Hauser
** BRAZIL. 11780, July 11 at 0020, RNA is S9+10/20 but suptorted =
suppressed and distorted modulation again tonight. Is no one at Parque
Rodeador site paying attention? // 6180 however is about as strong
with good modulation, somewhat more fading (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, July 10 at 0619, fluttery French at S4-S7. Aoki
shows R. Ndarason International in Kanuri via Woofferton UK at
0600-0700; but EiBi is more detailed with a French segment at
0615-0625 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13530 & 13130, July 10 at 1358, the only CNR1 jammers heard
in the 12-13s, altho I`m on inside longwire only due to storming.

10920, July 10 at 1446, JBA carrier probably CNR1 jammer against Sound
of Hope as listed; the only WOOB such signal in the 10-14 MHz range
now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 10 at 1449, S9/+10 of dead air or maybe JBM;
something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, July 11 at 0023, this RHC is suptorted but no +/- 39
kHz spurs like last night. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, July 11 at 0116, R. Progreso, music with OK modulation,
S9+10/20; back on air after missing a few nights. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA [non]. At 0226 UT Sat July 11 I wrote to
mysterypirateradio@gmail.com -- NO 3955 signal here in OK, nor at the
Rockport Maine SDR, so I listen via UTwente in Holland, from 0158 past
0225 UT there are songs with pauses, but no announcements heard so
have no idea whether it is really your program. I did publicize this
on World of Radio, and reminded the WOR iogroup less than half an hour
before:

``Their attempt for North America is imminent, 0200 UT Sat on 3955
from Germany. Certainly no signal here at 0138 check if it`s on. Lots
of storm noise and doubt hams will clear the channel. Maybe to east
coast remotes? Glenn``

No replies to that and only an autoreply from MPR. However, by 0255,
Maine SDR was getting a JBA carrier on 3955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13790.049, July 10 at 0622, S7-S9 of
Chinese, the SSOB at this later hour when there might be nothing this
high except in midsummer. RFA via SAIPAN is scheduled, and altho there
is of course ChiCom jamming as well, this off-frequency signal only
points to really Saipan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, July 10 at 2218, quick check of VOT English on TWR
Bonaire SDR as I tune away from WORLD OF RADIO: No signal today.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2042 monitoring: confirmed first WRMI
broadcast, Friday July 10 at 2200 on 9955 --- JBA here, so check
KiwiSDRs where it`s aimed; good at both TWR Bonaire and Pardinho SP
Brasil; occasional trace of jamming underneath at fades.

Also confirmed here at 0139 the 0130 trimulcast on WRMIs: 5010
S9+10/20 vs high storm noise level; 7780 S9/+10 but slightly less
noise; 5850 VG S9+30/40 aimed thisaway. Comparing to Pardinho SP
Brasil at 0150: 5010 best, 5850 sufficient surprisingly since it`s
headed NW from FL; and worse 7780 to the NE. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat July 11 at 0002, tune in WBCQ webcast as
`William Tell Overture` is finishing, `AAAWWW` starting. They always
begin with a similar lovefest of compliments, so is this new? No, soon
they talk about Allan being topless in the FL heat, nicknames, which I
know I have heard before in the last few weeks, so it`s a rerun.
Direct on SW checked at 0018, 7490 is close to .0 and best but only
fairly heard; 6159.9 also active, probably not synchronized, but poor
in noise; and 5130 a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27385-LSB, July 10 at 2053, freebanders hopping all over
11 meters, here one calling CQDX from Mississippi, soon CCI mentioning
South Florida, West Virginia; seems they also have some kind of
numerical IDs. No higher MUF sporadic E DX heard today (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 12500 & 11100, July 9 at 1411, only CNR1 jammers, JBA and
presumed, none others found in the WOOB 10s, 11s, 12s or 13s. Likely
many more were around before 1400* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11631 & 11709, July 10 at 0218, a new set of S9 RHC
spurblobs! plus and minus 39 kHz from 11670, which is S9+20 and
distorted. F# tones also audible on fundamental and spurs, like in the
mornings circa 13700; had also heard them circa 15370 afternoon,
evidently all same transmitter, but the offset quite different here.
Also a trace of second-order with F# circa 11748 and third, 11787, but
could not be sure of a minus match on 11592. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, July 9 at 0628, XEPPM, off-frequency-minus at S9-S7,
and more modulation than usual after JBA carrier yesterday (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, July 9 at 0627, VON is back on nominal channel
today after excursion to 11769.9 yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-AM, July 10 at 0240 rock music, S9 including
heavy storm noise level; YL ID sounds like ``You are tuned to ----
dot.com``; another at 0254 and music stops by 0300*. Many reports here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69271.0.html
as Mix Radio International from 0035, but none later than 0202 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9700, July 9 at 0226, jazz on VG S9+10/20 signal from
what? Not NZ this early, still on much weaker 13840 with someething
else. Answer at 0229 ID: RRI in Spanish, and then found //7375 almost
as good (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28284.8-CW, July 9 at 1449, VVV N9TNY/B EN51, relog of
Geneva IL beacon, slow WPM and long pause between iterations. So
Geneva already has a SW station before any WPBC.

