** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Nov 3 at 1531 tune-in via Brasil SDR,
LRA36 is on this Wednesday S5-S6, but signing-off, ``todo por hoy``
until next miércoles, then complete Antártida song about Base
Esperanza et al. Of course, 1535 continues immediately with more rock
music until really chopped off air at 1550*, including the reduced
carrier. The playbacks on Saturdays have been absent a few weeks, but
you never know without checking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6230, Nov 3 at 0557, RHC English JBA on leapfrog mixing
product of 6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz beyond. 6165 is S9+30, 6100
S9+20/30. 6060 also on with humbuzz at S9+30, but no `frog audible on
6140, nor any other combos. 6000 still on at S9+40. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6030, Nov 3 at 0600, just caught R. Martí before
quitting on extended schedule, temporarily? They also did this last
year. Heavy jamming of course continues, just in case, blocking any
CFVP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157 & 7215, Nov 3 at 0602, centres of lite pulse jamming
still going after weeks. The incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command
apparently once found some objexionable exile hams there and remains
unrelenting, as if hams could not QSY anywhere. What would CO2KK say?
Isn`t IARU raising a ruckus about this? Now also PJ against nothing on
7335, 7365, 7435; and 7355 strongest mixed with a tone, all R. Martí
frequencies used only at earlier hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13638 & 13762, Nov 3 at 1453, weak spurblobs out of RHC 13700
which is S9+10 undermodulated and with F# tone, plus and minus ~62
kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 1513 recheck, all gone (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 17795-17800-17805 DRM, Nov 3 at 1712, TDF with marine
weather for MiniTransAt yacht race, S9 via Maryland SDR, mostly solid,
but lo-fi at usual 8.08 kbps, SNR 20, DRM mode B, Chan 10 kHz
displayed, humale voice in French, 1713 switch to huwoman voice in
French-accented English, 1728 back to male in French but mixes in some
numbers in English; 1732 YL in French but also some English numbers;
not weather now but ordinally up to 50th, presumably race rankings.
1741 seems to be concluding bilingually; 1742 little bits of music,
amid dropouts, a different tune fragment each time, now down to S8-S7,
SNR to 15. 1750 quits modulating but still on air at S6, off by 1758
check. This 17-18 transmission on 17800 is on the displayed DRM
schedule roster under Télédiffusion de France. But beware, still also
shows Radio Martí on 7345 DRM despite its disappearance months ago.

Chris Mackerell, NZ, asks, ``Were you able to decode the data part of
the transmission? Previously the DRMcast contained a data stream of
images and weather maps in the same stream as the audio. The audio was
always decodable, but the pictures weren't. I haven't been able to
check myself yet, so am curious. Maybe they're just audio this time.
73 Chris``

Neither then nor today was I aware of any images. Maybe I don`t know
where to look for them beyond the conventional Kiwi DRM display. Glenn
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 11670, Nov 3 at 2310, only RHC Spanish to be
heard, // 9535 music. If REE be on there, it`s totally covered; and no
signal on alt. 11685 during token English semihour Wed, VG on 9690, VP
on 11940 & 12030. All checked via Maryland remote (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, one of my largest
harvests, but many even JJBBA, Nov 3 at 0610-0618 UT: 531, 549, 558-2,

Wednesday, November 03 2021

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6150, Nov 2 at 2224, discussion of racketeering,
poor signal, sounds like BBC English, indeed this hour only via USAGM
Tinang, PHILIPPINES. No other signal now.

I`m looking for the brand new Brazilian SW station, imagine that!
which Bryan Clark in NZ discovered, heard since Oct 31, peaking
0630-0900, ID with help of Brazilian DXers as Rádio Saturno in Belo
Horizonte, 92.3 and 6150, and QSLed already. Apparently not on MW.

Searching, I find several Youtube clips of it dating back to July 14,
2021! How did this escape the notice of the broader DX world?

Bryan estimates power only around 1 kW. And maybe it`s not on air in
the evenings, as seems to be the case now. Other 6150s to avoid during
night hours: Romania Spanish at 03-04; VOA Thailand in Burmese at
2330-0030. Germany, S Korea start at 0700 but more or less limited to
the dayside (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7325, Nov 2 at 1447, weak algo with het from 7326. CRI in
Filipino is scheduled this semi-hour per Aoki; per HFCC a double entry
on 7325: 500 kW, 165 degrees from Beijing site, and 100 kW, 130
degrees from Nanning site. Also in HFCC only, a reservation for some
``JIC MIC`` clandestine, 14-17, 300 kW, 290 degrees from Yamata (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 9620, Nov 2 at 2218, CCI in Chinese and more
Chinese adding up to S7-S8; this hour has CNR1 jamming and VOA via
Tinang, PHILIPPINES (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7355, Nov 2 at 0623, noise jamming with a
whine/carrier about 7355.37. No sign of R Martí now, but which has
extended to 0600* ex -0400* on SW. Maybe will be -0700* after DST?

7435, Nov 2 at 0625, pulse jamming against nothing, as R Martí is
scheduled here 2300-0400 only. This PJ consists of approx. 30 rapid
pulses, a pause and then approx. 40 of them, alternating (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13820, Nov 2 at 2206, pulse jamming against nothing since OCB
finishes at 2000. At least this is evidence the DCJC knows RM be here
sometime, unless a relic of B-20 season. Also weaker jamming still
audible on 13605, the A-21 channel. RM 13820 so strong here when on
that I cannot detect jamming. Equally super during the 22 UT hour now
are 9565, 7375 and 7355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11950, Nov 2 at 2215, RHC is S9-S3 but undermodulated during
the `Mesa Redonda` TV soundtrack alternate Spanish; // 6000 at 2226 is
S9+25/15 and even worse, just barely modulated. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GALAPAGOS ISLANDS. 18150-USB, Nov 2 at 2200, HD8R uttering this
call every few seconds, alternating with AB8F apparently trying to
contact him. I hear both well, but they can`t hear each other? Then
HD8R adds ``up 5`` meaning he is listening only on 18155-USB. His
accent is so heavy I had a hard time understanding his fonetix. No
details at QRZ.com beyond this:

``HD8R Galapagos Islands flag Galapagos Islands
Dxfriends Dxpedition
San Cristobal
Galapagos Islands
Page managed by EA5RM Lookups: 157850``

but linx to http://www.dxfriends.com
which leads to:

with a camel? mascot which are not among the Galápagos fauna; but the
Friends started out with Western Sahara a sesquidecade ago; now a
14-member team consisting of 6 from Spain, 4 from France, 1 from
Ecuador, 1 from Colombia, and 2 from Italy.

``We´ll be active from October 26th to November 7th, from 6 to 160
meters (including Warc bands) on CW, SSB and Digi modes with at least
4 stations on the air at the same time. HD8R grid locator is: EI59gc``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15215, Nov 2 at 2204, SE Asian song, S8-S4, something new
here. Aoki shows it`s KSDA daily in Vietnamese hour (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** JAPAN [and non]. 11815, Nov 2 at 1404, NHK dominant over TRT making
SAH, adding up to S7. By 1439 Turkish music dominates, still SAH from
NHK. They overlap at 14-15, but don`t care about the collision here,
target for neither. Hope they each have no problem with the other in
their own targets: 235 degrees from Yamata; 310 degrees from TRT for W
Europe, but we are directly beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Nov 2 at 1612, Kashmir Civitas weekly Tuesday
clandestine via IRRS ROMANIA, S7-S9 into UTwente, now one hour later
at 1600 due to standard time in Europe, not Kashmir --- and it`s
almost all in English. YL with American accent interviews OM with S
Asian accent, but she apparently also has SAs roots. First about his
background as a musician and documentary film-maker, and I wonder if
this is really about Kashmir, but then mentioning India and Pakistan;
1625 she invites him to say something in Kashmiri -- not Urdu, and he
does, alternating with English. 1626 brief transmitter break as they
are upwrapping, ``fight against India for freedom``, 1628 concluding
with their names, totally unreadable, chopped off at 1629* with no RRI
IS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 9560.044, Nov 2 at 0620, S3-S5 talk in
African-accented English. This hour is VOA relay from Pinheira,
typically off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11670, Nov 2 at 2210, REE is JBA but // VG 9690, also 12030
and distorted 11940 -- NOT on 11685. This is strange, since Wolfgang
Bueschel has been reporting 11685, not 11670, since B-21 began,
including earlier today with a silly ballgame. Is REE indecisive about
which African frequency to use, even during a single day`s span?
Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2110 monitoring; next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW

Spanish; cambio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0036 UT November 3


Glenn Hauser logs November 1-2, 2021  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, November 02 2021

