** CHINA. 10960, Sept 17 at 1451, JBA Chinese with heavy flutter; and 12500, slightly better S7-S9 with flutter, each the only CNR1 jammer signals on their band areas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SPAIN. 17855, Sept 17 after 2200, another try to hear RNE English this Friday, but signal direct is VP; 15520 away from us is slightly better; 11940 is OFF again; 11670 VP like 17855. Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas.
But at 2227 came this to the WOR iog: “17855 — I was looking forward to hearing a bit of RNE in English. It looks like Radio Taiwan International in Spanish is now occupying the frequency with 20 over S9 signal. Always good to have a chance to work on my Spanish though. Doug White, KA5ETS, Carrboro, NC“
I replied: “Doug, Are you sure about that? Don`t see how it could happen. I was also trying to listen at 2200, but unusually 17855 was barely audible. 15520 a bit better, 11940 no signal, 11670 VP too.
Checking several ENAm remotes after 2315, still something on 17855 but can`t even be sure of language. By now Spain would be // on 11940 if it were on the air, so nothing to compare it with. 11670 after 2300 is Cuba, not Spain. Music 2343 not // Castilian? talk JBA on 17855 into Bonaire. 17855 at 2330 with a timesignal typical of Spain on half-hours. I would not be quick to decide 17855 is gone for season, but whatever it is, certainly almost gone today.“
17855 is down to a JBA carrier into remotes before 2400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 17 at 2211, VOT English direct is VP but clear of RTTY if tuned in LSB only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2104 monitoring: confirmed new time 0330 UT Friday September 17 on WRMI 5985, S9 into TN remote, need USB/narrow to evade 5980 Cuban jamming, but much better where it`s aimed, S9+5/15 into Bonaire and much stronger than adjacent 5980 jamming, no problem.
IRRS had advised that effective immediately, the 7290 SW broadcast would be Friday at 1815 instead of Saturday at 1800. Fri Sept 17, I tune in early via UTwente, hearing the usual weak Chinese including its timesignal at 1800, apparently off around 1805. So no longer an overlap problem with it. About *1808 the IRRS open carrier is on at S8-S9; still gets some splatter from 7275 and/or 7300 but co- and immediate-adjacents are clear of QRM. No Aida or IRRS sign-on, but at 1814:51 cut on rock music in progress, with hard to understand DJ announcements, maybe as CPN? 1824 Radio ?something. Meanwhile at 1821 I confirmed via Noale remote that 918 kHz from Italy was //, no WOR either. I notified IRRS, but no reply yet as to what happened or to reconfirm whether WOR is still supposed to run Fridays at 1815.
Something`s always wrong at — WORLD OF RADIO. I may make a mistake and must correct sooner or later; affiliates fail to broadcast it as scheduled, or cut off part of it. O well.
Confirmed, however, Friday Sept 17 at 2030 as scheduled on IRRS via Italia AM 918 kHz, VG S9+27 into nearby Noale SDR. Next:

First broadcasts confirmed UT Friday September 17 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850, VG direct; 7780, good S9+5/15 into UTwente SDR, Holland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Sept 18 from 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`, this or other SW frequencies not even checked. Complaints, complaints. WBCQ is being persecuted over free speech by the federal government; Democrats are Communists, Trump is President, etc., etc. Angela`s Angle is about rent payments and landlords, blame the government for the situation. Computer for email is acting up, being hacked right now? 0030 finally datestamp as 17 of September, YOOLF 2021; now from Studio 9 in Deland of Fla, where 7490 is being monitored at S9+40; 93 — “7490“ [sic] is pinning the meter, S9+60 or 80. Yes, SuperStition is back on air. With “Worlds Last Chance and WBCQ Radio programming“ — [Really, since the Sunday night tests??? which luckily included WOR for once]. Visited TOM on the way “up“ [to Florida]: the saints, they are blessed and wonderful. Rejects complaints that WBCQ is “too white“. Allan says he has “seen and heard demons“, anti-Satan sermon. 0041 asks for emails. Then reads entire article about SW from Radio World by James Careless; Allan interjects “don`t forget Glenn Hauser, World of Radio“ — as J.C. never did mention us. 0056 a couple far-right e-mails, the first from one Patrick; 0059 prayer, 0101 into Hal Turner. John Carver`s version: “Tonight’s show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan and Angela in the studio. After quick mic check program starts off with Angela’s Angle which is about landlords doubling and tripling rents on apartments and forcing people out of their apartments. Money allotted to pay landlords during the Covid crises never actually made it to the landlords and ended up elsewhere so landlords come up the losers. Quickly turned into an indictment of the communist, socialist Democrats. Then jabs at electric cars, ending of fossil fuels within ten years etc. Allan then announces that they are in the studio in Fla now and that the superstation is working just fine. Then a short sermon from Rev. Al. His words, not mine. Reading of an article from Radio World about the tech of shortwave nowadays at 0042. Reading of emails at 0055. Closing prayer at 0059 and program off at 0101. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
