** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, March 16 at 1508, LRA36 is active this
Wednesday, music, only S2/S3 into Brasília #1 SDR, no signal into
Campo. 1510 ``Nacional, la radio pública`` ID; 1519 Antártida
themesong, gone off by 1523 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHILE. 28455 USB, March 16 at 2215, CE7VP, Javier is the only
signal on 10m -- good thing I bandscanned anyway, and no CW beacons
either. Says he is beyond Puerto Montt in southern Chile; island
sounds like pronounced ``Quiloé``, contact with WB7JB in Washington
state, even further than I, who am 9176 km = 5702 stmi; S4/S5, enough
to combat my local hi noise level. QRZ.com:

CE7VP Chile flag Chile
Javier "Javi" Capdebilla Alvarado, P.O. Box : 42, Quellon, Chiloe
Island, 5790000, Chile

``Saludos del Sur del Mundo --- Regards of the south of the world.
Chiloe Is. (SA-018) *Chilean Patagonia*``, some nice photos at
Then I scanned 12 m, nothing; 15m one unID phone; 17m a couple phone
signals, one Japanese sounding (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 16 at 1434, open carrier/dead air in Spanish
except for a squeal from RHC, S9+10/20 much stronger than 15230 which
does manage to modulate S8/S9. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 16 at 2226, RHC in French, S9+35 with hum, so
apparently on DST-adjusted schedule of 2200 French, 2230 Portuguese?,
2300 English.

11850, March 16 at 2227, RHC S9+20 but JBM, suptorted Spanish and
parasitic spur on 11840s. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [non]. 15770, Wed Mar 16 at 1900, Radio for Peace
International test in Russian as pre-publicized, via WRMI. If
successful, will be prolonged. Opens with multi-lingual ID, news in
Russian, occasional English IDs. VG into Maryland SDR but did not
check in Europe, more concerned with 9370 R. Svoboda, but see later
reports about that. That left a 15-minute gap before VOA news and
`Flashpoint Ukraine` on 15770 at 1930, so I wondered what would fill
at 1915? Old favorites from the World Music reel which Richard Langley
and Bruce Churchill identified as including: ``First piece was "Amores
Imortais" by Brazilian singer Eduardo Costa.`` Then more
``international music (Chariots of Fire, Verdum En Dibe Kadar
(Turkish), Da Fing Der Sommer Noch Einmal An” (German) and a short
interlude “Vraho Vraho” (Greek)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 15030, March 16 at 1434, JBA with Doppler flutter, i.e. AIR
Dari at 1330-1500 via Bengaluru - no more sesquihour in English! a
worthless language per AIR. BTW, is INTRUDER like any other
broadcaster within the 15.0-15.1 MHz off-route aeronautical band, i.e.
military; despite longstanding invasions pioneered by BBC on 15070
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, March 16 at 1900 I`m checking various remotes
to get a feel for reception on second day of R. Svoboda in Russian tnx
to the crowdfunding initiative via secret site. It`s audible at TWR
Bengaluru, India which certainly implies a ``central`` Asia site, only
poor but at S9/+10. Armenia would fit and be most convenient after a
known relay on MW 1395 the previous hour; really southwest Asia. Of
the Eurussian SDRs, best into Izhevsk, which is way east of Moskva, VG
S9+10 at 1906. At 1907 a beep and some jamming/OTH radar starts
continually covering +9200-9550 or so, but still audible. Occasionally
also beep and louder sweep tones intermittently. At 1920 I find
Bryansk ``CrazySDR`` is getting a sufficient S5/S6 signal (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, March 16 at 2300 it`s Wednesday so REE in English,
feature to be about some American singer/songwriter, so over to TURKEY
instead, but first checking all four frequencies into Maryland SDR: VG
here and also 11940, 12030, while 11685 is noticeably weaker (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. 15704.874, March 16 at 1437, JBA carrier way
off-frequency, i.e. AWR in Chinese via Trincomalee. Also with Doppler
flutter as befits such a transpolar signal. ChiCom probably do not
bother to jam as harmless? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 17585, March 16 at 1431, JBA carrier with Doppler
flutter, presumably ChiCom jammer against VOA Tibetan via Biblis,
Germany, scheduled this hour only. Seemed OSOB until I came upon
another JBA carrier on 17885, which would be VOA English via Botswana,
this hour only. Nothing on Ascension or Mali frequencies: but per Aoki
the only one to be on at this moment would be CRI Mali on 17630 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 16 at 2309, VOT English VG today into UTwente
with just a hint of squeal, already into first feature, `Feeling
Supreme`, on natural ways to keep memory sharp, by nutrition (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7780, March 16 at 0500-0517+, Ukrainian Radio via
WRMI; some online casts have included segments in English, originally
after 0100 UT, but only Ukrainian language heard now. This is addition
to original 12-13 UT relay on 5010 - not part of Shortwave for Freedom
crowdfunding as WRMI relayed UR before that was formed. I`ve yet to
confirm/listen to that, too early (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2129 monitoring: ``A short list, due to
stormy conditions, From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada,
the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna:
random long wires in the trees. Dear Glenn: World of Radio #2129,
confirmed, below with Details:
9395, splashing sound, QRN, 0231, 0244, 0258 (45343), 0259, March 12
7730, hear nothing, 0059, March 13 [Sun]
9395, QRN, 0030, 0045, 0059 (45433), 0159 [sic], March 15 [Tue]
9955, 2230, just heard jingle, 2258, March 15 [Tue]
5850, hearing World of Radio #2129, and confirming it, 1029, 1044
(55433), 1030, March 16 [Wed] (Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Confirmed Wednesday March 16 at 1035 the 1030 on WRMI 5850, VG direct
as I happen to awaken briefly.

