Glenn Hauser logs+ May 27-28, 2023

Sunday, May 28 2023



** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat May 27 circa 2100, no signal direct
from LRA36, no surprise, but neither into Argentine nor Brazilian
remotes at 2146 chex. Later I see that Manuel Méndez, Spain did hear
it but only at *2022-2038* and perhaps never resumed this time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760 >>// 15140, Sunday May 28 at 1504, RHC with
late-starting weekly Esperanto, and extra 15230 has been turned off
already; perpetual totally wrong schedule announced as 0800 on 6100
tho all frequenncies off before real summer time of 0700 UT; 1600
instead of correct 1500, as if on 11760 only; and 2?30 on 15730, an
RHC frequency abandoned years ago as the third airing of Esperanto
could show up on any half-hour around there on any frequency.
Esperantists are clueless about their own real schedule. The guy also
continues to mispronounce ``politiko`` stressing the first i as if
were still Spanish, instead of second i as absolutely required
penultimately Esperantoly. Something`s always wronge at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15670, Sunday May 28 at 1542, AWR Wavescan as sked on KSDA,
Jeff interviewing someone from RBA in Sydney: and 15680 in Kannada is
also on with S Asian music. So unless a substitute site, AWR already
have two transmitters running instead of one following Typhoon Mawar.
Still no 15615, the third one scheduled, in Gujarati. See
https://qsl.net/vu2jos/KSDA_Mawar.pdf (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN. 9855 > 9835, Sun May 28 at 1950, VIRI English with mailbag,
but very thinly undermodulated on both into UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** KOREA NORTH. 11710, May 28 at 1511, VOK in English to us is good
S9/+10 with `news` about children`s nutrition, as if they cared; 1513
ending with caster giving his/a name, ID as ``VOK, Voice of Korear``
and into a sweet/saccharine song, ``Our Father`` -- guess who? Not the
One in heaven (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SINGAPORE. 12025, May 28 at 1510, BBCWS in English, S7/S9, best for
us now tho aimed for Asia, site as listed. Rumors have been flying
that BBC are about to close down this relay, starting with WRTH on
disgraced FB. WOR iog discussion that it`s already operating way below
capacity, sometimes on wrong frequency.

Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas, reports: ``I found the Facebook thread
with the Singapore relay closure discussion. It appears someone at the
Oman relay station is saying that Kranji will be closed in July. No
further details at this writing. The 13 degree East Asia beam from
Kranji has always done well in the central part of North America, so
any replacement site will likely not be favorable for us, not that we
are a target, anyway`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 27 at 2200, VOT English is not off the air
into UTwente but S9+30/45. Usual hefty modulation and thick accents,
but no time to listen today, rather OETA ONR = Oklahoma News Report
starting with OETA`s own salvation from the veto of evil governor
Stitt, overridden by sane Republicans (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2192 monitoring. Confirmed Saturday
May 27 as the only WRMI airing starting at half past half past the
hours: 2230:30 and on all three frequencies: 7730, S8/S9 into Maryland
SDR; 15770, S9/+10 into UTwente; and 5850, almost synchronized via
different remotes.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 27 at 2346 in progress on
NEXUS/IBA/IPAR webcast where scheduled at 0130 CEDT Sundays, but as
usual it`s about 3 minutes late getting to the mid-break since they
really insert Feature Story News first contrary to sked at 2330-2333;
which means my last two minutes are lost, since even prolonged beyond
2359 to 2400 when there are two fadedowns before gone and replaced by:
fill music!

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 28 at 0054 the 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10
and noisy into Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 28 starting at 0320 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, S9+15/20 into nearby SDR, with nearby storm crashes.

Also confirmed Sunday May 28 at 1355 the new 1330 on WRMI 9955, S5/S6
direct but no jamming audible. Next:

** URUGUAY. 28483 USB, May 27 at 2110, CX3AT making quick QSOs
including a VE3, spells his handle, LALO. Just about the OSOB on 10m,
no beacons either. QRZ.com:
CX3AT Uruguay flag Uruguay, LALO GIORDANO, Montevideo, Montevideo,

UNIDENTIFIED. 9776 USB, May 28 at 0705, INTRUDING 2-way in Spanish,
``cambio`` = over; literally = change (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12121.21 LSB approx., May 28 at 0654, 2-way in Spanish?
At least heard a ``dígame`` = over; literally = speak to me. Can such
a pretty frequency be accidentally chosen? Still too close to the
perpetual RTTY mess on 12120, and no second harmonic from RHC with no?
more usage of 6060 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
