Saturday, November 19 2022

Hauser
** ALGERIA. 17600, Nov 19 at 1642, TDA via own Béchar site as used for
extensive hours, really wailing now, S7/S9, presumed Arabic, and maybe
nothing to do with Qur`an? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Nov 19, I am not awake and booted
until 1510 first check for LRA36, but nothing into Argentine SDR,
where I see Gary Pence, KM5X in Dallas, Texas, and someone in London
are already on it. I go back to sleep until next chex at 1559 and
1614, still nothing.

But RNASG had been on just before and crashed, as Gary tells me, ``LRA
36 prelog music just before 1500. Hi Glenn, after initial sign on, the
usual abrupt cut off at 1507. They will probably be back, I guess.``
Anyhow, it would have been replay of what we already heard on
Wednesday Nov 16. ``No, they never came back. After the pre music
finished, then an OM gave the first LRA36 ID, then abruptly went off
around 1510z, and that was all she wrote`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 19 at 0752 tune-in to JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, just before it cuts off the air at 0752.4* - what luck!
Nothing else audible on 9/kHz splits in quick scan, not even 1017 or
1098 Pacificans. The previous night, Nov 18, Gary Pence told me:

``Hi Glenn, about 0415z had a JBA on 846 but now at 0835z they are
gone; but there is one on 1440 kHz on AI6VN/KH6 in Maui and there is
way too much local QRM to receive. It`s on NH6XO site [Oahu]. Maybe
this is Tarawa. 73,s Gary`` Closest HI is on 1420 in Honolu2 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13755, Nov 19 at 0732, RNZ Pacific achieves S9/+10
during Saturday Night music, and is the OSOB = only signal on band; we
are the mercy of MUF at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Sat Nov 19 at 1648, REE can muster no more than a JBA
carrier direct to deep N America on early weekend schedule. Should be
still on 17855 for starters. But they waste countless hours
play-by-playing stupid ballgames (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH. Plans for a new gospel-huxter SW station: see USA:
WBCQ: AAAWWW

** U K [and non]. 21630, Nov 19 at 1640, S3/S5 BBCWS via ASCENSION //
Woofferton 17830, covering some stupid ballgame. If you were expecting
world news to be primary on BBC, forget it for a month, as extensive
coverage of some tournament is planned. Mike Cooper has obtained a
long schedule of pre-emptions, adjustments to regular programming for
the duration (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday
November 19 at 0152 the 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG direct, S9/+20 into KFS
omni remote. But not even a JBA carrier from 15770 direct, nor into
MD, MO or CA remotes, so off or unpropagable. Nor 7730 which it
replaced, only channel still missing since hurricane Ian.

Also confirmed UT Saturday November 19 at 0500 on WBCQ Radio Angela,
5130 minus 13 Hz = 5129.987, at first via Maryland remote unusually
JBA, S1/S2. At 0506, better S4/S7 into New Hampshire remote which one
would have suspected too close to Monticello, where the precise
measurement was made. Both with intermittent QRM from 2-way in Spanish
on 5132 USB, not LSB.

Also confirmed Saturday November 19 at 1700 on WRN N America stream.

Too late for this week, but Wolfgang Bueschel reports hearing WOR at a
new time on WRMI: Friday Nov 18 at 0830 on 5010; however the skedgrid
dated Nov 18 shows 5850 & 7780 instead at 0830 Friday, unchecked yet
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Another update early UT Nov 19 from George McClintock,
president of WTWW, on the phone. He has inspected the facility further
and concluded that the transmitters are in such bad shape that they
cannot be put back on air at anywhere near full power without a lot of
replacement parts which are harder and harder to find. So now
permanently off the air, and officially for sale, price to be
determined (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, UT Sat Nov 19 from 0100, WBCQ direct for `AAAWWW`,
but instead of theme, starts with intros to two OTR shows: Lux Radio
Theatre, and Father Knows Best! 0102 finally `William Tell Overture`
theme and AAAWWW. AW later admits he screwed up. Usual opening fawning
over how beautiful he thinx his wife is. The are in Deland of Fla
where it`s wintry at 60 degrees.

