** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, April 18 at 0004, S9+20 pirate music in
``Boogie-woogie Country Girl``, 0005 segué to ``This Little Girl`s
Gonna Rockin``` --- bet it`s Wolverine Radio this time on a theme of
songs about girls; should be plenty of those! Yup, 0034.5 check,
Wolverine Radio ID; still going at 0101. Many more logs here with
playlists, SSTV IDs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80432.0.html
with famous portrait of a girl:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girl_with_a_Pearl_Earring
``Girl with a Pearl Earring (Dutch: Meisje met de parel) is an oil
painting by Dutch Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer dated c. 1665``
--- makes very interesting further reading. Someone might now want to
add that she has been immortalised as a Wolverine Radio SSTV QSL.
Sure hope she`s P.D. by now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, April 18 at 0243 UT, still a pirate here,
sounds as strong as Wolverine, S9+20, same transmitter? These say
Drunken DJ Radio took over at 0115 and posting requests here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80432.15.html
0259 ID as Drunken DJ Radio, asking for requests, and refers to
earlier Wolverine broadcast. Then ``8 Miles Hi`` by The Birds. BTW,
this has a much better signal than Area 51 on WBCQ, q.v. at USA, and
no RHC QRM! At 0307 I notice that switching to 6950-LSB, instead of
zero, I get residual audio, only the bass-line of the music, rather
than full fidelity on USB! Not sure if this be transmitter anomaly or
receiver, but with straight-up passband equally between LSB and USB,
and not noticed such on other SSB signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sat Apr 17 at 2023, REE is a JBA carrier to North
America amid G1 storming and K-index of 3. 15520 backwards manages
only S3-S5 at 2027, but somewhat readable, a lot better in comparison.
At this hour, REE would have a much better chance of reaching us on 13
or 11 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Apr 17 at 2222, again no signal from VOT English to
us, just RTTY clatter. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2082 monitoring: Richard Langley
reports about Saturday at 1300: ``Terrible reception on 15770 kHz here
in NB today (17 April) but I could get a few snippets of good audio
occasionally. So it is confirmed. I was recording the frequency for
Shortwave Radiogram hoping to get good images from the 200th edition
of the program. Not this time. Don't know if the poor reception was
due to the aftermath of the geomagnetic storm earlier in the day or
something else.``

Not confirmed on IRRS 7290, supposed to be Sat Apr 17 at 1801: via
UTwente, as usual modulation cuts on late at 1800:26 with Feature
Story News, not just headlines, 1803:46 music not WOR and later a YL
preacher. There may be a problem with automation scheduling system.

Confirmed Sat Apr 17 from 1952:06 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, VG via
nearby remote.

Next IRRS broadcast scheduled for webcast only Saturday at 2330.
https://www.nexus.org/mp3/
As last week, starts with Feature Story News - week in review. But
after another ID, WOR 2082 does start at 2334. Yet fades to black at
2400 as I am talking about WBCQ 13570/9330; back for a few words about
WHAM, then replaced by classical piano music fill. FYI: a 29:00 minute
program will not fit into a 26-minute slot: either let it run another
3 minutes, please, or ditch the news review before it.

Also confirmed UT Sunday April 18 from 0331 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO,
direct at S9+20 but not overcoming high noise level. Next:

2200vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun Apr 18 at 0100-0200, `Encore` classical music
hour from R. Tumbril via WRMI. A great mixture of familiar and
unfamiliar pieces. Try to hear it now every week when reception is
best across America; if not, 25 hours later UT Mon at 0200 on 5950.
The 5850 broadcast is also on // 7780 not so good here but to the NE
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.93, UT Sun April 18, Area 51 via WBCQ is only S7, even
tuned to LSB where the splash from 6165 RHC hits S9. Program just
ending is `Great Lakes Radio Conspiracy`. Checking this after pirate
on 6950-USB/LSB which has a *much* better signal, and NO QRM. At this
hour, there is NOTHING on 6155, 6150, 6145, or 6140. But since RHC
could jump to 6145 at will, the safest place for WBCQ would be 6155.
Unfortunately, US SW stations are not accustomed to addressing QRM
problems so rapidly, if ever (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, Apr 17 at 1925, WWCR-1 is S9+ tnx to sporadic E,
reinforcing its squeal. Similar megameter-away 15610, WEWN is also S9,
both much better than normal. 13845 WWCR-3 is also boosted to S9+25,
the SSOB. Nothing much on 17 MHz except 17530 VOA, but I had just
heard hams in FL and VA JBA on 18140-USB. Can hardly wait for Es MUF
to surpass 88 MHz this spring/summer. Or even 28.3+ MHz for hambeacons
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. My April 16 6100 item wrote EHC instead of RHC; repair (gh)

