** ARMENIA. 9290, Nov 24 at 1355 past 1400 with no break, S Asian
language at S6-S9. Still there but weaker at 1417 vs running-H2O QRM.
It`s TWR-India via Gavar, in Hindi daily 1345-1415, amid a total span
of 1315-1445 in various languages. Aoki/NDXC shows Hindi until 1420 on
weekdays, otherwise English until 1425*, extended to 1445* weekends
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. UNIDENTIFIED. 4925, Nov 25 at 0217, JBA talk, equivalent VP
signal to S Americans on 4940, 4885. Only 4925 in EiBi is Korean
numbers not at this hour but if on would not be propagating. WRTH 2020
has 5 kW Rádio Rural, Tefé, Amazonas, Brasil as irregular. Aoki/NDXC
shows 0930-0200 as if regular. Not reported lately, but found this
from JRX in Brasil: ``4925. Apr 15, 2020. 0313-0333, Rádio Educação
Rural de Tefé, Tefé-AM, in Portuguese. A musical program with variety
songs; Female voice; A song; Male voice, ID and announcements; 0331 A
song; 0333 Ends and sign-off. Poor reception.`` I don`t get around to
checking TWR Bonaire SDR for this until 0333 --- nothing there (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer search WOOB November 24 at 1346: JBA Chinese or
JBA carriers: 11500, 11460, 11440, 11150, 11100, 10870; none in the
14s, 13s, 12s; 9315, 9300, 9180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Nov 24 at 2205, RHC is dead air, then ramps up to JBM
Spanish, perhaps a typical sign-on warmup, only S4-S7 as is English on
11880. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But recheck at 2348, 11850 is
off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Nov 25 at 0222, RHC English is S5-S7, undermodulated,
unusable. Only //, 6000 is even worse, S9/+10 and JBM. Somethings are
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.884-AM, Nov 25 at 0223, VP S7-S8 music, only
pirate activity now; 0232 brief announcement, more music, LA? 0253
still going, at 0254 into MCW, but fading and only partially copiable
and perhaps with errors; ``CA - OA - OIAEN - ZAN - ORA - ABEC``, until
0258*. Thought it might be Nova, which does CW IDs, but no fit.

KIPM was reported on ``6925`` as late as 0130, but in USB:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74782.0.html

Stardust Five Laser Radio was on 6925-AM, but not since 2158 Nov 24:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74777.0.html

I was hoping someone on HFU would have IDed this and/or copied the
code. Nor any old hits there on the exacter frequency 6924.9 -- but I
had such a log last Feb, which led back to Captain Morgan SW in May
2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA. 18146.8-USB, Nov 24 at 2155, HP3SS working US stations, at
30 miles from Costa Rican border in western Panamá. Sounds like an
American --- no, Canadian, without a specific address in QRZ.com:
``HP3SS Panama flag Panama, Robby Robertson, Volcan, Panama. QSL: via
AC2OV`` and: ``Please do not send mail to Panama. I will not recieve
it. Please do not QSL via buro. I do not recieve cards from the QSL
buro. I have been living in Panama since October 2015. I operated as
HP3/VY2SS for a year while I waited for my Panama call. I enjoy
contesting and DX. My equipment is: Flex 6400 and Ameritron AL-1200.
Antennas are: 20M-6M - 3 element Steppir yagi at 75 feet. Please QSL
direct to AC2OV with SAE and sufficient return postage. Previous calls
- VY2SS, CY9SS, VE2/VY2SS, VE7ARS, VE8HF, VE3FYB, VE1AGN``.

BTW, in my daytime bandscans between the ham and bc bands, I routinely
tune across the 17.9+ MHz aero band --- and *never* encounter any
activity. EiBi lists a number of stations around the world available
24 hours, starting with Albrook, Panamá on 17901. Maybe the aeronauts
are writing off this band as dead even when it isn`t (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 414-MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0708 UT, ND beacon ATS, which is 25
watts from ArTeSia, New Mexico; also audible tuned to 412-USB. Last
logged Oct 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21250-USB, Nov 24 at 1859, WW2DX calling CQDX 15, good
signal yet the OSOB; what a desirable vanity callsign: ``WW2DX USA
flag USA, Lee J Imber, Pawling, NY 12564 USA``. Per QRZ.com he`s quite
the DX-peditioner, including Sable Island postponed from Oct 2020 to
Oct 2021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday

** U S A. I neglected to include the time of UB`s TG special, fixed:
(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 *at 0300-0400* on
6160v & 7490v. I often catch this semi-repeat due to a scheduling
conflict the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 25 at 0215, WTWW-2 is S9+30 with request request,
not so distorted as the music before and after it, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10533-USB, Nov 24 at 1348, 2-way in language, maybe
Indonesian, as I am patrolling for CNR1 jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
