** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 1 at 1452, another week, another
Wednesday, with no signal from LRA36 into Brasil SDR. Could the
`season` be over? It was last heard Sunday August 8 concluding a
5-day-straight `marathon`, after which they made excuses due to
weather. Will keep checking at least on Wed and Sat around this time
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Sept 1 at 0129, S9 of dead air from RHC, where
something is always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 1 at 0629, RHC English is still on here; normally
turns off by 0600. The rest of The Cuban Five are also running late:
6060 undermodulated with somehum but not a lot of buzz; 6100 VG S9+20;
6165 undermod, all in English, and 5040 in music, Spanish service.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, Sept 1 at 0637, huge S9+20 open carrier. RFI is
scheduled at 0400-0700, but I think this must be CRI relay transmitter
still on air after 0300-0457. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, Sept 1 at 0126, pirate music at S7-S9,
much more than the usual JBA off-frequency carrier from presumed
Nowhere Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 11670, Wed Sept 1 at 2200, the *only* SNR token
English frequency to be heard at Maryland SDR and UTwente. VG except
at UTw bothered by splash from S9+30 11660, CRI French until 2230 via
Kashgar, East Turkistan, land of ChiCom imperialist genocide; 11940
obviously still off the air [but JBA carrier at 2058, presumably
remnant of CRI Bulgarian via Kashgar until 2057], but no signals
either on 17855 or 15520, which I at first assume must be inaudiblized
by degraded propagation, Sept 1 at 2058, but WWV at 2100 says K=0,
SF=84, no storms yet, but moderate to G2 level forecast. So 75% of REE
are off the air? Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed Sept 1 at 2200, VOT VG into UTwente SDR opening
English with news and press review; 2213 COVID PSA; 2214 `Feeling
Supreme` about folk remedies starting with gargling lemon juice for
sore throat, and finishing with something about the ``plodge`` in the
XIV century -- I think he`s trying to say ``plague``. Something`s
always awry at Ankara. 2222 music; 2225 plug the 41 languages
available at trtvotbird.com ? No, that must be
where I listen for a few minutes to the conclusion of a discussion
show `Newsmakers`, and then `Nexus` --- obviously a TV soundtrack
without any video --- good accents in even American English unlike the
SW station simultaneously in TurcoEnglish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: Sept 1 unawake as
usual Wed 1030 on WRMI 5850; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed Wed Sept 1 at 2100 on WRMI 7780, and starting about 21
seconds later on WBCQ 7490-: both JBA S7 in storm noise here; at
UTwente, 7780 also JBA S7 with storm noise tho no Blitz around
Holland, none closer than east Spain, north Algeria, and west Black
Sea. Into Maryland SDR, both S7 but not so noisy, WBCQ as always way
low measured in SAM mode, minus 142v Hz = 7489.858. Next, and last:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Thanks this week to Dan in Cincinnati, who says, ``Dear Glenn, I am
writing to thank you again for all of the great information that you
gather and report weekly`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790-, Sept 1 at 0626 check, WBCQ is off with no TOMBS,
clearing frequency for CODAR swoorps. BTW, Aoki still doesn`t list
WBCQ on 4790! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Wed Sept 1 at 2200, WBCQ with `AAAWWW` playback from
last Friday night. I notice the waterfall at Maryland SDR is sort of
spiral during `William Tell Overture` theme, I guess reflecting the
modulation pattern of that piece (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Sept 1 at 0125 check, WRNO New Orleans is still off.
What will all their Hindi proto-Christian listener do after 0315?
Probably until AC restored; no more reports until someone hear it
again, on its token schedule of 0100-0400 UT only. It would have been
less hazardous to transmit from Fort Worth (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 1 at
0138-0148; tipped by 1 kHz het as I tune across 1000 KTOK OKC: 612,
657(2), 684, 729, 738, 747(2), 774(2), 801, 837(2), 855(2), 882, 909,
936(2), 999, 1044, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1098(2), *1107, 1125(2), 1134,
1152, 1215(2), 1296, 1305(2). At this early hour, all of Eurafrica is
still in darkness. Probably mostly Spain and UK on frequencies with
any significant power, altho *1107, momentarily strongest, and 1296
bring to mind Afghanistan, where Kabul sunrise was 0056 UT (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, Sept 1 at 0627, JBA carrier vs constant STANAG
uteblob circa 4812. Possibly R. Logos, Chazuta, Perú, active? Tho Aoki
shows it as the only 4810 station and at 0900-2400 only. WRTH agrees
the only 4810 anywhere, anywhen is that 1 kW station, OAW9A. Nothing
since 2019 or 2020 at http://www.ethnicradio.org which is missionary
HQ in Orange, California. Not reported since late last year when there
was also a lot of activity on disgraced FB:
And only generic, undated info but with some still photos at:
Of course, this 4810 could also be a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
