Hauser
** ALGERIA [non]. 13815, Oct 19 at 1842, Qur`an at S7-S9, during RTA
relay hour via FRANCE. Violating Separation of Mosque and State ---
what, you say? Well, there should be, everywhere. My unID of 13815 in
Arabic after 23 UT once, remains a mystery (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9540-9590 approx., Oct 19 at 2207, splash range from heavy
jamming centered on 9565 against R. Martí; and another peak about
9600-9605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, Oct 19 at 2210, RHC S9+20 but distorted, as the Chief
Meteorologist roughly summarizes weather for Canada, USA, in Spanish;
as well as about :15 past some English hours. Even worse on
undermodulated 11850. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

You may notice that I seldom mention the content of RHC programming;
because it`s so outweighed by their SAWAs; and because you cannot
trust RHC to be honest about Cuban affairs, let alone American. DDC is
a good source for The Other Side, for example:

'Growing old in Cuba is like a living hell' -- 'I’m not helpless, and
I don't want to be condescended to. I need a dignified retirement,'
says a retired teacher who worked for the state for 35 years...
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1634315177_34832.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Oct 19 at 1501 tune-in for another
Tuesday-only check of IRRS` Kashmir Civitas [not Citivas I typoed last
week], VG S9+35 via UTwente, but it`s in Romanian!! I bet that`s RRI
programming by mistake; 1502 abrupt cut to Urdu with music background,
shortly switch to another speaker with no music. 1514 adding the
strumming undercurrent; 1526 cut to lite jazz, presumably filler after
K.C. feed ends or fails, until chopped off air at 1529.5* with no
further announcements nor even RRI IS fragment this week (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, Oct 19 at 0615, VON is on for a change, S9+10/20
in Hausa. Replying to my previous obs that it`s mostly missing at
0600+, Ron Howard and Wolfgang Bueschel say it`s intermittent and/or
may come on air later than I check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAIPAN [and non]. 11895, Oct 19 at 0609, S7-S9 in Chinese, SSOB as
otherwise on 25 mb nothing but JBA carriers. RFA Chinese scheduled,
also jammed, and also CRI English via Kashgar, East Turkistan, land of
imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems. 22 mb
also vacant except for 13840 NZ. Nothing but Pacific is propagating
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Oct 18 at 2200, REE back here after being the one
frequency missing the past week; but like before it crashed, again
distorted as switches from Spanish to English on a Monday; the S
American beam, now also fluttery and ``hollow``-sounding. The other
three are detectable, 17855, 15520, 11670, but 11940 is ``best``.

Another check Oct 19 at 2219, presumably Sefarad on Tuesday, 11670 &
11940 are JBA; zero on 15520 and JBA carrier on 17855. WWV says
K-index at 21 was 4, but no storms observed or predicted (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 245-MCW kHz, Oct 19 at 0620 UT, ND beacon FS, 400 watts from
Sioux Falls SD.

263-MCW kHz, Oct 19 at 0622 UT, NDB CVM, 25 watts from Alton / Civic
Memorial IL. Tuning upward for a change, the only two I log before
offdozing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 approx., Oct 19 at 1425, JBA CW somewhere between
13563 and 13564, finally another HIFER beacon logged, as I was
checking for 13565 K6FRC - not today. Very tough copy, not sure
whether middle letter has 3 or 4 dots, so YHO? NO, YSO per
https://www.lwca.net/sitepage/part15/index.htm
``13563.5~ YSO Yellow Springs OH EM89 New. CW. AJ8S (h 2021/08)``
Axually I was thinking it could be there if ``YSO``.

So then I look up AJ8S at:
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/aj8s

AJ8S USA flag USA
JAMES C BAILEY
YELLOW SPRINGS, OH 45387 USA

including his portrait but none of his YSO rig:
https://cdn-bio.qrz.com/s/aj8s/me.JPG

``I operate a Part 15 cw beason [sic] "YSO" on 13563.5 kHz. Reports
are appreciated. I am a private pilot with an instrument rating but I
am no longer active as we sold our 1965 C172. As a retired engineer, I
enjoy traveling with my wife and have plenty of free time for ham
radio. I hope to hear you on the air. Thanks for reading. 73, Jim.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Mon Oct 18 at 2303, WBCQ with secret replay of first
half of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` from 25 hours ago, this time tunes
of Togo. S9+10 via Maryland remote, SAM mode showing offset minus 71
Hz = 7489.929 kHz; again I am resorting to this since webcast is so
distorted. Cut off at 2330 for bit of music, then spot ad for
refrigerator/freezers at Lowe`s, and immediately into `Camp
Constitution Radio`, far-right nonsense --- which Lowe`s is
sponsoring? By 0033 recheck during `FTIOM` has drifted to customarea
of -103 Hz = 7488.897 kHz; and 0218 rerecheck only 1 Hz lower (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 19 at 0607, zero signal from WBCQ/WLCR, tho
neighbor 9265 WINB with TOMBS is well audible. 9330 still AWOL at
1435. Exasperated Allan Weiner Worldwide had complained that something
new breaks it down every sesquiday = 36 hours. But not a bit about
this situation at his disgraced Twitter, all politix, piety and
promotion. 9330 is back on Oct 19 at 2204, S9+20 in Brazuguese (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Oct 19 at 2312, on WRMI, this week`s `AWR Wavescan`
includes an interview with Kim Andrew Elliott about how he got into
SWL and SWBC, and now all about Radiograms; I think they said it was
originally on KABC? or more likely KBC as in Mighty to which he
contributes; to be continued (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9687.8-USB approx., Oct 19 at 0613, JBA 2-way INTRUDERS,
not Spanish? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2348 UT October 19

** ARMENIA. 13690, Oct 18 at 1402, one of better signals on band at
S4-S6 with flutter, music must be S Asian as this is TWR India in
extremely convoluted language schedule by quarter-hour 1330-1500 and
day-of-week, per Aoki and EiBi on Monday 1400-1415 as Vasavi, abbr`d
VV or [vas], spoken by a megaperson in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Gone
at 1447 recheck, tho supposedly in English at 1430-1500 M-F (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Oct 18 at 0559, RHC English with horrible humbuzz now
rapidly intermittent to boot, and splattering plus/minus 10 at least.
Others: 6100 S9+20/30 but overmodulatedistorted; 6165 best at S9+30;
6000 still on at 0601, S9+20 with hum; 5040 now in Spanish at
S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, Oct 18 at 0558, RNZI achieves S9+20/30 here,
better than before and now sufficient as replacement for 11725; let`s
hope it continue at this level into NAm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11880, Oct 18 until 1457*, RRI IS good and off; at end of
German hour via a funxional Tsiganeshti AM transmitter (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 347-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0618 UT, ND beacon AFK, which is 25
watts from Nebraska City NE, only one logged before I offdoze (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2108 monitoring: Alfredo Cotroneo
explains why WOR was missing from IRRS 7290 & 918 Friday October 15 at
1815: On third Fridays it`s Radio City instead. None of this is shown
on:
https://www.nexus.org/member-services/radio-and-tv/schedules/friday-program-schedule/

Confirmed Sunday October 17 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+22 and 9955,
S9+30/35, both into Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 18 at 0030 on WRMIs: 7730 VG direct;
9395 S9+25 and 9455 much weaker S9/S7 into Knoxville.

Also confirmed after 0130 UT Mon Oct 18 on WRN N American webcast.

Also confirmed from 0302.7 UT Mon Oct 18 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160
minus 53 Hz = 6159.947, S9+10 into Maryland SDR, and much stronger
there than adjacent 6165 RHC. JL ran slightly over, and then Larry
stuck in an ancient clip of me reciting lyrix to a Slinky song; maybe
for an SWL Fest presentation? And then WOR. Next, not until
Wednesday:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, Sunday October 17 at 2230, despite simulWOR on two
WRMIs, I`m listening to second half of `UBMP` on WBCQ -- as usual the
webcast is too distorted, so I`m on a Maryland SDR at S9+15/20 for
better sound. Now it`s a female singer from Togo. I plan to catch the
first half on secret repeat Monday at 2300 on same.

