Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Saturday Sept 3 tune-in at 1439 via
Argentine remote, no signal yet from LRA36. Chops on mid-song at
*1452.4, now with good sufficient signal. 1455 ``Esperanza Audaz``
canned sign-on with staff names, ``Nacional, la radio pública``. 1456
unknown song, 1457 vamp music; 1458 the quadrilingual advisory that
this is going to be in Spanish. They can`t agree what to call it, R.
Arcángel San Gabriel, or Radio San Gabriel. 1459 repeat the s/on with
staff names, then Esperanza/Antártida themesong. 1503 reading a
historical piece about Isla Decepción, mentioning Nathan Palmer, of
Peninsula fame. 1506 song.

1510 ID with ``su compañía``, María Eugenia that this is the 19th
program of the 2022 cycle. Greets a Chilean base, or the Esperanza
manager who has been visiting there. Currently minus 1 C after a low
of minus 8. 1515 phone numbers and all the other platforms for
contact. 1517 music; 1521 ``nos une`` ID. 1521 efemérides = this week
in history first about events in 1897, 1898, 1899, with music
background. 1530 song; 1532 more about Isla Decepción, with an
inactive volcano; Deception is just north of Palmer Peninsula.

1539 long phone interview with a guy, lo-fi distorted, hard to follow
until 1558 wrapup, ``encerramos este programa``, I think they
mentioned date but missed it whether Wed Aug 31 or today Sept 3. 1559
song. 1604 replays the ``s/on`` with staff list, ``la radio hech@ por
mujeres``, another songbit to 1605*. Now I see someone in Hamburg also
on the SDR. At the outset Gary Pence in Dallas, and someone in London,
the one in UK, not Kiritimati, were already on it a few minutes before
me.

Gary tells me: ``Well, at 1452z set off and running and coming in just
a little better than jba but not by much into KiWi SDR SE Half Moon
Bay, CA. I quit listening after 1523z as they were below the noise of
S4 more than they were above that. They barely hit one S unit above
noise floor a couple of times. I wonder if because of their
circumstances their antenna used is acting like a NVIS ant. because it
was quite loud at the LU4AA QTH vs anything stateside, much less
further away? If their intended audience is the home front, well, I
guess that's OK too. Gary``

It`s over 2 kilomiles from Esperanza to Bs As, so too far for NVIS. On
my NGS globe as it seems distancefromto.net lax Esperanza in database.
Even when I specify Antarctica, it leads to some places in southern
Argentina or CHile. Considering it`s under 1 kW, doing pretty well
that far, let alone California (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CONGO. 6115, Sat Sept 3 from circa 0530 until blocked by DRM noise
from FRANCE by *0559.8, NO signal at all, not even JBA carrier from R.
Congo into Canary SDR. Yet Ron Howard was getting it direct, far
beyond Canary on the California coast:

``Sept 3, checked for Radio Congo on 6115, starting at 0515+ UT; about
0525 had an extremely weak carrier; by 0545, the signal was
considerably stronger, but still no audio heard; finally about 0555
heard definite audio with announcers; mostly unusable; a few seconds
before 0600, the DRM started up and completely blocked 6115. So from
0525+ their signal very slowly improved. Assume they are still testing
the new transmitter and running much less than 50 KW at this time? No
QRM from Japan for this time period, but heard later with good signal.
Ron California``

6115 minus 0 to 3 Hz, Sept 3 at 1802. presumed R. Congo JBA into
Canary SDR. Manuel Méndez direct to Spain says it cut off abruptly
when news in French ended today at 1826* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Sept 3 at 0702, RHC English is still on here only. I`m
up way too late, so no idea how long it lasted; presumably had just
restarted English hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At least its
QRM further discourages listening to the TOMBS nonsense on 6160-
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [non]. 5129.974, UT Sat Sept 3 at 0230-0300, `Greek Music
Refuge` on WBCQ R. Angela, nice music with very brief announcements in
between, presumably Zach Liangas giving song titles; S9/+10 and not
too stormnoisy into Maryland SDR; followed by `FTIOM` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 3 at 0707, JBA carrier but stronger than last
night, from R. Kiribati; and again no other 9/kHz carriers detected on
entire MW bandscan. Ron Howard replies:

``Hi Glenn, Radio Kiribati (presumed): For the first time, I checked
846. Thanks for the suggestion! Sept 3, definitely a challenge, but
actually had some audio from time to time (0620-0735 UT). Announcers
and some EZL songs that were rather non-descriptive; 0701-0708,
tentatively the news. The language sounded to me to be Kiribati /
Gilbertese (audio attached [to WOR iog]), but didn't catch a positive
ID. Perhaps someone else can positively confirm the language?
Appreciate any feedback. Ron, California`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Sept 3 at 1852 tune-in via Canary Islands SDR, ORTM is
already in English, S8/9+15 and USB tuning helps avoid lower ACI. I
had been listening to Nigeria, q.v. Manuel Méndez, Spain reconfirmed
the weekly English segment last Saturday. W & M alternate; I can
hardly understand her heavy accent, his a bit better. 1854 something
about a traditional medicine app? Ha. Then about deforestation around
Timbuktu. 1901 about an English-learning competition, a brief clip of
someone speaking it better. 1906 end of English, music and not French.
Marred by occasional uteblaaps and running water. WRTH shows English
at 1855-1910, but obviously variable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Sept 3 at 0658, VON not checked direct
until now when it is absent; might have been on earlier.

7255 minus 67 Hz = 7254.933, Sept 3 at 1802, S8/9+10 into Canary SDR
with news in English. Continuous annoying squeal diminished but not
eliminated in AM Narrow mode. Also lite 7255 CCI from algo. 1810 ID
and Africa news. My burrito with sour cream & chips with plenty salsa
lunch intervenes. 1844 still going, 1851 Africa sport segment as I
remember it`s time for the only English from 5995 Mali, q.v. Back here
at 1907, as expected VON is almost totally buried by China in Turkish
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. APRS tropo map shows Enid on the western edge of lite
enhancement, moreso across Arkansas, Sept 3 at 1520 UT, so I tune the
STB between channels 6 and 36 encountering BAD signals on open
channels: 10, 12, 20, 31, 36; and two decoding:

RF 21, virtual 40-1, KHBS-DT Fort Smith AR, which is really in OK, as
detailed in my last log June 12, q.v.

RF 28, virtual 44-1, only ID as ION, really KTPX Okmulgee - Tulsa mkt

Also finally a BAD on RF 17 in absence of local translator, probably
KTEN Ada, on anything but channel 10; should be recalled: KSEVENTEEN?
All soon fade down and out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2154 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday September 3 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 5130 minus 25.5 Hz
= 5129.9745, S9/+10 into Maryland SDR with some storm crashes.

Also confirmed Sat Sept 3 at 1600 & 1930 on WRN North America webcast.
Don`t you believe at 1930 Sat on 15770 as still shown on WRMI skedgrid
but canceled months ago; tho I wish it were.

Also confirmed Sat Sept 3 from 1935 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentville MO,
VG steady S9+15/16 into nearby Warrenton MO KiwiSDR. Vern edits out my
opening alfabet to minimise the music, and must interrupt every
dekaminute for his own ID, per regs. When I have a clip including some
music he seems to allow it. Next:

0030 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to SW
0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0430]

** VANUATU. 11835, still no signal from RV x 3, Sept 3 at 0658. In
last report I very erroneously headed this VATICAN! anagrammatically
getting no closer than VANIACT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2023 UT September 3

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sept 2 at 1456-1555, NO signal from
LRA36 into Argentine SDR: checking this Friday in case a makeup for
Wednesday failure. Next chance: Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CONGO [and non]. 6115, Sept 2 at 1828, Canary SDR gets no signal
from R. Congo; might not get it well anyway at this early hour, but
Bruce Churchill was hearing it from 1819 to 1827.5* via Adelaide SA
SDR so I just missed it! Other reports have come in that this is a new
50 kW Chinese transmitter tnx to aid from PRChina. For the first time
this date, Manuel Méndez, Spain was also hearing it in morning, 0550
till eclipsed at 0600 by France DRM - which is supposedly in a limited
test period. MM also thinx it`s too weak for full power 50 kW. So I
have not heard it at all yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 2 at 2153, yay! No horrible signal at all
from R. Cairo, English into UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRELAND. 8957 USB, Sept 2 at 0621, VOLMET by YL in English, JBA and
I can never copy any location or ID, but thought I heard ``Bahamas``
mentioned more than once: probably not. Seems live and current with
times given as 0620zulu. Not in order, but includes visibility in km;
ceiling in feet?; temp and dewpoint in Celsius; altimeter e.g. 1015;
winds in knots and degrees, still past 0647. EiBi shows this is
Shannon, 24h (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Sept 2 at 0615, NO signal from VON
direct. Sept 2 at 1655 & 1727, NO signal from VON into Canary SDR, not
even a signature off-frequency carrier detected, just storm crashes
from central Morocco to northern Algeria. Further chex: no VON at
1828, 1841; 1858, S9+20/30 from CRI Turkish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORFOLK ISLAND. ``Hi Nick, Well, September is here so it`s time to
enquire how your plans are going to resume SW broadcasting? Hope
things are going well for you otherwise. Now that Norfolk has achieved
SWBC Radio Country status, I am sure there will be a lot of interest
in what`s next. 73, Glenn`` (to Nick Hacko, NSW, Sept 1)

