** CUBA. 11880, Oct 12 at 2302, NO signal from RHC English; also off
in Spanish: 11850 and its 11840/11860 parasites: something`s always
wrong at RHC. But on are: 11760 with humbuzz, 11670; and 11980 JBA
probably 2 x 5990 CRI English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5990, Oct 13 at 0142, RHC English with thin-voiced YL, wrong
frequency instead of 6000; and also JBA on 2X = 11980; // 6165 on
right frequency instead of 6145. Thus of the two NAm English channels
at 00-05, you never know which two of four frequencies will be in use.
Something`s something`s always always wrong wrong at at RHC RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 13 at 0143, RHC Spanish is S9/+10 but suptorted,
rather than completely off 2 hours and 41 minutes earlier. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 11860, Wed Oct 12 on caradio, nothing but choral music
on R. Martí, various chex during the 17-18 UT hour, no jamming heard.
unseems sacred, but program sked shows for this date and time:
https://www.radiotelevisionmarti.com/radio/schedule/4
easily reached via Alan Roe`s WORLD OF RADIO Hitlist:
``13:00 - 14:00 [EDT] La Santa Misa
PROGRAMACIÓN EN-VIVO DESDE LA ERMITA DE LA CARIDAD``, i.e. the Shrine
of Our Lady of Charity, in, where else, Miami, thus violating
Separation of Church and State. Tripadvisor explains: ``es un templo
católico de la Arquidiócesis de Miami dedicado a Nuestra Señora de la
Caridad, Patrona de Cuba, ubicado en Coconut Grove, Miami, Florida``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Oct 12 at 1505, JBA carrier direct, 1508 late
tune-in via UTwente SDR to another weekly Kashmir Citivas, from IRRS,
worse than usual, not solid, only S9-S6 --- and it`s completely in
English! about legacy of British colonialism, atop usual strumming. I
notify the WOR iog but it`s too late, 1511 switch back to Urdu talk.
No Western music fill this week, chopped off at 1529* but not before
we hear the last two notes of the RRI IS, pause, and then the first
note, before gone; tantalizing those who guessed this via Bulgaria?
Instead of ROMANIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MARTINIQUE. 18133.4-USB correct FM4LV frequency in last report, not
typo 18134.4 (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Oct 12 at 2301 and 11940 at 2312, zero signals from
the two REE frequencies scheduled to run past 2305 weekdays: maybe the
geomag storm have delayedly hit, outwiping such prop. At 2100, K-index
was 3 with moderate space weather = G2-level storms preceding and
predicting. By 2400, same except no more predicted (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring; next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [? not Oct 6]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 12 at 0252, WBCQ World`s Last Chance is on again,
VG S9+20/30, Canadian-accented interviewer with someone about
Antarctica; anti-Rothschild, anti-elite. Wondering if some other
far-right political show? Not your usual pontificating. Oh2: Then
country song so wacko it could be taken as a parody on any other
station, like: there was never a man on the moon, it was made-for-tv;
stars and moon are not that far away, all we have is under a dome;
there are no satellites, no matter how upwards dishes are aimed, they
are really picking up terrestrial signals, from this Flat Earth;
partly paraphrased.

9330 is now much stronger than its nearest neighbor SW station, 9265
WINB; but way above other WBCQs: 7490v JBA, 6160v TOMBS. 0259 a few
notes of the menacing WLCR theme before cutoff the air. If I happened
to tune in now, I would have concluded it`s still AWOL. Cut back on
the air at *0300.7 with legal ID by AW, and then YL WLC ID also as on
WBCQ, more English. Presumably had to break for antenna rotation, but
no difference here before/after signal levels. HFCC shows at 0300 it
goes from 245 to 270 degrees, but also changes antenna designator from
805 to 216, huh? Both as only 250 kW. Surely it`s the exact same
Ampegon rotatable, but HFCC references:
805 LPH18/36.5/32.2/16.7/1.4/13.2/200
216 AHR(S)4/4/0.5
Maybe someone can explain that? From log periodic to rhombic? HFCC
provides no key or explanation to its lengthy antenna reference table
included in the zips with schedules (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Oct 12 at 2256, WRMI with rock is S9+20/30, despite
alleged SSE angle, strong enough to audiblize plus/minus 5 kHz
parasitic spurs --- but none detected now: problem fixed, or
intermittent; or differing transmitter units and/or antennas subject
to those? The messy modulation from TOMBS elsewhen could also be
responsible, not from that now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 12 at 0324, VP signal in presumed Hindi from
presumed WRNO as nothing else is scheduled in A-21; usually much
stronger when on, but at that awkward 1-megameter distance; and was
missing last night just after 0100. It`s hard to believe this
transpolar signal accomplish any significant service to India at
8:45-9:30 am IST (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6932?-USB?, Oct 12 at 2259, pirate music I can`t get to
resolve in LSB or USB, stepping up and down 1 kHz; and then gone.
Maybe the problem be the unrecognizable music. Not very, but the
closest log to this in HFU is unID on 6933 earlier:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87648.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15833-USB, Oct 12 at 2303, 2-way in Spanish discussing
putas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13637 & 13763 approx., Oct 11 at 1414, FMish weak S3
spurblobs from S9+10 RHC 13700-AM, plus/minus ~63 kHz. With signature
F# above Cmiddle tones. Welcome back! Despite almost daily morningly
bandscans, nonesuch noted for months. Last time a search hits on
``spurblob 13700`` was my report of July 19 & 16. I knew they could do
it! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Oct 11 at 2218, S8-S9 of dead air from RHC, where
something`s always wrong; while 15370 in Spanish is S9+10/20 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MARTINIQUE. 18134.4-USB, Oct 11 at 2214, FM4LV keeps repeating ID
only with different fonetix, as if in some contest; see UNIDENTIFIED.
So no doubt about it except whether it`s really the caller or the
callee. No replies heard. His qrz.com reveals no details beyond name
and QSL only via a W3 manager, not even Where in MQ: ``FM4LV
Martinique flag Martinique, Gérard LUCE``; but does illustrate his
nice QSL of six ladies in elaborate costumes:
https://cdn-bio.qrz.com/v/fm4lv/FM4LV.jpg
Now no need to jump thru hoops to get one (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA. 18133.2-USB, Oct 11 at 2204, HP3SS discussing remote
control setups so others from abroad can operate from his QTH in
Panamá; sounds like an American. QRZ.com info: ``HP3SS Panama flag
Panama, Robby Robertson, Volcán, Panamá. I have been living in Panama
since October 2015. I operated as HP3/VY2SS for almost year while I
waited for my Panama call. It doesn't normally take that long. I live
in Volcan, Chiriquí Province. I am at 4550 ft ASL. Temp is always 23C
and I like it here. I enjoy contesting and DX`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 12030.055V, Oct 11 at 0627 French talk, JBA
yet the SSOB. Is low latitude propagation from VOA Pinheira relay,
French 0600-0629 daily. This site often significantly off-frequency,
does not speak well for USAGM engineering. V indicates it`s also
audibly wavering, while a small v would merely indicate varies but
steady at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Mon Oct 11 at 2200, token English from REE says main
topic will be part 2 about US/Spain relations in Cold War, including
the SAC bombing incident. Geomag disturbance predicted not hit yet as
this holds up well S8-S9, also audible backwards on 15520 but 11940
blocked by wideband FMish splash maybe local (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
October 10 at 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia, 918 kHz, S9+8 into nearby
Noale SDR.

Also confirmed Sun Oct 10 at 2230 on WRMIs: 5950, VG S9+20/30 and 9955
S9+20, both into Tennessee SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 11 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 11 after 0130 on WRN N America webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 11 from 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-,
minus 53 Hz = 6159.947, S9+10/15 into Maryland SDR; with ACI from Cuba
back on 6165 ex-6145 last night. Next, not until Wednesday:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [? not Oct 6]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 9330, Oct 11 at 0622, WBCQ WLCR is gone again, no signal
while these remain VG: 9265 WINB, 9395 & 9455 & 9955 WRMI. 9330 still
gone at 2223 Oct 11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), Oct 11 at 2330 after semi-UBMP repeat, WBCQ
webcast plays national spot commercial for McDonalds` Breakfasts, then
immediately `Camp Constitution Radio` on an anti-vax rant which he
expects will get him banned from You Tube. Does McD corporate know
what it is really sponsoring here? Assuming CCR set this up, the price
for a single spot in terms of domestic radio could well pay for the
entire semihour program`s SW airtime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 11 at 0105, again no signal from WRNO (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18157-USB, Oct 10 at 2213, pileup after a DX station. US
hams keep blasting their own calls and nothing else time and again
over each other. I withhold IDing them. Once in the mess, I
tentatively hear a weak HC2+ call from Ecuador, maybe the target. This
is fun? Another pileup on 18160-USB. The F2 MUF was way up with lots
of 28 MHz TA contacts NAm/Europe blacklined on DX Map but nothing much
here, not even 10m beacons (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. See MARTINIQUE, PANAMA. Higher in the 18 MHz band,
pileups as there must be some kind of contest, maybe not DX, mostly US
& Canadians repeating their calls over and over, apparently hoping
someone will reply without even saying CQ or QRZ --- that would gobble
up valuable milliseconds. From about 18154 to 18165, October 11 at
2210-2215, stations spaced at fraxion of kHz intervals, making for not
only CCI but lots of adjacent SSB QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11815, Oct 10 at 0059, S1-S3 with flutter maybe English?
Then song plays right thru hourtop 0101+. Must be R. Brasil Central,
only station known active at this hour; nor was there an off-frequency
tipoff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Oct 10 at 0104-0111: 12880, Chinese
S1-S2 with flutter; 12820, 13020, 13130, JBA carriers on traditional
channels; 13530 & 13920 & 14920, JBA S1 with flutter; 16100 JBA with
CODAR QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Oct 10 at 0042, RHC English jumps again to here from
6165, still // 6000; clearing 6160- for Area 51. Something`s
fortunately wrong at RHC. 0625 recheck, still 6145; also in English:
6100, 6060 with humbuzz, and 5040 on late (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 11880, Oct 10 at 0101, S9/+20 of dead air with
some hum; finally cut on modulation 0102.6 of KBSWR in Spanish about
NK rapprochement. Was this Grimesland`s failure or somewhere
upstreamm? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, Oct 10 at 0620, RNZP again tonight on frequency
extended instead of 11725, discussion about divorce and marriage, good
S9. Nothing on 11725 or 7245. That would be the `TED Radio Hour`, from
NPR, Sunday 7:04 pm local:
https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/schedules/20211010
Leave it to NZ to have the good sense to broadcast some US NPR
programs on SW, unlike any of our own stations.

Altho always misleadingly headed as effective from start of season
March 28, instead of latest revision date, the How To Listen sked has
belatedly now been updated to eliminate 11725 in our late-nights:

** OKLAHOMA. `Weekend Radio` comedy show from WCLV Cleveland has a
competition to present funny faux-pas from the press, so we submitted
this from our local paper:
https://www.w4uvh.net/EnidEagle_cannibals_notated.jpg

It won the prize of CD already received, Bridge 9470, ``Berl Senofsky
in Concert at EXPO `58 Brussels``, violin and piano music by Ravel,
Bartók, Rachmaninoff, Ysaÿe, Creston, Wieniawski, Bach, Brahms2.

Here`s a lo-fi capture of that segment on the UT Oct 10 show at 0326:

Furthermore, as we later notified Sagebrush Bob, the Eagle ed/pub
later wrote a whole column about this:

(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
October 9 at new 2330 on WRMI 5950, VG S9+30 into TN SDR.

Also confirmed on NEXUS-IBA webcast-only at 2334 about 3 or 4 minutes
behind WRMI, so they must still be sticking in some FS News first,
probably causing a few minutes of WOR to be chopped at the end.

Also confirmed UT Sunday October 10 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30
direct but not enough to eliminate S7/S9 storm noise level from South
Dakota/Minnesota and Bahamas/Cuba.

Not confirmed UT Sunday Oct 10 circa 0315 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM: still
completely off the air as it was at 1930.

Zzz past 1300 Sun Oct 10; did anyone hear the new 1230 on WMRI Europe
via Channel 292, Germany, 9670? And how was the QRM from Vietnamese
clandestine via Taiwan, and jamming? [BTW, even I slipped and called
it ``WRMI`` on WOR 2107]. Next:

** U S A. 7489.9v, UT Sun Oct 10 at 0616, WBCQ on very late again with
some classic rock, S8-S9, a regular weekly thing? Last time caught at
same hour was Oct 4, UT Mon not Sun. Either appears on WBCQ program
sked? Of course not! Supposedly off at 0330* Sun & Mon and every night
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Oct 10 at 0015, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` already;
direct as I`m not near a $tereo webcast. 0031 after playing one of his
own compositions, Bob Heil mentions that from now on it`s an hour
long, and next week`s will be the ``best ever`` special with his
mentor George Wright. It ends at 0055, into Tedad. Bob never dares
specify an exact time for the show, but if it were an hour this week,
must have started about 2354 Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4875-USB, Oct 10 at 0046, MARS net designator 4IX7, and
some Airforce-type calls like AFZ4W#. No sign of R. Roraima, Boa
Vista, 4875 supposedly on till 0300, nor anytime lately (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-LSB, Oct 10 at 0039, 2-way in Brazilian, while I am
not hearing any N American pirates on the Saturday night band (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7620, Oct 100 at 0618, surprise mixture of talk show
about Medicare, and weaker audio sounds like Brother Scare; shortly
cuts off by itself. Smax of mixing product between SW and local MW,
but can`t figure out how nor ever heard before here (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18241.4-USB approx., Oct 10 at 1416, JBA 2-way not
English, maybe Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALASKA. 9760 & 9800, Oct 9 at 1500, KNLS IS on both with equivalent
fair sigs, but two different languages scheduled, Chinese and Russian,
respectively. SOP to run IS first minute of each hour before
programming from :01 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat Oct 9 at 1510+, no signal from
LRA36 checked on three different Brazilian SDRs (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, Oct 9 at 1459 big open carrier and off*, must be RHC as
scheduled 1100-1500 & 2100-0500 in Aoki which this time has correct
RHC info while EiBi misses 9710 completely, which has been running
most or all of A-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. Correxion: starts with RPI of course, not typo RFI; fixed:

6330-CW, Oct 8 at 2013, CW beacon from R. Piraña Internacional;
repeating message starts with RPI but I don`t copy the rest. I wonder
if he spells out Piraña with the special character --.-- for ñ? Well
audible via UTwente with some deep fading. Jorge R. García tells the
WOR iog that it`s 8 watts from northern Europe, active today 1900-0700
UT and also same hours this Saturday into UT Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, Sat Oct 9 at 0559, RNZ/I/P still on here and
keeps going past 0600 timesignal and at final check 0617 music at
S9-S5. So much for my plug of `Saturday Night` request show from 0608,
which has been on VG 11725, supposed to start at 0459 or is it 0559,
as current sked still shows two *other* frequencies after 0559!

``02:59-04:58 13840 Pacific Daily
04:59 - 06:58 11725 Pacific Daily
05:59 - 12:58 7245 Pacific Sat Sun``

Unknown when if ever it switched to 11725; or skipped it completely
for 7245 sometime? Asleep as the switch? Or another too-frequent
skedchange, as summer oncomes, trying to cope with OWF to primary
Pacific targets, not us? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5950, Sat Oct 9 at 2200-2300, `Encore` classical
music via WRMI, VG via remote in southeastern US -- a regular listen I
don`t always log, this first airing to N America, and there will be
two more tonight and Sunday night. Two playlists are available; look
for the current date:
https://www.tumbril.co.uk/playlists
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 365-MCW kHz, Oct 9 at 0615 UT, ND beacon AA, which is 100
watts from Fargo / Harwood, North Dakota; only unusual but not new one
here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday October 9 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S5-S7 direct.

Not confirmed Sat Oct 9 circa 1930 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, as it is

** CUBA. 6000, Oct 8 at 0233, RHC English S9+20 but suptorted: wiggle
that patchcord! Alleged Cuban scientist denies there is any evidence
for ``Havana Syndrome`` sonic attacks there or elsewhere. // 6165 is
VG but somewhat overmodulated/distorted. Now if only they could
balance them out. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EUROPE. 6330-CW, Oct 8 at 2013, CW beacon from R. Piraña
Internacional; repeating message starts with RFI but I don`t copy the
rest. I wonder if he spells out Piraña with the special character
--.-- for ñ? Well audible via UTwente with some deep fading. Jorge R.
García tells the WOR iog that it`s 8 watts from northern Europe,
active today 1900-0700 UT and also same hours this Saturday into UT
Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Oct 8 at 2259, scales up and down at first
on keyboard, jazzed-up classical tunes, 2302 another, direct. Next
check at 2327 via remote in MO, no signal, but Maryland has some
non-classical music, poor signal. Another report at first as unID:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87438.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6931-USB, Oct 8 at 2329, S7-S9 pirate music, into
Maryland SDR; 2338 brief ID? missed and ballad. Several logs here say
it`s Tall Radio Jethro (Tull):
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87441.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11670, Fri Oct 8 at 2229, REE wrapping up token English with
Justin Coe voice recognizable but VP unreadable --- and this is the
best, being lowest, as the MUF to deep N America has plunged, despite
being on the worst azimuth south toward Africa; while 11940, 15520 and
supposedly for us 17855 are even worse, JBA to JBA carriers. We
anticipate a B-21 switch to much more propagable 9690 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring: confirmed first
airings UT Friday October 8 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG, 7780 fair.

Also confirmed Fri Oct 8 at 0330 on WRMI 5985, S7/9+10 into Bonaire.

Also confirmed Fri Oct 8 at 1815 on IRRS via AM Italia, Villa Estense,
918 kHz, S9, as always interrupting some talk show, about NZ? Pause.
Quick IRRS ID, long pause and WOR starts and plays to 1844. As
monitored via Noale SDR

Also confirmed Fri Oct 8 at 1816 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria. As usual,
S9+5/10 open carrier runs past 1815, modulation does not cut on WOR
until opening is almost over. Is no one paying attention? Also to
1844. Via UTwente it`s about 3 seconds apart from 918.

Also confirmed Fri Oct 8 at 2030 on 918 after music and extended IRRS
ID, S9, as above.

** U S A. 5850, Fri Oct 8 at 1045 I happen to awaken so confirm that
WRMI is on this air, `Frecuencia al Día` segment in strangely-accented
Spanish. So maybe WOR will be back on Wednesday at this hour (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 9975, Oct 8 at 0226, JBA carrier from presumed
KVOH which normally blasts into here. Then I check other 31m band
signals and find other USAs are also VP; or JBACs even from WRMI 9955,
9455, 9395; maybe 9330 WBCQ.

