** ALGERIA. 17600, Feb 2 at 1627, RTA in Arabic, S6/S9 with unusual
short/long path echo. Direct short path at ground level is 8441 km.
Earth`s equatorial circumference is 40,075 km, so long path would be
31,634 km. Difference between LP and SP = 23,193 km. Speed of radio,
299,792 km/sec. Therefore the delay is: 0.07735 second, or about 1/14
of one second which would be 0.07143. All these figures slightly more,
bouncing up and down from the ionosphere (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 224 MCW kHz, Feb 2 at 0800 UT, dash and DN, a new beacon
for me and a VG one! Only 25 watts and listed as decommissioned at
dxinfocentre.com, from Dauphin, Manitoba, which is 1650 km away = 1025
miles at 41 miles per watt, if the path were along the ground,
slightly more via ionosphere.

233 MCW kHz, Feb 2 at 0800 UT, dash and BR, which is 200 watts at
Brandon, Manitoba; last heard Feb 10, 2021 at 0706.

250 MCW kHz, Feb 2 at 0759 UT, dash and FO, 1600 watts at Flin Flon,

I seldom hear anybeacons below 248 WG Winnipeg, let alone any
superpower Euro LWBC; I suspect my R75 and E/W longwire are losing
sensitivity that low. Habitually to avoid MW overload images, I DX
longwave above 350 with both preamps off, below 350 with only Preamp
1. But this time I`m on Preamp 2 but with separate ATTenuation
engaged, which may make the difference (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, R. Kiribati: since had not detected
it lately after 07 UT direct as JBA carrier, wondering if off the air;
so checking Maui remote SDR, Feb 2 at 0526 an hour after local sunset,
not even a trace on the waterfall; while 850 is a JBV trace from Hilo:
o, that`s because this SDR is on a 75 meter Beverage [sic] aimed

So over to the Kaneohe, Oahu SDR which has a 220 foot N/S
non-terminated Beverage, and there it is on 846, equal to 850 KHLO
JBA. Later tonight Feb 2 at 0746 UT I again try 846 direct and it`s
JJBBA there; while 1098 is much stronger: could that be V7AB, Marshall
Islands? Late but could also be Spain, as 855-2 and 1044 JBA carriers
likely are (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2175 monitoring: ``Hi Glenn, I
wasn't online today so this my first chance to report in. I DID listen
last night [Wed Feb 1] during the 1000 UT hour, and they did NOT have
WOR [at 1030 on WRMI 5850]. I stayed with it to see if the program
popped up later on, but went ZZZ myself by 1130 this time around. Best
