Glenn Hauser logs October 12-13, 2021

Wednesday, October 13 2021

** CUBA. 11880, Oct 12 at 2302, NO signal from RHC English; also off
in Spanish: 11850 and its 11840/11860 parasites: something`s always
wrong at RHC. But on are: 11760 with humbuzz, 11670; and 11980 JBA
probably 2 x 5990 CRI English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5990, Oct 13 at 0142, RHC English with thin-voiced YL, wrong
frequency instead of 6000; and also JBA on 2X = 11980; // 6165 on
right frequency instead of 6145. Thus of the two NAm English channels
at 00-05, you never know which two of four frequencies will be in use.
Something`s something`s always always wrong wrong at at RHC RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 13 at 0143, RHC Spanish is S9/+10 but suptorted,
rather than completely off 2 hours and 41 minutes earlier. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 11860, Wed Oct 12 on caradio, nothing but choral music
on R. Martí, various chex during the 17-18 UT hour, no jamming heard.
unseems sacred, but program sked shows for this date and time:
easily reached via Alan Roe`s WORLD OF RADIO Hitlist:
``13:00 - 14:00 [EDT] La Santa Misa
of Our Lady of Charity, in, where else, Miami, thus violating
Separation of Church and State. Tripadvisor explains: ``es un templo
católico de la Arquidiócesis de Miami dedicado a Nuestra Señora de la
Caridad, Patrona de Cuba, ubicado en Coconut Grove, Miami, Florida``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Oct 12 at 1505, JBA carrier direct, 1508 late
tune-in via UTwente SDR to another weekly Kashmir Citivas, from IRRS,
worse than usual, not solid, only S9-S6 --- and it`s completely in
English! about legacy of British colonialism, atop usual strumming. I
notify the WOR iog but it`s too late, 1511 switch back to Urdu talk.
No Western music fill this week, chopped off at 1529* but not before
we hear the last two notes of the RRI IS, pause, and then the first
note, before gone; tantalizing those who guessed this via Bulgaria?
Instead of ROMANIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MARTINIQUE. 18133.4-USB correct FM4LV frequency in last report, not
typo 18134.4 (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Oct 12 at 2301 and 11940 at 2312, zero signals from
the two REE frequencies scheduled to run past 2305 weekdays: maybe the
geomag storm have delayedly hit, outwiping such prop. At 2100, K-index
was 3 with moderate space weather = G2-level storms preceding and
predicting. By 2400, same except no more predicted (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 9330, Oct 12 at 0252, WBCQ World`s Last Chance is on again,
VG S9+20/30, Canadian-accented interviewer with someone about
Antarctica; anti-Rothschild, anti-elite. Wondering if some other
far-right political show? Not your usual pontificating. Oh2: Then
country song so wacko it could be taken as a parody on any other
station, like: there was never a man on the moon, it was made-for-tv;
stars and moon are not that far away, all we have is under a dome;
there are no satellites, no matter how upwards dishes are aimed, they
are really picking up terrestrial signals, from this Flat Earth;
partly paraphrased.

9330 is now much stronger than its nearest neighbor SW station, 9265
WINB; but way above other WBCQs: 7490v JBA, 6160v TOMBS. 0259 a few
notes of the menacing WLCR theme before cutoff the air. If I happened
to tune in now, I would have concluded it`s still AWOL. Cut back on
the air at *0300.7 with legal ID by AW, and then YL WLC ID also as on
WBCQ, more English. Presumably had to break for antenna rotation, but
no difference here before/after signal levels. HFCC shows at 0300 it
goes from 245 to 270 degrees, but also changes antenna designator from
805 to 216, huh? Both as only 250 kW. Surely it`s the exact same
Ampegon rotatable, but HFCC references:
805 LPH18/36.5/32.2/16.7/1.4/13.2/200
216 AHR(S)4/4/0.5
Maybe someone can explain that? From log periodic to rhombic? HFCC
provides no key or explanation to its lengthy antenna reference table
included in the zips with schedules (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Oct 12 at 2256, WRMI with rock is S9+20/30, despite
alleged SSE angle, strong enough to audiblize plus/minus 5 kHz
parasitic spurs --- but none detected now: problem fixed, or
intermittent; or differing transmitter units and/or antennas subject
to those? The messy modulation from TOMBS elsewhen could also be
responsible, not from that now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 12 at 0324, VP signal in presumed Hindi from
presumed WRNO as nothing else is scheduled in A-21; usually much
stronger when on, but at that awkward 1-megameter distance; and was
missing last night just after 0100. It`s hard to believe this
transpolar signal accomplish any significant service to India at
8:45-9:30 am IST (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6932?-USB?, Oct 12 at 2259, pirate music I can`t get to
resolve in LSB or USB, stepping up and down 1 kHz; and then gone.
Maybe the problem be the unrecognizable music. Not very, but the
closest log to this in HFU is unID on 6933 earlier:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15833-USB, Oct 12 at 2303, 2-way in Spanish discussing
putas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
