Hauser
** ANDORRA [non]. 13730, July 2 at 2317, French talk and rock music,
another R. Andorra revival, via AUSTRIA; tnx to tip from Jorge
Freitas, Brasil on the WOR iog. Last we heard, this month was going to
be only on 6180 earlier for Europe, as had not raised money for the N
American repeat, and had no prior notice this would be on. Still going
at 0007 July 3; or something else on 13730? VG into Maryland remote,
S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5952.4, July 3 at 0103, Texas Radio SW on 5950
WRMI has a considerable het on the USB side, evitable by LSB tuning.
Got to be the sporadically re-active Radio Pio Doce on its signature
split frequency. Can`t copy anything tho by tuning 5952.4 on USB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9673.2v, July 3 at 0646, no signal from RVM here, but a JBA
carrier a smidgin below 9675, which could be RVM or China. I`m on the
less sensitive interior longwire due to storms in my area (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, July 3 at 0638, RHC English on supposedly Spanish-only
frequency scheduled to end at 0500 per Aoki but EiBi shows an English
hour at 0500-0600, which is certainly a sporadic error. Only // still
on is 6165; while 5040 remains in Spanish. 11670 is S9/+10 but
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 3 at 1448, RHC playing an American Standard tune
very familiar but racking my brain trying to remember the name;
S9+10/20 but unfortunately very distorted, boding ill for Esperanto to
follow Sunday at 1500 but not rechecked. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. Another sporadic E opening I start hearing with Spanish
from the west, UT July 3 on caradio, standard provisos; reference
WTFDA FM Database:

97.3 at 0129, Mexmx in $ tereo. Nothing further but judging from PTA of
others, most likely the only one in Sonora, but in the south, not
close to Arizona, and none in BC, AZ, CA or NV:
XHSOS-FM 97.3 EL SIFÓN SON MEX Spanish RANCHERA LA RANCHERA 25.0 kW
ERP 76.96 m HAAT 31-17-19 109-40-28 --- 1512 km = 940 mi

96.7 at 0130, ID for ``Nogales, Sonora, XHN#S, 100,000 watts, La Mejor
FM, un concepto de MPS``; 0137 Senado PSA, Soriana ad, ``la Mejor en
FM``, music:
XHNGS-FM 96.7 HERÓICA NOGALES SON MEX Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA
MEJOR 30.38 kW 19.2 m --- 1330 km = 826 mi

93.5 at 0131, ``XHPO, Super 93.5 FM`` ID with street address Juárez
algo, zona Centro``. NO list in WTFDA db, but broad search on call,
slogan and frequency leads to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, which is in the
NW close to AZ, but wrong frequency. They must have moved! IIRC, top
end of Mex FM band is being cleared for community radio stations:
XHPPO-FM 106.1 PUERTO PEÑASCO SON MEX Spanish SPANISH HITS SÚPER
15.0 kW 62.12 m 31-18-20 113-32-11
However, twits show 93.5 already in 2019y but illustrated with 106.1
logo! Instagram and FB have it on 93.5 and FB with address:
``Blvd. Freemont # 9. Col. Benito Juárez. CP, Puerto Peñasco, Mexico``
--- 1551 km = 964 miles

96.5 at 0153, JBA Spanish tropical song. Not AZ, but probably same
city as 93.5:
XHITA-FM 96.5 PUERTO PEÑASCO SON MEX Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA
BESTIA GRUPERA 40.56 kW 189.55 m 31-43-43 113-14-09

Several more from AZ, CA this opening yet to be researched (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 USB, July 3 at 0034, ``Dream x 3`` song,
classic rock, S3/S4 vs storm noise level hitting S8. Off by 0055 check
but then there are 6950 and 6955. Zero logs of 6960 tonight at HF
Underground, but 24 h earlier, Ballsmacker Radio was widely reported
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950 USB, July 3 at 0055, rough blues song, good
signal; 0101 Wolverine Radio ID and SSTV, off by 0107 check. Multiple
logs here including several takes of the same SSTV image at sign-off:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,99150.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, July 3 at 0056, romantic/love song segués,
much weaker S7 than 6950 Wolverine, past 0113, JBA by 0120. These say
it`s Damn Skippy, with several copies of four different SSTV images:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,99152.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.4 AM, July 2 at 0033, S9+25 of country music as
local Enid CBer is again a pirate relaying 103.1 KOFM, as later
confirmed by //. At times a big het from another carrier, to jam it? I
wonder if the YL DJ realize she now be a worldwide SW broadcaster?
Sporadic E in play on 10m beacon band and shortly also on 88+ MHz FM,
so should be DXable by skip; but there are a lot more CBers on 27185,
blotted out here.

