** U S A. 5800, UT January 1, 2022 from 0200, WRMI with `Nochevieja
Panamericana` special hour provided by Uncle Bill Tilford, and Luis
Vallebueno co-hosting, mostly in Spanish but some English. VG
reception direct to the R75 and E-W longwire on 5800, but even better
SINPO 55555 via the Knoxville TN SDR, at steady S9+18. The // 7780 is
VP by comparison, but at 0220 I do find it S9/+10 into UTwente SDR.
Anyhow I`m at the computer so prefer to listen that way; and also keep
an eye on several TV NYE specials. Here`s a summary of what I heard
after the first few minutes, and reported to Luis for eQSL:

0209 greeting in English from Alan Roe, UK
0210 Carlos Gardel music
0213 music from Maracaibo
0217 costumbres de Venezuela
0221 Gayle Van Horn greeting
0222 pasacalle traditional ritmo, Ecuador
0225 Thomas Witherspoon greeting
0229 ID by Bill in English, YL voice in Spanish
0230 Jeff White greeting; WRMI Okeechobee now for 8 years + many more
0231 merengue from Dominican Republic
0234 Fred Waterer greeting
0235 Veracruz music, Cuban influenced
0242 Julho in Brasil in English introduces a NYE pop song from 1951
0245 vals from Perú
0248 greeting from Guillermo Glenn Hauser in Spanish: formerly with
[Espacio DXista], Radio Enlace, Mundo Radial; still welcomes input in
Spanish for World of Radio after 2100+ episodes
0249 song from Chile
0254 ``5 para las 12`` song
0258 QSL info in Spanish and English: at least 15 minutes of details,
SINPO, etc. to vallebueno@gmail.com
0259.5 to Zanotti WRMI ID
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Jan 1 at 0100, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW`,
but Allan`s initial comments sound familiar: picking nose, toilet
paper, Angela taking horse-riding lessons. Yes, it`s a rerun so
tune-out by 0105. From mid-north Indiana, John Carver agrees:

``For what it's worth, Glenn. 4790 and 6160 are carrying Brother Scare
tonight instead of Allan's show. Signal from 7490 went to hell about
half way through the program. Impossible to copy now. I still believe
tonight's program is a rerun. John, Old and in the way`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Jan 1 at 0736, S9+30/40 of dead air except for some
hum on this WWCR, while the others are OK, 3215, 5890, 5935. This
happens again and again. Is anyhuman present at 1300 WWCR Avenue
overnight? That would seem to be prudent with 4 x 100 kW SW and 1 x 50
kW MW transmitters running. The place burned down once before, or was
it twice? If so, dozing or not paying attention. However, no loss with
repugnant programming, mostly dead Brother Scare or dead Gene Scott
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 485.9 kHz, Jan 1 at 0725 UT, JBA carrier direct, perhaps
the Fessenden experimental special from Forest VA, WI2XLQ, during
final 24-hour broadcast to end at 2000 UT Jan 1. Not trying harder to
hear it now, since I definitely had it last week via closer remote at
Bakersville NC, about 310 km = 192 statute miles away.
(Distancefromto.net is screwed, insisting that Forest VA is in San
Antonio TX or the UK, so I measure Lynchburg VA instead). Lots of IRCA
MW DXers were trying to hear it this week. Here and I expect far
beyond, there are storm crashes from a line running from SE OK thru AR
into KY, much like the Xmas tornado track (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