Shortly 0106 phone call from William Levi who is from South Sudan,
discussing his plans for a new SW missionary station. He has visited
Monticello. US HQ are in western Massachusetts. They had an FM station
2003-2008 in the war zone; not clear if still on now, but want to go
on SW for better coverage, from family property, with a 300` tower for
a non-direxional monopole antenna, 2000 km range, 10 kW transmitter
powered by 40 solar panels, as there is no grid power; or maybe wind
turbines. Frequency to be 11950 kHz, ``Nehemiah Trumpet Call shortwave
station``. A Christian firm in S Korea is providing transmitter and
antenna. It`s a non-profit, wants donations to: Operation Nehemiah
Missions, at a PO Box in Lanesborough MA 01237 - glad I looked that up
for correct spellinge; in the NW corner of MA. See
www.operations.nehemiah.org You`d never know it from the interview,
but they are Messianic Jews, preferred deity monicker Yeshua. Levi was
higher-educated in the USA but speaks with a presumably Sudanese
accent.

This took until 0119.5. By 0121 it`s into politix, claiming that Pres.
Biden is a ``senile puppet damaging the country``, blind to the
terrible damage to democracy caused by their despicable hero T****.
They are glad that Pelosi and the ``demonicrats`` lose control of
House. Later admitting that even Republicans are not perfect.

Says work on the WBCQ-6 SuperStition antenna is now completely
finished, and by mid-winter expect to be up to maximum ERP. I guess
that would be February; if it`s finished, why wait? 0134 datestamp as
18 November YOOLF 2022, trimulcasting on 7490, 6160, 5130. By 0140,
7490- is fading down, so 6160- and 5130- are slightly better direct.
Hey, WORLD OF RADIO is already running on WRMI bigsig 5850! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sat Nov 19 at 1800, WWCR-2 with `Talking [sic]
Machine Show`, songs familiar from ancient recordings, seems a rerun.
VG direct, but dumps off air circa 1818, cuts back on at 1823 after I
have brought up the stream instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my 640 kHz BIN log, Greg Hardison explains the strange
addresses: ``"...Benton TN for WBIN, Ada MI for WMFN..." WBIN was the
call sign for a former Benton, TN facility on 1540, which remanded its
license back to the FCC a few years ago; Radio-Locator.com has yet to
catch up to this. The modern WBIN/640 is the former WGST, which I'd
bet is still control-roomed from iHeart's Atlanta digs, somewhere on
Peachtree near Piedmont Hospital. Ada, I believe, is the original home
of WMFN?/640, which was moved to the flats between Chicago and
Kankakee, determined to be a better location for serving Chicagoland
whilst a "full" 30 kHz away from WSCR/670. And there again, R-L drags
past glories into the present.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Nov 19 at 0730, JBA carrier from R Vanuatu X 3 but
not on X 2 = 7890 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report despatched at 1932 UT November 19

Hauser
** CANADA. 346 MCW kHz, Nov 18 at 0744 UT, dash and YXL, 500-watt ND
beacon at Sioux Lookout ON, a regular but not always. I was tuned to
345 USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 9765, Nov 18 at 2154, seeking any music, a rarity on SW
after giving up on VOA q.v. 11720 caught in a loop, I find some gospel
harmonies here from MWV with a choppy signal; 2156 Palavra Alegre ID
in hyper-Brazuguese; 2159 dead air; 2200 more of same starting with
singing, 2203 stuff about Jesus [zhe-ZOO-ish]. At 2157 had given
address in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, but the website
https://palavraalegre.com.br/ omits any city, just the box and postal
code! I guess that`s enough, but why? Yes, now has a double-hour to
Brasil. Next stop for music, WBCQ, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 740-, Nov 18 at 0755 UT, rumbling het on the low
side against KRMG/CFZM/whatever, presumed longtime offfrequencier
XEQN, Torreón, Coahuila. The major stations produce a SAH of 56/minute
= almost 1 Hz. What does MWoffsets show? Lax any entry for XEQN! I
should try to refine it at a better opportunity; used to be worst
around sunrise, powering up from 1 to 10 kW. Does show CFZM 0.1 Hz low
and KRMG 1.0 Hz high (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Nov 18 at 0723, RHC still on with dead air except for
hum, S8/9+10, and also weaker S8/S9 6100 with same hum. Is English now
supposed to repeat until 0800, or 0700? No other RHC frequencies on,
and Rebelde 5025 remains absent always. Something`s always wrong at
RHC, RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 5010, UT Friday Nov 18, into Maryland SDR, WRMI again
with secret R. República in Spanish, topic: derechos de trabajo, like
for 3 hours before. Would not be surprised if a single hour about this
be repeated over & over (Glenn Hauer, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 18 at 0725, S7/S8 open carrier, presumably VON
with usual offset-minus; a bit late now but maybe on for a sesquihour
since 0555 or so tonight? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6969 USB, Nov 18 at 2229, my fourth stop for music
after WBCQ finds one pirate active now with rockish music, S5/S7;
2231.5 maybe an ID under the dense music? 2236 clearer announcement,
``You are listening to --- clock? Radio --- Radio 69 --- on the
dial``; more logs here first as unID,
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,105509.0.html
then ``Infected Mushroom Head Radio International`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Nov 18 at 2258-2259*, BBCWS English alone
via OMAN. No VOT IS, but cuts on circa *2300 but also with heavy SAH
from another open carrier. Usual sign on and news heavy on Erdogan
doings, but at 2303 CCCCCCI starts = Chinese Communist Chinese language
co-channel interference. This time it` strong enough to make listening
to TRT too distracting. 2330 I switch to Maryland remote after token
English from Spain is over, and thus VOT Turkish music is now
QRM-free, 2332 `Feeling Supreme` on alleged benefits of St. John`s
Wort. Later a `DYKT` segment I don`t try to understand. 2353 quick
s/off, ``you`ve been listening to the 1230-1330 UTC broadcast on 12035
kHz`` -- NO, We have not! Something`s always awry at Ankara. IS then
plays, past 2355 when GERMAN IDs start to be inserted --- but only
once, whew, before cutoff. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 420 MCW kHz, Nov 18 at 0742 UT, PK, 25-watt ND beacon at
Olathe/Herbb KS, just barely enough to the edge of the persistent high
local neighborhood noise level peaking at 390 but obscuring
everything between 360 and 420, including another Kansan, 395 CA.

347 MCW kHz, Nov 18 at 0743 UT, AFK, 25-watt NDB at Nebraska City NE
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Fri Nov 18 at 2149, VOA Grimesland VG S9+30 off the
back toward Africa; during B-seasons, dentro-Americans luck out with
an hour of mostly music on VOA from our domestic site rather than
15580 Botswana - should include `Music Time in Africa` on Fridays, but
instead, it`s a 39-second loop repeating over and over theme music of
orchestral variations on ``Yankee Doodle, V-O-A``. Still going 5
minutes later, and I bet for the rest of the hour after and before:
more messupping at VOA. Is no one paying attention at Grimesland, or
Washington? In the past the MTIA hostess seemed unaware of this
transmission. I was searching for some music -- any music -- on SW to
accompany my nap and override thru earphones a TV set nearby.
Continued at MADAGASCAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 contents: Antarctica,
Bangladesh and non, Canada, China, Cuba [WTFK? 10080] and non, East
Turkistan, (Germany), (Indonesia), International Vacuum, Japan,
Kaliningrad, Korea South, Maldives non [WTFK? 11620], México, New

Confirmed first SWBC UT Friday November 18 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, JBA
carrier direct; VP into TX, LA SDRs closer to alleged SW azimuth, much
better into Maryland SDR way off the beam.

