Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. See USA: WOR monitoring, for pointless RAE IDs
looping on WRMI 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, Dec 6 at 0734, African screeching, then talk, at
S5/S6 the SSOB, R. Ndarason Internationale, via ASCENSION; only a few
other weak sigs on 25m, #2 being 11830 = BBCWS English via SÃO TOMÉ
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Dec 6 at 1535, RHC music audio cutting out
intermittently // much weaker 15140; lyric ``no quiero`` repeating.
1538 ID inviting contacts to musica@rhc.icrt.cu for `Sonido Cubano`
program. Had not noted such an email before rather than usual enet or
etecsa. On their website I cannot find any email address displayed.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, Dec 6 at 1526, secular-sounding song,
S9/+20, 1529.5 very quick English saying you can now hear us at
vomkorea.com and off at 1530* sharp. It`s the mostly-Dhivehi service
which habitually puts in such a good signal here on the opposite
worldside of the target, from secret site believed probably to be
RBAustralia. I had not checked this 1500 broadcast for quite a while.
Website converts to https://vomkorea.com/en/ which implies in English,
but really mostly Korean, and no Maldives mentioned on homepage -
unless it`s in Korean! Internal site searching does lead to several
stories in English about it:
https://vomkorea.com/en/?s=maldives
It seems that Christians are persecuted, prosecuted there. Does VOMK/M
encourage them to stay underground or seek martyrdom? They should be
wary of anything with Martyrs in its name. This explains the situation:
https://vomkorea.com/en/2023/08/29/vomk-report-268/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Dec 6 at 2322, token English from SNR confirmed,
S9+10/30 into Maryland SDR, but no time to listen. Still no podcast
for Dec 4 so presumably no show, but shortly could hear today`s Dec 6
that way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960.000, Dec 6 at 2324, no signal from VOT into
UTwente, ceding the frequency to XJPBS in Chinese(?), from East
Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and
other Moslems. As soon as I saw the exact frequency before hearing it,
I figured it could not be Turkey. Something`s erroneous at Emirler
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2219 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening
Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees.
Dear Glenn: Update, confirming WOR #2219, This time of year the
Christmas lights, QRN, WRMI:
9395, 0130, 0145 (45433), TV QRN, 0159, December 5 UTC 2023 [Tue]
9395, 0030, 0044 (45343), 0059, December 6 UTC 2023 [Wed]
(Lemke, Richard -AB) 73’s, Richard``

Confirmed UT Wednesday December 6 at 0054 the 0030 on WRMI 9395, S7/S9
into way offbeam UTwente.

Wed Dec 6 at 1504, I check 9955 to note whether WRMI be on the air or
not: indeed, is on air, with surprise airing of WOR 2219! Skedgrid
still shows `Frecuencia al Día` instead; so unknown whether a one-time
error or deliberate. WOR does appear on sked Thursday at 1500, need to
recheck as that seemed to have been canceled. 9955 stays on after 1530
with utterly pointless RAE multi-lingual ID reel over and over past
1541, presumably entire semihour, instead of RAE French scheduled M-F.
Off after 1600.

WOR 2219 also confirmed Wednesday December 6 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490
minus 86 Hz = 7489.914, S7/S9 into NH SDR; after two weeks of dead air
instead. Just before 2200 I think I heard Pirate Joe say he would no
longer be on SW/WBCQ after Dec 31. Is that correct? Next:

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

Thanks to Doug Brown, London ON, for a generous cheque on a US bank
to:
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702; and says ``Thanks for all
you do for this great hobby of ours``

