** BRAZIL. 9664.794, Nov 8 at 0710, RVM with music on variable
frequency. Had been no signal previous night or two (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 6165, Nov 8 at 0721, S8/S9 of dead air. Must be RHC English
not turned off yet. No other RHCs still on air. Lots of stuff listed
on 6165, but nothing else at this hour. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 8 at 2000, RHC opening English hour, but VP
unusable. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Sunday Esperanto
semihour should have been at 2330 or 2230, but Jean-Michel Aubier,
France, heard if Nov 7 at 2146 on 15140 and 13680, but both cut off a
minute or two later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Nov 8 at 2229, S7/S9 of dead air direct except for
whine, no doubt R. Cairo fruitless on air again. Something`s always
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Nov 8 after 0700, still no signal this month from R.
Mali; nor at 1710 into Canary SDR nor on 9635. Hope not gone for good.
The ChiCom should have been maintaining this along with their Bamako
relay: is that still 100% operational? Of course, coups and
counter-coups, unstable politix. Military have delayed until March
2024, return to civilian rule

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 13630, Nov 8 at 2158, song at S5/S8 continues thru hourtop,
so not CRI? Yes it is, 2201 ID as ``Fréquence Afrique de RCI``, in a
2130-2230 French relay via Bamako (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.93, Nov 8 circa 0705 still no signal from VON direct
when the frequency is free; at 1803 into Canary SDR, 7255 totally
dominated by CRI Russian via East Turkistan. Of course, evening
channel for VON was originally 11770v or 9690v, but for longtime had
been unwilling or unable to go there, rather 7255v. So now I check
Canary on those alternatives: nothing but heavy ACI to 9690; 11770
clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME. 15460.075, Nov 7 at 1616, Afro lang S7/S9, off-frequency
and just barely modulated, VOA Kinyarwanda, 100 kW at 100 degrees. Am
wondering if this site ever manage to maintain frequency accuracy.
There are 5 x 100 kW SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 21630, Nov 7 at 1626, BBCWS in English, S3/S6, the OSOB
and SSOB, 125 kW at 114 degrees from ASCENSION, this hour only. BBC
also here earlier in different languages, different sites (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28216 CW, Nov 8 at 1950, 4 dashes and DE K3FX/B ...,
list; among several beacons now on band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2163 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday November 8 at 0155 the 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+10 direct.

A noncommercial service for which financial support is appreciated.
Thanks this week for a generous check from Mike Cooper, Georgia,
``in appreciation of your continued activities``, to
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702.

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9329.946V to .959, WBCQ-6/WLCR is finally back on air,
S9+10/20 in English; had been missing for more than a week, and now is
off-frequency minus instead of plus. Varying audibly as I try to
measure it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Nov 8 at 2153, JBA signal here surely not WRMI, off
again, rather RFA Saipan/CNR1 jammer; while 9395 is S9+30; 9955 also
off but back by 2205. WRMI also missing 9455 several hours earlier.
Beware, another Hurrican, Nicole is heading near Okeechobee (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Nov 8 at 0325, no signal from WTWW-1. Not that I miss
PPPP, but come to think of it, random tuning has not encountered this
for some weeks in prime evening time when ought to be on if ever. Even
less so 9475 in daytime, not even Sunday mornings. Those should carry
programming from WTWW owner, Scriptures for America. Yet WTWW-2 with
Ted`s rock music or ham shows on 5085 continues regular at this check
et al., from 0200? Earlier on weekends; closing time varies widely.
Also sporadically active the so-called Ukraine service, Voice of
Freedom on 9940. Another check at 1948: NO WTWWs (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** VANUATU. 7890, Nov 8 at 0718, JBA carrier and a slightly stronger
JBA carrier on 11835, 2 and 3 x 3945 from R Vanuatu (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA split MW carrier search, Nov 8 at
0735: 621-Canary, 711-Morocco; and 846-TP Kiritimati. BTW, 936 used to
be prominent 200 kW from Morocco, but no sign of it for a year or more
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5960, Nov 8 at 2150, S5/S8 of music, maybe Turkish? Per
EiBi B22 and Aoki, nothing scheduled here at this hour (Glenn Hauser,
