Next World of Radio airing at 2200 on 5130, not 7490  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, December 28 2022

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.

That means our next WOR should also be on 5130 instead of 7490:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [5130 instead temporarily]
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** ALASKA. 9600, Dec 27 at 2204, sitting here in USB, blips cross the
frequency exactly once every two seconds, sounding just like an
ionosonde except more often. During this minute there is one extra
uncoördinated blip, but seriously doubt it`s an asteroid reflexion.
Surely radar wavelengths would be more effective; is this a publicity
stunt? Earlier chex at 1741 and 1908 heard nothing. This is a HAARP
experiment, monitored by many others in the WOR iog, directly and
remotedly, as explained here via Don Moman:

and here via Chris Mackerell:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 530, Dec 27 at 0707, `Clair de Lune` by Debussy, soon outro
as `Claro de Luna` by the Lawrence Welk orchestra! Surprised he edged
so close to classical. And ID as ``Radio Enciclopedia, la emisora de
música instrumental``. Some lite Spanish talk CCI under, likely a
Rebelde, two listed in WRTH 2022. CMBQ 530 is at Villa María CH.

Enciclopedia has a few other frequencies elsewhere, 670, 1280, 1310.
We generally consider its format EZL. R. Musical Nacional, CMBF is
much more widespread, but nothing compared to Rebelde absolutely
everywhere. Originally put on 530 to block R. Martí relayed for a
while from Turx & Caicos. Originally mixed in brief ``encyclopedic``
facts with the music, but I think quit that long ago, yet retained the
name (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 26 at 2032, no RHC on only frequency for first
English hour of the day, just as it was missing already at 1646. One
wonders if back in the RHC studios at the Radio Progreso building,
they care or even be aware of how screwed up are the transmissions out
of Bauta et al - the weakest but vital linx to axually reaching
listeners. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Dec 26 around 2130 direct, no signal from R. Cairo
in English; still zilch at 2159 check into UTwente. Likewise Dec 27 at
2237 onwards into UTwente. Something`s always amiss at Abis (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Dec 27 at 0711, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati
is audible tonight, and Gary Pence agrees it was on and making it
earlier to Hawaii SDRs. I do not hear any other 9/kHz splits (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15355, Dec 26 at 2025, jaunty song in French, chopped
off at 2029*. How rude: no sign-off, goodbye, outro, no announcement
at all. It`s AWR via Talata at 2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MONGOLIA [non]. And I do mean non: 5800, UT Tue Dec 27 at 0130, I
decide to listen to VOM relay by WRMI, but instead in English it`s
Radio Slovakia International, Xmas show! Now I see the WRMI skedgrid
dated Dec 21 shows at the top #8 on 5800 at 01-02 with System H, RTI
and RSI --- but the System H sked itself below, still dated Oct 21,
yet displays V of Mongolia at 0130-0200 Tue-Sat.

Harold Sellers had noticed mailbag repeats lately, so VOM may have
canceled or been canceled. Never expect anything to last, or WRMI
skeds to be consistent. Then I find that the latest and only VOM file
on the server is dated September 19! No wonder it`s time to quit. I`ve
saved it for posterity but not sure where to put its 44 MB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 27 at 0714, VON at S9+10/20 but JBM, so its
sporadic activity remains pointless. Something`s astonishing at Abuja
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME. 13750.063, Mon Dec 26 at 2034, JBA signal. Aoki shows
it`s VOA Hausa, daily except Sundays. Pinheira is one of USAGM`s most
successful and reliable offfrequenciers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9675, Dec 26 at 2050 I`m listening to some nice ME
music during my dozenap, fair sufficient signal direct, but chops off
abruptly at 2057*. Aoki shows SBC in Turkish at 1755-2057 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Dec 26 at 2300, REE English entirely of obscure to
us Xmas carols from Spanish regions, dispensing with any news as Amy
says it`s pre-recorded for their Boxing Day off. Día de Boxeo? Don`t
get hit. Turkey declines to compete by keeping 5960 silent (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Dec 26 at 2300, NO signal from VOT English into
UTwente, clear frequency after BBC OMAN to 2259.5*. I keep monitoring
and by 2312, CNR1 relay by XJPBS, EAST TURKISTAN, std denunciation, is
S8/S9 alone on frequency and Chinese continues thru rest of hour; as
VOT cedes the N American Mon 2300 audience --- me and who else? to
simulEnglish from SPAIN, 9690, q.v. This also negates the chance for
extra German at 2400.

