Glenn Hauser logs April 1-2,, 2020  View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 02 2020

Logs
** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, April 1 circa 2015, WRMI relaying Prague in
Amerenglish somewhat distorted, but too weak to copy by 2040 whether
it`s still Radio Tirana --- which current sked shows is the only
remaining time, 2030 Mon-Thu and Sat, blown away from 0230 or 0130
repeat times. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 11880, April 1 at 1445, NO signal from CRI Plus,
English relay via CUBA, which started March 29 at 1400-1600, ex-15700
which has not come back either. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.
Nor anything on 9570, the pre-1400 Cuban relay in case forgot to QSY.
But we do hear CRI this hour on 13710 via EAST TURKISTAN: see SAUDI
ARABIA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COSTA RICA. 18127-USB, April 1 at 1437, Javier, TI2##, the OSOB in
contact from CR, call and name fonetik but too much fading to copy.
Maybe only one-letter suffix. Just to show that propagation is barely
open over this path (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 711.00 kHz, April 2 at 0025, presumed R. Rebelde
off-frequency hetting legitimate 710.00 kHz stations --- again and
also again the ~200/minute beat or 3.33 Hz from another 711 kHz
transmitter, in Cuba or somewhere. Now 31 minutes before LSS here of
0056 and only legit TA`s making it this early are 891 Algeria and much
weaker 936 presumed Morocco. Since 711 was first widely heard across
North America March 25, it seems everyone else quickly lost interest
in it/them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, April 1 at 2326, RHC English is S9+10/20 but now
distorted and hummy, much like 15140 has long been earlier in the day
including 1900 English. Tsk2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15730, April 1 at 2329, RHC already opening Brazuguese for
2330, now also distorted much like 11880 English. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, April 1 at 2015, Dengé Welat clandestine
via FRANCE, mostly talk in Kurdish or Turkish; by 2039 clear ID and
mostly music, enjoyable songs as long as I don`t understand the lyrix,
S7-S9 right up to 2100* cutoff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5165.04, April 2 at 0014, S7 JBA music, must be a
pirate; low weaker het from closer to 5165.00, maybe birdie. Depend on
hfunderground to clear it up: numerous logs here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,64931.0.html
as Radio Illuminati starting at 2133 April 1 until off at 0032 April
2. AFD is reputed to be a prime day for piracy, but only one I hear,
none on 6.9 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA [non]. 13710, April 1 at 1441, S9-S7 of Amerenglish,
must be CRI on NF for A-20, instead of SBC, which was a regular here
scheduled 15-18 until the end of B-19, and besides, it was always
off-frequency, unlike this, which runs this hour only, 500 kW,
ubiquitous 308-degree azimuth from Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, land of
brainwashing Uighurs. In fact with 11880 CUBA relay AWOL, it`s our
best CRI signal now. (Well, I should recheck for Sa`udi after 1457.)

Furthermore, am not hearing anything on 11820+ in our afternoons,
which was another Sa`udi regular at 18-23. As of latest HFCC March 30,
still not a single entry for ARS transmitters, nor even a blank space
in the schedules by Broadcasters or FMOs. Is anyone hearing Sa`udi on
SW, or have any access to a current schedule?

Ordinarily there would not have been many changes from previous
season. Here`s the B-19 schedule:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B19&broadc=ARS

Nothing after 2300, but B19 scheduled to start at 0200: 7410; from
0230: 9800; all these from 0300, mostly but not all in Arabic: 9580,
9675, 9835, 11710, 12025, 13650, 13660, 15170, 15220, 17760, 17895,
21665. Is anyone hearing any of these? Nothing at UTwente on 7410 by
0216 April 2. Jeff White says Sa`udis did not attend A-20 HFCC in KL
Malaysia, but have not withdrawn from the organisation (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 9585-, April 1 at 1448, noisy open carrier S7-S4,
presumably TWR which is scheduled to start at 1453 with
Malagasy/French service; slightly off-frequency minus. May well be
long-path, aimed ENE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 7780, April 1 at 2218, R. Taiwan in Spanish with
Chinese lesson, confirmed new WRMI relay toward Europe, but only fair
at UTwente SDR. Should be 2200-2230 only despite self-contradictory
WRMI grid as 2200-2300 on 7780 #1 transmission sked; RTI publicity via
Nino Marabello says they will be half-hours altho original Spanish may
be for an hour. Not officially starting until UT April 6.

5010 // 5800 // 7780, April 2 at 0200, RTI Spanish via three WRMI
frequencies contrary to schedule, repeating the ancient special about
World Radio Day which was Feb 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 1 at 2200, NO signal from VOT English, despite
this being the *only* transmission correctly announced in their
sign-on! RTTY from NAU Puerto Rico is however running until it stops
at 2210*, still no VOT, all as monitored at UTwente, let alone Enid.
That`s a 25% success rate so far for VOT in A-20. Something`s always
awry at Ankara, erroneous at Emirler.

9830, April 1 at 2347 recheck direct, now it`s on -- Turk music and
soon conveniently ID in German, Die Stimme der Türkei! So they
couldn`t get English going on time, but sometime since 2210 came on
the air including spurious 2300- hour in German, just like they used
to do far too often on 5960 at 0000 failing to turn that off after
English at its later winter hour. At 2352 runs the
multi-multi-language ID filler reel starting with English. But wait:
there`s more.

2353 IS keeps on going, and BTW, it sounds off-key in USB unless more
precisely tuned to 9830.04 or .05. 2356 starts inserting ID amid IS in
yet another language; 2359 I recognize it as Luso-Portuguese! Another
totally off-schedule SW transmission. April 2 at 0000:03, timesignal
ends 3 seconds late compared to WWV, and sign-on in Portuguese takes
2.5 minutes to list all the satellite parameters. Since they can`t get
their SW frequencies right in English, I shudder to think how they may
mangle all that Ku-band info. 0003 finally starts the notícias, still
on at 0011. But we don`t get another full hour; by 0024 recheck it`s
off. I can just imagine the sleepyrator at Emirler finally arousing.
Did management notice? WRTH 2020 shows NO VOT Portuguese at any hour
on SW; a rare treat. I hope some Portu-Brasilians caught it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non?]. 5000.0000, April 2 at 0018, checking WWV for
exact time compared to TURKEY, q.v., also the minute for propagation
info: SF=69, K=3, no disturbances past or future --- but with
extremely fast RTTY QRM on the plus side covering 5000-5004! It`s even
audible by tuning 5000-LSB. What`s that?!?! The little SF band is
sacrosanct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2027 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 1
from 2100:25 on WBCQ 7490.1v, VP in S9 local noise level; slightly
better even backward at far UTwente.

Also confirmed final SWBC, UT Thu April 2 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, good
at UTwente.

WOR 2028 should be downloadable by early UT Friday April 3, and first
SWBC at 2200 on WRMI 9955.

Thanks last week for financial support from Gerald T Pollard, Raleigh
NC, a generous seasonal check in US funds on a US bank, to Glenn
Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

Thanks this week for financial support from Robert Brunner via PayPal
to woradio at yahoo.com --- PP not necessarily in US funds

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

** U S A. Some WRMI observations UT Thursday April 2:
0030:
5950 // 9395, closing `Walking in Power` gospel huxter a bit late,
into music, Oldies
7730, Wavescan, first feature about Paraguay

0100: unchecked, except:
7780, WORLD OF RADIO 2027 confirmed, good at UTwente SDR

0130: via Alexandria SDR:
9395 // 5800, Prague in English; new time replacing Tirana; why?
9455, Hal Turner is back; was replaced by TOMBS last night
5850 // 5010, Oldies
7780, Wavescan on Paraguay

0200:
7780 // 5800 // 5010, RTI in Spanish on extra frequency, q.v.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 1 circa 2015, WJHR audible again with what
else; this time also neighbors 15825 WWCR, 15610 WEWN, 13845 WWCR and
perhaps also 15770 WRMI are getting sporadic-E boosts, the latter
relaying Prague in Amerenglish somewhat distorted, but too weak to
copy by 2040 whether it`s still Radio Tirana --- see ALBANIA [non]. DX
MAPS show numerous HF blobs above 16 MHz MUFs mostly over eastern USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs March 31-April 1, 2020  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 01 2020

Logs
** CANADA. 362-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0609 UT, dash and SB, 500 watt NDB
at Greater SudBury, Ontario.

326-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0616 UT, dash and YQK, 200 watt NDB at
Kenora, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 711 kHz, April 1 at 0033, off-frequency carrier
from presumed R. Rebelde still hetting 710 stations; also again with a
beat upon it of approx. 200/minute = 3.33 Hz, which I have been
assuming is from something in Eurafrica as TA carriers are just
starting to fade in before 0053 UT sunset here, only 891 and 936 at
first, presumed Algeria and Morocco. However if one Cuban can be
off-frequency, so can another. Is the beat still there much later at
night after TA fadeout time, before sunrise, and before anything from
DU? 1 kHz het could be a deliberate jamming tactic to be even more
off-putting than co-channel to ``wacky`` WAQI; but also annoying to
Rebelde`s own audience, but with plenty of alternatives (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13740, March 31 at 1337, RHC back here after having
changed to 13780 since March 12; why? It`s S9+20 and // 13700 also
strong. Something`s always wrong at RHC. This puts an end to the weak
leapfrogs I had heard between 13700 and 13780 on 13620 and 13860 ---
so now are there any 40 kHz apart? A JBA carrier on 13660 could be,
but none on 13780. At 1449, 13660 is still there but 13740 is off, so
13660 is something else:

A-20 HFCC shows something from UAE in Dari before 1400 on 13660; BBC
Somali, does it still exist? before 1500 via Uzbekistan on 13660
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 31 at 1443, CRI Plus relay is S9+10 but very
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7335 & 7365, April 1 at 0008, finally there is some
jamming audible against Radio Martí`s latest A-20 frequencies, but RM
is atop. There is also still jamming against vacant RM frequencies
7435 and 7355; not to be confused with RM providing its own
``jamming`` in the form of DRM noise 7340-7345-7350 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, March 31 at 0604, VON is on at S9+10/20 but JBM
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0611 UT, RG, allegedly 400 watt
NDB at Will Rogers World Airport, OKC; I am axually tuned to 348-USB,
and hearing it here instead of on 350, and despite 349 GW in
Mississippi betwixt. Several day and night chex for RG lately on 350
have been fruitless; erratic? With air travel drastically curtailed,
more and more beacons may be turned off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 15770, Mar 31 at 1334, JBA carrier from WRMI as
usual, totally off the side to the NW of this NE beam; sometimes by
afternoon it is nevertheless sufficient. This is the Tue 1300 hour for
a new `Encore` classical music test, but will it continue? Brice
reports good reports flooding in from Europe. Yes: it`s already added
to the WRMI skedgrid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 31 at 2201, third day of A-20, VOT finally
manages to get this transmission on air, English to North America
east, but VP on the PL-880 with clip on wire; by 2220 on the NRD-545
it`s only poor S6-S8; no RTTY QRM anyway, I assume like ex-5960 at
2300 it will be hit or miss (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 7275, April 1 at *0259, TRT carrier cuts on with IS and
English ID, VG via UTwente SDR, 5 + 1 timesignal; and sign on with
full English schedule. I copy it in detail, and sure enough there are
errors, which if typical, will last every day for the next 7 months of
A-20!! Something`s always awry at Ankara. In order cited:

``1830 on 9785 to Europe
2030 on 9620 to S Asia, Australia
2200 on 9830 to Europe and eastern USA, Canada
1930 on 15520 to Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Uzbekistan, etc.
0300 on 9515 to Europe and eastern USA, Canada
0600 on 6165 to ME, Arabian peninsula
Please note that the 23-00 and 04-05 broadcasts are pre-recorded``

Then into the Tuesday March 31 news, presumably recorded not later
than 2030, starring with what else? The COVID-19 toll.

Now all the errors; compared to their HFCC schedule at:
http://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A20&broadc=TRT

The first broadcast of the day is totally omitted, 1230 on 15450!
1930 on 15520 is really at 1630 UT!
1830 is really on 5945, not 9785!
2030 is really on 9875, not 9620!
2200 on 9830 is correct --- when on; how did that happen??
0300 is really on 7275 as I am hearing it, not 9515 as first planned!
0600 on 6165 is really at 0300 UT!

Duh, the 23-24 & 04-05 pre-recorded times are now at 22-23 & 03-04 as
just mentioned (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 349-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0610 UT, GW, 25-watt NDB at
Greenwood, Mississippi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Survey of what`s really on WRMI frequencies, UT April 1;
much of this at variance with partially updated A-20 skeds at
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs

0026:
9395 // 5950, `Jazz From the Left with Raoul` program ID and more
jazz; still at 0057 wrapping up with PayPal request.

5850, similar but not // jazz I at first think is same out of synch;
but at 0057 it`s Slovakia interviewing homeschool kid in English.

5800, SMTV, she got some award for something, bow-bow-bow

0100:
9395 // 5950, RAE opening multilingual hour in Spanish instead of
English, explaining COVID-19 quarantine situation disrupting
programming, but that transmissions via WRMI will stay as before;
about relaying LRA-1 870, Radio Nacional (but we don`t really hear it,
yet?), and that`s also being carried by other RN networx. There will
be some programas ``atemporales`` = evergreens. 0107 music break, 0108
into Italian no doubt with similar explanation; and six? more
languages to follow?

5800, SMTV still past 0110+; used to stop here at 0100

7780, music, oldies? BB ID for QSL requests at 0110

9455, Brother Scare, instead of Hal Turner

5850, ME music, World?

5010, Spanish, poor with LAH; ``adiós hasta la próxima semana``, and
R. Taiwán Intl s/off at 0128

0130:
9395 // 5950, music breaks and more RAE, Brazuguese

9455, Brother Scare instead of Hal Turner (but he is still on WBCQ
7490.08v, at 0136 discussing Yahweh with a caller)

5850, music, still World? // JBA 7780

5010, Prague in English

7730, La Rosa de Tokio, about UN Radio

9955, gospel huxter in English, jamming

0200: [as monitored via Alexandria VA KiwiSDR; above were direct]

9955, Spanish presumed Praga

9455, Brother Scare

9395 // 5950, Oldies

7780 // 5850, African music, World?

7730, song from somewhere; weak

7570, SMTV platitudes about EU

5800, off

5010, Spanish, sounds like RTI again

0230:
5010, Taiwan in Spanish again just closed, 2 or 3 notes of
``Sandunga`` and carrier off. Now on updated System H sked at 0100 on
5010, 0200 on 5010 & 5800, 2200 on 7780 = unconfirmed

5800, still off

5850 // much weaker 9395, Slovakia in English

5950, VP talk, probably SMTV

7570 // much weaker 7730, Brother Scare

7780, Ukraine in English

9455, Oldies

9955, Slovakia in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15745-15750-15755, March 31 at 1334, no signal from WINB DRM
noise where A-20 scheduled M-F at 11-17 UT; is off or not propagating,
daring MUF, 2+ MHz higher than ex-13685-13690-13695?

15770 WRMI & 15825 WWCR are the usual JBA carriers; still no WINB at
1450, when 15034-USB CHR Ontario nearby is poorly propagating. I
remember to rerecheck 15750 at 1659, just in time to hear WINB hybrid
signal weakly, off at 1700* sharp (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, March 31 at 2224, gospel huxter quite readable at
S7-S8, as WJHR is getting a sporadic-E boost. DX Map confirms lots of
Es over eastern US up to 52-60 MHz MUFs, altho no blob exactly between
us. Its incredibly more powerful neighbor 15610 WEWN manages only
S4-S5, hardly better than normal for it. I had noticed signs of
15555-USB earlier in the day, and BTW its nominal schedule ends at
2200* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Wed April 1 at 0109, WTWW-2 is off, so no hamshow
from Ted; but 5130 WBCQ is on for its W5KUB ham show, caller from
Wyoming about gardening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
