Glenn Hauser logs January 18. 2022  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 19 2022

Logs
** CUBA. 9700, Jan 18 at 0724, RHC English at S9 but JBM, only
frequency left. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13761 & 13638 approx., Jan 18 at 1553, extremely distorted
spurblobs S3-S5 out of 13700 RHC which is S9+10. Trace of program
modulation on 13638. That`s plus and minus 61.5 kHz or so; then
checking for second-orders at twice that displacement, find 13577 at
minus 123 is also S3-S5 instead of significantly weaker. Can tell
there is one circa 13823, but obscured by 13820 Radio Martí and
jamming, tsk2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.605, Jan 18 at 2114, R. Cairo is on again and failing
miserably, extremely distorted music via UTwente at S9/+20. 4+1
mis-timesignal for 2115:00 which I time ending at 2115:50, only a
fraxion of which could be due to internet delay; programming continues
unreadable past 2145. Something`s always egregious at Egypt (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 18 at 2344, VOT English direct is S9/+10 with
flutter and somewhat undermodulated, but without the CCCCCCI which
infests it in Europe, with `Did You Know That?` feature. Without
further listening it`s impossible to know whether any program is
starting or ending since the same theme and title is played both for
intro and outro. 2354 the IS is playing; halts and restarts at 2356
now with two German IDs before 2357*, depriving masculine and feminine
KW-hearers of any more German which continues on the program feed line
für Nachteulen. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler and/or awry at
Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 6195, Jan 18 at *0259.5, BBCWS in English cuts on via
Masirah, OMAN, S5-S7, better than a weaker S3-S4 signal which cut off
a few seconds earlier: that was the same 250 kW site concluding
Dari/Pashto Afghanistan service at 35 degrees. The 03-04 hour is at
320 degrees, altho intended to go no further than Turkey. I`m checking
this out since I heard this from Doug Brown, Jan 15:

``It's been a long while since I've been able to enjoy BBC World
Service with armchair quality reception and at a convenient hour of
the day. But so I have been for the past week. We are now back at our
winter home in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, after a two year hiatus,
due to covid. I've been hearing BBC in English every evening from 0300
to 0400 GMT on 6195 KHZ. I don't know where their transmitter is
located or who their target audience is. But they're pounding in solid
here in the southeast US. Of course, we wouldn't want BBC to know that
anyone is listening here. They would shut it down. Best Regards, Doug
Brown, London ON / Seminole FL``

Checking on my NGS globe with geometer, guess what, 320 is aimed right
at Seminole. Oops! BBC is inadvertently broadcasting to North America.
6195 is a legacy BBC frequency, currently also employed at other hours
via Singapore, Säo Tomé and the Ascension part of Great Britain (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2121 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
January 18 at 2344 the 2330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 and no jamming
audible; but by 2357 recheck, now the noise is on and gaining for
total of S9+10, in time for Radio Libertad from 2400 which Must Be
Jammed to forestall any liberty in KYBA. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary
support. Thanks this week to a generous anonymous contributor via
PayPal, not necessarily in US funds to: woradio at yahoo.com
and who says, ``Thanks Again for another great year, Glenn!``

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

** U S A. 9950 & 9960, Jan 18 at 0725, JBA carriers, parasitic spurs
out of TOMBS on WRMI 9955, which is S9+20/30. So far this anomaly has
been traced to the 9955 and 4980 transmitters only, but be alert for
the like flanking other WRMIs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Tuesday, January 18 2022

Logs
** BRAZIL [and non]. 4885, Jan 17 at 0709, nothing: both Brazilians
must be off; normally Pará well atop Acre, on slightly different
frequencies. Propagation still funxioning from S America, usual VP
signal from 4940 Colombia, which I have not bothered to log itself in
months (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13636 & 13764, Jan 17 at 1555, RHC extremely distorted
spurblobs with F# tone, about S6 vs fundamental S9 on 13700. Then I
also detect second-orders peaking weaker about 13828 and 13573,
implying more like plus and minus 63.5 kHz. Something`s always wrong
at RHC, but these are rarely heard lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.6, Jan 16 at 2115, again no signal from R. Cairo into
UTwente SDR, in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5950, UT Monday January 17 at 0300, `Encore`
classical music on WRMI. I usually catch previous airing, UT Sunday
0100 on 5850 via a well-positioned remote to the NW of FL, but this
week due to perpetual scheduling conflict with `Theatre Organ Under
the Arch` on WTWW, I skipped it and resolved to get it now,
furthermore listen direct on SW. Starts sufficiently, but fading down
by 0310 as some ionospheric disturbance has hit, soon unusable. So I
go back to computer, checking remotes in TN, GA, MO which normally get
it well, but no good there either!

WWV reported the K-index at 03 was 3, down to 1 by 0600, no storms
cited. But the 27-day outlook issued an hour earlier called for Jan 17
to be at maximum readings of the entire cycle: 10.7 cm radio flux 115,
Planetary A index 18, Largest Kp Index 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Jan 17 at 2321, token English from REE with Justin
Coe about foreign-language bookshops in Madrid; said he arrived there
in 1988. Yet he still speaks perfect English. S9+20/30 into Maryland
SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Jan 17 at 2313, VOT English is very strong
but with some hum, via UTwente, registering +18 Hz offset (but not
confirmed calibration with a standard frequency), ending `Review of
the Turkish Press`, and starting `Feeling Supreme` with remedies for
xerophthalmia = ``dry eye``, something you don`t get every day on the
radio. One of them: lavénder water. 2319 outro as ``program has been
Health Line[?]`` before outro which is identical to the intro with
theme, for `Feeling Supreme`. So HL must be a subprogram of FS. Or if
HL is the program, FS is the supraprogram. Recheck at 2353.5, sign-off
again claims we have been listening to the 1330-1430 on 12035, no
others mentioned. Something`s always awry at Ankara. Cut to IS which
plays forward briefly, cut off at 2355.5, uncovering Chinese from
Xinjiang PBS, Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom
genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems; but also with carrier from
a third station causing ripple SAH, and reads +10 Hz offset. Shortly
it goes off leaving XJPBS at less than +1 Hz offset. None of the
schedules account for any third station at this time (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2121 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday January 16 from 2100 on IRRS via AM Italia, 918 kHz, S9+19 into
Noale SDR nearby. But by 2118 had replaced with fill music, presumably
lost feed.

Also confirmed Sunday January 16 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+15/20 into
Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 17 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct
and S7/S9 into Georgia SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 17 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/18
into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 17 at 0230 on WRN North America webcast, but
opening upcut. Usually there is long pause between their intro and me
starting.

Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 17 from 0404 on Area 51 webcast, but several
remotes can`t hear WBCQ 6160-. Started late after the July 4, 2014
edition of GRITS, wrapping up at 0403, ``Falling Star Network`` logo.
There was a near-blackout an hour earlier. At 0430 I can detect me JBA
on 6150.948 direct but reading a generous S8/S9 by 0435 during HRI.
Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

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

** U S A. 4985 & 4975, Jan 17 at 0710, WRMI-4 is back on air after
absence 24 hours ago from fundamental 4980 with TOMBS, and parasitic
plus/minus 5 kHz spurs. 4975 is always stronger than 4985, the latter
not always detectable with ute QRM. Yet NASWA Flashsheet filed my
yesterday`s log under 4985 which I did not mention at that time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5040, Jan 17 at 0712, JBA carrier with RHC off this
time, so Vanuatu? Or 3 x 1680 algo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ALASKA. 6075, Jan 16 at 0812, rock music, English YL DJ, ``Your New
Life Station`` ID, also at 0816, i.e. KNLS. Its broadcast day is just
starting with this English hour due west, but I am rarely awake to
hear it. Good signal off the back. This is #2 transmitter; #1
scheduled in Chinese this hour on 7370 unchecked, but had been out of
order (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Jan 16 at 0700, RHC still on here at S9+20/30 but in
unscheduled Spanish instead of English. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Jan 16 at 0705, RHC English at S6/S9 with humbuzz; only
other one still on is 9700, S9+10/20 but undermodulated. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Sunday January 16 at 0810 before I doze completely, RHC
weekly Esperanto confirmed only here, and like in English previous
hour, with humbuzz.

15140, Sun Jan 16 at 1606, next Esperanto broadcast is just starting
late with gentler `Viva la Revolución` theme, and Esperanto themesong,
S9/+10 and // 11760 only S9 but *much* louder modulation, citing
schedule as Sun 0800 on 6100 [sic!], 1600 on 11760 [only!], and 2330
on 15730 - the last one may be correct? Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2121 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday January 16 at 0445 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, VG
S9+10/15 with some lite storm crashes; about 6.5 minutes into so
started late circa 0438.

As usual slept thru the Sun 1330 on WMRI Europe via Germany 9670; did
anyone hear it? Next:
2100 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy & 207?
2330 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980 and spur 4975, Jan 16 at 0659, WRMI-4 are missing, tho
scheduled 23-11 UT, all but the first hour TOMBS. Something`s odd at
Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5097.718 & 5072.282, Jan 16 at 0701, the parasitic spurs
from 5085 WTWW-2 are still here, but JBA carriers I really have to dig
out. They have been suppressed but not eliminated as first I thought.
These match at plus/minus 12.718 kHz above and below 5085 which hits
S9+20/40, rock music on so late (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6920.0 AM, Jan 16 at 0714, S6-S8 rock music with heavy
bass. Extremely unusual for a N American pirate to be on so late; and
I had not heard any on this band during `prime` Saturday evening time.
No reports in HF Underground, except this unrelated? 7 hours later on
6920.6 with various IDs including Partial India Radio, Pirate Radio
Boston, Captain Ganja, Radio Free Euphoria:
