All Times UTC



7470 UNITED STATES (Pirate) YHWH at 0345. Checking the frequency, nothing heard. A couple minutes later, I find Josiah on with the Yahweh lecture with a few burnt offerings thrown in. Just before 0400, signal dipped way down and there were some OTH-R radar pulses jackhammering on the channel. (I should note here, as I have been monitoring this frequency a lot, Over-The-Horizon-Radar pulses turn up here quite frequently). Creepy Days of Hard Life song at 0431. Signed off at 0434 with a lot of "I Love You"s. More OTHR pulses after the close. Fair/Good with long deep fades. Sept 29 (Barton-AZ)

YHWH 7470, Oct 4 at 0245, JBA speech from Station YHWH, 0249 seems off, 0254 seems on. Next check at 0603, surprised to find him still/again on, very late, and much better at S9+10, now can understand his diatribe including: was former Christian for 40 years, 53-page document, tens of millions of Christians have been fooled into believing in that so-called god, Jesus. 0606 playing his notorious ``creepy tune, Days of Hard Life``, but cut at 0608 for under modulated closing, ID as YHWH, hello to someone in California, I love you, and pulls plug immediately (Hauser-OK)
