** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Sept 21 at 0100, RAE via WRMI, Fernando Farías opening a “new“ ATTW program, dated Wed Sept 8! Of course it seems new to you when recording, but not when played back 13 days later. Weekly? What happened to last week`s show? Also claims to be on 5800 — NOT! RTI Taiwan is there. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CANADA. 15034-USB, Sept 20 at 1509, CHR Trenton Military is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 20 at 2323-2327, finds only one VP/JBA signal in each out-of-band area: 13130 JBA Chinese with heavy flutter; 14980 and 16100 JBA. All fit as jammers of SOH in Aoki. But none audible in the 10-11 area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA [and non]. 6165, Sept 20 at 0300, RHC is absent, leaving 6159.949 WBCQ with Area 51 JL and then WOR, in the clear! Splashless. RHC not on alt. 6145 either. However by 0352 RHC back on 6165 doing its usual damage. Meanwhile, VOT English 0300 broadcast was audible on 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15230, Sept 20 at 2330, RHC Spanish S8 but suptorted; 15730 in Portuguese is S6-S7 somewhat distorted but not suppressed. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 15245, Sept 20 at 1508, S7-S9 W&M talk with heavy flutter. Both V of Korea and CRI are scheduled this hour in English, but accents seem Americanish rather than stilted, so I assume CRI, which is more day-path than from Korea North; via Urumqi in the land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems,
BTW, would you believe that on 15240, Aoki is still listing R. Munansi, the clandestine for Uganda via WWRB? It`s been gone for more than three years (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7110, Sept 21 at 0356, Horn-of-Africa music, 0359 announcement, IS? repeating a few times; 0400 three bells and continuous talk, presumably news on the hour. This first appeared Sept 6 per IAEU Intruder Watch, and then a lengthy discussion of what it could be – Somalia? Eritrea? Ethiopia. Some recognized it as R. Ethiopia. In Europe they were mostly reporting it after 1800. Ron Howard has had it in California by longpath circa 1500. I figured it might sign on at 0300, but nothing yet. Then saw someone reported it starting at 0400, but as above, already on before then today. WRTH 2021 shows NO SW frequencies for EBC/R. Ethiopia, the main government station, tho there are for various regionals on the 6 MHz band. I`m getting it first via Maryland remote at S5-S6, and then UTwente S9/+10. Intermittent LSB QRhaM in the exclusive “40m“ hamband worldwide. From 0412 a Slavic ham overrides it on same frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 11840, Sun Sept 19 at 2046 UT, anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH, good S9/+10 into Alberta SDR, as Josiah Elias preaches about coveting. Tnx to tips on the WOR iog from Rick Barton, AZ; and employing various different SDRs, Eric Fetters-Walp, WA, and Walt Salmaniw, BC.
BTW, altho no one seems to mention it now, his identity is a matter of public record from the FCC bust notice of December 31, 2014, about Martin K. Elliott, then in InyoKern CA, per: http://transition.fcc.gov/eb/FieldNotices/2003/DOC-331583A1.html tho trying that now, it is “temporarily unavailable“. But preserved in DXLD 15-04 under USA, not N America: https://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1504.txt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SPAIN. 11940, Sept 20 after 2200, token M/W/F English from REE this Monday: 11940 back on air to SAm, good strength, but ailing with modulation distorted and breaking up! Second only to 17855 VG to NAm. 15520 to ME is unusually JBA, allowing poor 11670 for Af to rate as better rather than worst. All via Maryland SDR, which gets them all better than I in deep North America. Recheck direct at 2355, 17855 has faded to a JBA carrier, 15520 & 11670 are off, leaving us nothing but the very distorted 11940 at S2-S5. Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 6165, Sept 20 at 0310, VOT English to S Asia, normally blocked by RHC English, but that`s absent and not on 6145 either. Weak S7-S8 but slightly better by 0330; and by 0352 recheck recovered by RHC resumed 6165. VOT also INTRUDING on // 7275 to NAm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U K [non]. 11825, Sept 20at 2333, something in English, poor S0-S2. Listed this hour only BBC via Tinang, PHILIPPINES for Indonesia. That`s nice but I daresay there are more English speaking listeners over here, far from armchair (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2104 monitoring: confirmed Sunday September 19 at 2019 the 2000 on IRRS SW via Italia AM, 918 kHz, S9+35 into nearby Noale SDR.
Also confirmed Sun Sept 19 at 2230 on WRMIs: 9955 S9+10; 5950 S9+20 into Georgia SDR. 2243 check direct, 9955 S9+10/20 with no jamming audible; 5950 S8-S9 and noisy.
Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 20 at 0030 on WRMIs direct: 7730, 9395, 9455 all very good.
Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 20 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America.
Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 20 from 0302:42 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 51 Hz per SAM at Maryland SDR = 6159.949, S9. JL had run a bit over. FREE of QubaRM as 6165 is OFF – and not on 6145 either. 6165 does bear weak S7-S8 V of Turkey, English to S Asia, // 7275 NAm. No problem at first but 0329 recheck, WOR/WBCQ/A51 has faded *way down to JBA, and now even TRT provides some splash as it has faded up a bit. Next, no chances on Tuesday, but:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW [news] 0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 7505, Sept 21 at 0103 and 0330, WRNO New Orleans is still
OFF. Have not checked every night, but believe gone since Hurricane
Ida hit August 29 – more than two sesquiweeks; still out of power or
was there more damage? Surely they will inform faithful listener
what`s going on at really weird website http://www.wrnoworldwide.com
— NOT, but refers to “upcoming“ shows in July 2021 and on another
page to shows in January, April and October *2023* — that`s
confident, but not gospel huxters, rather Euro music?? The page is
such as `Electro Technos` which would appear extraneous but linked
directly from WRNO site and with the same rolling landscape
background; and the listen linx don`t work. O well, Joe Costello`s
legacy still provides some amusing lunacy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-oceanic just barely audible MW carrier search, Sept 20 at 0640: 621, 711, 747(2), 846, 1125, 1413. Most likely NW Africa/Spain except 846 Kiritimati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6150-USB, Sept 20 at 2336, weak 2-way INTRUDER in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 13700, Sept 20 at 2326-2327* seems Chinese not // CNR1 jammers, off soon after tune-in. Nothing listed now but CNR-13 starting at 2355 per Aoki & EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
