** CHINA [non]. 5910, Jan 10 at 0342, S9+20/30 of dead air except for
some hum, instead of CRI/CGTN in English, scheduled via CUBA at 03-05
in English, Cantonese. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 10 at 0337, no signal from R. Progreso. Have not
been checking for it much during short nominal sked, 0130-0500; has
anyone heard it lately? Only other 60mb Cubans, 5040 RHC and 5025
Rebelde are also off, tho 5025 is sometimes on. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Jan 10 at 0722, no signal detectable from R.
Kiribati, nor any other 9/kHz JBA split carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.018, Jan 10 at 2304, VOT English is on today
but with hum and way undermodulated, S9+30 into UTwente. By 2312 the
CCCCCCI from EAST TURKISTAN is on adding to the QRM and making a
rippling SAH since VOT is so far off-frequency. 2312-2328 `Weekly
Commentary` about the CFA Franc and Africa solving its own problems;
2332 next feature whose title I can never understand, something about
Tuerkiye`s Geo-something. Sign off and cut carrier at 2353* after only
a few notes of IS, no finesse --- either that or an extra hour in
German. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 344 MCW kHz, Jan 10 at 0727 UT, JA, 400-watt ND beacon at
JAxonvil FL, first heard tuned to 341 USB, along with EI EnId and OIN
OberlIN KS; also audible on 342 but did not realize it`s really on 344
until uplooked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Jan 10 at 2102, dash and PCO, HIFER beacon at
Pine, ColoradO. Seems several repetitions between dashes but
uncounted, JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2172 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday January 10 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+20 direct; 0152 recheck

after 0200. Next:

** U S A. 9330v, Jan 10 at 0735, 1544, 2105 random chex, no signal
from WLCR/WBCQ-6, so never on today? Wonder what`s the problem now.
Still no sign of frequency-agile capability (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 10 at 0010 notes from a phone call by George
McClintock of the real WTWW: 5085 #2 transmitter is now running 75 kW
to conserve electricity altho capable of 105. Ted ``destroyed
commercial broadcasting`` on the non-SFA transmitter as it has been
difficult to regain clients, who concluded SW is no good. Anyhow, #1
transmitter is disabled, lacking 8 cards to make it run at no more
than 75-80 kW. Has not had a chance to get #2`s 9 MHz daytime
frequency operational. Has photographic evidence of the messes Ted
left, even worse than the ones already sent me.

5085, Jan 10 at 0338, SFA talking about something happening in March
2022, so it`s not limited to hoary decade-old recordings of PPPP.
At least did not seem like a prophecy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 10 at 0747, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu X2, but
nothing audible on X3, 11835 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
