** CUBA. 9700, Jan 9 at 0722, only RHC channel still on, S9+20 and
undermodulated, as `Ed Newman` plays a clip from the US left-wing
`Democracy Now`, Amy Goodman reporting on migrants dying in the
English channel with no help from France or Britain. How about some
Democracy, now in Cuba? Ha2. I`m barely awake at 0805 so seek weekly
Esperanto which should be running now on one 6 MHz channel like 6100,
but nowhere to be found, not even 9700. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.6, Jan 9 at 2205, again no English signal from R. Cairo
into UTwente. But other transmissions continue:

``Remarkably well modulated signal. Jan. 9 at 1530 UT on 9440 in
Albanian. They CAN get it right if they try. Still the annoying buzz
on this particular transmitter. The other transmitter on 9900 has been
off air Jan. 3 through 8. Either it is undergoing repair or they have
given up. Strange that Albanian should get preference over the other
languages on their sked. Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6929.911 AM, Jan 8 at 2310, JBA S5/S6 pirate music
and talk. These say it`s Pandemic Radio:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950 USB, Jan 9 at 0228 and 0237+, jazz S4/S5 into
Maryland SDR. These logs had Outhouse Radio, but off at 0100*

back on later or something else unreported? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Jan 8 at 2300, VOT English VG S9+35 into
UTwente, news about Kazakhstan. Today`s transmitter is the one with
good modulation and no squeal! Direct at 2312, it`s S8-S9, poor with
flutter, noise.

5959.979, Jan 9 at 0007, The Mighty KBC via Nauen, GERMANY, S9+18/20,
measured here but with ripple SAH, CCI into UTwente, probably not
Turkey bonus German but PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, land of
imperialist ChiCom genocide, per Aoki carrying CNR1 during this
semihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2120 monitoring:: confirmed
Saturday January 8 at 2054.5 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+12 into nearby
SDR, about 23 minutes into so started circa 2032.

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun Jan 9 at 0030-0045, WRMI with `Postcard
Panorama` of poetry and radio-related musings by Tammy Walker. Yes,
it`s a repeat of the original episode one week ago so we may expect a
new one monthly, with further chances to hear it this month on UT Jan
16, 23, 30. Solo `cello classical music filled from 0045, before 0100
Texas Radio SW with songs about Texas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Jan 9 at 0100, WTWW-2 still with hamstuff,
`TOUTA` not yet despite previous weeks starting as much as 10 minutes
earlier. It is running by 0108, but I am mainly listening to `Encore`
classical music on WRMI 5850 which starts punxually at 0100! Heard
last few minutes of TOUTA until chopped abruptly at 0207 to ``CQ`` and
WTWW ID, back to rock music. Bob Heil had plugged listening to webcast
where it`s in stereo, my preference too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, UT Sun Jan 9 at 0025, no signal from WWRB when it
would normally be active weekends only; nor 3360 at 0217 Jan 9, the
new frequency it had been on for a few weeks.

If Dave Frantz died January 2 as reported, it might have still been on
UT Sun Jan 2 but not UT Mon Jan 3. My only check was Jan 3 at 0255
when not on 3360. My last log was: ``3215, Dec 26 at 2328, S9/+25 of
dead air from WWRB; not to be outdone by CUBA, some modulation missing
at Manchester`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, Jan 9 at 0217, WWCR-1 is not off the air; `Musical
Memories` with Martha Garvin hymning at her piano. It seems there will
be no more timesharing 3215 with WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Jan 9 at 1747 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is still dead
air of S9+20; stronger than adjacent Okies on 1120 & 1140 which do
manage to modulate. Also noticed previous night as OC mixing with KWKH
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6114, Jan 9 at 0502, RTTY is rampant again, US Navy
Azores or Italy? Vs JBA carrier on 6115, Nikkei Japan already if not
Congo? It`s 1402 JST but near the shortest day of the year. Congo
supposedly not active where it`s 0602 LST equatorially; but EiBi
suggests variable opening around 0515 UT. No other 6115 stations are
known now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6930.923 AM, Jan 9 at 0234, JBA carrier S5-S6 into
Maryland SDR: no such pirate reported to HFU. K index at 00 was 5,
after G1 storm levels; down to 3 by 03 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
