** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Feb 4 at 2002, LRA36 s/on again
after long music-only fill between broadcasts, managing to stay on air
since first heard via Argentine remote at 1515 as in my previous
report. I`m not paying attention to this replay but others monitor it
for hours more, with improving reception direct to Europe. Still going
at my final recheck 2123 music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Feb 4 at 2150, RHC very strong but somewhat distorted
in Brazuguese, // much weaker 11760. Per EiBi at 2130-2200, 13680 is
supposed to be Arabic to Europe; Portuguese on 11880; and 11760 off
from 20 or 21 until 22. Somethings` multiply wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. Re my Feb 4 report about 846, Ron Howard replies: ``Hi
Glenn - R. Kiribati with carrier at 0735 and still there at 0910 UT``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS. 6020, Feb 5 at 0738, JBA carrier, presumed R. Delta
International as reported active, also on 11730 per Manuel Méndez,
Spain but zero signal there for me (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Feb 4 at 2152 and 2228 recheck, pirate
music, S4/S6 direct. Many reports here between 2043 and 2340:
as Radio Free, Whatever. Earlier than I usually check or expect to
hear any pirates below 7 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6959.895 AM, Feb 5 at 0341, Mexmx S7/S8 into Utah
SDR; checked after many reports in the WOR iog. And ID at 0424 as
``ésta es la Zanahoria en Escabeche`` which means ``spicy pickled
carrots`` as had been heard two+ years ago. Ron Howard and I heard it
Nov 25, 2020 on 6924.884 and I copied the CW and voice IDs. More new
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. No tokEnglish from REE on Saturday but I recheck frequency
usage direct Feb 4 at 2149 and find it the same as Friday. 12030 for
ME is still missing; 9690 NAm, 11940 SAm, and weakest S1/S5, 11685 for
Africa are on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2176 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
February 4 at 2029 about 3 minutes into so started circa 2026 on
WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, VG S9+20 groundwave into nearby
Warrenton SDR but inaudible direct: wintry lowsun is over.

Confirmed Saturday February 4 at 2230 on both WRMIs 5850 and 15770.
Until the 2229.5 ID, 15770 is closing RTI in Spanish, something else
on 5850; then as heard on two receivers direct, they join synchronized
for ID and WOR 2176; 15770 S8/S9, 5850 S7/S9 with more fading and
noise, despite huge direxional advantage thisaway vs 15770 off the
side. Hope 5850 be much better closer to FL. Despite scheduling, WOR
had been missing from 5850 at this time for a few weeks.

Also confirmed UT Sunday February 5 at 0040 the 0030 on WRMI 7780,
S7/S9+5 into Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday February 5 at 0422 about 9 minutes into so
started circa 0413 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+22 into nearby SDR.

** VANUATU. 7890 & 11835, Feb 5 at 0739, no signals from R. Vanuatu
harmonix; wonder if changed schedule again. About Feb 4, Ron Howard
replies: ``Hi Glenn - R. Vanuatu off the air on all their known
frequencies (0800+ UT)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


Highly recommended, three <1 hour programs.
