Hauser
** CUBA. 13740, June 6 at 0358, RHC in Spanish S9+10 just before
cutting off at 0359* like MWV on 13760. EiBi agrees -0400* while Aoki
says -0500*. Sometimes it`s on much later accidentally in English
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, June 6 at 1502, RHC Spanish S7/S9 but suptorted =
suppressed and distorted modulation; only // 15140 is S9/+5 and merely
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 13760, June 6 at 0358 song in English, VG until cut off
at 0359*. Another station which does not feel obliged to ID at start
and finish of each broadcast! Scheduled is MWV, but confusing
contradixions about programming. EiBi says it`s African Pathways
Radio, to S Asia. But why would they be doing that, rather than KNLS
English hour which is Asian-orientated? HFCC agrees it`s on 40 degree
beam for CIRAFs 41 & 42S = S Asia, altho bigsig here implies it`s
really aimed thisaway across Africa. Aoki does not decide, just
English from WCB; and BTW, V of Korea [North] is also listed on 13760
at 03-04 in Spanish. Bulgarian DX Blog for A22 shows 03-04 on 13760 as
KNLS English at 40 degrees from MWV; while English from APR follows at
04-05 on 11825, also well heard here. It`s also quite possible that
Mahajanga mix up its azimuths and programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.4, June 5 at 2214, S9+26 carrier with tone locally
jamming the CB calling channel.

27185.6 & 27184.5, June 6 at 0354, S9+10 carrier with tone on local
groundwave, not clear which is carrier and which is tone. Zero-beating
one or the other, one hears silence on USB or LSB.

27185, June 6 at 1507, frequency finally clear except for JBA
carriers. No sporadic E skip now on CB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 6 at 0500-0506, UR1 via WRMI, `Ukraine:
Security Issue` for June 5 = day 102 of Russia`s war, by YL anchor;
including: renewed missile strikes on Kyiv; French Pres. Macron
criticized for saying that Putin should not be humiliated. Good via
Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2141 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
June 5 at 2007 the 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9 but
stormy into nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed Sunday June 5 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+5 into Knoxville
SDR. Still running tho replaced on schedule.

Also confirmed, UT Monday June 6 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into
Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 6 from 0302.5 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160
minus 61 Hz = 6159.939, S8/S9 into Maryland SDR; after W.D.C.D.
cacophony running over, 0302 ID. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much
appreciated, thanks this week to generous Dan Sheedy, CA, who sent
to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, ``some $ to help out
your always helpful WoR info group. Cheers from DX-less Encinitas``

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), Sunday June 5 at 2300, WBCQ webcast with music fill
instead of Harry Shearer`s `Le Show`, as I continue listening after
`UBMP` with Roma music. Eventually just dead air, presumably also on
7490 broadcast. 2323 fires WBCQ legal ID, more DA; 2327 finally start
`Le Show` opening; so will it run past 2400? No, cut to ID and `Voice
of Revival`. Something`s mixed up at Monticello (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Monday June 6 at 1954-2000, WRMI successfully
completes relay of VOA`s `Flashpoint: Ukraine`, S6/S7 via Maryland
SDR. Quick check of 15770 yesterday Sunday June 5 sometime during the
19-20 hour heard the ``British Israel`` gospel huxter show not
scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, June 6 at 0606, JBA carrier; and 11825, JBA vs HSNL
= high storm noise level, locally, enough to tell that 3945 harmonix
are still emitted. Some also hear it on X4 = 15780. How about X5? That
would be 19725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Re my log of VX1BB, Richard Langley refers us to:

https://www.rac.ca/special-call-signs-available-in-honour-of-the-queens-platinum-jubilee/
A table showing special prefices, so this is really VE1BB:

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 5 at 0500-0507, UR1 via WRMI, `Ukraine:
Security Issue` now usually starts after very brief UU announcement.
This time voiced by YL#2 with an accent, starting with mortality
figures in the hundreds of Ukrainian children killed by the Russians.
VG into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Correxion: the previous log of Army MARS on 6878.5 was on
May 26, 2020, not 2000, as in this roundup:
http://www.w4uvh.net/ghlogs_2020_0521_0528.txt
Fixed:

** U S A. 6878.5 USB, June 2 at 0000, MARS net introducing a digital
message. 0015, ``6DB`` is asked to make a net call in which he gives
his full call fonetikaly, AAR6DB. I run across this after finding no
pirates on the 6.9 MHz band. I made a much more detailed log of Army
MARS on 6878.5, at the same hour on May 26, 2020, q.v. (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28224.5, June 5 at 1451, K5GJR/B with long slow CW loop,
K5GJR/B EL17. WJ5O roster:
28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL
No other beacons or anything on 10m, so the OSOB. Another one I have
heard before. Limited-area Es propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2141 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday June 5
at 0323 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+8 but heavy storm noise into nearby
SDR, about 20 minutes into so must have started way early circa 0303.

Also confirmed Sunday June 5 at 1355 on WMRI Europe via Channel 292,
Germany, 9670, S5/S7 and noisy into NW Ireland SDR, about 23 minutes
into so started circa 1332. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW [to be canceled? still May 29]
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

** U S A. Among my June 3 FMDX logs, two stations on 92.9, part of the
details unraveled were misplaced. Fixed:

92.9, at 1543, gas promo code FULL; Girl Scout Twin Mints; Southwest
Florida golf ---; RaysPlumbingInc.com - which is in Punta Gorda,
Sarasota County, Englewood, Charlotte County; 1547 ``Kix Country``:
WIKX, Charlotte Harbor, Kix Country, 100 kW/246 m. 1823 km = 1133 mi

92.9, at 1544, CCI to above mentions Ocala; weather: WMFQ, Hot AC, 92
Q, 50 kW/145 m. 1672 km = 1039 mi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 5 at 0633, R. Vanuatu still active on 3 x
3945, S5/S8 direct with ballad. Manuel Méndez, Spain via remote in NZ,
found RV before 0559* today on 5040 instead of 7260 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

William Falk May 28, 2022
America's metastatic cancer --- How rampant distrust is killing us

Schools. Churches. Synagogues. Supermarkets. The victims of the last
massacre, in Buffalo, were still being buried this week when another
disaffected young man armed with an assault weapon slaughtered 19
children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. So far this year, this
broken nation is averaging 10 mass shootings of four or more people
every week. The same country recently passed 1 million COVID deaths —
far more than any other nation.

Tens of millions of people believe the 2020 election was stolen, and
democracy itself stands on crumbling ground. Sharply conflicting
abortion laws will inflame the rancor between blue and red states.
Even the supposedly nonpartisan Supreme Court has split along the
seams, with justices openly expressing scorn and suspicion of the
enemy faction.

These are all symptoms of an underlying metastatic disease: a lack of
trust. The reason Australia had a per capita COVID death rate
one-tenth of ours, The New York Times recently reported, is that
Australians trusted their scientists, their government, and each
other, while Americans emphatically did not. In a very real sense,
900,000 Americans died of distrust.

Americans cannot trust that our kids will go to school without being
shot. We can't trust people to wear masks in a pandemic, because so
many insist they have a right to infect others. We can't pass sensible
gun-safety laws because some people passionately believe they need
weapons of war to defend themselves against government tyranny.

Many Americans no longer trust organized religion, corporations,
capitalism, their employers, or the media. We do not share a common
set of facts and values. We have self-sorted and retreated into our
own worlds, our own websites, social media feeds, cable networks, and
communities. Separated by impenetrable walls of tribal loyalty, we
cannot come together to solve our problems, even when they are killing
us. Thoughts and prayers.

This is the editor's letter in the current issue of The Week magazine.

