Hauser
DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS completely updated for A24 season:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ANTARCTICA [non]. Correct date for this was Sat Mar 30 of course,
not 31:
15475.98 RC USB, Sat Mar 30 at 2226, NO signal of
LRA36 into Argentine SDR; 2303 recheck something distorted and at
first there seems to be a JBA RC, then just heavy splash from 15480
Chinese. Not in B23 skeds, but HFCC A24 shows CNR Beijing in Chinese
from 2300, 100 kW at 222 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BELIZE. 28258 CW, April 1 at 2210, EEEEEEEEEE VVV DE V31HQ/B
EK57NF. Just about the only beacon on band. Nothing about it on their
QRZ.com page but lots about their shack burning down 3 years ago, and
all the contributors to rebuild:
``V31HQ Belize flag Belize
BARC Headquarter * * * Club - Contest - Event Station * Belize Amateur
Radio Club
Maya Hill Rd, Blackman Eddy, Belmopan POB159, Belize`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 5910-, April 1 at 0124, JBA carrier, presumed Alcaraván
Radio still on, if not 24h, but no match for my line noise level
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 1 at 1524, RHC flanked by spurblobs approx.
plus/minus 3 kHz and much weaker plus/minus approx. 6 kHz. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

Opinion - 'Electricity and Food' is also 'Homeland and Life'
Castroism owes its longevity to preventing the people who oppose it,
and might overthrow it, from organizing and advancing a coherent set
of ideas.
Rafaela Cruz La Habana 27 Mar 2024 - 16:33 CET
Protestors on March 17, 2024 in Santiago de Cuba.

It is difficult to find a revolution among those that have changed the
destiny of a nation, or humanity as a whole, that has not taken shape
based on the agglutinative economic misfortune of human groups only
having in common misery and a lack of hope in the system...
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1711553622_53761.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 12060, Mon April 1 at 1537, S5 YL seems English intonation
but hardly can recognize a word. HFCC shows KSDA, 100 kW at 300
degrees, 1530-1600 English except bod = Tibetan on days 5 and 6 = Thu
& Fri. Hard to imagine Tibetans as Seventh-Day-Adventists, let alone
mainstream Christians. Culture clash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. Re 11620, VOMK missing, Ron Howard replies: ``The
end of the Maldives Voice of the Martyrs Korea --- Hi Glenn - I will
miss the opportunity to listen to the rarely heard Maldivian (Dhivehi)
language. Here is my audio of a typical broadcast (Sept 27, 2023) -
https://app.box.com/s/rconybrcm6jaacpfkbhyd5wr94h1y6nh -- Ron
(Calif.)

"MALDIVES BROADCAST ENDING ON MARCH 31ST, 2024

When this project began, we said that the “enemy was roaring like a
lion”, due to a series of events that almost stopped this project
before it started:

* The Maldives government thwarted the use of a medium-wave signal
directed that would target the Maldives.
* The Maldives increased their internet censorship and surveillance
towards Christian material.
* Our Maldivian radio announcers became worried about the recording
their voices for use on the broadcast and declined to record.
* Audio Bible content in the Dhivehi language, which was originally
promised, was found to be not yet approved for radio broadcast use and
additional Christian content in Dhivehi was hacked and deleted by the
government.
* Our original radio partners decided that they couldn't offer any
additional help or assistance with the project . . . . .

* Recorded and broadcasted the gospel into the Maldives for 731 days
straight (once our broadcast ends on March 31st, 2024)"``

https://vomkorea-com.translate.goog/en/project/maldives-ministry/?_x_tr_sl=ko&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=sc

