Logs
** ALGERIA [non]. 9620, June 28 at 0607, RTA Qur`an is S9 but with
rapid beepery, this frequency the lucky one drawing the defective
Issoudun, FRANCE transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, June 28 at 1334-1345, lots of them:
13530; 13160 & 13070 & 12820 all S7-S9; 12190 JBA; 14550 Open carrier,
else?; 14850 S7-S9; 14980 S9/+10 and only one with a fast SAH implying
other signal SOH being jammed; 15110 strangely a JBA carrier only
today, maybe VOA not jammed? 11460, 11440, 11170, 11150 JBA; 11120
S4-S6; 10920 & 10820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9900, UT Sun June 28 at 0005, The Mighty [Farty]
KBC found here with S9+20 VG signal presumably still via Nauen,
GERMANY, since it`s missing from scheduled 9925! Mistake? No word of
any planned QSY nor any need for it. Notified WOR iog immediately and
a couple thanked me for the tip. Back on 9925 next week? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA [and non]. Another reply from Texas Radio Shortwave
June 26:

``Ahoy Matey Glenn - There weren't any ships to raid and burn to the
waterline last night so Cap'n Ric was catching up with your logs on
the W4UVH website. (Actually, Cap'n can't read so Third Mate Susan was
reading the best parts to him, you know, the mentions of TRSW.).

He was as pleased as pirate "punch" (i.e. rum) to see TRSW's Roy
Orbison tribute eQSL on the site. Third Mate Susan downloaded WOR2040
to give Cap'n something to listen to while her voice recovers. Now we
know why you sometimes sound hoarse on the programs.

First Mate Mr. Turkey said TRSW may curtail broadcasts to NAm in favor
of its monthly programming over Channel 292 in Germany. Or at least
until the Fall-Winter holidays. TRSW has a growing listener base in
Europe and a relatively fixed group of DX enthusiast listeners in NAm,
so the thought is to concentrate on Europe. Right now, based on
listeners' feedback, TRSW programs music about Texas and lesser-known
songs by Texas artists.

Second Mate Mr. Bunny sent his regards and seven already-issued TRSW
pirate trading cards. The remaining three cards will be released later
this year. Enjoy and collect 'em all. [were attached]

73 and Arrgghh.

P.S. When raiding ships, Crew wears protective masks and practices
social distancing.

Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then always be a
pirate.

Texas Radio Shortwave Sailing to your ears from the Lone Star State``
(via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 27 at 2202 check, VOT is on today but poorly
audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKOGBANI. 9410, UT Sun June 28 at 0604, BBCWS news mentions that
Andrew Jackson was US president 1855-1859!? Really 1829-1837. Followed
at 0606 by one of their COVID-19 programmmes, but ID as BBC OS. What
means that? ``OS Conversation``:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3ct0vzd
Barely sufficient reception, this bihour via USAGM SAO TOME, as BBC
continues to ignore North American SWLs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Received a detailed reply, if not explicit QSL from
anonymous Broadcast Manager at MARS to my June 26-27 monitoring of
11121-USB and 7324-USB fortnightly broadcasts. Here I will just post
the ``red`` reply portions:

``Glenn: Thank you for your reception report. I am going to insert
comments below in red. The red is only for ease of identification and
infer no other meaning. Broadcast Manager

To: reception@xcvrs.com
Subject: 7324 and 11121 broadcasts monitored in Oklahoma

[11121-USB, Friday June 26 at 2300:]

``This broadcast was from Northern Virginia just southwest of the DC
metroplex.``

[7324-USB, UT Sat June 27 at 0100:]

``This broadcast was transmitted from central Kentucky. The DoD and
NATO standard for HF broadcasts is Upper Sideband regardless of
frequency. USB applies to both voice and digital modes. (The arbitrary
convention adopted by amateur radio worldwide of using Lower Sideband
below 14 MHz is simply a convention with no reason based on science.)

Regarding the use of 7325 kHz, there was no interference 500 Hz below
the center of the channel when we began using the channel. We have
requested a small move of that channel based on long-term SDR logging
of nearby activity. The change process is not simple. Because it is a
DoD frequency it has to be coordinated up thru the Air Force and DoD.
When DoD approves they make a request to The National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) in the
Department of Commerce for frequency coordination.

Here is a graphic of the complex spectrum management workload at NTIA.
https://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/2003-allochrt.pdf

So, as you see, when a country decides to start transmitting on an
interfering frequency it is not easily solved overnight.``

``The broadcasts are transmitted by the Air Force MARS Military
Support Network which uses the on-air callsign of MARSCOMM. We do not
transmit the callsign of the transmitting station in accordance with
DoD directives regarding protecting Personally Identifiable
Information (PII).``

``At 0100 we had simultaneous broadcasts on 11121 from Nevada and 7324
from South Dakota. Both of those stations are always very strong. From
Oklahoma I copied both stations Loud & Clear on two different channels
on an ICOM IC-7610.``

``At 0120 there was a single broadcast on 7324 from South Dakota. It
too was Loud & Clear at all reporting stations.``

``Thank you for your signal report. We hope to hear from you again in
the future. MARSCOMM Broadcast Manager`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28236.5-CW, June 27 at 2140, 10-meter beacon activity
lacking any 3-meter FMDX, long message with ID finally copied as
W0KIG/B, and --DO, but had to be this, missed a dit making it -Z
instead of -G, from WJ5O roster:

``28.2365 WØKIZ C DENVER, COLORADO # 5W, 1/2 VERTICAL``

i.e. from https://www.qrz.com/lookup/w0kiz

``W0KIZ USA flag USA, ROBERT E GOLD, CASTLE ROCK, CO 80104 USA
QSL: CORRECT ZIP CODE 80108 --- The second picture is my 10 meter
beacon on 28.2365 mhz running about 9 watts with 5 watts to the
antenna on my barn. The 5763 final tube is approaching 80,000 hours of
continuous operation. Yes, properly designed equipment with the
correct voltages running ccs operation can last as long as solid
state. This beacon is never disconnected for lightning.``

At this time there was lots of activity on 10m, non-beacon CW at
bandbottom, phone USB above 28.3; also lots on 11m CB. WWV in well on
25000, correlating with short-skip beacon also from CO, under 500
miles.

Yet even when this happen, find near/zero activity on 12 or 15 m. I
look for any on the latter and do find one:

21363-USB, June 27 at 2200, YL K5RZA, YL participating in Field Day
with quick QSOs:

``K5RZA DEBORAH S BOWEN, P O Box 2856, Fredericksburg, TX 78624 USA``

BTW, UT Sun June 28 circa 0600, 40m is crammed with LSB Fieldayers ---
nighters? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: the Sat June 27 at
1930v UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, I try to hear circa 1955
via closest remotes to there in IL, IN, IA, but no signal reaching
them in summer daytime. May well be on anyway.

Confirmed UT Sun June 28 at 0300 on WRMI 5800, VG via TWR Bonaire SDR

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun June 28 at 0024-0053, WTWW-2 with Theater Organ
[NOT] in the Ozarx, Bob Heil presenting guest performances from
elsewhere, as I listen instead to $ tereo webcast; time always varies
if at all.

WRMI, I can`t get on webcast, but VG SW reception via one of the
numerous Rochester NY KiwiSDRs; to repeat 25 hours later on 9455
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 28218, June 28 at 1451, two beacons near here, and
another, a W1, at 28290, but none so listed, and no time to pursue. a
lot later I got WJ5O himself again from AL, so 28289.3 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIALS

Many thanks to John Carver, Bringhurst IN, for a generous contribution
to P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, with this touching hand-printed note
sent June 23:

``Glenn, Finally got my plague check and am sharing a portion with you
just as you have shared DX tips and your radio knowledge with me and
everyone else for all these years ever since I subscribed to the print
edition of RIB. As I recall, I answered an ad in the WRTH. I have been
proud to contribute a few news items to you and hope to do so again in
the future. Have not been able to contact my computer guy as of yet.
Really miss the WOR group and the other mailing lists as my only
source of information now is the WOR radio program. Feel very isolated
and alone here. Been ill a couple of times and am going through a
spell of physical problems, and my eyes are getting worse. Hope you`re
doing well. Thanks, man. John``

When you can finally read this, John, we all wish you the best! (gh)

Logs
** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, June 26 at 0557, VON missing from both
possible channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 kHz, June 26 at 0559 UT, ND beacon PN from Ponca City
is one again IDing in MCW with considerable pauses, rather than dead
air the last time checked. Overall 25 watt (?) signal seems weaker
than it had been, but storm noise levels are high (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 26 at 2246, VOT is on with Turkish music which
would have been enjoyable were it not for the choppy signal and noise
level, could not copy whether sign-off still claims to be the 1230 on
15450; cut off at 2255* so no spurious German today (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 11121-USB, Friday June 26 at 2300, fortnightly AF MARS
broadcast just barely audible, mostly uncopiable despite slow pace,
fade-outs, but originates (message, or transmission?) from Scott AFB,
Illinois. Three more chances so will try later: but next one at 2320
on 7324-USB is a no-show at least until 2323.

7324-USB, UT Sat June 27 at 0100, repeat of MARS broadcast starts
abruptly, despite AM carrier on 7325, which is Iran in Spanish until
0120. Why in the world would MARS pick such a frequency, and USB
instead of LSB, no less. Fortunately Iran is weaker and the R75 ANF
rids most of the het. So I take some notes, more detailed at the
start:

``MARS, MARS, this is MARS-COM. Do not answer. Authentication FGHEZQ
[fonetik]. 26 June 2020. HQ message #1-2``

Paragraph 1: July X, 2020, on or about 20 July-24 July, on-line
communications...

Paragraph 2: A-6 leadership changes, AFW4C and AFW0C

Paragraph 3: [missed: quick check of 11121-USB which is scheduled
duplicative at this hour only, to hear weaker different voice reading
presumed same text but not synchronized; where from? No callsign IDs
heard on either frequency]

Paragraph 4: COVID-19 - standard advice for coping.

Paragraph 5: more than 50 trainees are in the pipeline; mentor
volunteers needed

Paragraph 6: AF MARS Special Operations seeks volunteers

Paragraph 7: Thanks for support; from HQ ---

``Next broadcast will be on 10-11 July 2020; on 10 July at 2300z on
11121.0; 2320z on 7324.0; 11 July at 0100z on 11121.0 & 7324.0; 0120
on 7324.0. Supported by the 12th Air Force Military Support Squadron;
contact AFH1C [is that a callsign or an abbr.?]. End. This is
MARS-Com, out`` until 0109.

I did not try for the final repeat at 0120 on 7324. Thanks to Chuck
Gessner, W3ON, for notifying us on the WOR iog about this after the
previous biweekly broadcast, including that reception reports go to
reception@xcvrs.com (Glenn Hauser, USAF Ret., OK, WOR)

** U S A. No sporadic E FM DX captured June 26 despite a few chex when
there were scattered 100+ MHz MUFs on DXMaps; but at least 30 MHz, as
I log a few more beacons on the 10m hamband:

28251.5-CW, June 26 at 2145, long message and long pauses --- so you
could easily miss it in bandscanning; after several iterations -
minutes, managed at least to copy the ID: KE5JXC/B. It starts with
that, no VVV, or DE; and ends with figure 9, probably grid square.
Per WJ5O beacon roster, it`s:
``28.2515 KE5JXC C PECAN ISLAND, LOUISIANA # 5W, VERTICAL new 10 Sept
15`` --- ooh, I love pecans, but not the hassles of harvesting them
before the squirrels, blanching and cracking and extracting. Pecan
Island is a town of 400 less than 10 miles from the coast due south of
Alexandria; beware: distancefromto.net measures some place NW of Baton
Rouge. QRZ.com:
``KE5JXC USA flag, Arnold J Lemaire, 13630 La Hwy 35, Kaplan, LA 70548

** U S A. 9330, 7490, 6160, 5130, June 26 at 2312, all WBCQs are
absent, so bodes ill for `AAAWWW` in following hour.

7490.04, UT Sat June 27 at 0000, this WBCQ is back on, but poor in
storm noise, after FKB gospel huxter, then that commercial for SDRs
before WTO and AAAWWW starts. After noting that there is a problem
with 6160 & 5130 as if they are nowhere near Maine, A&A launch right
into Trump-forever commentary, so back to MSNBC for me. Recheck at
0022, 6159.90 is on now and about as poor as 7490.04, and 5130.0 is
detectable but unusable. 0051 recheck just in time to hear him admit
that they are back in ``Studio 9 in Deland of Fla`` --- even tho it`s
high summer, nor is it yet a repeat but live on ``26th of June, YOOL
2020``.

Current storm areas marring reception here are: NW TX/OK Panhandles;
but major line along the KS/CO border, and a long line across KS, S
IA, N IL, N IN, S MI, N OH as far as Cleveland. I`ve been listening
only on SW direct, not webcast or remotes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 26 at 0550, RV, 3 x 3945, in presumed Bislama,
poorly audible S4-S7 but better than it has been for several nights;
despite storm noise this high in the band from the Nebraska area; 0556
improving with ``island music``. JBA carrier on 7890 = 2 x 3945. I
don`t even bother to try the fundamental this early (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
