Logs
** ANDORRA [non]. 6180, Aug 7 at 1750, another R. Andorra revival is
underway, via 100 kW AUSTRIA, VG via UTwente. Too much else going on
now so I only check occasionally, mostly rock music so what is the
excitement about? 1752 talking in French. Never going to make it
direct to deep North America on such a schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Aug 7 around 1450, tune in via Brasil
remote, LRA36 is in progress, active again on Saturday after missing
the last two. After breakfast, listening again at 1528 ID, S4-S6,
usual pop music and frequent IDs past 1540; 1549 YL talking about the
bases or greeting them; 1549 OM ``es todo por hoy`` fake sign-off;
1551 Antártida song, immediately followed 1554 by more music; will it
be for another 3.5 hours like Wed? 1604 ``sign-on`` of `El Lejano Sur`
Wed program. About something happening on 30 June 1810. Manuel Méndez
soon explains that:

``Día de la Prefectura Naval Argentina 30 de junio --- El 30 de junio
de 1810, por decreto de la Primera Junta, redactado por Mariano
Moreno, el Coronel Martín Jacobo Thompson es nombrado primer Capitán
de Puerto de las Provincias Unidas del Río de la Plata. Este hito
histórico equivale al acta de nacimiento oficial de la actual
Prefectura, siendo por ello que el 30 de junio de cada año, es
conmemorado el Día de la Prefectura Naval Argentina
http://www.marambio.aq/diaprefecturanaval.html
Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain``

MM had been listening since 1410 direct. He keeps hearing it past
1734; as I do when checked at 1700, 1713, 1743, 1803, 1830; and still
at 2017 S3-S5 ID, gone by 2052 next check.

Not only running much longer now but on additional days of week.
Wojtek Zaremba, Poland, was also hearing it direct on THURSDAY, August
5 at 1915, And FRIDAY August 6 at 1913 as reported on HCDX (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, UT Sat Aug 7 at 0124, tuning in WRMI early
before WOR at 0130, RAE, Argentina to the World, in English is
wrapping up a program dated Tuesday July 13! I wonder if they can`t
keep producing new shows every week or day; or a mixup in playback, an
old show not overwritten? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Re decommissioning more and more LW/MW ND beacons, ```That
site also purports to explain why this ``modernization`` is being
undertaken, but is unclear to me and unconvincing. But then I am not a
pilot. ``Completion date of the project is planned for May 2024`` (via
Glenn Hauser, WOR)``` --- Walt Salnaniw, who commutes between Victoria
and Masset BC, replies:

``Glenn, I happen to be a pilot, and here's my take: Most pilots use
GPS for navigation with fancy Garmin units in the cockpit. I never
really did, preferring a map in my lap and nav aids (VOR and NDBs) to
help with navigation. I always enjoyed using NDBs, both the official
ones, and the unofficial (read AM stations on 530 to 1700 kHz) ones.
They were surprisingly useful and simple to use. The NDB signal when
heard would point directly to the station, so it was very easy to turn
the aircraft directly to the signal, and if you flew over it, it would
immediately swing 180 degrees. One could also triangulate one's
position by tuning several stations. VORs more or less worked the same
way, but in the VHF range. I always found them a bit more complicated
to use. I foresee the day when GPS satellites are disabled for natural
or man-made means, and then there'll be a whole lot of pilots who will
be utterly incapable of navigating! 73, Walt`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Aug 7 at 0622, RHC English with modulation somewhat
distorted but not the usual humbuzz. 6100 is OK; 6165 & 6000 are off
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. At 0214 UT Sat Aug 7 I posted to WOR iogroup:

``Cupid Radio on 7780 and 5800 now --- Hearing the TRSW relay of Neth
pirate Cupid Radio after 0200 UT Sat Aug 7 as publicized on 5800 only,
from WRMI, but rather poor here in noise level and local blobs. Say,
why wouldn`t it be also on 7780 since during this hour the two are
normally // as on UT Mondays for WOR at 0230?

Guess what, it IS also on 7780, which is much better here, S9+20/30,
which is abnormally strong for that frequency on their NE antenna.
Guess what2, 7570 is off again, and I bet 7780 is now on the NW
antenna instead. Glenn``

Also sent to TRSW and to Cupid with some more details for QSL:

``0205 announcement says has been on air for 29 years, 6265 or 15070
or 21460; 3-element beam antenna in any direxion for higher
frequencies; inverted V for 48 & 76 mb, 3-9 MHz range. 0208+ dance
music. 0221 homebrew transmitter of 75 watts 3-21 MHz. etc., more
transmitter and antenna info. My Receiver: R75, Antenna: 30m E-W
longwire. However, WRMI is so strong on 7780 that I get you well on
ATS-909 with a few meters of clip on wire 73, Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF
RADIO`` -- Also heard to the end with YROT theme of TRSW at 0258.

