** CANADA. 351-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0625 UT, dash and YKQ, which is 500 watts from Ft Rupert / Waskaganish, Quebec, at the southern end of James Bay near Ontario border. a.k.a. Wînipekw in Cree.
335-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0627 UT, dash and YLD, which is 1000 watts from Chapleau, Ontario.
Still some storm noise but nothing much nearby; I notice that such noise is now much heavier on tropical SW than on LW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also USA
** CANADA. 6030, Sept 7 at 0631 UT, reactivated CFVP Calgary received direct vs residual Cuban jamming; ad with a .ca link, back to comedy routines with audience laughter, not fully readable but glad to get anything from this 100-watter. Wonder if something have been beefed up lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6060, Sept 7 at 0640, RHC English with buzz in irregular pulses, rather than continuous humbuzz.
6140, Sept 7 at 0641, RHC English JBA in a leapfrog mixing product of 6060 over VG S9+20/30 6100 another 40 kHz beyond, including trace of same buzz of 6060. A long time since I have detected any of these on 49m; more:
6230, Sept 7 at 0642, RHC English, JBA in leapfrog mixing product of 6100 over VG 6165 another 65 kHz beyond; during boring voice-over translation of an official about vaccines. Nothing audible on 6270, which would have been 6060 over 6165 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** FRANCE. 25800, Sept 7 at 1506 via Kuwait SDR, no signal from RFI Swahili, but JBA on 21690; still not making the big leap (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, another Tuesday Sept 7, so I`m monitoring via UTwente from 1457. Carrier on by 1459 with tail of some unID English program, typical misalignment; then “This is IRRS, Milano, signing on“ and 1500 into presumed Urdu from Kashmir Civitas, via ROMANIA, “Salaam Aleikum“ which is originally Arabic. Yes, indeed, let peace be with us! Much worse reception than usual for weekly broadcast, noisy but reduced by USB tuning until cutoff at 1529*. Solar flux hitting magic 100 has not helped (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. Unsolicited but very welcome eQSL received UT Sept 7 from MRI: “Hello Glenn. It was amazing how many liked the classical music mix. We will do it again. See attached QSL for your great report in WOR 2102.

** NORTH AMERICA. 9720, Sept 7 at 1436, the thintonations of Josiah
Elias, of Station YHWH, S5-S7 direct. I beat Rick Barton, AZ, by 3
minutes posting about this to WOR iogroup, hi; he also had YHWH the
morning of Sept 5 on 9700 instead. Rick says 9720 ran until 1630*
while on Sept 5, 9700 heard 1703-1750+.
BTW, I notice that when the pious Allan Weiner mentions YHWH logs from FRW on Worldwide, he refers to it as “religious“; can`t bring himself to say “anti-Christ“, which is clearly what YHWH is all about, if not using that exact term (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Sept 7 at 2324 UT, I condescend to monitor KFAQ Tulsa as this is the postponed date for format/slogan change. Amid local sports talk about Jenks HSFB, ID in passing still as “Talk Radio 11-70“; but at 2330 before next show, “The all-new Blitz 11-70“. Whether callsign KFAQ ex-KVOO is also to be exxed not yet confirmed. 50 kW groundwave around 200 km not enough to overcome storm crashes here (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** SPAIN. 11940, Sept 7 at 2128, REE S American frequency is back on air! Had been missing since Aug 27 or maybe 26. Not only that, but all four frequencies are modulating! 17855, 15520 and 11670 also audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SRI LANKA. 11870, Sept 7 at 1429, S7-S9 of dead air with flutter, something about to sign-on? 1430 JBA talk. Aoki shows AWR in Chinese for entire hour 1400-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 382-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0623 UT, ND beacon SP, which is 25 watts from SPringfield IL; I was tuned to 380-USB — often get more readable copy thus than right on the frequency.
255-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0629 UT, NDB FWC, which is 25 watts from Fairfield / Wayne County IL. Last logged Feb 19, since then nil in still absence of SW Stillwater OK. This is in SE IL between Mt Vernon and Mt Carmel. But there is no other known Fairfield in another IL county.
245-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0620 UT, NDB FS, which is 400 watts from Sioux Falls SD; I was tuned to 243-USB; on 243 itself there are zero NDBs in N America per dxinfocentre.com. See also CANADA for two more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 9330, Sept 7 at 1434 and still at 2129, no signal from WBCQ/WLCR. Maybe they are working on installing the new $240K PA tube? At 2129, 7490- is on and JBA, 6160- with JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-oceanic JBA 9-kHz MW carrier search, Sept 7 at 0618-0621 UT, with listed kW powers: 846-Kiritimati 10, 837-Canary 10, 711-Morocco 300, 531-Algeria 600, 882-Canary 20.
Let me explain: I rarely get any audio on these, but the source in most cases is pretty clear, taking into account SR/SS times, known powers. I am NOT claiming any country since I don`t care about counting countries, rather reporting what is really happening. If there be even a carrier, there IS DX! With my equipment and deep-North America location, this is about all I can accomplish. First time this `season` anything on 531; Algeria has been reported missing a lot. If 531 were in, so would be 891 Algeria as big het on WLS, but not yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