Or one may contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Dec 6 at 0738, WRMI-5 music overmodulated distorted,
splatter down to 9405, and even detectable down to 9350 on other side
of another WRMI, but the modpeax continue to match 9455 during the
only Fámily Radio hour in Spanish. Something`s outoforder at
Okeechobee. #5 has been a splatterer before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1590, Dec 6 at 0751 UT, ballad in Spanish, break for ID as
``Ambiente Clásico Radio``, another tune. What?? NRC AM Log has
several USSS on 1590, but no such slogan. Nor anything fits in
exhaustive IRCA Mexican Log. Google search finds immediately, a story
from late Aug after the NRC AM Log deadline and printing:
https://rbr.com/ambiente-clasico-secures-chicago-am-ownership/
‘Ambiente Clásico’ Secures Chicago AM Ownership By Adam Jacobson -
August 29, 2023
It`s the new format and ownership of WCGO, Evanston IL, which had been
Korean, 10/2.5 kW. Radio-locator still shows yet another outdated
format, ``Chicago`s News Talk``. Ambiente was already reported by
IRCAns in September. Nitetime coverage map has a notch thisaway to its
SW, major lobe northwards:
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WCGO&service=AM&h=N
but daytime is non-direxional:
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WCGO&service=AM&h=D
Some IRCA reports also suspected ND day pattern at night (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 5 at 0437, RHC with music in English? service, but
not on any other known frequency; 11760 something else, 12000 no
harmonic, 15230 JBA something else? No, nothing but RHC listed ever on
that. Something`s very2 wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760 // 15140, Dec 5 at 1629, RHC Spanish found only on
these, S4/S5 on the lower and S5/S6 on the upper, but 11760 sounds
louder (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Dec 5 at 2324, only active RHC frequency, in
Portuguese. None others found on 13, 11, 9 or 6 MHz bands; but the CRI
relays are on, at 2321, 5990 is S9+20/30 undermodulated; 13650
music-only VG too. JBA carrier on 11980, probably 2 x 5990 as nothing
scheduled fundamentally on 11980 at this hour. Something`s very wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Dec 5 at 2131, R. Cairo, S9+20/35 into UTwente, YL
with news headlines, distorted but understandable; 2132 ID including
``Voice of Africa`` [?], feature of music and talk much more
distorted. Something`s egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [non]. 11760, Dec 5 at 0438, checking RHC frequencies, this
one possible until as late at 0830 per EiBi, instead S9+10/20 of
Swahili with r-f-i ID pronounced in French in passing and a .sw
webref. Yes, via MADAGASCAR at 0430-0500 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Dec 5 at 2318, REE already back on air after
publicized outage starting Dec 4 for work at the Noblejas power
station. Almost passes for Castilian, but it`s really Sefardí as sked
this semihour Tuesdays. S9+30, also on // in ascending frequency
order, descending strength: 12030, 17715, 17755 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 11660, Dec 5 at 1628, TWR tinkling music-box IS and IDs
as from eSwátini, S4/S5 with flutter, probably longpath. HFCC says
Amharic/Oromo at 1630-1700 on 13 degree beam (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Dec 5 at 2320, VOT detectable direct, S9+10 on
generous meter but JBA, between occasional local noise bursts of
S9+40. S9+35/40 into UTwente, 2347 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, and
multi-lingual ID filler reel, 2349 song. 2352 ``with-you every hour``
promo and s/off, this time with correct! UTs and B23 frequencies! But
incomplete, ignoring this very broadcast. 2353 IS starts; 2356
restarts with German IDs twice-minutely. Dec 6, 0000 almost accurate
timesignal and s/on extraneous German; right into Nachrichten, uses
same stingers/liners as English. 0009 Tuerkische Presseschau; 0011
``mit Ihnen alle Stunden`` promo, Musik. 0015 multi-lingual ID filler
reel; usw. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2219 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday December 5 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+30 into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Tuesday December 5 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into
Missouri SDR, but only JBA into TWR Brownsville SDR closer to its
aiming. Again, no noise blast ute QRM spoiler audible during first 14
seconds; that over & done with?

Also confirmed Tuesday December 5 at 1426 the 1400 on WRMI 9955, S4/S6
direct. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1200 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB [ex-1000]
1230 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB [previous #2218][ex-1030]