Also confirmed Friday November 18 at 1530 on WRMI 9955, S8/9+10
direct, no jamming audible.

Also confirmed Friday November 18 at 2130 on NEXUS-IBA IRRS SW via AM
Italia, Villa Estense, 1323 kHz, S9+5/18 into nearby Noale SDR with
hardly any QRM, following a country music show. Next:

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130 minus only 7 Hz = 5129.993, UT Friday Nov 18 at 0400,
good into Maryland SDR, WBCQ Radio Angela with première of a new
monthly hour, `Hobby Broadcasting Radio`, admittedly really about
pirates, with Andy Yoder, longtime pirate enthusiast. Says this will
be monthly on third Thursday at 11 pm ET/0400-0500 UT, so next one
will be Dec 15/16. News about this from UB came at very short notice,
but I do mention it on WOR 2165, only the first SW airing of which
happened to precede it immediately at 0330. After musing about how he
is going to do the show, most of this is phone conversation with
another pirate enthusiast, Brian Penney, columnist for NASWA Journal,
with lots of clips of recent Hallowe`en and archived piratecasts
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 9330+, Fri Nov 18 at 0731, WBCQ WLCR slightly
off+plus conveniently, coincidentally? in Spanish, at about equal
level to CUBAn Spy Numbers, including uteblaaps, making LAH = low
audible heterodyne. A longtime collision between these stubborn
stations, neither worth listening to, but some recipient spies maybe
get misled, overtaken, converted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Fri Nov 18 at 2205, my third stop for some music
after Madagascar, q.v., is WBCQ during `Behaviour Night` of ancient
recordings. I don`t often hear this as timing is inconvenient. Now
reception direct is not so good, fading and noise on top of the
original lo-fi music; but it improves gradually to 2229 when I check
for pirates, see NORTH AMERICA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 630, Nov 18 at 0750 UT, classical piano music catches my ear
- but then it`s only an hymn, what a letdown. Likely KYFI St Louis,
tho there is another REL in San Antonio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 640, Nov 18 at 0752 UT, BIN and Black Information Network
often mentioned in news items about Michigan, Georgia, rather than the
usual dominators here, KFI and KWPN OK. Also binnews.com promos.
Mostly in ``standard`` English, not obvious ``Black`` accents. NRC AM
Log and https://www.binnews.com/stations/ agree their two 640s are for
Atlanta and Chicago. BIN site dispenses with callsigns and cities of
license. On the E/W longwire, so I should have DFed to tell which, or
stayed for ToH legal ID, but by then I`m occupied with 1130, q.v. WBIN
Atlanta is U4 50000/1000 watts; WMFN Pentone IL is U4 4400/1600 watts.
No echo so likely only one of them. WMFN has a sufficient lobe
thisaway,
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WMFN&service=AM&h=N
but major lobe is N toward Milwaukee and Lake Michigan. WBIN is almost
ND circular, slightly squished N/S oval:
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WBIN&service=AM&h=N
HQ appears to be Southfield/Detroit MI, but r-l has an address in
Benton TN for WBIN, Ada MI for WMFN. BIN website displays no HQ
physical, postal address or location (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, Nov 18 at 0759, rock music dominant I always assume be
cheating KLEY Wellington KS, supposed to run ONE WATT at night, so we
can`t call it a daytimer, likely really full power 250 watts. Hardly
anything from 50 kW KWKH which beams west from Shreveport. I keep
listening for a definite ID as music runs thru hourtop, till finally
at 0803 UT a quick canned multi-station ID with no frequencies,
including some FM translators, and KLEY Wellington, KKLE Winfield,
both Kansas and sibling stations but supposedly totally separate
programming from same studio. Both are in groundwave range, but I have
not heard KKLE 1550 in a long time, day or night; and not now either,
some other music on not // 1550 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890 & 11835, Nov 18 at 0721, no signals from the RV
harmonix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-oceanic JBA split MW carrier search, Nov 18 at
0736: 1098-2, with a slow beat circa 1 Hz, again suspected one of them
V7AB MARSHALL ISLANDS, and/or Spain. What else? 1017, 711, 621, but no
846 Kiritimati. 711 & 621 correlate with Morocco & Canary close to
sunrise; 1017 I would like to be 10 kW A3Z, TONGA, already a
sesquihour after 0601 UT sunset; otherwise only two 10-kW Spaniards,
while bigger ones over there like 684 are not audible. BTW, it`s
pronounced Tong-a, not Tong-ga (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9664.964, Nov 17 at 0638, Brazuguese, hymns, S4/S5 from
RVM, almost on frequency! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6000, Nov 17 at 0635, only RHC English on air,
S9+20 undermodulated but sufficient. 6165 is also on but Spanish!
S9/+10 with ACI from 6160- WBCQ. Another season of these being too
neighborly. The Other Side:

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Nov 17 t 0642, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati; also
several TA carriers, see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 17730, Nov 17 at 1612, JBM talk at S6/S8, listed as AWR
in MARathi, spoken by 72 megaIndians in Maharashtra but must be
straining to hear this if at all. Is no one paying attention at
Talata? 250 kW at 45 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 17 at 0629, still no VON (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ROMANIA. 7345, Nov 17 at 0632, RRI English news, S9+20, competing
with BBC 7285; this is 300 kW, 307 degrees from Tsiganeshti for W
Europe but here we are directly beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 7285+, Nov 17 at 0630, BBC news headlines in English,
sufficient S9+10 as long as hams avoid it; off-frequency, of course
via USAGM SAO TOME, 100 kW at 335 degrees favorable for us at
0600-0700. Previous hour 05-06 also BBC via Ascension; 04-05 is Turkey
in English; 03-04 BBC via Oman (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2146 monitoring: 9395 kHz, usual

UTC 2022 [Thu] (Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Confirmed here November 17 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9/+10 into Maryland

** VANUATU. 5040, Nov 17 at 0628, JBA carrier presumed R. Vanuatu, yet
stronger than 5020, presumed Solomons; again with no Cubans in the
way; and also nothing on RV`s alternate before 0700, 7260 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0135 UT November 18

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA split MW carrier search, Nov 17 at
0642-0644: 684, 837, 855-2, 1098-2, 1107, 1152, 1305-2. Mostly Spain,
but 1098 is interesting: could be two medium-power Spains, but this is
just past sunset at Majuro, Marshall Islands, 25 kW V7AB. BTW,
gaisma.com fails to include the capital Majuro among numerous
localities in the MI; but timeanddate.com finds it (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

B22 SEASON SW SCHEDULES

A variety of sources and formats are now linked from the WOR homepage;
click on B22 at
http://www.worldofradio.com
Some of them have not yet been updated, notably bclnews.it due to the
death of Roberto Scaglione last summer amid the A22 season.

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wed Nov 16 at 1459, tune-in LRA36 via
Argentine SDR, song is playing at S6/S7; 1503 sign-on, multi-lingual
ID, staff names; 1504 themesong; 1508 recitation about Belgrano bases
1 and 2; 1510 song; 1513.5 ``nos une`` ID and live YLs for the 31st
program of the Esperanza Audaz season, miércoles 17 de noviembre;
mentions Mundial, imminent SBG; current conditions, 4 degrees, cloudy,
9 kph winds; SR/SS approx. 3 am/10 pm local. There is now a
``penumbra``, not totally dark overnight. They see lights from a lot
of excursions, cruise ships. 1519 contact info, this-week-in-history,
song; 1525 ``su cía`` ID; 1526 more about history of Belgrano bases;
1531 someone on phone, or rather picked up off speakerphone, bad
audio; 1545 song; 1547 connexion to SDR lost, so I find another with
worse reception; 1555 something about magnetic field, ionosphere; 1556
my attention switches to a rare SAQ 17.2 kHz CW transmission, with
great YT coverage! 1608 music, ``nos une`` ID. YL talk continues but
stops abruptly at 1616, and nothing more for 5+ minutes (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 6180, Nov 16 at 0754, Brazuguese at S9/+10 and seems // JBA
11780, so RNA apparently just came on before 5 am local (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. This item caught my eye, from Harold Frodge at
another MARE DXpedition, Brighton, Michigan: ``5010 Radio
República via WRMI; 0442, 11/12; ID & SS rlgn & talk re Cubanos.
SIO=453+ (Frodge-DXP)``

That was UT Saturday. I was unaware of this transmission, and
rechecking the WRMI Programming page and skedgrids, there is NO
mention of R.R. at all, strangely enough, just some vague broadcasts
to Cuba via France on 9490. A few weeks ago, there was also a R.R. on
WRMI itself, 5800 at 03-04, but it soon disappeared from the website
and the air.

The transmission grid for WRMI-14, 5010, 181 degrees to Caribbean,
does show System C at 03-06; but nonesuch in the C program grid,
just contradictorily, R. Liberty in Russian at 04-05 on 15770!

Now the 9490 emissions are shown as 01-02 UT on Tue/Wed/Thu; 01-04 UT
on Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon. This is Wed, so 9490 is already off.

5010, Wed Nov 16 at 0344, via TWR Bonaire SDR at S7/9+10 with NO
jamming, I`m tuning in early to check out HF`s report: and find R.R.
is already on air so probably started at 0300 if not even earlier. I
keep monitoring as the only topic at great length seems to be derechos
de trabajo = workers` rights, as if this were Labor Day. As I tuned in
they were quoting Jorge Mas Canosa, and some lemas. Break for WRMI ID
at 0359, and more; still going past 0432. 0439 announces sked for 9490
only. 0443 besides the directorio.org main website, refers to another
site for audio, www.radiorepublica.us Still going past 0500; 0556 says
has been about workers` education, sked again for 9490 only; 0559 WRMI
Spanish ID and 0600 finally switch to The Overcomer Ministry Brother
Stair - TOMBS. Like 9490, the span of this may vary from day to day.

So it appears WRMI is repeating earlier broadcasts on 9490, maybe not
even same date, as this was at least three hours long, while only one
hour was originally scheduled for this day. Nothing about 5010 on air
or on website no doubt has delayed Cuban jamming from attacking it.
Meanwhile the dentroCubans are still absent from 5025 & 5040 - which
BTW could theoretically produce a leapfrog mixing product interfering
with WRMI on 5010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Nov 16 at 2150, S9+15/30 of humwhine only, no
programod in English from R. Cairo; kudos however for consistent
frequency precision at minus 5 Hz! Something`s always egregious in
Egypt, abysmal at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Nov 16 at 2310, token English from REE VG S9+15/30
into Maryland SDR, Coe interview about flamenco performances; 2325
correspondent from Beirut who seems to be a regular. All others on,
weaker but sufficient, 12030 > 11940 > 11685 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Nov 16 at 2310, NO signal from VOT English into
UTwente, only imperial Chinese from East Turkistan, standard
denunciation; into Maryland at 2330 check, not even that (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening

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

** VANUATU. 7890, Nov 16 at 0738, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu X 2, but
nothing audible on X 3 = 11835. Manuel Méndez, Spain, was hearing
11835 direct today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, Nov 16 at 0755, JBA carrier, probably Radio 4KZ,
Queensland, about equal to 5020 presumed Solomons. No Cubans, WTWW or
anything else above 5010 WRMI to distract (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
