Glenn Hauser logs September 24-25, 2021

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer search, Sept 24 at 1347: 12850 JBA Chinese; 13130 & 13190 JBA carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Sept 24 at 2200, token English from REE is only S6-S9 here; 11940 second in strength S6-S8 but distorted again/still; 15520 S3-S5 and 11670 even worse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2105 monitoring: confirmed first broadcasts on WRMIs, UT Friday September 24 at 0130: 5850 VG S9+20/30 direct; 7780 S9+10 but sounds much weaker and noisier.

Also confirmed UT Fri Sept 24 at 0330 on WRMI 5985, S7-S9 somewhat noisy into Bonaire, preceded by IS & ID loop until ``top of the hour`` [not]; WOR playback on this one sounds slightly reverbed.

Also confirmed Fri Sept 24 at 1815 on IRRS via Italia AM 918 kHz, VG S9+25 into nearby Noale SDR; tuned in at 1811 during a COVID discussion about nurses on strike at St. Vincent hospital, Massachusetts, which was chopped off in progress for quick IRRS ID and WOR. Supposed to be // 7290 IRRS monitored on UTwente: its carrier was on by 1811, S9/+10, but modulation not turned on until 1816 as the WOR theme and billboard were almost finished. I hope they both stayed with WOR until it finished.

Also confirmed on 918 only, Fri Sept 24 at 2030, as above but now with slight music undercurrent QRM, Spain? This one also interrupted another talk program in American accent about T****. Now that we`re on 918 Friday at 1815 already, it might be more diverse to move the 2030 replay from Friday to Saturday, if feasible. Next:

** U S A. 7489.9v, Fri Sept 24 at 2207, WBCQ S7-S9 with rock music before and after a brief transmitter break; 2221 bluegrass; despite schedule showing `Tom Call Theater` this hour after `Behaviour Night` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.9v, UT Sat Sept 25 at 0000, WBCQ with `AAAWWW` -- first I try webcasts of 7490 and // Area 51, but the theme and interjexions are into the red, overmodulating/distorting, so I bring up 7489.9 on Maryland SDR where the audio is axually better tho still too loud. The whole hour is a rant. First against people buried in their devices even at New Smyrna Beach. Says they drove the 1800 miles from Monticello to Deland of Fla --- well, the air distance is only 1398 miles, so they must have made a lot of detours. 0026-0039 reading a long propaganda piece about T****`s alleged achievements compared to ``puppet`` Biden. Gets in a dig at the government for trying to silence free speech on WBCQ. Recommends watching old B&W TV shows from the 60s where the good guys always won, such as `Combat`. 0054 finally datestamp as 24 of Sept, YOOLF 2021, at Studio 9 in Florida, on 7490 and 6160. Angela gets to do the prayer, 0101 over to Hal Turner. John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Over the theme music Allan says, Hey, get your guns. Allan and Angela in the studio in Fla. Opening talk about the number of young people seen riding bicycles on the beach with one hand on the handlebars and the other hand holding a device which they were watching instead of looking around them. Some talk about their midnight run to Fla and the number of distracted drivers on the road using their phones or watching TVs in the vehicles. Allan reads a piece about Biden which morphs into a pro Trump piece listing all of his alleged accomplishments at 0027. Pro Trump talk continues after the reading is finished. Then some talk about the "great filter". Reading of emails at 0054. Closing prayer at 0059 was given by Angela. Program was off the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Sept 24 at 0155, WRNO is back *on* with gospel huxter in English: I check it just as the WOR guy on 5850 mentions it being off for two sesquiweeks as of Sept 21. S9+30 but distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Even without COVID we have not been traveling much, let alone overseas. If that is your case, you might want to armchair-travel via some of the regular shows on the PBS Create channel. In OK it`s OETA-3, but not on Suddenlink cable. Fortunately, we can usually get it off the air from KETA-13. I assume most PBS stations carry it on one of their subchannels, whether or not cable systems comply. Streaming may be available somewhere, either from PBS stations or from individual program websites you could search out. OETA confines its live streaming to main PBS channel only.

Here are such shows on the following typical week`s schedule, each repeated several times; and as evergreens, some of them may be years old, before anyone would mask. My most often seen/favorite ones are atop:

Rick Steves' Europe [mostly; date produced always shows at end]
Samantha Brown's Places to Love
Born to Explore with Richard Wiese
Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope
Two for the Road

Canvasing The World with Sean Diediker
Painting and Travel with Roger & Sarah Bansemer
Seeing The USA
Cycle Around Japan Highlights
Journeys In Japan
Let's Go, Minnesota! (Hometown Create)
Outside: Beyond The Lens
Passion Italy

A couple more are only on the PBS World channel:

The Good Road
Colorado Experience

There are some others which focus on cuisine in different countries. Create topix mostly include do-it-yourself, crafts, gardening, painting, cooking, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK)
