Logs
Original post not showing up right away maybe due to the QSL jpg attachment. So I take this opportunity to resend without it, and also correct the year on the subject!

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Sat Jan 4 at 2039, not R. Tirana via WRMI as
expected but music and Pastor Ray, Light of the Word, referencing John
XVII: 37-38. Altho Tirana is 6 days a week, WRMI skedgrid does now
show it at 2030 M-F only with this bumper on Saturday. The Sat edition
should still go out at 0230 UT Sun on 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA. 891, Jan 5 at 0649, woman in Arabic; best heard yet, the
reactivated Ouled Fayet 600 kW transmitter of RA-1 near Algiers.
Wolfgang Bueschel thinx these superpowers are running about half to
save costs. Mostly separable from WLS by USB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13685, Jan 5 at 1507, CRI English W&M chat, via MALI,
S3-S5 yet louder than // 15700 via CUBA, S9 but JBM. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 5 at 0708, R. Rebelde is S9+40 but suptorted and
splattering out to plus/minus 15 kHz. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 5 at 1608, RHC in Esperanto, overmodulated, extra
frequency while 11760 original channel is AWOL. Did not hear what
imaginary frequencies may have been announced at outset (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Jan 5 at 1512, two stations mixing with
flutter, long/short path echo. Evidently TURKET is again jamming Dengê
Welat via FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MOROCCO. 595.9, Jan 5 at 0651, JBA carrier, way off-frequency from
594 as I bandscan. Exactly the same offset as in previous log; have
been alert for this since but not caught again until now:

``595.9, Oct 25 at 0608, JBA carrier. Before a bandscan, I check for
this first, as the low-power 50 kW Oujda transmitter of SNRT has been
reported by Chris McWhinnie and Alan Pennington of the British DX
Club, further off-frequency than usual 595 instead of 594, and there
it is! Wolfgang Bueschel precisioned it at 595.896`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4080-USB, Jan 5 at 0129, Texas Radio Shortwave found
here, already music at tune-in for publicized 0130 broadcast.

My reception report to pirate Texas Radio Shortwave:

``Dear TSWR: Thanks for the invitation. I did catch your broadcast
tonight, and here is my report for QSL. This is before I have read
what anyone else may have said about it on HF Underground.

Receiver: R75
Antenna: longwire 100 feet east-west, probably not ideal if you are
south of me
Date: UT January 5
Steady S9 on generous meter with preamps, very little fading, but not
enough to overcome noise level making copy difficult. SINPO: 35343
I can seldom make out details of announcements.
Enjoyed the music, some of it familiar to me, but I can`t identify
much of it by title, and I do not use apps to do that

0129, found signal on 4080-USB and tune in, already music.
0130, sound effects and announcements
0131, Texas Radio Shortwave ID; country/bluegrass song
0136:20, segue to another tune
0138:35, segue to another at first instrumental, then vocal.
``Black
day in July`` sounded like a refrain, maybe title, over and
over there may be more segues so smooth I do not note them
0151, segue, country tune
0155, another segue
0158, brief announcements
0201, longer announcement, ``free radio`` promo with reverb
0202, ad for ``radio communications magazine``; familiar blues tune
0215, unreadable announcement
0230, ID and ``In the Mood``, familiar
0248, still on
0256, ID and contact info by M & F voices,
nothing further, apparently over and off

Thanks for the show. Hope the report is of use to you and let us know
about future broadcasts, hopefully with better reception. 73, Glenn
Hauser``

Reply a few hours later:

Ahoy Matey Glenn - Your report washed up on shore here at South Padre
Island. Quartermaster compared it to ship's log and told Third Mate to
send you this verification.

Crew was excited to know you wrote in. Second Mate's the only crew
member who can read, so he read what crew said we[re] the most
complete reception report they'd ever heard. And crew's been around
since the old, old days of pirate radio.

Best wishes from Cap'n. Always be yourself. Unless you can be a
pirate. Then always be a pirate. 73 and Arrgghh.

It`s an Alamo QSL --- and shows my location as Altus, Oklahoma; not
sure where he got that, but maxe it even more unique. [attached]

(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6934.9-AM, Jan 5 at 0134, VP signal from unID
pirate, maybe Captain Morgan SW, as heard Dec 21 on this off-frequency
and IDed by others. Other unID logs as 6935 today at 0118:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,62054.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, KUCO Edmond/OKC, has had a lot of disruptions last
few days. Jan 5 at 1455 UT, dead air; resumed by 1523. Because they
are moving into brand-new studios in downtown OKC, distancing
themselves from the UCO campus in Edmond. On Jan 2, were plugged into
WCPE feed all day(?) instead of overnight only, such that could not
insert StarDate at 1558 UT or 0058 UT. Other things I wanted to hear
unavailable, such as Performance Oklahoma Sat at 14-16 UT, and Weekend
Radio UT Sun at 04-05. However, they did get Metropolitan Opera on at
1700 Sat with Der Rosenkavalier, but that could have been via WCPE
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 13750, Sat Jan 4 at 2027, S9 open carrier,
2028 YDD VOA sign-on, 2030 into music and French DJ without
introducing the program or language. At first I wondered if there had
been a punch-up error confusing the digits of 17530 or 15730 at
Grimesland --- but 13750 is axually scheduled from Pinheira at
2030-2100 Sat & Sun only, for some reason breaking in the middle of
French which has just cut off 15730 daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 1521, Jan 4 at 2228, JBA carrier hetting KOKC OKC,
presumed 2 megawatt Duba, and disappears sometime between 2230 and
2231 as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 9350, Jan 4 at 2105-2200, `Encore` via WWCR,
excellent this week with no cross-talk detected (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SPAIN. 774, Jan 5 at 0650, usual two carriers beating, 0653 Spanish
talk from RNE1 synchros, headed by 100 kW València and seven others
down to 10 kW. Does anyone know which be off-frequency? MWOffsets
shows Valencia only 0.2 Hz low and no others more than 3 Hz minus.
Iran and Egypt both have high-power 774s considerably
off-frequency+plus, but would not expect them to be involved this late
into their daytimes. Only other Europeans are very low powers in Italy
and UK.

774 is the #1 audible TA frequency here; just as it is the #1 audible
TP frequency later from Japan. Someone pointed out that around 0700 UT
both of these could propagate midwinter to N America; not tonight when
I also checked from the NW. Nor was there much from NHK an hour before
sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, 11940, 11685, Jan 5 at 1515, REE in descending order
of audibility during stupid ballgame, and also a JBA carrier on 9690,
the North American frequency which could be REE not really propagating
yet? Or CRI Bengali. 1605 recheck, now an S8-S5 signal on 9690 but in
Japanese! See TAIWAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN. 9690, Jan 5 at 1605, still looking for SPAIN q.v. to North
America; instead, talk in Japanese. HFCC shows an Encompass-brokered
broadcast, 300 kW, 2 degrees from Taiwan; but what is it, really?
NDXC/Aoki has the answer: Furusato no Kaze, clandestine about North
Korean abduxions. Fortunately it`s only at 1600-1630, so Spain can
still be clear afterwards if it ever resume (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 359 kHz, Jan 4 at 0714 UT, ND beacon SDR, 25 watts from
Snyder TX, which is just NW of Sweetwater on the way to Lubbock (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2015 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria reports: ``Reception of World of Radio#2015 via WRMI tx#09,
January 4: 1300-1330 on 15770 RMI 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu English
Sat, good``

Confirmed here UT Sun Jan 5 at 0440, S9+30 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, about

