** CANADA. 3330 & 7850 & 14670, May 28 at 2325, all CHUs are still off after more than a week. Canada is out of time! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, May 28 at 2323, slow rock song S9 direct; off by 2405 recheck. Numerous reports before my time had this unID: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97685.0.html while after 0010, Yeah Man Radio was on 6925 but in AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 9913 USB, May 28 at 2328, in routine bandscan run across pirate music at this unusual spot, jazzy/rock, S7/S9. No STANAG QRM de 9912 now; not out of 9940 WTWW which is still AWOL. 2332 fading down and up, 2333 SSTV? but not much variety in the beepery. 2337 music, live performance with applause, but no announcements. 2357 quick ID? sounds like “You are listening to The Last Nowhere, TBA“; more SSTV. 2358.5 starts raunchy storyteller with wild audience roaring continuously; whether a tree is dead, does it matter? Describes his dick. Current references to Michael Jaxon being on trial, etc.
May 29 UT: 0010 SSTV. 0011.5 resume bawdy stories on and on; 0041 finishes, who was it? SSTV, 0042 music overlaps, ruining image? 0042.6 music. 0049, “This is CEO[?]. I`m gonna call it a night; this is sucked“ – or something like that. Later I check HFU and find lots of previous logs of Sycko Radio, UT May 22, 24, 27, but NOT tonight! Until now I was unaware he had been on 9913 before, and with lots of SSTV captures:

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, May 28 at 1909, for the fourth day, NO signal from secret R. Svoboda relay site into UTwente SDR. Last day heard was May 24, but my log then must be corrected as the times were wrong, one hour late: somehow I mistranscribed my original log scribble without noticing! Is no one paying attention? Not me, until I see it copied in new BC-DX as if it were correct, without challenge or correxion. BTW, I can`t help but notice that many of my fellow DX editors are rather lax about publishing correxions, no matter who may be at fault. Some minor typos may not matter but this certainly does. I want to get it right, later if not sooner. Is anything more important than accuracy? Everyone should remember that this is/was at 19-20 UT, not 20-21. Make it read as follows:
** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, May 24 at 1856 tune-in via UTwente, OC already on, 1857.6 JIP Russian, pause by 1900, IS and ID R. Svoboda. So the secret unofficial relay, via Armenia? Is active today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2140 monitoring: confirmed Saturday May 28 at 1600 on WRN stream to N America, everywhere.
Not confirmed Sat May 28 at 1930 on WRMI 15770: EXACTLY the same thing happens this week as last week: WOR starts but chopped after my first eight words, replaced by the same `cello fill music. I ask Jeff about it again and he now says it can`t play at this time for “technical reasons“, and may not ever be able to.
Confirmed Saturday May 28 at 1938.5 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, just finishing the NZ clip about halfway thru so again must have started early circa 1925, steady S9+8 into nearby Warrenton MO SDR – not to be confused with the one in Warrenton VA.
Distracted by piracy, missed checking UT Sunday May 29 at 0030 on WRMI 7780; did anyone hear it? Anyway at 0105 it`s on with TOMBS.
Confirmed UT Sunday May 29 from 0319 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+10 into nearby SDR but with some storm crashes. Next:
