WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST update

Hi Glenn, my latest Hitlist update.
https://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) Aggregator - World Radio Network: Updated links (Thanks to Peter
Jones in WOR iog mail list)
2) Germany - Shortwave Gold: Update details and links from former name
of "Shortwave Radio for Europe)" and added links to programme content
providers
3) Netherlands - R Classic Sunday: New addition to list, added links
for this station
4) Netherlands - R Delta Int: New addition to list, added links for
this station

Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be late
September. Best wishes and 73, Alan Roe

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 4, continued from last report of
LRA36, still running at 1714 UT via Brasil remote: mostly music, still
past 1827, 1859, but cuts off at 1907* after another song is over
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 382-MCW, Sept 5 at 0611 UT, ND beacon dash and YPL, JBA,
which is 1000 watts from Pickle Lake, Ontario.

366-MCW, Sept 5 at 0612 UT, NDB dash and YMW, 500 watts from Maniwaki,
Quebec.

362-MCW, Sept 5 at 0613 UT, NDB dash and SB, 500 watts from Greater
Sudbury, Ontario (how is that different from Lesser Sudbury?) (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000 & 6060 & 6165, Sept 5 at 0555, all three RHC English are
splattering plus/minus 10 kHz; overdriven modulation from the studio?
6060 also with its humbuzz; 6100 off, 5040 Spanish. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 5 at 1926, no signal on RHC English frequency;
again, she`s on 15370 instead, but after a few words stops modulating
tho S9 carrier stays on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 25800, Sept 5 at 1505, no signal from RFI in Swahili, into
RSA and Kuwait SDRs, despite RFI registering 11m this hour only
effective today starting what used to be the S-season. The only major
broadcaster bold enough to MUF itself up already. Instead, still JBA
on 21690. Will they really get around to QSY tomorrow? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 18119-USB, Sept 4 at 2115, JR7#TG, contacting a W9 et al.,
JBA and not sure about one of his letters, R? No such station at
qrz.com, but definitely starts with JR7, around sunrise in Japan. A
couple of other unID phonehams up the band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, UT Sun Sept 5 at 0100, The Mighty KBC
reactivated here via Nauen, GERMANY, ex-9925 summer frequency for past
quadrimonth; UT Sundays at 0000-0200 to N America, should stay on 5960
until next May. From Nov should again confront German overrun from
Turkey CCI. VG S9+10/20 but seems more fading than we had on 9925
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. An hour earlier I wasn`t hearing any, but by 0122 UT
Sun Sept 5, I have four pirates at once, and then a fifth, as they
love to run on Saturday nights, especially holiday weekend. Too much
to track them all, but this is what I get, plus later HFU uplooks:

6960-USB, Sept 5 at 0122, pirate music. Many reports here of WDOG, but
before 0119:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85947.15.html

6950-USB, Sept 5 at 0122, pirate music. Several reports here of R.
Genix, but mostly before 0100:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85952.0.html

6930-AM, Sept 5 at 0123, JBA pirate music. No reports of a 6930-AM at
HFU, but a few minutes earlier of Radio 48 on 6930-USB:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85954.0.html

6925-AM, Sept 5 at 0124, stronger than 6930, pirate music, 0125
announcement, 0126 ``This is Radio Station SSN [??? or similar]``.
Repetitive vamping music and ``Please stand by, broadcast will begin
in one minute``, but in less than a minute cuts off the air, and no
soon return. These logs say it was X-FM on 6925, which moved to
6285-USB at 0127; how did they know? ``RH`` later said that among:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85955.0.html

6935-USB, Sept 5 at 0129, this one has just come on, pirate music;
0132 a countdown, otherwise unreadable announcement; 0137 ``Radio for
You`` seems like ID and again at 0141, music. Several logs here after
0149 first as unID, then as Radio 48:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,85959.0.html

