** CANADA [and non]. Lots of NDBs, among many others skipped past this
time, Feb 17 between 0737 and 0757 UT, not in order logged but
rearranged by frequency; see also USA for some more at same session:

218-MCW, Feb 17 at 0757 UT, dash and RL, 980-watt NDB at Red Lake,
Ontario

257-MCW, Feb 17 at 0755 UT, dash and XE, 100-watt NDB at Saskatoon,
Saskatchewan; mixing with JYR, 25 watts in York, Nebraska

269-MCW, Feb 17 at 0753 UT, dash and UDE, 50-watt NDB at Delta,
Manitoba

274-MCW, Feb 17 at 0751 UT, dash and YPM, 25-watt NDB at Pikangikum,
Ontario, ``back on``. 1741 km = 1082 stmi, or 43.28 miles per watt

287-MCW, Feb 17 at 0749 UT, dash and ZWG, 50-watt NDB at Winnipeg /
Stoney, Manitoba. Much rarer than plain old WG on 248 with 20x power

328-MCW, Feb 17 at 0745 UT, dash and YTL, 1000-watt NDB from Big Trout
Lake, Ontario.

344-MCW, Feb 17 at 0740, dash and YC, 100-watt NDB from Calgary,
Alberta, ``to be decommissioned 2021-02-25`` per dxinfocentre.com;
mixing with TKH, see USA.

376-MCW, Feb 17 at 0737 UT, dash and YAG is JBA, 40 watt NDB from Fort
Frances, Ont. 1407 km = 874 stmi or 21.85 miles per watt (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4747 & 4783 approx., Feb 17 at 0241, ratchety spurblobs out
of 4765 R. Progreso, extremely distorted // music, matching plus/minus
18 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6180, Feb 17 at 0245, CRI relay is S9+20/30, but extremely
sup-torted, unreadable. Can`t tell if Brasil is underneath.

5910, Feb 17 at 0322, next CRI relay frequency is the same, implying
same defective transmitter, S9+30/40.

11820, Feb 17 at 0322, second harmonic of 5910 is detectable, S7-S8
but there is so little modulation it seems dead; vs HNL of S6-S7.

Comparing to the RHC Spanish frequencies in next few minutes:
11850, S9+20, suptorted but readable
11670, S9+10/20, slightly distorted
9650, S9+10, less modulation than 11670
9535, S8-S9
6060, S9+30/40, // 5040
5040, S9+20/30
And in English: 9700, S9/+10, // 6000
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13560, JBA S4-S5 blob vs pt 15 pulser; 13631, 13769, 13840
JBA, spurs out of 13700-AM RHC at approx. 69-70 kHz intervals, Feb 17
at 1540. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. At 1653 UT Feb 17 I write to Brad Ferguson, KUCO GM:

``Subject: WCPE all the time --- Hi Brad, Missing KUCO own programming
for third? day now. Wonder if again loss of STL? Staff can`t make it
to studio? Hope everyone`s OK, and can be back to normal soon.
Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` -- He replies:

``Nobody in the studio, Glenn. I hope by Friday there will be enough
clearing of the roads to get in. Also, glad you’re hearing us at all
since we are at 5 kW ERP and have been for more than a week.
Certainly glad we have CPE to fall back on! Brad``

Rated power is 100 kW, which even so is not enough to assure
overcoming KHCC in Kansas; but no signal from there lately, no
subfreezing tropo even if at nominal (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 365-MCW kHz, Feb 17 at 0739 UT, NDB HQG which is 25 watts
from HuGoton, SW corner of Kansas; I was tuned to 362-USB. Rarely
heard tho not that far, 324 km = 201 stmi, or 8.04 miles per watt

344-MCW kHz, Feb 17 at 0740 UT, ND beacon TKH, which is 25 watts from
Tallulah, Louisiana; also heard tuned to 342-USB. Mixing with YC but
not for much longer: see CANADA

329-MCW kHz, Feb 17 0743 UT, NDB PMV, 25 watts at Plattsmouth,
Nebraska, where the Platte River tributaries into the Missouri near
Offutt AFB south of Omaha. See also CANADA [and non] for many more at
same session (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15810, Feb 17 at 1544, JBA carrier where normally is
nothing, equal to the 15825 WWCR JBA carrier; therefore, assume WTWW-3
has been rarely activated.

At 1548 I find WTWW-2 night frequency 5085 definitely on air with rock
music, DJ ID, S9+10 and distorted, but WTWW-1 is not on 5830. So is
15810 // 5085? At first seems so with similar music, but 1552, 5085 is
announcing, 15810 is not.

I soon switch to remotes which should get 15810 better at greater than
1-megameter skip distance, but nothing at first to Maine or Holland.
No sporadic-E over N America today.

At 1622 here, 15810 still JBA carrier; but at 1637, UTwente pulls JBA
jazz at 15810.001 and 1638 definite ID at S6-S8, ad something about
health; is 5085 off now? At 1644 Ted is explaining that 15810 is on at
full power and something about a 5085 problem? At 1655 I try KiwiSDR
in Maine, getting 15810 at only S3-S4, better to UTwente at S7 to S8.
Maine gets JBA carrier S3 on 5085. At 1700 an anti-commercial by Ted
about eight wifi ``radios`` they have which will soon be dead. ``Never
buy a Grace(???) product for the rest of your life!`` Not sure of the
brand, but some other one has been widely publicized about to crash
with no further software updates. Which one is that?

I leave 15810 UTwente on in the background but soon after 1700 it`s
nothing but noise --- off or fadeout? At 1644 UT I had notified the
WOR iog about 15810, but no other reports of it received in the next
sesquihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6200, circa 0100 UT Feb 17, routine check for ROCV via
Bonaire SDR finds no signal. At 0618 Feb 17, Manuel Méndez, Lugo,
Spain, reports to the WOR iog:

``VENEZUELA, 6200, 50 watts, Radio Onda Corta Venezuela, ROCV, El
Tigre. Actually out of the air as reported in the whattsapp group
"Banda Corta Venezuela" Gregorio Kina, technical engineer of the
station, due transmitter fault. Gregorio hopes to repair it next
week`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 5040, Feb 16 at 0012, again tonight, S9+10/20 of dead air
from RHC during English hour; still open carrier at 0030, 0040 and
0234 chex. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Not tried again until 0608 when manages to modulate the other English
hour, but combating high local line noise level. Yet now all the other
transmitters are on and strong in well-modulated English! 6000, 6060,
6100, 9700. Something`s not wrong at RHC. But topic is about murder in
Canada (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Feb 16 at 1500, RHC is JBA but music barely // 13740
which promptly disappears, and still on // 11760. No spurs audible. By
1601, 13700 itself achieves S9/+10 before it stops mod and also goes
off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350-MCW kHz, Feb 16 at 1913 UT, ND beacon RG at Will
RoGers World Airport, OKC, is back! After missing a week; and the
subzero and snowpiles are not over yet. The other two, 341 EI in EnId,
and 255 SW in StillWater, are still AWOL.

