Hauser
** CANADA [and non]. 245-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0610 UT, dash and YZE, ND
beacon 1000 watts at Gore Bay, Ont., and per dxinfocentre.com ``TO BE
DECOMMISSIONED 2020-09-10``; and mixing with FS, 400 watts at Sioux
Falls - Rock SD, anticipating less QRM.

326-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0615 UT, short dash and YQK, 200-watt ND beacon
at Kenora, Ont.; I was tuned to 325-USB

413-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0628 UT, dash and YHD, 250-watt ND beacon at
Dryden, Ont. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 3 from 1345: none higher than:
13020 JBA; 12190 JBA carrier; 11460 S5-S7; 11440 JBAC; 11155 JBAC,
else? 11150; 11120 S3-S4; 11100 JBAC; 10960 JBAC; 10920 S2-S3; 10820
S3-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Sept 3 at 0557 once again no VON (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 20, Sept 3 at 0345 UT a UHF/VHF bandscan prompted by
minor area tropo of levels 3-2-1 between here and OKC, per Bill
Hepburn`s maps does get something: a mostly solid signal on RF 20 into
my still broken antenna, from DTV 42-1 KBZC-LD. A rare glimpse of an
``Enid`` TV station, in Enid! Axually, Enid is only the community of
license, why? while the transmitter site is the NE OKC Antenna Farm
along with all the major TV and many FM stations, just south of the
Kilpatrick Turnpike, per rabbitears.info, 7.2 kW ERP at 328 feet above
ground. Approx. 100 km from Enid. Has 7 channels, all with same PSIP
ID: KBZC-LD. First I survey the content of each channel, then compare
to r-e listings:

42-1, commercials, but is Quest, logo circle-Q in lower right, 0400
reality show Ice Road Truckers
42-2, infomercials, no bug
42-3, BUZZR, bug LR, game shows
42-4, GetTV, bug LR showing part-time
42-5, infomercials, no bug; but at 0400, `Bonanza`, whence??
42-6, infomercials, no bug
42-7, ShopLC - formerly Liquidation Channel
This is one of those DTV America outlets providing a minimum of real
programming, certainly nothing new or informative.

RF 21, at 0358 UT Sept 3, slightly weaker bad signal starts to decode
while a top-of-screen streamer IDs as ch 19, KUOT. Listed as 5
channels of 3ABN stuff, 15 kW ERP from much further, the SE corner of
OKC, near SE 95th and Bryant (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed Sept 2 at 2200, VOT cuts on just in time,
allaying fears of yet another no-show, S9+40 as monitored via UTwente.
Usual features; news, press reviews, `This Day in History`, `Did You
Know That?` between music breaks, COVID-19 PSA, but by 2220, yet again
no `Letterbox`, just more great Turkish music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 365-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0624 UT, ND beacon AA, which is 100
watts from Fargo - Harwood ND. I was tuned to 363-USB (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: confirmed Wed Sept
2 from 2100:18.5 on WBCQ 7490.057v, sufficient S7 via Rochester SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thu Sept 3 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA here.

NOT confirmed UT Thu Sept 3 at 0130 on WRMI 5010 & 5850; instead music
continues from RNEI, which is now scheduled at 0100-0200 Thursdays;

WOR has been moved, as I requested, 24 hours later to 0130 UT FRIDAYS
on 5850 and 5010 - which means that will be first SW airing `hot off
the press` minutes after it`s finished produxion, starting with #2050
Sept 4, unless there be some problem holding it up (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. Re my WRMI log under CUBA [non], of 5800 in Spanish after
0300 UT Wednesday Sept 2, assumed to be an expansion of R. República
from UT Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon only, I later check the skedgrid now updated
as of Aug 30, showing that hour really occupied by the Argentine media
program La Rosa de Tokio. WS & WOR remain at 0300-0400 UT Tuesdays,
and also a new repeat of `Encore` on UT Thursdays; the other days
remain blank hiding the existence of Radio República. But should R.R.
wish to expand to 7 dpw we`re all gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Sept 3 at 0553, WRMI is S9+10 of dead air instead of
SMTV; which had returned to normal after a couple days of
double-audio; silence in compensation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13093.6, Sept 3 at 1343, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
one side with very loud ``engine noise``.

10828-USB, Sept 3 at 1350, 2-way in Spanish, both encountered during
CNR1 jammer bandscan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1646 UT September 3

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sept 2 at 1450, LRA36 is on this
Wednesday; neglected to check a week ago; via Brazil KiwiSDRs, S5-S7
talk at first, all Spanish about something in 1945y, arbor day and
forestation which is probably not concerning Antarctica; via another
remote only S1-S2 and starting to fade out by 1545; 1554 usual canned
`Corazón Antártico` program ID and song, 1606 still audible but not at
1610, presumed off. Nominal 1400-1600, but Manuel Méndez, Spain says
it opened around 1350; he too could only hear it via Brasil. At one
point I downtuned to 15475.00, reconfirming on USB that there is still
a reduced carrier. Presumably to be repeated circa same hours or later
on Saturday, weather permitting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 2 at 1355-1400: nothing in the
WOOBs of 13, 12, 11, 10 or 9 MHz, tuning past all the usual spots.
K-index at 12 and 15 was 2, SF 70, no storms per WWV. This will
present a problem for frequency-order editors, who have got to have
some kHz to hang it on; even tho this obs of no signals heard is no
less significant than when some are. Well: there was a JBA carrier on
9680 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 2 at 0321, R. Progreso is still OFF; what`s wrong?
Something, always at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Sept 2 at 0330, RHC English is only S5-S8 and JBM,
sounds like Arnie as to be expected for `DXers Unlimited`; while the
only //, 6000 is S8-S9 and also just barely modulated, so listeners
are out of luck until maybe some better frequency after 0500 such as
5040, 6100. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, Sept 2 at 0342, CRI Cantonese relay hour is only S7-S9
maybe due prop disturbance instead of blasting in, yet also open
carrier/dead air. What a waste. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 5800, UT Wed Sept 2 at 0324, WRMI with R. República,
and no jamming audible yet, tho the signal is quite strong even here,
yet aimed SSE toward Cuba. Originally this extension after 9490 France
to 0300-0400 was UT Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon only, so now 7 days? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 7275.057, Sept 2 at 0334, VOT English to us intruding into
our 40m exclusive hamband, only S5-S9, JBA with Turkish music fill,
and markedly off-frequency. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring, next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5850 to NW & 5010 to S NEWs

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to:
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9315-9345, Sept 2 at 0340, WLCR in British via WBCQ is
splattering out to this range from S9+30/40 fundamental 9330. Seems to
me this is excessive despite the very strong signal. Wondering if it`s
500 or only 250 kW, as some of the closer targets were so registered,
I check HFCC, which displays imaginary info: Nothing on 9330 between
0100 and 0900, rather 6195 at 0300-0400 in German! Despite WBCQ-6
*never* able to reach any frequency but 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Sept 2 at 0321, WRNO is still OFF; what`s wrong?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. Correxion to last log of JBA 3945 harmonic carriers only,
as Ron Howard points out, not X4 and X3 on 11835 & 7890, but X3 and
X2. There is a X4 on 15780 not detectable here. How about further up
in the closer daytime Pacific? Check 19725, 23670, 27615, 31560, etc.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 2 at
0310-0318 UT: 531, 549, 612(2), 621, 684(2), 711, 756(-)birdie?,
774(2, or beating against a birdie), 828, 837, 855, 891, 1044,
1098(2), *1107(2), 1125(2), 1134; none higher but the QRM splash is
worst above the `clear` channels.

*1107 strongest of the lot so 0319 try for some audio, and detect a
bit of music which is not coming from 1100 or 1110. Big gun on 1107 is
400 kW from Afghanistan, but far more likely are the five Radio 5
synchros from Spain ranging from 10 to 25 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5780, Sept 2 at 0324, JBA carrier, as often detectable
in our evenings. Suspected one of the Euro-pirates, such as Radio
Harmony if it run all-night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1835 UT September 2

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 1 at 0612, RHC English is S9+30 but JBM; 6145 is
S9+20 but sufficiently modulated. Last night`s parity is long-gone.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Sept 1 at 1837, RHC Kriyol at S9+10/20, // 11760. And
not on 15140 where it is supposed to be with 13740 off air between 14
and 21, 11760 off between 18 and 21. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Sept 1 at 0610, again zero signal from VON to
begin another month. It`s been so sporadic that we do not yet draw any
conclusions of a permanent QRT. Besides,

11769.894, Sept 1 at 1519, S6 VP signal in African? language, typical
VON offset, vs. RHC 11760 splash out to plus/minus 20 kHz. 1859
recheck, still a JBA carrier. Wolfgang Bueschel agrees:

``11769.894 kHz, Voice of Nigeria from Abuja, requested as Igbo
service. Talk by male presenter. At 1620 UT on Sept 1st. Proper S=9+30
or -46dBm powerful signal into Europe today. [selected SDR options,
span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Sept
1)`` and four days earlier:

``11769.893 kHz, Voice of Nigeria from Abuja, probably in English. At
1804 UT on Aug 28. Sideband splash signal disturbtion of S=9+35 or
-39dBm powerhouse, from adjacent CRI Beijing in Germany, via big bcast
center in Kashgar, western China {East Turkistan}. Noted in Liverpool
England and Netherlands Perseus server-net. [selected SDR options,
span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Aug
28)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 31 at 2200 and still 2220, no signal from VOT
English to us. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.

9830, Sept 1 at 2200, VG S9+40 VOT signal at UTwente as YL yet again
opens this broadcast claiming it is at 1230 on 15450. Now it may well
be necessary to do one English broadcast per day at mid-afternoon, and
play it back for all the subsequent English times. But they should say
so, so at least the sign-ons make sense. Of course, we`re lucky they
are even uttering the correct current season time and frequency for
the original. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
September 1 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG S9/+20 at UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Tue Sept 1 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG at TWR Bonaire
S9+5/15. I leave it on in the background but notice about 0350 that
music is playing! ME-ish world music fill, so for some reason dumped
out of this new WORtime well before it finished. Rarely does a week go
by without some problem with WOR playbax, so we are fortunate with
redundancies.

Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5850 to NW & 5010 to S NEWs

** VANUATU. 11835 & 7890, Sept 1 at 0614, R. Vanuatu X 4 and X 3 are
both but JBA carriers tonight. Propagation disturbed (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 711.0, Sept 1 at 0616, JBA carrier while no TA`s are
audible, not even 621 altho there is HSNL from OKC area which is being
flooded by up to 8 inches of rain in some suburbs. But it`s strong
enough to get a rough DF separable from 710s, as ENE/WSW, which rules
out Cuba, and probably too clockwise for Morocco either. What
Unitedstatesians are along that axis? Surely not the biggies WOR NY or
KSPN LA; how about KBMB Black Canyon City [Phœnix] AZ? There is no
longer a 710 in Sonora. XEDP in Chihuahua used to be off-minus by an
odd amount but not for a year or two (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 11900, Aug 31 at 1354, south Asian music and then talk
by YL in unrecognizable language; S7-S9, outstanding SSOB except for
the Cubans and nons. 1359-1400*, Reach Beyond, Australia, sign-off in
English sounding more `merican than `strine, not Ecuadorian. Now to
figure out language: Day 2 = Monday at 1345-1400 Aoki/NDXC shows it is
Cha; EiBi shows CHG --- I guess they both refer to Chhattisgarhi as in
WRTH 2020 but now outdated B-19 sked had no such DOW, TOD, nor
frequency for it.

But the revised A-20 update as of May 26 confirms it. Now, where and
how many Chhattisgarhi speakers are there? EiBi`s readme.txt shows:
``CHG Chhattisgarhi: India-Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Bihar (13m) [hne]``
So there we have three different abbrs. for this obscure language but
spoken by more than the population of e.g. Illinois, who must be
Christianized!

11825, but wait, there`s more: Mon Aug 31 at 1449, gospel huxter in
English also bigsig S7-S9. While E Asian signals like CNR1 jammers are
JBA carriers. This is RBA daily at 1430-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 7850-USB, Aug 31 at 0610, CHU is weak, but even
weaker is CCI from 2-way USB almost same frequency, maybe Brazilian or
Spanish. Not first time such intrusion has been detected (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 31 at 1355-1359: none audible in the
16s, 15s, 14s, 13s, 12s, until JBA carriers: 11500, 11460, 11440,
11170, 11150, 11120, 11100; none in the 10s; 9300; finally 9215 music
achieves S3-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Aug 31 at 0238, no signal from R. Progreso, quick check
on TWR Boa Vista just as I am mentioning its absence on WOR.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145 & 6100, UT Mon Aug 31 at 0616, RHC `DXers Unlimited`,
Arnie`s prop info seems a bit dated, then outro as the mit-week
edition, so despite `Ed Newman` then pointing out that there are two
per week, must have been playing the wrong/old one, and 0619 into his
`Mailbag`. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But the two last
frequencies on air this late both enjoy good modulation (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ISRAEL [non]. (9955), WRMI webcast UT Mon Aug 31 at 0400 I check
what`s on it after SW turns off: news all about Israel, Gaza, i.e.
Israel Radio or whatever they call it now as scheduled for a full hour
on WRN web/satcast. But by 0450 or so, wild world music with WRMI ID
by BB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Aug 31 at 0614, once again no signal from VON, not
on 9689.9 nor 11769.9; altho the latter is still being reported in
their evenings. But 11770 at 1714 Aug 31 via UTwente only Chinese
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday August 31 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct but some deep fades:
this week #13 transmitter does not dump off air before 0100.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 31 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+10 via
UTwente; also on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 31 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+20 via
UTwente; and also for second week surprise 5800, S9+10/20 via TWR Boa
Vista KiwiSDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 31 from 0259.5 on Area 51 webcast; and WBCQ
5130, S3-S7 via Rochester SDR; closing 0328.5 on 5130 direct S9+10
including HSNL.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 31 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20, no
jamming, better than where aimed at TWR Bonaire and Boa Vista. 0358
Maine SDR at S9/+10. As always cuts off the air by 0400* before ID can
finish. See also below for 9955 webcast 0400+. Next:

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 31 from 1800.6 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria;
S9+20 via UTwente with Synch readout as 72900003.71 Hz. Autonotch
checked somewhat reduces the 7291 warble, but no way to get rid of the
heavy splash from 7280 Vietnam and 7290 Iran. Continues intact past
1810. However, tuned in earlier: *1755 carrier on; 1758.4 bumps up
power so quieter; 1758.8 JIP WOR already running for a few minutes in
Belarus [non] item; 1800 interrupted for quick IRRS ID only, FSN
headlines, 1800.6 restart WOR. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 NEW to SSE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 5950, Aug 31 at 0620, SMTV repetitive music beat suspected
of double audio feed but not so obvious until 0623 talk which is
horribly duplicated, or is it triplicated. Evidently no one at Okee is
monitoring, like no one beyond cares to listen to this cult, as it was
thus 24 hours ago; and also in between on 15770 as Wolfgang Bueschel
noted:

``15770even WRMI, two time double echo program, SMTV - echo some 1 1/2
second audio later repeat, S=9+20dB at 1610 UT on Aug 30; in Detroit
MI, Rochester NY, and Aberdeen NJ US states Perseus server net (wb
df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Aug 30)`` --- I could not find this by
searching on 15770 since he attached `even` to it! See also ISRAEL
[non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, Aug 31 at 1451, WWCR-1 S9+10, while an hour before
was a JBA carrier. Sporadic E has hit it; DXMAP shows some MUFs to 27
MHz, altho not directly between us. By now it will be a rare day for
any FM DX but at least had a few good openings this summer (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9-kHz JBA MW carrier search, Aug 31 at 0637 UT; only 846
presumed TP KIRITIMATI, and 621 presumed TA CANARY ISLANDS. No 711,
while 710 is dominated by on-frequency Rebelde CUBA // 5025 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Re August 29 missing LRA36 broadcast of
Buenos Aires productions, Wolfgang Bueschel sends an automatic
translation:

``-------- Original message --------
Fw: Shipments from the Antarctic (LRA 36), among others in German :-(
Date: Sat, 29 Aug 2020 14:46:14 +0000 (UTC)
From: RAEDeutsch <raedeutsch@yahoo.com.ar>

Dear friend! We have just been informed that the program scheduled for
today unfortunately not broadcast due to a severe storm, so a new date
is planned for it. Pity! LG from rainy Buenos Aires and have a nice
weekend! Rayén Braun - German editorial team`` --- what`s LG?

At 2150 I recheck Brasil remote, just in case it came on in time for
English, but nothing. Some hours later I consult Accuweather for
conditions at Esperanza: ``Current Weather 9:05 PM: -31°C, RealFeel®
-60°, Air Quality Fair, Wind SW 87 km/h, Wind Gusts 120 km/h, Cloudy``
--- that is certainly extreme, but the people and the equipment are
stuck there anyway, so why not broadcast? Was there damage to rhombic
antenna? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Aug 29 at 2134, RNA is S4-S7 and suptorted. Don`t
they know at Rodeador Park site, or don`t they care? Hardly the only
SW station which keeps transmitting despite severe defects, reflecting
very poorly on the station and the nation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, Aug 29 at 2342, RHC in Spanish // 11760. Checking
since Rick Barton, AZ, heard English on 11670, Aug 23 at 2320. That
hour is supposed to be on 7385 and 5040. I do hear it poorly vs HSNL
on 5040, but only a JBA carrier on 7385, surely something else,
probably TIBET tho WHRI is also registered. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. Free Radio Service Holland: S8-S9 but noisy on both
5789.910v and 7700.136v via UTwente at 1755 rock music, 1757 as 200th
broadcast, acknowledging web receiver listener in Buenos Aires.
Supposed to be running until 2100. Is site really in Netherlands?
Plenty of private stations are now licensed, but this remains pirate?
Sorry, but I would rather listen to `Pipedreams` $ tereo organ music as
usual Sundays 17-19 UT, and `With Heart and Voice` at 19-20 via WYSU
webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670.00439v, re my report of FTIOM & UBMP test via Channel
292, Friday Aug 28: ``...But fading up by 1725 to S9+15 peak on
9670.00439 locked, almost tolerable, back down to S7. Is anyone else
listening anywhere with better reception? Glenn`` --- Dave Kenny, UK,
replies Aug 29 to the WOR iog:

``Reception on 9670 was very good on SDRs in Ireland and in the west
of England yesterday. I also checked on a couple of Spanish receivers
where it was OK too – but not as good as Ireland/UK. Twente is far too
close for the skip at 9 MHz and the Lisbon receiver seems fairly deaf
and noisy. 73s Dave`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun Aug 30 at 0000, The Mighty KBC via
Nauen, GERMANY, is opening at only S5-S7. Kraig Krist now confirms
that from next week, the Sunday-only 0000-0200 broadcast will revert
to 5960. I check that now and hear nothing, tho CNR 100 kW ND from
Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, land of ChiCom persecution of Uyghurs, is
still in HFCC from 2330 until 1800, and presumably still
off-frequency-minus, a CCI problem further east, especially circa
Europe, but KBC won`t move (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Aug 30 at 0558, again no signal from VON.
Wolfgang Bueschel says at 0851 Aug 30, ``7254.9v 06-11 UT requested -
vague imprecise -, nothing heard here in past days, empty channel this
Aug 30 morning also`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, Aug 30 at 1451 daytime, NDB PN Ponca City is
still OFF; 341-MCW, EI locally Enid is still on but JBA. Yesterday
afternoon could hear EI on the N/S shortwire, but not on the magloop
which may be having problems (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U K [non]. 12095, UT Sun Aug 30 at 0431, BBCWS via OMAN, VG to
UTwente at 320 degrees, with première of new show until November,
`Comedians vs The News`. Alan Roe found the only other SW frequencies
would be 13580 also Oman, which goes out at 10 degrees and much
weaker; and 9915 via Madagascar, which I was trying before 0430 but
not as good on remotes altho it should be the only possibility
directly into North America if checked. The co-hosts say they are a
Canadian Lesbian married couple, also bi-cultural obviously from their
names. Their two other foreign guests this week are from India and
Mexico, as they satirize current news; fun show, and can be found on
podcasts via https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3ct0x37 where Alan says
he also will have to get it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085) $ tereo WTWW-2 webcast, UT Sun Aug 30 starting at 0026
after hamstuff, anonymous theatre organ music show from Bob Heil in
Belleville IL. Yes, he never mentions any program name, so I still
call it `Theatre Organ [NOT] in the Ozarx`. or TONITO. Most of this
show is ``virtual`` performance by Len Larsen(sp?) who sent some kind
of memory card which Bob inserts into his own organ to run it, pulling
stops, etc., but without keys going up and down. LL had previously
sampled the best thorgans around the country for each simulated
instrument! Runs until 0056.5, back to rock.

After this at 0100-0200 UT Sundays, I habitually listen to `Encore`
classical music, VG via WRMI 5850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Aug 30 at 0601, SMTV via WRMI with double audio feed
echoing; has happened before, wonder how? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265V, Sat Aug 29 at 1356, WINB playing Dixieland, `Saints
Go Marchin` In`, 1359 ID distorted. As always the frequency is
constantly wobbling, as no one else ever mentions. Is on air mornings,
only weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Sun Aug 30 at 0604, S9+10/20 of dead air again from
WWCR, while 3215 & 5890 are Brother HyStairical. Happens over and over
in nightmiddle, automation misprogramming? as if, zzz, no one at 1300
WWCR Ave know or care (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Aug 30 at 0607:
only 621, presumed Canaries; not even 846 Kiritimati TP (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

Nina Jankowicz (Wilson Center): "Imagine leading a media organization
and insinuating your reporters are spies. I have colleagues who are
being forced to return to dangerous environments because USAGM won't
renew their visas. They will be at risk because they've done critical,
truthful reporting while at VOA. These people have USG security
clearances and have been heavily vetted, usually multiple times. They
join USAGM because they're committed to bringing reliable information
to environments where it's hard to get. Pack's statements are
endangering USAGM employees around the globe."
