Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15476 RCUSB, Sat Feb 3 at *2300 as publicized 23 hours
earlier, LRA36 back with another broadcast, JBA S5/S6 = local noise
level direct, but S9/+10 into Argentine SDR - soon all four rx are
tuned to this and I get one of them. 2308 about history of base. 2310
the `Antártida` song we haven`t heard for a while; 2314 ``en vivo``,
``haciendo soberanía`` and then long interview about scientific
research, military involvement. Staking out Arg. ``sovereignty`` over
Antarctica is the real reason for all this, contrary to
``international continent`` treaties. 0010 Feb 4 still going asserting
it`s the first program of 2024. Wonder if this will be regular time
instead of 18-24+ UT Sats. Again I do detect the JBA reduced carrier
by USB stepping-down tuning, as someone else was doing before I
inherited the rx. Also wonder if the eventual new 10 kW will too. 0013
chops off air during music. 0015.5 comes back during music after a
false start; 0016 another ``haciendo soberanía`` ID, more gab. At 0019
I compare the pitch of the RC when tuned to 15475.50 USB vs 15476.50
LSB - and it is lower on the upper side, indicating the RC is slightly
above 15476 instead of below; and taking into account a slight
correxion factor when tuned to 15000.000 WWV. 0028 they say the new 10
kW transmitter will be solid-state and will build a different antenna
to replace the rhombic (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 3 at 0732, Fox movie fanfare of all things,
presumably R. Rebelde programming, into distorted music, S9+20.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5980, Sat Feb 3 at 0728, jamming vs WWCR leapfrog
mixing product of 5890 over 5935 another 45 kHz higher, which is S9
stronger than usual. At least Cuba tries to block it, hi,
inadvertently since the jamming is leftover originally against
long-abandoned R. Martí frequency. The mix overnight possible only on
weekends when 5890 be active. On inside randomwire due to T-storms
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 15140 & 11760, Feb 3 at 1637, both absent, the only two
midday frequencies. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Both also off
during English hour at 2015 check of Maryland SDR, but RFI Hausa from
FRANCE well occupies 11760 at 2000-2030 only. Bits of English into
translation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: noted in my logs even if not directly
related to radio. UT Saturday February 3 at 0525, my chair shakes
briefly. Altho there is a thunderstorm too, this timing does not
correlate with any thunder, which would not shake the ground like this
either. USGS report:

Magnitude ``5.1 - 8 km NW of Prague, Oklahoma, 35.534°N 96.764°W,
2024-02-03 05:24:28 (UTC) depth: 3.0 km``

https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/ok2024cish/map?dyfi-responses-10km=true&shakemap-intensity=false
At least 8 further quakes in OK were recorded in the next few hours,
max. 3.5 and unfelt here; and many more of lesser magnitude.

https://kfor.com/news/local/occ-some-wastewater-wells-near-prague-will-close-after-earthquake/
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.003, Feb 2 at 2300, VOT almost accurate
timesignal, JB audible direct vs local noise level. Soon over to
UTwente where measured, much better S9+30/40 well above noise level
there, English news, songs, etc. 2331 `Always-by-your-side` promo,
more music. 2336 `With-you-every hour` promo, more music. 2341
`a-b-y-s` again, more music. 2346 `w-y-e-h` again -- TG for these
crutches!, more music. 2350 multi-lingual ID filler reel covers
another biminute of wasted airtime. 2352 s/off for 1330 broadcast
only, IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs. 2358 cut off uncovering the
already audible CCCCCCI, i.e. Xinjiang RTV from East Turkistan, land
of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems; vs
Turkey`s denied genocide of Armenians a century ago (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday February 3 at 0130 on WRMI 5850; into the NH SDR I had
running for WBCQ, 5850 bothered by some noise, not jamming; S9+30
direct OK except for nearby lightning crashes.

your efforts are much appreciated! Thanks again for WOR - a valuable
resource.``

One may also contribute by money order or check on a US bank to:
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` WBCQ check into NH SDR, UT Sat Feb 3 at 0040:
3265+ off; 5130.260 ATATT; 6159.93; 7489.951; 9330.000. On 7490v at
0100 opening remark, ``Why do we do this shortwave thing?`` -- all
about Free Speech. Angela is all dressed up for SW. Discuss std shifts
on antique autos and how people today don`t know how to operate them.
No datestamp heard and not sure if new or repeat, but I`m mainly
monitoring this at 0000-0230 UT:

Frontline Jan 30, 2024 --- Democracy On Trial #4209 --- OETA WORLD ---
The roots of the criminal cases against former President Trump
stemming from his 2020 election loss. Amid the presidential race,
examining the House Jan. 6 committee's evidence, the threat to
democracy and the historic charges against Trump. Broadcast In:
English Duration: 2:26:46
https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/documentary/democracy-on-trial/

