Tuesday, August 10 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Monday August 9 at 1502 check, no
signal from LRA36 into two Brazilian SDRs. Had been active last 5
days, Wed-Thu-Fri-Sat-Sun (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Re decommissioning ND beacons, Richard Lacroix, odxa: A
copy of Aeronautical Study - NAVAID Modernisation can be found here:
(via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6931-USB, Aug 9 at 0024, S6 mostly soft songs with
long pauses, 0025 resuming S5 to spixe of S7-S8. Occasional quick
announcements, unreadable; 0053 soft ballad; 0057 upbeat bluegrass;
0100 another pause but no ID, then as in
``House of the rising Sun - The White Buffalo with Forest Rangers``
from KIND (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6860-USB, Aug 9 at 0116, rock music at S9/+10; 0120
electronic. These pirates competing with Olympix closing ceremony as
delayed on NBC TV. It is Mix Radio International:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 341-MCW kHz, Aug 9 at 0614 UT, Enid`s NDB, EI,
is off again so at JBA strain level vs noise, 341 signal #2, OIN from
Oberlin KS is copied. 515-MCW PN Ponca City and 255-MCW SW Stillwater
also remain off; but 350-MCW RG in OKC remains reliable. A couple of
the big Canux also audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, Aug 9 at 0118, JBA music, presumed
Nowhere Radio. I am still suffering from high local line noise level
on LW thru MW thru most SW bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Aug 9 at 2200, it`s Monday so time for another token
English semihour from REE; VG 9/+15 via Maryland SDR; 15520 is OFF,
but also well audible on 11940 for SAm and even 11670 for Africa.
Justin Coe introduces news to be followed by the so-called `DX
program` which is really a mailbag; he gets into that at 2208,
admitting that he`s ``not used to working``, just back from a 2-week
holiday inside Spain but not even reaching the beach.

So the show will be ``chaotic``; and it certainly is, but not much
more than usual. First has e-mail from Peter Jones in GB, who wonders
why English programs have been missing since July 22. He must be
referring to new podcasts posted, not SW. JC says there are struxural
problems at REE; summer holidays, not enough personnel to keep all
podcasts up and running. Sooner or later.

Then a report in English from someone in Guangdong for a Spanish
broadcast on 17855 with a SINPO of 44444. Wants a QSL and sticker, but
JC still hasn`t located who is responsible for QSLing; if and when,
will forward that report. You see, in August everything stops in
Spain. Next from Richard Lemke in Alberta suggesting ``have fun`` name
for mailbag.

This somehow leads into a bit about today Aug 9 being International
Day of Indigenous Peoples, by the UN. And 2222 talking about a
Guatemalan woman singer, Sara Culchich? sounded like, but a search
engine knows better, Curruchich. Yadda3, he goes on and on about her,
since he apparently played a bit of her music earlier and more to
follow. But by the time he gets around to that, it`s 2229.6 so only a
little bit before the 2230 timesignal and into French. It appears JC
is programming for the podcast of variable extended length, never mind
getting it cut short on SW. Anyhow, here is more about her I found,
and more linx to her songs:

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 9 at 2200 and later quick chex of Maryland SDR
during SPAIN, no signal today from VOT simulEnglish. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2098 monitoring: NOT confirmed
Sunday Aug 8 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia 918 kHz: S9+35 via Noale
SDR, after ID, goes to dead air for several minutes, and believed for
entire span to 2030; back with country music at 2115 check.

Confirmed Sun Aug 8 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+15 into Bonaire remote.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+10/20 direct.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America,
This direct link continues valid despite WRN website link broken.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0230 on WRMI 5800, S9+10 into Bonaire; but
// 7780 is OFF, as it was at earlier 0055 check, and later.

Confirmed UT Mon Aug 9 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 kHz minus 102
Hz on SAM mode of Maryland SDR = 6159.898; slight glitch of a few
words of BS between ID and WOR start; after JL bi-weekly
expletive-laden show. So this is the reactivated time for WOR
replacing Sunday 2200; did not check A51 webcast then August 8 but may
well have been there too, as at 2230 HRI was starting, while 6160-
stayed with TOMBS past 2200. HRI has also moved to 0329 UT Mon; in too
big a hurry to start, cutting my last few closing words. Nevertheless,
``standard disclaimer`` still applies. By this time into Maryland,
WBCQ at S7-S9 is axually QRMing 6165 RHC more than vice versa, but not
so into OK closer to azimuth of RHC. Next, skipping any Tuesday

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** VENEZUELA. 6205-AM, Aug 10 at 0015, nondescript music here with
ROCV reactivated. I`m camping on the Bonaire SDR which is all busy but
someone in Caracas already on this frequency, until they start tuning
around the 49mb at 0017. But quits by 0020 when I take over and back
to 6205, showing carrier offset plus 8 to 11 Hz at S5-S7, some strange
off-mike singing and clapping? or chugging? keeping rhythm past

Manuel Méndez had reported on the WOR iog yesterday morning: ``ROCV,
El Tigre, Venezuela, 6205 on the air again testing --- Radio Onda
Corta Venezuela ROCV, El Tigre, 6205, is on air again as reported by
its engineer Gregorio Kina in the ROCV whatsapp group. Checked via SDR
remote receiver in Bonaire, heard right now, 1300-1311, 08-08 with
Venezuelan songs, "LLaneras" and others, ID "Somos Radio Onda Corta
Venezuela, El Tigre", "En Venezuela son las ...". Fair signal, not
possible to hear it here in Friol, NW of Spain at this time due to
daylight`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1080, Aug 9 at 0620 UT, C&W music overcoming KRLD on E/W
longwire, making slow SAH. Last year`s NRC AM Log shows only two C&W,
both daytimers: 250-watt KOAK Red Oak IA; and 10 kW KSLL Price UT.
KRLD remains dominant on DX-398, can`t get a DF on this nor enough
null of KRLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Aug 9 at 0618 UT, Spanish QRM to KWKH, with
super-hype voice actor, SHVA, could be USA or EUM. Last year`s NRC AM
Log shows only non-daytimer SS is KSDO 10/10 kW San Diego but
religious; supposed daytimers in GA, TN, TX. IRCA Mexican Log had 4 or
5 there. Getting more of it on E/W longwire than DX-398 so could not
DF it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
