Hauser
** EGYPT. 9440, Aug 21 at 2220, nothing but weak whine audible direct
from R. Cairo; much stronger JBM carrier on 9900, i.e. the English and
S. American services, respectively. Something`s always egregious in
Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY. 18155 USB, Aug 21 at 2208, IK4GRO calling CQ/DX 17, JBA
several times without reply; and not much else on band. QRZ.com:

IK4GRO Italy flag Italy
LAURO ZANOLI
VIA DEGLI ESPOSTI 19
41018 S.CESARIO S.P. MO
Italy

https://www.qrz.com/db/IK4GRO
shows Ferraris, family, equipment, cat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, Aug 22 at 1527, V of Martyrs Korea, secret
site is S3/S7, YL in non-English presumed really Dhivehi; chopped off
after 1529 just in time for OM S/off in English and 1530*. If Vatican
still follow, inaudible here in degraded conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, Aug 22 at 0555 first check, no signal yet from
VON, but by 0603 Hausa is underway, S9+20/30 with sufficient
modulation. Wolfgang Bueschel says it did come on at 0558 with IS, I
missed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6926 USB, Aug 22 at 0122, undermod pirate with song,
S5/S8 vs HSNL, long pause past 0124, off? Meanwhile, switching back
and forth to 6920 station, so bound to miss something. 0155 on with
``Shut the #uck up`` song. Mostly unID, but one report as ID: ``WWWW
The Drunk Fox?``
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,100959.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920 AM, Aug 22 at 0124, rock music, S9/+20 much
stronger than 6926 USB simulstation. Switching back and forth to that,
so bound to miss something. 0126, 6920 off. 0129 some spoken comments
with music, maybe DJ, not IDs; until: 0136 YL bot voice seems to be
reading a current HFU reception report to Clever Name Radio,
mentioning 6917, 6920. Apparently this be CNR per many reports:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,100958.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5950, UT Mon Aug 22 at 0200, `Encore` classical
music via WRMI: same episode as 25 hours earlier on 5850 & 7730. Now
it`s clear that this is the correct Aug 20 episode; the mistake was
the playlist header as Aug 6 instead of 20, now fixed.

Meanwhile, WBCQ R. Angela, Concert Hall has started part II of
`Parsifal` on 5129.975, S8/9+5 into Maryland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 21 at 2218, no signal direct from VOT, just RTTY.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. Another time typo at the end of this item, wrote 2355
instead of 2255, fixed below. While it`s ultimately my fault, there
would be less chance of this if there were not twice-annual one-hour
real time shifts due to stupid DST, down with!

9830.018, Aug 19, at 2201, VOT English is on today, S9+45/50 into
UTwente but with squeal! I am not going to put up with that. Autonotch
does not work on it, and removed only by narrowing bandwidth too far,
below 2.37 kHz. It`s equally bad on LSB and USB so part of the DSB
modulation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Off by 2255 so no
extra German and Portuguese tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, Aug 21 at 0503, UR1 via WRMI, reconfirmed in
English for `Ukraine: Security Issue`. Since there is always something
else I want to hear/see at local midnight, I`m finding it more
convenient to catch up later ondemand, and slowing possiblized.

For August 20, day 178 of Comrade Vlady`s war,
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_20_08_22.mp3
including:
Russia has lost almost 45K troops KIA, more than 6000 tanx et al.
Explosions at R bases in occupied Crimea. Bombarding U cities and
villages mostly in the south and east. High probability of strikes
from Belarus`, Caspian and Black Seas. Mariupol a mess. R chooses to
destroy all living beings in U. 25K pills of potassium iodide
delivered to city threatened with nuclear exposure from Zap. plant.

For August 21,
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_21_08_22.mp3
including: Massive missile strikes on Mykolaiv region. Five missiles
launched at Odesa, hit granary but two shot down. Three ships in Black
Sea armed with cruise missiles, one of them a sub. More local
resistance in Zap. area, 60% controlled by Russia. Lyudmila says all
windows broken, wishes occupiers would all die. Zap. plant may be
disconnected from power grid by Russians (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2152 monitoring: UT Friday August 19 at 0130
on WRMI, somehow I wrote 5810 instead of still correct 5850!

