Logs
** CANADA. 18134-USB, Feb 21 at 1842, VA7VOC ID as ``Voice of
Canada``, i.e. not RCI. Lots of bio and photos at:

VA7VOC Canada flag Canada
Rob Hatch, West Kelowna, British Columbia Canada
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/va7voc'
I get a few daytime intracontinental sigs on 18 MHz, but seldom any
extras- (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 21 at 0147, RHC with S9+10/20 of dead air yet
again. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Feb 21 at 0155, S9+10/20 of suptorted music on RHC
English service. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6180, Feb 21 at 0156, S9+10 of dead air except for occasional
modulation peaks trying to break thru, during CRI relay. Wiggle that
patchcord! Cannot hear any RNA Brasil if it be underneath. 6180
recheck at 0244 via Bonaire SDR, now there is soft undermodulated
Chinese at S9/+10, still no RNA. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba. After 0300, MWV Madagascar takes over 6180 and CRI/Cuba
moves to 5910 where the same defect usually continue, but not checked
tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ECUADOR. 6050, UT Sun Feb 21 at 0247, surprisingly strong S9+10
from HCJB`s residual into Bonaire SDR, as to here it`s normally JBA.
Also surprising is a praise song in English; but 0255 Spanish
announcement and praise song in Spanish, no break at ToH nor
timesignal. 0313 M&H chatting in Spanish. 0403 YL lexuring on the
Quichua saying their culture is machista - to mix genders - i.e.
hombres dominating mujeres. This is the extended weekend broadcast
past weekday close circa 0230*v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Feb 21 from *1600:05, Issoudun site, FRANCE,
cuts on slightly late, JIP the much-anticipated annual broadcast of
Radio Amrum/Öömrang from the Frisian Islands along the NW German
coast. 1601 switches to English sign-on, saying it`s the tenth such
broadcast, announcer named Gerhardt. 1603 back to German mixed with
shorebird sounds. WRTH 2021 page 476 says this all began in 2006y, so
this must be another old playback? NO, soon proceeds to review of
2020, or rather last 5 years beginning in 2016, alternating languages,
so maybe mixing old with new stuff.

I am listening first via a Rochester NY remote, where there`s a VG
signal as this is 500 kW aimed at NYC. At 1614 I check my own rx where
it`s S9+10/20. Unfortunately I cannot give this my undivided attention
since only bits are in English mixed with Frisian and High German; and
the same hour is occupied by my usual monitoring of `Reliable Sources`
on CNN and the `Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival` on KUCO-FM, notably
with Brahms` Clarinet Quintet in d, Op. 115.

At 1623 they are conversing about Radio Caroline; 1635 contact info in
German, interview mixing Englisch; 1655 plug a continuous webstream
available, I guess from Frisia, and sign-off already in English with
credits, then German, to dead air at 1658.4, finished before ISS can
chop them off incomplete.

A semihour before, I reminded the WOR iogroup that this were nigh, and
many others noted their observations. I assume Richard Langley or
someone will archive the entire hour for more convenient hoering.
Jorge Freitas, Brasil, recorded the last triminute:

``most probably - roger`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [and non]. 5980, Feb 21 at 0249, Spanish from LVRII is about
to close but QRM from something else about equal adding up to S9+10
into Bonaire SDR; also some residual pointless pulse jamming from
Cuba. 0251 into Iran IS. Else is other PJ = Punjabi from AWR via
AUSTRIA until 0300. If the collision be this bad in Bonaire, how much
worse in the Punjab? Evidently frequency management at TWR and IRIB,
at their own peril, are not paying attention to my monitoring, as I
reported the same several weeks ago. Of course, no R. Chaski, Perú at
this hour but Claudio Galaz, Chile, did report it in the morning
recently before and after 1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4045-USB, Feb 21 at 0145, pirate rockmusic, S8-S9;
0149 ``Wolverine Radio ---`` with the ``radio`` repeating multiply,
into SSTV, 0151 back to music. Many more logs here including several
captures of the SSTV, one pretty sharp; theme: ``lonely``
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78326.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

zonk, DS, which is 25-watt ND beacon at Searcy, Arkansas (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

instead of `Theatre Organ Under The Arch`, on WTWW-2 webcast, not

Logs
** CANADA. 266-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0722 UT, dash and XD, 32-watt NDB at
Edmonton, Alberta. 2257 km = 1403 miles, or 43.8 miles per watt.

I used to get occasionally high-power Edmonton CFRN-TV, NTSC analog
channel 3, always a treat so close to the sporadic-E single-hop max.
Sesquidecades ago I could not have imagined that years later, CFRN
would abandon analog and channel 3 for DTV on unskippable ch 12.
However, per http://www.w9wi.com/web/tv-states/AB.html
it does now have 12 relays/translators around the province from very
low to medium power, including one each on ch 2, 3, 4.

335-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0730 UT, dash and YLD, 1000-watt NDB at
Chapleau, Ontario. Fell asleep before reaching top of band. Lotsa sigs
but lightning crashes from storm front across central Gulf of Mexico
difficultized copy. A few more: USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Feb 20 at 0215 UT marine weather in French by
roboyl is VP S8-S9 about the same as noise level; haven`t had decent
copy of these in weeks due to NL and/or propagation. DXinfocentre.com
shows the broadcast as this hour would have started at 0140 from VAR-9
Yarmouth NS with 1200 watts but apparently originating in (Halifax).

2598-USB at 0215 is even weaker JBA. That would be from 0207 UT,
VOJ-6, 400 watts from Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland, SW corner of the
Rock, where I once entered NL off the ferry from Sydney (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 6660-RCUSB, Feb 20 at 0255, CHU second harmonic presumed.
Harold Frodge in MARE has reported this a number of times and I`ve
been intending to dig deeper for it. At first only voice/SSB QRM and
strong uteblaaps, and no reduced carrier even detected, but briefly
hear some CHUish chirpips; still uncopied at top of minute beep nor
preceding voice announcement (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13630 & 13769, Feb 19 at 1457, today`s spurblobs from
13700-AM are quite weak but marked by their F# tones, appox. 69-70 kHz
above and below. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5910, Feb 20 at 0315, CRI relay is S9+55! of dead air ---
almost, a bit of mod peak trying to break thru. Wiggle that patchcord!
Despite the silence, stepping across the bandwidth with BFO encounters
lots of ``sub-carriers`` especially in the 5900-5905 and 5915-5920
ranges. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4030-AM, Feb 20 at 0257 pirate music VP S8-S9,
occasional running-H2O QRM; no TOH break but song lyrix are ``Smoky
Mountain Rain``; later peaking to S9+20; 0320 still going at that
level, and past 0332. Last check 0335 just in time to hear YL with
e-mail address including Ballsmacker. Many more logs here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78258.0.html
between 0158 and 0335. KMD3HR in central Florida explains:
``03:00 Smokey Mountain Rain Amateur Radio Operator Ronnie Milsap
WB4KCG Blind Country Music prodigy! Mandrells as Backup singers``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Feb 20 at 0228, pirate music, poor S5-S6;
0230 YL? DJ mentions ``another 45 minutes``, ``This is the --??--
family coming at you on the 4th of July`` and song ``Rollin` on the
River``; 0230 stops and stays off for next few minutes. Many more unID
logs here altho a couple heard ``Outhouse Radio``:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78255.0.html
But then Outhouse Radio itself replies, ``NOPE, wasn`t me``. From as
early as 0121 there were lots of long pauses, but no one else reports
it after 0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 257-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0717 UT, FWC, 25-watt NDB at
Fairfield - Wayne County, Illinois, mixing with something even weaker;
tuned to 255-USB still in absence of SW, Stillwater OK.

263-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0720 UT, CVM, 25-watt NDB at Alton - CiVic
Memorial, Illinois.

305-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0727 UT, RO, 150-watt NDB at Roswell, New
Mexico. I was tuned to 303-USB. Lotsa sigs but lightning crashes from
storm front across central Gulf of Mexico difficultized copy. A few
more: CANADA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3455-USB, Feb 20 at 0309, ATC with JBA United flight citing
VHF frequencies, also at least twice, ``primary 5598, 3016 secondary``
-- so does that make this 3455 tertiary? New York Radio, testing a
selcall. EiBi confirms NYR is here, but also San Francisco operating
remote transmitters in Hawaii and Guam for Central and Western Pacific
routes, all available 24 hours; and something from Shannon too on
3455. NYR site is bg-Barnegat, NJ 39N45-74W23'30". Barnegat is quite a
ways from NYC in southern NJ, between the Garden State Parkway and
Long Beach barrier island, site of MW-DX peditions; and about 20 miles
from Tuckerton, another erstwhile utesite (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7290.15-AM, Feb 20 at 0321, W4SVA courteously asks at least
twice, ``is the frequency in use?`` Evidently not, except for him now:
``W4SVA USA flag USA, William C Props, Mount Solon, VA 22843. I enjoy
repairing and operating vintage tube type boatanchor equipment. You'll
find me mostly on CW and AM,`` says his qrz.com page illustrating some
of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9550, Feb 19 at 0637, VOA news is VP S3-S5; via SÃO
TOMÉ E PRÍNCIPE this hour; now I know why I had not noticed it before
the VG signal last night at this time: must have been an anomaly

** U S A. (6159.9v), UT Sat Feb 20 at 0100, webcast of WBCQ with
`AAAWWW` --- as expected starts right off lamenting demise of beloved
Rush --- I can`t continue listening but make spotchex every 10 or 15
minutes, noting some of what John Carver mentions more completely:

``Tonight's AAWWW --- Program started on time on 7490 and 6160. Allan
and Angela drinking in a chilly Fla. Opening talk about the death of
Roach Limbaugh and how he saved talk radio. Then he gave Angela a
rundown on the history of talk radio. Allan champions free speech
radio and was opposed to the fairness doctrine and credits Limbaugh
with the demise of the fairness doctrine and responsible for free
speech radio. He also stated that at some point WBCQ would air the
interview that Limbaugh conducted with Donald Trump. Angela states
that she wishes WBCQ could have broadcasted the Limbaugh program. She
also manages a few jabs at Biden and champions Trump.

Allan announces that they are adding a new segment to the show every
week called Angela's Angle. Her first talk is about free speech and
the lack of it in this country. She also states that this country was
born on the bible and the gun. Then she moves to the sense of
entitlement that the youth of this country seem to be infected with.
She also touches on racism and implies that it is the battle cry of
the left. Her segment was announced as a five or ten minute commentary
but it takes up a good portion of the program.

Reading of emails at 0153 which turns out to mostly be a Roach fest.
Program ended at 0200 without a closing prayer. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4230.0-CW, Feb 20 at 0304, random pips, not Morse code,
some long irregular strings and pauses. FAIK could be somethin`
blowin` in the wind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
