** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 19 at 0245, good via TWR Bonaire SDR,
anonymous missionary station with nice tropical music seemingly
secular enough, but merely some relief as long-winded Spanish gospel
huxter resumes at 0250 citing Ezekiel XL et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9470, Sept 19 at 0122, American English
discussion, must be CRI, S7-S9 with flutter, and // 9580 much stronger
and steadier CUBA relay, of which 9470 is a few words ahead. Yes, it`s
via Kashgar this hour only, land of ChiCom imperialist persecution,
brainwashing/re-education of native Uyghurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Sept 19 at 0000, after a brief tone, some
CW too weak to read but presumed Radio Nova ID, as per tip from FRN
via Harold Frodge that it would broadcast now.

I`m listening via a Rochester remote as on short notice I am just
getting ready for AAAWWW on WBCQs. It`s really too weak to make much
of, might have been better had I fished around other SDRs or even
turned on an own radio; 0042 still going with music, slightly
stronger, off by 0050. Several more logs with playlists:

One more log says it was on 6930-USB by 0104 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, Sept 19 at 0125, piano jazz at S9/+10, a
better signal here than I am getting from WRMI 7780 after 0130. 0131.5
YL ID as Ballsmacker Radio, tenpins SFX; mostly music but periodic
IDs, 0143 something about ``good old - kHz AM``. Still going at 0205
as ``9 PM Eastern [sic]`` and ID; 0238 still on music down to S7-S8.
Many more logs, all-Elton John, here from 0058 to 0252*:

** SPAIN. PS to previous report of 9690, REE English, Sept 18,
starting Anton Rubinstein`s `Don Quixote` at 2313: Chopped off
abruptly for 2230 timesignal, end of transmission; that`s 17 minutes:
here`s that very performance, lasting over 21 minutes; come on,
Alison!

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat Sept 19 at 0000, first monitoring webcast, WBCQ
has A&A conversing before the WTO theme plays for `AAAWWW`; almost
immediately interrupted by phone call from annoying Freddy, a good
excuse to tune out. Recheck at 0022, Freddy is just now being let go!
Whew. Allan then says he has been working on rebuilding #1
transmitter; the one donated by WRMI, just waiting for Tim Tron to
come up from Skowhegan and put the finishing tuneups on it. TT seems
putting off coming to Monticello, despite low COVID-19 rate there. I
think AW said or implied it`s the #3 transmitter which is currently on
7490, but also mentioned a #2. I wish we had a clear roster of all six
WBCQ SW transmitters, by number and which frequency they occupy. Has
the ex-WRMI unit hauled from FL last year, ever been on the air yet at
WBCQ? All except the 500 kW, i.e. ``classic WBCQ`` have to be rewired
for single-phase power. At 0030 A&A get into discussing conspiracy
theories, this week coming off a bit milder. Now I check the other
frequencies at Rochester remotes: 5130 is S7-S8; 3265 nothing; 6159.9
is S9; 7490 no signal! 9330 WLCR in Portuguese is S6-S7. ``Biden can`t
win since he`s partially demented``. O yeah? 0050 about an hour late,
word arrives that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. On his best
behavior AW does not denounce her as a socialist/communist, but ``may
she be reunited with our lord and savior in heaven; RIP``. Wait a
minute, she`s Jewish! But so was AW, originally, so he should know the
difference. Before they finish at 0100, I check Alexandria VA SDR for
7490 and it`s OK there, S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6970-AM, Sept 19 at 0238, JBA carrier while I am still
getting Ballsmacker on much stronger 6960; another pirate? None
reported in HFU but is also a Sound of Hope frequency, so maybe CNR1
jamming but would have to be from far west China possibly to
propagate. Seems there has also been a mixing product reported here,
Cuba? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
