** ARGENTINA [non]. 5850, after not hearing WOR on WRMI, I keep
listening at 0200 UT Saturday Nov 26 as Spanish hour of RAE Argentina
Al Mundo starts. Gives date as Friday November 11! So was there no
produxion on Nov 18 or today, or just did not get uploaded properly to
WRMI server? Calls it ``Miami Radio Internacional``. Preview that will
include another edition of `Suplemento de Actualidad DX`. That finally
starts at 0220, a long chat between Arnaldo Slaen and host Fernando;
historical stuff about public radio, 0236 an Uruguayan FM station,
CX296 with a clip of its frenetic produxion; then about clandestine LV
de Canarias Libre from long ago.

Finally 0251 to some ``actual`` DX news, four tips: Congo Brazzaville
reactivated on 6115 circa 0530-0600; Voice of Amhara State, Ethiopia
on 7110 around 0400 -- that`s not a regional station, but R. Ethiopia,
or EBC Radio, is it not? Anti-Beijing, Sound of Hope, 2045z on 6340,
6370; Voice of People, S to N Korea, 6520 around 1000 with jamming.
Show finishes 0255 until next [?] week, multi-lingual RAE IDs, a few
LAm news headlines. BTW, current sked shows this also on 5800,
unchecked; and at 0200 UT Mondays on 5850 at least is the Argentina to
the World semihour in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 9490.064, Nov 26 at 0241, I measure the R. República relay
via RMI via Issoudun, audible amid the Cuban jamming, and find it is
*still/again* off-frequency, despite the on-frequency/transmitter
change report a few days ago from Wolfgang Bueschel I quote omitting
the frequency on WOR 2166; that must have been a fluke, temporary
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 25 at 2310, token English from REE has no
competition from Turkey, but interview subject is something medical I
can`t really get into. I do notice that both VA & MD remotes are not
getting a VG signal, and NO signals from 12030 & 11940; are they off?
No, all three are audible at UTwente, none VG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Nov 25 at 2301, no signal from VOT into
UTwente; recheck at 2310, still no TRT but Chinese is on from EAST
TURKISTAN, std denunciation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2166 monitoring: confirmed Friday
November 25 at 2139 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+15
into nearby Noale SDR, no QRM for a change; and nothing on 918 or 207
kHz; except on 918 I hear a 1-kHz het obviously caused by the
off-frequency 917 Nigerian beating against the other Nigerian or
something EurAsian on 918.

NOT confirmed UT Saturday November 26 at 0130 on WRMI 5850 & 15770,
which started only a few weeks ago. Without notice, 5850 has been
replaced by music, fill? And 15770 is now SMTV as on the transmitter
schedule, while System F sked still claims WOR on both. Next:

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat Nov 26 at 0100, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`.
They say the high was 84 today with high humidity, uncomfortable, so
even tho it`s Deland of Fla I wonder if this be a repeat? No, NWS
confirms hi of 83 today and RH of 70%. Then a lot of chat about
horses, as Angela owns one named Sylvie who is a thorobred, and spends
a lot of time with her and 40 others at a nearby horse ranch. Fun
fact: Sylvie loves peppermint. 0122 complaining about the economy; is
getting harder to find powerful tubes needed for WBCQ transmitters;
and the rising cost of diesel, which powers the world. Accuses
President Biden of ``high treason for the war on fossil fuels``. Huh?
0142 reminiscing about The Jetsons cartoon show. 0147 finally
datestamp for 25 of November YOOLF 2022, trimulcasting on 7490, 6160
and 5130: so I measure them on Maryland remote: 7489.937, 6159.936,
5129.995 = close! Teases about the meaning of WBCQ: could be ``We
Broadcast Continuous Quality``. Reads some Free Radio Weekly pirate
logs just published. Wrapup and 0159 prayer running over into Hal
Turner time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
