Hauser
** ANTARCTICA [non]. Re my pointing out QRM to LRA36 twice a week
before 1500: ``UZBEKISTAN, 15474.773 kHz measured on Saturday May 25
at 1327 UT, Nippon no Kaze program in Korean language, S=9+25/+30dB
powerful strong on Perseus SDR worldwide net - remotedly at Doha Qatar
Middle East Arabia installation. Via CRRT RRTM Telecom Tashkent
Uzbekistan Shortwave Transmitting bcast center. c/o RRTM, Amir Timur
str. 109 A Tashkent, 100202 Uzbekistan, Central Asia. [selected SDR
options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews
May 25)`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Another tornado threat Saturday evening May 25 into UT
May 26 found the major OKC TV stations again blowing away
regular/network programming for wall-to-wall coverage. If not
tornadoes, large hail and flash flooding. Again most of it except some
rain missed Enid. Once again the only FM station relaying TV wx
coverage from KFOR was the gospel huxter on 89.7, but only briefly and
back to praise music while we were still being alert. Enid`s 95.7 &
107.1 were finally back on air circa 2330 UT - but with regular not
storm programming. KFOR was first to resume NBC at 0108 UT, but had to
break in again by 0118 with storms approaching Stillwater area. Once
all the storming move on east of here, we may relax (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, May 26 at 1813 into UTwente, horrible buzzroar
continues. Something`s wrecked at wRiyadh (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [and non]. Reply to my comment about VOA carrying African
basketball in Portuguese: ``A couple of comments -- yes, indeed, R
Martí has broadcast some complete major league baseball games. I have
found them and much of RM content to be useful in resurrecting the
brain cells of my high school Spanish.

Nonetheless, your sentiment about the waste of resources, I feel, also
applies to the BBCWS. Four hours spent across Saturday/Sunday for
Sportsworld and play by play lifted from BBC 5 Live across four
frequencies. Four hours/frequencies that could have been spent
providing 1 hour a day to the Americas with something like Newsday.
Tony Pavick, Hope BC`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. Re CODAR ID on 4755: if it were WRPV785 as researched last
year, it`s licensed to UC Davis but from 5 sites in three counties
starting at 4463 kHz: Sonoma: Bodega Bay; Mendocino: Fort Bragg, Point
Arena; Humboldt: Trinidad, Samoa. As in
http://www.interceptradio.com/fcc.php
where you may enter any FCC callsign including CODAR to find out about
it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2244 monitoring: ``Unexpectedly
hearing WOR on WTWW on 9475 kHz, 2310 UTC Saturday, May 25.
Transmitter frequency seems to be off by approx. minus 20 Hz. SINPO
45333 — though the noise is mostly local, I think. 73 Ricky Leong,
Calgary, Alberta, Canada``

``Thanks for the tip, Ricky. Didn't know that WOR was on WTWW.
Reception for me is 45444, so noise may be local for you. Good to be
able to listen locally rather than SDR. Tony Pavick, Hope BC``

So I enquire whether 2300 UT Saturdays be a reliable new time; and any
other WTWW times I am unaware of?

Confirmed UT Sunday May 26 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, good into Maryland
SDR in quick check as I am about to close down deferring to
lightning.

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 26 at 0339 about 3 minutes into so
started circa 0336 the 0315v on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, almost unreadable
into nearby MO SDR due to high storm noise level totalling S9+10/15.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Uncle Bill Tilford replies to my comments about WBCQ R.
Angela vanishing from 5130.3v: ``The WBCQ website has become useless
generally including incorrectly listing me as staff (I'm not doing
anything at all with the station these days) and a variety of other
errors in their program guide. In fairness, flawed websites appear to
be an almost endemic problem in the shortwave world (even VOA's has
wormholes where actual radio is concerned), almost as if there is a
fear that having one that is usable for program/frequency guides might
be a slippery slope to people wanting to listen on line instead.

As to what Glenn calls A*ATT, if it received the same level of
correspondence as the previous, more cosmopolitan incarnation of Radio
Angela, death by asphyxiation would have been just a matter of time.
But we'll see if it comes up for air again before November. There too,
it needs to be mentioned in fairness that WBCQ also airs John P.
Lightning's Radio New York International gratis twice a month, and
that show makes MSNBC seem like a fan of the former president in
question by comparison.`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, May 26 at 0622, S9+45/50 open carrier: has to be WTWW
left on long beyond nominal 0430*; confirmed by JBA spur carriers but
closer to plus/minus 12.8 kHz than usual 12.9, i.e. 5072.2 & 5097.8
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA.``Hi Glenn - Here on the California coast, I also noted
the absence of 4940 kHz, but did not record exactly from when it went
silent. Ron Howard``

No signal at 0223 UT May 26 into Bonaire SDR -- but from UK: ``Glenn -
I noted 4940 kHz with a strong clear signal at 0328 UTC 25 May using
the Kiwi SDR receiver on Bonaire. Long religious monologue by a lady
in Spanish. Assumed this was Estación 4940, though no ID copied. 73,
Alan Pennington`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1947 UT May 26

Hauser
** OKLAHOMA. 95.7, May 25 at 1859 UT on caradio DX bandscan I notice
that local KXLS Lahoma is OFF. Audiblizes something else JBA
mentioning Bott network. There is one of 140 watts way off in KS, but
this must be K239BT, 250-watt translator of KQCV 800, in The Village,
NW OKC suburb where I dwelt from age 9 to 16.

107.1, May 25 at 1905, I find one other local signal missing, KNID
``North Enid``. Despite different CoLs, neither plain old Enid, these
are co-owned by Chisholm Trail Broadcasting and from same site west of
Enid. Both are still silent at 2050 & 2230 UT chex. What`s wrong? Not
going to be available for tornado warnings?

90.5, May 25 at 1859-1902, dead air in mono, presumed near-local KGVV
Goltry. Still dead at 2100 recheck; need to notice whether normally in
$ tereo. No loss: another gospel huxter. Back on later, in $ tereo.
Might have been overriden by local unused part 15 RF feeder? See also
USA for more OKies mixed in DX opening (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785+, May 25 at 2200, VOT on, JBA direct, VG into
UTwente. No time to listen further, rather `Dinner and a Movie` on
KUCO 90.1, and being aware of tornado threats (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4755, May 25 at 0643 as I start a 60m bandscan, CODAR pauses
for Morse code ID twice, too fast for me to copy, but has been copied
and explored before. This reconfirms ``schedule`` for ID breaks,
presumably thrice hourly also at :03 and :23, and audible over the
total wide frequency range (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2244 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday May 25 from a few sex before 0400 on WTWW 5085, VG direct as
always. This time I explore reception into many SDRs in many
direxions, since the lobe pattern of this is unknown:

UTwente Holland: JBA S5
W1NT New Hampshire: good, S9/+10
VE6JY Alberta: S9+20/35
KFS California SE antenna: S9+35/45
Querétaro, México: S9+10/20
Melbourne FL: S9+5/20
Hawaii: S3/S5 about an hour before sunset
Bonaire: S9/+10
Middle Tennessee: S9+15/35 groundwave
near Memphis TN: S9+30/35 so not in skip zone

Also confirmed Saturday May 25 at 1454 the 1430 on SW Gold/Radio,
Germany, 6160.001, S9 into UTwente, no QRM. Missed checking the 1730
on 6160, 3975.

Also confirmed Saturday May 25 at 1619 on WRN North America 1600
webcast. Chris Campbell also hearing it via WRN Europe webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday May 25 from 1951 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, VG
into nearby SDR, following `This Week In Amateur Radio` = TWIAR, not
TIAWR as I erred last week: no, not the defunct CR outlet; also from
1930 on WRMI webcast only and WRN North America. Next:

0000 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?];
0230vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0500];

** U S A. 4840, May 25 at 0645, WWCR-3 with VORW, S9+40/45. As
scheduled at 0600-0700 Saturdays. Nice to hear something besides
gospel huxters here. John`s other times on WWCR: UT Monday 0400 on
4840; Sat 2200 on WWCR-1, 6115 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. DXMAP shows Es FM DX between OK and California, May 25 at
1520 UT, so out to the car to check. I never hear any such, but rather
tropo enhanced as far as Kansas City, almost 300 miles, despite APRS
map showing no connexion into Kansas, just some intra-OK blobs not
quite reaching Enid. These tropos may well be obscuring some
E-skippers. Anyway bandscanning I also note some OKies. Approx.
city-to-city distances, not site-to-site, on distancefromto.net

