Monday, September 12 2022

** ALGERIA. 17600, Sept 11 at 2208, S2/S3 of secular-sounding Arabic
talk, no doubt TDA, and the OSOB = only signal on band, since on
Sunday 17855 Spain is already off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Sept 11 at 2214, S6/S9 of dead air when RHC is
supposed to be Frenching; 11850 Spanish is JBM with JBA plus/minus 10
kHz parasitic spurs. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Unknown if
English succeeded at 2300; a while ago someone reported 11880 in
Spanish instead of French here after 2200. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Sept 12 at 0607, RHC English S9+10/20 with humwhine;
6100, S9+20/30 JBM English; all others off including 5040. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Sept 12 at 0608 check, VON is OFF.

7255-, Sept 12 at 1734, VON is ON, signature minus 66/69 Hz offset =
7254.934 to .931, English talk about Nigeria, hard to follow despite
S9/+10 into Canary SDR, squeal, lots of storm noise from N Morocco
into SE Spain and N Algeria; and 2ACI from 7265, much louder CRI
Russian pontificating via Urumqi, East Turkistan, std denunciation.
AMNarrow or LSB helps a bit but still squealy. Recheck at 1757, VON is
OFF, supposed to run another hour in English and after that Fulfulde
vs heavy ChiCom CCI not 2ACI. VON may be cutting off and on
erratically should I have cared to keep on it. But by 1817 recheck,
the H2Ofall is blank, as Peter, EA8BFK = DJ9PC must have recaptured it
for his own hamming as per standard warning. 1907 it`s back, nothing
but CRI Turkish, huge S9+10/25 and almost on-frequency. Hard to
believe this be all the way from Kunming instead of E Turkistan.

SDR location is the CI of Fuerteventura. Antenna is ``80m Loop`` --
measuring 80 metres, or peaking on the 80m band? It worx well anyway
on 40m (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920 USB, Sept 11 at 2220, rock music S5/S6. Several
reports also as unID, between 2143 and 2225 at least:
Some request QSL anyway; if forthcoming, would it then be IDed, or
``QSLing your unID...``? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, Sept 12 at 0045, hard rock, some DJ?
talkovers unreadable; 0125 quick ID as Radio --something, back to
music. Many logs here as Sycko Radio, not exactly at 0125 tho:

BTW at 0051 a noise burst of about 10 seconds, probably RF
auto-ignition of my nearest streetlight circa sunset which was at
0045; but not confirmed at visible wavelengths -- i.e. I did not
hasten to look out a window (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.5 AM, Sept 11 at 2202, S8.5/S9 of JBM music but
this time matchable to 95.7 KXLS ``Lahoma`` Enid, fourth known station
local CB pirate has rebroadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2155 monitoring: tnx to Vern who
explains without my asking what happened UT Sunday circa 0315 UT: ``Hi
Glenn, This is to let you know that WOR 2155 did not air in the 22:15
CDT slot on Sept. 10. An area wide power outage from 21:25 to 23:55,
caused by a severe lightning thunderstorm in the area. It caused
WA0RCR to be off air during that time. Operation did not resume until
23:56 CDT. Vern Jackson`` -- I wish other affiliates would do that.

Confirmed Sunday September 11 at 2005, the 2000 on AM Italia, 1323 kHz
only, S9+5/18 well atop musical understation. Yesterday 918 was also
on and much better into same nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 12 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/9+5
into Maryland SDR with usual noise burst for a few seconds at start.

Also confirmed ENDING at 0259 UT Monday Sept 12 on WBCQ Area 51,
6160-, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR, and right into Hobart Radio
International, both half an hour early! Larry Will says sorry, it was
a one-time automation mixup. BTW, HRI program was dated 23 July - 13
August, i.e. was supposed to repeat week after week over a monthlong
period, now long past. Next WORs:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Sept 12 at 0612, this WRMI is S9+20, distorted and
splattering again, as far down as 9410 marring BBC. Something`s odd at
Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 12 at 1523 check, WLCR/WBCQ is still AWOL at
least during this hour. What does WLCR own sked say?

9330, nonstop 24h including nothing but English 1100-2400, all at 253
degrees, yet specifying different targets: Central/West USA at 11-14;
Canada/Upper Mid-West USA at 14-17; East/Central USA at 17-24.

