** CUBA. 15140, Jan 16 at 2052, no signal from RHC English; not at all
from 2000? Something`s always wrong at RHC. Next day Jan 17 at 2000 it
is on, S7/S8 into Maryland SDR, but somewhat distorted, undermod and
noisy. SAWA. But at 2032 recheck direct: it`s gone again. SAWA.

BTW, Sunday Esperanto this week Jan 15 reported by Ivo Ivanov at 2132
on 15140; previous weeks was on 13680. Certainly not at claimed time
of 2330 on 15730. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Jan 17 at 0720, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati;
no others. If I were bandscanning later, I might detect more TP from
PacificAsia; earlier, more TA from EurAfrica (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Jan 17 circa 1630 UT, Enid`s only local TV signal
is on the air again, K17JN-D, after latest AWOL starting Jan 5; but
never any local origination! Main channel is 3ABN TV, plus 3 AV
subchannels and 3 audio-only, including Radio 74 which is also on the
KIEL, Loyal 89.3 FM transmitter. Such audio-only on a multi-TV
channel, translator or otherwise, I have never encountered elsewhere.
Is it widely done, or only by Three Angels? TitanTV listing for 3ABN-E
as a cable channel still shows episodes about Adventist World Radio,
UT Thu Jan 19 at 0430 and Sat Jan 21 at 2030, and more Jan 26 & 28
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Jan 16 at 2300, no signal direct from VOT
English to N America. 2330 check at UTwente: nothing but Chinese from
XJPBS, East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uyghurs and other Moslems. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.

5960.001+, Jan 17 at 2343, undermodulated Turkish music into Maryland
& UTwente, so VOT not off the air today unlike yesterday. 2352 s/off
in English and this time S9+30, well atop the CCCCCCI even into
UTwente. 2353 IS starts repeating; and 2355 German IDs intersperse as
they are no longer allowed to pronounce it ``Türkei``. Here we go
again? 2359* chopped off, uncovering XJPBS much louder modulated.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 337 MCW kHz, Jan 17 at 0727 UT, FF, 25-watt ND beacon at
Fergus Falls, Minnesota. I was tuned to 335 USB: not unusual to hear
NDB 2 kHz below real frequency. A new one for me, at last! F.F. is a
town of 13K between Moorhead and Alexandria in west-central MN on
I-94; 1109 km or 689 statute miles from Enid = 27.5 miles per watt. I
once had a presumed log of KJJK 1020 in F.F. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2173 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday January
17 at 0158 just in time the 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20 into Louisiana
SDR. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [canceled!]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

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

WORLD OF RADIO on WRN via satellite and webcast: rechecking skeds Jan
17 I find it no longer on a daily basis at 1330 to Europe, but Sundays
N America/Africa/Asia/Pacific: 1700 & 2030 Sat; 0230 Sun & Mon; 1130
Europe: 1700 Sat; 2100 Sat & Sun; 1330 Sunday.

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

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 17 at 0745, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu, 2 x
3945; and 11835 a JJBBA carrier on 3 x 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7780, Jan 17 at 0030:00, since Jeff assures us the noise
bursts on this frequency are not produced by WRMI, I am investigating
further, on a night when programming other than WOR is scheduled: the
bursts start at precisely the bottom and top of hours and last 14
seconds, quick pause and one more split second burst. The S/N ratio
varies depending on which remote location is monitoring. At Maryland,
noise does not totally override WRMI; at Louisiana yet where WRMI is
stronger, it does. At 0100:00 and 0200:00 during TOMBS the same thing
happens at Maurice. Next check at 0330:00, another burst at Maryland.
At 0400 I am monitoring Maryland one more time and looking at the
waterfall. This time I can see identical size and length bursts not
only on 7780 but also on 7760 and 7792. At least they are not
broadband. So WRMI might escape them by moving to 7730. My other
suggestion is that WRMI shift all 7780 programming 15 seconds later.
That might make it harder to coördinate with WRMI System and frequency
switches, but that might be a lesser evil. Do these also fire when
WRMI is not on 7780, such as in daytime? FWIW, Jan 17 at 1930 & 2000,
nothing into Maryland SDR. But whence, and why? Altho the noise might
convey some data in some mode, these act like they are just
channel-stakers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0006 UT January 18
