Hauser


A couple of times in sequence in this item obviously? started with 15- instead of 14-

Here`s the whole thing again, corrected:



** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Thursday Oct 20 at *1430 LRA36 cuts on
during song exactly as scheduled for special station anniversary
broadcast; good into Argentine remote. 1433 lyric during song sounds
like ``voy a buscar una señal``, or am I imagining? 1434.5 cut to
standard sign-on procedure; 1436 theme song; 1440 recitation this time
mentioning 43rd anniversary, ``una historia con futuro``; 1441.5
music; 1446 ID ``su cía``, and into live chat among YLs, even more
excited than usual, for the 27th program of the season; 1448 mention
Adrián Korol, head of RAE; 1453 geo coords of base; clima: +1 C, winds
of 32 or 55 kph? sunset around 20 local; 1456.5 phone and other
contact info; recorded voices with greetings, seem to be mostly
officials rather than listeners, but first one never identified; 1502
frequencies as 15476 and ``97.6`` -- even she can mix up the digits
instead of 96.7. 1503 we hear Korol; 1507 song; 1510 historia: from
1978 first radio was on met frequencies; Sept 1979 an icebreaker from
Bs. As. brought broadcast equipment to base; antenna up and first on
air Oct. 20; ID recording mentioning original frequency 6030; then a
long phone conversation with Juan Carlos ---, the first announcer as
he fondly recollects; still going enthusiastically at 1525 until 1530,
then the first song they played in 1979, a milonga; 1535 more chat,
but 1537* cut off amid talk and never to return, altho planned to run
until 1630. This is how it often happens even on ordinary days. Wonder
if this will repeat Saturday or of Wednesday`s (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5025 & 5040, Oct 20 at 0615, Rebelde and RHC are off; on 6
MHz band: only RHC English 6060 undermodulated, and 6165 just barely
modulated. Something`s alwys wrong at RadioCuba/RHC. The Other Side:

``Policy --- Is Cuba a failed state or not? DIARIO DE CUBA spoke to
three experts on the categorization that the regime does not want to
acknowledge, as it would mean accepting that a historical process has
failed. --- José Luis Reyes, La Habana 17 Oct 2022 - 16:26 CEST
Cubans in line in Havana. DIARIO DE CUBA [caption]

In the wake of the disaster wrought by Hurricane Ian in western Cuba,
the first secretary of the Communist Party in Havana, Luis Antonio
Torres Iríbar, gave a speech in which he sought to refute the growing
perception on social media and outside the country that the regime on
the island is a "failed state."``...

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846, Oct 20 at 0634, no signal from R.
Kiribati, but this is Thursday. It may be erratic; Bruce Portzer noted
from his Grayland WA DXpedition circa Oct 12 mainly logging Kiribati
on 1440, ``I was surprised to discover that the other Kiribati
station, Kiritimati 846, was carrying separate programming and signed
off at 0730z. Bruce in Seattle``.

While 846 was inaudible here, Oct 20 at 0635+, I did have JBA TA
carriers on 855, 882, 774, 711, 612, presumably, Spain, Canary,
Morocco (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 20 at 0618, no signal from VON. I wonder if the
flooding around Abuja affects this. SW sites, of course, should be
built on high ground. Also no signal into Canary SDR at 1825 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: confirmed UT

NEW WORLD OF RADIO TIME effective immediately, tnx to Jeff White: UT

** U S A. 5010, Oct 20 at 0615, this WRMI is off, rather than
extended. So are all other 5 & 7 MHz channels: 5800, 5850, 5950, 7570,
7730, 7780. At 0620, 9455 is splattering again down to 9420. But the

``5850 kHz back on the air --- The repairs on 5850 kHz have been
finished, and we tested it on the air at 1445 UTC today, October 20.
It's off at the moment, but it will come on at its normal sign-on time
of 2200 UTC this evening. We know that a lot of listeners in central
and western North America will be happy to hear this.

We will continue to work on 7570 and 7780 kHz in the coming days as we
make more repairs to those transmission lines that were damaged by
Hurricane Ian. Thank you again for all of your messages of support.

