Glenn Hauser logs September 8, 2021

Thursday, September 09 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 8 at 1506 and still just in case
at 1750, NO signal from LRA36 into Brasil SDR for its main broadcast
on Wednesday, tho it had resumed after a month on Sat Sept 4, which is
announced as a repeat of Wednesdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 6030, Sept 8 at 0625, comedy from CFVP again audible vs
remnant Cuban pulse jamming. Now being reported elsewhere deep into
America; Ron Howard has been hearing it well on the California beach
haven (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 10960, Sept 8 at 1335, CNR1 jammer weak with music; only
other WOOB ones are 12820 and 13130, also JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9770, Sept 8 at 1645, nice low-key strumming
Chinese music with occasional brief announcements until 1657*. Listed
as CRI Hakka hour via Urumqi, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide
against Uyghurs and other Moslems. Via Alberta SDR, I was seeking YHWH
on 9775 which Rick Barton had just reported from AZ, but gone already
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21690, Sept 8 at 1515, RFI Swahili hour S9-S6 into RSA SDR,
still no move to 25800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** HAWAII. 6501-USB, Sept 8 at 0628, robo marine weather, distorted
modulation any ham would be ashamed of, but not the USCG. EiBi shows
6501 is shared among NMN Chesapeake, NMO Honolulu, NRV Guam, NOJ
Alaska; not to mention XSL China. Some of the times allegedly overlap,
at this hour could only be NMO from 0600, with NMN until 0615. I would
have guessed NMN anyway, but some of the ocean areas cited between 137
and 162 west, so Hawaii (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 8 at 0608, only 9-kHz carrier is here,
presumed R. Kiribati, while previous nights there would be a few
remnants from western Eurafrica: very-low latitude path funxions while
higher ones from the east do not: due to K-index of 4 at 0300? But
down to 2 by 0600, no storms, says WWV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 267-MCW kHz, Sept 8 at 0615 UT, NDB HET which is 25 watts
from HenryEtTa; I was tuned to 265-USB. Notably the only one in N
America on 267 per dxinfocentre.com. Not often audible day or night
and wonder if only sporadically active. City-to-city distance 202 km =
126 miles. Is due south of western Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Sept 8 at 0606 UT, KFAQ Tulsa with sports talk
about some team named ``Cowboys``; instead of C2CAM, so transition to
Blitz must be complete (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 395-MCW kHz, Sept 8 at 1831 UT the two KS NDBs, ULS ULysseS
and CA Newton / Harvs, mixing together at the limits of 25-watt
groundwave? 336 km = 208 stmi from ULS. Must be a greater collision
midway between them, while I am transborder south of one, southeast of
the other, via N/S wire. Periods differ slightly per classaxe.com,
6.28 vs 7.41 seconds, so eventually they alternate. At night often
only one or the other can be heard.

407-MCW kHz, Sept 8 at 1832 UT, NDB HRU, which is 25 watts from
Herington KS. I hear it best day or night on 405-USB, and relog it now
for the record (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2102 monitoring: zzz, unchecked Wed Sept 8,
1030 on WRMI 5850; anyone hear it? Especially in PacificAsia. Yes:

``From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, From the desk of
Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long
wires in the trees. Dear Glenn: This time I made my loggings that I
confirmed hearing World of Radio #2102, 0230, 5800 kHz, some guy
writing and playing his own music, Greg Fishmen, Sep 6 UTC, see you

Also confirmed Wed Sept 8 at 2100 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+15 into VA SDR
with slight storm noise; 21 seconds later on WBCQ 7490, carrier offset
-105 Hz = 7489.895, VP vs heavy storm noise - nearest over DelMarVa
peninsula, and much more to the N and S. Next, and last:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 4840, Sept 8 at 0622, a not infrequent occurrence, WWCR with
S9+30 of dead air instead of TOMBS, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15610, Sept 8 at 2243, JBA carrier direct. Should only be
WEWN, which English service was off air recently. I try a number of
remotes to confirm it but also JBA carrier everywhere on the 85 degree
azimuth toward Africa: Spain, UTwente, Virginia, even Birmingham which
however admits it`s ailing tho it gets 9955 OK. I wonder how well it
would normally get Vandiver on groundwave. South Africa is too far
into the night for any signal by 2300. So could WEWN be back on but
very reduced power; or is it just propagation. Finally I check Maine
SDR which is hot and it does get an RCatholic discussion at S9! That`s
it at a better skip distance, whatever the real power and azimuth:
1915 km = 1190 miles, close to two megametres (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13570, Sept 8 at 1402, open carrier with flutter, S5-S6
until 1403*. Aoki and EiBi have CRI until 1300 only; next not until
1600, RFA and jamming. Surely not the still HFCC-registered impossible
alternate to 9330 for WBCQ with WLCR, but anyway not imagined until
1700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
