Hauser
** CHINA [and non]. 11590, Nov 15 at 1613, Firedragon jamming I`ve not
run across in a longtime, about equal level to Chinese talk, which is
RFA via TINIAN at 16-19; also 15-16 via Kuwait (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Nov 15 at 0724, S9/+10 open carrier, only RHC remnant
on this or any band, not 10080 either = 2 x 5040 which I forgot to
recheck Nov 14. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13767, 13834, 13633, 13566 approx., Nov 15 at 1604, extremely
distorted FMish spurblobs out of RHC 13700 AM which is S8/9+10,
intervals of about 67 kHz. Outer ones much weaker, and the lowest
QRMing CODAR. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauserr, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13606 approx., Nov 15 at 2220, RHC spurblob FMish with F#
tone, extremely distorted talk, would make a better jammer than mere
noise if Martí were still on 13605! Obviously out of clear AM
13740 transmitter amid all the others I then find to 2227, same
unit no doubt as in mornings out of 13700. They are all broad and hard
to pinpoint, so I try to pick where the FM be loudest: 13673, 13808,
13877, 13948, 14008; 13534, 13467; some approx. intervals of 67-68
kHz. Note, so bad that extends into 20m hamband: that ought to get
attn of intruder-watchers. Could be yet another circa 14075, but a
huge digital hamblob already there. The lowest two QRM with CODAR.
Innocent 13680 AM RHC is also on. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9535, Nov 15 at 2213, RHC Spanish ID, S9/+10 but JBM. I check
some others: 9710 a little better, S9+30/40; 11850 at 2218 S9+5/25 but
suptorted to JBM. No signals on 15370 or 15730. Also patrolled all
bands 5 to 17 MHz for any RHC English: nowhere, including ex-11880.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Nov 15 at 2212, R. Cairo S8/S9 of dead air with
whine, no programod. Something`s always egregious in Egypt - not only
this but horrible dictatorship vs human rights, so we shouldn`t be too
sad they can`t propagandize (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15680, Nov 15 at 2228, S9 of some chanty music; 2229 dead
air; 2230 AWR theme, KSDA ID in English, next in Indonesian. 2200
listed as in ``NJ Ngaju Dayak: Indonesia-Borneo (0.9m) [nij]`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 15 at 0735 at first nothing, then JBA
carrier from R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI [non]. 5995, Nov 15 at 0723, JBA carrier. By now presumably
Echo of Hope, VOH from S to N Korea, its jumparound channel this week?
Not checked earlier, as ORTM used to dominate from 0600 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 15 at 0733, no signal from VON (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.018, Nov 15 at 2220, VOT English is S9+40 into UTwente
but undermodulated and hummy vs CCCCCCI undercurrent (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 7520, Nov 15 at 2230, VP S5/S8 English headlines, sounds
like BBC. Yes, this hour only via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES for
Indonesia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
November 15 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, JBA into Maryland SDR but S9/+5 into
Missouri SDR. BTW at 0303 recheck all three 9 MHz frequencies appeared
to be off. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

** U S A. In a phone conversation early UT Nov 15, George McClintock
explains what`s going on with WTWW; from my scribbled notes reflecting
his POV:

Ted Randall is definitely out of the picture. He does not and never
has had any ownership in Leap Of Faith, licensee of WTWW, despite the
entry as such in Wikipedia. Ted can do whatever he wants elsewhere,
but can`t call it WTWW. George is on the books as head of LOF, but in
effect had sold his interest to Scriptures for America, the defacto
owner.

He has been to the transmitter site and finds it quite in disarray.
Both transmitters had been operated with their doors open, which is a
no-no, perhaps accounting for splatter. Neither would work until he
fiddled with them, finally got them on for brief low-power ~5 kW
tests. Cooling water was discolored, dirty. About half the modulation
cards missing from each. Tuning to 9 MHz band done incorrectly.

Plans to get WTWW back on air with SFA on one transmitter, variety of
preachers on the other, but no music.

Meanwhile, `WRMI Legends` has appeared in scattered areas of the WRMI
program schedule, no doubt Ted Randall`s stuff. Not clear if these
will axually start Nov 15, and there may be further adjustments:

On the transmission grid, UT, System, Xmtr#, Frequency:
22-23 G 6 9395
23-24 L 8 5950
23-24 L 5 9455
00-01 C 5 9455

On the more detailed programming grid, only the first matching above:
23-24 L 5950 daily
02-03 F 5850 7730 15770 Sunday
03-04 G 9395 Mon Tue Thu Fri Sun

Ted still controls the WTWW.us website, but which is now referring to
WRMI Legends ``live nightly on WRMI soon``.

Later: yes, there`s Ted Nov 15 at 2209 on S9+30/40 WRMI 9395 after
disco music, ``we`re back, WRMI Legends``, then Atlas Weather with
Erika Walters centred on Miami, but also diverse spots like Escanaba.
Does this sorta replace BBB`s `Oldies` filler? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Nov 15 at 0729, JJBBA carrier, but none audible on
11835, harmonix of RV 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2326 UT November 16

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 14 at 0646, music on RHC English still on air,
S9+20/30, // 6060 S9+10 but louder, and // 6165 S4/S8 undermodulated
JBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13568, 13634, 13766, 13832, all approx., Nov 14 at 1601,
extremely distorted first- and second-order FMish spurblobs at ~66 kHz
intervals from still on at S6/S9, 13700 AM; but not audible a further
66 out circa 13898. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5060, 4980, 4850, 4500, Nov 15 at 0041, JBA
carriers on this quartet make it 100% certain that these are PBS
Xinjiang, Urumqi, now on their winter channels for Chinese, Uyghur,
Kazakh and Mongolian, respectively -- as in Aoki, but EiBi lax them
all and in fact no other stations anywhen on any of them. From the
land of imperialist Chicom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems.
4500 has a bit more Doppler flutter upon it, different azimuths? The
full Aoki shows 5060 & 4980 as 100 kW at 230 degrees; 4850 100 kW ND;
4500 50 kW ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9902.570, 0000 UT Nov 9, S3/S4 of dead air, presumed R.
Cairo 9900 S American disservice. Something`s always egregious in
Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK) Oops! Date and time I had omitted

** MADAGASCAR. 15355, Nov 14 at 1945, S7/S9 open carrier or JBM:
scheduled is AWR in Ibo at 1930-2000 to be followed 2000-2030 by
French. Is no one paying attention at Talata? Ibo a.k.a. Igbo, spoken
by 18 megaNigerians, but now listened to by zero. Explained on a very
colorful website:
https://www.uiulosangeles.org/post/igbo-vs-ibo-1
``Ibo was finally replaced by Igbo as the modern and correct spelling
in the early 70's using the Igbo alphabet a, gb, ib etc… Please note
that some historical books especially those printed before the 70's
will refer to Igbo as Ibo`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 14 at 0634, no signal from VON, where
something`s always abysmal at Abuja (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Nov 14 at 1910, N American frequency of REE is JBA
direct, this early after weekday *1900; much better on ME 12030,
S9/+10 and SAm 11940, S9. Any higher band would be preferable for us.

By 2300, 9690 is VG into Maryland SDR for token M/W/F English.
Including at 2320 Justin Coe interviewing Cornelius, a guy who plays
blues from his trike upon which two dozen instruments are mounted.
That I`d like to see as well as hear: briefly and talked over for a
minute, ``St James Infirmary Blues``; morphing into a Louis Armstrong
version. But that too is cut off for the final sesquiminute of some
other music. Come, on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 14 at 2337-2340, VOT with `Did You Know That` ---
what? Again the YL is so accented and the talk audio fi so lo, that it
would take more concentration than I can muster to follow. VG S9/+20
into UTwente, but some hum. 2352 sign/off, 2353 IS and off by 2354*
uncovering ChiCom which TRT completely covered before (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Nov 14 at 1940-1943 among plenty CW 10m ham
beacons, a few I copy are all relogs:
28197, VE7MTY/B
28214+, W6REK/B
28218, VVV DE N6SPP/B
28269+, DE AA1TT/B
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: Confirmed Sunday
November 13 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz not 918 or 207,
S9+5/15 into Noale SDR, SAH and slight CCI from understation,
presumably Smooth Radio, England.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 14 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, best into S
Louisiana SDR, S5/S9 but reception breaking up; also tried others in
LA, TX. WRMI-13 still listed on 222 degree beam toward C America, tho
one such antenna was reportedly going to take months to repair; is
this a different one, yet same azimuth? Very unfavorable thisaway some
90 degrees clockwise, off the side.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 14 at 0130 on WRMI 5950, VG
S9+20/30, WRMI-8 aimed 355 degrees.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 13 from 0402 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160
minus 64 Hz = 6159.936, but JBA into Maryland SDR, with plenty ACI
from 6165 Cuba. On QRP, or bad propagation? JL ran over again. Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. Nov 14 at 2140 UT I see that WTWW.us homepage now says:

``If You LOVED us on 5085!! We are moving`` -- and I suspect where. As
early as last Thursday there were some ``WTWW`` files on a WRMI System
server. So I ask Jeff White about it November 14, WTWWRMI? He replies
at 2253 UT:

``Glenn: It seems that they are already announcing things on the WTWW
webstream, so yes, I can confirm that we are in negotiations to
transmit some of the former programming of WTWW on one or more WRMI
frequencies. But we have no schedule yet. Jeff White, General Manager,
WRMI Radio Miami International``. Also says those WTWW files are for
next Wavescan produxion.

Dave Zantow also reported at 2239: ``As I listen on-line to the still
active WTWW TX 2 audio feed today, we hear WRMI now made comment too.
So, it appears that the 5085 Khz Rock-Pop feed will or has already
moved to a WRMI frequency? Hopefully minus the "Bible Babble" which I
doubt. Dave Zantow N9EWO, Janesville, WI, "Dave's Radio Receiver Page"
https://www.qsl.net/n9ewo/ ``

Also glad to find that the non-promoted classical stream WTWW offers
is still running. I listen for about an hour from 2140 Nov 14:
https://wtww.us/pages/listen-live/classical.php
However, without any announcements to ID the music, nor visually.
Mostly short pieces including some vocals; clashing generic WTWW ID at
2207 treating Our National Anthem as if were mere produxion music. At
2214 a classical piece was cut off and another one started. I wonder
what`s the source and how programmed, a ``jukebox``? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Nov 14 at 0634, no signal from R. Vanuatu, so still
on 5040 before 0659? But at 0705, JBA carrier on 11835, even weaker on
7890, harmonix of 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7590, Nov 14 at 0632, SW Asian language, S9/S7,
something new? Nothing listed but maybe R. Farda upslide from 7585
where nothing heard, registered 0230-0830 via Kuwait (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2598 USB, Nov 13 at 0745 UT, synthYL with marine weather,
S5/S3. Sounds like same on 2749 USB, but both too weak to try to // as
synchro on second receiver. Per dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm, starting at
0737 on 2598 is VCP-4, Placentia NL, 3000 watts; and from 0740 on
2749, VCO Sydney NS, 550 watts, both as first broadcasts of a new
morning, at 4:07 am in NL, 3:40 am in NS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 10080, Nov 13 at 0756, RHC is here! S4/S8 in Spanish; in a
routine check for possible harmonic of Vanuatu 5040, which is still a
JBA carrier, surely not Cuba there. The sloppyrators at Bauta must
have accidentally tuned up the 5040 transmitter to its second
harmonic! With all others off by 0759, will Esperanto show here at
0800? NO, RHC news sounder and news in Spanish past 0805 when I zonk.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, UT Sun Nov 13 at 0751, RHC English is still on in jazz
show featuring a familiar Brazilian YL singer, S7/S9 but
undermodulated; and also on 6060, S8/S9 with better mod and some hum.
So all set for weekly Sunday Esperanto at 0800? NO, both are off by
0759, while 10080 continues in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Sunday Nov 13 at 1600 RHC Spanish ID, theme, to
continue on 15140 & 11760 & FM only; 1601 opening weekly Esperanto,
with schedule still claimed to be Sun 0800 on 6100, 1600 on 11760
only, and 2330 on 15730. Has RHC put up a B-22 sked by now? Of course
not! Now TWO YEARS OLD, B-20 skeds, in Spanish:
https://www.radiohc.cu/de-interes/frecuencias

