** AUSTRALIA. 28445 USB, May 21 at 2214, VK4KX calling CQ10 -- only
signal found on otherwise `dead` band.
VK4KX Australia flag Australia
Bernard Terry
Po Box 357
Nambour, Queensland 4560
Nambour is on the ``Sunshine Coast`` just north of Brisbane. Lots of
info on his health, history, equipment, certificates at:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 7850 & 3330 RC USBs, May 22 at 0659, no signals from CHU,
apparently off due to storms; but time marches on (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 13680, May 22 at 2240, RHC Spanish S9/+20 on secret
frequency, still missing from EiBi but which has not been updated
since May 3; nor in Aoki as of May 21 which has made little effort to
include true current RHC listings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000 & 6060 & 6100 & 6165, UT Sunday May 22 at 0700, all RHC
frequencies are off so nowhere for Esperanto scheduled now.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185, May 22 at 0700, still no signal from R. Educación.
Stephen Luce, Houston TX, replied on the WOR iog: ``Glenn, I haven't
heard anything out of XEPPM for the past few days here in Houston at
various checks between 0300 and 0500 UT. Usually has a decent signal
though audio levels can be all over the place`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** RUSSIA. 78 kHz, re my report of Mayak heard via Izhevsk SDR,
shortly after posting that, another possibility occurred to me:
remnant of ``rediffusion`` wired ``broadcasting`` on LW. And then
multiply confirmed on the WOR iog:

``Also regarding the 78 kHz signal on the Russian SDR: I recall seeing
a similar report a few years ago, and it was said to be the SDR
picking up RF from an old Soviet era wired radio distribution system
that (amazingly) is still in operation. That same report also
mentioned a second signal on 120 kHz. Perhaps this is what you heard?
Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas``

``This is a traditional line transmitter/wire radio frequency in
Russia. So looks like this type of broadcasting is still on in some
73, Patrick Robic, Austria``

``Hi Glenn, That's easy: 78 kHz is the Mayak subcarrier in Russian
cable radio networks that still remain operational in some cities

Unfortunately the English Wikipedia article says nothing about such
networks in Russia. Russian article is much more extensive, and you
can also find some info on this matter in the Spanish one:


By the way, cable radio in my city is completely off since 2012, due
to economical non-efficiency. Best 73, Dmitry Mezin, Kazan, Russia``

``Cute! How convenient to find this SDR already tuned to 78 kHz. I
almost wonder why I so far did not have the idea to check if somewhere
Radiotochka bleed-out can still be detected.

By the way, word has it that in the GDR some wired radio systems (I
understand using frequencies above 150 kHz, for use with regular radio
sets) remained in operation into the 70s. But so far no citations are
available to back up this gossip.

And don't confuse two different things: "Cable radio" will nowadays in
a number of countries be understood as "FM radio via TV coax cable",
as introduced in the eighties. It's at present a nice voodoo doll for
those who want to "close down analogue radio", and then they are very
surprised when being told that this political gesture will just bring
the cable distribution of many radio stations to an end.
Kai Ludwig, Germany`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 17530.079, Sun May 22 at 1458, JBA carrier,
one of few sigs on band beyond 17855 Spain, measured just in time
before 1459*. VOA in Kinyarwanda/Kirundi scheduled Sat & Sun only
1400-1500, to be followed immediately by English daily via Botswana
but no sign of that, which per Aoki would be *jammed by the ChiCom
where too many subjects understand English. Something`s unsettled at
USAGM. I also have a JBA not off-frequency signal on 17580 continuing
past 1500 where Pinheira in Kin is also scheduled until 1500 only
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2139 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov

SDR Frostburg, MD in USA.


Confirmed Saturday May 21 at 1930 on WRMI 15770, S8/S9 into UTwente,

asked Jeff White what happened but no reply yet.

1930 Sat is nominal same start time for WOR on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
Wentzville MO, so I tune that in via nearby Warrenton remote, at 1933
finding it almost over, and finishing at 1937:50 so must have started
way early about 1909! S9+8 but heavy storm crashes.

Confirmed UT Sunday May 22 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S6/S7 into Durango
SDR but JBA vs storm crashes; better S7/S9 into Missouri; JBA direct
with HSNL.

Confirmed UT Sunday May 22 at 0345 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, at midpoint
so started circa 0331, S9+5/10 vs HSNL.

Confirmed UT Sunday May 22 ending at 1358 on WMRI Europe via Channel
292, Germany, 9670, and immediately into Russian with no ID, S6/S7
into NW Ireland SDR but good with low noise level; had been JBA into
too-close UTwente. Must have started at 1329. Next:

** U S A. 21525, May 21 at 2214, S5/S7 of dead air, as WRMI-7 Radio
Africa has not been turned off at 2100* as scheduled; with sporadic E
boost (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, May 22 at 0703, no signal from WRMI-5, supposed to run
24/7, this hour only with Fámily Radio in Spanish. Obviously off while
9395 is S9+20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12000, May 22 at 0712, 2-way in Spanish. These seem to
have an affinity for RHC frequencies in off-hours, cf recent 6000 log

CUBA 11880, May 20 at 2309, RHC is S6/S8 but JBM, in English? as
scheduled to Africa. Should be // 5040 but that`s JBA carrier in HNL

11950, Fri May 20 at 2309, RHC in Spanish is S8/S9+25 and even
modulating. Is this the alternate Mesa Redonda TV soundtrack?
Schedules show it not on Fridays

15730, May 20 at 2310, RHC S9+10 but suptorted, sounds like fraxured
French = Kriyòl = Creole as scheduled, toward S America, not Haïti

15230, May 20 at 2311, RHC averages S9 but JBM, should be Brazuguese?
No, Spanish, after 22-23 Portuguese, per EiBi

11880, May 21 at 0046, still on with dead air at S9+20. Supposed to
last 22-24 UT only, but previously ran way late into the night.
Somethings` always wrong at Radio Propaganda Cuba. The other side:

Something's rotten in Cuba … and it heralds more hunger
While the Government spends $ 1.5 billion building hotels, it slashes
food imports and investment in agriculture.
