** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Feb 11 at 0100*, LRA36 off exactly as
scheduled, concluded from last report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Sun Feb 11 at 0757, this RHC is unusually still on;
S9/+20 vs line noise level of S9+30 but undermodulated and have
trouble recognizing language but probably English. 0800 into weekly
Esperanto as I do recognize theme and a few words. Uncopied this time,
but they always announce 6100 as the 08 hours frequency, where it was
for longtime but 6100 totally off the air for months now. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. And now there is also QRDRM! noise from
6000-6005-6010, requiring LSB tuning of 6000 to hear anything at all.
RHC should really be on 6100 for this, even for half an hour per week,
but that would make too much sense and be too much trouble. Esperanto
is lucky to be on *any* RHC at this hour. See FRANCE (Glenn Hauser,

** FRANCE. 6000-6005-6010, Feb 11 at 0800 as I am trying to monitor
RHC Esperanto on 6000, QRDRM noise ACI to it; see CUBA. Another test
from TDF, which lately had been on +6195+ at 0730-0800 but not now.
Unknown whether 6195 abandoned or just QSYed at 0800. TDF DRM at
0800-0900 on 6005 is already in EiBi and drmrx.org but not Aoki. HFCC
shows 100 kW at 350 degrees from ISS, i.e. into N Atlantic, Arctic
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Feb 11 at 0302, rock music, S9/+10. The
R75 NB really helps, not the NR. Off by 0410 recheck. These say it`s
WTF Radio Worldwide, off at 0316 or 0317*
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935 AM, Feb 11 at 0411, pirate music; QRM from
Spanish 2-way ``pesky`` about 6933.70 USB. These say it`s Trance Radio
on 6934.967:

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17 = virtual 17, K17JN-D, Enid`s only local TV signal
but certainly no local origination! Feb 11 at 0405 UT in a DTV
bandscan on the STB I encounter a `new` one labeled 30-9, Radio 74
`Audio only` but really leading to RF-17, while the other virtual 17s
no longer include Radio 74 audio - why in the world change it to
``30-9``? All the lower virtual 30s trace to RF 29 KTUZ Shawnee/OKC.
So it`s time for another survey of what`s really on K17JN-D, circa
0430 UT Feb 11. I suppose some of these might differ depending on time
of day?? But first, current info copied from rabbitears.info, quite
out of date:

Display Physical
Channel Channel Call Sign Network/Programming
17-1 17.1 K17JN-D 3ABN
17-2 17.2 QuoVida Amazing Facts TV
17-3 17.3 SmrtLfS Hope Channel
17-4 17.4 HopeCh1 LLBN
17-5 17.5 AmFacts 3ABN Music Radio
17-6 17.6 LLBN-EN Radio 74
17-7 17.7 3ABN-RL [Blank]

Here`s what I get: all display = virtual 17 except for 30-9!

everything but an on-air station list! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 11 at 0252 UT:
801, 855-2, 1044. The beat on 855 is 2.4 Hz, likely two from Spain;
mwoffsets shows 7 RNE outlets each on a slightly different frequency.
I see a couple 2.2 Hz apart. Plus two more in the master list. 801 is
unusual, but a het on 800 KQCV OK. There are a bunch of medium-powers
in Spain, 10/25 kW. For 100+ kW, only Iran and Ethiopia, unlikely.
1044 also likely Spain. Considerable local line noise level only these
could overcome even as JBA carriers; otherwise surely would have found
more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
