Glenn Hauser logs August 9-10, 2022

** AFGHANISTAN. This week`s `Frontline` on PBS, dated August 9,
``Afghanistan Undercover`` is an inside look on Taliban mistreatment
of women, well worth watching entirely, but starting about 30 minutes
into, a segment on a women`s radio station still on the air -- but of
course, run by men. Can`t find it in WRTH 2022. Saw an 89.8? go by:

``Under the Taliban, around half of Afghanistan’s media outlets have
closed, but in Faizabad, Radio Sada-e-Banowan, the Voice of Women, was
still on-air...`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11715-11730 approx., August 9 at 2253, extremely loud
crackling spur in talk, some music; as has happened before I think
it`s out of the 11780 RNA transmitter which is now S9/+20, the SSOB
even more than Cuba; especially since I find a match on the opposite
side, 11835-11850 approx. Altho I do not have a second receiver handy
to correlate the modulation. There is also amorphous similar hash
further up to beyond 12 MHz which may be from the same source, if not
something local (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Probably due to rolling blackouts, several RHC and relay
frequencies are missing, August 9 at 2346: 13650 CRI and nothing else
on 13 MHz; August 10 at 0000, no 5990, 6000, 9650, 9710, 11850, 11880,
11950 nor anything on 15 MHz.

These RHC Spanish are on after 0000 August 10: 11670, S8/S9; and
11760, S4/S6, both undermodulated.

6165, August 9 at 2359, RHC `English` already on at S9/+20 but *still*
horrible modulation like amplified whispering with a very narrow audio
bandwidth. The Other Side:

DIARIO DE CUBA Society --- Cuba is a Maleconazo (and this time a raft
crisis won't solve the problem) --- In just two weeks some 30 cities
and towns in 13 Cuban provinces have turned out to protest...

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, August 9 at 2349, unmistakable Brother Scare is
audible, S3/S5, via Channel 292; while little else is arriving on 31m
from Europe except Romania. Is not shown on sked:
but it`s obvious that only a few hours per day are any other paid
programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6919?LSB?, Aug 10 at 0006, only pirate on band with
music, no carrier, and I can`t make the music resolve and sound right
stepping up and down around here in USB or LSB. But judging from many
more logs here, it was unID on 6917 USB including SSTV images:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 9830, Aug 9 at 2244, still no VOT, just weak China
into UTwente, as first noted the case at 2200 in previous report.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2150 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
August 9 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+5 into Maryland SDR and no Cuban
jamming; but by 2248 the jamming noise has cut on and building up to
2300 for R. Libertad. WOR remains more or less readable.

Also confirmed Tuesday August 9 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+20/22 into
Maryland SDR; Midnite Cry, preceding preacher, still going at 2329.5
trying to give website when cut to WRMI ID.

Bandscanning later at 2358 I barely catch WOR also ending on 5950!
Must have also started at 2330. NOT scheduled, rather System L with
one-hour `Challenge` at 2300 M-F. No second receiver handy so can`t
check whether synchro with 9395 which is System G. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
1100 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Thanks this week for financial support from Joe Caberlin, VE1EJ,
Ontario, for some US$ to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702;
preferably by money order or check on a US bank.

Or via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to

UNIDENTIFIED. 9900, Aug 9 at 2351, S4/S6 direct, just barely
modulated, so I figure it`s Cairo, Portuguese for Brasil. But that
should have ended at 2330. Uplooked later, at this hour Cairo should
be on 9885 in Arabic, unchecked. Otherwise in EiBi, 9900 is now the
China/Taiwan radio war, CNR1 jamming from Beijing vs RTI (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
