** EGYPT. 9442.4816, quite steady, Nov 17 at 2138, R. Cairo, S9+25
into UTwente and JBM in presumed English. First I found it S4/S5
direct at 2118 on 9442.5 approx., trace maybe of mod and no sig on
9440! Something`s amiss at Abis; a different transmitter than the one
on 9439.995? Has been reported before on 9442, DX Fanzine:

``9442 22.10.23 2115-2125 EGY R.Cairo, Abis, EE: crash start on odd
freq, QRM from VO Korea in CC on 9445 kHz. 52442 PR = Rumen Pankov,
Sofia, (Bulgaria). RX: Sony ICF2001D. ANT rod for MW, Folded Marconi
antenna 16 meters long for SW`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598 USB, Nov 17 at 0742 UT, YL with marine weather
in English, JBA vs local line noise. DXinfocentre.com shows this the
first 2598 broadcast of the local day from 0737 UT, VCP-4, 3000 watts
from Placentia, which is on the west side of the SE peninsula. Nothing
at this time on 2749, altho closer 550-watt VCO Sydney NS is supposed
to start at 0740 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 7032 USB, Nov 17 at 0508-0530+, jazzed-up choral version of
the Soviet Hymn = Russian national anthem, played over and over in a
loop with brief pauses, every 3 minutes and 28 seconds. S8/S9 into
UTwente; did not try direct. Tnx to tip from Volodya Salmaniw, BC on
the WOR iog, Nov 17:

``[WOR] 7032 USB --- The Russian station with the loop of the Russian
anthem has been very strong for a few nights now into Masset.
Listening now at 0457 UT. I tried a TDoA last night which placed the
transmitter near St Petersburg, Russia. 73, Walt`` These have been
going on for many months, also on several other SW frequencies;
presumably to bolster patriotism while waging genocidal war against
Ukraine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 17 at 2300, VG direct with some fades, token
English from SNR; main news about Sánchez finally able to form a new
government. Palestine situation news including analysis from Beirut
correspondent. 169 evacuated ``Spanish Palestinians`` have arrived.
Feature following about an institute founded by American missionaries
to promote higher education for females (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 17 at 2300, VOT totally inaudible direct vs
high line noise level; 2324 via UTwente at S9+25/35, S9+15/20 into
Maryland, during multi-lingual ID filler reel, music. 2329 `Feeling
Supreme/The Healing Spring` but missed topic. 2336
``always-by-your-side`` promo, `Did You Know That` repeat about the
Angora rabbit. 2341 ``with you every hour`` promo, music. 2345
``a-b-y-s`` promo again! and music. 2350 s/off by the badax, and
reciting the now totally wrong A23 schedule for four other English
broadcasts: all times wrong, all frequencies wrong! 2351 IS; 2357 one
German? ID inserted but soon chopped off* uncovering the understation
CCCCCCI. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 329 MCW kHz, Nov 17 at 0736, PMV, ND beacon is JB readable
despite line noise level on LW of S9; unlike any others in bandscan,
not even local 341 EI. PMV is 25 watts from Plattsmouth, NE. That`s
just south of Omaha where the combined N&S Platte Rivers flow into the
Missouri (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: confirmed Friday
November 17 at 2140 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9/S8
into UTwente remote, reaching across Europe, no need to check nearby
Noale SDR as usual. NO co-channel QRM and quite readable with some
fades; ACI splash from S9+10 Spanish on 1314, i.e. three RNE Radio 5
synchros of 25 +10 + 10 = 45 kW. Also confirmed at same time almost
synchro on WRMI webcast only.
