** ALGERIA. 9500, March 18 at 0402, S9/+15 into Maryland SDR, sounds
like a national anthem; then at 0405, series of IDs twice in
something, English as ``Holy Qur`an Radio, Algeria``, French, Arabic.
Maybe the only/best time for such ID? Meanwhile I was also checking
5900 and heard nothing but TOMBS via Bulgaria. 9500 still on with HQ
at 0615. So it appears last night`s HQ on 5900 was a mistake, digits
reversed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Mar 18 at 2226, LRA36 is on
talking about Antártida, 2245 music, 2248 RAE multi-lingual IDs, then
LRA36, RNASG ID as ``15476``; 2250 seems live ID, then attributes
LRA36 to province of Tierra del Fuego; contact info, ``Uniendo
Voces``, acknowledging listeners. S7/S9 into Uruguay SDR. At 2335 I
have a trace direct, S5 = noise level. At least two guys keep
chatting, also mention Radio Club Quilmes -- that`s at the national
university in greater BsAs, somehow involved in these produxions.
Manuel Méndez, Spain says it started at *2059; will this be for
another six hours? Still going past 2400+. But back on original
frequency instead of recent 15474.98, presumably different
transmitters (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 11670, March 18 at 0656, RHC in English, S9+10 direct,
undermodulated, and nowhere else on 5, 6, 10, 11 MHz bands.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, March 18 at 0326, Station YHWH is on with
signature anti-Christ intonations of Josiah, S9/+5 into Utah SDR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 4015 USB, March 18 at 0327, S5 music into Utah SDR,
no doubt Russian ethnic pirate Vostochnaya Zvezda. After multiple TDOA
runs, Lucas Bandura is convinced this is in southern Arizona near
Mexico. HF Underground does not want any pirate DF/TDOA info to be
posted there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 5960, March 18 at 2300, VOT English manages to be on air
today, VG S9+30/40 into UTwente. News starts with Turkey approving
Finland for NATO membership following visit by Finnish president;
still not satisfied with Sweden. 2313 now with JBA CCCCCCI
understation, feature on Traveling I have not encountered before,
about visiting historic city of Artvin, near Georgian border at east
end of Black Sea coast. Over already at 2318, to be continued next
week, `The Captain`s Log`. 2319, `Whipping Piles` - Gripping Files?
about a national treasure in literature whose name I can`t copy tnx to
the heavily-accentedess. Maybe it`s Yas[h]ar Kemal, after some
searching, who was Kurdish originally. `Turkey`s Geo-marked Products`
ends at 2337. Music; 2350 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2353 s/off for
the 1330, 1930 and 0430 airings only, as if this one did not exist.
2355 IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs twice per minute. Still going
at 2400 timesignal and opening spurious German - for how much longer?
