** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, LRA36 publicized a big broadcast for Sat
Aug 29, alternating Spanish and German at 1500-2030, then English at
2030-2200. But: Not a trace from 1500 past 1540 on any Brazilian or
Argentine SDR I can access. Is anyone hearing it anyhow? There has
been a propagation disturbance as long predicted. Note admission of
low power 800 watts. WRTH 2020 said ``1 x 10 kW (operated at 1.5 kW).
F.pl: increase output to 10 kW`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR iog)

Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, replies at 1612: ``Hi, transmission
suspended due to bad weather. Best 73,s`` (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 6134.8, Aug 29 at 0554, weak signal sounds like Brasilian
talk, but cuts off air 0555* before I can measure it exactly; presumed
R. Aparecida. Nothing audible on 9630v by 0558 while RVM is audible,
q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 5939.5, Aug 29 at 0557, music and soon announcement in
Brazilian, sounds like official RVM canned ID, S4 vs S9 noise crashes,
and not too much 5935 WWCR now. Within a few Hz of 5939.500 producing
equal hets, SSB tuned to 5939 and 5940.

9664.808, Aug 29 at 0559, Brazilian talk at S4-S6 from
always-off-frequency RVM. Only ZY audible now on 31 or 49m (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey Aug 29 at 1352: none higher than 12880
JBA carrier; also 11460, 11170, 11150, 11120, 10960; 10160 trace of
Chinese; 9215 S3-S5 of Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13820, Aug 29 at 1315, noise jamming where there has been no
RM since March. Something`s always wrong at DCJC. Also jams its real
frequency 13605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Aug 29 at 1315, RHC on here but not 13700 and no
spurs, with report on COVID-19 statistics in Cuba by provincias,
municipios, barrage of figures I don`t try to copy but I think he said
the mortality rate was under 3%; from echoey venue.

Still no 13700 at 1352, but by 1454, 13700 is on and 13740 is off.
Nominal skeds for these two: 13700, 13-15 to San Francisco; 13740,
11-14 to Buenos Aires, but not noticeably weaker here. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Aug 29 at 0602, VON is AWOL again, and not on
9689.9v either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: almost confirmed
Saturday August 29 at 1310, the 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA traces of

** U S A. 1070, Aug 29 received this reply to my report of the WCSZ DX
test: ``Hi Glen[n], Thanks for your report - it confirms your
reception of WCSZ on August 22, 2020. This was non-DA, at 50 kW the
entire time. They were DA daytime until about ten years ago, when that
equipment was removed. Three towers at night, aimed at the ocean with
Greenville [SC] in it's main lobe. Indianapolis kills them in their
fringes at night. Al Hajny`` --- that`s it, no eQSL attached.

S.S. is an ~8K suburb on the NW side of Greenville. My Collins Gem
pocket dixionary, originally owned by G. B. Hancock for a 5th hour
French class, says souci means: care, worry, anxiety, solicitude,
marigold; but Google says the expression, without any of those =
carefree. The Arizonans skipped the French for their Carefree, as Paul
Harvey used to remind us, north of Phœnix, presumably a retirement
community (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Aug 29 at 0606:
nothing but 621, presumed CANARY ISLANDS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. On Friday, August 28, 2020, 01:52:33 AM GMT+1, Bill

``There will be a test of FTIOM & UBMP on 9670 kHz (Channel 292 from

before, Friday, 28th? Glenn``

Yes, it`s today Friday Aug 28. Listening via UTwente, signed on late
at 1603, VP signal. By 1623 only a JBA carrier or bits of music and
hash on frequency; something on 9665 but not enough to QRM. Nothing at
Portugal KiwiSDR, which should be better skip distance. 1719 still
nothing at Lisboa; wild jazz S7 audible at UTwente but far too much
noise/hash to enjoy. 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`` By 1730 tuneout, Bill is
plugging his Sept 7 specials on Channel 292 and WBCQ. Wolfgang
Bueschel replies:

``Such mini 10 kW non-directional antenna broadcast to either western
Europe, nighttime across ocean to Maine and Massachusetts, or UTC
nighttime to European Russia target IS INEFFECTIVE. It is necessary
to r e n t the real broadcaster 100 kilowatt or 300 kW powerful
units in ORS Moosbrunn Austria, MBR Nauen Germany or CJSC Yerevan
Gavar Armenia. 73 wb`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Aug 28 at 0623, VON is on for a change, S9+10/20,
and with good modulation for a change, talk in presumed Hausa about
COVID-19 -- number pronounced in English -- and demokrasi (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: confirmed first
WRMI broadcast, Friday August 28 at 2200 on 9955, good via TWR Bonaire
SDR and no jamming audible.

Also confirmed UT Sat Aug 29 at 0130 on WRMIs: 9955 better S4-S6 via
Boa Vista than Bonaire; 7780 good S9+10 via UTwente.