I can`t help but notice that in Synch mode, this SDR shows WBCQ almost
on-frequency! 7490 minus only 0.5 to 1.5 Hz. For weeks it had usually
been around 100 Hz minus. I check further an hour+ later at 2337 but
it`s drifted up +17.5; at 2359, +49; at 0009 Oct 18, +52; at 0028, +56
Hz. By 0215 has faded to JBA but +58 Hz. I wonder if this slow drift
upwards be typical over a few hours of upwarming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 18 at 1453, S7 gospel huxter as WJHR is
rarely audible, and/or rarely on? Glorified ham station (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my 1580, KFCS log, Wayne Heinen replies:

``Glenn writes: “But in Colorado Springs itself on 94.7 there is
K234AJ, 84-watt Christian in English relay of KTLF 90.5. With a
separate but probably previous entry for the same except call as
K290AK which would not be 94.7 at all.”

FCC has K290AK at 105.9 in Colorado Springs….

All the Tigre stations are owned by GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION
except for K276GG. MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY TRANSLATORS, LLC. which appears
to be a leased operation. Colorado Springs and Pueblo are
geographically separated by Cheyenne Mountain so the 94.7 xlator can
easily coexist with Tigre 94.7

Glenn writes: “Where is Beulah? Remote tiny town SW of Pueblo.
Strangely, nothing about KRYE 94.7 here:” {in Wikipedia}

Like many of the other “City of License” locations that the FCC
accepts in suburbs and surrounding grazing lands. It’s a way to
shoehorn in a radio station…

The Tigre brand is GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION whose Tigre is out
of Greeley at KGRE AM & FM and translator K271BN Estes Park are wholly
owned. 73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO``

** CANADA. Blitzortung shows hardly any storms in N America north of
southern Mexico; so a lot of ND beacons are audible, most of them just
barely, Oct 17 at 0630-0702 UT, thoroly bandscanned originally really
downward:

212-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0702 UT, dash and YGX, 50 watts from Gillam MB

258-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0652 UT, dash and ZSJ, 1000 watts from Sandy
Lake ON -- the only beacon in NAm on 258 per dxinfocentre.com

269-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0650 UT, dash and UDE, 50 watts from Delta MB

284-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0638 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from The Pas
MB

335-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0635 UT, dash and YLD, 1000 watts from Chapleau
ON

340-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0634 UT, dash and YY, 500 watts from Mont Joli
QC

346-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0634 UT, dash and YXL, 500 watts from Sioux
Lookout ON

351-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0633 UT, dash and YKQ, 500 watts from Fort
Rupert / Waskaganish QC

362-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0632 UT, dash and SB, 500 watts from Greater
Sudbury ON

See U S A for a few more interspersed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 17 at 2210, RHC Spanish S9+25 but severely
suptorted; flanked by parasitic JBA spur carriers 11840 & vs jamming
on 11860. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11670, Oct 17 at 2159, REE best here with 2200 TS and dead
air for a while. Just before that, 17855 & 15520 JBA carriers, 11940
still no signal; direct, even tho 11670 is on worst azimuth toward
Africa, but lowest by MUF (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Some ND beacons not often heard but audible during a
bandscan downward Oct 17 at 0630-0702 UT, interspersed among more
Canadians, q.v.:

257-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0653 UT, FWC, 25 watts from Fairfield / Wayne
County IL. I was tuned to 255-USB, still in absence of SW Stillwater
OK. And FWC has a very brief pause between repeats

282-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0639 UT, ROS, 25 watts from Rush City MN. The
only NDB on this frequency anywhere in N America; and a rare new one
for me, I think. Rush City is at exit 159 of I-35, N of MSP.

329-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0636 UT, PMV, 25 watts from Plattsmouth NE

417-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0631 UT, IY, 25 watts from Charles City IA;
better copy tuned to 415-USB

420-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0630 UT, FQ, 25 watts from Fairmont MN

And next daytime: 341-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 1506 UT, OIN, 25 watts from
Oberlin KS - still in absence of local EI Enid - it had a long pause,
so must not hasten across frequency to be sure it`s still AWOL from
its 3 little dits (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2108 monitoring: zzz here past 1300
for the Sunday October 17 at 1230 on WMRI Europe, 9670 via Germany;

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 16 at 1440 and later, NO signals
from LRA36 into two Brasilia SDRs or one Montevideo; another Saturday
missed, but always only a repeat of Wednesday, if any then (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, Oct 17 at 0014 S9/+10 of old song from
30s/40s; 0016 DJ over music, ``This is --??-- Radio, moving to 6965``.
But it keeps going on 6960-AM with soul music; 0015 ID as ``--??--
AM``, and still 6960 at 0017 when I finally check 6965.

6965-USB: there is a station here now, much louder and in USB with
rock; 6960-AM continues much softer altho also reading S9+10, tho
6965-USB now peaks at S9+20. At 0025 ID as Wolverine Radio on the
upper one. I guess for a while before I tuned in there was a clash on
6960, altho I only heard one. These reports say it was Wolverine
moving from 6960 to 6965, keyword ``back`` in song titles:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87825.0.html

6960-AM, at 0028, catch a Ball Smacker Radio ID. It had been a regular
on same frequency previous nights UT Saturdays from 0100. More tonight

** U S A [non]. 5925, Oct 16 at 0320, VOA panel show pauses to plug
downloads available of various programs, S8/S9. This is 100 kW via

** U S A. WBCQ, `AAAWWW`, UT Sat Oct 16 at 0000, report from John
Carver arrived a minute too late to include in my own previous
report:

``Tonight's show started more or less on time this evening. Poor
signal on 7490 and at times there was no signal at all. 6160 dropped
out a few times and all that could be heard was Cuba. Actually this
evening the best signal is on 4790 and it's not all that great.
Opening comment from Angela about the rain forest. Allan says he's
tired of always talking politics and would like to just talk about
radio for a change but talks politics to try and prove to us that the
government is out to get us. Also takes jabs at his favorite, the IRS
and Congress. He posits that instead of defunding the police we should
be defunding the government. Defends Trump's efforts to try and reform
the government. He says that the government is after our wallets and
Angela states that it's our rights they want to take.

He apologizes to us for all the problems with the superstation stating
they have not been able to run more than thirty-six hours till another
problem pops up. The company still has someone there tinkering with
the transmitter and whenever they turn around a new problem pops up.
He is very upset about this transmitter but had wanted to buy American
and wonders if that was a mistake on his part. Says that if he had
been thinking he would have put a backup transmitter in place to avoid
downtime but since it was brand new and American made he thought it
would be alright. They are looking into a backup transmitter now.

Phone call at 0023 from Rabishu about a foreign ham net which Angela
answered at Allan's urging. Then some talk about Nearfest and their
plans to be there next spring. Allan wants to read the Free Radio
Weekly and while trying to find it gets a message from Hal Turner
saying that his website is under attack and he doesn't know if
tonight's show will stream or not and Allan calls out for whoever is
monitoring his program at the station to see if Hal Turner's show
shows up on the feed tonight. Phone call at 0049 from a preacher who
is also a radio pirate and calls himself the Gospel Gunslinger. He
finally finds the Free Radio Weekly and reads a few items from it.
Then a bit more about politics and reading of emails at 0056. Closing
prayer at 0100 and off the air at 0102. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (via
Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. 7780, Oct 16 at 0323, WRMI S9/+10, much stronger than usual
here off the side of the NE azimuth, yet still weaker than 7730 & 7570
with TOMBS. Here we hear the often-played Andean tune on quena and
guitar, so must be world-music filler; 0325, Bishop Bob Biermann
claims this is ``9395`` --- what does he know? It so happens on the
skedgrids, the 0300-0330 block is a blank space, neither System F nor
System D (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Oct 17 at 0003, WTWW-2 already in `TOUTA`, but
it`s also prime time for pirates which I attend; by 0040 I have
switched to WTWW-2 $ tereo webcast, but Bob Heil is already wrapping it
up at 0047, promoting *next* week to be the best ever, tribute to
George Wright. That was supposed to be *this* week as of *last* week,
so evidently this is a repeat of that instead of new --- they all
start to sound alike. 0049 it`s over to hardsell Tedad, so if really
an hour long must have started circa 2347 Oct 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 16 at 0322, WRNO is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 1580, Oct 16 at 0610 UT, briefly atop CCI jumble, Spanish
super-hype voice actor (SHVA) ID as ``Tigre`` --- that`s KFCS,
Colorado Springs CO, 140 watts non-direxional at night, per NRC AM
Log, referring to FM 94.7. It`s also the closest and by far most
likely of the few USSS on 1580.

