** EGYPT. 9899.605v, Feb 18 at 2115 via UTwente, certainly R. Cairo on
signature off-frequency, and signature extremely distorted but not
suppressed modulation. Should be in English, but my brain cannot lock
onto it as English, or Arabic, but what? Intonation seems more like
Russian, maybe, which is an RC language but scheduled at 19-20 on
9510. I cannot recognize a single word in any known language. At 2130
there is a 5+1 timesignal, more talk, non-English? By 2222 maybe I can
make it English; at 2242 maybe utters ``goodbye``, music; 2144.5 tone
to 2245* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. Altho WORLD OF RADIO was scheduled to be
pre-empted on this, the third Friday, February 18, from IRRS 7290 and
1323 kHz at 1915 UT, I check remotes anyway just in case. Turned on at
1858, nearby Noale SDR is getting NO signal from AM Italia on 1323; at
1903 it`s hearing German, i.e. from Romania`s domestic minority
service, which has always been a QRM problem; ex-918 only with Spain,
and no LW 207 either. 7290 via Bulgaria never comes on air either! As
monitored via UTwente. Past 1915 still nothing.

WORLD OF RADIO 2126 confirmed, however, on 1323 kHz only, Fri Feb 18
in progress at 2141 check, so AM Italia is back on air, S9+10. It may
not have been at first check 2115, but distracted by Cairo did not get
back to it by 2130. Now as usual, no QRM problem on 1323. But at 2154
in my 4790 item, modulation chops off as I am saying ``Tom Ca--[ll
Theatre]``. Dead air for more than a minute, 2156 music fill; 2200 no
ID but JIP `Feature Story News`. Off before next check at 2221. Next:

0230 UT Saturday WRMI 9395 to NNW

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

** SPAIN. 12030, Feb 18 at 2252, is today`s missing frequency from
REE, checked at Maryland SDR: backward for ME it`s often as good as
9690 direct to N America, which is S9+30 today; the other 25 mbs are
still on, 11940 S9/+10 and 11685 S7/S5, all in time for token English
Friday at 2300-2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 18 at 2320, VOT English is VG into UTwente, now
starting `Feeling Supreme` segment, this time delivered by
heavily-accented YL, about ``fat-in-liver disease/syndrome`` which is
problematic if over 10%. VG but some hum and by now the usual CCCCCCI
undercurrent. Signal strength merits max bandwidth of 9 kHz but audio
input is still lo-fi ``telco quality`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Feb 19 at 0100-0202, AAAWWW on WBCQ webcast,
notes with paraphrases of A&A`s comments, often yelling over each
other, mostly far-right ranting. Most of which I gh strongly disagree
with. Open window and yell out ``I`m mad as hell and won`t take it any
more``. I`m white so I`m no good. Don`t make bad choices because you
have too much freedom. Boycott Land-o-Lakes because they took an
Indian lady off their butter boxes. Vacuum state of horrible
leadership. Communist China is taking over all US branches of
government, responsible for puppet Biden being president. We have to
wait for Trump to come back in 2024 and fix all this.

At 0135, datestamp as 18 February YOOLF 2022, trimulcasting on 7490,
6160, 4790 - none checked here. Got rid of AT&T as too costly via
copper pairs, so new phone for show is 207-286-5483 - but there were
no calls put on air, I think. Fuel cost is up 50% and electricity will
be doubling. May be hard to keep WBCQ in business. Looking into
energy- and cost-saving modifications, such as pulse modulation.

