Hauser
** CANADA. 258 MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0634 UT, dash and ZSJ, 1000-watt ND
beacon at Sandy Lake, Ont. Occasionally heard; the regulars, also
hefty 1 kW, I seldom bother to relog: 248, WG WinnipeG; and 332, QT
Thunder Bay, mixing with IC wIChita KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 18 at 2205, R. Cairo S9 but just barely
distorted modulated with hum, into Spain SDR. Something`s always
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Oct 18 at 0627, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati. Gary Pence advised me earlier it was on tonight with a
screenshot from the Oahu SDR of a tiny trace on 846 already at 0412
UT. Now, I also have neighboring 9/kHz JBA carriers on 837 and two
beating on 855, likely Canarias/Spain; As for Oct 17, 16: ``Hi Glenn -
Yes, 846 was heard Oct 17 (Monday), from 0603+ UT. Clearly was silent
yesterday (Sunday). Ron (California)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 18 at 0635, no signal direct from VON. Also no
signal at 1740 into Spain SDR while Canary SDR is too busy, nor the
latter when it connects after 1800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.003, Oct 18 at 2207, VOT is on in English, S9+50 into
UTwente, undermodulated but otherwise sufficient. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT
Tuesday October 18 at 0030 on WRMI 9395: instead, after an ID,
switched to SMTV! Which per skedgrid during this hour is supposed to
be on 5800, but something else not // there; and normally always QSYs
at hourtop not bottom. Jeff White explains that the automation
sometimes goes haywire changing System inputs when it`s not supposed
to, so this was a mistake and hopefully will not rehappen. Anyhow, was
S9/+20, nor was WOR to be found on any other active WRMI frequency.

** U S A. WRMI update on FB circa 21 UT Oct 18: ``Another transmitter
and frequency is back on the air as of 1940 UTC today. We are
replacing 21525 with the new frequency of 17790 kHz. The programming
of the Radio Africa Network will be airing on this frequency daily
from 1500-2100 UT. We are using a different azimuth of 160 degrees for
this one, due to the damaged 87-degree antennas that were used before.
Tomorrow we will attempt to get another frequency on the air. We still
have 5850, 7570 and 7780 kHz to go. Thanks very much for the
tremendous listener support we have received.`` -- 17790 not checked
here yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1140 kHz, Oct 18 at 0620 UT, open carrier again, not as
obvious as last night, but suppressing `C2CAM` from presumed WRVA VA,
altho one other 1140 is on that, Palm Springs CA, never heard. This
time I do DF the OC on the DX-398 and indeed it is E/W, so KLTK, 5 kW
ND, Centerton AR daytimer is even more likely source. On the R75 with
E/W longwire, the OC is more prominent. Nulling it on DX-398, weak
Spanish, unsure if XEMR. BTW, KLTK is also Spanish if ever modulated.
Also noted the OC much earlier in evening, so KLTK presumably does not
turn off carrier at LSS. I want to check the official FCC SS/SR times
for KLTK, but AM Query errors out when trying to get to
https://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/amq?list=0&facid=33073
Are others having this problem?

The first page before that shows KLTK as licensed to La Zeta 957 Inc.;
but NRC AM Log shows it`s // K260CS, 99.9, ``Radio Las Américas
1140``. That implies some relation to 1120, KETU Catoosa/Tulsa OK,
which FCC has licensed to Radio Las Americas Arkansas, LLC; but NRC AM
Log for KETU says it`s ``La Que-Tu, 1120, La Diferente`` -- I also
have had that daytimer sometimes modulating at night, QRMing KMOX.
Judging from commercials, Las Américas is at root a grandiose grocery
store (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Oct 17 at 0402, R. Rebelde is off. 5040 is in
undermodulated Spanish with big hum, // better 11760 so presumably RHC
programming. However, at 0639, 5040 music is the only Cuban signal on
5 or 6 MHz, but 11760 is still on //. 11760 normally is off by 03* per
Aoki, 02* per EiBi. Due to recent mixups, without an ID, one cannot
assume programming now is not Rebelde instead. Ron Howard reports
later: ``Oct 16 - I found 5025 was silent from 0823+ UT (past 1035+),
but Radio Rebelde was in fact still being heard on 5040,
past 1035+``. Still no 5025 signal here at 2311 check Oct 17 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Oct 17 at 0635, no JBA carrier direct from R.
Kiribati, this Monday. But without remote chex, cannot be positive
whether it`s on the air or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7255-, Oct 17 at 0637, no signal direct from VON.
Also no signal into Spain or Canary SDRs at 1855; hit at 1857 by
ChiCom big open carrier, 1900 CRI Tuerkiyeish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Oct 17 at 2310, pirate music VP S6/7. Many
reports here as RFW > Radio Free Whatever:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,103399.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: Confirmed Sunday
October 16 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, S9/+20
with a SAH and lite musical underference into nearby Noale SDR. If not
a 500 or 20-watt UK station, per WRTH 22, Tanzania would not be on at
this hour and when on would only be CRI relay! but 50 kW Iran in Azeri
runs to 2030*; if not a spoiler from China. WRTH 22 on page 544, MW
frequency lists, shows 200, 600 and 500 kW stations on 1323 and a
bunch of 10 kW. Sorting everything out is quite a task, likewise at
PAL, but the Big Three CRI relays on 1323 are on page 56 (of 408),
including one for Russian from East Turkistan most likely to be a
problem in Europe, but not on the air 1500*-*1100. Once again, we
would be much better off on 918 instead of 1323 as 918 is a virtually
clear frequency.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 17 at 0030 on WRMI 5950, S9+28 into
Athens GA SDR; original 7780 still not restored.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 17 at 0300 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160
minus 64 Hz = 6159.936, S9 into Missouri remote. JL axually finished
in time! Gotta go. Next:

** U S A. 5010, Oct 17 at 0402 this WRMI is S7/S9 of dead air direct.
At 0638, 5010, 5800, 5950 all TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 17 at 0646, R. Vanuatu JBA on first harmonic =
fundamental; intermittent QRM from AM carrier, presumably spoiler ham
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1140, Oct 17 at 0658 UT, steady big S9+10 open carrier
dominates, vs something weaker making fast SAH, continues past hourtop
0700+. More of a signal than we get from our nearest in daytime, 1 kW
daytimer KRMP OKC. Too late for me to switch from the E/W longwire on
R75 to the DX-398 where I might have DFed it. No modulator really owns
1140 here at night: is 50 kW XEMR Monterrey NL, still active, 24h?
Supposedly direxional SW at night per 2013y NRC Pattern Book, but not
mentioned as direxional in current IRCA Mexican Log -- the word
appears only about 15 times in entire list, some noted as not
directional despite official info. WRVA VA pattern unfavorable tho has
been heard. KXRB Sioux Falls SD U2 10/5 kW but only if on ND day
pattern rather than NNW direxional at night. Second-closest, KLTK in
NW Arkansas might do it, 5 kW ND daytimer. Checking circa 1925 UT,
KRMP is weak but with a fast SAH, likely KLTK if not TX or MO. Must
check again late night and DF if possible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Oct 16 at 0650, RHC English with jazz, S9+10/20 but
undermodulated with hum, only frequency left unless a JBA carrier on
6165 under local birdie be it; nothing else is scheduled. 6060 gone
already at 0653. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Oct 16 at 0653, music in Spanish so is this RHC
Spanish? unseems // 6060 English but which has just vanished. By 0720,
5040 with classic rock songs in English, so is this now RHC English?
NO, at 0725 ID in passing, ``Rebelde en la mañana``! Meanwhile, the
proper Reb frequency 5025 has been off. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Sunday Oct 16 at 1430, RHC still on but unusually weak
compared to // 15140, but which at 1458 at S9 the latter is JBM. By
1503, 15140 is S9+10 and suptorted with weekly Esperanto, louder than
// 11760, S9+10, also suptorted with hum, plus another audio
undermixing, probably mainstream Spanish. 13700 stays on at 1504 with
unscheduled Esperanto, and still not off at 1518, now S9 into Maryland
SDR. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 15205.011, Oct 16 at 1432, gospel huxter in English with
flutter, slightly off-frequency, gone at 1457 recheck, what? Panam`s
Frank & Ernest, what luck, on air only a quarter-hour per week, Sun
1430-1445 per EiBi & Aoki, via Nauen toward S Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** JAPAN. 11825, Oct 16 at 0656, Japanese about Tokyo, S4/S6, instead
of 11815 with a presumed weak Brasil. Yes, NHK A22 scheduled 11825 at
0655-0800; 11815 at 0955-1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 16 at 0648, no signal direct from VON. At 1721
& 1847, no signal into Canary SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: new skedgrid of
WRMI dated Oct 15 shows no changes in WOR times, including imaginary
Saturday 1930 on 15770. Aside from post-Ian temp changes, there could
also be unknown other times which are not imaginary. If you happen to

** U S A. 7730, Oct 16 at 0646, WRMI-1, best yet of this since
reactivation, S6/S8 direct but dead air or maybe just barely
modulated. I wonder what its true power and azimuth, antenna type be
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, Oct 16 at 0652, surprised this WRMI-14 is still on,
S9+10 now with TOM, BS with a caller mentioning listening on 5085 -
which would have been WTWW many years ago. But WRMI skedgrid has now
been updated October 15 showing 5010 at 22-14 daily + TOMBS to 16
Saturdays. 5800 is now off, as sked 22-04 only. 5850 still not
restored at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 15770, Oct 16 at 0655, JBA carrier, so along with
15230 JBA carrier, the OSOBs and SSOBs. Jeff said 15770 would be
running 24 hours; but can hardly expect it to propagate in the
nightmiddle. Yes, new sked shows WRMI-10 on 15770 for 24 hours, partly
// 7730, both allegedly on 44 degrees toward Europe. So have one or
two such antennas been restored despite initial conclusion it was
irreparable? 15230 at this hour presumably CRI Xianyang site, not RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Oct 16 at 0648, S6/S8 of ``island music`` from RV.
Tuning to 11835 at 0659.4 it`s just come on, S6/S8 of music; and 7890
JBA carrier, the harmonix of 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Oct 15 at 2118, dead air from this RHC at S9+15/25 or

Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. Here`s why I was not hearing 11905 at 0030:

``Found this info on facebook: one transmitter of SLBC is noted off

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
October 15 at 1615 the 1600 on WRN N America webcast. Missed checking
the 1930 airing, likewise circa on WA0RCR, 1860 AM. Did anyone hear
it? Also missed reconfirming WOR is still no airing at that time on
WRMI 15770, which is now back on the air. Fortunately? I got a QSL
request out of the blue from a Netherlander with a clip at that time
of a gospel huxter, who he thought was WOR, as on the sked!
Another WRN NAm webcast confirmed at 0130 UT Sunday October 16.

At 0030 UT Sun Oct 16, 7780 is still silent when WOR is scheduled.
Just in case, I check all active WRMI frequencies, but noWOR. Of
course that`s amid the trihour of TRSW on 5950 UT Sundays, but when
WOR has been newly scheduled UT Mondays.

Also confirmed UT Sunday October 16 from 0324 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO,
S9+20 into nearby SDR, but with huge storm noise; lightning is not
right over St Louis area, but nearest in SE Kansas, N Arkansas, across
central OK to NM and AZ. This caused our NBC station, KFOR, to blow
away almost all of SNL except for the opening skit and goodbye!

Re Purple Power on World of Radio #2160: ``Thanks for the tip for
cleaning the stickiness from the surface of Eton radios. I have a few
of them and, with the exception of the Satellit 750, the rest of them
all have that problem. One year I left my G8 in Florida over the
summer. When I got back here it felt like it had been dipped in maple
syrup. I'll be going out tomorrow to look for Purple Power. Best
Regards & 73s, Doug Brown, Ont.``

I have no personal familiarity with, just quoting someone. Before
purchase, I recommend googling and noting the caveats about it. Seems
you`ve got to purchase at least a gallon of it, $ 7 at Walmart. That
would clean off an awful lot of Etóns. Maybe you can find some other
stuff needing degreasing. Glenn --- Next:

** U S A. WRMI update from their FB circa 0000 UT October 16:
``We have extended the schedule on 15770 kHz to 24 hours per day until
further notice. Today our Facility Manager Pat Travers repaired more
transmission lines, and we might have 21525 kHz back on the air on
Monday if all goes well. We will then continue to work on 7570, 5850
and 7780 kHz, as well as improving 7730 kHz. Thanks for all of your
encouraging messages and support`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. Intrigued by the motto? still atop the KBDT 1160 website,
``Snot Rocket Cock Socket Hot Pocket`` -- is it slightly naughty? I
try a broad Google search on that, but except for a few spurious, get
nothing but scads of hits back to saigondallasradio.com -- nothing DX
related, not even my own logs which have been on the web for several
days now.

Among all those useless hits, I do see that R. Saigon Dallas used to
pertain to 1600 kHz, i.e., KRVA, which would overcome OK reception of
KUSHing around sunset. But the current KBDT website shows nothing
about 1600 or KRVA. It does say in English that new home is on 1160. I
try a couple of Dallas-area SDRs at 2346 UT October 15: one of them
gets nothing but noise on both frequencies, the other weak SE Asian
songs on 1600, not 1160.

At 0000 UT August 16 I listen direct and do not hear anything Asian on
either frequency. What does the very slow-loading FCC AM Query say?
KRVA 1600 owned by LRAD Media LLC, but it errors out beyond that.
Radio-locator agrees about KRVA, while KBDT is licensed to Dallas
Broadcasting, LLC. But FCC finally attributes KBDT to Pacific Star
Media LLC. I was wanting to check the official FCC SS/SR times for
both, which supposedly cut to much lower and direxional power at
night. At least for KBDT: October, 0000/1230 UT; November, 2330/1300
UT. Could be 15 minutes difference at KRVA site.

