Some loggings from Masset, BC  View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 20 2024

Good evening, everyone. I arrived in Masset last Friday for a 12 day
visit. Usually, this entails a lot of maintenance work to our 4.4 acre
ocean-front property, including on the various antennas we have here on the
property, as well as the numerous SDRs. However, I made it a priority to
also listen, including live which I did getting up before 2 AM and
listening overnight. I was most delighted to hear how very strong Radio
Vanuatu was propagating my way. So here's a sampling of what was heard
mostly overnight, including Voice of Mongolia, an old friend.
73, Walt Salmaniw Masset, BC

AUSTRALIA 6230, 1336-, VMW Jun 19 Good reception with marine forecast by
Australian English accented OM. Cochannel in AM is the presumed Sound of
Hope jammer. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

BOLIVIA 3310, 0936-, Radio Mosoj Chaski Jun 19 Fair reception with talk,
but a fair amount of summer static to make listening comfortable. Not sure
of language, but should be in Quechua. Almost all talk during the 10
minutes of monitoring. Checked some South American kiwiSDRs, and not a lot
different than my reception. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

CANADA 6218.570, 1318-, Iqaluit Coast Guard Radio Jun 19 Perhaps on the
wrong frequency, and a bit distorted. I caught the tail end of the
broadcast, including, 'This is Iqaluit Coast Guard Radio, out', and off.
Checking later, the nominal frequency is 6218.6. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

CHINA 13810, 1052-, CNR Jun 19 100% decode on this channel. // to 15760
also with perfect copy. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

JAPAN 11815, 1408-, NHK Radio Japan Jun 19 Excellent reception of the rare
English Radio Japan broadcasts, especially direct from Japan. A story
about a gay couple in Thailand. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

JAPAN 5920, 1308-, Shiokaze Jun 19 Excellent reception with their English
broadcast (weekly) and // to 5965, also very strong, but latter has weaker
cochannel Chinese station. Female announcer is a little difficult to
follow with her thick Japanese accent. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

MARSHAL ISLANDS 1098, 1057-, Radio Marshalls Jun 19 Very nice reception
with pleasant Islands music. Besides splatter from 1090, reception is
otherwise very acceptable. A good night to put my various antennas to the
test, and they all performed very well, including a new home brew 20'
vertical, and a K9AY array from Quiet Radio (David Evans) in the UK, who
confirmed that I was the first user in North America. Thanks, Dave! (who
is a worthy successor to the late Andy Ilkin of Wellbrook Communications).
I continued to listen and indeed at 11:30, a male announcer came on,
presumably with close-down announcement followed by the Marshalese National
Anthem. Open carrier remained. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

MONGOLIA 12014.873, 1259-, Voice of Mongolia Jun 19 Same buzzy transmitter
at strong level and the characteristic VOM off frequency. Japanese listed
again. I again noted a digital (RTTY or NAVTEX like) signal, this time
above the channel on 12016.5 and 12017.5, just like on 12085, so I wonder
whether there's a relationship between VOM and the digital signal?.
(Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

MONGOLIA 12084.874, 1045-, Voice of Mongolia Jun 19 Strong reception, but
modulation similar to Radio Cairo's with muddy audio and a loud transmitter
hum easily seen on multiple frequencies on the waterfall. I can recognize
that it's Japanese. Too bad, as it would produce armchair copy otherwise.
A long time since I've tuned them in! Returned at 10:58 to hear the
sign-off announcement mentioning Voice of Mongolia, and giving website.
Transmitter cut at 11:00 UTC. I'm pretty certain that this is coming off
the back of their antenna, as the azimuth of the transmitter is 116 degrees
SE towards Japan. Received well on all my antennas here in Masset.
(Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

NEW ZEALAND 6224, 1350-, ZLM Taupo Maritime Radio Jun 19 Very good
reception with machine generated marine forecast. Accent is easier to
follow compared to the Australian meteo broadcast!. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

NORTH KOREA 6140, 1055-, KCBS Jun 19 I don't know what the issue is with
the DRM from North Korea. Signal is strong on both this channel and 3205
but zero decode. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

PERU 4810, 0946-, Radio Logos Jun 19 Almost good reception if it wasn't for
the CODAR below and digital hash above the channel. Music. Improving when
rechecked at 09:59, with music continuing. Waiting for an ID at the TOH.
Might have been one but very short, so not 100% certain. Continues speaking
past 10:04. Rechecking at 10:29, the digital noise above the channel is
gone, so much easier to hear now. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

TAIWAN 6279.848, 1345-, Sound of Hope Jun 19 Characteristically off channel
and not sounding anything like CNR at good level at this time. A rarity
that there's no CNR jammer on channel and the strength of the signal. Back
and forth between rapid speaking woman and male. Presumably in Mandarin.
Found a parallel at 13:56, also on offset channel of 6214.937 with no
jammer. Equally strong. They're always listed as '1 kW', but who knows
the accuracy of that. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

