** CHINA. CNR1 jammer search, Sept 25 at 1445-1447: none higher than
11460 & 11170 JBA carriers, the latter with flutter; and 9155, S2-S3
trace of Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 26 at 0100 quick check via Bonaire TWR SDR,
still no signal of anonymous mystery missionary station, now gone for
a week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 349-MCW kHz, Sept 25 at 0629 UT, ND beacon GW; I`m tuned to
348-USB yet there is still QRM from nearby 350 RG in OKC. No dash, so
not Canadian like the GW I recently logged on 371; and there is
another USonian GW on 227. 349 is in Greenwood - Teoc, Mississippi, 25

353-MCW kHz, Sept 25 at 0630, mixture of ND beacons IN and LI; I have
to listen a while until they are not overlapping as periods are
slightly different. Classaxe.com shows 6.03 seconds for ``Raize`` IN,
and 6.2 seconds for ``Lasky`` LI. IN is 100 watts from International
Falls, Minnesota of renown as often the coldest place in the
Conterminous - after all it`s right next to Fort Frances, Canada; and
LI is 400 watts from Little Rock, Arkansas.

Strangely enough among the I.F. attraxions there is no significant
waterfall, but there is lake flowing into a river thanks to a dam
enabling some hydro power for paper mills (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Sept 25 at 1448, HIFER beacon with IDs only, K6FRC
JBA; another notable occasion when its asserted 1.8 milliwatts from
Patterson, California make it, as at no other daypart (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. Michael Pack, USAGM refuses supboena to testify; PBS
Newshour reports

Today Sept 24 was the day when Trump`s man heading the USAGM, Michael
Pack, was scheduled to testify before congress, but he ignored the
subpoena! Will he be held in contempt? Charlie Harlich received a
notice from CSPAN about the hearing this morning, but it did not
appear at the time mentioned, nor can we find it anywhere on their
extremely flexible schedule. Perhaps it will become available in their

Meanwhile, PBS Newshour aired a 7:38 segment about this during the
third quarter of the show today; likewise I can`t find it yet at the
PBS website, but surely it will show. Searching on USAGM, or VOA, or
Pack, or Jamie Fry, one of the interviewees, ex-RFE/RL president,
should find it. This deals with the scandals in general, such as
refusing to renew visas, as two VOA Indonesian reporters are seen
being deported. Anyhow I have recorded it for my archive. Glenn

CEO of Voice of America’s parent agency defies subpoena despite
bipartisan concerns
Sep 24, 2020 6:30 PM EDT

Michael Pack, CEO of the U.S. Agency for Global Media, ignored a
congressional subpoena over concerns he has politicized and mismanaged
media outlets that helped the U.S. win the Cold War. One of those
outlets is Voice of America. Nick Schifrin reports and talks to Jamie
Fly, formerly the president of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, who
was fired by Pack. He is now at the German Marshall Fund...

** U S A. (7490), Sept 26 at 0000-0100, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`, no
calls but A&A conversing heatedly mostly about politix; they axually
believe we must vote for Trump in order to ``save the Republic`` while
Trump is really destroying it and must be thrown out. They are back in

** CHINA [and non]. Don`t be fooled by CNR1 jamming as Sound of Hope

It can be very misleading to rely on some frequency-list references.
First of all, the way-out-of-band SOH transmitters are extremely low
power, maybe 100-watts. The ChiCom attempt to jam most of them with
high-power regular SWBC transmitters carrying CNR1 programming (rarely
Firedrake music). Thus if you hear Chinese on one of these
frequencies, your first assumption should be that it is CNR1 jamming,
unless definitely proven otherwise by specific ID, or *not* being in
// to many other CNR1 frequencies, even legitimate ones which are not

Aoki/NDXC indicates the presence of jamming in some versions merely
with an *, easily ignored or overlooked. EiBi has separate entries for
the jammers; but not always are all included in either. Altho China
participates in HFCC, while preventing Taiwan and any clandestines
from doing so, China does not bother to register its jamming
transmissions. Would they even deny them if confronted?

I know copying real IDs in Chinese is difficult for us, but Ron Howard
quotes SOH: "Xiwang zhi sheng guoji guangbo diantai" (Sound of Hope
international broadcast station) ID given twice (once by OM and once
by YL).

Wolfgang Bueschel has done extensive surveys of these with remotes,
finding that Sound of Hope is usually slightly off-frequency while the
jammers are not. CNR1 programming includes timesignal on the hour,
while SOH does not. I often monitor until many of these close at 1400*
after TS. CNR1 jamming also applies to high-power inband transmissions
including RTI, VOA, RFA, and a few SOH, some of those in turn relaying
RFA.. Voice of Tibet and other broadcasts in Tibetan, and Uighur, and
even English are also subject to such jamming.

Every time some Westerner reports CNR1 jamming as if it were SOH, the
ChiCom must be very amused. 73, (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 2053)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 25 at 0203, again no signal from anonymous
mystery missionary station last heard on UT Sept 19. Such non-logs may
get a bit tiresome, but we need to keep checking as it originally
appeared without notice and recould; while awaiting any word from
connected? South American DXers about what and whence it really were,
subjunctively (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5080, Sept 24 at 0128, filthy spurblob with tell-tale F# tone
when tuned in FM mode, just like RHC often provides on 13 or 15 MHz
bands. This must be coming out of 5040 transmitter, so are there
others at 40 kHz intervals? Yes, but JBA on 5120 and 4960; surely one
on 5000 but totally blocked by strong WWV; in less favored locales may
well be QRMing WWV/H. By 0144 there is also a trace of program
modulation on 5080 as well as blob traces on 5120, 5160. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. 5025 Rebelde is still distorted but not involved.
Conveniently off the air clearing band for these is 5085 WTWW-2 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

First airing confirmed, UT Fri Sept 25 at 0130 on WRMIs, 5010, S7-S9
direct, // 5850 VG S9+10/20, and intact altho the post-music hit a bit
too quickly before my last word could finish, ``disclaimer`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, Sept 24 at 0620, weak music registering S9 on generous
meter, but undermodulated; like last night and lately, presumed a WRMI
transmitter as registered here but not on their website, at exciter
level of few watts or maybe a bit more to audiblize it this much
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2053)

** U S A. 4840, Sept 24 at 0618, WWCR, yet again S9+30 of dead air,
while 3215 and 5890 are successfully BSing. This keeps happening to
the 4840 transmitter, not that I really care. Wonder if there be
anyone in the 1300 WWCR Avenue building overnight who might notice?
There ought to be, with hundreds of kilowatts radiating - something.
The station burned down once before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Sept 25 at 0128 & 0245 chex, WTWW-2 is off; not WTWW-1
as I typoed before. Clears the band for spurs from CUBA, q.v. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Unfortunately awake Sept 24 at 1145 I reluctantly make a
quick check for Trans-Pacific carriers on the DX-398, finding only: a
trace on 846 kHz, Kiritimati? Usually heard around 0600, but now in
darkness several Pacificasians could also propagate, up to 250 kW from
Taiwan. It`s really too weak to DF. Walt Salmaniw, Victoria BC, said
Kiribati was inbooming there as early as 0515 today, which is
post-sunset at station, but no modulation to be heard.

And: JBA carrier on 774, difficult to DF, WSW or NW? Maybe both, i.e.
Australia and Japan. At 1152 I switch to the E-W longwire which gets
JBACs on 594, 774 and 1566. Resleep (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 24 at 0138, again no signal from anonymous
missionary station, at Caribbean Netherlands SDR. But there is a JBA
signal showing on the AMSynch as carrier varying around -29 Hz, just
right for R. San Antonio, Perú as previously measured on 4939.971
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 600, Sept 23 from 2350, dominant signal at TWR Bonaire
SDR is Radio Libertad, HJHJ, Barranquilla, with usual preacher? or
advisor? soon giving phone number several times, 304-531-6140, copied
for sure. Googling that goes nowhere except maybe West Virginia, for
which 304 is the area code: I think not. No known international
country code 304. Also mentions Maranoa, but searching on that leads
only to a region in SE Queensland, Australia: I think not.

Rebelde Cuba maybe the understation. Before hourtop 2359 full ID for
Radio Libertad, HJHJ and *disclaimer* that following program does not
reflect editorial opinions of that station. Into VOA relay, but
starting with announcement about it being on HJHJ. Not hearing any
jammer from Venezuela yet, as had been reported. 0030 Sept 24, break
for HJHJ ID, ``enlace con la Voz de América`` --- this is so smooth I
suspect it not be a live feed, but produced in HJHJ studio from
previously accessed podcasts. Rebelde in background // 710 via Key
West SDR. Recheck 0125 about the same (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. VOA relay on 600: see COLOMBIA

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2052 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday
September 23 from 2100:17 on WBCQ 7490.0, VP S5-S6 in noise level.
Frequency has been adjusted; it was long about 7490.06, yesterday
7490.02. I check during Turner at 0145 Sept 24 a Rochester KiwiSDR
which has SynchAM showing carrier varying slightly at minus 25 Hz,
i.e. 7489.975v, almost on spot.

Also confirmed UT Thu Sept 24 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9+10 direct
but more undermodulated than usual, a strain to copy. 0126 check via
UTwente, also undermodulated, but not such a problem at a tolerable
steady S9+10. Final SW airing of this edition. New WOR 2053 should be
ready by early UT Fri Sept 25 for first broadcasts on WRMIs at 0130 on
5010, 5850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Wed Sept 23 at 1523, LRA36 with good
S9+10 signal into Brasilia SDR; tnx reminder from Manuel Méndez, Spain
that it signed on today at *1335 when he could only hear it via
Brasil. YLs conversing and would be near 100% readable by a native
speaker, but they are rapidly casual rather than radio-enunciating.
1540 song; 1543, canned ID for `Corazón Antártico` program, and they
continue chatting, now something about sign-language for the deaf due
to some commemoration date; and then another about sexual exploitation
of children. Worthy causes, but are these even on the radar in
Antarctica?? 1551 song; 1601 ``radio pública`` ID for Antarctica
across Argentina. 1616 cuts off the air during music, but heard no
sign-off or even informal goodbye. Still off when I quit at 1621, as
nominal 1400-1600 sked as usual is very approximate. Will it repeat
later on this Saturday? The delayed Spanish/German/English RAE 7-hour
special postponed until Sept 19 was missed again because the radio op
was away at a Chilean base (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 335-MCW kHz, Sept 23 at 0628 UT, dash and YDL, ND beacon of
1000 watts at Chapleau, Ontario; at first under and then over BV in
Arkansas, see U S A (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 23 at 1453-1459: none higher than:
12550 JBA carrier with flutter; all JBACs: 11460, 11440, 11170, 11150,
11120, 11100, 11070, 10960, 10820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Sept 23 at 0201, R. Rebelde S9+20 and suptorted! Wiggle
that patchcord. 5055, JBA carrier at same time, no doubt leapfrog
mixing product of 5025 over 5040 RHC from same site.

4765, Sept 23 at 0207, R. Progreso is still on but also suptorted.
Recheck at 0619, still 5055 JBAC as 5040 fulcrum is prolonged past
0600. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEWFOUNDLAND [and non]. 2598-USB, UT Wed Sept 23 at 0224, marine
weather by roboYL in English, mentioning forecasts for Fri & Sat. Per
the most recent start time among the six stations alternating on this
frequency is 0207, from VOJ-6, Port-aux-Basques NL, with 400 watts.
Its other airings all start at :07 or in one case :37 past the hours.
And is bilingual with French.

2749-USB, UT Wed Sept 23 at 0225, marine weather by roboYL in French,
S7-S9; glad these are seasonally showing up again, but still plenty
noise level. Quite a while ago, but most recent start time on sked is
0140 from VAR-9 Yarmouth (Halifax) NS, 1200 watts in English/French.
All its emissions start at :40 past certain hours. As usual catching a
specific ID source is very difficult, let alone a callsign if ever
uttered. 2054, 2514 & 2582 are other such Canadian frequencies, but
scheduling or distancing very unfavorable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.93v, UT Wed Sept 23 at 0231, WBCQ good in what I
assumed would be `Amateur Radio Roundtable`, moved from 5130, but
chops off air at 0231.7* before I could confirm that, and before I
could finish remeasuring it; and does not come back by 0257. Not
overall power failure, as 7490.02v is still on BSing. But the updated
sked for 6160,
shows `Hal Turner`, from 0100 only until 0200, as already scheduled
there. `A.R.R.` is one of only two programs still shown on 5130, at
0100-0230 UT Wed and the chopoff time here correlates, but I believe I
had checked 5130 before and heard nothing. Maybe the third semihour
was tacked on 6160 after Hal? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 335-MCW kHz, Sept 23 at 0628 UT, ND beacon BV, soon overcome
by a Canadian, q.v. At first thought it was Bartlesville OK until
rechecked its frequency, only 201 kHz. This BV is Batesville - Almond,
Arkansas, 25 watts.

347-MCW kHz, Sept 23 at 0633 UT, NDB AFK which is 25 watts from
Nebraska City, NE.

356-MCW kHz, Sept 23 at 0634 UT, NDB ODX, 25 watts from Ord, which is
in central Nebraska, NNW of Grand Island. Beacons from this
second-adjacent state are regulars here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5072.1 & 5097.9, Sept 23 at 0203, can no longer detect
parasitic spur carriers out of 5085 WTWW-1, which have been there for
years; despite 5085 hitting S9+20/30 with some hum. Something must
have been tweaked. But now there is a distorted blob circa 5082 at
S9+10/20, without a match circa 5088. Recheck at 0620, 5085 in S9+30
of dead air, eventually revived with rock song, in German? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Sept 23 at 0616, WWCR in dead air yet again, S9+30,
while 3215 and much weaker // 5890 are still modulating BS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, Sept 23 at 1448, JBA carrier, fading to no carrier
from KVOH, usual situation here. I wonder how well it be doing to
further targets, but do not get around to rechecking until 1703:
absolutely no better here now when it might have built up, but E is
much more sporadic now than summer, with the 6m maps often showing
*no* Es to any MUF. Now I check various remotes not far off its
100-degree beam: Key West, JBA S6 which is more from its noise level.
Dominican Republic: nothing. Bonaire: VP S5 with AMSynch at -9.0 Hz
where I have often measured it here, and with ACI from BBC 17780 S7.
Pardinho, Brasil: JBA S5, must use LSB to avoid splash from 17780 BBC
in English, at S9+25, Ascension of course, this hour only --- those
lucky Brazilians! But why in the world on an almost empty band, are
these on adjacent channels?? Such are the drawbax of being stuck on a
single too-high frequency even thru solarmin (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

S5-S7 flutter, 12550, 12230 S6-S7 w/CODAR, > 12210, < 12190, 11460,
11440, 11150, 11120, 11100, 11070, 10960; 9215 S4-S6, 9200 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 22 at 2300, no signal from anonymous
missionary station into TWR Bonaire SDR. Early on, someone caught them
signing on at this hour, with third verse of Colombian national
anthem. Still nothing Sept 23 at 0045 at SDRs in Colombia, DR. So
missing for third night in a row; test phase over, and now what? Have
the S American DX groups come up with anything definite about true
transmitter location and even a name for it if never uttered? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. RHC spurblob survey, Sept 22 at 2200 out of 13740 S9+25:
13675 S6-S7; 13610 S5; 13806 S4-S5; at 65-66 kHz intervals; next one
at 13870 blocked by strong RTTY S9+25. Something`s always wrong at
RHC; but there were none circa 1400 out of 13700 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** GUAM. 15685, Sept 22 at 2205, S4-S6 of Vietnamese talk; modulation
seems irregular, surging/slightly distorted. Is KSDA at 22-23 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 267-MCW kHz, Sept 22 at 0622 UT, ND beacon HET, 25 watts
at Henryetta; heard before, but rarely. This encourages me to search
out *all* the OK beacons listed at dxinfocentre.com as a checklist for
me, with quite a few I have never heard, and wonder if really on the
air as I do hear 25-watters out-of-state; two of these from adjacent
states, transmitter sites apparently across in OK; with watts:

201 BV Bartlesville - Dewey 25;
255 SW Stillwater - Blaki 25;
267 HET Henryetta 25;
275 GUY Guymon 25;
278 SRE Seminole 25;
311 GK Fort Smith AR - Peno Bottoms 25;
323 HHW Hugo 25;
338 TU Tulsa 30;
341 EI Enid - Garfy 25;
350 RG Oklahoma City - Gally 400;
362 OWP Sand springs - William Pogue 25;
383 LB Liberal KS - Panck 25;
388 OFZ Fort Sill - Trail 30;
388 OK Okmulgee - Preston 25;
393 BZ Burns Flat - Foss 25 - back on;
400 AI Ardmore 30;
425 PFL Fort Sill - Post 25;
512 HMY Lexington - Muldrow 25 - back on;
515 PN Ponca City 25

I wish those copying my reports would keep lists like this on separate
lines; if not, insert semicolons at I have done this time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Tue Sept 22 at 2214, VOT VG this time S9/+20 direct
and no NSS RTTY audible, off already? Ending `Review of Foreign
Media`; then the multi-lingual ID reel time-filler which lasts 110
seconds. Next time I should count how many different IDs there be, as
I suspect some are in there which are not really on VOT SW now, maybe
webcast, such as Portuguese which is not among only 24 in the WRTH
2020. Also heard ``Burasi ---`` more than once, which is Turkish, but
must also apply to related dialects. If there are really 24, they
would average 4.6 seconds each. Next item at 2217, `Water Culture in
Anatolia` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, Tue Sept 22 at 2210, WRMI-6 with discussion of
far-right conspiracy theories about antifa, BLM leading to a communist
revolution in America --- taking them seriously! More Alex Jones? No,
the host is Bob Biermann, who has quietly started a second show on
WRMI besides his low-key musings on `Your Weekend Show` but in keeping
with his rightward leanings; now it`s high-key politix, on skedgrid as
`Truth 2 Ponder` this hour only Mon-Fri. And on the programming

``On Monday, August 31st, a new Radio Show and Podcast called “Truth
to Ponder” begins. It all kicks off at 6:00 PM Eastern Time, and is
hosted by Bob Biermann, who is also host of “Your Weekend Show.”

We certainly live in a time the likes of which we have never seen
before. Today, separating truth from fiction and fake from real is not
always easy. From the Pandemic to Politics, to Tech Tyranny and
overreaching control, Bob Biermann and a group of talented and
experienced individuals will sort through today’s news, and present
“Truth to Ponder.”

You can find out more about this new program at

9395 KHz at 6:00 PM Eastern Time Monday-Friday
9455 KHz at 10:00 PM Eastern Time Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
Additional Airings on a West Beam
5850 KHz 10:00 PM EST [sic] Monday & Tuesday``
What did someone say about broadcasts containing ``truth``?

** U S A. 9955, Tue Sept 22 at 2218, Radio EmmaToc on WRMI with a
Radio Caroline clip, S9+25/30 with some jamming audible only at fades.
I suppose this qualify as a `media program` so will add to my
DX/SWL/Media Program schedule. WRMI programming claims it is a
*monthly half-hour*, but grid shows a full hour at 2200-2300; need to
check what`s really on at 2230. And other times not confirmed lately:
UT Thu 0000-0030 on 9955, and UT Mon 0100-0200 on 9455. I guess a
monthly hour or semihour repeated for 4 weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9980, Sept 22 at 2219, WWCR Brother Scare is quite weak,
only S7-S9, while another WWCR is blasting in BS, S9+35 on 9350. Both
supposedly 100 kW; 9980 #4 at 90 degrees, 9350 #2 at 85 degrees, so
they should be the same here, and 9980 often blasts in too, until
2400. Could the current MUF lie between 9350 and 9980? Unlikely. Must
be something else, like reduced power (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 22 at
0613-0620: 531, 558, 603, 612, 621, 684, 711, 747, 774(2), 837,
*846(TP), 855(2), 882(2), 936(2), 1098(2), 1107(2), 1116(2), 1305(2),
1413, 1503(2), 1575; 1710(2-domestic) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
