DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS update March 10:
including many DST changes for Cuba, USA

** BRAZIL. 9666.720, March 10 at 0713, RVM with S4-S7 of secularish
music, representing ZY on 31m, altho sometimes I have a JBA carrier
9819+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, March 10 at 0716, RHC only S4-S7 of dead air while all
other frequencies are off already. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.617v, March 9 at 2142, today`s R Cairo check via
UTwente: very strong but extremely suptorted with hum, awful, can`t
even be positive it`s in English. Something`s always egregious in
Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2129)

** ETHIOPIA. 7110, March 10 at 0400, another check for anything but
the INTRUDER, R. Ethiopia which has been here for months, but Robin
Harwood, Tasmania, had reported something European in French. All I
hear now is incomprehensible African language, presumably Amharic,
with the ID, ``Yeh ---`` something, as in WRTH. No French or Slavic.
No second station, no QRM except occasional adjacent SSB QRhaM; fading
down a lot by 0445 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2129)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 9 at 2316, VOT VG signal and mod unto UTwente
this time, with `Feeling Supreme` about natural remedies against pain
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2128 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday March 9
at 2200 on (7490.1v) webcast -- BUT NO SIGNAL on 7490 direct or to
Virginia, Missouri SDRs; yet 9330 VG and even 6160- could be
detected. From next Wednesday at 2100, even more daysorbtion.

Also confirmed UT Thursday March 10 after 0130 on WRMI 5010 VP, 9395
S9/S7 directs.

Note: imposition of useless DST March 13 will force several WRMI
airings to one UT hour earlier, viz.:
Fri 1430 9955
Sat 0130 9395
Sun 2230 5950
Tue 0030 9395 - and 9455?
Tue 2230 9955
Thu 0030 9395 - and 9455?
All other airings on 5010, 5850, 7730, 7780 stay at the same UTs

All airings on WBCQ will shift: Sat 0400 4790, Mon 0300 6160-, Wed
2100 7490+, we hope.

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

** U S A. 7780, March 10 at 0200, WRMI has replaced Argentina relay
with Radio Svoboda = R Liberty in Russian of the USAGM, which refuses
to put it on any of our SW transmitters closer to Russia, e.g. ideally
situated in Germany. Continues for the hour all-talk, S9 into UTwente;
JBA S4-S6 into Pskov, Russia, SDR, next to Estonia near the western
border; someone in Arlington VA is already monitoring same, so I camp
on him. Meanwhile, Argentina remained on 5800. This deal was prompted
by crowdfunding campaign, like VOA at 2105 on 15770, but Jeff
indicates he`ll keep doing it no matter what.

0259 WRMI ID, 0300 into surprise beepery, seems unlike SW Radiogram
but only going by ear. I never hear any voice announcements, but the
sound changed at 0313; 0329 cut to music and WRMI ID; 0330 into a
gospel huxter with a heavy accent from Brampton, Ontario. That would
be Soteriah International Ministry, daily except UT Sunday. The
beepery came about without any notice or publicity that I am aware of.
I ask Jeff White and Kim Elliot about this, and they reply:

``Glenn: Actually it's a test that Kim prepared in four different
modes. The content is an article in Russian about the 75th anniversary
of the Russian service of the VOA. Jeff``

``Testing text modes in Russian. Via SDR in Russia, signal is too weak
to understand more than the occasional voice word. But our slower text
modes are decoding 100%. Screenshot attached. Kim``

I check again next night UT March 11 on 7780: again R. Svoboda opening
with its long-unheard interval signal. Not another beepery at 0300,
back to R. Slovakia International, in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2129)

** U S A. 9390-9400, March 10 at 0709, heavy wideband noise at S8-S9,
almost blotting out TOMBS on WRMI 9395; almost as if deliberate
jamming, and not the sound of DRM nor Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9517-USB, March 10 at 0711, weak 2-way, in Spanish?,
intruding (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, March 9 at 1507-1509, no signals from
LRA36 into three Brazilian SDRs checked. Someone in Lancaster PA was
also listening to nothing this Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13530, March 8 at 2320, JBA carrier with flutter vs CODAR;
13130 & 13020 likewise at 2321 & 2322, all traditional CNR1 jammer
frequencies against Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, March 8 at 2318, RHC presents S9+25 of dead air with
hum, while 13680 is only S6/S7 but managing to modulate Spanish
suptortedly and hummingly. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7110, March 9 at 0334, R. Ethiopia on AM, good
in presumed Amharic via UTwente; intermittent Slavic ham talk on
exactly 7110 LSB only, evitable if listening in USB. I am not hearing
a separate Ukraine-connected broadcaster as reported the day before by
Robin L Harwood, Tasmania:

``[SWL] unusual broadcast on 7110 kHz. There is a broadcaster on 7110
in a European language with a news/current affairs program. I know
Ethiopia has been there but the announcers are definitely not African.
Frequent mentions of Ukraine with male and female presenters. Signal?
was good at 0400 but is now dropping up and down in QSB. Music bridges
and professional presentation. Language sounds Romanian or Polish.
Anyone also hearing it? 0422 7110 UNID News/current Affairs. Frequent
mentions of Ukraine. Signal was S9 at 0402 but has dropped to S6.
Heard via Albertirsa, Hungary SDR.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13089 USB, March 8 at 2322, marine weather with geocoörds,
S9, overmodulated and distorted, i.e. NMN, Chesapeake VA. Equally
defective and // on 12788 USB, NMG, New Orleans LA. Anyham would be
ashamed to emit such signals, but not the USCG. Note to editors,
``umlauts`` on English words cannot be replaced by adding an e. They
signify separate syllabification, not vowel quality (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 7780, March 9 at 0200, WRMI with R. Svoboda in Russian,
instead of RAE in Portuguese, which continues on 5800 only, while the
two used to be //. Svoboda is a test as prompted by the crowdfunding
campaign. Seems to be all-talk and continues past 0230 for the rest of
the hour. 7780 on NE antenna makes it OK S9/+15 into UTwente, but no
signal at Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, remote which seems to be funxional,
not blocked or jammed, but maybe too far: east of Moscow about the
same distance as west of Moscow to the Belarus` border.
Yet it`s still too early before local sunrises in Ukraine and western
Russia. Shame on USAGM for being unwilling to employ any of its own SW
transmitters for these.

John Jurasek advises, ``Here's an update just posted to the
Crowdfunding Page: "And, best news of the day; we have a first
mainstream media publicity about what we all have accomplished.
Congratulations to every one of you. This is your story:


Hill writer Rebecca Klar just doesn`t get it, both in headline and
body referring to VOA broadcasting on SW ``in`` Russia or Ukraine. The
point is, this is INTO from outside, as it has to be.

Richard Langley reports: ``This is the latest update from the
campaign. Seems last night's broadcast was a test.

"Thanks to WRMI, our one-hour test transmission in Russian (from Radio
Svoboda -- Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty) is on the air right now on
7780 kHz. (A clip below of the first minute or so with the station ID
in English followed by the Russian programming as heard on the U.S.
East Coast).

"We are already getting solid reception reports from as far away as
Poland so presumably it also being received in Russia, as well as the
surrounding countries where Russian is widely understood.

"We hope to start the daily transmissions in Russian soon, in addition
to the VOA English program dedicated to Ukraine news which we began
airing Monday. "Thank you again everyone for your contributions.
Without you this would not be happening tonight!"
-- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2128 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday March 8 at
2330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 direct, no jamming audible, but seems
undermodulated. [Much later at 0723 March 9, 9955 is still strong
S9+10, but now pulse jamming against Alex Scourby Bibling on TOMBS.
Way to go!]

As usual zzzz thru Wed March 9 at 1030 on WRMI 5850; anyone hear it?
Yes, Richard Lemke in Alberta: ``Dear Glenn: 5850, hearing World of
Radio #2128, and confirming it, 1029, 1030 (55433), March 9 2022``

** U S A. 15610, March 8 at 2315, WEWN boosted by sporadic E to
S9+15/35 vs default JBA at too-close-for-F2 one megameter distance,
strong enough to hear this transmitter still suffering from squeal. At
first also an echo but that was someone`s earphone bleeding thru on a
phone contact in discussion: too long a delay to be longpath.

** CHINA [and non]. 11590, March 8 at 1604, Firedragon music jamming
audible but underneath Chinese, i.e. RFA via TINIAN, adding up to
S5/S7 with a SAH. Long time since I`ve heard any FD, but surely they
can do better with a loud & clear signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 8 at 2045, RHC English seems apolitical at the
moment, but as I was dozing off in nap before 2100 French I think
there was something about Russia. Anyhow, The Other side:

``Russia-Ukraine War --- Castro's support for the invasion of Ukraine
will aggravate shortages in Cuba

The international sanctions against Russia will not only affect Cuba
in terms of tourism, but also as regards loans and collaboration in
industry and transportation.
Roberto Álvarez Quiñones, Los Ángeles 03 Mar 2022 - 16:56 CET

Raúl Castro and Vladimir Putin. AP [caption]

Cubans are greatly ashamed that their country has been dragged as a
State, by the Castroist dictatorial mafia, into line with the new
imperial czar of "all the Russias", Vladimir I (with the same imperial
aspirations of Ivan IV, or Peter the Great) in his invasion of
Ukraine. It is as if in September 1939 the government of Federico
Laredo Bru (controlled by Batista) had shown solidarity with Hitler
when he invaded Poland and unleashed the most devastating war in

Flying in the face of all reason, given its location in the heart of
the West, and its culture, Raul Castro has placed Cuba on the wrong
side. In doing so, the dictatorship has betrayed Cubans, Latin America
and the West, and has isolated Cuba in a move that evokes the betrayal
perpetrated by Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Finland when, together
with Fascist Italy, they sided with Nazi Germany...``

May I suggest that any editors who find the above too off-topic to
publish, at least retain the headline and the link.

