Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, UT Tue Jan 21 at 0100, RAE Spanish opening
via WRMI, but in less than a minute switches to hymns in English which
fill the rest of the hour; normally those fill only the final 5
minutes as the RAE hour is that much shorter. I suspect today`s RAE
file was corrupted, thus causing the default. I notified WRMI people
about this by 0110 but evidently nothing could be done to bring RAE
back upon such short notice. It`s critical to be sure a complete file
be uploaded to the proper System with the proper exact file name, to
succeed onto the air. Last Monday/UT Tuesday RAE Spanish also failed
to appear with hymns such as `Onward Christian Soldiers` instead
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 392 kHz, Jan 21 at 0734 UT, ND beacon ML and
dash, which is 500 watts from La Malbaie - Charlevoix, Quebec, and not
to be confused with the listed 25-watt ML on 392 from Monroe,
Louisiana; and mixing with FMZ, which is 25 watts from Fairmont -
Beklof, Nebraska. Similar pitches but slightly different periods
helping to unravel them. Note that Beklof spelt backwards is Folkeb
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 530-CLSB, Jan 21 at 0726 UT, Asian language with
much more modulation on LSB than USB, i.e. CHLO Brampton Ont., 250
watts night, ethnic. AM 530 provides only 4-year-old program sked!:
http://am530.ca/AM-530-Program-Schedule-February2016.pdf
with generic ``South Asian (Punjabi/Hindi)`` overnights.

But LSB! I don`t recall anyone ever noting this anomaly before, as
most MW DXers are not alert for it, like on certain stations in
AZ/NM/CO we have monitored before. The effect of this, on longwire
with no antenna manipulation, is that tuning USB, Cuba is on top;
tuning LSB, CHLO is atop. Now if Enciclopedia would suppress its LSB,
we`d have a more equitable share (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. RE: unscheduled weather on 2598-USB before 0700 UT, Rick
Wald, Taber, Alberta, Canada, replies Jan 20 on the ptsw iogroup:

``Canada USB Broadcast 2598 is marine weather station. Labrador &
Newfoundland just had a Winter Storm of epic/historic proportions;
eclipsing every historic record they had. All in the last 96 hours!!
Any chance the 2 are related??`` -- that may well explain extra
broadcasts. I was merely wanting to find out from which of the six
possible stations without being able to hear an ID (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 20 at 2033, RHC English distorted with hum, as
heard on caradio. Wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Jan 20 at 2207, RHC Spanish S9+10 but Just Barely
Modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Jan 21 at 0714, this is the only RHC English frequency
of The Cuban Five still on the air, and it`s only S7-S8 and JBM.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 21 at 0715, Radio Rebelde is splattering plus/minus
10 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Jan 21 at 1544, China Plus relay is S9/+10 but JBM.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9095, Mon Jan 20 at 2245, JBA carrier vs utehash on
the plus side, presumed this week`s jumparound frequency from Echo of
Hope, instead of 9100 or 9105; indeed only 9095 is shown in the
current Aoki/NDXC listing. Perhaps Ron Howard will soon compile a
rundown of the other Monday changes this week; all the lower ones more
likely to be heard in our mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 9790.028, Jan 21 at 1550, Chinese at
S9-S7, of course, SAIPAN site scheduled this hour only with RFA. No
CNR1 jamming audible for a change against perpetually off-frequency
site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 379 kHz, Jan 21 at 0737 UT, ND beacon RUE, which
is 25 watts from Russellville Arkansas; and mixing with DL, which is
50 watts from Duluth - Pike Lake, Minnesota. Same pitch but different
periods. Also at 0739 mixing with BRA, which is 400 watts from
Asheville - Broad River, North Carolina.

392 kHz, Jan 21 at 0734 UT, ND beacon ML and dash, which is 500 watts
from La Malbaie - Charlevoix, Quebec, and not to be confused with the
listed 25-watt ML on 392 from Monroe, Louisiana; and mixing with FMZ,
which is 25 watts from Fairmont - Beklof, Nebraska. Similar pitches
but slightly different periods helping to unravel them. Note that
Beklof spelt backwards is Folkeb.

400 kHz, Jan 21 at 0731 UT, ND beacon AHQ, which is 25 watts from
Wahoo, Nebraska.

408 kHz, Jan 21 at 0730 UT, ND beacon JDM, which is 25 watts from
Colby - Wheatfield, in the NW corner of Kansas (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [non]. 15580, Jan 20 at 2034, VOA `The African Beat` music VG
and pause for some MLK info; on caradio. Unusually strong for BOTSWANA
site scheduled this hour aimed 10 degrees; wonder if GB substituting?
Still more fading than we get from single-hop Grimesland (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2017 monitoring: re what happened
to at least half of the IRRS airing missing, Mon Jan 20 at 1918 on
7290, Alfredo Cotroneo replies: ``Hi Glen[n], There was a tx failure
and we had to switch on another tx. 73 Alfredo``

As I said, popped back on air at *1930 as soon as WOR was finished;
FSN for a few minutes and at 1935.5 `Shortwave [sic] Report`, which
provides non-SW recordings of a few of Dan Roberts` favorite stations,
always RHC, usually DW, NHK, etc. Tsk2, in such a rut when he could
include far more diversity of sources, especially recording off
webcasts instead of direct via SW.

WOR 2017 also confirmed UT Tue Jan 21 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair via
UTwente -85-100 dBm, while here it`s a JBA carrier. Propagation
pitiful tonight with zero WRMI signals on 9955, 9455, 9395; very
degraded on the two 7s which are always stronger than 7780 due to
azimuths, 7730 and 7570. Next:

0900 UT Wednesday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.875v, Jan 20 at 2242, WBCQ reactivated with Brother
Scare, S7-S9. This transmitter has been languishing for months; AW
wanted to sell much time to a single client and apparently now BS has
bitten, despite already being on several other US SW frequencies so
this one hardly necessary. Is he on the WBCQ schedule? Of course not!
Only 6160 listing is the live AAAWWW UT Sat at 0100, even tho 6160v
has not been active then either. (It also still shows 9330 with WLC at
2030-0300 only instead of 23 hpd, or rather zero currently with latest
failure.) Is 6160 on the BS schedule? Of course not: ``Overcomer
Ministry Radio Log June 2019``. Still going at 0047 check Jan 21 at
poor S6-S7; and at 0713. May well be running 24 hours -- plug in, turn
him on and forget it. 6159.9v, WBCQ-4, was first noticed by Ivo in
Bulgaria, Jan 20 at 0815, but expected to be blocked there by WIS
Germany ``Shortwave Radio`` on 6160.0 from 0858 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 7490.25v, Jan 21 at 0129, `From the Isle of Music` is JBA on
WBCQ; propagation even worse than usual tonight. WBCQ ought flexibly
to put all its power into 3265v during these dark winter nights at
solar minimum, for a much greater propagational advantage (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3-CW, Jan 21 at 0153, single-letter beacon A is JBA
again altho I could not hear it last night; from somewhere in SW USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4930-USB, Jan 21 at 0716, JBA 2-way in Spanish with
talkovers, cambios. Available now after VOA Botswana at 03-06 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1900 UT January 21

** CANADA. Re my 2598-USB mystery, marine weather from NL area on the
air before 0700 UT when none is scheduled, sent my last report to Bill
Hepburn of dxinfocenter.com and he replies:

``Warnings are broadcast on receipt. I'm guessing they included
amended forecasts at the same time.

