** CANADA. 401 MCW kHz, Nov 28 at 0734 UT, dash and YPO, 500 watt ND
beacon in Peawanuck, Ontario. First audible tuned to 402 USB where
mixing with HU Hutchinson KS really on 404. Only one logged before
offdozing tonight despite entire continent clear of any Blitzstorms.

YPO, logged a number of times since Dec 8, 2018 when I appended:
``love these colourful placenames. Wikipedia: ``Peawanuck is an
isolated Cree community in the Kenora District, Ontario, Canada. It is
located near the confluence of the Winisk and Shamattawa rivers, about
35 km from the Winisk River's end in Hudson Bay. Its population is
237.`` --- that does not mean it is anywhere near Kenora in the SW
corner of the province! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 6100, Nov 27 at 2245, anniversary of Commie Party in
Spanish, with music; about China, not Cuba: CRI this hour via Beijing
site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 7500, Nov 27 at 2254, two Chinese mixing for a
total of S9+10: VOA via THAILAND, and imperialist ChiCom CNR1 jamming
radio war, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 27 at 2246, jazz, presumably the RHC English hour;
what else? Spanish defectively: 13740 S9+40 of dead air, then cuts on
with historical talk, stronger than // 11760; 11850, S9+10 and
suptorted; 9710, S9+25 but suptorted,

Note: the official RHC B21 sked shows the Antillas angle goes from
9710 to 9650 at 0000-0500, yet to be confirmed. Both appear in green
for reasons unknown (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.0 AM, Nov 27 at 2242, S9-S7 of dead air,
presumably some pirate. Halloween 365 reported a bit earlier:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,89609.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

6920.0 AM, Nov 27 at 2243, S8-S6 of undermodulated music, some pirate.
Nothing reported now in HFU but R. Pushka after 0025?
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,89612.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PHILIPPINES. 6150, Nov 27 at 2244, S9-S8 of talk in English and
music, listed this hour as BBCWS via Tinang; no luck checking for R.
Saturno, Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
November 27 starting at 2036.5 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10 into
KB0FX SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 28 at 0030 on WRMIs 7730 and 5950,
both VG direct; program sked now shows something else now on 5950,
maybe from next week?

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 28 already near the end at 0422 UT
on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10 direct and finishing at 0425.5, so
started really early circa 0356: tune in before 0400 to be safe and
listen to the variable-length ham shows.

Not awake at 1330 Sun Nov 28 for WOR on WMRI Europe, via Channel 292,
Germany on 9670. Did anyone hear it? roger in Germany reports:

``WRMI [sic] via 9670 kHz 1300-1330z, WOR2113
Nov 28 at 2:22 PM [= 1322 UT]
https://wmrieurope.com/wrmi_schedule/ [sic]
"Now Playing: Glenn Hauser - wor2113.mp3"
9670 kHz // webstream
http://14843.live.streamtheworld.com/SAM07AAC238_SC
roger``

So he axually heard last week`s WOR before 1330 on 9670? When I look
at the schedule page at 1650, there is nothing about WOR, rather 1300
as Bex Carter, 1330 nothing, 1400 Classic Rock. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2330 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW

** U S A. 5950, Sat Nov 27 at 2302, WRMI for first airing of `Encore`
classical music --- NOT. First hearing Indian classical music, sitar,
tabla, etc., then 2311 a `cello sonata alone; 2327 mixture of S Asian
and `cello, for rest of hour with no announcements at all until 2359.5
WRMI ID and into Wavescan. This certainly does not match the Tumbril
playlist for this week or last. I notified Brice. Nice music but not
Encore, which still shows on the System L sked.

5850, UT Sun Nov 28 at 0100-0200, next broadcast of `Encore` on WRMI
succeeds, matching the Nov 27 playlist with Brice`s commentary. Next
repeat on WRMI should be UT Monday at 0300 on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5050, UT Sun Nov 28 at 0014, WWRB still on summer
frequency/band, contrary to what Dave announced last week, shift to
3215/new 3360. 0200 still on 5050, which is when 3360 was supposed to
start instead of 3195 or 3185; eventually? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Nov 28 at 0055, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` already
underway so switch to $tereo webcast; but original recordings of
George Wright as a teenage thorganist are mono: no wonder, dating from
1938y? Bob Heil explains how the recording fi was as hi as possible
for that era. Finishes at 0140.5, so might have started circa 0040 if
an hour long, but you never know. Is it too much to ask for a program
to stick to a specific start time, whatever it may be? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Nov 27 at 0723, RHC English on this new frequency, S9
and undermodulated --- and by now NONE of The Cuban Five are still on
the air on 59 & 49 metres! Not clear when it start but not yet on when
I checked ~7 hours earlier. Tnx for tip last night in BDXC-UK:

``Radio Havana Cuba (RHC) English heard on 9700 kHz this morning [Nov
26], instead of 6165 kHz, from 0520 UTC tune-in. In parallel to
regular strong 6000 kHz. At 0600 UTC, 6000 and 9700 were joined by
usual frequencies 5040 6060 and 6100 kHz in English. 9700 is difficult
to hear here in the UK as Voice of Turkey uses 9700 in Turkish
0400-0700 UTC. But RHC was audible further west in USA on 9700 using
KiwiSDRs e.g. in Kansas or Colorado. (RHC had used 9700 in B20 period
for a few weeks from November 2020 but then had reverted to 6145 if I
remember correctly). 73 Alan Pennington, Caversham, UK`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 15285.052V, Nov 27 at 1620, algo JBA off-frequency and
wavering. Aoki shows this hour is R. Manara International in Hausa via
Issoudun site. With my habitual USB bandscanning in 1-kHz steps, these
stick out sorethumbedly. See also SAO TOME (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 15460.070, Nov 27 at 1622, another JBA
off-frequency besides FRANCE 15285+. This one is VOA Pinheira
scheduled this semihour in Kir = Kinyarwanda/Kirundi (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 2097.3 CW, Nov 27 at 0730 UT, the single-letter beacon A is
back!!! JBA. I bandscan past here almost every night and have always
been alert for it since last logged in *2020*:

``UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3, May 31 at 0619 UT, single-letter beacon A is
JBA
in noise level, every dekasecond. Altho a reliable source has assured
us it is not heard as a local signal in Quartzsite AZ, I see in
classaxe.com it is still placed in Quartzite [sic] with a period of
10.14 seconds, last logged by anyone there 2020-08-05. QZ is about 17
miles from the CA border on I-10``

With a 10-second period, one must park on 2097 USB for at least that
long. I keep listening a while and find it has sometimes faded out. It
barely makes it vs noise level of S7-S8 in USB mode, or S8-S9 in AM
mode. Now not to be found on classaxe nor LWCA lists. Also note the
numerical date cited ``2020-08-05``, but that was posted on May 31,
2020, when Aug 5 would have been in the future. Did that mean May 8??
Not the usual format, but another failure of ambiguous numerical
dating, rather than not being too lazy to spell out the month!

4095.65, Nov 27, 2021 at 0728, the Desert Whooper beacon also JBA with
sweeps upward, as often heard no more than that and not always logged
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: checking 7290 IRRS
via BULGARIA early at 1903 Fri Nov 26: already on with `Feature Story
News, Spotlight`; via UTwente, only S6-S7 with heavy ACI from 7295
China, even when tuning LSB only. Also on 918 kHz, Italia AM, via
Noale remote a few seconds apart, S9+5/15 above Spanish CCI and also
ACI from 909, not much on 927; 1905 `UN News in Brief`. 1909 `Country
Jamboree` with tunes including `Wake Up, Little Susie`. But only
filler until

1915 IRRS SW ID falsely claiming that it`s in reduced carrier SSB;
and right into WOR 2114 as scheduled; recheck ending at 1944 so played
to completion, but had faded down further, still heavy 7295 ACI; and
into music, hymns.

Also confirmed repeat Fri Nov 26 at 2130 on 918 kHz only, S9+10 into
nearby Noale, with SAH and het from an unID carrier about 919.50 -6 Hz
which was not there earlier. Also checking the 909 kHz ACI: it`s in
Romanian. Three different stations are listed, so three different
programs: 200 kW Cluj with R3 and Hungarian/ethnic; 50 kW Timishoara
with pgm 1; 25 kW Constantsa with R4.

Also confirmed Fri Nov 26 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+10/20 direct.

Also confirmed UT Saturday November 27 at 0230 on WRMI 9395, but can`t
find a good signal anywhere, tnx a lot, MUF! VP to MO and MB SDRs,
nothing to WI, despite 355 azimuth; best offbeam at Maryland S8 vs
high noise level. Next:

** U S A. 7490, Nov 27 at 0036, WBCQ chex via Maryland remote: this
one is S9 but -57 Hz off-frequency = 7489.943 during FKB gospel
huxter. 6160 S5 with rock at -52 Hz = 6159.948. 4790 S7 with TOMBS
-19.5 Hz = 4789.9805. 3265: NO signal. 9330 S9+10 in WLCR Brazuguese,
+0.6 Hz = 9330.0006.

I`m all set for `AAAWWW` on 7490 webcast, UT Sat from 0100: abrupt JIP
`WTO` theme, ``Here we go`` interjexion. A&A are somewhat
overmodulated especially when they interrupt and try to talk over each
other. Allan says it`s ``live``. About picking his nose; riding
horses, Angela doesn`t know how, so is taking lessons? 0113
``trimulcasting` on 7490, 6160, 4790. 0124, `Amos `n` Andy` was hugely
popular at 7 pm ET, every family listening. Whether old radios should
be restored to operational or collected as are, e.g. Atwater-Kents
which were very well made. On and on about radios and very little
political diatribe this week. 0153 FRW stuff, presumably from last
week since this week`s isn`t out yet. 0156 he finally makes a
datestamp, 26 of November, YOOLF 2021; on 7490, 6160, 4790, but
specifically says ``3265 not tonight`` (Wolfgang Bueschel reported
hearing it a few days ago at a very different time, but never heard
here; he since retracted that). Quick look at email including new
pirate logs just in from Larry Will. 0159 prayer running over,
closing, and 0201 JIP Hal Turner. John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160 with a very poor signal
and 7490 was not much better. Allan and Angela in the studio and
opening talk about horses and mounting and dismounting horses
bareback. Then some radio talk and a conversation about an old tube
that Allan has on the desk and then into crystal radio sets. Then into
commercial radio sets from the late twenties and thirties.

At 0153 Allan reads the highlights from the Free Radio News. A bit of
political talk about the IRS and some other governmental agencies at
0155 and then some emails. Program was off the air at 0200. John,
Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Nov 27 at 0725, WEWN Spanish missing again. 12050, Nov
27 at 1618 check, other WEWN Spanish frequency remains, S9 with praise
song (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, Nov 27 at 0728, WWCR-1 is OFF, remaining the other
three on 4840, 5890, 5935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Nov 26 at 0724-0745 UT, another quiet night for LW beacons,
only minor storms in NAm along the BCS/BCN border and the Tamaulipas
coast. Skipping relogs of some major Canadians stronger than usual:

276 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0730 UT, dash and YEL, 200 watt NDB at ELliott
Lake, Ontario, to be decommissioned 2022-01-27. I always wish this
were YELlowknife NWT, but that`s ZF, 3800 watts on 356.

269 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0732 UT, dash and UDE, 25 watt NDB at Delta,
Manitoba

218 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0734 UT, dash and YUY, 500 watt NDB at
Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, a new one for me

351 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0738 UT, dash and YKQ, 500 watt NDB at Fort
Rupert / Waskaganish, Québec; also audible tuned to 350-USB QRMing my
regular RG in OKC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also USA for five more

** U S A. Nov 26 at 0724-0745 UT, another quiet night for LW beacons,
only minor storms in NAm along the BCS/BCN border and the Tamaulipas
coast.

338 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0724 UT, RYN, 400 watt ND beacon at Tucson /
Ryan AZ. Mixing with something else, maybe TU Tulsa or TT StuTTgart AR
heard before. Careful not to confuse with RYD in FL.

329 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0726 UT, AAA, 25 watt NDB at Lincoln / Abraham
IL. Tuned to 327-USB.

293 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0728 UT, UI, 30 watt NDB at qUIncy IL, mixing
with FBY, 25 watts at FairBurY NE: the latter normally dominant alone,
and no sign now of TOR in WY. These three are the only USAs on 293 per
dxinfocentre.com

201 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0737 UT, BV, 25 watt NDB at Bartlesville OK.
Seldom heard

379 MCW kHz, Nov 26 at 0744 UT, DL, 50 watt NDB at Duluth MN. Now
clearly this and not TIL, with the D properly sent without pause
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also CANADA for four more this session

** U S A. 13563.5, Nov 26 at 1505 UT, HIFER beacon YSO, Yellow
Springs, Ohio, JBA call repeating vs CODAR but definitely gaining on
it. No K6FRC on 13565 now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBCs, UT Friday November 26 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 good direct and
S9+30 into MO SDR; 7780, 9+10/15 into UTwente above some lightning
crashes; nearest storms in Corsica, central Mediterranean.

Also confirmed UT Fri Nov 26 at 0330 on WRMI 5985 southward; VP to TWR
Boa Vista SDR; JBA to Trinidad; nor to TWR DR; axually better off the
back to USA SDRs: S5-S6 to Knoxville, but ACI 5980 jamming; best to
Uniontown PA, S9 but SAM reads +95 Hz carrier; yet others such as
Querétaro, S7-S8 shows only -7 Hz. I think the Uniontown is
miscalibrated. Next:

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 5055, Nov 25 at 0730, JBA carrier maybe Radio
4KZ; no signals from the other Pacificans on 5045, 5040, 5035, 5020.
Solomons has been missing lately per Ron, and now there are reports of
political unrest, as in RNZP news at 1300 on 7390 as monitored by
Rodney Johnson, MN, Nov 24:

``A police station and several shops have been set on fire by looters
in Solomon Islands after what started in the morning as a peaceful
protest, calling for the prime minister Manasseh Sogavare to step
down, turned ugly around mid-afternoon.`` UT Nov 25: ``Authorities are
calling for calm and accountability in Solomon Islands, after
political protests developed into looting and buildings were burned in
the capital Honiara`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 6150, Nov 25 at 0726, JBA carrier, maybe the new R. Saturno
at an hour when Manuel Méndez has been hearing it in Spain. Aoki does
not know about it yet, but shows R. Europe, Germany on 6150 starting
at 0700. OTOH, EiBi shows that one from 0900 with Saturno 24h (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9819.124, Nov 25 at 0719, JBA carrrier, no doubt the always
off-frequency R. Nove de Julho; one of two ZYs on air overnight on 31
m, the other:

9666.252V, Nov 25 at 0721, S8-S5 music from R. Voz Missionária, a
reliable overnight signal which has been drifting slowly upwards.
Nothing on its lower frequency 5939+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, re squeal I reported, et al., Alan Holder replies on
the WOR iog:

``Not a new problem. One of the transmitters has shown this fault for
several months. For a long time it was parked on 11530/9525 jamming
Denge Welat. But they tend to switch the transmitters around.

I e-mailed Hasan Altan of TRT engineering about the squealy modulation
on August 5. He promised to pass this information on to the engineers
at Emirler, and he would monitor the situation. Nothing happened for
several months, so I e-mailed him again on October 19. So far, no
reply.

Another of the transmitters suffers from slight hum and a lower
modulation output. You have no doubt observed this on several
occasions when listening.

Regarding your often reported missing 2200/2300 English broadcast, I
suspect it might be their time for transmitter maintenance. Including
the jammer on Denge Welat, all five transmitters are in use at one
point (1400) during the day. but this drops down to only one or two
between 2300 and 0200 UT. Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.``

** EGYPT. 9899.58 approx., Nov 24 at 2158, R. Cairo S7/S9 of carrier,
maybe trace of English modulation direct, much like 24 hours ago.
Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 24 at 2307, token English from REE admittedly
repeating a 10-year-old interview, about the 15-M movement on `Face to
Face` with Prof. Charles Seaworth (sp?); S9/S7 into Maryland SDR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 24 at 2309, VOT English is on but with a new
problem: annoying squeal of variable pitch, like 2-3 kHz on both sides
of carrier so transmitted that way; S9 signal into Maryland SDR, and
same squeal into UTwente. They agree carrier is only off by plus 1.7
Hz. 2317 into a feature about the sciatic nerve, not an everyday
topic. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2113 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November
24 from 2200:26 on WBCQ 7490, S9+15/25 direct. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 5010 to S

One may also contribute PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Nov 24 circa 2000 UT, WRMI with TOMBS, // much
stronger 9980 WWCR. WRMI skedgrid is self-contradictory: XMTR 3 atop
shows 9955 as 24 hours including TOMBS at 16-22 and 05-11; but System
B for 9955 shows ``Internet only`` at 17-22 and 05-11 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3265, Nov 24 at 2324 check, no signal from this WBCQ into
Maryland SDR; altho Wolfgang Bueschel reported it among Koreans on 90m
via remote in Japan, today at 1352 on 3264.706V. It had not been
reported at any hour for several weeks, not even during `AAAWWW` when
sometimes ``quadri-casting``; last time I heard it that hour was
August 27. So maybe it`s coming back, supposedly available 24h, mostly
for TOMBS. Propagation 101 would suggest it`s most useful during
winter nights, when even 7490v may not propagate (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5954, Nov 24 at 0306, pulse jamming: remnant against
long-gone R. República which was on this frequency from Costa Rica.
Something`s always incompetent at the DentroCuban Jamming Command
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 24 at 1605, RHC Spanish S9+20 but very suptorted,
also some F#? tone like heard on 13700`s spurs. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

CUBA IS SLOWLY WAKING UP
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1637680770_35719.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.58 approx., Nov 23 at 2202, S7-S9 dead air direct,
maybe trace of modulation from R. Cairo attempting English, on
signature off-frequency. No het from 9900.00 China yet. Something`s
always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Quite a haul of ND beacons on a low-noise night,
Nov 24 at 0725-0757 UT, but most of them relogs so I will skip
detailed entries for each except for some anomalies:

391 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0728 UT, dash and seems like IAETEI --- maybe
negative keying? There is an AI on 394 in Anderson IN, 25 watts.

379 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0730 UT, copied as TIL: apparently really DL,
Duluth MN, 30 watts; tuned to 377-USB

293 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0737 UT, mixture of UI, 30 watts from Quincy
IL; and TOR, 50 watts from Torrington WY; tuned to 291-USB

275 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0748? UT, mixture, only letters copied are DY
and H. Nothing seems to fit.

212 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0757 UT, JBA unreadable algo: only logged
before is YGX, 50 watts in Manitoba. I have trouble copying any below
240, maybe R75 receiver sensitivity / antenna length issues.

The relogs were: 420 FQ MN, 417 IY IA, 414 ATS NM, 408 JDM KS, 362 SB
ON, 347 AFK NE, 346 YXL ON, 336 TU OK, 335 YLD ON, 329 PMV NE, 284 QD

** CANADA. 1610 kHz, Nov 23 at 0730 UT, CHHA ID celebrating its 17th
anniversary, ``ahora con 10 mil vatios, La Voz de la Comunidad``, so
seems to have quit the ``Voces Latinas`` slogan. Anyhow in Spanish now
rather than Punjabi overnight. ``Clear`` channel except for TIS, not
even Anguilla, gives it huge advantage over bigger Toronto stations,
1010, 740 etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157, Nov 23 at 0719, pulse jamming centred here, as for
weeks, originally against some Exile ham? But not on 7215 this time,
rather, all against nothing, no Martí: 7355 which continues heavy and
uniquely with a tone; 7365; 7375 vs WINB DRM hybrid below 7380; 7435,
5980, 6030. Something always incompetent at the DentroCuban Jamming
Command (Glenn Hauser, OK,WOR)

