Logs
** ALGERIA [non]. 11985 & 12060, Sept 21 at 1907, still no signals
from scheduled TDA relays via FRANCE, checking SDRs in Africa and
Maryland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 21 at 2204, R. Cairo is on today, S9+25 into
UTwente, but extremely distorted modulation, useless. This protracted
incompetence at National Media Authority is really remarkable.
Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1600, Sept 21 at 2120 UT, looking for some tolerable AM
band music to nap by, I try KUSH in Cushing, but there`s a talk show
instead! Seems to be MOR, not Biden-bashing like everything else in
OK. 2129 still ID as ``Oklahoma`s Americana Station`` and 2130 back to
Bloomberg Radio, ``Sound Off`` show, giving its frequencies in some
major markets, 99.1, 1130, 106.1, 960, and Sirius XM 119, but no
mention of 1600 or KUSH! NRC DX News of August 30 reported:

``KUSH OK Cushing — Format to C&W (ex-C&W/OLD) (StIntel)`` -- The
`OLD` was ``Americana``, a rather rare format which made KUSH worth
some listening. New NRC AM Log showed slogan ``Oklahoma`s Americana
Station``. U1 5000/70 watts, psra 500. Radio-locator says ``Oklahoma`s
Only Americana Station``, day coverage map finds OKC, Tulsa and Enid
all between its ``distant`` and ``fringe`` contours, but I doubt it
have much of an audience in our three metros.

https://www.1600kush.com/ --- take your pick of slogans and formats,
including Bloomberg Radio. Like far too many radio stations, there
seems to be no plain old program schedule showing what`s on air, when,
hour by hour (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.002+, Sept 21 at 2202, VOT English at S9+45 but just
barely modulated: I have to run UTwente volume at max, a risk if
tuning to anything else, and also local volume at max, just to hear it
at ``normal`` level. 2215 `Review of the Tuerkiyeish Press`; 2344
`Feeling Supreme` repeat about natural remedies for diabetic/insulin
problems. Does not go off circa 2255, but IS, 2300 TS and opening
extra German airing while the sleepyops doze. News, 2314 song; 2334
multi-lingual ID reel, still going past 2344 song. By now mod level
better, can back off a bit, but still under-. 2347 `DYKT` theme and
German version, something about a tower.

Double bonus! Stays on after German too with IS and 2356
Luso-Portuguese IDs, UT Sept 22 *0000 sign-on for another broadcast
not supposed to be on SW at all. I quickly notify the radioescutas io
group that brasileiros are in luck tonight! Sign-on only heard giving
satellite parameters. Too busy to listen closely but usual mix of talk
features and Turkish music, still 0043; 0053 IS and finally cut off
the air as if this were an intentional emission. Bet it won`t be on
tomorrow, but sporadically (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: Correxion: this
was Tuesday September 20, not Wed 21 as originally misstated:

Confirmed Tuesday Sept 20 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9/+15 into Maryland
SDR, with occasional storm crashes.

Also confirmed Wednesday September 21 at 2100:20 on WBCQ 7490 minus 70
Hz = 7489.930, S9+10 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thursday September 22 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+30
into Virginia SDR. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

NEW WOR 2157 should be ready for download early UT Friday September
23, first SWBCs at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330.15v, Sept 21 at 2119, WLCR/WBCQ is OFF also at this
daypart; still scheduled to be aiming English right at me. Ivo Ivanov
thinx it`s only a 50 kW transmitter, not 500, but how does he know?
The last we heard it was the SuperStition 500, off-frequency because
it had to be run by an old substitute driver (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [and non]. 13815, Sept 21 at 1817, NO signal from TDA via
FRANCE as scheduled this hour, into African and Maryland SDRs. Ivo
Ivanov, Bulgaria, who monitors a lot of TDA/RTA, found the Issoudun,
FRANCE relays on 6050, 7295, 9535 between 04 and 06 UT Sept 21, also
missing, but own site Béchar on air, 7200, 9450, but not Ouargla
either. I often run across 9620 in my 06-07 UT monitoring but don`t
log it. Inside-Algeria usage is very hit-and-miss, but presumably the
France relays are soon to stop, if not already. See

