Hauser
** ANDORRA [non]. 6180, April 2 at 1832, VG S9+35/40 into UTwente,
monthly R. Andorra Revival show via AUSTRIA, as previewed by that guy
on WOR, and reminded now by Alan Roe. Classic jazz pieces and quite a
bit of conversation in French only, even applause; 1835 jazz piano.
1858 sounds like a national anthem, Andorra`s? Besides this did the
original station ever have any programming *about Andorra* itself?
Never caught any ID until right at 1859 closing, in Spanish, not
Catalan; and first four notes of AWR theme before chopped off air,
oops. I see that next from Moosbrunn at 1900 is AWR Hausa on 11955.

This reminds me to wonder, despite the huge SW language schedule of
AWR, how many e.g. Hausa, presumably Islamic, they are converting to
Infidels, this particular Christianish sect? Wikipedia says there are
only 21.8 mega-Adventists in the entire world of which 21.4 are of the
Seventh Day. They have a long way to go; e.g. there are 4X as many
Methodists, but split into many more subilx (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, April 2 at 1445-1450, no trace of LRA36
this Saturday into four Brasil, one Uruguay SDRs (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, April 2 at 0216, RHC English is S9/+10 but suptorted,
0300 a little better but unlistenable. See also TURKEY [and non].

By 0557 direct I detect: 6000, S9+10/20 of dead air in English; 6060,
S9+10/20 with OK mod; 6100, S9+20/30; 6165 OFF. 6140 is S4/S5 with no
modulation audible, but probably a leapfrog of 6060 over 6100 another
40 kHz beyond. 5040 is still on but in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** FINLAND. Scandinavian Weekend Radio is scheduled on almost-monthly
first-Saturday 24-hour broadcast until 2100 April 2. So I look for it
at 1940 via UTwente: Nothing audible on 5980 or 11690; 6170 has strong
VOA Kurdish via Biblis this hour; 11720 has a weak signal maybe this
when nothing else is scheduled per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420: Numerous monitors have been trying to hear VOG since
``reprieve`` until May 31 instead of closing as of March 31, but
without success. At 2210 April 2, UTwente is barely locking onto a
weak 9420 signal, probably CNR6 Amoy service; with huge splash from
tinkling HF Chinese music on 9410, i.e. the CRI ``Portuguese`` hour
via East Turkistan. No sign of Greece. As I said before, word may be
slow getting to Avlis site about the reprieve, so let`s hope they
haven`t destroyed anything yet. Not now on 9935 either and I find hard
to believe some blog about that, 1655 also an odd time of day for a
mass broadcast. Keep checking 9420: it used to be on early UT Sundays
for Orthodox mass, lovely music, around 0600/0700 then off for the
rest of Sunday until Monday evening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 14580, Sat April 2 at 1821, checking IRRS, 24 hours
after WOR aired on Friday. Music on second harmonic from Kostinbrod,
Bulgaria at S5 with RTTY QRM on USB side only, soon // much stronger
7290, S9+10 with `The Country Jamboree`. Same JBA on MW 1323 under
German from Romania; all via UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 6165, April 2 at 0335, VOT English is just barely
detectable under RHC. Someone concerned about this urged me to notify
RHC. Well, that`s not my job, but I point out that VOT 6165 is not
aimed at us but the ME or S Asia.

7270, despite being an INTRUDER into the exclusive NAm hamband is in
fact for us, and even unto Bonaire is VG S9+10, with `Feeling Supreme`
theme at 0335 April 2. Hams avoid it. During the 03-04 Turkey hour,
RHC listeners have alternative of 6000, should it happen to be
decently modulated. See also CUBA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 2 at 2230, VOT, S9+50! into UTwente with a
feature about biscuits [cookies?] in `Turkey`s Geo-marked[?]
Products`, 2241 `Turkish Cuisine`. Weak RTTY could be heard only after
it closed circa 2255 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, April 2 at 0500.8 to 0506.5, English `Ukraine:
Security Issue`` from UR1 via WRMI, back to Ukrainian. The opening
from 0500 included a timecheck including ``дватсет час`` = 20 hours,
as if that were the original airtime recorded = 17 UT rather than 00
UT, maybe a repeat already. Anyhow, U:SI is a very well-done summary
of the day`s events, with dramatic stingers, YL announcer and easy to
understand (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2132 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday April 2 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/15 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Saturday April 2 from *0412 on WBCQ 4789.979, joined
in progress after having been off the air for 22 minutes from 0350*
during FTIOM. Must have started playback on time at 0400, over at 0429
and sign-off 0430*. They might have waited until transmitter restored
as nothing would follow at 0430 anyway. I bet no one else kept
listening to noise on 4790 pending resumption of WOR. Meanwhile I was
timing the about 2-second-long uteblaaaps, sounding every 4:00 minutes
exactly, such as about 5 seconds past these minutes logged whether
WBCQ was on or not: 0415, 0443, 0447, etc. What and why??

Also confirmed Saturday April 2 at 1930 on WRMI 15770, S9+25/30 into
Maine SDR, S8/S9 into UTwente. Also started slightly earlier than 1930
on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, S9+8 into nearby Warrenton SDR.
ALSO at same time now on a third outlet, WRN North America webcast.

Also confirmed UT Sunday April 3 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, now aimed SW,
but only S7/S9, noisy and not solid into Brownsville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday April 3 at 0130 on North American webcast of
WRN.

Did anyone confirm the new Unique Radio, Australia broadcast at 0700
UT Saturday on 5035 USB or 3210 USB, or webcast, or via remote? This
and the other one at 1000 Wednesday, and IRRS 9510 at 1030 Sunday are
during my sleep cycle, so would appreciate anyone awake checking.

Thanks this week for financial support from Keith Konnerth, KC8YJW,
for a contribution via PayPal not necessarily in US$ to
woradio at yahoo.com and says, ``keep the Ukraine info coming.``

One may also contribute by MO or check on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P
O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4789.979, UT Sat April 2 at 0200, WBCQ Radio Angela starting
tonight with repeat of `Polka Party` with Marion Webster & Kristina,
minus 21v Hz displayed by the SAM of Maryland SDR. And after 0300
repeat of `From the Isle of Music` --- but dumps off the air at 0350*
and not back until *0412 during WORLD OF RADIO, q.v. (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, April 2 at 0211 check, this WRMI is still OFF, and so
is its parasite on 4975. Ditto at 0328. Fortunately, #4 carried
nothing but TOMBS cult except for one hour of the SMTV cult. Maybe
TOMBS funding reduced for Q2? But still on skedgrid.

5985, April 2 at 0329 and later, no signal either from WRMI-2, still
on skedgrid as 0330-0430, longer on weekends. But NHK canceled its
Spanish at 0400-0430 at Marchend, so no longer worth running this at
all? Could be transmitter/antenna problem; all other signals are
nominal at 0330: 5800, 5850, 5950, 7570, 7730, 7780, 9395, 9455, 9955.
At 0335 recheck 5985 at Bonaire SDR: not even a trace like there was
last night during WOR, exciter only? No mention, inquiries or
explanations about these on disgraced FB of WRMI, but here is some
news:

``WRMI Radio Miami International
Yesterday [April 1] at 7:37 PM · [EDT?]

Nuevo Programa en WRMI: Radio Free América Latina

La Organización por la Defensa de la Soberanía de las Repúblicas de
América Latina, a través de su agencia informativa ha creado Radio
Free América Latina.

Radio Free América Latina tiene como propósito informar a la audiencia
sobre hechos conocidos y menos conocidos de las acciones del Partido
Popular de China sobre América Latina en los aspectos económicos y
políticos. Esto, con el fin de alertar de manera temprana a nuestras
naciones sobre las posibles consecuencias sobre las soberanías en un
futuro no muy lejano.