** EGYPT [and non]. CORRECTING frequency typos? replace with:

** EGYPT [and non]. 9899.57 approx., Nov 21 at 2235, R. Cairo must be
trying again, with a VP carrier direct hetting stronger 9900.00 which
supplies the Chinese audible. The latter CNR jamming or RTI scheduled
to start at 2230 before the English sesquihour from Abis be over at
2245 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.590, Nov 22 at 2111, big carrier with het/tone, into
UTWente, at first in Synch mode displaying as 9899.291 but ``not
locked``. Jiggling a bit, it does lock as the first frequency above.
2115 trace of suptorted music, 4+1 timesignal cuts thru at least 30
seconds late --- but probably from studio recording, rather than a
truly accurate source, rather like the opening of VORW. I can tell the
JBM talk is in English with occasional recognizable words, 2118 sounds
like a program summary. Wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Tue Nov 23 at 1558 and further chex past
1600, another fruitless try at UTwente SDR for Kashmir Civitas, which
was first missing one week ago. HFCC has IRRS registered entire B21
season from ``MIL``. Does not show on NEXUS-IBA program schedule but
think it never did anyway, very undetailed and otherwise not updated.

K.C. has this YouTube site:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHCJ-2jwTeQs7Jb--H8fZ4w

which includes linx to old programs titled ``Radio - Free Kashmir
`Paez Kath` - Hard Truth``, 12 of them but numbered up to 25, at
widely variable lengths, mostly ``one year ago``, each under 100
views: what an impact (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2113 monitoring; next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

UNIDENTIFIED. Nov 23 at 1600 UT, marginal level-1 tropo blob with Enid

BAD signals on RF TV channels: 11, 12, 21, 26, 34, 35, 36; into my

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 21 at 2235, S9+10/S8 of silence except for some
hum, but at least the RHC `English` hour is on the dead air.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

11880, Nov 22 at 2253, RHC is S9/S7 but undermodulating in English, so
they`re still attempting to do it from 2200. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 22 at 0640, RHC incorrect language, Spanish; while
the rest of The Cuban Five are still sufficiently Englishing: 6000,
6060, 6165, 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** ROMANIA. 11975+, Nov 22 at 1531, perceptibly slightly
off-frequency+plus in Romanian; yes, it`s RRI bihour via Galbeni site
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday November 22 at 2300, REE token English is VG
via Maryland remote; first news leading with more vulcanism at La
Palma; circa 2310 Justin Coe`s feature celebrating St. Cecelia today,
mostly early music such as Josquin des Prez and Tomás Luis de
Victoria, but 2327 concluding with Wátermelon Slim, ``She Makes Me

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Nov 22 at 2330, not a trace of VOT English into
UTwente, which must be AWOL again, rather Chinese at S9, which is PBS
Xinjiang, Urumqi, land of imperialist Chinese genocide against Uyghurs

** U S A [non]. 9275, Nov 22 at 1534, S8/S3 song/hymn in Chinese. It`s
still FEBC, Bocaue site, PHILIPPINES at 1000-1600. Aoki calls it
``i-Radio Liangyou`` probably from a ``partner organisation``.

9275 is of course the only known frequency planned for the imminent
revival of WMLK, but registered for 1700-2200 only so there would be
no conflict; but would neighbor in more ways than one, WINB find 9265

tone, S3, i.e. minus 132 kHz from 13700-AM, so it`s 2nd order; and
first should be minus 66 kHz = 13634: and there it is, a bit stronger
S6, but cuts off at 1558* as 13700 has also been turned off before I
can check matches on plus side which should be 13766 and 13832; not to

virtual channels of KTBO, the TBN station in OKC, I see on 14-5 an old
B&W movie instead of gospel-huxtering; silenced with captions I am
startled to see something about ``big tits`` --- on TBN!!! Soon

** U S A. 5050, Nov 21 at 0025 checking whether WWRB still be up here:
it is, and happen to catch Dave Frantz announcing his QSY plans as of
next Saturday: since some receivers won`t tune below 3200, trying 3360
instead from 9 pm EST = *0200 UT, duration probably variable for a
couple hours? Still on 3215 at 6-9 pm EST = *2300-0200* UT when WWCR
takes over 3215. Recently someone had an unID on 3360, possibly this
testing? Dave still doesn`t get it that he doesn`t need to change
frequency in mid-transmission to accommodate WWCR. For now, 5050 is
only S6-S7 with splash from 5040 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Nov 21 at 0051, WTWW-2 webcast starting
`Theatre Organ Under the Arch`, another George Wright tribute but the
music from an old recording is rather distorted unlike the new talk
commentary. That plus glut of other programming at 0100 makes me leave
it for `Encore` classical music on WRMI 5850, nor TRSW FRSH on WRMI
5950. Already back to rock at 0145 check so this week well under 59
minutes long (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Wellington KS, yes, it`s still there making fast SAH with KWKH, but

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Nov 20 at 0100, WBCQ webcast starts
`AAAWWW`. I don`t even try SW now but earlier noticed that had
reverted to minus instead of plus side of 7490.000. First interjexion
in WTO theme is ``O, yeah``. Starts gloating about Kyle Rittenhouse
not-guilty verdict as if this is somehow a loss for false president
Biden. They hope Kyle will sue those who opposed the verdict. Etc.,
etc., usual political rants against moonbats = democrats = socialists
= communists. 0120 hopes trimulcasting on 7490, 6160, 4790.

Explains rerun 2 weeks ago: an hour before airtime a big oak tree fell
on house and power was out most of night. And last week no show
because out of town on business. 0123 datestamp as 19 of November,
YOOLF 2021. Refers to Vice President Kamala Harris, who was briefly
President today, as ``the clown``. 0135 rants that WBCQ has been
``punished`` by ``this government, the FCC`` for being religious and
conservative, i.e. about denying the WHRI acquisition. Usual vague
threats about lawsuits pending. Altho it is a matter of public record
that Allan`s own sister, Barbara, was instrumental in filing
opposition to the sale, I`ve never heard him mention her or hint that
it`s such a family matter. Another blind spot: FCC stalling of WHRI
sale started under the government of T****, but oops, He Can Do No
Wrong.

0138 complete change of subject, an article about evolution on the
grand scale such that advanced ETs would have developed into
Artificial Intelligence beings, and that may be the ultimate fate of
us mere flesh-and-blood carbon lifeforms. 0153 reads some items from
new Free Radio Weekly just out, never with enough detail to enable
further loggings. Emails: someone points out huge deficit T**** ran
up, is that OK? Sure, any tax breaks to big business trickle down,
good for us all. What happened last week with Tim Tron? He doesn`t
know. 0200 prayer as usual running over a minute past opening of Hal
Turner, JIP 0201. Here`s John Carver`s version listening on SW only:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790 and 6160 but no signal on
7490. Allan and Angela in the studio. Opening talk about the trial in
MN. Then reads a piece sent to him from Camp Constitution. 6160 goes
to hell about then so have to switch to 4790 as there is still nothing
on 7490. Discussion about the piece and the government in general.
Then some talk about one of Allan's favorite things, the IRS. Allan
said that last week they were gone on business and the week before
when a rerun ran they were ready to start the show and a tree fell and
killed the power to their neighborhood. Then some Trump talk for
awhile. Also talks again about how they were persecuted for being
conservative, religious, believing in free speech and free thinking.
Also reads a piece that posits that AI will overtake humans in the
future and flesh and blood people will cease to exist and that ET is
actually AI. Then more discussion about this. Brief reading of emails
and starts off at 0153 with an overview of the Free Radio Weekly. The
computer at the station restores the feed for Brother Stair promptly
at 0200 cutting off Allan's show. No closing prayer this evening and
surprisingly no phone calls. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser,

``The Power Vacuum in Cuba Paves the Way for the Onset of a New
Revolution --- The members of Archipiélago embody a social movement
born of civility, not violence. The regime's ideological and political
foundation is broken. EMILIO MORALES | Miami

Map with some of the cities where there will be Cuban demonstrations
for change. (Yan Estrada. Archipiélago/Facebook)

Many wonder what will happen in Cuba in the days, weeks and months
that lie ahead, given the tension spawned by the systemic failure of
the regime and the spread of citizen protests the likes of which had
not been seen in the last 62 years. For the first time the balance
seems to lean more towards the fall of the "Havana Wall" than towards
the regime's perpetuation in power.

It is still difficult to know when it will happen, but in any case, no
matter how the regime resists the forces of change, what represents
the new will end up prevailing over all that no longer works.

The so-called "Cuban Revolution" is dead because it was tailor-made
for a dictator who had no qualms about designing and implementing it
at his convenience, employing sheer terror. . .``

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Nov 17 at 1512, still NO signal from
LRA36 into three Brazilian SDRs; nor at 1543 into one Argentine.
Formerly active bihour Wed around 14-16, so suspect summer hiatus in
progress until the new quadri-woman team take over in Feb or Mar
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** THAILAND. 13750, Nov 18 at 0002, checking out HSK9 North American
service of R. Thailand, as I am amazed by the decent to good reception
often reported elsewhere in the continent, but the 250 kW never any
good here. My generous meter claims S5-S8 but it sounds VP, with
flutter, unreadable. Will there be any change at 0030 when they
supposedly switch slews from east coast to west? Well, at 0032 it`s
even worse, JBA carrier.

Who cares about reaching the Great Center of North America? HFCC B21
shows CIRAF 7, central for the entire span 0000-0330 UT but axually on
periphery of E&W; center beam of 30 degrees only at 0030-0100 is
slewed -24 to 6 degrees at 0000-0030 and again 0200-0330 when CIRAF 8
is added = east coast; slewed +8 degrees to 38 for English at
0030-0100 only; English again at 0200-0230 for the east coast, same as
at 0000, scheduling which does not make much sense.

As for the approx. center targets of each beam: 6 degrees, north of
Alaska, into Detroit; 30 degrees skirting SW Alaska mainland, to
Portland to El Paso; 38 degrees, across Aleutians down California
coast such as Point Reyes.

Meanwhile, I am also checking remotes, for comparison: in Maryland
there is no signal before or after 0030. Of course this path is almost
transpolar, and would normally be inferior, less propagable.

