Hauser
** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Feb 16 at 2310, token English from SNR, VG
S9+30/40 into Maryland SDR. Feature is interview about/with flamenco
guitarist (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9610.004, Fri Feb 16 at 2221 I try the 2130+
English broadcast, S9/+15 into UTwente, not the bigsig it gets after
2300 on 5960 since 9610 is aimed away toward S Asia; but with heavy
SAH of 6 or 7 Hz - I estimate that range by counting rapidly
1-2-3-4-5-6-7 over and over as I watch the seconds tick by on my
watch. This must come from CNR8 Mongolian program via Beijing site,
nothing else now scheduled. S/off of English is underway, seems like
long version with all-wrong times, but hard to copy. 2226 IS is still
running now with IDs in Italian, ``Qui la Voce della Turchia`` -- or
are they saying ``Tuerkiye``? They sound so much alike. 2230 continues
Italian, but hard to copy with almost equal signal from China, both
mostly music. Like German after 0000 and Portuguese after 0100 on
5960, Italian at 2230 is mistaken overrun, not on B23 schedule where
the only Italian is supposed to be at 0930! Same SAH situation at 2300
when I expect English to overrun on 9610 instead of 5960, but
switching to 5960 I do find it on with VG S9+30/40 signal into UTwente
opening English; retune immediately back to 9610, now I hear CNR8
only, so TRT must have QSYed at the same time I did. Or on this date
not really same Emirler transmitter, where something is always
erroneous.

As for the 5960.005 broadcast, I have to split time with SPAIN and
WOR/WRMI check. 2320 `WYEH` promo, music. 2324 `Weekly Analysis` on
relations with Egypt improving since the coup there in 2013y. Erdogan
and large delegation now visiting Cairo. I cannot catch the name of
the writer even tho it`s not the badax reading it. 2329 `WYEH` promo
again, music. 2333 `Folk/Fairy Tales` about the sister of seven
brothers. 2339 music. 2343 `ABYS` promo, music. 2346 `WYEH` promo yet
again, what crutches, music. 2351 `ABYS` again and s/off the version
with all times wrong in local yet called UTC; something`s always awry
at Ankara. Not noted IS and cutoff time, but not on after 0000, just
East Turkistan, standard denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 15 at 0732, R. Rebelde programming presumed, back
on air at S9+40/45, VG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2230)

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [non?]. Re 4251, NJDM: ``Hi Glenn, A useful
url for locating marine traffic:
US Navy Warships Tracker (marinevesseltraffic.com)
https://www.marinevesseltraffic.com/navy-ships

And for the ship in question:
USS Jason Dunham (DDG-109) NATO WARSHIP Current Position ( - DUAL
TRACKING - ) | Marine Vessel Traffic
https://www.marinevesseltraffic.com/vessels/USS-Jason-Dunham-(DDG-109)/CURRENT-POSITION/1/366997034
David Ross`` -- That`s helpful; shouldn`t such info be classified?
Anyhow as of Feb 14, NJDM is right near Jaxonvil FL (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 2230)

** U S A. 8992 USB, Feb 15 at 1605, ``This is Raindrop`` and fonetix:
TDVUC7 repeated, then alfanumeric ``message follows`` starting with
those same 7. No echo but always background noise. I assume the same
ID is never used more than once?

Feb CIDX Messenger Utility column by Gilles Letourneau informs:
``HF Global Command (HFGCS) 4724, 8992, 11175 and 15016 kHz USB ---
One common use for the HFGCS is to place telephone calls from the
aircraft in flight [...] The HFGCS also carries Emergency Action
Messages (EAMs).

In addition to EAMs, the HFGCS carries a few other types of messages.
A higher priority code for orders is a Skyking Message, which is a
time sensitive message for orders that need immediate attention. Force
Direction Messages (FDM's) are also sent through the HFGCS, although
it is impossible to tell whether the message is an FDM or just another
EAM being read.

Although transmissions are often single sideband (SSB), the use of the
ALE transmission mode is more and more common. HFGCS complements the
use of satellite communications between aircraft and ground stations.

If you hear echo on the frequency you’re listening to, it is due to
the signal often being transmitted over several stations at the same
time.`` I have not happened upon a Skyking Message in many years
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2229 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening

Note: previous report was misyeared Feb 13, 2023 instead of 2024;
sigh

** CANADA. 300 kHz MCW, Feb 14 at 0746, dash and YIV, 500-watt NDB at
Island Lake, Manitoba, <54N/<95W, JBA vs the still hi local noise
level. First copied as YIW but must have been YIV (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. Wolfgang Bueschel replies to my reports of spy numbers
revived on 9330 vs WBCQ: ``9330.000 even kHz nice most modern Chinese
transmitter looking of BBEF (Beijing Broadcast Equipment Factory)
type, audio signal of S=9+10dB up to +20dB, underneath US religious
private WBCQ, from Cuban Spanish SPY number service, MOST LIKELY via
Made in Chinese tx site RadioCuba Bauta, NOT FROM BEJUCAL - old
ancient USSR 50 kW unit. 07.10 UT on Febr 14. y73 de wolfie df5sx
wwdxc topnews`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [non?]. 4251 kHz, Feb 14 at 0732, CW over &
over, nothing but NJDM. Leading up to this log, starting with unID on
odxa iog:

``I copied NJDM being sent repeatedly in morse code on 4251 khz on
2/11/2024 at 0245 utc. Does anyone know where this station is? The
signal was strong and clear into Springfield Ma. USA Jim Bee``

``Good strong signal UTC 0255 Feb 14 Grand Rapids MI. I'm also
clueless as to what it is for. 73 Jack NY8D Amelar``

``Also easy copy on my little Tecsun in the living room on its
built-in whip! Mayne Island, BC. Steve VE7SL McDonald`` at 0304 Feb
14.

Don Moman, Feb 14: ``it was loud in Alberta at 0400 but went off
before recheck at 0420``

``N+3 letters implies a US Navy vessel - however I`ve searched a
number of such callsign lists and not found it; new one? 73, Glenn
Hauser``

``USS Jason Dunham DDG-109 (helis.com)

https://www.helis.com/database/unit/1961-USS-Jason-Dunham/#google_vignette
David Ross``

Illustrated and indicating it is not new. But why these transmissions,
and where be it parked? I notice that in this and many other cases,
the callsigns try to match letters in the ship`s name. Broad search on
call leads to lots of irrelevant New Jersey hits (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.016, Feb 14 at 2343 tune-in via UTwente, VOT S9+45 in
music. Missed most of the broadcast and all of simulSpain while
dealing with an internet outage. Nothing but more music till 2354
s/off for the 1330 only; 6 notes of IS before chopoff, no finesse,
uncovering XJRTV in Chinese, only S9/+5, std genocidal denunciations
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2229 monitoring: confirmed UT
Wednesday February 14 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S6/S7 but good into
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed Wednesday February 14 at 1518 the secret 1500 on WRMI
9955, during the NZ birdsong clip, S5/S7 direct, no jamming audible.

Also confirmed Wednesday February 14 at 2053 the 2030 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.002, S9+5/10 into UTwente; followed at 2059 by `CQ

Also confirmed Wednesday February 14 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490, S9/+10 into
Maryland SDR. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0230 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. (101.5), Wed Feb 14 from 0700 UT, webcast of KSFR Santa Fe
NM, one of my favorite stations, starts `The Third Floor`, vocal,
choral music, sacred and secular, I enjoy but too late. KSFR info:

``Wednesdays Midnight-2:00 am [MST] Bill Cromwell is your host and
listening companion for two hours of Vocal and Choral Classical
Repertoire each week on The Third Floor Presents. Enjoy motets,
masses, cantatas, choruses, lieder, arias, songs, and more from around
the world and across the centuries. For more The Third Floor Presents,

That also leads to audibility on demand; out of Fort Loudon, PA:

https://exchange.prx.org/series/44990-the-third-floor-presents-vocal-choral-classical-mu

Provenance of title remains a mystery. I previously reported about
this show when it was on KUCO, which did not last long: see under
OKLAHOMA:
https://www.w4uvh.net/ghlogs_2022_1208_1214.txt

A few minutes into it this week on KSFR stream, jarringly interrupted
by a few seconds of African? drumming, automation screwup? It also
keeps cutting short the closing announcement of the preceding show
`Map Is Not Territory`. I have notified The Invisible Man, Mark
Kuechle about this. I guess he is voice-tracking, not really `live`
there, altho I think he is really at KSFR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
