** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 13 at 1329-1332: 12820 best in
Chinese, weaker 13020, JBA carriers on 13160, 12500; only one in the
10-11s is 10960, S6-S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157, 7215, 7335, 7435, Aug 13 at 0605, noise jamming all
against nothing, no hams to be heard around the first two, no OCB on
the other two. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming
Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Aug 13 at 2010, RHC with S8-S9 of dead air instead of
scheduled Portuguese; but 15140 is funxional in French. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 1300, Aug 13 at 0618 UT, ``Radio Mexicana, Nuestras
Noticias``, but not news right now, back to Mexmx. Per IRCA Log, that
is the official station slogan of XEP, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua,
claims 40 kW power. Dominating the frequency here, never mind Tulsa
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. As I first post this more than a semihour
before, a reminder that FRSH, Free Radio Service Holland is getting an

** U S A. 9329.986, Aug 13 at 0610, WBCQ S7-S9 in Spanish, presumed
WLCR. Pretty good signal now if only 5 kW as Ivo says, but not 500 kW
again yet. And only 14 Hz off-frequency! WBCQ own schedule does not
show which languages at which times, but Aoki says Spanish at
0600-0757. This could be a CCI problem for Cuban Spy Numbers after
0700. However, HFCC claims this bihour be in English, only 250 kW at
280 degrees not toward any SS-land; while Spanish at other hours
should be on 76, 180 or 220 azimuths (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Aug 14 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`,
the whole show a conversation between Allan and `Pirate Joe`, J.P.
Ferraro on the phone --- -9180 line is hummy so change to -0982. We
hardly hear a word from Angela altho she still gets top billing. The
guys are reminiscing on the 50th anniversary of Aug 12, 1971, when
their first pirate radio stations were busted by the FCC. Do you
remember this? that? Back and forth. A lot of details I don`t try to
copy. They had been on the air since 1969 in Yonkers NY, first on MW
1620 when the band ended at 1600; then to FM 108.1 but soon 87.9 to
avoid causing any QRM. 50 watts power carried a lot further on FM than
on AM with no ground plane. Mentioned calls briefly: WFSR-AM as in
Falling Star Radio or Free Speech Radio; WSEX-FM; WKOV-AM and one more
I missed.

Finally down to business at 0055 about the axual FCC raid. The Feds
visited Allan`s place at 5 am, and JP`s at 8 am on the same day. They
let the air out of one tire of JP`s 1953 Plymouth so he couldn`t flee.
The two were handcuffed together, spent a few hours in jail along with
rapists, who avoided them once they said they were in for pirate
radio. Pled guilty of federal misdemeanors, violating Communications
Act of 1934; Allan`s dad, a lawyer, bailed them out. Got probation for
one year, no fines: these are the roots of WBCQ. They do never get to
later pirate activities long before WBCQ and WHVW would be licensed.

Update on the SuperStition: still waiting for replacement PA tube,
meanwhile on unspecified low-power backup. 0059 prayer, 0101 join Hal
Turner late as seems to be the case every week now. John Carver`s

``Tonight's show started on time on 6160 and 7490. Allan later
announced they were also broadcasting on 3265 and 4790. Allan and
Angela in the studio. Opening talk about the heat in Northern
Maine-ninety degrees today. Some more talk about Angela's affinity for
the small wild animals around the station. Main topic of tonight's
show is to be free radio and Allan starts with the history of his
first pirate stations when he was a boy. Pirate Joe is to join him on
the phone for the talk. Phone call at 0010 has problems with the audio
so Allan has him call in on another line. The two of them start to
talk of their early radio stations as yesterday was the fiftieth
anniversary of the FCC raid that shut them down. Noise starts to come
up around 0018 making it difficult to copy as the volume on the phone
is so low it's difficult to hear Pirate Joe. They talk about their
first meeting and the early days of their pirate stations. Signal
covered over by some sort of noise around 0040 that just gets worse.
Can't copy a thing. The same noise is on 6160 and 4790. I go back to
7490 and listen to the rest of the show but all I can hear is noise.
Sorry. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Aug 13 at 2003 check, this WRMI is still off (Glenn