[non]. 341-MCW kHz, Feb 16 at 1915 UT, however has a JBA mixture,
probably the peripheral ones, OIN Oberlin KS and DNI DeNIson TX, but I
can`t unravel the IDs to be sure (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1050 kHz, Feb 16 at 1916 UT, partial non-ID mentions 99.1
and NewsChannel 8, weather for Tulsa. It`s 1 kW ND, KGTO; the 99.1 is
of course a mere translator, K256CR, per NRC AM Log. KGTO has an edge
over the other Okie to here, KXCA Lawton, with one quarter the power
and 19% further. Log says both are sloganned ``Heart & Soul``, non-ID
not heard at this moment (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640 kHz, Feb 16 at 1459 UT, KZLS ``Enid`` is off the
air. Transmitter site is east of Hennessey, where I hear there are
power outages, so maybe that`s it. Am pretty sure 1640 was still
running at bedtime bandscan circa 0700. It`s back on at 1708 UT check,
also when OG&E System Watch does not show any significant outage
around there, altho 908 customers are powerless in Enid:
https://www.oge.com/wps/portal/oge/outages/systemwatch/
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Feb 15 & 16 at 1558 UT, KUCO-FM lacks `StarDate` as
sked we always try to catch, instead stays plugged in to WCPE The
Classical Station in NC, which is normally relayed only overnight
05-12 UT. Automated local ID still manages to fire around 1600 after
JBA LF cuetone. KUCO must be unable to operate normally, perhaps due
to again losing STL during horrible freezeweather. Ditto for other
StarDate time, 0058 UT. No explanation on KUCO-FM website still
displaying normal program schedule (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2073 monitoring: confirmed Monday
February 15 from 1900:32 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria, S9+25/30 into
UTwente SDR, but as usual inevitable very heavy splash from both
sides, 7280 Vietnam and 7295 East Turkistan. 7290 already on at
tune-in 1858.6; modulation cut on just before 1900 with a few words of
WOR! but then abbr`d s/on, FSN headlines squeezed in before WOR
restart. By 1925 recheck, has faded down and the splash is even worse
by comparison. Not chopped off at 1929 finish but a few seconds of
silence before music. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 15555-USB, Feb 16 at 1948, rabid gospel huxter at S8, as
WJHR Milton FL inbooms rather than absencing. Checking DX Map for
sporadic E, finally at 2123, I see a 36 MHz MUF about halfway between
along the ARK/LA border. Originally compared to 19m neighbors at 1950:
15825 WWCR JBA S4-S5; 15770 WRMISMTV S9+30; 15730 VOAGB S9+25; and
15610 WEWN S5-S7 but with long-path echo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1220, WCPH, Etowah TN, eQSL received UT Feb 16 for Jan 2 DX
test:
https://www.w4uvh.net/WCPH_1220_DX_20210102_GlennHauser_QSL.pdf

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1280, Feb 16 at 1553 UT, cursory bandscan finds a hole here,
semi-local KSOK Arkansas City KS missing, presumably due to frigid
weather and/or power outage; back on with music at 1735 check. see
also OKLAHOMA: 1640 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 15 at 0237, RHC is S9+10 of dead air when checked
on Bonaire SDR, while 5025 Rebelde is VG OK. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9535, UT Mon Feb 15 at 0239, of all the RHC Spanish
frequencies known at this hour on 13, 11, 9, 6 and 5 MHz, this is the
best and yet very poor S5-S6 into Bonaire SDR. I`m checking for `En
Contacto` DX program, since it was missing from first airtime Sunday
morning. I switch to En Vivo webcast at http://www.radiohc.cu which is
attached to a 24-hour program schedule you won`t find anywhere else,
claiming E.C. is at 9:35 pm EST Sundays --- but it does not really
start until 0240 UT Monday! At least it exist.

