** AUSTRALIA. 28262 CW, May 14 at 2204, only direct signal on 10m,
beacon or phone in a quick scan, is JBA fading in and out here - long
dash of ~26 seconds and can`t copy it fully in maybe a semidozen
passes, but right after the dash there is VK###. WGB list shows only
this here or nearby, and with a 30-second dash: ``28262 VK2RSY -
Sydney NSW AUS QF56mh - #0 (10 Jan 2024) Note: ID + grid + 30"
carrier. Pwr 25w``. Meanwhile I was trying SDRs across the US, in
Maryland, Illinois, and two KFS in Californa, NW & SW antennas and
none were getting it except a trace at Athens, Georgia, about like I
had it. QRZ.com, nothing about a beacon: ``VK2RSY Australia flag
Australia, Amateur Radio New South Wales, PO BOX 6044, Dural Delivery
Centre, NS 2158, Australia`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 17855, May 14 at 0640, JBA signal, the OSOB except
for stronger 17600 Algeria: so CNR1 jammer and/or RFA Mandarin via
TINIAN this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17715.013, May 14 at 1914, REE S9+30 into UTwente. Now 17855
is also active, S9+5/15, but nothing on 15390 and 15520. Something`s
not normal at Noblejas. In Spanish, like `Tablero Deportivo`, silly
ballgame. Same situation at 2220 recheck during non-English on Tuesday
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 14 at 2200, VOT English, JBA carrier direct.
2230 into UTwente when measured, S9+35/45, badax talking about AI;
outro credit written by someone at Cambridge [mispronounced]
University, 2236 music; 2244 multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2246
`Turkey`s Geomarked [sic] Products` about tile, music; 2253 s/off by
non-badax YL as if only the 1230 on 17620. Something`s awry at
Ankara. At least they got the right season this time. 2254 IS until
2255.5* in time to avoid German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2242 monitoring: Confirmed UT
Tuesday May 14 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9+10/20 into Querétaro SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday May 14 at 1319, JBA into Peoria SDR the 1300 on
WRMI 9955. Earlier was inaudible direct, confirmed on webcast, only a
traceline on waterfall into Maryland, no signal into Bonaire. Bad prop
and/or underpowered?

I had missed checking some times on SW Gold Radio, Germany:
Sun 2130 Shortwave Radio, Germany 3975 6160
Mon 0830 Shortwave Radio, Germany 6160
Mon 1930 Shortwave Radio, Germany 3975 6160
but seems it has been off the air:

``Yesterday (13 May 2024) Shortwave Radio/Shortwave Gold was
observed signing on for the day at 0657 UT on 6160 kHz with English
announcements superimposed on their signature tune - Candy Dulfer's
sublime saxophone solo "Lily Was Here". Time pips and BST/CET
timechecks at 0800 UT, followed by --- silence. Unmodulated tx on for
5-10 minutes then the plug was pulled, for the rest of the morning at
least. No trace of it this morning as of 0930 UT. David Kernick, Interval
Signals Online``

Next WOR chance: Tuesday 2330:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW;
2330 UT Tuesday SW Radio, Germany 3975;
1930 UT Wednesday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160;
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW;
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S;

** CANADA. 15034 USB, May 14 at 0142 & 0218, surprised to hear Trenton
Military day frequency, and with reports received! And not on night
frequency 6754 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, May 13 at 0600, S9+25/40 of dead air from R. Rebelde.
Something`s wrong at RadioCuba. Last few nights had been nominal, not
logged (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Pulse jamming against nothing, May 13 at 0605, nor is any
target rationally to be expected at this late hour, on: 7355, 7365,
9490, 9565, 9955, 11860, 11930 strongest, 12060. None audible beneath
very strong Martíes really in use, 6030, 7335, 7435 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, May 14 at 0137 and 0218, no signal from R. Progreso.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** LIBERIA. 6050, May 13 at 0603, music S6/S7 direct, presumed ELWA.
Usually nothing more than a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, May 14 at 0145, dialog, OL deep southern
accent complaining with salty language, music in background, S9+30.
0217 recheck, rock at S9, OPOB. These say it`s WTF Radio Worldwide:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,129515.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, May 12 at 2209, SNR surprisingly strong, S9+10/20
direct, while little else beyond carriers from overseas on this and
lower bands. But it`s Sunday, so Spanish, not English (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday May 13 at 2200, NO signal direct from token
English on SNR to North America. Propagation OK, since the S American
frequency 17715 offbeam is quite audible. Nothing heard on the other
two, 15520 & 15390. At 2216 into UTwente, ONLY 17715.013, S9/+5 and
zero on the other three which are OFF. Somethings` nonfunxional at
Noblejas. Interview topic on an exhibition thru Aug 25, about city
design, ``La ciudad visible, la ciudad en juego``. 2227 summary of
Eurovision Song Contest, which ones were disqualified, Switzerland won
and Spain has not for 55 years (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY, 11785.009, Sunday May 12 at 2210, VOT English a JBA carrier
direct, but 2220 into UTwente when measured, S9+30/40, `Letterbox`
already started, host talking about riding a bike, then acknowledging
mail, almost all QSL requests from: India, México, Eugene [sic] in
Moscow who is a fan of host, Pakistan, same Indian again, A. Klepov in
Moscow, Italy. 2234 ``goodbye, my lovely dear listeners, have a nice
weekend`` and as always concluding with an unID song until 2241 when
`L`box` outro=intro finally plays, and more music. 2258 recheck is
already off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 13 at 2200, JBA carrier direct from VOT
English to us. At 2218 into UTwente when measured, S9+45 music; 2219
multi-lingual ID filler reel, music; 2230 badax about languages,
nautical terms from Greek, outro as `That`s Why` until 2231.6, music.
2235 ``with you every hour`` promo, music; 2244 TRT World promo,
music; 2253 headlines, s/off for satellite & internet only, no SW;
2254 IS; 2256 pause and restart IS with German IDs; cutoff 2258.3*
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 356 MCW kHz, May 13 at 0640 UT, ODX, 25 watt ND beacon at
Ord, Nebraska. Ord is in E Central NE, between Elyria and North Loup
on Hwy 11, distance 586 km = 364 stmi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 404 MCW kHz, May 13 at 0643 UT, JBA carrier, too weak to
copy any ID. Probably 25-watt HU in Hutchinson KS, `Saltt`, much
closer than MN and CA ones RNA-listed, and much weaker than the
ordinary Kansan on 407 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2242 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday May 12 at 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S8 but noisy
and fadey into UTwente. Also on WRN Europe webcast and WRMI webcast
only.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 13 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 but noisy
into Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 13 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.939,
S9/+10 and fluttery into NH SDR. Next:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to SW [irregular];
1300 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?];
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW;

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, May 14 at 0136, WRMI very undermodulated, rock music,
rather like 5050 Legends but not //. 9455 supposed to be RAE in
Spanish. At 0220, 9455 now good mod, S9+20/30, ``Baby Love``. Supposed
to be System K this hour, but not on the System K sked itself.
Something`s odd at Okee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130.2v, May 14 at 0138 & 0219, no signal from WBCQ
All-*rump-All-The-Time; 6160- and 7490- and 9330 are nominal (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7596.5v, May 13 at 0611, variable tones rather musical,
but repetitive, best in USB. Can`t pinpoint a specific carrier
frequency, more than one? What is this? Audible roughly between 7593
and 7600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9680 USB, May 13 at 0628, 2-way INTRUDERS in colloquial
Spanish, laughter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
We continue with near-blackout SW conditions: what can we expect, with
an A-index of 272, blackouts reaching R3 level, per WWV. Generally on
May 12, only the closest USignals are good, WWCR, Grimesland, on lower
daytime bands, otherwise mostly JBA carriers at best (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA. Re 17600 & 15160: ``The English segment (at least, the one
that starts anywhere between 1800 and 1845) is called "Zoom in
Africa". e.g.:
https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=670721051846340
Alan Roe, Teddington, UK`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. Re my 1510 log: ``R. Monumental 1510, Neil Kazaross May 11
#41226 Oops now I read that XEQI is inactive so I don't know what my
early SS was but it wasn't needed Ecuador.`` - IRCA iog. Read about,
where? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4095, May 12 at 0624, sweeps upward JBA, log for the record,
DW, the Desert Whooper, despite noisy conditions now, last logged Dec
13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2242 monitoring: Re UT Sat 0130 on
WRMI 5850: Jeff White confirms WOR has been replaced by something else
- yet still on the System F sked as of May 12.

NOT confirmed UT Sunday May 12 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, since it is OFF
the air, no signal into Maryland SDR nor at 0013 into Bonaire. But
9395 is VG, 9455 JBA. By 0214 we have a JBA carrier direct on 9955.

