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

** CUBA. 13680, Jan 3 at 2101, RHC in Brazuguese. This frequency still
not picked up by Aoki or EiBi, altho I already reported it Dec 17 at
2121. It may be sporadic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Jan 4 at 0222, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but JBM, along
with JBA carrier parasites 11840 & 11860, while 11760 is much better;
and 5040 is S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 4 at 0225, R. Rebelde only S9, must be QRP, as 4765
Progreso hits S9+20, and 5040 RHC S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Jan 4 at 0727, RHC S9+20/30 in Spanish, on way beyond
when any Spanish is supposed to SW. In fact it was still going at 0840
per Bryan Clark in NZ, and could pose a problem for Vanuatu if it
resume. At least Jeypore, India is out of the way. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350 MCW kHz, Jan 4 at 1606 UT, RG, 400 watt ND beacon
``Gally`` at Will Rogers World Airport, southwest OKC, is BACK! Had
been off for 2 days. AFAIK there were no crash landings during (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PERU. 4810.0, Jan 4 at 0725, JBM talk and music S9 audible in LSB
mode only vs STANAG, presumed R. Logos. Some may hear it best by
tuning to 4808 as read-out but the carrier frequency is what counts
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 3 at 2302, NO signal from VOT English to North
America, into Maryland SDR. Just in case also checking UTwente, where
it pounds in on the way to us - not there either at 2307, but weak
Chinese is already on instead of *2310. Now that makes a JBA carrier
into Maryland. Still no TRT at 2355. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2119 monitoring, next:
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Jan 4 at 0228, no signal from WRNO. But it`s on at
0723, S9+10/20 but distorted praise music. Something`s always
mis-modulated at Metairie (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 4 at 0230-0241+, and still/again past 0358, S9+20
of dead air from WTWW-1 except for some hum; meanwhile 5085 WTWW-2 is
nominal. Wake up, Ted. PPPP`ll get you (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1200 kHz, January 4 at 0744 UT, once again gospel huxter
fighting it out with WOAI San Antonio, making a SAH, no doubt KFNW on
day pattern or ND, and could easily be day power of 50 kW. About it
from ``North American News``, edited by Andrew Brade, January Medium
Wave News:

``1200 KFNW West Fargo, ND – station has a CP and Programme Test
Authority for a new antenna installation, at a new site, with the same
facilities as previously. The station is still licensed for 50 kW days
and 13 kW nights, both with a directional array from a four-
tower installation of which three are used during the day. The pattern
for the directional array is to the north. Pending the relocation of
the towers, KFNW had been operating under a non-directional STA since
June 2021 with 10 kW days and 3.25 kW nights`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, January 4 at 0242:
531, 612, 639, 837, 855; and that`s all (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, Jan 4 at 0728, JBA carrier. I might guess 4KZ,
Innisfail, Queensland, but sunset in nearby Cairns is not until 0855.
Aoki shows Vanuatu also on 5055 as well as 5040, but neither now?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

We are pleased that even here in deep-red Enid OK, our right-leaning
local newspaper dares to front-page this:

Hauser
** CANADA. 351 MCW kHz, Jan 3 at 0422 UT, dash and YKQ, 500 watt NDB
at Fort Rupert / Waskaganish, Québec. I was tuned to 350 USB, another
check for RG in OKC, still AWOL. This is at the southern tip of James
Bay near the Ontario border (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [non]. 11790, Mon Jan 3 at 1607, Horn-of-Africish song, talk
mentions Iesus Christ, S7/S9. It`s Bible Voice in Oromo via Nauen,
GERMANY, per Aoki Sun/Mon/Tue only with other Ethiopian languages in a
convoluted schedule until 1800. What a shame Canada`s #1 SW voice to
the world are gospel huxters instead of RCI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non?]. 5040, Jan 3 at 0432, S7-S9 open carrier, RHC? Too
weak unless something be drastically wrong; too strong and too early
to be Vanuatu. 5025 Rebelde is also much weaker than usual.
Something`s always wrong? at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Jan 3 at 0450, RHC Spanish, S9+20, overmodulated &
distorted, modulation cutting out. This is the Antillas service
supposed to switch from 9710 at 0000. // always weaker 9535 for C
America. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Jan 3 at 0452, RHC English here instead of alt. 6165,
VG S9+30 and good modulation; propaganda claiming Cuba is ``not on its
knees``, and the ``economy is viable``. Time for another link to The
Other Side, altho not exactly the same subject:

``Like the Prosecutor's Office, Cuban judges turn their backs on
justice in the trials against 11-J protesters --- They have not
challenged the lack of arguments to support the crime of sedition, nor
the absence of impartial witnesses against the accused.
Lucía Alfonso Mirabal, La Habana 03 Ene 2022 - 16:29 CET``
https://diariodecuba.com/derechos-humanos/1641223798_36544.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 1670+, Jan 3 at 0720, music making a low audible heterodyne
on the plus side of talk from WOZN Wisconsin, which had been the
dominant 1670 here, surely the new, Mexican as Terry Krueger,
Niceville FL, has just measured: ``1670.05 MEXICO XEFCR Reynosa,
Tamaulipas 0718 12/23/21 Still here and on the high side with nonstop
pop oldies``. Otherwise I have a tough time getting Mexican X-banders
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350 MCW kHz, January 3 at 1555, RG, NDB at OKC is still
off the air. Guess flights into/outof Will Rogers World Airport don`t
really need it. Other Okies remain off for a long time: 255 SW
Stillwater, and 341 EI Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11815v, Jan 3 at 1606 UT, VOT Turkish is strong enough to
audiblize squeal on transmitter, much like WEWN; could it be the same
model? Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2119 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
January 2 at 2101 on IRRS SW vis AM Italia, 918 kHz, S9+19 into nearby
Noale SDR, atop CCI likely Madrid; following 2100 full IRRS ID with
address.

Also confirmed Sun Jan 2 at 2330 on WRMIs: 9955 S9 into Maryland SDR,
no jamming audible; and 5950 at S9/+10.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 3 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+10/15
into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 3 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+5 into
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 3 after 0230 on WRN North America webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 3 at 0402 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160, -57 Hz
into Missouri remote = 6159.943, VP signal after a coughing fit from
0358 by JL?, 0402 ID. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 5085, Jan 3 at 0433, WTWW-2 is unusually off this early, and
along with it the parasitic spurs circa 5072 & 5097. Then I see this
posted at 0415:

``[WOR] 5085 transmitter problems --- Not sure whether anyone else
noticed, but 5085 suddenly dropped off the air sometime about an hour
ago (now 0413). Clearly a fault of some sort. Just now, I'm catching
microsecond bursts of speech, so they're trying to fix things at WTWW.
I was enjoying their music program while working in the shack. Hope
they make it back soon! 73, Walt Salmaniw, Victoria, BC`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3360, UT Mon Jan 3 at 0255, I go to the Athens GA remote
which is still tuned for me to 3360, but NF from WWRB is off already.
Did not get it reconfirmed at all this weekend. Span seems shorter on
Sunday night than Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, Jan 3 at 0448, S4/5 of dead air, must be WEWN English
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1030, Jan 3 at 1546 UT, YL in Spanish. Got to be KCTA Corpus
Christi TX, I thought, until finding one other possibility in NRC AM
Log, WGSP 50 KW Memphis TN. And KCTA program schedule shows English at
this time, in fact very little Spanish: Sat 19-21 UT only.
https://kctaradio.com/blog/program-schedule/
BTW, KCTA stands for Know Christ The Answer, a back-formation? Maybe
that`s why so little Spanish, hard to come up with a KCTA slogan; any
ideas? Korpus Cristi Tejas Abla? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, Jan 3 at 1550 UT, KLEY Wellington KS still
dead-airing, for the record (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1200, Jan 3 at 0722 UT, the original ``Clear Channel``
station, WOAI San Antonio with C2CAM reincarnation nonsense has severe
QRM from a gospel huxter in English, sometimes overriding WOAI. Hard
to separate by nulling, since this has to be KFNW West Fargo ND,
almost exactly opposite direxions from here. U4 50/13 kW, night
pattern supposed to be totally northward; day pattern with lesser lobe
to the south. At times, WOAI also gets battered by WRTO Chicago but
not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. Re: ``13830, Jan 2 at 1527, S Asian? song, S9/+10,
announcement and 1528 VR IS, 1530 ID ``Ye ---`` mentions Ethiopia.
This is VR Amharic at 1530-1600 from SMG site, but no other language
from it or anywhere is scheduled before 1530. Remarkable signal, about
the same as 13820 Martí, another example of VR capability to serve far
from its intended targets``

