** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 22 from 1343: 13835, 12880, 12820
S5-S7 flutter, 12550, 12230 S6-S7 w/CODAR, > 12210, < 12190, 11460,
11440, 11150, 11120, 11100, 11070, 10960; 9215 S4-S6, 9200 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 22 at 2300, no signal from anonymous
missionary station into TWR Bonaire SDR. Early on, someone caught them
signing on at this hour, with third verse of Colombian national
anthem. Still nothing Sept 23 at 0045 at SDRs in Colombia, DR. So
missing for third night in a row; test phase over, and now what? Have
the S American DX groups come up with anything definite about true
transmitter location and even a name for it if never uttered? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. RHC spurblob survey, Sept 22 at 2200 out of 13740 S9+25:
13675 S6-S7; 13610 S5; 13806 S4-S5; at 65-66 kHz intervals; next one
at 13870 blocked by strong RTTY S9+25. Something`s always wrong at
RHC; but there were none circa 1400 out of 13700 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GUAM. 15685, Sept 22 at 2205, S4-S6 of Vietnamese talk; modulation
seems irregular, surging/slightly distorted. Is KSDA at 22-23 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 267-MCW kHz, Sept 22 at 0622 UT, ND beacon HET, 25 watts
at Henryetta; heard before, but rarely. This encourages me to search
out *all* the OK beacons listed at dxinfocentre.com as a checklist for
me, with quite a few I have never heard, and wonder if really on the
air as I do hear 25-watters out-of-state; two of these from adjacent
states, transmitter sites apparently across in OK; with watts:

201 BV Bartlesville - Dewey 25;
255 SW Stillwater - Blaki 25;
267 HET Henryetta 25;
275 GUY Guymon 25;
278 SRE Seminole 25;
311 GK Fort Smith AR - Peno Bottoms 25;
323 HHW Hugo 25;
338 TU Tulsa 30;
341 EI Enid - Garfy 25;
350 RG Oklahoma City - Gally 400;
362 OWP Sand springs - William Pogue 25;
383 LB Liberal KS - Panck 25;
388 OFZ Fort Sill - Trail 30;
388 OK Okmulgee - Preston 25;
393 BZ Burns Flat - Foss 25 - back on;
400 AI Ardmore 30;
425 PFL Fort Sill - Post 25;
512 HMY Lexington - Muldrow 25 - back on;
515 PN Ponca City 25

I wish those copying my reports would keep lists like this on separate
lines; if not, insert semicolons at I have done this time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Tue Sept 22 at 2214, VOT VG this time S9/+20 direct
and no NSS RTTY audible, off already? Ending `Review of Foreign
Media`; then the multi-lingual ID reel time-filler which lasts 110
seconds. Next time I should count how many different IDs there be, as
I suspect some are in there which are not really on VOT SW now, maybe
webcast, such as Portuguese which is not among only 24 in the WRTH
2020. Also heard ``Burasi ---`` more than once, which is Turkish, but
must also apply to related dialects. If there are really 24, they
would average 4.6 seconds each. Next item at 2217, `Water Culture in
Anatolia` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, Tue Sept 22 at 2210, WRMI-6 with discussion of
far-right conspiracy theories about antifa, BLM leading to a communist
revolution in America --- taking them seriously! More Alex Jones? No,
the host is Bob Biermann, who has quietly started a second show on
WRMI besides his low-key musings on `Your Weekend Show` but in keeping
with his rightward leanings; now it`s high-key politix, on skedgrid as
`Truth 2 Ponder` this hour only Mon-Fri. And on the programming
page:

``On Monday, August 31st, a new Radio Show and Podcast called “Truth
to Ponder” begins. It all kicks off at 6:00 PM Eastern Time, and is
hosted by Bob Biermann, who is also host of “Your Weekend Show.”

We certainly live in a time the likes of which we have never seen
before. Today, separating truth from fiction and fake from real is not
always easy. From the Pandemic to Politics, to Tech Tyranny and
overreaching control, Bob Biermann and a group of talented and
experienced individuals will sort through today’s news, and present
“Truth to Ponder.”

9395 KHz at 6:00 PM Eastern Time Monday-Friday
9455 KHz at 10:00 PM Eastern Time Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
Additional Airings on a West Beam
5850 KHz 10:00 PM EST [sic] Monday & Tuesday``
What did someone say about broadcasts containing ``truth``?

** U S A. 9955, Tue Sept 22 at 2218, Radio EmmaToc on WRMI with a
Radio Caroline clip, S9+25/30 with some jamming audible only at fades.
I suppose this qualify as a `media program` so will add to my
DX/SWL/Media Program schedule. WRMI programming claims it is a
*monthly half-hour*, but grid shows a full hour at 2200-2300; need to
check what`s really on at 2230. And other times not confirmed lately:
UT Thu 0000-0030 on 9955, and UT Mon 0100-0200 on 9455. I guess a
monthly hour or semihour repeated for 4 weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9980, Sept 22 at 2219, WWCR Brother Scare is quite weak,
only S7-S9, while another WWCR is blasting in BS, S9+35 on 9350. Both
supposedly 100 kW; 9980 #4 at 90 degrees, 9350 #2 at 85 degrees, so
they should be the same here, and 9980 often blasts in too, until
2400. Could the current MUF lie between 9350 and 9980? Unlikely. Must
be something else, like reduced power (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 22 at
0613-0620: 531, 558, 603, 612, 621, 684, 711, 747, 774(2), 837,
*846(TP), 855(2), 882(2), 936(2), 1098(2), 1107(2), 1116(2), 1305(2),
1413, 1503(2), 1575; 1710(2-domestic) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
