** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, Oct 31 at 0044, pirate music S5-S6 into same Georgia SDR I had for WRMI/WOR check earlier. Too much else is going on Saturday nights to keep with it, but almost-Hallowe`en should lead to increased piracy. 0109 recheck, now SSTV beepery until 0111*. WOR iog member Bob Butterfield in Columbia, Maryland was also monitoring and says this was Wolverine Radio. Many more logs here including the cheesecake SSTV:,88420.0.html It was a Hallowe`en show but not keyed to a specific word (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Oct 31 at 0045, only other pirate audible is here, loud rockmusic S4-S5, but gone by 0050. Bob Butterfield also reports this, as Outhouse Radio. Many more logs here including several fuzzy SSTVs:,88417.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sun Oct 31 at 0703 I am unfortunately still awake so check all the RHC 49m frequencies for weekly Esperanto show, supposedly on this one, but it and all others are off. Presumably from next week with DST just over, the nominal time will be 0800 UT Sundays. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, Oct 31 at 1426, noise jamming against nothing, as Radio Martí has just made its habitual and totally predictable B-season switch to 13820 where it`s VG with no jamming audible. The incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command are always playing catch-up, eventually (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sun Oct 31 at 1509, RHC weekly Esperanto confirmed still here, S9/+10 but undermodulated; // 11760 even less modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Presumably these go to 1600 Sundays from next week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7390, Oct 31 at 1427, music S9+10 with flutter, presumed RNZI on its new B-21 frequency. This is advantageous for us N American outliers, holds up longer and further into dayside than any 49mb frequency. Schedule on 7390 is 1259-1650 except Sat to 1758, the day off for DRM. Reactivated 11725 also audible after 0700 but only fair. It now runs 0659-1258 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 18, 62-7 KOPX, Oct 31 at 0445 UT, I see a new subchannel ``Newsy``. I had not noticed a -7 until I saw it mentioned on OKCtalk. It`s owned by Scripps, supposedly no-frills all-news, originally a pay-cable channel, but changed to OTA, not cable at all, rolled out Oct 1 on ION subchannels which Scripps now owns, and per already in a whole lot of markets including majors, not least #50, OKC. But does it have a default far-right agenda like OAN, Newsmax, even the disappointing NewsNation out of WGN? Will have to watch it some, or find some reviews. Here`s their asserted plan: (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Oct 31 at 1510, REE now on B-21 frequencies including this for N America, but of course it`s a JBA carrier over full-day path and should be on 11, 13 or even 15 MHz band before descending after dark. 11940 for S America is also JBA carrier; 11670 to Africa slightly better JBA and not on 11685; but best by far for us is reactivated 12030, S9/+10 off the back toward Mideast; disposable anyway now in stupid sports talk. M/W/F English will now be at 2300 UT ex-2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 341-MCW kHz, Oct 31 at 0647 UT, ND beacon DNI, 25 watts from Sherman/Denison TX on the wrong side of the River Red; still in absence of EI Enid, and of its usual #2, OIN Oberlin KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2110 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
October 30 starting at 1957 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, only S5-S7 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Sat Oct 30 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+22/27 into Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sun Oct 31 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good direct.

Also confirmed UT Sun Oct 31 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 11 minutes into so started circa 0316. S9+8 but ACI de LSB with band full of contesters including 1866-LSB K3LR CQ Contest, and someone on 1856-LSB.

Also confirmed Sun Oct 31 at 1330.5 on WMRI Europe via Channel 292, Germany, 9670, already a sesquiminute into so started early at 1329. S8-S9 into UTwente, not as good as before when at 1230, but propagation is probably degraded today. Worse, there is heavy ACI from 9665 with CRI Russian S9+15, no doubt via EAST TURKISTAN but no such transmission found in A-21 or B-21 schedules; tho EiBi shows CNR5 Cross-Strait Radio long before and after this hour. Need to tune USB to lessen it a bit, but also China radio war continues on 9680, S9+20. Maybe Ireland be at a better skip distance? Galway SDR gets it no better, 9670 weaker at S6-S8, but ACI also weaker. 9670 is aimed toward N America, so how about Maryland SDR? It is JBA S4/S5 but hardly sufficient on 9 MHz over a full-day path. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy [ex-2000]
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE {pre-empted Oct 31}
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW; 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
0230 UT Monday WRN webcast, expected ex-0130

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. Re `AAAWWW` on WBCQ Oct 30, John Carver replies: ``Glenn, Reading through your log postings today and seeing my report in print, it occurs to me that I left something out. The second time Allan started talking about the superstation and how well it was working, Angela reminded him that they still could not change the antenna configuration. Allan said that was true but what they were using now was working just fine. Sorry. John, Mid-North Indiana`` I reply:

```John, OK, but don`t be sorry. I remember hearing that part myself but did not note it down. But I`m not sure exactly what ``antenna configuration`` mean. Obviously they are rotating it again. Maybe means stuck on one frequency only. 73, Glenn``` -- and John replies:

``Well sir. I could be wrong but wasn't one of the selling points of the antenna was that it could be configured as several different dipoles, a single radiator, a curtain array etc. I'm not really a tech guy and it's been a long time since I heard someone explain the antenna's different functions so am sucking most of it out of my thumb. I just assumed that was what was meant by can't change configuration. John`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), Oct 30 at 2354, WTWW-2 webcast once again has already started `Theater Organ Under the Arch`, not music now but presumed George Wright talking about his early organic experiences; music after 0000 Oct 31, but 0030 recheck, now with heavily percussed jazz in $ so TOUTA is over already, not an hour long or started way earlier?
