** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, April 30 at 1450, still no signal from RNASG LRA36 into four Brazil SDRs checked, completing the entire month of April no-shows every Wednesday and Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6165, April 30 at 0608, dead air in English, S9+20. Only other RHC is 6060, but wrong language Spanish with humbuzz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, April 30 from 1455 I`m listening via Coimbatore, India SDR; carrier on briefly at 1457.5, resuming *1468 to stay, S9+10/20 from secret site. 1500 “Pastor Eric Foley“ of VOMK Maldives now has a formal sign-on in English, and into start of sermon at much weaker modulation until 1502 cut to the YL in Dhivehi at normal modulation. 1528.5 to music, 1529.7 English sign off just in time and a few seconds gap before *1530.0 Vatican starts Arabic on much weaker signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, April 30 at 0501-0505.7, UR1 via WRMI with English warnews roundup, `Ukraine: Security Issue`; this time with the OM fast-talker. VG into Maryland remote. I cannot recommend these highly enough, to immerse ourselves directly into the Ukrainian point of view; also airing earlier after 0000 UT on 1386 via Lithuania, easily heard via UTwente remote and no doubt many others in Europe, even Russia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2136 monitoring: confirmed Friday April 29 at 1815 on IRRS SW via BULGARIA 7290, into NW Ireland SDR; and at 1823 JBA on 14580 = 2 x 7290: audible on USB only where there is also RTTY warble, strange; rechecking 7290, it is true AM with LSB and USB and carrier. WOR also on AM Italia 1323 into nearby Noale SDR, but not on 918; but my voice JBA at 1820 on LW 207 kHz, apparently still sporadically experimental!
Had tuned in earlier: 7290 at 1755 with music presumed China; As usual, IRRS transmitter does not cut on air until almost 1801, S9/+15 with `Feature Story News` already in progress; 1803 `FSN Spotlight`; 1805 IRRS ID with Milano PO Box otherwise denied, and `News in Brief from the United Nations`; 1809 sitar? music fill. 1815 WOR also heard past 1830 on 1323 and 7290, so presumably played until finished at 1844.
I was also monitoring 1323 kHz from 1755 when there was talk about Sputnik Radio in the USA, then Jeff White`s voice so it was a fragment of `Wavescan`, chopped off at 1759.
WOR 2136 also confirmed Friday April 29 at 2030 on AM Italia 1323 kHz, S9+10, no signal on 918, and maybe a trace on 207 kHz.
Also confirmed UT Saturday April 30 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+25 into Missouri SDR.
Also confirmed UT Saturday April 30 from 0359.8 on Radio Angela via WBCQ 4790, fair into Maryland SDR vs storm crashes; and QRM from those one-second uteblaaps at 0400:01.5, 0403:01.5, so exactly 3:00 minutes apart tonight; interspersed with another one at 0401:41.5, not tracked further but should also be repeated every 3:00 minutes: these noises are not random and therefore must be deliberate.
Also confirmed Saturday April 30 at 1627 the 1600 on WRN North America webcast. Next:

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts: http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html Thanks this week for financial support from Mike Lewis, Alexander City, Alabama who sent a generous check to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, and testifies:
“I have been an on-and-off World of Radio listener since the late 1970’s … I regret that I have utterly neglected the most valuable and thankfully still enduring radio resource, World of Radio! … Fortunately, World of Radio is still with us. I am finally doing the right thing and offering a contribution, and plan to do more in the future.“
Also, last week`s thankee, Joe Caberlin, Ontario, would always also like to be known as VE1EJ; originally from Nova Scotia.

UNIDENTIFIED. 7555-7585 approx., April 30 at 0550, suspicious noise field surrounding TOMBS on WRMI 7570, which at S9+20 is not strong enough to overcome it on center frequency monitored direct. But noise stops abruptly at 0551, and I soon find it has shifted to 7510-7540. Could be something local? Or out of WRMI transmitter itself? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
