** CANADA. 6977-USB, Sunday Feb 9 at 2223 while checking the Pirate Band, instead find a CFARS net, mostly JBA inviting checkins from the 600`s. “This is CIW311“, then contacting CIW401 loud and clear, and CIW444. Most CFARS info is classified, login for members only, but
This has the net roster as public info:
200 calls are BC, 300 Alberta then increase to 800’s in the Maritimes.
Also linx to this: http://cfarsoperations.ca/nr2020.html showing CIW311 is Darcy, supposed to be NCS Feb 16, not today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** MEXICO. 6185.69, Feb 9 at 2221, music JBM as XEPPM is still way off-frequency; 6185.771, Feb 10 at 1504, JBM carrier remeasured, at a time when otherwise it is difficult to confirm it`s really Radio Educación on the air far beyond its nominal evening-only schedule. Or was: WRTH 2020 says 1400-0500 and calls it instead Señal Cultura México with 5 kW. Of course during standard time until first Sunday in April it runs until 0600v* UT = local midnite, but starting when?
Current program grid here below several other outlets shows on air only at 17-24 local time = 23-06 UT:

** NORTH AMERICA. 11560, Feb 9 at 2106, anti-Christ pirate, Station YHWH is back, JBA voice of Josiah, tnx to tip from Rick Barton, AZ, on the WOR iog. Already off at 2136 recheck. Sweeps past 7470 following evening did not find him back on his prime frequency, where Rick and I had last logged him January 10. And no other reports since then (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. Re my report of 1319.96, KCLI Clinton, mentioning in ID, KWEY HD-4, Fredrik Douren points out that KWEY does have an FM, 18+ kW on 95.5 — but no info about its HD subchannels. Stephen Luce, Houston TX, also replies:
“Glenn, yes, there are FMs with HD-4 subchannels; we have a few of those here in Houston. Probably the limit as available allocated bandwidth would otherwise be too narrow for decent audio–I have never heard of anyone running an HD-5.“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

BTW, I understand that a similar voice heard on GRITS Radio was Brad Read, the host of GRITS. Someone who heard more of the latest show says it was announced by his wife, Val, that he has a malignant tumor on vocal cords or larynx. Doctors believe that radiation will take care of the problem and he is scheduled to do so shortly and expected to recover fully (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 15825, Feb 10 at 1545, WWCR-1 again boosted to S9+20 by winter HF sporadic E, still squealing; 13845 also way above normal level. DXmap shows MUF of 21-29-56 MHz over MI and adjacent ON, not the right spot for this path which must have a blob at least 16 MHz halfway between here and Nashville. By 1748 recheck, there`s 23 MHz over NW corner of TN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
