** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey July 20 at 1424: 13020 S5-S8; 12880
S6-S7; 12835 --- yes, ending in -5 --- S6-S8, not in EiBi or Aoki;
12190 JBA vs CODAR; 13530 S4-S6 vs CODAR; 13870 S5-S8; 13960 JBA
carrier.

Now it`s 1430+: 14980 S5-S7; 14850 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Let`s try again on linx to the pirate QSLs: I gave
the wrong URL to my QSL page, should be:
http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html

From there you may click on the last two, #94 and #95. Direct link may
also appear broken; it`s asking for trouble to make an URL with blank
spaces in it:
http://www.w4uvh.net/TRSW – TCOTM eQSL – Hauser.jpg
so I have changed that to:
http://www.w4uvh.net/TRSW_TCOTM_eQSL_Hauser.jpg

Here are the complete items reworked:

6935-USB, pirate, Radio Nova sent eQSL without specific request,
having seen my report of it July 19 at 0100; thanks! Says 100 watts,
43-foot vertical antenna; colorful illustration of two terrifying
creatures costumed for some fiesta, #94 at:

** U S A. 14902-USB, July 20 at 1430, paramilitary net in English, no
doubt CAP as regular at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28254.5-CW, July 20 at 1505, VVV VVV DE K4JEE/B ---
WJ5O roster shows:
``28.2545 K4JEE C LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY # 5W, VERTICAL New 6 Nov 11``
Previously logged July 8 and 12 at later hours. Also now an unID W-
call around 28287 --- maybe WB0BIN, Sabin MN, logged a few times on
28286.5. Sporadic E MUF briefly exceeded 90 MHz, mostly below 80 or 70
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2043 monitoring: confirmed Monday
July 20 from 1800.5 on IRRS 7290 Bulgaria, on UTwente SDR Holland, VG
but with usual QRM, splash from Vietnam 7280 and Iran 7300, even with
~6 kHz bandwidth AMsync mode; and the RTTY warble always on 7291. Open
carrier before 1758; cut on unknown rock music a few sex before 1759;
quick IRRS ID just before 1800, and Feature Storry News headlines from
Washington before WOR start. Continued intact past 1810. Next:
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 1680+, July 20 at 0612 UT, dead air open carrier looping
NE/SW, vs C&W from KRJO Monroe LA to the SE. I figure it`s probably
WPRR Ada MI, which recently went ``off`` the air. I didn`t normally
get WPRR well enough to listen to, KRJO dominant. These make fast SAH
against each other, the NE one on the upper side. MWoffsets shows:

``1680 1680.0106 KRJO (Monroe, LA) [1679.9930-] 24h 2020-02-13
1680 1680.0167 WPRR (Ada, MI) [1680.0137-1680.02] 2019-11-08
unstable, swinging from 1680.018 to 1680.022``

But I would say this time they were at least 20 Hz = .020 apart.

I asked Michiganders about this:

``Hi Harold & Kenneth, Last night at 0612+ UT I had an open carrier on
1680 looping NE/SW, vs Monroe to the SE, and the NE one was slightly
higher in frequency, making fast SAH. I figure it was probably WPRR
transmitter. Could you check out whether it`s on the air with OC?
Glenn``

Kenneth Vito Zichi replies quickly:

``I would guess your assumption about the open carrier is correct.
Jack Amelar in Lowell (near Grand Rapids and in a far better location
to tell than either Harold or I) sent an email on Friday:

"Tonight, 1680 is on with dead carrier. I can barely hear WTTM(p)
under. Tuned into dead carrier at 0015 July 18. At oo26 "Hood" music
pops in, heard an ID 88.? The Ride, back to Hood Music. at 0037 dead
carrier again and still dead at 0140.

And FWIW, somewhat related article "Goodrich Quality Theaters will
reopen after being bought out of bankruptcy"

** BRAZIL. 11780, July 20 at 0034, RNA suptorted as usual here,
degrading music show, S9/+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11584 approx., July 20 at 0031, garbled Spanish, S2-S4 but
loud, i.e. spurblob out of 11670 RHC which is distorted. A stronger
one around 11627, so these are at intervals of 43 kHz away; also
11713, and the next two altho weaker, happen to exchange QRM with
other RHC fundamentals! 11756 vs 11760; 11799 vs 11800, which is JBM;
also a trace on 11842. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 97.5, July 19 at 2353 UT, ``Rock station, 97-5 KMOD``
after adstring with one on Peoria Ave., marginal signal again
signifying that the other Okie on 97.5, closer to here in Alva, KPAK
The Quake, is still absent. Still unremarked in WTFDA FM DB as if it
exist.

