** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat May 1 at 1438, LRA36 is on and into
Brasil SDRs, one of them slightly noisier than another. First talking
about current events such as the Iran Nuclear Deal [should that be
capitalised?]. I`m busy with breakfast, etc., so not listening
continuously, but 1530 still there, S5 in Antártida song;
1538 IDs in 4 languages mentioning Base Esperanza. 1552 typical canned
ID, ``Nacional Antártida Argentina, La Radio Pública``. 1555.5 another
ID and at 16009. 1623 still on at S1-S3; 1650 comes in stronger,
music; 1658 eQSL info; sign-off Saturday broadcast, so this part is
not a Wednesday playback. Mentions being part of the Ministry of
Defense, i.e. military, not civilian as Wikipedia claims. 1700
Antártida song, now S5 and does not really close down yet. 1704 & 1708
other music 1732 ``sign-on`` again with Spanish, German, English,
Russian?/Korean? announcement. 1737 Antda. song again, email and FB,
frequencies 15476 and FM 96.7 at the base, max temp today 2C, couldn`t
catch the min. Off abruptly at 1740* and still of by 1744 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, May 1 at 0642, JBA carrier; not in a full 9
kHz bandscan which would now be too late for Eurafrica, and too early
for DU/FE, but just right for R. Kiribati some two hours after its
sunset. cannot handle computations from London,
Kiritimati, or Christmas Island, or Kiribati, instead leading to the
far western isles of Kiribati, to the UK or even Australia! My NGS
Globe when it was part of the Line Islands shows Xmas about 4500
statute miles from Enid or 3900 nautical miles, or 7250 km. I can`t
imagine this JBA carrier being anything else, save for some deliberate
spoiler on the same frequency closer such as Tucson in the same
direxion, which is 250 degrees, as I once confirmed but not lately. If
propagable, a spoiler from the exact opposite direxion would have to
be from Philadelphia to Western Sahara into central Nigeria (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11905, May 1 at 1839, anti-Christ pirate, Station
YHWH is JBA at W7RNA Phœnix remote, and at 1853 JBA carrier here, tnx
to tip from Rick Barton in AZ who was hearing him better at 1815. YHWH
has shown up before circa midday on various 25mb frequencies. Walt
Salmaniw says he was off by 1930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 1 at 2200, VOT English is on today vs RTTY. The
Kiwi at KB0FX escapes it by LSB tuning altho before on my own rigs the
RTTY has inevitably spanned both sides. Mostly music later in hour, IS
keeps going, 2259 ID in German, and the spurious German program keeps
going until someone wakes up and turns it off at 2319.8*. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: as often, missed
due to sleeping the May 1 Sat 1300 on WRMI 15770, so hope to see some
confirmation of it later.

Confirmed Sat May 1 from 1800:38 on IRRS Bulgaria 7290 via UTwente
SDR, very strong and loud without much QRM. Also Challenger Radio on
new 918 kHz from Villa Estense, Italy, via the neighboring Noale SDR.
I was listening to both before 1800: at 1750. 918 in English about
ballet, steady S9+18; 7290 still weak Chinese. By 1757, 7290 open
carrier is on at S9+25. At 1759, 918 stops unknown program to play the
IRRS `Aïda` march theme with no upcut. 7290 JIPs it upcutting at
1759:47, quick IRRS sign-on, some pause and WOR from its start but not
synchronized via these two very different routes. Now it`s S9+25/35 on
7290 via UTwente. Ends properly before 1830.

Also confirmed Sat May 1 from 1949 tune-in until finished at 2002.8 on
WA0RCR, 1860-AM via KB0FX remote, S9+8. It was skipping frequently and
I hope this is an SDR defect, not that way out of Wentzville. Which
BTW must interrupt for own ID every dekaminute, and also removes my
opening billboard as too musical for ham radio. Next:

Hi Glenn,

I was listening to this, it came on at 1300 but went off after about a minute or so and it
was then WRMI fill in music and jingles till 1330 when SW Radiogram took over. Looked like
some sort of computer hitch which switched to the backup.
