Glenn Hauser logs May 28-29, 2023

Tuesday, May 30 2023

** CHINA. 9900.000, May 29 at 2313, UTwente gets a noisy open carrier
at S9, frequency precise, suspect Cairo, Portuguese service sked till
2330. But at 2316 a trace of talk emerges, in Chinese! So CNR1 jammer
vs RTI also sked at 22-24. And this goes off at 2400* sharp (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15920, May 28 at 2210, CNR1 jammer at S0/S3 slightly
stronger than another one on 14920 among few sigs circum19mb. Both in
Aoki as jammed Sound of Hope frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 13840v, May 29 at 0543, talk in French mentioning Osaka;
trying to measure, I can hear it varying slightly in real time, at one
point on 13840.109. Typical behaviour of defective Issoudun
transmitter, and confirmed as such with NHK relay in French at
0530-0550 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15440, UT Sunday May 28 at 2207, AWR Wavescan with Ray about
Maldives, at S3/S5 one of better among few sigs on band. About same as
15770 WRMI, better than 15720 RNZP. This is KSDA as scheduled in
English on Sundays. Jose Jacob had not checked this daypart for which
frequencies might have survived Mawar. Earlier it had been reported
off; DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS amended as has the latest edition of Jose`s
KSDA Mawar monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. Post-Mawar info from Ben Dawson, WA, May
``Glenn, It is reliably reported that one of the Tinian antennas
suffered a few broken reflector wires but that there are no other
reported issues. There are still antennas at Tinian that have to be
completely rebuilt as a result of typhoon Yutu in 2018. Saipan's have
all been restored. bfd`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 910 kHz, May 29 at 1910 UT, JBA signal into
only one of my rx and ant on daytime groundwave, no doubt KVIS,
Miamuh. I`m checking out for this on the IRCA iog: ``KVIS-910 Format?
May 27 #34276 Saw a report today that says KVIX is now C&W
from GOS/REL… anyone on the list able to confirm or deny it? Website
still has the “King’s Vision” logo but the steam doesn’t work.
73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO``

For the next dekaminute until 1920, I only hear music with segués -
maybe classic rock, but with praisy tinge? Not sure, all instrumental.
Anyway, unseems C&W. Also a SAH of almost 1 Hz or 56/minute. Other
station likely KATH[olic, EWTN], Frisco in north TX, U4 1000/500,
rather than KINA, Salina KS, U4 500/29 with Fox Sports Radio.
MWOffsets has only a KVIS reading as of 2018-01-23 of plus .0009 kHz,
i.e. almost 1 Hz high; so the QRMer would be either close on .0000 or
plus .002 kHz. I`ve certainly heard KVIS easily before, but a check
last night did not acquire it vs the QRM. My best chances will be
skywave before SS or after SR which UT in May are: 0115/1115; June,
0145/1100. Distance: 273 km/170 stmi. Direxional pattern for KVIS U3
1000/1000, i.e. same day and night is ENE/WSW so we are close to the
major lobe 68/248 degrees per FCC, but it`s tight so edging toward a
hope to have some results shortly, in time for next report (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 29 at 2227, VOT not off the air in English,
S9+45/50 into UTwente, with a ``new program``, i.e. ``the conquering
of the city of Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire, by the
troops of the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror on 29 May 1453.
Wikipedia`` but it lasted only one minute until 2228. Later at
2246-2251, `Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring`` about insulin
resistance. Off the air before 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, May 29 at 0540, K6FRC IDs only over and over JBA,
HIFER beacon at Patterson CA, claiming only 1.8 milliwatts, so any log
of it significant; vs CODAR QRM, see also UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2192 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening
Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees.
Dear Glenn: Confirming World of Radio #2192, Happy Memorial Day,

(Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Also confirmed Sunday May 28 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323
kHz, S9+10 into nearby Noale SDR, lite QRM. This week *not* cutting
off last 5 minutes but complete to 2029, immediately followed by
opening of `Counterspin` for a bit before it`s chopped off for ID and
then 2030 `AWR Wavescan #743`

WOR 2192 also confirmed UT Monday May 29 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/9+10
into Louisiana SDR but first 14 seconds blasted away by external noise
burst starting at exactly same time. If only the 0030:00 7780 airings
could start later at 0030:30 like the ones at 2230:30!

Also confirmed UT Monday May 29 at 0300 on WBCQ Area 51, S7/S9 on 6160
-67 Hz = 6159.933 into Maryland SDR, on time since this fortnight, JL
gotta go by 0259.

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 7490-, Sunday May 28 at 2200, NO signal direct, not even a
JBA carrier from WBCQ for `UBMP`. Is it even on the air? It is by 2248
when I check via Maryland SDR. Propagation has been pitiful tho SF and
K-index numbers seem moderate, but there have been and shall be
blackouts. Anyway, needs to be on higher band summer daypaths - but
not too high. Even the SuperStition on 9330 is VP altho probably not
aiming thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13550, May 29 at 0542, I happen to be here during a
routine bandscan where there is CODAR swirshing at the rate of 2X per
second, when suddenly I hear Morse code --- not pure CW tonality but
diffuse, starts with WR----, so another CODAR ID. Wish I could copy,
but too fast by surprise and only twice?

I suspect same pattern like before as explored in great detail last
February, per: https://www.w4uvh.net/ghlogs_2023_0209_0216.txt
with linx for searching, a full call was traced to the MS/AL/FL Gulf
``CODAR CW ID copied on 4752+ kHz exactly every icosaminute, twice at
:03, :23, :43 past the hours, WRPW597``

So I`m back on 13550 by 0602, and barely perceive a trace of another
ID burst but uncopiable. No doubt we can eventually get it by
monitoring at :02, :22 and :42 past the hours. It may be audible over
a broader range than 13550 only; CODAR expanse at 0542 was approx.
13435-13565. Another check at 1522, weak CODAR and no ID heard altho
maybe tuned in a few seconds too late. Also a JBA carrier on 13550,
one of countless ChiCom jammer frequencies against Sound of Hope.
Probably there are more CODAR IDs out there on other ranges going
unnoticed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
