Logs
** CUBA. 7350, May 5 at 1347, RHC still here but poor, ex-7340 where
there is algo, presumably NK clandestine from Tajikistan; but QSY may
be more to avoid own jamming and Radio Martí, very strong on 7335.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, May 5 at 1354, RHC is S9+10 but suptorted, unusual for
this legacy frequency; wiggle that patchcord!

13740, May 5 at 1358, S9 and suptorted even worse. Somethings always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13490, 13559, 13630; 13771, 13841, 13910, 13981 approx., May
5 at 1355, spurblob panoply at 70-71 kHz intervals out of RHC
13700-AM. Best audible in FM mode, always with F# tone above Cmiddle.
13559 and 13770 are VG S9, the outermost ones JBA. But at 1400 all go
silent as modulation stops; after breakfast of pineapple, next check
at 1432 they are all back. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, May 5 at 1518, CRI English relay is back on, after at
least two days` missing. Something`s not wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7457-USB, May 5 at 1345, MARS net 4TX2, presumably referring
to Texas, NCS AFA4VO calling for contacts and one comes from AFA4WP
with relays, both fonetik.

Much more detailed logs of this frequency including AFA4VO:
https://www.w4uvh.net/dxld8031.txt
from 12+ years ago, and briefly 3- years ago:
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1735.txt
Google searching on AFA4VO it`s amazing how many non-MARS false hits,
like license plates, stuff in Chinese, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2032 monitoring: confirmed Monday
May 4 from 1800:40 on IRRS 7290-Romania? via UTwente.

Strong carrier came on at *1756 diminishing but not eliminating splash
from 7280 & 7300; 1759 cut on modulation talking about crisis, RNA;
soon cut that off for canned IRRS sign-on again advising, wrongly,
that this is on compatible reduced-carrier USB, best tuned in that
mode! NOT, never by this site, just full carrier AM/DSB, but probably
was long ago when really out of Milano. 1800 three FSN headlines, then
into WOR. Despite no ACI from 7295 & 7285, even with narrow bandwidth,
7290 still suffers some kind of QRM, apparently splash from SSS -
stilted Spanish from 7280 Vietnam. And 7300 German is also strong from
Iran until 1820. 1830 longer FSN stories from Washngton, into Dan
Roberts` `Shortwave Report`; again his final brief item is from
Sputnik about dying Capitalism, but not brief enough, not to be
chopped off in time for 1859 IRRS sign-off.

WOR 2032 also confirmed UT Tue May 5 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9+10 but
noisy here from heavy storms in SE OK. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

sent a US$ cheque to

funds, to woradio at yahoo.com

Just noticed May 5 on the WRMI skedgrid an additional time for WOR on
WRMI, finally back on the air Saturday night: UT Sunday 0300 on 5800
(and follows revived Radio Tirana at 0230 UT Sun & Mon); to be
confirmed. 5800 is WRMI-10 at 160 degrees, same as WRMI-3 on 9955, but
5800 is always good here, never MUFed out nor jammed like 9955 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. What`s on WRMI, UT Tue May 5 at 0112+:
5010 // 5850, Alameda Bible Fellowship Robotnik
5800, RTI in Spanish
9395, RAE in English, S9+10/20
9455, Hal Turner insanity, S9+10/30

This is another anomaly example: 9395 & 9455 are supposed to be on
exactly the same antenna azimuth 355 degrees, and 100 kW power, only
60 kHz apart so propagation identical. Yet, 9455 is noticeably
stronger.

As for Turner, Dr Hansjoerg Biener comments on my previous log:

``I was there too, but earlier. You should have heard what Hal Turner
had to say in defence of President Trump's disinfectant injection
ideas or rather his insulting politicians and anyone else who was not
really understanding what the President said. When I first saw the
press conference excerpt I was shocked that nobody of the medical
experts stood up against it immediately. In Germany, remarks like
these add to the view of a dysfunctional presidency and to fears that
this will carry on for another term. I was rebuked on this group for
getting off topic, but in my humble opinion the short wave listening
hobby is not only about logging and verifying rare stations, measuring
off frequencies or noting irregularities, but mainly and mostly about
learning about cultural differences and reflecting about what you hear
(Dr Hansjoerg Biener 1 May 2020)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ALGERIA [non]. 9655, May 3 at 2036, RTA with Qur`an is beep-jammed
here, but not on // 9510, as heard via UTwente.

5940, May 3 at 2101, RTA is beep-jammed here but not on // 5930, via
UTwente. BTW, the ToH ID is not only in Arabic but also French, and
English, ``Qur`an Radio, Algeria``.

It appears the jamentity has only one transmitter so RTA is clear when
running two frequencies, not always, but especially prime-time.

Wolfgang Bueschel says this has been going on for the past five years
in the Sahel zone. In that case, someone might have DFed the source by
now, but it`s never too late. However it may be difficult to separate
perpetrator from victim. Could be the jamming start/end a few seconds
apart from the Issoudun QSY times.

But later comes this reply from Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``This is not
jamming; this is the typical one of two different types of tweet of
two transmitters via Issoudun. Only one type is used here for TDA. Two
different types was heard for Radio France International in French
0700-0800 UT on 13695 & 15300. -- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

Well! I simply could not imagine TDF/MBR could be so defective, doing
this to itself, especially for 5 years?! Ivo does not say how this was
determined, but I suggest: monitor whether the beepery start/stop at
exactly the same time the ISS transmitter go on and off. Something`s
always incredible at Issoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 11880, May 4 at 1438, no signal from CRI relay via
CUBA, supposed to be English at 1400-1600. Nor on ex-15700 nor
anywhere else in the 7-17 MHz bands during routine bandscans.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Wolfgang Bueschel also reported
this missing yesterday:

``RHC in A-20 - after 32 days monitoring, and a lot of frequency
change IRRITATIONS by Radio CUBA
1400-1500 11880 QVC 250 305 WeNoAM English
1500-1600 11880 QVC 250 305 WeNoAM English
n o t on air today May 3. 73 wb``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, May 3 at 2127, this RHC is on today but no spurs;
however a bit distorted. One wonders if they swap around different
transmitter units. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 7380, May 3 at 2314, RHC English in `DXers Unlimited` instead
of 11880. Maybe Arnie saw wolfie`s comment that 11880 was too high to
propagate that late into alleged target Africa. So is this not wrong?

9340, BTW, has not been heard again one single time since I caught RHC
Spanish there, May 1 at 0020 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13430, 13496, 13562, 13632; 13770, 13840, 13910, 13981,
14040-14068 approx., May 4 at 1350, FM/AM spurblobs out of RHC
13700-AM at 66-71 kHz intervals, in FM mode all with F# tone, the
fringe ones only that as a giveaway. 13562 at S6-S9, and
well-modulated if tuned in FM. The uppermost is very weak and diffuse
INTRUDING inside the 20m hamband, clued only by the tone. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1-WBFM, Sunday May 3 as usual starting a bit late
after 2000 UT, KUCO-FM with `Wind & Rhythm`, an excellent program of
band music, but not exclusively. A few weeks ago the entire hour was
devoted to Carl Orff`s ``Carmina Burana``, one of my great favorites,
to which I sing along if no one can hear me. Lyrix can be found here:
http://www.classical.net/music/comp.lst/works/orff-cb/carmlyr.php
I can handle the Latin a lot better than the Low-German.

This made it quite obvious that a number of sexions were skipped to
fit it into one hour, so I requested that on a future show they play
the rest. The first half this week, #570, did exactly that for ``Glenn
in Enid``. W&R has a huge archive of shows on demand, and this one
should be added soon. The first show from 14 months ago, which I heard
on a more recent repeat, was this:
http://www.windandrhythm.com/episodes/episode-516-carmina-burana
The player shows less than 30 minutes, but you get to the second half
by clicking on the forward arrows (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615.065, May 4 at 1347, JBA carrier is the OSOB and
therefore also the SSOB, signature always off-frequency plus. Tnx to
Allah for SRI/SBC, without which we would have no evidence of any
propagation on this band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2032 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday May 4 at 0130 & 0230 on WRMI 7780, good via Rochester.

Also confirmed UT Mon May 4 from 0300.5 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5130, good
via Rochester SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon May 4 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair with jamming at
Rochester, but good with no jamming at Bogotá. Next:

1800vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW, 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 15770, May 4 circa 1400, WRMI much stronger than usual and
so is 15825 WWCR --- both getting sporadic E boost. Checking DXMAP
later, there are lots of Es patches over eastern USA, at 1622 MUF
hitting 91 MHz over western TN/KY, so FM DX is in prospect (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Sunday May 3 at 2126, I can tell that WJHR gospel
huxter is on, JBA; usually no signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALASKA. 9580, May 3 at 1413, gospel music, poor, still at 1455, and
nothing on 9695; so KNLS is back on proper frequency after jump to
9695 yesterday. 1459 to dead ait and off.

9730, May 3 at *1459.7, KNLS-2 cuts on after retune from 9580, 1500 IS
and opening Russian, also back on proper frequency instead of 9695
yesterday.

9695 was legitimately on at 0800-1000, so I bet TX-2 was stuck there
also for the intervening transmissions, from own sked:

1000 9580 270 ENG Pac. Rim
1100 9580 300 RUS E. Rus
1200 7355 270 ENG Pac. Rim
1300 7395 300 CHN N. China
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [non]. 6050, May 3 at 0439, beep jamming against Qur`an
service from RTA/TDA as always transmitted via Issoudun, FRANCE. Same
QRM as heard against 7295 in the following hour. Altho rather
ineffective here, certainly no accident and may be more annoying in
African outback target areas.

7295, May 3 at 0545, RTA again with beep jamming here during Arabic
talk rather than Qur`an at the moment, maybe sermon.

Here`s the full A20 sked, to be checked for more beepery. It implies
all Arabic broadcasts are nothing but HQ, really?

Much more user-friendly than HFCC:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A20&broadc=TDA

where real ISS broadcasts are mixed in with countless IMAGINARY ones
from two Algerian SWBC sites which have been under construxion(?) for
many years, yet keeps registering skeds, to stake out territory and
discourage other broadcasters who may be fooled.

Now, to speculate on who could be jamming this? Maybe a Ramadan thing,
due to warring Islamic sects. First Google search turns up this:
``Religion in Algeria is dominated by Muslims with over ninety-nine
percent of the population adhering to Sunni Islam of the Maliki school
of jurisprudence. The remainder include Christians, Jews, Ahmadi, Shia
Muslims, and Ibadi Muslims.``

So obvious prime suspects are Shia who consider Sunni infidels. Since
this mainly affects Qur`an recitations, is there a marked sectional
difference in the method or content of these; or at that level should
they be considered identically pan-Islamic? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7335, 7355, 7365, 7435, 9565, May 3 at 0547, residual pulse
jamming on abandoned Radio Martí frequencies --- or never on the air
at this hour, anyway. But still wall-of-noise heavy jamming on 5980
and 6030, also vacant of RM. Think how many undernourished Cubans
could be well-fed for the expense of this more-than-useless jamming.
Viva Fidel! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13567, 13633, 13766 approx., May 3 at 1315, spurblobs out of
13700-AM, hardly any program audio audible, at 66-67 kHz intervals.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, May 3 at 1601, RHC opening Esperanto, // 15140
distorted, back at proper Sunday time after missing at least the past
two weeks when continued in Spanish. Preceded by Spanish frequency
announcement at 1600 for 11760 (? I thought he said 11860), 15140
until 1800, and FMs. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Re: ``6933-USB, May 3 at 0033, JBA rock music here,
but good at Maine SDR, seems originally live concert with crowd
applause. Some unreadable announcements. Many logs here say it`s KINK
Radio, apparently playing only music by a such-named band.
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,66482.0.html
0042 stops, but soon resumes on 6935-AM, apparently same station``

Went off at 0046* (Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 11895.022, May 3 at 0550, off-frequency
Chinese talking about Mei-guo and Chung-guo, immediately bringing to
mind NMI site with such characteristix --- yes, RFA Chinese via SAIPAN
now scheduled. But no sign of jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. Correcting typo in start time of tourist show: 2219.5, not
2229.5; fixed:

9830, May 2 at 2210, VOT English is on the air today, but mostly
Turkish fill music, VG via UTwente but with some hum --- not positive
whether it be transmitted thus. But from 2219.5 to 2228, it`s an
evergreen `Turkey`s Tourist Attraxions`, all about the crossroads
of Istanbul. Rest is mostly music, occasional TRT/VOT promos ``with
you 24 hours`` --- really? and 2238 COVID-19 PSA about how to fight
it; 2253 sign-off claiming it`s the 1230 broadcast on 15450, IS, 2256
restart IS with German IDs inserted but this time cut off at 2258.5*
before can start that phantom service. Something`s always awry at
Ankara, erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2032 monitoring: tuned in just in

0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE

domestic. Not in Aoki/NDXC but in EiBi as WHRI-1, Sundays only at
13-14, English to Central America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1680, May 3 at 1247 UT, KRJO Monroe LA plugging offer of 100
commercials for $ 500 on any of six stations, contact 318 AC phone
number; back to C&W music. What a deal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9337.0, May 3 at 1256, S3-S5 open carrier, still at
1302. Thought it might be typical split frequency of Voice of Tibet
via Tajikistan. Ivo said the 1230-1300 portion was deleted:

** ALASKA. 9695, May 2 at 1406, something new with gospel rock, S6-S2
but well modulated, best signal on band except for WRMIs and WBCQ.
Likely either RBA or WCB, but quickly ID in passing as ``Your New Life
Station``, so KNLS, which besides, is gone from 9580 where we had been
hearing this English hour. Why change? No CCI or ACI to 9580 during
this hour nor shown in Aoki/NDXC.

1450, still going on 9695 with gospel music, and then capsule about
archaeology, no doubt biblical and anti-science. A bit more music with
no sign-off but dead air at 1459, keeps running and 1500 opens
Russian, which I guess is also a replacement for 9730 where I just
heard it a few days ago, but unrechecked now.

Is 9695 now on the ``latest broadcasting schedule``? Of course not!
https://www.worldchristian.org/welcome/who-we-are/how-to-listen/

Guess what: Sa`udi in Pashto is already scheduled on 9695 at 14-16,
but no sign of it here, maybe imaginary. Guess what (2)? KNLS is
scheduled on 9695 at 08-10 in English & Russian, so now I suspect 9695
be a one(?)-off mistake, failing to change to 9580/9730 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, May 2 at 0521, RTA Qur`an via FRANCE again has
rapid-beep jamming, tone or carriers less than 1 kHz from each side;
approx. 10 X per second. A few recent chex lacked them, so not always
applied. Who would want to jam this? Could it be something else, like
spurs out of Cuban jamming nearby against no Martí?

7365 over 7335 does not compute, as that would land on 7305, 30 kHz
away. However, 7435 over 7365 would fit, 70 kHz away. But these beeps
do not match the mix of sounds heard on the Cuban jammers, nor their
rate, and besides, would not explain why other RTA frequencies are
also reported jammed. Maybe coincidental (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7335, 7365, 7405, 7435, May 2 at 0521, Cuban jamming of
various levels still running here against Radio Martí frequencies, the
active ones of which, 7335 and 7435, have just been turned off for
good at 0400* per budget cuts, as monitored by Stephen Luce, Houston
TX. We expect the DentroCuban jamming command will not swiftly turn
off too, as they have kept jamming many other previous RM channels.
However, Stephen Luce follows up:

``At a later 0530 check May 2 the Cuban jamming was still going on
6030; however nothing on 7335 and 7435.``

Steve McGreevy suggests: ``A few things come to mind why Cuba keeps-on
their jamming (possibly):

1) Unaware of the Marti outage thus keeping them going;
2) They know BUT afraid to switch off the jammers and have Marti take
advantage and switch back on in the clear...
3) The Cubans have more jamming budget under their system to blare

** CUBA. 13436, 13501, 13568, 13634; 13766, 13833, 13900, May 2 at
1411-1415, extremely distorted FM/AM spurblobs at approx. 66-kHz
intervals out of 13700-AM, the outer ones JBA except for S7-S9 13900
which I hit first downtuning; in some cases a trace of the F# tone the
only clue. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13545, 13610, 13675; 13805, 13870, 13935, 13999 approx., May
2 at 2116, now it`s the 13740-AM frequency carrying the
spur-blob-producing transmitter we have previously caught on 15370,
and many mornings including today on 13700. Now these are about 65-kHz
intervals, declining from strong S4-S6 at the first order out to JBA
on the outskirts, at least with the signature F# tone. 13870 also
conflicts with the RTTY normally on there. This of course can only
happen when fundamental 13740 be on the air in the tardes, extremely
irregular. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA [and non]. Dawn Chorus birdsongs started at 0015 May 3:

Tnx to Jose Jacob for the link (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 3 at 0027, The Mighty Farty KBC
on reactivated May-Aug frequency via Nauen, GERMANY, rock music, what
else? Fair signal to UTwente SDR, maybe a bit too close. But JBA here
in OK! at 0034 check; at a Maine SDR, good signal that far anyway. At
UTwente, ex-5960 is now open for Chinese. Perhaps 7 MHz band would
have been a good compromise for broader North American coverage (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, May 3 at 0033, JBA rock music here, but
good at Maine SDR, seems originally live concert with crowd applause.
Some unreadable announcements. Many logs here say it`s KINK Radio,
apparently playing only music by a such-named band.
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,66482.0.html
0042 stops, but soon resumes on 6935-AM, apparently same station
(Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1-WBFM, May 2 at 2015 UT, KUCO-FM Edmond/OKC with this
Saturday`s opera already over, the anonymous fill-music show is
playing something very interesting; I really perk up when I hear a
well-known humaly in the voice of Carl Sagan. It ends at 2035 when
Lane Whitesell IDs this as Carolyn Shaw`s ``The Listeners``.

We never know exactly when the good stuff will start once the Met be
over. Unfortunately, KUCO provides no playlist on weekends even for
its original programming, so I search about it later. ``The
Listeners`` premiered last fall in California:

https://philharmonia.org/2019-2020-season/a-cosmic-notion/

So far I don`t find any linx to recordings of it which one of these
says is about 30 minutes long. But KUCO got it.

Some more vocal music on KUCO, and listening on $ tereo headphones, I
can tell that Lane is voice-tracked, as there are breaks in the
background noise level during his announcements. With another hour to
fill, after ToH IDs at 2100 it drops to dead air for a minute, then
defaults to non-vocal music, really strange stuff, harpsichord and
violin hitting some really sour notes; like a parody? When I recheck
at 2110, Kimberly Powell is apparently live, apologizing for
disruption in regular programming, and playing a properly tuned piano
quintet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 2 at 2210, VOT English is on the air today, but
mostly Turkish fill music, VG via UTwente but with some hum --- not
positive whether it be transmitted thus. But from 2229.5 to 2228, it`s
an evergreen `Turkey`s Tourist Attraxions`, all about the crossroads
of Istanbul. Rest is mostly music, occasional TRT/VOT promos ``with
you 24 hours`` --- really? and 2238 COVID-19 PSA about how to fight
it; 2253 sign-off claiming it`s the 1230 broadcast on 15450, IS, 2256
restart IS with German IDs inserted but this time cut off at 2258.5*
before can start that phantom service. Something`s always awry at
Ankara, erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2032 monitoring: did anyone hear
the Sat May 2 at 1130 on WRMI 9955 while I snoozed, and how was the
jamming?

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, catches the next one:

** ALASKA. 9695, May 2 at 1406, something new with gospel rock, S6-S2
but well modulated, best signal on band except for WRMIs and WBCQ.
Likely either RBA or WCB, but quickly ID in passing as ``Your New Life
Station``, so KNLS, which besides, is gone from 9580 where we had been
hearing this English hour. Why change? No CCI or ACI to 9580 during
this hour nor shown in Aoki/NDXC.

Nothing though on 9696 on May 3 at 14.20 UT,
b u t
9580 KNLS ALS powerful S=9+10 or -61dBm signal in Edmonton Alberta remote
SDR rx.

Modern program towards youth, not right religious matter.
10 kHz wideband audio, nice modulation.
and

7355 kHz Mandarin Chinese too on air from Anchor Point, 14.25 UT,
S=9+25dB or -62dBm strength into Alberta Canada remote RX installation.



Sa'udi in Pashto is already scheduled on 9695 at 14-16 ...

SAUDI ARABIA 9695even kHz, R Saudi International Riyadh in Pashto,
at 14.35 UT May 3, prayer sermon program, in remote Delhi SDR rx
location S=9+25dB or -48dBm strength in India.


But according my observation - since some weeks now last -
there is un-clean audio feed to mention from studio to the antenna,
a lot of short audio breaks happen, like loose metal connection
on that 55 degrees azimuth 500 kW curtain antenna dipols
or on their feeder line. 73 wb


1450, still going on 9695 with gospel music, and then capsule about
archaeology, no doubt biblical and anti-science. A bit more music with
no sign-off but dead air at 1459, keeps running and 1500 opens
Russian, which I guess is also a replacement for 9730 where I just
heard it a few days ago, but unrechecked now.

Is 9695 now on the ``latest broadcasting schedule``? Of course not!
https://www.worldchristian.org/welcome/who-we-are/how-to-listen/

Guess what: Sa'udi in Pashto is already scheduled on 9695 at 14-16,
but no sign of it here, maybe imaginary. Guess what (2)? KNLS is
scheduled on 9695 at 08-10 in English & Russian, so now I suspect 9695
be a one(?)-off mistake, failing to change to 9580/9730 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)
