** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, Nov 21 at 0257 WRMI with VP music, 0259
chirping, no NA, no Radio Tirana IS, 0259.5 ``Everglades`` ID. I was
expecting the second RT relay of the day to be at 0230, as on the WRMI
*frequency* schedule for 9395; but on the *program* schedule below,
System G is shown with Oldies at 9:30 pm ET on 9395 (if also applying
from the line above for RAE at 9:00 pm). R Tirana remains displayed on
System H 9395 at 0130 UT Mon/Tue/Wed/Fri/Sat, bumped by `This is a
Music Show` on UT Thu at 0130-0230. I need to monitor other days
whether RT (or its own music fill) really be on at 0130 (Glenn Hauser,

** TURKEY. 5960.0, Nov 20 at 2333, VOT English to North America is
axually on today, music but VP, undermodulated; and furthermore, off
by 2355 recheck instead of bleibing for German, audiblizing the 5960-
JBA carrier from East Turkistan, land of Uyghur brainwashing by the
ChiCom (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2008 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November
20 from 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490.1v but JBA --- and 9330 has been on
testing since at least 1907, so I check it too --- and here`s WORLD OF
RADIO! But starting about 30 seconds later circa 2200:50, VG about
S9+40 tnx to the 500 kW transmitter, finally, but not expected to

Also confirmed UT Thu Nov 21 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S9/+10.

Next edition WOR 2009 expected to première Friday Nov 22 at 2300 on
WRMI 9955; UT Sat Nov 23 at 0130 on WRMIs 5010, 5850, 7780 (Glenn

** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 20 at 1907, WBCQ-6 is already on with big 500
kW signal, S9+30 with folk music, ``Good Morning, America``; 2200:50
with WORLD OF RADIO, finally getting a chance on the SuperStation as
now it`s simulcasting whatever be on 7490; see separate WOR report.

9330 not checked again until 2355 when it`s hitting S9+50! with rock
music; is it // 7490+v now? JBA too weak to tell. 2356 quick Japanese
announcement, and novelty C&W song ``Marijuana, the Devil`s Flower``.
2359.5 it`s `Radio TimTron WorldWide` at half-way mark, another hour
to come ``on the big signal`` --- so maybe he`s live as a benefit of
getting this thing operational again. And not scheduled now on 7490.

At 0002 Nov 21 however, suddenly dead air, canned ID, start to play
sign-off theme, but 0003 various tone tests, and back to music. Seems
to be mostly novelty tunes for the rest of the hour, including until
0037 ``Sitting on My Face``. By 0058 has faded to only S9, running
past 0101 with more novelty music, off-key singing; and TT closes with
credit to FARTS. By 0102 has joined another program, M&W talkshow
about the Epstein suicide ``down there`` --- yes, it must be `Just
Right` which originates in Ontario and is scheduled 0000-0130 on 7490
which is still JBA preventing definite match. Only last third here.
Mainly it`s two guys but the woman must be Danielle Metz who has her
own related show. See

9330 not checked again until 0256 UT Thu Nov 21, now in another talk
show, about Ukraine; not // 7490 which is more audible, or rather it
is // but not synchronized with 9330 as usual running about 30 seconds
behind in convoluted hookup, so it`s Hal Turner who on UT Thu only,
gets two hours on 7490; and also on WRMI 9455, which I quickly check
at 0300 to hear him ID for WBCQ (only!). Right back to 9330, which is
also running somewhat behind 9455. At 0301 he starts to play a version
of the Star Spangled Banner, OK at first but then morphs into a
hard-rock version to a different tune -- a Hal Turner monstrosity, I

All these WBCQ shows on 9330 must be classified only as tests, not to
recur; so where`s World`s Last Chance? No hurry! WBCQ websked alleges
WLC is daily 2030-0300, surely an approximation, and nothing else on
9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