See that for much more about the obstacles they faced. Also led to
quite a discussion thread on the WOR iog. April DX Fanzine has two
QSLs for 11620 filed as Uzbekistan, tho station says nothing about
site. I`m convinced it cannot be UZB for propagational reasons, more
likely Taiwan or maybe Australia. Now that it`s all over with nothing
to lose, station should come clean and reveal true site! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950 USB, April 1 at 0136, pirate music S9/+10.
These say it`s Outhouse Radio, with some fuzzy OHR SSTVs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127953.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 AM, April 1 at 0137, JBA pirate music. These
say an unID turned into Captain Morgan Shortwave:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127952.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11800, March 31 at 2200, RRI English now here for A24, JBA
direct much weaker than 11785 TURKEY, q.v. But into Maryland SDR it`s
VG, supposedly -65 Hz offset - rx is miscalibrated as UTwente shows
.000 or at most minus one Hz. Maryland puts WWV 15000 minus 82 Hz,
10000 minus 55 Hz! At 2214 `RRI Encyclopedia`; back to Turkey for
mailbag which proves to be a repeat, so I quit that and resume
Romaniaing. `Culture Event` until 2225, `Romanian Without Tears`
language lesson, subject words about farming - many of them are
cognate to English or Spanish. But it`s hard to be sure of all the
proper phonemes without a visible text, reception even more perfect,
recording so repeatable. Over already at 2231, `Music A to Z`
featuring a popular singer from the 70s/80s. Unlike VOT, RRI axually
identifies the music played with info about the performers! 2242 `In
the Spotlight` about a foundation providing Romanian language texts
for Ukrainian refugee children, of which there are 32K in the country,
i.e. with translations I think to help them in schools. 2252 `Focus on
Romania` with a folk tune. 2255 s/off as broadcast for W Europe and
Japan, only. But here we are directly beyond WEu. 2256 IS once and
off, with finesse. Better produxion and English than VOT, and no
genocidal undercurrent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, April 1 at 1534, horrible blob still roaring,
S4/S5 direct. Also at 1945, S9+15 into UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 31 at 2209 direct, NO signal from REE`s A24 NAm
frequency. It was on this morning. No English on Sunday, but better be
back by Monday 2200. Then checking Maryland SDR: 17855 off; 15520 ME
VG off the back S7/S9+5; much weaker on 15390, 17715. And yes, 9690 of
B23 is not on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17715.13 approx., Mon Apr 1 at 1758, VP signal here, 1759
the REE IS JBA as S American beam to start at 1800 weekdays. By 1820
it`s closer to 17715.00. But still *no* signal on 17855 for N America!
One transmitter OFF; or on some unfound extraneous frequency? That
leaves 15520 our best chance backwards from ME beam. At 1825, UTwente
finds VG S9+20 17715.013; VG S9+15/20 15520.001; G S9+10 15389.992; NO
17855, nor possibly typoed 17885.

Mon April 1 at 2200 direct, still no 17855 for the first English
broadcast of the season! We could make do with 15520 to ME off the
back, S9+10/20 but noisy where the topic previewed is women in Spain
in engineering. 17715 for SAm is S9/+10 but fluttery and echoey. 15390
for Africa JBA. At 2215 I measure on the R75 without a correxion
factor: 17715.047; ASAP via UTwente at 2228, S6/S7 in Synch displays
17715.012 --- so at 17+ MHz, my rx reads 35 Hz high (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785, Sunday March 31 at 2200, A24 VOT English
is VG direct, S9+15/25, much better as to be expected than ex-5960 in
B23 at 2300. 11780 Brasil is not on, so no ACI thence: I`d think they
would surely be on for `A Voz do Brasil` hour. Now for convenience I`m
on the Maryland remote. 2216 ending repeat of `Weekly Analysis` about
Egyptian œconomy, music. 2222 TRT Vorld promo. 2223 `Letterbox`: host
is very sad because one of his best friends died yesterday after
battling cancer for 15 years: Therefore, this is a repeat of last
week. We`re sad for him too, but glad to hear something of a
humanizing element on such a broadcast! But tune-out this repeat. It`s
too convenient now to tune over to the RRI`s simul English 15 kHz away
on 11800, see ROMANIA. After it closes at 2256 I recheck 11785 and
it`s already off too, no extra German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 17815, April 1 at 1523, S7/S9 strong sig, language? HFCC
now updated April 1 says VOT in Turkish, 13-16, 310 degrees to WEu, so
also NAm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, April 1 at 2202, VOT English, S9+20/30 direct but
with horrible squeal, blobs roughly 11783.65 & 11786.35. ANF on the
R75 doesn`t help much: needs a sharp single het, not a blob. Good
excuse to dispense with monitoring it today. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler. Romania instead on 11800? JBA carrier direct.
Spain instead? q.v., our frequency is still AWOL. Or as Wolfgang
Büschel puts it:

``TRT at 22.00 UT April 1st noted on 11785 kHz, to ITU zones
4,7,8,9,11N,27,28W. TERRIBLE audio modulation performance, the FAULTY
Emirler unit in use on that channel, 9 x strings of 100 Hertz apart
distance seen / visible on either sideband, mean carrier 11785 kHz
string, = plus 18 x 100 Hertz distance apart strings in total,
powerhouse signal. 73 wolfie df5sx`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 13635, re my previous VOT log, published as 13625 in the
NASWA Flashsheet! Not my mistake, editor must have changed it, why?
Copying and pasting would prevent such errors (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2236 monitoring: Not confirmed
Sunday March 31 at 2000 UT, new summer timing, on IRRS via AM Italia,
1323 kHz, no signal into UTwente, nor nearby Noale SDR. Like Friday
March 29, off the air; what`s wrong? Not on LW 207 nor MW 918 either
-- but confirmed on IRRS webcast https://www.nexus.org/mp3/

Confirmed Sunday March 31 at 2130 UT, new summer timing, on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.001, S9/+5 into UTwente; also confirmed // 6160.000 but
JBA S7, must be skipping over, and with dittering so bandwidth must be
below 7 kHz. Recheck UTwente at 2206 after SWR is really off, weak
6159.929, must be WBCQ TOMBS.

Confirmed UT Monday April 1 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into Maryland
SDR. But cut to music at 0056 before I`m finished, 0059 sounds Arabic
bit, 0059.5 ID, 0100 TOMBS.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 1 from 0306 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.932, JBA into UTwente which I check for accurate readout, since
Maryland SDR calibration is way off; but at UTw heavy ACI from Turkey
English now on 6165.005 not to N America. Late start since JL was in
no hurry to gotta-go.

Also confirmed Monday April 1 at 1945 the 1930 on SW Radio, Germany,
into UTwente, S9+5/10 on 6160.001, S9+10/15 on 3975.001. Next:

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), March 31 at 2258, WBCQ webcast, I almost forgot to
check this Sunday the ex-UBMP/FTIOM hour, as I was monitoring Spain,
Turkey and Romania, qqvv. from 2200, but just in time to hear a very
lofi rendition of `Easter Parade` tune, from some old movie? Unknown
what program, YL outro as this *was* an available timeslot at 7-8 pm!
timing an hour off; and `Plain Old Doug` show would be at 9 pm = 01
UT?? 2300 UT correctly into `Le Show` which I can listen to as long as
CBSTV is overrunning a stupid ballgame before `60 Minutes` past 2330
until 2343:

First story is about evidence that Russia is `Targeting Americans` as
in `Habana Syndrome`, microwave or ultrasound weapon, which has pained
American officials elsewhere including inside USA. Transcript, also
audiovideo should be availablized:

** ALGERIA. 17600, March 31 at 1445, fair signal, Ifrikya FM still
here in A24. Full sked, needlessly long, one hour at a time, with all
familiar frequencies, maybe no changes at all from B23:
https://new.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A24&broadc=TDA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98, March 30 at 2359, algo here into Argentine
SDR, gone at 0000* March 31 - normal closing time for LRA36: trouble
is, mostly absent during random chex previous sesquihour, as in
previous report, supposedly from *2200 on Saturdays only (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ASCENSION. 9440, March 31 at 0630, S8/9+20, African language
mentions Gaza, BBC. Hausa now sked 0629-0700, 250 kW, 65 degrees. See
also UKQOGBANI [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 5910-, March 31 at 0632, no signal from Alcaraván Radio.
Has anyone heard it lately? B23 had been blocked 03-05 by CRI via
Cuba, but that`s reverted to 9790 for A24. HFCC shows nothing else
entire night hours on 5910; but ``reserved`` 24 h for IRDR via Vatican
placeholder (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Re yesterday`s report: ``As mentioned several weeks ago, RHC
Arabic is Sundays only (French is Monday to Saturday). Temporary
situation? Right now (1808) [March 31] Arabic is aired on 15140.
Jean-Michel Aubier, France`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 // better 11760, Sunday March 31 at 1520, weekly
Esperanto from RHC reconfirmed, both only poor to fair (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 17735, March 31 at 1445, Chinese dramatic
narration, S8/S9 with flutter. HFCC A24 shows CRI in Chinese at 13-16,
500 kW, 308 degrees via Kashgar for western Europe, but carries on
well USward. From the land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uyghurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 11590, March 31 at 1456, S6/S8 in Turkic language with
keyword ``Radiosa``, address partially pronounced in English but can`t
copy reveal. A24 HFCC shows KTWR in Kazakh, daily 1445-1500, 250 kW at
305 degrees. Beware, some `KTWR` broadcasts are really via Madagascar,
but apparently not this one (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, March 31 at 1520, NO signal from V of
Martyrs Korea; had been extremely reliable from secret site, must have
moved for A24. I have queried HQ, WTF,K, no point in even asking about
site. WRTH 2024 frequency page 722 shows TWN as if this were certain;
page 554 under KOREA SOUTH says 11620ust - which means Taiwan, exact
site unknown. However, header mentions only sites Kununurra and
Tashkent, but all other broadcasts tagged tac. Some continue to claim
this is Uzbekistan as in Aoki, not EiBi, but I say over and over, Uz
is unbelievable propagationally here in deep North America. Editors,
don`t you dare file this log under Uzbekistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 31 at 0634, S9+10 direct, noise blob is back. No
trace of any program audio if it were mixing by ORTM, nor externally
jammed. Last night there was nothing; sometimes ORTM alone OK (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13690, March 31 at 0645, English at S9+20/30, SSOB.
New frequency for RNZP, per HFCC at 06-10, 50 kW each at 325 and 35
degrees. But own sked shows Pacific only = 35 degrees, and at
0559-0858 only, preceded by 17675, proceeded by 11725 - and then from
1259, 7440 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Heavy tropo blob over OK and vicinity, March 31 at 1511
UT, so DTV bandscan finds lots of BAD signals on `empty` channels; RF
28 decoding with ION, so KTPX Okmulgee. RF14 not decoding but PSIP
label 8-1 ABC barely visible; and a BAD signal on RF19 which is
extremely unusual vs KAUT OKC, our only ATSC-3 signal which I can`t
see or even detect via the ATSC-1 STB. RF 22, KOKI ``23`` Tulsa also
in briefly.

RF 14, 8-1, ABC is surely KTUL Tulsa, which also has the same
5-channel lineup on RF 24 which is blocked here by KOKH ``25`` OKC.
Rabbitears.info shows 24 is axually a lowpower relay in McAlester,
which is roughly 75 miles to the south - so why in the world does it
not have its own callsign?? IIRC, KTUL used to be on RF10 but got rid
of yuk VHF.

RF 19 must be KOTV Tulsa, which we are much more likely to see on RF
26 --- NO! 19 KOTV is really a low-power relay also in McAlester: same
question as for KTUL. No way that is going to mess up KAUT OKC, but
there are no full-powers elsewhere in OK on RF 19, just a translator
in Altus. Beyond that would have to search/guess it`s from adjacent
KS, MO, AR or TX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 31 at 1459, horrible roarer still here
in A24, S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 15769.96 approx., March 31 at 0650, RSI in Spanish,
S7/S9, off-frequency says my NRD, unusual for WRMI. But UTwente at
1652 check shows only 15769.997. Yes, WRMI-9 with System H daily at
0630-0700 RSI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 31 at 1447, REE Spanish, S9/+5, confirmed on
new NAm frequency for A24, ex-9690, which was totally useless over an
all-day path, they never seem to figure out, B-season after B-season.
Now we must hope that 17855 will hold up at least until 2230 over
partial night-path English M/W/F at 2200. Now only stronger signal on
band is Martisky on 17865. REE also on weaker 15520 for ME. For Af
registered alternatives 15360, 15385, 15390 none confirmed yet (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 13635, March 31 at 0643, S7/S9 of plaintive flutish music.
TRT Turkish now A24 sked 06-13, SSOB except for NZ. 500 kW, 310
degrees from Emirler for W Europe, but NAm is directly beyond. 13635
had been the 1330 English frequency in B23, now 1230 on 17620 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K Q O G B A N I [non]. 9915 & 9410, March 31 at 0626 & 0630,
BBCWS VG on reactivated traditional channels for A24, 9915 slightly
better at S8/9+5 direct, news headlines on halfhour. Nothing on 12095.
Latest HFCC as of March 31 at 1605, is still dated March 27! 9915 is
scheduled 06-07 only, half-power 125 kW, 65 degrees from ASCENSION. So
is 9410, but 27 degrees; and BBC English on 9410 also at 05-06; and
via PHT Philippines at 10-12, 250 kW at 200 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULE, now fully updated for
A24:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

** UZBEKISTAN. 15474.8 approx., March 31 at 1451, VP S5 algo. Such
offfrequenciness smax of Tashkent, and sure`nuff. HFCC shows `15475`
ENC with unspecified programs in Korean, Japanese, at 1300-1357,
1430-1500, 100 kW at 68 degrees from TAC. Aoki & EiBi had nothing on
15475 in B23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 9710, March 31 at 0628, S6/S9 liturgy in listed Ukrainian,
VR registered 0605-0700 Sundays only. At 0638 found same on 11815,
S4/S7. To my ear, the ``harmony`` sounds off-key. HFCC shows 9710 250
kW at 54 degrees; 11815 250 kW, 62 degrees from SMG (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 21490, March 31 at 1442, JBA signal is the OSOB. Nothing
in A24 HFCC as of March 27. In B23, EiBi & Aoki had CNR1 jamming and
SOH at 23-15: of course would never be in any HFCC. Maybe, tho
propagation unlikely at this hour. Jammer site could well be western
`China` for skip distance into more populous east (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULES
updated for A24 and DST in Europe
will be available by 0400 UT March 31:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

** ANTARCTICA [non]. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Mar 31 at 2226, NO signal of
LRA36 into Argentine SDR; 2303 recheck something distorted and at
first there seems to be a JBA RC, then just heavy splash from 15480
Chinese. Not in B23 skeds, but HFCC A24 shows CNR Beijing in Chinese
from 2300, 100 kW at 222 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 15034 USB, March 30 at 1513-1518+, Trenton Military with at
least 5 minutes straight of `no report received` from several Canadian
locations only, even Trenton itself. At least the timechex are
correct. It would be interesting to know exactly by what routing
reports are received, and where and how the failure(s) may occur
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 30 at 1820, RHC in French, with squeal, only S7
into Maryland SDR and zero signal into UTwente. WRTH 2024 showed
Arabic at 1900-1930 on 15140, which one would expect to find at 1800
during DST, since we know that English has shifted from 2000 to 1900.
Homepage also says ``Ahora Reproduciendo Arabe`` but we hear Spanish
instead, not French either. So is there any Arabic now on RHC?
Certainly Arabic website:
https://www.radiohc.cu/ar
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 30 at 0619, NO signal direct from ORTM, no noise
blob either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, March 30 at 2305, no signal of VOT into
UTwente, but *2315.7 Chinese from EAST TURKISTAN chops on. May be
ordinary TRT failure, but I should have checked 11785 after 2200 in
case they got a jump on A24. That`s wherewhen English to us should be,
or not, for the next 7 months. HFCC shows no CCI or ACI, but Brasil`s
bigsig on 11780 is never registered (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, March 30 at 1816, music as I tune in, cuts off air
immediately. Also at 1841, huge open carrier on and off quickly, into
Maryland SDR. Must be WTWW testing. But not on air at 2115 check,
despite supposed start at *2000. It is on at 2340 blasting hymn (Glenn

