Wednesday, September 21 2022

Hauser
** CUBA. 6100, Sept 20 at 0632, RHC English at S9+10/20 of just barely
modulation; 6165, 6000 and 5040 are off, leaving only 6060 with a
sufficient S9/+10 signal yet undermodulated with hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 20 at 2152, R. Cairo manages to get on air,
but S9+25/35 into UTwente of hum and extreme distortion in presumed
English. Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 20 at 0630, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati.
Gary Pence, TX, has also been checking this via remote:

``Hi Glenn, I was using SDR NH6XO, Kaneohe, Hawaii when I caught them
in their local sunset enhancement, better waterfall with visible audio
besides the usual JBA carrier then it took a deeper fade that seems to
be common that I have run across in my MW DXing. I Recorded a little
and no side splatter directly on the sides, around 0428z Sept 20,
2022. Every time I have checked 846, a thin line showed up on the
Kiwi, so to my amazement I was surprised to see some modulation in the
waterfall and could hear it a little better. After about 10 minutes,
the big fade hit. To really explore this sunset enhancement, I need to
start listening just before sunset around 0345z or sooner until their
sunset around 0428z. I read a story how somebody in Hawaii had
armchair copy from across the room back in the day. CuL, Gary`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 20 at 0631, VON on with S9/+10 of dead air.
Well, that`s something, awkward at Abuja. Did not get to check their
evening today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 15375, Sept 20 at 1454, S8/S9 of heavy rock vocal music,
Turkish talk and more music past 1500, one of better signals on band,
so I bet it`s VOT: yes, 13-16, 500 kW at 310 degrees toward W Europe
and here are we beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.021, Sept 20 at 2154, VOT already on in Tuerkiyeish
talk not scheduled now, S9+45 into UTwente, 2155 IS starts with
Engliyeish IDs, but suptorted and with loud hum, 2220 commentary about
QE2 by someone with an Engliyeish name. Suspect same transmitter as
for Tuerkiyeish at 16-21 on same parameters 500 kW at 310 degrees
USward. Wonder if it stayed on after 2100. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
September 20 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR, already
vs considerable pulse jamming but listenable past 2250 if you put up
with it. Likewise for R. Libertad after 2300, but maybe harsher
dentro-Cuba. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
1100 UT Wednesday Unique Radio webcast [5035/3210 USB suspended]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Sept 20 at 0640, S7/S9 of dead air, must be WRMI, but
#10 is now scheduled to quit 5800 at 0400, while #4 is also labeled
5800 but 24/7 of blank. Running 100 kW units after hours must be bad
for the power bill, or maybe there is some reason for testing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 20 circa 0630 quick check for R. Vanuatu still
finds nothing: need to be more persistent like Ron Howard, same
date:

``Strange happenings! On 7932, happen to hear Radio Vanuatu for maybe
10-15 seconds before cutting off at about 0522 UT. Seemed they were
maybe working on repairing the xmtr without attempting to correct the
situation of being off frequency? Went to randomly check 8620+, after
0559 UT; yes, at about 0653 they came on with Island music for maybe
another 10-15 seconds; checked after 0653 for a straight hour, but
they never came back at all. Today heard for probably less than 30
seconds! Ron, Asilomar State Beach, Calif. (near Monterey), Etón E1,
external antenna: 100 ft. long wire`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 15189.89 approx., Sept 19 at 2353, JBA S2/S3 Portuguese,
obviously the always off-frequency and always very weak only ZY left
active on 19m, R. Inconfidência, Belo Horizonte (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 18 at 0632, this RHC English is unusually still
on, along with 6100, 6165; but 6060, 5040 are off. Each night, each
hour, a different random combination? Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Sept 19 at 2347, RHC S7/S9 but JBM barely recognizable
as English, with big hum. NOT // 5040 as scheduled this hour only,
well modulated, loud music, Spanish // 11760 etc. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 19 at 2129, NO signal from R. Cairo, English
into UTwente. Something`s amiss at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INTERNATIONAL ATMOSPHERE [non]. News of hurricane Fiona hitting PR,
blacking out entire island, leads me to the Hurricane Watch Net on
14325 USB, via Boca Ratón FL SDR, Sept 18 at 2043, current NCS W2NNU.
Apparently changes NCS each hour? At 2100 it`s K5WAN declaring that
this is a ``directed net`, i.e., follow the orders of the NCS. Reads
latest warnings from National Hurricane Center in Miami: seemingly
repeating every few minutes, or maybe with slight updating. Too much
else is going on Sunday afternoons for me to render this my undivided
attention. Periodically calls for anyone from PR or vicinity to check
in but never heard any. Is that a positive or negative result? Glad
SDR has squelch, never needed for broadcast monitoring. 2205, partial
NCS call as --WCN. 2306 fluent but slightly accented Spanish versions
of NHC notices. Not much heard later, maybe net QSY to 40m by 0000?
7268 LSB, not checked. Call-area numbers no longer mean anything:

W2NNU USA flag USA
JAMES W W WILMERDING
816 Highway 51 South NE
Brookhaven, MS 39601 USA
Lots of info about his background:

K5WAN USA flag USA
Wendell A Neal

Covington, GA 30014 USA

Says he is former storm tracker for KOTV 6 Tulsa

Next day, Mon Sept 19 by 2330, no activity on 14325 despite Fiona
still churning from DR to T&C; how about HWN on 7268-LSB? Very active
at 2340, but some other net as if they own the frequency, ``3905
Century Club`` ``for WAS and DX records``. NCS ending in -GWS taking
numerous check-ins and greets them by handle; net not formally
starting until 2400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 19 at 0626, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati,
resumed Monday after silent Sunday. Shows what only 10 kW on MW can
accomplish over 4500 miles, if only on a clear frequency, audible just
about every night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Sept 19 at 0641, again NO signal from
VON, but not totally inactive:

7254.933, Sept 19 at 1730 into Canary SDR, signature offset VON
carrier is on at S7/9+5, but mostly squeal with trace of unreadable
programodulation, and 2ACI from much stronger 7265, CRI Russian via
Urumqi, East Turkistan, std denunciation, 1732 with horse clip/clop
SFX in dramatic narration, maybe about Mongols conquering Europe?
Watch out. 7255- totally off by 1743 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9700, Sept 18 at 2356, RRI IS S7/9+10 into Boca FL SDR
until 2357.6*, so presumably my unID OC, 48+ hours ago, concluding RRI
Spanish hour via Tsiganeshti. People keep misspelling it ``Tiganesti``
without the necessary diacritix for which I substitute fonetikaly thus
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday Sept 19 at 2200, token English from REE. News
with Amy, too much sports with Hélena; 2211 Justin introduces a
15-minute book-launching talk in 2020y by Carissa Véliz of Prihvacy is
Power, as in: https://www.carissaveliz.com/books VG into Maryland SDR
and other three also audible, 15520, 11940, 11670 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.007, Sept 19 at 2223, VOT English, VG S9+45 into
UTwente only a very light squeal, amid `Feeling Supreme` with teas to
drink countering diabetic insulin resistance. After some music, 2353
std s/off with schedule, a bit of IS to 2355*, no extra German (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, Sept 19 at 0500, WRMI starts UR1 relay as
usual but all UU talk, no English `Ukraine: Security Issue` by when I
quit at 0513, as latest editions also missing from podcasts. But
Richard Langley replies at 1427 UT Sept 19:

``It is there now. As far as the airing on WRMI is concerned, I didn't
do my usual Sunday evening recording of 7730 kHz as I'm in Denver this
week for a conference, so have no confirmation if it aired then.
However, I automatically record Radio Baltic Waves International on
1386 kHz each evening at midnight UTC using the U. Twente SDR receiver
and my UNB desktop computer. "Ukraine: security issue" started at
about 00:13 UTC today (19 September). It was the same edition as that
on the website for 18 September.``

So maybe started on WRMI just as I gave up. Now monitoring the last
three issues. They are no longer announcing at the start the date or
warday number:

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_16_09_22.mp3
For Sept 16: Over 9 minutes, including: IAEA demands R stop occupation
of Zap. NPP. Up to 1000 dead in Izium, twice that of Bucha and other
cities destroyed. Must exhume each body. R fired into Dnep. region,
civilian targets, hydraulic struxures. Pres. of Euro Comm. visited,
Pres Z spoke with her about reaxions to R terror. USA SOS Blinken also
visited. More than 300 energy facilities destroyed in U, thermal power
plants. High risers will have to evacuate with no heat. R attacked Z`s
hometown to demoralise him. U understands what must be done. R tries
to blow up international sanxions. R sent $ 300 million to other
countries. R not understand U mentality, leading to its defeat. U
people back the leadership. Only 8% favor giving up territory for
peace.