** CANADA. 269-MCW kHz, Nov 1 at 0650 UT, ND beacon dash and UDE, 50
watts from Delta, Manitoba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 9665, re heavy ACI to WOR on Ch 292, Germany, 9670
at 1330: New HFCC shows CRI Russian at 1300-1400 is 500 kW, 292
degrees from Xi`an site, not East Turkistan = land of imperialist
ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems. 292 is listed as 25
kW available 24 hours, non-direxional (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 17800.095V, Nov 1 at 1501, MiniTransAt yacht race marine
weather in French, météo, after a bit of music, S9. Carrier is audibly
and visibly wobbling, plus/minus at least 7 Hz, centred more or less
here but difficult to pinpoint. I wonder if clients get a discount for
a defective Issoudun transmitter or even know about it.

Others continue reporting the DRM version at 1700 on 17795-17805.
Chris Mackerell, NZ, says, ``If they use the "DRMcast" stuff again you
won't be able to decode it without borrowing one of the special
"suitcase" receiver/decoders from one of the yachts. Cheers, Chris``.
Well, I had no problem decoding it with an ordinary KiwiSDR.

And Hansjoerg Biener, Germany, says, ``On earlier occasions, DXers
were told that neither TDF nor organizers of the race were interested
in reception reports from outside`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 11670, Nov 1 at 2303, collision of two weak
stations; has REE stayed here instead of 11685 which is HFCC
registered, also in Aoki for B-21 until 2400, ex-2300; but no signal
for Africa on 11685? The other of course is RHC still starting at
2300, which had only a small overlap with REE. I do not get an REE //
confirmation now, so could be CNR2 as logged Oct 22, tho not scheduled
now. REE anyhow is VG anyhow for M/W/F English to us on 9690, // 11940
SAm and 12030 ME (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 12125, Nov 1 at 1513, something new on previously
vacant frequency, Chinese? and music mixing, S9-S7. New HFCC B-21
shows USAGM via TINIAN at 1500-1600, 250 kW, 296 degrees in BOD
dialect of Tibetan. WRTH shows RFA also on 12125 back in B-20; now the
ChiCom jammer is already back on it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11815.009, Nov 1 at 1508, something new here for B-21;
certainly not Brasil or Japan; interview in language S9/+10 with some
intonation similar to French? but not. Of course, it`s Türkish from
TRT back here for the season, 1400-1700, 250 kW, 310 degrees USward
from Emirler, where something`s always erroneous, slightly
off-frequency. Japan had finished 11815 at 1500 but now also listed
for 1500-1700, no sign of that now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 1 at 2301, VOT English to N America confirmed
here on B-21 sked, S9+20 but noisy, ex-2200 on 9830. As I tune in,
warning that the 22-23 and 03-04 [sic] broadcasts were recorded
earlier, out of date info and probably also uttered entire out-of-date
A21 English sked. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY. 6125, Nov 2 at *0358, VOT carrier finally cuts on, S9/+10
into Maryland SDR, but no mod, no IS or IDs. Trouble keeping it on
air, never any mod applied, just as well: -0400*, *0403.5-0404*,
*0405; *0407.5* split second off-and-on, then stays,
just-barely-modulated toward end of English newscast, something about
vaccines. It`s ``normal`` listening level if I turn the Kiwi and my
own volume to max. Something`s almost erroneous at Emirler.

I had wanted to hear whether the opening schedule were totally wrong
A-21, as suspected but missed heading previous repeat at 2300 on 5960.
Anyhow, now confirmed on new B-21 final repeat at latened winter time
and lowered winter frequency, ex-0300 on 7275. Now the // is 7285
toward ME and JBA here S5-S9. 0411-0413 `Review of Turkish Press`
about Turkish involvement in some Romeeeting, music. Now it`s back to
webcasts from my two favorite New Mexico stations` other/global music
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 299-MCW kHz, Nov 1 at 0649 UT, ND beacon HW, which is 25
watts from Wilmington / Kuebler, Ohio. I was tuned to 297-USB. Nothing
listed on 297 itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.9v, Nov 1 at 2302, secret replay of semi-`UBMP` on
WBCQ, good S9+20/30. Less need to resort to webcast, especially since
UB`s shows remain deliberately monophonic even there. 2330 chop to ID,
few notes of `Camp Constitution Radio`` theme/jingle, and NO spot
commercial this time, right into show. From next week of course, to
pretend to be at the ``same`` time by local clox, *real* Universal
times will be one hour later, i.e. original at 23-24 Sundays,
semi-repeat at 0000-0030 UT Tuesdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Monday, November 01 2021

** CUBA. 9710, Oct 31 at 2318, RHC distorted and modulation cutting
off and on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 31 at 2319, RHC distorted, big hum, and
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TAJIKISTAN. 7491, Oct 31 at 2335, considerable het to 7490- WBCQ,
presumably V. of Tibet, as in Aoki at 2335-2340 only, but heard longer
than that. Remote in Maryland shows carrier offset only 2-3 Hz plus
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2110 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday Oct 31 at 2125 the 2100 UT on IRRS SW via AM Italia 918 kHz,
S9+17 into Noale SDR over lite QRM. New winter timing ex-2000 UT.

Also confirmed Sun Oct 31 at 2234 the 2230 on WRMI 5950, S7-S9 into
Maryland SDR. Simul on 9955 preempted this week for Satanic show.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 1 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+20; 9395 S9+25;
9455 S9+10 but sounds much softer, all into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 1 at 0230, ex-0130 on WRN N America webcast

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 1 at 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-, S6,
down to S5 by 0324, and -53 Hz per Maryland SDR = 6159.947. Adjacent
6165 RHC is JBA with a warble, but 6150 RRI in Spanish is huge, S9+20.
From next week, 0400v. Next:

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

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702.

WRMI broadcasts of Systems B, G and L are run on Eastern time, which
means these WOR airings should shift one real UT hour later from
Sunday November 7 after 0600 UT, to these new times:
Fri 2330 5950
Sat 0230 9395
Sun 0030 5950
Sun 2330 5950 9955
Mon 0130 9395 9495
Thu 0130 9395 9495
Others stay at same UT; and the Wed 2100 on 7780 is canceled, replaced
by RAE in German. -- I had to point out that the 1600 UT on 7780 would
not propagate to Europe! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Oct 31 at 2230, WRMI with special Satanic show billed
as for Hallowe`en, but sounds much like the previous shows explaining
the ``religion`` by robovoices. Among other things, Satanists do not
believe there is a devil, so???? Preëmpted the current only 9955
airing of World of Radio, presumably back next Sunday with timeshift
to 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, Nov 1 at 0202, TRSW Halloween special publicized on
WRMI, but remotes in MO and MB can`t get a decent signal: MUF too low.
Simultaneously on VG 5950, Encore at S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, Oct 31 at 2215 UT, Fox Sports Radio, i.e. KWKH the
only modulation, but suppressed by a stronger open carrier making a
fast SAH, i.e. KLEY Wellington KS, 250 watts ``daytime`` on
groundwave, still running dead air only. Why bother? (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. 6940-AM, Oct 31 at 2211, JBA S8-S9 talk and music,
presumably pirate; lots of Hallowe`en activity in HF Underground, but
nothing on this frequency, the only one I hear at this time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7570.1, Oct 31 at 2213, JBA carrier, certainly not WRMI,
I figure could be an off-frequency Sound of Hope, but Aoki has neither
that nor jammer on 7570 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, Oct 31 at 0044, pirate music S5-S6
into same Georgia SDR I had for WRMI/WOR check
earlier. Too much else is going on Saturday nights to keep with it,
but almost-Hallowe`en should lead to increased piracy. 0109 recheck,
now SSTV beepery until 0111*. WOR iog member Bob Butterfield in
Columbia, Maryland was also monitoring and says this was Wolverine
Radio. Many more logs here including the cheesecake SSTV:
It was a Hallowe`en show but not keyed to a specific word (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Oct 31 at 0045, only other pirate audible
is here, loud rockmusic S4-S5, but gone by 0050. Bob Butterfield also
reports this, as Outhouse Radio. Many more logs here including several
fuzzy SSTVs:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sun Oct 31 at 0703 I am unfortunately still awake so
check all the RHC 49m frequencies for weekly Esperanto show,
supposedly on this one, but it and all others are off. Presumably from
next week with DST just over, the nominal time will be 0800 UT
Sundays. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, Oct 31 at 1426, noise jamming against
nothing, as Radio Martí has just made its habitual and totally
predictable B-season switch to 13820 where it`s VG with no jamming
audible. The incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command are always
playing catch-up, eventually (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sun Oct 31 at 1509, RHC weekly Esperanto confirmed
still here, S9/+10 but undermodulated; // 11760 even less modulated.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. Presumably these go to 1600 Sundays
from next week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7390, Oct 31 at 1427, music S9+10 with flutter,
presumed RNZI on its new B-21 frequency. This is advantageous for us N
American outliers, holds up longer and further into dayside than any
49mb frequency. Schedule on 7390 is 1259-1650 except Sat to 1758, the
day off for DRM. Reactivated 11725 also audible after 0700 but only
fair. It now runs 0659-1258 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 18, 62-7 KOPX, Oct 31 at 0445 UT, I see a new
subchannel ``Newsy``. I had not noticed a -7 until I saw it mentioned
on OKCtalk. It`s owned by Scripps, supposedly no-frills all-news,
originally a pay-cable channel, but changed to OTA, not cable at all,
rolled out Oct 1 on ION subchannels which Scripps now owns, and per
rabbitears.info already in a whole lot of markets including majors,
not least #50, OKC. But does it have a default far-right agenda like
OAN, Newsmax, even the disappointing NewsNation out of WGN? Will have
to watch it some, or find some reviews. Here`s their asserted plan:

(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Oct 31 at 1510, REE now on B-21 frequencies including
this for N America, but of course it`s a JBA carrier over full-day
path and should be on 11, 13 or even 15 MHz band before descending
after dark. 11940 for S America is also JBA carrier; 11670 to Africa
slightly better JBA and not on 11685; but best by far for us is
reactivated 12030, S9/+10 off the back toward Mideast; disposable
anyway now in stupid sports talk. M/W/F English will now be at 2300 UT
ex-2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 341-MCW kHz, Oct 31 at 0647 UT, ND beacon DNI, 25 watts from
Sherman/Denison TX on the wrong side of the River Red; still in
absence of EI Enid, and of its usual #2, OIN Oberlin KS (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2110 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
October 30 starting at 1957 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, only
S5-S7 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Sat Oct 30 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+22/27 into Georgia

Also confirmed UT Sun Oct 31 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good direct.

Also confirmed UT Sun Oct 31 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 11
minutes into so started circa 0316. S9+8 but ACI de LSB with band full
of contesters including 1866-LSB K3LR CQ Contest, and someone on

Also confirmed Sun Oct 31 at 1330.5 on WMRI Europe via Channel 292,
Germany, 9670, already a sesquiminute into so started early at 1329.
S8-S9 into UTwente, not as good as before when at 1230, but
propagation is probably degraded today. Worse, there is heavy ACI from
9665 with CRI Russian S9+15, no doubt via EAST TURKISTAN but no such
transmission found in A-21 or B-21 schedules; tho EiBi shows CNR5
Cross-Strait Radio long before and after this hour. Need to tune USB
to lessen it a bit, but also China radio war continues on 9680, S9+20.
Maybe Ireland be at a better skip distance? Galway SDR gets it no
better, 9670 weaker at S6-S8, but ACI also weaker. 9670 is aimed
toward N America, so how about Maryland SDR? It is JBA S4/S5 but
hardly sufficient on 9 MHz over a full-day path. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy [ex-2000]
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE {pre-empted Oct 31}
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW; 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
0230 UT Monday WRN webcast, expected ex-0130
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE

one real UT hour later

** U S A. Re `AAAWWW` on WBCQ Oct 30, John Carver replies: ``Glenn,
Reading through your log postings today and seeing my report in print,
it occurs to me that I left something out. The second time Allan
started talking about the superstation and how well it was working,
Angela reminded him that they still could not change the antenna
configuration. Allan said that was true but what they were using now
was working just fine. Sorry. John, Mid-North Indiana`` I reply:

```John, OK, but don`t be sorry. I remember hearing that part myself
but did not note it down. But I`m not sure exactly what ``antenna
configuration`` mean. Obviously they are rotating it again. Maybe
means stuck on one frequency only. 73, Glenn``` -- and John replies:

``Well sir. I could be wrong but wasn't one of the selling points of
the antenna was that it could be configured as several different
dipoles, a single radiator, a curtain array etc. I'm not really a tech
guy and it's been a long time since I heard someone explain the
antenna's different functions so am sucking most of it out of my
thumb. I just assumed that was what was meant by can't change
configuration. John`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), Oct 30 at 2354, WTWW-2 webcast once again has
already started `Theater Organ Under the Arch`, not music now but
presumed George Wright talking about his early organic experiences;
music after 0000 Oct 31, but 0030 recheck, now with heavily percussed
jazz in $ so TOUTA is over already, not an hour long or started way
earlier? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
