Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Dec 31 at 1500-1545, 1615 recheck,
NO show by LRA36 into Uruguay or best Argentine SDR, so that`s it for
2022 Cycle; managed only 20 minutes on Wed Dec 28. If they are in a
midsummer break, I would dearly like to get another hour of shuteye
these mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. Re 9819.106, as heard on WOR 2171 tnx to Gary Pence, from
Ben Dawson of Hatfield-Dawson Consulting Engineers: ``Glenn, Thank you
for playing the recording of the station ID by R. Nove de Julho from
its shortwave transmission. The 100 kW RNJ. medium wave on 1600 uses
an antenna feed system that we designed and that Steve Lockwood and I
implemented. The MW antenna has much higher voltages than the local
design engineer predicted, and so we designed and Harris Broadcast
fabricated antenna tuning equipment that used techniques we would
normally have employed for a much higher power facility in order to
handle the voltages. Even our Brazilian engineering colleague was
unaware that RNJ was still operating the shortwave transmitter. Ben``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 1610, Dec 31 at 0737, VP algo not up to CHHA
Toronto`s usual quality; off or reduced power? Frequency worth
exploring for otherness: if not Montreal or US TIS, no Anguilla but a
few probably low-powered in Perú, Argentina; or N American pirates?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 7850 RCUSB, Dec 31 at 0725, NO signal from CHU: must be
off, not propped out since 6754 USB bears usual good S9+10 signal from
CHR, Trenton Military. 3330 CHU is still audible but rather weak,
S7/S9. At 1610, third CHU channel, 14670 is OK, unheard on 7850. What
does System Status show?
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
At 1757 UT Dec 31, all three ON, and no outages since May 30, 2022!
Don`t you believe it (Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** CUBA. 10080, Dec 31 at 0714, RHC Spanish again mistuned to second
harmonic of 5040 where there is only a JBA carrier. S9+10/20
overmodistorted.

5025, OTOH, Dec 31 at 0715, R. Rebelde is S9+20/30 on fundamental,
with NO harmonic on 10050; similar overmodistortion to 10080.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Dec 31 at 0717, RHC Spanish S9+10 but undermodulated,
// 10080; At 0719, only other is 6100, S9+20 with good modulation in
Spanish, wrong language instead of English. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, Dec 31 at 1601* tuned in RHC ID just a few seconds
before cut off air. 13700 was already off well before 1600. What else?
By 1607, 11760 & much weaker 15140 still on as sked, but at 1608 so is
stronger S9+10 unsked 15230. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Dec 31 at 0730, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati. Only other 9/kHz split JBA carrier is 1017: Strongly suspect
A3Z, TONGA, already an hour+ past 0626 UT sunset at Nuku`alofa per
gaisma.com. By 1100 UT it shall be 2023 there; by 1000 UT on Xmas I
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 31 at 0722, VON at S6/S9 in presumed Fulfulde,
managing to modulate again tonight, altho under- (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2171 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday December 31 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+15/25 into Missouri
SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sat Dec 31 at 0500 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 5130, S9/+5
into Missouri SDR as it`s skipping over closer ones like NH, and
offset -21 Hz = 5129.979. But only the first minute! As dumps OFF the
air at 0501* and never resumes. Immediately I asked Uncle Bill, what
happened? ``Excellent question, going to check with Monticello. Your
whole show was loaded to the server so timer issue or human error
there`` and at 0522, ``I wouldn't expect us back tonite, skeleton crew
right now``.

Also confirmed Sat Dec 31 at 1700 on WRN webcast for North America.

** U S A. (7489.9v not), Dec 31 from 0100, WBCQ webcast still running
if not the primary SW transmitter, for `AAAWWW`. At first sounds like
several other people in studio but it`s just A&A. Yes, her mike is on!
Mentions that two staff at Monticello are under the weather, CE Tom,
and Jeff. Was one of them the electrocuted? Also TimTron but not clear
what ails him. Trimulcasting? 6160 & 5130 but not 7490 which failed:
there is a backup transmitter for that frequency but no staff there
who can hook it up. A&A are still in Florida.

But did Jason get the ``backup`` frequency 3265 on the air? Yes, at
0112 the NH SDR is getting it well, S8/S9, as usual way
off-frequency+plus and constantly varying, at several further chex:
+136/144/186/169/172 Hz, etc. At 0220 I try for it direct, but no
trace of it, already off. AW also says the SuperStition does not
always run 500 kW; if 300, 250 or even 100 is sufficient for a certain
target, power is reduced. Runs on high voltage which can kill you,
4160 X 3, and hundreds of amps.

Most of A&A`s discussion is lamenting everything going digital and
computer controlled, always causing problems when something goes
wrong, and not easily fixed like analog stuff used to be; not only in
radio, but cars, etc. A few anti-government remarx, but not heavily
insulting Democrats this week.

0134 datestamp as 30 of December, YOOLF 2022. 0138 recommendation to
avoid stress for better health, longer life. 0142 reads parts of two
Radio World articles about preserving AM radio, FCC guy addressing
farmers; and Sen. Markey on that subject. 0155 email. 0159 prayer, as
always running over so joining Hal Turner late about 0201 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130 minus 21 Hz = 5129.979, UT Sat Dec 31 at 0330, WBCQ
Radio Angela with `Greek Music Refuge`, S7 into Missouri SDR vs storm
crashes from northern Gulf of Mexico, off coasts of LA/MS/AL, and into
the FL panhandle. So not very good reception but enjoy the music tho
cannot understand the lyrix, nor the brief announcements in English by
Zach Liangas and Anastasia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330.00, Dec 31 at 0711 I can hardly believe my ears but
WBCQ-6 SuperStition with WLC Radio in English, is ON-frequency!! Not
measured, but tuning -1 kHz USB, pitch matches that of 9395 WRMI which
is never more than a few Hz off. No Cuban spy now. It`s S9+10/20 so
unlikely a substitute transmitter. But this does not last: next check
at 1557, measured 9329.809, S9+10 in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 31 at 0722, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu, still
here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2026 UT December 31

UNIDENTIFIED. 15360, Dec 31 at 1609, wailing at S8/9+10 with flutter,
unseems Christian, then talk in unknown language. Nothing in Big 3
schedules at this hour; AWR via Sri Lanka to Pakistan not scheduled
until 1630. AWR also sked later on 15360 via SL or Madagascar. Some
NYE extension? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 1610, Dec 30 at 0713 UT, only JBA signal instead of usual
sufficient CHHA Toronto; is it off? Soon fades up some Spanish music,
so maybe caught just in a fade, or QRP? No 1610.65 het now (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Dec 30 at 0728, S9+10/20 of dead air from RHC; likewise
only other still on, 11670 at S5/S9. But is the dead air in English
and/or Spanish? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Dec 30 at 2112, RHC in Brazuguese but suptorted with
hum; 15140 in French with hum. Somethings` always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Dec 30 at 2203, no R. Cairo English signal into
UTwente; something`s amiss at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, Dec 30 at 0700, VON S9+10 and managing to
modulate! in some African language: scheduled to switch from Hausa to
Fulfulde at 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. This article never mentions OETA, which claims
to cover all of Oklahoma, as on the map abottom this page:
https://www.oeta.tv/about/
including Idabel in McCurtain county but certainly with outdated
analog translator channel numbers like 73 there. At least on cable to
that county and 76 others??

Of course, OETA has only ONE hour a week of `Oklahoma News Report`
with a few repeats. It used to have a M-F half hour of news, which
included items from several cooperating commercial TV stations in
Tulsa, OKC, Lawton? Not any more. gh. Viz.:

``Data shows voting sagged in ‘orphan counties’ lacking news sources
By Keaton Ross Oklahoma Watch 22 hrs ago

Tucked away in the southeast corner of the state, McCurtain County
residents receive television news from Shreveport, La.

Shreveport is a slightly closer drive than Oklahoma City or Tulsa, and
its stations rarely delve into Oklahoma politics. With statewide
newspaper circulation a thing of the past, state Rep. Eddy Dempsey
said his constituents mostly rely on spotty broadband service to keep
up with developments at the state Capitol.

“The sad part is, if I lived another mile west I’d be able to get them
(Oklahoma news channels),” said Dempsey, a Republican from Valliant
whose district covers all of McCurtain County and southern LeFlore
County. “If I used my address in Oklahoma City I could maybe get those
channels. But why should I have to do that when I live in the state of
Oklahoma?”

McCurtain County is an orphan county, a term coined by researchers to
describe areas that receive little to no in-state public affairs
coverage or political advertisements because of their media market
placement.

Orphan counties can be found scattered across Oklahoma. Cimarron,
Texas and Beaver counties in the Panhandle receive television news
from Amarillo, Texas. Stations in Fort Smith, Ark., serve Sequoyah and
Le Flore counties...``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Dec 30 after 2300, token English from REE, Justin
Coe reviewing excerpts from his interviews past year, some of which I
remember hearing before, including: performer on a tricycle; 2311
American discovering European art Alun (sp?) W. Moore; ending with the
classical singer who confronts coughers and phoners in his audience,
but concludes with light-hearted ``Short People`` by Randy Newman.
After 2330 switch to French I check the other frequencies into
Maryland SDR: 11940 & 12030 are weaker but quite sufficient; 11685 for
Africa still absent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003+, Dec 30 after 2300, VOT English is VG
S9+25/35 into UTwente, soon joined by CCI from CC Chicom understation,
but way below this time; news and usual features, music breaks,
including at 2347-2350, `DYKT?` the longest [strong??] bridge is in
Tuerkiye, at border with Greece and Bulgaria, built in 1443, 1,270m,
174 arches, of limestone, travertine. Still in use today; more
dimensions, etc. Music break and 2353 s/off, and off right away by
2355*, no German. Uncovers XJPBS only S7/S9; 2300 timesig, theme,
joined by another carrier causing SAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Among a number of 10m ham beacons, Dec 30 at 2100/2103 by
sporadic E, two on almost but not exactly same frequency, WI5V info:

28230+, E E E E E E E E NG7I/B:
28.2308 NG7I C RITZVILLE, WASHINGTON 2 WATTS, VERTICAL new start date
6 Dec 2021

28230+, but slightly lower from BFO pitch, VVV VVV VVV QRA W7PFR/B:
28.2308 W7PFR C MINERAL, WASHINGTON # 1.5W, VERTICAL New 8 February 13
presumed QRT [NOT] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Dec 30 at 2134, I remember to check for Friday`s
`Music Time in Africa` which during B-seasons only is beamed eastward
from VOA Grimesland NC, but also hefty VG signal off the back to here.
Heather Maxwell thinx its at the half-hour. Interruptions for promos,
one right away claiming the times for it are Fri 0900, Sat 0900, 1500
and 2200 on voanews.com -- no mention of this time or anything about
SW! A few minutes later they plug MTIA`s YouTube channel for
``everything``. Music is mostly Africanized Xmas carols. A
``needle-drop`` segment, apparently a music quiz for a caller-in. Off
the air after 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2171 monitoring: confirmed UT
Friday December 30 at 0330, first SW airing on WRMI 7780, but a JBA
carrier direct; despite storm line from SE TX to central AR, best
remote is Maurice LA, S5/S8, better than Missouri S6/S7 with more
stormcrashes, Maryland S7 vs HNL. (BTW, 7730 still off the air).

Not checked next airing, 0830 UT Friday on WRMI 5010 and/or 5850, too
asleep; did anyone? Conflicting info about OTH Radio at 08-09 Friday
only, on 7780 or 5850? Indonesia relay is normally at 08-09 on 7780,
but this week Ron Howard heard OTH instead; so does that mean WOR was
still on 5850??

Finally some good news: WOR 2171 confirmed Friday December 30 at 1530
on WRMI 9955, S9/S4 direct. Despite skedgrid, 9955 had been turned off
after 1500 for a few weeks, but WOR continued on WRMI`s only frequency
with webcast. Today WOR to completion at 1559; 1600 a few intrusive YL
words, and switch to TOMBS. Now checking Maryland SDR, still on at
1645, but off by 1707, so can we now rely on 9955 SW at least until
1600? Once off but still tuned to 9955, Maryland is getting strange
chirping: that`s 5 kHz off high-pitched Firedrake ChiCom jamming on
9950 against RFA Saipan at 17-19.

Also confirmed Friday December 30 at 2149 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM
Italia, Villa Estense, 1323 kHz only, VG S9+15 into nearby Noale SDR,
no QRM or fading. 2200 ``signing off`` but stays on with Feature Story
News. Next:

0130 UT Saturday WRMI 5850 to NW
0500 UT Saturday WBCQ Radio Angela 5130v to WSW

** U S A. 9330, Dec 30 after 0700, WBCQ-6 is off again; at 1530 check,
it`s on again. Latest twit circa 1440 UT Dec 30: ``Allan Weiner

There will be no updates during January; the next update will be late
February. Best wishes and a Happy New Year, Alan Roe

** ALASKA. 9550, Dec 29 at 1538, hymn at S8/S9. KNLS listed this hour
in Russian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9819.106, Dec 29 at 0725, JBA carrier from R. Nove de
Julho. That`s all I ever hear from this overnight station, but no
doubt about it due to offset frequency. Gary Pence found a fine signal
into an Argentine remote and recorded the ID at 0600, which is heard
on WOR 2171; frequency display exactly the same as I measured it
independently. Claimed to be on ``9820`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5024, Dec 29 at 0737, Rebelde ID in passing, S9+10/20 but
distorted. Someone mispunched instead of 5025; even worse for 5020
Solomons listeners, Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, Dec 29 at 0729, RHC news in Spanish, S9/+10, the SSOB
by far with only a few JBA carriers elsewhere on 25m. This one is
supposed to off much earlier and has been caught before in unscheduled
English, Only one other lower RHC is still on:

6165, Dec 29 at 0730, S8/S9 of dead air, only RHC still on except
11670. Somethings` always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, 11760, 13700 and no spurs, 15140, 15230, Dec 29 at
1534-1543, all these RHC active again initially with // piano music
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Dec 29 at 0744, R. Kiribati the only 9 kHz
split JBA MW carrier audible now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2171)

** MEXICO. 6185, Dec 29 at 0733, XEPPM is S7/S9, good modulation,
soprano in English with ``I know that my redeemer liveth``. Let us
classify as a bit of classical among eclectic format rather than
conversion to gospehuxterism. One redeeming aspect of religionism is
the great music it has inspired, even for the Secular (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 29 at 0735, VON turned on at S5/S7 but dead air
or JBM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Dec 29 at 1535 UT, SW, StillWater is still
ON; 350, RG, OKC, is still OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PHILIPPINES. 9275, Dec 29 at 1536, VG in Chinese. FEBC Bocaue
registered 100 kW, 1000-1600 at 345 degrees, i.e. NNW. I would have
guessed NNE more USward like Tinang. Apparently the ChiCom do not
bother to jam this (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Dec 29 at 1537, WLCR/WBCQ-6 is still/again off.
Latest twit from AW does not explain but mentions 6160 and 5130 only.
Needs to hire engineers who can fix things (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 29 at 0738, PPP at S9+30/40 about something in
year 1991, as WTWW reusage of 5085 is expanding, maybe all-night.
Still with the JBA carrier spurs plus/minus 12.9 kHz (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. Tnx to the reactivation of K17JN-D, Enid`s only TV station,
3ABN-TV, I was finally able to view their show about Adventist World
Radio, at 0430-0500 UT Dec 29. Due to the SW angle, I felt obliged to
take note of it, but as expected it was heavy on piety and light on
the facts. They imagine there is a Devil always trying to mess things
up. A disclaimer at the start that names had been changed, and the
people shown are not the real ones in the conversion tales told: in
other words, it`s all a dramatization even tho overlooking the
disclaimer you might think otherwise. There were three stories of
people who by chance happened to hear AWR and wound up being thrown
into the water. Very little about AWR itself, but a world map showed
stations everywhere, including all over China, which I find hard to
believe (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 29 t 0726, RV is VP S6/S8, JBA in HNL. Have
stuck here for quite a while; when back to 3945 which can harmonicize
to 7890 & 11835? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2171)

** ALASKA. Re: [WOR] HAARP Asteroid Bounce Experiment --- If I had
read thru the linked publicity about it first, I might not have
remarked about a publicity stunt. They indicate HF signals can
penetrate better below the surface than radar. Here`s more via IRCA
iog from Russ Edmunds Dec 27:

``Scientists plan to hit an asteroid with more than 9.6 million radio
waves from HAARP``
https://interestingengineering.com/science/hitting-an-asteroid-with-radio-waves
Hey, that`s a lot more impressive than ``9.6 MHz``! Yet the article
keeps referring to it as ``low-frequency`` rather than standard
scientific nomenclature, high-frequency. Low, only by comparison
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Wed Dec 28, LRA36 check via favorite
Argentine remote, shared with someones in Los Ángeles and Essen, finds
it S9 with song prélude at 1457 tune-in. 1501.5 standard canned s/on
with multi-lingual advisory that it`s monolingual, staff names; 1503
themesong, recitation and another song as I am distracted by
breakfast. 1513 live YLs as programa 38, last one of the 2022 cycle,
but I can`t make out whether there will be a break next few weeks as
likely. 1518.5 mentions 17 dic 1952 = base founding? Signal now fading
down, and chops off at 1520.7* never to return by 1540 when I quit.

