Glenn Hauser logs April 9-10, 2023   
Tuesday, April 11 2023

** ALGERIA. 9455, April 10 at 0549, rock music at S9+10/20, WRMI
reactivated #5? 5050 Legends already off. But 9455 at 0551 in Arabic.
SMTV? sked at 0500-0700. Recheck 0559 for ID, it`s off already. Not in
HFCC, but Aoki shows Algeria Qur`an service via Béchar site at
0300-0600. If WRMI reactivate, this will present a problem (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. 28266 CW, April 10 at 2225, dash DE VK4RST, and a quick
scan does not find any other 10m beacons. This is more like it, WI5V:
2017 (SWL David Vitek)`` -- presumably Qsld -- I don`t know about
VK-land, but US call areas are meaningless as hams move around and
retain old calls. Yes, per QRZ.com but it has no humaname!

``VK4RST Australia flag Australia, 10m Propagation Beacon, 28.266 Mhz,
St George QLD 4487, Australia, QSL: Vk4pr. VK4RST is a 10m propagation
beacon in grid QG41hw St George, Southwest Queensland, approximately
550 km due west of Brisbane. The beacon`s power is 10 watts into a 1/2
wave vertical antenna 15m agl and 200m asl. Reports would be
appreciated via vk4rst@gmail.com `` But VK4PR is: ``VK4PR Australia
flag Australia, Peter "Mutchy" Mutch, 74 Grey St, St George QLD 4487,
Australia`` I have sent him a report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6000, April 10 at 0546, RHC English VG, only
frequency still on, except for harmonic 12000, S7 at 0555. Longtime //
6165 seems gone for good: At 0256, it`s the TRT IS instead prior to
its English not for us but Asia, and its higher pitch chirps tinkle
ACI against WBCQ dead air on 6160-. Previously 9700 seemed to be RHC`s
replacement but that`s not on at 0300 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, April 10 at 1515, RHC Spanish is S9+5/10, maybe atop
Spain? which starts at 1500 weekdays. This RHC frequency of course is
normally tarde-only. Mistake for 11760? That and 15140 are both AWOL,
nominally the only midday channels. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, April 10 at 0614, JJBBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, and no other 9/kHz splits below 1220.

I caught another airing of the documentary on PBS -- certainly fleshes
out a country beyond our JBA carriers! Shows considerable sympathy for
its sea-level-rise situation, but nothing very substantial to
compensate; Pres. Anote turned over to a successor who in a PS was
said to be dismantling his climate policies! Possible solutions:
floating countries or undersea ``skyscrapers``. Meanwhile one woman
migrated with difficulty to NZ, and government was seeking to buy
enough land on a Fiji island to relocate the 100K citizens. Did
anything come of that? but would risk diluting Kiribati Kulture (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17470 & 17480, April 10 at 1513, two signals
around here again imply Dengê Welat and ``Radio Recep`` jammer are
failing to coincide, so why bother? 17480 is stroonger with S5/S8
talk. April 9 Aoki presents as if there be an exact frequency rotation
oddball sked for DW, while jammer stay on 17480:

17450 1040-1155 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17455 1750-1910 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17460 0330-1040 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17460 1510-1610 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17470 0430-0630 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17470 1910-2025 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17475 2136-2200 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17480 1610-1750 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17480 2025-2136 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7
17480 0400-2200 TUR TRT Recep. Erdogan Tur Emirler 1-7
17480 2155-2350 CUB Cuban Spy Numers Spa Bejucal 357
17485 0630-0800 UZB Radyo Denge Welat Kur Tashkent 1-7

If Tashkent really be the site, this must mean they have at least one
transmitter not perpetually off-frequency-minus. Also leaving in the
few extraneous entries in same range, EiBi rather differs as of Apr

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6224 USB, April 10 at 0545, JBA marine weather sounds
like NZ style with coastal names. Yes: EiBi shows ZLM, Taupo Maritime
Radio, never specified as SSB, with numerous 32-minute broadcasts
starting at :03 or :33 past hours, including 0533. Note that this is
circa local sundown. Should be much better for next emission at 0803
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, April 10 at 0619, tune-in VON just in time, dead
air or maybe JBM until cutoff at 0619.8* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6915 USB, April 10 at 0001, rock music S9/+10. 0007
``What condition my condition was in``; interspersed with W&M voice
dialogs, 0007 about paying for transmitter; new sponsor: LifeAlert,
faux commercial ``I`ve fallen and can`t get up``, vs autophone reply,
your waiting time is: 4 hours, etc. Haha. ``You are listening to
Crapola Radio, shortwave pirate, all free, all the time. 0012 music.
0014 ``Brain Brothers shortwave radio net``, more faux ads. Off at
0027* already. Tnx to advance tip of upcoming broadcast on the WOR
iog. Pse QSL? Many more reports here with more details:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 13645-13650-13655, April 9 at 2153, DRM noise. It`s RRI
Tsiganeshti this hour in Spanish. Before 2100 from 2030, English to
NAm on same is not DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, VG Monday April 10 at 2207, token English from SNR
feature is interviewing some novelist, not of interest, even tho
TURKEY is off, no competition (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 6165: see CUBA [and non]; jammer: see KURDISTAN [non].
11785, April 10 at 2200 and later chex, no signal direct from VOT
English, ceding the semihour to SPAIN but of no interest. 11785 not on
either at 2310 check into UTwente, no extra German. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2185 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday April 9 at 2000 UT on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+10/20
into nearby Noale SDR, with only lite CCI presumably Smooth Radio,
Brighton, England. Listened to 2015 to confirm we were not cut off
after 10 minutes this week, and hope the remaining 14 minutes also
aired. Preceding music show until 2000 is on the NEXUS-IBA sked as `16
Gwendoline Street`. What does that signify? Googling leads to some
real addresses in NZ, Australia.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 10 at 0038 the 0030 on WRMI 7780, JBA
S7 direct and noisy.

Not confirmed UT Monday April 10 at 0300 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160 -67 Hz
= 6159.933, S9/+5 into Maryland SDR which is DEAD AIR from 0256
tune-in until 0340! Something`s messed up at Monticello. However, WOR
does start at 0306 on A51 webcast only. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035 USB [low power]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

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

** U S A. 1150 kHz, April 10 at 0600 UT, no sign of DX test from KSEN
Shelby MT, as delayed oopsie 24 hours; another no show? I`m listening
on DX-398 nulling KSAL as much as possible. At 0605 some tinkling
bells which could have been an else liner. But 0610 I finally copy JBA
Morse code as VVV VVV VVV DE KSEN, and repeated several times. First
few minutes might have been talk indistinguishable from the QRM. So
that`s it: no need to listen another bihour. Besides, I already QSLed
it on November 8, 2020:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Surprised and pleased to receive on April 10, 2023, an eQSL
letter for DX tests almost a year ago, and tnx also to arranger Harry
Dence for the reminder:

``"QSL" VERIFICATION --- Glenn . . . This correspondence serves to
verify your off air reception of radio stations: WWKY AM 990 khz (1
KW ND) Winchester, KY. and WMST AM 1150 khz (2.5 KW ND) Mount
Sterling, KY during our DX test period of April 10th 2022. (12:00
mid–2:00 am EDT / WWKY 0447 UT & WMST 0452 UT respectively). Your
accounting of both station receptions was most accurate. My apologies
for the delay in confirming this “QSL” report. Any questions,
comments, etc., please don’t hesitate to contact me. Kindest regards
. . . Hays McMakin, Gateway Radio Works, Inc. / 22 West Main
Street / Mount Sterling, KY 40353.
hays@gatewayradio.net Office: (859) 498-1077 Cell: (606) 776-4200``

My original log reports of these are in here:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925, April 10 at 0005, only pirate besides 6915 Crapola
is very weak signal here. HFU reports of Damn Skippy on USB, mostly
before 0000:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11900.9 USB, April 0554, 2-way in unID language. It
seems no one else bothers to document these INTRUDERS: unidentifiable,
not SWBC, so off-topic, who cares? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0003 UT April 11
