Radio Bulgaria to resume its audio broadcast

"Radio Bulgaria needs to resume its sound presence and we are to work together with the team, in order to build a firm concept in this direction." This was what BNR Director General Andon Baltakov said in his first interview with Radio Bulgaria.

On the eve of Radio Bulgaria's 84th anniversary, which is celebrated on February 16, 2020, Mr. Baltakov said that broadcasts of the National Radio aimed for foreign countries would be modernized, but would preserve their philosophy - being Bulgaria's window to the world and vice versa. 

----------

Interview:

After a series of concussions due to the recent crisis in the management of the Bulgarian National Radio, Andon Baltakov was elected General Director of the media by Bulgaria’s Council of Electronic Media. He made his first steps in journalism at Radio Bulgaria, and his work with the most prominent names in the history of the BNR set the direction for his future development. After specializing in the BBC, he joined the Associated Press in New York and later CNN Digital, where he rose to managerial positions.
My career in the United States has given me a lot both professionally and personally. For me as a person and a professional, there comes a time when you start thinking about what you could give in return. As the Bulgarian National Radio underwent several periods of crisis in recent years, I did an analysis before writing my strategy for the future development of the media with which I applied for the post, and came to the conclusion that much of these crises were caused by the way the organization was managed. I think that over the past 20 years, I have not only gained the theoretical knowledge of modern management of a complex structure such as the BNR but I also know the specifics of doing digital journalism and the people who create radio programmes could benefit from that knowledge and my management style. 
The love for the radio medium and the challenge of taking the public broadcaster to the forefront in the digital space motivated Andon Baltakov to take a decisive step towards Bulgaria and leave his settled life and successful career in the United States. Most important to him are the people, not the management functions or systems that exist in an organization. In order to understand what people's attitudes are, he holds meetings with the employees of all departments of the Bulgarian National Radio.
On the one hand, I feel hope, but on the other, fear,” Baltakov says. “I cannot understand why people have been afraid for so long. Fear causes them to not think creatively and has a negative effect on their skills. I want to somehow catalyze the change in this inner feeling inside everyone so that each person can fully develop their abilities and also derive pleasure from their job. This is one of the main factors for successful development.
In the creative organizations where I worked in the US, people go to work with love because they fully develop their creative potential. This is how I come to work every day so I expect it from others, as well. They have my full support, if they are just as sincere as I am in my quest to contribute to the future development of the BNR. "
For the new director general of the BNR, Radio Bulgaria is "Bulgaria's window to the world and of the world to Bulgaria."
With this philosophical framework, I will work with my colleagues at Radio Bulgaria to realize it," he stresses. “With regard to the audio presence of the programme, Baltakov is adamant that it must exist. With the help of the people in the programme, he intends to build a consistent strategy with which broadcasts targeted for audiences abroad can take on a more contemporary look.
As a person who has lived for many years abroad, Andon Baltakov's observations are that foreigners are primarily interested in culture and security, whether they are temporarily residing in a country or visit it simply as tourists. The same applies to us, Bulgarians.
The first thing we check is whether the state is stable. Then we are interested to know about local people, whether they are smiling and responsive, about how they live. Travel guides have all the information about where and what to visit. But what people visiting a country want to know is where the locals go, how they have fun, what makes them happy. The point is to show how we live and how hospitable we are. America is completely different. I cannot compare Bulgaria with the United States. Both countries have their pros and cons. I have traveled and worked in other countries and always wanted to see the good things because every country has something to enrich me with as a person and as a professional. Yes, there are things that we do not like, but it is also good to find the positive ones. This also applies to people - every person, deep down, is innately good!”

Glenn Hauser logs February 25-26, 2020

** CHINA. 9315, Feb 26 at 1507, VP W&M in Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer against RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan at 11-14 & 15-16, altho Aoki does not as*erisk the final hour as jammed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Feb 25 at 0723, RHC English is S9+20 and undermodulated. Instead of one frequency after 0700, two more remain on, 6100 S9+30/40 undermodulated but slightly better; 6145 S9+10 undermod and noisy. 5040 and 6060 are off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Feb 25 at 1910, RHC S9+10 of dead air; while 15140 is S9+20 of distorted, humming, choking Arabic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 18079-CW, Feb 26 at 1543, CO8LY is the OSOB, per QRZ.com: CO8LY, Cuba, Eduardo Somoano Cremati, P.O. Box 104, Santiago de Cuba 90100, Cuba, but QSL only via manager in Spain. I used to hear him on the 12 m band, but now he`s the OSOB on ``17`` m. And nothing on the 16 m ISWBC band either. He`s quite a contester with numerous awards, and portrait: https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.qrz.com/y/co8ly/somoano_201.jpg   (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.234, Feb 25 at 2303, RHC is S9+10 and distorted, now day 14 = two weeks of off-frequency, which is very stable, every time I measure it within 1 or 2 Hz, maybe within my own margin of error. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 kHz, Feb 25 around 1530 UT, no signal from EI, Enid`s only NDB at Woodring Airport; nor at various other times, night and day, so gone again, for good or not? Was always very weak here a few km, and even fewer miles away. I`m thinking that many years ago there was one on 212 kHz with a different call, ODG? But have not been able to find any reference to it. That`s the current VOR call on VHF (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 25 at 2302, notably, VOT English is on today but undermodulated. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7185-LSB, Feb 25 at 1920, KX4BI calling `CQ Parx On the Air`` and making quick pro-forma contacts as if it were some contest. POTA is one of the logos on his QRZ.com, i.e. KX4BI, Vance E Henry, Killen, AL 35645 USA, which is in the NW corner of Alabama. What park? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Feb 26 at 1457, K6FRC HIFER beacon is JBA again, never heard in the afternoons (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13852+, 13836+, 13804-, 13788-, 13772-, Feb 25 at 1535, JJBBA carriers at slightly more than 16 kHz multiples above and below 13820, Radio Martí which is S9+40 on fundamental; at 1615 I manage to measure one, 13852.202, which amounts to 16.101 kHz each. Some later chex inaudible, fundamental level not reaching threshold. They would probably say the spurs are a sufficient db down, so hearing them at all is a challenge (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Final SWBCs of WORLD OF RADIO 2022:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Feb 25 at 1902, I resolve to listen to SMTV via WRMI since I happen to catch them *not* wasting time listing all their cable TV channels: about Aussie bush fire relief with vegan food, music background; 1907 the SM thanx everyone; 1908 about UNICEF vs flooding in Malawi; S9+10 with deep fades (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050, Feb 25 at 0725, open carrier again, S9-S7, maybe a trace of modulation? Not related to 5040 Cuba which is now off.

Also Feb 26 at 0627, S7-S8, trace of mod? vs S6-S7 noise level. Now 5040 RHC is still on and splashing. Other ideas: could be an harmonic x 5 of a 1010 station; or in this shared fixed/broadcast band, utility such as an idle RTTY transmitter only occasionally vivified. Not local, as Ron Howard replies:

``Glenn - On Feb 26, random checking of 5050 kHz, between 0452-0620, and heard your UNID. Found there with a significant level carrier, but never any trace of audio; no modulation at all. Still UNID. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Media & Tech - 26/02/2020


75 years of Radio Canada International

It was February 25, 1945 that the CBC International Service began shortwave broadcasting to Europe. It was designed at the time to provide accurate news to occupied areas in

English French and German, and to provide news from home for the huge contingent of Canadian military personnel serving and fighting in the Second World War.

Since then the “IS” has gone through a variety of changes, including the name which was changed to Radio Canada International in 1970. It has been through several moves, from its first location in a former brothel, to the converted Ford Hotel a few years later, to rented office tower space, to the main headquarters of the French service, Radio-Canada.

QSL cards such as this one from 1964 were collectors items for shortwave listeners around the world, but also an important way for technicians to verify the quality and reach of the signals to places around the world. RCI still gets requests for QSL cards, but as we no longer have a mail room, nor broadcast on shortwave, there are no more QSL cards. (SWLing Post)

It has also gone through a number of language-service changes, from 14 languages during the cold war broadcasting to formerly free countries then under the control of Moscow, to its current five languages, Mandarin, Spanish, Arabic, English and French.

RCI offices today in the lower level of the French language headquarters of Radio-Canada in Montreal ( Leo Gimeno-RCI)

Other changes include the drastic cuts of 2012 which saw some 80 per cent of staff cut and the cessation of shortwave to become its current online operation.

Throughout it all RCI continues to inform on Canadian issues including political, scientific, cultural and societal and provide Canadian viewpoints and positions on world affairs.

Glenn Hauser logs February 23-24-25, 2020

** CUBA. 9538-9590, Feb 24 at 2220, range of splatter from filthy wall-of-noise jamming centered on 9565 vs Radio Martí. 9535 RHC barely escapes it.

