** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 13755, Jan 24 at 0740, RNZP is S6/9+10 with
``Melanesian Update`` in Pidgin, mentions Vanuatu. Would be the OSOB
if not for JBA on 13860, so it`s the SSOB. 13860 is NHK Japanese
direct to S America from 0700. That`s 4 am local at the latest, as
the JJ migrants must be real early-risers? Sked for Tue in NZ DST

``8:28 PM. Melanesian Update includes Pidgin News from Koroi Hawkins
followed by BuzzFM News from our partners in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

9:00 PM. ABC Wantok Program -- 30 minutes of news and current affairs
from ABC Australia from Monday to Friday in Papua New Guinea Tok
Pisin, Solomon Islands Pijin and Vanuatu Bislama pidgin languages``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 15385, Jan 24 at 1623, S5/S7 of talk with heavy Doppler
flutter unlike other weak signals on band. Only thing anywhen on 15385
in Aoki & EiBi is IRRS with Oromia National Media, clandestine for
Ethiopia, on M/T/W/F/S at 1600-1630 via Galbeni. Maybe longpath?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 13710.056, Jan 24 at 1628, Qur`an, SBA always
sorethumbly off-frequency on my morning bandscans but not measured for
longtime until now; 1657 checked at UTwente, AMsync shows 13710.051+,
S9+40/50! Some long pregnant pause at 1658 but still going at 1753;
scheduled 1457-1757 via Riyadh, but really chopped off abruptly at
1758* during Qur`an with no announcement; Allah`ll get `em for that?

There had been a het before, and now am hearing a tone at same pitch
locked onto 13710.314+, what? No other broadcaster sked now on 13710.
2205 & 2305 rechex, *still* S9 carrier on that exact frequency with
tone. Maybe something local at the SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003+, 2305 Jan 24, VOT S9+25/35 into UTwente,
good modulation with a bit of hum during news; 2306 something about
the Qur`an threatened by fascism? 2309 sports about a Russian/American
tennis match, and others in Australia. 2310 CCCCCCI starts from XJPBS,
but way under. 2313 Review of the Tuerkiyish Press. Qur`an incident in
Sweden, Erdogan uses it to diminish NATO chances; and a few other
brief items, over at 2315 already, to song break. 2318 Weekly
Commentary: on Turkey`s rôle in western security considerations, by
Duke Coffee?, of a DC think-tank, axually about Black Sea region and
the Russia/Ukraine war; cooperation in drone produxion between
Tuerkiye and Ukraine. Bottom line: Turkey is important! 2325
multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2328 song. 2332 VOT: ``always by your
side``, a rather meaningless claim, and more music. 2336 a recipe.
2339 violin music. And more music until 2352 sign-off announcement
starts --- but chopped off the air after only a few words, uncovering
XJPBS on 5960.000+. Beware: UTwente kept displaying 5960.003 from VOT
until refreshed. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Jan 24 at 1927, WLCR/WBCQ-6 is off again. Wonder
what`s wrong now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 24 at 0734, JBA carrier; 11835 JBA modulation;
3945 nothing as I finally check all three R. Vanuatu frequencies for
the price of one (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7550 AM, Jan 24 at 0733, JBA heavy beat as if music, but
nothing in EiBi or Aoki now; elsewhen 7550 is only a Uzbekistan relay
channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
