Glenn Hauser logs September 12, 2020  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 12 2020

Logs
** ALGERIA. 891, Sept 12 at 0421, big het upon WLS 890, and can barely
separate a bit of audio, presumed this usual bigsig from RTA, and
setting me off on a complete TA bandscan, see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sept 12 at 1825, and a couple hours
earlier, no signal at Brasil remote from LRA-36 nor any expected this
week, but the multi-hour Spanish/German/English special from RAE Bs.
As. has been rescheduled for Sat Sept 19, weather permitting (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA, 15034-USB, Sept 12 at 1421, VOLMET from CHR, Trenton
Military, Ontario, with ``no report received`` from Trenton itself and
several other locales. Usual situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 12 at 0636, RHC English suptorted here during a
COVID-19 PSA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 774, Sept 12 from 1139: first check as always of 774, on the
PL-880 finds a considerable carrier from the NW, no doubt NHK, so
worth a complete bandscan on the R75 with E-W longwire before going
back to sleep: there is some audio on both 774 and 747 from NHK2 500
kW superpowers, JOUB Akita and JOIB Sapporo, respectively, which may
be decommissioned next year; at first seem Japanese, but careful,
these include various language lessons. At 1159 I`m back on 774 but
cannot make out any distinctive 1200 timesignal. At 1207, 747 still
audible with talk; sunrise here today 1212 UT. See UNIDENTIFIED for
more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 684, Sept 12 at 0424, among numerous TA carriers, two are
beating here with some music audio, presumed RNE as usual (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
Sept 12 at 1148 the 1130 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 over some jamming
audible. Several weeks ago this was replaced by a gospel huxter
scheduled for same time on Sunday, and believe it happened more than
once, so I gave up on this airing and removed it from my schedules,
despite its remaining on the WRMI skedgrid. Let`s hope it stix now.

Resnoozing, missed checking 1300 Sat on WRMI 15770. Did anyone hear
it? Next:
1930vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
2300 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 to NE
0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0400]

0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800-NEW to SSE
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Thanks this week for financial support from Robert W Gruska,
Glendale NY, who has been contributing periodically since at
least 2009; a PMO to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702;
if by check please in US funds on a US bank.

Financial support may alternatively be sent via PayPal to
woradio at yahoo.com - not necessarily US funds as PP will convert
(Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** U S A. 7570 // << 7730, Sept 12 at 1437, extended Sabbathday TOMBS
WRMI broadcast is strangely reversed in signal strength, as 7570 is
the one closest to our direxion and normally stronger (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1360, Sept 12 at 0357 UT standing by for the much heralded 6
hour DX test from WNJC, Washington Twp., NJ, wherever that is; address
is in Sewell, which is about 10 miles south of Camden, on Egg Harbor
Road, but that`s nowhere near Sewell. Egg Harbor strangely enough is
not on the coast but about 15 miles inland from Atlantic City on the
Expwy. Would you believe that there are five different Wash Twps in
NJ, each in a different county?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Township,_New_Jersey

Washington Township, Bergen County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Burlington County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Morris County, New Jersey
Washington Township, Warren County, New Jersey

Gloucester County is the one inhabited by Sewell. and that`s the one
just south of Camden, i.e. Philadelphia PA.

Quite a pileup of signals, almost like a graveyard. Coverage maps show
1360 crammed with stations east of the Mississippi, but rather sparse
to the west, yet with three in relatively small Iowa. None in OK, the
nearest to us KPHN EWTN El Dorado KS, barely audible daytime. NRC AM
log has a total of 61 USA on 1360, even a second one in NJ,
Newton/Paterson.

One signal slightly above the others mentions Iowa, and at 0400 ID for
KSCJ Sioux City 1360 and FM. It`s U2 5/5 kW supposedly with a notch
null thisaway in a 4-way narrow X pattern. No sign of CW or other DX
test sounds thru the KSCJ net news until 0404; rechex at 0541 and 0627
also fruitless. Longer listening periods are required, and there will
be another six hours UT Sunday at 0400-1000, with greater power. I
wonder how far west WNJC made it? James Niven near Austin TX, got it
by recording and then reviewing the first hour, 2296 km away vs only
2019 for me. East? Arctic Norway but that`s to a super-DXing setup.
I`m on the R75 with E-W 100-ft longwire which should favor NJ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 12 from 0421,
since I am not getting merely WNJC 1360 DX test; starting with a big
het upon WLS 890, from 891, no doubt Algeria with traces of audio. On
the R75 with E-W longwire. Then at 9 kHz intervals stepping 1 kHz
below each TA channel, some of them with a beat from at least (2)
signals:

531, 558(2), 567, 576, 585, 603(2), [not 621], 639(2), 657, *684(2),
693, 729, 774(2), 837, 855(2), 882, *891, 909, 936(2), 999(2), 1017,
1026?, 1044, 1053*, 1089, 1107(2), 1125, 1152, 1215, 1305(2), 1566,
1575; and no doubt domestic, 1710(2). *are strongest ones and with
audio separately entered under SPAIN, as well as ALGERIA (Glenn
Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 12 from 1139:
first check as always of 774, on the PL-880 finds a considerable
carrier from the NW, no doubt NHK, so worth a complete bandscan on the
R75 with E-W longwire before going back to sleep: there is some audio
on both 774 and 747 from NHK2 superpowers which may be decommissioned
next year, at first seems Japanese, but careful, these include various
language lessons. Also carriers: 828, 891(2), 972, 1053, 1107, 1566.

>From 1205 another 9-kHz bandscan, axually tuning downward: 567, 657,
693, 747, 774, 828(2), 873. Sunrise here: 1212 UT. I wonder what the
other 828 is besides JOBB Osaka? There`s a 50 kW in Beijing and
several lesser/further Chinese; and 50 kW in Vietnam. See also JAPAN.

This correlates with simulmonitoring by my neighbor, as to IRCA:

`Oklahoma TP DX 9/12/20 Richard Allen 5:49am #11529
The best morning of the new TP DX season thus far (LSR 1210),
594 JOAK poor at 1205.
747 JOIB good at 1200-1157 (audible on barefoot ULR)
774 JOUB fair-to-good at 1212-1158 with severe QRM from nearby
KSPI-780.
828 JOBB good-to-fair at 1155-1204.
873 JOGB fair at 1152; poor at 1208.
972 HLCA good at 1151 (audible on barefoot ULR).
Skywave SSB and PL-310 with ALA1530LNP. Good DX. Richard Allen,
near Perry OK USA.`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

If I understand this correctly, and this is based on remote SDR use, a few things need to be said as regards 
using those for a reporting tool:
1.   As a programmer, I use remote websdr monitoring myself to supplement reception reports from listeners, but I am also very much aware of their limitations - they are not magical and are subject to some of the same localized issues as regular radios at times.   For example, I have had occasions when something sounds like mush on one of the best and most popular web sdrs, UTwente, while up the road in the Netherlands and Belgium, things are just fine.  Doesn't happen often, but it happens.  And there are a few web SDRs I will not name in other countries that are consistently as useless for the frequencies I want as badly configured terrestrial radio-antenna combinations.  Not everyone minds the store on these, nor do they have any obligation to do so.  Long story short, while the presence of a listenable signal confirms that a broadcast is receivable in a place, the absence of it on a web SDR is NOT conclusive proof that the signal is not.   Evidence, yes, but not proof. 
2.   For the US specifically, the US is a big place.  Even in the "golden days", signals receivable in New England were not necessarily good in Florida or vice versa.   In order to be of any use at all, reports using websdrs in the US especially  really need to specify which SDRs in which states.  This is true for any country but especially so for big ones.    Even with that, the fact that something is not tracking in New York City does not mean that it is unreceivable in upstate New York.   Again, these are useful to confirm presence but not necessarily conclusive for absence - the latter takes time and diligence and ideally reports from scattered monitors on the ground.  

I'm not trying to be critical here, but I am seeing websdr reports turn up more frequently.   These can be useful if and only if their limitations are remembered and accounted for when using them to make observations.

Glenn Hauser logs September 11-12, 2020  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 12 2020

Logs
** BRAZIL. 11780, Sept 11 at 2225, RNA is S7-S8 but sup-torted
modulation as usual; why bother to broadcast? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 4940, Sept 12 at 0053, anonymous missionary station is on
tonight with S6-S9 signal into TWR Bonaire SDR, amid English! Or
rather sermon with consecutive Spanish translation, occasional
clapping congregation. Heard Pastor Stendal mentioned, but is this
him? Sounds very much like acting president Drumpf; from the same
benighted Queens barrio? A Brother Allen/Allan/Alyn/Alyn/Alan
mentioned later as runs past 0100 with no break. 0108 about testimony
on a mission trip. 0118 retune, bit of music, and back to studio with
the long-winded predicador heard previous nights only in Spanish ---
no native languages---, citing Isaiah XVII. Retune at 0150, signal has
faded way down to S5-S6 vs storm noise level. There`s a tiny one on
the Carib coast of Colombia, but lots further circa Nicaragua,
Yucatán, Cuba, per Blitzortung (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11800, Sept 11 at 2224, RHC is S8-S9 but JBM; even less so
the parasitic spurs 11790/11810. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 12 at 0142, R. Progreso is finally back on with
music. Have not checked absolutely every night, but had been missing
ever since at least August 25, i.e. 17 days. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, 9690 & 12030, Fri Sept 11 at 2223, REE English
succeeds but Justin Coe is presenting some jazz eulogizing Bryant Park
in NYC --- what`s that to do with Spain?! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830v, Sept 11 at 2222, VOT English to us is on but with
music buried under NSS RTTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed Friday
September 11 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S9+30/35 so jamming under is almost
inaudible.

NOT confirmed UT Saturday September 12 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, as
something else has replaced without notice, gospel huxtress in
English. Skedgrid shows `Circuit Rider` with a different 15-minute
program each weekday, plugged in at various times. Might also bump
some Vivas Miamis filling quarter-hour ATS, haven`t investigated. BUT
WOR is still on 7780 at this time, VG to Maine SDR, but only clickbuzz
at UTwente, local problem? Next:

Thanks this week for financial support from Robert W Gruska,
Glendale NY, who has been contributing periodically since at
least 2009; a PMO to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702;
if by check please in US funds on a US bank.

Financial support may alternatively be sent via PayPal to
woradio at yahoo.com - not necessarily US funds as PP will convert
(Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

** U S A. 7490, Fri Sept 11 at 2215, WBCQ sounds like drama, old tyme
radio? 6160v not on yet for that to start at 2300. Guess it is as
scheduled at 2200 Fri on 7490v, ``Challenge Ministries``. BTW
equivalent times on sked are still labeled ``EST`` while they are
really EDT. Those are NOT THE SAME! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, 5130, 6160v, UT Sat Sept 12 at 0000, WBCQ starting
`AAAWWW`, in that order as they are not synchronized and I hear the
WTO starting over and over as I tune from one to another. Final
interjexion in the theme is ``flummoxed``. 0001 recheck of 6159.9
finds it reverted to some old jazz, but soon back to AW and I keep
listening there for somewhat better reception than 7490, and 5130
unusable. He starts saying they have two rules: ``don`t steal and
don`t lie`` --- yet some stuff was stolen this week but miraculously
returned; has been a stressful week, like Peyton Place [an old steamy
soap opera, I think: I never watched it]. 0011 says there is no audio
on 6 or 5 MHz --- yes, there is, I am listening on 6. AW claims he
avoids discussing politix with friends and family he knows he is not
going to persuade --- [but We the Audience are neither!] 0013 call
from Andrew about something. It`s Sept 11, YOOL 2020, anniversary of
you know what. Then they`re both into vicious political ranting:
Hillary should be in jail! Angela yells; yet at each opening he
persuades her to get closer to the mike. Don`t blame the cops or
defund them for killing George Floyd --- he died later! Blames George
Soros for paying rioters = Democrats = communists. I can`t take any
more and tune out at 0036. Just as well, as I remember it`s time to
check 4940 for Colombia, q.v. Unfortunately(?) John Carver`s computer
broke again so no report from him this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
