Hauser
** ALGERIA. 17600, Jan 15 at 1957 tune-in for some rare nap music on
SW, from Ifrikya FM --- just in time to hear it dump off air at
1957.6* amid music: no finesse. If has to get off without saying a
word, should at least fade down the music before cutting carrier
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, Jan 15 at 1609 & still 2058, pulse jamming
against nothing, as the incompetent Jamming Command keeps running
where R. Martí appears only in A-seasons; now blasting on 13820, no
jamming audible t/here. How many undernourished Cubans could be fed
for the lost cost of this nonsense?

Per Aoki & EiBi, no other station uses 13605 at any hour, prudent
avoidance. But HFCC shows one: TDF France at 17-18 only at 120
degrees, but in DRM, so maybe occasionally testing? A suitable
conflict, noise v noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1500 kHz, Jan 15 at 1607 UT, ad with 620 AC,
must be usual KPGM Pawhuska in 918 AC but coverage bleeding into
KS=620, as there is no KS on 1500. Also with SAH at first, likely KSTP
MN via residual daytime skywave. See also USA: KXEL 1540 log at same
time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1600 kHz, Jan 15 at 2002 UT, dead air at S9+20,
obviously my nearby KUSH, Cushing. 2005 comes to life with ID and
cheekily demanding ``keep listening``, into music. Obviously a
news-hole, ABC? is not being filled. I`m back almost an hour later, at
2059, ID with announcer`s name, and ``You are listening to KUSH, 1600
and 101.5, Oklahoma`s Americana station, the Cush`` and: DEAD AIR
again, but 2105 recheck, music has resumed. Did not listen for entire
5-minute break, but a trace of something else on E/W longwire:
probably usual nemesis, KRVA, 25 kW day power Vietnamese for The
Metroplex but not yet skywaving much. KUSH day power is 5 kW but gets
a lot less coverage per watt than same power would achieve at bottom
end of MF band. When will stations ever learn that automation requires
constant human oversight? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Jan 15 at 2300, token English from SNR, intro
feature to be about visiting a Madrid warehouse of costumes used in a
thousand TV shows and movies: another item sorely lacking any visual
element; but first the news: they do a good job of integrating
axualities in Spanish and summarising them in English, screams of war,
bits of music. If you require great detail, no doubt kvz will have
that in weekly reports. 2310 to Paris Costumes in Madrid. This topic
seems familiar but I did not listen much to it before (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960.000, Jan 15 at *2312 signal cuts on, but it`s
Chinese from XJRTV, EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom
genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems --- not English from VOT as
scheduled. From before 2300 I had UTwente running and squelched on
5958-USB so I would know immediately when something oncame; while I
was axually listening to simulSpain 9690. 2330: no Turkey! Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler. It`s a shame so many DXers, editors,
insist on endorsing E.T. as really CHINA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 293 MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0721, FBY, 25-watt NDB at Fairbury
NE, JBA vs still excessive local line noise on LW.

326 MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0722, MA, 400-watt NDB at MidlAnd TX, JBA vs
still excessive local line noise.

515 MCW kHz, Jan 15 at 0729, OS, 25-watt NDB at Ohio State, Columbus,
JBA under/mixing with near-local 25-watt PN Ponca City OK, which is
normally sole. BTW, Ohio State U. got domain OSU tied up first,
forcing Oklahoma State U. to the cumbersome okstate (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2225 monitoring: also confirmed
Sunday January 14 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9/+5
into UTwente with ACI from 1314 heavy Castilian.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 15 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into
Durango2 SDR, again overridden by ute noise blast spoiler first 14
seconds.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 15 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.9, S9+15 direct; outro music from preceding show overlapped WOR
opening. Next:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to SW
1400 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated. Thanks this
week to Joe Caberlin, Port Colborne, Ontario for some spare US$ to
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; preferably by MO or
check on a US bank

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to:
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9275, Jan 15 at 1955, WMLK is back on MLK Day with Yahweh
stuff, S9+10/20; still on at 2115, S9+20/30, sermon about glue and
guitars, citing Deuteronomy - of course! Tony Pavick, BC, already
heard it yesterday after some days/weeks? absence (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 1540, Jan 15 at 1605 UT, KXEL ID in passing as soon as I
tune in, then interview Vivek, mentions of Waterloo, because of IA`s
caucus day. Must be residual skywave possible at midwinter, i.e. 2h23m
after Enid LSR at 1342, now only 2 minutes earlier than latest of the
year. Also with 88/minute = 1.47 Hz SAH, perhaps one of two KS, as
there is no OK on 1540 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier chex, not full search,
January 15 at 0402, finds 684, 693, 774, 855, 882, 891, 999, 1044,
1107. Note: local noise QRM on this rx makes 531 uncheckable (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 4885, Jan 14 at 0450, R. Clube do Pará almost back to
normal? S9+10/20 in Portuguese talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 14 at 0451, R. Progreso is back on, unlike offness
last night - but modulation is breaking up, crackling while S9+20/30
carrier is steady. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Sunday Jan 14 at 1622, RHC weekly Esperanto S9+20,
good mod, something about a meeting in Brazilo; no signal on 15140,
nor any RHC found anywhere else on any band. Something`s always wrong
at RHC.