HORARIOS, BANDAS Y FRECUENCIAS EN ESPAÑOL
PERIODO NOVIEMBRE 2020/MARZO 2021
CAMBIO DE HORARIO Y FRECUENCIA 17 DE NOVIEMBRE

And note the late effective date, so when in 2022?

Likewise the English sked:
https://www.radiohc.cu/en/de-interes/frecuencias
And Esperanto:
https://www.radiohc.cu/eo/de-interes/frecuencias

Something`s always wrong at RHC. Also, listening to first few minutes,
I catch them in Spanish-influenced stressmistakes: ``Amériko`` and
``polítiko`` instead of Ameríko and politíko`` -- and this will be
nonsense if an editor strip my accents off these; for clarity as in
Esp`o, everything is penultimate with no acutes required (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13567, 13633, 13767, 13834 approx., Nov 13 at 1517, RHC
spurblobs out of 13700 transmitter which is only S2/S4 itself. The
difficult to pinpoint broadband blobs suffer from extremely distorted
modulation, F#? tone. Same thing was happening last night out of q.v.
13740, no doubt same defective Bauta transmitter. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA [non]. 15160, Nov 13 at 1523, good signal in unknown
language. EiBi shows at 1500-1600 it`s Dimtse Woyane in TIG = Tigrinya
via Issoudun, FRANCE; subject to Ethiopian DRMish noise jamming, but
none audible here now.

From http://www.eibispace.de/dx/README.TXT
info about lang. abbrs. confusingly in two different systems:

TIG Tigrinya/Tigray: Ethiopia (4m), Eritrea (3m) [tir]
TGR Tigre/Tigré/Tigrawit: Eritrea (1m) [tig]
On the right in [brackets] the ISO 639-3 (SIL) language code for
reference. For more information on language [abc] visit
https://iso639-3.sil.org/code/abc
I wonder how different be TIG and TGR. SIL = Summer Institute of
Linguistix, gospel huxters but with remarkable language work (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INTERNATIONAL VACUUM. New WORLD OF RADIO schedule on WRN: See USA
[and non]

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 13 at 0736, no signal from R. Kiribati,
presumably another silent Sunday night. No other 9/kHz split carriers
audible either, TP or TA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15605, Nov 13 at 1522, S6/S9 in unknown language. EiBi
shows at 1500-1530 it`s AWR in MZ to NIn = MZ Mizo / Lushai:
India-Mizoram (0.7m) [lus], and nothing else anywhen on 15605 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sun Nov 13 at 0156, tune in this WRMI for
`Encore` at 0200 but classical music is already playing: I had
forgotten that the 01-02 schedule would stick rather than shift an
hour later on this System -- presumably it`s `Encore` as what else
would be classical on WRMI! There is no spoken outro as Brice Avery
always closes out before playing the last piece. Then to my surprise,
after ID, `Encore` starts -- again, at 0200 instead of scheduled
`Teachers Corner` -- mistake or deliberate? Anyhow, I can hear the
whole hour now and it matches the Nov 12 Playlist. What will happen
next week? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Nov 13 at 0750, JBA carrier presumed SIBC,
even weaker than 5040 Vanuatu; in the convenient absence of both
Cubans from 5025 & 5040 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WRN provides the correct new times for WORLD OF
RADIO via satellite and streaming. AAP = Africa/Asia/Pacific. The 0230
UT Sunday time I have also confirmed. These have already been
integrated into:
http://worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT Sunday November 13 at

