** CANADA. 328-MCW kHz, Nov 11 at 0739 UT, ND beacon dash and YTL,
which is 1000 watts from Big Trout Lake, Ontario, way north of Thunder
Bay, last logged Oct 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Anomalies from RHC as I start tuning Nov 11 at 1433: spurblob
circa 13838, which would be 2 x +69 kHz out of 13700 transmitter, but
shortly disappears, and by the time I get to 13700 it is vacant too;
and so is 13740. At 1436, I find 15140 also AWOL, 15230 on but
undermodulated, 11760 JBA but quickly pops up to S9+10.

At *1439, 13700 comes back on at S9, and simultaneously 13740 back too
at S9+20: proof that both are from same site, Bauta or Bejucal, only
one of which has suffered a power failure.

Also on now are the FMish extremely distorted spurblobs out of 13700,
with F# telltale tone, ~69 kHz intervals: primaries 13769V noticeably
wobbling too, and 13631 S7-S9; second-orders 13562 & 13838;
third-order JBA 13493; all still going at 1507 after 13740 is off.

Tnx to Jean-Michel Aubier, France who just informed the WOR iog that
RHC has finally posted new B20 skeds on its website by language,
including English, but not effective until Tuesday November 17:

Note reactivation of 6060, NO 6145, NEW 9700, for Washington one
frequency 6000 at overlapping times?? Africa service reactivated on a
higher frequency for winter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SLOVENIA [and non]. 18125-USB, Nov 11 at 1510, S57DX calling CQ17
and making quick contacts with N American stations; also heard K3LLT
et al. mentioned. S57DX is getting to be a regular here, when little
else is in from Europe.

18133-USB, only other phone signal on band at first was W5JI working a
JBA F1: W5JI, JOSEPH S DI MARE, JR, LAKELAND, FL 33803 USA, per
QRZ.com. I figured he must be beyond the real too-near #5 call area.
But this means WRMI with at least 100X the power would have been well
heard if it were using any 16m band frequency, unlike 13m, 21525,
never more than a JBA carrier here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 11 at 2322, VOT English via UTwente is VG S9+20
but with buzz which seems self-imposed rather than QRM; feature about
the Ottoman Empire, yet another Wednesday with no `Letterbox`; more
features and lots of music. Something`s always awry at Ankara,
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 383-MCW kHz, Nov 11 at 0731 UT, ND beacon CNP, which is 25
watts from Chappell, southwest Nebraska. Rarely heard, last logged
March 18, 2020.

347-MCW kHz, Nov 11 at 0734 UT, NDB AFK, which is 25 watts from
Nebraska City, NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: altho on the WRMI
skedgrid for Wed 1030 on 5850, confirmed NOT on the air but instead
Brother Hystairical, by overnight recording here, and also tnx to
Wolfgang Bueschel, Richard Langley and Dave Kenny for checking.

This means none of the shown 10-11 UT programs on System F 5850 really
exist, such as Wavescans, all of which have been removed for latest
update of my DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html
as well as WORLD OF RADIO schedule
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

For many months there have also appeared three WOR airings between
2100 and 2200 on WRMI System D but with NO frequencies! Another
imaginairing is Wed 2100 on System F 7780. History of that from our
http://www.angelfire.com/ok/worldofradio --

``2020: On Wed Jan 1 & 8, another secret/not on schedule airing of WOR
monitored at 2100 on WRMI 7780. Added to their schedule by Jan 15. Wed
Mar 11 at 2100, WRMI deleted WOR on 7780 in favor of something else.``
Which was This `Is A Music Show`, and *still* confirmed there on Nov
11 contrary to skedgrid.

WOR 2059 confirmed Wed Nov 12 from 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490+v, S9/+25,
nice to hear such a good signal from this, only in the B-seasons.

Also confirmed Wed Nov 12 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, S9+20/30 on one radio
here, S9+10/20 on another, over pulse jamming. Next and last:

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

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

and years of information. I also love tips for rational living!!!``

Logs
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer search, Nov 10 at 1350, none WOOB higher than
JBA carriers on 10920, 10720; at 1353, JBA or JBACs on 9215, 9290,
9315, 9320, 9340, 9355, 9370 --- but per Aoki of these, 9290, 9340,
9355 and 9370 are all something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. Evening CNR1 jammer search WOOB, Nov 10 from 2310: JBA or
JBA carriers, u.o.s. Strong 13070 S6-S9 brought up on second receiver
for easily // chex. Started tuning down from 14000; there may have
been some above: 13160, 13130, 13070, 12880, 12835 S5-6, 12820, 12550
S6-8, 12500 S6-7, 12230 S6-7, 12210, 12190.

At 2319, 11775 inband // 13070.