``Hi Glenn, I am back to Norfolk on 18th. I am still looking for a 1
KW AM transmitter with no luck whatsoever. Had some preliminary
exchange with a firm in Slovenia, they are out of components. The
other manufacturer who advertises 1KW TX admitted they actually never
made one. Also my power bill on Norfolk is $ 1200 per quarter about 4
times more than on Australian mainland. Design for QSL cards has been
sent to printer in Ukraine --- God knows when they will be printed and
shipped. Bottom line: frustrating, but I'll be back on air - hopefully
one day soon. 73 Nick Hacko, VK2DX``

Radio DX, 5045, tested from Norfolk Island with World of Radio
participation until April 28; Nick said he hoped to resume in
September. Not to be confused with the Queensland station continuing
on 5045 (Glenn Hauser, as on WORLD OF RADIO 2154)

** OKLAHOMA. OETA has been screwing up this month, concerning what`s
on OETA-2, the `World` channel. On Sept 1 at 16 UT, something else
replaced Amanpour tho still on sked, and 17 show was wrong too. I
contacted via webform, and receptionist Kristi Wren assured me that
Amanpour would still be at 11 am for weeks/months to come; and it was
back the next day -- including first topic, what the ChiCom are doing
to the Uyghurs. In case you think I shouldn`t denounce:

``REPORT: In China, Possible Crimes Against Humanity Reported by U.N.
China may have committed crimes against humanity in Xinjiang,
according to a long-awaited report from the United Nations. China’s
vast western region of Xinjiang is home to a number of predominantly
Muslim ethnic groups, with the Uyghurs the largest population among
them. The report condemns what journalists and human rights
organizations have reported for years: the arbitrary, discriminatory
and violent detention of a people Beijing sees as a threat. While
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi claims Xinjiang is a “shining
example” of human rights progress, the United Nations says the
“serious human rights violations” there cannot be denied. Beijing has
denounced the report with the claim it is based on disinformation.
Correspondent Anna Coren reports.``

Then Sept 2 at 2100 UT, 13-2 started playing BBC news instead of
scheduled DW, fixed it about a minute later. At 2130, 13-2 started
playing PBS Kidvid same as on 13-1, fixed that to BBC about a minute
later. Maybe they have a new inexperienced crew/person if such
switching be axually handled manually (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Sept 2 at 2200, token English from REE, VG into
UTwente; after news, concluding with horrible COVID figures, 2207.5
Amy Egan feature about two pandas gift/loan from China to Madrid zoo,
which then gave birth Sept 4, 1982. Panda mom will attend to only one
cub if she have two. Humans tried to raise the extra but it died. And
stories of further generations. Since then China has stopped lending
pandas. Amy`s narration in English is *followed* by what was just said
in Spanish interviews, not a bad idea for touching up one`s Spanish.
Spiced with nice Chinese music, and 2218 a panda song in Spanish. 2220
another song about China, in English.

