Hauser
** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 23 at 0700, NO signal detected from R.
Kiribati at Kaneohe, Oahu SDR which used to pick it up reliably on N/S
antenna. And of course no trace direct as I used to often have it last
wintrish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 27, 4-1, KFOR, the NBC affiliate in the 50th largest
market, OKC, always has a hard time hitting the local ad cutaway cues
during NBC Eveningly News, by a second or split second. But on Nov 22
during 2330-2400 UT, there were several seconds of black silence, and
rejoining net with a story already in progress; get your act together.
Can`t this be handled accurately by automation? (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: Harold Frodge, MI, reports
about Tue Nov 21: ``9955 WRMI Radio Miami Int’l; 1405-1413+, 11/21;
Hauser’s World of Radio in progress to 1410 cutoff? Ian MacFarland
WRMI ID into odd chant. SIO=3+53 (Frodge-MI)`` Maybe that was the
`Thank You` show? I`ve asked Jeff to prevent this in future.

Jason, of Classic WBCQ Operations, replies about WOR missing from
7490+ and 5130.3, Wed Nov 22 at 2200: ``Hi Glenn, Sorry about that. We
have switched to an upgraded computer on 7490 and it's been a bumpy
ride with the changeover but it should be all fixed now. Jason``

Confirmed UT Thursday November 23 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+15/20 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thursday November 23 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9/+10
into Bonaire SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thursday November 23 at 0230 on WRMI 9395, S9/+25
direct.

Not confirmed alleged new time, Thu Nov 23 at 1500 on WRMI 9955 as
shown on skedgrid since last week. 9955 is not even on the air tho
sked shows it runs until 1600 or 1630. And not on webcast either,
rather music, fill? I`ve asked Jeff to clarify this.

woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490+, Nov 23 at 0248, WBCQ is back on tho missing earlier
at 2200 Nov 22, WOR time. Only S8/S9 into Maryland SDR showing wide
variations from as low as 7490.515 to 7490.813; but a WWV calibration
check at 0304 finds it reading -66 Hz low at 10 MHz, -33 Hz low at 5
MHz, so about -50 Hz low at 7.5 MHz. The wobbliness may not be
noticeable with AM tuning. Back at 0255, WBCQ 5130.3 was off, 6160 on
with Hal Turner as -109 Hz, so corrected should be more like only -70
Hz. And at 0302, a music break sounds same on 6 and 7 MHz, probably
Hal amid his 2-hour broadcast on UT Thursdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Nov 23 at 0803, WRMI with TOMBS at S6/S9 but very
undermodulated compared to 9455 & 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Nov 23 at 1952, WRMI with VOA relay, VG into Maine
SDR like a local, but zero sig into UTwente, target Europe. Various
items, none concerning Ukraine, as Mike Cooper says `Flashpoint
Ukraine` morphed into `Flashpoint Global Crises` earlier this month,
first airings at 2200 UT M-F -- but are there any VOA English SW
frequencies then? So I was wondering if it would still be on WRMI at
1930, evidently almost 24 hours delayed. NOTE: on WOR 2218 I misspoke,
saying I was hearing it until 2200 on 15770 instead of correct -2000.
And during the remainder I did hear, anchor never named it even at
closing, just ``the program``, duh.

