Logs
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey near sunset here, Nov 8 at 2308: 7540 &
7470 in Chinese, both against RFA in Tibetan this hour only, via
Kuwait and Tajikistan, respectively.

Nov 8 from 2325, WOOB survey between 12 and 14 MHz only finds CNR1
jammers: 12190 & 12230 S3-S4, the rest JBA/carriers: 12500, 12550,
12870, 13070, 13160, 13920 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7430, Nov 8 at 2309, S9 Khmer mentioning Boris Johnson. It`s
CRI via Nanning site; need LSB to avoid 7435 R Marti and jamming
splash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7220, Nov 8 at 2311, Vietnamese talk with music CCI,
S9+15/20, CRI scheduled via Xianyang site --- o, it`s not QRM but
voice-over, geez, briefly music only; but when talk resume I can still
detect an understation, which would be Romania in English (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Nov 8 at 2323, RHC is S5-S8 and distorted about a
pintor, music. Can`t even properly present its #1 legacy frequency.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauer, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5990, Nov 8 at 2317, CRI relay music but modulation
is cutting off and on, and when on, it`s distorted. This hour is
supposed to be in English, but I check 13650 and hear exactly the same
music and cutouts synchronized in the ``Portuguese`` service, so both
getting the same defective feed from Beijing. At 2319 I also hear the
same music on 6100 but not cutting out, i.e. CRI ``Portuguese`` hour
direct from Beijing site. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba too
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNIDENTIFIED, 6934.9-AM, Nov 8 at 2313, JBA carrier,
smax of a pirate but none reported in HFU circa 6935 now; and no
others on the band altho three hours earlier, Chris Gay in KY was
getting three.

6885-AM, Nov 8 at 2316, S8 open carrier, could also be a pirate but
none reported; marred by regular pops like an electric fence but only
ranging 6873-6894 or so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. 5980, Nov 8 at 2316, not even a JBA carrier from R.
Chaski, despite no significant Cuban jamming either now that Radio
Martí has B-moved to 6125. I am hoping to detect it again this season,
but is it even active? Claudio Galaz in Chile used to log it but have
not seen anything from him since July. Current Aoki shows Chaski,
Urubamba, at 1000-1500 & 2200-0103, but like so much LA info there,
may be long outdated. WRTH 2020 almost agreed, 2200-0100 from OBX4M, 5
kW. When last hearing it a few years ago, it was closing earlier,
circa 0000? With its timer slipping a few seconds each night. Need to
check more, and also via remotes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Nov 8 at 2320, Turkish music is VG S9+25 on
VOT English to us; while its ex-frequency 9830 is now occupied by a
weak CNR1 non-jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday November 9 at 0051, the 0030 on WRMI 7730, good.

Also confirmed Nov 9 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9+10 into UTwente SDR.

Also confirmed Nov 9 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, S9+5/15 to UTwente; and
5800, S8/S9+10 into Bonaire SDR; also on WRN webcast.

Not confirmed UT Mon Nov 9 from 0401.5 on Area 51 webcast, rather last
week`s 2058 is playing again; some problem getting 2059? WBCQ 6159.9v
is JBA or absent at various remotes, noisy S8 into Virginia, and JBA
here. At *0430, adjacent 6155 ACI from NHK English via Austria, 300 kW
non-direxional for Europe, but plenty strong over here, UT M-F only.

WOR 2059 also confirmed UT Mon Nov 9 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, JBA into
Bonaire, slightly better S4-S6 VP into Pardinho, Brasil SDR. Next:

1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [new? unconfirmed]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5050, Nov 9 at 0115, WWRB is still here with gospel huxter
in limited weekend-only sked, despite B20. HFCC shows it could be on
any of: 3185, 3195, 3215 or 5050 but normally in winter it`s on 90m
only, at first 3215, then switching at 0200 to one of the others,
clearing out 3215 for WWCR-1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7501.3-USB, Nov 8 at 2307, JBA 2-way in Spanish (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11709.9, Nov 8 at 2323, JBA talk from something
off-frequency, unlikely to be CNR1, the only listee at this hour
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** CANADA. 351-MCW kHz, Nov 8 at 0743 UT, dash and YKQ, 500-watt ND
beacon at Fort Rupert - Waskaganish, Québec, which is on an inlet at
the very southern end of James Bay, near the Ontario border. No
problem separating from 350 RG at WRWA OKC.

346-MCW kHz, Nov 8 at 0744 UT, dash and YXL, 500-watt NDB at Sioux
Lookout, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday November 8 at 0816, I am unfortunately not fully
asleep so check for weekly RHC Esperanto, confirmed in progress here
and nowhere else on 49m. Ex-0700 UT during DST. Next broadcast ex-1500
during DST is now from 1602 on 11760 and 15140, as 13700 has just
turned off. Opening gives schedule, on 6100 but missed copying the
alleged time; 1600 on 11760-only; 2230 on 15730 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sun Nov 8 at 1439, `En Contacto` has already started
on RHC: not a word from ailing Arnie to be heard, as Marta Ríos reads
his script about solar activity, including mailbag acknowledgements,
one from February 2020 --- so an old show? One other voice is the AER
guy with monthly DX report from Spain, which is about only 3 stations:
V of Mongolia, R Clube do Pará, and RAE on 5800, failing to mention
that`s a detested WRMI relay; and as always laboriously spelling out
p-mail contact addresses. // frequencies on now include 11760, 13740 &
13700 lacking spurs, 15230 suptorted. Something`s always wrong at
RHC.

For fun, I check the RHC website for B-20 frequency schedule:
http://www.radiohc.cu/de-interes/frecuencias
Would you believe this is still dated Abril 2016-Noviembre 2016?!?!
Something`s very wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: Also confirmed, UT Sunday
Nov 8 at 0433 about 10 minutes into, on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville
MO, so started circa 0423, S9+20 direct. Next:

0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE
0400vUT Monday WBCQ 6160v Area 61 to WSW
0430 UT Monday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 1150, Nov 8 at 0736 UT, besides KSAL Salina KS, I am hearing
Sousa march music, must be the scheduled DX test from KSEN Shelby,
Montana. Yes, 0737 very slow Morse Code MCW IDs: VVV DE KSEN, with
call repeated so many times I lose count. 0739 sweep tones; 0740 I
switch from the DX-398 with internal antenna only somewhat nulling
KSAL, to the R75 with E-W longwire where KSAL is more solid, but still
hearing underneath, KSEN now with continuous tone. 0742,
phone-off-the-hook pulse sounds. So that`s it. As I said, unheard 24
hours earlier, and it turns out that test was deficient at low power.
Tonight it`s widely heard from coast to coast at least. Shelby is near
Cut Bank, on I-15, only some 35 miles south of Alberta (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9669.850, Nov 7 at 1946, JBA music from Channel 292, needs
LSB tuning to avoid splash from much stronger 9675 music, Turkish from
Sa`udi Arabia. I`m checking it direct only to here. Has been testing
with new rotatable hi-gain antenna with 10 kW. Website has detailed
skedgrid for 9670 and other frequency programming, but nothing
specific here and now. It`s so small that it`s hard to make out the
programs, and low-res so zooming it up makes the blurs larger,
revealing that most of the 24/7 hours are not yet booked in English
and German. The azimuths to around here are 248-293-338, i.e. 45
degrees apart. Can there be any setting between, or only in these 8
steps? Rohrbach is in SE Germany west of Austria, and my NGS globe
shows the direxion to Enid is: 308 degrees so we are 15-30 degrees
split between. Others have reported same frequency offset within a
couple Hz. Seems a little weaker after 2000, maybe beam change.

Texas Radio Shortwave planned test to NAm via Channel 292 on 9670v,
UT Sun Nov 8 at 0300-0400. At 0253 I start listening via TWR Raleigh
NC SDR: some VP music averaging S3; at UTwente S6-S7 but not enough.
After 0300 I cannot recognize it as TRSW for sure; still same at
Raleigh and UTwente. Nothing here in OK, nor to noisy Maine SDR. Just
heard QSL announcement at 0315-0316. Brasil 9665- is much stronger
everywhere. Clearly WRMI is preferable for TRSW to here, as tried on
5800, 24 hours earlier, which I reported and QSLed (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [non]. 13590.059, Nov 7 at 1936, fair S7-S9 in Amerenglish,
off-frequency, VOA? Yes, scheduled this hour only via Pinheira, SÃO
TOMÉ, now well-known for its frequency-imprecision. Another VOA
service is on ``13590``, Ashna Radio at 13-14 via UAE site, likely
with a different offset. In between, others via Lampertheim, Kuwait
likely closer to 13590.00 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November
7 from 2033.7 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+10 steady local
quality signal into nearby Warrenton MO KiwiSDR. Back at 2026, Amateur
Radio Newsline was ending, then Vern spent a few minutes about
scheduling of St Louis-area repeater nets.

Also confirmed Sat Nov 7 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VP here but definitely.
This relatively new airing has disappeared from the WRMI skedgrid,
replaced by something else, so I removed it from my WORsked --- but
checking it anyway, there I am.

Also confirmed, UT Sunday Nov 8 at 0433 about 10 minutes into, so
started circa 0423, S9+20 direct. Next:
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE
0400vUT Monday WBCQ 6160v Area 61 to WSW

** U S A. 17775-, Nov 7 at 2013, KVOH is still on at S9+30 but dead
air; by 2020 modulation has resumed in talk. DST sked showed
Saturday-only English closing SW at 2000 UT, so I guess it`s now 2100*
altho final hour was supposed to be `Music in the Afternoon` (Glenn

GERMANY BAVARIA ch292
I guess today Nov 11 at 10.15 UT use the older TX reserve unit,
9670.0 even kHz exact,
but in western Europe only -106dBm or S=3 signal
during our winter season. Need at least 2500 km distance hop.