5960.003+, Dec 27 at 2253, VOT IS already running into UTwente at
S9+20/30, overriding BBCWS English via OMAN, with V. of Tuerkiye IDs
interspersed. Other days, VOT has deferred to BBC, waiting to
crash-start at *2300, when now the TS and s/on with sked commences.
Good modulation level but some hum. And there is still an
understation, must be XJPBS Urumqi modulating earlier than usual from
the land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other
Moslems. 2301 news about natural gas in the Black Sea; complaints
about Anti-Turk propaganda in Paris by the PKK; China relaxing
zero-COVID policy; NK UAVs wiolated SK airspace; Serbia vs Kosovo;
lots of holiday international passenger traffic thru Istanbul airport.
2310 Review of Turkish Press about nat/gas discoveries in Black Sea;
PKK propaganda in Paris; Sa`udi investment in Turkey. 2312,
multi-lingual ID reel filler. 2315, Weekly Commentary by Jonathan ---
Harvey, a journalist who focuses on ME/NAf, but not now: about
Scottish independence, is a breakup of UK possible? 2328 music break.
2338 finally another talk feature, Turkey`s Geo-something? about a
``neat dish`` whose name I can`t discern. 2340 more songs until 2353
sign/off with jumbled schedule again. 2355 IS starts playing. 2356
interspersing German IDs twice a minute, ``Hier ist die Stimme
Tuerkiye``. Still going at 0000 UT Dec 28, 5+1 timesignal and opening
German citing earlier time and frequency, Nachrichten. Hier wir gehen
again, fuer haulang? Zeit zu finalisieren dieses rapport. Achtung!
Kaput zu 0005.5. Uncovering XJPBS at S8 also on 5960.003+ but
reloaded, shows 5960.000+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2170 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
December 27 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, very steady S9+20 direct; Jeff still
starts his ``The world is in turmoil`` commercial between the ID and
WOR. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Like our website, a noncommercial service for which financial support
is appreciated. Thanks this week to Gerald T. Pollard, Raleigh NC, who
sends a generous quarterly seasonal check for Winter Solstice to:
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to:
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Dec 27 at 0132, this WRMI-3 is S9+20 of dead air! And
still so at 0156 recheck. Sked shows `Circuit Rider` is supposed to
air at 0130-0200 UT Tue-Fri. I`m fairly certain it`s about
gospelhuxtering rather than electronix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 27 circa 0030, the real WTWW is on with PPP, and
at 0056 check, still the JBA carrier spurs plus/minus 12.9 kHz, as I
check them for George who also tells me that Ted had not even
registered frequencies for #1 transmitter, altho that was what SFA was
paying him to run (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 27 at 0715, R. Vanuatu with JBA music at S8/S9.
Quite reliable here lately rather than on better-heard 11835 = 3 x
3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA 9/kHz split MW carrier search, Dec 27
at 0322 UT: only 684 & 855, Spain the usual suspects. No others in
quick scan of entire MW band, but NAmQRM splash is fierce.

Except there is a het upon CHHA 1610 Toronto, about 1610.65. Could be
local birdie but if so never noted before. Or an off-frequency TIS/HAR
somewhere on this otherwise `clear` channel, or a pirate. Except for
CHRN Montréal, which I never hear, exactly blocked on the way by CHHA.
Anyone else with anything on 1610.65? Not until 0515 UT do I check it
on Missouri SDR: CHHA only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re my 5051.0 open carrier Dec 26, Ron Howard replies:
``Hi Glenn - I also heard the open carrier on 5051.0, on Dec 26. Then
on Dec 27, checked at 0737 UT and noted: 5020 - SIBC; 5025 & 5040 - No
Cuba; 5051.0 - UNID weak carrier still here! Listened for a while and
heard no audio; 5055.0 - Radio 4KZ (Australia) still on this
frequency. Ron California`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 9455, Mon Dec 26 at 1651, S9/+10 Chinese dominant,
vs another Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jamming vs RFA SAIPAN; heavy fast SAH
and at least one more signal buried with music, WRMI TOMBS, sounds the
same as 9395 and WWCR 9980. I`ve always been amazed that FCC is fine
with WRMI vs jammed USAGM on 9455, per Aoki sked: MWF 16-17 & daily
19-21 Saipan, 21-22 Kuwait. However, Dec 26 at 1921 check, WRMI is
alone on 9455; and 9395 is OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 26 at 0704, only Cuban channel still on but S8/9+10
of dead air. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 & 11760, Dec 26 at 1646, the only two RHC frequencies
supposed to run past 1600 are absent. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 26 at 0657, VON is S9+10/20 but JBM - maybe
hearing some drumming IS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 6950, Dec 26 at 1655, AM signal cutting on and off with
sports talk - must be fifth harmonic of local 1390 KCRC. Yes, it is
//. Was tuning pirate band just in case on a holiday. Have not had any
problem with KCRC harmonix in years beyond 2780 = X2 always a weak
distorted. Same sound now on 4170 = X3, nothing on 5560 = X4.
Something`s loose at KCRC, and it`s not especially windy now.

Another check at 1943: 6950 & 4170 still like before; nothing on 5560
or 8340, the X4 and X6, but a weak blob on 9730 = X7. Harmonic
panoplies tend to favor all-odd or all-even ones (Glenn Hauser, Enid,

** TURKEY. 5960, Dec 25 at 2300, VOT in English, VG signal into
Maryland SDR but undermodulated; likewise at 2348 check direct.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2170 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday December 25 at 2100 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only,
S9+10/20 into nearby Noale SDR; again with ripple SAH from another
carrier, Romania? but no modulated QRM; that`s gone before the end at
2129. Following until 2100 some anonymous music show from Wales
produced for IRRS.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 26 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8 but
noisy. However does not start with self-imposed overriding noise
burst. Hope that has been repaired for good.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 26 from 0402.7 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160
minus 62 Hz = 6159.938 into Missouri SDR, S9+5/15, after JL running
late and ``11-L Radio signing off``. Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 7490v, Sun Dec 25 at 2310, WBCQ in `UBMP` featuring some
naughty Xmas tunes. I try to listen to WBCQ webcast: it`s running but
just barely modulated! Not enough to hear with all my volumes at max.
Likewise for `Le Show` at 0000 Dec 26. So forces me to listen on SW,
direct or via remotes, like S9+10/15 into Maryland. Rechecked later,
stream still JBM past 0500, like that for 6+ hours?! Direct reception
was sufficient for `Marion`s Attic` until 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 6160-, Dec 26 at 0703, WBCQ S9 with rock music, certainly
not usual TOMBS after-hours of Area 51 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330-, Dec 26 at 0707, WBCQ-6 SuperStition off the air, and
no Cuban spy either on Monday. Still no WLCR at 1717. What`s the
problem now? Surely not still too windy. Closest NWS info to
Monticello is Houlton AP where it`s west at 14 gusting to 24 mph
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, Dec 26 at 0433, WRMI S9+25/30 with news about Ukraine
by computer voice which mispronounces some words; 0435 outro as from
Alexander on WRMI Legends. Items seem current rather than legendary
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) WRMI vs USAGM and jamming: see CHINA [and

