** CHINA. 13020, May 17 at 1332, huge S9+20 CNR1 with Chinese talk,
not music as previously during this Sunday hour. Really a standout
with nothing else around this WOOB area; but encourages me to do full
bandscan for other jammers to Sound of Hope, 10-16 MHz:

13835, May 17 at 1338, CNR1 jammer at S5-S7 with echo; off by 1412

11440, May 17 at 1340, CNR1 jammer at S3-S5; no others above 10 MHz
this hour and this one also off by next check 1412. But see 11460:

After 1400 I resurvey 10-18 MHz way-out-of-band areas:

13020, May 17 at 1412, instead of bigsig last hour, now a JBA carrier,
tremendous change in jamming or maybe really SOH trace now

11460, May 17 at 1413, CNR1 jammer at S9-S6

11150, May 17 at 1414, CNR1 jammer at S9-S7

11070, May 17 at 1414, CNR1 jammer at S4-S7

10920, May 17 at 1415, CNR1 jammer at S3-S5

10820, May 17 at 1415, JBA presumed CNR1 jammer

13130+, May 17 at 1418, JBA slightly off frequency, so could really be
SOH without jamming

13150, May 17 at 1419, JBA carrier, CNR1 jammer? See below

14400, May 17 at 1420, JBA carrier, presumed CNR1 jammer

EiBi shows all above as CNR1 or Firedrake jammers of SOH, except:
13150 not listed: rather a local mix RHC 11760 + KCRC 1390 = 13150
13835 against RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan

15110, May 17 at 1421, regular CNR1 jammer against VOA Chinese via
Philippines this hour only; there may be others in-band not sought
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday May 17 at 1504, RHC Esperanto is starting on
heavily distorted transmitter // clear but weaker 11760. Note the OM
announcer insists on mispronouncing ``politiko`` with stress like in
Spanish on second rather than penultimate syllable as absolutely
required in Esperanto unless a marked diphthong counts as one

Earlier today Sun May 17, Wolfgang Bueschel monitored remotedly:

``6100 kHz sign-off at 0700 UT. Both 6060 and 6145 kHz channels
carried Esperanto program only short time. Surprisingly
0702:45 UT 6060 kHz outlet switched OFF.
0703:28 UT 6145 kHz outlet switched OFF.

Something`s always wrong at Radío Havano Kubo. Listeners would have
even less chance of hearing the first Espo broadcast if they tune in
at announced time of 0800 Sunday on 6100! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. 12935-CW, May 17 at 1334, ``CQ CQ CQ DE HLG3 HLG3 HLG3
QSX --- K``; and same style CQ marker at 1335 on 12923-CW from HLW2;
weak compared to 13020 CNR1 jammer, but sufficient, encountered as I
bandscan for more jammers. EiBi shows both these as Seoul Radio, but
calls without numbers. Some of few marine CW markers left on SW ---
but do they really make any QSX contacts? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. Mike Agner, KA3JJZ, says, ``The reported callsign for
9830 RTTY is listed as NSS in the UDXF logs, not NAU. The transmitter
site was TDoA'ed to be Davidsonville Maryland, not Puerto Rico per
past UDXF logs. Mike`` ---

Indeed EiBi also shows this. Just to keep them straight, from EiBi
here are all the frequencies shown for NSS ``Annapolis``:
4005, *4985, 6487, *9830, *12015, 15959 ---
And for NAU, Isabela, Puerto Rico:
5340, 5716, 6831, *7455, 7830, 10153, *11688, *12120, 13229, 16123,
*some of them near-constant RTTY/STANAG QRM to broadcasts, all
frequencies available 24 hours. Thanks, Mike (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2034 monitoring: reconfirmed new
time of 0300 UT Sunday May 17 on WRMI 5800, good S9+10/20 altho aimed
SSE like 9955, and no jamming (but I have blob from local device).

minutes into so started circa 0322. Next:

** U S A. 5085, May 17 at 0607 as I am falling asleep, realize that
WTWW-2 is playing the Star Spangled Banner in a piano version, but
keeps cutting out toward the end before transmitter off 0609*; of
course also with the spurs 5072.1 & 5097.9. Strange that hardly anyone
else take note of such a long-standing defect. You can`t miss them on
1-kHz BFO step tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
