** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wed Feb 23 at 1522 tune-in: both
Brasília SDRs are offline; at Pardinho is JBA, but Campo gets S2 from
LRA36: music and talk; 1528 ``Nacional Antártida Argentina, en todo el
país, la radio pública`` --- I assume they think this is relayed all
over Argentina on the Nacional network: is that true? Music and
talkbits alternate, frequent IDs. 1533 ``Radio Nacional Arcángel San
Gabriel`` ID; 1536 ``Nacional, la radio pública``. 1541 something
about Poland. 1543 email, song mentioning Esperanza but not the
themesong, never heard today. 1546 LRA36 & RNASG IDs.

BTW, it`s 10 degrees F in Enid, colder than Esperanza? Yes, much! See
https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/antarctica/esperanza-base
checked at 1740 UT, it`s a balmy +40 F there, melting. But at South
Pole it`s minus 50 F, whew! And guess from which direxion the wind is
blowing? North! Back to my logging:

1555 LRA36 & RNASG IDs. 1558 email, historical talk. Now it`s peaking
at S3. 1601 ID, efemérides, = historical/anniversary items, something
from the 1800s, more likely about continental Argentina than this
outpost. 1612 email, 15476. 1614 song with birdchirps. 1616 NAA, LRP
IDs. 1620 ID, song. 1623 the SDR times out after one hour. Check
Corral one in Argentina, JBA; nothing at LU4AA; 1625 nothing at west
Iceland; 1626 nothing at Montevideo. Maybe have just signed off, as
it`s high time. 1627 Pardinho check: only S8 noise level! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Feb 23 at 0718, only RHC still on but S9+10 of nothing
but hum. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.608+, Feb 23 at 2124, R. Cairo, S9+30 into UTwente with
extreme distortion, presumed English, totally unreadable. Something
remains egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Feb 23 at 0553, definite carrier already,
surely R. Kiribati a sesquihour after London sunset, rather than
anything TA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, Feb 23 at 0713, XEPPM with song in English about
monkeys with droning bassline, S9/+10 and better modulation than
usual. Eclectic music format and sometimes listenable. Always slightly
off-frequency-minus but not measured, compared e.g. to 6155 Austria.
Last report Feb 13 from Gianni Serra, Italy, put it on 6184.97 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, Feb 23 at 0551, PN, 25-watt NDB at PoNca
City is back on after latest outage; was still off during day Feb 22
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Feb 23 at 2307 after the news, REE token triweekly
English semihour N American frequency is not off the air, others not
checked as I`m tuned for content via VG Maryland remote: by Amy Egan
about Rosalía de Castro, Galician poet who promoted the Gallego
language which had been denigrated. Her collexion `Cantares Gallegos`
also set to music with some examples. Interview clips in Castilian
handled the right way, minimizing voice-overing into English (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.017+, Feb 23 at 2300, VOT English is not off the air
today, VG via UTwente, but at first I`m mainly listening to
simulSpain. ToH timesignals about 2 seconds apart. 2315 plays same
commentary as yesterday by the PhD student at Exeter about ``US
provoked Russia in order to maintain its global primacy`` --- huh??
Enough of that. Yet I get the impression that Turkey is siding with
Ukraine. Recheck 2354, already in IS, this time with English IDs,
rapid SAH and off at 2356* before it can switch to German, uncovering
PBS Xinjiang, East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide
against Uyghurs and other Moslems. If I were listening from within N
America, there would be less CCCCCCI from it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2126 monitoring: ``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:

Also confirmed via UTwente, Wednesday February 23 from 2200:19.5 on
WBCQ 7490.061v kHz as carrier offset plus, accurate since calibrated
against WWV 10000 the next minute varying slightly plus/minus 1 Hz.

** EGYPT. 9899.607, Feb 22 at 2156, R. Cairo very strong into UTwente,
slightly less suptorted than usual but still unlistenable. Something`s
always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, Feb 22 at 2314, VOG is back on after missing a few
days, making us fear it`s gone for good. S9+10/15 with music into
UTwente, but lower modulation level than Türkiye 5960. It was first
reported reactivated today at 1945 by Richard Langley, NB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.006, Feb 22 at 2317 via UTwente, VOT English
is on, but no guarantee it really started by 2300! S9+25/30 with
music, good modulation, 2318 COVID PSA; 2319 2-minute multilingual ID
reel filler; 2321 ``Wavelength Commentary`` penned by ---, PhD
candidate at University of Exeter(?), titled ``US provoked Russia in
order to maintain its global primacy`` --- huh?? Enough of that. 2348
recheck IS plays after generic sign-off for several English times.
2356 fade-down IS and restart, now with German IDs interspersed. 2400
5+1 timesignal with that from CCCCCCI JBA underneath; sign-on in
German for the 1230 outsending which really is supposed to be on SW,
15270. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Before next recheck
2410, VOT is off uncovering PBS Xinjiang with CNR1 in imperialist
Mandarin, land of ChiCom genocide, ``re-education`` and slave labor
among native Uyghurs and other Moslems of East Turkistan (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2126 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
February 22 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+12 into Minneapolis KiwiSDR.