9925-9980, Feb 24 at 2221, range of splatter from WON jamming centered on 9955 vs WRMI, i.e. against the Argentine historical media program `La Rosa de Tokio`, Monday being the only DOW that 9955 is in Spanish during this hour! NOT amicable. Always excessive and wasteful the DentroCuban Jamming Command. Probably jams every day at this hour, and many other unnecessary times: take that, RMI, for daring to emit any exiles! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 24 at 2328, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski vs Cuban pulse jamming against nothing else; until autocutoff at 2352:27.5*. Last check was Feb 18 until 2352:40*, 6 days ago and 12.5 seconds later, so averaging slightly over 2 seconds earlier per noctem.

My first definite timing in latest cycle was until 2355:27.5* on November 26, 2019 --- That was 90 days ago, and exactly 3.0 minutes or 180.0 seconds later, making for a very neat exact 2.00 seconds long-term average and they have not reset the timer so far, as 2 seconds a day is hardly noticeable to them. Nor could there have been any power failure over three months, as that would surely have knocked askew this inexorable slippage; speaks well for Urubamba Electric (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) 

** TAIWAN [non]. 9490, Feb 25 at 0108, no signal from RTI`s alleged 4-night test in Spanish to S America at 0100-0130 via mystery site. It was supposed to start UT Feb 23 but not checked until now. There was a JBA signal in Chinese(?) until 0100* as RTI was already scheduled direct from Taiwan so more likely audible is CNR1 jamming. It would hardly make sense to try a mostly day-path on 9 MHz band to the other worldside.

It goes off at 0100 sharp and nothing further detectable here, so I spot-check 9490 on numerous remotes starting with UTwente after confirming WOR at 0108 on 7780: Nothing there. Nor any of these until 0119: Nanning, Rockport, KFS, NSW, Tokyo, Pardinho, Florida, VE6JY, Bogota, RSA. Rockport and KFS do get some residual jamming. I think it`s safe to say the test is not on air tonight. Wolfgang Bueschel reached the same conclusion. He was getting it last night UT Feb 24, best signal via Sevilla SDR. His best guesses for site: Issoudun, Nauen or Moosbrunn, discounting Kostinbrod and Maiac (Bulgaria, Pridnestrovye) because their audio quality is not so good.

Then wb and I both asked Jeff White, now at HFCC Malaysia, to confirm whether it`s WRMI via Issoudun. I had figured this was the obvious source since RMI/TDF was already registered 9490, but unused at 0100, rather Radio República not until *0200 as I recently monitored. Jeff replies to me: ``No, we have nothing to do with these RTI tests, and TDF knows nothing about them either.`` 

BTW, Aljazeera computes that as of Feb 23, Malaysia had 22 confirmed Coronavirus cases but 15 had recovered and been released. HFCC had been planned for China but had to be removed.

A repeat of the Spanish test was supposed to be at 0300-0330 on 9500, but not heard then either by Bogotá, but a JBA carrier here UT Feb 25, probably CNR1 as scheduled. I don`t bother to check all the other remotes again. So the mystery remains: whence the tests, will they recur tomorrow, and/or become permanentized? If we do have another chance, TDOA should be invoked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 24 at 2305, 2327 and 2350 chex, NO signal from Voice of Turkey, English to North America. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. 

I also found no such signal Feb 23 at 2340, but Wolfgang Bueschel was hearing it at 2315-2323 in Europe and via remotes in eastern America. Maybe it went off early (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2022: Richard Langley, NB:

** U S A. 9330.0, Feb 24 at 2157, WBCQ-6 WLC is on, wrapping up Arabic; recheck at 2215, still on in Brazuguese but much weaker. 22-23 had been the only maintenance/silent hour, but now apparently making up for lost time.

9330 Feb 25 at 0312 is a JBA carrier, not sure if WBCQ or a birdie; but propagation is down with much lower powered 9265V WINB also a JBA carrier and no trace of 7850-CUSB CHU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs February 23-24, 2020

** CUBA. 9965, Feb 24 at 1513, pulse jamming vs nothing, old Radio República Costa Rica frequency, and also on 9955 now that WRMI has finished morning block; the latter also briefly jammed by continuous tones. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Feb 23 at 2050, jazz music to 2057* with no announcement, must have been APR via MWV English hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.9-AM, Feb 23 at 2351 unID pirate music JBA at S5-S6. A few other reports as unID as if on 6925, 2330-0004: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,63491.0.html In May 2017, Captain Morgan Shortwave was on this off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, Mon Feb 24 at 1511, S4-S6 open carrier, presumably REE which on weekdays is supposed to start at 1600, weekends 1500. Beam to ME but this early, often better here off the back than 9690 to us off the front (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 23 at 2340, VOT English to us is AWOL again. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 366 kHz, Feb 23 at 0710 UT, ND beacon EOK, which is 25 watts from Keokuk, Iowa; new one here; mixing with YMW and dash, 500 watts from Maniwaki, Quebec, heard often without EOK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7615-USB, Feb 24 at 1525, Civil Air Patrol net with YL-sounding NCS; quick check-ins by Mockingbirds 50, 8 and 34, who are in Mississippi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2022 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday February 24 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9 via indoor random wire during storm, but fadeout by 0145.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 24 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair via UTwente SDR, but no signal on // 9395; nor here nor on various SDRs to the SSE, NE or NW; yet 9455 is OK in New York, so I conclude 9395 is NOT on the air as it and 9455 are on exactly same azimuth 355. Yet by 0409, 9395 is S9+10 with TOMBS. WOR via WRN webcast also confirmed at 0230.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 24 from 0400 on Area 51 webcast; WBCQ 5130 JBA at 0409 & 0427, now back on external longwire.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 24 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, VP under wall of noise jamming, but OK on webcast. F-G on the Bogotá KiwiSDR but not at all on the other one in Colombia. Next:

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
17 - 23 February 2020

Solar activity was very low. No active regions with sunspots were
observed and no apparent earth-directed CMEs were detected this
period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
moderate levels on 17-19 Feb and high levels on 20-23 Feb.

Geomagnetic field activity reached active levels on 18 Feb and
active to G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm levels on 19 Feb. The
enhanced geomagnetic field activity on 18-19 Feb were attributed to
the passage of a transient solar wind feature. Active conditions
were once again observed on 21 Feb due to negative polarity CH HSS
influence. Generally quiet or quiet to unsettled conditions were
observed throughout the remainder of the week.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
24 February - 21 March 2020

Solar activity is expected to be very low throughout the outlook
period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 24 Feb-01 Mar, 05-09 Mar, and 19-21
Mar. Normal or normal to moderate levels are expected to prevail
throughout the remainder of the outlook period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach active levels on 26
Feb, 04-05 Mar, and 19 Mar due to the infuences of multiple
recurrent CH HSSs. Generally quiet or quiet to unsettled conditions
are expected to prevail throughout the rest of the outlook period
under a nominal solar wind regime.

Sophisticated Soviet spy radio discovered buried in former forest in Germany

Archaeologists digging for the remains of a Roman villa near the German city of Cologne have found a sophisticated Soviet spy radio that was buried there shortly before the fall of the Iron Curtain.
The spy radio was buried inside a large metal box that was hermetically sealed with a rubber ring and metal screws. Although the radio's batteries had run down after almost 30 years in the ground, the box hissed with inrushing air when it was opened.


"Everything in the box was carefully encased in wrapping paper — it is a factory-fresh radio," said archaeologist Erich Classen from the Rhineland Regional Association (LVR).
The buried box and the hidden radio were found in August 2019 by a team of archaeologists digging near what was once a path through the Hambach Forest, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) west of Cologne, in an area earmarked for an open-cast lignite mine and now cleared of trees.
They expected to find fragments from a Roman-age settlement thought to have been built in the area, and so they were surprised when they instead unearthed a pit and the metal box.
"We think the radio will work if a new battery is available, but we didn't try," Classen said. "Restoration work was not necessary."

Iron Curtain

The radio has been identified as a model R-394KM transmitter and receiver — code-named "Strizh," meaning "Swift" — that was manufactured in the Soviet Union in 1987. It was carried by agents into Western Europe shortly after that, and only a few years before the fall between 1989 and 1991 of the "Iron Curtain" of communism that divided Eastern and Western Europe. 
The scientists suspect agents would have used the spy radio to send secret reports back to the Soviet Union about observation of the Jülich Nuclear Research Centre, about 6 miles (10 km) west of where it was found; or of the military air base at Nörvenich, about the same distance to the southeast, where U.S. Pershing nuclear missiles were based until 1995. 
It's possible that "Stasi," or State Security Service agents from the Soviet-controlled German Democratic Republic in the east of the country buried the spy radio in West Germany for future use, Classen said.
It may also have been a back-up in case a spy's other radios were damaged or seized.
The high-frequency or shortwave radio was capable of transmitting and receiving messages as far as 750 miles (1,200 km) — far enough to reach Warsaw in Poland, which was then part of the Soviet bloc. 
But the pristine condition of the buried radio suggests that it was never used, and it was probably forgotten and left in the ground soon after the fall of the Iron Curtain, Classen said.

Spy secrets

Some features of the Soviet spy radio hint at who might have used it.
Unlike most other radios of the same model, which are labeled in Russian using the Cyrillic alphabet, the controls of the radio found in the Hambach Forest area are labeled in English and the Roman alphabet.
That suggests it was designed to be used by a German or an English speaker, rather than a Russian; but it may also have been a form of camouflage, to hide the true origins of the radio in the Soviet Union.
The paper wrapped around the radio, however, had sequences of numbers in Russian handwriting, giving positions of the dials on the radio that could be used — similar number sequences have been found on Soviet checklists, Classen said.
It's unlikely that further details of the mystery of the Hambach Forest spy radio will be found, given that it's been so long since it was buried. But the spy radio itself is now part of the LVR's collection, and it is on display at the LVR-Landes Museum in Bonn until March 29, Classen said.
Some of the ancient artifacts from the same dig are also on display in the museum, but archaeologists haven't yet determined exactly how old they are, he said. (Tom Metcalfe - Live Science Contributor for livescience.com)

FESTE NAZIONALI
Festa dell'Indipendenza in Estonia

Glenn Hauser logs February 21-22-23, 2020

** ANTARCTICA. LRA-36, 15475.98 via Brasil SDR, Feb 22, continued listening from last report: 1830 mentions a helicopter, and tries to play a song about Antarctica, 1831 succeeds, 1833 trying for a hookup with another Arg base, San Martín, but does not seem to make it; 1836 ID and `Antártida`` song, 1840 ID, mentions ``El día de la Antártida Argentina``, marking continuous presence for 116 years since 1904y. Here`s more about that:

https://www.losandes.com.ar/article/view?slug=el-dia-de-la-antartida-argentina

Still going at my next and last check of Brasil SDR at 1920. Dan Robinson said it went off at 1912 UTC, but he must have meant 2012 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.233, Feb 22 at 2253, RHC S9/+10 in distorted Spanish, off-frequency for the eleventh day. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Feb 23 at 1555, this RHC still on with S9+20 of dea air like it was an hour earlier. Think of how many poor Cubans might have had a hearty breakfast for the wasted electricity expense of just one hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 23 at 1556, China Plus relay is S9+20 but JBM, suptorted: wiggle that patchcord! Just about to end but likely thus the past bihour. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15210-15215-15220, Feb 23 at 1620, Radio Öömrang via FRANCE in DRM, first time this year that the Feb 21 original get such a repeat, altho one year they had to reschedule when the first AM one failed. VG with a few dropouts via the KC2QII KiwiSDR, as I still am not motivated to tune any DRM directly myself. Once again a couple of brief bits in English at 1626 & 1628 introducing interviews in Frisian, which I do not understand any better in DRM than in AM. Just caught tail of sign-off also in English until 1659* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Feb 23 at 0214, JBA music not // 1390 so not fifth harmonic of local KCRC. 0348 still there but at 0412 I do find it // 1390. Maybe this what I was getting at first, with enough AM carrier from the KCRC X 5 local harmonic to make it seem AM: unID 6950-USB 0143-0155: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,63445.0.html

However, earlier, Loopy Radio was on 6950.3-AM until 2340*: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,63439.0.html But this was later and not noted to be +0.3 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. As mentioned previously, Kyle Williams, president of Williams Broadcasting, LLC, licensee of 103.1 KOFM, 100.9 K265FL and its AM dog 960 KGWA, was among the speakers at The Entrepreneur 2020, a 2-day series of seminars at NWOSU sponsored in part by the Charles Koch Foundation, Feb 21 at 1930 UT -- previous one ran over and did not start until 1953. It was supposed to be audio/video-linked to three other NWOSU campi but no one showed up there. 

Despite his original billing as head of the radio stations, those are only a minor part, it seems, of his business empire, so we learned absolutely nothing about the local broadcasting scene; rather his life story of trying and failing and then succeeding. 

In the Q&A I wanted to ask him about naming his studio for a funeral home, but figured more important was, ``As a Christian who `loves people`, how can you justify broadcasting a hate-monger like Rush Limbaugh?`` Answer: ``because he loves the lord`` --- there you go! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 22 at 2300, VOT timesignal ends one sesquisecond later than WWV as usual; sign-on with totally wrong English schedule as usual, e.g. this transmission at 22-23 on 9830 which is when and where it is in summer A-seasons. Something`s always awkward at Ankara. Already off at 2349 recheck, if it lasted for entire transmission, but no collision this week of German from Turkey vs English from Germany, Mighty Farty KBC at 0000 Feb 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 410 kHz, Feb 23 at 0721 UT, ND beacon BA, which is 25 watts from Columbus - Clifford, Indiana. Altho spring storms are not yet a problem on LW/MW, I now have local line noise bothering this band only, difficultizing DX --- hard to hear anything new, as this is not either, altho I still pulled but not relogged CBC Cayman Brac on 415 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6477.5-CW, Feb 22 at 2358, V marker from KPH, the MRHS legacy station at Point Reyes, California; V/CQ marine markers are so rare these days that any really stand out. Longer message repeating, I suppose with QSX info, not copied; active weekends only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Feb 23 at 1452, K6FRC beacon audible again vs CODAR. Daily I check the entire HIFER/ISM band 13550-13570 and this is the only one I ever hear, rarely. What about all the others on this roster, including latest dates reported somewhere, 2020, 2019 or 2018y? https://www.lwca.net/sitepage/part15/index.htm In years past I had heard several of those, at least three still on the list, GNK, MTI, SZX. K6FRC shown as 13565.035, 10 wpm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) 

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2022 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports ``Fair signal of World of Radio #2022 on February 22: 1300-1330 on 15770 RMI 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu English Sat``

Also confirmed UT Sunday Feb 23 at 0432 from WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, via K9MQ KiwiSDR in IN/IL, about 5 minutes in, so started circa 0427; lots of LSB ACI, and then on 160m direct I find it full of phone signals, as happens only during a contest; amazing what a difference that make to normal ops. Earlier at 0349, 1860 here was VG S9+20. Next:

2130 UT Sunday    WRMI 7780

As acknowledged at mid-break: Our thanks this week for financial support from Karl Witsman, Danville IL, who sent a contribution via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com. One may also contribute by money order or check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Feb 22 at 2305 NO signal from WBCQ-6: oh2, another breakdown? Not for long; is there at 2350 check, only fair in Brazuguese. Apparently still on a scheduled break at 2200-2300.

9330, Feb 23 at 1919, NO signal from World`s Last Chance, supposed to be on now in Arabic, which ought to be audible tho aimed thataway. Oh3, another breakdown? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130.0, Feb 23 at 0001 tune-in, WBCQ dead air, shortly ``Loituma Girl`` IS and TimTron opening, S9+10. Meanwhile, other WBCQ on 7490.2v was also S9 of dead air at 0001. Later in evening without measuring, noticed closer to 7490.1v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9350, Sat Feb 22 after 2100, WWCR-2 with `Encore` classical music from Radio Tumbril in Scotland. Brice announces that this airing will end after next week, as will the WBCQ at 0100 UT Monday on 7490 --- but it`s moving to WRMI, starting Feb 29 [UT March 1], UT Sunday 0100 on 5850 to the NW, and UT Monday 0300 on 9455 to the NNW. Glad this excellent show will continue on SW! But these WRMI frequencies are not webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Feb 23 at 0125, WTWW-2 not checked earlier, but no theatre organ music now; was it earlier or never? Now it`s rock; and at 0211 I notice 5085 is off the air, while $tereo webcast continues. At 0238 DJ recommends SWLs tune to the webcast --- but there are no SWLs at the moment; 0350 check it`s on again with rock DJ requests (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050, Feb 23 at 0645, mystery carrier here again, S8-S9 but no modulation audible vs 5040 RHC splash. Another possibility: like the 11850 transmitter, a +10 kHz JBA spur from it; but cannot hear a match at minus 10 on 5030, altho more splash there from 5025. Further, the crummy modulation of 5040 is not like that on 11850 if it were same transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13671.7, Feb 23 at 1455, JBA carrier. Does not correlate with 13820 OCB, 13740 or 13700 RHC as spurs, and no siblings found in quick scan. Possibly a local device or birdie but not there at 1920 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
