Hauser
** CUBA. 6100, Sunday October 25 at 0720, RHC in weekly Esperanto
still here - tho missing last week per wb. S9+20 with hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. B-20 changes not there for a couple weeks, post
timezone shift in a week, as a Running Dog of Yanqui Imperialism,
coördinated with USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5959.923v: See NETHERLANDS [non] and TURKEY

** FRANCE. 7245, Oct 25 at 0620, Qur`an at S7-S8, something new next
to 7255 Nigeria. HFCC B-20 shows it`s RFI this hour, 500 kW at 170
degrees, multilingual across Africa. But I cannot believe RFI would be
Qur`aning. ALGERIA would be, but B-20 scheduled this hour only on 6105
for Issoudun relay, plus own imaginaries (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 6165, Oct 25 at 0625, M&W in Arabic, S9/+10. It`s NHK
via FRANCE this semihour, 500 kW at 140 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Oct 24 at *2359 shortly after TURKEY has
closed, fortunately, rather than another spurious hour in German,
which they have not done lately; Nauen carrier for The Mighty farty
KBC weekly UT Sunday 00-02 to NAm has come on, making LAH with
Xinjiang PBS, Urumqi, now scheduled to start at 2330, and always
off-frequency minus. In AMSynch mode, UTwente SDR locates that on
5959.923v, and stays locked to it rather than Nauen closer to 5960.00;
levels are roughly equal. I was hearing XPBS as early as 2356 when
Turkey went off and unseemed Mandarin until 2358; at 0000, 5+1
timesignal as KBC is also signing on. At 0006 October 25 I check
direct reception here and hear only KBC, so that`s what matters to
them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNIDENTIFIED: 6925-USB, Oct 25 at 0007, weak S3-S5
pirate music. More logs of this as unID, no guesses:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,73315.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 12055, Oct 25 at 1352, S7-S9 tonal
language. B-20 USAGM via TINian now scheduled 1330-1430 in
Myanmarianese. WEWN Spanish not on 12050 yet till 5970 change at
1400.

9390, Oct 25 at 1402, weak Chinese? No longer Thailand in English here
which has moved to 9940; HFCC shows 9390 this hour be USAGM in zho =
Chinese via TINIAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. RRI B-20 scheduling checked ASAP UT Oct 25, tuning UTwente
for English to North America one hour later: 0105, VG S9+30 on 7325 &
6130; 0452 at Maine SDR: 6020 VG and 7410 good but latter with noise
out to 7405 and 7415, residual Cuban jamming? (Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Oct 24 at 2344, VOT English to NAm has already made
B-20 seasonal change to 2300 on 5960 instead of 2200 on 9830. HFCC
seasons nominally start at 0100 UT Sundays, but it`s already Oct 25 in
Turkey --- first log of the season! Via UTwente SDR, Turkish music at
S9+10/20; 2349 ID, more music; 2354 YL canned sign-off as if it were
still A-20 at 1230 on 15450!! A bit more IS and now I can hear CCI
making a LAH from off-frequency-minus Xinjiang PBS Urumqi, East
Turkistan, land of cultural genocide by the ChiCom imperialists
against the Uyghurs. Continued at NETHERLANDS [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 6125, Oct 25 at 0403, VOT English to W North America
confirmed at new B-20 time and frequency, news to 0405, then that
COVID-19 PSA and music. Checked via Maine SDR, where there is noise in
the 6120-6130 range, presumed still Cuban jamming against Martí which
finishes 6125 in B-20 at 0400, too close for comfort! 0400 is the
final repeat of the original now 1330 UT VOT English; make that
``olds``.

Speaking of which, Oct 24 circa 1323, had a JBA carrier on the last
day of the real 15450 broadcast from 1230. Oct 25 at 1352, B-20
reactivation of 12035 from 1330 bears JBA music, not enough yet; aimed
for Europe but we be directly beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2057 monitoring: not checked Sat
Oct 24 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, since sked shows without notice it has
been replaced.

Confirmed UT Sunday October 25 at 0324 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+20

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Oct 25 at 0017, WTWW-2 starting `TOUTA`,
distorted as usual here but this week I bring up the $ tereo webcast.
Bob Heil is playing recordings of deceased colleagues` performances,
including some pre-echo audible during a pause, which means it`s
print-thru on a reel-to-reel tape. 0048 as soon as some applause
start, WTWW hastily cuts to ID and back to rock music, whew! Enough of
that theatre organ stuff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5945, Oct 25 at 1356 and 1448, JBA carrier as I am
hunting for RNZI in B-20. HFCC shows something from UZBEKISTAN for Pan
American [sic] Broadcasting, like Tony Alamo? at 13-14 but on day 7 =
Saturday only and this is Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6170.090, Oct 25 at 1355 and still 1448, JBA
off-frequency carrier as I hunt for RNZI, which I later find from 1259
has moved from 6170 to 6115 as of October 26. Tentative B-20 HFCC even
shows Bangladesh at 13-14 on 6170! Most likely this be KOREA NORTH,
VOK with PBS relay to Europe as per Arnulf`s B-20 schedule (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** SWEDEN. (17.2 kHz VLF), it`s United Nations Day, Oct 24, 2020, and
time for another broadcast of SAQ in Grimeton, Sweden, 200 kW via the
historic Alexanderson Alternator.

https://alexander.n.se/saq-grimeton-transmission-on-october-24th-2020/?lang=en

I know I can`t get it direct, so monitor the event via their live
YouTube stream which was to start at 1430 UT. After breakfast, I bring
it up at 1449. A woman MC is speaking but we can`t hear a word she
says, drowned out by the huge noises of the machinery. And there is no
captioning. Perhaps in Swedish so I could not understand her anyway.
But as a camera wanders around, we have great views in the hall, not
only of the AA but associated stuff, huge control panels with lots of
switches and meters. At 1451, we can barely hearsee a test
transmission as the relays are clicking and flashing, VVV DE SAQ.

1453, a man is talking but again unhearable; at 1454 a full test ID,
VVV VVV VVV DE SAQ SAQ SAQ. 1456, camera goes outside for a quieter
view of the antenna towers, 1457 back inside, still noisy. The few
people in the hall are not masked, but some are wearing ear mufflers.

1500, the official transmission starts as we see the operator keying
with his right hand. Cannot hear it! But sporadic views of the readout
on a nearby laptop. Website says ``We are proud to announce that this
year’s message has been composed by Anders Tegnell – Chief
Epidemiologist Public Health Agency of Sweden.`` I notice one error in
the display, missing a dit, ``ewidemiologist``. This runs until 1509.
Of course he is warning about COVID-19.

Disappointingly, at no time during the broadcast could we see any
motion by the AA, just its huge black casing. Noise starts to
diminish; 1511 finally we have a view of AA shafts still spinning,
running down? Some of these look cupric, while exteriors are all
painted black. 1511.5 a bell rings. 1512 can overhear a bit of
conversation in Swedish, again at 1516. 1518 noise finally stops
completely, turned off.

A concert of song by soprano and keyboard accompaniment has been
scheduled for 1520. At 1527 several audience members start to take
their seats --- do not see any masks. MC speaks off-mike. Mike for
singer appears to be for PA in the very echoey hall, not direct
connect to camera, so we are picking them up out of the loudspeakers,
never a good idea. Most of the songs seem to be in Swedish, but at
1545, one in English which I still cannot understand. YT shows only
400 viewing, but declining toward 300 as time goes on. Music ends at
1558; back outside at 1559 for another view of the towers and a
fountain; finishes at 1601*. I assume this sesquihour
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OErGFaT1esI
will remain available indefinitely for later audioviewing, just like
the previous half-sesquihour from July 5, 2020 which then started
autoplaying unbidden.

Meanwhile I was observing the live ``top chat`` sidebar, indicating
lots of people were trying to hear 17.2 kHz, some successfully, or at
least via UTwente. A few selected items:

``Pop Tibi​: yes the frequency drifts a bit, depending on the load on
the alternator's driving motor

David J.C. CORTVRIENT​: NO MASKS 😬 be carrefull PLEASE

David Newkirk: ​Long live the UN! Long live SAQ!
David Newkirk​: Karl-Arne: How much mains power v VLF output?
David Newkirk​: Radio as Art, and now Art after Radio.

Glenn Hauser: ​Tnx for streaming this as far as Oklahoma. Hello, David
Newkirk

Phil Erickson​: @Glenn Hauser --- Thanks for decades of DX and SW
listening reports - still receiving through WOR. W1PJE

David Newkirk: ​Hi, Glenn!

