Hauser
** BELIZE. 18120-USB, Oct 8 at 2126, QRZs from V31JW with American
accent, never saying where he be. Contacts VA7GI and in NW Oklahoma,
also audible, W5EIY, who in fact is in Enid: see OKLAHOMA. QRZ.com:

``V31JW Belize
James W. Westfall
8505 Bacardi Drive
Dallas, TX 75238
USA

NT5V will be active from Belize October 5-12, 2019. I will upload all
QSO's to LOTW when I get home``. Nowhere any info about *where* in
Belize he may be; secret? Is the OSOB on 17m, and zero broadcast
signals on 16m [how can 17m be shorter than 16m? Rounding errors?]. He
soon closes, ``73 for now`` saying V31CC will soon come up on 30m.
That`s another OM from Dallas, NN5E, Vernon H. Berry. They are
obviously together, probably sharing rig (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 341 kHz, Oct 9 at 0644 UT, 500 watt ND Beacon
dash and YYU still on, a day before decommissioning in Kapuskasing,
Ontario; and still no sign of local Enid 25-watter EI. When I get a
chance, must visit Woodring Airport to find out the fate of EI. Of
course, some beacons are turned on only at certain hours, or when an
incoming flight requests (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 335 kHz, Oct 9 at 0645 UT, dash and ND beacon YLD, which is
1000 watts from Chapleau, Ontario, not sked for decommissioning. Seems
first time I`ve logged it but Harold Frodge, Michigan has reported it
numerous times since at least 2006y. Chapleau is between Timmins and
SSM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 336 kHz, Oct 9 at 0646 UT, ND beacon BV with long pauses
and no dash, heard while tuned to 335, mixing with YLD, but different
pitch of course. Is 100 watts from Quebec City - Champlain per
dxinfocentre.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 332 kHz, Oct 9 at 0647 UT, ND beacon dash and QT, 1000
watts from Thunder Bay, Ont., and mixing with IC, Wichita KS, 400
watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 328 kHz, Oct 9 at 0648 UT, ND beacon dash and YTL, 1000
watts from Big Trout Lake, Ontario. Wikipedia explains:

``Oji-Cree First Nation Reserve --- Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, also
known as Big Trout Lake First Nation or KI for short, is an Oji-Cree
First Nation reserve in Northwestern Ontario and is a part of Treaty
9. The community is about 580 km north of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Big
Trout Lake is a large lake in Northern Ontario. The Fawn River flows
into it from the west and drains it from the east. The reserve of the
Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation, also known as Big Trout
Lake, is located on Post Island on the lake's northern shore.`` Logged
before, April 1, as in DXLD 19-14:
https://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1914.txt

A surprise lightning storm around Enid suggests it`s high time I
disconnect and QRT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 9 at 0626 while tuned to q.v. UNIDENTIFIED 2-way on
6095-USB, Morse CQ, CQ overrides out of 6100-AM RHC as `DXers
Unlimited` is opening at this odd time instead of nominal :30. Ailing
Arnie voice first about Tokelau (spelt) DX-pedition. Ends at 0632
already, into mandatory anti-American segment, `Connecting the Dots`
this time about ``Philippine resistance to the American Empire``
(which Cuba missed out on joining, tsk2). // 6165 also with decent
signal and modulation for a change; 6000 & 5040 off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6923-LSB, Oct 8 at 2340, pirate with classic tunes
about Sunshine, 2343 announcement about testing and pausing for
replies from any other pirates out there, hello, hello, hello? None.
2344 Johnny Cash song; CQ Radio calling South America, 2347 ID once as
``Anti-Trump Radio``; inviting music requests; 2358 about QSL cards
from CQ Radio, says he has been busy but will do SSTV QSL next time
he`s on. ``Beam-me-up-Scotty`` with reverb, 2359 ``Good night`` and
off. More reports here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,58957.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 18120-USB, Oct 8 at 2127, ``W5EIY in northwest Oklahoma``
contacting V31JW in BELIZE, q.v. Axually right here in Enid, so I look
him up in QRZ.com for the record:

``BILL C NOKES
2802 NIGHTENGALE LANE
ENID, OK 73703
USA

Hello! My name is Bill, and I have been W5EIY since 1954.

I was born in Weatherford, OK, grew up on a farm there, graduated HS
in 1957 and headed off to Oklahoma State University for six years to
get degrees in Animal Science & Horticulture. After OSU, I moved to
Texas for about eight years, then came to Enid in 1973 to look after
parents -- both my wife's and my own.

After a few years in the banking business I started off on a new
career as a sales rep for a nail and air nailer company, covering four
states and driving about 5,000 miles a month. In 2012, after 35 years
on the road, I retired to have more time to play radio and encourage
our eight grandchildren in their sports, music and theatre
endeavors.

My rig is a Kenwood TS-570S running 80-90 watts. On 40M I use a 33-ft
long inverted L. Just 33 feet? Yeah, covenants keep me in the stealth
mode. The end-fed wire sneaks up 15 feet vertically alongside my
workshop/shack, then runs 18 feet horizontally--never higher than the
peak of the wood shake roof.

My alternate antenna is a 44-ft end-fed sloper with a 9:1 UnUn.

I enjoy both CW and SSB operation, especially late night DX-ing and
rag-chewing. Plus, experimenting with simple antennas, including
portable ones. With K5ECI, another "Bill in Enid," we are assembling
a go-kit around my Alinco DX70TH to use in case of a storm or other
emergency -- or even for day-trips to local state parks.

Hope to CU soon. Good DX to all! And let's keep pounding that brass.

PHOTOS: (UPPER-L) My station is the TS-570S, power supplies Samlex
1223 and MFJ-4225, speaker, HamKey and Speed-X straight keys, and a
hand mike. Just the basics, but what great fun!
(UPPER-R) SKCC, FISTS, WAC and WAS certificates earned with my peanut
whistle set-up. Those deer antlers are from a well-remembered hunting
trip with my son when he was ten years old.
(LOWER-L) If you have worked another "Bill in Enid," that would
probably be K5ECI, on right in the yellow vest. We are at the annual
Cherokee Strip parade celebrating the 1893 Land Run with some
longhorns right in our hip pockets.
(LOWER-R) Mug shot of a proud member of the Enid Amateur Radio Club``
(QRZ.com via gh, Enid, DXLD)

** U S A. 5970, Oct 9 at 0635-0640+, WEWN carrier with no modulation
is cutting off and on at an extremely regular pace of 84 times per
minute; why? Probably no one around Vandiver to notice in the
nightmiddle; or if personned, dozed off. WEWN is a neat source of new
anomalies. But we are meanwhile deprived of Spanish Roman Catholicism
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6095-USB, Oct 9 at 0622, 2-way in English, JBA because
of heavy splash from strong 6100 RHC. Why in the world are they here
nor at least on LSB which would have been much better? (6090 Anguilla,
of course, is absent.) Unseems formal, urgent or military, just random
ham-like ragchew. At first only one side audible, then detectable
contact (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1634 UT October 9

Glenn Hauser logs October 7-8, 2019  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, October 08 2019

Hauser
** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 7 at 2050, despite previous log as missing
at 1439, CHR is back on and still `no reports received` and distorted
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 7 at 2052, open carrier prior to 2100 RHC
transmission, and no sign of Romania English scheduled until 2100; nor
on its // 13650 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 8 at 0556, RHC English at S9+10, but
undermodulated; remains best of the sorry lot, as 6165 is JBA carrier,
6000 is S9 but just barely modulated; and 5040 is off already.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, Oct 8 at 1315, VG S9+10 signal from
Shiokaze in Japanese and piano from JSR; rivals the signal WWCR
achieves earlier in the night, despite yesterday`s remark that JSR was
JBA. Really good opening from E Asia this morning, and no sign of
Tibet CCI; leads me to check on the other more fluid clandestines; see
KOREA SOUTH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6045, Oct 8 at 1317, amid all the South/North
Korean jumbling, also Korean? talk and music mix here no jamming
audible; one station or two? Aoki shows:
``6045 1200-1458 TJK National Unity Radio Kor Dushanbe-Ya 1-7``
Dushanbe sunset 1258 UT, so possible grayline but would not expect
this much signal from Tajikistan rather than E Asia. Ron Howard
replies, ``Yes, after 1200+, I normally have strong reception of
National Unity Radio. Some days with strong jamming. Ron`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. Seems Voice of the People, and Echo of Hope
are shifting frequencies, mostly by 5 kHz, from one day to the next to
keep the NK jammers alert. My observations October 8 at 1316-1326:

VOP: 3480 not 3485; 3910; 6600 not 6595.
EOH/VOH: 3985 but a JBA carrier on 3990; 4890 not 4885; 5995 not 5990
but a JBA carrier on 5990; 6350 not 6348; and at 1356, 9105 not 9100.
I could also hear noise jamming on: 6350, 6600, 3985, 3910. Note that
4890 was NBC PNG`s flagship frequency should they ever reactivate.

Ron Howard had already posted to WOR iog a few hours earlier Oct 8:

``Voice of the People, at 1046+: 3910 // 3480 // 3935 // 4450 // 6525
// 6600.
Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1042+: 3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 //
9105. Ron``

He has also had much better reception of 9105: ``Hi Glenn, Interesting
to note the difference between your location and mine regarding 9105
reception. My audio today of 9105
http://bit.ly/2IxZ9Up
At the start and end of the language lesson English/Chinese/Korean?),
a singing jingle ("When we arrive, the party will come alive").``

Then Wolfgang Bueschel replied to Ron: ``KOREAs TRACED Oct 8th in
Hiroshima and Tokyo SDR's, 1430-1500 UT mostly scratch noise jamming

Voice of the People, at 1046+: 3910 // 3480 // 3935 // 4450 // 6525 //
6600:
3479.987 S=9+40dB BUBBLE jamming type instead.

6506 to 6522 kHz wideband jamming range.

** U S A. 2097.3, Oct 8 at 0600, no signal detected from beacon A,
which used to ID in CW every dekasecond from anywhere but Quartzsite
AZ; nor some previous recent chex, as it always used to penetrate even
noisy nightpaths. Is anyone still hearing it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2002 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday October
8 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9-S8. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Oct 7 at 2057, WTWW-1 on neither possible
frequency; a while ago noted 9475 back on but unlogged. Extremely
irregular, more off than on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, UT Tue Oct 8 at 0557, S5-S7 of dead air from WWCR,
which seems to happen more often on Tuesdays; about the same level as
modulated 5935. Others: 4840 & 3215 both VG, the latter somewhat
undermodulated BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Oct 8 at 1326, S5-S7 of dead air; should be enough
signal to detect modulation if any; more likely Indonesia`s English
hour than Bougainville (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5984.73, Oct 8 before 0100, JBA carrier, cuts off and on
as I measure it. Maybe something local; only 5985 scheduled at this
time is Myanmar, already a sessquihour after sunrise there (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 341 kHz, Oct 7 at 0628 UT, dash and YYU NDB ID, 500 watts
from Kapuskasing, Ontario, may be the final time I log it since
http://dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
reminds us in red YYU is one of those TO BE DECOMMISSIONED 2019-10-10.
I wonder how much the Kapuskasingers will miss it? No sign of Enid`s
only beacon EI on 341, not that its weak 25 watts were an obstacle.
See also USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 7 at 1439 and 1601 chex, no signal from CHR.
Propagation is fine, with WINB-DRM on 15115-15125 and CHU on 14670.
Either it broke down completely, or someone at Trenton Military
finally noticed it was totally out of order with ``no report
received`` from everywhere, and distorted modulation. EiBi shows sked
as 1010-2400 on 15034 and 2310-1100 on 6754, which implies two
transmitters but I was hearing exactly the same distortion on 6754;
maybe the nominal overlap allowed for variability in QSY times.
Presumably supposed to be continuous unlike civilian Gander Radio.
Will CHR be repaired and resume receiving reports? For years it has
been remarkably unreliable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Oct 7 at 0614, no signal from Radio Rebelde which is
normally 24h. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13632 & 13767 approx., Oct 7 at 1354, only traces of RHC
spurblobs at first order from 13700; fortunately nothing on second
order to QRM 13565 K6FRC, see USA. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Oct 7 at 1434, CRI Plus English relay is S9+10 but
suptorted modulation. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 15715, Monday Oct 7 at 1357, music and Chinese talk, like
CRI might do at this hourpart, VP S3-S6, but no, soon recognizable
with gospel harmony, AWR English ID and theme, Voice of Hope, also IDs
in French, German (? fade), Italian, English website, next program in
Mandarin, and into that. First expected to be from KSDA or somewhere
in Asia, yet zero signal from e.g. 15575 South Korea to North America.
No, this is 250 kW, 75 degrees from Nauen at 1300-1330 only, in Cmn on
weekdays, Uighur on weekends! Hmm, would the ChiCom be less likely to
persecute and brainwash Adventist Uyghurs (how many?) than Moslem
ones?? It might pay to pretend to be Christian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9105, Oct 7 at 1435, JBA carrier here instead of 9100
as I start my 9 MHz bandscan --- I bet it`s Echo of Hope in another
5-kHz shift. Yes, Ron Howard has just reported on this and all the
others to the WOR iogroup:

``On Oct 7, with some changes in the clandestine frequencies.
Voice of the People, at 1044+:
3910 (ex 3905).
3480 (ex 3475).
New 3935 (ex 3930).
4450, no change.
New 6525 (ex 6520).
6600 (ex 6595).

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1050+:
3985 (ex 3980).
New 4890 (ex 4885).
5995 (ex 5990).
New 6255 (ex 6250). My audio of the news, at http://bit.ly/30PvImZ
6350 (ex 6348)
New 9105 (ex 9100).
(Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, WOR iog via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Oct 6 at 1846-1852 UT at least, dead air from KUCO
Edmond/OKC, vs occasional breakthrus of modulating KHCC Radio Kansas,
Hutchinson (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 341 kHz, Oct 7 at 1323 UT almost an hour after 1232 sunrise,
OIN is the only beacon audible on 341, no sign at this hour of YYU in
Kapuskasing; see CANADA. OIN is 25 watts from Oberlin KS.

No sign either of Enid`s only beacon EI on 341 from Woodring Airport
(which has a brand-new manager, terminal building and runways being
refurbished as Vance AFB also uses it), not that its weak 25 watts
were an obstacle. There are plenty more 341s as yet unheard from
Alaska, Greenland, Canada, Mexico and all over Lower 48.

I tend to check 341 first on ``LW`` beaconscans. Other regulars nearby
are 350 RG from Will RoGers WA in OKC; 255 SW Stillwater; and 515 PN
Ponca City which is strongest of all, tho listed only minimum power of
25 watts (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 395 kHz, Oct 7 at 1324, ND beacon CA, which is 25 watts from
Newton-Harvs KS. What is Harvs? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 7 at 1353, K6FRC beacon from CA audible again
today after a long spell; sudden new spurt of activity, or suddenly
favorable propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2002 monitoring: confirmed, Sunday
October 6 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 7 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9, after
usual Rudy Espinal ID, but then Bob Zanotti tried to ID again, but I
cut him off; sorry, Bob! Much stronger S9+10/20 on // WRMI 9395.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 7 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, JBA here, better R4
on UTwente SDR in Holland (and by now 9395 not with WOR has faded out
completely to here; SID?)

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 7 from 0301:03 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.977,
noisy S8-S9; also JBA via UTwente SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 7 at 0330 on WRMI webcast, but it`s horribly
distorted! While 9955 is inaudible. Next:

1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0830 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 3210-USB NSW [another episode]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
