Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat March 23 at 2245 tune-in, LRA36
VG peaking S9+10 into Argentine SDR, weekly broadcast presumably from
2200. 2258 discussing meteorological and geomagnetic observations. I`m
trying to monitor Turkey at same time. Synch mode cannot lock onto the
reduced carrier, but I can hear it by tuning down to 15475.5 USB. 2310
mailbag, from Chimbote, Perú, Buenos Aires. 2312 on phone a colonel
who says he is in charge of RNASG, anniversary since base started in
1951y. Brief music breaks among more talk, but mostly music after 2335.
By 2347 noise bursts, QRN at SDR? or OTH radar, as I have to wrap this
report before presumed 2400* sign/off to come (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, March 23 at 0335, RHC English, S9+35/45 direct but
modulation sup/torted, unlistenable. And this is the ONLY non-jammer,
non-spy frequency on air! 4765 & 5025 both off, and no RHC found
elsewhere on 6, nor on 9, 11, 15 MHz bands; 13 MHz not checked but has
been vacant of RHC for many months. Even 6000 is off by 0624 recheck.
Something`s very wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 15140, March 23 at 1920, NO signal of RHC English
into Maryland SDR. SAWA. Nor at 2014 but there is a JBA fluttery
carrier on 11760 -- RHC? No, this semihour only, RFI Issoudun, FRANCE
in Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 23 at 0623, ORTM back to normal mod, after
noiseblob again last night (Glenn Hauser,OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 23 from 2250, I`m monitoring UTwente for VOT to
show up but it never does by 2301, when I check 9610 instead, and
there it is on 9610.009, already news in English. Yet again, erroneous
Emirler forgot to turn 9610 off after the 2130 English hour. But VG on
9610, S9+10/20 with slightly more fading than 5960. I`m trying to
monitor LRA36 at same time. 2313 both go to music. 2318 `Energy
Agenda` about plans to build a 1200-km highway and railway from the
Persian Gulf thru Iraq into Turkey, a more efficient means to
transport Gulf and Iraqi oil into Europe, especially vs Suez Canal and
Red Sea problems. First I`d heard about this ``new partnership
initiative``. 2329, `Turkey`s Geomarked [sic] Products` about
handicraft art from Trabzon. 2332 ``always-by-your-side`` promo,
mostly music thereafter except ``a-b-y-s`` again at 2341; abrupt
chopoff at 2346* while no move to 5960 this late, still clear
for the ChiCom XJRTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Not heard announcing yet, and would probably mess it up anyway, but
per HFCC here is the A24 English sked, all times earlied by one real
UT hour from March 31: 1230 17620, 1630 11660, 1830 9750, 2030 9875,
2200 11785, 0300 6165 & 7275. 11785 & 6165 are the NAm frequencies;
17620 also aimed thisaway across Europe. That means a foulup like
today would find the 2200 on 9875 instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, March 23 at 2012 UT, HIFER beacon, dash and PCO,
heard again JBA, from Pine, ColOrado (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, Sat March 23 at 1700*, R. Martí in Spanish to Ukraine
from Grimesland stops abruptly, no ID or s/off for it or VOA, cut
carrier after a few more sex. That`s the Sat/Sun-only channel at
13-17. FWIW, 17865 and M-F`s 17680 at 17-21 missing from HFCC A24
USAGM sked, but also never added to the B23 one (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2235 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday March 23 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+30/40 into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Saturday March 23 at 0400 on WTWW 5085, S9+25/40
into Missouri SDR. Some hiccups at start, I hope caused by receiver
only.

Also confirmed Saturday March 23 at 1552 the 1530 on SW Radio,
Germany, 6160.003 into UTwente, VG S9+8.

Also confirmed Saturday March 23 at 1725 the 1700 on WRN N America
webcast. Not until April 6 shall this shift to 1600 UT, once BST be in
effect, nevermind DST here two sesquiweeks earlier.

Also confirmed Saturday March 23 from 1830.7 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.002, S9+15 into UTwente, vs lightning crashes over Holland,
outskirts of major storm over Slovenia per Blitzortung.

Also confirmed Saturday March 23 after 1930 on WRMI webcast-only, 9955
not on.

Also confirmed from 1940 UT Saturday March 23 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,

** U S A. 5935, March 23 at 0332, PMS, S9+50 direct with squeal from
WWCR-2 = same unit as other hours on 7490, 12160, 9350. Something else
is notright at Nashville. No squeal on 5890, WWCR-4 which is also on

Hauser
** MALI. 5995, March 22 at 0700, ORTM S9 of non-DRM noise blob again,
after a few days of OK modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.901, March 22 at 1706, into KFS SE remote,
S7/S8 of music, 1709 YL voice announcement in presumed Japanese,
another one at 1713; extremely excited high-pitched voice at
1720-1722, like a child, artificial, cartoonish. Still at 1857,
drifted to 11514.904. Further chex: at 2142, 11514.91, S7/S8. Never
could make out an ID but pirate, Hikari FM, in Arizona or Sonora. A
lot better than the usual JBA offset carrier I can get direct. If you
can get into it vs all those wsprdaemons infesting it. Gary Pence has
also been hearing this via same remote. Is it simply relaying this
``online radio station from Japan, Radio Hikari``?
https://liveonlineradio.net/radio-hikari
Why are they always trying to get me to install something extra merely
to listen?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 22 at 1533, awful Riyadh roarer still
here, S5 direct vs local noise level S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Mar 22 at 2300, token English from SNR, S9/+10
direct holding its own against my noise level. Preview, about World
Theatre Day. News, first item about REE SW being defended in
parliament, necessary vs Internet being blocked; new? transmitter to
be installed at Noblejas. If & when a podcast for Mar 23 be
availablized, maybe we can copy exactly what was said. Chris Campbell,
Ohio, was also listening: ``The President endorsed shortwave in the
wake of the Ukraine war even with transmissions to North America. They
didn't mention any languages and they already do that even with
English. It could be a bunch of fluff, but I hope not. I remember
seeing someone actually had contact with Justin Coe. I wonder if he
would know?`` -- well, he retired so may be out of the loop.

2308 about upcoming Semana Santa with big processions such as in
Sevilla; apartments and even balconies-only are being rented out to
spectators for prices like 700 Euro. 2309 announced own new A24 sked
without any language details: M-F 15-23 to WAf/SAtl 15390; ME/IO
15520; 18-02 NAm 17855, SAm 17715. S/S same frequencies, all at 14-23.
I wanted to be sure about ``17855`` - Might have said 17885 believed
to be incorrect, but there was a distortion/fade right at that
instant. 2312, World Poetry Day was March 21; World Theatre Day will
be March 27 but celebrated on Sat Mar 30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, March 22 at 2259, JBA carrier direct vs HLNL, but
none heard at 2306 direct: was VOT on & off? By 2323 I`m on UTwente
when measured, now VG S9+30/45, during music. 2328 `Turkish Folk
Tales: The Nightingale` voiced by a different YL than usual. 2332
music. 2336 `That`s Why` the badax, something about food safety. 2342
``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2348 `a-b-y-s`` again, music.
2352 multi-lingual 2-minute ID filler reel. 2354 s/off as if the 1330
broadcast only. Something`s always awry at Ankara. 2355.5 IS plays
only a sesquitime before chopoff, no finesse, uncovering XJRTV in
Chinese; std genocidal denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 11720, Friday March 22 after 2105, VOA `Music Time in
Africa`, VG S9/+10 off the back from Grimesland as usual into central
USA such as the Missouri SDR. We have one more week to hear this,
March 29 before the A24 sked when this will be deleted, leaving only
6195 Botswana, useless to us back here. I enjoy some of the music but
zone out during the talk/interviews, especially since there is
competition such as `Samantha Brown`s Places to Love` on PBS/OETA
Create, about Corning NY glass and vicinity (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2235 monitoring: confirmed Friday
March 22 after 2030 on WRMI webcast only; 9955 not checked before 2100
but supposed to be off; as before may have cut on during last few
minutes of WOR; on after 2100.

Also confirmed Friday March 22 at 2105 right after VOA News, via World
FM, NZ webcast.

Also confirmed Friday March 22 at 2130 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323
kHz, VG S9+10 across Europe to UTwente.

Also confirmed Friday March 22 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, first SWBC of the
cycle, S7/S9 into Bonaire where it`s aimed, usually atop Cuban jamming
which persists. JBA direct vs my noise level of S9+10. Next:

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` WBCQ chex March 22 at 2353 into NH remote: 3265
off;
5130.336 ATATT S9/+8; 6159.934, TOMBS S9+5/10; 7489.968, FKB S9+20;
9330.000 WLCS Portuguese S9+22. 0100 March 23, I`m on 5130+ with ID as
R. *rump International on Radio Angela, and switch to `AAAWWW`:
opening remark mixed with WTO theme is `lies, lies, lies`` everywhere
except WBCQ for The Truth. Spot check 0030 all about `*rump
Derangement Syndrome`. `Bye. Supping toward the end, I might have
retuned in case he were reading some items from a new Free Radio
Weekly and stumble into the ``AI Trump`` pirate: that would have been
fun, but FRW is not promptly published this week (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 980, March 22 at 0300 UT, Spanish mentioning an iglesia in
Pasadena, Tejas. Surely KQUE, U4 5/4 kW, R. Aleluya,
Rosenberg-Richmond TX. Dominant signal now without even trying. Night
pattern has a notch due N but a lobe NW, so we are in between NNW. Day
pattern very similar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 22 at 0645, R. Vanuatu S5/S7 better than usual
direct, YL in Bislama talk -- frequent giveaway word ``b`long``, which
means ``of`` in Pidgin; 0646 into music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier check March 22 at 0643:
among likely spots, only 891, surely Algeria, and no beat from another
this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 9955, March 21 at 0626. WRMI off, Cuban pulse
jamming only like on 9565 where R. Martí is never on the air at night.
A24 skedgrid shows 9955 at 04-10 on Sat & Sun only with TOMBS while
System B is internet only mostly with WRN, otherstuff at 10-11.

Guess what? The current 9955 skedgrid shows NO Cuban exile programming
whatsoever anymore, so jamming even when it`s on the air is totally
unnecessary - with the possible exception of 15 minutes a week, UT
Friday 0100-0115, Radio Free America Latina! which is not about Cuba
in particular, from Programming page with wrong time:

``Radio Free América Latina [or Latinoamerica as on illustrated QSL in
English]
La Organización por la Defensa de la Soberanía de las Repúblicas de
América Latina, a través de su agencia informativa ha creado Radio
Free América Latina.

Radio Free América Latina tiene como propósito informar a la audiencia
sobre hechos conocidos y menos conocidos de las acciones del Partido
Popular de China sobre América Latina en los aspectos económicos y
políticos. Esto, con el fin de alertar de manera temprana a nuestras
naciones sobre las posibles consecuencias sobre las soberanías en un

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9955, Tue March 19 at 2350, WRMI-3 with continuous
RAE multilingual IDs: default wasteful filler instead of RAE
Portuguese on sked as M-F 23-24; like also happens at 1430-1500
``French`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 258 MCW kHz, March 19 at 0659 UT, ZSJ, 1000 watt NDB at
Sandy Lake ON, JBA vs line noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. VE1VDM/B beacon: see USA [and non]

