Hauser
** EGYPT. 9439.995, Nov 3 at 2201, R. Cairo, news in English, lofi and
somewhat distorted but tolerable modulation, S9+30 into UTwente.
2232-2241 Qur`aning snippets and lessoning in English, translating?
Violating Separation Of Mosque And State. After all, the Fribbath has
just passed. Distorted music, 2243 s/off, more distorted music to
2244.5 silence, to 2245* off. At least for B23, there is no more BBC
to collide on 9440 at 22-23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21640.12V, Nov 3 at 1515, JBA MiniTransAt marine weather
info from Issoudun, as always way off-frequency and constantly varying
up and down. Only other 13m signals are 21660 and 21485; see SUDAN
SOUTH [and non], and UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 9445, Nov 3 at 0649, stilted English immediately
recognizable as VOK, also distorted, S2/S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 11510, Nov 3 at 1528, talk and also
stronger 11550; I`m looking for Dengê Gel and Recep the Turkish
jammer, but EiBi shows both are R Free Asia in Korean at 15-17 via
TINIAN and SAIPAN respectively; did not realize they should be //
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 11930, Nov 3 at 0652, RRI English is JBA beneath
Cuban pulse jamming against no Martí ever at this hour (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Friday Nov 3 at 2300, token English from SNR,
timesignal, s/on with program preview, news. At 2317 it`s an interview
about the status of a lagoon at a national park in southern Spain due
to climate change, vs demands for more irrigation; S9+20/30 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 21485, Nov 3 at 1515, S6/S9 of talk but
modulation breaking up rapidly. Per EiBi this is R. Tamazuj based in
Holland, 1430-1600 via Issoudun, FRANCE. B23 Aoki misses this one
completely. To make it as obscure as possible, HFCC lists this only as
JRC in the Apd language. Only one of three 13mb signals along with
21640V also France, and 21660, see UNID (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 12125, Nov 3 at 1542, S8/S9 Chinese mixing with
another lang at equal level. It`s CNR1 jamming vs RFA Tibetan at 15-16
via TINIAN. The imperialist ChiCom occupiers could at least have the
courtesy to employ Tibetan language jamming but probably from outside
Tibet due to skipzone (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9700, Nov 3 at 0652, S6/S8 talk sounds more Turkish than
Japanese. TRT at 310 degrees sked 04-07; NHK at 305 degrees at 05-08
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.017, Nov 3 at *2304, VOT cuts on late, JIP
news in English, S9+30/35 into UTwente. Something`s always erroneous
at Emirler. I was listening from 2253 on 5960.000 to snippets of
Chinese martial music cutting on and off, i.e. PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi,
nominal start 2300 per EiBi, from EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist
ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems. But once TRT is
on, it obliterates XJPBS which was only S9/+10. Almost; still audible
as an understation during pauses. Unfortunately VOT suffers from a
constant squeal, like WEWN. I`d rather not listen. In background at
2314, I recognize the 2-minute multilingual ID filler reel. By 2338
drifted to 5960.018. At 2340 I turn on UTwente`s Autonotch, but moxnix
as the squealing is not a constant pitch. Narrow filter to 2.15 kHz
rids it but makes what`s left even more lofi. 2352 s/off sked as usual
mentions only 4 *other* English broadcasts in jumbled order, never
this very one: 1330 on 13635, 1930 on 6050, 2130 on 7285, 1730 on
9660. Wait a minute: 2130 is supposed to be on 9610, while 7285 is at
0400! I bet this never gets corrected in the next pentamonth. And
still going at 2400 opening extraneous German. At 2417 I realize
that`s Chinese again instead of German, so TRT has turned off in the
last few minutes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 356 MCW kHz, Nov 3 at 0704 UT, ND beacon ODX is JBA vs S9
line noise level here which is worst on LW, making it a struggle to
hear any beacons. 25 watts from Ord, Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 11870, Nov 3 at 1530, ``Welcome to the Voice of
America in Burmese``, i.e. Myanmarianese; S5/S6. I thought he said
Chinese but Burmese listed: one of those ``-ese`` langs. This also
explains why it`s not being jammed. Via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, of course
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2215 monitoring: confirmed Friday
November 3 at 2157 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+17
into nearby Noale SDR, and no CCI audible; new shifted time. However,
some storm crashes from NW Greece/SerboCroatia coast right across
Adriatic. Flooding in Tuscany must not have reached to Villa Estense.

Also confirmed Friday November 23 at 2200 first SWBC on WRMI 9955,
S9/S7 into Bonaire SDR with Cuban pulse jamming. From next week: 2300.

woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490 -74 Hz = 7489.924, UT Sat Nov 4 from 0000, WBCQ,
S9+20/30 into Maryland SDR, a new `AAAWWW`, this time as a Christian
of Jewish heritage, Allan is heartbroken about the rise of
anti-Semitism on campuses. Wars in Ukraine and Israel: all ``because
of a stolen elexion``, Angela asserts. And Democrats = Communists =
Marxists = Satanists, right? `Bye (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1682.7 & 1637.3 approx., Nov 3 at 0700 UT, matching
spurblobs, both about 22.7 kHz from 1660, i.e. out of WTOU ``The
Touch``, Kalamazoo, as recently discussed in this IRCA thread:
https://groups.io/g/IRCA/topic/101970919
The lower one obscured here by local on 1640 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 9960, Nov 3 at 0650, RV music S3/S4, unusually
stronger than 9955 WRMI which is a JBA carrier beneath Cuban jamming.
I`m hearing 9960 just about every night before 0700 tho not always
reported (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [non]. 11700, Nov 3 at 1529, S Asian lang, 1529 VR IS,
S5/S7. It`s Malayalam at 1510-1530, via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES;
violating Separation Of Church And State. Why is the USG propagating
one particular RCC sect? O yeah, it`s an ``exchange`` as if USAGM need
relays via Vatican (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier check Nov 3 at 0710 UT:
JBA on 621 and 711 kHz, surely RNE Canarias and neighborly Moroccan
from occupied ``Spanish West Africa`` as in mwlist. Such ending in --1
are axually easier to spot than further splits, since the --0 N
American stations provide no splash and quieten the frequency when
tuning USB. Same would apply to those in --9 if I ever tuned in LSB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 21660, Nov 3 at 1515, algo here one of 3 sigs on 13m
besides 21485, 21640V. Aoki shows BBC Somali at 14-16 via UAE but only
on Day 7 = Saturday, and this is Friday. HFCC and EiBi show nothing
after 1500 but until then BBC Somali at 14-15 is via Vatican M-F, UAE
Sat/Sun; really, why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Nov 2 at 0217 UT, K17JN-D, 3ABN network, Enid`s
only local TV, is back on the air. I neglected to report Oct 31 at
1547 that it was totally off the air. But still, NO audio or video
modulation, just silence and black, as it had been since at least
October 7! SAWA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 17790, Nov 2 at 1452, S7/S9 of classic rock,
WRMI warmup? NO, not yet, soon announcement in Romanian. But at *1456
WRMI comes on with IS & ID loop by ex-bishop Bob Biermann. No break or
RRI IS at 1458 as this is a HS relay until 1600, but accurate
timesignal at 1500 and more music as WRMI starts Radio Africa. Jeff &
RRI must have decided that this hour overlap between Galbeni and
Okeechobee would not be a problem in respective target areas France
and South America, and possibly it`s not, but why not avoid it anyway?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U A E [and non]. 21660, Nov 2 at 1449, S7/S9 listed as BBC Somali
via DHA; echoey. Only other 13m signal sounds just the same, on 21485,
S7/S9, but listed as ISS, FRANCE, JRC in the Apd language, Nov 2 at
1447. My log scribble looks like 21495 but must have been this again,
and HFCC has nothing on 21495 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 17780, Nov 2 at 1454, S7/S9 algo here. HFCC shows BBC in
Hausa via ASCENSION (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17700, Nov 2 at 1850, S9/+20 open carrier, VOA warming up
Grimesland, back here for French on ``VOA Afrique`` at 1930 as sked

