Hauser
** CANADA. 28175 MCW, Feb 4 at 2150, continuous carrier stands out.
Between long pauses, ID as DE VE3TEN. Missing from WI5V list, but in
this list as of today!
https://listof10mbeacon.blogspot.com/2023/06/worldwide-list-of-10-meter-beacon.html
``28175 VE3TEN - Ottawa ON CAN FN25dj (04 Feb 2024) Note: de ID + grid
+ 75" carrier FSK - Pwr 10w`` Lots of activity on the 10m beacon band.
I wish there were a way to filter out the `domestic` ones and go to
foreign ones without listening to each and every ID (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440v, Feb 4 at 2148, no signal direct from R. Cairo in
English. Something`s always amiss at Abis. 9440v, Feb 5 at 2150, no
signal into UTwente. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** JAPAN. 28430 USB, Feb 5 at 2318, CQDX from 7L4LKK, JBA and took
numerous passes to copy fonetik call. Where in the world is that? Then
working a VA7. QRZ.com: ``7L4LKK Japan flag Japan, MICHIO HASEGAWA,
3-95-2 Tomae Mito-city, Ibaraki 311, Japan. My callsign:

I was born in 1960 and started amateur radio in 1977 when I was a high
school student. My first callsign was JH7XZU. About 30 years ago, I
moved to JA1 area from JA7 area. However, in those days, we run out
of J letter prefix in JA1 area. That is why I was assigned a new type
of prefix 7L4 instead of J letter prefix such as JA1, JH1, JR1.
Therefore my callsign is not a special callsign nor an event
callsign.`` Many photos of equipment, QSL design, scenery:
https://www.qrz.com/db/7L4LKK
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Feb 5 at 2308, token English from SNR, feature
interview about organ donation and transplanting. S9+40/50 direct.
Also VG on 12030 briefly checked, backwards from ME beam (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 6125.018, UT Mon Feb 5 at 0410, VOT English with annoying
squeal, S9+35 into UTwente, which I was also hearing first via
Maryland. Autonotch does nothing. To get rid of it, bandwidth must be
narrowed below 3 kHz which leaves very lofi audio. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler. `Weekly Analysis` is just ending; 0413 song;
0417 ``always-by-your-side`` promo; 0418 song; 0421
``with-you-every-hour`` promo, and `Letterbox`, which is why I tuned
in, to reconfirm on final repeat of Sunday show. Informally referring
to letters/reports from: India, Germany, Italy, Australia, Italy,
Belgium; Alan Holder on Isle of Wight UK, only name we recognize,
longtime listener glad to have L`Box back; India, Lithuania. Along the
way offered only P-QSLs, no have calendars or any other goodies to
send like they used to. During COVID worked from home and didn`t get
it. Back next week and ``Goodbye, my lovely listeners, I love all of
you``. It`s the regular OM announcer whose name per Alan is Halil
Ibrahim Sarikaya, until 0438. Has considerable accent but not impeding
comprehension like the YL badax, Efsun Duri Elgeler. Last week this
show ran from 0417 to 0429, so the span is now expanded to 0417/0438v,
likewise on all the other English transmissions, i.e. those starting
on half-hour, :47/:08. DX/SWL/Media Programs amended. The / indicates
start/stop range rather than specific times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.018, Feb 5 at 2313, VOT English in music,
JBA direct vs noise. 2331 into UTwente when measured, same offset as
earlier above 6125, same squeal and no doubt same transmitter at
Emirler where something`s always erroneous, S9+35/45. 2350
multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2352 s/off for the 1330 airing only;
2352.6 IS starts; before 2356 restart IS with German IDs; cut off
2359.3* before extraneous German can start and uncovering as always
the 5960.000 CCCCCCI from EAST TURKISTAN, std. genocidal denunciations
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 35790, Feb 4 at 2155, JBA carrier suspected to be 3 x 11930
R. Martí. Lots of stronger carriers around, presumed birdies. I
haven`t watcheard it yet, but I bet this tour of Grimesland makes no
mention of its harmonix, heard again Feb 5 about 2310:
https://qrper.com/2024/02/proper-qro-k4rlc-tours-the-edward-r-murrow-transmitting-station/
as found by Harald Kuhl in the BDXC-UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday February 4 at 2100 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+18 into
nearby Noale SDR; S9+5 into UTwente, no QRM at either.

Also confirmed Sunday February 4 at 2255 the 2230 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975, VP S7 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9+10 but
noisy into Georgia SDR; S9/+5 into Durango2.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 5 from 0401.5 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.932, JBA S4/S5 into Maryland SDR but L&C on webcast; JL gotta go
by 0400 but intervally various noises, jingles and IDs before WOR.

ZZZ, not checked Mon Feb 5 at 0930 on SW Radio, Germany, 6160. Anyone
hear it?

Confirmed Monday February 5 at 2039 the 2030 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975, S8/S9+5 into UTwente. Next:

week to Michael Beu, Austin TX for a contribution via PayPal in US
funds but not necessarily, to: woradio at yahoo.com and says, ``Glenn,
your efforts are much appreciated! Thanks again for WOR - a valuable
resource.``

One may also contribute by money order or check on a US bank to:
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. WTF,K? RU, ND beacon, Feb 6 at 0735 as I was almost
asleep, did not note the frequency. Listed are 272 kHz in TX, more
likely than 275 in NC. This to remind me to check again (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. ``Hi Glenn! Just a quick note about your NDB report on
382 kHz. SP is located in Springfield, IL, not Greenland. The call
sign of the Greenland NDB is SF. Besides YPL and SF, the only NDBs on
382 kHz with sidebands around 400 Hz from the carrier frequency are BT
in Burlington, VT and YE in Fort Nelson, BC. YE was scheduled for
decommissioning last August but was reported still transmitting on
February 1, 2024. IRS in Sturgis, MI gets out very well but its
sidebands are around 1000 Hz from the carrier frequency. Steve Howe,
Saint Albans, VT`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

THE TINY TRAP

JAMAICA, a ``tiny Caribbean island``, asserts Seth Doane in a story
about Bob Marley -- and was axually *in* Jamaica. Maybe you can get
this to play:
https://www.cbsnews.com/video/kingsley-ben-adir-takes-on-bob-marley-in-the-musical-biopic-one-love/
Among Caribisles it`s the third *largest* after Cuba, Hispaniola.
There are far too many truly tiny islands to compare it with, but
among nations, how about Monaco? More than 5,769 Monacos could fit
into Jamaica.

ICELAND, a ``tiny nation``, says Bill Weir in CNN`s `The Whole Story
-- What Whales Tell Us`, an otherwise excellent program -- in this
case maybe let it pass if ``nation`` refer to population of 378,000
rather than area. But where would be the barrier between tiny and
not-tiny; should pop. density be considered?

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS update:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ANTARCTICA. 15476 RCUSB, continued from last report, LRA36, sudden
chopoff at 0121* UT Sun Feb 4 into Argentine SDR, and no return. Some
others were trying to pinpoint the JBA reduced carrier, but led to
different spots below 15476. Maybe it vary (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 4 at 0415 check, R. Rebelde is off again. 4765, R.
Progreso is still on, nominal 0500* tho some reports of running past
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Sun Feb 4 at 1557, S9+15/25 of dead air, no signal on
15140. 1559 Spanish ID, IS and 1600 weekly Esperanto service theme and
opening. They continue to impose Spanish stress on some words instead
of invariable penultimate; I add accents to render mispronunciations
as heard: Amériko, polítiko. Schedule announced as Sun 0800 on 6100
which has been gone for ages; 1600 on 11760 only; and the third time I
always have trouble copying on 15730, but perhaps 2230 as in WRTH
2024; however the ``winter`` sked on page 633 misshows ``summer``
timings 0700 & 1500! I.e. from the start of DST March 10 which is
still winter, not even spring! As the running dog of Yanqui
Imperialism matches USA nonsense. The third broadcast has been
reported at various afternoon times and frequencies, even Monday.
Somethings always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935 AM, Feb 4 at 0427, OPOB, JBA music in HNL =
high noise level. These say it`s B Side Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,125066.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.9, Feb 4 at 1555, JBA carrier on signature
off-frequency of pirate Hikari FM in Arizona or Sonora (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 11670, Feb 4 at 1556, open carrier on bigsig, 1557
Chinese talk and music, i.e. CNR1 jammer getting a headstart on VOA
Tibetan at 16-17 via Philippines, also with a tone mixed in (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 379 MCW kHz, Feb 4 at 0805 UT, DL, 50-watt NDB at DuLuth MN
is JBA. Last logged Nov 26, 2021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also

** U S A [and non]. Updated full WOR schedule:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

WORLD OF RADIO 2228 confirmed UT Sunday February 4 at 0100 on WRMI
9955, VP S7 altho aimed into Argentine SDR which had been on LRA36.

Also confirmed UT Sunday February 4 at 0430 just started the 0415v on
WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, unusually JBA direct vs storm and other noise,
ending at 0457 much better into nearby SDR so started circa 0428.

ZZZ, missed checking Sun Feb 4 at 1130 on WRMI 9955; anyone hear it?

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 4 at 0415 check, WTWW-2 is still on with preacher.
But 7505 WRNO is off, silent Hindi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, Sun Feb 4 at 0433, JBA carrier presumed WMLK as
nothing else listed, 04-09 except UT Sat/bbathdays, foolish bc for
Europe on much too high night-path band; is it irregular like 9275
afternoons? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 382 MCW kHz, Feb 4 at 0806, almost continuous beepery,
must be at least two NDBs mixing. Usual occupant is YPL in Ont; a few
in US like two in IL, but more intriguing would be Greenland, México,
Trinidad and Réunion listed at dxinfocentre.com However, RNA shows no
Réunion; México and Trinidad not logged for years. Pitch of SP
Greenland & YPL are about the same ~400 Hz, while most of the others
are slightly above 1000 Hz, and if I were getting a mixture, they were
about the same pitch (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 4 at 0411 into
internal shortwire antenna: 621, 711, 882?, 891, 1053, 1089-2 slow
beat, 1503 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15476 RCUSB, Sat Feb 3 at *2300 as publicized 23 hours
earlier, LRA36 back with another broadcast, JBA S5/S6 = local noise
level direct, but S9/+10 into Argentine SDR - soon all four rx are
tuned to this and I get one of them. 2308 about history of base. 2310
the `Antártida` song we haven`t heard for a while; 2314 ``en vivo``,
``haciendo soberanía`` and then long interview about scientific
research, military involvement. Staking out Arg. ``sovereignty`` over
Antarctica is the real reason for all this, contrary to
``international continent`` treaties. 0010 Feb 4 still going asserting
it`s the first program of 2024. Wonder if this will be regular time
instead of 18-24+ UT Sats. Again I do detect the JBA reduced carrier
by USB stepping-down tuning, as someone else was doing before I
inherited the rx. Also wonder if the eventual new 10 kW will too. 0013
chops off air during music. 0015.5 comes back during music after a
false start; 0016 another ``haciendo soberanía`` ID, more gab. At 0019
I compare the pitch of the RC when tuned to 15475.50 USB vs 15476.50
LSB - and it is lower on the upper side, indicating the RC is slightly
above 15476 instead of below; and taking into account a slight
correxion factor when tuned to 15000.000 WWV. 0028 they say the new 10
kW transmitter will be solid-state and will build a different antenna
to replace the rhombic (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 3 at 0732, Fox movie fanfare of all things,
presumably R. Rebelde programming, into distorted music, S9+20.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5980, Sat Feb 3 at 0728, jamming vs WWCR leapfrog
mixing product of 5890 over 5935 another 45 kHz higher, which is S9
stronger than usual. At least Cuba tries to block it, hi,
inadvertently since the jamming is leftover originally against
long-abandoned R. Martí frequency. The mix overnight possible only on
weekends when 5890 be active. On inside randomwire due to T-storms
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 15140 & 11760, Feb 3 at 1637, both absent, the only two
midday frequencies. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Both also off
during English hour at 2015 check of Maryland SDR, but RFI Hausa from
FRANCE well occupies 11760 at 2000-2030 only. Bits of English into
translation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: noted in my logs even if not directly
related to radio. UT Saturday February 3 at 0525, my chair shakes
briefly. Altho there is a thunderstorm too, this timing does not
correlate with any thunder, which would not shake the ground like this
either. USGS report:

Magnitude ``5.1 - 8 km NW of Prague, Oklahoma, 35.534°N 96.764°W,
2024-02-03 05:24:28 (UTC) depth: 3.0 km``

https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/ok2024cish/map?dyfi-responses-10km=true&shakemap-intensity=false
At least 8 further quakes in OK were recorded in the next few hours,
max. 3.5 and unfelt here; and many more of lesser magnitude.

https://kfor.com/news/local/occ-some-wastewater-wells-near-prague-will-close-after-earthquake/
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003, Feb 2 at 2300, VOT almost accurate
timesignal, JB audible direct vs local noise level. Soon over to
UTwente where measured, much better S9+30/40 well above noise level
there, English news, songs, etc. 2331 `Always-by-your-side` promo,
more music. 2336 `With-you-every hour` promo, more music. 2341
`a-b-y-s` again, more music. 2346 `w-y-e-h` again -- TG for these
crutches!, more music. 2350 multi-lingual ID filler reel covers
another biminute of wasted airtime. 2352 s/off for 1330 broadcast
only, IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs. 2358 cut off uncovering the
already audible CCCCCCI, i.e. Xinjiang RTV from East Turkistan, land
of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems; vs
Turkey`s denied genocide of Armenians a century ago (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday February 3 at 0130 on WRMI 5850; into the NH SDR I had
running for WBCQ, 5850 bothered by some noise, not jamming; S9+30
direct OK except for nearby lightning crashes.

Missed checking Sat Feb 3 at 1530 on SWR Germany 6160; anyone hear
it?

Also confirmed Saturday February 3 at 1700 on WRN N America webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday February 3 at 1830 on SW Radio, Germany, 3975,

Frontline Jan 30, 2024 --- Democracy On Trial #4209 --- OETA WORLD ---
The roots of the criminal cases against former President Trump

mind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 3 at 0517.4*, WTWW-2 cuts off the air just as I
tune in. Had been running in background since cut on just before 0000,
and no outages noticed but could have been some. George says they have
a new heat exchanger so should be more reliable from now on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1240.19 approx., Feb 3 at 0745 UT, standout het.
MWoffset shows nothing so far off in US or elsewhere in WHemisphere.
On inside randomwire due to T-storms. Likely KCRT Trinidad CO, long
askew. Last logged on 1240.23 approx., Sept 6, 2023 at 0345. But

** ANTARCTICA. 15476 RC USB, Feb 2 at 2308, another test as publicized
from LRA36 - direct reception the best here in a long time, well above
local noise level of S3/S5 so quite readable, S5/S7 with music, RAE
multilingual ID, then 2309 RNASG ID. At 2325 I switch to favorite
Argentine remote where it`s S9/+10, mostly music. With that strength I
can barely perceive there still be a reduced carrier, as in USB I tune
downward, but can`t really pinpoint it to .98 as before. 2359 ``somos
un nuevo sonido para su radio``; pause and seeming live announcement
to listen again tomorrow at 23 UT for the first program of the new
season; was it `Uniendo Voces`? Not sure what he called it; nothing
more. Originally publicized to be two hours long, later only one
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11760, Feb 2 at 1618, RHC unusually weak, S7/S8 as
Spanish modulation cuts out and on. But again with parasitic wobbly
spurs approx. plus/minus 4.4 kHz around 11755.6 and 11764.4; also
multiples even more diffuse about 11768.8, 11773.2. Jammers sound
louder on 11860 & 11930 but obscured by that Grimesland NC station.
15140 is off. The Other Side:

``The regime tramples on the sexual and reproductive rights of women
prisoners -- In the case of Cuban political prisoner Lisdany Rodríguez
Isaac, Havana is once again breaking its own laws and violating
international legal protocols.

Ángeles Rosas Madrid 30 Ene 2024 - 18:33 CET
Lisdany and Lidianis Rodríguez Isacc. Prisoners Defenders/X

The Cuban regime is once again breaking its own laws and violating
international legal protocols that protect sexual and reproductive
rights, in the case of political prisoner Lisdany Rodríguez Isacc,
held in the prison of El Guamajal, in Villa Clara. Seven weeks
pregnant, the young woman is being pressured to undergo an abortion at
the same time she is being deprived of adequate food and medical
care...``

