DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated August 4:

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST of SW stations, by Alan Roe, updated:


** CANADA. 326-MCW kHz, August 4 at 0644 UT, ND beacon dash and YQK,
which is 200 watts from Kenora, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See
also U S A

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, Aug 5 at 0231, anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH
is back after some absence, usual screed, S8-S9 except for some deep
fades. Tnx to tip from Eric Fetters-Walp on the WOR iog:

``[WOR] YHWH on 7470 as of 0220 UTC Aug. 5 --- Just checked 7470 kHz
and found Josiah back after several days -- if not longer -- of being
off the air. A noisy signal with lots of fading, but very audible
talking as of 0220 UTC here near Seattle, where we've still got full
daylight`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, August 5 at 0057, JBA music with flutter both up
and down and sidewise, S5-S6 at best until 0058*. Must be end of
Bengali semihour from SLBC as scheduled, despite current report from
Ivo that: ``Two of three transmitters at Trincomalle [sic] are out of
service. The transmissions of Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation /
SLBC and some transmissions of Adventist World Radio / AWR are
suspended, as follows:
0030-0100 on 11905 TRM 125 kW / 345 deg to SoAs Bengali SLBC
0200-0230 on 11905 TRM 125 kW / 345 deg to SoAs Hindi SLBC...``

The B19 sked in WRTH 2020 was different, continuous 0030-0230, the
first and last semihours in Hindi, 0100-0200 in Bengali, all on 11905
Trincomalee. No azimuths ever shown there, but if Ivo be correct,
Bengali segment is not aimed at Bengal, east or West! Anyway,
trans-polar to here.

Last logged here July 13, 2018 from *0030v. Before that when the sun
was a bit spottier, I tracked numerously previous *0115 openings with
variable off-timesignals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. MADAGASCAR. Ivo Ivanov reported: ``AGAIN NO
SIGNAL of MGB Eye Radio Special px on 7340 kHz August 3
0459-0557 on 7340 MDC 250 kW / 335 deg to EaAf Juba Arabic*-pls check
on August 4
1459-1557 on 15410 MDC 250 kW / 340 deg to EaAf Juba Arabic*-pls check
later today * including news in other languages:
-- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

So I do check, 0500-0505 Tue August 4, no signal at UTwente on 7340,
just strong BBC Vatican on 7345. Aoki says Eye at 05-06 is on days 1
and 7 only. This had just been registered as an extra hour to deal
with COVID-19. Ivo replies, ``But no signal on both frequencies
Sat/Sun August 1/2 and Mon/Tue August 3/4`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. Correxion: 9685 was certainly not splashing upon
9830; I must have been referring to Spain 9690 getting QRM when
checked at same time via UTwente, no such ACI here:

``TURKEY. 9830, Wed July 29 at 2230 tune-in via UTwente, VOT English
is on today and VG, even without hum, but splash from 9685 which is
the orphan CRI ``Portuguese`` service of fill-music-only, via
Kashgar...`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 257-MCW kHz, August 4 at 0648 UT, ND beacon JYR, which is 25
watts from York, Nebraska, a new one for me? York is due north of
Enid, also on US 81, and east of Grand Island. I was near there for
the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 --- those were the days ---
and brief ``nights`` but I was not checking for NDBs (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR) See also CANADA

** U S A. 7637-USB, UT Wed August 5 at 0114, encrypted alfanumerix
including ``fife`` for five in ``UR55W``, presumably paramilitary
mumbo-jumbo from CAP as previously logged here UT Sat April 18 at 0124
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. NEW WORLD OF RADIO times on WRMI. On August 3, the skedgrid
has been updated to show WOR UT Saturday at 0130 on 9955, but no
longer on 5850 & 5010, still on 7780 at that hour. Also new 7780
Saturday at 2300; all of this yet to be confirmed. The sked appears to
be in flux with blank spaces on System F, where we hope to get back on
5850 to the NW and/or 9395/9455 SomeSystem to the NNW for better
coverage across the continent. Still shows the same early UT August

Several WOR times still displayed on the grid are long outdated or
imaginary, and we stopped trying to confirm them long ago:

Sat 1130 9955 - active for a while earlier this year
Tue 2130 System D - no frequencies
Wed 1030 5950 on System F, but frequency grid shows SMTV on System J
Wed 2100 System D - no frequencies
Wed 2100 7780 - active briefly earlier this year
Thu 2100 System D - no frequencies
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

on WRMI 7780, fair S9 better than usual here. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 7505, August 4 at 0136, and August 5 at 0117 chex, WRNO
continues AWOL. Last time I logged it was June 10 at 0144, on but with
dead air. Certainly not tracked every night, but first noted missing
on July 22.

Strange website with moving views of snow-covered hills on homepage;
listen linx stay silent; linx to external social media site providers;
does have own FB which has not been updated for months; this page for ``upcoming programs`` shows
none since July 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
