Logs
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer quick check before 1400* July 13, from 1358:
13020, 12880, 12820, 12800, all poor. At 1423, only on 11460, 11100
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, July 13 at 0544, RHC English is S9+10 and the SSOB (if
you attach this to 25m), but suptorted during a song. 2 x 6100, but
nothing on 12290 which would be 2 x 6145. Unusually, however, 2 x 6000
is also audible on 12000, S9 and undermodulated but not distorted. At
0557 I check the fundamentals: 6100 S9+30 suptorted; 6000 S9+20/30
undermod. Something`s always wrong at RHC. In case you think I say
that too much, axually I should say it four times about this item: bad
mod on both of them, harmonix out of both of them (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 13840, July 13 at 0541, JBA YL in French. I`m checking
in case NZ be on here in addition to its VG 9700 this hour. No, this
is NHK via MADAGASCAR at 0530-0600. BTW, Radio Japan languages
continue to default to English filler. Alan Roe reports:

``JAPAN [non]. The coronavirus pandemic continues to affect output
from NHK World R Japan. English news audio originating from NHK
Newsline [television! -- gh] heard during the opening 9 minutes in the
French service of NHK R Japan on 11730 kHz via Issoudun at 0530 UT on
Saturday 11 July. This was followed by audio from the English TV
programme J-MELO with a voice-over in French. NHK Newsline audio
continues also in the English service (as heard on 5975 at 0500, also
Saturday 11 July). Alan Roe, Teddington, UK``, WOR iog (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. In Enid we are blessed with three signals carrying ``The
House FM``, Jeezus rock aimed at younger demographic, which I avoid
like the plague, but in a very idle moment compare them, July 12
around 2132-2145 UT. First how they appear in the WTFDA Database:

KJTH 89.7 PONCA CITY OK 100.0 kW H&V 307.0 m HAAT 36-35-42 97-34-38
29B9 KJTH - Religious Music CHRISTIAN CHR/ROCK THE HOUSE HD is Off

KGVV 90.5 GOLTRY OK 14.0 kW H&V 40.0 m HAAT 36-27-45 98-02-28 220F My
Praise FM - Music with a message Adult Hits CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN THE
HOUSE OF PRAISE

K253BC relays KLVV 88.7 98.5 ENID OK 0.25 kW H&V 78.5 m HAAT H 0.0 m
HAAT V [huh?] 36-23-54 97-50-14 CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN MY PRAISE FM

At this time, 90.5 is running 20 seconds behind 98.5; 89.7 sounds
similar but I can`t make a match plus or minus at all. Also on my
headphones it is obvious that 90.5 in $ tereo is modulating on right
channel only!

88.7 and 89.7 in Ponca are the originating sibling stations. To
confuse the situation further, July 13 at 1639 check, the three *are*
in // but not synchronized during a joint ``The House, and Praise``
fundraiser: translator 98.5 is first, 89.7 follows 13 seconds later,
and 90.5, another 5 seconds later! I suppose internet connexions are
being used for some or all of this. And 90.5 is still right channel
only (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. July 13 at 1455 UT, level-5 tropo blob centred around OKC
per Hepburn predixion, lesser rings out to the fringe here. Bandscan
with broken antenna gets many Bad signals on the few open channels,
including 6, presumably KBSD Ensign = Dodge City KS. And some of the
OKC channels are not decoding, RF 27 & 29, obviously due to DX QRM,
and even our local Enid K17JN-D translator invisible.

RF 20, 19-1 KQCW `News on 6` Tulsa market`s CW is the only clear
decoder, as it often is, but no subchannels on it.

RF 23, KSBI OKC is normally marginal or not decoding with its inferior
tower/power situation, but now it`s boosted so I explore its lineup:
52-1 KSBI; 52-2 Bounce: 52-3 Laff; 52-4 Grit; 52-5 Mystery. These
match rabbitears.info listings, but W9WI.com does not show any beyond
52-1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2042 monitoring: missed check of
the newish 0030 UT Monday July 13 on WRMI 7730; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Monday July 13 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, good via UTwente;
also WRN webcast a few seconds apart.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 13 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, good at Utwente.

NOT confirmed UT Mon July 13 after 0300 on WBCQ 5130, nor 6160v, both
of which are not audible at Rochester or Alexandria SDRs, and presumed
off air. But on Area 51 webcast start at 0302. Recheck the remote at
0400, 5130 is now on but signing off; unknown at what point during the
hour 5130 came on, during or after WOR?

Also confirmed UT Mon 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG at Bonaire SDR and no
jamming heard, while at Rochester there is only jamming.

