Hauser
** CANADA. 284-MCW kHz, Nov 23 at 0719 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from
The Pas, Manitoba. Evidently the name is not Anglo-French;
The Canadian Encyclopedia says: ``The origin of the name is uncertain,
but it may be the Cree word W'passkwayaw, meaning “wooded narrows” (in
the river) ... The Pas Band (now the Opaskwayak Cree Nation)
surrendered the townsite in 1906 and moved to reserve lands on the
north bank of the Saskatchewan River. Jun 11, 2019``. Well, cutting it
to three letters is a whew goodthing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Nov 23 at 0311, quick check of Bonaire SDR finds
usual good signal of gospel huxter in Spanish from anonymous mystery
missionary station -- AMMS? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9535, Nov 22 at 2327, RHC JBA under multiple
collision, Commies vs Commies: Aoki/NDXC shows CNR1 jamming, RFA
Tibetan via Kuwait; and also CRI English via Kunming. In fact seems to
be an echo on the Chinese from more than one site. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6145, Nov 23 at 0312, no RHC English signal, at
Bonaire remote, while 9700 is JBA, 6000 S8. To Missouri SDR, 9700 is
VG S9+10, no 6145, and 6000 is S9+30 but JBM distorted --- must be
`DXers Unlimited` minus Arnie as his sub talks about propagation.

Another check at 0525: 9700 is on over CCI which would be Turkey; 6100
and 6060 are absent; 6000 suptorted; 6145 in Romanian which must be
RRI, perhaps explaining why RHC evacuated tho I had not noticed this
hour collision before. By 0608, 6100 is finally on, VG S9+30/40, so
starting at 0600? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 23 at 2111, RHC in French also reactivated and //
synchronized 15140 distorted; 13680 now in Portuguese poor at S8-S9.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 15540, 15530, 11970, Nov 23 from 1800, no signals from
anything on R. Kuwait frequencies. Pedro Sedano, Spain, had recorded
the 0800 UT sign-off announcement on 15530 saying that was on 11970
and English would resume at 1800-2100 on 15540 for Europe and North
America --- altho morning English recently resumed replacing Arabic,
still no evening English, unless on and not propagating, but I doubt
that, rather a very old recorded outdated announcement. But perhaps
there be hope. That transmission presumably still exist at least on FM
& AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11610, Nov 23 at 2145, MWV in correct language,
Chinese, always VG >> 4.000 MHz higher, 15610 WEWN English; other MWV
frequency 9765 in correct Portuguese altho the final praise song
sounds Spanish until 2157 dead air with no closure (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 6185-, Nov 22 at 2319, XEPPM is S9, as always
undermodulated, but now also with CCI, Chinese? No, per Aoki/NDXC, CRI
in Mongolian this hour via Xianyang 59 site. Mexico`s last SW station
don`t get no respect, as Ivo Ivanov also notes:

``Upcoming frequency change of NHK World Radio Japan via MBR
Moosbrunn, Austria, ex-6155 from Nov 30:
0430-0500 NF 6185*MOS 300 kW / non-dir to WeEu English Mon-Fri
0500-0530 NF 6185*MOS 300 kW / non-dir to WeEu English Sat/Sun
0400-0430 on 6185*MOS 300 kW / 115 deg to N/ME Turkish Daily AWR
*bad news for 6185 MEX 001 kW / non-dir to CeAm Spanish Daily XEPPM
Radio Educacion!``

Per Aoki/NDXC other 6185 obstacles: China Huayi from 0915, VOK from
1000, and Vatican in Chinese until 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 23 at 0605, no signal from VON (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.9-AM, Nov 22 at 2312, JBA music at S6 = QRN
level. Insane Radio as reported here much better:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74716.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 274-MCW kHz, Nov 23 at 0718 UT, ND beacon RG, which is 25
watts from Red WinG, Minnesota, a.k.a. Shoe City; and not to be
confused with our RG on 350 in OKC. I was tuned to 272-USB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: missed checking UT
Mon Nov 23 at 0030 on WRMI 7730; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, G S9+10 at UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, S8-S9 at UTwente;
also on 5800, S9+25 into Pardinho, Brasil SDR; also almost
synchronized on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0400 on Area 51 webcast, after a
Miller Beer commercial(?); but on WBCQ 6159.9 direct at 0427, JBA vs
HNL = high noise level.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10/20/30
direct, as usual right after 2+ minutes of music fill from R. Prague
relay, no ID break. No pulse jamming? Only audible during some RMI
fades; still at good level toward end of semi-hour. You never know
whether this transmission will be VG or JBA.

Also confirmed Mon Nov 23 from 1901 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria,
recorded via UTwente and checked later: *1857.5 carrier on quieting
but still with annoying ACI splash continuing during WOR; almost 1900
IRRS sign-on with Milano PO Box and phone, 3 quick FSN headlines and
then WOR: spotchecked intact for next 13 minutes at least. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0200 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?] NEW
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, Nov 22 at 2314, Brother HyStairical is VP, only S6-S7,
hard to believe it`s WRMI on NW beam which normally blasts in here.
It`s as weak or even weaker than never-strong 5950 to WNW. Can`t be
propagation, since 5800 WRMI is VG S9+25/30 with SMTV despite aimed
SSE from FL. 5850 must be temporarily QRP, and is back up to full
strength checked a few hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490.1v), UT Tue Nov 24 from 0000, WBCQ webcast cuts off
some wacko conspiracy talk for 50% of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`,
replay from 25 hours ago when it all aired; starting with a scrotum
song, but we have been warned. Also plugs his TG special UT Fri Nov 27
on 6160v & 7490v. I often catch this semi-repeat due to a scheduling
conflict the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6906, Nov 23 at 0311, quick check of Bonaire SDR finds
still no trace of an ROCV signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0029 UT November 24

Hauser
** ALASKA [non]. 13670, Sun Nov 22 at 1840, clear speech by YL in
Russian about Yesus, i.e. KNLS via its other station MWV MADAGASCAR;
tnx to tip from Richard Langley. This hour is supposed to be `African
Pathways Radio` in English. RL has previously heard them running KNLS
in English. Now it`s not only the wrong ``station`` but wrong
language. It`s almost as if they are randomly grabbing program files
to put on the transmitter. 1847 indoctrinated kids singing `Jesus
Loves Me`.

Transmission break before 1900, but 13670 back on by 1902, again in
Russian! Instead of Arabic scheduled now. Also S7-S9 direct. 1927 KNLS
ID. Axually this seems to be a transmitter mixup. The other one is
scheduled in Russian at 18-19 on 9880, 19-20 on 9845. What`s on them
now?

Well, at 1940, 9845 via UTwente is playing ``Light My Fire``, in
English, hardly a gospel song, extended version. 1946 segué to another
hard rock song with screamer, maybe Janis Joplin? I`m no
rockficionado. 1951 another familiar hard rock song to 1955*, never
any announcements, so can`t tell what language service this was
supposed to be --- but hardly the fare to be expected out of World
Christian Broadcasting, despite its relatively diverse format on KNLS
& MWV. Could it be that they have rented out one transmitter to
something else, and consolidated their own programming on the other
one, resulting in these language mixups at Mahajanga?

13710, after 9845 goes off, I retune UTwente to the next scheduled
frequency for Arabic at 2000, and its carrier pops on at *1955.8,
S9+20; 2000 ME music starts, and Radio Feda ID mentioning Mauritania,
and so really in MWV Arabic.

11965, checked at 2001, Arabic song, and announcements by same M&W but
no mention of Feda and definitely not // 13710 --- two separate Arabic
programs at once. Instead of scheduled English. Later does mention
Feda in passing. 2015 with times in Greenwich and Qahira. WHAT is
going on here?? All of these with VG signals into UTwente.

