** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Nov 6 at 1509 quick check on Brasil
SDR, again this Saturday no signal from LRA36; only on Wednesdays
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FINLAND [and non]. 11720, 11690, 6170, 5980, Fri Nov 5 at 2323, no
signals on any of these detected at UTwente for monthly low-power
Scandinavian Weekend Radio broadcast for 24 hours from 2200. At least
no other stations blocking either; the first 10 hours supposed to be
on 11720 & 5980 --- not 5970 typo in the Radiosdumonde on disgraced FB
publicity quoted elsewhere without correxion. UTw may be too close for
11 MHz, and propagation remains degraded. At 0025 Nov 6 recheck,
however, is getting a VP signal on 5980 with discussion in English,
sounds like BBC --- in fact it *is* BBC as sked this bihour via OMAN,
0029 pause for promos and news; and no sign of SWR. So trying to hear
SWR remains a waste of time. It would help a lot if SWR picked truly
clear frequencies, even out of band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Nov 6 at 0642, VON is on for a change at S7-S9
but just barely modulated. Something`s always awful at Abuja (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. ND beacons in well UT Nov 6 at 0651-0700 UT with no storms
anywhere in USA per Blitzortung:

515-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0651, underneath PN Ponca City OK, which has
been constantly strong day and night, for the first time I hear
another one: OS, which is 25 watts from Columbus at Ohio State.

426-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0653 UT, ND beacon UV, which is 25 watts from
Oxford, Mississippi.

420-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0654 UT, NDB, TU, 25 watts from Tupelo, MS. I
was tuned to 419-USB

414-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0655 UT, two NDBs mixing, alternating IDs: SU,
40 watts from Sioux City IA; and ATS, 25 watts from Artesia NM; tuned
to 412-USB

404-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0657 UT, NDB, HU, 25 watts from Hutchinson KS,
not far but seldom heard; with QRM from HRU on 407, 25 watts from
further Herington KS, which is a regular

400-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0658 UT, NDB, AHQ, 25 watts from Wahoo,
Nebraska; I think the only one ever logged on 400, despite several
others listed, not even AI Ardmore OK with 30 watts

382-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0700 UT, NDB, SP, 25 watts from Springfield IL,
tuned to 380-USB

356-MCW kHz, Nov 6 at 0701 UT, NDB, ODX, 25 watts from Ord, Nebraska
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563+CW, Nov 6 at 1454, HIFER beacon YSO, Yellow Springs
OH, listed as 13563.50~; aside slight 13565 CW, presumably K6FRC
California; with CODAR QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2111 monitoring: as sent
immediately to Alfredo Cotroneo at IRRS Nov 5:

``WOR cut in half --- Alfredo, New scheduling on Friday: 1911 UT tune
in, music already modulating on 7290 & 918. WOR starts on time clearly
at 1915 on both. 1930, cut to IRRS ID and MUSIC! Last half of WOR
lost. Or still music past 1933. Now what? --- And at 1934 Wavescan
starts! BTW, heavy adjacent interference from 7295 China in English.
LSB tuning of 7290 required. --- FYI, Furthermore I observed the
following as I kept monitoring 7290 and 918 via remotes: 1945 Wavescan
keeps running on both, so your time does not end at 1945 any more? but
7290 is off the air by 1956 or 1957 before WS is finished. WS is still
running on 918, but having started ``late``, is still not finished
when at 1959.5, 918 cuts to double IRRS SW announcement, signing off,
then QSL info, and 2001 into music. Glenn``

The next IRRS broadcast of WOR is on MW 918 only, again monitored thru
nearby Noale, Italy, remote: confirmed Fri Nov 5 at 2130 ex-2030, VG
signal and almost complete, but chopped off a few seconds before
finished as I say, ``Solar flux 100 November 3...`` Not only no more
mod but transmitter turned off.

Missed checking Fri Nov 5 at 2230 on WRMI 5950; anyone hear it? From
next week expected to be at 2330.

Confirmed UT Sat Nov 6 at 0141 the 0130 on WRMI 9395, S5-S8 into

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Nov 5 at 2222, WBCQ SuperStition in Brazuguese with up
and down strength flutter despite 500 kW peaking S9+20, but also
sideways Doppler frequency flutter, as the ionosphere has still not
fully recovered. WWV claims no storms in past 24 hours nor predicted,
but K index at 0000 would be 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.898v, Nov 5 at 2357, WBCQ S9+20 into Maryland SDR in
dead air, but 2358 song and ID, Nov 6 at 0000, William Tell Overture
for `AAAWWW`, with interjexions: ``check it``, ``no more, no more, no
more, no more,`` he begs of Angela; and ``gallop``. He`s always
opening with titillation, implying or saying that Angela is half-naked
or stripping. Then into discussion of horse riding which means this is
a rerun from last week; I missed the opening then so did not recognize
that at first. Is this the weekend he was going to some hamfest in NH?
John Carver agrees it`s a repeat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Nov 6 at 0639, YL rock song in English, maybe gospel,
S9+10. Got to be WRNO extended past usual 0400* (after DST, nominally
0500*). But bad distortion. Many months ago they stayed on overnight
for a while, partly Chinese. Others also report this, Ron Howard in
Hindi until 0502 English, Walt Salmaniw, Wolfgang Bueschel; and Ivo
Ivanov past 1000. When I recheck at 1513, it`s off. 7505 is HFCC
registered available for WRNO at 2200-1600, rest of the time on never
used 15590. Remains to be heard whether this be permanent expansion
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
