Hauser
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey WOOB, Sept 4 at 1425: only JBA carriers
on 13160, 11460. K-index at 1500 is 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, Sept 4 at 0444, CRI Cantonese relay is S9+50! but
overmodulated/distorted compensating for dead air the last time I
checked it. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MEXICO. 650, Sept 4 at 1200, Radio 65, XETNT Los Mochis, Sinaloa
starting its morning news show with full ID from Grupo Chávez, fair
signal; and weaker, QRMed 610 XEGS Guasave has just joined in // after
separate music before the hour. Welcoming us to viernes, fin de
semana. But first, some really frantic banda music to wake us up. 1207
down to business with ``avances de información`` = headlines, weather
info, lack of lluvias, 1210 fading out. LSR here was 1206. Good to be
hearing these again.

700, another NW Mexican has not quite faded out by 1200, Spanish
either XEGD Parral, Chihua2 or XEETCH, Etchojoa, Sonora; and signs of
870 XETAR, Guachochi, Chihua2. Need earlier selfarising and/or later
sunrising. Tim Hall`s new IRCA Mexican Log notes that official IFT
info does not include XETNT and XEGD, but were reconfirmed still
active on MW as of last year (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 275-MCW kHz, Sept 4 at 0422 UT, ND beacon GUY, which is
25 watts from Guymon. Strangely enough, believe first time I`ve heard
it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 341-MCW kHz, Sept 4 at 0420 UT, ND beacon EI at
Woodring Airport, Enid is dominant on loop aimed E/W, while OIN,
Oberlin KS is JBA but no EI on the shortwire N/S. An earlier obs not
logged found them about equal and timed so alternating nicely (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 780 kHz, Sept 4 at 1135 UT, strong rock music looping
toward Stillwater, i.e. KSPI 250-watt daytimer; 1138 ``It`s Pete`` and
more music. Checking since Tim Hall`s huge Final Report of his Border
Inn NV/UT DXpedition last October included an unID on 780:

``10/26 1116 - "Strong Enough" by Sheryl Crow (successfully identified
by SoundHound app) on ENE wire. Not sure who this would be; a whiny
90s pop tune doesn't fit KAZM's occasional overnight oldies show. It
might fit on KSPI or possibly WPTN, but neither of those stations
should be on at this hour``

I told him, ``780 unID, seems like I have heard KSPI before 7 am CDT,
tho am rarely awake then -- maybe they are coming on at 11 UT = 6 am
CDT. Will try to check. No, I can`t find any FCC record of psra.``

At FCC AM Query I look thru ancient history cards concerning KSPI.

http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/getimportletter_exh.cgi?import_letter_id=44676

Original CP in August 1946 was for 840, but changed by November to
780. In 1949, a Special Service Authorization to operate from 6 am to
7:30 pm CST --- was denied. In 1950 they tried for dual-frequency
operation, switching to 790 at night with 500 watts direxional, but
that was dismissed. In 1953 applied to move to 1490 unlimited hours,
but later withdrew. On 9-30-69 there was a telegram about a ``PSA`` at
250 watts to protect WBBM. Does that mean pre-sunrise, post-sunset, or
both?? And is that the basis for starting by 6 am now? (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

NEW first airing, UT Friday September 4 at 0130 confirmed on WRMI
5850, VG S9+20/30 and 5010, G S9/+10. Weaker signal but 5010
modulation level sounds slightly higher (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 730 kHz, Sept 4 at 0426 UT, the unmistakable roarer Brother
Scare with almost-constant plugging of his phone number, slightly
above the QRM level. Compared to 7730 WRMI, 730 is running 21 seconds
behind; still at 0458 recheck in more contact info. No ID breaks are
built-in to the Overcomer feed, but 0459 seems to cut away, maybe
local ID but uncopyable. 0500 Fox `News` but can`t be certain same
station.

TOM website has redesigned its Radio Log starting with SW stations in
table format, but it`s never 100% accurate:

https://overcomerministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Radio-Log.pdf

Only 5 AM stations remain at the bottom, no more WCKY but still WWVA;
and two of them are shown for the Sabbath service only, Sat 9-11 am
CDT, including one on 730: KQPN 730 West Memphis AR. But this is
certainly not when I am hearing it. I can`t find a website for itself,
but searching indicates it`s Yahoo Sports Radio, and owned by F. W.
Robberts, i.e. same as WMQM and WWCR! There is streaming link:
https://tunein.com/radio/KQPN-730-s35522/
which confirms at this time it`s not sports at all but 0515 UT with:
Brother Scare! KQPN is U4, 1/1 kW with a non-major lobe thisaway
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1147, 1157, 1173, 1183 kHz, Sept 4 at 0437, heavy IBOC noise
peaks as KSL 1160 SLC and KFAQ 1170 Tulsa fight it out. I daresay
nowhere else among the `clear` channels audible here is there any such
crap remaining (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1370, still no sign of KGNO Dodge City KS. I need a better
excuse to drive all the way to DC to investigate.

