Glenn Hauser logs January 18, 2024   
Friday, January 19 2024

** CANADA [and non]. 300 MCW kHz, dash and YIV, Jan 18 at 0750 UT, 500
watt NDB at Island Lake MB, coords less than 54/95. Noise blanker on
the NRD 545 makes the difference, still awful. Not heard this one in a
longtime, since Jan 26, 2023 at 0706.

328 MCW kHz, dash and YTL, Jan 18 at 0752 UT, 1000 watts at Big Trout
Lake ON, coords <54/90, which was also last logged along with YIV, Jan
26, 2023 at 0707. This time first audible at 327-USB. More less rare
Canadians this time:

332 MCW kHz, dash and QT, Jan 18 at 0754 UT, 1000 watts at Thunder Bay
ON, and underneath it JBA, IC, 400 watts at Wichita KS.

346 MCW khz, dash and YXL, Jan 18 at 0758 UT, 500 watts at Sioux
Lookout ON, >50/<92 degrees. YXL and QT are the ones most likely to be
audible now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CONGO. 6115, Jan 18 at 0500-0604, no signal from R. Congo into
Canary Is SDR which ought to get it if reactivated in its morning, as
it was in the evening per Manuel Mendez ---- o wait, at 0607 there is
a JBA carrier on 6115 audible when tuned to 6114 USB; could that be
Japan, very long path? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2226)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 18 at 2012, RHC English reactivated after quite an
absence, S9+25/30 direct, lite squeal, fairly good mod, the SSOB
except USA 15730, 15825. Something`s not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2226) see also

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 7720, Jan 18 at 0746, Korean weak but noise
jamming also audible for first time here. Echo of Hope from S to N
Korea from Seoul site per Aoki at 07-03, not *marked as jammed. Gianni
Serra, Roma, also reported ``QRM moderate buzz noise``, Jan 12 at
1644-1705 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11685-11690-11695, Thu Jan 18 at 0740, surprised to
encounter S9+20 DRM noise here. Presumed RNZI in one of their midweek
transmitter tests as scheduled in drmrx.org only at 1756-1857 daily
except Sats, 25 kW at 35 degrees -- and it cuts off the air already at
0741.4*. Then at 0743, I check 13755 which is supposed to be on now in
AM, but no trace of it. Should be propagating or at least detectable
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PALAU [and non]. 9965, Jan 18 at 0813, Hope Radio weakly audible,
but about equal to pulse jamming from CUBA! Which persists despite
being unneeded since R. República quit Costa Rica site many years ago.
T8WH or whatever may not be too bothered in Pac/As target, but why in
the world choose a frequency ever jammed by Cuba? Sheer ignorance
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2226)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2225 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: Update, confirming WOR #2225, WRMI, 9395:
QRN, 0030, 0044, 0059 (55443-4),
0230 music filler, January 17 UTC 2024 [Wed]
0130, music filler,
0230, 0244, 0259 (55433), 0259, January 18 UTC 2024 [Thu] (Lemke,
Richard -AB)``

Confirmed UT Thursday January 18 on WRMI 5010, S9+25/30 into Georgia
SDR, but JBA carrier into Bonaire where it`s aimed!

Also confirmed UT Thursday January 18 at 0230 on WRMI 9395, S7/9+12
into Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed Thursday January 18 at 1734 the 1730 on Shortwave
Radio, Germany, 3975.001, S9/+5 into UTwente. Glad SWR decided to air
WOR, missing from SW in Europe since IRRS quit. I keep missing ID
times, but notice it`s still going with DJ/music shows, 1915
``commercial`` for ass-wipes, ha2; past 1938 but fading out (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2226)

** U S A. 5085, WTWW: George McClintock informs us at 2130 Jan 18: the
heat exchanger was broken by freezing water, so #2 transmitter may be
down for 10 or 11 days. After recording that info for WORLD OF RADIO
2226, another update: thinks has found a way to repair it so may not
be off for quite that long. Also, once back in service, plans to
resume a WORLD OF RADIO airing on WTWW! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. {this item should have been included in my last report; was
already in WOR iog. It does appear in the latest log roundup instead
of the next one:}

On 2024-01-16 19:58, David Crawford wrote: ``1359.715 UNID carrier
popped on again at 0045 Z this evening, but unlike last evening, has
remained on. I'll speculate that this is someone switching from day
to night config using two separate transmitters.

So, what longitude currently makes the day to night switch at 0045Z?
Furthermore, a carrier disappeared about the same time on 1360.004
kHz, and appeared to be a bit stronger than .715, among multiple
co-ch lines on the waterfall by that time.``

``The mystery station appears to be KPXQ, Phoenix, AZ, carrying J.
Vernon McGee at 0105Z, easy copy on the Surprise, AZ, kiwi,
paralleled on their website with some delay. Will report back here
if the BoH brings a different ID.``

Good work! And 0045 UT is the Jan FCC SS time for KPXQ `Glendale`:
Feb: 0115 UT. It appears they have one site for day and night; not
sure if or how FCC would show whether two separate transmitter units
be used (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2226)

This report dispatched at 0529 UT January 19
