Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Oct 29 from 1440 tune-in via
Argentine remote, NO signal from LRA36. SDR connexion keeps stalling,
have to reload. Listening to noise for over an hour pays off,
however:

15475.83 LSB!, Oct 29 at 1548 I notice some offside SSB talk QRM while
still tuned to 15475.98 USB, eventually resolved by LSB tuning to this
frequency, Spanish talk about Marambio base, so this is certainly
LRA36 on a new frequency and maybe new/different transmitter! YL host
is chatting with OM guest. I can never get the audio to sound just
right, stepping up and down at 10 Hz intervals; even more so during
music breaks. Initially there was a reduced carrier which should have
made it easier to pinpoint, but then no carrier, pure LSB, S6/S7. 1557
``aquí en Base Esperanza``; 1600 music; 1604.5 standard canned ID for
LRA36 with staff names, ``Nacional, nos une``, a defacto sign-off, and
music for some time but did not notice exactly when it went off, well
before 1624 check; I let it run until 1637, but nothing further (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Oct 29 at 0547, only RHC on air now, English S9+20/30
with good mod except for some hum, no others of The Cuban Five on 5/6
MHz bands. Usually 6000 is off before the others. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290, Sat Oct 29 at 1801, IRRS SW via BULGARIA, no
signal on X2 = 14580; good into UTwente with Feature Story News, 1805
India music bit, then song in English; 1810 start `Country Jamboree`
filler until 1830 cut to gospel music and 1833 gospel huxter. Instead
of the first half of WOR which ran last Saturday at 1814-1830.

Also, Ron Norton of IRRS notifies us: ``the second program in memory
of Dario Monferini, with excepts of the Play DX news program in
English and Italian, as well as fragments of our earlier tests
broadcast from 1988-89, including short segments from Radio Stella
International (Scotland), World Music Radio, Jonathan Marks from Media
Network (Radio Nederland), and more, will be repeated at the following
times [one hour each]:

- On Saturday, Oct. 29, 2022 (A22 season):
22:00 UTC (19:00) CET on 1323 kHz MW to Europe (+ streaming)

- On Sunday, Oct. 30, 2022 (B22 season):
12:00 UTC (13:00 CET) on 9510 kHz SW to Europe (+ streaming)
17:00 UTC (18:00 CET) on 7290 kHz SW to Europe (+ streaming)
20:00 UTC (21:00 CET) on 1323 kHz MW to Europe (+ streaming)

with repeats and also in the coming week at various times via
streaming at https://nexus.org/mp3 .`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 29 at 0551, no signal from VON; but I am
checking too early: ``Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, Log in Lugo, NW of
Spain, Tecsun PL-880, cable antenna, 8 meters, NIGERIA, 7254.9, Voice
of Nigeria, Abuja Lugbe, *0555-0610, 29-10, open with songs, at 0557
interval signal, at 0601 Vernacular, comments. Very strong carrier,
very weak audio. It seems to have transmitter problems. 15321``

7255-, Oct 29 at 1756, no VON signal into Canary SDR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5000, Oct 29 at 0548, sweep tones apparently from WWV itself
during this minute rather than QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2162 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday October 29 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20 into Virginia SDR,
S9+20/30 into Missouri SDR, S8/9+10 into KFS CA on SE antenna, VG
S9+20/30 direct. What about // 15770 instead of 7730? Nothing but
traces at VA, MO, direct; S9+10/25 into KFS.

Also confirmed UT Saturday October 29 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela,
5130 minus 16 Hz = 5129.984, S9/+5 into Maryland SDR.

** U S A. 7780, Oct 29 at 0552, WRMI-13 is finally back on air, as
forecast by end of this week, the last one (almost) to be restored
following Hurricane Ian; rock music at S9/+10 with slight distortion.
I had not yet seen this, which went on FB circa 23 UT Oct 28:

``WRMI Radio Miami International 17h · Dear WRMI Listeners: We just
repaired 7780 kHz today, and it will come on the air at 0000 UTC
tonight (UTC Oct 29). We now have all of our regular frequencies back
on the air except for 7730 kHz. We did put 7730 back on the air on
October 10 at low power, but we have been unable to bring it up on
high power using the current antenna. However, we have transferred all
of the programming which was previously on 7730 kHz to 15770 kHz on
our European beam. We will keep working on 7730, and we may be able to
return that frequency to the air within the next couple of weeks.

