Glenn Hauser logs November 4-5-6, 2020

Friday, November 06 2020

Note: about a dekaday after the icestorm, my main antenna to the R75,
~100 foot E-W-ish longwire, has been restored circa 1930 UT Nov 4. But
line noise level is too high around here.

** CANADA. 248-MCW kHz, Nov 5 at 0704 UT, dash and WG, the NDB from
Winnipeg with quite a strong 1 kW signal like PR on 391; but no
rarities from elsewhere in Canada; weak 250-watt, 413-MCW, YHD from
Dryden, Ont (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Nov 5 at 1441, none in the WOOB 13s, 12s
or 10s, but weak Chinese on 11120, JBA carriers on 11440, 11460 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 4 at 2019, RHC first English of the day confirmed
usual non-DST shift to one UT hour later from 2000, VG S9+20 with OK
modulation altho often not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2059)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 5 at 0644, RHC English again on this frequency
instead of erroneous 5910 23 hours ago, // 6145 and 5040 also on an
hour later than in summer, all with OK modulation but 6000 is
suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2059)

** CUBA. 13638 & 13763 approx., Nov 5 at 1433, RHC Spanish extremely
distorted FMish spurblobs with F# tones are back! after quite a spell
missing, about S9 out of even stronger fundamental 13700. But only
trace of further multiples circa 13566, 13826, 13886.

Nov 5 at 1520 I blobcheck again: approx. 13763 but much weaker on
13638, while 13700 is S9+10/20 with good modulation. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2059)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 5 at 1518, RHC `Sonido Cubano` music is ruined by
suptorted modulation out of this S9+20; // 15230 is relatively OK,
just undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391-MCW kHz, Nov 5 at 0703 UT, NDBeacon DDP with
strong 1-kW signal all the way from Dorado, like that from 248 WG
Winnipeg. I was tuned to 389 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
