Glenn Hauser logs June 26-27, 2021

** ITALY. 18125-USB, June 26 at 2050, IZ2ZSF calling QRZ North America, one of only three phone signals on band but I stay with this one with an accent who must be extracontinental; of course Spain is blasting in on 17855 with silly ballgame.

Via G.Capra, 12, 26040 Gussola
No paper QSL, IT

Hi, I'm Stefano, I was born in 1980 and in 2013 I got my ham license. My qth is in a small village in the countryside of CREMONA, in the center of the Po valley, a few hundred meters from the biggest Italian river (Po river). My facebook page``

Panoramic aerial photo of the town; and of his antennas and rigs, of course at: (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, June 27 at 0049, pirate music at S9/+10 including storm noise, probably Wolverine Radio; yes: convenient two-word ID interjected at 0051 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW kHz, June 26 at 2042 UT, ND 25-watt beacon EI at Woodring Airport, Enid, reconfirmed on the air but JBA at near-local range (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, June 26 at 2043 UT, 25 watt NDB PN at PoNca City is back on the air! I tune across here almost every night, and it`s been gone until now checked in the daytime, vs storm noise. Last logged July 30, 2020 but not noticed missing until August 11. however says it was last logged September 3. Before July there had been other outages. It had been reported from many states but hardly any of their listings come from OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15185, June 26 at 2054, surprised to find VOA in English, S9+25. Interview with a YL university student from Central African Republic who has lived in WDC for seven years. Hostess asks her to ``slow down``. Refers to keeping gender info off business cards, but optional to title herself Ms. Deep selective fading, maybe sporadic E, and marred by audio dropouts. Is it that tough to get a reliable feed from Washington to Grimesland? 2057 reverts to French, this having been LL called ``Anglais - Télé``, so a TV spot? 15185 runs weekends only for this semi-hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2092 monitoring: confirmed Saturday June 26 at 1800 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria and 918 kHz MW via Italy. Monitored on UTwente SDR and Noale SDR respectively simultaneously; disregarding internet delays: 918 tune-in at 1753 during music, S9+16 weaker than usual at local range, and undermodulated? At 1758:49 it switches to Aïda theme as it starts, for about a minute and brief IRRS sign-on, pause, and WOR starts. 7290 S9+25 open carrier with warble on upper side, stays on until 1759:49, abruptly joining Aïda in progress. As WOR gets underway it`s received about 5 seconds later on 7290 than on 918.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 27 from 0320 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO. Heavy storm noise direct; nearby KB0FX SDR is offline. Audible on KS SDR and Muscatine IA SDR. Next:
