Tuesday, September 08 2020

** BRAZIL. 11780, September 7 at 2329, RNA is S9/+20 with suptorted
music, while modulation is OK on // 6180 but only S7-S9. Then full ID
not mentioning 6180, but 980, 11780 and a few more AM/FM frequencies
of R Nacional in other cities. I keep seeing logs of 11780 by others
taking no note of the awful modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Sept 7 at 1355-1400: none in the
16s, 15s, 14s, 13s, 12s, 11s until: 11170 JBA carrier. By now it is
almost 1400 so will it cut off air as typical then? Yes (Glenn Hauser,

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Sept 7 at 2336: None in the 17s,
13s, 12s, 11s, or 10s, but just in the current LUHF/MUF window: 14690
Chinese with flutter S3-S5; 14980 CC JBA S1; 15840 CC S2 vs buzz;
15870 JBA carrier; 16100 CC JBA vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7380, Sept 7 circa 2315, RHC English for Africa is still
AWOL; not on previously used 9720 or 11880 either. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 8 at 0034, R. Progreso is still gone. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670 & 6070, Sept 7 at 2125, Uncle Bill`s special via
Channel 292 is in progress but no signals on these at UTwente; 3955
has a poor S6-S7, insufficient for easy listening; at this time talk
and Cuban music; 2133 FTIOM announcement; 2138 must have proceeded to
UBMP with banjo; 2146 John of VORW is a bit more readable mentioning
this Ch. 292 special; 2150 ``Betty Davis Eyes``; 2157 Bill`s closing
announcement has an echo, problem or SFX? 2200 brief German
announcement which still pronounces station name in English, and off.
By end was slightly stronger (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 389-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0611 UT, ND beacon DDP, 1000
watts from San Juan - Dorado (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday Sept 7 at 2203, REE English has not been
canceled: Alison Hughes is back, after hours of dead air on Friday.
Quick check on UTwente which altho reading S9+20, is not good for 9690
due to heavy ChiCom ACI from 9685. She`s interviewing someone stuck in
their apartment, quarantined I guess (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 7 at 2202, poor JBA S5 signal at UTwente; I
guess VOT is on but normally is blasting in to that SDR (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 359-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0613 UT, ND beacon SDR, which is 25
watts from Snyder, Texas; tough copy with QRM, QSB; note there is a
SDY in Sidney, Montana, 100 watts.

281-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0620 UT, NDB DMO, 25 watts from Sedalia,
Missouri (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2050 monitoring: confirmed Monday
September 7 from 1800:42 on IRRS 7290-AM via Bulgaria; tune-in at 1755
to weak carrier; 1755.4 cut on stronger carrier; 1758.8 cut on
modulation of rock song; 1759.9 sign-on falsely claiming this is in
reduced-carrier SSB mode best tuned in synchronous USB; Feature Story
News headlines, then WOR. Continues OK past 1805; recheck closing to
1829:38 when I am cut off after ``...as I end with a ----`` [standard
disclaimer]. All this via UTwente at S9+20 with constant plus/minus 10
splash no matter what the bandwidth; but the 7291 RTTY warble is not

** U S A. 7490.06, Monday Sept 7 at 2317, WBCQ playing African music;
o yes, UB announces Timbuktu, Mali, so this is a bonus broadcast of
UBMP, 25 hours after the original which I already heard Sunday at
2200. This has happened before, but I don`t think UB has mentioned it,
as cannot be relied upon. Sked shows Available Time Slot at 2300
Mondays but for only a semihour, so did `Camp Constitution Radio`
interrupt it at 2330? Anyhow it`s back to Bill after 0000 UT Tuesday
for FTIOM in its regular slot, by now VG S9/+10.

(7490), UT Tue Sept 8 at 0213 tune-in to Uncle Bill`s Labor Day
special `WBCQ Works` presenting his and other programs; for this at
the computer I have switched to webcast, which lately has been
slow-starting, but Larry has not terminated it yet. Now in ``Old Time
Religion`` gospel tune with parody lyrix, but I could not understand
the new title. Then some Weird Al, ``Dog Eat Dog``; 0223 over to Sir
Jack Scratchy of `Behaviour Night`; 0234 `Lost Discs Radio Show`. Each
plugs WBCQ and the times their shows are mainly heard. 0245
cosmikdebris reverb and Jane but I don`t hear a program name, 0258 UB
wrapping up offering special eQSL for reports to a gmail address I
missed. There will be another one of these around Thanksgiving (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 8 at 0015, 0033 chex, VOV is still
missing from WHRI relay when it should be in English, Spanish, so has
it been totally canceled? WHRI itself is still programming on 5920 at
0022; and by 0212 on 7315. I want to see what program sked now shows,
but website won`t display them any more, unless I am being misdirected
to wrong pages, where you may only search schedules if you enter all
the data correctly --- but they go nowhere. The streaming page of
Angels 1, 2 and 6 is also dead. Maybe they are winding down for the
big sale to WBCQ?

This page displays the new VOV logo! Yet schedule info is dated 2013!
It also says VOV was founded on Sept 7, 1945, so happy anniversary!
Nothing found there about WHRI or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4940, Sept 8 at 0105, JBA signal at Bonaire TWR SDR, and
at 0337 JBA carrier; like last night, unlike Saturday night = UT
Sunday when Spanish gospel with no IDs was inbooming there. Bryan
Clark was also hearing it in NZ, and discussed with Mauno Ritola,
noting Colombian content, so related to LV Conciencia? But no IDs
either. They make no mention of R San Antonio, Peru, which as I
pointed out was active in August on 4940. Seems to me that Fuerza de
Paz would either be using the Peruvian or got it to agree to cede the
frequency. Bryan`s Sept 7:

``The apparently new South American on 4939.996 gave reasonable
reception here around 0630 to 0715 UTC today - I noted it weakly
around 0530 and followed it past 0800 but the clearest signal was
around 0645 when they had some form of radio drama. It didn`t seem
overtly religious in nature and the Latin rhythms heard later weren't
reminiscent of an evangelical broadcaster to my ears anyway.

Have attached an audio file in case you can hear something that
clearly identifies the station, so would welcome any feedback.
Mailing addresses in Costa Rica and Bolivia are given. Interestingly
my reception here in northern NZ was better than what I could find from
Kiwi SDRs in Bonaire, Colombia and Chile. 73, Bryan`` (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. 5010, Sept 7 at 0634, open carrier of S9/+10/20. Likely
WRMI-14 for some reason, supposed to be off the air 0230-1100 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11101-USB, Sept 7 at 1359, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
encountered during my CNR1 jammer survey (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
