Saturday, April 08 2023

** COLOMBIA. 6010, April 8 at 0615, song at S7/S9, title or refrain,
``por qué``. 0620 announcement by OM and then YL with ID ``La Voz de
tu Conciencia`` as we have been assuming. Next song with yelling, ``El
19 de marzo...``, SINPO 25342. Ron Howard was simulistening:

``6010, LV de tu Conciencia, 0615-0645 UT, on April 8. Playing mostly
non-stop LA songs and several instrumental selections; pleased to hear
a definite, but faint ID; stronger reception today, probably a
reflection of the adjustments still being made to the transmitter. My
audio at
Ron California`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11760, April 8 at 0623, RHC English, S9 with
commentary. This time no // 9700, just German from Romania. All 6`s
are off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, April 8 at 0632, no carrier detected from R.
Kiribati. Saul Broudy replies to my previous about the TV

``Pacific Heartbeat --- Anote's Ark #901>>> If you go to the PBS app
(public TV in USA) or to
and search for "Kiribati", you'll find this program video, as well as
Anote Tong's appearance on the Christiane Amanpour show and other
relevant links. -- 73, Saul Broudy (W3WHK) Philadelphia, PA USA``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460, April 8 at 1539 talk at S3/S5 with flutter,
no QRM; and 17470 JBA carrier, so evidently Dengê Welat and Recep`s
Turkish jammer again failing to collide. Is no one paying attention?
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7320, April 8 at 0611, rock song with heavy disco
beat, YL singer, not sure of language, S9 from R. Vostochnaya Zvezda,
pirate in SW USA, quite regular now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 15540, April 8 at 1532, mixture on & off of voices, one
sportstalk found // 1390 KCRC strong local, and not its // sibling
1640 KZLS which is not synchronized but a couple seconds delayed.
Usually these things are explained as external? mixing with a strong
real SW signal displaced 1390 kHz, but that does not compute now:
16930 or 14150 -- unless maybe a local ham on the latter, neither
checked at first before calculations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4810 open carrier stronger than 4820 carrier, April 8 at
0626, S6 vs CODAR pulse peaking S9 on 4810, i.e. Logos, Chazuta. 4820
then seems to cut off and on with a warble. Evidently new Senda
Cristiana is having problems. Other reports on the WOR iog:

``Hi Marcos, April 8, at 0752 UT and re-checking at 0835, found 4820
silent. No Perú! But later at 0936, heard a decent level open carrier
with no audio. Still working on the transmitter? Ron California``

``Hi Ron, Their transmitter was on when I heard them around 01-02 UT,
but they were silent, hopefully they are on the air with something
today. Marcos C [Chile?]`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME. 4960, Sat April 8 at 0631, carrier on & off. That fits
VOA`s sked per EiBi: 0530-0630 M-F only in French, 0700-0730 daily in
Hausa. Starts at 0400 daily English, 0500-0530 Hausa (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2185 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday April 8 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/30 into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Saturday April 8 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela,

Also confirmed Saturday April 8 at 1600 on WRN N America webcast;

** U S A. 880, April 8 at 0601 UT on R75 with E/W longwire, two news
stations mixing, Fox on KRVN Nebraska and WCBS NYC. DX test from KJJR
supposed to start at 0601, but not heard until 0605 on the DX398,
Morse code: VVV VVV VVV DE KJJR - and repeated several times. So
that`s it: won`t need to listen another bihour. Besides, this is not
the second, not the third, but the fourth DX special from KJJR,
Whitefish, Montana in last few years when I also heard it: Nov 8,
2020; Jan 8, 2022; Nov 5, 2022. It`s 10 kW on ND day pattern. Peaks
NW/SE but can`t eliminate KRVN, WCBS nor something in Spanish. At
0607 sounds like SSTV which is a new mode for these, and no way am I
going to be able to decode it. No doubt there will be countless other
reports about in IRCA. Tnx for the test. Sibling station KSEN 1150,
Shelby MT, to do the same thing 24 hours later. In this case day
pattern will be advantageous, SSE instead of NNW at night (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, April 8 at 0610, JBA carrier presumed RV still here.
I`m not up after 0700, so Gary Pence, KM5X, says: ``Same report as
last night. Report for April 8th, 2023: Hello Glenn, at 0713z from KFS
NW [antenna on California coast] just under S9 on 3945 and S9 on 7890
and S9+5/12db on 11835 kHz. 73, Gary``

He also followed up on April 7: ``Hi Glenn, just happened to check KFS
SW and Vanuatu seems to be off air sometime before 0900z. On all 3
frequencies heard after 07z. Gary``} (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