Más recientemente también alertamos sobre la acciones del gobierno de
Rusia sobre América Latina, por medio de los gobiernos de Cuba,
Nicaragua y Venezuela, y de los peligros que corren naciones como
Colombia. Horario:
Jueves 8:00 pm Hora del Este (0000 UTC Viernes) en 9955 kHz
Sábado 0000 UTC en 7780 kHz``

So is it partly in English like its name?? And is the word Radio
pronounced as Spanish or English? Too late to hear it until next week
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, April 2 at 1435, no signal from this WRMI despite it
being Sabbath-service time at TOMBS. Possibly on, while propagation is
quite disturbed: 9395 & 9455 only JBA carriers. WWV reported:

``Solar-terrestrial indices for 01 April follow.
Solar flux 147 and estimated planetary A-index 17.
The estimated planetary K-index at 1500 UTC on 02 April was 2.

Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.
Solar radiation storms reaching the S1 level occurred.
Radio blackouts reaching the R1 level occurred.

Space weather for the next 24 hours is predicted to be moderate.
Solar radiation storms reaching the S1 level are expected.
Radio blackouts reaching the R2 level are likely.``

BTW, 10000 WWV at 2318 April 2 chopped off the prop info incomplete,
since like above it took over 45 seconds to read! And the WWVH
timechex at :45 must not be overridden (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3 CW, April 2 at 0600, single-letter beacon A every
10 seconds, quite audible despite storm and line noise. For the record
still active, and also several times recently I did not bother to log.
From anywhere but Quartzsite, Arizona (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0149 UT April 3

** BOTSWANA. 15610.307, April 1 at 1436, way off-frequency unknown
language but mentions Washington. VOA relay in `Kur` language
scheduled this hour only on ``15610``. That would be
Kinyarwanda/Kirundi. Last logged March 27 when it was not
off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 15110, April 1 at 1441, S6/S7 algo talk with
Doppler flutter: VOA Chinese via Tinang, Philippines, and/or CNR1
jammer; more Dfl here than on more transpolar 15030 India. K index at
1500 is 4 with storms and blackouts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 14980, 13530, 13130, 13020, April 1 at 1449, JBA carriers on
traditional ChiCom jammers of Sound of Hope; none in the 11 MHz area
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, 6060, 6100, 6165, April 1 at 0617, RHC English on 4
channels at once, unusual: 6000 S9+10/20; 6060 S9+10 with hum; 6100
S9+10; 6165 S9+20/30 but less modulated. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. Christos Rigas near Chicago forwards news that ERT got a
two-month reprieve for shortwave until the end of May. They may not
have got word at Avlis site, as no signal on 9420 into UTwente at
1809. Hope they didn`t hasten to blow the thing up. By 2318, some
Greekish music is JBA, maybe degraded propagation; but nothing at all
to Maryland. Or could really be Beijing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 11590, April 1 at 1443, S9/+10, one of best signals on band,
mentions ``Radyosu`` so must be Turkic language; contact info with TWR
and .hk, off at 1444.6*. It`s KTWR in Kazakh daily, 250 kW and 305
degrees, way offbeam thisaway. I wonder how many Kazax they have
converted to Protestants? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MONGOLIA. 12014.878, April 1 at 1447 algo talk at S5/S7, presumably
VOM`s offfrequency signature altho VOK in Russian is also sked on
12015. Aoki shows English at 1430-1500, really? Has been 1530-1600 as
in WRTH with Chinese at 1430-1500. BTW there is a very rare typo in
the page 486 heading, MOGOLIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PHILIPPINES. 9410, April 1 at 1500, VOA `YDD` S9/+10 closing and
1501*. Was an hour in Korean from Tinang, 21 degrees so aimed onwards
right at us. 9410 mainly a BBC frequency, taking a one-hour break at
1400, but not heard resuming from Oman at 1500 in English, nor
scheduled Cairo in Albanian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Friday April 1 at 2225, token English from REE
concluding part 1 of an Amy interview about tromp-l`oeil art in
America; best to Maryland SDR on this S American beam! As 17855 for
NAm is weaker and fadier, with 15520 backwards to ME even worse. BTW,
has anyone heard Justin Coe with an REE mailbag, or ``DX program``
this year? Late last year we thought they were showing up maybe
alternate weeks on Monday and/or Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 9585, April 1 at 1456 good signal S9/+10 in unknown
language. Aoki shows TWR starts at 1455 M-F in Mal, i.e. Malagasy, or
French on weekends. Azimuth is 64 degrees and could be long-path. I`m
dragging my feet on recognizing namechange to Eswatini. That`s fine in
Siswati, but this is English. BTW, starting at 1458 is CRI in Japanese
on 9585. Would they really collide? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, April 1 at 2216, VOT VG today, S9+40 to UTwente
with the COVID PSA. BTW, I just got my Moderna booster #2 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, April 1 at 0506 tune-in via Maryland remote,
Ukraine Radio 1 via WRMI is already in English `Ukraine: security
issues`, until 0512.6 back to UU. May not have started right at 0500
or 0501 this time. Here`s recording of the March 31 edition, the first
few minutes of which are included in WORLD OF RADIO 2132:
https://www.w4uvh.net/Ukraine_English_2022_0331_0500_WRMI_7730.mp3
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U A E. 15230.07 approx., April 1 at 1440, weak RHC 15230.00 has a
weak het. Aoki shows DW in Dari & Pashto 1400-1500 via UAE, one of the
most offfrequency-capable sites (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2132 monitoring: confirmed first
broadcasts, UT Friday April 1 at 0143 the 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG
direct; 7730-ex7780, S8/S9 and noisy at new Durango2 Mexico SDR.