Also confirmed Monday July 13 from 1800:23 as received via UTwente
SDR, on 7290, IRRS via Bulgaria, off to a good start and still going
well at 1825, over at 1829.4 into music, IRRS ID and Milano contact
info, 1830.5 longer FSN.

Carrier was already on at 1755 tune-in, vs 7291 warble and 7280/7300
splash; just before 1759 cut on music --- never the same prélude from
one week to next; just before 1800 quick sign-on and Feature Story
News from Washington, headlines only, and then WOR. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Thanks this week for financial support from Ron Howard, Monterey CA,
for a generous check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box
1684, Enid OK 73702; in memoriam Brian Alexander, Pennsylvania DXer
who died in December 2012

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com
PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, July 13 at 0549, WEWN English is still AWOL. Found
nothing about this on website; still shows A-20 frequency schedule,
but the program schedule
https://www.ewtn.com/radio/download/Shortwave_Grid.pdf
will not open. Lots of activity on their disgraced FB linked from WOR
Hitlist, but all about program promotion, and listener response,
obviously not any by SWLs. Who needs SW?

I`ve now asked Glen Tapley, frequency manager: ``Glen, WEWN English
frequencies 15610 and 9385 have been off since July 3, at least never
heard here in numerous checks. What`s the problem? Have you decided to
stop broadcasting in English? Both transmitters out of order? Spanish
continues on 12050 and 5970. Regards, Glenn Hauser`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, July 13 at 0546, RV talks in Bislama, S5-S7, after
several nights of JBA signals; 3 x 3945, but pales in comparison to
RHC 2 x 6100 on 12200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. Adding to previous report on the extended broadcast of
LRA36, 15475.98-CUSB, July 11 as heard via Brasília KiwiSDR: Kept
playing nothing but music from Miguel Figueroa y Su Conjunto,
including shout-outs by the leader but no station announcements, past
1800, 1824, and still past 1900 and past when I finally quit at 1912+.
Manuel Méndez in Spain reported, ``At about 1940 signal weakened and
became inaudible. 15321``

I found this link to more about his group and many performances, and
BTW, July 9 was independence day in Argentina, so maybe that explains
this broadcast on I.D. weekend?
https://www.facebook.com/miguelfigueroaysuconjuntoamancercampero/
Citing here does not imply endorsement by gh of disgraced FB.

Now, Horacio Nigro posts to the WOR iog:

``Friends and colleagues such as Horacio Nigro Geolkiewsky and
Alejandro Álvarez have suggested on various occasions to evaluate the
performance of the transmitter in use by LRA36 Radio Nacional Arcángel
San Gabriel in USB mode. I transmitted this concern to the operator
and technical manager of the station, Mr Damian Tranamil, who
considered it possible to carry out some tests taking into account
both the mode of emission and the propagation at the appropriate
time.

That is why the next Saturday, July 18 and 25, between 1700 pm [sic]
and 2300 UT, there will be test broadcasts of LRA 36 on the frequency
of 15476 khz USB mode. Reports of reception to
tranalra36@radionacional.gov or to Facebook Esperanza San Gabriel.
Confirm via eQSL. Diffusion appreciated (Adrian Korol, RAE, Buenos
Aires Argentina via Horacio Nigro Geolkiewsky, Montevideo, Uruguay,
July 12)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRIA. 11620, July 12 at 0614, YL in French; BBC via Moosbrunn
listed this hour only; tuning across in USB, hear a LAH so seemed
off-frequency, but measured within a couple Hz of .000. The LAH is
axually some hum on the audio, another indicator of trouble at this
transmitter site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15340, July 12 at 1258, Chinese at S6-S8; Aoki shows Sound
of Hope relaying RFA via Pingtung, Taiwan site all the way from 00 to
17 with only 1 kW; so this is certainly CNR1 *jamming.

14870, July 12 at 1259, JBA algo, Chinese? An SOH frequency, so CNR1
jamming.

More thorough CNR1 jammer survey, July 12 from 1305, a most active
hour in local primetime of 9 pm:

1305, 13835 with two signals mixing, the victim being RFA Tibetan via
TAJIKISTAN this hour only. Also single signals on 13160, 13150.

1310: 12880 S7-S9; 12870; 12800 echo; 11460; 11150; 11120; 11100
S4-S7; 10920; 10820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9940, July 12 at 1317, slow rather wistful song
at S6-S9, 1320 Korean talk and more music. It`s Nippon no Kaze via
Paochung, TAIWAN site during this semihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non?]. 15120, July 12 at 0621, JBA carrier, possibly Voice
of Nigeria; when I heard this broadcast on 11770- instead of 9690-
instead of 7255-, I remarked, ``what`s next, 15120?``. Tonight all
three lower frequencies are vacant, and 19m is barely propagating
anything, the Midnight Sun helping.

However, CRI Beijing site is on 15120 at 0300-0700; Nigeria supposedly
in DRM only, when active at various times between 0900 and 1900. Other
JBA AM carriers on 19m now: 15160 correlating with China, 15180 with
North Korea, and 15400 with BBC Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-SSTV, July 12 at 0131 tune-in to SSTV beepery
in progress; hard to pin down in USB tuning, not having heard any
voice, also audible on 6951, but I notice no sound listening on AM.
S9+10 via indoor longwire due to local storms; pause and soon start
another SSTV and then apparently off, nothing further. Many logs here
as KDOG, with many previous SSTV images mostly of --- dogs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69365.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sun July 12 at 0137, `Encore` classical
music via WRMI, VG here and VP on // 5010. Hope to catch the rest of
it from 0200 UT Mon on 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SINGAPORE. 15145, July 12 at 1258, S7-S9 of BBCWS English promotion
to 1259*, this hour only via Kranji, 250 kW at 13 degrees across China
and USward, and per Aoki also *jammed but none heard here. Far too
many Chinese understand English, so even BBC Must Be Jammed to keep
them ignorant (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Once again while waiting/hoping for the Es MUF to penetrate
the FMBC band, I check out the 10m hambeaconband, mostly relogs:

28281-CW, July 12 at 1810, DE W8EH FM79, i.e.:
``28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL``

28254.5-CW, July 12 at 1812, VVV VVV DE K4JEE/B, i.e.:
``28.2545 K4JEE C LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY # 5W, VERTICAL New 6 Nov
11``

28325-CW, July 12 at 1814, partial ID as W0R--, big fade up and out,
but not listed by WJ5O, as slightly above its beacon sub-band limit.
Seemed like a beacon, as CW QSOs would be down toward 28000.

28217.7-CW, July 12 at 1849 after lunch, VVV VVV DE K4PAR/B and more
in long message of 26 seconds, and long pause of 28 seconds before
repeating, i.e.:

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2042 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday July 12
at 0300 on WRMI 5800; vs high storm noise level nearby.

Not confirmed between 0300 & 0400 UT Sun July 12 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM,

anything; abates slightly at 0404 when I can recognize Vern`s voice.

** U S A. 7490.04 approx, UT Sun July 12 at 0134, dead air from WBCQ,
typical offset frequency. `Shortwave Saturday Night` with Pirate Joe,
J.P. Ferraro is supposed to run 0100-0400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14400-AM, July 12 at 1304, rather steady S6 open
carrier. Not an Aoki-listed CNR1 jamming channel (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14486-USB, July 12 at 1300, 2-way in Spanish, weak but
stronger one mentions some numbers, and different tones in background
maybe music or just hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Correxion: third frequency was 7365, not 7465; fixed:

** CUBA. 7335, 7345, 7365, 7405, 7435, July 11 at 0556, residual
jamming on all these Mart? frequencies, even the DRM one, despite it
being totally off SW between 04 & 10 UT for months now. They do not
all sound exactly the same, different pulsing and pitching. The
incompetent and hugely wasteful Jamming Command also has no
consideration for innocent bystations. Think how many undernourished
Cubans could be fed for the cost of all that electropower alone!

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, July 11 at 1400, special USB test
broadcast publicized from LRA36 for one hour, but no signal direct to
here, so on to Brazilian KiwiSDRs: the best one at Pardinho is already
maxed out; no signal at Campo or Rio, but good via Brasília so I stay
on that for the duration.

1402, songs are playing; 1410 Spanish announcements, ID, and I think a
quick one in English and maybe another language, all the rest in
Spanish. Lots and lots of conversation; they certainly have no lack of
stuff to talk about, but I have a hard time making it out without a
loud and clear signal. Do the Esperanzans ever explain the scientific
research they are carrying out; if any, or are they just there to
maintain Argentina`s questionable claim to this sector of the
supposedly ``international`` continent?

1417, contact info which they also repeat periodically. I tune the SDR
to 15476.00 exactly in Synchronous AM mode and watch the readout of
the ``carrier``, constantly jumping around in Hz: 152, 211, 201, 199,
173, 169, 190, 197 etc. I`m not sure if this be significant and
exactly what it mean --- maybe attempting to lock onto it minus some
200 Hz without success since carrier is so far reduced. Yes, there is
a carrier, obvious if you tune to 15475.0-USB and hear the het/tone.
This broadcast had been publicized as something new in USB as if it
had not been in USB all the time. Maybe the carrier has been reduced
more than usual, but not eliminated.

By 1450 it`s faded up better, with laughter, song, but by 1454 I`m
distracted by TVDX from The Metroplex: see USA. 1458, ``Nacional, La
República`` ID as this may be simulcast on the domestic LRA network,
and multi-digit phone number, toll-free? 1507-1520, caller with a very
hoarse voice, outro ID as Alejandro Ortiz; seems like he`s at one of
the other bases? 1521 music and program ID as `Corazón Antártico`..
1542 mention Adrián Korol, head of RAE who apparently arranged this
broadcast. 1558 another caller ends, ID, jingle; 1601 credit plugs for
regular Wednesday show, music, yet another caller. 1621 music bit,
1640 song with bandoneón, music only still going past 1700. Really
nice and I stick with this instead of Gounod`s Faust on KUCO. 1718
says its ``Miguel Figueroa y su Conjunto``. Still 1725+. 1730, another
brief plug for `Corazón Antártico`, miércoles 11-13` local time, but
that`s also name of program now at 1732. 1739+, To be continued?

[non] But from 1605 to 1700 it`s in the background as I was mainly
listening to `The Score` on KUCO-FM webcast, this week tributing the
late Ennio Morricone, with his great cinemusic, to be continued next
week! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. CNR1 jammer survey, July 11 from 1322, and there
are lots of them, starting with the only one with equal level from
victim:

15165, S8/S9+10 two Chinese talkers mixing, so in this case only, VOA
is holding its own at least over here if not inside China. It`s 13-14
only via THAILAND, and from that angle the 14-degree azimuth is also
aimed toward us far beyond (like HSK9`s NAm service at 6 or 38 degrees
which never comes in this well after 0000).

Now to quick scan of all the others, not all evaluated for strength or
//, some presumed, and never any Firedragon music: 15130; 14500 JBAC;
13835 echo; 13530 S9/+10; 13160; 12880; 12870 S9+10/20; 12820 S3-5;
12800 S8-9; 12500 S5-9; 12190 S4-7 vs CODAR.

By now it`s 1331, continuing: 11460; 11440; 11170 S4-7; 11150; 11100;
10960 JBAC; 10920; 10870; 10820; (10370 not // music --- oops, that`s
11760 RHC minus local 1390 KCRC mix); 10160 JBAC; 9300; 9255; 9230;
9215; 9200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, July 11 at 0547, RHC not in wrong language Spanish, but
instead English tonight, // 6000 distorted, 6100 & 6145 good, 12200
poor; so we again have a `Cuban 5` despite deletion of 6060.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7335, 7345, 7465, 7405, 7435, July 11 at 0556, residual
jamming on all these Martí frequencies, even the DRM one, despite it
being totally off SW between 04 & 10 UT for months now. They do not
all sound exactly the same, different pulsing and pitching. The
incompetent and hugely wasteful Jamming Command also has no
consideration for innocent bystations. Think how many undernourished
Cubans could be fed for the cost of all that electropower alone!
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 3955, reply from The Mystery Pirate to my report of
hearing music from something via remote from 0200 July 11:

``Hi Mr. Hauser - A problem at Channel 292 prevented our program from
airing this morning. What you heard, I believe, was 292's "filler"
music, transmitted when they have no paid programming.

The program will air at 0200 UTC tomorrow, July 12, 2020. If you could
let your readers know, I'd appreciate it.

Yours truly, The Mystery Pirate. We're a mystery to ourselves``

Also asked someone else not to publicize e-mail address, so people
have to search it out. Not the way to encourage reports. I already
showed it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Bill Hepburn`s tropo forecast map for 15 UT July 11 shows a
convoluted mess around here, levels 1, 2 and 3 between here and The
Metroplex, whence I soon find some signals into my broken antenna at
roof level on a bent mast, not even pointing horizontally:

Bandscan starting at 1524 UT finds a few signals barely decoding:
RF 30, 29-1, KMPX-HD [1000 kW, Decatur TX, Estrella TV]
RF 31, 55-1, Azteca [KAZD, 1000 kW, Lake Dallas TX]
RF 21, 58-1, TBN-HD [KDTX-TV, 736 kW, Dallas; all as W9WI.com listed]
RF 14, 13-1, KERA-HD PSIP showing at 1608 captured when not looking

Also many BAD signals probably mostly from same area: 32, 35, 36, 11,
20, 26. BTW, W9WI.com shows *2* Dallas stations on RF 36: KDFI-27 and
Spanish KXTX-TV 39; that can`t be right, simultaneously (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)
