** BRAZIL. 11880, replies to no DRM heard from RNA as last reported:
``11875-11880-11885, Nov 27 at 2252, cannot hear any DRM under RHC-AM
in English``

``Well, they are tests, and by nature tests may be irregular. I don't
know for sure, but I'd guess they are trying to fix whatever was
causing transmitter dropouts all the time. 73 -- Chris Mackerell,
Sandy Bay-Marahau Road, Marahau RD 2, Motueka 7197, New Zealand`` and

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5800, UT Sat Nov 28 at 0300, once again this week,
WRMI is playing `Encore` classical music. I notified the WOR iog ASAP
and wondered if this replace UT Thu on same, as Richard Lemke says
that was missing this week. And also Brice Avery who is unaware of
this emission in his publicity. But this is a prepeat, probably first
airing anywhere as on the 28/11 playlist.
https://www.tumbril.co.uk/playlist-2
which I think will become playlist-1 when there is a new one next
week. I enjoy the hour very much via a remote in Missouri in the Synch
AM mode --- S9+30 almost ``local`` reception but totally mono. WRMI
skedgrid still has a blank in this space, with Encore on Thu.

About the playlist, the layout is rather confusing. Ma Vlast, for
instance, does not attribute it to Smetana but seemingly to Dvorak:
evidently the third column is the name of the record which presumably
included this piece. In classical music, the composer always comes
first --- then the title of the piece, movement; then the performers.
After that the less important record title and label. The way this
displays, the composer may or may not show up in any of the columns,
or may be incorrect. Brice`s announcements, of course, are more
explicit and with some further info.

Another thing I wish he would fix: ``playing out`` on the final piece,
which means it is going to get chopped off abruptly at 59:30 for the
WRMI ID before it`s finished. This is extremely jarring and unfair to
the music. Make the program a little shorter, 59:00? and/or start the
last piece in time for it to complete, preferably also then with a
back announcement and good-bye (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490.1v), UT Sat Nov 28 at 0100, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`
notes: says is on 7490 & 6160 only. WBCQ is fine, crew is well.
Looking for one or two full-time engineers to hire, good pay; very
little COVID-19 in northern Maine --- but see this gh found:
``Aroostook County reports record high COVID-19 cases for a single day
--- Alexander MacDougall • November 24, 2020``

https://fiddleheadfocus.com/2020/11/24/news/aroostook-county-reports-record-high-covid-19-cases-for-a-single-day/
--- County population is about 70K, he says. Aroostook is huge, the
cap all over northern Maine, and down the NB border. Last week a pump
blew a seal, so off the air for a day, and there was no spare, AHW`s
fault, but the crew soon got it back on air. Not clear which
transmitter(s) he is talking about.

Still waiting to acquire WHRI, delays in getting FCC approval, maybe
because they are working from home. Otherwise would be on air right
now with World`s Last Chance program --- and he mentions NO other
program in connexion with WHRI, so it`s pretty clear WLC is
bankrolling this too. Believes China should compensate handsomely
every single American for the virus which was no accident. Discussing
safety measures around electricity, and that common household 120V AC
is among the most dangerous, because it locks your muscles up so you
can`t let go before it kills you. So avoid getting shocked.

At 0124 finally datestamps this as 27 of November YOOL 2020. Then
reads a Nov 18 Radio World article about stations other than KDKA
being ``first``, such as MXZ Marconi in England, 9XM Madison WI now
WHA, 8MK to WBL to WWJ Detroit. Discussion of VLF stations such as NAA
Cutler, Maine. 0149 Angela reads some e-mail. AHW has A-Fib (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490, Nov 28 at 0528, outro of `Heart to Heart with Kimberly
Ann`, World Harvest Radio promo, 0530 Pete Sumerall introduces late
father Lester. So it`s WHRI as registered in HFCC B-20 for 0430-0600.
Yet, the WBCQ program schedule claims it is on 7490 at 0400-0600 with
a wacko conspiracy show I am not going to name. Since I first pointed
out this anomaly of WHRI signing off 7490 at 0600, there has been a
resounding lack of interest: it seemed as if WBCQ might already be
doing some programming on a Furman transmitter.

6160, Nov 28 at 0545, I monitor 6160v which is certainly WBCQ while a
talk show is in progress --- is that the one their schedule mistakenly
shows as on 7490? At 0554 host says not going to do a third hour
tonight --- that`s certainly flexible! Refers to ``want to show you
this ---`` so apparently originally a web/podcast with video. As
commercial plug. Jeffrey Daugherty is host, so that clinches my
conclusion about WBCQ showing wrong frequency on sked (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re last report, 17775-, KVOH being off: converting PST to
UT, I was thinking 21, but somehow wrote 18, sigh; fixed:

...We expect the power to be returned by about 1 pm Pacific, [21 UT]
but KVOH will be off by then anyway. Ray``

We shall hear if it`s really repowered by 1600 Saturday for Wavescan
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
