Hauser
** CANADA. 266-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0722 UT, dash and XD, 32-watt NDB at
Edmonton, Alberta. 2257 km = 1403 miles, or 43.8 miles per watt.

I used to get occasionally high-power Edmonton CFRN-TV, NTSC analog
channel 3, always a treat so close to the sporadic-E single-hop max.
Sesquidecades ago I could not have imagined that years later, CFRN
would abandon analog and channel 3 for DTV on unskippable ch 12.
However, per http://www.w9wi.com/web/tv-states/AB.html
it does now have 12 relays/translators around the province from very
low to medium power, including one each on ch 2, 3, 4.

335-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0730 UT, dash and YLD, 1000-watt NDB at
Chapleau, Ontario. Fell asleep before reaching top of band. Lotsa sigs
but lightning crashes from storm front across central Gulf of Mexico
difficultized copy. A few more: USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Feb 20 at 0215 UT marine weather in French by
roboyl is VP S8-S9 about the same as noise level; haven`t had decent
copy of these in weeks due to NL and/or propagation. DXinfocentre.com
shows the broadcast as this hour would have started at 0140 from VAR-9
Yarmouth NS with 1200 watts but apparently originating in (Halifax).

2598-USB at 0215 is even weaker JBA. That would be from 0207 UT,
VOJ-6, 400 watts from Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland, SW corner of the
Rock, where I once entered NL off the ferry from Sydney (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 6660-RCUSB, Feb 20 at 0255, CHU second harmonic presumed.
Harold Frodge in MARE has reported this a number of times and I`ve
been intending to dig deeper for it. At first only voice/SSB QRM and
strong uteblaaps, and no reduced carrier even detected, but briefly
hear some CHUish chirpips; still uncopied at top of minute beep nor
preceding voice announcement (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13630 & 13769, Feb 19 at 1457, today`s spurblobs from
13700-AM are quite weak but marked by their F# tones, appox. 69-70 kHz
above and below. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5910, Feb 20 at 0315, CRI relay is S9+55! of dead air ---
almost, a bit of mod peak trying to break thru. Wiggle that patchcord!
Despite the silence, stepping across the bandwidth with BFO encounters
lots of ``sub-carriers`` especially in the 5900-5905 and 5915-5920
ranges. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4030-AM, Feb 20 at 0257 pirate music VP S8-S9,
occasional running-H2O QRM; no TOH break but song lyrix are ``Smoky
Mountain Rain``; later peaking to S9+20; 0320 still going at that
level, and past 0332. Last check 0335 just in time to hear YL with
e-mail address including Ballsmacker. Many more logs here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78258.0.html
between 0158 and 0335. KMD3HR in central Florida explains:
``03:00 Smokey Mountain Rain Amateur Radio Operator Ronnie Milsap
WB4KCG Blind Country Music prodigy! Mandrells as Backup singers``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Feb 20 at 0228, pirate music, poor S5-S6;
0230 YL? DJ mentions ``another 45 minutes``, ``This is the --??--
family coming at you on the 4th of July`` and song ``Rollin` on the
River``; 0230 stops and stays off for next few minutes. Many more unID
logs here altho a couple heard ``Outhouse Radio``:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78255.0.html
But then Outhouse Radio itself replies, ``NOPE, wasn`t me``. From as
early as 0121 there were lots of long pauses, but no one else reports
it after 0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 257-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0717 UT, FWC, 25-watt NDB at
Fairfield - Wayne County, Illinois, mixing with something even weaker;
tuned to 255-USB still in absence of SW, Stillwater OK.

263-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0720 UT, CVM, 25-watt NDB at Alton - CiVic
Memorial, Illinois.

