Logs
** 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 [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2043 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 18 at 1326 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, S9-S5. Next:

(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)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13972.72-USB, approx., July 18 at 1437, 2-way in
Spanish.

14634-USB, July 18 at 1439, 2-way in Spanish mentioning unloading the
boat = descargar el barco (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Also WOR Extra 73 = Continent of Media 06-09 from 2006
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 17 at 2314, WBCQ-6 is still off but there is that
curious JBA carrier on 9333; no signals on 5130 or 6160v, only noisy
7490v, as I am assessing the situation in hour prior to AAAWWW.

Area 51 webcast at 2357 mentions ``slack`` several times, as in `Hour
of` ? And about anal-retentiveness.

7490 webcast I switch to at 0000 UT Sat July 18 just as WTO theme is
starting; by 0003 A&A opening as he always helps his sweetheart to
adjust her microphonium; and right into politix which I don`t need to
hear.

At 0004 recheck the A51 webcast and find it also running AAAWWW but
several seconds delayed. Spotchex follow: at 0015 A51 is playing a
song, so no longer with AAAWWW, where the lovebirds are still talking
on 7490 webcast. At 0018 annoying Freddie has called; altho he has
several Black friends, he doesn`t like this BLM stuff.

0023 back on A51, music, what is this? DJ talking about formerly on
WZAK in Canton OH, after a bunch of country/drinking songs.

0048 on 7490 webcast, AW mentions ``9330 is down, with *another*
transmitter problem``, but no further details, not now anyway.

At 0051, while AW is trying to read e-mail, Freddie is still on the
phone interrupting with signal reports, including 5130 as 20 over S9,
and as if AAAWWW is axually on it, so I check SW frequencies here:

At 0054, 5130 is buried in noise but I can tell it is AAAWWW, not the
music on the A51 webcast. 6160- is also audible, weaker than 7490.

0100, 7490 webcast, AAAWWW wraps up just in time for Hal Turner
theme.

0217, A51 webcast is still running with music so I listen again for a
while. DJ says this show is all-beer songs and back-announces a number
of titles; in a six-week theme series, last week wine, next week
marijuana, so put in your requests now to Zombo`s Record Party on FB,
but this show is pre-recorded not live.

IIRC, Zombo has appeared on WBCQ before, and he does mention WBCQ
among other stations, but his name is not to be found on the WBCQ
website schedule, nor even the Archive. Was on WZAK Canton at 4 am;
also had been on WAPS; and did one --- only one --- show for KAOS on
the west coast; finally ``This is WRCT 88.3, Zombo In Your Brain``.
That`s a free-form station in Pittsburgh PA, and such a show is
scheduled Fridays 10 am-1 pm EDT = 14-17 UT:

** U S A. 15810, July 17 at 2244, open carrier S9-S7. Presumably
WTWW-3 rarely turned on, test? Anyone hear programming earlier today?
Too bad it`s too late to compare with neighbor 15825 WWCR which has
already QSYed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BULGARIA. 7290, July 17 at 1827, I check out how IRRS hour in
English is doing via Secretbrod, into UTwente SDR: dead air! except
for 7291 warble, 7280 splash and humroar on own carrier; but song
modulation cuts on once a minute for 5-10 seconds at 1827, 1828, 1829,
1830, 1831, 1832 --- enough of that; time for lunch. 1859 recheck

Glad it would not have been WOR. Tried to check website,

S2-S4 Chinese, 10960 JBA.

At 1346: 9180 Chinese; stronger 9260 S5-S7 this one with fast SAH from

** U S A. Sporadic E MUFs are mostly tantalizingly just below 88 MHz
FMBC band. Unfortunately, I don`t have a decent lowband TV Ch 2-6
antenna and rotor, so I am missing DTVDX and maybe some analog left
from Latin or Canadian America; 6 meters may be open too, but a few
chex for beacons there have not succeeded, as all I have is my
longwire mainly for HF and MF. That leaves the 10m hambeaconband,
after first finding CB such as 27025 hopping with hetty pileups:

28217.5, July 17 at 1419, VVV DE K4PAR/B, and fades. WJ5O shows:

PROPAGATION BEACON "ON AIR"

One of the many things I do to help the amateur radio hobby is to
operate and maintain a "propagation beacon" station using a FCC
approved Amateur HF Transmitter for [CW].

There are many such stations located around the world that are
operated by other amateur radio operators. Simply stated: A
propagation beacon station constantly transmits a signal using morse
code (CW) on a specific frequency. If an amateur radio operator or
short wave listener hears a beacon coming from another part of the
world it usually means that they can either hear, or in the case of an
amateur radio operator talk to, stations operating from the same area

** U S A. 9330, July 17 at 0639, WLCR via WBCQ-6 is OFF again. (No
9333 carrier either now); still off at 1345. What`s wrong? Still
nothing about it from AW twits, other than vague comment latest:

``Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ · Jul 16 --- Another day of radio work here
at the shortwaves station WBCQ. From antenna maintenance to
transmitter repair. From roof work to field mowing there’s always much
to do at WBCQ. 9330/7490/6160/5130khz are the free speech spots on
your dial. Fixing the 780khz AM transmitter.``

Is he back in ME now or still in FL? Can`t tell. Maybe he will impart
some info on tonight`s AAAWWW; please monitor, 00-01 UT Sat on 7490+
and maybe some of the others, or webcasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Fri July 17 at 1348, WRMI-3, `Viva Miami` --- this
time it`s really in Spanish, Jeff & Thaïs chatting about Florida, a
visit to almost vacant Orlando; big turtles on the beaches; and
acknowledging reception reports, some from non-SS countries, such as
Japón; did they really write in Spanish? Postal address remains
6-figure box in Miami; I`d think that would be inconvenient for the
Okeechobeeans to check.

Once again, 9955 does not go off* at 1400 but continues with `Freedom
Synergy Radio`, first item about Hong Kong situation, in English;
still going at 1417 but off after 1430. However, System B sked shows
FSN webcast only for a full hour at 1400-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, July 17 at 1345, KVOH on early with song/hymn, S8
and undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Level 1-2 tropo William Hepburn forecast around this part of
OK, KS, July 17 at 1500 UT, and I bandscan starting at 1525: most open
UHF channels, 20-36 have at least a Bad signal and several of the OKC
channels are not decoding due to DX QRM. Also RF ch 6 Bad despite no
apropos antenna, presumed KBSD Ensign=Dodge City KS.

A few do decode so I explore their subs: Derby=Wichita KS:

RF 31: 31-1 KDCU-DT Spanish; 31-2 Grit; 31-3 Escape=Mystery; 31-4
Laff; 31-5 Court.

Two from Tulsa:
RF 34: 41-1 KMYT-TV; 41-2 GetTV; 41-3 GritTV: 41-4 HNI
RF 22: 23-1 KOKI-TV; 23-2 MeTV; 23-3 EscapeT [sic]=Mystery

All these lineups match W9WI.com listings (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 17 at 0220, no signal from WLCR via WBCQ-6; but
there is an S5-S8 open carrier on 9333.0. I`ve heard that before, only
when WBCQ is absent, never a detectable het when it`s on, making me
think the two are somehow related. 7490+v still on nominally (Glenn