** U S A. The second graf of my WBCQ/AAAWWW report started with a
mistime, 0109 instead of 0009 UT. Please correct if quoting (gh)

==========

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat Apr 17 at 1437 tune-in via CX8BIT
remote, LRA36 is on with music at S5-S6; weaker S3-S4 into Campo,
Brasil, but better S/N so stay on it there: here`s one station not
carrying Prince Philip`s funeral! 1440 OM ID as ``Nacional Antártida
Argentina, en todo el país, la radio pública`` and music; 1451 same ID
by YL; 1457 RNASG/LRA36 ID and talk, still past 1510; long chronology
of scientific, literary events from at least 1945y onwards, a
`this-day-in-history` feature? Little if anything to do with Antda.
Why don`t they tell us about their scientific research, if any?

Finally ID with e-mail, URL, FB contact info; and frequencies 15476,
FM 96.7 at Esperanza Base. 1517 music; 1520 ID, music; 1523.5 another
LRA36 ID, music past 1530. 1532 contact info again. 1534 a song.
1537.5 ID and talk, ID for 15476.

1538 re-start as if signing on in Spanish, German, English ---.
Antártida song until 1542. 1550 different song, 1554.5 radio pública
ID, etc., etc., more songs past 1612. 1630 contact info. 1633 about
1982 Malvinas war anniversary. Were Antarctic bases somehow involved?
S Sandwiches were conquered and then lost. It lasted 10 weeks from 2
April, so we have 8 more weeks of commemoration? Lots more objective
history here, including which side other countries supported:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falklands_War
By 1640 it`s S1-S3 into Brasília #1 SDR, but quite readable, more
Malvinas recollexions. 1708 still going later than usual, contact info
and 1711 closing with Antda song, ID to 1713 when it ``signs-on`` yet
again in Spanish, German, English; and fourth language, maybe Russian
but most of the bit is pronouncing the names in Spanish anyway. 1716
Antda song *again*, welcoming us to another Wednesday program in the
2021 series, and *again* going over the Malvinas war and its
aftermath. Still2 going past 1745.

BTW, I did not get it checked on Wed Apr 14 morning when LRA36 was
probably on, but no other reports of it then (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, April 17 at 0556, this RHC is S9+20 of dead air in
English except for some squeal. 6165 is also S9/+20 but modulating
somewhat underly. 6060 is S9+30 without humbuzz. 6000 equal. 5040 off.
By 0622, only 6100 squeal and 6165 remain. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13630, April 17 at 1420, weak spurblob out of 13700-AM RHC
which is only S8-S9. Cannot be sure of a match around 13770, and the
Part 15 pulsers on 13560 are unimpeded. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, April 17 at 0603, VON on here for second day,
S9+20. I was not noticing it just before 0600 when concentrating on
adjacent 7260 for Vanuatu, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 17 at 1424, REE early start on Sat, but N
American frequency is only JBA over total-day path (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2082 monitoring: missed checking
Sat Apr 17 at 1300 on WRMI 15770; anyone hear it?

Confirmed Sat Apr 17 after 1600 on WRN webcast. Next:

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, April 17 at 0617, S9+10/20 open carrier. Surely it`s
WRMI-14, which is supposed to quit at 0430, except Sun & Mon to 0600
but this is Sat. Like 5800 WRMI-10 sometimes shows up carriering this
late at night, but not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, April 17 at 0557, JBA presumed R. Vanuatu X1 about
to QSY? Nothing yet on X3 11835. 7260 cuts off at 0559:05*, and in the
few seconds it takes me to retune to 11835, that frequency is already
activated by 0559:25, with much better S4-S9 signal, continuous YL
Bislama talk, and no news theme heard. 3945 X2 on 7890 is JBA carrier;
X4 on 15780 unheard yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4738-4744, April 17 at 0612, some kind of utehash over
this range, no central carrier; first sounds somewhat musical, as if a
pirate, but can`t get it to resolve anywhere by USB or LSB tuning.
Strong S9+10, nonesuch heard before, atop CODAR swishes. Probably US
military (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Correcting previous log, 9475-9505, not 9465-9505; fixed:
9475-9505, April 16 at 0113, jamming against 9490 is splattering
plus/minus 15 kHz; but on 9490 itself, R. República via RMI via FRANCE
is overcoming it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, April 16 at 0612, EHC English is S9 but JBM here, while
6060 is S9+20/30 with good modulation for a change; and 5040, 6000,
and even 6165 are OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13839 S2-S3, 13769 S3; source 13700-AM S9/+10; 13630, 13560
losing out to local Part 15 pulsing, April 16 at 1420, FMish spurblobs
of music with F# tones at ~70 kHz intervals. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 16 at 1855, no signal from RHC, but *1856 open
carrier cut on with hum, S9+5; 1901 English overmodulated with hum.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. 15140 supposed to be on continuously
since 1100 per EiBi, with Kriyol at 1830. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 15300, April 16 at 1855, Horn-of-Africa music at S0-S3, so
figured it would be something other than RFI in French as listed
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.936, April 16 at 0606, VON in Hausa, S8/S9+10.
Surprise, back here after long absence, always off-frequency-minus,
after presumably having stayed on 11769.92, where especially at this
hour we are lucky even to hear a JBA carrier. On Feb 4 at 0703 I first
reported 11770- instead of 7255-, and no logs of the latter, since.
But at 1858 April 16 I have presumed VON circa 11769.9, S3-S6,
undermodulated? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, April 16 at 2346, pirate with steady S9 of
rock; 2347 ``and now New Jersey by request, is that right?`` April 17
at 0002, ``WTF Radio Worldwide``. Many more logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80373.0.html
Is playing songs about each state in alfabetical order (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 338-MCW kHz, April 16 at 1416 UT, NDB TU, which is 30
watts from Tulsa; I was tuned to 336-USB. Despite proximity on
groundwave, seldom heard at night. Last logged January 1, also about
same hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 16 at 1851, REE is S6-S8 about a Bach partita;
this early, better than 15520 and 11940, both S3-S7. 17855 is the OSOB
except for JBA carrier on 17530 which would be VOA Ascension. But
Grimesland or other sites at other times.

At 2132, 17855 even better, S8/S9+10 // 11940 S7-S9, but not // 15520
S7-S9 which has split off into Arabic. This sked shows no such Arabic:

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2021/04/radio-exterior-de-espana_12.html
But WRTH 2021 had B-20 Arabic at 2230 M-F on E-Hemisphere frequencies,
which would now have shifted to 2130.

Despite K index of 5 amid G1 storm per WWV as of 2100!

At 2200 I`m on computer so bring up the NA5B KiwiSDR in Washington DC
area, revealed on its map as axually in Maryland between Gaithersburg
and Leesburg VA. Flags above the waterfall denote four Radio Australia
frequencies on 16m! Slightly outdated, including good ol` 17795, sigh.
Anyhow this is still getting 17855 VG at S9+25! Two REE features in
English: first, for April 16, World Voice Day, with Justin Coe; see
http://world-voice-day.org
and from 2211, European Space Agency agenda 2025, with Alison Hughes.
A quick check of my own rx at 2225 finds 17855 faded down to JBA in
the noise; back to NA5B for concluding song, ``Voice`` by Moody Blues
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 16 at 2159 and 2212, nothing but RTTY clatter
into NA5B WDC remote, VOT English to us AWOL. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2082 monitoring: NOT confirmed at
2055 April 16 the scheduled Friday 2030 airing on IRRS Challenger
Radio, 594 kHz, Villa Estense, Italy; instead via nearby Noale remote
in Italy, and NEXUS-IBA webcast, a couple of guys conversing, but cut
off before any program name, for IRRS ID, and not off the air at 2100
yet; 2105 music, finally cut off at 2111.5*. I had confirmed WOR last
week at 2030. I see WOR is still on IRRS Friday 22:30 CET schedule. So
what happened, a change already? Next:

** U S A. 7489.95 &/or 6159.925 approx., UT Sat April 17 at 0003, the
WBCQs with `AAAWWW` underway, Allan saying that 6160 is not on air
with show tonight. Yes, it is, as I check it immediately, running a
few seconds behind 7. Larry Will soon calls to say he just fixed it
and now has remote control of the 6160 transmitter.

0109 lw mentions possible QRM from Iran on 6160 with special Ramadan
broadcast [none audible here tonight, sked 2253-2420 southward in
Arabic] and also Cuba irregularly [splash from 6165 Cuba grows worse
during hour and still there with LSB tuning, so prefer 7490-. I had
pointed out to lw about Iran and that WBCQ should shift to 6155,
midway between the RHC alternatives.]

They say that this summer AW and Tim are going to get 3265 back on
air, changing transmitters around. 0012 Larry off and annoying Freddie
caller immediately replaces him.

[I`ve also just heard directly from Larry: ``Allan and Timtron are
going to be doing some work this summer to bring back 3265 KHz on one
of the big classic WBCQ transmitters, so we may be splitting the Area
51 blocks between 6160 and 3265 with the latter frequency being used
later in the evening. That will give us some more flexibility for
programs such as WOR. I'll be working with them to determine the
optimal frequency/times for our services. Regards, Lw``]

Next topix: billions of robocalls to avoid, and internet scams. Jibe
at Pres. Biden as if he were dumb enough to fall for them. A couple
times including 0019 there is background noise QRMing Allan he does
not seem to be aware of; from phone line?

0022, finally datestamped as 16th of April, YOOL 2021. Refers to
something accusing CNN of being anti-Trump, pro-Biden. Next topic,
reminiscing about the vinyl record era and then reel-to-reel tapes,
how they are both making a comeback for audiophiles. He was about to
read a Radio World article about that, but never got to it. Angela has
hardly a chance to say anything tonight, but plugs a far-right
extremist website.

On March 13 a Maine documentary crew, FSK? Produxions, was at the
SuperStation, and now a 31-minute video about how it came to be is on
youtube if you search on WBCQ 9330. It`s somewhat technical. ``Still
has a few bugs.``

0048, starts to read some Free Radio Weekly items, but interrupted by
a call from someone allegedly in Paris about how locked-down they are
in France. 0052 back to FRW, reads a few pirate names and frequencies,
no further details, so he can plug for them to buy time on WBCQ
instead and avoid illegality.

0056, third call by Freddie interrupting. 0058, Allan calls `BCQ ``Big
Balls Broadcasting``, and right into closing prayer, thanking a god
for electrons. 0100 into music repeating, theme of Hal Turner? and he
starts by 0101 mentioning KYAH in Utah [a station which would like to
air WOR; but night power is 13 watts]. John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 and several minutes later on
6160. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan starts off reading an
article but phone call at 0005 from Larry Will stating that he was
able to get the 6160 transmitter started remotely. While talking to
Larry, Allan stated that this summer they would be broadcasting late
night on 3265.

Phone call at 0012 from Freddie. Talk is about robo calls, then into
talk about scammers. Allan states that Angela is half naked in the
studio.

Finally back to the article he had started earlier concerning the
admission that CNN had used propaganda and propaganda methods to help
get rid of Trump. Then into the merits of vinyl as opposed to tape.
Allan mentions that a documentary about the superstation has been
posted on YouTube. Mainly concerned with the building of the station.
Allan says to search for WBCQ 9330. Freddie back on the phone at 0046
asking for a link to the video. Phone call at 0048 from a gentleman in
France bemoaning that they still have a curfew at night because of
Covid.

Reading of emails at 0052 which begins with a scan of the newest Free
Radio Weekly. Freddie back on the phone at 0056 to explain a picture
that he had just emailed them. Closing prayer at 0059. Then closing
comments cut off mid sentence at 0100 and then back to the last
sentence of the closing talk which was repeated, into music and then
into Hal Turner. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, April 16 at 0520, JBA carrier, probably R. Vanuatu.
I`ve never had a good log of it on this fundamental, unlike the

11835 harmonic3, where there is nothing yet; but at 0604, 11835 is on
with talk, S4-S7, and 7890 harmonic2 a JBA carrier. This implies that
7260 switch to 3945 circa 0600, as Ron Howard has observed (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR) see also NIGERIA

** CUBA. 11850, April 16 at 0108, RHC Spanish is sup-torted, while
11760 is merely under-modulated; 11670 is off; but 13740 is VG and the
OSOB. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At least, neither 11850 nor
13740 is in English tonight like before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9465-9505, April 16 at 0113, jamming against 9490 is
splattering plus/minus 15 kHz; but on 9490 itself, R. República via
RMI via FRANCE is overcoming it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, April 16 at 0250, RHC English is JBM here, much louder
on 6000, with COVID-19 advisory. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-AM, April 16 at 0120, emphatic talk at S6-S7,
probably the pirate relay of Fox News Channel, but not synchronized
and can`t stand to watch Cable 48 more than a few seconds at a time,
during Hannity. By 0128 is too weak anyway but still on past 0203.
Strangely, no reports of this at HFU, like the last time I heard it
after 0600. There is a report of it at FRN:
http://www.frn.net/vines/read.php?5,8924,8924#msg-8924
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, April 16 at 0121, hard talk/rock, maybe in
a loop, deliberately distorted with hard background noise. Then
slightly more intelligible dialog, 0127 song. Off at 0203 recheck.
Other reports of this mashup:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80341.0.html
Maybe Big Badfish Al in Central Pennsylvania explain it?:
``Captain Black Baerd Radio/Sycko R. 5130 USB was 6935 USB 0115
UTC 16 April 2021, SIO: 444 in CT. 0125 - A mixture of radio stations
overdub and some electric. Thank you Captain Blackbeard and DJ Sycko
for relaying his station`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW kHz, April 16 at 0244 UT, Enid`s NDB, EI, is gone
again. Algo JBA probably DNI and/or OIN. Latest reactivation of EI was
only April 14 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 15 at 1805 & 1825, no signal from REE N
American overfrequency, not propagating? No, I think it`s OFF, since
neighboring FRANCE manages a JBA carrier on neighboring 17850. But
Spain`s 15520 & 11920 are only JBA carriers. Richard Langley, NB, also
thinx 17855 was off today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 6060, April 15 at 0627, RHC English with bigbuzz; 6100 & 6165
OK; 6000 & 5040 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13420 vs RTTY, 13490, 13560 vs local Part 15 ISM pulsing,
13630; 13770, 13840, 13909, 13979-trace, April 15 at 1412, FMish
spurblobs with F# tone at ~70 kHz intervals, out of RHC 13700-AM which
is only S9-S7 and undermodulated during `Sonido Cubano` music. Not in
the order tuned. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, April 15 at 0600 UT, JBA carrier
again tonight, presumed R. Kiribati, Xmas Island; no TA carriers, but
another on 1098, likely another TP, Marshall Islands (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 341-MCW kHz, April 15 at 0610 UT, Enid NDB EI
is still on, alternating nicely with OIN Oberlin KS; almost same
periods but eventually will overlap (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.468v, April 15 at 0024, R. Huanta 2000 presumed, again
tonight within 4 Hz of where it was SDR SAM-measured last night, via
TWR KiwiSDR, Boa Vista, Brasil, S8-S9 but VP unreadable, so with BFO I
just listen for the carrier to drop, which it does at 0028* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 305-MCW kHz, April 15 at 0604 UT, NDBeacon RO, which is 150
watts from Roswell NM; I was tuned to 303-USB. Seldom heard, last
logged even later on Feb 19. Earlier tonight also had RYN Tucson on
338 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2081 monitoring: confirmed final repeat,
UT Thu Apr 15 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9/+10
into Bonaire SDR.

NEW WOR 2082 should be ready by early UT Fri Apr 16 for first
broadcasts on WRMIs 5850 to NW and 7780 to NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Chris Gay, KU4A, notified the WOR iogroup at 0117 UT April
15: ``840, WHAS's Facebook page says they will go off the air at 11 PM
EDT tonight (0300 UTC 15 April) for "several hours" of maintenance. A
great chance to DX the frequency, especially for people like me who
are only 80 miles from their transmitter.``

An amplified compendium of my replies:

At 0301, WHAS still on with ABC news, 0302-0304+ own news; heavy 5 Hz
SAH from KVJY, normally audible with WHAS nulled. Night pattern with 1
kW is supposedly fat cardioid toward SW, protecting WHAS to NE, and
with very little signal due north toward me:
https://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/amq?list=0&facid=64629

Well, WHAS still haven`t gone off by 0321 UT. O, just cut off rudely
at 0323 uncovering KVJY Spanish praise music. What else? CMHW Cuba
should be heard.

At 0330, KVJY ID as ``R. Aléluya, 1600 Pasadena Blvd., Pasadena,
Tejas``.

With WHAS off, 1.6 Hz SAH between KVJY and something.
Streaming linx for comparison

https://radioaleluya.org/
https://www.cmhw.cu/

Listening to CMHW webcast, ``s/off`` and Cuban NA by 0400 -- but
continues with ``W Santa Clara, en el centro de Cuba`` --- and
``informativo de CMHW...``

The major other UStation on 840 is news/talk KXNT Las Vegas NV, 25 kW
but major lobes to north and SSW.

At 0400, KVJY, Pharr, Texas, brief legal ID in English. Pharr is far
from Houston, but apparently programmed from HQ. Webpage has listen
linx to it and 3 other sibling stations, so not simulcasting?

And WHAS, 5 Hz SAH cut back on by *0416. Off again by 0422*. WHAS on
again for a few seconds at *0424 - etc., etc.? Not listening closely
after that, but WHAS back on to stay by 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 11835, April 15 at 0626, 3 x 3945 R. Vanuatu
with talk in Bislama, S5-S6 better than usual; also JBA on 7890 = 2 x
3945. No sign of co-channel China on 11835. At 0632, NZ inbooming
S9+10/20 on 11725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2182-USB, April 15 at 0613 UT, YL making a call, no
reply heard. I bandscan across here every night, but hardly ever hear
anything on this once-major calling/distress channel. Must stop and
sit on it for longtime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
