** CHINA [and non]. 9875, Nov 28 at 2335, Firedrake jamming is mixed in with CNR1 and target (RFA Tibetan via Lithuania), first noticed about a semihour earlier. We`re lucky to hear any FD at all, let alone all by itself like in good ole days
9825, Nov 28 at 2335, no Firedrake here, just CNR1 and victim (RFA Chinese via Tinian); none in the 8s or 10s
12870, Nov 28 at 2343, very poor talk with flutter, presumably CNR1 jammer; none in the 13s
14980, Nov 28 at 2345, CNR1 jammer, poor with flutter; none in the 15s
16100, Nov 28 at 2347, CNR1 jammer, fair-good and // 14980

** EGYPT. 12035, Nov 28 at 2344, R. Cairo is JBM with humbuzz
9965, Nov 28 at 2345, R. Cairo is JBM supposedly English, no humbuzz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1510, Nov 29 at 0132 on caradio, dominant signal is Spanish, news headlines mentioning ``estado de Nuevo León`` which is more evidence it`s Monterrey`s XEQI, lacking a real ID. M&W continue conversing. This on vertical car antenna not direxional, with no nulling capability, yet this is atop WLAC, but losing out to it by 0135 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. 1521, Nov 29 at 0105 on caradio, tell-tale het upon jumble of US stations, so much 1520 QRM that KOKC is unlistenable. A direxional receiving antenna might help, but it`s probably a silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1749 monitoring: confirmed on WRMI 7570 & 15770, Friday Nov 28 at 2130.5, very good and good signals respectively.
Not confirmed at the new time Global 24 had planned, UT Saturday Nov 29 at 0401 on 9395 via WRMI --- jazz until 0405, then classical music filled instead --- again the same Bach piece with applause and 1812 Overture of Chaikofsky we heard this morning and elsewhen as default filler. Apparently they are having power outages, problems feeding scheduled programming to Okeechobee. See separate G24 log. WOR Next:
Sat 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB – this time of year one or both might be audible in northeast America as well as Europe, QRhaM permitting
Sunday 0231 on KVOH 9975
Sunday 1000 on WRMI 5850
Sunday 2300 on WRMI 11580
Monday 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395; etc.

** U S A. 9955, Nov 28 at 2311, Media Network Plus is running on WRMI in a Friday-only hour carved out from Brother Scare other days of week, tune in to interview in progress by Keith Perron with someone from Global 24, recorded shortly before they started up November 1. Explains business plan of appealing to SW audience and building up commercial backing. I think he said they have four people selling advertising fulltime. Asked about why on only one frequency 24 hours? They want to establish identity as 9395 station initially, but admit they may eventually have to change, and hope to add more and more transmitter sites as the business grows. I thought it might be Phil Workman, who has been my only contact, but outro as Jeff DeMars (spelling?). I haven`t been able to find this MN+ episode on the PCJ website yet.
Meanwhile, at same time after 23 UT on 9395 itself, `Democracy Now` is airing unlike earlier in the 15 UT hour Friday.
I asked Jeff White what is going on with Global 24 anomalies?
``Glenn: I know they are affected by those horrible ice storms up in the Northeast and I had a message a few hours ago that they are still without power. So I imagine this is the problem.``
``Jeff, Northeast?? Where are they, anyway? Address in Hollywood FL [maildrop]. A lot of background info on G24 is lacking. 73, Glenn``
``They have operations in several locations, but I think programming is coming out of somewhere in the Northeast. Jeff`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1530, Nov 29 at 0153 UT on caradio, string of ads with AC 501- phone numbers, mentioning Little Rock. Also may listen on Smartphone via tune-in to KVDW; ID as ``Z 100.9 and AM 1530``. Not sure about the Z. It`s obviously the station listed in NRC AM Log as KVDW, England AR, 2500 watts daytime non-direxional and no PSSA, // K265EO, 100.9, ``Victory 1530``, UC:GOS/REL format. England is just southeast of Little Rock. Another daytimer on late and thus DXable despite all the other cheaters and WCKY. I thought the translator might be in Little Rock itself, but FCC FM Query shows it too in England with 250 watts, and a CP MOD to put it in Stuttgart with only 50 watts --- that doesn`t make sense as Stuttgart is twice as far from Poca Roca than England is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM. 9840, Nov 28 at 2332, news in English, poor signal, from? Vietnamese clip gives VOV away (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
