Logs
** CUBA. 4765 & 5025, March 17 at 0237, both missing, no Progress and
no Rebellion. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday March 17 at 1538, RHC only S3/S5 and JBM in
Spanish into Maryland SDR, while 11760 is S4/S6. Before 1500 I was not
hearing either direct, boding ill for Esperanto, but I forgot to try
for that between 1500 and 1530 which should be its DST timing. By
1551, 11760 off and 15140 S5 JBM Spanish. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, March 17 at 0618, song at S2/S3, surely Channel 292,
nothing else listed 24h except Vietnam radio war at 1230-1300. Date by
date program sked shows nothing specific most of the time, including
now:
https://www.channel292.de/schedule-9670-khz/
Seldom do I get more than a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 17 at 0606, music JBA vs my high noise level, so
ORTM reactivated without a blob; had been reported March 16 around
2339 by HF Undergrounders via Ron Howard. Wolfgang Bueschel reports
day frequency 9635 also active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, March 17 at 0226, hard rock. R75 Noise
Blanker very much needed and helps a lot. Some reports here as Leeroy,
per fuzzy SSTV; went off at 0234:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127151.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970 USB, March 17 at 0227, soft rock. Many logs
here as Solar Federation Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127152.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, KUCO: I thought I heard them mention a .org
website, instead of the usual kucofm.com So this explains why the old
site was inaccessible on some browsers: https://classicalkuco.org is
the new URL now, tho the contents are much like the old one including
secrecy about what`s scheduled 12-6 am CDT Saturdays. But if you enter
the old URL on Edge it converts to the new one (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** PERU. 4810 & 4820, March 17 at 0238, JBA carriers from these two
but not 4775. Later at night there`s only 4810 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11745, March 17 at 0217, Qur`an at S2/S3, no doubt
the `AFRTS` for forces in Yemen, `Al Azm`, the only thing on 11745,
24h per EiBi & Aoki, site Jeddah. Must be about time for breakfast
stuffage among Ramadaners. Violating Separation of Mosque and State,
haha (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11915, around 22 UT March 16, I noticed no horrible
noiseblob from defective transmitter for Rep. of Yemen Radio; is it
gone again, or moved? Also absent March 17 at 1542 into UTwente, nor
on ex-11820, ex-11860. Could be somewhere else on 25 mb if checked
thoroly, outstanding sorethumbly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, Sunday March 17 at 1438, S7/S9 Spanish talk about
Ukraine, the R. Martí weekend-only from 1300 broadcast. M-F should be
back on 17680 instead at 17-21. What`s the other Martí playing at 1442
on 11930? ``We Will Rock You``, off-topic? 11860 & 13820 not on yet
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday March 17 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 into Bonaire; S9+20
direct, no jamming audible.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 17 at 0353, about 2 minutes into so
nominal 0315v started about 0351 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+20 into
nearby SDR. Late-running Houston Hamsat net playback ran until 0339
ARRL news, so that lasted only 12 minutes. WOR has sometimes appeared
early so need to start checking by 0230. Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JJBBA MW carrier search, March 17 at
0233: nothing but 711 & 891 vs the high noise level, surely Western
Sahara and Algeria. At 0609, only 711 and 882; I suppose 25 kW COPE
Tenerife, Canarias most likely on 882 vs a 10 kW in Wales (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

MALI. 5995, March 16 at 0644, still noise blob, no program audio

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, March 16 at 2211, LRA36 is on, VG
S9+10 into Argentine SDR, YL with historical info mixing bits of harp?
music. By 2340 hitting S9+40 with lots of noise, self-imposed? Or by
the SDR, otherwise only S7. Expected to stop by 2400 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. R. Martí logs are normally filed thus, but also now
could just as well be UKRAINE [non], so I am just keeping them under U
S A

