** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Saturday Nov 18 at 1834, LRA36 is on,
S7/S9 into Argentine SDR, all talk about Esperanza, Antarctica; still
2030, 2124+. And 2325 still into a different ArgSDR, S6/S7 in music.
2358 still on via the first one as the second one had closed due to
storms. 0012 ID and historical info. 0016 intro a musical segment,
something about 1983 in New York? 0019 finally stops talking and
plays it. Still going at 0059 UT Sunday Nov 19. May also have been on
some weekdays but unsought this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21640+, Nov 17 at 1535, no signal direct from La Boulangère
MiniTransAt, but the other two 13m ISSouduns are on, 21485 & 21690.
Same Nov 18 at 1532. Is the sailboat race over, or was there something
starting at 1500 before I have been tuning? Check the website:
https://minitransat.fr/

The winner, Federico WAKSMAN from Uruguay, arrived at Guadeloupe
already on 10 November, and the 28th in last place on 17 November;
three more dropped out. So it`s over (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21485, Nov 17 at 1532, after finding no signal on 21640+
for MiniTransAt, this and 21690, the other two ISSouduns scheduled
this hour on 13m can be heard, confirming propagation is OK. But 21485
sounds ``stuttering``, some transmission problem, double feed?
At 1430-1600 it`s R. Tamazuj, targeting Sudan South (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** RUSSIA. Re my 7032 USB report of the Soviet Hymn, David Crawford
replies: ``gh, When I've heard this one on random occasion, it's
always been the Гимн России version by the group Любэ / "Lu-beh":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbJQbiu09z8

Here's another rather notorious song of theirs, "Don't be a Fool,
America!", in which they make it clear that they want Alaska back:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wuq1EE8ymc
I don't find that one as amusing as I used to.``

Of course once you go to YT, a bunch of other versions are suggested.
Most of the NAs get rave reviews as music, even from non-Communists.
Here`s an English version of the Soviet Hymn:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7pbnTI1_LM
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 18 at 2326, VOT not off the air in English,
VG S9+25/35 into UTwente ending multi-lingual ID filler reel; atop
CCCCCCI understation; music. 2331, `Gripping Piles`, on the
environmental disaster of wastewater leaking into the sea from Gaza.
I had not heard about that elsewhere. Then goes on to review the
conflict, emphasizing casualties caused by Israeli retaliation. 2334,
``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2339 `Turkey`s Geomarked [sic]
Products` on a small town in central Anatolia known for its handmade
carpets. 2342 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music. 2351 s/off again
by the badax with all-wrong A23 schedule, 2352 IS and off 2353*
uncovering Xinjiang (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday November 18 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+30/15 into Missouri
SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 18 at 1630 on WRMI 15770, immediately
after music stops, no ID break, S9/S7 into UTwente where it`s aimed,
sufficient but fading down before 1700. Way offbeam to a VE6JY remote
in Alberta, S9/S6 and holding up to conclusion.

Also confirmed Saturday November 18 at 1700, first airing on WRN
webcasts.

Also confirmed Saturday November 18 at 2029, on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
VG S9+18 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 18 at 2030, on WRMI webcast-only,
and WRN North America webcast.

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 19 at 0100 on WRMI 9955, S5/S8 and
fluttery into Argentine SDR. Next:

** U S A. Something`s really wrong at WBCQ: UT Nov 18, at 0050
preparing to check `AAAWWW`, 7490.061 is JBA S4/S5 into Maryland SDR,
instead of usual quite sufficient signal, during FKB gospel huxter.
6160 -68 Hz = 6159.932 is VG S9+12 with something else as usual.
Sounds like a g.h. rather than `Cruisin Radio` as in the program
guide. 5130.302 is S9+12, T**** and a het. Nothing on 3265+. So to
hear AAAWWW I have to bring up the `7490` stream, but it stops at
0100* and remains Unfound the rest of the evening whenever I check!

So I have to strain to hear them via remotes. At 0100, 7490 no William
Tell Overture theme audible; 5130+ still with T****; 6160- dead air.
By 0104 on 7490 I hear some other music, for `Chariots of Fire`. At
0108 can recognize Allan`s voice but unreadable. NH SDR is no better,
S6 but JBA. I give up, but ask Larry Will what`s going on? His reply
at 0146 after finishing Free Radio Weekly:

``Hello Glenn, I noticed the multiple anomalies on WBCQ tonight; I
have no idea what is going on but am checking it out now. Al's
Florida relay webcast started at 0100 with the AWWWWW theme song, but
suddenly went dead air less than a minute in, then played a bit of
what sounded like a newscast, then dropped off. 7490 no signal, 6160
open carrier/dead air, 5130 trump blather. 7490 webcast was down at
0100, back at 0110 with a repeat from May. Lw`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5085 & 9475, WTWW update from George McClintock at 2015 UT
November 18: 5085 dropped off the air last night but soon restored,
#2 transmitter, still scheduled 22-04 UT. Can`t get 9475 to stay on
despite a couple of brief tests. May have Continental guy back late
Nov/early Dec for 4 days to work on that, Al from the Philippines, now
retired in Dallas, first language not English. Depends on when some
more parts arrive. One shipment came two days ago. Mechanical, not
electronic parts are needed. George has been cleaning up #2 and
labeling #1. #1 is beyond filthy, looks like cat crapped in it, unID
white stuff. Biermann is handling all the programming and has some
client prospects for 9475 once it`s operational. Still uncertain
whether going to be sold. Neighboring property reclassified as
commercial or agricultural, and to be combined with WTWW property if
sold. George hopes WTWW will survive as a SW station (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9442.4816, quite steady, Nov 17 at 2138, R. Cairo, S9+25
into UTwente and JBM in presumed English. First I found it S4/S5
direct at 2118 on 9442.5 approx., trace maybe of mod and no sig on
9440! Something`s amiss at Abis; a different transmitter than the one
on 9439.995? Has been reported before on 9442, DX Fanzine:

``9442 22.10.23 2115-2125 EGY R.Cairo, Abis, EE: crash start on odd
freq, QRM from VO Korea in CC on 9445 kHz. 52442 PR = Rumen Pankov,
Sofia, (Bulgaria). RX: Sony ICF2001D. ANT rod for MW, Folded Marconi
antenna 16 meters long for SW`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598 USB, Nov 17 at 0742 UT, YL with marine weather
in English, JBA vs local line noise. DXinfocentre.com shows this the
first 2598 broadcast of the local day from 0737 UT, VCP-4, 3000 watts
from Placentia, which is on the west side of the SE peninsula. Nothing
at this time on 2749, altho closer 550-watt VCO Sydney NS is supposed
to start at 0740 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 7032 USB, Nov 17 at 0508-0530+, jazzed-up choral version of
the Soviet Hymn = Russian national anthem, played over and over in a
loop with brief pauses, every 3 minutes and 28 seconds. S8/S9 into
UTwente; did not try direct. Tnx to tip from Volodya Salmaniw, BC on
the WOR iog, Nov 17:

``[WOR] 7032 USB --- The Russian station with the loop of the Russian
anthem has been very strong for a few nights now into Masset.
Listening now at 0457 UT. I tried a TDoA last night which placed the
transmitter near St Petersburg, Russia. 73, Walt`` These have been
going on for many months, also on several other SW frequencies;
presumably to bolster patriotism while waging genocidal war against
Ukraine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 17 at 2300, VG direct with some fades, token
English from SNR; main news about Sánchez finally able to form a new
government. Palestine situation news including analysis from Beirut
correspondent. 169 evacuated ``Spanish Palestinians`` have arrived.
Feature following about an institute founded by American missionaries
to promote higher education for females (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 17 at 2300, VOT totally inaudible direct vs
high line noise level; 2324 via UTwente at S9+25/35, S9+15/20 into
Maryland, during multi-lingual ID filler reel, music. 2329 `Feeling
Supreme/The Healing Spring` but missed topic. 2336
``always-by-your-side`` promo, `Did You Know That` repeat about the
Angora rabbit. 2341 ``with you every hour`` promo, music. 2345
``a-b-y-s`` promo again! and music. 2350 s/off by the badax, and
reciting the now totally wrong A23 schedule for four other English
broadcasts: all times wrong, all frequencies wrong! 2351 IS; 2357 one
German? ID inserted but soon chopped off* uncovering the understation
CCCCCCI. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 329 MCW kHz, Nov 17 at 0736, PMV, ND beacon is JB readable
despite line noise level on LW of S9; unlike any others in bandscan,
not even local 341 EI. PMV is 25 watts from Plattsmouth, NE. That`s
just south of Omaha where the combined N&S Platte Rivers flow into the
Missouri (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: confirmed Friday
November 17 at 2140 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9/S8
into UTwente remote, reaching across Europe, no need to check nearby
Noale SDR as usual. NO co-channel QRM and quite readable with some
fades; ACI splash from S9+10 Spanish on 1314, i.e. three RNE Radio 5
synchros of 25 +10 + 10 = 45 kW. Also confirmed at same time almost
synchro on WRMI webcast only.

Also confirmed Friday November 17 at 2322 the 2300 on WRMI 9955, S8/S9
into Maryland SDR above JBA pulse jamming; the first SWBC of the new
cycle. Next:

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 16 at 0438, RHC S9+20/30 but JBM allegedly in
English. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``READ TODAY THE CUBA OF TOMORROW November 7, 2023
UPR: UNIVERSAL PERIODIC REVIEW --- What is the UN Universal Periodic
Review and how will the Cuban regime fare?
The Review is a process that allows states to improve their human

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7570, Nov 16 at 0440, TOMBS via WRMI mixing
with another TOMBS, double feed maybe same thing a few sex apart until
one of him quits. Something`s always wacko at Walterboro (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490+, Nov 16 at 0443, new offset+plus signature of WBCQ,
but JBA direct, much weaker than normal. These two factors lead me to
suspect it`s a backup transmitter in the wake of main unit failure and
off the air for a few days (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2217)

** U S A. 7505, Nov 16 at 0439, WRNO is S9+30/40 direct in presumed
Hindi; why should Hindi-speakers be Christians instead of Hindus? Or
maybe they should become Jews? Certainly back on the air, for now
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2217)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re: "... 610, Nov 15 at 0657 UT, Mexmx unusual...GA and
OR, both unlikely..." Greg Hardison replies:

``I dunno. WPLO/"La Bonita" was pretty clearly heard in the 610 mess
on a West Virginia remote last night (Nov 16 UTC). Seems they could be
cheating, and the signal usually gets out around the East fairly well
anyway. If you hear any sporadic "La Bonita"s, that should cinch it``

** EAST TURKISTAN. Xinjiang PBS reported by Dr Hj Biener to have
resumed its lower 60ish mb winter frequencies, so I make my annual
check of them shortly after sign-on circa local sunrise when it`s
grayline to me circa local sunset, Nov 15 {not 14 as in original
report} at 0040 UT:
5060, JBA Chinese, a bit stronger of course than the rest:
4980, JBA algo, Uyghur service
4850, JBA algo, Kazakh service
4500, JBA carrier, Mongolian service, vs CODAR
With nothing further identifiable, this quartet make it obvious
whence.

Ron Howard got the new schedule as of Nov 14 from Hiroshi, sign-on
times:
5060, 2310- 4980, 2310- 4850, 2315- 4500, 2315-
Current Aoki:
5060, 2310- 4980, 2315- 4850, 2315- 4500, 2315-
EiBi has nothing anywhere on all four frequencies. Anyway, all should
be on by 2315. All of them have several higher frequencies, and the
lower ones again in the local evening, impossibly midday here.

Gaisma.com shows today`s Nov 15 sunrise at Urumqi, ``China``: 0103-
UT. In a bimonth will be near its latest, 0141-, i.e. 9:41 am by local
clock required to be on Beijing time of UT+8 rather than when it
should be, UT+6. Due to imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs
and other Moslems.

WRTH 2023 dispenses with any sked info and lists all four not at
Urumqi, but ``Changji``! Is that the same as Changzhi in gaisma.com?
But that`s way off in east China near Beijing.

Mauno Ritola replies: ``Changji is at 43 58.5N 87 15E, 35 km
east-southeast of the FS and MW site, so clearly a separate site. Best
regards, Mauno`` i.e. near Urumqi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Re 1520, KOKC allegedly back to 50 kW DA-N:
Mike Beu at 0144 Nov 15: ``Hey Glenn: Interesting info about KOKC
antenna pattern change - definitely weaker down south in Austin, Texas
- easier now to DX the channel. KRHW Sikeston, MO with C&W music is
frequently audible under KOKC including now at 0144 UTC, here in
Austin. Receiving Equipment: Drake R8B, Terminated Delta (17ft apex
and 28ft base) -, northeast, Mini-Flag (7ft by 15ft) - southeast.
Pennant (14ft by 29ft) - southeast. 73, Mike Beu, KD5DSQ, Austin,
Texas``

And on the WOR iog in EST: ``1520 KOKC OK Oklahoma City 11/14, 2330
{0430 UT Nov 15}. Chad Benson talk program, in and out, over/under
co-channel QRM. Man at 2359. "KOKC...95 point 3 and 15-20 AM".
Stronger signal than we usually get here post-tornado, but not really
as strong as pre-tornado. A hard call to make, this listening session,
if they really at full power. Monitored on Grundig Satellit 205 and
internal loop. -- Rick Barton-AZ``

>From IRCA iog Nov 14: ``Last night and this morning KOKC 1520 did not
appear to be back to normal. Weak signal compared to what it was
before the tornado took down towers. -- John Johnson DXing from Mesa,
Arizona, SDRplay RSPduo, Wellbrook ALA1530LNP``

Not confirmed Wednesday November 15 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490v; at first no

Also confirmed on at 0048 November 16 about 7490.06 direct on the plus

LANGUAGE LESSONS

``Anti-Semitism`` and ``Islamophobia`` are being treated under current
circumstances as equivalent and certainly both to be condemned. But
they are not equivalent. Islamophobia means *fear* of Islam, so should
there be a corresponding way to say fear of Judaism? Or are we really
trying to talk about hate, not fear. In the latter case, an
appropriate Latinate construxion would be Islamodium. But what about
the other? Anti-Semitism has always been problematic, but is so
ingrained that we are unlikely to get rid of the term. You see, both
most Jews and Arabs are Semitic, so it`s nonsensical to apply it only
to Jews. How about Judodium to go with Islamodium? (Glenn Hauser, WOR)
