Glenn Hauser logs May 12-13, 2019

Tuesday, May 14 2019

** CANADA [and non]. 341 kHz, May 13 at 0544 UT, ND beacon YYU and
dash, which is 500 watts from Kapuskasing, Ontario; mixing with and
weaker than local co-channel EI Enid, but with different pitches and
periods, not hard to copy separately. No sign of OIN Oberlin KS, which
I was also getting during last log April 4. Storm noise level not so
bad tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CONGO. 6115, May 13 from 0525 past 0536 I keep checking for carrier
from Brazzaville, but none of it. On May 3, Ron Howard heard it
suddenly come on at *0533 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, May 13 at 0537, RHC is in Spanish instead of English,
which is nominally here at 0500-0600. Something`s always wrong at RHC

** CUBA. 13739.289, May 13 at 1347, RHC S9+10 and auto-knocked off-
frequency again today. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

** KOREA NORTH. 11710, May 13 at 1354, VOK is S8-S9 with self-jamming
noise, closing English to North America reciting this and some other
transmissions, to Europe and NE Asia, but not all of them. Also on
weaker // 9435; 11735 is also on in Chinese. Other days hardly any
signal at all and wonder if it`s transmission-caused, propagation-
caused, or some of both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, May 13 at 0525, S8-S9 music, drums, maybe IS loop? And
Afrosongs; even with LSB tuning, splatter from 6000 RHC even tho
undermodulated as usual. Surely it`s prÃlude from ORTM turning
transmitter on earlier than nominal 0555. WRTH shows domestic service
even on FM is not 24 hours, also opening at *0555 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** SPAIN. 12030, May 13 at 2258, REE with ME music, presumably
rounding out the Arabic service, but transmitter cuts off and back on
several times. ID and 2200 starting English, but now cuts off and
stays off, while English remains on the other three, 11940, 11670 and
9690. It`s supposed to continue on 12030 too.

REE English this Monday starts with ten minutes of Justin Coe talking
about some silly ballgame (tennis) in excruciating detail, including
SFX of balls being racketed; at 2210 finally changes to some rock band
from New York he`s enamored of. News? What news? Obviously nothing of
any consequence is happening in Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** TURKEY. 9830, May 13 at 2200-2210, no show from VOT English to
North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1981 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov reports
presumably 1981: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on
7265 CUSB, May 12:
1031-1100 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, weak signal``

Also confirmed here Sunday May 12 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA S2-S4.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 13 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, fair S6-S7

Also confirmed UT Monday May 13 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair S9; upcut
after first three words, ``Hauser ---``.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 13 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast; and on
WBCQ 5130.4v, fair S9+10 at 0327 check

Also confirmed UT Monday May 13 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10 after
music fill, no ID. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [2 editions]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 9955, May 13 at 1358, WRMI fill music, 1359.5 Zanotti ID cut
off incomplete before he can utter the address, about 10 seconds
before 1400*. WRMI automation is often out of alignment. Was checking
this since on Friday May 10, 9955 stayed on past 1400 contrary to
weekday schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 13 at 0521 open carrier at S9, slight fades to
S8; same as heard before, May 10 at 0613. Such a signal in the
nightmiddle is likely to be from circa North America, or maybe Pacific
like good signal again from 9700 NZ. Maybe a ute; or Cuban spy number
station not known to have been on 9200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
