** CUBA. 6180, March 11 at 0147, S9+20 of dead air on CRI relay, trace
of underaudio maybe Brasil if not CRI JBM. Also some lite pulse
jamming, maybe bleedover from Cuban neighbor transmitter. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 11880, March 12 at 0059, huge open carrier,
S9+10/20 via Bonaire KiwiSDR, so quiet that I thought at first the
tuner was muted. About 0059.7 a few notes of the Encompass IS so
evidently routed via London; 0100 opening ``KBS World Radio``
pronounced in English, otherwise relay in Spanish. This was found by
Ivo Ivanov as a new entry in HFCC B-20 for March 10-12 only as a test,
but was heard yesterday until 0200 with a VG signal by JRX in Brasil
who thinx it runs at least until March 28. Supposedly still on 9605
via WHRI at same hour, I did not get around to checking. Other
frequencies were registered via Greenville but AFAIK never tried. We
assume that KBS relay is due to switch from SC to NC, sometime. I
understand it is on azimuth 164 from Grimesland (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 332-MCW kHz, March 11 at 0716 UT, unusually a third station
mixing with IC Wichita KS and QT Thunder Bay ON, the latter weaker
than usual as it normally exceeds IC despite being 10X further. Part
of the call is overlapping, but ends with -IS. This is a likely fit:
FIS, Key West - Fish Hook FL, 400 watts. I had another fishy log of
this on Dec 14, over 2 megameters away vs TB at only 1.5 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, JBA vs CODAR, March 11 at 1451, K6FRC calls over
and over, HIFER beacon in Patterson CA, every logging notable as it`s
1.8 milliwatts. Never traced much later in the day (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2076 monitoring: Monitored WRMI Sunday
Evening / Monday Morning (UTC) 7780 kHz Schedule --- From my recording
last Sunday evening, 7-8 March 2021 UTC (note additional airing of
World of Radio at 23:00 UTC): 23:00 World of Radio (#2076; not
Bringing Truth to Life) (Richard Langley, NB, March 10, WOR iog)

New, now added to the sked grid. Has been 24 hours earlier Saturdays
but not on grid, so both now, or moved? This would have been at same
Sunday time as on Area 51 WBCQ 6159.93, but from March 14 that
presumably shifts one UT hour earlier to 2200 UT, further into
ever-increasing daytime absorption. I`m hoping A-21 skeds out shortly
from HFCC will no longer show a WBCQ conflict with WHRI over 7490, so
we can go back into the night at 0300 UT Mondays on 6160-. 7490
programming obligations had to be moved onto 6160.

WOR 2076 also confirmed Wed March 10 at 1050 when I happened to
awaken, the 1030 on WRMI 5850, VG.

Also confirmed UT Thu March 11 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9 but noisy
storm crashes from Iowa; also some storms vs Pardinho, Brasil SDR,
S8-S9 at 0157 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

First broadcasts of WOR 2077 confirmed, UT Friday March 12 at 0130
just minutes after completion, on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct, and
sufficient tho noisy off the back via Bonaire SDR I already have
running; and 7780, good S9/+15 to UTwente, VG S9+10/20 to Maine (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540.20v, March 11 at 0705 UT, major het against 1540.00
KXEL at al. stations, presumably again WKVQ Eatonton GA, 10 kW
daytimer as previously traced; little or no modulation on it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2077)

** VENEZUELA. 6205.026v, March 12 at 0210, ROCV via Bonaire SDR, much
stronger than last night, power up from 60 watts? But
overmodulated/distorted, continuous music past 0230 rather than
frequent, or any, 93.7 IDs as before. Kiwi shows carrier varying
around plus 26 Hz, very close to where I measured it directly a binite
ago, +22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2077)
