** CANADA. 278-MCW kHz, 0625 UT Sept 15, JBA, dash and ND beacon NM,
500 watts from Matagami, Québec; new for me? Not quite, last logged:

``278 kHz, Dec 14 [2018] at 0717, beacon NM and dash: 500 watts from
Matagami, Quebec. Matagami is in a remote off-road area near 78 W/50
N, NNE of Rouyn-Noranda.``

Value-added info to this log per Wikipedia: ``Toponymy --- In Cree,
"matagami" means "meeting of waters", in reference to the large rivers
that join.`` And the town exists because of a zinc+ mine.

Interesting that its neighbor at DXinfocentre.com is at almost the
same latitude in SK within 16 seconds; no sign of that now:

278 N1 CAN SK Assiniboia 200 49 43 42 -105 56 57
278 NM CAN QC MATAGAMI 500 49 43 26 -77 44 30

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 15 at 1417: none in the 13s or 12s;
at 1419, JBA or JBA carriers on 11150, 11120, 11100, 10920 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 4940-, Sept 15 at 0134 via TWR Bonaire KiwiSDR, anonymous
missionary station with M&W talk in Spanish only, reads S4-S5 in USB
reception, but S8-S9 in SynchAM, carrier offset varying from -2.8 to
-6.1 Hz. 0200 it`s peaking S9+15 at -4.3 to -4.6 Hz, protracted sermon
about Apocalipsis = Revelation. 0311 tropical music. 0356 yelling
preacher in echoey venue, with music. Outro program with club para
niños, addresses: Apartado 260, San José, 2120, Costa Rica, or
Historia Preferida, Casilla 14-23, Cochabamba, Bolivia; 0359 NO ID,
into songs; 0455 still/again music with automated? timecheck as 12:54,
0458 preacher, still past 0527. That`s UT-4 while Colombia is UT-5.
Others also report such timechex; this implies 4940 is for Venezuela
if not from inside that country. Of course they had been heard playing
part of the Colombian national anthem at *2300; but that could be
misdirexion. I posted to the WOR iog:

``OK, since the perpetrators are mum about what and where this station
really is, it`s about time to get on it with the TDOA direxion-finding
technique, triangulation or multiangulation using remote receivers.
First place to rule in or out is Puerto LLeras, which is in central
Colombia, SE of Bogotá, where 6010 & 5910 were located. Let us know
your results first!`` --- I myself have never tried this
Timed-Delay-Of-Arrival technique, and am not familiar with the
procedure, but others in our group have in other cases; yet no
replies, so far (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. Correcting WOR 2051 monitoring report of IRRS 7290,
Iran is on 7300 of course, not 7290; I did it again! Fixed:
...Again this week no 7291 warble, hope gone for good, but always
annoying inevitable splash from 7280 Vietnam and 7300 Iran; the latter
should be off after 1820... (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
September 15 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG S9+10/20 at Bonaire SDR; but
recheck 0350 just in time to hear me cut off at 0350:40 for two IDs in
Spanish by Rudy and some Mexican, then fill music starting with a
version of ``Chariots of Fire``. I quickly asked WRMI to look into
this anomaly and prevent it from happening again. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
