** CUBA [and non]. 7345, July 30 at 2350, no signal from R. Martí, DRM or AM. Had been running DRM daytime starting at 1700 until 0200, but UT July 28 had switched to AM. Now gone but pulse jamming remains. No other RM AM signals on 7 MHz band yet nor 6030 to start at 0000 but 5980 already running, tough luck for R. Chaski, Perú (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 9610-USB, July 31 at 0038, hard rock at S7-S8 into Missouri SDR, tnx to hot tip from Vance-MI in latest Free Radio Weekly just arrived that after emitting on 9530 and 9520 as heard since 2320 by Robins & Zichi, Mix Radio International had switched to 9610. It`s quite in the clear there; hard rock with breaks for canned IDs and/or address at 0048, 0051, 0136, 0148, 0154, still past 0200 when I am mainly listening to Cool AM Radio on 5800 via WRMI; and MRI still going on 9610-USB at 0250, 0317, 0341 chex.
Had been on lower 9 MHz channels as early as 1806 July 30, and announced frequency changes here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,84476.0.html
BTW, earlier around 2350 July 30 check of 6.9-MHz pirate band found no activity; quite a bit in HFU an hour later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, July 29 at 0617, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR. This happens frequently, sloppyrator asleep, literally? at the switch. Meanwhile, TOMBS continues on 3215 & 5890, the latter lowly modulated compared to 5935 PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat July 31 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW` starting William Tell Overture. Tomorrow is the 175th anniversary of founding of Monticello, so A&A are participating in 10 am parade. Lauds how well the little town has treated WBCQ; population down to less than 1,000 [2,010 census or Rand McNally estimate was only 400!]. Jason will be broadcasting the parade on WBCQ`s AM & FM stations on 780, 94.7 & 98.3 but probably not SW on short notice.
A&A visit the scenic Maine coast on a day or two off, and found that lunch for two now costs $93 at their favorite restaurant; good food, but ?!?! Lamenting inflation, minimum wage increases, etc. That annoying caller Tim interrupts again this week at 0017, so I zone out, but he`s pushing gold and silver when I zone back in.
0029 Allan laments that FCC is not taking any axion on his application to buy WHRI; against AW`s dedication to religious and Free Speech broadcasting? Not as pointed or detailed as his memo I quote verbatim on WOR this week. 0043 finally datestamp as 30 July YOOL 2021, and quadri-casting on 7490, 6160, 4790 and 3265. Since 3265 has not been heard lately, I quickcheck one of the Rochester NY remotes where it is indeed JBA; the Kiwi in Maine run by the same ham is unavailable.
0050 Free Radio Weekly has just arrived, so he reads a few items, just frequencies, station names and some content, no times or credits; he mentions Mix Radio International but overlooks hot-off-the-press news that it just moved to 9610-USB, where I am also hearing it, see NORTH AMERICA. Larry Will just sent a report on WBCQ frequencies now.
0056 update on the SuperStition; blew up about 3 weeks ago. Thalès in France is fast-tracking a replacement PA tube and will air-freight it within weeks rather than months. Hard to get tower crews in to work on the antenna due to Covi-nation. Says recent events have trimmed 2-3 years off his lifespan, but Angela is young and beautiful as ever; she jokes that his distress has affected her too. 0100 he reiterates that as a Man Of Science, he understands how vaccines work and urges them. Angela still thinks vax result from Chinese bio-weapon and should not be trusted. Prayer and again runs just past 0101+ into Hal Turner time. Here is John Carver`s version:
“Tonight’s show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan and Angela in the studio. The usual banter between Allan and Angela. Allan announced that tomorrow is the one hundred and seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of Monticello. Said that they would all be riding in the parade. He also mentioned that Angela was related to several people in Monticello. Allan then complains about spending ninety-three bucks for lunch while touring coastal Maine with Angela. Angela wonders whether the new minimum wage accounts for the huge increase in prices.
Phone call from Tim at 0017 and things get a bit confusing with all the stuff that Tim is saying. Then the talk turns to finance, interest rates, credit cards, debit cards, people today not understanding how business really works. Then Allan jumps to talking about the FCC and states that he can’t understand why there hasn’t been a decision made yet on the purchase of WHRI. Phone call at 0039 with a reception report and some comments about a caller a couple weeks ago. Another phone call at 0049. Reading of the new edition of Free Radio Weekly at 0050. Sorry but I missed the last five minutes of the program and can only assume that things went well. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
