Wednesday, July 22 2020

Logs
** BRAZIL. 11780, July 21 at 2126, RNA is S8/S9+10 but JBM suptorted
and some squeal. Wake up at the site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jamming survey, July 22 at 1346-1400: 11460; 11440;
11150; 11120; 11000- JBA carrier; 10920; 10820; 12500; 12550; 12795
S9; 12835 S9-S7; 12880; 13020; 13130; 13160 S5-S8; 13630; 13835;
13920; 14850; 14920; 16065?; 16160; 9230 timesignal to 1400* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11628 & 11712 approx., July 22 at 0114, extremely distorted
spurblobs from 11670 RHC; F# tone also audible especially in FM tuning
mode. Plus & minus 42 kHz, but no further multiples noted this time.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 1090, July 22 at 0600 UT, another dead-air hole
provided by KAAY Little Rock, facilitating when nulled other hearage.
Filled by music, brief unreadable Spanish announcement, then that song
in English with strumming, morphing from ``Somewhere Over the
Rainbow`` into ``What a Wonderful World``. Lovely, like this by IZ:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z26BvHOD_sg
So I do expect it to be XEAU Monterrey NL, 5/0.5 kW, which is
conveniently close to right angle from KAAY, and could also be source
of the English song last night. A fraxion of Mexistations do
specialize in English music; sure beats TV infomercials. 0605 KAAY
resumes with gospel music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28227.3-CW, July 22 at 1454, beacon VVV VVV DE KC0VDY/B:
``28.2273 KC0VDY C FRUITA, COLORADO 5W New 9 June 2018``
Fruita is just west of Grand Junxion on I-70 near Utah border. QRZ.com
shows:
``KC0VDY USA flag USA, James C Jeffery, Ii, Fruita, CO 81521 USA
I have a 10 Meter beacon that is on 28.2273 MHz running 5 watts
through a vertical antenna. Let me know if you hear it. 73s`` Not as
long as QRZ.com has this restrixion: ``Email: (Ham members only)``

28224.5-CW, July 22 at 1500, beacon K5GJR/B ..., heard before:
``28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL``

29300-CW, July 2 at 1502, K5FRC/B, no further message, just ID like on
13565, which I`ve not heard in quite a while. WJ5O roster has this
rather confusing info as it includes historical/outdated entries:

``28.300 K6FRC/B3 TRACY, CALIFORNIA 10W, VERTICAL QRT prior to 2016
28.300 K6FRC C TRACY, CALIFORNIA # 100W, "POGO stick" VERTICAL Freq
change 8 July 09
28.300 K6FRC/B2 TRACY, CALIFORNIA 10W, VERTICAL Backup transmitter
for K6FRC/B`` --- but no listing for the call I do hear, K6FRC/B.
However most of the hundreds of listees omit the /B which most of them
do transmit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2043 monitoring: Next:

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

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Thanks this week for financial support from Wayne Davis,
Trenton NJ, for a generous check in US funds on a US bank to
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, with this note:

``Please accept this long overdue token of my appreciation for your
decades of enrichment of our radio pursuit``

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. 6159.9v, UT Wed July 22 at 0054 open carrier; 0055 start
``WBCQ The Planet`` ID & IS loop, 0100 music and faux time signal, Hal
Turner theme. Now it`s // 7490+ and 9455 WRMI.

5130.0 is not // the other WBCQs, 0057 music, 0100 `Whiter Shade of
Pale`, 0106 brief talk unreadable, maybe attempt to start `Amateur
Radio Roundtable` as sked, right back to music 0111+; too noisy (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 22 at 1400, WLCR via WBCQ-6 is gone again (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, July 22 at 0116, WEWN English is finally back on after
missing some 18 days, first noted absent July 4. Now it`s S9+20/30,
seems stronger than before, rivalling WBCQ-6 9330, so maybe really
refurbished with more power output.

Back on July 13, frequency manager Glen Tapley had replied to my
inquiry, ``Filament and cable repair. Should be back in a day or
two``. Program now is discussing Planned Parenthood, no doubt
negatively by the Catholix who prefer Random Parenthood, and who cares
about overpopulation, a root cause of many of this world`s problems?
15610, afternoon frequency should also be back at 19-24; did not
notice it in random tuning July 21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 22 at 0124 and 0216 chex, no signal from WRNO,
not unusual, nominally 0100-0400; is it frustrating for transmitters
and receivers or does no one really care? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Tuesday, July 21 2020

Logs
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 21 at 1338-1400, a lot of them
despite using indoor longwire due to storms. Noted S reading for some
of the strongers; many confirmed by //, but some JBA carriers in usual
spots so presumed. Chinese talk at first, later music:

13160, 12880, 12870, 12835, 12500, 12190; 14900, 14850; 16100 JBAC,
16300; 11460 & 11440 S9-S7; 11120, 11070, 10960 JBAC, 10920 S6-S9,
10820 S9/+10; 9230, 9200, 9180; then check inbanders: 11520, 11570,
11580=not synchronized; 11785; 9680, 9660.

At 1428: 15110, 14980, 14690; 13160, 13020; 11550, 11120, 11070; 9180
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11589, 11629, 11711, 11752, 11793 approx., July 21 at 0052,
extremely distorted spurblobs out of RHC 11670 transmitter, at
intervals of ~41-42 kHz, unlike last time, safely further from the
other RHC fundamentals on 11760, 11800. Recheck at 0215 finds the
same, plus maybe trace on 11834. Strangely enough, no acknowledgment
of these bonus frequencies in Arnie`s latest ``official`` RHC
schedule, which also includes several errors we know are untrue.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7350, July 21 at 1334, no signal from RHC despite 1100-1500
schedule; uncomfortable spot, right smack dab amid Radios Martíes &
jamming on 7335 & 7365. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA. 6090, July 21 at 0252 open carrier S9+10/20 but vs HSNL;
0257-0300 plays nice 8?-note chime? interval signal, worth hearing
clearly in a better season or closer pickup, i.e. Radio Amhara; thank
you, PMS for keeping Anguilla off!

Or via the terrific website
http://intervalsignals.net/countries/ethiopia.htm
which has a huge list of clips, three of them naming Amhara, not clear
which one this be --- but none of them will play, all getting error
messages. Has something happened to this site? We haven`t heard from
David Kernick in quite some time. That was on IE, but worx OK on
Firefox. It`s this first one called Amhara Regional Radio, recorded
almost 11 years ago, and with Anguilla in the background:
http://intervalsignals.net/Files/eth-amhara_state_240909.m3u
Unfortunately, frequencies where recorded are not displayed.

BTW, here`s a good article on current situation in Ethiopia, by Ian
Bremmer in the latest issue of TIME:
https://time.com/5864684/ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-hachalu-hundessa/

BTW2, a new season of Bremmer`s Gzero World has just started on PBS:
https://www.gzeromedia.com/gzero-world-with-ian-bremmer/
but so far no sign of it on our OETA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 11560, July 21 at 0213, the wonderful AIR IS is playing,
S6-S8 with flutter, 0215 into unknown language. This transmission is
NOT in Jose Jacob`s latest schedule dated July 20:
https://qsl.net/vu2jos/es/time.htm
so apparently another service just resumed, but what? Original full
B-19 sked in WRTH 2020 showed Pashto at 0215-0300 via Bengaluru.
VU2JOS does show the evening Pushto on same from 1415.

Here`s the same IS, but only once:
http://intervalsignals.net/Files/ind-air_gos_210912.m3u
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-AM, July 21 at 0047, JBA carrier vs HSNL [high
storm noise level], surely not Chile but per
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69706.0.html
it`s Foxy AM, from 2351 to 0058*, maybe back on later (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW, July 21 at 0623 UT check, NDB PN at Ponca City
is still OFF (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, July 20 at 2201, no signal from VOT, just NSS RTTY
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2043 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue July 21 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, VG at UTwente SDR it`s aimed towards. Next:

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

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Trenton NJ, for a generous check in US funds on a US bank to

PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7730, UT Tue July 21 at 0038-0044, WRMI-13 segment in this
week`s AWR `Wavescan` is tribute to the late Allan Loudell, a
much-liked regular at the SWL Fests and Delaware broadcaster; with
various clips altho we don`t hear much from himself (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5886 & 5894 approx., July 21 at 0210, the WWCR-4 transmitter
on 5890 is flanked by some buzz peaks plus/minus ~4 kHz, maybe passing
on a defect in the program modulation, which at this hour is E. C.
Fulcher, TruthHouse Ministries rather than TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 1090, July 21 at 0601 UT, dead air from KAAY
Little Rock, just like happened months ago night after night, but had
not checked for it lately: automation fails to fill a news-hole.

This makes it easier to DX other 1090 stations, nulling KAAY. I am
expecting XEAU Monterrey NL as used to be primary and may be in mix
now, but also something in English, song refrain, ``No, he`s my
brother``, probably an hymn. Closest other candidates are KMXA Aurora
CO, but is it still ``regional Mexican`` as in radio-locator.com? and
500 watts at night? Or KEXS Excelsior Springs [Kansas City] MO, EWTN
English but zero watts at night? KEXS at 300 miles can make it here in
a quiet daytime. Or??? 0605 gospel music modulation comes back on from
the ESE, LR AR. KAAY may give us more DA chances, also perhaps at
other hourtops (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13972.7-USB, July 21 at 0050, 2-way in Spanish JBA, as
heard on this frequency before lately, a regular?

I wish some Mexican or other Latin American DXers, who could
understand these better and hear them as well or better, would pay
some attention and report what they are talking about, make
assumptions about what kind of unlicensed communications these are ---
but there is CERO interés, AFAIK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Espero que algunos colegas diexistas mexicanos o latinos, capaces de
comprender mejor a lo que digan, y tal vez sintonizar más fuerte,
presten atención a estas emisiones, y nos informen de qué se traten,
suponer de qué tipo sean estos contactos sin licencia; pero me parece
que existe ningún interés en este asunto (Guillermo Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** 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;

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:

http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html
http://www.w4uvh.net/RadioNova-QSL20.jpg

with this note:
``Thank you for your reception report, which is much appreciated.
Thanks for tuning in and we hope you enjoyed our “World Music #2”
show, which featured the music of Juaneco y Su Combo from Perú and
Radio Free Honduras. Your eQSL is attached. 73, RADIO NOVA`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA [non]. Thanks for eQSL from Texas Radio Shortwave for
6070 broadcast via Channel 292, GERMANY, #95 via:

with this note:
``Ahoy Matey Glenn – Third Mate Susan said “Until next time, remember
that land was created to provide a place for pirates to visit.”

You heard the inaugural Treasure Chest of Texas Music program and
here’s your limited edition eQSL. Thank you for publicizing our
broadcasts. We hope you’ll tune in again soon.

73 and Arrgghh. Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then
always be a pirate. Texas Radio Shortwave

Sailing into your ears from the Lone Star State`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** 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"
