** CHINA. 15920, June 3 at 0637, JBA carrier, presumed usual CNR1 jammer against Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. 17615, June 3 at 0642, music at S6/S8, second SSOB only to 17530 BBC Madagascar. EiBi shows two widely divergent CRIs now: German via Urumqi, Chinese via Kunming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** FRANCE. 15215.09V, June 3 at 0639, JBA unstable carrier. EiBi shows it`s DW in Hausa via Issoudun at 0630-0700 on “15215“; same also at 13-14 and 18-19 — one of the defective ISS transmitters. Not to be confused with Gaweylon Tibetan Radio which is axually shown as 15215.1 via UAE, but at 1200-1230 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 2 at 0500-0508, UR1 via WRMI, `Ukraine: Security Issue`, daily war report, by different YL than usual, this one with an accent.
7730, June 3 at 0500-0507, same for 2 June = Day 99 of war, by fast-talking accented OM. Both good into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U K [non]. 17530, June 3 at 0642, BBCWS in English about Ukraine, S7/S9 via MADAGASCAR, // stronger 13600 via SAO TOME. Nightmiddle summer propagation from Africa is hopping (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Confirmed UT Friday June 3 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 with storm crashes into far-offbeam Maryland SDR, the first SW airing this week.
Also confirmed Friday June 3 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S5/S9 atop Cuban pulse jamming.
Also confirmed Friday June 3 from 1815.3 on IRRS SW via Bulgaria 7290, S5/S7 into NW Ireland SDR, on LSB to avoid USB warble. Also via AM Italia, Villa Estense, on both 918 & 1323 kHz at equal identical sound and levels into nearby Noale SDR; but not on LW 207.
As usual I tuned in by 1755 for what might precede: 1323 & 918 in some talk show; 7290 occupied only by the weak Chinese. 1800 cut to Feature Story News; and 7290 not cut on air till about 1800.85 JIP FSN and now // MWs. 1804 FSN Spotlite. 1805 instead of usual News in Brief from UN, into a kidchorus with a takeoff of “Glory, Glory Hallelujah“ in unknown language. 1806 some other music. 1809 intro the “Top 5 of 1949“. 1810 “You are listening to the Country Jamboree“, then cowboy song. 1815 IRRS ID with PO Box otherwise denied, 1815.3 into WOR until 1845 a show of Irish music.
WOR 2141 also confirmed Friday June 3 at 2030 on 918 & 1323, same good nearby reception as before, and no longer QRM from Romania presumably due to later sunsets.
Next: 0130 UT Saturday on 9395, as above (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Re my log of `Cruising the Decades` on WBCQ, and my comments, Dan apparently forwarded to Brad Savage and this exchange:
“Brad, There was a report about Cruisin The Decades and how it is not listed on your page. Is the show still on? Thanks for any update. Best, Dan“

Subject: Re: radio show question
“Hi Dan! It sure is. We’re actually working on a new website for that show specifically, because the “global” version is now heard on 17 stations across the U.S. and Europe. It’s on shortwave (WRMI, WBCQ, and Channel 292) at various times plus several AM/FM/community stations.
Here in Ohio, the “regular version” of the show is on The Summit at 5pm on Fridays. We also broadcast the “global” edition shared with all the other stations, and that is on at 12mid Saturday nights (technically Sunday morning at 12:01am)
KEEP TUNED and thanks! BRAD — Brad Savage, Program Director, The Summit, WAPS 91.3 FM Akron/Canton, WKTL 90.7 FM Youngstown/Warren, W211BT 90.1 FM Athens; 309 Woolf Ave, Akron OH 44312; 330-761-3098; thesummit.fm rockandrecovery.com the330.net kidjamradio.com “ (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)
** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat June 4 at 0050, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW` which I quickly recognize as repeat of last week; insults to left-wingers. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Finally my first sporadic E FM DX session of the season, June 3 at 1517-1640 UT from Florida et al.; also 2326-2344 UT from Minnesota. And also 10m ham beacon DX from all over at 2205-2248. Researching all this is not finished before I need to dispatch this report, so will have details for next time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** VANUATU. 7890, June 3 at 0630, JBA carrier in bandscan, so I know R. Vanuatu must have reactivated 3945 and its harmonix, and immediately tune to X3 =
11835: song unseems “island music“ past 0636 and none of usual drumming and announcements at this time; weaker than usual S5/S6. Manuel Mêndez, Spain and Ron Howard, CA, also caught it back on.
BTW, Vanuatu has made an aid deal with China, which is spreading its influence among Pacific islands, like already with Solomons; diminishing Australian, US influence. Ron Howard refers us to:
China strengthening ties with Vanuatu https://english.news.cn/20220601/b0054fa85650433bb752cf34f5d2f614/c.html
And DXer Bruce Churchill, Capt., USN, ret., replies: “I hope no one really thinks that China is only interested in promoting benign “cooperation” with Vanuatu (or any of the other 10 Pacific Island nations they are courting). What they are really doing is taking advantage of total neglect of these nations by both the U.S. and Australia – in China’s “36 Stratagems” long-term strategy (Google “36 Stratagems” for more info), #12 is “Seize the Opportunity to Lead Away a Sheep”…in other words, take advantage of (in this case) a power vacuum when it presents itself. China’s long-term plan for the Pacific is a threat to both Australia and the U.S., and for those not steeped in history, think Tarawa, Peleliu, Truk, Kwajalein, Guam, Saipan, et al., that we had to wrest from Japanese control at the cost of many thousands of American lives. “Those who neglect history are doomed to repeat it”, as the familiar saying goes. Bruce“
Remains to be heard if RV will keep going on 11835 rather than a one-shot like the week before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