92.1, at 1522, strong signal turns out to be only KFXI with singing
ID, and it`s in MONO even during C&W music at 1547. 100/100 kW from
Marlow OK, usually fringely audible. WTFDA does not mark it MONO! 194
km/121 stmi

94.9, at 1524 $ tereo rock, VG signal. This is one of my best ``open
for DX`` frequencies. Soon ID as ``94-9 KCMO``, ``another 50-minute
music marathon``. That`s 100/100 kW CoL Shawnee KS, a KC suburb. And
no -FM suffix despite the AM 710 station plus 103.7 translator. Could
be confusing. So strong it ought to show RDS icon at least, but
nonesuch at 1553 on DX-398 check, holding it out the window. 404/251

99.5, at 1529, $ tereo, ``Big Country 99.5``, i.e. KXBL, 100/100 kW,
Henryetta OK, rimshotting Tulsa market, our normal fringer. However
searching the FMDB on that slogan, we see it also applies to K258GZ,
250-watt translator of KALV 1430 Alva OK - no doubt separately
programmed from KXBL. And there is a third one in WV, WBYG. 201/125

92.9, at 1532, ``The River``, i.e. KRQV, 100/100 kW Tulsa; formerly
KBEZ FM The Drive. Hmm, there is a river drive along the Arkansas.
171/106

97.5, at 1537, several Manhattan KS ads, weather, Eagle Radio. Trouble
is, among the 13 stations licensed there, none on 97.5! BTW, there are
zero licensed to Manhattan NY, but two in MT. Eagle in slogan only
hits a Vermont 97.5! This must really be KJCK, 100/100 kW in Junxion
City KS, no Eagle in DB, rather ``Power Hits 97.5``. 307/191

97.3, at 1539, gospel rock; 1557 ``K-Love``. There are very low power
ones in CO, IN, TX and WI, but this must be the full-power 55/55 kW,
and closest, KLRX, Lee`s Summit MO, near Kansas City. 429/266

100.3, at 1542, Kansas Lottery ad, fadeout. Considering PTA above,
100/100 kW, KDVV Topeka; however there is a much closer one, KNZS
14.5/14.5 kW, Arlington, a tiny town not even in my regular Rand
McNally, but in the Large Scale one just WNW of Wichita. 354/220 or
169/105

104.9, at 1543, South Asian language, laughter, f/out. Suspect tropo
extends as far as the TX Metroplex. None such in the DB`s Language
field, in MO, KS, OK, or TX, but for: ``Ethnic`` FUNASIA, KZMP-FM,,
35/35 kW, Pilot Point TX, as heard before. Overcoming OKC station.
344/214

93.7, at 1549, ``Hot 93.7``, rock. Merely KSPI-FM Stillwater OK, 16/16
kW semilocal. Two others are in CT and FL. 80/50

94.1, at 1556, Kansas City-area ads for Memorial Day. Therefore, KFKF,
100/100 kW, Kansas City KS. But which state is it from, really?
Longitude of site is 94-30-24. But searching finds the long. of
Stateline Road is 94°36′26.7″W. Therefore, it is in MISSOURI! 418/260

94.5, at 1552, ad for 573 area code; MA Bank in Macon. 573 is roughly
the eastern third of Missouri, almost border to border IA-AR, except
for greater St Louis. Not Georgia. Macon is in NE MO, midway between
Chillicothe and Hannibal; and midway between Kirksville and Moberly.
Guess what: NO station licensed to Macon; must be KRXL 90/90 kW
Kirxvil. 626/389

96.7, at 1559, ``96-7 & 1310 Sports Radio, The Ticket``, obviously
another Metroplexan heard before, KTCK-FM, 90/90 kW, Flower Mound TX;
on 1310 successor to onetime great classical WRR owned by City of
Dallas. 381/236 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 4940, May 25 at 0647, no signal from Estación 4940, nor
for a few weeks at random late-night chex. It used to be on late but
not always, but I would seldom bother to log it. Need to check if
still there earlier evenings. I don`t see any reports of it in May,
since April 24. Or COLOMBIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2317 UT May 25

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA [non]. 15474.8 approx., Fri May 24 at 1454, JBA carrier
direct, and nothing from LRA36 on 15475.98 RCUSB. Surely Furosato no
Kaze, from Japan roundabout via UZBEKISTAN, Tashkent
characteristically skewed frequency, for Korea North. RNASG is
scheduled Fri at 12-15 and Tue at 13-15, as I have warned about a
collision. No time now, too late to check if there be blockage into
Europe or South America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. Just in via the WOR iog from Tim Gaynor, May 25 at 0119
UT: ``Unique Radio AU & Website --- Hi Glenn and columnists,
Unfortunately, the Unique Radio AU site will be going offline (After
Wednesday of next week) due to Square taking over Weebly and
increasing costs to the legacy websites and turning them into business
websites. The increases would be from $ 36.00 AUD a month (I'm
presently paying) to over $ 100 AUD a month, which is way too much.

As you know, Unique Radio AU site hasn't really been all there for a
while now but the increased costs has now essentially made my mind up
for good. Jen's 'Calling all Radio Nutz', webcasts will continue and
She will post details here with any changes (If any).

I do have plans for a new service for a few hours a night, still using
5035 and 3210 kHz, USB, later in the night and hopefully a new online
website under a different moniker.

The Shortwave will only be talk based with no music and offered for
lease to selected broadcasters or programme producers. I would still
like to feature 'World of Radio' and 'The International Radio Report'.
I'll let you know when the new entity will be back, with thanks
always, Timothy Gaynor, 5035 kHz & 3210 kHz, Domestic Radio Sender,
Moree N.S.W., Australia`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. Re: 60 Minutes - Ana Montés YouTube link -- Hey
Glenn, I heard you mention the story and am forwarding a link to the
terrestrial broadcast that aired here last Sunday night. It never
mentions "number stations" or even "shortwave" by name but did call it
a "high frequency" broadcast. I wonder why they presented it this way?
If they were trying to break down the "Cuban tradecraft" and how it is
not high tech, then why not tell yourself audience that her messages
came by shortwave radio, aka in layman's terms?

https://youtu.be/7tGGdJwbiEU?si=NWgbo1Pvlpqcsfr2
Ambassador, Pentagon official among Americans who spied for Cuba | 60
Minutes --- Best regards, Chris Campbell``

Well they did show a page of 5-digit numbers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 11665, May 24 at 1503, JBA carrier direct. Thought
it might be the only SW left from Malaysia, Wai FM et al., but per
EiBi 2230-1405; now amid 1500-1600 it`s CRI Pashto via Kashgar/Kashi,
land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 15690.045 approx., May 24 at 1456 JBA talk off-frequency
direct. EiBi shows R. Farda for Iran, via Biblis site at 0530-1630;
also via Thailand, no doubt different exact frequency, at 0230-0530
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935 USB, May 25 at 0118, music JBA in HSNL adding
up to S7/S9. Many logs here as Radio Free Whatever:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,129770.0.html
including from station itself:
Got Noise? No problem! listen here instead!
https://radiofreewhatever.mixlr.com/events/3439252
Indeed there it is when I bring it up at 0157, for most of an hour
untill ``This live event has ended`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, UT Sat May 25 at 0119, JBA music in HSNL
adding up to S8/S9. Surely Ballsmacker Radio on regular sked; yes:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,129772.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, May 24 at 1818 into UTwente, S9+5 of horrible
noise but somewhat different than before: rapid clickery and hum
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri May 24 at 2200, token English from SNR,
sufficient S9/+10 direct but not as strong as can be, much stronger
than 15520 for ME. 15390 for Africa, JBA carrier with Doppler flutter.
Too much distraxion, could not catch name of interviewee at 2209, but
discussing how Russia and China have not become democratic instead of
authoritarian as hoped since 1989. And Spain is the ``center of the
climate crisis``. Will have to wait till they get around to posting
the ``25/05`` podcast at:
https://www.rtve.es/play/audios/english-language-broadcast/
or the repeat at 0200 UT Sat on webcast only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, May 24 at 2158 VOT not off the air today, audible
direct with IS and ID, S9/+10 vs too much local noise. Tuning Maryland
SDR, S9+5/20 at 2230, `Turkish Folk Tales` ending, music. 2237 `That`s
Why` by Ms Badax, also modulation distortion so no idea of topic. 2253
s/off again no mention of SW, only a snippet of IS before chopoff, no
finesse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6913 USB, UT Sat May 25 at 0034, apparent MARS net led by
AAR#NF, mentioned training, VP vs HSNL and contacts even weaker.
Nothing on this frequency in Klingenfuß 2022. This was an AF Day
crossband contact frequency I last logged May 12, 2019 at 0030 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. Not a log, yet, but: VOA plans special coverage in
Portuguese of BAL = Basketball Africa League on Saturday May 25 via
SAO TOME and BOTSWANA, which may temporarily replace other broadcasts,
at 1200-1500 UT on São Tomé 17675, and on Botswana 15580.

Also on Monday May 27, 1430-1700 & 1830-2030 on SAO 17655; 1430-2030
on BOT 15580, instead of English. Per EiBi, Portuguese is already on
17655 at 1700-1800 via Vatican, and 1800-1830 via SAO.

And on this date only, the Sudan service in English at 1630-1700 on
11910 will be via Lampertheim, Germany, instead of Botswana.

https://bal.nba.com/news/full-2024-bal-finals-schedule-confirmed

The playoffs already started May 24 in Kigali, Rwanda. May 25 involves
an Angolan team which is why VOA is Portuguesing this; May 27 might or
might not depending on a Saturday win. The Final will be Sat June 1
from 14 UT, possibly requiring more special coverage. There are also
games on next Wednesday and Friday.

So is this the Voice of AFRICA, or Voice of AMERICA? Why doesn`t VOA
broadcast play-by-play of US sporting events? Godforbid our resources
could be further wasted with silly ballgames. I believe however that
R. Martí does broadcast some complete béisbol games of interest to
dentroCubans. Quite a few escapees get jobs with MLB -- take that!
(Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2244 monitoring: confirmed Friday
May 24 at 2048 the 2030 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.995 kHz, not 918
or 207, steady S9+8 into UTwente across Europe. But 2053 sudden fade
to S7 audiblizing ACI, power cut?

Also confirmed first SWBC, Friday May 24 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, JBA
S7/S9 direct and undermodulated, much weaker than 9395 & 9455 as to be
expected due to azimuths. Bonaire should get 9955 better but at 2221
inaudible in noise level; but Maryland SDR has it good at S8/S9.

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` check of WBCQs, May 24 circa 2335 into NH SDR:
3265+ and 5130+ OFF! 6160 -70 Hz = 6159.930 TOM but not BS, S7/S9.
7490 -67 Hz = 7489.933 FKB S9+5/10. 9330.00 WLCR Portuguese S7/S9. At
0000 UT May 25, 7490- announces this AAAWWW originally aired March 8,
2024 --- yet another rerun! Never mind. I already reported on that one
at the time

Yes, 5130+ ``Radio Angela`` with ``Radio *rump International`` or as
we call it, `A*ATT` = All *rump all the time, is still missing
whenever checked at random day or night since May 14; last heard
weakened on May 11. Has anyone heard AW explain what happened, on air,
in a Twit or any way? Could it be that they have finally recovered
from delusions, or transmitter broke? Latest info on R. Angela webpage
is from a year ago! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA. 17600, May 23 at 1835, JBA carrier direct from Ifrikiya
FM, which might float English now. By 1850 UTwente check, much better
in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 15034 USB, May 23 at 1840, Trenton Military with
No-Report-Received terminal forecasts from Shannon, Prestwick,
Keflavik, Lajes; but then reports were received as of 1800 from
several Canadian aviation weathers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. RF 15, May 23 circa 1700 & 1800 UT, KTBO ``14`` OKC is
breaking up as if DX QRMed, very unusual. APRS map shows large tropo
blob between Enid and Pampa TX, so suspect it`s Fox Amarillo, KCIT
with 925 kW ERP ND. AMA is about 90 degrees off the side from my
rooftop UHF antenna permaimed toward OKC, and rehooked the one loose
guywire yesterday. No sign of any DX on `open` channels; only other
anomaly is RF 29 KTUZ ``Shawnee`` = OKC market, a bit weaker than
usual on the meter but not breaking up. No full-powers on 29 in
Amarillo area but lots of others across TX. Second possibility on RF
15 is KJTL, Fox Wichita Falls, 1000 kW direxional NNE toward here
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2243 monitoring: confirmed UT

including high storm noise level; but at 0158, S8/9+5 clear into
Bonaire SDR where it`s aimed.
