** CUBA. 15230, Dec 26 at 2325, RHC is S9 but just barely modulated in
Brazuguese. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [and non]. P.P.S. to the Gruss an Bord saga, in the WOR
iog: ``WRMI initially went to music after an ID at 2100 UT but they
joined the Gruss an Bord church service some minutes later. WRMI
carried the whole last hour and at least the beginning of the news
bulletin/program starting at 2200. Could only listen for a minute past
22:00 as the Christmas Eve dinner was on the table. Merry Christmas
and Happy Holidays to all. -- Richard Langley``

``No such shortwave relay between 2100 and 2200 was booked at all. I
they did it for the reasons I suspect: I doubt that it saved

Anyway, I meanwhile got it confirmed that indeed in the old format
until last year the last round of recorded greetings went out via NDR
Info Spezial only. And the accidental shortwave relay of the
children`s programming is particularly ironic: Until last year it was
part of the FM program schedule and then thrown out there as part of
the reformatting.

Their farewell from FM was a masterpiece of the genre to spice
children`s programming with satire and sarcasm for adults. Those who
understand German should not miss it, it's a miracle that no one did
prevent it from being broadcast.

** ITALY. 207 kHz, Dec 26 at 2103.7 tune-in via Noale SDR, immediately
hear S S S, 3 Morse dots repeated several times, then long talk in
Italian, unreadable. It`s S6 with fast SAH, Iceland? Carrier offset
up to 1 Hz minus. So AM Italia is still commemorating the Marconi
anniversary, a biweek after the original date December 12 (Glenn

** PERU [and non]. 4808.81V, Dec 27 at 0025, Santiago, Chile SDR lox
onto a JBA carrier here, after Lúcio Otávio Bobrowiec, Brasil tipped
the WOR iog: ``Hi all. R. Logos is on at 0005 UT on 4808 (to avoid
noise on 4810). Religious music. 73 Lucio Brasil``

My recheck via same SDR at 0148 finds it on 4808.83V. Meanwhile,
direct at 0127, the only carrier I can detect is very close to
4810.00. There is no longer any other known broadcaster, like India,
around 4810. The noise is this per EiBi:
``4810.1 0000-2400 Martinique FUF French Navy STANAG F Car u``
but the bulk of it is above 4811. At 0155 I check another SDR,
Brasília #1, and hear S3/S5 the religious music past 0202, no ID
break, but displays only ~5 Hz below 4810.000. Must listen in LSB to
avoid the STANAG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2118 monitoring: as usual I zzz
thru the Sun Dec 26 airing at 1330 on WMRI Europe via Channel 292,
Germany. Did anyone hear it?

Confirmed Sunday December 26 from 2100.7 on IRRS Shortwave via AM
Italia, 918 kHz, S9+19 into nearby Noale SDR. Way over interference.

Also confirmed Sun Dec 26 at 2341, the 2330 on WRMIs, 5950 S9+25 into
Knoxville SDR, 9955 S9+10 and much less loud with some jamming; and
still no signal on 4980.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 27 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+20 to
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 27 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+10

Also confirmed UT Monday December 27 at 0230 on WRN N America webcast

Also confirmed UT Monday December 27 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6160-, minus 55 Hz offset at Maryland SDR = 6159.945, S5-S6. Just
before 0429, my final words after ``concluding ----`` chopped off for
HRI to start. What`s the big hurry??? At least no RHC ACI tonight
since it`s on 9700 instead of 6165, but from *0430 HRI gets ACI from
NHK Russian via Nauen, Germany. NHK is scheduled on 6165 until 0500*
and again *0600-0630 in Arabic via France. Next WORs:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
