** GERMANY. 9670.00, July 8 at 0146, S9+10/20 of rock music,
presumably Channel 292 testing direxional antenna, much better than
usual direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 AM, July 8 at 0148, S9+20 of rock music, but no
match for noise level. Several reports here of Outhouse Radio in USB
after 0158, so maybe something else:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6949.8 AM, July 8 at 0150, S9+10 of music vs noise
level. These report Captain Morgan SW on 6949.7:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.565 & 27224.881 approx., July 8 at 0138, S9 open
carriers of the Enid CB pirate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 106.1, July 8 at 2024 UT, futile bandscan for Es
encounters ``106-1, The Twister, #1 for new country``, i.e. KTGX
Owasso = Tulsa mkt; unknown whether sibling to 101.9 KTST OKC. Can`t
imagine why stations think it`s cool to name themselves for an
extremely destructive force of nature. WTFDA FMDB shows a few others:
in MI, NE, NE, KS, TX, every one of them Country (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** RUSSIA [and non]. FBI agent "Carrie" -- Havana Syndrome
investigator says bar for proof was set impossibly high. Efforts
continue to investigate brain injuries suffered by U.S. officials.
This is the fourth 60 Minutes Havana Syndrome report and, for the
first time, there's evidence of who might be responsible.
{also 27-minute audiovideo; this is about microwave or acoustic

60 Minutes Overtime --- Russian role in attack on American officials?
(via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE [and non]. Checking whether USAGM relay has
been closed down, July 8 at 1724, the current frequencies in HFCC,
into Canary SDR: NO signal on 15660 Amharic, nor 5940 English; but
15460 with SNA = Shona is on and VG. After 1730, 12070 is also on in
Oromo, but 15660 is not. At 1820, no 17655 with Portuguese, but 15460
& 6045 in Shona are on. After 1830, 6180 is on in French. At 1840,
15460 and much weaker 6045 are in English, not Shona. At 1850, MW 1530
is on in French, past 1900; but there is also mostly musical CCI with
slow SAH, which per MWlist has to be either Madeira or Romania. At
1930 both 6045 and 9470 are on VG in Kinyarwanda. At 2037, nothing on
4960, 9490; JBA algo else? on 9470. At 2030, 9470 is supposed to go
from VOA French to Hausa and from Botswana to STP. At 2128 nothing on
11900, but *2129 JBA carrier, which would be VOA via Vatican relay in
Bambara. So: some scheduled STP frequencies are on, others not, but
may have been wooden/alternatives in the first place. Of course, we
cannot be sure all listed SAO frequencies are really still from there,
since there are no site IDs; and I`m not having any luck getting
reliable TDOA hits (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 8 at 2200, token English from SNR is VG
S9+40/50 direct, others not checked. Preview feature to be about
Festival de San Fermín which started on Saturday, a.k.a. Running of
the Bulls in Pamplona - which I consider to be sheer
madness/stupidity/machismo. 2201.5 news leads with French elexions
impasse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.019, Sunday July 7 at 2159, VOT IS and ID, S9+40/45
into UTwente; 2200 s/on as if the 1230 broadcast, news. 2208 earliest
start ever for `Letterbox`. Acknowledging reports from: Jayanta
Chakroborty, New Delhi; Mohammed ---, Pakistan; John Jurasek, central
Florida who does not want a QSL, just to let them know he listens, but
host wants his postal address anyway to QSL - he is the VORW guy, of
course, not mentioned. West Bengal, India; another from W Bengal;
another another; Pak guy again; Belarus; Palermo, Italy; Belgium
explains what QSL means; Jayanta C. again. 2223 Goodbye, already and
song before 2226 playing the L`Box outro/intro. Then nothing but more
songs until 2253 s/off as if the 1230 emanation, 6 notes of IS before
2354* chopoff, no finesse. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785v, July 8 at 2158 direct, zero signal from
VOT, while 11800 Romania is quite audible. 2226 check via UTwente,
still zero 11785. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Should have
checked possible alternate 9875 earlier but by 2255 `Jesus Saves` IS
into UTwente, i.e. FEBC Manila, and no KCBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2250 monitoring: WTWW 9475, Sat
July 6 at 2300: ``WoR received in lower mainland BC from WTWW started
out as nothing and ended up with a fair to good signal by 2330. Before
long, it will be a good signal for the entire 30 minutes -- possibly
by 1 August. Tony Pavick, Hope BC``

first and switch to 6, it`s the one running a few words behind. Tony
Pavick suggests ``they quite possibly use two separate PCs for the
programme feeds, just as Channel 292 does. `` Next:

** U S A. 5050, July 8 at 0155, no signal from WRMI Legends, but yes
on 9455, announcing wrmilegends.com for requests. It seems that
wtww.us website still exists under control of Ted Randall, but with
outdated info and leading to that site, claiming a ``new schedule`` of
01-04 on 5050, 04-06 on 9455 -- NOT!

The WRMI skedgrid does show those two blox for Legends, but in
addition: 21-22 Tue-Fri 9395, and 00-01 Mon 9455.

AFAIK, the real WTWW does not have a website or streaming. Should be
able to get WTWW.something other than .us.

While on the WRMI skedgrid I notice some additional entries for `On
the Media` from WNYC: Mon 02-03 9395, Mon 20-21 15770, Mon 21-22 9395,
Tue 02-03 9395, Wed 21-22 9955, Thu 21-22 15770 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 91.5, July 8 at 2021 UT into caradio, KSNS Medicine Lodge KS
is back on with gospel music after missing yesterday (Glenn Hauser,

** VANUATU [and non]. 9960, July 8 at 0620, RV music S6/S7 and in the
clear, no WRMI extension on 9955 as was the case last week, not just
weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6931.1 AM, July 8 at 0258 music into NH remote. Nothing
reported in HFU as NAm pirate. Or could it be this, frequency match?:
``SPAIN, 6931.1, Indy Radio, Seville, 1957-2011, 06-07, rock and pop
songs in Spanish. 25322`` -- Manuel Méndez, Spain. More:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27335 AM, July 8 at 2205, some CBer relaying music bits,
sounds like tuning around a dial; so so do I on FM in case can hit
upon a match, but none. Not strong so maybe not local, as our Enidite
is not on 27185/27225v right now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
