Glenn Hauser logs February 12-13-14, 2023   
Tuesday, February 14 2023

** CHINA. 11975, Feb 13 at 1621, extremely distorted S6/S8 music and
talk. On BFO, carrier is also extremely unstable. Doppler flutter
maybe worsening it as on some other 25mb frequencies, like Vietnam.
Not recognizable as CNR1 jammer, but only that and Sound of Hope in
EiBi and Aoki. Well, that makes the jamming even more effective!
Romania does not start 11975 in Arabic until 1630 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 13605, Feb 13 at 0634, pulse jamming against nothing, the
daytime Martí frequency active in A-seasons only. What about 13820,
the B-season RM daytime channel? some beepbursts, probably also out of
Cuba as sometimes appear on jamchans. Something`s always paranoid
wacko at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, Feb 13 at 0635, RHC English at S9/S8 direct but
undermodulated on 2 x 6000, where it`s S9+30/40 starting ``Cuban
Music`` show also UM, somewhat distorted, and with spurpeaks circa
plus/minus 9 kHz on 5991 & 6009. // 6060 is still on at S9+30, louder
but distorted and splattering 6048-6068 or so; and // 6165 at S9/+10
with ACI from WBCQ as these two stations insist on a too-cozy 5-kHz
neighborly relationship. But no 6100. Somethings` multiply wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Feb 13 at 0647 UT, JBA carrier direct from R.
Kiribati, only 9/kHz split detected. Probably at Oahu remote, Gary
Pence, KM5X, was getting it by 0536 but not at 0415 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17 and virtual 17, Feb 13 at 1646 & 2338 UT, K17JN-D
is OFF again, only local TV signal so the Three Angels are again
unable to convert any Enidians (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Feb 13 at 2310 after news, REE token English
S9+10/20 into Maryland SDR, about World Radio Day, and Peace theme
this year, listeners commenting about listening to Sefarad service;
2313 clip of Ukrainian Radio ID, which was relayed in Spain today on
DAB; since they ``don`t have any spare frequencies on FM``. There is a
refugee centre quite near to RTVE HQ, where DAB receivers were
distributed. // 12030 almost as good off the back to ME; 11940 to SAm
sufficient; 11685 to Africa insufficient with squeal.

2319, on to visit a museum about a painter born in *1863, on
centennial of his death in 1923y*, Joaquín Sorolla. Visually here and
leads to a 6+ minute audiovideo about the centennial exhibition:
2328 wrap, song about Radio- and V-Day too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Feb 13 at 2259, tailend of BBCWS English
via OMAN, but NO signal from VOT English and no XJPBS, Urumqi either
until the latter finally chops on 5960.000+ at *2308, S9/+15 Chinese
talk from EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uyghurs and other Muslims. Still noshow TRT by 2330. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler. Still CC only Feb 14 at 0000 TS and CNR1
theme. So no bonus DST German either, shux (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 13865, Feb 13 at 0626, English OB from a noisy venue,
what`s this? 0628 outro as from an SBG in Arizona even on BBC WS, 0630
headlines. EiBi shows this hour only via Pinheira, SAO TOME; but not
noticeably off-frequency! How high does this band officially extend?
FEBC on 13870 elsewhen. Right now BTW, NZ 13755 is JBA carrier, little
else besides Cuban jammers, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re the CODAR CW ID on 4752+ kHz: On Sun, Feb 12, 2023 at
11:53 AM, Glenn Hauser wrote: `Singing River is a river, not a town;
or rather nickname for the Pascagoula River` --

``Actually, the station is on Singing River Island (actual name) in
Pascagoula Bay. There are (or were) military facilities on the island
and USM has/had some facilities there. -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Feb 13 at 1625, PCO ID over and over, the <4
milliwatt HIFER beacon at Pine, ColoradO already QSLed, JBA direct,
but even weaker JJBBA on 13565 CW, 1.8 mw K6FRC HIFER beacon, from
Patterson, California. Not often can detect both at once, and never at
any daypart other than mid-morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2177 monitoring: Gary Pence, TX,
KM5X, asks, Feb 12: ``Hi Glenn, pardon the question but is Secretland,
Secretbrod a known geographic place or just a name for a transmitter
site that for whatever reason remains Anonymous?? 73s, Gary``

Gary, It`s really the main SW site in Bulgaria, Kostinbrod. Only Ivo
Ivanov, who used to work there(?) calls it that for reasons of his
own, or an inside joke? I just ran the word thru Google translate and
it comes out `bone ship`...``

``Thanks, Glenn, I wasn't sure about this one. Always a pleasure to
hear from you, and from Ivo`s latest logs. WOR #2177 was broadcast
from there, NICE. Gary``

Really? Viz.: ``SECRETLAND. Unscheduled broadcast of World of Radio
#2177 on 7295 kHz via Secretbrod, February 11:

1800-1830 on 7295 SCB 050 kW / 306 deg to WeEu English Sat. Very good
via SDR Heimiswil in Switzerland
1830-1900 on 7295 SCB 050 kW / 306 deg to WeEu English Sat Gospel
Miracle Time as scheduled Winter B22
Публикувано от Observer в 12:58 PM``

Long ago WOR was on Saturdays around that time via IRRS; more recently
to Fridays during that hour, and then canceled. This catch without
notice may have been a spur-of-moment filler as on Sat sked:

``19:00 Streaming + 7295+1323 kHz English News and features from our
studio`` -- so there is also no guarantee the entire 29 minutes ran.
Nor can we depend on it henceforth, but check.

Also confirmed Sunday February 12 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia,
1323 kHz, Villa Estense, S9/+10 into nearby Noale SDR; still going at
2105 into Parma SDR but only S6/S8. BTW, all three AMI transmitters on
1323, 918 and 207 kHz were active Feb 13 for a World Radio Day tribute
to Marconis, looping, for 24h?

Also confirmed UT Monday February 13 at 0030:00 on WRMI 7780, S7/9+10
into Louisiana SDR, and yes, still with the 14-second noise burst
starting at exactly same time atop my opening, as WRMI has not agreed
to start programs 15 seconds later. Same burst again against next
whatever show at 0100:00.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 13 at 0359.5 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160
minus 64 Hz = 6159.936, S9/+5 into Maryland SDR, with ACI from 6165
Cuba unless narrowed or LSBed. Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035 USB [low power]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid, OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17790, Feb 13 at 1628, WRMI-7 in strange language including
bits of English words: I guess it`s ``Nigerian Pidgin`` as chopped off
at 1629 for Radio Africa Network ID in real English, and P O box in
Lagos. 1630 into next gospel huxter, `Soul of Abraham` with a
``prophetess`` in Renton, Washington, on the RAN South American
service (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Mon Feb 13 at 0230, KVOH is back on air after
missing a few weeks, awaiting parts? Praise music into gospel huxters
during `Nightwatch`. Not sure if was on a night or two before, not
checked, but still scheduled UT Sat/Sun/Mon only at 0100-0600. Only
secular shows are DX programs: `Frecuencia al Día`, also the only
stray from English, UT Sun 0100, and `Wavescan`, UT Mon 0100. Recheck
at 0502, still on with jazz on `Swing Shift` but I get away before can
be preached upon (Glenn Hauser)

** VATICAN. Correct date for 13830 & 15565 in last report should be
Feb 12, not 11

** VIETNAM. 11885, Feb 13 at 1622, music at S5/S8 with Doppler
flutter. VOV is here 1430-2200 including English this semihour (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report despatched at 0033 UT February 14
