.1. 1544 AIR Keonjhar with AIR Cuttack programming. Thanks to Alokesh Gupta and Jose Jacob for checking my recording!

KXLY Spokane WA
1010 11.1. 1315 + KZNY Milwaukie OR, "Recuerdo". I first thought this would be KIQI which uses the same slogan, among others. Solving this was a long story. KZNY is supposed to be daytime only, but obviously isn't.

KZNS Salt Lake City UT. More regular catches here included WNAM, CFMB and KBNO.

KAPL Phoenix OR. Something weird has happened with this station. Earlier it used to be relatively rare, now the signal was constantly one of the strongest of the West Coast stations. Perhaps with daytime power through the night? More Eastern conditions brought KGLO, WOOD and WRDZ here. KAPL ID

1700 8.1. 2329 WEUP Huntsville AL, "The People's Station"
1700 9.1. 0637 KBGG Des Moines IA. A regular catch, but mentioned here, because heard with Serbian/Croatian programming and ID as "Most Radio - vashe radio" (meaning "Radio Bridge - your radio"). Alternating with KVNS (station identification).
3815 USB 11.1. 2200 + KNR Tasiilaq. Perhaps the first time that this shortwave station has been heard outside Greenland. However, there used to be a MW transmitter in the same location, heard also in northern Europe.

1140 11.1. 0803 XEMR Monterrey NL, "MR Deportes"
1150 11.1. 0829 tent. XEBF San Pedro CO. However, I only have a regional ID "Radiorama de La Laguna" (dug by Henrik) which would refer to all Radiorama stations in the Torreón area.

1350 11.1. 0741 XETB Torreón CO, "Radio Laguna". Has anyone ever received a QSL from this one?
1450 14.1. 0832 XECU Los Mochis SN. The ID was really tricky. Many thanks to Mike Westfall and John Callarman who recognized the ID as XEORF 950, which occasionally seems to be relayed by XECU.