Cupid Radio replies: ``Hello Glenn, Thank you very much for the
reception report, too bad 5800 khz work out not that well last night.
Propagation have been not really helping so far, it seems the higher
bands are opening a bit now and then. Well it was lot of fun being
relayed by the transmitters of WRMI, I saw the video on the internet
from the station and it`s very impressive. The antenna park have been
guarded by alligators under the wires 🙂. I don`t know with how much
power I was being relayed, assume 5 kW or so. For this broadcast I
made a very rare QSL card, I hope you will like this one. Check out My
Facebook page for more information, movies, and all things what
happens here around the studio.
https://www.facebook.com/Cupid-Radio-Shortwave-1719305095057496
Kind Regards from The Netherlands, Cupid Radio``

O no, WRMI is rated 100 kW or 50, and surely close to that, not 5.

TRSW also replied:

``Ahoy Glenn - That sneaky Jeff White! Thanks for the tip. We wonder
how many others found the better signal on 7780 kHz. We hope you'll
send Cupid a report for 7780. He certainly won't be expecting it! He
has a great looking eQSL that would make a nice addition to your
collection. Sent from Cap'n Ric's iiPad``

Terry Colgan also replied: ``An email to Jeff White at radiomiami9
(at) gmail (dot) com asking him to keep TRSW on this freq might not be
amiss. According to TRSW's current program schedule, Europirate relays
on WRMI end their run on 5800 kHz at the end of August, but a second
series begins September 5 UTC on TRSW's "regular" frequency of 5950
kHz.

The new series runs through the end of November and airs at Midnight
UTC, and changes to 0100 UTC on November 14. Along with returning
stations like Radio Monique International and Cupid Radio, other
stations like the UK's Radio Clash and The Netherlands' Radio Pamela
join the lineup. It looks like the broadcast schedule hasn't been
finalized; there are three dates still available.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, Aug 7 at 0618, PN Ponca City is OFF (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.3, Aug 7 at 1850 UT on caradio, two stations, the
stronger one with dead air; by 1858 it`s KMZE, Z-92 Woodward, so the
other one would be the Wichita KS ESPN (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs August 6-7, 2021  View Printable Version 
Saturday, August 07 2021

Logs
** CANADA. ``Glenn, Concerning your comment that there are no other
advance-of-date decommissioning notices for Canadian beacons, there
actually is a new list of beacons to be decommissioned as of January
27, 2022. Scroll down to the bottom of the page at this link
https://www.navcanada.ca/en/air-traffic/navaid-modernization-program.aspx
to see the beacons to be decommissioned in Phase 7 of 12. Also, in
William Hepburn’s list, the higher-powered beacons are shown in caps,
with the highest powered ones shown in the largest font size. Steve
Howe, Saint Albans, VT``

That site also purports to explain why this ``modernization`` is being
undertaken, but is unclear to me and unconvincing. But then I am not a
pilot. ``Completion date of the project is planned for May 2024`` (via
Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, August 6 at 0559, RHC English is not on wrong frequency
5990; also same on 6100, better on 6165, much worse just hum on 6060.
By 0601, both 6000 and 5040 are off. See VANUATU. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6980-USB, August 6 at 2350 giving out a 302-area
code phone number; first thought it was a MARS net, but then for
call-ins to R. Free Vatever; DJ muses about forbidden Dungeons &
Dragons and plays such music. I did not copy the full phone number and
no one else reports it either. We may assume that 302 = Delaware is
not a clue to RFV real QTH. S6-S7 vs noise level. Many more logs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,84739.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, August 6 at 2353, pirate DJ talking about
a nest? S5-S6 vs noise level. Many logs here as Camelback Radio about
Vermont, not Arizona; a Zekey station:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,84740.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 6 at 2200 and later, no signal from VOT English
to N America, checked at Maryland SDR. I believe it was there
yesterday but an earlier day this week was also AWOL. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2098 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBCs on WRMI: UT Friday August 6 at 0130, VG on 5850 direct; 7780
poor in storm noise via UTwente but VG S9+10/20 into Virginia SDR.