Not a hint of any Profesor Arnaldo Coro Antich; instead unID OM
announcer goes lickety-split in Spanish but 100% comprehensible with
excellent enunciation unlike Arnie. But annoyingly and insultingly,
two main topix are boilerplate about how satellite communications
work; and boilerplate about HF propagation --- each broken up into
alternating brief segments, as if listeners` attention spans cannot
handle any more than a couple minutes of each at a time. Also some ham
special events, and a brief bit about what SSB is, resorting to
English-language abbreviations. At closing, locutor name ID sounds
like Marvin Hueso? Same writer credit as last week but adding an
uncopied matronymic last-last name. Theme music fill out for 15
minutes ending at 0255, then `En Cía del Dr`, which in the mornings is
supposed to get 10 minutes at 1450; so did it run until 0305 tonight?
Unknown. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Looking thru the attached webcast schedule, with lots of duplicates,
http://www.radiohc.cu/audio_en_tiempo_real
it breaks away from Spanish for only two English hours, at 20 UT, as
on SW 15140; and at 11 UT when I unthink it be on any SW frequency.
Also Esperanto Sunday at 1600 only; the daily afternoon lingo lineup
of Arabic and Creole before English, French and Portuguese after. I
suspect this arrangement be what also go into the several RHC FM
frequencies on the island (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13564 S4-S6, 13632 S5-S6, 13768 S8-S9, 13836 S6-S7,
13904-trace, all approx., Feb 15 at 1533, extremely distorted FMish
spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM transmitter at ~68 kHz intervals; vs
high local line noise level. The FM mode confronts it better than when
tuned in AM, and the S-readings are while in FM. Original is somewhat
undermodulated and so are the spurs. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350, 341, 255 kHz, NDBs are still AWOL as of Feb 15, and
unlikely to be repaired until record low temps abate --- in Enid minus
6 F so far and lucky to break zero as high today and tomorrow.
Wind chill around minus 20 at noon in Enid. Next low to be minus 12 F.
Fortunately no power outages here yet, tho the gas company warns of
possible shortage, that being our main heating method. We have a few
inches of new snow on the ground, and after a Monday pause, another
snowstorm is forecast. We are well-stocked and staying in for the
duration (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9980, Feb 15 at 1546 very quick check, TOMBS
on WWCR is now running only 13 seconds behind 9955 WRMI; why? But 9980
only has another gospel huxter voice in the background, self-QRM,
unseems also BS. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 341-MCW kHz, Feb 14 at 1442 UT, ND beacon OIN, 25 watts from
Oberlin KS, mixing with something else ending in I, but cannot
perceive it as local EI Enid, which had been AWOL since Feb 9. I try
again at midday 1805 when there should be groundwave only; still a
mix, one ending in -I and seems three letters. Checking
dxinfocenter.com, I see DNI in Sherman-DeNIson, TX, just across the
River Red and which has been heard rarely before; the next closest one
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2073 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
February 14 from 2300:24 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.93, S7-S9; following
IS & ID loop from tune-in 2257; no sign-on but 2300:06 bit of music
fill.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 15 at 0058, just in time the 0030 on
WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 15 at 0230 on WRMIs: 5800 VG
S9+10/15 into Bonaire SDR, with some local? noise but not jamming; and
7780 good S9+15 into UTwente SDR; also WRN web/satcast. Next:

1901 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 1030 kHz, Feb 15 at 1525 UT, at tune-in handy immediate ID
as ``1030 AM KCWJ`` and country music; has SAH of almost 2 Hz,
116/minute. KCWJ is at edge of groundwave but maybe also skywave
boost, from Blue Springs (Independence) MO; next closest 1030 is KBUF
Holcomb (Garden City) KS; and don`t forget the one in NW AR: altho one
wonders if far KCTA Corpus Christi TX or KTWO Casper WY could also be
in the mix since they are 50 kW. FWIW, mwoffsets shows:

1030 1029,9965 KBUF (Holcomb, KS) [-1030.0003] 2020-11-24
1030 1029,9978 KFAY (Farmington, AR) 2018-12-07
1030 1029,9995 KCWJ (Blue Springs, MO) 2018-01-23
1030 1030,0000 KTWO (Casper, WY) 2021-01-20
1030 1030,0025 KCTA (Corpus Christi, TX) [-1030.0041] 2020-12-30

