** BRAZIL [and non]. 11780, Nov 25 at 2302, RNA-AM is S9+5/15 at
Bonaire SDR, compared to RNA-DRM on new 11875-11880-11885 as first
covered in my last report; which is now S8-S9 when the noise is tuned
in SAM mode, as still no audio decoding in DRM mode, at first
displaying 0.00 kpbs, then jumps to 19.80. I may not know how to get
the best results out of DRM SDRs? At 2308 I compare it to OCB-DRM on
7340-7345-7350 which displays S9+15/20, 9.76 kbps with audio cutting
on at times.

At 0055, I try Pardinho, Brasil SDR which does hear the noise on
11880, but with ACI splash from 11885 CRI in English. RNA-DRM is
supposedly running 24 hours, and being experimental may explain the
problems in receiving it. They were supposedly going to switch to more
user-friendly parameters the next day. The Brasília SDR would be
interesting to try if available, at local? range (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13630 & 13771 approx., Nov 26 at 1507, RHC FM spurblobs with
F# tone, S6-S7 out of 13700-AM, but JBA on second-orders circa 13561 &
13842. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 26 at 1555, CRI Plus relay is S9+40 but suptorted!
= suppressed and distorted modulation. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

First SWBCs confirmed UT Friday November 27 at 0130 on WRMIs, checked
direct only: 5850 VG S9+20/30; 5010 S9/+10 but sounds much weaker in
noise; and 9955 VG S9+20. Note: technical problems delayed full
editing completion in time for this, so played without the usual
opening, which is there on all repeats (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490), Nov 27 at 0300-0400, enjoyed hearing Uncle Bill`s TG
special with participation of other WBCQ entertainment shows, while
writing this report, via webcast. Would like to have plugged it on WOR
2062, but it would have been a past-thing on all my repeats except for
the very first airing, and AFAIK they are not retrievable later, altho
YouTube or something could spare the bandwidth (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 660, November 26 at 0704 UT, mix of stations but silly
sports news is dominant, and 0706 WFAN ID from New York; not often
heard here, nor would I ever want to, vs Mexico, Cuba, Balch Springs
but no sign of KTNN AZ/NM, which recently had been reported back east,
even in NY state, despite supposed to notch a null toward NYC; so I
guess it`s back in whack. 50 kW KTNN is not hard to hear here when ND
around SR or SS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2062)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 11875-11880-11885, Nov 25 at 1949, TWR Bonaire
SDR is getting an S6 steady DRM noise signal here, ~9 dB SNR, but
nothing decoding to the ear. Via Richard Langley, this has just been
reported in the DRMNA iogroup as the new frequency for RNA DRM tests;
and it`s already shown on the SDR menu as available 24 hours. This
should make for an interesting collision with RHC-AM at 2100-2300 in
French, English for Africa. Further monitoring:

2055 & 2058.5, break of a few seconds in DRM noise and back on, more
to come: 2100 no sign of RHC yet, nor by 2108, just DRM. I have other
stuff to do and not rechecked until 2134 --- now RHC is on, in
Brazuguese, no less, along with the RNA DRM, roughly equal levels here
and Bonaire, then RHC mostly atop but with fades; 2139.5 & 2142, more
momentary breaks in DRM, but RHC is also off at 2141-2144. Meanwhile
someone else is trying to hear 11880-DRM via Bonaire from Patos e
Minas, Brazil. And so it goes --- (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 6020, Nov 25 at 1900, S8 via UTwente SDR, CRI theme, ID in
Chinese and then ``Ju Flet ---`` which nails it as Albanian. Then YL
narration with sound-effects, not just music.

This caused confusion when first reported from Europe, but now we know
from Albanian expert Ullmar Qvick in Sweden, BC-DX:

``CHINA/ALBANIA, RADIO EJANI on 6020 kHz heard at 1900-1957 UT has
caused confusion. This is the CRI service in Albanian using the
superpower tx in Shijiazhuang and carrying the program of the
China-owned FM station Radio Ejani (Radio Come! in Albanian)
broadcasting fram Tirana and Durres on 106.0 MHz since 2013.

Pop music programs with frequent IDs "Radio Ejani" and final CRI
announcement in Albanian from Beijing during the 1-hour transmission.
The tx then carries CRI in Polish at 2000 z (Ullmar Qvick,
Norrköping-SWEDEN, Nov 22)``

Like several other languages, CRI is unable to produce own programs in
Albanian, so this is the roundabout substitute. Kai Ludwig replies:

``In case I keep forgetting to check it: Should be // 7385 kHz. The
inserted CRI ID suggests that this simply replaces their own
Albanian-language radio productions.

Remember that in last year CRI made drastic cuts to its linear radio
programming, reducing many language services to hardly more than music
and already telling listeners in Brazil that the radio service in
Portuguese has ceased.

Radio Ejani just *is* CRI:
https://www.facebook.com/pg/RadioEjani/about/

No contacts in Albania whatsoever, so apparently the two FM
transmitters just take a feed from Beijing, and this program output is
now also routed to the transmitters in China previously used for
separate Albanian shortwave broadcasts, if they still did them for
some time after 2013 at all. Kai`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Nov 25 at 0636, VON is back on tonight, S9+10/20
but undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Re: 6924.884-AM, Nov 25 at 0223, VP S7-S8 music,
only pirate activity now; 0232 brief announcement, more music, LA?
0253 still going, at 0254 into MCW, but fading and only partially
copiable and perhaps with errors; ``CA - OA - OIAEN - ZAN - ORA -
ABEC``, until 0258*. Thought it might be Nova, which does CW IDs, but
no fit. I was hoping someone on HFU would have IDed this and/or copied
the code (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Ron Howard replied: ``Glenn, Was also listening to this station.
Please listen to my recording and let me know what you can make out.
Thanks.

Nov 25, on 6924.88 AM, tuned in at 0149 UT to non-stop LA music; 0206,
CW (assume ID?) followed by spoken ID (loop); 0209, test tone,
followed by more of the same type of music. Afraid I have no ability
to deal with CW and very little to deal with Spanish. My audio of one
minute of music, then CW ID, followed by spoken IDs (loop), posted at
https://bit.ly/3l1Dg03
Thanks very much for any help! Ron California``

I replied: ``Ron, Great, clear recording. CW is
ZANAHORIA EN ESCABECHE
Then M&W repeat multiple times ``ésta es la zanahoria en escabeche``

Put that phrase in search and it means ``spicy pickled carrots`` --- a
Mexican dish; ah yes, I`ve had those without knowing their name -- but
-- now what? Well, Mexico is really in North America... Glenn``

Ron Howard refers to a belated log of this from Chris Smolinski at
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74793.0.html

``I received this station last night, after a somewhat laborious
session of listening to the SDR recordings I came up with this
logging:

ZANAHORIA EN ESCABECHE 6924.9 AM 0111 UTC 25 Nov 2020
« on: Today at 15:01 » SDR recording catch

0111 Carrier came on
0117 Music, Jorge Negrete "Ay Jaliso No Te Rajes", SIO 333
0121 Jorge Negrete "Yo Soy Mexicano"
0126 Jorge Negrete "Cocula"
0128 Jorge Negrete "Juan Charrasqueado"
0131 ZANAHORIA EN ESCABECHE repeated several times in CW
0134 SS OM "Esta es la ... " repeated, signal has faded by now, down
to SIO 222 and then most 111 with some occasional peaks.
0136 CW again: ZANAHORIA EN ESCABECHE
0138 Music, too weak for Shazam.
0155 Mariachi Pablo Olmedo "Ay Jalisco No Te Rajes"
0206 CW again, weak.
0210 Back to music
0215 "Asunto Pendiente"
0254 CW, weak, sounds like ZANAHORIA EN ESCABECHE
0258 Carrier off

I would greatly appreciate an eQSL if the station operator happens to
see this logging, thank you! « Last Edit: Today at 15:05 by
ChrisSmolinski » Logged Chris Smolinski Westminster, MD``

As for the carrot pirate, no telling which side of border it`s on but
would be neat if it`s really in Mexico (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 420-MCW kHz, Nov 25 at 0650, ND beacon FQ, which is 25 watts
from Fairmont, Minnesota, also with a much weaker understation I can`t
fully copy with storm crashes, but rather sure there is an X in the
call. The only one listed around here is on 419, TX, 50 watts in
Lawrenceville - Gwinnett, Georgia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring; next:

UNIDENTIFIED. 17545.06V, Nov 25 at 1539, JBA talk, off-frequency and
wobbling so it`s hard to measure to 3 decimal places. Only thing known
here is that Eritrean clandestine Bayto Yiakl, but it`s supposedly
Saturdays only at 1530-1600 via France, and this is Wednesday. Maybe
expanded as the conflict along the border with Ethiopia is heating up.
Would not expect ISSoudun to be that far off-frequency, so maybe some
other site like UAE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18127-USB, Nov 25 at 1530 and earlier, ragchew sounds
like Plattdeutsch; mentions a VA9- call, not sure if his in Canada or
a contact (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARMENIA. 9290, Nov 24 at 1355 past 1400 with no break, S Asian
language at S6-S9. Still there but weaker at 1417 vs running-H2O QRM.
It`s TWR-India via Gavar, in Hindi daily 1345-1415, amid a total span
of 1315-1445 in various languages. Aoki/NDXC shows Hindi until 1420 on
weekdays, otherwise English until 1425*, extended to 1445* weekends
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. UNIDENTIFIED. 4925, Nov 25 at 0217, JBA talk, equivalent VP
signal to S Americans on 4940, 4885. Only 4925 in EiBi is Korean
numbers not at this hour but if on would not be propagating. WRTH 2020
has 5 kW Rádio Rural, Tefé, Amazonas, Brasil as irregular. Aoki/NDXC
shows 0930-0200 as if regular. Not reported lately, but found this
from JRX in Brasil: ``4925. Apr 15, 2020. 0313-0333, Rádio Educação
Rural de Tefé, Tefé-AM, in Portuguese. A musical program with variety
songs; Female voice; A song; Male voice, ID and announcements; 0331 A
song; 0333 Ends and sign-off. Poor reception.`` I don`t get around to
checking TWR Bonaire SDR for this until 0333 --- nothing there (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer search WOOB November 24 at 1346: JBA Chinese or
JBA carriers: 11500, 11460, 11440, 11150, 11100, 10870; none in the
14s, 13s, 12s; 9315, 9300, 9180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Nov 24 at 2205, RHC is dead air, then ramps up to JBM
Spanish, perhaps a typical sign-on warmup, only S4-S7 as is English on
11880. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But recheck at 2348, 11850 is
off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Nov 25 at 0222, RHC English is S5-S7, undermodulated,
unusable. Only //, 6000 is even worse, S9/+10 and JBM. Somethings are
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.884-AM, Nov 25 at 0223, VP S7-S8 music, only
pirate activity now; 0232 brief announcement, more music, LA? 0253
still going, at 0254 into MCW, but fading and only partially copiable
and perhaps with errors; ``CA - OA - OIAEN - ZAN - ORA - ABEC``, until
0258*. Thought it might be Nova, which does CW IDs, but no fit.

KIPM was reported on ``6925`` as late as 0130, but in USB:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74782.0.html

Stardust Five Laser Radio was on 6925-AM, but not since 2158 Nov 24:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74777.0.html

I was hoping someone on HFU would have IDed this and/or copied the
code. Nor any old hits there on the exacter frequency 6924.9 -- but I
had such a log last Feb, which led back to Captain Morgan SW in May
2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA. 18146.8-USB, Nov 24 at 2155, HP3SS working US stations, at
30 miles from Costa Rican border in western Panamá. Sounds like an
American --- no, Canadian, without a specific address in QRZ.com:
``HP3SS Panama flag Panama, Robby Robertson, Volcan, Panama. QSL: via
AC2OV`` and: ``Please do not send mail to Panama. I will not recieve
it. Please do not QSL via buro. I do not recieve cards from the QSL
buro. I have been living in Panama since October 2015. I operated as
HP3/VY2SS for a year while I waited for my Panama call. I enjoy
contesting and DX. My equipment is: Flex 6400 and Ameritron AL-1200.
Antennas are: 20M-6M - 3 element Steppir yagi at 75 feet. Please QSL
direct to AC2OV with SAE and sufficient return postage. Previous calls
- VY2SS, CY9SS, VE2/VY2SS, VE7ARS, VE8HF, VE3FYB, VE1AGN``.

