Hauser
** BRAZIL. 11905-11910-11915, Jan 25 at 0445, checking RNA DRM into
TWR Bonaire SDR: ``Madrugada Nacional 96.1`` ID and romantic music,
partly in English, ``Kiss Me, Baby`` at 0454. Frequent ID breaks
between tunes. SN 16.7 dB, 12.46 kbps with ``perfect`` reception tho
fi not so hi; also with Service 2 Journaline one-line headline
rotation mostly concerning COVID; but no mentions of Bolsonaro (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13841 approx., Jan 25 around 1500 --- my logpen failed to ink
at first --- F# tone signature of RHC spurblob, too close to the BS on
13845-AM WWCR; then finding lots of others, back to ``normal`` pattern
of circa plus/minus 69 kHz multiples from 13700-AM: 13769 S8, 13631,
13562, 13494 S4 vs CODAR, 13426 trace; 13908, 13976; and 14045 F#
trace. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Jan 25 at 0006, VP S3-S4 of dense low
music. Mushy reduced carrier? These logs say it`s Mushroom Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,77218.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2070 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
January 24 from 2300:05 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.934, S8-S9; ending at
2329:05 barely not cut off. Stood by earlier to hear carrier with WBCQ
IS & ID loop cut on at *2256:08, no ID or s/on but a bit of music from
2259:45 before WOR start.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 25 at 0043 the 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG
S9+30/40 direct.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 25 at 0230 on WRMIs: 7780, S9+5/15
via UTwente; 5800, S9+10/25 via Bonaire SDR; and WRN web/satcast

Also confirmed Monday January 25 from 1900:49 on IRRS 7290 via
Bulgaria, via UTwente SDR usual bilateral splasheral from 7280 Vietnam
and 7295 East Turkistan, standard denunciation, inevitable but WOR
still readable if you upput. 29 minutes later ending with pause rather
than upcut before ID and more FSN. For timings this time also via
UTwente, as Alan Gale suggested, I compare with MSF on 60 kHz and
DCF77 on 77.5, with a clearer minute-marker on the former, hardly any
internet delay compared to WWV direct. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** VENEZUELA. 6200+RCUSB, Jan 25 at 0433 tune-in via Bonaire KiwiSDR,
immediate ID as ``ROCV en 6200 kHz``, back to tropical music. SAM mode
shows carrier frequency slightly fluxuating plus 4-6 Hz, S5-S7 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CHINA. 13530, Jan 24 at 1458, JBA fluttery carrier until 1500*, no
doubt CNR1 jammer against SOH starting to repropagate; but none heard
just above or below 13000 yet; however, a weak open carrier at 13001
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13766 approx., Jan 24 at 1453, RHC with Marta Rios about
propagation, so `En Contacto` reading Arnie script must be running
late beyond 1450`s `En Compañía del Doctor`. Anyhow, 13700-AM is
putting out lots of spurblobs but not in the usual pattern. For a
change there are no F# tones with them! Rather low-pitched hums, best
audible in FM mode, not AM. They are quite diffuse and harder than
usual to guess a center frequency. First one is +66 kHz, paired with
-63 kHz circa 13637, but there are others at mid-intervals: 13668 with
no mod, 13605 vs residual jamming, 13576; 13729, 13795, 13828, 13887,
13949. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. 1566, Jan 24 at 1342, awake just in time to check on
the longwire, JBA carrier surely from FEBC, and at 1344
near-imagination-level 3+1 timepips as definitely heard before when
their antenna is switching from N Korea to China heading. Of course I
could easily confirm this via remotes, if I were ever up and running
computer by now. The winter window for direct reception is steadily
closing, as our sunrise earlies, 1338 today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 12125, Jan 24 at 1544, JBA tonal talk at S9; strixe me
as an unusual frequency, but now Aoki-scheduled this hour only as CNR1
jammer and/or RFA Tibetan via TINIAN, NMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4724-USB, Jan 24 at 0730, US military crypto message with
always self-imposed heavy reverb/echo; also with continuous
whine/siren noise, pitch varying very slightly; message header
repeated several times fonetikaly: VOFJ3G; brief ``stand by``s and
transmission breaks. Usually IDs as ``Andrews``, I think, but not
positive I heard that this time. Or is it a different tactical ID each
time? See a previous report:

``4724-USB // 8992-USB, Feb 9 at 0041, US military crypto
alfanumeric fonetik string with usual reverb and clix between
characters. EiBi calls these ``US Air Force Messages``, on six
frequencies all available 24 hours, the others being 6739, 11175,
13200 and 15016. But where are they, really? And are they significant
or mere exercise? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2070 monitoring: Larry Will posted
to WOR iog at 0600 UT Jan 24: ``1/24, 0555, 6160am. World of Radio
2070, impromptu broadcast, s15/s20, very good here in Maryland.``

Tnx; yes, on WBCQ A51 webcast, but unheard on KB0FX SDR in MO, nor on
Alexandria VA SDR close to Larry --- JBA carrier of something at best
by the time I check it at 0609 midpoint of WOR; maybe not on air by
then? Next:

2300vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE

UNIDENTIFIED. 5750, Jan 24 at 0735, JBA carrier: best guess: a rare
leapfrog mixing product of WRMI 5950 over 5850 another 100 kHz beyond,
both with Brother HyStairical (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALBANIA [non]. 7780, Sat Jan 23 until 2300, R. Tirana theme via
WRMI closing 2230 relay; and then immediately on 5850, R. Tirana theme
opening 2300 relay after mixture with WRMI Spanish ID (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Jan 23 at 2313, RHC S9/+25 but quite undermodulated.
With that much S, usual parasitic spurs should be detectable as JBA
carriers on 11840 & 11860, but they are not. 11850 transmitter finally
fixed, or swapped to another one? Something`s always wrong at RHC.
Checking whether on 11805 instead, per this earlier report:

`11805. RHC. Enero 20. 0122-0128 UTC. Durante el momento escuchado se
habla del Coronavirus en Cuba. 55555. Se nota que es el transmisor de
la frecuencia de 11850 por la potencia. ¿Cambio de frecuencia para
evitar otras interferencias de emisoras chinas? (Claudio Galaz,
Receptor: TIVDIO V-111; Antena: Hilo largo de 50 metros, Lugar de
escucha: Barraza Bajo, IV Región, Chile)`` --- I guess that was a
keypad punchup error (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Jan 24 at 0145, this RHC is off; but back on in Spanish
at 0213 check. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GUAM. 15215, Jan 23 at 2317, VP talk S3-S5, as KSDA scheduled this
hour in Chinese; slightly stronger 15330 would be KSDA in Vietnamese
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. Re my report of 1548 kHz, Radio Sawa, and tonight`s JBA
carrier search: In connexion with the shakeups at USAGM stations, this
story
https://www.politico.com/news/2021/01/22/biden-victoria-coates-anonymous-461532
mentions ``The relaunch of Radio Sawa Wednesday night was followed by
an outage Thursday morning when the network went off the air.`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Jan 23 at 2305, pirate with torch song,
S9+5/20, then rapid Latin instrumental tune; 2324 recheck is off.
Several logs here as Goat Cheese Radio, by Zeke(y):
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,77144.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4055-USB, Jan 24 at 0148 rock music at S9+10, 0152
Wolverine Radio ID and another tune. First time I`ve heard it on 74m;
0214 recheck in SSTV beepery, pulse rate 144/min = 2.4 per second,
like the other one, and off. But during last part of SSTV and
continuing, also hearing some much weaker JBA talk and music also on
4055-USB, when in clear at S6 = the noise level. One HFU reporter,
raypfaff, also noticed: ``Off after that? I can hear something in the
background, but much lower signal than before.`` Another pirate?

Not TGAV; for a split second when first tuned, I had suspected Radio
Verdad was repaired from Guatemala -- but not with rock in English and
no LSB! Use it or lose it; has Dr Madrid given up? Many more logs of
Wolverine:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4810, Jan 24 at 0147, JBA carrier, which is the best we can
expect from Radio Chazuta, reported still active, vs the huge STANAG
blob mostly on the plus side. There is also weaker CODAR audible both
on USB and LSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2070 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
January 23 from 2036 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, VG via local Kiwi
pickup.

Also confirmed Sat Jan 23 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, good/sufficient on
DX-398 portable with whip; some lite jamming audible under by the
end.

Also confirmed Sat Jan 23 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, S3-S5.

Also confirmed UT Sun Jan 24 from 0424 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, The Gateway

** U S A. (6159.93v), Jan 24 at 0302-0401, via A51 WBCQ webcast,
`Texas Radio Shortwave` special, good rock music and the synthetic DJ
voice of Cap`n Ric himself with patrician/Britishish accent, hardly
piratical. Didn`t get any notes as at same time I have to listen to
`Weekend Ra-dio` on WCLV webcast during same hour, and multitaskingly
compile this report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Jan 24 at 0144, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` underway,
but thorgan music with usual distortion on SW and the computer not
handy for hifi $ tereo webcast, so dispensed with this week (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Jan 24 at
0157-0204: 531, 576, 585, 612, 621, 639, 657(2), 684, 693, 711, 747,

Last report subjected Jan 23 should have been concerning Jan 22

** ALBANIA [non]. Re: Opera Singer profile on Radio Tirana 22/1/21...

``Glenn, As you said, this has been discussed previously but I’ll
mention again that the singer would be Gaqo Çako (pronounced GA-chyoh
CHA-Koh). Passed away 1/8/18

RT`s signature tune “Këputa një gjethe dafine" was his song that won
the 1978 Festivali I Kënges (Song Festival). He was apparently a
participant in 28 FIK’s and won 3 times.

Regarding a building being demolished --- are we talking about the
RTSH HQ in downtown Tirana? I walked past the facilities back in 2010
(just down the road from the still-intact former home of Enver Hoxha)
and would not be surprised if it’s being renovated. When I was there,
Albania was a whole big construction site and Tirana’s current mayor
is keen on modernising the city. - Regards, BRIAN POWELL VK2XBP,
Sydney, Australia``

``Hi, > Regarding a building being demolished: That's most likely
about the old building of Radio Tirana (the station moved out of it in
1965). I believe the demolishing has nothing to do with the RTSH
current building on Rruga Ismail Qemali.

https://exit.al/en/2021/01/11/historic-radio-tirana-building-looks-set-to-be-demolished/
73, Dmitry Mezin, Kazan/RUS``

``Thanks for the clarification, Dmitry! I was aware there was the old
premises of RT and they were repurposed in the communist era but I
assumed that would have been demolished long ago. Then again, I would
have thought Enver`s house would have been demolished, but it still
stands right in the middle of the now-trendy Blloku neighbourhood. --
Regards, BRIAN POWELL, VK2XBP, Sydney, Australia`` (WOR iogroup via
gh, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11905-11910-11915, Jan 23 at 0327, RNA DRM via Bonaire SDR
with S/N only 7.4 to 8.4 dB but good decode, mostly music. Displays
Service 1 as ``AAC(A2B000) Brasil DRM Exp EEP Data 12.46 kbps``; and
Service 2 as ``(A2B001) DRM Journaline EEP Data 2.30 kbps``
with a few rotating one-line headlines displayed, such as about COVID
in Amazonas; 0348 now S5-S6, S/N 11.9 dB, 12.46 kbps with solid tho
lofi copy, voice ID ``Nacional FM 96.1, música brasileira em primeiro
lugar`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 284-MCW kHz, Jan 23 at 0712 UT, ND beacon QD with dash, in
The Pas, Manitoba, except it`s totally miskeyed as ``ЯС`` -- Cyrillic;
the Russians are coming!2 .-.-/... as previously explained (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9155, Jan 23 at 0745, assertive YL in Chinese at S5-S9, //
weaker S3-S5 9280, both CNR1 jamming frequencies against Sound of Hope
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also TAIWAN [non]

** CUBA. 13508 vs CODAR, 13572 S6, 13636 S9+20, 13766 S9, 13831 S7-S9,
13896 S2, 13964 trace, all approx., spurblobs out of 13700-AM RHC
which is S9+20, mostly music at 1535 Jan 23. Closer ones quite
readable in FM or AM modes with F# tone, totally unreadable in SSB;
wide but intervals of approx. 65 kHz; peters out just in time not to
show above 14000 in hamband. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15350, Jan 23 at 1550, S5-S6, rapid clickbeepery,
signature of that defective Issoudun, FRANCE transmitter, also talk in
presumed Hausa during DW`s Saturday-only silly-ballgame service,
except does not sound like play-by-play; no crowd noise because being
played without an audience? Also // 15195 slightly stronger with no
beepclix. Both nominally 500 kW, only 7 degrees apart, 172 and 165
azimuths respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUINEA [and non]. 9650, Jan 23 at 0742, S7-S9 French talk atop some
music, i.e. sporadically active RTG, vs North Korea`s multihour
Japanese service starting at 0700. Guinea should be in clear from its
*0600 after Cuban 0500* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Jan 22 at 2157-2230*, e-QSL from RADIO
NOVA received 5 minutes after they must have seen my last log report
posted; fortunately, since I had their email address wrong and had not
yet sent directly to them; it`s radionovausa2020@gmail.com
Illustration on QSL is same as on SSTV closing image. Thanks!
It`s now #109 in my QSL gallery:
http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html
in addition to previous Radio Novas #89 and #94, also on 6935-USB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. Freedom Synergy Radio, the pro-Taiwan program via
WRMI appears to be connected to the wacko Falun Gong cult; an item on
WRMI FB about FSR linx to a long article in the FG`s Epoch Times; the
same Trumper folx responsible for Sound of Hope and provoking huge
jamming network (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