Hauser
** EGYPT. 9440-V, Nov 1 at 2215, dead air at S9/+10 very slightly on
the low side correlating with R. Cairo, 9439.995 when measured
previously. But now with BFO offset, hear rapid warbling/wobbling of
transmitter. Something`s egregious in Egypt, amiss at Abis (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15680, Nov 1 at 2222, S9/+10, YL hymn solo in unID language.
HFCC shows KSDA in Nij. I believe we have been over that before (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ISRAEL [non]. 7570, Nov 1 at 2307, this WRMI relay of WRN block now
carries R. Poland for the full hour, no longer ISRAEL at 2330. First,
discussion of All Saints/Souls Day celebrations in Poland. At 2330
discussion of populism. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6932.9 USB, Nov 1 at 0222, ghoulish sounds as I tune
in late for Hallowe`en piracy, only this. At first hard to pinpoint
strange noises, 6935? Brief talk sounds best tuned as above. HFU:
``KIPM Flying Dutchman via Undercover Radio 6933``
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,120503.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 1 at 2300, token English from SNR is S9+15/30 into
Maryland SDR, previewing subject to be interview with visiting
American crime novelist S A Cosby [?]. Not interested, and right into
that, skipping any news since it`s a holiday - and as everyone knows,
nothing ever happens on holidays; or in the case of SNR English, any
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday; in English, anyway (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Nov 1 at 2254, UTwente is getting nothing
but Chinese martial music, S9/+10, no more than +001 Hz, i.e. CNR from
EAST TURKISTAN. I`m also monitoring SPAIN elsewhere and did not notice
exactly when VOT cut on but there it is at 2303 with news and also
within 1 Hz of accuracy. Tho S9+30/40, there is still lite QRM from
the understation, i.e. CCCCCCI = Chinese Communist Chinese Language
Co-Channel Interference. 2319 `Gripping Piles` on whether
procrastination is a disease or just laziness; 2323 multi-lingual ID
filler reel; 2325 `Weekly Commentary` by some prof about Palestine vs
Israel. 2352 s/off sked claims to have English at 02-03 & 07-08
``UTC`` to N America, but those are really UT+3 local times! Yet the
clueless announcer concludes that the ``23-00``and ``04-05``
broadcasts are pre-recorded! 2353 IS starts playing. 2356 pause and
restart IS now with German IDs inserted. Here we go again. 0000 still
going with sign-on in German with same news sounder we hear in
English, but chopoff at 2400:40 or so, immediately uncovering loud
Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28260 CW, Nov 1 at 2211, lotsa 10m beacons but I pick this
one: EEE VVV DE KC4QLP/B - ID thrice. WI5V roster: ``28.260 KC4QLP C
LITTLE FALLS, NEW YORK # 10 WATTS, 5/8 VERTICAL New 2/28/2022``. Tsk,
not Antarctica, as KC4 was originally prefix for Americans there, then
allowed anywhere.

** U S A. 5800, Nov 1 at 0202, two American accented guys chat about
nuclear power, thorium, type II diabetes. I`m checking this WRMI to
reconfirm whether still relaying KBS World Radio via WRN, but this is
not that, nor any station with news on hour. Did not get ID but find
out later. 0230 recheck, NHK World Radio Japan is starting `Newsline`.
In A23 this was on WRN at 0130 UT.