Following up: consulting Tim Hall`s Final Report of last October`s
Border Inn NV/UT DXpedition, I see among hundreds of logs including
several on 1370, there is none of KGNO, so I wrote him, ``I was
looking to see whether you got KGNO Dodge City KS, which I suspect of
being secretly off the air.`` Tim replies:

``KGNO was a regular catch at this location until at least 3 or 4
years ago (I don't recall exactly), but I haven't had a trace of them
since, despite the fact that the channel is less crowded after some of
the Mexican stations went off. I also suspect KGNO is off... or maybe
just in extreme disrepair? Same with KLEY-1130, a station whose
travails you have documented in recent years. I think the same can be
said for some of the HPRN stations in Texas/Oklahoma/New Mexico.
[High Plains Radio Network] has been consolidating operations for
several years now, running the same programming on groups of 2 or 3
stations that used to have their own formats and staffs. I've been
especially suspicious of KICA-980 [Clovis NM], which I have never
heard, even on optimal sunset/sunrise dates/times, and even when
KCLV-1240 and KSEL-1450 [Portales NM] have been nightly catches. Also
in last October's recordings, I had no trace of KVOP-1090 [Plainview
TX] at all, and they are usually a bit of a pest on several wires.
HPRN has almost no web presence at this point, just a basic skeleton
of a web site for all of their stations on one page. In contrast to
the general state of HPRN stations, little KTAT-1570 [Frederick OK,
eluding gh] was a nightly catch this year. They didn't put as big a
dent in XERF as little KDDD-800 [Dumas TX] puts in XEROK, but there
were several clear IDs audible in my recordings.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 4 at 1151-1159
UT on the R75 and E-W longwire, so no DFing: 567, 576, 693, 747, 828,
837, 882(2), 1089, 1098, 1107, 1116(2), 1125, 1134, 1161, 1224, 1242,
1278, 1521, 1611 kHz. At this time too much splash from 780 KSPI music
to get 774, but earlier at 1139 on the PL-880 while checking KSPI,
could detect 774 and looping NW = Japan. Enid sunrise today: 1206 UT
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 245-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0610 UT, dash and YZE, ND
beacon 1000 watts at Gore Bay, Ont., and per dxinfocentre.com ``TO BE
DECOMMISSIONED 2020-09-10``; and mixing with FS, 400 watts at Sioux
Falls - Rock SD, anticipating less QRM.

326-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0615 UT, short dash and YQK, 200-watt ND beacon
at Kenora, Ont.; I was tuned to 325-USB

413-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0628 UT, dash and YHD, 250-watt ND beacon at
Dryden, Ont. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 3 from 1345: none higher than:
13020 JBA; 12190 JBA carrier; 11460 S5-S7; 11440 JBAC; 11155 JBAC,
else? 11150; 11120 S3-S4; 11100 JBAC; 10960 JBAC; 10920 S2-S3; 10820
S3-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Sept 3 at 0557 once again no VON (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 20, Sept 3 at 0345 UT a UHF/VHF bandscan prompted by
minor area tropo of levels 3-2-1 between here and OKC, per Bill
Hepburn`s maps does get something: a mostly solid signal on RF 20 into
my still broken antenna, from DTV 42-1 KBZC-LD. A rare glimpse of an
``Enid`` TV station, in Enid! Axually, Enid is only the community of
license, why? while the transmitter site is the NE OKC Antenna Farm
along with all the major TV and many FM stations, just south of the
Kilpatrick Turnpike, per rabbitears.info, 7.2 kW ERP at 328 feet above
ground. Approx. 100 km from Enid. Has 7 channels, all with same PSIP
ID: KBZC-LD. First I survey the content of each channel, then compare
to r-e listings:

42-1, commercials, but is Quest, logo circle-Q in lower right, 0400
reality show Ice Road Truckers
42-2, infomercials, no bug
42-3, BUZZR, bug LR, game shows
42-4, GetTV, bug LR showing part-time
42-5, infomercials, no bug; but at 0400, `Bonanza`, whence??
42-6, infomercials, no bug
42-7, ShopLC - formerly Liquidation Channel
This is one of those DTV America outlets providing a minimum of real
programming, certainly nothing new or informative.

RF 21, at 0358 UT Sept 3, slightly weaker bad signal starts to decode
while a top-of-screen streamer IDs as ch 19, KUOT. Listed as 5
channels of 3ABN stuff, 15 kW ERP from much further, the SE corner of
OKC, near SE 95th and Bryant (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed Sept 2 at 2200, VOT cuts on just in time,
allaying fears of yet another no-show, S9+40 as monitored via UTwente.
Usual features; news, press reviews, `This Day in History`, `Did You
Know That?` between music breaks, COVID-19 PSA, but by 2220, yet again
no `Letterbox`, just more great Turkish music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 365-MCW kHz, Sept 3 at 0624 UT, ND beacon AA, which is 100
watts from Fargo - Harwood ND. I was tuned to 363-USB (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: confirmed Wed Sept
2 from 2100:18.5 on WBCQ 7490.057v, sufficient S7 via Rochester SDR.

Also confirmed UT Thu Sept 3 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA here.

NOT confirmed UT Thu Sept 3 at 0130 on WRMI 5010 & 5850; instead music
continues from RNEI, which is now scheduled at 0100-0200 Thursdays;

WOR has been moved, as I requested, 24 hours later to 0130 UT FRIDAYS
on 5850 and 5010 - which means that will be first SW airing `hot off
the press` minutes after it`s finished produxion, starting with #2050
Sept 4, unless there be some problem holding it up (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. Re my WRMI log under CUBA [non], of 5800 in Spanish after
0300 UT Wednesday Sept 2, assumed to be an expansion of R. República
from UT Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon only, I later check the skedgrid now updated
as of Aug 30, showing that hour really occupied by the Argentine media
program La Rosa de Tokio. WS & WOR remain at 0300-0400 UT Tuesdays,
and also a new repeat of `Encore` on UT Thursdays; the other days
remain blank hiding the existence of Radio República. But should R.R.
wish to expand to 7 dpw we`re all gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Sept 3 at 0553, WRMI is S9+10 of dead air instead of
SMTV; which had returned to normal after a couple days of
double-audio; silence in compensation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13093.6, Sept 3 at 1343, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
one side with very loud ``engine noise``.

10828-USB, Sept 3 at 1350, 2-way in Spanish, both encountered during
CNR1 jammer bandscan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sept 2 at 1450, LRA36 is on this
Wednesday; neglected to check a week ago; via Brazil KiwiSDRs, S5-S7
talk at first, all Spanish about something in 1945y, arbor day and
forestation which is probably not concerning Antarctica; via another
remote only S1-S2 and starting to fade out by 1545; 1554 usual canned
`Corazón Antártico` program ID and song, 1606 still audible but not at
1610, presumed off. Nominal 1400-1600, but Manuel Méndez, Spain says
it opened around 1350; he too could only hear it via Brasil. At one
point I downtuned to 15475.00, reconfirming on USB that there is still
a reduced carrier. Presumably to be repeated circa same hours or later
on Saturday, weather permitting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 2 at 1355-1400: nothing in the
WOOBs of 13, 12, 11, 10 or 9 MHz, tuning past all the usual spots.
K-index at 12 and 15 was 2, SF 70, no storms per WWV. This will
present a problem for frequency-order editors, who have got to have
some kHz to hang it on; even tho this obs of no signals heard is no
less significant than when some are. Well: there was a JBA carrier on
9680 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 2 at 0321, R. Progreso is still OFF; what`s wrong?
Something, always at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Sept 2 at 0330, RHC English is only S5-S8 and JBM,
sounds like Arnie as to be expected for `DXers Unlimited`; while the
only //, 6000 is S8-S9 and also just barely modulated, so listeners
are out of luck until maybe some better frequency after 0500 such as
5040, 6100. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, Sept 2 at 0342, CRI Cantonese relay hour is only S7-S9
maybe due prop disturbance instead of blasting in, yet also open
carrier/dead air. What a waste. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 5800, UT Wed Sept 2 at 0324, WRMI with R. República,
and no jamming audible yet, tho the signal is quite strong even here,
yet aimed SSE toward Cuba. Originally this extension after 9490 France
to 0300-0400 was UT Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon only, so now 7 days? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 7275.057, Sept 2 at 0334, VOT English to us intruding into
our 40m exclusive hamband, only S5-S9, JBA with Turkish music fill,
and markedly off-frequency. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring, next:

** U S A. 9315-9345, Sept 2 at 0340, WLCR in British via WBCQ is
splattering out to this range from S9+30/40 fundamental 9330. Seems to
me this is excessive despite the very strong signal. Wondering if it`s
500 or only 250 kW, as some of the closer targets were so registered,
I check HFCC, which displays imaginary info: Nothing on 9330 between
0100 and 0900, rather 6195 at 0300-0400 in German! Despite WBCQ-6
*never* able to reach any frequency but 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Sept 2 at 0321, WRNO is still OFF; what`s wrong?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. Correxion to last log of JBA 3945 harmonic carriers only,
as Ron Howard points out, not X4 and X3 on 11835 & 7890, but X3 and
X2. There is a X4 on 15780 not detectable here. How about further up
in the closer daytime Pacific? Check 19725, 23670, 27615, 31560, etc.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 2 at
0310-0318 UT: 531, 549, 612(2), 621, 684(2), 711, 756(-)birdie?,
774(2, or beating against a birdie), 828, 837, 855, 891, 1044,
1098(2), *1107(2), 1125(2), 1134; none higher but the QRM splash is
worst above the `clear` channels.

*1107 strongest of the lot so 0319 try for some audio, and detect a
bit of music which is not coming from 1100 or 1110. Big gun on 1107 is
400 kW from Afghanistan, but far more likely are the five Radio 5
synchros from Spain ranging from 10 to 25 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5780, Sept 2 at 0324, JBA carrier, as often detectable
in our evenings. Suspected one of the Euro-pirates, such as Radio
Harmony if it run all-night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 1 at 0612, RHC English is S9+30 but JBM; 6145 is

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Sept 1 at 0610, again zero signal from VON to
begin another month. It`s been so sporadic that we do not yet draw any
conclusions of a permanent QRT. Besides,

11769.894, Sept 1 at 1519, S6 VP signal in African? language, typical
VON offset, vs. RHC 11760 splash out to plus/minus 20 kHz. 1859
recheck, still a JBA carrier. Wolfgang Bueschel agrees:

``11769.894 kHz, Voice of Nigeria from Abuja, requested as Igbo
service. Talk by male presenter. At 1620 UT on Sept 1st. Proper S=9+30
or -46dBm powerful signal into Europe today. [selected SDR options,
span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Sept
1)`` and four days earlier:

``11769.893 kHz, Voice of Nigeria from Abuja, probably in English. At
1804 UT on Aug 28. Sideband splash signal disturbtion of S=9+35 or
-39dBm powerhouse, from adjacent CRI Beijing in Germany, via big bcast
center in Kashgar, western China {East Turkistan}. Noted in Liverpool
England and Netherlands Perseus server-net. [selected SDR options,
span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Aug
28)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 31 at 2200 and still 2220, no signal from VOT
English to us. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.

9830, Sept 1 at 2200, VG S9+40 VOT signal at UTwente as YL yet again
opens this broadcast claiming it is at 1230 on 15450. Now it may well
be necessary to do one English broadcast per day at mid-afternoon, and
play it back for all the subsequent English times. But they should say
so, so at least the sign-ons make sense. Of course, we`re lucky they
are even uttering the correct current season time and frequency for
the original. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2049 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
September 1 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG S9/+20 at UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Tue Sept 1 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG at TWR Bonaire
S9+5/15. I leave it on in the background but notice about 0350 that
music is playing! ME-ish world music fill, so for some reason dumped
out of this new WORtime well before it finished. Rarely does a week go
by without some problem with WOR playbax, so we are fortunate with
redundancies.

Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5850 to NW & 5010 to S NEWs

** VANUATU. 11835 & 7890, Sept 1 at 0614, R. Vanuatu X 4 and X 3 are
both but JBA carriers tonight. Propagation disturbed (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 711.0, Sept 1 at 0616, JBA carrier while no TA`s are
audible, not even 621 altho there is HSNL from OKC area which is being
flooded by up to 8 inches of rain in some suburbs. But it`s strong
enough to get a rough DF separable from 710s, as ENE/WSW, which rules
out Cuba, and probably too clockwise for Morocco either. What
Unitedstatesians are along that axis? Surely not the biggies WOR NY or
KSPN LA; how about KBMB Black Canyon City [Phœnix] AZ? There is no
longer a 710 in Sonora. XEDP in Chihuahua used to be off-minus by an
odd amount but not for a year or two (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
