** CANADA. 2749-USB, May 9 at 0606-0609*, Canadian Coast Guard,
Nova-Scotia-area frequency, *two* roboYL in French, sound alike but
unseem duplicative or echo, equal levels until both stop at 0609 after
``terminé``. I am now thinking this be a malfunxion out of a single
transmitter rather than two clashing:
Yarmouth/Halifax/Sydney/Escoumins, none of which are scheduled on air
at this hour per http://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA. 15165, May 9 at 1359 ``Jump`` song, Chinese briefly,
timesignal and off, CNR1 jammer against VOA Mandarin via Thailand,
this hour only.

15110, May 9 at 1401, Chinese, CNR1 jammer vs VOA Mandarin via
Philippines, this hour only.

These encourage me to keep tuning downwards thru WOOB areas for more
of them:

13130, May 9 at 1403, CNR1 jammer // 15110, but here against Sound of
Hope.

13070, May 9 at 1405, open carrier with flutter, similar signal to
13130 but no modulation, just as the upper goes off. 13070 also SOH.

11170, May 9 at 1417, CNR1 jammer vs SOH.

11150, May 9 at 1418, CNR1 jammer vs SOH; altho Aoki/NDXC shows this
one stops at 1000, unlike EiBi.

I keep tuning WOOB down to 8 MHz but none further heard. But one more
later:

11675, May 9 at 1520, Chinese dialog, CNR1 jammer vs RFA Mandarin via
Saipan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 2940.133, May 9 at 0610, JBA carrier detected for the
record, despite heavy storms in the RGV and Louisiana coast, presumed
HJNT, Radio Huellas, Cali, 2 x 1470.0665, South America`s most
reliable MW harmonic (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7380, May 8 at 2301, RHC in Spanish instead of English, which
is heard only on 5040, not 11880 which 7380 replaced a few days ago.
Spanish frequency announcement, partial? of 11850 and 6000: 11850 is
also wrong, having moved onto Romania`s 11800. 7380 still in Spanish
at 2321. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, May 9 at 0123, RHC S9+20 of dead air, then suptorted
modulation, cutting in and out. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, May 9 at 1409, no signal from CRI Plus relay in
English; oops, recheck at 1521, now it`s on, S9+20 but undermodulated;
something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, May 9 at 1518, dead air of S9+20 from RHC. But no
spurblobs today.

13740, May 9 at 1518, almost dead air of S9, but JBM of RHC; long
after both are supposed to quit. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 11800, May 8 at 2302, RRI starts the Spanish
hour atop RHC, but is losing out by 2309 to RHC // 7380 instead of
English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 8 at 2237 check, VOT makes it on today, poor-fair
music; 2249 CV precaution PSA; 2251 multi-lingual ID filler; 2253
sign-off as if the 1230 on 15450, IS until 2256*, off just in time to
avoid fantastical German lead-in. Something`s always awry at Ankara
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 2097.3-CW, May 9 at 0613, single-letter beacon A, every 10
seconds audible vs high noise level, anywhere but Quartzsite AZ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2033 monitoring: confirmed first
WRMI broadcast, Friday May 8 at 2200 on 9955 --- checking via remotes
instead of here: very heavy pulse jamming at Brasil, Trinidad;
Colombia SDRs gone; somewhat audible vs jamming at Bonaire, Dominican
Republic, Maine. However, good at Alexandria VA, little or no jamming
until fading down by 2225.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 9 at 0130 here on WRMIs: 5850 VG
S9+20/30 despite omitted from new WRTH A-20 update, among other
errors; also 5010 S9+10/20 slightly better than 7780 S9/+10, both
noisy.

Also confirmed Saturday May 9 at 1323 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, poor
S6-S9, presumably much better NE of FL. Next:

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat May 9 from 0000, WBCQ with `Allan & Angela
Wiener Worldwide` --- John Carver reports:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490. Music on 5130 and no signal
on 6160. Program came up on 5130 at 0002 but still no signal on 6160.
Allan and Angela in the studio but it is a repeat of last week's show
as Allan removes his shirt because of the heat and then they talk
about May Day. John Mid-North Indiana``

Yes, I also heard the first few minutes when it became obviously a
repeat from last week. You were right, it was Allan who took off his
shirt, not Angela; wishful thinking? He always introduces her as
``gorgeous``. See for yourself on a number of twits such as:

UNIDENTIFIED. 5005, May 9 at 0100, VP carrier, much like we get from
EQUATORIAL GUINEA after 0500; could that transmitter be onstuck?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9875+, May 9 at 0129, algo S6-S9, JBM. Nothing listed at
this time in the Big 3 references; slightly off-frequency+plus, a clew
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12535-USB, May 9 at 1407, 2-way in Spanish, laughing,
one stronger than the other. Maybe legit, as was ship station channel
117 as of Klingenfuss 2002 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
