** CANADA [and non]. 1010, CFRB, reply from Karl Zuk to my reports:
``Hello Glenn: Regarding CFRB 1010 --- I live 45 miles due north of
New York City and WINS is supposed to be a dominant 50 kW signal. I am
supposed to be within the WINS nighttime primary coverage area.
CFRB and WINS battle each other every night - Always have - Always
will. I can usually null both of them apart to listen, but this can't
be done with an omni-directional car radio.
Why this allocation was ever permitted, I don't know. As far as I can
tell, CFRB simply stays on day pattern 24/7. For all intents and
purpose - especially for casual listeners - no one would seriously
listen to this maniacal mix.
I have a family home in Central Michigan near Bad Axe. Here it is CFRB
dominant on 1010 days. At night, if you listen carefully and null - it
is not hard to log WINS underneath CFRB. They should be thought of as
the Gemini twins of 1010 kHz. What fun.
What I miss is WINS HD Radio. It was a fun experience when WINS used
to lock in with HD digital. All the co-channel scramble would
instantly disappear - leaving WINS in the clear and hi-fi - but it
rarely held on for any amount of time - day or night. Thanks for
listening - Karl Zuk`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CANADA. 2598 USB, Sept 15 at 0643 UT, ``no gale warnings``, VP and
off, from one of the Canadian CG stations in Newfoundland or vicinity,
but trouble is none scheduled at this overnight gap hour in
https://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm under Met Area 4 -- unless it`s VCP4,
3000 watts from Placentia, scheduled at 0737, but maybe that means
during standard time so a real hour earlier during DST? Anyhow glad to
be hearing something here again after a long noisy summer, now abating
somewhat. Checked 2749 USB first but nothing there: from Nova Scotia
area, usually better closer signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CANADA. 6754 USB, Sept 15 at 0626, CHR Trenton Military, still the
same set of ``No Report Received`` as much earlier on 15034 USB ---
looping that for hours and hours? At 0628 UT cited time as ``0625
zulu``! Then NRRs from: Comox, Victoria, Vancouver, Shearwater(? maybe
misheard as that`s Halifax). Fortunately we still have Gander
funxioning properly with same announcer, broader non-military airports
on 6604 USB.
15034 USB, Sept 15 at 1445, Trenton finally working with reports from
Greenwood, Gander... (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. 13530, Sept 15 at 1449, Chinese S5 vs CODAR S9 peaks, i.e.
CNR1 jammer against Sound of Hope. Also weaker S4/S5 on 13130 & 13020,
the usual trio. This time I patrol all WOOB ranges between 7.9 and
16.1 MHz and do not hear a single other one, not even as JBA carrier.
Get with it, ChiCom! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6140, Sept 15 at 0632, JBA carrier, no doubt leapfrog mixing
product of RHC English 6060 over 6100 another 40 kHz beyond. 6060 is
S9+10/20 undermodulated, 6100 is S9+20/30 with only a trace of
modulation. Nothing detected on 6020 for reverse leap.
6230, Sept 15 at 0635, RHC English JBA on leapfrog mixing product of
6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz beyond; 6165 is S9+30. 6035, JBA
carrier, which would be reverse leap of 6165 over 6100 another 65 kHz
5955, Sept 15 at 0637, JBA carrier, which would be leapfrog mixing
product of 6165 over 6060 another 105 kHz beyond. Nothing detected on
6270 which would be revere leap of that. All this is happening at
Bauta site. 6000, if it were still on, would not be participating as
it`s from Quivicán. The Other Side:
``Cuba left off the list of suggested tourism destinations
Varadero was chosen as the world's second most 'ideal beach', but did
not even appear as a recommended travel destination.

** MADAGASCAR. As we are almost out of summer, I wondered whether
there could still be any DX propagation in the middle of our night on
16 m? Yes, the two OSOB Talata relay frequencies as better heard
previously, which have a large trans-equatorial advantage.
17790, Sept 15 at 0621, JBA S5/S6, i.e. AWR French 0600-0630; and:
17530.024, Sept 15 at 0622, JBA carrier offset as usual, i.e. BBCWS in
English, 0600-0800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 15 at 0630 direct, VON is off again/still.
[and non] 7255 minus 67 Hz = 7254.933, Sept 15 at 1724 into Canary
SDR, VON is on in English, S8/S9 but VP in noise. 1801 recheck is off
leaving VP S5/S6 music only +002 Hz, i.e. Xizang PBS, ChiCom-occupied
TIBET, scheduled until 1805: and yes, cuts off at 1805*. Still no VON
at 1830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