BTW, if you hear a street named Peoria, it`s probably from Tulsa, as
it would be rather redundant for Peoria to name a street Peoria. There
is however, another major Peoria artery, in Phœnix AZ but it`s E-W,
while Tulsa`s is N-S. Is there a Tulsa or Phœnix street in Peoria IL?
More downtown Tulsa streets are named for: Boston, Cincinnati, Denver,
Boulder, Cheyenne, Elgin, Frankfort, Hartford, Kenosha, Madison,
Norfolk, some of them in alphabetical order. Harvard and Yale are also
recognized by Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, July 19 at 2350 UT, in another bandscan for
sporadic E DX, fruitless despite 90+ MUF blob to the NW, can`t help
but notice the KLGB-LP Enid`s air is dead again --- but $ tereo and RDS
steady as KLGB plus four blank spaces. Meanwhile sibling station on
same little tower, 99.9 KVBN-LP is nominal. Ditto silent KLGB July 20
at 0043, 0217, 0245, 0418 chex (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2043 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday July 20
at newish time of 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG here S9+20/30 on WNW beam.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 20 at 0130 & 0230 on WRMI 7780, G-VG at
UTwente SDR; at 0130 also confirmed on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 20 from 0304.5 fair on WBCQ 5130 via
Rochester SDR, and Area 51 webcast, 4 seconds apart, but just before
that they were playing separate music fill; strange.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 20 at 0353 the 0330 on WRMI 9955, poor
direct at S4-S8; JBA or not in Latin America SDRs except Pardinho,
Brasil, good at 0358. Pulls the plug 0400 before ID can finish. Next:

** ALGERIA [non]. 6050, July 18 at 0431, S9+5/25 beepery and Arabic
from RTA via its usual defective Issoudun, FRANCE transmitter. Tough
luck, HCJB, should it want to air this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. July 18 at 1634 UT I remind the WOR iog that another
test from LRA36 is imminent, according to Adrian Korol via Horacio
Nigro, as previously published and on WORLD OF RADIO, ``Saturday, July
18 and 25, between 1700 pm [sic] and 2300 UTC, there will be test
broadcasts of LRA 36 on the frequency of 15476 khz USB mode.``

Then I tune in 15475.98-CUSB ``early`` at 1637 via Brazilian SDR to
find it`s already running! Immediately hearing an ID during `Corazón
Antártico` program, of vocal/tango music with similar variety of IDs
between every piece, including at 1640, 1647, 1650, 1654, 1657. At
1642, brief QRM(?) of tone, ``hola, hola`` and counting but never
again. Some of the IDs refer to the regular Wednesday C. A. program at
11-13 local time = 14-16 UT.

At 1700 it becomes clear the preceding has been a prélude to the real
show which sounds live but isn`t: ID with 15476 frequency, briefly in
English and Russian(!), anthem? Greetings and welcome to the 19th
program in the series, 1702 TC for 11:02, credits for on-mike and
produxion personnel, geo coordinates of Esperanza base, and they make
clear it`s miércoles for them. At 1704 they say this program will be
repeated Saturday at 17 UTC, i.e. right now; telephone number and
other contact info, inviting DXers.

Long interview follows but I still don`t learn much about what is
axually being done at Esperanza base. 1731 mentions LRA24, Rio Grande,
I think the QTH of interviewee. That`s on 640 and 88.7 in Tierra del
Fuego, i.e. closest neighbor on the next continent. More about that
station here:
http://www.radionacional.com.ar/category/lra-24-rio-grande/page/57/

1745 discussion more of Argentine than Antarctic matters, mention
Independence Day which was to be tomorrow July 9. 1756 temp as -8 C;
interview winner of a Gardel musical prize.

At 1800 I am obliged to switch to UTwente to hear Texas Radio
Shortwave; see NORTH AMERICA [non]. A quick check back of LRA36 at
1830 finds it OFF already, much earlier than publicized -2300 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 18 at 1345: Only these three in the
WOOB 10-14 ranges: 13130 S2-S4; 12800 JBA carrier; 11120 JBA.

