Subject: [WOR] Glenn Hauser log roundup March 12-19, 2020

** CUBA. 6000, March 12 at 0014, RHC is S9+20 but JBM and suptorted in
English, also some Spanish crosstalk; then English mod faded up a bit,
and it`s // clear undermodulated English on 6145, S9+20. Last night
RHC seemed to be starting the two English frequencies around 0100 but
tonight evidently they are trying for 0000. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6010v, March 12 at 0020, trying for COLOMBIA, I have a JBA
signal which is wobbling, perhaps caused by Doppler flutter, or two
stations slightly apart beating, one of them unstable. A slight peak
sounds like Chinese; or is it Spanish? Not Portuguese. Nothing else is
scheduled at this time but BRAZIL. Then I remember a previous finding:
another Cuban leapfrog mixing product of 5990 over 6000 another 10 kHz
beyond. At 0035 on second radio I can CONFIRM // audio 6010 and 5990,
so that`s exactly what it is now. The fulcrum RHC frequency 6000 has
to be on air at same time, and so it is tonight with undermodulated
English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2025)

** CUBA. 13780, March 12 at 1352, RHC here ex-13740; change or
mistake? Have used 13780 before; no obvious reason to move back and
forth. By 1437, 13780 is off. Still on 13700, spurless. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 12 at 2255, RHC in Brazuguese, and 2300 into
English. Finally four days after the imposition of yanqui-inspired
DST, RHC have found this transmission, moved one UT hour *later*
instead of logical earlier, ex-2200. Now probably at 2200 is French
ex-2100. 11880 was back on air yesterday but in Spanish before and
after 2300. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, still off the air March 13 at 2120 & 2155, but *2200
RHC on weakly direct in French. Via Bogotá KiwiSDR, in Portuguese
before 2300, 2300 switch to English, first item about someone killed
near the RHC studios. Sufficient but not super reception, while //
5040 is not making it there at all. Somethng`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13780, March 14 at 1343, RHC again here ex-13740 and // much
stronger 13700. By 1417, 13780 is still on with noisy dead air.

13756.580, March 14 at 1419, RHC spur VP. Not like the loud FM/AM
spurblobs sporadically out of 13700, rather clearly audible in AM mode
and precisely measurable with BFO; also is 56.58 kHz displaced, rather
than 66-70 kHz. I look for a match on the minus side and find a JBA
carrier on 13644.53, but calculated spot would be 13643.42 so maybe
that`s just a birdie. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, March 14 at 2015, RHC S9+20 in distorted Brazuguese,
while 15140 is in French. Both these had been scheduled at 2100-2130,
so bumped one real hour earlier. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 17480, March 14 at 2247, 5-digit spy numbers alternating with
digibeepery, S1-S4 and nothing higher on the 17 or 18 MHz bands (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, March 15 at 0543, RHC English JBM with crackle; 6060 VG
S9+10/20; 6100 S9+10 undermodulated; 6145 VP S7-S9; 5040 S9+10/20 and
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 17 at 1529, RHC S9+20, distorted and hummy as
usual. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, March 17 at 1936, RHC S9/+10 of dead air except for
some hum. Wiggle that patchcord. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
Recheck at 2114, now in Spanish, big hum still at S9+35 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 17 at 2300, RHC starting English // much weaker
5040; as they now seem certain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, March 18 at 0024, S9+20 of dead air from RHC -- so are
they attempting to start English at 0000? But at 0026, 6000 is JBM in
Spanish // much stronger 6060. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At
0129, both 6145 and 6000 feature Arnie Coro and both undermodulated so
impossible to make out what he is mumbling (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, March 18 at 1555, CRI relay is undermodulated with
hum, tone and crackle, otherwise excellent. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, March 18 at 1930, RHC still not on here, but later
with distortion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185.0, March 18 at 2355, XEPPM JBM with Mexican music, S9
signal; rather than no modulation audible yesterday. BTW, Radio
Educación has much more important matters on its mind: holding on to
MW 1060 after migration to FM is complete; seems 100 kW on MW has
better coverage than FM. Not a word however about SW here, tnx via GRA
blog:
https://www.americaeconomia.com/negocios-industrias/radio-educacion-busca-retener-la-historica-xeep-am-1060-de-la-ciudad-de-mexico
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 25, March 18 around 1600 UT, KWTV ``9``, OKC is not
decoding, and still not at 2115. Normally it`s in solid. I sent this
on webform to the news department:

``Why is there no way to reach the Chief Engineer via the website??
Just ``signal issues`` by phone only. Please pass this on to the CE.

