Hauser
** CUBA [and non]. 9700, Dec 2 at 0648, JBA carrier, probably TURKEY
instead of RHC English, but can`t be certain as RHC often runs past
0700 here only. But now at 0649, English is still running on 6060,
6000, 5040; while 6100 is in Spanish, S9+20 overmodulated. Somethings`
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Dec 2 at 0640 UT, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, the only one in a 9/kHz MW bandscan, as the Trans-Atlantix
are not making it due to higher latitude propagation blockage (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: confirmed UT
Thursday December 2 at 0130 on WRMIs into Missouri SDR: 9395 S9+20;
5010 S7-S9 but modulation is much softer. At 0150 I check the TWR DR
SDR closer to the 5010 azimuth: zero! Not even hearing 5025 Cuba and
5040 only a trace. This rx is deaf. But conditions are not good: 5010
is only JBA into Brasilia #2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2115 contents: Australia, Canada,
China, Cuba, Dominican Republic and non, Egypt, Europe, Germany,
India, Italy, (Latvia), Kashmir non, Korea South and non, México,

Confirmed first broadcasts UT Friday December 3 at 0130 on WRMIs 5850
VG direct; and 7780, S9 into UTwente SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Dec 2 at 1533, no signal from this WRMI, must be off,
as 9395 and 9955 are in well (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Dec 2 at 0647, WRNO S9+20/30 with music but distorted
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265V, Dec 2 at 0653, WINB S9+20 with Brother Scare
attempting to sing, // 7570 WRMI; but by 0655, 9265 has split to
``Somewhere Over the Rainbow`` on piano, 0656 disrespectful
talk-over!! ``Star Spangled Banner`` in sign-off, followed by a few
notes of some other music before 0658* chopoffair. Program sked dated
Nov 7 does show 9265 sign-off at 0657* daily following TOMBS, and 0700
starting DRM but not specifying frequency, but has been on
7375-7380-7385, not checked tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3 CW, Dec 2 at 0644 UT, single-letter beacon A is
JBA of one sit patiently on 2097-USB for at least 10 seconds.

4095.65 CW, Dec 2 at 0645, DW IDs amid sweepups from the Desert
Whooper beacon. There used to be another one just above 4102 with ID
as W but have not been detecting it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10860, Dec 2 at 1525, JBA music, the only WOOB audible,
none in the 11s, 12s, 13s or 14s, and suspected of CNR1 jamming but
unlisted as such in Aoki or EiBi. At 1535, another JBA carrier on
8880, the latter also unlisted and gone without preamps or with
attenuation, so presumably a local mix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Dec 1 at 0715, RHC English at S9+20, still on this late
while none remain on 5 or 6 MHz bands. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9900V, Dec 1 at 2108, R. Cairo S8-S9 into UTwente, but the
worst sound yet! Extremely distorted talk, language unknown. Synch
mode driven crazy, trying to lock onto, but rapidly going in and out
of lock with exact frequencies flashing too quickly to copy, but some
of them about 9899.742, 9899.867 and occasionally on plus side like
9900.027. 2113 adding random tones to mix, not sure if transmitted or
messing up the SDR. Mis-time signal at 2115:43; and I comprehend
nothing but ``31 meter band`` in sign-on; 2128 checking direct I find
only a JBA signal on about 9899.58. Something`s still egregious in
Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Dec 1 at 2130, VP JBA signal of S7 about even with
noise level, presumably REE but hardly propagating; even less on 11940
and 12030. WWV reports: ``Solar-terrestrial indices for 01 December
follow. Solar flux 86 and estimated planetary A-index 16.
The estimated planetary K-index at 2100 UTC on 01 December was 3.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor. Geomagnetic storms
reaching the G1 level occurred`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: Richard Lemke, Alberta,
reports: ``Dear Glenn: World of Radio #2114, confirmed, below with
details, B21 season, Keep Christ in Christmas, Details:

5850 kHz, also heard on 9955 kHz, 5850 kHz, 0130, 0142, 0158, S9
signal, 0159, 5850 kHz, Nov 26 UTC 2021
[UT Friday; 9955? Not supposed to be then, rather also 7780]

5950 kHz, jamming, siren, noise, 2337, 2343 (45433), 2359, Nov 26 UTC
2021 [Friday]

5950 kHz, jamming, 0057 (55434), (55433), 0059, 5950 kHz, Nov 28 UTC
2021 [Sunday; if there is jamming how can I=5? Maybe he classifies
jamming as N. Only jamming around here is on 5954]

9395 kHz, old style tube TV QRN, 0137, S7 signal, 0159, Nov 29 UTC
2021 [Monday]

Confirmed Wed Dec 1 at 2200+ on WBCQ 7489.9v, but JBA into DX-398 with
internal random wire; by 2225 it`s BA = slightly better so I can
recognize it as the current 2114 edition. Next:

Hauser
** BRAZIL [and non]. 6180, Dec 1 at 0245, CRI Chinese via CUBA
dominates. I think there is music from RNA way under it, but // 11780
is also so weak I can`t match them for sure. At 0300, La Voz Alegre
from MADAGASCAR takes over 6180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey Dec 1 at 0005-0010, not in the order
tuned, JBA u.o.s.: None in the 10s; 11410 S6-S5; none in the 12s;
13020 S5-S4; 13130 S9-S8 with flutter; 13920; 14920 S9-S7; 14980;
16160 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Dec 1 at 0013, still no show of RHC Spanish on new
scheduled frequency, nor on ex-9710, rather China there. RHC is still
on 9535. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 0130 check: 9710 China in
Spanish with music background. But:

9640, Dec 1 at 0133, RHC is here! Not 9650 but very distorted and
splattering up to 9650 on remote in Missouri; // 9535. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. 0228 check, 9640 is S9, undermodulated and not
distorted direct.

9700, Dec 1 at 0228, RHC English S9/+20, // 6000 only (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ECUADOR. 6050, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0231, tune-in to national anthem
which I had not heard in a long while, as the sad 1 kW remnant of HCJB
is signing off earlier than on UT Sat & Sun. What surprises me is how
strong it is into Missouri SDR, S9/+15, much better than I ever get it
direct; until 0232*, and SAM shows carrier offset minus 5.8 Hz (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR) {Date correct, missed in last report}

** EGYPT. 9899.59v, Nov 30 at 2212, R. Cairo still trying, strong but
extremely distorted in talk which is probably English; via UTwente
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Nov 30 at 1607 check, not only direct but at
UTwente, no signal from Kashmir Civitas for the second Tuesday in a
row, via ROMANIA; so last week`s absence not a fluke, suspended again
or finished (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6919.9 AM, Dec 1 at 0011, unID JBA music, only
pirate now, none on 6925 for a change. Nothing reported now in HFU,
even as ``6920`` where there have been some logs recently at other
times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** THAILAND. 13750, Dec 1 at 0003, R. Thailand news in English with
American accents, S9-S6 with flutter, best heard here in some time
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
November 30 at 2330 on WRMI 9955, fair-good, sufficient into random
interior wire and DX-398; some jamming maybe audible at fades. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 5010 to S

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Nov 30 from 0727
UT, not in the order tuned: 621, 684, 693, 711, 747-2, 765-2, 774-2,
828, 846-TP?, 855-2, 882-2, 909, 999, 1089, 1107-2, 1125-2, 1215* ---
*strongest.

Note 774, where there are normally two, altho mwoffsets shows nothing
more than 3 Hz minus from Spain. But at this late/early hour both W
Europe and E Asia could be propagating, remnants converging on deep
North America; as Walt Salmaniw, BC reported Nov 28 to IRCA: ``Happen
to be listening to 774, and heard a local ID for JOUB (NHK2 Akita) at
0720 UT. 1566 HLAZ booming in already, with readily heard cochannel
Chinese. All this via my Masset SDR`` Mwoffsets shows JOUB is exactly
774.0000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 1 from 0202
UT, when signals beyond W Europe are possible but it seems these are
not: 531, 585, 684, 774, 837, 882, 999, 1089, 1098, 1116, 1125, 1152,
1215, 1305 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3 kHz, Dec 1 at 0207 UT, single-letter beacon A is
JB audible every dekasecond, from anywhere but Quartzsite AZ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9245-9250-9255, Nov 30 at 1559, sounds like DRM noise
but nonesuch listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA [and non]. Checking out what RHC is doing during prime time,
UT Mon Nov 29, where something is always multiply wrong:

New 9700 is already on at 0217 in English about José Martí, S9+15/20.
This is also splashing upon 9710 where RHC is still in Spanish, only
S9+10 and also distorted with music. NOT (yet?) on 9650 replacing 9710
as per official schedule. And // 5040. 9710 still at 0353.

6000 is the only 49m channel on the air at 0233 and in English. 9700
apparently replaces 6165, good news for 6160- WBCQ. 6000 still RHC
English at 0655.

