Glenn Hauser logs December 21-22, 2021

Thursday, December 23 2021

** ALGERIA [non]. 6060, Dec 22 at 0405, Arabic IDs from RTA and 0406
into Qur`an. Heavy CCI from RHCuba with humbuzz. TDA is scheduled
04-06, southward from FRANCE toward Algerian outback and Sahel in the
protracted absence of registered imaginary SW broadcasts from inside
Algeria. Something`s always wrong at RHC. And how is TDA supposed to
know Cuba is there if not in HFCC? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Dec 22 at 1500, LRA36 is on again this
Wednesday, S5-S6 music, 1502 Base Esperanza ID; off at 1541 check: via
Brasil SDR where I had to camp as two were already tuned for this.
Others report it went off at 1530 or 1532* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Dec 22 at 0408, RHC English is here tonight instead of
6165, S9+20 but undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC. See
also ALGERIA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 22 at 2000, RHC continues in Spanish, what
happened to English? Something`s always wrong at RHC. About today
being ``dia del educador`` since 1961, and hyping Cuba as ``territorio
libre --- de analfabetismo``, land free of illiteracy. Is this another
lie? Venezuela also makes that claim --- then why are those the two
least free countries in Latin America?

Then 2004 weather report from Dr. José Rubiera,
including snow in Labrador, -14 in Calgary, also bits of US, Mexico,
Central America and Caribbean predixions. He also appears in English
around :15 past those hours. En seguida: deportes (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** EGYPT. 9899.599, Dec 21 at 2208, R. Cairo, S9+30 into UTwente in
English but very distorted. Something`s always egregious in Egypt
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15355, Dec 22 at 1950, S5-S7 in unknown language, seems
a sermon with hymn breaks; 1957 AWR theme briefly, 1959*. Aoki shows
Ibo via Talata at 1930-2000; 15355 resumes at 2030 in French via
Austria (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Checking out Part 15 FMs in Enid to go with Xmas Sound
and Light shows, UT Dec 22 from 0017 past 0100, the two regular ones
each year: Singing Xmas Trees, at the NE corner of Oakwood and Oak in
an (ex?) oil field lot: 89.5 MHz, seems only three tunes looping:
Chipmunx, Jingle Bells and I Wanna Hippopotamus for Xmas. Quite short
range; we parked a little too far for full quieting, and it was hard
to make out the ``worm`` along the fence.

In the Pheasant Run barrio, address hard to make out but maybe 5701 on
that street, the usual house and trees with a longer stereo loop
including Mannheim Steamroller and quiet carols alternating, on 94.9
MHz with greater range of a couple blox.

We did not find the third one in another neighborhood, but maybe this
one on 95.1 which made the front page of the Dec 22 Eagle:

``Local light show brightens the holidays
Kat Jeanne | Enid News & Eagle 21 hrs ago lightshowhouse

The Sudlow Family Light Show is on display at 2442 Edgewood Drive in
Enid. (Photo provided)

An Enid family is putting on its fifth annual light show outside of
their home with thousands of programmed lights and music.

The light show is at 2442 Edgewood Drive and runs 5:30-10 p.m. Sunday
through Thursday and 5:30-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. {CST = UT -6}

“On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it is pretty packed outside of
our house,” Ryan Sudlow said. “People will just line their cars up and
down the street and stay and watch the program. The whole point of
this is to make sure we have done our part to make people’s
Christmases a little bit brighter.”...

I assume similar things are running all over, but I never see any
other reports of such ``local DX`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Dec 21 at 2300, VOT is S9+45, English VG into
UTwente. Something`s not erroneous in Emirler today (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, December 22 at
0409, earlier than usual for me so a somewhat different selexion, and
tuning downwards: 1584-2, 1566, 1458, 1215, 1161, 1152, 1125-2, 1107-,
963, 855-2, 846!-TP, 837, 774-2, 711, 693, 684, 612, 531 kHz. -2 means
at least two carriers beating. 846 presumed TP Kiritimati, almost
sundown there already. 1566 suspected TWR Benin. 1584 has low-power
Euro/ME only, perhaps most likely 2 x 5 kW SER in Spain and/or another
SER in Ceuta (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
