** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, July 4 at 0543, RTA, Arabic via FRANCE with
the self-QRMing beeping Issoudun transmitter. BTW, that was also
applied to 13820 during the July 2 English segment around 1830; but
you never know which transmitter will be in use at which time on which
frequency of RTA, RFI, or some other relay, from one day to the next
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 4 at 1357: 13160 S4; 12820 JBA
carrier; 12800 S9 in Chinese.

At 1423, 13160, S7-S9 music; 1424: 10820 S4-S5; 10920 JBA; 11120;
11440 S5-S6; 11460 JBA carrier; 1428: 13530 JBA.

At 1429: 9180 S5-S8; 9200 S6-S9; 9230 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, July 3 at 1409, JBA talk here, presumed 2 x 6000 RHC,
which quickly checked is still on and barely audible, but 12000 gone
at 1410*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 3 at 1415, RHC is absent when this is supposed to
be on; 15230 is on but S9-S7 of dead air, or JBM? Something`s always
wrong at RHC. July 4 at 1400 both are on and modulating, VP (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, July 4 at 0547, RHC English at S5-S9 vs CODAR, quite
audible but not as big as last time on 2 x 6100. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.2, July 4 at 1429, JBA carrier from presumed VOK
still way off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, July 3 at 0606, VON is gone again from both
possible frequencies. Ditto July 4 at 0558 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5890, July 4 at 0544, Brother HyStairical is
back now that WWCR-4 has been repaired and reactivated; see also USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, July 3 at 2230, VOT, English to NAm
confirmed active today via KiwiSDR Pardinho SP Brasil which I happened
to have just checked for WOR/WRMI; but with heavy splash from much
bigger signal on 9820; at first thought it might be SP`s local R 9 de
Julho, 9818v, but in Chinese, so HFCC as CNR, 150 kW, 290 degrees from
Xi`an; specifically CNR2 per Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28281-CW, July 3 at 1420, beacon ID W8E? copied, probably
this which fits with another letter, from WJ5O roster:
``28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL``

Sporadic E; in the previous minute also had one on 28205; and on 28255
a K6##, but none listed around there.

28280-CW, July 3 at 1424, dash and ``DE K5AB ... CENTRAL TEXAS...``
also heard a few days ago, now VG at peaks:
``28.280 K5AB C GOLDTHWAITE, TEXAS # 50W, GP VERTICAL Power increase 5
May 16``
Lots of hets on CB, and WWCR 15825 & 13845 also Es-enhanced (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, 6160v, 5130v, UT Sat July 4 after 0000, for AAAWWW,
these WBCQs are detectable, very poor signals with storm noise; all I
hear at a quick check is Angela overmodulating an opinion on current
events.

Has been repeating 24 hours later on 7490v at least, but not this
week, as UT Sun July 5 at 0000-0100 is when Uncle Bill`s
much-publicized 4th of July musical special is due, on 7490+v and
6159.9v.

Unfortunately simultaneously with `A Capitol Fourth` on PBS-TV, but
repeated a sesquihour later at least on OETA; and CNN`s 4OJ special at
0000-0400 UT, not to mention countless local events, including Enid,
where the Enid Symphony Orchestra is barreling ahead with its
traditional performance at Meadowlake Park despite the risks; people
are encouraged to spread out as there is plenty of space around the
lake, but in best of times getting in and out is problematic, e.g.
avoiding those burning poison gas, i.e. smokers who think it`s OK as
long as it`s outside; and parking is a nightmare.

I urged conductor Doug Newell to reconsider; what about the musicians
crammed under the canopy? The windy ones at least cannot be masked.
How about recording and/or broadcasting it? He says they don`t have
the rights to do so, which would be an additional expense.

The concert is always free to the public, underwritten this year by
Security National Bank. Starts around 0130 UT after a full day
schedule of other risky events at the Park, and to accompany fireworx
circa 0230 when it`s finally darkening.

To avoid the hassles, the past few years we have been attending
instead dress rehearsals at 4 pm Saturday back in Symphony Center, but
not this year in that enclosed and possibly crowded venue. The
fireworx can of course be seen from a considerable distance away, but
the music inaudible. Years before I had tried to get them to employ a
Part 15 FM transmitter for better sound than over the loudspeakers,
and maybe audible just outside the park in cars. Nix.

ESO apparently is itching to get going again with no performances
since March, the final scheduled concert of the year, an all-Beethoven
bash in April for season subscribers only, postponed. BTW, there
aren`t enough local musicians to form an orchestra, so ESO has to draw
in others from elsewhere in OK. As a 51-K city, we are lucky to have
it and hope all of them survive (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, July 3 at 2044, NO signal from WRMI-9 when RFPI is
scheduled on Fridays; normally a JBA carrier at least; while 15825
WWCR & 15610 WEWN do now achieve that much (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7385, July 4 at 0236, this WHRI is now squealing, like 7315
VOV relay previously; now 7315 is also on in English not // gospel
huxters, and also squealing.

9825, July 4 at 0555, WHRI squealing here too with g.h., maybe one of
same transmitters as earlier on 7 MHz. Haven`t they noticed in Cypress
Creek, Furman, Noblesville or South Bend?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, July 4 at 0239, WWCR-4 is back on, non-TOM during this
hour, following several days off for repairs. Day frequency 9980 also
resumed at 1654 check, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also SOUTH
CAROLINA [non]

UNIDENTIFIED. 12670.0-USB, July 4 at 1359, 2-way in Spanish, one of
them screaming, encountered as I bandscan for CNR1 jammers. Per
Klingenfuss 2002y, this was not a ship SSB frequency, but WNU New
Orleans was in CW/DIG on 12670.4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