e.g., i.e., KCWJ and KBUF 3 Hz apart, tho measured two years apart.
But KCWJ and KFAY were only 1.7 Hz apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, Feb 15 at 1542, JBA carrier, so WWCR-1 is back on air
after outage awaiting some replacement part. Into Maine SDR it`s
S9+15/30 --- and still squealing! So fixing that had nothing to do
with the latest problem. How can anyone stand to listen to it? Doesn`t
matter, as long as gospel huxters and/or far-right extremists be
willing to buy the time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 14 at 0703, RHC still on here in Spanish plugging
Dia Mundial de la Radio, a Big Deal at RHC, despite 06-07 hour
supposed to be in English; was it? By now, 6000, 6060 and 9700 are
off, while 6100 runs open carrier, and still S9+20 at 0712.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Sunday Feb 14 at 1446, no DX program `En Contacto`
with or without Arnie, but discussion of Venezuelan/Cuban contact in
cooperation about Covid-19 as 14 de febrero is some kind of special
day celebrating that. 13700 is JBA while // 13740 is *much* stronger;
after 1500, 13700 has bettered while 13740 is off. No spurs detected.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4020-USB, Feb 14 at 0023, talkative pirate DJ
inviting requests, mentions a YT video, next song to be `Never Say
Never` on Radio Free What-ever. Numerous other logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,78025.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 395-MCW kHz, Feb 14 at 1438, the two 25-watt Kansans are
mixing, CA at Newton - Harvs, and ULS at Ulysses, slightly different
pitches (Glenn Hauser, oK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2073 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
February 13 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+25 via KB0FX remote in MO,
opposite direxion from beam; slight jamming audible at fades and
gradually increasing by 2300 but no big problem. Preceding 2230: Bob
Zanotti ID, and Bob Biermann starts to say ``Remembering the 60`s``
--- about music rather than me.

Also confirmed Sat Feb 13 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VG into Maine SDR,
S9+10/20. But I`m mainly listening to `Encore` on 7570.

Also confirmed UT Sun Feb 14 at 0422, on WA0RCR, 1860-AM S9+15 into
nearby KB0FX SDR, well in progress, probably starting before 0415.

** CUBA. 6060, Feb 13 at 0546, this RHC is back on but Spanish instead
of English, SS also on // 6100, 5040; while English is only on 6000 //
9700. Maybe English got more after 0600? retiring ``early`` tonight.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13700, Feb 13 at 1548, RHC is incredibly JBA with a
SAH no doubt Brother Scare Bulgaria. Tuning down the band, figured
13700 would be off since there were no spurs. Meanwhile, // music on
11760 is S9+20 but distorted. Soon mentions this being Dia Mundial de
la Radio as declared by UNESCO. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Recheck at 1557, now the extremely distorted FMish spurblobs with F#
tone are back, as fundamental 13700-AM has charged up to full power:
approx. 13560, 13630, 13770 S8-S9, 13840, 13910-trace, i.e. ~70 kHz
intervals. Something`s always wrong at RHC; 1558 IS and all go off by
1600* uncovering a JBA carrier on 13700, i.e. per Aoki/NDXC,
Kostinbrod, Bulgaria, still BSing supposedly until 1800 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545.06V, Sat Feb 13 at 1557, JBA Bayto Yaikl on
one of two weekly RMI-brokered emissions via FRANCE at 1530-1600 Wed &
Sat. As always, this defective Issoudun transmitter is
cycling/wobbling up and down in frequency, as I try to measure it,
roughly 17545.055 to 17545.065 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2073 monitoring: missed checked Sat
1300 on WRMI 15770; and 2030v on WA0RCR 1860 AM. Did anyone hear them?

** U S A. 15825, Feb 13 at 2142, no signal from WWCR-1, not even the
usual JBA carrier within the normal skip zone at 1 megameter at 15-16
MHz. 6115, also no signal for WWCR-1 on its next frequency from 2200.
Ivo Ivanov also noted no signal earlier today at 0645 on 3215, the
WWCR-1 frequency at 02-12 UT. This is the same transmitter which for
months, yea years, has been squealing, ``I`m sick! Please help me``.
John Jurasek, the VORW, soon noted at 0713, also to the WOR iog:

``It looks like there may be some technical problems - this is now
posted on their website: "WWCR expects to experience problems with
operation on 3.215 MHz for several days. Parts cannot be ordered to
fix the problem quickly, due to a temporary closure with a parts
vendor." All the best, John J. (Florida)``

Looking at the WWCR-1 program schedule, this means that John`s
``VROW`` [sic], one of very few non-gospel huxter shows, will not be
heard as scheduled Saturday at 23-24 on 6115. But why does WWCR
website mention 3215 only without the other two daily #1 frequencies?
