** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 21 at 1338-1400, a lot of them
despite using indoor longwire due to storms. Noted S reading for some
of the strongers; many confirmed by //, but some JBA carriers in usual
spots so presumed. Chinese talk at first, later music:

13160, 12880, 12870, 12835, 12500, 12190; 14900, 14850; 16100 JBAC,
16300; 11460 & 11440 S9-S7; 11120, 11070, 10960 JBAC, 10920 S6-S9,
10820 S9/+10; 9230, 9200, 9180; then check inbanders: 11520, 11570,
11580=not synchronized; 11785; 9680, 9660.

At 1428: 15110, 14980, 14690; 13160, 13020; 11550, 11120, 11070; 9180

** CUBA. 11589, 11629, 11711, 11752, 11793 approx., July 21 at 0052,
extremely distorted spurblobs out of RHC 11670 transmitter, at
intervals of ~41-42 kHz, unlike last time, safely further from the
other RHC fundamentals on 11760, 11800. Recheck at 0215 finds the
same, plus maybe trace on 11834. Strangely enough, no acknowledgment
of these bonus frequencies in Arnie`s latest ``official`` RHC
schedule, which also includes several errors we know are untrue.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7350, July 21 at 1334, no signal from RHC despite 1100-1500
schedule; uncomfortable spot, right smack dab amid Radios Martíes &
jamming on 7335 & 7365. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA. 6090, July 21 at 0252 open carrier S9+10/20 but vs HSNL;
0257-0300 plays nice 8?-note chime? interval signal, worth hearing
clearly in a better season or closer pickup, i.e. Radio Amhara; thank
you, PMS for keeping Anguilla off!

Or via the terrific website
http://intervalsignals.net/countries/ethiopia.htm
which has a huge list of clips, three of them naming Amhara, not clear
which one this be --- but none of them will play, all getting error
messages. Has something happened to this site? We haven`t heard from
David Kernick in quite some time. That was on IE, but worx OK on
Firefox. It`s this first one called Amhara Regional Radio, recorded
almost 11 years ago, and with Anguilla in the background:
http://intervalsignals.net/Files/eth-amhara_state_240909.m3u
Unfortunately, frequencies where recorded are not displayed.

BTW, here`s a good article on current situation in Ethiopia, by Ian
Bremmer in the latest issue of TIME:
https://time.com/5864684/ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-hachalu-hundessa/

BTW2, a new season of Bremmer`s Gzero World has just started on PBS:
https://www.gzeromedia.com/gzero-world-with-ian-bremmer/
but so far no sign of it on our OETA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 11560, July 21 at 0213, the wonderful AIR IS is playing,
S6-S8 with flutter, 0215 into unknown language. This transmission is
NOT in Jose Jacob`s latest schedule dated July 20:
https://qsl.net/vu2jos/es/time.htm
so apparently another service just resumed, but what? Original full
B-19 sked in WRTH 2020 showed Pashto at 0215-0300 via Bengaluru.
VU2JOS does show the evening Pushto on same from 1415.

Here`s the same IS, but only once:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-AM, July 21 at 0047, JBA carrier vs HSNL [high
storm noise level], surely not Chile but per
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69706.0.html
it`s Foxy AM, from 2351 to 0058*, maybe back on later (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW, July 21 at 0623 UT check, NDB PN at Ponca City
is still OFF (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, July 20 at 2201, no signal from VOT, just NSS RTTY
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2043 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue July 21 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, VG at UTwente SDR it`s aimed towards. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 7730, UT Tue July 21 at 0038-0044, WRMI-13 segment in this
week`s AWR `Wavescan` is tribute to the late Allan Loudell, a
much-liked regular at the SWL Fests and Delaware broadcaster; with
various clips altho we don`t hear much from himself (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5886 & 5894 approx., July 21 at 0210, the WWCR-4 transmitter
on 5890 is flanked by some buzz peaks plus/minus ~4 kHz, maybe passing
on a defect in the program modulation, which at this hour is E. C.
Fulcher, TruthHouse Ministries rather than TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 1090, July 21 at 0601 UT, dead air from KAAY
Little Rock, just like happened months ago night after night, but had
not checked for it lately: automation fails to fill a news-hole.

This makes it easier to DX other 1090 stations, nulling KAAY. I am
expecting XEAU Monterrey NL as used to be primary and may be in mix
now, but also something in English, song refrain, ``No, he`s my
brother``, probably an hymn. Closest other candidates are KMXA Aurora
CO, but is it still ``regional Mexican`` as in radio-locator.com? and
500 watts at night? Or KEXS Excelsior Springs [Kansas City] MO, EWTN
English but zero watts at night? KEXS at 300 miles can make it here in
a quiet daytime. Or??? 0605 gospel music modulation comes back on from
the ESE, LR AR. KAAY may give us more DA chances, also perhaps at
other hourtops (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13972.7-USB, July 21 at 0050, 2-way in Spanish JBA, as
heard on this frequency before lately, a regular?

I wish some Mexican or other Latin American DXers, who could
understand these better and hear them as well or better, would pay
some attention and report what they are talking about, make
assumptions about what kind of unlicensed communications these are ---
but there is CERO interés, AFAIK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Espero que algunos colegas diexistas mexicanos o latinos, capaces de
comprender mejor a lo que digan, y tal vez sintonizar más fuerte,
presten atención a estas emisiones, y nos informen de qué se traten,
suponer de qué tipo sean estos contactos sin licencia; pero me parece
que existe ningún interés en este asunto (Guillermo Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