But Eurosigs much further away are VG: 9420 Greece S9/+10; 9490
República/France S9/+10 and no jamming audible. Close-in MUF must be
sharp between 8 and 9 MHz; because N Americans below 8 remain VG: 7850
CHU; WRMIs 7780 S9+20; 7730 & 7570 S9+30/40 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Oct 9 at 0000, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW`,
again very overmodulated/distorted. ``Hide the silverware``, hmmm, is
this a rerun? A & A are yelling over each other with usual
anti-American rants. I switch the Maryland SDR to this from the real
pirate band, where sound is a bit less distorted but also with
RHC-like humbuzz. They start talking about spotted dicks, drinking
teguila, on 7490, 6160 and 4790 preferably in meaningless
``kilocycles`` instead of kHz; what`s wrong with Canada? I can`t take
another hour of this broadcasting, distorted in more ways than one. So
here`s John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan half
undressed in a hot studio in a warm Fla. Allan and Angela bantering
back and forth about several subjects which sort of morphed into some
blather about "community" and how the definition has changed over the
years and how Covid accelerated the change. A mention of the stolen
election by Angela. Even some talk of worldwide shortages of things
and some China bashing.

Allan announced that the superstation was up and running well but
before he could finish that there was a phone call at 0031 from Mr.
Mike to talk about the upcoming Nearfest next weekend. Allan then
reads an article from Radio World about shortwave tech that I think
he's read before.

Reading of emails at 0055. Closing prayer at 0058. It was mentioned
that they'd had many small problems with the new transmitter since
replacing the big tube and was implied that one of the repairmen was
still at the station tinkering with things. Off the air at 0100. John,
Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

somewhat distorted S8-S9, Maryland SDR in SAM mode shows carrier

** U S A. Stephen Luce, Houston TX, replies to my 1310 KZIP log:

``Glenn, about KZIP: Yes the transmitter tower is right next to I-40
just east of Hope Road, and easy to see when driving by. Built in
1978, the tower is also used by what is now KPRF 98.7 which originally
signed on that year. Both the AM and FM were co-owned in the late 70's
when 1310 was a Country Music station, and 98.7 was Album Rock KYTX (I
lived in Amarillo at the time and recall hearing the original
transmitter tests for 98.7 during the early morning hours while
driving to work.) KZIP was sold around 1981 flipping to a Spanish
language format, while 98.7 has had several owners, call signs, and
formats over the years.

Only things even vaguely resembling a valley in the Amarillo area
would be either Palo Duro Canyon or Lake Meredith, unlikely origins of
the ownership name. The Texas Panhandle is not completely flat, if you
take the time to explore it. Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas`` Yes, Palo
Duro is quite scenic, a minature Grand (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

for ordering info]. Official FCC sunset for KZIP in October was 0015
UT, so I had it with 88 watts? November: 2345 UT. As so often,
radio-locator.com info is outdated as ``Radio Caliente``. FCC shows
licensee is Christian Ministries of the Valley, Inc. What valley? Not
AMA. Coverage map at r-l shows site is slightly due west of Amarillo;
probably visible along I-40 near Cadillac Ranch (Glenn Hauser, OK,

widely varying rates; (3) more than two (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13815, Oct 5 at 2321, surprised to find a VG S9 signal
direct to here with ME music, Arabic W&M chat, brief Qur`an, chanting
for several minutes could be secular; 2333 ``Idha`at ---`` which would
be an ID but could not copy it. Starting to fade down. Recheck Oct 6
at 0022, no signal to remotes in Europe, E N America, N S America.
Only 13815 entry in EiBi, Aoki and HFCC is 1800-1900, Algeria via
France in Arabic and French. Of course that is normally completely off
the air before 2300. What is it?? Sounds like a major station (Glenn

** CUBA. 13740, Oct 4 at 1434, RHC Spanish overmodulated & distorted,
splashing about 12 kHz above and below. // 13700 is better and still
spurless. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Some mild tropo over OK & KS October 4 morning
1516-1530+ UT, besides several more BAD signals on RF 11, 10, 8:

RF 14, KOCY DTV, virtual PSIP as 48-3. Why not 48-1? My first
confirmation of this, while KOCY OKC with Estrella TV continues as
part of the RF 29 KTUZ cluster along with two other supposedly
competing Spanish networx, each with totally different virtual
channels. W9WI.com lists only two different CPs for this -LP on 14, 15
kW and 7.5 kW.

RF 20, no IDs on the PSIP, but Broken Arrow ad = Tulsa suburb.
Otherwise displays as KQCW-HD 19-1.

RF 36 shows as DTV 17-5 but no call! Got to be KDOR-TV Bartlesville,
the TBN station, but in W9WI.com lists with only 4 virtual 17s and
their fifth sub supposedly being 18.5 with Positiv. Did not find what
program source is really on this. One megawatt.

RF 34, 41-1 KMYT-TV. 812.5 kW from Tulsa with of course MyTV on main.

RF 28, 44-1 ION. KTPX-TV, 1 megawatt, CoL Okmulgee = Tulsa market. Six
channels, four of which are shoppers, 44-3 = IONPlus; two of the
others are not 44+ virtually.

RF 22, 22-1 KTOU-LD, 15 kW from OKC. Has an APP for only 9.8 kW,
unknown location. Invisible here without tropo.

RF 12, 12-3 but then leads to 33-3 Antenna. Confusing situation. The
RF 12 in OK is KGEB ``53`` but not listed with Antenna network. Must
really be KSCW-DT, Wichita KS, which is only 15 kW, but in W9WI.com by
channel its virtual channels are ``36.`` not 33! A mistake, or
out-of-date info? The other subs match up: 33-4 Start TV, 33-2
Decades, 33-1 KSCW-DT in local news, and weather with 12 logo in UL
corner of screen. W9WI.com by state does show virtual 33 not 36. But
there is *another* KSCW-DT on RF 12 with 66.4 kW AND virtual 12.
Callsign of both KSCW-DT, but RF 33 is licensed as an LD, while RF 12
is LIC as DT. Is one of them really in Hutch, the other in Wich? NO,
same geo coords for both in W9WI.oom.

Again the only RF channel I am really getting is 12. 33 would be
blocked by KOCB ``34`` OKC, and I already had something else as above
on RF 36!

CBS for Wichita market was originally KTVH ch A12 Hutchinson, but its
successor KWCH Hutchinson is now W9WI.com-listed both RF and virtual
as channel 19 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.90 approx., Oct 4 at 0610, surprised to find WBCQ on
air at this late hour, not even for TOMBS as on 6160- & 4790-, but
S9/+10 of rock music, 0611 Radio Newyork International singing ID,
0616 Allen Sane ID, taking a ``live`` call. Maybe some kind of test.
Wolfgang Bueschel, Germany, logged this shortly later, via a remote?
not specified: ``7489.904 poor string, empty, likely EXCITER string
outlet only, at 0629 UT. 73 wb df5sx wwdxc topnews``. It was certainly
full-power when I heard it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 4 at 0139 check, no signal from WLCR/WBCQ; after
an absence, I had heard strong open carrier only 7 hours earlier, and
after that several others reported same intermittently; meanwhile the
WLCR relays via other sites were also absent. Still no 9330 signal at
2348 October 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Oct 4 at 2300, WBCQ with first half of `UBMP` I
missed 25 hours earlier, this time good music from Brunei. Who
remembers like I do, without looking it up, the last/only SW frequency
from there? Maryland remote SAS shows minus 95 Hz = 7489.905 at
S9+10/20. I am listening via that since own webcast is still distorted
into the red. Chopped off at 2330 for ID and ad for St. Jude`s, before
`Camp Constitution Radio` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN. 11539.90, Oct 4 at 1456, JBA talk. EiBi shows Voice of
Wilderness, for Korea North on ``11540``. Typical offfrequenciness by
Tashkent site. Per WRTH, VOW is produced in S Korea by Cornerstone
Ministries based in California (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Oct 4 at 0108, YL with marine weather in French,
forecasts for lundi, mercredi, jeudi, etc. DXinfocentre.com says at
this hour it would be VCO Sydney NS starting at 0040, 550 watts
bilingual. Next would be Yarmouth from 0140 and Halifax 0240.

First logs of these for the season vs the summer/storm noise level.

2598-USB, Oct 4 at 0109, YL with marine weather in English, always
weaker than 2749s, S3 to S2.5 close to the noise level. Starting at
0107 is VCM, 600 watts from St. Anthony which is on The Rock, but
listed with (LABRADOR); not sure what that means, transmitter one
place, source and or info about the other? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CARIBBEAN NETHERLANDS. 800, Oct 4 at 0155, Spanish in the mix on
E/W loop despite KQCV OKC and CKLW Windsor. TWR a.k.a. BONAIRE is SS
at 0000-0500 for Cuba and Caribbean, so a favorable azimuth for us. MW
News Oct has an article explaining why despite a 440 kW transmitter,
PJB is no longer easily into Europe, but best chance when for Carib in
general (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 590, Oct 4 at 0053, classical music, got to be CMBF, Radio
Musical Nacional, 25 kW from La Julia, Mayabeque near Habana. Only one
other CM on 590, a Rebelde in far Guantánamo. Best by far on my E/W
loop, buried on the N/S shortwire. Why can`t I hear a single US
station classical on AM? ¡Viva la revolución! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4747 approx., Oct 4 at 0124, scratchy S7 spur out of 4765
Radio Progreso, which is S9+35 and distorted, QRMing CODAR; the
cadence of the spur matches the music on 4765. Matched by another
about 4783; full range each covers: approx. 4744-4748 & 4778-4785.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Oct 4 at 0134, RHC in wrong language, Spanish not
English and // 5040; while 6000 is not // in music presumably correct
English service.

11670 & 11760, UT Mon Oct 4 at 0142, RHC `En Contacto` DX program in
progress, about a transponder change at the ISS, but these two
frequencies are suptorted, S3-S6. 11850 is not only suptorted but just
barely modulated as she is apparently citing the times for this show
but like last week I am not paying close attention beyond hearing
``0235`` which would be wrong instead of 0135. Elsewhere: 9710 with
heavy CCI from China; 9535 weaker but clearer.

13740, Oct 4 at 0144 another Spanish frequency check, sometimes on,
sometimes not, but now it`s in ENGLISH! Apparently crossed up with
6165 in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924-USB, Oct 4 at 0106, hard rock at S9. 0137 still
going but off by 0149 check. A few logs here say Two Dog Radio:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6876-USB, Oct 4 at 0107, guitar music S9; 0122 DJ
with Brit accent says ``Best Smooth Jazz``. 0137 still going. 0150
still VG with jazz piano; 0153 Brit chat spells out LUCAS, ``Smooth
Jazz`` as if name of ``station`` if not programme. 0201 Smooth Jazz
dedication to some YL for birthday? We hear a few words from her.
Accents are so heavy, hard for me to understand despite VG reception,
S9+10. Mentions bestsmoothjazz.com and rescued cats.

That website exists in London, England, with TV show of Oct 2, this
one? And promo next one of Oct 14.

These say 6876 is really Mix Radio International, starting at 2133 Oct
2 on 6866, and move to 6876 at 2226:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87233.0.html
Hardly anybody cites ``Best Smooth Jazz``, but MRI says after a
comment:

``Quote from: dave524 on Today at 01:53 --- For the wide signal I've
found the Digital mode in SDRUno with the 12K width gives the best
sound, great sounding show as usual``

``That`s great because our transmitter is optimized for wideband SDR
for best sound. At the same time we will sound good on any radio that
is on frequency with our GPS. Thank you for your posts and especially
tuning into MRI tonight. Logged Mix`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Oct 4 at 0149, weak music S3-S4 with
fadeouts. Much weaker than the others. Was not hearing this while 6924
was on. These say it`s Radio 48:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87248.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1020, UT Mon Oct 4 at 0056, ``Born Too Late`` pop music
on near-local signal: got to be KOKP Perry, one of `Triple Play Sports
Radio` breaking main format. Past 0101, ``gotta get out of here, The
Old Stillwater Jukebox``, back next Sunday, ``Good night, Oklahoma,
Tom Dirato``, 0103 to dead air, JBA talk, CCI? No, gradual fadeup of
Patriot Radio Network, I suppose sports rather than political. So what
time does the Jukebox start??? He doesn`t say and the website does not
either, but has a rotating display on homepage:
http://tripleplaysportsradio.com/
I confirmed this // 105.1 KOSB Perry, local quality but not audible on
1580 KOKB Blackwell which is VG daytime, but now should be 49 watts. I
never hear either of these FMs on website: ``now 5-deep with 93.1
Stillwater, 93.3 Ponca City``. Presumably translators, but why do they
need one in S-W? Maybe separately programmed when games pile up,
triple-play not enough. KOKP 24h is plenty to ruin reception of
Roswell, Pittsburgh or anything else on 1020 (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** U S A. 3390.5-USB, Oct 4 at 0113 UT, NF01FB, fonetikaly more than
once, ``regional net has closed``; MARS? Have not heard a call of such
a format before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3819-USB, Oct 4 at 0115, the non-LSB hams again in technical
discussions, and this time I copy some calls: K5MXJ interjecting,
AA5KG, two of them talking over each other for a minute. QRZ.com
shows: K5MXJ, Kenneth M Jones, Jr, Houston, TX 77075;
AA5KG, ALAN C PETERSON, Pueblo West, CO 81007 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4095.65, Oct 4 at 0120, whoops and CW ID as DW, JBA vs S5
noise level, so Desert Whooper, no sign of any voice now. DW replied
to my last report:

``Hello Glenn! Thanks for you great HF listings! That is a very
interesting intercept! Definitely not any voice transmissions coming
from DW. What was your receive location and receiver bandwidth? There
is an ITU channel 401 on 4095 KHz for ships to transmit on. Maybe you
were hearing a ship plus DW whoops in your receiver??``

To which I replied:

``Enid OK. Not sure of the bandwidth, on the R75 but normal USB tuning
in 1-kHz steps landing right on 4095 where the SSB sounded normal.
Maybe ship, but seemed coordinated with the whoops and voicing the
kind of info which would otherwise be sent in CW. Wish I could have
heard it longer and better. Also, I did not detect any CW during this
log. While the voice was on 4095.00, I can`t be sure of the whooper
frequency, hard to pin down by its nature without a carrier but also
heard tuned to 4095.00`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6993, Oct 4 at 0104, at least two JBA carriers beating, I
have been noticing lately; logged several times before, but I should
do so at least once a year, cf. this from *2017* ---

``6993, Sept 10 at 0002, JBA carrier as almost always audible from
presumed WH2XWF, experimental 164-watt transmitters with several
locations in Florida, to study ionospheric disturbances, never IDing,
nothing but dead air. We`ll see if this gets blown or flooded off.

6993, Sept 12 at 0133, no JBA carrier from presumed WH2XWF, the
Florida ionospheric study transmitters, so maybe Irma-caused. But Sept
13 at 0200 the JBA carrier is reaudible. No pirates (Glenn Hauser, OK,

1859 Arabish announcement with contact info including .com, not

Sama via Woofferton, while Aoki calls it IBRA Media/Radio Sama. So
which is it? Radio Sama is not in the cross-reference page 524 of WRTH
2021. This transmission on a B-20 frequency appears on page 496 under
SWEDEN: IBRA Media with no mention of Sama. Maybe it`s just a program,
not a ``station``. FEBA refers to India and Pakistan, not Seychelles!
but of course no Arabic or Sama there. BTW, the only ``International``
entry under PAK. The only SW entry in ``National`` sexion is 7265,
Azad Kashmit Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Sunday October 3 ending at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+20 direct

Also confirmed Sunday October 3 at 1255 on NEW 1230 broadcast by WMRI
Europe via Channel 292, GERMANY, 9670, S6-S8 into UTwente, atop CCI
music. Normally I want to sleep an hour later, but good thing I
alarmed myself since no one has replied to my explicit request for
monitoring of this! 1259 music comes up, ``Piece of the Axion``, past
hourtop, 1302 roboYL ``Dex Carter`` ``playing favorite songs until
1400``. While this music is running, I can`t hear QRMusic which may
have stopped; I hope WMRI itself was not underlaying WOR with music.
It so happens that the time for us coincides with that Vietnamese
clandestine transmitted from Taiwan at 1230-1300 on 9670; EiBi says
there is noise jamming too but I don`t hear that. WMRI`s entire
experimental broadcast runs 1200-1600 Sundays; and Channel 292
schedule shows it`s direxional on two letters toward North America;
they now display this with a proper great circle map. But it was not
audible into Maine SDR on this day path, let alone to OK. Channel 292
transmits from Rohrbach in SE Germany, Bavaria near Ingolstadt, east
of Stuttgart, between Nürnberg and München; only 520 km = 323 statute
miles from UTwente SDR at Entschede, Netherlands; but evidently not

04:59 - 06:58 11725 Pacific Daily
05:59 - 12:58 7245 Pacific Sat Sun
06:59 - 08:58 7245 Pacific Mon - Fri
as if on both frequencies Sat & Sun at 0559-0658! They do have two
transmitters but never? run both at once.

As for the programme, another contradixion, for October 2:
``8:08 PM. Saturday Night
Saturday nights on RNZ National is where Paul Brennan plays the songs
YOU want to hear. All music from 7 till midnight (RNZ)``
Obviously it really starts at 0608 UT, since a week ago, NZ started
imagining the local time zone be 13 hours ahead. This is rather too
late even for me in the ``CDT`` of UT -5, but we shall ``gain`` an
hour from November to make it appear just after local midnight and
only hope there will still be a VG L&C frequency in B-21. If you are
up late on our ``Friday night``, go hear this.

https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/saturdaynight
The programme page dated October 2 has playlists for each hour but not
exact times. What I heard amid the first hour was:
Winifred Atwell - Black And White Rag

Extraterritorial listeners might not be refused since it is on SW:
``Saturday Night --- Your requests, nostalgia and musical memories.
Saturday evening from 7pm - Midnight

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2106 monitoring: confirmed after
1600 UT Sat Oct 2 on WRN North American service webcast.

Also confirmed Sat Oct 2 at 1952 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 17
minutes into so started circa 1935. Occasional lite crashes from
storms in MO & IL, but not right over Wentzville.

Also heard at 2353 Sat Oct 2 on WRMI 5950, which I had left running
via GA/TN remotes after Wavescan until 2330 when WOR must have started
at a new unknown time; but it now shows on the System L schedule ---
and another new one on me, Friday at 2230! as well as Sunday 2230, all
on 5950.

[Following at 0000 UT Sun Oct 3 on 5950: TRSW with Europirate R.

else? The silly DJ whose favorite expletive is ``bay-beh``, calls out
to American listeners.]

** U S A. 9950 & 9960, Oct 2 at 0626, once again WRMI audible on
parasitic spurs 5 kHz above and below 9955, which is S9+20/30, during
TOMBS with a trace of that modulation on 9960 and less so on 9950.

4975 & 4985, soon checked too Oct 2 at 0646, the same type of spurring
out of 4980 which is also S9+20/30, the upper one a JBA carrier, and
hardly any modulation on the lower. So far the only two WRMI
transmitters detected this way, adjacent #3 and #4 which are both on
160 degree antenna(s) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Oct 3 at 0009, WTWW-2 already in TOUTA via
webcast. Slightly distorted but at least it`s in $tereo unlike SW, and
there is nothing like an organ that needs $tereo! Topic is ``ladies
day``, i.e. female organistes. Ends at 0030, so now supposed to start
at 0000? Don`t count on it. I take off my phones but don`t stop the
player; at 0039 I hear traces of TO --- yes, more such music, not
played by ladies, but totally George Wright, i.e. a masculine person.
Must be running two episodes in a row, ends at 0100; what next? (Glenn

with flutter. End of Urdu semihour via Moosbrunn. BTW, previous block
at 1330 on 15440 is Thai via Tajikistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 346-MCW kHz, Oct 1 at 0635 UT, ND beacon dash and YXL,
which is 500 watts from Sioux Lookout, Ontario. JJBBAA vs storm and
other noise level. Only other Canadian at similar low level is
332-MCW, 1000-watt dash and QT, Thunder Bay ON, as always mixing with

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2106 monitoring: confirmed UT
Friday October 1 at 0330 on WRMI 5985, S9/+10 into Bonaire SDR, with
some reverby sound not on the original.

Next airing is supposed to be Friday Oct 1 at 1815 on IRRS SW 7290 via
Bulgaria, and on AM Italia 918 kHz. EVERYTHING went wrong;

7290 via UTwente: 1814 carrier seems on, S8/9+10 but no modulation.
After 1815 joins WOR intro in progress but only for a few seconds.
This keeps happening about once a minute for a few seconds each! To
make matters worse, the last few times there is also audio from some
other program mixing at equal level. Till I give up listening at 1823.
I don`t need this needless frustration.

918 kHz via Noale remote: no WOR at all; music and occasional canned
IDs in English, timechex in Italian. Scheduled to play again on 918 at
2030 UT, but I`m away; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Sat Oct 2 at 0130 on WRMI 9395: VP with jamming-like
pulsing into Maryland SDR, but VG S9+10/20 clear into Missouri. Next:

** U S A. 9955, via BST-1 caradio, Fri Oct 1 at 2139 during VORW on
WRMI, reply to a listener, Josiah in Grass Valley, California who is
about to move to Kansas and hopes he can still hear VORW. Josiah in
CA? Could it be the YHWH guy? Odds against.

I was setting up to hear the following program, `Satanic Shortwave` at
2200-2230 on 9955, but too busy until it was just ending at 2228;
confirmed anyway. I may hear a recording. Same program is to repeat in
two weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6160 minus 52 Hz on Maryland SDR = 6159.948, Fri Oct 1 at
2353, I`m home just in time to hear another new SW show ending,
`Cruisin Radio` via WBCQ. This will be weekly at 2300 Fridays for at
least a bimonth. No way I could have heard this signal on the caradio.
I also compare to Area 51 webcast of WBCQ, which is NOT carrying this
but some other music. That`s understandable, as Cruisin` replaces Area
61 oldtimeradio programming. Yet both 6160- and webcast do join for
`AAAWWW` which follows (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (6160-), UT Sat Oct 2 from 0000, ``Area 51`` webcast with
`AAAWWW` on WBCQ: for entire hour it`s overmodulating in the red, as A
& A yell over each other. Please! quit yelling and/or turn down the
pot so the old analog VU meter stays out of the red. Aside from all
the ranting, it`s painful to try to listen to. First topic is about
how they have been interviewed about pirate radio in the old days by
the TV show `Inside Edition`. Since it`s syndicated, no telling when
this will go on the air; maybe A&A will notify us. Angela says
``people just don`t get it`` -- what Free Speech is all about. Unlike
previous week, takes several callers. 0015 first one says he is
quitting something; talk about antennas; Canadian border blocked. 0021
Rabishu calls from Colorado. Has been monitoring ham nets a lot, such
as Davidlist net from RSA at 02 Z daily. Frequencies vary but are
shown at 7156list.com, where one may also register for contact. Has
been going since December 2009; 0024 Rabishu says he may be
interviewing gh and would like to put it on WBCQ website along with
one he did years ago with Marion of the Attic. Says his Satanic SW
aired on WRMI this evening. Allan says he should try to get gh to
laugh (I fear my humor may be too subtle for some, not laughing out
loud on the air.) 0026 datestamp as 1 October YOOLF 2021. 0027 another
caller re Free Speech. Angela boycotts Land O`Lakes over removing
Indian mascot. 0031 Allan rails against income tax again. Goes over
several other programs WBCQ airs. WBCQ could not exist in Canada
because ``Canada doesn`t license private shortwave broadcasters`` ---
o yeah? What about CFRX, CFVP?

At 0050 he finally reveals what WBCQ stands for, N.B.! ---
``WEINER BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS QUINTESSENTIAL`` --- now we know.

Asks for emails and replies a few; 0054 several items from Free Radio
Weekly just in, but not including what Angela would like, ``Big Balls
Broadcasting``. Was there a prayer? If so I missed it. John Carver`s
version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan and
Angela in a hot studio in hot Fla and both of them half naked. Allan
said that both he and Angela had been interviewed by Inside Edition
concerning pirate radio. Some talk about the interview and the origins
of WBCQ. Phone call at 0015 with a bit of antenna information. Another
phone call followed immediately from a long time listener who wants to
put a program on the station. Phone call at 0027 about free speech.
Allan then stated that some of the programmers of the station had been
interviewed and intimidated by the FBI. Allan said it was a
persecution of free speech. Then a small political rant followed by a
speech about the importance of free speech and how we could support
it. Then a small rant about the IRS. He goes through the program list
for the station naming the programs that he thinks are really good and
laments the number of open slots in the schedule and offers special
rates for pirates and free radio producers. Partial reading of the new
Free Radio Weekly at 0054 and then into emails. Closing prayer at 0059
and off the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** BRAZIL [and non]. 9665.993V, Sept 30 at 0628, gospel music at
S6-S9, as RVM is doing well, but almost reaching a full kHz
off-frequency, wobbling audibly, but at one point measured here. Makes
het with a weaker 9665.00, no doubt VOK, which is also into
offfrequenciness but not here, not now. RVM outshines its adjacents,
TOMBS via Channel 292 on 9670, and RRI in Arabic from 0630 on 9660.
EiBi still displays RVM on only 9665.2, Aoki on 9665 and neither will
reveal that it varies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2106)

** CUBA. 6230, Sept 30 at 0619, RHC English at S6-S8. This is a
leapfrog mixing product of 6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz beyond.