Confirmed Sunday August 21 from 2000.5 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323
kHz, Villa Estense, S9+5/15 atop SAH and QRM from 2? understations,

offbeam Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 22 from 0301.5 on WBCQ Area 51: JL
``gotta go`` at 0300, then considerable pause, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR

** U S A. 9330v, Aug 22 at 1537, NO signal from WBCQ`s World`s Last
Chance Radio; what`s wrong now? Almost as if WLCR fell off the edge of
the flat earth (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15745-15755, Monday August 22 at 1532, hybrid DRM at S8-S9,
from WINB, yet SSOB, stronger than 15770 WRMI and JBA 15825 WWCR.

Benn Kobb of www.experimentalradio.news posted about this to WOR iog
August 21:

``WINB Unknown Signal --- I was interested to hear the reference to
WINB in the latest World of Radio. The mysterious data emissions of
WINB were the subject of considerable discussion at this year's NASB
conference here in Washington.

I don't know if anyone has publicly disclosed the content of this
nonbroadcast data. But the apparent connection between WINB and
Parable Broadcasting is notable. Parable is one of the companies
waiting for an FCC construction permit to build an International
Broadcast station.

The principals of Parable hold executive positions at Ursa Navigation
Inc. (UrsaNav), a LORAN company in Massachusetts; and at Tagence, an
IT firm in Virginia. While its shortwave station will be in Illinois,
Parable is based in Virginia. UrsaNav was the co-applicant with
Parable for a local permit to build a purported international
"Christian" radio station in Kane County, IL.

UrsaNav is licensed for microwave station WRAL663 at WINB's site in
Red Lion, PA.

Independent consulting engineer Alex Pilosov raised questions about
WINB and Parable in an FCC filing. Excerpts:

"In 2018, WINB applied and received authority to broadcast DRM
content, specifying 10 kHz emission bandwidth and emission code of
10K00G9W (single 10 kHz data channel).

"WINB did not disclose any transmission of private data in its
application for 'DRM datacasting.' In fact, WINB is transmitting
standard DRM signals in the upper 5 kHz portion of its assigned
spectrum, and non-DRM digital data in the lower 5 kHz.

Such transmissions are not permissible per [FCC Rule] §73.758, nor are
they part of the DRM specification. Furthermore, WINB itself confirmed
that the lower 5 kHz is, in fact, 'a data stream.'

"It can be reasonably inferred to be experimentation of shortwave data
transmission engineered by UrsaNav, in order to be used by Parable,"
Pilosov wrote.

None of the UrsaNav/Parable principals have backgrounds in religious
broadcasting - or any broadcasting, as far as I could determine. I
believe Parable has no real evangelistic mission but will function as
a private data link to overseas financial centers.``

The mention of this on WOR was a new multi-frequency schedule for WINB
DRM, via Ivo Ivanov:

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2022/08/new-schedule-of-winb-red-lion-in-hybrid.html

``New updated schedule of WINB Red Lion in Hybrid DRM mode from August
16; all 015 kW / 062 deg:

0700-0930 on 9265 INB to WeEu English Mon-Fri, ex 0700-1000

** CANADA. 3330, Aug 21 at 0636, S9 of open carrier/dead air from CHU!
While 7850 is OK, nominal. Checked at 1525, System Status
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
shows nothing amiss since May 30! So much for that (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GREECE [non]. 9420, Aug 21 at 1420, algo JBA during VOG`s last
timespan; what else? CHINA, of course, per EiBi and Aoki it`s both CNR
13 at 1058-1805 from Lingshi 725 site; and CNR 6 at 0900-1605 from
Beijing 491 site; among other times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.94, Aug 21 at 0647, VON obviously on again tonight,
S9/+10 but no modulation, open carrier dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 4095+, Aug 21 at 0639, DW ID on CW after upward sweeps, then
some more CW I can`t copy. JBA in high storm noise level, first time
logged since March 2, the ``Desert Whooper`` beacon. I had also just
checked 2097.3 for single-letter beacon A, from anywhere but
Quartzsite AZ, but not making it yet if still on (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 9475, Aug 21 at 1420 & 1526, no signal from WTWW-1 even tho
it`s Sunday morning prime time for Passé Pastor Pete Peters on
Scriptures for America; is #1 transmitter totally down? Or despite its
number, of lowest priority now below rock music and Ted`s ham stuff?
Even tho SFW in Colorado are absentee owners (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** ALGERIA. 17600, Aug 20 at 2122, S0/S1 direct with flutter, JBA M&W
talk, unsure language, and the OSOB - Spain still gone from 17855.
This still there past 2200. Only 17600 anywhen in EiBi is R.
Algérienne, Béchar, only at 18-20 UT, but they typically do not adhere
to any schedule. Aoki has nothing on 17600, but HFCC shows not only
18-20, but Béchar also at 08-13, all 300 kW at 131 degrees. Recheck
via UTwente at 2300, still a JBA signal. At 2320 it`s still locked
onto 17599.994+ but inaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, re my LRA36 report on Aug 20 with some
music heard via remote camping, Gary Pence, KM5X, Dallas, replies: ``I
felt like the music from about 1443z to 1450z could have been a
copycat as a carrier was detected in the waterfall, so I was trying
different modes to try to confirm`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13605, Aug 20 at 2125, JBA strings of weak beeps/tones at
different pitches audible with BFO from slightly different offsets, as
sometimes heard after-hours from Cuban jammers, as if they are playing
around communicating with each other (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Aug 21 at 0413, RHC is off. 6060 is on in Spanish; 6165
much weaker than 6000 in English. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Aug 20 at 2209, no signal direct nor later via
UTwente, from R. Cairo in English. No loss, since if on, would be
hugely distorted, unusable like it has been for many months (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 5829.929, Aug 21 at 0051, into Maryland SDR, JBA signal
not in English and certainly not WTWW, q.v. USA; rather as sked Iran
International TV, the UK-based clandestine, listed in Aoki at
1330-0530 via Tashkent, UZBEKISTAN, which has a well-known track
record of offfrequenciness; recheck at 0129, however, same kind of
signal shows within 1 Hz of nominal: if same service, has site
switched? Or maybe a blocker, ever jammed? EiBi has it only at
1600-0400 via Tashkent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. Re Encore: another encore. I wrote: ``Brice, I was
concerned that for the 01 UT Sunday Aug 21 broadcast on WRMI, your
website playlists are only dated 6 and 13 August - until it was clear
the program being played now is the 6 August one... 73, Glenn`` This
was on 5850 and 7730, about equal into Maryland SDR, somewhat less
noisy on the upper. Wonder which ep will play 25 hours later at 02 UT
Monday on 5950? Says he will fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 20 at 2213, VOT is on, but only S4/S6 direct vs
RTTY on plus side, undermodulated. 2229 into UTwente, somewhat
undermod but sufficient at S9+30/40 and no RTTY, +002+ Hz high,
opening `Feeling Supreme`, this time natural remedies for hoarseness
until 2235. 2250 sign-off schedule, as sound level seems to fade
independently of signal level, strange. 2251 IS to 2255*, off just in
time to avoid switch to extraneous German IDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2152 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday August 21 at 0030 on WRMI 7780: S7/S9 into Knoxville SDR with
HSNL = high storm noise level; better into Maryland over SNL at
S9/+10.

Also confirmed UT Sunday August 21 at 0329 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
S9+20/30 direct about 3 minutes into so started about 0326. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

** U S A. 9330.122, Aug 20 at 2210, WBCQ/WLCR in English, pretty far
off-frequency, S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Aug 21 at 0010, WTWW-2 is OFF, and so are all other
possible frequencies. Storms are not over Lebanon but east of there in
TN. Looking around the website we find streams still running. Long
outdated ``schedule`` says `Theater Organ From the Ozarx` is ``about
7:30 pm Central`` on Saturdays = 0030 UT Sundays. The time was never
reliable, but I have not run across it at all for many weeks. Is it
canceled? I inspect Bob Heil`s business website about mikes and other
audio equipment, heilsound.com and find no mention at all of any
theater organ broadcast under the old or newer `Under the Arch` name.

Back on the WTWW website, claims SFAW =PPPP on 5830 is 8 pm-midnight,
but 5830 is still off the air at 0136 UT. Instead there is something
very weak in non-English: see IRAN [non].

WTWW`s Listen Live menu now has additional options: Old Time Radio;
source? and even Classical! Source? Will have to listen more to that.
Only announcement heard was a std TOH WTWW jingle ID at 0100 employing
a fragment of Our National Anthem as produxion music, and as if on
``shortwave`` which this certainly is not.

5085 on by 0412 check with rock; no idea when it finally fired up;
along with JBA spur about 5098 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1530, Aug 21 at 0430 UT, I happen to tune across WCKY as
they are plugging Keith Olbermann [ex-MSNBC] for ``Worst Person in the
World`` each morning on his iHeart podcast; then ID as ``ESPN 1530,
Home of the Bengals`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Aug 20 from 1445 past 1530, no signal
from LRA36 into Argentine remote this Saturday. At first I was camping
on Gary Pence, and briefly sometime before 1500 heard some music, but
he may have switched to a different frequency. Still nothing at 1809
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 11775, Aug 20 at 1810-1840+, very nice Chinese
traditional instrumental music nonstop on CRI via Kashgar, standard
accusation, scheduled as German 18-20 UT, but one of the languages
they can`t be bothered to utter anymore; VG S9/+20 into Canary SDR I
am rechecking for Nigeria 11770 but which gets nothing but splatter
from this. Continues past 1900 without a break or any announcement
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [non]. 5130-, UT Sat Aug 20 at 0238-0300, `Greek Music
Refuge` as programmed by Zach Liangas and presented by U. Bill Tilford
on WBCQ Radio Angela, S9/+10 but noisy into Maryland SDR; would have
been better on a higher band such as 9420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.936, Aug 20 at 0626, Voice of Nigeria is back! I have
been checking for it every night after 0600 so am sure this is the
first date reactivated. S9+10/20 undermodulated in presumed Hausa on
signature skewed frequency.

My last previous observation: ``7254.9v, July 12 at 0635, NO signal
from VON nor has there been for several weeks, checked almost every
night after 0600; nor have I seen any other reports about this, nor
other possible frequencies 9690-, 11770-, 15120 being heard at any
hours.``

Before then it had been sporadic: you never knew whether it would be
on after 0600 or not. I had not logged it assiduously so unsure when
it last appeared. Originally had three transmitters, but two of them
already collapsed.

7255- would sometimes be on before 0600 with musical prélude and neat
drumming IS. Nominal sked was 0600-1100 including English 0800-1000;
and 2000-2100 per Aoki. 15120 might also appear evenings in DRM.

11770- was also previously scheduled at 1500-2100 including English at
1630-1900, but Aug 20 at 1620, none of it into Canary Islands SDR,
just JBA on-frequency from presumed PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi, East
Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and
other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933 USB, Aug 20 at 0126, heavy jazz/guitar S9, 0128
ID overdone that I can`t understand, ``--- Radio``, more past 0136.
These say it`s Thunder Chicken Radio, at 2341 moved up from 6930 USB
as in previous report:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,100843.0.html
Never heard any SSTV beepery while I was retuned (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, August 20 at 0127, soft rock S9/+10 but
undermod compared to 6933 USB station; then, ``I wanna hold your
hand``. 0129 SFX and Ballsmacker Radio ID: still on a reliable Friday
night schedule? Many more logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,100854.0.html
Seems the keyword for song titles was ``hold`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), catching up with `Ukraine: Security Issue`
from archive rather than UR1 relay by WRMI at 0500: Aug 18, day 176:
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_18_08_22.mp3
Including: Trainloads of heavy Russian weapons. Shrapnel dangerous for
civilians, not just missiles themselves. Russians even deliberately
injure themselves in order to avoid fighting, be evacuated. Russians
confiscating cars. Zap. power plant situation increasingly tense.
Claim Ukrainians are making provocations. Turkish pres. visiting
Ukraine, inspecting grain exportation. Risk of radiation leak at
plant.

Aug 19, day 177:
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_19_08_22.mp3
Including: Kharkiv suffers most losses since beginning. Russia used $ 3
million missile to destroy dormitory of hearing-impaired people, no
military targets nearby. Is only 15 km from Russian frontline. Donbas
settlements destroyed every day, but have not been able to capture
entire Donbas. Russians aim exclusively at civilian targets as in
several cities. R stepping up nuclear blackmail. Mig31s deployed in
Kaliningrad with hypersonic missiles threatening Poland and Lithuania
neighbors (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: ``5850 UNITED

** U S A. (7489.9), UT Sat Aug 20 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`,
starts right off with ``look up`` to see how insignificant humans are
in light of the Webbscope -- *another* repeat, 4th? time, of the
mid-July show; never mind. Then why did AW plug this earlier today
with a twit giving the phone number as if it would be new? (Glenn

Somehow my original report of this is missing from the Roundup for
that week, so here it is now:

1380, Jan 15 at 0601-0641 UT, monitoring the MW DX test from
KQKD, 1380, Redfield SD. My report to CPC for eQSL:

Thanks for the test! First time I`ve heard KQKD, which is about 580
miles north of me in Enid OK.

I heard the VVV DE KQKD IDs immediately at 0601 UT January 15. I then
recorded 0605-0636 UT and later went thru the file to pick out two
areas with VVV VVV VVV DE KQKD KQKD KQKD - several times. Most of the
rest of the time if anything could be heard, it was sweep tones
upward, or solid tones. The recorder timing may not be too accurate,
but should be correct within 1 or 2 minutes.

