Glenn Hauser logs August 20-21, 2022

Sunday, August 21 2022

** ALGERIA. 17600, Aug 20 at 2122, S0/S1 direct with flutter, JBA M&W
talk, unsure language, and the OSOB - Spain still gone from 17855.
This still there past 2200. Only 17600 anywhen in EiBi is R.
Algérienne, Béchar, only at 18-20 UT, but they typically do not adhere
to any schedule. Aoki has nothing on 17600, but HFCC shows not only
18-20, but Béchar also at 08-13, all 300 kW at 131 degrees. Recheck
via UTwente at 2300, still a JBA signal. At 2320 it`s still locked
onto 17599.994+ but inaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, re my LRA36 report on Aug 20 with some
music heard via remote camping, Gary Pence, KM5X, Dallas, replies: ``I
felt like the music from about 1443z to 1450z could have been a
copycat as a carrier was detected in the waterfall, so I was trying
different modes to try to confirm`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13605, Aug 20 at 2125, JBA strings of weak beeps/tones at
different pitches audible with BFO from slightly different offsets, as
sometimes heard after-hours from Cuban jammers, as if they are playing
around communicating with each other (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Aug 21 at 0413, RHC is off. 6060 is on in Spanish; 6165
much weaker than 6000 in English. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Aug 20 at 2209, no signal direct nor later via
UTwente, from R. Cairo in English. No loss, since if on, would be
hugely distorted, unusable like it has been for many months (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 5829.929, Aug 21 at 0051, into Maryland SDR, JBA signal
not in English and certainly not WTWW, q.v. USA; rather as sked Iran
International TV, the UK-based clandestine, listed in Aoki at
1330-0530 via Tashkent, UZBEKISTAN, which has a well-known track
record of offfrequenciness; recheck at 0129, however, same kind of
signal shows within 1 Hz of nominal: if same service, has site
switched? Or maybe a blocker, ever jammed? EiBi has it only at
1600-0400 via Tashkent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. Re Encore: another encore. I wrote: ``Brice, I was
concerned that for the 01 UT Sunday Aug 21 broadcast on WRMI, your
website playlists are only dated 6 and 13 August - until it was clear
the program being played now is the 6 August one... 73, Glenn`` This
was on 5850 and 7730, about equal into Maryland SDR, somewhat less
noisy on the upper. Wonder which ep will play 25 hours later at 02 UT
Monday on 5950? Says he will fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 20 at 2213, VOT is on, but only S4/S6 direct vs
RTTY on plus side, undermodulated. 2229 into UTwente, somewhat
undermod but sufficient at S9+30/40 and no RTTY, +002+ Hz high,
opening `Feeling Supreme`, this time natural remedies for hoarseness
until 2235. 2250 sign-off schedule, as sound level seems to fade
independently of signal level, strange. 2251 IS to 2255*, off just in
time to avoid switch to extraneous German IDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2152 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday August 21 at 0030 on WRMI 7780: S7/S9 into Knoxville SDR with
HSNL = high storm noise level; better into Maryland over SNL at

Also confirmed UT Sunday August 21 at 0329 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
S9+20/30 direct about 3 minutes into so started about 0326. Next:

** U S A. 9330.122, Aug 20 at 2210, WBCQ/WLCR in English, pretty far
off-frequency, S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Aug 21 at 0010, WTWW-2 is OFF, and so are all other
possible frequencies. Storms are not over Lebanon but east of there in
TN. Looking around the website we find streams still running. Long
outdated ``schedule`` says `Theater Organ From the Ozarx` is ``about
7:30 pm Central`` on Saturdays = 0030 UT Sundays. The time was never
reliable, but I have not run across it at all for many weeks. Is it
canceled? I inspect Bob Heil`s business website about mikes and other
audio equipment, heilsound.com and find no mention at all of any
theater organ broadcast under the old or newer `Under the Arch` name.

Back on the WTWW website, claims SFAW =PPPP on 5830 is 8 pm-midnight,
but 5830 is still off the air at 0136 UT. Instead there is something
very weak in non-English: see IRAN [non].

WTWW`s Listen Live menu now has additional options: Old Time Radio;
source? and even Classical! Source? Will have to listen more to that.
Only announcement heard was a std TOH WTWW jingle ID at 0100 employing
a fragment of Our National Anthem as produxion music, and as if on
``shortwave`` which this certainly is not.

5085 on by 0412 check with rock; no idea when it finally fired up;
along with JBA spur about 5098 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1530, Aug 21 at 0430 UT, I happen to tune across WCKY as
they are plugging Keith Olbermann [ex-MSNBC] for ``Worst Person in the
World`` each morning on his iHeart podcast; then ID as ``ESPN 1530,
Home of the Bengals`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