I bet what I heard at first 1527 was VR in Malayalam, frequency
switching misaligned. Per WRTH 2022, that`s supposed to be on 7320 &
9595 both Tinang, USAGM Philippines, violating Separation of Church &
State, at 1510-1530, so immediately preceding on program feed line
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Jan 3 at 0427,
perfunctory and not digging to the usual depth, finds stronger ones on
612, 711, 882, 1053, 1107, 1215. 612 surely not the just-reactivated
only MW from Jordan, 100 kW, but the 300 kW from Morocco, like 711
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 600, Jan 3 at 1552 UT, sports talk and ad in skywave
remnant; daytime groundwave WMT IA is only a trace at best. ESPNs are
KROD El Paso TX and KVNA Flagstaff AZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 620, Jan 3 at 1543 UT, Spanish from KTNO The Metroplex
TX unusually in daytime has CCI from algo making a fast SAH maybe 10
Hz. Skywave remnant, also showing up on many other frequencies. Two
most likely/closest/westward sources are: KJOL Grand Junxion CO, and
KTAR Phoenix AZ, both 5 kW ND. Will MWoffsets help? As usual, no: CO
not measured, AZ/TX only 0.7 Hz apart. Next candidates, KMNS IA and
WJDX MS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9666.546, Jan 2 at 0722, RVM continues upward drift, S6/S8
music. My last measurement was 9666.468, Dec 29 at 0311, just over 100
hours ago, up 78 Hz, or .78 Hz/hour, or averaging 18.72 Hz/day (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 2 at 0727, R. Rebelde is back on with music,
S9+10/20 after AWOL 24 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, Jan 2 at 0425, RHC English is S9 but undermodulated VP
on 2 x 6000. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
See also TURKEY [and non]

** CUBA. 6100, Jan 2 at 0731, S9/+10 RHC English is buried by its own
humbuzz, which is usually found on 6060, no doubt same transmitter but
by now no other frequencies are on. Maybe this one remain pending
weekly Esperanto at 0800 Sunday. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350 MCW kHz, Jan 2 at 1523 UT, NO signal from RG, ND
beacon at Will RoGers World Airport, OKC. This has been a very
reliable constant `local`, more so than other Okies and Kansies: not
my receiver as 515 PN Ponca City still in well; KS on 332, 395. Maybe
due to extreme cold snap in OKC: WRWA low a sesquihour earlier was
12F. Still off at 1818 UT Jan 2 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9700, Jan 2 at 0357, RHC is S7/S9 with
undermodulated music // 6000 English service. At *0358 hit by fast SAH
from VOT IS, as now the two are colliding about equally, TRT starting
a 2-sesquihour transmission in Turkish thisaway. Something`s equally
erroneous at both stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11815, Jan 2 at 1601, Turkish news? S9/S6 with flutter. VOT
still here, not 11810 as someone reported. Way over trace of Japan
co-channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 397 MCW kHz, Jan 2 at 0739 UT, JBA ND beacon seems like CIT,
tho last letter uncertain. It`s really CIR, 25 watts in Cairo IL. RNA
notes: ``20181130 - Bill Stewart reports a 'hic-up' on the 'R'. Often
sounds like CIN`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re 486 kHz, WI2XLQ, On the IRCA iog, Kraig W Krist says:
``Reception report, including brief recording of ID, emailed to Brain.
Already received an email confirmation of reception. I actually heard
transmission on 485.951 kHz. Brain admitted transmitter varies a bit.
He wrote the following.

"The MOPA rig does drift a few hundred hertz every 4 to 6 hrs. If I’m
in the shack and see the freq counter or waterfall display is >150Hz
off from 486, I just give the “wavelength” control a fine trim to get
it back on 486. It’s a 1921 design (wavelength back then, not
frequency!) and I’m happy the thing stays as stable as it does given
it’s just an LC tank with a UV-201A tube as the oscillator. The L is
just cloth covered wire wrapped on a cardboard tube mounted on ceramic
standoffs to the wooden chassis. "

I've created a QSL card for Brian to use when confirming reception of
WI2XLQ. To see the WI2XLQ QSL for the December 31, 2021/January 1,
2022 transmission on 486 kHz, go to the USA section of
http://www.kg4lac.com
For those having heard the transmission commemorating Reginald
Fessenden's accomplishments send a valid reception report to Brian
Justin, WA1ZMS, using wa1zms@att.net
73, Kraig, KG4LAC`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 2097.3 CW kHz, Jan 2 at 0720 UT, one-letter beacon, A, is
JBA every dekasecond vs noise level, as it has consistently been
lately, from anywhere but Quartzsite AZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2119 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday January 2 at 0030 on WRMI 7730; at 0048 via Knoxville SDR S8/9

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 2 at 0452 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO,
S9+10 into nearby KiwiSDR, about 4 minutes into so started late circa
0448.

Missed checking Sun Jan 2 at 1330 via WMRI Europe, 9670 via Channel
292, Germany. Anyone hear it? Next:

** U S A. 5950, UT Sunday January 2 at 0030-0045, new show debut on
WRMI, `Postcard Panorama`. Tammy Walker mixes poetry with radio stuff,
interesting combination with listener input. Last several minutes
turned over to the voice of DJ Roseanna of Radio Northern Europe
International; checking her website http://rnei.org I find among other
things some stats we don`t see elsewhere concerning WRMI, here
concerning boresights of the NW and NE beams:

5850 KHz (2.378 Megawatts EIRP) AM – Targeting the USA and Canada,
7780 KHz (3.28 Megawatts EIRP) AM – Targeting North-East coast America
and Northern Europe, Note: EIRP levels are calculated based on the ERP
information from the transmission companies``

As for `Postcard Panorama`, this is the only known airtime, but I have
the impression there may be one new show per month, repeated weekly.
Anyhow, each month, not week, has its own theme. See:

** CUBA [and non]. 9700, Jan 1 at 0732, still 0743, S9+20/30 of dead
air from RHC in English, or Spanish? No other frequencies still on, 5

** U S A. 5800, UT January 1, 2022 from 0200, WRMI with `Nochevieja
Panamericana` special hour provided by Uncle Bill Tilford, and Luis
Vallebueno co-hosting, mostly in Spanish but some English. VG
reception direct to the R75 and E-W longwire on 5800, but even better
SINPO 55555 via the Knoxville TN SDR, at steady S9+18. The // 7780 is
VP by comparison, but at 0220 I do find it S9/+10 into UTwente SDR.
Anyhow I`m at the computer so prefer to listen that way; and also keep
an eye on several TV NYE specials. Here`s a summary of what I heard
after the first few minutes, and reported to Luis for eQSL:

0209 greeting in English from Alan Roe, UK
0210 Carlos Gardel music
0213 music from Maracaibo
0217 costumbres de Venezuela
0221 Gayle Van Horn greeting
0222 pasacalle traditional ritmo, Ecuador
0225 Thomas Witherspoon greeting
0229 ID by Bill in English, YL voice in Spanish
0230 Jeff White greeting; WRMI Okeechobee now for 8 years + many more
0231 merengue from Dominican Republic
0234 Fred Waterer greeting
0235 Veracruz music, Cuban influenced
0242 Julho in Brasil in English introduces a NYE pop song from 1951
0245 vals from Perú
0248 greeting from Guillermo Glenn Hauser in Spanish: formerly with
[Espacio DXista], Radio Enlace, Mundo Radial; still welcomes input in
Spanish for World of Radio after 2100+ episodes
0249 song from Chile
0254 ``5 para las 12`` song
0258 QSL info in Spanish and English: at least 15 minutes of details,
SINPO, etc. to vallebueno@gmail.com
0259.5 to Zanotti WRMI ID
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Jan 1 at 0100, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW`,
but Allan`s initial comments sound familiar: picking nose, toilet
paper, Angela taking horse-riding lessons. Yes, it`s a rerun so
tune-out by 0105. From mid-north Indiana, John Carver agrees:

``For what it's worth, Glenn. 4790 and 6160 are carrying Brother Scare
tonight instead of Allan's show. Signal from 7490 went to hell about
half way through the program. Impossible to copy now. I still believe
tonight's program is a rerun. John, Old and in the way`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Jan 1 at 0736, S9+30/40 of dead air except for some
hum on this WWCR, while the others are OK, 3215, 5890, 5935. This
happens again and again. Is anyhuman present at 1300 WWCR Avenue
overnight? That would seem to be prudent with 4 x 100 kW SW and 1 x 50
kW MW transmitters running. The place burned down once before, or was
it twice? If so, dozing or not paying attention. However, no loss with
repugnant programming, mostly dead Brother Scare or dead Gene Scott
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 485.9 kHz, Jan 1 at 0725 UT, JBA carrier direct, perhaps
the Fessenden experimental special from Forest VA, WI2XLQ, during
final 24-hour broadcast to end at 2000 UT Jan 1. Not trying harder to
hear it now, since I definitely had it last week via closer remote at
Bakersville NC, about 310 km = 192 statute miles away.
(Distancefromto.net is screwed, insisting that Forest VA is in San
Antonio TX or the UK, so I measure Lynchburg VA instead). Lots of IRCA
MW DXers were trying to hear it this week. Here and I expect far
beyond, there are storm crashes from a line running from SE OK thru AR
into KY, much like the Xmas tornado track (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. (5035-USB), Dec 31 at 2159, I`m not trying to hear
Unique Radio via a remote, but bring up the NYE special webcast that
Jennifer Weinbrum has started. Direct link is:
http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/index.html?sid=1
I am ``1 of 50 listeners, listener peak: 6``, whatever that mean. Jen
did a count-up, rather than -down for 2200 UT = 2022y in [part of]
Africa, but her clock was 2 minutes slow at least via the web.
Continuous stereo music since including something Horn-of-Africa-ish.
Spot chex past 2330 still hear music only. She is going to conclude
with a Unique Radio DX test, much like US MW stations with various
distinctive sounds, 0900-1000 UT January 1, in four quarter-hour
segments (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, Dec 31 at 0700, S5-S6 of JBA English with whine, 2 x
6000 RHC. 6000 itself is S9+20 with same pitch whine but JBM, until
chopped off at 0701.5*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. At 2220 UT Dec 31 I posted: ``[WOR] *2022 in Spain --- REE
Spain usually has quite a NY celebration before and after 23 UT. I
suppose the token English will be skipped, 9690, 11670, 11940 and/or
12030. Glenn``

9690 is by far best into Virginia SDR when I start listening at 2240,
much better than 12030 and just detectable on 11940, 11670. Radio
Nacional is being relayed, pop music, greetings from celebrities; 2300
chimes, cheers and explosions, ``Feliz 2,022``; could hear someone
speaking English in background. 2304 song ``Año Nuevo de Esperanza``;
2317 playing an archive NY greeting from someone in 1963, more peppy
music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5000, Dec 31 at 2359, mandatory monitoring of WWV up to
``zero hours, zero minutes, Coordinated Universal Time`` and full
top-of hour ID after 0000 UT January 1, 2022, but no mention of the
true Jahrwechsel. Must do it again at 0600 when it`s local midnight
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2118 monitoring: in last report the UT
Thursday Dec 30 at 0130 logs were of course still the last repeats of
WOR 2118, not yet 2119 as typoed.

WORLD OF RADIO 2119 monitoring: confirmed UT Friday December 31 at
0330 on WRMI 5985: as usual here their weakest signal, JBA and theme
barely recognizable vs noise level; Virginia SDR gets S9+10/15 with
adjacent jamming splash from 5980. TWR Boa Vista S9+5/15 including
high noise level making it JBA. Knoxville TN SDR is best, only S6/S9
but less noise.

Also confirmed Friday December 31 at 1530 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 direct,
no jamming audible.

Also confirmed Friday December 31 at 1915.4 on IRRS via AM Italia, 918
kHz, Villa Estense, S9+10 into nearby Noale SDR, above CCI from La
Inter, Madrid. As usual I tuned in earlier also to SW // 7290 via
Bulgaria. VP at 1900 S7-S8 into UTwente and seemed just barely
modulated with `Feature Story News`; LSB required to minimize ChiCom
ACI splash from 7295. Instead of UN News and other talk, 1905-1915
played some Xmas music; at 1925 WOR is S5-S6, too much splash to
listen on narrow AM or AM Synch, so I move out to a better skip
distance, west Iceland, better S5-S7 on SAL mode, complete to 1944.

Also confirmed Fri Dec 31 at 2130.5 on AM Italia 918 kHz again, S9+10
over the CCI, after unknown talk show chopped off at 2130 for IRRS ID.
Recheck at 2157, 918 is already off the air! So at least two minutes
of WOR chopped off instead of only one last time. Now La Inter, Madrid
is atop 918. Next:

** U S A. 1130, Dec 28 at 2158 UT, very strong plug for ``LSU sports
station``, so KWKH Shreveport LA, skywaving while still on 50 kW day
power and non-direxional pattern, way over the open carrier from KLEY.
At night KWKH is much less favorable, direxional westward. Date
correct; overlooked in previous report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
