Hauser Update  View Printable Version 
Friday, November 20 2020

Hauser
** ALASKA. 6110, Nov 20 at 1420, rock music at S9/+10, 1422 devotional
talk about children; 1428 KNLS ID with Anchor Point postal address
lacking the P O Box number where they must be well-known; or email
KNLS@aol.com, outdated? I assume all the p- and e-mail really goes
back to produxion HQ in Franklin TN. Back to ``today`s best music``.
Rather odd that this be right next to 6115 RNZI, but at least they are
not colliding directly. RNZI no stronger and no problem until it
musicalize, then better LSB KNLS. 6110 is axually the latest known
scheduled frequency for this emission of its (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 284-MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0713 UT, ND beacon dash and QD,
which is 500 watts from The Pas, Manitoba.

266-MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0717 UT, dash and XD, 32-watt NDB from
Edmonton, Alberta. I was tuned to 265-USB.

250-MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0718 UT, dash and FO, 1600-watt NDB at Flin
Flon, Manitoba.

233-MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0720 UT, dash and BR, 200-watt NDB at Brandon,
Manitoba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 11150, Nov 20 at 1356, JBA carrier presumed CNR1 jammer, but
no others found in the 13s, 12s, 11s or 10s before 1400. When
propagation was summerier, there would be loads of them before most
closed at 1400* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, Nov 20 at 1355, JBA carrier, suspiciously 2 x 6100
from Cuba, but no signal when I go there, nor later when I go back to
12200 --- must have just closed as nominally sked until 1400*.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 20 at 2239, RHC English is finally on revived time
and frequency for Africa, so the B-20 sked is at last going into
effect, 3 days later than publicized and 26 days after it began for
everystation else. Only S7-S9 and noisy. Something`s always wrong at
RHC.

How about Spanish? Yes, B-20 frequencies also activated including
after 2240 chex Nov 20: 11850 S9+20 overmodistorted ex-11800, and also
the minus 10 JBA parasite on 11840; plus 10 on 11860 there is also a
carrier under the jamming needlessly continuing against no Martí. Same
11760 is also OMD. 9650 has good mod, S9+10 blocking attempt of Guinea
to use just one frequency on the entire SW range, ex-9640 and still //
weaker 9535. New 13680 also on and OMD, for Europe ex-15370 or is it
also ex-13740? S9+10/20. After 0100 in English look for 9700 ex-6145;
after 0500, 6060 should be back (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Nov 19 sometime after 20 UT, MWV in African
Pathways Radio with African accent, including an unAfrican
anti-Science so-called `Creation Moment`, so no KNLS Alaska program
instead at this time, as had been reported twice before by Richard
Langley, NB in the 18 UT hour on 13670, maybe a mixup. Both these put
good signals into North America. I still haven`t managed to check
which English is appearing at 1800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2061)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Nov 20 at 2108, S6 pirate playing ``La
Bamba``. Initially unID logs here later say IDed as WDOG:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74523.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Nov 20 at 2109, bit of music then SSTV
beepery, S9+10/20, much stronger than neighbor on 6925-USB. 2110 brief
distorted unreadable voice announcements and more SSTV. 2112 pause and
more SSTV, noisy announcement, L&C clear ``Don`t Tread on Me``
2nd-amendment song now S9+25 peaks; 2116 another song. Strangely
enough there are no logs of this bigsig in HFU, but there was similar
behaviour an hour earlier as unID:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74517.0.html
An SSTV proclaimed: ``I HAD MY / PATIENCE / TESTED / I`M NEGATIVE``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-AM, Nov 20 at 2110, JBA carrier, unID pirate?
2118 fading up S3 to S5 so I can make out a bit of English talk.
During previous hour this was reported on 6969.9 as unID relay of WPTI
94.5 Greensboro NC:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74516.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350-MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0705 UT, ND beacon RG at WRWA OKC
is audible again after missing last night. Altho the carrier can be
fairly strong, the modulation level is fairly weak (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** U A E. 11925.12 approx., Nov 20 at 1416, open carrier or JBM. Only
listee in EiBi is this site with NHK relay in English at 1400-1430.
Something`s doubly wrong at Abu Dhabi Media, mostly off-frequency.
WRTH 2020 says it`s state-owned but operated and maintained by the
UK`s Encompass, which one would think could do a better job of it. And
do their clients not know or care what`s happening? BTW, this
transmission is absent from Japan`s own Aoki/NDXC list (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 329-MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0710 UT, NDB PMV, 25 watts from
Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Also four 2-letter Canadians, q.v., and
Oklahoma, q.v. in same session (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN [non]. 12045, Nov 20 at 1411, big tone and no sign of a
broadcast, but at 1413 now it`s off audiblizing some weak talk, i.e.
listed R. Liberty in Uzbek via Biblis, GERMANY site, but in sideband
splash from 12050 WEWN. The tone must have been too strong for a
jammer if any against this service (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 300-MCW kHz, Nov 19 at 0717 UT, dash and YIV, 500 watt ND
beacon at Island Lake, Manitoba, vacillating whether it be LW or MW.
Location is NE MB near Ontario, same latitude as north end of huge
Lake Winnipeg. See also OKLAHOMA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Supposedly going into effect Nov 17, new B-20 frequencies of
RHC have not shown up by UT Nov 20; something`s always wrong at RHC,
e.g.: Nov 19 around 0300 still on 6145 not 9700; at 0710 only English
frequency remaining is 6100. By Nov 20 at 0323, still on 6145 and 6000
only.

