** BRAZIL [and non]. 11875-11880-11885, Nov 27 at 2252, cannot hear
any DRM under RHC-AM in English at S7-S9; meanwhile RNA-AM on 11780 is
S9/+20 with flutter, unusual for trans-equatorial on HF. Brasília
KiwiSDR at 2312, hears only JBA AM carrier on 11880. Nothing listed
after 2300; occurred to me later, possibly 2nd harmonic from the
Brazilian but that would land on 11879. So what became of the 24-hour
DRM tests? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13564 & 13837 approx., Nov 27 at 1440, S3 FM spurblobs with
F# tone out of S9+10 but undermodulated RHC 13700-AM; the lower one
blots any chance of hearing K6FRC, 1.8 milliwatt HIFER beacon in
California on 13565, but have not heard it for quite a while even when
in the clear. These are second-orders, while the first-orders, plus
and minus 68 kHz, circa 13632 & 13768 are S6. All still there at 1527
recheck. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 18146-USB, Nov 27 at 1532, ham contact in French, then
pileup and quick contacts in heavily accented English with US
stations; with each one he gives temp 10 C, geographical location and
spells name. QRZ.com shows: ``F5CAC France flag France, Christian
Rebout, 45 Grande Rue, 25310 Abbevillers, France. Is there a contest?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Nov 27 at 2253, soft YL vocal music but
mostly instrumental, S8-S9, past 2300 no ID, direct; sounds better via
remote iin Missouri, still music at 2322 but reads only S6-S7. 2325
chirping sounds but not like usual SSTV, but no more music. Still thus
at 2342, like multiple crickets, so something else? This had been Mix
Radio International, widely reported since 1900:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Nov 27 at 2259 direct, no signal from VOT
English to us; something`s always erroneous at Emirleer. Same at 2311
via UTwente but getting weak Chinese, i.e. PBS Xinjiang, 5960-,
Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of cultural genocide and brainwashing of
Uyghurs, which per EiBi starts at 2310. Would you believe that some
editor won`t let me make that remark? It`s the least I can do, surely
not much, to oppose and expose the ChiCom (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 404-MCW kHz, 1339 UT Nov 27, ND beacon HU, which is 25 watts
from Hutchinson, Kansas. Mixing with at very different pitch:

407-MCW kHz, 1339 UT Nov 27, ND beacon HRU, 25 watts from Hoisington,
Kansas; tuned to 404-USB, mixing with HU --- Hoisington is NE of
Hutchinson, ESE of Salina, S of Junxion City (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, Nov 27 at 1535, no signal from KVOH, even tho I just
heard a ham in southern California on 18 MHz band. Before I could
report this, explanation was already in from Ray Robinson of KVOH to
the WOR iogroup at 1752; would that more station personnel were so
forthcoming explaining anomalies without even being asked:

``[WOR] Power Cuts --- Due to high winds, Southern California Edison
has today been cutting power pre-emptively to subscribers in Los
Angeles County and Ventura County. They are concerned that downed
power lines may cause fires and result in law suits against them.
Unfortunately, the areas they have targeted this morning include both
the transmitter sites for KVOH-SW and for our sister FM station KWSV
99.1 The Ranch. As a result, KVOH is currently off the air, and the FM
station is operating from a back-up transmitter at another location.
We expect the power to be returned by about 1 pm Pacific, [18 UT] but
KVOH will be off by then anyway. Ray`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [and non]. 15550, Nov 27 at 1528, OC, 1529 echoey talk with
flutter, S7-S9, 1530 Radio Dabanga song, i.e. for Sudan via SMG site.
Fortunately, WJHR with better signal is still on 15555-USB, not 15550
where Aoki/NDXC shows it, after brief jumpto months ago.

15400, Nov 27 at 1528, R. Tamazuj ID in passing, i.e. for Sudan South
also via SMG, this one amid hour broadcast. 1531 sounds like Arabic,
but presumably Juba dialect (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

COLUMN: TO SAVE OUR REPUBLIC, WE MUST BE GRATEFUL

...decadence yields ingratitude, ingratitude yields laziness in the
populace, and a lazy populace is easily oppressed. And, my fellow
Americans, we find ourselves today a decadent, lazy and corrupted
nation, waiting for our version of the Goths — which could be another
pandemic and its attendant economic collapse — to knock over our dry
bones...
