** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed June 16 at 1450 UT tune-in via
Pardinho, Brasil KiwiSDR, LRA36 in quite well, with song at S7.
Side-tuning to 15475.00-USB, we can confirm there is a carrier,
reduced, but in SAM mode not enough to register an exact frequency
offset. Usual canned ID which says ``Nacional, Antártida Argentina, en
todo el país, la radio pública``, song; 1456 contact info for QSL,
then a long announcement about something? 1503 `NAA` ID, this week in
world history, for dates June 14, 15, 17, 18. 1506 music. 1512 NAA ID,
music; two quick QRMs of rapid clix overriding. 1522 quick weather
info including today`s high of 2 grados (not bad for midwinter in
Anta, above freezing!); contact info including whatsapp number, phone.
1524 reminds us of Saturday repeat, now fading down into noise level;
1525 Antártida song until 1526*.

Earlier I asked if anyone had the lyrix to it. Manuel Méndez, Spain
replied with as much of it as he could copy. Some parts are missing as
with [...], notably the opening stanza. No doubt there will be many
more chances for native speakers to hear it, or examine old
recordings.

``Hi Glenn, this is what I could understand from the Base Esperanza
song:

"...Pero el amor a la patria es más fuerte en Base Esperanza,
es por eso este homenaje, para que llene de gloria,
a todos los corazones que llevan en la memoria.
Lágrimas y pañuelos de adiós en la dársena norte dejó
el Irízar*, ese día que partió.

Qué esté atenta y centinela, la base Belgrano 2,
y la base Primavera....

También quiero yo nombrar, porque las llevó el mar,
a Belgrano y Belgrano 3, y la ciencia que nos dió su obra,
el amor por nuestro pueblo, el respeto a la bandera,
por el Comando Antártico Vida, en el confín de la tierra.
Con la fuerza de los vientos, ya salió de Palomar,
con rumbo a Base Marambio, el Hércules, al sur de ....
Lágrimas y pañuelos de adios, en la dársena norte dejó
el Irízar, ese día que partió, que partió."

*El ARA Almirante Irízar (Q-5) (RHAI) es un rompehielos perteneciente
a la Armada Argentina.```

And here is a Google translation I, gh, have slightly improved:

"... But the love of the country is stronger in Base Esperanza,
that is why this tribute, so that it fills with glory,
all the hearts that they carry in their memory.
Tears and goodbye handkerchiefs in the north dock left by
the Irízar *, that day it left.

Be vigilant and on guard, the Belgrano 2 base,
and the Primavera base ....

I also want to name, because the sea took them, the bases
Belgrano and Belgrano 3, and the science that their work gave us,
love for our people, respect for the flag,
by the Antarctic Life Command, at the end of the earth.

With the force of the winds, it has already left Palomar,
Heading to Marambio Base, Hercules, south of ....

Tears and goodbye handkerchiefs in the north dock left by
the Irízar *, that day it left."

* The ARA Almirante Irízar (Q-5) (RHAI) is an icebreaker belonging to
the Argentine Navy.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 332-MCW kHz, June 16 at 0601 UT, ND beacon dash and QT from
Thunder Bay is audible over nearby IC Wichita; the two with very
different audio frequencies, IC higher. I still suffer high local
noise level but the storm noise is not too bad tonight, nothing
nearby. One other Canadian is copied, as these two high-power make it
if any do:

248-MCW kHz, June 16 at 0612 UT, NDB dash and WG, from WinnipeG (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Wed June 16 at 1503 check via UTwente, no
signal today from new clandestine as reported yesterday. Perhaps it
will be on Tuesdays only. As for the language, Arthur Pozner said:

``This was confirmed today in several Asian countries, the language
used is Urdu. Target area is Kashmir. Another clandestine broadcast;
and the "Uganda" program was cancelled several days ago!`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255-MCW kHz, June 16 at 0613 UT, ND beacon SW in
Stillwater is gone again. It had been regular whenever checked every
night since it came back March 17 after a 5+ week absence. Still off
at 1437 UT daytime check.

341-MCW kHz, June 16 at 1438 UT, ND beacon EI, Enid, is back! Can this
be coincidental just when SW 255 has vanished? Had been gone since
April 16. Checked every night. 25 watts only a few miles away, but a
struggle to copy, tipped by presence of a carrier first (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, June 16 at 0559 UT, KUCO-FM Edmond/OKC amid
restored music relayed from The Classical Station, WCPE, foregoes its
own ID and lets the WCPE + satellites station IDs come thru after
low-frequency cue tone clearly audible on my radio speaker into my
ears; as KUCO`s device is out for repair. As in previous report,
yesterday, KUCO was looping nothing but its own IDs all night. Yet to
learn of any MS DX of it following my tip (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA [non]. The annual BBCWS mid-winter special of greetings
to inhabitants of British Antarctic stations occurs every year on June
21 at 2130-2200 UT --- AND planned frequencies are tried one week
earlier at 2130-2145, i.e. Monday June 14. Dan Ferguson got the
frequencies, so I was ready for them via Pardinho SP Brasil KiwiSDR,
as there aren`t any in Antarctica; but this one gets LRA36 well.