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS
updated June 4
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Saturday June 4 at 1420, no signal yet
into Buenos Aires SDR, but by recheck 1454, LRA36 is on with song,
S2-S5; occasional 2-way QRM from local receiver overload, so I check
the other three Kiwis in Argentina, four in Brasil, one in Uruguay,
but none have as good a signal, if any. 1459 Hola, formal canned
sign-on with multilingual IDs including English that this is in
Spanish; 1500 Antártida song; 1504 YL talk. It`s really too weak to
understand much. 1505 a few seconds of cacophony. 1509 conversation
seems live. 1512 OTH radar? burst QRM a few seconds. 1529 interview on
phone. 1537 song. 1542 contact info. 1548 phone interview. 1600 more
QRM. 1604 ID with music, song; 1610 weakening, 1616 JBA, 1622 either
off or faded out. There was supposed to be a repeat starting this
Saturday at 1800, but no sign of it in several chex that hour. Maybe
on but still faded out? BTW, I missed checking for it at all on
Wednesday June 1 around 1500. Gary Pence in Dallas was also monitoring
remotely today and says by 1600 it was S9 into LU4AA remote (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9665.070V, June 4 at 0512, RVM, S4/S5 but always
well-modulated, Portuguese and music, the closest it`s been to nominal
9665 in ages after varying even above 9667 lately (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CANADA. 18127.5 USB, June 4 at 2155, VX1BB calling CQ, as a
``special prefix`` from Nova Scotia. So special or new he is not found
in qrz.com. Immediately makes a contact (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185, June 3 at 2221, while I`m logging 10m ham beacons,
see USA, I also check CB, to find huge horrible pulsing noise centered
on major CB calling frequency, hitting S9+52, surely something local
jamming, also wideband, audible as far out as 27090-27270! Still/again
on at 2154 June 4.

[non] On the June 3 occasion, skip was also in with pileups around
27025, 27086; and somebody on 26975 at 2224 IDing as ``NC 113`` (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, Sat June 4 at 0500-0508, UR1 via WRMI, English
war report `Ukraine: Security Issue`, VG into Maryland remote (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2141 monitoring: confirmed UT Sat June 4 at
0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+15/25 direct.

Also confirmed UT Sat June 4 at 0400 on WBCQ R. Angela, 5130, S9/+25
with storm crashes into Missouri SDR. Fortunately, no echo like there
was the previous hour during FTIOM as checked on two remotes, Missouri
and Maryland.

Also confirmed Sat June 4 at 1934 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO via nearby
remote, S9+5 steady, ending at 1955.5, so started a bit early.

NOT confirmed Sat June 4 at 1930 on WRMI 15770: instead, VOA Spe-cial
Eng-lish news and features for the half hour! Now running VOA
1900-2000 except Sunday, Jeff White tells me.

Confirmed UT Sunday June 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, fair but lots of
storm noise into Maryland SDR. Next:

0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0430]
1324vUT Sunday WMRI Europe via Ch 292 Germany 9670
2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

** U S A. Finally my first sporadic E FM DX of the season: DXMAPS
indicates some high MUFs, so June 3 at 1517 UT, I start bandscanning:
on the south-facing porch only a metre above ground level to minimize
local and fringe signals which are always in the way and somewhat
tropo-boosted in the morning; and on the battery-powered DX-398 with
telescopic antenna only, which I can swiftly manipulate vs QRM or to
take advantage of polarizations; PL-880 as backup but not needed: its
tuning is haywire, requiring locking down any frequency tuned lest it
wander around, and certainly no bandscanning with it. Meanwhile a cat
quizically wonders what`s going on upon his favorite table perch.
Primary reference in the aftermath is the excellent WTFDA FM Database.
Distances are approx., city-to-city from distancefromto.net, not
exactly transmitter to receiver coördinates. Note: I do not count
stations, states or anything, and am not in competition. Many logs are
circumstantial after considerable research. I am open to any
correxions or assistance in IDs. Also, the fun for me in this is the
detail and research, despite it taking a lot more of my time than the
original DXing! My eyes glaze over to DX logs condensed to one line as
some editors insist upon.

