** CUBA. 4747 & 4783 approx., Aug 26 at 0207, scratchy spurs from R.
Progreso 4765 are JBA into Bonaire SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Aug 26 at 0606, R. Rebelde is OFF! Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba. See also unID 10080 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 6179.950, Aug 26 at 0328, several La Voz Alegre IDs,
i.e. Madagascar World Voice in Spanish, S7-S9. Habitually
off-frequency elsewhere too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 13760, Aug 26 at 0338, pop music in English, gospel?
Soon starts plugging the Bible, S7-S9. MWV is scheduled here. They
have two totally different English programs, ``African Pathways
Radio`` and `relay` of KNLS New Life Station, Alaska. WRTH does not
specify which hours are which! Nor does Aoki. EiBi shows APR for this,
but also for the other 3 English broadcasts, no KNLS! HFCC shows 13760
is aimed 40 degrees for Asian CIRAFs, so that makes it NLS, not APR.
BTW, VOK also scheduled to start all-day usage of 13760 from 0300, and
whenever heard, not now, it`s been off-frequency about 13760.2. Did
not notice any offfrequenciness for this MWV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

WORLD OF RADIO 2100 monitoring: confirmed UT Thu Aug 26 at 0140 the
0130 on WRMI 5010, S9/+10 direct but vs high storm noise level. At
0152 via Bonaire SDR, VG S9/+15. WOR 2101 should be ready to start UT
Fri Aug 27 at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980 & 4975 & 5800, Aug 26 at 0607, WRMIs 4 & 10 are OFF,
two fewer frequencies for TOMBS. All other scheduled WRMI remain on
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, Aug 26 at 0613, no signal from WEWN English; also
missing a few hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4780v, Aug 26 at 0208, while checking the Progreso spur
circa 4783, via Bonaire SDR, I also detect a JBA carrier here, not a
known currently active SWBC frequency. Of course first comes to mind
DJIBOUTI, could it be reactivated? But old sign-on time was 0300. DBS
of April 2016 showed it last heard in Feb 2015. Last log of it I can
find was presumed by Harold Frodge, MI, MARE in the 21 and 22 UT hours
of December 2014.

4780 does not compute as a MW harmonic of any `even` frequency. We
recall that the 2020 WRTH, not 2021, listed some Future Plans in PERU,
including 4780: OAW7I, Calle Monjaspata 745, 08001 Cusco; no further
info and apparently never appeared, until now??

The carrier is somewhat unstable; could be a ute, but I think more
likely it`s a minus 10 kHz spur out of 4790 WBCQ. Bonaire SAM shows
carrier offset of +125/140 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10080, Aug 26 at 0605, JBA carrier as I am checking for
R. Vanuatu, 2 x 5040. Fundamental however is totally blocked by RHC at
S9+10, on air later than usual. However2, others report Vanuatu was
absent this date from 5040 or any other frequency. So probably another
RHC harmonic, where I`ve never logged it before for sure (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15770, Aug 26 at 0339, JBA carrier. Could it be WRMI-9
which supposedly runs 1100-0200 only? Yet per HFCC it`s registered
available 24 hours. Nothing else ever on frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK,