Confirmed UT Sunday May 12 at 0306 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+10/20
into nearby SDR with some storm crashes, the 0315v about 7 minutes
into so started early about 0259. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323-Italy;
2130 UT Sunday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160;

** U S A. Major geomag storm affecting WWCR: 4840, May 11 at 0702,
S9+20 but with flutter. Likewise 5890, 5935, 5980 leapfrog mixture
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: "1330, May 11 at 0242, political ad in gringo-Spanish
for elexion later in May, presumably TX primary runoff May 28, but not
caught name; and
into C&W music. Of the 5 TX, two are C&W: KSWA Graham, 500/51 watts;
and KCKM Monahans, 12/1 kW. Graham is S of Wichita Falls, WNW of Fort
Worth. Monahans in SW TX near NM SE corner."

``Hi Glenn. KSWA (and co-owned KROO-1430) reportedly had their
licenses canceled sometime around August 2023. 73 Tim Hall`` - tnx, so
by elimination that leaves only KCKM, not an unusual catch here anyway
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 1570, May 12 at 0628, Bott Network promos, i.e.
surely KBCV, Hollister (Springfield) MO, U4 5/3 kW - tho NRC AM Log
shows one other Bott on 1570, KLEX, Lexington (Richmond) MO, U1 250/40
watts. No echo here but could be in central MO between them. Network
station list puts KBCV in Branson; plus lots more mostly FM:
https://bottradionetwork.com/stations/
HQ are in Overland Park (Kansas City) KS. KBCV is my closest 1570 at
night, since KTUZ Catoosa OK is daytimer; and KTAT Frederick OK is
silent, HPRN bankruptcy, but 250/6 watts and think I never heard it. I
still think 1570 should belong to XERF, source of Spanish often heard
but hardly dominant for 100/100 kW. Mexico even has CPs for three
other lowpowers on 1570 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 5940.1, May 11 at 0708, S4/S5 music with flutter, presumed
RVM, during auroral conditions and WWCR 5935 weakened. Could not get
enough signal on normally best 9665v to compare (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. During auroral conditions, bandscanning on
caradio for anything unusual such as Spanish; reference IRCA 2023-24
Mexican Log:

590, May 11 at 0217, ``Lo Mejor`` slogan a few times, and Mexicads.
That`s XEFD in Rio Bravo, Tams, but listed as La Mejor. RB is right on
the border, between Matamoros and Reynosa. Dominating rather than
Omaha.

670, May 11 at 0219, sports in Spanish; NO XEs on 670, or 680, surely
CUBA; trace of WSCR under.

720, May 11 at 0219, no WGN to dominate, maybe weak Spanish. Nicaragua
heard in past, not just Mexico.

750, May 11 at 0220, NO signal from WSB! Blacked out, or off? Easterly
not northerly.

760, May 11 at 0221, political ads including Partido Del Trabajo, ad
for eStar TV. 0223 TC as 20:23, i.e. CST not MDT. And program `Crónica
7-60` at 8-9 pm M/W/F. Six stations active, led by 70/10 kW XEABC in
Edo. Mex., calling itself XERAG as in Radio Alegría. No WJR. XEABC
website https://radiocanon.com.mx/programas/ shows 20 programs, but
incomplete, this hour not accounted for and no hits on cronica search.
But got it! on their FB:

https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=487079406981607&set=a.200044909018393
``Crónica 760 con Miguel Reyes Razo, Al Aire Lunes, Miércoles y
Viernes 20:00 hrs``
Branding on web is Radio Cañón, never heard, and not Alegría..

780, May 11 at 0224, WBBM is JBA

830, May 11 at 0225, no signal from WCCO

840, May 11 at 0226, Meximx rather than WHAS. Three XEs listed, but
more likely KVJY Pharr TX in the RGV, SS:REL format

850, May 11 at 0226, no KOA

860, May 11 at 0227, romantic music in Spanish: probably XENL 5/1.5 kW
Monterrey, only one with a partially ROM format.

880, May 11 at 0227, something about basura - waste. Only XE- is -CHEP
in Chihuahua2. More likely just KJOZ Conroe TX

890, May 11 at 0227, no WLS

940, May 11 at 0405, ``XEQ-AM 940, 10 mil watts, La Q``, CST check.
Had been 50/50 kW but proclaiming 10 as if bragworthy. CDMX.

1030, May 11 at 0229, Mexican elexion ads, so not Corpus Christi; of 5
XEs, most likely XEQR, 44/1.2 kW, CDMX

1040, May 11 at 0229, no signal or trace from WHO; likewise next 3
minutes from: 1080 KRLD, 1110 KFAB, 1120 KMOX, 1160 KSL. By next check
0355, many of the US clears are beginning to show up again.

1060, May 11 at 0230, immediately R. Educación ID and list of
affiliates. Call now is XECPAE tho unheard, 100/20 kW, México CDMX;
not always // 6185, unchecked now.

1140, May 11 at 0231, Spanish music, with het. XEMR Monterrey
assumed.

1190, May 11 at 0232, ``Contacto 11-90``, Nuevo León, i.e. XECT
Monterrey, supposedly 100 watts at night! 10 kW day.

1200, May 11 at 0651, no WOAI. Was sometimes audible, sometimes not.
Would expect it to be enhanced rather than blocked by aurora.

1280, May 11 at 0233, ``La Grande``, also with medium het, probably
another station off-frequency. 0241, ``A-W, 101.3`` from Nuevo León.
XEAW, 10/1 kW, Monterrey. Recheck 0355 now English station dominant.

1290, May 11 at 0234, religious talk in Spanish. Neither of two XEs
with that format, rather very likely per NRC AM Log: KRGE, 5/5 kW,
Radio Vida, Weslaco TX in the RGV.

1330, May 11 at 0242, political ad in gringo-Spanish for elexion later
in May, presumably TX primary runoff May 28, but not caught name; and
into C&W music. Of the 5 TX, two are C&W: KSWA Graham, 500/51 watts;
and KCKM Monahans, 12/1 kW. Graham is S of Wichita Falls, WNW of Fort
Worth. Monahans in SW TX near NM SE corner.

1340, May 11 at 0243, KGHM Midwest/OKC dominates instead of buried by
graveyard QRM. Also many highband regional channels have only weak
signals, so many of them blacked out.

1460, May 11 at 0238, Spanish music. KZUE El Reno OK should be off,
daytimer. Several SS elsewhere in US, no good fits, as in TX, KBZO
Lubbock is sports. KTKC Springhill LA is SS:REL. Only XEs are in Chih,
Son.

1500, May 11 at 0238, no KSTP but Spanish. Likely XEDF CDMX 50/50? kW

1510, May 11 at 0239, Spanish, ``1,510 AM``: XEQI, 10 kW ``daytimer``,
Monterrey NL. Shux, not Ecuador.

1670, May 11 at 0240, Spanish music, low het caused by this off+plus:
XEFCR, Reynosa, Tams. 10/1? kW

We never could see aurora here in Enid OK, despite several tries,
somewhat hazy. SWPC Oval 10% probability reached into Kansas, later
retreated into Nebraska.

https://services.swpc.noaa.gov/images/animations/ovation/north/latest.jpg
For 0000 UT May 12, only to north half of Canada (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 11 at 2205, NO signal direct from VOT during
prolonged geomag storm. 2219 however checked at UTwente when measured,
music at S8/S9+10, weaker than usual but plenty. 2226 `Turkey`s
Geomarked [sic] Products`, repeat about honey for only about 2
minutes, then nothing but music fill until 2253 s/off, claiming this
has been the 1330-1430 on 13635! That applied to B23 only. Something`s
always awry at Ankara. 2254 IS about thrice until chop at 2254.5*
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 293 MCW kHz, May 11 at 1543 UT, my furthest regular daytime
ND beacon is still audible, FBY, Fairbury, Nebraska, groundwave
unaffected by geomag storm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2242 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT
Saturday May 11 at 0130 on WRMI 5850: instead music, fill? tho we are
still on the System F sked at this time. Maybe one brief announcement
circa 0150 I could not catch in time.

Confirmed UT Saturday May 11 at 0400 on WTWW 5085, strong signal but
unusually fluttery due to aurora.

Not confirmed Saturday May 11 at 1455 the 1430 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, 6160, NO signal into UTwente: off the air, or blackout? No
3975 either.

Confirmed Saturday May 11 at 1600 on WRN webcast for North America.

Not confirmed Saturday May 11 at 1737 the 1730 on SW Gold Radio, no
signals on 6160 or 3975 into UTwente. Definitely off since the other
lowpower Germans are well audible on 3955, 3985, 3995.

Confirmed Saturday May 11 at 1927 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, Steady S9+15
groundwave into nearby SDR, about 20 minutes into so started way early
circa 1907!

America. Next:

** U S A. Major geomag storm affecting WWCR: 4840, May 11 at 0702,
S9+20 but with flutter. Likewise 5890, 5935, 5980 leapfrog mixture
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. SW blackout May 11 at 1535-1540: No SWBC signals
on 9-22 MHz bands! Except JBA traces of WWCR on 15825, 13845, 12160,
not 9980.

Next survey May 11 circa 2200, 11 thru 17 MHz bands are mostly dead of
signals except for weakies: 15770 WRMI, 13845 WWCR, 11780 Brasil, and
strong 11930 GB Martí; 9 MHz has recovered better but nothing beyond
USA; VG 9980 WWCR, 9475 WTWW, 9350 WWCR. Fair on 9565 GB, 9265 WINB;
poor on 9455 & 9395 WRMI; 9330 WBCQ JJBBA carrier. WWV reported at
2100 May 11, also via Richard Lemke:

``Solar-terrestrial indices for 11 May follow.
Solar flux 214 and estimated planetary A-index 291.
The estimated planetary K-index at 2100 UTC on 11 May was 7.33.

Space weather for the past 24 hours has been extreme.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G5 level occurred.
Solar radiation storms reaching the S2 level occurred.
Radio blackouts reaching the R3 level occurred.

Space weather for the next 24 hours is predicted to be extreme.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G5 level are expected.
Solar radiation storms reaching the S2 level are expected.
Radio blackouts reaching the R3 level are expected.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sat May 11 at 1700, as expected, WWCR-2 too poor to
listen to `Talking Machine Show`, but so is the stream, weak and
distorted, surely coincidental, not due to geomag storm (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA. 17600, Fri May 10 at 1800, Ifrikya FM is S9+5/10 into
UTwente, checking for any English but no, French. Recheck 1839 now
English in progress, YL with heavy accent about adversity in Africa,
students making a difference in agriculture. 1842 closing episode
credits, outro sounds like ``Baotin? Africa``. There was also music
thruout the show and from 1844 music only. Severe geomag storm makes
this direct at 2013 only S6/S9 with heavy flutter in strength and
Doppler in frequency. By 2034, 17600 also hit by severe flutter into
UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 87.9, May 10 circa 1845 UT, Mexmx in $ tereo, much like
the open carrier before. No announcements. No doubt a part 15 RF
feeder, may not be relaying a terrestrial station. This time I drive
around the block, and then walkabout with DX-398 eyeing signal meter
and conclude it`s coming from about one block away where a house is
undergoing some construxion or fixing; and can also barely hear it
earily. Strangely enough, most of the construxion workers around Enid
speak Spanish (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PANAMA. 28282 CW, May 10 at 2015, about the only 10m signal is
fading out and in, a rather long loop, including: ``VVV HP1DCP/B ...
PANAMA ... COM 73S`` QRZ.com: ``HP1DCP Panama flag Panama, RENE IVAN
FONSECA, P.O.BOX 0819-09911, REP. OF PANAMA,
Panama`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri May 10 at 2200, token English from SNR is a total
loss due to auroral conditions, JBA carrier direct, likewise 15520,
nothing on 17715 or 15390. At 2226 into Maryland SDR, 15520 has a JBA
trace, the others inaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, May 10 at 2200, no signal direct from VOT English,
nor at 2226 into UTwente or Maryland SDR. Probably really off, but
with today`s geomag storm it may be totally unpropagable (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2242 monitoring: confirmed Friday
May 10 at 2040 the 2030 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1322.995, VG S9+5
into UTwente, lite ACI from Spain 1314. 2059 IRRS s/off, and 2100
immediately into Feature Story News. As always, it will not really
turn off for several more minutes.

Also confirmed Friday May 10 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, VP direct tho
metering S9/+10; at 2226 into Maryland SDR, good S7/S9 atop lite pulse
jamming.

Also confirmed Friday May 10 at 2230 on SW Gold Radio, Germany,
3975.003, unusually only JBA into UTwente with severe propagation
disturbance. Next:

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` WBCQs check May 10 at 2340, into NH SDR: 3265
off. 5130.240 just a trace occasionally locking. 6159.930 TOMBS at S7.
7489.929, FKB at S7/S9. 9330.00v, WLCR Portuguese oonly S4/S6. After
0000 UT Sat May 11, AAAWWW on 7490 only and soon obviously another
rerun, never mind. Meanwhile 5130+ has improved a little so I can tell
it`s ATATT. 0050 recheck direct, NO signals at all audible on any
except VP 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, May 10 at 2355, WTWW is still here with T2P, QSY to
5085 at 2358 takes about 15 seconds, both very strong direct; and 5085
with those JBA spur carriers still about 5072.1, 5097.9 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, May 10 at 2023, WWCR air seems dead and heavily
disturbed with extreme horizontal and vertical flutter in severe
auroral conditions. But 2 MHz lower on 13845 it`s more or less
normally strong. 15770 WRMI with its southern advantage is also
unaffected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