Anyhow2, also a reason to remind that due to the imposition of stupid
DST March 13, as a running dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Habana goes from
UT-5 to UT-4, affecting most of their SW timings, causing
consternation abroad where the clox are not, yet wrecked. Thus begins
a Biweek of Confusion until March 27 when most of Europe change their
clox and not coincidentally the A-22 SW season begins, prompting
further time and/or frequency changes; but Cuba usually takes another
week or two to decide what to do; while Mexico, Australia and NZ don`t
adhere to either date. Anyhow2, the first RHC English hour of the day
traditionally moves one UT hour earlier to 19-20 UT but stays on same
frequency, subject to usual switching and/or feed errors.

** EGYPT. 9899.617v, March 8 at 2125, R. Cairo via UTwente, S9+35 but
with extreme distortion, unreadable; 2130 timesignal only a few
seconds late. Something`s always egregious at Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 15770, Monday March 7 at 2034, checking WRMI reception: MUF
at 12 MHz at Nizhni Novgorod no good; S7-S9 into UTwente during BBB
nonsense; good S9/+15 into PEI remote, better than direct to here way
off the side of the NE beam from Okee. I`m preparing for WRMI`s new
relay of VOA webcast-only `Flashpoint Ukraine` at 2105-2130, so I
stick with PEI.

A crowdfunding campaign bought the WRMI time, since VOA refuses to air
this program on any of its scores of SW transmitters! See
apparently headed by one Kate Neiswender, Esq., Lake Arrowhead, CA,

Relay starts at 2100 with VOA News, the YL caster admitting at closing
that she`s remote. Isn`t it about time to reopen the VOA Newsroom

`FPUK` in 25 minutes has a broad roundup of stories from within and
without Ukraine, including outsourced from AP and Reuters. It may seem
inadequate for those of us watching MSNBC & CNN wall-to-wall. And
M-F only: as we all know, nothing ever happens on Sat/Sun. Anchor
Steve Miller says from next week, March 14, time for it will advance a
sesquihour to 1935 UT -- obviously 60 minutes of it due to imposition
of EDT instead of EST, irrelevant abroad. Can WRMI accommodate that? I
asked Jeff and he says they shall, 1935 still on 15770.

Miller utters ``ya/know`` over and over in an interview, as bad as
Christiane Amanpour. He never mentions this being on SW now, unlike
Steve Herman, W7VOA who twitted about it. For USAGM, SW is a low-
priority almost-obsolete ``platform`` of possible use in the wilds of

Last story at 2126 is about a cameraman who was killed when the Kyiv
TV tower was hit, altho it did not collapse. By now the signal via
PEI is fading down; as at 2130 WRMI reverts to R. Prague in French.

R. Prague International was sacrificed for this but still has these
other times on WRMI in English, per skedgrid: 1300/1200 except Sundays
on 9955; daily 2330 on 5850; 0130 Tue-Sat on 5800; 0400/0300 daily on
9955; 0400 daily on 5800. Double/times with a slant refer to airings
on Systems with an upcoming DST change. RPI is of course another
station refusing to do any SW itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Not to be outdone by dead air from only one WTWW, four of The
Cuban Five are deadairing, March 7 at 0704-0706 chex: 5040, S9+30/40;
6060, S9+10/20 with big hum; 6100, S9+20/30 with less hum; 9700, S9+30
of lower hum. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9490, March 7 at 0711, pulse jamming vs nothing, long after
Radio República via RMI via France is finished, from the incompetent
DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INTERNATIONAL VACUUM. CNN on unknown satellite frequency, into DTV
cable channel 50 of Suddenlink, Enid, March 6 at 2050-2100 UT is not
breaking up like it was 24 hours ago, when suspected due to solar
transit outage (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 9895, March 7 at 0708, ME music at S9/S7, soon ID as
Radio Farda and then English song, ``Have I Told You Lately That I
Love You?`` --- that should win us friends over there. Something new?
Had not noticed before but scheduled all B-21 at 0430-0730, 100 kW at
85 degrees from Biblis, GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11540, March 7 at 1536, about equal collision
between Turkish jammer and Dengê Welat teaming up on same frequency
except for a fast SAH, and nothing on 11530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. 9770, March 7, 1758-1830, one more check for the newly
HFCC-registered revived Russian language on BBCWS via Woofferton
effective March 3: still NO show, listening via UTwente and to
9771-LSB via Nizhny Novgorod KiwiSDR, to be alarmed should a carrier
come on, but never. At least this SDR is not blocked with plenty other
signals on the H2Ofall. Recheking HFCC as of March 7:
that imaginary broadcast has been *removed* with nothing else in
Russian to replace it. So, never mind hearing BBC in Russian when
necessary on SW; let alone Ukrainian! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2128 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
March 6 at 2100.7 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, Villa Estense, VG
without QRM into nearby Noale KiwiSDR.