BTW, in my daytime bandscans between the ham and bc bands, I routinely
tune across the 17.9+ MHz aero band --- and *never* encounter any
activity. EiBi lists a number of stations around the world available
24 hours, starting with Albrook, Panamá on 17901. Maybe the aeronauts
are writing off this band as dead even when it isn`t (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 414-MCW kHz, Nov 24 at 0708 UT, ND beacon ATS, which is 25
watts from ArTeSia, New Mexico; also audible tuned to 412-USB. Last
logged Oct 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21250-USB, Nov 24 at 1859, WW2DX calling CQDX 15, good
signal yet the OSOB; what a desirable vanity callsign: ``WW2DX USA
flag USA, Lee J Imber, Pawling, NY 12564 USA``. Per QRZ.com he`s quite
the DX-peditioner, including Sable Island postponed from Oct 2020 to
Oct 2021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
November 24 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+15/20 via UTwente; at 0121
check direct, poor S8-S9.

Also confirmed UT Tue Nov 24 at new time 0200 on WRMI 9955, S9+10

** U S A. I neglected to include the time of UB`s TG special, fixed:
(7490.1v), UT Tue Nov 24 from 0000, WBCQ webcast cuts off some wacko
conspiracy talk for 50% of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`, replay from 25
hours ago when it all aired; starting with a scrotum song, but we have
been warned. Also plugs his TG special UT Fri Nov 27 *at 0300-0400* on
6160v & 7490v. I often catch this semi-repeat due to a scheduling
conflict the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 25 at 0215, WTWW-2 is S9+30 with request request,
not so distorted as the music before and after it, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10533-USB, Nov 24 at 1348, 2-way in language, maybe
Indonesian, as I am patrolling for CNR1 jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CANADA. 284-MCW kHz, Nov 23 at 0719 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from
The Pas, Manitoba. Evidently the name is not Anglo-French;
The Canadian Encyclopedia says: ``The origin of the name is uncertain,
but it may be the Cree word W'passkwayaw, meaning “wooded narrows” (in
the river) ... The Pas Band (now the Opaskwayak Cree Nation)
surrendered the townsite in 1906 and moved to reserve lands on the
north bank of the Saskatchewan River. Jun 11, 2019``. Well, cutting it
to three letters is a whew goodthing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Nov 23 at 0311, quick check of Bonaire SDR finds
usual good signal of gospel huxter in Spanish from anonymous mystery
missionary station -- AMMS? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9535, Nov 22 at 2327, RHC JBA under multiple
collision, Commies vs Commies: Aoki/NDXC shows CNR1 jamming, RFA
Tibetan via Kuwait; and also CRI English via Kunming. In fact seems to
be an echo on the Chinese from more than one site. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6145, Nov 23 at 0312, no RHC English signal, at
Bonaire remote, while 9700 is JBA, 6000 S8. To Missouri SDR, 9700 is
VG S9+10, no 6145, and 6000 is S9+30 but JBM distorted --- must be
`DXers Unlimited` minus Arnie as his sub talks about propagation.

