Hauser
** BRAZIL. 4885, Sept 2 at 0645, quarter-hour pips like a timesignal,
Rádio Bandeirantes IDs and promos, which is the network R. Clube do
Pará relays a lot; now no sign of a second carrier from Acre vs this
S9/+10, biggest Brazie on band. By 0900, Bryan Clark, NZ, was hearing
them both competing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 2 at 1504, RHC S9+20 undermodulated with
`Efemérides` segment, wrong frequency instead of vacant 15140; also
nothing on 15230, but // 11760; while on 31m there remains S7-S9 of
dead air on 9710 not yet turned off. Somethings` always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7245, Sept 2 at 0600+, no signal from RNZP which is
supposed to start this frequency now; nor any on 11725, scheduled
until 0559. But Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, was tracking it: ``Radio New
Zealand Pacific on wrong frequencies at 0600 UT, September 2: till
0604 on 13840 instead of 11725 kHz; from 0604 on 11725 instead of
7245 kHz; from 0614 on 7245 RAN 050 kW / 035 deg to All Pacific
English, as scheduled in A-21`` When I check again at 0649, 7245 has
indeed come up. A Thursday so maybe disrupted by maintenance testing
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Sept 2 at 0606 UT, ``Talk Radio 11-70`` ID still
from KFAQ Tulsa, not ``The Blitz 1170 AM`` stupid ballgame talk as
previously publicized to start Aug 23. Brock Whaley, SC forwards an
allaccess.com story that the flip is now scheduled to begin Tuesday
Sept 7, but refers to new format ``all day``, nothing about overnight.
Loss of one of countless `C2CAM` affiliates would hardly be missed,
except perhaps by Tulsans who can`t imagine any out-of-town AM radio
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2102)

** PERU. 4810, Sept 2 at 0642 previous JBA carrier has improved to JBA
music, so a broadcaster, vs CODAR and LSB tuning essential vs STANAG
noise on 4812. Also 0659-0702+ but music continues, no ID. I still
think it`s likely reactivated R. Logos, Chazuta, as does Bryan Clark,
New Zealand, who replies Sept 2 to my yesterday`s report:

``Glenn, I have heard non-stop music on 4810 LSB several times over
the past week. I recorded the frequency on 29 August from 0723 past
0900 UTC and the music sounds like contemporary Christian vocals. The
frequency measured here is 4809.993. I am now replaying my recording
for any other clues and will advise, but my guess would be Radio
Logos.

Earlier today (0859 UTC) I discovered a Latin American station on
4939.973 with good signals, co-channel with the Colombian religious
station. Latter was clear on the Bonaire KiwiSDR with only the barest
trace of the other station showing on the waterfall. Checking an
Argentinean SDR I found the mystery station was at good level. I have
yet to replay my recording but suspect that this is Peruvian Radio San
Antonio, which MWOffsets io Group lists as on 4939.971. Best regards
from Mangawhai, New Zealand - Bryan Clark``

4810, Sept 3 at 0105, via Bonaire SDR a definite carrier, but just a
bit of talk modulation even in LSB tuning, S4 unreadable (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2102)

** U S A. 329-MCW kHz, Sept 2 at 0635 UT, ND beacon PMV, 25 watts from
Plattsmouth NE. Noise level diminished a bit audiblizing it.

326-MCW kHz, Sept 2 at 0636 UT, NDB MA, 400 watts from Midland TX,
also not heard for months. I was tuned to 324-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Sept 2 at 1507, HIFER beacon is JBA with ID K6FRC
repeating, QRMing CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: ``From: Richard