** FRANCE. 7295-7300-7305, Feb 2 at 0730, DRM, S9+35 into Canary SDR.
This time I keep the computer on to ID this as heard last few nights.
No sound but silence, no journaliine, displays as from TDF as I had
suspected. S/N varies 9.1 to 10.4, 8.08 kbps. Must have just come on,
as no signal direct at 0727, but S9+25 of noise audible by 0737. Off
by final check 0802. Apparently secret test, why? at *0730-0800*
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 107.1 KNID, and 95.7 KXLS, Feb 2 at 1930 UT, dead air in
$ tereo, no coincidence as sibling stations. Still such at 1943 past
2000; but remusicking by next check 2017. Enid market but 107.1 CoL
North Enid, 95.7 Lahoma which is west of Enid, both axually on same
tower; so why the pretense? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 99.7, Feb 2 at 1932 UT, ``The New 99-7, The Wolf``, also
plugs ``The Wolf-pack``. Not so new that it`s not already as such in
the WTFDA DB. Latest in a string of call changes is KWFF, country,
47/47 kW from Mustang, SW of OKC. This was originally an independent
Enid station, but soon sold out to Chisholm Trail Broadcasting, and
eventually sucked into OKC area. FCC FM Query shows Call Sign History,
with change dates but not for the latest!:
KNAH 09/30/2013 = HANK tleps sdrawkcab
KZLS 10/16/2008 = now on 1640
KNID 07/24/2000 = now on 107.1
KXLS 03/20/1981 = now on 95.7!
whether or not the last two manage to modulate; whether or not 1640
manage to transmit at all (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Feb 2 at 2300, token English from SNR, feature
previewed is a 4- instead of 5-day work week, currently being
experimented in Portugal pilot project; S9+30/40 direct well above the
local HNL. 2302 ack. Groundhog Day, then the real news. 2307 TGIF
becomes TGIT? But too much competition this hour: Antarctica, Turkey
and SW première of WOR 2228! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, Feb 2 at 2300, VOT not off the air
direct, but too poor vs noise level; 2336 into UTwente where measured,
song, S9+25/35. 2344 `That`s Why` repeat with the badax, something
about the sun being in the middle of the Milky Way, NOT! Something
always awry at Ankara, music. At 2354 s/off for 1330 broadcast only,
IS; 2357 IS has restarted with German IDs; 2402 still German, but
uncovered Chinese by 2404. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO: from Kari Kallio, Finland:
``"Hello Kari
..//.."Thanks for the short report. We love those comments without
asking for any QSLs^^. Thanks also for the audio files from your
location. We have decided to keep Glenn Hausers' WOR permanetly 'on
schedule', within the CQ Serenade show which has the ARNewsline at the
top of the hour. Glenn following at aprox. 30min past the top of the
hour. We had some nice feedback lately..//.. Cheers to Finland, Andy

my RR of WORLD OF RADIO via Winsen on 3975 kHz the 29th Jan. 2024 at
20:30 UTC+. GH, Welcome to Europe on SW!`` Good, altho I have no
intentional connexion with CQ Serenade.

WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: confirmed Friday February 2 at 2130 on
IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S8/S9 but noisy with Spain ACI from 1314
into UTwente; better S9+15 clear into nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed Friday February 2 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, S9+20 exceeding
S9+10 local line noise level, but can`t tell whether also any jamming.

** U S A. 5085, Feb 2 at 0239, WTWW-2 is gone again; as in last
report, I found it active at 0102. So something`s wrong again, not
attaining full nominal span 23-05 UT. Next evening a receiver on 5085
awaiting WTWW, finally cuts on JIP preacher at *2354.5 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Feb 2 at 0757 UT, S9+28 of dead air; 0759 fires ID
as KLEY Wellington-Wichita, Kansas, 104.1 and 1130, into music. Not
ashamed of cheating with 250 watt day power instead of licensed one
watt at night, which is tantamount to nothing. Woe to KWKH et al., JBA
under the open carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7295-7300-7305, Feb 1 at 0725, no signal, DRM or
otherwise, into KFS ND SDR. Some of my regular SDRs in USA are not DRM
capable. Past nights there has been strong DRM there before 0800.
However, by 0732 when I check it direct, DRM noise at S9+35, so *0730?
It seems I am alone interested in this. Others ought to be awake and
able check it out easily. Guess, could be another pop-up test from
France, TDF. Still nothing on it at drmrx.org - BTW, link to schedules
