Logs
** CHINA [non]. Re my unlisted 9300 log, from a huge exhaustive
all-band dekaday survey by Wolfgang Bueschel of ChiCom jamming:
``9299.959 0000-2359 TWN SOH Xi Wang Zhi Shen. Chinese Miaoli, S=9 at
00.40 UT on June 10.`` so it was SOH without jamming when he heard it
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Re my previous report about RHC, James Branum, OK, replies:

``Glenn, I think you are speaking about Elena Valverde. With regards
to English fluency, I have met Irma (from the Mailbag show) on my two
visits to RHC and can say she is extremely fluent in English. I hope
to someday meet the other on-air staff, but so far have only met her.

As to the issue of censorship... That is not how it works in Cuban
state media today. It is much more understated with an emphasis on
staying on message, presenting Cuba in a positive light, etc. This
approach is not far removed from what most state and corporate
broadcasters do. James Branum, KG5JST and RHC fan`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, June 11 at 0052, RHC S9+5 in Spanish and extremely

5040, June 11 at 0056, RHC in French is also extremely distorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND [non]. 9955, UT Thu June 11 at 0100, new WRMI relay of
RNZ as per updated sked at 0100-0130, with `Korero Pacifica`, as on
WRN to North America at this hour, about topic-V of course; but it`s
only 15 minutes followed by Vatican on WRN sked. So presumably not
live // 13840 RNZI direct, unchecked, with different Pacifican
programming scheduled for full hour. Heavy jamming before 0100 vs
Alameda Bible Fellowship in English now slowly abates. But what is the
point of onsending this to South America one day a week? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring: confirmed Wed June 10 from
2100:20 on WBCQ 7490v, JBA, unfortunately much worse than 24 hours
ago.

Also confirmed UT Thu June 11 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S3-S7 VP in noise
here, good at UTwente SDR.

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, June 10 at 1451, JBA carrier from LRA36,
another Wednesday-only broadcast over a mostly-water path from
Esperanza to Enid. Cleaning up brush after another windstorm, I don`t
get around to checking the Brazilian remotes this week (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13020, 11440, 10920, June 10 at 1453, the only CNR1 jammers
found in scan from 13.3 to 10.8 MHz, JBA music or worse (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, June 9 at 2054, S6-S7 open carrier of RHC: this is not
something wrong, but warming up for nominal tarde start at 2100 on
this and several others (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, June 10 at 0552, RHC English S9-S6 on 2 x 6100 much
stronger, the voice of Lena (?) Valverde --- one cannot imagine her
speaking extemporaneously like ``Ed Newman``, instead of stiltedly
reading a script once run by the censors. Maybe she`s not that
confident of her English fluency.

Searching the RHC website I get no hits on Valverde except for someone
else surnamed. The About-us page is no help either to acquaint us with
individual announcers, rather political reasons for RHC as an entity.

Since we often get such harmonix, this prompts me to compute possible
harmonix of other higher RHC frequencies which might show up by
sporadic E, especially now at season-peak. Here are all of them below
31.5 MHz, seconds, thirds, fourths; fifths and sixths for the lowest:

15730 = 31460
15370 = 30740
15230 = 30460
15140 = 30280
15120 = 30240
13740 = 27480
13700 = 27400
13650 = 27300
11950 = 23900
11880 = 23760
11800 = 23600
11760 = 23520
11700 = 23400
11670 = 23340
9790 = 29370, 19580
9640 = 28920, 19280
9580 = 28740, 19160
9570 = 28710, 19140
9535 = 28605, 19070
7380 = 29520, 22140, 14760
7350 = 29400, 22050, 14700
6145 = 30725, 24580, 18435, 12290
6100 = 30500, 24400, 18300, 12200*
6060 = 30300, 24240, 18180, 12120
6000 = 30000, 24000, 18000, 12000*
5990 = 29950, 23960, 17970, 11980*
5040 = 30240, 25200, 20160, 15120, 10080
5025 = 30150, 25125, 20100, 15075, 10050
4765 = 28590, 23825, 19060, 14295*, 9530*
* indicates those which have axually been monitored as I recall.

