** U S A. My first sporadic E FM DX opening of the season/year, May 2,
all times UT!! interrupts my listening to `Feminine Fusion` at
2105-2205 on 90.1 KUCO, on the DX-390. Normally the only weaker QRM is
KHCC Radio Kansas, Hutchinson, but:

2140, 90.1, ``South Carolina Public Radio``, could be program credit
on some other P.R. station; but has Es fading. With KUCO nulled as
much as possible I am also getting KHCC vs this one, KHCC with
`Thistle & Shamrock` which comes from NC, not SC. Also an NPR news
break which would not be during T&S. It so happens there are two SCPRs
on 90.1, Greenville in the NW corner and Conway in the E corner, as
researched later in the WTFDA FM Database, inserting those listings
with each possible log:

WHMC-FM 90.1 CONWAY SC NEWS/TALK SOUTH CAROLINA PUBLIC RADIO 63.0
213.0 33-56-58 79-06-31 FFFF WHMC - Public [1076 mi] [OR:]
WEPR 90.1 GREENVILLE SC NEWS/TALK/CLASSICAL SOUTH CAROLINA PUBLIC
RADIO 84.0 361.0 34-56-29 82-24-38 A6CF WEPR 90.1 SC Public Radio News
Music News [875 mi]

Most of our non-comm FM channels are blocked or semi-blocked, so I
hope the MUF is going above 92 and start hunting on the DX-398 I also
have at hand, with whip antenna only constantly being manipulated.
There are lots of OK & KS fringe stations on ``open`` channels which
have to be recognized, minimized or avoided.

As FM Es continues during the next hour, 22-23 UT, I also have to miss
`Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` on WBCQ with Mongolian throat-singing which
I was really looking forward to; and there is no way to hear it later
--- except the first half repeat Monday at 2300-2330.

2146: 92.1, C&W music, ID as ``--- 92``, Es fading; 2159 almost time
for ID when a YL gospel huxter overrides, but I do get a partial ID of
W,P,H at 2200, and Fox ``news``. 2202 the g.h. QRMer says it`s still
April as she starts preaching about Fools, especially males you may be
married to. The C&W one is certainly:

WPEH-FM 92.1 LOUISVILLE GA COUNTRY THE PEACH 6.0 91.0 33-00-48
82-23-33 // WPEH-1420 [908 mi]
as it`s the only 92.1 country in SC or GA. What about a nearby g.h.?
Maybe this, the only religious teaching in English on 92.1 in GA:

WHHR 92.1 VIENNA GA RELIGIOUS TEACHING FREEDOM RADIO FM 5.1 106.0
32-09-16 83-47-55 [856 mi]

2203: 93.1, YL in London sends her love; rocker? Have to watch out for
Pratt KS semi. Not the ESPN one below.

2205: 92.7, strong rock, soon fades. Only two full power in GA:

WKKZ 92.7 DUBLIN GA HOT AC 92.7 WKKZ 50.0 127.0 32-31-21 82-54-00
WSSI 92.7 DARIEN GA CLASSIC HITS 92.7 SSI 10.0 123.0 31-11-40 81-29-30
[892, 1003 mi]

2209: 90.3, finally one with RDS, which is pretty finicky even with
strong signals many of which do not employ it. The thing is, I get a
readout lock only when tuned to 90.2! between two Okies: UNIVERSITY /
SAVANNAH / WHCJ, and a jazz DJ:

WHCJ 90.3 SAVANNAH GA VARIETY THE VOICE OF SAVANNAH STATE UNIVERSITY
6.0 68.0 32-01-28 81-03-23 6761 WHCJ Savannah State University WHCJ
Savannah State University No Program Type or Undefined [1003 mi]

2212: 93.1, plug ESPN podcasts, ESPN Radio, ESPN plus, ESPN daily. I
think it may be an ESPN affiliate. 2228: sports talk again with hum:

WWKM 93.1 ROCHELLE GA SPORTS MIDDLE GEORGIA'S ESPN 4.7 81.0 31-56-54
83-26-02 // WWKM 93.1, WXKO-1150 // W226BZ 103.1 [879 mi]

WWKM also has a co-channel translator BTW:

W226BZ WXKO 1150 93.1 MACON GA SPORTS MIDDLE GEORGIA`S ESPN 0.0 0.12
0.0 206.0 32-45-13 83-33-46 // WWKM 93.1, WXKO-1150 // W226BZ 103.1
[all the others in this report except 101.5 have same H & V kW,
meters, so duplications removed]

2217: 93.1, vs WWKM: ``E-93 FM.com`` promo, and for plasma; 2218 ``AT
40`` mentions, as in American Top-40 program:

WEAS-FM 93.1 SPRINGFIELD GA URBAN CONTEMPORARY E-93 96.64 299.0
32-02-45 81-20-27 5F4A WEAS Song / Artist Rhythm and Blues [983
mi]

2219: 93.3, ``The Joy FM``, so gospel, fade to C&W, Okie?

WVFJ-FM 93.3 GREENVILLE GA CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN THE JOY FM NETWORK
38.0 491.0 33-05-10 84-46-10 8CA7 [782 mi]

2231: 93.7, music occasionally overrides KSPI Stillwater OK which is
in a live silly baseball game. With GA still the PTA, most likely
this, the only full power 93.7 rocker:
WPEZ 93.7 JEFFERSONVILLE GA ADULT CONTEMPORARY Z 93.7 100.0 207.0
32-45-12 83-33-46 [865 mi]

2234: 92.1, ad for wiregrass.edu, a tech school; 279-896-7679 maybe
for next ad, ``Talk 92.1``, so it`s this, as Adel is just N of I-75
from Wiregrass main campus Valdosta:

WDDQ 92.1 ADEL GA TALK TALK 92.1 2.6 154.1 31-08-15 83-23-41 //
WSFB-1490 [905 mi]
WDDQ interrupted by music in Spanish, probably already WJXR as below.

2237: 95.1, RDS with song titles, ``FRIEND / KELLY BL/ ACKBEAR``; 2239
YL DJ ID ``95.1 WAPE, Jaxonvil`s #1 music station``:

WAPE-FM 95.1 JACKSONVILLE FL HD CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO THE BIG APE
100.0 300.0 30-19-22 81-38-34 5632 WAPE title & Artist Now Playing
Title & Artist Top 40 [1024 mi]

2240: 96.5 music in Spanish probably WOEX as below

2241: 101.5, a local note: constant RDS only as KOCD. Spanglish ID as
``Salvación Radio Network``, 405-AC phone

KOCD KWDW-LP 101.5 OKEENE OK Spanish RELIGIOUS RADIO SALVACIÓN 14.0
0.0 88.0 0.0 36-07-11 98-15-45 352F kocd LIBERTAD EN CRISTO MINISTRIES
[this one has horizontal power only][47 mi]

2242: 104.5, financial talk over Woodward, Okie, likely this as skip
has shifted into north FL:

WOKV-FM 104.5 ATLANTIC BEACH FL HD NEWS/TALK NEWS 104.5 WOKV 98.8
309.0 30-16-34 81-33-53 7AB9 104.5 WOKV, JACKSONVILLE'S NEWS TALK
104.5 104.5 WOKV Jacksonville's News and Talk News [1037 mi]

2244: 105.9, two stations mixing, talk and music: probably:

WOCL 105.9 DELAND FL HD CLASSIC HITS 105.9 SUNNY FM 96.0 484.0
28-55-10 81-19-08 79DF Title & Artist Sunny 105.9 Rock [1088

83-13-54 8CB8 WVGA newstalk1059.fm [926 mi]

2247: 92.1, romantic music in Spanish, IDs for 3 stations, mentions
MacClenny 92.1, an AM 1160 and an FM translator; `` Latina, tu
musica``; another ID for WJXR, W248-- 97.5 in Callahan and 1160 in
Callahan:

WJXR 92.1 MACCLENNY FL Spanish TROPICAL LATINA 92.1 25.0 100.0
30-17-54 82-00-55 [1001 mi]

2258: 96.5, Spanish romantic music, partial RDS: ``OLVIDES / MUSICA
Y``, 2300 ``Exitos 96.5``, ``palabra clave: amor``:

WOEX 96.5 ORLANDO FL HD Spanish CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO EXITOS 96.5

1-800-411-PAIN No Program Type or Undefined Ex WDBO-FM [1102]

I keep tuning until 2318 but the opening seems over. Finally checking
6M DXMAP at 2335, MUFs are just below 88 at 83, 84 MHz. But still at
0145 May 3, plenty of Es <88 MHz over E and W USA.

