** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Nov 29 from 2316, mostly weak Chinese
language: 6865 S6-S7; 6850 S7-S9; 7810 S7-S8; 9180; 9200; 9215 to
2325. I also tuned the entire 8 MHz band, but not the 7 MHz band where
there might be non-jammer Chinese. All these check out in Aoki/NDXC as
CNR1 jammer channels against Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Nov 30 at 0344 check, anonymous mystery missionary
station just now at this odd time commencing another regular feature,
`Lecciones de la Historia`, good S9 into Bonaire SDR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 6185, Nov 30 at 0439, NHK Warudo Radio Japan news in
English atop fast SAH from poor XEPPM which is always offset-minus,
but hardly any of its modulation penetrating. NHK relay via AUSTRIA as
tipped by Ivo Ivanov, has just moved here from 6155 for the M-F 0430
and S/S 0500 English semihour, ND 300 kW for W Europe but which would
reach us sufficiently if on a clear frequency, but NHK does not want
us North Americans as an audience. XEPPM is only 1 kW? Also blocked at
earlier 0420 check with AWR in Turkish altho supposedly toward Turkey.
Meanwhile I hear nothing on 6155; surely they did not move to avoid
6159.9v WBCQ over there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6770, Nov 29 at 2318, JBA talk, S6-S7, presumed the
Old Time Radio pirate -- not heard in ages despite occasional chex
this far below the main pirate band. Tnx to new tip today:

``[WOR] Old Time Radio (pirate) 6770 AM 1348 UTC 29 Nov 2020 --- Not a
bad signal this morning, SIO 333 to peaks of 444.

** OKLAHOMA. Circa 9 MHz as I am bandscanning, Nov 29 at 2324 wideband
RF noise burst for a few seconds as my nearest streetlight is
igniting, confirmed by peeking out the window. Fortunately the noise
abates once it`s fully bright, not adding to the high line noise level
continuing. LSS today 2317 UT with clear sky at western horizon, so it
sets off +7 minutes later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8501-USB, Nov 29 at 2323, marine weather e.g. for 45N/78W
location, robom overmodulated distorted on S9+25 peak signal. EiBi
shows NMG USCG New Orleans at 2315-2350 on 8502. Pretty sure I read
frequency correctly, so? If they would just back off the modulation
level. Very poor image for the USCG as anyham would do better with her
SSB rig (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2062 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday November 30 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good to the ATS-909 portable
but some deep fades.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 30 at 0130 & 0230 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+15 to
UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 30 at 0230 on WRMI 5800, S9+15/20 to Bonaire
SDR. Also almost synchro on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 30 from 0401:06 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.9,
G S9+15 to Warrenton MO SDR after finding zero signals to Rochester &
Alexandria, too close for skip. At 0355, before he gotta go, JL was
doing a parody commercial about semen as a treatment for COVID, rather
poor taste. At 0418 I found 6159.9 direct VP S7-S8.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 30 after 0430 on WRMI 9955, under Cuban
pulse jamming at 0444, while earlier during Prague at 0419 it was
S9+10 over PJ. Next:

1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
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
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 5950, Nov 29 at 2312, something barely audible tho reading
S7-S9 vs HNL, can it really be WRMI? On 5800 with SMTV it`s S9+25
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6906v, Nov 30 at 0345, ROCV is still gone, no trace even
on H2Ofall of a signal into Bonaire SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