88.7, first channel checked, since already tuned as I also use it for
internal RF feeding, at 1517, break in `1-A` show, 1518 mentions Troy
Public Radio, so it is: WRWA, Dothan AL, Troy University Public Radio,
50 kW h&v u.o.s., 143 m HAAT. 1287 km = 800 mi

88.7, at 1523, brief CCI to above and/or Ponca City, ID as ``Z-88.3``.
Yes, NOT 88.7. This fits exactly: WMYZ, relay of: WPOZ 88.3, The
Villages FL, ``Z-88``, 35 kW/82 m. That previously unheard-of city of
51K as of 2010y is just south of Ocala. 1702 km = 1058 mi

91.9, at 1525 & 1528, Moody Radio promos vs KS? CCI. Only fit in PTA
is: WMBV, Dixons Mills AL, 62 kW/187 m. DM is a tiny town of 290 as of
2010y in west central Alabama; that`s 4.68 people per kW ERP. 1045 km
= 649 mi

96.5, at 1530, toe fungus and Tracfone ads, 1531 ``Z 96.5``. Only hit
is beyond probable target area: WAZY-FM, Lafayette IN, CHR, 50 kW/152
m. UNLESS search on Z96 without a space or hyphen, ergo: WZNS, Fort
Walton Beach FL, CHR, 100 kW/140 m. Again at 1607, see below. 1238 km
= 769 mi

96.5, at 1531, CCI to above, Spanish music. Lots of LP and a few full
power possible in US, but very likely WOEX Orlando FL, 99 kW/454 m.
1774 km = 1102 mi

99.5, at 1533, ``Big Country 99-5``: altho there is a little WV by
this slogan, rather it`s: KXBL, Henryetta OK, 100 kW/299m, rimshotter
to Tulsa market. I leave these non-DX in for informational purposes.
201 km = 125 mi

104.3, at 1534, promo for something - ``--- Country`` --- too many
possibilities, but not OK or KS

90.1, at 1535, NPRish talkshow, not OK or KS

90.7, at 1536, ballad. This is one of few `open` channels here in
non-comm band, but always with ACI from both sides

93.3, at 1538, ad for Bartow Ford, rock: Bartow is 17K town east of
Tampa, but it caters to the Tampa market where there is: WFLZ-FM, 97
kW/472 m. 1725 km = 1072 mi

94.9, at 1539, classic rock, RDS tries to engage; 1541 ``Tampa Bay`s
best music``: WWRM, Tampa, Magic 94.9, 97.3 kW/470 m. Also at 1628,
below. 1725 km = 1072 mi

92.9, at 1543, gas promo code FULL; Girl Scout Twin Mints; Southwest
Florida golf ---: WIKX, Charlotte Harbor, Kix Country, 100 kW/246 m.
1823 km = 1133 mi

92.9, at 1544, CCI to above mentions Ocala; 1547 ``Kix Country``,
weather, RaysPlumbingInc.com: WMFQ, Hot AC, 92 Q, 50 kW/145 m. 1672 km
= 1039 mi

Also CCI? by YL from Weather Center; 929 Foxy? But no hits on that

94.1, at 1549, Tampa ad; 1550, ``Wild 94-1``: WLLD, Lakeland FL,
rhythmic CHR, 100 kW/455 m [not WILD]. 1759 km = 1093 mi

99.3, at 1553, rap; 1554 ``993TheBeat.com``: WEBZ, Mexico Beach FL,
classic hip-hop, 50 kW/150 m [not a 6 kw in Pine Bluff AR of same
slogan]. M.B. is between Pánama City and Port St Joe. 1362 km = 847
mi

103.7, at 1556, K-LOVE, praise music, RDS with song titles: KYLK,
Okemah OK, 72 kW/282 m. 178 km = 111 mi

93.3, at 1601, mention Orlando; 1603 ``Coast 93-3``; 1604 ``93-3
FLD``?, weather, Tampa Bay, iHeart station: this is mixture of 2
stations: WFLZ-FM, Tampa, CHR, 93.3 FLZ, 97 kW/472 m. 1725 km = 1072
mi; AND:
WNCV, Shalimar FL, soft AC, Coast 93.3, 50 kW/140 m. Again at 1635,
below. Shalimar is between Niceville and Ft Walton Beach on the
Panhandle coast. 1238 km = 769 mi

96.5, at 1607, ``Z96``, RDS is Z96_____ = +5 blank spaces; about
tattoos, ``#1 hit music station``: as above 1530 log: WZNS, Fort
Walton Beach FL, CHR, 100 kW/140 m. 1238 km = 769 mi

96.5, at 1613, CCI to above, ``Alive FM``: WBBL, Richton MS, southern
gospel, 5.7 kW/175 m. Richton is just E of Hattiesburg in SE MS; rare
state by Es, mostly too close. 997 km = 620 mi

94.3, at 1620, Lake City ad, CCI: WNFB, Lake City FL, AC, Mix 94.3, 50
kW/150 m. 1573 km = 977 mi

94.3, at 1622, CCI to above mentions Alabama. Of the 3 AL stations
beyond low-power, most likely this near Dothan in SE corner: WIZB,
Abbeville, Joy FM Network, 19.5 kW/36 m. 1280 km = 796 mi

92.9, at 1624, ``SR 22 Insurance, 800-665-0129``. First thought maybe
name of insurance co. on a state route - highway, but search finds
that refers to an official document form effective in OK and perhaps
elsewhere. But the 800 leads to MT Printing, Kitchener-Waterloo ON.
Why would they be advertising? Maybe just Tulsa

92.1, at 1625 ``Gulf Coast Rock Alternative`` -- no WTFDA hits on any
word in slogan field, but looking at all in Florida, one has that
exact website among remarx!: WECQ, Destin, Rock 92.1, 19 kW/115 m.
1249 km = 776 mi

94.1, at 1627, ``The Bay, Party Station, Y94-1``. No, it`s Wild 94-1,
as already logged above at 1549; WLLD, Lakeland FL, 100 kW/455 m, in
PS Info field: ``WiLD 94.1 the Bay`s Party Station``. 1759 km = 1093
mi

94.9, at 1628, 813 AC - Tampa, Ray Reynolds loans` ``Magic 94-9``:
same as at 1539: WWRM, Tampa, Magic 94.9, 97.3 kW/470 m. 1725 km =
1072 mi [note: when I put a dash between numbers as spoken, it means
no ``point``]

93.3, at 1635, RDS: COAST933. Also mentions iHeart. Same as 1603 log
above: WNCV, Shalimar FL, soft AC, Coast 93.3, 50 kW/140 m. 1238 km =
769 mi

103.5, at 1639, Macy`s ad, ``Power 103.5, Number 1 Hip-Hop Station``.
Merely: KVSP, Anadarko OK, rimshot to OKC: bet you didn`t know native
Americans were into Macy`s or hip-hop. 150 km = 93 mi

By 1640 I`m no longer getting Es DX, from FL or anywhere, so quit, and
shortly checking the DXMAP, see FL is completely out of skip zone now,
moved further to N and W, i.e. MUF if any is skipping right over OK.
At 1748 a quick check on caradio finds no Es either (Glenn Hauser,
Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. In between sporadic E openings into the FM band, June 3 at
2205-2248 UT, I get some lower-MUF beacons on the 28 MHz ham band. As
often the case, when CW beacons are audible I don`t hear any phone
USB stations higher up in band, and vice versa. Listings looked up at
WJ5O roster; https://www.qsl.net/wj5o/bcn.htm --- where crossed zeroes
in calls are really crossed letters in Scandinavia. Many of the same
ones were logged June 16, 2021, q.v., some with additional qrz.com
info. Makes you wonder if only a few in the huge WJ5O roster be
currently active.

28250, at 2205, K0HTF/B - sends nothing but call over and over.
28.250 KØHTF C URBANDALE, IOWA # 3W, INVERTED V New QTH 19 June 17

28251.6, at 2208, JBA with a long message. Also at 2227, K#6KE? Still
JBA with fades, also long 35-second pauses: easily missed when
scanning. No VVV or CQ but starts immediately with call. At 2248 seems
more like KE4J#. Nothing closer than this to match:

28300, at 2214, K6FRC/B, only the call. Haven`t heard him on 13564 in

** U S A [and non]. Another sporadic E FM DX session June 3, this time
on stock 2004 Nissan caradio with fixed antenna, no RDS:

92.1, at 2326 UT, baseball game, but maybe not same station as central
Minnesota ad at 2327 for concrete products, Brainerd. Closest one to
there is: WYRQ-FM, Little Falls, country, 6 kW/91 m. 1117 km = 694 mi

93.1, at 2329, ``93-1, The Border`` atop Kansan: CFOB-FM, Fort Frances
ON, 21 kW/81 m. 1407 km = 874 mi. Right across from International
Falls MN

93.3, at 2334, ``Z 93.3, Today`s Best Country``, Brainerd mention or
is that CCI? KBLB, Nisswa MN, country, B 93.3, 100 kW/170 m. Nisswa is
just north of Brainerd. 1162 km = 722 mi

94.5, at 2337 hard rock f/in/out; 2344 more like praise rock, and
2345, ``taking the stress away from a long day, love songs and
Delilah[?], Y94``. No hits without a space or hyphen. With a space,
only words ending in Y space 94, like MightY. With a hyphen, only one
hit but doesn`t fit format or PTA, FWIW: WYYY, Syracuse NY, AC, 100
kW/198 m. 1993 km = 1239 mi. Maybe not really a Y?

After a break, one more caradio session, UT Sat June 4 at 0137-0207:

94.5, at 0137, C&W, YL DJ, mentions Georgia? Only full power in GA is
: WBYZ, Baxley, Country, Z 94.5, 100 kW/309.1 m - but need more to ID.
1517 km = 943 mi

96.7, at 0139, C&W, got to be Es DX on locally vacant channel. At
0150, romantic rock music

94.5, at 0145, ``Richmond`s Q94`` with CCI: WRVQ Richmond VA, 200/200
kW, 107 m. Look at that power! Old grandfathered station? 1817 km =
1129 mi - not the Richmond in NSW!

97.5, at 0159, C&W music, mix baseball game. Likely Es, anyway.

Nothing more to report until I quit at 0207 UT. Besides all the CCI
and ACI, also frustrating are all the national ads which have no local
references; even some weather reports manage to avoid anything local;
and too much long music trax especially in the evenings (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 4 at 0617, RV is on 3 x 3945 again for a
second night of latest reactivation, S3/S8 with country song (Glenn

Confirmed UT Friday June 3 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 with storm
crashes into far-offbeam Maryland SDR, the first SW airing this week.

Also confirmed Friday June 3 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S5/S9 atop Cuban
pulse jamming.

Also confirmed Friday June 3 from 1815.3 on IRRS SW via Bulgaria 7290,
S5/S7 into NW Ireland SDR, on LSB to avoid USB warble. Also via AM
Italia, Villa Estense, on both 918 & 1323 kHz at equal identical sound
and levels into nearby Noale SDR; but not on LW 207.

As usual I tuned in by 1755 for what might precede: 1323 & 918 in some
talk show; 7290 occupied only by the weak Chinese. 1800 cut to Feature
Story News; and 7290 not cut on air till about 1800.85 JIP FSN and now
// MWs. 1804 FSN Spotlite. 1805 instead of usual News in Brief from
UN, into a kidchorus with a takeoff of ``Glory, Glory Hallelujah`` in
unknown language. 1806 some other music. 1809 intro the ``Top 5 of
1949``. 1810 ``You are listening to the Country Jamboree``, then
cowboy song. 1815 IRRS ID with PO Box otherwise denied, 1815.3 into
WOR until 1845 a show of Irish music.

WOR 2141 also confirmed Friday June 3 at 2030 on 918 & 1323, same good
nearby reception as before, and no longer QRM from Romania presumably
due to later sunsets.

