** CUBA. 6000, Dec 21 at 0430, RHC S9+30, English, undermodulated and
attracting local hum level as other very strong sigs. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 408 kHz MCW, Dec 21 at 0437, JDM is JBA, 25 watt NDB from
Colby KS in the NW corner, nickname `Wheatfield`. Altho there is now
zero Blitz stormnoise across North America, I am still hearing hardly
any MW/LW beacons - not even 332 IC Wichita, and nothing from Canada.

JDM is seldom heard; probably my unIDs Dec 10 at 0419, and Nov 5, 2023
at 0311. Last definite log was Nov 13, 2021 at 0715, when I added: My
previous log from 2020y bears repeating:

```408-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0643 UT, JDM, 25-watt NDB at Colby -
Wheatfield, Kansas. One wonders how a call with no connexion to the
listed location came about? So I try searching on JDM Colby, finding
``Colby Howard Lands at JD Motorsports For Majority of 2020``
about NASCAR - that`s a stretch! Further down are linx to JDM as
NAVAID, but no call significance. Even further down, there is a JDM
Enterprises, LLC, in Colby among 55 other places:
but what does it do?`` Do they have a private airstrip in Colby?```

I had also logged it a number of times earlier in 2020y but not before

** U S A. 3215, UT Thu Dec 21 at 0432, WWCR-1 still suptorted tho
S9+20/30 with a different program than previous nights, so not the
programs` fault. I was about to say that same WWCR-1 unit when on
15825 daytimes did not have this problem: but now it does at 1634
check Dec 21, S9+25. The other three, 13845, 12160, 9980 are very loud
and clear. Something`s not right at Nashville (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2222)

** U S A. 9330, Dec 21 at 0738, zero signal from WBCQ with WLCR;
wonder what`s wrong now? Definitely back on at 1746 check (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