At 0142 when I quit, all these except 6925 are still going, never mind
competition from WBCQ, Mighty KBC or WTWW (Glenn Hauser,OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 7, KOCO ``5`` OKC is marginal at first but catches my
ears at 1530 UT Sunday Sept 5 as a church choir is singing showtunes!
And not a mask in sight. Turns out to be ``St Luke`s on Broadway``
live? from the major United Methodist Church in OKC, once frequented
by some of my uncles & aunts. Shortly preacher launches into long
sermon past 1600, somehow centered on Angela Lansbury. By 1610 he
mentions Jerry Orbach per captioning; I am not auditioning. 1615 back
to tune, ``Beauty & the Beast``; they also have a small instrumental
ensemble (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2102 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept
4 from 1800.5 on IRRS SW 7290 Bulgaria, S9+5/15 into UTwente; tuned in
too late to track the runup to this transmission. UTw is not hearing
918 kHz Italy relay, only music presumably Spain. But 918 is also
confirmed, Italia AM, Villa Estense, S9+25 into nearby Noale remote, a
few seconds apart from 7290.

Missed checking WA0RCR, 1860-AM, circa 1930 Sept 4; anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Sun Sept 5 from 0334 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO,
S9+20 into neighborly Warrenton SDR atop some storm crashes, a line
across the SE corner of MO extending from central OK per Blitzortung.

Once again there are no US SWBCs of WOR between 0130 UT Sat and 2230
UT Sun; stations pick the times, not me. For timely info, I strongly
suggest you try to catch one of the first two airings on WRMI, UT Fri
0130 or UT Sat 0130; or, shhh! pod- or webcast ASAP. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NE [new]
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW [NOT Sunday, was error]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

your program and enjoying both. Thank you for all the hours and hard
work going into this program every week. Ray Wraye Mid Michigan``

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank
to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 5 at 0020, theatre organ music already on
WTWW-2: but soon at 0021 a 3-minute hard-sell commercial by Ted; is he
now inserting ads in Theater Organ Under The Arch? I guess not, Bob
Heil then starts the real show at 0024 which runs unscathed until
0053. This week it`s inconvenient to listen to $ tereo webcast, so I
stay with SW which is not too distorted but totally mono (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Hepburn Tropo map shows big Level-5 blob across southern KS
into OK, and even Level-6 centred on Enid. TV bandscan Sept 5 at 1513
UT finds two decoding: RF 15, KSNW ``3`` Wichita, and RF 31, KDCU
``31`` Derby with Univision. Also BAD signals on RF: 10, 12, 20, 21,
28, 30, 34, 35; By 1607. 15 and 31 have Baddened, plux a few others,
8, 11 and 26; mostly correlating with Wichita market (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6948-AM, Sept 5 at 0535, JBA carrier S3-S6. Could it be
--- Radio 48? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat Sept 4 at 1505, LRA36 is back!
After a month away, good S5-S4 into Brasil remote with Antártida theme
song as I intune, more and more songs until 1542 ``a partir de este
momento`` as if signing-on, multilingual IDs including English just to
inform us that the broadcast is in Spanish; historical talk about
Mendoza and San Martín, subject of today`s `El Lejano Sur` program,
i.e. not about Antarctica at all, per se. 1544 Anta. song again; 1545
produxion credit for this `Wednesday` show; current? weather: low -26
C, can`t copy the high. Contact info including whatsapp, phone,
correo, etc. 1551 QRM? from some beeps and tones, V only briefly. 1556
`Nacional, la Radio Pública` ID; 1613 ID and contact info again, more
of same past 1654 Anta. song again; and still past 1714, but since
1606 I`m mainly listening to `The Score` cinemusic on KUCO, and then
the opera.

Meanwhile, I see that Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain had posted this at
1302: ``The LRA 36 team informed via whatsapp that they will be on air
today Saturday, 15476usb, at 1400 hours after they fixed the fault
they had in the station antenna`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 340-MCW kHz, Sept 4 at 0648 UT, dash and YY, no QRM from
341 EI Enid still off; 500 watts from Mont Joli, Québec, 2761 km =
1715 statute miles; far beyond Québec city on the Gaspé. Only other
Canadian, common 332 QT Thunder Bay. Also several closer
Unitedstatesians logged in this session, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 6754-USB, Sept 4 at 0244, 0247, 0254, 0307 chex, no VOLMET
signal from Trenton Military, CHR. On WOR 2102 I mention that day
frequency 15034-USB is not being heard unlike night frequency; but now
it`s gone too. It would seem that a single transmitter serve both when
operable, but EiBi, where SSB is never specified, shows a schedule
overlap: 6754 at 2310-1100, 15034 at 1010-2400. Did anyone ever hear
both of them at same time between 2310-2400, or 1010-1100? Or do those
numbers allow for irregular switchover times. Also, didn`t the
``schedule`` include regular hourly breaks like some other VOLMETS,
rather than continuous? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 11650, Sept 4 at 1428, Chinese opera? off-key singing, and
talk; scheduled this hour is CRI in Amoy via Kunming. Poor with
flutter. No CNR1 jammers heard now around 11 or 13 MHz (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 338-MCW, Sept 4 at 0649 UT, ND beacon TU, which is 30
watts from TUlsa, seldom heard and wonder if operable only
sporadically. I was tuned to 336-USB. See also CANADA and USA (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF-7, UT Sept 4 at 0433, only BAD signal from KOCO ``5``,
OKC ABC ``local``, not enough to decode via STB nor direct into Sanyo
screen; same problem yesterday. Other OKC TVs normal, mostly UHF. Must
be on reduced power unless my antenna have broken; no, by 1645 UT Sept
4, back in sufficiently, altho signal meter shows not full strength
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. Some ND beacons again audible, amid storm crashes from
Kansas, fortunately not enough of those to overlap into continuous:

293-MCW, Sept 4 at 0652 UT, FBY, 25 watts at Fairbury, Nebraska, a
regular in the winter, not heard summerly for months

338-MCW, TU Tulsa: see OKLAHOMA
340-MCW, YY Quebec: see CANADA

347-MCW, Sept 4 at 0647 UT, AFK, 25 watts from Nebraska City NE (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Sept 4 at 1427, HIFER beacon K6FRC IDs repeated vs
CODAR, 1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2102 monitoring; next:

** U S A. 600, WBOB, Jaxonvil FL with a last-minute DX test from 0400
UT Sat Sept 4: report sent about an hour later:

``Hi WBOB: Tnx for the DX test. I listened for the first few minutes
after 0400 UT, both on my R75 with E-W longwire and on my rotatable
DX-398, where WMT dominated as usual, and nulling it, mostly KTBB in
Texas. I might have detected your code IDs or sweeps, but I did
definitely get your DX test in 2016, so instead I went online and
tried some remote KiwiSDRs: the ones in Orlando and Tampa are deaf!
Nothing on 600, could you believe it. However I am hearing it loud and
clear via the one in Woodstock, Georgia. I want to hear what you are
doing even if it`s not `DX` via the remote.

So tonight`s details are via GA, and not direct! --- 0429 sweeps,
S9+25 and dominating 600; 0433 announcement with reverb, to be on for
a couple hours, 50 kW day pattern. E mail bobtx@protonmail.com - old
school audio processing except for the reverb. On for another hour or
so; ``WBOB, Jacksonville, testing`` and music. 0441 about the audio
equipment which seems to be the original reason for the test. Got an
email from Broward county; mentions WMT, what is identity of the
wobbler ruining WWL 870? --- It`s certainly one of the Cuban
transmitters. Three are listed on 870, but no one seems to know which.
Radio Reloj network, and one of the others provides the timesignal
beeps also to be heard.

0453 VVV VVV VVV DE WBOB WBOB WBOB + several more lost count before K
and back to music.

Of course it`s no big deal to pick up WBOB in Georgia, altho I would
not mind a QSL.

