Sunday, January 15 2023

Logs
** CUBA. 11760 // 15140, Sunday January 15 at 1603, RHC opening weekly
Esperanto, still giving wrong schedule, probably taped years ago: Sun
0800 on 6100 - while all frequencies were off by 0710; 1600 on 11760 -
only, despite addition of 15140 years ago; and 2330 on 15730 despite
axually heard at 2130 on 13680. They also continue to mis-pronounce
some words, unable to divorce themselves from Spanish habits of
stress: Ameriko, politiko. 15140 modulation somewhat distorted
compared to 11760. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Some Comsymps take
me to task for being so hard on RHC: since Cuba jams my program and
countless others, and always airs an anti-American slant, it deserves
no respect (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 15665, Jan 15 at 1555, S Asian songs are SSOB, S9/+10
but chopped off the air at 1558*, how rude! It`s AWR in MAL, which
here means Malayalam, not Malgache or Malay, scheduled at 1530 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5, Jan 15 at 1559, PCO, HIFER beacon from Pine,
ColOrado is JBA and unusually, so is 13565, K6FRC, Patterson,
California. Still no trace of all the others listed in the 13550-13570
ISM band at
https://www.lwca.net/sitepage/part15/index.htm
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2173 monitoring: confirmed starting
at 2108 Saturday January 14 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, steady S9+20 into
nearby MO SDR, the nominal 2030; shortly after last report dispatched.
Delayed by `QSO Today` podcast of American-accented Israeli ham
interviewing South Australian-accented ham and winegrower until 2108.

Also confirmed Saturday January 14 at 2230 new time on WRMIs: 5850,
S9+20/25; 15770 S9+15/25 both direct. At this early hour despite 5850
thisaway and 15770 thataway off the side, better less noisy reception
on 15770. As usual no signal on imaginary 7730 which WRMI keeps
showing on schedules anyway.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 15 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10,
still starting with a ~10 second noise blast overriding my opening;
also 3 more brief blasts at 0033. At 0054 much better signal, VG
S7/9+10 into Maurice LA SDR.

Also confirmed starting at 0458 UT Sunday January 15 on WA0RCR, 1860
AM, VG groundwave S9+20 into nearby SDR. Great variability in start
time depends on greatly variable lengths of preceding ham shows. This
week I noted the Houston AMSAT net going to ARRL news at 0449. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ Area 51 6160v to WSW
0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [canceled! see below]
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, P O Box 1684, Enid, OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Jan 14 at 2315, this WRMI-5, WNW at 285 degrees, is
still splattering during Legends, and somewhat distorted on 9455
itself; at 2358 Ted is talking about deciding to put multi-lingual
Bibling on WTWW-3 15810 - which did not last long; cut off at 2359 for
ID and 0000 UT Sunday Jan 15 new airing of The Mighty KBC, which
happens to be at exactly same time as when it was on Nauen 5960 or
9925. By 0709 check, 9455 is S9/+10 but no spurs audible. Also, right
after `Encore` finishes 5850 at 0200, another repeat of KBC `Giant
Jukebox` on that frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Sun Jan 15 at 1935 checking WRMI during `Music and
Medicine`, introducing a Nocturne by Chaikofsky. Would like to listen
more to this show but at same hour as `Pipedreams` I always get on
$ tereo webcast of WYSU HD2, at this time playing `Nimrod` from Elgar`s
`Enigma Variations`. Is M&M at any other time? OMG, now at 10-11 UT
Wednesday on 5850, displacing a longtime WOR airing at 1030! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Jan 15 at 0701, JBA music from R. Vanuatu on 3 x
3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1950 UT January 15

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2173 monitoring: by surprise a

as below.

Confirmed UT Saturday January 14 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/35 into
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Saturday January 14 at 0500-0529 on WBCQ Radio
Angela, S8/S9 into Maryland SDR with some storm crashes; quite a
lightning line out in the Atlantic from Bahamas NNE toward Maine.

Radio DX, NORFOLK ISLAND has been testing with 200 watts on 5045. At
0818 Sat Jan 14: ``Good signal in NZ with Glenn Hauser's World of
Radio, recorded January 12th I think, so right up to date! Bryan
Clark, Mangawhai - NZ``. Was also going to test at 1700-1830 for
Europe.

Also confirmed Saturday January 14 at 1700 on WRN North America

Not confirmed the 2030 UT Sat Jan 14 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+20,

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid, OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Monitoring `AAAWWW` on WBCQs, UT Sat Jan 14 from 0100, very
confusing situation. Started tuning at 0058 hearing the tail end of
the `FKB` gospel huxter with 3265.167 already on, S6/S8 into Maryland
SDR, and // 7489.928 which is his normal only frequency at 0000 UT
Sats. 3265+ is always way off/frequency+ whenever turned on, one hour
a week?

Then at 0100 I`m trying to listen via the (7490) webcast, which fires
an ID but then some other music, not `William Tell Overture` theme.
Back to SW: at 0101, WTO is playing on 6159.936v. Then I check the
(6160 Area 51) webcast, and it is still playing music other than
WTO.

