Tuesday, December 06 2022

Logs
** CUBA. 6165, Dec 5 at 0730, S8/S9 open carrier, only RHC frequency
still on, where something`s always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Dec 5 at 2227, no signal in English from R. Cairo
into UTwente; something`s always amiss in Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Dec 5 at 0736, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati;
no other 9/kHz TP or TA splits audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re: ``1640 KZLS OK Enid — Slogan to “Freedom 96.9,” nets
to THN/Fox/WW1/CMP/RA//SRN (RI)`` (NRC DX News Dec 13, published Dec
5)

NO, IT ISN`T! Just checking now at 2333 UT December 5, 1640 is still
// 1390 KCRC Enid Sportstalk --- well, almost: 1640 runs about 2
seconds behind 1390; why? 96.9 is separate with far-right talk.

That story was in radioinsight.com so here it is in full:

``KQOB REBRANDS AS FREEDOM 96.9
by Lance Venta November 22, 2022
Freedom 96.9 KQOB
1640 The Eagle KZLS Enid Oklahoma City

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk “The Eagle 96.9” KQOB
Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid rebranded today as “Freedom
96.9“.

KZLS began simulcasting on KQOB at the start of this year after the
96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen
years. The station features a completely syndicated lineup including
Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags,
and Bill O’Reilly. The station is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch
to the lineup as well.

KQOB/KZLS registered a 0.6 share in the October 2022 Nielsen Audio
ratings placing it well behind iHeartMedia’s 1000 KTOK’s 2.0 share,
but ahead of Tyler Media’s 1520 KOKC/95.3 K237GE and its 0.4 share.

Lance Venta is Owner and Publisher of RadioInsight.com. Lance also
advises stations, talent and brands on digital content strategies,
programming integrations, and brand extensions.
Copyright ©2022 RadioInsight / RadioBB Networks``

Lance Venta doesn`t know what he`s talking about, assuming 1640 is //
96.9 whatever it become.

Also here`s a recent log of KZLS as sports, from Terry Krueger in FL
at 0732 UT Nov 30:

``1640 KZLS OK Enid – 11/29 0232 – Fox Sports Radio football babble,
parallel station stream. (TK-FL)`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.017, Dec 5 at 2314, VOT English to N America, VG S9+40
intercepted at UTwente, but with some hum. You never know what part of
the hour will contain regular features. `Feeling Supreme` starts
already at 2314, about health benefits of row ovens ---? What? Oh,
it`s ``row almonds``, mispronouncing raw. They combat bad cholesterol,
until 2320. Music break and 2327 it`s `New Day, New Choices` about gas
powered classic cars vs EVs and how various countries are planning
transitions. 2351 recheck, signing off and now I can hear some CCCCCCI
well under, 2354* before one IS iteration can play, uncovering XJPBS,
std denunciation, which is only S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 15420, Dec 5 at 1628, open carrier S7/9+10; 1629 African
talk and music starts, and accurate 5+1 timesignal at strange time on
half-hour 1630. Listed as BBC in Kinyarwanda/Kirundi M-F at 1630-1700
via Talata, MADAGASCAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Dec 5 at 1625, HIFER beacon PCO, Pine, Colorado,
is JBA vis CODAR swirshes; no K6FRC on 13565 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: 13927 USB, Dec 4 at 1541, ``MARS Radio`` contacting
``Aircraft 02``, latter unheard tho presumably simplex. And what and
where exactly is this MARS Radio? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

They are volunteer MARS stations so the location may change depending
who is on shift. They provide phone patch and other services as per:
http://marsradioglobal.us/
They actually have a remote SDR (they own it) here that I host for
expanded coverage when needed (Don Moman, VE6JY, Lamont, Alberta)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2166 monitoring, Correxion: mixed up two WBCQ
channels. Posted as 5130, should be 6160, fixed:

Also confirmed promptly at 0400 UT Monday November 28 on Area 51
webcast; also WBCQ 6160 -63 Hz = 6159.937, JBA into Missouri SDR; JBA
to VP with ACI de 6165 CUBA, into Maryland SDR averaging -65 Hz =
6159.935. The difference could of course be due to slightly different
receiver calibrations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2167 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
December 4 at 2100 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S8/S9 into nearby
Noale SDR; little QRM, but some storm crashes: major one around Corfu,
minor ones in NW Italy, and SW of Iberia. Nothing on 918 or 207 kHz.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into
Maurice LA SDR.

Not confirmed UT Monday December 5 at 0130 on WRMI 5950, replaced by
VORW from 0100 as now on skedgrid.

Confirmed UT Monday December 5 from 0401.4 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160 minus
63 Hz = 6159.937, S8/S6 into Maryland SDR with storm crashes: only
areas are around Bermuda and Campeche. Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [? missing previous week]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Thanks this week to Chuck Ermatinger for a contribution via PayPal in
US funds, but not necessarily, to woradio at yahoo.com

One may also contribute by MO or check on a US bank to:
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, UT Mon Dec 5 at 0315, WBCQ R. Angela, Concert Hall,
S7/S9 into Maryland SDR and only -1 Hz at first, later drifting to -4;
with `Carmina Burana` in progress for rest of hour. Previewed as music
by Carl Orff, so I knew this favorite of mine had to be primary.
Unfortunately no playlist details published about performance or his
other music in following hour. I happened to be changing from speaker
to headphones just when the intervening announcement was made. By 0448
the noise/signal ratio from storms around Bermuda and/or Campeche had
increased to make this unlistenable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Dec 5 at 00734, JBA carrier presumed R. Vanuatu
third harmonic reactivated after absence several nights; but nothing
audible on 7890.

Lucio Otavio Bobrowiec, Brazil, agrees: ``Hi all, R. Vanuatu back at
0805, 05/12, 11835 kHz good, 7890 kHz poor, male talks.``

[and non]. Gary Pence, TX: ``0702z, No Nigeria, No Mexico 6185;
Vanuatu to KFS remote, S6 on 3945, S6 on 7890; 11835 nil`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7720, Dec 5 at 0732, JBA AM carrier -- no, not 7730
WRMI. Also 2-way in Spanish on USB, coincidence? No broadcaster known
on 7720 and unlikely to be MW harmonic (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated Dec 4
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** CUBA. 13808 & 13672 approx., Dec 3 at 2250, extremely distorted
spurblobs with F# tone, traces of talk or musicmod in FM mode; plus
and minus 68 kHz intervals out of 13740 AM which is S8/9+10 in Spanish
sounding normal, // 13680 which is innocent bytransmitter.
Second-orders also audible much weaker circa 13876, 13604 but not
third-orders. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Dec 4 at 0734, S9+10 of dead air, the SSOB by far,
obviously tonight`s prolonged RHC transmitter, nominally on air only
at 22-06 per Aoki and EiBi as Titán/Quivicán targeting Chile. None
others on 9, 6, 5 or 4 MHz bands. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
Could not help but notice this while checking 11835 for Vanuatu, q.v.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9330, Sun Dec 4 at 0737, S9+10 of Spanish spy numbers
alternating with uteblaaps, and no sign of WBCQ-6/WLCR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Dec 4 at 1542, RHC S9/+10 here but no spurs.
Something`s not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Dec 4 at 1545, RHC is S7/S9 but just barely modulated;
15140, S6/S9 but undermodulated; 11760, S7/S9 and sufficiently
modulated. Since it`s Sunday, recheck at 1610 finds Esperanto on 15140
while 15230 is off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** INDONESIA [non]. 7780, Dec 4 at 0807, JBA carrier presumably during
WRMI`s new relay of VOI in English. We join the chorus asking for an
earlier hour on not the worst frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Dec 4 at 0748, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, altho it`s Sunday usually silent; only other 9/kHz splits
detected are 882 and 1107, likely Canary Islands and Spain, now not
too far into the dayside yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185, Dec 4 at 0738, no signal from XEPPM a.k.a. R
Educación a.k.a. Señal Cultura México. Sure hope it`s temporary lest
it mark the end of an era, Mexico`s last SW station. Manuel Méndez,
Lugo, Spain, reported at 0912 Dec 3: ``MEXICO, 6185, Radio Educación,
not heard 0645-0810 the last two days`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935 USB, Dec 3 at 2241, DJ talking about Indonesia,
relays, S7/S9, only occasional words readable; novelty songs; S7/S9 vs
S8 HNL. 2248 mentions ``Whatever``, so probably R Free Whatever as in
many reports here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,106239.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAIPAN [and non]. 9900, Dec 4 at 1613, two signals beating on
slightly different frequencies, S6/S8 of dead air or JBM. RFA in
Mandarin scheduled this hour only on Sat & Sun, with CNR1 jamming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sun Dec 4 at 0100-0200, `Encore` from
Radio Tumbril via WRMI - excellent hour of classical music. I always
listen tho don`t often log-report it. Brice Avery presents a wide
variety, from the familiar to the unfamiliar -- to me, as presented on
the Playlists, where you may select between the current one and the
last/next one: https://www.tumbril.co.uk/playlist-2
Other times on WRMI: UT Friday 0200 on 5850; UT Monday 0300 on 5950;
Tuesday 1300 on 15770; also on Ch 292, Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003, Sat Dec 4 at 2259-2356*, English from
VOT; today I am not distracted by Spainglish and OETA blows off
Oklahoma News Report for continuing pledge drive, so I listen to
entire hour and try to make notes vs the horrible heavy accents of the
speakers. I`m listening via UTwente on the way to NAm where reception
is always much better with fewer hops, S9+30, and VG mod except for
some hum and lo-fi mics; or some phoned in remotedly?

