** CANADA. Re: ```274-MCW, Jan 20 at 0737 UT, dash and YPM, 25-watt
NDB from upnorth Pilangikum, Ontario, still in Hepburn list in red as
``back on``. Distance is 1741 km = 1082 stmi, or 43.28 watts per
mile.``` --- Should have read miles per watt, tnx to Richard Line in
MI for catching that (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Re: ``U S A. 286-MCW kHz, Jan 20 at 0735 UT, ND beacon
.-.-/... --- what??? .-.- is not a Roman letter but Russian ``ya``. I
listen again and again, and that`s what it sounds like, tuned to
284-USB. But this must be on 286, EKS in Ennis, Montana, heard without
a pause between dit for E and dah-dit-dah for K! Classaxe shows no
note about any such error``

Harold Frodge, MI, replies: ``No mystery --- 284 QD 0.4 The Pas MB, Le
Pas A/P; 01 Nov (DT), 06 Dec (KZ) [Has misskeyed as .-.-/...]``

Then I find this in about QD 284: ``Most often miskeys
with the first dash in each character replaced with a dot. Sounds like
AA S. 15Feb2020``

But not always: I have also heard correct QD. This seems about as
convoluted an explanation as mine of another station lacking a pause
between two letters. But pinning down the frequency to 284 implies
it`s QD --- and what I heard did have a dash, overlooked in my
original report, so it`s Canadian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Jan 21 at 0126, RHC English only S6-S9 direct, but:

5040, Jan 21 at 0127, RHC off or below noise level here; 0135 checking
Bonaire SDR, only a JBA carrier, could be India? While 5025 Rebelde is
good. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13634, 13569, 13769, 13838 all approx., Jan 21 at 1443,
extremely distorted spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

13739.796, Jan 21 at 1445, the other RHC 22m frequency bears the
transmitter off-frequency from 13740.00. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. Re the 3+1 pips I heard at strange time of 1344 Jan 19
on 1566 kHz, ``One of the clubs has compiled a timesignal reference
but I have not found it again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)``

Richard Langley replies on the WOR iog: ``It is attached. See FEBC in
the list. You're welcome. -- Richard Langley``

And thank you. I see there are some others with 3+1, altho FEBC
appears to be the only one that fits on 1566; e.g. there are no NHKs
at all on 1566 per WRTH. I`m really quite sure that`s it, but curious
if others have noticed the pips at odd times like transmission changes
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2069 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday January
20 at 2100 ono WRMI 7780, S7-S9 to UTwente SDR.

Missed checking Wed Jan 20 at 2300 on WRMI 9955; anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Thu Jan 21 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9/+10 to Bonaire SDR.
JBA carrier here vs S9+10 high noise level.

New WOR 2070 should be ready by early UT Jan 22 for first airings