9700, at 0353 RHC English has faded way down and is now about equal to
CCI from Voice of Turkey IS, prior to 0400 Turkish which is
legitimately registered here until 0700, 500 kW at 310 degrees for W
Europe, but also USward. Rechecked at 0505, 9700 RHC is now back to VG
S9+27 and no sign of TRT - which has its own erroneous issues. But at
0557, 9700 bears nothing but Turkish music, no more RHC, which a
previous night stayed on 9700 only in English well past 0700.

6060 RHC Spanish is now on at 0404, S9+10/15, from *0400? Still only
6000 on 49m in English. At 0505, 6060 RHC Spanish has heavy Qu`ranRM
which is RTA Algeria via FRANCE as legit sked 0400-0600, 500 kW, 160
degrees from Issoudun. At 0602, 6060 has RHC English in the clear,
S9+27. At one of the English chex, I forget which, RHC was talking
about Fidel`s support for Timor Leste; whatever became of them?

6100, usual RHC English after 0500, is not to be heard at all at 0505,
0602. Also at 0602, still no 6165 or 6145 English even tho 9700 is not
on either. At 0654, 9700 does bear the TRT IS again, S2-S8 with
flutter. All logs before 0654 on the KB0FX SDR in MO, then direct.

The Other Side:
Yes, Cuba is a Failed State --- The government continues to complain
about US attempts to depict Cuba as a failed state.
Dimas Castellanos La Habana 29 Nov 2021 - 16:34 CET
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1638200078_35839.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE? 18127 USB, Nov 29 at 1529, after some contacts, CQs
repeated from TM220AYT ?? Very strange callsign. The TM prefix belongs
to France, or overseas France. No hits at QRZ.com lookup nor in broad
Google search. The penultimate letter may be wrong, but am rather sure
there are *three* numbers in it. However searching QRZ.com on TM220***
we get one hit:

``TM220BP France flag France Patrick & Franck MENARD
from 2020 qsl only via Buro France QSL: F4GFE,REF BUREAU - NO E.QSL``
which was a special event in 2018y about the 220th anniversary of
``The Battle of the Pyramids, also known as the Battle of Embabeh, was
a major engagement fought on July 21, 1798 during the French Invasion
of Egypt...`` --- so another such TM220 call is possible, but why
can`t I find it? Perhaps some of our hams know about it (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 AM & 6919.9 AM, Nov 29 at 2324, VP signals
traces of music, I keep getting if nothing else on the pirate band.
HFUnderground today has a number of unID reports on 6925, 2101-2420:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,89702.0.html
and then 0015-0216+ as Coastal Rock Radio, maybe not the same one:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,89710.0.html
and nothing on 6919.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 530, Nov 29 at 0704, surprised to hear Fox News as there
are not any US stations here, just Canada and Cuba. But seems to be //
local 960 KGWA as well as whatever follows. Must be some kind of
external mixing product with other local 1390 KCRC at 430 kHz
separations. Does not go away with attenuation, but maybe caused by
unusually clipping the inside random wire onto the adjacent YB-400?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9700, TRT clashes with CUBA: q.v.

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: Neil Gates of WMRI
Europe explains what happened with WOR 2113 airing before 1330 instead
2114 after 1330 Sunday Nov 28 on 9670:

``Hello Glenn, On Friday/Saturday a storm (storm Arwen) with winds of
90 miles per hour hit this part of the United Kingdom taking out power
supply and internet connectivity. Our programmes are fed to the TX in
Germany from a remote server which without power or internet we were
unable to access so were unable to schedule yesterday's programming
correctly for relay from Channel 292. Power and internet have now been
restored and programmes will return to normal next Sunday December 5
with WOR returning to its 13.30 UT transmission time. My sincere
apologies for any inconvenience caused. 73 Neil Gates, WMRI Europe``
-- Tnx and sorry you had such problems.

WOR 2114 confirmed Sunday November 28 from 2102 UT on IRRS SW via AM
Italia 918 kHz, via nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed, Sun Nov 28 at 2330 on WRMIs, interior random wire into
DX-398: 5950 good; 9955 good but with pulse jamming, better before
2400.

Also confirmed, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good on ATS-909
with shorter clip-on

Also confirmed, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+20/25 into
Missouri SDR

Also confirmed, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus
54 Hz = 6159.946, S9 into MO SDR; and no ACI since Cuba q.v. moved to
9700. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

expected 3215, so probably not yet on new 3360 either after 0200 altho
did not get around to checking. Next weekend? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13892.4 LSB, Nov 29 at 2323, 2-way in colloquial Spanish
