** CHINA [non]. 9790, April 20 at 0341, CRI English relay via CUBA was
absent when checked several days ago but certainly on now with VG
signal and playing, incredibly, John Denver, ``WV - Country Roads``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, April 20 at 0141, RHC Spanish with humbuzz like heard
after 0500 on 6060; same transmitter likely. Wolfgang Bueschel
describes it April 20: ``6060even RHC Bauta in English \\ 6100 kHz.
TERRIBLE BUZZ tone signal, like a garden fence seen, either sideband
symmetrical 13 x 120 Hertz distance apart tone strings. S=7-8 or
-84dBm fair signal strength only in WeUS and Alberta-CAN. 0641 UT.``

11850, April 20 at 0141, RHC is S9+10 but JBM in Spanish. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, still off, but received this update that they are
working on repairing the transmitter:

``Transmisor de Radio Verdad, Apr 20 at 4:41 AM, Informamos a los
oyentes de Radio Verdad que casi todo este día lunes trabajamos
tratando de reparar el transmisor de Radio Verdad. Logramos hacerle
varias reparaciones importantes, con la ayuda de los Ingenieros Jhaír
Ramírez y Rafael Borthwick de Canadá, pero no logramos sacarlo al aire
todavía. Seguiremos trabajando intensamente hasta lograrlo.
Agradeceremos sus oraciones. Que Dios les bendiga y guarde con buena
salud. Dr. Édgar Amílcar Madrid, Director y Gerente General, Estación
Educativa Evangélica, Radio Verdad`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. Correxion: in this item I should have said
*before* which, not after which --- fixed:

7290, Monday April 19 at 1758, I`m checking IRRS via UTwente SDR to
see how it`s doing in the timeslot from which WOR was bumped to
Saturday. Weak carrier seems to be on, but CNR is still audible past
1802, when I conclude IRRS is not on at all. It does cut on at
*1807:26, before which the new program must have long begun. No
modulation audible until weakly at 1811:06, undermodulated talk. So
the startup situation at this secret site is worse than ever... (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, April 20 at 0148, pirate hard rock music
S5-S8, 0152 DJ talk over music, sounds like ``Yes, I Am Radio`` and
something about country, fake Russian accent. Other logs of it:

Big Badfish Al, Central Pennsylvania: ``I AM RADIO 6933.13 USB 0112
UTC 20 April 2021 « on: Today at 01:15 » SINPO: 24222 - heard mixing
into Sycko Radio. 0112 - I AM RADIO something about wicker basket for
Frank Bali repeated over and over.``

refmo, Northeast Kentucky: ``Re: UNID 6933 USB 2319 UTC 19 Apr 2021
« Reply #7 on: Today at 00:10 »
S5 @ 0010 with something slightly resembling music.
0024 - Shazam says " Mr. Wobble Drop Killa" Ganja White Night
0105 - still the same station?? "We Are" by Thousand Foot Krutch
0109 - OM with Russian accent saying 'here is I am Radio'
0112 - OM again with ' I come to country in wicker basket across
ocean', over a Tool tune``

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-AM, April 20 at 0149, JBA talk S4-S5, probably
the Fox News Channel relay as IDed before; 0220 S7-S9 but only equal
to noise level, undermodulated. 0536 still JBA carrier. Strangely, no
logs now or recently of this in HFU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.9-AM, April 20 at 2217, JBA carrier, smax of a
pirate. Per HFUnderground, R Free Euphoria was on 6925.30 until 2201*;
but yesterday on 6924.9-AM was another unID until 2305* (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re report about the OKC bombing, correxion, it was 26,
not 36 years go (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 20 at 2215, JBA carrier from REE failing to
reach deep N America when it would have been in English if this were
not a day starting with T or S; 15520 slightly better, BA carrier;
11940 S9-S6 would have to serve offside from S America beam (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 20 at 2215, zero signal from VOT English to N
America even tho there is no signal either from the RTTY. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18157.5-USB, April 20 at 1834, W3FF in the ``17-meter
activity group``, and QSYing too check 21283 for 5 minutes. So do I,
and do hear a K4STU calling a W6, nothing more, the OSOB. Nothing yet
on the 10m beacon-band 28.2+ MHz. QRZ.com:

W3FF USA flag USA, BUDD L DRUMMOND, REDDING, CA 96002 USA

I was wondering why he mentioned Redding several times.

``Hello from Northern California --- Budd here. Watch for me almost
every day at 1745 UT on 18157.5 kHz. Free signal reports from Northern
California. At about 1830, we move up to 21280 + or - QRM to promote
activity on 15 Meters. These are the Activity Groups. There is no roll
call. If you hear one of the many stations on frequency, simply break
in with your call sign, and you will be most welcome to see if any of
the dozens of stations on frequency daily can hear you from your
location. WE HAVE CORE STATIONS LISTENING FOR CALLERS.``

UNIDENTIFIED. 1329.030 kHz, April 20 at 0556 UT, almost-1-kHz het
below 1330.0 stations, measured here. Nothing anywhere nearly that low
in mwoffsets. Not, of course, a region 1/3 9-kHz channel. Fades a bit
so unseems local device (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