Note: I do not count stations, states, or anything, so whether or not
a log be 100% definite does not matter; I have merely done my best to
research available info, to report as fully as possible what happened

** CANADA. 244-MCW kHz, May 2 at 0552 UT, dash and TH, 1000-watt ND
beacon at Thompson MB. Logged before but not often, last Dec & Jan but
not since; time is running out per dxinfocentre.com:

``244 TH CAN MB THOMPSON 1000 55 47 40 -97 51 15 TO BE DECOMMISSIONED
2021-08-12``

Thompson is at/near the end of the road in north central MB, beyond
The Pas and Flin Flon, 2152 km = 1337 statute miles, almost due north
from Enid.

Also two other Canadians, only Manitobans tonight; if any Canadian,
can make it best vs storm noise levels, it`s WG:

248-MCW kHz, May 2 at 0551, dash and WG, 1000-watt NDB at Winnipeg.

284-MCW kHz, May 2 at 0549, dash and QD, 500-watt NDB at The Pas,
Manitoba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 9360, May 2 at 1711, S2-S5 in Chinese; probably CNR1
jammer; or RFA Chinese via Kuwait at 17-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13645, May 2 at 1707, hilife music, S8 fading to S5.
It`s the Swahili hour of CRI via Bamako II, MALI; followed by another
hour in Hausa. Wonder if Swahili service be another one filled by
nothing but African music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9615, May 2 at 1721, S5-S7 in Korean, then some English
so it`s a lesson including words muscle and coffee, bits of music. BBC
Korean is scheduled 1530-1830 via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, also aimed
onward USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: confirmed UT Sun
May 2 from 0320 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+10. Next:

** U S A. 5970, May 2 at 0558, WEWN Spanish, RCM, is missing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sun May 2 at 1709, no signal from WWCR-2, altho the
other three are audible, the uppers with a bit of sporadic E: 15825,
13845 and 9980. 12160 is supposed to start at 1500 after 7490, which
is not on now either. 12050 WEWN is poorly audible at similar
megameter distance.

It so happens that per the April 1 program sked, Sun 17-18 on 12160 is
supposed to carry The Overcomer. I wonder if that have expired and so
turned off the transmitter rather than fill with something else.

Reminds me, I have been intending to quote the following, as all kinds
of contradictory info has been coming out about whether or how far in
advance TOM is paid up at various stations:

``[WOR] Glitch at WRMI? Apr 25 at 5:16 AM --- Both 5850 and 5950 had
dead air at 0507 tune in, but a few seconds later, there was an
announcement from the Overcomer Ministry that the programs were paid
up until October, and what happens after that is solely dependent on
funding. Dead air again at 0509 and still so at 0516 UTC. Dead air
continued until 0541:58 when Overcomer resumed. 73, Walt Salmaniw,
Victoria BC`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat May 1 at 1438, LRA36 is on and into
Brasil SDRs, one of them slightly noisier than another. First talking
about current events such as the Iran Nuclear Deal [should that be
capitalised?]. I`m busy with breakfast, etc., so not listening
continuously, but 1530 still there, S5 in Antártida song;
1538 IDs in 4 languages mentioning Base Esperanza. 1552 typical canned
ID, ``Nacional Antártida Argentina, La Radio Pública``. 1555.5 another
ID and at 16009. 1623 still on at S1-S3; 1650 comes in stronger,
music; 1658 eQSL info; sign-off Saturday broadcast, so this part is
not a Wednesday playback. Mentions being part of the Ministry of
Defense, i.e. military, not civilian as Wikipedia claims. 1700
Antártida song, now S5 and does not really close down yet. 1704 & 1708
other music 1732 ``sign-on`` again with Spanish, German, English,
Russian?/Korean? announcement. 1737 Antda. song again, email and FB,
frequencies 15476 and FM 96.7 at the base, max temp today 2C, couldn`t
catch the min. Off abruptly at 1740* and still of by 1744 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, May 1 at 0642, JBA carrier; not in a full 9
kHz bandscan which would now be too late for Eurafrica, and too early
for DU/FE, but just right for R. Kiribati some two hours after its
sunset. Distancefromto.net cannot handle computations from London,
Kiritimati, or Christmas Island, or Kiribati, instead leading to the
far western isles of Kiribati, to the UK or even Australia! My NGS
Globe when it was part of the Line Islands shows Xmas about 4500
statute miles from Enid or 3900 nautical miles, or 7250 km. I can`t
imagine this JBA carrier being anything else, save for some deliberate
spoiler on the same frequency closer such as Tucson in the same
direxion, which is 250 degrees, as I once confirmed but not lately. If
propagable, a spoiler from the exact opposite direxion would have to
be from Philadelphia to Western Sahara into central Nigeria (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11905, May 1 at 1839, anti-Christ pirate, Station
YHWH is JBA at W7RNA Phœnix remote, and at 1853 JBA carrier here, tnx
to tip from Rick Barton in AZ who was hearing him better at 1815. YHWH
has shown up before circa midday on various 25mb frequencies. Walt
Salmaniw says he was off by 1930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 1 at 2200, VOT English is on today vs RTTY. The
Kiwi at KB0FX escapes it by LSB tuning altho before on my own rigs the
RTTY has inevitably spanned both sides. Mostly music later in hour, IS
keeps going, 2259 ID in German, and the spurious German program keeps
going until someone wakes up and turns it off at 2319.8*. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: as often, missed
due to sleeping the May 1 Sat 1300 on WRMI 15770, so hope to see some
confirmation of it later.

