** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, continued from previous report:
extraneous German hour from VOT plays completely until chopoff at
0058* Dec 14 during IS, as if intentional, once IS has apparently
started IDs in Portuguese, prior to another unfulfilled extraneous
hour at 0100, in this case a language never supposed to be on SW; VG
into UTwente, uncovering Xinjiang ChiCom service, std denunciation
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2221)

** U S A. 1130, Dec 14 at 0744 UT, super-cheater KLEY Wellington KS,
YL weather she precedes and follows with this branding I`ve never
heard before: ``Super Hits 1130 AM and 104.1 FM``. The station
obviously running 250X its authorized nite power of one watt (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2221)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 14 at 0448:
only 891, surely Algeria. Repeated bandscans might encounter a few
others with enough signal to detect, vs. variable supersplash from NAm
10/kHz stations, and their own fading, which tends to be quite slow if
unimpeded (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1218.1 approx., JBA carrier hetting 1220.0 stations.
Reminds me of 2011/2013y era when KMVL Madisonville TX was on 1219.84
and/or its co-channel experimental booster. Current mwoffsets shows
only one lower than that, WERT Van Wert OH on 1219.5 as of 2023-08-12
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 5910, Dec 13 at 0446, no signal from CRI via CUBA
supposed to run to 0500, when on blasting away poor Alcaraván Radio,
COLOMBIA, which now lux out with music about 5909.7. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 13 at 0447, RHC S9+20/30 but JBM in presumed
English. They can`t even keep one transmitter going properly. No other
Cubans on 5, 6 or 9 MHz bands. Something`s very wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Finally heard from OG&E guy Dec 13, that two bad
insulators had been found less than a mile away, and indeed the SW
intermittent arcing/buzzing seems to have stopped. Still a loud
continuous buzz worst on LW, apparently something else and he doesn`t
have a radio tuning LW (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Dec 13 at 2300, after ``Camelot`` song in English,
token English from SNR is VG direct; preview topic after news to be
the month-long Xmas lite festival at Vigo which has drawn various
complaints such as light pollution (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Dec 13 at 2327, VOT not off the air,
S9+20/40 into UTwente, starting `Weekly Commentary` by some professor
that ``Biden has already lost Arab-American support``; read by the
badax I am not going to strain to understand. 2345 `Feeling
Supreme/The Healing Spring`, repeat about osteoporosis. 2353 canned
s/off version with correct but incomplete schedule. 2353.5 IS. 2356
restart IS with German IDs. 0000 Dec 14, timesignal few seconds early
and s/on extraneous German, into news. Still going past 0010;
something`s always erroneous at Emirler. 0014 finally cutoff abruptly
uncovering ChiCom music. Ooops, at 0019 hearing German again, so must
have resumed, past 0028+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4095, Dec 13 at 0441, sweeps upward are JBA from `Desert
Whooper` which periodically CWs as DW. Vs S9 local noise level. Often
passed in bandscans but seldom bothered to relog.

Likewise I always check 2097.3 for the single-letter beacon A from
Anywhere except Quartzsite AZ, but haven`t heard a trace of it since
last winter? Must be QRT. Must pause on 2097 USB for at least 11
seconds since its cycle was 10 sex (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2220 monitoring: confirmed UT
Wednesday December 13 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+20 direct.

Brief awakening, sometime before 1300 Wed Dec 13 tried for Unique
Radio, Australia, 5035 USB but as expected zero signal from this LP
direct.

Also confirmed Wednesday December 13 at 1520 on WRMI 9955, S5/S7, the
unscheduled 1500 supposedly on Thu instead of Wed.

