** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sat Sept 26 at 1526, LRA36 is underway with chat mostly by two YLs, S6-S8 at Brasil SDR, mentioning LRA-4 in Santa Fe – I thought they said, but that`s in Salta on 690. In WRTH you have to hunt thru the entire MW frequency list since the LRAs are mixed in with the non-governmentals. Fortunately this one is in lowband. Anyhow, altho Antarctica occasionally mentioned, it`s all about Argentina instead. Abruptly interrupted by local neighborhood power failure at 1542 until 1707. By 1735 they are still gabbing, 1803 a song. 1902 the Brazilians are busy, a trace of music at Buenos Aires and Santiago. Latest info about this broadcast per Manuel Mendez was 15-20 in Spanish, preceded and followed by a semihour in German, no English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Sept 26 at 0619, no signal from RTM at a time it is normally heard; could be due to K index of 5 as WWV reported:

“Solar-terrestrial indices for 25 September follow. Solar flux 73 and estimated planetary A-index 20. The estimated planetary K-index at 0600 UTC on 26 September was 5. Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor. Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.“

6005, BBC Ascension, however is still audible weakly as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: Oversight of the United States Agency for Global Media and U.S. International Broadcasting Efforts

Glenn: Here is a link to the hearing: https://youtu.be/Xi7BsQa8NaU (via Charles Harlich)

We asked for it – O, o, it`s 3 hours and 9 minutes. Now even the HOROTUS is using YouTube. Cue in 4:40 when Chairman Engel explains what is going on, next 5 minutes, how Pack weaseled out of his commitment to testify … (Glenn) viz.:

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2053 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday Sept 26 at 0130 on WRMI 7780 only, S9/+15 at Maine SDR, noisy S8-S9 at UTwente. Follows 0129.5 ID by Ian McFarland, and then Bob Zanotti tries to too, but is chopped off after only his name. I think this happens every week to this broadcast, programmed as such into automation; not my doing! 0140 check here, 7780 is S9+10 but undermodulated.

ZZZ, I miss checking the nexts, Sat 1130 on WRMI 9955, 1300 on 15770; did anyone hear them? Next:

Thanks this week for financial support from Gerald T Pollard, Raleigh NC, for a generous quarterly seasonal check on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

Financial support may alternatively be sent via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com – not necessarily US funds as PP will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5072.0 & 5098.0 approx., Sept 26 at 0147, the very weak spur carrier parasites to 5085 WTWW-2 are back after having been inaudible the last time I checked, different transmitter? While 5085 is now S9+30/40. Still on and there at 0623 when I measure them exactly: 5071.990 and 5098.013 which imply the fundamental be at 5085.0015 or so but not measured directly. The spurs used to be close to 12.9 kHz plus and minus rather than 13.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Sept 26 at 0627, WWCR-3 not in dead air for a change, as it had been the last few nights after 0600; but unID gospel huxter other than TOMBS who is still on 3215 & 5890. Last few days WWCR`s pdf program guide has refused to load below WWCR-1. Now I get the xls version which shows at 0600 on Saturday it`s supposed to be `Worldwide Country Radio`. Despite this note on the homepage: “ALL WWCR streams and transmitters are back on schedule! We appreciate our patient and loyal listeners.“ Really? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, Sat Sept 26 at 1500, JJBBA carrier from KVOH when `Wavescan` is supposed to be getting its first airing of the week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Big tropo opening east of here across Arkansas per maps tho as usual we are on the edge. Enough to knock out some OKC DTV signals by DX QRM, and show a few Bad signals on open channels but none decoding, Sept 26 circa 1515 UT. Local power failure at 1542 so I switch to portable FM on the DX-398. Tulsans are in solid.

99.1 at 1619, ad for Honda of Russellville, i.e.. Arkansas, and more ads for Fort Smith, “KMAG 99.1, number one for New Country“, i.e. Fort Smith, still atop Mount MAGazine? — hey that would be a great place to exile Drumpf. 600 meters HAAT which isn`t that much but more than most in these lowlands.

102.1, Sept 26 at 1623, “102-1, The Bull, #1 FM New Country,“ Wichita. Really, KZSN, 100/100 kW from Hutchinson KS. Right adjacent,
101.9 KTST OKC, “The Twister“ also brands itself “#1 New Country“. Must be a thing.

90.1, Sept 26 at 1627 UT, both KUCO OK and KHCC KS are overcome by “Ministry 8 days of hope“ — that matches the AFR schedule, so KBNV Fayetteville AR, 7.1/16.0 H/V kW.

92.1, Sept 26 at 1629, also earlier, stupid sports talk, which fits for another Fayetteville AR, KQSM-FM, 7.6/7.6 kW. Not bad overcoming the Okies such as KTBT Broken Arrow in the way, not the source of some C&W CCI (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 26 at 0628: 621, 684, 711, 747, 837, 936, 1188. 1188 is interesting, normally with nothing. Per WRTH nothing but superpowers in Hungary and Iran; and Down Under, no more than 2 kW from Australia. No TP carrier from 846, however. Otherwise correlate with lower latitude NW Africa and Spain only, with K index of 5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12302-USB, Sept 26 at 1503 yet another colloquial Spanish 2-way, with “engine noise“. These contacts always know each other and may use nicknames, but never any proper IDs; informal arrangements? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
