Thursday, January 12 2023

Hauser
** CANADA. 2598 USB, Jan 11 at 0740 UT, roboYL voice in English with
marine weather for south coast, east coast of somewhere, presumably
Newfoundland. Good S9 signal; slightly weaker S8 on 2749 USB at 0742
Jan 11 same voice but presumably different forecasts for Nova Scotia
area. Once again these are first scheduled broadcasts of a new day for
early-rising mariners: 2598 from 0737 is VCP-4 Placentia with 3000
watts; 2749 from 0740 is VCO Sydney with 550 watts. Each shares time
with several other stations, per Metarea IV in
https://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Jan 11 at 0727, S9 of dead air, in English or Spanish?
only RHC still on, where something`s always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Jan 11 at 0726, V. of Nothing, no signal from Abuja
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORFOLK ISLAND. 5045, Radio DX: unfortunately not a log by me, as
it was on short notice while I slept on, but Nick Hacko reactivated
this SWBC radio country January 11 to make some tests, again like last
April employing the ID I recorded for him as well as some World of
Radio excerpts. Thanks to his notifying the WOR iog about this, there
was a flurry of reports by those awake from 0741 past 1045, hearing it
direct or via remotes. Perhaps he will be doing this again in the near
future. Not 5055 as some had expected; and be careful as there may be
a Queensland station also on 5045 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4810, Jan 11 at 0729, JBA carrier vs heavy STANAG noise on
4810+. I`m always alert for anything here in my bandscans, since so
few broadcasters are left on 60m, nothing detected for months at
least in the nightmiddle. Suspected R. Logos, Chazuta, 1 kW, which as
of WRTH 2022 deadline was double-daggered as inactive. TBM shows not
reported since Sept 2022. No other BC stations now known anywhere,
anywhen on 4810 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 11 at 2305, token English from REE. Main feature
by Hélena Rigobert is about a new modernized produxion of Purcell`s
opera Dido & Aeneas opening Jan 17 in Madrid. Great music
interspersed; 2318-2321 break for report from Lebanon correspondent
about a church being completely vandalized by some Syrian. 2321-2330
fills with Act I of D&A, or part of it. VG S9+20/30 into Maryland SDR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 11 at 2300, VOT English, timesignal and news,
S9+25/35 into UTwente but I`m mainly listening to simulSpain, q.v.
2330-2338 repeating `Weekly Commentary` about the CFA Franc; yesterday
was placed much earlier in the hour. 2343-2349 another repeat, about
the great kiwi fruit. See #4 below about title of this segment. This
time I`m listening closely: could be ``Healing Supreme`?? Definitely a
U between the S and P. 2352 s/off with sked, IS once to 2353*
uncovering the CCCCCCI which had been underneathing all along.

Alan Holder had replied to my logs: ``Hi Glenn, I hope you are in good
health. I'm fine here at the moment. I always read your daily logs
posted on the WOR io group site with much interest.

I note that you are having difficulty in understanding some of the
program names on VOT. Well, you are not alone, as I also have this
problem (as I'm sure many others do). Some of the announcers have such
thick accents, and this, coupled with signal fading, does not make for
easy comprehension.

Besides short wave, I have also listened carefully online and as far
as I can make them out, here are some of the English program names:

1. Gripping Files
2. Turkey's Geo-marketed products
3. The 'Firsts' of Anatolia
4. Healing Spring {which I had concluded was `Feeling Supreme` -gh}

The first title is a bit odd - probably translated from the Turkish
word

sürükleyici

Either of the synonyms: intriguing, or fascinating might be more
appropriate than gripping. Unfortunately they do not seem to have a
native English speaker on staff.

#4 Although nothing to do with the benefits of spring water, the
program features the 'magical' healing properties of certain foods and
other natural products. But I still think they could find a better
title.

You are right about the heavy accent of one of the lady announcers.
And coupled with the constant fall and rise in intonation, I find
listening to her delivery really annoying. Not wishing to be unkind, I
really wonder why she was hired in the first place.

Still no sign of the "Letterbox" program. The last edition was in
August 2020 if I remember rightly. I think some of the announcers are
working from home, as I can detect a "roomy echo" sometimes, instead
of studio quality sound.

