** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Feb 10 at 0701, JBA carrier, surely R.
Kiribati; while no trans-Atlantic signals are making it. A few nights
ago, 846 was stronger than usual, but never able to pull any audio
from it. Tnx to Gary DeBock, here`s what it would be like:

``846-Kiribati has a very early fade in (around 0500 UTC in the Oregon
coast), and signs off around 1015 UTC. Here's its typical format, with
the standard female announcer speaking from 1:30 to 1:58 in another
recording from last month``

First broadcasts confirmed UT Friday February 11 at 0130 on WRMIs:
5850 VG S9+10/20 direct; 7780 F S9/+10 direct but sounds much weaker
by comparison. 7780 good S8-S9 into UTwente as aimed (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11555-USB, Feb 10 at 1553, VP 2-way in Spanish Intruders
if you consider 25mb SWBC starting at defacto 11500 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17850, Feb 10 at 1546, big open carrier turned off in a
few seconds before I could measure it. Nothing comparable among few
week known signals on 16 mb. Most likely it`s VOA Grimesland NC
testing prior to scheduled service on quite different frequency, 17655
from 1700 or 17700 from 1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIAL

``Just a short word. I started listening to SW radio when in high
school back around 1980 when I was 14-15 and listened to you regularly
for several years. Thank you! The information you provided was
absolutely fascinating at a time when world communications really were
at the heart of understanding the world.

I am glad to find that you are still doing the program. Thank you for
what you do. I am planning to get into Ham radio this year, taking the
ARRL exam and going from there.

All the best to you, Dan Golembeski (Michigan)``

** ANTARCTICA [and non?]. 15475.98 RCUSB, Wed Feb 9 not tuned in until
1558, feared too late, but LRA36 still on air with music, VP S3 into
Campo, Brasil SDR, no better at Brasília #2. Still going at 1601, but
1602 QRMed by unID 2-way on 15475.00 USB exactly. Maybe Spanish but so
colloquial I can`t be sure. Then nothing more from LRA36. I wonder if
the 2-wayers and LRA36 are aware of each other. Occasional 2-way
contacts next few minutes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Feb 9 at 2310, S9+25/40 of dead air in Spanish from
RHC. 13680 is off; something`s always wrong at RHC. 13650 is on with
usual Chinese music replacing CRI in Portuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.605, Feb 9 at 2155, R. Cairo S9+5/15 and suptorted in
English, via Maryland remote tuned to 9900 showing SAM offset -395 Hz,
same as stable direct readout daily from UTwente. Something`s always
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920-, February 9 at 0346 from music into ID as
``--- radio station``, then sounds like Russian rock; 0357 hard rock
song sounds with Russian lyrix past hourtop 0403+. Probably R. Pushka
[gun/rifle], I`ve heard previously on this offset frequency slightly
low, maybe from western USA, but no HFU reports of it at this time.
Pushka posts directly on HFU such as within:

Yessir! Thanks for trying! I like you for helping me! Maybe one day I
can get an RF amplifier. But still not bad for 15 watt carrier and 1/4
vertical.``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, February 9 at 2303 direct, no signal from
VOT English to N America; still nil at 2312, 2319 chex. At 2337 via
UTwente, S9 on 5960.001 --- but it`s Chinese! i.e. PBS Xinjiang,
Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uighurs and other Moslems. Don`t buy anything made by their slave
labor. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 6993, Feb 9, 2022 at 0724 UT, JBA carrier, presumed same as
last logged Oct 4, 2021, when I also referenced this from 2017:

``6993, Sept 10 [2017] at 0002, JBA carrier as almost always audible
from presumed WH2XWF, experimental 164-watt transmitters with several
locations in Florida, to study ionospheric disturbances, never IDing,
nothing but dead air``. So new log for the record (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2124 monitoring: ``Dear Glenn: World of Radio

** AUSTRALIA. 2368.43, Feb 8 at 2102, S4-S5 with fades of Greek songs
past 2125 via VK2GGC SDR, R. Symban. There has been lots of good
discussion about this by nearby Aussies in the WOR iog (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 15190.10, Feb 8 at 2323, JBA S1-S5 of talk, music? Even so
it seems undermodulated. I`m confident it`s R. Inconfidência, Belo
Horizonte on its signature off-frequency. That`s a strange name for a
radio station if you go by its translations in my Langenscheidt
dixionary: ``disloyalty, infidelity, unfaithfulness`` --- perhaps a
quite different contextual meaning or historical connotation in
General Mines?

11780, Feb 8 at 2322, no signal from RNA, but VG on 6180. Wonder if on
the way to installing pure DRM, after successful? low-power but
high-gain tests a year ago on 11905 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Feb 8 at 2258, RHC English is back today after AWOL
yesterday, S9+20 but deep fades to S6, just concluding item about
ballet and De Falla music I wish I had heard; ``Ed Newman`` outro as
first of two hours, but second hour will not follow immediately in
current scheduling (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.606, Feb 7 at 2131 check via UTwente, R. Cairo in
S9+40+ of dead air except for some hum; and occasional bursts of
extremely distorted Englishy talk. Something`s always egregious in
Egypt.

9899.606, Feb 8 at 2119, S9+30/40 of big hum but constant suptorted
modulation of music and talk, also UTwente. Ditto (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 8 at 2321, VOT English is on today, S9/+20 direct
but undermodulated on the squealing transmitter. Recheck at 2345 on my
other radio, better mod level in music but still squealy. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 515 MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0732 UT, OS, 25 watt ND beacon at Ohio
State, Columbus; JBA in additional high noise level here; in continued
absence of PN Ponca City OK from 515 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2124 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday February 8
at 2330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 direct, no jamming audible. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A [and non]. 7772-7784 approx., Feb 8 at 2315, WRMI 7780 is
battered by clicking OTH radar; WRMI already weak here off the side.
Seemingly aimed right against it, or just doesn`t care.

7570, Feb 8 at 2316, this WRMI has very different QRM problem, roaring
noise but unlike DRM; nominally aimed NW right at us, WRMI is also
much weaker than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [non]. 9580, Feb 8 at 2313, 1 kHz tone. Must be VR prior to
2315-2400 Vietnamese via USAGM PHILIPPINES, violating Separation of
Church & State. For those who don`t care, let me explain that the USG
is showing extreme favoritism to one particular religion, thus opening
itself up to demands from far less savoury gospel huxters for time on
our secular transmitters. That it`s an ``exchange`` for SMG airtime is
beside the point, an equal violation. BTW, Aoki shows that Taiwan in
Korean is also on 9580 at 2300-2330 but not heard even tho its beaming
would be more favorable for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4095.7, Feb 8 at 0730, upward sweeps are JBA, i.e. the
Desert Whooper beacon which intersperses CW IDs as DW. I often hear it
like this without relogging. For some reason DW on Feb 6 reposted to
HCDX a last August reply to me with background info about it:

http://www.hard-core-dx.com/article.php?story=20220206181502578&mode=print
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11689.90 approx., Feb 7 at 2311, S7-S3 open carrier like
at 1531, now measured on my other receiver. On the KiwiSDR network,
Feb 8 at 0021 I try to locate it by TDOA; measured now by Missouri
remote at -74.8 to -74.9 Hz below, i.e. 11689.925. And by Maryland at
-74.7 to -75.0, S5. I pick four locations, Brazil, Rio Grande Valley,
NE USA and northern Utah: TDOA leads to ``probably`` in the North
Atlantic``; delete the Utah one and try again: ``north Pacific``!
Obviously useless, no point in quoting the exact imaginary
coördinates; then I realize that TDOA may depend on modulation timing,
so no good anyway on open carriers. Next day Feb 8 circa 1530 check,
no signal circa 11690. Of the known occupants of 11690, the one most
likely off-frequency is Madagascar.

Now at 2034 February 8, UTwente is getting it on 11689.914 at S7 ---
with RTTY. So it`s not a broadcaster but a usually idle RTTY outlet
leaving the carrier on. Intruder! Anyway. Still clattering away at
2307.

Next step is to search the UDXF iog, on 11689. -- immediately comes up
a thread from August *2006* started by me, but mainly about two other
frequencies, 7455 and 9960:
https://groups.io/g/UDXF/topic/3508999#3014
Search on 11690 gets most of the same, nothing new, disregarding 11690
as a 5-digit cypher group rather than frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7500, Feb 6 at 2238, Chinese JBA S7-S8, presumably CNR1
jammer as always more likely to be heard than target, in this case VOA
via Thailand this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Feb 6 at 2236, NO signal from RHC in English. 11850 is
on but dead air or trace of modulation, wiggle that patchcord, flanked
by parasitic JBA spur on 11840. 9710 modulates Spanish, nothing on 13
MHz band now. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.60, Feb 6 at 2234 check direct, R. Cairo with S7-S8 of
dead air in English. As usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 MCW kHz, Feb 7 at 0220 UT, PN, 25 watt ND beacon at
PoNca City is OFF again. Guess we are in for a spell of intermittency.
Still off at 0702, 1524. See USA for a 517 log (Glenn Hauser, Enid,,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re 1650, ``KYHN`` report: Oops! Current call is KFSW; one
shouldn`t believe anything from Red Eye Radio. ``The Cross`` 98.7
which is duplicated on 1650, does not admit to carrying RER on its
woefully incomplete ``program schedule``. Does brand itself as serving
``Arklahoma`` rather than ``Oklansas`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 6 at 2311, NO signal from VOT English even unto
UTwente, nor the ChiCom. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 517 MCW kHz, Feb 7 at 0702 UT, FN, 25 watt NDB at Clinton /
Hills, Iowa, now definitely copied while 515 PN PC OK is off (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2124 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
February 6 at 2100 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, Villa Estense,
S9+10 steady into nearby Noale SDR, no CCI except for lite medium SAH
from something; unless a bit narrowed, some ACI from RNE-5 Castilian
on 1314, Romanian Actuality on 1332.

Confirmed Sunday February 6 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+30 into
Knoxville.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 7 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Almost missed check 0400v UT Mon Feb 7 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-, but
tuned in at 0432 via Maryland remote, JBA sounds like my intonation,
if starting a bit late; then bringing up webcast, ``General Underseas
Service of Partial India Radio``; pirate I guess provided by HRI as
scheduled. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A.. 9940, Feb 6 at 2235, surprise, WTWW active on this rarely
used frequency, not 9930. S9+25 with gospel huxter, presumably SFAW
but no way I`m going to listen long enough to verify that. 5085 is
also on early this Sunday, Ted expressing piety to a caller, in a ham
radio show? No other possible frequencies active: 5830, 9475, 9930,
15810. Why not the usual 9475 for SFAW WTWW-1 programming? Something`s
looney at Lebanon.

HFCC never breaks down by individual transmitters but for WTWW has
three different antenna azimuths each with a possible pair:
40 degrees: 9940, 15810 [#3 by default]
50 degrees: 5830, 9475 [#1]
180 degrees: 5085, 9930 [#2]
But we won`t believe the #3 transmitter be operable unless WTWW ever
heard on three frequencies at once (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1460, Feb 6 at 2242 UT, surprised to hear English RCC
discussion instead of Spanish KZUE El Reno OK; on E-W antenna, but
some signs of KZUE QRM on the N/S. Must be KHOJ ``Heart of Jesus``
with EWTN, skywaving 12 kW day power and pattern broadly thisaway SW
from St. Charles MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11689.924, Feb 7 at 1531, S2-S3 open carrier. Nothing
listed now in EiBi, Aoki or HFCC. At other hours on ``11690``, East
Turkistan, Guam, Madagascar; and Finland at this hour if it were first
Saturday for SWR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