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_17_09_22.mp3
For Sept 17, including: UN sending team to investigate war crimes,
Izium tortured bodies. Must recognize R as terrorist state. Whole
families buried, more than 400 so far exhumed. Civilians also died
from cold, hunger. Baby spent most of life in basement. Survived on
honey, cheese, mother`s milk. Illegal prison in another town, Kharkiv
region. R war crimes everywhere. At least 389 U chilldren killed, 756
injured during war. Putin could withdraw troops with one phone call.
Far from reality.

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_18_09_22.mp3
For Sept 18, YL with heavy accent, including: 59 bodies exhumed at
Izium, civilian and military, evidence of torture. Will take at least
two weeks. hashtag: #iziummassacre. Someone was ``electrocuted`` for
40 minutes, but apparently survived. R doing what Nazis did. Electric
torture tools found in railway station. Defining genocide. R trying to
destroy U identity. Major artist killed, was volunteer. Bit of a song.
Neighboring countries say no land should be ceded. WaPo says EU
funding to Hungary should be suspended (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St.
Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio:
JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees, Dear
Glenn:
World of Radio, monitoring and confirming the latest for #2155, #2156,
9955 kHz, listen creek fm/stream internet.

9/11, 21 years ago, Sunday, Sep 11, 2022. Friday evening, barbecue
attended and restaurant Sunday evening, 60th Anniversary at CIDX
gathering in Sherwood Park and Lamont, Sep 16-18, 2022. I had a
spectacular time despite only nine or ten at the most showing up,
still great time seeing memory lane slide show, even seeing how much
hair I had way back when. Interviews were recorded in the
International Radio Report recent show, Richard. WRMI:

[2155:] 5850, QSB fading, jamming [??], moderate static, 0133, 0151
(55333-4), 0159, Sep 9 UTC 2022 [Fri]
9395, QRN, QSB fading, 0031, 0043, 0059 (45343), Sep 13 UTC [Tue]
5850, 1032 (55434), Sep 14 UTC 2022 [Wed]
9395, QSB fading, shockwave [??], 0030, 0043, 0058, 0059, Sep 15 [Thu]
[2156:] 5850, moderate static and jamming [??], 0130, 0137, 0144
(55344-3), 0159, Sep 16 UTC 2022 [Fri] (Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Correcting this item which I misplaced onto 6160- instead of 5130-:
Also confirmed UT Saturday September 17 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela,
5130 minus 25 Hz into Maryland SDR = 5129.975, S9+10.

Confirmed Sunday September 18 at 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz,
Villa Estense, Italy, S9+10/15 into nearby Noale SDR, atop
understation of talk and music making a medium SAH. Is Romania still
on? If not, that leaves Iran or Tanzania, even later into their
nights. OR among the total 1360 kW from Chinas. Not on 918, where it
should have been, with no QRM. Trace of algo talk on LW 207, probably
not me, Iceland or mix? 2037 recheck, familiar theme and `Counterspin`
starting, a show which deserves explicit regular scheduling.

WOR 2156 also confirmed UT Monday September 19 at 0030 on WRMI 7780,
S9/+15 into Boca Ratón SDR I already have running for HWN. I would
expect it to be in the awkward skip zone from most Okeechobees.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 19 from 0304 since JL ran over
again, S9 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160 - 63 Hz = 6159.937 into Maryland
SDR.

Also confirmed UT Tuesday September 20 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20
into Maryland SDR, right after Jeff White intervention, ``Right now
the world is in turmoil...`` Is that the Tecsun SW radio ad? Next:

2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
1100 UT Wednesday Unique Radio webcast [5035/3210 USB suspended]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 9330.1v, Monday Sept 19 at 1441 check, WLCR/WBCQ is gone
again after a Sunday morning revival (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.9v, Monday Sept 19 at 2338, S9+15, WBCQ, Greek? and/or
similar music, certainly no longer `Camp Constitution Radio` far-right
politix; fill? Or UBMP? It still shows as 23-24 UT tho it would be a
neat trick to run that and CCR at same time 2330-2400 as still on the
never-up-to-date program schedule, with all EDT conversion times
mislabeled as EST. Did not check at 2300, since last week, the real
semi-UBMP repeat had been replaced by a new gospel huxter (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540.24 approx., Sept 20 at 0000 UT, het to 1540 stations.
Bet it`s WKVQ, Eatonton, Georgia, still/again way off frequency as I
was often hearing it last year, even all-night; and just reported
again by several, ranging 1540.241 to .247:
https://groups.io/g/mwoffsets/topic/93742683#673
Here it seems to have gone off shortly after tune-in. FCC AM Query is
erroring out, but looks as if official sunset in September should be
2345 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. Re RV registered 2485, thus possible harmonix, Ron Howard
replies: ``Hi Glenn - Regularly I do check 2485, as I have heard RV
there in the past, but certainly not heard recently. 2020 audio is at
https://app.box.com/s/9cn4yyt71n1meom6e6ivfha8olqh7626
Ron (California)`` 1015-1018+ UT March 5, vs HNL.

7890, 7932, still unheard Sept 19 circa 0635, nor 8620 at 0705 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7879.577v, Sept 19 at 0634 open carrier, maybe Vanuatu I
am looking for, not on ex-7890? No, soon goes into utebeeps, switch to
7880.42 or so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 6100, Sept 18 at 0637, RHC English is S9 of dead air; 6165
S9+10/20 just barely modulated = JBM; 6060 S9 and undermodulated, only
usable channel, 5040 off while 5025 Rebelde is on. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 18 at 0712, not even a JBA carrier from
R. Kiribati, presumed regular Sunday night silence (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, Sept 17 at 2300, Die Stimme Türkiye opening
spurious German hour after IS and TS, not turned off after Englisch;
alleges 15350 which is the real frequency for German at 1130; also at
1730 on 9840. Sleepyop awakens and turns it off already at 2307*. Was
S9+55! into UTwente, and there remains a very weak JBA AM sync also at
+003 Hz, i.e. CNR1 Beijing site scheduled until 0100. Also uncovers
RTTY warble from NAU PR on USB only. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE. As of 1930 UT Sept 18, the latest `Ukraine: Security
Issue` at http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/ua_security_issue is still dated
15.09. Forcing link changes to 16.09 and 17.09 get 404. Need to check
whether still updated daily at 0500 on UR1 via WRMI 7730 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
September 17 concluding at 2041.2 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+15 into
nearby SDR, so started way later than 1930v, circa 2012.

Also confirmed UT Sunday September 18 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10
into Maryland SDR; never a dull moment: siren intervenes for a few
seconds between ID and WOR start.

Also confirmed UT Sunday September 18 at 0330 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
about 10 minutes into so started circa 0320 UT, S8/S9 into Knoxville
SDR, S9+15 into nearby Warrenton MO SDR, both vs high storm noise
level = HSNL. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

** U S A. 9330.15 approx., Sept 18 at 1508, WLCR/WBCQ English is on at
S7/9+10, perhaps a Sunday exception from usual contrary to scheduling
silence before and after 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Sept 18 at 1435, WRMI-9 is back on but VP after
missing yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Sept 18 at 0639, RCM, WEWN still silent. Steven Luce
replied Sept. 16: ``Glenn, regarding WEWN on 5970: I did several
checks between 12 and 14 UT September 16, and it appears they are on
5970 continuously during that time span. Carrier cut at 1356; quickly
retuned to 12050 and found the IS already going. Nothing from WEWN on
5970 at a check just before 1100. I have not been hearing WEWN on 5970
during checks around 0300. I did hear them signing on at 0000 a couple
of weeks ago; might be worth checking 5970 during the 00 to 03 time
span to see if they have kept some of the evening schedule on SW.
Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 15610, Sept 18 at 1437, S9 of Arabish? talk = high
noise level. This was once all-day English frequency of WEWN, then
reduced not to start before 1900 as still in HFCC Sept 18; then gone
completely. Listed now at 14-15 is VOA Kurdish via BOTSWANA this hour
only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 18 at 0636, still no signal from R. Vanuatu.
In the continuing absence of RV, note that a fundamental long
registered in HFCC but unused, is 2485, 10 kW at 10-19 UT. Some very
interesting possible harmonix of that, worth checking even before
1000: 4970, 7455, 9940, 12425, 14910, 17395 ...

Ron Howard reported: ``VANUATU[non-log]. 8620+, Radio Vanuatu,
checking 0830+ UT, no signal heard on any of the past or current
frequencies! We can only hope that they are working now on repairing
the xmtr! Yesterday (16th) I did some extensive scanning of various
frequencies after 0940+, when I found they were off the air, thinking
perhaps they had jumped to another frequency, but did not find them!``

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sept 17 from 1440 into Argentine SDR,
nothing until *1453, LRA36 cuts on with VG signal during song, and
another before 1500.6 usual sign-on routine I`ve detailed many times
before, 1502 Esperanza themesong; 1505.6 brief poetic discourse;
1506.7 percussive song; 1511 ID and `live` YLs into the 20th or 21st
program of the season, something about Día del Maestro and school #38?
at the base. Now I`m sure this is playback of Wed Sept 14 show and
altho I might garner a few more details this time, I am about to quit
-- just when, after geo coördinates are cited, it dumps off the air
already at 1513.6*. Still off at 1540 and typically not expected to
resume (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 1010, CFRB Toronto: further discussion to my logs:

``Richard Lacroix, somewhere in Canada: ``Not entirely correct with
regards to the CFRB 1010 pattern.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CFRB
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/finder?sr=Y&s=C&call=CFRB&nav=home
The station does have a day and night time pattern. The only
difference is that it is a 50 kW day and night "clear channel station"
(Class A). Operations began in 1927. The towers are all but a few
miles away from Lake Ontario and as such have a clear unobstructed
path.``

gh: ``You do not explain how the day and night patterns differ. Take a
look at them via radio-locator.
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=CFRB&service=AM&s=F&h=D
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=CFRB&service=AM&s=F&h=N

``Night pattern has a null toward WINS, day pattern does not. Mr Zuk
near NYC says CFRB interference is intolerable at night, therefore
concludes day pattern is in use. What a station axually does, not
necessarily correlates with they are licensed/supposed to do. Glenn``

Andy Reid: ``In Peterborough, ON, Newstalk 1010 is totally
unlistenable after dark because of WINS. 1010 was (is?) a Canadian
clear channel. I read in the past that WINS had to seek special
permission to use the frequency. It should never have been allowed if
that was the case.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 13809.946, Sept 17 at 1525, two signals few Hz
apart making a LAH, the stronger one in Chinese, likely the CNR1
jammer vs RFA Mandarin via TAJIKISTAN scheduled this bihour (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Sept 16 at 2344, R. Rebelde is off, tsk2, the #1
domestic network of The Revolution; good for Quillabamba, anyway if on
and can be pulled, nothing heard now. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba. 5040 RHC stays on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9657.9 & 9642.1, Sept 16 at 2348, suspicious JBA carriers,
both exactly 7.9 kHz from S9+35 9650 RHC, therefore surely spurs from
that. Yay! Whee! Not every day one discover a new RHC spur setup.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Sept 17 at 0611, only RHC English still on this band`s
air, VG S9+30, but also 5040 S9+20/30 slightly distorted
overmodulation; about the ILO`s position on slavery. Natch,
DentroCubans under the yoke of Commie tyranny are not considered
slaves. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 16 at 2144 & 2200 chex via UTwente, NO signal
in English from Cairo. NO loss, either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7255-, Sept 17 at 0605, VON still AWOL; how about
alternates? 9690 nil; 11769.16V JBA carrier probably local birdie
further down than VON would be. Are they totally inactive again?:

7255, Sept 17 at 1749, no signal into Canary SDR, just trace of
imperialist ChiCom-occupied Tibet. 9690 nothing except ACI splatter
from CRI listed on both sides; 11770 strong in Chinese, i.e. PBS
Xinjiang, Urumqi in imperialist ChiCom-occupied East Turkistan, land
of genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Sept 16 at 2343, only pirate now with rock
music, S5 vs S7 storm crashes, ``smoke another cigarette`` is also
off-putting; music thru TOH into Sept 17, no ID then. Still on at 0044
vs HSNL, and past 0137, not necessarily single station with all those
gaps. Yes, R. Free Whatever per many reports here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,101973.0.html
ranging from *2259 to 0206*; also link to livestream:
https://radiofreewhatever.mixlr.com/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.4 AM, Sept 16 at 2354 UT, Enid CB pirate still
relaying // 95.7 KXLS ``Lahoma`` undermmodulatedly but steadily S9+7,
now as they are just starting coverage of a local stupid ballgame;
it`s Friday evening, after all.

27184.5 AM, Sept 17 at 1530 check, on again with same station relayed
into a SWBC, only S9 on another receiver (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Sept 16 at 2200, token English from REE previews
feature after news to be interview with someone from a fancy hotel in
Madrid known for hosting celebs. Pass. Anyway, VG into Maryland SDR so
other frequencies not explored either.

17855, Sat Sept 17 at 1529, REE is on much earlier weekends, only
S9/+10 with silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15150.019, Sept 17 at 1518 uncertain language,
S7/S9 and soon mentions Turkey? But this hour is R. Tamazuj from
Netherlands via MADAGASCAR, presumably in Juba Arabic dialect. Much
greater signal than 15140 RHC. Nearby single-hop propagation degraded
and/or underpowered (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.003, VOT S9+25/35 into UTwente, usual `hard` news,
commentary, press review at first, finally 2220 Sept 16 always
enjoyable Tuerkiyeish music. 2225 `Feeling Supreme` subtitle now
sounds like ``healing spring``?? A repeat about natural remedies for
head lice, starting with mixing vinegar and water in a bowel --- I
think he means bowl? Heh heh, often good for unintentional ESL humour.
Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE. (7730), UR1 via WRMI at 0500 `Ukraine: Security Issue`:
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_15_09_22.mp3

For Sept 15, 8+ minutes, date and warday not cited, including:
Pres Z visited liberated city of Izium. Prosecutors sending
investigators of war crimes. Will be tribunal. R aggressors cannot
establish services necessary to life in occupied areas. War crime
cases documented from words of witnesses and victims. Fate of many
unknown. Tortures with electric current, women sleeping on floor, wires
to hidden cameras found. Rocket attax on Z`s hometown. 8 cruise
missiles destroyed dam. Houses floooded. International partners should
help. Time to strike final blow against Evil Empire. Numbers of U
children killed and injured. Feature film about Bucha Feb-April.
Citizen of Kazakhstan helped. World should know aboout this genocide.
Starts shooting in Dec.

Webpage says [sic: russia does not deserve to be capitalized]:
``Actual news about the russian-Ukrainian war. Every day, Ukrainian
Radio prepares a digest of the most important news about the
russian-Ukrainian war in the format of short podcast. We offer only
reliable information from confirmed sources: reports on the course of
the war, coverages from cities attacked by russia, as well as news
about life in the home front regions of Ukraine. If you want to be
aware of the situation in Ukraine, but do not have time to read the
news all day – the “Ukraine: security issue” is for you.`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2156 monitoring: confirmed Friday
September 16 at 2030 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S7 into
Trieste SDR, S9/+10 into Wels, Austria, but noisier.

Also confirmed UT Saturday September 17 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela,
6160 minus 25 Hz into Maryland SDR = 6159.975, S9+10.

Tim Gaynor says the Unique Radio, Australia, webcast if not SW
broadcast of WOR at 0700 UT - and IRR at 0730 Saturdays, are now on
Sundays at 0800 & 0830 UT. Since IRR is originally several hours later
on Sundays, its initial UR airing would have to wait until Wed at
1130. Since WOR is originally on Thu, the Wed 1100 on UR would be
almost a week old. And: ``Streaming on low bitrate AAC+ for a bit till
I sort out a better internet connection and also the shortwave
licenses will be transferred in due course.`` Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, UT Sat Sept 17 from 0000, WBCQ with `AAAWWW`, initial
interjexions among WTO, ``gotta pay attention, vote `em out``, but
first subject not so political, all about ancient recording methods,
i.e. cutting and stamping disc records. He has some old gear to do
that. 0004, ``extremely analog here``. CBC somewhere proudly has a
brand-new state-of-the-art-totally-digital facility. Says he is in
Master Control, guess that means Monticello rather than DeLand of Fla.
Angela sounds like she`s remote on a phone. Recheck at 0030, about fun
of kit-building. His father used to get him a new Heathkit as soon as
school was out in the summer. Missed the rest; did anyone overhear any
signif info about station ops? Per twit a few hours earlier, he
predicted this would be on 3265 besides the usual 3; could not hear it
when I checked it before 0000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 17 at 1527, yet again WLCR/WBCQ absent (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Sept 17 at 1522, NO signal from WRMI-9. Propagation
may be degraded but surely at least a trace if on. 15825 WWCR is JBA
carrier, which is normal without Es. 1830 recheck via Maryland SDR,
still definitely NO 15770 - a major loss with variety of programming.
Nothing about this on disgraced FB. Ops normal otherwise, at 1849
confirmed on into Maryland SDR: 9955, 9455, 9395, and JBA carrier on
21525 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932 & 8620 & 7890, Sept 17 at 0644, NO R. Vanuatu on
previously or recently employed second harmonix. Gary Pence agrees,
after Ron Howard found 8620+ disappeared during Sept 16. But now we
need to do exhaustive continuous band searches before and after 0700
in case it have jumped to a totally new constellation (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9700, Sept 16 at 2350, S9+20/30 of open carrier/dead
air; something warming up for *0000? Nothing sked then per Aoki but
RRI Spanish from Tsiganeshti is supposed to be here until 2357*. And
would you believe RHC English at 0100-0700 on 9700? Aoki and EiBi both
do! Never seen reported lately but will have to check for it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 5040, 6000 & 6165, Sept 16 at 0617, all these RHC English are
off already; 6140 with JBA carrier leapfrog mixing product of 6060
over 6100; while 6100 itself is S9+10 and JBM in Spanish! 6060 the
only English, S9+20/30 with hum. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Sept 16 at 1436, RHC Spanish S9+10/20, VG modulation
but NO spurblobs +/- 70v kHz now, nor any heard for many weeks in
almost daily chex. In fairness I point out that in this case,
nothing`s wrong with RHC. But I`m sure they`ll appear again sometime
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 11590, Sept 16 at 1442, good S7/S9 signal in Turkic language
with Russian influence, tnx to keywords ``radyosu`` and ``kiloGertz``.
Conveying contact info with P O Box in HK?, some letters pronounced in
English, eventually ``TWR``. Uplooked later, it`s KTWR in Kazakh at
1430-1445 daily with ``Do You Know`` program per Aoki; follows Uighur
at 1400-1430 Mon-Thu only. WRTH files TWR Asia under SINGAPORE. Kazakh
in HFCC as 250 kW at 305 degrees, way offbeam thisaway (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** IRAN. 9640, Sept 16 at 1450, S5/S7 in Arabic as I recognize a key
phrase. Listed is VIRI in Arabic from Sirjan at 1430-1730. HFCC shows
500 kW at 216 degrees for CIRAF 39 = Sa`udi Arabia. Long path? Way
offbeam either way to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 16 at 0638, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7255-, Sept 16 at 0624, NO signal direct from VON.
Nor Sept 16 at 1718-1755+ into Canary SDR, only JBA nearly
on-frequency, no doubt ChiCom-occupied TIBET (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9980, Sept 16 at 1453, blasting S9+20/30
signal from WWCR-4 with really nice bluegrass banjo hymn about
Calvary. I axually pause to listen to TOMBS for a change, followed by
another bluegrass thru ToH with no talk at all except WWCR ID overlay.
Not sure it`s really TOMBS, but seems // VP 9455 WRMI never
synchronized. 9980 is almost 100% TOMBS at 1200-2400 except for
`Financial Survival` M-F at 20-21. Make that: 94% (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** UKRAINE. (7730), UR1 via WRMI circa 0500, `Ukraine: Security Issue`
as copied later from archive:

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_12_09_22.mp3
For Sept 12 = day 200 of war, including: drove out occupiers from over
20 settlements. Freeing area double the size of greater London since
last Wed. Z not ready to nego with Putin. World feared R Fed, not any
more, lots of weapons provided. Germany and France earlier made
mistake inviting R to participate in Europe. Thousands would have been
saved if U were armed earlier. Appeasement does not work. Integration
of U into NATO and EU must be fast-tracked. Europe prepared to enter
heating season without serious issues. R earning more on energy than
spending on war, 160 vs 100 gigadollars. 53% of German citizens
willing to sacrifice more. Nine ships left Odesa ports with grain. 122
total have left U for abroad. R deporting Us to far parts of R.

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_13_09_22.mp3
For Sept 13 over 9 minutes, longest yet. No date or warday stamp. km
retaken from R control. Z believes U will defend to the end. Interview
with Fareed Zakaria. Zap NPP final reactor 6 shut down reducing risk
of nuke disaster but still high. Zone must be demilitarized. Fallout
cloud could reach neighboring countries. R incapable of fighting on
battlefield, rather vs civilians. R sending missiles to destroy
civilian infrastruxure, cowardly. Estonian PM says warcrime by R.
Liberated territories being cleaned up after war crimes, tortured
bodies discovered. Kherson, R seized two hotels, burglarized houses. U
intends to seek $ 300 blllion resparatons from R, not enouogh. Any R
gold and foreign exchange reserves should be handed over to U.
International agreements needed to allow this thru other countries. U
war stories game developed.

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_14_09_22.mp3
For Sept 14, no date or day cited. Z says R behaves like international
terrorist. At least 1000 citizens killed in city near Kharkov during R
occupation. Hope not as bad as Bucha. Women tortured electrically.
Appeal to mothers of the world to rise up against Putin. Need more
military aid from international partners. R violates all intermational
conventions in treatment of U POWs. R violates norms of Geneva
Convention. Amnesty International in scandal, whitewash R genocide
against U (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Confirmed first SWBCs, UT Friday September 16 at 0130 on WRMIs, after
gospel huxter cut off at 0129.5 for ID, and some beeps before WOR:
7730, S9+10/20; 5850, S9/S8 both into Maryland remote. Once again BBB
steps on my last few words of closing at 0159, with two canned ID
sequences in a row.

Also confirmed, UT Friday September 16 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9 but
noisy into Maryland SDR, way off SW azimuth. But plays to conclusion
without overlap at 0159.

Also confirmed Friday September 16 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S8/9+10
direct, no jamming.

As expected on the third Friday of the month WOR confirmed NOT on IRRS
7290 or AM Italia 1323, at 1815 UT September 16. In past this hour has
been pre-empted for `Station of the Cars` rock music -- never shown as
such on the NEXUS-IBA program schedule -- but not this month. Missed
start of show with name, monitoring via nearby Noale SDR, on 1323 but
which also gets 7290 from Bulgaria, vs heavy storm noise around NE
Italy, as always?? 918 kHz is not on this time. Feature Story News, UN
News and various other filler fragments 1800-1815 & 1844-1900 are not
on either this week.

At first, 1323 is way under Romania`s minority service in German. The
IRRS show is some Christian discussion, pro-Jesus, anti-one-World,
etc. Gives address in Troy MI 48007. 1831 Diabetes PSA from Ad Council
involving reverse speaking; maybe changing sources now, mentions
American Prospect, and ID for 90.1, WUSB Stony Brook, LINY, time as 6
pm Tuesday, music fill; 1842 `Off the Wall` starts, leftish political
discussion by hackers, pre-primary or runoff of 8/23. See
https://www.wusb.fm/node/15993 I suspect like so much other filltime,
IRRS is just pulling programming off the web, perhaps without request
or knowledge by the originators.

Meanwhile, UTwente is getting second harmonic 14580 better than usual,
S5. 7290 cuts off at 1857*; 1323 seems still going with German QRM,
1859 ``IRRS Shortwave [sic] signing off`` and Verdi theme, in clear
after 1900 tone from Romania and off. I`ve asked IRRS whether WOR will
resume next Friday at 1815 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 16 at 1447, yet again the WBCQ SuperStition is
off rather than World`s Last Chancing, zero signal into Enid boresight
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7932+, Sept 16 at 0620, R. Vanuatu, music, S5 vs CODAR
swirshes peaking S8. Could not stay awake past 0700 to check 8620 and
the other set of frequencies, but Ron Howard reports from California:

``8620+, Radio Vanuatu, 0858+ UT. ID and local time ("8 o'clock");
into monologue in Bislama. Checking from 0940+, found RV had gone off
the air; no signal heard on any of the past or current frequencies!``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 650, Sept 16 at 0638 UT, WSM with music, but
considerable QRM from something else, unusual. Suspect some other US
station like KGAB out of whack at night, but clear at next check a few
minutes later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12025, Sept 16 at 1445, S7/S9 open carrier. Only listee
in EiBi & Aoki at 14-15 is CRI Chinese via Urumqi Hutu, EAST
TURKISTAN, land of imperialist Chinese genocide against Uyghurs and
other Moslems. Or maybe a closer ute? Or BBC warming up Singapore for
1500+ English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
