Wednesday, April 17 2024

Hauser
** CUBA. 15140, Apr 16 at 1415, RHC Spanish flanked by diffuse
spurblobs about plus/minus 3.5 kHz, and a weaker pair +/- 7~ kHz.
15230 also on, S5/S7 but suptorted = modulation suppressed and
distorted. Somethings` always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9880, Apr 16 at 2220, S8/S9 with flutter hard to
read at first seems English intonation, then Esperanto, which is
what`s listed this hour from CRI via Kashi-Saiba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15440, Apr 16 at 1458, good signal in unID lang until
1459*. Aoki shows TWR Asia via Talata in Urdu at 1430-1500 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Apr 16 at 0654, ORTM with music modulation instead of
noiseblob like last night; vs high storm noise level from nearby - a
bit earlier we had a lite hailstorm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAIPAN [and non]. 11894.945 approx., Apr 16 at 0649, S5/S7 direct,
at first unseems Chinese, then it does seem. RFA sked at 0300-0700,
surely jammed, but this may have a propagational advantage and more
likely to be off-frequency. However, per Aoki, also on 11895 is CRI
English via East Turkistan at 05-09. The SSOB except for similar
signal on 12065, BBC Hausa via ASCENSION (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, Apr 16 at 1508 check direct, S3/S4 of roar but
sounds loud. SAWA Riyadh. BTW, in ** country headers I dispense with
diacritix in order not to confuse searching, but within an item I will
spell it like Sa`udi Arabia; Qur`an, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TINIAN [non?]. 13795, Apr 16 at 1432, Chinese, S3/S7 with flutter.
RFA Cantonese this hour only. So if really Mandarin instead, would be
CNR1 *jammer. However, are the Chicom less thoro in jamming minority
langs other than Tibetan? Only one signal audible (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.010, Apr 16 standing by direct for TRT signal, not
cut on until a few sex past 2200, some dead air, JIP programming.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler, mentions `Turkey`s Geomarked
[sic] Products`, evidently a program preview and into headlines. S9+20
with flutter, ACI from 11780 Brasil unless USB tuning. By 2222 I
notice lots of Doppler flutter on 11785, i.e. propagation-caused
frequency wobbling/instability. 2250 into UTwente, more stable when
measured in music, but more up-and-down fading than sidewise. 2252
``always-by-your-side`` promo. 2253 badax s/off for the 1230 on 17620
only. 2254 IS. 2256 pause and restart IS, now with German ID heard
once just before chopoff* ahead of 2257.

BTW, VOT has been notifying German and English listeners, at least,
about a planned maintenance break at Emirler for Thursday April 18 at
06-15 UT, as Paul Gager in Austria reports to BDXC-UK on April 15: ``I
heard on Monday after the TRT-news in English: `and we have an
announcement because of attendance(?)/repair works on our transmitter
on April 18, our English broadcast will not be available from 9 am to
6 pm on Thursday on shortwave``` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2238 monitoring: still confirmed UT
Tuesday April 16 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, despite disappearing from the
sked grid and also still there last week; S7/9+5 into Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday April 16 at 1300 on WRMI 9955, only S5/S7
direct including heavier than usual Commie Cuban pulse jamming. Next:

** U S A. 4840, Apr 16 at 0650, S9+45 of dead air from WWCR-3 instead
of TOMBS. Std remark about no one at station paying attention, yet
again - and not even a squeal to make it a bit more interesting: that
may require some attempt at modulation to set it off (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, Apr 16 at 1502, JBA carrier from WWCR-1. Usually more
than that; conditions must be depressed. But lower channels are
progressively stronger. 13845 at only S5/S7 but typically indicating
the MUF somewhere between 14 and 16 MHz; 12160 S9 with squeal; 9980
S9+25 with a bit o` squeal. When 15825 inbooms at its one-megameter
distance, we know it has to be sporadic E, even if it never reach the
TV or FM bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9350, Apr 16 at 2216, WWCR-2, S9+20/30 gospelhuxterism with
squeal, same transmitter as on 7490, 12160, 5935 at other dayparts.
Something`s noxious in Nashville (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9475, Apr 16 at 2217, WTWW S9+40/50 direct with love song,
seemingly secular, then into a Native American singer; is there a
specific program schedule? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2321 UT April 16

Hauser
** FRANCE. 13600.1, Apr 15 at 0531, S6/S9 ``NHK World Radio Japan`` ID
in English as required, otherwise in French. I bet it`s TDF warped
relay transmitter like on 9490.1 for R. República. Yes, ISS listed at
0530-0550 for Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5990-6000, Apr 15 at 0613, Bamako resumes noiseblobbing
instead of any program audio, S8/S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 6950, Apr 15 at 0609 UT, JBA 5 x 1390, local KCRC Enid,
Intruder, not to be confused for a pirate, but stupid sportstalk.
Axually good to hear it since it means my noise level has reduced.
More common and a tad stronger is 4170 = 3 x 1390. 2780 = 2 x 1390 is
always there, but rarely on 5560 = 4 x 1390, an area I don`t much
patrol. Our other local, KGWA, used to be a neighbor on 2880 = 3 x
960, but not lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Apr 15 at 1430 UT, Enid`s only local TV signal,
K17JN-D is still mis-IDing as K17JI-D - main channel 17-1 3ABN is
freezing and breaking up, while the higher subs are black. There is
tropo now but I don`t think this be DX QRM. By 2300 recheck, more or
less normal, but 17-3 is black, yet with equal signal to others on the
STB meter (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.019, Sunday April 14 at 2203, VOT English not off the
air but S9+50 into UTwente, like-a-local-loud. Further off+frequency
than usual. 2223 `Weekly Analysis` about Egypt economy being assisted
by other Arab countries -- sounds familiar from last week(s), authored
by John somebody. 2229 ``with-you-every hour`` promo, `Letterbox`.
First someone referring to World Theatre Day on 27 March, never caught
their name or location, maybe a perennial from S Asia. Then Konstantin
Barshenko, St Pete, Russia. Then Ricky Hein, USA -- ``no comment`` as
for the nth time is requesting an English schedule; was already
exasperated with him last week. Ralf U-- from Germany. Peter Ng,
Johore Bahru, Malaysia -- this sets our host off into a lengthy aside
- he has visited/worked in Singapore, which is a workaholic, boring,
stressful, suicidal place, and many of the natives escape to Malaysia
for R&R. And his wife is from Malaysia. Anyhow Ng wants a QSL. Another
from Lithuania, host might like to visit, why not? And Austrian Harald
Suess. And why do so many of them say ``73`` -- their year of birth??
2247 time`s up but still time for a tune before L`box closing at 2252,
``always-by-your-side``. 2253 canned s/off by the badax for the 1230
on 17620. Interval signal chopped after six notes and off by 2254*. No
finesse, something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Apr 15 at 2200 I
don`t listen beyond confirming on portable is is on the air; need to
wean myself from this TRT habit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2238 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
April 14 at 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+5/10 into UTwente
across Europe; lite CCI music with fast SAH, increases during our
fade. Sounds like Qur`an, so Iran.

Missed checking the Sunday 2130 on SWR, Germany, 3975 & 6160. Anyone?

Confirmed UT Monday April 15 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9 offbeam into
Maryland SDR, but that includes heavy continuous OTH radar? noise. To
ear and to eye on the waterfall, it extends only from 7770 to 7783. I
bring up another closer to bore for comparison, but stops abruptly at
0037 and does not resume. Anyhow, S7/S9+5 into Mississippi. It seems
the one in Louisiana is still there but no longer IDed as Maurice, and
anyhow does not connect now. There is also one showing later in
Querétaro, closest to SW angle from Okee and indeed getting 7780 much
better. I think owned by an American active MWDXer who lives there.

Confirmed UT Monday April 15 from 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.930,
S9/+10 into NH SDR.

Missed checking Mon Apr 15 at 0930 on SWR 6160 and 1930 on 6160 &
3975. Anyone hear them? Next:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to SW [not sked but confirmed Apr 9]

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated. Thanks this
week to Ron Howard, Monterey, California, for a check in US funds on a
US bank to: Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, ``in memory of
Jari Savolainen [1951-2020], an excellent Finnish DXer, always very
helpful. Thank you for your decades of service to our radio hobby!``

** U S A. 12050, Apr 15 at 0541, RCC stuff in Spanish, S4/S7, so WEWN,
RCM must really be running until 0600 here rather than original night
frequency 5970, unheard for ages. Only English frequency allegedly
sked has also been AWOL again, 15610 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 93.9, Apr 15 at 1446 UT, on caradio, Mexmx in Spanish,
frequent IDs as ``La Mexicana, 101.5 y 93.9``, has overcome KIMY in
OK, frantic pace, ads mention SW Kansas.

The WTFDA FMDB is *still* out of commission and very much missed.
Administrator, Mike Bugaj in CT explained on Apr 7-8:

``Our website host decided to no longer support a certain process that
we need to make the database available on the website. This happened
without much advance notice. We will be moving the site to another
server, hopefully in the next week or so. Processes have been updated
from scratch and much of the code has been rewritten. The database
will be back. db.wtfda.org will be back. But it won't be on our
current host. I bet that our webhost has quite a few customers mad at
it right now.``

I found the website via radio-locator: https://www.swksradio.net/ksmm
KSMM is the call in Liberal KS on 101.5, not checked. KZRD 93.9 is in
Dodge City KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 93.5, Apr 15 at 1500 UT, on caradio, expecting Kansas tropo
like on 93.9, but ID as ``KPRO, Altus OK, K-pro rox``. Altus in SW
corner of OK is often the hottest spot. 45 kW and website:
https://paradisebroadcasting.com/93-5-kpro/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5080.0 & 5080.6, Apr 15 at 0623, matching open carriers
S9 with some fading so not local, ute? in normally vacant area (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 14 at 1930, RHC English is on, S5/S6 into
Maryland SDR with squeal; waterfall clearly shows two spurs wider than
center frequency, about 15136.3 and 15143.7, the lower one slightly
brighter. Also with stuff extending out from center to a sesquikHz or
so. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Aside from that, program
modulation is OK. AMNarrow gets rid of the squeal. 1934 Caribbean
Island show: Grenada and its relations with Cuba. 11760 is off this
time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, April 14 at 1525 into UTwente, huge horrible
roar again, S9+10, flailing trying to Synchlock, stops briefly on
11935.197, then 11934.717 -- merely instantaneous spotting. Still at
next check 1926. The SA transmitter is haywire again. Had been clear
starting April 2. Or are there two different transmitters? Why in the
world would they let it transmit for long hours/days/months in such a
condition? Inaudible programming presumably still Republic of Yemen
Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, April 14 at 1542, R. Martí weekend service for Cuban
forces for Russia in Ukraine, is still running, music at the moment,
sked 13-17 S&S, and still 17-21 M-F on 17690. 17865 achieves S9+5/15
into UTwente, so presumably also audible by the mercenaries, should
they care to listen, or even be aware of it. 1545 DJ mentions Peter
Gabriel, Music without Frontiers, so this is not just music fill. Must
be referring to and playing `Games without Frontiers`, which could be
interpreted as anti-war:
https://kanto.co/lyrics/peter-gabriel/games-without-frontiers
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2238 monitoring: continued from
last report: on IRRS/NEXUS/IBA/IPAR webcast only, the Sat 2334 airing
is indeed out of kilter as always, still running by 0000 UT Sun April
14, when I hear via Argentine remote the WRMI 9955 play at 0000, S9+5
already starting, until about 0000.4 when I am faded out by IRRS to be
replaced by fill music! This is because `Feature Story News` has to
run at 2330. I have asked them before to let us air completely from
2330 to 2359 - then FSN, fill music or whatever!

Also confirmed UT Sunday April 14 from 0340.5 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
S9+20 into nearby remote; delayed by the almost interminable Houston
Hamsat net playback, and then for less than 15 minutes, ARRL News - so
once you hear that you know WOR will be along shortly. Vern has to
insert his own ID every dekaminute, often interrupting me in the
middle of a word. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323-Italy
2130 UT Sunday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Apr 13 at 2145 tune-in early for
LRA36, but it`s already running, VP into only BsAs remote working,
Spanish but no match for S7 noise level. 2149 switch to Brasília SDR
where it`s *much* better tho only S3/S6 with music, 2155 ID, 2214 &
2216 IDs in passing. Reduced carrier barely perceptible by tuning
lower in USB. By 2235 faded down to only S2/S3, barely readable. 2340
next check is gone, just splash from 15480 China. So I wonder what
time starting now, and still only on Saturday? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GERMANY. 6070, Sat Apr 13 after 1900, `From the Isle of Music`
confirmed on its new schedule, monthly on second Saturday via Channel
292, S9+5/10 into UTwente. Monthly on third Sat will be `Uncle Bill`s
Melting Pot` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, April 13 at 0618, ORTM is on for a change, African song
with strumming, S9+15/25 direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6184.97 approx., April 13 at 0620, this time XEPPM air
really is dead on S9/+30 signal. Something`s malo en México (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Apr 13 at 2155, VOT already on with long-form
IS, VG S9+45 into UTwente; 2156 pause and restart short IS with
English IDs. 2200 accurate timesignal but instead of s/on, plays the
2-minute multi-lingual ID filler reel! 2202 news in English for this
date. 2212 `The Energy Agenda`, natural gas reserves in eastern
Mediterranean around Cyprus worth a sesquiterabuck. 2217 song. 2224
`Turkey`s Geomarked [sic] Products` - baklava. 2227 music. 2231
another song. 2235 another2 song. 2238 another3 song. 2242 another4
song. 2246 another5 song. 2250 another6 song. 2253 s/off of the 1230
on 17620, the badax` voice for the first time this hour. 2254 IS.
2254.4* chopoff, no finesse. A semihour of music fill might also
qualify as something`s awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2238 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday April 13 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/25 direct.

Don`t you believe also on 7730, as misdisplayed for months/years on
the WRMI skedgrid. 7730 is JBA but not //. Altho now ``effective March
10, 2024``, the System F - redsked shows at 01-03 everything on both
frequencies. Yet the frequency sked atop shows System L on 7730 during
those hours. Yet the System L yellowsked itself shows 5950 only! This
error affects many other programs and programmmes, such as Encore,
RNEI, RFPI, R. Carpathia, CQ Calling, The Mighty KBC, Rosie`s Retro
Wave.

WOR 2238 also confirmed UT Saturday April 13 at 0400 on WTWW 5085, VG
into NH remote. I`m pleased with how reliably and accurately Bob
Biermann has been playing WOR each week, and tnx to George McClintock
for availablizing the time and keeping the transmitter running.

Also confirmed Saturday April 13 at 1450 the 1430 on SW Radio,
Germany, 6160.001, S9+5 into UTwente

Also confirmed Saturday April 13 at 1613 the 1600 on WRN N America
webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday April 13 at 1930 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
already underway, mid-break at 1939 so started early circa 1925.

Also confirmed Saturday April 13 after 1930 on WRMI webcast only and
WRN webcast for North America.

Also confirmed Saturday April 13 at 2012 the 2000 on WRN Europe
webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday April 13 at 2348 at mid-break on IRRS
NEXUS-IBA stream only, so probably still starting circa 2334 leading
to chopping off the last 3 minutes or so by 2400. Next:

** CANADA. 15034 USB, April 12 at 1531, random tune to Trenton
Military hits them with aviation weather *received!!* from Zagreb,
etc. I wonder how many flights, even commercial, to Serbia depend on
this (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 12 at 1900, I check for RHC English: NO signal;
retune to 11760 and there is a good signal with ``Ed Newman`` opening
English hour - but chopped off the air before 1901! Hastening to QSY
to 15140? NO, still nothing there by 1925. Something`s always wrong at
RHC. Could English be shunted to an unknown third frequency? The Other

Five freedoms against totalitarianism in Cuba: a grassroots initiative
The new movement aims to unite Cubans of all kinds to, first of all,
put an end to 'five forms of internal state subjugation'.

Ángeles Rosas, Madrid, 08 Abr 2024 - 18:21 CEST -- A woman promotes
the Five Freedoms against Totalitarianism initiative. 5L Campaign
[caption]

On Thursday an anti-regime group launched the Five Freedoms (5L)
citizens' initiative against Totalitarianism, "the people's answer to
the economic package," which offers solutions to overcome the serious
socio-economic crisis suffered by Cubans and put an end to the
oligarchic state of GAESA...

{¿Su nombre? Grupo de Administración Empresarial, SA (Gaesa), el grupo
empresarial de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias (FAR) con
ramificaciones que van desde el sector hotelero hasta las tiendas
minoristas de ventas de productos en divisas, pasando por las aduanas
y los puertos, entre muchos otros.}

...Thus, "freedom from terror" consists of an "end to repression and
the one-party political dictatorship;" "economic freedom," of an "end
to the internal restrictions on free enterprise; "freedom of
expression," of the "end of censorship;" "freedom association," of an
"end to the prohibition of citizen organizations;" and "freedom of
movement," of an "end to exile and the exclusion from Cuba's exiles as
a community."...``

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.8 AM, April 12 at 2205 UT, Enid CB pirate is active
again with gospel music, 2206 ``Kay-Love`` ID, as before from K288FX,
105.5 translator of KYLV 88.9 OKC (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935.001, April 12 at 0341, Arabic talk mixed with
bits of Qur`aning, S9/+10 into UTwente, where there was no signal last
time I checked at 2138 April 11. After 0400, continuous Qur`aning; it
is after all, the Fribbath. No Yemen IDs noticed yet (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Apr 12 at 2200, token English from SNR is
sufficient direct into DX-390 portable; 2210 feature after Beirut
report is about protests in Canary Islands against government
prioritizing tourism over protecting biodiversity. Seems islands`
limited area is declining, due to development - and sea level rise?
Population 2 million but 14M tourists per year and many vacation homes
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 15105, April 12 at 1532, tinkling TWR IS, surely one of
the most distinctive and recognizable, S5/S7. Aoki shows 1535-1920 in
Tig language M-F. Surely that`s a typo for -1620. Yes, much more
precisely, EiBi shows 1532-1621 M-F. Now the question is, why would
they schedule a broadcast to start at the odd time of :32 or :35 past
an hour? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, April 12 at 2200, VOT English not off the air
but audible into DX-390 portable. VG via UTwente at 2235 when
measured, ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music. 2241
``always-by-your-side`` promo and `That`s Why`, badax about brushing
your teeth since there is a connexion between gum disease and heart
conditions. 2247 music. 2252 s/off by badax as if the 1230 on 17620.
2253 IS plays one sesquitime before chopoff 2353.5*, no finesse, no
German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

9955, JBA direct vs S9 noise level, compounded by seeming
undermodulation.

Also confirmed Friday April 12 at 2249 the 2230 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.002, S9+5/10 into UTwente. Next:

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated. Thanks this
week to Ron Howard, Monterey, California, for a check in US funds on a
US bank to: Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, ``in memory of
Jari Savolainen [1951-2020], an excellent Finnish DXer, always very
helpful. Thank you for your decades of service to our radio hobby!``

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` check of WBCQs, April 12 at 2336 into NH SDR:
3265 off. 5130.189 S9 `ATATT`. 6159.930 S9+10 TOMBS. 7489.933 S9+10
FKB. 9330.000 S9+10/15 WLCR. April 13 at 0000, 5130 is a bit late
switching to WTO theme after 7490 does. Seems like a new show; Angela
is remote from Allan this week, on a phoneline while he is still in
studio 1 with antiquated equipment. It`s going to be political, as
among his first remarx, ``535 white-trash assholes,`` thus dissing the
entire Senate and House. Retune at 0059 in prayer foreseeing that WBCQ
may one day be the only SW station left in the world, running over a
minute into Hal Turner time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