However, this is a confusing and convoluted situation. NRC shows the
FM translator for KFCS-1580 is K276GG on 103.1; while the station
group ``Tigre 94.7`` consists of those two stations plus KRYE 94.7.
Presumably KRYE 94.7 is the real originator of all this. WTFDA FM DB
for 94.7 in CO shows KRYE itself is in Beulah, 18 kW as ``La Fiebre``
with Spanish Tejano format. Could ``Tigre`` be confused with similar
sounding ``Fiebre``?? But there`s more. KRYE has a booster -FM1 also
on 94.7 in Pueblo with 2.1 kW. But in Colorado Springs itself on 94.7
there is K234AJ, 84-watt Christian in English relay of KTLF 90.5. With
a separate but probably previous entry for the same except call as
K290AK which would not be 94.7 at all. Where is Beulah? Remote tiny
town SW of Pueblo. Strangely, nothing about KRYE 94.7 here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beulah,_Colorado
But site is not really in Beulah, rather 12 minutes to the south and 2
minutes east, comparing geo coordinates. Ah, for the good ole days of
XEDM Hermosillo on clear channel 1580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 13735, Oct 15 at 1513, no signal from Mini TransAt yacht
race marine weather, neither to Maryland SDR nor UTwente. Had been
recently reported, but maybe now finally in hiatus until race resume
Oct 29 from Canary Island to Guadeloupe (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [and non]. 18119-USB, Oct 15 at 2128, JR7TKG contacting
NZ2S#, Jeff in Spokane, also heard, says they have QSOed several times
before. JR7 gives his call clearly and fonetikaly several times.
QRZ.com: ``JR7TKG Japan flag Japan, Sasaki ("Saki") Toru, Iwate,
Japan`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Oct 15 at 0616, no signal from VON. Now I wish I
had noted every night, but it seems like at least a week since it have
appeared. Past absences sometimes replaced by 9689.9v or 11769.9v, but
no sign of those now altho could be on and not propagating unlike the
bigsig on 7255- when running. A non-log some editors will throw out as
inconsequential, but VON`s absence is more significant than its
presence (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Oct 15 at 1410, K6FRC HIFER beacon is JBA with
call repeating. Allegedly only 1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA. And
standard remark: occasionally audible but only around this daypart,
never other hours I bandscan, so is it 24h or not? If not, why not,
the point of running a beacon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2108 monitoring: confirmed first
broadcasts UT Friday October 15 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850, S9+25 into
Missouri SDR; 7780 S8-S9 and noisy into UTwente SDR. 5850 has a bit of
scratchy noise as via MO and another Kiwi, but NOT on my original
recording, nor direct from 5850 at 0155. 7780 direct at 0155 is VP in
noise S7-S9.

Also confirmed UT Fri Oct 15 at 0330 on WRMI 5985, S8-S9 into Bonaire
after 0328 IS & ID loop with promise to start at ``top of hour`` -- in
India, maybe!

NOT confirmed Fri Oct 15 at 1815 on IRRS SW via Bulgaria 7290. Via
UTwente SDR, carrier is on by tune-in 1813, but as usual, no
modulation cut-on until almost 1816, and it`s NOT WOR, but rock music.
I was expecting this since simulmonitoring via Noale SDR, AM Italia
918 kHz, which was already running the same instead of WOR, and think
I hard a program name as ``weekend show of Radio City``, more music,
// a few seconds apart, past 1820 and 1832 final chex.

Looking at the NEXUS-IBA program sked for Friday after 2000 CEST:
Nothing about 7290 or WOR; besides stream at all times, just 918 is
added during certain evening times, with generic unspecific
programming info. But it and other days of week are updated ``as of 14
May 2021``!! If IRRS have given up 7290 altogether, the Bulgarians are
still turning it on with whatever comes in from the feed line. I don`t
need this frustration, but should I stay on IRRS on the idea that
something is better than nothing, even if totally unreliable?

Next scheduled airing is on 918 only at 2030 UT, and that does succeed
with new WOR 2108. Both earlier and now, there is co-channel QRM,
maybe Spain or some other European, likely to continue or worsen with
wintrish propagation across the continent. But we are well atop, as we
should be a few km away from transmitter. But further? The NEXUS-IBA
``May`` sked now shows WOR Sat 2000 CEST on 918 only, our ex-time, and
again nothing about 7290 SW.

Confirmed Friday Oct 15 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+15/20 into TN SDR
showing offset +23 Hz. VG but barely avoids some ACI from 5945
Romanian folk music. Next:

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 15 at 1408, no signal from WBCQ SuperStition =
World`s Last Chance. Has been quite sporadic, unreliable, tho when on
sounds fine. Are there operational, financial, or technical problems?

9333, Oct 15 at 1510, JBA carrier, which I never detect when 9330 WBCQ
be on, so suspect it`s related, exciter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Oct 16 from 0000, WBCQ webcast of
`AAAWWW`. I listen to the opening and check a few spots later. Both
webcast and quick check of 7490 on a TN SDR are dead air for about a
minute, coming up only after Allan`s interjexions are done, tsk. I
notice that the W8BUG Kiwi has labeled 7490 ``WBCQ Wacko Radio`` ---
not by me! Own webcast is distorted worse than ever; is no one paying
attention to it? Angela first advocates saving the rain forest -- I
can certainly agree on that! Allan says he`s tired of talking about
politix, but Angela rebuxe as it`s only about our freedom! At 0021
Allan is complaining about the bugs in the 420-D = the SuperStition
transmitter. Main problem seems to be its broadband 1 kW amplifier,
which is too complicated to operate, instead of on/off switch and gain
control -- noooo, it`s gotta be all-digital, which keeps causing the
transmitter to mess up. 0024 a call from Rabishu in SW Colorado who is
getting an S3 signal, is glad A&A show up on air every week and wants
to mention a ham net. 0058 replies to complaint of distortion; will
have to put a limiter so the encoder is not overmodulated, apologizes.
Still going past 0102, after his own canned ID interrupts him at 0100.
Hope Hal Turner is next, since he notified of his own computer
problems. Prayer; 0102.7 JIP Hal. No report in yet from John Carver
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Fri Oct 15 at 2200 on WRMI 9955 webcast, I make a
point of listening to `Satanic Shortwave`, apparently the same episode
which aired two and four weeks ago, and not clear whether it will
continue twice-monthly. I tune in a few seconds late, but never hear
any attribution to Kelly Bogues a.k.a. Rabishu as producer of this.
Lots of music in first part, and talk by a maleish robovoice. 2204
song outro: ``Give me no man`s land``. 2205 next song, ``Satan takes a
holiday``. 2211 reading excerpt from ``The Church of Satan`` by
Blanche Barton, about the guy who went on to found the ``church`` of
that name; organ music. 2218, purpose of this program to explain what
Satanism is, and is not: Satanists are born and not made; it is not
devil-worship. [O, then maybe they should find a different name??].
Refers to a website for more info about it. 2220 a bit of German and
then a ``sermon`` in English with menacing music; 2226 martial music
only to 2229:30 over without any further talk. I am not convinced by
this any more than by pro-gospel huxters. Perhaps the object be really
to troll the latter with something even ``worse`` than Atheism? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
