** GUAM. 12085.013, Dec 1 at 1509, unknown language, S Asian? but
often pronouncing the word ``Bible`` as in English with long I, so
suspect a gospel huxter, S6-S9 and slightly off frequency. Aoki & EiBi
agree it`s KSDA AWR, but can`t agree on language: Lus in Aoki, MZ in
EiBi. His readme.txt leads to ``Mizo / Lushai: India-Mizoram (0.7m)
[lus]``, so that covers it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WO)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Dec 1 at 1504, S7-S9 in presumed Kurdish,
apparent news with clips from Dengé Welat via PRIDNESTROVYE, also with
fast SAH from another carrier, but no other audio, probably Turkish
jammer; also some lite long-path echo as previously measured and
explained (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11705, Dec 1 at 1507, S8-S9 Arabish talk, i.e.
Juba dialect from R. Tamazuj this hour via MADAGASCAR. Altho the
furthest landmass near our antipodes, we get lots of good reception
from this island, especially when beaming across Africa USward beyond
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8502-USB, Dec 1 at *2315, NMG USCG New Orleans cuts on just
as scheduled in EiBi with marine weather, and better modulation than
last time when I thought it was 8501-USB. Apparently between several
voice broadcasts there are longer spans of fax from same? transmitter
listed as 8503.9. Is there still heavy usage of fax mode in this
context? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2062 monitoring: Next:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. We have discussed how WHRI is occupying 7490 at 0430-0600 so
WBCQ cannot --- yet its skedgrid claims to be on 7490 at 0400-0600
Tue-Sat at least, but I already confirmed by monitoring that the show
in question was axually airing on 6160v. However, I also confirmed
that WORLD OF RADIO was still on 6159.9v as of 0400 UT Monday November
30. But not any more. Larry Will of Area 51 tells us:

``Hi all, WBCQ has to change the long running show "Herald of Truth"
from our 7.490 MHz service to 6.160 MHz effective this Sunday. This
will displace the last hour of Area 51 on Sundays, so I've arranged to
move World of Radio and Hobart Radio International as follows:

World of Radio, was 0400 Monday, now 2300 Sunday
Hobart Radio International, was 0430 Monday, now 2330 Sunday
This change will be effective this Sunday, December 6. Regards, Lw``

** U S A. 9955, Dec 1 at 1516, WRMI-3 is still on after nominal 1500*
weekdays, in English interview talking glowingly about exports of
Taiwan, hostess YL with Spanish accent. This has got to be `Freedom
Synergy Radio`, not heard or reported in a few months, come to think
of it, since stopped new programming in August. I search for it on the
WRMI programming and skedgrid pages, and is now nowhere to be found.
Here`s my last log of it under the same circumstances, one UT hour
earlier during DST:

``9955, Aug 27 at 1418, WRMI prolonged today beyond nominal 1400* with
Freedom Synergy Radio talking about Taiwan in English. You never know
whether this webcast-only time will also get shortwaved``

So I suspect the automation has pulled out an old file to replay,
unless it has just been renewed. I also noticed 9955 on air early
today, I think during the 20 UT hour with TOMBS, contrary to sked
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4095+ CW, Dec 2 at 0110, upward sweep tones once a
second, and IDs as DW every 23 seconds. Monitored via WO7I SDR in
Winnemucca, Nevada, as tipped by Joe Caberlin, Ontario at 0054, he
having first heard it at 0032 via KFS SDR in CA on 4095.5.

I wonder if this is related to or same as the ``W`` beacon on 4102+
heard earlier this year as a ``weather`` beacon somewhere in the SW
desert, which also transmitted encoded beeps about temperature, wind,
battery charge, etc. I quickly find a current log of this on HF
Underground with more detail:

Re: New whooper beacon on 4095.6
« Reply #33 on: December 01, 2020, 1710 UTC »
DW still sweeps low to high with the very first whoop going from
4095.65 to 4096.20 and the next 21 whoops from 4095.65 to 4096.1 KHz.
The CW ID of "DW" is still at the low end at 4095.65 but no longer has
that chirp on the first dash. Coming in S1 on the KFS Kiwi SE radio.

I recheck at 0212 via NV remote and it`s better at S6-S7. Worse at
0236, S5-S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6840-AM, Dec 2 at 0002, open carrier ex-6860, and in the
meantime I also had it on 6880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6935-LSB, Dec 2 at 0004, 2-way in Brazuguese; one was
humsinging a bit making me wonder at first if it were a broadcast
pirate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
