Glenn Hauser logs March 23-24, 2020  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 24 2020

** ALASKA. 11755, March 24 at 1515, praise song in English, 1517
Russian announcement from KNLS, fairly holding its own against
slightly stronger 11760 RHC; still at 1556+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13780, March 24 at 1512, RHC still on in dead air, while
13700 is still modulating; no spurs at all. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7295, March 23 circa 1845, end of the detestable Steve
Bannon`s `War Room Pandemic` via IRRS, expecting a second hour which
is not aired here; music fill until 1859 IRRS ID explaining that its
transmissions are in ``compatible USB``, so best reception by USB
tuning. This is NOT the case via current Romania (or Bulgaria?), but
may have been years ago when they were really out of Milano!

The only reason now to choose USB or LSB on these full DSB/AM
transmissions is to avoid adjacent channel interference from the
opposite side; of which there is plenty. All this via UTwente SDR.
Even 7290 has splatter from 7280 - Vietnam listed, not 7285, as IRRS
immediately jumped down to 7290 at 1900 for WORLD OF RADIO this
Monday, socially distant 5 kHz from 7295 CRI Urumqi, East Turkistan,
land of brainwashing Uighurs.

Note: from next week in A-20, different situation with IRRS shows one
UT hour earlier. Registered to jump from 7295 to 7290 at 1800,
whatever the adjacents may then be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, UT Tue March 24 at 0100, WRMI still replaying
RTI relay test in Spanish, this one about the CV.

7780, UT Tue March 24 at 0200, WRMI replaying RTI Spanish relay test
dated March 17, automatically from one week ago rather than restoring
automation to previous whatever. See USA for another survey of what
WRMI is really airing these hours on other frequencies (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2026 monitoring:

Confirmed Monday March 23 at 1900+ on IRRS 7290, after a few FSN
headlines, VG via UTwente SDR, just jumped down from 7295. Note: from
next week WOR to be at 1800 instead on 7290.

Also confirmed UT Tuesday March 24 at 0100 on WRMI 7780. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. See also TAIWAN [non]. Survey of what`s really on WRMI in
the 01-03 period UT Tue Mar 24; I hope I`ve got this all right from my
convoluted scribbled notes; using direct or various remotes as needed.
I ignore 5950 presumed SMTV; 7570 & 7730 presumed TOMBS:

5010 // 5850, Robobibling in Spanish, Alameda Bible Fellowship (why in
the world are they doing this? The entire Bible is available read and
recorded by human beings, which ought to be more effective. Maybe God
is really a robot? Or at least more relatable to inhumans)

5800, RTI Spanish test repeat from a week ago
7780, WORLD OF RADIO 2026
9395, RAE in English; presumably old show as closed down by CV

5010 // 5850, Wavescan
5800 // 9395, Radio Tirana
7780, ``pilot episode`` of new show! Missed name, music. Not WS.
9455, ``God Bless America`` music break in Hal Turner`s favorite

5010, 5800, nothing audible at Alexandria VA, off
5850, music in Spanish; then distorted, similar to 7780 & 9395, not
7780, another repeat of RTI Spanish March 17 test; music // 9395 at
9955, Radio Praga, Spanish

5850, Slovakia in English, very distorted; // 9395 not distorted
7780, Ukraine in English
9455, rock music, oldies?
9955, Slovakia in Spanish
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, March 24 at 0612, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR instead
of TOMBS, but still modulating on 3215; 5935 DGS at S4-S9. 5890 not on
air, nor should it be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

GLENN HAUSER LOGS WEEKLY ROUNDUPS into one alfabetical file, posted
early UT Thursdays; but I do not intend to issue weekly notifications:

** CUBA. 13700 & 13780, March 23 at 1411, both RHC are OFF, so
consequently, NO spurs or leapfrogs on this band! Still on are 15230
and extremely distorted 15140, and China relay on 15700 (Glenn Hauser,

** OKLAHOMA [and non?]. Level 3 tropo blob over SW OK, and level 1
edge over OKC as far as Enid, leads to BAD TVDX signals on RF 20, 28,
31 and 35, March 23 circa 1500 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800 // 7780 // 9395 // 5010, UT Mon March 23 at
0200, Radio Taiwan Internacional via WRMI, opening Spanish program
dated Monday March 16, with `Galería Cultural`. 5800 quickly cut off
the air but the others continue. RTI tests were supposed to be last
week only, so I suspect the automation has not been reprogrammed to
resume `normal` programming. What`s next? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2026 monitoring: NOT confirmed
Sunday March 22 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, which has been reliable for many
months; instead, rock music, good signal at Rockport ME KiwiSDR;
checking WRMI skedgrid, it now shows yet another time for VORW Sundays
at 21-22.