Another check at 0525: 9700 is on over CCI which would be Turkey; 6100
and 6060 are absent; 6000 suptorted; 6145 in Romanian which must be
RRI, perhaps explaining why RHC evacuated tho I had not noticed this
hour collision before. By 0608, 6100 is finally on, VG S9+30/40, so
starting at 0600? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 23 at 2111, RHC in French also reactivated and //
synchronized 15140 distorted; 13680 now in Portuguese poor at S8-S9.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 15540, 15530, 11970, Nov 23 from 1800, no signals from
anything on R. Kuwait frequencies. Pedro Sedano, Spain, had recorded
the 0800 UT sign-off announcement on 15530 saying that was on 11970
and English would resume at 1800-2100 on 15540 for Europe and North
America --- altho morning English recently resumed replacing Arabic,
still no evening English, unless on and not propagating, but I doubt
that, rather a very old recorded outdated announcement. But perhaps
there be hope. That transmission presumably still exist at least on FM
& AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11610, Nov 23 at 2145, MWV in correct language,
Chinese, always VG >> 4.000 MHz higher, 15610 WEWN English; other MWV
frequency 9765 in correct Portuguese altho the final praise song
sounds Spanish until 2157 dead air with no closure (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 6185-, Nov 22 at 2319, XEPPM is S9, as always
undermodulated, but now also with CCI, Chinese? No, per Aoki/NDXC, CRI
in Mongolian this hour via Xianyang 59 site. Mexico`s last SW station
don`t get no respect, as Ivo Ivanov also notes:

``Upcoming frequency change of NHK World Radio Japan via MBR
Moosbrunn, Austria, ex-6155 from Nov 30:
0430-0500 NF 6185*MOS 300 kW / non-dir to WeEu English Mon-Fri
0500-0530 NF 6185*MOS 300 kW / non-dir to WeEu English Sat/Sun

** U S A. 274-MCW kHz, Nov 23 at 0718 UT, ND beacon RG, which is 25
watts from Red WinG, Minnesota, a.k.a. Shoe City; and not to be
confused with our RG on 350 in OKC. I was tuned to 272-USB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: missed checking UT
Mon Nov 23 at 0030 on WRMI 7730; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, G S9+10 at UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, S8-S9 at UTwente;
also on 5800, S9+25 into Pardinho, Brasil SDR; also almost
synchronized on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0400 on Area 51 webcast, after a
Miller Beer commercial(?); but on WBCQ 6159.9 direct at 0427, JBA vs
HNL = high noise level.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 23 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10/20/30
direct, as usual right after 2+ minutes of music fill from R. Prague
relay, no ID break. No pulse jamming? Only audible during some RMI
fades; still at good level toward end of semi-hour. You never know
whether this transmission will be VG or JBA.

Also confirmed Mon Nov 23 from 1901 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria,
recorded via UTwente and checked later: *1857.5 carrier on quieting
but still with annoying ACI splash continuing during WOR; almost 1900
IRRS sign-on with Milano PO Box and phone, 3 quick FSN headlines and
then WOR: spotchecked intact for next 13 minutes at least. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0200 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?] NEW
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 5850, Nov 22 at 2314, Brother HyStairical is VP, only S6-S7,
hard to believe it`s WRMI on NW beam which normally blasts in here.
It`s as weak or even weaker than never-strong 5950 to WNW. Can`t be
propagation, since 5800 WRMI is VG S9+25/30 with SMTV despite aimed
SSE from FL. 5850 must be temporarily QRP, and is back up to full
strength checked a few hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490.1v), UT Tue Nov 24 from 0000, WBCQ webcast cuts off
some wacko conspiracy talk for 50% of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`,
replay from 25 hours ago when it all aired; starting with a scrotum
song, but we have been warned. Also plugs his TG special UT Fri Nov 27
on 6160v & 7490v. I often catch this semi-repeat due to a scheduling
conflict the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6906, Nov 23 at 0311, quick check of Bonaire SDR finds
still no trace of an ROCV signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALASKA [non]. 13670, Sun Nov 22 at 1840, clear speech by YL in
Russian about Yesus, i.e. KNLS via its other station MWV MADAGASCAR;
tnx to tip from Richard Langley. This hour is supposed to be `African
Pathways Radio` in English. RL has previously heard them running KNLS
in English. Now it`s not only the wrong ``station`` but wrong
language. It`s almost as if they are randomly grabbing program files
to put on the transmitter. 1847 indoctrinated kids singing `Jesus
Loves Me`.

Transmission break before 1900, but 13670 back on by 1902, again in
Russian! Instead of Arabic scheduled now. Also S7-S9 direct. 1927 KNLS
ID. Axually this seems to be a transmitter mixup. The other one is
scheduled in Russian at 18-19 on 9880, 19-20 on 9845. What`s on them
now?

Well, at 1940, 9845 via UTwente is playing ``Light My Fire``, in
English, hardly a gospel song, extended version. 1946 segué to another
hard rock song with screamer, maybe Janis Joplin? I`m no
rockficionado. 1951 another familiar hard rock song to 1955*, never
any announcements, so can`t tell what language service this was
supposed to be --- but hardly the fare to be expected out of World
Christian Broadcasting, despite its relatively diverse format on KNLS
& MWV. Could it be that they have rented out one transmitter to
something else, and consolidated their own programming on the other
one, resulting in these language mixups at Mahajanga?

13710, after 9845 goes off, I retune UTwente to the next scheduled
frequency for Arabic at 2000, and its carrier pops on at *1955.8,
S9+20; 2000 ME music starts, and Radio Feda ID mentioning Mauritania,
and so really in MWV Arabic.

11965, checked at 2001, Arabic song, and announcements by same M&W but
no mention of Feda and definitely not // 13710 --- two separate Arabic
programs at once. Instead of scheduled English. Later does mention
Feda in passing. 2015 with times in Greenwich and Qahira. WHAT is
going on here?? All of these with VG signals into UTwente.

BTW, I misspoke on WOR 2061, about previous MWV anomalies, sometimes
interchanging Chinese hour with Arabic, not ``African`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 22 at 0720, only RHC English frequency still on,
S9+20 but suptorted as Arnie is speaking, Breakthru? 6000, 6145 are
off, 6060 has not activated yet, and 9700 last night is gone tonight.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Sunday Nov 22 at 1442, RHC has managed to get back on
new scheduled frequency, after misrunning 6950 both morning and
evening yesterday, replacement for 7350. Amid `En Contacto` with Marta
Rios, and then Prof. Arnaldo Coro Antich himself. Listened to a bit
more of it on 13740 & 13700, without spurs today. Arnie is almost
incomprehensible, babbling lickety-split --- you know, this almost
sounds like he`s artificially sped up.

Somewhere I have a cassette recorder with that feature, variable speed
playback, so you can compress speech and listen to something in less
time than originally, yet without raising the pitch as would happen by
simply playing a reel tape faster. Is he really doing that in order
to cram more content into limited time available? Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 22 at 1515, CRI Plus relay is S9+40, sup-torted
and hummy. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420, November 22 at 0722, great Greek Orthodox
chanting since it`s Sunday morning, violating separation of church and
state; meanwhile:

9645, Sun Nov 22 at 0723, Slavic chanting and singing at S5-S8, must
be Vatican Radio, i.e. Ukrainian liturgy, from SMG, 0705-0800 Sundays
only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. See ALASKA [non]!

** U S A. 383-MCW kHz, Nov 22 at 0729 UT, ND beacon CNP, 25 watts from
Chappell, Nebraska. Axually could not copy third letter due to fade,
but has to be this.

400-MCW kHz, Nov 22 at 0728 UT, ND beacon AHQ, which is 25 watts from
Wahoo, Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday November 22 at 0416 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 3 minutes
into so started slightly early circa 0413; VG by local-range pickup at
Warrenton MO SDR, with some storm crashes. Next:

** U S A. 7550-7590, Nov 22 at 0726, via WRMI 7570, TOMBS always bombs
in here aimed right at us, but unusual to be splattering so out to
plus/minus 20 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6000, Nov 22 at 0719, RHC is off by now, but there is a
JBA signal, possibly French? Aoki/NDXC shows these could be on at this
hour: R. Guaíba, Brasil, which has been gone for years; AIR Leh,
Ladakh, India, which is still active on night frequency 4760 but this
is at midday; Echo of Hope, Korea S, and/or NK jamming --- if 6000 be
its jumparound frequency this week; not much of a choice, but Ron
Howard confirmed VOH on 6000 as of Nov 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
