** GREECE. 9420, June 3 at 0034, I find Voice of Greece S9+10 in
English, interviewing someone in Zimbabwe, with consecutive
translation and discussion of what he has said; about challenges in
agriculture, climate change, water shortage, paying off debt run up by
previous government; hopes to make a turnaround like Greece. Compares
the two countries geographically. There are some connexions, like
Greek churches and schools in Harare, and plans for the first Greek
university in Africa. The subject is of Greek heritage, his father
still speaking Greek; hopes to visit Greece often with his family when
that becomes possible. End of interview by 0051. One of those surprise
benefits of SW bandscanning, as I never expected to be learning about
Zimbabwe in this way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 17550, June 2 at 2002, no signal at all from R. Kuwait,
Arabic to C&W North America at 2000-2400, as scheduled for A-20 as
well as B-seasons, 250 kW at 350 degrees. If it ever make it, this is
the time, June-July with maximum Arctic transpolar insolation, while
it`s completely foolish to try it in the winters, starting out near
midnight local time! I am about to conclude it continue to be a
phantom service, not even really trying. With a few more sunspots,
it`s possible and have logged it only during previous summers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185, June 3 at 0029, S9+10 open carrier/dead air from
XEPPM: I struggle to detect any JBM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11730, June 2 at 2313, something new here, very poor
sounds Spanish; could it be RRI? ex-11800 usurped by Cuba? No CCI
there any more as I reported immediately RHC moved from 11850 a few
weeks ago. This would be // 11990 RRI, but that signal is JBA, too
weak to match on a second receiver. By 2325 I check them on UTwente
SDR, and yes, both are VG with RRI in stilted Spanish about their
anti-Communist revolution. Must be very recent switch as latest HFCC
dated 29 May still shows RRI on 11800, not 11730 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, June 2 at 2000, KVOH is on today but JBA with
English and Spanish IDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, UT Wed June 3 at 0122, this WBCQ is on but JBA,
presumably with W5KUB`s `Amateur Radio Roundtable` of Tuesday
evenings. Simultaneously, 5085 WTWW-2 is loud but no QSO ham show,
rather Ted hyping ``Global Hot 100`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. By June 3, WWCR has belatedly put up new schedules;
transmitters dated June 1-August 31, and programming as of June 1:
http://www.wwcr.com/program-guides/WWCR_Program_Guide.pdf

9980-7520-5890, as expected from monitoring, WWCR-4 has now been *sold
out* to Brother Scare, 24/7 except for 3 hours weekdays it was
already committed to other gospel huxters. BS had previously occupied
lots of fallow hours on the other transmitters, and those continue on
3215, 4840, 9350, 12160, 13845, 15825 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1270, June 2 at 2014 UT, in full daytime conditions, KRXO
Claremore (Tulsa) OK silly sports talk at 5 kW with heavy SAH of
exactly 1 Hz from another groundwaver: got to be either 50 kW KFLC
from Benbrook (Metroplex) TX with Spanish sports talk; or 5 kW KSCB
Liberal KS talk/sport. All of them direxional to complicate. Need to
DF and/or pull a language (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. June 2 at 2010, the 9-11 MHz area is free of local noise
blobs, but I fear it`s some device intermittently turned on if not
random electrical shorts (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Correxion: initially I called this REE instead of RHC!
Fixed:

11950-11975, June 1 at 2250, RHC splattering out of 11950 transmitter;
sounds a lot like the local noise blobs OG&E has been
working on, so at first feared they remain, but these have matching
modpeaxe to 11950. Not unusual for this frequency to be active before
2300 despite its razón de ser the `Mesa Redonda` separate TV audio
soundtrack hour nominally from 7 pm local (not 00-01 UT, don`t you
believe Aoki/NDXC`s outdated standard time info among others for RHC).
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9980, June 2 at 1331, girl-molester Brother
Scare is here on reactivated WWCR-4 transmitter; this frequency
available 12-24 UT, elsewhen 7520 or 5890, the latter again BSing
circa 0600. Looks like TOM has expanded greatly onto this formerly
mostly-idle transmitter. WWCR still has not updated its transmitter or
program schedules for June. So how about TOM? Ha! Still a year
out-of-date:
https://overcomerministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Overcomer-Ministry-Radio-Log-June-2019.pdf
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. (9690), Now I`ve listened to the archive recording of the
first resumed REE English broadcast June 1:

https://mediavod-lvlt.rtve.es/resources/TE_SEMIF01/mp3/9/2/1591100322329.mp3

Justin Coe & Alison Hughes are together again, but they speak for only
the first 4 minutes; no one at REE has been lost, but some colleagues
in other parts of RNE. In general tribute to COVID-19 victims, they
introduce this beautiful piece of music, Requiem by Francisco
Guerrero, not familiar to me, but even in extended podcast it`s
truncated, cut off abruptly at 32:42. And it looks like they are back
to their old format for ``English``, mostly filled with music rather
than much if anything about current events in Spain or anywhere (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, June 2 at 1615, WLCR via WBCQ-6 is on in English, but
poor signal, this hour registered as only 250 kW at 300 degrees to
western and central Canada --- if on 15105! AFAIK, WBCQ-6 SuperStation
has never attained any frequency but 9330, despite
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A20&broadc=BCQ'
for 6195, 13590, 15105, 12080, at various times besides 9330.

AW has now twitted about 9330 resuming:
``Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ 22m[inutes ago at 1505 UT June 2]
The BIG one back on the air. Replaced the screen bypass capacitor
(again). Hopefully it will hold. Tune 9330khz for WLC programming.
Today at 3pm tune in 7490khz for good tunes and commentary. 3265khz
evenings at 9pm for more. All for you on the BCQ. A&A in front of the
PA [caption].``

He still doesn`t say *what* programming is on 3265, inaudible in OK,
but here`s a report to the WOR iog:

``WBCQ, Monticello, Maine, 3265, May 28, 0455, EE with re-broadcast of
WHVW, 950 AM, Hyde Park, New York programming with continuous eclectic
mix of older jazz/big band tunes. ID at 0412 "950 On Your Radio,
WHVW", more music, this time older R&B, then off at 0413 in mid-song.
No WBCQ ID heard; 34233 (JRC NRD 535D; antenna 28m longwire with 9:1
Unun) (Robert Butterfield, Columbia, MD, USA)``

WHVW, 500/57 watts U1, is the station of Pirate Joe = J. P. Ferraro,
AW`s longtime cohort, not the only case such programming has filled
time on WBCQs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1520, June 2 at 0605 UT, KOKC OKC with equal level QRM, soon
recognized as the KYND Cypress TX barker-for-business loop, despite
being a 25 kW DAYTIMER. This has been going on for over a year, at
least sporadically. Where`s the FCC? KOKC must not even care to
complain, as it does not care either to resume its licensed full power
of 50 kW. Who cares about ``clear channel 1520``, with a translator on
95.3?

1540-, same time, a LAH here no doubt the off-frequency Houston-market
neighbor KGBC Galveston TX; ditto, FCC.

1560, not hearing Vietnamese from usually dominant KGOW Bellaire TX;
something changed there? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1370, June 2 at 0559 UT, I strain to make out a station
slightly atop the graveyard-like jumble, and can almost imagine an ID
as KGNO, and mention of FM 103.something? That Dodge City KS station
cannot be heard on 5 kW ND day power as it used to be, at least at
SR/SS, but night power, if any, probably running 24h is 230 watts. NRC
AM Log does not show any FM for it, nor does own token website:
https://www.swksradio.com/kgno-1370-am/
The Log does show a possible 1370 with FM 103.5, KAWL York NE with 176
ND watts night on 1370 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. The local noise blobs are still rampant, checked June 2
at 0536-, typically ~20 kHz wide, and now I see a pattern, at
intervals of ~360 kHz apart: starting with 9850-9870 at S7-S8; then:
9490-9510, 9130-9150, 8770-8790, 8410-8430, 8055-8070, 7697-7717,
7340-7355, circa 6993 weak.

At 1328 June 2, I find some higher ones at different intervals:
11215-11300, 10905-10945, 10690-10720, 10560-10580, 10200-10225,
9830-9855. At 1418, even higher, 11630-11655 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1717 UT June 2