Also confirmed Wed Mar 16 at 2100:20 on WBCQ 7490v, good S8/S9+5 into
Maryland SDR, unchecked direct to OK but no doubt inferior.

Also confirmed UT Thu Mar 17 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, VG S9/+10 into
Maryland SDR, and much weaker 9455 S8/S9 even tho the pair are
allegedly exactly same parameters, 355 degree antennas. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Next WOR 2130 should be ready early UT Fri March 18 for first
broadcasts at 0130 on WRMIs 5850, 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, March 16 at 1445, WTWW-1 surprisingly active on a
non-Sunday Wednesday, S9+20/30 with SFAW, so should 5085 WTWW-2 also
be running? No (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, March 16 at 2227, surprised to hear some ME
music here, no Martí and even less jamming. Also overcoming the JBA
parasitic spur of RHC 11850 matching the one in the clear on 11840.
Aoki & EiBi show Martí off at 2230; Aoki has Republic of Yemen Radio
in a 2-hour break 2200-2400; but EiBi and WRTH show this target
broadcast as 24 hours, presumed via SA`UDI ARABIA (Glenn Hauser, OK,

Wednesday, March 16 2022

** CUBA. 11880, March 15 at 2258, Virginia SDR is getting music from
algo, I guess RHC, S9+10 and noisy, but then into deadair. Recheck at
2329, now it`s in English, so after flailing around a few days,
getting act together for English moved to 23-24 --- but at 2303 and
2329, 5040 is still in Spanish, not English. A different YL voice than
usual, something anti-American about Assange. Modulation is somewhat
distorted and scratchy on 11880. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Spanish, otherwise? at 2328, 11950 // 6000, so `Mesa Redonda` is
resuscitated. Mainstream Spanish not // to those but to each other:
11760, 11670, 9650, 9535 music; but 11850 and its parasites are off as
are all 13 MHz channels except Chinamusic on 13650. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Another RHC survey March 16 at 0101 via Maryland SDR: 5040 is
S7/S9 of dead air. 6000 is on VG S9/+10 and in English! unlike last
night. But no second English channel, all these off: 6060, 6100, 6165,
9700; on in Spanish is 9650. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MONGOLIA [non]. 5800, March 16 at 0145, Voice of Mongolia ID in
English, feature about the arts, UNESCO. This is a brand-new relay by
WRMI, Tue-Sat at 0130-0200: a big help as VOM`s direct English are
hardly heard in NAm, per WRTH 0900-0930 on 12085, 1530-1600 on 12015;
at 178 and 116 degrees resp., neither any good thisaway, let alone
inconvenient hours and MUFs. RMI is probably getting it thru
intervention of Kall which already relays VOM to Europe at 1300-1330
on 6005. Will have to listen to some whole VOMcasts if I can clear
such a semihour. Tnx to Richard Langley alert about this from WRMI on
disgraced FB. VOM replaces R. Prague International but which still has
some other RMI times. 5800 is on a 160-degree antenna like 9955 but
fairly audible backwards, sidewards (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. If it`s Tuesday there must not be any English from REE, but
checking at 2305 March 15, all four frequencies are on instead of
yesterday only one, sounds Castilian but must be the Sefarad service
a.k.a. Ladino, a.k.a judeo-español on 9690, 11685, 11940, 12030.
Another one is on same set Saturdays at 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 15 at 2307, VOT into UTwente is on and very
good, S9+25/35 with only a slight squeal. Altho this is hardly audible
direct, we`re not looking forward to A22 when, stuck in a rut, VOT
goes back on 9830 at 2200, oblivious of all the RTTY from Puerto Rico
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2129 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday March 15
