Logs
** CANADA. 15034-USB, Aug 30 at 1447, no signal from CHR Trenton
Military VOLMET; nor on numerous other random daytime chex, tho still
active on 6754-USB night channel. Propagation has been pitiful, but
now I *am* getting 14670-RCUSB, CHU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Aug 30 at 1445, S6/S9 dead air from RHC; meanwhile,
modulating to various degrees on 15230, 15140, 11760, 9710, 9535, and
by 1450 also resumed on 13700. Meanwhile, no spurblobs out of that
now, nor for quite a while, last caught on July 8 at +/- 62 kHz, etc.;
surely they will eventually erupt again. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CZECHIA [non]. 15770, Sunday August 29 at 2135, very nice classical
music on harp -- could this WRMI be an Encore encore? S9+20 better
than usual here off the side. No, it`s R. Prague in French. Seems both
the English and French services play classical on Sundays, this one
concluding with giveaway `Moldau` at 2157 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290, Mon Aug 30 at 1745, I`m checking whether IRRS
still be on air from 1800, as it was missing on Sat Aug 28 when WOR
should have aired. Via UTwente, at first I hear Russian, which is Iran
scheduled until 1750. Also the constant RTTY warble on plus side only.
1748 another carrier on? Iran soon disappears but no formal closing
heard; uncovers even weaker CNR China. *1755 stronger OC with hum,
S9+25 in Synch mode, presumed BULGARIA; a few seconds before 1800, no
Aïda theme at all but quick IRRS sign-on with phone number, falsely
claiming to be in reduced-carrier USB; and right into a gospel huxter
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Aug 30 at 2157, this REE frequency for S America is
still AWOL. The other three continue past 2200 joining for English, VG
17855, 15520, 11670 in decreasing order via Maryland SDR. Justin Coe
does news first about Spain`s de-involvement in Afghanistan; to be
followed by folk musician Eliseo Parra. The music finally starts at
2215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 30 at 2200, VOT English is not off the air today!
VG into Maryland SDR. But I`m listening to Spain until its English be
over at 2230; more than second half of VOT hours are mostly good
Turkish music fill, with interruptions such as the 2-minute
multilingual ID reel --- which could be a learning experience if they
would label each one in English. It`s hard for us to differentiate the
various Turkic languages. 2346 already signing off English with
convoluted English schedule, then IS keeps on and on until 2256 starts
interspersing German IDs. 2259 quick break in transmission probably
when the sleepyrator thinx they are turning it off, but right back on,
2300 timesignal and opening spurious German hour, not with news but
historical talk about Atatürk, who was too secular for Erdogan; and
other features, still on past 2320 with web address, much more music;
2325 another talk, briefly about Olympix, 2327 ID like in English
``VOT with you everywhere``, song starts until finally abrupt chopoff
at 2329*! Something`s always erroneous at Emirler; extra German
probably had more listener in Oklahoma than at 1-1:30 am in Zentral
Europa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Aug 30 at 1444, K6FRC ID over and over from 1.8
milliwatt HIFER beacon in Patterson CA. Check for it almost every day
in bandscan, only heard around this time, and last logged July 30
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
August 29 at 2000 on IRRS Shortwave via AM Italia, 918 kHz, VG S9+33
into nearby Noale SDR. So this is still funxioning if SW 7290 is not,
Saturdays at 1800. See also ITALY [non].

Missed checking Sunday Aug 29 at 2230 on WRMIs 9955 and new 7780: did
anyone hear them?!

Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 30 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+20/30.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 30 at 0130 on WRN webcast to North America.

Confirmed replaced by something else Mon Aug 30 at 0230 on WRMIs 7780
& 5800.

NOT confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-, UT Mon Aug 30 at 0300, as
that WBCQ is OFF the air. I believe I had noticed it on air an hour or
two before. 4790 is also off now but the other BCQs remain on: 3265,
7490 and 9330. No lightning around Monticello now. WOR is running on
Area 51 webcast, checked 0317 at midpoint. And by 0351, 6160 is back
on with HRI, and 4790 with BS. At 0412, 6160 is still playing A51
music as on webcast. Would have been nice if WOR could have run then
instead. Last week`s WOR on 6160 was also curtailed. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA

Thanks this week to Dan in Cincinnati, who says, ``Dear Glenn, I am
writing to thank you again for all of the great information that you
gather and report weekly`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. As Hurricane Ida hits New Orleans and knocks out all power,
about time to check whether 7505 WRNO can be on the air from *0100;
it`s anyway erratic without storms. 0120 next check: WRNO is absent,
surprise2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 870, Aug 30 0042-0050+ UT, no signal from WWL New
Orleans. CNN has also just reported that the entire city is without
power - but you`d think this vital station would have backup
generators, contingency plans. A rare chance to DX something else on
870? But 0122 next check: WWL is back on with callers, serenaded by
the Cuban whooper. Later ToH legal ID includes a bunch of HD2s on FM
stations; wish I could copy all. So AM 870 is RRRR = really rather
redundant radio? Still WWL 870 is the place for NOLA news in the
aftermath if you can get it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1040, another anomaly at 0040-0044+ UT Aug 30, strongest
signal on 1040 is dead air, looping from the direxion of WHO Des
Moines. 0122 next check: 1040 WHO is remodulating with talk show
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, August 30 at 0531,
early enough that not everything has faded out yet: 621, 711, 747(2),
774-, 846=Kiritimati?, 882, 1107, 1125, 1503(2).

1503 is especially intriguing: WRTH shows two low-power RNE5 Spain of
2 and 5 kW; beyond that, 25 kW inactive Egyptian on the dayside; not
to mention 1 kWs Bosnia and UK. Maybe not too early for 2.5/5 kW
NZers? (2) means at least two carriers beating.

Notable for its absence now and for some months is a carrier on 936
kHz, which would hold up later than most of Europe and was assumed to
be the 200 kW in Agadir, Morocco. I last logged it Jan 24 & 27, and
Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal reported on May 31, ``711 and 936 outlets
off the air``. In MW Circle, Aug 30, John Hoad in Canary Islands,
says, ``more recently Morocco 936 kHz has gone. 73 John, Playa Blanca
Lanzarote``. Jorge Garzón Gutiérrez "IberiaDX", 39698 Santiurde de
Toranzo (ESPAÑA - SPAIN), replies, ``Hi John, I have 936 al-Amazighia
(MRC) last record on May 2021. Did you listen to later than this?
Maybe is not active since then? ¡Gracias!``. Furthermore, I am not
hearing once-reliable Algerians on 531, 891 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6910-USB, Aug 29 at 2330, JBA contact sounds like MARS
or some mily/govt net, NCS503 calling NN6GT, not sure of second call`s
prefix; partially foneticized. Preceded and followed by much louder
beepery, perhaps SSTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** SCOTLAND [non]. 5950, Sat Aug 28 at 2200, `Encore` classical music
via WRMI is mistakenly playing the 21/8 episode per the Playlist; but
next airing UT Sun Aug 29 at 0100 on 5850 & 7780 is correct 28/8
edition; unfortunately simul with another TRSW Euro relay,
non-classical, on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: confirmed UT Sun
Aug 29 at 0030 on WRMI 5950, S9+15/25 via Knoxville SDR: last time for
this airing, to be replaced by something else next week.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 29 at 0347 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 14
minutes into so started circa 0333, good but with storm noise despite
none nearby to neighbor SDR. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW [NEW]
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

Thanks this week to Dan in Cincinnati, who says, ``Dear Glenn, I am
writing to thank you again for all of the great information that you
gather and report weekly`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 14325-USB, Aug 28 at 2302, Hurricane Watch Net, no contacts
heard, but K2JB is reading some warnings; says will also be active on
7268[LSB] tomorrow at 8 am CDT = 13 UT; but at 0018 UT Aug 29, the
latter is certainly active too with Ida advisories, as heard via
Knoxville SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12788, 8502, 4316, Aug 28 at 2145, attempts to monitor USCG
New Orleans, NMG as scheduled per EiBi at 2130-2145: nothing.

4318 approx., Aug 29 at 0630, fax at S9+10/20, NMG scheduled
0600-0855.

12788-USB, Aug 29 at 1749, S3-S5 into Knoxville SDR, with fadeouts,
marine weather about tropical storms in Atlantic, waves starting off W
Africa. Obs mostly longitude 50 or less, nothing to do with Hurricane
Ida. NMG N.O. sked at 1715-1750. 1752 robotic voice with Norfolk
address, originating there? 1753 finally mentions Ida landfall
briefly, on to Juliet; ``This is US Coast Guard Communications
Command, out out`` and off 1755.5* = 5.5 minutes later than sked. No
individual station ID. Recheck at 1823, fax beepery approx. 12790 as
sked 1800-2105 for NMG. Nothing ever audible on 8502 or 4316 and
suspect not really on air in daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 870, Aug 29 at 0638 UT, WWL New Orleans apparently
live with calls about Hurricane Ida; Cuban whoop-whoop QRM comes and
goes, usually JBA underneath but some surges. Of course, WWL is easily
the dominant signal here, scarcely one megameter away. It will be
interesting to hear whether it be knocked off the air, not to mention
WRNO 7505, which is anyway erratic; check at 0100-0400.

Many listeners afar have complained about whooping: apparently a very
much-out-of-order Cuban transmitter rather than deliberate jamming,
and similars have shown up on other frequencies. WRTH 2021 has three R
Relojes on 870, 10 kW each at Bueycito, Granma, and Baracoa-Van Van,
Guantánamo; 1 kW at Sancti-Spíritus, S.S. The first two are in eastern
Cuba while S.S. is in central Cuba, more likely to be the whooper
except it`s lowest-powered. IF this info be correct, current.

Terry Krueger`s Cubalist has not been updated in exactly 5 years; back
then, it showed on 870 one Reloj in S.S.; the Baracoa Reloj on 860
instead; R. Progreso also on 870 in S.S. per WRTH 1997; and a Progreso
in Pilón, Granma. DXers closer to north of Cuba ought to be able to
get DF bearing on the whooper, from which part of the Great Antille?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Aug 29 at 0020, WTWW-2 $ tereo webcast of
TOUTA is already underway; in fact wrapping up at 0025 with `Mr
Sandman` until 0027, back to Ted`s hard-sell commercials. Must have
started very early circa 2356 Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Brasil, still no signal from LRA36 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8503 approx., Aug 28 at 1910, via Missouri SDR, warbling
sound, presumably NMG USCG New Orleans with fax as now sked in EiBi.
Alternates with voice transmissions: all ears on that for Hurricane

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
August 28 from 1800:33 on IRRS SW via Italia AM, 918 kHz, VG S9+22
into nearby Noale SDR. As usual, playing `Aïda` march theme from
before 1759, quick ID and then WOR --- BUT simulmonitoring 7290 via
UTwente, NO IRRS SIGNAL from Bulgaria at start nor past 1830, just
that weak Chinese before 1800, its ToH timesignal, and a few more
minutes, vs RTTY warbling on the plus side. I let 7290 run the entire
semihour in case it cut on; there were one or two blips which might
have been attempts, or more likely, QRM.

Also confirmed Sat Aug 28 from 1950 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, VG S9+8
into nearby SDR. Next:

** U S A. 12160, Sat Aug 28 at 1728, the last minutes of scratchy
lo-fi ancient record or cylinder music, no closing announcement, just
quick WWCR ID and intro a Nashville gospel huxter. `The Talking
Machine Show`, misnamed as most of the old recordings are music, not
talk! scheduled 1700 UT Saturdays. I search the latest, Aug 1, WWCR
skedgrids and do not find *any* other time for it now! Used to fill
several slots, and I do mean fill, subject to time being sold off.
Perhaps the only WWCR program worth listening to, certainly the only
one itself produces, i.e. by engineer Phil Patton. 12160 at midday
here one megameter away usually provides a VG signal, like today
S9+10/20.

There also used to be another similar show but can`t remember the name
and don`t see any sign of it on sked either, tsk2. O, maybe this be
it, from Alan Roe`s latest, July, Music Programmes on Shortwave ---
`Last Radio Playing`, Wed 23-24 UT on 6115, only (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 1110 kHz, Aug 28 at 0646 UT, `C2CAM` has been discussing SW
numbers stations on KFAB Omaha, which is normally a loud & clear
affiliate to here, but now I am also hearing a weak pre-echo. C2CAM
affiliate list shows three others: KBND in Oregon, but it`s direxional
west into Pacific at night; KAOI in Hawaii, ND but doesn`t start until
0800; and WBT Charlotte NC, of course the latter despite its two major
50 kW night lobes to the NE and south, very little thisaway (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
