** ASCENSION. 21630, Tue July 23 at 1424, JBA carrier is the OSOB and
thus the SSOB. Per EiBi & Aoki, it`s BBC Hausa at 1400-1430 M-F, but
1100-1430 Sat - and never on Sunday? Here we are near the solar cycle
peak and 13m band is drastically underused. Not a single transmission
to or from North America! It should work at least over day paths from
European or African afternoons into our mornings. Only SPAIN is
interested in such a service, but 16mb suffices when it`s not missing
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, July 23 at 0655, S9+30 of dead air from R. Rebelde.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009-, July 23 at 2158, VOT not off the air, IS & IDs,
S7/S9 direct vs high local line noise level. At 2232 into UTwente when
measured, S9+30/45, ``always-by-your-side`` promo, `Turkey`s Geomarked
Products` about olive oil soap from Mina? on the Aegean coast. 2235
music. 2238 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music, 2248 ``w-y-e-h``
again. 2252 s/off ignoring SW and IS once to 2253* chop, no finesse
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2252 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday July 23 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9/+12 into Querétaro SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday July 23 at 1319 the 1300 on WRMI 9955 not off
the air, S6/S9 direct.

Also confirmed Tuesday July 23 at 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia,
1322.994, S7/S9 into Cavriglia SDR, since Noale & Parma are offline,
and the three in Trieste are not getting it at all. There is lite
musical CCI, Romania? NWlist shows 15 kW there finishing at 2000, but
50 kW in Azeri from Iran until 2020*. Also audible into UTwente, S9
but noisy reading 1322.991.

``Listener report. WOR on 1323 kHz AM (via Italy) --- Hello Glenn, I
can confirm that you are now on 1323 kHz from Nexus International
Broadcasting Corp., medium wave, transmitting from Milano Italy. Your
WOR program was heard in the Township of Owingen, Lake Constance
County, Southern Germany on a Sangean DT200X with internal ferrite
rod antenna (no external antenna!), with SINPO 55444, on July 23 2024
at 2007 UTC. I have sent the station a QSL request (online) but just
wanted to let you know that your program is getting out on that QRG.
Attached is a short audio snippet for you. Hope you enjoy it and
great to hear your voice on the AM band. Coincidentally I listened to
your MP3 edition earlier today on a bike ride. Glenn Hauser is there
on Nexus while the rest of Europe is shutting down AM for good. Not
sure how you made that happen but this is awesome. Well done! 73! Matt

P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, July 23 at 0659, WRMI back on with RFI ID in Spanish
closing its broadcast. No ID but carrier cut for a few sex before 0700
resuming with Polish Radio External Service in English via WRN.
Coincidental, or cut for a reason to change antenna or transmitter?
Seems the same S9+20 afterwards and undermodulated. A few seasons ago,
WRMI had different day and night frequencies for some transmitters,
but skeds no longer show any of that (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1650+/-, July 23 at 0652 UT, continuous tone from KSVE El
Paso TX, as previously approx. 420 Hz - shouldn`t it be 440? Seems to
be constant every night. Some more responses to my reports:

``[WOR] Re Glenn's UNIDENTIFIED. 1650.42 & 1649.58 approx. Eric
Fetters-Walp, Jul 20 #41975, IRCA iog: ``I get out of the habit of DXing 
on MW in the peak of summer, but after following this discussion on the 
board and hearing Glenn talk about it in this week's episode of "World of
Radio," I turned on my receiver at 0605 UTC/11:05 p.m. PDT and heard
the tone immediately upon tuning in 1650 kHz. In fact, it was the only
thing I could really hear as neither KBJD and KFOX were dominating the
frequency.

I also checked the SDRs in Lubbock, Texas, and Truth or Consequences,
New Mexico, and found the tone stronger but matching exactly what I
heard. It was really loud via the Lubbock SDR! Here north of Seattle,
the tone was audible for the entire time I listened until 0630 UTC. It
faded in and out and "wobbled" somewhat, but it never fully
disappeared here. Assuming this is indeed KSVE, I'm about 1,388 miles
from that station's transmitter. Eric Fetters-Walp, Lake Stevens,
Washington``

Rick Barton, WOR iog: ``[NOTE]: 1650, We have been hearing this loud
hum-whine here for months, never got around to asking if other DXers
had an opinion on it, when we finally saw it mentioned recently by
Glenn Hauser. Here, always very strong when loops are oriented for E/W
reception. Sometimes can't be nulled out, and can still be audible
(albeit less signal strength) with loops oriented N/S.  Tuned in
again, just to verify, at 4:30A local {1130 UT} on 4 band battery
portable and internal loop bar. -- Barton-AZ`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

This report dispatched at 2323 UT July 23
** VANUATU. 9960, July 23 at 0658, tune-in just in time to hear R.
Vanuatu go off*. Later on, 1000-1100, before s/off, it`s now being
reported on 7260 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 14670 RC USB, July 22 at 2209, CHU timesignals back on, S9,
so I resynchronise my watch (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, July 23 at 0113, S9+25 of dead air direct from RHC, or
maybe a trace of modulation? 6000 is only S7/S9 of dead air. 15230 is
S6/S7 JBM seems English? No signals on 11760 or 11950. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``Castroism caps prices to remain in power in Cuba --- The only
possible outcome when prices are capped as an anti-inflationary policy
is chronic shortages, the proliferation of the black market and,
finally, a spike in inflation.
Rafaela Cruz, La Habana 18 Jul 2024 - 18:40 CEST
A line at an MSME in Havana. 14ymedio

Sweat trickled down his calves, accumulating in the worn-out tennis
shoes he wore without socks; his feet, slipping around inside those
shoes, made embarrassing squeaks as he walked, drawing glances that at
another time would make him blush, but, after 45 minutes of waiting in
line, nothing mattered to him more than finally standing in front of
the clerk...``
https://diariodecuba.com/economia/1721320836_56089.html

MSME? What`s that? Never explained; we are supposed to know it.
Googling it leads to -- India?! ``Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium
Enterprises`` -- and as I added in a report a couple years ago:

```This article never explains what MSME means! I Googled it: ``Micro,
Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs)`` There must be quite a different
term and abbr. in original Spanish; EMPM?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 13740, July 22 at 0050, sounds like hymn,
but must not be since listed as 2300-0300 CRI Spanish via Kashgar,
land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems;
S9+10 with flutter, and the OSOB/SSOB except for 13790 ALGERIA (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.86 AM, July 22 at 0042, S9+10 open carrier from
Enid CB pirate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 102.3, July 22 at 2018 UT, routine bandscan on caradio
during `dead` conditions hits something here unusual, not // 740 KRMG;
with national ads, weather ``from Classic Communications, Q-102`` i.e.
KWDQ Woodward. Tho 100/100 kW, less heard than other fullpowers there.
Or rather Q102 per WTFDA FMDB, no hyphen and could also be Q102.3. If
there were a hyphen, it could only be WVRQ-FM, Viroqua WI, but I bet
they don`t pronounce the hyphen (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17715, July 21 at 2301, t/in just in time to hear IS start
after weekend s/off of SAm frequency until 2303.6*. 17855 for NAm
already off. In fact, Paul Walker says he was not hearing it at all on
Sat or Sun. I don`t pay much attention to REE on weekends since there
is no English; tho I could understand their Spanish, there aren`t
enough hours in the day and lots of it`s silly ballgames (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Mon July 22 at 2200, this REE frequency for NAm is
still AWOL, but token SNR English audible almost as well, S9+10/20
direct on SAm channel 17715; then 15520 offback to ME, which is
sometimes better depending on MUF; and 15390 for Africa detectable.
Preview topix: Iberian Lynx numbers have recovered to 2000, no longer
endangered, will interview Guillermo López of an organization
protecting them; and a report about some code? News 2201.6 leading
with Pres. Biden dropping out. 2219.5 contact info, then on the
Moroccan Family Code about oppression of women, called shuma? or
search leads to: ``In 2004, Morocco reformed its family code, known as
the “Moudawana.” The “Moudawana” expands women's rights and
protections in relation to marriage, divorce, child custody, and
inheritance. The new law promotes the principles of justice and
equality between men and women``. I didn`t catch what`s new about this
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785+, July 21 at 2200 and further chex, NO signal of VOT
English into UTwente; nor on previous goofs 11795, 9875. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler. So we miss the weekly `Letterbox`; one
more chance, UT Monday July 22 after 0300 on 7275, 6165 --- NO, BOTH
those are OFF at 0317 & 0340 UTwente chex. Something else is even more
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.020-, July 22 at 2159, VOT English not off the air,
S9+10/20 direct but local noise level still a problem. 2218
``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music. 2232 into UTwente when measured,
S9+25/40, multi-lingual ID filler reel, music. 2239 `That`s Why` by Ms
Badax about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 2244 music.
2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2254 s/off by Ms Badax as
if this were the 1230 on 17620. 2255 IS until 2255.6*.

Also: ``Voice of Turkiye Emirler station will be off air 1000-1600 UT
for engineering work on July 23 and 24, according to an announcement
on the station. Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.``, WOR iog 
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11880, July 22 at 0052, S9+20/30 of open carrier, preceding
the 01-02 UT KBS Spanish relay via Grimesland. Is it really necessary
to burn all those kW just to ``warm up`` a transmitter, probably more
than just 8 minutes wasted? Is KBS charged for that? They could at
least modulate it with something, like KBS IS, YDD, SSB NA or even --
VOA news in English!? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2252 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 21 at 2000 on WRN Europe stream.

Also confirmed Sunday July 21 at 2130 on SW Gold Radio, Germany,
6160.002- at S9+10 and 3975.004- at S8/S9 into UTwente.

Also confirmed Sunday July 21 at 2330 on WRMI 7570, S9/+15 into

** U S A. WTWW: George McClintock info circa 01 UT July 22: power
outage instead of WOR July 20 at 0400: widespread tnx to TVA hydro or
nuclear failure covering much of TN. Internet was also out so he could
not remotely turn transmitter back on when power resumed. Misc. other
items: Hope to have #3 transmitter running in a sesqui- or bi-week;
current problem is lack of control card for its air conditioner. Bob
Biermann has cancer. Ted Randall was broadcasting from Lebanon
hamfest, but did not show up today, raising concerns about his health.
Harris xmtr has a loose panel which flaps when the AC is on. TOMBS
wants to get on WTWW, and probably will tho George is not happy about
Bro. Stair`s anti-Catholic and anti-papal comments.

And later an email: ``WTWW: water leak --- 9 gallons of water leaked
when a hose that was secured with a wire tie broke free. This wire tie
was placed on by the previous engineer. WTWW now has a metal 
clamp that will prevent this from happening again. We had to go and 
purchase distilled water to make up for the water loss. The #1 
transmitter did not get back on until 7 pm Central. George McClintock 
7-22-2024`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9335-9365 approx., July 22 at 2212, filthy WWCR-2 signal
with squeals and squawks if you tune either side from 9350 which is
S9+40/50. Likewise or even worse WWCR-4, 9965-9995 with TOMBS which is
S9+60 on center 9980. Other freqs of #2 are 5935, 7490, 12160; of #4,
7520, 5890. Similar problems affect 5890 & 5935, all these exacerbated
by excessive signal strength; on 85 or 90 degree azimuths, or almost
directly off the back to here. Not so much the #1 & #3 frequencies
allegedly at 46 and 40 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. July 22 at 0617+ UT, distinctive voice of a guest on `Coast
to Coast AM` about UFOs or something, audible on multiple frequencies
almost in a row, but not exactly synchronized, 980, 960, 950, 940,
930; also 850, 840, 690, 600, 580, 560, 1150. Or course there are many
more if you dig. Noticed because of an echo under local 960 KGWA; also
under 1150 KSAL KS. Showsite
https://www.coasttocoastam.com/stations/
is organized by state rather than frequency. So a few guesses from
last year`s NRC AM Log listings, based on proximity, previous log,
night power: 1150: WJBO LA, KRMS MO or WIMA OH. 980: KMBZ MO. 960:
KZIM MO or WERC AL, and BTW KGWA not shown with C2C tho is on
showsite. 950: KWOS MO. 940: KIXZ TX. 930: WTAD IL. The others should
be obvious (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1030, July 22 at 0614 UT, weather, ``NewsRadio WBZ``, really
Boston? Yes, 0615 Roxbury mentioned: gotta know your suburbs. Seldom
heard but always a pleasure as the most distant ``clear`` in the US
for me, 1485 miles, slightly further than Seattle. WBZ advantage is
direxional-west night and day to avoid serving the Atlantic and
beyond. Lite QRM in Spanish, which could be Memphis, Kansas City, or
Corpus Christi if not Mexico (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, July 22 at 0040 UT, silly sportstalk from KWKH, still
no KLEY KS. In case it matter, since they never powered down from 250
to 1 watt when operable, KLEY SS/SR times for July are 0145/1115;
August 0130/1145. And 50/50 kW KWKH pattern change times: July
0130/1115; August 0100/1145. But July 22 at 1531 UT, KLEY is back on.