From 2321: 11750 S4-6, 11580 S3, 11520 S3, 11500 S2, 11440, 11170,
11150, 11120, 11100 S6-8, 10970 S7-8, 10920 S7-8, 10870 S5-6, 10820
S4-6, 10160 S8-9! - but avoids the ``30m`` hamband up to 10150.

From 2327: 9180, 9200 S9+20/25, 9215 S7, 9230?, 9300 S7-8 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 6090, Nov 11 at 0005, poor Chinese not // CNR1 11070 etc.,
rather CNR2, China Business Radio. Aoki/NDXC shows site Golmud 916,
while EiBi shows q which is really the same:
q-Ge'ermu/Golmud "916" (Qinghai) 36N26-95E00
Would you believe Aoki/NDXC still shows on 6090 the Anguillan part of
Great Britain; and Bandeirantes/Brasil.

6080, Nov 11 at 0006, CNR1 at S9+10 not a jammer but // 11070 which
is; site also q, only one myriahertz separate from 6090 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 11790, Nov 10 at 2318, discussion in American English, so
likely CRI, certainly not VOA! Yes, sked CRI 23-01 via Xianyang site;
and not hearing any RHC spur from 11800 which is fairly strong; nor on
11810 but something else, per Aoki/NDXC CNR8 in Mongolian from Beijing
site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15125, Nov 11 at 0013, English narration with music, and
voicing-over a bit of Chinese, so it`s CRI via Beijing site for SE
Asia but good here, noticed when tuning 15120 for absent CRI relay via
Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 10 at 0653, RHC English is suptorted here, but OK
on 6145, and 5040 still on; plus 6000 but undermodulated. Now the
nominal English hours on 5040 should be 00-01 & 06-07 only.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. BTW, the ``African`` hour in English
in B-seasons had been at 2200 but I have not hunted for it since that
disappeared mid-summer when it was at 2300 on 7380 // 5040 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Nov 10 at 1345, RHC is not on here but is on 13740.
Aoki/NDXC shows 13740 Bejucal at 12-14, and 13700 Bauta at 14-16, but
they usually overlap considerably. EiBi agrees with NDXC except puts
both in Bauta. No spurs possible with 13700 off, but Mark Coady had
some the following hour today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5990, Nov 11 at 0010, JBM Spanish, wonder if an RHC program?
No, not // 6000, 11760 or 11950 and eventually talking about China, so
CRI relay as scheduled; however, no signal on // 15120. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 11 at 0010, RHC Spanish discussion of US politix,
running 5 seconds behind 5025 R. Rebelde, so both are simulcasting the
`Mesa Redonda` TV show; also on // 11950 at 0018 only S6 and JBM. But
not on any other RHC channel, own Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [and non]. 7445, Nov 10 at 0656, quite a collision here,
BBCWS in English until 0659.5*, and something in Japanese at equal
level --- one transmitter with double feed, or two? No SAH detectable.
B-20 HFCC shows BBC ASCENSION at 0600-0700, but NHK is not supposed to
start until 0700! It does keep going solo after BBC quits, timesignal
at ToH. This one is 300 kW, 85 degrees direct from Yamata for CIRAF 14
& 16 = Chile, Argentina, most of Uruguay and half of Paraguay &
Bolivia, at 0700-0900 UT, i.e. starting at 3 or 4 am local! Are the
Japanese immigrant community there known for early-rising? This would
be much better suited for Hawaii on the way at 9-11 pm HST! But this
morning turned on a bit earlier? Aha, Aoki/NDXC shows *0655, and also
that 7445 BBC is *jammed; its 65-degree azimuth across Africa must be
intruding into Chicomland, where far too many Mandarins understand
English and otherwise would risk corruption by the truth (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 9515, Nov 10 at 2026-2028*, soft orchestral music,
maybe looping as an IS? Good with some flutter. It`s AWR French aimed
USward across Africa at 320 degrees from Talata with 250 kW from
2000.

9855, Nov 10 at 2029, open carrier at S9/+10, 2030 NHK World Radio
Japon opening in French, somewhat undermodulated. Could be same Talata
transmitter just closed on 9515; now it`s 250 kW at 305 degrees (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NICARAGUA. 8989-USB, Nov 10 at 2327, VP Spanish with predicator
exaggerated self-confident intonation, presumed the fisher-preacher in
or near Nic waters (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. 5980, Nov 10 at 2316, no trace of a carrier from R.
Chaski, just Cuban pulse jamming originally for now vacated Radio
Martí, and also some bubble jamming centred circa 5980.3 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5896.50-USB, Nov 11 at 0015, MARS net with sporadic voice
contacts, blaaps; one clear fonetik ID from AFA6PY, but where? Hardly
any hits searching on call, not even license plates. Have had several
logs since 2016 of MARS net here around this hour, just outside the
ITU official 5900+ SWBC band, despite loads of stations down to 5800;
but no QRM to this net now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring:

Could anyone awake at 1030 Wed please check direct or remotedly
whether 5850 WRMI is really running WOR then? Tnx.

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [new? unconfirmed]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, Nov 10 at 1354, WRMI-6 is back on! At full power and
modulation, S9/+10 with Oldies, IDs. Had been off for two sesquiweeks,
since Oct 20 with very serious problems as discussed in the WOR iog.
Also still on at 2024 check with interminable SMTV ID including this
and the other WRMI frequencies with general nominal coverage areas.

9955, meanwhile, Nov 10 at 2029, WRMI-3 is still BSing // 9980 WWCR
and 9455 WRMI; 9955 had been reactivated daytimes in place of 9395.
Maybe now it will resume radio silence between 15 and 21, later after
15 on weekends. 9395 runs 24 hours, with quite a variety of Systems
input depending on time, per http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs ---
C, F, G, H, J. The transmitter grid has been updated as of today.
WRMI posted this on disgraced FB, 42 minutes before 2204 UT Nov 10:

``9395 kHz back on the air! We are happy to say that WRMI now has the
frequency of 9395 kHz back on the air. The programs which were
temporarily transferred to 9455 kHz have now returned to 9395, and
9455 kHz is back to its regular programming. Thanks for your patience
while our 9395 kHz transmitter was being repaired, and thanks to our
engineers Don Frish and Pat Travers for all of their work on this
unit.``

As for all three 7 MHz WRMIs severely degraded last evening, they were
back up to usual levels by 0700; must have been an ionospheric
disturbance which later abated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM. 11719.9, Nov 10 at 2320, poor S4 in tonal language; per
Aoki/NDXC it`s VOV-1, nominal 11720 from a station replete with
offfrequenciness.

12018.8, Nov 10 circa 2317, another longtime cockeyed VOV JBA carrier,
scheduled now in Indonesian on rounded `12019` per EiBi but this
block of languages absent from Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9292.2-USB, Nov 10 at 2329 as I am scanning for CNR1
jammers, some 2-way in Spanish; cambio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. 5980, further checking for R. Chaski, Nov 9 at 2346:
there is a carrier mixed with Cuban pulse jamming, adding up to
S9/+10, surely too much to be Urubamba, but what? At 2353 modulation
starts with the Iranian choral national anthem, and then Qur`an, i.e.
the standard sign-on of IRIB, for the Spanish to S America service of
La Voz de la República Islámica de Irán, starting at 2350. So even if
OBX4M were on until 0000, it would be blown away by this.

Here are the significant entries in EiBi:
5980 1700-2200 TUR Voice of Turkey TU Eu e
5980 1730-2352 PRU R.Chaski Red Integridad S,Q PRU ur
5980 2350-0250 IRN IRIB Voice of I.R.Iran S SAm s
5980 1100-1630 PRU R.Chaski Red Integridad Q PRU ur

Notice how the Chaski sign-off seems to be coördinated with the Irán
sign-on, more likely coincidental? But even in Perú they could well be
aware of when Irán takes over their frequency. So our window for
possibly hearing it will be between 2200 and 2345v, not to mention
around sunrizzze (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue Nov 10 at
0100 on WRMI 7780 via UTwente SDR, S9 but only poor and noisy.
Virginia, Maine and New York SDRs are not getting it or only traces.
At 0127 I try direct and get maybe a JBA carrier, while the other 7
MHz WRMIs, normally loud and clear aimed more thisaway, are also
severely degraded, 7570 JBA and 7730 JBA carrier. This is hard to
understand from WWV data at 00 and 03: K-index 0 and solar flux a
whopping 90! But MUF over FL-OK path is way, way down, as we are into
wintrish darkness.

Also confirmed UT Tue Nov 10 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG S9/+10 into TWR
Bonaire SDR; following the same Spanish ID twice by Dino at 0329-0330.
Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [new? unconfirmed]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 7505, Nov 10 at 0207, no signal from WRNO, suspect really
off rather than awful propagation; nor detectable at Bonaire, 0352
check; while at 0207, 5085, WTWW-2 is a poor S9 direct instead of
usual blaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6905.9-RCUSB, Nov 9 at 2356, drumming music, but
modulation is very defective and crackly, S6-S7 into Bonaire SDR.
Toggling the step-tuning in USB, zero-beat seems about 6905.80 but
when tuned to 6905.70 in SAM mode, the carrier offset reads out +230v
Hz, which adds up to 6905.93. Nov 10 at 0001, automated timecheck and
ROCV 6906 ID. Recheck at 0328, still the same distorted modulation
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Nov 10 from 0134
UT: more signals have a (2) beat than when I usually check later as
now more of Europe is still in darkness, even into AfroAsia. 531,
576(2), 639, 693, 711, 738, 747, 774(2), 837(2), 855(2), 882(2), 891*,
909, 936, 999, 1044(2), 1053(2), 1089*, 1098, 1107(2), 1134, 1152(2),
1215, 1305(2), 1413 kHz. *strongests, likely Algeria and UK (Glenn

``Quiénes somos. El Club de Radioaficionados Hidrocálidos es el más
antiguo y único radio club en la ciudad de Aguascalientes, cuenta con
un agrupación de socios y miembros que disfrutan de la afición a la
radio, la técnica, la educación y los aspectos tecnológicos de
comunicación del servicio de radioaficionados.

La membrecía al club está abierta a todos los operadores de radio de
aficionado con licencia vigente y usted puede solicitar personalmente
en cualquiera de nuestras reuniones afiliarse o enviar su petición por
correo electrónico o directamente al presidente de la mesa directiva
<xe1ih@yahoo.com>

El Club de Radio Aficionados Hidrocálidos fue fundado el 3 de
septiembre de 1970 al reunirse un grupo de personas interesadas en la
practica y la técnica de la radiocomunicación que se dan cita en la
Casa de La Cultura de esta Ciudad para organizarse y quedar
debidamente constituidos y registrados al formalizar y firmar una acta
constitutiva...``

If you are wondering about that name Hidrocálidos --- it`s just
another way of saying ``hot waters`` which is what Aguascalientes
really means. I wonder if it`s in common usage outside ham radio and
this club to refer to their city/state, as ``Aguascalienteño`` would
be rather cumbersome.

Rather like in New Lion, they don`t call themselves ``Monterreyanos``
but rather the classier ``Regiomontanos`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 12125, Nov 9 at 1502, S7-S9 of music and
soft talk in uncertain language, but not Chinese jamming. Scheduled is
RFA Tibetan via TINIAN this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2059 monitoring: confirmed Monday
November 9 from 1900:49 on IRRS, 7290 via BULGARIA. As usual via
UTwente SDR only, I tuned in earlier to catch the carrier cuton at
1855:39. At 1859:50 a few syllables of some extraneous talk, then
canned IRRS ID, with the questionable Milano PO box; 1909:20 `Feature
Story News` headlines only, before WOR start. To avoid any internet
delays, times here are based on unknown timesignal station on 5000
soon checked on same SDR, with a beep on the minute, but which? Not
WWV/H. Suppose it has to be BPM from Xi`an, China; nothing on 4996
from RWM Taldom, Russia.

Unfortunately there is as always *very heavy* splash from both sides.
When an hour earlier during DST, at least both splatters were 10 kHz
away, but now there`s CRI on 7295, as well as Vietnam still on 7280.
AMSynch would be preferred for best sound but it cannot escape them no
matter how narrowed. So listening on narrow LSB is slightly better
than AMS or USB. More unfortunately, the IRRS signal fades down during
the WOR semihour making us even more of a challenge to hear. I also
hear a WWCR1-style squeal which is likely out of the Secretbrod
transmitter. At 1927 toward the end, I also have a lite het from 7288,
maybe a ham from Region 2? A bit early for that. WOR ends at 1929:47,
IRRS ID and onward, but I fear most listeners would have given up by
now. I wonder if it`s this bad all over Europe? It would be nice if
IRRS could find a clearer frequency for all the 1900-2000 programs on
SW. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [new? unconfirmed]
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** ZAMBIA [non]. 17775-, Nov 9 at 1554, S9/+10 of dead air, or is
there some JBM? KVOH, Simi Valley, California, USA, is supposed to
start at 1500 on winter weekdays. Recheck at 1601, now I am surprised
to hear an ID in English by the well-known voice of Ray Robinson, as
``This is Radio Christian VOice, Lusaka; following program provided by
Strategic Communications Group, Ltd.``, and into praise music, not
`Frecuencia al Dia` in Spanish.

Before I could report this, Ray himself posted to the WOR iog at 1654
UT: ``Due to an equipment failure in the KVOH studio here in
California, we are currently relaying Voice of Hope - Africa
programming (in English) on the KVOH transmitter, at 17775 kHz.
Hopefully this will be for one day only, but you may be interested to
hear the anomaly. Ray.``

To which I replied: ``Ray, Yes, I already did, surprised to hear your
``Radio Christian Voice, Lusaka`` ID at 1601 on 17775-, Glenn``

But I wonder why he called it that instead of ``Voice of Hope -
Africa`` ? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6171-USB, Nov 9 at 0732, weak 2-way in Spanish when no
broadcasters are around here in their exclusive 49mb (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2319 UT November 9
