Please note and spread the word - for those not on a list where my almost-daily all-band but mainly SW log reports appear -- or for those who are but find this a more convenient archive, weekly merged roundups of all these reports in their original form are posted early every UT Thursday via:

** BELIZE. 28386 USB, Feb 28 at 2309, V3O calling CQ Japan. Call
clearly with fonetix. QRZ.com:
V3O Belize flag Belize, Uwe Dowidat, Mayahill / Belmopan, Belmopan,
Belize -- more about temp op: https://www.qrz.com/db/V3O
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 28 at 0134, R. Rebelde is off again. Something`s
always wrong at wRadioCuba. 4765, R. Progreso, however, is not off
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 28171 CW, Feb 28 at 2306, beacon XE1FAS/B and four dashes
step-down power. Keying a bit rough: surely automated, but originally
may have been hand-keyed. QRZ.com:
XE1FAS Mexico flag Mexico SEGURA WALLS ALEJANDRO, 31 PONIENTE 2926
COL.EL VERGEL, PUEBLA, PU 72410, Mexico

Previously logged several times in 2022, 2023 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Feb 28 at 2300, token English from SNR, S9+20/30
direct, first about leap years and some famous people who died during
them, not specifically on Leap Day. 2302.5 news. 2309 interview about
rare diseases, 6113? of them, many not diagnosed (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960v, Feb 28 at 2300, no signal direct from VOT
English. Checking UTwente at 2333: nothing but Chinese on 5960.000,
XJRTV no longer an understation, std. genocidal denunciation. So is
VOT overrunning on 9610? Not there either, something else weak,
presumably CNR Mongolian from Beijing site. Still no show of VOT
eitherfreq by 2355. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2231 monitoring: confirmed UT
Wednesday February 28 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+20 into Missouri SDR.

Not confirmed Wed Feb 28 at 1527 the secret 1500 on WRMI 9955: at
first I wonder if that`s me at imagination-level in the noise; then
realize it`s off the air, while 9395 & 9455 are still propagating. And
too late to check the webstream. Anyone hear it start at 1500 or on
stream?

Confirmed Wednesday February 28 at 2030 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.001, S9+10 into UTwente.

Also confirmed Wednesday February 28 at 2200 on WBCQ, 7489.949, S7/9+5
into Maryland SDR at 2124 when I set up to record the entire WOR slot:
apparently aired intact unlike last week. Meanwhile, reception direct:
2200 JBA can`t be sure it`s me; 2228 VP but now can tell it`s #2231
with last week`s propagation outlook. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1730 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 3975

** U S A. 15770, Tue Feb 27 at 2000, WRMI going from VOA `Flashpoint
Global Crisis` - tho still on skedgrid as merely `Flashpoint Ukraine`;
into `VORW`. John introes it as for Mon Feb 26 on WWCR 4840! Wrong
file, or incomplete reference? Roughly first half he cites the `news`,
second half into music. Checking because earlier today at 1300, 15770
was reported to be off instead of `Encore` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130+v, Feb 28 at 0718, no signal from WBCQ `All Trump All
The Time`, unusual, supposedly 24/7. Propagation? 6159.9v with TOMBS
is audible. Usually about 5130.3, tho last time I tuned across, closer
to 5130.2. Should be audible daytime into NH SDR: still absent at
1715, but 6160v VG. Tsk2, one can never get enough Drumpf (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 28 at 0019, WTWW-2 is back on after a few days
off, presumably with SFAW in very rapid check. Ditto some 24 hours
later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZOMBIA. 4940, Feb 28 at 0135, Estación 4940 is missing, nor on
later tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. Correcting one frequency typo: 13530 not 12530:
18900, Feb 26 at 2313, weak Chinese, not on 18970, only
other known frequency on band, leading to: Survey of mostly JBA
carriers direct with Doppler flutter, surely CNR1 jammers or possibly
Firedragon, to block Sound of Hope, Feb 26 at 2313-2317: 16160, 16100,
15970, 15920, 14980, 14920, 13920, 13530, 13020. Not in the exact
order tuned; none audible just below 13 MHz. {also should have been
others inband but was checking only way-out-of-band} (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Feb 27 at 2313, RHC S9/+10 but JBM, sup/torted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11740-11780 approx., Feb 27 at 2317 hash sounds somewhat like
DRM at spots, but not this wide. Obviously out of 11760 RHC
transmitter, S9+30/40 and noise also infesting center frequency.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``Cuba's health crisis spawns a surge in the black market for
medicines
Antibiotics selling for 600 to 1,500 pesos, blister packs of Vitamin B
for 450, Bactrim for 400, benzathine penicillin for 1,000 pesos per
vial... Alberto Martínez, La Habana, 23 Feb 2024 - 23:55 CET``
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1708728936_53078.html
One may also subscribe for a new story in English every few days, or
lots more available in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 7295-7300-7305, Feb 27 at 0752, S9+20 of DRM noise, no
doubt the previously identified 0730-0800 from ISSoudun, irregular
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 17570, Feb 27 at 2310, S9+10 YL talk sounds like Cambodian:
yes, KSDA Khmer scheduled this semihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Feb 27 at 2300, I can tell VOT is on direct but
no match for noise level. From 2343 via UTwente, when measured,
S9+25/40 with nothing but music including 2350 horrible Turkish rap?
2353, s/off for 1330 broadcast only, with XJRTV understation quite
audible. 2354 IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs. Chopoff at 2357.4*
uncovering Chinese from EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom
genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems, vs the century-old Ottoman
genocide against Armenians (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2231 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday February 27 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S8/9+10 into Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday February 27 at 1400 on WRMI 9955, S9/+20, no
jamming audible. Next:

1230 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB

** CANADA [and non]. 258 MCW kHz, Feb 26 at 0727, dash and ZSJ, no
doubt about it this time unlike Feb 20 log, per RNA is 500 watts from
Sandy Lake, Ontario; dxinfocentre.com shows power 1000 watts. They
often disagree.

The *real* ZSJ is, or was, naval marine radio on HF from Cape Town,
South Africa. You may play it at the very bottom of:
https://www.radiomarine.org/coast-station-recordings
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 18900, Feb 26 at 2313, weak Chinese, not on 18970, only
other known frequency on band, leading to: Survey of mostly JBA
carriers direct with Doppler flutter, surely CNR1 jammers or possibly
Firedragon, to block Sound of Hope, Feb 26 at 2313-2317: 16160, 16100,
15970, 15920, 14980, 14920, 13920, 12530, 13020. Not in the exact
order tuned; none audible just below 13 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRELAND. 13264 USB, Feb 26 at 2317, VOLMET by YL voice. Shannon
sked 24h here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.95V, Feb 26 at 0710, presumed Hikari FM,
pirate in Arizona or Sonora, finally some barely audible modulation.
Unstable and seems two carrier peaks, neither right on 11515.000
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 267 MCW kHz, Feb 26 at 0729 UT, HET, 25-watt NDB at
HenryEtTa; but better copy tuned to 265 USB. In 2007y someone reported
it on 263. Occasionally noted but not always logged, JBA vs noise
level. RNA and DXinfocentre.com show it the only 267 anywhere! Clear
channel worldwide. City-to-city distance: 201 km = 125 stmi (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday Feb 26 at 2300, token English from SNR, feature
preview and news, good direct; 2310 first item, interview with Iberia,
bilingual publisher, about to come out Irish writers on Spain; second
to be 10th anniversary of death of flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.004, Sun Feb 25 at 2319, S9+40/45 into
UTwente, VOT in `Letterbox` already, host recalling he visited Alabama
and Florida long ago, due to report from Orlando? Someone complains
about how hard it is to find anything about VOT on the TRT website, to
which he has no comment. Also from India, and the last one from
Australia, as time is running out - despite widely variable start and
length and lots of music fill elsewhen; 2328 ``Goodbye dear listeners,
I love all of you.`` After a song, 2333 Letterbox intro/outro theme
played by mistake: something`s always awry at Ankara; more music. 2354
s/off for 1330 broadcast only, only first 6 notes of IS before chopoff
2355* uncovering the CCCCCCI from XJRTV, East Turkistan, std genocidal
denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, Feb 26 at 2309 direct, I can tell VOT
is on but not enough to break the noise level. 2330 into UTwente, when
measured, S9+40/45 music and nothing but more songs until 2354 s/off
and a few sex of IS, chopoff before 2355* uncovering XJRTV, etc., etc.
Was lack of spoken programming Ankara awry or Emirler erroneous?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8992 USB, Feb 26 at 1555 tune-in just as ending message of
``39 characters, Big Time, out``. This is an Emergency Action Message
- or only a test? from USAF Global Communications HFGCS. A barely
legible map in Feb CIDX Messenger shows locations: Hawaii, Elmendorf
AK, West Coast, Offutt NE, Grand Forks ND, Andrews MD, Puerto Rico,
Ascension, South Atlantic[Falklands?], Lajes Azores, Croughton UK,
Sigonella Italy, Diego Garcia, Guam, Yokota Japan. No doubt this from
one of the closest inside the eastern 48.