305-MCW kHz, Feb 19 at 0727 UT, RO, 150-watt NDB at Roswell, New
Mexico. I was tuned to 303-USB. Lotsa sigs but lightning crashes from
storm front across central Gulf of Mexico difficultized copy. A few
more: CANADA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3455-USB, Feb 20 at 0309, ATC with JBA United flight citing
VHF frequencies, also at least twice, ``primary 5598, 3016 secondary``
-- so does that make this 3455 tertiary? New York Radio, testing a
selcall. EiBi confirms NYR is here, but also San Francisco operating
remote transmitters in Hawaii and Guam for Central and Western Pacific
routes, all available 24 hours; and something from Shannon too on
3455. NYR site is bg-Barnegat, NJ 39N45-74W23'30". Barnegat is quite a
ways from NYC in southern NJ, between the Garden State Parkway and
Long Beach barrier island, site of MW-DX peditions; and about 20 miles
from Tuckerton, another erstwhile utesite (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7290.15-AM, Feb 20 at 0321, W4SVA courteously asks at least
twice, ``is the frequency in use?`` Evidently not, except for him now:
``W4SVA USA flag USA, William C Props, Mount Solon, VA 22843. I enjoy
repairing and operating vintage tube type boatanchor equipment. You'll
find me mostly on CW and AM,`` says his qrz.com page illustrating some
of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9550, Feb 19 at 0637, VOA news is VP S3-S5; via SÃO
TOMÉ E PRÍNCIPE this hour; now I know why I had not noticed it before
the VG signal last night at this time: must have been an anomaly
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (6159.9v), UT Sat Feb 20 at 0100, webcast of WBCQ with
`AAAWWW` --- as expected starts right off lamenting demise of beloved
Rush --- I can`t continue listening but make spotchex every 10 or 15
minutes, noting some of what John Carver mentions more completely:

``Tonight's AAWWW --- Program started on time on 7490 and 6160. Allan
and Angela drinking in a chilly Fla. Opening talk about the death of
Roach Limbaugh and how he saved talk radio. Then he gave Angela a
rundown on the history of talk radio. Allan champions free speech
radio and was opposed to the fairness doctrine and credits Limbaugh
with the demise of the fairness doctrine and responsible for free
speech radio. He also stated that at some point WBCQ would air the
interview that Limbaugh conducted with Donald Trump. Angela states
that she wishes WBCQ could have broadcasted the Limbaugh program. She
also manages a few jabs at Biden and champions Trump.

Allan announces that they are adding a new segment to the show every
week called Angela's Angle. Her first talk is about free speech and
the lack of it in this country. She also states that this country was
born on the bible and the gun. Then she moves to the sense of
entitlement that the youth of this country seem to be infected with.
She also touches on racism and implies that it is the battle cry of
the left. Her segment was announced as a five or ten minute commentary
but it takes up a good portion of the program.

Reading of emails at 0153 which turns out to mostly be a Roach fest.
Program ended at 0200 without a closing prayer. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4230.0-CW, Feb 20 at 0304, random pips, not Morse code,
some long irregular strings and pauses. FAIK could be somethin`
blowin` in the wind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Correxion: first frequency in this report 13464 was typo;
should have read 13564, fixed:
13564, 13632, 13768, 13836 approx., Feb 12 at 1509, extremely
distorted spurblobs out of 13700-AM at ~68 kHz intervals, as always at
this time, destroying `Sonido Cubano` music show. 15140 fundamental is
much less distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 18 at 0642, RHC English is OFF this frequency but
remains on 6060, 6000, 5040 VG and maybe JBA 9700. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13276-trace, 13345-trace, 13425, 13489, 13561, 13629; 13771,
13842, 13911, 13983, 14057-trace, 14125-trace, Feb 18 from 1456,
extremely distorted spurblobs out of 13700-AM transmitter. Not in the
order tuned and peaks may have shifted slightly over the few minutes.
They are very amorphous, the extreme ones only traceable by their F#
tones; even the strongest, closest ones cannot be pinned down to the
kHz, but intervals for starters are roughly 71 kHz. The two outer
fringers do work out nicely to about 6 x 70.66 to 70.83 kHz.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6180, Feb 19 at 0241, S9/+10 open carrier/dead air on CRI
relay and no ZY audible under, nor any mod at all from relay unlike
last time.

5910, Feb 19 at 0303, exactly same S9+10 dead air from successor CRI
relay frequency. No sig detectable on x2 = 11820, but not surprising
considering RHC fundamentals 11670 & 11850 achieve no more than JBA
carriers. However at 0433, 5910 now good but somewhat undermodulated
during Yue song. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4747.5 & 4782.5 kHz approx., Feb 19 at 0248, matching JBA
extremely distorted music spurblobs, minus/plus ~17.5 kHz out of //
4765 Radio Progreso. Both QRMing CODAR, more of that on the lower
side. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Feb 18 at 1530, weak signal presumed Dengê
Welat via FRANCE, and even weaker on 11540 presumed the Turkish jammer
which DW has for the moment escaped. Last time I checked, they were
both on 11540, nothing on 11530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME. 9550, Feb 18 at 0636, VOA news magazine in English is VG
S8-S9, // weaker 6080+ and both listed same site at 06-07. Strange I
had not noticed 9550 before, sked for entire B20 season, 100 kW at 124
degrees, while 6080 is 100 kW at azimuth 0. Apparently in HFCC that
means due north rather than non-direxional, altho the ND term is not
used there, while it is in full Aoki/NDXC for some other entries.
Anyhow 9550 is closer to off-the-back to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

WOR 2074 confirmed, UT Fri Feb 18 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG S9+30;
7780 VG S6-S9 to Maine SDR, S7-S9 but noisy to UTwente SDR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 19 at
0250-0255: 531(2), 684(2), 693, 747, 774, 819*, 846*, 855, 882(2),
891, 909, 999(2), 1089, 1125, 1152, 1215 kHz. Not in the order tuned.
Notably missing, 621 usual presumed Canary Islands.

*819 unusual to hear anything; in Europe only 100 watts in Holland and
1 kW in Trieste, but there`s 300 kW in Egypt, 10/30/60 kW in
Mauritius/Sudan/Iran, all per WRTH 2021 page 528.

*846 notably present now, despite as I frequently outpoint, in Europe
only low-powers, and it`s too early for Kiritimati. 846 possibly 20 kW
from Sa`udi or UAE or 50 kW from Iran. Not a single African listed
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [and non]. 5870-5875-5880-DRM, Feb 17 at 2355, the TDF test
is S8, SNR ~10 dB, 8.08 kbps --- but silent, no RFI audio out of Bonaire SDR,
and goes off at scheduled 2400* sharp. Same rx does get DRM music out of
Brasília 11905-11910-11915, SNR 16, 10.60 kbps. Ivo Ivanov says the
2330-2400 test on 5875 is moving to 9885 as from Feb 21, and most of
the others have changed or shall (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. Lots of NDBs, among many others skipped past this
time, Feb 17 between 0737 and 0757 UT, not in order logged but
rearranged by frequency; see also USA for some more at same session:

218-MCW, Feb 17 at 0757 UT, dash and RL, 980-watt NDB at Red Lake,
Ontario

257-MCW, Feb 17 at 0755 UT, dash and XE, 100-watt NDB at Saskatoon,
Saskatchewan; mixing with JYR, 25 watts in York, Nebraska

269-MCW, Feb 17 at 0753 UT, dash and UDE, 50-watt NDB at Delta,
Manitoba

274-MCW, Feb 17 at 0751 UT, dash and YPM, 25-watt NDB at Pikangikum,
Ontario, ``back on``. 1741 km = 1082 stmi, or 43.28 miles per watt

287-MCW, Feb 17 at 0749 UT, dash and ZWG, 50-watt NDB at Winnipeg /
Stoney, Manitoba. Much rarer than plain old WG on 248 with 20x power

328-MCW, Feb 17 at 0745 UT, dash and YTL, 1000-watt NDB from Big Trout
Lake, Ontario.

344-MCW, Feb 17 at 0740, dash and YC, 100-watt NDB from Calgary,
Alberta, ``to be decommissioned 2021-02-25`` per dxinfocentre.com;
mixing with TKH, see USA.

376-MCW, Feb 17 at 0737 UT, dash and YAG is JBA, 40 watt NDB from Fort
Frances, Ont. 1407 km = 874 stmi or 21.85 miles per watt (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4747 & 4783 approx., Feb 17 at 0241, ratchety spurblobs out
of 4765 R. Progreso, extremely distorted // music, matching plus/minus
18 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6180, Feb 17 at 0245, CRI relay is S9+20/30, but extremely
sup-torted, unreadable. Can`t tell if Brasil is underneath.

5910, Feb 17 at 0322, next CRI relay frequency is the same, implying
same defective transmitter, S9+30/40.

11820, Feb 17 at 0322, second harmonic of 5910 is detectable, S7-S8
but there is so little modulation it seems dead; vs HNL of S6-S7.

Comparing to the RHC Spanish frequencies in next few minutes:
11850, S9+20, suptorted but readable
11670, S9+10/20, slightly distorted
9650, S9+10, less modulation than 11670
9535, S8-S9
6060, S9+30/40, // 5040
5040, S9+20/30
And in English: 9700, S9/+10, // 6000
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13560, JBA S4-S5 blob vs pt 15 pulser; 13631, 13769, 13840
JBA, spurs out of 13700-AM RHC at approx. 69-70 kHz intervals, Feb 17
at 1540. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. At 1653 UT Feb 17 I write to Brad Ferguson, KUCO GM:

``Subject: WCPE all the time --- Hi Brad, Missing KUCO own programming
for third? day now. Wonder if again loss of STL? Staff can`t make it
to studio? Hope everyone`s OK, and can be back to normal soon.
Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` -- He replies:

``Nobody in the studio, Glenn. I hope by Friday there will be enough
clearing of the roads to get in. Also, glad you’re hearing us at all
since we are at 5 kW ERP and have been for more than a week.
Certainly glad we have CPE to fall back on! Brad``

Rated power is 100 kW, which even so is not enough to assure
overcoming KHCC in Kansas; but no signal from there lately, no
subfreezing tropo even if at nominal (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 365-MCW kHz, Feb 17 at 0739 UT, NDB HQG which is 25 watts
from HuGoton, SW corner of Kansas; I was tuned to 362-USB. Rarely
heard tho not that far, 324 km = 201 stmi, or 8.04 miles per watt

344-MCW kHz, Feb 17 at 0740 UT, ND beacon TKH, which is 25 watts from
Tallulah, Louisiana; also heard tuned to 342-USB. Mixing with YC but
not for much longer: see CANADA

329-MCW kHz, Feb 17 0743 UT, NDB PMV, 25 watts at Plattsmouth,
Nebraska, where the Platte River tributaries into the Missouri near
Offutt AFB south of Omaha. See also CANADA [and non] for many more at
same session (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15810, Feb 17 at 1544, JBA carrier where normally is
nothing, equal to the 15825 WWCR JBA carrier; therefore, assume WTWW-3
has been rarely activated.

At 1548 I find WTWW-2 night frequency 5085 definitely on air with rock
music, DJ ID, S9+10 and distorted, but WTWW-1 is not on 5830. So is
15810 // 5085? At first seems so with similar music, but 1552, 5085 is
announcing, 15810 is not.

I soon switch to remotes which should get 15810 better at greater than
1-megameter skip distance, but nothing at first to Maine or Holland.
No sporadic-E over N America today.

At 1622 here, 15810 still JBA carrier; but at 1637, UTwente pulls JBA
jazz at 15810.001 and 1638 definite ID at S6-S8, ad something about
health; is 5085 off now? At 1644 Ted is explaining that 15810 is on at
full power and something about a 5085 problem? At 1655 I try KiwiSDR
in Maine, getting 15810 at only S3-S4, better to UTwente at S7 to S8.
Maine gets JBA carrier S3 on 5085. At 1700 an anti-commercial by Ted
about eight wifi ``radios`` they have which will soon be dead. ``Never
buy a Grace(???) product for the rest of your life!`` Not sure of the
brand, but some other one has been widely publicized about to crash
with no further software updates. Which one is that?

I leave 15810 UTwente on in the background but soon after 1700 it`s
nothing but noise --- off or fadeout? At 1644 UT I had notified the
WOR iog about 15810, but no other reports of it received in the next
sesquihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6200, circa 0100 UT Feb 17, routine check for ROCV via