Next: 0130 UT Saturday on 9395, as above (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my log of `Cruising the Decades` on WBCQ, and my
comments, Dan apparently forwarded to Brad Savage and this exchange:

``Brad, There was a report about Cruisin The Decades and how it is not
listed on your page. Is the show still on? Thanks for any update.
Best, Dan``

Subject: Re: radio show question

``Hi Dan! It sure is. We're actually working on a new website for that
show specifically, because the "global" version is now heard on 17
stations across the U.S. and Europe. It's on shortwave (WRMI, WBCQ,
and Channel 292) at various times plus several AM/FM/community
stations.

Here in Ohio, the "regular version" of the show is on The Summit at
5pm on Fridays. We also broadcast the "global" edition shared with all
the other stations, and that is on at 12mid Saturday nights
(technically Sunday morning at 12:01am)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat June 4 at 0050, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`
which I quickly recognize as repeat of last week; insults to
left-wingers. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Finally my first sporadic E FM DX session of the season,
June 3 at 1517-1640 UT from Florida et al.; also 2326-2344 UT from
Minnesota. And also 10m ham beacon DX from all over at 2205-2248.
Researching all this is not finished before I need to dispatch this
report, so will have details for next time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, June 3 at 0630, JBA carrier in bandscan, so I know
R. Vanuatu must have reactivated 3945 and its harmonix, and
immediately tune to X3 =

11835: song unseems ``island music`` past 0636 and none of usual
drumming and announcements at this time; weaker than usual S5/S6.
Manuel Mêndez, Spain and Ron Howard, CA, also caught it back on.

BTW, Vanuatu has made an aid deal with China, which is spreading its
influence among Pacific islands, like already with Solomons;
diminishing Australian, US influence. Ron Howard refers us to:

China strengthening ties with Vanuatu
https://english.news.cn/20220601/b0054fa85650433bb752cf34f5d2f614/c.html

And DXer Bruce Churchill, Capt., USN, ret., replies: ``I hope no one
really thinks that China is only interested in promoting benign
“cooperation” with Vanuatu (or any of the other 10 Pacific Island
nations they are courting). What they are really doing is taking
advantage of total neglect of these nations by both the U.S. and
Australia – in China’s “36 Stratagems” long-term strategy (Google “36
Stratagems” for more info), #12 is “Seize the Opportunity to Lead Away
a Sheep”…in other words, take advantage of (in this case) a power
vacuum when it presents itself. China’s long-term plan for the Pacific
is a threat to both Australia and the U.S., and for those not steeped
in history, think Tarawa, Peleliu, Truk, Kwajalein, Guam, Saipan, et
al., that we had to wrest from Japanese control at the cost of many
thousands of American lives. “Those who neglect history are doomed to
repeat it”, as the familiar saying goes. Bruce``

Remains to be heard if RV will keep going on 11835 rather than a
one-shot like the week before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, June 2 at 0007, no signal from KVOH even tho WWCR
finished with 9980 at 0000. O, I see on KVOH sked that altho Spanish

starts SW at 0100; strange.

BTW, WWCR normally makes some schedule adjustments on June 1, but
website https://www.wwcr.com/transmitter-sched.html still does not
show a new schedule after May 31 expiration! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, June 2 at 0010, WEWN must have fixed its night Spanish
transmitter, now back on air after a few weeks - S9+20 with call-in,
discussing gas prices, Juan Carlos. Not exactly RCC liturgical stuff,
but anchorette frequently exclaims ``gracias a dios`` so projects
piety. English, longer gone from 9385 at night, is still absent at
0152 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5985, Thursday June 2 at 0605, open carrier. Nothing
scheduled; best guess is WRMI-2 on air for some reason despite
extremely reduced schedule: on transmitter grid it`s Monday only at
0500-0600 with System F but yellow instead of red. On System F grid in
red it`s ``Yeshua Messiah Min.`` 5985 also appears as System K in
green at 0400-0430 NHK in Spanish, which is long gone. In Aoki, 5985
at 0500-0600 UT same for UT Monday but also UT Sunday with `La Rosa de
Tokio`. EiBi Shows `LRT` Sunday only, Argentina non; but also has not
expunged deleted 0330-0500 5985 entries (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