at earlied time on 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 direct, no jamming
audible. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to NNW

** U S A. 7780, March 16 from 0200, R. Svoboda via WRMI is JBA into
Pskov SDR. Hope it`s doing better elsewhere in Russia. 7780, resuming
Russian at 0400, is S9+20/30 into UTwente at first with heavy
clatterpulse noise, OTHR or jamming? No good at the other few
White/Red Russian SDRs after 0400; Bryansk is silent. Not audible at
Minsk; Khimki near Moskva has signal trace but silent. Tambov is
always totally blocked above 7 MHz hamband (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARMENIA [and non]. 1395, March 15 at 1819, Russian, VG S9+15/30
into Tambov, Russia KiwiSDR, not blocked and no jamming yet, long
interview above lots of crowdnoise background --- the new R. Liberty
one-hour relay by crowdfunding as USAGM is not interested. Site not
revealed but obviously Gavar, the only huge signal on 1395, 500 kW. As
to be expected, only 1403 km = 872 statute miles away. Another user is
also on this from Arlington VA, guess who?

Tambov also has Russian on 1386, in fact sounds like the same, i.e. R.
Baltic Waves relay from Lithuania. Strangely, this Kiwi does not block
1386 & 1395, but next channels, 1404, 1413, 1422 are blacked out. 1395
also audible at further Pskov, but lots more ACI from nearby 1386. At
1900, 1395 abruptly switches to TOMBS cult in South Carolina English!
No 1395 on the TOMBS website (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also

** AUSTRIA. 15360.421, March 14 at 1923, something way off frequency,
African? language, S9+10 with fades to S7. Only thing scheduled
1900-1930 on ``15360`` is AWR Hausa via Moosbrunn; a major 300 kW site
where no one is paying attention (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 14 at 1921, no signal from RHC when English
should have shifted; nor anywhere else on cursory bandcheck now, altho
I did confirm it yesterday. RHC is amid the biweek of confusion due to
imposition of Yanqui DST already. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 14 at 2159, RHC unscheduled Spanish on here,
S9+25 until chopped off at 2203.5* instead of English as had been at
2200 in B-season until DST imposed. Previous pattern would be to move
English one UT hour *later* to start at 2300, but none of that today,
still vacant after 2300 and no English found anywhere else.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, March 14 at 2204, surveying RHC besides no 11880 with
English: none on 13 MHz band; on 11 MHz, only 11850 dead air and
Spanish on 11760; on 9 MHz, audible on 9710 and much weaker 9535. By
2304, 9650 has replaced 9710, rather than previous swap time of 0000.
After 2300 the only Cuban on 13 MHz is 13650 with useless CRI music
relay fill instead of Portuguese. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, March 14 at 2318, RHC in Spanish, not English, which
ultimately in DST months may appear this hour instead of one real UT
hour later as it had been. 11880 still off, which typically matches
5040 at 23-24 when both attain English. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, UT Tue Mar 15 at 0000, RHC Spanish with frequencies,
probably incorrect but not copied. This is when English hour used to
start on tropical band. Tnx to DST making it already 8 pm local in
Habanamiami, English to USA ought to start somewhere, traditionally
6000 & 6165, but neither is on nor 9700 which mostly replaced 6165
this winter. So I keep checking but English is nowhere, tsk2. By 0032,
6165 is on --- in Spanish, still no 6000, or 6060. But 6165 is *not*
// 5040 Spanish. Maybe it`s the alternate TV audio `Mesa Redonda`, but
it was previously in the 23-24 UT hour during DST. It was 6000 //
11950 but nothing now on 11950.

At 0105: still no 6000; 6165 in Spanish entertainment, not // 11760 &
5040 & 9650 which match each other. By 0145 recheck, 6000 is finally
on but Spanish, not English, // 6165. At 0203 still Spanish music on
6000 // 6165, no English.

At 0307, 6000 finally in English with a drama about Czechia and
Marxism. 6165 is now off as well as 9700, 6100, 6060 not on yet,

At 0645, 6060 is Spanish, only S5/S7; 6100 with music, English,
S9+20/30 but overmodulated, distorted with hum. 6165, 6000 and 5040
are all off by now. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

I knew it would be pointless, but for the record check the RHC
website, which ought to show the very latest frequency schedule, ha2.
radiohc.cu homepage has dropdowns, the first one on the left, De
Interés, normally leads to Frecuencias, but refuses to drop on the
portada; if you go to some other page first, then it works, and guess
what, still displays the *B20* sked which expired a year ago!
Somethings` always multiply wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.798, March 14 at 2126, R. Cairo on new frequency some
0.2 kHz higher than before, into UTwente, S9+35 but extremely
distorted presumed English as usual. Also hit by big buzz QRM
9885-9915, OTHR? Would you believe that NASWA Journal log editor
strips off any precise frequencies reported beyond the decimal, which
some of us go to so much trouble to measure, making my previous report
nonsensical as if on ``9899``! Also approx. 9899.8 direct at 2207,
S7/S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9809.792, March 15 at 1907, I accidentally tune the Pskov,
Russia SDR here while checking 9370 R. Svoboda: extreme distortion
S6/S8 just like 9899.8 for the 2115 English. Scheduled now at 19-20 is
R. Cairo in German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 11705, March 15 at 1525, Horn-of-Africa music S4-S7.
Aoki shows at 1500-1530 Radio Mazaris Samay, via Talata, MADAGASCAR.
In WRTH 2022 page 517 it`s the first Target Broadcast under Eritrea,
as Radio Maezer Semay, religious based in Dallas TX! also for
Ethiopia. Alt. freq. 11555 was anticipated from 1 Feb 2022 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, REE`s N American frequency, is AWOL today March 14 at
2208 check; while 11940 SAm is S9, 12030 ME S7/S8. Still off at 2304
checking Knoxville SDR, and so is 11685 for Africa, nor 11670, leaving
only 12030 for English to be heard! Something`s always nonsensical at
Noblejas. BTW, don`t rely on W8BUG for accurate SAM frequency
displays: it thinx WWV 10000 is +40-41 Hz off! And 11940 as +57, so it
would really be only +16/17 unless the offness be nonlinear (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2129 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday March 15 at 0030 on WRMI 9395 and 9455, good and fair; retimed
from 0130, now axually adding 9455 despite wrong sked all winter when
as SMTV cult then and now is on 9455 after 0100. This means both 9395
& 9455 for us also UT Thu at 0030. Both are registered as on
355-degree NNW antenna, but they never sound identical in strength and
modulation. Next:

2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 15770, March 14 at 1924, WRMI is S9+10 but undermodulated
with R. Prague in English as now scheduled; QRX for `Flashpoint
Ukraine` as VOA retimed it for 1935. First I try the PEI Kiwi SDR on
the 44-degree way to Europe, but JBA! Then the Maine SDR where it
inbooms S9+30: does not speak well for the PEI unit. I listen to VOA
via WRMI at 1930-2000 with news and FPUK; trouble is, this Kiwi times
out after 20 minutes, prompting reload but only get 10 minutes more in
max 30 min per 24 hours allowed.

15770, March 15 at 1935, VOA FPUK via WRMI is VG into Maryland SDR,
and sufficient S6/S7 into UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7780, March 15 from 0200, WRMI with R. Svoboda relay in
Russian, but since Slovakia in English is still on 7780 after 0300, VG
into Maryland SDR, I asked Jeff White if R. Svoboda in Russian was
really expanding to 0200-0400 as per Shortwaves for Freedom info. He

``Glenn: No, Radio Svoboda in Russian is 0200-0300 and 0400-0500 UT on
7780. Ukrainian Radio in Ukrainian is 0500-0600 UT on 7780. And VOA
Flashpoint Ukraine is 1930-2000 UT [M-F] on 15770.``

Indeed, I do hear Svoboda again after 0400, another hour when USAGM
doesn`t care; and Ukrainian Ukraine --- could there be an English
segment? after 0500, hours when 7780 had been off the air. At 0509
March 15, 7780 is blocked at Tambov, but JBA at Pskov beneath heavy
pulsing, OTHR or jamming? At UTwente, 0514, 7780 is fair S9/+10 but
also with pulsing 7775-7800, OTHR or jamming? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, Mon Mar 14 at 2200, WRMI-12 is not on yet vs hi local
noise level while 5950 can be detected. Skedgrid shows *2200 but
apparently applies to Saturday only for Soferiah International,
African gospel huxter from Brampton, Ont. per System F schedule. Yet
System K sked shows 5850 starting at 2230 daily including Saturday
with different programming: can`t be both, and anyhow today, 5850 is
still not on by 2254. Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. (7490.1v), Mon March 14 from 2300, secret semi-replay of
`Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` on WBCQ webcast now a real UT hour earlier.
When chopped off at 2330, `Camp Constitution Radio` starts without any
extraneous spot commercial inserted, nor was there one last week
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9275, March 14 at anytime, still no signal from WMLK; we can
wait forever for these gospel huxters finally to get their brand new
transmitter on the air. It`s been very slow-going, but a new 40-second
audiovideo dated March 11, 2022 is up on their disgraced FB:

whatever that means: no narration, just menacing location sound. Only
3 views so far, including me? who cares? Another noisy AV shows
demolition of building (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1670, March 15 at 0655, `Black Information Network` ID among
the QRM. Per this it can only be Macon:
and linx to https://macon.binnews.com/
where the callsign is invisible until the very bottom fine print:
WMGE, as also in NRC AM Log, but CoL is really Dry Branch, Georgia,
why? DB is unincorporated, just SE of Macon but around the transmitter
site. Anyway, unusual here with 1670 dominated by WOZN Wisconsin, and
the off+frequency new Mexican (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9370, March 15 from 1900, R. Svoboda in Russian, new
crowdfunding-supported relay since USAGM is not interested. Tambov SDR
in Russia blox SW above 7.2 MHz, but Pskov is getting this. Before
1900 it was VOA Pashto as scheduled via Thailand, and a SAH from the
Svoboda carrier on a few minutes earlier. After brief VOA s/off
without YDD variations, only R. Svoboda from somewhere. This is S7-S9
different strength and slightly different offset than VOA was. 1905,
`Radio Svoboda, novosti``. I can`t get TDOA to work but don`t trust it
anyway; so whence? Maybe Armenia like preceding hour on MW 1395
certainly was, q.v. I don`t know why some assume 9370 be via WRMI but
Jeff White confirms it is not and he does not know where 1395 comes
from either.

Note, here`s which side the Pskov SDR is on as emblazoned on its page:
``Make peace not war! The Ukrainian army has been killing people in
Donbass for 8 years. Pskov, Russia``. But Tambov SDR is noncommittal
textually, just blocking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

5040, March 14 at 0559, RHC English VG S9+20/30, but cuts off at

6165, March 14 at 0601, RHC back here after long absence, and no
signal on 9700; maybe starting as early as 0000, unchecked then. S7/S9
with that signature hum, but just barely modulated. By 0605 I realize
the language is not English or Spanish, but Arabic? So this is really
R. Japan in Arabic via FRANCE as scheduled 0600-0630, underneath the
Radio Humvana carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6000, March 14 at 0604, RHC S9+10/20 of dead air or trace of
modulation. Nothing else scheduled, so probably really RHC rather than
an understation; altho Echo of Hope, Korea South, might have jumped
from 5995 to 6000 this week? Somethings` always wrong at RHC (Glenn

Also confirmed Sunday March 13 at 2235 the 2230 on WRMI 5950! This was
deleted in the new sked dated March 13, so I hastened to delete me
from my sked too. Perhaps prolonged for one more time. VG into

** U S A. 15770, reminder that VOA`s Flashpoint Ukraine is now M-F at
1935 via WRMI; and new sked has added WORLD OF RADIO at 1930 Saturdays
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, March 13 at 2226, WRMI in English, S9+20/30 but quite
undermodulated. Scheduled at 2215-2230 Sundays is Voice of Truth --
with a name like that, beware! Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7780, at 0330 various nights but not logged, a new gospel
huxter on WRMI, ``Soteriah International Ministry``, in English but
very heavy African accent hard to understand, encouraging immediate
tuneout. Nothing about it on programming page, but bought up a lot of
time on sked updated Mar 13:
Mon-Sat 0330-0400 7780, but what about R. Svobodna expanded to 0400?
Sat 1200-1230 5850
Sat 2200-2300 5850 or is it daily? blank rest of week
Tue-Sat 0000-0100 5950
General search on that strange name reveals that Soteriah is Greek for
deliverance, i.e. another Christian concept. Maybe the same thing has
a place on disgraced FB, but stalled since 2014y!
Tema, Ghana, is mentioned, which would account for the accent. Yet
another one obsessed with the godname Yahweh. There are some other
ministries with such a Soteriah name (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, UT Monday March 14 after 0330, `Concert Hall` on WBCQ
Radio Angela, concluding Act I of Carmen --- I thought it was supposed
to be Act II of Barber of Seville this week; filled with some other
Carmen music until 0359. Now starts at 0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15300, March 14 at 1514-1514.4*, JBA signal with heavy
Doppler flutter, i.e. horizontally in frequency, not just vertically
in strength. Only one signal, not two beating, when chopped off air
abruptly. Nothing between 1500-1600 in HFCC, Aoki or EiBi. In these
entire skeds only a handful of transmissions ending at ``-1515``: 7510
KTWR Korean; Chengdu, China on 7225, 6060; Kunming on 7210; none of
which seem likely on 15300. No other signals nearby on 19m with such
flutter, presumably close to trans-polar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


What Can We Learn from the War in Ukraine?
Four erroneous and dangerous premises have been accepted in current
international relations.
Juan Antonio Blanco Miami 10 Mar 2022 - 17:40 CET

"How did we get here?" Jake Tapper asked CNN on Sunday, March 6. His
answer was honest and accurate: it has been two decades of misguided
optimism and appeasement by Western leaders, of different parties,
eager to ignore Vladimir Putin's grave misconduct inside and outside

In the end, Tapper asked whether any lessons had been learned from all
this. He left the answer up in the air, to be pondered by viewers. I
don't think so.

To correct these errors, it is not enough to point them out. Rather,
it is necessary to understand the premises — also mistaken — that
spawned the West's indecision, confusion and weakness vis-a-vis its
main enemies. And it is not only with Russia that mistakes have been
made, but also with Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, China, and its
disgraceful non-state allies (including international terrorism and
organized crime).

To answer Tapper's question, I think it is necessary to reconsider at
least four false and dangerous foreign policy premises that have been
accepted over the last two decades by important open societies....
