Glenn Hauser logs December 31, 2022-January 1, 2023  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 02 2023

Logs
** CANADA [and non]. 1610 kHz, Jan 1, 2023 at 0223 UT, Spanish music
presumed CHHA Toronto, again with a het about 1610.65. This time it
appears to come from around my desktop not near the radio in another
room and even further from the LW antenna. IDs are sparse, but with
1610 reaching S9+10/20 at 0611, unusually I bring up the CHHA stream
and confirm it`s // a few seconds apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 14670 RC USB, Dec 31, 2022 at 2357, we choose to
greet the Universal New Year with CHU rather than WWV, heard past 0000
UT Jan 1, 2023; S9+10/20 here but still absent from 7850, very poor on
3330. At 0248 I notice what sounds like Cuban pulse jamming peaking
aboout 7835 and 7847, spurs? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Dec 31, 2022 at 2257, S9/+10 of dead air or maybe JBM,
toward end of the nominal 2200 hour in English, but fracassed more
often than not. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Jan 1, 2023 at 0810, only RHC still on and with weekly
Esperanto, S9/+10 but JBM under hum level. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDONESIA. 7290-, Jan 1, 2023, at 0807, JBA carrier presumed RRI
Nabire, even weaker than 7260 Vanuatu (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Jan 1, 2023 after 0700, no signal from R.
Kiribati, presumed off for another silent Sunday, and Gary Pence
agrees. Nor any other 9/kHz split carriers audible here (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5950, Sun Jan 1, 2023, The Mighty KBC at its new
time and station, WRMI relay. At 2201 it`s S9/+10 fading, hardly a
solid signal in mostly day-path from much closer transmitter than
ex-Germany 5960 over night-path at 00-02 Sundays. Direct reception
will improve during the bihour, but worsen from week to week thru
Summer Solstice as there is more and more light on the path NW from
FL. If stuck at same time competing with WBCQ musical programming,
should migrate to a higher band by A-23 if not sooner. Normally, WBCQ
could expect better reception but 7490 is still down leaving `Marion`s
Attic` on a substitute JBA 5130 carrier direct. Must get Maryland SDR
going to hear that at -52 Hz offset = 5129.948, S6/S7. By A-23 during
DST at earlied UT hour of 21, M`A on 7490 will again be unusable the
rest of season. Of course WBCQ ``7490`` webcast is still running with
5130 programming before R. Angela which is deliberately unwebbed;
while WRMI`s only stream is of 9955 programming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, Dec 31, 2022 immediately at 2326.8
tune-in, ``This is Outhouse Radio, without a doubt``, song, S7/S9,
still at 2355. Many more logs here and some SSTV captures of skull &
crossbones:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,107584.0.html

6925 USB, Dec 31, 2022 at 2355, hard rock at S7/S8 past 0000 UT
January 1, 2023. Many logs here as Sycko Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,107590.0.html

Also a JBA AM carrier on 6965 at 2355, nothing listed or reported
currently in HFU.

6935 USB, Jan 1, 2023 at 0132, now the only pirate on band (OPOB) is
here with music, S9. Still at 0211; DJ yelling at 0217; off at next
check 0247.
Many reports here of Zeke, or Zekey:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,107600.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.001+, Sunday Jan 1, 2023, S9+30 into
UTwente, several chex during the 2300 English hour always hear Turkish
music, so wonder if non-English feed instead? No, 2354 finally s/off
in English claiming this has been the 1330 broadcast on 12035! and a
bit of IS, 2356 restarting but cut off before can start German IDs;
uncovering XJPBS. Something`s awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2171 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
December 31 starting at 2032 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+20 groundwave
into nearby KiwiSDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 1 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9 into
Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 1 from 0424 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, S9+20
direct.

Also confirmed Sunday January 1 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323
kHz only, S9+10/20 into nearby Noale SDR, good way over musical CCI
from understation, England? Next:

0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ Area 51 6160v to WSW
0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v OR 5130v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Like our website, a noncommercial service for which financial support
is appreciated. Thanks this week to John Spicer for a contribution via
PayPal in US funds but not necessarily, to woradio at yahoo.com and
says: ``Thanks for keeping the hobby alive and your fine work on the
reports. Many thanks to the listeners that have contributed. Happy
Listening, John Spicer``

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

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun Jan 1 from 0100, Texas R SW via WRMI with NY
show of TX mx; courtesy ID by different voices at each break including
one from yours truly at 0112.5. Then a couple of early singles by
Willie Nelson. DJ is a YL voice which Terry has assured is a real
person. Listened to most of the 2-hour show.

