** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer search, Sept 26 at 1356: JBA carriers on 12820, 13020, 13130, 13190. Also at 1421, 9155 at S5-S9, 9255 at S5-S8 in Chinese. All of these fit against Sound of Hope, in Aoki & EiBi except unlisted 13190 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 5025, Sept 26 at 0603, R. Rebelde is S9+20/30 and splashing out +/- 13 kHz almost to 5040, where RHC is already off tonight: opposite situation to last night, returning the favor. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 13700 and much weaker 13740 but still spurless, Sunday Sept 26 at 1347, RHC with COVID-19 medical info, instead of `En Contacto` DX program. `En Cía del Doctor` had been scheduled at 1350-1400 after E.C. at 1335-1350. I`m been remiss in monitoring for E.C., whether it still exist without Arnie (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** GERMANY. 5905, Sept 26 at 0608, JBA YL in German: that would be Deutscher Wetterdienst, scheduled also on 6180 where there is an even weaker JBA carrier, both 0600-0630 daily, 2x 10 kW at Pinneberg but based in Hamburg. It`s now the #1 SW station in Germany! ahead of DW on page 475, WRTH 2021. A “National Radio“ station? Guess not. I made the mistake of hunting for it first in that sexion among 15 pages of detailed almost-all-FM listings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** GUAM. 11965, Sept 26 at 1417, rock with heavy beat, then talk sorta Thai? S9-S7 with flutter. Aoki shows KSDA this semihour only daily in Ash language. WRTH shows this under, where else, Thailand, page 498, with Chin(Asho) to S Asia at 1400-1430 then on 11870 in B-20 season. EiBi calls it C-A for MYA[nmar] “Chin-Asho: Myanmar-Ayeyarwady, Rakhine (30,000) [csh]“ not to be confused with CA which is Cantonese (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 11725, Sept 26 at 0558, RNZI is S9+10/20, the SSOB and almost the OSOB, some JBA carriers on 11815, 12000, Brasil and Cuba. I expect to hear Bell Bird and QSY announcement to 7245, but 11725 keeps going with 0600 pips and RNZ news. Sked on website still shows 0558/0559 changeover. After 0600, nothing on 7245; nor 7255 Nigeria, nor 7265 France which is M-F only. So vacant! NZ perhaps confused as DST has just started. Domestic program relays will now be one real UT hour earlier, not necessarily SW block frequency scheduling too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 326-MCW kHz, Sept 26 at 0623 UT, ND beacon MA, which is 400 watts from Midland, Texas. I remain wondering why I hear so few NDBs from Baja Oclajoma as opposed to many more to the north as far as Canada. My E-W longwire should be equally unfavorable to both, altho Midland is WSW rather than S (Glenn Hauser, OC, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2105 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept 25 at 1943 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10 into nearby KB0FX KiwiSDR, about 15 minutes into so started circa 1928.

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 26 at 0017 tune-in, WTWW-2 `Theater Organ Under The Arch` sometimes starts this early, but this week it`s almost over! Bob Heil, “start winding up“, finishing at 0027.5 WTWW begging for money from listeners despite being a commercially supported? station and by Scriptures For America. So TOUTA must have started circa 2357 Sept 25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic [and non] JBA MW carrier search Sept 26 at 0615-0620, not in the order tuned: 531, 612, 684, 774(2), 837, 846, 855, 882(2), 909, 999, 1017, 1107, 1116, 1125(2), 1143, 1152, 1179, 1215(2), 1305(2), 1413, 1422 kHz. All presumably Eurafrican, holding up later and later, except 846 Paficican, Kiritimati. Note that as always, level of QRM/splash is a factor at the moment tuning across a certain channel whether it will be detected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
