** CHINA. 13690, May 18 at 2219, algo music and talk, S9/+10 with
flutter. Could it be NZ? Not until much later. Per EiBi it`s CRI in
Spanish to S Europe at 21-23, also Mandarin at 20-21 from site s -
which means Shijiazhuang 723 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 28228 CW, May 18 at 2206, EEEEEEE DE ZL3TEN/B plus a
longer message not copied, the OBOB = only beacon audible on band. A
bit of USB further up, Spanish on 28340. The W.G.B. 10M Beacon List:
``28228 ZL3TEN - Rolleston, Christchurch NZL RE66ej - #0 (09 Jan 2024)
Note: ID + grid + eee``. QRZ.com:
``If you are hearing our beacon we would like to know. ZL3TEN has been
on air for 14 years 28.228 MHz. [power??] The Christchurch VHF DX
Group consists of a small team of enthusiastic VHFers wishing to
promote the world above 10 meters. We have just upgraded antenna to a
half wave, which is mounted much higher so you may get a better
signal. 73 Ross ZL3ADT ZL3RJ`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 11688 & 11981 approx., May 18 at 2222 fast and loud
RTTY, both reportedly NAU Isabela. Had not heard both simultaneously
so thought maybe single transmitter, one or the other. INTRUDERS
discouraging any legitimate AM broadcasters near either (Glenn Hauser,

** SPAIN. 17855, Sat May 18 at 2200, REE continues in Spanish, not
English. Someone recently said English was on M/W/F/Sat. I had not
been checking on Sats and their online program sked did not show
English at 0000 local double-daylight-time on Sundays, but there`s
nothing like making a firm dis/confirmation by monitoring. While I`m
at it, 17855 is VG direct, 15520 good, 17715 poor, and 15390 is
*still* missing, no beam south into Africa. Something`s nonfunxional
at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Sat May 18 at 2200, no signal direct from VOT
English for us, nor at 2221, while simulEnglish from Romania 11800
manages to be JBA, tho always weaker than VOT. To be sure, at 2230
checking UTwente, no signal on 11785, nor on possible overrun 9875.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. I give the exact frequency
since when it has been on recently it`s always +9 Hz (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2243 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday May 18 from a few sex before 0400 on WTWW, 5085, VG direct
due west. I`m still not certain of any direxional lobes from their
rhombic antenna. ID just before WOR claimed 100 kW on 9475 & 5085.

Also confirmed Saturday May 18 at 1453 the 1430 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, 6160.001, S6/S7 JBA into UTwente rather than usual solid
signal; propagation?

``WOR DX program on 6160 kHz today the 18th May 2024 via SW Gold Radio
in Germany at 14:40 UTC+ Reception report from Finland via Kiwi sdr in
Tampere owned by the local dxers -- using horizontal Loop antenna for
80m. Nice reception SINPO 44444 -- S7+ on an average. Just good - it´d
be great to receive your QSL as a verification - many thanks in
advance. I put some sound clips for you as testimony. [eight 1 or 2 MB
wav files] 73, Kari Kallio Lahti Finland EU``

Sorry, I had to disappoint him as I don`t have a QSL, leaving that to
stations carrying the program.

Confirmed at 1733 on 6160 with S9 + 15 dB and 3975 with S7 via SWR on
Upper Bavarian Kiwi. Fine audio.
Mini-Dick antenna at UTwente still deaf. Background noise about S7.