** U S A. 7370-7380, Sept 2 at 0559, sounds like WINB`s hybrid DRM,
but not currently scheduled on any 7 MHz frequency per EiBi and HFCC.
But Aoki shows 07-10 M-F on 7315, i.e. 7310-7320, as in B-season.
Nothing there now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2102)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5808-USB, Sept 2 at 0653, weak 2-way in unID language,
unseems Spanish; far enough away from 5800 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 1 at 1452, another week, another
Wednesday, with no signal from LRA36 into Brasil SDR. Could the
`season` be over? It was last heard Sunday August 8 concluding a
5-day-straight `marathon`, after which they made excuses due to
weather. Will keep checking at least on Wed and Sat around this time
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Sept 1 at 0129, S9 of dead air from RHC, where
something is always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 1 at 0629, RHC English is still on here; normally
turns off by 0600. The rest of The Cuban Five are also running late:
6060 undermodulated with somehum but not a lot of buzz; 6100 VG S9+20;
6165 undermod, all in English, and 5040 in music, Spanish service.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, Sept 1 at 0637, huge S9+20 open carrier. RFI is
scheduled at 0400-0700, but I think this must be CRI relay transmitter
still on air after 0300-0457. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, Sept 1 at 0126, pirate music at S7-S9,
much more than the usual JBA off-frequency carrier from presumed
Nowhere Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 11670, Wed Sept 1 at 2200, the *only* SNR token
English frequency to be heard at Maryland SDR and UTwente. VG except
at UTw bothered by splash from S9+30 11660, CRI French until 2230 via
Kashgar, East Turkistan, land of ChiCom imperialist genocide; 11940
obviously still off the air [but JBA carrier at 2058, presumably
remnant of CRI Bulgarian via Kashgar until 2057], but no signals
either on 17855 or 15520, which I at first assume must be inaudiblized
by degraded propagation, Sept 1 at 2058, but WWV at 2100 says K=0,
SF=84, no storms yet, but moderate to G2 level forecast. So 75% of REE
are off the air? Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed Sept 1 at 2200, VOT VG into UTwente SDR opening
English with news and press review; 2213 COVID PSA; 2214 `Feeling
Supreme` about folk remedies starting with gargling lemon juice for
sore throat, and finishing with something about the ``plodge`` in the
XIV century -- I think he`s trying to say ``plague``. Something`s
always awry at Ankara. 2222 music; 2225 plug the 41 languages
available at trtvotbird.com ? No, that must be
https://www.trtdinle.com/channel/trt-world
where I listen for a few minutes to the conclusion of a discussion
show `Newsmakers`, and then `Nexus` --- obviously a TV soundtrack
without any video --- good accents in even American English unlike the
SW station simultaneously in TurcoEnglish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: Sept 1 unawake as
usual Wed 1030 on WRMI 5850; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed Wed Sept 1 at 2100 on WRMI 7780, and starting about 21
seconds later on WBCQ 7490-: both JBA S7 in storm noise here; at
UTwente, 7780 also JBA S7 with storm noise tho no Blitz around
Holland, none closer than east Spain, north Algeria, and west Black
Sea. Into Maryland SDR, both S7 but not so noisy, WBCQ as always way
low measured in SAM mode, minus 142v Hz = 7489.858. Next, and last:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Thanks this week to Dan in Cincinnati, who says, ``Dear Glenn, I am
writing to thank you again for all of the great information that you
gather and report weekly`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790-, Sept 1 at 0626 check, WBCQ is off with no TOMBS,
clearing frequency for CODAR swoorps. BTW, Aoki still doesn`t list
WBCQ on 4790! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Wed Sept 1 at 2200, WBCQ with `AAAWWW` playback from
last Friday night. I notice the waterfall at Maryland SDR is sort of
spiral during `William Tell Overture` theme, I guess reflecting the
modulation pattern of that piece (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Sept 1 at 0125 check, WRNO New Orleans is still off.
What will all their Hindi proto-Christian listener do after 0315?
Probably until AC restored; no more reports until someone hear it
again, on its token schedule of 0100-0400 UT only. It would have been
less hazardous to transmit from Fort Worth (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 1 at
0138-0148; tipped by 1 kHz het as I tune across 1000 KTOK OKC: 612,
657(2), 684, 729, 738, 747(2), 774(2), 801, 837(2), 855(2), 882, 909,
936(2), 999, 1044, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1098(2), *1107, 1125(2), 1134,
1152, 1215(2), 1296, 1305(2). At this early hour, all of Eurafrica is
still in darkness. Probably mostly Spain and UK on frequencies with
any significant power, altho *1107, momentarily strongest, and 1296
bring to mind Afghanistan, where Kabul sunrise was 0056 UT (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, Sept 1 at 0627, JBA carrier vs constant STANAG
uteblob circa 4812. Possibly R. Logos, Chazuta, Perú, active? Tho Aoki
shows it as the only 4810 station and at 0900-2400 only. WRTH agrees
the only 4810 anywhere, anywhen is that 1 kW station, OAW9A. Nothing
since 2019 or 2020 at http://www.ethnicradio.org which is missionary
HQ in Orange, California. Not reported since late last year when there
was also a lot of activity on disgraced FB:
https://www.facebook.com/Radio-Logos-4810-Mhz-Chazuta-501777529885017
And only generic, undated info but with some still photos at:
https://radiologoschazuta.com/es/
Of course, this 4810 could also be a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11815.032, Aug 31 at 0615, music at S2-S4, presumed R.
Brasil Central typically askew as in Brasil private SWBCs are required
to run significantly off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Aug 31 at 0608, humbuzz atop undermodulated English..
Something`s always wrong at shameless RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157 & 7215, Aug 31 at 0609, wall-of-noise Cuban jamming
which they keep running against nothing on these particular 40m ham
frequencies and no others, why? Nor is there any conceivable
broadcaster attracting jamming anytime on 7215. Unlike previously,
however, there is no jamming against vacant OCB frequencies above
7300; but there is on 9565, where Radio Martí quits at 2400*.
Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Tuesday Aug 1 at 1525, Kashmir Civitas in
Urdu talk but some English words: ``red light area`` and 1527 again
mentions ``red light`` twice. Wonder what that`s about? Also mentioned
``Jammu & Kashmir``. Chopped off at 1529* still talking, no postlude
of IRRS songs in English this week. Programmers don`t seem to
appreciate necessity for accurate timing. Last Tuesday I missed
checking this weekly 1500 broadcast via ROMANIA after having heard it
every week since it started. This week reception via UTwente is much
worse than usual; instead of loud & clear solid, it`s S7-S8 and
``hollow`` sounding. K-index now only 1, but G1 minor storms predicted
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-USB, UT Tue Aug 31 at 0148, only pirate
activity is here, S9/+10 with classical music, believe it or not! 0151
ID as Mix Radio International, more classical. I keep listening in
astonishment, as most pirates avoid classical like the plague. But MRI
after all is ``mixed`` and have broadcast various genres before. Let
us say these are ``popular classics``, war horses of tuneful
recognizability. At 0258 going from ``Deutschland ueber Alles`` to the
VVV opening of Beethoven`s Fifth.

