** AUSTRIA. 6155, Dec 23 at 0641, non-classical music from Ö1, now
S9+10/20, much better than usual. Until tonight I had been
disappointed by poor signals during our only chance to hear ORF, the
wake-up domestic service relay from 0600 to 0710/0720; even tho the
English news capsule at the end was long ago eliminated. 0644
AustroGerman announcement, novelty song; 0647 TC for 7:47 and finally
some Brahms. Moosbrunn 300 kW transmitters except for this are
exclusively to relay foreign stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7220, Dec 23 at 1547 good S8-S9 song, in English? Most
likely CRI Japanese from Jinhua site this hour, ergo aimed sorta
thisaway; rather than also EiBi-listed hour of VOV in Vietnamese to
North Africa. No QRhaM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9700, Dec 23 at 0550, VP signals SAHing, presumably
Turkey and // 6000 RHC English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6060, Dec 23 at 0550, RHC still colliding with
Algeria via FRANCE. At 0646 S9+20 in the clear, mailbag in English,
but somewhat distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA [and non]. 6100, Dec 23 at 0551, RHC VP here in wrong language
Spanish not English, // much better 5040; also ACI from 6105 Arabic =
Algeria via France at 0500-0700. Same at 0637 recheck, S9/+10.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Thu Dec 23 at 0643, RHC mailbag in English, S9+30
but undermodulated; // 9700 S9+10 also u-m. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Fog this morning, Dec 23 at 1510 UT, so there ought to be
some tropo enhancement TV. Hepburn maps predict we`re on edge of Level
1, but up to level 4 blob south/eastward as of 1500. Most `open`
channels 8-36 show BAD signals into the STB, but only one decodes, RF
26 as KOTV Tulsa on 6-1; KQCW-SD on 6-2; and NewsOn6 on 6-3; soon
fading as does the visible fog (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 6145, Dec 23 at 0550, strong music not RHC, 0552 S9+10
Romanian, sure sounds like an adstring. RRI Galbeni scheduled
0500-0600 to W Europe & USward, but chopped off at 0557*. Must be a
domestic program relay, but not specifically delineated as such in
WRTH 2021 nor current EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2118)

** SPAIN. 12030, Dec 23 at 1549, REE IS at S9+30/40 despite Mideast
aiming, also weaker 11670 toward Africa, both programming from 1600
weekdays; nothing yet on Americas frequencies 9690 & 11940, which
don`t start until 1855 weekdays, if on air at all (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2117 monitoring: confirmed UT
Thursday December 23 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5010 S7-S8 into Maryland
remote; 9395, S9+10/20 into Missouri SDR, following 0128 `Sound of
Silence`. WOR 2118 should be ready early UT Fri Dec 24 for first
broadcasts at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 6114, the RTTY INTRUDER, had been heard every
night but not Dec 22 around 0700 check. Ron Howard replied to my
previous inquiry:

``Hi Glenn - Dec 22, checking 6115 kHz between 0525 to 0610 UT. Japan
starting to slowly fade up; no trace at all of Congo; normally Japan
would be coming up about 0500, so tonight was rather poor; no RTTY or
any kind of QRM; Japan with mostly non-stop pop songs (Ricky Martin -
"Livin' La Vida Loca," etc.). Ron (California)``

6114, Dec 23 at 0546 the RTTY is back, vs JBA 6115 carrier presumed
JAPAN not CONGO; still at 0640 when Nikkei music has grown to S6, the
RTTY evitable by USB tuning, but that should not be necessary!

I search the UDXF iog on 6114 and only get possibly unrelated hits:

07854 RCV : Russian Navy Sevastopol 1525z CIS-12/AT3004D/USB Encrypted
messages – (QYT4 Mode Actived : RIR98 de RCV QYT4 ….) In Dx – Qsx 6114
(05Mar16) (F5JBR)

06114 RIR98 : Russian Navy 1528z CIS-12/AT3004D/USB Encrypted messages
– (QYT4 Mode Actived : RIR98 de RCV QYT4 ….) In Dx – Qsx 7854
(05Mar16) (F5JBR)``

i.e. almost 6 years ago in France, first Russian navy log said to QSX
= reply on 6114, and then a 6114 log itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2118)

This report dispatched at 0129 UT December 24
