Glenn Hauser logs January 11-12, 2024

Saturday, January 13 2024

** BRAZIL. 4885, Jan 12 at 0428, JBA carrier, presumably R. Clube do
Pará still trying to come back (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 12 at 0427 check, R. Progreso is missing. Something
else is wrong at RadioCuba. 15140 RHC of course was still missing Jan
11 at 2005 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440.000, Jan 12 at 2118, S9+20/30 of dead air into UTwente?
No, with volume at max, otherwise risking blastout, I can tell that R.
Cairo is JBM, suptorted, in English? Not usual 9439.995. Something`s
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS. 5954.96 approx., Jan 12 at 0735, JBA M&W talk, vs
storm noise. Nothing listed except, in Aoki & EiBi:
5955 0400-1830 HOL ICON BV.Sunlite Radio Dut Overslag 1-7
5955 0457-1457 HOL Radio Veronica NL HOL ov

IIRC, Sunlite was reported changed to Veronica programming recently.
WRTH 2024 page 556 shows Sunlite with 500 watts at 0500-1930, SW site
(ICN) Westdorpe. When stations are typically off-frequency, it would
be helpful if references show such rather than rounding off. Can
anyone confirm this offness, perhaps with even more precision? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950 USB, Jan 12 at 2322, soft rock, YL song,
S9/+10; 2325 announcement about ``voices in my head``, maybe ID but
missed. Many reports here say it`s Radio Free Whatever:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 AM, Jan 12 at 2323, pirate music, S9/+10. Many
simulreports of unID here but as USB:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 12 at 2310, token English from REE; interview
subject about feminism in sociology; sufficient signal direct into
reelout and portable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, Jan 12 at 2347, first tune-in via
UTwente finds S9+40/45 with song about İstanbul: I bet it`s VOT
despite odd frequency. 2352 multi-lingual ID filler reel, just in
time. 2354 canned s/off, the one with correct but incomplete English
schedule; 2355 IS once and off, uncovering XJPBS in Chinese, std
denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Jan 12 at 2320, beacon PCO is JBA with QRM from
something slightly higher; maybe K6FRC. PCO from Pine, Colorado.
Anybeacon audible on this ISM band is of note (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15730, Jan 11 at 2010, VOA French inbooming from Grimesland,
much Africanish music sufficient for my pre-WOR nap, rapid announcer
interrupted in midshow for mandatory 2030* chopoff, why? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 7460, Jan 12 at 0421, algo in unclear language,
presumably VOA KNK service via BOTSWANA, back on correct frequency
instead of jump to 7480 last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 13750, Fri Jan 12 at 1637, S7/9+10 in language
mentions Washington. Standout signal, except domestix on 13820, 13845,
this is the SSOB, the only others weakies on 13830, 13865. Aoki says
VOA Swahili daily via KUWAIT. EiBi same except site STP! HFCC says SAO
in Swahili, 100 kW at 114 degrees: that would be toward Tanzania,
rather than Kenya & Uganda due east, in any event, far from thisaway
unless 294 off the back. But HFCC also shows a conflicting
registration on 13750, 1630-1700 M-F, ADM, not AGM, English, 250 kW,
255 degrees from DHA UAE site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO MONITORING: `` Update: WOR via Shortwave
Radio from Winsen / Aller in Germany: just checked the SWR website. It
seems WOR is put out at 30 minutes past the top of the hour according
to this:

Cheers from Bremerhaven, Lesley`` Illingworth, 1905 UT Jan 12, WOR
iog. Viz.:

WORLD OF RADIO 2225 monitoring: confirmed Friday January 12 at 2130 on
IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+17 into nearby Noale SDR, no QRM
from Romania or anything; but strangely, very poor into UTwente with
some QRM making a fast SAH; low-power UK station?
