Glenn Hauser logs March 22-23, 2024   
Saturday, March 23 2024

** MALI. 5995, March 22 at 0700, ORTM S9 of non-DRM noise blob again,
after a few days of OK modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.901, March 22 at 1706, into KFS SE remote,
S7/S8 of music, 1709 YL voice announcement in presumed Japanese,
another one at 1713; extremely excited high-pitched voice at
1720-1722, like a child, artificial, cartoonish. Still at 1857,
drifted to 11514.904. Further chex: at 2142, 11514.91, S7/S8. Never
could make out an ID but pirate, Hikari FM, in Arizona or Sonora. A
lot better than the usual JBA offset carrier I can get direct. If you
can get into it vs all those wsprdaemons infesting it. Gary Pence has
also been hearing this via same remote. Is it simply relaying this
``online radio station from Japan, Radio Hikari``?
Why are they always trying to get me to install something extra merely
to listen?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 22 at 1533, awful Riyadh roarer still
here, S5 direct vs local noise level S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Mar 22 at 2300, token English from SNR, S9/+10
direct holding its own against my noise level. Preview, about World
Theatre Day. News, first item about REE SW being defended in
parliament, necessary vs Internet being blocked; new? transmitter to
be installed at Noblejas. If & when a podcast for Mar 23 be
availablized, maybe we can copy exactly what was said. Chris Campbell,
Ohio, was also listening: ``The President endorsed shortwave in the
wake of the Ukraine war even with transmissions to North America. They
didn't mention any languages and they already do that even with
English. It could be a bunch of fluff, but I hope not. I remember
seeing someone actually had contact with Justin Coe. I wonder if he
would know?`` -- well, he retired so may be out of the loop.

2308 about upcoming Semana Santa with big processions such as in
Sevilla; apartments and even balconies-only are being rented out to
spectators for prices like 700 Euro. 2309 announced own new A24 sked
without any language details: M-F 15-23 to WAf/SAtl 15390; ME/IO
15520; 18-02 NAm 17855, SAm 17715. S/S same frequencies, all at 14-23.
I wanted to be sure about ``17855`` - Might have said 17885 believed
to be incorrect, but there was a distortion/fade right at that
instant. 2312, World Poetry Day was March 21; World Theatre Day will
be March 27 but celebrated on Sat Mar 30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, March 22 at 2259, JBA carrier direct vs HLNL, but
none heard at 2306 direct: was VOT on & off? By 2323 I`m on UTwente
when measured, now VG S9+30/45, during music. 2328 `Turkish Folk
Tales: The Nightingale` voiced by a different YL than usual. 2332
music. 2336 `That`s Why` the badax, something about food safety. 2342
``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2348 `a-b-y-s`` again, music.
2352 multi-lingual 2-minute ID filler reel. 2354 s/off as if the 1330
broadcast only. Something`s always awry at Ankara. 2355.5 IS plays
only a sesquitime before chopoff, no finesse, uncovering XJRTV in
Chinese; std genocidal denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Friday March 22 after 2105, VOA `Music Time in
Africa`, VG S9/+10 off the back from Grimesland as usual into central
USA such as the Missouri SDR. We have one more week to hear this,
March 29 before the A24 sked when this will be deleted, leaving only
6195 Botswana, useless to us back here. I enjoy some of the music but
zone out during the talk/interviews, especially since there is
competition such as `Samantha Brown`s Places to Love` on PBS/OETA
Create, about Corning NY glass and vicinity (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2235 monitoring: confirmed Friday
March 22 after 2030 on WRMI webcast only; 9955 not checked before 2100
but supposed to be off; as before may have cut on during last few
minutes of WOR; on after 2100.

Also confirmed Friday March 22 at 2105 right after VOA News, via World
FM, NZ webcast.

Also confirmed Friday March 22 at 2130 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323
kHz, VG S9+10 across Europe to UTwente.

Also confirmed Friday March 22 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, first SWBC of the
cycle, S7/S9 into Bonaire where it`s aimed, usually atop Cuban jamming
which persists. JBA direct vs my noise level of S9+10. Next:

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` WBCQ chex March 22 at 2353 into NH remote: 3265
5130.336 ATATT S9/+8; 6159.934, TOMBS S9+5/10; 7489.968, FKB S9+20;
9330.000 WLCS Portuguese S9+22. 0100 March 23, I`m on 5130+ with ID as
R. *rump International on Radio Angela, and switch to `AAAWWW`:
opening remark mixed with WTO theme is `lies, lies, lies`` everywhere
except WBCQ for The Truth. Spot check 0030 all about `*rump
Derangement Syndrome`. `Bye. Supping toward the end, I might have
retuned in case he were reading some items from a new Free Radio
Weekly and stumble into the ``AI Trump`` pirate: that would have been
fun, but FRW is not promptly published this week (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 980, March 22 at 0300 UT, Spanish mentioning an iglesia in
Pasadena, Tejas. Surely KQUE, U4 5/4 kW, R. Aleluya,
Rosenberg-Richmond TX. Dominant signal now without even trying. Night
pattern has a notch due N but a lobe NW, so we are in between NNW. Day
pattern very similar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 22 at 0645, R. Vanuatu S5/S7 better than usual
direct, YL in Bislama talk -- frequent giveaway word ``b`long``, which
means ``of`` in Pidgin; 0646 into music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier check March 22 at 0643:
among likely spots, only 891, surely Algeria, and no beat from another
this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
