** BRAZIL. 9665.9, March 21 at 2235, and about an hour earlier, no
signal from RVM, which would be propagating if on, since 9630+ Radio
Aparecida succeeds (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA, 13620, March 21 at 1525, RHC is JBA, // 13780 & 13700 of
which this is a leapfrog mixing product; reverse on 13860 has
something stronger blocking, VOA Radio Ashna, 1430-1630 via Woofferton
UK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.0-AM, March 22 at 0037, C&W music, S7-S9
undermodulated; briefly heavy QRM from 2-way on 6930-LSB. Then I am
distracted by two more simulpirates on the 4 MHz band, q.v. At 0058
back to 6925, now S9+20 playing choral ``O, Canada``, 0059 SSTV
beepery. Several logs here as unID, but a couple with ID CYOT:

No view of the SSTV ID. So it`s ``Canadian`` -- or could be, which is
why I always file these unknown location pirates continentally rather
than countrily, not to overlook our northish neighbours. Off at 0105
check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4015-USB, March 22 at 0041, S9+20 of folk music,
including lyrix ``Down on my luck``, ``Honduras, ``guns and money``,
S9+10. Distracted by two simulpirates on 4175, 6925, qq. vv. Recheck
just in time at 0048 to hear ``Wolverine Radio`` ID, more music; still
going at 0107. Or something; this thread is rather confusing with some
other IDs reported as WDDR:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4175-USB, March 22 at 0044, S9+25 of rock music;
0100 live DJ announcement, ``X-FM, broadcasting to you from somewhere
under the stars; it`s one o`clock zulu``, acknowledging reports; 0102
a strange show tonight since his computer died; going mellower now;
address xfmshortwave@... mentions T-A reports; tnx to Mix Radio
International at the controls --- so relayed by that one? ``East of
the Rockies, but west of Normal`` (Illinois?); last two tunes will be
by Bruces, Coburn and Springsteen. ``From somewhere under the stars.``
0119 seems wrapping up over music, refers to HFU logs, requests; 0122
sign-off with 1:22 TC; e-mail address again; a request for some
Tool(?), ``Music to the power of X``; one more greeting over music to
someone in the wilds of Arkansas with a shiny loop antenna. Many many
logs here starting at 2243:

** U S A. 13565-CW, March 21 at 1524, K6FRC, HIFER beacon from
Patterson, California, is quite audible vs CODAR after many morning
chex with none of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2026 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria reports: ``Fair/good signal of World of Radio#2026, March 21

1300-1330 15770 RMI 100 kW / 044 deg WEu English Sat World of

Also confirmed, Sat Mar 21 at 1952 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, JBA at

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, March 22 at 0049 and later, no signal from Area
51/WBCQ, nor later; rather, too much pirate activity. See NORTH
AMERICA. WBCQ still not reactivated on 3265v or 6160v either (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, Mar 22 at 0108, WRMI with classical music, the bonus
frequency which Brice has not publicized for `Encore` now at 01-02 UT
Sundays; S9+30 here even tho aimed SSE; while primary 5850 is S9+45.
Repeat will be UT Mon 02-03 on 9455. Meanwhile, another survey of
what`s on the other WRMIs this UT Sunday at 0110+

5800, AWR Wavescan, Jeff interviewing George Ross of TWR at HFCC A-20
KL, recorded before it started; more to follow. Jeff mentions that
among the cancellations are NASB, which was scheduled for May 14-15 at
WEWN.

5950, SMTV
7570 & 7730, TOMBS
7780, `La Rosa de Tokio`, this week appreciating AWR with clips
including something on 5950; Moyabi, Gabon ID in English; 0128 AWR ID
in Thai(?)
9395, music, Oldies?
9455, different music, rock
9955, jamming and gospel? song

Partial recheck at 0130: 9395, 9455, 7780, 5800, 9955 all with
different musix I am not trying to unravel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday March 22 at 0020, after interminable
hamstuff and commercials by Ted --- he must be getting a good cut of
all that revenue --- Bob Heil starts his anonymous theatre organ show
from ``new`` studio in Belleville IL; ``Theatre Organ Not in the
Ozarx``? = TONITO. Sounds familiar; first tune is ``Everything`s
Coming Up Roses`` --- maybe keeping track of openers would cue us
about reruns, unless considered a theme. Considerable distortion here
at 0045 check, S9+45, and listening on webcast is not handy; recheck
0052, 5085 already back to rock music, so hardly exceeded 30 minutes
this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6950-LSB, March 22 at 0036, QSO in Spanish about antenna
mathematical principles. One can`t help but encounter these when
seeking N American pirates.

6920-LSB, March 22 at 0037, another QSO in Spanish. I will not call
them hams since they are not above 7000; who knows if they be
otherwise licensed, nor which borderside (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
