** CANADA. 332-MCW kHz, May 26 at 0618 UT, dash and YFM, 2500-watt NDB
at La Grand 4, Québec, atop my nearby 400-watt IC Wichita KS, and
nothing from the usual dominator, 1000-watt QT in Thunder Bay,
Ontario. LG-4 is a Hydro dam a kilomile north of Montréal,
fishing/outfitter destination.

Does that look familiar? I`ve copied my last log of it from Dec 30 at
0731 UT, just changing the date and time, as I would say exactly the
same things about it now. WG, 248 kHz, WinnipeG is also audible now,
the only other Canadian.

Coördinates for LG4 aerodrome with a gravel runway: 53°45′17″N /
073°40′31″W = N53°45.28' / W73°40.52' (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 28193.1-CW, May 26 at 1840, 17 dits and: VVV DE VE4ARM/B
AMATEUR -- and the rest of the loop uncopied, again today the beacon
at Austin, Manitoba, not only the OBOB but OSOB, by sporadic E. Also
on my other radio at 2043, JBA on the inside ceiling N/S random wire,
not on the inside E/W amplified loop. 1510 km = 938 statute miles
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 12820, May 26 at 1439, S4-S5 Chinese, CNR1 jammer against
Sound of Hope. Again the only one audible within +/- 250 kHz of 13000
and 11000. If I ever get around to surveying before 1400 there may be
more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, May 26 at 1500 UT, After two weeks of black and
silence, K17JN-D Enid is now totally off the air - no signal bar on
the STB. Recheck at 2150, now it`s back to nominal with all five 3ABN
channels (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, May 26 at 2038, no signal here, nor at 2112 via
UTwente from REE NAm frequency; probably off tho K-index is 5. Either
way, it`s a loss. 15520 off the back to ME is JBA here at first while
UTw gets S9 with hyper announcer, got to be a stupid ballgame. Tough
luck, fans of regular shows like `Españoles en la Mar` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** THAILAND. 12044.977, May 26 at 1431, VOA Korean has an LAH = low
audible heterodyne, but main signal zero-beats about here, while
match-het measuring shows 12045.005 or so. I suppose being jammed
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Answering my question, are there any beacons on
the 18, 21, 24 MHz ham bands? Yes, a few, but mostly historical:
HF Beacons IARU Region 2 (qsl.net)
https://www.qsl.net/wj5o/HF%20Bcns.htm
And I suppose GP stand for ground plane. The 10m list contains a great
deal of old info too just in case they come back? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2087 monitoring: confirmed Wed May 26 at 1035
when I happen to awaken, the 1030 on WRMI 5850, not only on the air
but modulating me.

NOT confirmed Wed May 26 at 2100:21 on WBCQ 7490v: NOT on the air, nor
is wacko Flat Earth Radio on 9330; local storm? Yes! Much like
previously, a little storm on Blitzortung right over Monticello into
NB; no recent strixe but must be off air as precaution. OR: does the
SuperStation attract storms?!?!

Confirmed simultaneous 2100 Wed May 26 on WRMI 7780, JBA carrier
direct, but S9+5 into Washington DC>MD SDR, and also some storm
crashes there. JBA S6-S7 into UTwente.

Propagation is also degraded. WWV reported at 2100:
``Solar-terrestrial indices for 26 May follow.
Solar flux 88 and estimated planetary A-index 19.
The estimated planetary K-index at 2100 UTC on 26 May was 5.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.
Space weather for the next 24 hours is predicted to be moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level are likely.``

Also confirmed Wed May 26 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 into Bonaire
SDR, no jamming audible. Next, and last airing of 2087:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, ``in observance
of my second Moderna COVID-19 shot on Mon 3 May 2021`` --- that`s a
good idea!

WOR 2088 should be ready for first airings by 0130 UT Friday May 28 on
WRMIs 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, May 26 at 2036, gospel huxter detectable at S2.
WJHR Milton FL last heard here Feb 16 during a rare winter HF sporadic
E opening, despite at least daily daytime bandscans across the
frequency. Now there is plenty of Esporadic, and I still doubt that
it`s really low power on the air every day (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 26 at 0615, again no signal for 3 x 3945 Radio
Vanuatu, tho 11725 NZ is back to good level. Ron Howard confirms RV is
still off:

``Hi Glenn, May 26 - Again no trace of a Radio Vanuatu signal on any
of their usual frequencies, when checking from 0555 to 0830 UT.
Interesting to note that on Wednesday, CNR2 (11835), does in fact cut
off after the 0600 time pips and was heard again after 0900. Per my
observations, it seems that Wednesday is the only day they have this
abbreviated schedule. When Radio Vanuatu is broadcasting again,
clearly Wednesday would be the best day to check for their third
harmonic. Ron, California`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