However it also shows resumed an old Saturday-morning time for us,
1130 on 9955; to be confirmed, not by me, zzz. But it still also shows
Wed 2100 on 7780, despite having been replaced March 11 by TIAMS; not
certain what happened March 18.

Three WOR times continue to show on the System D schedule between 21
and 22 UT but believed imaginary, on *no* frequencies. To be certain,
check all possible WRMI frequencies, Tue 2130, Wed & Thu 2100.

Still confirmed UT Monday March 23 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, and 30
seconds later after double-IDs, on 9395. But that`s not all! Also on
5800, which I was checking expecting something else. It`s synchronized
with 9395 delay, not 7780. 5800 is good as usual but with squeal.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 23 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, F-G via UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 23 from 0302 on Area 51 webcast, and also
WBCQ 5130 heard via Alex VA SDR, back on air after absent last night.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 23 at 0345 the 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair S9

While it`s nice for everyone to have several chances of hearing WOR
half-hours on Sunday evenings, I do wish some of these could be on
Saturdays; when airtime is apparently consumed by higher-priority
programming. Next:

1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, UT Mon March 23 at 0052, guess what, classical music
still on WBCQ, altho March 16 was supposed to be the final airing of
`Encore`; quick check so unknown if new show or replay of old show.
Ooh, missed checking 0200 on WRMI 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Dear Readers,

Altho I can no longer produce DX Listening Digests every week, since January 17, I have been rounding up all my personal log reports each week into one alfabetical file; sometimes quoting info from elsewhere where relevant. These are now accessible to all, including websearching where reposed at www.w4uvh.net via:

Sunday, March 22 2020

** CUBA. 5025, March 22 at 0633, R. Rebelde is S9+20 but suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.

5040, March 22 at 0634, RHC no English but S9+40 of air dead except
for squeal, hum. 6145 is undermodulated, 6100 & 6060 good, 6000 off,
but see unID. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13620, March 22 at 1501, JBA carrier, the RHC leapfrog
mixing product of 13780 dead air over modulated 13700 another 80 kHz
below. 13780 carrier remains on after 1504* of 13700, so 13620 then no
longer exists. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 13700, Sunday March 22 at 1503, bonus frequency for weekly
RHC Esperanto, starting late, but chopped off the air at 1504* while
continues on 11760 and stronger but distorted 15140. At 1502 they were
all blabbing frequency list in Spanish bound to be incorrect.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Re: ``4015-USB, March 22 at 0041, S9+20 of folk
music, including lyrix ``Down on my luck``, ``Honduras, ``guns and
money``, S9+10.``

Sheldon Harvey replies: ``Glenn, on your logging above, the song being
played here is Lawyers, Guns and Money by Warren Zevon, on of my
favourite artists!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, March 22 at 0638, S9+20 of dead air except for some
squeal. Must be the WRMI-10 transmitter, nominally off after 0200; why
on now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6000-USB, March 22 at 0635, very weak 2-way surprised to
find here when surveying RHC, maybe Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1950 UT March 22

