** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 22 at various chex 0056/0400 on TWR Bonaire SDR, no signal
again tonight from anonymous missionary station (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9865, Sept 21 at 2341, Asian? music, S7-S6 with flutter up/down in
strength and also sidewise in frequency, i.e. Doppler from near trans-polar path. Could
AIR Vividh Bharati service be back? No, it`s CRI Chinese via Urumqi, land of Chicom
imperialist brainwashing of native Uyghurs, scheduled this hour, and Bengaluru not
until later if at all.

[non]. 7295, Sept 21 at 2355 YL song, then Chinese announcement over, S8/S9+10, and by
golly it`s // 9865. This too is CRI but via MALI just about to end its broadcast day
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.923, Sept 22 at 0241, JBA carrier, no doubt RNM always off-minus,
now that WRMI has finished with 5010 at 0230* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4000-USB, Sept 22 at 0005, AAR5ED calling AAR5EZ, in a MARS net on a
frequency barely outside the ham band as long as there is no LSB like the hams. I
suppose a ham could really use 4000-LSB. More traffic and weak contacts follow, lingo
like ``wilco``. Googling on call AAR5EZ, I get no significant hits; on AAR5ED I get
nine, two of which lead to my own significant previous log of *2017y*:

``5394.5-USB, Feb 23 at 1351, MARS net with abbr`d calls 5AP, 5BR, 5PM/T, and finally
a full call AAR5ED but unheard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8764-USB, Sept 21 at 2344, Tropical Depression Beta marine weather info, but
you better know your geographic coördinates to make any sense of it. Almost the only
voice to be heard in this entire MHz. EiBi shows this is NMG, USCG New Orleans until
2350.

8502-USB, Sept 21 at 2349, marine weather for Bahamas, North Atlantic coördinates, but
exactly same synthom voice as on 8764, to which I compare it -- by golly, they are //
within a reverb or maybe less with different DSP on two receivers, also NMG? No this
one is NMN, USCG Chesapeake VA, also until 2350, now both stations re Atlantic. I
didn`t realize different USCG sites were linked for simulcasts, as each would have its
own prime coverage area. 8502 is slightly weaker, S9+10 vs 8764 at S9+20; and both
with some overmodulation distortion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2052 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday September 22 at 0100 on
WRMI 7780, VG S9+20 at Virginia SDR; earlier check direct at 0050 was S8/+10.

Also confirmed UT Tue Sept 22 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG S9+20 at Bonaire; I listen to
whole thing in background and it is not interrupted at 0350 like happened last week.
