Logs
** CUBA. 13566, 13634, 13767, 13834, 13900 approx., Jan 14 at 1542,
spurblobs at 66-68 kHz intervals from RHC 13700. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Jan 14 at 2042, RHC in Brazuguese is overmodulated /
distorted; while 15140 in English is OK. Aoki says 2030 (``3020``) on
15370 is supposed to be in French; EiBi says English! except French on
Sundays; WRTH says French, daily, as does RHC`s own B-19 schedule.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Jan 14 at 2338, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but suptorted;
also with parasite weak spur carrier on 11840, but not enough audio to
match, and probably another on 11860 vs residual jamming. Strange that
I have never found an RHC frequency in the morning with plus/minus 10
kHz spurs, tho one would expect same transmitter to be in use other
than the tardes. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** IRELAND [non]. 7290, Tue Jan 14 at 1925, via UTwente SDR, IRRS with
much better signal than yesterday when WOR was JBA, but still not up
to par; about the Bushes involved in Iraq wars, clips of them
accompanied by banjo music; what program is this? 1934 check, now in
`Wavescan` as scheduled. Good but with ACI from 7295 CRI East
Turkistan. As it`s closing by 2000, sandwiched between CRIs on both
sides (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 710, Jan 14 at 0707, Mexican NA is playing until
0708 when no Spanish talk heard other than Rebelde Cuba peaking from
another angle; this being from WSW, which fits for the only NW Mexican
outlet, XEDP, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihua2 at local midnite, often heard
here despite listed night power of 100 watts vs day power 7000. IRCA
Log also shows it as 24 hours, and mentions it being off-frequency,
which was only part-time, and not heard askew here now or recently.
Considerable CCI too from English, likely Amarillo and KCMO, and
persistent 711 TA carrier het, prime suspect being 300 kW Morocco
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 5980, Jan 14 at 2352, JBA carrier from R. Chaski under Cuban
jamming against nothing else; until autocutoff at 2353:49*. Last check
was January 11 at 2353:55.5*, 6.5 seconds later, 3 days earlier,
averaging <2.2 seconds earlier, per (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15400, Tue Jan 14 at 1546, poor signal with
flutter, seems like English but very heavy accent I cannot lock onto.
It`s Radio Tamazuj, 250 kW, 150 degrees via VATICAN, mainly in Juba
Arabic per Observer, but which does have 10 minutes of English on
Tuesdays & Thursdays sometime during the 15-16 UT hour, per WRTH 2020
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 14 at 2332 check, VOT English to N America is
AWOL yet again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non}. 1090, Jan 14 at 0702 UT, KAAY Little Rock AR in
dead air again, until 0705 gospel music starts in nominal format.
Meanwhile, I hear the 1 kHz het from 1089 UK Talksport headed by a 400
kW with several synchros almost doubling that (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5915, Jan 14 at 2333, VP signal, maybe in French? But
CRI English via Kashgar to S Asia is registered; other possibilities
at this hour per EiBi, Zambia if all-night, and Myanmar, which would
not be in French either. Myanmarianese is rather distinctive (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs January 13-14, 2020  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 14 2020

Logs
** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, UT Tue Jan 14 at 0138, WRMI playing ``Onward
Christian Soldiers`` warmongering hymn as if it were crusading WHRI
--- fill music instead of RAE AAM relay in Spanish as scheduled from
0100. A new Monday program must have been produced but fails to make
it to air for unknown reason. One thing I know: the file name must be
exactly correct and in the proper System for the automation to put it
on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR [non]. In last report I meant to say B-19 rather than
A-19, fixed: HFCC B-19 has a wooden registration for EKAla, Sri Lanka
at 0100-0430 with 10 kW at 350 degrees across India on 6005 --- but
that site is long gone for YEARS! and indeed no longer mentioned in
the WRTH 2020 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, Jan 13 at 2002 UT, K202BY, Family Radio satellator
in Enid is still OFF, fortunately not cutting on QRM in the 88.0v area
either at the moment, allowing thru traces of KOSR Stillwater.

