Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid, OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Monitoring `AAAWWW` on WBCQs, UT Sat Jan 14 from 0100, very
confusing situation. Started tuning at 0058 hearing the tail end of
the `FKB` gospel huxter with 3265.167 already on, S6/S8 into Maryland
SDR, and // 7489.928 which is his normal only frequency at 0000 UT
Sats. 3265+ is always way off/frequency+ whenever turned on, one hour
a week?

Then at 0100 I`m trying to listen via the (7490) webcast, which fires
an ID but then some other music, not `William Tell Overture` theme.
Back to SW: at 0101, WTO is playing on 6159.936v. Then I check the
(6160 Area 51) webcast, and it is still playing music other than

Then I`m forced to listen on SW only, 5129.996 slightly better than
6160v better than 7490v; Allan opens as on ``5130, 6160, 3265`` as
well as 7490; fiddling with levels. Angela is ``there`` on a remote
lo-fi phoneline. During the hour we hear very little from her as more
inconvenient for her to interrupt his monologs.

For Allan is in Master Control, Monticello, first time in a long time.
Starts to give top frequency as 7415 which was changed years ago to
7490. 0105 takes a call from Larry Will, who informs him that the
webcasts are not working and 6160 reception for him in MD is poor. As
far as Allan can tell, everything is OK, the show audio going into the
webcasting inputs -- but Larry and I know better by axually monitoring

To my great surprise, the new WORLD OF RADIO 2173 starts playing at
0108 on the Area 51 webcast only, straight thru to 0137, no ID and
then starts some music. This could hardly have been accidental: a
bonus from Larry?

AAAWWW continues to be audible only on SW transmitters. Allan has been
explaining SW propagation, how fluorescent lights work, blue light
being bad for you; until 0136 announcing as quadricasting from MC#1 in
M`cello, on Friday The 13th, 2023, but I think he omitted the month.
0137 I recheck the (7490) webcast: now silent, no music but the timer
is running.

Says it`s snowing in Maine, while Angela has been blanketting horses
today, i.e. still stuck in chilly Fla. Then Allan talx about how for
fun, he has been working on an Atwater-Kent radio a hundred years old,
which worx after a few repairs. He was surprised to find that
resistors were in the form of mere wires back then. 0147 prompts her
for ``Angela`s Angle``, but she was not ready with anything. Nor have
we heard any such regular prepared commentaries from her elsewhen.

Allan asserts that inflation is much worse than the government
figures. 0152 admits that `Financial Survival` has left WBCQ but
continues elsewhere - WWCR, WRMI? So its M-F 21-22 UT hour on 7490 is
now an Available Time Slot for something else or for F.S. to return.
Meanwhile it`s being filled M-F, not just Wed before WOR, by JP`s old
record show.

0153 spends more time than usual reading items from Free Radio Weekly
just out, as when Harold edits on rotation, it`s prompt. Always has to
mention Ball Smacker Radio as Angela`s ``favorite`` --- is she a
bowler? Bowless? This goes on until 0159 high time for a prayer. Note
that this week there was hardly anything political! No dissing of
Democrats. No reference to ``our president``. Could they be realizing
they have been delusional about T****? Too soon to tell.

They run past 0200 Hal Turner time, but there is dead air past 0201 on
7490, 0202 finally music makes 7490 webcast come to life and match
7490 SW but still no Hal. 0204 switch to apparent Hal`s music as
someone mutters, ``do it this way`` twice. 0205 Hal finally heard
saying he is ``restarting`` so evidently some mixup on his end too -
or he was depending on hearing himself on SW and/or web. Tuneout!

** U S A. 9455, Jan 14 at 0715, this WRMI at S9+20 is splattering
badly to the lower side, audible as far down as 9220, peaking about
9422, and even QRMing 9330 WBCQ which I first suspected as source, but
matched modulation peaks to 9455 on another radio. Notified Jeff 10
hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7890, Jan 14 at 0709, JBA carrier from 3945 X 2
Radio Vanuatu, while 11835 = 3 X 3945 achieves some sound at S4/S5.
MUF is up with 13755 NZ booming S9+10/20! in Saturday night request
show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
