** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, Nov 21 at 0257 WRMI with VP music, 0259 chirping, no NA, no Radio Tirana IS, 0259.5 ``Everglades`` ID. I was expecting the second RT relay of the day to be at 0230, as on the WRMI *frequency* schedule for 9395; but on the *program* schedule below, System G is shown with Oldies at 9:30 pm ET on 9395 (if also applying from the line above for RAE at 9:00 pm). R Tirana remains displayed on System H 9395 at 0130 UT Mon/Tue/Wed/Fri/Sat, bumped by `This is a Music Show` on UT Thu at 0130-0230. I need to monitor other days whether RT (or its own music fill) really be on at 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 5960.0, Nov 20 at 2333, VOT English to North America is axually on today, music but VP, undermodulated; and furthermore, off by 2355 recheck instead of bleibing for German, audiblizing the 5960- JBA carrier from East Turkistan, land of Uyghur brainwashing by the ChiCom (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2008 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November 20 from 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490.1v but JBA --- and 9330 has been on testing since at least 1907, so I check it too --- and here`s WORLD OF RADIO! But starting about 30 seconds later circa 2200:50, VG about S9+40 tnx to the 500 kW transmitter, finally, but not expected to recur.
Also confirmed UT Thu Nov 21 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S9/+10.
Next edition WOR 2009 expected to première Friday Nov 22 at 2300 on WRMI 9955; UT Sat Nov 23 at 0130 on WRMIs 5010, 5850, 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 20 at 1907, WBCQ-6 is already on with big 500 kW signal, S9+30 with folk music, ``Good Morning, America``; 2200:50 with WORLD OF RADIO, finally getting a chance on the SuperStation as now it`s simulcasting whatever be on 7490; see separate WOR report.
9330 not checked again until 2355 when it`s hitting S9+50! with rock music; is it // 7490+v now? JBA too weak to tell. 2356 quick Japanese announcement, and novelty C&W song ``Marijuana, the Devil`s Flower``. 2359.5 it`s `Radio TimTron WorldWide` at half-way mark, another hour to come ``on the big signal`` --- so maybe he`s live as a benefit of getting this thing operational again. And not scheduled now on 7490.
At 0002 Nov 21 however, suddenly dead air, canned ID, start to play sign-off theme, but 0003 various tone tests, and back to music. Seems to be mostly novelty tunes for the rest of the hour, including until 0037 ``Sitting on My Face``. By 0058 has faded to only S9, running past 0101 with more novelty music, off-key singing; and TT closes with credit to FARTS. By 0102 has joined another program, M&W talkshow about the Epstein suicide ``down there`` --- yes, it must be `Just Right` which originates in Ontario and is scheduled 0000-0130 on 7490 which is still JBA preventing definite match. Only last third here. Mainly it`s two guys but the woman must be Danielle Metz who has her own related show. See https://www.justrightmedia.org/blog/about
9330 not checked again until 0256 UT Thu Nov 21, now in another talk show, about Ukraine; not // 7490 which is more audible, or rather it is // but not synchronized with 9330 as usual running about 30 seconds behind in convoluted hookup, so it`s Hal Turner who on UT Thu only, gets two hours on 7490; and also on WRMI 9455, which I quickly check at 0300 to hear him ID for WBCQ (only!). Right back to 9330, which is also running somewhat behind 9455. At 0301 he starts to play a version of the Star Spangled Banner, OK at first but then morphs into a hard-rock version to a different tune -- a Hal Turner monstrosity, I suppose.
All these WBCQ shows on 9330 must be classified only as tests, not to recur; so where`s World`s Last Chance? No hurry! WBCQ websked alleges WLC is daily 2030-0300, surely an approximation, and nothing else on 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
