** CANADA. 15034 USB, March 6 at 1843, Trenton Military with a report
received from Shearwater, Shearwater. Had not run across it here nor
on night frequency 6754 USB, such as March 6 at 0729, for several
days, so wondering if gone again. May be irregular. At 2318 check, not
heard on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 6 at 2000, no signal from RHC. So much for that
English hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, March 6 at 2317, RHC only S2/S6 direct, sup/torted
talk presumed Spanish or maybe Portuguese; 13650 CRI `Portuguese`
music only is back to normal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11740-11780 approx., March 6 at 2319, RHC with wideband noise
again obviously out of the central 11760 transmitter reading S9+10/20
direct in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** EGYPT. 9440-, March 6 at 2125, no signal into UTwente from R.
Cairo. So much for that English sesquihour. Something`s always amiss
at Abis, egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Mar 6 at 2300, token English from SNR, VG direct.
Amy previews main topic: jamón ibérico, going to visit a farm with a
herd of 120 special pigs. 2302 news, including scandal for the
socialist government about a 20 megaeuro contract for COVID masks;
some other scandal; drug runners killed two guardias civiles in Cádiz;
art exhibition. 2311 the pig story I care not to hear (Glenn Hauser,

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Wed Mar 6 at 2334, VOT English, S9+35/40 into
UTwente, commentary about Russia; 2340 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo;
2346 `Sports Panorama`, weekly, badax voiced, of zero interest. 2354
s/off as if the 1330 broadcast only; 2354.5 IS; 2356 restart IS with
German IDs; 2400 s/on extraneous German, and still running past 2425
with `Sports Panorama` ending, music. 2427.6* pull plug uncovering
XJRTV, std. denunciations. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28260 CW, March 6 at 1835, JBA beacon EEE VVV KC4QLP/B
copied after several passes. WI5V list is inaccessible; not in
outdated WJ5O list. RSGB list, Not Found either! but QRZ.com:

``KC4QLP USA flag USA, ROBERT W CARTER, 387 Inghams Mills Rd, Little
Falls, NY 13365, USA --- There is a new 10 meter beacon on the air
from here at 28.260 mhz. 10 watts TPO into a Sirio Tornado High Gain
5/8 Wave Base Antenna. The beacon operates on a continuous bases. QSL
via eQSL.cc only. Tech info can be found at
http://www.kc4qlp.com/beacon.html and at
https://www.qrz.com/db/KC4QLP/B ``

Lots more info on his multiple operations:
I figured this would not be from Antarctica, where KC4 used to be the
exclusive? prefix for US bases. Now it could be anywhere CONUS not
even in the 4th call area! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2232 monitoring: confirmed UT
Wednesday March 6 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 into Maryland SDR.
From next week with DST, this shifts one real UT hour earlier to 2330
UT Tuesdays.

Not confirmed Wed Mar 6 at 1520 the secret 1500 on WRMI 9955, instead
some misc. undermodulated music, same as on webcast. Skedgrid always
showed this Thu at 1500 but was really on Wed instead of FAD, in Dec,
Jan, and most of Feb until last week.

At 1530 when RAE in French is sked, instead nothing but continuous
multilingual RAE IDs - like this slot has been for weeks, months - a
total loss! At 1600, 9955 via Maryland SDR goes to gospel huxter,
while webcast splits away to DW Africa, presumably from WRN, past 1630
but about 1637 cut to more misc. music fill; and at 1700 into NHK
Newsline. Presumably also from WRN but WRN IDs are never to be

BTW, I notified Jeff about missing Xmtr 2 and Tuesdays on the skedgrid
and says he has restored them, unknown how that could happen.

WOR 2232 confirmed Wednesday March 6 at 2030 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.001, S9/+15 into UTwente; following ADDX in German, but after
2000 there was ham news in Amerenglish.

Also confirmed Wednesday March 6 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490-, JBA direct
recognizable as me; slightly better 2227 during eclipse info, so is
correct episode. Due to imposition of DST March 10, from next week for
8 months will air one real hour earlier at 2100, further into daytime
absorption probably audible only via nearer remotes, webcast. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW [from next week: 0130]
1730 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 3975

Note: WRMI times on 9395 & 9955 shift one UT hour earlier from March
10 due to imposition of DST; while all others stay at same UT!

** YEMEN [non]. 11915, March 6 at 2320, S6/S7 of horrible noisebuzz
into UTwente, *just like* we heard until last week on 11820, and
before that on 11860, Sa`udi relay of Republic of Yemen Radio, since
the Houthis don`t allow it inside Yemen. I bet this be their new
chosen frequency, maybe running 18 hours a day, and indeed off after
2400 like 11820 had been, so what will it victimise here, per EiBi

On 11915 itself, nothing but CNR2 and RTI. 11920 nothing but one hour
a week of VORW via France! 11910, VOK and NHK, all of those on limited
skeds. At 2332 I check it into UTwente. In Sync mode if I punch in
11915 it displays 11914842.03 at S8. Rock steady while normal signals
wobble at least a little down to the hundredth of a Hz. If I step up
to 11920 and back to 11915, it then displays 11914840.44, again rock
steady. Down to 11910 and back up to 11915: 11915201.72 - apparently
the `lock` hits an exact spot within the noise bandwidth at the first
instant and stix to it!

At 0013 March 7 recheck, JBA signal on 11915 locking at UTwente but
then gone immediately. Maybe CNR2 gearing up for *0030 via as site,
which means Baoji-Sifangshan, Shaanxi, #724.

Then I see that Aoki, not EiBi already lists 11915: 1755-2257 R. Saudi
in Arabic from Riyadh, daily. Surely same transmitter but we can`t be
positive the inaudible programming be Yemenish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
