** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Apr 13 at 2145 tune-in early for
LRA36, but it`s already running, VP into only BsAs remote working,
Spanish but no match for S7 noise level. 2149 switch to Brasília SDR
where it`s *much* better tho only S3/S6 with music, 2155 ID, 2214 &
2216 IDs in passing. Reduced carrier barely perceptible by tuning
lower in USB. By 2235 faded down to only S2/S3, barely readable. 2340
next check is gone, just splash from 15480 China. So I wonder what
time starting now, and still only on Saturday? (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** GERMANY. 6070, Sat Apr 13 after 1900, `From the Isle of Music`
confirmed on its new schedule, monthly on second Saturday via Channel
292, S9+5/10 into UTwente. Monthly on third Sat will be `Uncle Bill`s
Melting Pot` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, April 13 at 0618, ORTM is on for a change, African song
with strumming, S9+15/25 direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6184.97 approx., April 13 at 0620, this time XEPPM air
really is dead on S9/+30 signal. Something`s malo en México (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Apr 13 at 2155, VOT already on with long-form
IS, VG S9+45 into UTwente; 2156 pause and restart short IS with
English IDs. 2200 accurate timesignal but instead of s/on, plays the
2-minute multi-lingual ID filler reel! 2202 news in English for this
date. 2212 `The Energy Agenda`, natural gas reserves in eastern
Mediterranean around Cyprus worth a sesquiterabuck. 2217 song. 2224
`Turkey`s Geomarked [sic] Products` - baklava. 2227 music. 2231
another song. 2235 another2 song. 2238 another3 song. 2242 another4
song. 2246 another5 song. 2250 another6 song. 2253 s/off of the 1230
on 17620, the badax` voice for the first time this hour. 2254 IS.
2254.4* chopoff, no finesse. A semihour of music fill might also
qualify as something`s awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2238 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday April 13 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/25 direct.

Don`t you believe also on 7730, as misdisplayed for months/years on
the WRMI skedgrid. 7730 is JBA but not //. Altho now ``effective March
10, 2024``, the System F - redsked shows at 01-03 everything on both
frequencies. Yet the frequency sked atop shows System L on 7730 during
those hours. Yet the System L yellowsked itself shows 5950 only! This
error affects many other programs and programmmes, such as Encore,
RNEI, RFPI, R. Carpathia, CQ Calling, The Mighty KBC, Rosie`s Retro

WOR 2238 also confirmed UT Saturday April 13 at 0400 on WTWW 5085, VG
into NH remote. I`m pleased with how reliably and accurately Bob
Biermann has been playing WOR each week, and tnx to George McClintock
for availablizing the time and keeping the transmitter running.

Germany, 6160.001, S9+5 into UTwente
