** CUBA. 9885 and 9805, Oct 26 at 0543, lite pulse jamming against
nothing; 9805 is an ex-Martí frequency but never at this hour, and
9885 is currently VOA French to Africa via Vatican, unheard.
Something`s always wrong at the Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR) Date correct, omitted from previous report

** OKLAHOMA. Except for a split-second glitch, we haven`t yet lost
power in this part of Enid, unlike 4 to 6 thousand other OG&E
customers; but circa 2300 UT Oct 27, my main 100-foot longwire antenna
for the R75 is broken and on the ground under tree debris felled by
severe ice storm. With a lot of icing on it, had been supported by
three trees in a row; and before that the last segment was already
down; once warmed up and cleared, fixing it or replacing it is not a
very big job, but I am so sad for our poor trees! Meanwhile I can
still try to use it, or switch to ``indoor longwire`` strung around
the ceilings of two rooms. A third wave of freezing rain is on the way
from El Paso (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [and non]. 4764, Oct 28 at 0002, VP signal from presumed Radio
Huanta 2000, before Cuba sometimes start Progreso at 0030 on 4765, tnx
to tip from LOB in Brasil who was getting it a few minutes earlier,
and has not been active every night. I`m listening via a remote not
far from him which is getting it better than another remote which is
closer to Perú. To boot, it also gets a weaker het/carrier from 4765
and it`s still not Cuba. Must be TAJIKISTAN which per EiBi, not Aoki,
comes on at 2259. Here direct at 0017 via broken wire, I only have JBA
carrier on 4764 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Oct 27 at 2124, VOA rock music S9+30, as
B-season-only hour in English via Grimesland has resumed, 250 kW due
east and thus also with a bigsig opposite off the back at ideal skip
distance. This also means that on Fridays at 2105-2200 we may again
easily hear `Music Time in Africa` unlike in the A-seasons when the
only SW frequency is JBA 15580 Botswana --- and I bet hostess hyper
Heather is still unaware of this outsending. Now if I can only
remember, at an inconvenient time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 12075, Oct 27 at 2112, S9+10 English lesson for French
about buying shoes: it`s VOA, 100 kW, 350 degrees via BOTSWANA M-F at
2100-2130, and followed by Bambara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2057 monitoring, next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?] [NEW]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** VENEZUELA. 6905.930v-RCUSB, Oct 28 at 0057 via TWR Bonaire SDR,
peppy tropical tunes mostly vocal at S6-S7. At 0100 a 5+1 timesignal
which must be crosstalk from something, mixing with continuing music.
0105 automated timecheck for 9:04, and others are consistently one
minute slow. Canned IDs of 3 or 4 varieties play between every 2 or 3
songs, None mentioning Venezuela 93.7 nor the next station to be
relayed, LV del Tigre 980 --- just ``ROCV, 6906``. At 0111, grandiose
``transmitiendo a nivel mundial`` and contact info for reports too
rapid for me to copy and I`m as usual not recording, seeming e-mail,
phone, postal? ``Sus reportes son importante para nosotros`` but not
explicitly promising any QSL. 0119 another ID, etc., etc., and 0204
again the one with contact info (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


Right-wing U.S. Christians have engineered an almost parallel version
of the faith, writes Michael Coren · for CBC News Opinion · Posted:
Oct 27, 2020 4:00 AM ET |

...One of the ironies of the United States is that a country that so
roars about the concept of the separation of church and state has a
political system so drenched in religiosity. The divinity's followers
vote in enormous numbers and many U.S. politicians are genuine
believers, whatever their party allegiance.

And then there is Donald Trump. Even though he won the support of more
than 80 per cent of white evangelicals in 2016 and is still highly
popular with Christians of many denominations, there's little sign
that he's an authentic person of faith. His personal behaviour is
unusual for someone who says he is a Christian, and his policies
routinely appear to be the antithesis of the Gospel values of peace,
love, and justice...
