Sigh --- correxion, 15730, not 17530; fixed:

** CUBA. 15730, Aug 15 at 0010, RHC S8/S9+25 but suptorted in French,
not // 5040 in Kriyol. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

** AFGHANISTAN [and non]. UT Sat Aug 14 at 2028, Jose Jacob of DX
India asked me, ``Afghanistan not heard on 1107 kHz?`` I reply:

``Hi Jose, You are asking me? I have no reports yet one way or
another. You should be in a better position to hear it, but we can
start checking remotes for this and others? Majors on 1296, 621 kHz of
course. In WRTH I see a few others altho mostly FM: 1305 Kandahar, 945
Sharana [much lower powered] are the only ones I see in a quick scan
of page 66. However, if on the air, it may be hard for us to tell
which side control them. WRTH shows sked of RTA on 400 kW 1107 near
Kabul is 0030-1930 UT. The closest Kiwis are New Delhi and Kuwait. No
signal when I check Delhi now at 2240 UT. Kabul sunrise/sunset times
currently 0044/1411 UT. 73, Glenn`` --- Mauno Ritola, Finland reply at
2247:

``All 1296, 1107 and 621 kHz were heard tonight. Please check via
Karelia MW DX after 0030, I'll leave the best antenna for that
direction on: http://185.89.55.189:8073/ 73, Mauno`` -- I reply:

``Spanish dominates 1107 on Mauno`s, RNE5 synchos plus couple others.
More different Spanish on 1296 and 621. New Delhi has horrible noise
level but Qur`an audible under it at 0031-0034+. 1296 JBA talk; 621
greater noise only. Surely the Taliban will broadcast Qur`an, but
presumably the doomed corrupt government has been doing so too,
violating Separation of Mosque and State``.

As Kabul is in process of falling, remotes checked again from 1455 UT
Aug 15, which is prime evening time in Afgh. Via New Delhi, 1107 is on
at S9+20, but with fadeouts, mostly talk. But a bit of music at 1458,
so must not be Taliban-controlled just yet. 1530 UT = top of hour
20:00 local, finally hear a woman`s voice with music, so must not be
Talibanic yet. Some slight QRM: beware, in the region are also a 50 kW
in Iran, a 20 kW in India, and of course some Chinese.

1296 kHz, the 400 kW USAGM transmitter at same site as 1107 near
Kabul, of Pol-e-Charkhi for R. Azadi and VOA Ashna Radio, is also on
air at 1455 with brief English clips being translated.

Mauno Ritola, Finland, reported at 0858 Aug 15: ``1106.98 kHz started
at some time before 0030 and at 0029 I hear a tentative Anthem on my
recording. 1296 kHz may have started a bit late and 621 kHz starts at
0100, already in daylight. They will be easier to check in the
evening: 1296 -1730*, 1107 -1930* and 621 -1901*``

At 1538 I am not hearing anything on 1107 or 1296 via Mauno`s Karelia
SDR: maybe still too early before full darkness.

The only SW frequency of R. Afghanistan, 6100, has long been inactive,
but worth eventual checking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11510-11550 approx., Aug 15 at 0015, extremely distorted
spurblob of music, as I`m all set to pin it on RHC. But then I can
recognize talk in Brazuguese intonation, and in fact the modulation
matches 11780 even with an ID for RNA at 0017 and for many other Rs.
Nacionais, mostly on FM. Centered about 11530, i.e. 250 kHz below the
fundamental. Not the first time 11780 has put out such spurs.
Registers only S2-S4 but sounds much louder. How about plus 250? Yes,
similar but weaker wideband noise centered about 12030. In fact for
some weeks I have been bothered by the upper, but suspected it could
be something local. Now it also matches 11780, which itself is S9/+20
with hum and suptorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 17530, Aug 15 at 0010, RHC S8/S9+25 but suptorted in French,
not // 5040 in Kriyol. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13710-13760 very approx., Aug 15 at 0012, splash range of RHC
13740, which itself is S9+35 and overmodulated/distorted. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, Aug 15 at 0014, RHC at S9+5 with humbuzz. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, Aug 15 at 0002, pop music at S2-S4, presumably
Channel 292 again, testing thisaway? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. At 0135 UT Sunday Aug 15, NOW, I remind the WOR iog of a
post 3 days ago from DX India:

``15th August 2021 (Sunday) 0135-0240 UTC (0705-0810 hrs IST)
All India Radio will live broadcast the running commentary in English
and Hindi on the Flag Hoisting and Prime Minister's address to the
nation to be held at Red Fort, New Delhi between 0135-0240 UTC
(0705-0810 hrs IST) on 15th August, 2021 on the following SW
frequencies.

English:
13710 Bengaluru 500 kW

Hindi:
9950 New Delhi 100 kW
11560 New Delhi 100 kW``

I`m hearing it well at S9+20/40 on 13710 via a non-India remote, but
with a bit of squeal. The W&M hosts in English also mention a live
video streaming URL once, I could not copy but find this one:
https://prasarbharati.gov.in/live-tv/

They were gushing about the magnificent ceremony, but even on the
`English` SW channel, the PM`s speech in Hindi from 0200 is *not*
being translated, nor on the TV feed. Audience members are starting to
fidget, as the morning heats up, trying to shade their heads. SW
coverage of the ceremony is supposed to finish at 0240 UT, but Modi
keeps going on and on and on well past 0300. I bet he`s pushing
Hindutva. Here`s just one article about that:

``How Modi Is Using Hinduism to Turn India Into an Autocracy
Modi’s Slide Toward Autocracy --- Using Hindutva ideology, India’s
leader is restyling the country as one with only the trappings of
democracy.
By Azeem Ibrahim
July 13, 2020, 12:11 PM

When Narendra Modi was elected prime minister in 2014, India reached a
crucial milestone for a postcolonial democracy: Modi became the first
leader since independence to command a lower house parliamentary
majority that did not belong to the Congress party of India’s founders
Mohandas Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. After 65 years, a dynastic
founding party was subsumed by new blood. But in the six years since
Modi won his first election, it has become clear that his style of
leadership poses an existential threat to the world’s largest
democracy. Through his wildly successful promotion of Hindutva
ideology, Modi is poised to remake India into a Russian-style “managed
democracy” — one retaining all the trappings of democracy while
operating as a de facto autocracy...``

https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/07/13/modi-india-hindutva-hindu-nationalism-autocracy/

13710 cuts off the air at 0319.5* while Modi is still orating, but
back on 3 minutes later. Modi finally finishes at 0331 after a solid
sesquihour! Then he walks thru the rank and file of the outspread
audience, all of whom stay seated and appear to be masked. Even after
finishing speaking, Modi is *never* masked, what a fine example! What
a strong, fearless man! BTW, India, tnx a lot for the Delta Variant!

The TV coverage at least finally seems to finish about 0340 as the SW
SDR has used up the 120 minutes it allowed me with reloads every 30
minutes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Aug 15 at 0616, JBA carrier. At this
hour seems can only be R. Kiribati, after sunset there; a sign of fall
conditions oncoming.

Only others on 9-kHz-step bandscan are two JBA carriers SAHing on 837,
however, likely remnants of Canary Islands/Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1210, Aug 15 at 0609 UT, dead air from
strongest signal, presumed KGYN; understation with C2CAM // but a few
seconds behind 1170 KFAQ, presumed WPHT Philadelphia (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U K. 9575, Aug 15 at 0000, open carrier goes to timesignal, preview
and 0001 BBC WS news with Sue Montgomery. Fair but could be so much
better if beamed our way. A mid-season change, per HFCC started 9
July, 250 kW, 78 degrees from Woofferton for one hour only (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 17560, Aug 15 at 0007, OSOB is a JBA carrier, could be
East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide? Maybe a jammer,
but HFCC shows USAGM in Chinese Mandarin, this hour only, 250 kW, 349
degrees from Tinang, PHILIPPINES (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2099 monitoring: confirmed on
WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, at approx. 2013-2042 Sat Aug 14, as I
recorded KB0FX SDR for later checking. Really late today after nominal
1930.

Also confirmed UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 5950, S9+32 into Knoxville SDR;
yes, #2099 as I am uploading new WORs now to System L.

Also confirmed UT Sunday from 0431 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, via nearby
SDR but with some storm crashes. Much later than nominal 0315, 75
minutes late while only 43 minutes late in the afternoon. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 9455, Aug 14 at 2359 check, and also at 1438 Aug 15, this
WRMI-5 is still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Aug 15 at 0039, WTWW-2 $ tereo webcast of
`Theater Organ Under The Arch`, playing ``Georgy Girl`` as this week`s
theme is ``things from girls``, including a thorganist who is blind
but that doesn`t stop her from handling all the keyboards, stops and
pedals. Ends at 0057; I missed the first part tracking Afghanistan and
me (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, Aug 15 at 1439, algo JBA, WTWW-1 not on this Sunday,
compared to S9+10 from neighbor 9980 WWCR. Rather National Unity Radio
via TAIWAN for Korea until 1458. But 1545 recheck now WTWW-1 is on
with PPPP; registered so could have started as early as 1400 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, Aug 14 at 2351 check, KLEY Wellington KS is still
reactivated, rock music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1329.1 kHz approx., JBA carrier/het against 1330s, Aug
15 at 0611. Nothing more than minus 17 Hz in mwoffsets (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15520, Aug 15 at 0008, S1-S4 open carrier; hardly any
19m signals besides Cuba. Nothing listed here; maybe SPAIN forgot to
turn this off at 2200* weekends, 2300* weekdays? No signals on other
REE frequencies now, nor should there be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat Aug 14 at 1422, 1453, no signal
from LRA36 into Brasil or Uruguay SDRs. Then we see this at 1327 to
the WOR iog: ``Manuel Méndez --- Hi Glenn, the LRA 36 staff has
posted, an hour ago, a new jpg whatsapp note announcing there will not
be program today Saturday due to the same reasons as last Wednesday.
Best 73,s`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 4975, Aug 14 at 0547, JBA carrier still detectable at
night, previously traced to Brasil with obligatory government hour, A
Voz do Brasil at 2200; but nothing further heard about it such as an
ID for one of the three ex-4975s known (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13130, Aug 14 at 1354 CNR1 jammer with Chinese; only othrs
around, JBA carriers on 13160, 12500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7780 // 5800, UT Sat Aug 14 at 0200-0259, again
this week via both WRMI frequencies, the Texas Radio SW relay of
Europirate, Free Radio Service Holland. Frenetic DJ during the hour,
recounting history of station with constant music mostly in background
rather than complete tunes; heavily produced IDs, liners. Altho could
hear direct, both frequencies noisy so listening via Maryland remote
to 7780. This week it`s as weak as usual on the NE antenna rather than
seeming NW last week for Cupid Radio.

0207 FRSH ID, MoodyBlues; started Aug 31, 1980 with 10 watts on 6250;
0209 fragments of Deep Purple, Smoke in the Water; 0215 about raids in
1983. 0218 specific ID for this on WRMI 5800 [only: they don`t know
about 7780 either]. Covering 4 decades of history; QSL from
FRS@FRSHolland.nl or a P O Box in Herten; or see website
http://frsholland.nl where 9 different QSLs are available? Many many
are illustrated over the years, apparently including incoming ones
from listeners. 0221 announcement in German, one of FRSH` three
languages. 0228 Chris Watson mentioned; tribute to someone who is
late, Joop? something. 0238 WRMI 5800 ID, contact info again. 0243
says they produce 4 to 6 broadcasts per year. 0259 switch to YROT
theme of TRSW, Zanotti ID.

BTW, I reminded the WOR iog of this FRSH broadcast at 0129, and
during this week`s WOR 2099 which also aired just before it at 0130 on
9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2099 monitoring: confirmed UT Sat
Aug 14 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20 to Maryland SDR; S8-S9 direct.

Also confirmed on IRRS Shortwave: Sat Aug 14 on 918 kHz, AM Italia,
via Noale remote, tune-in 1754 is playing AWR Wavescan! But not on
schedule, evidently random filler, Ray Robinson reading story about
K/KOB Albuquerque, 1757 on to ``second story`` about WGN Chicago. WS
should be wrapping up by now if started at 1730; yes, at 1758 chopped
off incomplete for cut to Triumphal March from Aïda theme. I`m
simulmonitoring 7290 via UTwente, first weak Chinese and warble on the
USB, until strong signal cuts on a minute after 918, with the rest of
Aïda; both with brief sign-on about 4 seconds apart like WOR which
starts about 1800.7 --- monitored complete on both until 1829.7;
unlike last week when 7290 did not come on until about halfway over.
Next:

** U S A. 7730, Aug 14 at 0542, another WRMI missing, #13 which is
scheduled for 0000-1100, all Overkiller except two System D hours at
00 and 08. Also still gone, #5 from 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, Aug 14 at 0555 UT, big dead air which must be the
dominant KAAY AR, so I turn up volume to DX any understations: mainly
sports talk, Dan Patrick show; 0600 partial ID as 107.7, and HD2,
sounds like WACE? 0606 still DA with medium SAH vs sports talk.
Uplooked later in the 2020 NRC AM Log, the 1090 sportster with a 107.7
FM is 5000-watt ND *daytimer* WAQE, Rice Lake, Wisconsin. It`s on the
Fox SR network and so is Dan Patrick (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, Aug 14, 2021 at 0600 UT, KWKH sports talk has musiQRM
atop, not Spanish as I was hoping to ID that previous mystery. Then ID
for ``KLEY 1130 and 100.3 FM Wellington``. This KS station has been
silent for months but now it`s back; also VG S9+20 alone at 1352 with
``I Love Rock `n` Roll`` and at 1750 talk.

It`s 250 watt day, ONE WATT at night, yeah, sure, U4, which means
different direxional patterns day and night. On daytime groundwave it
was and is again a semi-local at 63 miles from the site S of
Wellington we have often passed on US 81. I had last barely detected
it, 1 watt? Aug 23, 2020 at 2132 UT. Obviously it`s on today to avoid
losing license and likely to go silent again ASAP. From this far I
can`t tell whether the 100.3 translator, K262CQ, has always stayed
operational. Part of the corporate mess at Rocking M Media. Obviously
there is no technical reason not to stay on AM air.

On Dec 5, 2020 I had reported:
1130 KLEY Wellington KS remains off, forever?
Correspondence that if not back on, license will expire Aug 21, 2021:

http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/getimportletter_exh.cgi?import_letter_id=96705

BTW, the only KLEY in radio-locator.com is an unrelated? FM in
Jourdanton TX, ``La Ley 95.7``. Unless you specify ``KLEY-AM`` even
tho ``-AM`` is not part of the true call of any AM station! Marked as
off the air and no link to coverage patterns. How about FCC AM Query?
https://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/amq?list=0&facid=31895

It is *not* flagged as off the air. Here is the 250-watt day pattern,
broadly direxional peaking NNW, and not much here to the SSW:

https://transition.fcc.gov/Bureaus/MB/Databases/AM_DA_patterns/8cf11831a21545c2aa10c1b6063ebeb7-860.pdf
What a joke, 1 watt at night, also direxional? Looks same, smaller:

claims 40 kW power. Dominating the frequency here, never mind Tulsa

** U S A. 9329.986, Aug 13 at 0610, WBCQ S7-S9 in Spanish, presumed
WLCR. Pretty good signal now if only 5 kW as Ivo says, but not 500 kW
again yet. And only 14 Hz off-frequency! WBCQ own schedule does not
show which languages at which times, but Aoki says Spanish at
0600-0757. This could be a CCI problem for Cuban Spy Numbers after
0700. However, HFCC claims this bihour be in English, only 250 kW at
280 degrees not toward any SS-land; while Spanish at other hours
should be on 76, 180 or 220 azimuths (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Aug 14 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`,
the whole show a conversation between Allan and `Pirate Joe`, J.P.
Ferraro on the phone --- -9180 line is hummy so change to -0982. We
hardly hear a word from Angela altho she still gets top billing. The
guys are reminiscing on the 50th anniversary of Aug 12, 1971, when
their first pirate radio stations were busted by the FCC. Do you
remember this? that? Back and forth. A lot of details I don`t try to
copy. They had been on the air since 1969 in Yonkers NY, first on MW
1620 when the band ended at 1600; then to FM 108.1 but soon 87.9 to
avoid causing any QRM. 50 watts power carried a lot further on FM than
on AM with no ground plane. Mentioned calls briefly: WFSR-AM as in
Falling Star Radio or Free Speech Radio; WSEX-FM; WKOV-AM and one more
I missed.

Finally down to business at 0055 about the axual FCC raid. The Feds
visited Allan`s place at 5 am, and JP`s at 8 am on the same day. They
let the air out of one tire of JP`s 1953 Plymouth so he couldn`t flee.
The two were handcuffed together, spent a few hours in jail along with
rapists, who avoided them once they said they were in for pirate
radio. Pled guilty of federal misdemeanors, violating Communications
Act of 1934; Allan`s dad, a lawyer, bailed them out. Got probation for
one year, no fines: these are the roots of WBCQ. They do never get to
later pirate activities long before WBCQ and WHVW would be licensed.

Update on the SuperStition: still waiting for replacement PA tube,
meanwhile on unspecified low-power backup. 0059 prayer, 0101 join Hal
Turner late as seems to be the case every week now. John Carver`s
version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 6160 and 7490. Allan later
announced they were also broadcasting on 3265 and 4790. Allan and
Angela in the studio. Opening talk about the heat in Northern
Maine-ninety degrees today. Some more talk about Angela's affinity for
the small wild animals around the station. Main topic of tonight's
show is to be free radio and Allan starts with the history of his
first pirate stations when he was a boy. Pirate Joe is to join him on
the phone for the talk. Phone call at 0010 has problems with the audio
so Allan has him call in on another line. The two of them start to
talk of their early radio stations as yesterday was the fiftieth
anniversary of the FCC raid that shut them down. Noise starts to come
up around 0018 making it difficult to copy as the volume on the phone
is so low it's difficult to hear Pirate Joe. They talk about their
first meeting and the early days of their pirate stations. Signal
covered over by some sort of noise around 0040 that just gets worse.
Can't copy a thing. The same noise is on 6160 and 4790. I go back to
7490 and listen to the rest of the show but all I can hear is noise.
Sorry. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALASKA. 9580, Aug 12 at 1406, S8-S9 vs S6 noise level, ``New Life
Station`` mentioned, i.e. KNLS English hour as scheduled; off the
back. Not to be confused with a ghost of R. Australia (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 382-MCW kHz, Aug 12 at 0549 UT, ND beacon dash and YPL,
which is 1000 watts from Pickle Lake, Ontario; one of my winter
regulars, now barely upshowing again, JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11840, Thu Aug 12 at 1550, Station YHWH with
``tonight`s lexure``, anti-Christ. Tnx to tip from Rick Barton, AZ a
few minutes ago on the WOR iog. As usual, AZ remote hardly hears it
nor the other I check in MO; but sufficient S8-S9 at #3 of VE6JY
Alberta. That should tell us something about skip distance from true
whatever QTH. Left on in background noting cutoff about 1638*. He`s
usually reported midday on Saturday, but also other days? 25m band
seems his favorite then, a different frequency each time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 515-MCW kHz, Aug 12 at 0545 and still 1400 UT,
NDB in Ponca City, PN, is back on the air after several days off. What
next? 255 Stillwater and 341 EI Enid, still missing, but on 341-MCW,
OIN Oberlin KS is JBA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
