** CHINA. 13130, June 14 at 1352, CNR1 jammer at S6-S8, presumably
also the JBA carriers on 13070, 12870, 12820; further bands not tried
today, time for breakfast. BTW, it`s a long time since I have heard
any Firedragon musical jamming instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, pirate Radio Nova log in last report got
an unsolicited e-QSL in about an hour:
http://www.w4uvh.net/RadioNova-QSL17.jpg
with same street/sky view in India? as on SSTV, the 89th entry at
http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html
with this note:
``Thanks for your report via WOR that you received our broadcast this
evening. It's good to know that we were making it to Oklahoma. We hope
your reception next time will be better. An eQSL verifying your
reception is attached. 73, RADIO NOVA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, June 14 at 0558 UT, NDB PN in Ponca City is
OFF --- first time I`ve noticed it absent. Easy come, easy go? Just
after 314-MCW kHz, EI in Enid came back after 3 months, and not long
ago 255-MCW kHz, SW in Stillwater came back. All allegedly 25 watts,
but PN was always much stronger, also than the other regular
groundwave Okie, 350-MCW kHz, RG at Will Rogers World Airport, SW OKC
All three of those still running, altho EI has CCI from OIN in Oberlin
KS, almost the same pitch too. PN still off at 1347 UT, the others
still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 25000, June 14 at 1720, WWV S8-S9 due to short-skip sporadic
E opening, with HF spots all over the country; yet no activity on the
24890-24990 12-meter hamband (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 28290-CW, June 14 at 1726, JBA beacon; try again
at 1757 when it`s slightly better, enough to copy: AL AL AL DE WJ5O/B
WJ5O/B W5JO/B. QRZ.com:

``WJ5O Primary only for: WJ5O/B WILLIAM H HAYS Troy, AL 36079 USA

Regardless of where We are in the sunspot cycle, I'm 99% a 10 Meter
Operator. The WJ5O propagation beacon can be heard on 28.289.3 MHz and
has been in operation since June 1992 running two Watts into a roof
mounted Vertical. Please "click" on My page to see the beacon set-up
and a current listing of Worldwide Ten Meter Beacons.
http://www.qsl.net/wj5o/
USAF retired SMSgt 1971 (Aircraft Maintenance)``

I had already crossed his path by searching on ten meter beacons, to
find the very same guy is responsible for this huge frequency list!
https://www.qsl.net/wj5o/bcn.htm
and his own entry is:
``28.2893 WJ5O C TROY ALABAMA # 2W VERTICAL New Frequency 25 Jan 14``
C=CONTINUOUS I=INTERMITTENT #=CONFIRMED AS ACTIVE OR HEARD

Yes, it was on the low side of 28290-, and now we know the AL means
Alabama rather than part of a grid square. Also:

28231, WA4FC/B, Prince George, Virginia audible again, 1723 June 14;

28276.5, unID at 1726, just too weak, but the only one on this exact
frequency is: ``28.2765 XE2WK C VICTORIA, TAMAULIPAS MEX # 5W,
VERTICAL NEW new Call July 09``.

During all this only a couple of JBA phone signals in the 28.4+ MHz
area, but plenty of hetty AM pileups on CB, mainly 27025, and LSB
freebanders on 27405, 27425, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 12800, June 13 at 1346, CNR1 jammer at S8-S9, none higher
WOOB but 15165. Tuning down past 11 MHz, mostly JBA or JBA carriers
presumed same: 12190, 11360, 11170, 11150, 10960, 10920, 10820. Also
sounds like same talk on 12140 but not synchronized at all; supposed
to be RFA Burmese via Tinian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13660, June 13 at 1343, RHC S9 and distorted on this leapfrog
mixing product of S9+10/20 13740 over S9+20/30 13700, another 40 kHz
beyond; no equivalent reverse leap on 13780 but a JBA carrier maybe
that, as nothing else listed; except Aoki/NDXC still shows a
fundamental RHC on 13780, NOT. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, June 13 at 2256, RHC is S9+10/15 of dead air, but when
modulation start will it be horribly distorted today? 11760 is
splattering plus/minus 10 as often now; 11800 is undermodulated but
not JBM; 15370 is undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. Greg Hardison replies to my previous log under USA:

``Glenn: -- "0113, 90.3, fringe local relay of KHYM...mixing with
another English station with GEICO ad, perhaps 100 kW KFLR..."

Hmmm, GEICO's pretty blatantly commercial; I don't think they burn
their resources with Bible-barkers. My money here would be squarely on
EE-lango XHITZ, "Z-90" for San Diego, from Tijuana. As far as my
recollection, TJ 90.3 has been pop-ish in English since its inception
in 1972. Further backing that would be your subsequent recept of
Sports (KWFN) on 97.3. I have to chortle at GEICO, which twice over
the years has quoted me @ circa 3 times what I pay for auto insurance!
Mucho 73z. -- GREG HARDISON`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, June 14 at 0156 tune-in, pirate music
S9/+10, 0157 Wolverine Radio/echoing ID, SSTV and off. Fortunately my
local scratchnoiseblob is away. Many more logs here starting at 0025:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,68316.0.html
Theme was songs with various colors in their title, and SSTV showed a
rainbow (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, June 14 at 0156, weak pirate music S4-S6,
unreadable ID, gmail address, surprise brief CW including ``O NOV`,
SSTV to 0155.8* following in the trax of Wolverine; logs here say it
was Radio Nova, with views of the fuzzy SSTV image:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,68319.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW kHz, June 13 at 0627 UT check, Enid`s only NDB,
EI at Woodring Airport is back! Also at 1300 UT. Nominal 25 watts not
far away but as always JBA. Had disappeared in mid-March and absent
when tuned by almost every night since until 3 months later. You may
assume it remain until I report it gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 13 at 2250, VOT is on with music, but ruined by
local scratch-noise blob spanning 9810-9850; another one vs the pirate
band, 6950-6985 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, June 13 at 1416, K6FRC HIFER beacon from Patterson
CA is JBA, no wonder: From QRZ.com, he also has beacons on 10 and 6
meters.

9000` where there was 2`` of snow at 30 degrees; working K6QAV Steve,
unheard; the OSOB. Fonetik was Charlie Brown John, but eventually
concluded John was his handle, not part of call. Yes:

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun June 14 at 0032, WTWW-2 has started `TONITO`,
organist introducing piece by Duke Ellington. I swiftly abandon the
distorted 5085 for clear $ tereo webcast via
http://wtww.us/pages/listen-live/tx2.php
Apparently a guest performance with a live applauding audience. Yes,
at 0058 Bob Heil outros as George performing in Buffalo; still no
program title, and WTWW hastens to revert to rock music (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 13 at 0615, RV 3 x 3945 harmonic is JBA
tonight, and the 2 x 3945 on 7890 is almost as good with a trace of
audio. This gives me an excuse to refer to Ron Howard`s neat 6-minute
recording of his earlier 11835 reception:
http://bit.ly/2UvGw9G

** MEXICO. The 6m DXMAP shows an MUF spike to 106 MHz somewhere south
of here, so altho most spots are much lower, I figure it`s worth
trying for a decent sporadic E FM DX session, and so it is, the first
here this ``summer`` since mid-April. Altho it`s pretty hot in the
car, at least it`s not in the sun, so the Nissan stock radio is
primary, with the DX-398 secondary, antenna out the window. The latter
has RDS but none of the DX signals are strong/stable enough to decode
if any, but at least I can keep track of two frequencies at a time.

This starts UT Sat June 13 at 0028. I try <92 MHz first, but nothing
makes it thru all the ACI or CCI. I might miss some US stations, but
q.v. a few, as I`m alert for frequencies speaking Spanish. All these
from my notes on my receivers in real time, no remotes, and no
recordings.

Prime reference source, the WTFDA FM Radio Station Database. Distances
city-to-city, not exact coords, distancefromto.net

0028, 93.3 Spanish, ``La Banda 93``, caller on phone then music, and
soon super-hype voice actor (SHVA) as ``La Nueva`` with no further
numbers. One or both non-IDs? The latter gets one hit:
``XHPNVO-FM 93.3 EL SALTO DGO MEX 6.0 kW 101.2 m 23-46-42 105-21-37
Spanish HD GRUPERA LA NUEVA 93.3``. 1575 km = 979 stmi

0030, 93.5, Spanish talk, VG but no RDS; advice show mentions ``las
bubis``

0033, 95.3, Spanish music mixing with KOKC translator - which really
gets out 100 km from a tall tower

0033, 97.3, PSA about Corona Virus in Spanish and a segment in an
Indigenous language; ``radio y televisión mexicana --- contigo``. Then
repeating phone number 4-12-13-14, in Udalá (?). Nothing fits in the
db, but there are about 4 stations in the northern tier of states. The
MUF in this opening.

