** SCOTLAND [non]. 5950, Sat Aug 28 at 2200, `Encore` classical music via WRMI is mistakenly playing the 21/8 episode per the Playlist; but next airing UT Sun Aug 29 at 0100 on 5850 & 7780 is correct 28/8 edition; unfortunately simul with another TRSW Euro relay, non-classical, on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: confirmed UT Sun Aug 29 at 0030 on WRMI 5950, S9+15/25 via Knoxville SDR: last time for this airing, to be replaced by something else next week.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 29 at 0347 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 14 minutes into so started circa 0333, good but with storm noise despite none nearby to neighbor SDR. Next:

Thanks this week to Dan in Cincinnati, who says, “Dear Glenn, I am writing to thank you again for all of the great information that you gather and report weekly“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 14325-USB, Aug 28 at 2302, Hurricane Watch Net, no contacts heard, but K2JB is reading some warnings; says will also be active on 7268[LSB] tomorrow at 8 am CDT = 13 UT; but at 0018 UT Aug 29, the latter is certainly active too with Ida advisories, as heard via Knoxville SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12788, 8502, 4316, Aug 28 at 2145, attempts to monitor USCG New Orleans, NMG as scheduled per EiBi at 2130-2145: nothing.

4318 approx., Aug 29 at 0630, fax at S9+10/20, NMG scheduled 0600-0855.

12788-USB, Aug 29 at 1749, S3-S5 into Knoxville SDR, with fadeouts, marine weather about tropical storms in Atlantic, waves starting off W Africa. Obs mostly longitude 50 or less, nothing to do with Hurricane Ida. NMG N.O. sked at 1715-1750. 1752 robotic voice with Norfolk address, originating there? 1753 finally mentions Ida landfall briefly, on to Juliet; “This is US Coast Guard Communications Command, out out“ and off 1755.5* = 5.5 minutes later than sked. No individual station ID. Recheck at 1823, fax beepery approx. 12790 as sked 1800-2105 for NMG. Nothing ever audible on 8502 or 4316 and suspect not really on air in daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 870, Aug 29 at 0638 UT, WWL New Orleans apparently live with calls about Hurricane Ida; Cuban whoop-whoop QRM comes and goes, usually JBA underneath but some surges. Of course, WWL is easily the dominant signal here, scarcely one megameter away. It will be interesting to hear whether it be knocked off the air, not to mention WRNO 7505, which is anyway erratic; check at 0100-0400.

Many listeners afar have complained about whooping: apparently a very much-out-of-order Cuban transmitter rather than deliberate jamming, and similars have shown up on other frequencies. WRTH 2021 has three R Relojes on 870, 10 kW each at Bueycito, Granma, and Baracoa-Van Van, Guantánamo; 1 kW at Sancti-Spíritus, S.S. The first two are in eastern Cuba while S.S. is in central Cuba, more likely to be the whooper except it`s lowest-powered. IF this info be correct, current.

Terry Krueger`s Cubalist has not been updated in exactly 5 years; back then, it showed on 870 one Reloj in S.S.; the Baracoa Reloj on 860 instead; R. Progreso also on 870 in S.S. per WRTH 1997; and a Progreso in Pilón, Granma. DXers closer to north of Cuba ought to be able to get DF bearing on the whooper, from which part of the Great Antille? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Aug 29 at 0020, WTWW-2 $tereo webcast of TOUTA is already underway; in fact wrapping up at 0025 with `Mr Sandman` until 0027, back to Ted`s hard-sell commercials. Must have started very early circa 2356 Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1948 UT August 29
