Hauser
** EGYPT. 9440- nor 9442+, Nov 27 at 2153, no signals into UTwente
from R. Cairo during the 2115 English sesquihour. Something`s amiss at
Abis, egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** HONDURAS. 28377 USB, Nov 27 at 1611, HQ9X working pileups on same
frequency. Again by chance at 2323 working Napa, California. QRZ.com:

HQ9X Honduras flag Honduras
W1UE K1XM KQ1F CQ WW DX CW Contest 2017
Roatan Island, Honduras

``W1UE, K1XM, KQ1F will be active from Roatan Island, IOTA NA - 057,
Honduras, in CQ WW DX CW Contest 25 - 26 November 2017 as HQ9X``

But this is 27 Nov. Also linx to this illustrated info about the
island, not the DXpedition:
https://dxnews.com/hq9x/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 267 MCW kHz, Nov 27 at 0254 UT, HET is JBA for a change,
25 watt NDB from HenryETta, seldom heard. Axually listening on 265
USB; 201 km = 125 stmi from Enid. Still suffering from hi line noise
level, worst on LW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Nov 27 at 2300, token English from SNR, news, 2309
contact info, 2310 interview with a prof from Denmark about importance
of oceans, including seabeds with cables, pipelines. Finally stopped
giving total B23 transmission sked at outset with no language details,
but not yet? with advisory they have been emailing that will be
totally off the air, as forwarded by Nino Marabello, Treviso, Italy,
to the WOR iog:

``We inform you that on December 4 and 5, Radio Exterior de España
will be forced to suspend its shortwave broadcasts. The reason: a cut
in the electricity supply, beyond our control, which will affect the
shortwave broadcasting center that Radio Exterior has in the town of
Noblejas. The stoppage is due to some work that the Unión Fenosa
company has to carry out in the electrical substation of that Toledo
municipality and that will affect our facilities. Consequently, the
shortwave broadcast will be suspended next Monday, December 4 and will
continue until Wednesday, December 6, at most, when the signal will
resume. We apologize for this incident, completely beyond the control
of Radio Exterior de España.
THANKS EVERYBODY, GREETINGS. Director of Foreign Radio of Spain``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWITZERLAND [non]. 17790, Nov 26 at 2100-2200, another C.M. Obrecht
music special, as publicized, wider variety of music than he is known
for, electronic compositions. With many announcements in German and
heavily accented English. Sufficient signal into Brasília SDR, except
it times out every 15 minutes, and fake stereo mode SAS enhances. This
is via WRMI-7 which is otherwise only for the Radio Africa Network at
15-21, just extended an hour; still on 160-degree beam toward S
America, hoping some of it will reach Africa anyway, lacking a
long-destroyed proper antenna thataway. At 2200 nevertheless starts to
play a R. Africa s/off before chopped (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 26 at 2317, VOT English not off the air,
S9+35 into UTwente; too much else ongoing to pay rapt attention, but a
few notes: 2317 ``always-by-your-side`` promo; 2325 `Weekly Analysis`
outro; 2329 multi-lingual ID filler reel. Back to the non-squealing +5
Hz transmitter, rather than the +17 Hz squealer yesterday.

[and non]. 5960.005, Nov 27 at 2325, not off the air, S9+10/20 direct,
multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2333 over to UTwente at S9+20/30, 2335
outro `New Day, New Choices`, ``always-by-your-side`` promo; 2339 `Did
You Know That` there is a masterpiece of a mosque near Istanbul with a
great view; 2344 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music; 2350
multi-lingual ID filler reel crutch, again; 2352, s/off with partial
English schedule omitting this one, but at least correct times and
frequencies as far as they went! 2353 IS; 2356* off uncovering the
CCCCCCI from East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide
against Uighurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKQOGBANI [non]. SEALAND on 60 Minutes including pirate radio
angle:
https://www.cbsnews.com/video/visiting-sealand-60-minutes-video-2023-11-26/
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/micronation-sealand-bates-royal-family-60-minutes-transcript/

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/sealand-the-micronation-carving-its-own-path-60-minutes/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 353 MCW kHz, Nov 27 at 0256, LI, 400 watt NDB from LIttle
Rock AR, seldom heard but now anything outside OK is notable vs local
noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2218 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
November 26 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+5 into
UTwente with no QRM.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 27 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 but
noisy into Durango2 SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 27 at 0403 the 0400 on Area 51 via
WBCQ 6160-, S6/S9 direct, better via Maryland remote tho rating only
S5/S7 on its meter. Next:

Or via PayPal not necessarily in US funds to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490V, Nov 27 at 0004, `Le Show` on WBCQ, only S7/S8 into
Maryland SDR, unstable varying widely between +531 and +678 Hz; need
to get webcast instead; but unusually seems // 5130.363 and not
varying much, instead of ATATT. 6160- not measured but something else;
and 3265+ as usual silent. Harry Shearer tripping over his tongue more
than usual as I am concerned about his health; must require multiple
takes for his The Simpsons characters. Nov 27 at 2320, 7490 again
AWOL; JBA 5130.3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3090, Nov 27 circa 0700 and earlier, not a trace of the KBUF
KS third harmonic I heard 24 hours before. Apparently totally
repaired, but worth further chex just in case along with 2060, 4120,
5150 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** WALES. 24964 USB, Nov 27 at 1617, MW0YVK working Statesiders.
QRZ.com:
MW0YVK Wales flag Wales, Eddy Howells, 72 hollywell cresent ,
ABERGAVENNY, MONMOUTHSHIRE NP7 5LG, Wales

``QSL: QSL CARD $ 3 THANKS OR NO QSL CARD RETURN NO IRC
Hi and welcome to my qrz page. I live in the small market town of
Abergavenny In South East Wales 76.206 METERS ASL

I was raised in this town and have been operating radio since 1979.
Passing my B licence in 1994 with the call GW7WFO then finally passing
my full amateur call in 2002 with the above callsign. I am now retired
and my job was working as a signalman on the railways. WAB SO31``

And displaying certificates, some of which do not load (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search of entire band, Nov
27 at 0258, finds only 621, likely 100/75 kW RNE Canary Is; and maybe
on 819 where I normally hear nothing; most likely by far is 300 kW
from Batrah, Egypt, 24h per mwlist (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7780-7830 approx., Nov 27 at 0750, strong multitonal
over this 50 kHz range, barely evading WRMI, peak should be about 7805
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BOTSWANA. 15585, Nov 26 at 1927, music with poor signal into NC
SDR. Tnx to tip from Chris Campbell, OH that VOA was off-frequency
instead of 15580, at 1800, 1838. EiBi shows nothing anywhen on 15585,
while VOA is sked on 15580 at 0500-0730, 1400-1630, 1730-2100 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749 USB, Nov 26 at 0730 UT, algo JBA in English, presumed
CCG with marine weather; but nothing sked in EiBi or dxinfocentre
before 0740, VCO Sydney NS. Maybe additional for urgent/emergency
info? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2218 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday November 26 at 0111, the 0100 on WRMI 9955, S5/S8 into Maryland

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 26 at 0426 about 7 minutes into so
started circa 0419, on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, S9/+20.

** U S A. 1550, Nov 26 at 1619 UT, `The Bluegrass Express` between
tunes. 1700 ToH ID as ``The Bluegrass Express, on 1550, KKLE,
Winfield, Kansas``. Weak but steady groundwave with SAH probably from
Sapulpa if it`s on. I was checking this out for Mauno Ritola of WRTH,
who asked earlier: ``Hi Glenn, do you hear this station? Is it still
on operation as "Bluegrass Express"? Thanks, Mauno``

I replied at first: ``Believe I did last time I tuned by. Will have to
check in daytime. 73, Glenn`` -- meanwhile Mauno replied:

``Thanks. Later I noticed in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KKLE :
"In September 2023, KKLE began airing an all-bluegrass music format,
branded as "The Bluegrass Express"", quoting:

https://www.sumnernewscow.com/wellington-radio-is-back-on-the-air-kley-and-kwme-are-being-relaunched/
Also reported on the air in October:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tin4bICS_xM
So I suppose they still continue, but if you happen to check, please
confirm. 73, Mauno`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3090 kHz, Nov 26 at 0731 UT, S9 pop music in AM --- whoopee,
must be a third harmonic from 1030. It`s been ages since I have DXed
any such MW harmonic. No other fundamental would be an even fit. This
on the E/W longwire which is icy. Soon find // music tuning the DX-398
to 1030, and rough DF for NW/SE. On 1030 only, CCI from a C2C station,
no doubt KTWO WY, nothing unusual there. Then refined to country
format, 0743 all too brief YL announcement, maybe not an ID, also 0749
between tunes. Also audible weaker on 2060 = 2 x 1030 and 4120 = 4 x
1030; even a JBA carrier on 5150 = 5 x 1030. 6180 unchecked but might
soon confront Brasil. Paucity of 1030 stations around here makes KBUF
Holcomb = Garden City KS very likely, except in current NRC AM Log it
is also a talker. One tune identified at 0746, `The Greatest Man I
Never Knew`, by Reba, i.e. her father. But by 0755, 3090 is fading
down to S5, and gone by 0800 ToH ID time! Are they tweaking the
transmitter?

KBUF doesn`t quite make it here on groundwave daytime circa 1730 UT to
check whether a format change, JBA carrier vs S9+20 line noise. But:
Radio-locator shows address, where else? Valley City ND yet leads to
website with streaming:
https://www.westernkansasnews.com/kbuf/
and guess what, at 1757 it`s C&W music despite ostensible branding as
``The Ag Leader``. 1800 ID and ABC News, 1805 back to country. 1812
ABC News again but JBM on stream, 1813 blasts on with ID and back to
C&W. ``We love being your Ag Leader, KBUF``. 1820, `Sixteen Tons``.
Maybe they are mainly C&W on weekends or part time among talk. Website
does not link to any program schedule; who cares about that?

Going by NRC AM Log, the only C&Ws on 1030 are: WEBS in Georgia, 3
watts at night; and WYCZ in Tennessee, 250. At 1810 I check for
harmonix in daytime but none heard (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers, Nov 26 at 0507: 621,
711, 891 kHz, checking likely spots below 1200, not 9/kHz complete
scan; likely Canary, W Sahara, Algeria. No Spains on 684, 774, 855
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1946 UT November 26

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Nov 25 at 1800, LRA36 is already
talking, S5/S7 into Argentine remote vs noise level there around S5.
Lunch. 1854 next check, no signal. 1915 next2 check, back on with
music at S7/S8; 1920 mentions temp of +5 apparently current; over to
Eduardo in Misiones; 1925 Noticias Australes.

I still do detect a JBA reduced carrier by off-tuning downwards in
USB. And it still sounds marginally better at 15475.98 than 15476 as
so many report it, even ignoring the carrier. Further chex but no time
to pay attention, still going at 2046, 2200, 2307. 2354 just as I
check, an RNASG ID, music.

It`s still going past 2400, so by 0006 November 26 I am tuning for it
directly via my 100-foot E/W longwire. And there it is, JBA music at
S5, its own S the same as the noise level. First time in months I`ve
tried for and heard successfully, but for any content still need the
Argentine remote. I also check UTwente in Europe, which is now getting
it slightly better than I am. K-index of 4 may help. 0024 still
detectable at Arg remote but losing out to noise level. BTW, neighbors
have already put up their flashing Xmas lights, so we`re in for a
sesquimonth of additional RF noise like every yearend (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [and non?]. 6005 & 7555, I am pleased to see that my Nov 24
obs of DRM have already been entered by Nov 25 in:
https://www.drmrx.org/drm-broadcasts-shortwave-by-frequency/
Chris Mackerell of WOR affiliate World FM in New Zealand, maintains
this (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. Ron Howard replies Nov 25 to my latest report about R.
Kiribati: ``Glenn - This past week (Nov 19+) I have also been checking
846, here at Asilomar State Beach, and like you, have had no hint of a
carrier (0630+ UT). Is probably off the air or running extremely low
power? Ron``. GB on `Calling All Radio Nutzzz` also mentioned us about
this not being heard as he also dealt with the other Xmas Island in
the Indian Ocean. He pronounced K- and K- as if in English rather than
approximating `kuh-ris-mas` and `kir-ee-bass` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, K17JN-D, Enid`s only local TV signal, has made a
lot of changes since it reactivated after a month of black and
silence. Taking a close look at the PSIP ID on a larger screen, I see
it claims to be K17JI-D!!!! They can`t even get their own callsign
right. FCC LMS confirms it`s still K17JN-D, while K17JI-D is in Fresno
CA! The lineup is different and differently labeled, checked at 0450
UT Nov 25:
17-1, K17JI-D [sic] = main 3ABN channel
17-2, 3ABN-PR = Proclaim
17-3, skipped, why?
17-4, 3ABN-ES = eSpanish
17-5, 3ABN-KD = Kids = Hope Channel
17-6, skipped, why?
17-7, 3ABN-RD Audio only
17-8, 3ABN-RL Audio only - but silent!
17-9, skipped, why?
17-10, 3ABN-MR Audio only
FCC shows it`s licensed until 2030y to Clarion Broadcasting Group,
Ltd. Is this a front for 3ABN or a different entity renting to 3ABN? I
suppose the same jumbling may apply to many/all other 3ABN
satellators. I`ve already sent this to rabbitears.info so we`ll see if
and how correxions appear there (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TAIWAN. 9405, Nov 25 at 1628 S5/S7 of M&W in English, mentioning
Taiwan; could this be CRI? No, it`s really RTI as in EiBi at 16-17 for
S Asia, and not even jammed. Apparently their last/only English hour
as the other one at 03-04 on 15320 has not been listed or confirmed.
Wed at 1645 on 9405 is supposed to be `Status Update` as in
DX/SWL/Media Programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.017, Nov 25 at 2309, VOT is not off the air,
going from news to music, S9+40 into UTwente, with a squeal;
presumably different transmitter and also further offset than usual.
2315 `Captain`s Log` about a fishing town with a lighthouse on the
Bosphorus. 2320 music. 2325 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2328
`Gripping Piles` on environmental impact of fashion industry, repeat
by the badax. 2333 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2337
`Turkey`s Geomarked [sic] Products`` about processing almonds. The
undercurrent from the CCCCCCI is increasing by ratio and the squeal
remains annoying. 2340 music. 2344 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo,
music. 2349 s/off by badax with usual totally WRONG A23 English times
and frequencies. 2351 IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs twice per
minute. 2400 timesignal about 12 seconds early even considering
internet delay, opening German, ``Liebe hoerer...``, then chopped off,
in time for accurate timesig from East Turkistan, std. denunciation,
ChiCom anthem/theme, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2218 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday November 25 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR.

UNIDENTIFIED. 891 kHz, Nov 25 at 0741, JBA carrier vs WLS, presumably
Algeria; nothing else this late checking a few other 9/kHz splits,
684, 774, 855 kHz Spain. Need to do some full TA carrier bandscans
much earlier in evening, but propagation has been degraded lately