0035, 93.1, Spanish ID as ``Hits FM 93.1`` and ad for algo on Canal 6;
0037 ID again, PSA about CV cuarentena from the Cámara de Diputados;
0039 ID as XHCTO, Torreón, Coahuila, and a third Hits non-ID. 0046,
``Habla Corazón``, from same station? program name? 0049 announcer
asks for reports (not DX, I assume), acknowledges listeners in Parral,
León, Torreón. Listed as:
``XHCTO-FM 93.1 TORREÓN COAH MEX 38.56 kW 208.0 m 25-31-29 103-27-19
Spanish SPANISH TEEN HITS - JUVENIL HITS FM``. 1304 km = 810 stmi

0040, 92.9, ad for Colegio España, ``92.9 España FM, definiendo la
nueva cultura``, about UNIS(?), ``estamos en tu cabeza``, Viz.:
``XHUNES-FM 92.9 DURANGO DGO MEX 10.0 kW 54.0 m 24-02-53 104-37-47
Spanish ESPAÑA FM College ESPAÑA FM Universidad España``. 1521 km =
945 stmi

0048, 92.1, Spanish rap mixing with norteña music

0051, 92.3, music and Spanish ID? missed; 0055 TC for 7,55 and temp 33
grados, music; time means it`s here in the CDT zone, not PDT, so
distinct from what I hear next; see Durango below later on 92.3.

0057 ``La Bestia 92.3``, Diputados PSA, CCI, then ToH ID as XHMMF,
Mexicali, Baja California. 0103 ``la mula blanca``, apparently not the
name of a different station. Viz.:
``XHMMF-FM 92.3 MEXICALI BC MEX 21.9 kW 48.08m 32-38-18 115-38-17
Spanish SPANISH HITS BALADAS LA BESTIA GRUPERA``. 1637 km = 1017 stmi

Had to run inside for another logbook, so resuming after a break:

0118, 92.3, ``Caliente`` slogan, Spanish music, CCI in Spanish and
English(Kansas?). Viz. one hit and in the PTA = probable target area:
``XHTRR-FM 92.3 TORREÓN COAH MEX 15.0 kW 208.0m 25-31-29 103-27-19
Spanish CALIENTE REGIONAL MEXICAN LA CALIENTE``. 1304 km = 810 stmi

0119, 92.7, romantic music in Spanish

0122, 96.5, romantic music in Spanish above the Okies, soon f/out

0125, 90.7, romantic music in Spanish, too much ACI both sides

0128, 93.1, Spanish music, 0129 DJ with advice like 93.5 earlier.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also USA for same opening

** SPAIN. 9690, June 12 at 2200, REE English this Friday has Alison
Hughes discussing the economic consequences of COVID-19 in Spain, and
still at 2226 check, so no music fill? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 12 at 2200 and still 2226, no signal in English
from VOT; something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 28224.4-CW, June 12 at 2151, K5GJR/B JBA over and over from
this beacon, only signal I`m getting on a quick 10mb scan during
sporadic E opening. A K5 must be fairly close. Here he is, from
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/k5gjr/b

``K5GJR USA flag USA Primary only for: K5GJR/B
Randy L Bates, Corpus Christi, TX 78415 USA

Hello All, I'm active on most bands 160-70cm's. I have a 10mtr beacon

and KRIS-6 back in the analog era (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2038 monitoring: confirmed first WRMI
broadcast, Friday June 12 at 2200 on 9955, S6-S8, no jamming or only a
trace? Same at 2226 recheck.

** U S A. 9330, June 12 at 1848, no signal here from WBCQ-6, off, or
500 kW WLCR just not propagating? 1859 check on UTwente, it`s on and
audible. But at 2156 back here definitely off -- maybe it was an
antenna rotation hiatus (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat June 13 at 0000, after FKB gospel huxter
finishes, WBCQ with a spot commercial for SDRs; 0001.5 dead air; 0002
a few seconds of old favorite song ``Wheels``; 0003 another tune; 0004
ID for AM 780, Monticello-Presque Isle, and a bit of USA Radio News,
cut off; 0004.5 finally ``William Tell Overture`` theme of `AAAWWW`
starts, 0007.8 among his first words, ``confusion``.

5130 and 6159.9 were not on at 0000, but at 0003 at least a carrier
from 5130 but can`t make out any mod. 6159.9 on by 0019 check, running
17 seconds behind 7490; and 5130 VP, unknown delay.

However, I`ve just noticed sporadic E MUF up to 106 MHz, so away I go
hoping to catch an FM DX opening here: see MEXICO, and USA.

John Carver fills us in on the rest of `AAAWWW`:

``Tonight's show started on 7490 four minutes late this evening and no
signal on 5130, and 6160 was carrying something else. Six minutes in,
5130 and 6160 were both carrying AAWWW but then 6160 went into Mama
Mia or some such. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan blamed the
late start on computer problems. 6160 back to AAWWW by the next check.
Opening talk about America and the world a "ball of confusion". The
foam in Allan's headphones began to break apart and he had black
flecks of it on his face and shirt. Then back to the ball of
confusion. A very animated Angela this evening went into a long rant
that I won't get into as it was a bit distasteful.

Phone call at 0019 from a caller who said that both Allan and Angela
were correct and then went on to say that most of the problems in this
country were due to vaccines and the way they were administered.
Another call immediately from a nurse that defended vaccines and
stated that vaccines and good hygiene are what has kept us alive and
healthy. Another immediate phone call from a gentleman who is learning
how to drive a truck and complaining about how difficult it was.

Allan then launches an appeal for racial diversity and acceptance.
Then a long discussion between Allan and the animated Angela about
recent events in this country. Closing prayer at 0056 and then reading
of two emails at 0058. Program was off the air at 0100 in the middle
of a sentence. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E opening, UT Saturday June 13, mainly from N/W
MEXICO, q.v., but also AZ:

0101, 92.3, traffic report about I-17 freeway, and State Road 89, then
weather by YL sponsored by Howard Air, news about marches in ``The
Valley``, all of which mean it has to be Phœnix AZ, viz.:
``KTAR-FM 92.3 GLENDALE AZ USA 98.0 kW 545.0 m 33-19-58 112-03-48 HD

TODAY`S BEST COUNTRY KTTI``. 1584 km = 984 stmi

0113, 90.3, fringe local relay of KHYM with commercials for Dodge
City, Woodward, i.e. 490-watt KHEV Fairview OK, mixing with another
English station with GEICO ad, perhaps 100 kW KFLR, Family Life Radio,
Phœnix. (db does not show KHEV as KHYM relay)

0121, 97.3 sports talk in English, Es fades, soon gone, not // OK on
1390 or 640. No such station in AZ. Could be 50 kW KWFN San Diego CA,
also with several low-power co-channel relays in the area, including
one for Dan Sheedy

0135, 92.3, ``KTAR News`` and fade-out as opening is ending? 1340 km =
833 stmi. Same bearing as Mexicali heard earlier

0135, 91.9, music in English, seems like Es strength rather than KS
fringe but could be 48 kW KBDD, Winfield (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

hours later not even this, poor conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, June 12 at 0158, RHC English S9+20/30 but suptorted as
very often it be; // 6145 is sufficient at S9+20. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

music, sounds like Willie Nelson; continuous hard rock tunes then;

Willie Nelson at 0034 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

whereupon I entered a reception report on their form:

``Enid OK, reception only. June 11 at 1750-1800 UT, deep fades out and
back so it took that long to copy it all, I think: series of dits and
WA4FC/B, another series of dits and FM17 alternating. Only one heard
on 10m tho I did not search deeply; not much on phone either except
WZ4L Nashville TN on 28410-USB. A QSL would be nice, e or p, but
apparently not for reception reports here?``

I then got a reply from KD4BPZ asking for my address to QSL; tnx

UNIDENTIFIED. 9375-9410 approx., wandering local noiseblob at 360-kHz

** CHINA [non]. Re my unlisted 9300 log, from a huge exhaustive
all-band dekaday survey by Wolfgang Bueschel of ChiCom jamming:
``9299.959 0000-2359 TWN SOH Xi Wang Zhi Shen. Chinese Miaoli, S=9 at
00.40 UT on June 10.`` so it was SOH without jamming when he heard it
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Re my previous report about RHC, James Branum, OK, replies:

``Glenn, I think you are speaking about Elena Valverde. With regards
to English fluency, I have met Irma (from the Mailbag show) on my two
visits to RHC and can say she is extremely fluent in English. I hope
to someday meet the other on-air staff, but so far have only met her.

As to the issue of censorship... That is not how it works in Cuban
state media today. It is much more understated with an emphasis on
staying on message, presenting Cuba in a positive light, etc. This
approach is not far removed from what most state and corporate
broadcasters do. James Branum, KG5JST and RHC fan`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, June 11 at 0052, RHC S9+5 in Spanish and extremely
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

5040, June 11 at 0056, RHC in French is also extremely distorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND [non]. 9955, UT Thu June 11 at 0100, new WRMI relay of
RNZ as per updated sked at 0100-0130, with `Korero Pacifica`, as on
WRN to North America at this hour, about topic-V of course; but it`s
only 15 minutes followed by Vatican on WRN sked. So presumably not
live // 13840 RNZI direct, unchecked, with different Pacifican
programming scheduled for full hour. Heavy jamming before 0100 vs
Alameda Bible Fellowship in English now slowly abates. But what is the
point of onsending this to South America one day a week? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring: confirmed Wed June 10 from
2100:20 on WBCQ 7490v, JBA, unfortunately much worse than 24 hours
ago.

Also confirmed UT Thu June 11 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S3-S7 VP in noise
here, good at UTwente SDR.

** U S A. 6100-6130, June 11 at 0044, WWCR-1 besides that awful squeal
is spewing hash out across his range (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Local wandering scratch-noise blobs, June 11 0038-0048
include: approx. 6900-6935, 9020-9080, 9360-9430, 9720-9800; and
surely more splotches between 7 and 9 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
