** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, LRA36 on again Sat Apr 1, first
notified to WOR iog: ``15476v USB LRA 36, 20.54 UTC audible with weak
signals in Elverum, Norway. Levi P. Iversen`` [who used to live in

I start monitoring at 2233 Apr 1, at first camping on Argentine SDR,
S5/S8 greeting Marambio Base. 2245 interview on phoneline with hum and
distortion, now hitting S9. Reconfirming there is still a reduced
carrier, JBA by tuning to 15475.0 USB. After 2300 ACI from 15480
China, and no LSB available to distance from it. I`m not listening
closely, too much else going on, but at 2336 Morse code catches my
ear. ID as LU1ZV, which is the ham station at Esperanza, but not on
ham band, also voice ID; 2343 Morse ID only again. April 2 at 0010 I
check for it direct and do detect a trace vs S5/S6 local hi noise
level. Back on remote, no longer hearing it circa 0145, maybe off? But
others report it still later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, April 2 at 0631, RHC English with UT Monday jazz show,
S9+10/20 undermodulated. Nowhere in the 5s, 6s or 11s this time, and
no CCI; but there might have been from Romania at 0530-0630, also
0200-0300 as duly registered in HFCC. NZ also has dibs on 9700 after
0700 but not currently using at that hour. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 3885+v, April 2 at 0615. Music in hamband, AM
subband area, last few notes of `When Johnny Comes Marching Home`.
Initially with het; trying to measure, off and on with bits of music,
like 3885.1, 3885.22, 3885.26. Nothing reported around here in HFU
recently or in the past week, but once something on 3724.8 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4810, April 2 at 0623, S9 of dead air vs CODAR, presumed R.
Logos, Chazuta which apparently often leaves carrier on overnight.
This time would have been listenable if modulated. Also a much weaker
JBA carrier on 4820, presumed R. Senda Cristiana. Seems the STANAG
4810+ from Martinique? is gone for good. Ron Howard reports:

4820, Radio Senda Cristiana (The Christian Way Radio) via Cotahuasi,
Arequipa, 0735-0805 UT, on April 2. Surprised by the very decent
reception! Perhaps the result of them still adjusting the new

0735-0758: Radio drama - my three minute audio -

0759: Unfortunately the 0800 ID was the weakest audio heard today,
otherwise decent modulation - my three minute audio is at
Ron, California``

Closest to an ID is mentioned at 1:36, ``R-R-I`` on Facebook,
presumably meaning Red Radio Integridad (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785, Sat Apr 1 at 2200, VOT English with VG
signal into UTwente, but I`m devoting full attention to OETA with PBS
show `Outside: Beyond the Lens` episode with stunning views in HD of
Zion and Bryce NPs in Utah. Video expires 4/8/23 it says here:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2184 monitoring: confirmed Saturday

** U S A. 9975, UT Sunday April 2 at 0320, KVOH is gone again from a
day & time it is supposedly scheduled. Did not notice whether it were
on or not, 24 & 48 hours earlier; how about 24 hours later? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, early UT April 2, WTWW-2 off again, not heard.
WTWW update from George McClintock, April 1:

Subject: WTWW: Harris SW100 results --- Mike Sabin {of TWR} working on
the Harris SW100. - Saturday. Driver tube working at last. Now high
voltage to be turned on next. Possible outcome:
A. High voltage will not come on.
B. High voltage will come on and arc, turning it off.
C. High voltage will come on and I will be able to tune up the
D. The unknown result.

Driver cover plate was missing from the driver tube causing it to not
receive sufficient air flow. I was unable to find the cover and had to
steal one from the Alaska transmitter in the middle building. Ted left
it off and was a serious mistake.

Switching modules received from CHINA, placed on burned power modules.
