** AUSTRALIA [non]. `Calling All Radio Nutz`, I monitor on and off for
the first time via the Unique Radio stream, as it has just been
rescheduled for 20-22 biweekly UT Saturdays.
http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/listen.pls

From 2035 UT Nov 28, tune-in to VP off-the-air DX recording of
something in Indonesian, then hi-fi music. 2041 back-announcement, has
been a band from Benin called Orchestra; the preceding DX tapes were
R. CANDIP, Zaire, 5066 from 1983y; UAE Radio, Abu Dhabi when it was on
11m, 25900; RRI Jakarta, 9680 from 1982? Is it still active? One
co-host asks, No, replies the other who used to get it regularly in
Denver. The latter is ``Jen, Radio Nutress`` --- does that mean they
identify as female? Voice is ambiguous, soft-spoken and sometimes
overridden by noise, such as someone unexpectedly on the roof
installing an AC.

CARN is an extremely informal live show. 2053 an off-air recording of
something in German. Recheck at 2124, the conversant in UK, called
G.B.? or Mike? is giving some DX news, Inconfidência on 15190, Brasil
DRM on 11880, Tumbril on 6070. 2126 into live bandscanning, comparing
what they are hearing on same frequencies in widely divergent
locations, such as 6000, 5995 Mali; 6050 - HCJB? mixing with
something, Chinese, also ELWA? I think it`s a bit early for Ecuador.
2149 more vintage clips, Reloj de Costa Rica, I guess on 6006,
something from Iceland. Meanwhile I also find:

Unique Radio has resumed streaming and changed times for WOR, also
showing expected SW frequencies when they resume from new location:
details at http://www.uniqueradio.biz
and webcast at http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/listen.pls
Friday at 1200 on 5045-USB, Saturday at 0600 on 5045-USB, Sunday at
0600 on 3210-USB, Tuesday at 1300 on 3210-USB. So these have been
reinserted into the WOR sked http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 5050, Nov 28 at 2321, JBA carrier, presumed V of Beibu Bay
Radio, Nanning, morning 2300-0102 broadcast no longer blocked by WWRB
on weekends, moved to 3215, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Nov 28 from 2327, WOOB 9-16+ MHz; cannot
be positive none be Sound of Hope or other targets as too weak to
parallel, but no reason to believe they be anything but on-frequency
jammers; when there is any audio it`s Chinese or seems Chinese: JBA or
JBA carriers u.o.s.:

9215 stands out as S9+20, far stronger than any of the others, topping
an open carrier on 9218; 9200 S7-S9; 9280; At 2336: 10160; 10820;
10870 S4-S5; 10920 S5-S7; 11070 S3; 11100; 11170. At 2340: 11430
S3-S4; 11440; 11460; 11500 S2-S3; At 2346: 12190; 12210; 12500 S4-S5;
13070 S6-S7; 13130 S5-S6; 13160; At 2354: 13530 S6-S7 vs CODAR; 14940;
no 15s or 16s tho some RTTY is propagating above 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA. 11670, Nov 28 at 2342, during CNR1 jammer survey, Chinese
not // here, as it`s CNR2 non-jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 21, Nov 28 at 1936 UT, I`m surprised to see some DTV
area tropo enhancement still in vigour in the afternoon, as four hours
earlier it wasn`t quite enough to decode KUOT-CD, OKC, but now it is:
same PSIP as KUOT on all subchannels:
21-1, 3ABN
21-2, no signal! and diamond, an incoming error message at station
{IBN Television}
21-3, 211? - not sure of my scribble
21-4, algo with LIVE bug UR {Amazing Facts}
21-5, Hope bug UR {Hope Channel}
These do not all match the lineup at as above (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12808.5-CW, Nov 28 at 2350, VVV marker from KPH, the
weekend-only legacy run of KPH by MRHS in California. A few other
markers on 12 MHz probably South Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. After an hour of napping along with KUCO`s anonymous
post-opera birthday vocal music show, I tune on the same portable
DX-398 with telescopic only to what I know will be a bigsig aimed
right at us from Okeechobee:

7570, Sat Nov 28 from 2300, WRMI with the publicized anniversary
replay of the inaugural broadcast of Texas Radio Shortwave. I hope for
the special eQSL repeatedly offered for detailed reports. Opens with a
song by Floyd Domino, `You Can`t Get The Hell Out of Texas`. Frequent
Turkey-gobble-gobble SFX, for this was originally a TG show, now a
biday late. 2304 plug gmail address and frequently, mostly by Third
Mate Susan roboyl; and ``all the music was carefully selected and
mixed by DJ Mr. Turkey``.

