** BRAZIL [and non]. 11905-11910-11915, Dec 31 at 0627, DRM noise from
RNA resumed experiment S9/+10 to here direct, maybe would be
decodable. [WORLD OF RADIO 2067]

Tried it for NYE, Jan 1 at 0201; not enough S/N into Bonaire, but
11780-AM is VG altho somewhat distorted with NYE talk and MPB, leading
up to 2021y at 0300 UT = local midnight, when I am listening again,
retuned just in time at 0259 until -- until --- cut off the
transmitter during MPB at usual 0300* sharp, no countdown, no
timesignal, no nothing!

Quickly retuned Bonaire at 0300 to 6180 to hear --- to hear --- bigsig
from La Voz Alegre, Florida gospel huxters with gringo accent, back
via MADAGASCAR, but with a fast SAH underneath, maybe RNA still on
there but useless.

It was a busy WOR Thursday produxion day among other things, so I
missed any earlier Jahrwechseln via SW, even Spain at 23 UT, WWV at 00
UT. Nor will there be any Guatemala at 06 UT but celebrations here!
Freezing rain is closing in, so who knows whether we shall have power
and internet into 2021 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 335-MCW kHz, Dec 31 at 0641 UT, dash and YLD, which is
1000-watt ND beacon at Chapleau, Ontario. I was tuned to 334-USB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. I am seldom up to check for CNR1 jammers before 1400 UT; in
autumn and A-20 season there would be loads of them WOOB above & below
11 MHz and also circa 13 MHz. So at 1359 Dec 31 I hasten to scan
around 11 MHz, and, nothing; maybe on but not winterpropagating (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, Dec 31 at 0628, RHC Spanish is still on here beyond
usual closing; something`s always wrong at RHC. At least it prove
there be propagation approaching 12 MHz in the nightmiddle (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13555 approx., Dec 31 at 1425, RHC spurblob with F# tone is
offset a little more than usual into the ISM/Part 15/HIFER band: then
also found around: 13629 S4-S6; 13700-AM fundamental S9/+20; 13772;
13844 QRMing 13845 WWCR on its LSB, tsk2; and 13915 weakest. So these
are multiples of plus/minus 71-72 kHz. It`s about time this hit WWCR;
so far keeps missing Martí. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 31 at 0632, no signal from VON; nor have I
noticed it lately; could be on 11770- instead but not propagating;
anyhow not to be heard on either now, nor possible 9690- (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 475+MCW kHz, Dec 31 at 0636 UT, had not heard Dave Frantz`s
WWW WA4SZE BEACON for several nights, but back on now from Manchester,
TN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2067 contents: Australia, Brasil, Canada,
Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Eritrea, Korea South, Newfoundland &
Labrador, New Zealand, Romania, South Carolina non, Spain, Sri Lanka,
Sudan, Taiwan non, Turks & Caicos, USA; and the propagation outlook.

Completed just in time for first airing anywhere, UT Friday January 1,
2021 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+35/45 into Missouri SDR; but canceled as I
feared on 5010 to the south as checked via Bonaire. The 01-02 hour now
has 5010 paired with whatever be on 7780 instead of 5850; at least
this should now apply to both for the final WOR repeat UT Thursdays at
0130, if reclaimed from `Mundo Sorprendente` specials.

** U S A. (7490), Jan 1 at 0300, WBCQ webcast since 7490 reception is
insufficient, of Uncle Bill`s NYE special hour, `Escape from 2020`,
with portions of his and other WBCQ programs; but the first thing is a
real turn-off, screaming ``365 [sic, sick] days`` in honor of last
year. 0329 Tom Call amateur Theatre; 0334 Cosmikdebris and Jane,
concluding with FTIOM, and a bit of Spike Jones until 0400. An
enjoyable diversion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Received December 30: ``Ahoy Glenn - Here's a TRSW rarity
and Collectors Item. Yours was the ONLY report received on our
December 27 program via WBCQ and here's your Exclusive eQSL.
[now via
as #106]
The report by the way was correct. This design isn't one of our
limited edition eQSLs so Cap'n Ric added the proper text to recognize
your "accomplishment." You and the Cap'n may have been the only people
listening to the broadcast. 73 and Arrgghh. Always be yourself.
Unless you can be a pirate. Then always be a pirate. Texas Radio
Sailing into your ears from the Lone Star State``

The reports said: ``Contrary to other listings Texas Radio Shortwave
Xmas show is at 0300-0400 UT Sunday on WBCQ 6160v and A51/61 webcast,
starting at 0303, instead of 0200-``; [later:] It`s not the same Xmas
program at all that was on WRMI last night, but: ``Camel Rock `n` Roll
Dance Party``, recorded in NYC 1956 when smoking was supposedly kool,
er --- gh`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, Dec 31 at 0630, KVOH is only S3-S5 as it`s often faded
way down into the night over the almost 2-megameter path, closer than
Habana. Ray Robinson says some programming changes from January 2 for
UT Tuesdays-Saturdays: ``Scott Martin's 'Song in the Night' will be
moving to 0600-0700, in place of the repeats of 'Jazz Session'. But,
we will still have a nightly hour of Big Band music on the schedule in
'Swing Shift', at 0200-0300`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2067)

** U S A. (101.1), Thu Dec 31 at 1735-1900 UT, caught the last half of
Susan Ohori`s world music show in KSFR Santa Fe NM webcast, and indeed
she is still calling it `Beyond Borders`, whatever the schedule may
show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers, not a thoro search but
stepping 10 kHz on USB I hear the telltale hets from plus 1 kHz
against the following domestic frequencies: 530, 620, 710, 890; and
1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
