Hauser
** ALASKA. 9580, Aug 23 at 1451, English S7-S9 starting `Creation
Moment`, in KNLS English hour. What a pity any airtime be wasted on
that anti-scientific nonsense by this and other gospel huxter stations
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, continued from last report, of the Sat
Aug 22 broadcast of LRA36: by 1700 was down to S1-S3 via one Brazilian
SDR, still detectable past 1800; at 1902 I switch to another SDR which
is getting it better at S4-S7 as they are again talking about San
Martín and an escuela; 1944 recheck going from talk to music which
runs still past 2000+. No further chex, unknown when they closed
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 23 at 1330: only JBA carriers with
flutter: 13835, 13160, 13130, 12880, 12500. Other WOOBs not checked as
Arnie Coro is imminent, see CUBA.

At 1447 I check the lower 9s only: JBA carriers 9155, 9170; but
Chinese on 9215 at S5-S8, 9255 at S5-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700 & 13740, Aug 23 at 1330, RHC fails to provide any
spurblobs, but seemingly live briefing in an echoey venue about
COVID-19 rates in leading countries, USA, Brasil, India, compared to
Cuba. Keeps running past 1335, outro as from a doctor in the public
health service; also mentioned meteorological events, i.e. the two
hurricanes, one of them named for a Cuban-American.

At 1340, `En Contacto` starts 5 minutes late, first the YL co-host
with platitudes, finally bringing up the fibre-optic link from Arnie
at home. QSL OTA to Uruguay and elsewhere; emergency nets on 2, 40 and
80 meters, but his almost-self-garbled lickety-split pace prevents me
froom copying the frequencies; Aug 22 was 90th anniversary of radio in
Cuba; propagation info; music fill until 1355, and then the medical
no-show. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 5800, UT Sun Aug 23 at 0300, routine check for WORLD OF
RADIO at a good WRMI time we have enjoyed for a few weeks --- but
instead, CUBAN NA plays and then Radio República! See my comments
under USA: WOR monitoring. Until now, RMI has brokered R.R. broadcasts
only via Issoudun, France on 9490, where the noise jamming also goes,
but those have been ending at 0300 during DST. Now they have another
hour, announced at 0356 as new frequency on Thursdays thru Sundays at
11pm-midnight = 0300-0400 UT Fri thru Mon. Not jammed yet, but this
will surely subject another WRMI frequency besides 9955 to that, and
by the shoddy Cubans not only during this hour or those days. 5800
goes off at 0400*. HFCC A-20 shows RMI via ISS registered at
0300-0500, but also Nauen at same time with NHK Japanese to ME, and
confirmed by UTWente monitoring as only the latter really on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, UT Sun Aug 23 at 0400, Bill Tilford experimenting
with a 10 kW ND relay via Channel 292 of his FTIOM and UBMP. Into
Maine, propagation from Europe seems fine, e.g. 9420 Greece S7-S9. On
9670, hardly anything audible at UTwente over all-dark, minimum-MUF,
too-close path; via SDR in Maine he`s detectable at 0403 with
multi-lingual intro, but JBA VP S4-S5, unusable. 0440 recheck,
inaudible. He was hoping to serve North America; maybe better eastward
into the dayside. I reminded the 900 members of the WOR iog about this
at 0340 as imminent, but not a single other report received (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Aug 23 at 0608, JBA carrier presumed R.
Kiribati, with no other 9-kHz audible from Eurafrica (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** MALI. Posted to the WOR iog at 1853 UT Aug 22: ``Re: [WOR] Check
for Radio Mali on 5995 kHz. --- Of course 1850 UT Saturday is normally
the time for weekly English segment, right now. So far at 1852 only
African singing, via UTwente. Glenn`` and still past 1900 African
music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun Aug 23 at 0022, The Mighty KBC is
VP S2-S4, no good propagation this week. Assume they will revert to
5960 in September, none too soon, but no confirmation of that yet;
except HFCC registrations show the descent happening between Sept 5
and 6. via Nauen, Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Aug 23 at 0602, no signal from VON --- oh, cuts on
in progress at *0603, but JBM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Saturday evening is supposedly prime-time for
pirates, but UT Sun Aug 23 at 0015, I find not a one in the 6.9s or
5.1s. So I am trying, and other evenings have been barren too despite
other specialized DXers reporting lots of them (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 22 at 2211 check, NO signal from VOT English to
us even at UTwente, instead weak signal from CNR1 Beijing site, which
is scheduled southward at 2025-0100 --- fortunately never hear any QRM
from that over here. Now I have missed two weeks of `Letterbox` and
hope to get around to listening to the Radio360 podcasts for Weds Aug
12 & 19 or Sats 15 & 22. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2048 monitoring: confirmed Sat Aug
22 at 2002 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, via KiwiSDR a few km
away in Warrenton, VG S8 about 4 minutes into so started circa 1958
instead of nominal 1930.