Helena Rigobert (sp?) is the new third person in the English sexion
that Justin Coe credits at 2225 before playing ``Ain`t Misbehavin```
to fill out to 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 2 at 2201, NO signal from VOT English into
UTwente, leaving us no choice but SPAIN. Just the JBA Chinese at + 3
Hz, same at 2230 and 2250 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), circa 0500 on WRMI, UR1 relay of `Ukraine:
Security Issue` as copied later:

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_31_08_22.mp3
For Aug 31, Day 189, including: Pres. Z stresses threat of nuclear
disaster does not diminish. Entire zone around Zap. station must be
demilitarized. Must be completely under control of U state. No info on
when IAEA will be able to enter due to R shelling. Occupiers allow
only one day for visit. Kharkiv shelling is more frequent, of hi-rise
buildings, kindergartens; more than 1000 civilians killed in region,
including 50 children. R forced to retreat in south, bridges
destroyed. S300 anti-aircraft missile systems destroyed, were used to
attack Mykolaiv. Donetsk evacuation continues. No electricity, gas,
water, shortage of medicine. Evac convoys fired upon. People hid under
cars. R exhausted recruiting in some areas. Lost almost 48
kilosoldiers in first semiyear.

For Sept 1 = Day 190:

http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_01_09_22.mp3
including: R violated agreements re IAEA visits to NPP; refused
special passes, shelled the trip. Civilian struxures destroyed. R also
targets Zap. NPP, it had to be turned off. Damaged supply lines.
Demanded R withdraw and turn it into DMZ. (Zap. NPP story occupies
entire first half of this edition). U confidently advancing on
southern front, destroying military depots and command posts of
invaders. R trying to use stolen barges, human shields. Kharkiv
continues to be shelled. Using old weapons, not accurate scattering,
hitting civilians, S-300 missiles, old Soviet models. Sept 1 beginning
of new school year in U. Some students will never see schools, only
virtual. R damaged more than 2400 educational institutions, destroyed
270 more. Only 3 teachers for 7 first grades in some places. Parental
rights denied. Kids sent to Russian schools (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, Sept 2 at 1448, K6FRC ID over and over, JBA vs
stronger CODAR, the HIFER beacon I last logged June 27, q.v. for
details. I bandscan past here every morning, so it`s been more than a
bimonth. Claiming only 1.8 milliwatts, a significant catch whenever,
if true. And never audible at any other daypart; is it not 24/7?? And
neither all the others HIFERs listed 13550-13570 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2154 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBCs, UT Friday September 2 at 0130 on WRMIs, 5850 VG direct; 7730
S9+10/15 into Maryland SDR. This time some percussion intruded between
ID and start of WOR; and my last few words closing overcome by BBB
butting in as usual.

Also confirmed UT Friday September 2 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9+10
into Maryland SDR despite far offbeam if still aiming SW from FL.

Also confirmed Friday September 2 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S9/S5 deep
fades and undermodulated but no jamming.

Also confirmed Friday September 2 from 1815.2, S7/S8 on IRRS SW via AM
Italia, Villa Estense, 1323 kHz but never on 207 or 918 kHz any more
tho I pointed out old 918 had less QRM. Now the CCI in German from
Romania`s 15 kW minority service is almost equal to us and sometimes
overtakes, but my Amerenglish speech is sharper and more readable, at
least to me. This time usually conflicts with my call to lunch, so not
paying close attention nor tuning around.

// 7290 IRRS via BULGARIA presumably came on about *1800.8, but not
separately checked until 1828 on the Canary SDR which I already have
running to chase NIGERIA and CONGO: now it`s S6/S8 with storm crashes.
At 1833 I try UTwente closer to its target, S8/9+5; and also JBA on
14580 = 2 x 7290, but not at Canary. Plays to completion at 1844.

Pre-and post monitoring: 1323 tuned in at 1756 during music; 1800 IRRS
SW s/on and FSN as usual then music fill, 1813 German CCI overrides;
1815 IRRS SW ID and into WOR. 1844 on 7290 ID and music, 1848 old PSA
about driving accidents, don`t speed! 1849 opening `Country Jamboree`
but immediately into sub?title, `Country Style USA`, by transcription
from the US Army, DJ Hawkshaw Hawkins, I had never heard of but a
character to look up on Wikipedia: died in plane not auto crash in
1963*; 1855 US Army recruiting promo promising all kinds of benefits
except KIA. *1857 heavy ACI splash from S9+15/20, 7295, CRI English
has just come on, and IRRS cuts off within seconds, as if coördinated
but its usual time regardless of programming in progress. Back to
1323: milicountry music continues a bit; before 1900, IRRS ID mixed
with few seconds of tone from Romania before it turns off. Leaving
1323 relative clear for us an hour too late.

WOR 2154 also confirmed Friday September 2 at 2057 the 2030 on IRRS SW
via AM Italia, 1323, S9+20/25 into Vinci SDR which is getting it as
well or better than nearer Noale which has timed out. 2059 bit of
music, IRRS ID and Feature Story News, not closing down yet, but quite
a fade-down at 2103. Only lite CCI from algo now, but storm crashes:
little lightnings along Italy`s northern border; bigger storms in
eastern France and off south coast in Mediterranean. Next:

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 2 at 1446, WBCQ/WLCR absent again: getting to be
habitual; not even trying for 24h? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8960 AM, Sept 2 at 0630, next to 8957 IRELAND, mixture of
two talk signals, goes away if below Preamp 2 on R75, so probably
receiver overload. Local talker KGWA 960 involved? but no strong SW
signals to be expected on 8000 or 9920. 8960 does happen to be even
7th harmonic of 1280, 8th of 1120, 14th of 640, 16th of 560 --- ahá,
8960 minus 1390 KCRC = 7570 WRMI TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, Sept 2 at 0650, soft music at only S3/S5, must be KVOH
nominally until 0600*, not unusual staying a bit later, but not this
late. Earlier blasts in but now struggling against falling MUF. EiBi
says irregularly as late as -0800. Only other 9975 is KTWR but not
until much later, 1200-1230 via Tajikistan, 1300-1400 really Guam
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. RF 31, 26, 21, 10, Sept 2 at 1504 UT, BAD DTV signals on
these `open` channels, correlating with Wichita market, as tropo maps
also show enhancement thataway. Also RF 15 OKC has become BAD no doubt
due to DX QRM. As always, my rooftop antenna remains fixed toward
OKC.

While researching this I also look for what DX I might get since
Enid`s only `local` TV station, K17JN-D of 3ABN, remains kaput, I hope
forever, but since it vanished, no DX logged on 17. KS and OK FCC
possibilities: KLBY Colby KS 400 kW; KAAS Salina KS 65 kW/CP 150; KTEN
Ada OK 1000 kW; and 4 scattered OK LP or translators. KTEN had been
seen several times when it was on 26 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 11835, Sept 2 at 0651, RV X 3 still missing (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 1 at 1419, RHC S9+10 and distorted song; // 15230
S9 and undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other
Side:

``RAUL CASTRO IS PUSHING THE REGIME TOWARDS A VIOLENT DEMISE``
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1661975132_41947.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6679 USB, Sept 1 at 0622, VOLMET in English S5. DU
accent matches EiBi as Auckland at H+20 & 50; shared 24h with Tokyo at
10 & 40, Hong Kong at 15 & 45 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 1 at 0624, VON is on in undermodulated Hausa,
S9/+20 direct.

7254.933, also on Sept 1 at 1736, S7/9+10 into Canary SDR, with plenty
storm crashes like locally as I close down for lunch, VON English.
Recheck at 1835 when I have to camp on Scottsburg, Indiana, still on
with squeal, S9/+20. Now lightning is N of Canary in Atlantic, central
to N Morocco, NW Algeria. 1937 another check, now below huge CRI
Turkish 7255.0 making LAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2154)

** SWAZILAND. 9585, Sept 1 at 1454, TWR music box IS, ID
``broadcasting from --- --- ---``, 1455 into language. Could not make
out word, but 3 syllables: Af-ri-ca? Man-zi-ni? Swa-zi-land?
``E-Swatini`` would have 4 syllables. At first I thought it would be
Guam, but SWZ is sked in Malgache 1455-1525 M-F, French Sat/Sun; ergo
long-path. CRI Japanese also sked from 1458, oh2; I tuned out before

** U S A. 5130 minus 70 Hz = 5129.93, UT Thu Sept 1 at 0200-0215, WBCQ
R. Angela with Zacharias Liangas and playing some more Greek music, in
an open hour; unfortunately can`t understand much of what he says due
to imperfect reception into Maryland SDR and accent. 0215-0300 rest of
hour jazz, intro & outro by synthYL voice. ZL says he will also be
co-hosting his regular weekly Greek Music Refuge, UT Saturdays at
0230-0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Sept 1 at 1456, WBCQ/WLCR off again, and not back by
1501 if it were pausing for rotation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Sept 1 at 0205, RCM/WEWN is off now too even during
primetime, but still daytimes on 12050. Stephen Luce, Houston TX, also
replies Sept 1: ``Glenn, for WEWN I have not heard anything recently
on 5970 at a number of checks in local evening and early morning. Just
now around 1800 UT September 1 I am hearing a poor to fair signal on
12050 with many deep fades. On further reduced power?`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2154)

** U S A. Re KDJW with EWTN: ``As for the 1010 in Amarillo: It was a
Country music station for many years, later flipping to Talk. After
that it had a Regional Mexican Spanish language format, followed by
ESPN Sports Radio. More recently it went to Spanish language religion
followed by English language Catholic programming. Stephen Luce,
Houston, Texas`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2154)

** VANUATU. 11835, Sept 1 at 0625, still no signal from RV X 3. While
boring now, these non-log confirmations will be useful if it ever come
back (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2154)

SEMICOLON SWEEPSTAKES; I am proud to announce that the latest Roundup
8/25-8/31 broke the 100 barrier with 101 semicolons; last few
reversely accomplished 66, 82, 106. Of course the size of each issue
has a considerable influence on these totals; but I doubt many could
match my *rate* of semicoloning; some never even type them! ... three
dots are no substitute (gh;)

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 11780, Aug 30 at 0110, RNA is on tonight unlike last night,
VG signal but no spurs; 6180 still off. Whatever became of their big
DRM plans after last year`s successful tests of low power but high
gain? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13020 & 13530, Aug 30 at 1448, VP CNR1 jammers found only
here in the 13s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST TURKISTAN

** CUBA. 6060 & 6165, Aug 30 at 0621, RHC English only here, but no
leapfrog audible on 6270, in case they be simulsited. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. 5040 still on, in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 7265, Aug 30 at 1835 first noted as
splash against 7255 tuned at Canary SDR for absent Nigeria: VG
S9+10/20 of really neat Chinese folk/romantic songs, a couple brief
announcements sound slightly Slavic, and Bulgarian is scheduled at
1830-1900 only via Urumqi, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uyghurs and other Moslems. So another language service replaced by
music. 1855 closing announcement to 1857* uncovering BBC in English
via MADAGASCAR scheduled 1700-2000 but not a trace of it while CRI was
on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT 9439.995, Aug 29 at 2157, no signal from R. Cairo into
Maryland SDR, nor later on UTwente check. Something`s always egregious
in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Aug 30 at 0617, VON is on, Hausa.

7254.9325, Aug 30 at 1757, VON, S8/S9+10 vs high storm noise level
into Canary Islands SDR. 1758 drumming and English announcement, 1800
timesignal and off immediately, as if deliberate rather than a
failure. Had been staying for another hour in English and past 1900
into Fulfulde vs ChiCom QRM. 1832 still off. But 1859 recheck is back
on in time to collide with CRI carrier, 1900 Turkish, way under ChiCom
signal but enough to mar it with a LAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933 USB, Aug 30 at 0112, noises, laughing SFX, 0130
still S8/S9. Many logs here say it`s Zeeky with Vermont Public Radio
Alt:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,101266.0.html
Some editors delete my weblinx making these logs much less meaningful
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, Aug 30 at 0113, mostly talking pirate, YL;
0130 still, S9+10. These have IDs as Alabama Public Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,101264.0.html
Was a pirate really relaying legit APR? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.3, Aug 29 circa 2030 UT as I am driving around Enid,
``Jake``, KJKE, 100 kW country station is getting CCI from sports
talk, within which is an ad with a recognizable Stillwater address
mentioning 6th Avenue, Perkins Road. What? We already have SW stations
on 93.7 and 94.3. KJKE rimshots OKC from Newcastle which is closer to
Norman and hardly has a solid signal here, but the QRM is not heard
before. Finally, a ``Triple Play Sports Radio`` slogan. Which is on
KOSB 105.1 Perry, KOKP 1020 Perry and KOKB 1580 Blackwell. Make that
Quadruple? WTFDA FMDB shows this is not in SW but the FM side of
further 1580 KOKB Blackwell, a mere 250-watt translator, K227DK. Yet
it`s almost as strong as KJKE, a bit of tropo boost? Note distances
below.

