Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Oct 28 at 1753, no signal yet from
LRA36 as I break for lunch, but it`s on by 1821; 1900 song ``Argentina
Blanco``, surely not implying that Arg. be masculine? 1905 ID, contact
info, 1913 about LRA36. It`s S6/S7 into Bs. As. remote, sufficient.
Still going at 2117. And 2200 also via Mendoza, while Bs As is totally
blocked intermittently by wideband QRM bursts, on H2Ofall seemingly
emanating from about 7.1 MHz, i.e. a nearby ham. Still on at 2228.
2257 about ham radio: I think she says the ham station at the base
uses the same rhombic antenna as LRA36, worked 70 countries including
FT8 mode. 2301 contact info including huge whatsapp number uttered
once. 2302 outro ham segment with Morse code. Song and 2305 long Morse
code starting with LRA36 ID. 2306 canned *sign-on*, ``a partir de este
momento,`` multilingual RNASG IDs, and scripted recitation, ``El valor
del miedo``. 2311 re-starting a new edition of `Uniendo Voces`, but I
bet they chop off long before another 5 hours have passed. Weather
conditions, but slurred and I can`t understand the temp. 54th
anniversary of Base Marambio is coming up. 2340 still going (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non?]. 11499.978, Oct 28 at 1616, UTwente synchs on a
signal here, which must be Sound of Hope or CNR1 jamming (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5025, Sat Oct 28 at 0643, R. Rebelde is gone again;
something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.

5010, WRMI is on, but often not this late: per grid it`s after 0400
only on Sat & Sun with TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non?]. 11760, Sat Oct 28 at 1534, no signal from RHC, but
pops on at *1535 in Spanish. Should be // 15140 where there is
something weak but unseems the same. Aoki & EiBi show nothing else on
15140 except: 16-17 RFA Uighur via Tinian and CNR1 jamming.

We should keep in mind that 15140 = 2 x 7570 whenever that WRMI be on
but it hardly ever harmonicizes. Hmmm, skedgrid shows WRMI-11 on 7570
until 1500 but Saturdays until 1600 with TOMBS. 7570 itself unchecked
now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Oct 28 at 2124, no signal from R. Cairo into
UTwente, nor just before 2200 but a tone presumably BBC warming up to
be unimpeded. Something`s amiss at Abis.

HFCC B23 shows 9440 continuing for another season in English at
2115-2245, however imaginary that may often be - and the others look
familiar too:
https://new.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B23&broadc=ERU
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 11655, Oct 28 at 1533, S Asian talk, S7/S9, listed as NHK in
Hindi from Yamata until 1550 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11545, Oct 28 at 1531, weak talk, stronger than
only other carriers below 11600, which are 11530 and 11575. EiBi has
nothing on 11545, but Aoki shows Dengê Gel until 1600 via Uzbekistan.
I haven`t tried for this much lately, due to jumparounds vs Recep the
Turkish jammer, often hard to tell which if not on same frequency.

