** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, August 1 at 1316-1325: none higher than:
12820 VP; 12795 S9-S5 after some dead air; 12210 & 12190 vs CODAR;
11440, 11170, 11150, 11120, 11100, 10920, 10870, 10820 S7-S9, 9215,
9200; at 1333, 6970 VP but same as // 12795 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, August 1 at 1658-1702, no signals from Channel 292
new frequency with 10 kW ND from Rohrbach, which per Ivo`s sked is
supposed to be airing `Encore` classical music at 17-18. I`m checking
both UTwente and another SDR further in Europe, Lisboa. 9670 has been
reported earlier today and July 31 testing sporadically. At 18-19 it
is to be occupied by CRI via Kashgar. But but by 1712 Encore is poorly
audible at both, better at Lisboa. No point in even trying for this
direct to deep North America; no signal at Maine SDR. Sorry, I`m back
to `Carmen` non-Met on L&C KUCO-FM stereo webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [non]. 14325-USB, Aug 1 at 1310, Hurricane
Watch Net, unID station citing position of Huracán Isaías (confounding
English-only speakers) as 24.3N, 77.5W = 30 km E of Andros, moving at
12 mph. Another QSO on 14343-USB apparently from coastal Floridians
concerned about flooding (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2045 monitoring: JB confirmed,
Saturday August 1 at 1326 on WRMI, 15770, my voice barely
recognizable, while at start 1300 was a JBA carrier.

Also confirmed Sat Aug 1 after 1600 on WRN North America webcast.

Note that Okeechobee is predicted to be not far west of the hurricane
path so WRMI may experience high CCW winds and have to close down for
safety if not blown away, inconveniently scheduled for WOR airings.

** U S A. 17775-, Sat Aug 1 at 1500, JBA carrier at best from KVOH
when `AWR Wavescan` is scheduled; not checked on KiwiSDRs until 1530,
finding no signal at TWR Key West, very poor at Bonaire (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, August 1 at 0541:
from low end of band up to 900 at least, no 531 or 891 from Algeria,
but the only one on 9 kHz steps is 621, surely RNE 300 kW on Tenerife,
CANARY ISLANDS. It`s almost too late for anything from Europe, but LSR
there today was 0627 UT, while e.g. in Sevilla, upon the continent
it`s 0529 UT, if I have correctly converted the confusing listings at
gaisma.com -- where you will not find a Canary heading under Africa,
but under Europe: Spain: Santa Cruz de Tenerife, not under T.

I was also checking page 59 of WRTH 2020, the glossy map of Europe,
not including Canaries even as inset, and notice there is a SW site in
red at San Fernando, on the SW coast of Spain just above Gibraltar.
When was there ever a SW site there, beyond Noblejas or long-gone
Arganda?? Maybe utility? I`ve always felt these maps should be much
more detailed if they would show at least major MW sites, but they are
only for SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