** GERMANY [non]. 15195, March 16 at 1532, S7/S9 of HoA music: or not
quite since EiBi shows this is DW in Hausa via FRANCE for Nigeria on
Saturdays only at 1425-1630, i.e. for stupid ballgames, but none right
now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 16 at 0644, still noise blob, no program audio
from presumed ORTM. Has anyone heard same or anything at all, on day
frequency 9635? At 1640 no signal into UTwente. Nominal span was
08-18, then back to 5995. Also on 9635 meanwhile: Vietnam, CNR1
jamming, Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MARTINIQUE. 28444 USB, March 16 at 2151, FM5WS, quick DX pro-forma
contacts, French accent: ``FM5WS Martinique flag Martinique, Jean
"John" BAILLARD, Ducos 97224, Martinique`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Sat Mar 16 at 1100 UT, KUCO going from first to
second hour of `Beyond the Barrier` ambient music, so in DST season
it`s at 10-12 UT, as well as 05-07 UT, the overnight Sat programs
still secret, not accounted for on program sked
https://www.kucofm.com/program-grid/ via Firefox & Chrome inaccessible
at 1650 March 16 but accessible via Edge, while the webcast via
streamguys.com is playing fine during cinematic `Reel Music`, 1700 Met
Opera `Turandot` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15550, Sat March 16 at 1536, similar-sounding
signal to 15565 Vatican in Amharic, but this is weaker S8/S9; R.
Tamazuj in SSUD Arabic via MADAGASCAR, at 1500-1600, per EiBi
including English Tue & Fri 1511-1530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Sat March 16 at 2259, VOT comes on just in time
for 2300 English sign-on for the 1330 broadcast only, mixing with
timesignal from XJRTV understation on earlier than usual *2311v.
S9+40/45 into UTwente which displays a smidgin below 5960.000 which
must have been XJ, as above +5v Hz once I refresh it. News first and
mostly about Gaza. 2310.5 `The Energy Agenda` on T`s strategic
location for natural gas pipelines. 2318 song. 2327 `T`s Geomarked
[sic] Products`, recipe for a dessert made with cheese, sherbet/syrup,
temp 350 C -- really?! = 662 F. 2329 song, 2332 another song. 2337
another2 song... If it runover past 2400 that will be in my next
report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, Sat March 16 at 1501, as expected, R. Martí is now
here as sked Sat & Sun instead of 17680 at 17-21 M-F; only S6/S8
direct, not blasting in like 17680, but propagation today is degraded,
10m is even dead and/or the MUF has not built up yet, and/or dependent
on sporadic E between NC and OK. 1525 recheck, outro VOA Editorial,
Martinoticias contact info, 1526 `Abriendo Espacios` women`s program
but focus on Ukraine. Now it`s S9/+10 direct. At 1544 recheck it`s
off! But cuts back on and off again during Ukrainian song. At 1552
finally tuning via UTwente: off, but back on at *1557, S9+15/20. Left
running in background, no more breeaks perceived. 1642 Ukrainian song
again. 1700 dead air and off 1701*. Indeed not on 17680 after 1700
since this is not M-F. One must wonder why VOA itself and/or RFE/RL
have not re-started SW broacasts in Ukrainian/Russian for a rather
larger audience.

Follow-ups: Richard Langley says the date 17680 ran past 2100 was
March 14; Wolfgang Bueschel says the reason Biblis or Lampertheim are
not used for this is high cost of electricity in Germany (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday March 16 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR, vs
continuous roar noise; even worse at Maine SDR atop us. Yet into
Missouri SDR S9+30 without roar, and also OK direct, as it`s 315
degrees beamed right at us. The further east, the more the roar,
really ruining WRMI on that frequency. Is it some legit ute or
``jamming``??

Also confirmed UT Saturday March 16 at 0400 sharp, ex-0500, on WTWW
5085, S9+20/40 into Missouri SDR, and VG direct, appended to `Ancient
Word Radio` -- not World as sometimes typoed, and not to be confused
with another AWR; bit of music after at 0429 and off.

Also confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1554 the 1530 on SW Radio, Grmany,
6160.002, S9+5/15 into UTwente. WBCQ/TOMBS not a problem!

Also confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1725 the still 1700 on WRN North
American webcast, same UT despite imposition of DST over here. It`s //
their Af/As/Pac service where DST is irrelevant; so WRN makes the
change to 1600 etc., for equally irrelevant BST as of March 31.

Also confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1845 the 1830 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.002, S9+10 into UTwente.

Confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1930 on WRMI webcast-only as expected
ex-2030; and not on 15770. That is, playing on my Winamp as saved
link:
http://wrmi.listen.creek.fm/stream

While exactly the same link http://wrmi.listen.creek.fm/stream
accessed more directly is carrying Polish Radio presumably from WRN.
Huh? After 2000 they continue to be different, one with La Rosa de
Tokio, the other with more Polish Radio. O, the one with PR had been
paused, so not really `live` playing.

Confirmed Saturday March 16 from 1946 the 1930v on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, delayed following ARNL, VG groundwave into nearby SDR. Next:

0000 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?] [ex-0100]
0230vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0500][ex-0415]
2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323-Italy
2230 UT Sunday SW Radio, Germany 3975
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 15565, March 16 at 1534, S9+20/30 is the SSOB except for
15825 WWCR with sporadic E boost. VR in Amharic to Ethiopia at
1530-1600, also on // 13830 with keyword ``Catholic``. Standard remark
about SMG backward signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11741 & 11790 & 11839 approx., March 16 at 1540,
same-sounding spur?blobs. Note they are 49 Hz apart, as if
symmetrically out of 11790, but nothing sked there now. BTW, 11760 RHC
is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Government USAGM Radio Marti anti-Cuba Spanish service program
is operated by OCB - "Office of Cuba Broadcasting"

see WRTH 2024 page # 569

for example:

were deployed regularly for decades and
were provided with RHC Spanish and Portuguese radio broadcasts ...

ps. WHY Not ?

relay bcasts from Greenville NC, instead of USAGM Lampertheim Europe:

electricity in Germany is too much EXPENSIVE these days,
so the nation people and industry suffers greatly from the
doubling or tripling of electrical power generation costs.

German pensioners with a small pension
pay 1.5 times more additional electricity costs
than a single monthly pension,
instead of previous decade.

The annual electricity costs of our local amateur radio station
in Stuttgart have now doubled to 500 EURo / Year ...
thanks to the shutdown of the German nuclear power industry
by the sociologist Greens, in her 2 year reign ideology.

U S A. 17680, Fri March 15 at 1657 tune-in via UTwente, open
carrier S9+10/20, 1700 R. Martí ID, nothing about VOA, and right into
program `La Libertad es una Librería` discussing Ukrainian poetry in
translation. That means bookshop, not library.

Before 1700 still no signal on 17865. Peter Hanson checked IBB
monitoring in ``Kiev`` showing that 17865 at 13-17 is for Sat & Sun,
17680 at 17-21 for M-F only. So on March 16 we should find it earlier
on the other frequency instead. Also, on March 15, Richard Langley
reported 17680 had run past 2100 on some unspecified date:

``An update: Listened to all of my 10-minute clips. There seemed to be
a VOA editorial near the top of the hour each hour (except the first
hour). At about 2104 UT, there was a version of the Ukrainian
patriotic song "Ой у лузі червона калина, romanized: Oi u luzi
chervona kalyna" (something like: "Oh, there is a red viburnum in the
meadow") in SPANISH! Most of us have heard various versions of this
song since the start of the war but perhaps not in Spanish. When
checking on the spelling of the song, I came across this version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkMKYPWWmSY Very nice, particularly the
portions with brass instruments. The hour


continued past 2106 when my recording ended. So not signing off at
2100 according to the supposed schedule. Will extend my recordings to
see if there is a consistent s/off time. Slava Ukraini! -- Richard
Langley``

Volodya Salmaniw, BC, replied, ``Thanks for sharing, Richard! The song
was banned in the Soviet Union. As I recall, it was written during the
first world war but became popular with the Ukrainian Insurgent Army
during and after World War 2. As many Ukrainian songs are, it's
cryptic, describing how Ukraine, although broken, will arise again. We
learned it as children growing up in the diaspora. Always gives me a
lump in my throat. Walt``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Something to read about this Ukrainian Insurgent Army:
