** CHINA. 11100, Sept 20 at 1359, CNR1 jammer JBA, only one found in
very quick pre-1400* scan, no others WOOB in the 13s, 12s, 11s, 10s. I
continue to see list-logs of these elsewhere as if they were the
targeted Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. Partial check for clandestine jumparound frequency
carriers of VOH/VOP, Sept 20 at 1358: 3480, 3910, 3930, 3985, 4450
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 650, Sept 20 at 1202, Radio 65, XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa
full ID/sign-on? Touting 200-meter tower, presumably for FM, and how
it exploits Hertzian waves. LSR now 1218, so still audible at 1222,
hymn in Spanish with tuba oompahs, rather than newscast since it`s
Sunday. OtherMexes still audible on 640, 700, 710, and:

730, Sept 20 at 1221, Parral mentioned in some kind of promotion, so
XEHB, Chihuahua, probably already on 50 kW day power (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1360, Sept 20 at 0453-0501 UT, toward end of another WNJC NJ
DX test, I listen closely tuned to 1361-USB for any sign of tones,
sweeps or Morse IDs, but nada. By 0500 I switch back to 1360 in time
to hear a Sioux City ID from KSCJ, bong and CBS news --- the dominant
station here and one of only three with as much night power as 5 kW,
altho direxional, the others residing in CT and OR (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 20 at 0601,
starting downward from 846 which must be the lone TP, from Kiritimati,
then upward, so here not in the order heard: 531, 549, 558(2), 576,
612*, 621(2), 639(2), 657, 666, 747, 774(2), 801, 837*, 846, 855(2),
891, 936, 1089, 1098(2), 1125(2), 1134(2), 1179, 1215(2), 1224,
1305(2), 1503, 1629***, 1710(2 - domestic). * = strongest; (2) at
least two carriers beating, at a wide variety of pitches or SAH rates,
but obvious when tuned 1 kHz below on USB. I`m surprised that no one
else seems to do this.

***the 1629 carrier is especially intriguing; usually I don`t even
bother to continue 9-kHz scans across the x-band for TAs, as WRTH
stops at 1611; but there are countless Europirates beyond its scope,
and presumably low-powered. For example, Roberto Pavanello, Italy
recently logged: ``1629 14/9 22.10 R. Toulouse - Dutch MX suff.``
In British DX Club Communication, Axel Röse in Neuss, Germany had a
couple of daytime logs in August on 1629 of ``Z[ender?] Monza, D``, I
guess meaning Dutch land, or Dutch language? rather than German.

A different story for Australia, tho it`s a bit too early yet; WRTH
page 88 shows eight legal LPs on 1629, maximum 400 watts, and these
sometimes do make it to the west coast DXers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 20 at
1152-1158 UT before LSR here of 1218 UT, on the E-W longwire so no
DFing, could be both E Asia and Down Under: 558, 594, 603, 612(2),
657, 693, 729, 738, 747(2), 756, 765, 774, 819, 873, 945, 972*, 1017,
1035, 1044, 1089, 1098(2), 1107, 1125, 1161, 1323. * = strongest,
likely Korea South. I really miss the top-MW 2850 signal now off from
Korea North. I do get carriers circa 1230 on 3250, 3320 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 20 at 1228, a dekaminute after sunrise here,
considerable S5-S7 carrier above S5 noise level, but no modible.
Perhaps Ron Howard will have noted which of Bougainville and Indonesia
were active today, or both (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13855, Sept 20 at 1359, open carrier as heard yesterday
at 2113, likely intracontinental, now with trace of CRI under (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