BTW, I misspoke on WOR 2061, about previous MWV anomalies, sometimes
interchanging Chinese hour with Arabic, not ``African`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 22 at 0720, only RHC English frequency still on,
S9+20 but suptorted as Arnie is speaking, Breakthru? 6000, 6145 are
off, 6060 has not activated yet, and 9700 last night is gone tonight.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Sunday Nov 22 at 1442, RHC has managed to get back on
new scheduled frequency, after misrunning 6950 both morning and
evening yesterday, replacement for 7350. Amid `En Contacto` with Marta
Rios, and then Prof. Arnaldo Coro Antich himself. Listened to a bit
more of it on 13740 & 13700, without spurs today. Arnie is almost
incomprehensible, babbling lickety-split --- you know, this almost
sounds like he`s artificially sped up.

Somewhere I have a cassette recorder with that feature, variable speed
playback, so you can compress speech and listen to something in less
time than originally, yet without raising the pitch as would happen by
simply playing a reel tape faster. Is he really doing that in order
to cram more content into limited time available? Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 22 at 1515, CRI Plus relay is S9+40, sup-torted
and hummy. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420, November 22 at 0722, great Greek Orthodox
chanting since it`s Sunday morning, violating separation of church and
state; meanwhile:

9645, Sun Nov 22 at 0723, Slavic chanting and singing at S5-S8, must
be Vatican Radio, i.e. Ukrainian liturgy, from SMG, 0705-0800 Sundays
only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. See ALASKA [non]!

** U S A. 383-MCW kHz, Nov 22 at 0729 UT, ND beacon CNP, 25 watts from
Chappell, Nebraska. Axually could not copy third letter due to fade,
but has to be this.

400-MCW kHz, Nov 22 at 0728 UT, ND beacon AHQ, which is 25 watts from
Wahoo, Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday November 22 at 0416 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 3 minutes
into so started slightly early circa 0413; VG by local-range pickup at
Warrenton MO SDR, with some storm crashes. Next:

** U S A. 7550-7590, Nov 22 at 0726, via WRMI 7570, TOMBS always bombs
in here aimed right at us, but unusual to be splattering so out to
plus/minus 20 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6000, Nov 22 at 0719, RHC is off by now, but there is a
JBA signal, possibly French? Aoki/NDXC shows these could be on at this
hour: R. Guaíba, Brasil, which has been gone for years; AIR Leh,
Ladakh, India, which is still active on night frequency 4760 but this
is at midday; Echo of Hope, Korea S, and/or NK jamming --- if 6000 be
its jumparound frequency this week; not much of a choice, but Ron
Howard confirmed VOH on 6000 as of Nov 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BOLIVIA. 5952.50, Nov 21 at 2320, JBA carrier vs pointless Cuban
pulse jamming, no doubt Radio Pio XII, Siglo XX on its signature split
frequency, also vs 5950 WRMI; Ralphus Perry thinx it`s active only on
Saturday nights. Still JBA carrier via indoor longwire due to thunder
at 0108 UT Sunday Nov 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7325, Nov 21 at 2326, SE Asian language song and dramatic
narration with extremely exaggerated dixion, S8-S9. Aoki/NDXC shows
it`s CRI in Cantonese via Kunming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6950, Nov 21 at 2301, RHC Spanish is here again like it was
for the morning broadcast, mispunched instead of missing 9650 probably
from *2200v. S9+25/30 and distorted with some wild jazz --- or is that
from the pirate jamming on the same frequency?? See NORTH AMERICA. By
2328 RHC is in the clear, and at 0103 Nov 22, when it`s the OSOB, no
pirates around, tuning with indoor longwire due to thunder (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Nov 22 at 0106 & 0324 chex, RHC English is back here
after switch to 9700 for the first time last night. Changed their
mind? Or weekend sloppyrator didn`t get the QSY message? There is a
JBA carrier on 9700 at 0106 which would be RFA Kuwait in Uighur this
hour only, and/or ChiCom jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-LSB, Nov 21 at 2301, R. Habana Cuba is again
like this morning on 6950, a big mistake instead of 9650 by the
incompetent lysdexic sloppyrator --- but with heavy QRM from a pirate
which appears to be deliberately jamming it on LSB only --- about time
RHC got jammed! By 2303 the pirate music has switched to SSTV beepery,
2304 a few clock chimes and back to music, hard-rock guitar and vocal,
mostly overriding RHC also when tuned in AM mode, thanks to RHC
carrier.

