Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Nov 11 tune-in at 1800 via
Argentine remote, LRA36 presumably just started, with music, S6/S7.
Constant noise level of S5/S6 at the SDR always makes this tiresome
listening tho more or less readable. A carrier would help to overcome
it. Did not try to detect and reconfirm at least a much-reduced
carrier. Too much else going on now, so only occasional chex: 1842,
``comunicad`` contact info, 1843 acknowledging report de México. 1918
outro ``Noticias Australes``. 1949 brief mention of ``despedida`` and
off way early, no signal on further random chex -- until 2106, now
it`s back on, talk over musical background; still at 2120. Not checked
again till 2335 when it`s off, but?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ASCENSION. 6135, Nov 11 at 0554, African talk mentions Gaza,
Nigeria, S9: BBC Hausa at 0529-0600 only per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** BRAZIL. 4985, Nov 11 at 2320, surprised to hear some Brazuguese
instead of a JBA carrier at best, typically later at night, from R.
Brasil Central, Goiânia. Blocked by RTTY on the plus side, but clear
if tuning LSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9415, Nov 11 at 2324, surprisingly strong Vietnamese,
S9+10/20 and much louder than WRMI, WBCQ; into song like a hymn but
can`t be since this is CRI Viet service from Beijing site; toward SE
Asia, must be close to off-the-backward thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Nov 11 at 2319, R. Rebelde is not off the air as was
the case last night. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, Nov 11 at 0555, JBA music; could
Ballsmacker Radio still be on this Friday night? Yes, until 0600*:

https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,120964.msg375728.html
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,120962.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 25695 USB, Nov 11 at 1839, heavy rock music, tnx to
tip from Walt Salmaniw on the WOR iog that MRI is here, i.e. Mix Radio
International. I`m getting it direct at S6, presumably sporadic E from
the Chicago area, but listen further for convenience via Alberta SDR
where Don Moman is also hearing it. Lots of heavily produced
promos/IDs, but I wish they would Mix in some other music genres like
world, folk or classical. 1857, ``Mix Radio International Worldwide``,
then played newer version of ``Venus``, then ``Eternal Flame`` by
Bangles. 1904 ID ``Broadcasting from the United States of America...``
1934 ``Best of shortwave radio, Mix Radio International``. Still going
at 2042, 2106, 2120 chex. Not checked again until 2316 direct,
unheard, nor at 2335 to Alberta. More reports of MRI on 11 mb:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,121017.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 11 at 2317, VOT is not off, S9+20 direct but vs
intermittent line noise blasts to S9+40! Something about caving. Want
to get stuck like that last spelunker? Then 5960.006 at 2337 via
UTwente, S9+30/40, music with good modulation. 2351 s/off with wrong
labeling of times as UTC but they are really local UT+3; at least this
5960 gets mentioned as ``02-03 UTC``; this is by the otherwise
well-spoken YL, not the badax. Then IS for a while and chopoff* before
2356 when it would have restarted with German IDs; something`s always
awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K Q O G B A N I. 25900, Nov 11 at 1631, BBC English JBA S6/S7
direct in daily bihour toward S Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2216 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday November 11 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S7/S5 into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 11 at 1630 on WRMI 15770. Tuned in
direct at 1629, No signal! But pops on just in time for WOR, poor
S7/S8. Then into UTwente, European target area, it`s only S7/S5. But
Maine SDR on the way has it well, S9+20/15. Alberta SDR at 1641
getting it sufficiently, S6/S8, even tho off the side of NE beam, so
this should be usable in much of North America beyond the skip zone. I
kept it running at least in background to be sure there were no
further breaks.

Also confirmed Saturday November 11 at 1700 on WRN North America
webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday November 11 at 2028 about 2 minutes into so
started circa 2026 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+13 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday November 11 at 2030 on WRMI webcast-only, and
on WRN North America webcast. Next:

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

** VANUATU. 9960, Nov 11 at 0555, JBA carrier past 0600, presumed
still RV until 0659, much weaker than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 11 at 0247, WTWW is finally back on air, as George
McClintock just notified me, after the 3-day visit by a Continental
engineer. Ex-bishop Bob Biermann pontificating, VG direct and S9+18/25
into Missouri SDR. Off somewhere around 0500. Check 9475 next in
daytime, at least afternoons. If he fixed two transmitters could also
simul-be on other ex-frequencies. 9475 not heard Nov 11, nor 5085 on
by 2419 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

Kiss It Goodbye: What If We Send a Paranoid-Psychopath back to the
White House in 2024? -- Frogs Boiled: What Trump is Planning for a
Second Term

Last night Democrats saw what happens when they run on the issues.
When they run on who they are, instead of running away from it, they
win. Now Democrats need to take on an issue many would rather avoid:
Donald Trump and the future of democracy if he’s re-elected...

Hauser
** CHINA. 10000, Nov 11 at 0058, checking calibration of the NH
KiwiSDR, timepips neither WWV nor WWVH but almost in synch with them
way under. What`s this? 0059, BPM ID multiple times in Morse code, and
two voice announcements in Chinese just before 0100. WRTH shows
location Pucheng, not Beijing, 24h with 20 kW, also on 2500, 5000,
15000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 5910, Nov 10 at 0432, S9+40/50 of dead air with
some hum. Oh2, CRI relay via CUBA at 03-05 is back here for B-season,
ex-9790, obliterating Colombia`s only? SW station, Alcaraván Radio,
during a bihour of primetime. How rude. But it`s JBA underneath as
long as no mod from C/C, and slightly better with LSB tuning since
it`s more like 5909.96 - no het
audible. HJDH would be better off on 6010, but not completely; altho
6010 has Brasil, but NOT XEOI which Aoki still lists despite gone for
multiple years!

HFCC shows CRI 250 kW at 305 degrees thisaway in Eng and Yue, in
B-season use for many years; only other 5910 is !IRDR! = standby but
no disaster has ever? occurred meriting activation for relief! on this
or any other reserved frequency in each band. Available 24/7 to all 85
CIRAF zones, placeholder SMG Vatican site with 100 kW (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5800, Nov 10 at 0431, pulse jamming vs nothing. WRMI ruined
this frequency forever by briefly putting R. República on it several
months ago. WRMI hours are now 22-04 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 10 at 0433, RHC with S9+30/40 of dead air except
maybe a trace of modulation. Nothing audible on X2 = 12000.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Nov 10 at 2117, R. Cairo at S9/+10 direct but JBM
music. By 2133 a bit better into Italian SDR, S9+20/30 in distorted
English, about ``around the world``. Something`s egregious in Egypt
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 6150, Nov 10 at 0434, Japanese, S9+20/30, mentions
``NHK`` pronounced as in English since JJ has no letters! HFCC shows
03-05, 250 kW, 140 degrees from Issoudun, FRANCE toward CIRAFs 37-39 =
Spain, across N Africa to Arabia and Turkey.

Stays on 6105 in Japanese at 02-04 via ISS at 290 degrees for CIRAFs
10-11, Mexico, C America, Caribbean but also hitting much of N
America. So, are there more Japanese speakers with SW in those zones
than English further north? Hardly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, Nov 10 at 0438 UT, ND beacon SW is JBA. Sad
situation when this nearby Stillwater becomes DX vs OG&E`s line noise
level, worst on LW but extending to 25+ MHz. Four days later I am
still waiting for any response to my latest complaint Nov 6 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Nov 10 at 2300, VG direct, token English from SNR,
still opens with B23 schedule but no language details, inviting
listener contact, no news and soon interview about a 300-piece art
exhibition from the Americas, Alaska to the southern tip; but sorely
lacking any visual content, this being SW, unlike lots of pirates, or
Radiograms, which manage somehow (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.002, Nov 10 at 2300, VOT is JBA to DX-398 portable but
at 2323, S9+20/30 into R75, something about Gaza; 2355 IS playing,
S9+25/35 into UTwente where measured; 2356 restart IS with IDs in
German; 2400 timesignal and s/on extraneous German, news until chopoff
at 2413* again, uncovering the CCCCCCI which was always an
understation. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 26110 FM, Nov 10 at 1625 UT, KMK282 at KOVR/KMAX fades up
briefly in report about prospects for ski areas opening; never
reaching full quieting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2216 monitoring: add (Tunisia) to
contents. Confirmed Friday November 10 at 2130 on IRRS SW via AM
Italia, 1323 kHz only, still not on 918 or 207, ever? S9+10/20 into
nearby Noale SDR but with considerable pop music CCI. Certainly not
Iran nor 30 watts in UK, per MWlist leaving only this on extended
schedule; unless an unlisted pirate, unlikely:

** U S A. 7490 = 74 Hz = 7489.926, UT Sat Nov 11 at 0100, WBCQ opening
`AAAWWW`, but VP S4/S6 into New Hampshire SDR I have picked; and NOT
// 5130+ which stays with T****, and 6160- which stays with some
gospel huxter, and 3265+ not on the air; and 9330.00 stays of course
with the flat-earthers. So to really hear AAAWWW one must bring up the
webcast quickly - soon recognizing that it`s playback of last week,
pre-time-change, 68 degrees and Angela is ``half-naked`` as Allan
strives to make his listeners envious. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 711 kHz, Nov 10 at 0439, JBA carrier, no doubt Morocco`s
in occupied WESTERN SAHARA. Cursory check of 531-1044 kHz finds only
this TA, no Algerians 531 or 891, no Spaniards on 684, 774, 1044

UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIALS

``Reception report --- Hello Mr. Hauser,I just finished listening to
your World of Radio program on 9395 kHz on WRMI on November 7 at 0030
UTC. The program was very interesting and I enjoyed it very much.

I listened regularly to shortwave radio as a teenager in the 1970s. My
favourite program was the Sunday show on Radio Nederlands. After a
long break, I recently purchased a Tecsun PL880 and began listening
again. Thank God for WRMI.

I am located in Dundas, Ontario about 60 km west of Toronto. We live
in a 6th floor condo and I drop a 50' antenna off our balcony. Your
program came through very strongly with little interference or
fading.

Thanks for keeping shortwave alive. Howard Williamson``

** MALI. 15125, Nov 8 at 1624, algo talk at S6/S8, best
extracontinental signal on 19mb which is mostly vacant. EiBi shows CRI
Arabic via Bamako to east Africa. Did not strike me as Arabic, maybe
dialectical? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. FM DX report Nov 7 under USA includes some OKitems

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, K17JN-D, Enid`s only local TV signal, Nov 8 at
0611 UT, is back! After exactly a month, since Oct 7 of wasted watts
transmitting nothing but dead sound and black video on all subchannels
- except for a brief break totally off the air. It was still so,
checked a few hours earlier on Nov 7. But the lineup has changed:

17-1, K17JN-D, 3ABN main channel
17-2, & 17-3, skipped! nothing
17-4, 3ABN-ES = Spanish
17-5 & 17-6 & 17-7, skipped! nothing
17-8, AUDIO ONLY: 3ABN-RD - which means what?
17-9, AUDIO ONLY: 3ABN-RL - which means what?
17-10, AUDIO ONLY: Radio 74

I gather that virtual channel numbers displayed do not always match up
with `real` channels, why? Previously, one of the AUDIO ONLY channels
was always silent! Radio 74 network is also on 89.3 KIEL Loyal OK 3.8
kW south of Enid, semi-local but ACI from 89.1 Enid translator.

Here is how it shows at

https://www.rabbitears.info/market.php?request=station_search&callsign=k17jn-d
before they get this updated info from me; strangely it`s filed under
Market #50, OKC, altho no one there is going to be able to see it. A
100-watt transmitter with enough gain to reach 15 kW ERP in max lobe:

But the site is WNW of Enid which means major lobe misses most of the
city headed toward Kremlin. Site is between N/S roads Imo and SH 132;
just north of US 412, between E/W: East 410 Rd and East 420 Rd -
designations I don`t recall ever seeing on road signs. That tower
probably hosts several other stations. Yes, as here, but only the 88.7

uttering basic B23 schedule with no language details, not even
English, now a sesquiweek after effective Oct 29. After news,
2309-2319 first feature of interest is about the whistling language of
the Canary Islands, Sr. Romero talking about it as Quintana translates
- from Spanish, not whistlish. Too few examples of how it really
sounds. Reception sufficient but some deep fades, direct into DX-398
with a few meters of clip-on antenna (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, VOT extra German cutoff time in last report should
have read 2412.5* not 2312.5*, i.e. -0012.5* Nov 8.

Also, one sked version says 7285 is correct for 2130-2230 English, and
also at 0400-0500. But HFCC still shows 9610 at 2130; which is it? I
check Nov 8 at 2200 into UTwente: nothing on 7285; 9610 with about
equal mixture of poor signals, one of which sounds like VOT English,
the other Chinese? Aoki shows CNR8 in Mongolian from Beijing 491 site,
and VOT English. 7285 would be better.