About the next scheduled airing 0330 Friday on WRMI 5985, I wrote to
Jeff White at 0411:

Jeff, With NHK gone I was wondering if it would be worth it to keep
5985 on the air at all? I see it is still on your schedule. As usual
trying to confirm WOR at 0330 UT Friday, I could not hear anything at
several remotes in several direxions; but then [at 0341] I could
*barely* detect what sounded like my voice at the Bonaire remote -- as
if on air but very reduced power? Propagation may be disturbed, but
surely not that much. 5970 WEWN is still well audible everywhere; as
is your 5950 for example.

I have also noticed 4980 missing last night and again tonight. Hope
you are not having further transmitter or antenna problems. So
appreciate it if you can fill us in on what`s happening with these.
Glenn``

I would not be surprised if 5985 were running the exciter only. There
has been no reply; nor anything about these on disgraced FB. Another
check of 5985 direct at 0354 got a JBA carrier only; and 4980 off.

WOR 2132 also confirmed Friday April 1 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S8/S5 and
seems somewhat undermodulated.

Also confirmed Friday April 1 at 1815 on IRRS SW, 7290 via Bulgaria,
only S8/S9+5 into UTwente and no trace of 14580 second harmonic. Also
on AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9/+10 into nearby Noale SDR, but considerable
CCI in German from Romania`s minority service, as this has also moved
one UT hour earlier than in winter. We are usually atop and maybe will
improve as sunset latens.

Also confirmed Friday April 1 at 2030 on AM Italia, 1323, good S9+5
and no QRM by now but some occasional storm crashes into Noale SDR.
Previous unID program discussing how far-right is not always inversely
proportional to environmentalism; as usual chopped off incomplete at
2030 for ID, then WOR. The canned IDs continue to invite postal mail
to the Box in Milano, while publicity from Ron Norton specifies that
is no longer acceptable! Next:

** U S A. (7490v), April 2, 0001-0101, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW`. No
calls, no email, no music request which he keeps forgetting/promising,
just continuous conversation, often yelling over each other; and
reading some long articles. But first, discussing whose mike is on,
and being in underwear. UFO show, with Angel, is returning for at
least 4 weeks from April 5, Tuesdays at 8:30 pm [EDT = 0030 UT
Wednesdays].

0013 early datestamp as 1 of April YOOLF 2022, trimulcasting on 7490,
6160, 4790. Allan had never heard of Aspidistra, a 600 kW MW
transmitter used by the Brits to fool the Germans in WWII,
``Dreadnaught of the Ether``, from issue #6, 2020 of Nuts & Volts, by
Michael Banks. Sort of like the known 500 kW of WLW. Until 0033.

