** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat March 4 at 2037 I posted to WOR
iog: ``[WOR] LRA36 imminent again --- Reminder that LRA36 Antarctica
is scheduled to start another 6-hour broadcast shortly at 2100 UT
Saturday March 4 on 15475.98 RC USB. Usually is on somewhat earlier
with musical prelude. Glenn``

Manuel Méndez, Spain, quickly replied that it came on at *2040, and
then many other reports of it, but I did not get it until 2335, S7/S9
into Argentine remote. 2342, Morse code and English: ``CQ, CQ from
LU1ZV,`` mentions Feb 24, and apparent replay here of the real ``ham
broadcast`` last week on 14336 USB, ``Antarctic Radio Bulletin`` with
efemérides for various Feb dates, ``Uniting Voices``. Seems to imply
that regular sked of LRA36 will be Wed at 20, Sat at 21 UT. 2359
mottoes, contact info, whatsapp for LU1ZV. March 5 at 0001 autoID in
Spanish, music; recheck at 0020 already off: so much for a ``6-hour``
broadcast. Bruce Churchill, listening via VE6JY remote in Edmonton,
says carrier cutoff in midsong at 0018:15* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. March 5 at 0747, NO RHCs to be found on 5, 6, 10 or 11 MHz
bands; boding ill for Esperanto Sunday at 0800. A carrier on 12120
might have been 2 x 6060, and no other broadcast now on 12120 per Aoki
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9330, Sun Mar 5 at 0759, Spy Numbers presumably about to end
non-daily 0700 transmission; and no sign of WBCQ/WLCR (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA [non]. 6030, 7355, 7435, Sun Mar 5 at 0749, 0806, R. Martí is
still on with bigsigs in Spanish, like S9+30/40 with hardly any
jamming audible. Had been totally off SW 05-11, or 7435 off at 05-13.
Wonder why the stepup now, all night? Cuban jamming had been running
already just in case (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 13860, March 5 at 0744, ballad song and Japanese talk,
S8/9+10, another bigsig on 22m besides 13755 NZ: NHK at 0655-0900.
HFCC shows 85 degrees for CIRAFs 14 & 16 = Southern Cone of Chile,
Argentina, and parts of neighboring countries: that`s 4-6 am local,
where there must be a lot of JJ migrant early-risers? Probably also VG
to Hawai`i flanking midnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, March 5 at 0808, no JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, presumably another silent Sunday; nor any other 9/kHz splits
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, March 4 at 2228, no signal from SNR ME frequency,
while the other three are well audible direct: 11940, 9690, 11685. If
it`s Sunday, there is no English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.016, March 4 at 2319, VOT English is on, S9+25/40 into
UTwente with fast SAH, presumably from XJPBS closer to on-frequency.
At 2321, ``Always by your side`` promo but now reads 5960.004: unclear
if TRT axually shifted or is locking onto understation? And song. 2326
salute to foreign Search & Rescue teams. 2328 YL with ``whipping
piles``? about how gratitude is the path to happiness. 2333 `ABYS`
promo again. 2341 recheck ``VOT always with you`` variation promo,
`Turkey`s Geomarked Products`, i.e. apples. I`m trying to monitor
ANTARCTICA at same time. 2356 VOT IS is playing before closedown
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2180 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
March 4 from 2028 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+20 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday March 4 at 2230.5 on WRMIs: 5850 S9/S7 direct
vs HNL; and // synchronized on 15770, bettter S6/S8.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S8 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 5 from 0414 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
nearby SDR not available, but respectable S5/S8 into Maryland SDR.

Like our website, a noncommercial service for which financial support
is appreciated; thanks this week to Kelley Sprout, KB3LR, Hughesville
PA, for a postal MO to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA

One may also contribute by cheque on a US bank to above address; or
via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, March 5 at 0745, JBA presumably really WRMI running
all-night on high band with TOMBS: yet amounts to SSOB vs several JBA
carriers lower on 15 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835 & 7890, March 5 at 0805, no signals from RV
harmonix. Manuel Méndez heard 7260 closing at 0659* but then not heard
on any other known frequency. Tony Rogers, BDXC-UK agrees but live
stream was working until 1102* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710 kHz, March 5 at 0810 UT, concluding my 9/kHz split
TA/TP bandscan on 1709 USB detects two JBA carriers beating here;
usually just one. There is a part 15 Spanish church station in
Lexington KY, and TIS possibilities further east among many others
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1829 UT March 5
