Logs
** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, June 26 at 0557, VON missing from both
possible channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 kHz, June 26 at 0559 UT, ND beacon PN from Ponca City
is one again IDing in MCW with considerable pauses, rather than dead
air the last time checked. Overall 25 watt (?) signal seems weaker
than it had been, but storm noise levels are high (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 26 at 2246, VOT is on with Turkish music which
would have been enjoyable were it not for the choppy signal and noise
level, could not copy whether sign-off still claims to be the 1230 on
15450; cut off at 2255* so no spurious German today (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 11121-USB, Friday June 26 at 2300, fortnightly AF MARS
broadcast just barely audible, mostly uncopiable despite slow pace,
fade-outs, but originates (message, or transmission?) from Scott AFB,
Illinois. Three more chances so will try later: but next one at 2320
on 7324-USB is a no-show at least until 2323.

7324-USB, UT Sat June 27 at 0100, repeat of MARS broadcast starts
abruptly, despite AM carrier on 7325, which is Iran in Spanish until
0120. Why in the world would MARS pick such a frequency, and USB
instead of LSB, no less. Fortunately Iran is weaker and the R75 ANF
rids most of the het. So I take some notes, more detailed at the
start:

``MARS, MARS, this is MARS-COM. Do not answer. Authentication FGHEZQ
[fonetik]. 26 June 2020. HQ message #1-2``

Paragraph 1: July X, 2020, on or about 20 July-24 July, on-line
communications...

Paragraph 2: A-6 leadership changes, AFW4C and AFW0C

Paragraph 3: [missed: quick check of 11121-USB which is scheduled
duplicative at this hour only, to hear weaker different voice reading
presumed same text but not synchronized; where from? No callsign IDs
heard on either frequency]

Paragraph 4: COVID-19 - standard advice for coping.

Paragraph 5: more than 50 trainees are in the pipeline; mentor
volunteers needed

Paragraph 6: AF MARS Special Operations seeks volunteers

Paragraph 7: Thanks for support; from HQ ---

``Next broadcast will be on 10-11 July 2020; on 10 July at 2300z on
11121.0; 2320z on 7324.0; 11 July at 0100z on 11121.0 & 7324.0; 0120
on 7324.0. Supported by the 12th Air Force Military Support Squadron;
contact AFH1C [is that a callsign or an abbr.?]. End. This is
MARS-Com, out`` until 0109.

I did not try for the final repeat at 0120 on 7324. Thanks to Chuck
Gessner, W3ON, for notifying us on the WOR iog about this after the
previous biweekly broadcast, including that reception reports go to
reception@xcvrs.com (Glenn Hauser, USAF Ret., OK, WOR)

** U S A. No sporadic E FM DX captured June 26 despite a few chex when
there were scattered 100+ MHz MUFs on DXMaps; but at least 30 MHz, as
I log a few more beacons on the 10m hamband:

28251.5-CW, June 26 at 2145, long message and long pauses --- so you
could easily miss it in bandscanning; after several iterations -
minutes, managed at least to copy the ID: KE5JXC/B. It starts with
that, no VVV, or DE; and ends with figure 9, probably grid square.
Per WJ5O beacon roster, it`s:
``28.2515 KE5JXC C PECAN ISLAND, LOUISIANA # 5W, VERTICAL new 10 Sept
15`` --- ooh, I love pecans, but not the hassles of harvesting them
before the squirrels, blanching and cracking and extracting. Pecan
Island is a town of 400 less than 10 miles from the coast due south of
Alexandria; beware: distancefromto.net measures some place NW of Baton
Rouge. QRZ.com:
``KE5JXC USA flag, Arnold J Lemaire, 13630 La Hwy 35, Kaplan, LA 70548
-- 10 Meter Beacon 28.251.5 MHz CW, 5 watts output, Vertical @ 20' AGL
located in Grid EL39sp Pecan Island, LA``. Kaplan is about 25 miles
north of there, at 547 miles, so P.I. would be about 565 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

28224.5-CW, June 26 at 2153, K5GJR/B, ending with figure-7. It`s:
``28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL``
``K5GJR USA flag, Randy L Bates, Corpus Christi, TX 78415 USA
Hello All, I'm active on most bands 160-70cm's.I have a 10mtr beacon
that runs 24/7 at 28.224.5,consisting of a Radio Shack HTX100, putting
out 2.5 watts,using a Pico keyer kit I assembled, into a Antron A-99
vertical antenna at 40'.73s Randy k5gjr``. 957 km = 595 statute miles
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: confirmed first
WRMI broadcast, Friday June 26 at 2200 on 9955, poor but no jamming
audible.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 27 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5010 & 7780 VP in
storm noise; 5850 VG way over still audible storm noise on only beam
toward OK; I listen critically to whole thing; note a couple minor
upcuts in editing, but no background noise. Next:

Solstices & Equinoxes, by check in US funds on a US bank to

PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert.

** U S A. 9330, 7490, 6160, 5130, June 26 at 2312, all WBCQs are
absent, so bodes ill for `AAAWWW` in following hour.

7490.04, UT Sat June 27 at 0000, this WBCQ is back on, but poor in
storm noise, after FKB gospel huxter, then that commercial for SDRs
before WTO and AAAWWW starts. After noting that there is a problem
with 6160 & 5130 as if they are nowhere near Maine, A&A launch right
into Trump-forever commentary, so back to MSNBC for me. Recheck at
0022, 6159.90 is on now and about as poor as 7490.04, and 5130.0 is
detectable but unusable. 0051 recheck just in time to hear him admit
that they are back in ``Studio 9 in Deland of Fla`` --- even tho it`s
high summer, nor is it yet a repeat but live on ``26th of June, YOOL
2020``.

Current storm areas marring reception here are: NW TX/OK Panhandles;
but major line along the KS/CO border, and a long line across KS, S
IA, N IL, N IN, S MI, N OH as far as Cleveland. I`ve been listening
only on SW direct, not webcast or remotes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 26 at 0550, RV, 3 x 3945, in presumed Bislama,
poorly audible S4-S7 but better than it has been for several nights;
despite storm noise this high in the band from the Nebraska area; 0556
improving with ``island music``. JBA carrier on 7890 = 2 x 3945. I
don`t even bother to try the fundamental this early (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

Logs
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey June 27: 12820 & 12190 at 1325 vs high
local line noise level; at 1432 still 12190 but not 12820.

At 1435, 12835 and stronger 12880, both confirmed // 15110. (Almost?)
all Sound of Hope frequencies end in -0, consequently also the
jammers; so 12835 is unusual, and not in the Aoki/NDXC schedules.

At 1437, 13070 in Chinese, S3-S5; at 1440, 9200 JBA //; 1442, 10920 is
JBA and 11170, no others in the area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, June 27 at 0541, RHC English at S9+10/20,
undermodulated but sufficient. Could easily be a fundamental! But
really 2 x 6100, which is S9+30/40. Harmonic leakage must be combining
with enhanced propagation, such as sporadic E. Not a trace of RHC on
12000 or 12290, tho the other two 49mb frequencies are also still on
the air, 6000 & 6145. Stronger than anything else on 25m. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA [non]. 11990, Sat June 27 from 1626 I am monitoring via
UTwente, tuned to 11989.0-USB so I will hear a 1-kHz het when the
carrier come on. It does, at 1631, but only for a split/second and off
again. The same thing happens repeatedly for the next semihour, as I
note the times, once or twice a minute, but may have missed some as I
was simulistening online to `The Score` on KUCO-FM! Many repeated
attempts to turn on the transmitter but it goes right back off again:

1631, 1633, 1635, 1635, 1636, 1638, 1639, 1640, ... 1643, 1643, 1644,
1644, 1644, 1645, 1647, 1647, 1648, 1649, 1650, 1651, 1652, 1654,
1656, 1657, 1657 1658, 1659, 1700... That`s enough for me, so I
quit.

This is a new IRRS broadcast in Oromo for East Africa, which Ron
Norton publicized June 24 without a name or transmitter site as:

``11990 kHz (250 kW) from 1630-1730 UTC on Mon, Wed & Sat to East
Africa in Oromo language``

Meanwhile, Ivo Ivanov, very near the ``Secretbrod`` = Kostinbrod
transmitter site of Spaceline in Bulgaria, reported:

``NO SIGNAL at 1630 & 1634 UT on 11990, only QRM from 11985 Radio Free
Asia in Korean via Saipan. And nothing at 1656, congratulations for
SPL Secretbrod. Fair signal at 1707, but unknown broadcaster.``

So I resumed via UTwente at 1714. Now fairly good signal with
Horn-of-Africa music and talk in presumed Oromo. Listening closely to
sign-off at 1728, sounds like they mention Kenya, but maybe some other
word, and quick ID in passing something like ``Radio Otzutaki`` [or
Opuzaki??]. Fortunately Ivo posted a clip including that at 1:38 into;
what do you think?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXRlgX4_7s4&feature=youtu.be
along with two clips earlier via:

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2020/06/irrs-unknown-broadcaster-on-11990-khz.html

Meanwhile2, I sent my earlier obs of nothing but carrier attempts to
Ron Norton of NEXUS-IBA/IRRS and got this reply from Alfredo Cotroneo
in Ireland at 1736:

``Hi Glenn, We are on 11990 with 250 kW. Propagation is crazy today,
but we got reports from Russia. Antennas are pointing away from
Twente. Alfredo``

To whom I replied:

``Alfredo, I`m sure the signal failed before 1700 as described.
Retuned at 1714, then it was on steadily and sufficiently audible
until 1729*. Could you reveal the name of this broadcaster, maybe
website and/or contact info? Glenn`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, June 27 at 0544 presumed Kurdish music,
S5-S7, long pause, and more music. Denge Welat via FRANCE until 0600
switches to Pridnestrovye site per Aoki/NDXC. Also could be Turkish
jammer ``Radio Recep Erdogan``, but only one signal heard (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, June 27 at 0601, another day off for VON,
no signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: confirmed Saturday

** U S A. 17775-, Saturday June 27 at *1453, KVOH carrier on as I have
been waiting for it; 1455 music; 1458 English ID & IS; 1500 sign-on;
1501 hymn so no Wavescan? No, that`s the way WS starts this week, a DX
program without a constant themesong for sesquidecades. Signal is
S6-S9 and somewhat undermodulated. I want to check how it sound closer
to Carib target, but little or no signal at TWR Key West, Bonaire, DR
remotes, nor the one at Alexandria VA.

Therefore KVOH is failing to reach its intended audience. There is
plenty of single-hop HF sporadic E between Simi and here, MUF beyond
18 MHz, getting it here, but would require improbable double hop to
Carib, if not non-sporadic F2 prop which obviously is not funxional

** U S A. No sporadic E FM DX captured June 26 despite a few chex when
there were scattered 100+ MHz MUFs on DXMaps; but at least 30 MHz, as
I log a few more beacons on the 10m hamband:

28251.5-CW, June 26 at 2145, long message and long pauses --- so you
could easily miss it in bandscanning; after several iterations -
minutes, managed at least to copy the ID: KE5JXC/B. It starts with
that, no VVV, or DE; and ends with figure 9, probably grid square.
Per WJ5O beacon roster, it`s:
``28.2515 KE5JXC C PECAN ISLAND, LOUISIANA # 5W, VERTICAL new 10 Sept
15`` --- ooh, I love pecans, but not the hassles of harvesting them
before the squirrels, blanching and cracking and extracting. Pecan
Island is a town of 400 less than 10 miles from the coast due south of
Alexandria; beware: distancefromto.net measures some place NW of Baton
Rouge. QRZ.com:
``KE5JXC USA flag, Arnold J Lemaire, 13630 La Hwy 35, Kaplan, LA 70548
-- 10 Meter Beacon 28.251.5 MHz CW, 5 watts output, Vertical @ 20' AGL
located in Grid EL39sp Pecan Island, LA``. Kaplan is about 25 miles
north of there, at 547 miles, so P.I. would be about 565 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

28224.5-CW, June 26 at 2153, K5GJR/B, ending with figure-7. It`s:
``28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL``
``K5GJR USA flag, Randy L Bates, Corpus Christi, TX 78415 USA
Hello All, I'm active on most bands 160-70cm's.I have a 10mtr beacon
that runs 24/7 at 28.224.5,consisting of a Radio Shack HTX100, putting
out 2.5 watts,using a Pico keyer kit I assembled, into a Antron A-99
vertical antenna at 40'.73s Randy k5gjr``. 957 km = 595 statute miles

** U S A. 9330, 7490, 6160, 5130, June 26 at 2312, all WBCQs are
absent, so bodes ill for `AAAWWW` in following hour.

7490.04, UT Sat June 27 at 0000, this WBCQ is back on, but poor in
storm noise, after FKB gospel huxter, then that commercial for SDRs
before WTO and AAAWWW starts. After noting that there is a problem
with 6160 & 5130 as if they are nowhere near Maine, A&A launch right
into Trump-forever commentary, so back to MSNBC for me. Recheck at
0022, 6159.90 is on now and about as poor as 7490.04, and 5130.0 is
detectable but unusable. 0051 recheck just in time to hear him admit
that they are back in ``Studio 9 in Deland of Fla`` --- even tho it`s
high summer, nor is it yet a repeat but live on ``26th of June, YOOL
2020``.

Current storm areas marring reception here are: NW TX/OK Panhandles;
but major line along the KS/CO border, and a long line across KS, S
IA, N IL, N IN, S MI, N OH as far as Cleveland. I`ve been listening
only on SW direct, not webcast or remotes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 26 at 0550, RV, 3 x 3945, in presumed Bislama,
poorly audible S4-S7 but better than it has been for several nights;
despite storm noise this high in the band from the Nebraska area; 0556
improving with ``island music``. JBA carrier on 7890 = 2 x 3945. I
don`t even bother to try the fundamental this early (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