The official Canadian information can still be found at

https://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/publications/mcts-sctm/ramn-arnm/part1-eng.html
pdf version here ...

https://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/publications/mcts-sctm/ramn-arnm/docs/RAMN-ARNM-2019-eng.pdf
wrh``

I replied: ``Bill, I searched on 2598 in each file, and it is only
mentioned once each in the tables of frequencies for something or
other, NO details about stations, or times. I already hunted for that
at the site referred from sexion 1.1.1 without finding it. Glenn``

``Part 2 is loaded with station information

https://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/publications/mcts-sctm/ramn-arnm/part2-eng.html
as is the .pdf which contains the entire publication. wrh``

``Bill, Tnx, that`s what I was looking for --- I wasn`t getting any
hits on ``2598`` because every entry is ``2598J3E``. 39 of them, and
not one accounts for any broadcasts just before 0700 UT, my original
question. Other than your previous comment apparently meaning they
could show up at any time. 73, Glenn`` (Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 20 at 1520, RHC `Sonido Cubano` music is
overmodulated and distorted; OK on // 15230 on late, and 13700, with
no spurs today either. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 11570.023, Jan 20 at 1452, VOA Korean is
S9-S7; figured it would be SAIPAN so far off-frequency, and yes, it
is, at 14-15 per Aoki/NDXC. Previous bihour of same, however, 12-14 is
via Philippines (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2017 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
January 19 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, but JBA.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 20 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, good via
UTwente SDR Holland.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 20 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, good via
UTwente, and // 9395 poor. Then directly here, 7780 is good and 9395
JBA carrier. Also confirmed #2017 via WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 20 at 0400 on Area 51 webcast; at
0410 JBA on WBCQ 5130.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 20 at 0430 on WRMI webcast, but JBA
carrier on 9955.

Also confirmed Monday January 20 from 1901+ on IRRS 7290, Romania? via
UTwente SDR -- VG this week at -45 to -55 dBu readings, soon
increasing to 65-75. *1857 came on big carrier, 1859.5 JIP Aïda theme,
IRRS sign-on, 1900:40 FSN headlines and right into WOR.

HOWEVER, at 1918 I notice the signal is GONE! Probably some minutes
earlier; did not have headphones on but could still hear some audio
from them beside me until the noise now. Still OFF until *1930 WOR
over and comes right back on with FSN(?) news. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0900 UT Wednesday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. Doug Smith replies on the WTFDA Forum to my observations of
flashing PSIP calls on KMPX-30 ``29``, 01-16-2020, 09:15 AM:

``My guess (this is a guess) is KMPX has two "PSIP generators"
connected and they're programmed slightly differently -- one with the
"HD" and "-2" and one without the HD & dash.

The "PSIP generator" is a computer attached to the "stream
multiplexer". The multiplexer interleaves "packets" of PSIP data with
packets of audio and video data from the MPEG encoder(s).

PSIP packets are to be transmitted at varying intervals, depending on
what type of data is being transmitted (the "Virtual Channel Table",
or TVCT, is responsible for the way channel names display. There are
roughly a handful of other "tables" that do things internal to your
TV).

I'm guessing you're seeing data first from one generator & then from
the other. Presumably they have a backup unit & left both running at
the same time`` (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search January 20 from 1343
to 1354, local sunrise being 1341, now 3 minutes earlier than our
yearly latest a biweek ago, first on the R75 with E-W longwire so no
DFing, starting at top end:

1566, presumed FEBC Jeju Island, Korea South, the strongest up here
and I am carefully listening for it to go off between 1344 and 1345 at
scheduled beam change from Japanese to Chinese --- almost at 1344.5,
but it`s still there! past 1345 and the next 5 minutes, when finally
at 1354 I DF it on the handheld DX-398 as definitely from the NW, not
WSW. So was it so strong (I almost heard some audio at first) that
remained incoming after beamswitch, or did not change it on time
today? Just yesterday, my neighbor Richard Allen said it did:

``Oklahoma TP DX 1/19/2020, Richard Allen, Jan 19 #5906 IRCA
Except for hearing HLAZ closing down its transmission to Japan, TP DX
was non-existent here this morning. 1566, HLAZ barely audible signal
at 1337 (LSR 1339); barely audible talking and some music at
1341-1342: poor Japanese language talk before close at 1344. This was
the first trace of a TP signal here is nearly a fortnight. Usually
audible JOUB was last heard on 1/6. Receiver: Skywave with ALA1530LNP
aerial. Richard Allen, near Perry OK USA``

Meanwhile a quick check of some other 9-kHz channels: also carriers on
1593, 1557, 1548, 1143, 1044, 972 but lower ones are just about gone
after sunrise here.

AND at 1349, 1206-, off-frequency-minus. What could that be? MW
offsets has a VG choice:
``1205.96, CHN, Yanbian RGD Korean News General (Yanji/Longjing),
2000-1600, 2016-08-09``

That`s right next to Korea North, and at 200 kW is by far the
strongest PRC station, or any east Asian, on 1206. The only other
significantly below 1206 is an Indonesian, 1205.4, too far in more
ways than one (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15805, Jan 20 at 1518, buzz centered here covering about
10 kHz, but does not sound like usual DRM. Only thing scheduled here
was World Music Radio, Denmark, weekends only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9667.4, Jan 19 at 0154, Brazuguese from Voz Missionária
noted in quick bandscan jumped way further off frequency than usual
circa 9664.9; fair signal. JBA carrier on 9818.6 presumed R. 9 de
Julho. Both refined at 0330: 9667.478v and 9818.633 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA. 9415, Jan 18 at 2320 some country music adjacent to 9420
Greece, 2322 Vietnamese talk, lite long/short path echo. It`s CRI
Beijing site this hour only, 500 kW at 193 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6000 & 6145, Jan 18 at 0650, RHC English JBM; 6100 better,
5040 better yet, and 6060 also now in English and best by far of The
Cuban Five. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13326-trace, and progressively stronger FM/AM spurblobs at
68-70 kHz intervals circa 13394, 13462, 13532, 13601, 13677, Jan 18 at
2330 out of RHC 13740, with some matchers on the plus side circa
13809, 13880, 13947. Obviously same transmitter which does the same
thing most mornings when parked on 13700; and when 13740 is also on
the air from a different non-spurring unit. 13740 fundamental is
rather irregular in the evenings, and not heard at all a couple hours
later. It`s been a long time if ever since I`ve found a tarde spur
constellation like this on 13 MHz band. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 6080+, Jan 18 at 0648, rap music, must be VOA
relay as always significantly off-frequency+. Yes, 03-07 UT English in
three segments, 138 degrees until 05, then 20, and from 06, 0. Antenna
changes from type 156 to 106 at 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Sat Jan 18 at 2300+, no signal from VOT English to N
America, so no chance for 2400 German either. Something`s always wrong
at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Jan 19 at 0100 I notice that theatre organ
music is playing already, instead of usual 0130v start on WTWW-2; soon
I switch to $ tereo webcast. Final tune is ``Mr Sandman``, until 0133.5
finishes with ID and into ``real music``. I have yet to hear a
specific *name* for this show now out of Ozarx (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 1090, Jan 18 at 0659 UT, finally I tune in KAAY LR
AR early enough to tell what happen around hourtop: gospel song is cut
short for full legal ID proudly claiming to be a Cumulus station; two
or three PSAs, 0701 quick ID again and into dead air for four minutes
until 0705 resumes music.

Meanwhile I find main QRM is from a 96/minute SAH = 1.6 Hz, not XEAU
which is also barely audible, but something with stupid sports talk in
English, roughly NE/SW, which also means there is still a TA carrier
1089 het from Talksport UK. Format can`t be Catholic KEXS MO daytimer
which anyhow hasn`t been cheating lately. Most likely fit around that
axis is KVOP Plainview TX, U4 5/0.5 kW which is partially sportive
with FSR but supposedly nulling thisaway; not WBAL or the IL, IN, IA,
1090 stations; but there is less likely WCAR Livonia MI, U4 250/500
watts with SBN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1120, Jan 18 at 0710, KMOX St Louis with `Our American
Stories`, an engrossing and touching one. On UT Sats this is scheduled
1-5 am = 07-11 UT, while Mon-Fri it`s only 2-4 am = 08-10 UT. Details
of this nightly bihour of ``no politix``:
https://www.ouramericannetwork.org/recent_shows

KMOX has quite a variety of programming beyond a*s*o*e Rush;
https://kmox.radio.com/shows/show-schedule
-- even `Meet the Press` Sundays 8-9 pm = UT Mondays 02-03, which last
I checked was on a competing network. I guess such distinxions no
longer matter. No sign of `Face the Nation`! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2598-USB, Jan 19 at 0648 UT again I am hearing a roboyl
marine weather broadcast in English at a time when none scheduled at
http://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm
nor at
https://www.hfunderground.com/wiki/Maritime_Weather_Transmissions
- and the Canadian CG website seems to have deleted its once-extensive
scheduling of these. Mentions storm warnings, 0652 for northern Grand
Banx, then for southeastern G.B. Forecasts extend to Monday morning.
Visibilities often one mile or less. Also again there is a slight
reverb on her voice, either self-imposed from one transmitter, or from
two slightly unsynchronized transmitter sites. All the listed 2598
broadcasts are from six stations in Newfoundland & Labrador, or
adjacent Quebec (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 19 at 1505, S9+10 of dead air except for one
syllable which breaks thru; wiggle that patchcord! OK on 15230, 11760.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13568, 13634, 13767, 13834, 13901, 13967, 14033, 14100-trace,
approx., spurblobs out of RHC 13700, readable both in FM and AM but
not SSB, and with the F# tone in FM, progressively weaker toward the
outskirts where only the tone may giveaway. Now intruding into 20m
hamband where maybe some of them will notice and complain; to CO2KK?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2017 monitoring: not confirmed on
WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, nominal time 0415 UT Sunday January 19: checked

** U S A. 9330.0, Jan 19 at 1550, WBCQ-6 still off the air. Allan has
twitted nothing more about this blown screen bypass capacitor since
Jan 17, even in a new one today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, UT Sunday Jan 19 at 0702, KAAY LR AR again in dead air
until gospel music start at 0705. At least they are not totally
haywire like last weekend. No sign of an harmonic on 2180 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2182-USB, Jan 19 at 0636, YL voice JBA briefly, nothing
further for a minute. Since hearing a prolonged AM carrier here I pay
more attention to this once-important maritime calling and distress
frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7421.6-USB, Jan 19 at 1552, 2-way in Spanish, not
exactly intruding, but too close to Chinese on 7420-AM, i.e. CNR1
jamming RFA via Tajikistan, and tough luck for PBS Nei Menggu, Hohhot
839 site which ought to have 7420 to itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, UT Sat Jan 18 at 0133, RAE AAM via WRMI is
just concluding actualidaddx.com.ar with a song. Presumably to be
repeating 48 hours later after 0100 UT Mon Jan 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** PERU. 5980, Jan 17 at 2352, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until
autocutoff at 2353:42.5*, which is 2 seconds earlier than yesterday,
as time marches on. Leonardo Santiago, Venezuela, replies about what
the name means:

``Hi Glenn, I hope this e-mail may help you. Just look for the meaning
of Chaski in the following message sent to me by R. Mosoj Chaski from
Bolivia some months ago:

"Sr. Leonardo es muy grato saber que escucho nuestra sintonia, Mosoj
Chaski (esta en el idioma quechua) quiere decir Nuevo Mensajero somos
una radio emisora especialmente para nuestra gente quechua. el quinua
se produce especialmente en Potosi y Oruro. Dios el creo este mundo y
también a la humanidad lo bendiga mucho. Atte Mosoj Chaski."

