Hauser Update

Saturday, November 21 2020

** CHINA [and non]. 7545, Nov 21 at 1353, two Chinese stations mixing
at almost same level, i.e. CNR1 jamming and VOA Mandarin via
PHILIPPINES at 1300-1500. The ChiCom obviously have no shame, no sense
of fairness, as USA allows CRI in unimpeded via CUBA on SW and even on
domestic AM/FM stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 21 at 1523, CRI English relay at S9+30 but
undermodulated and hummy. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba but
USA would never dream of jamming it, unlike vice versa (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 9700, Nov 21 at 0714, RHC English is still on here at S6-S9,
better than // 6000; so supposed to run until 0800? But Ivo Ivanov
says it cut off at 0735* and 6000 at 0710*[?]. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

BTW, I missed it, but several others caught RHC on 6950 around 1400
Nov 21, which looks like a keypad punchup error by sloppyrator for new
9650 at 1200-1600, which was not to be heard. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** PRIDNESTROVYE. 11530, Nov 21 at 1527, Dengê Welat at S5-S8 in
presumed Kurdish with long/short path echo. Annoying as it may be, a
sign of improving propagation when a signal reach us both ways.
Assuming this is not the Turkish jammer, distance from Grigoriopol`,
Moldova to Enid is 5805 statute miles short, so long path 24900 minus
5805 = 19185. Difference between 19185 and 5805 is 13380 miles. At
lightspeed of 186 kmiles/second, the echo delay computes to 0.072
second, or about one fourteenth of a second. Sounds about right (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 404-MCW kHz, Nov 21 at 0725, ND beacon XCR, which is 25
watts from Little Falls - Camp Ripley, Minnesota, between St. Cloud
and Bemidji in central MN. I was tuned to 402-USB. New log here (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21220-USB, Nov 21 at 1918, KA2ABA in western New York,
Steve, calling CQ after a contact with California. DXMAP shows
sporadic E MUF over central USA up to 25 MHz, but that may have been
double hop. 1919 contacts WC6H in Valley Springs, also audible here
circa midpoint. OSOB until algo on 21300-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18158-USB, Nov 21 at 1922, N4UT calling for check-ins before
a 1930 net, but what? Calls from all over US, widely variable
strengths. Retry 1947 finally names it, ``Ole Miss 17 meter net``. 26
stations are on the work-list, he will run thru so each may call
another. More at omiss.net. N4UT admits he is in Virginia. Is this for
alumni, or what? Apparently nothing to do with Oxford, rather stands
for OM International Sideband Society. Does this mean YLs are
excluded? Apparently for expediting award-chasing such as WAS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 17700, Nov 21 at 1924, huge S9+20/30 signal
slightly overmod/distorted in French with heavy African accent, got to
be VOA Grimesland NC - not noticed before but in B-20 HFCC for one
hour daily at 1900-2000, 250 kW almost due east and plenty to the
west. Also a lite long-path echo which is getting close to the max
from a site short-path so close. Soon to interviewer speaking proper

Is it // 15730? Seems same but far out of synch and much weaker,
chopping off at 1928*. 17700 still going past 1930 but with a program
change. Then I find 15730 back on much stronger than before, S9+20 and
now it is in synch with 17700; discussion about Burkina Faso. Yes,
15730 makes a site switch from BOTSWANA to GB at 1930, but it is
anything but smooth (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November
21 at 1327 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, S8-S9 but poor here. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Sat Nov 21 at 1529.5, WRMI-3 with edited classic WNYW
ID mentioning SW target countries including United Arab Republic: the
union of Syria and Egypt which lasted only 1958-1961y altho Wikipedia
elucidates: ``a sovereign state in the Middle East from 1958 to 1971.
It was initially a political union between Egypt (including the
occupied Gaza Strip) and Syria from 1958 until Syria seceded from the
union after the 1961 Syrian coup d'état  —  leaving a rump state.
Egypt continued to be known officially as the United Arab Republic
until 1971``.

At 1530, 9955 starts in Spanish, but immediately blasted away by
switch to Brother Hystairical incomprehensible rant, as TOMBS is
extended Sabbathdays only past 1500 on several other frequencies for
live disservice until 1700; yet sked is contradictory about 9955,
still showing 1500-1530 S&S as `Full Gospel Hour`, with Blalock the
Blaster, but I just missed confirming whether he was really still
Touretting before 1529. Skedgrid also shows besides the daily TOMBS
frequencies 1700-2100, 5800 also stays on Saturdays only. Confirmed at
1800 via TWR Key West KiwiSDR, *much* better than JBA 5950 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 11252-USB, Nov 21 at 1342-1345*, 2-way in
Spanish, reception good enough from both sides, but I can`t figure out
what they are talking about, and wonder if even a native speaker
could. Light QRM from VOLMET by YL on 11253-USB, which is getting a
lot more QRM from this, i.e. RAF somewhere in UK (Glenn Hauser, OK,
