** ANTARCTICA. 15476 RCUSB, Sat Feb 3 at *2300 as publicized 23 hours
earlier, LRA36 back with another broadcast, JBA S5/S6 = local noise
level direct, but S9/+10 into Argentine SDR - soon all four rx are
tuned to this and I get one of them. 2308 about history of base. 2310
the `Antártida` song we haven`t heard for a while; 2314 ``en vivo``,
``haciendo soberanía`` and then long interview about scientific
research, military involvement. Staking out Arg. ``sovereignty`` over
Antarctica is the real reason for all this, contrary to
``international continent`` treaties. 0010 Feb 4 still going asserting
it`s the first program of 2024. Wonder if this will be regular time
instead of 18-24+ UT Sats. Again I do detect the JBA reduced carrier
by USB stepping-down tuning, as someone else was doing before I
inherited the rx. Also wonder if the eventual new 10 kW will too. 0013
chops off air during music. 0015.5 comes back during music after a
false start; 0016 another ``haciendo soberanía`` ID, more gab. At 0019
I compare the pitch of the RC when tuned to 15475.50 USB vs 15476.50
LSB - and it is lower on the upper side, indicating the RC is slightly
above 15476 instead of below; and taking into account a slight
correxion factor when tuned to 15000.000 WWV. 0028 they say the new 10
kW transmitter will be solid-state and will build a different antenna
to replace the rhombic (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 3 at 0732, Fox movie fanfare of all things,
presumably R. Rebelde programming, into distorted music, S9+20.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5980, Sat Feb 3 at 0728, jamming vs WWCR leapfrog
mixing product of 5890 over 5935 another 45 kHz higher, which is S9
stronger than usual. At least Cuba tries to block it, hi,
inadvertently since the jamming is leftover originally against
long-abandoned R. Martí frequency. The mix overnight possible only on
weekends when 5890 be active. On inside randomwire due to T-storms
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 15140 & 11760, Feb 3 at 1637, both absent, the only two
midday frequencies. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Both also off
during English hour at 2015 check of Maryland SDR, but RFI Hausa from
FRANCE well occupies 11760 at 2000-2030 only. Bits of English into
translation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: noted in my logs even if not directly
related to radio. UT Saturday February 3 at 0525, my chair shakes
briefly. Altho there is a thunderstorm too, this timing does not
correlate with any thunder, which would not shake the ground like this
either. USGS report:

Magnitude ``5.1 - 8 km NW of Prague, Oklahoma, 35.534°N 96.764°W,
2024-02-03 05:24:28 (UTC) depth: 3.0 km``

At least 8 further quakes in OK were recorded in the next few hours,
max. 3.5 and unfelt here; and many more of lesser magnitude.
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003, Feb 2 at 2300, VOT almost accurate
timesignal, JB audible direct vs local noise level. Soon over to
UTwente where measured, much better S9+30/40 well above noise level
there, English news, songs, etc. 2331 `Always-by-your-side` promo,
more music. 2336 `With-you-every hour` promo, more music. 2341
`a-b-y-s` again, more music. 2346 `w-y-e-h` again -- TG for these
crutches!, more music. 2350 multi-lingual ID filler reel covers
another biminute of wasted airtime. 2352 s/off for 1330 broadcast
only, IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs. 2358 cut off uncovering the
already audible CCCCCCI, i.e. Xinjiang RTV from East Turkistan, land
of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems; vs
Turkey`s denied genocide of Armenians a century ago (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: confirmed UT

stemming from his 2020 election loss. Amid the presidential race,
examining the House Jan. 6 committee's evidence, the threat to

Which Drumpfsters should also audioview if they can summon up an open
mind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 3 at 0517.4*, WTWW-2 cuts off the air just as I
tune in. Had been running in background since cut on just before 0000,
and no outages noticed but could have been some. George says they have
a new heat exchanger so should be more reliable from now on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1240.19 approx., Feb 3 at 0745 UT, standout het.
MWoffset shows nothing so far off in US or elsewhere in WHemisphere.
On inside randomwire due to T-storms. Likely KCRT Trinidad CO, long
askew. Last logged on 1240.23 approx., Sept 6, 2023 at 0345. But
*still* not on MWOffsets list. Here`s a review of my logs over the