Why 253 degrees? I had not realized until tracking it on my NGS Globe
with geometer, that it`s aimed right at Enid! Thus WLCR has been
dedicated from the outset to convincing ME that the World is flat!!
And incidentally that there is some wacky deity, ``Preparing for
Yahuwah`s Earthly Kingdom, Established at Yahushua`s Imminent
Return!`` -- Y & Y, what`s the diff? Guess I have not been paying
attention, but ``don`t spell me Yahweh!``. Cf. WMLK and Station YHWH.
Anyhow, no one is in a better position than I to divine whether 9330
be on the air or not during all those hours.

253 degrees also crosses near Detroit, out of USA east of El Paso, and
out of Norteamérica across BCS. Eventually it hits Tahiti, and New
Zealand. This is slightly beyond the nominal azimuth of all the
``classic`` WBCQ antennas, 245 degrees as in FCC, while 9330 has a
wide variety of other angles registered, totally different from own
current sked. Still nothing but 9330, no other imaginary frequencies
contemplated as in original plan, since they still haven`t figured out
how to QSY.

For a while they were compensating for this by hiring some time
elsewhere, still IDing as if WBCQ, but has anyone heard those lately:
current HFCC shows Spaceline, Sofia, Bulgaria for Allan H Weiner:
Perhaps only one at a time, or none: 07-12 13840 & 17520, 07-15 15780,
all multilingual, daily, 250 kW at 156 degrees to CIRAFs 38,39,48,47E
= NE, E and C Africa from Libya to Sudan to Kenya, and Turkey thru
Arabian Peninsula, of course including Egypt HQ of the cosmetix
magnate instigator, an alien who could not own a US SW station
directly. What`s his name? Lotsa luck finding it at
with weasely generalities. New Jerusalem, really? (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. RF 27, KFOR-TV OKC ``4`` with premiere of `NBC News Daily`,
Sept 12 at 1800 UT. This hour replaces the soapera `DOOL` which has
been banished to Peacock after countless decades on real air. Opening
gives time of 2 pm in the east, 11 am in the west, --- and 1 pm in St
Louis!!! Incredible, a national coastal-based network acknowledging
that there be anything such as a different timezone in the great
Central US. Will they ever mention Denver, or Phœnix? Evidently it`s
running live everywhere, rather than 3-hour delay to PDT, so must
require some other program-juggling.

This fortuitously coincides with EIIR* super-coverage destined to last
at least another week, but by 1808 already moved on to T**** and many
other topix. Some of same anchors, but no, not on MSNBC too. Let`s
hope it continue to cover the news broadly with twice as much time M-F
as `Nightly` which is airing before sundown in most of the country. At
least here, confronts `The Talk` on CBS, and an hour after `GMA3` on
ABC, hardly hard news there.

NBC provides 1822 & 1852 cutaways used for local weather, hostessed by
the very pregnant meteorologiste Emily Sutton;
She`s also on the pre-sunrise shift, #2 only to Mike Morgan in
primetime 4 pm+. Enid`s low this morning was 49, whew! (Glenn Hauser,

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 12 at 0610, RV is S7/S8 vs CODAR, 2 x 3966+,

Sunday, September 11 2022

** CHINA. 13530, 13130, 13020, Sept 11 at 1457, JBA carriers, the
usual trio if any from CNR1 jammers against Sound of Hope (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 6017.012, Sept 11 at 0706, JBA music vs jamming bleed,
from 6030? Presumably the lately reported pirate, which was already
identified 5 months ago by Rafael Rodríguez R. as Organización Radial
el Prado, in Palermo, Magdalena (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100 et al., Sunday Sept 11 at 0708, no signals from any RHC
on 6 or 5 MHz, when Esperanto is supposed to air. A hopeless
situation. The Sunday 1500 broadcast also must be missing, since at
1456 & 1500 chex, its only known frequencies, 11760 & 15140 are both
OFF. Still on is 15230, VP undermodulated presumably Spanish.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 10 at 2159, R. Cairo, S9+25/35 into UTwente
but extremely distorted with humwhine, supposedly English. Something`s
always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 11 at 0646, no signal from R. Kiribati JBA
carrier, tending to confirm Ron Howard`s suggestion that it may be
silent on local Sunday nights. He could also not hear it this date.

Date correct, omitted previously: 846, Sept 9 at 0615, JBA carrier,
from R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 11 at 0624, VON is absent direct.

