Glenn Hauser logs June 24-25-26, 2023  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 27 2023

Hauser
** CANADA. 346 MCW kHz, June 26 at 0626 UT, dash and YXL, 500 watt ND
beacon at Sioux Lookout, Ontario is JBA vs horrible summer storm and
line noise levels; and so is 332 MCW kHz, QT, 1000 watts at Thunder
Bay (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. 6070, June 26 at 0535, S9+10 of dead air from
CFRX; and so is 6185 XEPPM at S9+19/20 -- the only SW stations left in
Mexico & Canada self-silenced; unusual for CFRX (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CHILE. 28428 USB, June 26 at 2141, CA2YWW calling CQDX repeatedly
with clear fonetix. He`s JBA and the OSOB, not even beacons, except
for some digistsuff near the low edge.
CA2YWW Chile flag Chile, WhatsApp +56 9 9920 4564, Jose Rafael "Rafa"
Reyes Arancibia, Calle Onel 620, comuna de CALLE LARGA REGION DE
VALPARAISO, Chile, per QRZ.com where he also illustrates some of his
colorful QSLs.

Then I check longer bands: no activity on 12 or 14 mb, a few on 16 mb;
20 mb unchecked but FYI anything below 14286 kHz = 21 meters (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 17560, June 26 at 0013, two CNR1 jammers with echo, per EiBi
vs VOA Mandarin via Philippines this hour only. S4/S6 the SSOB by far,
virtually the OSOB with little else on 16m (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 10125 CW, June 26 at 0026, HK3QQ with usual slow letters
in keyboard order except for errors, as I usually log much later
including tonight again at 0511 when stronger. Does this run 24 hours;
and why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, June 26 at 0008, RHC Spanish news at S9,
morning/afternoon frequency still running, not turned off at 2030
after French? or maybe Sunday Esperanto to 2100? // also now: weaker
15230, stronger 11760; 11850 suptorted as usual, and 9535. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, June 26 at 0502, RHC English JBM at S5/S9 on 2 x 6000
where it`s much stronger and undermodulated. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, June 26 at 0505, RHC Spanish still on at S9+20. Aoki
says -0400; EiBi says -0500 and irr. English for two more hours, as I
have often reported; but no extras heard after 0600 tonight.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, June 26 at 1436, RHC is S9 but JBM, while 15140 is
S8/9+10 with sufficient modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, June 25 at 2150, R. Cairo, S9+45 into UTwente,
modulating English but with big hum, not off the air; something`s
egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 6185, June 26 at 0536, S9+10/20 of dead air from
XEPPM; and so is 6070 CFRX at S9+10, the only SW stations left in
Canada & Mexico self-silenced, but not unusual for XEPPM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 9550 // 11620, UT Mon June 26 at 0021, RRI
English starting Romanian LL, good on both. Was checking 9550 for R.
Boa Vontade, Brasil, which others report but I never hear; despite
``24h`` per Aoki & EiBi, not even a het as EiBi says 9550.1; and not
``Ventade`` as in Aoki. I think RBV must be on limited daytime-only
sked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11735-11740-11745, June 26 at 0504 harsher-sounding DRM
noise, S7/S9. Scheduled 0500-0530 only is RRI Galbeni in French to
France (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9670, June 26 at 0022, music S3/S5, sounds
same as TOMBS on 7570 WRMI; as Channel 292, GERMANY, fills much time
with that tho not specified as such on sked which shows only a few
weekly blox of other purchased program time:
https://www.channel292.de/schedule-9670-khz/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday June 26 after 2200, token English from SNR, VG
direct and almost as good off the back of 15520 ME beam; 17715 for SAm
a poor third, and can`t tell if 11670 be on or not. Today`s feature
after the news discusses ``LGBT`` rights in Spain, just those four? Of
course the rightwing is against them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 25 at 2200, NO signal from VOT English into
UTwente, nor for several more minutes: but on at 2228 recheck,
S9+45/35. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Confirmed not off
the air June 26 at 2200, fair direct but SPAIN is much stronger and
easier to understand (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UQKOGBANI [non]. 12095, June 26 at 0455, BBCWS sufficiently good
with news; 0459 SAH flutter for a few sex by overlapping site change,
then somewhat weaker. Aoki shows Oman to Vatican at 0500 but I don`t
think so, rather as in EiBi and HFCC, MADAGASCAR, to Vatican. Talata
at 315 degrees across Africa carries on nicely USward, despite BBC`s
best efforts to deprive us of SW service. After 0500 also // 11810
which is MAD too but 265 degrees so weaker. Would you believe that
JORDAN is still pretending in HFCC to be on SW 11810 with 500 kW from
0500? Other imaginary `AKA` entries there on 6105, 7155, 9830, 11995,
15435. Why does HFCC put up with stuff like this? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2196 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
June 24 from 2230:30, on WRMI 15770, S7/S9 into UTwente; at 2241 check
S5/S7 into Maryland SDR, best S9+5/10 into Missouri SDR, but sounds
undermodulated everywhere. 7730 still off the air and missed checking
// 5850: did anyone hear that? [15770 WTFK originally omitted]

Also confirmed Sunday June 25 after 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia,
1323 kHz, S9+10/15 into nearby SDR.

