** AUSTRALIA. 2368.5, Jan 22 circa 1845, no signal from R. Symban into NSW SDR; it`s the Greek ethnic station which used to be on 120m years ago but recently reported by someone nearby. Is anyone else hearing t? Found nothing on website about this frequency, but apparently quite active on VHF digital, mentions 151 MHz area. WRTH now shows most such stations are in 206 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CANADA. 1610 kHz, Jan 27 at 0158 UT, CHHA Toronto is managing to modulate unlike last night, checked via Milton Ont SDR, PSA in language with `O Canada` jingles, presumably Tagalog, with English admixtures, CHHA ID in passing, “Voice of the Community“, and “Radio Latin, Wednesday edition“. In the first place I was checking whether it still ID on air as “Radio Voces Latinas“ like the website is still branded. Completely covers CHRN Montreal if any. City to city, Toronto is 1764 km, Montreal a further 504 km at 2268. 10 kW CHHA is easily audible here direct, far better than 50 kW stations such as 1010 CFRB, 860 CJBC, 740 CFZM since 1610 is a `clear` channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6000, Jan 27 at 0708, RHC English still on here, S9+20; usually this one goes off earliest, but now all the rest of The Cuban Five, 5040, 6060, 6100, 9700 are off. You never know which combination will be active. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SPAIN. 12030, Jan 27 at 1603 direct; 1620 and still past 1700, again today! REE dead air in Spanish toward ME, but as usual good off the back to Maryland SDR. S9/+10 while much weaker // 11685 is modulating. Recheck at 1910, 12030 is still dead air, and by now 9690 has started with VG signal and mod. Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Some ND beacons, not new, but not often heard:
305 MCW kHz, Jan 27 at 0657 UT, RO, 150 watts at Roswell NM; tuned to 303-USB.
293 MCW kHz, Jan 27 at 0658 UT, TOR, 50 watts at Torrington WY; tuned to 291-USB
198 MCW kHz, Jan 27 at 0701 UT, DIW, 2000 watts at Dixon NC, indeed not miskeying now as DI_W (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 13565 CW, Jan 27 at 1552, HIFER beach K6FRC clearly audible with continuous IDs only, vs CODAR. Supposedly only 1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA. I don`t always log it when a trace is heard, but mostly not heard at all. When it is, always in the mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring: confirmed UT Thursday January 27 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5010, S9 into Knoxville SDR; as usual gospel huxter isn`t quite finished by 0129.5 when chopped off for WRMI ID. also 9395 is VG S9+15 into Knoxville. 5010 inaudible at Aguadas, Colombia SDR where it`s aimed; out of order?