Eric Fetters-Walp replies at 0017 on the WOR iogroup: ``Yes, indeed,
that was the pirate known as Damn Skippy, famous for sending many SSTV
images during his broadcasts. Both he and RHC were audible even in AM
mode from here near Seattle.`` Many more reports here with SSTV
images:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74626.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6927-USB, Nov 21 at 2307, rock music peaks S8-S9;
2308 talk mentions ``for de moon[?], wishing a good weekend for all,
91.5? FM, quite low power tonight, outboard engine not on`` and
something about the White House, 2310 off. Many reports here of ``Take
Back the White House Radio``, altho one also mentions Zekey:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74625.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-USB, Nov 21 at 2311, soft almost `space` music,
at S9+5/25, still at 2328. Many reports here as Mix Radio
International, as early as 1927, as late as 0253!:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74604.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sun Nov 22 at 0100-0200, I listen to the
entire `Encore` on WRMI, great classical music and great signal except
for a bit of selective fading distortion to remind us that SW is a
dynamic medium --- same edition as in 21/11 Playlist that I heard part
of last night on a surprise prepeat at 0300 UT Sat on 5800 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
November 21 at 2032 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, about 1 minute
in so started almost on-time of 2030. This does not necessarily mean
the repeat will be at 0415, as there are plenty of variable-length
hamshows in between. Local quality reception via nearby remote at
Warrenton MO, but a few storm crashes.

Also confirmed Sat Nov 21 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VP S9-S5 direct.
Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. 6860-AM, Nov 21 at 2313, S9+5/10 open carrier, often

bursting into axion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Saturday, November 21 2020

Hauser
** CHINA [and non]. 7545, Nov 21 at 1353, two Chinese stations mixing
at almost same level, i.e. CNR1 jamming and VOA Mandarin via
PHILIPPINES at 1300-1500. The ChiCom obviously have no shame, no sense
of fairness, as USA allows CRI in unimpeded via CUBA on SW and even on
domestic AM/FM stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 21 at 1523, CRI English relay at S9+30 but
undermodulated and hummy. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba but
USA would never dream of jamming it, unlike vice versa (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Nov 21 at 0714, RHC English is still on here at S6-S9,
better than // 6000; so supposed to run until 0800? But Ivo Ivanov
says it cut off at 0735* and 6000 at 0710*[?]. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

BTW, I missed it, but several others caught RHC on 6950 around 1400
Nov 21, which looks like a keypad punchup error by sloppyrator for new
9650 at 1200-1600, which was not to be heard. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** PRIDNESTROVYE. 11530, Nov 21 at 1527, Dengê Welat at S5-S8 in
presumed Kurdish with long/short path echo. Annoying as it may be, a
sign of improving propagation when a signal reach us both ways.
Assuming this is not the Turkish jammer, distance from Grigoriopol`,
Moldova to Enid is 5805 statute miles short, so long path 24900 minus
5805 = 19185. Difference between 19185 and 5805 is 13380 miles. At
lightspeed of 186 kmiles/second, the echo delay computes to 0.072
second, or about one fourteenth of a second. Sounds about right (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 404-MCW kHz, Nov 21 at 0725, ND beacon XCR, which is 25
watts from Little Falls - Camp Ripley, Minnesota, between St. Cloud
and Bemidji in central MN. I was tuned to 402-USB. New log here (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21220-USB, Nov 21 at 1918, KA2ABA in western New York,
Steve, calling CQ after a contact with California. DXMAP shows
sporadic E MUF over central USA up to 25 MHz, but that may have been
double hop. 1919 contacts WC6H in Valley Springs, also audible here
circa midpoint. OSOB until algo on 21300-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18158-USB, Nov 21 at 1922, N4UT calling for check-ins before
a 1930 net, but what? Calls from all over US, widely variable
strengths. Retry 1947 finally names it, ``Ole Miss 17 meter net``. 26
stations are on the work-list, he will run thru so each may call
another. More at omiss.net. N4UT admits he is in Virginia. Is this for
alumni, or what? Apparently nothing to do with Oxford, rather stands
for OM International Sideband Society. Does this mean YLs are
excluded? Apparently for expediting award-chasing such as WAS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 17700, Nov 21 at 1924, huge S9+20/30 signal
slightly overmod/distorted in French with heavy African accent, got to
be VOA Grimesland NC - not noticed before but in B-20 HFCC for one
hour daily at 1900-2000, 250 kW almost due east and plenty to the
west. Also a lite long-path echo which is getting close to the max
from a site short-path so close. Soon to interviewer speaking proper
French.

Is it // 15730? Seems same but far out of synch and much weaker,
chopping off at 1928*. 17700 still going past 1930 but with a program
change. Then I find 15730 back on much stronger than before, S9+20 and
now it is in synch with 17700; discussion about Burkina Faso. Yes,
15730 makes a site switch from BOTSWANA to GB at 1930, but it is

** U S A. 9955, Sat Nov 21 at 1529.5, WRMI-3 with edited classic WNYW
ID mentioning SW target countries including United Arab Republic: the
union of Syria and Egypt which lasted only 1958-1961y altho Wikipedia
elucidates: ``a sovereign state in the Middle East from 1958 to 1971.
It was initially a political union between Egypt (including the
occupied Gaza Strip) and Syria from 1958 until Syria seceded from the
union after the 1961 Syrian coup d'état  —  leaving a rump state.
Egypt continued to be known officially as the United Arab Republic
until 1971``.

At 1530, 9955 starts in Spanish, but immediately blasted away by
switch to Brother Hystairical incomprehensible rant, as TOMBS is
extended Sabbathdays only past 1500 on several other frequencies for
live disservice until 1700; yet sked is contradictory about 9955,
still showing 1500-1530 S&S as `Full Gospel Hour`, with Blalock the
Blaster, but I just missed confirming whether he was really still
Touretting before 1529. Skedgrid also shows besides the daily TOMBS
frequencies 1700-2100, 5800 also stays on Saturdays only. Confirmed at
1800 via TWR Key West KiwiSDR, *much* better than JBA 5950 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 11252-USB, Nov 21 at 1342-1345*, 2-way in
Spanish, reception good enough from both sides, but I can`t figure out
what they are talking about, and wonder if even a native speaker
could. Light QRM from VOLMET by YL on 11253-USB, which is getting a
lot more QRM from this, i.e. RAF somewhere in UK (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 4747 & 4782 approx., Nov 21 at 0236, ratchety spurblobs out
of 4765 R. Progreso, plus/minus 17-18 kHz. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6000, UT Sat Nov 21 at 0125, RHC English on here
only but no 6145, unsure of 9700 yet, if on not strong into a
portable. Anyhow starting circa 0100, not 0200.

9700, by 0205 Nov 21 on the R75 I am hearing this new RHC English
frequency with much-delayed B-20 sked going into effect, but it`s only
S3-S5, much less than 6000 which is S9 but undermodulated; and 9700
pales by comparison with the bigsig next to it from 9690 Spain.

9700, by 0333 Nov 21, this RHC has surged to S9+20, now stronger and
with more modulation than 6000. At 0452 checking 9700 at Maine SDR,
roughly equal collision, as predicted with Turkey in Turkish which was
already there for B-20 at 04-07 UT; but at UTwente, only TRT.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6060, Nov 21 at 0459, Arabic music VG into Maine, i.e. ALGERIA via
FRANCE with signature clickbeeping on defective Issoudun transmitter
but cuts off by 0500 leaving nuttin` but noise. Still no signal at
0548. RHC is supposedly reactivating 6060 in Spanish at 01-05, English
05-07, or -08? Maybe later, but if so this will be colliding at 04-05.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 9560, Nov 21 at 0334, news in English all about
COVID-9 especially concerning Japan. Includes brief snippets of
citizen comments voiced over into English, just like NHK does on TV.
This is the *Swahili* service, but still inserting part of TV news
audio in English instead of proper language. It`s also a defacto North
American service, always with a good signal from MADAGASCAR, 250 kW at
320 degrees toward E Africa but carrying on into deep North America.
Shhh, don`t tell anyone as we are not supposed to listen to Radio
Japan in English on SW! 0339 plays some jingly-music, maybe to
accompany video-only world weather info? But 0340 back into Swahili
after seeming to intro show as ``Day Now``, of course IDing as
required with English name ``NHK World`` in all languages; into songs
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.919, Nov 21 at 0240, JBA talk maybe French from
RNM always off-minus, S8-S9 vs noise level of S6-S7; WRMI closes at
0230 clearing for this which now copes only with that chirping from
5007. India is gone for good from 5010, but if WRMI-14 is weak enough,
you might hear a het from Mad. before 0230.

4980, BTW, still not hearing any JBA carrier or modulation from
WRMI-4. For a while this frequency was displayed on the skedgrid as #4
but with NO timeblox. Now I see that has been replaced by 11710, so
maybe there are plans for 11710, perhaps even with full power, but
nothing yet. 11710 has been registered in Jeff`s HFCC as 23-03 in
English & Spanish, 100 kW at 160 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed UT

** U S A. (7490.1v), UT Sat Nov 21 at 0100, WBCQ webcast as `AAAWWW`
is starting with WTO theme. First subject about drug prices,
conspiracy theory that the China-produced virus is being used as an
excuse to keep drug prices high in the US, tnx to the Rothschilds,
Bilderburgs, Illuminati --- but AHW reminds us ``don`t want to sound
like conspiracy theorists`` meanwhile going on about this thinly
veiled anti-Semitic stuff; ``the elexion ain`t over`` so plenty more
politiix in store this week. AHW wants to play some podcast he heard
but has to do it by holding his phone up to mike. Tune out. Tune back
in at 0132 to 6159.9 confirmed // via Warrenton SDR as same othervoice
is still going back on webcast, but studio quality so AHW must have
found a better way to connect. 0143 finally outroing this guest with
his name and name of program which I am not going to repeat, as he has
been making a totally bonkers conspiracy case about this cabal trying
to control us. By 0153 reading e-mails, all of whom seem to be
deep-enders in agreement. Wrapup as usual with prayer, and canned AHW
ID cuts off live AHW before he finishes in time for 0200 Hal Turner
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, UT Sat Nov 21 at 0320, WRMI S9+20/30 with operatic
duet --- certainly not another TRSW repeat as rumoured. Who would be
playing classical on WRMI but Brice Avery? Yes, it is additional run
of his `Encore` hour, temporary fill or not? Soon outro as a
bass/tenor duet from `The Pearl Fishers` by Bizet. 0352 recheck, about
to ``play out`` with Schubert`s String Quarter #13, second movement.
These are from the 21/11 Playlist, already airing. Play-out means
Brice signs off early and never says anything at the very end; instead
the music is still playing at 0359.5 when it`s chopped off for ID,
0400 dead air and about to turn off. What will occupy this
frequency-hour next week? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