7255- also absent at 1744 into Canary SDR with heavy storm crashes
only some JBA signal within a few Hz of 7255, probably China. But at
1753 has cut on at minus 67/68 Hz offset with some squeal vs talk
about Nigeria in English at S9/+10, still heavy crashes all over
Morocco, northern Algeria. 1824 recheck, off again (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Sept 11 at 0710, JBA presumed SIBC, with
5025 Cuba absent, but carrier should still have been detectable.

Martin Hadlow says SIBC is offering a special eQSL for correct reports
on its 70th anniversary date Sept 23 only, on SW or MW 1035, to
sibcnews@solomon.com.sb I have one from the original VQO long ago on
5960. 5020 hours are nominally 05-12 UT but Ron Howard often hears it
for two or three hours later. Nominal daytime frequency until 0500,
9545, has not been reported for a long time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 11880, Sept 11 at 1458, S5/S6, TWR music box IS, ID
seems axually to say ``ESwátini``, 1500 into language, listed Somali
daily to 1530, Sundays -1545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.007, Sept 10 at 2200, VOT English starting, VG into
UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE. (7730), circa 0500 UT, UR1 via WRMI with `Ukraine:
Security Issue` war reports, as copied later from website. BTW, the 5
September edition is missing from the archive; was there something
wrong with it? It still exists if you use this direct link as in my
Roundup covering that date, with my as always incomplete notes:

I`ve already reported on Sept 6, Day 195, and Sept 7, Day 196.

For Sept 8, Day 197:

including: U continues counteroffensive, 30 strixe launched. R command
post destroyed. Almost 640 Rs KIA, highest daily total so far, in all
more then 51K. High alert along BR border. In Mariupol R continues
preps for show trial of Azov defenders, also civilians. UN mission to
arrive in a Donetsk village to investigate R attack. After 6 weeks, R
returned body of British volunteer, tortured and murdered? body is
mutilated, needs forensic investigation. Companion is still in
captivity. US has evidence that Putin admin officials are in charge of
occupied areas, war crime. Hundreds of thousands of Us deported to R.
US SOS Blinken arrived in Kyiv, $ 2 billion aid package for U and
neighbors in Europe announced.

For Sept 9, Day 198: oh, oh, the link for that really goes back to
Sept 7 and if you change the 7 to 9 it`s unfound. O well (Glenn

``Classical music
Last night of the Proms cancelled out of respect for Queen

After cancellation of Thursday evening’s event, BBC announces final
two concerts of the eight-week season will not go ahead
Last modified on Fri 9 Sep 2022 16.45 EDT

The BBC has announced that both Friday and Saturday’s Proms have been
cancelled. Saturday would have been the Last Night, the traditional
celebration that concludes the eight-week classical music festival
that takes place predominantly in the Royal Albert Hall.

Although the Last Night has been modified in response to public events
(the programme was changed in 1997 after the death of Diana Princess
of Wales and in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks) this is the first time
since the second world war that the final concert has not taken place
at all.

Thursday night’s concert – the first of two due to feature the
Philadelphia Orchestra – was also called off only half an hour before
the event. An announcement was made at 7 pm, and with much of the
audience already arriving at the venue, the orchestra instead played
the National Anthem and Elgar’s Nimrod. The Royal Box remained empty
and the curtain behind the seats was closed as a mark of respect.

Later that evening the BBC announced that the season’s two remaining
Proms would also be cancelled “as a mark of respect”. Saturday’s Prom
was to have featured soprano Lise Davidsen and cellist Sheku
Kanneh-Mason with Dalia Stasevska conducting the BBC Symphony

Many people on social media questioned the decision and saw it as a
missed opportunity to use the Last Night as a musical tribute to the

The event was due to be broadcast live on BBC Two and its second half
on BBC One as well as on BBC Radio 3 and across the world.`` (Glenn

** U S A. ND Beacon scan, Sept 11 at 0649-0658 UT, MCW in kHz:

420, PK, 25 watts in Olathe / Herbb KS. Heard equally well first tuned

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2155 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday September 11 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S6/S9+25 into Maryland SDR,
starting with self-imposed noise.

NOT confirmed UT Sunday September 11 at 0322 or anytime later past
0453 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, because it`s OFF the air as monitored by
nearby remote, with heavy storm crashes; indeed there is Blitz right
over the St Louis area. The first airing was already confirmed. Next:

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 11 at 1502, WBCQ/WLCR absent again, tho appears
to be active at various other dayparts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Sept 11 at 0704, this WRMI is off. O, the skedgrid
dated Sept 9 shows WRMI-10 at 22-04 only; while WRMI-4 is also on 5800
never. Both 160 degrees like 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5980, Sept 11 at 0705, JBA carrier, unlikely to be the
leapfrog mixing product which 5890 & 5935 WWCR normally provide
weekends only, unless it has been almost suppressed. But nothing else
is known at this hour to EiBi & Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Sept 11 at 0709, RCM WEWN Spanish is again/still
absent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555 USB, Sept 11 at 1455, WJHR Milton FL is audible with
gospel huxter peaking S8 vs noise level of S7. Normally inaudible here
yet when others hear it, as we need some HF sporadic-E boost at its
too-close distance, like now with 15825 WWCR inbooming instead of JBA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9940 & 9475 & 5830 & 5085, Sept 11 at 1504, NO WTWWs
anywhere despite being Sunday morning prime churching time. JBA
carrier however on 9940 which would be CNR1 jamming and/or RFA
Mandarin via Kuwait, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 11 at 0623, R. Vanuatu still audible here on 2
x 3966+ with music vs. CODAR. At 0659 it`s already switched to the
other set: 8620.377, S2/S4; 12960.567, S2/S3; 4310.189, JBA. Each
measured independently but very close harmonic matches (Glenn Hauser,

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat Sept 10 tuning Argentine remote
from 1439, nothing yet. SDR thinx I am in Amarillo TX, IP confusion?
Also Gary Pence in Dallas, someone in Hamburg. LRA36 cuts on air *1454
with sufficient S6/S7 music; 1502 canned standard sign-on with 4
languages, staff list, ``Nacional, la radio publica``. 1503 Esperanza
themesong. 1507 historical bit mentioning Alasca and Groenlandia. 1511
song. 1515 ID ``su compañía``, then ``live`` YL chat. One of them is
out sick. Not sure of program number mentioned but should have been
#20; geo coords; Base founded 17 dic 1952.

Mentions ``viernes, 9 de setiembre``, so the missing Wed 7 Sept
broadcast must have been on Friday instead when I did not check for
it, nor anyone? 1520 multi-platform contact info starting with phone
numbers, too fast and not repeated: give us a break if you want
contacts. 1521 birthday greeting to someone who has completed another
year; 1523 song but chopped off air at 1524* and never comes back! Yet
another transmitter failure, why? And why won`t/don`t they ever turn
it back on? I wonder if it only be sporadic electrical fluid. Yes,
it`s off: always a good idea to recheck the SDR in case it have been
inadvertently knocked off frequency.

Remotely possible they tried again circa 1800, as once publicized for
Sats, but not checked until 1922, nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 9 circa 2115, no signal direct from R. Cairo;
nor any at 2200 check into UTwente, rather some loud clicking from
something else. Something`s amiss at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Sat Sept 10 at 1853 tune-in via Canary SDR, R. Mali,
S7/S9+5, already in weekly English that I can scarcely understand, so
heavy are the accents of the alternating W & M scriptreaders. Storm
crashes from all over Morocco, some blaaps and running water QRM, some
ACI from 5990 unless avoided. Finished 1906, French ID, music (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 10 at 0646, VON is on; almost sounds like
English intonation rather than Hausa, but too sleepy to concentrate.
Might be something to do with EIIR*.

7255-, Sept 10 at 1853, no VON signal into Canary SDR. Not checked
earlier but I suppose no English from 1630 today (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** OKLAHOMA. 27185 approx., Sept. 10 at 1915 UT, undermodulated music
and ``The Hawk`` ID, on SW caradio in motion in Enid; one of its
memories is programmed for this CB channel. Once again, the pirate
relay of 97.7 KHRK Hennessey -- only 3.9 kW ERP so needs some help?
No, already blasts into nearby Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 95.1, Sept 10 circa 1850 UT on caradio a few blox W of
downtown Enid, open carrier vs the two weaker stations in KS and OK:
not unusual to encounter such a mystery, perhaps someone`s RF feeder
in a car left on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 18, KOPX OKC, I`m looking for NEWSY on 62-7, morning
of Sept 10, but it`s ShopLC instead! Whew, lineup has been rearranged
with NEWSY still there but on 62-6. The complete octostation:

62-8, HSN
62-7, ShopLC
62-6, NEWSY
62-5, TruReal
62-4, Grit
62-3, CourTV
62-2, Bounce
62-1, ION
So it seems the secondary ION channel has been eliminated. I was going
to notify RabbitEars about this, but they already have it; maybe it
has been at least a week since I last sought NEWSY.

KOPX is fortunately among the OKC stations always available thru
rooftop antenna, but not my rabbitears. NEWSY, at least, is anti-cable
by design. Info:

DA pattern has 8 equally spaced peaks and valleys around 360 degrees:
Max 200 kW, Min 108.63, Avg 140.43; 1532 feet HAAT surely helps.

My STB remembers when it was still on RF 50 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Sept 9 at 2200, REE token English, to NAm VG into
Maryland; Justin Coe previews feature will be his interview with
bluesman Corey Harris, which starts at 2214. He must have a huge
archive of such stuff from his Ruta 61 show. US 61 runs up the western
edge of Mississippi east of the River, into Memphis; thence crosses
over to west of River in Arkansas, all the way thru Missouri, Iowa,
similar to I-55 as far as St. Louis. Crosses River from Dubuque into
Wisconsin at its SW corner but soon back across into Minnesota as far
as Twin Cities. It originally ran thru Duluth almost to the Canadian
border, outmoded by I-35 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.003, Sept 9 at 2200, VOT is on today, VG with only
lite squeal, but I`m mainly listening to Spain. Missed topic of
`Feeling Supreme` but followed at 2242 by `Did You Know That`, about
``Turkish Delight`` which has been around for 1600, or was it 2600
years. ``Turkish delight or lokum is a family of confections based on
a gel of starch and sugar. Premium varieties consist largely of
chopped dates, pistachios, hazelnuts or walnuts bound by the gel;
traditional varieties are often flavored with rosewater, mastic gum,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2155 monitoring: confirmed Friday
September 9 at 1815.3 on IRRS SW, 7290 via BULGARIA, S9/+10 into
UTwente; and // AM Italia, Villa Estense, 1323 AND 918 kHz but not LW
207 kHz. Maybe IRRS noticed my observation that 918 gets less QRM than
1323, so brought it back; but you never know. 918 into nearby Noale
SDR at S9+22, while 1323 is generally below the CCI in German from
Romania, worse than usual. Again, I monitor the whole hour:

From 1755, 918 >> 1323, music of unknown origin. 1800 brief ``IRRS SW
signing on`` and `Feature Story News`. As always, 7290 JIP late a bit
before *1801. Guess what the only topic is, also for Spotlite segment
at 1803; 1805 IRRS ID by YL still asserting totally wrong frequency
7125 long gone, plus 918 and recently added 1323; `UN News in Brief`.
1808 raucous music fill of unknown origin; 1813 `UN News in Brief` --
again? Wasn`t paying attn at 1805 whether same topix now. 1815 chop
for a different IRRS plug/ID without frequencies, and WOR 2155
complete to 1844; at 1840 checked UTwente for 14580 = 2 x 7290 but not
audible this time.

1844 bit of music, OM ID with Milan address; 1845 blues? music; 1848
unID DJ introduces an Irish jig, `The Cat`s Miaou`, no program name
either. 7290 cuts off air already at 1855* instead of 1857. Back to
918, I find that still on but dead air, S9+22 of it. Shortly ID for AM
Italia on 207 & 918 & 1323 kHz (kee-lo-hertz) by synth? YL. Never
heard on 207 this hour nor for many weeks but does not mean it`s never
on, tho I don`t see it reported in European MWDX clubs. `She`
concludes with address info@amitalia.it, cute ESL ``Have a nice
listening``; then a timecheck in Italian uncopied, music.

Meanwhile on 1323 kHz the music has CCI and rumble; 1859 closing
German announcement from Romania, tone. 918 remains much better as at
1901 they both play the Verdi closing theme of IRRS; yet neither MW
frequency is going off the air now, and the SW is already long gone.