Also confirmed Sat Aug 22 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, newish time, S9+10 at
UTwente.

NOT confirmed UT Sun Aug 23 at 0300 on WRMI 5800. I wrote to Jeff
White: ``Hi Jeff, Well, that was a shock - Cuban NA and R República on
5800 at 0300 instead of WOR, no such thing on your skeds or website or
FB yet. If it`s one hour, maybe you can still run WOR at 0400? I`m
guessing they wanted to run past 0300 and 9490 France is unavailable
as NHK via Nauen is on it. Now, stand by for jamming on 5800 at this
and times beyond! And/or if you could find *any* time for WOR on 5850,
7570, 9395 or 9455, that would be great. Glenn``. See also CUBA
[non].

Confirmed UT Sun Aug 23 starting at 0326.8 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM via
Warrenton MO SDR, S5-S8 sufficient vs storm noise level. Next:

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Aug 23 at 0018, WHRI is S9+25 but JBM with
music, presumed VOV English relay; then bumps up to merely
undermodulated; also has Cuban pulse jamming splash all the way from
7335. People are speculating whether these relays continue after WBCQ
takeover; may depend on renewal or prolongation of contracts with
Encompass (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Aug 23 at 0023, WTWW-2 with hardsell Tedad, no
TONITO yet; 0035 recheck is underway presenting performance by someone
else, now deceased, ending at 0057 so started circa 0027 this week. I
immediately brought up the $ tereo webcast instead.

BTW, besides the degraded audio on 5085, it`s still always accompanied
by JBA spurcarriers circa 5072.1 & 5097.9. And this:

``I know WTWW on 5085 KHz has contained very noticeable audio
distortion for years. Sounds like a portable with weak batteries. It
has low-end punch, mind you, but is totally ruined with this annoying
distortion in the mix. If one uses narrower IF bandwidth filters, this
will not be so noticeable.

UNIDENTIFIED. 15151.42-USB approx., Aug 23 at 1444, 2-way in Spanish
on a longtime occasional INTRUDER frequency, keywords barco and puta
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

Note: with the suspension of compiled DX LISTENING DIGEST issues, our
kicker finale sexion has also disappeared. But gh would still like to
provide access to some rational not always on-topic commentary, not
really intended to provoke any further discussion. Here`s one from our
local newspaper by their best columnist:

Ha, WTFK? I never got around to mentioning the WCSZ frequency, altho it should be obvious, but for the record: 1070.

LRA36 still going past 1800. Glenn

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Saturday August 22 at 1442, LRA36
already on with songs at S2-S4 via Brasil KiwiSDR; 1444 usual canned
ID for `Corazón Antártico` and phone, e-mail contact info. 1517 song,
1518 another ID; still going 1603 music, by 1700 down to S1-S3. Still
past 1735. JBA by 1748. No telling how much longer. Not really
readable now or earlier. We were expecting this to start at 1630 like
previous Saturdays, presumably replaying the Wednesday show; tnx to
Manuel Méndez, Spain, who was barely getting it direct from sign-on
*1409 with Morse code (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 11232-USB, Aug 21 at 2352 selcall tones, and 2-way
mentioning maybe Lajes (Azores) but this is EiBi-listed as Trenton
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. Why not, check a different daypart than usual circa 1400 for
CNR1 jammers, Aug 21 at 2347, and there are a few on typical
frequencies: 13530 JBA vs CODAR, 13160 & 14850 JBA fluttery carriers,
14920 Chinese at S5-S7; none in the 15s, 16s, 10s or 11s (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 22 at 1355-1400*; none in 16s; 15165
& 15130; JBA carriers 14920, 14870, 14850; 13920 S4-S6, 13835, 13530,
13150, 13130; 12190; more than JBA on 11170, 10870 S7, 10820.

