** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Aug 8 around 2300 check, no sign of LRA36 via several SDRs in Paraguay, Uruguay and Brasil; supposed to be running all-night in a 24-hour test as heard before 1800, but not surprisingly not propagating after dark on so high a frequency at winter-max, nor would it likely at summer-max either during solar-min.
Not checked again until 1454 August 9, and there it is into a Brasil SDR, usual stuff of songs and canned IDs at 1454, 1502. Bruce Churchill advocates an Iceland SDR for LRA36, despite the distance an all-agua Atlantic path, but neither of them is getting it at 1516. Of course, no sign of it direct to here either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey Aug 9 at 1350: JBA carriers, u.o.s.: 13530; 13160 S5-S7, 13130, 13070 S7-S9, 13020, 12870 S3-S6, 12820. No there WOOBs checked before 1400.
At 1432: 12190, 11100, 11070, 10870 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** GREECE. 9420, August 9 at 0536, VOG is S9-S7 with Greek Orthodox chanting, harmonies on a Sunday morning, violating Separation of Church and State, unless WRTH dubbing it “public“ instead of “gov“ make a difference; anyhow, always enjoyable music to the secularist. Apparently came on late this Sunday date as Eric Fetters-Walp, near Seattle was not hearing it by 0245. Note that it is always OFF early UT Mondays, our Sunday evenings until I don`t know when (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Aug 8 at 2334, VP talk sounds like a pirate, after some music which seemed to be on 6935. Without a carrier and unfamiliar music, can`t always pinpoint right away. These say it`s Zeke`s (or Zekey`s) Attic: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,70283.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW kHz, Aug 9 at 0604 UT, Enid NDB EI is JBA amid storm noise: had to listen for a couple minutes to detect it between crashes; this local one is always much weaker than the further Okies on 255, 350 and 515 kHz. Less QRN at definite recheck 1349 UT. So remains on air for a second day after revival, and you may assume continuing until I note another absence.
350-MCW kHz, RG at Will RoGers World Airport, OKC, BTW is not to be confused with another RG nearby on 352 kHz, RarotonGa, Cook Islands, as the west coast DXers have to be careful (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 7340, Sunday August 9 at 0544, again no signal from the hypothetical COVID-19 extension of Eye Radio via Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2046 monitoring: confirmed Saturday August 8 at 1948 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, close to the end at 1951.7 UT which means it started at 1922.7; incredibly good S6-S8 signal via KiwiSDR in Warrenton MO — that`s because the two towns are only a few km apart; after getting no signal via the SDR I mostly used before in much further Edinburgh IN. Next item a speech by a ham who is also a medical doctor about ham radio and COVID-19; I think the call was K0MD, but at qrz.com that one appears to be a full-time ham.
Also confirmed NEW time, Saturday August 8 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VG to UTwente; immediately preceded by R. Tirana theme, not the IS and no ID break.
Also confirmed UT Sunday August 9 at 0300 on WRMI 5800, good direct, after R. Tirana theme but with an ID break.
Also confirmed UT Sunday August 9 at 0421 mid-break on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, again via the Warrenton MO SDR of KB0FX, but buried in heavy storm noise, much worse reception than in the daytime; so started late circa 0406. I had been checking since 0315. Blitzortung shows a small but strong storm right over the St Louis area. After 0421 axually better reception faraway here but still noisy. Next:

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Aug 9 at 0015, WTWW-2 webcast with `Theatre Organ [NOT] in the Ozarx` already underway, ending at 0037 so must have started circa 0007 this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 17815, Sunday Aug 9 at 1439, S7-S9 but noisy gospel huxter the OSOB, i.e. WHRI on limited schedule. Its own website not to be believed, as Angel 1 on 21610 at this time: “New Beginnings Church & World Outreach Pastor Ronnie L. Patrick“ and 17815 not starting until 1900, as noted yesterday with dead air in the morning; and no 17815 on Angels 2 or 6. There are NO program listings for Angels 3, 4 or 5; and 6 is shown 24 hours on 7385 except for brief bits on 5920. Don`t you believe that either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
