** CUBA. 6165, Dec 21 at 0735, indecisive RHC S9+20 with music
presumably English hour, instead of 9700, and no other RHCs active
this late. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

December 21, 2021 EMIGRATION
'Cuba will be a stopover, but not my country anymore' --- People in
Cuba are desperately looking for money to make it to Nicaragua.

** SAUDI ARABIA. 13710.051, Dec 21 at 1541, Qur`an at S9-S6; always
heard off-frequency, but this time I take time to measure, SRI/SBA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18131-USB, Dec 21 at 1536, K8C, ``The Christmas Train``,
pausing to ``offload some liquid``; had intermittent carrier QRM on
18132, jhamming? See my Dec 16 log when he was on 18127-USB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re WORLD OF RADIO monitoring, which I confirmed starting UT
Mon Dec 20 at 0359.5 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-, John Carver replies:

``Glenn, For what it's worth I tried to listen to WOR on Area 51.
About eight or nine minutes into the broadcast it just disappeared.
Never did come back. In the previous four weeks I heard another
partial show once and nothing the other times. The last four weeks or
so I'm lucky if I get to hear an hour or two of Area 51 programming
before it disappears. No axe to grind or anything. John``

I asked him, ``John, Tnx, reminds me that just because a WOR starts
doesn`t mean it will air to the conclusion. I need to recheck toward
the end. This time do you think it faded out or transmitter went off
the air completely? Glenn``

``As far as I could tell, Glenn, I believe the transmitter was on the
entire time. I thought the feed had dropped and was waiting for it to
come back. That happens a lot. It got down to only three or four
minutes left and I turned it off. Probably should have left it on to
see if the next program started on time. The S meter stayed up while I
was waiting for the program to pick up again. Thanks man. John``

** U S A. 9455, Dec 21 at 0727, as Jeff had predicted, this WRMI-5 is
back on air; first noted missing Dec 2 and ever since. But it`s wacko
paranoid preaching by BBB on YWS or T2P, NOT what`s on the System F
9455 schedule, Family Radio in Spanish! S9+10; and the other 31ms are
also propagating this nightmiddle, 9955 also S9+10 but louder with
TOMBS, and 9395, S9+20 with Xmasmx on guitar. System E sked calls for
TOMBS on 9395, not 9955 where System B is supposedly world music on
internet only. But the transmitter grid at 07-08 shows 9395 with SMTV
cult, 9955 with TOMBS. Too bad the WRMI skeds cannot be accurately
coördinated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Tue Dec 21 at 1547, beepery from `SW Radiogram`: this
new without notice WRMI time unknown to Kim: https://swradiogram.net/
Altho I mentioned it back on Dec 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, Dec 21 at 0730, S2-S3 of English talk, sounds like M.
Angelica, so WEWN is active. So poor, but modulation seems OK.

15610, Dec 21 at 1913, S3-S4 of English RCC stuff into PEI SDR, also
so poor, but mod seems OK on WEWN afternoon. SAM shows carrier offset
minus 78v Hz, quite a bit = 15609.922v. Kiwis are sometimes
mis-calibrated, so I check another, E Falmouth MA, Cape Cod: MUCH
better here and offset as only +5 Hz. And on this S9+15 signal I can
hear that WEWN squeal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6114 approx., Dec 21 at 0732, still RTTY INTRUDING, QRM
to 6115 R. Nikkei, JAPAN unless tuned with narrow USB. I assume it
also interfere with CONGO when on 6115 earlier before 0600, right,
Ron? Can anyone ID the RTTY source? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