What about WRMI webcast? At 1950 it`s in Italian, then music, then
multi-lingual RAE ID reel. RAE Italian via WRMI is supposedly only at
12-13 UT M-F on 15770. Recheck at 2151 while 9955 is still off,
webcast now with VOA `African Music Mix`! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 23 at 0324, WTWW reactivated earlier than
expected, so all fixed already? S9+5/20 into Maryland SDR, very close
to on-frequency when corrected, likewise at 0325 into NH SDR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CANADA. 2749 USB, Nov 22 at 0746, marine weather in English by YL
voice, S7. Also same synth voice on 2598 USB much stronger S9+20.
Scheduled now are 2749 VCO Sydney NS from 0740 and 2598 VCP Placentia
NL from 0737, first broadcasts of the local days. However, EiBi shows
sites are really:
pc-Port Caledonia NS 46N11'14"-59W53'59"
sl-St Lawrence NL 46N55'09"-55W22'45"
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. David Crawford, FL, replies to my report of 9330 spy numbers
missing: ``Last HM01 spook report seen here before its redisappearance
was 26 OCT at 0635 Z by Ary. Bauta lost at least one more working
transmitter (9535) in early October. So, HM01 was competing for RHC
resources and losing perhaps, since HM01 long-period-repetitive
content suggests that it is a contingency-only medium now. Not
counting 4765 and 5025, I'm not hearing more than 3 RHC Bauta at a
time just now: routinely 9710, 11760, and 15140, and pop-ups sometimes
on 6100, 9650, 11670, or 11950 within that total. Max RHC+CRI Quivicán
observed here currently is 4, and still zero Bejucal. The trend does
not bode well for the future of RHC shortwave`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Nov 22 at 0731, JBA S2 in Spanish. Must be RHC way
overtime; their jammers are stronger against nothing, S4/S5 on 11860,
S5 on 11930. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 7380, Nov 22 at 0727, Western classical M vocal solo with
piano accompaniment, so NHK would not be first guess, but that`s
what`s listed, 07-09, 85 degrees from Yamata for S America in
Japanese. Only other possibility is: various USA pirates in English
irr. 24h per EiBi, but I don`t recall any on 7380. Joe Hanlon
suggested that a higher band would be better for that target, but it`s
fine S9+25/30 to here over a mostly dark path. Other NHK at this time
on 11825 beamed back to Asia is a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 22 at 0748, no signal from R. Kiribati,
which I continue to check almost every night after 0700; last season
this would be the earliest/only ``trans``-Pacific MW carrier audible
here. Probably off, but still must overcome local noise level here.
Need further checking via Oahu remote (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** QATAR [non]. 15385, Nov 22 at 1700, no signal from Al Jazeera TV
sound into Kuwait or UTwente SDRs. First time I`ve looked for it;
first reported by Jorge Freitas, Brasil, in the WOR iog:
``15385 17/November 1747 UNID in Arabic. Almost local signal here in
my QTH. I couldn't find information on any list, not even the newer
HFCC. It went off the air at 1759 without ID, while OM was speaking.
73 Jorge Freitas, Feira de Santana, Bahia 12°14´S 38°58´W -
Brasil, Tecsun PL-660, XHDATA, Antenna Delta Loop and LW 20 meters``

Tarek Zeidan, Cairo, replied Nov 19: ``Hello DXers, The first time we
caught Aljazeera TV audio carrier on SW was on 15th of November around
1130 UT on 15675 with a transmission that lasted till 1400. Later on
that day there was another transmission on 9965 around 1800 but it was
weaker than the previous transmission on 15675. The following day 16th
there was only one transmission on 15385 from 1600 to 1800 and that's
the only transmission we get from Aljazeera TV on SW for the last few
days; but in the meantime they've announced that they started
transmitting to Gaza strip on 93.9 MHz on FM Band. No mention
whatsoever about their SW transmission though I sent them 2 emails to
get the schedule and time of transmissions but in vain. Here's my
recording of the 1600 UT transmission on 18th of November:
https://youtu.be/BheMjVIwYaU?si=Jx8XHA34qgXy9blr
Best 73, Tarek Zeidan, Cairo, Egypt`` Site: believed to be Woofferton UK

And Ron Howard found this from Ali:
``"Al Jazeera Radio from Qatar on shortwave 15385 kHz." (Nov 16) -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9DCDOd3Yws
Ron, San Francisco``

So is it still on the SW air, anywhere? 15385 would be a good choice,
nothing else scheduled on it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Nov 22 at 2307, token English from SNR, VG into
Maryland SDR, extended discourse by some professor about the Palestine
situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 22 at 2318, VOT English not off the air,
S9+25/35 into UTwente, `Gripping Piles` on negative environmental
impact of fashion industry, above undercurrent of CCCCCCI. 2322
multi-lingual ID filler reel, and badax reading `Weekly Commentary`
about China`s economy dependent on US investment which is declining;
by someone in Washingtoon DC. 2339 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo. 2340
`Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring` about benefits of ozone therapy.
2347 song. 2350 another song. They never announce titles or artists,
which is just as well since they would be incomprehensible, just like
most of the writers contributing. 2353 s/off with totally wrong
English schedule: B23 frequencies but local times cited as if they
were UTC; announcess does not engage brain. 6 notes of IS chopped off
at 2355* before can switch to German, uncovering East Turkistan, std
denunciation; and something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday November 21 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+20 direct; starts right
after music fill, no ID break. {not 0030 as in original report}

Also confirmed UT Wednesday November 22 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+15/30
direct.

