DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated Sept 6: http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html
** CHINA. 13130, Sept 6 at 1439, CNR1 jammer, JBA with flutter. None others in the 12s-13s or 10s-11s, which means as I approximately bandscan, 10.7-11.2 and 12.5-13.55 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** FRANCE. 25800, Sept 6 at 1507, still no signal from RFI Swahili into RSA SDR, but JBA on 21690. Anyway they are all set to QSY if they dare before end of A-21 season (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** GUINEA [and non]. 9650, Sept 5 at 2256, no signal from RTG into UTwente: hastening to check only SW frequency following news of coup, but has been inactive or sporadic for months. There is a JBA carrier, probably VOK in Japanese as scheduled, but more QRDRM from 9655 covering 9650-9660, which would be CNR1 as scheduled 2157-0100 via Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems. Another 9650 check next day Sept 6 at 2225: nothing.
Domestic Broadcasting Survey of April 2021 showed 9650 had been heard as recently as March, sked 0600-2400. In Communication of the British DX Club, Lionel Clyne in Kent had reported it July 14 at 1944. It seems my last log of it was January 23 at 0742. May I point out that major broadcasters would not give a QRM break to a small country with only one possible SW frequency; altho Cuba did move off 9650 for some reason (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 6 at 0616, carrier more than usual JBA, presumed R. Kiribati. I note that a PNW DXer who gets it much stronger says no modulation is to be heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, Sept 5 at 2223, JBA music, presumed pirate Nowhere Radio as particular to this off-frequency. unID reported here between 2010 and 2200 only: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,86017.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, Sept 6 at 2217, JBA pirate music and talk. These say Radio Free Whatever from 2207: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,86087.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6885-AM, Sept 6 at 2218, JBA carrier. Nothing reported now in HFU, but most recently in the morning by Dan Robinson, via a remote in New Mexico; et al., Radio Pushka: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85992.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SPAIN. 11940, Sept 6 at 2209, this REE for S America is still missing during token English semihour Monday; as `cello music is starting: about time for another “DX Program“ = mailbag, but not yet. Good on 17855, fair on 15520, and audible on 11670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 6 at 2227, VOT English is not AWOL today but JBA direct on LSB to avoid USB RTTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 420-MCW kHz, Sept 6 at 0623 UT, ND beacon FQ, which is 25 watts from Fairmont, Minnesota.
257-MCW kHz, Sept 6 at 0705 UT, NDB JYR, which is 25 watts from York, Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2102 monitoring: confirmed Sunday September 5 from 2000.8 on IRRS SW via Italia AM, 918 kHz, via Noale SDR – as I tune in at 1959, someone in Manchester is already running this frequency! So I camp. But they depart as soon as WOR is heard. BTW, Kiwis think my IP is in Grove OK — Not.
Also confirmed Sun Sept 5 at 2230 on WRMIs, via TN SDR: new 5950 VG S9+10/15; 9955, S9+27. Almost synchronized but probably separate playouts from different Systems.
Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 6 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.
Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 6 at 0130 on WRN N America webcast.
Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 6 from 0300:38 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 6159.948, S9+10/20 direct but splash from 6165 Cuba. Then I check a TN KiwiSDR in SAM mode which measures carrier offset at 6160.000 minus 30-31 Hz, or 6159.969-6159.970 — which to believe? Or it might have varied that much in the few minutes between them, but SAM does not show much fluxuation now.
BTW, by 0608 recheck direct, 6160- is playing jazz, presumably from the Area 51 webfill, rather than back to TOMBS from 0500; Overlooked? Now these are // if not synch with The Overkiller: 5800, 5850, 5890, 5950, 7570, 7730 for starters, probably also on several 4 and 9 MHz.

** U S A. 7489.9v, Sun Sept 5 after 2230, WBCQ with `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`, listening better here via TN remote rather than mono webcast which is rather distorted. I expect to catch the first half tomorrow at 2300 on the secret semi-repeat. But:
7489.9v, Mon Sept 6 at 2225 first check, NO signal from any of the 5 WBCQs, turned off since there are storms all along the NB/ME border. Propagation? 7850-RCUSB CHU is audible, and so is 9265V WINB. After 2300 via Maryland remote, still no 7490- but now the webcast is OK for `UBMP` until chopped for McDonald`s! ad at 2330, and `Camp Constitution Radio`, show apparently attached to different national pre-commercials. But does McD really know about such a political adjacency? The rest still missing 2300+ except a carrier on 6160-.
7490- still silent UT Tue Sept 7 at 0015 during `FTIOM` but which is well heard on the webcast of semi-classical documentary movie theme (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 6 at 0616: 711 > 621 strength probably Morocco & Canary; 882 where Wales has lowered power so probably also Canary 20 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
