At 2112 I reply: “Or not! Still at 2112 it`s Main Street Church of Christ, ignorant self-righteous gospel huxter. Running late? I`m listening via website live stream, not tried 9265 yet. Sked futurely dated Feb 7 shows:
ET / UT – – Friday(ET) – –
03:00P / Fri-2000…Worship At home
04:00P / Fri-2100…Unique Radio
05:30P / Fri-2230…Words of Life – Back to the Bible
So maybe Uniq does not start until next week? Glenn“ — but then:
“Guess what: when I do tune 9265V direct at 2114 something totally different with Oz accent. So their stream is not live at all // 9265. That`ll teach me. Glenn“
Further monitoring: 9265V means the frequency is always wobbling slightly, unstable transmitter; also had some clix about once a second, not sure if a transmission defect or QRM; audible up to 9280 but not on the minus side. At 2114 had a discussion about the web. There was not a break circa 2130 but same program continued. 2137 started playing songs; 2200 WINB ID by Tim, and on to Radio Tatras International, RTI, from Slovakia, informal discussion but hard to follow with SW reception declining. At this time there is competition from `Behaviour Night` on weaker 7490.2 and stronger `VORW` on 9955, but both of them do webcast. Aussie Tim later replies that the WINB webcast was supposed to accompany 9265V (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 11820, Feb 6 at 0307, JBA carrier presumed 2 x 5910 CRI relay, but nowhere the bigsig it recently achieved. Compared to much stronger active RHC fundamentals 11670 and JBM 11850. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 4980, Feb 6 at 0040, JBA carrier, but not WRMI which has abandoned it; since there are equally JBA carriers from the Urumqi Four on 5060, 4850 and 4500, i.e. Xinjiang PBS in the morning, land of Chicom genocide against the Uyghurs. I was going to link to some more Uyghur music, but instead, about it being suppressed:
““Eating Hanness”: Uyghur Musical Tradition in a Time of Re-education
— Amy Anderson and Darren Byler, p. 17-26
In February 2019, two major musical performances by residents of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region were widely circulated on Chinese social media. These two performances, one a Mekit County Harvest Gala and the other a performance by a Uyghur school teacher from Qumul, featured Uyghurs dressed in Han cultural costumes performing Beijing Opera.
Over the past five years, since the “People’s War on Terror” started, the space for Uyghur traditional song and dance performance has deeply diminished. Simultaneously, the space for Uyghurs performing Hanness through Chinese traditional opera and Red songs has dramatically increased.
Drawing on open source Uyghur and Chinese-language media, ethnographic fieldwork, and interviews with Uyghurs in diaspora, this article analyses the changing role of music in Uyghur religious and ritual life by tracing the way state cultural ministries have dramatically increased their attempts to separate Uyghur music from its Sufi Islamic origins in order to produce a non-threatening “permitted difference” (Schein 2000).
Since 2016, the re-education campaign of the Chinese government on Uyghur society has intensified this disconnection by promoting an erasure of even the state-curated “difference” of happy, exoticized Uyghurs on stage. Han traditional music is now replacing Uyghur traditional music, which shows an intensification of symbolic violence toward Uyghur traditional knowledge and aesthetics.
In a time of Uyghur re-education, musical performance on stage has become a space for political rituals of loyalty to a Han nationalist vision of the Chinese state.

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: I feel a slight tremor at 1749 UT February 5, so check USGS immediately. Within a couple minutes it registers: magnitude 4.1, 1748:43, 4 km NNW of Lucien OK, 5.0 km deep but later modified, and accompanied by one earlier and one later from same tiny town area about 35 km ESE of Enid, neither of which I felt: magnitude 2.6, 1729:35, Oklahoma, 5.0 km deep magnitude 4.2, 1748:43, 5 km WNW of Lucien OK, 6.7 km deep ***** magnitude 2.6, 1759:13, 5 km WNW of Lucien OK, 5.0 km deep Lucien is probably closer to where Richard N Allen, MW DXer lives outside of Perry; how were those for him?

** U S A. 5085, Feb 6 at 0242, WTWW-2 with rock music, distorted and very strong S9+40/30 frequency is wobbling unstably. I measure the parasitic JBA spurs one can`t help but notice in 1-kHz step bandscanning: 5097.991 and 5072.010, surely matching within margin of error and/or fundamental could be very slightly high, not measured directly. O yeah? Why doesn`t anyone else report them? At 0247 there are some modulation breaks within the music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