However, I would be more interested in a QSL for my DX report of your
test in *2016* when I really heard it direct to Enid OK. This is my
report of it then: I don`t recall whether I also sent it to WBOB at
that time. Times as always UT, in winter of course 5 hours ahead of
EST rather than 4 hours ahead of EDT now:

from 2016!!:
** U S A. 600, Jan 10 at 0545 UT on the R75 [from Brandon] with E/W
longwire, first check for the WBOB Jacksonville FL DX test which
started at 0500 UT. Really too much WMT on this antenna, so switch to
DX-398 nulling WMT IA as much as possible, i.e. aiming SE instead of
ESE, which leaves a mix of Cuba and who knows what. Soon I hear Morse
code spelling out JACKSONVILLE, so I could stop right there; 0549 UT
sweep tones; 0550 UT rising beeps, phone-off-hook pulses; 0554 UT fire
alarm siren & bells; very slow Morse spelling out WBOB a few times;
0555 UT phone-off-hook; 0557 UT WBOB in Morse many times; 0558 UT
sweeps upward; 0559 UT beeps upward; 0600 UT phone-off-hook; 0603 UT
fire alarm; 0605 UT I hear a voice mention Jacksonville, but suspect
it was coincidental at end of Fox ``news`` from WMT; etc., etc. Tnx
for the test, reportedly with 35 kW non-direxional day power and ND
pattern rather than 9.5 kW out into the Atlantic normally at night
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

BTW, I also DXed some FM stations in the Jax area this summer, by
sporadic E. Maybe some/one of them related to WBOB? I could also send
a detailed report of those.

Thanks and best wishes,

Glenn Hauser
WORLD OF RADIO
P O Box 1684
Enid OK 73702``

One minute after sending this, I hear my name mentioned on the air at
0503! But does not refer to what I wrote. Nice selexion of music too,
tho I did not note the details.

Further log details: 0441 discussing audio equipment; email from
Broward, mentions WMT as another great station; quoting me about the
wobbler from Cuba. 0444 CW ID again VVV DE WBOB with repetitions. 0505
says objective is to go to all-tube-type audio chain avoiding digital
distortion. But are they still a talk station? 0518 CW ID, 0529 sweeps
and VVVs; 0535 `Stairway to Heaven`. 0543 mentions 33 rpm records?
0545 about to close with Sandy Patty`s `Star Spangled Banner`, but
when she goes into an extra verse with lyrix I don`t recognize, she is
cut off at 0548, more CW IDs. 0549 only snippets of other tunes:
Rhapsody in Blue for less than a minute; 0550, 0551 others, ``In the
Mood``. 0600 VVV DE WBOB IDs again, but still more music, Edith Piaf
doesn`t regret anything, and it`s time for me to tune out.

At 0557 I followed up to WBOB: ``Tnx for mentioning me one minute
after I sent the email. I`ve also enjoyed your musical selections, but
did not note down the details. I see in FCC info the only FM in Jax
under same ownership is the 102.3 translator, I suppose of WBOB.
Not sure if you have gone back to night facilities; the signal seems
to have weakened into Georgia with more interference by 0555 UT, still
music. Regards, Glenn Hauser, OK`` No reply to my mail by 1700 UT.

Checking FCC listings, WBOB is owned by Chesapeake-Portsmouth
Broadcasting; the only FM they own licensed to Jax is a 102.3
translator, does not show if it relay WBOB (AM).

FCC AM Query has been very slow-loading lately. Previous calls of WBOB
in reverse order: WBWL, WPDQ, WOKV back to 1981y. The DX host
mentioned pulling music out of the dormant WPDQ record library. All
this certainly a great improvement over WBOB normal format as of last
year`s NRC AM Log: ``The Answer`` = far-right talk like 660 Dallas.
This must be pre-empting `Red Eye Radio` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6885-AM, UT Sat Sept 4 at 0242, JBA carrier, maybe trace
of music, also at 0303, pirate? But nothing reported tonight on HF
Underground. I had a similar log on Aug 21 UT Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

This report dispatched at 1718 UT September 4

UNIDENTIFIED. 11690-11695-11700, Sept 4 at 1429, sounds like DRM
noise. EiBi shows VOA Khmer via Philippines, not DRM, at 1330-1430.
However, CNR1 Digital, CHINA is on 11695 at 0055-0900 so maybe that
running a bit late, from Dongfang, Hainan as Aoki agrees (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 10715, Sept 3 at 2214, a few Spanish numbers alternating with
digital blaaaps, spy number station as regularly scheduled but seldom
noted here. EiBi shows 2154-2257 on days 1357 = M/W/F/Sun (Glenn

distorted FM blob, but I make out a KOFM ID in passing, and then
confirm the music is // my Enid local on 103.1, also at 2219. This is

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat Sept 4 at 0000, WBCQ webcast with
`AAAWWW`; not even checking SW frequencies but Allan says they are
only trimulcasting on 7490, 6160, 4790, as he couldn`t get 3265 to
come on when he tried at 2345, unknown why it`s getting no AC, and no
time to mess with it now, maybe a fuse blew?

The $ 245K plate amplifier tube from France has arrived. Continental
will be coming next week to test it before installing in the
SuperStition. The crate alone must have cost $ 1K. It was well packed
with a tip indicator, which shows it was also carefully handled in
shipping. Complains that can`t get people in to do antenna work no
matter how much the pay. 2 megawatt Diesel generator has also needed
maintenance for two years. Blames government for unemployment
compensation. Electricity cost has doubled since WBCQ started in 1998,
but airtime rates remain as then, not even raised for inflation;
roughly $ 50/hour, should be $ 200+.

0022, caller from Toronto with news that CHML 820 in Hamilton has
flipped to comedy format. [NO, 820 is CHAM; CHML is on 900! -- gh];
discussing formats and whether there is really any demand for comedy;
0026 mulling future of AM & FM; noting that Switzerland is keeping FM
a little longer until 2024 when everything goes DAB. 0033 caller from
Durango CO, ``Ravvashoe``? 0037 starts reading cold some items from
new Free Radio Weekly just in, including mine about ``Lode`` Radio,
MRI classical and YHWH.

0039 Bill in Ohio interrupts as another caller. Points out that unlike
most cars, the Toyota Prius has VG AM radio engineered so car computer
noise itself is avoided. 0045 resumes FRW items. 0047 caller requests
some music, ``It`s a Beautiful World`` by Devo. This is not a music
request show, but will make an exception and play that for him next
week. 0053 stream craps out as usual at this exact time, why? I
restart it. Don`t blame White people for slavery: everybody did it
back in the day. 0058 prayer, and off by 0100 in time to hear Hal
Turner theme. John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan and
Angela in the studio. Allan went out to check why 3265 wouldn't come
up before the show started and said it wasn't getting any AC power.
Didn't have time to tear into it then. The next talk was about a new
tube that showed up at the station. I'm assuming it's the new tube for
the superstation but I've been fielding a lot of telephone calls this
evening. They went on at length about how the tube was packed and how
sturdy and high tech the crate was.

Phone call at 0022 from Canada talking about radio formats. Phone call
at 0033 from a long time listener whose name I can't spell. Reading of
the new Free Radio Weekly began at 0038 and was interrupted a minute
later by a phone call. Starts reading the Free Radio Weekly again at
0045 and a phone call at 0048 from Kracker. Into reading of the emails
at 0051 and closing prayer at 0058 and off the air at 0100. John,
Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6765-USB, Sept 3 at 2317, 5HF in contact with unheard
5IS; MARS net? Soon fuller ID as NN5HF, or is it NNN5HF? Then digital
blaaps (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
