** ALASKA. Re: [WOR] HAARP Asteroid Bounce Experiment --- If I had
read thru the linked publicity about it first, I might not have
remarked about a publicity stunt. They indicate HF signals can
penetrate better below the surface than radar. Here`s more via IRCA
iog from Russ Edmunds Dec 27:

``Scientists plan to hit an asteroid with more than 9.6 million radio
waves from HAARP``
Hey, that`s a lot more impressive than ``9.6 MHz``! Yet the article
keeps referring to it as ``low-frequency`` rather than standard
scientific nomenclature, high-frequency. Low, only by comparison
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Wed Dec 28, LRA36 check via favorite
Argentine remote, shared with someones in Los Ángeles and Essen, finds
it S9 with song prélude at 1457 tune-in. 1501.5 standard canned s/on
with multi-lingual advisory that it`s monolingual, staff names; 1503
themesong, recitation and another song as I am distracted by
breakfast. 1513 live YLs as programa 38, last one of the 2022 cycle,
but I can`t make out whether there will be a break next few weeks as
likely. 1518.5 mentions 17 dic 1952 = base founding? Signal now fading
down, and chops off at 1520.7* never to return by 1540 when I quit.

Earlier I had also tried to get the webcast via
Antarctica is at the bottom, appropriately of the drop-down at
which goes to this but only an error message:

Also got this: ``Hi, Glenn: ANTARCTICA. This Wednesday‘s broadcast
which I‘ve heard via an Argentine SDR as usually popped up at 1456 UT
amid a typical LA song. Strength was quite strong until 1516 when the
signal disappeared unfortunately. It didn’t reappear until tune-out at
1540. Let‘s hope for a longer session this coming Saturday. Bye from
Germany, Joachim Kornek, Dortmund`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Dec 28 at 0724, no SWBC frequencies active on 4, 5, 6, 9, 10
MHz -- but the jammers against nothing on 5, 6, 7 and 9 MHz bands are
still pounding! Ivo Ivanov has concluded that the main Bauta site is
totally down, while some RHC frequencies attributed to Quivicán are
still running. Something`s very wrong at RadioCuba.

From 2334 Dec 28 I spot check some known RHC and CRI relay frequencies
at the NH remote: OFF: 11760, 6000, 15230, 13680, 11670; ON: 13650,
11850 suptorted, 5990 VG; algo on 9710 unseems Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Dec 28 at 2210, another day with no signal, no
loss, no English from egregious R. Cairo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 28 at 0728, JBA carrier, so R. Kiribati is on;
no other 9/kHz splits detected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13755, Dec 28 at 0727, RNZP is S9/+10; yet hardly
anything audible one band down on 11 MHz. Of course the S Hemisphere
part of the path is at high summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 28 at 0721, VON with S9/+10 of dead air. More
reliably on lately, if only they could figure out how to modulate it
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Dec 28 at 0745 UT, SW, 25-watt NDB at
StillWater, is back! After chex every day or night, had been missing
starting Dec 12. 350, RG at OKC, still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Dec 28 at 2315, Token English from REE about a
bill pending in congress to allow people to choose their gender of
record; and about Trans- and LGBTQ rights in general; how right wing
and Catholix are opposed; even some feminist groups. VG into NH SDR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.000+, Dec 28 after 2300, VOT English VG into UTwente,
but soon pumping fading caused by XJPBS carrier slightly different SAH
frequency, and almost as annoying as its modulation added later.
Approx. 2320-2330, `Weekly Commentary`, same one as heard before about
Scottish separatism. It may be weekly, but broadcast more than one day
per week. 2353 recheck, drifted up to 5960.002, signing off and a bit
of IS until cutoff at 2355* uncovering East Turkistan, std
denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2170 monitoring: confirmed UT Wednesday
December 28 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+32 into Missouri SDR.

Via Bill Tilford, WBCQ advises that the 7490 transmitter is
temporarily off the air, so its programming has been moved to 5130,
most of it before 0300 so not conflicting with Radio Angela. So that
means our next WOR should also be on 5130 instead of 7490:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [5130 instead temporarily]

Yes, it was: JBA carrier on 5130 direct; poor S8/9+10 and noisy into
VA SDR showing -21 Hz; but VG S9+5/15 into NH SDR at -14 Hz. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Like our website, a noncommercial service for which financial support
is appreciated. Thanks this week to Gerald T. Pollard, Raleigh NC, who
sends a generous quarterly seasonal check for Winter Solstice to:
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

** U S A. 5130-, UT Wed Dec 28 at 0100, WBCQ 7490 programming
temporarily here while the 7490- transmitter is out of order.
Confirmed as on sked, the South Sudan Messianic who wants to put a SW
station on air there, ``Operation Nehemiah Missions With Messianic
Rabbi William Levi``. Copy is tough because of his accent and some
overmodulation distortion. 7490 webcast was restored after dead air
there too, but will it still be running even tho SW is on 5130? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Dec 28 at 2216, WBCQ-6/WLCR is still/again off. No
twits from AW to explain this now nor 7490 downage (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 28 at 0722, JBA carrier reconfirming RV is still
here instead of 5040 or 3945 and harmonix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1610.65 kHz, Dec 28 at 0733, JBA carrier again as het to
1610.00 CHHA Toronto; I ask again, is anyone else hearing it? (Glenn
Hauser OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051, Dec 28 at 0726, S7/S9 open carrier still here. Ron
Howard has also been hearing it. Maybe not SWBC but an idle ute, such
as RTTY on standby (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0017 UT December 29
