Good reception, some noise.  Hausa service broadcasting Bundesliga football.   This is fourth or fifth consecutive year that DW has extended Hausa service on Saturdays to broadcast the Bundesliga.

1538 OM doing play by play, second OM appears to add infrequent commentary.  I have not been able to identify match yet from team words, players or words that I might recognize.

This CW transmission to mark 100th anniversary of cross Atlantic testing will be broadcast from the Radio Museum https://www.vrcmct.org that I have visited many times including for swaps.  Next quarterly swap is Dec. 4.  Certificates are available for decoding message.

Transmission info:

29 NOV 2021, Good reception but much noise due to urban environment in Cleveland.  Testing continues.....

1504 YL with recorded message about upcoming test at 08 UTC after hour
1508 YL with announcement of upcoming test, I believe this is new, series of noises similiar to earlier post.

Most nights I will doze (and awaken and doze again) to the broadcast of the BBC World Service's overnight programming by a local FM NPR station (in this instance, WCPN 90.3 Cleveland).  While half asleep early today (0730 UTC, 29 NOV 2021), the BBC World Service went to a looped tape mentioning technical problems.  The tape was played over a wide variety of instrumental world music.  Nick Robinson returned just before 0800 UTC to explain that an emergency alarm went off and they had left the building.  Several other BBC channels must have went off the air per the article.

2058 YL's were in English, YL and OM now in foreign language (Station is multicultural/multilinguistic)