At 0205 I switch from own rx to remote in Maryland which is getting it
equally well at S9/+10; 0206 another ID but music unseems named.
I suspect there be some repetition before it`s all over, but haven`t
kept track of individual pieces. No announcements at all heard in
final hour to sesquihour, abruptly off at end of final piece at
0340*.

Many other reports here starting at 2214 August 30, all classical:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85786.0.html
I am pleased to see positive comments from other listeners, perhaps
encouraging more of this from MRI or others. Some comment on the
wideband audio, but on the KiwiSDR I find plenty of highs, sorely
lacking in bass response if not bass transmission; rather tinny; no
equalizer? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 14322.5-USB, Aug 31 at 1907, JBA ``International Bible Study
Net`` announcing this frequency, later CQs, apparently trouble
rounding up students. Can`t copy the NCS call, never foneticized. I`ll
bet only welcomed are those accepting as a given that it`s the
Undisputed Holy Word of the Christian God; which version? No real
challenging (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 15610, Aug 31 at 1903, no signal from WEWN
English, scheduled to start at *1900; nor yesterday, I think, nor
night frequency 9385. Now neighbor 15825 WWCR at similar megameter
distance achieves S8-S9, and 15770 WRMI too.

12050, Aug 31 at 1957, at first hear non-Spanish, must be Ndarason in
Kanuri via Woofferton at 19-21, then CCI WEWN Spanish making >1 Hz
SAH; WEWN Spanish night frequency 5970 has been reliable. Some weeks
ago, WEWN tried 12040 instead, but back to 12050 since KSDA is already
on 12040 for one semihour at 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 870, Aug 31 at 0119 UT, WWL New Orleans with storm
coverage vs the Cuban whooper. I think WWL is running lowered power,
as it`s incomparable e.g. to neighbors on 860 & 880. This makes sense
since they must be relying on generator. 10 or even 5 kW should be
enough to cover the disaster area; and who cares about skywave?