7305, Woofferton cuts on at 2130 atop else? promo, news HL, 2132 The
Connexion, i.e. testing with what`s on BBCWS now; S9+15/25
6170, Ascension, S9+15/25 equally good
9505, Woofferton, S9+20 but somewhat lower mod, splash de weak 9500?
6035, UAE no signal

Direct to OK, 9505 JBA carrier; 6170 & 6035 nil, 7305 nil or JBA
carrier. They all went off circa 2145*. Something is still on 7305;
Aoki shows CNR1. It was not a problem in SP while BBC was on. 9500 QRM
would also be CNR1. 73, (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, June 15 at 0629, RHC English is S9+20/30 but JBM; 6100
is S9+10/20 and merely undermodulated. 6060, 6000 and 5040 are all
off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13635 & 13765 approx., June 15 at 1417, F# FMish spurblobs,
only VP today out of RHC 13700-AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 11850, June 15 at 0633, African language S9 but high
noise level. It`s DW in Hausa via FRANCE at 0630-0700 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. At 1513 UT June 15 posted to the WOR iog:
``[WOR] 15170 IRRS Kashmiri --- 15170, from 1459 June 15, new IRRS
clandestine for Kashmir is huge signal into UTwente, low bass talker
with noise, music background, occasional English terms mixed into
Kashmiri? Now`s the time to hear it until 1530; Tuesdays only? Or
precursor of regular broadcast. Glenn Hauser`` A reply:

``Recording using the U. Twente SDR receiver. I was in a Teams meeting
but I could hear in the background what I think was the standard
Muslim greeting at the start ("As-salamu alaikum"). If I can find the
time, I'll review the recording to see what else might be gleaned. --
Richard Langley`` --- then my full report:

15170, Tue June 15 at *1457.5, carrier on, S9+10 into UTwente SDR.
1459 fragment of song, quick IRRS sign-on ID; 1500 drumming and talk
in presumed Kashmiri, very deep bass voice, starting with Salaam
aleikum. Now up to S9+25. Occasional English words/terms/names as I
listen to the whole thing, such as: Hindustani, Kashmiri, Islamic
majority, Islamabad; 1506 law & order. There is constant music
background and mike noise, in the wind? Or being manhandled. 1510
Kashmiri Civitas -- as Kai Ludwig had suggested; with strumming. 1514
brief switch to a different voice with throat-clearings over and over,
and different background music. Soon back to deep voice. 1524 switches
to halting English but very hard to understand: social platforms,
decide future, want to be independent, decide as a nation, should be
part of Pakistan or independent state, people of Kashmir will decide,
autonomy, house of parliament, shopkeepers donating, Islam ready for
anything. 1526 back to Kashmiri; chopped off air at 1529*.

Tnx to Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS for advance info June 14 about this
broadcast as in my previous report; it had been registered with HFCC
as starting last week on Tuesdays only, 79 degree azimuth from
somewhere. Kai Ludwig had replied:

``Remember "Radio Free Kashmir", which appeared in May 2020 and was
supposed to have a weekly broadcast on Sundays, 0330-0430 on 7355.
This was a shortlived venture, in fact I'm not sure if it really made
it on air at all. But it was reported as IRRS-brokered, too, and so
the question at hand is obvious. These broadcasts in 2020 came (or
were supposed to come) from https://kashmircivitas.com
Kai`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. Altho heard Sunday June 13 for hours and hours on
9890, R. Yoruba via Woofferton was missing Mon June 15; and also Tue
June 16 when checked via UTwente at 2329. Meanwhile, explained June 15
with more about it from Alan Pennington, UK, on the WOR iog:

``Re: [WOR] [bdxc-news] New station broadcasting to Nigeria? This
station seems to use the name "Radio Ominira Yoruba" ("Radio Freedom
Yoruba" in English) on its Facebook page, set up on 3rd June.

On their Facebook page (Radio/Tv Ominira Yoruba) they posted yesterday
(14 June) that broadcasts will be every Saturdays and Sunday on 9890

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, June 15 at 0416, Station YHWH is S8/S9+5 into
Corinne, northern Utah SDR; tnx to tip from Eric Fetters-Walp in WA on
the WOR iog. Rick Barton, AZ, was also hearing it (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. June 15 at 0510 UT I posted to the WTFDA gg:

``90.1 KUCO-FM OKC is stuck with legal IDs looping every 34 seconds,
instead of WCPE overnight relay of classical music. First noted before
0540 UT June 15 and still going past 0600. A de facto MS DX test! Wake
up, tune in if you have a clear channel, record, as this may go on all
night. Also probably applies to satellites KBCW 91.9 and KCSC 95.9,
all three mentioned in the ID. 73, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` --- a reply:

Neal [sic], Thanks for this tip on the impromptu FM DX Test! (Hey,
wait—that’s MY gig!) I’m recording overnight on 90.1 and running RDS
Spy as well, hoping to log this one. Really appreciate the heads up.
Fingers crossed. Everyone bear in my mind that meteor scatter is often
best in the early morning hours up till about 10 AM. So don’t stop
rolling at sunrise. 73, Les Rayburn, N1LF, Maylene, AL 35114``

``Who`s Neal? This came from me, Glenn. KUCO tells me this ran until
morning shift at 1000 UT. ``The tone controller has died``, i.e. low
audio frequency cues from WCPE to insert local IDs. Will want to know
if Les or anyone got it by MS. Glenn Hauser, OK``

And here`s my correspondence later with KUCO, Brad Ferguson, mgr.:

``Brad, Sorry to report that your automatic legal ID was looping every
34 seconds from before when I tuned in at 12:40 this morning, past
1:20 when I turned off. Had I awakened later I was set to check it
again, but after 6:00 it was back to normal. I fear it ran like that
most of the night. Obviously there is no one in downtown OKC
overnight, but I would hope some of you had remote control access to
take care of problems like that. Or a fail-safe to replace with local
music, or something. Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid``

``Yes, I got us back when I came in a little after 5:00. Chris thinks
the tone controller has died so we will run tonight without our IDs
and he will come with his tester tomorrow. BF`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 5800, June 15 at 0627, S9+10/20 open carrier, once again
surely from WRMI which is the only station on 5800 earlier; late on a
Tuesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E MUF mostly below 88 MHz on June 16 but some spots
higher; several bandchex here don`t get anything but Okies on openish
92.1, 92.9, etc. So I decide to settle for 10m ham beacons, most of
which have been heard before, unlike hundreds of other CW in the WJ5O
roster. I may not have copied full spiels beyond IDs.

Corinne, northern Utah SDR; tnx to tip from Eric Fetters-Walp in WA on
the WOR iog. Rick Barton, AZ, was also hearing it (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. June 15 at 0510 UT I posted to the WTFDA gg:

``90.1 KUCO-FM OKC is stuck with legal IDs looping every 34 seconds,
instead of WCPE overnight relay of classical music. First noted before
0540 UT June 15 and still going past 0600. A de facto MS DX test! Wake
up, tune in if you have a clear channel, record, as this may go on all
night. Also probably applies to satellites KBCW 91.9 and KCSC 95.9,
all three mentioned in the ID. 73, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` --- a reply:

Neal [sic], Thanks for this tip on the impromptu FM DX Test! (Hey,
wait—that’s MY gig!) I’m recording overnight on 90.1 and running RDS
Spy as well, hoping to log this one. Really appreciate the heads up.
Fingers crossed. Everyone bear in my mind that meteor scatter is often
best in the early morning hours up till about 10 AM. So don’t stop
rolling at sunrise. 73, Les Rayburn, N1LF, Maylene, AL 35114``

``Who`s Neal? This came from me, Glenn. KUCO tells me this ran until
morning shift at 1000 UT. ``The tone controller has died``, i.e. low
audio frequency cues from WCPE to insert local IDs. Will want to know
if Les or anyone got it by MS. Glenn Hauser, OK``

And here`s my correspondence later with KUCO, Brad Ferguson, mgr.:

``Brad, Sorry to report that your automatic legal ID was looping every
34 seconds from before when I tuned in at 12:40 this morning, past
1:20 when I turned off. Had I awakened later I was set to check it
again, but after 6:00 it was back to normal. I fear it ran like that
most of the night. Obviously there is no one in downtown OKC
overnight, but I would hope some of you had remote control access to
take care of problems like that. Or a fail-safe to replace with local
music, or something. Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid``

``Yes, I got us back when I came in a little after 5:00. Chris thinks
the tone controller has died so we will run tonight without our IDs
and he will come with his tester tomorrow. BF`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

surely from WRMI which is the only station on 5800 earlier; late on a

** U S A. Sporadic E MUF mostly below 88 MHz on June 16 but some spots
higher; several bandchex here don`t get anything but Okies on openish
92.1, 92.9, etc. So I decide to settle for 10m ham beacons, most of
which have been heard before, unlike hundreds of other CW in the WJ5O

UNIDENTIFIED. 25950, June 15 at 1954, open carrier with Es fading,
prompting me to post:

``[WOR] Broadcast aux on 25-26 MHz --- Now at sporadic E peak, keep an
ear out for broadcast auxiliaries in the 25-26 MHz band. Very little
activity lately and most of these now in EiBi may well be off for a
few years. Typically they are turned on only when needed, such as
``talkback`` during a remote event, so hosts may get non-delayed
program audio.

Now around 2000 UT June 15, when WWV is also in on 25000, I have an
open carrier on 25950, which once was used in Denver. Usually FM mode
but without mod it may seem like AM. EiBi:

** KASHMIR [non]. Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS writes me June 14:

``Hi Glenn, These broadcasts to Africa have now been ended by requests
of the sponsoring organisation.

However, we have a new broadcast on 15170 each Tuesday from 1500-1530
beamed to Kashmir. Any reception report will be welcome, and we will
pass it on to the broadcaster for answer according to our privacy
policy (GDPR applies to EU citizens) at

We will also issue our own QSL card, but we have a huge backlog, so
anyone please bear with us. Bests. Alfredo``

Tuesday only at 1500-1530 on 15170 is the HFCC registered one with 300
kW at 79 degrees from ``Milano``, while the Ugandan ones were
allegedly at 149 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9890, Radio Yoruba, 19-24 UT via Woofferton UK:

At 1958 UT June 13, Alan Pennington posted to BDXC-UK iog:

``There were a few tweets on Twitter last week about a test
transmission Sun 6 June 2100-2200 on 9890 (or 98.90 kHz) with the tag
#Yorubaradio e.g.
"We are now ready for the test transmission. It will take place this
Sunday 6th June and will run from 2100-2200 UTC. The frequency of the
transmission will be 9890 kHz and this is the frequency we would aim
to use for the full broadcast. #YorubaRadio." (Yoruba Nation on
Twitter June 5) This must be the same station on 9890 at the moment
(1945 UTC). 73, Alan``

With a jpg attached, which I have transcribed into text:

``RADIO YORUBA 98.90 KHZ [sic]
BROUGHT TO YOU BY:
WHITE LION [emoji]
Comrade Olayomi Koiki

#Radio_Yoruba to be launched on 6/6/2021
Thanks to Comrade Olayomi Koiki
(AKA #White_Lion) 98.90 KHz

He made this possible. Now the gospel of Yoruba
Nation liberation would continue to be preached for all
to accept the message and bear us witness that
Yoruba Nation must be free.

``God bless Oloye Sunday Igboho for volunteering
himself to lead us out of this fraudulent contraption

I was wondering if any of the broadcast would be in English? I am not
listening to Yoruba hour after hour, but at 2322 check, 9890 is being
narrated in heavily accented English plus music background. Via
UTwente. At 2358 anthem? 2359 brief talk and music, off 2359.5* The
signal direct had been JBA (gh)

Some earlier discussion of this on the WOR iog:

``9890 June 12 2155 UNKNOWN ENGLAND in Yoruba (?). Does anyone already
have name information or who is the broadcast going to? Very good
signal here. 250 kW information and 170° azimuth. (Jorge Freitas-B)

``Thanks, Ron. Will listen out for them today. The desire of
independence for Yorubaland is not dissimilar to that of the Igbos in
Biafraland. Like many former British colonies, different ethnic
groupings of people (some with long-standing animosities) were forced
together to make a "new" country. Richard B. Langley``

``Hi Richard, Funny you should mention Biafra, as yesterday in London,

them!

``Thanks, Ron. And we remember that the Igbos had some clandestine
transmissions not so long ago including Radio Biafra:
https://shortwavearchive.com/archive/radio-biafra
You probably have similar recordings.

And a decent signal into the U. Twente SDR receiver. At 1945, noted
mentions of Yoruba and snippets of the Yoruba National Anthem.

And later, UT June 14:
``I only listened to it in the Yoruba language. The signal here for me
is good.

Eric Fetters-Walp: ``I've been listening off and on since 2100 UT,
when I could clearly detect a signal on 9890 out west here in Lake
Stevens, Washington state, but only bits of audio every few moments.
Starting around 2335, the audio has faded in enough to be consistently
audible (music now as of 2340). The talking's no longer in English,
however; back to presumed Yoruba`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