Also confirmed Friday September 9 at 2052 the 2030 on AM Italia 1323
at S9+15 and rough; and much better 918 at S9+22, not 207. 1323 also
has ACI from 1314 and less so from 1332. Both 918 & 1323 marred by
storm noise from lightning right over NE Italy & vicinity. 2059 WOR
finished, fragment of `Country Jamboree` opening, nexus.org ID,
`Feature Story News`; 2108 song.

Should anyone run across WOR on WRMI at a secret/unlisted time, such
as Friday evening, do let us know: this has happened in the past.

Also confirmed UT Saturday September 10 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela,
5130 minus 24/27 Hz, S6/S8 into Maryland remote. And:

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Sept 12 at 0000, WBCQ stream with `AAAWWW`
- a new one but an immediate turn-off as he starts by insulting us by
equivalenting Communists = Socialists = Democrats = Biden, not
necessarily in that order. Back toward the end of show he`s fishing
around for the new issue of Free Radio News -- he means Weekly, not
realizing that of the three rotating editors, only Harold gets it out
ASAP after the UT Sat 0000 deadline; Larry is next; but it`s the
following morning before Dave does it, including this week.

BTW, `The Score` this week about movies that bombed despite their
great music, includes variations on William Tell about :25 minutes

** U S A. 94.5, Sat Sept 10 at 1800 UT as I am driving around Enid and
bandscanning, ``K-state Wildcats`` in and out. There are two
possibilities: WIBW Topeka, but the one on that network is KSKL, per
i.e. `Mix 94`, 100 kW, 93 m, Scott City, 335 km = 208 miles. Just a GW

** CUBA. 11670, Sept 9 at 0637, RHC English, S9/+10, again wrong
frequency which should have closed in Spanish much earlier. 6165 is
also still on at S9+30; and this time 5040 is also in English instead
of usual Spanish, S9+20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 8 at 0650, JBA carrier but marred by unusual
music splash from 850 -- that is what led me to check 850, for KFUO or
WQRM at night. See also USA: 850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), UR1 via WRMI presumed still at 0500, for
`Ukraine: Security Issue` English war news summary, as monitored later
from archive:

For Sept 6, but no date or warday uttered by best-spoken YL,
including: U demands R open humanitarian corridor for civilian
evacuation around Zap. power plant. One of 6 reactors continues to
produce electricity for cooling needed. But disconnected from grid.
Was seized by R on 4 March. U fighters destroyed R chopper. Central
Kharkiv hit by missiles, rescue ops underway still. R employs UAVs to
drop explosives. Pres. Z conversed with SOTH Nancy Pelosi. Junior
Eurovision Song Contest competitors to be selected Sept. 18. JESC will
be Dec 11 in Yerevan, Armenia.

For Sept 7, Day 196, with the accented fast-talker guy slowed down,
including: 27 air strikes in one day by U against R. R continues
missiling civilian targets, villages. Should set up special tribunal
for R war criminals. Putin blames U for starting it. IAEA and Zap. NPP
news. Reuters pronounced Rooters. EU condemns R activities around
plant. Local residents trying to flee to Kyiv area. Baltic countries
agree not to allow Russian drivers in? Visa restrixions, except for
humanitarian reasons. R citizens will face delays, obstacles in
getting visas to Europe, not their fault but Putin`s (Glenn Hauser,

WOR 2155 confirmed first SWBCs, UT Friday September 9 at 0130 on
WRMIs: 7730, S9+5/15 into Maryland SDR; 5850 VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Friday September 9 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9+5/8 into
Maryland. Once again on this System/airing, the first 10
seconds or so are hit by a noise
burst which is obviously also coming out of the WRMI transmitter, the
immediately preceding canned ID in the clear.

Also confirmed Friday September 9 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S9/S7 into
Maryland SDR with some deep fading but no jamming audible.

I have asked Jeff if he could find any time, and frequency for WOR on
Friday evenings = early UT Saturdays, but none known, nor shown on a
just updated Sept 9, but still outdated skedgrid at:

** U S A [and non]. 850, Sept 9 at 0112 UT, as planned, I am checking
KFUO Clayton MO, the LCMS station, just before legal Denver sunset
sign-off: hymn, 0114 cut to canned sign-off, and itself chopped off
before finished at 0115* as transmitter turned off. Yet another
station lacking the finesse of human operation, for ignorant, clumsy
automation. Before off, compared with KOA on DX-398, from which not
much signal yet, but I am not hearing the 1+ Hz SAH I was getting in
the middle of last night with that Christian music unID. Anyhow KFUO
is definitely off tonight, nor am I hearing any trace of WQRM Duluth
which should have signed off earlier. The only SAH is a much faster
one with unknown else. Nor at 0615 am I hearing anything but talk from
KOA, altho poor, no musiQRM. And the KIRITIMATI carrier on 846, which
draws me to this bandpart in first place is again JBA.

As for the hymn heard last night, ``By his hand, he leadeth me``, I
enjoy trying to Latinize stuff, so run that thru Google translate,
resulting in: per manum suam adduxit me -- reverse: he led me by his

That seems a bit cumbersome so I enter what I think it should be in
Latin: manu suo me duxit is, for reverse translation, and get:
He led me with his hand

However, leadeth is present, not past tense, don`t you know?
So what about, ``by his hand he leads me``? That can be boiled down
to: me manu duxit

But present tense ``he leads me`` is just: ducit me. ducit is the
proper verb, indicative present tense, third person singular. Duxit is
the same but indicative perfect, i.e.. past tense.
BTW, if you leave out the pronoun, you can hardly Capitalise it,
deity-wise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932.05, Sept 9 at 0558 past 0600, R. Vanuatu still here
vs CODAR on 2 x 3966+; better at 0635, inaudible on 3966; trace JBA
carrier 11898+ vs huge Chinese on 11895. Cannot stay awake past 0700
QSY, but Gary Pence and Wolfgang Bueschel reconfirm 4310+, 8620+,
12930+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Thu Sept 8 at 9395 on WRMI 9395; anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Thursday September 8 at 0149 the 0130 on WRMI 5010,
S9/+15 but noisy into Bonaire SDR.

New WOR 2155 should be ready early UT Friday September 9 for download
and first SWBCs at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7730. Check:

** U S A. 9455, Sept 8 at 1453 VP signal from Brother HyStairical,
like booming 9980 WWCR, so WRMI must be reactivated (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 8 at 1454, WLCR/WBCQ absent again for at least
the third day when checked during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 850, Sept 8 at 0650 UT, hymns mostly instrumental dominating
on E/W longwire rather than KOA, but it`s soon audible underneath with
C2CAM // unimpeded 840 WHAS. Slow SAH between them on 850, of
68/minute = 1.13 Hz. Surely this be my long-ago local in Clayton MO,
KFUO, 5 kW daytimer but extended until Denver sunset, long passed now.
Maybe missed a ToH 0700 ID when I was chasing Vanuatu on SW, but at
0701 still hymns. An announcement at 0715 but fading and uncopied,
then choral hymn ``He Leadeth Me``.

Then I DF it on DX-398 and get NE/SW, mutually nullable with KOA NW,
close to right angle apart. Fits for KFUO, which does play a lot of
Christian music. Only other possible REL in NRC AM Log is WQRM, 50 kW
daytimer in Duluth MN, but apparently mostly talk.

MWOffset measurements from 2021, 2020, 2019 resp.: KOA on 849.9987,
KFUO on 850.0025, WQRM on 850.0001 --- that would make KOA and KFUO
.0038 kHz apart or 3.8 Hz. But WQRM/KOA only .0014 kHz apart, much
closer to my reading. Should be easy to compare when KFUO is legal,
before official FCC Denver sunset in Sept, 0115 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** VANUATU. 7932.055, Sept 8 at 0620, R. Vanuatu JBA direct vs CODAR;
JBA carrier on 11898+. Second and third harmonix of untried 3966+
ex-3945. At 0657, 7932 off already.

By 0702 Sept 8 after another frequency change, JBA talk and music on
8620.381 as discovered last night by Ron Howard, which is 2nd harmonic
of 4310.190, JBA carrier at 0707. Also on X3 = 12930.6 approx. at
0705, JBA carrier vs high noise level. Nothing on X4 = 17241- at

Contrary to wb`s assumption? Ron Howard hears from Bryan Clark that he
has been in contact with Adrian Sainsbury still at RNZI, about these
`rogue` frequencies from Vanuatu (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5900, Sept 8 at 0624 S9/+10 of Arabic?/ME music, 0630
announcement, chopped off at 0632*. Aoki has nothing but relays via
Bulgaria at other times; EiBi some more but nothing listed at this
hour. My guess: ALGERIA testing on yet another frequency (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
