Tuesday, January 24 2023

Logs
** ALGERIA. 17600, Jan 23 circa 1605, Qur`an from TDA. It seems the
new SWBCs are mostly if not totally Qur`aning, violating Separation of
Mosque and State; huh? Algeria is 98% Sunni and it`s the state
religion altho there is supposedly religious freedom otherwise. But
not officially named an ``Islamic Republic`` like several others; why
not? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 860, Jan 23 at 0735 UT, French Canadian atop KKOW and
anything else, presumably CJBC Toronto, of CBC/SRC`s ``Ici Première``
network; 1610 clear channel is always dominated by CHHA Toronto; but
740 now is still dom. by KRMG, not CFZM which can sometimes overcome.
However, on 860 there is one other CBC French on same network, CBKF-2
Saskatoon. It`s 10/10 kW U4, while CJBC is 50/50 kW U1; but SK
supposedly is direxional north both day and night. Saskatoon is only
73 miles further from Enid than Toronto (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 28197 CW, Jan 23 at 2314, VE7MTY/B, with 4
step/down/bips. This one in BC is getting to be very common, and don`t
always log it. Many other 10m beacons on band, I really don`t have
time to chase down and log in detail. Hearing some outside N America
would be neater.

28300 CW, Jan 23 at 2315, K6FRC/B is another regular, from California,
related to the same call in 13 MHz HIFER ISM band without the /B
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Jan 23 at 0747, S9+30 of dead air, obviously RHC
forgot to turn off much earlier, while all 6 MHz channels are gone.
Ivo Ivanov says on this date, 11760 went from Spanish to English at
0558, still English at 0659. Yes, 11760, not 11670 which has also been
caught on late in English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 23 at 1603, RHC is OFF one frequency which is
supposed to stay on all day; while 15230 is still on at S5/S7:
confused which transmitter to turn off? But by 1611, 15230 is also
off; leaving only 11760. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INTERNATIONAL VACUUM [non]. Pleased to find another chance to hear
`StarDate`, daily at 1831 UT on ``QXFM`` = KZQX-LP, Kilgore TX, via:
https://chalkhillcommunications.com/
Confirmed Jan 23, but not checked yet other listed times, daily 1340 &
2340 UT. Some states have zero or only one affiliate, but lots of TX:
https://stardate.org/radio/affiliates/TX
All times CST = UT -6 since none in El Paso. I still have not run
across it in random listening to KUCO since their programming got
jumbled. Brief ``module`` programs are most likely to be plugged in at
ToH news holes lacking any BBC news (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Jan 23 at 2307, token English from REE, after
news, marimba music and something about Guatemala. Altho S9+10/25 on
the meter, too much fading and noise for it to be worth listening as I
am not near the computer for changing to an east-coast remote. 11940 &
12030 also audible but no better, and still no signal on 11670.
Something`s incomplete at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003+, Jan 23 at 2301, VOT is S5/S9 direct
but undermodulated with hum, unusable; at 2330 I try UTwente where
it`s exactifrequed, S9+35/40, and OK with volumes turned up almost to
max. 2335-2338, `Did You Know That`, about old olive trees at
Mynos(?); also with the CCCCCCI. Something`s erroneous at Emirler.
It`s off before 2400 showing XJPBS also on +003 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2174 monitoring; next:
0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [canceled?]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v 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 Chris KC5IIE Krug, Tulsa OK, who
says, ``Thanks for your dedication to the SWL community, Glenn! Happy
New Year!`` with a contribution via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com -
in US funds but not necessarily.

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

** U S A. Re 9265VVV, WINB wobbling: ``Glenn, regarding WINB: The
wobbly transmitter is almost certainly the (very) old Continental
417B, as an ASI CE-50000WS is used for the DRM/datacasting service, as
described on the FCC station authorization.

What is ASI? Info here: ASI - Amplifier Systems, Inc. ampsystems.com

ASI makes RF generating equipment for industrial, scientific, and
research purposes, as well as communication/broadcasting. I had never
heard of them before WINB purchased one of their transmitters a few
years ago. Some of the FCC applications for other potential
datacasters mention transmitters from companies I am otherwise
unfamiliar with. Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas``

OK, but it seems WINB never broadcasts in AM and DRM at same time on
two frequencies, implying a single transmitter. Rather maybe it`s a
single antenna or feedline. Another check at 1920 January 23 into
Missouri SDR: SAM keeps jumping around between minus 5 and 22 Hz,
audibly there is popping; and behold the irregular waterfall, zoom in
upon it. Recheck circa 2300, wobbling not so bad but still worse than
``normal`` (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Jan 23 at 0746, R. Vanuatu in JBA music and talk;
11835 at 0748 achieves S5/S7 during talk probably Bislama. Both
harmonix of 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0020 UT January 24

Note: last report should have been subjected Jan 22-23 instead of
23-24! Sigh; I hope and trust no such errors appear in the body.

Logs
** ALGERIA. 9500, Jan 23 at 0144, Qur`an at S7/S9. EiBi shows Béchar
at 00-06. 15410 log, see CUBA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13680, Sunday January 22 at 2132, no signal from
RHC in Esperanto or any other languages altho had been caught here
weeks ago by Ivo Ivanov. Since then he found it on 15140, and that`s
also where I myself also now confirm it rather than the claimed 2330
on 15730 - altho I have not tried to unconfirm it then and there.
Sunday afternoon is supposed to be the second repeat = third airing,
and I`ve already gone over the errors about the first two. Now it`s
S5/S7, after RHC ID and IS from 2130 or 2131. 15140 supposedly quits
other days at 2130 after French. Makes better sense to extend it for a
weekly broadcast rather than pre-empt some other language as would
have been done at 2330. Something`s always wrong at RHC - not this,
but continuing not to announce the real time and frequency.

15140 is among very few signals on 19m now at 2142 Jan 22: just USAs
on 15555-USB, 15770 and 15825, nothing extracontinental except JBA
carrier on 15410, which would be Ouargla, ALGERIA (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1, sometime during the first hour of APM`s
`Performance Today` in the 21-22 UT hour Jan 22 via KUCO, host Fred
Child, who always conveys a sense of wonder and awe with every
announcement, mispronounces Galánta, as in Dances of Galánta by Zoltán
Kodály. He sees the acute accent on the middle A and figures that
means stress-it. But NO, not in Hungarian!

Sesquidecades ago I took R. Budapest`s language course, and somewhere
still have the literature; did not learn much vocabulary, but sure did
learn the fonetix, which comes in handy if you be a classical music
announcer. The accents on Hungarian words indicate the sound of the
vowel, not the stress. Let me quote something just found on the web:

``If you started to learn Hungarian, you already know that Hungarian
words are stressed in the first syllable. This is true until we
pronounce single words no matter how long they are: ég, kalap,
kerítés, olvasandó, kiszámíthatatlan. together. The words in a
sentence are not sliced up when we talk.``

Galánta is a small city now in Slovakia, formerly in Hungary. That`s
the way the Hungarians spell it. A, with no accent, means it`s
pronounced more like ``aw``. With accent, like ``ah``. Therefore:
GAW-lahn-taw, NOT gah-LAHN-tah! Note that composer Kodály is also
stressed initially, not penultimately as too often heard from
otherwise erudite? announcers, who have not bothered to learn the
fonetik schemes of languages they need to pronounce.

It seems the Slovax dispense with the accent but still have to stress
initial: ``In Slovak language the primary word stress is fixed on the
first syllable. The secondary word stress occurs in words with more
than 4 syllables and is fixed on the penultimate syllable. Czech and
Slovak both have a fixed stress placement on the first syllable of the
word.``

While I`m at it, some more L.L.: In proper Hungarian, surnames come
first, e.g. Bartók Béla; but even they seem not to insist upon it to
the rest of the world and those who do it `backwards` may be taken as
pedantic. BTW, those accents mean proper pronunciation is BORE-toke
BAY-law, not ``BAY-lah BAHR-tahk``. At least in this case, no one
seems inclined to stress -tók. Don`t we owe it as a courtesy to make
some effort to pronounce people`s names correctly, especially in
broadcasts?

In Hungarian the letter S, alone, is pronounced SH; while to pronounce
plain S, it`s spelt SZ. Contrary to Polish, where SZ is pronounced SH.
Further: ``Polish is a language with a fixed stress system with
primary stress on the penultimate syllable as a default (Wierzchowska,
1971; Comrie, 1976; Hayes, 1995), irrespective of the morphological
composition of a word.`` There`s a lot more complicated phonology and
orthography in Polish.

Another oddity at KUCO: `Wind & Rhythm`, ``for those who love band
music``, UT Mon Jan 23 at 0200 on 90.1 is playing Xmasmx! Obviously
intended for broadcast in 2022y as mentions someone who died ``earlier
this year`. Surely at least four more episodes have been produced and
availablized since December. Not so petty peeve: Xmasmx VERY overdone
in December if not November, but ignored the rest of the year. Why not
play some Xmasmx in March, or August for a change?? and something else
part of the time during The Season. WWJD? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5950, UT Mon Jan 23 at 0300, `Encore` via WRMI,
S9/+15 into Athens GA SDR: the same episode heard 26 hours earlier on
5850, but now the Playlist dated 21/1 has been corrected to match the
music we are hearing. BTW I am also hearing bit of pulse jamming
bleeding over from 5955 against nothing; and meant to mention last
night that there were also traces of Cuban jamming on 5850, where
there is absolutely no excuse for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.016, Sun Jan 22 at 2346, checking UTwente
whether VOT is not AWOL today? Yes, it`s not, S9+25/35 into UTwente
with somewhat undermod music; 2351 multi-lingual ID reel filler vs
CCCCCCI; 2352 s/off by OM instead of usual YL, not with full English
sked but as if this were the 1330 on 12035; a bit of IS until 2353*
uncovering EAST TURKISTAN. Note exact frequency offsets. VOT often +16
Hz but sometimes +2 Hz, different units? Once off, EAST TURKISTAN
Chinese but seems also with a third carrier displaying as 5960.012,
but that soon goes off leaving Xinjiang PBS as exactly .000 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2174 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday January 22 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia on 1323 kHz only,
S9+3/12 into Parma SDR, as the closest at Noale is too busy. Back on
Friday at 2130, besides Noale, 918 & 1323 were also somewhat audible
at UTwente in Holland.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 23 at 0058 just in time the 0030 on
WRMI 7730, S7/9+5 into Louisiana SDR. So also missed checking whether
the noise blast still covered the first 14 seconds, but bet it did.

Also confirmed from 0401 UT Monday January 23 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160
minus 63 Hz = 6159.937 into Maryland SDR, S6/S8 with inescapable ACI
de 6165 Cuba. Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [canceled?]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid, OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Sun Jan 22 at 2248, just as there was an anomaly on
WRMI Saturday during this semihour, so today `Wavescan` is on System H
15770 only, with not // music on 5850, and nothing on imaginary 7730.
WS is part of a talk about WEWN by Jerry Plummer at the 2022 NASB
meeting, shortly before he died unexpectedly: always amazed me how a
PhD would still sound like a hick. And still certainly no R. Tirana as
elsewhere on sked. However these three(?) are now shown as `World
Radio Network` at 2230-2300 on Mon-Thu; so what, pray tell, would that
be?

NAm program schedule for B22 shows, confusingly, not meshing with
WRMI:
22:00 One Decision (Sun)
22:00 Deutsche Welle (Mon-Fri)
22:00 Deutsche Welle (Sat)
22:30:00 Banns Radio International: Copenhagen Calling (Sat)
i.e. without explicitly specifying durations, the 2200 programs would
be one hour long except on Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Jan 22 at 2252, no signal from this WRMI, just pulse
jamming against nothing. Skedgrid shows 9955 supposed to resume from
System B Internet only at 2200 with on Sunday a gospel huxter. Not
propagation, as 9395 & 9455 are inbooming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Jan 22 at 2135, WLCR/WBCQ-6 is back on in English but
quite weak S7/S9. Allan has admitted they sometimes power down from
500 to 100 kW, but sounds even less and/or way offbeam to us (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265VVV, Jan 22 at 2134, WINB is JBM, S9 with terrible rapid
wobble in frequency, much worse than usual. Most obvious with BFO of
course, but also in AM reception. By 2256, modulation level of gospel
huxter is OK but still superwobble. Still so at 0143 recheck Jan 23.
Is that old transmitter about to explode? Something`s wreally wrong at
Red Lion! If same unit, wonder how that would affect DRM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1521 kHz, Jan 23 at 0147, JBA het against 1520 KOKC: the
only 9/kHz split audible in a full MW bandscan. Once upon a time would
have been easy to assume the 2000 kW from NW Sa`udi Arabia, but sked
long since curtailed to 1500-2230. There`s another hugie, 500 kW of
Russian from CRI Urumqi, East Turkistan, which is scheduled until
0200, and should still be darkness path. So then I check what UTwente
is getting: Spanish! That would be one 5 kW SER. Would think it should
hear some CRI unless maybe unfavorably direxional, but all unlikely to
deep North America. One other possibility: a domestic spoiler 1 kHz
off-frequency; which IIRC was suspected or IDed some years ago (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** COLOMBIA [non?]. 4940, Jan 22 after 0700, Spanish gospel huxter for
and probably from VENEZUELA is back with JBA signal, after missing
last night. Others were also hearing it earlier this evening (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. All RHC frequencies are OFF by 0709 Jan 22, and so is
Rebelde: 5025, 5040, 6000, 6060, 6100, 6165, 10050, 10080, 11670
vacant. Something`s always wrong at RHC, RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13668 & 13812 approx, Jan 22 at 1553, huge dirty FMish RHC
music spurblobs at S6/S8, with F# tone. As soon as I hit the lower one
bandscanning upward, I know that the fundamental must be wrong 13740
instead of 13700 whence morning spurblobs usually emanate. 13668 is
approx. peak of the mess but in FM mode it covers 20 kHz, 13660-13680.
However, no second-orders detected at plus/minus 144 kHz from 13740.

They all remain on air past 1606, including 1602 late opening of
weekly Esperanto // 11760 and 15140. Preceding Spanish is running
late: 1600 headlines, 1601 canned IS & ID claiming to continue until
1900 only on 11760 & 15140 & FM; 1602 start Esp`o, including canned
sign-on with all-wrong schedule at 1606: Sundays 0800 on 6100 despite
all 6 MHz frequencies gone much earlier; 1600 on 11760 - only despite
addition of 15140 years ago; 2330 on 15730, but really heard at 2130
on 13680, 15140 or somewhere. Somethings` always multiply wrong at
RHC. Esperanto service remains clueless about its own true schedule,
and keeps misstressing words like Ameriko (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. 21460 AM, Jan 22 at 1729, JBA carrier, tnx to many reports
on the WOR iog of Cupid Radio, Dutch pirate being heard in NAm,
starting with Andy Robins in SW Michigan at 1605. Lucas Bandura says
it went off at 1754* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15355, Jan 22 at 1935, S7/S9 of dead air from AWR in
Ibo/Igbo, again. Is anyone paying attention at least for a refund or
make-good? How about all the Nigerians pining to become 7DAs?
Something`s terribly wrong at Talata (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, Jan 21 at 2323, pirate music at S7. A few
minutes later, some IDs as WAVE Radio, per:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,108497.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880 USB, Jan 21 at 2324, sounds like a 2-way QSO,
at equal levels, talking about the Springfield, Mass. Armory station,
the TIS on 1710 kHz. Federal government stations are not licensed by
FCC, but NTIA. He had to file a FOIA request, and got a CDROM of such
stations. What`s this? These say Mix Radio International but at this
time carrying Andrew Yoder`s Hobby Radio show #3, interviewing Chris
Smolinski:

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sunday January 22 at 0100, `Encore`
classical music on WRMI is good into Missouri SDR, starting with a
harpsichord Gavotte by Rameau -- which does not match the start of
either Playlist on website dated Jan 14 & 21. So it`s ``wrong``
episode or PLs are wrong. Enjoyable hour, anyway. Brice is looking
into sorting this out. What will we hear and see at next emission, UT
Monday at 0300 on 5950? BTW, // 7730 at 0100 remains imaginary, but
will be all set if and when it`s ever restored (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 21 at 2327, VOT with quite a good signal direct,
S9/+20, but JBM music below big hum! Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2174 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
January 21 at 2230 on WRMI 15770, S9/S7 and better than noisy 5850
also reading S7/S9 -- BUT WOR is NOT on 5850, rather unID music show
or fill. This time only started recently. WRMI skedgrid for System H
still claims WOR on both plus imaginary 7730! However,
frequency/transmission sked atop shows Radio Tirana on all three, but
that has not been so for some? time, and those labels do not
necessarily apply to 7 days per week. It seems almost every week there
is some change without notice to WOR via WRMI.

Also confirmed 0030 UT Sunday January 22 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into
Maryland SDR, S9/+10 VG into Louisiana.

Also confirmed from 0411 UT Sunday January 22 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
VG S9+20 into nearby SDR on groundwave but some lightning crashes
audible, nearest/only storms around New Orleans into Mississippi.
Starting slightly early, despite previous airing 50 minutes late in
afternoon. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

** U S A. 15770, Sun Jan 22 at 1933, dead air at S7/S9 from WRMI --
no, there is some JBM I can recognize as Wagner, so probably the
`Music & Medicine` show. Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Jan 22 at 1937, no signal from WLCR/WBCQ-6. Wonder
what`s the matter now; it was on last night, and off-frequency-minus
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7890, Jan 22 at 0659, JBA carrier presumed R.
Vanuatu, 2 x 3945. Did not tune early enough to tell whether just
changed from 7260, or already here earlier. However, 11835 = 3 x 3945
hits S7/S9 with music past 0701, just about best ever here; 0703.8 ID
and more talk, news? Unfortunately it`s still unreadable. NZ 13755 is
VG S9+10/30. MUF/propagation at this hour remains severely variable
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