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wed Oct 19, tune-in via Argentine
remote at 1500 when LRA36 is already on with music prélude; 1503 usual
sign-on routine; 1503 themesong; 1507 recitation and song; 1512 ID
with ``nos une``, and finally live YLs, with program #26 of the
Esperanza Audaz season; staff names; it`s ``muy ventoso`` on this 19th
of October; temp minus 1 C, with a low of -10, snow, winds 93? kph,
partly cloudy; 1517 phone numbers and all other contact info; 1518
song; 1520 ID; 1521 This Week in History starting with Oct 17.
*Tomorrow* will be special program for the anniversary of LRA36, no
time heard but presumably also circa 15 UT Thu Oct 20. 1524 song; 1527
ID ``Radio Arcángel San Gabriel`` omitting ``Nacional``, ending with
``su compañía``. Then about Brown Base, from 1949/50, now named for
Almirante Brown, changed name in 1990. Seldom says anything about that
base, but see Wikipedia:

``Brown Station (Spanish: Estación Científica Almirante Brown, or more
often Base Brown or Estación Brown) is an Argentine Antarctic base and
scientific research station named after Admiral William Brown, the
father of the Argentine Navy. It is located on Sanavirón Peninsula
along Paradise Harbor, Danco Coast, in Graham Land, Antarctic
Peninsula. As of 2014 Brown is one of 13 research bases in Antarctica
operated by Argentina.[2] From 1951 to 1984 it served as a permanent
base; since then it is open during the summer season only.[3]``

More chat I don`t follow much past 1540 with music background, 1545 ID
with frequencies, ``Nacional, la Radio Pública``. 1555 again plug
birthday broadcast mañana; 1600 song; 1603 ID with staff again,
``Nacional, nos une``. 1605.5 dead air, off? Not quite, 1606 a bit
more music, then gone, no more heard past 1641. Was good signal,
modulation peaking S9.

PS: Here are details on the B-day special via the AER ForoDX list:
``Mañana Especial de LRA36 RADIO NACIONAL ARCÁNGEL SAN GABRIEL por su
43 aniversario de 1430 a 1630 UTC 15476 USB. Fonte: Adrián Korol
(Diretor da Rádio Nacional da Argentina e RAE Argentina ao Mundo) vía
Antonio Avelino, del DXCSF -- Pedro Sedano, Madrid, España``

And Gary Pence, TX, who would rather DX it via N American remotes than
hear it clearly via S America, reports: ``It`s on, 1454z in song. When
listening to LU4AA SDR, has a noise floor of -104 dbm and their signal
was in the beginning S7, S8 or -92 to -82 dbm. When using the KFS SE
SDR Array at Half Moon Bay, CA, has a higher noise floor of S5 or
-97,-98 dbm and LRA36 was barely audible but signal never built up. I
tried the quieter omni antenna at KFS, which was -104 dbm but it
doesn't have the gain of the SE Array. So for right now LRA36 remains
fairly elusive to the USA KIWISDRs, but we will keep trying.
73, Gary`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, 5040, 6000, Oct 19 at 0417, all these Rebelde/RHC
frequencies are off. 6060 & 6165 English on. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 11560-11580, Oct 19 at 0406, sounds like DRM
noise but too wideband; amid at 11570 a weak carrier. EiBi explains:

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Oct 19 at 0613, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati; only other 9/kHz splits: 855 and 1116, both likely Spain
synchros tho 1116 max power only 5 kW; 855, 50 kW. Note: there is a
lot more 10/kHz splash above 1200, so harder to detect any splits.

But Gary Pence reports; maybe was intermittent: ``846 khz Kiritimati
off No jba in Oahu. I almost forgot but I checked 846 at sunset and
around 0630z from Oahu SDR and I believe they were off last night.
Gary`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9700, Wed Oct 19 at 0632, RNZP starting `Digital
Planet` with some interesting topix, qualifying as a Media program; as
usual, 9700 this hour is the SSOB, S9+20. Guess what: it`s really a
BBC programmme, and not even mentioned on the RNZ Pacific sked, only
as a RNZ National relay this hour:
https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/nights

``7:06 PM. Nights with Karyn Hay --- RNZ's weeknight programme of
entertainment and information; 10:00 PM. News at Ten``
but including, at least this week:
``7:30 [sic] Digital Planet --- It's estimated that 5.3 billion mobile
phones will become waste this year. Despite being packed with precious
metals like gold, silver and palladium and other recyclable parts most
will not be disposed of properly.

This mountain of e-waste (that if piled on top of each other would
reach 120 times higher than the International Space Station) is only
part of e-waste problem with other small consumer electronics such as
remotes, headphones and clocks.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA [non]. 9955, Tue Oct 18 at 2228, tuning in WRMI early via
Maryland remote for WOR at 2230, tail end of `Antena DX` in Spanish,
or rather Portunhol, with DX report voiced by someone from DX Clube
Sem Fronteiras, with Portuguese hours of WLCR/WBCQ 9330, outdated?
Antena DX is produced monthly but allegedly aired weekly. This is
still the Sept edition as found later on their website, no October
yet. http://programasdx.com/antenadx.htm

Víctor Gutiérrez produces it:

HORARIOS Y FRECUENCIAS
Lunes 7.780 KHz 00:00 UTC (domingo en América)
Lunes 5.985 KHz 04:30 UTC (domingo en América)
Martes 9.955 KHz 22:00 UTC

Of course, 7780 has been off since Ian; 5985 was dropped months before
that. Another version shows 9455 at that time. Aoki shows some other
times: 0030 Day 4 = Wed, on 7490 = WBCQ, but not on WBCQ`s own sked at
any time; Wed 1300 on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed Oct 19 at 2200, token English to NAm from REE is
VP, unusable direct on this, let alone the other three frequencies,
15520, 11940, 11670. I`m not on computer to try for it via Maryland
remote, the usual workaround. B22 QSY to 9690 at 2300 M/W/F cannot
come soon enough (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.002, Oct 19 at *2158, JBA carrier cuts on as at first
I am monitoring only on the DX-398 direct with shortwire clipon, so
presumed VOT trying to start English, but useless to deep North
America. I detect it only with BFO slightly offtuned LSB, avoiding the
RTTY on USB. By 2247 I check it via UTwente which provides the typical
+2 Hz offset, but even there it`s so weak it could have been
underChina instead. Reads S7/S9 max but hardly readable as may also be
undermodulated. At 2248 I can tell it is really VOT, YL in English.
Occasionally surges to brief readability, signal and/or modulation.
2253 sign-off and into IS; 2258 German ID, 2300 timesignal, and still
on air but unreadable at 2323, not a good prop day for such a bonus,
even unto Europe. Seems to cut off at 2327*. We expect B22 to make
usual switch to 5960 and both one real UT hour later; which can`t come
soon enough. It would then again be subject to collision with The
Mighty KBC should extra German surpass 0000 on a UT Sunday (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: ``From: Richard

** U S A. 5010, 5800, 5850, 5950, 7570, 7730, 7780, Oct 19 at 0416 all
these WRMI frequencies are OFF, including some that had been restored
post-Ian, leaving nothing but the 9s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17790, October 19 circa 1830, WRMI on NF ex-21525 with
Panam`s ``Radio Africa`` service of gospel huxters in English, S9+10,
much better than 13m usually was but could still be affected by
sporadic E. Remains to be heard what be `normal` for this to here. It
is almost at right angle from correct Africa ex-azimuth of 81, i.e.
160 degrees really for S America, considerably missing Africa, but
maybe some signal get in there. However at 1939 recheck it`s off; 2046
recheck, back on. Sked is 15-21 UT; a stopgap measure until/unless the
Af antenna can be repaired.

Latest update on FB circa 22 UT Oct 19:
``WRMI Radio Miami International 1h · Here's the hurricane restoration
report for today (October 19) from WRMI. Our crew was completing work
on the transmission lines for 5850 kHz, when suddenly the transmission
fluid sprung a leak on one of our trucks, and it spilled onto the
catalytic converter causing the truck to catch on fire. Fortunately
our engineers were able to put out the fire quickly, so we hope there
is not much damage.

We used another truck to finish the transmission line work on 5850.
Then when we tried to turn on the transmitter, a compressor blew up on
a fan motor in the rear of the transmitter. (How many things can go
wrong in one day?) So tomorrow morning they will remove the blower and
replace it with another, which we understand is a fair amount of work.
But we will try to finish this tomorrow and put 5850 kHz on the air --
finally! Wish us luck tomorrow.

In the photo below, WRMI Facility Manager Pat Travers is finishing up
the transmission line work on 5850 kHz. Here's where you really need
to know what you're doing!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3 CW, Oct 19 at 0622 UT, single-letter beacon A
every dekasecond, anywhere but Quartzsite AZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 90.1 FM, Oct 19 at 2010 UT, on caradio in Enid, KUCO FM
has CCI from another classical station in fall fundraising, mentions
whether or not to broadcast the Clinton Symphony Orchestra. Normally
such all-too-common QRM would be from KHCC Radio Kansas, Hutchinson,
but why would they mention such an orch? That brings to mind Clinton,
IOWA, where research shows there is one in that town on the
Mississippi, ergo, WOI-FM Ames IA? Outside its main coverage area but
IPR do have a ``Symphonies of Iowa`` program on Sunday afternoons.
However, I have not been able to correlate that with Clinton.

Strangely, the only 90.1 hit for Iowa in the WTFDA FM DB is for
WOI-FM, but with news/talk format on HD. What about classical format?
That is on the HD2 of 90.1 per this confusing map and attempt to
explain it all:

I don`t have any HD receiver for FM; or AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