** VANUATU. 5040, Nov 13 at 0638, JBA carrier here and not 7260, so
must be R. Vanuatu, in absence of CUBA [q.v. which IS on 10080!]. At
0733 slightly stronger JBAC on 5040 and no signals on 7890 or 11835,
so unusually this time must not have switched to 3945++ at 0700. By
0750, trace of modulation on 5040, not just carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Nov 12 at 1456 nothing yet into
Argentine SDR from LRA36, but it cuts on at 1458.6 midsong at S5/S7 --
but cuts off the air already at 1505.4 before anything be spoken.
Usually it never comes back, so after 1508, I suspend, as anyway it`s
breakfast time. However, 1526 recheck it`s back on talking about a
fiesta `tomorrow`; 1530 about folklore and 1536 el costumbre argentino
de fútbol; same stuff heard on Wed Nov 9; 1553 ``nos une`` ID; 1556

** BRAZIL. 5938.313, Nov 12 at 0726, Brazuguese, R. Voz Missionária
facilitated by a weakened 5935 WWCR as ``skip is long``. So I measure
their other frequency too and find it unstable, varying audibly circa
9664.03, S7/S9 just as at 0731 ID for ``5940`` with its power.

9664.10, Nov 12 at 2246, RVM in Portuguese at S9+20 with het (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9900, Nov 12 at 2247, double Chinese echo, S9+15 = CNR1
jammers against RTI. No sign of Cairo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 12 at 2230, no signal from RHC where English used
to be, nor found anywhere else in scans of all bands.

11850, Nov 12 at 2242, S7/S9 of dead air except for some hum, maybe
trace of modulation, usual for this RHC Spanish frequency.

13608 approx., Nov 12 at 2235, extremely distorted RHC Spanish
wideband spurblob, FMish with F# tone. Then I look for others: 13673,
S9+12; 13808-13811, 13887 weak. Source has to be only active AM
transmitter on band, 13740, which is clear at S9+20. Displacement
range is 67-73 kHz and multiples. Somethings` always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 9870, Nov 12 at 0735 expressive M&M conversation
in Korean, so informal it could not possibly be from the North: yes,
it`s KBSWR at 07-08 via Woofferton UK. Caught one English word go by,
``invisible`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. This explains my hearing Chinese on 11620 a while
ago at 1500+ -- mixed up with their simulservice on 7630, likely same
secret site. Nothing is listed anywhere near 7630.

``TVOM Voice of the Martyrs - Chinese program (site?), on 7630, on Nov

`Saturday Night` show, much better than last night (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.935, Nov 12 at 0634, VON S9/+10 direct but JBM, first

2251 recheck, DJ is yelling (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday November 12 at 0130 on WRMIs: into KFS SE antenna SDR in
California, 5850 VG S9+15/30, and 15770, S9+5/25.

Also confirmed UT Saturday November 12 at 0500 ex-0400 on WBCQ Radio
Angela, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 12 at 1700 on WRN N America webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday November 12 until 2103.5 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, so started circa 2034, S9+20 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 12 at 2100 on WRN stream for Europe,
but *not* to N America, rather KBS World Radio, which on the A22
schedule still displayed, was at 2200 UT. I have enquired about this
contradictory info. This also calls into question what happen 24 hours
later on Sunday; and for the other listed airing which was at 1230 UT
Sunday; now 1330, or what? Next:

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Nov 12 after 0100, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`,
elexion discussion, so not a repeat, politix I can forego, so recheck
at 0142 datestamp as 11 of Nov, YOOLF 2022, trimulcasting on 7490,
6160 and 5130; 0147 some items from Free Radio Weekly which he and I
have just received from this week`s editor, Larry Will. 0148 he
mentions me who ``doesn`t have a life`` -- or was it, wife?? in
response to my numerous non-logs of SuperStition 9330 -- problem seems
to be computer control which could not bring up the high voltage.
Rails against c.c. of transmitters rather than traditional analog
electro/mechanical operation. Unfortunately, AW has moved his show one
hour later so it conflicts with WOR already at 0130 on WRMI 5850 &
15770 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sat Nov 12 at 1800, WWCR with `Talking [sic] Machine
Show`, mostly ancient cylinder-recorded music. One episode starts,
then cut to a different episode restart. New sked dated Nov 6 still
shows this the only airtime on the 4 transmitters available 24/7.
Surely could be fit in as filler elsewhen. One of few shows ever worth
hearing on WWCR, and certainly the only one of their own produxions.
Ex-1700 during DST season (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260 & 5040, Sat Nov 12 at 0638, no signal from RV on
either likely fundamental. At 0737, no signals either on harmonix 7890
& 11835. Gary Pence agrees, nothing at 0752 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5814 USB, Nov 12 at 0724, JBA 2-way not Spanish, maybe

