Logs
** AUSTRIA. 18152 USB, June 11 at 2225, OE6##, Tom, working pileups as
if there be a contest and he be rare. Found a match of exact time and
frequency at https://dxheat.com/dxc/
as OE6TLF, and at qrz.com:

** BELIZE. 18121 USB, June 11 at 2222, Keith, V31ZA, with unheard
contact and QRZ: See his bio and photos including animal rescues:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, June 12 at 0712, only RHC still on when Esperanto is
scheduled Sundays, but dead air. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, June 11 at 2228, distorted music at S3/S6, better than
usual for R. Cairo direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215.10, June 12 at 0632, African language S6/S9.
It`s DW via Issoudun, FRANCE defective transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ITALY. 21244.3 USB, II3WR TC calling QRZ and working someone
unheard in Oklahoma. He always appends TC fonetikaly to his call after
a pause; what`s that mean? No, it`s really a 4-letter suffix from a
multi-operator station per qrz.com:

We have to go to the award site to find out what WRTC stand for: World
Radio Team Championship (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.5, June 11 at 2033 UT, S9+22 of country music as //
103.1 KOFM Enid continues to be a SW station tnx to a CB pirate
relayer. Still going at 0209 June 12 check.

27184.4, June 12 at 1919 still KOFM relay but with huge het from
27185.4, another carrier to jam it? KOFM still audible at 27183.4
area. Anyone DXing this by sporadic E skip? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Hepburn tropo map shows Level 5 = strong blob edging Enid
over SE half of OK into AR, so bandscan from 1426 UT June 12:
BAD signals on RF: 9, 10, 11, 20, 23, 31, 32, 35 which are otherwise
open; also OK channels baddened no doubt by DX QRM: 7, 17. Channel
which ought to bear DX but nothing due to two DX CCI: 26. Decodes:

RF 28, Ion 44: KTPX Okmulgee OK for Tulsa
RF 34, 41-1, KMYT-TV Tulsa OK
RF 36, 17-1, TBN-HD KDOT-TV Bartlesville OK for Tulsa mkt
RF 22, 23-1, KOKI-TV Tulsa Fox
RF 21, 40-1, KHBS-DT, Fort Smith AR, ABC: site is near Poteau,
OKLAHOMA per FCC contour map!!
RF 20, 19-1, KQCW-HD Muskogee for Tulsa
No time to explore multi/sub channels for each, but rabbitears.info
listings I have found to be quite accurate.

As always my DTV DX is via Zenith set-top-box converter, fed by one
antenna about 7 feet above roof peak, hi VHF/UHF only, reflector
element slightly broken/hanging misaligned, fix-aimed SSE toward OKC,
and no amp. Under dead condx it will not decode KETA 13, KOCM 16, KSBI
23. Besides not being on UHF, OETA`s problem is QRM from 2nd harmonic
of local 107.1 KNID which falls within ch 13 on 214.2 MHz.
I used to be able to get KETAs-13 by carefully placed rabbit ears, but
not lately: something changed?? Several greater FM/TV antennas and
rotors have not survived storms thru the years. Thus I cannot even try
for lowband Es DTV DX; altho this antenna did once manage to DX KBSD
RF6 Ensign KS by strong tropo so I do recheck for that (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SLOVENIA. 18130 USB, June 11 at 22224, sounds like CR51DX, as in a
Portuguese colony? No, mentions Slovenia, so it`s really S51DX as in
Sierra instead of C-R. I was thrown likewise in 2020 by his brother
S57DX. S51DX:

S51DX Slovenia flag Slovenia,
JANEZ CELARC, Susnikova cesta 9, 1360

Previously logged on 18130-USB, Oct 31, 2020 at 1450 and on 10m,
28505.6 USB, March 28, 2014 at 1434 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 11 at 2229, VOT English YL, S5/S7 but LSB
required to avoid RTTY USB. Often nearly inaudible unless I go
remotedly to UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 12 at 0500, YP1 via WRMI with English
`Ukraine: Security Issue`, but Day 107 of war with YL#1, repeat of 24
hours ago so RMI did not get a new file today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 22477.5 CW, June 11 at 2240, VVV DE KPH etc., alternating
fast and slow markers mentioning QRU = have you anything for me? As in
EiBi for KPH Point Reyes CA, 1700-2300 Saturdays only.

