Logs
** BRAZIL. 9666.012v, Feb 19 at 2310, Voz Missionária S6-S8 with song
presumably praiseworthy and then at 2313, ID in English! Claiming
frequencies are 9665, 5940 and 11750 from RVM Radio. Tnx for the
English, but they are woefully misinformed: NEVER on 9665 exactly nor
5940 --- It`s always off-minus, but now a JBA carrier in huge BS
splash from 5935 WWCR. And hasn`t been on 11750 for YEARS. It was
already deleted from WRTH 2018, maybe earlier. 11750 now occupied only
by RHC 11760 splash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Feb 19 at 1921, RHC is S9 of dead air. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9535, Feb 19 at 2323, RHC is S9 of dead air; while 9640 is
OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185.703V, Feb 19 at 0433, XEPPM is S9+10/20 and just
barely modulated; someone had reported no modulation at all, which it
might as well be, totally useless (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 960, Feb 9 at 1900 UT, quick ToH ID from KGWA Enid,
putting insignificant 100.9 translator first, and ``from the
Ladusau-Evans studios`` --- what?? KGWA has sold naming rights of
their studio to a local mortuary --- either that or they have axually
moved into the funeral home. How apropos, just in time for deadbeat
Fox ``News`` and Rush. BTW someone from Williams Broadcasting is
presenting a CCTV seminar February 21 at 1930-2030 UT in the campus
building of NWOSU Enid on entrepreneurship (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. ``Brad, Something very strange last night on 90.1, for at
least half an hour before and after 1 a.m. --- Brazilian popular
music, no announcements (tho I may have missed something at top of
hour), nice but certainly not classical WCPE --- was KUCO plugged into
a wrong satellite feed? Back to classical when I awoke briefly and
checked at 5:45. Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid``

That`s about KUCO, 0700 and 1145 UT Feb 19; asking manager Brad
Ferguson about it, he replies:

``Hi Glenn, WCPE went into their emergency log last night, so
something failed somewhere in their chain. We have an emergency log
too, but it's classical. Go figure! BF``

Strange. This shows nothing out of ordinary around 2 am ET:
https://theclassicalstation.org/playing_wed.shtml
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 19 at 2319 and 2348 chex, another night with NO
signal from VOT English to us. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 417 kHz, Feb 19 at 0728 UT, ND beacon copied several times
as ``dit-dit, dit-dit-dah-dah``. That second one is not a letter in
our alfabet, but in the Russian as that ``yu`` letter looking like a
conjoined IO. Looking at the dxinfocenter and classaxe references on
417 and vicinity, I think it must be 25-watt IY in Charles City, Iowa,
which I have copied several times before, but now miskeyed just one
dah off from Y, which is dah-dit-dah-dah (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 420 kHz, Feb 19 at 0730, ND beacons FQ and PK mixing; and
when tuned to 418-USB I hear only FQ. Both 25 watts, FQ is in
Fairmont, Minnesota, and PK is Olathe - Herbb, Kansas. BTW, I don`t
try to report signal strength of NDBs as they are almost always JBA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5332-CW, Feb 19 at 0436, CQ DE KI5AL K with several
repetitions, seems slowly hand-keyed, easy copy. I never can remember
the exact discrete frequencies forming the so-called ``60 meter``
hamband, but this must be one of them. ARRL.org shows

Jett, Herbert A, KI5AL, Seguin, TX 78155. And his profile at
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/ki5al
shows he is 74, a ham less than a year and only started CW a few
months ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13852.062, Feb 19 at 1502, JBA spur from something, can it
be RHC? NO, I barely make a match with Radio Martí audio on 13820,
which is VG and well above the jamming. However there is a bit of
jamming splat out to here. This is nothing like the RHC spurs which
are huge distorted blobs --- not today! --- but rather a very weak
signal with OK modulation. OCB Grimesland is showing Bauta how to make
spurs!

Then I go looking for more and sure do find them: this one is 32.062
kHz plus 13820, so how about minus? There it is: 13787.942 measured
independently which would be minus 32.058 kHz, close enough. These are
axually second order, since I then find plus and minus ~16 kHz, and
multiples of that, not measured precisely: 13836, 13868, 13884, 13900;
and 13804, 13772, 13756, 13740. At 1552 I do measure one of them:;
13836.026.

13852 etc., Feb 19 at 1920 recheck, JBA spur carriers still detectable
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2021 monitoring: couldn`t check Wed
Feb 19 at 2100 on WRMI 7780 or 2200 on WBCQ 7490v; anybody hear
them?

Confirmed UT Thu Feb 20 at 0100 on WRMI 7780 -- only poor via UTwente
SDR.

WOR 2022 should be ready by early UT Feb 21:
http://www.worldofradio.com/audiomid.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Feb 19 at 1913, poor signal from SMTV via WRMI, only
once, no echo, during list of languages utilized. 5800 not echoing
either circa 2320 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11644.2-USB, Feb 19 at 1620, weak 2-way in colloquial
Spanish, INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

CUBA that offset minus 800 Hertz TX unit originate from former USSR
relay
of Radio Moscow at Bejucal site of RadioCuba.
It's in turn use from time to time.

At other time of the day used as
1200-1500 7340 BEJ 50kW 110 Ant Spanish Antilles ex 9640 kHz
or
1200-1500 13740 BEJ 50kW 160 SoAm Spanish Buenos Aires ex13780 kHz B-18

Maybe an alternative TX unit of few remained 50 kW type TXs at this site.
See below also Ivo's monitoring of clandestine spy number services.

