** CANADA [and non]. 351 MCW kHz, Jan 23 at 0747 UT, dash and YKQ,
500-watt ND beacon at Fort Rupert/Waskaganish, QC, at 51+/78- degrees
N/W. Long time since last logged, March 19, 2023. RG on 350 at WRWA
OKC remains gone so no problem there; but a little bit of LIttle Rock
from 353 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15760.00, Jan 23 at 1614, distorted Chinese at S8/9+5. Also
// 13590 very distorted! S7/S9 with no stable carrier to detect; and
// 13630 with OK modulation. At 1621, 11565 & 11670 non-distorted CNR1
jammers. 11775 at 1622, extremely distorted Chinese worst of all and
splattering +/- 15. Aoki shows CNR1 jammer against SOH on 15760 but
only until 1500; 13590 same until 1700; 11775 until 1730; 11670
against VOA, 11565 vs RFA. Jammer sites not known or guessed, but the
extremely distorted ones likely from one site different from others.
Deliberate? Makes jamming more ``effective``, but a stain upon ChiCom
engineering quality for those not knowing such frequencies are really
only to jam SOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Jan 23 at 2115-2120, NO signal from R. Cairo in
English sesquihour unto UTwente. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 9490+, Jan 23 at 0346, S9/+10 of dead air with hum from
TDF, again failing to turn it off at 0300 when RMI República finish.
Something`s incompetent at ISSoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.9, Jan 23 at 1621, S3/S4 JBA maybe music from
pirate Hikari FM. I wonder if he has any listeners or reports from
Japan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, from the land of Armenian genocide denial, Jan
23 at 2300, no signal direct from VOT English to US, except some
random noise; JBA carrier on possible overrun 9610. Checking UTwente
at 2333, 5960 is nothing but Chinese from East Turkistan, std
denunciation; while 9610.002 S6-S7 JBA in language not English. TWR
New Delhi gets 9610 much better: must be the only thing listed now,
CNR8 in Mongolian from Beijing site. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2226 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday January 23 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday January 23 at 1426 the 1400 on WRMI 9955, S8/S9
direct. Next:

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

** U S A. 5800, Jan 23 at 0348, WRMI in English discussion of US
involvement in Latin America, `Freedom Synergy Radio`, pro-Taiwan,
which is enough for Cuba to jam it, even tho not in Spanish, but WRMI
is S9+10/20 atop the noise.

5800, Jan 23 at 0435, ham radio discussion vs jamming, must be the
expelled from WTWW, and renamed `Legends`. Bits of that scattered
evenings around the WRMI skedgrid, but supposedly not this hour on
5800, rather 5050 & 9455 only. In fact, 5800 not shown on any System
after 0400! Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12105, Jan 23 at 1624, S5/S8 open carrier: something
about to sign on? No, still DA at 1631. Nothing in EiBi, but Aoki
shows at 14-17 RFE/RL in Taj via Lampertheim, Germany. Tajik?? WRTH
2024 does not show that language anywhen from RFE/RL which is almost
gone from SW; nor RFA nor various other USAGM substations. Aoki info
may be outdated, like many more obvious entries. RFE/RL did emit Tajik
in WRTH 2005 handily consulted. So what is this? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 21800, Jan 22 at 2313, S9 but weakish Chinese,
must be CNR1 jammer against Sound of Hope on its very highest
frequency as wb often outpoints. Only other 13mb signal is weaker
21530.065 JBA carrier, in this case may really be SOH, Miaoli, Taiwan,
lacking a jammer since it`s so far off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA [non]. See FRANCE 9490

** FRANCE. 9490+, Jan 22 at 0419, S9 of dead air, little if any
jamming. Must be TDF not yet turned off after RMI R. República relay,
always askew on high side but not remeasured now. HFCC registered as
0100-0200 & 0200-0300 both daily, also EiBi as 01-03 daily. Aoki shows
the second hour extension applies only on days 1267 = UT
Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon. I think this correct, or used to be but not rechecked
lately.

WRMI skedgrid lines 441 & 442 show both on days 7123456, i.e. every;
yet start/end dates differ: At 01-02: 291023 to 051123, but 02-03:
061123 to 300324. So that implies it`s always only one hour, but
shifted one UT hour later with the end of DST in USA and the Running
Dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Cuba.

So, Jan 23 from 0153 monitoring 9490 into Maryland and Florida SDRs:
nothing yet, but *0156 jamming starts! *0159 R.R. carrier on with the
real Cuban NA and s/on, `Recuentro Informativo` totally overriding
jamming. The two SDRs can`t agree how far off-frequency, Florida
+78-95 Hz, or Maryland +51-67 Hz. But that indicates the transmitter
is axually fluxuating some 16/17 Hz up and down.

Would you believe than own website https://www.radiorepublica.us/ has
nothing about WRMI, 9490, nor any radio, just podcasts with up-to-date
entries?! Likewise, https://www.directorio.org/radio-republica/

Careful, if you search without democratico you`ll wind up in
non-democratic Cuba itself, like https://www.directoriocubano.info/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1640 kHz, Jan 22 at 2315 UT, KZLS Enid is still
off the air, unknown why. Observing DX logs from Europe and NZ, I
daresay that our KZLS is the least-heard USA on 1640 -- because unlike
most of them ND, KZLS is NNW/SSE day and night, i.e. shooting for the
much huger OKC market, and from a site east of Hennessey, much closer
to OKC than other ``Enid`` MW stations. But that should advantage it
for DX to Latin America, unLatin Alyaska.

Just before 0200 UT Jan 23, I monitor KCRC 1390 for legal ID break in
Fox Sports Radio: sure enough, imagines both stations, KZLS first,
KCRC second! What do they know?

BTW, WTNI 1640 Biloxi MS used to give KZLS or whatever it used to be
called, trouble even here in Enid, suspected of 10 kW ND day power at
night, but have not heard it in a long time and find no other reports
of it since September. What`s with that? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 17755, Mon Jan 22 at 1629, no signal direct from
REE; beamed south for Africa, always the worst signal here, but should
be detectable. Presumably off, something not right at Noblejas.

Other TA signals are normal on 17850, 17880. REE`s other frequency,
17715 for SAm, is not starting until *1900 weekdays, but 17755 is
supposed to start at *1600 weekdays. So REE is now audible only on
12030 for ME, S7/S9 off the back. 9690 for NAm will not be on either
until *1900 weekdays.

Oh2! EiBi shows 17775, NOT 17755! At outset of B23 season there was
confusion about that, maybe REE itself typoed. By 1725 I do detect VP
17755 JBA direct, NOT 17775. Furthermore, there is a het about
17755.6, maybe local birdie? Checking TWR RSA remote at 1730
timesignal, 17755 is VG but with a squeal, which implies the het be
self-imposed.

Aoki does show correct 17755 for REE, not 17775, but would you believe
it still has three entries there for defunct KVOH? Long before it
crashed completely, KVOH quit using 17775 at all, years ago.

HFCC lists correct 17755 for SPAIN, not 17775: but on 17775 it does
have an imaginary entry for WRMI! at 11-24 on NW 315 degree beam; in
addition to true 17790 at 15-21 on SSE 160 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Jan 22 at 2309, token English from SNR, feature
interview about a ``residencia para señoritas`` possiblizing for the
first time higher education for YLs in Spain, from Oct 1915 until the
Spanish CW intervened in July 1936. VG here direct, other frequencies
unchecked, nigh irrelevant (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003, Jan 22 at 2308, VOT not off the air,
fair direct. Into UTwente at 2339, VG in ``with-you-every-hour``
promo, music; 2344 multi-lingual ID filler reel, music; 2350 s/off as
if this were the 1330 on 13635, and ID until off at 2355:30*, just in
time to avoid German, uncovering fellow genocidal Chicom-controlled
XJRTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2226 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
January 21 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9 but noisy,
some S7 fades of audibility into UTwente; VG steady S9+15 into nearby
Noale SDR and no QRM at either.

Also confirmed Sunday January 21 at 2232 on Shortwave Radio, Germany,
3975.002, S9/S7 into UTwente; preceded by a DX program in German from
ADDX.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 22 at 0035 the 0030 on WRMI 7780,
S6/S7 into opposite direxion UTwente where I don`t usually check 7780,
but detectable with some CW QRM on about 7778.9

Also confirmed UT Monday January 22 at 0401, on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.95, S9/+20 direct.

Not confirmed Monday January 22 at 2030 on SW Radio, Germany, no
signal on 3975 into UTwente. Later check at 2133 there detects an S7
signal on 3974.997 but nothing audible. No signal to a Finnish SDR but
I checked only one of countless. Next:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to SW
1400 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. WRMI: See CUBA [non]

** U S A. Re 730, ``Glenn Wrote in Part: “*only* otherone along this
line is KQPN West Memphis AR, U4 1000/1000, 24h talk format, `OvC` per
NRC AM Log -- yes, that means Overcomer Ministry = Brother
Hystairical! in which case it should be shown as REL. But no TOMBS
heard now.”

The AM Radio Log doesn’t list a religious format unless a station has
more than one program or a substantial amount of a given format during
their broadcast day. A good example in KXEL-1540 which also carries
the Overcomer Ministry but it`s a paid segment overnight. Many
stations shown with OvC and quite a few with FoF = Focus on the Family
have a different primary format. 73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM
Radio Log, Aurora, CO`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. Re my 1218.1 carrier het: Terry Krueger
replied at 0127 UT Jan 20: ``I am no value in that I can only tell you
what *isn’t* offset after sunset here in extreme NW Floriduh tonight.
The below are all essentially on 1220, not offset.

WAYE Birmingham AL is in Spanish with lots of local spots. Pseudo
Mexi-tunes.

Someone fake C&W with constant canned drops by female as “My Country
12-20 AM.” Pointing slightly more west. Curious who this is. I’m sure
I missed NRC/IRCA updates on this.

Someone else threshold in Spanish, maybe the big XEco station. Kinda
pointing thataway. Uselessly yours, TLK``

And then David Crawford, FL: ``No hint here at 0130 Z. But cubana
Radio Caribe 1219.996 is playing some nice danzón music. К победе!``

I reply ``Tnx, youse guys for the rapid responses. Well, outruling is
beginning of process. In NRC AM Log, the only 1220 as ``My Country``
but not including the frequency as printed, is WSLM, Salem IN U4
5000/82. No FM xltr shown so would have to mention 1220 if any.
Glenn``

Terry Replies at 0331: ``Interesting. At 0041, there was a very clear
“…right here in Salem…” The fake C&W could have been bumper music. So,
probably WSLM per your digs. Thanx. Still, nothing else low 1220 het
here in defacto lower Abalama`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Jan 22 at 0424:
1566, 1125-2?, 891, 774, 711, 693. This time from top down, 1566 no
doubt BENIN. Oh2, soon I`m getting intermittent connexions from both
antennas into the R75(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 92.1, Jan 22 at 2115 UT, snippet of YL in Spanish, in
caradio bandscan since it`s foggy and area reception might be
enhanced. But otherwise if anything, it`s subnormal. Except she has to
be DX, maybe MS or Es, as there are no OK or KS in SS on 92.1. TX has
six, only two of those not LP or xltrs, Alice and Carrizo Springs.

Is there Es? By 2342 UT check of 6 m map, there is! MUF 99 MHz,
multi-angled, but the nexus is in SW OK, two close to be helpful here.
Earlier could have been Mex with plenty of Spanish. I have not had
*any* definite Es on FM this winter. It has not been unusual for the
map to show MUF just below or slightly above 88 MHz.

By 0015 UT Jan 23, DXMAP is showing Zerr in NV contracting FM DX from
KS so there must be another patch half out thataway, so around 0030 I
brave the freezish rain and Spanish needles for another caradio DX
check: no, nothing unusual in 88-98 MHz surveyed a couple times (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. Just in from Manuel Méndez at 1708 UT Jan 21: ``Hola
Glenn, pregunté hoy a Juan Benavente sobre la posible desmantelación
de LRA 36, y me dice, y además me pide que lo haga saber en su nombre,
o sea, que se nombre a él expresamente, lo siguiente:

1º Juan Benavente sigue vinculado a LRA 36 a través del Comando
Antártico Argentino.

2º Los rumores sobre la privatización de la Radio Nacional Argentina
son rotundamente falsos e intereados, realizados por la oposición
política argentina, pero, repite, son rotundamente falsos.

3º LRA 36 no solo no va a desaparecer, no va a ser desmantelada, sino
que, todo lo contrario, va a ser potenciada, recibiendo nuevo
material, entre el que se encuentra el nuevo transmisor de 10 kW. Se
están organizando para salir al aire con la nueva temporada.

Por favor, tradúcelo y hazlo saber en nombre de Juan Benavente, me lo
pide él expresamente. Un cordial saludo.``

Google translation improved by gh:

Hello Glenn, I asked Juan Benavente today about the possible
dismantling of LRA 36, and he tells me, and also asks me to do so in
his name, that is, to expressly name him, the following:

1st, Juan Benavente remains linked to LRA 36 through the Argentine
Antarctic Command.

2º, The rumors about the privatization of the Argentine National Radio
are flatly false and self-serving, made by the Argentine political
opposition, but, repeat, they are flatly false.