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 26 at 0658, JBA carrier from R Vanuatu; while
Ron Howard says ``non-stop listening 0640-0840 UT, Dec 26. Outstanding
reception the whole time; nicely readable; probably my best ever
reception. My audio posted at bit.ly/3YQ7SqE --- Ron California``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1017 kHz, Dec 26 at 0712 UT, JBA carrier I would like to
think be TONGA already post-sunset, but no lower 9/kHz splits, not
even 846 Kiritimati which could be off. At 0715, unusually detect a
few more at topend, 1503, 1539, 1584, unlikely Pacificans. Only TA
country all four have in common is Spain, 5 or 10 kW synchros of RNE5
or SER. But then there is Spain on most frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051.0, Dec 26 at 0659, open carrier of S8/S9 at this
strange spot, while NO US or Cuban signals above 5000, and 4980 WRMI
also absent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 25 at 0205, RHC English, S9+45 but with huge
humbuzz; // 6165 is S9/+20 with less mod and less hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 25 at 0811, RHC in Sunday Esperanto! S7/S9. First
time confirmed, at least by me, first airing this season; could be on
6100. You never know which 6 MHz channel will be on this late, if any.
Also Esp`o after 1600 on usual 11760 & 15140. Despite announcements,
third airing may be at 2130 on 13680 or somewhere. Just before or
after 1600, other RHCs were dead airing and/or turning off: 9710,
9535, 15230, 13700. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** FRANCE. 15185, Dec 25 at 1605, S7/9+10 but JBM. EiBi shows at
1600-1630, clandestine Oromiya Public Media in TIG via Issoudun.
Standard remark about sites not bothering with modulation. Something`s
incredulous at Issoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDONESIA. 7289.960, Dec 25 at 0802, JBA carrier, likely my first
capture finally of RRI Nabire, on north coast of New Guinea, which Ron
Howard hears just about every night but on 7289.94 as of Dec 23 with
both Islamic and Xmas stuff, in any case violating Separation of
Mosque/Church and State. Timespan varies widely from somewhat before
0800 until blocked at 0931, but often off much earlier. Now it`s
slightly stronger than the Vanuatu 7260 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** IRAN [non]. 5829.9 approx., Dec 25 at 0203, JBA carrier, no doubt
the only station on ``5830`` anywhen per Aoki, Iran International TV
audio, clandestine via Tashkent, UZBEKISTAN, in the absence of any
WTWW-1, all the way from 1330 to 0530, and always off-frequency-minus
not shown by Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Dec 25 at 0015, The Mighty KBC via Nauen,
GERMANY, for the last time. I just tried it at UTwente and heavy mix
with E Turkistan CCCCCCI. Also caught the very last minute at 0159
direct, S9+20 and no QRM now. Last thing they did was appeal for more
sponsors. From Jan 1 to be on WRMI 5950, Sundays at 22-24, time
collision with 7490 WBCQ shows Marion`s Attic and Uncle Bill`s Melting
Post. UB says he does not mind the competition, not going to move and
likes being adjacent to Harry Shearer`s `Le Show` on 7490v from 0000
UT Mondays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.934, Dec 25 at 0806, JBA carrier, no doubt VON, first
time detected in more than a week on signature off-frequency;
nominally from *0555 used to be bigsig here. Should be in English
08-10. So Nigeria is not yet a defunct SWBC country, but trying hard
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, Dec 25 at 0157, S7/S9 of Santa Clausish
``ho3, Merry Christmas`` in a loop mixed with a wide variety of SFX,
baaas, bleats, other animal and bird noises, farts? or fake farts,
over & over & over. 0202 also some uteblaapps add to cacophony. Even
worse at 0208 but off at 0230 check. The only pirate activity heard on
Xmas eve -- unID by me, but reported by no one on HFU! (Glenn Hauser,

** PERU [and non]. 4775, Dec 25 at 0145, JBA carrier vs CODAR
swirshes, presumed R. Tarma. Once upon a year, Xmas eve was a fertile
time for Latin American DX as stations would stay on late or even
temporarily reactivate idle SW transmitters which still worked. Not
any more: the only LA signals, little more than carriers on 60m are
this and usual: 4885 Brasils, 4940 Colombizuela, 4985 Brasil. Plus
Cuba of course on 5025 but not on 4765 or 5040 which ought to be on
now. None at all on 3 or 2 MHz bands. Maybe, better luck, NY Eve?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 7265, Dec 25 at 0210, S7/S9 of dead air, broadcast or ham?
VOT in Spanish scheduled. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 420 MCW kHz, Dec 25 at 0750 UT, PK, 25-watt ND beacon at
Olathe/Herbb KS, on the edge of the persistent local noise span
roughly 370-420 peaking circa 395 obscuring any other beacon DX in
that range. Olathe is a SW suburb of KC (Glenn Hauser, oK, WOR)

** U S A. 486 AM kHz, Dec 25 at 0231, no signal direct into any of my
antennas and receivers from WI2XLQ, commemorative experimental station
in Forest VA. But via Maryland SDR, audible S7 with lots of storm
crashes, none closer than Bermuda or central Mexico. Frequency offset
fluxuates minus 75/78 Hz, = 485.925/922. ``O Holy Night``, from 0626
W & M brief announcements I miss and more violin music. 0643 more
announcements, WI2XLQ ID, in honor of Fessenden 1906. Explained here:

``On Christmas Eve, 1906, Canadian inventor, experimenter, and
entrepreneur Reginald Fessenden claimed to have made his first voice
-- and music -- broadcast from Brant Rock, Massachusetts, although his
account of the event over the years has been disputed. Nonetheless,
Brian Justin, WA1ZMS, of Forest, Virginia, will make his annual
program recreation on 486 kHz to commemorate Fessenden's

Justin will broadcast for 24 hours beginning at 1800 UTC on December
24, with a repeat transmission on New Year's Eve, beginning at 1800
UTC, as Fessenden was reported to have done on both nights in 1906.

Justin will transmit on 486 kHz, under authority of his FCC Part 5
Experimental License WI2XLQ, using equipment substantially more modern
than Fessenden's gear. Justin will use a home-brew setup to achieve
Heising modulation similar to what was used in amplitude modulation
(AM) transmissions during World War I. Justin explained that
Fessenden's transmitter was a high-speed alternator, a predecessor to
the Alexanderson Alternator still in use today at the historic
Grimeton Radio Station in Sweden. Modulation then was achieved using a
carbon microphone, but Justin will use a laptop computer for his audio
broadcast. Justin said there is a cult-like following of amateur radio
and shortwave listeners who tune in for the annual broadcast. Justin
has been licensed since 1976 and is an ARRL Life Member.``

486, Dec 25 at 0749 UT, my 100-ft W/E longwire gets a JJBBA carrier on
486, so probably that. Unsaid how much power is running. Also heard
last year only via remotes (Glenn Hauser, not cult-like, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7283 USB, Dec 25 at 0211, contrary hams in USB instead of
customary LSB on 40m, K9WT ith huge S9+25 signal, tech discussion with
JBA contact K9FP as they finally ID by 0215. QRZ.com:
K9WT flag USA, JOHN A VENDELY, 2825 Hard Way Lane, Malabar, FL

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2170 monitoring: Bill Tilford
explains about WBCQ 5130 missing at 0500 UT Sat: ``All three "classic"
WBCQ freqs (5130, 6160, 7490) tripped off some time after 0400. FTIOM
was cut short on 5130. Bad storm action, but everything back up

Unlike last week when off the air, confirmed UT Sunday December 25 at
0030 on WRMI 7780, as always starting with ~10 seconds of self-imposed
noise burst atop my opening, quick pause and one more second of it. A
minute earlier I found 7780 to be JBA into Missouri SDR, so now I`m on
Maurice, Louisiana, where it`s S7/S8 but strangely lo-fi audio: narrow
bandwidth, sounds exactly the same at AM and AMNarrow settings;
somewhat better at SAS = synch with fake stereo.

Also confirmed UT Sunday December 25 ending at 0417 on WA0RCR, 1860
AM, Wentzville MO, so started way early circa 0348! Various preceding
ham shows must have run short or absent for holiday. Nominal WOR time
as Vern always announces, is from 0415. Next:

** U S A. 7780, Dec 25 at 0800, WRMI presumably starting V of
Indonesia relay on VP signal, but I hear the same 10+second noise
burst at first that infests WOR transmissions on 7780 WRMI-13.
However, different Systems are scheduled, C at 0800, D at 0030. BTW,
7730 seems off again, no trace despite 24h schedule // 15770 toward
Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, Dec 25 at 1557, now this WRMI frequency is absent;
still TOMBS on 9455; 9955 also off despite supposed Sunday extension.
Something`s odd at Okee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330-, Dec 25 at 1558, WBCQ-6 is still/again off; too windy
yet, or what? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 770 kHz, Dec 25 at 0217 UT, I hit here on a routine
bandscan, without really trying, KATL again, ad for M&A`s Convenience
Store in Miles City. At first I thought it was Emily`s. There is an
M&A chain, but further research leads to M&H in Miles City! Good they
have lots of local ads. Montanan must still be stuck on 10 kW ND day
facility, accidentally or deliberately? dominating 770: 50 kW KKOB NM
nulls thisaway toward WABC and 50 kW ND WABC too far, beyond 2
megameters. Note to eds.: ``thisaway`` is American slang, not two
separate words (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 970, Dec 25 at 0222 UT, plug for unitedchurch.ca - so a
Canadian? NO, not a single one on 970. Seems to be
indigenous-orientated, but I wonder outgrowth of which sect? Or
deliberately nondenominational, Of a few USA RELs on 970, could merely
be our closest, KCFO Tulsa. But detailed websked shows the nauseating
Sebastian Gorka now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1100 kHz, WCGA in Woodbine, SE Georgia scheduled for a
special DX test Dec 24 at 0500-0700 UT. I heard it last time in April,
but check again and record for a QSL. 0608 tune in, tone sweeps upward
audible under WTAM Cleveland, even before I null it on the rotatable
DX-398 with internal antenna only. WTAM is 50 kW ND; WCGA is a 10 kW
ND daytimer. 0609, continuous 1 kHz tone; 0610 sweeps upward. I record
at 0618-0623 and later can just barely make out Morse code VVVs and at
0621, WCGA several times. Here`s my 2-minute clip I will be submitting
as evidence for eQSL:
It`s most readable around halfway in, followed by continuous tone. So
that`s it. Tnx for the test. Another one is coming at same hours Dec
25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

With seasonal greetings, this report dispatched at 0019 UT Dec 25