Then I`m forced to listen on SW only, 5129.996 slightly better than
6160v better than 7490v; Allan opens as on ``5130, 6160, 3265`` as
well as 7490; fiddling with levels. Angela is ``there`` on a remote
lo-fi phoneline. During the hour we hear very little from her as more
inconvenient for her to interrupt his monologs.

For Allan is in Master Control, Monticello, first time in a long time.
Starts to give top frequency as 7415 which was changed years ago to
7490. 0105 takes a call from Larry Will, who informs him that the
webcasts are not working and 6160 reception for him in MD is poor. As
far as Allan can tell, everything is OK, the show audio going into the
webcasting inputs -- but Larry and I know better by axually monitoring
them.

To my great surprise, the new WORLD OF RADIO 2173 starts playing at
0108 on the Area 51 webcast only, straight thru to 0137, no ID and
then starts some music. This could hardly have been accidental: a
bonus from Larry?

AAAWWW continues to be audible only on SW transmitters. Allan has been
explaining SW propagation, how fluorescent lights work, blue light
being bad for you; until 0136 announcing as quadricasting from MC#1 in
M`cello, on Friday The 13th, 2023, but I think he omitted the month.
0137 I recheck the (7490) webcast: now silent, no music but the timer
is running.

Says it`s snowing in Maine, while Angela has been blanketting horses
today, i.e. still stuck in chilly Fla. Then Allan talx about how for
fun, he has been working on an Atwater-Kent radio a hundred years old,
which worx after a few repairs. He was surprised to find that
resistors were in the form of mere wires back then. 0147 prompts her
for ``Angela`s Angle``, but she was not ready with anything. Nor have
we heard any such regular prepared commentaries from her elsewhen.

Allan asserts that inflation is much worse than the government
figures. 0152 admits that `Financial Survival` has left WBCQ but
continues elsewhere - WWCR, WRMI? So its M-F 21-22 UT hour on 7490 is
now an Available Time Slot for something else or for F.S. to return.
Meanwhile it`s being filled M-F, not just Wed before WOR, by JP`s old
record show.

0153 spends more time than usual reading items from Free Radio Weekly
just out, as when Harold edits on rotation, it`s prompt. Always has to
mention Ball Smacker Radio as Angela`s ``favorite`` --- is she a
bowler? Bowless? This goes on until 0159 high time for a prayer. Note
that this week there was hardly anything political! No dissing of
Democrats. No reference to ``our president``. Could they be realizing
they have been delusional about T****? Too soon to tell.

They run past 0200 Hal Turner time, but there is dead air past 0201 on
7490, 0202 finally music makes 7490 webcast come to life and match
7490 SW but still no Hal. 0204 switch to apparent Hal`s music as
someone mutters, ``do it this way`` twice. 0205 Hal finally heard
saying he is ``restarting`` so evidently some mixup on his end too -
or he was depending on hearing himself on SW and/or web. Tuneout!
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Jan 14 at 0715, this WRMI at S9+20 is splattering
badly to the lower side, audible as far down as 9220, peaking about
9422, and even QRMing 9330 WBCQ which I first suspected as source, but
matched modulation peaks to 9455 on another radio. Notified Jeff 10
hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7890, Jan 14 at 0709, JBA carrier from 3945 X 2
Radio Vanuatu, while 11835 = 3 X 3945 achieves some sound at S4/S5.
MUF is up with 13755 NZ booming S9+10/20! in Saturday night request
show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. For those who may not have seen it, I have been intending to
link to RHC`s obituary for Arnie Coro:
https://www.radiohc.cu/en/noticias/nacionales/309905-prominent-cuban-journalist-and-professor-arnaldo-coro-antich-passes-away

** CUBA. 5040, 6000, 6060, 6100, 6165, 10080, 11670, 12000, Jan 13 at
0720, RHC is OFF early from possible frequencies. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Jan 13 at 2133, still no signal of R. Cairo into
UTwente, nor reported for almost a month; something`s egregious in
Egypt. I may stop non-logging it now until and unless it upshow (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORFOLK ISLAND. 5045, Jan 13, Nick Hacko notified the WOR iog of
another test of Radio DX bracketing local sundown, 0730-0830 UT.
Direct, nothing yet at 0720, but JBA carrier detectable at 0724! No
more than that here direct, 0735 recheck, so this time I`m listening
via the Maui SDR, which others were using well two nights ago. At
0729, I can hear my voice with the ID recorded for original use last
April. It`s S5/S7 into Maui with some storm crashes but Blitzortung
does not show any major lightning areas closer than NSW and SE USA.
IDs repeat a few in a row with pauses; 0731, woman singing hymn,
``Just a Closer Walk with Thee``. Parts of this also repeat several
times. 0736, seems like lite CW QRM with VVVs. I see Gary Pence and
someone in Sydney are also listening via Maui. Some breaks in
transmission like 0740.7* to *0741.5; running-water QRM at 0742.7. At
0748, during an ID suddenly switches to SSB, so I switch to USB, but
it`s soon back in AM. Nick said this was a defect of his transmitter.
0752, the hymn again, 0755 IDs, which I re-record before I go to bed.
0758, YL starts another song. 0818, my final check direct on R75 with
E/W longwire, still JBA carrier vs S9 high local noise level.
Presumably runs until about 0830. Many other reports of this in the
WOR iog. Power 200 watts into vertical antenna (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** PERU. 4810, Jan 13 at 0723, JBA carrier, presumed R. Logos. Only
chance to copy anything is by LSB tuning avoiding STANAG on plus side,
but there is still weak CODAR QRM on minus side vs this signal too
weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Fri Jan 13 at 0230-0245, WRMI playing
pop/rock/rap music, fill? instead of classical `Encore` still
scheduled at 0200-0300. Notified Jeff White and Brice Avery: there was
an error in the file name, repaired so further repeats will be OK
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Jan 13 at 0722, JBA carrier, no doubt SIBC
in 5025 Cuba sideband, boding well for the imminent 5045 test from
Norfolk Island, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Friday January 13 at 2300, REE in tokEnglish, VG
S9+10/20 into Maryland SDR, before news, previews that feature will be
about the play `La Vida es Sueño` by Calderón de la Barca. A few
minutes later it`s recording of press conference by the
English-speaking director and stage designer, since they don`t do
interviews` with consecutive English/Spanish interpretation back and
forth: very competently done and could serve as a language lesson in
itself. But I`m not very interested in the subject. It seems REE
English leans heavily on the arts to talk about, such as theatre,
music, painting, all of which lack something when they are only being
discussed orally. Safer subjects, I guess, than politix or hard news
about what`s going on in Spain. At outset I quickly checked the other
frequencies into same SDR: 12030 for ME much weaker but second-best;
11940 for S America third and with an echo; 11670 for Africa still no
signal. Just before 2300, 12030 was not // in some other language
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.001, Jan 13 at 2257, TRT is already on with
IS, tough luck for BBC listeners, S9+35/35 into UTwente, but a bit
undermodulated. At first I`m mainly listening to simulSPAIN, q.v. By
2313 during music, CCCCCCI from XJPBS, EAST TURKISTAN has hit it from
the land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other
Moslems. 2320 filler plug ``The Voice of Tuerkiye, always by your
side``, and then, not to be confused with `Weekly Commentary`, now
`Weekly Analysis`, written by some professor, about conflicts in 2023
concerning Turkey, mainly war in Ukraine, implying that it`s being
prolonged due to US aid --- well? Also focus on the Black Sea. 2324
suddenly dumps off the air uncovering XJPBS at S8+5/15. I attend to
REE so not sure exactly when it come back; but at 2329 the CCCCCCI is
worse making a pumping SAH of 3 Hz while UTwente now shows TRT +002 Hz
high. 2333 the multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2335 `Feeling Supreme` -
or is it `Healing Spring`? anyhow a repeat of how wonderful the kiwi
fruit is. At 2343 I switch to the same Maryland remote used for
Spainglés earlier, where TRT is not so solid, S8/9+12 but better ratio
against the CCCCCCI, still some detectable SAH fading. 2350 `Did You
Know That?` about significance historically of the number 7, and how
two of the Seven Wonders of the World were in Anatolia. 2353 s/off
with schedule, one run of IS to turnoff at 2354.7* (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2173 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, UT Friday January 13 at 0330 on WRMI 7780: as usual, JBA direct,
S5/S8 vs noise level; sufficient S9/+10 into Maurice LA SDR.

NOT confirmed Friday January 13 at 0830 on WRMIs: briefly scheduled
here, but now `OTH Radio` hour heard on all three, 5010, 5850 and 7780
at 0812.

Also confirmed Friday January 13 at 1533 the 1530 on WRMI 9955, S9
direct: pleased it`s on this week; 1545 displeased that 9955 has been
turned off by now. We never know whether this airing will be on SW at
all, usually not.

Also confirmed Friday January 13 at 2130 on IRRS SW via AM Italia,
1323 kHz but still no signals on 918 or 207 kHz; S9+15/20 into nearby
Noale SDR, lite CCI causing a rippling SAH. Preceding
American-accented discussion show chopped off by 2130 for ID and WOR.

{too late to fix on WOR, Ken Zichi corrects his frequency range for
CODAR including Morse code IDs: 4450-4475 like the other reporter, not
7450-7475}

** VANUATU [and non]. 11835, Jan 13 at 0721, JBA carrier from R.
Vanuatu X3, adjacent something stronger on 11830 in English: Aoki says
BBC Ascension at 06-08 and it`s *jammed, i.e. not just Africa but for
putting too much signal into China, where too many denizens now
understand English. I don`t usually notice that when checking for RV.
13755 NZ is also JBA carrier now; T-P MUF depressed despite solar flux
exceeding 200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
