Thursday, March 30 2023

updated March 29 for A23
[includes Romania updated since original March 29 version]

** CHINA [non]. 11880, March 29 at 1520, no signal from CRI English
via Cuba as appears in one unofficial A23 schedule at 1400-1600. First
one hour, then the other, were eliminated several years ago. Now there
is something S5/S8 in language, per HFCC TWR Swaziland at 1500-1530
daily in Somali, extended Sat/Sun to 1545. Could be long path. CRI
here would also be inconvenient for Romania in German at 1400-1500
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12120, March 29 at 0644, RHC YL in English, S8/S9 vs RTTY,
CODAR. 2 x 6060, checking since at 0634, 6060 was only RHC still on,
S7/S9. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, March 29 at 1518, S9/S6 of dead air from RHC, while
the only scheduled //, 15140 is S8 and modulated but suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460, March 29 at 1514, S9/+10 two signals
clashing making fast SAH, at the moment Turkish jammer and Denge
Welat; one or both could jump anywhere else up to 17480 at least. Site
for DW still not certain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 29 at 2107, dead air from SNR`s NAm frequency
-- hey, that`s a step up from no signal at all yesterday! Still thus
at 2200 for token Wednesday English, but 15520 is sufficient altho
aimed exactly away from us toward ME! I`m listening direct on the
DX-398 portable with reelout. 17715 for SAm also audible with
modulation. 2207 feature is all about Shostakovich`s satirical opera
``The Nose``, after short story by Gogol, now being performed in
Madrid. Interviews one tenor who sings seven different rôles. Outro by
YL presenter with an uncopied name neither Amy Egan nor Hélena
Rigobert (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAJIKISTAN. Re: ``13809.966, March 27 at 1518, JBA talk off-
frequency. HFCC A23 shows at 1500-1700, USAGM Chinese Mandarin via DB
site. A jammer would probably be more accurate``

Just repeated at 2130 UT March 29 on PBS Create channel via OETA-3:

``Get Fly. Follow world traveler Ernest White II as he travels the
earth, building authentic connections along the way.``
``Fly Brother -- Tajikistan: Crown of the World
05/14/2021 | 26m 42s | Video has closed captioning.
Ernest experiences the natural beauty of the country and the natural
warmth of the people, as his friends, tour guide Mohammed Istam and
rock climber/ media maven Nigina Kudratova, show what makes Tajikistan
so special.``
This channel has lots of good travelogue shows, armchairish
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, March 29 at 2200, 2230 and later chex, NO signal
direct from VOT English, so I have to listen to SPAIN instead. Ho hum,
erroneous at Emirler yet again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 17700, March 29 at 1513, big S9+10/20, bit of
Qur`aning? and non-Arabic talk. HFCC shows USAGM in Hausa = VOA at
1500-1530 daily via SMG VATICAN. Another 1530-1600 M-F only switched
to Woofferton UK. Furthermore on 17700: 1600-1830 Sat only, BBC Hausa
via ASCENSION. First thought it might be Algeria ex-17600, but that`s
reconfirmed during this span on 21550 ex-17600 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2183 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
March 28 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/25 into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed Wednesday March 29 at 2117 check the 2100 on WBCQ 7490
minus 74 Hz = 7489.926, S9/+5 into Maryland SDR, inaudible direct.
Needs to be on a higher band for daytime. Next:

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** AUSTRALIA. 10125 USB, March 28 at 0633, weak ham talking about his
equipment, Oz accent. 0636 cambio to JBA contact, tentative ID by
first one as VK3O. QRZ.com shows this but expired in November:
``VK3O Australia flag Australia, Special Events Callsign, Steve
Gregory, Contest Operations, Hamilton Victoria 3300, Australia, QSL:
VK3OT`` -- but was a ragchew, not a contest. As reported previously,
only Australia has apparently authorized phone on ``30m`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11760, March 28 at 2208, RHC Spanish direct with
considerable Chinese music CCI --- Commies vs Commies! HFCC A23 shows
CRI ``Portuguese`` at 22-23, 500 kW, 317 degrees via Xi`an. How could
CRI know about RHC which refuses to participate in HFCC? The Other

``'If you're young in Cuba you can't work, you have to scrap'
DIARIO DE CUBA spoke with several young people about their job
prospects and wages in Cuba today.
Jorge Enrique Rodríguez, La Habana 27 Mar 2023 - 17:31 CEST
A restaurant in Old Havana. Diario de Cuba

"In Cuba, if you're young, to enjoy your youth you can't work for the
State, you have to scrap," said Aaron Machado, a 25-year-old Havana
man we met at one of the most exclusive bars in the historic center of
Old Havana, where he was eating with his partner and some friends...``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 28183.2 as I estimate it, March 28 at 2219, first beacon
encountered is a regular: ``VVV XE1RCS/B EK09`` and dash, i.e.:
``28.183 XE1RCS C CERRO GORDO, MEXICO # 5W, VERTICAL New 8/08/08, Club
call 27/06/10 Back on 16 Sept 1`` per WI5V list (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.908 AM, March 28 at 0130, JBA music, S8/S9,
unID pirate. Also unID here, believe subject line misdated 27 Mar:
since on Mar 28 logs are called ``today`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7325 USB, March 28 at 0630, S4/S5 pop music vs S8/S5
storm noise level direct; lower level modulation also when tuned to
7325 LSB. Checking since on WOR iog the Russian ethnic pirate from NV?
has been reported here, ex 4015 USB. That is, восточная звезда or if
your display can`t handle Cyrillic, Vostochnaya Zvezda = Eastern Star,
presumably nothing to do with an American women`s Christian group, but
no ID heard by me.

First reported by Ron Howard on March 27: ``UNID. 7325-USB, 0956-0957
UT. I often check this frequency in the hope that Wantok Radio Light
(PNG) will reactivate, but I never heard anything before 0957, so I
was very surprised to hear a station only in USB, playing a pop song
till totally blocked by the start of CRI at *0957. Is this a pirate or
what? My audio -
Ron California``

Lucas Bandura, BC, replied at 2130: ``Ron, I reposted your 7325 USB
log on the HFU in case anyone there would know anything about it or
stay up late enough to check. Big Badfish Al wrote: “Vostochnaya
Zvezda most likely since they are no longer on 4015 USB and had the
same playlist.”``

Lucas at 2135: ``I am listening on the KFS SE KiwiSDR now, good S3.
Much better frequency than 4015! Listeners outside of the US Southwest
might have a chance at hearing it now, we will see when night comes.
On 4015 it could not be heard at any SDR sites during the day.``

Walt Salmaniw, BC, replied: ``Hopefully a much better choice as 4015
barely made it to Masset. I’d like to see a daytime frequency as
well!73, Walt``

Lucas replied at 2148 March 27: ``Token in California on the HFU
reported hearing YHWH on 11560 AM three times during his first week of
being active in 2023 but I have been checking that frequency daily and
heard only legal stations. I will ask Token sometime if he has heard
him there since. A daytime frequency would be great for VZ. I am
guessing he is much like the Northeast pirates; they use NVIS antennas
and don’t really care if they make it outside their region since that
is outside their target area.``

Ron Howard at 2309 UT March 27: ``Thanks very much to Amano for his
input regarding my 7325-USB (Vostochnaya Zvezda [Eastern Star])
reception, after he listened to my audio. Ron:

"00:00-01:25[on my audio clip], this song is Russian popular music.
«Магнитная Aномалия» Алло Стелла.
“Magnetic Anomaly“ by Allo Stella.
YouTube - https://youtu.be/6eK2C_Hvd2Q .
Amano, Saitama, Japan"``

Walt: ``Yes, exactly the same. The childish voice at 04:14 is the same
as heard on 4015, and also the clips that Lucas provided earlier. I
can't make out what the child says at all. Shazam also isn't able to
ID any of the music played in the last 10 minutes or so.``

At 0437 March 28, from Lucas Bandura, BC: ``Very, very weak here at
0330 UT. As Walt said the same child voice in a non-English language
is heard and the music format is the same. No identifications over
about an hour of listening. The audio is still restricted to 2.5 kHz
but the bad splatter can be seen on the KFS SE KiwiSDR when the signal
gets up to S9+10. The splatter covers about 7320-7330 kHz. A bit
distorted so I think he needs to turn the audio input down.``

Gary Pence to the WOR iog at 0351: ``EX station 4015 khz is on right
now On 7325 khz USB S7-S9 KPH Point Reyes, California --- Hi Glenn,
also heard same signal profile on S. Nev. Radio Ranch. Got to be the
same guy that was on 4015 khz``

Salmaniw at 0448: ``Not a great frequency, especially due to the
splatter from very powerful 7335 which is Radio Martí? Best to head
lower by 10 or 50 kHz, or higher somewhere. Walt``

Bandura at 0455: ``Yes, 7335 is Radio Martí. I agree that he could
find a better frequency, but at least it’s a huge improvement over
4015 USB.``

Bandura at 0632: ``He is now being heard fairly strong across North
America, but the Radio Martí slop is really bad.``

And Bandura at 0700: ``I have created a new page on the HFU Wiki for
this station:
Anyone with an account on the HFU can edit the wiki or you can post
information that should be added to the page and I will add it.``

Other logs of 7325:

Dan Robinson reports 7325 on the WOR iog at 2119 UT March 28:
``Listening at Stauffer, CA SDR, hearing it with music as of 2011 UTC.
"You are listening to Radio Vostochnaya Zvezda. Thank you for....." at
2019 UTC [sic]`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4820, March 28 at 0657, JBA carrer; and no Chazuta 4810 now.
Further research about this Radio Integridad:

RAFAEL RODRIGUEZ, Colombia, March 23, translation: ``4820 kHz UNID,
after 0100 UT the signal that my colleague Auguste [sic] Galaz
reported since March 17 as Radio Integridad is reaching me. At the
moment with Andean praise music and something that seems to be a
vernacular locution and with sounds of "Windows" in the middle of the
songs. It is clear that it is not rebroadcasting the Radio Integridad
signal at this time, confirmed with its online audio. The MTC of Perú
{as of year 2005! gh} registers a station authorized to operate on
this frequency (OAW-6C) from Arequipa, but it also registers others
that are not active, so it is hasty to say that it is the same.``

On March 27: ``[WOR] Possible Identity of new 4820 Khz from Perú ---
Hi, Marcos C. from Vicuña, Chile here. I have not written here in many
years but here is something interesting for you:

I read some days ago about a new Peruvian on 4820 Khz thanks to fellow
DXer Claudio Galaz and I found some info about this new station. I
heard the station just now and they were not relaying RRI (Red Radio
Integridad) but Radio Integridad from Trujillo, La Libertad.

Here is some short clip where they identified themselves as "Radio
Integridad 105.7 FM, La Voz que glorifica a dios" at 00:52 UTC
The station ended the broadcast around 02:05 UTC. There is more info
in Spanish here``

Nueva Estacion de Onda Corta en Perú por los 4820 Khz
Ha aparecido una nueva estación de Onda Corta en Perú.

Esta nueva estación de Radio de Onda Corta transmite por los 4820 Khz
que hasta ahora por las noches se ha escuchado que retransmite a Radio
Integridad de Trujillo, La Libertad, Perú con programación cristiana
con programas como "Aviva nuestros corazones" de Nancy de Moss y
también programas de Radio Transmundial

En el siguiente clip puedes escuchar la identificación a las 00:52 UTC
del 27 de Marzo de 2023

Según el MTC (Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones) de Perú en
ambos listados de frecuencias autorizadas y registro nacional de
frecuencias, aparece autorizada una estación de radio por los 4820 Khz
pero en Cotahuasi, Arequipa.

La persona que registró esta frecuencia también registró una adicional
por los 99.9 FM, en esa frecuencia transmite una estación religiosa
llamada Radio Senda Cristiana que transmite hace varios años por esa
frecuencia FM.

Podría ser que esta estación de Radio es Radio Senda Cristiana que
transmite desde Cotahuasi, Arequipa? Hasta ahora lo único seguro es
que retransmite a Radio Integridad desde Trujillo, La Libertad.
Publicado por Mr Dx Chile en 23:11``

``Tnx, Marcos, good to hear from you. I guess this Integridad may not
be related to the Red, not on their station list:
They do have a different FM station in La Libertad, Pacasmayo on 90.9

Marcos: ``apparently not, because they don't mention Red Radio
Integridad neither in their website nor their facebook page``

Bryan Clark, March 28 at 0517: ``Here in the north of New Zealand,
I've been hearing a weak signal on 4820 since 0450 UT today. Now, at
0515 I am hearing it quite well on my WinRadio SDR.

Checking KiwiSDRs in South America before 0500, I heard an
identification for Radio Integridad and the Peruvian anthem just
before the hour. After the hour it appears to be carrying a syndicated
Christian news programme. I found a matching webstream for Radio
Integridad Trujillo as well. The SDR Alpha Corral LU1HCW is providing
a good clean signal. If the station runs overnight it will be a
reasonably easy catch for DXers in the South Pacific. Regards, Bryan,
Mangawhai NZ``

Lucas Bandura: ``Still no mention of 4820 kHz on their website. Has
anyone tried emailing them, r_integridad@yahoo.com to ask about the
new frequency?``

Bruce Churchill, California: ``UNID Peruvian heard quite well on 28
Mar on 4820 from SDR in W. Iceland from 0633 to 0703 with relay of
Radio Integridad in Trujillo (as indicated by Bryan this program was
parallel to web stream for Radio Integridad 105.7 FM). S3 to S4 on
SINPO scale. Missionary stations in LA typically use their own
transmitters such as R Chaski and R Logos – so the real question is,
is this station departing from the pattern and leasing (or using)
someone else’s transmitter? In any case, well heard both in Iceland
and NZ so likely not a low-power operation. I did e-mail the station
per Lucas’s suggestion. We’ll see. Bruce``

I hope this roundup has been helpful. Maybe sometime I shall hear more
than a JBA carrier, myself (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. Habitually I had been listening to VOT English at 2300 on
5960 via UTwente, where I could be sure of a loud & clear signal -
except for some CCCCCCI. Now at 2200 on 11785, it should arrive better
to deep North America. So I try it direct, March 28: 2158, IS playing
with English IDs, S8/9+20 with quite a lot of pumping fading but no
QRM. No problem from 11780 if that`s Brasil, S3/S6. Timesignal at 2200
is 2.5 seconds late compared to WWV! After s/on citing only four
*other* English emissions, news items include demos in France, PKK
terrorists, bus accident in Sa`udi Arabia, Nashville school shootings.
2207 `Review of the Turkish Press`; 2210 music; 2214 promo VOT in 41
languages on website, `Weekly Commentary` by a prof at Manchester
Univ, about WHO, cholera rates, Bangladesh, but read by extreme
accentedess, so I try 26110, see USA. And 28183, see Mexico. Back on
UTwente S9+30/35 at 2249 to catch the multilingual ID reel filler;
2252 s/off with 4 other broadcasts only, 2254* off before IS can be
completed even once. Something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 26110 NBFM, March 28 at 2216, KMK282 is on, weather info for
Sacramento and The Valley, steady S9, very gradual fade to S8; ends at
2217 with vamp musiic, now S7, 2218 dead air, and autocutoff at
2218.5. No doubt will be back off and on. That means local news on
KOVR or KMAX at 3:16 local time, or a pre-recording (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CHINA [and non]. So what`s holding up on 16m in A23 after 0000 UT?
Only JBA carriers March 27 at 0017 on 17560, 17580, 17880. HFCC: 17560
USAGM Tinang, Philippines in Chinese, ergo also jammed; 17580 CNR from
LIN site; 17880 CRI Portuguese from Beijing site aimed NW toward
Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6000, March 27 at 0028, will RHC be in English here
as early as 0000 in summer? No, undermodulated Spanish at S9+20/30 and
6165 is not on. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 9700, unlisted
frequency from RHC recently in Spanish or English is now occupied by
VG Romania in Spanish at 02-03 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, March 27 at 0631, R. Rebelde S9+20/30 but distorted.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9884.958, March 27 at 0027, dead air of S9/+15 direct,
something new about to sign on? No, still dead past 0100. Suspect it`s
Radio Cairo since also -42v Hz off frequency; and indeed ERTU is in
HFCC A23 on 9885 as 2330-0045 to CIRAFs 13 & 15 from Abis, 125 kW, 252
degrees in Arabic. At 0059 I try Maryland SDR, where it`s S9+10/20 and
-45 Hz offset. Still going at 0115, but cuts off at 0116*.

I suspect it has finally switched to 9860, which was supposed to start
at 0045 in Spanish until 0200. I retune immediately at 0116 to 9860
and there it is, same signal level, same dead air, same offset until
cuts off at 0207*. For further checking, also A23 sked: 2115-2245
still 9440 English, 2215-2330 9900 Portuguese. Obviously two
transmitters would have to be working at 2215-2245 if both were to be
simulheard, unlikely. One of them used to be about +2.5 kHz (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460, March 27 at 1522, algo JBA but stronger
than JJBBA on 17480. Presumably one is Dengê Welat and the other the
Turkish jammer. FWIW, HFCC A23 shows nothing on 17460, 17470 or 17480,
but somestuff somewhen on 17475, 17485, 17490.

At 1800 into UTwente, two very strong on 17470 & 17480 not QRMing each
other; I hardly care which be which. At 1847, still separate, 17470
much stronger. But by 1905 both on 17480 making a fast SAH. UTwente
Synch reads +6 Hz, and then +10. Songs are dominant, but still could
be either.

Next check UTwente at 2038: they are separate again, both quite
weakened into the night: 17470 talk, 17480 music. Then at 2040, 17480
starts declaiming, I guess Recep? No, at 2044 on 17470 a music liner
like I hear on VOT English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, March 27 at 0632, RNZP is here ex-13755, just
as VG, S9+20/30. HFCC A23 as of today shows it registered available
1830-0800. On RNZP own sked, only: 0559-0858, but DRM at 1859-2058.
Why move off 13755? Nothing between 1600 & 0900. Adjacents? On 13760,
nothing 06-09; on 13750 only Romania Sundays only 07-08. But:

``13840 kHz suffers from co-channel QRM {from what??} between
0600-0800 UT. I have checked my own KiwiSDR, as well as KiwiSDRs in
Kyushu Japan and Indonesia. However, it seems that it does not affect
the listeners in Australia and the Pacific and the QRM are too
noticeable. yogi_miaow (QTH Hong Kong)`` on the WOR iog (Glenn Hauser,

** OKLAHOMA. RF 18, March 27 circa 1600 UT, SCRIPPS non-cable news
channel is now on virtual 62-5 via KOPX OKC, just switched from 62-6,
why? And it was originally on 62-7. I check the entire lineup per PSIP
62-1 ION
62-2 Bounce
62-3 CourtTV
62-4 Grit
62-5 Jewelry
62-7 ShopLC
62-8 HSN
Rabbitears.info already shows same lineup; also icon that 62-1
transmits secondary audio, something I have not explored in a long
time. Pressing the SAP button on the STB remote makes it toggle
between English and Spanish labels -- but both are speaking English
only, during the commercials running when I try at 1740 UT, and still
so when back to `Criminal Minds` drama.

My old Set Top Box remembers to intersperse some other virtual 62s out
of RF47: I don`t even remember what that was. But searching out a
2014y log of mine, that fits for KSMO-TV in Kansas City. Now that`s
one of the still few ATSC 3.0 stations I could not decode, on RF 32,
virtual 62 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. I don`t have RRI`s A23 frequencies memorized, but soon
encounter them in bandscanning: March 26 at 0020 in English on 11620,
S9/+20, and at 0025 on // 9550, S9/+10 but low het perhaps Brasil. In
Romanian, at 0022 on 11945 equal level to 11620; // 9730, S9+10/20

** SPAIN. At 2046 March 27 I check UTwente for SNR reception, not
expecting the best as it`s generally too close for HF skips: NO signal
on 17855 for NAm, but 17715 for SAm has weak sig. 15520 for ME is fair
- and no CubaRM; 11670 for Af is best but with squeal, always the
worst in NAm. Then I check Virginia SDR: 17855 is indeed OFF - great
start for the season with English coming up at 2200 ex-2300; 17855 was
on *March 26, Englishless Sunday. In VA, 17715 is S4/S7 about equal to
15520 as `Españoles en la Mar` hour is concluding.

From 2202 I`m trying again for English: still no 17855 anywhere; 15520
is sufficient to Maryland SDR, S5/S9, and I stick here since it`s a
very interesting interview about the Spanish language with someone
from Scotland who is a member of the Real Academia Española, Alexis
Furman? Spanish is now the second-most spoken language in the world
after Mandarin, by 600 megapeople including 500M native speakers. EUA
will soon be second-largest SS country after México, overtaking
Argentina, Spain. Is now official language in 20 countries, adding
Guinea Ecuatorial. Is easy to learn, very logical, unlike English et
al. Discussion of keeping accents, including a few cases where they
are used to distinguish `same` words with different meanings such as
solo vs sólo, mas vs más. Each SS country has its own Academy and they
all coöperate with the RAE. A congress this year has been quickly
rearranged by Spain due to unrest in Perú (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAJIKISTAN. 13809.966, March 27 at 1518, JBA talk off-frequency.
HFCC A23 shows at 1500-1700, USAGM Chinese Mandarin via DB site. A
jammer would probably be more accurate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, March 26 at 2157 I`m all set for VOT`s new English
to N America frequency, via Maryland SDR. Nothing until chops on
slightly late about *2200:20 as horribly accented YL is reading
schedule. No problem from 11780 Brasil - weak signal there, might not
even be on. Mainly listening to UBMP this hour, I catch her horribly
accented sign/off at 2253 when she cites only four English broadcasts
with new times and frequencies in jumbled presentation, not including
this one! 1230-1330 15450; 1830-1930 5945 Eu; 2030-2130 9875 SAs;
1630-1730 11660 ME. Chopped off at 2254* before IS can complete only
once. Something`s awry in Ankara, erroneous in Emirler.

Quick check March 27 at 2201: 11785 is VG into UTwente, but some
splash from 11775 Chinese, also VG into Maryland SDR, but I`m mainly
escuching Spain, the two insisting on Englishing us at sametime. At
least there is no more CCCCCCI on 11785 like there was on 5960.
Sign-off and presumably sign-on continues to omit this very broadcast,
rather four others. Once off by 2254, Brasil is a bigsig on 11780, but
not a problem earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 12095, March 27 at 1528, B-B-C chimes at S8/S9, 1529.5
opening in Korean - one language BBC has not yet abandoned, sked
1530-1830, 250 kW, 25 degrees from SINGAPORE, so carries on well to
CNAm far beyond Korea North (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2183 monitoring: confirmed UT

** U S A. 9455, March 27 at 0620, this WRMI is off again despite 24h
schedule, while 9395 & 9955 are VG. 9455 also off at 1526 while 9395
is on. Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, WTWW-2 continues to be silent as of UT March 27.
George McClintock updates us: he is back home after hospitalized with
COVID, hopes to continue recovering. Maybe will be able to go into
station tomorrow. Parts from China to get WTWW-1 back on air still
have not arrived, maybe in a week or two.

Earlier from him with photo: ``This BARIX box will decode the internet
stream of Pastor Peters programs. The old Media player has caused many
drops outs of the program requiring a restart of the player. The BARIX
box will not have this problem. It will be installed shortly. George
McClintock 3-22-2023`` Front panel also labeled: EXSTREAMER 110. One
can google all about it; typical price $ 305 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9836 USB, March 27 at 1525, 2-way in Spanish (Glenn
