** CANADA. 14670-CUSB, Sept 9 at 1413, CHU is on and audible, unlike
yesterday daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey Sept 9 at 1403: none higher than
11460 & 11440 & 10920 JBA carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11175-USB, Sept 9 at 1419, US military drill with
alfanumerix such as 4XQSQQU, same voice not only reverbing but offset
by a few seconds, with background noise. 1421 ``This is Toolbox,
out``. 1422, ``Rough Gym/Jim, this is Ironman, on 8992``! ``How copy
my station?`` -- no answer and this is still on 11175. At 1440
``Toolbox`` again on 11175-USB and now I also hear weaker 8992-USB,
but not on two receivers to confirm duplication. At 1510 also hearing
same thing on 15016-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 850, Sept 9 at 0629 UT, KOA Denver is on tonight in C2CAM
break. I notified NRC and IRCA that it seemed off the night before,
Sept 8 and also Sept 6; Paul Walker, Laramie WY, replied,

``No Glenn, incorrect. KOA has not been off at all and has been
operating as normal during the times you mention, according to a KOA
engineer I spoke to. AM conditions up here have been interesting
lately. I've had a few stations that should be strong be pretty weak
and I've heard stations I don't normally hear being present.``

I`m still not convinced; tho it is hard to prove a negative. ND 50 kW
KOA at under 500 miles is totally dominant here, yet I heard no trace
of it, when conditions were `normal` as far as I could tell ---
certainly no auroral blackout (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM. 9730, 7280, 7220, Sept 9 at 1600, VOV in English is still
on SW: first trying S Korea KiwiSDR, 9730 poor with lo het and Chinese
CCI; 7280 Chinese also mixing with VOV English; 7220 JBA English only.
Aoki/NDXC shows both 9730 & 7280 also with Sound of Hope from Taiwan
at this time, so jammed of course, Commies vs Commies! CRI in Russian
also sked at 16 on 9730, so it gets jammed too. Better frequency
management, such as avoiding China would make VOV more successful a SW

7280 always has a bigsig into UTwente splashing upon IRRS/WOR on 7290
Mondays at 1800, so how about now at 1600? Yes, VG S9+15 signal
without the CCCCCCI; 9730 is even better, S9+20 but with some hum,
AMSynch measuring it on 9729.947v; while 7220 on different beam is
poorly audible.

1615 into mailbag, with 75th anniversary congrats from Pakistanis;
NOTE! Says since September 1 these broadcasts are *temporarily* off
due to ``technical problems``: 7315 to eastern North America [WHRI],
and 12020 [sic] to Indonesia! 1621 music break, closing offering eQSL
for reports to englishsection@vov.vn 1627 dead air break before next

I did not get around to checking 12019- and 9839+ before they would
have finished total span scheduled 1000-1530.

Meanwhile, Tony Molloy forwards this VOV story which does not mention
anything about SW, boding ill:
``“Untold stories”, a special program marking 75th anniversary of
VOV's English Service --- Monday, September 7, 2020 | 12:42:00

(VOVWORLD) - The Voice of Vietnam national radio station started
broadcasting from Hanoi on September 7th, just 5 days after the
establishment of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist
Republic of Vietnam. The English program was among the first foreign
language programs broadcast overseas on that day. Since then,
September 7 has always been a great occasion to recall VOV’s history
and development...
