** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 5960, March 21 at 0000, from the land of
ChiCom imperialist genocide against the Uyghurs, XJPBS Urumqi in
Chinese dominates The Mighty KBC, Holland via Germany, as heard via
UTwente SDR, Holland; it used to be off-frequency minus but now is
within subaudible heterodyne - SAH range of Nauen. Until a few minutes
earlier, however, VOTurkey IS covered it up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4075-AM, March 21 at 0236, pirate music S9+10,
stronger than 4055 TGAV only S9; 0237 segué to a heavy beat dance tune
and cut off air at 0241:15*, no announcements. More logs as unID, some
thinking it smacked of X-FM:

Very sad news via NASWA: pirate enthusiast and columnist George Zeller
died the morning of March 20 from a house fire in Cleveland, caused by
electrical overloading. An obit is in the WOR iog (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 7570, Sat Mar 20 at 2300, `Encore` classical hour
from R. Tumbril is not to be heard on this WRMI when it has been for a
few months; not even on the air now until 0000, per new skedgrid
updated March 14. Contrary to this week`s promo from Brice Avery;
guests on WRMI cannot expect to be notified of schedule changes,
rather must keep monitoring and checking the skeds, which now show:

New On 5950: Tue & Sat at 2200
0100 UT Sun on 5850 & 7780, not a new simulcast; has been so for
several weeks. When I listen to it this week!
Still shown:
0200 UT Mon 5950
1300 UT Tue 15770
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2078 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
March 20 at 2130 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+10/20 tho aimed away, one real
hour earlier now, and NO jamming audible either.

Also confirmed Sat Mar 20 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, S9+5/15 into UTwente
SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sun Mar 21 at 0320 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 4
minutes into so started near nominal 0315, S9+20/30 direct and no
storm noise for a change. Per Blitzortung, in the entire Conterminous,
only one tiny storm in NE Wyoming, but a line east of FL and Bahamas
outinto the Atlantic. Might be good for LW beacon DX later, but for
K-index of 4 after G2 geomag storms. Next:

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun March 21 at 0028, WTWW-2 starting `Theater
Organ Under the Arch`, new earlier nominal time for DST season, but as
always the distortion on this transmitter is intolerable, especially
during a fine music show. Once again I try the #2 webcast which is
hi-fi, $tereo, but intercepted by this: ``Website blocked due to
suspicious activity --- Website blocked: wtww.us Malwarebytes Browser
Guard blocked this website because it may contain scam activity. We
strongly recommend you do not continue.`` I could try using a remote,
but of course GIGO, they are also picking up the original distorted SW
signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