July 18 at 1428: 11440; 11580 S7-S9; // 11900 S4-S6; 13020 S6-S9;
13160 S4-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, July 18 at 0439, CRI via CUBA in Chinesish, i.e.
Cantonese --- none dare call it Hongkonguese --- huge S9+40/50 but
suptorted on-channel, instead splashing/splattering out as far as 9770
vs TURKEY, q.v., and 9805 vs Cuba`s own jamming against nothing.
Please! We need to hear jamming in the clear. Somethings always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, July 18 at 0437, VOG is remodulating unlike dead air
last night, Greek music S9-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, July 19 at 0100, CW partially copied
includes -NOVA- so this is R. Nova as publicized earlier via MARE;
RoboYL ID, ``You are listening to Radio Nova`` and gmail address. Into
familiar Mexican piece on Hammond? organ. But only S3-S5 vs heavy
storm noise peaking higher than that, too bad to enjoy. More reports:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69638.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-USB, July 19 at 0103, much stronger S9 than
Nova on 6935, but annoying QRM from a local artifact blob circa 6961.3
I can`t get rid of (but LSB would have been fine, if any); C&W and
then blues music. Suspected Wolverine Radio, and so it is per:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69629.15.html
But both this and Nova conflict with `Encore` loud & clear on WRMI
5850, also much classier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA [non]. 6070, Sat July 18 at 1801 via UTwente SDR,
Texas Radio Shortwave has started via Channel 292, GERMANY, with `The
Yellow Rose of Texas` theme, alla marcia. I was asked to publicize
this, which I did on WOR 2043 and also a reminder a sesquihour before
to the WOR iog. Best sound is in AMSYNC mode at 5.59 kHz bandwidth,
where it rates -65 to -70 dbm; SINPO I guess about 45444.

Announcer is Third Mate Susan, a RoboYL. Introduces Robert Kipp,
Germany, who constructed the playlist and we hear him reel off a long
list of performers about to be heard; but there are no such
announcements during the music, seguè from one to the next, leaving us
to guess who`s singing what. And guess what? Not a single female
vocalist, altho one tenor might have been.

Right after Kipp, before the first song an unreadable burst in
somelang, maybe Spanish. Robert Kipp is with the
Rhein-Main-Radio-Club, which was the first source of WORLD OF RADIO
podcasts, and still provides them:

https://www.rmrc.de/index.php/rmrc-audio-plattform/podcast/glenn-hauser-wor

I have listed each song title or lyric for the detailed report from me
TRSW expects for a very special QSL. I recognize many, well-known
cowboy songs, but not all of them. I have to record the second half
and listen to later due to lunch.

1806, Low-down State of Mind; QSL request
1807, Ramblin` Man; deep fade briefly
1810, All My Ex`s Live in Texiz
1813, Rose of San Antone
1816, Back in the Saddle Again
1818, Walkin` the Floor Over You
1820, Put Your Sweet Lips a Little Closer to the Phone
1823, That Look in Your Eyes
1826, Gonna Be a Big Star in the Movies

At 1827 I quickly check the other publicized frequency, 3955, but it`s
playing some other music, not Texan at all.

1828, One Time ---?
1831, That`ll Be the Day
1833, Lonely Women Make Good Lovers
1836, You Got to Know When to Hold `Em, When to Fold `Em
1840, Freedom`s Just Another Word for Nothin` Else to Lose
1844, down the Mississippi River, St. Paul, Davenport, Memphis,
Natchez, Baton Rouge, New Orleans -- by truck or barge?
1847, It`s All Right
1850, Pretty Woman
1853, Yellow Rose of Texas, softer version than march theme

1855, RoboYL: ``We`ve come to the end of today`s Treasure Chest of
Texas Music program``; tnx Robert Kipp for playlist and invites more
from listeners, reports for QSL. ``Until next time, remember than Man
was created to provide a place for Polyps to visit; smooth sailing``;
and TYROT alla marcia theme again.

1859, Channel 292 English ID and promo, ``All-Europe Radio, Channel
292, the sound of the never-aging generation; we say it with music``,
and ID in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW, July 18 at 0455 UT, NDB PN in Ponca City is off
the air; instead getting splash from NAVTEX on 518, I am not equipped
to identify but the closest one appears to be NMG New Orleans.

The other usual Okies, 255-SW Stillwater, 341-EI Enid, and 350-RG Will
Rogers WA OKC, are still audible; plus 251-AMarillo TX, see USA (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9770, July 18 at 0438, Turkish talk at S8-S5, which fits
since this is VOT at 0400-0558, but QRM from CRI/Cuba splattering all
the way from 9790! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 251-MCW, July 18 at 0449 UT, ND beacon AM is JBA, 100 watts
from AMarillo TX, the only extrastatal one audible, but I am surprised
the storm noise level be low enough to allow this, considering how
high it is on lower SW bands. Maybe the magloop antenna is to thank,
as most of the time I am tuning LW on the longwire. But no CanadYans
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825 & 13845, July 18 at 1442, WWCRs are serving their only
useful purpose, pilots for sporadic E openings, strong signals
enhanced beyond the usual JBA this close a megameter away. CB is also
hopping with hetting, so time to look for 10m hamband beacons:

28214-CW, July 18 at 1445, VVV N4PAL --- 5 watts from Longwood FL as
in yesterday`s log.

