** GERMANY. 9670, June 4 at 2230, Channel 292 puts a sufficient S6-7
signal into Maryland SDR, carrier offset +15 Hz; some ACI on LSB
presumed Brasil+, evitable by USB tuning; talk in French but ID with
English name --- why do French stations do this? Radio Waves
International, contact address, music; 2259 ID in English, and:

2300, Texas Radio SW starts with `YROT` theme, roboyl opens from
``Laguna Madre on south Texas coast``, QSL offer; also from Cap`n Ric,
if rules are followed including at least 20 minutes of details.
Another announcement at 2316, now S6-S8 there and offset +16 Hz.
What?! TRSW does not make the cut of
https://www.visitcorpuschristitx.org/trip-ideas/must-see/10-cool-facts-about-the-laguna-madre/

No offense, but I would not spend an hour listening to Stevie Ray
Vaughan if reception were perfect local FM. This has been publicized
as a test to North America; east coast maybe, but direct to here at
2325 check, it`s a JBA carrier vs high noise level of S6-S7; `YROT`
theme again at 2359 closing via MD SDR, same reception as before.

The same SRV show should be less of a strain to hear in NAm later this
weekend, as Terry Colgan reminds us: ``June 6 at 0100 UT (Sat night in
NAm) on 5960 kHz [sic: it`s really 5950 WRMI]: Stevie Ray Vaughan. As
always, TRSW offers special eQSLs for correct reports conforming to
TRSW’s eQSL policy to texasradiosw@gmail.com``

Attn editors: do not ``correct`` ``NAm`` to ``Nam`` as has been
happening to my reports: it means North America, not (Viet) Nam!

As for Channel 292, their website sked is fuzzy low-res, but if you
keep clicking on it, you can get to a sharper version which will
enlarge. The TRSW airing is labeled N, for a direxional beam on a
strange map as 270 degrees toward NAm, which is NOT the case since
Earth is spherical; don`t tell 9330. The next beam ``O`` of 315
degrees would be closer to us (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, June 5 at 0156, S6-S7 of undermodulated
music, again presumed the `Nowhere Radio` transmitter as before. Yes,
some of these did get that ID from ``somewhere in the Midwest``:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, June 5 at 0157 pirate music at S6-S9,
presumed Ball Smacker Radio on usual 0100 UT Saturday show. Many more
reports here including extensive playlist but no SSTV:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82441.0.html
concluding with this from BS itself:

``Sorry if we are a bit weaker tonight, only 30W instead of 200W as we
are camping deep in the woods. Totally solar charged batteries though!
Thanks for toughing it out and we hope to see you at full power next
week. The whole setup including antenna fits in a back pack! Audio
quality is still full if you can hear us. Lighting [sic] doesn't help
either. We really appreciate your reports, good or bad, and emails to
BallSmacker@ProtonMail.com will receive an eQSL reply`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-AM, June 5 at 0159, S9/+10 of rock music,
stronger than the other two on at this time. These say it`s WDOG:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82442.0.html
which kept jumping frequencies from 6950 to 6933, 6930 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4775.04, June 5 at 0202, JBA carrier, presumed still Radio
Tarma on its signature offset. The station had been attacked by
Sendero Luminoso, but apparently another of their transmitters. See
this illustrated story via CadenaDX FB via Don Moore, MARE Tipsheet:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri June 4 at 2210, zero signal of REE English into
Maryland SDR; 11940 is VG but audio keeps cutting out! 15520 is OK;
11670 is surprisingly good way off the Africa beam, so I listen there;
2222 Justin Coe starts playing some blues music, and now 11940 is OK,
S9+5/15; back-timed so it ends just in time for pips at 2230; while on
other days final music gets chopped off but presumably plays out on
podcast of variable length (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2089 monitoring: confirmed Friday
June 4 at 2030 on IRRS `shortwave` via Italia-AM 918 kHz, Villa
Estense, S9+25 into nearby Noale SDR, but local noise level is higher
than usual, same until 2059 ID and FSN. Next:

** U S A. 6159.891, UT Sat June 5 at 0000, WBCQ with double-ID jingle,
JIP WTO theme for `AAAWWW`. First subject is aliens. Checked on a
Maryland SDR I already have up for TRSW. I`m otherwise occupied this
hour, so cede the floor to John Carver:

``Tonight's show started on time on 6160 and 7490 but 6160 was hard to
copy. Allan in the studio in hot and humid Fla with a beautiful
Angela. Angela brings up aliens again, also spam phone calls,
commercials etc. Allan starts reading the new edition of the Free
Radio Weekly at 0017. Talk then continues about radio and space
including SETI. Then a discussion of traveling in space. Phone call at
0049 from Mr. Transistor, Norm about digital AM radio. Another phone
call at 0055 talking about aliens and the pyramids. Reading of emails
at 0058 and off the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 28287.9, June 4 at 2005, beep every ~13 seconds where
one would expect a beacon. Maybe this on exact frequency in NJ5O
list:

``28.2879 N4PZ ? MOUNT MORRIS, ILLINOIS # ?,? Uncoordinated beacon
reported 5 Nov (DK7KG & K4AVO)`` qrz.com:

``N4PZ flag, STEPHEN R GROSS, MOUNT MORRIS, IL 61054`` --- He runs a
beacon on 432 MHz band but nothing about any others. No real sporadic
E beacons audible on 10m at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
