Hauser
** COLOMBIA. 6016.84, July 15 at 0211, JBA carrier, presumably this as
reported a few nights ago: ``COLOMBIA, 6017, Organización Radial El
Prado, 0353-0357*, 09-07, after many months without hearing it, today
on air with Colombian song and closing transmission with the national
anthem of Colombia. 15422. Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, Log in
Reinante, NW of Spain, Sangean ATS 909X, Tecsun PL-880, cable antenna,
8 meters``. And he reports it again just now: ``6016.9, Organización
Radial El Prado, 0128-0137, 15-07, Spanish, comments, Latin American
songs. 15421.`` Two sesquiyears ago it was reported on 6016.4 and
6016.7. Wethinx this be a pirate; not in WRTH 2024 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, UT Monday July 15 at 0219, RHC English propaganda, VG
S9+30 here and nowhere else, not even 6000. A bit of studio reverb and
YL accent impaired comprehension. At 0234, Elena Valverde with
``Caribbean Outlook Show`` about H. Beryl damage to several Windward
islands [or it seems that Windward & Leeward have fallen out of
fashion; unofficial anyway]. The Other Side:

``Where are you going, Cuba? --- Fidel Castro lost the country. Today,
Castroism is just struggling to stay in power, at any cost.
Jorge A. Sanguinetty, Miami 09 Jul 2024 - 21:26 CEST
Cuban emigrants on a raft. Getty Images

Pursuing his cardinal goal of perpetuating himself in power, in 1959
Fidel Castro planted the seeds of a crisis that today seems to be
finally winding to an end. The bearded commander rose to power on a
scaffolding of unaccountable government so that he could implement his
personal agenda, breaking his promise to restore the 1940 Constitution
and hold democratic elections, as it was always his aim —privately
confessed to his most trusted confidante, Celia Sánchez— to foment
perpetual confrontation with the United States, perhaps because he
felt despised by how Washington treated him, perhaps because it was
the only enemy as enormous as his ego...``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5955, July 15 at 0607, not wideband noise with hum centered
here, unlike the usual pulse-jamming sound against no R. República
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, July 15 at 1455, RHC at S6/S8 of dead air, some hum,
not sure if JBM. Not found anywhere else, 15140 missing as usual.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 15 at 1915, NO signal from RHC`s first English
broadcast of the day - make that zeroeth, as usual. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. However, it can happen: Ron Trotto, IL, had it on July
12; and Rick Barton, AZ, on July 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, July 16 at 0137, S9/+20 of dead air in Spanish from
RHC. Nothing at all on possible English frequencies, 11950, 9700,
6000. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, July 16 at 0151, no signal from R. Progreso; but 5025
R. Rebelde is on at S9+20/30 somewhat distorted. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, July 15 at 0201, pirate music at S7/S8,
interrupted for announcement at 0202, ``go to wix.com [??], single
life portal [?] platform``, back to music. Filed here as WIND tho no
one seems to quote an ID by those letters:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,131537.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6938.0 AM, July 15 at 0203, JBM talk at S7. Probably
a pirate, but nothing in HFU recently on this frequency/mode (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Mon July 15 at 2200, token English from SNR, VG
direct and also audible on 17715, 15520, 15390. Preview topic to be
about the province of León pushing for autonomy from Castilian
domination (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Sunday July 14 at 2201, not off the air, VOT
English underway, olds by Ms Badax, S9+40 into UTwente. 2209 `Weekly
Analysis` on the NATO/Washington summit. 2213 music. 2218 `Letterbox`
intro but plays a tune first before host speaks at 2224. Opens mail
for first time, almost all QSL requests, some with standard wording,
from: Japan where it`s rainy season. Handwritten from Spain, can`t
make out name. Miss Mei Lin in Szechuan, China says she wrote 8
letters last year and 4 so far this year without any replies: host
thinx it`s because altho wrote in English, address is in Chinese only,
which the QSL dept. can`t handle. Another from Spain, ditto. A.
Klepov, Moscow, a regular. Another from Russia. Andrei Kuznetsov, a
Russian name in Riga, ``Letonia``. ``Eugene`` K. in Russia. Craig
Tyson, Perth, Australia, two in a row. Jayanta Chakroborty, India.
Says QSLs in postal mail should arrive with stamps [rather than
metered?]. Two more from Tyson = four reports for four days in a row.
2240 time`s up, ``goodbye, my lovely dear listeners``, music fill
again until 2240 `L`box` intro/outro plays again, then music outside
it. 2250 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2252 Ms Badax s/off as if the
1230 on 17620, IS until chop at 2254.8* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.019, Mon July 15 at 2205, VOT English not off the
air, but unreadable direct at only S9 level equal to noise. 2225 into
UTwente when measured, S9+35/45, `The Energy Agenda` repeat about
effects of Russian/Ukrainian war. 2231 Ms Badax with `That`s Why`,
black is not a color. 2235 music. 2239 multi-lingual ID filler reel.
2241 music. 2253 Badax s/off as 1230 on 17620. 2254.7 IS main theme
only twice before chop by 2255* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 7260 AM, July 16 at 0147 snippet of music
recognizable as one of the themes duriing VOT English. This is Spanish
as sked; also an LSB ham right on frequency for free BFO (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7630.5 USB, July 16 at 0141, military net with quick 2-way
voice contacts, callsigns abbreviated but unreadable; pauses for
``test messages`` in digihash. Searching frequency in UDXF iog gets a
few hits as USAF MARS no more recently than 2014y; nothing on exact
frequency in 2022y Klingenfuß (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2251 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 14 at 2000 on WRN Europe webcast.