** U S A. Greg Hardison has the answer to my quandary over VA vs GA on
1690:
"... 1690 is 'WMLB-AM` Atlanta ..." - WMLB is owned these days by some
r/wing reactionary in Virginia, same owner of WJFN/820 in Chester and
of late, WJFP/740 also in Chester, the one just outside of Philly,
along with possibly one or two others in the mid-Atlantic area. I've
seen indications in the past that all of the above are programmed out
of the Hub at WJFN, including local mid-Virginia sponsors and
references. Cheaper that way; saved overhead=more money left to give
to trump. My own funds say that you indeed did receive WMLB, on 1690,
with Red Neck Radio.`` Tnx, Greg (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Dec 4 at 2315, S9/+10 of dead air, obviously RHC, and
its *only* signal I can find now anywhere else on the 6, 9, 11, 13 or
15 MHz bands with special attn to known channels whether supposedly
sked at this hour or not -- except: 13650 the absolutely pointless CRI
``Portuguese`` relay with nothing but fill music for years.
Something`s very2 wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440-, Dec 4 at 2156, S9+10/20 of deadair except for some
hum direct, obviously R. Cairo about 5 Hz low halfway thru `English`
sesquihour. Something`s amiss at Abis. Other days recently no signal
at all, so this is progress (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Dec 4 at 2300, no signal in English from SNR, as
forewarned due to electrical work at the Noblejas power station. May
or many not be back on in time for next token English, Wed Dec 6. Was
there a non-SW Englishow anyway? So far no podcast since Dec 2, easily
reached via WOR Hitlist, at
https://www.rtve.es/play/audios/emision-en-ingles/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, Dec 3 at 2324, VOT English not off the
air, S9+30/35 into UTwente; 2343 ``always-by-your-side`` promo and
`Did You Know That`` on an Istanbul museum, voiced by the ``badax`` =
woman with a heavy accent; 2353 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo; and
s/off with sked times of UT+3 labeled as UTC; 2354 IS; 2356 restart IS
with German IDs; to 2357* uncovering the CCCCCCI. Something`s always
awry at Ankara.

5960.005, Dec 4 at 2300, VOT detectable direct vs noise level, not off
the air. Via UTwente S9+20/30: 2334 `Feeling Supreme/The Healing
Spring` on the benefits of satiating foods; well, yes. 2340
``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2344 `La Bamba` theme and `New
Day, New Choices`, missed topic. 2348 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo,
`Did You Know That` on an Adana dish. 2353 s/off with sked of B23
frequencies but all times wrong UT+3 called ``UTC``. Something`s
always awry at Ankara. 2355 IS twice before plugpull uncovering the
CCCCCCI from East Turkistan, std denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28230.8 CW, Dec 4 at 2158 EEEEEEEE NG7I/B etc., 10m ham
beacon among many others; WI5V list:
``28.2308 NG7I C RITZVILLE, WASHINGTON 2 WATTS, VERTICAL new start
date 6 Dec 2021`` -- and QRZ.com:

back. No need for an SASE or anything like that. Here's the QSL card
for the beacon:`` {cheesecake sitting on edge of roof straddling
antenna pole} (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. ``Hi Glenn! Re your reception of K6SSB on 28265 on Dec 2,
you may also find it useful to check the
https://rxx.classaxe.com/en/rna/signals database, which lists nearly
700 10m ham beacons that are or were transmitting from North America,
in addition to the WI5V roster and the QRZ.com website. Although there
are many more NDB receptions being added to this database daily,
there’s a small group of us who have contributed our 10m receptions to
this database recently. K6SSB was logged four times in October 2023.
Steve Howe, Saint Albans, Vermont`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2219 monitoring: Confirmed Sunday
December 3 at 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9 across
Europe to UTwente with no CCI.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 4 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into
Durango2 SDR, as best one in Maurice LA has been offline - but here at
least, no noise blast audible during first 14 seconds!

Also confirmed UT Monday December 4 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.35, S9+10 direct, sufficient except during intermittent line
noise bursts to S9+30! Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 9265V, Dec 4 at 2312, WINB S9+20/30 of music, but with BFO,
carrier is very rapidly wobbling, a longtime defect of this but much
worse now than lately. Maybe not noticeable in AM tuning (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540, Dec 4 at 0803 UT, (479) area code ad for something in
Scranton, -- what?? ``True Country``, weather info, then ``Real
Country``. Not Pennsylvania, but Arkansas. As in NRC AM Log, it`s
KLYR, Ozark AR, as ``True Country``. Ozark is east of Ft Smith on I40,
Scranton further and off I40 to the south. 479 is NW Arkansas. Not bad
for one watt! Could it possibly be on 500 watt day power? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1690, Dec 4 at 0805? UT, Virginia references, ``the
Commonwealth``, into `Red Eye Radio`, i.e. WPTX Lexington Park,
Maryland, address in Mechanicsville, both of which are in SW MD, quite
close to VA partially in coverage area; 10/1 kW, but NRC AM Log does
not show it with RER, rather AC/EZL format. Per that the only RER on
1690 is WMLB in GA. IL or CO are the regular 1690s heard here. Nicely
displaying RER affiliate list at
https://www.redeyeradioshow.com/red-eye-radio-affiliates/
agrees that its only 1690 is ``WMLB-AM`` Atlanta -- and every single
MW station is shown with an ``-AM`` suffix, which is nonsense! There
was no sign of two stations mixing, and I can`t imagine a Georgian
with Virginia references as ``the Commonwealth``. Website
https://1690wptx.com/ asserts ``more music, less talk`` and is quite
Marylandish. The VA refs I thought were local, just before rejoining
RER. Schedule at https://1690wptx.com/schedule is not very helpful,
nothing but ``regular programming`` 24/7!! Now I`m wondering if
without embargo it had to be WMLB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1690, Dec 4 at 2320 UT, several Relevant Radio, Catholic
promos during break in a talkshow, of course KDMT Arvada CO, dominant
now but some deep fades. Official Dec sunset is 2330 UT, so still on
10 kW daypower (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Dec 3 at 0100, continued from last report, VOT is

German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1510 kHz, Dec 3 at 0637 UT, traditional choral Xmas carols,
with WLAC nulled about 6 Hz away. I`m checking following reports that
R. Monumental, Ecuador was being widely heard in N America, but
unlikely to be this. 0700 English ID mentions translator but I can`t
copy any calls. Another try at 0800: KPLS Littleton CO plus 97.7 and
92.9. NRC AM Log shows that`s the `K-plus` group, with KPLS-FM on 97.7
and K225CZ on 92.9. Unless a daytime cheater, I figured it would
likely be this, due to paucity of 1510 night stations around here;
yet, seemingly unlikely due to tight NNE/SSW pattern both day and
night, so we are very much in a null; out of whack? KPLS is also
remarkable with a much *higher* power at night, 10/25 kW. Night
coverage:
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=KPLS&service=AM&h=N
Own website shows nothing but 1510, and programming, other stuff such
as Radio 74 International, correlate with 3ABN = 7DA TV network.

WLAC is dominant signal here, 50 kW, but direxional night with 3 big
lobes and 2 deep nulls toward Spokane and Boston:

As for the 6 Hz SAH, that does not compute for WLAC vs KPLS, but does
fit recent measurements for WLAC vs Quito at

However it seems that KPLS varies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat Dec 2 at 1835, LRA36 is underway,
with music, S4/S6 into Argentine SDR; 1838 `Uniendo Voces` mostly
talk; 1852 ``Antártida`` song. Circa 1920, NO signal direct. 2052
music, 2102 ID; by 2157 I am getting trace of a signal direct. At 2300
much better S9 direct about same as intermittent line noise peaks,
lively music. Back to Arg remote at 0006 Dec 3, still on about meteo
conditions, S9 peaks. 0028 continues, weaker (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 11815, Dec 2 at 0747, R Brasil Central music but
considerable CCCCCCI, as CNR1 jamming is scheduled here until 0800
against RTI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDONESIA. 7289.93, Dec 2 at 0810, tho I`d rather not be, finally I
am semi-awake late enough to try for RRI Nabire - and there it is! on
signature off-frequency, S4/S7 of music. Frequently reported by Ron
Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, including right now:

``INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, from 0745 till suddenly cut
off in mid-song at 0820* UT, Dec 2. Seeing as Christianity is a major
religion in this area, they have already started playing some Xmas
songs ("Jingle Bells" and "Joy To The World"). My music audio is at
-`` https://app.box.com/s/1vumzt35he346hgkb4pbvyqbmss36b91
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, Dec 2 at 2325 rock and DJ talk, S9+10.
Many reports at HFU say it`s WDOG. Some editors refuse to publish linx
to that: why?

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 15320, Dec 2 at 0300 & 0325 recheck, zero signals
from RTI in English, or anything else, into KiwiSDRs in Indonesia,
Thailand, Vietnam. Despite s/off announcements on the only English
broadcast at 1600-1700 on 9405, well heard direct. Also, another
program schedule version via Alan Roe in Dec NASWA Journal shows the
mailbag, `Status Update` at 1645 not only Wed but also Tue, while
previous programming during those hours differs. I have not yet
confirmed whether it axually air on Tuesdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Dec 2 at 2305, VOT again not off the air,
detectable direct, vs S9+40 noise level; R75 Noise Blanker helps.
UTwente next at 2344, multi-lingual ID filler reel, S9+20/30; s/off
and start IS at 2353.6, restart 2356 with German IDs. 0000 timesignal
and s/on as ``Die Stimme von Türkije`` - previously I heard them
omitting the ``von``; times, SW and satellite frequencies for midday
and evening broadcasts, not this extraneous one! Still on past 0028;
shall we expect Portuguese at 0100? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28265 CW, Dec 2 at 2315, DE K6SSB/B repeating. Not in WI5V
beacon roster on any frequency, and no beacon mentioned on his
QRZ.com: ``K6SSB USA flag USA, Matthew J Iaconis, 650 Ash Ct,
Brentwood, CA 94513, USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2219 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday December 2 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S7/9+10 into Maine SDR;
would surely be better closer to NW boresight from FL.

NOT confirmed Sat Dec 2 at 1630 on WRMI 15770, rather a gospel huxter
as now shown on the websked. This airing did not last long. May have
already been gone last Sat when not checked. Still shows WOR, Thu 1500
on 9955, which I thought was already canceled; check again?

Confirmed Saturday December 2 at 1700 on WRN North America stream.

Also confirmed Saturday December 2 at 2034 about 2 minutes into so
started circa 2032 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, VG S9+20 into nearby SDR;
also underway the 2030s on WRN N America webcast and RMI webcast only.

you do for this great hobby of ours``

Or one may contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to

** U S A. 5130+, Dec 2 at 0123 I happen to recheck `AAAWWW` on WBCQ
just as Allan is saying he doesn`t want to talk about the 7490V
transmitter problems, but they were caused by a ``vacuum capacitor the
size of a dill pickle`` - now we know! Also datestamp as Dec 1 so it
is a new show after some weeks off. As for the standard opening, I
can`t imagine any other SW personality always introduced as
``half-nekkid`` of even ``half-naked`` --- and BTW, *which* half?
oooh. Of course on an aural-only medium anyvoice could be fully naked
and we`d never know it if not mentioned (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 2 at 0431, WTWW continues to blast in, S9+50 so
that modulation is also audible on much weaker spurs 5072.1 & 5097.9.
After another gospel huxter, ex-bishop Bob Biermann restarts ``weekend
edition`` of `Truth 2 Ponder`, explaining that he has been undergoing
treatment for bladder cancer the past year. More surgery is sked for
Tuesday, and he hopes to have enough shows recorded by then to last
thru his recovery. Then in January will be immunotherapy. Meanwhile he
``covets`` prayers - I guess in this case coveting is not sinful; anyhow I
wish him well.

5085, Dec 2 at 2317, WTWW blasting in S9+40 with preacher; I was about
to assume serious transmitter problems, breaking up and frequency
wobbling rapidly, until I realized the R75 noise blanker still
engaged, unable to cope with extremely strong signal (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1630 kHz, Dec 2 at 0809 UT, KKGM Ft Worth TX with Black
Information Network promo and joint ID for 1630 & 970 in DFW. 970
would be KHVN, also licensed to Ft Worth, why both? For ancient radios
without X-band? No longer heavenly but keeping previous calls.
Radio-locator shows night coverage of 270-watt 970 from site just NE
of FW, ``local`` contour falls short of Dallas; unlike 1 kW 1630 which
from site further NE of FW halfway to Irving, exceeds almost to Balch
Springs, both ND. Studio address axually in Dallas (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