All the best to you. Alan Holder, Isle of Wight`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2172 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening
Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, antenna: random long wires in the trees.
Dear Glenn: Confirming World of Radio #2172, Happy New Year 2023; WRMI
Facebook page is not being kept updated and current, check in this.
WRMI:
5850, slight QRN, 0133, 0145 (55433), 0159, January 7 UTC, 2023 [Sat]
9395, 0130, 0156 (45343), 0158, January 10 UTC 2023 [Tue]
9395, 0030, 0049, 0058 (55433-4), 0058, January 11 UTC 2023 [Wed]
5850, 1028, 1030 (55433), 1029, January 11 UTC 2023 [Wed]
(Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Confirmed UT Wednesday January 11 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+20/30 into
Missouri SDR, better than S9/+10 vs HNL into Lincoln NE. As always,
preceding program `Midnight Cry` chopped off at 0029 before could
finish uttering their URL. And my very last word, ``disclaimer`` at
0059 stepped upon by music fill: ain`t inhuman automation wonderful?

Also confirmed Wednesday January 11 at 1041 the 1030 on WRMI 5850, VG
direct when I happen to awaken briefly.

Also confirmed Wednesday January 11 at 2202 tune-in the 2200 on WBCQ
7490 minus 64 Hz = 7489.936, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR. Later found
this from WBCQ sent at 2044:

``Hi Glenn, After 24 years on 7490, Financial Survival has left the
WBCQ airways. It was a great run with Melody and Jim Cedarstrom.
Melody is moving on with other ventures. We thank them for their loyal
patronage all these years. Replacing their time slot [Wed 2100-2200]
is American Classics with Pirate Joe. Fantastic, great old music, much
plated on original 78 rpm records. Together with Radio Angela
programming, WBCQ strives to bring the best variety of programming to
the shortwave radio world. Thanks, Allan & Angela Weiner, WBCQ Radio``
--- Shux, I missed hearing their neat closing theme tune for the last
time just before WOR, nothing else. F.S. had also been simulcast on
WWCR, gone there too?

Next and last WOR 2172 repeats:
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 9330v, Jan 11 at 0718 & 1613, WLCR/WBCQ is again/still OFF
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 11 at 0722, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu but not
on 11835, no doubt depending on night-path MUFs (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051.0, Jan 11 at 0736, mystery open carrier, S7/S9 is
back after missing a night or two. Meanwhile someone noted some others
like it ending in 51 elsewhere on SW, possibly related (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7390.057, Jan 11 at 0724, JBA off-frequency carrier.
Aoki & EiBi have nothing scheduled now, but RFI until 0700, CRI from
1000. An RNZ frequency of course, but not until 1300. HFCC also shows
a wooden alternate? registration for WWCR on 85 degree antenna at
1400-2000, never activated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CHINA [non]. 5910, Jan 10 at 0342, S9+20/30 of dead air except for
some hum, instead of CRI/CGTN in English, scheduled via CUBA at 03-05
in English, Cantonese. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 10 at 0337, no signal from R. Progreso. Have not
been checking for it much during short nominal sked, 0130-0500; has
anyone heard it lately? Only other 60mb Cubans, 5040 RHC and 5025
Rebelde are also off, tho 5025 is sometimes on. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Jan 10 at 0722, no signal detectable from R.
Kiribati, nor any other 9/kHz JBA split carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.018, Jan 10 at 2304, VOT English is on today
but with hum and way undermodulated, S9+30 into UTwente. By 2312 the
CCCCCCI from EAST TURKISTAN is on adding to the QRM and making a
rippling SAH since VOT is so far off-frequency. 2312-2328 `Weekly
Commentary` about the CFA Franc and Africa solving its own problems;
2332 next feature whose title I can never understand, something about
Tuerkiye`s Geo-something. Sign off and cut carrier at 2353* after only
a few notes of IS, no finesse --- either that or an extra hour in
German. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 344 MCW kHz, Jan 10 at 0727 UT, JA, 400-watt ND beacon at
JAxonvil FL, first heard tuned to 341 USB, along with EI EnId and OIN
OberlIN KS; also audible on 342 but did not realize it`s really on 344
until uplooked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Jan 10 at 2102, dash and PCO, HIFER beacon at
Pine, ColoradO. Seems several repetitions between dashes but
uncounted, JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2172 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday January 10 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+20 direct; 0152 recheck
faded way down to S9/S5 with propagation disturbance, but back up
after 0200. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035 USB [low power]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v OR 5130v to WSW