I`m bandscanning the entire 22-25 MHz range for anything at all other
than hams which are propagating above and below, and this is all I
hit. I`m hoping for some broadcast harmonix, but no luck yet. I showed
in my Hunting Harmonics [sic] with Hauser column in NASWA FRENDX, SWBC
harmonic ranges, but which would now be:
23000-24320 for 2 x 11 MHz band;
23200-24800 for 4 x 5/6 MHz band;
23750-25650 for 5 x 4/5 MHz band.
21600-23340 for 3 x extended 7 MHz band.
Further ranges from more bands can be calculated up to 31 MHz or even
higher (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. No luck June 11-UT 12 with sporadic E FM DX here,
altho DXMAPS showed several openings not quite reaching us and a few
high MUF spixe. At least pokes above 28 MHz for some more 10m ham
beacons at 0033-0055 UT June 12; but all faded before 0100. Reference
the WJ5O listings and then further info from QRZ.com:

** U S A. 15730, Sat June 11 at 2048, S5/S7 in African language where
usually there is nothing: because VOA Grimesland is here at 2030-2100
only on weekends, Sunday in French. This is Hausa, but discussing
``monkeypox`` for which apparently there is no Hausa term! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15185, Sat June 11 at 2050, S9 of VOA French with an English
lesson. This Grimesland is on air 2030-2100 Sat & Sun only (Glenn

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2142 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
June 11 at 1943 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 into nearby SDR, about 2
minutes into so started circa 1941.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 12 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, JBA direct vs
HSNL = high storm noise level from SE KS; but way off side here from
222 beam: hope it`s better in C America, maybe Europe off its back.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 12 at 0322 midpoint on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, so started about 0309, with storm noise from SE KS? into nearby
SDR.

Also confirmed Sunday June 12 ending at 1401 on WMRI Europe via
Channel 292, GERMANY, 9670, S5/S6 into NW Ireland SDR. Next:

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much
appreciated, thanks this week to generous Doug Brown, London ON, who
sent a Florida US$ check to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702
USA, and comments: ``Thanks, Glenn, for continuing to promote the
medium of short wave radio at a time when many are saying the Internet

intravenous feeding is like fine dining. Authoritarian governments can

** U S A. 15150, June 11 at 2051, no signal from reactivated WMLK,
Bethel PA. There were reports Friday June 10 around 2230 of carriers
on its other registered frequency, 9275, and their FB claimed they
were about ready to test on the air. Of course, June 11 is a
Sabbathday off, but maybe on Sunday. However, 15150 is A-22 registered
at the rather strange span of 04-09 for Europe, whilst 9275 only at
17-22, both 300 kW at 53 degrees on days 123456 only (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, June 11 at 2245 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is
again/still dead air. Way to go, Rocking M! Maybe this have something
to do with it:

``Rocking M Moves Forward With Bankruptcy Reorganization
By Adam Jacobson - March 29, 2022

Three years ago, a family feud of sorts ensued for Doris and Monte
Miller. The longtime Kansas-based broadcasters dismissed two family
members, son Christopher Miller and grandson Cale Miller, from the
company. Then came barbs from Doris and Monte that Christopher Miller
had unwisely expanded Rocking M Media‘s holdings to 32 stations
between 2008 and 2018, putting the finances in a difficult position.
There was also a April 2019 deal that never closed, with Doris and
Monte Miller seizing control and taking the stations dark.

Today, Doris and Monte Miller are moving forward with a plan designed
to ensure the family’s media holdings, which date to the 1880s,
continue to generate profit while bringing luster back to a legacy
that includes The A.Q. Miller Family School of Journalism and Mass
Communications at Kansas State University, named after Monte’s
father.

Rocking M Media has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection.

Update: On May 11, 2022, Rocking M Media filed paperwork with the FCC
amending its licensee status to “debtor in possession.”``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E FM DX opening from the east, June 12 between 1652
and 1915 but not continuous listening. With OK fringe tropo still up,
little to show for it. Full details in next report: 94.3 WRLX Riviera
Beach FL; 95.1 WRNS-FM Kinston NC; 100.7 WRDU Rocky Mount NC; and I
hope more to be IDed or logged later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 12 at 0630, RV with music at S8/S9 on 3 x 3945
reactivated; as Manuel Mendez, Spain, first reported before 0600 on
7260 instead of 5040. Also JBA carrier on 7890 = 2 x 3945 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Saturday, June 11 2022

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Saturday June 11 at first check 1423,
no signal yet from LRA36 into Bs As remote, nor at 1453 vs S3/S4 noise
level on it; and still not at 1500. 1508 checking Campo, Brasil
remote; 1510 Brasília is now getting it JBA S1/S2, so back to Bs As
where it`s much better, S6/S7. Has just signed on late as often
haphazard. 1511 Antártida themesong. 1514 canned ID as ``Radio
Arcángel San Gabriel, Base Esperanza, su compañía``, omitting
``Nacional`` unlike all the others, song. 1518 the YL DJs finally come
on ``live``, greeting listeners to sexto programa of 2022 season, i.e.
the same one we heard on Wednesday. One of the YLs has a noticeably
higher-pitched voice. Geo coordinates -- they always mention that.
Base was founded on 17 December 1952. Current clima temp was: minus 1
C, warm enough to caminar = walk around outside.

Abruptly cut off air 1522* until cut back on at *1531 during song.
1536 another new? canned ID by OM voice. 1537 efemérides = this week
in history including 1980? first TA flight from Bs As to Auckland NZ.
Then about Maldivas: not an hour can go by without discussing those
islands that Argentina is obsessed with. 1545 song. 1547 canned ID,
acknowledging listeners in Italy, Argentina, Colombia. 1551 contact
info. Signal is peaking now, VG, so that my fluency with Argentine
Spanish rather than reception is the limiting factor. 1553 a bit more
Malvinas history. Who would win a referendum among inhabitants, I
ask?

1600 music. 1606 canned ID, now fading a bit, repeat temp as minus
one. Says today`s = June 8 amanecer was 10:18 local = 1318 UT. Primary
meaning of amanecer is sunrise, but could be loosely confused with
totally different dawn, really alborada. gaisma.com agrees about 1320
for SR, while sunset would be 1813 UT; she also mentioned SS but could
not catch it. 1611 contact info again; 1617 citing significant dates
for military or geopolitcal events: 1952, 1954, 1957, 1961, 1964.
Signal now S5/S9 caused not by fading but by USB modulation. 1628
mentions ``próximo programa`` so probably about to close, song. 1633
ID and staff list, ``Nacional nos une``, music until cut off at 1635*.
Typical clumsy operation. Left it on until 1700 in background, but no
more. Nor any sign of an 1800 repeat as alleged, no signal at 1830
check.

Once again I lament the lame crutch they employ, citing so much
historical info rather than what is going on *now* or recently at
Esperanza or other outposts. FWIW,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanza_Base
says ``Research projects include: glaciology, seismology,
oceanography, coastal ecology, biology, geology, and limnology`` but
with no details at all.

Gary Pence, Dallas, tells me, ``Hi Glenn, I guess they just went QRT
mid song. I was listening thru LU4AA as well. QRT at 1635z. Heard also
on KFS Halfmoon Bay, CA. Heard one S unit above an S4 noise floor,
best between 1530 and 1600z`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9677.526V, June 11 at 0631, RVM with wavering carrier and
much weaker than usual, S3/S4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9700, June 11 at 0627, surprise! RNZP reactivated and
*also* // 11725! Yes, they do have two transmitters but one normally
only standby. Certainly not the expected new #3 which may not be ready
for service until a year from now. Both are S9+10/20, slightly less
selective fading on 11. No sign of Romania in German on 9700, but
would have just closed at 0627, clashing until then? Playing song
outroed as ``No, No, No``; would that be the Saturday night request
show? Nothing about 9700 on RNZP websked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 11 at 0500-0508, UR1 via WRMI, `Ukraine:
Security Issue` with YL#1 - they never give their names - for Day 107
of Russia`s war, vs ``invincibility of Ukrainian army``. Russians are
trying to find a place to hold a referendum in ``temporarily occupied
territories`` but can`t. VG into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2142 monitoring: This bit in last
report I said 918 only, but meant 1323 only; fixed:

WOR 2142 also confirmed June 10 at 2036 the 2030 on AM Italia 1323
only, S9 into Noale.

And I should have added: TUC Radio opens with seabird calls; at 1808,
1323 had some intermittent 2-way QRM, likely ham transmitter
overloading the Kiwi. Trouble is, most of them are located at ham
stations nearby to transmitters. Also later, some ACI from other MW
signals on 1314 & 1332.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 11 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+5/15 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 11 from 0359.8 on WBCQ R. Angela,
5130, S9+10/15 to Maryland SDR. Tuned in earlier from 0333, blues
music and conversation in English, yet it really is `From the Isle of
Music` [Cuba].

Also confirmed Sat June 11 after 1600 on WRN webcast to N America.
Next, besides another WRN webbing at 1930: At 1920 15770 is playing
world music fill, and 1930 now filled by NC gospel huxter, so we must
conclude that WOR airing on WRMI is definitely canceled. Next:

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat June 11 at 0050, tune in WBCQ webcast for
`AAAWWW` just as he is concluding a look at Free Radio Weekly with my
Oklahoma CB pirate report on 27185v, but he does not go into any
usable details. So we know it`s new, as this FRW has just been
published. Of the three rotating editors, Harold Frodge is most prompt
in getting it out ASAP after the 0000 UT Saturday deadline.

At 0053 I quickly check SW frequencies via Maryland remote: besides
7490v, it`s also on 6160v and 5130, but not on 3265 like a biweek
ago. 5130 is the ``Radio Angela`` outlet otherwise not starting until
*0155. So I wonder what will happen between 01 & 02? Tonight it does
stay on with rock music at 0105 & 0128 chex. As UB frequently
outpoints, that hour and others beyond the Angela block are for
sale.

This week, at least, the 7490 webcast cuts AW off for an AW canned ID
in order to join Hal Turner on time at 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 97.3, June 11 at 1748 UT on caradio bandscanning for
possible Es, this relatively open frequency briefly utters ``Q97,
97.3`` --- geez, I already know what frequency I`m tuned to; a true ID
with what makes a station unique, like its *callsign* would be more
helpful, if not the Facility Number. Uplooked later on WTFDA DB,
including various varieties of how to punxuate Q97, comes up with one
in E Texas, two in TN, but this must be fringe area from here: KKJQ,
Garden City KS, 100 kW ERP, 244 m HAAT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
