** CANADA. 242-MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0724 UT, dash and XC, 500-watt ND
beacon at Cranbrook, BC; mixed with FS and EL, see USA. Distance to
Enid: only 2051 km = 1274 stmi since it`s in the SE corner, but new
here.

244-MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0724 UT, dash and TH, 1000-watt NDB at
THompson, Manitoba; axually further than XC, due north at 2152 km =
1337 stmi. DXinfocentre has nothing else anywhere on 244, clear
channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9965, Jan 15 at 1607, rather strong pulse and noise jamming
against nothing; is it DentroCuban Jamming Command paranoia,
incompetence or really holding a grudge? Radio República via Costa
Rica drew the jamming here originally. That was last heard exactly 10
years ago! Currently the only occupant of 9965 is Palau and not at
this hour (and no jam now on 9955, despite WRMI being off) (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13699.9 approx., Jan 15 at 1556, bandscan finds poor
off-frequency-minus music, but cuts off at 1557* before I can finish
measuring it. Surely RHC, one of the less frequent
something`s-always-wrongers, but has happened before. Nothing left,
not even TOMBulgaria, supposedly 13700 at 1400-1800 per Aoki/NDXC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255-MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0725 UT, SW, Stillwater NDB is
finally back on the air. Checked nightly since last heard Dec 31. Jan
1 snowstorm may have knocked it off.

341-MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0703 UT, EI, Enid NDB is finally back on air.
Checked nightly/daily since last heard Jan 2. I wonder if the same
engineer/entity were responsible for reactivating both at about the
same time. Both 25 watts, and altho further, SW always sounds louder
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15205.059, Jan 15 at 1603, JBA signal from Riyadh as
scheduled 1545-1757 per Aoki/NDXC; typically askew. There`s no shame
if your receiver cannot measure beyond the decimal point; but if it
can, you should do so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 242-MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0719 UT, ND beacon EL, which is 400
watts from, where ELse, EL Paso, Texas, a new one here. I was tuned to
240-USB. BTW there is also an LE on 242, Lexington KY.

On 242 itself at 0724 UT, I am hearing 3-way mix at different pitches
of EL; FS = 400 watts from Sioux Falls SD, normally the only/dominant;
and XC, see CANADA.

347-MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0732 UT, NDB AFK, which is 25 watts from
Nebraska City, NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also OKLAHOMA

** SINGAPORE. 7355, Jan 15 at 1609, Korean at S9/+10, the SSOB by far
once 7490 WWCR begone; i.e., BBC via Kranji at 1530-1830 carrying on
far beyond NK and why isn`t it jammed? Per my NGS globe with geometer,
the 250 kW, 25-degree beam then crosses southern Alaska, central BC,
MT, WY and within a couple degrees of hitting Enid head-on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

first airing of WORLD OF RADIO, UT Friday at 0130 on WRMI 5850 & 7780,

** U S A. 13655-13660, Jan 15 at 1654, another try to tell what`s on
the WINB DRM. VG noise here as usual, so I try the Omaha KiwiSDR; S/N
varying around 12 dB, not enough altho S9+5; labeled 8.28 kbps, mode
B, Chan 5 kHz; never mind what`s on the rest of it, 13650-13655.
Occasional bits decode; 1656 a few more giving 504 area code,
Fellowship-something, .LA.org. 1658 ``Over the Rainbow`` music and
WINB ID, 1700 YL starts another gospel huxter, but cut off the air*.
Looking thru the program list at WINB.com I find none with Fellowship
in their name (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6200, Jan 15 at 0713, S2-S3 of music, presumed ROCV
reactivated on new frequency, as first reported by Manuel Méndez.
Apparently runs all-night; alternate frequency to be 7375. Per
Aoki/NDXC the only other 6200s to beware of are: Tibet from 2050 to
1805 including English at 0700 --- but that`s circa noon there; and
Voice of Jinling, Nanjing, China at 12-15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