USA 15150, 0507-, WMLK Jun 20 Superb reception of WMLK
preaching....presumably a historical recording of Elder Jacob O. Meyer.
Perfect modulation, unlike so many other broadcasters. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

VANUATU 7260, 0920-, Radio Vanuatu Jun 19 Excellent reception with Bislama
talk by YL about domestic violence, then local vocal music accompanied by
guitar. Signal spreads across 18 kHz. Radio Vanuatu ID at 09:29. Radio
Vanuatu, Voice of Unity at 09:31. Continues in Bislama. Drums at 09:32.
(Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

VATICAN CITY (NON) 11805, 1230-, Vatican Radio Jun 19 Tone until 12:30,
then brief modernized VR IS and into Russian program via Tinang,
Philippines. Excellent strength. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

VIETNAM 12020, 1209-, Voice of Vietnam Jun 19 Excellent strength in listed
Japanese with a YL sounding very much like a native speaker. Some digital
cochannel audible on 12017.5 and 12018.5. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

** CUBA. 5025, June 19 at 0637, S9+35/45 of dead air from R. Rebelde.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. The other side:

``The Other Face of Hunger in Cuba --- 'Hunger has two faces, but it
shows one and hides the other. Cubans today are racked by both at the
same time, subjugated by a government that deliberately starves its
own people.'
Roberto Álvarez Quiñones, Miami 18 Jun 2024 - 16:50 CEST

Yes, Castroism causes hunger with premeditation and perfidy, because
this scourge is not due to a war, or a natural catastrophe, but rather
to fact that a well-fed Raúl Castro and his rotund accomplices refuse
to liberate agriculture and restore the elemental freedoms to which
all the peoples of the world are entitled, for fear of losing the
power and dolce vita that they and their families enjoy...``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re 92.7, OKC traffic report not // 92.5 KOMA: KOMA does
have a translator on 92.9 to analogize its HD2 called The Edge, per
WTFDA: ``K225BN relays:KOMA-HD2 92.9 OKLAHOMA CITY OK USA 0.2 0.2
267.7 267.7 35-32-51 97-29-30 188C ROCK 92.9 THE EDGE 139270`` --
could the 92.9 have been off-frequency? Not necessarily right on 92.7.
Or is there any way an HD2 of 92.5 might be audible somehow on an old
non-HD analog caradio tuned to the side? And whatever became of
subcarriers? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 95.7 & 107.1, June 19 at 0139, 0346, 0430, 0519, 0627 UT
chex, Enid stations still dead air but showing static RDS of __KXLS__
and __KNID__; finally resumed modulating by 1452 check. I suspect long
delays in fixing such easy? problems are caused by no CE of their own,
rather having to call upon contract engineer from some other city;
evenmoreso the 93.9 KIMY case, with no local origination, merely a
satellite which cannot even be monitored OTA at HQ (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed June 19 at 2201, token English from SNR, now
again with cohostesses Amy Egan and Marilyn Quintana, S9+20/30 direct
and the other three detectable. It`s the tenth anniversary of
coronation of King Felipe after his disgraced father abdicated;
something about calls for dissolving the Balearic government; air
pollution is the second largest cause of death worldwide. 2209 feature
interview about babies stolen during the Franco regime (Glenn Hauser,

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 19 at 2200, VOT English not off the air,
s/on pretending to be 1230 on 17620, S8/S9 direct but insufficient vs
S5/S7 noise level. 2232 tune-in via UTwente when measured, S9+40/50 VG
during song; 2234 multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2236 song; 2240
`The Middle East and Turkey`, written by some non-Turkish-named expert
on how ME is the world`s center of energy produxion; really?! 2246
song. 2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, song which is chopped off
the air at 2252.8* before any s/off announcement or IS. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2247 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday June 19 at 1954 the 1930 on SW Gold Radio, Germany, into
UTwente: S9+15 on 6160.001, S9+10/15 on 3975.004.

Also confirmed Wednesday June 19 on WBCQ 7490 -76 Hz = 7489.924, S7/S9
into Maryland SDR, but NO signal when checked first direct, far too
low frequency in summer daytime over further path. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S;
1630 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 6160.

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated. By MO or
check in US$ on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK

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

** U S A. 5130+, June 19 at 0638, A*ATT from WBCQ is OFF again, tsk2.
Also absent into PEI SDR, June 19 at 1608, tsk3. Also no signal at
1623 into NH SDR, tsk4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, June 19 at 0645, WMLK is back on and even modulating,
but JBA S7/S8 direct. Huge variations in strength depending on
nighttime MUF fluxuations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, June 19 at 2041 UT, KLEY Wellington KS instead of
rock music, silly ballgame sportstalk, about golf, and it`s not net
but local, mentioning KLEY in passing. Format change or aberration?
Has managed to remain on air whenever checked since last outage (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