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wednesday September 21, a good thing I
tune in Argentine SDR early, for at 1431, LRA36 is already on with
rockmusic, peaking S7. Gary Pence says they started at 1428. 1436
official sign-on, 4-language advisory, staff names; 1438 Esperanza
themesong; 1441 poetic recitation; 1443 song about primavera: they are
already celebrating spring tho no equinox really until UT Sept 23 at
0103, or 0104 depending on which reference. 1447 ``su compañía`` ID
and into live YL chat, on 22nd program of the 2022 cycle; a ``día muy
especial``. Guests in studio, chicos from the secondary school; 1450
male voice gets to read history of base; weather hard to copy, but
maybe minus 5 and winds 55 kph; 1453 phone numbers and all the other
contact info; acknowledges someone from Jujuy and callers on the air;
1455.5 music under up to full; 1501 student talking about history;
lots more chat I don`t try to copy, 1525 song; 1545 primavera song;
1604 ID with staff names again, ``nos une`` and off. But 1606 back on
for a few seconds of song, off again and no more by 1631 when the SDR
times out again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 248 kHz MCW, Sept 21 at 0624 UT, dash and WG, 1000 watt ND
beacon at Winnipeg MB. Audible despite storm noise from Kansas, and
little else. Will certainly miss WG when decommissioned April 20,
2023, per August CIDX Messenger; however not flagged as such in
dxinfocentre.com beacon list (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Sept 21 at 0610, RHC English S9+30/40 direct, // only
5040 S9+20; all others off already: 6100, 6060, 6000, as well as 5025
Rebelde. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``Economy --- Investing in Cuba: Certain Suicide --- What is behind
the announcements that private investment on the island will be
allowed? Emilio Morales, Miami 20 Sep 2022 - 17:42 CEST

In a desperate attempt to survive the multisystemic crisis that is
about to topple it, the Cuban regime has taken a series of steps that,
rather than a strategy, seem like acrobatics. Its new plan does not
include the first thing that should be implemented in the economic
sphere: a series of reforms, based on free enterprise and free
markets, to restructure the model.

Yes, the regime has announced that it will allow investments in the
private sector, and so has the Biden Administration, as part of its
policy to empower the Cuban people by allowing investments by American
companies together with private companies on the Island. However, it
is naïve to think that there is a real private sector in Cuba...``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 21 at 0606, VON is OFF. Something`s always
abnormal at Abuja.

7254.93v, Sept 21 at 1732 and still 1811, Alicante, Spain SDR gets a
signal here at VON`s offset, but no modulation. Canary, Spain, SDR is
unavailable as its ham must be transmitting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring:

Confirmed Wednesday Sept 21 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9/+15 into Maryland

NEW WOR 2157 should be ready for download early UT Friday September
23, first SWBCs at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Sept 21 at 0608, WRMI is ON with TOMBS, S9+20 // 5850
but 5950 is off. 5800 had been cut back until 0400* but last night was
heard after 0600 with dead air. Maybe something to do with cash flow
from TOMBS? Skedgrid still dated Sept 9 still shows it only until
0400* with otherstuff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Sept 21 at 0609, WEWN Spanish still OFF (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Sept 21 at 0612, WWCR S9+30 of dead air with some hum.
There they go again. Since 3215 & 5890 are off overnight weekdays,
leaves only 5935 on air and modulating, with DGS, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 21 at 0617+,
first time in months such a panoply this late due to latening Euro
sunrises: checked 1044 first and there it is, far too late for
Ethiopia as I recently hypothesized circa 0300.

But this is still too early for any TPs beyond 846, and unusually,
Kiritimati is missing even tho it`s Wednesday, not Sunday. Gary Pence
agrees, Sept 21: ``846 kHz no show --- sure enough, I tried checking
early and thru the nite but it was a no show. NH6XO [SDR Hawaii] is a
great place to check since Kiritimati is 1353 miles almost due south,
where his antenna is north/south 220 ft unterminated Beverage. 73s and
good luck this morning, Gary``

In total, not in the order tuned; (2) indicates at least two carriers
beating; (3) at least three: 531, 558, 621, 639, 684, 693-, 729(2),
774(3), 847, 855(2), 1044, 1098(2), 1107, 1116, 1305; 1710 = NAm
pirate? Method is 9 kHz steps in USB at 1 kHz below the channels.

These are likely from Spain/Algeria/Morocco; even when some of the
Spaniards are lower powered than biggies insolated further east. 693
is perceptibly low, judging from pitch tuned to 692 USB. MWOffsets
shows the only one fitting, as of 8 years ago! ``692.9921 RNE Radio
Nacional (Tortosa/Santa Bárbara) 24h 2014-08-23`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

Logs
** CUBA. 6100, Sept 20 at 0632, RHC English at S9+10/20 of just barely
modulation; 6165, 6000 and 5040 are off, leaving only 6060 with a
sufficient S9/+10 signal yet undermodulated with hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 20 at 2152, R. Cairo manages to get on air,
but S9+25/35 into UTwente of hum and extreme distortion in presumed
English. Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 20 at 0630, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati.
Gary Pence, TX, has also been checking this via remote:

``Hi Glenn, I was using SDR NH6XO, Kaneohe, Hawaii when I caught them
in their local sunset enhancement, better waterfall with visible audio
besides the usual JBA carrier then it took a deeper fade that seems to
be common that I have run across in my MW DXing. I Recorded a little
and no side splatter directly on the sides, around 0428z Sept 20,
2022. Every time I have checked 846, a thin line showed up on the
Kiwi, so to my amazement I was surprised to see some modulation in the
waterfall and could hear it a little better. After about 10 minutes,
the big fade hit. To really explore this sunset enhancement, I need to
start listening just before sunset around 0345z or sooner until their
sunset around 0428z. I read a story how somebody in Hawaii had
armchair copy from across the room back in the day. CuL, Gary`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 20 at 0631, VON on with S9/+10 of dead air.
Well, that`s something, awkward at Abuja. Did not get to check their
evening today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 15375, Sept 20 at 1454, S8/S9 of heavy rock vocal music,
Turkish talk and more music past 1500, one of better signals on band,
so I bet it`s VOT: yes, 13-16, 500 kW at 310 degrees toward W Europe
and here are we beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Sept 20 at 2154, VOT already on in Tuerkiyeish
talk not scheduled now, S9+45 into UTwente, 2155 IS starts with
Engliyeish IDs, but suptorted and with loud hum, 2220 commentary about
QE2 by someone with an Engliyeish name. Suspect same transmitter as
for Tuerkiyeish at 16-21 on same parameters 500 kW at 310 degrees
USward. Wonder if it stayed on after 2100. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
September 20 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR, already
vs considerable pulse jamming but listenable past 2250 if you put up
with it. Likewise for R. Libertad after 2300, but maybe harsher
dentro-Cuba. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
1100 UT Wednesday Unique Radio webcast [5035/3210 USB suspended]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Or via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Sept 20 at 0640, S7/S9 of dead air, must be WRMI, but
#10 is now scheduled to quit 5800 at 0400, while #4 is also labeled
5800 but 24/7 of blank. Running 100 kW units after hours must be bad
for the power bill, or maybe there is some reason for testing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 20 circa 0630 quick check for R. Vanuatu still
finds nothing: need to be more persistent like Ron Howard, same
date:

``Strange happenings! On 7932, happen to hear Radio Vanuatu for maybe
10-15 seconds before cutting off at about 0522 UT. Seemed they were
maybe working on repairing the xmtr without attempting to correct the
situation of being off frequency? Went to randomly check 8620+, after
0559 UT; yes, at about 0653 they came on with Island music for maybe
another 10-15 seconds; checked after 0653 for a straight hour, but
they never came back at all. Today heard for probably less than 30
seconds! Ron, Asilomar State Beach, Calif. (near Monterey), Etón E1,
external antenna: 100 ft. long wire`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
