** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 31 at 1457-1558, periodic chex via
Brasil SDR find no signal from LRA36, despite having told Manuel
Méndez that their ``final`` broadcast of 2020y on Oct 28 would be
played back today starting at 1500. So then I go looking for Marconi
Radio International: see EUROPE. However, rechecking for RNASG at 1614
finds it has now come on, an hour late, at S5-S7; 1735 talking about
the pandemia; 1907 still on at S8-S9, ``ésta es una experiencia
inolvidable``, presumably wintering in Antarctica; reading several
greetings from listeners, or family? Altho quite a readable signal
now, just barely visible on the waterfall, less even than 15190
Inconfidência, much less than 15580 & 15730 VOA; 1910 song; 1911 IDs
in Spanish, German, English (that it`s in Spanish), and another,
sounds Korean but not a RAE language, on `Corazón Antártico` show..
2010 recheck still going with greetings; 2038 music; still past 2100.
Concludes at 2133-2137* with ``Antártida`` theme song and off without
further sign-off. Hard to copy lyrix but includes ``hielo, hielo, y
más hielo``. I recorded it and maybe will play it on WOR sometime? I
also go searching for it. There are two or three Antártida songs in
Spanish, but none match this one. Now may we say hasta luego, hasta el
otoño sur? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. 7720-USB, Oct 31 at *1559, Marconi Radio National comes on
for publicized 16-17 broadcast, VP S5-S6 via UTwente, first with IS
and IDs; 1601 YL gives address in English; then in Italian, German,
French; 1602 some music, 1605 Italian talk and I suspect the rest of
show will be in that language, anyhow too weak. Back to Antarctica
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUINEA. 9650, Oct 31 at 0614, hilife music and French talk, S4-S5,
presumed Conakry as recently reactivated. Have not heard them at later
dayparts nor seen many other reports, so wonder if active mornings
only. Manuel Méndez, Spain, who discovered them back Oct 27 until at
least 0905, says they cut off at 0737 Oct 28. Dave Kenny replied on
the WOR iog, ``Great to have Guinea back on SW. I first noted it back
on 9650 kHz at 1710 tune-in on Friday 23rd October, during the recent
Sheigra [Scotland] DXpedition``. Beware of North Korea on 9650, but
per Arnulf does not start until 0730, all in Japanese until 1317v and
also 2130-2417v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Oct 31 at 2357, SFX, 2358 countdown, Nov 1
at 0007 frenetic; 0042 still going but weaker. These say it`s Radio
It has been the only station audible here on this pirate band, despite
lots of others reported at HFU, as expected for Hallowe`en. In fact
Chris Gay in KY told the WOR iog he was getting 5 pirates in the 6900s
before 2130. This further reinforces my conclusion that the great
majority of these pirates are well east of the Mississippi, and for
some reason few of them like to run late into the night when
propagation further west might be better (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Oct 31 by 1600 UT, KUCO has solved its fibre-optic
feed problem and is back on air modulating as well as webcasting, in
time for `The Score`, one of my favorites, cinemusic. Perhaps they
should consider a backup setup, like a plain old 900-MHz STL
transmitter. Webcasting should not have been interrupted either (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SLOVENIA. 18130-USB, Oct 31 at 1450, S51DX calling QRZ and CQ:
per https://www.qrz.com/lookup/s51dx
``S51DX Slovenia flag Slovenia, JANEZ CELARC, Susnikova cesta 9, 1360
VRHNIKA, Slovenia`` --- Also refers us to his own:
Not much else on ``17`` m. Call seems familiar. Yes! I had logged him
in *2014y* on 10m: ``SLOVENIA. 28505.6-USB, March 28 at 1434, QRZ and
CQ from S51DX, almost-American accent...`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

October 31 at 1317 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, VP S7-S8.

Also confirmed Sat Oct 31 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, good S8/S9+10 via

confirmed, just various ham news shows at chex: 0325, 0345, 0355,
0405, 0428 when it`s TWIAR. 0455 still no WOR when I QRT. Possibly it
played early and already finished by 0325. Next:

Sky` song apropos for H`we`en but really the occasional GRITS show.

6159.92v, Nov 1 at 0200 via Virginia SDR, Area 51 starting Hallowe`en
special from Texas Radio Shortwave via WBCQ, S9+10/20 and -78v Hz
carrier offset from 6160.000. Mostly unfamiliar spooky music, with a
few synthetic YL announcements; 0202 song ``Queen of Hallowe`en``;
0207 a scream; 0216 QSL offer, or ``you may get nothing since it`s
Hallowe`en``; 0225 bell tolls, etc. 0259 ending with Bach. Tnx for the
show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
