** CUBA. 6000, Feb 28 at 0709, RHC in S9+30 of dead air, but 6100 is still modulating English at S9+10/20; while 6060, 5040 and 9700 are all off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** FRANCE. Re my unID 17850 open carrier, Feb 26 at 1542*, maybe RFI/TDF which is on there at 07-11 only, Wolfgang Bueschel replies: ``Previous seasons also to NoWeAF and WeAF target: 17850 1700 1800 37E,38W,47,52,57 ISS 500 153 -9 196 Fra F RFI TDF`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0006, no signal from The Mighty KBC via GERMANY, altho a weak JBA carrier on plus side about 5960.5 --- maybe local birdie as East Turkistan, land of genocide is normally minus less than that. But 0022 recheck, now KBC is on with rock, S9/+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 4060-USB, Feb 28 at 0432, Voice of Pancho Villa, annual tradition for, if not from, the Winter SWL Fest, is underway according to schedule publicized in HF Underground. I`m listening via the NA5B remote near WDC, where it`s S4-S7 and noisy. Mixed with Andean music, someone calls me, gh at 0432 and my actor replies uncertainly. It seems that I, gh, am a recurring character in these things. It`s all very disjointed, and my log notes reflect this!
Something about Viagra. Tommy Kneitel can`t be here because of a problem with his pants. TK also recurs with different excuses each time. WorldWide Crackpot Radio, gospel huxter asserts that gh is the first Beast in Revelation. QSL offer via email@example.com. Stops at 0445 so seems it`s a 15-minute show, and just in time for next airing, legally via WBCQ 6160-, q.v.
At 0500 possible frequencies publicized are 3185, 4020, 3200, all USB, and 5875-5915 AM. The only one the NA5B remote can hear is 3185-USB, poorly at 0501 and seems to be a repeat of the 0430 and 0445 content (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6932-USB, Feb 28 8at 0010, dense rock music, S9; 0017 fade for quick announcement and more mx; 0025, ``looks like the band has gone out; have a nice weekend; KIND`` and gone. Many more logs here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78529.0.html that Zeke was the DJop; he uses numerous identities (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SCOTLAND [non]. 7570, Sat Feb 27 at 23-24; and 5850, UT Sun Feb 28 at 01-02, `Encore` classical music from Radio Tumbril via WRMIs, I listen each week to most of it on the first, and pick up anypart missed, or rehear on the second, both of which are our best bets for frequencies aimed right at us NW from Okeechobee, so reliably VG. One more chance is UT Mon at 0300 on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 4027-USB, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0013, brief bit sounds like MARS net talk, into digital blaaaps. Seems last time I logged this frequency was at a totally different daypart in 2017y:
``4027-USB, Wed Oct 11 at 1123, MARS net discussing decodifying, abbr`d calls as AL, WX or 4WX, AQG.`` But it`s often reported in the MARE Tipsheet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2075 monitoring: not confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO via KB0FX remote, tune-in at 2042 to ARNL at S9+10; after St Louis area meeting info, still no WOR but starting ARRL News at 2058. Maybe we were on way earlier than nominal 2030; or way later. Sat Feb 27.
Confirmed Sat Feb 27 at 2239 the 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+25 with jamming litely underaudible.
Also confirmed Sat Feb 27 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, JBA here, but presumably much better eastward.
Also confirmed UT Sun Feb 28 from 0430 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, via nearby KB0FX remote. Next:

** U S A. 5800, Feb 27 at 0200-0300, Shortwave Shindig in Exile via WRMI, sent my full report to David Goren and got his reply 24h later:
``Hi Glenn: Thank you for the thorough report and for publicizing the show prior to broadcast. And I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It was great to get the CMS2 piece out to a wider audience.
Here’s a link to the program as received at my QTH in Brooklyn, NY.

** U S A. 6159.93, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0328, Texas Radio Shortwave via
WBCQ, song about water, and roboyl ID with eQSL offer. 0343 it has switched to German. I thought this would be a repeat of previous show already heard, but I don`t recall that song. So I`m mainly attentive to Weekend Radio on WCLV webcast. TRSW no good to remotes in VA or KC, but fair S6-S7 to KB0FX in MO, tho noisy. Blitzortung shows storms all across Missouri from Joplin to St Louis; also along the KY/TN border (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. (6159.93), Feb 28 at 0445 I`m listening to WBCQ Area 51/61 stream for perfect reception of Voice of Pancho Villa, after just hearing it on some 4060-USB pirate; see NORTH AMERICA. Music is in $tereo! This seems to be a duplicate of the 4060 airing: T.K. can`t be here; PV sad because can`t find Bob Brown [so this is new, original Festmeister just deceased]. Where the hell is Enid. Further expletives say hemp instead of hell. YL knox on gh` door and something? ensues. Party for Gerry Dexter`s 100th birthday. 0452, 1-800-PAYGLEN[n]. gh ``hasn`t had an erexion in a sesquimonth`` [o, yeah?]. WWCrackpotR again. HLV? to Bob L Brown; YL with QSL address. 0459 cut to WBCQ ID, and I assume it`s over -- but no, more VOPV theme music and here we go again:
Some of it is the same as before but some not. Apparently they are replaying VOPVs from years goneby, judging from dated current event references. This keeps going past 0600 when I bail out. But first: 1-900-PAYGLEN[n]; something about DX Partyline, and gh`s DX DAILY [remember that?]. Beavis & Butthead take I-80 to visit gh in Enid, who is allegedly ``looking for a woman who appreciates RF`` -- as in rough foreplay? ``Take me to sidebar!``. IRS vs Gerry Dexter.
At 0512, I try to hear this on 6160-, but no signals at KB0FX or NA5B remotes; evidently WBCQ turned off at 0500 while webcast kept on.
0520 seems to start another episode; 0530 Hillary & Bill Clinton-like voices; Bob Dole says Bob Dole is out of Viagra; Jay wants to touch Hillary [Jay was an odd character who attended Fests back then.] 0532 about the elexion and Palm Beach; going to see Allan Weiner in Tallahassee -- brief voice sounds like really him; 0535 Katherine Harris playing dominatrix; 0537 about getting Bin Laden; General TimTron in his real voice. gh asks Osama for loggings, gets shot. A.W. about Free Speech, offers Osama time on WBCQ at good price; back to Brother Scare. United Patriot Radio guy; PV`s secret weapon: Britney Spears. 0544 Franco dead over 25 years. ``From the pink and purple room of the Fiesta Motor Inn in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania`` as mentioned several times before. PV gets sex change in Sweden to Panchita, going to Iraq to look for WMD... (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0135, WTWW-2 with `Theater Organ Under The Arch`, but finished already at 0139 into Ted-ad. I`m listening via some remote since Malwarebytes blocked access to WTWW-2 webcast as dangerous, if not the homepage wtww.us. Anyhow must have started circa 0107, much earlier than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