3º, LRA 36 not only is not going to disappear, it is not going to be
dismantled, but, on the contrary, it is going to be enhanced,
receiving new material, among which is the new 10 kW transmitter. They
are organizing to go on air with the new season.

Please translate it and let it be known in the name of Juan Benavente,
he expressly asks me to do so. A cordial greeting (via Glenn Hauser,
WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5800, Jan 21 at 0808, wall-of-noise jamming not
against nothing since there is also an open carrier, totalling S9+20,
no doubt WRMI-10 which is supposed to stop at 0400* after 0300
`Freedom Synergy Radio`, which Needs To Be Jammed since it`s
pro-Taiwan, hence anti-Commie, ergo anti-Cuba. WRMI skedgrid with yet
another self-contradixion: only the transmitter/frequency atop shows
FSR, as System B that hour on 5800; while 9955 switches to System H
for Czecho/Slovakia relays. The program sked below does not show FSR
anywhere, Cz/Sl on 9955 as System B. But Prague also at 03-04 on 9955
as System H, blank at 04-05; and 5800 unaccounted for on any System
after 0300! So I`m not sure if FSR be on the air at all now. BTW, 5800
supposedly on all day long 14-21 Sabbathdays only with TOMBS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 1640 kHz, Jan 21 circa 0200 UT, I notice that local
KZLS Enid is OFF! No loss at all since it`s 100% // 1390 KCRC Enid,
and 100% sports, mostly stupid ballgames, I assume. So what else may I
hear on 1640? At 0404 I get around to checking: dominant looping
NNE/SSW but some fades/out/in is a monolog about diversity at United
AL, supposedly supported by FAA. Do we want anyone piloting with *any*
disabilities? No commercial breaks for at least 15 minutes; by 0420
ridiculing ``diversity``. Then I scan the entire MW band on another
radio for anything // - finding only one, but right away on 1690,
looping NW/SE. That clinches both of them among the few stations on
both frequencies per NRC AM Log:

1640, WSJP* Sussex WI; and 1690 KDMT* Arvada CO, both *non-commercial
with Relevant Radio religious network. Furthermore, I listen to the
Relevant Radio livestream around 0440 and hear the same topic, same
program, which is `The Patrick Madrid Show (repeat)` at 0200-0500 UT
Sundays. Hardly an improvement over stupid sports talk. Recheck at
1628 UT Jan 21, KZLS still off. Anything else to be heard at low noon,
which is always 1832 UT here? Circa 1815 not even a JBA carrier on any
of my receivers, antennas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, UT Sat Jan 20 monitoring of KUCO anomalous
programming again. From 0500 `Music from the Hearts of Space`, but
0600 followed by the other new `ambient` music show `Beyond the
Barrier`, with a second hour from 0700. Wasn`t awake to check further
into night but presumably no PVDG classical DJ hookup as on other
overnights, but happened to awaken at 1100 UT to hear `Beyond the
Barrier` starting again, maybe its second hour again like 0700.
Skedgrid still claims that is at 12-13 UT Sats = 6-7 AM CT, with 06-12
UT unaccounted for! And BtB still not added to the alfabetical list of
programs (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. Since I report on VOT so much, this from Alan Holder Jan 21
is pertinent:

``[WOR] TURKIYE - VOT English service Letterbox programme returns
January 21 -- The last time I heard "Letterbox" on Voice of Turkiye
was in August 2020 if I remember correctly. After many requests by
myself (and others no doubt), I was pleased to hear the programme
return to the air today, acknowledging letters from some listeners in
South Asia and from Ireland. The presenter, as previously, is Halil
Ibrahim Sarikaya.

There were a few changes to the weekly English language programme line
up from January 15, with "That's Why" and "The Energy Agenda" being
new. They are also repeating the series "Turkish Folk Tales" heard a
while ago and they now have a weekly Sports round-up.

Glenn's "badax" announcer has also given out her name, which is Efsun
Duri Elgeler (I think I have the surname spelt correctly). Alan
Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2226 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday January 21 at 0100 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR vs
Cuban pulse jamming. Bonaire uptied firstly but at 0115, S7/9+10 with
heavier jamming yet still 100% readable if you upput with it.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 21 at 0418, about 4 minutes into so

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Jan 20 from 1721
checking the best Argentine remote, NO signal from LRA36. Still zilch
circa 1800, 1830, 1840, 1948, 2004, 2126, 2158, 2337. Like last week,
it`s gone, temporarily or permanently? Wacky new Arg. Pres.
``Motosierra`` Milei is dedicated to ``privatizing`` Radio Nacional,
with many personnel already fired. See:
https://www.radionacional.com.ar/hay-41-empresas-publicas-sujetas-a-privatizacion/

As Bill Tilford pointed out to me, Esperanza has been removed from the
drop-down list of streaming Radio Nacional Emisoras, not boding well,
at https://www.radionacional.com.ar/

The external service RAE would seem to be equally threatened, as it is
part of Radio Nacional, but its webpage is still up,
https://www.radionacional.com.ar/rae/
including an undated 27-minute interview with a RAE Italian guy who
visited Esperanza:
https://www.radionacional.com.ar/rae-en-la-antartida/

On Jan 19, I asked Manuel Méndez, Spain: ``We are concerned that LRA36
may have been deleted. Can you find out anything from your contacts?
Glenn`` - His reply with my translation interspersed:

``Hola, Glenn, LRA 36 en la pasada campaña, la de 2023, tuvo un gran
impulso gracias a Juan Benavente, un gran conocer de la radio,
radioaficionado y al que le gusta mucho el trabajo que hizo.

Hello, Glenn, LRA 36 in the latest campaign, of 2023, got a great
boost thanks to Juan Benavente, who really knows radio, is a ham, and
really enjoyed the work he did.

Yo escribí a Radio Nacional para decirles lo conveniente que sería que
Juan continuase a cargo de la emisora durante este nuevo año, o por lo
menos que asesorase al nuevo personal que cada año se renueva, con el
fin de seguir unas pautas similares a las del año 2023, además sé que
Juan Benavente continuaría muy satisfecho haciendo ese trabajo.

I wrote to Radio Nacional to tell them how convenient it would be for
Juan to continue in charge of the station during this new year, or at
least advise the new personnel who turn over every year, with the
objective of following guidelines similar to those of 2023; in
addition, I know that Juan Benavente would continue to be very
satisfied doing that job.

Personal de la Base y de Radio Nacional agradecieron mi email y por lo
que sé, hicieron todo lo posible para que Juan continuase, pero al
final nada de esto fue tenido en cuenta y Juan Benavente ya regresó a
la Argentina, así que al final, por lo que yo sé, LRA 36 volverá a los
años anteriores, es decir, seguramente tendremos que esperar semanas
para que el nuevo personal se forme, tenga los conocimientos
necesarios para operar la radio y puedan salir al aire.

Personnel at the base and of Radio Nacional thanked me for my email
and as far as I know did everything possible for Juan to continue, but
ultimately, nothing of this was taken into account, and Juan Benavente
has already returned to Argentina; so that means that as far as I
know, LRA 36 will return to previous years, that is, we shall surely
have to wait weeks for the new personnel to get organized, trained how
to operate the station, and then be able to go on the air.

Pero no sé nada de que LRA 36 haya cesado en sus transmisiones, no sé
de donde pudo saber esa información. Lo que a mi me han comunicado es
que volvereán con la campaña de verano cuando sea posible, pero no,
desde luego, tal como ha sido en el año 2023. Recibe un cordial
saludo. Habrá que estar atentos sobre todo los sábados. Manuel

But I don`t know at all whether LRA 36 has ceased transmissions, nor
do I know where to find out that information. From what they told me,
they will return with the summer session when possible, but not at
all, of course, like it was in 2023. Cordial greetings. We must be
alert especially on Saturdays. Manuel`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 5910, Jan 20 at 0437 CRI via CUBA, S9+40 but
undermodulated song; cannot hear any COLOMBIA underneath, off? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 20 at 0433, R. Progreso, YL speaking softly over
somewhat distorted music, S9+30/40. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Jan 20 at 0438 RHC English, S9+30/40 undermodulated
flanked by awful wide noisy spurblobs approx. 5992-5996 & 6004-6008.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 3975, Jan 20 at 1601, SW Radio, VG into UTwente with
Weekend Music Radio, WMR, starting with bagpipes, Scotland the Brave,
morphing into othermusic. Following hour is that show with pop music
from DJ in Scotland. We had just QSYed from 6160 after WORLD OF RADIO,
see USA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6919 USB, Jan 20 at 0416, pirate with hard rock,
S9/+10, ``Don`t Call Me White`` [?]; 0444 rap with lots of swearing.
unID logs here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,124343.0.html
but finally as Unknown Name Radio Network at s/off 0512* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9510, Jan 20 at 0449, RRI English outstanding S9+30/40
with excerpt of rock opera `Lucifer`, in English (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9700, Jan 20 at 0415, TRT Turkish music, VG S9+30/40.
Better than:

6125, Jan 20 at 0441, VOT English service only S9+20/30, Turkish music
distorted, ``always-by-your-side`` promo and `That`s Why` segment
again.

5960.002, Jan 20 at 2306, VOT English not off the air, VG S9+40/45
into UTwente.

After news, at 2310, `The Energy Agenda` about efficiency. More music
than usual followed. 2337 recheck, `Turkey`s Geomarked [sic] Products`
repeat about the 5-year-bread. 2351, multi-lingual ID filler reel.
2354 s/off as if this were the 1330 on 13635 only. Seems to be the
only version used lately, correct if woefully incomplete, and into IS
in less than a minute before 2355 be reached. 2356 pause and restart
IS with German IDs interspersed. Off about 15 seconds before 2400
avoiding any further German, uncovering you-know-what:

In fairness, if I am going to denounce imperialist ChiCom genocide
against Uyghurs and other Moslems, concerning the East Turkistanish
QRM on 5960, I should also denounce the Turkish genocide of Armenians
a century ago, still denied by Turkey; as in:
https://www.pbs.org/pov/films/aurorasunrise/
which I just watched today via OETA; not that this genocide were news
to me (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 257 MCW kHz, Jan 20 at 0757 UT, JYR, 25-watt ND beacon at
York, Nebraska, manages to barely overcome the local line noise level.
Last logged almost a biyear ago, Feb 4, 2022 at 0717. This and the
next are not too far beyond Kansas:

293 MCW kHz, Jan 20 at 0758 UT, FBY, 25-watt NDB at Fairbury NE (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 6080 & 9775, Sat Jan 20 at 0451 jazz from VOA but no
Willis Conover, // but not synchronized as 6080 is SAO TOME and 9775
is BOTSWANA; both S9+20 but 6080 sounds louder (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2226 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday January 20 at 0139 the 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+15/25 into
Missouri SDR.

Confirmed Saturday January 20 at 1551 the new 1530 on Shortwave Radio,
Germany, just as I am talking about SWR adding WOR, S9+10/15 into
UTwente and only 1 or 2 Hz from 6160.000, also VG modulation, sounds
like more than 1 kW. Page 549 of WRTH 2024 shows address as c/o WWDX
Club, PO Box 1214, D-61282 Bad Homburg, but site is Winsen an der
Aller, 2 x 1 kW. E-mail: studio@shortwaveradio.de That`s in Lower
Saxony, just NE of Hanover; in north-central Germany between Amsterdam
and Berlin. Who are the L.P.?

WOR was on time, ending at 1559, jingle ID as ``Shortwave Radio`` not
appending ``Gold`` as sometimes reported, ``due to Chinese invasion,
retune now to 3975; 6160 resumes tomorrow at 0900``. 6160 already had
splash from 6165 CRI, also S9+10/15. Per EiBi, CRI on 6165 at
1500-1700 is from Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, at 1600 going from Pashto to
Turkish; CNR6 from Beijing to Taiwan also on 6165 at 2155-1605. See
GERMANY for more on 3975.

WOR 2226 also confirmed Sat Jan 20 from 1832 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975, S9+5/10 into UTwente; after ADDX contact info in German.

Also confirmed Saturday January 20 at 2046 UT on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
S9+23 groundwave into nearby SDR, about 4 minutes into, so started
about 2042, the 2030v; also on WRMI webcast only, and WRN N American
webcast, both no doubt from 2030. Next:

** VANUATU. 7260, Jan 20 at 0754, S6/S8 pop song, must be R. Vanuatu.
What is the full frequency sked of this now? It keeps changing.

Current EiBi shows only 1845-1959 on 3945, 1959-2259 & 2300-1105 on
7260. The break at 2259-2300 evidently formerly involved a QSY.

On the contrary, current Aoki shows: 1900-2000 3945, 2000-2400 5040,
2100-0100 5055, 0000-0559 7260, 0600-1000 3945 -- obviously
self-contradictory and outdated, like still showing defunct stations
such as WWRB on 5050.

In HFCC dated 17 Jan, very first entry is PVL 10 kW, VUT via RNZ FMO:
2485 10-19; 3945 07-10 & 19-24; 5040 20-23; 7260 01-07; 9960 01-07 --
some overlap to cover contingency adjustments but still not accounting
for 7260 after 07 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