From Unique Radio, Australia website, https://www.uniqueradio.biz/ ---

** U S A. 6159.9v, Aug 28 at 2347, S8-S9 but noisy, WBCQ `Old Tyme
Radio` is opening an episode of `Amos `n` Andy` as re-produced by Ed
Bolton; a little late if to finish by hourtop? But it does, now
listening to Area 51/61 webcast, 2357 organ theme and outro. 0000 Aug
29 into `Crusader Rabbit` instead of `AAAWWW`, which has already
started WTO theme and interjexions on 7490 webcast. Allan soon plugs
OTR show but says he is now on 6160; random conversation with Angela,
including benefits of vertical antenna to reduce
horizontally-polarized noise. 0023 false-start to politix he always
says he doesn`t want to get into on show, is quadri-casting on 3265,
5130, 6160, 7490. Angela is wearing soft, sexy, pants he hasn`t seen
her in before.

0026 I check Rochester SDRs and indeed AAAWWW is heard on 6160 and the
others; but still NOT on the A51/61 webcast; at 0027 it exclaims, ``Dr
Becker`s Magic Mushrooms on the Lumpy Gravy Show``. Back on AAAWWW,
0032 confirms date as 28 August YOOL 2020; then A&A really get into
politix: hypocrisy, ``deep state`` conspiracy nonsense; they can`t
comprehend how anyone could vote for Biden instead of Trump, thus
ending freedom and everything in America. (Me, if I had to choose
lesser of evils, it would be Socialism instead of Trump`s Fascism; in
fact Democratic Socialism is not evil at all but successful in much of
N/W Europe; but the populace needs to be unselfish, a tough call for
Americans, and a Canadian.) Reads long anti-Democratic screed e-mailed
by more than one listener; Angela is also anti-vac, but Allan claims
to be pro-science. 0059 prayer and 0100 over to Hal Turner. Here`s
John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 and just a few seconds later
on 5130 and 6160. I don't check 3265 as it's such a pain to do so.
Allan and Angela in the studio. Opening positive talk about the Area
61 Old Time Radio program on 6160 and all the positive comments they
have received about it. Then a plug for shortwave listening in
general. Some antenna talk then into antennas on dumbphones. Angela
broke in and said they should have a picnic on top of the
superstations antenna and Allan quips that they are the only two
people at the station that could climb to the top and still function.
Then into TV antennas and finally back to radio antennas. Then talk of
antenna problems in FLA because of all the noise down there.

By 0023 they start to slowly drift into some political talk even
though Allan said he didn't like to do political talk during his show.
Allan distracted us by talking about how Angela was dressed and when
the discussion restarted we were back to talking of dumbphones again.
Angela brought up Pirate Joe and Allan stated that he was a communist,
left wing liberal and we're back into politics. Then Allan read an
older email from Ross on the Cape and it had to do with the election
and the general conditions in this country at this time. Angela got
animated after this and Allan started to read another email that had
to do with draining the swamp.

Reading of regular emails began at 0052 and Angela got a little wild.
Closing prayer at 0058 and program was off the air at 0100 again in
mid-sentence. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. JBA TA MW carrier search Aug 28 at 0622 UT: only 621,
stronger than 711, presumably Canary Islands and Morocco. (No 846 from
Kiritimati either) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey Aug 27 at 1410: none in the 16s; only
15110 JBA; 11440 JBA carrier; 11150 JBA Chinese; 11120 S2-S3; none in
the lower 9s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11950, Aug 27 at 2215, RHC on here during the hour earlier
than scheduled, with non-// alternative Spanish programming to 11760
mainstream. Something`s always wrong? at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 9490.028V, Aug 28 at 0242, R. República via RMI via
Issoudun, FRANCE, with song blending ME and Cuban elements? Soon 0244
into complaints of a political prisoner; S9+10/20 and no jamming
audible now. Frequency is varying slightly, difficultizing measuring.

After 0300, the UT Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon extension hour has resumed on 5800,
WRMI itself, confirmed at 0344 check Aug 28 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Aug 27 at 0558, no signal from VON which should be
running IS by now for 0600 broadcast, but not rechecked later here or
elsewhere (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. I haven`t kept rereporting this daily, but as of 1409 UT
Aug 27 daytime, no change since last report Aug 21, concerning 515-MCW
kHz, ND Beacon PN, Ponca City, still OFF; and 341-MCW kHz, NDB EI,
Enid, still on (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 27 at 2212, no signal here from VOT, surely off;
remote not checked since 9420 neighbor Greece accomplishes S8-S9.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Aug 27 at 1418, WRMI prolonged today beyond nominal
1400* with Freedom Synergy Radio talking about Taiwan in English. You
never know whether this webcast-only time will also get shortwaved
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Aug 27 at 1410 UT, KLEY Wellington KS, is still on
steadily S9 but only a trace of music modulation; maybe the 250-watt
daytime rating, but useless except for the 100.3 FM translator to
pretend to relay it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, UT Thu Aug 27 at 0000, WRMI with Radio Emma Toc
presenting its first global request show, at first good atop Cuban
jamming except during brief fades; 0015 `Song of Joy` with no credit
to Beethoven; 0020 something obscure by ABBA but now losing out to
jamming. Sorry, I don`t have a backward B; shouldn`t every font

with some hum, not even tried directly, already finishing `Turkey`s
Tourist Attraxions` and next into `This Day in History`, the latter
voiced by the `Letterbox` guy which is what I am expecting, ranging
from something Turkish in 1071y (when ``August 26`` if any, was
somewhen else) to the death of Charles Lindbergh in 1974y. 2217 his
canned COVID-19 PSA; 2218 music break but no `Letterbox`; 2224 the YL

Gaziantep!
