** CUBA. 9700, Jan 18 at 0724, RHC English at S9 but JBM, only
frequency left. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 13761 & 13638 approx., Jan 18 at 1553, extremely distorted
spurblobs S3-S5 out of 13700 RHC which is S9+10. Trace of program
modulation on 13638. That`s plus and minus 61.5 kHz or so; then
checking for second-orders at twice that displacement, find 13577 at
minus 123 is also S3-S5 instead of significantly weaker. Can tell
there is one circa 13823, but obscured by 13820 Radio Martí and
jamming, tsk2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** EGYPT. 9899.605, Jan 18 at 2114, R. Cairo is on again and failing
miserably, extremely distorted music via UTwente at S9/+20. 4+1
mis-timesignal for 2115:00 which I time ending at 2115:50, only a
fraxion of which could be due to internet delay; programming continues
unreadable past 2145. Something`s always egregious at Egypt (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 18 at 2344, VOT English direct is S9/+10 with
flutter and somewhat undermodulated, but without the CCCCCCI which
infests it in Europe, with `Did You Know That?` feature. Without
further listening it`s impossible to know whether any program is
starting or ending since the same theme and title is played both for
intro and outro. 2354 the IS is playing; halts and restarts at 2356
now with two German IDs before 2357*, depriving masculine and feminine
KW-hearers of any more German which continues on the program feed line
für Nachteulen. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler and/or awry at
Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 6195, Jan 18 at *0259.5, BBCWS in English cuts on via
Masirah, OMAN, S5-S7, better than a weaker S3-S4 signal which cut off
a few seconds earlier: that was the same 250 kW site concluding
Dari/Pashto Afghanistan service at 35 degrees. The 03-04 hour is at
320 degrees, altho intended to go no further than Turkey. I`m checking
this out since I heard this from Doug Brown, Jan 15:

``It's been a long while since I've been able to enjoy BBC World
Service with armchair quality reception and at a convenient hour of
the day. But so I have been for the past week. We are now back at our
winter home in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, after a two year hiatus,
due to covid. I've been hearing BBC in English every evening from 0300
to 0400 GMT on 6195 KHZ. I don't know where their transmitter is
located or who their target audience is. But they're pounding in solid
here in the southeast US. Of course, we wouldn't want BBC to know that
anyone is listening here. They would shut it down. Best Regards, Doug
Brown, London ON / Seminole FL``

Checking on my NGS globe with geometer, guess what, 320 is aimed right
at Seminole. Oops! BBC is inadvertently broadcasting to North America.
6195 is a legacy BBC frequency, currently also employed at other hours
via Singapore, Säo Tomé and the Ascension part of Great Britain (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2121 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
January 18 at 2344 the 2330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 and no jamming
audible; but by 2357 recheck, now the noise is on and gaining for
total of S9+10, in time for Radio Libertad from 2400 which Must Be
Jammed to forestall any liberty in KYBA. Next:

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

** U S A. 9950 & 9960, Jan 18 at 0725, JBA carriers, parasitic spurs
out of TOMBS on WRMI 9955, which is S9+20/30. So far this anomaly has
been traced to the 9955 and 4980 transmitters only, but be alert for
the like flanking other WRMIs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
