Hauser
** CHINA [and non]. 15130, June 5 at 1353, two Chinese mixing: CNR1
jammer and VOA via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, this hour only (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13650, June 5 at 1314, two equal stations in Chinese,
partially music, a low-audible-heterodyne apart. In this case it`s not
jamming but double-Commie incompetence, per Aoki/NDXC, this hour both
Voice of KOREA [NORTH] in Chinese, and CRI in Chinese via Urumqi, EAST
TURKISTAN, land of imprisoning and brainwashing Uighurs (which of
course the Juche jackasses also impose on their own people) (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammers, June 5 at 1355-: 11440 S8-S9, 11150 S3-S5,
11100, 10920, 10870.

At 1359 a hasty scan above and below 13000 finds only 12880 in music.

At 1416, 11460 at S7-S9; 11580 S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13650, June 5 at 2315-2357*, CRI Portuguese service
via CUBA is nothing but nice instrumental Chinese music (NOT raucous
Firedragon), to accompany my nap; cuts off without any announcement.
They used to sign-on in Portuguese before defaulting to music, still?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, June 5 at 0613, S4-S5 of dead air vs CODAR; obviously
RHC 2 x 6100 also with dead air in English at S9+30/40. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 11510, June 5 at 1358, JBA carrier during CNR1
jammer search, but per Aoki/NDXC, only thing anywhen on 11510 is Radio
Free North Korea at 13-14 via UZBEKISTAN. Or as in WRTH, Free North
Korea Radio; and allegedly jammed. The userlist version of Aoki does
not explain what * means, but apparently applied to jamming only by
China as not upon Martí frequencies either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 9955, Friday June 5 at 1406, WRMI-3 is still on with
Freedom Synergy Radio, anti-PRC discussion in English. Original
publicity for this said it would be on at 1400 via webcast but not SW;
forgot to turn it off? Has anyone ever heard FSR in Spanish, also per
original notice? Blalock the Blaster will impossiblize this on Sat &
Sun, truly sked on 9955 until 1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TIBET [non]. 11570, June 5 at 1358, music unlike the CNR1 jammers
being surveyed, 1400 still on open carrier S4-S7. Listed 12-14 is RFA
Tibetan via KUWAIT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 5 at 2225, VOT fair S4-S7 with music, no RTTY
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring: confirmed first
NAm broadcast, Friday June 5 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, good via TWR SDRs
both in Bonaire (er, ``Caribbean Netherlands``), and Dominican
Republic, no jamming audible; at 2225 check direct to OK, only S4-S6,
very poor.

Also confirmed UT Sat June 6 at 0130 on WRMIs, audible on all three in
decreasing strength order from VG to fair: at Bonaire, 5010 > 5850 >
7780; at Alexandria VA, 5850 > 5010 > 7780. Next:

Would those awake at 1130 Saturday please confirm whether WOR be on
WRMI 9955, as it was not last week tho still scheduled; direct, remote
receiver, or webcast will suffice. Tnx.

** U S A. 7490v // 6160v // 5130v, UT Sat June 6, WBCQ cuts off FKB
gospel huxter --- does that stand for Father Knows Best? --- before he
can sign off with wrong WINB frequency, starting `William Tell
Overture` promptly for `AAAWWW`; final interjexion sounds like
``Klondike`` --- OKaayy. Initial topix are black flies (again),
mosquitoes, ice cream and air conditioning, subjects which do not
really draw me in, so will anticipate John Carver`s full report:

``Tonight's show started on time on 5130, 6160 and 7490. Allan and
Angela in the studio. Opening talk about black flies, Klondike Bars
and mosquitoes. Phone call at 0010 from Andy talking about ice cream
and air conditioning in cars.

Allan reads an email congratulating them on the wonderful music
special that they ran last night on three frequencies. Then came the
obligatory comments about how beautiful Angela is.

Phone call at 0024 about transmitters and monitoring radio usage by
reading the local oscillator signals. He also commented on the better
reception of 7490 this evening. Allan stated that they had increased
power on all the classic transmitters and replaced several tubes and
spent a lot of money in doing so and said he'd probably spend more
money on them before they go back to Fla.

He also said that he and Angela and Tom and another crew member had
fixed the tube ring on the big transmitter on Monday of this week. He
posted a picture of the ring on twitter today. Said it was about the
thickness of a paper towel and cost four thousand dollars. He is not
impressed with the ring or that system. They are running the
transmitter at slightly lower power for awhile at his command.

The plumbing job he talked of a couple of weeks ago started leaking
again. He said it was a Chinese coupler that gave out. He went to the
store and bought more supplies and did it all over again.

Then talk about a letter they received complaining about the Hal
Turner show. He said it was a very nice letter and they answered as
usual by saying they would do nothing to censor Hal Turner and if the
writer was concerned they should write directly to Hal Turner.

Reading of emails at 0053 and closing prayer at 0057. Show was off the
air at 0100 and 5130 signed off the air at that time instead of
continuing with the Hal Turner show as they've been doing recently.
John, Mid-North Indiana``

I do take the trouble to measure the frequencies at 0018, all of which
are wavering slightly --- is it something about the AC power supply in
Monticello causing that? 7489.965v, 6159.894v, 5129.979v (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, June 5 at 0604, dead air from WWCR-4 despite TOMBS
having bought out the transmitter; it`s committed to a certain amount
of dead air anyway. Who needs it? TOMBS is blaring away with equally
VG signal on 5850 WRMI-12, and modulated to boot, among others (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9110-9170, 9485-9510, 9845-9875, June 5 at 1401, local
sporadic scratchy noise blobs peaking roughly in center of these
ranges.

10205-10225, 10560-10590, 10920-10950, June 5 at 1408, more of them
audible up to 11 MHz, all at roughly/average 360-kHz intervals (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11494-USB, June 5 at 1355, 2-way in English, JBA with
uteblaaps. In UDXF iog several recent logs here from USCG Cutters
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated June 3:

** BRAZIL. 9665.067, June 4 at 0603, JBA music, presumed RVM, always
off-frequency but much weaker than it can be. The only ZY I am
detecting on 31m overnight. And hardly any left on the other bands.

We have lost *so many* SW stations, especially from this huge country
which not long ago had a thriving domestic SW scene. Here are the SW
frequency pages from the 2005 World Radio TV Handbook, only a
sesquidecade ago. How many do you recognize or remember hearing?

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13790.047, June 4 at 0613, Chinese at
S9-S7. It`s RFA via SAIPAN, this hour only; previous log via TINIAN
was also 47 Hz high, askew signatures of these USAGM stations:
13575.047, May 30 at 1427 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2037)

** U K [non]. 12015, June 4 at 0607, fair in English news about
democratic movement in China, national-anthem law, Hong Kong; COVID-19
with someone from a London school. Yes, it`s BBCWS scheduled this hour
only via VATICAN. Lots of other 25mb signals now in the nightmiddle,
tnx to the Midnight Sun (Glenn Hauser, OK,, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, June 5 at 0150, 0159, 0202 chex, NO signal from this
WBCQ, when `The Big Broadcast of 2020` is supposed to be repeating
triply. I had lamented that the original airing a few weeks ago on
7490 and only in the daytime at 2100 UT would peter out long before it
got to OK, so Bill Tilford got this nighttime playback scheduled. 5130
however does eventually come on, by next check 0223. At the outset I
also have a JBA carrier on 3265.1, which could be the other `BCQ, but
not committed to carry this.

Meanwhile, the BBC does start at 0200 on 7490 and 6159.9v following
the far right nonsense from Hal Turner. I don`t need to listen now
since I heard it the first time via webcast, but I hope others are
getting it better now than I am, with too much storm noise from the SW
corner of KS and the SW quadrant of OK.

I notice immediately that they are not synchronized: 6159.9 is a word
ahead of 7490, and 5130 is a few words behind 7490. By 0223 all three
register S9/+10 on the meter, and 7490 suffers the least storm noise,
5130 the most as to be expected. Now if this were only on 9330 instead
of the wacko flat-earthers, would be loud and clear. Too bad the deal
with WLC did not allow for WBCQ`s own programming to take over on
special occasions or for a few hours per week. It`s the least they
could do for causing Allan so much grief to keep it running (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7703 approx., June 4 at 0555, local scratch noise blob
peaking here and elsewhere is still/again on. And circa 1400, when an
OG&E maintenance truck is spotted next to my closest pole, the one
with the automatic streetlight circa sundown, but soon gone and no
change yet in the problem.

7703 et al., gone again at 0121 check June 5, clearing the bands for
unfettered storm noise (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 13070 & 12880, June 3 at 1358, CNR1 jammers with
song, about to go off.

>From 1433 June 3, a bunch more for this hour, some with // audio,
others carriers only and presumed: 13160 S4-S8, 12820, 12800, 12190.

At 1437, 11580, 11460, 11440, 11170, 11150, 11100, 11070 S9-S6, 10920,

At 1455, 12210, 12450?

11370, June 3 at 1439, JBA carrier presumed rather new local mix of
1390 KCRC + 9980 WWCR TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, Wed June 3 at 2200-2230, REE English monitored for
convenience via UTwente SDR, much better there than 9690: second
program in revived series is nothing but Allison Hughes narrating,
with some musical relief, a detailed review of how the pandemic has
affected Spain, finished just in time, ``hasta pronto`` for the 2230
timesignal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: confirmed Wed June 3 from
2100:20 on WBCQ 7490v, VP. Next, and last repeat:

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

New WOR 2037 should be ready by early UT Friday June 5 for first WRMI
broadcast at 2200 on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, June 3 at 2051, 9955 WRMI is already on instead of
*2100, with screaming gospel huxter, Blalock the Blaster as the `Full
Gospel Hour` [sic] is now scheduled M-F at *2030.

15770, June 3 at 2057, on WRMI good signal, Bob Biermann musing,
upwrapping HIS `Your Weekend Show` as far as you can get from a
weekend, on Wednesday! So much for R. Tirana relay at 2030: in fact, I
see on the skedgrid that it and preceding Prague at 2000 are now
relegated to Mon & Tue only, obviously dispensable for other
programming the rest of week. 2100 into TOMBS.

7780, June 3 at 2100, no signal detectable from WRMI-1, off? JBA
carriers are on lower 5950 & 5800.

9395, June 3 at 2102, WRMI relay of RAE in Italian as scheduled, but
will it be octolingual by hourend? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Correxion: of the three 1270 stations, one of them is
non-direxional, KSCB, fixed:

1270, June 2 at 2014 UT, in full daytime conditions, KRXO Claremore
(Tulsa) OK silly sports talk at 5 kW with heavy SAH of exactly 1 Hz
from another groundwaver: got to be either 50 kW KFLC from Benbrook
(Metroplex) TX with Spanish sports talk; or 5 kW KSCB Liberal KS
talk/sport. KRXO and KFLC direxional to complicate. Need to DF and/or
pull a language.

Which I undertake 24+ hours later, June 3 at 2039 UT; on the same
setup, R75 and E-W longwire, now the subaudible heterodyne is only
47/minute or 0.78 Hz, so one or both must vary over time.

Then at 2045, I try the DX-398 portable outside, which has good
sensitivity and nulling: The main SAH peaks ESE/WNW, i.e. Claremore
and Liberal which are a few degrees from colinear, opposite direxions
thru Enid. At 2048, I count the SAH at 50/minute = 0.83 Hz --- really
varying, or margin of error?

But almost-nulling those, favoring SSW, I hear another weaker beat, of
154/minute = 2.57 Hz, and that has to be from KFLC in TX, against one
of the others.

Next at 2053 I try the NRD-545 with E-W magloop. This pulls in two
audios, both English AFAICT, and the beat is 49/minute = 0.82 Hz.

I cannot measure frequencies to fraxions of Hz, but only *compare*
those which are not zero-beat --- and lax engineering of US stations
insures that is: most of them.

Two of these stations make mwoffsets list, only a year or two old:
1270 1269.9985 USA KRXO (Claremore, OK) 2018-12-01
1270 1270.0006 USA KFLC (Fort Worth, TX) 2019-01-03
That means the SAH between them would be 2.1 Hz, not too far from my
current reading.

Distances, city-to-Enid city:
Claremore OK 203 km = 126 stmi
Liberal KS 281 km = 174 stmi
Benbrook TX 415 km = 258 stmi

Ground conductivity is mostly 30 over this part of OK, the greatest to
be found anywhere overland, maybe into 15 by BB TX. Tulsa itself may
be 15, but only 8 in a small area west of Tulsa between us --- 8 is
the same poor figure as across the MO/AR Ozarx.

Direxionality: 5 kW KRXO favors ENE/WSW with minor lobe at right
angle, but Enid appears to be close to a notch between them. 50 kW
KFLC aims major lobe to the east but fairly broad with some daytime
signal thisaway; 5 kW KSCB non-direxional.

This is an example of *pure DXing* as we have no interest whatsoever
in these stations` stupid sportstalk programming, whatever the
language. And no ionosphere required! (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9025, June 3 at 1445, open carrier (WOOB CNR1 jammers
are always(?) on -0 frequencies) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10930 approx., June 3 at 1444, local noise blob outlier,
along with stronger usual peak areas in 9-11 MHz span (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13131.31, June 3 at 1400, very weak ``puta madre`` 2-way
in Spanish; must have a fine sense of symmetry (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, June 3 at 0034, I find Voice of Greece S9+10 in
English, interviewing someone in Zimbabwe, with consecutive
translation and discussion of what he has said; about challenges in
agriculture, climate change, water shortage, paying off debt run up by
previous government; hopes to make a turnaround like Greece. Compares
the two countries geographically. There are some connexions, like
Greek churches and schools in Harare, and plans for the first Greek
university in Africa. The subject is of Greek heritage, his father
still speaking Greek; hopes to visit Greece often with his family when
that becomes possible. End of interview by 0051. One of those surprise
benefits of SW bandscanning, as I never expected to be learning about
Zimbabwe in this way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 17550, June 2 at 2002, no signal at all from R. Kuwait,
Arabic to C&W North America at 2000-2400, as scheduled for A-20 as
well as B-seasons, 250 kW at 350 degrees. If it ever make it, this is
the time, June-July with maximum Arctic transpolar insolation, while
it`s completely foolish to try it in the winters, starting out near
midnight local time! I am about to conclude it continue to be a
phantom service, not even really trying. With a few more sunspots,
it`s possible and have logged it only during previous summers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185, June 3 at 0029, S9+10 open carrier/dead air from
XEPPM: I struggle to detect any JBM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11730, June 2 at 2313, something new here, very poor
sounds Spanish; could it be RRI? ex-11800 usurped by Cuba? No CCI
there any more as I reported immediately RHC moved from 11850 a few
weeks ago. This would be // 11990 RRI, but that signal is JBA, too
weak to match on a second receiver. By 2325 I check them on UTwente
SDR, and yes, both are VG with RRI in stilted Spanish about their
anti-Communist revolution. Must be very recent switch as latest HFCC
dated 29 May still shows RRI on 11800, not 11730 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, June 2 at 2000, KVOH is on today but JBA with
English and Spanish IDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, UT Wed June 3 at 0122, this WBCQ is on but JBA,
presumably with W5KUB`s `Amateur Radio Roundtable` of Tuesday
evenings. Simultaneously, 5085 WTWW-2 is loud but no QSO ham show,
rather Ted hyping ``Global Hot 100`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. By June 3, WWCR has belatedly put up new schedules;
transmitters dated June 1-August 31, and programming as of June 1:
http://www.wwcr.com/program-guides/WWCR_Program_Guide.pdf

9980-7520-5890, as expected from monitoring, WWCR-4 has now been *sold
out* to Brother Scare, 24/7 except for 3 hours weekdays it was
already committed to other gospel huxters. BS had previously occupied
lots of fallow hours on the other transmitters, and those continue on
3215, 4840, 9350, 12160, 13845, 15825 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1270, June 2 at 2014 UT, in full daytime conditions, KRXO
Claremore (Tulsa) OK silly sports talk at 5 kW with heavy SAH of
exactly 1 Hz from another groundwaver: got to be either 50 kW KFLC
from Benbrook (Metroplex) TX with Spanish sports talk; or 5 kW KSCB
Liberal KS talk/sport. All of them direxional to complicate. Need to
DF and/or pull a language (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. June 2 at 2010, the 9-11 MHz area is free of local noise
blobs, but I fear it`s some device intermittently turned on if not
random electrical shorts (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Correxion: initially I called this REE instead of RHC!
Fixed:

11950-11975, June 1 at 2250, RHC splattering out of 11950 transmitter;
sounds a lot like the local noise blobs OG&E has been
working on, so at first feared they remain, but these have matching
modpeaxe to 11950. Not unusual for this frequency to be active before
2300 despite its razón de ser the `Mesa Redonda` separate TV audio
soundtrack hour nominally from 7 pm local (not 00-01 UT, don`t you
believe Aoki/NDXC`s outdated standard time info among others for RHC).
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9980, June 2 at 1331, girl-molester Brother
Scare is here on reactivated WWCR-4 transmitter; this frequency
available 12-24 UT, elsewhen 7520 or 5890, the latter again BSing
circa 0600. Looks like TOM has expanded greatly onto this formerly
mostly-idle transmitter. WWCR still has not updated its transmitter or
program schedules for June. So how about TOM? Ha! Still a year
out-of-date:

** SPAIN. (9690), Now I`ve listened to the archive recording of the
first resumed REE English broadcast June 1:

https://mediavod-lvlt.rtve.es/resources/TE_SEMIF01/mp3/9/2/1591100322329.mp3

Justin Coe & Alison Hughes are together again, but they speak for only
the first 4 minutes; no one at REE has been lost, but some colleagues
in other parts of RNE. In general tribute to COVID-19 victims, they
introduce this beautiful piece of music, Requiem by Francisco
Guerrero, not familiar to me, but even in extended podcast it`s
truncated, cut off abruptly at 32:42. And it looks like they are back
to their old format for ``English``, mostly filled with music rather
than much if anything about current events in Spain or anywhere (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, June 2 at 1615, WLCR via WBCQ-6 is on in English, but
poor signal, this hour registered as only 250 kW at 300 degrees to
western and central Canada --- if on 15105! AFAIK, WBCQ-6 SuperStation
has never attained any frequency but 9330, despite
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A20&broadc=BCQ'
for 6195, 13590, 15105, 12080, at various times besides 9330.

AW has now twitted about 9330 resuming:
``Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ 22m[inutes ago at 1505 UT June 2]
The BIG one back on the air. Replaced the screen bypass capacitor
(again). Hopefully it will hold. Tune 9330khz for WLC programming.
Today at 3pm tune in 7490khz for good tunes and commentary. 3265khz
evenings at 9pm for more. All for you on the BCQ. A&A in front of the
PA [caption].``

He still doesn`t say *what* programming is on 3265, inaudible in OK,
but here`s a report to the WOR iog:

``WBCQ, Monticello, Maine, 3265, May 28, 0455, EE with re-broadcast of
WHVW, 950 AM, Hyde Park, New York programming with continuous eclectic
mix of older jazz/big band tunes. ID at 0412 "950 On Your Radio,
WHVW", more music, this time older R&B, then off at 0413 in mid-song.
No WBCQ ID heard; 34233 (JRC NRD 535D; antenna 28m longwire with 9:1
Unun) (Robert Butterfield, Columbia, MD, USA)``

WHVW, 500/57 watts U1, is the station of Pirate Joe = J. P. Ferraro,
AW`s longtime cohort, not the only case such programming has filled
time on WBCQs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1520, June 2 at 0605 UT, KOKC OKC with equal level QRM, soon
recognized as the KYND Cypress TX barker-for-business loop, despite
being a 25 kW DAYTIMER. This has been going on for over a year, at
least sporadically. Where`s the FCC? KOKC must not even care to
complain, as it does not care either to resume its licensed full power
of 50 kW. Who cares about ``clear channel 1520``, with a translator on
95.3?

1540-, same time, a LAH here no doubt the off-frequency Houston-market
neighbor KGBC Galveston TX; ditto, FCC.

1560, not hearing Vietnamese from usually dominant KGOW Bellaire TX;
something changed there? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1370, June 2 at 0559 UT, I strain to make out a station
slightly atop the graveyard-like jumble, and can almost imagine an ID
as KGNO, and mention of FM 103.something? That Dodge City KS station
cannot be heard on 5 kW ND day power as it used to be, at least at
SR/SS, but night power, if any, probably running 24h is 230 watts. NRC
AM Log does not show any FM for it, nor does own token website:
https://www.swksradio.com/kgno-1370-am/
The Log does show a possible 1370 with FM 103.5, KAWL York NE with 176
ND watts night on 1370 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. The local noise blobs are still rampant, checked June 2
at 0536-, typically ~20 kHz wide, and now I see a pattern, at
intervals of ~360 kHz apart: starting with 9850-9870 at S7-S8; then:
9490-9510, 9130-9150, 8770-8790, 8410-8430, 8055-8070, 7697-7717,
7340-7355, circa 6993 weak.

At 1328 June 2, I find some higher ones at different intervals:
11215-11300, 10905-10945, 10690-10720, 10560-10580, 10200-10225,
9830-9855. At 1418, even higher, 11630-11655 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