15 kHz is not far enough away from 5935 WWCR: at 0135, inevitable
splash from dead Gene Scott, who is S9+40/50 and much louder mod than
WRMI only S9+10/20 and with lower mod. Also QRM from other side, Cuban
jamming against no República on 5955. By 0155 WWCR has diminished a
bit to only S9+30/40 as undead Pastor Melissa Scott is speaking less
loudly; but now there is SAH fading on 5950 from another carrier, but
no co-channel modulation detectable. Nothing else in Aoki, while EiBi
has Ethiopia from 0255 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130v, Jan 1, 2023 at 0251, WBCQ R. Angela, S8/9+10 last
part of Greek pirates show; 0300 NY special with excerpts of several
regular programs, some of which I have not caught on the complex
weekly-or-monthly schedule. At 0308 direct it`s S9/S8 with fades
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Jan 1, 2023 at 0550, S9+10/20 of dead air from WRMI,
ditto at 0553, 0606 chex and still 0812 when I finally QRT. WRMI-8 is
scheduled to quit at 0500, except in System E TOMBS grid dated TWO
YEARS AGO as all night and all day. Must have been too busy
celebrating at Okee to remember to turn off the transmitter. I wonder
how many $ per hour of wasted electrical fluid that cost (Glenn Hauser
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5882 & 5898 approx., Jan 1, 2023 at 0814, spurious artefacts
out of 5890 WWCR transmitter of TOMBS. I think this results from
defective dirty audio feed out of Walterboro, which stations need to
filter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Jan 1, 2023 at 0807, R. Vanuatu JBA here (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5051, open carrier I am still hearing at various night
times as of Jan 1, but weaker than before. Art Delibert had replied on
Dec 29:
``FYI, the carrier on 5051 is already fading in here -- first noted at
a very weak level when I tuned in at about 2042, but growing stronger.
FWIW, it's strongest with the SAL-12 antenna pointed north, but that
may not mean anything -- it may just be the direction from which I've
got the lowest local noise (which is fierce this time of year b/c of
holiday lights). Regards, Art Delibert, North Bethesda, MD`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. Re 9819.106, as heard on WOR 2171 tnx to Gary Pence, from
Ben Dawson of Hatfield-Dawson Consulting Engineers: ``Glenn, Thank you
for playing the recording of the station ID by R. Nove de Julho from
its shortwave transmission. The 100 kW RNJ. medium wave on 1600 uses
an antenna feed system that we designed and that Steve Lockwood and I
implemented. The MW antenna has much higher voltages than the local
design engineer predicted, and so we designed and Harris Broadcast
fabricated antenna tuning equipment that used techniques we would
normally have employed for a much higher power facility in order to
handle the voltages. Even our Brazilian engineering colleague was
unaware that RNJ was still operating the shortwave transmitter. Ben``

** CANADA [and non]. 1610, Dec 31 at 0737, VP algo not up to CHHA
Toronto`s usual quality; off or reduced power? Frequency worth
exploring for otherness: if not Montreal or US TIS, no Anguilla but a
few probably low-powered in Perú, Argentina; or N American pirates?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 7850 RCUSB, Dec 31 at 0725, NO signal from CHU: must be
off, not propped out since 6754 USB bears usual good S9+10 signal from
CHR, Trenton Military. 3330 CHU is still audible but rather weak,
S7/S9. At 1610, third CHU channel, 14670 is OK, unheard on 7850. What
does System Status show?
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
At 1757 UT Dec 31, all three ON, and no outages since May 30, 2022!
Don`t you believe it (Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** CUBA. 10080, Dec 31 at 0714, RHC Spanish again mistuned to second
harmonic of 5040 where there is only a JBA carrier. S9+10/20
overmodistorted.