** JAPAN. 28433 USB, March 29 at 2208, JG2KJU calling CQ DX North
America. QRZ.com: ``JG2KJU Japan flag Japan, Masayuki "Masa" Mori, 3-3
Minami ikaruga-cho, Yokkaichi-city, Mie-pref. 510-0008, Japan``
Some nice photos on his page:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6967.64 AM approx., March 29 at 0356, music JBA vs
high line noise level HLNL at S9+25! Per this, it`s Stern Radio,
6967.666v, including from station itself:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127742.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Mar 29 at 2300, token English from SNR, VG
S9+20/40 into Maryland SDR, preview to be about how Holy Week is
celebrated, from the archives. I`ve heard enough already about the
activities of wacky religionists; apparently going to skip any news --
good, TGIF, but first the A24 frequencies again, failing to specify
anything about English, i.e. will be an hour earlier at 2200 and still
on thrice a week only. New listeners will have to find out for
themselves, or give up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Mar 29 at 2300, VOT VG into UTwente,
nice unID music at 2312 after `Review of the Turkish Press`, 2317
`Weekly Analysis` by John --- about how Arab countries have helped
bail Egypt out of its economic situation. 2322 multi-lingual ID filler
reel, music. 2330 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2337 `Turkish
Folk Tales` about a rich brother and a poor brother. Punch line: how
seawater is salty. 6CI undercurrent. 2344 ``with-you-every-hour``
promo. 2345 `That`s Why` with the badax, smoking causing cancer,
repeat of repeat. 2350 s/off with all-wrong English sked. Something`s
always awry at Ankara. 2352 IS two or three times till chopped at
2252.5, uncovering XJRTV, std denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2236 monitoring: confirmed Friday
March 29 at 2030 on WRMI webcast only, 9955 not yet on.

NOT confirmed Fri Mar 29 at 2130-2133 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz.
Recording via UTwente while I napped, only a weak Qur`an signal,
likewise when I set it up before 2100 and recheck 2228. Per MWlist,
the only possibility is R. Tabriz, Jofra, Iran, 50 kW, normally off at
this hour but no doubt extended for Ramadan, tho still a bit early for
breakfast. So no chance to check for Italia on 918 or 207 kHz, but not
heard theres for many months.

Confirmed Friday March 29 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, JBA direct vs HLNL,
but finally recognize a few words from #2236. Next:

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` WBCQ check, into Maryland SDR, Fri Mar 29 from
2348: 3265 off. 5130.253 ATATT. 6159.931 TOMBS. 7489.948 FKB. 9330.000
WLCR PP. 0000 UT Sat Mar 30, 5130+ & 7490- switch to `AAAWWW` and it`s
immediately clear as live, since right into `Good` Friday evangelism;
unneeded. Recheck near the end, reads a bunch of pirate names and
frequencies from FRW, no further details (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re 5085 // 9395, ``That voice you heard on the radio,
claiming that the CIA/MI6/Ukrainian intelligence was behind the Moscow
theater attack may have been Joe Kent, MAGA candidate for Washington's
4th Congressional district. He was apparently making the rounds on the
pod/talk circuit yesterday, flogging the "Rootin' for Putin" party line:
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/gop-candiate-us-ukraine-may-be-involved-moscow-attack_n_66061c4ce4b0e166b2cd8ce9
The only thing scarier is how close he came to winning that seat in
the last election. Regards, Chuck Albertson, Seattle`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 900, March 29 at 0721 UT, just as I tune across, English ID
as WKDA, and 98.3. This is Lebanon, TN, U1 5000/136 watts in NRC AM
Log, but shows FMs on 101.9 and 98.9, NOS/C&W format.
Radio-locator.com shows Spanish! Radio Luz, also on 101.9. WTFDA FM DB
does not show WKDA relayed by anything, but there is a 98.3 in
Lebanon: W252DU relaying WCOR-1490, 100 watts, 87m, format Country,
slogan FM 98.9 Real Country, //WANT 98.9. What a confusing situation
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13563.5 CW approx., March 29 at 2210, HIFER beacon RQ
again and JBA: all I hear is the ID over and over. This time I search
the UDXF iog: far too many hits on those two letters, nothing to do
with this or correlating with frequency. Frequency alone leads to lots
of number-station logs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
