** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Saturday June 3 at 1844, LRA36 is
already on with good S9+10 peaks into Argentine SDR; usual
conversation and by 1910 some songs. Nominal sked is now 18-21 UT;
Manuel Méndez, Spain, was hearing it direct from 1801. So good into
Arg that it`s worth checking for at least a trace to here: nope, at
1921. And the signal has just weakened into Arg. At 1925 surges back
up so a transmitter or receiver issue, not propagation. But Magic
Flute from The Met is much easier on the ears. Still going at 2041,
weaker, and 2057 but not at 2204 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FINLAND. 11690, Sat June 3 at 0635, no signal audible direct, but
at 0645 a JBA carrier, presumably Scandinavian Weekend Radio during
its almost-monthly first-Saturday broadcast, which is supposed to be
24h on 11690 & 6170 only. Of course now it`s too late into the dayside
for 6170 to get out.

Walt Salmaniw, BC was getting it earlier, so I replied, ``note my
report of DRM on 11690 last night, NZ? Glenn``

Walt replies, ``Nothing that looks like a DRM signal here, Glenn,
tonight. The carrier is quite wobbly, as well, measuring 11689.939 at
the moment, as seen by this screenshot:

Closest DRM signal visible is Romania on 11740, scheduled in French,
and noted at 05:13 UTC, as I type this. 73, Walt``

His shot does show a brief bump slightly upward from that frequency.
The JBA carrier I had did not seem to be so far off, but I should have
tried to measure it as a clincher. Nothing else is listed on 11690 at
this time nor during most of the day; on until 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 3 at 0656, VON at S7/9+10 with some
undermodulation rather than none at all. Something`s always abysmal at
Abuja (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.006, Sat June 3 at 2205, VOT is not off the air
today, VG S9+50 into UTwente --- BUT, it`s in GERMAN, wrong language
instead of English!!! German has been on the program feed starting at
2300, and occasionally heard on 11785 after that hour when failed to
turn off in time. Maybe Turkey have added an hour of DST advancing the
clox? Or something`s totally awry at Ankara, hence erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2193 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday June 3 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+10/30 direct, doing better

Not confirmed UT Sat June 3 at 0400 on WBCQ 5130 - as addendum to R.
Angela, definitely off the air.

Confirmed Saturday June 3 at 1600 on WRN webcast of N American
