This message is sent by Jean Burnell <jburnell@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
The following MW logs were made at a location just outside St. John's,
Newfoundland, Canada. There some tentative and unID stations among
these...ideas regarding the identity of any of these, and any other cogent
comments would be welcomed!

Receiver: Icom IC-R71A
Antenna: long-wire (240-meters) aimed at Britain
Location: Middle Cove (near St. John's), Newfoundland, Canada
Dates and times are UTC:
570 GREENLAND KNR, Nuuk, 24 Nov, 0203-0206 - Up briefly above the domestic
QRM and splatter from VOCM w/ talk in Greenlandic, // 720. (I could not detect
the other listed KNR outlets on 650, 810 and 900). SIO 232
720 GREENLAND KNR, Simiutaq, 24 Nov, 0147-0203 - Man and woman w/ nx in
Danish, nx ended at 0201 then mx bridge of 10-15 secs, time tone, then
Greenlandic talk. QRM mainly from CHTN; SIO 433-2
864 UNID, 23 Nov, 1950-2003, 2040 - Religious programming in
American-accented EE (sounded like a syndicated US program); beneath a huge
Egyptian signal and also a little QRM from Spain; SIO 222-1. Can anyone tell me
who this is?
954 UNID, 23 Nov, 1934 - Beneath Spain, AA mx by man; SIO 322. This was
definitely not // 7210, which I had IDed as Qatar a few days earlier.
963 FINLAND YLE, Pori, 23 Nov, 2134 - Woman in Finnish talking about sex;
972 UKRAINE UR2, Kopani, 23 Nov, 2139 - Clas organ mx, clear signal (SIO
444); // 1242 (poor), 1377 (poor), and 1404 (fair). No hint of anything on 1378
kHz or on 1567 kHz.
1017 ENGLAND tent WABC, Shrewsbury, 23 Nov, 2145-2151, 2159-2205 - Beneath a
generally good German signal, glimpses of a stn in British-accented EE w/ old
pops. I think WABC is the only British stn on this freq, but I would have loved
to discern an ID. SIO 221
1260 tent WALES Marcher Gold, Wrexham, 23 Nov, 2056-2101 - Just fragments,
but caught a stn telephone number just before 2100: 01978 751543, which I think
is a Wrexham number; SIO 222-1. Initially had a Russian or Ukrainian/Engish
lesson here but this faded away; freq was being overwhelmed by WEZE.
1404 IRAN IRIB, Rasht, 23 Nov, 1938-1948 - EE news and "Political
Commentary"; over the Ukraine until 1948 when Iran faded down considerably;
peaks to SIO 333.
1413 OMAN BBC Relay, Masirah Is., 23 Nov, 2044-2048 - Only BBC WS noted in
EE while looking for Premier R.; SIO 232
1466.9 MOLDOVA VO Russia, Grigoriopol, 23 Nov, 2105-2113 - EE pgm w/ news,
headlines, and "News and Views"; // 1494 (which was much better); QRM presumably
from TWR, SIO 322
1485 ENGLAND BBC R. Humberside, 23 Nov, 2007-2011 - Discussion of local
issues, people introduced from that part of the UK, one "BBC Humberside" ID
noted; the QRM was mainly another BBC station w/ a jazz program; SIO 322
1485 UNID, 23 Nov, 2035 - Very briefly and weakly w/ considerable QRM: seemed
like really hideous heavy metal mx -- NRK on 1314 was playing garbage by Napalm
Death at the time, but the 1485 signal was too fractured to establish a // --
1503 ENGLAND BBC R. Stoke on Trent, 23 Nov, 1918-1931 - Clas mx pgm,
publicity for local concert events, ID as "BBC Radio Stoke"; QRM from an unID
stn in AA and rock mx from likely Poland; SIO 322.
1530 ENGLAND tent BBC R. Essex, Southend, 23 Nov, 1931 - Jingle and hype
for "Jukebox", short clips of 4 oldies, then DJ asked listeners to phone 03(or
2)45-445512 to vote for one of them; faded away shortly afterwards; SIO 322. I
can't find what the British 0345 city code is, but 0245 corresponds to R. Essex.
The other two British stations on 1530 would have telephone numbers that do not
match at all.
1530 ICELAND Navy Broadcasting Svc., Kefklavik, 23 Nov, 2018-2031 -
US-accented ancrs w/ many PSA's, some for military programs, C+W mx pgm; mix of
stations here w/ Vaticana and this dominant; SIO 322