11530, Oct 28 at same time 1531, JBA carrier. EiBi shows this as Dengê
Gel rather than 11545. One or the other likely to be jammer right now
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 11575.000, Oct 28 at 1617, something exactly on-frequency
at UTwente, listed as R. Ashna, USAGM service for Afghanistan (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 11879.96 approx., Sat Oct 28 at 1537, off-frequency talk
at S4/S5 vs local noise level S7/S8. TWR in Somali only on weekends
extended 1530-1545. Likely longpath (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Oct 28 at 2158, VOT is not off the air unlike
yesterday, IS running, VG S9+50 into UTwente and good modulation too.
After news, 2212 choral anthem, national? but cut short for promo at
2213 about ``Happy 100th anniversary of the Turkish Republic`` and
`The Captain`s Log`, told in first person as if announcer himself
wrote it, about how wonderful a city is İstanbul. 2220 multi-lingual
ID filler reel. 2222 song -- these musical breaks are never identified
and I don`t always mention them. 2227 `Gripping Piles` repeat on the
gig economy. 2230 another Happy-100th promo. 2235 always-by-your-side
promo. 2239 `Geomarked [sic] Products` on lace from Sparta? 2242
with-you-every-hour promo. 2250 Happy-100th again. 2251 s/off. 2252 IS
playing for a decent interval until off at 2255.6* (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U A E. 12095, Oct 28 at 1540, no signal yet, but from Oct 29 with
B23, Encompass will transmit the WRN Russian service via Dhabayya at
1500-1700, including Prague, own programs including Panorama DX
program Sats at 1530; 1600 Japan, 1630 Slovakia, as Panorama reported
last week via Alex Miatlikov from Ukraine to the WOR iog. This is a
busy channel, pioneered by BBC which still partly uses it via various
sites, but also FEBC, with an A23 gap 1400/1800 sometimes occupied by
R. Delta Int`l, Netherlands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2214 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday October 28 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S6/S8 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday October 28 at 1600 on WRN N America webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday October 28 at 1630 on WRMI 15770, VP S7/S8
into UTwente, European target area; better into PEI SDR, S7/S9 but
much better S9+27 VG into superior Maine SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday October 28 from 1928 UT on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, VG S9+18 into nearby SDR.

Also confirmed Saturday October 28 at 1930 on WRN North America
stream; and on WRMI webcast-only. Next:

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 28 at
0514-0531 on the NRD-545 with E/W longwire: this time I laboriously
punch each of almost all 9/kHz channels minus one in USB. I started
downwards from 855, then upwards from there but here put in order:
603, 612, 621, 639, *684, 702, 711, 747-2, 774-2, 801-2, 837, *855-2;
864, 882, 891, 936-2, 963, 999, 1017, 1044, 1098, 1107-2, 1125,
1152-2, 1296, 1305-2, 1314, 1413, 1422. *strongest, likely both Spain
and many of the others. -2 = at least two carriers beating.

Above 1422, I hit only two anomalies, off-frequency approx. 1467.3 and
1565.13. Mwoffsets has Iran on 1467.39, but nothing that far below
1566. These could be local receiver birdies; or spurs from US
station(s). If matching from one station it would be exactly halfway
between them: 1516.215 = very unlikely as nothing there. Does anyone
else get carriers on those? Could also be Latin American variants
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

New House Speaker Thinks Creationist Museum Is 'Pointing People To The
Truth'

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9955, Fri Oct 27 at 1457-1459.5, multilingual RAE
IDs repeating over and over, filling out the French relay via WRMI
sked M-F at 1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Oct 27 at 2200, token English from SNR for last
time until March 25 (?) at this hour and frequency: from Oct 30 will
be at 2300 on 9690 for us. Feature to follow the news today about some
festival. Altho metering S9+10/20 direct, lots of fading and noise
make it suboptimal for further escuching. 15520 even worse but still
mejor than 17715 or 11670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Oct 27 at 2200 and several later chex both
direct and via UTwente: no signal in English to us, nor on possible
mistaken 9875. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2213 monitoring: ``From: Richard

WORLD OF RADIO 2214 monitoring: Confirmed Friday October 27 at 2030 on
IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, fair into Parma SDR and can hear no
CCI = co-channel interference. From next week this should be at 2130.

Confirmed first SWBC, Friday October 27 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20
direct but noisy; bit of music intruded between ID and my start.
S8/9+5 into Bonaire SDR at 2225, noisy but maybe not jamming. Next:

** U S A. 7490 -73 Hz = 7489.927, UT Sat Oct 28 at 0000, WBCQ with
`AAAWWW`, S9+10/30 into Maryland SDR, whole hour or at least start,
spotchex and ending are all about AM Radio, how great it is and
whether it has a future; including ``fancy AM`` = SW. 0010 had to play
some related? music which came over rather distorted. Also on 5130+
pre-empting T****, but still something else on 6160-, and no signal on
3265+. Major news from elsewhere in Maine, was it mentioned? Anyhow we
learnt that the rather small city of Lewiston is nevertheless second
only to Portland in size. Places like Augusta, Bangor, Kennebunkport
are even smaller. So I`m curious how Monticello ranx by population in
Maine? Convenient Maine Demographics website has an exhaustive
ranking: Monticello is #326 with a pop. of only 733. Does that include
A&A who are in Florida much of the time like now? As usual runs over
at least a minute into Hal Turner time on 7490 by 0101, but I notice
that did not happen on 5130+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 27 at
0332-0340 UT on the R75 with E/W loop: 531, 576, 612*, 684*, 711, 774,
855, 891, 909, 999, 1044, 1098-2, 1107-3, 1125, 1305-2, 1413, 1449,
1611 kHz. *strongest; -3 more than two carriers beating.

Per mwlist, nothing significant in Europe on 1449, but 200 kW from
Jeddah, Sa`udi Arabia; or less likely 400 kW from Iran (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 24546-24650, Oct 27 at 1513, CODAR swirshing, which?
Maybe eventually would fire Morse IDs. I`m bandscanning 22-27 MHz, and
find nothing more interesting than this below 24990 - no CW utes or
phones anywhere, no broadcast harmonix tho MUF is 28+ MHz with CB
crammed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 26585, Oct 27 at 1515, Spanish 2-way atop in pileup of
AM hets, just like in proper CB. Nothing else below 26965. Above CB,
USB Spanish on 27505, 27655, nothing higher (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Oct 26 at 0508, another try to detect R.
Kiribati into Oahu SDR: nothing audible or visible on the H2Ofall, but
SAM claims to lock on to an 846 varying plus/minus 4 Hz. Could it
really be on but very QRP? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2214)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 26 at 0225 UT,
on the E/W longwire into NRD-545: Tnx to Canadians Richard Langley and
Peter Laws for leading me to the manual instruxions on 9/10 kHz but it
is too complicated to change its tuning steps, unlike simply on the
R75, so this is not a thorough bandscan, rather picking several likely
frequencies to punch individually 1 kHz below in USB to hear a 1 kHz
het = carrier; not in the order tuned over the next few minutes:

531-2, 576-2, 595**, 621, 639-2, 684, 711-NOT, 774, 801, 855-2, 882,
891, 999, 1107-2, 1305-2, 1422, 1539. Likely mostly Algeria, Spain.

**595 rather than 594 strongly implies the off-frequency SNRT Oujda,
MOROCCO, 50 kW per mwlist, altho supposedly off air at 01-04.

Later at 0320-0328 UT Oct 26 on the R75 with E/W Wellbrook loop: 531,
549*, 576-2, 639, 657, 684*, 693, 702, 711-NOT, 738, 747, 774-2, 837,
855*, 882, 891, 963!=3 kHz from 960 local, 999, 1026, 1044, 1089,
1107-3, 1116, 1125, 1296, 1413, 1476, 1512; 1710=TIS or pirate?
*strongest. -3 = more than 2 carriers beating.

963! most likely would be 100 kW from Tunisia per mwlist. There are
also 50 kW or more on Cyprus, Iran, Sudan, Mozambique; nothing
significant in Europe. DXers in the Atlantic Northeast were getting
plenty of TA modulation on MW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2214)

** CHINA. 7410, Oct 25 at 1523, JBA pop music, S9/+10; 1527 maybe
Chinese talk, continues 1530+. EiBi and Aoki show CRI Japanese via
Jinhua 831 site. Also on 7410 at this hour, Iran in Arabic via Zahedan
site. I`m checking whether anything still audible on 7 MHz band this
late. 1523 UT = 0851 LMT, and today`s Enid sunrise was 1248 UT, some
2.5 hours earlier. No sign of RNZP on 7440 now, to be 7390 from Oct
29. Not quite the OSOB: see 7300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7300, Oct 25 at 1525, JBA music and talk at S4/S6, past
1530+. Aoki & EiBi show both in Mandarin, R. Taiwan Int`l and CNR1,
i.e. jamming. Only broadcast signal still audible this late on 7 MHz
band except 7410, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 11985, Oct 25 at 1516, humroar obscuring
talk and wobbling frequency, S6/S7. Scheduled is RFA Korean via SAIPAN
at 15-19, per Aoki & EiBi, neither shown as jammed as this seems to be
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 15520, Wed Oct 25 at 2200, token English from SNR is
slightly better here off the back to ME, S9+20/30 vs 17855 direct to N
America, S9+10/20. Begins with Amy Egan giving the new sked for
``winter`` from Oct 29, broadly but no details about English, who
cares? which will surely become M/W/F only at 2300-2330. Notably she
cites the African frequency as 17755, rather than 17775 which has been
widely publicized by AER sourced to REE itself; which is wrong? HFCC
agrees it`s 17755. It also includes a number of frequencies which are
never mentioned, must be alternates but not labeled as such woodenly:
21620, 15500, 15390, 15110, 11940. The ``new`` HFCC website is now
intercepted by a warning as certificate has expired as of today:

2203 news; following feature is interview about the first private
rocket launch from Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN. 9685, Oct 25 at 1520, choral harmony, gospel? S3/S6. No,
Aoki shows Nippon no Kaze in Korean via Paochung at 1500-1559 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, Oct 25 at 2200, VOT not off the air today.
Something`s not always erroneous at Emirler; VG S9+20/30 direct. After
news, 2209 `Review of the Turkish Press`, something about UN Day. 2211
new promo marking the 100th anniversary of the Turkish Republic, which
will be Oct 29. 2212 `Whipping Piles` about the gig economy for jobs.
2240 outro `Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring`, something about
honey. 2250 100th anniversary promo again; after s/off, 6 notes of IS
to chopoff at 2255*, no finesse, thus fails to emit any extra German
at 2300 from feed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9440, Oct 25 at 0628, French S7/S9 until 0629*; back on
a few seconds later slightly weaker S5/S8 at *0629.4 in unID language.
Per EiBi this is BBC in French via VATICAN, then Hausa via ASCENSION.
There is another of the latter preceding at 0529-0600. I can never
recognize Hausa; are there any keywords like in IDs or other clues we
can use? I don`t know if they axually utter this, but ``this is the
BBC`` per Google translate becomes: ``wannan shine BBC" (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2213 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: confirming WOR #2213, WRMI, 9395 kHz:
0030 (55343), S9 signal, confirmed; 2330 (45343), S7, S8 signal, 2359,
[both] October 24 UTC 2023 [Tues]. 73’s, Richard, October 25, 2023
12:10 am``

Confirmed Tuesday October 24 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9/+10 into UTwente
which I happen to have running, surprisingly good despite way offside
of 355 degree beam from Okeechobee.

Also confirmed Wednesday October 25 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 -73 Hz =
7489.927, S9+10/20 into Maryland SDR. Next:

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 9475, Oct 25 at 1925, WTWW reactivated day frequency for
brief test, notified by George McClintock. It`s VG here as expected,
S9+40 with gospel music and Biermann`s IDs as ``Ancient Word Radio on
5085``, and again at 1934, cut off at 1938*. George says will
officially start tomorrow at 3-5 pm CT, then change to 5085; i.e.
20-22 UT and 22+ onwards until Oct 29 when CDT becomes CST, so
presumably UT will then be 21/23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 25 at 0653:
684, 711*strongest so WESTERN SAHARA is back on; 774, 837, 855 kHz.
The others likely SPAIN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1210 kHz, Oct 25 at 0701 UT, CBS News with audio
dropouts every second or two; figured it would be WPHT Philadelphia,
but KGYN Guymon OK is also with CBS per NRC AM Log. KGYN tends do
dominate here despite supposedly nulling toward WPHT (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6833-LSB, Oct 25 at 0637, same kind of tones we have
been hearing on 7828-USB, HF trading test from AL or IL? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2352 UT October 25
