** ANGUILLA. 18125-USB, Jan 26 at 1557, a VP2 making quick contacts with US & Canadians, causing pileups, e.g., i.a. WB0X trying to get in repeatedly. Says he`s making a list of callsigns and will get to them eventually, so take it easy; his own call is uttered fonetikally but so quickly and weakly that I can`t be sure of it: VP2EH? A bit of whistling jamming. Finally at 1606 I hear him say he`s Ira on Anguilla where it`s raining. Searching finds VP2EH is someone else there, but a DX cluster now finds Ira as VP2EIH; the I got lost:
VP2EIH Anguilla flag Anguilla
PO BOX 1206
He has some religious remarks there which make one wonder if he`s involved with SW inactive The Caribbean Beacon, also in The Valley (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** BRAZIL. 15190.046, at 2250, JBA in presumed Portuguese, R. Inconfidência, Belo Horizonte, signature off-frequency reported by others but seldom detected here. Also a het from something further askew, approx. 15190.735, possibly a local birdie. An overlooked log note, not sure from Jan 24 or 25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, Jan 26, WOR)
** CUBA. 13833, 13766, 13635, 13569 approx., Jan 26 at 1459, spurblobs with F# tone from 13700-AM, 65-67 kHz intervals. Wolfgang Bueschel reported on nominal RHC frequencies a few minutes earlier at 1430 as heard by remotes, but nothing about these. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 9455, Jan 26 at 1551, surprise, Brother HyStairical is back here, no doubt WRMI reactivated --- but it`s not the #8 transmitter which a few weeks ago moved everything 24h to 5950, because 5950 is also still on weaker with BS. Per skedgrid at this hour, only two transmitters are unaccounted for, #2 which was limited to 5985 at night, 222 degrees; and #4 as ``11710``, 160 degrees, without any hours and which has never been heard anywhen. 9455 is never shown. Rather, 5 of them are scheduled Sabbathdays only for TOMBS. It would be remarkable -- and a big load on the grid? if all 14 or even 13 were ever on air at once.
Quick check before 1600 finds TOMBS also on WRMI 9395, 9955; WWCR 9980 and surely others. There can never be enough of The Overkiller! 1750, 9955 is off as scheduled, 9455 still on // 9395 both with robotic preaching. 9455 weaker as it was before compared to 9395 when both were allegedly 355 degrees, wasteful when duplicated.
WRMI on 9455, if again 24h, conflicts with USAGM from Kuwait, Saipan, of course provoking, ChiCom jamming, even Firedragon; China, Bangladesh (ha ha), JIC MIC Japan, Saudi Arabia (mostly wooden?); none of this a problem at HFCC? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
