** ALASKA [non]. 13670, Sun Nov 22 at 1840, clear speech by YL in
Russian about Yesus, i.e. KNLS via its other station MWV MADAGASCAR;
tnx to tip from Richard Langley. This hour is supposed to be `African
Pathways Radio` in English. RL has previously heard them running KNLS
in English. Now it`s not only the wrong ``station`` but wrong
language. It`s almost as if they are randomly grabbing program files
to put on the transmitter. 1847 indoctrinated kids singing `Jesus
Loves Me`.

Transmission break before 1900, but 13670 back on by 1902, again in
Russian! Instead of Arabic scheduled now. Also S7-S9 direct. 1927 KNLS
ID. Axually this seems to be a transmitter mixup. The other one is
scheduled in Russian at 18-19 on 9880, 19-20 on 9845. What`s on them
now?

Well, at 1940, 9845 via UTwente is playing ``Light My Fire``, in
English, hardly a gospel song, extended version. 1946 segué to another
hard rock song with screamer, maybe Janis Joplin? I`m no
rockficionado. 1951 another familiar hard rock song to 1955*, never
any announcements, so can`t tell what language service this was
supposed to be --- but hardly the fare to be expected out of World
Christian Broadcasting, despite its relatively diverse format on KNLS
& MWV. Could it be that they have rented out one transmitter to
something else, and consolidated their own programming on the other
one, resulting in these language mixups at Mahajanga?

13710, after 9845 goes off, I retune UTwente to the next scheduled
frequency for Arabic at 2000, and its carrier pops on at *1955.8,
S9+20; 2000 ME music starts, and Radio Feda ID mentioning Mauritania,
and so really in MWV Arabic.

11965, checked at 2001, Arabic song, and announcements by same M&W but
no mention of Feda and definitely not // 13710 --- two separate Arabic
programs at once. Instead of scheduled English. Later does mention
Feda in passing. 2015 with times in Greenwich and Qahira. WHAT is
going on here?? All of these with VG signals into UTwente.

BTW, I misspoke on WOR 2061, about previous MWV anomalies, sometimes
interchanging Chinese hour with Arabic, not ``African`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 22 at 0720, only RHC English frequency still on,
S9+20 but suptorted as Arnie is speaking, Breakthru? 6000, 6145 are
off, 6060 has not activated yet, and 9700 last night is gone tonight.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Sunday Nov 22 at 1442, RHC has managed to get back on
new scheduled frequency, after misrunning 6950 both morning and
evening yesterday, replacement for 7350. Amid `En Contacto` with Marta
Rios, and then Prof. Arnaldo Coro Antich himself. Listened to a bit
more of it on 13740 & 13700, without spurs today. Arnie is almost
incomprehensible, babbling lickety-split --- you know, this almost
sounds like he`s artificially sped up.

Somewhere I have a cassette recorder with that feature, variable speed
playback, so you can compress speech and listen to something in less
time than originally, yet without raising the pitch as would happen by
simply playing a reel tape faster. Is he really doing that in order
to cram more content into limited time available? Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 22 at 1515, CRI Plus relay is S9+40, sup-torted
and hummy. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420, November 22 at 0722, great Greek Orthodox
chanting since it`s Sunday morning, violating separation of church and
state; meanwhile:

9645, Sun Nov 22 at 0723, Slavic chanting and singing at S5-S8, must
be Vatican Radio, i.e. Ukrainian liturgy, from SMG, 0705-0800 Sundays
only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. See ALASKA [non]!

** U S A. 383-MCW kHz, Nov 22 at 0729 UT, ND beacon CNP, 25 watts from
Chappell, Nebraska. Axually could not copy third letter due to fade,
but has to be this.

Wahoo, Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7550-7590, Nov 22 at 0726, via WRMI 7570, TOMBS always bombs
in here aimed right at us, but unusual to be splattering so out to
plus/minus 20 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6000, Nov 22 at 0719, RHC is off by now, but there is a
JBA signal, possibly French? Aoki/NDXC shows these could be on at this
hour: R. Guaíba, Brasil, which has been gone for years; AIR Leh,
Ladakh, India, which is still active on night frequency 4760 but this
is at midday; Echo of Hope, Korea S, and/or NK jamming --- if 6000 be
its jumparound frequency this week; not much of a choice, but Ron
Howard confirmed VOH on 6000 as of Nov 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