Confirmed Sat May 1 from 1800:38 on IRRS Bulgaria 7290 via UTwente
SDR, very strong and loud without much QRM. Also Challenger Radio on
new 918 kHz from Villa Estense, Italy, via the neighboring Noale SDR.
I was listening to both before 1800: at 1750. 918 in English about
ballet, steady S9+18; 7290 still weak Chinese. By 1757, 7290 open
carrier is on at S9+25. At 1759, 918 stops unknown program to play the
IRRS `Aïda` march theme with no upcut. 7290 JIPs it upcutting at
1759:47, quick IRRS sign-on, some pause and WOR from its start but not
synchronized via these two very different routes. Now it`s S9+25/35 on
7290 via UTwente. Ends properly before 1830.

Also confirmed Sat May 1 from 1949 tune-in until finished at 2002.8 on
WA0RCR, 1860-AM via KB0FX remote, S9+8. It was skipping frequently and
I hope this is an SDR defect, not that way out of Wentzville. Which
BTW must interrupt for own ID every dekaminute, and also removes my
opening billboard as too musical for ham radio. Next:

** CHAD [and non]. 12050, April 30 at 2002, R. Ndarason International
in presumed Kanuri is almost as strong as RCM, WEWN in Spanish. Quite
a collision here making SAH of 1 Hz, but who cares? RNI is 152 degrees
from Woofferton while WEWN is 155 from Vandiver. IIRC, RNI used to be
via Ascension which may have been more of a problem in WEWN LAm target
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, April 30 at 2245, somepirate is already on
tho Mystery Pirate Radio has publicized another set of Voice of Pancho
Villa shows to start at 2300. This one is S3-S5 talking about standing
wave ratio, music. 2256 DJ likes Patsy Cline and plays her greatest
hit; 2259 ``Big John``, 2303 pause, off? No, back with ``Hello, Emmy
Lou``. 2305 ``You are listening to ---`` but I can`t copy the name.

At 2314 I switch from own R75 to NA5B remote in MD, where this is
S8-S9 with songs; 2317 ``Wheels``, Zeke ID. Says he and wife have both
been shot and won`t wear masks going out to eat. Nothing digital ready
to play? 2318 Zekey`s Attic [Zichi?] is ``relinquishing frequency`` to
another pirate, steady noise but not SSTV, and off*. More:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80986.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, April 30 at *2320, Mystery Pirate Radio
comes on late after Zekey finished. E mail address. Voice of Pancho
Villa theme, S6-S7, signature wild laughter and exaggerated
Mexi-accent (I hope the XEs are not offended?) Immediately starts
invoking a ``Glenn Hauser`` character, 1-900-PAYGLENN. Audio is rather
distorted. Glenn is a girl? 2327 1-800-PAYGLENN [Note: PHONY]. IDs in
real Spanish between segments; at 2342 says 1998 follows, skit about
Clinton and Lewinsky. 2349, year 2000: Tom Kneitel can`t be here,
because ---. 2354, year 2001(?), this segment with QRM, co-channel
talk about something else: another pirate or produxion mixture?