Solid tones: 0611, 0612, 0616, 0627
Sweeps upward: 0613, 0625, 0629, 0631, 0635
Siren - varying tone: 0615

The first clip of Vs and IDs at about 0611; second clip about 0623.
One must listen closely but I am sure I copied ``KQKD`` several
times.

This was on my Icom R75, which runs off an east-west 100-foot
longwire, not well positioned for north/south reception. On MW I turn
off the preamps to avoid overload. Dominant station among lots of QRM
was Mexican music, probably KMUS Sperry/Tulsa OK, some 110 miles east
of here, 250 watts at night.

I also heard this on my DX-398 receiver with internal antenna only,
sweeps at 0607 UT. This allowed local 1390 KCRC Enid to be somewhat
nulled. In both cases tuned on LSB to minimize KCRC.

FYI, I did not employ any remote SDR at any time for this test.

Some background info about KQKD would also be of interest, such as
what the call letters may signify, either by original choice or
subsequent slogan formation. Looking forward to an eQSL. Thanks, and
73, (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Aug 20 at 0632, R. Vanuatu reconfirmed as still
AWOL. BTW, Ron Howard`s sesquiminute clip of it appears at the end of
WOR 2152 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Aug 19 at 1515-1615, no signal of
LRA36 into LU4AA remote in Argentina; checking just in case Friday
substitute for Wednesday debacle. Less seriously, I mistyped as LR4AA
in last report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 335 MCW kHz, Aug 19 at 0650, dash and YLD, 1000 watt ND
beacon at Chapleau, Ontario, which is between Sault Ste-Marie and
Timmins. A regular in winter but first time heard in months. 332 QT
Thunder Bay and 248 WG Winnipeg also audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Aug 19 at 0640, RHC English at S9/+20; natch, after
mention last time that`s it`s usually in Spanish after 06. Unknown
whether really also in English after 05. Only other still on is 6100,
JBA and not sure which language - unless it`s also sked Korea North
propagating as early as 15:40 local. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Aug 19 at 2037, S7/S9 of suppressed modulation spikes
only, presumed RHC Spanish where something`s always wrong (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Aug 19 at 2136, NO signal of R. Cairo in English
unto Canary SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, Aug 19 at 2317, howling and laughing,
audience reaxion to someguy speaking about ticket prices, vs heavy
storm noise level adding up to S3/S7. Three more as unID here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,100843.0.html
as of 2329, maybe more IDed later? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Aug 19 at 2033, NO signal of REE direct, surely off
the air despite propagation degraded and no other signals on 16 mb.
Nor at 2134 into Canary Islands SDR. 15520 S4/S6 at 2033, and 11940
JBA carrier direct. But at 2134 to Canary, 15520 is VG but now in
Arabic like // 11670 good but with squeal --- and 11940 in Spanish has
horrible distortion like Aug 17; none checked on Aug 18. Something`s
always nogood at Noblejas.

2200 tokEnglish on Friday, now on all three, but same situation.
Without 17855, none very good to Maryland; despite way offbeam toward
ME, best on 15520 via Canarias. Topix: report from Beirut, and
interview someone from British embassy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.018, Aug 19 at 2201, VOT English is on today, S9+45/50
into UTwente but with squeal! I am not going to put up with that.
Autonotch does not work on it, and removed only by narrowing bandwidth
too far, below 2.37 kHz. It`s equally bad on LSB and USB so part of
the DSB modulation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Off by
2355 so no extra German and Portuguese tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 293 MCW kHz, Aug 19 at 0648, FBY, 25-watt ND beacon at
Fairbury, Nebraska - a regular in winter but first time audible in
months (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Confirmed first airings UT Friday August 19 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5810 VG
direct; 7730 back on air this week, S9/+15 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Friday August 19 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed Friday August 19 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 direct but
vs high local line noise level.

Not confirmed and not checked Aug 19 at 1815 on IRRS 7290 & 1323, as
expected to be pre-empted on third Friday, so we were out voting
early. Did anyone not hear it?

Confirmed Friday August 19 at 2054 the 2030 on AM Italia, 1323 kHz,
S9/+20 into nearby Noale, atop some song CCI, what? Neither Romanian
SDR is getting it and one has me JBA. Kuwait is not getting Iran. UK
stations are very low power. That leaves 10 kW from Tanzania?
Unsought. Or some of the several China super-stations adding up to
over 1300 kW, but the music sounded Western. 2100 IRRS SW ID and FSN
without the CCI? But with storm crashes from Croatia to Poland. Next:
