** ALGERIA. 9455, April 14 at 0346, Qur`an, S9+15/25, and still no
sign of WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 6754 USB, April 14 at 0336, S9+15, CHR, Trenton Military
with usual VOLMET, including lots of ``no report received`` from Italy
et al. Now giving own time checks only 4 minutes slow instead of 64,
e.g. ``0335Z`` at 0339. I suppose extra hour resulted from DST/non
confusion. The correxion first reported by Ricky Leong, Calgary at
0549 April 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, April 14 at 0350, RHC English ending `Arts Roundup`. It
seems Turkey is no longer here; and there`s a window in RRI usage
between 0300 and 0530. VG signal here but not measured; // 6000 hits
S9+50 with hum and undermod. And still 6165 is off. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

The harsh reality of the children of Cuban political prisoners and
their hunger strikes in protest -- Dixán Gaínza Moré remains at
Camagüey, and Erisdel Benítez Moya's protest cost him solitary
confinement. DDC | Madrid
Yuneisy Santana and her son visit 11J political prisoner Samuel Pupo
Martínez. (Yuneisy Santana González/Facebook)[caption]

While the children of Cuban political prisoners suffer separation,
their parents are resorting to hunger strikes in protest. For some,
this costs them even harsher situations within the already serious
conditions entailed by incarceration...``

** IRELAND. 5505 USB, April 14 at 0625, ``Shannon VOLMET`` ID by YL
voice among numerical obs, S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17480, April 14 at 0330, S4/S7 with flutter, one
station with sad wailing song of ME music; lotsa weak sigs on 16m band
but this is biggest and the only one below 17500; probably Turkish
jammer, if not Dengê Welat, which per Eibi starts at 0330 via
Uzbekistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, April 14 at 0630, S7/9+10 of dead air again from
XEPPM, a shame (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, April 14 at 0335, S5/S8 of JBM Josiah on
Station YHWH, the anti-Christ pirate. Walt Salmaniw, Rick Barton and
others catch him almost every night at times varying around this
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 7275, April 14 at 0332, S8/9+20 as VOT English
fails to be on totally wrong frequency 11875 tonight; horrible
accentedess ending `Did You Know That` segment. Also // 6165 much
weaker, then ``every hour always with you`` VOT promo, NOT. Of course
they are required to pronounce it ``Tuerkiye``. [see also KURDISTAN]

That reminds me, just in the previous semihour via OETA Create channel
on KETA 13-3 from PBS, `Travels with Darley` was about Turkey. Must be
a new one, as she keeps pronouncing it Turkey-Ay, stress on the final
long-A. Happens to be sponsored by Go-Tuerkiye, in closing credit
correctly pronounced (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2186 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Friday April 14 at 1430-1459 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 with deep fades
into noise but no jamming audible.

Joe Hanlon says one Vatican frequency changed since HFCC English sked
I cited: ``VATICAN STATE: On April 1 I noted good signal on Vatican
Radio's English service to West Africa at 2022 UT on new 11870,
ex-11825, // to 9705. It's 20-2030 daily, both fqs are direct from SMG
site.`` Next WORs:

Like our website, a noncommercial service for which financial support
is appreciated; thanks this week to Kelley Sprout, Hughesville PA, for
a PMO to
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; also address for checks
on a US bank

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, UT Fri April 14 at 0343, NO signal from WBCQ Radio
Angela, so this is what was missed per sked:

``April 13 (April 14 world date to 11:50 EDT/0350 UTC)
Enciclopedia musical de las Américas (Language: Spanish/Español)
Guest Host: Bill Tilford (US)
Format: Music from around the Americas. This month will feature music
of Uruguay``

Unfortunately, by design there is no alternative, webcast backup, not
even archived?? Was the entire 02-04 UT emission lost? Other BCQs were
operational: 6160- & 7490- both with TOMBS, 9330 WLCR nonsense (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4876 USB, April 14 at 0621, 2-way including laughter in
unknown language, unseems Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9683.9, April 14 at 0349, S5/S7 open carrier, fading
implying it`s not a local birdie. What could it be? Nothing listed
exactly here, of course. On 9685 only CNR5, Cross-Strait Radio from
Beijing site to Taiwan, unlikely to be off-frequency. On 9680, nothing
but VOH Africa, Zambia from 0400, per EiBi and Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 13755, April 14 at 0608, JBA carrier. This may
explain why RNZP moved to 13840 which is inbooming; but nothing listed
now on 13755 in Aoki, EiBi or HFCC. Or could it be exciter from RNZ
other transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
