** CUBA. 11760, March 24 at 0625, S9+30 of dead air, yet the SSOB.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5800, March 24 at 0635, pulse jamming against nothing at rate
of about 160 pulses per minute. All because some months ago, WRMI
briefly put R. República on here for one hour IIRC 0300. Now it`s
ruined for the forseeable future. WRMI-10 now scheduled 22-04 only
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.994, March 24 at 2121, R. Cairo at S9+35 into UTwente,
but suptorted in English, almost understandable beneath big humbuzz,
2123 presents something else. This time I go looking for a live
webcast. WOR hitlist leads only to general homepage, and can`t get
anything audible. leads to ERTU English via but again can`t get anything to play. At
least it`s a neat multilingual player design. A pop-up for Qur`an
certainly does play -- until it stalls (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7295.002, Fri Mar 24 at *1758, carrier on with tone
less than 1 kHz, presumably BULGARIA, S9+20 into UTwente, 1800 IRRS
s/on as 7295 & 1323, Feature Story News & Spotlite, 1804 into another
newscast not IDing until later as VOA. 14590 harmonic inaudible today
in depressed conditions. Later in hour some rock music show where WOR
used to be, not specified, only generic schedule entry. Before 1800
there is ACI from China 7300, after 1800 2ACI from China 7285. In A23,
IRRS plans to go back to 7290, but not make a time shift, staying at
18-19 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15355, March 24 at 2023, French at S3/S2 is one of few
signals on 19mb in depressed conditions. It`s AWR at 2000-2030 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Mar 24 at 2300, SNR token English, previews will
be pt 2 of 2 interview about German painter Lucian Freud, of the
*ugly* portraits. No tnx, over to Turkey - after checking other
frequencies into Maryland SDR: 12030 & 11940 are OK, but 11685 JBA.
From Mar 27 this will be at 2200 UT M/W/F on 17855 for us - which may
be a bit too high until later in season; 17715, 15520, 11670. Lower
15520 may work better for us off the back to ME, like 12030 has been
in B-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.004, March 24 at 2308, VOT VG into UTwente, with S&R
salute after news and `Review of Turkish Press`; 2315 `Weekly
Analysis` repeat about China getting Iran and Sa`udi Arabia together;
2322 multilingual ID filler reel; 2325 `Feeling Supreme/The Healing
Supring` repeat about colds & flus, antibiotix NG vs viruses; 2331
`Always by your side` promo; music, 2339 `Always with you` promo, `Did
You Know That` repeat about Istanbul restaurant; 2348 ABYS, music;
2352 s/off; 2353 IS; 2356 restart IS with German IDs, and stays on in
spurious language still until cutoff just before 0034* March 25.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Note: From March 26 with
A-23, English moves to 2200 UT on a frequency not used before, 11785
instead of 9830 in A-22. May have ACI from 11780 Brasil (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 10048 USB, March 24 at 0627, San Francisco ATC contacting a
FEDEX flight, refers to another SFO frequency, 6673. Fedex replies
JBA. EiBi shows:

10048 0000-2400 J Tokyo Radio E FE
10048 0000-2400 USA San Francisco Radio NP E NOc /ALS-ba
10048 0000-2400 USA San Francisco Radio NP E NOc /HWA-m

What means NP? This does mean SFO originated but transmitted very
remotely from Barrow, Alaska, or Moloka`i, Hawai`i (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2182 monitoring: ``From: Richard

is appreciated; this week from Gerald T. Pollard, Raleigh NC, for a
generous quarterly check on a US bank marking the Vernal Equinox, to

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to

** U S A. 9455, March 24 at 0631, NO signal from WRMI-5, scheduled
24h, at this time with SMTV; despite disturbances, 9395 & 9955 are
quite loud. Something`s off at Okeechobee. Recheck 2019, 9455
still/again off while 9395 is OK. At 20-21, 9455 would have been the
*only* WRMI with TOMBS! What a respite (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 720, March 24 at 1509 UT, WGN mentions its TV-side, News
Nation. Altho possible via daytime groundwave, strong enough I think
now to be residual skywave; no CCI. City-to-city distance: 1073 km =
667 miles.

670, March 24 at 1509 UT, WSCR also still audible as `The Score` but
with fast SAH no doubt from KLTT Denver, which is always reaching here
via daytime groundwave, 725 km = 450 mi.

MW Offsets shows WSCR on 670.0004 as of 2022 and KLTT on 670.0018 as
of 2020, i.e. 1.4 Hz apart, but obviously much more than that now.
Enid sunrise was 1229 UT today, so these were over 2.5 hours into
dayside (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 24 at 0632, RV manages to modulate, YL talking
seems like French intonation, S6/S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 990 kHz, morning & afternoon chex March 24, JBA signals
from the two accessibles on daytime groundwave, KRSL Russell KS, and
KFCD Farmersville(Dallas) TX, but one of them seems to be dead air. At
2150 UT checking Crowley TX SDR, KFCD is not dead but gospelhuxtering
in Spanish. Overland Park KS is really too far from Russell, but does
seem to be modulation on JBA carrier vs high noise level at 2153, also
too close to local 980 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
