Glenn Hauser logs September 10-11, 2020

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 4940, Sept 10 at 0244, via TWR Bonaire, JBA carrier only, which may be R. San Antonio, Peru, eclipsed by the new nameless Colombian? when it`s on but not tonight nor later. Several monitors and I find it connected with LV de tu Conciencia, and one even heard an ID for its inactive frequency 6010 probably from an old recording, but nothing definite about real name or location now, remote Puerto Lleras like 6010 & 5910 were? Rafael Rodríguez says he has no info about that yet. I`ve also asked a Canadian charity backer but no reply. Alan Pennington, BDXC-UK recorded via Bonaire a *2300 sign-on Sept 9 with no ID but 3rd verse of truncated Colombian NA.

4940 is back on, Sept 11 at 0039 check via Bonaire, S9 with carrier -4 to -5 Hz on SynchAM, preacher droning. 0045 into mariachi song, but this is not Mexico. After that preacher says he is confined to home because of coronavirus, in April. Sounds like the same spiel I heard a few nights ago.

BTW, Brandon Jordan found the other weak carrier, Peru? on 4939.71. I never hear any such het but a much closer SAH now. So are they deliberately obliterating fellow Christians? Evangelicals do not get along with Catholix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5800, UT Thu Sept 10 at 0300, `Encore` on WRMI, new time Brice Avery is unaware of, and indeed it is not yet a prepeat but a repeat of previous weekend`s I already heard including a Passacaglia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9605, Sept 10 at 0154, the KBS World Radio relay in Spanish at 0100 is still running via WHRI, Korean? song at S9+10/20, despite VOV 7315 relay stopped (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1710 kHz, Sept 10 at 0637-0645+ UT, a loop heard definitely mentioning COVID-19 several times at peaks vs high storm noise level. I often have a JBA carrier on 1710 but first time I have had some audio from this. No ID caught, but often reported further east is TIS licensee despite the music, and also said to have temp authority for higher power than 10 watts, 100? from Secaucus NJ, which is 2119 km from Enid = 1317 statute miles:

Harold Frodge, MI, recently: ``1710 WQFG689 Hudson County (Seacaucus) NJ may be running higher power than usual during the pandemic. They are fair-good here often now. They play music behind some of the features.`` And from him earlier in MARE:

``1710 WQFG689 Hudson County (Seacaucus) NJ; 0136-0145+, 7/24; Talk over music at tune-in re COVID testing to 0139 call/QTH ID into traffic, activity & biz restrictions. VGood peaks! Best ever heard. (Frodge-MI)``

And from Larry Will: ``7/15, 0017, 1710am. WQFG689 Hudson County, NJ. COVID-19 PSA, Highway construction in Hoboken and Secaucus. Fair to good signal. (Will-MD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2051)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9-kHz JBA MW carrier search, Sept 10 at 0630 UT: 621, 747, 846, likely Canaries, ???, Kiritimati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3-CW kHz, single-letter beacon A has not been heard all summer despite frequent tunebys vs HSNL. Now this along with a contribution and unsolicited testimonial:

``The letter `A` station on 2097.3 has been QRT for some time now. It was [RST] 579 on VE6JY [Alberta remote] after dark many nights. 73, Joe Caberlin, Chester NS [with a sample VE1EJ QSL card showing Peggys Cove Lighthouse NS], ex-VE3ABG 1957-2014, 26 Aug 20`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2051)
