** CANADA. 6070-, April 19 at 0521, CFRX is on and good with talkshow,

which on 49m infests this frequency only, but not always. Ho hum,
something`s always wrong at RHC but this time I don`t bother to
compare to the rest (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13767 & 13633 approx., Apr 19 at 1356, weak spurblobs out of
13700-AM RHC but no program audio, just some F# tone; second-orders 2
x 67 kHz intervals are barely detectable circa 13567, 13833.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, April 19 at 2201, S9-S7 of dead air from RHC; 15370
achieves S9/+20 of a discurso naming names, presumably good Commies,
applause after each. 11950 is also dead air at 2211, S7/9+10. 11760
also with discurso, only S5-S8 with hum. 11850 missing so I hear
something else: see GERMANY [non]. Somethings` always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9880, April 19 at 2218, S6-S9 with flutter in
stilted Spanish? No, scheduled as Esperanto from CRI to S America via
Kashgar, land of ChiCom imperialist persecution and genocide against
Uyghurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 11850, April 19 at 2211, checking for RHC but it`s
absent, instead the Deutsche Welle IS! How forlorn, brothers seeking
brothers past 2224 with no response, let alone schwisters. VP signal
S3-S0 with flutter, but unmistakable. 11850 happens to be a DW
frequency for three daily broadcasts in Hausa, one ending at 1900, the
next not until 0630. One thing for sure, if it`s DW, it can`t be
transmitted from Germany`s last major SW site, Nauen; these are
scheduled via ISSoudun where maybe they forgot to turn it off 3+ hours
ago? Or QRX for latest flap about Euro football? Or maybe a very late
silly ball game after midnight, which seems to be the main purpose of
one of two languages remaining from DW on KW; the other? Amharic
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. 7290, Monday April 19 at 1758, I`m checking IRRS
via UTwente SDR to see how it`s doing in the timeslot from which WOR
was bumped to Saturday. Weak carrier seems to be on, but CNR is still
audible past 1802, when I conclude IRRS is not on at all. It does cut
on at *1807:26, after which the new program must have long begun. No
modulation audible until weakly at 1811:06, undermodulated talk. So
the startup situation at this secret site is worse than ever.

IRRS sked now shows for Monday 2000-2100 CET: ``EGR - Gospel4Grampian
Radio``, per its own website, outgrowth of a mere podcast. Grampian is
a region in NE Scotland around Aberdeen. Occupies the whole hour, so
Shortwave Report is also replaced. By 1833 recheck, modulation has
improved to readable, if one cared to.

Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS assures me that the schedule has been fixed
so WOR will appear: Fri 2030 UT on 594+webcast; Sat 1801 on 7290, 594
and webcast; Sat 2334 on webcast only; and presumably still Sunday
2000 on 594+webcast as I confirmed April 18 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. April 19 is the 36th anniversary of the domestic
terrorist bombing of OKC; as always, the local TV stations are
covering the commemoration ceremony live from the Memorial, but I find
that KOSU is running its own documentary, from 6 years ago:

``That April Morning: The Oklahoma City Bombing
By KGOU & KOSU & THE OKLAHOMA PUBLIC MEDIA EXCHANGE • APR 17, 2015
The Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum
BRIAN HARDZINSKI / KGOU
53:00 Listen to KGOU and KOSU's documentary "That April Morning: The
Oklahoma City Bombing." [or read script with sound bites]

The bomb that destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in
downtown Oklahoma City killed 168 people - including 19 children. It
injured hundreds more, and forever shaped the community.

April 19, 1995 started as an idyllic spring morning - clear skies,
calm winds - better than most Wednesdays during the state’s
usually-turbulent severe weather season. Nothing seemed out of the
ordinary. Workers showed up to their jobs, and went about their
regular routines. That all changed at 9:02 a.m...``
https://www.kosu.org/post/april-morning-oklahoma-city-bombing
(Glenn Hauser, ex-OKC, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 19 circa 2125 via NA5B KiwiSDR in Maryland, REE
audible but less than S9, while 15520 & 11940 tho not for us, are much
better S9. K-index is 4.

By token English, Monday at 2200, a general news review in some
detail, direct to here, 17855 & 15520 are totally inaudible; 11940
fair S8-S3 with splash from 11930 OCB, and 11685 also audible vs RTTY
from 11687.5 NAU Puerto Rico (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 19 at 2200, with K-index of 4, trace of VOT on
the air but totally buried under S9+20 of RTTY from NSS, and notching
cannot help (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ZAMBIA. 5915, April 19 at 0518, weak music with no QRM; could it be
ZNBC Radio 1 this late? Yes, barely, Lusaka LSR was 0415, and nothing
else scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** CANADA. 6070-, April 19 at 0326, no signal from CFRX, into Virginia
remote, as Richard Langley noted a semihour ago in NB (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, April 19 at 0055, weak S3-S4 pirate with
hard rock, some ACI from the 2-way on 6935-LSB, see UNID. 0101 DJ with
reverb, after Wolfman Jack? Makes him hard to understand, but gives an
ID and email. Again at 0106; 0113 ``mad man at the microphone``. Still
at 0144; off by 0153 recheck. Only 5 logs here say it`s SyckO Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80492.0.html
Someone told me it`s pronounced like ``psycho`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 18 at 2248, confirmed VOT English to us was on
the air today, now signing off and into IS, gone by 2253. No RTTY this
late (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2082 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
April 18 at 2000 on IRRS via Challenger Radio, 594, Italy, via KiwiSDR
remote at Noale.

Also confirmed Sunday April 18 at 2200 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.916,
at NA5B remote in MD. Tuned in earlier, *2155 with WBCQ IS & ID loop,
while A51 webcast ran ``SPAM`` by Monty Python, but they merged by
2200 in time for WOR heard on both.

Also confirmed Sun Apr 18 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, good to Virginia SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Apr 19 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon Apr 19 at 0230 on WRMIs: 7780 S5-S8 and 5800 VG
S9+20/10 direct. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

woradio at yahoo.com --- Not necessarily in US funds

One may also contribute, by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, April 18 at 2300, WRMI with ``Radio Lavalamp``, VG
into VA/MD remote somewhat offbeam. A special booking no one asked me
to publicize but did so anyway on WOR 2082 which happened to be airing
at the same time on WRMI 7780. Mostly music, few announcements, one at
2318, another at 2334 asking for reports to be eQSLed, but gave email
only once and could not copy it accurately. Again at 2351 but
uncopied. Publicity described music genre as ``Ethereal``, sort of
like MFTHOS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, April 19 at 0146, RCM, WEWN is OFF, leaving pulse
jamming bleed from 5980. Then I check 9385 WEWN English and it`s also
OFF. Storm over Vandiver/Irondale/Birmingham? No, Blitzortung shows no
lightning closer than central Florida. By 0226, 9385 is back on but
5970 still off. And 5970 still off at 0325 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 5076 & 5094, April 19 at at 0150, pulse jamming
noise peaking 8-9 kHz on both sides of 5085 WTWW-2. Much like that
emanating from Cuban jamming frequencies such as 5980, 6030, but
strange to hear circa WTWW. Possibly own transmitter artifact? The
usual JBA parasitic spur carriers are still there separately circa
5072 & 5098 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Non-thoro quick spin thru MW for JBA Trans-Atlantic
carriers, April 19 at 0222 UT finds: 684, 774(2), 855(2), 1125,
1134(2), mostly fitting Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6935-LSB, April 19 at 0053, lengthy 2-way conversation
QRMing pirate on 6930-USB. Intonation sounds Brazilian, but don`t
understand the words, language unknown (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** CUBA. 13838, 13769; 13636, 13562, 13490, all very approx. centers
of spurblobs mostly with F# tone, out of RHC 13700-AM, April 18 at
1408, ranging from 64 to 72 kHz intervals; but also not fitting the
sequence circa 13668, 13596, roughly halfway between the others.
Another check at 1438: 13556, 13628, 13772, 13844 vs WWCR = 72 kHz
intervals. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, April 18 at 0601, no signal from VON, so the
two-night run is over (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9460.005, April 18 at 1845, Turkish music, S4-S8, as TRT
scheduled 1500-2058. Hardly anything else from EurAsia audible on this
or other bands. So they can do it, but what about 9830 for English at
2200, missing the past two days at least? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7260, April 18 at 0542, JBA carrier probably R.
Vanuatu; but overshadowed by stronger carrier on 7261 -- that could
just be a ham instead of LSB. At 0558 I`m QRX for next frequency 11835
to pop on, 3945 X 3, and so it does at *0559:45, but it`s also only
JBA carrier tonight; NZ has also just started 11725 which is weaker
than usual, only S4-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