Website is certainly current in more ways than one, hosted somewhere
with electrical fluid. I can`t find anything about technical issues,
nor even a list of all the FMs allegedly carrying WWL at least on HD2.
But they do plug ``WWL HD2`` which you can hear online; who cares
about OTA FM? As if it were separately programed, but totally unclear
about that. During the emergency, likely a single stream on all
possible outlets. Not to be confused with Audacity, sounds like
``odyssey``:

https://www.audacy.com/wwl

As for the QubaRM, IIRC, WWL was among many major US MW stations that
the USG took over for VOA Spanish during the 1962 Missile Crisis; so
maybe the Commies have not forgotten certain frequencies worth
jamming, just in case!

Meanwhile press about the NO/LA radio situation, via Artie Bigley:

and Terry L Krueger, Niceville FL panhandle has just reported in GMT:

``870 LOUISIANA WWL New Orleans 0826 8/29/21. Excellent live and local
coverage with Hurricane Ida coverage, but sadly, terrible interference
from co-channel Radio Reloj, Cuba with exceptionally terrible voltage
wobbling noise and -- even more sinful -- WPWT, Colonial Heights, TN
(C&W "96-3 The Possum"), a D1 that constantly runs 10,000 watts
overnights. Recheck pre-sunrise on 8/30, WWL is much weaker. Still
audible daytime though poor in local noise. The only other New
Orleans-proper licensed station audible is 1280 kc/s WODT, which on
8/29 was blindly running Black Information Network feed, but on 8/30
at least was airing local coverage under the BIN branding. KLEB Golden
Meadow 1600 kc/s (in the bullseye of Hurricane Irma) was noted
pre-sunrise 8/29 but with the usual Blues/Cajun music. So far, I
haven't traced their signal since but inconclusive`` (Glenn Hauser,

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Aug 30 at 1447, no signal from CHR Trenton
Military VOLMET; nor on numerous other random daytime chex, tho still
active on 6754-USB night channel. Propagation has been pitiful, but
now I *am* getting 14670-RCUSB, CHU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Aug 30 at 1445, S6/S9 dead air from RHC; meanwhile,
modulating to various degrees on 15230, 15140, 11760, 9710, 9535, and
by 1450 also resumed on 13700. Meanwhile, no spurblobs out of that
now, nor for quite a while, last caught on July 8 at +/- 62 kHz, etc.;
surely they will eventually erupt again. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CZECHIA [non]. 15770, Sunday August 29 at 2135, very nice classical
music on harp -- could this WRMI be an Encore encore? S9+20 better
than usual here off the side. No, it`s R. Prague in French. Seems both
the English and French services play classical on Sundays, this one
concluding with giveaway `Moldau` at 2157 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290, Mon Aug 30 at 1745, I`m checking whether IRRS
still be on air from 1800, as it was missing on Sat Aug 28 when WOR
should have aired. Via UTwente, at first I hear Russian, which is Iran
scheduled until 1750. Also the constant RTTY warble on plus side only.
1748 another carrier on? Iran soon disappears but no formal closing
heard; uncovers even weaker CNR China. *1755 stronger OC with hum,
S9+25 in Synch mode, presumed BULGARIA; a few seconds before 1800, no
Aïda theme at all but quick IRRS sign-on with phone number, falsely
claiming to be in reduced-carrier USB; and right into a gospel huxter
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Aug 30 at 2157, this REE frequency for S America is
still AWOL. The other three continue past 2200 joining for English, VG
17855, 15520, 11670 in decreasing order via Maryland SDR. Justin Coe
does news first about Spain`s de-involvement in Afghanistan; to be
followed by folk musician Eliseo Parra. The music finally starts at
2215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 30 at 2200, VOT English is not off the air today!
VG into Maryland SDR. But I`m listening to Spain until its English be
over at 2230; more than second half of VOT hours are mostly good
Turkish music fill, with interruptions such as the 2-minute
multilingual ID reel --- which could be a learning experience if they
would label each one in English. It`s hard for us to differentiate the
various Turkic languages. 2346 already signing off English with
convoluted English schedule, then IS keeps on and on until 2256 starts
interspersing German IDs. 2259 quick break in transmission probably
when the sleepyrator thinx they are turning it off, but right back on,
2300 timesignal and opening spurious German hour, not with news but
historical talk about Atatürk, who was too secular for Erdogan; and
other features, still on past 2320 with web address, much more music;
2325 another talk, briefly about Olympix, 2327 ID like in English
``VOT with you everywhere``, song starts until finally abrupt chopoff
at 2329*! Something`s always erroneous at Emirler; extra German
probably had more listener in Oklahoma than at 1-1:30 am in Zentral
Europa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Aug 30 at 1444, K6FRC ID over and over from 1.8
milliwatt HIFER beacon in Patterson CA. Check for it almost every day
in bandscan, only heard around this time, and last logged July 30
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2101 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
August 29 at 2000 on IRRS Shortwave via AM Italia, 918 kHz, VG S9+33
into nearby Noale SDR. So this is still funxioning if SW 7290 is not,
Saturdays at 1800. See also ITALY [non].

