Hauser
** BRAZIL. 11905-11910-11915, Feb 24 at 0338 and earlier chex this
hour, RNA DRM noise JBA via Bonaire SDR, but waterfall shows it`s
there as the SSOB and virtually the OSOB on 25m. Only S5 and will not
even start to decode partially. Is it propagation, or a reduxion in
parameters? Was not getting it last night either (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CRIMEA. 5916.0-CW, Feb 24 at 0313, bandscanning 49/50 mb via TWR
Bonaire SDR, I hit upon some automated CW here QRMing weak broadcast
music station on 5915.0, presumably Zambia. Never caught an ID but may
have been one a few minutes later when switched to hand-keyed? EiBi
has the answer: Russian navy, RCV, 24 hours from se site for SE
Europe, i.e. ``Sevastopol 44N56-34E28``, which is really in Crimea,
its major port, not Russia; and in both Ukrainian and Russian the name
ends with a soft-sign, so append that apostrophe! Sevastopol`. It`s
the largest city in Krim, and not to be confused with the
second-largest but capital, Simferopol`, which used to host
(disinformation?) a R. Moscow transmitter site. And what does the
-opol` suffix mean?

BTW, I can`t help but notice that this Bonaire KiwiSDR altho above
average in most respects, suffers from some local noise blobs
especially on this band, which I find peaking roughly 15 kHz wide,
like 5812-5827, 5876-5885, 5942-5958, 6010-6025, 6076-6091, 6140-6155,
i.e.. about 65 kHz intervals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Feb 23 at 1539, RHC is S9 fading to S1 but just barely
modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13836 S2 F# tone, 13768 best, 13633 S3, Feb 23 at 1540,
spurblobs out of 13700-AM which is S8-S9 but JBM like 15140, ending
`Sonido Cubano` music show. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Feb 24 at 0006 and still 0020, Spanish is still on
despite European service supposed to run 2100-2400* only per EiBi, and
so it`s // 13740, nominally 2200-0500 for S America; but both VG
signals here. Something`s always wrong at RHC. I was checking 13750
for R. Thailand English to North America, but ha2, JBA as always
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds,
to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1509.837 approx., Feb 24 at 0159 UT, big het tuned to
1510-AM, no doubt caused by KCTE Independence MO, as discussed at
length last time, which thinx it`s OK to be a daytimer at night and
off-frequency to boot? Well, yes, if it weren`t OK, the FCC would have
caught and fined them multiple times in the past decade, right? This
time I get the frequency by zero-beating (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1539.96 approx., Feb 24 at 0250 UT, usual low audible het to
1540.0 stations such as KXEL. Not as bad/off as KCTE three channels
lower, but just as obvious and persistent, altho not always, KGBC
Galveston TX per numerous previous logs; no idea about current format
as this be its DX claim to fame (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Marginal tropo enhancement around here to Wichita KS, tnx to
big warmup, Enid hi predicted 71F today Feb 23 after deepfreeze last
week. Less than 200 km, to broken antenna starting at 1626 UT, I get
lots of BAD signals mostly correlating with Wichita area: RF 10, 12,
20, 21, 22, 26, 28, 30, 34; and two decoding, lineups all matching
rabbitears.info:

RF 15 [tnx to prolonged absence of KTBO OKC]:
3-1, KSNW-DT with NBC Today
3-2, T`Mundo [=Telemundo with an apostrophe]
3-3, ION [for now]
3-4, TCN [True Crime Network]

RF 31, CoL Derby KS
31-1, KDCU-DT [Spanish, = Derby, Cansas, Univision]
31-2, Grit
31-3, Escape [lower right bug: Mystery]
31-4, Laff
31-5, Court

** CUBA. 13568-trace, 13633, 13766 S7-S9, 13833, Feb 22 at 1524. FMish
spurblobs at 66-67 kHz intervals, with F# tone out of 13700-AM music;
something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Feb 22 at 2110, S9+10/20 of dead air instead of
European service. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 23 at 0309, is S7-S9 of dead air in Spanish;
something`s always wrong at RHC. But 6060 is Spanishing with rather
poor signal, while 9535 & 9650 are inaudible with K-index of 4 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5910, Feb 23 at 0316, CRI Plus in suptorted English relay at
S9/+30, but almost sufficient with volume up and close attention.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 6179.944, Feb 23 at 0311, S8-S9 of Aleluya hymn,
``Radiodifusora Cristiana Mundial presenta ---``, i.e. World Christian
Broadcasting, not the other TN station, and quite off-frequency. How
do you say ``worldwide`` in Spanish as opposed to merely ``world``?
Mundial already implies the greater -wide, and can`t be diminished as
an adjective (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2074 monitoring: confirmed Monday
February 22 until 1929:40 on IRRS 7290 Bulgaria, tuned in just in time
via UTwente SDR having missed the start which should have been close
to 1900:40; poor S6-S8 vs usual splash. Then I check the NW Ireland
SDR during `Feature Story News` which follows, better at that skip
distance S8-S9. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 5800, Feb 22 at 0709, S9+20 of dead air. Got to be the
WRMI-10 transmitter still/again on for some reason, amid supposed
0430-2200 (Sat -1400) break. Meanwhile, the next WRMI transmitter,
#12, 5850, which is supposed to be on until 1400, is stronger S9+40
with TOMBS, as apropos for 315 vs 160 degraz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, Feb 23 at 0317, WWCR-4 with non-TOMBS gospel huxter
this hour but with buzz/frying sound, producing peaks around 3-4 kHz
plus and minus. May originate from programmer, E. C. Fulcher rather
than station but which does not filter it out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1509.835V, Feb 22 at 2335 UT, following these reports in
this week`s mv-eko of the Arctic Radio Club:

``1510 16.2 2300 KCTE Independence MO. Seriously offset this evening
at 1509.8395. OJS/L = Odd-Jørgen Sagdahl, Trondheim, remote Loran C
(close to Berlevåg [NE tip of Norway] – 1000 meter 305 grader)

Oid/Tent Nordamerika --- 1510 17.2 0415 Tent KCTE Independence MO
stark med diverse ESPN-promos. 0346 några Missouri-reklamer så
tämligen IDad. Speciellt som den ligger väldigt snett precis som
tidigare gånger jag hört dem. Drygt 160 Hz lågt! Brummar fint mot
jämnstarka CO-stationen som ligger rätt. BOS``

Despite being much closer to KCTE, I check for such a
far-off-frequency; on the DX-398 in offset SSB compared to 1500 &
1520, there is a 1510-minus looping about NNE/SSW. On the R75 I refine
it to 1509.835 and slightly wavering het against the 1510.00 stations.
Rather than measuring it directly which is difficult with all the QRM,
I match the het pitch I am hearing in AM mode, with same pitch on
1-Hz-step tuning in LSB mode. Also rocking back and forth, 1509.835 is
very close to the center of the signal, give or take a few Hz.

Altho OJS heard it at 23 UT, I`m expecting to get it only until 2400*
which is the official FCC sunset time in February (March: 0030*), for
this 10 kW direxional *daytimer* with major lobes to NNE & SSW. Signal
gradually improves and by 2355 I make out an OSHA PSA and ESPN
mention, and if tuned up to 1510.000-LSB, the audio sounds skewed in
pitch as it should from a lower frequency centre. No ID at top of
hour, however, nor does it go off!

Soon obvious it`s amid play-by-play of silly basketball game. Still
there obvious with its het at 0005, 0021. At 0032 I switch to the
Kansas City SDR of KD4HSO and hear exactly the same het on a stronger
semi-local signal. SAM mode readouts a carrier offset of minus 162v
Hz, plus or minus 1 Hz, which is another very neat fit equivalent to
1509.838v. More BKB, still past 0100 with no ID, starting coverage of
``second half``. Of course, KCTE has FM translators, so why don`t they
turn off the AM as legally required to do? Obviously local sunset is
no barrier, as the other log above was at 0415 UT.

Axually, such extrahourity and offfrequenciness are nothing new for
KCTE; I probably had it Dec 8, 2018. This was also reported in *2014y*
along with corroboration from others:

``1509.8 approx., Feb 26 at 0649 UT, KCTE Independence MO for at least
the fourth night is on the air illegally after daytime with
sportstalk, and far out of frequency tolerance, big het upon poor
WLAC.``

The first report in my archive was on the +plus side from *2011y*, ten
years ago: ``1510+, KCTE Independence MO is still off-frequency
producing audible het against weaker stations, Feb 9 at 1416; ID at
1417. Taped the day before and then checked against a keyboard, close
to F# below middle C, i.e. circa 185 Hz above 1510 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)`` Now I wonder if I put it on the wrong side?

Strangely enough, current mwoffsets misses KCTE now and ago with only
an interim entry when it must have managed some accuracy as possible:
``1510,0002 KCTE (Independence MO)[-1510.0008] 1400-0200 2018-01-22``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 5040, UT Mon Feb 22 at 0240, RHC tropical, not in dead air,
managing to modulate for a change! So I can listen to `En Contacto`
which has just started, via Bonaire SDR. Main topic is generic info
about amateur satellites starting with OSCAR; a few QSLs on the air
and mention that ``Arnaldo Coro está nuevamente colaborando en el
programa``. I was listening to hear exactly what they said since
Claudio Galaz, Chile reported Coro was greeted on the previous airing
at 2344-2359 on 13740. So apparently Arnie is better; however he was
still missing from the closing credits. At 0252 onward to the medical
show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. Trying the weblink roger had provided for more Radio Amrum
programming at 1900-2030 Feb 21: stereo rock music at first, nothing
about Amrum and of course DJ in German only. 1911 finally something
about Amrum, 1915 mention nostalgie; 2025 again about Amrum (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2074 monitoring: confirmed Sunday February 21
from 2300:22 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160v; first at 2257, IS & ID loop at
S7-S9 via KB0FX SDR; in SAM mode carrier offset at first varying
around minus 62 Hz, i.e. 6159.938, but at 2319 recheck it`s minus
70-76 Hz, i.e. 6159.927v. Maybe a warmup factor, drifting down slowly
and slightly? I guess the WBCQ skews are due to crystal control, hard
to grind precisely, rather than frequency synthesis.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 22 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+20 direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 22 at 0230 on WRMI 5800, S9+20/30 to KB0FX;
and 7780, S9+20 to Virginia SDR, but unusually not making it at all to
UTwente with a K-index of 4 - which nonetheless is not producing
auroral cx on MW, e.g. WCCO 830 still in well. Also confirmed on WRN
web/satcast. Next:

1901 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 9385, Feb 22 at 0020, WEWN English is unusually strong S9+20
with splash and artifacts down to 9375 especially around 9382.
Anything similar on the plus side obscured by 9395 WRMI (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. The #1 TV program I must never miss is `Sunday Morning`, on
CBS. When I first moved back to OK in the `90s, I discovered that the
CBS affiliate in OKC was not even airing it! Instead, gospel huxters:
after all, it`s --- Sunday morning. So I prevailed on a friend of mine
in Albuquerque to record and mail the tapes to me. Fortunately, KWTV
eventually started carrying it. Trouble is, the live airtime of 8-9:30
CT is unfortunately early for a night owl who would like to doze at
least until 9:00. Timer record? Yes, if you want to leave the cable
box and its spurs on all night; and KWTV cannot be depended on not to
shunt it to its substation KSBI if there be BREAKING NEWS or WEATHER.
Which meant I had to wake up by 8:00 to be sure to start the recording
on correct channel.

One week recently I did run the timer and got burned, so I had to go
after CBS SM on the website. As I reported at the time, it was
off-putting with rough interruptions for the same group of commercials
at every break. Even when started on time last week, my tape ran out
early so I had to get the last third from the website. Then I was
pleasantly surprised to find an adless stream which lasted only 62
minutes for the whole show and I could skip ahead to the last part I
had missed. So assuming that setup continue, I decide now to rely on
watching full episodes ASAP during following week at
https://www.cbsnews.com/sunday-morning/

OR NOT: now I find that altho there are clearly labeled linx to ``Full
Episode Feb 21``, you only get the first segment before it defaults to
``live`` CBSN. You have to keep going back to the SM page and clicking
anew on each segment, hoping not to miss anything altho they add up to
less than 62. OTOH one can easily skip occasional items about stupid
ballgames, which infested Superbowl Sunday. BTW, altho Suddenlink
cable provides many shows on demand from CBS and other networks, SM
has never been included (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.839, Feb 22 at 0349, JBA carrier unseems birdie,
again suspecting a second harmonic from a Latin American MW 1479.9195
but nothing that far off in mwoffsets (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 18134-USB, Feb 21 at 1842, VA7VOC ID as ``Voice of
Canada``, i.e. not RCI. Lots of bio and photos at:

VA7VOC Canada flag Canada
Rob Hatch, West Kelowna, British Columbia Canada
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/va7voc'
I get a few daytime intracontinental sigs on 18 MHz, but seldom any
extras- (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 21 at 0147, RHC with S9+10/20 of dead air yet
again. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Feb 21 at 0155, S9+10/20 of suptorted music on RHC
English service. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6180, Feb 21 at 0156, S9+10 of dead air except for occasional
modulation peaks trying to break thru, during CRI relay. Wiggle that
patchcord! Cannot hear any RNA Brasil if it be underneath. 6180
recheck at 0244 via Bonaire SDR, now there is soft undermodulated
Chinese at S9/+10, still no RNA. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba. After 0300, MWV Madagascar takes over 6180 and CRI/Cuba
moves to 5910 where the same defect usually continue, but not checked
tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ECUADOR. 6050, UT Sun Feb 21 at 0247, surprisingly strong S9+10
from HCJB`s residual into Bonaire SDR, as to here it`s normally JBA.
Also surprising is a praise song in English; but 0255 Spanish
announcement and praise song in Spanish, no break at ToH nor
timesignal. 0313 M&H chatting in Spanish. 0403 YL lexuring on the
Quichua saying their culture is machista - to mix genders - i.e.
hombres dominating mujeres. This is the extended weekend broadcast
past weekday close circa 0230*v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Feb 21 from *1600:05, Issoudun site, FRANCE,
cuts on slightly late, JIP the much-anticipated annual broadcast of
Radio Amrum/Öömrang from the Frisian Islands along the NW German
coast. 1601 switches to English sign-on, saying it`s the tenth such
broadcast, announcer named Gerhardt. 1603 back to German mixed with
shorebird sounds. WRTH 2021 page 476 says this all began in 2006y, so
this must be another old playback? NO, soon proceeds to review of
2020, or rather last 5 years beginning in 2016, alternating languages,
so maybe mixing old with new stuff.

I am listening first via a Rochester NY remote, where there`s a VG
signal as this is 500 kW aimed at NYC. At 1614 I check my own rx where
it`s S9+10/20. Unfortunately I cannot give this my undivided attention
since only bits are in English mixed with Frisian and High German; and
the same hour is occupied by my usual monitoring of `Reliable Sources`
on CNN and the `Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival` on KUCO-FM, notably
with Brahms` Clarinet Quintet in d, Op. 115.

At 1623 they are conversing about Radio Caroline; 1635 contact info in
German, interview mixing Englisch; 1655 plug a continuous webstream
available, I guess from Frisia, and sign-off already in English with
credits, then German, to dead air at 1658.4, finished before ISS can
chop them off incomplete.

A semihour before, I reminded the WOR iogroup that this were nigh, and
many others noted their observations. I assume Richard Langley or
someone will archive the entire hour for more convenient hoering.

** IRAN [and non]. 5980, Feb 21 at 0249, Spanish from LVRII is about
to close but QRM from something else about equal adding up to S9+10
into Bonaire SDR; also some residual pointless pulse jamming from
Cuba. 0251 into Iran IS. Else is other PJ = Punjabi from AWR via
AUSTRIA until 0300. If the collision be this bad in Bonaire, how much
worse in the Punjab? Evidently frequency management at TWR and IRIB,
at their own peril, are not paying attention to my monitoring, as I
reported the same several weeks ago. Of course, no R. Chaski, Perú at
this hour but Claudio Galaz, Chile, did report it in the morning
recently before and after 1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4045-USB, Feb 21 at 0145, pirate rockmusic, S8-S9;
0149 ``Wolverine Radio ---`` with the ``radio`` repeating multiply,
into SSTV, 0151 back to music. Many more logs here including several
captures of the SSTV, one pretty sharp; theme: ``lonely``

** U S A. 375-MCW kHz, Feb 21 at 0715 UT, only one unusual log before

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2074 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
February 20 from 2044:40 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, VG via
nearby KB0FX remote.

Also confirmed Sat Feb 20 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+10/15 via
Bonaire remote but some pulse jamming underaudible.

Also confirmed Sat Feb 20 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, noisy S7/S9 to UTwente
SDR; better to Maine SDR, S6/S9+10.

Also confirmed UT Sunday February 21 at 0427 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO,

** CUBA. 9700, Feb 20 at 0651, S9/+10 of deadair instead of RHC
English; meanwhile 6000 is VG S9+30, 6060 is off, 6100 is S9+20/30 but
somewhat noisy modulation; 5040 also dead air of S9+10/20.

Earlier at 0612, Ivo Ivanov reported:
``Cuban Spy Numbers HM01 over RHC's 9700 kHz at 0600UT, February 20:
0600-0700 9700 BAU 100 kW / 340 deg to WNAm instead of RHC English
// frequency 14375 BEJ 050 kW / unknown to Eu/Am Spanish Tue/Thu/Sat
HM01. Good via SDR Half Moon Bay CA USA. Something`s always wrong at
Radio Cuba -- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

Oops! - how do you say that in Spanish? My Random House dixionary does
not even try; Google translate suggests ``Ups`` or ``Huy! Algo salió
mal`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1 WBFM, Sat Feb 20 at 1330 UT, KUCO-FM is back with

plugged in all day to relay of WCPE The Classical Station in NC.
Signal also much better, maybe back up to 100 kW ERP instead of 5 kW
