** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, May 18 at 0200, no signal yet from Station YHWH, anti-Jesus, pro-Yahweh pirate. Recheck at 0520, there he is, S9-S7 including the storm noise level. Rich Ray, IL, had reported May 17: ``The last 4 broadcasts have all started at 0158z and off at 0420z``.
These logs the same day say he did not come up until *0302:
including this comment from ``The Relay Station``
``I can imagine this guy inside an RV motor home someplace at a campground, sitting down and talking into a desktop amateur radio microphone with a subtle light overhead because it sure sounds that way - almost similar to the scene in the movie "2012"
0506Z - talking about Jewish people and Christian people
0508Z - "perpetual war for perpetual peace"
0511Z - "hybrid man-God"
0515Z - "obey YaWeh, paradise will be restored"
0520Z - cant listen to this anymore, off to bed :D``
As for location, Ron Howard, Monterey CA, says in the WOR iog, ``After he received his citation from FCC, while in southern California, I heard he moved out of state, but on May 5, while listening to a live segment of YHWH, he said he was "8,000 feet up in the Sierras"
Just a few nights ago he again said he was "in California" and gave the local "California" time here. Recently his reception has been so good (very readable) here on the coast, that I think it probably is true`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 7395, May 18 at 0002, Romanian very poor here, but in the clear, RRI having moved out from under the Cuban radio war on 7335, for the two-hour broadcast to North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 17 at 2322, that didn`t take long, WRMI reactivating this frequency, but very weak S4-S6 in storm noise level. At first I think it`s TOMBS // much stronger 7570, but soon not // with music, which I conclude is the Oldies stream. Different programming is on 9395 // 7780.
9455 had been replaced by 5950 as of May 14, moving everything 24 hours down two bands, despite summer propagation conditions. 5950 is still on, with different talk at first check 2322. By 2358, 9455 again sounds more like Brother Scare; maybe they are switching Systems around experimentally? Further chex:
9455, May 18 at 0118, now sounds like Oldies, with Beatles, etc., still past 0202 with no top-of-hour break. Still heard past 0300, but not at 0500. This is extremely weak, compared to 9395. Cannot any longer be at full power and/or on the 285 degree beam as previously; compared to 355 on 9395, and we are between them, closer to 285 than 355, with usually comparable signal levels.
Further chex of 9455 are certainly called for. The current WRMI skedgrid does not show any broadcasts on 9455, but they have plenty of spare transmitters and antennas.
Another remote possibility, some otherstation, or a pirate, decided to glom onto WRMI`s ex-frequency? So far unable to catch any definite ID, so buried in storm noise level from SW Oklahoma. (The frequent Maystorms keep missing Enid, little precip here which we need, but not tornado threats!)
The only known users of 9455 per NDXC/Aoki are: 1315-1345 Bangladesh in Nepali; 1330-1357 Furusato no Kaze in Japanese via Taiwan; 1500-1557 CRI in Chinese via Kunming. EiBi lacks Taiwan, but still shows all the WRMI ex-programming. HFCC lacks Bangladesh but adds Saudi in Arabic at 06-09, probably imaginary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490, UT Friday May 18 at 0002, WBCQ with ``William Tell Overture``, so an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback is starting. Soon it`s obviously an oldie, Angela referred to merely as girlfriend on an antique Western Electric mic, and opening remarks about Parkland mass-shooting, which must have just happened.
BTW, the benefactor for the superpower 9330 setup has come out, per Don Hosmer on the WOR iog: ``The mystery of who is financing WBCQ's multi-million $$$ expansion due on the air this fall may be solved. I am at the NASB conference in Elkhart IN and learned that an obscure religious group is behind the fancy new high-powered xmtr and super expensive rotatable antenna. On the web, go to: http://www.worldslastchance.com
After you bring up their home page, click the "WLC Radio" in the upper right corner. You'll hear audio of an English accented lass ID as WBCQ and introduce the new WLC broadcasts. Their schedule on the website matches the one listed a week ago on WOR. I don't know much about this organization, but from their website they appear to be end-time believers and also believe in the so-called flat earth theory. This could be a hoax, but if it is, it's very elaborate``.
Kai Ludwig replied on the WOR iog: ``This could be a hoax, but if it is --- then it is one spread by Allan Weiner himself, since he, according to:
released this information in his radio show.
What I like in particular are the beamer maps, centered on the North Pole, with inscriptions citing completely differing degree numbers as a matter of course. As one comment from Germany said: This is more ridiculous than one could ever think up.
Concerning the question who they are: They have broken away from the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Anything else is, it seems, kept as a secret, including the main question: The source of all the money they burn up.
My concern here is that such things could considerably accelerate the decline of shortwave broadcasting, because they make a complete mockery of the distribution platform --- Kai`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5970, May 18 at 0141, WEWN Spanish is back on air after missing last night; vs heavy storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15825, May 18 at 1401, WWCR is S9+30 with HF sporadic E boost, and modulation somewhat distorted as usual on this frequency (but not noticed on lower WWCR-1 channels elsewhen). 6m Es map shows lots of activity across the US, but not much into VHF yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1370, May 18 at 1202 UT, adstring, and then station promos for ``Talk 13-70`` and talk1370.com, never any local references, but that leads to Austin TX, officially KJCE Rollingwood, 5/0.5 kW U4 rather than slogan merely as ``Talk Radio`` in NRC AM Log. The true call letters are nowhere to be seen on the homepage, but some hits by searching further, including this helpful:
which also tries to lead listeners to an HD2 FM simulcast
Why am I hearing this instead of 5 kW ND KGNO 1370 in much closer Dodge City KS? Because it`s gone, or maybe QRP. KJCE pattern does push broadly northward, not southward.
Then to `America`s First News` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-6945 approx., May 18 at 0146, DRM-like noise centered about 6935, but twice the usual bandwidth. A piratical experiment? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15449, May 18 at 1404, big S9+10 burbling carrier when tuned in AM mode, but silent in FM mode. During next hour drifts down to 15447/15446. I can`t trace it to any local device, and still hear it when walking around the block on the PL-880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