announcement mentioning e-mail, 1558 dead air with flutter past 1600
when there is a trace of modulation. HFCC shows Vatican Radio in
Amharic via SMG, at 1600 switching to Swahili via MADAGASCAR. Radio
Martí and jamming 11930 not a problem at first with USB tuning (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.84, Jan 23 at 0212, JBA carrier, maybe trace of
modulation, suspected off-frequency MW harmonic e.g. from 1480-, Latin
American? I`ve searched old logs and can`t find anything other than
Mobile, Alabama, but which was not off-frequency. Now I also try
several SDRs in LAm and USA, but nothing. Maybe just a local birdie
but bears further checking, also other former harmonic spots, 2940v,
2860v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALBANIA [non]. 5850, Friday January 22 at 2300 checking secret R.
Tirana relay via WRMI: certainly not the same episode I heard 8 days
ago and seems current rather than pre-Xmas. As always sign-on claims
RT is heard ``only on internet`` refusing even to recognize this SW
airtime, probably donated. Program previews: news, press review,
profile. Caster is YL this time rather than OM. Signal very strong but
also high local noise level, plus accent makes it hard to follow. Does
mention date January 20, 2021 in connexion with something. 2307
so-called Press Review seems all about industrial and agricultural
produxion statistics just like in the good-ole Stalinist days; also
funding for a hydro power project with date mentioned January 27,
2021. 2313 into Profile of an opera singer born 24.1.35. His name
mentioned once at the start and I could not catch it at all; they
should at least spell names of such subjects for us ignorant
listeners. Example played: him singing the tune which is also RT`s
theme song; identity and source of which we discussed in detail last
year.

As for the Jan 14 show I heard before, Richard Lemke, St. Albert,
Alberta, replies about that: ``Dear Glenn: WRMI, 5850 kHz, 2300 UT.
After hearing the Mailbag Show on Radio Tirana on Jan 12, 13, 14, 15,
Yes, I did hearing confirming the same program with mail from FL and
how Albanians celebrate Christmas. According to information that I
heard from Sheldon Harvey, the building on site has been demolished,
is gone. I tried to send an e mail that got returned to me very fast.
Richard Lemke, January 21, 2021`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11815+, Jan 22 at 0253, checking for something else at
Pardinho SP SDR, I find splatter down past 11810, from this with music
and Brazuguese talk, S9+15/25, in SynchAM mode displaying slight
carrier offset+plus varying 10-12 Hz; and to the ear rather distorted.
I.e. must be R. Brasil Central, Goiânia, active here but rarely
detected direct (nor on 4985); perhaps with summer sporadic E boost.
Distance 718 km = 446 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 290-MCW kHz, Jan 22 at 0726 UT, dash and QR, 100-watt ND
beacon at Regina, Saskatchewan. This area of LW is often blocked by
local noise blob peak (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13629 & 13770 approx., Jan 22 at 1452, just traces of
spurblobs from RHC 13700; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 6115, Jan 22 at 0715, song at S9+10/20, seems too strong for
R. Nikkei, let alone Congo; quite a bit stronger than the other JOZ,
S9+10 on 6055. Fleeting thought, maybe RHC jumped off frequency? 0719
song, ``Love Was Made For Me And You``, letter by letter in English
and then announcement sounds Japanesish English; no J signals yet on
75m to compare vs hams. But must be Nikkei (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Jan 22 at 2157, rock music past 2200, fair
signal; 2205 synthyl ID for Radio Nova and address
radionova2020@gmail.com; more music none recognized; 2221 ID; 2224
loon? calls mixed with voice ID by synthom, modulated Morse code RADIO
NOVA, ID again, 2226 repeat loons and MCW ID; 2227 occasional
bird/nature calls, about to go off? No, one more voice ID at 2228 and
SSTV beepery until 2230* seems really finished. SSTV pulsing was at
rate of about 144/minute, or 2.4 per second -- restarting each scan
line? More reports and images here, none of them sharp:
