Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Jan 26 at 1528, JBA S4 talk, 1529
music, 1533 ``Nacional Antártida Argentina`` ID, into Campo, Brasil
SDR, so LRA36 is active again on a Wednesday only. Seems to be off by
1544, not audible at Pardinho either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. At 0442 UT Jan 26, I posted this ASAP to the WOR, NRC,
IRCA, ABDX, ODXA and AMFMTVDX groups; and here slightly updated:

CHHA cedes 1610 modulation to CHRN --- 1610 kHz: from 0345 UT Jan 26,
I have a rather strong open carrier with some hum, S Asian music and
talk underneath which continues past 0400 contrary to CHHA`s year-old
program schedule from Toronto which shows on weeknights: 0200 UT
Tagalog, 0300 Italian, 0400 Portuguese, not until 0500 Punjabi.

Similar situation at the Milton Ont KiwiSDR, where it does not sound
like a near-local signal. It certainly does tune below 1.8 MHz. Anyhow
this OC must not be a new or nearby TIS.

IRCA Mexican log shows a CP as of 2021, power unknown, for a XESCAA in
Zacapú, Michoacán, R. Cultural del Villa de Carbón, SA. Nothing much
yet on the Brownsville SDR.

At 0406 the S Asian station with AC 514 ad and address of 595 Victoria
Ave. 0421 with CHRN ID after some ads. So Montréal`s Asian station is
making it thru tnx to CHHA in dead air. Both loop about the same from
here, NE/SW. CHRN occasionally surges while CHHA carrier fades. Have
not heard CHRN before as CHHA is right between us. CHRN is only 1 kW,
while CHHA is 10; but CHRN recently added a relay in Brampton Ont on
1350.
`
It`s Radio Humsafar, but referred to everywhere merely as ``Asian``
--- but which language(s), in particular the one right now? Still past
0437 and not a peep from CHHA. 73, Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, USA

After first hearing it direct, further obs via the Milton SDR. 0444
Montréal ad in English; 0555 a 514 AC ad, Laval mentioned, still under
the CHHA OC. No ID heard around 0600. Back to direct for final check:
0708 still dead air atop CHRN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Jan 26 at 0718, RHC English still on with humbuzz, and
6100 clear; 5040 Spanish; but rest of The Cuban Five, 9700, 6000 are
off. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side ---

the other Guantánamo: ``Cuba: A Good Island for Torture:
The Shakira, El Potro, and Cama Turca are names that prisoners have
given to some of the harsh punishments inflicted at Cuban prisons. The
regime denies them, but more and more accounts have been conveyed.
DIARIO DE CUBA presents a broad sampling of them in this report. Yoe
Suárez, La Habana, 24 Ene 2022 - 14:46 CET``
https://diariodecuba.com/derechos-humanos/1643032017_37011.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.605, Jan 26 at 2211, R. Cairo check into UTwente: no
signal locking, but the random tones, altho brief lox show
9899.523/524, presumably not a Cairo remnant (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SINGAPORE. 7355, Jan 26 at 1624, English language lesson for
Koreans, ``the most serious``, S9/+10 and hardly anything else left on
40m SWBC band, not even NZ 7390 scheduled until 1650. It`s BBC via
Kranji at 1530-1830, 250 kW at 25 degrees, which is aimed across
Alaska right at Enid far beyond; but should be useful for any North
Koreans around here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, Wed Jan 26 at 1618, S9/+10 of dead air in Spanish
from REE; while JBA 11685 is modulating talk at 1620, but 12030 is
still dead: the E hemisphere channels, while the WHem ones 9690 &
11940 will not be on until 1900 weekdays. Something`s always
nonsensical at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 26 at 2257, VOT IS at S9+5/15 into Knoxville SDR
over BBC Oman not closed quite yet. Opening English at 2300, into
UTwente, undermodulated with squeal but readable; 2348 direct reads
S9+10/20 but undermodulated and not readable; at 2350 it`s S9+50 into
UTwente! sufficient with IS, no squeal, over CCCCCCI ripple until
2357* DSDTürkei cut off after first spurious German ID, uncovering
Urumqi, standard remark. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St.
Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio:
JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees. Dear Glenn:
World of Radio #2121, #2122, confirmed, below with Details:

9395, late tuning 0146, 0158 (45443), 0159, January 20 UT 2022 [Thu]
5850, signal 30 level, 0130, 0143, 0156 (55444), (55445), 0159,
January 21 UT [Fri]
7730, S9 signal, variable, 0030, 0044 (45433), 0059, Jan 23 UT [Sun}
5950, siren jamming, buzzer, 2330, 2343 (45343), 2358, January 23 UT
[Sun]
7730, 0053, 0058 (45443), 0059, January 24 UT [Mon]
9955, 2330, 2351 (45433), 2359, January 25 UT [Tue]
5850, slight QRN, 1030, 1059 (55444), (55433), 1059, Jan 26 UT [Wed]
(Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Confirmed Tuesday January 25 at 2330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/28 into
Aguadas, Colombia SDR.

Not checked since asleep Wed Jan 26 at 1030 on WRMI 5850; but Richard
got it, above.

Also confirmed Wednesday January 26 at 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490+, S7/S8
into W8BUG SDR Knoxville displaying carrier offset +185, up to +190 Hz
by 2230. But measured direct at 2232, only 7490.160; then calibrating
W8BUG vs WWV, claims 5000.021 and 10000.041 and varying slightly! So
at 7.5 MHz it would be reading about .031 high, and WWV certainly not
varying! So that makes my own measurement much more accurate. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Oceanic JBA MW carrier searches: not much lately
with depressed condx, ``mid-winter anomaly``? Jan 26 at 0342, only
detected are 684, 999 and 1107, all likely Spain.

I try again Jan 26 at 0710 and detect only these very weakies: 837,
1017-2, 1107, 1215-2. 1017 not a common TA, intriguing, could
reactivated A3Z TONGA be participating? Certainly possible as
Nuku`alofa sunset was 0627 UT. Otherwise could only be two 10 kW in
Spain. However not getting any TPs on 846, 1098.

About 1017 Tonga, this is pertinent, via Steve Whitt, MWCircle iog:

``Tonga update --- 1017 TONGA A3Z, Nuku'alofa. The recent earthquake
[sic] and tsunami definitely haven't affected the signal from this DU
blaster, with S9 peaks every morning. The usual male announcer is
booming at 1448 on 01/18
https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/t4k86icb6e2orjq7cit4ih9o48tn4u5n
Usual female announcer introduces S9 island music at 1503 on 01/19
https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/n0h4jyrgig04l5jzfu6j9wm19qfx0ycd
Gary DeBock (DXing at the Rockwork 4 ocean cliff from January 18-21).

Yes, Steve, despite the dreary conditions and the recent earthquake
and tsunami in Tonga, I can assure all the MWC members that 1017-A3Z's
signal is not only unaffected, but stronger than ever.

Last week at the Rockwork cliff (in Oregon) it was an S9 blaster every
morning enhancement session, making me wonder if perhaps the salt
water tsunami had boosted the ground conductivity around the antenna
site, resulting in an enhanced transoceanic signal <g>
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Jan 26 at 0713 UT, JBA music, presumably a N
American pirate - hit here at end of a 9-kHz MW carrier search (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0039 UT January 27

More correxions, unfortunately; or rather fortunately, fixing times:

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Jan 24 at 2300, no signal direct from VOT English to
North America, so I may listen to Spain and WEZL. But never give up?
Recheck at 2346, now it`s on S9/+10, but music just barely modulated.
So that`s the defective transmitter they have chosen to run today.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. At 2356 I can recognize the
JBM IS, and ID interruptions in German; 2400 timesignal 2 seconds
later than WWV, and opening German, spurious unscheduled broadcast, no
telling for how long. Something`s doubly erroneous at Emirler. [...]

Correcting frequency, 15680 not 15685, and another typo:

** GERMANY [non]. 15680, Jan 25 at 1547, S8/S9+10 sounds like German,
so it can`t be DWelle --- but listed as MALgache from AWR Talata,
MADAGASCAR relay! Oops, MAL there stands for Malayalam, which is a
language in India, not Malaysia; as on page 499, WRTH 2022 under where
else, Thailand. Up the dial, 15770 definitely in German, so can`t be
DW either: WRMI must be a segment in the multilingual SMTV, which EiBi
and Aoki both imagine be all-English, which seems to be the default
for programmers such as SMTV, too lazy to be explicit (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.605, Jan 24 at 2108, R. Cairo, S9+30 of nothing but
some hum into UTwente; by 2115 some occasional clix but no English
program modulation.

9899.605, Jan 25 at 2219, 25 hours later this time with extreme
unreadable distortion, not even obviously English, sounds like rubbing
a balloon. At least the off-frequency has been quite stable from night
to night. Off by 2245, so the SDR produces random tones among the
noise. What more can be said about this saduation?

Zach Liangas and Harold Frodge reported Cairo also distorted before
2100 for the French broadcast on 9884.6. What about Portuguese
scheduled to overlap from 2215 to 2330 on 9545? Also Abis but would
have to be a second transmitter. AFAIK this has not been reported in a
long time, nor the following imaginaries, 2330-0045 Arabic on 9730,
0045-0200 Spanish on 9900, all three for S America (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15685, Jan 25 at 1547, S8/S9+10 sounds like German,
so it can`t be DWelle --- but listed as MALgache from AWR Talata,
MADABASCAR relay! Oops, MAL there stands for Malayalam, which is a
language in India, not Malaysia; as on page 499, WRTH 2022 under where
else, Thailand. Up the dial, 15770 definitely in German, so can`t be
DW either: WRMI must be a segment in the multilingual SMTV, which EiBi
and Aoki both imagine be all-English, which seems to be the default
for programmers such as SMTV, too lazy to be explicit (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Jan 25 at 1550, ME music S6-S9, two
carriers slightly apart, obvious double-het with offset USB tuning to
11529, i.e. Turkish jammer and Dengê Welat, but which is atop? Aoki
ignores the jammer but shows D.W. site switch from PRIDNESTROVYE to
FRANCE at 1500; EiBi says the change is at 1700! And also shows
Turkish jammer for entire span 0600-1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Jan 24 at 2257, pirate music S8-S9,
``trance``? At first I thought it was AM, but the temporary
``carrier`` must have been some drone in the music. I bet it`s not
RCW, Chile, allegedly active around this daypart on this bandpart.
However, switching to LSB, I can hear some weak talk mixing with
remnants of the music beat. Off at 2306? No, just a pause, more music.
I`m in and out checking other stuff and never catch a voice
announcement, but 2312 SSTV beepery, a quick CW message my brain
doesn`t switch gear into in time, but it starts with WE---; more SSTV
to 2314.6*; *2315 songs, 2327 chopped and then another. Not recheck
until 2347 on other receiver and now it seems really off. These
confirm it`s WEZL and with an intriguing high-quality image:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,92102.0.html
Presumably unrelated to the licensed WEZL, 100 kW on 103.5 FM in
Charleston SC since 1971y. So much for pirates avoiding real callsigns
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4810, Jan 25 at 0721, not even a JBA carrier, which was about
all I could get from R. Logos, nor for the past triple weeks in
bandscans, last logged here during this hour on Jan 1 & 4. Of course
it could still be on at other dayparts, not overnight. Last logs I
find of it were Jan 11 by LOB in Brasil, Jan 13-14 by Wilkner, FL,
both circa 0000 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 24 at 2300, REE token English opens with Justin
Coe preview including Amy Egan with Spanish idioms and expressions:
that should be interesting; starts at 2308 after the news. Tho
S9+15/25 on the meter, reception is not at all clear and I can`t
follow it, anyway lasting only until 2311 before back to Justin to
interview someone who has just returned from UKOGBANI (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 24 at 2300, no signal direct from VOT English to
North America, so I may listen to Spain and WEZL. But never give up?
Recheck at 2346, now it`s on S9/+10, but music just barely modulated.
So that`s the defective transmitter they have chosen to run today.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. At 2256 I can recognize the
JBM IS, and ID interruptions in German; 2300 timesignal 2 seconds
later than WWV, and opening German, spurious unscheduled broadcast, no
telling for how long. Something`s doubly erroneous at Emirler.

6125, Jan 25 at 0430, final repeat of VOT English to us is also JBM,
useless despite S9/+10. Triply erroneous.

5960, Jan 25 at 2300-2309+, NO signal into UTwente, after BBC Oman
closed at 2259.5. Who knows whether VOT will eventually wake up and/or
modulate decently. At *2311 East Turkistan, land of genocide against
Uighurs and other Moslems, cuts on Mandarin in progress and in the
clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re 198 kHz, DI_W: a reply Jan 24 at 2147 UT: ``Hi Glenn!
Several posts today on ndblist@groups.io indicate that DIW-198 was
again keying properly. Steve Howe, Saint Albans, VT`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring, next:
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
