** CANADA. 15031 USB, Feb 6 at 1646, Trenton Military, ``no report
received`` on wrong frequency! instead of 15034. This implies that a
human being mispunched a frequency keypad; yet is oblivious to the
total futility and uselessness of these radiations. As always takes a
break at :00-:10 & :30-:40. And this at *2110 UT: back on 15031 into
VE6JY remote, with another slight problem, time as ``1610 UTC``
instead of EST. Meanwhile this came at 2010:

``Hi Glenn, Yes, the saga at Trenton Military VOLMET continues --- It
is observed today that the daytime frequency has shifted to 15031.0
kHz (vice 15034.0 kHz). 15031.0 kHz is a valid MACS frequency, but to
the best of my knowledge is still assigned as a "discrete"

That has given me another opportunity to fire off an e-mail to MACS
with regards to the frequency, the Eastern Daylight time zone (vice
UTC) and the NRRs. I did notice though that there was a couple of
valid reports today; Shannon and Keflavik. More to follow, Richard
Lacroix`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 6 at 0756, S9+35/45 of dead air in Spanish from R.
Rebelde (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. [WOR] EGYPT STILL OFF AIR - Re: Glenn Hauser logs February
4-5, 2024: ``9440v, Feb 4 at 2148, no signal direct from Cairo in English.
Something`s always amiss at Abis. 9440v, Feb 5 at 2150, no signal into
UTwente. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)``

```Hi Glenn, No transmissions monitored from Egypt on any of the
scheduled times as of January 28. I sent a message to ERU enquiring
whether they have discontinued short wave broadcasts. Here is the
reply just received:

``Thanks very much for your kind words. I'd like to tell you that we
have some problems in the building of the transmission centre of SW
radio tx station. Now, we are fixing it. Soon, every thing will go
well. Thanks again. Best regards. ERU Eng. Syed M.M``

Unfortunately he is not specific is to what these problems are. Since
the two transmitters (plus one reserve) are all off air, I am guessing
there may be issues with the power supply to or within the station at
Abis. Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.``` Feb 6 (via Glenn
Hauser, WOR)