Nov 19 at 1450, still on 7350 not 9640. Nov 19 at 2200, still no
revival of English to Africa on 11880; Spanish still on 11800 not
11850. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2061)

** CUBA. 13764 approx., Nov 19 at 1455, extremely distorted F#
spurblob out of RHC 13700 AM is QRMing 13765 VOKorea, Commies vs
Commies! minus 64 match 13636 is much weaker, and not audible circa
13828. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 5959.888, Nov 20 at 0319 music at S6-S9, presumably R.
Kuwait since *0300 always off-frequency, altho my first guess was
XJPBS Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of ChiCom cultural genocide and
brainwashing of Uyghurs, which is also 5960-minus, but 2+ hours past
sunrise there at 0111 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 350-MCW kHz, Nov 19 at 0730 UT, no signal from RG,
ND beacon at Will RoGers World Airport, OKC; all I hear is from
351-MCW kHz, dash and YKQ, 500 watts from Fort Rupert - Waskaganish,
Quebec.

515-MCW kHz, NDB PN in Ponca City, is still OFF as of Nov 19, gone for
good? I last logged it July 30 after an absence, and first noted it
missing again August 11, forever since; leaving nothing on the 500-529
band but some occasional NAVTEX hash around 518 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U A E. 5995.096, Nov 20 at 0320, another JBA algo, presumed BBC
Arabic as scheduled this hour from this site so replete with
offfrequenciness (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2060 monitoring: confirmed final
repeat, UT Thu Nov 19 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, good S9+10/15 at Utwente

Confirmed first broadcasts UT Friday November 20 at 0130 on WRMIs: On
System F, 5850 VG, // 5010 fair S9/+10 but noisy and again chirping
from 5007; and confirmed not synchronized separate playout on System
B, NEW 9955 fair S8-S9 but fading down and out before 0200, not much

** NORTH AMERICA. 6914-USB, Nov 18 at 2259, pirate music at first hard
to pinpoint until a voice could sound about right here. Heavy beat
dance music at the rate of 128/minute - slightly more than disco which
is about 120. No announcements between breaks, nor any caught in
sporadic chex past 2326 still going. Good modulation better than many
big guns achieve, and S8-S9. Many many logs here as Mix Radio
International
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74455.15.html
starting with this one 3 hours ago:
``Details: 2020 - Ultra-wide USB - with jazz fusion music « Last Edit:
Today at 20:25 by Big Badfish Al »`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Wed Nov 18 at 2312, VOT English to us underway, S7-S9
with `Review of Foreign Press` for only a sesquiminute with little but
headlines from several agencies; 2313.5 `Today in History` -- first
something about the Ottoman Empire in 1900y, the last date I thought
said ``November 12``? which would not be today. 2316.8-2318.6, reel of
multilingual IDs, then songs, not `Letterbox` theme, and still no
mailbag since August at its former regular spot. Now there`s a LAH
maybe from East Turkistan clash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2060 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November
18 from 2200:21.5 on WBCQ 7490.15v, S9+5/20.

Also confirmed Wed Nov 18 from 2300 on WRMI 9955, S9+30 generally over
Cuban commie jamming but with some deep fades while jamming does not
and seems to surge by comparison. Next:

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 18 at 0704, RHC English is S9+30 but just barely
modulated, in fact suptorted; also 6000 but undermodulated. Not on
6145 or 6060 or 5040 which might have provided usable audio. Still
waiting for B-20 changes to kick in. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13633 & 13768 approx., Nov 18 at 1454, S9+20 of spurblobs out
of 13700 RHC, just garbage in SSB mode when trying to pinpoint them,
but mostly readable modulation in AM or FM mode, which clearly
audiblize the accompanying F# above-middle-C telltale tone, and I have
just reconfirmed that note on my keyboard = approx. 370 Hz if A = 440
per
https://pages.mtu.edu/~suits/notefreqs.html