Aug 22 at 1425: JBA on 10870, 11100, 11150, 11170; 11440 two JBA
carriers beating; 12820 & 12835 S8-S9, 12880; none in the lower 9s
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5055, Aug 22 at 0614, mixture of talk and music, NOT
AUSTRALIA! But leapfrog mixing product another 15 kHz beyond, of 5025
Rebelde over 5040 RHC English, the latter on later than usual, and
with same extreme modulation breaking up `Ed Newman` on both. 5055 is
S9+10; 5040 is S9+20/30; 5025 with good music modulation is also
S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Both fundamentals
listed as Bauta site. There is no reverse leapfrog on 5010, luckily
for WRMI earlier. 0616 Rebelde YL ID and TC for 2:16 am (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sat Aug 22 at 0605, no signal from VON, nor any on
alternatives as have happened: 9690-, 11770-, let alone 15120 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. 11254-USB, Aug 21 at 2353, roboyl with VOLMET for a number of
``xxx international`` airports, hard to copy names. EiBi lists as RAF.
``No information available`` for several; maybe mentions Congo,
Brazzaville. Still there at 0142 Aug 22 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2048 monitoring: confirmed first
WRMI airing, Friday August 21 at 2310 the 2300 on 9955, good into
BSR-1 caradio on a non-DXpedition a few statute miles north of Enid;
no jamming audible.

Also confirmed UT Sat Aug 22 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, S3-S6 to TWR
Bonaire SDR, S5-S7 to TWR DR; 7780 VG S9+20 into UTwente. 0143
checking these here direct: 7780 poor S6-S7 in HSNL; 9955 good S9+10
with fadedowns, no jamming audible.

Slept past 1330 UT Sat Aug 22; did anyone hear 1300+ on WRMI 15770? Or
1130 on 9955 where it`s still on sked but gone weeks ago? Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (6160, 7490), UT Sat Aug 22 at 0000, Area 61 webcast, which
otherwise is 5130 programming, is running late with `Old Tyme Radio`,
an Amos & Andy reproduxion episode by Ed Bolton, which used to be a
regular on WBCQ, and NOT on the ``proposed`` schedule we got, instead
of Superman, so will have to join `AAAWWW` late, as WTO theme has
already started on 7490 webcast. I listen more or less to whole hour
hoping for more info on the WHRI acquisition, but not much other than
waiting for the deal to close. Looking for engineers and operators in
Maine: pay is good but not much benefits, and cost of living is low,
good place if you like winter sports. Applicants will be interviewed
(remotedly?). Over the years some 50 expensive tubes have been
returned for rebuilding. 0020 sez quadri-casting tonight on 3265,
5130, 6160, 7490, 21 August YOOL 2020; and now it`s dark at this hour
as summer is latening, days shortening. 0022 A&A get into vicious
political rants totally anti-Democratic and pro-Trumpic. Democratic
states are Communist-controlled. Biden and Kamala are jokes. Need
mega-landslide for Trump. They go on to accuse Dems of elexion hijinx
which are really what the Trumpublicans are doing! 0035 phone call
finally from someone contradicting them, disappointed they are
ignoring the incredible misconduct and lies of Trump, complete failure
handling the pandemic. Angela shouts him down, while Allan accepts his
free-speech right to disagree. It`s Bryan in West Chester PA. 0050
into e-mails, about WHRI? Going to fix up the facility in Furman.
Dedicated to keeping SW alive at that 250/500 kW level. There are good
people at WHRI; and he keeps referring to ``Le-See-A``.

Here`s John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 and a few seconds later on
5130 and 6160. Voice over during the theme song set the tone.
Something about rioting, looting, pillaging, cop shootings all brought
about by the Democrats. Allan and Angela in the studio along with some
sexy talk and then into a rundown of all the equipment in the studio.
Brief mentions of the MW and FM stations. Also another plea for
qualified engineers to help run the superstation. Then into full blown
political talk and Angela becomes animated. Among other things she
suggested that all Democrats be loaded on a pod and sent to Mars.

