Hauser
** BRAZIL. 28409 USB, April 8 at 2128, PT9SS calling CQ DX, only S3
about equal to noise level and one of only two or three signals
audible on 10m TE. QRZ.com with some photos:

PT9SS Brazil flag Brazil
Sandro Rodrigues Pereira (SAN)
Viela José Daniel, 1971
Jardim Cangalha cep 79604-214 Tres Lagoas, MS
Brazil

His fonetix are ``papa tango nine sugar sugar`` --- look, the proper S
going with those P and T is sierra! So many hams mix up their fonetix
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1430 kHz, April 8 at 2105 UT on caradio in Enid I am
finally checking out KALV, in the occasional spots where the powerline
and stoplight noise abates a bit. Two weak signals but the dominant is
country music, not sports or talk, making a SAH of about 5 Hz. By 2127
I`m on home rig with similar reception, slightly better on N/S
internal shortwire: ``Hometown radio station Stereo 1430, KALV; tell a
friend``. No mention of FM; they had a translator on 99.5.

FCC info in NRC DX News as of April 4 reported:

``KALV OK Alva – Granted STA, U1 60/60 (maybe using D1 60), wildfire
damage.``

Its licensed parameters are U4 500 500 psra 500 per NRC AM Log.

Among all the wildfires around OK, I missed hearing about KALV when it
happened, but searching on wildfire Alva leads right to several
versions of March 21-22, including:
https://www.koco.com/article/oklahoma-wildfire-alva-destroys-radio-station/39495071

Own website does not load properly
https://kalvradio.com/?page_id=72

But coverage maps are also at
https://radio-locator.com/info/KALV-AM

Day pattern is slightly pulled in from the east, presumably to protect
sportstalk KTBZ Tulsa but which is more like ESE, and Enid is more
like SE --- but KALV has never had much of a signal in Enid. Distance
is only 70 km = 43 statute miles.

Night pattern quite different, very pulled in from the NE, presumably
to protect St Louis, the 50/5 kW station whose license was canceled
two years ago and which I think is no longer on the air, most of the
KALV night signal broadly from NW to SW to SE.

So the question is, are KALV still running only 60 watts STA? That
much non-direxional might be better here than the old higher-power
direxional facility. What kind of antenna now? Stations under duress
sometimes even use longwires to transmit. Or maybe the towers survived
unlike the transmitter (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, Sat April 9 at 0500.6-0507.6, UR1 via WRMI
with now reliable English segment `Ukraine: Security Issues` leading
of course with the RuSSian airstrike on the train platform killing
many; VG S9+15 into Maryland remote (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 15580, April 8 at 2133, S3-S8 of VOA presumably `Music
Time in Africa` scheduled Fridays at 2105 tho the DJockesse has been
unaware of this airing; Via BOTSWANA, 100 kW at 350 degrees. And not
perceptibly off-frequency. The best we can do in A-seasons, lacking GB
11720 in B-seasons this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2133 monitoring: confirmed just in
time at 0158 UT Sat April 9 the 0130 on WRMI 9395, S5/S6 into UTwente
which I happen to have running after Ukraine check at 0000 on 1386.

Also confirmed UT Sat April 9 at 0400 on R Angela via WBCQ 4790, S9+15
into Maryland SDR.

Once again there are uteblaaps QRMing, and I time them occurring on a
regular schedule other than exactly 4:00 minutes apart as last time.
Now there are two different cycles each exactly 3:00 minutes apart:
one at top of minutes 0415, 0418, 0424, 0427; and another at about :45
seconds past these minutes: 0416, 0419, 0425, 0428. (Assume I missed
the ones at 0421, 0422+.) I leave the same remote running after WBCQ
off at 0430* --- and no more blaaps! I had always assumed this was
some kind of external QRM, but now I am forced to wonder if they were
also coming out of a defective 4790 WBCQ transmitter? OR, if external,
they were not coincidental, accidental, but deliberately to annoy ---
hardly jam --- WBCQ? I have not been paying much attn to the SDR
waterfalls, but I do spot some rectangles a few kHz above and below
4790 line which could represent the blaaps. But there is no time
calibration on vertical scale of the H2Ofalls. Curious. Next:

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat April 9 at 0000, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW`.
Gives date right at the start! So we know it`s new, altho with same
old far-right rants. Angela`s mike is on already this week. Angela has
been picking up tix out horseback-riding, so Allan grooms her body?
Plugs great Trump rallies every Saturday: Trump has got to come back
``to fix everything`` --- they axually believe that. Both require
reading glasses, where are they? Allan is a Man of Science: believes
in vax, not in max. Two print mags he has subscribed since highschool
are Star & Telescope, and Scientific American. Fast fwd:

By 0030 he`s amid James Careless` Radio World article about BBC at 90.
Approves of Elon Musk who has bought controlling interest in Twitter,
so will promote Free Speech. ? I thought it was less than controlling
interest? 0038 Allan remarx that the Russians are jamming Ukrainian
broadcasts. Really? Capture and/or destroy transmitters like 549 kHz,
but jamming?? Uncle Bill`s comments about radio being a medium which
bonds with listeners, unlike internet. 0048 datestamp as 8th of April
YOOLF 2022, presumably trimulcasting u.o.s. Next month will be doing a
lot of transmitter work, both SuperStition and Classic; also needs to
get 2 MW generator hooked up. 0056 decrying perceived ``war on
gender`` -- there are only two and you are stuck with however you were
born. 0100 prayer; 0101 JIP Hal Turner late as always (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

Hauser
** COLOMBIA. The ``it`` in my last report was of course:
La Voz de tu Conciencia = The Voice of Thy Conscience:

``6010, April 7 at 0700, JBA signal in Spanish? Yes, later April 7 at
2230, Rafael Rodríguez reported it reactivated after a long time with
preaching by Stendal, NA at 2300; and RR is the 100% e-QSL manager to
rafaelcoldx@yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2133)``

6010, April 8 at 0705, heard LVC again, better S8/S9 with song in
Spanish. No, nothing on 5910, its former sibling station, Alcaraván
Radio. Might that revive too from Puerto Lleras? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 9778-9833, April 8 at 0613, approx. range of bleed from
wall-of-noise jamming against nothing on 9805, i.e. plus/minus 27/28
kHz, overkill. Always incompetent and unconcerned about collateral
damage, the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [and non]. 6030, April 8 at 1559.5, Artists for Peace
special event, live benefit concert from Königswusterhausen, via
AUSTRIA on this frequency, VG S9+35/40 into UTwente, much better than
// 9580 via Nauen. Opening with orchestra and chorus but not the
now-familiar Ukrainian national anthem. Huge variety of music and
performers, instruments, with lots of commentary mostly in German, but
occasional Ukrainian. One English heard at 1656 about power of music,
with frequencies. 1646 accordion. 1747 a Russian pianist with a
flutist. Publicity said there would be 31 performers from seven
nations. Could hardly fit all those into only two hours scheduled,
1600-1800. Both continue past 1800, but those tuned to 9580 find it
soon off. 6030 keeps on going as I listen via UTwente. 1832 YL in
Ukrainian; 1840 finally wrapping up in German, 1842 Ukrainian, 1842.7*
uncovering something else weakly on 6030. See
https://www.kulturwerk.info/Classic-meets-Jazz-694265.html
https://museum.funkerberg.de/benefizkonzert/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420, Fri Apr 8 at 1659, S9+45 unGreek music with
heavy reverb, very exotic so presumably China already? No, must have
been ERT since this chops off at 1700 uncovering what is really a
China minority service on 9420.002, S9+30/40 into UTwente (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. (5910), we`ve lost track of the weekly Friday-only
clandestine at 1730-1800v of Channel 1 TV, which had been regular in
B21; but in A22, Romania has overtaken that slot, in Serbian. Did Ch 1
move to another frequency and/or time due to DST in Iran? Lots of luck
finding anything about radio, let alone SW, even if converted to
English, at https://ch1.cc/

I`m far too busy at 1730 April 8 to go on a random hunt for it by
tuning, but I do check the latest HFCC for any likely-looking
replacement from TAChkent site at 1730 on day 6: No fits. Then I
search on all the broadcasts starting at 1730 from all sites: no fits
either. So is the SW relay of this still going anywhere? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY. 918 kHz, Fri April 8 at 1915, Spanish PSA from OMS = WHO,
1916 `Counterspin` on IRRS via AM Italia, not only on MW 1323 kHz
Villa Estense, but reactivated on 918, which is much better with no
QRM into nearby Noale SDR, since Madrid 918 has gone dark. See also
USA [and non] WOR monitoring. Counterspin is chopped off only halfway
thru at 1930 for IRRS Milan ID and Feature Story News. Airing
fragments of programs is the most annoying thing about IRRS even when
not done to WOR.

1935 joins VOA News rather than `Flashpoint Ukraine` which follows VOA
news at 1930 on WRMI 15770. 1940, 918 into music; 1945 American PSA
for brushing teeth. 1946 starts `Shortwave Report` with Dan Roberts;
will it be halved as well? He starts with Sputnik Radio, then to be
NHK Radio Japan, Radio Habana Cuba --- seems Dan is still stuck on the
same old stations. Shortwave! indeed, Sputnik is not on SW, but
recorded from web probably like the others. Dan says he has now
completed 25 years of the `SW` Report. Starts NHK segment but has QRM
from Turkey`s `Feeling Supreme` theme! So maybe really from SW, or did
IRRS do that? 1958 anyway SWR chopped off by IRRS for more VOA News!
across hourtop; 2003 Feature Story News again. 2007 songs. Then
another talk program about pavilions, from UN? 2020 Spanish PSA about
COVID19/UNESCO/OMS, more songs until 2030 ID with PO Box address
otherwise discouraged, and WOR 2133.

Alfredo Cotroneo replies: ``Glen[n], There are and will be occasional,
unscheduled, tests on 918, but we are more interested in propagation
outside Italy into Central and Northern Europe, including the war
zones. 1323 is doing better than 918 for long time propagation. Good
news that the Spanish station in not interfering now on 918, but they
may come back, who knows? Alfredo `` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15785, Fri April 8 at 1508 in routine bandscan, I
discover anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH on new frequency, the
signature vocalizations of Josiah needing no explicit ID. No problem
from the 1 kW DRM in Germany allegedly 24h on 15780-15790 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. 15529.9, April 8 at 1509, JBA carrier off-frequency, not
taking time to measure it more precisely. HFCC at 1500-1600 has AWR in
Kxf language via Trincomalee. Kxf?? Aoki abbreviates it Kar. EiBi KA
which means Karen, as in the Myanmar minority; not scheduled as such
in WRTH 2022 for B-21 season (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2133 monitoring: 5985 WRMI-2 still
off the air at 0330 April 8, since NHK Spanish at 0400 quit after
March 31. I did not check after 0400 but the WRMI skedgrid now shows
R. Eslovaquia = Spanish from System B on WRMI-2 at 0400-0430. Yet the
System B program grid below, mainly about 9955 does not, only Prague
on 9955. The System D program schedule for the 0330-0400 segment on
``5985`` still appears with WOR and various other programs during the
week. Contradixion after contradixion.

Missed checking Friday April 8 at 1430 on WRMI 9955; anyone hear WOR?

Confirmed Friday April 8 at 1815 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, but
even at nearby Noale SDR, under QRM from Romania in German. I also
check 918 kHz, and surprise2, it`s also on the air with WOR, and much
better with no QRM as R. Inter, Madrid has gone silent again. AFAIK
there has been no publicity from IRRS about 918 still in use. I had
not even sought it for several weeks, assuming it was gone once 1323
had replaced it. But without QRMadrid, 918 would be better to use than
1323. Also checked LW 207 kHz, with some music not // but presumably
not Iceland. See also ITALY!

Of course, WOR also on 7290 via Bulgaria from 1815 Friday VG into
UTwente, and also JBA on 14580 second harmonic vs RTTY on plus side.

Also confirmed Friday April 8 at 2030 UT on AM Italia, equally VG
S9+5/10 at Noale on both 918 & 1323. Next:

PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9950 & 9960, April 8 at 0616, JBA carriers, parasitic spurs
out of 9955 WRMI which is S9+20. Difficult to distinguish any audio on
9950 & 9960 with huge splash out of 9955 itself. And some poor 2-way
USB is trying to communicate about 9960.2. But there`s more:

9965, April 8 at 0618, a further spur with TOMBS audio JBA // 9955.
And a matching JBA carrier on 9945. Something`s odd at Okeechobee
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11620, April 8 at 1502, another English sermon about
``doing good`` from Voice of Martyrs, Korea, S7/S9 direct. Pastor Tim,
who is a WOR iog member, acknowledges as a test for Maldives, but site
is confidential. How about Reach Beyond Australia, Kununurra?:

PRO:
RBA has not replied to my inquiry.
They have 3 x 100 kW transmitters
Only one is on their public schedule after 1400

https://www.reachbeyond.org.au/wp-content/uploads/A22-Listener-Edition.pdf
Since this is a ``listener edition``, that implies there is another
internal edition with secret broadcasts not to be acknowledged
RBA already carries VOMK in Korean at another time
RBA has many broadcasts for S Asia before 1400 with suitable antennas
It`s a clear shot across the Indian Ocean, ideal distance
Puts a good signal into North America otherwise tho never beamed
thisaway

CON:
Checked the one RBA at 1520 April 8, to Myanmar on 11825, only JBA
carrier
Why would one VOMK broadcast on RBA be public and another secret?
RBA has not replied to my direct inquiry
There are still plenty of other possible sites. Everyone invited to
investigate with TDOA.

Why would this Korea-based ministry go after Maldivians? Sunni Islam
is the only allowed religion as explained in great detail here:

https://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/indian-ocean/mv-religion.htm
The partner station may be unwilling to risk offending their own
Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9955, April 7 at 0625, Brother Scare on WRMI vs
Cuban pulse jamming, tsk2, long after there is ever any Spanish

and 5850 S9+20/25 both into Missouri SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Just in early UT April 8, a reply to my inquiry about
the 11620 station, just too late to include on WOR 2133!:

``Hi Glenn, Thanks for your email and thank you for all the work you
do on behalf of short-wave radio.

Yes - this is a new broadcast that is intended for the Maldives. It is
currently in English, but we hope to have more and more content in
Dhivehi shortly.

Due to our agreement with our radio broadcast partner, we are unable
to share the location of the transmission.

Additionally, we will be starting a Chinese language short-wave
station on May 1st. These are of course in addition to our ongoing
Korean language broadcasts that are intended for North Korea. We are
convinced of the need and value of short-wave broadcasts in light of
oppressive regimes around the world.

Thanks, Tim [Dillmuth, Pastor], VOM Korea``

Meanwhile, I logged it again April 7 at *1459, joining in progress the
TV soundtrack with the same preacher as before, fair-poor into UTwente
and some other remotes; at 1521 direct, S8/S9+10; 1526 weakening with
deep fading; 1528 `Blessed Assurance` theme; 1529:20 other music and
maldives@vomkorea.com contact address quite clear this time and off
before 1530*. So it`s up to us to figure out whence (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, April 6 at 1425, no signal this
Wednesday from LRA36 into four Brazilian remotes checked. Some editors
will throw this out as an insignificant non-log: I maintain its
absences are at least as significant as its appearances, and should be
documented; as with other irregulars (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9805, April 6 at 0621, wall-of-noise jamming
against nothing in response to R. Martí reactivated here for A-22 but
only at 10-13! Now also various jam levels against nothings on 7435,
7375, 7355, 7335, 6030 WON; 5980 vs the WWCR leapfrog mixing product
of WWCRs 5890 TOMBS over 5935 DGS/PMS another 45 kHz beyond,
fundamentals so strong that the ghostly voice of BS can be heard on
5980 mixed with jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, April 6 at 0635, the only RHC frequency left, S9+10/20
of undermodulated English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT [and non]. 9439.995, April 6 at 2204, R. Cairo, S9+25/30 into
UTwente, English news mostly readable if you concentrate against the
distortion and humwhine. Yet I decline.

Ex-9900 is occupied by CNR1 echo jamming against another Chinese
signal, i.e. RTI, April 6 at 2205, S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [non]. 9420, April 6 at 1656, I tune for VOG to catch it
going off at 1700 like yesterday? Good signal into UTwente, S9+15, but
music at 1658 and announcement are *not* Greek. EPT is already off
uncovering CNR13. No timesignal but mentions ``Radiostantsiyom`` so
Russian-influenced, like Kazakh as some have guessed? 1702 ``Burasi``
as in a Turkic language, ``this is``, like Uyghur as listed. 1703
onward lots of talk.

Alan Roe, Teddington, UK, reports to the WOR iog: ``A later start
today (6 April) for V of Greece - observed crashing-on at 1417 UT
(9420 kHz).`` Christos Rigas, Wood Dale IL, replies: ``Late start was
most likely due to general strike in Greece today. Broadcast employees
were on strike which ended at 1300 UT today. And abruptly off at 1647.
Short shift for the two ERT employees at Avlida today``

Background via Kim Elliott:
```[WOR] Greek City Times on the Voice of Greece Reprieve
Given recent restrictions and interruptions to the internet, the Greek
Defense Ministry thinks the imminent demise of shortwave is a
non-starter ...

or
https://twitter.com/kaedotcom/status/1511702524318957574

``The closure of the analog broadcast of the Voice of Greece has been
delayed, even temporarily. With a decision taken last Wednesday and
signed by ERT CEO George Gabritsos, the public radio and television
announced that at the request of the Ministry of Defense, the Avlida
shortwave broadcast centre will remain active until May 31, when
re-evaluating the conditions for further continuation or not of its
operation.

In an earlier decision, ERT had stated that its broadcast on shortwave
would end yesterday, March 31, and had addressed the Ministries of
Foreign Affairs and Defense “to decide whether they want the
continuation of the shortwave broadcasts, as well as the acquisition
of ownership and the operation of the shortwave operation at their own
risk“.

11645 kHz for Central & South Africa,

Yes, those 3 frequencies part of the story, altho only 9420 is active
for certain; nominal schedule seems M-F 1230-1700 UT only (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed April 6 at 2208, REE token English is VG into
Maryland SDR; misc. cultural/arts news by Amy; 2217 Justin introduces
9-minute acceptance speech of new director-general-elect of the ILO,
who is from Togo, the first African. Justin never spelt his name ---
this is not TV! --- so I had to search for it: Gilbert Houngbo (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.002, April 6 at 2207, VOT news in English is VG into
UTwente, except for lite whine: that`s better than the squeal.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, April 6 at 0501.5-0508.8, UR1 delayed relay
via WRMI, English segment `Ukraine: Security Issues`, starting UU
language hour. If this time be inconvenient for you, Richard Langley
says the previous airing after 0000 UT reaches the UTwente SDR well on
1386 kHz via Radio Baltic Waves, LITHUANIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2132 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 5 at
2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 over jamming into Maryland SDR; at 2245,
S7/S9 into Bonaire where jamming is worse; and S9+10/15 into Missouri
where jamming S/N ratio is somewhat better.

Next WOR 2133 should be ready early UT Friday April 8 for first
broadcasts at 0130 on WRMI 5850 & 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Transoceanic JBA MW carrier search, April 6 at 0642:
711, 846, 882, 1107; likely resp.: Morocco, Kiritimati, Canary
Islands, Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11620, April 6 at *1500, mystery Protestant broadcast in
English on air abruptly and I do not catch any ID. It`s S7/S8 into
Missouri SDR; program theme at O&C is hymn ``Blessed Assurance``.
Gospel huxter starts mentioning wildfires at Colorado Springs as if
current or recent. There may be lots of them, but quick search implies
the last major event was December 22, 2021. Goes on to discuss and
instruct on how to pray and how much -- plenty. From visual
references, this is soundtrack of some TV program.

At UTwente it`s S8/9+10 on 11620.001. At Bandung SDR it`s S8/S9. 1510
I attempt some TDOAs: Brisbane/Perth/Bandung lead to -35.80, +118.20,
which is in the Indian Ocean just off the SW tip of Australia near
Albany WA: no, but I am still suspecting RBA Kununurra in NW WA. At
least I find the signal widely audible: S9+10 into Half Moon Bay, CA;
S9/+10 into Kuwait. At 1525, S Korea/Kuwait/Perth lead to somewhere
deeper into the Indian Ocean.

At 1527 the Blessed Assurance theme again, a couple bits of other
tunes, closing with contact info or ID as VOMKorea, off at 1529.7* in
time for Vatican crash start Arabic at *1530.

Mauno Ritola was also listening: ``I can't catch the beginning of the
email address, either. Attached. 73, Mauno``

I reply: ``On your recording the word before @ sounds like Maldives as
unlikely as that seem, or maybe Mouthpiece?`` Meanwhile I have
inquired of their generic address on website, info@vomkorea.com --

``Dear Voice of Martyrs, For the past three days I have been hearing
your shortwave broadcast in English at 1500-1530 UTC on 11620 kHz.
Could you tell me where this is being transmitted from? Thanks,
Glenn Hauser, Oklahoma`` No reply yet as of 2342 UT April 6 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
