** CHINA. 9985, Nov 13 at 0728, VP signal with talk, music, not
noticed before. EiBi shows it`s merely a CNR1 jammer vs Sound of Hope
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [and non]. Re: ``UNIDENTIFIED. 6085-6090-6095, Nov 12 at
0745, DRM noise S6. Nothing listed, but clues: Nov 11 HFCC shows
FRANCE testing DRM at other hours:...``

``I can confirm this is TDF - I received it here in NZ last night. Any
other details unknown. TDF seem to consider their DRM test schedule a
closely guarded state secret.``

As for Russia DRM on any frequency: ``These haven't been reported for
years. Purga in DRM was never regular anyway, normally just popping up
for a few days around the change of broadcast seasons on a selection
of frequencies totally unrelated to any registrations. I've seen no
sign of them this time on any SDRs around the place. Cheers, Chris --

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935 USB, Nov 12 at 2338, S9/+10 pirate seems a
novelty song. 2341 echoey unreadable announcement. Many logs here as
WENO Shortwave:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Nov 13 at 2300, token English from SNR, correct
timesignal unlike Turkey; news mainly about new government compromise
in Spain. 2307 feature is interview with co-authors of ``Why Empires
Fall`` just published in Spanish version; VG direct (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 12 at 2335 check, VOT is not off the air, VP talk

5960.005, Nov 13 at 2259, not off the air with timesignal about 15
seconds early, usual sign-on with English schedule, local times
mislabeled UTC. Something`s always awry at Ankara. At S9/+10 direct
might have been sufficient were it not for OG&E linenoise bursts
hitting S9+30/40. Later via UTwente at 2336, S9+25/35 `New Day, New
Choices` until 2338 music; 2343 `always-by-your-side` promo; 2344 `Did
You Know That` angora rabbits are from Ankara? music; 2352 s/off again
with times wrongly; 2354 IS starts; 2355* off revealing the CCCCCCI
understation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28202 CW, Nov 12 at 2320, EEEEEEEEEE DE WA7JYK/B, among lots
of 10m beacons beeping, I pick one. WI5V list: ``28.2020 WA7JYK C
Joseph, Oregon 10w 43'vertical formerly WB7EUX. 23 JUL 2023`` ---
``WA7JYK USA flag USA, TOM S BINGHAM, 406 E Third St, PO BOX 368,
JOSEPH, OR 97846, USA --- I changed my callsign from WB7EUX to WA7JYK
effective per FCC 7/11/23. WA7JYK is the original General Class call I
had when in high school back a LONG time ago. Beacon at 28.202.
Activated 12/3/2022. Please send me a signal report. 73!`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28216.5 CW, Nov 13 at 2306, dash and ID, N7MA call repeated
but not copied full loop; heard before. Per WI5V: ``28.2165 N7MA C
ROSE LAKE, IDAHO # 5W, VERTICAL New 23 December 09``. Seemed closer
to 28217.0 to me but not measured (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 35790, Nov 13 at 2317, intriguing JBA carrier again,
probably from R. Martí 3 X 11930 as discovered by Don Moman. Sporadic
E should audiblize it here eventually. Meanwhile we should also look
for other 3rd harmonix from Grimesland. Checking total spans of all
``GB`` 11 MHz channels in HFCC:

35160 = 3 X 11720, 2100-2200 only, VOA music
35580 = 3 X 11860, 1500-2300 RM
35640 = 3 X 11880, 0100-0200 only, Korea in Spanish
35790 = 3 X 11930, 1400-0100 RM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2216 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
November 12 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+10 into
nearby Noale SDR, this time with NO QRM: can only assume the Romanian
station extends a different schedule on Sundays than Fridays.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 13 at 0040 the 0030 on WRMI 7780,
S5/S7 into NH SDR way offbeam, with constant QlickRM, OTH radar?

Also confirmed UT Monday November 13 from 0400 sharp after JL gotta go
on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 -67 Hz = 6159.933, S7/S9 into NH SDR. Next:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to SW
1400 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 7489.9v, Nov 12 at 2310, this WBCQ is still AWOL for the
second day. Is on, weak 5130.357, S9+10 direct but VP vs noise level,
music, not T****, must be `Ginga Brasil`, since this is the second
Sunday. And next hour, `Le Show` with Harry Shearer has also moved,
0026 UT Mon Nov 13 into NH SDR measures 5130.346. Is there anything
about this on the WBCQ homepage? NO. Has AW twitted about it? I am not
about to sign up for disgraced X in order to access him; but will
accept second-hand info from those who are in/on it.

BTW, last night UT Sun when criminal T**** was replaced by more or
less ``liberal`` J P Ferraro on WBCQ 5130+, his cultists must have
been shocked by the sudden change. Hey, it`s all about Free Speech!
And keeping the ``7490`` primary program stream running, somewhere.
Altho Angela/T**** was not webcast, 7490-via-5130 is.

7490- still off the air Nov 13 at 2317 but 5130.293 is on at 2320, VP
direct, doesn`t sound like T**** and presumably still with `7490`
programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 12 at 2326, WTWW back on air tonight, missing last
night; gospel huxter at S9+40/50 direct. He`s trying to relate the
space shuttle Columbia to Obadiah IV if he can find it. It`s PPPP,
from shortly after the disaster of Feb 1, 2003, over a bidecade ago.
Who cares now what he said then about it? Who cared, then? But
curious, I uplook the quotation in KJVish: ``Though thou exalt thyself
as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence
will I bring thee down, saith the Lord.`` Ah, so God is against space
travel! Serves `em right! The Continental guy has also revived the JBA
spurcarriers about 5072.1 and 5097.9.

5085, Nov 13 at 2319, WTWW on air again with passé Pastor Pete Peters,
S9+10/30 direct. Did not notice 9475 back earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK,