Technical data
15370 kHz 135degrees azimuth. #A-27-antenna in nomenclatura figures,
HRS 4/4/1 type, aimed at Rio de Janeiro Brazil, Buenos Aires Argentina in
South America, I guess 23.30-01.30 UT is right their scheduled time.

** CUBA. 15369.22, Feb 16 at 2248, RHC Spanish distorted at S9+20.
Altho not checked yesterday, this should make the sixth day in a row
of such off frequenciness. Something's always wrong at RHC.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9329.237, Feb 17 at 0715, Spy number station bigsig is way
off-frequency (and WBCQ apparently finished testing at 0500). Note how
closely its offset matches that of 15370-minus RHC as heard now for
seven days in the afternoons; same transmitter? Something's always
wrong at RadioCuba.


Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, also caught the offset: "NUMBERS STATION Cuban

this also infect many other HM01 broadcasts?

Logs
** ALGERIA [and non]. My cardio tunes only in 10-kHz steps, so no
serious TA/TP DXing, but certain frequencies suffer 1-kHz hets, from
obvious sources, Feb 18 at 0045 UT: 530, 550, 890: Algeria on 531,
549, 891; and 1000: from 999 likely Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 388-MCW kHz, Feb 18 at 0730 UT, dash and MM, 500-watt ND
Beacon at Fort McMurray, Alberta. It`s a surprisingly large town, so
far into the sub-Arctic northeast outback, over 66K population; due to
the oil boom, but on the decline since a fire. 2475 km from here =
1538 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.2, Feb 18 at 2307, JBA carrier, day 8 for RHC
off-frequency, but bad propagation; MUF must be about 13 MHz, as 13740
is also JBA carrier, yet undermodulated 11850 and distorted 11760 and
Portuguese 11700 are at normal biglevels. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, Feb 18 at 0711, Roboyl with marine weather
in English, too weak vs noise level, once again before any are
scheduled on the CCG site, VCP Placentia via St. Lawrence not until
*0737 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Monday afternoon Feb 17 at 1930-1940 UT, while
finding nothing interesting on parked caradio MW bandscan, I decide to
check how many stations are overtly anti-American, broadcasting that
despicable hate-monger and stupid cigar-smoker Rush Limbaugh; no IDs
but I will add obvious connexions: 710-KGNC, 740-KRMG, 820-WBAP,
960-KGWA, 1000-KTOK, 1030-KBUF or KFAY JBA, 1150-KSAL, 1230-WBBZ,
1290-KWFS, 1330-KNSS. Only ten! Could be worse if he were on at night;
when C2CAM can be found all over the dial, seldom synchronized, plus
SW 6070 CFRX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 18 at 2351, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski vs
wall-of-noise Cuban jamming not against any Marti at this hour, until
autocutoff at 2352:40*, which is 10.5 seconds earlier than last check
5 days ago, Feb 13 until 2350.5*, i.e. averaging 2.1 seconds earlier
each night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 18 at 2301 and still 2344, no signal from VOT
English to us; something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 7290-LSB, Feb 18 at 1940, the ``72-90 Traffic
Net`` based in TX but also check-ins from OK; vs a constant AM carrier
but too weak to copy even on USB-only, presumably IRRS via Saftica,
Romania; which via UTwente is inboooming with `Wavescan` Tuesday at
1930, like WOR Mondays at 1901 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Feb 17 at 1933, SMTV via WRMI, and SMTV via WRMI
echoing one second later, double-audio feed, which has happened
before; makes it even more unlistenable than usual --- obviously
nohuman at Okeechobee nor SMTV HQ is monitoring the final output
product. So why should we?

*Still* echoing a dodekahour later, Feb 18 at 0723 but now about 8
seconds delayed --- hard to track with all the self-QRM, at close to
same modulation level.

*Still* echoing exactly 24 hours after first noted, Feb 18 at 1934 on
15770, even harder to outfigure until 1943 I upbring a bettersig via
UTwente, about 18 seconds apart! Just as they are reciting their
extensive schedule mentioning 15770 to Africa(? not Europe?).

How can a worldwide multi-platform broadcast make itself so boring?
The basic ethos of animal rights and vegan diets should go over well
with the enlightened, but multi-lingual bits on no reliable pattern,
often heavily accented when in English, and cultish devotion to their
Supreme Master are major turn-offs. I can`t remember anyone ever
submitting a monitoring report of SMTV dealing with its content over
any significant span.

Kai Ludwig has pointed out this in Wikipedia: ``Apparently "religious
broadcasting worldwide" would be a subject worth professional research
again, after three decades have passed:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ching_Hai_(spiritual_leader)
Already a number of interesting-looking references in hobby research
on this Taiwan-based cult``

Believe it or not, SMTV is mentioned only once in passing on that
page, as if it`s an insignificant part of her empire. And there are 63
footnote reference linx, many in Chinese, not Vietnamese.

By 2034 Feb 18, I am on the caradio like 25 hours earlier, where I get
much better reception of 15770 aimed NE so off the side here to the
NW, on the 2-foot antenna, than on home rig with 100-foot longwire.
Now Radio Tirana English relay is loud and clear, no echo.

5800, before 2300 Feb 18, during music not obviously doublefeed, but
2300 talk is again echoing about one second later. However, by 2345
during interminable recitation of cable TV or DTV suchannel outlets,
state by state, no echo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 5040, Feb 18 at 0728, VP S5-S7 trace of talk, presumed R.
Vanuatu now that Cuba is off. Before 0630 it`s on 7260, so far
untraced here but bears surveillance (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
