** CUBA [and non]. 11760 et al., UT Monday Sept 27 at 0135, I make a
point of reconfirming RHC DX program `En Contacto` at its third and
last scheduled airing: yes, it has just started. For convenience I`m
tuning via Bonaire SDR. 11760 is not very good, fading down, so at
0140 try 9710 but it has CCI and ACI, i.e. CRI Spanish 9710 via
Cashgar, Turquistán Oriental, tierra de genocidio por los
imperialistas chino-comunistas, en contra de musulmanes, and 9705
probably jammer vs RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan. 9535 is better, but
also with CCI which would be CRI English via via Kashgar --- some
comrades!! By 0145 I`ve switched again to 5040 which is loud &
clear. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

As for content: main topic is the term ``Mayday`` and how it came
about; the locutora massacres the original French, ``m`aider``
pronouncing as if were Spanish. In this brief program it`s broken up
into segments; says that it`s not supposed to be as serious as SOS,
like need-some-help-here, but English usage has led to it being just
as urgent, as a dire emergency. Strangely, she never gets into how it
relates to the big Commie holiday!

Then about several ham DX-peditions with calls and QSL info; and
special events, notably A60EXPO from Dubai. I have the impression she
is reading a script without really understanding it. 0143 seems to
give times for this show, but not clear as I am retuning. 0144 about
solar activity. 0147 references ARRL webpage URLs --- do they not
realize those are from Yanqui Imperialists?? 0148 more about

Another topic is ``qué es el desacoplo de la polarización`` =
decoupling of polarization. This only merits a few words at the very
end, and I don`t get it. 0150 closing credits including guión as usual
by CO7GW; locución by Ariadna(?) García. NO mention of Arnaldo Coro
Antich --- how is Arnie doing now? 0151 into Doctor show (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [non]. Not a log yet, rather advance notice of something I
meant to mention on WOR 2105 but missed:

``Special Broadcast:
México le canta a las Américas (Mexico Sings To the Americas)
Date/Time: Tuesday, September 28th, 0300-0400 UTC**
**Monday, September 27 2200-2300 Mexico City Time / CDT
WRMI 5800 kHz

In honor of the 200th anniversary of the end of the Mexican War of
Independence, a special hour of Mexican music hosted by Luís Alejandro
Vallebueno with guests Gabriela Ortiz and “Uncle Bill” Tilford will
air on WRMI with support from Grupo DX México. It will be in Spanish
and directed towards Central and South America, but the back end of
the transmission should be listenable in most of North America and
parts of Western Europe and Africa. The music will be a combination of
world-famous artists and others probably not known outside of Mexico.
There will also be some items regarding history, customs and shortwave
in Mexico including special appearances by a veteran of Radio México
Internacional (aka XERMX in its days on shortwave) and a long-time
member of Grupo DX México ----------------------
William "Bill" Tilford, Owner/Producer, Tilford Productions, LLC``

This is also the big night for other UB programs, on WBCQ 7489.9v:
2300-2330 Monday, first half of `Melting Pot`; 0000-0100 UT Tuesday,
`From the Isle of Music` = Cuba; interspersed with lots of gab,
interviews with the musicians (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 29, the KTUZ ``Shawnee`` full-power transmitter with
three different Spanish networx, each displaying a farflung virtual
channel -- Telemundo as 30, Univision as 36, and Estrella as 48, now
with three more sub-channels, shopping networx in English, first
noticed in step-tuning Sept 27 at 0036 UT: 30-2 QVC, 30-3 HSN, 30-4
QVC2. I see these are already listed at rabbitears.info. I check the
RF channel for each to be sure they are really out of RF-29. They have
probably moved from some other LP transmitter for OKC market (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17895.069, Sept 27 at 1414, Qur`an from SRI/SBA,
S5-S8 and the SSOB beyond a few JBA carriers, no sign of any other
Sa`udis circa 17660, 17615 or 17570, supposedly on air now (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 245-MCW kHz, Sept 27 at 0613 UT, ND beacon FS, which is 400
watts from Sioux FallS SD. Not much else heard with high noise level.
I was tuned to 243-USB (and also forgot to mention with my MA 326 kHz
log yesterday that I was tuned to 325-USB) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2105 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
September 26 from 2000.7 on IRRS via AM Italia 918 kHz, S9+35 into
Noale SDR. Preceded by music, IRRS ID.

Also confirmed Sun Sept 26 after 2230 on WRMIs, 5950 S9+30 and 9955
S9+15 into east TN SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 27 at 0030 on WRMIs: 7730 VG direct; via
east TN SDR: 9455 only S9 way offbeam; 9395 VG S9+20, but with ``RTTY
warble`` QRM on plus side only, clear with LSB tuning. Much like the
QRM to IRRS 7290. Measured about 9396.1; by 0045, WRMI has faded way
down and the RTTY rules. Never noticed such QRM on 9395 direct to OK.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 27 at 0130 on WRN North America webcast.

Also confirmed from just before 0300 UT Mon Sept 27 on Area 51 via
WBCQ, 6160 minus 53v Hz = 6159.947v, S9+5 into Maryland SDR with some
ACI from 6165 Cuba even in LSB tuning. Previous show ended in time for
full WBCQ singing ID at 0259.5, but after WOR billboard started,
interrupted for another quick WBCQ `legal` ID. At 0325 direct check
here, S8-S9 with ACI. Next, not until Wednesday:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary
support; thanks this week to Gerald T Pollard, Raleigh NC, for a
quarterly equinoxial check to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Sept 27 at 1445, no signal from WBCQ-6 SuperStition of
World`s Last Chance; why is it still so unreliable, more breakdowns?
However, there is a JBA carrier on 9333, anomaly I have noticed
before, *only* when 9330 is off, making me wonder if it`s also from
BCQ, maybe an off-frequency exciter? After 1500 checking remote
further east, no sign of either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-oceanic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 27 at
0604-0610: 531, 585, 603, 621(2), 639(2), 657, 684, 693(2), 747(2),
774(2), 837, 846, 855(2), 936, 999(2), 1089, 1098, 1125(2), 1134(2),
1152, 1215, 1305(2), 1413(2), 1503(2) --- after Algeria, probably lots
of Canary/Spain, some UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3819-USB, Sept 17 at 0618, hamchew about drivers and
antennas, both stations, yes, on USB, not LSB, and not AM either. I
guess LSB on 40 & 80m is only a convention, easily refused (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1733 UT September 27