Hey! They have finally updated their frequency sked for current season
B23:
https://www.radiohc.cu/de-interes/frecuencias
but this page is about Spanish only. How about English? To get to
other langs one must click on the globe icon at upper right of
homepage:
https://www.radiohc.cu/en/de-interes/frecuencias
shows ONLY THESE: S Fsco 6100 05-07 - imaginary, I NEVER hear it;
Chicago 15140 20-21 - usually off, sporadic? and Washington 6000 01-07
- of course irregular and usually poorly modulated if at all.

The Programming Schedule link in dropdown under Interesting, even from
the English subsite leads not to any specific program names/times, but
to a complete transmission sked presented in Spanish, of all languages
which is obviously extremely outdated with loads of dead frequencies,
but not dated:
https://www.radiohc.cu/en/de-interes/programacion

How about Esperanto? Lots of interesting illustrated stories with
text:
https://www.radiohc.cu/eo
while its Frekvencoj page is for B23, showing ONLY these two, Solo
Domingo:
S Fsco 6100 0800-0830 = NOT heard; N/C/SAm 11760 1600-1630.

Why are only Commies bothering to SW broadcast Esperantoly? Not even
gospel huxters, who employ the most minority langs, only Cuba and
China, see:
https://www.addx.de/cgi-bin/hfp.cgi
but with wrong imaginary time for Havanna, 0700 as in A-seasons.

One might explore the other languages, linking only to French,
Portuguese, Arabic -- forget about Guarani, Quechua, long gone. But
does Creole still exist? Haitian, that is, tho targeted on Rio de
Janeiro, Chicago. Manythings always wrong at RHC! (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NETHERLANDS. 5954.96, re my log of presumed R. Veronica, JBA Jan 12
at 0735: ``Yes, it is Veronica in the WRTH Web App. And yes, exactly
on 5954.96 kHz. Mauno`` Ritola (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2225 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday January 14 at 0100 on WRMI 9955: I happen to have UTwente
running so check first there: dominated by S7/S9 pulse jamming over
there, a trace of WOR under. I also have Argentine SDR ready after
noshow of LRA36: WOR is fluttery S9/+15 and noisy but no jamming
audible down there.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 14 at 0416 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, VG
S9+23 into nearby SDR, about 6 minutes into so started a bit early c.
0410.

Also confirmed Sunday January 14 at 1130 on WRMI 9955, S9+20 when I
happen to awaken. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy
2220vUT Sunday SW Radio Gold, Germany 3975 [? heard Dec 31]
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; preferably by MO or

** U S A [and non]. 870, Jan 14 at 0750 UT, S9+20/25 of dead air, got
to be WWL silent, atop JBA others, occasional Cuban whooper (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1359.71, Jan 14 at 0259 UT, definite het upon 1360.00
stations dominated by sports coverage, no audio into E/W longwire.
Later lookup at mwoffsets finds this top entry!:
1360 1359,714 WCGL (Jacksonville, FL) 2022-12-06
It`s U1 5000/89 watts -- you think?
1359.71 carrier/het also detected on other rx at 0448.

Further research far back into my archives:
1360 1359.71 -290 Hz Cypress Gardens FL (WHNR)
(Medium Wave News 51/02 May/June 2005 via DXLD)

which probably derived from this 2004y log:

U S A. 1359.71, FLORIDA, WHNR, Winter Haven - 0914+ 31 October, US
soul and blues oldies, black female "I'm Debra McDowell and thank you
for listening... on your blues and oldies station..." Same off-
frequency observation here as Crawford logs. Fair signal at best
(Terry L Krueger, Clearwater, Florida, USA, 27.55.83 N, 82.46.08 W, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

WHNR still exists, U4 5000/2500 but nothing about it being so far
off-frequency in past bidecade; except now appears barely on wrong
side of .000 in mwoffsets:
1360 1360,0009 WHNR (Cypress Gardens, FL) 2022-02-18 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier check, Jan 14 at 0305, not
total 9/kHz scan but finds these when sought on the `545: 693, 711,
891 kHz.

Temp is down to 4F and falling. A bit later, Jan 14 at 0444, a full
9/kHz scan on the R75: 909, 1044, 1053-strongest, 1089 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Jan 13 at first check
1958, NO signal from LRA36 into best Argentine SDR, just S6 noise
level. Of the four, another hears it not either despite only S3 noise
level; and the other two are maxed out. Nothing several chex later,
finally at 2340 nothing into the four. Could it be that Argentina`s
wacko new far-right Pres. ``Chainsaw`` Milei is already getting rid of
public broadcasting? Anyone hearing RNASG earlier or later today? RAE
relays via WRMI may become even more unreliable if at all. See these
press via Bill Tilford, WOR iog:

https://newsrnd.com/news/2024-01-05-famous-artists-and-journalists-on-the-list-of-500-dismissed-from-radio-nacional.r1bFR8cHOp.html
Remember, last week LRA36 was mostly a relay of Radio Nacional, little
local
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 4885, Jan 13 at 0817, R. Clube do Pará, S9+10 but VP with
music, then perceptibly Portuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 6100, Jan 13 at 2313, Chinese music S9+20 which
has occupied the entire CRI Portuguese service for years, except for
maybe an announcement, same as on 13650 relay via Cuba but not
synchronized, also S9+20. HFCC shows 6100 as 500 kW direct from
Beijing site aimed NW to far Brasil. Following my unID report of 6100
on Dec 26, Terry Krueger, FL now reports:

``T/in 2245 JAN 12, 2024 my tonight fair with nonstop traditional CH
instrumentals. No transmitter break 2257 nor time sounders TOH. 2340
revisit: indeed parallel 13650 from Commie brothers Cuba.
Surprisingly, very slight delay at Cuba, with 6100 very good, 13650
almost excellent and good modulation. Saving the best remaining
transmitters for CRI? But why is CRI running so many transmissions
with no content? I suppose I should be glad, as the content is better
than the nonsense economy verbiage.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 11615, Jan 13 at 2321, S9/+10 of double Chinese with echo,
i.e. CNR1 jammers against the only 11615 scheduled, this hour only,
RFA via Tinian, of which I hear nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Jan 13 at 0745, JBA Spanish S5 vs local noise bursts,
therefore RHC way overtime and way weak. Something`s always wrong at
RHC. At 2322, Spanish at S9+20/30 with plenty modulation. Is
difference only due to propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 6000-6005-6010, Sat Jan 13 at 0808, S9+30 of DRM noise, per
HFCC, TDF Issoudun daily 0800-0900, 100 KW at 350 degrees to CIRAF 17,
18, 27, 80 = Iceland, rest of Scandinavia, Finland, France, UK,
uninhabited central N Atlantic between Newfoundland and Ireland. Is
this really on every day, with what content? drmrx.org says irregular,
French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Jan 13 at 2310, hard rock S9/+20.
Initially many unID reports here, then Thunder Chicken Radio per SSTV:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,124057.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.9, Jan 13 at 1643, JBA music at S5 = noise
level, no doubt Hikari FM pirate. Also Jan 13 at 2320, JBA S6/S7
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, UT Sat Jan 13 at 0759, I belatedly remember to
check KUCO for anomalous programming early Saturday morning, as first
noted a biweek ago; see my Dec 30 report. A few sex of ``ambient``
music before ToH ID, so maybe still `Beyond the Barrier` instead of
syndicated classical host Peter Van De Graaf. Then at 0800 UT starting
`Café Chill`! Another new show not on KUCO skedgrid in UT -6:
https://www.kucofm.com/program-grid/
nor on alfabetical list of programs:
https://www.kucofm.com/programming/

Here`s about Café Chill:
https://www.cafechill.org/

Awakened at 0935 UT by music blaring from the ENE paperboy car,
delivering the new ``Weekender`` merging the Sat & Sun editions,
Monday`s already deleted months ago; I quickcheck 90.1: music again
sounds ``ambient`` rather than classical.

BTW, KUCO reception has deteriorated. Under `dead` conditions it used
to make it to household radio with rod antenna; not any more. It
always has to compete with stronger 89.7 and 90.3 OK signals, and KHCC
R Kansas 90.1 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 9996 CW, Jan 13 at 0748, second pips at S4, doubtless RWM
Moskva/Taldom timesignal station; surprisingly MUF holding this high
thru winter night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Jan 13 at 2312, VOT not off the air,
S9+20/30 direct, already past the news with recipe for something
involving lots of copper. Recheck via UTwente at 2344 when measured:
music at S9+35/40; 2354 s/off only for the 1330 on 13635! something`s
always awry at Ankara; 2355 IS about twice until off uncovering
Chinese from XJPBS - or ``Xinjiang Radio Televiziye``, as Zacharias
Liangas says XJRTV is now IDing, at least in Kazakh on 7340 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 356 MCW kHz, Jan 13 at 0825 UT, ODX is JBA = 25 watt NDB at
Ord, Nebraska, occasionally heard. Not much else now vs HNL (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Jan 13 at 1641, PCO, HIFER beacon from Pine,
COlorado is JBA; getting to be regular. 2318 a bit better so I can
tell that there is a dash between each group of 3 PCO`s (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2225 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
January 13 at 1700 & 2030 on WRN N America webcast; also 2030 on WRMI
webcast only.

Also confirmed starting at 2032 Sat Jan 13 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated. Thanks this
week to Joe Caberlin, Port Colborne, Ontario for some spare US$ to
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; preferably by MO or
check on a US bank

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to:
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WBCQs check Jan 13 at 0055, pre-AAAWWW into NH SDR: 3265+
OFF, 5130.275, 6159.935, 7489.965, 9330.017v. 0100 on 7490-, first
AAAWWW of New Year, so not a repeat like last week. Or, did he stamp
this as the first day of 2024? That would have been local Monday
instead of Friday. They are in Deland of Fla where it`s now warm, 72
degrees. Angela is either dressed up for the radio, or half-naked: I`m
confused. Opening topic is antique automobile repairing, etc., yawn,
his major hobby/business; at least preferable to politix; but plenty
of ``Democrats are Communists`` delusions at later check (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, WTWW update from George McClintock calling Jan 13:
still can`t get 9475 to go by #2 transmitter, with programming ready to
start. Ex-Continental engineer coming back at end of Jan to get #1
transmitter going and maybe #3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 4939.986, Jan 13 at 0559, Estación 4940, S9+12 into
Miami SDR with music thru hourtop, by 0607 YL Spanish talk presumably
sermon. Recheck 0815 in music, S9+20 direct. Hearing it in the 06/08
UT bihour is normal and rarely bothered to log, but checking now
following this report: I`m rarely monitoring around 0515 but never
heard a ``s/off``. If so, they must come right back on shortly:

``From: billmcdavitt via groups.io
<billmcdavitt=protonmail.com@groups.io>
Sent: Friday, January 12, 2024 at 11:55:40 AM GMT+1
Subject: [bdxc-news] Estacion 4940 Venezuela

Estacion 4940 seems to be back on a regular daily schedule. Their
signals have been good here (Florida) lately. Not sure when they sign
on but they always abruptly shut down at 0515 UTC, typically in the
middle of a song. Station ID on the hour usually followed by the very
distinctive and long Venezuela National Anthem. Yesterday they played
a Willie Nelson song called "An Evening Prayer", of course in EE just
before station ID. Their programming seems to be very well put
together``

Also had QRM from 4942-USB: see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4942 USB, Jan 13 at 0602, listening to 4940 station via
Miami SDR, QRM from hi side: definitely in Russian, 2-way ``как ---
понимаете``, repeated a few times, word in between I could not copy.
Maybe asking if someone is hearing him (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9899.94, Jan 13 at 0750, JBA carrier. Nothing near this
time in Aoki or EiBi; HFCC has an ex?wooden registration for
Spaceline, Bulgaria at 0800-1300, 250 kW, 126 degrees to CIRAF 39 =

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 4885, Jan 12 at 0428, JBA carrier, presumably R. Clube do
Pará still trying to come back (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 12 at 0427 check, R. Progreso is missing. Something
else is wrong at RadioCuba. 15140 RHC of course was still missing Jan
11 at 2005 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440.000, Jan 12 at 2118, S9+20/30 of dead air into UTwente?
No, with volume at max, otherwise risking blastout, I can tell that R.
Cairo is JBM, suptorted, in English? Not usual 9439.995. Something`s
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS. 5954.96 approx., Jan 12 at 0735, JBA M&W talk, vs
storm noise. Nothing listed except, in Aoki & EiBi:
5955 0400-1830 HOL ICON BV.Sunlite Radio Dut Overslag 1-7
5955 0457-1457 HOL Radio Veronica NL HOL ov

IIRC, Sunlite was reported changed to Veronica programming recently.
WRTH 2024 page 556 shows Sunlite with 500 watts at 0500-1930, SW site
(ICN) Westdorpe. When stations are typically off-frequency, it would
be helpful if references show such rather than rounding off. Can
anyone confirm this offness, perhaps with even more precision? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950 USB, Jan 12 at 2322, soft rock, YL song,
S9/+10; 2325 announcement about ``voices in my head``, maybe ID but
missed. Many reports here say it`s Radio Free Whatever:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,124004.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 AM, Jan 12 at 2323, pirate music, S9/+10. Many
simulreports of unID here but as USB:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,124014.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 12 at 2310, token English from REE; interview
subject about feminism in sociology; sufficient signal direct into
reelout and portable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, Jan 12 at 2347, first tune-in via
UTwente finds S9+40/45 with song about İstanbul: I bet it`s VOT
despite odd frequency. 2352 multi-lingual ID filler reel, just in
time. 2354 canned s/off, the one with correct but incomplete English
schedule; 2355 IS once and off, uncovering XJPBS in Chinese, std
denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, Jan 12 at 2320, beacon PCO is JBA with QRM from
something slightly higher; maybe K6FRC. PCO from Pine, Colorado.
Anybeacon audible on this ISM band is of note (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15730, Jan 11 at 2010, VOA French inbooming from Grimesland,
much Africanish music sufficient for my pre-WOR nap, rapid announcer
interrupted in midshow for mandatory 2030* chopoff, why? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 7460, Jan 12 at 0421, algo in unclear language,
presumably VOA KNK service via BOTSWANA, back on correct frequency
instead of jump to 7480 last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 13750, Fri Jan 12 at 1637, S7/9+10 in language
mentions Washington. Standout signal, except domestix on 13820, 13845,
this is the SSOB, the only others weakies on 13830, 13865. Aoki says
VOA Swahili daily via KUWAIT. EiBi same except site STP! HFCC says SAO
in Swahili, 100 kW at 114 degrees: that would be toward Tanzania,
rather than Kenya & Uganda due east, in any event, far from thisaway
unless 294 off the back. But HFCC also shows a conflicting
registration on 13750, 1630-1700 M-F, ADM, not AGM, English, 250 kW,
255 degrees from DHA UAE site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO MONITORING: `` Update: WOR via Shortwave
Radio from Winsen / Aller in Germany: just checked the SWR website. It
seems WOR is put out at 30 minutes past the top of the hour according

Hauser
WARNING: Scam email from "Glenn Dx"

A word of warning to all – I just received an email purportedly from
"Glenn Dx," an obvious attempt to play off the reputation of Glenn
Hauser and trick us into opening it and clicking on the attachments.
But it's actually from some strange and unrecognizable email address.
So if you see it, delete it (Arthur Delibert, Jan 11, Hard-Core-DX
mailing list via WORLD OF RADIO 2225)

** ALGERIA [and non]. Re beat on 891 kHz, () 4th digit measurements
mean approx.? `` Yes, that's what I meant. I think both stations drift
just a bit, so they may have had a different separation on the day you
tuned to. 73, Mauno`` Ritola (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. ``RHC 6000 missing --- Hello Glenn, During my
bandscan tonight I noticed at 0200 and re-check at 0235 UT that Radio
Havana Cuba is completely off air on 6000. The Voice of Turkey is
coming into Ohio with a SINPO of 45444 on the Eton E1XM with the
Wellbrook 1530 and bhi DSP Desktop speaker. They have a decent signal
with Turkish music. Regards, Chris`` Campbell, Columbus, 0242 UT Jan
11.

RHC signs on at 0243 on 6000 --- As I sent the last email their
carrier came up with audio for about 20 seconds and then cut off
again. A poorly modulated Ed Newman's voice was heard briefly. Chris``
at 0246 UT Jan 11 (via Glenn Hauser, WOR) See TURKEY [and non] 6000
for my monitoring about this

** TURKEY [and non]. 6000.004, Jan 11 at 0259, TRT IS S9+10 into
UTwente, 0300 timesignal and Turkish music rather than news. No
CubaRM, q.v. as RHC has been cutting on and off. At 0310 music stops
but still a strong deadair carrier, presumed TRT, but could be RHC. By
0324 into Missouri SDR, RHC is suptorted and JBM at S9+10/30. At 0327
rechecking UTwente, now 6000 seems like RHC. So not really sure when
TRT turned off. VOT Turkish to Central Asia scheduled 0100-0300 so
anything past then was an overrun. Under `normal` conditions, RHC has
no problem overriding it inside N America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2224 monitoring: [WOR] WOR on 9395:
``Good reception today here in BC, but transmission break at 0057
mid-sentence. Ugh. Tony Pavick`` UT Wednesday January 10.