UT May 1, continuing, 0000 the VPV from 2002y, CCI gone. Stuff I have
heard before and reported anyway in too much detail. Now I am
distracted by AAAWWW panned to one ear and MPR/VPV to the other. See
USA: WBCQ. 0016 MPR address; 0019 it`s off after just about one hour
from late start. Many more reports here:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925V-AM, May 1 at *0035 another pirate carrier
comes on same frequency still tuned via NA5B remote for Mystery until
0019*. 0037 starts rock music, but distorted; carrier is wobbling
severely, unlistenable in SSB mode. SAM carrier offset jumps around
plus 74/63/42 Hz within a few seconds. 0040 DJ about it being Friday
night, ``Light My Fire``. 0045 ID sounds like ``Ambient? Radio, 6925``
0054 acknowledging listeners in PA, KY, Indonesia. 0100 ``Million
Dollar Weekend Show``, refers to listeners on HFU. These say it`s Yeah
Man Radio:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, May 1 at 0100, Mystery Pirate Radio is
supposed to repeat the Voice of Pancho Villa show via a station in the
West, while 6925-USB earlier was from the East. So now I bring up a
northern Utah remote, but accidentally in LSB so hear only traces at
first. 0106 in USB there it is underway, S9+10/15 referring to
Oklahoma, sounds like Beevis & Butthead about visiting ``gh``, but
then it`s a YL knocking on his door. Another episode I`ve heard
before. 0109 Spanish intro as one for 1996y to follow. 0112 back to
own R75 where it`s S9+10, (and no 6925). VPV still audible past 0131.
I`m adding all these refs to HFU only uplooked after my own writing:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, UT Sat May 1 at 0112 S9/+10 music, no doubt
Ball Smacker Radio on its regular schedule. Too much going on at same
time so not pursued further this week. More, agree:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81009.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, May 1 at 0113, S7-S8 of undermodulated
music, no doubt Nowhere Radio as heard several times before on this
almost-exact frequency. More here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81001.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6952-USB, May 1 at 0131, yet another pirate is on
tonight, S9 music; something about a tree house in the state of
Washington? and ``Pooh-bah Radio`` (?); ``Sound of Silence``.
Intermittent buzz as if wiggling patchcord. 0147 mentions QSL, more
music. Many reports here of FUBAR Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81019.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, May 1 at 0203 pirate music, 0204 repeating
8-note plus drum interval? signal. That`s the *Eighth* pirate tonight,
and at 0205 four of them are on at once; enough! 6933, 6952, 6960 and
6974.9. A final quick check of 4+ and 5+ MHz finds none in those
areas, not even Guatemala. These say it`s Voice of Communism from the
``Soviet Union`` for May Day:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81019.0.html
But I QRT before hearing any more of it. Besides all this I have been
trying to get one or two TV programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 30 at 2005, zero signal from REE North American
frequency; suspect it`s off and so do those further east. 15520 is a
JBA carrier.

11940, April 30 after 2200, the Friday token English broadcast is
fairly audible here on SAm frequency, devoted to history of Spain
after WWII especially about US military and NATO relations, and how
things have changed post-fascism with death of Franco in 1975*?
Well-produced including music bits and clips, the first I heard
sounded like HST (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 30 at 2245, VOT 2200- English is on today, good
S9/+10 with music, no RTTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2083 monitoring: Richard Lemke,
Alberta, confirms Wed April 28 at 1030 on WRMI 5850.

WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: just two days ago, IRRS via Challenger
Radio, Villa Estense, Italy, replaced 594 with 918 kHz, escaping the
595v Morocco het; including three WOR broadcasts, starting with Friday
2030 UT as of April 30. So I`m checking how it worx via Euremotes.
First the near-local Noale: tune in at 2022, JBA carrier at best! But
was something else or exciter, as pops on air at *2023, now steady
S9+18 with music.

2027 ID as WUSB, timecheck as 6:00, and `Off the Wall`, but then more
music, sounds like xylophone vamping. WUSB is 90.1 in Stony Brook LINY
where OTH is sked Tuesdays at that EDT. OTH is or was also on WBAI
99.5 NYC 25 hours later. It`s about hacking. NOT mentioned on IRRS
schedule for Fri 22:00 MESZ, just `world news`. WOR does show at 22:30
on the sked and as monitored after IRRS ID giving the PO Box in Milano
for reports, despite current e-mail advisories that they only accept
email!

Meanwhile I have been checking some other remotes: in quite well at
UTwente, S9+15 atop lite QRM perhaps Spain. Not making it to Arctic
Norway, JBA in southern Sweden. At Barcelona poorly audible but mixing
with Spanish, presumably the 20 kW in Madrid. Recheck Noale after
2100, 918 still on with music until 2111.5* UT cutoff, by a timer? No
sign of off-frequency 917 Nigerian. Next:

1300 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE

Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat May 1 from 0000, WBCQ webcast never even
checking SW, `AAAWWW` again live from Florida where it was 95 degrees
today so of course Angela is half-naked [? why not fully naked; this
is *radio; he could even tell us she is fully dressed and we would
have to believe it]. My attention is split with more than one real
pirate during same hour; see NORTH AMERICA.

Allan starts off trashing Tim Tron, a ``lazy bastard`` who apparently
hasn`t been to Monticello lately, and as the elder engineer cannot be
replaced. Long discussion of COVID; Allan says ``get the bloody
shots!`` OTOH, A&A think masks are useless since the viri are measured
in microns. 0048 plays an old clip from Paul Harvey lauding policemen.
[IIRC his father was one.] 0055 Allan says he convinced Angela to get
vaccinated, ending her holdout. Usual bits of email, prayer and out.
Here`s John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on both 6160 and 7490 with 7490
having the better signal again. Allan in the studio in a very warm Fla
with a half naked Angela. Opening comments about how hard it is to
keep the station running and Allan is upset with the aging staff,
especially TimTron who hasn't been to the station much of late. Allan
stated that there was no retirement in radio and no money in radio
anymore.

Angela starts an Angela's Angle complaining about people walking
outside alone while wearing a mask or driving a car while wearing a
mask. Most of her Angle was Covid related but did move to diet saying
that people should eat less meat and drink more water.

Phone call at 0042 from Tony Straka for a bit. After the call Allan
plays a snippet of tape from an old Paul Harvey program concerning the
police. Reading some emails at 0057 then Angela wishes that Trump
could come back immediately to save the country and stop what Biden
has started. Closing prayer at 0059. Off the air at 0100 and
immediately into Hal Turner. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, April 30 at 0616, RV, 3 x 3945, is S3-S7, song
sounds like ``Be Happy``, Bislama talk, more music. 7890 = 2 x 3945 a
JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6060, 6000, 5040, April 29 at 0614 check, The
Cuban Five are all off already, in English. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, April 29 at 1443, RHC is only S4-S5, which may be why
there are no spurs audible, if any too weak by comparison. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, April 29 at 1451, RHC is still here, to stay? S9 but
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9475, April 29 at 1449, mixture of Chinese and
Korean talk and a song, only S3-S5. Scheduled is National Unity Radio
from Taiwan site at 1200-1458 per Aoki. Ron Howard reported the same
kind of thing 2 + 24 hours earlier:

``National Unity Radio, 9475, from 1249 to 1250 UT, on April 28. Brief
Chinese language lesson; started and ended with Joyce Chu singing "Hao
xiang ni - I Miss You“; mostly in Korean; a few words in Chinese and a
sentence using the words; "Wǒmen Tándélái" (we share the same view or
we understand each other); N. Korea no longer jamming this frequency,
so nice reception. My audio at http://bit.ly/3xvEgRv .`` Tmx to WTWW
hardly ever on 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWEDEN [non]. 15510, April 29 at 1820, VP in African language,

** TURKEY. 9830, April 29 at 2243 check, VOT is on with music, only
poor despite no RTTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, April 29 at 1443, trace of CW, then fades up just
enough to be positive of the K6FRC ID repeating, allegedly 1.8
milliwatt HIFER beacon from Patterson CA; vs slight CODAR swirshing
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