** CUBA. 11950-11975, June 1 at 2250, REE splattering out of 11950
transmitter; sounds a lot like the local noise blobs OG&E has been
working on, so at first feared they remain, but these have matching
modpeaxe to 11950. Not unusual for this frequency to be active before
2300 despite its razón de ser the `Mesa Redonda` separate TV audio
soundtrack hour nominally from 7 pm local (not 00-01 UT, don`t you
believe Aoki/NDXC`s outdated standard time info among others for RHC).
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 7380, June 1 at 0053, S9+25 signal with DSB tone close to
1000 Hz, almost overcoming 7375 Romania; what? 0101 YL in unID
language, music with very minor harmonies; 0109 now OM in S Asian
language. It`s the AIR Sindhi service at 01-02, which Jose Jacob said
resumed May 9. Sindhis are in both northern India, and Pakistan. But
this is an ``external`` service; HFCC registered as 0045-0200, 400
[sic] kW at 300 degrees from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925, June 2 at 0043, VP signal, mushy music
chanting & yelling, on USB & LSB, but unstable carrier seems reduced.
Several logs here say it`s Yeah Man Radio, but no complaints about the
audio, rather ``sounding great here``:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,67858.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, June 1 at 2130, accurate timesignal and ID as REE, so
back in business as of today, after default to domestic RNE relay
fillers. YL`s program, didn`t catch title, said it was the first one
in three months. In Spanish. Unfortunately I was distracted after
2200, but by 2245 recheck REE is in French on 9690 VG, 11940 good,
11670 VP, and 12030 missing --- so English probably also resumed at
2200-2230 (M/W/F). That`s soon confirmed as I check the WOR iog: Alan
Roe, Teddington UK, said at 2121:

``The REE programme guide on their website at
https://www.rtve.es/radio/radio-exterior/programacion/
has today (1 June) changed to show programming in English from 1 June
(at 2200, French at 2230 and Portuguese at 2300 UT). If confirmed
shortly, then that will be a welcome return to shortwave of these
language services following the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Scheduled frequencies are 9690, 11670, 11940 and 12030 kHz (12030 not
currently audible here (2115 UT - may be off air at present).``

And he follows up at 2207: ``REE English language service confirmed
back on-air at 2200 on 1 June on 9690, 11670 & 11940 kHz, with a short
introduction by Justin Coe and Alison Hughes remembering lost
colleagues at REE and playing Requiem music.``

Harold Frodge, MI, adds at 2210: 11940 VGood at 2200, 11670 fair &
only a tone on 12030. 9690 best. At 2205 running Requiem by Francisco
Guererro``

I want to hear that. REE`s huge podcast archive has not yet added the
latest #2162, since 14 March, tnx to direct link in the WOR Hitlist:

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue June 2 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, poor S7-S9, but good via UTwente altho with its
local click/buzz QRM problem. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [off air last week]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, June 2 at 0046, WLCR via WBCQ-6, June 2 at 0046 is
back on in Brazuguese, only S8 to S9+10 offbeam here. Guess they
rerefixed the ring around the tube socket thingie, but for how long?
Was not on earlier June 1. As of 0325 UT June 2, no AW twits about
this yet, since the last one May 31 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.98 approx., UT Tue June 2 at 0051, the unique Spanish
accent of Bill Tilford during FTIOM on WBCQ-1; with BFO can tell the
carrier is unstable. Good signal level by this hour. Nothing on 6160v
or 5130 now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7520, June 2 at 0050, Brother Scare is here now at S9+50 via
WWCR-4. Wacko stuff about HAARP causing earthquaxe. On the transmitter
sked expiring May 31, the only one yet visible, 7520 was available
00-02 UT but preferable totally blank programming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST

My latest Hitlist update.
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) Belgium - R Onda: Added links to this station
2) Madagascar - Madagascar World Voice: Added links for MWV
3) USA - KNLS: Updated home and freq links to point to World Christian
Broadcasting web site
4) Vatican - R Vaticana: Updated links to frequencies (thanks to Mike
Terry in WOR iog)

Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be late
June. Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, May 31)

** BRAZIL.. 9666.650V, June 1 at 0545, JBA carrier from presumed RVM
always off-frequency and varying considerably. Last night was stronger
with music but did not get a precise fix on it, I think on the minus
side of 9666. Also seems to be the only ZY left on 31m, at least
overnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13160, June 1 at 1359, S5-S7, pop song to ToH timesignal and
off 1400*; another listed CNR1 jammer and SOH frequency, but no sign
of the victim. No others in the area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, June 1 at 0556, RHC again absent from this English
frequency after 0500, and suspect also absent for Spanish before 0500.
Remainders: 6145 S9+20 and suptorted; 6100 S9+40 suptorted; 6000 S9+20
and distorted during music show. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Bob Biermann replies to my 89.1 Oasis Network log: ``Non
coms can use any means to feed a non commercial translator. You can
even rebroadcast a station from thousands of miles away.`` Which is
what 88.3 had been doing; well, hundreds (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9745V, June 1 at 0550, poor in African language,
unstable frequency. Listed as BBC Hausa via AUSTRIA; but maybe
substitute site as Ivo reported some Moosbrunns missing. Unlikely
Bahrain listed 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9455, UT Mon June 1 at 0100, WRMI with Radio Emma Toc,
as scheduled now for a few weeks but failed to appear; so first time
I`ve heard it. This is the second monthly broadcast. Only a few
minutes at first about the 2MT story, to be continued, etc., etc.

