Glenn Hauser logs September 5-6, 2023

** BRAZIL. 11780, Sept 6 at 2235, no signal of RNA into UTwente, so
11785 Turkey would have had no such ACI if itself were on. 6180 is
however on, only fair signal in Brasuguese presumably during `A Voz do
Brasil`, mandatory government hour. I ask again, whatever became of
RNA`s DRM tests a few years ago which were supposedly successful with
low power but high-gain antennas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [and non]. 21580, Sept 6 at 1733, JBA weaker than 21470 BBC
Ascension, in turn weaker than 21550 Algeria. EiBi shows 21580 this
hour only is RFI in French to central Africa. That`s the totality of
13mb signals now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Cf. July reports about KVIS 910 Miamuh, which was playing
music with no announcements: ``Re: KVIS 910 monitoring --- Hi Glenn,
Just to follow up on this, I`ve been through Grove several times in
the past few weeks. It appears KVIS is off the air. This may be old
news but I wanted to follow up. Hope you’re doing great! Chris
KC5IIE`` Krug, Tulsa, Sept 6 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. About the blasting line noise level in Enid. OG&E
troubleshooter visited about 1330 UT Sept 6 and agreed he`s also
hearing it and is getting to work on locating source, but could take a
few days. Then of course repair work can start. Meanwhile I`m hearing
it on MW wherever I drive in Enid; even QRNs the stoplight noise. And
on home rigs it`s all over the SW bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 101.5, Sept 6 at 2018 UT, on caradio, fringe signal
pops in long enough to be Spanish with 620 area code, therefore
Liberal KS. In further driving around today and last several days, not
detecting any $ tereo dead air in Spanish, so KOCD Okeene seems to
remain totally off the 101.5 air, which is fine since they were unable
to modulate it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed Sept 6 at 2200, token English from SNR, VG into
Maryland SDR, and also in descending order, 15520, 17715, 11670. After
news, first feature about a woman pioneer of Spanish radio, María
Teresa somebody who just died at 82. 2220 multi-lingual ID reel and
interview with Paul --, book writer from England who moved to Ibiza,
but it`s a small island and ``not really Spain``, so moved on to
Extremadura (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Sept 6 at 2200, 2215 and 2230 chex, NO signal of
VOT English into UTwente. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2206 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
Sept 5 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 direct.

``WOR 2206 at 1020 UT Wed Sept 6, followed by Unique Radio ID and
email contact info, into WOR 2205 after 1030. Fair signal in USB on
5035. Matt Francis, Bilgola Plateau, NSW, Australia``.

Also confirmed Wednesday September 6 after 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast.
Did not attempt direct as normally JBA carrier but should be improving
gradually with less insolation, and sufficient on closer remotes.

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

Thanks this week for financial support from Donald Pearce, N0WMD,
Potomac MD, for a contribution via PayPal in US funds but not
necessarily, to woradio at yahoo.com and says, ``Hi Glenn, After a
long hiatus, I’m back to SWLing; Thanks for all you do for the SWL

One may also contribute by MO or check on a US bank to:
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: `Weekend Radio` is done --- ``Hi Glenn, The Cleveland
Plain Dealer ran an article on Robert Conrad back in January 2020
stating his age as 86 at the time.

Robert Conrad has led WCLV since 1962...
John Sullivan, Cary, North Carolina, USA``

So he is almost 90 now. That`s a fine article with several portraits!

UNIDENTIFIED. 1240.23 approx., Sept 6 at 0345 UT, JBA carrier het on
plus side of 1240 graveyard pileup. Nothing that far off, domestic or
otherwise, in mwoffsets. Also a weaker het on the minus side. With
hundreds of US stations on channel, what`s amazing is that more of
them not be askew, likewise for 1230, 1340, 1400, 1450 and 1490.

Believed to be KCRT Trinidad CO, as last reported June 26, *2021*:

U S A. 1240+, June 26 at 0604 het on the plus side of this
graveyard on the DX-398 looping WNW/ESE? Roughly 1240.2. Likely KCRT
Trinidad CO, long askew. But *still* not on MWOffsets list. Here`s a
review of my logs over the years and the original report, reverse
order: {back to 2013y including 1240.20 exactly}
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


At least the SMALLY TRAP. A few minutes into BBC World News America,
after 2230 UT Sept 5 via PBS/OETA, Cuba is ``a small island nation``
--- well, as RHC often reminds us, it`s ``The Greatest of the
Antilles``, which is certainly true. Yet it`s only about half the area
of Cuba del Norte, a.k.a. Florida. But small? Hardly

This report dispatched at 2350 UT September 6
