** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, June 10 at 1451, JBA carrier from LRA36,
another Wednesday-only broadcast over a mostly-water path from
Esperanza to Enid. Cleaning up brush after another windstorm, I don`t
get around to checking the Brazilian remotes this week (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13020, 11440, 10920, June 10 at 1453, the only CNR1 jammers
found in scan from 13.3 to 10.8 MHz, JBA music or worse (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, June 9 at 2054, S6-S7 open carrier of RHC: this is not
something wrong, but warming up for nominal tarde start at 2100 on
this and several others (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, June 10 at 0552, RHC English S9-S6 on 2 x 6100 much
stronger, the voice of Lena (?) Valverde --- one cannot imagine her
speaking extemporaneously like ``Ed Newman``, instead of stiltedly
reading a script once run by the censors. Maybe she`s not that
confident of her English fluency.

Searching the RHC website I get no hits on Valverde except for someone
else surnamed. The About-us page is no help either to acquaint us with
individual announcers, rather political reasons for RHC as an entity.

Since we often get such harmonix, this prompts me to compute possible
harmonix of other higher RHC frequencies which might show up by
sporadic E, especially now at season-peak. Here are all of them below
31.5 MHz, seconds, thirds, fourths; fifths and sixths for the lowest:

15730 = 31460
15370 = 30740
15230 = 30460
15140 = 30280
15120 = 30240
13740 = 27480
13700 = 27400
13650 = 27300
11950 = 23900
11880 = 23760
11800 = 23600
11760 = 23520
11700 = 23400
11670 = 23340
9790 = 29370, 19580
9640 = 28920, 19280
9580 = 28740, 19160
9570 = 28710, 19140
9535 = 28605, 19070
7380 = 29520, 22140, 14760
7350 = 29400, 22050, 14700
6145 = 30725, 24580, 18435, 12290
6100 = 30500, 24400, 18300, 12200*
6060 = 30300, 24240, 18180, 12120
6000 = 30000, 24000, 18000, 12000*
5990 = 29950, 23960, 17970, 11980*
5040 = 30240, 25200, 20160, 15120, 10080
5025 = 30150, 25125, 20100, 15075, 10050
4765 = 28590, 23825, 19060, 14295*, 9530*
* indicates those which have axually been monitored as I recall.

Of course, these are possible only when the fundamental be on the air.
Included are all currently active RHC and CRI relay frequencies,
Rebelde, Progreso, but not jammers, intermodulation or other spurs,
nor spy numbers which come from the same sites.

I`ve used a calculator to be sure all these be correct; more useful
would be to arrange them into a single frequency order, but that`s
enough for now. Perhaps someone else will do that? Of course, even
higher harmonix are quite possible in a strong sporadic E opening from
Cuba; an harmonic no more than 3X from 15730 would land on 47190
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13766 & 13634 approx., June 10 at 1337, RHC spurblobs out of
13700-AM, no readable mod. At 1354 I try for more, which are JBA circa
13569, 13831, with F# tone in AM which is also audible on S9+20 13700
but not on // unrelated 13740. However, at 1449 recheck 13700 still on
but no spurs audible. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

BTW, if you find that remark tiresome, don`t blame the messenger. If
RHC ever get its acts together, I shall happily stop saying it; DHYB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11650, my previous log of R. Tamazuj --- sounds
like ``Tamazuk`` --- mentioning their alleged English news segment Wed
& Sat at 0415-0425, served as a note-to-self to check it out at next
opportunity: I had MADAGASCAR well direct but Wed June 10 at 0412 for
convenience at the computer bring up UTwente instead, with a VG
signal, much better than // 7315 via France. Interview by OM with YL
on phone about Corona virus; the only English being when he says
``OK`` to start each reply. NO other English, keeps going in presumed
Juba Arabic (which does sound rather different than standard Arabic),
until 0422 music, 0427 elaborate sign-off; ending with mention of
sibling FPU station Radio Dabanga, which axually starts to sign-on,
before cut off the air at 0429.8*. Comes back on at *0431. There was
no need for a break as per HFCC exactly the same parameters apply to
both: 250 kW at 335 degrees, 15 slew, 159 antenna type. But where`s
the English, Ivo? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. 9800, June 9 at 2100* poor signal with a smidgen of music and
off. HFCC has it as Encompass via Woofferton in Arabic at 1800-2100
but we know it`s really World`s Last Chance Radio, having found 500 kW
from Maine insufficient, at least while stuck to 9330. Also registered
at 19-21 on 9800 is something NEW from Bulgaria in English; maybe a
standby siteswitch for same? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring; next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Thanks this week for financial support from Tom Goodfellow,
Palm Desert CA, who sent a generous contribution via PayPal to
woradio at yahoo.com
PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert.
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

Next WOR 2038 should be ready by early UT Friday June 12 for first
WRMI broadcast at 2200 on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, June 9 at 2105, WBCQ in `AAAWWW` playback from June 6
as he`s talking about making their own ice cream; yes, listed as an
Available Time Slot. Better reception than I expect this early in the
summer; AW recently said he had beefed up power on the classic
transmitters; now fair S6-S9, let`s hope also for WOR 24 hours later
on Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, June 10 at 0144, WRNO is S9+10/20 of dead air; except
for some JBA beeping, QRM or self-inflicted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, June 9 at 2050, dead air except for squeal! from
WWCR-1; finally about 2050.5 starts `Unshackled` at very odd hour.
Maybe it`s the default filler for a failure? No, it`s scheduled for
2030 Tuesdays. Anyhow, noting an S9-S7 signal boost by sporadic E.
Despite these tipoffs, VHF Es openings MUF into the FM band continue
to elude me (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 10 at 0547, S6-S8 seems like Bislama from R
Vanuatu; 7890 with JBA carrier, harmonix from 3945, but no signal on x
4 = 15780; 0555 music, 0559 announcements mixed with music, maybe one
English word caught, ``o`clock``. It seems they are running 3945 +
multiples earlier and earlier, or all the time? Ron Howard listened to
11835 from 0445 June 8, and they were already on at 0255 June 9 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Local scratch-noise blobs have drifted up/down but still
at about 360 kHz intervals. Any idea what device would behave like
that? June 9 at 2100 finds them around 9700-9750 peaking 9725-9730;
9335-9400, 9370; 8975-9050, 9010 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [non]. 9620, June 9 at 0602, RTA relay via FRANCE is
starting with tweeting on own audio, self-imposed beep QRM as the
defective ISS transmitter is now here; plus my own local bubbling from
some device, quite a combination vs Arabic song (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. CNR1 jammer survey, June 9, starting at 1351. Some
of these are JBA carriers, so presumed, the stronger ones with
metereadings, all in Chinese, no Firedragon heard; most against Sound
of Hope, some USAGM:

13920 S6-S9; 13835; 13530 JBAC; 13160 JBAC; 13150; 12880 S5-S7; 12870
S5-S7; (12350? = 13740 Cuba minus 1390 KCRC local mix); 12190.

By now it`s 1357 with time running out this hour; skipping past any
25m in-band: 11460 S9-S7; 11170; 11150; 11100; 10920.

At 1417: 10820; 10960; 11070; 11100 S3-S6, 11440 S9-S6; 11460 S6-S9;
12190 JBAC; 12210 S5-S8; 12500 S6-S9; 12800 JBAC; 12820 JBAC; 12880
S6-S4. At 1423: 13020 S9/+10!; 14850 JBAC; 14920 JBAC.

At 1428: 15110 S8/S9+10 vs VOA Philippines, but no sign of it, just
this CNR1 // 13020. Scanned up thru entire 16 & 17 MHz band but none
more until:

At 1430: 17690, JBA but // 13020.

I seldom check after 1500 but I do today tuning down from 17690 which
is now off: at 1505, none higher than: 11440, 11100, 11070 (and two
JBA local mixes: 10770 = 12160 WWCR minus 1390 KCRC; 10490 = 11880 CRI
Cuba minus 1390 KCRC).

So there you have a fraxion of the hyper-paranoid ChiCom attempt to
block any dissent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [and non]. 9805, June 9 at 0604, something is here under
heavy Cuban jamming, certainly not Radio Martí. It`s RFI in Hausa at
0600-0630! Yet another station which doesn`t have the sense to avoid
any frequency ever jammed by Cuba, at any time, any year. EiBi shows
one other daring to employ 9805, KBS World Radio four hours a day, one
of them axually overlapping RM at 10-11. See also ALGERIA [non] (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Since I no longer have a regular DXLD sexion
UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIALS, I can`t resist quoting this nice response,
especially since some other guy brickbats me and wants me banned from
some list: (gh)

``Glenn, I always enjoy your detailed reports, writing style, and
commentary! This time, I particularly liked your discussion of

“** U S A. 1270, June 2 at 2014 UT, in full daytime conditions, KRXO
Claremore (Tulsa) OK silly sports talk at 5 kW with heavy SAH of
exactly 1 Hz from another groundwaver.”

Lotta good DX tech & thinking in that, good science and detective
work, plus I so agree with your assessment of “stupid sportstalk”
programming. It’s why I cannot sit on any station for more than a few
minutes these days, except the rare ones that run music. Can’t stand
the mindless talk of any flavor. // Thanks again for your
informative/entertaining reports, always a good read! – 73s de Fred in
Waynesburg, PA (with a wonderful ICOM 7300 I seldom get to use)``
Schroyer, IRCA iog. Tnx, Fred! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 9 at 2228, VOT English to us is on, but JBM if
not dead air. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. No RTTY QRM,
anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, June 9 at 1424, K6FRC beacon in Patterson CA is
JBA vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring: confirmed Monday
June 8 at 1801 on IRRS 7290 via BULGARIA. Recorded off UTwente SDR and
spotchecked later, apparently intact for the next 29 minutes.

I start setting up recording at 1702 when Iran`s Russian service from
1650 is running --- and I am already hearing the ``RTTY``-- like
warble underneath, so that sound is NOT coming out of IRRS as I
previously thought, but what? Is it an artifact at UTwente; or
somesignal on 7290 at broader hours? I have not compared to what
happen via other SDRs. BTW, Iran`s Russian hour on 7290 is somehow
missing from Aoki/NDXC, but correctly in EiBi.

[24 hours later, June 9 at 1750 during the break, I am trying other
SDRs, such as Bucharest, and after a VG signal from Iran, there is
definitely high-speed RTTY or something on 7291! What`s it doing in
the broadcast band? Intruder! And there is now a weaker unID 7290
broadcast signal with songs, which unseems either VIRI or IRRS; only
other 7290 scheduled is CNR1 Beijing site until 1805, Via UTwente,
it`s JBA under IRRS open carrier before it modulate at 1759. Back to
Bucharest, the unID has a 5+1 China-style timesignal at ToH. Talk
resumes and it does seem to stop at 1805. IRRS is sufficient at
Bucharest but much stronger at UTwente; `Wavescan` after 1830 Tue.]

Now back to June 8: My recording starts at 1750 when the VIRI IS is
briefly heard, and off*, this week in plenty of time before IRRS. The
warble is still heard with neither station in the break. After a few
minutes of open carrier, circa 1759, IRRS feed cuts on during a song;
soon ``From south of the Alps in northern Italy, you are tuned in to I
double-R S shortwave, address P O Box 10980 in N-20110 MILL-ah-noh,
Italy`` and phone number; right into FSN Washington quick headlines
before WOR.

Also confirmed UT Tue June 9 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG at Utwente, weak
ute ACI from 7784 evitable; direct check at 0129, S9 with different
co-channel uteblaaps on and off. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

UNIDENTIFIED. 11000-USB, June 9 at 1359, 2-way in English, military?
``stand by``; ``loud & clear``; noticed while bandscanning for CNR1
jammers. UDXF iog has some 2019y logs of Algerian Air Force; I don`t
think so, now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11130-11155, June 9 at 1358, local scratch-noise peak
blob around here during CNR1 jammer bandscan; others in the 10s as
usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, June 8 at 0524 UT, RoboYL in French JBA just as
she`s going off; Nova Scotia area Canadian Coast Guard marine weather
frequency; at least detectable despite high storm noise level not
close to here but mainly from South Dakota into SW Ontario (commonly
miscalled NW Ontario from the POV of Toronto); and some scattered
Mexican spots. None of the four stations are supposed to be on air at
this time per http://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 13270-USB, June 8 at 1427, VOLMET from Gander is JBA,
simultaneous same robovoice somewhat stronger on 15034-USB Trenton
Military (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer surveys: June 8 at 1320 on 9230, 9200, 9180; at
1355 none heard in the 12.8-13.3 MHz area; at 1332 JBA on 16100, 1358
music, 1400 timesignal and off. 15 MHz inbanders were also audible.

At 1424: 12500 JBA, 12820, 13020, 13130 best S4-S6; at 1429, 13530
S5-S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13650, June 7 at 2350, S9+20/30, CRI ``Portuguese``
hour via CUBA music modulation cutting off and on continuously;
totally unlistenable, but who cares. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, June 8 at 0011, no signal from RHC English; 6145 is
S9+20/30 of dead air. Sometimes both are running from nominal *0000.
Something``s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, June 8 at 0529, RHC in wrong language Spanish, while
English succeeds on 6000, 6100, 6145, with 6060 still AWOL.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, June 8 at 1430, S9+20 of dead air while 13700 musix at
S9+10/20, no spurs. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** FRANCE. 7390, June 8 at 0539, RFI French with self-imposed beepery
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9105, June 8 at 1321, weak in Korean, this week`s VOH
frequency ex-9100 last week as confirmed by Ron Howard. Also with
beeping about 9102.9, jamming? Maybe not as same sound heard against
nothing on 8752.7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11650, June 8 at 0334, Arabish from Radio
Tamazuj ID in passing, music S9+10/20, still at 0403; also with lite
somewhat intermittent het on 11648.8, jamming? RT at 0329-0427 is 250
kW, 335 degrees via MADAGASCAR so favouring us beyond; unchecked //
7315 France to its SE. Have never caught the English news Wed & Sat
0415-0425 per Ivo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday June 8 at 0130 & 0230 on WRMI 7780, VG at UTwente where it`s
aimed. Also confirmed at 0130 on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon June 8 starting a minute early at 0259 on Area
51 webcast; 5130 WBCQ not checked until over at 0332, S9+10/20.

Also confirmed UT Mon June 8 at 0332 on WRMI 9955, JBA here vs storm

** VANUATU. 11835, June 8 at 0530, YL talk in unID language, weak, but
RV 3945 + harmonix must be on even earlier today than *0600; also JBA
carrier on 2 x 3945 = 7890. Ron Howard confirms hearing 11835 as early
at 0445, and 3945 until 1104* so did not use either 5040 or 2485
today: ``Will be interesting to see what their permanent schedule will
look like, if they ever decide on one. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Local scratch-noise blobs not noticed during the day
June 7, but later June 8 at 0536+, approx.: 9505-9532, 9860-9890,
7335-7385, 7695-7730.

Also June 8 at 1325 around 8765-8820, 9120-9175, and no doubt the
other usual ranges (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, June 7 at 0551, S9-S7 ME song, nice, no
jamming, but by 0557 there is a light fast SAH, perhaps the Turkish
jammer; 0600 orchestral music and Dengê Welat ID, 0601 into news(?).
Recheck at 0635, no signals. Aoki/NDXC shows a site switch at 0600
from Issoudun, FRANCE, to PRIDNESTROVYE, so that was likely the SAH
carrier I had from a much weaker signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, June 7 at 0002, pirate song at S3-S4; 0023
seems to say ``radio hub``, and guitar strumming. 0040 another
announcement; 0051 says wife just brought him another bottle of wine,
feeling good and will keep going; faded up to S8-S9, ``Zekey`s Attic
here``. Next check 0105 is off. More reports:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,68040.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-USB, June 7 at 0042, hard rock, S6-S7, 0048
``X-FM Shortwave``; 0055 DJ acknowledging reports, e-mail from Brandon
in Pennsylvania; someone in Columbus, Ohio; also posts on HF
Underground; X-FM relayed by Mix. Reports to XFMshortwave@gmail.com or
phone 408-800-6925 for E- or P-QSLs if there is sufficient detail to
verify; 0059 TC for ``one in front of one``, ID, ``east of the
Rockies, west of Normal``. Still going at 0120. More reports, many
with great reception:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,68039.0.html
AC 408 is Santa Clara county area, California, unlikely to be QTH with
the good signals back east (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 11620, June 7 at 0602, news in French all about Africa,
first especially Libya; altho fluent, the speakers seem not with the
pristine Parisian accent, perhaps African-influenced. Aoki/NDXC shows
this semihour is BBC via AUSTRIA, and gone at 0635 recheck. There is
also a LAH, from? Only otherthing sked at this hour is CNR5, Beijing
site; would not expect either to be off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 18131.778-USB, June 6 at 2049, W7YO is the OPSOB (only phone
station on band), Glenn running 100 watts from the 4-corners area,
leisurely contact with unheard AA3PM(?) discussing antennas,
equipment. Still there at 2124 on the other receiver when measured.
QRZ.com lookup: ``W7YO USA, GLENN M GURNEY, BLANDING, UT 84511``.

There is also some CW just above 21 MHz, but no phone audible on
``15`` meters, and nothing on 12 or 10. HF sporadic E opening.

I am paying close attention to MUFs as monitored and as on the 6m DX
MAPs. Once in a while it pokes above 88 MHz, but in the wrong places,
not enough for any FM DX to skip into here. We are around the nominal
peak of the summer Es season, but it`s been very disappointing so far;
indeed nothing since the surprise early opening in mid-April (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15809.977, June 6 at 2138, very weak and fading carrier,
some JB modulation? rock music at peaks, and Ted? Must be the seldom
activated WTWW-3. Still past 2144+. Similar signal to 15825 WWCR,
neither getting any sporadic-E boost over this path despite lots of HF
MUFs around the continent. It seems the last times I logged this were
August 18-19, 2018, offset at .938 and .930.

5085, WTWW-2 is on and arriving this early at 2140 much better with
woman`s voice not //, presumably some ham show this Saturday. The
other possible WTWW frequencies, 9930, 9475 and 5830 are all silent,
and probably 12105 if I could have remembered it.

By 0100 June 7, only 5085 heard with quotation from Exodus, ID and
rock music, distorted on S9+30/40 signal.

15810, June 7 at 1839, JJBBA carrier, even weaker than 15825 WWCR, but
suspect WTWW-3 on again; however by 1850 nothing to be heard via
several remotes in different direxions at greater distances.

Once again there is plenty of HF Es around the USA, but not over the
TN/OK path. High MUF spots into the 90s are scattered, either too far
or to close over here; nada on an FM bandscan at 1800-1814 UT
concentrating on 88-98 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 7 at 0627, ``island music``, must be the third
harmonic of RV, 3 x 3945 as has been erupting now for weeks and often
reported by Ron Howard. First time I`ve heard it since it`s now coming
on an hour earlier at *0600 before my too-late-already bedtime. RV
keeps changing frequency/times, so get it while we can.

Also a JBA carrier on 7890 = 2 x 3945. I measure it on 11835.000, but
Ron`s recent recording has a low het upon it; China being the
co-channel but they are normally spot-on. At 0630 there is a
sounder/drumming, and talk, not sure of language but intonation sounds
French; Ron reported on June 6 and says the same was on June 7 at this
time:

``0630-0644: "Half past five"; "Press Release," with very detailed
information about applying for an interest free loan from the Cyclone
Harold Vanuatu National Provincial Fund, given in French, Bislama and
English; followed in English with message from school Principal Fred
Ottman, about the Aore Adventist Academy being relocated and giving
students detailed instructions for the move. Good number of IDs
("Radio Vanuatu, Vois Blong Yumi"); some light China QRM and a slight
het.
My audio of French, at http://bit.ly/30eYzVl
My audio of English, at http://bit.ly/2XB5xCg .``

Here it`s S4-S7, so hard to believe this be an accidental harmonic.
Station is aware of these and was supposedly going to fix them, but we
hope they don`t! Tnx to our summer, 25m is hopping with other signals,
but NZ has already dropped to 50m (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ZAMBIA. 11680, Sun June 7 at 0615, AWR Wavescan is coming in quite
well via VOHA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, June 6 at 1341: 14900 is S7-S9.

At 1346-1353, at least JBA carriers on relevant frequencies, some
strong: 13530, 13160, 12880 S9+10, 11460 > 11440, 11170, 11150, 10960,
10920, 10820.

At 1434, 9300, Chinese at S4-S5, this frequency not listed by Aoki or
EiBi for jammers or anything anywhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13765, 13637, 13572, 13508 approx., but not 13830, June 6 at
1343, RHC spurs from 13700, extremely distorted but recognizable in
AM, with F# tone. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5800, 5850, 5950, 7570, 7730, 7780, 9395,
9455, 9955, Sat June 6 at 1439, all these WRMI frequencies are on,
wildly divergent strengths, the all-out live Sabbathday service of
Brother HyStairical extending hours of some transmitters, 5010 also
listed for TOMBS until 1600 Sats, not checked and probably inaudible.
15770 also on but stix with SMTV; and JBA 21525 Radio Africa (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring: NOT confirmed,
Saturday June 6 at 1130 on WRMI, 9955, tho still on their sked. Tnx to
Richard Langley, NB, who also checked it as I hoped to be asleep, says
it`s again Jack Van Impe (deceased), like last week.

15770, Sat June 6 at 1314, WRMI is JBA but traces sound like me.

After 1600 Sat June 6, WOR 2037 confirmed on WRN webcast. Next:

** U S A. 17775-, June 6 at 1456, KVOH is on, and propagating S9+10
with prélude/IS and ID, 1500 another ID and sign-on; 1501.3 starts
`Wavescan` #589 for release June 7; first feature is about West
Bengal, land of White Tigers; we already got the script and published
it in WOR iog, since it was mislabeled as for May 31, #588 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1520, June 6 at 0538 UT, the KYND Cypress TX barker can
again be heard mixing with KOKC; how brazen --- how futile. 25 kW
daytimer with no business and no authority at night.

1540v, June 6 at 0539 UT, LAH, of course from off-frequency-minus KGBC
Galveston; last night I checked here, there was no het; intermittent.

1560, June 6 at 0540 UT, bits of Vietnamese in the mix, i.e. KGOW
Bellaire TX also in the Houston market,
http://vietradio.com/ --- beware, audio autolaunches without
permission; but no longer dominant here on 1560. Perhaps have finally
reverted to 15 kW licensed night pattern, totally SE into the Gulf.

FCC AM Query shows a *nine*-tower direxional array peaking at 145
degrees,

i.e. aiming for the Vietnamese communities upon oil platforms,
Yucatán, Central America, across South America: Colombia/Ecuador,
Iquitos, Bolivia, Paraguay/Uruguay borders with Argentina/RGS; vs
plenty of other 1560s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. June 6 at 1435, local scratch-noise blobs cutting in and
out circa 9208-9239, 7730-7790 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