BTW, we should be especially fond of Diego Garcia, main island of the
BIOT, since our .io groups are HQ there! At least by domain. I was
about to remark, D.G. was discovered by Portuguese, so no accent on
the i - until I found this confuser: ``Diego García de Moguer was a
Spanish explorer who also sailed for the Portuguese Crown later in
life. Wikipedia. Born: 1484, Moguer, Spain. Died: 1544 (age 60 years),
Indian Ocean``. Maybe compromise with grave rather than acute: Garcìa.
But should the c be lithped Castilianwise? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12788 USB, Feb 26 at 2319 marine weather for N Atlantic,
including ``seas`` which means how wavy, by OM voice, VG. EiBi shows
NMG, USCG New Orleans here with several segments such as 2315-2350,
not continuous (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2231 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday February 25 from 2100.5 in IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.997, S8/S9
into UTwente across Europe.

Also confirmed Sunday February 25 at 2255 the 2230 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.004, S9 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 26 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+15 into
reactivated Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 26 from 0359 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.935, S7/S8 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed Monday February 26 at 2043 the 2030 on SW Radio,

** CUBA. 15140, Sun Feb 25 at 1607, RHC in weekly Esperanto, S8/S9
undermodulated, // much better 11760, S9/+5. I bet they still fail to
announce 15140, which tries to be on. Circa 07 UT Sunday, RHC found
nowhere, so likely no Espo at 08. When and where will be the third
broadcast Sunday afternoon? Io ĉiam misas ĉe RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** DENMARK. 25800, Feb 25 at 1606, JBA carrier again from presumed
World Music Radio; if really wanted to hear it, would try some
remotes; but plenty of music already available (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** LIBERIA. 6050, Feb 25 circa 07 UT, JBA carrier in bandscan, surely
this:
``Manuel Méndez, Log in Lugo, NW of Spain, Sangean ATS 909X, cable
antenna, 8 meters: 6050, ELWA Radio, Monrovia, back after 3 days of
absence, *0600-0635, 25-02, open with religious songs in English, at
0616 male, English, ID “ELWA Radio from Monrovia, Liberia..”,
religious comments, male, female, more religious songs. 25432`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2231 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday February 25 at 0100 on WRMI 9955, S9/+20, no jamming audible.

Also confirmed UT Sunday February 25 at 0513 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
VG into nearby SDR but with SSB ACI, contesters? about 6 minutes into
so the 0415v started very late circa 0507.

** VANUATU. 7260, Feb 25 at 0706, RV missing again, nor on 7890, 9960
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 9710, Feb 25 at 0704 VR IS, S7/S9, overcoming noiselevel
of S5/S7, 0705 opening Ukrainian, as scheduled Sundays only until
0800. Note: altho I do not bother with it, the Santa Maria di Galeria
site is not in VC proper, but some distance away otherwise in Italy,
or ``Vatican City Extraterritorial Area`` as they say in MARE. WRTH
does not even make any note of this. Country-counters may squabble
about whether there be two or three radio-countries around Roma. There
used to be a small SW transmitter inside VC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, thoro bandscan on
R75 with internal N/S shortwire as the Wellbrook loop is out of
service, Feb 25 at 0226-0233 UT, by 9-kHz steps one kHz below in USB
tuning: 684, 693, 711, 774-2, 855, 891-2, 963 only 3 kHz from local
KGWA 960, 999, 1044, 1053, 1089, 1098, 1125-2, 1215, 1305, 1314, 1431,
1503.

Unusual for a beat on 891, 140/minute = 2.33 Hz. mwoffsets and mwlist
indicate by power, precision, activity, time and geography, the
station other than Algeria on 890.997 would be IRAN on exactly
891.0000, Radio Dena at Deh Dasht.

Then for a change, I switch to LSB tuning from 1 kHz above the 9/kHz
frequencies, and downward from 0234 UT: this should favor uncovering
some others especially ending in 9, 8 or 7: 1386 only 4 kHz below
local KCRC 1390; 1179, 1125, 1107, 1089, 909, 882, 855, 837, 819, 774,
729, 711, 693, 684, 549, 531 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
