Hauser
** CUBA. 13700, Oct 10 at 1533, JBA carrier, maybe Bauta left exciter
on? Usually off by 1500. Nothing else listed on 13700 except CNR13 in
Uyghur from Lingshi 725 site until 1400 - but I never notice any QRM
to RHC. Meanwhile 11760 is S9/+10 with sufficient modulation, 15140
S7/S8 JBM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 10 at 2147, no signal, no loss, of R. Cairo
into UTwente in English. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 10 at 0630, no signal from VON direct; Oct 10
at 1718 & 1744, no signal into Canary SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 17855, Mon Oct 10 at 2200, token English from REE,
S7/S9 into Maryland SDR, but better S7/9+10 on 11940 for S America;
15520 ME S5/S7; 11670 Af also S5/S7. After news, Justin will interview
someone about a music foundation; and intro a new series until Nov,
foreign movie reviews - but heard neither as I`m back to BBC Proms on
Sounds before they are all supposed to expire at 2259 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Oct 10 at 2158, VOT English is on today with IS,
2200 usual opening, somewhat undermodulated, S9+55 into UTwente; but
it`s the final hour for BBC Proms on Sounds (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE. I am now about a week behind in copying info from
`Ukraine: Security Issue`, and have decided not to resume. It is
rather depressing, and of course we are constantly bombarded by news
about the war otherwise. There was a rather lukewarm response to my
inquiry whether my reports were useful: from only three people. Best
approach if you are interested, is to devote no more than 9 minutes a
day to these yourself, via:
http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/ua_security_issue
Maybe WRMI will eventually resume SWing them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2159 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
October 9 from 2000:35 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, S9/+15
into nearby Noale SDR, atop medium SAH and musiCCI; following DJ show
for IRRS ``south of the Alps``, 2000 IRRS promo.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 10 at 0030 on WRMI 5950, S8/9+10 into
Maryland SDR; 7780 still not restored.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 10 at 0300 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160
minus 64 Hz = 6159.936, S7/S8 into Maryland SDR. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI *5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

*WRMI frequencies not yet reactivated, and may be considerable delay.
At those scheduled times, check all other active WRMI frequencies in
case there have been a schedule switch, at least temporarily.

** U S A. WRMI: Hurricane Restoration Update: [FB, c. 16 UT Oct 10]
``We have hit a snag in our transmission line repair effort. The
hydraulic system on our truck that lifts the telephone poles up has
stopped working, so our facility manager Pat (who is also a good
mechanic) is repairing that now. When that is finished, we will
continue with the repair of the antenna transmission lines. Rain is
also forecast, so we're running against time.``

``Llily Zichi : If it CAN be fixed, I’m confident Pat can do it.
Unfortunately, that truck is getting old. Maybe that’s a good thing
though. Old stuff CAN be fixed. Look at all the 1950s Detroit iron
running around the streets of Havana! The combo of old tech and
diligent mechanics can’t be beat! 😁``

Sent: Monday, October 10, 2022, 06:54:08 PM GMT+1
Subject: WRMI 7730 kHz on air

Ladies and Gentlemen: Today at 1700 UTC we were able to get 7730 kHz
back on the air. It will be on 24 hours per day until further notice.
It is on low power at this point; we can't operate it at high power
yet. But at least it's back on the air.

Meantime, the hydraulic lift on our line truck has malfunctioned and
we have to get that repaired before we can continue the repair of the
transmission lines. We are working on that as I write this. Jeff
White, General Manager`` (direct, via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

7730, Oct 10 at 1926, JBA carrier into Athens GA SDR. Had been on a 44
degree antenna, unreparable, so what azimuth now? (gh)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 10 at 0630, RV with music, S6/S8. Notably the
OSOB = only broadcast signal on band - if one define 41 m as 7200-7300
only.

11835, Oct 10 at 0701, talk in presumed Bislama, S8/9+10, having just
switched to 3945 in order to occupy this clear 3rd harmonic spot; zzz,
7890 = X2 not checked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 15565, Oct 10 at 1538, Afro/Asian? talk, S7/S9 so one of
better signals on band. Keyword ``Francesco`` so it`s an
Italian-influenced language, i.e. Ethiopian. Yes: 1530-1600 is VR in
Amharic, direct from SMG site putting more signal than it should, off
the back; rather than long-path, I think; no echo (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. 28370 USB, Oct 8 at 2216, VK3CWB, Moz, ``Mose``, says he
is in NW Victoria, contacting a WA- station. QRZ.com:
VK3CWB Australia flag Australia
Maurie "MOZ" MILANI
PO BOX 2742
MILDURA, VIC. 3502
Australia
Lots of info here including laments for increasing lack of properating
etiquette on CW:
https://www.qrz.com/db/VK3CWB

28397 USB, Oct 8 at 2218, VK4VO - I thought he said VK2VO, but that`s
another guy really in NSW with nothing about Qsld, while the one I
hear says he`s N of Brisbane on the Gold Coast, i.e.:

VK4VO Australia flag Australia
SHAUN STODDART
18 Cannon Place
Kooralbyn QLD 4285
Australia
``Ham radio is my main passion and also surfing and as I live not too
far from the Gold Coast in SE Queensland`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BELIZE. 28405 USB, Oct 8 at 2219, British accent running 400 watts
from San Ignacio, near the Mexican border, but fails to ID at two
cambios before I move on. Says a community of Canadian snowbirds there
he often contacts when they are back home. Can`t be too many hams in
this place? QRZ.com shows eleven V31s there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. Stephen Luce, Houston TX, replies at 0129 UT October 9:
``Glenn, notes on two of your items: I have recently noticed Voz
Missionária drifting upwards again, between 9667 and 9668, but moments
ago it was around 9664.8``

It was missing at my last check; now Oct 9 at 0650, Brazuguese talk
rather than usual music, on 9664.859 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 530 kHz, Oct 9 at 0706 UT, South Asian talk and song, no
sign of CUBA, off? Surely CHLO Brampton [Toronto], 250 watt
``Multi-Cultural`` ethnic format. Look at all the blank blox on their
sked:
https://am530.ca/schedule/
including now at 3 am Sunday. Otherwise mostly Hindi or Punjabi except
for bits in Filipino, Spanish, Italian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Oct 9 at 0655, the only RHC during jazz show on English
service, S9+20. At 0700, Esperanto is starting as clueless hostess
claims it`s at 0800 Sundays on 6100; and 1600 on 11760; also heard at
1508 on 15140 S9 and 11760 S9+10 undermodulated. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. The other side:

Emigration --- The exodus from Cuba will aggravate hunger and hamper
reconstruction --- 'This many Cubans have never emigrated in such a
short time span, and this should be considered a record on the
continent.'
Roberto Álvarez Quiñones, Miami 03 Oct 2022 - 16:11 CEST

Cubans awaiting a transit visa in front of the Panamanian Embassy in
Havana, March 2022. EFE [caption]

"El último, que apague la farola del Morro" ("Whoever’s the last one
to leave, please turn off the lamp in the Morro lighthouse.") This was
a popular phrase in Cuba that I heard many times in Havana in the
early 90s, after Castroism's weaning from its Soviet nurse, which had
just died of natural causes.

The phrase, typical of Cuban wit, arose in the face of the flood of
Cubans abandoning the country due to the privations of the "Special
Period." Today, more than 30 years later, the expression is timelier
than ever in the 63 years of Castroist dictatorship.

In August of 2022 alone, 20,000 Cuban immigrants arrived in the United
States illegally, an average of 645 daily. In just 31 days the number
of Cubans arrived that can emigrate to the neighboring country
annually with passport visas under the agreement between Washington
and Havana...

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 8 at 2237, R. Cairo extremely distorted
presumed English, total failure but at S9+35 signal into UTwente, not
what counts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Oct 9 at 0635, no JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, as typically silent Sunday nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, Oct 9 at *1500, V of Martyrs/Korea, secret
site, sign-on in English for Maldives, by 1501 immediately into
Dhivehi, S9/+20 compared to simulmyanmarianese on 11825 only S7/S9
which is admittedly KNX Kununurra, Australia, HCJB/RBA (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 9 at 0637, no signal from VON direct.

7255-, Oct 9 at 1742, JBA signal into Alicante, Spain SDR as Canary is
in use by its ham, -67v Hz offset which points to VON as on 7254.933v,
its typical offset. Not even that at 1854 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Saturday evening primetime, and no pirates 6.9+ MHz
except a 6920 JBA carrier -- but there`s a good S9 signal on 6880 USB
at 0053 UT Sunday October 9, pirate music but breaks at 0055, back at
0056; 0100 ID and song `*ock*ucking Ball`; 0102 Radio 48 ID and
reports to radio48@protonmail.com - I guess, with numbers in it. 0103
NORML PSA by Willie Nelson, then anti-drug PSA. 0105 Radio 48. 0113 &
again 0116, double ID for Radio 48, then Mix Radio International. 0121
sirens SFX and M-R-I-. 0123 song `Dirty Old Boogie`. 0126 Radio Free
-something- and M-R-I- IDs. Then I find another pirate, stay on it for
a while. Lots more 6880 logs as early as 2212 Oct 8, no SSTV:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,102923.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 LSB, Oct 9 at 0130, pirate music I can`t get to
resolve circa 6928 USB until I try LSB! Then fake gospel huxter
entreaty; 0134 DJ in Spanish and English, song in Spanish about
Maracaibo. 0137 fake ad by FB player who reduced to 300 lb tnx to some
video program available on Beta and VHS formats; another frenetic song
in Spanish. 0142 says myteaquinn knows what station this is; 0144
hi-pitched repeating tune like on a fife but eventually morphs into a
song. 0151 some more of that and weakening to S5. Outhouse Radio,
thread started by myteaquinn:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,102941.0.html
but no SSTV imagery (Glenn Hausere, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920 AM, Oct 9 at 0107 JBA carrier; 0634, JBA,
suspect R. Pushka [Rifle], weak but long-hours Russian? ethnic pirate,
like here, before and after:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,102946.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 9830.001, Oct 8 at 2220 JBA carrier direct, suspect
no VOT; and at 2238 into UTwente, where measured, only weak Chinese at
S7. Another no-show by TRT; something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 341 MCW kHz, Oct 9 at 0642 UT, OIN, 25 watt ND beacon at
OberlIN KS, under and alternating with local EI, EnId; and this time
no sign of the other nearby 341, DNI Denison TX. Suspected OIN had
been off the air, last logged Aug 11. Oberlin in NW corner of Kansas;
once shared a TV channel with McCook, Nebraska, just up US 83 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 9 at 1511, JBA CW vs CODAR, too weak to copy a
single letter, but likely HIFER beacon in CA, K6FRC, allegedly only
1.8 milliwatts - despite this, the most likely one to be heard on this
ISM band despite many others listed. Last definite log was Sept 2 and
before that, June 27. And despite random bandscans at many other
hours, never traced much earlier nor later than 1500 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Another check for 10m beacons Oct 8 at 2205-2217
finds several of exactly same ones logged 24 hours ago q.v. from New
England: WA1LAD/B, W1DLO/B, N1ME/B, W1VCM/B; and outliers from BC,
VE7MTY/B; and a Mexican relog from Sept 24, XE1RCS/B. And a new one:

28245, Oct 8 at 2211, just K1RGO/B repeating slowly:
28.245 K1RGO I EAST HAVEN, CONNECTICUT # 2W, NE/SW DIPOLE New 22

K1RGO USA flag USA
Salvatore J DeFrancesco, K1RGO

``I also run a 2 watt 10 meter Beacon, K1RGO/B on 28.245 MHz``

Just before the beacon check I found the extended 27 MHz CBand hopping
with Spanish, one mentioning México (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2159 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
October 8 at 1928 already underway on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+19 into
nearby SDR, about 11 minutes into so started early circa 1917.

Also confirmed UT Sunday October 10 underway at 0319, on WA0RCR, 1860
AM, S9+15 into nearby already in progress until 0339 so started early
circa 0310. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

** U S A. ``For WRMI on 9455: Around 1100 UT October 7 I found it with
very strong splatter up to 50 kHz below the fundamental, with
additional traces down as low as 9360. Have not checked since then.
Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas``

9455 is OFF again at 0652 Oct 9 while 9395 & 9955 are S9+20, hope
because of the splatter problem, still off at 1437. Nothing about this
yet on WRMI`s FB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, Oct 9 at 0655, another WRMI reactivated, and initially
at least on expanded schedule, now TOMBS // 5800 & 9955.
5010 supposed to last until 1600 today but not reconfirmed.

5800, S9+10/20 also vs Cuban pulse jamming due to counterproductive
decision to put R. República on it for one hour, earlier (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN. 15509.780, Oct 9 at 1504, S8/S9 of talk with flutter
stix out: I bet it`s Tashkent site in systemic offfrequenciness. Yes:
EiBi and Aoki show IBRA Media/Radio Ibrahim in Bengali daily 1500-1530
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 9 at 0638, R. Vanuatu, music at S8/S9.

11835, Oct 9 at 0702, now RV has switched to the harmonicizer 3945
where nothing is audible, but S5/S8 of talk here on X3, and unlike
last night, only one carrier. Also JBA carrier on X2 = 7890; nothing
on X4 = 15780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic carriers: Oct 9 at 0635 without
Kiritimati on 846, I do have traces on 774, 747, 711: likely Spain,
Canary, Morocco (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3240, Oct 9 at 0659 UT, JBA carrier. Aoki has no SWBC;
EiBi only TWR Swaziland twice a week at 1630-1645. Suspect harmonic
from MW 1620, 1080, 810, 648 or 540 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17810, Oct 9 at 1502-1503* open carrier at S8/S9, 2nd
SSOB below only 17855 Spain; with heavy flutter both vertically in
strength, horizontally Doppler in frequency. Not a 1500* overrun as
EiBi & Aoki show nothing on 17810 between 1200 and 0155; elsewhen used
by BBC Oman, RFA Tinian and ChiCom jamming, and Japan, maybe one of
them testing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Oct 8 start listening via Argentine
remote circa 1440 but nothing until cuts on during song at *1449; 1456
canned standard sign-on, multilingual including English that this is
in Spanish, 1457 staff names, 1458 themesong, 1502 recitation, but
gone by 1505 already. It was very weak from the start and during my
breakfast did not have a chance to fish for better signal via other
SDRs, so at first thought it might have been fade-out or hit by SID;
but nothing further following hour. Another bust.

WWV reported: ``Geophysical Alert Message
Solar-terrestrial indices for 07 October follow.
Solar flux 160 and estimated planetary A-index 15.
The estimated planetary K-index at 1500 UTC on 08 October was 3.
No space weather storms were observed for the past 24 hours.
Space weather for the next 24 hours is predicted to be minor.
Radio blackouts reaching the R1 level are likely.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. Monthly `Calling All Radio Nutzzz` on Unique Radio
webcast, from 1800 Sat Oct 8: 1811, Jen in Denver starts a segment on
language recognition. It`s the late Dr Richard E Wood, but he is never
credited! About distinguishing among the Romance languages, as he
perfectly pronounces words likely to be heard in IDs. 1818 change to
another voice introducing longer examples of French, Italian,
Rumanian, Portuguese, until 1822, on to GB with recordings of radio
from Ivory Coast. From 1835 or so they are paging thru NASWA FRENDX of
exactly 50 years ago, reminiscing about all the SW stations which no
longer exist. CARN is monthly, until 2100 via
http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/index.html?sid=1
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 9665v, Oct 8 at 0630, unusually NO signal from
RVM; bot some weak music on 9670, probably Channel 292, Germany (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5800, Oct 8 at 0336, WRMI reactivated with Spanish,
presumed R. República as scheduled, with heavy jamming at about equal
level here. Now all other hours on 5800 are subject to jamming. At
least that`s not a WOR frequency; jamming on 9955 is bad enough (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FINLAND [and non]. Sat Oct 8 is a date for almost-monthly
Scandinavian Weekend Radio; no chance of hearing its 100 watts direct,
but I have another go at it via UTwente, at 1608, without checking
first which of its two alternate frequencies on each band now be
scheduled: 5980 weak in English about Mongolia, must be New Zealand.
6170 weak music, heavy ACI de 6165 Chinese music. 11690 VG French from
CGTN Kashgar. 11720 weak music, Vietnam sked, with heavy ACI from
11725 Chinese music, i.e. CGTN German service from Site-x. At 1614,
UTwente measures 6169.992 at S7. Sked at
http://www.swradio.net/schedule.htm
shows the pair at 15-17 are 6170, 11720, so maybe I`ve really heard
SWR on one or both.

Earlier in the British DX Club: ``Fair signal of SWR, Finland at 0635
UT tune in on 11690, actually 11689.91 kHz with their monthly
broadcast. Some deep fades SIO 343. Russ Cummings, SDRplay RSPdx,18m
long wire, North Ferriby, East Yorkshire, UK``

Paul Watson at 1648: ``Scandinavian Weekend Radio being heard on 5800
via unknown relay, probably a Dutch pirate. Strong signal``.

24-hour transmission to end at 21 UT. From first? Saturday in
November, should be 22 UT Fri to 22 UT Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Oct 8 at 0703, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati;
no other 9/kHz splits in quick scan of longer MW (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 8 at *0637, VON S9/+10 but JBM. I had just
checked Vanuatu 7260 at 0636, when VON was NOT on adjacently (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, Oct 7 at 2034 UT, PN, ND beacon at PoNca
City is OFF again; still off circa 0700 Oct 8. Had only come back Oct
4 after previous absence from at least Aug 23. And so it goes, and
comes. Another check Oct 8 at 1753: 515 PN still off; still ON: 350
RG, 341 EI, 255 SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 2097.3 CW, Oct 8 at 0716 UT, single-letter beacon A, JBA
every few seconds. First time heard this `season`, as occasional chex
during summer confronted too hi noise level, so I wondered if it were
still on air. From anywhere in SW desert, except Quartzsite AZ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4095 CW, Oct 8 at 0717, immediately upon tune-in, DW and
sweeps upward, the Desert Whooper beacon, JBA. Last heard Aug 21 when
could not hear A on 2097.3, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2159 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday October 8 at 0400 on WRMI Radio Angela, 5130 minus 24 Hz =
5129.976 into Maryland SDR, S9/+10.

Also confirmed Saturday October 8 at 1600, the first WRN airing,

** U S A. 9455, Oct 8 at 0631, this reactivated WRMI also resumes its
previous problem before it was Ianned: splatter, now audible down to
9405 at least, and even traces beyond the other WRMI 9395, to 9350 or
so. Less of that upward to about 9470 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WRMI updates: On FB circa 22 UT Oct 7: ``No new frequencies
are on the air today, but we were able to make progress on some of the
transmission line restoration. We hope to be able to announce another
frequency back on tomorrow. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, 5800, 5950, 9395,
9455 and 9955 kHz are running 24 hours per day.``

Direct from Jeff at 1537 UT Oct 8: ``Subject: 5010 kHz is back ---
Friends, we have finished work on the 5010 kHz antenna, so it will
come on at its usual time of 0000 UT this evening with its regular
programming. We are continuing to work on other transmission lines
today, but we don't expect to have any other frequencies back in
operation today. We now have six of our previous 12 frequencies on the
air with their normal schedules or with 24-hour operation. Jeff White,
General Manager, WRMI Radio Miami International``

On FB circa 16 UT Oct 8: ``OK, folks, our engineers have finished the
work on 5010 kHz and have tested it. It will come back on the air at
its normal time of 0000 UT this evening (or possibly sooner) and will
run through the night to 1600 UT tomorrow (October 9). We have already
started work on two more frequencies which will take some time to
reestablish, so they will not be on the air today. But 5010 is back,
alongside 5800, 5950, 9395, 9455 and 9955 kHz. Thanks for all of your
good wishes and support.`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 8 at 0636, R. Vanuatu, S7/S8 with flutter,
better than usual direct, some music. At 0707 after their switch to
3945, X2 = 7890 is JBA, and X3 = 11835 is only S4/S6 with music, but
seems to be QRM from a second carrier, 11835.5v but could be a local
birdie. Have not noticed any such when RV was absent. EiBi and Aoki
both fail to show RV on 11835, nor anything else, ever. HFCC likewise.
Contrast Ron Howard`s report a bit later:

``New happenings for Radio Vanuatu? Oct 8, Marshall Reel, at 0747 UT,
was having decent reception on RV's 3rd harmonic of 11835 (
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TATj_Y_zf6s ).
But when I randomly listened to RV from 0910 till off after the
National Anthem at 1106* UT, I had no trace at all of RV on 11835
(nothing there the whole time!). Fundamental frequency of 3945 was
unusable (only a carrier) and nothing on 4th harmonic of 15780. So
only the 2nd harmonic on 7890 was heard with poor to fair reception. I
find it hard to believe I was unable to get any 11835 signal, as
normally that is fairly good. Needs more monitoring! Ron, Asilomar
State Beach, Calif. (near Monterey), Etón E1, external antenna: 100

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Oct 7 at 1440 past 1600, monitoring for
LRA36 via Argentine remote, in case of a Friday make-good after AWOL
Wednesday, but nothing; nor did Gary Pence hear it. Better luck on
Saturday? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. Just before bedtime Oct 7, neighborhood power
failure at 0610 UT! Soon notified OG&E, which restored it at 0733,
cause unknown, fried squirrel? So meanwhile, I take the opportunity to
DX during a sesquihour of no local powerline noise, quite a treat, tho
my main rx are not set up for battery power, seldom needed. So I`m on
the DX-398, altazimuth wrist mount. I don`t expect anything
superlative, but what else is there to do? See also NICARAGUA.

At 0641 on 650, I again have talk in English with WSM nulled.
Previously suspected KGAB Wyoming. All I can catch is phone-in number
877-332-8255. Reversely uplooking phone numbers is often unproductive,
but this goes right to: CKOM! in Saskatoon. Guess what: all its night
power is supposed to go north, only a minor lobe south on day pattern,
per NRC Book: Yet another Canadian invading American airspace on AM.
It`s U4 10/10 kW. Radio-locator claims CKOM is direxional only at
night. Last logged here Oct 28, 2018 and Sept 7, 2017.

Now making a `fast SAH` with WSM. IIRC, WSM was once known as the one
station always sticking to precise frequency, but MWOffsets shows it
on 650.0115 as of a year ago, ranging 649.9999 to 650.013. And CKOM:
649.9992, down to 649.9988-, as of 2020y. That means a nominal
separation of 12.3 Hz or maximum 14.2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 870, Oct 7 at 0649, ``wobbler`` carrier QRMing WWL,
roughly also NW/SE, a typical Cuban defect. WRTH shows three R. Reloj
outlets of, 10, 10 and 1 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.994, Oct 7 at 2123 check, no signal today from R. Cairo
into UTwente. Something`s amiss at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NICARAGUA. 720, Oct 7 at 0635, nulling WGN, I hear recitation of
Lord`s Prayer in Spanish. Surely it`s the closest overtly RCC Latin,
R. Católica in Managua, so SS on 720 isn`t necessarily KSAH, Cuba, or
Mexico, all secular. WRTH shows YNA3RC with 25 kW but at 1000-0430.
During local power blackout, see CANADA, on DX-398, but should be
audible anyway. Probably easiest Nickie, not unusually reported from
USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Oct 7 at 2243, S9+45/50 into UTwente, VOT English
with some hum, much preferable to sometimes squeal, with music, and
2250 the 2-minute multilingual ID filler spiel reel much later in hour
than usual, 2252 sign-off to 2253 fragment of IS and off* Something`s
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Sporadic E MUF commonly in the 70s MHz, but not
above 88; plenty to bounce beacons on 28, checking October 7 at
2015-2033 UT. Except for BC and Veracruz outliers, all from New
England in the 1400-1600 mile range, so are they long Es, double-hop,
or short F2 propagation?

One of these logs leads me to a better updated beacon listing than
WJ5O which stopped in 2016y but is still up, so I quote WI5V from now
on. Precise frequencies as listed rather than measured, but close
enough; next line after my logs is the WI5V info; and after that,
stuff from individual QRZ.com pages.

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2159 monitoring: due to damage
disruption at WRMI, just in case, I check active frequencies at
previously scheduled times, such as 0130 UT Friday October 7, despite
5850 & 7730 transmitters still silent - even tho in this case, WOR was
cancelled two weeks ago: nope.

However at 0343 UT Friday October 7, I find WOR in progress on 9455,
i.e. as had been scheduled at 0330 on another silent frequency, 7780.
Skedgrid still shows Supreme Master TV during this hour on 9455. No
telling what will happen by next week.

However, a Radio World article about WRMI includes this bit of
significant new info: “So far we have three antennas that are probably
destroyed beyond repair: one to Europe, one to Africa and one to
Central America and the South Pacific.” --- so that implies these
frequencies are not coming back soon unless on some other antennas:
15770 and/or 7730 to Europe; 21525 to Africa; 7780 to Central America.
7780 affects several WOR broadcasts.

Also confirmed Friday October 7 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S6/S8 direct, no
jamming heard, but undermodulated:

Also confirmed Friday October 7 from 1815.25 on IRRS SW via BULGARIA,
7290, S7/S9 into UTwente but not audible on x2 = 14580; and also via
AM Italia, as if taking my advice, this week active on 918 kHz, VG, no
QRM, S9+25 into nearby Noale SDR, while // 1323 is buried by Romania
in German; and nothing on LW 207. WOR heard to completion 1844+.

Tuning in earlier at 1758, 918 with inconsequential chat on `Off the
Hook` show from WUSB on LINY, but chopped off just before 1800: ``IRRS
SW Signing-on``, and `Feature Story News`, from Washington - not
``Free Speech News`` as someone guessed; as always, 7290 cuts on late,
JIP just before 1801; 1803 `Spotlite` segment; 1805 IRRS ID, rock
music fill to 1815 IRRS ID again, and then WOR.

After WOR at 1844 a few words promoting? Sea Shepherd, cut to IRRS ID,
1845 music; 1853 check it`s Irish tunes, 1854 DJ and more such music.
7290 cuts off air at 1857* just as heavy ACI from 7295 CGTN English
starts. Music continues on 918 until 1900 IRRS SW signing ``off``, QSL
reports to otherwise denied P O Box in Milano, Verdi theme, to 1903.5
ID. Feed from Noale keeps cutting out. Enough of that - until 2030.

Also confirmed Friday October 7 at 2044 the 2030 on AM Italia, both
918 kHz, S9+22 into Noale SDR; and 1323, S9/+12 with fast SAH and some
CCI nowhere near as bad as at 1815 from Romania. Next:

** U S A. 5800, Fri Oct 7 at 0347, the fifth WRMI transmitter back on
air, in Spanish, presumed the new R. República hour three nights a
week on WRMI itself in addition to from 0100 on 9490 via France. And
5800 is being jammed, as expected as I already heard jamming against
nothing there at a later hour; here anyway, RR/WRMI is well atop. Once
anything is jammed on a frequency, the Cubans will let it run much
longer, causing collateral damage, until now restricted to only one
WRMI frequency with exile broadcasts, 9955.

5800 was already on at 0130 when I heard the V of Mongolia relay
starting. And for now extended beyond nominal 0400* again, still on at
0726 with Brother HyStairical about the imminent doom of Y2K! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), Oct 7 at 2255 tuning the end of WBCQ webcast with
special airing of `Extension 7490` as publicized. Sean was going to
talk about radio, which I wanted to hear, and play music requests. I
was out and set up to record from 2200 but it failed. I do hear him
about to play three more tunes, but only has time for one, or part of
one, as 2258 time is running out, and he must get off shortly since,
admiringly and deferentially, he says what Hal Turner has to say will
be much more important. HT won`t be for two more hours tonight but the
original airing on Oct 4 was just before HT. Anyhow this episode will
repeat next Tuesday and apparently same for the rest of October, so
will have more chances to hear it.

Uncle Bill Tilford took me to task for my remark about him and Hal
Turner, so I asked, ``Bill, why be so quarrelsome?`` - and his reply:

``That's a fair and reasonable question, especially since this isn't
one of my productions, nor is it a show "under my wing".

But it IS a relatively new show, and like all new shows in shortwave,
be they music, cooking or whatever, it deserves a more serious
treatment that what was given here, especially since like some other
shows, it appears to be going through the weird fraternity hazing
ritual that the engineering and support staff in Monticello sometimes
put new programs through on the schedule on 7490 and 6160.

Intentionally or unintentionally, you may give readers the impression
that this show is another helping of political or social polemic and
can be dismissed as such, and while you are welcome to dislike his
song choices or stories or all of the above, he (like any other new
host) deserves a less dismissive introduction than what he
received.

Back when WBCQ was doing multiprogram specials on all channels, I
thanked Overcomer on air a couple of times for giving up their regular
hour to help make the simulcast possible (no, I did NOT hail Brother
Stair as the prophet in so doing). Would you have taken me to task
about having said something nice to TOM for letting us have their
time?``

And then I got this from Sean Welsh himself:

``Hi Glenn, As a long time listener to WOR, I am quite concerned that
you may need some clarification of a comment I made on my show
"Extension 7490", according to a post that was relayed to me by a few
listeners of my show.

If you had listened to the entire show, you might have discovered that
my show is mainly humour, music and radio and weird true life stories
and sarcasm.

My tail end "endorsement" of Mr. Turner was simply that - sarcasm. I
think it was quite clear when I said at the end of my show "....I'll
be on next month unless everything that Hal Turner says comes true,
then I won't be here".

My show contains doesn't contain [sic] any political matter - as a
matter of fact, if I you had listened to the first 15 minutes of the
show, I relayed a story concerning my encounter with a negative ham
radio operator from Germany and his political views and how I played
the "What The World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love / Abraham Martin and
John" by Tom Clay to contra that.

I trust that you'll tune into a full hour next time so you may
understand fully the concept of the show. 73 Sean Welsh``

So there you have it: I completely missed the sarcasm, and despite my
best efforts could not hear the entire show this time. Now Sean has
just joined the WOR iogroup so our contact should improve.

`AAAWWW` starting on same at 0000 UT October 8 is recognized as rerun
of last week, slipping up theme at the start, etc., so never mind
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Cubans are once again taking to the streets to protest and make
demands of the Government, as their living conditions have
deteriorated significantly in recent days, and this is not because of
the hurricane that recently affected the western provinces.

All of Cuba is languishing without electricity and, therefore, in a

** U S A. 9955, 9455, 9395, 5950, Oct 6 at 0650, WRMI active on these
four only; and once again 9455 is splattering downward at least to
9415. At 1456, 9955 is S7/S8 quite undermodulated, and 9395, 9455 are
not sufficiently mod either. Next up: 5800, from Jeff White at 1442:

``Dear Friends, Colleagues and Clients of WRMI: I am happy to report
that our frequency of 5800 kHz is operational once again. It will come
back on the air at its regular airtime today [22-04 UT], and possibly
earlier. So now we have five frequencies operating again: 5800, 5950,
9395, 9455 and 9955 kHz. We continue to work on getting the other
frequencies back up. Thank you for all of your messages of support as
we make repairs from the damage caused by Hurricane Ian. Jeff White,
General Manager`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2159)

** U S A. 9330v, Oct 6 at 0651, WBCQ with country song, strange for
WLCR until listening to the repeating lyrix: ``There`s a dome over us;
There was no Big Bang; Space is a farce; No astronauts in space``,
i.e. the wacko dogma of World`s Last Chance Radio. 0655 cut to
menacing theme and British accent, that the End Is Near (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, Thu Oct 6 at 0640, WWCR-4 is off again unlike last
night, a mistake then? Also deprives us of leapfrog over 5935 to 5980
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 6 at 0645, no RV, nor any carrier on former
harmonix 7890, 7932, 8620, 11835. Barely awake at 0701, still no
11835. There they go again. Gary Pence agrees nothing from them this
date (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2159)
