** CURACAO [and non]. 18133-USB, March 3 at 1908, PJ2/N1ZZ with rapid
pro-forma contacts as he says he`s trying to make as many as possible
during his stay. Mostly weak US & Canadian, but now one with stronger
XE1C, Jean-Paul en Guadalajara. Still going at 1941 check tho he says
the band is dropping out. Here, no other phone activity noted except
on this frequency. I hope he is OK, since he pronounces / as
``stroke``. I prefer ``slant``, not ``slash`` either as too violent.
Is he from New England? Not any more. QRZ.com: ``My direct mailing
address is: Daniel Gravereaux, N1ZZ, 1221 Seminole Drive, Indian
Harbour Beach, FL 32937, USA. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org 73, N1ZigZag``
As for XE1C, Jean-Paul Gütter is apparently semi-Canadian, with a huge
photogallery including lots of radios, cruise ships where he worx, and
a few of his beloved anonymous wife compared to classic cheesecake:

** POLAND. 85th anniversary of Radio Poland --- I listened to the
March 1 1900-2000 English via WRN Europe webcast. Quite interesting
about its history for most of the hour except for a middle segment.
Maybe is available on demand? 73, (Glenn Hauser, Oklahoma, WOR iog)
Dr Hansjoerg Biener replies, ``Maybe this helps ---

years of Radio Poland

Next WOR 2076 should be ready by early UT Fri March 5 for first SW

** U S A. Re: ``9330, March 3 at 0112, no signal from WBCQ WLCR; nor
on 9333. G1 storm and K index of 5 may have propped it out, but you`d
think at least a smidgin of its 500 kW would be detectable; all
gobbled up in the ionosphere; or serving International Vacuum (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)``
We had a snow with high winds yesterday in New Brunswick. Lost
commercial power for six hours at my house. Eastern Maine may have had
issues, too. (— Richard Langley, later March 3, WOR iog)
Earlier, Feb 28, Richard posted this:
``[WOR] WBCQ Power Supply? Blame Canada --- The northeastern part of
Maine gets a lot of their electricity from Canada -- New Brunswick to
be exact. Maine's electricity network north of Houlton is not
connected to the rest of the network in Maine. Yes, there are a couple
of small power stations in the region on the Maine side of the border
but a lot of power is imported. This was one of the many dependencies
of the U.S. on Canada that had to be made clear to the Trump
administration when they were attempting to "punish" Canada with
duties on alumin[i]um, etc. I hope Angela and Allan Weiner realize
that whenever they criticize Canukistan. -- Richard Langley``
Ironically, Angela herself is also Newbrunswickianne. Still/again,
March 3 at 1933 & 2010 chex, zero signal on 9330/9333 altho WBCQ-6 is
always weak at this time, in German to Europe. It`s not an electricity
issue now, as at 1936, WBCQ-1 is JBA with BS on signature
off-frequency 7490.192V. Richard Langley, too:
``9330 kHz is still off as far as I can tell (checked at 2000 UT
today, 3 March) using my own receiver and the U. Twente SDR receiver.
-- Richard Langley`` WOR iog.
``They had a wind storm with very cold temperatures for a few days.
Winds over 50 MPH and wind chills around -40 degrees F. Peter W
Hansen`` -- WOR iog.
The WBCQ-6 White Elephant ``Super-Station`` keeps breaking down for
some reason or another. Perhaps AW will mention it on next WW. Once
again there`s a hiatus in his twitting, not since Feb 20, altho almost
all of those were generic ``free speech`` promotions (Glenn Hauser,
OK, March 3, WOR)
** U S A. Hey Glenn: 1630 KKGM TX, does play UC (music) as a break
between news segments - the station is very strong in Austin.
Receiving Equipment: Drake R8B, Terminated Delta Antenna (17ft apex
and 28ft base), northeast, Mini-Flag Antenna (7ft by 15ft), southeast.