Sunday, March 22 2020

** BRAZIL. 9665.9, March 21 at 2235, and about an hour earlier, no
signal from RVM, which would be propagating if on, since 9630+ Radio
Aparecida succeeds (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA, 13620, March 21 at 1525, RHC is JBA, // 13780 & 13700 of
which this is a leapfrog mixing product; reverse on 13860 has
something stronger blocking, VOA Radio Ashna, 1430-1630 via Woofferton
UK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.0-AM, March 22 at 0037, C&W music, S7-S9
undermodulated; briefly heavy QRM from 2-way on 6930-LSB. Then I am
distracted by two more simulpirates on the 4 MHz band, q.v. At 0058
back to 6925, now S9+20 playing choral ``O, Canada``, 0059 SSTV
beepery. Several logs here as unID, but a couple with ID CYOT:
No view of the SSTV ID. So it`s ``Canadian`` -- or could be, which is
why I always file these unknown location pirates continentally rather
than countrily, not to overlook our northish neighbours. Off at 0105
check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4015-USB, March 22 at 0041, S9+20 of folk music,
including lyrix ``Down on my luck``, ``Honduras, ``guns and money``,
S9+10. Distracted by two simulpirates on 4175, 6925, qq. vv. Recheck
just in time at 0048 to hear ``Wolverine Radio`` ID, more music; still
going at 0107. Or something; this thread is rather confusing with some
other IDs reported as WDDR:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4175-USB, March 22 at 0044, S9+25 of rock music;
0100 live DJ announcement, ``X-FM, broadcasting to you from somewhere
under the stars; it`s one o`clock zulu``, acknowledging reports; 0102
a strange show tonight since his computer died; going mellower now;
address xfmshortwave@gmail.com mentions T-A reports; tnx to Mix Radio
International at the controls --- so relayed by that one? ``East of
the Rockies, but west of Normal`` (Illinois?); last two tunes will be
by Bruces, Coburn and Springsteen. ``From somewhere under the stars.``
0119 seems wrapping up over music, refers to HFU logs, requests; 0122
sign-off with 1:22 TC; e-mail address again; a request for some
Tool(?), ``Music to the power of X``; one more greeting over music to
someone in the wilds of Arkansas with a shiny loop antenna. Many many
logs here starting at 2243:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, March 21 at 1524, K6FRC, HIFER beacon from
Patterson, California, is quite audible vs CODAR after many morning
chex with none of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2026 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria reports: ``Fair/good signal of World of Radio#2026, March 21
1300-1330 15770 RMI 100 kW / 044 deg WEu English Sat World of

Also confirmed, Sat Mar 21 at 1952 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, JBA at
KiwiSDR, Peoria IL, too weak to compute when it started. Better via
same route starting at 0321 UT Sun Mar 22. Next:

0900 UT Sunday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB or 3210
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 9395 to NNW
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955 to SSE
0900 UT Monday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB or 3210
1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, March 22 at 0049 and later, no signal from Area
51/WBCQ, nor later; rather, too much pirate activity. See NORTH
AMERICA. WBCQ still not reactivated on 3265v or 6160v either (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, Mar 22 at 0108, WRMI with classical music, the bonus
frequency which Brice has not publicized for `Encore` now at 01-02 UT
Sundays; S9+30 here even tho aimed SSE; while primary 5850 is S9+45.
Repeat will be UT Mon 02-03 on 9455. Meanwhile, another survey of
what`s on the other WRMIs this UT Sunday at 0110+

5800, AWR Wavescan, Jeff interviewing George Ross of TWR at HFCC A-20
KL, recorded before it started; more to follow. Jeff mentions that
among the cancellations are NASB, which was scheduled for May 14-15 at

5950, SMTV
7570 & 7730, TOMBS
7780, `La Rosa de Tokio`, this week appreciating AWR with clips
including something on 5950; Moyabi, Gabon ID in English; 0128 AWR ID
in Thai(?)
9395, music, Oldies?
9455, different music, rock
9955, jamming and gospel? song

Partial recheck at 0130: 9395, 9455, 7780, 5800, 9955 all with
different musix I am not trying to unravel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday March 22 at 0020, after interminable
hamstuff and commercials by Ted --- he must be getting a good cut of
all that revenue --- Bob Heil starts his anonymous theatre organ show
from ``new`` studio in Belleville IL; ``Theatre Organ Not in the
Ozarx``? = TONITO. Sounds familiar; first tune is ``Everything`s
Coming Up Roses`` --- maybe keeping track of openers would cue us
about reruns, unless considered a theme. Considerable distortion here
at 0045 check, S9+45, and listening on webcast is not handy; recheck
0052, 5085 already back to rock music, so hardly exceeded 30 minutes
this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6950-LSB, March 22 at 0036, QSO in Spanish about antenna
mathematical principles. One can`t help but encounter these when
seeking N American pirates.

6920-LSB, March 22 at 0037, another QSO in Spanish. I will not call
them hams since they are not above 7000; who knows if they be
otherwise licensed, nor which borderside (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
