** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sept 7 from 1446, monitoring LU4AA SDR
in Argentina for LRA36 -- nothing yet this Wednesday. Gary Pence is on
it too. Finally cuts on S9 at *1519, bit of music and standard canned
sign-on, with staff names; 1521 Esperanza themesong; 1525 clip of an
old OM radio voice and YL about SW in Argentina; 1529 tango?; 1531
``su cía`` ID, and intro as the *18th* program of the 2022 season, on
``dia de la radiodifusión``, which *was* 27 de agosto! So this is a
rerun of that date I already reported on, q.v. instead of anything

1533 geo coörds; base was founded on 17 dic 1952. Temp `now` minus 17
C, feels like minus 22 with 70 kph winds from SE, gusting to 95;
sunset? time 17h27 local. 1535 contact info; 1538 rock song; 1540 date
27/8/1920 is being commemorated; 1545 song; 1547 ID with frequencies,
``Nacional, la Radio Pública, mentions Horacio Guarany, chatting with
music background; 1555 OM voice of some ham about setting up ham
station in Antarctica as an act of sovereignty [aha! Argentine
imperialism, hi]; 1605 ID with ``Nacional, nos une``, weather again;
how LRA36` first broadcasts were on 6030, later to 15476 ``AM`` [NOT];
1610 song; 1614 ID with staff names again like sign-on but this worx
as sign-off, since then off air at 1615* and still off past 1630
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BENIN [and non]. 1566 kHz, Sept 7 at 0343, JBA carrier; and an even
weaker one at 0345 on 1467. NW USA & SW Canada DXers have been
reporting these TWR transmitters around 0345. Despite the extreme
trans-continental distance, they can hear them, so I should too! WRTH
shows 200 kW on 1467 but 100 kW on 1566. The lower may have a less
favorable antenna pattern, eastward for Nigeria.

Schedules in WRTH are under SOUTH AFRICA! along with other TWR site
Swaziland. In language order it`s tough slogging, finding when these
are supposed to be on, in what. In WRTH it seems the only morning
entry for 1476 on page 494 is VARIOUS languages to Nigeria at
0315-0550 daily. Both also much more in local evenings, but
disregarded as never to be heard here afternoons. EiBi is much more

Not on before 0430? WRTH does show 1566 in English at 0320-0330 M-F,
0430-0500 Sat, 0530-0545 M-F. Also Hausa 0330-0430 M-F, 0345-0430

gaisma.com shows Parakou sunrise currently at 0540 UT, and at less
than +10 degrees north, varies little over the year, as late as 0600
six months from now. When I`m getting Benins, at 0347 the only other
9/kHz carrier detected is 711, presumably 300 kW Morocco (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 7 at 2113, R. Cairo carrier at S5/S9 into
Maryland SDR with humwhine; 2115 timesginal about 10 seconds late and
extremely distorted music as English program modulation starts.
Something`s abysmal at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 7 at 0656, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati. Ron
Howard wonders whether they are silent Sundays since neither he nor I
could hear it Sept 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 7 at 0655 direct, no signal from VON.

Sept 7 at 1728, checking Canary SDR, unavailable, blank H2Ofall, as
operator EA8BFK advises ``If you don`t see any signal, the antenna is
used for the radio station!`` for transmitting, I assume. 1739 SDR
revives for receiving, and VON is on at 7255 minus 67/69 Hz =
7254.932v, S9+10 but hard to follow, noisy in English (Glenn Hauser,

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Sept 7 at 1450 UT, Enid`s only local TV signal,
K17JN-D, the 3ABN translator is back on air for first time since
vanished July 8 as I have checked almost every day. Lineup:
17-1, main 3ABN
17-2, no bug, but ``unsupported audio CODEC`` on Sanyo screen, OK thru
STB; Amazing Facts, AFTV
17-3, Hope Channel, HopeTV
17-4, HisWORD, or LLBNWor
17-5, Audio only program, 3ABN-MR
17-6, Audio only program, Radio 74
17-7, Audio only program, 3ABN-RL, but silent

I`m informing rabbitears.info that it`s back on [as part of market 50
OKC tho no way to see it there without heavy tropo; and with a
different old lineup] (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed Sept 7, token English from REE, 2218 presenting a
movement from Fantasy for Guitar and Orchestra, by Manolo ---, who
died in late August at age 78. First tried UTwente, but is not well
situated for any of the four frequencies, 11670 best; now S9/+10 via
Virginia SDR for 17855, but some distortion marring the music (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.007, Sept 7 at 2200, VOT English is on today, S9+40/45
into UTwente, VG signal and modulation this time. 2243 starting later
in the hour than usual, `Feeling Supreme: Healthy Life` about natural
remedies for vertical swings --- what?? No, it`s ``varicose veins, a
disease``, until 2251; as already heard on Friday August 26. 2252
sign-off with jumbled English schedule; 2253.6 IS starts playing, off
at 2255.8 before any German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Not much storming over CONUS, diminished noise
level allows me to rehear some ND MW beacons at bedtime bandscan,
0701-0708 UT Sept 7:

359, SDR, SnyDeR TX, 25 W
356, ODX, Ord NE, 25 W
353, LI, LIttle Rock AR, 400 W

The Okies: 341 EI EnID and 350 RG OKC still on; 255 SW StillWater and
515 PN PoNca City still off (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2154 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: World of Radio, Canada geese are flying, Fall is coming,
7780 kHz, not beaming towards Alberta, monitoring and confirming the
latest for #2154, 9955 kHz, listen creek fm/stream internet; 40 years
of shortwave listening since 1982, Aug 19, 20. 60th Anniversary time
at CIDX gathering in Sherwood Park, Sep 16-18, 2022. WRMI:

9395, 0032, 0042 QSB fading moderate, 0059, Sep 1 UT 2022 [Thu; 2153]

Confirmed Tuesday September 6 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 into
Maryland SDR with lite Cuban jamming at first; by 2258 built up to
heavy in preparation for R. Libertad, of which there is none in Cuba.

Also confirmed Tuesday September 6 at 2356 the 2330 on WRMI 9395,
S9+25 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed Wednesday September 7 at 1056 when I happen to awaken,
the 1030 on WRMI 5850, VG direct.

NOT Confirmed Wed Sept 7 after 2100 on WBCQ 7490-, rather replaying
last week`s 2153! Since the first and only 7490 airing is 6 days after
produxion, now it`s almost 2 weeks old! Next:

** U S A. 9395, UT Wed Sept 7 at 0000, right after WOR on WRMI, `Jazz
from the Left` - coast, that is. Altho a recent upload, may be old
repeat or host is way out of touch: says he is Tuesday afternoon on
11580! A frequency WRMI abandoned years ago; in fact nothing anywhen
on the 11 or 13 MHz bands, why? These would provide good coverage at
least in daytimes, especially in seasons-B. He also mentions this time
but I think not as on 9395, but was it 7730, or 7780? Current sked
grid for JftL shows: Sat 2200 9395, Sun 0200 9395, Tue 2000 on System
B, but ``internet only`` instead of 9955; Wed 0000 9395 & 7780. DJ has
really laid-back style (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932.05, Sept 7 at 0647, R. Vanuatu is JBA vs CODAR, not
detected on 11898+ at first but yes, JBA carrier at 0653. It seems
that frequency change time is now 0659/0700, after which Ron Howard
found a totally different set of harmonically related frequencies!

``Sept 7 - After 0659* UT on 7932 kHz, I went looking for Vanuatu. Not
on the usual frequencies. Found Radio Vanuatu on new 8620.22 kHz, as
measured on my old Eton E1 (am sure someone can get a more accurate
measurement!); mostly fair; // 4310.11 (poor) // 12930.33 (very

0705-0716 UT: News/sports in Bislama. 0731-0801: Interview in English
about investments (talking about gov't bonds, National Bank, low
interest rate loans, interest rates, "Investments not all in one
basket," etc.). 0802+: Speech in Bislama about domestic violence in
Vanuatu, violence against women, Vanuatu's Women Center, etc. Wonder
how they are coming up with these strange frequencies? Ron,
California`` --- More replies on the WOR iog:

``Hi Ron, Thanks by the tip. I'm hearing Vanuatu on 8620 and 4310 poor
to fair signal at 0928, 09/07. 8620 better. 73 Lucio Brazil``

``Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain: Hi Ron, checked right now, 0945, 07-09,
via SDR Kiwi remote receivers in New Zealand, on air on 4310.19 and
harmonics 8620.37 and 12930.57. Comments, ID "Radio Vanuatu", Island
songs. Good to fair signal on 4310.19 and 8620.27, weak on 12930.57``

Ron follows up at 1002: ``Thanks very much to Lucio and Manuel for
their quick check of Radio Vanuatu's new frequencies. Also thanks to
Mauno Ritola for his more accurate measurements:

"Thanks, Ron. I have extremely faint audio also here in Finland on
12930.565v kHz. Checking via Neil Findlay's Brisbane Perseus I get
those at about
The carriers are fairly stable, but something wrong with entering the
fq in the transmitter? I wonder where they are at 1830? Mauno"

Appreciate also hearing from Craig Seager: "Goodness! All three heard
here too 0745, reasonably well - appears to have really gone rogue,
and continues to drift. Couldn't muster up the 4th harmonic, though -
a bit late for here in that range."`` [all via Ron]

I was about to contact Adrian Sainsbury of RNZ who has assisted many
Pacific islands fix their transmitters; but Wolfgang Bueschel already
tried that, to: <asainsbury@radionz.co.nz>

``URGENT NZ help --- These catastrophic frequency deviations of past
few days, urgently call for a competent transmitter technician from
the 'NZ third world to help' - fly in from NZ to Vanuatu. the local
Vanuatu technician people can't handle the FQ disaster ? 73 wb df5sx
wwdxc germany``

but it bounced! ``Adrian Sainsbury retired from NZ radio / telecom
recently, and his former mail address doesn't functioning anymore,
sorry. 73 de wolfy df5sx`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Tuesday, September 06 2022

** ALBANIA [non]. 7730, Sept 6 at 0618, R. Tirana via WRMI, really
nice folk music resembling Greek that I could not tune away from, 0627
closing English, IS, theme and still opening misaligned German as if
on ``3985``. RT continues to ignore WRMI relays. This will shortly
turn off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA. 17600, Sept 5 at 2114, very weak Arabic pop music? S0/S2,
obviously TDA Béchar, OSOB except for inbooming SPAIN - a tremendous
disparity between two? hi? powers not that far apart but of course
with differing azimuths, REE thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 6 at 0637, RHC, S9+30 in wrong language Spanish
news instead of English which is on 6165 only and unusually much
weaker, only S9+10/20 and undermod. 5040 also Spanish. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. The Other Side;

``Fidel Castro: The Destruction of the Cuban Nation
'In addition to the trauma of forcing Cuba's economy to operate under
socialist planning, we must add the underexamined effects of Castro's
personal interventions in the economy'
Jorge A. Sanguinetty Miami 05 Sep 2022 - 23:49 CEST...``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13820, Sept 6 at 2118, residual pulse jamming JBA where Radio
Martí resides never in the A-seasons, and about the same on 13605,
where RM is in the A-seasons but never later than 2000*. But they`re
covered, protected, just in case! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Sept 6 at 2119, RHC Spanish suptorted at S2/S5 but
soon fading to JBA. Much louder and less distorted on // 13740 at
S4/S7. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Sept 6 at 2126, JBA carrier direct, presumably R.
Cairo. 9439.994+, Sept 6 at 2159, S9+20/40 into UTwente, hugely
distorted, totally worthless. Something`s always egregious in Egypt
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Sept 6 at 0616, VON is S9/+10 direct but

7255-, Sept 6 at 1730, no signal into Canary SDR; unfortunately I had
left volume turned up while #2 in queue and out of the room, so noise
blasted out at first. At 1740 nothing on 9690, and only Chinese? on
11770. 1825, still nothing on 7255- (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 27025 AM, Sept 6 at 2108, ``W in Puerto Rico``, leave
it to some CBer to prove that skip is viable, among hets from a few
others piling up on this most active channel. I have just been
bandscanning 10, 12, 15m hambands with NO phones, and not even beacons
on 28 MHz; and nothing but a weak unID bilingual on 18137 USB at 2112.
Assuming he is really in PR; also has some serial number in a CB DX
group. Meanwhile SPAIN inbooms on 17855 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 17855, Sept 6 at 2112, REE is S9+, despite K-index
of 4 at 2100, OSOB except for a much weaker 17600 ALGERIA. Since it`s
Tuesday no SpEnglish an hour later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 5, VOT extraneous German after 2300 chopped off
air at 2342* when the sloppyrator woke up; something`s always
erroneous at Emirler. Sept 6 at 2217, still no show of English into
UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE. (7730), presumed still at 0500, Sept 6, UR1 via WRMI,
`Ukraine: Security Issue` war summary in English, copied later via:
with the heavily accented and fast-talking caster so played back at
0.75 speed. or even 0.5, including: does not start with date but
mentions Day 194 in passing; settlements liberated; R army lost 49,800
servicemen; U destroyed over 2000 enemy tanx, over 4500 armored
vehicles, and more than 1000 ártillery systems, over 200 jets and over
205? cruise missiles shot down. Past day R launched 25 strikes,
against both civilian and military infrastruxure. Mykolaiv shelled
with S300 missiles. R not ready for peace negotiations, only language
understood is force. Statements from Czech Republic and Germany.
Germany to aid displaced people (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 245 MCW kHz, Sept 6 at 0642 UT, FS, 400-watt ND beacon at
Falls, Sioux, SD.

293 MCW kHz, Sept 6 circa 1500 UT long after sunrise, FBY, 25-watt ND
beacon at Fairbury, second-adjacent state Nebraska. Could this
possibly arrive by groundwave? 422 km = 262 miles. Or remnant skywave
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15120, Sept 6 at 2116, S9+35 of open carrier already, VOA
Grimesland warming up for 2130 Bambara M-F, OSOB by far. What a waste?
Not unusual to be on even earlier. Also exemplifies how overseas
stations could reach deep N America with such a relay, if they cared
to; and this of course is directly off the back, forward aim being W
Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2154 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday September 6 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S8/9+20 into Maryland SDR.
Inserted before WOR and after canned ID, usual dire warning from Jeff
White: ``and now the world is in turmoil``! Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Sept 6 at 0634, WRMI AWOL from here while still going
on 9395 at S9+10/20 but not 9955 either. 9455 still/again OFF at 2125,
while 9395 remains and weaker 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 6 at 1531, NO signal from WLCR/WBCQ, again. I
have run across it at various other times, but much more interesting
when it`s absent. OK, OK, I happen to notice 9330.1v is on, Sept 6 at
2126 in English, S9+20 but with splatter from 9350 WWCR, a measly only
100 kW whose rhombic achieves blasting S9+60! here, not even aimed
thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932.056, Sept 6 at 0612, NEW FREQUENCY for R. Vanuatu,
JBA music and talk vs CODAR. Therefore the fundamental 3945 which used
to double on 7890, must have shifted to 3966! May have been there for
a while since much better heard X3 on 11835 has been missing. Many tnx
to discovery by Ron Howard, who reported on the WOR iog Sept 5:

``Very nice Radio Vanuatu (7932 kHz. - 2nd harmonic) audio! -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXxMEwl0Mvs .
0558 UT (on audio 1:55-03:02): The often heard Mental Health PSA.
0601-0604 (on audio 5:00-8:00): News in Bislama; starting and ending
with the usual theme music for the news. So we should also be
listening for the 3rd harmonic on 11898 kHz. and also the 4th harmonic
at 15864 kHz. Ron, California``

Earlier replies: Don Moman, Alberta: ``just noting a faint signal on
7932.050 at 0512, music and talking under the sweeper/CODAR signal.
Wasn't there before 0500.``

Walt Salmaniw, BC: ``Don, noticing the same with weak audio from
Masset at 0525 check``

Don: ``English ad and Radio Vanuatu ID around 0600``

Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain at 0628: ``Hi Ron, thank you very much for
the timely alert, I am not in Friol or Reinante today, here in Lugo
only a weak carrier on 7932. Via SDR Kiwi remote receivers in New
Zealand good signal but nothing on 3966, neither on 11898 nor on
15864. It is possible that 7932 is the frequency in which they are
emitting and it is not a harmonic? --- Closed on 7932 at 0659. Bests

Don: ``they were very good signal here by 0600 and for a long time
after until I tuned out.``

Back to gh myself: 11898.086, Sept 6 at 0608, JBA carrier, presumed RV
3 x 3966.03 --- this is *much* weaker than it used to be on 11835.
First I had a very slightly stronger JBA carrier on 11897.538, no idea
what, could be local birdie. After that, I made 7932.056 log.

Note that 11895 is normally dominated by CRI English via EAST
TURKISTAN, std denunciation, at 05-09, but not much from that tonight,
with higher-latitude paths degraded. Nothing around 15864 either.

Before seeing my 11898+ report above, Ron Howard posted: ``VANUATU.
7932, Radio Vanuatu, 0535-0659* UT Sept 6. Again being heard, but on
this new frequency; seems this must be the fundamental/primary
frequency (*not a harmonic*), as no carrier heard on 3966 nor 11898;
CODAR QRM, as also reported by others. After 0659, I couldn't find
them anywhere (2485, 3945, 5040, 7260, etc.). Here are a few

Tuesday, September 06 2022

** BRAZIL. 4985, Sept 5 at 0631, music S5/S7, quite separable from
RTTY QRM by LSB tuning, i.e. R. Brasil Central, Goiânia. Sounds the
same on S1/S2 11815 but not trying to match // on second receiver,
both too weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Sept 5 at 0046, RHC Spanish, S9+25 but suptorted,
flanked by 11840 parasitic spur too weak to hear any mod; and weaker
11860 vs jamming remnants. //11670 slightly better. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, Sept 5 at 0622, RHC English again on this
``Spanish-only`` channel overtime, S9+10 but distorted. Other English
still on: 6165 VG S9+20/30; and 5040 instead of Spanish at 0632,
S9+10/20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9590, Sept 5 at 0051, S8/9+5 with flutter, soft YL
song in Spanish, what`s this? CGTN Radio = CRI Spanish service for 4
hours at 23-03 via Kashgar, or as Aoki spells it, Kashi-Saiba; land of
imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.994v, Sept 5 at 2200, no signal from R. Cairo English
sesquihour at midpoint into Maryland SDR. Something`s always abysmal
at Abis. Over to Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 5 at 0634, significant carrier no doubt
from R. Kiribati, and nothing else on 9-kHz channels (Glenn Hauser,

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 5 at 0621, VON is on, at S9/+10 (Glenn Hauser,

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.4 AM, Sept 5 at 0044, S9 of undermodulated music
relayed by local Enid CB pirate, // 97.7 so KHRK Hennessey is still
the beneficiary probably without even knowing it (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7375, Sept 5 at 0037, RRI English with Cuban
pulse jamming. It is extremely irresponsible to schedule your own
broadcast on any frequency ever, at some other hour, or at some other
season, occupied by Radio Martí, for it is then subject to collateral
damage from irresponsible Cuban jamming, even if the HFCC
registrations imply it be clear!!! RRI also on // 9550 but weaker; and
that has some INTRUDING 2-way on 9550.5 USB. EiBi shows RRI at 00-01
on 7375 only, not caught up with reactivation of the other
Tsiganeshti, while Aoki shows both (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday September 5 at 2200 REE token English achieves
all four frequencies into Maryland SDR. This one is S9/+15; 11940
S7/S9, 15520 S5/S7, 11670 S3/S5, as apropos target-wise. The only
other 16m signal on the H2Ofall is a weak 17600, obviously Algeria.