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Nov 11 at 0725 UT, two different stations, same
YL robovoice with marine weather in English, QRMing each other at same
level; sometimes a few seconds apart, othertimes not matching. My
first log of the season of Coast Guard broadcasts. Checking
https://www.dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm
this frequency applies only to Metarea 4, but nothing scheduled at
this hour, the closest being VCO Sydney NS, 550 watts from 0740z in
EE/FF. They do switch to French with a ``securité`` advisory, so maybe
a special transmission; and then both are gone at 0727*. The other
stations on frequency which are supposed to alternate at numerous
times rather than clashing! are VAR-9 at Yarmouth(Halifax), VCN at
Escoumins, and VCS-21 Halifax. This info may be outdated as top of
page is dated 2020-05-13. Nothing on the NL-area channel now,
2598-USB. Hepburn replies ``Most likely a warning broadcast on
receipt. William`` --- so I guess with such urgency they don`t care
whether they QRM each other or not --- but rather self-defeating. I
hope everyone survived (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9330, Fri Nov 11 at 0716, dead air soon occupied by
Spy Numbers, so WBCQ/WLCR is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Nov 11 at 0720, S7/S9 open carrier with hum, must be
lingering RHC, and on no other frequency. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7295, Fri Nov 11 at 1817, IRRS via Bulgaria with
`Radio Curious` interview about ``tapping my own phone``, in the spot
where WOR used to be; as heard via UTwente. Rather than fragment,
occupies full semihour until 1846 PSAs for SmokeyBear and COVIDmasks,
1847 Willie Nelson, ``I`ll Fly Away`` and more music. Here it is:
http://www.radiocurious.org/2022/11/04/ron-whitehead-sarah-elizabeth-beat-poets-of-kentucky-2
1854 birdcalls open `TUC Radio` which is bound to be chopped off
shortly, at 1857* but carrier and loudulation from CGTN Radio start on
7295 already at *1856; 1858 with US stock market info! (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** MALI. 15125, Nov 11 at 1616, S9/S8 with romantic song or hymn? but
in Chinese. By 1620 YL in Arabic. This is CRI Arabic via Bamako at
16-17, 100 kW at 85 degrees, to be followed at 17-18 by Swahili at 111
degrees. Yet it`s the SSOB comparable only to 15140 Cuba less
modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13755, November 11 at 0713, JBA carrier no doubt the
new frequency of RNZP, ex-13730 which had interference problems, as
frequency manager Adrian Sainsbury had notified us a few hours before.
Unfortunately conditions are very bad tonight with nothing else on 13
MHz band, making this the OSOB and SSOB! I was hoping he could justify
going down to 11 MHz band which would be better for the extra N
American audience beyond. Website sked now:

06:59-12:58 13755 AM from 11 Nov Pacific Mon - Sun
08:59-12:58 13755 AM from 11 Nov NW Pacific Vanuatu Solomon Isl PNG
Mon - Fri

Thus on Mon-Fri only the last four hours are on a dual/split antenna,
both NNE and NW, so the signal may be weaker thisaway? HFCC azimuths
are 35 and 325 degrees. 13755 no doubt chosen as an open frequency,
however with considerable Asian adjacencies on 13750 & 13760 tho not
audible here, yet, anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 25, KWTV-DT ``9``, CBS from OKC, UT Friday November 11
from 0430 UT is just fine direct to my antenna, fortunately, since
``Optimum`` ex-Suddenlink cable has replaced it with tone and color
bars, the 3/4 variety, with a floating white rectangle in the center!
Thus subscribers without antennas are deprived of Colbert, `Late Show`,
then the `Late2` show and beyond, still not restored by 0700 when we
quit; but back the next morning. No other OKC channels appeared to be
blocked on cable. What could explain this? And the floating rectangle?
And how could one calculate the value of such an outage to claim a
rebate? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, Fri Nov 11 at 2315, token English from REE is
interviewing someone who is campaigning to Free the Dolphins from
captivity in aquaria and zoos - no excuse, they are not endangered and
such intelligent beings should not be encarcerated. At the end her
name sounds like Olivia Malo? or Mandel? I`m listening off the back of
the ME beam which is reaching Maryland SDR just fine. So is the NAm
frequency 9690 but there is heavy clicking QRM over it, like OTH
radar: see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 11 at 2330, VOT in `Feeling Supreme` with some
kind of advice; 2339 `Did You Know That`, something about Atatürk. VG
modulation this time and S9+30/40 into UTwente, but with some CCI from
understation, PBS Xinjiang, East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom
genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems. 2352 sign-off now has the
UTimes correctly. 2354 fragment of IS, and off* uncovering XJPBS
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2164 monitoring: confirmed first
broadcast, UT Friday November 11 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9 but JBA in
high local noise level. I hope the signal be usable somewhere,
presumably on antenna aimed SW from FL, like Central America where
there are no SDRs to check it. Also, as always on this System,
starting exactly the same time as WOR playback is a loud noise burst
atop for about 15 seconds, obviously a defect at WRMI.

Also confirmed Friday November 11 at 1530 ex-1430 on WRMI 9955, S9/S5
and no jamming audible; off the air after 1600.

Also confirmed Friday November 11 at 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia,
1323 kHz, S9+10/15 into nearby Noale SDR with little QRM except for a
fast SAH. Preceding show was `Shortwave Report` from California, but
chopped off before final item could complete, IRRS ID and WOR. Next:

** U S A. 15750-15755-15760, Nov 11 at 1617, WINB DRM, now with DRM
noise on the lower half, other secret beepery on upper half, opposite
of usual configuration. Then after 1630 I try to decode it via Kansas
City SDR, but not enough signal to hear. Does display: ``1AAC (1001))
WINB EE? audio 8.28 kbps``

This flip was originally reported Oct 26: ``There are two separate
elements when tuning through the digital WINB signal: The DRM "roar"
as well as a "buzzwhine" that is presumably the trading data. For
quite some time the DRM was on the low frequency side of the signal,
but on recent checks it is now on the high side, as the two
datastreams have swapped places. Wonder why? Stephen Luce, Houston,
Texas`` To which I replied at that time: ``??? As far as I have
noticed the DRM roar has always been on WINB`s high side`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Regarding WTWW and Scriptures for America, I came across
this rather negative resumé about SFA and PPPP, altho it does not get
into the SW broadcasting angle:
https://www.encyclopedia.com/politics/legal-and-political-magazines/scriptures-america

Also, characterizing SFA as ``owner`` of WTWW may have been an
exaggeration. Wikipedia goes into its history, already in the past
tense with latest developments of Nov. 9-10, 2022:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WTWW

Pertinent excerpts: ``...programming from the Scriptures for America
broadcast network, part of a long-term leasing agreement that
continued throughout WTWW's existence.[citation needed]``

``Owner --- Ted Randall and Holly Misslin (Leap of Faith, Inc.)``

However: ``I am President of Leap of faith, Inc. owner. George
McClintock, 11-11-2022``, he tells me.

WRTH 2022 page 511 lists the ``L.P.: Pres (Leap of Faith, Inc.) George
V. McClintock; Engineer: Ted Randall``. So it looks like a
long-running 2- or 3-way power struggle (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9666-9696, Nov 11 at 2310, loud rapid clicking is QRMing
heavily English from REE SPAIN q.v., as received not only by Maryland
and Virginia SDRs, but at least as bad at UTwente. So it is certainly
external from Spain and the SDRs, Soviet? Er, ``Russian``? The other
three REEs are in the clear. 2355 recheck during REE French, the clix
have stopped (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
