Glenn Hauser logs May 24-25, 2024  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 25 2024

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA [non]. 15474.8 approx., Fri May 24 at 1454, JBA carrier
direct, and nothing from LRA36 on 15475.98 RCUSB. Surely Furosato no
Kaze, from Japan roundabout via UZBEKISTAN, Tashkent
characteristically skewed frequency, for Korea North. RNASG is
scheduled Fri at 12-15 and Tue at 13-15, as I have warned about a
collision. No time now, too late to check if there be blockage into
Europe or South America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. Just in via the WOR iog from Tim Gaynor, May 25 at 0119
UT: ``Unique Radio AU & Website --- Hi Glenn and columnists,
Unfortunately, the Unique Radio AU site will be going offline (After
Wednesday of next week) due to Square taking over Weebly and
increasing costs to the legacy websites and turning them into business
websites. The increases would be from $ 36.00 AUD a month (I'm
presently paying) to over $ 100 AUD a month, which is way too much.

As you know, Unique Radio AU site hasn't really been all there for a
while now but the increased costs has now essentially made my mind up
for good. Jen's 'Calling all Radio Nutz', webcasts will continue and
She will post details here with any changes (If any).

I do have plans for a new service for a few hours a night, still using
5035 and 3210 kHz, USB, later in the night and hopefully a new online
website under a different moniker.

The Shortwave will only be talk based with no music and offered for
lease to selected broadcasters or programme producers. I would still
like to feature 'World of Radio' and 'The International Radio Report'.
I'll let you know when the new entity will be back, with thanks
always, Timothy Gaynor, 5035 kHz & 3210 kHz, Domestic Radio Sender,
Moree N.S.W., Australia`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. Re: 60 Minutes - Ana Montés YouTube link -- Hey
Glenn, I heard you mention the story and am forwarding a link to the
terrestrial broadcast that aired here last Sunday night. It never
mentions "number stations" or even "shortwave" by name but did call it
a "high frequency" broadcast. I wonder why they presented it this way?
If they were trying to break down the "Cuban tradecraft" and how it is
not high tech, then why not tell yourself audience that her messages
came by shortwave radio, aka in layman's terms?

https://youtu.be/7tGGdJwbiEU?si=NWgbo1Pvlpqcsfr2
Ambassador, Pentagon official among Americans who spied for Cuba | 60
Minutes --- Best regards, Chris Campbell``

Well they did show a page of 5-digit numbers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 11665, May 24 at 1503, JBA carrier direct. Thought
it might be the only SW left from Malaysia, Wai FM et al., but per
EiBi 2230-1405; now amid 1500-1600 it`s CRI Pashto via Kashgar/Kashi,
land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 15690.045 approx., May 24 at 1456 JBA talk off-frequency
direct. EiBi shows R. Farda for Iran, via Biblis site at 0530-1630;
also via Thailand, no doubt different exact frequency, at 0230-0530
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935 USB, May 25 at 0118, music JBA in HSNL adding
up to S7/S9. Many logs here as Radio Free Whatever:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,129770.0.html
including from station itself:
Got Noise? No problem! listen here instead!
https://radiofreewhatever.mixlr.com/events/3439252
Indeed there it is when I bring it up at 0157, for most of an hour
untill ``This live event has ended`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, UT Sat May 25 at 0119, JBA music in HSNL
adding up to S8/S9. Surely Ballsmacker Radio on regular sked; yes:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,129772.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, May 24 at 1818 into UTwente, S9+5 of horrible
noise but somewhat different than before: rapid clickery and hum
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri May 24 at 2200, token English from SNR,
sufficient S9/+10 direct but not as strong as can be, much stronger
than 15520 for ME. 15390 for Africa, JBA carrier with Doppler flutter.
Too much distraxion, could not catch name of interviewee at 2209, but
discussing how Russia and China have not become democratic instead of
authoritarian as hoped since 1989. And Spain is the ``center of the
climate crisis``. Will have to wait till they get around to posting
the ``25/05`` podcast at:
https://www.rtve.es/play/audios/english-language-broadcast/
or the repeat at 0200 UT Sat on webcast only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, May 24 at 2158 VOT not off the air today, audible
direct with IS and ID, S9/+10 vs too much local noise. Tuning Maryland
SDR, S9+5/20 at 2230, `Turkish Folk Tales` ending, music. 2237 `That`s
Why` by Ms Badax, also modulation distortion so no idea of topic. 2253
s/off again no mention of SW, only a snippet of IS before chopoff, no
finesse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6913 USB, UT Sat May 25 at 0034, apparent MARS net led by
AAR#NF, mentioned training, VP vs HSNL and contacts even weaker.
Nothing on this frequency in Klingenfuß 2022. This was an AF Day
crossband contact frequency I last logged May 12, 2019 at 0030 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. Not a log, yet, but: VOA plans special coverage in
Portuguese of BAL = Basketball Africa League on Saturday May 25 via
SAO TOME and BOTSWANA, which may temporarily replace other broadcasts,
at 1200-1500 UT on São Tomé 17675, and on Botswana 15580.

Also on Monday May 27, 1430-1700 & 1830-2030 on SAO 17655; 1430-2030
on BOT 15580, instead of English. Per EiBi, Portuguese is already on
17655 at 1700-1800 via Vatican, and 1800-1830 via SAO.

And on this date only, the Sudan service in English at 1630-1700 on
11910 will be via Lampertheim, Germany, instead of Botswana.

https://bal.nba.com/news/full-2024-bal-finals-schedule-confirmed

The playoffs already started May 24 in Kigali, Rwanda. May 25 involves
an Angolan team which is why VOA is Portuguesing this; May 27 might or
might not depending on a Saturday win. The Final will be Sat June 1
from 14 UT, possibly requiring more special coverage. There are also
games on next Wednesday and Friday.

So is this the Voice of AFRICA, or Voice of AMERICA? Why doesn`t VOA
broadcast play-by-play of US sporting events? Godforbid our resources
could be further wasted with silly ballgames. I believe however that
R. Martí does broadcast some complete béisbol games of interest to
dentroCubans. Quite a few escapees get jobs with MLB -- take that!
(Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2244 monitoring: confirmed Friday
May 24 at 2048 the 2030 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.995 kHz, not 918
or 207, steady S9+8 into UTwente across Europe. But 2053 sudden fade
to S7 audiblizing ACI, power cut?

Also confirmed first SWBC, Friday May 24 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, JBA
S7/S9 direct and undermodulated, much weaker than 9395 & 9455 as to be
expected due to azimuths. Bonaire should get 9955 better but at 2221
inaudible in noise level; but Maryland SDR has it good at S8/S9.

Also confirmed Friday May 24 at 2252 the 2230 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, 3975.003, S9+10 into UTwente. Next:

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` check of WBCQs, May 24 circa 2335 into NH SDR:
3265+ and 5130+ OFF! 6160 -70 Hz = 6159.930 TOM but not BS, S7/S9.
7490 -67 Hz = 7489.933 FKB S9+5/10. 9330.00 WLCR Portuguese S7/S9. At
0000 UT May 25, 7490- announces this AAAWWW originally aired March 8,
2024 --- yet another rerun! Never mind. I already reported on that one
at the time