Missed checking Sunday Aug 29 at 2230 on WRMIs 9955 and new 7780: did
anyone hear them?!

Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 30 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+20/30.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 30 at 0130 on WRN webcast to North America.

Confirmed replaced by something else Mon Aug 30 at 0230 on WRMIs 7780
& 5800.

NOT confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-, UT Mon Aug 30 at 0300, as
that WBCQ is OFF the air. I believe I had noticed it on air an hour or
two before. 4790 is also off now but the other BCQs remain on: 3265,
7490 and 9330. No lightning around Monticello now. WOR is running on
Area 51 webcast, checked 0317 at midpoint. And by 0351, 6160 is back
on with HRI, and 4790 with BS. At 0412, 6160 is still playing A51
music as on webcast. Would have been nice if WOR could have run then
instead. Last week`s WOR on 6160 was also curtailed. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Thanks this week to Dan in Cincinnati, who says, ``Dear Glenn, I am
writing to thank you again for all of the great information that you
gather and report weekly`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. As Hurricane Ida hits New Orleans and knocks out all power,
about time to check whether 7505 WRNO can be on the air from *0100;
it`s anyway erratic without storms. 0120 next check: WRNO is absent,
surprise2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 870, Aug 30 0042-0050+ UT, no signal from WWL New
Orleans. CNN has also just reported that the entire city is without
power - but you`d think this vital station would have backup
generators, contingency plans. A rare chance to DX something else on
870? But 0122 next check: WWL is back on with callers, serenaded by
the Cuban whooper. Later ToH legal ID includes a bunch of HD2s on FM
stations; wish I could copy all. So AM 870 is RRRR = really rather
redundant radio? Still WWL 870 is the place for NOLA news in the
aftermath if you can get it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1040, another anomaly at 0040-0044+ UT Aug 30, strongest
signal on 1040 is dead air, looping from the direxion of WHO Des
Moines. 0122 next check: 1040 WHO is remodulating with talk show
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, August 30 at 0531,
early enough that not everything has faded out yet: 621, 711, 747(2),
774-, 846=Kiritimati?, 882, 1107, 1125, 1503(2).

1503 is especially intriguing: WRTH shows two low-power RNE5 Spain of
2 and 5 kW; beyond that, 25 kW inactive Egyptian on the dayside; not
to mention 1 kWs Bosnia and UK. Maybe not too early for 2.5/5 kW
NZers? (2) means at least two carriers beating.

Notable for its absence now and for some months is a carrier on 936
kHz, which would hold up later than most of Europe and was assumed to
be the 200 kW in Agadir, Morocco. I last logged it Jan 24 & 27, and
Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal reported on May 31, ``711 and 936 outlets
off the air``. In MW Circle, Aug 30, John Hoad in Canary Islands,
says, ``more recently Morocco 936 kHz has gone. 73 John, Playa Blanca
Lanzarote``. Jorge Garzón Gutiérrez "IberiaDX", 39698 Santiurde de
Toranzo (ESPAÑA - SPAIN), replies, ``Hi John, I have 936 al-Amazighia
(MRC) last record on May 2021. Did you listen to later than this?
Maybe is not active since then? ¡Gracias!``. Furthermore, I am not
hearing once-reliable Algerians on 531, 891 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6910-USB, Aug 29 at 2330, JBA contact sounds like MARS
or some mily/govt net, NCS503 calling NN6GT, not sure of second call`s
prefix; partially foneticized. Preceded and followed by much louder
beepery, perhaps SSTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
