** BRAZIL. 4925, Follow-ups to my log of presumed Tefé, from
Lúcio Otávio Bobrówiec to the WOR iogroup:

4925, Unid. (much probably R. Educação Rural, Brasil Tefé, AM) 26/11,
0000–0052 relaying R. Bandeirantes de São Paulo, which was covering a
footbal soccer match (Corinthians X Curitiba). Poor, best signal at
0045; around 0052 abrupt sign off (LOB).

4925, Unid. (much probably R. Educação Rural, Brasil Tefé, AM) 28/11,
2340–2350 music, male talks. Very poor, slight improvement over time

4925, Unid. (much probably R. Educação Rural, Brasil Tefé, AM) 29/11,
0034–0042 female talks, short music, male talks, slow pop music. Very
poor, some improvement over listening (LOB).

4925, Unid. (much probably R. Educação Rural, Brasil Tefé, AM) 29/11,
0059–0104 female talks, music. Trying to catch a ToH ID but
deteriorated significantly (LOB).

It is worth mentioning that some het was heard at a certain time that
I did not register on 4925 listenings (LOB). Tecsun PL310et, Wire 14m,
dipole 18m, Embu SP Brasil`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 218-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0640 UT, dash and RL, 980-watt ND
beacon from Red Lake, Ontario. Tuning upward, the first one heard.
BTW, I *never* hear even a JBA carrier on Euro LWBC frequencies. Of
course, would have a better chance earlier from before sunset.

223-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0641 UT, dash and YYW, 1000 watts from
Armstrong, Ontario. BTW, notes that the other
Canadian on 223, YKA, 500 watts in Kamloops BC is ``to be
decommissioned 2021-02-25`` among 18 others on the list --- so hurry
up and DX them.

335-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0652, dash and YLD, 500-watt NDB from Chapleau,
Ontario, not on the de-com list. BTW, the dashes only from Canadians
make the correct frequency clear, while the Americans may be best
audible 1, 2 or even 3 kHz displaced (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 11550, Nov 29 at 1554, Korean, the first
voice sounding synthetic; RFA via SAIPAN at 1500-1900. Unseems
off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 245-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0643, NDB HS, but no such call listed
--- presumably really FS, Sioux Falls - Rock SD, commonly heard 400
watts, and either miskeyed with a dot instead of a dash, or misheard.

257-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0650 UT, NDB JYR, which is 25 watts at York,
Nebraska, Eclipse Central.

338-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0653 UT, NDB UMP, which is 25 watts at
Indianapolis - Metropolitan, Indiana; also some unreadable CCI as I
was tuned to 337-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 475-MCW kHz, Nov 29 at 0715, WWW marker from WA4SZE, the
very slow Morse code beacon in Manchester TN operated by Dave Frantz
at the WWRB SW site & airstrip. I tune past here every night and first
time logged since October 11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Reply from Texas Radio Shortwave to my latest log:

``Ahoy Glenn - Alas TRSW may have to drop its pirate theme now that
we've gone (sorta) mainstream. We guess that Cap'n Ric and the rest of
Crew will just drift off (pirate humor!) and not be heard from again.

With the very limited number of listeners to US pirate stations
compared to those of international broadcasters like Channel 292,
WRMI, and WBCQ, we've learned where our carefully collated music is
most appreciated. Like international broadcasters, we want listeners
not just QSL collectors. Cap'n Ric can't recall the number of times he
heard Ian McFarland, Jonathan Marks, Jeff White, and others say this
at ANARC conferences and on the air. Now he knows what they meant.

Thanks for your report of our anniversary broadcast via WRMI. It's
correct so here's your eQSL. You didn't report on our broadcast a year
ago so you may be interested to know that the small image is the
original eQSL we sent out.

We look forward to hearing from you when we broadcast our
pre-Christmas and Christmas music programs via Channel 292, WRMI, and
WBCQ. We appreciate any publicity you can give to those shows as we
get closer to the dates.

73 and Arrgghh. Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then
always be a pirate.
