** ALGERIA [non]. 9620, May 11 at 0618, RTA via FRANCE with Qur`an and
self-QRM beepery (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15730, May 10 at 2233, RHC confirmed Sunday-only Esperanto,
the only one of three still at correct announced time; VG signal level
but distorted at Maine SDR, yet inaudible at others in N and S
America. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13439, 13504, 13570, 13634; 13766, 13830, 13896, 13962, 14028
approx., May 11 at 1458, constellation of FM/AM spurblobs out of
13700-AM RHC at roughly 66 kHz intervals; this time the F# tone is
louder than usual; closer ones quite strong & readable in FM mode;
declining to only a trace of the tone at the edges. 13740 is already
off. 13700 is dead air by 1509, but the spurs remain F#. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, May 11 at 1508, China Plus relay is S9+10/20 but
distorted. Did not check in time whether on before 1500. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 10 at 2155, TRT IS already, so prospects good for
English at 2200; no PR RTTY either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9885, May 11 at 0616, VOA French is S9+10, apparently
voicing-over something which sounds like QRM. It`s 0600-0630 M-F, and
good signal this time implies it`s still Grimesland NC, rather than
transferred to a Trans-Atlantic site; even tho it would be the only
transmission between 0400 and 1000 with OCB/RM canceled overnight
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2033 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday May 11 at 0130 on WRMI 7780 good via Alexandria SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon May 11 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, but Alexandria SDR
has crosstalk/QRM, overload from TOM or something on another
frequency; while via Rockport SDR, WOR in the clear.

Also confirmed UT Mon May 11 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5130, VG at a
Rochester SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon May 11 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good via
Rochester.

Also confirmed Mon May 11 at 1801 on IRRS 7290; tune-in via UTwente
SDR at 1756, big carrier already on with splash from 7275 and 7300;
trace of modulation unclear whether CCI or leak from IRRS feed?
1758:45 cuts on mod about a book `Pio Pico` (?) by Roberto Garza,
ending show from radiocurious.org - presumably the IRRS replacement
for War Room Pandemic, not supposed to be on SW; 1800 IRRS ID but not
the one misclaiming 7290 be in CUSB; but still giving postal address
in Milano and Italian phone number 39-02-266-6971 --- aren`t they
axually HQ in Ireland now? And discouraging reports by mail to Italy?
Then three quick headlines from FSN in time for WOR 2033 to start by
1801. Now the splash QRM comes from 7280 & 7300, not avoidable even by
narrowing bandwidth. Also all during WOR there is also a slight warble
on 7290 as if a trace of RTTY or some ute QRM. Cut off my closing
after ``2-0 ---``. Another IRRS ID with Milano P O Box. Altho still
filed as ITALY, WRTH 2020 postal and phone are only for Dublin.

** U S A. 9455, UT Mon May 11 at 0100, WRMI switches abruptly from
Brother HyStairical to classic rock which continues past 0122 segu├ęs,
and NO announcements. This is the time publicized for a new weekly
airing of the monthly Radio Emma Toc from UK; Richard Langley reported
the same thing happened a week ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490.102V, May 11 at 1524, VP S4-S5 carrier, no mod audible;
must be WBCQ typical offset; they have been starting Brother Scare at
1600 altho FCC A-20 does not authorize WBCQ before 1900. But they
might as well take over as soon as WWCR finish 7490 at 1500 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15728.8-USB approx., May 10 at 2145, 2-way in Spanish,
INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
