Wednesday, September 21 2022

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 20 at 0632, RHC English at S9+10/20 of just barely
modulation; 6165, 6000 and 5040 are off, leaving only 6060 with a
sufficient S9/+10 signal yet undermodulated with hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 20 at 2152, R. Cairo manages to get on air,
but S9+25/35 into UTwente of hum and extreme distortion in presumed
English. Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 20 at 0630, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati.
Gary Pence, TX, has also been checking this via remote:

``Hi Glenn, I was using SDR NH6XO, Kaneohe, Hawaii when I caught them
in their local sunset enhancement, better waterfall with visible audio
besides the usual JBA carrier then it took a deeper fade that seems to
be common that I have run across in my MW DXing. I Recorded a little
and no side splatter directly on the sides, around 0428z Sept 20,
2022. Every time I have checked 846, a thin line showed up on the
Kiwi, so to my amazement I was surprised to see some modulation in the
waterfall and could hear it a little better. After about 10 minutes,
the big fade hit. To really explore this sunset enhancement, I need to
start listening just before sunset around 0345z or sooner until their
sunset around 0428z. I read a story how somebody in Hawaii had
armchair copy from across the room back in the day. CuL, Gary`` (Glenn

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 20 at 0631, VON on with S9/+10 of dead air.
Well, that`s something, awkward at Abuja. Did not get to check their
evening today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 15375, Sept 20 at 1454, S8/S9 of heavy rock vocal music,
Turkish talk and more music past 1500, one of better signals on band,
so I bet it`s VOT: yes, 13-16, 500 kW at 310 degrees toward W Europe
and here are we beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Sept 20 at 2154, VOT already on in Tuerkiyeish
talk not scheduled now, S9+45 into UTwente, 2155 IS starts with
Engliyeish IDs, but suptorted and with loud hum, 2220 commentary about
QE2 by someone with an Engliyeish name. Suspect same transmitter as
for Tuerkiyeish at 16-21 on same parameters 500 kW at 310 degrees
USward. Wonder if it stayed on after 2100. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
September 20 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR, already
vs considerable pulse jamming but listenable past 2250 if you put up
with it. Likewise for R. Libertad after 2300, but maybe harsher
dentro-Cuba. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
1100 UT Wednesday Unique Radio webcast [5035/3210 USB suspended]

** U S A. 5800, Sept 20 at 0640, S7/S9 of dead air, must be WRMI, but
#10 is now scheduled to quit 5800 at 0400, while #4 is also labeled
5800 but 24/7 of blank. Running 100 kW units after hours must be bad
for the power bill, or maybe there is some reason for testing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 20 circa 0630 quick check for R. Vanuatu still
finds nothing: need to be more persistent like Ron Howard, same

``Strange happenings! On 7932, happen to hear Radio Vanuatu for maybe
10-15 seconds before cutting off at about 0522 UT. Seemed they were
maybe working on repairing the xmtr without attempting to correct the
situation of being off frequency? Went to randomly check 8620+, after
0559 UT; yes, at about 0653 they came on with Island music for maybe
another 10-15 seconds; checked after 0653 for a straight hour, but
they never came back at all. Today heard for probably less than 30
seconds! Ron, Asilomar State Beach, Calif. (near Monterey), Etón E1,
external antenna: 100 ft. long wire`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
