** CANADA. 15034 USB, March 10 at 0053, Trenton Military is still on
and receiving reports; EiBi shows 1100-2400, with 6754 USB at
2310-1100; but is there only one transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. JBA carriers with FE Doppler flutter in OOB ranges + 18 & 21
MHz bands, March 10 at 0052: 14980, 15920, 18900, 21530. Stronger
flutterers with some Chinese modulation: 18970 S3/S6, 21490 S2/S4, and
21800 which cut off after 0100* timesignal. Then I recheck the others
and they`re all gone too. No doubt jammers against Sound of Hope or
something. Quite a few other inband signals of similar quality (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, March 10 at 0048, music and RHC IDs in Spanish, S6/S9.
11760 is off, but 15230 is on at S3/S4 seems same but
suppressed/distorted = suptorted modulation. Nowhere else found until
at 0111, 6000 S9+20/30 but JBM; and deadair or maybe JBM on 6180,
S9+20, presumably failing to relay China. And 5025 Rebelde is AWOL at
0108. Some things always wrong at RHC, RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 15140, March 10 at 1932 check, RHC English, S7 into Maryland
SDR, thus confirming that as a Running Dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Cuba
has advanced to EDT on the same date as their detested escapees in
Miami; so much if not all RHC programming, transmissions a real UT
hour earlier, to the extent that there be any ``schedule``. 11760 not
on, and one never knows whether 15140 will be. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 11734.80, March 10 at 0105, something S4/S7 but JBM;
first guess would be Korea North, but not sked until 0300. Nothing at
this time in Aoki, but EiBi shows Akashvani in Tibetan and ChiCom
jamming. Bad mod and inaccuracy favor INDIA. Only one signal; maybe
jammers correctly figured that was unnecessary. VU2JOS confirms
``11735`` is the current AIR Tibetan frequency, from Delhi (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 245 MCW kHz, March 10 at 0724 UT, ND beacon struggling
against OG&E noise level, something new/unusual. Call maybe FU, but
can`t be sure. The closest match in RNA list is: FS, 100 or 300 watts
`Rokky`, Sioux Falls, SD. I logged once before, Sept 6, 2022 at 0642
UT when it was listed as 400 watts, as still per dxinfocentre.com.
Another 245 possibility now would be HU, Terre Haute IN (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 4875 USB, March 10 at 0109, Airforce MARS type net with NCS
asking about relays. Net designator: 4TX1 - does that refer to Texas?
Sounds familiar; yes, my previous log from 2021y: ``UNIDENTIFIED.
4875-USB, Oct 10 at 0046, MARS net designator 4IX7, and some
Airforce-type calls like AFZ4W#`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2233 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday March 10
at 0100, S9/+10 direct on WRMI 9955 with Cuban pulse jamming audible
underneath. From next week: 0000 UT Sunday.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 10 at 0514 about 3 minutes into so
started circa 0511 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+15/20. The Houston
hamsat net playback from March 5 did not start until 0400 UT, an hour
later than nominal 9 pm CST. From next week: WOR at nominal 0315v

Not confirmed Sunday March 10 at 1030 on WRMI 9955: I happen to awaken
just then and hear instead TOMBS before and after 1030 //5890 WWCR.
WOR should have earlied from 1130 to 1030 UT to stay at 6:30 am ET --
but closer inspexion of the skedgrid shows System B is now on Internet
only until 1100.

If you have WRMI skedgrid bookmarked, it still goes to the old B23
one. The new ``A24`` one, jumping that gun, restoring Xmtr 2 and
Tuesday columns, is at a different google spreadsheet link you need to
reach from here: https://www.wrmi.net/index.php/programming/

** U S A. 960, March 10 at 0119 UT, during a TA 9/kHz -1 bandscan, I
notice no slop from local KGWA Enid upon 953 or 962 kHz, is it off?
No, it`s on but dead air. Its 100.9 translator tail wagging the 960
dog is also silent. Immediately I deploy my altazimuth wrist-mounted
DX-398 to null what`s left of KGWA. There are several weak stations,
but one is slightly more dominant. KGWA blasts back on at 0130 with
adstring and weather, 0133 back to dead air. So I resume listening
intently trying to pull some IDable info. It`s basketball with a team
named Tigers, low score so far, 11-11; mentioned Kansas?, and at two
different times worldunion.com? in ad. Must not be that as it`s
something in Shenzhen, China, and the website is nothing but a
placeholder. 0200 UT, KGWA blasts on again with legal ID as ``Talk
100.9``, AM 960 an afterthought, and Townhall News until 0206 legal ID
again, twice, 0206.6 fraxion of a word from whatever far-right
extremist network talk program is supposed to be on, and back to DA.
THN not among the nets listed for KGWA in NRC AM Log.

Among other 960s I`ve heard before during KGWA`s `Fox-hole` at local
midnight a few years ago are KGKL San Angelo TX, and KNEB Scottsbluff
NE, but searching on those does not find any Tiger games now, or ever.
It`s far too common a team name. A better possibility is KZIM Cape
Girardeau MO. Its website is inconclusive, but at 0238 UT the stream
is carring a Mizzou Tigers vs LSU game, so that`s it! KZIM is also at
a more favorable angle than the others to take advantage of KGWA`s
null. KGWA has been on an STA of 250/250 U1 which expires March 19
unless renewed again; otherwise 1000/1000 U3. Maybe that help such DX
a little. It was reading only S9+10/20 from a few miles away, or 1.61
times as many km. KZIM, 500 watts night, has a pretty good ``butterfly
wing`` lobe thisaway; notch to the NW so not protecting KGWA at all
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, March 10 at 0118:
855-2 and 1098 are the onlies I can outmake, surely Spains and UK
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5990-5995-6000, March 10 at 0718 UT, noise blob but does
not sound like DRM. Ordinarily would hear at least remnant of MALI
5995 AM; out of order? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2000 UT March 10