World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station: ​Stay tuned for a concert with
live music, when Anna-Louise Ekman perform beautiful tones in the
transmitter hall. Later on, we will also start the laser art work
"Transmission". [I missed that!]

World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station: ​Due to the non working
microphone, Managing Director Camilla Lugnet´s speech will be posted
in the comments after the transmission.``

This ended just in time for me to catch Independent Lens, which I also
recommend if you can find it via PBS:

``Independent Lens - Feels Good Man #2202 - OETA WORLD - DESCRIPTION:
Follow artist Matt Furie, creator of the comic character Pepe the
Frog, as he begins an uphill battle to take back his iconic cartoon
image from those who use it for their own purposes [such as Alex
Jones]. Duration: 1:26:46`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2057 monitoring: slept thru Sat Oct
24 at 1130 on WRMI 9955 - did anyone hear it?

Confirmed, Sat Oct 24 at 1318 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, S9+10 but with
hum, and modulation rather than signal seems to be fading down at
times. Next:

** U S A. 9395, I have not yet rechecked this WRMI myself, fortunately
not affecting WOR, but on the WOR iog October 24:

``Subject: [WOR] WRMI 9395 kHz Update ---- As posted to the WRMI FB
page: "0530 UTC Friday October 23 - Update on WRMI Transmitter 6 (9395
kHz). Our engineers repaired the capacitor problem and we were able to
get the transmitter back on the air. Unfortunately it appears that the
power surge which caused the initial problem also damaged something in
the modulator section, which means the audio is extremely distorted.
They are continuing to track down that problem. In the meantime, we
are moving the programs that are normally on 9395 kHz from 2200-0100
UTC over to the nearby frequency of 9455 kHz, and we are extending our
schedule on 9955 kHz to 1200-0400 UTC." -- Richard Langley``

Bob Biermann, GA, replies: ``I have been on the phone, and this one is
not going to be easy to fix. Many of the parts are no longer
available, and it may take a reworking of the audio section. For those
that think that these units are easy to fix, or can be affordably
replaced, they can’t. This type of problem may take a few days to a
few weeks to resolve`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, Oct 24 at 0535, no trace of WRMI, and not for some
time, I realize as I ponder the JBA carrier on 5040. Altho not on its
skedgrid, WRMI had been running 4980 QRP, maybe exciter only,
sometimes with music modulation detected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Oct 24 at 0533, WTWW-2 with S9+40 of dead air, along
with JBA parasitic spurs about 5072 & 5098 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5040, Oct 24 at 0534, JBA carrier in absence of RHC
which has been off all evening. May be same one heard at 0030 which
could have been India, but certainly not now. Not Vanuatu either.
Possibly RHC with exciter only of a few watts; some utility; or who
knows? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, our morning Oct 23 at 1357: 11460
Chinese with flutter; 11100 S3; 11070 & 10870 JBA until 1400* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey around our sunset here, Oct 23 at 2338:
6865, Chinese S6-S8 with flutter. After pirate check, so then I seek
others graylinish, JBA carriers or JBA u.o.s., from 2346: 9155, 9180,
9215, 9280; 2348: 9300 S6-S9; 2351: 13530 S7-S9; 13130, 13070; 12870
S3-S4; 12835, 12820; 12500 S5-S6; 12365, 12210. 2356: 11500, 11440,
11170, 11120; 11100 S7-S8; 11070 S9+10; 10870, 10820. Almost/all of
these are Aoki-listed SOH *jammed frequencies. I did not have time to
search above 14 MHz where more do reside (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11845, Oct 23 at 1439, residual noise jamming on an ex-Radio
Martí daytime frequency, long-gone for how many years now? Other
broadcasters should beware if they think it`s available. Maybe they
are, for Aoki shows nothing but CNR2 at 00-11, the ChiCom being cool
anyway with jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Oct 24 at 0033, as soon as I tune in Radio Progreso
music it dumps off the air, back on at *0034.6, and now I also find
the extremely distorted but not very strong spurblob circa 4782, but
not much to match at minus 17 = 4748. Nor do I hear any Huanta on 4764
even while RP was off. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. See also
INDIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 4910, Oct 23 at 1745, no AIR Jaipur, nothing but noise to
New Delhi SDR. Closed down earlier? The only other Kiwi in India,
Bengaluru, keeps blocking me for having used it more than 180 minutes
per day while I have really used it zero.

I was checking for the last minutes ever of AIR Jaipur, as Jose Jacob,
dx_india, had warned Oct 22:

``Subject: AIR Jaipur - Last day on SW tomorrow 23 Oct 2020
All India Radio, Jaipur in Rajasthan is ending their SW transmissions
tomorrow ie 23 Oct 2020 at 1751 UTC (11.21 pm IST). Their schedule of
the 50 kW tx which was installed in 1992 is: 4910: 0025-0430,
1130-1751 UTC; 7325: 0630-0930 UTC`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 5040, Oct 24 at 0023, open carrier of S7-S9, certainly not
CUBA which is OFF, compared to 5025 Rebelde at S9+20. Fits for AIR
Jeypore, 50 kW, starting at 0026 per VU2JOS schedule; however no
modulation detected past 0030. I was hoping for at least a trace of
the lovely AIR IS. Now and then hit by ``running water`` ute QRM.

BTW, WRMI will no longer have to worry about Trivandrum 5010 QRM as
Jose Jacob says it`s one of several AIR stations just decommissioned.
That leaves Madagascar, and maybe a Cuban leapfrog with 5040 back on,
across 5025 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 11560, Oct 23 at 1441, SW/S Asian music, S8-S9+10 with heavy
flutter. This is one of our best chances to hear what`s left of the
drastically curtailed AIR external service. Constantly updated
https://qsl.net/vu2jos/sw/freq.htm
shows it`s 500 kW from Bengaluru, 1315-1415 in Dari, 1415-1530 Pushtu;
also 0215-0430. Unfortunately no longer carries relay of domestic news
in English at 1500; and what`s the azimuth? No AIR in HFCC any more,
no angles in WRTH or Aoki or EiBi or VU2JOS. Must be roughly to the
NW; in 2017 had a 320 degree on another frequency while 11560 was via
Goa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, Oct 23 at 2337, pirate music, S9 but
distorted with parlato, ``Dread Zeppelin``? As others report it at
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,73231.0.html
2341 SSTV beepery; 2343 more music with exclamations, 2350 tones and
off. It was Damn Skippy per HFU reports, displaying fuzzy SSTV (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. 11870, Oct 23 at 1438, S6-S9 with heavy trans-polar
flutter, song maybe in English. Aoki/NDXC shows it`s AWR in Chinese
this hour only via Trincomalee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 23 at 2200, VOT English is on, but only VP into
UTwente vs QRM from NSS RTTY even over there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2057 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday October 24 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9+15 into UTwente SDR.

** U S A. 9395, Oct 23 at 1433 and later chex, WRMI-6 remains off the
air; on exactly same nominal parameters, 100 kW at 355 degrees is
9455, still on, so easy to compare them. Discussed in WOR iogroup:

``USA. Message just posted on the WRMI Facebook page: "1915 UTC
Tuesday October 20 - WRMI's Transmitter 6 (9395 kHz) is temporarily
off the air due to a blown capacitor and some other minor damage. Our
engineers are working to get it back on the air, but we may need some
parts, so it could be tomorrow before it gets back on the air. We
apologize for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience."
Alan Roe, Teddington, UK``

[non] ``WRMI's current absence on 9395 kHz is allowing good reception
of Radio Thailand on 9390 kHz. Currently audible October 21, 2020 from
1312 UTC tune in finishing up English broadcast. ID "Radio Thailand
broadcasting from Bangkok" in English at 1315 UTC then into Chinese
language program with male announcer. Currently S-3 peaking to S-5,
SINPO = 34333. Mike Newland, Morgantown, KY``

[non non] Last I heard from the site was that part of the problem is
fixed, but there are still issues. Maybe tomorrow. There is only ONE
engineer on site for 14 transmitters and 23 antenna systems, and he is
only part-time and semi-retired. The engineering situation is getting
grim in this business, as we are all aging out. If I was in Florida I
could help, but we are at out Mountain Home until after Christmas.``
-- Bob Biermann, YWS, northern Georgia, Oct 21.