** FRANCE. 6000-6005-6010, Nov 24 at 0813, DRM noise S9+20. Nothing
listed in Aoki, EiBi, nor drmrx, but yes in HFCC:
6005 0800 0900 17,18,27,80 ISS 100 350 0 146 1234567 291023 300324 N
8500 Fra F TDF TDF 4089 DRM TES -- 350 is a very strange azimuth from
ISS; the CIRAF targets convert to France, UKQOGBANI, Ireland, Iceland,
Scandinavia including Svalbard and the uninhabited central North
Atlantic south of Iceland. See also UNID 7555 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290.003, Fri Nov 24 at 1853, JBV signal into UTwente,
locking onto exciter? *1857 pop up to full power open carrier on same
offset, 1859 IRRS/NEXUS/IBA s/on interrupts a few extraneous words
first and then JIP news, probably FSN. Before 1900, heavy ACI from
7285 China. Lunchtime for me. Recheck at 1944, 7290 is off! already
with heavy ACI from 7295 China in English. By 1957, CRI English on
both 7285 & 7295 vs no 7290. Aoki & EiBi both say IRRS site is
BULGARIA, considered confidential if not top secret by IRRS
``Milano``. But both Aoki & EiBi still show wrong summer time of
1800-1900 UT instead of 1900-2000 now. Aoki even still shows WOR at
1815-1845 Friday, canceled many months ago, but I was going to check
what occupy that shifted slot now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 2320 UT, ND beacon SW in
StillWater is JB readable as the local line noise has finally abated
considerably but still occasional bursts: audiblized are numerous
birdies on LW, nevertheless a good sign, rather than any DX beacons,
yet. OG&E never contacted me after latest complaint, so unknown
whether they really did anything (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 24 at 2300, token English from SNR, 2305 after
news, two interviews about molestation of children by the Catholic
church in Spain; a survey of 8000 adults found that 1% said they had
been. Even that is too much. A lot more of them were boys than girls.
VG S9+30 direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 21485, Nov 24 at 1524, R. Tamazuj via FRANCE is
in English! But heavy Afro accents, M&W hardly copiable but think they
mention elexions; and in and out of another language, presumably Juba
Arabic. 1529 past 1532 in Horn-of-Africish music, S5/S8. It`s the OSOB
except for the other Issoudun on 21690. Tamazuj has been known to
include English segments but not shown in EiBi; 21485 absent from
Aoki; HFCC shows only Apd language at 1430-1600, 250 kW, 135 degrees
from ISS. WRTH 2023 mentions no English either; but the name means
intermingling or mixing; that could be anathema to some faxions (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Nov 24 at 2314, VOT not off the air
with multi-lingual ID filler reel, S9+10/20 direct; 2323 outro for
`Weekly Commentary` - or was it `Weekly Analysis` -- what`s the
difference, something about Gaza; and with-you-every-hour promo. Then
via UTwente at 2348, S9+30/35 music. 2353 s/off, ``You have been
listening ---`` and chopped off the air! Too early is no compensation
for too late; but sked would have been wrong anyway. Uncovers the 6CI,
std denunciation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler, awry at
Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2218 monitoring: confirmed Friday
November 24 at 2148 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9/+8
into UTwente across Europe and no QRM; not bad for 858 km = 533 miles,
5 or 1 kW per mwlist, or maybe already the F.Pl. of 15?

Also confirmed Friday November 24 at 2300 the first SW BC, on WRMI
9955, JBA on the DX-398, but at 2315, S9/+10 into R75, undermodulated
with pulse jamming. Next:

** U S A [and non]. 9955, Nov 24 at 0747, WRMI-3 is S7 but just barely
modulated = JBM, during music presumably during TOMBS = The Overcomer
Ministry Brother Scare, also lite pulse jamming by the relentless,
clueless Cuban Commies.

9955, Nov 24 at 1521, WRMI is S8/S9, not off the air like it was
yesterday when WOR might have aired; Friday means Blalock the Blaster,
again very undermodulated: no one more deserving of that! But is this
transmitter about to die? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130.3, Nov 24 at 2313. WBCQ poorly audible direct with
music so unseems ATATT = all-T****-all-the-time; and yes, 7490 is AWOL
again so main programming probably transferred. Yes: at 0032 Nov 25
the `FKB` gospel huxter is on 5130+, tho normally preceding `AAAWWW`
on 7490 which is still off. Maryland SDR with correxion factor puts it
on 5130.414 at 0048.

At 0100 announcer reveals the following AAAWWW ``was originally
broadcast on Friday September 29, 2023`` --- WRONG! Content does not
match with my notes for the UT Sat Sept 30 program - sounds familiar
but obviously after the Oct 7 Hamas attack on Israel; and Angela is
obviously in the same studio, not remote (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7550-7555-7560, Nov 24 at 0809, DRM noise S9. Nothing at
all, DRM or AM, in Aoki & EiBi. HFCC has BULGARIA, wrong mode, wrong
time: 1700-2359, 250 kW AM at 110 degrees.

Does Spaceline even have DRM capability? HFCC by FMO inexplicably does
never specify N = DRM or D = NOT DRM:
https://new.hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=B23&fmor=SPC
This lists ``for new organization`` unspecified in 37 of the 48
entries, mostly wooden. Only others specified are 9 for Overcomer,
probably not all active; and 2 for Allan H Weiner = unactivated addons
really for wacko World`s Last Chance on 13850, 13840. Master HFCC B23
sked does show SPC with DRM on 5875, 15515. No 7555 entry here either:
https://www.drmrx.org/drm-broadcasts-shortwave-by-frequency/
I would not be surprised if it be another ISS test like logged a few
minutes later on 6005; see FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** 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.

** 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)
