Glenn Hauser logs March 6+, 2024  View Printable Version 
Thursday, March 07 2024

Logs
** CANADA. 15034 USB, March 6 at 1843, Trenton Military with a report
received from Shearwater, Shearwater. Had not run across it here nor
on night frequency 6754 USB, such as March 6 at 0729, for several
days, so wondering if gone again. May be irregular. At 2318 check, not
heard on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 6 at 2000, no signal from RHC. So much for that
English hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, March 6 at 2317, RHC only S2/S6 direct, sup/torted
talk presumed Spanish or maybe Portuguese; 13650 CRI `Portuguese`
music only is back to normal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11740-11780 approx., March 6 at 2319, RHC with wideband noise
again obviously out of the central 11760 transmitter reading S9+10/20
direct in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440-, March 6 at 2125, no signal into UTwente from R.
Cairo. So much for that English sesquihour. Something`s always amiss
at Abis, egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Mar 6 at 2300, token English from SNR, VG direct.
Amy previews main topic: jamón ibérico, going to visit a farm with a
herd of 120 special pigs. 2302 news, including scandal for the
socialist government about a 20 megaeuro contract for COVID masks;
some other scandal; drug runners killed two guardias civiles in Cádiz;
art exhibition. 2311 the pig story I care not to hear (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Wed Mar 6 at 2334, VOT English, S9+35/40 into
UTwente, commentary about Russia; 2340 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo;
2346 `Sports Panorama`, weekly, badax voiced, of zero interest. 2354
s/off as if the 1330 broadcast only; 2354.5 IS; 2356 restart IS with
German IDs; 2400 s/on extraneous German, and still running past 2425
with `Sports Panorama` ending, music. 2427.6* pull plug uncovering
XJRTV, std. denunciations. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28260 CW, March 6 at 1835, JBA beacon EEE VVV KC4QLP/B
copied after several passes. WI5V list is inaccessible; not in
outdated WJ5O list. RSGB list, Not Found either! but QRZ.com:

``KC4QLP USA flag USA, ROBERT W CARTER, 387 Inghams Mills Rd, Little
Falls, NY 13365, USA --- There is a new 10 meter beacon on the air
from here at 28.260 mhz. 10 watts TPO into a Sirio Tornado High Gain
5/8 Wave Base Antenna. The beacon operates on a continuous bases. QSL
via eQSL.cc only. Tech info can be found at
http://www.kc4qlp.com/beacon.html and at
https://www.qrz.com/db/KC4QLP/B ``

Lots more info on his multiple operations:
https://www.qrz.com/db/KC4QLP
I figured this would not be from Antarctica, where KC4 used to be the
exclusive? prefix for US bases. Now it could be anywhere CONUS not
even in the 4th call area! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2232 monitoring: confirmed UT
Wednesday March 6 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 into Maryland SDR.
From next week with DST, this shifts one real UT hour earlier to 2330
UT Tuesdays.

Not confirmed Wed Mar 6 at 1520 the secret 1500 on WRMI 9955, instead
some misc. undermodulated music, same as on webcast. Skedgrid always
showed this Thu at 1500 but was really on Wed instead of FAD, in Dec,
Jan, and most of Feb until last week.

At 1530 when RAE in French is sked, instead nothing but continuous
multilingual RAE IDs - like this slot has been for weeks, months - a
total loss! At 1600, 9955 via Maryland SDR goes to gospel huxter,
while webcast splits away to DW Africa, presumably from WRN, past 1630
but about 1637 cut to more misc. music fill; and at 1700 into NHK
Newsline. Presumably also from WRN but WRN IDs are never to be
heard.

BTW, I notified Jeff about missing Xmtr 2 and Tuesdays on the skedgrid
and says he has restored them, unknown how that could happen.

WOR 2232 confirmed Wednesday March 6 at 2030 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.001, S9/+15 into UTwente; following ADDX in German, but after
2000 there was ham news in Amerenglish.

Also confirmed Wednesday March 6 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490-, JBA direct
recognizable as me; slightly better 2227 during eclipse info, so is
correct episode. Due to imposition of DST March 10, from next week for
8 months will air one real hour earlier at 2100, further into daytime
absorption probably audible only via nearer remotes, webcast. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW [from next week: 0130]
1730 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 3975

Note: WRMI times on 9395 & 9955 shift one UT hour earlier from March
10 due to imposition of DST; while all others stay at same UT!

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated, by MO or
check in US funds on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK
73702.

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to:
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** YEMEN [non]. 11915, March 6 at 2320, S6/S7 of horrible noisebuzz
into UTwente, *just like* we heard until last week on 11820, and
before that on 11860, Sa`udi relay of Republic of Yemen Radio, since
the Houthis don`t allow it inside Yemen. I bet this be their new
chosen frequency, maybe running 18 hours a day, and indeed off after
2400 like 11820 had been, so what will it victimise here, per EiBi
listings?

On 11915 itself, nothing but CNR2 and RTI. 11920 nothing but one hour
a week of VORW via France! 11910, VOK and NHK, all of those on limited
skeds. At 2332 I check it into UTwente. In Sync mode if I punch in
11915 it displays 11914842.03 at S8. Rock steady while normal signals
wobble at least a little down to the hundredth of a Hz. If I step up
to 11920 and back to 11915, it then displays 11914840.44, again rock
steady. Down to 11910 and back up to 11915: 11915201.72 - apparently
the `lock` hits an exact spot within the noise bandwidth at the first
instant and stix to it!

At 0013 March 7 recheck, JBA signal on 11915 locking at UTwente but
then gone immediately. Maybe CNR2 gearing up for *0030 via as site,
which means Baoji-Sifangshan, Shaanxi, #724.

Then I see that Aoki, not EiBi already lists 11915: 1755-2257 R. Saudi
in Arabic from Riyadh, daily. Surely same transmitter but we can`t be
positive the inaudible programming be Yemenish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0104 UT March 7

Glenn Hauser logs March 5, 2024  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, March 06 2024

Logs
Note: previous report should have been dated March 3-4-5, 2024

** CUBA. 5025, March 5 at 0731, R. Rebelde with S9+40/50! of dead air
in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, March 5 at 2259, checking direct, RHC is off, but so
is 13650 the CRI music channel which was on 15230 yesterday. 15140 is
however running late with RHC Spanish, S6/S8 with squeal.

Next check via Maryland SDR at 2338: 15230 is on at weak S5/S7 but
only traces of talkmod at peaks. 15140 now off. 13650 Chimx now on,
S7/S9. 11760 RHC Spanish S9/+10. Somethings` always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.9, March 5 at 1638, JBA carrier, implying the
pirate Hikari FM is still running from Sonora or Arizona on its
signature off-frequency.

As Rick Barton reports from AZ: ``Pirate --- 2/25, 1730, 11515/AM
[nominal]. Another day of Hikari FM. Very unusual sounding music, just
under S9 but mostly undermodulated. During frequent rechecks (incl.
1835), playing more J-pop sounding stuff, like often heard on Radio
Nikkei 2. Heard most of the day on numerous rechecks. Logged Fair/Good
on Drake SW8, Slinky (20 ft.) -- (Barton-AZ)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, March 5 at 2303, S9 but JBA carrier direct
vs noise level; and 9610 slightly stronger JBA carrier: which is VOT
today? At 2316 I try UTwente: it`s 5960.002 when measured, ending
news, into `Review of the Turkish Press`, S9+35/45 with constant 6CI
understation. 2319 some nice choral music. 2326 `That`s Why` repeat
about internet instead of libraries, voiced by the badax. 2331 `Weekly
Commentary` again read by the badax so a total loss, one name of
penner maybe Hussein. 2342 ``A-B-Y-S`` promo. 2348 `Turkey`s Geomarked
[sic] Products` about meatballs made from sheep at a town in central
Anatolia whose name I cannot understand, and it isn`t even spelt!
Something`s always awry at Ankara. 2351 s/off with all-wrong times.
2353 IS. Chopoff just before 2356* restart so no German today.
Uncovers XJRTV at S9/+10 quite sufficient once it`s not blocked, std.
denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 293 MCW kHz, March 5 at 1643 UT in daytime groundwave, FBY,
ND beacon at FairBurY, Nebraska, is JBA vs S7 noise level. 25 watts
per dxinfocentre.com, 50 watts per RNA. Always pleased with this from
a second-adjacent state, even when some OK NDBs are not copiable
except local 341 EI Enid and 515 PN Ponca. As for first-adjacent KS,
now only 332 IC, 25 watts from wIChita, and 407 HRU 25 watts from
Herington. Can`t pull 395 CA, 25 watts from Newton as sometimes
possible, as HNL at this spot is S9. Powers above per RNA list;
dxinfocentre.com lists 332 IC as 400 watts, but I`ll believe it`s
really 25 as at night it`s hard to detect vs 1000 watt QT Thunder Bay
ON (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2232 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday March 5 at 0342 the 0330 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 and noisy into
Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday March 5 at 1400 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 direct, no
jamming audible. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1200 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1230 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB
[previous #2231][SW suspended but still streamed?]
1500 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
[not Thu as on sked but Wed confirmed every week this year except Feb
28]
2030 UT Wednesday SW Radio, Germany 3975
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW,
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1730 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 3975

Note: WRMI times on 9395 & 9955 shift one UT hour earlier from March
10 due to imposition of DST; while all others stay at same UT!

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated, by MO or
check in US funds on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK
73702.

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to:
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955 anomalies of WRMI: March 5 at 0807 is off the air,
normally all-night with TOMBS, while 9395 & 9455 are propagating. At
1630, 9955 is still on but JBA, gone by 1640 recheck. Turnoff time for
this varies widely. WRMI-3 skedgrid shows 9955 daily until 1600 with
RAE French at 1530, but whenever checked it`s been nothing but
continuous ID fillers; and shows extended to 1700 only on Sats with
TOMBS. However, System B program sked shows until 1630 switch to
internet only with WRN after 1600 daily except TOMBS on Sat. And this
does not match the even more outdated System E = TOMBS sked.
Furthermore, the Xmtr 3 sked of 9955 now shows at 0500-1100 it`s only
Sat & Sun with TOMBS, a recent change? if correct.

Note there will be further confusion from March 10 with the imposition
of DST. This causes some WRMI Systems to move programming one real
hour earlier, staying on ET = EDT instead of EST, while others stay on
UT with no changes. Note that this affects Systems, whatever
transmitter/frequency they may employ at any particular time.

Also we note that there is now NO column for Transmitter 2 which has
been eliminated completely. And transmitter 1 on 7730 for Latin
America is totally blank 24 hours. Nor is 7730 assigned to any other
Xmtr. So is it off the air or not? 7730 still shows for numerous
program sked entries in several Systems including E = TOMBS. Seems
like I tuned across it just last night. Very unfortunately, WRMI skeds
are always rife with inconsistencies, self-contradixions.

Oh2, looking at the skedgrids as displaying at 1900 UT March 5, the
TUESDAY column is MISSING FROM ALL SYSTEMS!!! Just like the
Transmitter #2 column. Still so at 2335. What a mess - until I checked
the headers, I thought WOR at 1500 on 9955 was finally displaying
correctly on Wednesday instead of alleged Thursday. It`s now in the
third column from the left, but that`s Thu since there is no Tue for
the second (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
