** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat July 10 at 1453 tune-in via
Pardinho, Brasil KiwiSDR, LRA36 underway with talk. I`m ``camping`` on
someone in Frankfurt/Main already tuned to 15476.00-USB. By 1522
they`re off and I`m on directly. Talk about Antarctica, saludos,
despedidas, 1523 theme song. But NOT off, 1526.4 starts other music as
I am distracted by FM DX chase in the car. 1620 recheck still on with
songs. 1630 headlines, music, ``Nacional Antártida Argentina, en todo
el país, la radio pública`` ID; 1651 contact info, talk about some
anniversary. Still past 1700, 1713 songs at S4-S5; 1723 closing
credits, 1724 themesong, 1727.5 more music, really running late today,
1749, or was it 1744 I scribbled, stops without formal sign-off, and
reduced carrier is also turned off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR0

** CUBA. 5025, July 10 at 0557, R. Rebelde is S9+20/30 but
undermodulated. Tuning up to 5040 for RHC I can`t read the meter
before it cuts off at 0557.5*. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, July 10 at 2248, RHC is S7-S8 but very undermodulated.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.943, July 10 at 0552, VON is on already with
undermodulated music. I also measured it on 7254.93, 15 months ago, so
its degree of offness quite steady and reliable. Whether this
transmitter be on air at all quite another matter (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2094 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 10 at 1300 on WRMI 15770, S8-S9 direct.

Also confirmed Sat July 10 at 1624 the 1600 on WRN webcast to NAm.

Also confirmed Sat July 10 from 1800:38 on IRRS 7290 via UTwente SDR,
4 seconds behind Italia AM 918 via Noale SDR. Altho presumably fed by
same studio playout, very different audio results. Good fi on 918 but
lower fi and rough on 7290, the latter also boosting my breaths as if
I were gasping every few seconds, while they are unnoticeable on
original recording and 918.

Earlier on 7290: 1749 tune-in just as Iran? ends but S7 warble on plus
side; LSB reads S5 with noise level, but trace of a carrier presumably
Chinese for a bit longer. 1759.8 JIP Aïda theme about a minute after
it had started on 918, brief IRRS sign-on, pause and WOR playback.

Earlier on 918: at 1757 UT, 6:00 timecheck by WUSB Stony Brook NY and
time for `Off the Wall`, but 1758.8 switch to ``Triumphal March from
Aïda`` theme of IRRS; steady S9+17 at near-local range. 918 WOR is
running about 4 seconds ahead of 7290 WOR via two different SDRs.

Over on both before 1830, into gospel huxter; then I check UTwente for
2nd harmonic on 14580 and can detect a trace of it.

Not confirmed Sat July 10 circa 1930 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO; checked
at 1955, the near local KB0FX KiwiSDR is offline! And none closer than
KS, IL or IN, which are not getting it in the daytime.

Confirmed Sat July 10 at new time 2000 on WRMI 15770, VG S9+10/15 into
Maine SDR; and S9-S7 into UTwente so this worx too for Europe.

I`ve not been checking every week but do so this time for the
webcast-only of WOR by NEXUS/IBA/IRRS/IPAR scheduled for Saturday 2330
via https://www.nexus.org/mp3/ --- There is still `Feature Story News
Week in Review` first from 2330.5, delaying WOR start until 2333.8.
Which means this always-29-minute program needs to play until 2402.8.
But the last few minutes are still chopped off: fades down to dead air
at 0000.4, comes back for a few sex, and then music fill which should
be totally disposable. I wish they would either put the FSN somewhere
else or let WOR play till finished. Next:

0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0400]

** U S A. 5950, Sat July 10 at 2200 I tune 5950 on the W8BUG SDR in
Knoxville-Oak Ridge which normally provides good reception of WRMI for
`Encore` classical music hour --- but nothin but noise so this WRMI
must be off. But at 2242 I check own rx and do get a JBA carrier. Back
to W8BUG: still nothing, and I do mean nothing showing on waterfall on
this or other bands. Must be disconnected. Title on webpage invites
contacts but I find no link to do it! Switch to another Kiwi in south
Georgia, and there is 5950 with Encore. Will have to catch the next
play at 0100 on 5850. Which I do, July 11, sufficient S9+20/30 via
Birmingham AL SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Sat July 10 at 2300, Georgia SDR is still running
after `Encore` when next on WRMI is `Your UFO Show`, evidently
something new. Described on RMI programming page that is simulcast on
WBCQ 7490; and so it is during the hour formerly known as `Radio
TimTron Worldwide`. I guess it`s gone since TT is ailing, too bad.
Out-of-date WBCQ sked still shows RTTW not YUFOS. Listened to a bit of
it: informal chat hoping people will call in (live?) with UFO tales,
but meanwhile he reads a recipe. Retune at 2325 to dead air but player
still running -- o, it was a pause for prayer: better watch out: some
stations sense silence and kick in fill music or something after a few
sex: but certainly not the ones with long dead air spans like most
recently KRVN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265V, July 10 at 0549, WINB is OFF --- now supposed to be
TOMBS at 0400-0700 daily per Overkiller website (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. (5085), UT Sunday July 11 at 0030, WTWW-2 ID with Star
Spangled Banner clip as produxion music, and `Theater Organ Under the
Arch` which I listen to on $ tereo webcast rather than distorted 5085.
As usual runs over a minute or two, as I am already retuning to 5850
remote for `Encore` from 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. MUF of 138 MHz on the DXMAP somewhere around Memphis, so
there ought to be some FM DX as I head to the car, July 10 after 1530.
Bandscanning 87.5-97.5 MHz turns up nothing unusual until 1557 on 96.5
I hear some religion unlikely from either Okie I think, but 1600 UT a
KECO Elk City ID which may or may not be from same. Fox `News` from
something until 1602, some other news; 1612 ad for a Kia dealer on
I-71 amid CCI. That`s something to go on: I-71 runs from Louisville KY
thru Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland OH. The only 96.5 station along
that route is in Lebanon OH, WFTK --- but I can`t correlate with a Kia
dealer there. O well (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