However, the KPH remote at Point Reyes on the coast of California is
getting it at S3, yet sufficiently readable, also with quick
short/long path echo which I am hardly expecting: Comparing short to
long path from Udorn to KPH, the short path goes no further north than
the Aleutian islands, while LP crosses the Indian Ocean, the other
Prince Edward Island, ham DXpedition target Bouvet, across Argentina,
Galápagos and up the west coast of México. All this consulting my
trusty NGS globe with geometer.

Short distance is 7600 statute miles = 12231 km, per
distancefromto.net so long path would be 17300 stmi = 28360 km. The
difference between L&S = 16130 km. Compared to speed of light, 298
Mm/sec, that`s 0.054 second, or an echo delay of between 1/19 and 1/20
of one second. All approx., of course, and axual distances bouncing
off the ionosphere would be slightly more than great circles at ground
level.

Via KPH remote: 0025 a *commercial* for Subaru cars with cruise
control, 0026 news headlines. Probably the only government external
service with ads. Carrier drops for a few sex at 0029.5, interrupting
headlines, back on sounds slightly louder but not on the meter in USB
mode. In AM mode it makes S4. And now it switches to THAI rather than
another semi-hour in English! as had been the case in previous seasons
and still alleged in HFCC B21. Checking KPH again at 0208, reads S3
but sounds JBA in presumed English.

Further evidence that while accessing the VOA relay in Udorn, no doubt
as part of the bilateral deal, PRD ought to insist on using Greenville
for broadcasts to North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 397 MCW kHz, Nov 17 at 0725 UT, ND beacon which is broken.
CIN? Third letter stutters. It`s really CIR, 25 watts from Cairo IL,
and another listener also found this in RNA Signals List:
https://rxx.classaxe.com/en/rna/signals
``20181130 - Bill Stewart reports a 'hic-up' on the 'R'. Often sounds
like CIN``. Already went over this anomaly in my last log of January
27. They sure have had plenty of time to fix it! (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 407 MCW kHz, Nov 17 at 0721 UT, regular HRU, 25-watt NDB at
Herington KS is mixing with a weaker one, but almost the same period,
currently obscuring its first letter, but it ends with OC. Aha, that`s
OOC, 25 watt NDB in Natchitoches LA, which I discussed at length
recently. RNA Signals List indeed shows a period of 7.90 seconds for
HRU, and 7.8 seconds for OOC. So it would take a long wait for them to
separate at the rate of 0.1 second per iteration. Eventually they
would be totally alternating. I was tuned to 405 USB where I hear them
much better than 407 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2111 monitoring: Richard Lemke, Alberta

** CUBA. 15370, Nov 16 at 2054, RHC S9+25 in suptorted French, while
English on 15140 is not so bad. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Time for another episode of The Other Side, lest we be swayed by RHC
propaganda, even if we could understand it:

``The Success of #15NCuba --- For those who dreamed of a sudden end to
the dictatorship, not much happened…but for those who understand that
outcome as the result of an already- irreversible process, the
November 15 demonstrations were a triumph...``
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1637069576_35579.html

And as I write this on the PBS Newshour:
https://video.kqed.org/video/cuba-crackdown-1637101529/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Nov 16 at 1610, routine check for weekly
Tuesday clandestine Kashmir Civitas via IRRS via Romania: NO signal
into UTwente. Is it all over? I garbled it again last time as
``Citivas`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. Re my lament that DDP beacon on 391 is not being
heard, this reply: ``Hi Glenn! Yes, I was the listener who last
reported hearing beacon DDP-391 on Nov 7 with complete details, which
is why my logging shows up in the RNA Signal List. On the NDB
Groups.io list, several listeners reported it off starting around Nov
10, but it has since been reported on the same list as being back on
around Nov 15. None of these listeners reported their reception
details, so their reports do not show up on the RNA Signal List. One
of the listeners who keeps careful track of NOTAMs reporting that
there was none issued for DDP during this period. Steve Howe, Saint
Albans, VT``

Guess what, in the meantime I did log DDP for the first time this
season: 391 MCW kHz, Nov 16 at 0735, DDP; also audible tuned to 389
USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 359 MCW kHz, Nov 16 at 0737, SDR, 25-watt ND beacon at
Snyder TX, not far from OK but seldom herd; tuned to 358 USB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7240 LSB, Tue Nov 16 at 2105, ``No Name Net`` taking 15
check-ins, some talkovers, including from KS and OK. First QSO seemed
about random topix as to be expected. This appeared in final edition
of John Norfolk`s ``Nets to You`` schedule of April 2007 when it was
at 2200 M/W/F on 7230-LSB in Central US (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2112 monitoring: despite my best plans,
missed checking Tue Nov 16 at 2330 on WRMI 9955, which Richard Lemke
caught last week. But Jeff White now confirms it has started at that
new time and his schedule has been updated. Next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 5010 to S

** U S A. 9275, Nov 16 at 2059, still no sign of a signal from the new
WMLK transmitter, which had been projected for end of October. So?
Nothing later than this at:

http://wmlkradio.net/2021/09/25/facebook-posts/

** U S A. RF 14, Nov 16 at 1658 UT, KERA-HD breaks thru with ``KERA
KIDS`` full-screen ID on 13-1. I get 13-2 to PSIP as kids -- lower
case, as another PBS station overdoes it with *two* channels for them
during daytime. Rabbitears.info shows KERA also with 13-3 Create and
13-4 World Channel; did not get to those before fadeout. KETA OKC has
its 2, 3 and 4 in different order: -2 World, -3 Create, -4 Kids.

I was sitting on RF 14 as it looked liable to decode: would it be KOCY
OKC LP? From 1630 I was getting lots of tropo-enhanced BAD signals,
such as 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 21, 26; while some `local` OKC channels
were not decoding, no doubt because of DX QRM, even really local Enid
powerhouse K17JN-D. Two Tulsa marketers did come thru, RF 20 and RF
28.

I was expecting KS instead of TX, since KHCC 90.1 was completely
overriding KUCO when trying to hear `Stardate` at 1558: only barely by
nulling R Kansas as much as possible by pointing the PL-880 rod toward
KS. KERA and DFW Metroplex happen to be almost same direxion from here
as OKC where the TV antenna is aimed. Rabbitears shows KERA`s 975 kW
ERP direxional for the northern hemisphere from Cedar Hill antenna
farm at SE corner of Dallas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9900, Nov 14 at 2254, checking too late for Cairo, rather
Chinese echoing, S8-S6 with flutter, so CNR1 jamming of RTI Taiwan
from 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9630, Nov 14 at 2308, Chinese opera S9+20/30, per Aoki CRI
Cantonese this hour only, from Jinhua 831 site. There is vocalizing so
it`s not Firedragon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 6865, Nov 15 at 2316, JBA algo, S7-S6 with flutter, presumed
CNR1 jammer on a known SOH frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sun Nov 14 at 2259, RHC in Spanish, not Esperanto, but
maybe already finished from 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 14 at 2301, RHC S9/+30 in French, but JBM with
hum. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Something`s always wrong at
RHC:

11850, Nov 14 at 2302, RHC S9+20 in Spanish, but suptorted, with JBA
parasitic spur carriers plus and minus 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9900, Nov 15 at 2126, NO signal from R. Cairo English into
UTwente. Maybe they got the message from monitors that last few days`
attempts were fruitless due to abominable modulation. Sad (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, Nov 14 at 2252, rock music at S9+20. HFU
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,89131.0.html
has many logs but none later than 2229 of Outhouse Radio, relaying
others, SSTV images.

6925-AM, Nov 14 at 2253, JBA talk in the shadow of 6930-USB; no logs
on HFU until Pandemic Radio starting up at 0132 Nov 15 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR) see also UNIDENTIFIED

** PUERTO RICO. 391 MCW kHz, Nov 14 at 0732, NO signal from DDP, 1000
watt NDB in San Juan / Dorado. I heard it several times last winter,
but no luck so far now. Is it off the air? Still in dxinfocentre.com;
and the RNA Signal List at classaxe.com as Luis Muñoz Marín
international AP, last heard 2021-11-07, power could be 2 or 3 kW. But
something changed for the worse? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 15 at 2300, token English on Monday from REE,
sufficient direct into portable DX-398 with shortwire. 10 minutes of
news this time, followed by Amy Egan interview at 2310 with manager of
Palace Hotel about the post-pandemic return of luxury travel; like,
now already? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Nov 14 at 2312, S8-S9 but JBM, sounds like
YL talk, language not certain. Checking for VOT English but should be
doing better than this, off? Also sked per Aoki is PBS Xinjiang,
Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, land of ChiCom imperialist genocide against
Uyghurs and other Moslems, in Chinese. Also in the new B-21 EiBi as
starting at 2310. However, JRX in Brasil was hearing VOT same date at
2348-2355. Possibly came on late?

5960, Nov 15 at 2259, no signal on the portable, but 2314 on the
bigrig something JBA, China instead of Turkey? But but, via UTwente at
2333 tune-in, immediate VOT ID in English, S9/+15. So the TRT N
American service just isn`t making it this far. Also some CCI
presumably Urumqi. At 0000 Nov 16, Turkey off and CNR clearly
uncovered with timesignal, Chinese anthem (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. ND beacon scans are disrupted by a local noise
source which cuts on and off LW irregularly, as if a
thermostat-controlled heater blower, certainly not from my house.

329 MCW kHz, Nov 15 at 0722 UT, PMV, 25 watt ND beacon from
Plattsmouth NE.

325 MCW kHz, Nov 15 at 0724 UT, BV, 25 watt NDB from Batesville AR.
Mixing with dash YLD, 1000 watts from Chapleau, Ontario, normally the
only one heard here.

341 MCW kHz, Nov 15 at 0726 UT, DNI, 25 watt NDB from Sherman /

normally reigns

347 MCW kHz, Nov 15 at 0728 UT, AFK, 25 watt NDB from Nebraska City
NE.

383 MCW kHz, Nov 15 at 0730 UT, LB, 25 watt NDB from Liberal KS,
mixing with others, first copied maybe as LBO? Rapid repeats without
much pause. Also CNP, 25 watts from Chappelle NE.

385 MCW kHz, Nov 15 at 0732 UT, HO, 200 watt NDB from HOt Springs AR;
