** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 4, continued from last report of LRA36, still running at 1714 UT via Brasil remote: mostly music, still past 1827, 1859, but cuts off at 1907* after another song is over (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CANADA. 382-MCW, Sept 5 at 0611 UT, ND beacon dash and YPL, JBA, which is 1000 watts from Pickle Lake, Ontario.
366-MCW, Sept 5 at 0612 UT, NDB dash and YMW, 500 watts from Maniwaki, Quebec.
362-MCW, Sept 5 at 0613 UT, NDB dash and SB, 500 watts from Greater Sudbury, Ontario (how is that different from Lesser Sudbury?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6000 & 6060 & 6165, Sept 5 at 0555, all three RHC English are splattering plus/minus 10 kHz; overdriven modulation from the studio? 6060 also with its humbuzz; 6100 off, 5040 Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15140, Sept 5 at 1926, no signal on RHC English frequency; again, she`s on 15370 instead, but after a few words stops modulating tho S9 carrier stays on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** FRANCE. 25800, Sept 5 at 1505, no signal from RFI in Swahili, into RSA and Kuwait SDRs, despite RFI registering 11m this hour only effective today starting what used to be the S-season. The only major broadcaster bold enough to MUF itself up already. Instead, still JBA on 21690. Will they really get around to QSY tomorrow? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** JAPAN. 18119-USB, Sept 4 at 2115, JR7#TG, contacting a W9 et al., JBA and not sure about one of his letters, R? No such station at qrz.com, but definitely starts with JR7, around sunrise in Japan. A couple of other unID phonehams up the band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, UT Sun Sept 5 at 0100, The Mighty KBC reactivated here via Nauen, GERMANY, ex-9925 summer frequency for past quadrimonth; UT Sundays at 0000-0200 to N America, should stay on 5960 until next May. From Nov should again confront German overrun from Turkey CCI. VG S9+10/20 but seems more fading than we had on 9925 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. An hour earlier I wasn`t hearing any, but by 0122 UT Sun Sept 5, I have four pirates at once, and then a fifth, as they love to run on Saturday nights, especially holiday weekend. Too much to track them all, but this is what I get, plus later HFU uplooks:
6960-USB, Sept 5 at 0122, pirate music. Many reports here of WDOG, but before 0119: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85947.15.html
6950-USB, Sept 5 at 0122, pirate music. Several reports here of R. Genix, but mostly before 0100: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85952.0.html
6930-AM, Sept 5 at 0123, JBA pirate music. No reports of a 6930-AM at HFU, but a few minutes earlier of Radio 48 on 6930-USB: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85954.0.html
6925-AM, Sept 5 at 0124, stronger than 6930, pirate music, 0125 announcement, 0126 “This is Radio Station SSN [??? or similar]“. Repetitive vamping music and “Please stand by, broadcast will begin in one minute“, but in less than a minute cuts off the air, and no soon return. These logs say it was X-FM on 6925, which moved to 6285-USB at 0127; how did they know? “RH“ later said that among: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85955.0.html
6935-USB, Sept 5 at 0129, this one has just come on, pirate music; 0132 a countdown, otherwise unreadable announcement; 0137 “Radio for You“ seems like ID and again at 0141, music. Several logs here after 0149 first as unID, then as Radio 48: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85959.0.html
At 0142 when I quit, all these except 6925 are still going, never mind competition from WBCQ, Mighty KBC or WTWW (Glenn Hauser,OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 7, KOCO “5“ OKC is marginal at first but catches my ears at 1530 UT Sunday Sept 5 as a church choir is singing showtunes! And not a mask in sight. Turns out to be “St Luke`s on Broadway“ live? from the major United Methodist Church in OKC, once frequented by some of my uncles & aunts. Shortly preacher launches into long sermon past 1600, somehow centered on Angela Lansbury. By 1610 he mentions Jerry Orbach per captioning; I am not auditioning. 1615 back to tune, “Beauty & the Beast“; they also have a small instrumental ensemble (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2102 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept 4 from 1800.5 on IRRS SW 7290 Bulgaria, S9+5/15 into UTwente; tuned in too late to track the runup to this transmission. UTw is not hearing 918 kHz Italy relay, only music presumably Spain. But 918 is also confirmed, Italia AM, Villa Estense, S9+25 into nearby Noale remote, a few seconds apart from 7290.
Missed checking WA0RCR, 1860-AM, circa 1930 Sept 4; anyone hear it?
Confirmed UT Sun Sept 5 from 0334 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+20 into neighborly Warrenton SDR atop some storm crashes, a line across the SE corner of MO extending from central OK per Blitzortung.
Once again there are no US SWBCs of WOR between 0130 UT Sat and 2230 UT Sun; stations pick the times, not me. For timely info, I strongly suggest you try to catch one of the first two airings on WRMI, UT Fri 0130 or UT Sat 0130; or, shhh! pod- or webcast ASAP. Next:
2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NE [new] 2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW [NOT Sunday, was error] 1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 5 at 0020, theatre organ music already on WTWW-2: but soon at 0021 a 3-minute hard-sell commercial by Ted; is he now inserting ads in Theater Organ Under The Arch? I guess not, Bob Heil then starts the real show at 0024 which runs unscathed until 0053. This week it`s inconvenient to listen to $tereo webcast, so I stay with SW which is not too distorted but totally mono (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Hepburn Tropo map shows big Level-5 blob across southern KS into OK, and even Level-6 centred on Enid. TV bandscan Sept 5 at 1513 UT finds two decoding: RF 15, KSNW “3“ Wichita, and RF 31, KDCU “31“ Derby with Univision. Also BAD signals on RF: 10, 12, 20, 21, 28, 30, 34, 35; By 1607. 15 and 31 have Baddened, plux a few others, 8, 11 and 26; mostly correlating with Wichita market (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6948-AM, Sept 5 at 0535, JBA carrier S3-S6. Could it be — Radio 48? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
This report dispatched at 1952 UT September 5