Yes, 5130+ ``Radio Angela`` with ``Radio *rump International`` or as
we call it, `A*ATT` = All *rump all the time, is still missing
whenever checked at random day or night since May 14; last heard
weakened on May 11. Has anyone heard AW explain what happened, on air,
in a Twit or any way? Could it be that they have finally recovered
from delusions, or transmitter broke? Latest info on R. Angela webpage
is from a year ago! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA. 17600, May 23 at 1835, JBA carrier direct from Ifrikiya
FM, which might float English now. By 1850 UTwente check, much better
in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 15034 USB, May 23 at 1840, Trenton Military with
No-Report-Received terminal forecasts from Shannon, Prestwick,
Keflavik, Lajes; but then reports were received as of 1800 from
several Canadian aviation weathers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. RF 15, May 23 circa 1700 & 1800 UT, KTBO ``14`` OKC is
breaking up as if DX QRMed, very unusual. APRS map shows large tropo
blob between Enid and Pampa TX, so suspect it`s Fox Amarillo, KCIT
with 925 kW ERP ND. AMA is about 90 degrees off the side from my
rooftop UHF antenna permaimed toward OKC, and rehooked the one loose
guywire yesterday. No sign of any DX on `open` channels; only other
anomaly is RF 29 KTUZ ``Shawnee`` = OKC market, a bit weaker than
usual on the meter but not breaking up. No full-powers on 29 in
Amarillo area but lots of others across TX. Second possibility on RF
15 is KJTL, Fox Wichita Falls, 1000 kW direxional NNE toward here
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2243 monitoring: confirmed UT
Thursday May 23 at 0137 the 0130 on WRMI: 9395, S9+5/25 direct.

Also confirmed at 0137 the 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9/+5 direct unusable
including high storm noise level; but at 0158, S8/9+5 clear into
Bonaire SDR where it`s aimed.

Missed checking Thu May 23 at 1630 on SWG Radio, Germany, 6160; anyone

Hauser
** ALGERIA. 17600, May 22 at 0647, Ifrikya FM at S7/S8 in music,
French. Propagating again after a spell of lowered night MUFs.
Previously had some English in second half of this hour. SSOB by far
with several other JBA on 16m (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, May 22 at 0647, RHC with S9+25/35 of dead air in
English, but no signal on 12000. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Not
found on any other frequency by 5025 Rebelde manages to be on and
modulating (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 9635, May 22 at 0646, no signal from ORTM, and a JBA one on
5995; contrary to last night when only 9635 was on as early as 0648;
traditional switchtime is 0800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 15390, May 22 at 1531, REE finally back on air to Africa,
only S5/S6 in Spanish to UTwente, // stronger 15520 to ME. Both
scheduled to start at 1500 weekdays, 1400 weekends. EiBi shows 15390
target is East Africa, but 161 degrees from Noblejas is more like
West, Central & South Africa. Officially registered CIRAF zone targets
for 15390 in HFCC are 46,47,52,57:

https://www.itu.int/net/ITU-R/terrestrial/broadcast/images/broad-ciraf2.gif
i.e. down the west coast of Africa from Western Sahara to South
Africa, inland as far as the western half of Sudan; East Africa would
be 48.

Reconfirmed all four on air into UTwente, token English from SNR, Wed
May 22 at 2202: 15389.990, VP S8/S9; 15520.000, S8/9+5; 17715.013,
S7/S9; 17855.000, S8/9+5. 2207 Salman Rushdie speaking during book
tour in Spain for his latest in translation: note: his books are funny
including `The Satanic Verses`. Undercurrent of translation into
Spanish. 2226 about boxing? competition involving singers, huh? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 22 at 2200, no signal of VOT English into
UTwente; nor on possibly overrun 9875, nor either by 2215 recheck.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2242 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening
Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees.
Dear Glenn: Update, WOR #2242, my confirming is short and sweet, lack
of reception due to radio blackouts, and solar flares are hampering my
listening and confirming your broadcasts, WRMI:
9395 kHz, double voices heard, why? QSB fading a lot, 0130, 0144, 0159

longpath?? (gh)

WORLD OF RADIO 2243 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday May 21 at 2333 the
2330 on SW Gold Radio, Germany, 3975.000, S9/+5 into UTwente.

Also confirmed Tuesday May 21 at 2335 the 2330 on WRMI 9395, S6/S9
with storm noise into Plymouth MN SDR.

Also confirmed Wednesday May 22 at 1951 the 1930 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, 6160.000, S9/+10 into UTwente, and running 5 words behind
into the same, 3975.003 at S9.

