** CANADA. 392-MCW kHz, Jan 13 at 0419 UT, dash and ML, 500-watt ND
beacon at La Malbaie / Charlevoix, Quebec; mixing with FMZ, Nebraska,
see USA, on same frequency but very different pitch and no dash. Not
to be confused with also on 392: ML and no dash, Monroe, Louisiana;
nor Monroe, Georgia with ID as JNM, both 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** FRANCE. More about RFI in DRM on unlisted frequencies besides 5875
where I have heard it twice until 2400* --- from Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria:

9905; 2300-2400 on 5875 via Issoudun, all unregistered in Winter B20
HFCC Database

0000-2400 on 3965 ISS 010 kW / non-dir to WeEu French is registered

January 13 NO SIGNAL on 7405, 9900, 15285 kHz. But 9905 kHz is on air
again. Good signal plus decoding, but not strong audio via SDR
Novosibirsk, Russia -- 73! Ivo Ivanov`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, UT Wed Jan 13 at 0335, WRMI with discussion in
English about Cuba, no doubt `Freedom Synergy Radio` yet again
occupying this hour instead of scheduled programming as filed
previously under USA; FSR is pro-Taiwan, anti-ChiCom, but from the POV
of anti-Commie Cubans (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 338-MCW kHz, Jan 13 at 0415 UT, ND beacon UMP, which is 25
watts from Indianapolis / MetroPolitan. I was tuned to 336-USB.

392-MCW kHz, Jan 13 at 0419 UT, ND beacon FMZ, which is 25 watts from
Fairmont / Beklof, Nebraska; mixed with ML and dash, see CANADA, at a
very different pitch. What is Beklof? Folkeb spelt backwards. In
numerous airnav references, none explaining the name. Fairmont is
directly linked to Enid on US 81, 20 km south of York and I-80,
total-solar-eclipse territory.

412-MCW kHz, Jan 13 at 0420 UT, ND beacon CMY, which is 30 watts from
Sparta / Fort McCoY, Wisconsin. I was tuned to 410-USB (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2068 monitoring; next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE [resumed]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

WORLD OF RADIO 2069 should be ready by early UT Friday January 15 for
first airing at 0130 on WRMI 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 13 at 0336, WTWW-1 with dead air, or maybe JBM as
it`s very weak S4-S6. Other TN signals degraded, WWCR 5890 & 5935, but
a few hours later resurged. Circa 1500, neither 5830 nor WTWW-2 5085
is on the air, unlike yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Jan 13 at 0347, VP music at S6-S7, has to be
reactivated WRNO; no break at ToH, music with praise tinge continues
past 0400. WRNO is just too close, 1010 km = 628 st mi; while e.g.
WRMI at better further skip distance is still blasting in on 7570,
7730. And/or WRNO at QRP = reduced power (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