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1120 kHz, March 19 at 2351 UT, KMOX in English
dominating; as in previous report, KETU Catoosa/Tulsa in Spanish was
back on air less than a sesquihour earlier at 2227 check. FCC shows
official March SS/SR times for KETU are 0030/1230 UT, so should be on
until 0030, but with Critical Hours power reduced from 10 to 7 kW
starting at 2230. April: 0100/1145 UT. Real sunset UT March 20 at
Enid: 0043; Vernal Equinox was at 0307 UT March 20 (Glenn Hauser, Enid
OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 19 at 2351, Riyadh roaring S6/S8 direct.
0040 March 20, still S9+5 into Maryland SDR, and still audible into
Kuwait, Qatar and Kenya SDRs; 0245 next check, gone from all of them.
Next check 1958 March 20, on again, S9+20 into UTwente. Vatican may
pray it will have QSYed again by Rosary Sunday March 24 at 1940.
Chopped off at 2021* as I still have UTwente in background. Back on by
2056 check into Maryland SDR; at 2208, S9/+10 direct (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, continued from last report, VOT English: altho s/on
2300 as if the 1330 broadcast only, March 19 at 2352 s/off with
all-wrong full English sked of local times called UTC; 2354 IS, 2356
restart IS with German IDs; 0000 March 20 timesignal 2 seconds late as
heard direct, S/on extraneous German. Off by next check 0020.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

in English, S9+30/40 into UTwente, 2300 s/on for the 1330 on 13635
only, news. Abruptly dumps off air at 2307.5*; back on *2309.3 but
only a few sex dead air, off again. XJRTV understation CCCCCCI not on
yet. *2310.7 TRT back on and stays, now 5960.002, so could it be a
different unit? 2311 badax with a talk about yogurt, could not
understand title of the segment. 2320 `Middle East and Turkey` on
multi-national corps. 2326.7 `Sports Panorama` about stupid ballgames.
2333.6 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2336 very lively song - we wonder
what they are about but they never tell us. Adds to the mystique? Then
another song, and more and more, nothing but songs until 2353 s/off
for the 1330 only, 2354 IS, now with XJRTV underaudible. 2356 pause
and restart IS with German IDs. Off 2357.5* uncovering XJRTV, std

** U S A. 13563+, March 20 at 2221, JBA dash and PCO, HIFER beacon in
Pine, ColoradO, I`ve heard before. But has been many weeks since I`ve
logged anything on this ISM band, not even K6FRC, despite scansthru at
least once a day at variable hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Reply to my inquiry where to find 10m ham beacon
info, no longer WI5V: ``Hi Glenn! WI5V is no longer the IARU Region 2
Beacon Coordinator and I understand that his beacon website is no
longer being updated, so perhaps he has taken the site down. I can
hear WI5V’s beacon on 28256 nearly every day, so it’s still
operating.

The new Region 2 Coordinator is Jerry Moyer, AC5JM, who also has a
beacon easily heard on 28258.5. You can access a list of active and
inactive Region 2 beacons that is updated daily from the website at
https://www.iaru-r2.org/en/on-the-air/beacon-network/
or directly from
https://storage.iaru-r2.org/index.php/s/mDCqpdaf8AXt3An
The list may then be downloaded as an Excel file and sorted. Another
list with worldwide coverage that is updated daily that you might find
helpful can be found at
http://www.dl8wx.de/bake_kw.htm
As I’ve mentioned before, there are about four or five of us who
contribute our 10-meter beacon logs semi-regularly to
ndblist@groups.io which are then used to update

Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees,
Dear Glenn: update, confirming WOR #2234, WRMI:

9395, below S7 signal, 2357 (45433), hissing sound, 2359, March 19
[Tue]
(Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Confirmed Tuesday March 19 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 into
Missouri SDR.

Confirmed Wednesday March 19 at 1410 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 direct and
noisy; however, was NOT on air at first check 1400, while 9395 & 9455
were OK.

Also confirmed Wednesday March 19 at 2030.5 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.002, S9/+5 into UTwente, following ADDX in German. I wish they
would not allow the closing theme of that to overlap start of WOR.

Maryland SDR. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

UNIDENTIFIED. 26425 USB, March 20 at 2210, 2-way in Russian? Mentioned
``dvatset`` a few times, but also ``polski`` -- Slavic, anyway, one
side S9+10/20 stronger than the other. Surely not from Europe now.

26555 LSB, March 20 at 2214, multi-way pileup/talkovers, partly in
Spanish. Lots more freebanders above 26.6, and on both sides of the
legal CB; yet relatively little activity on the 10m beacon band above
28.15 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