Also confirmed Sunday March 6 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+15/25 into
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 7 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+20 into
Missouri SDR with nearby storm crashes.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 7 starting late at 0405 on Area 51
webcast and presumably WBCQ 6160-, after JL runs over. Oops, it`s last
week`s 2127. I email Larry immediately that it should be 2128. Not
monitoring further but catch closing at 0434 by when it is # 2128.
Later Larry tells me that only about one minute of 2127 aired before
he noticed and corrected it. Next:

** U S A. 4790, UT Monday March 7 at 0300 initial show of WBCQ Concert
Hall on Radio Angela, Uncle Bill introducing, says may have guest
hosts later as show evolves; tonight: Act I of Rossini`s Barber of
Seville. Bill refers us to web for synopsis. I`m listening first via
Maryland remote but there is that pulsing whine and occasional
uteblaaps. To Missouri SDR it`s S8/+10, no whine but nearby storm
crashes. Hunting around for best remote, my comments to WOR iog:

Not so good - Traverse City MI gets storm crashes now at 0315 as would
any in a wide area within hundreds of miles of the storm front from TX
to IN centered over MO. CODAR also audible. I haven`t found a better
one tonight. Wash DC area with less storm noise, no CODAR, but some
other continuous whinepulsing. Brunt of signal is heading right into
the storm area. Not making it at all to UTwente. Chris Smolinski
provides seven Kiwis at Westminster MD. I`m trying 8074 which is
pretty good but still with the DC-area whinepulse in the background.
What is causing that??

It`s tempting to listen to `Encore` classical music on 5950 WRMI,
stronger signal and higher frequency amounting to less storm noise,
S9+10/35 into Missouri, starting with Poulenc, Les Biches. Back on
4790, Act I of BOS is over about 0435 and UB says Act II plays next
week. To fill out the bihour tonight, some PDQ Bach starting with the
1712 Overture. But competition now from another BCQ, 6160, q.v. (Glenn

as soon as late-starting WOR 2127/2128 finishes, not HRI but Voice
Pancho Villa, studio recording of a multi-ennial tradition, this
year`s SWL Fest broadcast, which had been reported axually on air
unlike rest of virtual-only proceedings, on 6955 March 6 at 2100-2115
including a full recording:
Pretty raunchy, including having Google speak translations into
Russian of various insults against Putin. About 0449 filled with Jean
Shepherd (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, March 7 at 1540, clips of R. Ukraine International,
about culture, music, said by Jeff to be from their final English
webcast before suspension, then about famous Ukrainians. 1543 about
Russian service of RUI, i.e. AWR Wavescan; and on to item about the
finale of Brazuguese DX program Encontro DX, canceled on Rádio
Aparecida. Dozens more opportunities to hear WS this week on WRMI
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770 - this just in to the WOR iog via Martyn Williams:
A crowdfunding campaign has resulted in VOA`s `Flashpoint Ukraine` via
WRMI, since VOA itself refuses to air it on SW, starting March 7 at
2105-2130 M-F after the news -- grid shows this will be at the expense
of Radio Prague! 15770 is aimed NE toward Europe, but remains to be
heard how far it may penetrate after dark.

I`ve hinted in the past to Jeff White that he should put at least some
NPR news on WRMI as a public service, offsetting crap like TOMBS,
SMTV, etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, March 7 at 0702, S9+20/30 of dead air from WTWW-1,
while Ted`s Toy, 5085 WTWW-2 continues modublaring, prompting for rock
requests, and ``pinning the needle`` at S9+60 on my R75, hardly ever
happening with a non-local signal. Think of all the hot meals for
needy Lebanese which could have been purchased for the cost of all
that 5830 wasted juice. Unusually, Ivo Ivanov says 5830 was still on
the air and modulating Scriptures for America at 1058. Something`s
always loony at Lebanon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
