** BRAZIL. 4885, June 9 at 2300 and June 10 at 0105, NO signal of R.
Clube do Pará into Brasília SDR, contrary to one recent report it were
active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 18970, June 9 at 1502, JBA carrier, CNR1 jammer or
Sound of Hope to whom we are indebted for populating this obscure SWBC
band. BTW, The Epoch Times, related newspaper to SOH and Falun Gong,
has been hit by a scandal:

``Federal prosecutors in New York charged Weidong “Bill” Guan of
Secaucus, N.J., chief financial officer of The Epoch Times, of
steering at least $ 67 million in criminal proceeds, much from
fraudulently obtained unemployment insurance benefits, to the company,
its affiliates and himself.``

Epoch Times CFO is arrested and accused of role in $ 67M multinational
money laundering scheme


What will become of The Epoch Times with its chief financial officer
accused of money laundering?

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 15775, June 10 at 1507, S4/S5 carrier, JBM? Unusual
anything next to 15770 WRMI. EiBi shows nothing but ChiCom jamming and
Sound of Hope. Propagation very degraded with the only bigsigs the
four WWCRs, 15825, 13845, 12160, 9980. K-index at 1500 only 1.00 but
WWV reports more often than not, to levels 1, 2, or 3, geomag storms,
solar radiation storms, and radio blackouts. The 27-day Outlook issued
today shows peak A&K indices today of 35 & 6; June 11: 20 & 5; June
12: 10 & 3. Then 5 & 2 or 8 & 3 thru July 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, June 10 at 0348, ``Josiah`` on Station YHWH is
reactivated after a few months` absence, tnx to tips from Eric
Fettters-Walp in WA and Walt Salmaniw in BC. I`m tuning a northern
Utah SDR, where his thin voice is marred by storm crashes. MEGO this
anti-Christ pirate obsessed with Yahweh stuff, just as I am with
pro-Christ gospel huxters but let him play in background; still at
0428, but by 0432 he`s gone. Did not notice any themetune. Earlier had
transmitter failures and resumed, they say. EFW`s first revival report
was June 8 before 0420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday June 9 at 2200, token English from SNR, VG
S9+30/40 direct and the other three confirmable. Feature to be about
the Sorolla Museum featuring 100 objects. 2201 Justin Coe with
detailed contact info. Skips news with no explanation or apology,
right into M. Quintana interview about ``Sorolla y Cien Objetos`` -
another totally visual medium on a totally aural medium, so I suggest:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Sunday June 9 at 2203, VOT not off the air, Ms
Badax speaking, sounds more like commentary than olds this early in
hour, but pauses for ``news`` sounder. S9+35/40 into UTwente. 2218
`Letterbox` starts, host obviously looking at mail for very first
time, no preparation. Says he will be off next week for 5-6 day
holiday, sounded like Eid?? So will spend with family. Weather is hot
now, explains seasons. First from Argentina, Nestor di F------, who
says he is not getting foreign postal mail, so please eQSL? And then
another one from him with photos. His report from February was for
7240 - but the B23 HFCC shows that used only for Uighur at 03, and not
at all in A24! VOT refuses by policy to eQSL but maybe host will photo
a QSL for him and send that to him! This first one took a full 10
minutes. 2228, Konstantin Barsenkov, a regular from St. Pete, Russia;
Greece - comments on how despite hostilities some Turx like to visit
Greece. Then from India in English about listening in Urdu. Another
from India explaining what SDRs are. Second one from the first Indian.
Another from India. Finally ``my man``, Alan Holder, Isle of Wight,
UK, who impresses host with how much he knows about Turkey, but has
not been listening much lately due to chores, rainy May. Discusses
host`s motorcycle accident, urges him to avoid sheep. Got new tyres,
as Honda dealer urges Turkish ones better for its terrain than
Japanese ones. By law in Turkey, cars have to swap winter and summer
tires twice a year, a nuisance. Alan wants more content about what`s
going on in Turkey, less music and less commentary about international
affairs. Explains that the only news they can broadcast is what has
been provided in original Turkish for translation. 2251 finally
``time`s up`` but no music filler this time as he has run almost up to
end of transmission! Holder reply was at least 10 minutes too, but did
not note exactly when it started. 2252 L`box outro theme. 2253 Ms
Badax s/off as if the 1230 on 17620, and IS played only one sesquitime
before chop by 2254*, no finesse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 10 at 2159, no signal direct of VOT
English, nor by 2200 when I switch to SPAIN, q.v. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler. Recheck at 2205, now VOT is on at S9+10/20 but
insufficient vs noise level. At 2224 I tune it in via UTwente when
measured at usual offset, and S9+55/60! during `The Energy Agenda`.
2227 promo trtvotworld.com for 41 languages.

[Later I check that: at first there appear to be linx to 41 languages,
but several duplicated with different spellings or scripts, denoting
dialects? Two each of Azeri, Tatar, Turkmen, and three of Uyghur!
Furthermore, Dari & Pashto, so what is Afghan?? Bosnian, Croatian and
Serbian also get separate entries. Maybe there be only 33?]

Followed by pounding music to match the pounding signal. 2232, `That`s
Why`, Ms Badax about serpent representing medicine. 2237
``always-by-your-side`` promo, song. 2242 ``with-you-every-hour``
promo, music. 2248 ``a-b-y-s-`` again. 2252 TRTWorld promo again. 2253
s/off by Ms Badax as if the 1230 on 17620: something`s always awry at
Ankara. Then IS, 2256 pause and restart with German IDs. 2300
timesignal and s/on German with satellite info and frequencies for the
two correct German outsendings, into news, or I daresay Altrichten
until chopoff at 2303.3*. Immer etwas fehlerhaft zu Emirler (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2246 monitoring: confirmed Sunday

** U S A [and non]. 15610, June 9 at 1502, JBA carrier, at this hour
presumably ChiCom jamming and/or SOH, but reminds me about WEWN, so I
ask Glen Tapley:

``WEWN never on SW now? Hello Glen, Have not heard 15610 in a long
time, and recently not 12050 either whenever checked at random various
hours. Could you enlighten us about the prospects for WEWN ever
returning to SW in English and/or Spanish? Regards,`` Another check of
12050 at 2353 June 10: nada (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 102.3 FM, June 10 at 2028 UT, another fruitless search for
Es DX on caradio gets something other than KRMG Tulsa here: Country,
``102-3 the Bull`` - that`s KWFS-FM 100/100 kW, Wichita Falls TX.
There are zero 102.3s in KS, and no country 102.3s elsewhere in OK