Also confirmed Friday August 6 at 2030-2059 on IRRS Shortwave via AM
Italia, 918 kHz, Granze, VG via nearby Noale SDR.

Larry Will notifies us August 6: ``Area 51 WOR schedule change --- Hi
all, Since Herald of Truth left WBCQ on July 1, we are able to move
World of Radio and Hobart Radio International from Sundays at 2200 UTC
(6pm eastern) to Mondays at 0300 UTC (11pm eastern) on 6160. This
should be a better time slot for these programs. This change is
effective this weekend. Regards, Lw``

4790 is also being evaluated as a replacement for all Area 51
programming instead of 6160. I would say wait until fall/winter as it
will have a smaller coverage area and confront more noise during the
storm season. OTOH, it`s free of QubaRM unlike 6160 from 6165. Next:

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank
to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Aug 7 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`
sounds familiar, going to do a ``tutorial on freedom`` as if we need
that from him; usual opening fiddling with mikes, praising Angela`s
appearance, for his eyes only. And then about the 175th anniversary of
Monticello ``tomorrow``, so this indeed is a repeat of last week`s
show, and John Carver agrees; no further monitoring needed (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Aug 6 at 0608, WWCR with S9+30 of dead air from TOMBS
in English. AGAIN. Keeps happening around this time of night, but not
on other WWCR or WRMI frequencies. How nice that they are wasting
their watts but the programming is thus upgraded (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 10080, Aug 6 at 0610, no trace of R. Vanuatu harmonic from
5040 nor has anyone ever? reported it here. 5040 however has been
reported on air well past 0600, instead of 3945 which does harmonicize
on 7890 and 11835. It`s still too early to hear RV on 5040 even if on
and Cuba be off, which it is this date (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

MADAGASCAR. 5009.934 to 5009.917, Aug 5 at 0319, JBA carrier
measured with carrier offset fluxuating minus 66 to 83 Hz, per
Knoxville SDR in SAM mode, as I check for absent WRMI. RNM is
habitually offset-minus around this area, and should have been better
an hour earlier, if WRMI-14 were still off then rather than nominal
0300*.

First number after the town is watts power, then geo coordinates. If
there be some significance to which ones are in CAPS or not, I don`t
know what. Currently there are no other advance-of-date decomm notices
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13530 & 12880, Aug 5 at 1422, only CNR1 jammers in the 10-11
& 12-13 MHz areas are these, both S9/+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.934 to 5009.917, Aug 5 at 0319, JBA carrier
measured with carrier offset fluxuating minus 66 to 83 Hz, per
Knoxville SDR in SAM mode, as I check for absent WRMI. RNM is
habitually offset-minus around this area, and should have been better
an hour earlier, if WRMI-14 were still off then rather than nominal
0300* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, Aug 5 at 0637 check, 25-watt NDB in Ponca
City, PN, is off. Seems it comes and goes quite unpredictably, rather
than long absences (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 100.3, Aug 5 at 0057 UT, sporadic E FM DX check with some
high MUFs out there and some others DXing Okies not too far from me:
but only unusual I get on the caradio is some very weak Mexmx and
Spanish on this frequency. It is not fading much which is unlike Es
but also unlike typical fringe-area groundwave. Are there any SS
around here? Yes!

KCXR 100.3 TAFT OK USA Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN QUE BUENA TULSA 104.9
& 100.3 4.0 4.0 125.0 125.0 35-48-42 95-34-11

Taft is an insignificant town of 250 just west of Muskogee, not Tulsa.
The 104.9 is you guessed it a Tulsa translator, K285GW, but the WTFDA
db says it relays KXTD-1530, nor KCXR. And KCXR is not shown as
relaying anything. Or are all three really the same How-Good? The only
SS 100.3 in KS is a religious 100-watter way out in Ulysses, KQUI,
``cocky``? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. Some ND beacons reaudible with lessened storm and line
noise, besides some much further and stronger Canadians, q.v., Aug 5
at 0634-0641 UT:

417-MCW kHz, IY, Charles City IA, 25 watts
407-MCW kHz, HRU, Herington KS, 25 watts

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: slept thru Wed Aug 4 at 1030
on WRMI 5850; was it on air this week? And also missed checking the

hear them? I do check for the UT Thu Aug 5 at 0130 on WRMI 5010 ---
but it`s off the air! checked both at Bonaire and Knoxville. Also off
is 7570 while all other WRMIs are on, but 7730 is JBM. 7570 is still
TOMBSless, off at 0632.