0116 excerpt from Wavescan; 0123 about numbers stations such as
Lincolnshire Poacher. Several times refers to own website for linx to
more about segments --- but there aren`t any!
https://www.emmatoc.org/worldservice

At least it explain the strange name, which was certainly a poor
choice for fonetix:

``Footnote: Why 'Emma Toc' ...? The wireless station was required to
read out their allocated callsign '2MT' at regular intervals, & in
1922 the British Army phonetic alphabet of the time was used. 'M' was
'Emma' & 'T' was 'Toc', so '2MT' became 'Two Emma Toc'. The amusing &
flippant manner in which Captain Peter Eckersley read out the phonetic
version of '2MT' resulted in the station being affectionately known as
'Two Emma Toc'!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring via Rochester NY KiwiSDR:
confirmed UT Monday June 1 at 0130 & 0230 on WRMI 7780, good; 0300.5
on Area 51 via WBCQ 5130, good; 0330 on WRMI 9955, not audible there,
but in Colombia atop jamming except during some deep fades. Also
confirmed on WRN webcast at 0130.

Also confirmed Monday June 1 from 1800:45 or so on IRRS via ???? 7290,
monitored on UTwente SDR, VG but usual AACI splatter from 7280/7300?
However, off to a rough start: tune-in 1755 only signal is VG Qur`an
from Iran, 1756 VIRI Italian opening as ``Radio Italia`` at 1750-1820
on 5925, where it is supposed to be. Heavy collision once IRRS carrier
on *1758, making rippling SAH; 1759 bits of music on and off, 1800
IRRS sign-on with Milano PO Box and phone number only; FSN Washington
headlines; still clashing as WOR opens, but Iran cut off about
1801:30* and we are in clear past 1829, only the low ``RTTY``
undercurrent also audible. Something`s always SNAFU at Sirjan. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [off air last week]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 7490.0, May 31 at 2307, WBCQ closer to nominal than usual,
S9+25 fading to S7, during Harry Shearer`s `Le Show` --- I would like
to hear this every week but the scheduling is very inconvenient, up
against 60 Minutes. Modulation is unusually muffled. Topic is how
Amazon sends out promotion to TV stations disguised as ``news``,
including to OK`s own KOCO. All other `BCQ frequencies are OFF, or
inaudible, including the SS on 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5985, June 1 at 0558, Qur`an --- what`s this, new frequency
for Algeria via France? Had just heard that on 6125 and 7595 but now
they are off. Soon to WRMI canned ID and off 0600*. O yeah, WRMI runs
5985 this late only on UT Mondays with Yeshua show, who probably would
not be qool with Qur`an from the World Music fill reel. This WRMI-2 is
the only one on the odd azimuth of 222 degrees to Central America,
primarily for NHK relay at 0400-0430, also various gospel huxters or
DX programs at 0330-0400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, June 1 at 0600, WWCR-4 is on not only with dead air
but TOM modulation, // 3215 while 4840 has something else altho both
supposed to be Overcomer ``Ministy`` or ``Ministries``, while correct
word is ``Ministry``. WWCR website only shows transmitter sked
expiring May 31, while June 1 is a normal changeover date, so maybe
now 5890 intentionally on. Anyway the transmitter skeds covering 24
hours each are only what`s *available*, (5890 at 02-12), not axual
usage. For that we need to see the new June pdf program skeds; while
May still shows nothing on 5890 except 02-04 UT Tue-Sat non-TOM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, June 1 at 1442 at first no signal from KVOH but then
a JBA carrier; 1904 recheck, definitely on to S9+20 but
undermodulated, and in English! not Spanish, about God and COVID-19.
May I suggest that the Omnipotent one could eliminate it, poof! if
enough believers beg It to (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Local scratchy noise blob survey May 31 after 2300,
approx. ranges, peaking not necessarily right in their middles:
6878-7000, 7340-7365, 7680-7730, [8-9 not checked], 9125-9155,
9480-9530, 9830-9885, 10190-10240; the top one weak and none audible
higher.

Next check at 0543 June 1, still there around approx. 7350, 7705,
9500, 9855. OG&E is searching them out Monday morning/noon June 1. No
confirmation yet that he found the source, but seem to be gone by
1900, leaving only general buzz noise level across the bands (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 89.1-WBFM, May 30 at 2014 UT, 205-watt H&V Enid
translator K206CA surprising with gospel song in Spanish, 2017 back to
English. Noticed as I am bandscanning futilely for sporadic E DX. This
is the Oasis Network, primary KNYD 90.5 Tulsa market, 80/80 kW Broken
Arrow. But it can`t be an off-air pickup due to our semi-local on
90.5, KBVV Goltry. Oasis is also on 88.1, 0/50 kW KMSI Moore, more
audible here vs KWOU Woodward. There is not a word of Spanish on the
Oasis website, unless they be the names of founder David Ingles,
depending on how he pronounce them, but his music is in English (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3-WBFM, May 30 at 2015 UT, 250-watt Enid translator
K202BY, is spreading out between 87.7 and 88.9 on the DX-398 as I
attempt to check ``open`` frequencies for sporadic E DX. WTFDA FM
database still has this as a Family Radio satellator of KEBR 88.1 in
California! Despite my first report Feb 1 of transfer on the air to
KJIL 99.1 Copeland KS, as in ``Jesus Is Love``. Normally it only ruins
adjacents 88.1 and 88.5 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 9830, May 31 at 0634, African language under
NSS RTTY: it`s DW in Hausa relay at 0630-0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 30 at 2203, no signal from VOT English to us,
just NSS RTTY. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Local noise
blob has fortuitously drifted upward so that only its edge barely
bother 9830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 475.09-CW kHz, May 31 at 0636 UT, Dave Frantz has resumed
his very slow Morse code beacon at WWRB Manchester TN, ``WA4SZE COM
WA4SZE/BEACON``. I tune past here almost every night, and last time
heard was December 10, 2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18150-USB, May 30 at 2200, KJ4BJ, ham in Tennessee in
contact with 9Z4AH in Trinidad, unheard. QRZ.com shows antennas and
``KJ4BJ USA flag USA, ROBERT J JORDAN, DAYTON, TN 37321 USA`` at
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/kj4bz
Sporadic E opening; can`t compare to 15825 WWCR Nashville, which has
just gone off, but 13845 is very poor. Dayton is 110 miles ESE of
Nashville, roughly between Chattanooga and Knoxville; and site of the
infamous ``monkey trial``.

18160-USB, May 30 at 2207, KJ4BJ has QSYed to here, contacting JBA
HP9SAM in Panamá; only activity on the band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28433-USB, May 31 at 1824, good steady ham signal discussing
tubes etc. with unheard contact, no calls, overs or beeps, but finally
closing at 1833 as ``W6SCC, 10-3``. So sporadic E from California? No:
``W6SCC USA Guy B Coleman, Tucson, AZ 85745 USA``. Mentioned hearing
close Colorado on 10m, mode Es? Certainly. Now there is a 70+ MHz MUF
over New Mexico or so. Seemed the OSOB until:

28380-USB, May 31 at 1834, even stronger unID ham, S9+20 discussing
10-10 net`s declining membership (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: still no confirmation from
Ivo or anyone of Saturday 1300 on 15770 WRMI; but at least this has
finally been entered on the WRMI skedgrid.

Confirmed UT Sunday May 31 at 0300 on WRMI 5800, VG S9+10/20.

Next nominal airing at 0315 UT Sun on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, much
delayed due to open-ended durations of various preceding hamshows:
good signal at Indiana SDR, first check at 0302, TWIAR, and then
Houston AMSAT; 0402 ARRL news; but WOR in progress at 0427 about 16
minutes into so must have started circa 0411. Next:

0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51 or 6160v to WSW
0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955 [jammed] to SSE
0900 UT Monday Unique Radio NSW 3210-USB
1800vUT Monday IRRS 7290 whence? to WNW 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun May 31 at 0017, WTWW-2 with `Theatre Organ
[NOT] In The Ozarx`, in progress, S9+30/40! but suppressed/distorted =
suptorted modulation. Probably would be in good clear $ tereo on
webcast, but not convenient to access. Last week this show never
appeared during 2-hour window (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, May 31 at 0008, VOV English relay is S9+10 but
just barely modulated; WHRI transmitter ailing? Or no one turning up
the volume (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3, May 31 at 0619 UT, single-letter beacon A is JBA
in noise level, every dekasecond. Altho a reliable source has assured
us it is not heard as a local signal in Quartzsite AZ, I see in
classaxe.com it is still placed in Quartzite [sic] with a period of
10.14 seconds, last logged by anyone there 2020-08-05. QZ is about 17
miles from the CA border on I-10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4875-USB, May 31 at 0021, two tactical calls also
exchanging uteblaap traffic, fonetikaly: 40W and ZPM; seems like there
has been a MARS net here? No QRM from the 4875 ZY, too early? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1955 UT May 31
