Tuesday, February 06 2024

** CANADA. 28175 MCW, Feb 4 at 2150, continuous carrier stands out.
Between long pauses, ID as DE VE3TEN. Missing from WI5V list, but in
this list as of today!
``28175 VE3TEN - Ottawa ON CAN FN25dj (04 Feb 2024) Note: de ID + grid
+ 75" carrier FSK - Pwr 10w`` Lots of activity on the 10m beacon band.
I wish there were a way to filter out the `domestic` ones and go to
foreign ones without listening to each and every ID (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** EGYPT. 9440v, Feb 4 at 2148, no signal direct from R. Cairo in
English. Something`s always amiss at Abis. 9440v, Feb 5 at 2150, no
signal into UTwente. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** JAPAN. 28430 USB, Feb 5 at 2318, CQDX from 7L4LKK, JBA and took
numerous passes to copy fonetik call. Where in the world is that? Then
working a VA7. QRZ.com: ``7L4LKK Japan flag Japan, MICHIO HASEGAWA,
3-95-2 Tomae Mito-city, Ibaraki 311, Japan. My callsign:

I was born in 1960 and started amateur radio in 1977 when I was a high
school student. My first callsign was JH7XZU. About 30 years ago, I
moved to JA1 area from JA7 area. However, in those days, we run out
of J letter prefix in JA1 area. That is why I was assigned a new type
of prefix 7L4 instead of J letter prefix such as JA1, JH1, JR1.
Therefore my callsign is not a special callsign nor an event
callsign.`` Many photos of equipment, QSL design, scenery:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Feb 5 at 2308, token English from SNR, feature
interview about organ donation and transplanting. S9+40/50 direct.
Also VG on 12030 briefly checked, backwards from ME beam (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 6125.018, UT Mon Feb 5 at 0410, VOT English with annoying
squeal, S9+35 into UTwente, which I was also hearing first via
Maryland. Autonotch does nothing. To get rid of it, bandwidth must be
narrowed below 3 kHz which leaves very lofi audio. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler. `Weekly Analysis` is just ending; 0413 song;
0417 ``always-by-your-side`` promo; 0418 song; 0421
``with-you-every-hour`` promo, and `Letterbox`, which is why I tuned
in, to reconfirm on final repeat of Sunday show. Informally referring
to letters/reports from: India, Germany, Italy, Australia, Italy,
Belgium; Alan Holder on Isle of Wight UK, only name we recognize,
longtime listener glad to have L`Box back; India, Lithuania. Along the
way offered only P-QSLs, no have calendars or any other goodies to
send like they used to. During COVID worked from home and didn`t get
it. Back next week and ``Goodbye, my lovely listeners, I love all of
you``. It`s the regular OM announcer whose name per Alan is Halil
Ibrahim Sarikaya, until 0438. Has considerable accent but not impeding
comprehension like the YL badax, Efsun Duri Elgeler. Last week this
show ran from 0417 to 0429, so the span is now expanded to 0417/0438v,
likewise on all the other English transmissions, i.e. those starting
on half-hour, :47/:08. DX/SWL/Media Programs amended. The / indicates
start/stop range rather than specific times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.018, Feb 5 at 2313, VOT English in music,
JBA direct vs noise. 2331 into UTwente when measured, same offset as
earlier above 6125, same squeal and no doubt same transmitter at
Emirler where something`s always erroneous, S9+35/45. 2350
multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2352 s/off for the 1330 airing only;
2352.6 IS starts; before 2356 restart IS with German IDs; cut off
2359.3* before extraneous German can start and uncovering as always
the 5960.000 CCCCCCI from EAST TURKISTAN, std. genocidal denunciations
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 35790, Feb 4 at 2155, JBA carrier suspected to be 3 x 11930
R. Martí. Lots of stronger carriers around, presumed birdies. I
haven`t watcheard it yet, but I bet this tour of Grimesland makes no
mention of its harmonix, heard again Feb 5 about 2310:
as found by Harald Kuhl in the BDXC-UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday February 4 at 2100 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+18 into
nearby Noale SDR; S9+5 into UTwente, no QRM at either.

Also confirmed Sunday February 4 at 2255 the 2230 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975, VP S7 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9+10 but
noisy into Georgia SDR; S9/+5 into Durango2.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 5 from 0401.5 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.932, JBA S4/S5 into Maryland SDR but L&C on webcast; JL gotta go
by 0400 but intervally various noises, jingles and IDs before WOR.

ZZZ, not checked Mon Feb 5 at 0930 on SW Radio, Germany, 6160. Anyone
hear it?

3975, S8/S9+5 into UTwente. Next:

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. WTF,K? RU, ND beacon, Feb 6 at 0735 as I was almost
asleep, did not note the frequency. Listed are 272 kHz in TX, more
likely than 275 in NC. This to remind me to check again (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. ``Hi Glenn! Just a quick note about your NDB report on
382 kHz. SP is located in Springfield, IL, not Greenland. The call
sign of the Greenland NDB is SF. Besides YPL and SF, the only NDBs on
382 kHz with sidebands around 400 Hz from the carrier frequency are BT
in Burlington, VT and YE in Fort Nelson, BC. YE was scheduled for
decommissioning last August but was reported still transmitting on
February 1, 2024. IRS in Sturgis, MI gets out very well but its
sidebands are around 1000 Hz from the carrier frequency. Steve Howe,
Saint Albans, VT`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)


JAMAICA, a ``tiny Caribbean island``, asserts Seth Doane in a story
about Bob Marley -- and was axually *in* Jamaica. Maybe you can get
this to play:
Among Caribisles it`s the third *largest* after Cuba, Hispaniola.
There are far too many truly tiny islands to compare it with, but
among nations, how about Monaco? More than 5,769 Monacos could fit
into Jamaica.

ICELAND, a ``tiny nation``, says Bill Weir in CNN`s `The Whole Story
-- What Whales Tell Us`, an otherwise excellent program -- in this
case maybe let it pass if ``nation`` refer to population of 378,000
rather than area. But where would be the barrier between tiny and
not-tiny; should pop. density be considered?

This report dispatched at 0323 UT February 6
