** CANADA. 371-MCW kHz, Sept 18 at 0619 UT, JBA NDB dash and GW i.e.:
``371 GW CAN QC KUUJJUARAPIK 2000 55 17 5 -77 45 5`` - dxinfocentre.
A new one on me; wow, what a name! I wonder if the French Canadians
find it any more daunting than the English?

``Kuujjuarapik - Village in Qu├ębec, Canada --- Kuujjuarapik is the
southernmost northern village at the mouth of the Great Whale River on
the coast of Hudson Bay in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada. Almost 1000
people, mostly Cree, live in the adjacent village of Whapmagoostui.
The community is only accessible by air, Kuujjuarapik Airport and, in
late summer, by boat. Wikipedia`` Also seems the AP abbr is YGW, but
not in this callsign, no Y; just GW as in Great Whale. Each DX log a
potential learning experience. BTW, I do skip over a number of the
``regular`` beacons, not relogging them every time, but OTOH not
non-logging them either, once heard once (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, Sept 18 at 2047, S5-S7 African language, i.e. R.
Ndarason International in Kanuri via Woofferton at 1900-2100;
understation no doubt WEWN Spanish, not a good share for either; but
then neither is hardly targeting OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13835, Sept 18 at 1357-1400, CNR1 jammer known to be here,
vs RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan; but no others audible WOOB in the 14s,
13s, 12s, 11s or 10s. 13855 Chinese, OTOH is `legit` CRI via illegit
East Turkistan, land of Uyghur persecution (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 18 at 2044, no signal from RHC until cut/on unmod
S9+20 carrier at *2044.6. Supposed to be on already from 2000
Portuguese, 2030 Arabic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUINEA [and non]. 9650, Sept 18 at 2040, JBA carrier, could it be
RTG? Unheard for quite a while, maybe QRP or is its only SW frequency
kaput? It was reported Aug 13 at 1710 by DJM in the British DX Club.

Aoki/NDXC shows VOK in Japanese does not start 9650 until 2100. Use it
or lose it: 9650 is also one of the frequencies planned for WIPE, the
DRM/HF trading crypto pending in NJ, as per the drmnainfo blog:

``Frequencies are stated to be 9650, 11850, 13720 and 15450 kHz. Mode
is listed as DRM with emission designator 10K0G7W (which is consistent
with 10 kHz DRM).`` Depending on the timing, other WIPE frequencies
could conflict with Romania, Turkey, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Area tropo enhancement blob in NW OK up to Level 4, not
really extending to OKC, but only DX signal decoding via my broken
antenna is from there, Sept 18 at 0314 UT:

RF 21, KUOT, same PSIP on all subchannels tho real call is KUOT-CD:

21-1, bug in UR has a circle with arrow pointing straight down.
rabbit-ears says it`s Cornerstone
21-2, missing! r-e says should be IBN Television; what`s that?
21-3, 3ABN
21-4, no bug, Amazing Facts
21-5, Hope, UR bug with upstretched arms
All remain solid until dropping below decode level at 0333.

Meanwhile BAD DX signals showing: 10, 12, 20, 22, 28, 31, 32, 34, 36.

BTW, I`ve almost quit bandscanning above RF 37 due to progressive
repacking; but I see lots and lots of 38+ are still listed at
W9WI.com; do they really still exist? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Sept 18 at 2209, REE English VG at UTwente,
Alison with detailed critical reviews of `Don Quixote` music by Anton
Rubenstein --- finally, something about Spain, altho fantastical! DQ
finally plays at 2213, performed by Slovak Philharmonic (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

First broadcast confirmed UT Fri Sept 18 at 0130 on WRMIs direct: 5850
VG S9+30, >> 5010 S9+10 noisy.

Second broadcast confirmed Fri Sept 18 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair with
considerable jamming about same level at TWR Bonaire SDR. Atop but
jamming still audible at Pardinho, Brasil, and Rochester NY (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Sept 18 at 1451, no signal from WJHR; recheck at
2043 can`t decide if a trace of not. The SWBC station, or rather
glorified ham rig, most likely to have been blown away by Hurricane
Sally, Milton FL near Pensacola. Seldom audible anyway. It will be of
note if anyone definitely hear it again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN [non]. 15310, Sept 18 at 1452, VP S6-S7 talk about even
with noise level; also noted other days as OOFSOB [one of few signals
on band]. Aoki/NDXC shows this hour only it`s R Liberty in Uzbek via
Woofferton UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 18 at

but a few minutes later no longer so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13587-USB, Sept 18 at 1359, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
as I am futilely bandscanning for CNR1 jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