Make that Quintuple, as they have another translator in Stillwater
itself, which I don`t hear, 93.1 K226CW with only 170 watts; and which
they hardly need with near-local signals from the Perrys. Not that I
care, but while normally simulcasting, they can split three-ways when
stupid ballgames are simultaneous in the three towns, such as Friday
night HSFB? Not that I care about country KJKE getting QRMed; I just
do care about one more impediment to real FM DX. Enid/Blackwell 70 km
= 44 mi; Enid/Newcastle 129 km = 80 mi, a lot closer than the one in
NSW, 107X further, great circly, that is, considerably less direct
thru the Earth (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855 & 11940, Mon Aug 29 at 2158, no signals from REE into
Maryland SDR, so forget NAm & SAm, but 15520 for ME is good S9+5 off
the back with odesong to matadores, in time for 2200 token English:
after Justin`s news, Amy`s feature is interviews with members of a
Cirque du Soleil-like troop of acrobats in Alicante, ``Luzvia`` or
something like that explained as a combo of luz and lluvia = light and
rain. During which at 2224 I check UTwente which agrees 17855 & 11940
are off, 15520 not so good but 11670 is also on. Something`s always
nonfunxional at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 29 at 2157, VOT is on today, but squealing:
forget it, over to Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), Aug 30 after 0500, UR1 via WRMI, ``U:SI``
for Aug 29, Day 187, the fast-talker played back at 0.75 speed:
http://ukr.radio/images/ckeditor/files/files/ENG_NEWS_29_08_22.mp3
including: commemorating U defenders who died; U repelling R attax on
all fronts. Tough psychological blows to enemy spirit, demoralized.
Villagers injured in attack near Zap. Cows ran off away from big
crater. IAEA to visit power plant tomorrow, area still being shelled.
U army gaining combat experience that NATO doesn`t have.

VOA`s `Flashpoint: Ukraine` I haven`t heard or logged lately, but
reconfirmed Aug 30 at 1935 on WRMI 15770, fair only S9/S5 into
Maryland SDR; and on NO VOA SW frequencies of its own, shame (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2153 monitoring: ``I was sitting
outdoors in Tuscany last night [Sunday August 28], scanning through
the crowded medium wave dial on my radio around 2026 UTC. That's when
I heard a voice in English at 1323 kHz. Lo and behold, it was Glenn
Hauser's voice! It turned out I had tuned in the final minutes of
"World of Radio" airing on IRRS, which broadcasts about 250 kilometers
from where I'm vacationing this week. Eric Fetters-Walp``

We have made no such arrangement, but it seems WOR can be reached via
Alexa. It was missing for a while, Amazon glitch? Tim Hendel says:

``Glenn, I say to Alexa, “Alexa, play Glenn Hauser’s World of Radio.”
If it is not the edition I want, I say, “Alexa, play the next (or
previous) edition.” If I want the latest WOR, I say, “Alexa, play the
latest edition of Glenn Hauser’s World of Radio.” This should get the
job done. 73, Tim``

Confirmed UT Tuesday August 30 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9/+15 into
Maryland SDR. Between the WRMI ID and WOR, Jeff White`s voice
intrudes: ``But now the world is in turmoil``! Yeah, so? Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330v, Aug 30 at 1533 and 1941, no signal from WLCR/WBCQ.
What`s the matter now? When on it sounds OK besides never being
on-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5970, Aug 30 at 0619, R. Católica Mundial, WEWN is absent;
normally all-night here, and all-day on 12050. Yes, that confirmed at
1942 check, but they are two separate transmitters (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Aug 30 at 0616, VR still AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VATICAN [non?]. 17615, Aug 30 at 1526, surprised to find VP signal,
YL in English, S7/S9 direct, something about radio stations. Hardly
anything else on band except 17630 CRI/Mali. Soon choral music; from
1546 I`m on UTwente where it`s better, now obviously Christian. Only
thing in EiBi & Aoki, never HFCC, is Sa`udi HQS in Arabic at 13-16! No
way, no sign of that, but I recall more than a sesquidecade ago, BSKSA
did have English on SW around this time. 1550 it`s RCC, as the pope is
singing in Latin, mixed with narration spoken play-by-play or
translation. Nothing in HFCC, Aoki or EiBi about VR on 17615 anywhen.
Must be a special event. At 1553 I check the website and find this
along with same live on YT: ``started 29 minutes ago: From St. Peter's
Basilica, Holy Mass presided over by Pope Francis with the new
Cardinals``. By 1611 QRM from heavy splatter out of 17600 which must
have just come on, Algeria. I let it run anyway, 1625 choral music
until Vatican off at 1647*. Site? Maybe SMG but not surprised if
Madagascar, as only other 16m sig was out of Africa, Mali (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
