** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Feb 22 at 0743, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati.
Checking Oahu SDR this date, Gary Pence, KM5X, reported: trace seen at
0741 but not at 0918. Wednesday has sometimes been an off-night for
them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Feb 22 at 2305, token English from SNR on subject
which does not grab me, so I`m mainly hearing simulTURKEY, q.v. But
all four frequencies are on in usual descending quality > 12030 >
11940 > 11685 into Maryland SDR. BTW, JRX in Paraíba says 9690 for NAm
is better there than 11940 for SAm. At 2315 interview about a Badajoz
carnaval and museum, and then about the same in Santa Cruz de
Tenerife, which she says is second only to the carnaval in Rio (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.003+, Feb 22 at 2301, VOT English makes in on air
today unlike last two nights, VG S9+30/40 into UTwente; news mainly EQ
stats such as official death toll now at 42,310. 2311 `Review of
Turkish Press` ending, also about that. 2312 promo acknowledging S&R
teams from abroad. 2313 `Whipping Piles` (?) about AI, such as a
painting program, Canvas. 2318 `Weekly Commentary` about PKK
terrorists [or sometimes sounds more like tourists] by
heavily-accented YL, and now she also has the CCCCCCI from XJPBS, std
denunciation, to cope with; criticising PKK for continuing to carry
out attax despite the EQ damage. 2324 outro inviting anyone to submit
their opinions by email for possible broadcast, and credit for this
one by name and institution totally unreadable. Music break until 2333
`Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring`, something about an anti-oxidant
supplement involving the liver; 2340 bit of theme music but continues
with more of same till 2342, then music break. After 2330 I`m mainly
attending NBC Afternoonly News. 2352 squeezes in the multi-lingual ID
filler reel, but chopped off the air at 2353.7* amid Swahili before
completed; so we don`t even get any standard s/off or IS. Opening
frequency for XJPBS now in the clear. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 365 MCW kHz, Feb 22 at 0747 UT, AA, 100-watt ND beacon at
Fargo / Harwood ND: only somewhat unusual one now (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 28243 CW, Feb 22 at 2134, EEEEEEEE DE WA6APQ/B, only one of
many in the 10m hambeacon subband; per WI5V.net ---

** U S A. 1130, Feb 22 at 2139 UT, dead air at S7 from KLEY Wellington
KS, still so at 2208; and at 2255 when an understation has become
audible, no doubt KWKH. This shows you how seriously Rocking M Media
takes its broadcasting business. Long spans of dead air or off-air
have happened several times before. I wonder if their 100.3 translator
still modulate; doesn`t reach here. BTW, radio-locator.com shows there
is another KLEY on FM 95.7 in Jourdanton TX, presumably unrelated; as
FCC abandoned the idea of unique callsigns years ago if both parties
agreed to share. KLEY in KS has a sibling station on 1550 in nearby
Winfield, KKLE where I am not hearing it; had been reactivated at
least briefly some months ago // 1130 instead of two different
formats. 1130 carrier normally runs all night, modulated or not,
obviously 250 watt day power instead of one watt at night, to
detriment of KWKH which obviously does not care (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** VANUATU. 7260, Feb 22 around 0730, RV JBA here as usual, and no
7255- Nigeria (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9700, Feb 22 at 0726, S9+10 dead air and quite steady.
Currently a RNZP frequency not scheduled in Aoki & EiBi until *1651
much later; while 13755 is in well. Neither caught it that 9700 has
axually been heard as early as 1400 Feb 10, // 7390. Possibly a #2 NZ
transmitter test, but suspect RHCuba instead, while no other usual
frequencies are still on. Aoki reminds us Turkey here until 0656, EiBi
until 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 25975 LSB, Feb 22 at 2127, Brazilian 2-way;
26305.3 AM, Feb 22 at 2131, 2-way in English. I`m scanning the 11mb
portion 25800-26500 for any NBFM broadcast auxiliaries like KOVR`s on
26110, hitting nothing but these two (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