Earlier I had also tried to get the webcast via
https://www.radionacional.com.ar/
Antarctica is at the bottom, appropriately of the drop-down at
Emisoras:
which goes to this but only an error message:
https://vmf.edge-apps.net/embed/live.php?streamname=sc_rad32-100131&autoplay=true

Also got this: ``Hi, Glenn: ANTARCTICA. This Wednesday‘s broadcast
which I‘ve heard via an Argentine SDR as usually popped up at 1456 UT
amid a typical LA song. Strength was quite strong until 1516 when the
signal disappeared unfortunately. It didn’t reappear until tune-out at
1540. Let‘s hope for a longer session this coming Saturday. Bye from
Germany, Joachim Kornek, Dortmund`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Dec 28 at 0724, no SWBC frequencies active on 4, 5, 6, 9, 10
MHz -- but the jammers against nothing on 5, 6, 7 and 9 MHz bands are
still pounding! Ivo Ivanov has concluded that the main Bauta site is
totally down, while some RHC frequencies attributed to Quivicán are
still running. Something`s very wrong at RadioCuba.

From 2334 Dec 28 I spot check some known RHC and CRI relay frequencies
at the NH remote: OFF: 11760, 6000, 15230, 13680, 11670; ON: 13650,
11850 suptorted, 5990 VG; algo on 9710 unseems Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Dec 28 at 2210, another day with no signal, no
loss, no English from egregious R. Cairo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 28 at 0728, JBA carrier, so R. Kiribati is on;
no other 9/kHz splits detected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13755, Dec 28 at 0727, RNZP is S9/+10; yet hardly
anything audible one band down on 11 MHz. Of course the S Hemisphere
part of the path is at high summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 28 at 0721, VON with S9/+10 of dead air. More
reliably on lately, if only they could figure out how to modulate it
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Dec 28 at 0745 UT, SW, 25-watt NDB at
StillWater, is back! After chex every day or night, had been missing
starting Dec 12. 350, RG at OKC, still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Dec 28 at 2315, Token English from REE about a
bill pending in congress to allow people to choose their gender of
record; and about Trans- and LGBTQ rights in general; how right wing
and Catholix are opposed; even some feminist groups. VG into NH SDR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.000+, Dec 28 after 2300, VOT English VG into UTwente,
but soon pumping fading caused by XJPBS carrier slightly different SAH
frequency, and almost as annoying as its modulation added later.
Approx. 2320-2330, `Weekly Commentary`, same one as heard before about
Scottish separatism. It may be weekly, but broadcast more than one day
per week. 2353 recheck, drifted up to 5960.002, signing off and a bit
of IS until cutoff at 2355* uncovering East Turkistan, std
denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2170 monitoring: confirmed UT Wednesday
December 28 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+32 into Missouri SDR.

Via Bill Tilford, WBCQ advises that the 7490 transmitter is
temporarily off the air, so its programming has been moved to 5130,
most of it before 0300 so not conflicting with Radio Angela. So that
means our next WOR should also be on 5130 instead of 7490:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [5130 instead temporarily]

Yes, it was: JBA carrier on 5130 direct; poor S8/9+10 and noisy into
VA SDR showing -21 Hz; but VG S9+5/15 into NH SDR at -14 Hz. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 5130-, UT Wed Dec 28 at 0100, WBCQ 7490 programming
temporarily here while the 7490- transmitter is out of order.
Confirmed as on sked, the South Sudan Messianic who wants to put a SW
station on air there, ``Operation Nehemiah Missions With Messianic
Rabbi William Levi``. Copy is tough because of his accent and some
overmodulation distortion. 7490 webcast was restored after dead air
there too, but will it still be running even tho SW is on 5130? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Dec 28 at 2216, WBCQ-6/WLCR is still/again off. No
twits from AW to explain this now nor 7490 downage (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 28 at 0722, JBA carrier reconfirming RV is still
here instead of 5040 or 3945 and harmonix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1610.65 kHz, Dec 28 at 0733, JBA carrier again as het to
1610.00 CHHA Toronto; I ask again, is anyone else hearing it? (Glenn
Hauser OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051, Dec 28 at 0726, S7/S9 open carrier still here. Ron
Howard has also been hearing it. Maybe not SWBC but an idle ute, such
as RTTY on standby (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