28286.5-CW, July 9 at 1455, WB0BIN, beacon alternating fast and slower
WPMs. WJ5O roster shows:
``28.2865 WBØBIN C SABIN, MINNESOTA # 7W, GP VERTICAL New 22 April
18`` --- Sabin is just SE of Moorhead-Fargo. QRZ.com:

** U S A. 9955, July 9 at 1417, WRMI is on with algo in Spanish, off
by 1443 recheck; contrary to own schedule showing WRMI-3 goes beyond
1400 only on weekends, and the webcast carries Freedom Synergy Radio
M-F at 1400-1500. I suppose that could have been partially in Spanish,
altho when we first monitored it evenings, it kept stuck to English
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15610, July 9 at 2125 check, WEWN English is still AWOL for
at least the sixth day in a row; ditto the night frequency 9385 at
0225 July 10 check. A few summers ago absence was explained due to
mowing the antenna farm, but that should hardly take a week, and
Spanish remains active on 12050/5970 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2042)

** BOLIVIA. 5935, July 8 at 2358, no trace of Radio Yura, and WWCR is
not on yet. That idiot***, SHN in Denmark, had reported it active to
HCDX from *2240 July 6 via remote in Brasil. Followed by Claudio Galaz
in Chile: ``5935. R. YURA. July 7. 0030-0054 UT. Woman talks and
music. 24232, File: https://archive.org/details/152170070743
(Claudio Galaz, Receptor: TECSUN PL - 660; Antenna: Long Wire; QTH:
Ovalle, Chile)``

It`s a 55 second clip, horrible reception, I can`t understand
anything, let alone an ID, sounds distorted, and with buzz noise
level.

***I would never be so rude as to call any fellow DXer an idiot,
unless he has already called me one --- for objecting to Cuban jamming
including vs my own program (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9664.86v, July 8 at 2346, weak signal with Brazilian talk
and hymn, ``He Will Take Care of Me``, so RVM is active again and on
the minus side of nominal 9665 instead of plus or doubleplus (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11780, July 8 at 2352, RNA is S7/S9+5 but seriously
suptorted. // 6180 not distorted and about as strong but noisier
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. Radio Martí is still on the air as usual July 9 at
0008, tho I can`t vouch for program content, 5980, 6030, 7335, 7365
and DRM 7345, all in well at TWR Bonaire and without any jamming
audible there. ``Informativa``, ha, checking since Kim Elliott posted
this:

https://www.radiotelevisionmarti.com/a/aviso-sobre-cambio-de-programaci%C3%B3n/268258.html

``julio 07, 2020, Nota informativa sobre Radio Martí

La Oficina de Transmisiones a Cuba (OCB) anuncia un cambio temporal en
la programación radial a partir de este 7 de julio. Radio Martí inició
una programación especial para atender asuntos técnicos en nuestras
instalaciones. Seguiremos brindando información a nuestros oyentes a
pesar de estas medidas provisionales. Nuestro contenido de noticias y
programas se mantendrá a disposición de nuestra audiencia en la isla a
través de Televisión Martí, la página web
https://www.radiotelevisionmarti.com/
y las redes sociales. Siempre contigo, Radio y Televisión Martí.``

How vague. Richard Langley asks, what about 1180? I don`t know how it
normally makes it to Bonaire SDR, but at 0150 check, not // RM on SW,
presumably only hearing the Rebelde jammer pileup, so maybe Marathon
be off. No, the TWR Key West SDR is hearing them both at 0155 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRELAND [non]. 7290, July 8 at 1800, another anomaly check of IRRS,
ITALY [non] via BULGARIA, via UTwente SDR: Aïda and quick sign-on,
right into `Life Matters`, anti-abortion far-Christian show. But the
Wednesday schedule on nexus-iba website claims instead `Hope for
Today`, so it`s out of date, even more so still showing `War Room
Pandemic` at 1700, cancelled a couple months ago (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 11770, since it appeared earlier July 8 for the
0600 VON broadcast, I wonder if it be on for the scheduled evening
transmissions, or instead one of the other channels? At 1907, no
reception here. At 1930 I tune UTwente SDR, to find 7255 occupied by
Türkish from CRI Kunming site, CHINA; 9690 occupied by SPAIN with no
het; but something very weak about 11769.9 vs huge splash from 11775
CRI German via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN. Checking Kiwi SDRs, there are
only two in the entire continent of Africa, both in RSA, and TWR one
tuned has no reception on 11770. However, the closest S American one
in Pernambuco does get a weak African signal on 11769.9 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed July 8 at 2200, VOT English to North America is
on today, and I`m listening via UTwente SDR where reception is VG
after timesignal 2 seconds delayed as heard here, but there is a
humwhine, continuous except for one brief break. Alan Roe had reported
that the `Letterbox` had finally resumed after a long COVID-19 break,
when he heard it on the real 1230 broadcast on 15450, but not the
exact time, so I keep listening and note a bunch of different features
before it, starting with news on a variety of subjects, and then: 2210
Turkish Press; 2212 Foreign Press; 2214 Turkey leads in aromatic
plants; 2217 Today in History; 2219 Ephesus;

2222-2240 Letterbox program, ``been a long time``. Usual announcer
very informal and seemingly opening letters for the first time, from:
Stu Forsyth in NZ; China; Stefan Korona, Sweden; Pakistan;
UAE-Sharjah; Moscow; Pakistan; UK; Japan; Brasil; Montgomery/Chicago?
USA; Brasil; Malaysia. ``Next L`box in a week, goodbye.`` I did not
check 9830 for direct reception here until 2246, when I found it poor
S6-S9 with music.

