** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 23 at 0700, NO signal detected from R.
Kiribati at Kaneohe, Oahu SDR which used to pick it up reliably on N/S
antenna. And of course no trace direct as I used to often have it last
wintrish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 27, 4-1, KFOR, the NBC affiliate in the 50th largest
market, OKC, always has a hard time hitting the local ad cutaway cues
during NBC Eveningly News, by a second or split second. But on Nov 22
during 2330-2400 UT, there were several seconds of black silence, and
rejoining net with a story already in progress; get your act together.
Can`t this be handled accurately by automation? (Glenn Hauser, Enid,

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: Harold Frodge, MI, reports
about Tue Nov 21: ``9955 WRMI Radio Miami Int’l; 1405-1413+, 11/21;
Hauser’s World of Radio in progress to 1410 cutoff? Ian MacFarland
WRMI ID into odd chant. SIO=3+53 (Frodge-MI)`` Maybe that was the
`Thank You` show? I`ve asked Jeff to prevent this in future.

Jason, of Classic WBCQ Operations, replies about WOR missing from
7490+ and 5130.3, Wed Nov 22 at 2200: ``Hi Glenn, Sorry about that. We
have switched to an upgraded computer on 7490 and it's been a bumpy
ride with the changeover but it should be all fixed now. Jason``

Confirmed UT Thursday November 23 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+15/20 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thursday November 23 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9/+10
into Bonaire SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thursday November 23 at 0230 on WRMI 9395, S9/+25

Not confirmed alleged new time, Thu Nov 23 at 1500 on WRMI 9955 as
shown on skedgrid since last week. 9955 is not even on the air tho
sked shows it runs until 1600 or 1630. And not on webcast either,
rather music, fill? I`ve asked Jeff to clarify this.

** U S A. 7490+, Nov 23 at 0248, WBCQ is back on tho missing earlier
at 2200 Nov 22, WOR time. Only S8/S9 into Maryland SDR showing wide
variations from as low as 7490.515 to 7490.813; but a WWV calibration
check at 0304 finds it reading -66 Hz low at 10 MHz, -33 Hz low at 5
MHz, so about -50 Hz low at 7.5 MHz. The wobbliness may not be
noticeable with AM tuning. Back at 0255, WBCQ 5130.3 was off, 6160 on
with Hal Turner as -109 Hz, so corrected should be more like only -70
Hz. And at 0302, a music break sounds same on 6 and 7 MHz, probably
Hal amid his 2-hour broadcast on UT Thursdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 9955, Nov 23 at 0803, WRMI with TOMBS at S6/S9 but very
undermodulated compared to 9455 & 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Nov 23 at 1952, WRMI with VOA relay, VG into Maine
SDR like a local, but zero sig into UTwente, target Europe. Various
items, none concerning Ukraine, as Mike Cooper says `Flashpoint
Ukraine` morphed into `Flashpoint Global Crises` earlier this month,
first airings at 2200 UT M-F -- but are there any VOA English SW
frequencies then? So I was wondering if it would still be on WRMI at
1930, evidently almost 24 hours delayed. NOTE: on WOR 2218 I misspoke,
saying I was hearing it until 2200 on 15770 instead of correct -2000.
And during the remainder I did hear, anchor never named it even at
closing, just ``the program``, duh.

What about WRMI webcast? At 1950 it`s in Italian, then music, then
multi-lingual RAE ID reel. RAE Italian via WRMI is supposedly only at
12-13 UT M-F on 15770. Recheck at 2151 while 9955 is still off,
webcast now with VOA `African Music Mix`! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 23 at 0324, WTWW reactivated earlier than
expected, so all fixed already? S9+5/20 into Maryland SDR, very close
to on-frequency when corrected, likewise at 0325 into NH SDR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
