** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7780 // 5800, UT Sat Aug 28 at 0200, WRMIs with another TRSW relay of a European low power, this one licensed on 6020, Radio Delta International. Publicity continues to overlook 7780. Both are S9+10/20 here but not unnoisy. Starts with a bit of YROT theme, Second Mate Susan ID, Cap`n Ric introducing RDI. Starts with RDI`s very own theme song with Dutch lyrix including kilohertz. 0204 greeting from Andy in Switzerland, and someone else, presumably listeners rather than Deltans. 0213 QSL address as firstname.lastname@example.org — then I realise I am missing the Wiener Philharmoniker Summer Night Concert, on PBS! Over to OETA on RF 13 for my attention, undivided except for stereo to one ear each. I`ll have to catch the repeat 3 hours later for the first part. Great music, and scenery, but still hard to spot the token females in the orchestra (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, UT Sat Aug 28 at 0118, S8-S9 of pirate rock music; 0123 Ball Smacker Radio YL offers eQSLs, tenpins collision. Yet another regularly scheduled Friday night broadcast for convenience of the FCC, week after many weeks. Also JBA carrier on 6974.9 presumed Nowhere Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Fri Aug 27 at 2355 checking all WBCQs via Maryland remote: 3265 is on and poorly audible with gospel huxter, seems // 7490. 4790 with TOMBS. 6160 with Area 51, Amos `n` Andy? 9330 with WLCR. Then I axually listen to `AAAWWW` on 7490 webcast, where already at 2359, Allan does not realize his mike is open as he exclaims about some tone we`re hearing, as FKB gospel huxter is wrapping, and as they are setting up for the live show to follow. As soon as that`s underway, UT Sat Aug 28 at 0000 with WTO theme I recheck all the lower 4 SW frequencies and indeed they have united.
Cold wave has hit Maine, from 88 F yesterday, it`s 58 today. Complaining about all broadcasting on the way out, everything to The Cloud; complaining about “gendering“, people objecting to being classified as male or female. Angela reminds us that she is convinced Trump is really still president. WBCQ has enemies who don`t like WLCR or TOMBS, but they “will be crushed“.
0026 says new tube is in — or rather, on the way; hope to get the SuperStition back on at full 500 kW “within days“. 0028 call from Annoying Freddie in Massachusetts, about drinking on the air. It seems Angela has a small? bottle of wine, and they attempt a toast over the phone. Quadricasting tonight. The SS transmitter is a Continental 420D, right? What about the warranty on the tube? he asks. But C`l do not make that component. Allan says they are “working on it“, the warranty issue. How much does it cost, $100K? Much more than that, like for a house. $200K? Even more than that, but will not say how much now.
Datestamp: 27th of August, YOOLF 2021. 0035 caller from Durango, Colorado with reception report, 7490 poor but best as to be expected. 0037 call from Jason in Nova Scotia, implying he will visit in person? Someone sent quotation from Thomas Paine, about “trying men`s souls“ and how that may apply to current events. TANSTAAFL. 0045 Jason calls back to greet Angela after she complained about being ignored.
“We have enemies who don`t like Worlds Last Chance or Brother Stair — very sick and deranged people“. He seems to think they are behind the FCC/WHRI SNAFU. 0048 Tim in Connecticut thankfully briefly, and as someone pointed out always happens, the stream craps out at 0053. I get it started again. 0055 to read email, nothing significant. 0059 prayer, that the Lord must have a great sense of humor, and “please cleanse this world of virus“, etc. [? why didn`t He stop it in the first place??], 0101 joins Hal Turner a minute late as usual. Here`s John Carver`s version:
“Tonight’s AAWWW — Tonight’s show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan is taking about Angela being naked in the studio. Also complaining about the temperature as it’s now 58 degrees at the station. Then talk of people wanting to do away with TV and radio and put everything on the cloud. Then talk about the war concerning gender talk. Was also announced that the new tube for the superstation is on its way to Maine. Phone call at 0027 from Freddie who is off the phone in a short time. Phone call at 0035 with a reception report from an old listener. Phone call at 0037 from a listener asking about the other frequencies they’re using tonight. Allan then reads something that was sent to the station last week by a listener and written by Thomas Paine. Phone call at 0048 from Tim who manages to turn a pleasant non political show political as usual. Finally off the phone Tim calls back immediately to make a point and then off the phone again. Reading of emails at 0056 and closing prayer at 0059. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