NOT confirmed Sunday June 25 at 2130 on WRMI 15770: this new airing
has already been replaced by something else at 21-22.

Confirmed UT Monday June 26 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, JBA direct with
noise QRM burst override for first 14 seconds.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 26 from 0301.8 on Area 51 WBCQ, 6160 -67
Hz = 6159.933, S9+20 into NH SDR; S9 direct vs S9+10 crashes by high
storm noise level; after JL gotta go almost on time. Next:

0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW
0300vUT Monday WBCQ Area 51 6160v to WSW
0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW [NEW]

Thanks this week for generous financial support from Gerald T.
Pollard, Raleigh NC, who sent a quarterly seasonal check to Glenn
Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

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

** U S A. (7490-), Sun June 25 at 2200, WBCQ webcast not with `Uncle
Bill`s Melting Pot` which has been suspended but still on the sked,
rather rerun of Feb rerun of `AAAWWW` of UT Sat June 24 at 0000.
Fillers of earlier UBMPs would be preferable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, June 26 at 0024, KVOH not off the air yet, during its
one airing of `AWR Wavescan` at 0000 UT Mondays, only S5/S8 now. Still
on with gospel music at 0509, now S9+20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265, June 26 at 0507, WINB with S9/+10 of JBM music, sounds
same as WRMIs 9395 & 9955, i.e. TOMBS as sked on all, 0502-0658 on
WINB: but sked dated June 4 is labeled EST with 5-hour difference to
UT; so is one of them wrong, really EDT? But at least WINB carrier is
hardly wobbling at all now! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2196 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
June 24 from 2230:30, S7/S9 into UTwente; at 2241 check S5/S7 into
Maryland SDR, best S9+5/10 into Missouri SDR, but sounds
undermodulated everywhere. 7730 still off the air and missed checking
// 5850: did anyone hear that?

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 25 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/9+10 into
Louisiana SDR with perpetual noise blast QRM for first 14 seconds and
bits later.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 25 new 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20
direct.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 25 from 0329 the 0315v on WA0RCR, 1860
AM, S9+10/15 including very heavy local storm noise into nearby
Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed Sunday June 25 at 1330 on WRMI 9955, S5/S9 direct, no
jamming audible. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

** U S A. 15150, Sunday June 25 at 0632, gospel huxter at S9+20/30 as
WMLK continues active overnight; presumably was silent for UT
Sabbathday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 11815, Sunday June 25 at 0636, S4/S6, unOrthodox RCC-style
Slavic chanting. It`s VR`s Sunday-only liturgy in Ukrainian at
0605-0700 per EiBi. Otherwise on 11815 we would expect Brasil or
Japan, but not Turkey this season. Also, RTI & CNR1 jamming. Brasil
might be 24h but the others avoid the Vatican hour (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS UPDATE June 24
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** CHINA [non]. 9580, June 24 at 0247 CRI relay S9+20/30 but
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Unseems Std
Chinese to me, Cantonese? No, Mandarin sked this hour, Cantonese at
04-05 on 9790 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, June 24 at 0642, steady S9 of dead air in English:
obviously the extra RHC frequency tonight instead of 11760 or 9700.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also CHINA
[non], ROMANIA [and non]

** GERMANY. 9670, June 24 at 0248, pop music S7/S9, presumably Channel
292 as nothing else is listed and it plays a lot of fill music between
specific paid programming; better than usual for only 10 kW. Website
has a day-by-day program grid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, June 24 at 0648, S7 signal but JBM on
signature offset of Voice of Nigeria. Often totally absent so a
marginal improvement; while neighbor 7260 Vanuatu continues to be
outstanding and reliable, for now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. DTV bandscan of 6 thru 36, June 24 at 1535 UT finds BAD
signals on RF: 11, 14, 17!, 20, 22, 26, 28, 34. All are normally
``open`` except 17, where Enid`s only local signal resides, such as it
is, K17JN-D with 3ABN channels: either it`s off again or more likely
degraded by DX QRM from 1000 kW KTEN ``10`` Ada, not far off the aim
of antenna toward OKC. By 1645, K17JN-D is restored.

11 is also unusual. FCC TV Query shows there are no lo-power 11s in OK
or KS, just KTWU Topeka, KSNG Garden City, KOED Tulsa and KSWO Lawton.
All except KSWO ``7`` have retained their original analog channels.
Most of the other bad signals correlate with Tulsa market, per
rabbitears.info; and APRS tropo map shows a connexion between Enid and
Tulsa, also closest, so assume 11 be KOED, the OETA station. 14 is
probably the new home of KTUL ``8``, which IIRC recently moved from RF
10. The only other VHF left in Tulsa is RF 12 of KGEB ``53`` which I
have seldom if ever? logged; 21.5 kW ERP while KOED has ERP of 47 kW.
My erstwhile Zenith set-top-box -- axually set-beside-box, DTV
converter/tuner, is showing signs of ageing, and maybe imminent
demise, as it`s no longer instant-on from redeye to blueeye, rather
takes several seconds to boot up. I much rather use it for DXing than
HD tuners built in to screens, so it`s obvious which real channels I
am tuning. The HDTV sets are too `smart` for their own good (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 11780, June 24 at 0249, RRI already wrapping up
Spanish hour before some outro music, VG with no QRM from RNA Brasil
which is obviously off, deliberately? tho supposedly sked until 0300;
and RRI // 9700 slightly lowerly modulated -- and no QubaRM there
either; RHC sometimes on 9700 ex-6165 in English (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
** TURKEY. 11785.008, Sat June 24 after 2200, VOT English not off the
air today, VG S9+40/50 into UTwente; 2212 some nice harmonious music
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2196 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday June 24 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+10/30 direct but noisy.

Also confirmed Saturday June 24 at 1600 on WRN North America
webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday June 24 promptly at 1930 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, VG steady S9+25 into nearby SDR and no storm crashes. Next:

2230 UT Saturday WRMI 5850 to NW
2230 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE [& 7730? Has been off air again]

Saturday, June 24 2023

Hauser
** CUBA. 11760, June 23 at 0658, S9+20 with squeal, extraneous RHC
English frequency instead of 11670 or 9700; 0700 re-opening ``second
hour``, as I QRT, so unknown for how much longer. Unlike in Spanish,
RHC never announces any frequencies in English: maybe they know
whatever they say would not mesh with reality. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, June 23 at 2152, R. Cairo, English, is not off the
air today, huge S9+30/40 signal into UTwente with signature -5 Hz
offset, modulation sufficient level, but very distorted, worse during
music. Speech more or less readable, but repulsive also with hum.
Something`s always egregious in Egypt; ``no god but Allah`` at 2155 on
this Fribbath, violating Separation of Mosque and State -- and Egypt
is not even proclaimed an ``Islamic Republic``. Officially it`s the
Arab Republic of Egypt, which is bad enough, sticking it to non-Arab
minorities (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Possibility of some sporadic E DX, June 23 at
1900 UT, so a quick check in the car. Instead some area tropo
inbringing stations not normally heard:

97.3 at 1903 UT, ``Q97, 97.3`` and country. Punxuation is everything
at WTFDA FM DB. No likely hits on branding as Q97 or Q-97, but instead
Q 97; announcer should be required to utter it, ``Q space 97``:

KKJQ 97.3 GARDEN CITY KS COUNTRY Q 97 FM 100.0 244.0 37-46-48
100-27-36 2B62 KKJQ THE DAWG - 317 km/197 stmi

By 1904, 97.3 is captured by an equally strong signal with RCC call-in
about Fatima, whether other Christian subsets have different Bibles -
yes. I bet it`s an EWTN station; yes, and only 1/100 the power of Q
97:

KKNG-FM 97.3 BLANCHARD OK RELIGIOUS TEACHING 1.0 244.0 35-10-38
97-36-10 2BC0 Visit us at WWW.OKCR.ORG --- that`s Oklahoma Catholic
Radio, this frequency listed as for OKC. Blanchard is SW of OKC
between Norman and Chickasha, and doubt it serves the NE side very
well. They have several other stations, including the imaginary? one
on 104.9 at Ringwood west of Enid. Never mind what the call letters
be. Program sked shows this hour is indeed `EWTN Open Line`, but maybe
not a 100% EWTN outlet. 141 km/88 stmi

Note that some of my recent FMDX reports under USA have included some
Oklahoma items without being cross-referenced (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Friday June 23 at 2208, token English from SNR, VG
S9+10/25 into Maryland SDR, also much weaker 17715, 15520, 11670:
interview with a woman bass player from Tenerife Symphony about the
malady dystonia: ``Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder
characterized by involuntary (unintended) muscle contractions that
cause slow repetitive movements or abnormal postures that can
sometimes be painful.`` A malady which can be quite a problem for
professional musicians, and needs to be recognized as a condition
worthy of treatment, disability compensation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 23 from 2158, VOT English VG S9+50/55, and
even VG modulation today into UTwente. After listening to SPAIN,
tune-in at 2229, about how to avoid weight-gain. It`s `Feeling
Supreme/The Healing Spring``, diet and lifestyle recommendations.
2235, two-minute multilingual ID filler reel. 2237, jazz song in
Turkish - now modulation not so clear. More like a torch song; I`d
love to know the lyrix. 2241 ``Always by your side`` promo, `Did You
Know That?`, most valuable collexion of 16,000 Chinese pieces, Topkapi
palace, I don`t understand at first as the badaccentedess pronounces
it ``pah-LAHSS``: ``The Topkapı Palace, or the Seraglio, is a large
museum and library in the east of the Fatih district of Istanbul in
Turkey. From the 1460s to the completion of Dolmabahçe Palace in 1856,
it served as the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire, and was
the main residence of its sultans. Wikipedia, Address: Cankurtaran,
34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Türkiye``. 2246 distorted song. 2250 `Every hour
of the day TRT is with you`` promo; really? Not by me. 2253 canned
s/off by the twisted-tonguess; a bit of IS to plugpull at 2255.6*, so
no extra German today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2196 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Friday June 23 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, poor and noisy S5/S9
direct; at 1457 very poor S5/S7 into Bonaire SDR where it`s supposedly
aimed; better into Maryland SDR, S5/S7 but less noisy. No jamming
audible at any.

Also confirmed Friday June 23 at 2052, the 2030 on IRRS SW via AM
Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+5/20 into nearby SDR with storm crackles. 2059
extraneous filler, 2059.5 IRRS ``sign-off until 9 pm CET tomorrow``,
2100 keeps right on going with `Feature Story News` for several more
minutes. Maybe at Villa Estense they do not understand English about
what a sign-off is? Over usual lite musical CCI from presumed Smooth
Radio, Brighton, UQKOGBANI. Smooth is closing several MW outlets but
apparently not yet this one. Next:

** U S A. 6160 -67 Hz = 6159.933 // 7490 -67 Hz = 7489.933, what an
offset coincidence? 0000 UT Sat June 24, both sufficient into Maryland
SDR but noisier on 6; no signals on 5130v or 3265v, WBCQ with
`AAAWWW`. Is it new? Not a twit from Allan today. It`s sounding
familiar beyond Angela`s mike check; he prompts her and then keeps
talking, himself. Starts with a call for two engineers with
high-power experience like with analog UHF TV. Using a 1948 Gates
yard-wide console. Super-stition is a ``digital controlled
nightmare``. Northern Maine: you either love it or hate it``. This is
sounding very familiar, a rerun? There was no announcement as such at
the start. I stop listening closely. 0025 says on 7490, 6160 and 5130
--- NOT on 5. And does not give YOOLF date. Later discusses strange
clutches on Model Ts. 60 Hz vs 50 Hz turntables in America vs Britain
impact music pitches -- another item I`ve heard before. Etc., etc.
0035, World Radio Day was this past Monday, February 13 : that does
it. So it`s four months later and still trying to hire engineers?
Maybe the smart ones don`t want to aid and abet World`s Last Chance

** U S A. 9275, Friday June 23 at 1706 tune-in via Maryland remote,
WMLK amateur hymn singing with piano, cuts off air in a few seconds;
*1707 back on at S5/S7. 1714* cuts off again, *1715 still singing,
while a gospel huxter is speaking on the ``Live Radio`` player on
website. Recheck at 2055, trace of 9275 to UTwente, and definitely
into Missouri SDR. The 17-22 UT transmission is often absent in part
or in whole? I did not check 15150 last night, but others were hearing
it well beyond North America. Nothing found about 15150 at
wmlkradio.com; the `Schedule` link goes nowhere, but there is this
about `Engineer`:

``Deacon Gary McAvin --- With academic training (and degrees) in
electrical, electronics, engineering, legal assistance, OSB (Obadiah
School of the Bible), and criminal justice, Deacon Gary McAvin
embraced a wide range of disciplines while undertaking his scholarly
pursuits. Garnering accolades (three honors societies) and recognition
for his academic achievements in the classroom and for exhibiting
leadership qualities, personal integrity, and moral character. Deacon
McAvin has extensive training in the electrical, electronics &
engineering disciplines. These academic fields are necessary for the
work which he is now involved in.

Currently, Deacon Gary McAvin works for the Assemblies of Yahweh, home
of the international broadcasting station WMLK Radio. Deacon McAvin is
the Shortwave Radio Station Manager and Broadcast Engineer. This
station is located in Bethel, Pennsylvania. In this position, he has
played a major role in installing and rebuilding the original
50-kilowatt (kW) shortwave transmitter. Deacon McAvin later replaced
it with a 250 kW BBC unit imported from Europe, which he reconstructed
and is now in the process of restoring this unit to its original
configuration.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Finally another sporadic E FM DX opening, June 22; since
