** AUSTRALIA [non]. `Calling All Radio Nutz`, I monitor on and off for
the first time via the Unique Radio stream, as it has just been
rescheduled for 20-22 biweekly UT Saturdays.
http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/listen.pls

From 2035 UT Nov 28, tune-in to VP off-the-air DX recording of
something in Indonesian, then hi-fi music. 2041 back-announcement, has
been a band from Benin called Orchestra; the preceding DX tapes were
R. CANDIP, Zaire, 5066 from 1983y; UAE Radio, Abu Dhabi when it was on
11m, 25900; RRI Jakarta, 9680 from 1982? Is it still active? One
co-host asks, No, replies the other who used to get it regularly in
Denver. The latter is ``Jen, Radio Nutress`` --- does that mean they
identify as female? Voice is ambiguous, soft-spoken and sometimes
overridden by noise, such as someone unexpectedly on the roof
installing an AC.

CARN is an extremely informal live show. 2053 an off-air recording of
something in German. Recheck at 2124, the conversant in UK, called
G.B.? or Mike? is giving some DX news, InconfidĂȘncia on 15190, Brasil
DRM on 11880, Tumbril on 6070. 2126 into live bandscanning, comparing
what they are hearing on same frequencies in widely divergent
locations, such as 6000, 5995 Mali; 6050 - HCJB? mixing with
something, Chinese, also ELWA? I think it`s a bit early for Ecuador.
2149 more vintage clips, Reloj de Costa Rica, I guess on 6006,
something from Iceland. Meanwhile I also find:

Unique Radio has resumed streaming and changed times for WOR, also
showing expected SW frequencies when they resume from new location:

** CHINA. 5050, Nov 28 at 2321, JBA carrier, presumed V of Beibu Bay
Radio, Nanning, morning 2300-0102 broadcast no longer blocked by WWRB
on weekends, moved to 3215, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Nov 28 from 2327, WOOB 9-16+ MHz; cannot
be positive none be Sound of Hope or other targets as too weak to
parallel, but no reason to believe they be anything but on-frequency
jammers; when there is any audio it`s Chinese or seems Chinese: JBA or
JBA carriers u.o.s.:

9215 stands out as S9+20, far stronger than any of the others, topping
an open carrier on 9218; 9200 S7-S9; 9280; At 2336: 10160; 10820;
10870 S4-S5; 10920 S5-S7; 11070 S3; 11100; 11170. At 2340: 11430
S3-S4; 11440; 11460; 11500 S2-S3; At 2346: 12190; 12210; 12500 S4-S5;
13070 S6-S7; 13130 S5-S6; 13160; At 2354: 13530 S6-S7 vs CODAR; 14940;
no 15s or 16s tho some RTTY is propagating above 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA. 11670, Nov 28 at 2342, during CNR1 jammer survey, Chinese
not // here, as it`s CNR2 non-jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 21, Nov 28 at 1936 UT, I`m surprised to see some DTV
area tropo enhancement still in vigour in the afternoon, as four hours
earlier it wasn`t quite enough to decode KUOT-CD, OKC, but now it is:
same PSIP as KUOT on all subchannels:
21-1, 3ABN {Cornerstone}
21-2, no signal! and diamond, an incoming error message at station
{IBN Television}
21-3, 211? - not sure of my scribble {3ABN}
21-4, algo with LIVE bug UR {Amazing Facts}
21-5, Hope bug UR {Hope Channel}
These do not all match the lineup at {rabbitears.info} as above (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12808.5-CW, Nov 28 at 2350, VVV marker from KPH, the
weekend-only legacy run of KPH by MRHS in California. A few other
markers on 12 MHz probably South Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. After an hour of napping along with KUCO`s anonymous
post-opera birthday vocal music show, I tune on the same portable
DX-398 with telescopic only to what I know will be a bigsig aimed
right at us from Okeechobee:

7570, Sat Nov 28 from 2300, WRMI with the publicized anniversary
replay of the inaugural broadcast of Texas Radio Shortwave. I hope for
the special eQSL repeatedly offered for detailed reports. Opens with a
song by Floyd Domino, `You Can`t Get The Hell Out of Texas`. Frequent
Turkey-gobble-gobble SFX, for this was originally a TG show, now a
biday late. 2304 plug gmail address and frequently, mostly by Third
Mate Susan roboyl; and ``all the music was carefully selected and
mixed by DJ Mr. Turkey``.

Most of the songs to follow are unfamiliar to me, titles and
performers not announced, so I may only give vague descriptions of
some, I would say lots of novelty tunes, and I do not shazaam. 2305
hard rock about America; 2312 it`s S9+20/35, as I start DXing with my
right ear on the big rig, continuing this into my left ear. 2315
gobbler and segué; 2320 song includes some talking; 2323 ID by M&W
voices, Mr Turkey DJ credit again. 2325 song about Mexican farmers,
mentions several XE cities or states. 2328 QSL offer again; 2331
another ID and Happy TG. 2343 ID & Mr. Turkey, blues tune. 2352 gobble
only. 2356 a song I do recognize, `Great Pretender`. 2358 closing with
address, ``Happy Thanxgiving`` five times. Just a bit of `TROT`
alla-marcia theme, was a ``look-back at our inaugural broadcast``.
Susan concludes, ``Until next time, keep the wind at your back.``

Two or three times during this hour I also scanned the 6.9 MHz pirate
band, but no sign of Radio Ga-Ga which was also going to air this
special, which it was first to broadcast a year ago. Maybe it was
during previous hour. No other pirates heard either. Altho TRSW is
still a pirate of non-public provenance, now that it`s appearing on
non-pirate stations, pirate specialists seem to have lost interest in
it. 0000 WRMI switches 7570 to ``He Leadeth Me`` morphing into the
moanin` & groanin` hour of TOMBS: add to that: howlin` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, Sat Nov 28 at 2324, WWRB is on with S9+20/30 of dead
air; recheck at 2332 now a gospel huxter about going to hell (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Nov 29 about 0130 WTWW-2 with `Theater Organ
Under the Arch` in progress, so I listen on the $tereo webcast altho
some of the recordings are rather lo-fi; ends at 0154 so WTWW can get
back to inorganic ``Surfin` USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
