Hauser
** ALGERIA. 891, Sept 12 at 0421, big het upon WLS 890, and can barely
separate a bit of audio, presumed this usual bigsig from RTA, and
setting me off on a complete TA bandscan, see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sept 12 at 1825, and a couple hours
earlier, no signal at Brasil remote from LRA-36 nor any expected this
week, but the multi-hour Spanish/German/English special from RAE Bs.
As. has been rescheduled for Sat Sept 19, weather permitting (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA, 15034-USB, Sept 12 at 1421, VOLMET from CHR, Trenton
Military, Ontario, with ``no report received`` from Trenton itself and
several other locales. Usual situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 12 at 0636, RHC English suptorted here during a
COVID-19 PSA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 774, Sept 12 from 1139: first check as always of 774, on the
PL-880 finds a considerable carrier from the NW, no doubt NHK, so
worth a complete bandscan on the R75 with E-W longwire before going
back to sleep: there is some audio on both 774 and 747 from NHK2 500
kW superpowers, JOUB Akita and JOIB Sapporo, respectively, which may
be decommissioned next year; at first seem Japanese, but careful,
these include various language lessons. At 1159 I`m back on 774 but
cannot make out any distinctive 1200 timesignal. At 1207, 747 still
audible with talk; sunrise here today 1212 UT. See UNIDENTIFIED for
more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 684, Sept 12 at 0424, among numerous TA carriers, two are
beating here with some music audio, presumed RNE as usual (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
Sept 12 at 1148 the 1130 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 over some jamming
audible. Several weeks ago this was replaced by a gospel huxter
scheduled for same time on Sunday, and believe it happened more than
once, so I gave up on this airing and removed it from my schedules,
despite its remaining on the WRMI skedgrid. Let`s hope it stix now.

Resnoozing, missed checking 1300 Sat on WRMI 15770. Did anyone hear
it? Next:
1930vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
2300 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 to NE

Thanks this week for financial support from Robert W Gruska,
Glendale NY, who has been contributing periodically since at
least 2009; a PMO to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702;
if by check please in US funds on a US bank.

Financial support may alternatively be sent via PayPal to
woradio at yahoo.com - not necessarily US funds as PP will convert
(Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** U S A. 7570 // << 7730, Sept 12 at 1437, extended Sabbathday TOMBS
WRMI broadcast is strangely reversed in signal strength, as 7570 is
the one closest to our direxion and normally stronger (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1360, Sept 12 at 0357 UT standing by for the much heralded 6
hour DX test from WNJC, Washington Twp., NJ, wherever that is; address
is in Sewell, which is about 10 miles south of Camden, on Egg Harbor
Road, but that`s nowhere near Sewell. Egg Harbor strangely enough is
not on the coast but about 15 miles inland from Atlantic City on the
Expwy. Would you believe that there are five different Wash Twps in
NJ, each in a different county?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Township,_New_Jersey

Washington Township, Bergen County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Burlington County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Morris County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Warren County, New Jersey

Gloucester County is the one inhabited by Sewell. and that`s the one
just south of Camden, i.e. Philadelphia PA.

Quite a pileup of signals, almost like a graveyard. Coverage maps show
1360 crammed with stations east of the Mississippi, but rather sparse
to the west, yet with three in relatively small Iowa. None in OK, the
nearest to us KPHN EWTN El Dorado KS, barely audible daytime. NRC AM
log has a total of 61 USA on 1360, even a second one in NJ,
Newton/Paterson.

One signal slightly above the others mentions Iowa, and at 0400 ID for
KSCJ Sioux City 1360 and FM. It`s U2 5/5 kW supposedly with a notch
null thisaway in a 4-way narrow X pattern. No sign of CW or other DX
test sounds thru the KSCJ net news until 0404; rechex at 0541 and 0627
also fruitless. Longer listening periods are required, and there will
be another six hours UT Sunday at 0400-1000, with greater power. I
wonder how far west WNJC made it? James Niven near Austin TX, got it
by recording and then reviewing the first hour, 2296 km away vs only
2019 for me. East? Arctic Norway but that`s to a super-DXing setup.
I`m on the R75 with E-W 100-ft longwire which should favor NJ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 12 from 0421,
since I am not getting merely WNJC 1360 DX test; starting with a big
het upon WLS 890, from 891, no doubt Algeria with traces of audio. On
the R75 with E-W longwire. Then at 9 kHz intervals stepping 1 kHz
below each TA channel, some of them with a beat from at least (2)
signals:

531, 558(2), 567, 576, 585, 603(2), [not 621], 639(2), 657, *684(2),
693, 729, 774(2), 837, 855(2), 882, *891, 909, 936(2), 999(2), 1017,
1026?, 1044, 1053*, 1089, 1107(2), 1125, 1152, 1215, 1305(2), 1566,
1575; and no doubt domestic, 1710(2). *are strongest ones and with
audio separately entered under SPAIN, as well as ALGERIA (Glenn
Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 12 from 1139:
first check as always of 774, on the PL-880 finds a considerable
carrier from the NW, no doubt NHK, so worth a complete bandscan on the
R75 with E-W longwire before going back to sleep: there is some audio
on both 774 and 747 from NHK2 superpowers which may be decommissioned
next year, at first seems Japanese, but careful, these include various
language lessons. Also carriers: 828, 891(2), 972, 1053, 1107, 1566.

>From 1205 another 9-kHz bandscan, axually tuning downward: 567, 657,
693, 747, 774, 828(2), 873. Sunrise here: 1212 UT. I wonder what the
other 828 is besides JOBB Osaka? There`s a 50 kW in Beijing and
several lesser/further Chinese; and 50 kW in Vietnam. See also JAPAN.

This correlates with simulmonitoring by my neighbor, as to IRCA:

`Oklahoma TP DX 9/12/20 Richard Allen 5:49am #11529
The best morning of the new TP DX season thus far (LSR 1210),
594 JOAK poor at 1205.
747 JOIB good at 1200-1157 (audible on barefoot ULR)
774 JOUB fair-to-good at 1212-1158 with severe QRM from nearby
KSPI-780.
828 JOBB good-to-fair at 1155-1204.
873 JOGB fair at 1152; poor at 1208.
972 HLCA good at 1151 (audible on barefoot ULR).
Skywave SSB and PL-310 with ALA1530LNP. Good DX. Richard Allen,
near Perry OK USA.`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Sept 11 at 2225, RNA is S7-S8 but sup-torted
modulation as usual; why bother to broadcast? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 4940, Sept 12 at 0053, anonymous missionary station is on
tonight with S6-S9 signal into TWR Bonaire SDR, amid English! Or
rather sermon with consecutive Spanish translation, occasional
clapping congregation. Heard Pastor Stendal mentioned, but is this
him? Sounds very much like acting president Drumpf; from the same
benighted Queens barrio? A Brother Allen/Allan/Alyn/Alyn/Alan
mentioned later as runs past 0100 with no break. 0108 about testimony
on a mission trip. 0118 retune, bit of music, and back to studio with
the long-winded predicador heard previous nights only in Spanish ---
no native languages---, citing Isaiah XVII. Retune at 0150, signal has
faded way down to S5-S6 vs storm noise level. There`s a tiny one on
the Carib coast of Colombia, but lots further circa Nicaragua,
Yucatán, Cuba, per Blitzortung (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11800, Sept 11 at 2224, RHC is S8-S9 but JBM; even less so
the parasitic spurs 11790/11810. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 12 at 0142, R. Progreso is finally back on with
music. Have not checked absolutely every night, but had been missing
ever since at least August 25, i.e. 17 days. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, 9690 & 12030, Fri Sept 11 at 2223, REE English
succeeds but Justin Coe is presenting some jazz eulogizing Bryant Park
in NYC --- what`s that to do with Spain?! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830v, Sept 11 at 2222, VOT English to us is on but with
music buried under NSS RTTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed Friday
September 11 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S9+30/35 so jamming under is almost
inaudible.

NOT confirmed UT Saturday September 12 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, as
something else has replaced without notice, gospel huxtress in
English. Skedgrid shows `Circuit Rider` with a different 15-minute
program each weekday, plugged in at various times. Might also bump
some Vivas Miamis filling quarter-hour ATS, haven`t investigated. BUT
WOR is still on 7780 at this time, VG to Maine SDR, but only clickbuzz
at UTwente, local problem? Next:

** U S A. 7490, Fri Sept 11 at 2215, WBCQ sounds like drama, old tyme
radio? 6160v not on yet for that to start at 2300. Guess it is as
scheduled at 2200 Fri on 7490v, ``Challenge Ministries``. BTW
equivalent times on sked are still labeled ``EST`` while they are
really EDT. Those are NOT THE SAME! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, 5130, 6160v, UT Sat Sept 12 at 0000, WBCQ starting
`AAAWWW`, in that order as they are not synchronized and I hear the
WTO starting over and over as I tune from one to another. Final
interjexion in the theme is ``flummoxed``. 0001 recheck of 6159.9
finds it reverted to some old jazz, but soon back to AW and I keep
listening there for somewhat better reception than 7490, and 5130
unusable. He starts saying they have two rules: ``don`t steal and
don`t lie`` --- yet some stuff was stolen this week but miraculously
returned; has been a stressful week, like Peyton Place [an old steamy
soap opera, I think: I never watched it]. 0011 says there is no audio
on 6 or 5 MHz --- yes, there is, I am listening on 6. AW claims he
avoids discussing politix with friends and family he knows he is not
going to persuade --- [but We the Audience are neither!] 0013 call
from Andrew about something. It`s Sept 11, YOOL 2020, anniversary of
you know what. Then they`re both into vicious political ranting:
Hillary should be in jail! Angela yells; yet at each opening he
persuades her to get closer to the mike. Don`t blame the cops or
defund them for killing George Floyd --- he died later! Blames George
Soros for paying rioters = Democrats = communists. I can`t take any
more and tune out at 0036. Just as well, as I remember it`s time to
check 4940 for Colombia, q.v. Unfortunately(?) John Carver`s computer
broke again so no report from him this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. Bedtime ND beacon scan 0638-0645 UT Sept 11,
finds several MCW Canadians remaking it, including:

317, dash and VC, 1000 watts from La Ronge, Saskatchewan
326, dash and YQK, 200 watts from Kenora, Ont. tuned to 325-USB
351, dash and YKQ, 500 watts from Ft Rupert - Waskaganish, Québec
362, dash and SB, 500 watts from Greater Sudbury, Ontario;
mixing
with 365, AA, 100 watts from Fargo - Harwood, North Dakota
401, dash and YPO, 500 watts from Peawanuck, Ont. tuned to 400-USB
413, dash and YHD, 250 watts from Dryden, Ontario
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Sept 11 at 1356-1400: JBA 13835 &
13530, < 12880, < 12870, > 12210 & 12190. I don`t get to the lower 11s
and upper 10s before massive closedown time 1400* (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 4939.971, not 4939.71 --- as I suspected,
Brandon`s carrier presumed Perú left out a 9 as Wolfgang Bueschel
measured it on 4939.971, and that closely matches the SAH of about 25
Hz I have been getting, beating with anonymous Colombian, Sept 11 at
0121 direct. WB:

``4939.995 1/2 kHz measured in Edmonton at 0059 UT on Sept 11, only
S=5-6 -94dBm poor and tiny signal in Canada, Spanish recognized.
4939.971 next adjacent likely R San Antonio Peru similar poor
signal``

4940, final check 0605 Sept 11, only one JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Sept 11 at 0607, RHC English still on here, S9+10, and
still at final check 0648 instead of closing by 0600. At 0607 usual
6100 is JBM, and 6145 sufficient but only S7-S8. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Sept 11 at 0611, VON is gone again. IIRC, had
been on last few nights, unremarked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed first
airing, UT Fri Sept 11 at 0130 on WRMI 5850 VG S9+20/30, // 5010 noisy
S9/+10. Next:

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

COLUMN: On Patriot Day, let us embrace true patriotism
James Neal | Enid News & Eagle | Reflexions with Purpose

...Terrorists could bring down buildings, but they could not touch
what America really is — an ethos of liberty and justice, an ideal
imperfectly pursued over more than two centuries. Only we could do
that. Only we could deviate from and destroy our birthright. And since
Sept. 11, 2001, we’ve been hard at it.

No terrorist could make America abandon its core principles of
individual liberty, due process and privacy. But, we did it to
ourselves in the inaptly named USA PATRIOT Act...

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 4940, Sept 10 at 0244, via TWR Bonaire, JBA
carrier only, which may be R. San Antonio, Peru, eclipsed by the new
nameless Colombian? when it`s on but not tonight nor later. Several
monitors and I find it connected with LV de tu Conciencia, and one
even heard an ID for its inactive frequency 6010 probably from an old
recording, but nothing definite about real name or location now,
remote Puerto Lleras like 6010 & 5910 were? Rafael Rodríguez says he
has no info about that yet. I`ve also asked a Canadian charity backer
but no reply. Alan Pennington, BDXC-UK recorded via Bonaire a *2300
sign-on Sept 9 with no ID but 3rd verse of truncated Colombian NA.

4940 is back on, Sept 11 at 0039 check via Bonaire, S9 with carrier -4
to -5 Hz on SynchAM, preacher droning. 0045 into mariachi song, but
this is not Mexico. After that preacher says he is confined to home
because of coronavirus, in April. Sounds like the same spiel I heard a
few nights ago.

BTW, Brandon Jordan found the other weak carrier, Peru? on 4939.71. I
never hear any such het but a much closer SAH now. So are they
deliberately obliterating fellow Christians? Evangelicals do not get
along with Catholix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5800, UT Thu Sept 10 at 0300, `Encore` on WRMI, new
time Brice Avery is unaware of, and indeed it is not yet a prepeat but
a repeat of previous weekend`s I already heard including a Passacaglia
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1710 kHz, Sept 10 at 0637-0645+ UT, a loop heard definitely
mentioning COVID-19 several times at peaks vs high storm noise level.
I often have a JBA carrier on 1710 but first time I have had some
audio from this. No ID caught, but often reported further east is TIS
licensee despite the music, and also said to have temp authority for
higher power than 10 watts, 100? from Secaucus NJ, which is 2119 km
from Enid = 1317 statute miles:

Harold Frodge, MI, recently: ``1710 WQFG689 Hudson County (Seacaucus)
NJ may be running higher power than usual during the pandemic. They
are fair-good here often now. They play music behind some of the
features.`` And from him earlier in MARE:

``1710 WQFG689 Hudson County (Seacaucus) NJ; 0136-0145+, 7/24; Talk
over music at tune-in re COVID testing to 0139 call/QTH ID into
traffic, activity & biz restrictions. VGood peaks! Best ever heard.
(Frodge-MI)``

And from Larry Will: ``7/15, 0017, 1710am. WQFG689 Hudson County, NJ.
COVID-19 PSA, Highway construction in Hoboken and Secaucus. Fair to
good signal. (Will-MD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2051)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9-kHz JBA MW carrier search, Sept 10 at 0630 UT: 621,
747, 846, likely Canaries, ???, Kiritimati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3-CW kHz, single-letter beacon A has not been heard
all summer despite frequent tunebys vs HSNL. Now this along with a
contribution and unsolicited testimonial:

``The letter `A` station on 2097.3 has been QRT for some time now. It
was [RST] 579 on VE6JY [Alberta remote] after dark many nights. 73,

** CANADA. Richard Langley reminds us that CHU has a page about its
outages, showing none on Sept 8 when I was not hearing 14670-CUSB:
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
but it was last down August 13-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 9 at 2051 in choking Arabic, RHC is back here
ex-extraviation to 15340 the day before, S8-S9 with hum. Something`s
not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.058v, Wed Sept 9 at 2200, VOT English to us is already
in news so opened a bit early? Tuned-in via UTwente, S9+50! on the
meter but sounds much weaker and noisy as if a thunderstorm right over
Holland --- but Blitzortung shows the only storms in Europe now are in
the Gulf of Bothnia, and western Mediterranean between islands of
Spain and Italy. Maybe it`s a defect in VOT`s own transmission, or QRN
to the Ankara-Emirler STL? No storms over Turkey either.

I hopefully keep monitoring in case `Letterbox` make a comeback. After
news: 2207 very brief headlines from Foreign Press [no Turkish press
today]; 2209 COVID-19 PSA; 2210 This Day in History; 2213 Did You Know
That? 2216 multi-lingual ID reel which takes about 2 minutes, what a
time-filler! It would be more helpful if each language were introduced
by its English name, to help us learn to distinguish them, especially
the similar Turkic ones. 2218 into Turkish songs, and onward, so yet
again no mailbag. Something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
