Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, August 3 at 1448-1548, LRA36 NO SHOW,
monitored this Wednesday for a full hour via Buenos Aires area remote.
Wonder if will make up Friday circa 1800 as happened recently?
Otherwise try Sat circa 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9818.793, August 3 at 0627, JBA carrier presumed R. Nove de
Julho on signature off-frequency, also reported at a different time by
Manuel Méndez, Spain on 9818.8. Checked here for only other ZY on 31m
overnight while RVM missing from 9665v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Aug 3 at 0636, this RHC English is on tonight, unlike
last night this late, and better than 6060, while 6100 and 6000 are
off; 5040 still on in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, August 3 at 2126, S9+35/50 of humwhine with traces
of English? modulation spikes into UTwente. Something`s always
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, August 3 at 0710 UT, PN, 25 watt ND beacon
at PoNca City is back on air; had been missing since July 31 (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wednesday August 3 at 2200 UT, REE still no English,
but more of `Canciones Ténebres` about Cuba. Following links below for
what`s supposedly on now, `El Guateque`, that program last aired on
14/02/2020! Alan Roe has found a webpage of program predixions for the
next sextaday showing English will resume on UT Monday 8 August:
https://www.rtve.es/play/guia-rne/radioexterior/6-dias/

But this is very confusing: it does show English for Martes 09 at
00:00 = which is local time, i.e. UT Monday 2200; but it does not
correctly show what is axually airing today Wednesday 2200 UT = Jueves
04 at 00:00: For ``hoy`` at 00:00 at first claims Emisión Sefardí,
which is really at 2200 UT Tuesdays; yet ``mañana`` at 00:00, `Amigos
de la Onda Corta`, the media (hardly DX) program in Spanish, but that
must refer to local Friday, since the following tab is labeled sábado
06! AdlOC should really appear at 2200 UT Thursdays. Something`s
messed up in Madrid. It also shows when on the local day English is at
00:00, it`s also at 04:00 = 0200 UT. Unfortunately, that`s exactly
when the SW transmitters close down (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, August 3 at 0500-0505, UR1 via WRMI, VG into
Maryland SDR, `Ukraine: Security Issue` for Aug 2 = Day 160 of
Tsar-war, this time by the OM announcer with heaviest accent, yet who
also speaks trippingly too rapidly; wish they would let the YL who
speaks English best do them all; including: Poland and Baltic states
will be next unless Russia stopped by Ukraine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2149 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St.

``Dear Radio WRMI WORLD of radio: I am a listener from China. Today I
received your English language program signal at 10:30-10:45 UTC. The
frequency is 5850 KHz, the signal is very strong, the listening effect
is not very clear. [??]

Here I want to apply for a paper QSL card(not E-QSL) from the Radio
WRMI WORLD of radio, if there are souvenirs with Radio WRMI WORLD of
radio's logo, it would be even better.

My listening report is as follows:

Receiving language : English
Receiving equipment: Tecsun DR-910 radio with External antenna
Receiving location: Jiangyin City, Jiangsu Province, China
Reception: good, I can hear the sound clearly, but there is also a
little noise, SINPO: 43334

I wish Radio WRMI WORLD of radio's all staff good health, all the

also hope that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict will end as soon as

``

With a large 15-minute wav file. I do not QSL and never offer to do
so; I forwarded to WRMI which has a WOR-design QSL card. Glad
reception is so good in China. I do not hear any QRM despite their I
of 3 instead of 5. Next:

Also confirmed Wednesday August 3 at 2123 the 2100.35 on WBCQ 7490-,
JBA direct, and S6/S9 but noisy into Maryland SDR on 7489.929. Next:

** U S A. 9330, Wed August 3 at 0624, NO signal from WLCR/WBCQ. That
should clear the way for Cuban spy numbers at 0700 on M/W/F/Su (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Aug 3 at 0631, RV on 3 x 3945 is S4/S6, music with
a beat into drumming signaling government announcements; also JBA on
7890 = 2 x 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, August 2 at 0630, this RHC English is loud & clear for
a change, S9+20/30 with VG modulation, so it can be done! Talking
about COVID; better than // 6100, only S9+10/20 with sufficient
modulation. Something`s not wrong at RHC, unless it be absence of 6165
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, August 2 at 1505, RHC is S9+10 in suptorted Spanish.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, August 2 at 2211, R. Cairo nothing but big
humwhine in English, S7/9+10 into Maryland SDR. Something`s always
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. ROBERTO SCAGLIONE: very sad news from Andrea Lawendel
that Roberto died suddenly of a heart attack on August 1. Proprietor
of the BCLNEWS.IT group and website, and a cooperator with WOR:

``According to messages circulating this morning on SWL related
Italian social networks feeds and confirmed by an obituary just
published by Palermo online news site
https://palermolive.it/morto-roberto-scaglione-teleone/
Roberto Scaglione has passed away yesterday in his hometown, due to a
sudden heart event. Originally from the Southern Sicilian port of
Sciacca, close to Agrigento, for many years Roberto has been founder
and editor of the Italian DX news organisation "Bclnews" and host to
the Italian DX programme "Obiettivo DX", on Sunday from AWR Europe's
SW frequencies. 73 Andy Lawendel Radiopassioni.it``

No further info at the Palermo site but it does have a portrait.
Roberto also produced a `Studio DX` program in Italian on WRMI:

``Studio DX è l'unica trasmissione in lingua italiana dedicata al
mondo dei BCL, SWL, radioamatori e mondo delle comunicazioni in genere
diffusa in onde corte, onde medie, satellite, internet e attraverso
una rete di emittenti in modulazione di frequenza. Ideata nel 1978 da
Stefano Mannelli IZ3ENH, è realizzata e condotta in studio da Roberto
Scaglione di bclnews.it. Studio DX potrà essere ritrasmesso dalle
emittenti che ne faranno semplice richiesta indicando le generalità
dell'emittente, le frequenze di trasmissione e l'orario in cui sarà
prevista la messa in onda. Per ulteriori informazioni, l'archivio e
gli indirizzi visitate il nostro sito internet.

I just caught the last few minutes of presumably his final edition

Wed 0100 9955
Wed 0130 5850 7730 9395
Thu 0330 7780
Sat 1230 5850
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.007, August 2 at 2212, VOT English is on today,
S9+5/20 into Maryland, S9+55 into UTwente: they agree on the unusual
+7 Hz offset (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, UR1 via WRMI, 0501-0507 UT August 2, VG into
Maryland SDR, `Ukraine: Security Issue`` for August 1 = day 159 of
Putin`s war. Including: Russian invaders stick to scorched-earth
tactix since beginning, shelled residential and civilian areas 60x
more than military targets leaving more than 3.5 million people
homeless (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2149 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday August 2 at 0048 the 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9/+10 undermodulated
direct [no longer // 9455 is S9+10/20 and louder].

Also confirmed Tuesday August 2 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 into
Maryland SDR; at first there is rapid clicking unlike Cuban jamming;
2232 stops; 2235 now conventional Cuban pulse jamming audible starting
to build up; after 2229 ID when BBB thinx this be ``9395``.

Also confirmed Tuesday August 2 at 2330 on WRMI really on 9395, S9/+15
into Maryland, undermodulated. Next:

due to alternative driver (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALBANIA [non]. 7730, August 1 at 0627, R. Tirana via WRMI, opening
German service! as if on ``3985``; with strange accent, I guess
Albanian. 0629 cut to Everglades ID, and 0630 to Brother Scare.
Richard Langley has also been noting this on UT Mondays: the timing of
automated recording of RT`s previous English broadcast is misaligned,
and after a bit of BS will be turned off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. Jen`s UT Sunday shows in the 18-22 UT slot are
inconveniently timed for me when I have other favorite listening; but
on July 31 I had the Shoutcast stream running,
http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/
and found it can be paused, so from 2007 it accumulated 2+ hours which
I then played back later in segments her World Beat Special. She
announces as on Unique Radio 5035, 3210 USB, but current sked and Tim
Gaynor confirm she`s on webcast only. Just in from Jen:

``Next Sunday a Real Deal of a Special, anyone for a Rebellion (Fest)
of Real Deal R & R music? More to follow towards the end of the week.
On the live digital stream, UT Sunday August 7th, 1800-2200.

Enjoy our World Beat Cast. Or our Pod. Jen & GB 73 & 33'``
[the full 4:17 July 31 broadcast can be reached here:]
https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/uniqueradioaus
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, August 1 at 2205, no signal from R. Cairo direct, so I
cannot comment on how horrible the modulation would be. Something`s
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. IRRS/NEXUS/IBA/IPAR on 7125?? As announced: see USA
[and non] WORLD OF RADIO monitoring. No, August 1 at 1801 still on
7290 with gospel huxtress and USB warble via UTwente, not on 7125
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, August 1 at 2200, REE another Monday, another week,
another month, still no token English as allegedly scheduled on REE;
rather another episode of `Canciones Ténebres` about Cuba. Rechecking
the English podcast page, still nothing new since 16 July. Ironically,
just before the 2200 timesignal was a song about summer in English on
the program outroed in Spanish as `Canciones de Verano`. Something`s
messed up in Madrid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, August 1 at 2205, no signal direct from VOT English;
and still no signal into UTwente at 2253 just before it would have
closed. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, August 1 circa 0500, missed checking for UR1
via WRMI with `Ukraine: Security Issue`; so heard later via:
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_31_07_22.mp3
You could reach further editions by changing the date on that. This
one for Day 158 includes: 41K Russian soldiers KIA since beginning of
war; missile strike on Mykolaiv killed noted businessman and his wife
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2149 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 31 from 2000.8, on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, not 918
or 207; S9+10/15 into nearby Noale SDR. Preceded by new canned ID by
YL claiming frequencies used by NEXUS/IBA are *7125*, 9510 and 1323!
Vaguely recall IRRS may have been on 7125 in the distant past, but
always has been hamband in Europe! Imaginary now instead of 7290
Bulgaria? see Italy [non]. Still shows 7290 here:
https://www.nexus.org/member-services/radio-and-tv/schedules/a22-schedule/
The announcement must be recently recorded, since 1323 was not
activated until this year.

WOR 2149 also confirmed Sunday July 31 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+20
into Athens, Georgia SDR; Knoxville is running but blank waterfall.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 1 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/9+10 into
Georgia; but it`s not L&C, a shame this one can no longer be aimed
WNW, but SW from FL.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 1 from 0259 on Area 51 webcast -- BUT
WBCQ 6160- is OFF the air! As checked on remotes and direct - and so
is R. Angela 5130-; but 7490- & 9330+ are still on and strong, and
there are no storms near Monticello now. What`s the problem? 3265+ is
not on either. I should have kept monitoring, but not rechecked until
0355 when both are back on, into Maryland SDR: 5129.973 toward the end
of `Concert Hall` on R. Angela; 6159.937 with repetitive looping?
music, presumably HRI on Area 51. So I don`t know whether back on with
part of WOR before 0328. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
1100 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
[ex-1000; also possibility of repeats later in night]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 1130 kHz, August 1 at 2212 UT, for the record, KLEY
Wellington KS enters another month of dead air; 250 watt day power
transmitter seems 24h (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, August 1 at 0633, RV is on but VP unreadable; also
JBA carrier on 7890, harmonix of unchecked 3945 where I never expect
to hear it despite fundamentalism (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2355 UT August 1

** CANADA. 284 MCW kHz, July 31 at 0635 UT, dash and QD, 500-watt ND
beacon at The Pas, Manitoba, is JBA vs storm and line noise levels.
Pleased to hear it but nothing else from Canada, nor any USA beyond
OK. 1956 km = 1215 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, July 31 at 0621, RHC English S7/S9 but very suptorted,
barely recognizable // big 6165, only other English still on air,
while 5040 remains but in Spanish. 11670 is supposed to be in Spanish
only and much earlier in evening. From time to time it shows like this
in English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Sunday July 31 at 1501, RHC is still on as weekly
Esperanto opens, but cut off by 1503 as meanwhile I have retuned to
11760 where sign-on continues to allege this frequency only, ignorant
of weaker // 15140, and even weaker carrier still on 15230 by 1505.
Also stuck on winter timings as if at 1600 UT instead of 1500, as well
as 0800 on 6100 instead of 0700 when it`s usually missing anyway; and
2330 or was it 2230 on 15730. Io ĉiam misas ĉe RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13628 & 13772 approx., July 31 at 1430, RHC
spurblobs out of 13700 AM transmitter. F# tone JBA but no readable
program modulation. Lower one louder than upper one. By 1457 have
shifted slightly to peak circa 13629 & 13771. 13629 has het from 13630
broadcaster, listed as from 1500, CRI English via Urumqi, East
Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom re-education, slave labor, even
genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. 6184.991, via UTwente, July 31 at 1901, ``Radio Classic
Sunday`` several IDs in English, rock, Dutch announcements. This is
why FRSH said it would not be on 6185 this week, but last and next
week.

Messy situation as presumed FRSH is on 7700.089 at S8/S9, 1907 giving
address in Netherlands; should be // 5800 but unseems, and then 1908
two signals are equally colliding; so someone will have to shift off
like last Sunday. No, 1923 recheck, still head-to-head. Manuel Méndez
says FRSH is on 5790.3, so must be *two others* on 5800. At 1946,
UTWente lox onto music on 5790.215.

Anyhow, it`s all rock music, and I would rather listen to `With Heart
& Voice` in $ tereo on WYSU HD2 stream as usual this hour on Sundays
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 515 MCW kHz, July 31 at 1428 UT, PN, 25-watt ND
beacon at PoNca City, is off. Had been reliably on for weeks and
audible day and night as strongest beacon, even moreso than 341 EI
EnId, 350 RG OKC which are reconfirmed on now; also Kansans 332 IC
wIChita, 395 CA 25 watts at Newton/Harvs are JBA; and 255 SW
StillWater OK is still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), July 31 at 0500, missed checking UR1 via
WRMI for `Ukraine: Security Issue` in English so monitored later via:
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_30_07_22.mp3
including: Russia should be declared a sponsor of terrorism, for mass
murder of POWs. Operation to rescue children in Donetsk region.
Missile destroys school in Kharkiv. Most Ukrainians in occupied areas
refuse to receive Russian passports prior to sham referendum. Pope
Francis still plans to visit Ukraine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2149 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday July 31 at 0331 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, about 17
minutes into so started circa 0314; S9+20 vs storm noise level, but
quite readable direct, where my receiver is a lot better than the
closest active KiwiSDRs in TN, IL, IA, barely detecting a carrier.

Missed checking Sunday July 31 at 1330v on WMRI Europe via Channel
292, Germany, 9670; anyone hear it? Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

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

** U S A. 9330.027, July 31 at 1506, WLCR via WBCQ in English,
S9+10/20. Larry Will explains: ``Hi Glenn, WBCQ tells me that the
superstition's R-420 transmitter is online, but part of the driver
circuit has failed and is in Continental's hands for rebuilding and/or
replacement. In the meantime they are using an alternative driver,
which explains the slight frequency offset you've observed these past
few weeks. If I learn anything else about the operation, I'll let you
know. Regards, Lw`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, July 31 at 0620, I can tell RV is on with music on
3 x 3945, S7/S9 noisy. Ron Howard was hearing it a lot better until
0820, says topix included 42nd Independence Day July 30, World
Hepatitis Day July 28 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALASKA. 18130 USB, July 30 at 2310, K7K on Kiska Island in the
Aleutians, calling CQ, then making a bunch of contacts. This is a
special event I had been seeking day and night on publicized phone
frequencies, nominally: 3790, 7090/7240, 14260, 18130, 21260, 24955,
28485 kHz. No luck until now directedly or remotedly; on the KFS Half
Moon Bay CA remote with omni antenna. QRX at 2320, heard again at 2330
with W3LAS; UT July 31 at 0000 another contact says he is going to
18116, unchecked.

July 31 is the final day for this expedition, so hurry up. Tnx to
Chuck Gessner for tip on the WOR iogroup. Lots more interesting info,
maps, wildlife at their website. https://www.qrz.com/db/K7K

Chuck reported: ``A group of radio amateurs is currently operating,
using the amateur radio callsign K7K, from the Aleutian Islands,
specifically Kiska Island, Alaska from July 25th to the 31st.

It is a special event operation to celebrate the 80th anniversary of
the WW2 Battle Of The Aleutians. They are operating on amateur radio
frequencies in the 3.5, 7, 10, 14, 17, 21, 24, 28, and 50 MHz bands.
See their website for specific frequencies.

Kiska Island is part of the Aleutian Islands WWII National Monument
and the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge

They are using CW, SSB, and digital FT8 modes. They will also be using
the amateur radio call sign KL7RRC during the Islands On The Air
contest this weekend`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Saturday July 30 started monitoring
Buenos Aires area SDR circa 1445, but no LRA36 until abrupt cut-on at
*1507 during song; 1509 sign-on, multilingual including English, with
three different versions of name: Radio San Gabriel; Radio Arcángel
San Gabriel, and finally, Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel; staff
list, ``Nacional, La Radio Pública``; 1511 Antártida themesong, maybe
should be called Base Esperanza song, also mentions Marambio. Wish we
could get the complete and correct lyrix/letra, let alone title. 1514
historical items concerning something in 1905; first Catholic mass on
the continent in 1946y. 1518 a song; 1523 live greetings by the YLs
[live, that is on original Wednesday airing], as 13th program in the
2022 series of ``Esperanza Audaz, bajo el cielo más austral``; ``muy
buenos días`` altho at 15Z it`s noon local time. In the second week of
vacations, apparently referring to local school #38. Any of the 4-YL
crew brought own kids if XYLs? Winds have hit 141 km/h. 1530 phone
numbers and other contact info but chopped off air abruptly at
1531:20*, never to return. Thruout there has been lite QRM from series
of rapid clix, now in the clear, two different pitches alternating, as
if talking to each other. Gary Pence, Dallas, was listening via same
remote and could also detect RNASG into Half Moon Bay CA (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.47, July 30 at 2045 and still 2220 UT, the Enid
CBer is beeping continuously instead of relaying one broadcast station
or another (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 97.3, July 30 at 1755 UT on caradio, CCI
including ``Mother Angelica will be taking calls...``, [A neat trick
since she died on March 27, 2016 --- and as ``more Catholic than the
Pope`` must not be on track for beatfication by the current regime];
1757 EWTN and Global Catholic Radio mentioned. Doubt it`s Es; we are
in unseasonably cool and wet spell, with fringe tropo up. WTFDA FMDB
gets no 97.3 hits on EWTN or Eternal! But it`s probably nearby:

KKNG-FM 97.3 BLANCHARD OK RELIGIOUS TEACHING 1.0 kW 244.0 m 35-10-38
97-36-10 2BC0 Visit us at WWW.OKCR.ORG

Not a hint that this one is Catholic until going to website:
OKLAHOMA CATHOLIC RADIO, ARCHDIOCESE OF OKC including:
https://okcr.org/schedule
Sat noon to 1 pm: `The Church Alive`, not labeled as an EWTN program,
but several others are; and admittedly an EWTN affiliate.

This raises a question about my presumed log of KNEH-LP 97.3 Hélena MT
on July 23 during a big sporadic E opening with lots of other Montana
stations; based on it also being Catholic.

Blanchard is beyond OKC, SW of Norman, 141 km = 88 miles.

Anyhow, the OKCR network in OK, with no info about which are real
stations, which LP, or translators:

``FIND YOUR LOCAL STATION
Oklahoma City: 97.3 FM
Tulsa: 94.9 FM
Broken Arrow: 102.9 FM
Clinton: 98.3 FM
Edmond: 100.9 FM
Elk City: 100.7 FM
Lawton: 88.3 FM
Ringwood: 104.9 FM [yet to be heard in nearby Enid; off or on?]
Shawnee: 107.1 FM
Woodward: 93.3 FM

En Español
West Oklahoma City: 99.3 FM
Midwest City: 97.7
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN ONLINE!``

BTW, KKNG was formerly the call on 92.5 OKC with beautiful music
format ``King``, to go with 95.5 Tulsa KWEN ``Queen``, still called
but not so branded, while 92.5 became KOMA ex-1520.

I was hearing it while driving around Enid; even before I pull into
the garage KKNG is losing out by 1759 to a country station; 1803 ad
with 620 area code and Dodge City mention; 1808 ``Continuous Country,
Q97``:

KKJQ 97.3 GARDEN CITY KS COUNTRY Q 97 FM 100.0 kW 244.0 m KKJQ THE
DAWG --- 317 km = 197 mi.

Later I`m back in the garaged car hoping that an Es FM DX opening east
of here will spread a little further, but at 0100 UT July 31, nothing
more unusual than another fringe Kansan overtaking Okie KOKC
translator, ID as ``KWKN, Hayes, your new home for news, talk and
sports``, so isn`t the `Cowboy` branding passé?:

KWKN 95.3 WAKEENEY KS TALK/SPORTS 95.3 THE COWBOY 100.0 kW 158.0 m ---
341 km = 212 miles, west of Hayes.

Well south of Hayes, KKDT Burdett on 93.5, tho only 95 kW is a regular
on the fringe, just faded up from nothing to sufficient --- 248 km =
154 miles (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), July 30 at 0500+, missed monitoring WRMI for
today`s `Ukraine: Security Issue`; so I listen later on its website,
for July 29 = Day 156 of Putin`s war, including: Russian soldier
torturing POW caught on video; Odesa ready to ship grain, and Istanbul
ready to receive it. Lasted over 7 minutes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2149 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday July 30 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 5130, S7/S9+10 with
storm crashes into Maryland SDR minus 28 Hz = 5129.972. Notice that I
misspelt Ourgla, Algeria site as ORUGLA - well, better than making it
QURGLA as I sometimes see it.

Also confirmed Saturday July 30 at 1600 on WRN for North America
webcast. Is anyone listening direct from International Vacuum?

Unable to check Sat July 30 at 1930v on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, since
nearby SDR is offline. Nor can I hear it on the closest others, in IL,
IA, MO, KS; in the daytime. Did anyone hear it? Better luck tonight.
Anyhow repeated 1930 on WRN webcast.

Confirmed UT Sunday July 31 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9 with high
storm noise level direct; at 0044, S8/9+5 and noisy into Maryland.

** VANUATU. 11835, July 30 at 0628, RV is on at S4-S6, noisy, 3 x
3945. This becomes ``routine`` and not always logged until it`s
missing again, leaving us unsure when it were last heard. But such an
harmonic is really never routine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