Not confirmed Wed Dec 13 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490 -48 Hz = 7489.952 into
Maryland SDR -- instead replaying last week`s 2219. They should have
had access to the latest 2220 as usual. Compared to WWV 5 & 10 this
SDR is accurately calibrated. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 9455, Dec 13 at 0454, WRMI is not off the air but S9+20/30
with `Legends` promo, very undermodulated i.e. not quite qualifying as
just-barely, and moremod on // 5050 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, Dec 13 at 0440, WWCR is suptorted with talk, yet
S9+20/30; wiggle that patchcord. Not // 4840, 5890 or 5935 with OK
modulation. Dead giveaway that no one at 1300 WWCR Ave can stand to
constantly listen to their own gospel huxters to detect and fix any
problems, yet they foist them upon the wideworld. Scheduled this hour
on WWCR-1 is `Call to Decision` --- sorry, Butch (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Dec 13 at 0451, S9+20 of deadair from WRNO, then some
JBM music, at first suspected as an understation but nonesuch
scheduled, so guess it`s WRNO itself. 0746 recheck, S9/+25 of deadair
only. Something`s messed up at Metairie (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Dec 13 at 0803 UT tune-in, just as rock music
breaks for ID as KLEY Wellington KS and two FM translators -- no
shame, obviously 250 watt day power instead of legal ONE WATT at
night; normally dominates KWKH and anything else here. Used to be on
100.3, but moved to 104.1 K281DI per WTFDA FM DB, which yet still
shows branding as 100.3 The Wave. No hits if you search on KLEY in the
`Relay of` field: it has to be KLEY-1130, and no other translator hits
either with that. Format AC, no longer Country as in NRC AM Log. At
least it`s not jointly IDing with sibling station, probably same
computer bank, KKLE 1550 Winfield KS which is bluegrass.

1130, Dec 13 at 1901 UT I listen again carefully for ID: no `The Wave`
branding, just `a My Town Media station` - I think, hard to understand
but that is the current licensee; second translator chex as K281DI, and
the first one maybe a -262- which = 100.3, so is that still on the
air? No such xltr anywhere in KS per FCC and WTFDA (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 13 at 0432:
891, 963, 1431 kHz; Algeria and two more intriguing ones (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1090 kHz, Dec 13 at 0802 UT, maybe trace of a tone under
presumed KAAY AR. KMXA Aurora CO had been reported intoning all night;
still? It`s 50/0.5 kW. Could be mistaken for a TA or TP het from 1089
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5990, Dec 12 at 2318 CRI relay is S9+30/40 but JBM.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Dec 12 at 2314, rock music S9+20. These
reports since 2147 with SSTV images say Thunder Chicken Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,122545.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 275 MCW kHz, Dec 11 at 2319 UT, 25-watt GUY Guymon is the
only somewhat unusual NDB audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Dec 12 at 2259, VOT is not off, IS with
English ID, 2300 opening with the 3-hour-off-local-time-called-UTC
sked. S9+10/20 vs S9+40 intermittent local noise bursts, but even
between them not solid L&C reception. No time to listen meanwhile,
until: 2353, S9+30/40 into UTwente, same wrong s/off sked as at s/on,
2354 only 6 notes of IS before chopoff uncovering ChiCom, etc. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2220 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT
Tuesday Dec 12 at 0130 on WRMI 9395: replaced without notice by
`Teachers Corner`, mostly music but 0138 brief announcement, and
skedgrid already updated to show that at 01-02.

Confirmed UT Tuesday December 12 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, JBA direct.

Also confirmed Tuesday December 12 at 1400 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20
direct. Next:

** U S A. 9455, Dec 12 at 0749, this WRMI is AWOL again tonight. Next
check at 2312 it`s on at S9+10/20 but JBM. Something`s outoforder at
Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my 7490v + webcast WBCQ report, on Dec 12, Uncle Bill
responds: ``Plain Old Doug Show has been filling in for Ginga Brasil!
which will return January 14, the second and fourth weeks. PODS will
be doing Christmas Eve and NYE (US) as well {UT Mondays}. However,
January starts a weekly Plain Old Doug Show, Mondays at 0200-0230 UT
on 7490. Yeah, the timer was off at the station, I believe that has
been addressed. My UBMP this weekend will be vintage Brazilian funk
plus Greek laika cinematic music hits`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 810.6 kHz approx., het against 810 stations, no audio
pullable but seems too strong to be a local birdie and nonesuch noted
here before. Nothing any more than +045 Hz in mwoffsets list {adding
time and date! 0529 UT Dec 11 and none of it next night} (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Dec 11 at 0509, R. Progreso still on past local
midnight playing `Let It Be` -- yes, a song from the Free World, S9+30
but somewhat undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba;
5025 Rebelde is on now despite sporadic appearances (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 11 at 0513, RHC S9+20/30 but JBM in English, and
not at all anywhere else. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.989, Dec 10 at 2136, S9+30 of totally deadair in
English from R. Cairo into UTwente, twice as far off-frequency than
usual 9439.995, so different transmitter, or old one jostled?
Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Dec 11 at 2300, token English from SNR: after
news, 2308 first interview about El Camino de Santiago having
become a UNESCO World Heritage Site two sesquidecades ago. 2320 about
anniversary of Berlin Wall falling in 1989y, and start in Madrid of a
7-year exhibition about it with several heavy sexions of the Wall
itself. S9+30/40 direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Dec 10 at 2319, VOT not off the air,
S9+35/45 into UTwente, 2320 `Weekly Analysis` by John -- but read by a
different YL voice than the usual ones, something about Israel &
Hamas. Says Israel has committed ``mass genocide`` -- guess that`s
even worse than mere genocide. 2352 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo;
2353 s/off with correct but incomplete English sked overlooking this
very broadcast. 2354 IS. Still on at 0000 timesignal several seconds
early and opening German, but off by next check 0006 Dec 11,
uncovering XJPBS East Turkistan, land of ChiCom imperialist genocide
against Uyghurs and other Moslems. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler.

5960.005, Dec 11 at 2339, VOT not off the air in English, S9+30/40
into UTwente, ``always-by-your-side`` promo, `Feeling Supreme/The
Healing Spring` on natural remedies for osteoporosis; 2346
``with-you-every-hour`` promo, `Did You Know That`, badax on a 1,255
km-long river. 2351 s/off with English schedule, all-wrong local times
called UTC. Seems they have about 3 different versions of the s/on/off
with a variety of defects, alternating. 2352 IS, and off by 2353*
uncovering the 6CI of only S9+15/25, which had been an undercurrent,
std denunciation. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [non]. 6170, Dec 11 at 0515, S9+10/20 in African language.
EiBi shows VOA Hausa via ASCENSION this semihour only (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2220 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday December 10 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+5
and no QRM into UTwente across Europe.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 11 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 but
noisy into Durango2 SDR; still no noise blast first 14 seconds.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 11 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ

** U S A. (7490-), UT Mon Dec 11 at 0000, WBCQ webcast with music
instead of `Le Show`, 0005 outro `Plain Old Doug Show`, which has
replaced `Ginga Brasil` and Uncle Bill says his `Melting Pot` will be
on next Sunday at 2300. Very unusual for WBCQ to be running late like
this; had not noticed any buffering buildup and is more or less the
same on 7490v via Virginia SDR. `Le Show` starts immediately from
beginning, so maybe it too would run over past 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Dec 11 at 0521, WRMI-5 is OFF despite nominal 24/7
usage; should be `Legends` at 04-06 or -07 in self-contradictory
skedgrid. 9395 still on with TOMBS and much weaker 9955, // 9265 WINB.
Something`s off at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265v, Dec 11 at 0521, WINB with hymn on TOMBS // but not
synchro 9395 WRMI. Latest program sked dated Dec 3 shows this TOMBS
segment daily at 0502-0658; then DRM somewhere from 0700, weekends
from 0800. I thought all WINB DRM had been dropped months ago.
DRMRX.org sked shows no WINB. But HFCC has these registrations, all
imaginary?:
07-08 daily 7330;
08-09 S/S 13655;
08-11 M-F & 09-10 S/S 9265;
11-12 M-F 15125;
12-17 M-F 15725. [I should not have to punxuate these, but some
destinations delete the line breaks, saving trees?] WINB never
disclosed the purpose or who was sponsoring these broadcasts which
were hybrid, half programming, half encrypted? digitalism (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Early UT Mon Dec 11, WTWW & WWCR are on, ops normal, despite
tornado hitting Nashville, I know not where exactly, much worse in
Clarksville, already devoid of SW stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 660, Dec 11 at 0526 UT Navajo chanting, segué to country
song in English, culture clash! Suspect KTNN, AZ/NM, dominating
channel, so on 50 kW ND day pattern not protecting NYC? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

1566, 1710. Later on a 10/kHz bandscan at 0527 another one not noted
earlier: 711 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 810.6 kHz approx., het against 810 stations, no audio