0037, survey shows AM & FM radio is still very popular in cars.
However, 39% of people don`t own any radio. Recommends an AM station
group in Florida, Boss Hog Radio. FCC is to add 15 positions to fight
pirate radio --- what a waste, but plug for pirates to go legal via
WBCQ. 0050 railing against war on genders: there are only two, and
that`s that! Was going to be Angela`s Angle: maybe next week. Boycott
Disneyland. 0059 prayer from Psalm 148, about praising that
self-centred deity. 0101 as always joining Hal Turner already in
regress (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6174.030, April 1 at 0611, JBA carrier, instantly
reminding me of R. Tawantinsuyo, Cuzco, Perú which has been inactive
for a long time, and was always offset about 6173.9. It`s still in
Aoki, of course, on 6174. And still in WRTH 2022 as OAX7C, 1 kW on
6173, and not daggered as inactive or irregular. It was last reported
by LOB in Brasil June 22, and by me remotedly by June 26, 2021.
Nothing found since (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17620, April 1 at 1434, JBA carrier is also the OSOB -
only signal on band --- and guess what, nonesuch in Aoki or HFCC; EiBi
A22 not yet available (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, March 31 at 0608, RHC in English, but chopped off air
at 0609*! Maybe one full hour from 0500 ran over. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, March 31 at 0611, RHC English S9+10 with humbuzz; 6100
S9+30/40 with less hum. No others still on air. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6125, March 31 at 0613, pulse jamming against nothing. R
Martí was on here a few seasons ago earlier in evening, but not now.

7355, 7375, 7405, 7435, March 31 at 0617, pulse jammings against
nothings, but each with a slightly different sound and strength, All
are present or former Martí frequencies, but not at this hour.
Something`s always incompetent, and with collateral damage from the
DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, March 31 at 0315, ERT with great music, continuous
except for IS & ID on hour and half-hour, past 0500. Last day on air
forever?? Still at 1905 via UTwente, VG S9+30/35 in Greek talk (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2132) And still music at 0105 April 1!!

** MEXICO. 6185, March 31 at 0614, unusual deadair instead of eclectic

** ALASKA. 6780-6815, approx. range of huge S9+20/30 HAARP noise,
active again March 30 at 0633. Also I detect an AM carrier amid on
6800 - is that part of HAARP? Nothing listed in Aoki. Others also
heard it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [non]. 9620, March 30 at 0623, melodic Qur`aning, S8-S9
from TDA via Issoudun, FRANCE. Amuse yourself with this:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A22&broadc=TDA
which mixes in numerous imaginary broadcasts covering 24 hours from
the still not completed own sites at Ourgla and Bechar, as in Arabic
only; while the real ISS listings include French and Aao.

That`s ``ao Algerian Saharan Arabic`` from huge language abbr. list
revised in December 2021, part of the A-22 zippack at HFCC; most of
them we have never heard of, let alone heard. There is no ao or aao in
EiBi`s less comprehensive yet extensive readme.txt language list
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, March 30 at 1434, LRA36 is on this
Wednesday, music and ID immediately, JBA into Brasília #1 SDR,
slightly better into Campo, where someone from Salem is already on it;
just noise at Pardinho. 1441 nominal schedule of ``miércoles 11 a
13``, = 14-16 UT; but already off by 1519 check (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9409.995, March 30 at 1544, R. Cairo terribly distorted with
humwhine into UTwente, new A22 frequency for 1500 Albanian hour,
ex-9440. Stays on past 1600 timesignal, music, 1604 Qur`an until cut
off at 1605*. Something`s always egregious in Egypt. Nothing from
Cairo is scheduled at 16-17. 9410 is a legacy BBC GOS/WS frequency,
once exclusively English from UK only. Now in use most of the day in
variety of languages and sites, English at 15-16 via Oman, but I could
not detect it under Cairo blob. USAGM and China are also on 9410 at
times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, March 30 at 0339-0416+, great music selexion from
VOG, tune after tune seguéd but no announcements; some instrumental,
some vocal, some Greek, some not, e.g. Cuban rhythm at 0349, no
pauses. 0401 Greek timecheck as ``UTC: tessera``, ID ``Edho Athina, I
Foni tis Hellados`` and back to music. Good reception direct thru
interior longwire during storm, with selective fading to brand this as
via ``the dynamic medium of international shortwave, between the AM
and FM bands``. On what may be ERT`s penultimate day on the air
forever. Is there anything definite about the proposed closure as of
March 31? Hasten to hear it while we can (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 MCW kHz, March 30 at 0640, whoopee! Enid`s own and
only ND beacon, EI at Woodring Airport, is back on after long absence.
Still at 1757, ID every 8 seconds. I`ve been checking for it every
night and sometimes day. Meanwhile, noise level permitting, OIN in
Oberlin KS has been heard on 341: and often also audible along with
EI.