Of course, these are possible only when the fundamental be on the air.
Included are all currently active RHC and CRI relay frequencies,
Rebelde, Progreso, but not jammers, intermodulation or other spurs,
nor spy numbers which come from the same sites.

I`ve used a calculator to be sure all these be correct; more useful
would be to arrange them into a single frequency order, but that`s
enough for now. Perhaps someone else will do that? Of course, even
higher harmonix are quite possible in a strong sporadic E opening from
Cuba; an harmonic no more than 3X from 15730 would land on 47190
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13766 & 13634 approx., June 10 at 1337, RHC spurblobs out of
13700-AM, no readable mod. At 1354 I try for more, which are JBA circa
13569, 13831, with F# tone in AM which is also audible on S9+20 13700
but not on // unrelated 13740. However, at 1449 recheck 13700 still on
but no spurs audible. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

BTW, if you find that remark tiresome, don`t blame the messenger. If
RHC ever get its acts together, I shall happily stop saying it; DHYB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11650, my previous log of R. Tamazuj --- sounds
like ``Tamazuk`` --- mentioning their alleged English news segment Wed
& Sat at 0415-0425, served as a note-to-self to check it out at next
opportunity: I had MADAGASCAR well direct but Wed June 10 at 0412 for
convenience at the computer bring up UTwente instead, with a VG
signal, much better than // 7315 via France. Interview by OM with YL
on phone about Corona virus; the only English being when he says
``OK`` to start each reply. NO other English, keeps going in presumed
Juba Arabic (which does sound rather different than standard Arabic),
until 0422 music, 0427 elaborate sign-off; ending with mention of
sibling FPU station Radio Dabanga, which axually starts to sign-on,
before cut off the air at 0429.8*. Comes back on at *0431. There was
no need for a break as per HFCC exactly the same parameters apply to
both: 250 kW at 335 degrees, 15 slew, 159 antenna type. But where`s
the English, Ivo? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. 9800, June 9 at 2100* poor signal with a smidgen of music and
off. HFCC has it as Encompass via Woofferton in Arabic at 1800-2100
but we know it`s really World`s Last Chance Radio, having found 500 kW
from Maine insufficient, at least while stuck to 9330. Also registered
at 19-21 on 9800 is something NEW from Bulgaria in English; maybe a
standby siteswitch for same? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2037 monitoring; next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a
US bank to: Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

Next WOR 2038 should be ready by early UT Friday June 12 for first
WRMI broadcast at 2200 on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, June 9 at 2105, WBCQ in `AAAWWW` playback from June 6
as he`s talking about making their own ice cream; yes, listed as an
Available Time Slot. Better reception than I expect this early in the
summer; AW recently said he had beefed up power on the classic
transmitters; now fair S6-S9, let`s hope also for WOR 24 hours later
on Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, June 10 at 0144, WRNO is S9+10/20 of dead air; except
for some JBA beeping, QRM or self-inflicted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, June 9 at 2050, dead air except for squeal! from
WWCR-1; finally about 2050.5 starts `Unshackled` at very odd hour.
Maybe it`s the default filler for a failure? No, it`s scheduled for
2030 Tuesdays. Anyhow, noting an S9-S7 signal boost by sporadic E.
Despite these tipoffs, VHF Es openings MUF into the FM band continue
to elude me (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 10 at 0547, S6-S8 seems like Bislama from R
Vanuatu; 7890 with JBA carrier, harmonix from 3945, but no signal on x
4 = 15780; 0555 music, 0559 announcements mixed with music, maybe one
English word caught, ``o`clock``. It seems they are running 3945 +
multiples earlier and earlier, or all the time? Ron Howard listened to
11835 from 0445 June 8, and they were already on at 0255 June 9 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Local scratch-noise blobs have drifted up/down but still
at about 360 kHz intervals. Any idea what device would behave like
that? June 9 at 2100 finds them around 9700-9750 peaking 9725-9730;
9335-9400, 9370; 8975-9050, 9010 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
