Glenn Hauser logs June 17, 2022

** ANTARCTICA [non]. BBCWS Midwinter special, another test prior to the real thing on June 21: *2130 June 17 on 12065, JIP normal programming, into Buenos Aires SDR, S5/S7; nothing heard on other Woofferton 9505 vs noise level, nor 6035 UAE at all; S6/S7 on 7305 Ascension. At 2138 also checked RSA remote, which should capture 6035, but none of that nor any others (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 17 at 0609, again/still no signal from VON (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri June 17 at 2208, VG into Maryland SDR, token English from REE, Amy`s feature this time is about bottled spring water from Catalunya; pass (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 17 at 2210, V of Tuerkiye is S9+35/45 into UTwente, carrier offset +2 or 3 Hz, marred only by lite hum, but the main barriers to comprehension are the accents or indistinct enunciation by the announcers. Granted, they speak English a lot better than I speak Tuerkish; but. Something`s always awry at Ankara. At tune-in, long item about World Trade Organization, but 2215 outro as having been the News; a bit of music, then `Review of the Tuerkish Press`; 2217 `Analysis` about algo; 2221 beeps and music. 2225 `Feeling Supreme` subtitled `Healthy Life` about natural sources of ----??, the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. Many foods are listed including dark chocolate. The word is mentioned countless times, sounds like ``nassition``?? I finally guess he is trying to pronounce magnesium? Looking it up, skipping the gaseous elements, potassium is #4 while magnesium is #7. 2233 music, 2237 `Did You Know That?` by another accented announcer and I never get what, tho distracted by TV news. 2244 multi-lingual ID loop but unseems the usual complete spiel; more music; 2253 English schedule at sign-off, 2254 IS cut off air before quite completed once (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 17 at 0500 via WRMI, UR1 `Ukraine: Security Issue` still repeating from six nights ago for Day 107 of the war. Meanwhile, I have caught up on all the missing editions thru June 17 = Day 114. Altho always in English, some of the other languages do not show every day, among: Polish, Belarussian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Slovak, Hungarian, Russian. The archive goes back to 18 March; when this started? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2143 monitoring: confirmed first SWBCs, UT Friday June 17 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 S9+10/35 into Missouri SDR; 7730 S9+10/15 vs HSNL into Maryland SDR; direct 5850 VG S9+10/20; 7730 also S9+10/20 but sounds much weaker to the ear.

** U S A. Tnx for tip from Richard Langley. Yes, WMLK is back. Altho suspicious carriers were heard as much as a week ago, now finally some definite modulation. Tuned 9275 at 2048, via Maryland remote, preacher in progress, S9+10/20 but noisy and shows +9/10 Hz carrier. Worse into UTwente, S5/S7 and noisy, plus 7/8 Hz.

2101 piano music and brief WMLK ID, no frequency but targeting Europe and ME. Restart another sermon by Elder Jacob O. Meyer himself - so another deadly station. Any novelty will soon wear off.

It`s the ``Sacred Name Broadcast`` as this cult is obsessed with what to call their god, as if a deity would give a damn about such pickiness. AOY website leads to a slightly outdated radio log of 10/2013 including WMLK may be off 9265 for maintenance or repairs.

Wonder if they are on full power and gain yet; if so, not very impressive. EJOM keeps rambling on about which religions are false, for the whole hour past 2123 check; improved by 2142, S9/+15 to UTwente. Nominal end is 2200 but still going at chex: 2201, 2208, 2222, but off by 2234. ID at 2203 ``You are listening to WMLK, Bethel, Pennsylvania, 9475 kHz; please stay tuned`` for yet more EJOM. I think he said 9475: I vaguely recall they may have been there before going way OOB, already in 2005 WRTH as on 9275. No matter what, we may expect them never to be on air Saturdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 17 at 0607, RV with Bislama talk, S6/S9; JBA carriers on 7890 and weaker 15780 but not 19725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
