A variety of sources and formats are now linked from the WOR homepage;
click on B22 at
Some of them have not yet been updated, notably bclnews.it due to the
death of Roberto Scaglione last summer amid the A22 season.

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wed Nov 16 at 1459, tune-in LRA36 via
Argentine SDR, song is playing at S6/S7; 1503 sign-on, multi-lingual
ID, staff names; 1504 themesong; 1508 recitation about Belgrano bases
1 and 2; 1510 song; 1513.5 ``nos une`` ID and live YLs for the 31st
program of the Esperanza Audaz season, miércoles 17 de noviembre;
mentions Mundial, imminent SBG; current conditions, 4 degrees, cloudy,
9 kph winds; SR/SS approx. 3 am/10 pm local. There is now a
``penumbra``, not totally dark overnight. They see lights from a lot
of excursions, cruise ships. 1519 contact info, this-week-in-history,
song; 1525 ``su cía`` ID; 1526 more about history of Belgrano bases;
1531 someone on phone, or rather picked up off speakerphone, bad
audio; 1545 song; 1547 connexion to SDR lost, so I find another with
worse reception; 1555 something about magnetic field, ionosphere; 1556
my attention switches to a rare SAQ 17.2 kHz CW transmission, with
great YT coverage! 1608 music, ``nos une`` ID. YL talk continues but
stops abruptly at 1616, and nothing more for 5+ minutes (Glenn Hauser,

** BRAZIL. 6180, Nov 16 at 0754, Brazuguese at S9/+10 and seems // JBA
11780, so RNA apparently just came on before 5 am local (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA [non]. This item caught my eye, from Harold Frodge at
another MARE DXpedition, Brighton, Michigan: ``5010 Radio
República via WRMI; 0442, 11/12; ID & SS rlgn & talk re Cubanos.
SIO=453+ (Frodge-DXP)``

That was UT Saturday. I was unaware of this transmission, and
rechecking the WRMI Programming page and skedgrids, there is NO
mention of R.R. at all, strangely enough, just some vague broadcasts
to Cuba via France on 9490. A few weeks ago, there was also a R.R. on
WRMI itself, 5800 at 03-04, but it soon disappeared from the website
and the air.

The transmission grid for WRMI-14, 5010, 181 degrees to Caribbean,
does show System C at 03-06; but nonesuch in the C program grid,
just contradictorily, R. Liberty in Russian at 04-05 on 15770!

Now the 9490 emissions are shown as 01-02 UT on Tue/Wed/Thu; 01-04 UT
on Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon. This is Wed, so 9490 is already off.

5010, Wed Nov 16 at 0344, via TWR Bonaire SDR at S7/9+10 with NO
jamming, I`m tuning in early to check out HF`s report: and find R.R.
is already on air so probably started at 0300 if not even earlier. I
keep monitoring as the only topic at great length seems to be derechos
de trabajo = workers` rights, as if this were Labor Day. As I tuned in
they were quoting Jorge Mas Canosa, and some lemas. Break for WRMI ID
at 0359, and more; still going past 0432. 0439 announces sked for 9490
only. 0443 besides the directorio.org main website, refers to another
site for audio, www.radiorepublica.us Still going past 0500; 0556 says
has been about workers` education, sked again for 9490 only; 0559 WRMI
Spanish ID and 0600 finally switch to The Overcomer Ministry Brother
Stair - TOMBS. Like 9490, the span of this may vary from day to day.

So it appears WRMI is repeating earlier broadcasts on 9490, maybe not
even same date, as this was at least three hours long, while only one
hour was originally scheduled for this day. Nothing about 5010 on air
or on website no doubt has delayed Cuban jamming from attacking it.
Meanwhile the dentroCubans are still absent from 5025 & 5040 - which
BTW could theoretically produce a leapfrog mixing product interfering
with WRMI on 5010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Nov 16 at 2150, S9+15/30 of humwhine only, no
programod in English from R. Cairo; kudos however for consistent
frequency precision at minus 5 Hz! Something`s always egregious in
Egypt, abysmal at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Nov 16 at 2310, token English from REE VG S9+15/30
into Maryland SDR, Coe interview about flamenco performances; 2325
correspondent from Beirut who seems to be a regular. All others on,
weaker but sufficient, 12030 > 11940 > 11685 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Nov 16 at 2310, NO signal from VOT English into
UTwente, only imperial Chinese from East Turkistan, standard
denunciation; into Maryland at 2330 check, not even that (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening

** VANUATU. 7890, Nov 16 at 0738, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu X 2, but
nothing audible on X 3 = 11835. Manuel Méndez, Spain, was hearing
11835 direct today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, Nov 16 at 0755, JBA carrier, probably Radio 4KZ,
Queensland, about equal to 5020 presumed Solomons. No Cubans, WTWW or
anything else above 5010 WRMI to distract (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
