Logs
** 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:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80991.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** 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:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81000.0.html
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81016.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** 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:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81006.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** 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
1801 UT Saturday IRRS 7290-Bulgaria to WNW, NEW 918-Italy ex-594
1930vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0400]

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support:
thanks this week to Ron Howard, Monterey, California, in memory of
Noel Green, for a check to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702,
and Ron says, ``Appreciate all the wonderful things you do for our
hobby!``

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com.

BTW, NEXT Saturdays May 8 & 15, WOR will be pre-empted from IRRS 7290
& 918 at 1801 UT; but instead Sat at 2030 on 918 & webcast (Glenn
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)

Brasil, SDR, LRA36 is on this Wednesday, S5-S7. In USB-narrow mode,
audio bandwidth on waterfall is slightly less than full USB: 15476.2
to 15478.4. Canned ID at 1519, ``LRA36, Radio Nacional Arcángel San
Gabriel``, music; 1522 email address; 1523 ``todo por hoy; hasta la
próxima`` in faux ``sign-off``, Antártida song to 1527. Pause. Restart
music, 1534.5 ``sign-on``, notice in Spanish, German, English and
fourth language that this is in Spanish.

I keep listening closely to #4, and believe there is a ``govorit`` in
it, therefore Russian. The ``imnida`` at the end of it really merely
``Argentina``. Korean is after all not a RAE language; but neither was
Russian; anyhow it`s relevant to Antarctic basing. But so is Korea
South. There are/were a lot more bases than you might think, including
by countries not really associated with Anta., including two from
South Korea:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_stations_in_Antarctica

A further wikilink: ``Esperanza Base (Spanish: Base Esperanza, 'Hope
Base') is a permanent, all-year-round Argentine research station in
Hope Bay, Trinity Peninsula (in Graham Land on the Antarctic
Peninsula). It is one of only two civilian settlements in Antarctica
(the other being the Chilean Villa Las Estrellas). The base's motto is
Permanencia, un acto de sacrificio ('Permanence, an act of
sacrifice').`` Civilian, really? Then why are all the LRA36 staff
bearing military ranx? as specified with a QSL I quote on WOR 2083. Of
course, obsessed with the Malvinas war. And I have never heard that
motto uttered on air.

Second program -- or repeat of the first one? continues: 1545 song;
1600 sharp, ID as ``Nacional Antártida Argentina, en todo el país, la
radio pública`` --- this slogan meant to imply that Argentina straddle
two continents; music. 1605 maybe this-day-in-history about Malvinas
war, Real Madrid; but then current headlines about Burkina Faso,
pandemia en India, Oscars, and more talk. 1622 song, 1625 ID, more
song until chopped off the air at 1628.6* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, April 28 at at 0104, RHC Spanish still here, S9+20
totally blotting any sign of CRI Spanish via East Turkistan, to Latin
America, where there could be more of a clash. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. Again on 9710, not 9650, April 28 at 2210 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, April 28 at 1441, S9 of dead air. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17544.95479, another Wednesday April 28 at 1538, so
taking a break from LRA36, another attempt to hear Bayto Yaikl via RMI
as still allegedly scheduled via FRANCE. UTwente synch locks onto
steady frequency as above, but it`s S5 = noise level, far too weak to
copy. Kuwait SDR also gets JBA carrier at 17545 minus 48-53-60 Hz.
Maybe JBA carriers audible also at Bucharest, Thessaloniki, but too
weak to lock onto. Is it any better in Eritrea? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 28 at 0106, NO signal from REE to North
America; altho it held up well into Ladino[non] by 2215 April 27, and
supposed to last entire transmission until 0200*. 11940 for S America
is a JBA carrier? now, no good either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed April 28 at 2129, REE is S3-S7 in Castilian,
asking for reports via whatsapp! also // 11940 S3-S6, while 15520
S5-S7 has split into Arabic. 2220 all four rejoin for English: 17855
S9 but deep fades to S3, Justin Coe introes with news, later feature
to be about regional elexions next week in Madrid. After Burkina Faso
item, 2204 over to Alison Hughes for world news as if BF were not?
Spaniard long resident in Gaza working for NGO to aid Palestinians has
been arrested and held without charges by Israel. 2211 pandemic in
India, still VG signal on 17855 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 28 at 2158, nothing but RTTY; 2212 no RTTY and
still no VOT in English to America. That leaves the final repeat at
0300 on 7275 INTRUDING into our hamband which seems to be more
reliable. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler, awry at Ankara
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7602-USB and stronger 7615-USB, UT Wednesday April 28 at
0109, the two paramilitary ``Civil`` Air Patrol nets again, some of
the stations beeping at each end of transmission, saving them the
trouble of uttering ``over`` over and over, just like CBers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2083 monitoring: anyone hear the
Wed 1030 on WRMI 5850, April 28?

Confirmed Wed Apr 28 at 2100 on WRMI 7780, VG S9 into Maine SDR, no
signal into UTwente but strong continuous pulsing noise. At 2128
direct, S7 vs S5 noise level.

Also confirmed 21 seconds behind Wed Apr 28 after 2100 on WBCQ 7490
minus 65-68 Hz and only S3 at KB0FX SDR in Missouri; direct at 2128,
S5-S7.

Also confirmed Wed Apr 28 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S7-S9 direct and no
jamming audible. Next, and last:
