** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Nov 12 at 1456 nothing yet into
Argentine SDR from LRA36, but it cuts on at 1458.6 midsong at S5/S7 --
but cuts off the air already at 1505.4 before anything be spoken.
Usually it never comes back, so after 1508, I suspend, as anyway it`s
breakfast time. However, 1526 recheck it`s back on talking about a
fiesta `tomorrow`; 1530 about folklore and 1536 el costumbre argentino
de fútbol; same stuff heard on Wed Nov 9; 1553 ``nos une`` ID; 1556
about Córdoba province; 1600 music; 1603 ID with ``Nacional, la radio
pública``; 1617 again about the fiesta, will report about it next
week; 1618 song; 1622 ID with staff names, which funxions as s/on/off
without any explicity, a bit more music to 1623* (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** BRAZIL. 5938.313, Nov 12 at 0726, Brazuguese, R. Voz Missionária
facilitated by a weakened 5935 WWCR as ``skip is long``. So I measure
their other frequency too and find it unstable, varying audibly circa
9664.03, S7/S9 just as at 0731 ID for ``5940`` with its power.

9664.10, Nov 12 at 2246, RVM in Portuguese at S9+20 with het (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 28447 USB, Nov 12 at 2227, PP5BT calling CQDX; QRZ.com:
PP5BT Brazil flag Brazil
Rodrigo Gonçalves, Rua Alfonso Nicolao Bornhofen, 163, Blumenau, SC
89032452, Brazil -- among several DX phone sigs on 10m, but no beacons
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9900, Nov 12 at 2247, double Chinese echo, S9+15 = CNR1
jammers against RTI. No sign of Cairo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 12 at 2230, no signal from RHC where English used
to be, nor found anywhere else in scans of all bands.

11850, Nov 12 at 2242, S7/S9 of dead air except for some hum, maybe
trace of modulation, usual for this RHC Spanish frequency.

13608 approx., Nov 12 at 2235, extremely distorted RHC Spanish
wideband spurblob, FMish with F# tone. Then I look for others: 13673,
S9+12; 13808-13811, 13887 weak. Source has to be only active AM
transmitter on band, 13740, which is clear at S9+20. Displacement
range is 67-73 kHz and multiples. Somethings` always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 9870, Nov 12 at 0735 expressive M&M conversation
in Korean, so informal it could not possibly be from the North: yes,
it`s KBSWR at 07-08 via Woofferton UK. Caught one English word go by,
``invisible`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. This explains my hearing Chinese on 11620 a while
ago at 1500+ -- mixed up with their simulservice on 7630, likely same
secret site. Nothing is listed anywhere near 7630.

``TVOM Voice of the Martyrs - Chinese program (site?), on 7630, on Nov
11; 1452 UT - Open carrier; 1459 - Music, followed by ID "Nǐ xiànzài

jiémù" (Google translation - "You are now listening to the Voice of

Also confirmed Saturday November 12 until 2103.5 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, so started circa 2034, S9+20 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 12 at 2100 on WRN stream for Europe,
but *not* to N America, rather KBS World Radio, which on the A22
schedule still displayed, was at 2200 UT. I have enquired about this
contradictory info. This also calls into question what happen 24 hours
later on Sunday; and for the other listed airing which was at 1230 UT
Sunday; now 1330, or what? Next:

0030 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to SW

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Nov 12 after 0100, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`,
elexion discussion, so not a repeat, politix I can forego, so recheck
at 0142 datestamp as 11 of Nov, YOOLF 2022, trimulcasting on 7490,
6160 and 5130; 0147 some items from Free Radio Weekly which he and I
have just received from this week`s editor, Larry Will. 0148 he
mentions me who ``doesn`t have a life`` -- or was it, wife?? in
response to my numerous non-logs of SuperStition 9330 -- problem seems
to be computer control which could not bring up the high voltage.
Rails against c.c. of transmitters rather than traditional analog
electro/mechanical operation. Unfortunately, AW has moved his show one
hour later so it conflicts with WOR already at 0130 on WRMI 5850 &
15770 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sat Nov 12 at 1800, WWCR with `Talking [sic] Machine
Show`, mostly ancient cylinder-recorded music. One episode starts,
then cut to a different episode restart. New sked dated Nov 6 still
shows this the only airtime on the 4 transmitters available 24/7.
Surely could be fit in as filler elsewhen. One of few shows ever worth
hearing on WWCR, and certainly the only one of their own produxions.
Ex-1700 during DST season (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260 & 5040, Sat Nov 12 at 0638, no signal from RV on
either likely fundamental. At 0737, no signals either on harmonix 7890
& 11835. Gary Pence agrees, nothing at 0752 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5814 USB, Nov 12 at 0724, JBA 2-way not Spanish, maybe
Portuguese or Italian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