We lost three antennas during Hurricane Ian on September 28 – one to
Europe and the Middle East, one to Africa and one to Central America
and Oceania. We have placed one of those frequencies (7780 kHz) on a
different antenna to the same target areas. We replaced 21525 kHz with
17790 kHz to a different target area. And, as mentioned above, we are
still working on 7730 kHz. We are consulting with engineers to see how
the three damaged antennas might be repaired or replaced in the
future.

We want to thank everyone who has contributed to our hurricane repair
funds on PayPal and GoFundMe. Your contributions have made it possible
for us to do all of this work in just 30 days, and they will make it
possible for us to continue with permanent repairs. Thank you all very
much!``

The gridspan for 7780 at 222 degrees for WNAm - otherwise same azimuth
designated for CAm on silent 5985 - is 0000-1100 only with quite a
mixture, besides disposable TOMBS and SMTV, variety at: 00-01, 03-04,
05-06, 08-09; presumably including WOR UT Fri 0330, Sun & Mon 0030
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5129.984, UT Sat Oct 29 at 0230-0259, WBCQ Radio Angela with
weekly `Greek Music Refuge`. UB has Zach Liangas on at first to
briefly introduce the music from a name I don`t catch, as he has
chosen it. Then solid segués for rest of show, enjoyed but noisier
here than would have been on VOG 9420. At end UB offered to ID pieces
to email requestors (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 29 at 0551, JBA signal from R. Vanuatu (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic split JBA MW carrier search, Oct 29 at
0621: 711-Morocco, 774-Spain, 846-TP Kiritimati, 855-2-Spain,
882-Canary or Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 6060, Oct 28 at 0605, JBA carrier: hard to believe it`s RHC,
but nothing else listed at this hour, except in Aoki: SRDA Curitiba,
Brasil. Is it active? Not in EiBi or latest DSWCI DBS as of last
April. Not in WRTH 2022, 2021, either. Same question I raised on July
9, 2021.

6165, Oct 28 at 0605, only RHC left, in English, S9+10/20 but
undermodulated. No Cuba or other broadcasters above 5000 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 28 at 0607, VON is on at S9/+10 but JBM. At
1742, 1826, no signal into Canary SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Friday October 28 at 2200, token English from REE,
sufficient on NAm frequency, S9+20/30 into Virginia SDR. Feature after
news will be part 2 of interview about Salem witchcraft, plus a
Lebanon/Israel agreement, and another spooky movie review. 2206
witchcraft starts but doesn`t really interest me. 2225 the Leb/Isr is
about maritime border agreement for offshore gas exploration, brokered
by US, i.e. each signed with US, not having to deal directly with each
other. 2227.5 final #10 Hallowe`en movie review, did not get Spanish
title, as signal is fading down. 2316 recheck, nothin` but noise on
17855, but SAm`s 11940 is still S9+5/10 into VA; 15520 & 11670 would
have closed after 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, W OR)

** TURKEY. From HFCC B22, VOT TRT in English, as expected changes, 1
real UT hour later from Oct 30:
1330 12035 Eu, but NAm beyond
1730 9660 C&SAs
1930 6050 Eu
2130 9610 SEAs, Pac
2300 5960 NAm
0400 6125 NAm, 7285 ME
Not including the inevitable errors, like 5960 on past 0000 in German
(Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 2162)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Oct 28 at 2200 no signal yet into UTwente from
VOT English; must have come on way late but going S9+25/45 at 2230
after I retune from Spain --- but it`s not English, rather Turkish.
2235 machine gun fire, declamations, like a military coup?? Also has
some music background, 2238 martial songs; 2240 more talk and machine
gun fire. At 2243 I notify the WOR iog to tune this in quick! But no
replies. Then mostly songs, no English, cut off at 2255.5 which would
be nominal for end of broadcast. Probably the sloppyrators brought up
the wrong program feed, like a dramatic movie soundtrack. Something`s
very erroneous at Emirler and/or awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 6m DX MAP commonly shows Es MUFs to 70+ MHz, hardly ever
above 88; but that`s plenty for 28 MHz hambeacons to show. I only have
time to copy a few, among others also too close to each other less
than 1 kHz apart, Oct 28 at 2020-2027 UT, first with listings from
WI5V Beacon website, further ID and info from QRZ.com ---

28230.7?, Oct 28 at 2026, E E E E E E E E NG7I/B + gridsquare?

``QSL: Direct QSL Please. Will also QSL for the beacon`` nothing more

I estimated above on 28230.7, and the next one *not* on exactly same
frequency as in WI5V, but maybe 0.2 kHz lower:

28230.5, Oct 28 at 2023, VVV VVV VVV QRA W7PFR/B CR## -- gives call

batteries at W7PFR (Pack Forest Repeater)``

28216.8, Oct 28 at 2026, VVV DE N6SPP/B CO## --- I copied as K6SPP/B

``My 10 Meter Propogation Beacon at Rose Lake transmits on 28.2165 MHz
at 5 watts. It's pretty much always on with a couple of deep cycle
batteries for power. The transmitter is an old Realistic HTX-100. The
antenna is an A-99 vertical. The keyer is an ID-O-Matic by N0XAS. The
receiver in the HTX-100 smoked, literally, years ago but the
transmitter just keeps on going. I have a small fan in back of the
radio to keep things a little cool. For me part of the fun of having
the beacon is playing with antennas. So far it's had a loop, dipole,
and verticals 8', 17', 31' and 120' long.``
This time my log & listed frequency match. More info location photos:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2162 monitoring: not confirmed UT
Fri Oct 28 at 0330 on 7780 still not restored, nor 9455.

Confirmed Friday October 28 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, VP S7/S9 direct, and
off after 1500.

Also confirmed Friday October 28 from 1815.3 on IRRS via Bulgaria 7290
and AM Italia 1323. Into UTwente, S9+5, nothing audible on X2 = 14580.
Into nearby Noale SDR, 1323 with heavy CCI from Romania`s minority
German service: e.g. 1823 WOR is atop, 1828 about equal, 1831 WOR
abottom, 1843 WOR JBA way under.

Monitoring same earlier and later: 1323 from 1756 tune-in classical
music from Rom way atop; nothing ever on 918 or 207 kHz. 1801 IRRS
``sign-on`` by when 7290 is also on so I mainly listen there: Feature
Story News & Spotlite; 1806 song fill; 1812 open `Counterspin` with
Jennine Jaxon [sps?], one current news item being explosions on
pipeline off Poland: that`s really olds, happened on Sept 26. 1815
chop off for IRRS ID and then WOR.

After: 1844 music and IRRS ID, 1845 more music; 1847 open `Shortwave
Report` with Dan Roberts in CA; same old stations recorded this week:
DW, F24, RHC, NHKWR. DW is about Truss resigning, which of course is
impossible on SW in English. 1855, France 24 of course does not even
pretend to be a SW station as he continues pulling off webcasts, *not*
off SW. He does admit to webcast alternatives. Cannot provide any SW
frequencies for first two, because there aren`t any. 1857* Bulgaria
cuts 7290 off as usual before programend. Try to listen to rest on
1323 but buried by music from Romania, until 1900 prolonged tone and
off; audiblizing pretending ``IRRS SW signing-off`` and Verdi theme,
as less than half of so-called SW Report has been aired at all; 1903
FSN again.

Also confirmed Friday October 28 at 2038 the 2030 on AM Italia, 1323,
S9+10/17 well over music understation and SAH presumed Smooth Radio.

** U S A. 9330+, Oct 28 at 1514, WBCQ/WLCR is off again. At 1420 Oct
28: ``Hi Glenn, Yes, we are continuing to do daytime maintenance work
on our 8 million dollar Superstation antenna, The Ampegon model RCA
4-4. The work will finish by the end of November. This will enable us
to concentrate a full 20 million watts ERP of free speech shortwave
radio power, in any desired direction. Elon is freeing Twitter: WBCQ
will continue to keep freeing the shortwaves. Thanks, Allan & Angela
Weiner, Owners, WBCQ Radio``

Does that mean it has not been able to rotate as registered? Have
noted considerably weakened signals when e.g. in Portuguese (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490 webcast, UT Sat Oct 29 from 0000, WBCQ `AAAWWW`
monitoring; starts right off with anti-government talk. Must vote out
all Democrats. Gotta keep fossil fuels, very slowly wean off them.
Laments cost of diesel fuel et al. to keep warm in Maine winters.

I also check Maryland remote how the SW frequencies are going: 5130
minus 9 Hz; 6160 minus 63 Hz; 7490 minus 66 Hz; 3265 off; 9330 WLCR
minus 25 Hz. All these are varying 1 or 2 Hz up and down.

0030 refers to gh and sending me the above message. Accuses me of
saying stuff without verification, but still loves me. Tower work has
been going on for 2.5 months; antenna was not 100% complete so they
are working on final touches. Ultimately will be able to beam ERP of
20 megawatts anywhere with 500 kW transmitter. 0041 accuses Moonbats
of ``killing our children``, by uncertainty about gender. 0044 says
trimulcasting on 7, 6 and 5, on 28 of Oct YOOLF 2022. 0047 denounces
NPR = ``National Socialist Public Radio``. Radio World story from Sept
about decline of public radio, ``constagflation`. Usual prayerful
wrapup ending late at 0101, JIP Hal Turner, too late to tell whether
he still claim to be on 540 KYAH Utah, which was 13 watts at night;
did that allude to Yahweh? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12050, Oct 28 at 1515, S9/+10 of dead air from WEWN. This
keeps happening; is no one paying attention at Irondale or Vandiver?
The ghost of M. Angelica might as well QRT the remnant Spanish service
as already done to English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 28 at 0607, JBA carrier from RV (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search of splits, Oct 28
from 0617; at this late hour most likely Spain, u.o.s.: 585, 684, 711
Morocco, 774, 837-2 or Canary, 846 TP Kiritimati, 855-2, 1044, 1098,
1107-3, 1215 or UK, 1305-2, 1413-2, 1521 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1210 kHz, Oct 28 at 0627 past 0630+ UT, classical music
mixing with talkers probably KGYN & WPHT. Can`t find any 1210 listed
with classical: can`t imagine a commercial station in US or Canada,
nor can NRC AM Log. IRCA Mexican log shows max 3 stations, not. Cuba?
Two stations in WRTH not on CMBF network. Central America? Guatemala
has a religious one. Nothing else in CAm, Caribbean or S America
with an overtly cultural or classical name, but exact formats
difficult to divine. Ideas? Possibly something completely different
defaulting to such fill during loss of network signal; or an equipment
test. This makes a SAH of 164/minute against some other = 2.7 Hz.
MWOffsets shows KUBR San Juan TX in the RGV on 1210.0027! But it`s
Spanish Christian. No program sked found on website (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 5850, Oct 28 at 0134, WRMI with `SOS WRMI` fundraiser
instead of Viva Miami, voiced by someone other than Jeff, with rock
music. What if you are not a rock fan? 0138 `Lion Sleeps Tonight`.
0140 ad for an Icom SDR. 0144.6 cut to RFPI in language? Not Slavic
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7260, Oct 27 at 0618, R. Vanuatu is JBA,
squeezed between 7255- Nigeria and 7265 VOA French São Tomé -- the
latter is M-F only until 0630, and negligible modulation from the
former helps (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 27 at 0624:
567-? off-frequency minus, maybe birdie: Spain listed only 1.6 Hz low.
Other likely sources: 621 Canary, 684 Spain, 711 Morocco, 1044 Spain;
1521 - 5 kW Spain? Even with 2000 kW would not expect Sa`udi at this
late hour; nor 500 kW East Turkistan at this midday hour (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7730 USB, Oct 27 at 0619, JBA 2-way? in language not
Spanish more like French intonation, in absence of WRMI which is
allegedly active on 7730 AM with low power. Few pauses and only one?
side heard so may be 1-way? Or could this really be a trace of WRMI?

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Oct 26 at 1433-1543, never any signal
this Wednesday from LRA36 into Argentine SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARGENTINA [non]. See USA: WRMI: 7570

** CANADA. 300 MCW kHz, Oct 26 at 0626 UT, dash and YIV, 500 watt NDB
at Island Lake, Manitoba. Last logged last year, Dec 26 and 8. It`s in
NE Manitoba, beyond coverage of my Rand McNally road atlas. Reader`s
Digest Great World Atlas has it: near the Ontario border at the
southern end of the NE/SW boundary. Viz.:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_Lake,_Manitoba
YIV is the only N American on 300 per dxinfocentre.com
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6060, Oct 26 at 0619, RHC English, S9/+10 and
undermodulated, nowhere else on 6 or 5 MHz; how many kW? Not
unusually, inferior to *1 kW* CFRX neighbor on 6070, which is S9/+10
and louder, but also with a SAH, presumably Channel 292, Germany
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 5985, Oct 26 at 0400, no signal from WRMI-2. NHK in
Spanish was scheduled here and nowhen else, even direct. I believe
that language was totally canceled by NHK some months ago. HFCC B22
shows no Spa anywhen, anywhence:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B22&broadc=NHK
Nor for A22, 5985 last appearing for B21.

WRMI transmission skedgrid shows nothing 24h on 5985; yet the program
schedule below still shows a ``System K`` for nothing but this. Aoki &
EiBi still show some other programming on 5985 WRMI. 5985 was
nullified long before Hurricane Ian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 26 at 0615, no signal from VON direct. No
signal at 1803, 1850 into Canary remote (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Oct 26 at 0624 UT, SW, ND beacon at
StillWater, now confirmed on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640 KZLS // 1390 KCRC Enids, Oct 26 at 0640/0642 UT,
both are in dead air instead of sports talk (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Oct 26 at 2200, token English from REE on Wed, first
checked direct: NAm frequency is back on, but poor not propagating so
well toward the end of A-season, also undermodulated? 15520 VP, 11940
NO signal so must be off since 11670 is audible but poor. By 2207 I`m
checking Maryland remote: YL interview about something: 17855 S2/S3,
15520 JBA, 11940 OFF, 11670 despite normally the worst here, for
Africa, is poor S3/S4 making it the best, but also with squeal.
Something`s not right at Noblejas.

From Oct 30 the Bquencies are likely to be 9690 NAm, 12030 ME, 11940
SAm, altho a number of new alternatives have been registered; but for
Africa it`s either 17755 or 21620, neither of which will be any good
over here by 2300; as everything including English will be one real UT
hour latened (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 26 at 2200, VOT English is JBA direct, but by
2213 into UTwente it`s S9+40/45, with scratchy over/modulation, as
something`s always erroneous at Emirler. 2216 concluding `Review of
the Tuerkiyeish Press`. Music bit and 2219, `Weekly Commentary`, by
Thomas Alford? who has written for Spectator, SCMP et al., but read by
the heavily accented YL, titled ``Britain's Political Peril Is
Unlikely to End with Sunak``. Not sure of his name, I search on that
exact title and leads directly to full text at TRT World:

https://www.trtworld.com/opinion/britain-s-political-peril-is-unlikely-to-end-with-sunak-61921
where I notice that the ESL reader simply skips over words she does
not recognize or know how to pronounce, while mispronouncing others.
His name is Thomas O. Falk. At the bottom, individuals are invited to
email their own opinion pieces to TRT. Maybe he did exactly that, so
it`s original with TRT. Otherwise the subject has no relevance to
Turkey. 2230, next show is ``Cooking Files``?? No, I still can`t
comprehend the title; it`s not about recipes, but space exploration
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

7780 kHz. We will strive to get that one back on the air within the
next few days if all goes well. Best regards from Okeechobee. Jeff
White, General Manager, WRMI Radio Miami International``

7570, Oct 26 at 2315, indeed on, S9/+10 into Maryland with RAE in
French, to be followed by weekly English at 2330-2400. Skedgrid shows

other stuff Sat/Sun, daily 00-11 TOMBS, 11-14 SMTV, 14-16 Sat only