5960, here`s a new erroneous at Emirler! Via UTwente, S9+25/40, Nov 8
at 2346 amid Turkish music, brief announcement not in English; more
music, another very brief presumably Turkish announcement, music until
chopoff at 2356*. That`s the normal endtime for English. Uncovers the
CCCCCCI which has been underneath. Wrong program feed and no one
noticed. After 2300, only English is scheduled anywhere on SW, but
Turkish HS presumably runs 24h, supposed to be in a SW break per HFCC,
until 2200* on 6120, resuming at *0100 on 6000 (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. After DTV tropo DX from The Metroplex, as in last report, I
switch to FM DX into the garaged caradio, 2004 Nissan stock, no RDS,
fender vertical antenna only, Nov 7 from 1825, including some non-DX
notes about calls and slogans; with listings from WTFDA FMDB; numbers
before lat. and long. are kW ERP, same H&V u.o.s. in one case; and
meters height above average terrain. Distances approx., city-to-city
from-to, not site-to-sites, added to end of each item in km/stmi; all
times strictly UT:

90.9 at 1825, gospel rock not // 91.1 in talk, but soon Air One ID on
90.9 and later back to // 91.1 KKRD Enid. So 90.9 is still KOKF OKC,
not DX

94.9 at 1827, $ tereo talk about A.A.; 1831 show is `New Life Live`,
1-800-NEWLIFE. That must be a program, not a station. No ID until:
1900, ``KJLT 94.9 North Platte`` and long string of translators by
alternating voices, then gospel rock:
KJLT-FM 94.9 NORTH PLATTE NE CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN KING JESUS LIVES
TODAY 100.0 230.0 40-59-49 100-52-47 28F5 Title & Artist ON LIFE 94.9

102.5 at 1829, Bott Radio Network:
KKCV 102.5 ROZEL KS RELIGIOUS TEACHING BOTT RADIO NETWORK 100.0 148.8
37-57-28 99-25-45 - where is Rozel? Due S of Hays, WSW of Great Bend,
pop 156. Those lucky Rozelians with a full-power FM station of their
own! 241/150

105.9 at 1833, Mexmx. Aside from a 74-watt translator in The Dominion
TX, there are two possibilities, in TX and KS:
KUZN 105.9 CENTERVILLE TX Spanish CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN RADIO ALELUYA
25.0 100.0 31-16-56 95-53-42 -- and:
KSSA 105.9 INGALLS KS Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA KE BUENA 105.9 FM &
1470 AM 100.0 203.0 37-46-48 100-27-38 415C KE BUENA KSSA...KSSA
Centerville is on I45, closer to Huntsville than Corsicana. Ingalls is
midway between Dodge City & Garden City, much closer and brief hearing
sounded more like Regional than Christian, so: KSSA 279/173

105.3 at 1835, ``105.3 The Buzz``:
KFBZ 105.3 HAYSVILLE KS HD HOT AC THE BUZZ 105.3 98.0 307.0 37-48-01

104.9 at 1835, S Asian language; really stands out, heard before:

105.1 at 1835 and later, sports talk in MONO. Not shown as mono by
WTFDA. Not DX:

97-21-59 36CD KOSB //KOKP 1020/KOKB 1580 54/34

104.7 at 1837, ``Kiss 104.7`` also thus on FB, YL with ``stupid
headlines``
KXNC 104.7 NESS CITY KS CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO KISS 104.7 16.5 273.0
38-36-32 99-42-11 291/181

93.7 at 1840, Spanish talk, ads, one with heavy English accent, (972)
AC; 1843, (469) AC, ad from Dalas:
KNOR 93.7 KRUM TX Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA RAZA 93.7 43.0 600.2

93.7 FM Rock 353/219

93.9 at 1841, Mexmx loud & clear unlike 93.7; at 1903, ``Show de
Andrés Gutiérrez; tema: dinero``, call-in, 805-YANOMAS, and a whatsapp
starting with 210, area code? Likely national show. (805) AC =
California: SLO, Ventura, Sta Bárbara counties; (210) if an AC would
be San Antonio TX. Only fit in quadri-state area:
KZRD 93.9 DODGE CITY KS Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA MEXICANA 100.0
246.0 37-55-56 100-19-02 // KSMM 101.5 243/151

100.7 at 1847, North Platte ad!, ``Flat Rock 100.7``, ``Jump`` song:
KRNP 100.7 SUTHERLAND NE CLASSIC ROCK FLAT ROCK 100.7 100.0 229.6
41-03-50 101-20-16 3E45 ROCK 100 KRNP Oldies
Sutherland is just west of NP on I-80. Whence strange name Flat Rock?
A geographical feature? Wikipedia says it`s nickname for NP, used by
several businesses. Another one is Little Chicago. This and 94.9 above
are my max DX in this opening: 583/362

97.9 at 1849, ```B-98, music of the 80s, 90s and today`` [what about
the 00s & 10s?]:
KRBB 97.9 WICHITA KS HD SOFT AC B 98 FM 100.0 313.0 37-46-40 97-30-37
3CFF KRBB FM - Song/Artist KRBB FM - Song/Artist No Program Type or
Undefined 152/94

Note: you get no hits by slogan, searching B98 or B-98 - it has to be
B space 98: B 98. And guess what, there is another B 98 in Oklahoma
but twice as far from me as Wichita fringe, usually edged out by
closer 97.7 and 98.1 stations. That could be confusing for Es DX! So
unheard from SE OK:
KZBB 97.9 POTEAU OK HOT AC B 98 100.0 610.0 35-04-19 94-40-46 521F
KZBB 979 Artist/Song KZBB Adult Hits [320/205]

96.7 at 1852, ``Sports Radio 96.7 and 1310 The Ticket``. Also some
more times past local 96.9:

94.7 at 1901, ``KOKQ OKC, and Q947fm.com -- another call change, new
to me, not DX:

90.1 at 1906, Radio Kansas, Hutchinson, KHCC has totally captured from
KUCO OKC; also previous hour, classical with YL DJ while KUCO has none
since Kimberly Powell resigned for reasons unknown; and going from
local to syndicated now. Not DX

105.9 at 1908, ``KQ106`` by YL DJ, rock:
KQTZ 105.9 HOBART OK ADULT CONTEMPORARY THE MIX KQ106 100.0 311.0
34-52-15 99-17-36 3C47 KQTZ KQ-106 The Mix! Paradisebroadcasting kom

BTW, one TV station reported Hobart had record hi temp for this date
in OK if not entire USA, 95! I think but not able to find any
confirmation. Altus did hit 90 per NWS. 174/108

104.3 at 1909, rock; 1912 ``B1043.net``: WTFDA list gets no hits on
B1043 or B104.3 or with spaces as slogan, but website points to Great
Bend with nary a callsign. Note that 104/3 is they way it shows in PS
Info and Radiotext fields!:
KVGB-FM 104.3 GREAT BEND KS CLASSIC ROCK THE POINT 96.0 247.0 38-25-54

102.7 at 1915, Silver Dollar City in adstring, which is in Branson MO,
but finally ID ``KJ-103`` OKC; not a solid signal, but not DX, merely
KJYO

96.3 at 1919, plug iHeart app: Broad search on iHeart 96.3 leads to
Wichita. Its website shows nary a callsign except fine print at the
very bottom. Normally inaudible here, so it is DX:
KZCH 96.3 DERBY KS HD CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO CHANNEL 96.3 50.0 150.0
37-43-06 97-19-05 523F KZCH Song/Artist Song/Artist Rhythm and Blues
140/87

94.5 at 1920, Frank`s Snowplows is hiring - an example of indeed.com,
iHeart app ad, 1921 Topeka weather, ``The Big 94.5 Country`` starting
25 minutes of music:
WIBW 94.5 TOPEKA KS COUNTRY 94.5 BIG COUNTRY 100.0 370.0 39-01-34
95-55-02 69F8 WIBW-FM BIG 94.5 COUNTRY! WIBW-FM BIG 94.5 COUNTRY!
Country 354/220

94.1 at 1924, ``T-94`` or maybe another -e sounding single letter.
Nothing fits in TX or NE, but one of these:
KDNS 94.1 DOWNS KS COUNTRY KD 94 28.0 89.0 39-30-29 98-18-58 OR:
KZCD 94.1 LAWTON OK ROCK Z-94 35.0 178.0 34-32-59 98-32-21 523B Z94
Lawton/Fort Sill's Rock Station Rock - somewhat more likely. 204/127
Downs is in NC KS on US 24 not far from Nebraska 363/226

92.1 at 1925, ``The Real Country Giant, KFXI, Foxy 92``; not DX:
KFXI 92.1 MARLOW OK COUNTRY FOXY 92 100.0 166.0 34-40-50 98-01-02 1F92
KFXI Foxy 92 The Real Country Giant Request line 580-658-9384 Country

DX still incoming but time to suspend for lunch. APRS map at 1930 does
not include Nebraska, beyond southern KS, and into north TX. Then car
required for its original purpose. This hour of FMDXing led to at
least 3 hours of research and compilation. Each DX log a potential
learning experience (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