I didn't translate as I know you also speak Spanish. Best, Leonardo
Santiago, Venezuela``

I.e. new messenger, so I assume Chaski alone is messenger. I should
have pointed out that we know 5980 apparently is carrying nothing but
programming from evangelical network:
https://redradiointegridad.com/
where Radio Chaski, 5980, is too insignificant even to mention. WRTH
shows it: ``LM09) OBZ4H 700 25 kW, San Miguel`` but address in Lima
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 17 at 2354, VOT is still on with IS, but cuts off
at 2355:06* --- no luck for bonus German hour; maybe tomorrow when
Nauen vies for frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Fri Jan 17 from 2110, VOA Grimesland with `Music Time
in Africa`, VG signal off the back. Hyper Heather Maxwell gives her
name every other break. (Fortunately I am far too modest to impose
that upon my listeners -- only thrice in 29 minutes, at start, middle
and finish.) Dumps off the air abruptly at 2140, but resumes in less
than a minute. Wraps up with citation of her program times on VOA,
always omitting this very one, by far the best one we can hear. Also
as usual, the YDD sign-off at 2200 is cut off before it finish (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2017 monitoring: confirmed NOT
filling the blank field on the WRMI skedgrid, Friday January 17 at
2100 on 7780 -- rather something musical. Missed checking Fri 2300 on
9955 --- did anyone hear it, and how bad was the jamming? I remember
to check at 2352, when in Spanish but no jamming: go figure.

Confirmed UT Sat Jan 18 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+10/20, // 5010
Poor S9 with LAH on the lower side, Madagascar? At 0200* of WRMI, I
can still detect that JBA carrier alone. AND WOR from 0130 IS ON 7780
but VP. Last week 7780 carried APS Radio music, so I figured it had
replaced WOR, but here we are again, and remain on the skedgrid too.

** U S A. 7490.273, Jan 18 at 0050, WBCQ during FKB gospel huxter has
drifted up to here, ex-7490.245, VP S4-S6; no signal yet on 5130.

At 0100 some unknown music starts on 7490+, not the AAAWWW theme WTO.
Finally just before 0107 cosmikdebris (Larry Will) and Jane start
talking, as substitutes in a ``Lumpy Gravy-type show``. Says also on
5130 and 9330 is on but with other programming [not]. Yes, 5130 is now
on // and a little better but both VP so I switch to webcast: oh2,
7490 cast has Brother Scare on it! But Area 51 has AAAWWW [non], where
I listen:

A lot more back-and-forth banter between them than from A&A where
Angela must be prodded to say something. Says A&A had other plans this
evening in Florweirda. 0125 he discusses some unusual FM tropo DX in
January, getting Norfolk stations where he is NW of DC in MD.

Over to John H Carver for a fuller report: ``No signal of any kind on
7490. 5130 had Brother Scare till two minutes after the top of the
hour and then went into music. At 0107 Larry and Jane Will came up and
said they were hosting the show this evening. Some talk of the rapid
change in the weather in Maryland. Jane stated that they were going to
do a show more like Lumpy Gravy instead of AAWWW. Then into some
music. Then some talk about sunspots and general dismal solar
conditions.

5130 started to degrade about 0126. Then some talk about improved MW
and FM reception in their area. Around 0133 audio really got garbled
at times. Program went into more music at this time. At 0148 Larry
went over some of the schedule marred by some hams underneath the
signal. Checked above and below the frequency and didn't find another
station interfering. At 0150 back to some music. At 0155 the constant
top of the hour IDs started up again and went to the top of the hour.
John, Mid-North Indiana``

As for 9330, which has been off today, a twit from Allan around 20 UT:
``Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ · 9h Superstation down. Blown screen bypass
capacitor. Poor design here. Working on it now. All other BCQ’s fine.
Extremely cold at the site. High winds do not help. The joys of
winter. Allan&Angela Worldwide tonight at 8pm 7490/5130khz. Who knows
what? See the screen short.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0513 UT January 18
