Glenn Hauser logs October 28, 2021

** ARMENIA. 13690, Oct 28 at 1414, TWR IS, 1415 opening some language, mentions Afghanistan, S7/S9+10 with flutter, pretty good next to 13700 Cuba. It`s TWR ``India`` in Hindi M-F (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 13954.5-USB, Oct 28 at 1418, frenetic radio-chex by multiple ham-like contesters, calls heard or fonetikaly mentioned including: CA04, CA67, LV127, CA262, CA302, US90, AF103. Encountered by chance but one of multiple frequencies in use during Exercise Noble Skywave, sponsored by Canadian Forces; see which explains:

`` About Noble Skywave --- Since 2013, the Canadian Communications and Electronics branch has brought hundreds of teams from dozens of Nations together to test, strengthen expertise and compete in a friendly atmosphere to what is now known as the most Prestigious military led HF competition in the world: Noble Skywave. Noble Skywave acquired its “letters of nobility” through highly skilled and proud participating teams which are either HAM/CFARS/MARS or Military Radio Operators around the globe. As the Leading Nation for this event, the Canadian Armed Forces are committed to provide the best possible training experience to all participants and is looking forward again this year to crown the best HF Radio Operators in the world.``

Apparently it`s a free-for-all to rack up as many contacts as possible. I find locations of a couple them on their map:
CA262 in Ontario just SE of Lake Huron near Barrie;
CA302 in Regina SK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2110)
