We were assigned a 10 m beacon frequency by the IARU Region 2 HF
Beacon Coordinator on January 12, 2011. The transmitter is a custom
built digital beacon producing 10 watts output feeding a Solarcon A99
half wave vertical antenna on 28.168 MHz. The antenna base is 48'
above the water. Vlad AA7DJ built the unit which is performing

Kah-She Island is a privately owned 25 acre island in Georgian Bay.

** EGYPT. 9440, Feb 14 at 2229, R. Cairo must be reactivated after
some weeks` missing from here for 2115-2245 English: S9/+20 direct,
undermodulated talk I can`t be sure is English, and some music.
2230-2235 signal seems to weaken and more distorted but not the
extreme as before. I undoze at 2246 to find it gone, just now? Can`t
tell without a remote UTwente check whether this is still/again 5 Hz
on the minus side. As of Jan 13 when it had been gone almost a month,
I quit checking for it frequently but occasionally. Since then no
other reports of 9440 while the 9900+ transmitter remained heard for
some other emissions. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser,

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Feb 14 at 0741, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati;
due to lightning skirting Enid, temporarily on indoor longwire of
unknown length, strung around ceilings of two rooms; and surprised to
be hearing this even a bit stronger than normally on external E/W
100-foot LW. But no other 9/kHz splits (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.001+, Feb 14 at 2346, VOT with sad song, S9+25 into
UTwente well atop the CCCCCCI; first checked direct at 2327, was S7/S9
also with sad song. At least the English broadcast is on air unlike
yesterday. 2353 s/off with full English sked but jumbled, 2355 IS,
2355.5* off unxovering XJPBS which is one Hz lower, 5960.000+, from
EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs
and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2177 monitoring: confirmed UT

** U S A. 5050, Feb 14 at 0157, WRMI Legends on NF for first time,
ex-4980; checked just after I hear some guy on 9395 talking about it
as registered 2300-0500. Music playing is `Telstar` by The
Tornado[e]s, a really neat tune and one-hit wonder. 0200 no ToH ID but
quoting Deuteronomy which ought to be off-topic! In this case, WWRB is
gone for good, yet Aoki still imagines it; so Ted ought to be able to
stay here, unlike a brief bit on 5085 which the real WTWW reclaimed.
4980 opened back up for East Turkistan a bit earlier along grayline,
that is, XJPBS Urumqi in Uyghur, std denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 9455, Feb 14 at 0736, no signal from WRMI-5, normally legacy
Fámily Radio hour in Spanish. Certainly not due to propagation, since
9395 inbooms S9/+10 with SMTV cult, and 9955 S9+20 with TOMBS cult. I
also notice supposedly 24h 9455 absent at various other daytimes
