** AUSTRIA. 11880, March 20 at 0603, S5-S8 music with flutter. Not //
6000 so not RHC error. Aoki shows AWR in Arabic via Moosbrunn at
0600-0700. With the First Day of Spring! overnight hi-latitude MUFs
beginning to perk up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13130, March 20 at 1458, JBA carrier with Doppler flutter,
CNR1 jammer; also a tad better with music on 13020 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 11660, March 20 at 1459, Chinese and VOA closing
with YDD, S9+10 via THAILAND, mix with other music from CNR1 jammer,
timesignal 1500 and off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, March 20 at 0641, HC English VG now after France/Japan
collision until 0630. Also still on good 6100, and less good 6060 with
hum. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, March 20 at 1456, weak music S7-S9 with Doppler
flutter. Hooray, KBSWR so-called N American service is beginning to
show on First Day of Spring at 1533 UT. Their totally bonkers
frequency management keeps it here yearound, lost in space all winter
but maybe somewhat listenable by midsummer: 13-14 English, 14-15
Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, March 20 at 0640, XEPPM with fado music amid its
eclectic, you-never-know-what format; S9+10 sufficient but wish they
could keep the modulation louder (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 1395 kHz, March 20 at 1802, R. Svoboda still here,
via ARMENIA; S9+10 but heavy ACI unless narrowed from much stronger
1386 // Russian via Radio Baltic Waves, LITHUANIA, monitoring via
Khimki, Russia SDR. Ironically this MW funded by Shortwaves for
Freedom. 1395 remains on past 1900 switching to TOMBS cult, as IDed at
1926 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, March 20 at 1858 tune-in via Khimki, Russia
SDR, R. Svoboda already on the air like MW 1395, here S9+15/20 atop
presumed VOA Thailand which goes off 9370 by 1900 leaving novosti from
R. Svoboda in the clear. Wonder how early on air today, 1830? to
compensate for late 1930 start yesterday? Still suspected Gavar,
ARMENIA site like 1395. By 1935 some singing is interspersed on 9370
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K O G B A N I [non]. 13865, March 20 at 0608, English news about
Ukraine, mostly American accents; could it be VOA? Of course not! Aoki
shows BBC via VATICAN during this hour; and also 13865 05-06 via
Madagascar. With the First Day of Spring! overnight hi-latitude MUFs
beginning to perk up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 28482 USB, March 19 at 2218, PY1JDX, clear fonetix, among a
few trans-equatorials poking thru on 10m. from:
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/py1jdx

``PY1JDX Brazil flag Brazil
Paulo de Tarso M. Bastos, Rua J. Henrique Cordeiro, 70,b.2 ap.1406,
Barra da Tijuca - Rio de Janeiro, RJ 22631450, Brazil

PY1JDX N2EWM 2022-03-19 22:14 10m USB 55 55

My QTH is on Barra da Tijuca (Neighborhood), Rio de Janeiro (City),
RJ (the same name State/province), Brazil. It is on a condominium
apartment building, where it is quite hard to install big antennas.
For that reason I can satisfactory operate only on 15, 12, 10 meters,
and higher frequencies bands.

Meu QTH é na Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brasil. É em um
prédio de condomínio de apartamentos, é assim um local difícil de se
instalar grande antenas, sendo assim só posso operar satisfatoriamente
em 15, 12, 10 metros, e bandas de frequencias mais altas.

My HF antenas are a vertical (5.5 meter long) and a Dual Band Moxon
(10 & 6 meters). As antenas de HF são uma vertical (de 5m de
comprimento) e uma Moxon de duas bandas (10 & 6 metros).