But a change of source is in the offing, per Doug Smith`s FCC info Jan
3 in the WTFDA Forum:

``OKLA Enid 88.3 K202BY XR 250w-V/80m, 36-23-57/97-52-48 (KJIL-99.1
Copeland, Kans. via satellite)``

KJIL is another gospel huxter closer-in with 25 relayers in OK, KS, CO
and even TX --- 22 of them translators, not including this one, per
WTFDA FM Database. I wonder if KJIL know that K202BY need heavy
repairs or replacement.

FCC FM Query still shows it owned by Family Radio, but also with a
recent Consummation Notice about transfer to --someoone--, no mention
of KJIL, as of Dec 17, 2019:

https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/cdbsmenu.hts?context=25&appn=101813959&formid=905&fac_num=21057

BTW, it shows the address for Family Stations not in Sacramento CA,
but Shenandoah IA, where they run KYFR 920.

88.3 is easily checked here as it`s the chosen feeder frequency for my
SW car radio. At same time there was an open carrier on 87.9 from
someone else`s feeder (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)


** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 13 from 2258 to 2328, I leave receiver on in vain
hope that VOT English to N America will come on better late than:
never. Something`s always wrong at Emirler. This probably means there
won`t be any extranebonus German hour either from 2400 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2016 monitoring: barely confirmed
Monday January 13 at 1919 the 1901 on IRRS 7290 via Romania(?) as
checked via UTwente SDR --- at first it seemed totally off rather than
usual bigsig, but tuning a step down in USB, carrier detected -- then
narrowing BW, synch, can barely recognize my intonation, but totally
unreadable. What changed, just propagation? Usual huge splash from CRI
East Turkistan 7295 unabated.

Also confirmed UT Wed Jan 14 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA. Next:
0900 UT Wednesday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7780, Mon Jan 13 at 2011, Russian VP on WRMI, probably only
time for that language, during `Radiopanorama` DX program. VP here but
maybe make it to Eurussia, aimed thataway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 7490.2v, UT Tue Jan 14 at 0144 check, WBCQ is
S6-S8, too poor and not enough to overcome noise level when we would
like to hear `From the Isle of Music` --- this is all too typical for
WBCQ reception. This time I compare it to other 7 MHz band signals:
7850, CHU S9+10
7780, WRMI S6-S8
7730, WRMIBS S9+10/20
7570, WRMIBS S9+10/20
7365, Marti Grimesland S9+50/60, no jamming audible
7355, Marti Grimesland S9+50, no jamming audible
7340, Romania Romanian S8-S9
7325, Romania English S9/S9+10
7315, WHRI Vietnam S9+10/20
7305, Vatican Grimesland, S9+20
All of these but CHU must be running a lot more power than this WBCQ,
and/or better positioned to serve deep North America. WBCQ is even
aimed thisaway unlike Grimesland, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 700, Jan 13 at 2004 UT on caradio, Dallas ad in English.
KHSE Wylie TX, one sesquikW day power, barely reaches here on daytime
groundwave when local noise quiet enough. NRC AM Log says format is
``Asian`` as Radio Caravan with IBOC. Website shows quite a staff, and
Hindi/Bollywood as well as Telugu:
https://www.radiocaravan.com/
$ tereo music stream autolaunches without permission, when I check at
0255 UT Jan 14. Soon announcement in English about upcoming events in
DFW. Shows include one Pakistani (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1040, Jan 13 at 2006 UT on caradio, Des Moines weather,
timecheck and WHO ID, which makes it here with residual daytime lowsun
skywave scarcely a sesquihour after local mean noon (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 1090, UT Mon Jan 13 at 0706 UT, another check of KAAY Little
Rock which has been haywire the past two nights at this time. Now,
it`s back to ``normal`` with well-modulated country gospel songs.
Maybe it had been plugged into totally mistuned satellite TV feeds
overnight, nohuman noticing? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, UT Mon Jan 13 at 0137 via WRMI, RAE Spanish
relay during DX program, recognized as same I was hearing 48 hours
earlier on UT Sat, about Bolivian and Peruvian non-SW stations. Seems
a regular repeat pattern. Several minutes before 0200 both nights,
gospel songs in English were playing, evidently filling out after a
RAE relay which is only 54 minutes long (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 6005, Jan 13 at 0330, carrier at S9+10 and some
undermodulated talk, 0333 song. Presume to be new frequency for R.
Tamazuj, ex-6015. Rocus De Joode, frequency manager of MGLOB relay
station, told us Jan 12 he was about to move away from Zanzibar`s
frequency which also starts at 0330, following a discussion about this
collision among WOR iog members Ron Howard, Wolfgang Bueschel, Tibor
Gaal, and Bill Bingham:

``Hello and Greetings from Madagascar, I noted underneath
correspondence. I was aware of the interference. So I plan to use 6005
kHz (10 kHz away) from tomorrow morning and see if this improves the
situation. According to band scans this should be a clear channel
between 0330 and 0430 UTC in the horn of Africa.

I want to note that my reason to use 6015 kHz was to stay close to
6020 kHz, which I used in the B18 season. However, since Tamazuj
extended with half an hour extra starting A19, I could not use this
anymore because or RRI from 0400 UTC onwards. And at the start of the
B19 season 6015 kHz was free to use with DOL [Zanzibar] with 50 kW in
Swahili reported to be off air.

Considering the extreme low SSN I even consider to swap 6015 kHz and
7315 kHz between MDC and ISS. Not decided yet. 73’s de Rocus @ MDC``

Wolfgang Bueschel and Bill Bingham agree about the two frequencies
now. HFCC A-19 has a wooden registration for EKAla, Sri Lanka at
0100-0430 with 10 kW at 350 degrees across India on 6005 --- but that
site is long gone for YEARS! and indeed no longer mentioned in the
WRTH 2020. BBC ASCENSION is on 6005 only at 0500-0700. Now the 6005
signal also has splatter from 6000 Cuba, despite that being
undermodulated when tuned directly to it. See ZANZIBAR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 6005 ex-6015, R. Tamazuj via MADAGASCAR: q.v.
Recheck at 0427 Jan 13, 6005 is off; must have just missed closing
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U A E. 5995.047, Jan 13 at 0337, JBA carrier off-frequency, a fit
for BBC Arabic via inaccurate DHA site. There is also a weaker carrier
closer to 5995.00 which is unaccounted for: the Korean radio war may
be on but surely not propagating from noontime there (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2016 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
January 12 after 2130 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair S5-S9.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 13 after 0130 on WRMI 7780, VP
S4-S6.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 13 at 0230 checked via UTwente SDR
only: 7780 good, 9395 poor. Also confirmed same time via WRN webcast
to North America at new URL of
http://shoutcast.wrn.org:8025/NAMAAP

Also confirmed from 0402 UT Mon Jan 13 on Area 51 webcast; at 0335
WBCQ 5130.0 was JBA and at 0425, JBA with me (nothing on 6160v, extra
transmitter totally dormant for months like 3265v; other WBCQs now:
9330.00 JBA carrier, 7490.07v S9+10 non-BS gospel huxter).

Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 13 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 after
classical music fill, good with trace of lite pulse jamming. Next:
0900 UT Monday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB
0930 UT Monday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB [another episode]
1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0900 UT Wednesday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ZANZIBAR. 6015, Jan 13 at 0330, VP S4-S6 signal seems also
undermodulated, presumably ZBC finally clear of Tamazuj-via-Madagascar
collision; as following a discussion among WOR group members, MGLOB
has just moved its 0330-0430 broadcast down to 6005; see MADAGASCAR.
Ron Howard had originally observed that on 6015, not only were
Zanzibar and Madagascar mixing but also PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi in Kazakh
// 4850 until its 0345*. At 0430 Jan 13 I have a JBA carrier alone on
6015, ZBC fading down (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