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 5 at *0105, WTWW-2 cuts on air as I have been
waiting for it, amid rock music, rather distorted but clears up a bit
after a while. 0132 Ted with ham ads; by 0135, Bob Heil`s theater
organ program has started and by 0204 recheck still has not finished.
But I am mainly monitoring Texas Radio SW during the same semihour
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, Jan 5 at 1505, SFAW WTWW-1 is unusually on but weaker
than should be, S9-S4, PPPP about John The Baptist; may be more likely
on during Sunday morning church-a-goin` time but not every week. Off
already at 1936 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Jan 5 at 1514, now the day frequency of WEWN Spanish
is dead air, S9-S6. Something`s always wrong at Vandiver? Recheck at
1940, now some weak modulation, can`t be sure if it be Spanish rather
than Ndarason via Ascension, but there is some hum à la ASC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Recalcitrant affiliates play old, older WRs

Message sent to Robert Conrad of Weekend Radio at WCLV:

``Robert, What a mess just trying to hear Weekend Radio tonight ---
Jan 4. KUCO is plugged into WCPE as they are temporarily unable to run
normal schedule as they are just moving into their new studios in
downtown OKC.

Two other stations are known to webcast WR at the same time: 11 pm
Eastern: WXXI Rochester is playing #205 from last week, which we have
already heard. KTOO Juneau is playing #203 from mid-December! which we
have already heard. I confirmed this by checking the content of your
rundowns.

WCLV I think did really play the new #206 an hour earlier. I would
have normally listened then but there was another scheduling conflict
so I depended on WXXI or KTOO to play it an hour later. That`ll teach

me!!!


Could you prevail upon those affiliates to run the current program on
the current Weekend??!!

Now next weekend (or two or three?) we`ll have to fish around for 206
as well as 207 somewhere. Or maybe WUOT will be on the ball this
Sunday afternoon? {Yes! at 18 UT, first of two all-request shows.}

It would also be nice if one could just click on a podcast of whatever
episode may have been missed for whatever reason. Regards,
Glenn Hauser, Enid`` No reply yet; he may be on vacation (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 693, Jan 5 at 0659, two JBA carriers beating. Major
station is BBC Radio 5 Live, with multiple synchros; a few in Algeria
and Spain no more than 20 kW. MWOffsets shows the Spaniards are more
spread out than the Brits almost all spot-on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17495, Jan 5 at 1611, JBA carrier which would be the
OSOB if this were inband except for 17830 JBAC Ascension. Nothing
listed on 17495 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1957 UT January 5, 2020

** AUSTRALIA. Re: [WOR] Australian Bushfires, Unique Radio

Hi Glenn, Thank you for your concern. Myself and my family are safe at
present as the fires are not very close to where we are on the
southern outskirts of Sydney. However, as we live in what is called
the “ember zone”, close to a national park, we are being vigilant and
have been since before Christmas. Concerns are for those affected by
the catastrophic conditions that are due today (Saturday 4 Jan) in
parts of NSW and Victoria and numerous other fires affecting others
elsewhere. 41 degrees Celsius (106 degrees Fahrenheit) expected here
today, with high speed winds due this evening.

Judging by the NSW Rural Fire Service website, Unique Radio is not
located close to fires at present. -- Regards, (BRIAN POWELL VK2FBAJ,
Sydney, Australia, WOR iog)

** CHINA. 12360, Jan 4 at 0253, surprise bigsig S9+20 in Chinese.
Really stands out as only signal above 11856.4 Brasil, and on 25mb
nothing but two Brazilians and Cuba. Pays to perform full
way-out-of-band scans. I`ve checked thoroly all the way from 10 to 15
MHz, and nothing but this. Is on the Aoki/NDXC list as a jammed Sound
of Hope frequency, presumably with CNR1. Already off at 0257 recheck.
Wish we could know what transmitter site achieve this (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 2940+, Jan 4 at 0232, no trace of HJNT, Radio Huellas,
Cali, whose off-frequency second harmonic used to be obvious. I`ve
been alert for it on frequent bandscans. They must have fixed it or be
off the air from 1470 too. Last reported 30 Aug 2019 by Brett Saylor,
PA on 2940.11. Per WRTH 2020, website is radiohuellascali.com and that
linx to sked:
https://www.sistemahuellasinternacional.com/show-schedule/
but it`s rather strange, partly in English and Latin! I think they
have not fleshed it out completely; WRTH says 1100-0500 UT, but they
have shows starting at midnight = 0500, can`t tell if run all night or
not. Had been Colombia`s only [almost] SW station.

Say, what about that new ``ethnic`` evangelical SW, supposed to start
up last month/year in eastern Colombia? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 4 at 0235, Radio Rebelde is suptorted, maybe in
silly baseball game? I think there is crowd noise. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 7330, Jan 4 at 0245, W&M in Chinese, reading S9 but
weak with flutter. Not a time I would expect to hear China, but
probably from the west arriving from the east rather than vice versa,
or close to polar where it`s mostly darky. Yes: Aoki/NDXC shows this
hour is CRI via Kashgar, land of Uighur brainwashing by the ChiCom.
Cuts off at 0300 after two pips of a timesignal (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Jan 4 at 0238, S9 signal but JBM with music
and not // 1390 KCRC ESPN X 5. Also noted an hour earlier with even
less signal, only sign of a pirate. Other logs as unID:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,62016.0.html
Off by recheck 0302 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Texas Radio Shortwave tells me: ``TRSW will
broadcast volume 1 of Cap'n's favorite rock songs from the '60s and
'70s sometime around 0130 UTC on Sunday, January 5. (That's Saturday
night in Oklahoma.) The frequency will be in the range 4060 to 4085
kHz if propagation is good and 6875 to 6970 if it isn't.`` and invites
me to try again with a detailed report for their coveted QSL (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2015 monitoring: confirmed Friday
January 3 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, vs wall-of-noise jamming by Cuba,
which does not abate by 2308; partially readable depending on fades.

Also confirmed UT Sat Jan 4 at 0130 on WRMIs 5010 S9+10/20 good with
no QRM or het yet from Madagascar, synchro with super-strong 5850; and
on 7780 slightly out of synch from different playout, S9+10. 7780 had
been carrying NY edition of Wavescan, fill with ME music, and Ian ID;
5850 & 5010 had Spanish robobibling interrupted for BB ID. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490.177, Jan 4 at 0051, I find WBCQ jumped?drifted? further
off-frequency than usual during usual gospel huxter; and 5130 is off
the air. 0100 starts `Allan Weiner Worldwide` but shortly becomes
evident it`s a rerun, as he is talking about the Ampegon antenna under
construxion, apparently from early August; so I bail out. And at 0114,
John Carver says,

``Glenn, No signal on 5130 this evening and 7490 is in and out and not
a great signal. It appears that tonight's show is a repeat from back
when the superstation was being built as he's talking about assembling
the crane to build the antenna and that it's the ten-month anniversary
of his meeting Angela. John``

5130, at 0236 Jan 4 now this WBCQ is on, S9/+10 and playing AWWW, the
same or another repeat? If live it would have been at 0100 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Jan 4 at 0055, WEWN is S9-S8 of dead air in Spanish;
latest problem with this transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1020, Jan 4 at 0339 UT, nulling KOKP I hear Jim Bohannon;
which 1020 is he on? Station finder at
http://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/
leads off with KVNT Anchorage AK, but not starting until 7 pm = 04 UT;
and only one other, far more likely here, KDKA Pittsburgh PA, from 10
pm = 03 UT. He has quite a roster, but still not a single station in
OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

modulation; just like used to happen with former 9640 frequency in the
mornings: (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 5045-USB, Jan 3 at 0945, no signal from Unique Radio
during WORLD OF RADIO time for first SW broadcast anywhere. Not that I
was expecting to hear this low-power affiliate, but checked since I
happened to awaken during. As I said on the WOR iogroup:

``We hope all our Oz members are OK despite the bushfires. Please
check in here when you can. Here`s one recent map of the areas
affected, but not sharp boundaries:

https://www.newsweek.com/australia-wildfire-map-update-bushfires-sydney-new-south-wales-1480207#slideshow/1557316

It looks like Gunnedah, N of Sydney and just east of 150 longitude is
not far from the area, extending inland from the NSW coast. That would
affect Tim Gaynor and Unique Radio. No updates about the M/W/F
schedule at https://www.uniqueradio.biz/
How is it, Tim?`` (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** AUSTRIA. Re my comments on the New Year concert from Vienna:
looking again at a repeat, I do catch one quick closeup of one female
player, but from the back and quickly pulling out. As for the scenes
of Vienna, they were obviously recorded in the summer, a far cry from
what it must be like now in the winter ORF do not want us to see
(Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CHINA. 6870, Jan 3 at 1332, Chinese at S6-S8 on noisy conditions.
Aoki shows one of countless CNR1 jamming frequencies against 24-hour
Sound of Hope. I have just tuned up from the 6.2 MHz area without
hearing any of that.

9200, Jan 3 at 1340, JBA talk instead of the open carrier used to park
here; another listed CNR1/SOH frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13560, Jan 2 at 1516, spurblob from RHC 13700 first
encountered as I tune up the band, then: 13630 S9+10 with music better
heard in AM than FM; 13700 fundamental S9+10; 13770 S9; 13840 S6;
13910 S4; 13980 & 13490 traces; all about 70 kHz intervals.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. Next day Jan 3 before 1400 however,
no spurs heard when both 13700 & 13740 fundamentals are on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7330-7350, Jan 3 at 1336, RHC cracklebuzzhum over this range
out of 7340 transmitter where it is also degrading the intended
modulation; just like used to happen with former 9640 frequency in the
mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 11560, Jan 3 at 1355, woman talking in SW Asian language,
S6-S9. NDXC shows AIR Bengaluru in Dari at 1315-1415 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 6190, Jan 3 at 1328, Beethoven catches my ear, but stops at
end of movement, 1330 NHK IS and opening Chinese. HFCC shows Korean
and Chinese semihours alternating 1300-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Jan 3 at 0659 UT, KGYN Guymon with ID as Liberal
Kansas 106.3 KGYN, no mention of 1210. I see on website
http://stecklinecommunications.com/kgyn/
that 106.3 gets equal billing to 1210 but not top billing. That`s
really a puny translator, K292HJ, 106.3 Liberal KS, unlikely to be
very audible 36 miles away back in Guymon. On the WTFDA FM Database I
see no FM for KGYN in Guymon itself or anywhere else. K292HJ is
slightly north of the 37th parallel so really in Kansas --- like all
the other Steckline properties except 1210, which is normally audible
at night despite supposed to null toward WPHT which I managed to hear
the night before at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, Jan 3 at 1313-1317+ UT, KZLS ``Enid`` in dead air
as frequently happens. Nulling it I can tell there are at least two
other talk stations there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391 kHz, Jan 2 at 0714 UT, ND beacon DDP, a new one,
whence? Surprised to find it`s San Juan - Dorado, 1000 watts; my first
from PR, and probably most distant at 3676 km = 2284 st mi. And I was
tuned to 389-USB (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615+, Jan 2 at 1515, JBA carrier the OSOB,
obviously the always off-frequency Riyadh; not a trace of 17775 KVOH
this early, but heard later, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 2 at 2347 check, REE again AWOL to North America;
not audible on 12030 either (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 2015, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 2 at 2346, VOT has been on today, now wrapping up
with erroneous English schedule claiming 9515 at 0300, which was A-19;
and imaginary 0600 on 6165 --- hey, that imaginary broadcast would now
be at 0700 UT (rather than 0400 Turktime).(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 12035, Jan 3 at 1356, VOT English to Europe and onward best
heard in a long time, S9/+10 with several program segments: `Weekly
announcements`, reading an article about Turkish involvement in Libya;
1400 song; 1405 `Turkey`s Tourist Attraxions` about Mardin, Anatolia;
lite stray pulse jamming, from Cuba? 1418 new program `Turkey Building
Bridges of Kindness(?)`` on TCCA, the Turkish Cooperation and
Coordination Agency involving 170 countries; 1422 one news headline
about assassinating the Iranian general; 1423 sign-off, brief IS and
off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8152-USB, Jan 3 at 1343 KNC hosting a net inviting check-ins
from anywhere; at 1345, KPK is heard in contact with Lady Sunscreen(?)
with position co-ordinates; and it`s well past Xmas now. 8152 is
supposed to be an afternoon frequency as previously logged, instead
8104 in the mornings per