2259 IS; 2300 5+1 timesignal, s/on with full English transmission
schedule in usual jumbled order; 2301 news for 3 December; 2305.5
TRT/VOTuerkiye ``always with you 24 hours`` liner promo which appears
over & over with slight variations --- except when THEY ARE NOT EVEN
ON THE AIR! 2309, Turkish music break and first feature title sounds
like ``Firsts of Anatolia``, but apparently trying to say Forests
since it is about how walking in a forest or in greenery is good for
health as some scientist from Japan asserts, i.e. stress relief. About
Turkey`s largest long?-coast forest of beech and oak trees, then
calling it a mangrove, name and location never clear but something
like Inapa? on Black Sea Coast? Also good place for bird-watching and
seeing some endangered species.

*2311 CCCCCCI starts from E Turkistan, std denunciation; remains
audible but well below TRT. Segment over at 2314, Turkish song. 2318 I
check it on a Missouri SDR: S7/S9 with splash from 5950 WRMI. 2321
``with you`` liner, next segment intro sounds like ``Whipping Pile``
at first, then ``Gripping Files``??? about how to sleep soundly,
avoiding blue light, ideal temp 20 degrees, etc. 2327 song. 2330
``always by your side``, song; 2335 another ``always``; 2336
``Tuerkiye`s Geomat?? Products``? about rose oil from a certain place
sounding like Sparta, how it is harvested, refined and used in
cosmetix, desserts. 2338 music; 2342 ``with you``, song; 2347
multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2349 s/off with full English sked again;
2351 IS to 2355.6* uncovering Xinjiang PBS.

The Mighty KBC via Nauen cuts on at *0000 but suffers a lot more QRM
from that than TRT did. KBC is of course only one-quarter as Mighty as
TRT, 125 vs 500 kW and maybe too close to UTwente for most solid
one-hop skip, 408 km = 254 miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 17780.017, Dec 4 at 1855, surprised to hear `GSTQ` = God
Save the Quing, must be some regal event on BBC ASCENSION to W Africa
from 1700; S7/S9, then echoey announcement from a venue, more music,
slightly off-frequency as have recalibrated R75 vs WWV; but chopped
off air midtalk at 1859.6; I was wondering if ToH news would
pre-empted for World Cup? nonsense? Amazing how major broadcasters
dispense with any finesse, no ``this frequency is now closing: please
retune to ---`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13927 USB, Dec 4 at 1541, ``MARS Radio`` contacting
``Aircraft 02``, latter unheard tho presumably simplex. And what and
where exactly is this MARS Radio? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28250+ CW, Dec 4 at 1851, E E E E E DE KA3JOE/B CN
WI5V does not agree on exact frequency:
``28.2495 KA3JOE I BENSALEM, PENNSYLVANIA # 10W, DIPOLE relocated
formally W3ATV 28 Aug 10.`` Nor does QRZ.com!

``KA3JOE USA flag USA
Joseph W Ciesielski, 1176 Poquessing Avenue, Bensalem, PA 19020 USA

WELCOME TO THE KA3JOE BEACON !! Thanks for tuning in! The KA3JOE
beacon operates continuously on a frequency of 28.248.7 Mhz, at a
power level of 5 watts. The transmitter is an HTX-10 fed into a half
wave vertical at a height of 10 meters. I would perfer a good, old
fashioned, tree killing, non-electronic QSL, SASE to my QRZ address,
but I will also respond with an email promptly. It's more fun to
receive QSL Cards in the regular mail.