Therefore, WRN North America stream has already moved everything an
hour later, as if *we* were already off DST, causing needless
confusion. And before it at 0200 was Deutsche Welle. KBS hour now
starts at 03 instead of 02 - but WRMI WRN relay block remains at
02-03, whatever it may contain. No doubt the same shift apply to any
other WRN relay blox on WRN, e.g. Israel had been at 2330 on 7570, now
out of it at 0030.

WRMI skedgrid shows the following World Radio Network times on SW
[more in internet only], never with any content details, and barring
any deliberate changes to compensate, all stay at the same UT as
before except for the one on 9955. Investigate what`s really in them
now, guided by the outdated WRN A23 program sked, adding one real UT
hour to it:

** CUBA. 11845, Oct 31 at 0645, S3/S5 pulse jamming against nothing on
a Radio Martí daytime-only frequency abandoned years ago. See also
ROMANIA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21640.18V, Oct 31 at 1533, MiniTransAt, S3/S5 direct, once
again constantly oscillating; at 1543 with race rankings, mostly in
French, UTwente reads out min 21640.124, max 21640.156 at S9+5/15;
1544.5 starts classic rock music medley fill, only a few sex of each
tune which must drive Shazaam mad? 1558 brief announcement, and
closing James Bond theme to 1600*. No 17800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 11930 AM, Oct 31 at 0642, with Cuban jamming
adds up to S7/S9, readable but annoying. NOT DRM as shown on earlier
version of RRI own sked. But not any more:

It also includes countless wooden transmissions as if all senders were
in use. Would DRM do better against jamming? Doubt it. HFCC format

has no column for DRM or not, tho could be placed under NOTES. The
master frequency sked, still not updated since Oct 27, does claim
11930 is N = numérique = digital; NOT.

Meanwhile received reply from English Dept., to my previous two logs:
``Hi, Glenn, We're sorry about this whole business. Unfortunately
there is not much we can do about it :/ We are however happy to hear
about reception quality on your frequency. Best wishes, The English

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Oct 31 at 0640, S9+45 of dead air instead of TOMBS on
WWCR-3; as happens periodically: no one paying attention at 1300 WWCR
Ave. We are so distraught (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. George McClintock replies at 0404 UT Oct 31 to my inquiry
about WTWW unheard for a few days: ``Plate loading control went south.
Repaired but must now be calibrated. HOPE for tomorrow return to 5085.
9475 the next day, if all goes well. George McClintock 10-30-2023``.
But still neither heard before or after 22, 23 UT Oct 31 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7467-7520 approx., Oct 31 at 0658, multiple tones /
carriers beating against each other, what? Peaks circa 7486 at S9+25.
These would blow away WBCQ if it were on now, which it is entitled to
be, at 19-09 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9699 USB, Oct 31 at 0703, 2-way in Spanish, INTRUDER. No
broadcasters audible on 9700 to QRM, but HFCC shows Turkey 04-07,
Japan 05-09, NZ 09/18, Algeria 00-03, Romania 01-03. Cuba also
possible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 11845, Oct 31 at 0645, S3/S5 pulse jamming against nothing on
a Radio Martí daytime-only frequency abandoned years ago. See also
ROMANIA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21640.18V, Oct 31 at 1533, MiniTransAt, S3/S5 direct, once
again constantly oscillating; at 1543 with race rankings, mostly in
French, UTwente reads out min 21640.124, max 21640.156 at S9+5/15;
1544.5 starts classic rock music medley fill, only a few sex of each
tune which must drive Shazaam mad? 1558 brief announcement, and
closing James Bond theme to 1600*. No 17800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 11930 AM, Oct 31 at 0642, with Cuban jamming
adds up to S7/S9, readable but annoying. NOT DRM as shown on earlier
version of RRI own sked. But not any more:

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Oct 31 at 2320, NO signal from VOT English into
Maryland SDR; nor UTwente but which is getting EAST TURKISTAN just
fine already. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. VOT not on 9610
either as overrun tho UTw gets trace of algo -1 Hz low (Glenn Hauser, OK,
