Logs
** ANTARCTICA. Re last report, altho it was obviously on Saturday, I
somehow miswrote Wed & Fri at the end. Make that Wed & Sat (Glenn
Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Apr 24 at 0345, R. Progreso is missing; supposed to run
0030-0400. 5025 Rebelde is still on. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba.

4765, April 25 at 0028, S9+15/25 open carrier, RP must be about to
sign-on. Can`t hear the 4747/4783 spurs before any modulation.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Apr 24 at 2320, RHC Spanish is back here, after jump to
9640 last night and this morning. Goodbye, Guinea (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, April 24 at 2329, this RHC is off again. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. But see INDIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 5040, April 25 at 0016, JBA carrier in absence of RHC.
Unless it`s a CM exciter, only other SWBC station is Jeypore, one of
the few AIRs I think still active. Per VU2JOS, nominal sign-on is
*0025; no early Ramazan break-fast there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6928-USB, April 24 at 2315, SSTV beepery on 6930?
Could not tell reference frequency until started talking at 2315. Says
he is having transmitter troubles today; more SSTV: no variation in
pitches, same over and over until the end-tones, so a very boring
image? 2318 ``adiós, amigos, catch you on the flip side`` and maybe an
unreadable ID, off. Yes, many more logs here from 2143 to 2319* first
as unID, then Skunk House Radio, with Zeke:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80695.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, April 25 at 0019, ``Oklahoma`` at S7-S8
--- how does he know I`ve just tuned in? Must be the pirate playing
songs about states in alfabetical order; 0020 the next one I don`t
recognize would be about Oregon. Yes, many more logs with playlist:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80703.0.html
and I, myself retuned at 0056 via Knoxville remote still hear rock
music at S6-S7; 0100 ``This is WTF Radio Worldwide`` and now he has
reached John Denver for West Virginia ``Country Roads``, but China
beat him to it as I reported hearing that on 9790. O my, at 0100 he
has competition from 5950 WRMI with TRSW and 5850 WRMI with Encore;
what`ll I do? Compromise with classical, so rare on US SW (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, April 25 at 0018, JBA music at S7 = noise
level; 0021 some beeps mix, QRM? Pirates seldom venture this high in
``their`` band. Three other reports as 6975 unID:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80705.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 3185-USB, April 25 at 0159 UT, I tune in for one of
the publicized Mystery Radio pirate broadcasts of the original
recordings of Radio Pancho Villa. I`m on the Knoxville SDR at first,
but that`s too close to all the storms over Georgia and Florida. I
keep trying other SDRs for better S/N, but not much, in MD, MO, NY.
Even in Ottawa and Fort Collins it`s too noisy. I suspect 90mb is not
the best choice in spring storm season. I didn`t try the earlier
broadcasts in the afternoon today as they would surely be too
daytimish. Anyhow these imply coming from eastern US as are most SW
pirates. If only I could hit upon a Kiwi at local range, but then I
shouldn`t say so. I stick with it mostly via NA5B in Maryland for a
semi-hour in order to qualify for a QSL, my copied details as vague as
they may be, but surely recognizable:

0159, a 3-note ``IS`` repeating
0200, Hola, hola, hola; mix of BBC? and other SW IDs; just music;
0208, yells mixed with music
0211, calling out to something/one?
0213, laughing & yelling
0215, Hello, hello, and a song
0217, cut to funny voice talking, only
0220, loop about QSL? mixing mx; briefly clear YL voice with gmail QSL
address but I can`t copy it
0221, VOPV theme song as heard during the 2021 SWL Fest broadcasts;
yelps & yells, VOPV ID, feedback loop, lots of weird vocal noises
0225, segué to trumpet tune; then ``turn it down!`` 2 or 3 times;
0226, distorted voice, can`t understand much, ``all f--ed up``
0227, guitar & C&W tune in English

So far I have heard no mention of one ``Glenn Hauser`` who is
allegedly invoked in many of these episodes, whew.

At 0212 I had made a quick check of 3185 on my own radio, but JBA.
0230, after putting up with awful noisy reception, I bail, hoping to
hear it better somewhen other; and go to WCLV webcast for the last
half of `Weekend Radio`, in pristine hifi stereo, during ``I can`t
wait to see you with clothes on``, by Orson Bean... I`ll get the first
half after 0300 on KUCO.

O o, a quick check at 0259 break, now VOPV about worshiping in the
direxion of Enid, Oklahoma. OK, since SNL is a rerun and I`ve now
heard the second and first halves of Weekend Radio, at 0330 I`m back
on 3185-USB, still stormnoisy via VE3HOA Ottawa remote; in a wild
song. Sic transit. Note: as I finish writing this, I have not looked
at anyone else`s report of same (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.5, April 25 at 0027, JBA carrier much weaker than CODAR
swirshes, no doubt R. Huanta 2000 as heard several times via Bonaire
remote, but this is all it can achieve direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2083 monitoring: confirmed UT Sun Apr 25 from
0321 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO via nearby KB0FX SDR. Next:

2200vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW
2300 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE
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

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support:
thanks this week to Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, California, for a generous
contribution to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, ``Thanks
for keeping accurate, reliable and timely DX info available all these
years. Enclosed is a bit to help out all the WOR activities. Cheers
from the Beach``

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds,
to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, sometime after 0300 UT Sat Apr 24, WRMI with `Classic
Redneck Radio` making totally irresponsible off-the-cuff remark that
``vaccines will kill tens of millions of people in a few months``.
Well, maybe COVID will get him totally unvaxed (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5950, April 25 at 0100, checking WRMI via Knoxville W8BUG
remote, `YROT` theme so it`s Texas Radio Shortwave, Third Mate Susan
says another in the Texas Music Tribute series, asking for reports to
be eQSLed; then Britrobo, or Cap`n Ric, introes an hour of Kenny
Rogers, first song `Planet Texas`. O my, WTFRWW pirate still going on
6930-USB, and `Encore` classical is just starting on another WRMI,
5850; I have to compromise with the latter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9, April 25 at 0025, WBCQ still here during Area 51/61
music, with RHC splash from stronger 6165, even when tuned to LSB; yet
6155 remains vacant! Other `BCQ, 7489.9, presents us with a Yeshua
fanatic; NTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun April 25 at 0023, WTWW-2 just started `TOUTA`
as Bob Heil says it will be mostly music by George Wright at the
Chicago? Theatre. On the PL-880, bandwidth keeps jumping narrow/wide
with a mind of its own even tho locked, obscuring any distortion on
the transmission, anyhow causing me not to listen (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

Sunday, April 25 2021

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sat Apr 24 at 1407 I check my own
outside antenna for any trace of LRA36, but none as expected for 300
watts, which is however still a `good DX catch` a few thousand km away
at Brasil remotes. I do bring Pardinho up at 1459, and there it is,
S5-S7 with a chronology for Apr 24, evidently `this day in history`.
Lots of IDs ensue, bits of music, 1519 multi-contact info, 1520
``hasta la próxima``, Antártida theme song.

But restarting at 1523, ``a partir de este momento``, informal ID as
``Radio San Gabriel`` without the Arcángel title; telling us in
Spanish, German, English; and Korean? --- thought it ended with
``imnida`` --- that the broadcast is in: Spanish! and shortly same
announcement repeated. 1545 rock song in English; still past 1600 but
off at next check 1657.

On the remote`s waterfall, when tuned to reference frequency
15475.98-USB, the signal audio axually covers from 15476.20 to
15478.75 with sharp edges. I suspect interest in LRA36 has lagged as
no one else reports it today and so I don`t bother to remind everyone
of the regular Wed & Fri-only appearances (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9640, April 23 at 2236, surprise, RHC Spanish is here
ex-9650. 9640 had been in use last year until sudden switch to 9650,
and now the reverse; why? Still at 0136 April 24. 9650 had been in use
both morning and evening, so morning too on 9640? Yes, April 24 at
1334 check, S9 but undermodulated.