https://www.ssca.org/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=710182&module_id=283983

``SSCA's Trans-Atlantic Cruisers' Net (SSCA TACN) is in operation

** U S A [non]. 10051-USB, Jan 2 at 1855, Gander Radio VOLMET, but
further chex for New York VOLMET on this and other formerly timeshared
frequencies find nothing despite a report they had been heard again:
at 1911 and 2040, 13270-USB open. At 0655 Jan 3, Gander on 6604-USB,
3485-USB and JBA on 10051-USB. All frequencies checked several other
unlogged times with no sign of NY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Jan 2 at 2100, WRMI is on with SMTV; some days does
not come on until later or not at all, so this time RAE Spanish at
0100 Jan 3 should be there. At 2100 FYI, much weaker 5950 is running
TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2015)

** U S A [and non]. 17775, Jan 2 at 1853, KVOH gospel huxter in
Spanish at S9+20, so it`s really on the air now; earlier at 1623 check
not a trace of it while 17830 Ascension & 17880 Mali JBA carriers were
the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Jan 3 at 0515, after missing a few nights, WEWN is
back --- but with a slight problem: carrier modulated with Spanish
cuts off the air 84 times a minute like clockwork. How do they do
this? When on it reaches S9+10. Later at 0651 check it`s totally off.
Other frequency 9385 in English only S4-S7 but continuous (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 1090, Jan 3 at 0704 UT, dead air from KAAY Little
Rock as often happens, during which I hear a Spanish infomercial
without really trying, no doubt XEAU Monterrey; 0705 KAAY comes to
life with gospel music. USB tuning avoids the 1089 het from UK (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1210, Jan 2 at 0659 UT, PSA for Goodwill Industries in NJ
and Philadelphia so WPHT tho U1 50/50 kW, unusually dominating briefly
over KGYN et al.; I often check around this hour whether daytimer WJNL
MI still be cheating (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Jan 3 at 0439-0457
finds a lot more than usual, including low-power frequencies, two
carriers beating from deeper Europe: 531, 549+(2), 558(2), 576(2),
585, 594, 603(2), 612, 621(2), 639(2), 684+, 693*, 711(2), 729(2),
738, 747, 774**(2), 783, 837(2), 846(2), 855*(2), 864, 873, 882,
891**, 909*, 936(2), 954, 963 [both sides of local 960], 981, 999,
1026(2), 1053*, 1089, 1098(2), 1107(2), 1116, 1125, 1152, 1161, 1179,
1206, 1215(2), 1296(2), 1305(2), 1314, 1323, 1413(2), 1422, 1458(2),
1521, 1539, 1566, 1575. * are the stronger ones. ** the ones with some
music modulation audible, surely Spain and Algeria (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Jan 3 at 0455-0505+ UT, techno(?) music with heavy
regular beat slightly more than twice per second, and another carrier;
no ID or break at ToH. I often get a JBA carrier here, but first time
for any audio. Widely reported further east is a pirate in Virginia?
Tater Patch Radio, and Radio Corsair among others (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4020-USB, Jan 3 at 1323, formal MARS? net with abbr`d
calls fonetikaly, 7HR, 7PQ, calling for traffic then sent in some
digital mode (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9654-9658, Jan 3 AT 1348, farting-like pulses INTRUDING,
irregular but continuous; audible in SSB mode only, peaking about 9656
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