Then I search for more at intervals of 67-68 kHz and sure do find
them, the outer ones only by the F# signature, down to 6th order:
13293, 13362, 13432, 13499, 13566; not so many on the plus side:
13837, 13906, 13972 but not within the 20m hamband. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Nov 18 at 0700, RNZ news at S7-S9, the SSOB by
far and almost the OSOB if it were not for JBA carriers on 11530,
11670, 11680, 11760, 11815, 11870, 11880, 11980. Glad to hear this
propagating and hope it keep up all our night for those awake. Before
0659 it`s on 13840, not so good. Current websked shows:
06:59 - 09:58 11725 Pacific Daily
09:59 - 12:58 11725 NW Pacific Solomon Isl PNG Mon - Fri
09:59 - 12:58 11725 Pacific Sat Sun
This means the middle block switches to their NNW antenna instead of
the otherwise NNE beam better for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 34, Nov 18 at 1553 UT, BAD signal here is the only
sign of DX in a ch 6-36 bandscan despite not being inside a tropo
blob; most likely KMYT-TV Tulsa, 812.5 kW, than 8 or 9 LPs/translators
around the state (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. Problems getting TOMBS thru WRMI: See U S A

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2060 monitoring, next:

** U S A. WRMI anomalies: 5850, Nov 18 at 0707, S9+30 of dead air
except for big hum instead of TOMBS. I wonder if gone all night? See
below.

5950, Nov 18 at 0709, S9+10 of undermodulated gospel huxter in
Spanish. System F with Fámily Radio in Spanish, WYFR remnant, is now
scheduled at this odd hour daily here on WRMI-5, target SW US &
México, where at least it`s before midnight PST.

9395 & 9455, Nov 18 at 1543, S7/S9+10 of dead air and also 9955 still
radiating at S9+10, i.e. lost feed from Walterboro, still succeeding
onto 9980 WWCR, whew. The other active WRMIs are modulating something
else on 7780, 15770, and probably JBA 21525. Via the Alexandria remote
I keep on 9395, until finally it remodulates TOMBS from 1631.5 during
some other g.h. than BS about the Roman Empire, and also // 9455 and
9980.

7780, Nov 18 at 1602, WRMI-1 in Spanish about Argentina; o yeah, sked
now at very odd time for Germany is RAE in ``German``, a language it
has in fact switched to by 1606 mentioning this very frequency as I am
listening via Virginia SDR which gets it poorly S9 vs noise, but much
better than directly. The three nines are still dead air as above, and
maybe 5950 but too weak to be sure. Key West TWR SDR can`t even hear
it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Nov 18 at 1542, not even a JBA carrier from the WBCQ
Super-station, must be OFF despite registered 14-16 with only 250 kW
at 300 degrees for CIRAF 2 & 3 = western ``Canada``. Back on at 1623
blasting WLC Brit-accented know-it-all gospel huxter now that it`s
supposedly 500 kW at 57 degrees, 16-18 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Nov 18 at 0253, synthyl in French with marine
weather, S8 vs local noise level of S7. Dxinfocenter.ca shows the
latest start among the four Canadian CG stations timesharing 2749 is
0240 from VCS-21, 1500 watts from Halifax, NS but not marked as
bilingual. Nothing heard nor scheduled at this time from Newfoundland
on 2598-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. Andy Robins replies to my non-log of CBC, appended
to my yes-log of Puerto Rico beacon: ``Glenn: Regarding your question
about the non-directional beacon CBC on 415 kHz on Cayman Brac, Cayman
Islands: someone on the NDB List reflector posted a report last week
stating that, per a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen), this beacon has been
"permanently withdrawn" from service. 73, Andy Robins, Kalamazoo,
Michigan USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Nov 18 at 0224, good S9/+10 signal direct from
anonymous mystery missionary station, gospel huxter in Spanish (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. It`s Nov 17 into UT Nov 18, when RHC B-20 changes are finally
supposed to go into effect, according to Arnie, but they have not. Did
he tell the tri-site transmitter operators? Our monitoring:

15370, Nov 17 at 2202, tune in too late to hear the entire Spanish
frequency announcement but I don`t expect it to be brand-new. VG here,
nothing yet on new 13680 supposedly for Europe. Nothing on 11880
supposed to be revived this hour for English to Africa, nor on
previously used 9720 or 7380. Opening `Revista Nuestra América` as
scheduled Mon-Sat at 5-7 pm = 22 UT: at least they have the 5-hour
winter time conversion correct. // 11800 is still on with plus/minus
10 JBA parasites, not 11850; 11760 is overmodulated; // 9535, 9640 not
9650, 5040, 13740. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Further:

5025, Nov 17 at 2235, R. Rebelde is on with OK mod after missing
yesterday, S9+15/25 but less than 5040 RHC at S9+20/30.

6145, Nov 18 at 0109, RHC English is still here and still going by
0100; not on 9700 yet.

4765, Nov 18 at 0223, R. Progreso music is suptorted at S9+30.

5025, Nov 18 at 0225, R. Rebelde music is undermodulated at S9+10.

Don`t you believe this version of the RHC schedule
http://www.radiohc.cu/de-interes/programacion
which is undated but with plenty of long-gone frequencies, like 17580,
17750, 17730, 9850, 9820, 9550, 6165, 6075, 11840; 11670 for English
at 20-21 --- I can`t remember that ever in use. Under that heading I
was looking for a *program* schedule with names and times of
individual shows, but instead it is a far-outdated transmission
schedule. Wake up, ``Webmaster: Reinier Clemente López``, if not also
outdated.

It does show after 22 UT, `Revista Nuestra América`, which quite some
time ago replaced the broader more generic `Revista Informativa de la
Tarde`. ``Our America`` --- is Cuba laying claim to the entire
continent, infecting The Revolution everywhere, i.e. excluding the US
of America? Or is this magazine restricted to info concerning the W
Hemisphere only? If not, why call it that? Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-AM, Nov 18 at 0210-0250+, S7-S8 JBA soft music,
at first piano, no announcements thru 0221 at least, presumably a
pirate; one other unID log of this at:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,74437.0.html
from someone in Alabama, ``unid 6970.07 am 0215 utc 18 Nov 20 « on:
Today at 02:17 » Unid station with music signal that is weak. Thanks
for the show. Signal has drifted to 6969.9 am « Last Edit: Today at
02:20 by blw »``. 6970 is also a 24-hour Sound of Hope + CNR1 jamming
frequency, but format and propagation time are both to the contrary
for both (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Nov 17 at 2233, steady S9+25 of dead air --- surely
it`s VOA Grimesland, having failed to turn off at 2200*. It`s
certainly not VN1 from Vietnam, only thing scheduled in HFCC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490.1v, Tue Nov 17 at 2205, WBCQ poor signal with `AAAWWW`
playback filler; at 2226 reading an article about pioneer station WWJ
Detroit. Oh2, this hour the pioneer hacker show `Off the Hook` from
WBAI is on the websked; what happened? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WRMI observations: 5850, Nov 18 at 0229, is OFF, but back on
with TOMBS when checked at 0410. At 0230, 5800 is nominal; 5950 is JBA
presumed WRMI? But the 7s are ON, with 7780 nominally to the NE now a
surprising S9+20 saying ``Bible Commentary`` but immediately into
Brazuguese; 7730 and 7570 both S9+40 of BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Reply to my hearing WJHR 15555-USB on air again: ``I had,
indeed, been checking periodically. The last time was Sunday (15
November) at around 1630 UT. They weren't back on yet then. -- Richard
Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Nov 18 at 0212 check, WRNO is gone again (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, Nov 18 at 0257 check, S4-S6 of something presumably
WEWN English too high/close/offbeam to propagate well; On Nov 16, Ivo
Ivanov reported that this was OFF the air from 0000 to 0900, but I
wonder if it was just not propagating all the way to Bulgaria (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. Re 6906 ROCV off the air, Manuel Méndez, Spain got this
communique from station in the form of a jpg, which I transcribe as
non-punxuated but at least axentuated:

``COMUNICADO --- Estamos fuera de transmisión Por fallas técnicas y
eléctricas pronto estaremos nuevamente al aire ING Gregorio Kina está
trabajando para solucionar esta problemática`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Nov 18 at
0100-0108: 1575, 1548, 1539, 1521, 1503, 1341, 1314(2), 1305(2),
*1215(2), 1179, 1152(2), 1134(2), 1107(2), 1098(2), 1053, 1044, 999,
981, 936(2), 909, *891, *882(2), 855(2), 837, 819, 801, 774(2), 747,
729, 711, 693, 684(2), 639(2), 621, 612, 585, 567 ?566.4?, 549,
531(2).

I am making a point of surveying these now, altho an hour earlier
would be even better, since recently some signals from ``China`` have
been reported as far as Michigan on 1521 and 1098. With Sa`udi off
1521 after 2230v, any carrier there attracts attention. 1521 at 00-02
UT is CRI via Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of cultural genocide and
ChiCom brainwashing of Uyghurs; in Russian with 500 kW, per EiBi,
first hour to Siberia, second to Central Asia, so presumably with a
beam change around 0100 more favorable to us. There is nothing else in
Eurasia on 1521 over 10 kW. 1098 could be CNR-11 domestic service in
Tibetan, 1000 kW from Golmud altho there are several lesser
possibilities. * = strongest signals during this check; (2) = at least
two carriers beating. 566.4 could be a local birdie; no such variants
known. Of course I am unlikely to get any identifiable language audio,
but I keep doing this to confirm that at least remnants of all these
stations do penetrate so deep into North America (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