** EGYPT. 9899.606+, Feb 21 at 2107 no signal yet into UTwente, but by
2116 recheck it`s on, S9+30 in suptorted English, totally unusable.
Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Feb 21 at 1544, JBA carrier, presumed AWR
Guam or Sri Lanka, both sites listed, scheduled until 1600.

15215, Mon Feb 21 from 1555 I am monitoring via Maryland SDR for Radio
Amrum/Öömrang, annual one-hour broadcast via FRANCE aimed at New York
where there are more Frisian expats than on the islands themselves.
Cuts on abruptly at *1600, VG S9+10/20 but with constant humwhine
undertone for entire hour. Sign-on in German, then 1601 English with
full details as 500 kW, crediting backers by name, coördinated with
annual bonfire ceremony at this very hour. 1602 into interview of
schoolteacher with frequent summaries in English of what has been
said, at approx.: 1609.8, 1614.5, 1620.5, 1622. I think this is not
the same recording as last year; at least refers once to what happened
in 2020.

1626 full ID again in German with telefon numbers, and English, same
as at sign-on. Announcer is Gerhard ---. 1628 different interview
starts with Mr and Mrs Peters, mentions Corona, and ``ankles`` more
than once in English summaries, meaning uncles? At 1630 a quick check
of direct reception to deep North America: S9/+10. More English pauses
at 1637.5, 1639.8; 1644.5 about the Frisian language being taught in
schools there two hours per week; 1650.5.

1656 full ID again, including two phone numbers, first of which is
046822688. 1658 modulation stops, still humwhine carrier and now also
JBA warbling like jamming, until cut off at 1700.3*. An unique annual
tradition continues. Despite the contact info given, apparently no
QSLing, other than proxy by MBR transmission provider. Following my
imminent alert to the WOR iog, widely reported across our continent
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, Feb 21 at 2107, no signal from VOG into UTwente.
Others checking lately have not been hearing it either. We fear it may
be an earlier permanent QRT than expected. Still nothing at 0037 Feb
22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15530.040, Mon Feb 21 at 1544, JBA off-frequency carrier.
KSDA is scheduled 1530-1600 in Tibetan except days 12347 in English =
Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed/Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also GERMANY [non]

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 21 at 2325, no signal direct from VOT English.
Must have come on way late, for at 2341 it`s S9+30, VG modulation into
UTwente with that COVID PSA, music. Wonderful IS playing by 2352; 2356
fades audio down audiblizing the CCCCCCI; then restarting IS with
German IDs interspersed twice a minute. Pause at 0000 Feb 22,
timesignal mixing out of step with East Turkistan, standard
denunciation; s/on in German with detailed irrelevant satellite
parameter info. Not until 0004 do the Nachrichten start. Announcer has
poor mumbly enunciation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.
Still going at 0014 into music, and 0022 check in German. No telling
how long this will last --- until the sleepyrator upwake. Bonus not
likely to last the entire hour, too bad: ahh, Schluß at 0024*
uncovering imperialist Mandarin from Xinjiang.

BTW, the guy who runs the jammer against Dengê Welat is trying to
control how people speaking other languages pronounce Turkey; the
Germans are all set with their facility for umlauting! Next step:
resurrecting the Ottoman Empire? No, that won`t do: footstools!

``Goodbye Turkey, hello Türkiye
Turkey is rebranding its internationally recognised name as “Türkiye”.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the new name “represents and
expresses the culture, civilisation and values of the Turkish nation
in the best way”. But the change is about more than phonetic
pronunciation. BBC Monitoring’s Ilgin Karlidag explains.

This is reminiscent of Ivory Coast insisting that even in English it`s
to be called Côte d`Ivoire, substituting one colonial language for
another. But how should we say it in these EiBi languages?
BAO Baoulé: Cote [sic] d'Ivoire (2m) [bci]

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Feb 20 at 2114 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS has
resumed music after a spell of dead air again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2126 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
February 20 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, Villa Estense,

Knoxville SDR.

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 332 MCW kHz, Feb 21 at 0715 UT, normally a mix here
between 1000 watt dash and QT Thunder Bay, Ontario, and 400 watt
weaker but closer IC Wichita KS. But the latter JBA call now sounds
more like FC. Nonesuch currently listed on 332, 333 or 334, but RNA
classaxe does show an FCY on 332, 25 watts at Forrest City, Arkansas,
last reported in 2005y. Maybe miskeying IC or confused by mixing with
something else. An N added to an I would sound like an F (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7355 & 6030 & 5980, Feb 20 at 0723, wall-of-noise jamming,
and slightly lighter pulse jamming on 7375, 7435, all Radio Martí
frequencies which are OFF the air at this hour. Something`s always
wrong at the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command. Think how many
undernourished Cubans could have been fed nutritious meals for the
juicy cost of all this pointless noise! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Sun Feb 20 at 0728, RHC English S9+10, still on here
only, no 49 or 59 m, opening `Jazz Place`. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420, Feb 20 at 0725, NO signal from V of Greece,
at a Sunday time usually occupied by Greek Orthodox music. Later on
Sundays into UT Mondays, it`s always on a break. Hope this does not
portend earlier abolition of SW than projected March 31. I have a
totally unconfirmed report that Feb 23 would be the last day.
Propagation from Europe is certainly funxional: 9645 at 0725 Feb 20,
Sunday-only Ukrainian liturgy from SMG Vatican RCC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9400, Feb 20 at 0730, music matching 5890,
i.e. the TOMBS cult via BULGARIA as scheduled, and WWCR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, Feb 20 at 1451, HIFER beacon K6FRC with JBA IDs
over and over, listed as 1.8 milliwatts at Patterson CA; vs CODAR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 14280 USB, Feb 19 at 1951, W4A, special event ham station
celebrating 80th anniversary of VOA. By 1952 has switched to a
different operator`s voice, Dave. Making very quick contacts one after
another, QRZ. Says he is 25 miles west from VOA Greenville
[Grimesland] site, running 400 watts. Contacts include K9MOI, NP4AC;
his signal much better than most of them, especially at 1954 KB9WOO
with 9 watts. Mostly rate ``5,9, eastern North Carolina``.

There are two other special eventers, stacked as V/O/A. Details at
https://w4amc.com/2022/01/07/80th-anniversary-of-voa/
W4V at HQ in Washington, W8O at Bethany, Ohio. According to
https://dxheat.com/dxc/
those two are currently working on 14300 and 14286 respectively.

At 2055 I hear on 14300, W7KPH in Las Vegas NV but seems about some
net rather than working W4V. Activity span is 14-22 UT both today and
tomorrow Feb 20, so maybe will catch them then. Also on 40 & 80 m I
haven`t heard, circa 7280 & 3880 LSBs.

dxheat also registers W7Y on 14247 for the WGY centennial, but I
haven`t heard it.

However, I also run across a surprise special on 14277 USB at 2058 Feb
19: W7P calling CQ from Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff AZ, with no
immediate response. For the 92nd anniversary of discovery of Pluto by
Clyde Tombaugh:

https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/w7p-pluto-special-event-is-on-the-air-from-lowell-observatory.800941/
BTW I attended some events at NMSU Las Cruces with Mr Tombaugh,
emeritus.

Chex the next morning Feb 20: at 1457, on 14300-USB some other net. At
1458, 14280-USB mentions VOA, but next station heard is Gerson in
Alexandria, Virginia; and at 1500 K4US, special event from Mt Vernon
celebrating Washington`s birthday; which is not really today:

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun Feb 20 at 0029 tune-in for `Postcard Panorama`
on WRMI scheduled weekly at 0030-0045 --- instead, some guy with an
accent is talking about logging beacons past 0031, some music; 0038
Radio Igloo address, music; 0044 about software for MW DXing, Radio
Igloo ID, music. Igloo is this week`s guest pirate on Texas Radio
Shortwave [not Texas Shortwave Radio as on WRMI grid] as publicized
for 0000-0100 UT Sunday. As I wrote to Tammy Walker,

``I enjoyed your show which I heard the first week of January and
repeated on the second, so I assumed it would be repeated further
until a new one in February, and had not retuned, until tonight, when
I find it gone from 5950 at 0030 UT Sunday, and also gone from the
WRMI program schedule; but it is still mentioned on the programming
page and on your website. So what happened? Hope you will be back.
Best wishes, Glenn Hauser``. No reply yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Feb 20 around 0115 tune-in, `TOUTA` already
playing in $ tereo on WTWW-2 webcast. Since I`ve already missed a
quarter of simultaneous `Encore` classical music, I`ll make a point of
catching its repeat 26 hours later. At 0148, Bob Heil says, ``here we
are at the top of the hour`` [huh?], so starts to ``button up``, but a
little more music until 0152.7 ID and back to rock (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** VANUATU. 5040, Feb 20 at 0729, JBA carrier presumed R. Vanuatu.
Just a few minutes earlier, RHC Spanish was still going on 5040. No
signal now on 7260. Others were hearing RV reactivated there but off
circa 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 20 at

kHz. A long time since I last heard 531, surely the 600 kW ALGERIA,
tho there are also listed some low powers in Spain, asking to be
swamped? Most of the others likely Spain, UK, altho checking now 3+
hours earlier than bedtime should get better results. Has RTA 531 been
off air or limited sked? WRTH 2022 shows both 531 and 600/300 kW 891
kHz are 24 hours, but I`m still not ever hearing 891 which used to
give WLS a het for its Hertz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

``That is or was the home of these iHeart stations absenteely owned
and licensed to OKC: KTOK 1000, KREF 94.7, KXXY 96.1, 98.5 xltr, KTST
101.9, KJYO 102.7. Per FCC Queries. IHM also has a Tulsa cluster and a
few other OK stations outside the OKC market. So what is going on
here. iHeart pulling out of OKC or just moving to another
building?Glenn Hauser, Enid``

Adam Rivers replied: ``Many iHeart facilities have downsized over the
last year or so. Mine has not, but buildings have merged, etc. like
Lancaster into Harrisburg, PA, etc.``

On Feb 18, John Zondlo replied: ``The auction conducted Thursday
was of property at our old 50 Penn Place offices. We have only brought
over to our new location a handful of items. Honestly, much of that
stuff has seen its better days, and I'm not sure why some folks even
bothered to bid on it.

At 50 Penn, our home for 44 years, we occupied about half of the 10th
floor of this office building. The 10th floor was occupied by sales
and management. We also had the entire 11th floor, occupied by
programming, for our 7 stations here. We also occupied a portion of
the 12th floor for the Oklahoma News Network, 4 farm networks, and the
Oklahoma Baptist University sports network (which I produce). With all
of the cuts made by iHeart/Clear Channel in recent years, we had way
too much space for too few people.

Our new digs are at 6525 N. Meridian in OKC in a 6 story office tower
(recently renovated, barely occupied). We have 4,000 square feet now,
a fraction of what we had at 50 Penn. The broadcast and office
equipment is, for the most part, brand spanking new.

There is still quite a bit of broadcast equipment left at 50 Penn that
is being inventoried and will be disposed of in various ways.

So, to sum it up, we are still alive and well in OKC and serving our
area to the best of ability with a skeleton crew. And I say that as
I'm here at KGHM 1340 producing a LOCAL high school basketball game.
John Zondlo - Yukon, OK``

Thanks, John. He is/was better(?) known as an FM DX editor for VHF-UHF
Digest of the Worldwide TV-FM DX Association; who refuses to publish
my few but detailed FM DX logs since they would occupy more than one
line each. Yes, KGHM 1340 is another IHM station I overlooked, since
it is licensed to suburb Midwest City for no particular reason. Did I
miss another? To total magic 7 would have to include that one

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, KOSU, Sat Feb 19 at 1830 UT, I am listening on
caradio on way to and from Box 1684, with a very interesting show
about the origins of tape recording in Nazi Germany, and later into
Vietnam war archive interviews; next week to be about how ``cassette
tapes created the Internet``. Closed at 1859 UT without any program
ID. Must have been `Radiolab` as per KOSU sked. All I want to do is
find a recording/podcast of this week`s complete show since I heard
only some fragments. But program website
https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/radiolab
is completely unhelpful, not even a search funxion: all kinds of stuff
in segments for years, and some seem on related topix, but I give up!
One thing I noticed that in SFX of tuning an AM radio in Britain
overnight after BBC signed off, hearing classical music on strong
German stations: did Hitler make the musicians play all night? we hear
squishy noises and RTTY! Better not be on AM!! Or a horrible radio
picking up SW images. How could Radio people be so ignorant about the
basix? But such nonsense is standard for tuning-around SFX (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Feb 19 at 0655, S9+30 of dead air on WTWW-1; while

paying the bills and salary (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
