Glenn Hauser logs December 30-31, 2021  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 31 2021

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 30 at 0729, RHC English still on here and
nofrequency else, except JBA carrier on 12000; S9+10/20 but
undermodulated on 6000 which is normally off a sesquihour earlier.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Dec 30 at 1539, RHC only a trace of modulation, while
`Sonido Cubano` music show is well audible on // 15140, 13700, 11760,
9710. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [and non]. 7445, Dec 30 at 0726, quite a mess collision at
about equal levels from NHK direct in Japanese, and KBS World Radio in
Korean via UK. You`d think these neighbors could get along better; or
did the agree to ``share``? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391 MCW kHz, Dec 30 at 0739 UT, DDP, ND beacon at San
Juan / Dorado, is JBA, with occasional storm crashes from AL/GA. I
think I have discovered how to hear DDP: Post an item a few days
before about it *not* being heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28300 CW, Dec 30 at 1911, K6FRC/B beacon again from CA, some
sporadic E not reaching FM band. The WJ5O list, which is
historical as well as current, shows two other K6FRCs on 28300, but
not with the exact call I copy with the /B.

28286.5 CW, Dec 30 at 1913, WB0BIN, beacon with calls fast and slow
alternating. Often heard before rather than hundreds of others listed
by WJ5O:
``28.2865 WBØBIN C SABIN, MINNESOTA # 7W, GP VERTICAL New 22 Apr 18``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2119 monitoring: confirmed UT

WOR 2119 confirmed UT Fri Dec 31 at 0130 on WRWI 7780, S9/+10 but
noisy direct, likewise at Virginia SDR; better S9+10 and not noisy
into Maine SDR. BUT 5850 is OFF the air! Not heard direct or at
remotes. It is back on by 0159 when WOR is over, maybe a bit earlier
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Dec 30 at 0727, S9/+10 of dead air or trace of
modulation; in Hindi, Chinese, or English? from WRNO (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. 12050, Dec 30 at 1540, NO signal from WEWN
Spanish. If it stay off, clearing channel for Ndarason at 19-21, which
per EiBi follows this convoluted site switcheroo schedule:

12050 1900-1930 Mo-Sa TCD Radio Ndarason Int. KNU WAf /ASC
12050 1900-1930 Su TCD Radio Ndarason Int. KNU WAf /UAE
12050 1930-2000 TCD Radio Ndarason Int. KNU WAf /UAE
12050 2000-2030 Sa-Th TCD Radio Ndarason Int. KNU WAf /ASC
12050 2000-2030 Fr TCD Radio Ndarason Int. KNU WAf /UAE
12050 2030-2100 TCD Radio Ndarason Int. KNU WAf /ASC

WEWN, RCM, is still off at 1748 check. Probably due to Blitz over
central Alabama, Georgia:

Shux; 1902 check, WEWN back on 12050, no Ndarason. 15610 English also
started, Es boost so can hear the squeal. Apparently live show
commenting on ``insane weather`` B`ham are having, T-storms this
morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7730, UT Fri Dec 31 at 0035 tune-in, lots of clips some in
English and the great music of the defunct Radio Sweden, which left SW
in 2010 -- it`s the topic of `La Rosa de Tokio` on WRMI this week,
presumably with some further repeats (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 5040, Dec 30 at 0725, JBA carrier presumably RV, with Cuba
off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Thursday, December 30 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Dec 29 at 1419 tune-in via Brasil SDR,
LRA36 is active again this summer Wednesday, only S6-S7 with songs.
1428 M&W discussing something, probably Argentine; 1430 full ID as
``LRA36, R Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel``; music. 1440 different ID
as ``Nacional Antárdida Argentina, en todo el país, la radio
pública``, more music; 1450 fading down to JBA music, but still on
past 1459, 1507, 1512; 1515 long ID; 1528 sign-off announcement,
Antártida themesong heard for first time today until 1532* when
carrier is also off. O, for the good old days when I could pull it in
direct over a mostly-water path; one more check at 1454: no. Power was
then probably 10 kW rather than below 1 kW now (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** BRAZIL. 9666.468, Dec 29 at 0311, RVM is one of better 31m signals
except Cuba, while Americans are almost gone. Upcreepward continues,
my last previous measurement 9666.388, Dec 26 at 0711, i.e. 68 hours
ago and 80 Hz apart, or average of 1.18 Hz/hour or 28.2 Hz/day, so
clearly not the same rate as intervals before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 257 MCW kHz, Dec 29 at 0706 UT, dash and XE, 100 watt ND
beacon at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. No sign of the USonians normally
heard on 257, JYR in Nebraska or FWC in Illinois. Had logged XE only
twice before on Dec 25, 2020 and Feb 17, 2021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Dec 29 at 0316, RHC Spanish, suptorted S9+10/20,
instead of 9710; and no 9700 English either; weaker // 9535.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 29 at 0723, S9+10 of humbuzz only from this sole
RHC transmitter still on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.6, Dec 29 at 2202 quick check direct, R. Cairo at S8/S9
but extremely suptorted, unreadable, presumably English. Same old
story. Why in the world don`t they either fix it or turn it off again?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 15269.904, Dec 29 at 1455 weak talk perceptibly
off-frequency before measuring until 1459*. Aoki shows this hour only
is VOA Kurdish via Biblis. So much for German precision? Or USAGM;
other sites imprecise São Tomé, Saipan/Tinian, Thailand (Glenn Hauser,

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Dec 29 at 2300, REE token English preview of
feature to be about Magritte: but same was said Mon Dec 27 which I
took to be a repeat and also tuned out, so another repeat of repeat?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [and non]. I try to catch `BBC World News America`, the 2200 UT
edition which is delayed one hour on PBS via OETA to 2300; for a
broader worldview than on US nets. But currently nix the America part
as staff are on holiday and it originates with unknown anchors in
London. Dec 29 they were standing by for a G. Maxwell verdict, and
when it came about 2310 blew away the rest of the world for this
BREAKING NEWS, anchor and NYC correspondent winging it repetitively
for the rest of the semihour. Another annoyance recently is stepping
up of the percussion liners every few minutes, as if the real news
need to be hyped in that way. Of course other nets do some of that but
not to such an extent. At least today the B.N. overcame a lot of it
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2118 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday December
28 at 2330 on WRMI 9955: at Maryland remote, tuned in at 2328 to end
of `Wavescan` at S9, but drastic fadedown into noise/jamming by 2330!
Sundown+ MUF plunge if not a brownout got us. At 2333 I change to
further and wester SDR in Missouri, where we`re VG S9+10/20, no
jamming audible. But by 2354 it`s faded down to S6-S9. 2355, another
change to SDR further and norther, Winnipeg: slightly better S7-S9,
and can tell not cut off or overlapped at 2359 conclusion.

As usual zzzed the Wed 1030 on WRMI 5850; hope someone heard it.

Confirmed Wednesday December 29 from 2200:21 on WBCQ 7489.96v, S9+20
direct vs high local line noise level. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 9975, Dec 29 at 0319, KVOH is indeed back on air but JBA as
domestic MUF has plunged. Even 9330 WLCR/WBCQ at 0318 is a JBA
carrier. 500 kW doesn`t do you any good if you insist on sending above
the current MUF. 31m WRMIs also JBA. Cuba and Brasil, qq.vv., still
much better (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 6114, Dec 29 at 0724, no RTTY INTRUDER any
more now or any other time at various chex; gone by the time WWCR
reactivated 6115 in the 22-02 span, tho doubt that had anything to do
with it. Now Nikkei Japan 6115 is in the clear with music (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. Radio Emma Toc World Service: I watched and listened to the
much-publicized live webcast, Dec 28 at 1600-1720 UT, via
Jim = James Salmon says it`s a test but he certainly seems to have it
together. No problem for him to keep talking constantly, acknowledging
live contacts; plays some short audiovideos he`s edited down including
two made at WRMI, including revelation of the ``Jesus Stick``. And
entire thing will be available for playback. He was really on SW WRMI
earlier this year and maybe shall be again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. I`m waiting and waiting for some winter sporadic E to reach
the FM band. DXMAP often shows MUFs circa 72 MHz, but that`s not
enough. Finally I settle for something inferior, seeking 28+ MHz ham
beacons on 10 meters. December 28 at 2020, 2026 I detect only two:

28214.2 CW, W6REK/B calls alternating slow sequences and fast ones.
Maybe really the frequency listed at https://www.qsl.net/wj5o/bcn.htm
requiring multiple passes to copy, new log here, and nearby in CA:

28300.0 CW, K6FRC/B, stronger and easy copy, also the one on 13565 but
it`s in Patterson; all three near the Bay Area, limited opening:
``28.300 K6FRC C TRACY, CALIFORNIA # 100W, "POGO stick" VERTICAL Freq
change 8 July 09``. Recheck at 2046: all gone. At first I also tuned
up 28 MHz but did not hear any phone signals; nor on 25- MHz band nor
on 21+ MHz band but see WRMI 13m log. There was some skip activity on
the 27 MHz CBand (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2118 monitoring, next:
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 3215, Dec 26 at 2328, S9/+25 of dead air from WWRB; not to
be outdone by CUBA, some modulation missing at Manchester (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9960, Dec 28 at 0742, enough TOMBS audio here to match it to
S9+20 WRMI 9955, confirming this as a spur of that; and no doubt the
matching one on 9950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21525, Dec 28 at 2032, WRMI is S9+25 instead of usual JBA,
so sporadic E certainly in play here. Unfortunately nothing but gospel
huxters here including the notorious and dead Tony Alámo tnx to
``Radio Africa``, not even any DX programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Dec 28 at 2034 check, NO signal from WLCR/WBCQ,
crashed again. Neighbour 9265 WINB achieves S9+15 with 1/10 the
nominal power (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, Dec 28 at 0741, KVOH not heard, but would have signed
off by now. Re my earlier zero signal at 0309, I later asked Ray
Robinson at 0425: ``Hi Ray, Zero signal on 9975 tonight. Wonder if
KVOH is off the air or propagation? Holiday break? 73, Glenn``

Reply at 0637 I did not see till later: ``Re: No 9975 --
Weather-related outage. Storm damage caused a short in the high
voltage power supply.`` And at 0648: ``Hi, Glenn. We're actually back
on again now (0645 UTC). Ray`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, December 28 at 2044 UT, KLEY Wellington KS, still
strong steady signal of rock music dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9700, Dec 27 at 0650, RHC English, music mixing
about equal level with TRT Turkish, making a fast SAH, nearing end of
a 3-hour collision when RHC leaps to here instead of 6165, where there
are also collisions, with NHK. Something`s always wrong at RHC. I
won`t say ``awry at Ankara`` since VOT is duly registered here, but if
they were really on the ball would avoid Cuba whether official or not
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13636 & 13764 approx., Dec 27 at 1603, S9 FMish extremely
distorted spurblobs, with F# tone and some program modulation, out of
13700 RHC which is S9+10 but itself undermodulated; just in time as
all cut off late at 1604.5*. No time to seek second-orders at 2 x 64
kHz further out. Something`s always wrong at RHC; but it`s been a
while since these have upshown (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Dec 28 at 0315, RHC English here not 6165, only S5-S7
during Chief Meterologist slot. The other side:

``CORRUPTION --- The campaign against GAESA hotels is not anti-Cuban
Prime Minister Manuel Marrero grumbles about the losses from the
campaign to boycott tourism to Cuba.
Juan Antonio Blanco, Miami 24 Dic 2021 - 17:19 CET

On December 17 Prime Minister Manuel Marrero condemned "a media
campaign against tourism in Cuba," in reference to the call to boycott
tourist trips to the island, but his whining about how the losses that
this campaign inflicts on "Cuba" and the "Cuban tourism industry"
constitutes a botched charade. What is Manuel Marrero's role as Prime
Minister? ...``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.598v, Dec 27 at 2123, S9+20/30 of dead air in English
into UTwente, and way off-frequency from 9900, R. Cairo still wasting
its kW by failing to feed from studio to transmitter - weakest link
syndrome. At 2200 however I do detect a trace of timesignal a few
seconds late. Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** PUERTO RICO. 391 MCW kHz, numerous beacon bandscans last 5+ weeks
have not found any signal from San Juan / Dorado, DDP, allegedly 2 or
even 3 kW, since I did log it once on November 16. It used to be
regular last winter. But RNA shows it last logged by someone on
2021-12-25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, Dec 28, WOR)

** TAIWAN. 9690, Mon Dec 27 at 1612, poor signal in Japanese, not //
12030 where REE Spain is strong off the back from ME beam. It`s
clandestine Furusato no Kaze from Japan via 300 kW, 2 degrees from
Paochung for Korea North, daily at 1600-1630 -- certainly enough to
QRM the weak REE signal when it starts at 1500 weekends, but not until
1900 weekdays, the so-called North American service. Also, CGTN
Bengali via Kunming is on 9690 at 1500-1600. Standard remark about REE
frequency mismanagement (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9700: see CUBA [and non]

** U S A. 9975, Dec 28 at 0309, zero signal from KVOH, off the air,
holiday break? Or is it propagation. WRMIs and other USignals on 9 MHz
band are JBA at best, even 9330, but WRMI still VG on 7570. Amazingly
there are no KiwiSDRs in the Los Ángeles area to confirm it on
groundwave; the nearest is San Diego where would not expect to hear it
anyway, and I do not at 0354 check. WWV also JBA on 10000, but by
email as of 0300 says K index 2, SF 124, no storms, which ought to
mean sufficient conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Dec 27 at 1950 & 2046 UT chex, KLEY Wellington KS
once again has reverted to continuous air that is dead. In past has
also let this run all-night 24 hours obviously on 250 watt day power
rather than licensed one watt night. Tough luck, KWKH! Anyhow, the
electric bill must be negligible. Something`s always wrong at
Rockin`-M Media - based on a cattle brand logo (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 1690 kHz, Dec 27 at 2052 UT, talk station pausing for WVON
ID/promos, and fading down. Skywave already in play from Chicago into
the E-W longwire here and not much other X-band activity able to
overcome the high local noise level. Nothing even on 1700 and a little
KC/MO starting to show on 1660. CoL Berwyn IL which is 658 statute
miles = 1029 km away (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non?]. 9950, 9960, 9965, 9970, Dec 27 at 0652, JBA
carriers on all of these while TOMBS on WRMI is very strong on 9955,
splashing at least upon 9950. What could these be? Both EiBi and Aoki
have nothing on any except 9970 CNR1 jamming and Sound of Hope! The
always incomplete and misleading HFCC shows `HBN` PALAU on 9965, 24
hours, but we know that`s merely available, their true usage much less
than that but possibly changed to include this time and day? BTW, HFCC
attributes 9965 to ``Republic of Palau`` rather than that ministry in
West Virginia which now owns & runs it. I suspect 9950 & 9960 most
likely be 5 kHz parasitic spurs out of WRMI 9955, just like they
constantly produce on 4975 from the 4980 transmitter, and now an even
weaker one also detectable on 4985 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