Not confirmed Wednesday May 22 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490-, due to Internet
outage here; anyone hear it? Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S;
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW;
1630 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 6160.

** U S A. 9475, May 22 at 0021, WTWW still on here, BB on Methodist
scisms, S9+50 direct. Not yet QSY to 5085; first was at 2300, then
0000, now 0100? Not rechecked. Makes sense to laten it with expanding
daylight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** ALGERIA. 17600, May 21 at 1840 tune-in, Ifrikya FM English in
progress, speaker with heavy French? accent, S9+10/15 into UTwente
about African nations achieving ``food sovereignty`` such as in Sudan;
prompting guest, VP of GRFI, to laud Ifrikya FM, and plugging current
event in Algiers. 1847 with 710 exhibitors, more than 25K
professionals, about agriculture until May 23. 1848 back to French &
Arabic IDs; music I find enjoyable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 21530, May 21 at 2204, JBA carrier, second only to 21490 at
S4/S6; per EiBi CNR1 jamming and SOH do not start until 2300, but
surely do. Likely likewise the JBA carriers on 18970, 16100 at 2214.
See also UNIDENTIFIED 21530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. Spy numbers figure in this 60 Minutes story May 19:
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/spies-for-cuba-a-danger-to-us-national-security-as-american-secrets-sold-around-the-world-60-minutes-transcript/
I don`t see a link to axual audiovideo of segment; must be somewhere.
It seems that after serving her sentence, Ana Montés is living the
good life in Puerto Rico where she is treated as a heroine (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [and non]. 5990, May 21 at 1905, as I am checking Canary Is
SDR for 5995 MALI, q.v., a big S9+25/40 open carrier here with slight
hum, trace of mod at best. EiBi shows it`s VIRI in Albanian at
1820-1920! Typical shutout at Sirjan. I assume this minor language is
of interest due to the Islamic minority there, who are thus being
disserved; with ACI from 5985 Chinese music, i.e. CRI so-called
Portuguese service to southern Africa from Beijing site. How about
second registered fq for IRIB Albanian hour? At 1917 into UTwente,
nothing on 7325, and 7310 Chinese, probably CNR1 jammer vs SOH. And by
1921, 5990 is off as expected to 1920* in IRIB`s wacky :20 to :20
scheduling of most languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 9635, May 21 at 0648, surprised to find S6/S8 in French here,
normally nothing. Got to be Bamako as nothing on 5995. Normally
switches from 5995 to 9635 at 0800. Permanent change or error? Check
around 1900 May 21 into Canary SDR, neither. But at 1921, 5995 has
come on, S9+20/40 with heated discussion in Bambara? and music breaks.
2006 recheck in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, May 20 at 2035 UT check on caradio, KETU Catoosa
back on the air with Spanish music, after missing at 1530 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. 11935, May 21 at 1642, via UTwente,
horrible buzzroar gets ACI from CRI English via Kashgar, EAST
TURKISTAN on 11940. Still 1854 in the clear without ACI (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 17855, Monday May 20 at 2200, token English from
SNR, VG S9+30/40 direct, preview of topic: an AI treaty in Europe
rating countries on a scale of 1-12, as in interview underway at 2208
after news. As usual lately, almost as good on 15520 backwards to ME,
S9/+10, poor on 17715 to S America, no signal on 15390 for Africa.
15390 has been missing so long that I wonder if they QSYed without
notice, at least not in English. HFCC A-24 shows all these 161-degree
alternatives available on weekdays during this hour: 21620, 11670,
15350, 15385, 11530. By 2230 when French should be on, I check each
via UTwente for possible // to 17855: none, altho there is weak signal
from algo on 11670, which would be CNR Beijing from 2230 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 18155 USB, May 21 at 2207, EA7GX contacting a W7 near Bend,
Oregon and other Americans, ``Peter in Spain``. Not surprising since
Noblejas booms in S9+20/30 on 17855 in non-English. QRZ.com: ``EA7GX
Spain flag Spain, PEDRO ROLANDO ORTEGA, ALBORAN 7, LA LINEA DE LA
CONCEPCION, CA 11300, Spain`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 20 at 2159, TRT IS, 2200 timesignal, opening
English, S9+10/20 direct but still too much high local noise level -
HLNL of S9+10. So not off the air today, but no time to listen in
detail. Recheck into UTwente where measured: 2253.6 s/off ignoring SW,
2254.3 IS but chopoff by 2254.7, no finesse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785.009, May 21 at 2159, no signal direct from
VOT English vs S9 HLNL while RRI 11800 manages to be JBA. But at
2200:15, JBA carrier briefly on 11785. Recheck at 2215 not even that.
Finally at 2234 I tune UTwente to confirm no 11785 --- but there is
Ms. Badax on 9875.007! That`s the 2030-2130 English frequency running
way overtime. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. S9+15/25, but
in addition heavy ACI from stronger 9880 which is CRI Esperanto with a
Chinese? accent, for S America via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, land of
imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems; not
that that gets Turkey off the hook for denied genocide against
Armenians a century ago. Anyhow, not going to try to listen under such
circumstances, and besides, it`s primarily time for BBC and NBC news
on TV. But recheck at 2254 both 9875 and 11785 off (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2243 monitoring: confirmed Monday
May 20 at 1930.5 on SW Gold Radio, Germany, 6160.001 S9+20 and
3975.003 S+10, into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Tuesday May 21 at 0334 the 0330 on WRMI 7780,
S9+10/20 into Querétaro SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday May 21 at 1322 the 1300 on WRMI 9955, S5/S7
very poor direct. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW;
2330 UT Tuesday SW Radio, Germany 3975;
1930 UT Wednesday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160;
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW;
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S;
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW;
1630 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 6160.

