Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Wed Nov 23, I am awake and booted by
1500 to usual Argentine KiwiSDR, joining overhearers in Essen,
Florence, to find LRA36, S5/S7 in progress with song, repeating lyric
``Puedo``. 1502 sign/on, multilingual ID, staff list; 1503 themesong;
1507 recitation - always a short scripted piece; 1510 song; 1513 ID
and live YLs with 32nd program of the season, references to fútbol and
mundial - can`t escape these stupid ballgames. 1518 temp is 1 degree;
it`s not dark at midnite; 1519 contact info; 1521 song about Mundial;
but chopped off air at 1522*! I keep listening to noise just in case
until 1555.

Believe it or not, I have never tried to hear their webcast, but after
breakfast, via the WOR Hitlist, I bring it up at 1558:
https://vmf.edge-apps.net/embed/live.php?streamname=sc_rad32-100131&autoplay=true
and there they are, still going, so to them I guess it matters little
whether the SW dumps off or not. Historical talk; 1614 mentions the
33rd program will be next Wednesday; 1615 a Ricky Martin song; 1620
staff-list, = sign/off, ``nos une`` ID and off/pause. 1621 switch to
some other station/audio with rock music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749 USB, Nov 23 at 2321, marine weather in French, VP S3;
also sounds same on 2598 USB, which is JBA so can`t make a match for
sure. Dxinfocentre.com shows both starting at 2317:
2749, VCN, Escoumins, FF/EE, 600 watts
2598, VBQ-22, Natashquan (Escoumins), FF/EE, 600 watts. I guess the ()
means it relays Escoumins. E is in PQ on the north shore of
St-Laurent; So is N, much further east (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13809, Nov 23 at 2319, very weak scratching is all that RHC
13740 AM can muster as a spurblob, 69 kHz above, and even less of a
trace circa 13670. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Nov 23 at 0709, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati,
noticeably stronger than its TA companions 837, 855 et al., from
Spain. I file this under the individual island name, but IRCA has
accepted my contention that it should be separate from Tarawa, two
timezones away; from IRCA DX Monitor Nov 26, published Nov 21:

``IRCA Countries List 2022
Kiribati (formerly Gilbert Islands) [OC] – includes Tarawa
Kiribati, Eastern (aka Line Islands) [OC] – far enough from Tarawa to
count as a separate country, Kiritimati-846 activated in early 2018``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, Nov 23 at 2313 at first sounds like SSTV,
then like turkey-gobbling, mixture of music, talk and gobbling. 2323
more of same, S9; 2346 recheck now with a strange drama with a witchy
voice hard to understand, SFX, mysterious music, past 2400, leftover
from H`we`en? Others report these as two different `stations`:
Techno Turkey Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,105790.0.html
and unID, someone else independently using term ``witchy voice``:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,105792.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 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. WRMI:

** VANUATU. 7890 & 11835, Nov 23 at 0725, JJBBA carriers from RV
harmonix (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA split MW carrier search, Nov 23 at
0709: 711, 774-2, 837, 855-2 but none higher in huge splash levels
from domestix. Medium-speed beat on 774, slow on 855, i.e. Spains,
also 837, and 711 would be Morocco. All weaker than 846 Kiritimati

** CUBA [non?]. 6100 & 6060, Nov 22 at 0741, JBA carriers. Hard to
believe RHC unless on exciters only, but nothing else now in EiBi.
Also something on 6000 S9/+10 but JBM could be RHC altho CNR1 and Echo
of Hope should be on there by now. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13607, 13673.6, 13806, 13873, 13940 all approx., Nov 22 at
2228, RHC spurblobs about 66 kHz intervals, out of 13740 AM, S9/+25,
and only there can I make out JB modulation of Spy Numbers in Spanish!
While unrelated 13680 is on really in RHC Spanish. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, Nov 22 at 2225, dense music S5/S9, still
2233; 2234 melodic bells, announcement mixed? 2241 ``You are tuned to
?????``, 2242 ``You are tuned to ????? radio service``, more nice
music. These say Black Swan Radio International:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,105757.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Nov 22 at *2300, 5+1 timesignal, but no
pre-IS, perhaps in deference to BBC Oman until 2259*. VOT sign-on with
English schedule, news. But the EAST TURKISTAN carrier has also come
on making a SAH and suppressing VOT modulation, as heard at UTwente.
2305 CCCCCCI modulation starts but well under VOT. After news, Review
of the Tuerkiyish Press; 2315 multi-lingual ID reel; 2317 Weekly
Commentary by the heavy-accent YL so I have no idea what it`s about
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
November 22 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 after first few words of
Tecsun commercial.

Also confirmed Tuesday November 22 at 2330 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+25 into
Missouri, maybe a trace of underjamming audible there. By 2345,
jamming definitely there during slight WRMI fades. Next:

0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 5010, Nov 22 at 0349, WRMI in Spanish, immediately hear
``derechos de trabajo``, so secret R. República hour being repeated
over and over on subject of workers` rights - lacking in Cuba, of
course, previously heard occupying three hours straight at 0300-0600,
filed under CUBA [non]; checked via Maryland remote, sufficient (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7780, Nov 22 at 0745, WRMI with TOMBS S9+10! Much stronger
than usual from this antenna off the side from 222 degrees, since
Hurricane Ian; but // 7570 is even stronger, S9+30/40 so maybe a
pipeline has developed instead of antenna change? (Glenn Hauser,
OK,WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Nov 22 at 0743, JBA carrier, no doubt 2 x 3945 RV,
but nothing on 3 x = 11835 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7275, Nov 22 at 0747, S6/S9 open carrier. PBS Xinjiang
Uighur service listed in EiBi but doubt it would be this strong. KBSWR
in Japanese to start at 0800? Or just a Region 2 ham? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 11590, Nov 21 at 1614, Firedragon traditional
instrumental music-only jamming, S7/S9 direct, about equal level to
Chinese talk: RFA via TINIAN scheduled at 1600-1900. The CC could
otherwise be additional CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 10080, Nov 21 at 0723, S9+10 open carrier but
scratchy, must be that RHC 5040 transmitter again radiating on 2X
instead. Could be serious QRM to legal fundamental transmitters in
aero band. EiBi shows on 10081, 24h HFDL from Shannon, San
Francisco.

What is HFDL?? EiBi`s readme.txt explains only: ``HFDL Squitter
(Aircraft comms station)``. Wikipedia: ``High Frequency Data Link
(HFDL) is an ACARS communications medium used to exchange data such as
Aeronautical Operational Control (AOC) messages, Controller Pilot Data
Link Communications (CPDLC) messages and Automatic Dependent
Surveillance (ADS) messages between aircraft end-systems and
corresponding ground-based HFDL ground stations. Using the unique
propagation characteristics of high-frequency radio waves, the ground
stations provide data link communications to properly equipped
aircraft operating anywhere in the world. As a result, pilots can
always communicate with someone on the ground.``

But what does it sound like on an ordinary radio? And what is
squitter? Explanation from:
https://skybrary.aero/articles/squitter

``The term "squitter" refers to a random broadcast of data occurring
either intentionally or in response to noise.

Description: Mode-S transponders automatically send periodic burst
transmissions called "squitters". These transmissions are self
generated and are not in response to interrogations from a secondary
surveillance radar (SSR) system. The information sent in these burst
transmission serves several purposes including:

Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) - Squitter information
includes aircraft location and vertical speed. This information is
used by ACAS systems on other aircraft to identify potential
conflicts.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) - An extended
squitter is a message or series of messages which broadcast an
aircraft's identification, GPS position, projected aircraft trajectory
and navigation system status to allow controllers to accurately track
the aircraft`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Nov 21 at 2052, RHC in English, S9+10/20 direct, while
this frequency is supposed to be in a break unlike // 15140, weaker
S9/+10 and undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5990, Nov 22 at 0046, CRI Spanish relay going OK for a
change; M&W conversation sounds similar on S9/+10, 6000, which is JBM,
but no //, so that must really be the `Mesa Redonda` TV soundtrack on
RHC. Should easily confirm that by // 11950 --- but that`s S9+10/20 of
dead air! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Nov 21 at 2150, R. Cairo direct, S1/S4 humwhine but
trace of undermodulated English talk. Something`s always egregious in
Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday Nov 21 at 2300, token English from REE is VG
S9+10/25 into Maryland SDR. After the news, at 2305, due to an
exhibition, `Spain thru the eyes of Arabs`, interview with ambassador
from Arab League about Spain being more highly regarded in the Arab
world than European colonial powers. What?! Spain was too, don`t
forget Morocco/Western Sahara, Guinea Ecuatorial -- but true, not
further into Arab world. However, plenty of areas and countries were
colonized, notably in the Américas, Pacífico. See:
https://www.worldatlas.com/geography/the-former-spanish-colonies.html
Of course, Arabs colonized Spain long before vice versa.

No competition from Turkey for the 2300 audience -- me and who else?
which fails to appear at all, q.v. Related topic follows at 2317, a
flamenco festival at Sadler`s Wells:
https://www.sadlerswells.com/flamenco-festival-2022/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Nov 21 at 2259*, BBC quits Oman, but by 2300 no
show from Voice of Turkey - nothing into UTwente. I squelch it in case
it appear while listening to SPAIN, q.v. Aha, signal on late at *2311,
but it`s still not VOT, rather Chinese from Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN,
land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems.
Still no TRT at 2330 after Spainglish finishes. Something`s always
erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 12065, Nov 21 at 1617, S9/+20 of BBC English report from
Qatar, not play-by-play if a SBG be ongoing right now. Singapore relay
scheduled 1300-1900, also via Oman at 12-13. One of best
extracontinental signals on band.

12095, Nov 21 at 1618, equally good signal, S9+10/20 in Korean and
musical ditty, which is also BBC via SINGAPORE at 1530-1830 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 monitoring: not from 0400 UT
Monday November 21 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160 minus 62 Hz = 6159.938 into
Maryland SDR, S5/S8. Instead W.D.C.D. program ID, 0403 someone`s
audition tape as a DJ, real? Continues with strange stuff until 0429
WOR suddenly starts, instead of HRI. After WOR at 0458, opening of
recreated `Amos & Andy`, but cut to TOMBS 0500 on SW, while A&A
continues on A51 webcast. I guess a runover anomaly, WOR still
supposed to be at 0400? Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

About WOR podcasts, from Keith Weston Nov 21: ``Glenn, I *think*
everything is back to normal, but won’t know until a new episode is
posted by you this or next week. Keith`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WTWW: another update from George McClintock on Nov 21: Leap
of Faith registration with state of TN had expired, but he has now
renewed it. No longer seems to be a fraudulent attempt at that by
third party, but George`s renewal due notice in the mail may have been
intercepted. It has also been claimed that all the modulation cards
are on the site, but not so.

I have no more interest in listening to Ted`s hard-sell commercials,
rock and ham shows on WRMI than on WTWW, but FWIW, this from William
Pietschman, Nov 20:
``Ted Randall is back --- WRMI Legends (Ted Randall & Co.) is on:
5:00-6:00 pm Eastern Time daily on 9395 kHz
6:00-7:00 pm ET daily on 5950 kHz
6:00-11:00 pm ET daily on 9455 kHz

