** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 16 at 1440 and later, NO signals from LRA36 into two Brasilia SDRs or one Montevideo; another Saturday missed, but always only a repeat of Wednesday, if any then (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, Oct 17 at 0014 S9/+10 of old song from 30s/40s; 0016 DJ over music, “This is –??– Radio, moving to 6965“. But it keeps going on 6960-AM with soul music; 0015 ID as “–??– AM“, and still 6960 at 0017 when I finally check 6965.
6965-USB: there is a station here now, much louder and in USB with rock; 6960-AM continues much softer altho also reading S9+10, tho 6965-USB now peaks at S9+20. At 0025 ID as Wolverine Radio on the upper one. I guess for a while before I tuned in there was a clash on 6960, altho I only heard one. These reports say it was Wolverine moving from 6960 to 6965, keyword “back“ in song titles: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87825.0.html
6960-AM, at 0028, catch a Ball Smacker Radio ID. It had been a regular on same frequency previous nights UT Saturdays from 0100. More tonight reports of BSR: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,87826.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [non]. 5925, Oct 16 at 0320, VOA panel show pauses to plug downloads available of various programs, S8/S9. This is 100 kW via Botswana, English at 0300-0500, beam switch at 0400 from 10 to 350 degrees, maybe slightly improving thisaway, but anyway sufficient (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WBCQ, `AAAWWW`, UT Sat Oct 16 at 0000, report from John Carver arrived a minute too late to include in my own previous report:
“Tonight’s show started more or less on time this evening. Poor signal on 7490 and at times there was no signal at all. 6160 dropped out a few times and all that could be heard was Cuba. Actually this evening the best signal is on 4790 and it’s not all that great. Opening comment from Angela about the rain forest. Allan says he’s tired of always talking politics and would like to just talk about radio for a change but talks politics to try and prove to us that the government is out to get us. Also takes jabs at his favorite, the IRS and Congress. He posits that instead of defunding the police we should be defunding the government. Defends Trump’s efforts to try and reform the government. He says that the government is after our wallets and Angela states that it’s our rights they want to take.
He apologizes to us for all the problems with the superstation stating they have not been able to run more than thirty-six hours till another problem pops up. The company still has someone there tinkering with the transmitter and whenever they turn around a new problem pops up. He is very upset about this transmitter but had wanted to buy American and wonders if that was a mistake on his part. Says that if he had been thinking he would have put a backup transmitter in place to avoid downtime but since it was brand new and American made he thought it would be alright. They are looking into a backup transmitter now.
Phone call at 0023 from Rabishu about a foreign ham net which Angela answered at Allan’s urging. Then some talk about Nearfest and their plans to be there next spring. Allan wants to read the Free Radio Weekly and while trying to find it gets a message from Hal Turner saying that his website is under attack and he doesn’t know if tonight’s show will stream or not and Allan calls out for whoever is monitoring his program at the station to see if Hal Turner’s show shows up on the feed tonight. Phone call at 0049 from a preacher who is also a radio pirate and calls himself the Gospel Gunslinger. He finally finds the Free Radio Weekly and reads a few items from it. Then a bit more about politics and reading of emails at 0056. Closing prayer at 0100 and off the air at 0102. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)
** U S A. 7780, Oct 16 at 0323, WRMI S9/+10, much stronger than usual here off the side of the NE azimuth, yet still weaker than 7730 & 7570 with TOMBS. Here we hear the often-played Andean tune on quena and guitar, so must be world-music filler; 0325, Bishop Bob Biermann claims this is “9395“ — what does he know? It so happens on the skedgrids, the 0300-0330 block is a blank space, neither System F nor System D (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Oct 17 at 0003, WTWW-2 already in `TOUTA`, but it`s also prime time for pirates which I attend; by 0040 I have switched to WTWW-2 $tereo webcast, but Bob Heil is already wrapping it up at 0047, promoting *next* week to be the best ever, tribute to George Wright. That was supposed to be *this* week as of *last* week, so evidently this is a repeat of that instead of new — they all start to sound alike. 0049 it`s over to hardsell Tedad, so if really an hour long must have started circa 2347 Oct 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 7505, Oct 16 at 0322, WRNO is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 1580, Oct 16 at 0610 UT, briefly atop CCI jumble, Spanish super-hype voice actor (SHVA) ID as “Tigre“ — that`s KFCS, Colorado Springs CO, 140 watts non-direxional at night, per NRC AM Log, referring to FM 94.7. It`s also the closest and by far most likely of the few USSS on 1580.
However, this is a confusing and convoluted situation. NRC shows the FM translator for KFCS-1580 is K276GG on 103.1; while the station group “Tigre 94.7“ consists of those two stations plus KRYE 94.7. Presumably KRYE 94.7 is the real originator of all this. WTFDA FM DB for 94.7 in CO shows KRYE itself is in Beulah, 18 kW as “La Fiebre“ with Spanish Tejano format. Could “Tigre“ be confused with similar sounding “Fiebre“?? But there`s more. KRYE has a booster -FM1 also on 94.7 in Pueblo with 2.1 kW. But in Colorado Springs itself on 94.7 there is K234AJ, 84-watt Christian in English relay of KTLF 90.5. With a separate but probably previous entry for the same except call as K290AK which would not be 94.7 at all. Where is Beulah? Remote tiny town SW of Pueblo. Strangely, nothing about KRYE 94.7 here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beulah,_Colorado But site is not really in Beulah, rather 12 minutes to the south and 2 minutes east, comparing geo coordinates. Ah, for the good ole days of XEDM Hermosillo on clear channel 1580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
