** CANADA. 351-MCW kHz, Nov 8 at 0743 UT, dash and YKQ, 500-watt ND
beacon at Fort Rupert - Waskaganish, Québec, which is on an inlet at
the very southern end of James Bay, near the Ontario border. No
problem separating from 350 RG at WRWA OKC.

346-MCW kHz, Nov 8 at 0744 UT, dash and YXL, 500-watt NDB at Sioux
Lookout, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday November 8 at 0816, I am unfortunately not fully
asleep so check for weekly RHC Esperanto, confirmed in progress here
and nowhere else on 49m. Ex-0700 UT during DST. Next broadcast ex-1500
during DST is now from 1602 on 11760 and 15140, as 13700 has just
turned off. Opening gives schedule, on 6100 but missed copying the
alleged time; 1600 on 11760-only; 2230 on 15730 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sun Nov 8 at 1439, `En Contacto` has already started
on RHC: not a word from ailing Arnie to be heard, as Marta Ríos reads
his script about solar activity, including mailbag acknowledgements,
one from February 2020 --- so an old show? One other voice is the AER
guy with monthly DX report from Spain, which is about only 3 stations:
V of Mongolia, R Clube do Pará, and RAE on 5800, failing to mention
that`s a detested WRMI relay; and as always laboriously spelling out
p-mail contact addresses. // frequencies on now include 11760, 13740 &
13700 lacking spurs, 15230 suptorted. Something`s always wrong at
RHC.

For fun, I check the RHC website for B-20 frequency schedule:
http://www.radiohc.cu/de-interes/frecuencias
Would you believe this is still dated Abril 2016-Noviembre 2016?!?!
Something`s very wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: Also confirmed, UT Sunday
Nov 8 at 0433 about 10 minutes into, on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville

** U S A. 1150, Nov 8 at 0736 UT, besides KSAL Salina KS, I am hearing
Sousa march music, must be the scheduled DX test from KSEN Shelby,
Montana. Yes, 0737 very slow Morse Code MCW IDs: VVV DE KSEN, with
call repeated so many times I lose count. 0739 sweep tones; 0740 I
switch from the DX-398 with internal antenna only somewhat nulling
KSAL, to the R75 with E-W longwire where KSAL is more solid, but still
hearing underneath, KSEN now with continuous tone. 0742,
phone-off-the-hook pulse sounds. So that`s it. As I said, unheard 24
hours earlier, and it turns out that test was deficient at low power.
Tonight it`s widely heard from coast to coast at least. Shelby is near
Cut Bank, on I-15, only some 35 miles south of Alberta (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9669.850, Nov 7 at 1946, JBA music from Channel 292, needs
LSB tuning to avoid splash from much stronger 9675 music, Turkish from
Sa`udi Arabia. I`m checking it direct only to here. Has been testing
with new rotatable hi-gain antenna with 10 kW. Website has detailed
skedgrid for 9670 and other frequency programming, but nothing
specific here and now. It`s so small that it`s hard to make out the
programs, and low-res so zooming it up makes the blurs larger,
revealing that most of the 24/7 hours are not yet booked in English
and German. The azimuths to around here are 248-293-338, i.e. 45
degrees apart. Can there be any setting between, or only in these 8
steps? Rohrbach is in SE Germany west of Austria, and my NGS globe
shows the direxion to Enid is: 308 degrees so we are 15-30 degrees
split between. Others have reported same frequency offset within a
couple Hz. Seems a little weaker after 2000, maybe beam change.

Texas Radio Shortwave planned test to NAm via Channel 292 on 9670v,
UT Sun Nov 8 at 0300-0400. At 0253 I start listening via TWR Raleigh
NC SDR: some VP music averaging S3; at UTwente S6-S7 but not enough.
After 0300 I cannot recognize it as TRSW for sure; still same at
Raleigh and UTwente. Nothing here in OK, nor to noisy Maine SDR. Just
heard QSL announcement at 0315-0316. Brasil 9665- is much stronger
everywhere. Clearly WRMI is preferable for TRSW to here, as tried on
5800, 24 hours earlier, which I reported and QSLed (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [non]. 13590.059, Nov 7 at 1936, fair S7-S9 in Amerenglish,
off-frequency, VOA? Yes, scheduled this hour only via Pinheira, SÃO
TOMÉ, now well-known for its frequency-imprecision. Another VOA
service is on ``13590``, Ashna Radio at 13-14 via UAE site, likely
with a different offset. In between, others via Lampertheim, Kuwait
likely closer to 13590.00 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November
7 from 2033.7 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+10 steady local
quality signal into nearby Warrenton MO KiwiSDR. Back at 2026, Amateur
Radio Newsline was ending, then Vern spent a few minutes about
scheduling of St Louis-area repeater nets.