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 20 at 2252, RHC English finally caught for first
time this Beason, so apparently nominally 22-23 UT as per usual
pattern shift. S9+10 but JBM, but can recognize `Ed Newman` voice in
Mailbag at 2257; some hashy ACI from 11885 side. Usually no signal on
11880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. I`m hunting for the alleged third of three Sunday broadcasts
in Esperanto on RHC. Website sked says 2230-2300 on 17730 to Buenos
Aires, but that frequency is years out of date. B-22 current EiBi
shows 2330-2400 on 15730, but that frequency is not on either at 2337.
Supposedly at 2330-0100 only in French, Creole and Portuguese, with
Esperanto pre-empting French on Sundays. No sign of Esp`o if any RHC
on 19, 22, 25, 31 m at 2250 check Nov 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, Nov 20 at 2240, S9+10 open carrier direct, except for
some whine, R. Cairo nominally 2115-2245 English to N America.
Something`s always egregious in Egypt. Sometimes not turned on at all,
sometimes with extremely distorted undermodulation (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 10080, Nov 20 at 2236, 2251 and still 2305, S9/+10 open
carrier, presumed RHC 5040 transmitter ``testing``, mistuned to second
harmonic, nothing on 5040, but previously heard with RHC modulation.
5040 supposedly starts at 2200 per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Nov 21 at 0152, no signal from R. Progreso into
Maryland SDR, just CODAR swirshing. 5025 & 5040 Cubans still absent
too. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 11825, Nov 20 at *2256 open carrier, S9+10 with some
humwhine; 2258.5 one kHz tone; 2300 2+1 timesignal, so missed first
few pips from Greenwich? BBC ID and promo this hour to be `BBC
Trending` after 2301 news by Sue Montgomery. This one hour is relay
via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my 325 kHz unID NDB, Q: Harold Frodge replies: ``Paul
Dobosz sez maybe MA from Midland TX.`` Harold, Tnx, I bet that`s it.
Often heard here when awake. Maybe M+A were run together or I was too
sleepy to notice a pause. On 326 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
November 20 at 2100 on NEXUS/IBA IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz,
S9+10/20 into nearby Noale SDR, only lite CCI from presumed Smooth
Radio, England.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 21 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, but has
heavy noise suspected of being internal defect? Maybe not, as it`s
worse into Maryland remote than Missouri, S9+5. Waterfall shows
blotchy noise from 7760 to 7800, unlike Cuban jamming. It seems to
pause before 0100, resume for gospel huxter. Strange.

Also confirmed UT Monday November 21 at 0130 on WRMI 5950, VG S9+15/28
into Missouri SDR. Next:

0400vUT Monday WBCQ Area 51 6160v to WSW
0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
0030 UT Wednesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

** U S A. From our WOR podcast manager Keith Weston on Nov 20: ``Site
Down For a bit... Glenn, I’m having to move my web server and as a
result the podcast feed will not update for a few days, perhaps a week
or two if things go badly. I hope to have things back up and running
soon. Keith``

OK. That should not affect the RMRC podcast,
http://www.worldofradio.com/audiomid.html
or you can always pull the latest WOR direct from my website (Glenn)

** U S A. 7490-, Nov 20 at 2302, WBCQ S9+10/20 with `Uncle Bill`s
Melting Pot`, good music from Moldóva which he mispronounces Móldova
per an internet lookup (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6935 AM, Nov 20 at 2245, JBA carrier is only sign of
pirate activity, but nothing reported at hfunderground among several
unIDs now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6956/6957, Nov 20 at 2246, SSTV from some pirate? But
sounds too repetitious, ute? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9367.938, Nov 20 at 2242, S9/+10 rough carrier with
humwhine, like some kind of broadcast spur, but can`t relate to any
nearby source, nor is there any plus/minus matcher (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 5990, Nov 20 at 0002, open carrier; 0003 extremely distorted
music starts, // clear 11760 RHC Spanish. 5990 is supposed to be
relaying CRI in Spanish. 6000 RHC not yet on. At least they are not
mixing both CRI and RHC on 5990 this time. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 8960, Nov 20 at 0735, JBA talk on R75, only
with Preamps at full level 2: i.e. receiver overload of 7570 WRMI
TOMBS plus local 1390 KCRC Enid. Not that anyone else could hear this,
but pointing out as an example of SW afar mixing with MW anear to make
a mystery (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Nov 20 at 0730, JBA carrier of SIBC is only
broadcast trace just above 5 MHz, Cubans still gone and no Vanuatu
5040 nor Aussies audible on 5035, 5045 or 5055 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TIBET [and non]. 4820, 4905, 4920, Nov 20 at 0007 JBA carriers,
matching as all from PBS Xizang, Lhasa, occupied by the ChiCom. Same
deal as the four 4 MHz frequencies correlating with Xinjiang, Urumqi,
standard denunciation, which are also again audible, graylinish.
Additionally one on 4800 which would be the Golmud 916 site, i.e.
almost-Tibet. Another one on 5025 leads instead to R. Quillabamba,
Perú, while Cubans remain absent from 5025 and 5040 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Nov 19 at 2305, VOT English is very strong
into UTwente, but suppressed by open carrier making fast SAH, yet
CCCCCCI modulation not heard until about 2309 from PBS Xinjiang,
Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uighurs and other Moslems. Too annoying at UTwente, likewise sometime
after 0000 Nov 20 recheck when it`s now bothering The Mighty KBC`s
weekly bihour via Nauen, GERMANY. Not compared this week but
fortunately little if any of the CCCCCCI reaches North America, east
or deep (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2165 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
November 19 starting at 2044 UT on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO,
S9+20 by groundwave into nearby Warrenton SDR; immediately following
`Amateur Radio Newsline`. First I checked direct at 2024, and found a
JBA carrier amid the S9+10 local high noise level. It`s wintry
residual daytime skywave tnx the lowering solar angle, might have been
audible 675 km/420 miles away without the LHNL.

Also confirmed Sat Nov 19 at 2030 on WRN North America webcast. NOT
confirmed on WRMI 15770 at same time, no matter what their
self-contradictory skedgrid may show; rather gospel huxter for months,
ex-1930 in DST/A22 season.

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 20 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S6/S7 into
Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 20 from 0429.5 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, S9+22 into nearby SDR. Next:

Too late for this week, but Wolfgang Bueschel reports hearing WOR at a
new time on WRMI: Friday Nov 18 at 0830 on 5010; however the skedgrid
dated Nov 18 shows 5850 & 7780 instead at 0830 Friday, unchecked yet
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9329.841, Nov 20 at 0737, WBCQ WLCR, S9+10 in Spanish, no
mix with Cuban Spy Numbers on Sunday; further off-frequency than
usual. Why don`t hi-tech hi-power SW transmitters come with a
fine-tuning control? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, Nov 20 at 0743, WRMI with a wacky drama, S9+20,
eventually mentions SMTV. First time I`ve ever heard anything the
least bit ``entertaining`` from SMTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WTWW: More info from the POV of George McClintock, president
of Leap of Faith, early UT November 20: A third party is now claiming
to own LOF, Inc. This can only be a piece of paper, as LOF is now only
a shell corporation according to the TN Secretary of State. George
says his name is on the deed of the land. The transmitters are owned
by another corporation which has his name on it. The FCC license
cannot be transferred without his signature. Like I remarked earlier,
a power struggle. He says, only for the name of the corporation with
the State of Tennessee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, Nov 20 at 0731, JBA carrier from RV, 2 X 3945, but
not making it on 3 X = 11835 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 13830 // 15565, Nov 20 at 1538, S9+10 both the strongest
extracontinental signals on their bands, talk in listed Somali from
VR. Another example of VG opposite coverage from SMG site. Is their
antenna hooked up backwards? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 325 MCW kHz, Nov 20 at 0805 UT, single-letter beacon Q,
as I am falling asleep. Don`t hear any other letter nor dash but got
to be defective for a 2- or 3-letter call. RNA Signals shows these
here or near with a Q in them:
325, YJQ, Bella Bella BC - Campbell Island - I never hear BeaCons;
326, YQK, Kenora ON, 200 watts
326, VQ, Norman Wells NT; I never hear NT either; 1000 watts per
dxinfocentre.com while YJQ is 50 and YQK not listed (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