6140, Sept 30 at 0620, RHC English is JBA, weaker than 6230; this one
is a leapfrog of 6060 over 6100 another 40 kHz beyond.

Fundamentals from Bauta are plenty strong: 6060 S9/+10; 6100 S9+20;
6165 S9+40. Another possible mix would be 6270, i.e. 6060 over 6165
another 105 kHz beyond, but nothing there, why? Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2106)

** KOREA NORTH. 9445.137, Sept 30 at 0627, JBA talk, language
uncertain but way off frequency. Scheduled on ``9445`` is VOK in
English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2106)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6931-USB, Oct 1 at 0023, S9, live-sounding DJ about
connexions, says there is another unknown just below him but not
QRMing. ``--- Radio`` featuring oldies, gonna relax, have some sweet
wine. 0024 song about angels, Teen Angel? 0030, `Wheels`, ``I love
this song!``. 0034 ``Oldies Radio``. But many more logs here as Goat

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Oct 1 at 0025, another S9 pirate with
raucous rock; 0027 gibberish with bleeps, YL ID sounds like ``WTIC``

UNIDENTIFIED. Reply to my log of hams on 80m in USB instead of LSB,
probably Usanian but could be Canadian:

``Hi, Glenn, Do you suppose that those hams on USB, 3819 kHz, might
have been using ex-military radios that were not capable of
transmitting on LSB (without being modified)? I used to have one of
those, an old AN/PRC-47. Also, some ex-maritime radios are limited to
USB and AM, but can be modified for USB [LSB?]. I guess there is no
way to tell what they were using, unless they actually said so.
Anyway, just a thought! I enjoy your reports. Take care and all the

** MEXICO [non]. Ingeniero Glenn, Sé que no has pedido verificación de
nuestra última emisión. Sin embargo aquí te la envío pues sé que
estuviste escuchándonos; espero de verdad que lo hayas disfrutado.

Te comento, esta idea surgió como una idea personal para honrar al
Perú en su bicentenario de independencia, (yo soy un historiador
especializado en este país andino, enamorado de su cultura e incluso
estuve casado con una de sus mujeres), luego entre Bill Tillford y yo
pensamos hacer algo similar para mi México bello, sólo para
divertirnos.

Pero dado el éxito que hemos tenido seguiremos produciendo programas;
ya tenemos el siguiente en la lista (Aunque WRMI todavía no nos da
fecha de emisión). Aunque no puedo revelarte qué país sigue que el
siguiente país en la lista tiene mucha variedad musical.

También Bill Tillford ha pensado en crear un especial de música
latinoamericana para Año nuevo donde seguro incluiremos a Carlos
Gardel y José Alfredo Jiménez; ya te informaré cuando tenga los
detalles pertinentes. Te abraza tu Oyente de hace mchos años, Luís
Alejandro Vallebueno. Programas "Canto de las Americas"``

Here`s the eQSL:
https://www.w4uvh.net/GlennMX.pdf

or #131 via:
http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html

Uncle Bill responds:

``Thanks for the kind words about México le canta a las Américas. In
the short run, we are discussing a possible Nochevieja Panamericana (a
Pan American NYE special) that would incorporate music from several
different LATAM countries. Doubtful that we'll do another specific
country special this year, but in 2022 who can say? "Uncle Bill"

Wed Sept 29 at 2100 the BST-1 caradio is the only SW I have access to.
Both WRMI 7780 and WBCQ 7490 are in its memory; no direct frequency

and finally after multiple memory scans, each one does, confirming

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Sept 28 at 1738, Trenton Military is on again
but VP S4, Shannon aviation weather (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13645, Sept 28 at 1743 hilife music, S5-S8. It`s the
CRI Swahili service via MALI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Sept 28 at 1507, tune-in via UTwente to
another weekly Tuesday Kashmir Civitas via IRRS via ROMANIA: S9/+15 in
presumed Urdu, but 1511 abruptly shift to jive music in English!, more
rock, and from 1519 discussion about the Tiananmen Square massacre in
Beijing, interview with a Chinese-American author, Terence Cheng, of a
novel about it, notably the brave anti-tank protester; with music
background until chopped off at 1529* without any RRI IS this time.
Was K.C. really only 11 minutes long this week? Or playback failed and
default to fill material? IRRS webcast is continuous, much of it with
no specific programming but unknown stuff pulled from the web, often
fragmented (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 15720, Sept 29 at 0040, RNZ confirmed on reactivated
frequency but not its true span, VP to the ear but peaking S8-S9 to my
generous meter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Sept 28 at 2155, REE non-English is still somewhat
distorted, but loud & clear on // 17855 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWEDEN [non]. 15260, Sept 28 at 1737, S7-S9, YL talk in language
unseems Arabish but listed as Arabic from Radio Sama = IBRA Radio, via
Woofferton UK this hour daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 28 at 2152, VOT IS & English ID loop, so looks
good for today unlike absence yesterday, S9/+25 direct and no RTTY
audible in AM --- but detectable in USB, not LSB. Oh2, 2157.6* dumps
off the air; but back on by 2159. Did it remain the whole hour? About
halfway in, it had become JBA on the portable with clipon (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5896.5-USB, Sept 29 at 0045, some weak unreadable 2-way
phone, then mostly beepery until at least 0100. Fortunately there are
no broadcasters nearby but surely will be later. Wonder if NTIA
coördinate this `OOB` area for US broadcasters giving priority to
government/military comms. Last logged May 13, 2020 as MARS net:
http://www.w4uvh.net/ghlogs_2020_0507_0514.txt
which concludes with: ``This is a SHARES net frequency as explained
with my first log July 27, 2016 at the same time
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1630.txt
and there have been several since`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17530, Sept 28 at 1740, VOA discussing need to vaccinate
animals, against rabies, S9/+20 --- a reminder that this 1700-1830
sesquihour is the only time we can hear VOA well in English from
Grimesland - unless too close in the skip zone.

17530 is extensively used for other VOA languages: French, Somali,
Kinyarwanda, Swahili; and sites: Botswana, Vatican violating
Separation of Church and State, São Tomé e Príncipe, Ascension. Can
you mix and match them without uplooking? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
