** CANADA [and non]. 245 kHz, Jan 7 at 0735 UT, ND beacon dash and
YZE, 1000 watts at Gore Bay, Ontario, mixing on same frequency but
different pitches with stronger 400 watt FS, Sioux Falls - Rock, South
Dakota (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Jan 7 at 0721, RHC English still on here with squeal,
// 6060 stronger than 6145. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 5040
needs to get out of way for Vanuatu from 0630 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13629 & 13770 approx., Jan 7 at 1509, spurblobs from
13700-AM, 70-71 kHz displaced. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880 & 15140 & 15370, Jan 7 at 2108, all three RHC in
choking Arabic today. You never know what combo of scheduled or
non-scheduled languages will occupy the 2100 semihour. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Jan 8 at 0457, RHC English is just barely modulated
while only // 6000 is suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, Jan 8 at 0300, JBA carrier fades up enough to
recognize Station YHWH sermon by anti-Christ pirate. At S8-S9 still
tough copy. Was also a JBA carrier on 7480 where instead he was caught
a few nights ago by Ron Howard, so check both (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 6125, Jan 8 at 0445, S9+10 of dead air; by 0447 some JBM
music; 0452 headline in English from VOT, off by 0454*. Something`s
always wrong at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 2097.3-CW, Jan 7 at 0728 the single-letter beacon A is back!
ID every dekasecond. Also Jan 8 at 0220. Have included this in
bandscans despite last reported by Steve Zimmerman, WI on Aug 20. It
was so regular that I did not always log it but noted Oct 11 that it
was no longer to be heard. Last time I did log it was August 3.
Originally thought to be in Quartzsite AZ, but then denied to be
there, yet presumably somewhere in SW USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, Jan 8 at 0144, WRMI playing familiar World Music
including Cayman holiday, mbira on VG signal // weaker 5010, since
there are now a number of blank fields on the System F schedule such
as today 0130-0300 on #12 5850 and #14 5010. We don`t see World Music
by name deliberately anywhere on the sked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5935, Jan 8 at 0458, the DGS/PMS/TUN WWCR transmitter is
AWOL, no trace, while the other three are inbooming: 5890 S9+30 not
quite signed off yet; 4840 S9+30, 3215 S9+20. Furthermore, 5970 WEWN
Spanish is S9+10/20 about the same distance and nominal (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Jan 8 at 0140, No VOV in Vietnamese, as WHRI
is OFF. Back on at 0256 with WHRI own gospel-huxtering at S9+20.
Wonder if the relay contract ran out at yearend? Had not noticed or
checked for it yet this year (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9961.5-USB, Jan 7 at 1515, 2-way in Spanish, very poor
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