I have been interested in radio since I was 12 years old. Like many, I
started out on CB radio but got bored of that scene quickly. I then
discovered cars, girls, work, etc. and got side-tracked. Finally,
getting licensed at the age of 36 I rekindled my interest in radio and
have been playing with it ever since. Thanks again for tuning in to
the KA3JOE 10 METER BEACON @ 28.248.7 MHZ. Please QSL, SASE to my QRZ
address, Thank You & 73 Joe`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2167 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
December 3 starting at 2036 UT on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, steady S9+20 by
groundwave into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday December 4 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, VG S9/+10
with no noise into Maurice LA SDR, while the other one in LA is

** U S A. 9955, Dec 4 at 1527, WRMI-3 is OFF. It was also off after
1530 Friday instead of WORLD OF RADIO. Skedgrid dated Dec 1 now shows
it off at 1500-2200, except Sat & Sun extended 1500-1700 - but this
*is* Sunday. As usual, contradicts the System B program skedgrid below
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835 & 7890, Dec 4 at 0735, still no signals from R.
Vanuatu harmonix, so 3945 is probably also off or elsewhere. Gary
Pence reported Dec 3: ``Glenn, I detected no Vanuatu on 3945 plus
harmonics at 0734z``; Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, also reported at
0912 UT Dec 3: ``VANUATU, 11835, not heard 0700-0900 last two days``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Dec 3 at 1458, I`ve alarmed myself to
be up in time for LRA36: not on yet at tune-in via Argentine remote,
but cuts on at *1501 during song; 1503.5 standard canned announcement
tantamount to sign-on with staff names, ``Nacional, la radio pública``..
1504 themesong as I struggle to understand the lyrix but only part of
them; 1508 scripted reading unusually by a M voice; 1511 song; 1514
``Radio Arcángel San Gabriel`` ID, omitting ``Nacional`` but I guess
that be insignificant? Then live YLs greeting, headed by Maria
Eugenia, the 33rd program of the season. From now on, much of the talk
is about the ``Mundial``, as the SS insist on calling the World Cup.
Mundial is supposed to be an adjective, not a noun, and could apply to
countless events. Can you imagine us in English calling it ``the
World`` or ``the Worldwide`` without the ``Cup``?? MEGO but I attempt
to keep listening.

Remember, this is a playback from Wed. Temp as 1 degree, wind chill
minus 8, winds out of west at 37 kph. Sunrise at 2:30, penumbra.
1518.5 contact info; mentions México apparently as soccer opponent;
1523 song; 1525 ID, greetings to San Lorenzo; this is yerba maté day,
extolling the healthy chemical ingredients of their national tea,
consumed in 95% of Arg. homes; 1534 brief series of V in Morse, promo?
music; 1539 ID and Día del Teatro, as first one was founded in 1783,
and now there are over 300 in Buenos Aires; including cines? 1547
song, 1550 Esperanza Audaz ID; 1552 onward, long talk with M voice in
studio, all about Mundial, MEGO again. 1638 chanting and clapping,
song; 1640 staff list tantamount to sign-off, ``la radio hecha por
mujeres``, ``Nacional, nos une`` and off at 1641*. Gary Pence in TX
and someone in London UK were also on it via same remote (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9664.343 variable, Dec 3 at 0748, RVM music S4/S7 and
wobbling audibly as I try to measure it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5040, Dec 3 at 0656, JBA carrier, at first thought
Vanuatu, and another one at 0658 on 5020 which would be Solomons. I`m
listening carefully to 5040 for it to cut off circa 0659 like Vanuatu,
q.v., but not until 0700:49*!

10080, Dec 3 at 0656 already, RHC in English! here, S9/+10 but
undermodulated, distorted, while there is nothing but a JBA carrier on
what would be the fundamental 5040. Nothing on 11670 like OC late last
night. Not listening continuously to 10080 but at 0702 it`s off, while
10050 is now on, S9 but JBM -- and now there is a JBA carrier on 5025,
its fundamental. The fact that 10080 changed to 10050 while JBA
carriers changed from 5040 to 5025 confirms that these are not
Vanuatu, at least not tonight.

I cannot emphasize strongly enough how extraordinary are these 5/10
MHz Cuban harmonix, not like ``normal`` ones which are always much
weaker on the multiple than the original, unless unusual propagation
factors intercede. This demonstrates that the doubles are not mere
vestiges but the transmitter is axually tuned, deliberately or
incompetently, to the second harmonix. Programming on 10050 presumably
R. Rebelde, but not confirmed as S9 but JBM, still at 0743 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Dec 3 at 0754, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati
and no other 9/kHz split TP or TA carriers audible in quick bandscan
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. Posted to the WOR iog Dec 3 at 0606:

[WOR] 5995 Radio Mali reactivated --- Mali is back, tnx for tip. Via
Canary SDR, tune in at 0555 already on in Bambara? talk, 0557 music.
2022 WRTH nominal opening is 0555. VG S9 signal and modulation. 0600
song continues, no news on hour. 0602 French ID Radio Mali, cock
crowings, back to non-French. 0605 more nice music. Usually well
audible at this time direct, not yet checked. Should also be good for
weekly news in English Saturday from 1850 or 1855. Glenn. Viz.:

``Sent: Saturday, December 3, 2022, 01:43:49 AM GMT+1
Radio Mali, luego de semanas fuera del aire, fue reportada nuevamente
en la frecuencia de 5995 kHz. en francés hoy 2/22 de diciembre a las
22:00 UTC por mi amigo Antônio Ribeiro da Motta en São Luiz do
Paraitinga SP Brasil. El video a continuación es de una transmisión en
bambara a las 2300 UTC del 02 de diciembre/22
https://youtu.be/9jwlBBI3xLY

Sérgio Dória Partamian
Mairiporã -SP - Brasil``

Via Canary some QRM splash from 6005 BBC English very strong,
scheduled 05-06 UT only via Ascension per Aoki, Vatican per EiBi and
HFCC. At 0655 I check 5995 direct: S9/+10 with 6000 Cuba already off.
From the California coast, Ron Howard reports hearing only ``KOREA
SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, Noted as early as 0601 UT, with the
signature theme sound of foghorn, on 5995 kHz``. From Dec 5 that may
shift to 5990 or 6000. Other reports:

``Via the NA5B SDR at Washington, just before 0800 UTC today, I heard
Arabic music on 5995. Mali reactivated. Checked back at 5995 and Mali
was off, matching listed 0800 sign-off. Harold Sellers, Vernon, BC``

``Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, Log in Friol, NW of Spain: MALI, 9635,
Radio Mali, Bamako, 1714-1721, 03-12, African songs, Vernacular,
comments. 35433``.

At 1850 Sat Dec 3 I`m back on the Fuerteventura, Canarias SDR at 5995.
Splash from music on 6000 requires LSB tuning, S3/S5: that would be
NHK Japanese via France at 17-19. 5995 seems in French but by 1852 I
recognize some English despite M`s heavy accent, ``Two thousand
twenty-one``. CCI from music, self-imposed? makes it even worse.
Alternates with W voice, just as unreadably accented. 1903 mentions
``next week``, apparently closing, music, French and more music with
talk CCI, so that must be from Echo of Hope, S Korea running long
hours but now a darkpath; or maybe the 24h? Studio Denakker in Holland
per EiBi. NONE of these 5995s are in HFCC, not even Mali. Manuel
Méndez, Spain, says it was `English Magazine` from 1851 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 3 at 0656, no signal from VON. Gary Pence
agrees, none either at 0734 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2167 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday December 3 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, only, VG S9+20/10 direct.

Also confirmed UT Saturday December 3 at 0500 on WBCQ R. Angela, 5130
minus 13 Hz = 5129.987, S6 into Maryland SDR, so only fair. The same
degradation for preceding 0330 `Greek Music Refuge` and 0400 `FTIOM`.

Also confirmed Saturday December 3 at 1700 on WRN N America webcast.

** U S A. (6160-), UT Sat Dec 3 at 0100, monitoring WBCQ Area 51
webcast for `AAAWWW`: starts with a few seconds of the `Twilight Zone`
theme -- can that be accidental? before morphing into `William Tell
Overture`. Usual chat between AW & AW. He`s demonstrating the cough
button at 0121 but doesn`t realize he`s left it on, so we can barely
hear him for the next six minutes, picked up by her mic, altho he said
the c.b. was supposed to mute all the mics in studio. At last, her
voice is primary! At one point they can`t resist insulting all
Democrats as Communists trying to do away with the Constitution and
Freedom --- despite the fact that all Retrumplicans are Fascists
trying to accomplish exactly that!!! Angela, a Canadian, makes the
most extreme remarx, and Allan tries to moderate them slightly. 0137
finally datestamp as 2 of Dec YOOLF 2022. 0148 reading some Free Radio
Weekly items just published. 0155 says WBCQ are looking to hire
another engineer, as one was electrocuted and another is recovering
from illness. Hard to qualify, as must know how to work on high
power/high voltage SW transmitters (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 3 at 0656, no signal here from R. Vanuatu;
currently on 5040 instead? JBA carrier there but think it`s exciter
instead from CUBA, q.v. At 0701 nothing from RV harmonix either on
7890, 11835. Gary Pence, KM5X, agrees Dec 3 checking remotes: ``Glenn,
I detected no Vanuatu on 3945 plus harmonics at 0734z.`` Dec 3 at
0912, Manuel Méndez says, ``VANUATU, 11835, not heard 0700-0900 last
two days`` and Gary Pence agrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
