** ALGERIA [and non]. 13815, Sept 21 at 1817, NO signal from TDA via
FRANCE as scheduled this hour, into African and Maryland SDRs. Ivo
Ivanov, Bulgaria, who monitors a lot of TDA/RTA, found the Issoudun,
FRANCE relays on 6050, 7295, 9535 between 04 and 06 UT Sept 21, also
missing, but own site Béchar on air, 7200, 9450, but not Ouargla
either. I often run across 9620 in my 06-07 UT monitoring but don`t
log it. Inside-Algeria usage is very hit-and-miss, but presumably the
France relays are soon to stop, if not already. See
including: HFCC schedule for TDA via ISSoudun, FRANCE:

04-05 6050
05-06 7295 9535
06-07 9620

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wednesday September 21, a good thing I
tune in Argentine SDR early, for at 1431, LRA36 is already on with
rockmusic, peaking S7. Gary Pence says they started at 1428. 1436
official sign-on, 4-language advisory, staff names; 1438 Esperanza
themesong; 1441 poetic recitation; 1443 song about primavera: they are
already celebrating spring tho no equinox really until UT Sept 23 at
0103, or 0104 depending on which reference. 1447 ``su compañía`` ID
and into live YL chat, on 22nd program of the 2022 cycle; a ``día muy
especial``. Guests in studio, chicos from the secondary school; 1450
male voice gets to read history of base; weather hard to copy, but
maybe minus 5 and winds 55 kph; 1453 phone numbers and all the other
contact info; acknowledges someone from Jujuy and callers on the air;
1455.5 music under up to full; 1501 student talking about history;
lots more chat I don`t try to copy, 1525 song; 1545 primavera song;
1604 ID with staff names again, ``nos une`` and off. But 1606 back on
for a few seconds of song, off again and no more by 1631 when the SDR
times out again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 248 kHz MCW, Sept 21 at 0624 UT, dash and WG, 1000 watt ND
beacon at Winnipeg MB. Audible despite storm noise from Kansas, and
little else. Will certainly miss WG when decommissioned April 20,
2023, per August CIDX Messenger; however not flagged as such in
dxinfocentre.com beacon list (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Sept 21 at 0610, RHC English S9+30/40 direct, // only
5040 S9+20; all others off already: 6100, 6060, 6000, as well as 5025
Rebelde. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``Economy --- Investing in Cuba: Certain Suicide --- What is behind
the announcements that private investment on the island will be
allowed? Emilio Morales, Miami 20 Sep 2022 - 17:42 CEST

In a desperate attempt to survive the multisystemic crisis that is
about to topple it, the Cuban regime has taken a series of steps that,
rather than a strategy, seem like acrobatics. Its new plan does not
include the first thing that should be implemented in the economic
sphere: a series of reforms, based on free enterprise and free
markets, to restructure the model.

Yes, the regime has announced that it will allow investments in the
private sector, and so has the Biden Administration, as part of its
policy to empower the Cuban people by allowing investments by American
companies together with private companies on the Island. However, it
is naïve to think that there is a real private sector in Cuba...``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 21 at 0606, VON is OFF. Something`s always
abnormal at Abuja.

7254.93v, Sept 21 at 1732 and still 1811, Alicante, Spain SDR gets a
signal here at VON`s offset, but no modulation. Canary, Spain, SDR is
unavailable as its ham must be transmitting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

NEW WOR 2157 should be ready for download early UT Friday September
23, first SWBCs at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Sept 21 at 0608, WRMI is ON with TOMBS, S9+20 // 5850
but 5950 is off. 5800 had been cut back until 0400* but last night was
heard after 0600 with dead air. Maybe something to do with cash flow
from TOMBS? Skedgrid still dated Sept 9 still shows it only until
0400* with otherstuff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Sept 21 at 0609, WEWN Spanish still OFF (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 4840, Sept 21 at 0612, WWCR S9+30 of dead air with some hum.
There they go again. Since 3215 & 5890 are off overnight weekdays,
leaves only 5935 on air and modulating, with DGS, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 21 at 0617+,
first time in months such a panoply this late due to latening Euro
sunrises: checked 1044 first and there it is, far too late for
Ethiopia as I recently hypothesized circa 0300.

But this is still too early for any TPs beyond 846, and unusually,
Kiritimati is missing even tho it`s Wednesday, not Sunday. Gary Pence
agrees, Sept 21: ``846 kHz no show --- sure enough, I tried checking
early and thru the nite but it was a no show. NH6XO [SDR Hawaii] is a
great place to check since Kiritimati is 1353 miles almost due south,
where his antenna is north/south 220 ft unterminated Beverage. 73s and
good luck this morning, Gary``

In total, not in the order tuned; (2) indicates at least two carriers
beating; (3) at least three: 531, 558, 621, 639, 684, 693-, 729(2),
774(3), 847, 855(2), 1044, 1098(2), 1107, 1116, 1305; 1710 = NAm
pirate? Method is 9 kHz steps in USB at 1 kHz below the channels.

These are likely from Spain/Algeria/Morocco; even when some of the
Spaniards are lower powered than biggies insolated further east. 693
is perceptibly low, judging from pitch tuned to 692 USB. MWOffsets
shows the only one fitting, as of 8 years ago! ``692.9921 RNE Radio
Nacional (Tortosa/Santa Bárbara) 24h 2014-08-23`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
