** FRANCE. 6190-6195-6200, Feb 12 at 0749, S9+35 DRM noise, so TDF
still active at 0730-0800 before QSY to 6000-6005-6010 at 0800 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Feb 12 at 2307, token English from SNR, good S9+40
direct, enough to overcome HLNL unlike 5960 Turkey. Feature is
interview about the ``migrant crisis``, with 7K already showing up
into the Canaries this year, causing the insular government to
``collapse``, calling for moving them on ASAP to roomier Peninsular
Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Sun Feb 11 at 2336, VOT not off the air during
`Letterbox`, mail after mail from India, then Italy, Belarus`, Spain.
Has to prompt to include postal address for QSL as no eQSLs. Until
2344.4, so widening further the possible showspan. He loves us, back
next week. Then song, not theme. Was no signal yet just before 2300,
but VG now, S9+30/35 into UTwente, good mod, no squeal. 2351
multi-lingual ID filler reel.

2353 s/off only for the 1330 on 13635. That`s the first English
broadcast each day and they replay it over and over. Someone should
inform the announcer/operator about all the repeats. 2354 IS, 2356
restart IS with German IDs. 2400 timesignal and s/on as one of the two
earlier real German outsendings. Many familiar segment themes, same as
in English service. Circa 2450 finally chops off, uncovering XJRTV
East Turkistan, std denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Feb 12 at 2310, JBA direct vs line noise level
ranging from S9+10 to +20 all over the LW & SW bands. VOT English VG
into UTwente S9+30/35 when measured at 2335, ``always-by-your-side``
promo and ``That`s Why` on the ``art of learning a foreign language``
voiced by, who else, the badax. Says this feature is a translation
from original Turkish; which is likely the case for most segments,
unless originally in English such as a commentary or analysis by a
Westerner. Over already at 2339, ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music,
2344 ``w-y-e-h`` again, more music. 2349 one of those yet again,
music. 2352 *again*, what crutches! and s/off of 1330 only; chopoff at
2353* before any IS, uncovering the undercurrent of the understation,
XJRTV in Chinese from the other land of genocide, imperialist
ChiCom-controled East Turkistan. Note: I am not avoiding the issue of
Israeli genocide, but no SW broadcasts from there. As usual, it`s
necessary to retune UTwente, or step back-and-forth 5 kHz to get it to
display the new exact frequency which in this case is always much
closer to .000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1590, Feb 13 at 0140 UT, rather urgent talk in Russian, not
Ukrainian. The only likely possibility is WCGO Evanston IL, which per
Wikipedia does have Russian on weekday afternoons. Via tunein.com,
reaching own website, which includes a ``1950 AM`` blunder, Radio NVC
| Радио Народная Волна Чикаго | Northbrook, IL ...
shows on into the evening tomorrow but won`t display now Feb 12 CST as
my computer is on UT: ``НОВОСТИ - СВОБОДА Tue, Feb 13 - Wed, Feb 14,
2024 7:00pm-12:00pm``. At 0146 could be a commercial in Russian;
however by 0230 the same semi-dominant signal is carrying songs in
Spanish. I find the webstream, http://ice23.securenetsystems.net/WCGO
and indeed it`s Spanish now as ``Ambiente Clásico`` as I already
logged direct some months ago. It sure would be nice to see an
accurate program/language full WCGO schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2229 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
February 11 at 2100.5 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S8/S9 into
UTwente, no CCI. Following 2057 vamp music, 2100 ID.

Also confirmed Sunday February 11 at 2256 the 2230 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.002, S8/S9 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 12 at 0043 the 0030 on WRMI 7780,
S7/S9 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 12 from 0401.3 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.93, S9/+5 into NH SDR, fortunately almost over by 0430 when
severe ACI hits from Russian on 6165: that`s NHK via Nauen, Germany at
0430-0450 only. HFCC shows that`s 125 kW at 85 degrees, so why such a
bigsig way over here?

Missed checking Mon Feb 12 at 0930 on SW Radio, Germany day frequency
6160, since I`m always ZZZ. Anyone hear it?

Also confirmed Monday February 12 from 2031.3 on SW Radio, Germany,

** VANUATU. 7260, Feb 12 at 0751, song at S8, R. Vanuatu reactivated
after missing a couple nights as Manuel Méndez also notes; and Ron
Howard found it on no known frequency Feb 11 at 0705 (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. 4750, Feb 12 at 0743, as I happen to be starting a 60mb
bandscan, rapid Morse code CODAR alfanumeric ID fires; unprepared, did
not copy it, but probably same one previously traced in this area; and
should be audible over entire swirsh-range, not just on 4750; anyway,
reconfirms time as :43 past the hours, and believed to be
icosaminutely also at :03 and :23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051.0, Feb 12 at 0745 carrier, seems to be constant,
also as het to 5050 earlier when WRMI Legends is on. Others hearing
it? A utility protest objector? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