** U S A. 9330v, Jan 10 at 0735, 1544, 2105 random chex, no signal
from WLCR/WBCQ-6, so never on today? Wonder what`s the problem now.
Still no sign of frequency-agile capability (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 10 at 0010 notes from a phone call by George
McClintock of the real WTWW: 5085 #2 transmitter is now running 75 kW
to conserve electricity altho capable of 105. Ted ``destroyed
commercial broadcasting`` on the non-SFA transmitter as it has been
difficult to regain clients, who concluded SW is no good. Anyhow, #1
transmitter is disabled, lacking 8 cards to make it run at no more
than 75-80 kW. Has not had a chance to get #2`s 9 MHz daytime
frequency operational. Has photographic evidence of the messes Ted
left, even worse than the ones already sent me.

5085, Jan 10 at 0338, SFA talking about something happening in March
2022, so it`s not limited to hoary decade-old recordings of PPPP.
At least did not seem like a prophecy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 10 at 0747, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu X2, but
nothing audible on X3, 11835 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, re my not hearing LRA36 in ``Log
report Jan 7th 2023 --- When I‘ve tried to find out if RNA was on or
not, i.e. already around 1440 UT, nothing of a signal came in via any
of the relevant SDR spots like Uruguay or even Brazil (Pardinho) or
those you‘ve already mentioned. 73 Joachim Kornek, Dortmund,
Germany`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7665, Jan 9 at 1625 music and 1626 Chinese, S6/S9 with
flutter, not expecting to hear anything so late on this band; NZ 7390
JBA carrier leaving this the SSOB. Must be CNR1 jammer from eastern
China rather than target RFA Mandarin via Tajikistan at 15-17 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 9765, Jan 9 at 2240-2255, found some music here to
accompany a seminap: barbershop quartet? with gospel harmonies in
English, with occasional interruptions by hyper announcer of `Palavra
Alegre` in Brazuguese from MWV. S9/+10 but with very heavy flutter
adding to the effect, despite trans-equatorial path to here rather
than to target Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Jan 9 at 0741, VON on at S9/+10 but JBM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Jan 9 at 2300, token English from REE to North
America, VG into Maryland SDR and don`t explore the others. Switching
back and forth with simulTurkey, q.v. 2308 sports news about golf
refers to something called a ``boogie``, 2309 things being calmer in
Spain than Brasil; 2314 asking for email or whatsapp contacts. 2315
about a Picasso/Chanel exhibition (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Jan 9 at 2300, VOT English VG S9+40 into
UTwente and good modulation level except for light squeal. I`m
switching back and forth with SimulSpain, q.v. After news, 2309
`Review of the Turkish Press`; By 2315 the CCCCCCI carrier from XJPBS,
East Turkistan, std denunciation seems to be depressing the sound
heard from Turkey with its undercurrent. 2318, `Feeling Supreme` about
the great health benefits of kiwi fruit, antioxidant, etc. 2324 music
break; 2330 something about preserving Turkish culture (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2172 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday January 8 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only,
S9+10/18 with little QRM.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 9 from 0402 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160

** U S A. 9330v, Jan 9 at 1621, WLCR/WBCQ-6 is off again. What`s
wrong, more weekday work? Has been mostly on when checked elsewhen
such as after 0700 today and circa 2235 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 9 at 0735, R. Vanuatu a JBA carrier, but better
than the JJBBA carrier on 11835; harmonix of 3945. Other Jan 9
reports:

Gary Pence, KM5X: ``Vanuatu is S8 to S9+10db into AI6VN/HH6 rSDR in
Maui on 7890 and little stronger on 11835 from 0701z To 0712z. News
broadcast in Bislama, English reporting on earthquake damage and
flooding including all local news. I don't think it was major damage
but report I heard at ToH was from a news correspondent in
Bougainville, then the rest of the news followed. gp``

Ron Howard: ``Jan 9 - Radio Vanuatu not affected by quake. 7260 at
0605+ UT, with end of the news/sports and start of RV promo; lots of
island music; 0657, start of commercial announcements ("Media
enterprises," etc.); cut off just at 0659*; no QRM (no Mongolia);
*0659, heard on harmonic 7890, while 3945 and 11835H were not heard.
Ron, California`` Heavy flooding and landslides reported along
California coast such as Santa Cruz; hope not so bad circa Monterey

** CHINA [and non]. 11590, Jan 8 at 1607, S9/+10 Firedragon jamming,
probably our best chance to hear it, but mixed with Chinese, either
target RFA TINIAN or more likely another jammer with CNR1 programming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 10080, Jan 8 at 0215, RHC Spanish S5/S7 direct but JBM, //
much louder 9650. Transmitter once again mistuned to second harmonic
of proper 5040 where nothing but a JBA carrier. At 0745, 10080 still
on with Spanish newscast, no 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
EiBi now shows 10080 at 2200-0800; and as I outpointed when this
initiated, victims are 10081 aero HF data linx of Shannon and San
Francisco. See my Nov 21 report for more about HFDLs (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 8 at 0217, R. Rebelde here and no 10050, S9+30/40
but overmodistorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser,OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Jan 8 at 0743, only RHC English still on altho with S9
Spanish music at the moment but not // 10080 real Spanish service,
q.v. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Jan 8 at 1606, RHC is OFF, leaving only weak 15140 for
Sunday Esperanto. Check various frequencies for it at 2130? 2230?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Horacio Nigro has just reported that Arnie Coro died this
morninng Jan 8 at age of 80. QEPD/RIP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Jan 8 at 0753, no signal from R. Kiribati,
presumably another Sunday silence; nor any other 9/kHz splits (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Jan 8 at 0749, no signal from VON. You never know
whether it might have come and gone irregularly earlier (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, Jan 8 at 0225, rock music at S6/S7, the
OPOB = only pirate on band, that is audible. These say it`s Two Dog
Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,107892.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sunday January 8 at 0100-0200, `Encore`
classical music via WRMI, heard sufficiently well via Lincoln,
Nebraska SDR. I heard only part of it on first airing UT Friday 0200
on 5850, inconvenient time. Another opportunity UT Monday 0300 on 5950
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002+, Sat Jan 7 at 2307, VOT English is on,
S9+20/30 into UTwente but somewhat undermodulated vs the CCCCCCI
making them an almost equal intolerable mix, so I don`t try to listen
for content. 2348 already playing IS, sign-off earlier than usual:
except it`s still on, 2357 switching to German IDs interspersed. And
stays on well past 0000 Jan 8 with yet another extraneous broadcast.
No more clashing with The Mighty KBC which has left Nauen 5960 for
WRMI 5950 22 hours later. For other reasons: KBC never showed any
concern for the unpredictable collision with Turkey, sticking to 5960
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOWR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2172 monitoring: Bill Tilford says
the WBCQ R. Angela airing succeeded this week, UT Sat Jan 7 at 0500 on
5130v.

New time on WRMI sked, Sat 2230 on 5850, 7730, 15770, so I`m all set
Jan 7 to check these out, via remotes and direct, resulting in quite a
confusing situation. To Missouri SDR, 5850 is S9/+20 but still music
at 2230, WOR seems to start late at 2231. But this SDR keeps dropping
out every few seconds, like buffering? Then I switch it to 15770 while
Maryland and UTwente are getting no signal there altho aimed toward
them. These interruptions add up, so Missouri is still playing WOR on
15770 until 2305.7! 7730 has been completely gone tho on the schedule:
briefly I think I`m hearing WOR there, but it must have been a delay
in remote activating frequency tuning change. Back to earlier in the
semihour: on 5850, WOR interrupted by music, `Those Were the Days`,
and at 2240, `Both Sides Now` heard direct on 5850.

Confirmed UT Sunday January 8 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/S5 into
Maurice, Louisiana SDR which gets 7780 aimed SW from FL better than
the others. Playout still starts with 10+ seconds of noise out of WRMI
itself overriding my first words!

Confirmed UT Sunday January 8 starting at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
S9+15/20 into neighborly SDR, but still with lots of storm noise no
closer than the lightning line from SE TX across N LA and C/N MS.

** U S A. 5085, Jan 8 at 0219, WTWW with PPPP, very strong, still
flanked by JBA spurs plus/minus 12.9 kHz. Still no sign of
reactivating day frequency 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1580, Jan 8 at 0250 UT, Spanish music somewhat romantic
dominating on E/W longwire, bringing visions of XEDM Hermosillo, 50 kW
clearish channel but that`s been kaput for years. What a waste. In
fact now not a single XE is listed on 1580. 0250 quick partial ID
caught between songs, ``FM``. Then the DX-398 DFs this to NW/SE, so no
doubt KFCS Colorado Springs CO, the closest and most obvious of the
six USSS in NRC AM Log, but hard to believe it`s on night power of 140
watts rather than 10 kW ND day. Log says it`s in the Grp= Tigre 94.7
headed by KRYE 94.7. I remember when the 1580 CS/CO was something in
English. BTW, there is also ``The Tiger`` on 1580, KTGR, but it`s
sportstalk in English, Columbia MO, 8 watts at night (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Jan 8 at 0746, S5/S9 music and talk, poor but not
bad for third harmonic of a 2.5 kW transmitter of R. Vanuatu; 7890
however, the second is a JBA carrier in HNL. Nothing of course now on
7260 which Adrian Sainsbury says runs until 0659 QSY to 3945++, but I
am seldom at the dials before 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1000 kHz, Jan 8 at 0240 UT, music in Spanish, brief
announcement as ``todos éxitos``, about equal level to KTOK OKC which
is SSE, on my E/W longwire, and best audible with KTOK nulled on the
DX-398, but can`t get a DF on it separately. Searching on slogan or
catchphrase unproductive. No USSS stations fit - NRC AM Log shown only
two religious daytimers in MA, NC. Mexico? Only three still exist, per
IRCA Mexican Log 2022/2023, notably XEOY Radio Mil in CDMX, but //
6010 has been gone for many years. The others: XEFV in Juárez, XETAC
in CHiapas. CUBA? Sounded too ``commercial`` but two in WRTH 2022: R.
Artemisa, R. Granma. The latter named for Castro`s revolutionary boat:
do Cubans even realize derivation of the name? Grandmother, originally
named by a Yanqui (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1180.03, Jan 8 at 0247 UT, MW bandscan at 10-kHz steps
finds a het from a JBA carrier about here. Nothing in mwoffsets. Most
likely one of countless Cuban jammers off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1240.20, Jan 8 at 0248 UT, MW bandscan at 10-kHz steps
finds a het from a JBA carrier about here. Nothing in mwoffsets. Most
likely one of countless US graveyarders off-frequency. Seems I once
IDed somesuch many years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051.0, Jan 8 at 0751, open carrier still here but JBA.
I have not kept relogging it, never any modulation reported. But some
interesting observations in the ODXA iog:

``Over the last several nights I've noticed an unmodulated carrier on
5051 kHz. At first I thought it might be some station that hadn't
signed on yet but after several hours nothing more was heard other
than the carrier. I then checked and verified that it wasn't a
receiver birdie. I decided to check a few of the online receivers
around my area to rule out a local source. This carrier showed up on
all of the receivers I checked. The other night I did a large sweep of
many receivers around the world, and as long as they were in darkness
this signal was there at various levels of strength. For receivers
that were in daylight this signal would show up after their local
sunset. This carrier is heard all over North and South America,
Europe, and the far East. It seems to be stronger as you go further
north. It is strongest in Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Scotland, etc. It
is weakest in the southern hemisphere although I could still hear it
in Argentina and Chile and it came in fairly well in Australia and New
Zealand. It was barely audible on one of the South African receivers.
After many hours of checking I've never heard any type of modulation,
and it does seem to follow the day/night propagation changes for a
signal on this frequency. Anyone out there have any idea what this
might be or where it might come from? Cheers, John VE3CXB`` Hudak

To which Richard Lacroix replied:

``03:00 UTC 08 JAN 2023 - I can also confirm reception in N.E. Canada
with a nice quiet S8 signal on both my T2FD and Wellbrook loop
antennae. The signal is also present on the University of Twente
Wide-band WebSDR with an S9 signal.

I have run several TDoA passes on the signal and they have all been
fairly consistent placing the signal near Island [ICELAND] or the
Western part of Europe. I think it is safe to assume that this
originating from somewhere in Europe but as always, I do not place any
great deal of confidence from the results obtained from the KiwiSDR
TDoA service.

I observed an S+10 signal from the Llerana de Saro, Cantabria KiwiSDR:

Hauser

** CHINA [and non]. 11590, Jan 8 at 1607, S9/+10 Firedragon jamming,
probably our best chance to hear it, but mixed with Chinese, either
target RFA TINIAN or more likely another jammer with CNR1 programming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 10080, Jan 8 at 0215, RHC Spanish S5/S7 direct but JBM, //
much louder 9650. Transmitter once again mistuned to second harmonic
of proper 5040 where nothing but a JBA carrier. At 0745, 10080 still
on with Spanish newscast, no 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
EiBi now shows 10080 at 2200-0800; and as I outpointed when this
initiated, victims are 10081 aero HF data linx of Shannon and San
Francisco. See my Nov 21 report for more about HFDLs (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 8 at 0217, R. Rebelde here and no 10050, S9+30/40
but overmodistorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser,OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Jan 8 at 0743, only RHC English still on altho with S9
Spanish music at the moment but not // 10080 real Spanish service,
q.v. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Jan 8 at 1606, RHC is OFF, leaving only weak 15140 for
Sunday Esperanto. Check various frequencies for it at 2130? 2230?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Horacio Nigro has just reported that Arnie Coro died this
morninng Jan 8 at age of 80. QEPD/RIP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Jan 8 at 0753, no signal from R. Kiribati,
presumably another Sunday silence; nor any other 9/kHz splits (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Jan 8 at 0749, no signal from VON. You never know
whether it might have come and gone irregularly earlier (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, Jan 8 at 0225, rock music at S6/S7, the
OPOB = only pirate on band, that is audible. These say it`s Two Dog
Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,107892.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sunday January 8 at 0100-0200, `Encore`
classical music via WRMI, heard sufficiently well via Lincoln,
Nebraska SDR. I heard only part of it on first airing UT Friday 0200
on 5850, inconvenient time. Another opportunity UT Monday 0300 on 5950
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002+, Sat Jan 7 at 2307, VOT English is on,
S9+20/30 into UTwente but somewhat undermodulated vs the CCCCCCI
making them an almost equal intolerable mix, so I don`t try to listen
for content. 2348 already playing IS, sign-off earlier than usual:
except it`s still on, 2357 switching to German IDs interspersed. And
stays on well past 0000 Jan 8 with yet another extraneous broadcast.
No more clashing with The Mighty KBC which has left Nauen 5960 for
WRMI 5950 22 hours later. For other reasons: KBC never showed any
concern for the unpredictable collision with Turkey, sticking to 5960
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOWR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2172 monitoring: Bill Tilford says
the WBCQ R. Angela airing succeeded this week, UT Sat Jan 7 at 0500 on
5130v.

New time on WRMI sked, Sat 2230 on 5850, 7730, 15770, so I`m all set
Jan 7 to check these out, via remotes and direct, resulting in quite a
confusing situation. To Missouri SDR, 5850 is S9/+20 but still music
at 2230, WOR seems to start late at 2231. But this SDR keeps dropping
out every few seconds, like buffering? Then I switch it to 15770 while
Maryland and UTwente are getting no signal there altho aimed toward
them. These interruptions add up, so Missouri is still playing WOR on
15770 until 2305.7! 7730 has been completely gone tho on the schedule:
briefly I think I`m hearing WOR there, but it must have been a delay
in remote activating frequency tuning change. Back to earlier in the
semihour: on 5850, WOR interrupted by music, `Those Were the Days`,
and at 2240, `Both Sides Now` heard direct on 5850.

Confirmed UT Sunday January 8 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/S5 into
Maurice, Louisiana SDR which gets 7780 aimed SW from FL better than
the others. Playout still starts with 10+ seconds of noise out of WRMI
itself overriding my first words!

Confirmed UT Sunday January 8 starting at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
S9+15/20 into neighborly SDR, but still with lots of storm noise no
closer than the lightning line from SE TX across N LA and C/N MS.
Next:

0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ Area 51 6160v to WSW [last week at 0431]