Phone call at 0035 from a gentleman attacking Trump's stand on the
Covid thing and his mishandling of the problem which sent Angela from
animated to agitated and a shouting match erupted between the caller
and Angela. Allan did his best to calm things down.

Reading of emails at 0050. First email asked about the purchase of
WHRI and Allan stated that the facility would be broadcasting a lot of
programming from WLC and that more details would be available later.
Allan stated that they had been getting a lot of positive emails about
the Old Time Radio show on 6160. Allan asked Angela to lead the
closing prayer this evening and she started but was cut off by the end
of the program at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. At 0428 UT Aug 22 I first posted this to several DX groups:

``WCSZ DX test from SC, OK to OK --- I am posting before reading
reports from anyone else about this. On R75 with E-W
longwire, already aimed in right direxion. 0357 UT Aug 22 tune-in to
usual jumble of presumed KNX, KFTI and more jumble. 0402 UT: suddenly
absolutely clear Morse code ID: VVV DE WCSZ, twice or was it thrice?
No voice IDs or any announcements heard so far. But none needed after
the above. 0404 UT: Handel`s Messiah, Hallelujah Chorus until 0410.
Then some other music, no ID heard but may have been lost in QRM. 0412
tune-out but may recheck later. Unknown how long test runs.

Sometimes atop, generally mixing with news/talk presumed KNX, and
country music presumed from KFTI Wichita which is low power {1 kW} at
night, but too close to here and always an annoyance since it`s
significantly off-frequency-minus. Now {on USB} I have been adjusting
the PBT to get rid of the LAH if not all of its modulation. Tnx for
the test. Pse QSL if possible.

New NRC AM Log says: U4 50000/1500; STA U1 2000/375 - tech issues. U4
means different direxional patterns day and night. But FCC AM Query
says ND day, direxional night. NRC Pattern Book 2013 shows ND day
circular pattern, I think, very crowded map with all those other 1070s
in the SE. So was this test really ND, and how much power at the
start? Until the next, Best of DX and 73 de Glenn Hauser, P O Box
1684, Enid OK 73702``

I did recheck a couple more times just as Morse IDs played again: VVV
DE WCSZ WCSZ WCSZ, at 0443.5 and 0459.5 UT. Later widely reported as
far as Norway, and Seattle --- but I bet not much closer to KNX. 1404
km = 873 stmi from Sans Souci SC to Enid; Greenville market.

The code IDs were a welcome surprise as earlier publicity said there
would be no such thing, nor sweep tones, etc. Test committee chairman
Les Rayburn in AL now says: ``The DX Test was operated by engineer Al
Hajny. His e-mail address is: alhajny@gmail.com Mr. Hajny has a
history of being very friendly to DX’ers. Let’s be respectful of that
relationship. He has not stated if he plans to verify reception
reports. I know he’s a busy guy, so if he doesn’t respond quickly,
please be patient (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. JBA 9-kHz MW carrier search Aug 22 at 0607: 936 the only
one, Morocco? Not even 711 or 846-Kiritimati, off? K-index at 0600 was
2, no storms per WWV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7348-CW, or slightly less, Aug 22 at 0619 long string of
numbers in fast CW, but also some letters. Ends with K, but never
heard any DE and ID. Probably unrelated to this in EiBi:
``7345 0600-1600 CHN V26 Numbers Station USB M FE xx``

** CANADA. 248-MCW kHz, Aug 21 at 0555 UT, dash and WG, 1000 watt ND
beacon from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Only Canadian ever heard among seven
listed on 248, two of them also a kilowatt, and four of them also with
2-letter calls lacking a Y- or -Z, but all with a dash of course.