5025, OTOH, Dec 31 at 0715, R. Rebelde is S9+20/30 on fundamental,
with NO harmonic on 10050; similar overmodistortion to 10080.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, Dec 31 at 0717, RHC Spanish S9+10 but undermodulated,
// 10080; At 0719, only other is 6100, S9+20 with good modulation in
Spanish, wrong language instead of English. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, Dec 31 at 1601* tuned in RHC ID just a few seconds
before cut off air. 13700 was already off well before 1600. What else?
By 1607, 11760 & much weaker 15140 still on as sked, but at 1608 so is
stronger S9+10 unsked 15230. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846 kHz, Dec 31 at 0730, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati. Only other 9/kHz split JBA carrier is 1017: Strongly suspect
A3Z, TONGA, already an hour+ past 0626 UT sunset at Nuku`alofa per
gaisma.com. By 1100 UT it shall be 2023 there; by 1000 UT on Xmas I

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 31 at 0722, VON at S6/S9 in presumed Fulfulde,
managing to modulate again tonight, altho under- (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2171 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday December 31 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+15/25 into Missouri
SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sat Dec 31 at 0500 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 5130, S9/+5
into Missouri SDR as it`s skipping over closer ones like NH, and
offset -21 Hz = 5129.979. But only the first minute! As dumps OFF the
air at 0501* and never resumes. Immediately I asked Uncle Bill, what
happened? ``Excellent question, going to check with Monticello. Your
whole show was loaded to the server so timer issue or human error
there`` and at 0522, ``I wouldn't expect us back tonite, skeleton crew
right now``.

Also confirmed Sat Dec 31 at 1700 on WRN webcast for North America.

** U S A. (7489.9v not), Dec 31 from 0100, WBCQ webcast still running
if not the primary SW transmitter, for `AAAWWW`. At first sounds like
several other people in studio but it`s just A&A. Yes, her mike is on!
Mentions that two staff at Monticello are under the weather, CE Tom,
and Jeff. Was one of them the electrocuted? Also TimTron but not clear
what ails him. Trimulcasting? 6160 & 5130 but not 7490 which failed:
there is a backup transmitter for that frequency but no staff there
who can hook it up. A&A are still in Florida.

But did Jason get the ``backup`` frequency 3265 on the air? Yes, at
0112 the NH SDR is getting it well, S8/S9, as usual way
off-frequency+plus and constantly varying, at several further chex:
+136/144/186/169/172 Hz, etc. At 0220 I try for it direct, but no
trace of it, already off. AW also says the SuperStition does not
always run 500 kW; if 300, 250 or even 100 is sufficient for a certain
target, power is reduced. Runs on high voltage which can kill you,
4160 X 3, and hundreds of amps.

Most of A&A`s discussion is lamenting everything going digital and
computer controlled, always causing problems when something goes
wrong, and not easily fixed like analog stuff used to be; not only in
radio, but cars, etc. A few anti-government remarx, but not heavily
insulting Democrats this week.

0134 datestamp as 30 of December, YOOLF 2022. 0138 recommendation to
avoid stress for better health, longer life. 0142 reads parts of two
Radio World articles about preserving AM radio, FCC guy addressing
farmers; and Sen. Markey on that subject. 0155 email. 0159 prayer, as
always running over so joining Hal Turner late about 0201 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130 minus 21 Hz = 5129.979, UT Sat Dec 31 at 0330, WBCQ
Radio Angela with `Greek Music Refuge`, S7 into Missouri SDR vs storm
crashes from northern Gulf of Mexico, off coasts of LA/MS/AL, and into
the FL panhandle. So not very good reception but enjoy the music tho
cannot understand the lyrix, nor the brief announcements in English by
Zach Liangas and Anastasia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330.00, Dec 31 at 0711 I can hardly believe my ears but
WBCQ-6 SuperStition with WLC Radio in English, is ON-frequency!! Not
measured, but tuning -1 kHz USB, pitch matches that of 9395 WRMI which
is never more than a few Hz off. No Cuban spy now. It`s S9+10/20 so
unlikely a substitute transmitter. But this does not last: next check
at 1557, measured 9329.809, S9+10 in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, Dec 31 at 0722, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu, still
here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2026 UT December 31

UNIDENTIFIED. 15360, Dec 31 at 1609, wailing at S8/9+10 with flutter,
unseems Christian, then talk in unknown language. Nothing in Big 3
schedules at this hour; AWR via Sri Lanka to Pakistan not scheduled
until 1630. AWR also sked later on 15360 via SL or Madagascar. Some
NYE extension? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