Yaesu FT857D is the primary radio. I always operate with an SDR
receiver (SDRPlay), a workstation and CAT control of my radio. Meu
radio principal e um Yaesu FT857D. Sempre opero com um receptor SDR
(SDRplay), uma estaçao de trabalho (PC) e controle remoto do radio

[senior RF systems engineer freelance; formerly associate professor,
UNISAT; satellite systems engineer, Star One; test engineer at
Embratel]`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 19 at 2212, RHC S9+30 with hum, French
undermodulated. 11850 is also on JBM presumably Spanish. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT [and non]. 9909.803, March 19 at 2226, surprise! Radio Cairo
has bumped up 10.0 kHz for the scheduled 2115-2245 English, pointless
since it`s still the totally broken modulation. First direct at S9/+20
then Synch measured by UTwente at S9+30. That leaves 9900 open for the
China/Taiwan radio war including Doppler jiggling signal.

9909.803 does not go off at 2245 but horrible noisy carrier stays on
and by 2259 there is *still* CCCCCCI also on 9910, this time China vs
RFA Tibetan via Kuwait at 23-24 only. 2300 timesignal and East Is Red
// on 9900 & 9910. Then I notice that UTwente synchs it now on
9910.002. Cairo noise stays on until 2359.7* with some modulation of
unknown language but could be Arabic imaginatively scheduled from
2330. Does not anyboss in charge ever turn on a radio and hear how it
sound??

Look at this: A22 coordination shows a bunch of different frequencies
all still on 9 MHz band, but not including 9910; 2115 English
supposedly on 9440 which has been the distorted Albanian frequency at
1500; that goes to 9410; playing random selexion games?:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A22&broadc=ERU
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, Sat Mar 19 at 1900, NO signal from the new
secret relay of R. Svoboda in Russian: had been coming on with a
carrier overlap, immediately VOA Pashto close via Thailand after brief
YDD at 1900. Still nothing several minutes later. But Manuel Méndez,
Spain says Svoboda cut on at *1930, and then I hear it at 1943, clear
S9+25 into Khimki, Russia SDR, but clatter QRM into UTwente, not as
bad as yesterday. Off again by 2000*. Maybe Shortwaves for Freedom was
paid up today for only half an hour from Armenia? Did not check 1395
kHz before 1900, assuming it would still be there (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2130 monitoring: confirmed new time
March 19 of Saturday 1930 on WRMI 15770, VG S9+8 into Maryland SDR.
This hour is officially on System B, which most of the time feeds
9955, so hoped would also be webcast, but that had fill music, nor the
BS which remained on SW 9955.

Also confirmed Sat Mar 19 at 1929 already underway on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, VG into nearby KB0FX SDR, about 2 minutes into so started slightly
early circa 1927 - this does not mean the evening repeat will be
earlier than 0315.

Also confirmed Sat Mar 19 at 2030 on additional time of WRN webcast to
N America; should also be at 2100 on European stream.

As warned, not confirmed UT Sun Mar 20 at 0030 on WRMI 7730 as that
transmitter`s antenna is down for repairs, so off the air but hoped to
return by Tuesday. Wish they could hook up to another antenna in
meantime even if wrong azimuth.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 20 until 0355 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
Wentsville MO, so started about 0326, S9+10 into nearby SDR with some
storm crashes. Next:

1330 UT Sunday WMRI Europe via Ch 292 Germany 9670
2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW [another cancellation]

** U S A. 15770, Sat Mar 19 at 1902, WRMI with English discussion
about Ukraine, presumably R. Prague International as scheduled.
However, refers to ``now`` being in sixth day of invasion, so recorded
more than a biweek ago! Same also heard on only webcast from WRMI,
which is of System B, ordinarily what is fed into 9955 SW, except this
19-20 hour of 15770.

WORLD OF RADIO has just been added to the schedule Saturdays at 1930
on 15770, so I`m expecting it also to be webcast --- but it`s not,
rather fill music. Meanwhile what about 9955? It does remain on air,
with TOMBS before and after 1930 into Maryland SDR.

What then at 2000? English gospel huxter on 15770, which would be
Yeshua Prayer & Praise now from System H; TOMBS on 9955, and something
in Arabic on webcast. System B grid shows this hour as internet only,
and with blank spaces (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, March 19 at 1415 and 1504 chex, NO
signals from LRA36 into four Brasil SDRs this Saturday (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA [non]. 11900, March 19 at 1457, American gospel huxter who
makes those gulping extra syllables after some words, soon outro as
Christ Gospel Broadcast, Jeffersonville, Indiana over Amazing Grace
theme, S8/9+10. 1459 closing as Bible Voice Broadcasting, address in
Ontario to 1500*. Do they say transmitted from where? Of course not!
Aoki shows Saturdays only from 1400 via Nauen, GERMANY, but for where?
250 kW, 102 degrees to CIRAF 41 says HFCC, i.e. Pakistan, India, Sri
Lanka, Bangladesh. Having destroyed RCI, Canada must be so proud to be
represented by this on SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13020, March 19 at 1358, S5-S6 with flutter music, only such
signal circa 13 MHz. Tnx? to DST I am awake early enough to check CNR1
jammer frequencies before many of them quit at 1400. This and the next
one are longstanding jammed Sound of Hope channels.

13530, March 19 at 1359 is *much* stronger S7-S9 with heavy flutter //
13020 CNR1 jammer song, Chinese announcement, 5+1 timesignal and off
1400*.

13830, March 19 at 1401, Chinese with rumble and flutter, S6-S8. After
1400 this is jammed VOA Tibetan via Thailand (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 17745, March 19 at 1450, S9+10, 1455 mentions BBC,
football, Ukraine, in SW Asian language? Close but it`s NE African,
Somali via UAE site until 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2130 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
March 19 at 1700 UT on WRN webcast; as despite timeshift in NAm
target, does not change to 1600 until irrelevant England & Europe go
on DST March 27. New sked shows repeat Sat at 2030, while the
simulEurope at 1700 repeats at 2100, etc. Next on SW, MW:

1930 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE
[NEW: altho not 9955, sked shows this hour is on System B, so check if
also webcast. Same semihour as VOA `Flashpoint Ukraine`, M-F only.
9955 does not show during that hour on any system, or
self-contradictory, maybe TOMBS if on the air at all, or not?]

1930vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
0030 UT Sunday WRMI 7730 to WNW [but 7730 down until Tuesday?]

WOR)

** U S A. (12160), March 19 at 1700-1729 UT Sat, WWCR-2 webcast of
`Talking Machine Show` as time-shifted an hour earlier. Mostly singing
as always but at 1708 axual talk, ancient recording of an auxion
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. 11945, March 18 at 1350, VG S9/+10 discussion about word
games improving cognition, seems reasonable but winds up invoking
Jesus. Of course it`s RBA with the Ozish accents, closing before 1400*
ID and to resume at 1330 tomorrow for India -- way offbeam over here
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6165, March 18 at 0611, RHC English is back here,
but about equal level to Arabic! which is NHK via FRANCE at 0600-0630,
adding up to S9+20. But RHC English in the clear on 6060, 6100.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 5910, Friday March 18 at 1730 another check for the
weekly Channel 1 TV audio clandestine from Canoga Park, believed via
Uzbekistan: into UTwente, no signal promptly but carrier with hum on
at *1730:28, S9/+10 and cut on modulation bit of music at 1732:07,
soon YL talk in presumed Farsi; may have mentioned ``megahertz``? Like
last week, not only starts late but ends late, running past 1800 until
1802 cut mod, 1802:15* cut carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. 7290, Friday March 18 at 1900:49, IRRS modulation
starts on Bulgacarrier already on, rock music which must be Radio City
as expected pre-empting other programming on 3rd Friday of month
including WOR at 1915; occasional hyper DJ such as at 1910. Usual ACI
from 7295 ChiCom.

1323 kHz, AM Italia, Villa Estense with same instead of WOR but heavy
CCI from Romania`s ethnic German minority service also playing music
at 1906 March 18; as heard by Noale SDR near AM Italia (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350 MCW kHz, March 18 at 0623 UT, cannot copy any ID from
RG, 400 watt NDB at Will RoGers World Airport, OKC, just the carrier,
unusual. This one has persisted while PN, EI and SW are AWOL, tho PN
just came back, q.v. RG ID is there at 1817 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, March 18 at 0620 UT, 25-watt ND beacon PN at
PoNca City is finally resuscitated! Had been silent since February 23.
Also still on at 1811 check (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR) See U S A

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, March 18 at 1903, R. Svoboda probably via
Armenia, but with quite a racket QRM - jamming or feed or transmission
or local QRM to UTwente SDR or SDR own problem? I then check 9370 via
Izhevsk, Russia SDR and find it clear! 1905 R. Svoboda ID and English
blurt ``murderous dictator``. If it be deliberate jamming, by skip
zone it`s bad in Holland but not at all in that part of Russia! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Friday March 18 at 2300, REE English succeeds today,
VG, and almost as good on 11940, 12030 into Maryland SDR; even 11685
is sufficient with slight RTTY QRM. In A-22 from March 27, 17855
replaces 9690 with quite different propagation, 15520 ex-12030. 2309
today`s feature is about the ILO and COVID, seems a rerun (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, March 18 at 2300, VOT English to us is
absent today, no signal even unto UTwente, nor at 2324 check when
nothing but EAST TURKISTAN, XJPBS Xinjiang in Chinese, land of ChiCom
imperialist genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems.

6125, however, next broadcast is poorly audible at 0440 March 19, hum
and undermodulated thin-voiced YL, music, into Ohio SDR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7780, March 19 at 0508 tune-in, Ukrainian Radio hour
via WRMI is in English with very rapid news summary until 0510 back to
UU. Is it safe to assume there will not be another English segment
later in hour? Need to catch it from 0500 opening whether English
start immediately, VG S9+15 into Ohio SDR I still have running
conveniently while at the computer completing this lengthy report
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 407 MCW kHz, March 18 at 0621, HRU, 25-watt ND beacon at
Herington KS is finally copiable vs slightly diminished local
neighborhood high noise level. For weeks could only detect the carrier
of one of my closer day & night signals, altho the storm noise level
is higher, maybe an inverse relationship? Also at 1813 JBA. Noise
peaking circa 395 kHz altho slightly diminished, not enough to
audiblize two other KS beacons (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18155.9 USB, March 18 at 1819, W1AW, the ARRL station in
Newington CT operated by Nick making contacts, slightly off-frequency
- or no such thing within hambands, but odd (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2130 monitoring: since the UT
Friday 0130 broadcast has been canceled by WRMI, first airing is now
0330 UT Friday on 5985, which just signs on at that bottom-of-the-hour
time; in the run-up announced repeatedly as ``top-of-the-hour`` by the
clueless BBB. Unfortunately aimed south, March 18 as usual VP here.
Best signal should be grabbed in Colombia but no active Kiwis there
now, let alone Bonaire. Boca Ratón FL is too far for groundwave, too
close for skywave. Other Caribbean, S American sites are not getting
listenable signal if any, nor even Maryland. Best results are directly
off the back at a reasonable distance to Athens GA S8-S9 with fading
but less noise than stronger Knoxville TN S9+10. They all need USB or
AM-narrow to avoid Cuban jamming bleed from 5980.

9955, now with DST, WOR is to resume on WRMI at 1430 Friday --- but
it`s off the air! Confirmed anyway on webcast. Still off at 1809
check, unknown when resumed but going circa 2300.

Also confirmed UT Saturday March 19 at shifted time of 0130 on WRMI
9395, S9+20 into Maryland SDR, but fading way down by 0157 check.

Also confirmed UT Saturday March 19 from 0359.8 on R. Angela WBCQ
4790. This time I`ve settled on the WB8CXO remote in Ohio, S9/+10 and
not too much whine except in fades, no CODAR, but sporadic uteblaaps.

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Mar 19 at 0000, new hour-earlier time for
`AAAWWW` on WBCQ webcast, SW not even checked. Not a repeat. Mostly
monolog by Allan: first arguing with Angela over whether her mike be
on. Temp today was 90F, now just heard some thunder with lightning
[yes, Blitzortung shows storm line right over FL]. ``Radio strikes
back`` against the ills of the age. Some dickhead has been jamming
7490 during Hal Turner, says has had jamming before, which is close to
being treason, punishable by death.

We are now in Cold War 2.0. SW stations are becoming more important.
Could Classic BCQ broadcast to Russia, Ukraine? Not really with
antennas for N America. SuperStition could do it but not sure whether
WLC is going to. Needs to upgrade other transmitters to 100 kW, and
has started a gofundme. Still charges same rates as when signed on in
1998 since most programmers could not afford the real cost. Will add
more programs before/after the Radio Angela 2-hour block on 4790. See
website for schedule of that [NO, it is still not on there, as I
check:
http://wbcq.com/schedule/index.php?fn=sked&freq=4790
which still shows nothing but Dead Brother Scare!]

Bill Tilford also tells him that, so Allan calls for Larry Will,
webmaster, to get with it. Apparently Allan doesn`t inspect his own
website very often. Allan says he is ``always upfront, doesn`t hold
anything back``, e.g. from the winter cold in Maine he ``almost died``
which is why they operate remotely from Deland of Fla, depending on
their great staff back in Maine. A&A hold a daily lunch-hour Soviet on
the porch to discuss station and marital issues, recommended.

`BCQ should be around for years; it`s totally owned by A&A, debt- and
mortgage-free. Their cellphones are on 24/7 like the broadcast
business in case there is an emergency.

0043 finally datestamp as 18th of March YOOLF 2022, from Studio 9
where it`s 78 degrees, humidity 70% and rising, and 0044 introduces
`Angela`s Angle`, for her own commentary/rant -- but she is not
prepared to render it. They had a great St Patrick`s party last night
at a neighbor`s, best corned beef he had ever had, breaking his mostly
vegetarian diet.

Fishing around for reading glasses which both of them need; to refer
to a Radio World article by Rick Wagner about a Denon TU68? radio from
the 90s which had CQUAM AM stereo; and how great AM sound can be if
bandwidth allowed up to 9 kHz rather than 3. That might give AM radio
a new lease on life. At BCQ they push the AM bandwidth on SW as far as
they can with the 5 kHz limit.

0054 to email. Goal is to raise $ 10 million in order to buy and
preserve operational some other SW facilities [not including WHRI, I
assume]. Ultimately maybe an endowment, privately owned, NOT
governmental. Guess what: someone else tells him the donate button on
website does not work either, nor does it yet show gofundme. Larry?
0059 prayer; running late again, joining Hal Turner when he has
already started at 0101 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, March 18 at 1902, quick check of WRMI via UTwente:
poor but in English, presumably still back with R. Prague after
Wednesday-only test of RFPI in Russian. But that`s now on the RFPI
skedgrid as Wed only rather than daily at 1900-1930 on 15770 within
the otherwise mostly-9955, blue-green System B sked! RFPI already has
several 1-hour blox, presumably French, but the only 15 minute one, UT
Fri 0145-0200 blowing away the first airing of WOR, is now suffixed UA
- meaning UkrAine? Altho we thought it was in Rusky Yazik (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. On that `CBS4` Miami interview about WRMI, Jeff White said
they have fourteen 100-kW transmitters. However, WRTH 2022 shows 12 x
100 kW, and 1 x 50 kW. There are never 14 transmitters on the air at
once per the skedgrid; but all are running for at least a few hours.
In past one or two have been totally `standby`. The most active hours
are 00-02 with twelve frequencies running; all other hours have eleven
or less.

Another oddity at Okeechobee: 9395 & 9455 are allegedly both 100 kW
and same azimuth 355. But comparing them on remotes such as Maryland
at 0130 March 18, 9395 is *much* stronger, S9+20 while 9455 is JBA
S6-S7 and barely makes a trace on the waterfall (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5085, March 18 at 0614, WTWW-2 is S9+20/30 of dead air, or a
trace of modulation, and some hum; and the JBA parasitic spur carriers
circa 5072 & 5098. Ted offdozed? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, March 18 at 0617, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR,
competing for the Tennessee DA Sweepstakes with 5085 WTWW. But the
other three WWCRs are nominally modulating, 3215, 5890, 5935. No one
paying attention at 1300 WWCR Ave, yay! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 333 MCW kHz, March 18 at 0624 UT, JBA beacon, second
letter V, and the first seems like 6. At DXinfocentre no fits and
nothing at all on 334, but could really be 335 as I am tuning USB: BV
in Batesville AR would be a close fit, 25 watts heard before; also CV,
Clovis NM, 25W (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9535, March 17 at 0458, aha, RHC S9:5 into Maryland SDR,
opening ``second hour`` in English after Spanish --- but chopped off
the air at 0500* as a mistake. Something`s always wrong at RHC. I
switch to 6000 where English continues, and 6165 but unusually weak
S7/S8 with ACI from WBCQ. 9700 is Turkey and 6145 Romania.

Further chex March 17: at 0637, English on 6165, now S9+40 with hum
during Mailbag; 6100 also English and hum S9+20; 6060 English at
S9+20/30. 6000 is off and 5040 in Spanish. And a JBA carrier on 6140
which is probably leapfrog of 6060 over 6100; no other ones heard on
6270 or 6230. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

11880 after 2300 March 17, RHC again in English, maybe to stay (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [non]. 15770, March 17 at 1910, WRMI has resumed R. Prague
in English after yesterday`s test of RFPI in Russian; however, without
notice, what had been the first broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO at
0130-0200 UT Friday has been replaced March 18 by `Viva Miami` - and
RFPI! on the Systen F schedule, 5850 and 7780. This VM? segment
consisted of the CBS4 Miami report about WRMI and Shortwave for
Freedom; A. Schwarzenegger`s comments on the war, and the Ukrainian
NA; 0145 RFPI multilingual opening and their Russian program --- in
the middle of the night over there! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920-, AM, March 17 at 0643, JBA music with heavy
beat and announcement, presumed the usual R. Pushka (rifle) Russian
ethnic pirate on its expansive schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 6145, March 17 at 0502, Romanian, S9/+10 into Maryland
SDR, RRI hour for W Europe from Galbeni, but certainly not available
for RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7780, March 17 at 0503 tune-in until 0506, WRMI new
relay of Ukrainian Radio in English segment, rapid translation and
back to Ukrainian. Wish they would put English at a reliable time and
length; another day there was no English in this span (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15120, March 17 at 1619, Spanish on the ATS-909 portable,
tnx to tip of Kenneth Vito Zichi of R. Martí on new frequency at 1530;
but gone by my 1644 recheck of St Lucia SDR. My explanation: likely
test or mistake at Grimesland, scheduled on 15120 only at 2130-2200
M-F for VOA Bambara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2129 monitoring: confirmed UT
Thursday March 17 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9+15/25 into Boa Vista SDR
but VP considering noise level.

** U S A. 4790, UT Thu March 17 at 0300-0400, Radio Angela on WBCQ
with a great hour of Mexican mostly ranchera music on the new `Radio
Maria Bonita` program. I hunt around for best reception on a remote
close enough for a stronger signal but hopefully far enough away from
the continuous whine QRM across eastern USA, settle on Lorain, Ohio
but still with some whine, S9+15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
