** ANTARCTICA. Just in from Manuel Méndez at 1708 UT Jan 21: ``Hola
Glenn, pregunté hoy a Juan Benavente sobre la posible desmantelación
de LRA 36, y me dice, y además me pide que lo haga saber en su nombre,
o sea, que se nombre a él expresamente, lo siguiente:

1º Juan Benavente sigue vinculado a LRA 36 a través del Comando
Antártico Argentino.

2º Los rumores sobre la privatización de la Radio Nacional Argentina
son rotundamente falsos e intereados, realizados por la oposición
política argentina, pero, repite, son rotundamente falsos.

3º LRA 36 no solo no va a desaparecer, no va a ser desmantelada, sino
que, todo lo contrario, va a ser potenciada, recibiendo nuevo
material, entre el que se encuentra el nuevo transmisor de 10 kW. Se
están organizando para salir al aire con la nueva temporada.

Por favor, tradúcelo y hazlo saber en nombre de Juan Benavente, me lo
pide él expresamente. Un cordial saludo.``

Google translation improved by gh:

Hello Glenn, I asked Juan Benavente today about the possible
dismantling of LRA 36, and he tells me, and also asks me to do so in
his name, that is, to expressly name him, the following:

1st, Juan Benavente remains linked to LRA 36 through the Argentine
Antarctic Command.

2º, The rumors about the privatization of the Argentine National Radio
are flatly false and self-serving, made by the Argentine political
opposition, but, repeat, they are flatly false.

3º, LRA 36 not only is not going to disappear, it is not going to be
dismantled, but, on the contrary, it is going to be enhanced,
receiving new material, among which is the new 10 kW transmitter. They
are organizing to go on air with the new season.

Please translate it and let it be known in the name of Juan Benavente,
he expressly asks me to do so. A cordial greeting (via Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA [and non]. 5800, Jan 21 at 0808, wall-of-noise jamming not
against nothing since there is also an open carrier, totalling S9+20,
no doubt WRMI-10 which is supposed to stop at 0400* after 0300
`Freedom Synergy Radio`, which Needs To Be Jammed since it`s
pro-Taiwan, hence anti-Commie, ergo anti-Cuba. WRMI skedgrid with yet
another self-contradixion: only the transmitter/frequency atop shows
FSR, as System B that hour on 5800; while 9955 switches to System H
for Czecho/Slovakia relays. The program sked below does not show FSR
anywhere, Cz/Sl on 9955 as System B. But Prague also at 03-04 on 9955
as System H, blank at 04-05; and 5800 unaccounted for on any System
after 0300! So I`m not sure if FSR be on the air at all now. BTW, 5800
supposedly on all day long 14-21 Sabbathdays only with TOMBS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 1640 kHz, Jan 21 circa 0200 UT, I notice that local
KZLS Enid is OFF! No loss at all since it`s 100% // 1390 KCRC Enid,
and 100% sports, mostly stupid ballgames, I assume. So what else may I
hear on 1640? At 0404 I get around to checking: dominant looping
NNE/SSW but some fades/out/in is a monolog about diversity at United
AL, supposedly supported by FAA. Do we want anyone piloting with *any*
disabilities? No commercial breaks for at least 15 minutes; by 0420
ridiculing ``diversity``. Then I scan the entire MW band on another
radio for anything // - finding only one, but right away on 1690,
looping NW/SE. That clinches both of them among the few stations on
both frequencies per NRC AM Log:

1640, WSJP* Sussex WI; and 1690 KDMT* Arvada CO, both *non-commercial
with Relevant Radio religious network. Furthermore, I listen to the
Relevant Radio livestream around 0440 and hear the same topic, same
program, which is `The Patrick Madrid Show (repeat)` at 0200-0500 UT
Sundays. Hardly an improvement over stupid sports talk. Recheck at
1628 UT Jan 21, KZLS still off. Anything else to be heard at low noon,
which is always 1832 UT here? Circa 1815 not even a JBA carrier on any
of my receivers, antennas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, UT Sat Jan 20 monitoring of KUCO anomalous
programming again. From 0500 `Music from the Hearts of Space`, but
0600 followed by the other new `ambient` music show `Beyond the
Barrier`, with a second hour from 0700. Wasn`t awake to check further
into night but presumably no PVDG classical DJ hookup as on other
overnights, but happened to awaken at 1100 UT to hear `Beyond the
Barrier` starting again, maybe its second hour again like 0700.
Skedgrid still claims that is at 12-13 UT Sats = 6-7 AM CT, with 06-12
UT unaccounted for! And BtB still not added to the alfabetical list of
programs (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. Since I report on VOT so much, this from Alan Holder Jan 21
is pertinent:

``[WOR] TURKIYE - VOT English service Letterbox programme returns
January 21 -- The last time I heard "Letterbox" on Voice of Turkiye
was in August 2020 if I remember correctly. After many requests by
myself (and others no doubt), I was pleased to hear the programme
return to the air today, acknowledging letters from some listeners in
South Asia and from Ireland. The presenter, as previously, is Halil
Ibrahim Sarikaya.

There were a few changes to the weekly English language programme line
up from January 15, with "That's Why" and "The Energy Agenda" being
new. They are also repeating the series "Turkish Folk Tales" heard a
while ago and they now have a weekly Sports round-up.

Glenn's "badax" announcer has also given out her name, which is Efsun
Duri Elgeler (I think I have the surname spelt correctly). Alan
Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2226 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday January 21 at 0100 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR vs
Cuban pulse jamming. Bonaire uptied firstly but at 0115, S7/9+10 with
heavier jamming yet still 100% readable if you upput with it.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 21 at 0418, about 4 minutes into so
started about 0414 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, sufficient direct. Next:
