Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. 9455, Dec 20 at 0031, Japanese at S9/+5, weakish
signal into Knoxville SDR after checking WOR on 9395; at first thought
maybe something Asian, but WRMI now scheduled with RAE Japanese relay
this hour UT Tue-Sat. At 285 degrees, this is hardly aimed at Japan,'
rather Honolulu and Port Moresby, PNG. If RAE were serious about
reaching East Asia, they would enlist a closer relay site (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 20 at 0434, this RHC is off, so no English at all.
Only other RHC found on is 11760 Spanish. Non-RHCs: 4765, 5910 on;
5025 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``Subsidies in Cuba: grateful fish --- The Castro 'subsidy' is like
treble hook chemically sharpened for deep-sea fishing.
Rafaela Cruz, La Habana 15 Dic 2023 - 19:53 CET, Treble hooks. Amazon
[caption]

"Gratitude," a word that shares etymological roots with
"gratuitousness," has been one of the moral lines used most often and
most effectively to keep Cubans sentimentally tied to Castroism. And,
although this emotional blackmail is no longer wielded as effectively
as in Fidel's time (a PhD in Demagoguery) the Government continues to
articulate paternalistic discourse about its "efforts made to take
care of the people." This, implicitly, elicits the citizenry's
gratitude and its loyalty towards those supposedly self-sacrificing
and disinterested leaders...``
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1702666385_51632.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Dec 19 before 0600 UT, K17JN-D, still claiming to
be ``K17JI-D`` is back on air already, having been OFF since Dec 17.
Looks like the same multi-channel lineup as before, without one-by-one
checking (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Dec 20 at 2301, S9+30/40 direct, token English
from SNR previewing afternews feature to be about Xmas customs, yawn;
and so it was at 2314 quickcheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Dec 20 at 2300, VOT not off the air,
S9/+20 direct with s/on sked in English. 2346 recheck when measured,
S9+20/30 into UTwente, ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, song; 2350 s/off
by the badax with partial *A23* not B23 English schedule; all times
and frequencies wrong but only one hour early instead of three hours
late! IS briefly and off 2352* uncovering the CCCCCCI from East
Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and
other Moslems. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2221 monitoring: confirmed UT
Wednesday December 20 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/25 into Knoxville
SDR.

Also confirmed Wednesday December 20 at 1505 the unscheduled 1500 on
WRMI 9955, S6/S9 direct; for at least third week in a row.

Also confirmed Wednesday December 20 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490.090, S9/+25
into Maryland SDR, yes, now offset+plus and calibration confirmed
accurate vs WWV 10000. By 2340 recheck, down to 7490.086. After two
weeks of dead air, and last week playing previous rather than current
WOR, WBCQ succeeds. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, UT Wed Dec 20 at 0432, WWCR-1 yet again sup/torted
during gospel huxter, S9+20/30. One program sked this hour UT
Tue/Wed/Thu; different ones other days of week: we should see if this
happen to them too. Something`s not right at Nashville (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 690, Dec 20 at 0803 UT, dead air atop several weakers.
Dominant 690 here day and night is KGGF Coffeyville KS, no sign of it
otherwise so presumably the dead one. Might have been missing a news
hole, but still silent after 0806 when some talkshow would have
resumed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7200 USB, not LSB, Dec 20 at 2319 QSO between strong
hams complaining about ham QRMers, someham always making anti-Semitic
remarx; first name basis and heard only one call mentioned in next few
minutes, probably the one speaking as he cambioed, but he didn`t even
say ``this is`` or ``from`` W1INE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** TURKEY [and non]. 6125, Dec 19 at 0442, no signal direct from VOT,
English to N America; propagation degraded but some other TA signals
are showing on 49m, so presumed off, but not checked at UTwente.
Something`s probably erroneous at Emirler.

5960.006, Dec 19 at 2340, VOT not off the air, S9+45 into UTwente,
``with-you-every-hour`` promo, song; 2353 the s/off with
all-UTC-times-wrong: will anyone there ever notice and get rid of that
recording? Something`s always awry at Ankara. 2355 IS; 2356 pause and
restart IS now with German IDs interspersed but 2357* cutoff in time
to prevent an entire spurious German hour, uncovering East Turkistan,
PBS ``Xinjiang``, std. denunciation, where there was a second
earthquake but news about that has been vague as to exactly where
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K Q O G B A N I [and non]. 25900, Dec 19 at 1608 BBCWS about
Sudan, with annoying musical background, via Woofferton, S9 fades to
S5 but listenable direct, slightly better than // 21630, S8/S3 via
ASCENSION. Of course both really intended for Africa as BBC does not
recognize N America as a SW target area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563 CW, Dec 19 at 1615 UT, HIFER beacon YSO, ID only
repeating. JBA, a struggle to copy since 1613. It`s Yellow Springs OH.
My only previous logs of YSO were November 6, 2021 at 1454, and
October 19, 2021 at 1425, the first one with more info about operator
James C Bailey, AJ8S.

This time, K6FRC is also simulaudible slightly better on 13565 CW. I
rarely hear anything* on the 13550-13570 ISM band except occasional
K6FRC, but look at all the possibilities:
https://www.lwca.net/sitepage/part15/index.htm
*That is, except for 24/7 beepery around 13560, presumed local stores`
RF ID stuff. Is this absolutely ubiquitous everywhere near a store?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2221 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday December 19 at 0350 the 0330 on WRMI 7780, S8/9+10 into
Durango2 SDR. The self-promotional `best` Kiwi at Maurice LA has been
AWOL lately.

Also confirmed Tuesday December 19 at 1406 the 1400 on WRMI 9955, S9
direct. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1200 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1230 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB [previous #2220]
1500 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [unsked but confirmed last 2 weeks]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW or 5130v?
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Dec 19 at 0759, WRMI-5 is OFF, while 9395 & much
weaker 9955 are on. 9455 is supposedly 24h but lately missing late at
nite. Skedgrid transmitter schedule shows going from Fámily Radio in
Spanish to TOMBS at 0800, but program sked below shows 9455 on red
System F, at 0800 instead going to RAE in Japanese. Just one among
many self-contradictory inconsistencies. Also, ignore the
``Effective`` dates on the color-coded skeds, which are never changed
even when obviously just now updated. System F is dated Oct 31, 2022.
Previous nights before 0800, 9455 had been overmodulated and
splattering (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Dec 19 at 1607, WRMI-3 still on with System E, TOMBS.
Supposedly after 1600 only on Saturday Sabbathdays, but this is
Tuesday. System E claims WRN on 9955 daily except Sat, 1600 until 1630
before going to internet only with more from WRN. Just one among many
self-contradictory inconsistencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, Dec 19 at 0436, WWCR-1 is S9+20/30 but again suptorted
= modulation suppressed and distorted. Something`s not right at
Nashville. `Call to Decision` again the scheduled program, due a
refund? Or is it their fault? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1700 kHz, Dec 19 at 0800 UT, ``1700theChamp.com`` defacto ID
from Iowa and into CBS Sports Radio, so KBGG Des Moines. A very busy
website (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Sigh, correcting one frequency ref, At 1602, 9550 opens Chinese - not 9585

Glenn

** ALASKA. 9550 & 9585, Dec 18 at 1600, KNLS IS on both! Unusual, but
they do have two transmitters, sometimes both funxional. At 1601,
still IS on 9550, while 9585 is opening Russian. At 1602, 9550 opens
Chinese, pronouncing website in English except some CC word for
``point``: www.smzg.net --- that page worx, but I wonder what SMZG
stands for, transliterated from Chinese, name of station? Main English
site leads to NOT FOUND schedule page!
https://www.worldchristian.org/welcome/who-we-are/how-to-listen/
As I learnt long ago, it`s easier to find a full sked in the Russian
part!
https://www.knls.net/%d1%80%d0%b0%d1%81%d0%bf%d0%b8%d1%81%d0%b0%d0%bd%d0%b8%d0%b5-knls/
All that gibberish is converted from a Russian word I would
transliterate as: raspisanie - which means schedule. Sure enuf, tho
labeled with B23 datespan, it`s contradictory to what I heard: at
1600, Xmtr 1 on 9585 in Russian, but Xmtr 2 shown on 6110 in Chinese
at 16-17; yet 9550 at 15-16 & 17-18! However, HFCC shows 6110 only at
14-15 in English, and at 16-17 the two 9`s. KNLS is known for abrupt
midseason changes, and one of the transmitters failing (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 11749.84 approx., Dec 18 at 2312, music presumed
the always-variable RVM but more than one carrier around here.

Currently something local is putting out very weak carriers every 10
kHz ending in -0 but not exactly, all over the SW bands. Previously
and maybe again later, 10/kHz carriers were appearing near frequencies
ending circa 7. Ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5910, Dec 18 at 0448, CRI relay via CUBA is on in Cantonese,
bigsig obviously on ATS-909 portable; had been missing before, a
couple times. So COLOMBIA remains blocked. This time carrier on until
0500.6*. Something`s not wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 18 at 2308, S9/+10 of Spanish from RHC, this
frequency way overtime, supposedly -2030* after a sesquihour in
English, French. But 15230 supposed to be on, missing. Also on VG //
11760 but no other 25m; 13650 as usual with CRI non-Portuguese relay
of Chinese music only. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 17570, Dec 18 at 2307, S9/+10 direct in Thai? the SSOB and
almost the OSOB! No, it`s similar Khmer as sked from KSDA due west
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11610, Dec 18 at 2311, S9+10/20 of dead air, no doubt
MWV again failing to turn off after Arabic until 2258. Next broadcasts
not until 0200; wake up! Something`s maladjusted at Mahajanga. BTW, I
see on page 644 in WRTH 2023, two additional names for the site, N.B.,
never referenced in logs, I wonder why: (Belobaka); Amparemahitsy ---
more alliterative alternative temptations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210 kHz, Dec 18 at 0701 UT, Town Hall news, S9+38
dominating, promo some far-right extremist talkshow; 0705 ``Five-state
talker, KGYN Guymon`` ID; too modest. Continues to be ND at night
rather than protecting Philadelphia as required; altho we are slightly
off the notch, more like thru Wichita. This explains how someone in
Connecticut DXed KGYN during a WPHT pause. NRC AM Log shows both
branded as ``The Big Talker``. Both also had CBS News, changed? Log
does not show KGYN with THN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Dec 18 at 2300, token English from SNR VG S9+20/30
direct, also much weaker 12030 and JBA carriers on 17715 & 17755.
Previews topix after news: ``Harry Potter`` exhibition touring Europe
attracting huge crowds; and about some criminal, José Moreno C---
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Dec 17 at 2314 check, VOT English not off the
air, S9+25/35 into UTwente with multi-lingual ID filler reel.

[non]. 5960.001, Dec 18 at 2300 check direct, VOT English not not off
the air, i.e. is off the air; 2334 UTwente agrees, nothing but the
ChiCom which TRT normally overrides when it`s on. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, Dec 18 at 1550, beacon K6FRC is JBA -- first time
heard since June 18 at 0703, despite almost daily scans across the ISM
band; otherwise would only get it shortly after CA sunrise. Allegedly
1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA. Much more regular is a biggersig on
28300 from a different K6FRC/B QTH, Tracy CA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2221 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
December 17 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+15 with no
CC QRM unlike Friday, into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 18 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 but
noisy direct, off side of SW beam; and still no noise blast QRM at
outset.

NOT confirmed UT Monday December 18 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160
-68 Hz = 6159.932, S5/S8 into NH SDR: rather, Johnny Lightning on RNI
runs a full hour overtime; includes commercial parodies. 0500 switch
to TOMBS with Alex Scourby Bibleblather. WOR back next week? Next,
this week:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to SW
1400 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1200 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1230 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB [previous #2220]
1500 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [unsked but confirmed last 2 weeks]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW or 5130v?
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Dec 18 at 0659, nothing but a JBA carrier, presumed
WBCQ very much outpropped, rather than inactive Cuban spy numbers
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 9960, Dec 18 at 0655, RV with island? music and talk,
S3/S5 direct and gone by 0659; 9955 WRMI even weaker. Am usually not
ready to tune before 0700 but hustle tonight to reconfirm RV still
there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [non]. 11895, Dec 18 at 2314, 1 kHz tone test, 2315 VR IS a
bit and off*. Scheduled Vietnamese via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES,
*starting at 2315-2400*. For now, suspended violation of Separation Of
Church And State, but probably came back, unchecked further (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier check, Dec 18 at
0706, only 891, audible het against 890s, among the regular spots. Not
only WLS but CCI seems Spanish, likely CUBA 200 kW rather than several
low-powered Unitedstatesians (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9096 approx., Dec 18 at 1538 echoey tones S9+20, like a
log amid the 7 MHz band some weeks ago. No carrier to measure
precisely (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