You would think one of the otherwise idle transmitters could
substitute, but maybe not serviceable, feasible, or worth the trouble.
Certain transmitters only connect to certain antennas, so even if
retuned to 9395, it might have to emit in a `wrong` direxion (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2057)

** U S A. 6159.912 & 7490.061, UT Sat Oct 24 at 0003, both WBCQs are
about equally sufficient for `AAAWWW`, ``WTO`` theme ending and AW
opening show teasing? listeners about how gorgeous his half-naked wife
is in the 84-degree studio; I cannot think of any other radio host who
always begins thus. She is to him a welcome distraxion, but more
seriously they complain about distracted drivers; and hear from
someone who sadly sold his Harley rather than risk them. Then
discussing the centennial of regular broadcasting by KDKA, but also
WWJ Detroit, apparently reading an entire article from a September
Radio World past 0030. By 0039 more technical about `BCQ: He loves
meters and insisted Continental install them, maybe for the last time,
on the 500 kW. All the old transmitters are tube-type and one has 18
meters on it, so he can view directly what any stage is doing. At 0050
finally reveals it`s 23rd of October, YOOL 2020, into e-mail briefly;
0055 starts to read some Free Radio Weekly items, but none ensue since
immediately allowed to be interrupted by a caller telling a story of
how he had a vision in September that Trump would win by an approx.
2:1 margin --- they can only hope!! Anyhow may have been last week`s
FRW as I for one had not received my new issue yet. Now only a minute

I then switch to LSB tuning from 1 kHz above the 9-kHz steps, not in

kHz. *strongest; (2) at least two carriers beating (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9218, Oct 23 at 1432, S5-S8 open carrier. The persistent
OC on 9200 is not on right now, possibly same transmitter. 9200 is
back on later in day and no 9218, such as at 2347, S8-S9. Note that
sometimes there is also a CNR1 jammer on 9200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11137-USB, Oct 23 at 2357, 2-way in Spanish, maybe legit
aerocomms but I doubt it. I run across these during CNR1 jammer
bandscans, in fact another one I missed logging in haste to beat the
jammer closings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, October 22 at

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 21 at 1540 check, no signal of
LRA36 into Brasil SDR, so apparently no Wednesday show this week,
having specialized on Tuesday. Now for Saturday? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, Oct 21 at 1655, Radio Martí is still on the
air, altho hardly audible last night on, 7, 6 or 5 MHz channels. VG,
and way above jamming now, if any; cannot really hear any nor on //
11860, 11930.

11930, Oct 21 at 1657, Radio Martí has more QRM from a second weaker
broadcaster making a SAH of about 8 Hz, than from any jamming. This
would be its only other competitor for 11930, Voice of TURKEY also in
Spanish! at 1630-1728, 500 kW due west from Emirler, intended for
España only. Furthermore, from it I hear a 5+1 timesignal at 1700, the
last pip prolonged at same pitch, but not prepared to rate it vs WWV.

Has Cuban jamming been eliminated or reduced? At 2015 check, RM is
still very strong on 11930, 11860, 9535; but a bit of jamming under is
JBA during pauses. No RM DRM noise to be heard on 7340-7345-7450. Is
that experiment over? As in a previous report, 7345 is still
registered in B-20 but as analog, like many other HFCC errors(?)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 17880, Oct 21 at 1651, very slow Chinese at S7-S9; must be

** U S A [and non]. Re: ``17775-, Oct 20 at 1410, zero signal from
KVOH if on. If KVOH do make it to Caribbean, South America, these
should squeeze:...`` --- Ray Robinson of KVOH replies:

``Hi, Glenn. KVOH was streaming only on Oct 20, and was off air on
17775 due to a staffing issue. Should be back tomorrow. Ray.``

Wolfgang Buschel replies: ``Checked on Oct 21 in 14-15 UT time range.
Nothing observed in Perseus SDR rx Net here in Europe, in D__, SUI,
AUT, HNG, U.K. countries - etc. Only:

17770.012 kHz nearby adjacent channel TURKEY TRT Emirler in Arabic,
S=9+25dB in sidelobe into Germany, But in Cape Canaveral Florida SDR
rx installation: USA {Alta California, former MEX}

17774.993 kHz KVOH Spanish program, some smooth canciones at 1446 UT
on Oct 21. Each sideband strong 60 Hertz main power buzz string
visible. But audio nicely listenable of approx. 9 kHz wide audio
block.

At 15 UT, VoA Hausa via Santa Maria di Galeria - Vatican State,
started at poor S=5 -97dBm level. 73 wolfie df5sx wwdxc germany``

I am not sure what he means by the last item, which frequency? no such
scheduling, only BBC Hausa via Ascension 17780 at 1400-1430 only.