Also confirmed Sat Nov 7 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VP here but definitely.
This relatively new airing has disappeared from the WRMI skedgrid,
replaced by something else, so I removed it from my WORsked --- but
checking it anyway, there I am.

Also confirmed, UT Sunday Nov 8 at 0433 about 10 minutes into, so
started circa 0423, S9+20 direct. Next:
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE
0400vUT Monday WBCQ 6160v Area 61 to WSW
0430 UT Monday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [new? unconfirmed]

** U S A. 17775-, Nov 7 at 2013, KVOH is still on at S9+30 but dead
air; by 2020 modulation has resumed in talk. DST sked showed
Saturday-only English closing SW at 2000 UT, so I guess it`s now 2100*
altho final hour was supposed to be `Music in the Afternoon` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 15700, Nov 7 at 1502, CRI English via CUBA is S9/+10
but again, Just Barely Modulated. SAWA RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545, Sat Nov 7 at 1547-1558* presumed Tigrigna
talk and music until chopped off abruptly, checking out the
RMI-brokered clandestine via Issoudun, FRANCE, as monitored via
UTwente at S8-S9+10. Earlier I had posted on the WOR iog:

``Surprised to see at the end of WRMI schedules page a list of RMI
brokered relays including this Eritrean(?) clandestine on Saturdays;
anyone know what that name mean? Glenn

http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
Bayto Yiakl USA 1530-1600 EAf Z48 Mul lang ISS 17545 150 kW 4/6/8 ant
120 deg Sat ME``

As I am listening to it, I search out the name, finding:

Audio-videos, but from August only
https://baytoyiakl.org/user-videos/
https://www.facebook.com/baytoyiakl.usa

``Bayto Yiakl USA – The Only Way Forward --- About Us
https://baytoyiakl.org/about-us/

Bayto Yiakl USA is non-profit organization created by Eritreans
residing in cities of the United States of America to coordinate the
Yiakl popular movement in the United States of America with the vision
to build a peaceful, prosperous country, where rule of law, human
rights, social justice, values and cultures of all citizens are
ensured under the guidance of constitutional democratic principles.``

Then I retrieve discussion about same on the WOR iog::

Ivo Ivanov:
``Radio Voice of Steadfastness / Sawt Al-Somood
1500-1530 on 17545 ISS 150 kW / 120 deg to EaAf Arabic Sat is deleted
1530-1600 on 17545 ISS 150 kW / 120 deg to EaAf Tigrinya Sat``

Kai Ludwig:
``First appeared in December 2018, then no further reports appeared
for more than a year. On 1 August I found it by chance again on air.
https://baytoyiakl.org/
So now we finally know who produces these broadcasts... Kai``

Dave Kenny:
``This is Bayto Yiakl as per the WRMI schedule. I checked last week
and confirmed this ID, (it did not identify as Sawt al Samood last
week and appears to be a different station.) 73s Dave``

Alan Pennington:
``There are Eritrean "Bayto Yiakl" organisations in the USA and UK,
with websites, Facebook pages e.g. https://baytoyiakl.org/ The "Voice
of Bayto Yiakl" programme links from August on this US website show
17545 (kHz?). Translating from Tigrinya, "Bayto" seems to mean
"assembly" and "Yiakl" seems to mean "Enough is enough". 73, Alan``

Zacharias Liangas:
``from this page:
https://baytoyiakl.org/ti/home-page-%e1%89%b5%e1%8c%8d%e1%88%ad%e1%8a%9b/
as Tigre is not available and using Amharic to Goo translate
yields:

Bayto Yiakl or ባይቶ ይኣክል yields as "Add a look'

ሕቡራት መንግስታት ኣመሪካ (ḥiburati menigisitati amerīka) translates into
United States of America - Just for info!

Just a report: 17545.04 with open carrier 75/140 dB before 1530 then
IDing as “densi atl“ mentioning many times America and Mathias and
their tel number, only once I heard Bayto Yaki [sic]

Its carrier is wandering in between 100 Hz. Video:
https://youtu.be/oQ_ZfnXZ3-Y
Included here a photo on how the carrier wanders`` --- Zach

More from Kai Ludwig:
``I think Sawt al Samood is Arabic, so would no longer be heard
anyway, with all programming being in Tigrinya now? On the other hand
transferring a weekly transmission slot from one organization to
another already happened with the Rwanda broadcasts from Talata
Volonondry.

See the text at the start page https://baytoyiakl.org for its
references to Ethiopia. This aspect could soon become very topical,
there are fears that Eritrea could engage in what happens since three
days in Tigray, explicitly called a war by the head of DW Amharic who
adds that "one can only hope that Paris, Berlin and London will take
notice of it also in the coronavirus winter".
https://p.dw.com/p/3kxcC

It could be worth to check out the Mekele broadcasting station and its
transmission on 5950 kHz via the Addis Abeba (Geja Dera) shortwave
plant. This relay seems to be the only possibility to monitor it,
unless the footprint of
https://de.kingofsat.net/tp.php?tp=12166
(3.720 GHz) does not cut off over southern Europe as the official
specification shows. A poor SD relay of the TV programming appears to
be relayed on
https://de.kingofsat.net/tp.php?tp=408
too, unless this (and of course the original Belintersat feed) are not
something completely different. Nothing online anymore, at least not
at the dimtsiwoyane.com URL which they let expire. Kai``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 15350, Nov 7 at 1503, S9 of Turkish music but
considerable SAH from something else. Aoki/NDXC and HFCC reveal:

** U S A. 17775-, Sat Nov 7 at 1611, KVOH confirmed with `AWR
Wavescan` at new time of 1600 ex-1500, fair S5-S7 into TWR Key West
SDR. I listen to the rest of it: amid Voice of Vietnam anniversary
program about Cuban relays during the War, something I have heard
before elsewhere. 1619 Jeff resumes, that Walt Salmaniw from Masset BC
pulled in the AWR Sri Lanka relay, 400 kW on 1548 kHz, at 1500 UT.
Philippine MW station reactivated, typhoon news, and Phil. DX report
which I always have a very hard time following due to the rapid accent
and content consisting of regular logs with signal readings (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1150, Nov 7 at 0702-0735 UT, no sign of KSEN Shelby, Montana
DX test. Was not expecting much, as 1150 is dominated here by KSAL
Salina KS on nighttime tight N/S pattern, but even with it nulled as
much as possible, still no DX sounds or other station readable, just
C2CAM from KSAL as I am dozing out and in. KSEN supposed to try DX
test again UT Sunday Nov 8 at 07-08 with 10 kW, unclear direxionality

** U S A. 5800, Nov 7 at 0300, WRMI with special experimental
broadcast of Texas Radio Shortwave, VG S9+5/15 into Bonaire SDR. Opens
with ``Yellow Rose of Texas`` alla marcia. O, I`ve heard this hour
before somewhere else but enjoy it again with best reception ever. I`m
sure it would also be good if heard direct here but I`m at the
computer. 0303 Third Mate YL robovoice signs on introducing Robert
Kipp from Germany who made the playlist of big guns in country music;
he lists the names, and ``drei und siebzig``. I note many but not all
of the songs by title or lyrix.

0307 YL ID, address, eQSL offer. 0309 ``All My Exes Live in Texes``.
0313 ``San Antonio Rose`` [BTW, I lived for several years in Von
Ormy/San Antonio, later Austin]. 0315 ``Back in the Saddle Again``.
0322 ``Sweet Lips``. 0330 OM eQSL offer, intro Buddy Holly, ``That`ll
Be the Day``. 0336 ``Know When to Fold `Em``. 0340 ``Freedom Is Just
Another Name for Nothing Left to Lose``. 0344 Cap`n Ric himself about
this being on 5800, ID, eQSL, Hiwaymen. 0352 ``Pretty Woman``. 0354
`Y.R.O.T` not alla marcia. 0356 YL sign-off, tnx Kipp, eQSL, motto
``Land was created as a place for pirates to visit`` -- got it right
this time? Closing theme again ``Y.R.O.T.`` alla marcia. Carrier stays
on a bit past 0400*

Another TRSW test will be 24 hours later, UT Sun Nov 8 at 0300-0400 on
9670v from Channel 292, Germany with its new direxional hi-gain
antenna aimed toward North America; same program? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat Nov 7 from new time of 0100, WBCQ webcast of
`AAAWWW`. First topix Free Speech, KDKA anniversary. AHW is avoiding
politix this week in the limbo postlude, surprisingly mostly
successfully. 0112 call interrupts from Annoying Freddie. 0123 reads
FCC chairman Ajit Pai`s salute to KDKA. COVID-19 progress (?). 0139
reading a Radio World article about Edwin Armstrong & Lear but feed
from crowded Studio 9 in Deland of Fla, is interrupted as webcast
keeps running silently; 0140 fill music inserted by Monticello; but
resumed shortly; 0142 lost again, 0143 back again in time to
datestamp as ``6th of November, YOOL 2020``. 0145 caller asks for his
opinion about the elexion so he explains the subject is being avoided
for now. 0151 reads some pirate logs from Free Radio Weekly, mentions
thanx to Glenn. 0154 e-mail, someone wonders whatever happened to
screaming preacher Terry Blalock? He ran out of funding. AHW assures
us ``he`s a sweetheart``, paid bills on time. Starts to scream in
tribute but stops before damaging lungs. Ramsey says he picked up KDKA
anniversary on antique radios. 0157 benedixion (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, Nov 6 at 1500, KVOH sign-on in English only for
``people-loving people``, already S9+30, HF sporadic-E assist? 1501
nortena music no doubt gospelic, instead of DX program `Frecuencia al
Dia` scheduled Monday & Friday --- but websked is still dated 8 March
2020 for DST season, while all programming has surely shifted one UT
hour later as if that mattered in most of Latin America. So FAD should
be at 1600 now, as well as in English `Wavescan` on Saturdays (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Nov 6 at 0702-0707
UT: 558, 621, 639(2), 693, 729, 747(2), 774(2), 837, 846(TP), 855,
909*, 936, 1044, 1053, 1089, 1107, 1179, 1215*, 1449, 1710(domestic).
*strongest, surely UK. (2)= at least two carriers beating.

No DFing on the longwire. This season around this hour, 774 might bear
not only RNE Valencia, Spain, today`s LSR 0637; but also NHK Akita,
Japan, LSS 0731. What about ABC Melbourne? LSS today not until 0901
UT; latest, two months from now, will be 0946, while Valencia`s latest
SR in two months will be 0722, all per gaisma.com. RNE has several
synchros on 774, and I usually hear a beat, but 100 kW from Valencia
is the mayor (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
Note: about a dekaday after the icestorm, my main antenna to the R75,
~100 foot E-W-ish longwire, has been restored circa 1930 UT Nov 4. But
line noise level is too high around here.

** CANADA. 248-MCW kHz, Nov 5 at 0704 UT, dash and WG, the NDB from
Winnipeg with quite a strong 1 kW signal like PR on 391; but no
rarities from elsewhere in Canada; weak 250-watt, 413-MCW, YHD from
Dryden, Ont (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Nov 5 at 1441, none in the WOOB 13s, 12s
or 10s, but weak Chinese on 11120, JBA carriers on 11440, 11460 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 4 at 2019, RHC first English of the day confirmed
usual non-DST shift to one UT hour later from 2000, VG S9+20 with OK
modulation altho often not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2059)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 5 at 0644, RHC English again on this frequency
instead of erroneous 5910 23 hours ago, // 6145 and 5040 also on an
hour later than in summer, all with OK modulation but 6000 is
suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2059)

** CUBA. 13638 & 13763 approx., Nov 5 at 1433, RHC Spanish extremely
distorted FMish spurblobs with F# tones are back! after quite a spell
missing, about S9 out of even stronger fundamental 13700. But only
trace of further multiples circa 13566, 13826, 13886.

Nov 5 at 1520 I blobcheck again: approx. 13763 but much weaker on
13638, while 13700 is S9+10/20 with good modulation. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2059)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 5 at 1518, RHC `Sonido Cubano` music is ruined by
suptorted modulation out of this S9+20; // 15230 is relatively OK,
just undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391-MCW kHz, Nov 5 at 0703 UT, NDBeacon DDP with
strong 1-kW signal all the way from Dorado, like that from 248 WG
Winnipeg. I was tuned to 389 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Wednesday November 4 at 2200.4 on WBCQ 7490.1v, S9/+10 direct now one
UT hour later improved with less light path
