** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed Aug 11 at 1447, NO signal from
LRA36 into two Brazilian remotes. Wed used to be their primary day,
last week followed by additional Thu-Fri-Sat-Sun, but not Mon or Tue.
Wonder if they were running out the clock before a prolonged hiatus?
Maybe not. Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, forwards a note in the form of
jpg which I translate:

``THE NEW LRA 36 --- Today 16:23 --- Dear Audience, we inform you that
due to adverse meteorological conditions, unfortunately we are not
able to emit the program on shortwave. Our sincere apologies for this;
we are working to resume the service again. Thanks for your
unconditional support`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Aug 11 at 2302 and later, NO signal from RHC English,
but audible on noisy 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, Aug 11 at 2157, VOT IS and IDs in English,
on the air today after at least two days missing; S9/+20 into Maryland
SDR but undermodulated; still past 2230 COVID-19 PSA while I was
mainly listening to the competition from Spain; 2250 direct, already
dead air and soon off. Had a much stronger signal here than REE 17855,
equally strong there and louderly modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2098 monitoring: as usual I sleep thru the
1030 Wed on WRMI 5850, August 11. Did anyone hear it? When it is on, I
wonder if anyone is axually listening, by chance or intentionally, in
the Pacific or east Asia when this is prime evening time?

Confirmed Wed Aug 11 after 2100 on WRMI 7780, good S8-S9 via NA5B SDR
in Maryland which shows carrier offset only +0.2 Hz. And about 21
seconds later on WBCQ 7489.9, carrier +1.5 Hz; same meter strength
S8-S9 but then to +10. Louder modulation on WBCQ. Both marred by
storm crashes as there is a huge line from Louisiana to Vermont
including the WDC area. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary
support: no new contributions this week which might have been via
PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank
to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA.

Next new WOR 2099 should be ready by early UT Friday August 13 for
download and first SWBC at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Aug 11 at 2258, this WRMI is still off like last
night; #5 transmitter supposedly 24h mainly TOMBS or SMTV, but briefer
segments of Family Radio, RAE. 285 degrees, same azimuth as 7730 #13
but always much weaker than it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, Aug 11 at 0615, TOMBS via WBCQ, allegedly 50 KW, is
VP, with some CODAR QRM both plus and minus. So this is not so ideal a
frequency after all (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Aug 11 at 0616, WWCR with S9+30 of DEAD AIR AGAIN,
rather than TOMBS. Standard remarx (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Altice/Suddenlink cable TV interrupts whatever channel we
are watching and presumably all of them for a nationwide emergency
alert test, Aug 11 at 1822 UT -- as we dodge for the mute button, and
also quickly turn on the R75 for a MW bandscan, but by then, no sign
of the test, all ops normal. The nominal time for it was 1820 UT; it
seems that overtaking OTA broadcasting and cable is now an
afterthought to these:

** ANDORRA [non]. As previously reported, I heard the R. Andorra
special via AUSTRIA 6180 via a remote receiver. I did not send them a
reception report nor request a QSL. However, it was announced that the
``QSLs`` would be generic, not personalized to name the recipient, so
I am no less generic in claiming this as it might as well be mine, one
of several reproduxions of it on the web:
https://aer.org.es/archivos/30542
In fact it does not say it`s a QSL or verifying anything, more like a
publicity poster. BTW, I am not put off by kelka shows in French: it
is probably my fourth-best language (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Aug 10 at 1510, no signal into Brasil
SDR from LRA36 this Tuesday; we`ll see if it`s back Wednesday, which
had been its #1 DOW, until last week it kept showing up on Thu, Fri,
Sat, Sun; but not Mon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Aug 11 at 0126, no signal from R. Progreso, nominally
*0030-0400*. Gone too are its scratchyspurs 17-18 kHz above and below.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Aug 10 at 1854, RHC in Kriyol // 15140, but 15370 is
not supposed to be on yet, rather from *1930 in French starting Euro
service. So I keep on it for English to get duplicated too, but 15370
goes off at 1900* just as English start on 15140. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9535 & 9710, Aug 11 at 0132, both RHC Spanish 31 mb
frequencies are missing; 11850 is S9/+10 but as so often is JBM and
suptorted; JBA parasitic spur carrier also on 11840. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. Not missing are 13740 & 11670 in Spanish (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Aug 11 at 0134, RHC in English! instead of Spanish,
undermodulated and with humbuzz much like that infesting 6060 after
0500. // 6000 is much louder and 6165 less so. Feedlines mixed up?
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9580, Aug 11 at 0133, CRI English relay is S9+30/40,
undermodulated and slightly distorted. But sufficient with volume
turned up, American accent about American events; could it really be
CHINA?? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba; while RHC itself is
missing from 9535 & 9710 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Aug 10 at 1508, Kashmir Civitas weekly
clandestine reconfirmed this Tuesday, via IRRS presumably Romania,
usual Urdu talk and music, VG S9/+10 into UTwente. But at 1523
already, sudden cut to classic song in English ``This Magic Moment``,
and more rock to 1529* with no announcements. Unknown whether KashCiv
show were short this week or something went wrong to chop it,
defaulting to fill music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 10 circa 2210, VOT is missing again from North
American English. Not even a signal at UTwente. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2098 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St.

** U S A. (7489.9v), Aug 9 at 2329, after listening to the secret
repeat of the first half of `UBMP` on WBCQ webcast, Monday at 2300, a
spot commercial for Progressive Insurance, immediately followed by the
regular 2330 show `Camp Constitution Radio`. It`s hard to believe that
a major advertiser such as P.I. would intentionally be sponsoring such
an obscure political SW show. What is going on? Have they bought some
spots on WBCQ and one happens to be inserted here [as I noticed once
before: maybe every week]? Spot advertising on US SW stations is
exceeding rare, not to be confused with commercials within a
totally-sponsored syndicated show; tho some appear amid otherwise
unrelated musical filler on WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Aug 11 at 0131, tonight`s missing WRMI frequency,
while neighbor 9395 achieves S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7506-7508, Aug 10 at 2230, multiple random tones, or
rather carriers on slightly different frequencies, at UTwente audible
in SSB or SynchAM modes, but not plain AM. Will not lock on to one
specific carrier frequency. Not CW, i.e. Morse with a message. Seems
unrelated to weak signal on 7505, which is RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan
this hour only; and/or ChiCom jamming. The tones could be a different
kind of jamming, but they continue past 2300 when 7505 has gone off.
In fact, beepery still at 2345. Not a UTwente artifact, as same thing
heard on nearby Nordhorn, Germany SDR at 2349.

Normally I employ remote SDRs just to check something out on a
specific frequency, rather than full bandscanning which I do myself to
discover new things: but the noise level here is so bad and the
propagation currently so poor that I was bandscanning 7300+ up at
UTwente, with probably more to come (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Monday August 9 at 1502 check, no
signal from LRA36 into two Brazilian SDRs. Had been active last 5
days, Wed-Thu-Fri-Sat-Sun (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Re decommissioning ND beacons, Richard Lacroix, odxa: A
copy of Aeronautical Study - NAVAID Modernisation can be found here:
https://copanational.org/sites/copanational.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Aeronautical-Study-NAVAID-Modernisation.pdf
(via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6931-USB, Aug 9 at 0024, S6 mostly soft songs with
long pauses, 0025 resuming S5 to spixe of S7-S8. Occasional quick
announcements, unreadable; 0053 soft ballad; 0057 upbeat bluegrass;
0100 another pause but no ID, then as in

``House of the rising Sun - The White Buffalo with Forest Rangers``
from KIND (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6860-USB, Aug 9 at 0116, rock music at S9/+10; 0120
electronic. These pirates competing with Olympix closing ceremony as
delayed on NBC TV. It is Mix Radio International:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,84845.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 341-MCW kHz, Aug 9 at 0614 UT, Enid`s NDB, EI,
is off again so at JBA strain level vs noise, 341 signal #2, OIN from
Oberlin KS is copied. 515-MCW PN Ponca City and 255-MCW SW Stillwater
also remain off; but 350-MCW RG in OKC remains reliable. A couple of
the big Canux also audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, Aug 9 at 0118, JBA music, presumed
Nowhere Radio. I am still suffering from high local line noise level
on LW thru MW thru most SW bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Aug 9 at 2200, it`s Monday so time for another token
English semihour from REE; VG 9/+15 via Maryland SDR; 15520 is OFF,
but also well audible on 11940 for SAm and even 11670 for Africa.
Justin Coe introduces news to be followed by the so-called `DX
program` which is really a mailbag; he gets into that at 2208,
admitting that he`s ``not used to working``, just back from a 2-week
holiday inside Spain but not even reaching the beach.

So the show will be ``chaotic``; and it certainly is, but not much
more than usual. First has e-mail from Peter Jones in GB, who wonders
why English programs have been missing since July 22. He must be
referring to new podcasts posted, not SW. JC says there are struxural
problems at REE; summer holidays, not enough personnel to keep all
podcasts up and running. Sooner or later.

Then a report in English from someone in Guangdong for a Spanish
broadcast on 17855 with a SINPO of 44444. Wants a QSL and sticker, but
JC still hasn`t located who is responsible for QSLing; if and when,
will forward that report. You see, in August everything stops in
Spain. Next from Richard Lemke in Alberta suggesting ``have fun`` name
for mailbag.

This somehow leads into a bit about today Aug 9 being International
Day of Indigenous Peoples, by the UN. And 2222 talking about a
Guatemalan woman singer, Sara Culchich? sounded like, but a search
engine knows better, Curruchich. Yadda3, he goes on and on about her,
since he apparently played a bit of her music earlier and more to
follow. But by the time he gets around to that, it`s 2229.6 so only a
little bit before the 2230 timesignal and into French. It appears JC
is programming for the podcast of variable extended length, never mind
getting it cut short on SW. Anyhow, here is more about her I found,
and more linx to her songs:

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 9 at 2200 and later quick chex of Maryland SDR
during SPAIN, no signal today from VOT simulEnglish. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2098 monitoring: NOT confirmed
Sunday Aug 8 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia 918 kHz: S9+35 via Noale
SDR, after ID, goes to dead air for several minutes, and believed for
entire span to 2030; back with country music at 2115 check.

Confirmed Sun Aug 8 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+15 into Bonaire remote.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+10/20 direct.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America,
http://shoutcast.wrn.org:8025/NAMAAP
This direct link continues valid despite WRN website link broken.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0230 on WRMI 5800, S9+10 into Bonaire; but
// 7780 is OFF, as it was at earlier 0055 check, and later.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 kHz minus 102
Hz on SAM mode of Maryland SDR = 6159.898; slight glitch of a few
words of BS between ID and WOR start; after JL bi-weekly
expletive-laden show. So this is the reactivated time for WOR
replacing Sunday 2200; did not check A51 webcast then August 8 but may
well have been there too, as at 2230 HRI was starting, while 6160-
stayed with TOMBS past 2200. HRI has also moved to 0329 UT Mon; in too
big a hurry to start, cutting my last few closing words. Nevertheless,
``standard disclaimer`` still applies. By this time into Maryland,
WBCQ at S7-S9 is axually QRMing 6165 RHC more than vice versa, but not
so into OK closer to azimuth of RHC. Next, skipping any Tuesday
opportunity:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** VENEZUELA. 6205-AM, Aug 10 at 0015, nondescript music here with
ROCV reactivated. I`m camping on the Bonaire SDR which is all busy but
someone in Caracas already on this frequency, until they start tuning
around the 49mb at 0017. But quits by 0020 when I take over and back
to 6205, showing carrier offset plus 8 to 11 Hz at S5-S7, some strange
off-mike singing and clapping? or chugging? keeping rhythm past
0040+.

Manuel Méndez had reported on the WOR iog yesterday morning: ``ROCV,
El Tigre, Venezuela, 6205 on the air again testing --- Radio Onda
Corta Venezuela ROCV, El Tigre, 6205, is on air again as reported by
its engineer Gregorio Kina in the ROCV whatsapp group. Checked via SDR
remote receiver in Bonaire, heard right now, 1300-1311, 08-08 with
Venezuelan songs, "LLaneras" and others, ID "Somos Radio Onda Corta
Venezuela, El Tigre", "En Venezuela son las ...". Fair signal, not
possible to hear it here in Friol, NW of Spain at this time due to
daylight`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1080, Aug 9 at 0620 UT, C&W music overcoming KRLD on E/W
longwire, making slow SAH. Last year`s NRC AM Log shows only two C&W,
both daytimers: 250-watt KOAK Red Oak IA; and 10 kW KSLL Price UT.
KRLD remains dominant on DX-398, can`t get a DF on this nor enough
null of KRLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Aug 9 at 0618 UT, Spanish QRM to KWKH, with
super-hype voice actor, SHVA, could be USA or EUM. Last year`s NRC AM
Log shows only non-daytimer SS is KSDO 10/10 kW San Diego but
religious; supposed daytimers in GA, TN, TX. IRCA Mexican Log had 4 or
5 there. Getting more of it on E/W longwire than DX-398 so could not
DF it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANDORRA [non]. Christian Milling of shortwaveservice, who produced
the 6180 special aired via Austria, August 7, replies:

``Well, the show was a program from Summer 1979, one of about 10 still
existing complete original recordings on cassette in more or less
studio quality from Radio Andorra that survived the severe storage
conditions in the more than 30 years abandoned transmitter building in
Encamp. The program was composed by the last artistical director of
Radio Andorra, Arty Parera together with the chansonnier Sacha Distel,
one of the most important artists of France at that time. But for sure
this rusty old tape can't beat the excitement of a WOR show. And
sorry, we "forgot" North America again, the undoubtedly center of the
universe...``

It is my center so no apologies for representing it; but I certainly
do not begrudge Europeans their nostalgia. Tnx to Christian for
producing and availablizing it. I continue to be bemused by Europeans`
thirst for rock back then, while there was plenty of great classical
music on radio; in North America, rock everywhere and classical a
small minority to be sought out, still today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Aug 8 at 1627, tnx to reminder from Dan
Robinson, LRA-36 is also on today Sunday, S4-S6 into Brasil SDR, usual
music, brief talx, frequent IDs still past 1732. And 1827 item about a
meteo observatory in Cordoba; 1855 Antarctica song, 1858 opening Wed
show `El Lejano Sur` once again, still past 1917.

So appears to be active every day now for extended hour, starting
circa 1400, past 19 or 20 UT recently (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Steve McDonald, VE7SL replies: ``Most large commercial jets
are equipped with RNAV capability l which can be used in conjunction
with ground-based nav facilities (VORs and DMEs) to navigate
accurately but that’s not the case for the smaller stuff.``

Martin Potter, Ont., replies on the ODXA iog:
``Concerning your item about NavCanada decommissioning LW/MW beacons,
your correspondent Walt Salmaniw makes a very good point. It seems to
me that NavCanada, with their emphasis and reliance on GPS satellites,
is creating an "all our eggs are in one basket" kind of situation.
There will be no redundancy, other than more satellites.

An item just this morning on Slashdot.org
https://news.slashdot.org/story/21/08/07/0212200/cnn-explores-how-space-force-is-defending-america
makes the point that a military war in space, while not likely for the
foreseeable future, is not exactly *unlikely* either.

All an aggressor has to do it detonate a few nuclear devices *above*
the ionosphere and the global positioning satellite system would be
toast instantly. Will NavCanada immediately turn on the beacons again
to save all the aircraft in the air at that time?

Then there are natural events. A very unusually strong solar flare
might adversely affect many of the GPS satellites on the sunlit side
of the earth at the time of the flare. I know the satellites are
hardened against expected solar events of that nature, but hardening
has its limits and I am sure the GPS designers had a practical upper
limit on what they could do and did do. Unfortunately, Nature has a
way of surprising us in unexpected ways and at unexpected times.

Maybe NavCanada is a bit short-sighted and perhaps too trusting of
both technology and the present "peaceful world". 73, ... Martin
VE3OAT``

Yes, but would an aggressor really want to eliminate its own GPS
access at the same time? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1390, Sun Aug 8 at 0625 UT, my strongest local, KCRC, is
again in dead air; but too late at bedtime to try for any DX
under/thru it. Say, other stations which do this should have a default
set up of continuous IDs and other DX test noises. Or turn off the
transmitter: obviously, broadcasting dead air accomplishes nothing
except keeping the electricity bill humming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO monitoring: last week, UT Sunday
August 1, Hansjoerg Biener in Germany was hearing WOR on WRMI 5950
before 0100. It`s not on the skedgrid, as that half hour is not
accounted for on System L. Other days of week there may be 1-hour
programs from 0000, but on Sundays at 0000 it`s Wavescan which is only
one semihour. So we are sure to check for WOR 168 hours later, UT
Sunday August 8 at 0030 on 5950: YES, it`s on, but from 3+ years ago!
#1935 recorded June 19 [2018!]. S9+10/20 via Knoxville SDR.

Unlike a lot of time-sensitive weekly shows, we always give the
produxion date right at the beginning, saving listeners from trying to
figure it out or wasting their time on a rerun. The # if not the date
is also always given at the mid-break and the very end. Apparently
this was an orphan file in System L --- no telling how long it`s been
showing up at odd times with long-out-of-date info. I`ve asked Jeff if
he could arrange it so the latest WOR appear in this slot.

Current WOR 2098 confirmed UT Sunday August 8 from 0330 on WA0RCR,
1860-AM, Wentzville MO, good via nearby Warrenton SDR but with heavy
storm noise no closer than WI/NE/KS, none in MO/IL. Next for #2098!

2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary
support: no new contributions this week which might have been via
PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank
to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7570, Aug 8 at 0044, WRMI is back here very strong after
absence last night; and 7780 is weakened again, so evidently back to
`normal` configuration, antenna NW on 7570, NE on 7780 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Aug 8 at 0040, WTWW-2 webcast of `TOUTA` in
stereo finishing at 0052, back to rock, so missed most of it starting
early circa 0021. Bob Heil says next week he may fire up his own
thorgan besides playing recordings of others (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, Aug 8 at 1506, the usually silent WTWW-1 daytime
frequency is on since it`s Sunday morning, with PPPP; the SSOB of
S9+30 vs WWCR 9980 at only S9+20 and hardly anything else on band
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
