** BRAZIL. 9665.24V, May 29 at 2309, RVM is unsteady and slipped above
9665 after quite a spell on the minus side, music and then Brazuguese
preaching, S6-S2 on the JRC.

9665.098V, May 30 at 0604, Brazuguese preaching, now measured on the
Icom (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 248-MCW kHz, May 30 at 0623 UT, ND beacon WG with
notably strong signal, far more than any other Canadian, and than my
`local` Okies 255 SW and 350 RG which are JBA vs high storm noise
level; and 341 EI Enid remains silent for weeks. WG is 1000 watts from
WinnipeG; and never heard are 5 other listed Canadians on 248, two of
which are to be decommissioned in August per dxinfocentre.com (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey in the 12/13 MHz area, May 30 at 1421:
12500 Chinese at S5-S7; 12820 JBA carrier; 12880 Chinese S5-S7; 13130
Chinese S4-S5; 13530 JBA carrier vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7335, 7345, 7355, 7365, 7405, May 30 at 0611, noise
jammers of various strengths all against nothing since R. Martí closes
two+ hours earlier! Or in case of 7405 never at all this season. 7335
jam is heaviest; 7365 lightest. Of note that 7345 is the RM DRM
channel which quits at 0200, and when it`s on I never detect jamming
which is so similar to DRM noise itself.

All this excessive jamming, just more evidence of Commie paranoia, and
who gives a damn about polluting our SW bands totally unnecessarily?
7345 also has buried a JBA AM carrier, which during this hour only
would be BBCWS English via Ascension. Something`s always wrong at the
DentroCuban Jamming Command. Meanwhile there is no jamming on 7435
which is also an RM frequency earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13764, May 30 at 1426, spurblob out of RHC 13700-AM, telltale
F# tone but no program audio; all approx., also traces around 13828,
13893, 13636 at ~64 kHz intervals. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, May 30 at 0610, VON is on today with chants and
presumed Hausa, S9+10/20. This thing could successfully provide a N
American service if there were English on air before 0600, but then I
would complain that it`s intruding into our hamband; while targeting
only Africa Region 1 is legit. Of course they could equally serve NAm
on an open frequency above 7300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, May 29 at 1930, 2125 and May 30 at 0115 UT chex,
and *still* at 1814 May 30, open carrier/dead air from KLGB-LP, one of
my closest transmitters, so maybe less of a QRM problem. Sibling
KVBN-LP, co-located on same tower by an ex-church, continues nominal.
Both are 100 watts ERP H&V, in WTFDA database as ``religious
teaching`` but both are really mostly gospel rock now. Well, it is a
``holiday weekend`` so maybe will stay off Monday too (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11730, May 29 at 2313, `Club Cultura` from RRI in Spanish,
about museum restorations, S8-S5. No // found on same band; uplooked
later in EiBi: 11730 & 9760 Galbeni to CAm; 11650 & 13750 Tsiganeshti
to SAm listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR

** U S A. 28281-CW, May 29 at 2322, W8EH beacon JBA, 8 watts to
vertical with ground plane from Middletown OH, as recently logged but
now the only 10m beacon audible; yet there are a few phone USB QSOs
higher up like 28395, 28400, 28430. I had just found only one such on
the 18 MHz band, 18140, but lots of skip with hets on AM CB 27 MHz
frequencies. Today`s sporadic E MUFs mostly well below the FM band,
but a few spixe not well positioned for DX to here (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 28286.5-CW, May 30 at 1503, WB0BIN the only beacon JB
audible, alternating fast and slow WPM, 7 watts from Sabin, Minnesota.
As heard several times before. I keep getting only a few of the same
ones by sporadic E vs hundreds listed on 10m at
https://www.qsl.net/wj5o/bcn.htm
mostly as C for allegedly continuous rather than Intermittent, and
also # for confirmed active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2088 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday May 30 from 0321.5 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Gateway 160 Amateur
Radio Newsletter, good via near-local KB0FX KiwiSDR, but with heavy
storm noise despite none closer than western KS & OK, and along the
NC/SC/GA coasts. Next:

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, May 29 at 0155, S9+20/10 of dead air from WRNO. Lately
has been inputting a stronger signal than before, modulated or not
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun May 30 at 0100, `Encore` from R. Tumbril,
SCOTLAND, via WRMI. VG via KB0FX MO remote for convenience since am at
computer, but would also be VG direct. Also // 7780 which was back on
air UT Sat after missing UT Fri for WOR during same hour. Much more
diverse music this week than last week`s major composers. Playlist
labeled 29/5: Poulenc, Fauré, Gavin Bryars, Hindemith, Francesco
Mancini, Spiro, a polka-mazurka, Schubert. Synchro fake stereo mode
gives it ``width`` with the notes cycling left and right, and now the
SDR clix in this mode are less frequent and less obtrusive (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9940, Sun May 30 at 1712, WTWW-2 is on this new frequency
ex-9930 but hardly ever used; gospel music, then YL with ``Atlas[?]
Weather on WTWW`` for Nashville, also some other cities including
Escanaba, Michigan, why? Random choice? This is S9-S7 and noisy, much
weaker than the other WTWW-1 now on 9475 which is also seldom
activated but more likely on Sunday holydays, which is SFAW not //
9940. Then Ted plugs ``USA Bible Academy`` on ``this website`` to
avoid in-person COVID instruxion. 1714 a canned ID on 9940 for
``5085`` !! They still don`t have their act together. Both 9`s most
likely to be active only weekends.

First time I`ve caught 9940, but A-21 HFCC registered available 24/7,
100 kW at 180 degrees while 9475 is 100 kW at 55 degrees, explaining
why 9940 is so relatively weak here off the side close to 270 degrees
from Lebanon. TWR Eswatini and Furusato no Kaze also 9940 at times.

I was bandscanning 17 down thru 9 MHz as during the stupid carace Indy
500, round and round, getting nowhere, signifying nothing --- but
maybe some driver or spectators will be killed! --- would be a time if
ever for WHRI to be turned back on as a former annual religious
festival, but no sign of it on any band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [and non]. 9645, Sun May 30 at 0607, VR liturgy Sunday-only
in Romanian, harmonious responses, S6-S7; accompanied by:

9620, May 30 at 0607, Qu`ran at S9-S6, i.e. Algeria via FRANCE.

9420, May 30 at 0608, third ecumenical choice should be Greek Orthodox
service from ERA but JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9502.0-USB, May 29 at 2307, weak 2-way in Spanish
INTRUDER; cambio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12000, May 30 at 0559, JBA carrier at first assumed
again 2 x 6000 RHC; but not //, talk here, music there just before
6000 cuts off. 12000 talk seems Spanish on USB, so maybe another 2-way
intruder demodulated by the Cuba carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