28281-CW, July 18 at 1447, unID too weak, probably W8EH, Middletown OH
as before.

28287-CW, July 18 at 1450, WB0BIN, alternating fast and slow WPM
messages, also relog, 7-10 watts from Sabin MN as in July 9 log.

Whenever checked today, DXMAPs shows Es MUF tantalizingly below 88 MHz
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 18 at 0435, WBCQ-6 with WLCR is back on after a
few days AWOL, including 4 hours earlier during AAAWWW when Allan
mentioned another transmitter problem of some sort. Now S9+30/35 in
English discussing Pagan gods (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, July 18 at 1452, like yesterday, KVOH on early,
prior to nominal start on English Saturdays of 1500, praise song in
English, S9/+10 probably sporadic-E-helped, and with modulation
sufficient. At 1505 I check remotes in their Carib target how well it
arrive as `Wavescan` is in progress: JBA at the TWR SDRs in Bonaire,
DR, and slightly better at closer Key West, but insuff; will have two
or three dozen more chances to hear it on WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday July 19 at 0020, Theater Organ [Not] in the
Ozarx is already underway on WTWW-3, so I immediately switch to $ tereo
webcast; evidently a performance from Indianapolis, ends at 0041, back
to rock music so must have started this week circa 0010 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 657 & 683 kHz, July 18 at 0457, peaks of IBOC noise, which
means it`s back on 670 WSCR Chicago. But not surrounding sibling
station 780 WBBM. This reference does not show it back on WSCR since
2019:
http://www.topazdesigns.com/iboc/station-list.html

Background on this and one of our WOR-supporting friends, William
Hassig. After I mentioned no IBOC bothering SPAIN on 684 kHz, on April
4, 2020, Tom Jasinski wrote from Joliet:

``Glenn: The IBOC for WSCR 670 and WBBM 780 has been off for over a
month now. Both stations now share the same tower.``

On May 9, William Hassig, Mount Prospect IL, explained:

``Combined 670/780 site. I'm fine, thanks. In a recent WOR I heard
that WBBM 780 is now on the same tower with WSCR 670. Last week I
drove west on Golf road (IL58) to Martingale road and turned south. I
drove past the WGN 720 transmitter site with its main rower and self
supporting spare tower. Martingale rd becomes Rohlwing road at that
point. I continued south past the former WBBM 780 site and not only
was everything gone but the property had been sold and a commercial
building was being constructed. I continued south to Army Trail road
and headed west past the WSCR 670 site. Its main tower is taller than
needed for the 670 frequency and on top is a multibay antenna for
Spanish language WLEY 107.9 FM. I took with me an old "el cheapo" TRF
radio with one gang tuning that I had picked up free as a loss leader
at Montgomery Ward many years ago. It is basically an amplified
crystal set with resonant ferrite antenna. I tuned it to 720 before
leaving home and left it there. As I passed the 670/780 site both
stations came out of the radio. In front of the old brick building was
a small SUV with the 780 logo on it. I looked on Google earth and it
still shows the old 780 site.``

Then, from him on July 10:

``Hello everybody, I'm home after an unplanned 29 day odyssey. On the
afternoon of Thursday 11 June I was riding my bicycle south on the
sidewalk on the east side of a 4 lane street. As I was riding across a
cross street on the crosswalk some southbound doofus made a sudden
left turn in front of me in his van. I collided with his drivers side
door and the rest of the van did a number on me. I had a gash on the
right rear of my scalp and I was knocked out immediately before I hit
the pavement. I woke up in the hospital in a cat scan device then they
took x-rays and found that I had a broken scapula in my right
shoulder. On Friday 12 June they sent me across the street to a
nursing home where I needed help doing just about everything. On
Friday 19 June they transported me back to the hospital at 6am to have
an operation where they put in a metal plate. That afternoon they
transported me back to the nursing home for more physical and
occupational therapy. I was just released to go home today at 11am.
Now I have to use a cane to walk. Anyway, that is where I was all this
time.``

Our best wishes to Bill for a full recovery (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

CUBA. 9790, July 18 at 0439, CRI via CUBA in Chinesish, i.e.
Cantonese --- none dare call it Hongkonguese --- huge S9+40/50 but
suptorted on-channel, instead splashing/splattering out as far as 9770

Please! We need to hear jamming in the clear. Somethings always wrong
