** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 2 at 1456 tune-in via Brasil
remotes, LRA36 is on again this Saturday, usual stuff of frequent IDs,
historical talx, songs, i.e. 1525 hielo song, 1527 Antártida song;
1542 re-``sign-on``, 1545 Antda. song; 1552 rock; music past 1605 and
1617 tune-out. Manuel Méndez, Spain, who barely hears it direct, says
it quit at 1717*, having first tuned in at 1452 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 6060, Oct 2 at 0638, RHC English with humbuzz after some
nights not suffering from that, S9+20/30; 6165 is S9+30/40 and
somewhat overmodulated while 6000 & 6100 are off. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Saturday October 2 at 0632, RNZI S9+10 the SSOB
by far with honky-tonk piano music, announcement on the `Saturday
Night` nationwide request show, always a fun listen. I first checked
7245 and found it empty.

The current how-to-listen schedule is still self-contradictory:
04:59 - 06:58 11725 Pacific Daily
05:59 - 12:58 7245 Pacific Sat Sun
06:59 - 08:58 7245 Pacific Mon - Fri
as if on both frequencies Sat & Sun at 0559-0658! They do have two
transmitters but never? run both at once.

As for the programme, another contradixion, for October 2:
``8:08 PM. Saturday Night
Saturday nights on RNZ National is where Paul Brennan plays the songs
YOU want to hear. All music from 7 till midnight (RNZ)``
Obviously it really starts at 0608 UT, since a week ago, NZ started
imagining the local time zone be 13 hours ahead. This is rather too
late even for me in the ``CDT`` of UT -5, but we shall ``gain`` an
hour from November to make it appear just after local midnight and
only hope there will still be a VG L&C frequency in B-21. If you are
up late on our ``Friday night``, go hear this.

The programme page dated October 2 has playlists for each hour but not
exact times. What I heard amid the first hour was:
Winifred Atwell - Black And White Rag

Extraterritorial listeners might not be refused since it is on SW:
``Saturday Night --- Your requests, nostalgia and musical memories.
Saturday evening from 7pm - Midnight

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2106 monitoring: confirmed after
1600 UT Sat Oct 2 on WRN North American service webcast.

Also confirmed Sat Oct 2 at 1952 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 17
minutes into so started circa 1935. Occasional lite crashes from
storms in MO & IL, but not right over Wentzville.

Also heard at 2353 Sat Oct 2 on WRMI 5950, which I had left running
via GA/TN remotes after Wavescan until 2330 when WOR must have started
at a new unknown time; but it now shows on the System L schedule ---
and another new one on me, Friday at 2230! as well as Sunday 2230, all
on 5950.

[Following at 0000 UT Sun Oct 3 on 5950: TRSW with Europirate R.
Monique International, which seems to specialise in classic rock, what
else? The silly DJ whose favorite expletive is ``bay-beh``, calls out
to American listeners.]

WOR 2106 also confirmed UT Sun Oct 3 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG. Next:

** U S A. 9950 & 9960, Oct 2 at 0626, once again WRMI audible on
parasitic spurs 5 kHz above and below 9955, which is S9+20/30, during
TOMBS with a trace of that modulation on 9960 and less so on 9950.

4975 & 4985, soon checked too Oct 2 at 0646, the same type of spurring
out of 4980 which is also S9+20/30, the upper one a JBA carrier, and
hardly any modulation on the lower. So far the only two WRMI
transmitters detected this way, adjacent #3 and #4 which are both on
160 degree antenna(s) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Oct 3 at 0009, WTWW-2 already in TOUTA via
webcast. Slightly distorted but at least it`s in $ tereo unlike SW, and
there is nothing like an organ that needs $ tereo! Topic is ``ladies
day``, i.e. female organistes. Ends at 0030, so now supposed to start
at 0000? Don`t count on it. I take off my phones but don`t stop the
player; at 0039 I hear traces of TO --- yes, more such music, not
played by ladies, but totally George Wright, i.e. a masculine person.
Must be running two episodes in a row, ends at 0100; what next? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