As for the motto, maybe a joke of their website designer? No credit
for any on homepage. Perhaps someone in The Metroplex DFW market can
explain more, such as what has become of 1600? Here`s a thread about
it; finally someone thought 1600 may have become S Asian:

UNIDENTIFIED. 26200-26380 approx., Oct 15 at 2125, CODAR swirshing,
unusual? to hear on 11m, but sporadic E provides it. Other than
visiting one on a coast, is there any way to locate these by frequency
range, pulse rates, waterfall patterns, hours, or whatever? Presumably
they are licensed by government, maybe even with callsigns (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Oct 15 at 1439 tune-in via best
Argentine SDR, nothing yet from LRA36; finally cuts on during music at
*1508.7, S4/S9 peaks but never overcoming background noise level for
which a full carrier would be helpful. 1513 standard canned s/on ``a
partir de este momento...``; multilingual about Spanish only; ``Ciclo
Radial 2022, Esperanza Audaz``, staff names, ``Nacional, La Radio
Pública``; 1514.6 themesong; 1518.3 recitation, another song; 1523.6
ID with frequencies, ``N,LRP``; 1524 YLs ``live`` with programa #25,
same as heard on Wed Oct 12; 1530 phones and other contact info. Says
there is a repeat on Fridays, 16 horas -- not sure if that`s start or
end time but = 13 UT, earlier than I would ever tune for it. BTW, I
did monitor after 15 UT this Thursday when there was allegedly a
special station anniversary broadcast - but, nothing heard. 1532 song
but dumps off air already at 1535* for a total of only 23+ minutes
achieved today. Remote times out at 1539, and still nothing at another
check before 1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, Oct 15 at 0633, RHC English again on wrong band, S9+10
but overmodulated/distorted, YL boringly reading propaganda. This did
not happen the nights before, as it had on Oct 11. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7225 LSB, Oct 15 at 0706, surprised to hear ZL1XR
repeatedly calling CQ 40, finally contacts unheard VK3SMW, on a legal
frequency? ZL did not specify a QSX. Except in W Hemisphere, below
7200 is ham, above 7200 is for broadcasting, like RNZI on 7245 but not
on yet. Or, like on 30m where Oz hams have special permission to
operate phone, do NZ hams have special permission to operate in this
broadcast band??? Bare-bones in QRZ.com: ``ZL1XR New Zealand flag New
Zealand, Roger Smith, Auckland, New Zealand`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255 minus 67 Hz = 7254.933, Oct 15 at 1730, VON is on in
English, S9/+15 into Canary SDR but virtually unreadable, marred by
heavy lightning crashes; Blitzortung shows only small storm areas in
Western Sahara and Western Sahara [non] = northern Morocco. The really
heavy storms are further in SE Spain, and moreso eastern Mediterranean
between Crete and Cyprus. By 1735, VON is gone leaving only the
lightning and presumed trace of Tibet close to on-frequency. At 1739,
VON and its squeal are back on. 1746 gone again. 1800 back on with
squeal, minus 67-69 Hz = 7254.932v. And so it goes: Something`s always
abysmal at Abuja (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2160 monitoring: did not show at
former time of 0130 UT Sat on WRMI 9395 nor any other active

** U S A. Previous WRMI update direct from Jeff said 7730 would be
among the frequencies still to be reactivated. That should have read
7780. However whenever we check, 7730 is JBA on low power so really of
no use. The FB version, as of about 22 UT Oct 14:

``WRMI Radio Miami International 18h · HELLO EUROPE! - 15770 kHz is
back on the air, finally, after Hurricane Ian damaged the transmission
lines. The regular schedule is 1100-0000 UTC daily, but we might
extend the schedule somewhat in the coming days. Our next targets are
21525, 5850, 7570 and 7780 kHz. We hope that some of these will be
back on the air next week. So stay tuned!``

15770, Oct 15 at 1623 tune-in via Maryland remote, dead air, then a
bit of BSing, dead air, partial WRMI IS and BBB ID, back to BSing,
i.e. other voices, presumably live Sabbath service at TOM; 1625 cut to
ME music fill! Quite a mess. But it`s a good S9/+10 signal. How about
into target Europe? Only noisy S7/S9 at UTwente, 1629 cut to ``That`ll
be the day that I die`` tune. And more fill music 1630+. Yet the
skedgrid shows SMTV on 15770 at 14-19. By 1727 recheck, 15770 is on
SMTV. At 1740, music and SFX, like soundtrack to a WB cartoon of
yesterday but with some Chinese dialog, and English, 1744 outro as a
skit with actors protected during COVID, about the S.M.

Skedgrid still shows System B on 15770 instead of 9955 at 19-20 only,
including WOR Saturday at 1930, despite having deleted us from there
months ago. So we continue without any WRMI broadcast toward Europe
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Oct 15 at 0705, presumed Bislama talk is JBA on 2 x
3945 R. Vanuatu; at 0730 check, also on 3 x 3945 = 11835, S6/S8 in BB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
