** CUBA. 6140, Oct 6 at 0642, JBA carrier, presumed leapfrog mixing
product of RHC 6060 over 6100 another 40 kHz beyond, as possible when
both those be on, even tho 6100 be S9/+10 of dead air, and 6060
S9+10/20 of undermodulated English, none others. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``Opinion - Editorial: As Cubans take to the streets to protest, where
are Díaz-Canel and Raúl Castro? To crack down on the population now,
when international aid is being sought to solve their problems, would
be an inexcusable contradiction in the public's eyes.
DDC Madrid 03 Oct 2022 - 15:04 CEST

Cubans are once again taking to the streets to protest and make
demands of the Government, as their living conditions have
deteriorated significantly in recent days, and this is not because of
the hurricane that recently affected the western provinces.

All of Cuba is languishing without electricity and, therefore, in a
dire state in terms of access to food and hospital care, to cite just
two of the main deficiencies being suffered. Meanwhile, where is
Miguel Díaz-Canel? Where is Raúl Castro?`` ...

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Oct 6 at 0648, S9+10/20, Spanish about weather and
power outages, presumed R. Rebelde reactivated rather than RHC, which
briefly occupied 5025 in a mixup with 5040 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2159)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Oct 6 at 0632, JBA carrier presumed
R. Kiribati; only other 9/kHz carriers in bottom half are 774 and 684,
likely Spain remnants. Distance between Sevilla and Xmas I is 14736 km
= 9157 stmi = 7957 nmi, tho we are hardly at the midpoint which would
be circa Churchill, Manitoba. Simultaneous TA/TP demonstrates what
great DX range MW can have; if only obstructive AM would be abolished
in N America. Gary Pence was getting 846 weakly into Hawaii SDR at
0503 today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2159)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, Oct 6 at 1501, V of Martyrs/Korea, already
YL in presumed Dhivehi instead of English, S9+10/20, the SSOB except
for Cuba and non on 11760, 11860, 11930, and of course blasting 12160
WWCR which just came up from 7490. However, 11825 is only S6/S8, the
admittedly Kununurra site for VOMK`s simulBurmese, belying my theory
that so is 11620. More about Maldives:

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 6 at 0644, no signal from VON. Has anyone heard
them in past week? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2159)

** U S A. 420 MCW kHz, Oct 6 at 0631 UT, PK, 25 watt ND beacon at
Olathe / Herbb KS. JBA vs local HNL, sloping off this hi beyond 400
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2158 monitoring: confirmed UT
Thursday October 8 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+20 into Maryland SDR. Not

** U S A. 9955, 9455, 9395, 5950, Oct 6 at 0650, WRMI active on these
four only; and once again 9455 is splattering downward at least to
9415. At 1456, 9955 is S7/S8 quite undermodulated, and 9395, 9455 are
not sufficiently mod either. Next up: 5800, from Jeff White at 1442:

``Dear Friends, Colleagues and Clients of WRMI: I am happy to report
that our frequency of 5800 kHz is operational once again. It will come
back on the air at its regular airtime today [22-04 UT], and possibly
earlier. So now we have five frequencies operating again: 5800, 5950,
9395, 9455 and 9955 kHz. We continue to work on getting the other
frequencies back up. Thank you for all of your messages of support as
we make repairs from the damage caused by Hurricane Ian. Jeff White,
General Manager`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2159)

** U S A. 9330v, Oct 6 at 0651, WBCQ with country song, strange for
WLCR until listening to the repeating lyrix: ``There`s a dome over us;
There was no Big Bang; Space is a farce; No astronauts in space``,
i.e. the wacko dogma of World`s Last Chance Radio. 0655 cut to
menacing theme and British accent, that the End Is Near (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, Thu Oct 6 at 0640, WWCR-4 is off again unlike last
night, a mistake then? Also deprives us of leapfrog over 5935 to 5980
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 6 at 0645, no RV, nor any carrier on former
harmonix 7890, 7932, 8620, 11835. Barely awake at 0701, still no
11835. There they go again. Gary Pence agrees nothing from them this
date (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2159)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Oct 5 from 1445 to 1540, NO signals
from LRA36 this Wednesday into Argentine, Brazilian, Uruguayan
remotes, tho the best Argie is still offline. Perhaps will make good
on Friday Oct 7 as RNASG has done before when missing Wed, and/or the
usual Saturday repeat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5800, Oct 5 at 0630, pulse jamming against nothing, obviously
provoked by additional R. República scheduled 3 nights a week via WRMI
itself at 03-04, even tho impossible now until that transmitter`s
antenna be repaired! I warned that this would lead to more collateral
damage against other programming too on 5800. Until now Cuban jamming
has attacked only 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 5 at 0624, RHC English, S9/+10 but JBM; 6060 also
S9/+10, sufficient modulation but some hum and distortion. No other
frequencies on now. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 5 at 2206. R. Cairo, S9+25 into UTwente with
extremely distorted English. Something`s always abysmal at Abis (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Oct 5 at 0621 UT, no signal here from R.
Kiribati, but Gary Pence, KM5X, reports Oct 5, presumably via Hawai`i
remote or maybe KFS: ``I didn`t check 846 until 0428z and they were on
already. 73, Gary``. And Ron Howard: ``Recently observed while
listening at Asilomar State Beach, Calif.: R. Kiribati (846), anomaly
this week? Not on the air Oct 3 (Monday), when they normally would be
broadcasting; heard Oct 4 as usual; on Wednesday (Oct 5) they were
heard on the air from 0600+ UT, a day that would normally be off the
air.`` So perhaps it go and come on an irregular basis, even within a
single night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 5 at 0631, no signal from VON direct. At 1712
and later, no signal into Canary SDR, except JBA presumed Tibet not
off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Wed Oct 5 at 2209, token English from REE features
interview about Tim Burton`s ``Labyrinth`` opening in Madrid. More
about it here, for one sesquiminute:

https://www.usatoday.com/videos/entertainment/2022/09/29/dare-you-enter-tim-burtons-labyrinth/10459037002/
11940 at S9/+18 is far better than 15520 or 17855 into Maryland SDR,
even tho it`s for S America, as autumnal conditions prevail. Expect in
B-22 will resume 9690 for N America, better than 17855 in our
evenings, worse in mornings and daytime. For such a multi-hour span
they should use at least two bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.002, Oct 5 at 2207, VOT English suceeds today, S9+50
into UTwente, undermodulated but sufficient if you turn it up.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Cuts off at 2256.5* after
first extra ID in German during IS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2158 monitoring: ``a short list due
to Hurricane Ian. From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada,
the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna:
random long wires in the trees. Dear Glenn: World of Radio,
monitoring and confirming the latest for #2158, 9395 and 5950 kHz only
heard until the antenna farm can be fixed up. Hope to hear soon 5850
kHz, 1030 UT. Canadian Thanksgiving Day this weekend, Oct 10, 2022,
happy turkey day to the Canadians. WRMI:

5950, static QRN, 0030, 0042, 0055 (55433), (55434), 0059, Oct 3 UT
2022 [Mon]
9395, lots of fading noticed, 0030, 0044, 0059 (45433), 0059, Oct 4 UT
2022 [Tue]
9395, QRN, 2330, jingle, 2345, 2358 S7 signal, 2358, Oct 4 UTC 2022
[Tue] (Lemke, Richard -AB) 73’s, Richard``

Confirmed Tuesday October 4 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+22 into Maryland
SDR; the preceding `Midnight Cry` not quite finished with contact info
when cut off at 2329.5 for ID.

Also confirmed Wednesday October 5 at 2100+ on WBCQ 7489.9v, just
barely on S4 signal direct = noise level. Straining, I could not copy
program number or date, but ``Korea, Mexico`` in the billboard, which
match this edition. Next:

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S [probably still off]

** U S A. At 1957 UT Oct 5, Jeff White of WRMI notified me: ``Hi
everyone. I am very happy to say that we got 9955 kHz back on the air
at 1900 UT today. I had expected it to happen tomorrow, but we were
fortunate to have some fast progress today. It will remain on the air
24 hours per day until further notice. We continue to work on the
other frequencies. We have four on the air now: 5950, 9395, 9455 and
9955 kHz -- all of them on 24 hours per day. Jeff``.

9955 confirmed at 2238 Oct 5 amid `Wavescan` about R. Dunedin, NZ,
S9/+10 into Maryland SDR, well atop jamming. See also CUBA above,
jamming added to 5800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5980, Oct 5 at 0626 as I tune downband, leapfrog mixing
product at S8/S9 of TOMBS and University Network, so I know WWCR must
be running both 5890 and 5935, and so they are, both blasting in.

The transmitter sked on website expired Sept 30 but obviously still on
the air; there may have been some seasonal QSY time adjustments.
Program skeds not updated either, still for Sept 1 claiming that
WWCR-4, 5890 operates overnight UT Sat & Sun only, ``OFF AIR`` 05-12
UT M-F, but this is Wednesday! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1550, Oct 5 at 2058 UT and several previous chex, I have
been unable to detect KKLE, Winfield KS, which NRC DX News reported:
``550 KKLE KS Winfield – Silent Aug, 2; back on the air Sept. 20 at
2:30 p.m. Central time.`` It`s U1 250/52 watts, sibling station to
KLEY 1130 Wellington KS, in fact with the same Wellington address, but
news/talk. KLEY has continued active 24h with AC rock format, licensed
as U1 250/1 watt but obviously day power at night. Higher in band
means KKLE weaker here than KLEY but not that much difference on
groundwave at similar distance. If really active, KKLE should also be
250 watts at night? KKLE may be playing games with FCC, like many
stations, firing up briefly to avoid losing license, then off again.
But I don`t recall hearing it before August 2 either (Glenn Hauser,
Enid OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 5 at 0631, weak signal no doubt RV, now without
ACI from either side. Wish they were still switching to 11835 at 0600,
as 0700+ is too late for me to hear their best signal (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

Hauser
DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated Oct 4
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** CUBA. 9955, 9560-9570, Oct 4 at 0626, jamming against nothings;
also 7435, 7335 and more so 6030, Oct 4 at 0630. Electrical fluid is
scarce, but first things first! At 0632, NO broadcasts on 5025, 5040,
6000, 6060, 6100, 6165 nor of course any leapfrog mixing products.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Oct 4 at 1447, RHC is back, S9+10 and no spurs; also
11760 S8/S9; 15140 S9 but undermodulated, suptorted; 15230 S9 just
barely modulated; at 1453, 9710, S4/S7 undermodulated. If sites remain
same as in EiBi & Aoki, these account for all three: 9710 Bejucal,
15230 Quivicán, in between, all Bauta (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 4 at 2147, R. Cairo, English extremely
distorted at S9+35 into UTwente. Doubly incredible: that they can`t or
won`t fix it; and yet don`t just leave the transmitter off, which is
doing far more harm than good this way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Oct 4 at 0634, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati.
Nothing else on 9/kHz splits, any lingering TAs propped out. Gary
Pence, KM5X, reports: ``Hi Glenn, I checked 846 at 0445z, not on yet;
checked again 0525z, it`s on now. At NH6XO`` [Hawai`i remote] (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7255-, Oct 4 at 0629, no signal direct from VON. At
1735, no signal into Spain SDR, just JBA on-frequency carrier from
Tibet. 1819 not even that, nothing at all except storm noise over
northern Algeria (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, Oct 4 at 1445, PN, 25-watt ND beacon at
PoNca City, reactivated, as my loudest near-local signal, moreso even
than 341 EI, EnId. PN was first noted OFF as of August 23. It`s had
similar outages before, always coming back, so far (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 15520, Oct 4 at 2030, REE manages to modulate the ME
transmitter for the fourth day in a row, stupid ballgame provoking
irrational enthusiasm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Oct 4 at 2201, still no signal into UTwente other
than JBA China. Cuts on at *2208, JIP news, with horrible squeal,
autonotch not helping much, but bandwidth too narrow at 2.61 kHz
escapes it, but not also some hum. I shall not listen any further.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE. `Ukraine: Security Issue` notes from web if not via WRMI:

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_30_09_22.mp3
For 30 Sept, including: shelling casualties in Zap region convoy at
checkpoint. 52 buses burned down. R hit city with tornado? systems.
Intel director estimates very hi possibility of R using tactical nuxe
along frontline. U needs more defensive weapons. Hi levels of
intimidation from R next few weeks should speed up delivery of
weapons to U. And blowing up pipeline, blackmailing Eu to raise
stakes. Min of Defense on U giving nuxe to R years ago. Brit official
visited U secretly. U encircling R troops near Lyman. R spent $ 100K on
anti-U propaganda, more than 50 fake websites. Mark Hamill of Star
Wars became ambassador to raise funds.

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_01_10_22.mp3
For 1 October, including: civilian convoy of cars in Kharkiv region,
20 people killed. Humanitarian convoy in Zap. region also hit, 30
killed. U submitted application for accelerated accession to NATO,
signed by Pres Z. Peace restored only by expelling occupiers. U leads
in negotiation efforts. Impossible with this R pres, need another one.
Joining NATO might not take place till after war. Hope application
help speed up arms delivery. As soon as R loses, all hesitant
countries will be first to vote for U to join NATO. Approx. 5500 R
servicemen surrounded somewhere. Pres P will not gain anything,
according to American experts, by nuclear attack. Would be his last
argument, fatal for aggressor. U would have right to attack across all
of Russia if nuxe used. P wants to freeze U in winter by cutting off
gas. Occupiers detained head of Zap NPP, took him somewhere, fate
unknown. RusAtom should release the director-general immediately. Pres
Z included among favorites for Nobel Peace Prize, among bookies.
Another is David Attenborough, TBA Oct 7 in Oslo. Art collexions to
foreign museums.

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_02_10_22.mp3
For 2 October, including: City of Lyman liberated. P`s troops
retreating. 9 C&E European countries back U sovereignty, U and Georgia
should become members of NATO eventually. Appeal to join already
processed. Call on NATO for active deterrence of R. U conducting
negotiations on join NATO since May after Sweden and Finland, to
forestall a future R retry. Safety zone around Zap NPP discussed. R
told IAEA that Dir-Gen of Zap NPP temporarily detained. Was kidnapped
for refusing to follow orders. In Kherson region, R abducted married
couple Sept 25, whereabouts unknown, for refusing to vote in pseudo
referendum. 412 U kids died from invasion, more than 784 injured,
figures are not final and keep growing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 293 MCW kHz, Oct 4 at 0648 UT, FBY, my most reliable
2nd-adjacent-state LW beacon, FairBurY, Nebraska, mixing with another
starting with T-, but too much overlap QRM, i.e. TOR, TORrington,
Wyoming, which I have also heard before. Another 293, UI, qUIncy,
Illinois, not reheard lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2158 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday October 4 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, reactivated a few hours ago,
S9+10 into Maryland SDR, some rapid clicking QRM. At 0046 check
direct, also S9+10 somewhat undermodulated.

Confirmed Tuesday October 4 at 2230 on webcast of WRMI but 9955 still
not back on air. At least 9395 is again in use, next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

** U S A. 5950, Oct 4 at 1455, no signal direct from WRMI-8, but
shortly confirmed on, via Georgia SDR. 9395, WRMI-6, at 1455, S3/S5
direct with BS, the only two back on so far. 9395 is dispensable 03-22
UT when nothing but BS or SMTV, variety programming 22-03.

From FB circa 19 UT Oct 4: ``It's been very slow-going in the antenna
field today. Trucks are getting stuck in the mud, and we have to buy
special tires to get them back into the field. We will probably not
have any more frequencies back on the air today (Tuesday), but
hopefully by tomorrow. 5950 and 9395 are still on 24 hours, and our
Internet stream as well. Several of the programs on WRMI have done
interviews with us about the situation, and we appreciate them helping
to let the audience know what's going on. Today we did interviews in
English and Spanish for RAE Argentina to the world, and in English for
Radio Slovakia International. Thanks to our hard-working staff,
including Pat Travers, Don Frish and Scott Marcy who have been working
in the field today`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 4 at 0628, RV is S5/S7, strange-sounding voices
like in a cartoon, distorted. Ivo Ivanov and Gary Pence confirm usual
switch at 0659 to 3945/7890/11835 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 28430 USB, Oct 4 at 2034, YY8HBO calling CQ10 in

but definitely ``Yanqui-yanqui``. QRZ.com:

** CUBA. 15230, Oct 3 at 1442, S7/S9 JBM in Spanish, only RHC
frequency found, no 15140, 13700, 11760, nor anywhere else on 9, 11,
13, 15 MHz bands. About a week after Ian, still little power, or more
serious SW site damage? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 3 at 2151, R. Cairo, S9+45 into UTwente,
English talk somewhat readable if you put up with extreme distortion
and suppressed modulation, hum. 2153 into horrible sounding music
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 17790 & 17530, Oct 3 at 0619, JBA carriers still
detectable direct on 16m in nightmiddle, Only Signals On Band, Talata
relays of AWR and BBC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620 at 1500-1530, VOM,K via secret site, I not
check today, but another TDOA Oct 3 animated from Roger Thauer
;-)

seems to surround Kununurra, Australia but hardly precise. Gary Pence
has been comparing signals via various SDRs and antenna headings
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7255-, Oct 3 at 0620, VON with S9+10 of dead air
direct. 7255-, Oct 3 at 1728 into Canary SDR, never any VON, but weak
Tibet, nothing but Chinese music including past 1800. A few syllables
at 1804, music continues to 1805* as sked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 15520, Oct 3 at 1638, REE manages to modulate the ME
transmitter for the third day in a row, in Arabic, JBA into Maryland
SDR with degraded propagation but S6/S8 into Kuwait. WWV at 1500:

``Geophysical Alert Message
Solar-terrestrial indices for 02 October follow.
Solar flux 154 and estimated planetary A-index 12.
The estimated planetary K-index at 1500 UTC on 03 October was 4.

Space weather for the past 24 hours has been strong.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.
Radio blackouts reaching the R3 level occurred.

Space weather for the next 24 hours is predicted to be moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level are likely.
Radio blackouts reaching the R2 level are expected``

Token English at 2200 Monday Oct 13: into Maryland SDR, 11940 for SAm
is best, S9+10; somewhat less and about the same, 17855 for NAm, 15520
for ME. 11670 for Af also sufficient if none of the others were
available. 2217 about bluesman Watermelon Slim and how he got his
nickname; with blues aficionado Justin Coe, natch (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Oct 3 at 2225, ``The Healing Screen[?]`` is
subtitle of `Feeling Supreme` per outro at 2228. It was about what to
eat to deal with stress. With horrible squeal, some hum, S9+45 into
UTwente. It was *not* on when first checked at 2200, just weak China
with timesignal at 9830.003. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.
Meanwhile I had been listening to SPAIN, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 341 MCW kHz, Oct 3 at 0649 UT, EI, NDB at Woodring AP, EnId
OK, still on; JBA under is DNI, Denison TX - not now nor lately do I
detect the other nearby 341, OIN, Oberlin KS. Wonder if it be off? RNA
Signals List at rxx.classaxe.com says: ``Last Logged 2022-08-14; Don
T. noted off air September 10, 2022``. Before that, the 25-watter was
heard as far away as BC, QC, NS, FINland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2158 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
October 2 from 2000.5 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, Villa
Estense, Italy, S9+5/15 into nearby Noale SDR, but with heavy fast SAH
from some understation, can`t discern the language. Not on 918 but
something else weak; 207 nothing but noise.

Confirmed UT Monday October 3 at 0030 on WRMI 5950, new time
fortunately on the only transmitter as yet reactivated, S9+10/20 to
Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 3 starting late at 0322 on WBCQ Area
51, 6159.937, S9 into Maryland SDR. Johnny Lightning seemed to finish
by 0301, but RNI ID and more. ``Seems a lot like Xmas`` tune, and talk
segment, anti-Trump? But attributed to iHeart Radio, until 0322 WOR
playing until 0351, followed by unrecognizable stuff, maybe fragment
of HRI which was supposed to be at 0330, but not a new one produced
every week, so expendable?

Looking up something else on Aoki currently dated Sept 29, I am
astounded to see an entry for WOR, et al.:
7265 0900-1100 D Hamburger Lokalradio Ger Goehren 7
7265 1200-1300 D Hamburger Lokalradio Ger Goehren 1
7265 1130-1200 D World of Radio Eng Goehren 1

That`s news to me! Consulting the archive of WOR schedule changes at
http://www.angelfire.com/ok/worldofradio ---
2019: As of October 26, Hamburger Lokalradio SW suspended due to
serious illness and then death, of Chief Editor Michael Kittner.
2016: From December, Hamburger Lokalradio added Sunday 1130 on
9485-CUSB.

Then I search Aoki on World of Radio and find 16 other entries, some
of them correct for WRMI when active, some showing winter instead of
summer timings, and one more for defunct HLR:

9485 0900-1000 D Hamburger Lokalradio Eng Goehren 1
9485 1000-1100 D Hamburger Lokalradio Ger Goehren 1
9485 1431-1500 D Hamburger Lokalradio Spa Goehren 1
9485 1030-1100 D World of Radio Eng Goehren 1
Don`t you believe it!

** U S A. 5950, Oct 3 at 1448, JBA carrier from presumed WRMI,
inadequate in the daytime but glad to have something back on. On FB
circa 14 UT Oct 3:

``Restoration efforts continue today at WRMI. Engineers were trying to
fix the transmission lines for transmitter 5 (9455 kHz) this morning,
but the ground is very wet, muddy and swampy, and two trucks have
become stuck in the swamp. So they are going to try to get the
transmission lines fixed for transmitter 6 (9395 kHz) next. So far we
still have only 5950 kHz on the air, and it's on 24 hours per day. Our
Internet stream with the 9955 kHz programming is also operational
(www.wrmi.net).

These photos will give you an idea what we are dealing with as many of
these poles that carry the transmission lines out to the antennas are
seriously leaning or down altogether. They have to be put back up and
reinforced so that the transmission lines are off the ground
again.``

Direct from Jeff White at 2046 UT Oct 3: ``9395 kHz Back on the Air

Dear Friends and Clients: We got another frequency back on the air
today. At 1945 UT we were able to put Transmitter 6 (9395 kHz) back on
the air. The process of repairing the transmission lines in the
antenna field is going rather slowly due to the extreme muddy and
swampy environment. But our crew continues to work in these conditions
to get everything back on the air. We hope to get 9455 kHz back on
tomorrow if all goes well, and then we'll work on others. We'll keep
you advised. Jeff

** VANUATU [and non]. 7260, Oct 3 at 0621, JBA R. Vanuatu, ACI from
7265 VOA São Tomé, i.e. French 0530-0630 M-F only; none from 7255-
Nigeria dead air. Ron Howard was getting quite a good signal after
0600 on 11835 = 3 x 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9390-9395-9400, Oct 3 at 1446, DRM noise, S3/S4.
Certainly not WRMI, the only thing listed on 9395 24 hours, in Aoki,
EiBi, HFCC; and no N nearby either in HFCC. Guess maybe it`s China or
DV Russia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
