** CANADA [non]. 7488.871, July 2 at 0200, “Canada D`Eh“ special by Uncle Bill and Fred Waterer on WBCQ, a fun show of comedy and tunes; I listen first on the `7490` webcast but it craps out at 0217 so I hasten to Area 51 webcast, but it`s some other music! The special was supposed to be on both 7490 & 6160. Then I bring up the Maryland SDR to find that 6160 is not even on the air, but it`s getting 7490. A few minutes later I can go back to the 7490 webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
The 7490 webcast crapped out again about 0253, but I still had the NA5B remote running. 73, Glenn PS: I also plugged it a few minutes before on the first WOR broadcast at 0130“

I was listening in Indiana with a small Kaito away from Internet and have no idea what went wrong with 6160. It was supposed to be a simulcast, yes. Appreciate the plug, will be getting to eQSLs in a few hours. Glad you enjoyed, and thanks for everything.
Glenn, we don’t have serial numbers for these, but you are the first one. Enjoy. 73,“ https://www.w4uvh.net/HAUSERCANADADEHEQSL.pdf or #127 via: http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html
“Thanks for listening, Glenn — After almost 43 years in the hobby it’s odd but fun to be on the Sending side of QSLs rather than the Receiving side. Cheers, Fred Waterer

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [and non]. No activity on “Hurricane Watch Net“ frequencies of 14325-USB and 7268-LSB, July 6 at 0126 and earlier. BTW, there is a hurricane across Cuba toward Florida (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, July 6 at 0110, JBA pirate music, presumed usual Nowhere Radio on this exact frequency. As here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,83629.0.html
6950-USB, July 6 at 0111, pirate music S6 vs storm crashes peaking S9. Many reports here as Radio Genix as early as 2028 UT July 5: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,83620.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Nearby NDB check July 6 at 0130 UT: confirmed ON: 515 PN Ponca City, 350 RG OKC, 341 EI Enid, 332 IC Wichita KS. I am getting these much better S/N on N/S shortwire than on E/W Wellbrook which is supposed to be lower-noise. Still off: 255 SW Stillwater (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 5 at 2200, REE intro by Justin Coe does not mention a mailbag segment coming up, but there was one reported 3 weeks ago; irregular? VG into Maryland SDR. BTW, Alison Hughes was said to have taken early retirement (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 395-MCW kHz, July 6 at 0128 UT, maybe my line noise is abating a bit altho I have not heard from OG&E; two 25-watt Kansas NDBs colliding, but with slightly different periods almost alternating the NW. Classaxe.com shows respective periods are 6.27 and 7.41 seconds.
Harvs is a strange name, and not even in my large scale Rand McNally atlas, but distancefromto.net locates it not near Newton at all, but NW of Lyons and ENE of Great Bend. From there it is 174 miles to Ulysses in the SW corner (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
** U S A. 28206.3-CW, July 6 at 0054 UT, VVV DE KM4NBB/B. Some more CW followed I did not copy, and I thought it was KM4NB/B, missing a B, and about 28206.1, but listed as such by WJ5O at qsl.net:
“28.2063 KM4NBB C MURRARYVILLE [sic], GEORGIA # 5W, VERTICAL New 19 September 2020“ – and his page at QRZ.com says:
“KM4NBB USA flag USA, William E Stephens, Murrayville, GA 30564 USA 10 Meter Beacon 28.206300 MHZ Grid Square: EM84BM – If you hear this beacon, please email QSL to the address below Email: email@example.com Thank you“
There was also some Spanish phone USB QRM this low in the 10m band.
More strikeouts seeking sporadic E FM DX 88+ MHz, but MUF at least up to 28+. Another relogged many times:
28281.2-CW, July 6 at 0057 UT, DE W8EH, i.e.:
“28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL“

** U S A. 9395, July 5 at 0205 tune-in to WRMI for Texas R SW 4th of July special – patriotic speech by YL in progress, not music yet; illegible notes; 0213 Ray Charles: America the Beautiful; 0222 QSL offer in OM voice and intro next tune, Springsteen: Born in the USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 9330, July 6 at 0124 still no signal from 500 kW WLCR via WBCQ, and I guess there will not be for a while. Update on this via Mike Terry: “[WOR] WBCQ “Big Tube” a write-off — Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ · 4h Trials and tribulations. Searching for a TH576 tube, or equivalent, to get the mighty 9330 back on the air. Classic WBCQ still going strong on 7490/6160/3265 khz. The free speech goes on!! The big tube went to air while on the air. All burnt up and not rebuildable. Sad $200k loss. (Twitter 5 July 2021)“
Well, isn`t the thing insured or under warranty? Anyhow, out of pocket of the wacko Egyptian billionaire (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 1360, UT Mon July 5 at 0022, I`m tuned to the KiwiSDR in Philadelphia for the publicized 4th of July special DX test from WNJC, Washington Twp – of several in NJ, the one near Camden and hence Philly. I`m hearing a tone at S5-S6; 0023 singing jingle ID “WNJC 13-60“; Star-Spangled Banner in Jimi Hendrix style, but not quite? Mixing in a few notes of Taps; then VVV VVV VVV DE WNJC in Morse code – not CW but tones on AM carrier. WNJC calls repeated over and over, I lost count after eleven, maybe for a minute; 0028.5 sweep tones upward.
I had no chance of getting it direct, but wanted to hear and confirm what was going out. Despite proximity, hardly a local-quality signal, altho it was dominant on frequency. Night and day coverage maps at radio-locator.com imply the low-power night pattern axually has a better lobe into Phila. than the higher-power day pattern. Strangely enough, 24 hours later, I have seen zero reports of this on the NRC or IRCA lists; maybe I should tell them that at least I for one heard it, albeit remotely (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5085, July 6 at 0117, WTWW-2 with Ted saying he`s about to play a 4th of July special of patriotic American music, recorded last night, which failed to air “because a cow stepped on a cable“. Very distorted modulation tho and I shan`t listen. The carrier is also jittering slightly, checked with BFO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 7505, July 6 at 0122, WRNO is AWOL again. Usually was quite strong lately when active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5179-USB, July 6 at 0119, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, one quite strong S7-S9 with “engine noise“, mentioning quantities of something measured in “kilos“; which is nonsensical; kilowatts, kilojoules, kilogallons, kilograms, kilomiles?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 24000-27000 kHz, July 6 at 0104-0107, complete bandscan for anything interesting as sporadic E is bouncing in CB 27+ MHz and some 28+ MHz beacons. Still no broadcast auxiliaries, but some 2-way:
26315.1-AM, July 6 at 0104, contact maybe offset on 26314.7-AM.
26565.3-AM, July 6 at 0105, very strong signal just as it goes off
26583.4-AM, July 6 at 0106, Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