Wednesday November 22 at 2155 via remote in Maryland I notice that
WBCQ is OFF 7490 again, but its programming has again been shifted to
5130.30, J. P. Ferraro`s show from WHVW in another Trumpbump. So I
hasten to notify WOR and other lists that WOR 2217 should also be on
5130+ this week instead --- NOT: dead air after J.P. finishes, despite
a quick reminder to the boardops, for at least the rest of the
semihour tho by 2250 recheck some music is playing. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1500 UT Thursday WRMI 9955 to SSE [new; to be confirmed][+webcast;
jammed?]

** CUBA. 5025, Nov 21 at 0748, S9+20 of dead air from R. Rebelde,
which is often on the air and modulating earlier in evenings.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 9330, Nov 21 circa 0745, NO sign of spy numbers this
date nor on other random dates lately during this hour; rather WLCR
via WBCQ in the clear after years of collisions on alternate nights.
Matches this from Rick Barton on the WOR iog: ``9330 UNITED STATES
(Maine) WBCQ 0700. Long lecture by man in Portuguese. Strong - but
choppy - signal. Most notably, no co-channel Cuban ##s station for
weeks now (also true with all the other numbers skeds). -- Fair to
Good Nov. 19 Barton-AZ`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 13820, Nov 21 at 2140 check, no Martí here nor on
A-channel 13605; nor any jamming against nothing on either penetrates
local noise level. O, to be expected as 13820 is now sked only until
2100*; while 11860 & 11930 are still on VG. Nor any 35790 audible yet
on 3 x 11930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9442.489, Nov 21 at 2135, R. Cairo not off the air but way
off-frequency, S9+20 direct with music only during brief check while
modulation sounds tolerable. FYI, this includes a +7 Hz correxion
factor to the R75 zerobeat readout compared to WWV 10000. Something`s
amiss at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 21 at 2300, VOT audible direct, S9+20 would
be sufficient if not for the local noise bursts to S9+40. Then
S9+20/30 into UTwente where measured, 2353 in canned signoff with
all-wrong local times labeled UTC, 2354 IS. Something`s always awry at
Ankara. 2356 restart IS with German ID, chopoff by 2356.6*. Strangely,
uncovers only a trace of algo rather than the usual fCCCCCCI from East
Turkistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday November 21 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9/+20 direct; starts right
after music fill, no ID break.

Also confirmed UT Tuesday November 21 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S5 into
Brownsville SDR; S7/S8 into Bonaire.

Also confirmed Tuesday November 21 at 1400 on WRMI 9955, S9 direct.

** EGYPT [non]. 9440 nor 9442, Nov 20 at 2120, NO signal from R. Cairo
into UTwente, but heavy splash from nothing closer than 9455 Chinese,
i.e. CNR1 jammer against RFA via Kuwait; never mind WRMI. Something`s
amiss at Abis, egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6958 USB, Nov 20 at 2258, rock music S9+10/20, 2259
into a music loop, IS? vs intermittent line noise peaking S9+20. 2302
adds chirping to the mxmix; 2309 trance? music. Never heard any talk
ID in random chex back and forth with 6954 USB neighbor. Also UnID for
11 other monitors:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,121504.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6954 USB, Nov 20 at 2304, another pirate with music
besides the 6958 unID, slightly weaker; 2306 SSTV beepery; 2311 music,
2316 more SSTV. Never heard any voice ID. Many reports here as Thunder
Chicken Radio, with SSTV images:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,121501.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Nov 20 at 2302, token English from SNR, VG direct,
news mainly about new governments in Spain and Argentina; 2308
interview about new amnesty deal since Catalonia separatists helped
Sánchez (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960.001, Sun Nov 19 at 2346, no signal from VOT into
UTwente, just Chinese. Also Mon Nov 20 at 2308, no signals direct; and
at 2327, nothing into UTwente but Chinese from East Turkistan, std
denunciation. VOT stuck on 9610, the 2130-2230 channel? algo S7 at
9610.001, probably CNR8 from Beijing site. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler twice (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday November 19 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9 into
UTwente SDR across Europe, no QRM. Also at same time on WRN Europe
stream and WRMI webcast only.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 20 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/S7 into

** U S A. 7490.037, Sun Nov 19 at 2346, WBCQ with `Uncle Bill`s
Melting Pot` as on third Sundays, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR. Stronger
signal now but remains offset+plus instead of -minus implying it`s
still the backup transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17790, Nov 20 at 1628, NO signal direct from WRMI-7, Radio
Africa Network of PAB for S America supposed to start at 1500; nor at