As Alan Roe outpoints, ``It seems that some normality is returning to
the English service of Voice of Turkey. The programme today (Wednesday
8 July) heard at 1230 UT on 15450 kHz included the first edition of
the Letterbox Programme for many weeks. The announcer acknowledged
that this was the first edition following the impact of the global
coronavirus pandemic in Turkey. I had heard Letterbox on Wednesdays
back in February, so it looks like this is the confirmed day for the
programme. I still need to confirm, however, whether or not Letterbox
is repeated in its old slot on Saturdays. Alan Roe, Teddington, UK``

** U S A. Sporadic E MUFs easily exceed 28 MHz around the continent,
but not 88 MHz, so I settle again for these 10m hambeacons, July 8 at
2057-2114, 60% relogs, info from WJ5O roster, not exactly measured
here but seem correct. For the two new ones, adding QRZ.com info. I
often have to listen to many repeats to get a definite ID as they tend
to fade out during it; and do not spend even more time to try to copy
the whole spiels:

watts. Antenna is cushcraft 10 meter vertical at about 35 feet. If you
would like a QSL no S.A.S.E. is necessary State side but I do require
one out of the U.S.A. Time and date and signal of beacon as well as
the frequency. Thank You And 73's Ron``

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: confirmed Wed July 8 from
2100:21 on WBCQ 7490.03, JBA here; at 2125 check, fair at Alexandria
SDR, better at Rochester.

Also confirmed UT Thu July 9 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG at UTwente SDR
where it`s aimed. Hellooo to all our listners at 2, 3 or 4 am in

** U S A. 12050, July 8 at 2355, R Católica Mundial QSY announcement
to 5970 and Salve Regina IS chant; 5970 is up with same by 2359. But
they could overlap, admittedly two different transmitters. What
about:

WEWN English, however, still absent from 15610 in the afternoon, and
from 9385 at 0129 July 9 check: just as well, since it`s within one of
my local noise blobs. Does anyone know what the problem is or whether
they have given up on English after drastically reducing it months ago
from the original 24/7? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

I hurried to get this report out before LRA36 closed in case others could hear it, but:

Reception had improved by 1555, no QRM and modulation OK, mostly readable; extended again past 1600, OM announcer breaks into song briefly at 1607; 1614 another song and ``un abrazo grande`` from YL; final credits briefly and song until 1615, off? Not quite, back with a bit more music until plugpull at 1615.7* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

nominally 0030-0400. Mark Coady, Ont., also mentioned not hearing it
in his July 7 report but without a specific date and time, assuming
that was due to poor propagation. But something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, July 8 at 0545, RHC in wrong language, still Spanish
instead of English so not // 6000 JBM, 6145 undermod, and 6100 best,
plus second harmonic 12200, S9/+10 at 0553. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, July 8 at 0548, at first seems XEPPM is AWOL, no
signal, but then a JBA carrier and offset-minus, so probably it but
QRP, exciter only? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 11769.904V, slightly unstable, July 8 at 0554, guess what,
VON is trying a third frequency for the 0600 Hausa broadcast, instead
of 7254.9 or 9689.9, both of which have been heard recently but vacant
now. Or a mistake? This is normally its evening channel only. HOA-type
music at tune in; 0558 IS of drum and flutish; 0600 first spoken word
is ``Nigeria``. This is the SSOB, equivalent to 12200 Cuba harmonic,
stronger than 11895 Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer vs RFA via Saipan, and
much stronger than 11835 Vanuatu harmonic. What`s next, 15120? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 89.5, July 8 at 0240 UT and beyond, still there at 1550,
strong open carrier with $ tereo pilot on, encountered as I am
fruitlessly bandscanning for sporadic E DX since there`s a 106 MHz MUF
spike around Wyoming. 89.5 is one of our few almost-open frequencies.
Nearest full-powers are KWGS in Tulsa and KHCD in Salina, but there is
no enhancement from other stations in those areas and both are
normally inaudible. Perhaps a neighbor`s unoccupied RF feeder?
Certainly not mine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Wed July 8 at 0125, WTWW-2 has Ted asserting it`s
``the real QSO``, after rock music and before Jesus plug; 0136 recheck
Tedad for power supplies, and another Jesus plug. If this is ``QSO
RADIO SHOW LIVE TUESDAY 8 PM CENTRAL ON 5085`` per
http://wtww.us/pages/schedule.php
he`s veering it way off-topic. 5085 is already off at 0544 check;
sometimes runs later than nominal midnight CDT close.

This page also presents a totally imaginary multi-lingual 24-hour
schedule for 15810! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1556 UT July 8
