Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 10124 USB, May 17 at 0628, ragchew hamnet of Oz accents,
more unID VKs in the Aussie-only phone subband on 29 m, 10120-10135
kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9667.177V, May 17 at 0635, RVM music, carrier wobbling
audibly but still exceeding 9667 from nominal 9665 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, May 17 at 2001, RHC theme JBA and sounds like
Portuguese/Brasilian. This frequency is still missing from EiBi and
Aoki tho I reported it some time ago. Is anyone paying attention?

15140, May 17 at 2002, RHC definitely in Brazuguese, S6/S8 but not //
13680. Maybe two separate playouts. Aoki is way out of date, still
showing winter timing for English on 15140 at 2000-2100. EiBi on 15140
at 2000-2030 shows French. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, May 17 at 2201, R. Cairo still in extremely
distorted English, plus hum S9+30/40 into UTwente. As Alan Holder
quipped, ``something`s always amiss at Abis``, but that does not do
this justice; rather, ``egregious in Egypt`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. Correxion to typo in frequency as ``15709.079``! Delete
original report and replace with:
15709.979, May 16 at 1447, JBA carrier. Scheduled is AWR Chinese via
Trincomalee on ``15710`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 17 at 0500-0506, UR1 via WRMI, day 82 of
Russia`s war, `Ukraine: Security Issue` in English (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday May 17 at 0030 on WRMIs, into Missouri SDR: 9395, S9+22 and
9455, S8/S9+10. Next:

2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 [NEW]
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

appreciated, by MO check in US$ on a US bank to:

Or via PayPal not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. ``Glenn, the WRMI spurspikes below 9455 have been going on
for at least a couple of weeks. I can hear them well up to 150 kHz
below fundamental when reception is good. One night they pretty much
ruined otherwise decent reception of BBCWS via SMG at 0500 on 9410.
Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas`` as of May 13. Also, typo in my report
as ``9355`` instead of correct 9335, spurs heard even next to WBCQ
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Tue May 17 at 1930, VOA News via WRMI, and 1935
`Flashpoint: Ukraine` dated today, not Mon May 16 edition which got
lost, since 72-hour-previous Fri May 13 edition played yesterday.
S9/+10 into Maryland SDR. But followed by another anomaly at 2000,
faux-time-signal and VORW, John claiming it be Sunday May 15 on 5850
doing a full new show tho did not feel well (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, May 17 at *0155, WBCQ IS & ID loop, just reactivated
for first time, ex-4790 for Radio Angela. S9/+5 into Maryland SDR
reading -22 Hz = 5129.978 as every Classic `BCQ frequency must be at
least slightly askew. At 0200 starts `Marion`s Attic`. We have now
escaped CODAR QRM and the uteblaaps! No QRM to 5130, but still some
storm crashes inevitably in spring/summer. Yet listenable, and better
than the original 7490v airing too early at 21 UT Fridays. 0300 next
show is `Bluegrass State of Mind`. Or, is it ``Mine``? 5130 ex-4790 of
course also applies to WORLD OF RADIO at 0400 UT Saturdays.

4790, from 0343 I inspect the ex-frequency via same remote: the
uteblaaps are still there visible on waterfall and/or audible, once a
minute near :00 and also near :42 past each minute. One at a time, in
three different positions: below, right on, or above, 4790. They too
are now free of WBCQRM - you`re welcome (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, May 17 at 0145, NO signal from WRNO which nominally
starts at 0100. Also missing last night. Previous report to the WOR
iog:

``7505even, ONLY EMPTY CARRIER of WRNO New Orleans at 1234 UT on May
13, S=9 in NY state, two 120 Hertz distance apart strings either
sideband visible too.[selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3
Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews May 8 / 13)``

Last reports were on UT May 14:

``Distorted audio of WRNO Worldwide Radio in English on 7505 kHz via

``[WOR] WRNO 7505 missing --- For the 2nd night in a row, I note that
WRNO is missing from their usual 7505 frequency. Walt`` Salmaniw, BC,
0218 UT May 16. This is not unusual: WRNO may disappear for nights or
weeks at a time for no obvious reason: technical or operational?

** CANADA. 248 MCW kHz, May 16 at 0451 UT, dash and WG, powerful ND
beacon at Winnipeg, glad to find it copiable despite HSNL, if no other
Canadians and hardly any Americans beyond 341 EI Enid (Glenn Hauer,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 9790, May 16 at 0458, CRI Cantonese via CUBA is S9+40
atop CCI in French which is RFI from 0400. At 0506 check, RFI S9:15 in
the clear on this 04-07 UT broadcast, huge collision during first
hour. RHC not in HFCC so how could RFI possibly know of a problem?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, May 16 at 0513, RHC with S9+35 of dead air in English,
or maybe JBM; 6060 & 6100 are off already; 6165 is on S9+40/45 and
modulating; 5040 in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 13650, May 16 at 2037, RRI first English of the day for N
America is huge S9+50 into UTwente, but absent from // 11850, the
ailing transmitter. 2045 `History Show` about a great poet (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 9996 kHz, May 16 at 0456, binary code, no doubt RWM
Taldom/Moskva. BTW, American media kept mispronouncing Móskva as the
name of that downed naval vessel. They must never have heard any SW
utterance of ``Govorit Moskvá`` with the stress obviously on the -a
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7730, May 16 at 0500, UR1 via WRMI resuming `Ukraine:
Security Issue` war summary in English; S9/S7 direct with storm
crashes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. 15709.079, May 16 at 1447, JBA carrier. Scheduled is AWR
Chinese via Trincomallee on ``15710`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
May 15 from 2000.7 UT on IRRS SW via AM Italia, Villa Estense, 1323
kHz, S9 and noisy into nearby Noale KiwiSDR; and not on 918 or 207.

Also confirmed Sunday May 15 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+10 into
Knoxville SDR. This airing perpetuates despite axed from websked.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 16 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9 and noisy
into undirect Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 16 at 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-.
Dead air at first, then an F-explative in the voice of Allan Weiner,
as A51 sometimes inserts such amusements; WOR itself sounded slightly
overmodulated/distorted. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 [NEW]
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), Sunday May 15 from 2200, WBCQ webcast of `Uncle
Bill`s Melting Pot`, music from Ireland for St Patrix Day as
originally broadcast in 2017y, rerun of the third episode when they
were only a semihour. That should rereplay Monday at 2300. Sunday 2230
restart another episode of variety starting with Serbia, 2250 greeting
Michigan ARE where they like hot women and cold beer, as Ep #4. Reruns
still as UB is Covidailing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, UT Monday May 16 after 0200, WBCQ Radio Angela with
another opera on `Concert Hall`, but unlistenable via Maryland SDR
with uteblaaps every few seconds. Was last chance for 4790, as 5130 to
replace it from UT May 17. If the blaaps follow it there, that will be
really suspicious (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, UT Monday May 16 at 0200 I do catch this week`s
`Encore` of classical music via WRMI; almost sufficient into Knoxville
SDR but a bit of Cuban jamming splat from 5955, whence Radio República
has been kaput for a decade, unless BW narrowed, rather not for music,
or LSBed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Monday May 16 at 1930 after R. Prague, WRMI with
`Flashpoint Ukraine` from VOA webcast, soon specified as Friday May
13! Skipping the news first since it would have been 48 hours olds.
Recall that FPU was missing Wed & Thu May 11 & 12, but I missed
checking May 13: no problem: we`ve got it now! But, what about the
Monday May 16 edition? Ended at 1954, then jive VOA ID, dead air; 1956
thumb piano music? WRMI ID and more music fill until Mistruths to
Mistrust (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9940, May 16 at 2208, WTWW again/still absent as ``Voice of
Freedom`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 16 circa 1730 & 1800 UT on caradio, and circa
2200 fixed, KLEY Wellington KS still providing air that is dead (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (91.5), Sunday May 15 from 2301 UT, KTXK Texarkana (about as
far from Lubbock as possible in TX as I misplaced it last time,
confused with KTXT), webcast of `Weekend Radio` originated with WCLV,
on my last chance to hear this week`s episode on one of the fewer
affiliates remaining. After a ToH commercial, another break at 2311
pushing buying a ``spot for $ 3 to support public radio``. Surely this
is crossing the line into commercialism, and there were some brief
spots later which sounded just like ads, not ``underwriting``. Yet to
boot, show ended early at 2350 so some content must have been cut. HQ
does provide a cue sheet confirming it was this week`s episode, but
post facto could not figure what came out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15800, 15760, 15360, May 15 at 1440, CNR1 jammers with
bigsigs S7 to S9+10; Aoki shows all three are occupied only by Sound
of Hope and jammers, all other stations prudently avoiding them at all
hours. Also weaker but not synch, Chinese on 15110, which is CNR1
jamming against VOA Chinese via Philippines this hour only. At 1443 I
find a couple more: 14980 JBA and 15920 S8/S9, also nothing but
jammers and SOH per Aoki. 15 MHz is obviously the current OWF from
East Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, May 15 at 0141, RHC Spanish S9/+20 undermodulated //
9535. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 15 at 0136, quick check of The
Mighty KBC gets rock and Eric at S9+25/30 via EAST GERMANY, rivalling
9975 KVOH. Just another too much in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, May 15 at 0039, pirate S8/S9+5 vs high
storm noise level -- HSNL, ``Games People Play`` and segué another
song. 0109 YL ``Greatest hits of all time, Ball Smacker``, and tenpins
SFX, now S9+15 between storm crashes. Off by 0147 check. Of the three
simulpirates, this is #2 in overall quality. More:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97162.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, May 15 at 0101, S9+10 pirate with electric
guitar; 0103 retune, DJ has spoken a bit and SSTV, 0104 music, ``Let`s
Speak English, But Not My Salad[?]``, more electric guitar. 0127 SSTV
is ending? then some more, 0128 music. 0148 SSTV? beepery sounds like
looping past 0150 when DJ grunts, ``I Wanna Be a DJ`` song still
playing until 0200 when there are some more noises unseeming SSTV,
then off, or dead air as I am about to QRT. Of the three simulpirates,
this is #1 in strength and quality.

These say Wasteland Radio, did stop at 0200*, with noisy SSTV images:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97163.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920 USB, May 15 at 0102, third simulpirate and #3
in quality, S7 song vs HSNL; 0117 ``Time After Time``; 0122 off? No,
was pause or fade. 0147 still on with weak music. WDOG, per:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97164.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9730, UT Sun May 15 at 0139, classical `cello music,
S9+15/30, 0140 applause and Romanian announcement. This is the 00-02
Galbeni to E NAm. Alan Roe`s Music on SW shows `Radio Concert Season`
during the entire 01 hour, // 7420. More in the Saturday Night SW
Music Glut; wish I could keep listening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 15 at 0500 UT, UR1 via WRMI as I break
away from the WBOB DX test to another SDR, Maryland. Not usual
`Ukraine: Security Issue` war news review, but JIP originally live
press conference about winning the Eurovision Song Contest. Mixture of
English and Ukrainian, translations back and forth and rather
frustrating when the English is interrupted. At 0508 ``Happy
Birthday`` song in English; still gong past 0513 when I resume WBOB.
At 0534 recheck, now `U:SI` is playing later in the hour than usual
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
May 14 at 1930 on WRMI 15770, S9 into Maryland SDR. Also confirmed at
1930 on WRN webcast to N America. Also confirmed starting at 1931 on
WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 steady into nearby SDR.

Not confirmed UT Sunday May 15 at 0030 on WRMI 7780 --- rather last
week`s 2137 playing. Oh2, probably my fault, missed uploading to
System D server. Fortunately this the first? airing by that, so 2138
is now ready for UT Mon 0030 on 7780, and UT Thu 0130 on 5010 ---

and as I check the skedgrid find a NEW airing on D, UT Friday 0330 on
7780. And another new one without notice, Tuesday 2330 on System G
9395 - an hour after System B on 9955, jammed by Cuba.

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 15 at 0321 about 3 minutes into so
started circa 0318 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 direct vs HSNL.

Also confirmed Sunday May 15 ending at 1356 on WMRI via Channel 292,
Germany, 9670, so must have started a bit early at 1327; and
immediately into Russian. S5/S7 into NW Eire SDR. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW [to be canceled? still May 8]
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun May 15 at 0145, WRMI with `Encore` classical
music, into Chinese opera, ``Liza Lim flies to the moon``, S9+15/40
atop HSNL. Due to all my pirate and other tuning this hour, I`m
missing it! Must get next play UT Monday 0200 on 5950. 5850 has some
hum unlike 5800, 5950. Now on 5950 is more music in the Saturday Night
SW Music Glut, which I cannot possibly also audition, TRSW (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9, May 15 at 0119, JBA carrier, must be WBCQ due to
offset, but ailing very underpowered; vs S9+35/45 ACI de 6165 RHC.
WBCQ refuses to deal with that clash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, May 15 at 0152, checking for uteblaaps but none heard
direct, just S9 HSNL; *0155 WBCQ starts IS & ID loop buried in the
noise for Radio Angela to follow. Uncle Bill tells us May 15:

``Over the next several days, WBCQ's Radio Angela will be migrating
from 4790 kHz to a previous WBCQ frequency, 5130 kHz. WBCQ hopes to
maintain the same coverage area with this move, perhaps even slightly
greater in the US and Canada as west coast CODAR will no longer be a
factor. During the week of May 16-22, listeners might want to check
both frequencies during broadcast hours (typically 0200-04xx UTC).
-Bill Tilford, Lafayette, Indiana``

Not mentioned are the uteblaaps, a last straw for 4790. I have
advocated for getting off the 4-5 MHz band completely, especially in
summer, as even without the QRM, the storm QRN level is intolerable;
should move to a higher band, even 11 MHz, for greater coverage and
less noise. This has been futile (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun May 15, WTWW-2 webcast despite scheduled from
0000, `Theatre Organ Under the Arch`, again no sign of it at these
chex: 0015, 0037, rather hamstuff; nor direct on 5085: 0107 rock and
ID from what used to be a cow pasture. O well, one less choice in the
Saturday Evening SW Music Glut.

9940, BTW was not to be heard earlier in afternoon. `The Voice of
Freedom` for Ukraine, seems quite irregular, at whim of Ted (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Sun May 15 at 0132, KVOH inbooms VG at S9+30/40,
wideband near hifi, with a bit of jazz, then Pat Conrad announcement
during `Saturday Night Jazz Session` --- one more in the Music Glut.
He`s going to play some Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt and
Coleman Hawkins, but first:: proselytizing quoting Hebrews, etc. 0134
finally music. He just ruined his own show, driving away rational
listeners (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 600 kHz, UT Sun May 15 at 0414, S7 via Athens GA SDR, shared
with Dene Lynneberg, NZ: WBOB Jaxonvil FL is DX-testing again, with
some ABBA. 0417 says running 20 KW now, different than last night,
asking for emails. 0418 Monkees, 0419 cutoff or fade - certainly
weaker than when was 50 kW. CPC said this time WBOB would be running
DX test noises, sweeps, Morse IDs, etc. I do hear sweeps upward thrice
at 0421.

We have heavy lightning/storming nearby in Garfield County but not
right here altho some flashes have been visible overhead. Yet I try
for WBOB direct on the E/W longwire into R75: At 0425 HSNL; 0427 slow
sweep up? 0429 more definite upsweeps in the QRM & QRN, so I can say I
did get WBOB direct. Never heard any Morse IDs; were they ever
emitted? Those would be best for DX test definite logging.

Back to Athens SDR: 0432 rock music with cutouts; 0435 dead air;
0435.6 music; 0440 outro as Elton John, ND 20 kW, now different than
last night, asking reports; muses about the mystery of daytime
skywave. Currently working on ground loop problem. 0443 sweeps up,
0444 song; 0447 different sweeps; 0500 Sinatra ``The End is Near``. I
tune away for Ukraine, q.v. 0514 recheck, says WBOB is back to full
power and will be on a few minutes longer, music, and I quit (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 15 at 0116 UT, dead air atop presumed still
weak KWKH, i.e. KLEY Wellington KS in its newest open-carrier service.
By 0202, KWKH has built up, but still vs KLEY carrier, making a fast
SAH. Our latest sunset of c. 0152 will be attained in less than a
month, early June.

KLEY`s official SR/SS times in UT for May: 1115/0130 UT; June:
1115/0145. That won`t stop them from running the 250 watt day power
all night instead of ONE watt, modulated or not (Glenn Hauser, Enid

** U S A. Sent to Robert Conrad, Weekend Radio, WCLV Cleveland:

``Weekend Radio disappearing
May 15 at 7:09 PM

Bob, I have to inform you that your carriage list is VERY out of date:
https://www.ideastream.org/programs/weekend-radio/carriage-list
Look at that - still dated 2017!!! There are bound to be changes over
a 5-year period, no matter what. Please have Carmelita or someone get
it up to date.

We missed our Saturday night chances on WCLV and KUCO, so were
planning on getting it at noon CDT Sunday on WUOT which we have done
before as a backup. But it`s gone. Not on their schedule anytime
either, now This American Life. Surely affiliates are obliged at least
as a courtesy to notify the program when it is canceled (or added).
But this can hardly be relied upon, as I have found in keeping track
of stations carrying my own program, and when.

Another source would be great except it is not kept up to date either:
First you are prompted to set up your preferred timezone:
http://publicradiofan.com/cgibin/program.pl?programid=682

I have looked for other chances in the rest of Sunday and the only one
I can find, still showing on own schedule, is KTXK Lubbock, 6 pm CDT
-- (vs 60 Minutes on TV). I do NOT find W.R. on the current skeds of
WBAA, WSND, WNMU, KVLU, KEDM!

I have not investigated the other Saturday stations, as it`s too late
to hear this week`s program there should they exist.

It`s a shame that such a great show has been dropped by several
stations. Hope you will keep on keeping on anyway. You might also
consider availablizing it on demand, or podcast via WCLV site.

Best wishes, Glenn Hauser, Enid OK`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 15 at 0615, NO signal from R. Vanuatu on 3 x
3945. I had been checking it every night but did not do so on May 14
when this was later reported, so our third-harmonic spree suspends:

```Radio Vanuatu seems to be out of the air today 14-05 --- Manuel
Méndez, Lugo, Spain: VANUATU, Radio Vanuatu, Port Vila seems to be out
of the air today. Not even carrier heard on 7260 at 0550 and not even
carrier heard on 11835 from 0600. Also checked via SDR Kiwi remote
receiver in New Zealand, no signal on 3945, 5040, 7260 and 11835``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 28438 USB, May 14 at 2148, weak ham; and then on 28465
USB, another calling CQ 10, but nothing heard on either next few
minutes, fadeouts? I mention merely to remind that 10m even seeming
dead can pass thru a few signals if sought. However, DXMAPS shows a
great many N/S paths, TE contacts. These probably were from South
America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, LRA36 is due for another Saturday
broadcast from 1500, so I start tuning Brazilian SDRs at 1435 -
nothing yet; but at 1452 I`m getting some modulation, best but only
S3/S4 into Campo, while the other three in Brazil get little or
nothing.

1500 promptly official sign-on, multilingual canned in Spanish,
German, English, Russian and maybe one other. 1502 the Antartida song.
1505 some historical talk about Patagonia. 1511 contact info. 1512 I
switch to the LU4 SDR in Argentina which is getting it a bit better,
during song. 1518 talk about the Malvinas war, 1521 interview on phone
about ham radio involvement there --- ah, the nostalgia! for April
1982. 1534 song, 1537 more about hams, but 1539* abruptly chopped off
the air and no return by 1600 as I let it play. It seems this is their
`normal` closing routine, maybe involuntarily. The repeats at 1800
Saturdays are supposed to start in June. But just in case, I recheck
today at 1852: No.

BTW, a May 7 article on
https://www.facebook.com/Radiosdumonde/
about LRA36 claims, ``C'était la première et unique station officielle
au monde située en Antarctique``. Presumably written by the FB site`s
owner, tho never signed, Michel Frémy in Belgium. Nor does he
attribute his sources, but that info is a BIG LIE, probably propagated
by LRA36 and/or R Nacional in Argentina themselves.

If it began in 1979 as claimed, another ``official`` Antarctic SW
station had been going already for five years, from 1974, American
Forces Antarctic Network, which many of us DXed on 6012 kHz --- and
even before that on MW.

And another contradixion about the FM frequency at Esperanza: 97.6,
while WRTH shows 96.7. More likely correct is whichever the
Antarcticans axually announce.

That item also linx to a 3-minute 2021y audiovideo from Argentina
about LRA36; all the garble caused by accents: good luck.

** ITALY [and non]. 7290, Sat May 14 at *1800.9, IRRS cut on via
Bulgaria as always almost a minute late with `Feature Story News` JIP.
Good into UTwente but must tune LSB to avoid RTTY warble. At 1831
during country music also on // 1323 AM Italia into Noale, but not on
918 or 207. Checking, since yesterday when WORLD OF RADIO should have
aired Friday at 1815, 7290 was off and 1323 was fill music.

BTW, next week, the latest possible third-Friday, May 20, is a
scheduled preëmption of WOR from the 1815 slot only. I hope Eurarea
WOR listeners are hearing me instead on WMRI via Channel 292, Sundays
as early as 1324, nominal 1330, on 9670, if not WRMI or WBCQ or WRN or
---? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 95.1, May 14 at 1734 UT on caradio, surprised to hear the
booming voice of the very late Paul Harvey, just concluding with
``Good Day?``. Immediately followed by a gospel huxter so this must be
Bott, KQCV ``Shawnee`` which vies with KICT Wichita for control of
95.1. PH must have said something with religious over- or under-tones.
Yet brings back fond memories of being a regular listener to his
noontime commentaries, especially on Saturdays, despite his right-wing
politix. Wonder if this be a reliable spot now. Altho he wound up in
Chicago, he was an Okie, born in Tulsa *1918-2009* in Phœnix; on ABC
air 1951-2008 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday May 14 after 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10 vs HSNL.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 14 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 4790,
S6/S7 into Maryland SDR --- and yes, interrupted by those uteblaaps,
appearing once a minute in two different interleaving cycles, per the
waterfall some below, some right on, some above 4790, one at a time.

Also confirmed Saturday May 14 at 1600 on WRN North America webcast.

** U S A. 9395, UT Sat May 14 at 0200, immediately following WORLD OF
RADIO, show is `Cruisin the Decades` which claims to be on
``superpower WRMI``, and ``500 kW WBCQ``! Not unless it`s on the 9330
transmitter, which it is not. Outdated/incomplete blurb about it on
WRMI programming page:

``Cruisin' The Decades Global Artwork.jpg --- "Cruisin' The Decades"
is based on a love of music, and an appreciation for the history of
popular music recordings. The show plays one song per decade (any song
from any genre), from the 1910's, 1920's, 1930's, etc... right up to
the 2020's. Hear over 100 years of recorded music history in the
course of one hour. Hand-picked by Brad Savage in Akron, OH where the
show originates on WAPS-FM "The Summit" (www.thesummit.FM)"

Sundays at 5:00 pm Eastern Time (2200 [sic] UTC) on 9955 kHz and
livestreamed at www.wrmi.net.

** U S A. 600 kHz, May 14 at 0423 UT tune-in via Athens GA SDR,
last-minute DX test by WBOB, 50 kW, Jaxonvil FL. S8 and dominant
signal there. None of the usual Morse code, tones, etc., but real live
human Jerry is broadcasting from the hard-to-reach-thru-the-mud
transmitter site, playing some complete genuine vinyl record songs on
a real turntable there! Says he can hear the difference compared to
digital recordings. When mike is open says nevermind the background
noise [as it`s not a studio]. 0438 contact to BOBTX@protonmail.com But
mail has to be forwarded to him. 0442 acknowledges Martin Foltz in
Sarasota.

Says the test is to assess the skywave coverage of the 50 kW daytime
transmitter. Later will switch to night pattern. He and two others are
at the site, but five are needed, and expect to do it again tomorrow
night = UT Sunday 0400-0700. With lightning overhead I QRT the
computer at 0444 nor can I use the E/W longwire direct. I don`t expect
to hear WBOB here, nor do I on the interior longwire nor on the DX-398
with heavy T-storm noise, and 600 anyway dominated by WMT aiming
thisaway, and some others closer than Jax (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 15555, May 13 at 2305, JBA AM with talk, music. Aoki
shows besides WJHR USB until 2200, the only other 15555s are CNR1
jamming and RFA Chinese via SAIPAN, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, May 13 at 0616, RHC English here only, no other
frequencies found on in 5, 6, 9, 11 or 13 MHz bands. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, May 13 at 2303, RHC English S9/+10 but just barely
modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420.002, Fri May 13 at 1625, ERT with great
Greek music and announcements, VG S9+25/35 into UTwente. If China is
on too, totally overridden. But chopped off air abruptly at 1655*
uncovering CNR and something else making a medium SAH. This is also
playing a nice song which could be mistaken for Greek. Only scheduled
now until 1805 is CNR13 in Uighur via Lingshi 725 site, which is
between Beijing and Xi`an. On its curtailed 1230-1700v UT schedule
weekdays only, we can no longer hear VOG well direct in our evenings.
Is on borrowed? time until another possible termination at Mayend
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, May 13 at 1529, V of Martyrs Korea, Maldives
service in Dhivehi, runs a bit late so s/off in English not until
1530.0, overlapping Vatican in Arabic until about 1530.4. Into S India
SDR, was S9+10/20 from secret site, then VR weaker at S7/S9 and
noisy.

``Dhivehi is an Indo-Aryan language derived from the Sinhalese
language of Sri Lanka. Despite the countries' close proximity to one
another, Maldivians and Sri Lankans do not always understand each
other.`` - Wikipedia? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 13 at 0500-0507, UR1 via WRMI, immediately
into `Ukraine: Security Issue` in English with the well-spoken YL --
but marred by too much Ukrainian clips to voice over, or at times,
under. VG into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Friday
May 13 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S9 with deep fades to S3 direct, no
jamming audible.

NOT confirmed Friday May 13 at 1815 on IRRS 7290, nor AM Italia 1323.
Tuned in earlier at 1754, no signal on 7290 from Bulgaria into
UTwente, and instead of *1800.9, it never came on! 1323 tuned in at
1806 just as synthyl ID in English as on 207, 918 and 1323 kHz - more
info from info@am-italia.it and ``Have a good listening``. Then music
fill, no Feature Story News or UN News as usual. Guess what, it is not
on 207 or 918 now either into nearby Noale SDR, only 1323. But no WOR
here either at 1815.5. Same canned ID repeated amid music loops at
1817, 1828, 1840. This operation is *so* uncoördinated.

Next airing of WOR 2138 however succeeds, on 1323 checked at 2056 and
presumably from 2030, S9+13 steady, still no 918 or 207. I also check
1323 into UTwente where it`s JBA with CCI. Next:

** U S A. Re 9455, WRMI: ``Glenn, the WRMI spurspikes below 9455 have
been going on for at least a couple of weeks. I can hear them well up

pretty much ruined otherwise decent reception of BBCWS via SMG at 0500

watt, sure, nighttime. Need to check whether it again be on at night
