** CANADA. 300 kHz MCW, Feb 14 at 0746, dash and YIV, 500-watt NDB at
Island Lake, Manitoba, <54N/<95W, JBA vs the still hi local noise

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [non?]. 4251 kHz, Feb 14 at 0732, CW over &
over, nothing but NJDM. Leading up to this log, starting with unID on
odxa iog:

``I copied NJDM being sent repeatedly in morse code on 4251 khz on
2/11/2024 at 0245 utc. Does anyone know where this station is? The
signal was strong and clear into Springfield Ma. USA Jim Bee``

``Good strong signal UTC 0255 Feb 14 Grand Rapids MI. I'm also
clueless as to what it is for. 73 Jack NY8D Amelar``

``Also easy copy on my little Tecsun in the living room on its
built-in whip! Mayne Island, BC. Steve VE7SL McDonald`` at 0304 Feb

Don Moman, Feb 14: ``it was loud in Alberta at 0400 but went off
before recheck at 0420``

``N+3 letters implies a US Navy vessel - however I`ve searched a
number of such callsign lists and not found it; new one? 73, Glenn

``USS Jason Dunham DDG-109 (helis.com)

David Ross``

Illustrated and indicating it is not new. But why these transmissions,
and where be it parked? I notice that in this and many other cases,
the callsigns try to match letters in the ship`s name. Broad search on
call leads to lots of irrelevant New Jersey hits (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY. 5960.016, Feb 14 at 2343 tune-in via UTwente, VOT S9+45 in
music. Missed most of the broadcast and all of simulSpain while
dealing with an internet outage. Nothing but more music till 2354

uncovering XJRTV in Chinese, only S9/+5, std genocidal denunciations

** U S A. (101.5), Wed Feb 14 from 0700 UT, webcast of KSFR Santa Fe
NM, one of my favorite stations, starts `The Third Floor`, vocal,
choral music, sacred and secular, I enjoy but too late. KSFR info:

``Wednesdays Midnight-2:00 am [MST] Bill Cromwell is your host and
listening companion for two hours of Vocal and Choral Classical
Repertoire each week on The Third Floor Presents. Enjoy motets,
masses, cantatas, choruses, lieder, arias, songs, and more from around
the world and across the centuries. For more The Third Floor Presents,

That also leads to audibility on demand; out of Fort Loudon, PA:


Provenance of title remains a mystery. I previously reported about
this show when it was on KUCO, which did not last long: see under

A few minutes into it this week on KSFR stream, jarringly interrupted
by a few seconds of African? drumming, automation screwup? It also
keeps cutting short the closing announcement of the preceding show
`Map Is Not Territory`. I have notified The Invisible Man, Mark
Kuechle about this. I guess he is voice-tracking, not really `live`
there, altho I think he is really at KSFR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