There is no true ownership of property in the US since you can lose it
by not paying property taxes. 0141 quoting Chuck Kelly about how radio
is not going away despite TV, streaming. Radio listening is up among
younger Brits. A&A don`t have a smart speaker, too creepy listening
all the time. 0150 anti-Biden, Hillary, AOC, Warren quotes from signs.
Also anti-Trudeau. WBCQ may have so start a ``Radio Free Canada``
transmitter. Allan for at least the third time recently makes the
explicit false claim that no privately owned SW is allowed by the
government in Canada. You`d think he would know aboot CFRX if not
CFVP! There is a ``dark`` government which could get rid of Allan.
0159 prayer; runs over 2 minutes until joining Hal Turner in progress
at 0202. Standard disclaimer! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ASCENSION. 21630, Feb 18 at 1557, S4/S5 open carrier, 1558 Bow
Bells, i.e. BBC about to open one hour only of English aimed 114
degrees at half power 125 kW per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Feb 18 at 0740, S9/+20 of dead air from the only RHC
still transmitting; sleepyrators zzz? Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21690, Feb 18 at 1557, exploring 13m beyond 21525 WRMI, JBA
signal here, i.e. end of Swahili hour of RFI. Very few signals are
even on the 13m air during out daytime. See also ASCENSION (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 5910, another check Feb 18 for the weekly Friday new
clandestine, Channel 1 TV originating in Canoga Park, California. Last
week it was half an hour of dead air but meanwhile, the source was
identified. Monitoring Feb 18 via UTwente heard abrupt *1730, S9/+10
of dead air again with lite hum, but 1732 cut on abruptly modulation
in progress. Talk in presumed Farsi, bit of music, crowd noise,
mentions Iran, and a few times, Kordestan, anthem-like choral music;
interview for a while, then monolog until 1753.5 a snippet of the same
music, DA and 1754.6* cut off air already. Occasionally was a bit of
breakup, not sure if transmitter or receiver-caused. Never heard a
word of English, nor the reported ID in Farsi of ``Kanal Yek TV``, but
could have missed it. Site believed Uzbekistan, as in EiBi presumably
derived from WOR iog research, but still not in HFCC or Aoki. Website
is https://ch1.cc/ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15605, Feb 18 at 1517, S9/S6 talk in unknown language,
already off at 1528 check. Per HFCC it`s AWR, 250 kW, 35 degrees from
MDC in ``Lus`` language. But WRTH 2022 page 299 under, where else?
Thailand shows Mizo language to S Asia, daily 1500-1530. EiBi agrees
MZ language, Aoki Lus from Talata. EiBi`s readme.txt accounts for
both: ``MZ Mizo / Lushai: India-Mizoram (0.7m)[lus]`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, Feb 18 at 0742 and still 1515, PN, 25-watt
ND beacon at PoNca City, is back. Latest outage started Feb 11 (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2126 monitoring: confirmed first
broadcasts, UT Friday February 18 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct;
7780, S9/+10 into UTwente. Once again WRMI overrides the last few
words of my closing as heard on 7780.

Also confirmed UT Friday February 18 at 0330 on WRMI 5985, as usual
JBA S9 direct and noisy, but surely better southwards.

Also confirmed Friday February 18 at 1530 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 direct
with no jamming. Next:

** VANUATU. 5040, Feb 18 at 0720, with CUBA off, JBA carrier,
presumably RV, despite 7260 showing as only SW frequency in use on
website if there were cyclone warnings, via Ron Howard:
https://www.vmgd.gov.vu/vmgd/index.php/forecast-division/tropical-cyclone

** CUBA. 11850, Feb 18 at 0052, RHC Spanish is S+30 but as usual, JBM,
suptorted. Parasitic carriers with no modulation detected but
achieving S8 on 11840, S9 on 11860, which by this hour bears no
jamming or Yemening. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11950, Feb 18 at 0053, RHC Mesa Redonda splitaway
undermodulated but sufficient on an S9+30 signal, // 12000 which is 2
x 6000, S9+10. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Feb 18 at 0056, surprise, RHC in English at S9+30, //
5040, the only scheduled frequency at 00-01; 13740 with wrong program
feed instead of Spanish? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15075.00836 varying to 15075.00837, JBA carrier locked

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Feb 16 at 1520, no signal of LRA36 into
two Brazilian SDRs, but JBA this Wednesday into Brasília, and
Montevideo, S1-S2 with 1525 ID, 1527 Antárdida themesong, past 1547
but gone before 1603. Sam Sánchez, Oregon had it as early as 1414 via
Brasília; and Wolfgang Büschel, Germany, 1500-1520 via Montevideo
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6000, Feb 16 at 0700, S9+20 of dead air from RHC;
all other frequencies are off already as I expect this one shortly
shall be too. Something`s always wrong? at RHC. 5040 however bears a
JBA carrier, presumably VANUATU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 7220, Feb 16 at 2305, I am plenty busy simulmonitoring
English from SPAIN and TURKEY [qq.vv.] at once but make a quick check
of RRI: at UTwente, very heavy rapid clicking ranging 7200-7240, OTH
radar? centred right on maybe a trace of RRI. But at Maryland SDR,
much further beyond W European target, RRI is loud and clear with none
of that QRM. Or could be local problem at UTwente? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Feb 16 at 2307, token REE English is not off the
air but VG S9+15/27 into Maryland SDR. After news, feature about a
``ghost village`` uncovered in a draining reservoir; 2310 about Gala
cinema awards in Valencia, not in Castilian. Shortly retune to TURKEY,
q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Feb 16 tune-in from Spain at 2316, closing
a `Feeling Supreme` feature about some remedy, +018 Hz offset and
S9+35 into UTwente but annoying hum. Otherwise sufficient modulation
and no squeal. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. 2318 `Weekly
Commentary` penned by someone in a Washington DC branch, but neither
intro nor outro can I understand their name or credentials, as voiced
by the YL with heavy accent, but it`s about Qatar as a useful non-NATO
ally. 2329, `Turkey`s Cultural Treasures,` something dating back
thousands of years; but at 2330 it`s my time for `NBC Nightly [sic]
News` already before sunset here. Later always enjoyable Turkish music
fill, 2353 the usual OM announcer sign-off of the ``1230-1330 on 15450
to Europe`` broadcast! Which is doubly erroneous, the A-season
scheduling only. Something`s always awry at Ankara. The CCCCCCI has
been growing and uncovered at VOT 2354* after only a fragment of one
IS iteration (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re 305 kHz, my Feb 15 log of beacon OI, S. Sioux City NE,
Rick Barton replies: ``Hey Glenn. My only expertise here is being a
DXer and being the son of two general aviation pilots.

Many of the NDBs used to set up approaches to airports use 5 letter
names, i.e., "BILOY" that sets up for Billard Airport in Topeka,
Kansas. of course, the beacon call is "TO". This is also true of
enroute IFR "intersections", such as the "PAYSO" intersection, NW of
Phoenix, but close to Payson, AZ. Another beacon, that sets up an
approach for Charles City (IA) airport, is designated "CHUKK" (get it?
Charles, Chuck Hi HI).

Anyway, I learned over time that some of the airnav sites are named
for purely local things like nearby golf courses, businesses, rivers
and lakes, or even ghost towns. Someone from South Sioux City, Neb.
might have your answer.

It may be that the airport where the beacon is located, Martin Field,
was named for Tom Martin. Beacons "at the field" are usually named for
the airport itself, and may not use the 5 letter rule. But I took a
look at the aviation chart and saw right off that the beacon is one of
two that set up approaches for Sioux City Gateway Airport's Runway
13/31. (The other beacon is SU-"SALIX"). It may have been convenient
that the nearby town of Salix, IA, has 5 letters! 73 from the Sonoran
Desert - rb`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 335 MCW kHz, Feb 16 at 0654 UT, BV, 25-watt ND
beacon at BatesVille, Arkansas; mixing with dash and YLD, 1000 watts
at Chapleau, Ontario which is normally heard without any BV.

245 MCW kHz, Feb 16 at 0700 UT, FS, 400 watt NDB at Sioux Falls, South
Dakota; tuned to 243 USB. A regular not always logged, but note not a
trace now nor ever on 243 of RTLuxembourg, which WRTH says is 24h with
750,000 watts day, 375,000 night, direxional 227 degrees toward Paris
from Beidweiler site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