At 0143-0146 UT July 23 I am monitoring 1130 on the E/W longwire. KWKH
sportstalk is already dominant, mixing with music from KLEY. Neither
to the eye on the S-meter nor to the ear to the phone is there any
change in KLEY signal when it legally has to drop from 250 to ONE
WATT; but it conveniently IDs at 0145 as ``104.1 & 1130 KLEY`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1440v, July 22 at 0624 UT and many other times, LAH = low
audible heterodyne against the 1440.00 pileup. Per
http://mwlist.org/mwoffset.php?khz=1440
it`s most likely KFUV Little Rock AR, nothing else in USA so far above
or below, at 1439.9678 as of 2021-04-04, i.e. 32.2 Hz off (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15133-15155 approx., July 22 at 2207, OTHR clickery
again, INTRUDER altho no broadcast victims in this range now (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15809 USB, July 22 at 0047, weak 2-way net, or rather
multi-way, language uncertain but unseems Spanish or English. Hardly
any broadcast signals on 19 mb. The only hits on 15809 in the UDXF iog
are in three numbers-station logs, not as a frequency. Nothing in
Klingenfuß 2022 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 21490, July 21 at 0114, JBA Chinese, presumed CNR1 jammer vs
Sound of Hope. Also carriers but no mod presumably likewise, on 18985,
18970, 18965 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, July 21 at 0131, music at S9+10, no doubt Channel
292. Hard to believe this be only 2 kW as licensed, even considering
antenna gain. Publicized as 10 kW; has been known to get time on
Moosbrunn, AUSTRIA, 100 kW, but presumably only for sold programming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. 18138 USB, July 21 at 0119, IK2FST calls KA4WHT,
after Paul, S9+20 in Pembroke Pines FL calls CQ 17, but instead he
answers some other Eurostation, Germany? Not heard here; anyhow,
QRZ.com: ``IK2FST Italy flag Italy, cecilio SCARPANTI, Lodi, LO 26900,
Italy``. At 0121 on 18155 USB, had a DL8++ in the Black Forest, with a
WB9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 770, July 21 at 0700, nothing but Spanish, not a bit of
WABC or KKOBs, promo `La Radio de la República` show at some afternoon
time, ``en Grupo Fórmula, 970 AM``. Likely XEACH Monterrey NL: yes,
that chex on website:
https://www.radioformula.com.mx/nacional/2023/7/17/cambios-de-horario-en-radio-formula-se-mueven-chumel-joaquin-ruiz-healy-desde-el-lunes-24-771840.html
but note that was a *year ago*. Lots of stuff on website, but can`t
find a plain old program schedule or network affiliate list (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 28228 CW, July 21 at 0105, JBA OBOB almost copied
after multiple passes with fading, EEEEEEE DE ZL3TEN and more
including ANT; was not sure of last letter, seemed like F rather than
EN, but got to be this per WGB list:
``28228 ZL3TEN - Rolleston, Christchurch NZL RE66ej - #0 (09 Jan 2024)
Note: ID + grid + eee`` -- QRZ.com: ``ZL3TEN New Zealand flag New
Zealand, The Christchurch VHF DX Group, C/o 18 Westbelt, Rangiora
7400, New Zealand`` - I`ve heard it before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880 USB, July 21 at 0100, OPOB at S9+10 equal to
HSNL, jazz/blues, 0102 non-ID announcement, song. These say it was
Texas Radio Shortwave via Mix Radio International, both before and
after 0100:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,131712.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.82 approx., July 21 at 0112, strong and steady
local CB pirate carrier but no modulation now and no other channels.

27184.79 approx., July 21 at 1448, S9 open carrier, with intermittent
rude vocal QRM slightly higher, ~27184.94. No skip in now (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. `TIME FOR A RECKONING`: KANSAS FARMERS BRACE
FOR CUTS TO SAVE OGALLALA AQUIFER
By Kevin Hardy, Allison Kite, Stateline.org and The Kansas Reflector
(TNS)

https://www.pressreader.com/usa/las-vegas-review-journal/20240627/282406994540459

What has this to do with radio? Surely there be a correlation between
the Ogallala Aquifer and the central US region with greatest ground
conductivity. That means enhanced coverage of MW and LW signals by
groundwave, as we are so fortunate to live in that area. Look for the
30s, which are found nowhere else in the USA - except along the Texas
Gulf coast:

** TURKEY. Continued from last report: 11785.009, VOT English via
UTwente: 2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2253 s/off by OM
not ignoring SW but as always for the wrong transmission, 1230 on
17620, then satellite and internet. 2254 IS, 2256 restart IS with
German IDs until 2258.2* chopoff. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K Q O G B A N I. BBC Proms 2024 season underway --- ``Hey Glenn,
I hope all is well. I haven't heard you mention anything about the BBC
Proms this year. I found this link to the Proms page and it started
yesterday. I hope you enjoy the selections this year.

Chris Campbell, Ohio``

Tnx, Chris; I had sought info on BBC websites but kept getting only
2023 stuff.
For Radio 3 linx to listen on demand, 3 so far. Usually these expire a
month after, or a month after the Last Night:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2252 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 20 at 2300 on WTWW 9474.980, S9+5/20 into Maryland SDR; first I
tried UTwente which I already had running for Turkey, registered S7/S9
but JBA to the ear. Not a lobe toward Europe? Who knows. HFCC once
showed due south, 180 degrees, but it certainly does well due west.
Strangely, latest HFCC has no TWW entries on 5085 or 9475, rather
three frequencies not yet? in use, 5830, 9930, 12105; with 9930 only
at 180.

NOT confirmed UT Sunday July 21 at 0000 on WRMI 9955 into Maryland
SDR, music instead, some of it gospel, tho WOR still on WRMI websked.
Canceled without notice? What next?

Confirmed UT Sunday July 21 at 0331 about 6 minutes into so started
circa 0325 the 0315v on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+10/15 into nearby SDR,
with HSNL.

Also confirmed Sunday July 21 at 1048 the 1030 on WRMI 9955; had not
checked in longtime but fortunately happened to awaken. Was supposedly
on internet only at this hour per skedgrid; but now the ``except on
weekends`` applies.

Also confirmed Sunday July 21 at 1900 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.995,
S8.5 noisy into UTwente across Europe, but better than Trieste SDR
gets it. Next:

** U S A. ** U S A. WTWW: George McClintock forwards a series of
messages with photos sent to Al Rillera, apparently a visiting
engineer, as captioned:

``The Harris SW100 AC breaker went bad and would not turn on. It was
replaced with a new one. A lot went bad while you were gone. More bad
news to follow tomorrow. We look forward to your return to Nashville.

The #1 transmitter high voltage ON, went bad and the transmitter would
not turn off. REPLACED.

Inductors cleaned. Dirty inductor in the SW100 Harris. Cleaned and
lubricated.

I have just removed the 4 loading inductors (coils) from the Harris
SW100 number 3 transmitter and placed them in cleaning vinegar. After
washing, they are ready to be put back into place. These coils were so
dirty that the motors were having a difficult time moving them. I had
to put a voltage regular in that had been removed and the wires tied 
together by the previous engineer. The high voltage power supply is 
working well. George McClintock  7-17-2024

Some of these resistors on the power module have changed value and had
to be replaced.

This is the phase detector that was bad, causing the transmitter to
turn off after a very few minutes or seconds.

Unless I am mistaken, this is the relay to keep the SW100 blowers
running after shutdown. It does not work. No adjustment seems to make
it work. I am in the process of getting another relay from the
transmitter in storage in the middle building. George McClintock
7-19-2024`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 21 at 0134 tune-in, JBA carrier, then big open
carrier on and off; by 0136 rock at S9+30/40: guess that would have to
be gospel rock, on WRNO. IIRC in seasons past there has been something
Eastern Hemispherian sharing 7505, but nothing else listed now. Maybe
the JBA carrier was WRNO exciter only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, July 21 at 0703 UT, no music, nothing but stupid
sportstalk from tigric KWKH LA: KLEY Wellington (Wichita) KS must be
off instead of usual 250 W day power cheatery at night; or legal one
watt? Hardly, at 1617 UT recheck, no daytime groundwave signal either
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15140-15165 approx., July 21 at 0124, OTH radar
clickery; seems more of that lately inside broadcast bands, but
nothing to QRM here.

7480-7495 approx., July 21 at 0135, OTH radar QRMing `SW Saturday
Night` on WBCQ 7490-; not 25 kHz wide and not so strong but still
audible under J.P.

7405-7422 approx., July 21 at 0137, OTH radar, same sound as above
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185.085 approx. AM, July 20 at 1438, Enid CB pirate
S9+30 with loop? of hard rock music and mention of Walgreen`s - I
quickly scan local FM band for a match, not 105.5 or anything else.
Digging deeper at 1442, but it`s off. Was not on a second or third //,
and maybe different than the one I had been hearing which was always
on the minus side of 27185 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785.009, Sat July 20 at 2200, VOT English not
off the air, S9+45 into UTwente, but QRM from OTH radar for the first
time heard here, range approx. 11783-11808, in the clear on 11790 &
11795, but not such a problem to ROMANIA 11800 which is even stronger
S9+50. That stops maybe 10 minutes later. 2215 sounder and ``the news
continues``. 2218 `The Energy Agenda` repeat about impact of
Russia/Ukraine war. 2224 music. 2228 multi-lingual ID filler reel.
2230 music. 2239 `Turkey`s Geomarked Products`` repeat about Van
breakfasts. 2242 music. 2245 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, 2245

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2252 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT
Saturday July 20 at 0400 on WTWW 5085: had been usual VG signal
direct, but at exact moment WOR should start, cut off the air! George
McClintock explains: ``power failure``. Did not resume before 0430.

** U S A. 9265, Sat July 20 at 0639, surprised to hear Spanish gospel
huxter on WINB, S9+10/25. Does their program sked show it? Of course,
not! Supposedly TOMBS. Elsewhen there is one with a Spanish name and
two in English labeled (Spanish) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [and non]. 15595, Sat July 20 at 0635, RCC `news`
concerning Africa; surprised to hear English here. Per EiBi at

English: Friday 1130-1200; daily 1615-1630. As usual one of the SSOB

** CANADA. 14670 RCUSB, July 19 at 1639, no signal from CHU at local
range into Ottawa KiwiSDR, while 3330 & 7850 are locally strong. Some
time July 18 tuning across direct, I had noticed it missing. As Karl
Zuk points out, their ``system status``
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, July 19 at 0658, S9+40 of dead air from R. Rebelde:
something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA. 28160 CW, July 18 at 2204, VVV DE HP1RIS/B plus a lot more
letters uncopied, JBA fading out and could not copy for sure every

** SPAIN. 17855, July 19 at 2200, token English from REE, S9+20/30
direct and also audible on the other three. One preview topic to be
about ME athletes in the Olympix. Lead news item, global Microsoft
outage; *rump speech. At 2224 listening S7/S9 via Bonaire SDR, sports
interview by Lebanon correspondent, 2228 bit of music fill resulting
from a `Bogotá` festival yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.020-, Fri July 19 at 2158, VOT not off the air, IS
and English IDs, S9+10/20 direct but not enough to overcome line noise
level. 2223 into Bonaire SDR, song at S9/+10 but considerable 11780
ACI; S9+40/45 into UTwente. At 2229 when measured, `Weekly Analysis`
about Ukraine war, nuke threat, NATO etc. 2235 `with-you-every-hour`
promo, song. 2240 `Turkish Folk Tales` about a bottomless peat, and a
sultan. 2248 TRTVOTWorld.com promo, music. 2254 s/off ignoring SW, few
sex of IS before 2255* chop, no finesse. Something`s always erroneous
at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7633.5 USB, July 19 at 0702, ``MARS Radio``, with tones,
brief contacts, ``BFJQ`` fonetikaly. AF MARS logged previously long

** U S A [and non]. 9955, July 19 at 0652, WRMI again on late, not
with RFI Spanish but MEish chanting, almost Qur`anish; this has
happened before as if deliberately scheduled as such contrary to
websked. Still overshadows VANUATU on 9960 until 0659 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490 -69 Hz = 7489.931, July 20 at 0000, WBCQ, S9/+10 into
NH SDR with `AAAWWW`, not disclaimed as a replay, but obviously is
last week`s when he started talking about toilets: never mind. Then,
he was ``trimulcasting`` and said so, and I bet that`s still on this
playback despite 3265+ and 5130- being off the air now; while as usual
6160 had TOMBS before 2400 and still some gospelhuxter into the new
day; so, monalcasting? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, July 19 at 0650, no sign of WMLK, while 19m is not
totally dead of all signals. There they go again; we`ll never know
what DEJOM would have said, but I am sure it were stale (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1120, July 19 at 0713-0716+ UT, S9+35 of dead air, obviously
KMOX St Louis - even such a major outlet can fail like this; if not
some required testage (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