Last time I logged EI was August 1, 2021; and first time reported
missing, August 9. Since then there have been a few scattered reports
by others alleging they heard it. Possibly sporadic, on air at some
time I was not checking. The comprehensive classaxe.com RNA list shows
EI 341 last logged 2021-10-18 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 1395, March 30 at 1836, the 18-19 UT R. Svoboda relay
in Russian via ARMENIA is still going at this check, good S7/S9 into
Tambov, Russia SDR, but with splash from adjacent 1386 stronger S9+15
relay of same via closer LITHUANIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, March 30 at 1911, the 19-20 UT R. Svoboda relay
via secret site, Armenia? is reconfirmed, S9+15 into Bryansk, Russia
SDR. No jamming but above some CCI? or rather voice-over translation
-- something which should be avoided on SW -- once established as such
for a few seconds. Still nothing about this in HFCC or Aoki. Left on
in background for rest of hour until 2000* and did not notice any
breaks (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed March 30 at 2200, token English from REE is VG
S9+30/40 for us; 15520 for ME S9/S5 off the back; 11940 S5/S7 for S
America; 11685 for Africa S3/S6. Amy Egan hosts, after news over to
Gil Carbajal with interviews about a revival produxion in Madrid of
Prokofiev`s opera `Fiery Angel`. It was suppressed by USSR and the
composer never witnessed a performance, how sad. He did rework many of
the themes into his Third Symphony. I`m not familiar with it and
wonder if and when The Met performed it? Wikipedia mentions no
performances in America, just western Europe except for a recording by
the Kirov Opera, Leningrad. Unfortunately, very little of the music is
heard during the REE interviews. I take this opportunity to urge that
despite Putin the Putrid, we must not reject Russian culture,
including the greatest composers ever. For me, no music is more moving
than that of Chaikofsky/Tschaikowsky --- whose treatment by other
despots was shameful (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 30 at 2204, nothing but RTTY audible direct, no
VOT English even switching to LSB only. Not checking UTwente until
2251, only S8/S9 of Chinese on 9830.004, i.e. CNR1 Beijing 572 site at
2025-0100, not a jammer. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, March 30 at 0500, Ukrainian Radio 1 via WRMI,
brief Ukrainian language opening, 0500.7 into English, `Ukraine:
Security Issues`, until 0506 back to UU. S9+15/20 into UTwente, but to
Russian SDRs: Khimki JBA, Izhevsk JBA; Pskov: better. So recording of
0000 broadcast now containing English bit, ex-0100, to play 5 hours
later is back in synch. There are no KiwiSDRs active in Ukraine, but
some nearby in Romania, Russia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2131 monitoring: zzz thru Wed Mar
30 at 1030 on WRMI 5850; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed Wednesday March 30 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490v. Monitoring direct
at first, not even a carrier can be detected in high storm noise
level: there is none nearby now, but plenty Blitz across Mississippi,
into LA/TN/KY; also scattered storms over NM mountains. So I have to
check via Maryland remote where it`s S7/S9 vs storm noise but OK on
webcast. An hour later at 2159 direct, JBA carrier detectable in storm
noise. Next:

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW [new]

Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, March 30 at 0625, KVOH still on with praise music in
English, S9+10, rather than 0600*. I guess they turn off the
transmitter whenever they get around to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** URUGUAY. 28485 USB, March 30 at 2209, CX7RM and stronger Juan,
CX4RT both on frequency making faraway contacts if not each other:

CX7RM Uruguay flag Uruguay

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-oceanic JBA MW carrier search, March 30 at 0635
UT: 846, 1044, 1215-2, 774: likely Kiritimati, Spain, UK, Spain resp.:
