** CUBA. Pertinent to 250 kW of dead airs, not to mention jamming, not
to mention whether even successful SW broadcasts are worth it:

Electricity Prices Shock Cubans: Over 2,590 Pesos
Some electricity bills exceed the minimum wage of 2,100 pesos.
DDC | La Habana
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1612631622_28636.html
Perhaps there be a hidden ``SW wastage`` tax imposed on the poor
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0720 UT, ND beacon DDP, which is
1000 watts from San Juan - Dorado. I was tuned to 390-USB. Always nice
to hear this far one when it propagate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. Correxion to original report as 17545.007 --- was
supposed to be 17745.007; I had Bayto Yaikl on my mind. It`s a week
later before I notice this in the NASWA Flashsheet; is no one else
paying attention? Not me, hi! Original log report fixed:

17745.007, Feb 1 at 1455, HOA talk and bit of music S9-S4, slightly
off-frequency until cut off at 1459.5*. Per Aoki/NDXC, it`s BBC Somali
via UAE at 1430-1500; also at 1100-1130 via Madagascar, plus Saturdays
only UAE starting at 1130 filling in the gap - for silly ballgames?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 407-MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0718, NDB IL, which is 25 watts from
wILmington, Ohio; tuned to 405-USB, and hard to untangle from
always-there HRU in Kansas, about the same pitches (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2072 monitoring: confirmed Sunday February 7
at 2302 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.93, S6-S8, at Nunavut item so
probably started on time at 2300, hopefully both on SW and webcast.

(Meanwhile the other WBCQ airs UBMP with Tajik music on 7390.22; The
first half-hour of this always repeats 25 hours later, so you can
listen to WOR and still get the first of UBMP later.) Both offsets
confirmed by KB0FX remote in SAM mode.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 8 at 0057 just in time the 0030 on
WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 8 at 0230 on WRMIs: 5800 VG S9+20
via Bonaire; 7780 VP S3 with staticrashes via UTwente; also WRN web.

Also confirmed at UTwente Mon Feb 8 from 1900:33 on IRRS via Bulgaria
7290, intact at spotchex until closing 29 minutes later with a pause
before some music fill. Usual ambiside splash de 7295 East Turkistan
and just as bad 7280 Vietnam. Earlier, weak carrier on at *1854:28,
bump up to full power by 1854:30, open carrier until 1859:50 last word
of algo and cut to ending of sign-on with PO box only; 1900:04

** U S A. Ahoy Glenn - We saw your write-up about us in your log for
February 6-7. We've received lots of compliments for WRMI's 5950 kHz

edition eQSL. Please mark March 7 on your calendar so you'll remember
to listen to our Ladies of Texas Music Tribute on WRMI. 73 and
Arrgghh. Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then always

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1110, Feb 8 at 2115 UT, talkshow in English, loops NNE/SSW
like KFAB Omaha; I`m checking at about the same time I was DXing a
biday ago from Nescatunga, finding good signal from this whilst little
from 1040 WHO Des Moines, which is a little further but ought to be
doing at least as well via skywave, both 50 kW ND in daytime. Soon I
check the remote in Omaha just to be positive, and then at 2130 a
remote in Crowley TX, which is getting KVTT but poorly despite
proximity: talk in S Asian language, mentions Pakistan so maybe Urdu?
Then an adstring mostly in accented-English obviously concerning The
Metroplex, two ``Radio Azad`` IDs heard, not ``FunAsia`` as in
radio-locater. And the Azad name is not in NRC AM Log. Seemingly has
no website to look up languages. Azad means ``free`` in Urdu, et al.

KFAB however shows a local talkhost afternoons, Chris Baker, who would
rather live in Omaha than Miami! KFAB is fading up and down a bit ---
it`s at that awkward distance between edge of pure groundwave and
skywave ramping up, 352 miles city-to-city; while Des Moines is 425

** BRAZIL. 6134.877, Feb 7 at 0710, VP off-frequency, and a bit of
RCC-pious Brasuguese, ``cheia de graça``, so certainly R. Aparecida,
which can never decide whether to stay off-frequency-minus or +plus.
When it`s minus we can always hope it`s Radio Santa Cruz, Bolivia,
back instead; it may not be RC but just named for the city. I check
9630+ but no signal from the other Apparition now. Slogan does not
mean ``full of grease``, which is graxa, but ``grace``. Altho my
Langenscheidt dixionary comes up only with eleven other translations
of graça. Wolfgang Bueschel also happened to log it at 0735 on
6134.879, close enough (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11540, Feb 7 at 1525, something here and nothing
on 11530 so Denge Welat and/or Turkey jammer have shifted again. After
1500, DW is supposed to be via FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11705, Feb 7 at 1530, talk maybe Farsi? and
music, S5-S9. No, must be Juba Arabic as R. Tamazuj is the only thing
anywhen on 11705 per Aoki/NDXC, via MADAGASCAR, and gone at 1601
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5980, Feb 7 at 0702, clear mixture of DGS from 5935 and
Overcomer audio from 5890, i.e. leapfrog mixing product another 45 kHz
beyond, between two WWCR adjacent transmitters; also some residual
Cuban pulse jamming, adding up to S9 here, while 5935 is S9+30, 5890
is S9+40. Unusually strong in the nightmiddle; often earlier in
evening they have faded way down, depending on MUF and skip distances.
No, 5980 is not receiver-produced: still there with preamps off (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6049.975, Feb 7 at 0707, JBA audio off-frequency.
Suspected ELWA Liberia which I have a tough time logging anywhen. Is
it known to be minus 25 Hz? Per Aoki, only other 6050s now are Tibet
and Malaysia, both in the their daytime and the latter long gone. ELWA
supposedly starts at 0530 but is far enough west still to propagate
this late, and I hear it no better earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13650, Feb 6 at 2335, have been listening to the nice
Chinese music on CRI`s so-called ``Portuguese`` service via CUBA, on
caradio; BTW, I see that WRTH 2021 says nothing about this and some
other Eurolangs being replaced for months by music fill only. Maybe
that will be noted in the free B-20 pdf updater coming out shortly.
Passing by the 94.3/99.9 joint LPFM transmitter site on N side of Enid
on US 81, once again 13650 is overridden by FM noise from them; likely
overloads on any SW frequency tuned on the caradio, but fortunately
lasts for only a few blox (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 7 at 0125, RHC`s tropical frequency is OFF; still
off at 0332 next check. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6180, Feb 7 at 0141, S9/+10 of dead air --- almost:
occasional few words of English JBA. Is this the CRI relay as
scheduled? Much weaker signal than not // 6000 RHC English, and
unusual heavy flutter on 6180 - RNA Brasil is probably SAHing it but
also too weak on 11780 to make a match, nor any DRM noise audible
around 11910 but if heard would not be // either.

5910, Feb 7 at 0336, this CRI English via CUBA has VG signal and
modulation, but no trace via KB0FX remote of harmonic on 11820.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4015-USB, UT Sun Feb 7 at 0122, pirate music at
S9/+10, reminds me of ``Surfin` USA``, but not per playlisters, where
everything is on a ``sweet`` theme; 0129 ``Wolverine Radio`` expected
ID. Still going at 0200 with bluegrass when I tune over to 5950 for
TRSW. Many more logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,77752.0.html
Last time I heard it on 74m, was Jan 24 on 4055-USB. Nothing doing on
43m tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1610 kHz, Feb 6 circa 2200 UT, no signal from this TIS as
in IRCA 2018 list:
``1610 WQCL720 OK Jet Alfalfa Alfalfa County OSU Extension's Great
Salt Plains Lake (9 Mi N of Jet on SR 38) [ALERT] 36.742667 98.132333
expires 04/04/15 source tRs heard 10/13``

It used to be barely audible daytime in western Enid from quiet
parking lots with NOAA Weatheradio relay; not lately, but certainly
was still on long past 2015y. Now I drive right by the site at park
entrance, across from Kegelman radome and aux Vance AFB airstrip, and
it`s gone --- no signal and no TIS antenna or transmitter at all.

However, there is a new TIS-suspicious-looking pole on the east side
of US 81/60/64 north of Enid, south of the T-junxion. No sign and no
signal on 1610 or 530 -- yet? Not far from highway construxion which
is going to continue for a long time, eventually widening all of this
strip to much-needed four lanes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 750, Feb 6 circa 2124 UT, still no signal from KMMJ Grand
Island NE, which has been off for months pending sale and reformatting
--- and recalling? During bandscan on caradio near Nescatunga at
artesian well. Here there is less splash daytime from 740 KRMG (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1110, Feb 6 at 2123 UT, VG talk signal presumed KFAB Omaha
NE skywave already; yet the next 50 kW station to the east, 1040 WHO
Des Moines IA, is barely audible. This does not make sense if both of
them are really 50 kW ND! Could 1110 really be KVTT The Metroplex?
This was English, not Asian, and altho 50 kW, KVTT is direxionally
unfavorable; yet higher 50 kW direxional Mpx stations 1440 gospel
huxter already in well, and also 1480 Vietnamese like 1560 Houston
(Glenn Hauser, near Nescatunga OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1370, Feb 6 at 2121 UT, insurance ad, ``1370 KGNO`` ID and
C&W music, not strong and fading but mostly dominant on caradio at
artesian well N of Nescatunga OK on State Hwy 11. I don`t hear it in
Enid and was believed off or QRP for longtime but in last few months
others have heard it active. I`d say it`s still underpowered for rated
5 kW ND at only 198 km = 122 statute miles from Dodge City over the
Ogallala Aquifer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2072 monitoring: on the road, not
in a position to confirm the Sat 2030v Feb 6 airing on WA0RCR,
1860-AM; anyone hear it, when?

Confirmed Sat Feb 6 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, good on caradio and no
jamming audible, but starting to show during `Viva Miami` following at
2300 with mailbag in English.

Also confirmed Sat Feb 6 at 2308 the 2300 on WRMI 7780, JBA on caradio
N of Enid on US 81/64/60.

Also confirmed starting at 0422:30 UT Sun Feb 7 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM,
the Gateway 160 Meter radio Newsletter, VG via nearby Warrenton MO
remote but with lightning crashes which must be coming all the way
from the FL/GA area per Blitizortung. Next:

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun Feb 7 at 0200, WRMI-8 with `YROT` opening Texas
R Shortwave now with a regular slot: roboYL signs on in English and
German offering special eQSLs for detailed reports; subject is Outlaw
music, first tune starts about west Tennessee. Similar if not
identical IDs and QSL offers at 0214; and 0242 followed by an
18-wheeler song, 0256 signing off, 0257 YROT theme again. Good
S9+10/20 and clear but by the end with a SAH maybe Ethiopia. Same
program is to repeat at same time every week this month (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Feb 7 at 0129, WTWW-2 hamtalk wrapping up with
looong list of credits; by 0131 `Theatre Organ Under the Arch` is
underway with another guest thorganist, but I can`t keep listening
once music starts due to pervasive ripple on very strong carrier
distorting the music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 9265: Richard Langley, NB, replies to my report
about Unique Radio via WINB, Feb 5 at 2100-2230:

``"also had some clix about once a second, not sure if a transmission
defect or QRM; audible up to 9280 but not on the minus side"

Also heard clicks here in NB at a higher frequency (10 or 15 kHz?) as
I was tuning down to 9265 kHz. Clicks were not heard on 9265 kHz so
the program was QRM-free.

"informal discussion but hard to follow with SW reception declining"

This was the "Postcard from Poprad" news chat show with Eric Wiltsher
(former U.K.journalist, BBC, etc.), Dave Rhodes, and Rachael Brunsden.
Chatting about current events; mostly U.S. politics, CNN, and MSNBC,
and Google in Australia. Poprad is a city at the foot of Slovakia’s
Tatras Mountains. And RTI is now principally a streaming "radio"
station based in Poprad. -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545.06V, Sat Feb 6 at 1537, JBA Bayto Yaikl on one

Issoudun transmitter is cycling/wobbling slightly up and down in
frequency, easily noticeable with BFO if not in AM (Glenn Hauser, OK,

``UPDATED: OCC shuts down disposal wells in response to 4.2 quake
Violet Hassler | Enid News & Eagle Feb 5, 2021 Updated 22 hrs ago


https://www.enidnews.com/news/updated-occ-shuts-down-disposal-wells-in-response-to-4-2-quake/article_da03c78c-67d3-11eb-8a63-87b4f71a9a99.html

Map of disposal wells:

https://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/enidnews.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/c/44/c44353e4-6810-11eb-a6f5-af7979db37df/601de0b452422.image.jpg?resize=1200%2C927

COVINGTON, Okla. — Responding to a swarm of at least 18 earthquakes —
including one measuring magnitude 4.2 — in the Covington-Lucien area
Tuesday {sic! it was Friday, Feb 5 --- gh}, Oklahoma Corporation
Commission has ordered disposal wells in the area to cease or reduce
operations.

Disposal wells within three miles of the largest earthquake’s
epicenter have been ordered to cease operations, while wells from 3 to
10 miles of the epicenter must reduce volume to no more than 50% of
the current 30-day average, according to an OCC news release.

The decision was made by OCC’s Induced Seismicity Department. It is
estimated the actions will reduce disposed volumes by about 9,000
barrels a day, according to OCC.

“Researchers are in broad agreement that disposal into the Arbuckle
formation in parts of Oklahoma can raise risk of induced seismicity,”
said Matt Skinner, OCC spokesman. “Commission ISD directives since
2015 limiting or eliminating such disposal are among the actions
credited with the sharp decrease in Oklahoma’s seismicity rate since
2015.

The quakes — about four miles east and 1.5 south of Covington and 21
miles southeast of Enid — started at about 10:17 a.m., with magnitudes
3.5 and a 3.7 shaking the region, respectively, about 40 seconds
apart, according to U.S. Geological Survey. Both were between about
2.5 and 3.7 miles deep and centered in the same area.

About an hour later, two smaller quakes hit — a 2.3 at 11:27 a.m. and
2.6 at 11:29 a.m. — with the largest quake of the morning, a magnitude
4.2, centered in the same area at 11:48 a.m., according to USGS. It
also was at a depth of 3.1 miles. Smaller quakes continued with a 2.6
at 11:59 a.m.; a 2.2 at 12:03 p.m.; a 2.3 at 12:14 p.m.; a 1.5 at
12:44 p.m.; a 1.9 at 1:12 p.m.; a 2.1 at 1:59 p.m.; a 1.8 at 2:20
p.m.; a 1.5 at 3:59 p.m.; a 1.9 at 4:31 p.m.; a 1.7 at 4:36 p.m.; a
1.7 at 5:08 p.m.; a 1.8 at 6:40 p.m.; and a 1.3 at 8:23 p.m. {altho
USGS uses UT, these times converted to CST = UT -6}

The quakes were reportedly felt nearby and as far as downtown and
western parts of Enid, according to posts on social media. One
Covington resident said the earlier twin quakes knocked items from the
walls of her home.

Oklahoma has in the past been the location of several earthquakes with
the upsurge of oil and gas activity in the region starting prior to
2010. Temblors have decreased with action from Oklahoma Corporation
Commission and practices undertaken by the industry to curtail
wastewater injection in many places.

In 2020, there were only 36 earthquakes with a magnitude greater than
3.0 throughout the state, with 16 of those in Northwest Oklahoma.``

** U S A. 13565-CW, Feb 6 at 1530, K6FRC, HIFER beacon in Patterson CA

At 2112 I reply: ``Or not! Still at 2112 it`s Main Street Church of
Christ, ignorant self-righteous gospel huxter. Running late? I`m
listening via website live stream, not tried 9265 yet. Sked futurely
dated Feb 7 shows:

03:00P / Fri-2000...Worship At home
04:00P / Fri-2100...Unique Radio
05:30P / Fri-2230...Words of Life - Back to the Bible

So maybe Uniq does not start until next week? Glenn`` --- but then:

``Guess what: when I do tune 9265V direct at 2114 something totally
different with Oz accent. So their stream is not live at all // 9265.
That`ll teach me. Glenn``

Further monitoring: 9265V means the frequency is always wobbling
slightly, unstable transmitter; also had some clix about once a
second, not sure if a transmission defect or QRM; audible up to 9280
but not on the minus side. At 2114 had a discussion about the web.
There was not a break circa 2130 but same program continued. 2137
started playing songs; 2200 WINB ID by Tim, and on to Radio Tatras
International, RTI, from Slovakia, informal discussion but hard to
follow with SW reception declining. At this time there is competition
from `Behaviour Night` on weaker 7490.2 and stronger `VORW` on 9955,
but both of them do webcast. Aussie Tim later replies that the WINB
webcast was supposed to accompany 9265V (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11820, Feb 6 at 0307, JBA carrier presumed 2 x 5910 CRI
relay, but nowhere the bigsig it recently achieved. Compared to much
stronger active RHC fundamentals 11670 and JBM 11850. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 4980, Feb 6 at 0040, JBA carrier, but not WRMI
which has abandoned it; since there are equally JBA carriers from the
Urumqi Four on 5060, 4850 and 4500, i.e. Xinjiang PBS in the morning,
land of Chicom genocide against the Uyghurs. I was going to link to
some more Uyghur music, but instead, about it being suppressed:

``“Eating Hanness”: Uyghur Musical Tradition in a Time of Re-education
--- Amy Anderson and Darren Byler, p. 17-26

Abstract

In February 2019, two major musical performances by residents of the
Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region were widely circulated on Chinese
social media. These two performances, one a Mekit County Harvest Gala
and the other a performance by a Uyghur school teacher from Qumul,
featured Uyghurs dressed in Han cultural costumes performing Beijing
Opera.

Over the past five years, since the “People’s War on Terror” started,
the space for Uyghur traditional song and dance performance has deeply
diminished. Simultaneously, the space for Uyghurs performing Hanness
through Chinese traditional opera and Red songs has dramatically
increased.

Drawing on open source Uyghur and Chinese-language media, ethnographic
fieldwork, and interviews with Uyghurs in diaspora, this article
analyses the changing role of music in Uyghur religious and ritual
life by tracing the way state cultural ministries have dramatically
increased their attempts to separate Uyghur music from its Sufi
Islamic origins in order to produce a non-threatening “permitted
difference” (Schein 2000).

Since 2016, the re-education campaign of the Chinese government on
Uyghur society has intensified this disconnection by promoting an
erasure of even the state-curated “difference” of happy, exoticized
Uyghurs on stage. Han traditional music is now replacing Uyghur
traditional music, which shows an intensification of symbolic violence
toward Uyghur traditional knowledge and aesthetics.

In a time of Uyghur re-education, musical performance on stage has
become a space for political rituals of loyalty to a Han nationalist
vision of the Chinese state.

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: I feel a slight tremor at 1749 UT
February 5, so check USGS immediately. Within a couple minutes it
registers:
magnitude 4.1, 1748:43, 4 km NNW of Lucien OK, 5.0 km deep
but later modified, and accompanied by one earlier and one later from
same tiny town area about 35 km ESE of Enid, neither of which I felt:
magnitude 2.6, 1729:35, Oklahoma, 5.0 km deep
magnitude 4.2, 1748:43, 5 km WNW of Lucien OK, 6.7 km deep *****
magnitude 2.6, 1759:13, 5 km WNW of Lucien OK, 5.0 km deep
Lucien is probably closer to where Richard N Allen, MW DXer lives
outside of Perry; how were those for him? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 6 at 0242, WTWW-2 with rock music, distorted and
very strong S9+40/30 frequency is wobbling unstably. I measure the
parasitic JBA spurs one can`t help but notice in 1-kHz step
bandscanning: 5097.991 and 5072.010, surely matching within margin of
error and/or fundamental could be very slightly high, not measured
directly. O yeah? Why doesn`t anyone else report them? At 0247 there
are some modulation breaks within the music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0517 UT February 6
