** CHINA. 10000, Nov 11 at 0058, checking calibration of the NH
KiwiSDR, timepips neither WWV nor WWVH but almost in synch with them
way under. What`s this? 0059, BPM ID multiple times in Morse code, and
two voice announcements in Chinese just before 0100. WRTH shows
location Pucheng, not Beijing, 24h with 20 kW, also on 2500, 5000,
15000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 5910, Nov 10 at 0432, S9+40/50 of dead air with
some hum. Oh2, CRI relay via CUBA at 03-05 is back here for B-season,
ex-9790, obliterating Colombia`s only? SW station, Alcaraván Radio,
during a bihour of primetime. How rude. But it`s JBA underneath as
long as no mod from C/C, and slightly better with LSB tuning since
it`s more like 5909.96 - no het
audible. HJDH would be better off on 6010, but not completely; altho
6010 has Brasil, but NOT XEOI which Aoki still lists despite gone for
multiple years!

HFCC shows CRI 250 kW at 305 degrees thisaway in Eng and Yue, in
B-season use for many years; only other 5910 is !IRDR! = standby but
no disaster has ever? occurred meriting activation for relief! on this
or any other reserved frequency in each band. Available 24/7 to all 85
CIRAF zones, placeholder SMG Vatican site with 100 kW (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 5800, Nov 10 at 0431, pulse jamming vs nothing. WRMI ruined
this frequency forever by briefly putting R. República on it several
months ago. WRMI hours are now 22-04 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 10 at 0433, RHC with S9+30/40 of dead air except
maybe a trace of modulation. Nothing audible on X2 = 12000.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Nov 10 at 2117, R. Cairo at S9/+10 direct but JBM
music. By 2133 a bit better into Italian SDR, S9+20/30 in distorted
English, about ``around the world``. Something`s egregious in Egypt
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 6150, Nov 10 at 0434, Japanese, S9+20/30, mentions
``NHK`` pronounced as in English since JJ has no letters! HFCC shows
03-05, 250 kW, 140 degrees from Issoudun, FRANCE toward CIRAFs 37-39 =
Spain, across N Africa to Arabia and Turkey.

Stays on 6105 in Japanese at 02-04 via ISS at 290 degrees for CIRAFs
10-11, Mexico, C America, Caribbean but also hitting much of N
America. So, are there more Japanese speakers with SW in those zones
than English further north? Hardly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Nov 10 at 0438 UT, ND beacon SW is JBA. Sad
situation when this nearby Stillwater becomes DX vs OG&E`s line noise
level, worst on LW but extending to 25+ MHz. Four days later I am
still waiting for any response to my latest complaint Nov 6 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 10 at 2300, VG direct, token English from SNR,
still opens with B23 schedule but no language details, inviting
listener contact, no news and soon interview about a 300-piece art
exhibition from the Americas, Alaska to the southern tip; but sorely
lacking any visual content, this being SW, unlike lots of pirates, or
Radiograms, which manage somehow (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.002, Nov 10 at 2300, VOT is JBA to DX-398 portable but
at 2323, S9+20/30 into R75, something about Gaza; 2355 IS playing,
S9+25/35 into UTwente where measured; 2356 restart IS with IDs in
German; 2400 timesignal and s/on extraneous German, news until chopoff
at 2413* again, uncovering the CCCCCCI which was always an
understation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 26110 FM, Nov 10 at 1625 UT, KMK282 at KOVR/KMAX fades up
briefly in report about prospects for ski areas opening; never
reaching full quieting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2216 monitoring: add (Tunisia) to
contents. Confirmed Friday November 10 at 2130 on IRRS SW via AM
Italia, 1323 kHz only, still not on 918 or 207, ever? S9+10/20 into
nearby Noale SDR but with considerable pop music CCI. Certainly not
Iran nor 30 watts in UK, per MWlist leaving only this on extended
schedule; unless an unlisted pirate, unlikely:

** U S A. 7490 = 74 Hz = 7489.926, UT Sat Nov 11 at 0100, WBCQ opening
`AAAWWW`, but VP S4/S6 into New Hampshire SDR I have picked; and NOT
// 5130+ which stays with T****, and 6160- which stays with some
gospel huxter, and 3265+ not on the air; and 9330.00 stays of course
with the flat-earthers. So to really hear AAAWWW one must bring up the
webcast quickly - soon recognizing that it`s playback of last week,
pre-time-change, 68 degrees and Angela is ``half-naked`` as Allan
strives to make his listeners envious. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 711 kHz, Nov 10 at 0439, JBA carrier, no doubt Morocco`s
in occupied WESTERN SAHARA. Cursory check of 531-1044 kHz finds only
this TA, no Algerians 531 or 891, no Spaniards on 684, 774, 1044
