WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST update

Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update.
https://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) USA - WEWN: Updated label for link to frequencies as it now links
to current A-24 schedule [as expected, 12050 Spanish, 15610 English
which has been missing lately -gh]

2) USA - WINB: Updated links to frequency/programme pages

3) USA - WRMI: Updated links to WRMI frequency and programme page for
A-24 season

The next update is scheduled for late March. Best wishes and 73, Alan
Roe

** CUBA. 15140, March 14 at 1900, no signal from RHC English at summer
timing, only heard once so far, nor 11760. The Other Side:

``READ TODAY THE CUBA OF TOMORROW March 8, 2024 OPINION
Raúl Castro: the general in his defeat

Erratic policies, produced by fear and devoid of objectives, have been
the hallmarks of this Raulian era, the perfect culmination of a regime
that is close to disappearing and that no one will miss.

Rafaela Cruz, La Habana 07 Mar 2024 - 20:12 CET

If pathological cowardice is mixed with intellectual vacuity, the
result is a Raúl Castro. This general with more stars on his
epaulettes than shots fired in combat - his command on the Second
Front was a kind of camping trip - would border on the pathetic if it
were not for the fact that while he basks in Cuba's best cays, the
people are scraping and struggling just to eat.

His late brother — the main character responsible for the country's
ruin— although racking up a string of disasters sufficient to fill an
encyclopedia of failure, at least had the ability to survive by
prostituting himself politically, monetizing his virulent ideology,
and exporting his totalitarian method. But Raúl cannot even manage
that...

** CUBA [non]. R. Martí: see U S A 17680

** HAWAII [and non]. 10000-10004 approx., March 14 at 0636, noise
blast QRMs WWVH, must tune for it on LSB. The Standard Frequencies are
supposed to be protected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 14 at 0639, still nothing but noise blob,
presumably out of defective ORTM transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2234)

** U S A. 17865, March 14 from 1600, NO signal from Grimesland for R.
Martí. Will the 13-17 UT segment ever appear?

17680 open carrier is already on at 1653, S9+10/15 into UTwente. Very
rough start! 1700 still dead air. 1701 VOA WDC s/on with YDD - again
at 1702! after DA pause, at 1703 VOA WDC s/OFF. 1704 different s/off
with contact info for programming. 1704.5 VOA ID with YDD. 1705
disclaimer, no programming available, so music fill. Disclaimer
blaming on propagation conditions. Propagation OK, so resuming
programming. 1706 regrets there is no programming. 1707 VOA beginning
AFRTS! VOA finishing AFRTS. Dead air.

1708, finally R. Martí ID, and into program `La Libertad es Libro`,
featuring Ukrainian poetry in translation, but mostly discussing it.
1800 no ToH break. 1803 VOA Editorial: anti-Putin. 1808 back to
MartiNoticias. 1809 `Abriendo Espacios` women`s show. 1858 another VOA
Editorial. 2000 recheck, VOA editorial about Ukraine, again (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2234)

Comments from the WOR iog: Kai Ludwig, Germany: ``Nothing in HFCC so
far, and no publicity at the usual places either. "Abriendo Espacios"
as programme name is too generic for a web search without further
digging.

Is this Martí or rather VOA? Perhaps some kind of cooperation, but
still one could ask if this is a playout from Miami or Washington.

And why not from either Biblis or Lampertheim, which would provide
significantly better reception? They keep churning out 5.7 million
dollar each year for these meanwhile badly underused facilities. I
think I asked already some kind ago what kind of strategy this is, or
if they have any beyond "we always did it this way" at all.

So no one in Russia and Ukraine will listen to shortwave anymore, but
mercenaries from Cuba will? To a sub-standard signal, delivered over
almost 9,000 kilometres? Made my day. Kai Ludwig``

Bill Tilford, IN: ``It wasn't all that far back that Martí was
broadcasting DRM to Cuba. They are never given an Oinker Award but
have been a worthy candidate for years - an operation in search of a
mission. Personally, I think the most plausible explanation for their
existence is a place to hide part of the black budget. Just a theory,
but a good one methinks``

Tony Pavick, BC: ``I have a slightly noisy but fairly understandable
signal. Discussion with a university professor talking about writing a
diary about Ukraine to tell the world about what is happening.

This is a really fascinating undertaking. While some may question its
effectiveness, the thought of targeting deployed Cuban troops with R
Marti in some form where it won't be jammed as at home is intriguing.
In a sense this is a bit like Radio Atlántico del Sur and Argentina's
Liberty. Tony``

Another commented: ``It`s a joke`` (via WORLD OF RADIO 2234)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2233 monitoring: ``WRMI 9395 kHz,

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, March 14 at 0633 Korean, 0634 into English,
i.e. Supreme Master TV. Now at this hour and a few other WRMI blox
sked on two System J frequencies instead of just one. Its
unpredictable multi-lingual format with no translation captions
possible makes it quite a turnoff for radio listeners; besides its
cultish devotion to the SM, however laudable its environmental outlook
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 14 at 0638, R. Vanuatu is JBA vs noise level,
totalling S9+20; at least confirming it`s on as you never know when it
will vanish. Ron Howard logs it in detail most nights (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 28301 CW, March 13 at 2216, VVV DE VE3CKN/B -- and long
pauses between repeats. Strangely, the OBOB in a quick bandscan. WI5V
beacon list still inaccessible, but in the WJ5O list not updated since
2016y?: ``28.3002 VE3CKN ? GLOUCESTER, ONT, CANADA # ?,?
Un-coordinated beacon reported Dec 12``. But QRZ.com: ``VE3CKN Canada
flag Canada, Donald Greene, 139 CURTIS PVT, GLOUCESTER, ON K1V 7L7,

watts into a Butternut HF6V. Also a 40m beacon using a Vectronics 40m
CW Transmitter 1 watt and a CW IDer. 73' Don (ve3ckn at gmail . com)``
WTF,K? No offence, but I`ve always felt Gloucester be a rather ugly
name for any place; not even indexed in my Rand McNally. Where is it?
Just SE of Ottawa now absorbed into that more euphonious city (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15680, March 13 at 2159 open carrier S7/S9, 2200 KSDA AWR
English ID, following program in Dayak. Believe it or not, this is the
SSOB, or at least roughly equal to offside 15770 WRMI aimed NE. As to
be expected, HFCC shows 100 kW aimed WSW = 255 degrees, so how do they
manage such a signal over here? Ideal propagation pipeline? Hardly
anything else on band from PacAsia. Shows lang is Nij which per
readme at EiBi is: ``NJ Ngaju Dayak: Indonesia-Borneo (0.9m)[nij]``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 13 at 0651, non-DRM noiseblob again S9+25 and no
program audio from ORTM. Zacharias Liangas also monitored this today
via Canary SDR:

``5995 today a strong noise white type jammer kills reception of a
station airing stringed music. Sign off together with the noise at
0759. Listen here``
https://app.box.com/s/fyxetlzkl6sbi5nsmd5j0wvyopukcc98

On the recording both stop at the same time just before 0759, so I
still think the noise is from ORTM itself rather than external
``jamming`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1120, Mar 13 at 2214 UT, no signal, trying
the refurbished Wellbrook loop; nor on the internal shortwire, yet JBA
carrier daytime from NE or TX on 1110. Suspect KETU Catoosa = Tulsa
mkt in Spanish, be off. Licensed 10 KW D4, CH 7 kW. D4 means two
different patterns for day and critical hours. Never a bigsig here.
Day pattern favors N/S with a notch to the NW but we are close to due
west. CH pattern almost identical but a bit smaller, both also with a
notch toward KMOX. Recheck at 2305-2310 UT on two other radios, still
no KETU --- but with the DX-398 I do get a DF fix on the horrible line
noise level, totally different than the source a mile or so away that
OG&E repaired a few months ago. Then I`m getting a JBA 1120 carrier
from the direxion of KMOX. I reported KETU a lot in 2022y but not
2023y, yet I think it was mostly there last year. Nor have I found any
FCC news about it from IRCA in 2023 or 2024 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, K17JN-D, still misIDing due to someone`s stupid
typo as K17JI-D, March 13 at 1533 UT: I am bandscanning during
enhanced tropo reception. Signal here is diminished no doubt due to DX
interference, but as I go thru the channels this one displays as 17-3
3ABN-IN! Yet it`s black and silent. See my Feb 11 report in detail of
what`s on this transmitter, Enid`s only local TV signal. At that time
it was simply NO SIGNAL, not 3ABN-IN. I have no idea what sub-network
that indicate, but it`s obviously useless. Just like Feb 11, there
*is* a signal on 17-3 but it`s black and silent. And I can`t get the
3ABN-IN PSIP to display again.

Rabbitears.info is still mostly outdated for this, ignoring the update
I sent more than a month ago. FWIW, for 17-3 it says call sign is
SmrtLfS, sic cases, and Network/Programming of Hope Channel.

Meanwhile I was getting BAD signals on many of the `open` UHF channels
and some VHF. The only one decoding was usual RF 20, KQCW ``19`` Tulsa
market (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11915, March 13 at 1512, buzzroar from defective
transmitter, S6/S7 direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND [and non]. 9585, March 13 at 1518, FMish blob unreadable
but cadence of talk, atop JBA AM carrier, i.e. listed TWR in Malagasy
at 1455-1525 M-F but French on weekends. Probably remnant by longpath.
Blob could be spur of bigsig nearby? Modpeaks do not match blaster
9980 WWCR TOMBS. Could be of local origin? Then should be constant,
but nonesuch at 1727 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, March 13 at 2339, VOT music S9+30/45
into UTwente, so not off the air. Tnx to DST, 6pm CDT is a less
convenient time for me vs. PBS NewsHour, so I also missed tokEnglish
from Spain completely again. 2343, weekly `Sports Panorama`, mainly
stupid ballgame, football. Could not understand team names even if I
cared. 2349 `ABYS` promo, music. 2354 TRTWorld promo, s/off for the
1330 emission only, about 9 notes of IS before 2355* chopoff
uncovering XJRTV in Chinese, std. genocidal denunciations (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 17865, March 13 at *1649, continuous OTH radar
clickery cuts on. I have been monitoring this via UTwente since 1544,
as it`s on the GB-6 schedule for R. Martí, 250 kW, 45 degrees for
Ukraine at 13-17 UT, same parameters as 17680 at 17-20 -- but 17865
for that obviously not yet activated.

17680, March 13 at 1658, into UTwente, S9/+20 open carrier is on. I`m
distracted by other things at ToH but modulation starts at 1700 in
unknown language, not Spanish or Ukrainian, wrong program input! 1701
switches to Martinoticias. Again today all the content seems to be
about the Russian war on Ukraine, and Cuban involvement. At 1723
refers to this? being a podcast - rather than `live` programing like
for Cuba itself on usual lower bands.

Richard Langley has more info about that:

``On 16 February, there was an article in the Wall Street Journal
entitled "How Russia Recruits Soldiers From Cuba to Fight in Ukraine;
Eager to escape Communist island's poverty, Cubans are joining Russian
army." In that article, we find:

"Ambassador Ruslan Spirin, Ukraine's special representative to Latin
America and the Caribbean, said the government believes that about 400
Cubans are fighting in the country. 'We take it seriously,' he said.

"Others think the numbers go higher. Maryan Zablotskyi, a member of
the Ukrainian parliament who has studied the issue, estimates that
between 1,500 and 3,000 Cubans have enlisted as the island's
state-controlled economy crumbles."

The whole article is quite interesting but is behind a paywall unless
you have a WSJ subscription or access through a university library,
etc. -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2233 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening
Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees,
Dear Glenn: Update, confirming WOR #2233, WRMI:
5850, 0144 (55433-4), confirmed 0159, March 9 UTC 2024 [Sat]
9395, 2330, 2344, 2358 (45433), 2359, March 12 UTC 2024 [Tue]
(Lemke, Richard -AB) 73’s, Richard``

Confirmed Tuesday March 12 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+15/25 into
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed Wednesday March 13 at 1415 the secret 1400 on WRMI
9955, S7/9+5 direct. Last week March 6, before the one-hour-earlier
DSTimeshift, music aired instead after 1500, so I thought it was
canceled. Continues on A24 sked to show at 1400 Thursdays instead,
when it had not been airing at 1500.

Also confirmed Wednesday March 13 at 2035 the 2030, S9/+10 into
UTwente from SW Radio, Germany, 3975.002.

Before 2100 March 13, I asked about relying on the WBCQ 7490 play for
WOR, and how is reception so far into the daytime? No replies so far.
Here, not even tried, but into Maryland SDR it was sufficient S9/+10
on 7489.946. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW [ex-0230]
1730 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 3975

** U S A. 12160, March 13 at 1515, WWCR with gospelhuxters at S9+40
and a squeal on this transmitter, both the USB and LSB sides, evitable
by narrowing bandwidth (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WTWW: George McClintock informs me at 2040 March 13: 9475
tested OK today for 30 minutes, plans to start regular broadcasts
sometime next week, hours not set. Still messing with modulation
cards. 5085 will be full 100 kW for first time tonight. The sagging
transmission line has been raised so now safely out of reach (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 891 kHz, March 13 at 0648, only TA carrier this late
among lower spots checked such as 684, 711, 774, 855, is 891, surely
the 300/100 kW ALGERIA, but again it has a slow beat SAH signifying
one other station. Surely it`s too late into the dayside for any
others of considerable power in mwlist: Ethiopia, Iran, Lesotho,
Sudan, Turkey. Could Eurafricans check on this? Could there really be
a second synchro transmitter in Algeria? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** EGYPT. 9440v, Mar 12 at 2228, no signal from R Cairo into UTwente.
Earlier it had been reported active on 9900 during French. Something`s
always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21610-21615-21620, March 12 at 1556, DRM noise at S9 and
nothing else on 13m band. It`s TDF ISS spanning 1530/1900 per EiBi
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15215, March 12 at 2205, ``Silent Night`` in oriental
language, S0/S2, Vietnamese as sked this hour from KSDA. Could it be
the 7DA hint their saviour was really allegedly born in springtime,
not that pagan winter solstice nonsense? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 17630, March 12 at 1557, American English discussion of AI,
S7/S9 one of best signals on band. Therefore must be CRI as scheduled
via Bamako toward E Africa. So this keeps Mali on SW despite absence
lately of ORTM. The Malians ought to insist as part of the relay deal,
the ChiCom keep their own transmitter working properly (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, March 12 at 2300, VOT not off the air in English,
VG S9+35/45 into UTwente as usual M announcer signs on the 1330
broadcast -- only, which is also often the only one mentioned at
sign-off, and into news - or rather olds, no newer than 9.5 hours ago!
Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17680, after yesterday`s surprise appearance of R. Martí at
1939, checking earlier in the day March 12, not on before 1700, but on
by 1744 recheck, probably from 1700, VG S9+15/25 signal into UTwente.
It`s Spanish but all about Ukrussia rather than Cuba, first playing
satirical folk?song in Ukrainian or Russian with Putin in the lyrix.
1746 RM 1180 ID. 1747 phone interview about topic A. 1755 VOA sounder
and USG editorial, in Spanish, about you-know-what. 1800 contact info
on social nets, email, and `Abriendo Espacios` show opening, half an
hour about ``Cuban women`` but also really about Ukrussia, and lasts
until 1842 IDs again. UTwente is getting nothing but carriers at best
from 11860, 11930, 13820, as to be expected aimed at Cuba; checking
Maryland remote, again totally non-// programming to 17680.

Meanwhile a source at Grimesland says it`s a new service to reach
Cubans fighting for Russia in Ukraine -- volunteers, or convicts? --
as if they had time or inclination to listen to RM! 250 kW at 45
degrees. Further listening to 17680 is nothing but topic-A in Spanish.
1849 repeating the VOA editorial. Interviewing native-Spanish speaking
Ukrainians, 1857 a profesora Tatiana in Odesa; 2030 Anastasia Schmidt?
from Mikolaiv, with some accent. At 1856 had mentioned podcasts, and
that may be source of this audio, accounting for no breaks at
top-of-hours as to be expected on a `live` broadcast. Would not be
surprised at considerable repetition from hour to hour or day to day,
but would have to listen a lot more to determine that. 2034 a very
dramatic poem with music. 2036 discusses pronunciation of names
correctly in Ukrainian versions rather than Russian. 2043 the stirring
Ukrainian national anthem, not in Spanish. 2045 interview of Russlan
-- enumerating Russian losses in the war. 2100 VOA Yankee Doodle Dandy
s/ON, played twice, by mistake, pause, then 2102 VOA YDD s/OFF and
off*. So 17-21 UT daily? Or temporarily (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2233 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday March 12 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR, way

** U S A. 15555 USB, March 12 at 2159, WJHR s/off with contact info
accompanied by `Old Rugged Cross` tune, and off 2200. 9275 WMLK was
also still on at 2159 but goone when I got back to it after 2200
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 750 kHz, March 12 at 0638 UT, two weak sigs
mixing, one talk, one rock. Checking since WSB had been reported off.
They make a SAH of 40/minute = 0.67 Hz apart. If on at full 50 kW U1,
WSB should be dominant. Shortly the music morphs to talk? Some net
talkshows do have music breaks. But *0647.8 what must be WSB cuts on
with bigsig talking. From experience, I know the most likely other one
would be CKJH, ``Beach [sic] Radio`` in landlocked Melfort,
Saskatchewan, 25/25 kW U4 despite supposed to be direxional-north at
night. Many Canadian MW fail to protect US stations as licensed. For
once, the SAH fits neatly per mwoffsets, both measured last August:
CKJH on 749.9995, WSB on 750.0002, i.e. 0.7 Hz apart!

IRCA posts in reverse order leading up to this:

``DX Alert: WSB 750 off air, Rick Kenneally, 2:06pm #40306 Wow,
catching up on Slack it seems much more than Argentina was heard.
Sounds like an amazing night on 750.``

``Paul Crankshaw 11:30am #40304 WSB off at 0410 utc but back on after
a stutter at 0640. See my Jaguar plot of 750 kHz carriers - attached.
Paul, Troon, Scotland``

``Rick Kenneally 11:22am #40303 Oh exciting! Normally I record
overnight on the west wire. But it came down in the windstorm so I’m
recording overnight on the south wire. Should be interesting. Will
review this weekend. Thanks Mike. Rick, Wilton, CT``

``Paul B. Walker, Jr. 5:22am #40302 The engineer is doing work, i just
saw him make a one line off handed remark in a facbeook post on his
page "goign to work on the legendary AM tonight" when posting a pic of
an FM transmitter. Regards, Paul Walker "The Alaska Radio Nerd"``

``Mike Westfall 5:06am #40301 Check out 750 kHz. WSB suddenly dropped
of the air at about 0410 UTC and is still off. Argentina was heard
here with Tango music. -- Mike Westfall`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers, not a full 9/kHz
bandscan this late, but checking a few likelies, March 12 at 0636 UT:
only 711, surely WESTERN SAHARA; nothing on 774 or 855 Spain, 891
Algeria (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