** U S A. 17790, May 21 at 1527, WRMI-7, with IS and IDs,
``programming resumes at top of the hour`` -- NOT! 1530 stops and
something undermod, presumably ``Radio Africa`` to S America.
Propagation continues very degraded, but at S7 direct, this wins as
the SSOB. Not all WRMI frequencies ``resume`` at ToH, but they don`t
have a runup version specifying ``bottom of the hour``. Nominally
17790 would start at 1500, until 2100. Something`s odd at Okee (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, May 21 at 0658, S9+50! of dead air from WWCR direct,
as often happens late at night instead of TOMBS. Standard derision
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13845.026, May 21 at 1534, WWCR-3 perceptibly off-frequency,
so I check two remotes for accurate measurement: UTwente inaudible,
yet enough signal to lock onto as above. Same readout for NH SDR,
accurate calibrated with WWV. MUF is such that 13845 is weaker than
usual while 12160 blasts in direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** URUGUAY. 24965 USB, May 20 at 2206, CX4RT working FL and other US.
Only phone signal on band. A few minutes earlier, nothing at all on
10m. QRZ.com: ``CX4RT Uruguay flag Uruguay, Juan Conde, Aveneu Victor
Hugo casi Lope De Vega Post Code 20100, Punta del Este Grid Square
Locator GF25MB Uruguay`` -- putting that GSL on your letter might
confuse the posties! Photos of antennas, equipment, motorcycles and
three girlchildren on website (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10024 AM, May 21 at 0650, S3/S5 with a trace of
modulation; broadcast spur? Klingenfuß shows numerous South American
`Air` SSBs on 10024. Besides Lima, EiBi shows only Tegucigalpa,
Honduras, ``COCESNA Cenamer Control``, never specifying AM or SSB mode
for anything (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 21530, May 20, Chinese? S3/S5, OSOB. Nothing in latest
HFCC; Aoki & Eibi show Sound of Hope 21529.7 and CNR1/Firedrake jammer
but not between 13 and 23. Not off-frequency so very likely jammer
from western ``China`` such as East Turkistan to be propagating way
over here mostly day path (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) {Time missing the
first time from this, the point being that it was at 1517!} cf CHINA