Most of the songs to follow are unfamiliar to me, titles and
performers not announced, so I may only give vague descriptions of
some, I would say lots of novelty tunes, and I do not shazaam. 2305
hard rock about America; 2312 it`s S9+20/35, as I start DXing with my
right ear on the big rig, continuing this into my left ear. 2315
gobbler and segué; 2320 song includes some talking; 2323 ID by M&W
voices, Mr Turkey DJ credit again. 2325 song about Mexican farmers,
mentions several XE cities or states. 2328 QSL offer again; 2331
another ID and Happy TG. 2343 ID & Mr. Turkey, blues tune. 2352 gobble
only. 2356 a song I do recognize, `Great Pretender`. 2358 closing with
address, ``Happy Thanxgiving`` five times. Just a bit of `TROT`
alla-marcia theme, was a ``look-back at our inaugural broadcast``.
Susan concludes, ``Until next time, keep the wind at your back.``

Two or three times during this hour I also scanned the 6.9 MHz pirate
band, but no sign of Radio Ga-Ga which was also going to air this
special, which it was first to broadcast a year ago. Maybe it was
during previous hour. No other pirates heard either. Altho TRSW is
still a pirate of non-public provenance, now that it`s appearing on
non-pirate stations, pirate specialists seem to have lost interest in
it. 0000 WRMI switches 7570 to ``He Leadeth Me`` morphing into the
moanin` & groanin` hour of TOMBS: add to that: howlin` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, Sat Nov 28 at 2324, WWRB is on with S9+20/30 of dead
air; recheck at 2332 now a gospel huxter about going to hell (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Nov 29 about 0130 WTWW-2 with `Theater Organ
Under the Arch` in progress, so I listen on the $ tereo webcast altho
some of the recordings are rather lo-fi; ends at 0154 so WTWW can get
back to inorganic ``Surfin` USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 6230-USB, Nov 28 at 1352, coastal marine
weather info, obsessed with wind direxions and gusting speeds in
knots, S6; 1354, ``end of transmission from VMW``, i.e. Wiluna,
Western Australia, which is far inland in central WA, hardly a marine
town, rather a gold-mining town: ``Wiluna is a small town in the Mid
West region of Western Australia. It is situated on the edge of the
Western Desert at the gateway to the Canning Stock Route and Gunbarrel
Highway. Wikipedia``. But the VMW site was obviously chosen as at a
suitable skip distance from the coasts. EiBi shows hours as 10-23; but
also on 6230, Sound of Hope and CNR1/Firedrake jamming up to 24 hours.
When VMW goes off I do detect a JBA carrier, fortunately nothing more,
but that CCI should be a much greater hazard around Oz (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. More replies on the WOR iog about the DRM tests from RNA:

Re: [WOR] Brazil DRM tests Nov 28 at 6:04 PM

``Earlier in the week I noted the signal cutting in and out but — par
for the course — with a strong carrier on 11800 {sic - means 11880?}
from (p) Cuba, so nothing decoded and the analog signal from Cuba was
also subsumed in the DRM hash — meaning that at least in Michigan both
signals were worthless.

All this just proves DRM is a poor ‘solution’ to the noise of long
distance SWBC and as a ‘double whammy’ is rather ‘fragile’ too,
collapsing into unusable/undecodable noise in the presence of any
QRM.

One wonders if anyone involved in the design of the system actually
ever listened to SWBC or tried to receive DRM under ‘normal’
double-hop SW conditions? For some reason they seem to think QAM-64
(in whatever mode) is appropriate for SW despite the fact it isn’t.

In the great green room there was a telephone. And a radio. There
should always be a radio. ;) Ken Zichi``

``Yes, boring 'playground' since 2002 year of Fraunhofer software
appeared here in Europe, the BrasTelecom technicians play in front of
the christmas tree like out of b o r e d o m. Another event, once
more, in the never-ending story of this deadborn decode / encode radio
option product. Others attend very expensive conventions in luxury
hotels around the world every year.

It's a test only; nothing on air at 0830 UT Nov 28, grayline Ireland,
Azores, Brasília central Brazil. Technically it was an exciting
innovation in 2002 to 2008 year era, once. For digital DRM tests one
should occupy a frequency in the border range for example 11.5 to 11.6
MHz.

Around the Cuban RHC La Habana external service on 11880 kHz for
Central and mainly South Africa badly extensive to interfere
with a 17 kHz wide broadband digital signal. Thanks Rudolf from São
Paulo for his informative mail recently. 73 wolfie df5sx
https://www.wwdxc.de/topnews.shtml`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CANADA. 413-MCW kHz, Nov 28 at 0719 UT, dash and YHD, 250-watt ND
beacon at Dryden, Ontario.

401-MCW kHz, Nov 28 at 0721 UT, dash and YPO, 500-watt NDB at
Peawanuck, Ontario; also audible tuned to 400-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13635 & 13766 approx., Nov 28 at 1438, S9/+10 FM spurblobs
with F# tone from 13700-AM RHC, much stronger than 2nd-orders circa
13570 & 13831, approx. 65.5 kHz intervals. 13700 itself S9+10 has SAH
at fades, i.e. new CCI from Brother HyStairical via BULGARIA: see
SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545, Sat Nov 28 at *1530:39, cuts on with talk
already underway from Biato Yiakl scheduled Sat only via FRANCE, VP
S8-S9. Note my previous unID report of Wed Nov 25, something here at
same time but +.06 kHz off-frequency; I did not notice this one being
askew but not directly measured; I was waiting for it to turn on
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Nov 28 at 1545 UT I bandscan DTV as there is slight tropo
enhancement around here, showing BAD signals on 31, 22 and 21, but
more noticeable, my only local on RF17 has been reconfigured, no
longer showing virtual 41, KCYH-LD which is really in Ardmore, 256 km
= 159 stmi away. No longer alternating vacant channels, and no longer
three audio-only - the only DTV station I have seen ever doing that.
So no more ``Radio 74`` as on 89.3 Loyal. Here`s the new lineup with
PSIP IDs, note upper/lower cases:

17-1 K17JN-D - 3ABN bug in LR
17-2 QuoVida - QVtv bug in UR [never heard of this one before]
17-3 SmrtLfS - Smart Life Style / Television bug LR - no sound
on
Sanyo TV [``unsupported audio codec], OK via STB
17-4 HopeCh1 - Hope Channel bug UR - uplifted arms
17-5 AmFacts - Amazing Facts but no bug now; audio same as 17-3

BTW, closed-captioning only on 17-1; is that legal? Did I mention that
this Enid station was off for a while after last month`s ice storm?
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850, Nov 28 at 1359, TOMBS non-pausing, yet
I can barely recognize underneath the intonations of a canned Bob
Biermann WRMI ID. At 1400 is // 5800 and no doubt many others for the
expanded Sabbathcasts. And that is not all!

13700, Nov 28 at 1402, TOM is here as BS is blathering on about the
Sevens, as one of his wacko obsessions is numerology, interrupting
himself for phone contact info; RHC has not come on yet. A frequency
with TOMBS ending in -00 has got to be new from Secretbrod, BULGARIA,
but not yet listed in EiBi or Aoki/NDXC. HFCC as of my 15 Nov download
had 13700 from SOF only at 16-18 in Arabic! Ivo Ivanov had reported:

``SECRETLAND Brother HySTAIRical via SPL Secretbrod on November 18
1400-1430 13700*SCB 050 kW / 126 deg to N/ME awful strong dead air
1430-1510 13686vSCB 050 kW / 126 deg to N/ME with awful modulation``

11600 also bears Bulgarian BS, Nov 28 at 1449, yelling // 5850 WRMI
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 420-MCW kHz, Nov 28 at 0716 UT, ND beacon TU, 25 watts from
TUpelo - Verona, Mississippi. I was tuned to 419-USB. At first I
thought it might be TUlsa, OK, but its TU is on 338 with 30 watts;
have I ever heard it? Not lately if ever. On 338 if anything, I hear
RYN which is in yet another TU-town, Tucson. But in classaxe.com,
someone last logged Tulsa on 2020-11-05. Getting back to 420, I am
simul-hearing much more common FQ, 25 watts in Fairmont, Minnesota,
and also when tuned to 418-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2062 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
November 28 at 1322, the 1300 on WRMI 15770, S9. Next:

** U S A. 17775-, Sat Nov 28 at *1600, KVOH power is back on, cuts on
air just in time for English, 1601 Wavescan, via TWR Key West SDR but
too poor in noise to keep listening. PG&E cut power to KVOH area
yesterday as fire precaution forcing it off the air (Glenn Hauser, oK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Nov 28 at 1358 open carrier, no doubt WEWN Spanish not
turned off yet, despite day frequency 12050 already on with IS,
proving that there are two different transmitters. The chanting IS I
was thinking is `Salve Regina`, but does not seem to match online
versions of it. A pity that years ago WRTH stopped including IS info,
even musical notations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, Nov 28 at 1344 UT, dead air but finally some dinging,
so it`s RCC mass, and mention of ``sacrament`` in English, ergo KEXS
Excelsior Springs MO - Kansas City market, with EWTN radio, same mass
we would be hearing if WEWN were on the SW air any more in the
mornings. It`s being overtaken by a gospel huxter citing Leviticus,
likely remnant of KAAY Little Rock, and making a slow SAH of 28/minute
= 0.47 Hz. Catholix vs Protestants! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, November 28 at 1332
UT: 1566, surely 250-kW HLAZ South Korea. None others found, not even
NHK biggies on 774, etc. I`m seldom awake pre-sunrise, always running
a sleep-deficit. Today`s LSR was 1322 UT, but the latest will be about
1344 circa Epiphany, or OrthoXmas. OTOH, our earliest sunset will be
in about a week, 2316 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

``Well, they are tests, and by nature tests may be irregular. I don't

Hauser, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5800, UT Sat Nov 28 at 0300, once again this week,
WRMI is playing `Encore` classical music. I notified the WOR iog ASAP
and wondered if this replace UT Thu on same, as Richard Lemke says
that was missing this week. And also Brice Avery who is unaware of
this emission in his publicity. But this is a prepeat, probably first
airing anywhere as on the 28/11 playlist.
https://www.tumbril.co.uk/playlist-2
which I think will become playlist-1 when there is a new one next
week. I enjoy the hour very much via a remote in Missouri in the Synch
AM mode --- S9+30 almost ``local`` reception but totally mono. WRMI
skedgrid still has a blank in this space, with Encore on Thu.

About the playlist, the layout is rather confusing. Ma Vlast, for
instance, does not attribute it to Smetana but seemingly to Dvorak:
evidently the third column is the name of the record which presumably
included this piece. In classical music, the composer always comes
first --- then the title of the piece, movement; then the performers.
After that the less important record title and label. The way this
displays, the composer may or may not show up in any of the columns,
or may be incorrect. Brice`s announcements, of course, are more
explicit and with some further info.

Another thing I wish he would fix: ``playing out`` on the final piece,
which means it is going to get chopped off abruptly at 59:30 for the
WRMI ID before it`s finished. This is extremely jarring and unfair to
the music. Make the program a little shorter, 59:00? and/or start the
last piece in time for it to complete, preferably also then with a
back announcement and good-bye (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490.1v), UT Sat Nov 28 at 0100, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`
notes: says is on 7490 & 6160 only. WBCQ is fine, crew is well.
Looking for one or two full-time engineers to hire, good pay; very
little COVID-19 in northern Maine --- but see this gh found:
``Aroostook County reports record high COVID-19 cases for a single day
--- Alexander MacDougall • November 24, 2020``

https://fiddleheadfocus.com/2020/11/24/news/aroostook-county-reports-record-high-covid-19-cases-for-a-single-day/
--- County population is about 70K, he says. Aroostook is huge, the
cap all over northern Maine, and down the NB border. Last week a pump
blew a seal, so off the air for a day, and there was no spare, AHW`s
fault, but the crew soon got it back on air. Not clear which
transmitter(s) he is talking about.

Still waiting to acquire WHRI, delays in getting FCC approval, maybe
because they are working from home. Otherwise would be on air right
now with World`s Last Chance program --- and he mentions NO other
program in connexion with WHRI, so it`s pretty clear WLC is
bankrolling this too. Believes China should compensate handsomely
every single American for the virus which was no accident. Discussing
safety measures around electricity, and that common household 120V AC
is among the most dangerous, because it locks your muscles up so you
can`t let go before it kills you. So avoid getting shocked.

At 0124 finally datestamps this as 27 of November YOOL 2020. Then
reads a Nov 18 Radio World article about stations other than KDKA
being ``first``, such as MXZ Marconi in England, 9XM Madison WI now
WHA, 8MK to WBL to WWJ Detroit. Discussion of VLF stations such as NAA
Cutler, Maine. 0149 Angela reads some e-mail. AHW has A-Fib (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490, Nov 28 at 0528, outro of `Heart to Heart with Kimberly
Ann`, World Harvest Radio promo, 0530 Pete Sumerall introduces late
father Lester. So it`s WHRI as registered in HFCC B-20 for 0430-0600.
Yet, the WBCQ program schedule claims it is on 7490 at 0400-0600 with
a wacko conspiracy show I am not going to name. Since I first pointed
out this anomaly of WHRI signing off 7490 at 0600, there has been a
resounding lack of interest: it seemed as if WBCQ might already be
doing some programming on a Furman transmitter.

6160, Nov 28 at 0545, I monitor 6160v which is certainly WBCQ while a
talk show is in progress --- is that the one their schedule mistakenly
shows as on 7490? At 0554 host says not going to do a third hour
tonight --- that`s certainly flexible! Refers to ``want to show you
this ---`` so apparently originally a web/podcast with video. As
commercial plug. Jeffrey Daugherty is host, so that clinches my
conclusion about WBCQ showing wrong frequency on sked (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re last report, 17775-, KVOH being off: converting PST to
UT, I was thinking 21, but somehow wrote 18, sigh; fixed:

...We expect the power to be returned by about 1 pm Pacific, [21 UT]
but KVOH will be off by then anyway. Ray``

We shall hear if it`s really repowered by 1600 Saturday for Wavescan
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Re

Tx was shut down today

Yes, boring 'playground' since 2002 year of Fraunhofer software
appeared here in Europe,

the BrasTelecom technicians play in front of the christmas tree
like out of b o r e d o m.

Another event, once more, in the never-ending story of this
deadborn decode / encode radio option product.

Others attend very expensive conventions in luxury hotels around the world
every year.

It's a test only;
nothing on air at 08.30 UT Nov 28,
grayline Ireland, Azores, Brasilia central Brazil.

Technically it was an exciting innovation in 2002 to 2008 year
era, once.

For digital DRM tests one should occupy a frequency
in the border range for example 11.5 to 11.6 MHz.

Around the Cuban RHC La Habana external service on 11880 kHz
for Central and mainly South Africa badly extensive to interfere
with a 17 kHz wide broadband digital signal.

Thanks Rudolf from Sao Paulo for his informative mail recently.

BRAZIL. 11880, replies to no DRM heard from RNA as last reported:
"11875-11880-11885, Nov 27 at 2252, cannot hear any DRM under RHC-AM
in English".

"Well, they are tests, and by nature tests may be irregular. I don't
know for sure, but I'd guess they are trying to fix whatever was
causing transmitter dropouts all the time. 73 -- Chris Mackerell,