Here in Enid today March 18, have not been able to decode KWTV on RF25
all day. Almost all other OKC signals are normal. Is it low-powered?
The signal level is BAD barely registering on set-top-box from my
rooftop antenna.

If not reduced power, I think the problem is DX interference. There is
currently enhanced strong level 5 tropospheric in this area, and I see
in listings there are low-powered channel 25 stations in about a dozen
other OK towns! {closest probably Ponca City; also Lawton, Tulsa...}
You should realize that this situation reduces your effective coverage
area! I don`t suppose you could do anything about it in the short
term, but you might in the long term.

BTW, KSBI on RF 23 has never been an adequate signal here like it was
on 51 (? I recall that was it). Most of the time it doesn`t decode
including now.

Yes, we have cable, but these stations are supposed to be ``local``.
Suddenlink has KSBI itself but not its extra channels. Of course we
have to depend on that when you pre-empt CBS on KWTV`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** PERU. 5980, March 18 at 2351, JJBBA carrier from Radio Chaski, so
weak that I can`t tell exactly when it cut off despite not much
jamming now. Increasing daylight on path may finish audibility before
the Cuban radio war does in A-20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391-MCW kHz, March 18 at 0700, ND beacon DDP, no dash
but very long pauses. It`s San Juan - Dorado, LMM airport, 1000 watts.
Classaxe.com shows it with unusually long cycle duration, 20.87
seconds. Format is ID + 6 second gap [what`s the difference?]. Last
logged here January 2 at 0714: both then and now I am tuned to
389-USB. Distance 3676 km = 2284 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ROMANIA. 7220, March 18 at 2350, RRI English fair, 300 kW at 300
degrees from Galbeni, supposed only for NW Europe but here we are
beyond, QRMing our extended hamband.

6035-6040-6045, March 18 at 2352, DRM noise, which is RRI English,
only 90 kW, 300 degrees from Galbeni also for Europe only.

6040 is in further use for Spanish on AM at 00-01 as heard before;
06-07 in French & English back to DRM; and 15-16 in German AM, the
last from Tsiganeshti (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, March 19 at 0100, checking what`s on WRMI now
that the 3-day RTI test should be over: It`s still running, Spanish,
and 0129 Chinese music, 0130 two WRMI IDs in Spanish by Dino & Jaime,
squeal, into unID music, Spanish? NOT Tirana which was showing up
here, nor on // 9395 where Albania is supposed to be. After 0200 RTI
yet again, including 0214 Chinese lesson for Spanish, not only on 5800
which normally stops at 0200, but on 7780, and with a good signal into
Colombia, 5010. What`s next? Has RTI decided to permanentize the
tests, or just haven`t reverted yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 383-MCW kHz, March 18 at 0702, NDB CNP, which is 25 watts
from Chappell, Nebraska. Chappell is on I-80 west of Ogallala, just
above the NE corner of Colorado (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2025 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday March 18
at 2100 on WBCQ 7490.2v, very poor.

Also confirmed UT Thu Mar 19 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, good via UTwente,
poor direct.

WOR 2026 should be ready by early UT Fri Mar 20 for first NAm
broadcast Friday at 2200 on WRMI 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2098.0, March 18 at 0548 UT, beep exactly every three
seconds, noticed as checking for 2097.3 beacon A, which has not been
heard in some time. Once before I had this beep and then found several
more at odd intervals up the 2 MHz band. This time there is lots of
storm noise and only other one found is on 2440. Previous:

``UNIDENTIFIED. 2098.0, 2166.0, 2231.0, 2298.0, 2800.0, Feb 16 at
0643-0713 UT, things that go beep in the night, CW carrier pips
exactly 3 seconds apart = 20 per minute on these even frequencies,
first noticed when I was checking beacon A on 2097.3. Then found more
as I tuned up, always on exact kHz, but not equally spaced: intervals
of 68, 65, 67 kHz but none around 2365 nor below around 2032 by 0653.
Not until 0713 did I find another, way up on 2800.0 but no others
around it. What in the world? Can`t totally rule out a local device,
but random frequencies would not all be exact; seems intentional``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ALBANIA [non]. 5800, March 18 at 0130, WRMI starts Radio Tirana IS,
usual canned opening by Klara that ``you can hear us only on
internet``, yeah right; then I find also on // 9395 after Argentina,
q.v., concluded. Mixup in System feeds? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA [non]. 15475.97-CUSB, March 17 by 1904, no signal from
LRA36; they had told Manuel Méndez, Spain of a special `Corazón
Antártico` show at 1900 today. Not only no signal here but via several
SDRs checked; not could anyone else hear it. Then Manuel agrees it was
a no show but he heard it on webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, UT Wed March 18 at 0124, RAE English via
WRMI, concluding Ten Argentines who became world-famous, with Daniel
Barenboim, as the finale of Beethoven`s Ninth is playing, then
applause. 0125 into multi-lingual RAE ID reel; S9+20 while some nights
it`s JBA. 0130 into Radio Tirana which is also on unscheduled 5800
which before 0130 was testing TAIWAN, q.v; see also ALBANIA [non].

As for RAE in Spanish, skedgrid updated March 8 now shows half an hour
of it at 0130 on 9395 --- where we just heard Albania following RAE in
English; and a full hour at 0100 on 5800 --- not, either! Where we
just heard Taiwan and Albania (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, March 17 at 1529, RHC S9+20, distorted and hummy as
usual. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, March 17 at 1936, RHC S9/+10 of dead air except for
some hum. Wiggle that patchcord. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
Recheck at 2114, now in Spanish, big hum still at S9+35 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 17 at 2300, RHC starting English // much weaker
5040; as they now seem certain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, March 18 at 0024, S9+20 of dead air from RHC -- so are
they attempting to start English at 0000? But at 0026, 6000 is JBM in
Spanish // much stronger 6060. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At
0129, both 6145 and 6000 feature Arnie Coro and both undermodulated so
impossible to make out what he is mumbling (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7295, March 17 at 1800 via UTwente SDR, IRRS VG signal
but intolerable CCI from Iran which was already here until 1820v. I
was going to listen to a bit of `War Room Pandemic` with an abundance
of skepticism since Steve Bannon is behind it (his voice?).

Check again concluding at 1850 saying second hour is coming up --- but
not here:

7290, March 17 at 1900, abrupt frequency jump amid IRRS ID, to avoid
CRI on 7295, and into EGR gospel huxter from a town called Cuba, no
more WRP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 7450, March 17 at 0542, poor in high noise level,
S6-S7; in French thought I heard a Voix de l`Amérique ID, but
scheduled as NHK World Radio Japon, 0530-0600, 500 kW, 190 degrees via
Issoudun, FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 11640, March 17 at 2117 VP S1-S3 M&W conversation in English.
It`s a rare half-hour transmission from CRI at 2100-2130, 100 kW, 111
degrees away from Bamako (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185.00, March 18 at 0021, XEPPM S9/+10 carrier, maybe JBM,
XEPPM back on frequency after stuck on 6185.7v equally useless for
several days altho I did not keep logging them (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 341-MCW kHz, March 17 at 1517 UT, no signal
from my only local ND beacon, EI at Woodring Airport; it goes and
comes. I strain vs high noise level and there seems to be a trace of
another, most likely OIN in Oberlin KS; both 25 watts. Had not been
hearing EI either for a couple of nights; at best it`s always much
weaker than constant day & night 515-MCW kHz, PN in out-of-town Ponca
City, despite also nominally 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3 WBFM, March 16 circa 2230 UT, K202BY Enid is back on
after off a few days, with KJIL IDs, its new translator primary, and
again blocking not only 88.3 stations but 88.1 KWOU, and my RF feeders
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME. 13590.059V, March 17 at 1944, very weak talk, S5-S6,
language uncertain; carrier is wavering slightly as I measure it.
Scheduled is VOA via Pinheira, 19-20 UT in English. Yes, one of the
USAGM sites with broken frequency control (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, March 17 at 0121, Chinese lesson for Spanish,
practicing tones, so it`s the last of three RTI experiments via WRMI.
At 0130, 5800 goes into Radio Tirana // 9395; maybe a System switching
anomaly? See ALBANIA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 17 at 2300, no signal from VOT English to us,
another day AWOL; or late maybe; did not recheck later (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5896.5-USB, March 18 at 0028, ``Region 6 SHARES net`` headed
by NCS 307 and stronger NCS 387; 0031 contact from even stronger
AFA6AG [fonetik] vs storm noise crashes. Fortunately no broadcasters
on 5890, 5895 or 5900 now. Who and where is AFA6AG? MARS IDs seem
well-concealed: no significant hits on web search, but lots of crazy
stuff including Latin.

Search of UDXF iog gets a few hits, this being latest:

``5896.5 (USB) SHARES night primary / Coordination Nets
FEMA joint amateur/government (digital) 5378.0 (ALE) FEMA 5402.0 (ALE)
FEMA 5403.5 (USB) FEMA Regions 1-4, 6; MERS Maynard, Thomasville,
Denton 5732.0 (ALE) COTHEN 5821.0 (ALE) FEMA 5896.5
By Utility World (Hugh Stegman) · #88956 · 09/01/19``

My previous log of this: ``5896.5-USB, UT Wednesday April 18, 2018, at
0008, MARS net headed by NCS387 with much weaker contacts AFA6AG and
AFA6TG. I wonder if FCC ordered WWCR off 5890 because of this, besides
their {temporarily! gh, 2020} banning Brother HyStairical with no
replacement; so could it resume that frequency if it wanted to?``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13963.5-USB, March 17 at 1523, intermittent contacts, JBA,
involving BX, 1525 stronger 2AO, Tango, whether 030 be copied? Calls
fonetik, anyway. Correlates with this recent UDXF iog log:

``13963.5 HIGH CARD TANGO (US ARMY MARS Strategic Net) 1521 UTC ALE to
HIGH CARD GULF who passed MIL STD 110A to other stations but had tech
problems (31/01/20) (GWR) Gary W Russell, Central, IL`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. WRMI: see ALBANIA [non], ARGENTINA [non], TAIWAN [non]

** U S A. 9330, March 17 at 1532, WLCR via WBCQ is on today, unlike
yesterday morning, gospel huxter in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, March 18 at 0035, surprised to find this WBCQ on early
with an AAAWWW replay of last week`s show where he reads a piece by an
anti-socialist young woman grad student; S9 but storm crashes from S/SW
of here hit S9+10. Then I find same on 7490.2, much stronger. At 0126,
5130 with presumed weekly UT Wed W5KUB ham show, discussing launching
$ 200 balloons (vs much stronger ham show on 5085 WTWW -- but W5KUB has
the advantage of mainly being a video webcast).

5130 is not sked to be on before 0100 with `Amateur Radio Roundtable`,
while 7490 at 00-01 is an Available Time Slot (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13785, March 17 at 1521-1522* gospel music, abruptly cut
off the air. What`s this? Nothing normally here. Saudi is scheduled
until 1400 and Oman after 1600, one or both probably imaginary.
Possibly WHRI test, which plans to use 13785 in A-20, Sundays only at
20-22 in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