346-MCW kHz, Aug 21 at 0601, dash and YXL, 500 watt NDB from Sioux
Lookout, Ontario. It`s way NW of Thunder Bay, not an area we associate
today with the Sioux First Nation. This does not explain where the
name came from:

https://www.northernontario.travel/sunset-country/7-interesting-facts-about-sioux-lookout
but a ``Lac Seul`` figures in its history so I wonder if Seul was
mistaken as ``Sioux``? -- pronounced soo/sue. Such interesting
learning experiences provided by beacon DXing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 20 at 1449: 15110, 14850 S3-S5,

** CUBA. 6012-6048, Aug 20 at 0545, noise jamming against no Martí
audible out to plus/minus 18 kHz range from very strong center 6030.
Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC: extremely distorted
spurblobs out of 13700 transmitter, more than usual, 14 of them, Aug
21 at 1352-1401, approx., stronger closer ones spreading up to 10 kHz

** U S A. 7505, Aug 20 at 0102 check, WRNO still AWOL (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. JBA MW carrier search of 9-kHz frequencies, Aug 20 at
0617: only 711, 846 and 1071. 846 no doubt regular Kiritimati but
never with audio; 711 Cuba or Morocco barely? 1071 intriguing with no
Europeans more than 10 kW, no NZ/Australians more than 5. Several
ME/Africans but too daytime. Of course there`s that megawatt in India,
but way too early for that. Note that het/carriers 1 kHz off 10 kHz
frequencies are often easier to detect than further in between with
lots of splash from both sides (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. JBA MW carrier search Aug 21 at 0550: 621, 846, 882,
1125 with two beating. Presumed Canary, Kiritimati; 882 has another
low-powered Canarian; and 1125 several low-powered continental
Spaniards (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Aug 19 at 1445, it`s Wednesday so
another regular broadcast of LRA36 should be underway from 1400. Not a
trace direct but that`s normal now. But via Brazilian SDR, not a trace
either at tune-in 1453 or so, but I keep listening as it suddenly pops
on --- I think, rather than fading in --- at *1456 with music and talk
only S2; mostly chat past 1505; 1515 song; 1522 canned ID as ``La
Radio Pública``, 1523 contact info with phone numbers, emails; 1525
into historical talk about San Martín doing something on 17 de agosto
de 1850, unlikely anything about Antarctica, past 1530 now peaking S5;
mostly talk but 1553 song; 1556.5 ID and music; 1600.5 ``continuamos
con Corazón Antártico``, chat; 1610 mentions pandemia, 1617 song,
1622* off abruptly. I had notified the WOR iog at 1519, but no one
else reported it: guess RNASG is getting to be ho-hum, at least unless
we can DX it directly. Presumably will resume circa 1630 this Saturday
unlike last week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey Aug 19 at 1353-1400: none in 16s; in the
15s against VOA Thailand, Philippines, respectively on 15165, 15130,
but not surely confirmed whether jammer or not; most rest JBA carriers
except better Chinese audible*: 13835*, 13130, 13070, 13020 12210,
12190, 11460, 11440, 11150, 11120*, 11100, 10920, 9300, 9280*, 9215
until timesignal and off 9300 a few sex after 1400*. Inband 11 & 9 MHz
not checked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Aug 18 at 2325, VP signal squeezed between Cuba and
Cuba, ORTM as scheduled until 2400, checking after reported coup; will
it stay on all night? Not at 0116 August 19 check. Manuel Méndez,
Spain, reported at 0629: ``5995 open today at about its usual time
0550 with African songs, but at 0600, instead of interval signal,
identification in French and comments as usual, no comments, no news,
only non stop African songs. Best 73,s Manuel``. Day frequency to
check is 9635. And will this affect the CRI Bamako relays? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NICARAGUA [non?]. 8989-USB, Aug 18 at 2317, JBA sounds like Spanish
gospel huxter know-it-all intonation, i.e. the unlicensed?
fisher/preacher associated with shores of this country, only S2-S3,
equivalent to the noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Aug 19 at 0626, VON is S9/+10 but JBM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 18 at 2215, VOT English is VP here, but VG at
UTwente and Maine SDRs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9, Aug 18 at 2309, `Old Tyme Radio` on Area 61 via WBCQ
with Jean Shepherd but only S3-S5, so webcast required if at all. J.S.
episodes lead off each program this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15610, Aug 18 at 2312, WEWN English getting an HF sporadic E
boost to S9 instead of JBA, better even than 12050 WEWN Spanish.
Anyhow, confirmed on the air today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Aug 19 at 0152 on
R75 and longwire so no DFing, the first one may not be Cuba: 711, 891,
936(2), 1044, 1053, 1089, 1107, 1125, 1134, 1215(2), 1296, 1306.

At 0615 Aug 19 I am still getting only: 711, 846(surely Kiritimati
TP), 882, 936 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