Also confirmed Sunday July 14 at 2155 the 2130 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, into UTwente, S9+10 on 6160.000, S9/+5 on 3975.004.

73702.

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to:
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 9955, July 15 at 0604, WRMI is off again instead
of persistent late extension, leaving 9960 VANUATU alone but JBA. 9955
is still on past 1500 July 15, S4/S6 like noise level, cannot discern
if modulated. 5010 was also off at 0604, as it would usually match
9955 late activity (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, July 15 at 0600, still no signal from WMLK, which
should have started at 0400 on a non-Sabbathday. Not a peep from
DEJOM. Usual spread of several other mostly JBA signals on 19mb. BUT:

9275 *is* on July 15 at 1739, VG S9+10/25 into Maine SDR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1549.82 approx., July 15 at 0225, carrier/het to 1550.00
stations. Like I logged May 16 at 0627 on 1549.91. Not to be confused
with tones flanking 1650, as I was about to (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1649.58 & 1650.42 approx., July 15 at 0612, ~420 Hz tone
against a FSR 1650 station, which would be KCNZ Iowa; so this is
something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Over-the-Horizon radar rapid clickery in three different
spans with the same sound, approx.:
15942-15966, July 15 at 0157, S9
9152-9176,  July 15 at 0216, S7
12167-12190, July 15 at 0230.
Note the `typical` bandwidth about 24 kHz. From Europe, or Asia?

Hauser
** CUBA. 9790, July 14 at 0321, CRI English relay S9+30/40,
conversation in Americanish English sounds so normal, but quite
undermodulated, e.g. compared to 9740 RRI English. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 9440, July 14 at 0316 Japanese at S9+20/30; must be
NHK. Yes: EiBi shows via FRANCE to ME at 03-05, overlapping // 6105 to
CAm at 02-04. Always very strong incidentally into deep NAm (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6850 USB, July 14 at 0303, heavy beat rock at S9+20,
think I just missed an ID, the OPOB, off by 0336 check. These say it`s
Radio 48/Mix Radio International, starting at 2319 July 13:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,131482.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1390 and // but ~6 words behind on 1640, July 14 at 0258
UT, KCRC & KZLS Enids have finally resumed modulations, 19 hours and
46 minutes after first noted silents, with Fox Sports Radio nonsenses
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.9, July 14 at 0331 UT, Enid CB pirate // 105.5
K288FX gospel music, not very undermodulated, and nothing on 27225v
this time, but quite a het from a 27184.6 carrier (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** ROMANIA. 15325-15330-15335, July 14 at 0327 DRM noise at S9+10, RRI
Tsiganeshti site for South Asia in English; hardly necessary with VG
AM signal for us on 9740 from Galbeni (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, continued from last report, VOT English July 13:
2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo again; 2254 s/off as if on 17620 at
1230; 2255 IS to 2255.6* chop (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2251 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 13 at 2300 on WTWW 9474.981, S6/S9 into Maine SDR. A few minutes
earlier the signal direct faded way down, SID? Gradually recovered but
level in Maine is lower than it should be.

Also confirmed UT Sunday July 14 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, S7/9+5 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday July 14 from 0445 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, the
nominal 0315v very sesquihour late, S9+25 direct, and also via nearby
remote, following ARRL Audio News which at 0432 followed interminable
Houston Hamsat, which started at 0336 following TWIAR. HHS nominal
time is 0200! No offense, but I wonder if anyone outside Houston
really be interested in listening to that.

Also confirmed Sunday July 14 at 1900 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.994
kHz, noisy S8 across Europe into Utwente. Next:

2130 UT Sunday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160;
2330 UT Sunday WRMI 7570 to NW;
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW;

** U S A. 9395, July 14 at 0650, WRMI-6 in German, mentions tofu, and
apparently a recipe recited; not // 9455, WRMI-5 with TOMBS. Surely
the German is Supreme Master TV cult, unpredictably multi-lingual. But
skedgrid claims during this hour it`s on both frequencies. SMTV is
System J, but there is no separate ``J`` program schedule below,
skipping from H to K (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1649.585 & 1650.415 approx., July 14 at 0640, double het
against 1650 stations, i.e. a tone of about 415 Hz transmitted instead
of something off-frequency. There are only six US stations on 1650,
two Canadians, and zero Mexicans. Normally dominant are KCNZ IA or
KBJD CO, and despite proximity, hardly KFSW AR > really in OK (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. RF 19, July 14 at 1525 UT, STB gets BAD signal here,
which means it`s not KAUT OKC in ATSC 3.0, invisible but normally 
blocking anything else, antenna still aimed at OKC. Tropo is up to the north,
so presumably 1000 kW KWCH Hutchinson/Wichita KS which is not 3.0, for
the first time. Also BAD signals on RF 8 & 10 correlating with Hutch/Wich
market (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, July 13 at 0626, no signal from R. Progreso, so last
night running 3 hours past usual 0400* must have been a fluke, or in
Spanish not fluco but casualidad. 5025 Rebelde is on now (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1390, July 13 at 0712 UT, S9+70 of dead air from local
KCRC a few km away from me, rather than stupid sports talk. Trace of
other station(s) underneath, which I might have tried to pull by
nulling if it were not so late. Guess what? It`s still DA at 1544 UT
recheck. Is no one there or paying attention on Saturday mornings?
Guess what2? Its sibling station 1640 KZLS is also DA at 1545. And
both still dead at 1846! And 2210!! They are at radically diverse
transmitter sites. How about other CTB stations on FM? 107.1 & 106.3 &
97.7 & 96.9 & 95.7 are OK at 1545. Who cares about AM? (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, July 13 at 2200, VOT English not off the air but
VG S9+35/45 into UTwente, s/on as if on 17620 at 1230, preview
features to be `The Energy Agenda` and `Turkey`s Geomarked Products`.
Music by 2209. At 2222, `TEA`, How did the Russia-Ukraine war affect
energy prices? They went up. Stats about how much energy of different
kinds, such as LNG, were still imported into Europe from Russia, much
of it via pipelines thru Turkey. 2229 song. 2232 multi-lingual ID
filler reel, music. 2238 ``always-by-your-side`` promo. 2239 music.
2242 `TGP` about embroidering beads and sequins on jackets. 2242
music, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2251 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday July 13 at 0400 on WTWW 5085, VG direct; followed 0429 by
`Ancient Word Radio` ID, a bit of music until chop at 0430.5*.

Also confirmed Saturday July 13 at 1437 the 1430 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, 6160.000, S6/S8 into UTwente; and:

``WOR 2251 confirmed at 1430 UT Saturday SW Radio, Germany 6160.000.8
S9 + 5dB / 10dB on local Kiwi at Bremerhaven.
S9 * 10dB /20dB on southern Bavarian Kiwi

S9 on UTwente - bad SNR imho
Lesley Illingworth reporting. Thanks for DX show.``

Also confirmed Saturday July 13 at 1600 on WRN North America webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday July 13 at 1736 the 1730 on SW Gold Radio,
Germany, S9+15/20 on 6160.000, S7/S8 on 3975.003 into UTwente.

Also confirmed Saturday July 13 after 1930 on WRMI webcast only and

** CUBA. 4765, July 12 at 0654, R. Progreso is still on, S9+5/10: as
if in response to my observation why not run 24h like Rebelde - which
happens also to be on 5025 now and even modulating. Manuel Méndez,
Spain also reported it direct, ``CUBA, 4765, Radio Progreso, Bejucal,
0447-0515, 12-07, extra time today, Spanish, usual closing time at
about 0400, comments, ID at 0502 “Radio Progreso, Cadena Nacional, la
Onda de la Alegría, transmitiendo desde La Habana…”, more comments and
Cuban songs. 15422`` - And Zacharias Liangas, Greece: ``Just now 0636
via the TWR Bonaire, signal -85 with fading width of 25 db and
variation program, someone talking and music behind`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [non]. 9955, Fri July 12 at 0630, WRMI relay of RFI in
Spanish, timecheck as 1 AM in Paris, so original airing was 23 UT.
Obscures 9960 much weaker VANUATU. WRMI skedgrid of System B still
claims RFI is at 05-06, and on internet only except Sat & Sun. Wrong,
wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.576 & 27224.900 approx., July 12 at 2158 UT, Enid
CB pirate // relaying 105.5 translator of KYLV during gospel music,
and talk at 2216 when measured; both S9+20, but lower one just barely
modulated (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, July 12 at 2018 UT, KOSU with `Oklahoma Music
Minute`, periodic filler during NPR breaks, in this case amid ATC; on
behalf of its alter-ego The Spy: I make a point of checking, and no,
they do not turn $ tereo back on for that, staying in daytime mono,
resulting in ``flat`` music (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri July 12 at 2200, token English from SNR, S9+20/30
direct and also audible on 17715, 15520 but JB on 15390. Preview to be
something about an exhibition of uniforms; 2202.3 news starting with
political fight about how to handle transferring migrant miners from
Canarias to Peninsula - no, minors, about underage migrants; and about
the rights of and compensation for victims of the Franco dictatorship
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785+, Fri July 12 at 2200, VOT English has just come on
at S9+20, s/on as if on satellite and streaming only, ignoring SW:
something`s always awry at Ankara. At 2215 music already. 2232 switch
to UTwente at S9+50 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2243 `That`s
Why` for the first time voiced by the OM with 100% comprehension
rather than Ms. Badax, about billions/trillions of nonhuman cells

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` check of WBCQs July 12 at 2340 into Quebec SDR:
3265 & 5130 off. 6160 -69 Hz = 6159.931, TOMBS at S9/+10. 7490 -69 Hz
= 7489.931, FKB at S9+5/15. By 2348, however 5130 -72 Hz = 5129.928 is
also on with FKB, S9/+10 but noisy. At 2350, 3265.149 has also come on
with FKB, noisy S7/S9. I stay with 5130-. 2359 one-minute-warning tone
and wrapup, amen. Then AW about clix, ``hit-it`` and 0000 July 13, WTO
theme. Starts talking about toilet and politix before theme ends. 0003
brings up sweetheart on phone. Trimulcasting on 7490, 5130, coughs,
3265. Drinx just a little bit of Chocolate Bailey with reduced alcohol
content at the end of a day twice a week. 0016 datestamp as 12 of
July, YOOLF 2024. General monologue about protecting our Earth. If
humanity can make flush toilets, why not solve greater problems?
Angela barely gets in a word edgewise and is liable to be talked over
when she does - not in disagreement, of course. She objects to Black
cable channels - isn`t that being racist? At 0040, 5130 suddenly dumps
off the air, so I change to 3265. At 0042, he reads the basic aims of
Project 2025 -- they sound very radical and it`s hard to believe even
he would approve of them. Then they agree that P2025 is ``backlash``,
i.e. blaming the Left - ``communist Democrats``, ``nitwits are running
the country``, the Constitution being violated - implying that the
MAGAs would not. But listening to the entire hour, I do not hear them
mention *rump by name, once! At 0054 he starts to repeat
``trimulcasting``, but realizes that 5130 has gone off, that happens,
so he resets it. 0056 a bit of email. 0058 Free Radio Weekly received
but no time to quote much of it beyond my log of Ball Smacker Radio,
not credited of course. 0059 prayer, 0100 ID by Angela, and over to
Hal Turner a few sex late just as he is talking about his SW coverage.
Both 3265 and 5130 are off by 0237 recheck, probably much earlier
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, Fri July 12 at 0632, NO signal from WMLK. Varies
widely by propagation/MUF but with 300 kW, there ought to be at least
a JBA carrier if on. IIRC, also absent last night, so off the air?
Note, normally silent on UT Sabbathdays only like July 13.

Other broadcast is 17-22 UT on 9275: by 1705 July 12, no signal into
Maine SDR, while neighbor 9265 WINB is good with national anthem -- is
it the only US SW station to play The SSB at s/on/off? For shame.
Still no 9275 by 1800 into other remotes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9670, July 13 at 0225, ``Yellow Rose of Texas``
Dixieland version, then vocal C&W. It`s the Texas Radio SW test via
Channel 292. Good S7/S9+5 into NH SDR I had up for WBCQ earlier. Not
many tunes one can enjoy listening to, over and over for an hour
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9700, July 11 at 0643, RNZP VG S9+20/25 here, and not
on 13690. Switch from 13690 to 9700 now sked at 0558/0559, but have
been known to overlap (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. July 11 before 0300 UT, search on caradio for Es DX
instead finds tropo boost from OKC of lowpower signals normally
inaudible:

96.5, July 11 at 0258, ``Los éxitos de ayer están sólo aquí``, and
similar non-IDs in next few minutes. So K243BJ, HD# of KRXO 107.7.
[WORLD OF RADIO 2251]

94.1, July 11 at 0300, Bott Radio promos; $ tereo icon flashes on and
off but probably from CCI. K231BH of KQCV 95.1 - WTFDA DB shows base
station also on 94.1, wrong. 95.1 hardly needs a LP relay so close.

92.9, July 11 at 0304, ``The Edge``, i.e. K225BN, of KOMA-HD2 on 92.5.
Maybe slogan alludes to being at the edge of 92.5 bigsig.

97.3, July 11 at 0306, plug Santa Fe Family Life Center, then OKC RCC
references. Is 1.0 kW KKNG-FM Blanchard. Beware, ``Santa Fe`` mentions
do not necessarily lead to NM. Also Houston, and RCC stuff anywhere
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, July 11 at 0641, extended WRMI back to Spanish
tonight, no doubt almost usual RFI relay, S9+10/20, obscuring 9960
Vanuatu. 9955 still on air but JBA by 1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 9960, July 11 at 0642, RV S6/S7 including noise level,
tooo close to 9955 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2251)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1650.41, July 11 at 0713, het/carrier/spur again vs 1650
