** CANADA. 284-MCW kHz, Nov 23 at 0719 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from
The Pas, Manitoba. Evidently the name is not Anglo-French;
The Canadian Encyclopedia says: ``The origin of the name is uncertain,
but it may be the Cree word W'passkwayaw, meaning “wooded narrows” (in
the river) ... The Pas Band (now the Opaskwayak Cree Nation)
surrendered the townsite in 1906 and moved to reserve lands on the
north bank of the Saskatchewan River. Jun 11, 2019``. Well, cutting it
to three letters is a whew goodthing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Nov 23 at 0311, quick check of Bonaire SDR finds
usual good signal of gospel huxter in Spanish from anonymous mystery
missionary station -- AMMS? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9535, Nov 22 at 2327, RHC JBA under multiple
collision, Commies vs Commies: Aoki/NDXC shows CNR1 jamming, RFA
Tibetan via Kuwait; and also CRI English via Kunming. In fact seems to
be an echo on the Chinese from more than one site. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6145, Nov 23 at 0312, no RHC English signal, at
Bonaire remote, while 9700 is JBA, 6000 S8. To Missouri SDR, 9700 is
VG S9+10, no 6145, and 6000 is S9+30 but JBM distorted --- must be
`DXers Unlimited` minus Arnie as his sub talks about propagation.

Another check at 0525: 9700 is on over CCI which would be Turkey; 6100
and 6060 are absent; 6000 suptorted; 6145 in Romanian which must be
RRI, perhaps explaining why RHC evacuated tho I had not noticed this
hour collision before. By 0608, 6100 is finally on, VG S9+30/40, so
starting at 0600? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 23 at 2111, RHC in French also reactivated and //
synchronized 15140 distorted; 13680 now in Portuguese poor at S8-S9.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 15540, 15530, 11970, Nov 23 from 1800, no signals from
anything on R. Kuwait frequencies. Pedro Sedano, Spain, had recorded
the 0800 UT sign-off announcement on 15530 saying that was on 11970
and English would resume at 1800-2100 on 15540 for Europe and North
America --- altho morning English recently resumed replacing Arabic,
still no evening English, unless on and not propagating, but I doubt
that, rather a very old recorded outdated announcement. But perhaps
there be hope. That transmission presumably still exist at least on FM
& AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11610, Nov 23 at 2145, MWV in correct language,
Chinese, always VG >> 4.000 MHz higher, 15610 WEWN English; other MWV
frequency 9765 in correct Portuguese altho the final praise song
sounds Spanish until 2157 dead air with no closure (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 6185-, Nov 22 at 2319, XEPPM is S9, as always
undermodulated, but now also with CCI, Chinese? No, per Aoki/NDXC, CRI
in Mongolian this hour via Xianyang 59 site. Mexico`s last SW station
don`t get no respect, as Ivo Ivanov also notes:

``Upcoming frequency change of NHK World Radio Japan via MBR
Moosbrunn, Austria, ex-6155 from Nov 30:
0430-0500 NF 6185*MOS 300 kW / non-dir to WeEu English Mon-Fri
0500-0530 NF 6185*MOS 300 kW / non-dir to WeEu English Sat/Sun
0400-0430 on 6185*MOS 300 kW / 115 deg to N/ME Turkish Daily AWR
*bad news for 6185 MEX 001 kW / non-dir to CeAm Spanish Daily XEPPM
Radio Educacion!``

Per Aoki/NDXC other 6185 obstacles: China Huayi from 0915, VOK from
1000, and Vatican in Chinese until 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 23 at 0605, no signal from VON (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.9-AM, Nov 22 at 2312, JBA music at S6 = QRN
level. Insane Radio as reported here much better:

** U S A. 274-MCW kHz, Nov 23 at 0718 UT, ND beacon RG, which is 25
watts from Red WinG, Minnesota, a.k.a. Shoe City; and not to be
confused with our RG on 350 in OKC. I was tuned to 272-USB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: missed checking UT
Mon Nov 23 at 0030 on WRMI 7730; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, G S9+10 at UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, S8-S9 at UTwente;
also on 5800, S9+25 into Pardinho, Brasil SDR; also almost
synchronized on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0400 on Area 51 webcast, after a
Miller Beer commercial(?); but on WBCQ 6159.9 direct at 0427, JBA vs
HNL = high noise level.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10/20/30
direct, as usual right after 2+ minutes of music fill from R. Prague
relay, no ID break. No pulse jamming? Only audible during some RMI
fades; still at good level toward end of semi-hour. You never know
whether this transmission will be VG or JBA.

Also confirmed Mon Nov 23 from 1901 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria,
recorded via UTwente and checked later: *1857.5 carrier on quieting
but still with annoying ACI splash continuing during WOR; almost 1900
IRRS sign-on with Milano PO Box and phone, 3 quick FSN headlines and
then WOR: spotchecked intact for next 13 minutes at least. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0200 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?] NEW
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE

** U S A. 5850, Nov 22 at 2314, Brother HyStairical is VP, only S6-S7,
hard to believe it`s WRMI on NW beam which normally blasts in here.
It`s as weak or even weaker than never-strong 5950 to WNW. Can`t be
propagation, since 5800 WRMI is VG S9+25/30 with SMTV despite aimed
SSE from FL. 5850 must be temporarily QRP, and is back up to full
strength checked a few hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490.1v), UT Tue Nov 24 from 0000, WBCQ webcast cuts off
some wacko conspiracy talk for 50% of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`,
replay from 25 hours ago when it all aired; starting with a scrotum
song, but we have been warned. Also plugs his TG special UT Fri Nov 27
on 6160v & 7490v. I often catch this semi-repeat due to a scheduling
conflict the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6906, Nov 23 at 0311, quick check of Bonaire SDR finds
still no trace of an ROCV signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
