Glenn Hauser logs October 24-25, 2020

Sunday, October 25 2020

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday October 25 at 0720, RHC in weekly Esperanto
still here - tho missing last week per wb. S9+20 with hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. B-20 changes not there for a couple weeks, post
timezone shift in a week, as a Running Dog of Yanqui Imperialism,
coördinated with USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5959.923v: See NETHERLANDS [non] and TURKEY

** FRANCE. 7245, Oct 25 at 0620, Qur`an at S7-S8, something new next
to 7255 Nigeria. HFCC B-20 shows it`s RFI this hour, 500 kW at 170
degrees, multilingual across Africa. But I cannot believe RFI would be
Qur`aning. ALGERIA would be, but B-20 scheduled this hour only on 6105
for Issoudun relay, plus own imaginaries (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 6165, Oct 25 at 0625, M&W in Arabic, S9/+10. It`s NHK
via FRANCE this semihour, 500 kW at 140 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Oct 24 at *2359 shortly after TURKEY has
closed, fortunately, rather than another spurious hour in German,
which they have not done lately; Nauen carrier for The Mighty farty
KBC weekly UT Sunday 00-02 to NAm has come on, making LAH with
Xinjiang PBS, Urumqi, now scheduled to start at 2330, and always
off-frequency minus. In AMSynch mode, UTwente SDR locates that on
5959.923v, and stays locked to it rather than Nauen closer to 5960.00;
levels are roughly equal. I was hearing XPBS as early as 2356 when
Turkey went off and unseemed Mandarin until 2358; at 0000, 5+1
timesignal as KBC is also signing on. At 0006 October 25 I check
direct reception here and hear only KBC, so that`s what matters to
them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNIDENTIFIED: 6925-USB, Oct 25 at 0007, weak S3-S5
pirate music. More logs of this as unID, no guesses:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 12055, Oct 25 at 1352, S7-S9 tonal
language. B-20 USAGM via TINian now scheduled 1330-1430 in
Myanmarianese. WEWN Spanish not on 12050 yet till 5970 change at

9390, Oct 25 at 1402, weak Chinese? No longer Thailand in English here
which has moved to 9940; HFCC shows 9390 this hour be USAGM in zho =
Chinese via TINIAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. RRI B-20 scheduling checked ASAP UT Oct 25, tuning UTwente
for English to North America one hour later: 0105, VG S9+30 on 7325 &
6130; 0452 at Maine SDR: 6020 VG and 7410 good but latter with noise
out to 7405 and 7415, residual Cuban jamming? (Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Oct 24 at 2344, VOT English to NAm has already made
B-20 seasonal change to 2300 on 5960 instead of 2200 on 9830. HFCC
seasons nominally start at 0100 UT Sundays, but it`s already Oct 25 in
Turkey --- first log of the season! Via UTwente SDR, Turkish music at
S9+10/20; 2349 ID, more music; 2354 YL canned sign-off as if it were
still A-20 at 1230 on 15450!! A bit more IS and now I can hear CCI
making a LAH from off-frequency-minus Xinjiang PBS Urumqi, East
Turkistan, land of cultural genocide by the ChiCom imperialists
against the Uyghurs. Continued at NETHERLANDS [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY. 6125, Oct 25 at 0403, VOT English to W North America
confirmed at new B-20 time and frequency, news to 0405, then that
COVID-19 PSA and music. Checked via Maine SDR, where there is noise in
the 6120-6130 range, presumed still Cuban jamming against Martí which
finishes 6125 in B-20 at 0400, too close for comfort! 0400 is the
final repeat of the original now 1330 UT VOT English; make that

Speaking of which, Oct 24 circa 1323, had a JBA carrier on the last
day of the real 15450 broadcast from 1230. Oct 25 at 1352, B-20
reactivation of 12035 from 1330 bears JBA music, not enough yet; aimed
for Europe but we be directly beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2057 monitoring: not checked Sat
Oct 24 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, since sked shows without notice it has
been replaced.

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Oct 25 at 0017, WTWW-2 starting `TOUTA`,
distorted as usual here but this week I bring up the $ tereo webcast.
Bob Heil is playing recordings of deceased colleagues` performances,
including some pre-echo audible during a pause, which means it`s
print-thru on a reel-to-reel tape. 0048 as soon as some applause
start, WTWW hastily cuts to ID and back to rock music, whew! Enough of
that theatre organ stuff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5945, Oct 25 at 1356 and 1448, JBA carrier as I am
hunting for RNZI in B-20. HFCC shows something from UZBEKISTAN for Pan
American [sic] Broadcasting, like Tony Alamo? at 13-14 but on day 7 =
Saturday only and this is Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6170.090, Oct 25 at 1355 and still 1448, JBA
off-frequency carrier as I hunt for RNZI, which I later find from 1259
has moved from 6170 to 6115 as of October 26. Tentative B-20 HFCC even
shows Bangladesh at 13-14 on 6170! Most likely this be KOREA NORTH,
VOK with PBS relay to Europe as per Arnulf`s B-20 schedule (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