Which Drumpfsters should also audioview if they can summon up an open
mind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 3 at 0517.4*, WTWW-2 cuts off the air just as I
tune in. Had been running in background since cut on just before 0000,
and no outages noticed but could have been some. George says they have
a new heat exchanger so should be more reliable from now on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1240.19 approx., Feb 3 at 0745 UT, standout het.
MWoffset shows nothing so far off in US or elsewhere in WHemisphere.
On inside randomwire due to T-storms. Likely KCRT Trinidad CO, long
askew. Last logged on 1240.23 approx., Sept 6, 2023 at 0345. But
*still* not on MWOffsets list. Here`s a review of my logs over the
years and the original report, reverse order: {back to 2013y including
1240.20 exactly}

** ANTARCTICA. 15476 RC USB, Feb 2 at 2308, another test as publicized
from LRA36 - direct reception the best here in a long time, well above
local noise level of S3/S5 so quite readable, S5/S7 with music, RAE
multilingual ID, then 2309 RNASG ID. At 2325 I switch to favorite
Argentine remote where it`s S9/+10, mostly music. With that strength I
can barely perceive there still be a reduced carrier, as in USB I tune
downward, but can`t really pinpoint it to .98 as before. 2359 ``somos
un nuevo sonido para su radio``; pause and seeming live announcement
to listen again tomorrow at 23 UT for the first program of the new
season; was it `Uniendo Voces`? Not sure what he called it; nothing
more. Originally publicized to be two hours long, later only one
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11760, Feb 2 at 1618, RHC unusually weak, S7/S8 as
Spanish modulation cuts out and on. But again with parasitic wobbly
spurs approx. plus/minus 4.4 kHz around 11755.6 and 11764.4; also
multiples even more diffuse about 11768.8, 11773.2. Jammers sound
louder on 11860 & 11930 but obscured by that Grimesland NC station.
15140 is off. The Other Side:

``The regime tramples on the sexual and reproductive rights of women
prisoners -- In the case of Cuban political prisoner Lisdany Rodríguez
Isaac, Havana is once again breaking its own laws and violating
international legal protocols.

Ángeles Rosas Madrid 30 Ene 2024 - 18:33 CET
Lisdany and Lidianis Rodríguez Isacc. Prisoners Defenders/X

The Cuban regime is once again breaking its own laws and violating
international legal protocols that protect sexual and reproductive
rights, in the case of political prisoner Lisdany Rodríguez Isacc,
held in the prison of El Guamajal, in Villa Clara. Seven weeks
pregnant, the young woman is being pressured to undergo an abortion at
the same time she is being deprived of adequate food and medical
care...``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 7295-7300-7305, Feb 2 at 0730, DRM, S9+35 into Canary SDR.
This time I keep the computer on to ID this as heard last few nights.
No sound but silence, no journaliine, displays as from TDF as I had
suspected. S/N varies 9.1 to 10.4, 8.08 kbps. Must have just come on,
as no signal direct at 0727, but S9+25 of noise audible by 0737. Off
by final check 0802. Apparently secret test, why? at *0730-0800*
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 107.1 KNID, and 95.7 KXLS, Feb 2 at 1930 UT, dead air in
$ tereo, no coincidence as sibling stations. Still such at 1943 past
2000; but remusicking by next check 2017. Enid market but 107.1 CoL
North Enid, 95.7 Lahoma which is west of Enid, both axually on same
tower; so why the pretense? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 99.7, Feb 2 at 1932 UT, ``The New 99-7, The Wolf``, also
plugs ``The Wolf-pack``. Not so new that it`s not already as such in
the WTFDA DB. Latest in a string of call changes is KWFF, country,
47/47 kW from Mustang, SW of OKC. This was originally an independent
Enid station, but soon sold out to Chisholm Trail Broadcasting, and
eventually sucked into OKC area. FCC FM Query shows Call Sign History,
with change dates but not for the latest!:
KNAH 09/30/2013 = HANK tleps sdrawkcab
KZLS 10/16/2008 = now on 1640
KNID 07/24/2000 = now on 107.1
KXLS 03/20/1981 = now on 95.7!
whether or not the last two manage to modulate; whether or not 1640
manage to transmit at all (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Feb 2 at 2300, token English from SNR, feature
previewed is a 4- instead of 5-day work week, currently being
experimented in Portugal pilot project; S9+30/40 direct well above the
local HNL. 2302 ack. Groundhog Day, then the real news. 2307 TGIF
becomes TGIT? But too much competition this hour: Antarctica, Turkey
and SW première of WOR 2228! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, Feb 2 at 2300, VOT not off the air
direct, but too poor vs noise level; 2336 into UTwente where measured,
song, S9+25/35. 2344 `That`s Why` repeat with the badax, something
about the sun being in the middle of the Milky Way, NOT! Something
always awry at Ankara, music. At 2354 s/off for 1330 broadcast only,
IS; 2357 IS has restarted with German IDs; 2402 still German, but
uncovered Chinese by 2404. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO: from Kari Kallio, Finland:
``"Hello Kari
..//.."Thanks for the short report. We love those comments without
asking for any QSLs^^. Thanks also for the audio files from your
location. We have decided to keep Glenn Hausers' WOR permanetly 'on
schedule', within the CQ Serenade show which has the ARNewsline at the
top of the hour. Glenn following at aprox. 30min past the top of the
hour. We had some nice feedback lately..//.. Cheers to Finland, Andy
(Engineer @ Shortwave Radio, Winsen at the River Aller)" PS, Answer to
my RR of WORLD OF RADIO via Winsen on 3975 kHz the 29th Jan. 2024 at
20:30 UTC+. GH, Welcome to Europe on SW!`` Good, altho I have no
intentional connexion with CQ Serenade.

WORLD OF RADIO 2228 monitoring: confirmed Friday February 2 at 2130 on
IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S8/S9 but noisy with Spain ACI from 1314
into UTwente; better S9+15 clear into nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed Friday February 2 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, S9+20 exceeding
S9+10 local line noise level, but can`t tell whether also any jamming.
T-storm crashes also approaching. Followed at 2259 that `I Love SW`

** U S A. 5085, Feb 2 at 0239, WTWW-2 is gone again; as in last
report, I found it active at 0102. So something`s wrong again, not
attaining full nominal span 23-05 UT. Next evening a receiver on 5085
awaiting WTWW, finally cuts on JIP preacher at *2354.5 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Feb 2 at 0757 UT, S9+28 of dead air; 0759 fires ID
as KLEY Wellington-Wichita, Kansas, 104.1 and 1130, into music. Not
ashamed of cheating with 250 watt day power instead of licensed one
watt at night, which is tantamount to nothing. Woe to KWKH et al., JBA
under the open carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers still audible as late as

UNIDENTIFIED. 7295-7300-7305, Feb 1 at 0725, no signal, DRM or

However, by 0732 when I check it direct, DRM noise at S9+35, so *0730?
It seems I am alone interested in this. Others ought to be awake and

Manuel Méndez had first posted another version at 1919. Tnx to both!

So I bring up 15476 USB on an Argentine SDR at 1954 and hear a bit of
music test before silence, but resuming promptly at 2000 with ID and
songs, S9+10 sufficient, as good a signal as before. At 2035 check I
could not hear it direct, but several North Americans were getting it
poorly. Spot chex later found only music except at 2151 the RAE
multilingual ID reel.

Unknown when RNASG may resume regular Saturday? broadcasts, with this
old but repaired transmitter before the new 10 kW be installed (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 31 at 0741, R. Rebelde frequency on air but with
congratulations on 25th anniversary of Habana Radio, so still relaying
that FM station, as others also note. Wonder for how much longer and
if this affect R.R. MW frequencies? Among countless ones, I am not
getting any clear reception to compare, 670, 710, 1620 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 31 at 1540, RHC music S9+25, overmodulated and
distorted, splattering plus/minus 10 kHz or so. // 15230 much weaker
but clearer S6/S7. At 1544 I check // 11760 which is similarly
splattering, but not the spurblobs every 4.3 kHz as yesterday.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 17790, Jan 31 at 1537, about equal level mixture
of WRMI in English and RRI in Romanian: a failure of HF coordination
with a one-hour overlap, despite loads of vacant frequencies on the 16
mb. Perhaps radically different target areas did not energize any red
flags: RRI Galbeni, 285 degrees for France, and WRMI 160 degrees for C
& S America hoping it will also reach original target Africa, as
before eastward antenna was hurricaned (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 31 at 2300, token English from SNR after accurate
timesignal, first biminute previewing later topic: interview about the
Royal Collexions Gallery; 2302 news mainly about an amnesty vote
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.002, Jan 31 at 2311, VOT not off the air, S9+10 direct
but needs more vs noise level. 2336 into UTwente when measured,
S9+30/40 with `The Middle East and Turkey` about relations with
Kuwait; 2342 music; 2346 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, 2347 `Sports
Panorama` with the badax; buts off at 2351* I think early before any
s/off could be uttered but I was not listening closely; uncovering of
course the XJRTV understation in Chinese from another land of
genocide, ChiCom-controled East Turkistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 365 MCW kHz, Jan 31 at 0748, AA, 100-watt ND beacon at Fargo
/ Harwood ND. A few other regulars/occasionals JBA vs local noise
level which is slightly less above 350 or so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 35790, Jan 31 at 2312, JBA carrier presumed from R. Martí,
Grimesland. Still hoping for enough mod to // it to fundamental bigsig
11930. On the R75 there are some stronger carriers in the 35s,
probably birdies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