Justin Coe says this show will intro the new third person in the
English sexion, Hélena Rigobert [sp? sounds like but never spelt out].
She gets to do her first broadcast as the sports bit at 2204 ending
the news. 2205.6 music and feature: Justin says EE has been a twofer
since 6/21 when Alison Hughes retired [I think Amy Egan must have
started about then, or a bit earlier?] H.R. is a Catalan from
Barcelona. Some music breaks for one of her favorites, a boogie-woogie
pianist. They discuss Madrid, cable cars, etc. 2214, ``Mishu`` is a
Korean name for any cat and it`s mixed up with the U State of Missouri
[or Mizzou?]. Korean? O, part of her background is having spent time
in P/Busan, Korea South at an English-language radio station for
expats and Koreans learning English, BeFM, befm.or.kr [WTFK? 90.5 &
103.3: https://befm.or.kr/main.php?lang=eng - bilingual homepage]. She
did not perfect her Korean, but after she went back to Spain, still
filed live reports for their morning show causing her to stay up till
3 am. 2219 tune `The Balearic Shuffle` - she has been to four of the
islands, Justin to only two. Short flight from Barcelona; several
hours by ferry if you take your car and stay overnight. Then she was
working for Radio 4, the mostly-Catalan network. 2225 a final tune,
`Apocalypse Boogie`. It was never explained how and why she speaks
English - well, with a slight accent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9870, Sept 5 at 0057, VOT IS interspersed with Spanish IDs
carefully pronounced ``Esta es la Voz de Türkiye``, no longer allowed
to call it Turquía, S6/S8; sked 01-02 also on 7260 unchecked i.e.
INTRUDING in the W Hemisphere target exclusive hamband (Glenn Hauser,

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 5 at 2200, no signal from VOT into Maryland
rather than English ``to`` N America; something`s always erroneous at
Emirler. Over to Noblejas --- but 2230 recheck, now VOT is on having
started late, S9/+10 and .002 kHz plus, soon intro apparent new
feature, `New Day, New [illegible]`, about climate change.

Rechecked at 2324, oh2, it`s still on +.003 kHz with extraneous German
program, familiar theme of `Feeling Supreme` but I can`t make out the
title auf Deutsch; Türkiyeisch accent doesn`t help. Until the outro at
2332: `Gesund-Leben`, equivalent to the subtitle auf Englisch. 2335,
`Wussten Sie das?` = `DYKT?`. Immer etwas irrtümlich zu Emirler. I
wonder if dozens of languages present the same program segments in
translations? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), UR1 via WRMI circa 0500 following day,
`Ukraine: Security Issue` as copied later via:
for Sept 2, Day 191, including: R trying to prevent IAEA from
determining state of nuke plant; not allowed into crisis center;
workers not allowed to talk to mission. 2-hour visit only, but 5
stayed on. Journalists supposed to accompany, but not allowed in.
Lithuania says Zap. plant poses threat to countries beyond. R will not
de-militarize plant. No day goes by without civilian casualties.
Donbas extremely tense, but R not take control of entire Donetsk, U
holds 50%. R moved deadline to Sept 15. U continues counter-offensive
in south. R lost more than 900 elite military during war per BBC.
Almost 49K Rs killed. R forming new forces for winter offensive.

for Sept 3 [said 4?], Day 192, including: Strategic turning point
still far away. Enemy still has large margin of strength. U army
receiving American aircraft. $ 100 million allocated for training U
pilots. Biden requested another $ 11 billion to support U. U continuing
to destroy Russian logistix. R trying to build pontoon crossings where
bridges have been destroyed. U offensives in Kherson region continue.
Enemy`s weaknesses in logistix, management and command. Anti-aircraft
missiles destroying R cruise missiles. More than 7K U civilians
killed, more than 5K injured during war. More than 22K shellings of
civilian infrastruxure. 76% of Russian civilians support U civ
killings? Occupiers constantly shelling area of Zap NPP, blaming U for

for day 193, including: R has fired at least 3500 missiles into U;
more than a dozen settlements in Donbas under fire. Most youth and
families already left, elderly remain. They will be without water,
electricity in autumn, winter, should evacuate. R occupiers banned
humanitarian goods importation, medicine. None delivered to hospitals.
Genocide of U people in temp occupied terrs continues. IAEA at Zap
NPP. Turk pres conversation with Putin. To meet on Sept 15-16 at
summit in Samarkhand, Uzbekistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2154 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday September 4 after 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S5/S8
but noisy into nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 5 at 0035 the 0030 on WRMI 7780,
S9/+5 direct.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 5 from 0302:19 on WBCQ Area 51,
6160 minus 62/67 Hz = 6159.933 to .938, S5/S7 into Maryland SDR, with

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 6160-, Sept 5 at 0102, something on Area 51 via
WBCQ is quite buried by S9+45/50 splash from 6165 RHC as some American
traitor asserts how much better Cuba is in numerous ways. More
easterly, I think, WBCQ sometimes QRMs Cuba, as these two neighbors
refuse to distance themselves for mutual benefit (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 5970, Sept 5 at 0101, RCM, WEWN is back on night frequency,
S9+35 of Lord`s Prayer in Spanish - it seems the Lord never tires of
`hearing` it; what an ego-booster! But 0624 recheck, 5970 off again;
no longer all-night, or sporadic? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Sept 5 at 0621 check, RV still off (Glenn Hauser,

** VENEZUELA. 4940, Sept 5 at 0627, praise music in Spanish, S7/S9,
the long-running 24 hour pirate carrying `Fuerza de Paz` missionary
programming, which I rarely bother to log. Shortly after it appeared,
we got a TDOA to the same area which Rafael Rodríguez, Colombia now
reports, G.C. 7.20 north, 69.00 west, in SW Venezuela near the
Colombian border:

``Greetings from Colombia, Thanks to the activation of a KiwiSDR in
the town of Facatativa, very close to Bogotá; I can perform a
radiolocation of the signal in 4940 kHz through the TDoA function that
these receivers have. I do it through the kiwis located in Bonaire,
Boavista and Facatativa. I attach the image with the result. Although
this is not conclusive, it reaffirms my theory that the signal
originates in Venezuela according to the image from Estado Apure.
Rafael Rodriguez R., Bogotá D.C. - COLOMBIA``

WRTH 2022 places it under COLOMBIA as the only SW station left, in
Arauca with 1 kW, but keyed as DC26) since RRR himself is QSL manager
with a mailing address in the capital district. It seems to me its
ambiguity, no callsign or known license to one country or another,
qualifies it as a PIRATE (not Clandestine), but seldom acknowledged as
such, e.g. not reported in Free Radio Weekly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

haven`t seen any advance publicity about the QSY (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Sept 4 at 0630, VON is on at S7/S9.

7255-, Sept 4 at 1857, tune-in via Canary SDR just in time to hear VON
sign-off in English, drumming IS, vs open carrier from CRI, but
holding its own tho slightly off-key as result. Did not get frequency
measured exactly in time. 1900 CRI IS overrides, Turkish via Kunming
far beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960, Sept 4 at 0048 tune-in direct, two AM pirates
are colliding producing slow SAH, then stronger one goes off, leaving

** OKLAHOMA. Seen first UT Sunday Sept 4 at 0100 on OETA World, 13-2,
`Gallery America` is produced monthly but then aired at least twice a
week until the next edition. About 19 minutes into, Shattuck Windmill
Museum shows `tune your radio to 90.3` to hear Windmill Willie. We
visited there years ago when there was no FM sign. Unique museum!

** OKLAHOMA. 88.7, Sept 4 at 1515 UT, surprised to hear classical
music here instead of KLVV gospel-huxtering from Ponca City, usual
fringer, rather KWTU Tulsa, only 5 kW ERP at 325 meters. APRS shows