This is good news for Guinea, which could run 18 hours a day on its
only SW frequency 9650, tho has been quite irregular, as Carlos
Gonçalves, Portugal also notes. Let`s look at what else RHC confront
on each per Aoki, without great detail:

9650: Guinea, Taiwan, Sa`udi Arabia, Korea North
9640: CRI Spanish via East Turkistan until 2300; Korea South from
1530, Iran from 1550; should RHC be on that late but was only 11-15 &
21-05 on 9650; so 9640 is mostly clearer.

I`m fairly sure RHC did not QSY because of the local unID device I
have producing weak carriers every 50 kHz between ~7 and 15 MHz; with
BFO they are just a smidgin less than 50.000 kHz apart, offset pitch
ascending as I step up MHz by MHz; ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, April 24 at 0145, RHC Spanish is JBM and suptorted,
with much weaker parasites on 11840 & 11860; the latter also with
irregular beeps at a slow rate out of conflicting residual Cuban
jammer. The spur carrier makes them audible without BFO, beating
against it. 0213 recheck, still spurs, no beeps. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, April 24 at 0207, RHC Spanish undermodulated, talk
sounds the same as on 5025 Rebelde, a live event? But not // tho could
be same out of synch; but soon audio diverges completely. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, April 24 at 0410, RHC S9+10/20 suptorted in Spanish,
tho supposedly does not start until 0500 English. 6060 is also
undermod S9 Spanish; and 5040 Spanish; while English is at least on
6000 & 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545v, April 24 at 1531, I`m trying to detect Bayto
Yiakl, the American-based clandestine scheduled via RMI via FRANCE Wed
& Sat at 1530-1600 during B-season, but is it still there in A-season?
No remotes very close to target, and no signal to Kuwait, India,
Iceland, Brasil; and RSA is blocked.

But UTwente is getting a trace, despite being way too close to France
in skip zone. And it`s off-frequency as originally noted here:
17544.95971 at first and by 1537 Synch reading 17544.96728. No ID or
even audio of course, but if anything is there, this should be it.
Hope it does better to Eritrea! Greece remote also gets a JBA carrier,
not even enough to lock onto. Gone from UTw by 1606 check. BTW not a
single member of the WOR iog replied to my advance request, to check
this out on Wed Apr 21; as I had to be away from radio then (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Apr 23 at 0601, no signal from RNZI, nor any
carriers on 15720, 13840 or 13730; tho Vanuatu 11835 is audible. So
where is NZ? Maybe unpropagable higher frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, April 23 at 0552, big S9+10/20 open carrier, as
VON is back here warming up; 0557 recheck in great IS of African
percussion and winds; 0600 sign-on in Hausa with two words understood,
``Nigeria`` and ``kilohertz`` --- I wonder if they announce this
frequency when really on 11769.9+? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, UT Sat Apr 24 at 0118, pirate music S9-S7,
no doubt Ball Smacker Radio again fulfilling its regular schedule of 7
pm MDT Fridays. Yes, 0143 YL ID about this time, and concluding with
ten-pins crash noise. S9/+10 but really too much storm noise around
here; in fact, I have just switched to the indoor-longwire to avoid
lightning, and R75 stays on it rest of evening for logs thru 0410.
Many more logs here including detailed playlist until 0224*:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80643.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-USB, recheck for BSR at 0243 April 24, pirate
music but now on USB so different station; too much storm noise to
stay with it, but these say it`s Voice of Alice (Cooper):
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80649.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.47v, April 23 at 2357 via Bonaire SDR, R. Huanta Dos Mil
is still here, SAM offset varying .467 to .472. Instead of cutting off
circa 0030 as before, at rechex 0030, 0045 and 0100+ still going, vs
CODAR.

It`s not audible via the occasionally active Bogotá SDR, where I`m
also checking for the Colombian pirate on 6016+, active only on
weekends, but not yet heard on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. While confined to indoor antennas due to
storms, I`ve reactivated my Sony ICF SW07 with active antenna in a
south-facing window, April 24 after 0300 UT, first finding dead air on
5950 WRMI while other frequencies such as 5800 are OK.

At 0408, 5950 with S9+10 of dead air; also 5850, then bursts of non-BS
but TOM audio on and off on both (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 23 at 2015, REE NAm frequency is VP S2-S4,
while ME channel 15520 off the back is S1-S4, so that`s no help.
Friday token English at 2202: 17855 now S9/+10 but soon fading down;
15520 S9-S7; 11940 S9+10/S7 the S American frequency is best.

After news review, 2203 something about a music project in El Salvador
involving `El Sistema` as in Venezuela, and the native Nahuatl
language, which I thought was in México, or more correctly, they say,
Nahuat, without the -l -- I assume from only hearing it, not seeing it
spelt. Guest was Sonia Mejía; 2226 finally plays a bit of the music.
2230 check of 17855 finds it still poorly audible (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 23 at 2202, no signal from VOT direct, only
RTTY. However, at 2230 check, RTTY is off and VOT English is on, but
JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7602-USB, April 24 at 0113, sounds like a Civil Air Patrol
net, mainly person with high-pitched voice, either woman or child. Not
her? but some replies conclude with a beep. Keeps making contacts
spelling out fonetikally secret messages, but trouble copying each
other, asking for relays, etc. Extremely rigid para-military format.
0115 announces time as 0115 zulu; correct. Difficult copy here past
0124, due to weak signals, high storm noise level, and indoor antenna.
But:

7615-USB, April 24 at 0125, I encounter the known CAP net, generally
stronger, closer? signals, and one of them sounds like the same
woman/child just heard on 7602-USB. Keeps referring to YX, presumably
this net designator. Some of the tactical calls mentioned, either
callers or callees, not necessarily spelt right: Light Speed 41; Blue
Skies 52; Skyline 32; Rattlesnake 42; Fast Runner 37 & 31. Mentioned
QSY to NNC, which must be secret name of another frequency; Silver
something 34 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2083 monitoring: confirmed Friday
April 23 at 2030 on Challenger Radio, 594 kHz, Villa Estense, Italy,
as heard via nearby Noale KiwiSDR. Some program from Canada was cut
off by 2029 for IRRS ID and WOR start on time.

While I`m listening on line, also bring up WOR 2083 webcast via World
FM, NZ, and hear it ending at 2035 followed by ID in French! and
Spanish music, so WOR on time from 2006 UT Friday.

Also confirmed Sat Apr 24 at 1328, tail of 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA on
indoor wire, but SWRG a few minutes later plenty beepery via outside
antenna.

Also confirmed Sat Apr 24 from 1800:50 on IRRS Bulgaria? via UTwente,
S9+15/25; with annoying skipping on this SDR, but none such when tuned
via Carlow, Eire Kiwi, S9/+10. Earlier, 7290 cut on at 1759:48, with
Aïda theme already in progress, but haven`t heard it at all for a few
weeks with late joins. 1800:27 IRRS brief s/on only, no FSN headlines,
some dead air until WOR start 23 seconds later. Then time for my lunch
of a traditional breakfast, and recheck 1828 just in time to hear WOR
ending clearly after 1829; IRRS ID asking for reports by p-mail for a
numbered QSL; and into gospel music. Note: real times may have been a
few seconds earlier considering internet delay.

WOR 2083 also confirmed Sat Apr 24 from 1959:17 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM,
MO, via nearby KB0FX remote, almost 30 minutes late. Sorry, there are
now no SW times on NAm Sat afternoon or evening. Next:

0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0400]
2200vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW
2300 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Apr 24 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with
`AAAWWW`: I only dip in and out occasionally, as whenever I do, Angela
is yelling about something, such as calling George Floyd a thug and
that Chauvin should not have been convicted of murder. This is really
repellant, except to those of like mind.

Allan sounds reasonable by comparison, but not really: again he makes
no distinxion between socialism and communism (and Democrats), i.e.
Democratic Socialism as successfully practiced in western Europe, vs
Commie dictatorships. Of course that indistinxion we may blame on the
CCCP by its very name, giving socialism a bad name for sesquidecades.
Allan also mentions that he`s tired and thinking of retiring, turning
the operation over to Angela. At 0045 says it`s on both 6160 and 7490;
0052 into email. Somewhat more detail from John Carver:

``Tonight's show started on time on both 6160 and 7490 with 7490
having the better signal. The het appeared about a minute after the
top of the hour on 6160. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan is
feeling a little under the weather this evening and did some coughing
and sneezing during the show. Allan and Angela talking amongst
themselves for a bit. Allan stated that he and Angela had done some
sight seeing in Fla today. Into politics within fifteen minutes. Anti
taxes, anti stimulus checks, anti toll roads etc. This writer will not
repeat what was said but Angela then jumped in and started talking
about George Floyd. Allan didn't want to talk about it but got drawn
in. A lot of raised voice as Angela got worked up into her rant about
almost everything.

Phone call at 0032 pours more gas on the fire and also brought up many
more conspiracy theories that hadn't been in the mix earlier. Call
lasted for eight minutes and did nothing to calm Angela down.

Reading of emails at 0052 with most of the emails supporting Angela.
Things flare up again during the reading of emails. Closing prayer at
0059 into music at 0100 and then into Hal Turner. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Apr 24 at 0249, NO signal from 500 kW WLCR/WBCQ. Got
to be OFF, since 9265 WINB is still well audible (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 9265V, Apr 24 at 0249, WINB is S7-S9 with SWRG beepery; 0359
still on later than usual? with `Battle Hymn of the Republic`,
unmarred, and then 0401 the merely secular `Star Spangled Banner` is
treated as produxion music behind WINB sign-off, rather than Our
National Anthem, to be played with respect.

But does not get 9265 turned off or at least silenced, before another
program start `Back to Calvary` for a few seconds after 0402, then
off. I guess it continue on webcast. No sked for that but B2C is
supposedly at 9 pm EDT Fri = 01 UT Sat. America`s oldest private SW
station still doesn`t have its basic act together.

Schedule still dated March 14 shows `Worship at Home` nightly except
UT Sundays from 0300 - so it must be an hour long, but sign-off times
or length of final show are never given (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Apr 23 at 0601, R. Vanuatu with YL in presumed
Bislama, S4-S5, as fundamental 3945 must have just come on. If this
make it, NZ fundamental 11725 should too, but AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

So seemingly a keyboard slide off operation before
at Bejucal - former USSR relay site.

CUBA. 9640, April 23 at 2236, surprise, RHC Spanish is here
ex-9650. 9640 had been in use last year until sudden switch to 9650,
and now the reverse; why? Still at 0136 April 24. 9650 had been in use
both morning and evening, so morning too on 9640? Yes, April 24 at
1334 check, S9 but undermodulated.

This is good news for Guinea, which could run 18 hours a day on its
only SW frequency 9650, tho has been quite irregular, as Carlos
Gonçalves, Portugal also notes. Let`s look at what else RHC confront
on each per Aoki, without great detail:

9650: Guinea, Taiwan, Sa`udi Arabia, Korea North
9640: CRI Spanish via East Turkistan until 2300; Korea South from
1530, Iran from 1550; should RHC be on that late but was only 11-15 &
21-05 on 9650; so 9640 is mostly clearer.

I`m fairly sure RHC did not QSY because of the local unID device I
have producing weak carriers every 50 kHz between ~7 and 15 MHz; with
BFO they are just a smidgin less than 50.000 kHz apart, offset pitch
ascending as I step up MHz by MHz; ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sat Apr 24 at 1407 I check my own
outside antenna for any trace of LRA36, but none as expected for 300
watts, which is however still a `good DX catch` a few thousand km away
at Brasil remotes. I do bring Pardinho up at 1459, and there it is,
S5-S7 with a chronology for Apr 24, evidently `this day in history`.
Lots of IDs ensue, bits of music, 1519 multi-contact info, 1520
``hasta la próxima``, Antártida theme song.

But restarting at 1523, ``a partir de este momento``, informal ID as
``Radio San Gabriel`` without the Arcángel title; telling us in
Spanish, German, English; and Korean? --- thought it ended with
``imnida`` --- that the broadcast is in: Spanish! and shortly same
announcement repeated. 1545 rock song in English; still past 1600 but
off at next check 1657.

On the remote`s waterfall, when tuned to reference frequency
15475.98-USB, the signal audio axually covers from 15476.20 to
15478.75 with sharp edges. I suspect interest in LRA36 has lagged as
no one else reports it today and so I don`t bother to remind everyone
of the regular Wed & Fri-only appearances (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9640, April 23 at 2236, surprise, RHC Spanish is here
ex-9650. 9640 had been in use last year until sudden switch to 9650,
and now the reverse; why? Still at 0136 April 24. 9650 had been in use
both morning and evening, so morning too on 9640? Yes, April 24 at

21-05 on 9650; so 9640 is mostly clearer.

I`m fairly sure RHC did not QSY because of the local unID device I
have producing weak carriers every 50 kHz between ~7 and 15 MHz; with
BFO they are just a smidgin less than 50.000 kHz apart, offset pitch
ascending as I step up MHz by MHz; ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, April 24 at 0145, RHC Spanish is JBM and suptorted,
with much weaker parasites on 11840 & 11860; the latter also with
irregular beeps at a slow rate out of conflicting residual Cuban
jammer. The spur carrier makes them audible without BFO, beating
against it. 0213 recheck, still spurs, no beeps. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, April 24 at 0207, RHC Spanish undermodulated, talk
sounds the same as on 5025 Rebelde, a live event? But not // tho could
be same out of synch; but soon audio diverges completely. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, April 24 at 0410, RHC S9+10/20 suptorted in Spanish,
tho supposedly does not start until 0500 English. 6060 is also
undermod S9 Spanish; and 5040 Spanish; while English is at least on
6000 & 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545v, April 24 at 1531, I`m trying to detect Bayto
Yiakl, the American-based clandestine scheduled via RMI via FRANCE Wed
& Sat at 1530-1600 during B-season, but is it still there in A-season?
No remotes very close to target, and no signal to Kuwait, India,
Iceland, Brasil; and RSA is blocked.

But UTwente is getting a trace, despite being way too close to France
in skip zone. And it`s off-frequency as originally noted here:
17544.95971 at first and by 1537 Synch reading 17544.96728. No ID or
even audio of course, but if anything is there, this should be it.
Hope it does better to Eritrea! Greece remote also gets a JBA carrier,
not even enough to lock onto. Gone from UTw by 1606 check. BTW not a
single member of the WOR iog replied to my advance request, to check
this out on Wed Apr 21; as I had to be away from radio then (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Apr 23 at 0601, no signal from RNZI, nor any
carriers on 15720, 13840 or 13730; tho Vanuatu 11835 is audible. So
where is NZ? Maybe unpropagable higher frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, April 23 at 0552, big S9+10/20 open carrier, as
VON is back here warming up; 0557 recheck in great IS of African
percussion and winds; 0600 sign-on in Hausa with two words understood,
``Nigeria`` and ``kilohertz`` --- I wonder if they announce this
frequency when really on 11769.9+? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, UT Sat Apr 24 at 0118, pirate music S9-S7,
no doubt Ball Smacker Radio again fulfilling its regular schedule of 7
pm MDT Fridays. Yes, 0143 YL ID about this time, and concluding with
ten-pins crash noise. S9/+10 but really too much storm noise around
here; in fact, I have just switched to the indoor-longwire to avoid
lightning, and R75 stays on it rest of evening for logs thru 0410.
Many more logs here including detailed playlist until 0224*:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80643.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-USB, recheck for BSR at 0243 April 24, pirate
music but now on USB so different station; too much storm noise to
stay with it, but these say it`s Voice of Alice (Cooper):
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80649.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.47v, April 23 at 2357 via Bonaire SDR, R. Huanta Dos Mil
is still here, SAM offset varying .467 to .472. Instead of cutting off
circa 0030 as before, at rechex 0030, 0045 and 0100+ still going, vs
CODAR.

It`s not audible via the occasionally active Bogotá SDR, where I`m
also checking for the Colombian pirate on 6016+, active only on
weekends, but not yet heard on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. While confined to indoor antennas due to
storms, I`ve reactivated my Sony ICF SW07 with active antenna in a
south-facing window, April 24 after 0300 UT, first finding dead air on
5950 WRMI while other frequencies such as 5800 are OK.

At 0408, 5950 with S9+10 of dead air; also 5850, then bursts of non-BS
but TOM audio on and off on both (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 23 at 2015, REE NAm frequency is VP S2-S4,
while ME channel 15520 off the back is S1-S4, so that`s no help.
Friday token English at 2202: 17855 now S9/+10 but soon fading down;
15520 S9-S7; 11940 S9+10/S7 the S American frequency is best.

After news review, 2203 something about a music project in El Salvador
involving `El Sistema` as in Venezuela, and the native Nahuatl
language, which I thought was in México, or more correctly, they say,
Nahuat, without the -l -- I assume from only hearing it, not seeing it
spelt. Guest was Sonia Mejía; 2226 finally plays a bit of the music.
2230 check of 17855 finds it still poorly audible (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 23 at 2202, no signal from VOT direct, only
RTTY. However, at 2230 check, RTTY is off and VOT English is on, but
JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7602-USB, April 24 at 0113, sounds like a Civil Air Patrol
net, mainly person with high-pitched voice, either woman or child. Not
her? but some replies conclude with a beep. Keeps making contacts
spelling out fonetikally secret messages, but trouble copying each
other, asking for relays, etc. Extremely rigid para-military format.
0115 announces time as 0115 zulu; correct. Difficult copy here past
0124, due to weak signals, high storm noise level, and indoor antenna.
But:

7615-USB, April 24 at 0125, I encounter the known CAP net, generally
stronger, closer? signals, and one of them sounds like the same
woman/child just heard on 7602-USB. Keeps referring to YX, presumably
this net designator. Some of the tactical calls mentioned, either
callers or callees, not necessarily spelt right: Light Speed 41; Blue
Skies 52; Skyline 32; Rattlesnake 42; Fast Runner 37 & 31. Mentioned
QSY to NNC, which must be secret name of another frequency; Silver
something 34 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2083 monitoring: confirmed Friday
April 23 at 2030 on Challenger Radio, 594 kHz, Villa Estense, Italy,
as heard via nearby Noale KiwiSDR. Some program from Canada was cut
off by 2029 for IRRS ID and WOR start on time.

While I`m listening on line, also bring up WOR 2083 webcast via World
FM, NZ, and hear it ending at 2035 followed by ID in French! and
Spanish music, so WOR on time from 2006 UT Friday.

Also confirmed Sat Apr 24 at 1328, tail of 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA on
indoor wire, but SWRG a few minutes later plenty beepery via outside
antenna.

Also confirmed Sat Apr 24 from 1800:50 on IRRS Bulgaria? via UTwente,
S9+15/25; with annoying skipping on this SDR, but none such when tuned
via Carlow, Eire Kiwi, S9/+10. Earlier, 7290 cut on at 1759:48, with
Aïda theme already in progress, but haven`t heard it at all for a few
weeks with late joins. 1800:27 IRRS brief s/on only, no FSN headlines,
some dead air until WOR start 23 seconds later. Then time for my lunch
of a traditional breakfast, and recheck 1828 just in time to hear WOR
ending clearly after 1829; IRRS ID asking for reports by p-mail for a
numbered QSL; and into gospel music. Note: real times may have been a
few seconds earlier considering internet delay.

WOR 2083 also confirmed Sat Apr 24 from 1959:17 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM,
MO, via nearby KB0FX remote, almost 30 minutes late. Sorry, there are
now no SW times on NAm Sat afternoon or evening. Next:

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Apr 24 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with
`AAAWWW`: I only dip in and out occasionally, as whenever I do, Angela
is yelling about something, such as calling George Floyd a thug and
that Chauvin should not have been convicted of murder. This is really
repellant, except to those of like mind.

Allan sounds reasonable by comparison, but not really: again he makes
no distinxion between socialism and communism (and Democrats), i.e.
Democratic Socialism as successfully practiced in western Europe, vs
Commie dictatorships. Of course that indistinxion we may blame on the
CCCP by its very name, giving socialism a bad name for sesquidecades.
Allan also mentions that he`s tired and thinking of retiring, turning
the operation over to Angela. At 0045 says it`s on both 6160 and 7490;
0052 into email. Somewhat more detail from John Carver:

``Tonight's show started on time on both 6160 and 7490 with 7490
having the better signal. The het appeared about a minute after the
top of the hour on 6160. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan is
feeling a little under the weather this evening and did some coughing
and sneezing during the show. Allan and Angela talking amongst
themselves for a bit. Allan stated that he and Angela had done some
sight seeing in Fla today. Into politics within fifteen minutes. Anti
taxes, anti stimulus checks, anti toll roads etc. This writer will not
repeat what was said but Angela then jumped in and started talking
about George Floyd. Allan didn't want to talk about it but got drawn
in. A lot of raised voice as Angela got worked up into her rant about
almost everything.

Phone call at 0032 pours more gas on the fire and also brought up many
more conspiracy theories that hadn't been in the mix earlier. Call
lasted for eight minutes and did nothing to calm Angela down.

Reading of emails at 0052 with most of the emails supporting Angela.
Things flare up again during the reading of emails. Closing prayer at
0059 into music at 0100 and then into Hal Turner. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Apr 24 at 0249, NO signal from 500 kW WLCR/WBCQ. Got
to be OFF, since 9265 WINB is still well audible (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 9265V, Apr 24 at 0249, WINB is S7-S9 with SWRG beepery; 0359
still on later than usual? with `Battle Hymn of the Republic`,
unmarred, and then 0401 the merely secular `Star Spangled Banner` is
treated as produxion music behind WINB sign-off, rather than Our
National Anthem, to be played with respect.

But does not get 9265 turned off or at least silenced, before another
program start `Back to Calvary` for a few seconds after 0402, then
off. I guess it continue on webcast. No sked for that but B2C is
supposedly at 9 pm EDT Fri = 01 UT Sat. America`s oldest private SW
station still doesn`t have its basic act together.

Schedule still dated March 14 shows `Worship at Home` nightly except
UT Sundays from 0300 - so it must be an hour long, but sign-off times
or length of final show are never given (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Apr 23 at 0601, R. Vanuatu with YL in presumed
Bislama, S4-S5, as fundamental 3945 must have just come on. If this
make it, NZ fundamental 11725 should too, but AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
