Saturday, November 25 2023

** FRANCE. 6000-6005-6010, Nov 24 at 0813, DRM noise S9+20. Nothing
listed in Aoki, EiBi, nor drmrx, but yes in HFCC:
6005 0800 0900 17,18,27,80 ISS 100 350 0 146 1234567 291023 300324 N
8500 Fra F TDF TDF 4089 DRM TES -- 350 is a very strange azimuth from
ISS; the CIRAF targets convert to France, UKQOGBANI, Ireland, Iceland,
Scandinavia including Svalbard and the uninhabited central North
Atlantic south of Iceland. See also UNID 7555 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290.003, Fri Nov 24 at 1853, JBV signal into UTwente,
locking onto exciter? *1857 pop up to full power open carrier on same
offset, 1859 IRRS/NEXUS/IBA s/on interrupts a few extraneous words
first and then JIP news, probably FSN. Before 1900, heavy ACI from
7285 China. Lunchtime for me. Recheck at 1944, 7290 is off! already
with heavy ACI from 7295 China in English. By 1957, CRI English on
both 7285 & 7295 vs no 7290. Aoki & EiBi both say IRRS site is
BULGARIA, considered confidential if not top secret by IRRS
``Milano``. But both Aoki & EiBi still show wrong summer time of
1800-1900 UT instead of 1900-2000 now. Aoki even still shows WOR at
1815-1845 Friday, canceled many months ago, but I was going to check
what occupy that shifted slot now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 2320 UT, ND beacon SW in
StillWater is JB readable as the local line noise has finally abated
considerably but still occasional bursts: audiblized are numerous
birdies on LW, nevertheless a good sign, rather than any DX beacons,
yet. OG&E never contacted me after latest complaint, so unknown
whether they really did anything (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 24 at 2300, token English from SNR, 2305 after
news, two interviews about molestation of children by the Catholic
church in Spain; a survey of 8000 adults found that 1% said they had
been. Even that is too much. A lot more of them were boys than girls.
VG S9+30 direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 21485, Nov 24 at 1524, R. Tamazuj via FRANCE is
in English! But heavy Afro accents, M&W hardly copiable but think they
mention elexions; and in and out of another language, presumably Juba
Arabic. 1529 past 1532 in Horn-of-Africish music, S5/S8. It`s the OSOB
except for the other Issoudun on 21690. Tamazuj has been known to
include English segments but not shown in EiBi; 21485 absent from
Aoki; HFCC shows only Apd language at 1430-1600, 250 kW, 135 degrees
from ISS. WRTH 2023 mentions no English either; but the name means
intermingling or mixing; that could be anathema to some faxions (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Nov 24 at 2314, VOT not off the air
with multi-lingual ID filler reel, S9+10/20 direct; 2323 outro for
`Weekly Commentary` - or was it `Weekly Analysis` -- what`s the
difference, something about Gaza; and with-you-every-hour promo. Then
via UTwente at 2348, S9+30/35 music. 2353 s/off, ``You have been
listening ---`` and chopped off the air! Too early is no compensation
for too late; but sked would have been wrong anyway. Uncovers the 6CI,
std denunciation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler, awry at
Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2218 monitoring: confirmed Friday
November 24 at 2148 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9/+8
into UTwente across Europe and no QRM; not bad for 858 km = 533 miles,
5 or 1 kW per mwlist, or maybe already the F.Pl. of 15?

Also confirmed Friday November 24 at 2300 the first SW BC, on WRMI
9955, JBA on the DX-398, but at 2315, S9/+10 into R75, undermodulated
with pulse jamming. Next:

** U S A [and non]. 9955, Nov 24 at 0747, WRMI-3 is S7 but just barely
modulated = JBM, during music presumably during TOMBS = The Overcomer
Ministry Brother Scare, also lite pulse jamming by the relentless,
clueless Cuban Commies.

9955, Nov 24 at 1521, WRMI is S8/S9, not off the air like it was
yesterday when WOR might have aired; Friday means Blalock the Blaster,
again very undermodulated: no one more deserving of that! But is this
transmitter about to die? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130.3, Nov 24 at 2313. WBCQ poorly audible direct with
music so unseems ATATT = all-T****-all-the-time; and yes, 7490 is AWOL
again so main programming probably transferred. Yes: at 0032 Nov 25
the `FKB` gospel huxter is on 5130+, tho normally preceding `AAAWWW`
on 7490 which is still off. Maryland SDR with correxion factor puts it
on 5130.414 at 0048.

At 0100 announcer reveals the following AAAWWW ``was originally
broadcast on Friday September 29, 2023`` --- WRONG! Content does not
match with my notes for the UT Sat Sept 30 program - sounds familiar
but obviously after the Oct 7 Hamas attack on Israel; and Angela is
obviously in the same studio, not remote (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7550-7555-7560, Nov 24 at 0809, DRM noise S9. Nothing at
all, DRM or AM, in Aoki & EiBi. HFCC has BULGARIA, wrong mode, wrong
time: 1700-2359, 250 kW AM at 110 degrees.

Does Spaceline even have DRM capability? HFCC by FMO inexplicably does
never specify N = DRM or D = NOT DRM:
This lists ``for new organization`` unspecified in 37 of the 48
entries, mostly wooden. Only others specified are 9 for Overcomer,
probably not all active; and 2 for Allan H Weiner = unactivated addons
really for wacko World`s Last Chance on 13850, 13840. Master HFCC B23
sked does show SPC with DRM on 5875, 15515. No 7555 entry here either:
I would not be surprised if it be another ISS test like logged a few
minutes later on 6005; see FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
