** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Apr 29 at 2233, via Argentine
remote, LRA36 is still on air at recheck almost one bihour after
previous report when I suspended for other activities. But off by next
check at 2329.

Manuel Méndez, Spain, caught identities of the speakers I was hearing
in previous report; the YL is among the list of 5 Antarctic Women in
the new crewe reported before that: ``LRA 36 program with announcers
Juan Benavente "Uniendo Voces" and María Victoria Menéndez from the
new 2023 program "Ecos de la Antártida".`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 & 11760, April 30 at 1456, both RHCs are JBA carriers,
boding ill for Sunday Esperanto to follow at 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, April 30 at 0604, RNZI VG S9+10/20 direct,
found here after missing from 13840 at 0603. Another abrupt schedule
change; thru yesterday 13840 ran at 06-09 UT. Both equally good for
us, but maybe 13840 was not working for main Pacific islands target.
That may have been temporary due to geomag storm a week ago, but
wintry MUFs after dark may also be falling. Revised sked then on
website now shows 11725 straight thru from 0559 to 1258; preceded by
15720, followed by 7440: https://www.rnz.co.nz/international/listen
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. I sent this to KUCO April 29; times CDT = UT -5:
``I could hardly believe my ears Saturday afternoon listening to KUCO,
when music programming was twice interrupted for full-blown
commercials, could be originally TV sound. At 4:01 pm, Texoma Buick
Dealers. At 4:18 pm, T-Mobile. The first time I was listening to
stream, and double checked whether I had anything else running: no.
The second time I had switched to direct reception on 90.1. Thus it`s
clear these were actually transmitted by KUCO. I would be extremely
interested in knowing how this possibly could have happened, hopefully
assuming it was not intentional! Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` (Glenn
Hauser, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday April 30 at 1515, REE N American frequency is
OFF again today, while 17715 for SAm is JBA S3/S5 at least vs noise to
Bonaire SDR. Something`s not right at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY. 11785, April 29 at 2254, VOT checked just in time via
UTwente to confirm it`s not off the air today as usual incomplete
sign-off airs, 2255 IS; pause at 2256 restart IS with extraneous
German IDs interspersed before shutoff at 2258+* S9+40/50 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

*NOTE: rather belatedly on April 30 we see this advisory on the website
``NB - As of March 7th Unique Radio is ceasing streaming and shortwave
broadcasting due to some security issues being experienced. Podcasts
are continuing. Most producers have decided to continue on the podcast
platform. Jen's streaming of her programs continue on the 'Jen Listen
64K ' button above.``
Yet the ``schedule`` still shows WOR at the former times, so I suppose
SW and/or streaming could resume just as abruptly? Sun 0800 & Wed

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. (7490-), April 29 at 0000 UT, I start semilistening to
`AAAWWW` on WBCQ webcast. It`s not long before they refer to Pres.
Biden as a ``criminal`` and laud T**** who really is a criminal. I can
hardly stand to keep on it, but recheck toward the end. For once, new
Free Radio Weekly has arrived on time tnx to this week`s rotating
editor Harold Frodge. AW picks a few items to read cold, never with
full details beyond frequency, station, type of programming. One of
those was R. Eastern Star on 7400, reported only by never mentioned,
yours truly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555 USB, April 30 at 1454, WJHR with dead gospel huxter,
S9+10 while 15770 WRMI & 15825 WWCR are JBA carriers: a fine example
of a sporadic E MUF working from a limited area, between the other
two. In ordinary conditions, WJHR is JBA at best, running a few kW?
always despite licensed minimum 50 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