27184.460, July 3 at 1445, there it is again, S9+20 local signal, this
time measured exactly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. July 3 at 0037-0053 UT, not getting any sporadic E
FM DX, I default to the ham 28 MHz CW beacon band, IDs from WJ5O
roster:

28280 at 0037, dash and DE K5AB CENTRAL TEXAS; alternating with: DE
K5AB EM01 BEACON. S6 and the SSOB compared to rest very weak and
fading, requiring multiple passes to copy. I heard him last summer:
28.280 K5AB C GOLDTHWAITE, TEXAS # 50W, GP VERTICAL Power increase 5
May 16

28224.5 at 0042, long but slower WPM: K5GJR/B plus grid. Also relog:
28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL

28189 at 0044, DE VE4TEN/B x3, grid, fadeouts. I copied as VE4MN/B but
must be this, only one dit/dah difference:

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much
appreciated; thanks this week to Terry Colgan, Austin, TX for a
contribution
via PayPal in US funds, but not necessarily, to woradio at yahoo.com
and says, ``Thanks for your continuing dedication to the radio
listening
hobby. Best wishes for health and good DX``

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

** U S A. 9940, July 3 at 0643, WTWW S9+10 at odd hour for this and //
5085, rock music and talking about it. Ricky Leong, Alberta, had just
reported both to the WOR iog:

``During a break from the program "The History of Rock 'n' Roll," WTWW
presented a six-minute newscast at 0500 UTC, July 3, 2022, introduced
as "the latest news from Ukraine." The audio appears to have been
generated by a text-to-speech program and the newscast was entirely
"read" from a script, as no actualities (audio clips) were presented.
The information contained in the newscast seemed consistent with war
reports from major news organizations and wire services over the last
two days. The sign-off indicated the report was prepared by a
correspondent for the station in Ukraine, identified only by the first
name Alexander — actual spelling unknown, obviously. This newscast was
repeated some 90 minutes later. Ah yes, I should have mentioned: it
was in English. I didn't think to check how well 5085 and 9940 were
propagating into eastern Europe at that time. I'd guess 5085 had no
chance but 9940 might have been alright, if ionospheric conditions
were co-operating. 73, Ricky Leong, Calgary, Alberta, Canada``

What a coincidence that 0500 is the time WRMI used to relay UR1 with
`Ukraine: Security Issue` on 7730, but this is something different
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Another sporadic E FM DX opening July 3 at 0129-0210 from
Arizona, SE California, yet to be compiled, except for Sonora, see
MEXICO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1952 UT July 3

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Saturday July 2 from 1457 checking for
LRA36 -- no signals into 4 Argentine nor 1 Uruguayan SDR, but I let
the latter run until finally cuts on air S6/S8 at *1517 during music,
1520 canned sign-on, 1522 Antártida song. Switch back to LU4AA SDR
which gets it even better, S3/S9, also much better than the other LUs.
And I am the only User of this frequency. At 1526, info about Base
Esperanza, temp range +8 to -30; winds 50 kph; 8 families overwinter
at this base only; Station began in October 1979 as first SW station
on the continent --- which is still a LIE, as AFAN 6012 started
several years before. 1528 the `Sound of Silence` with new lyrix about
Antca. 1532 YL says it`s program #9 of the 2022 season: how time
flies, naming staff. 1536 contact info. 1541 This Week in History.
1545 ``Audaz`` ID with frequencies, ``Nacional, la radio pública``.
1546 song. 1549 acknowledge some email. 1552 interview a guy who has
some background noise, like roaring surf? 1605 a song about Esperanza
but maybe just hopeful not about the base. 1609 ID, about to give
phone number? when chopped off the air; and never comes back as I let
it play in background while I am mainly listening to `The Score`,
cinemusic on KUCO. Not quite a full hour but this time managed a lot
more than 18 minutes after sign-on Wednesday. Nor any OTH
radar/jamming today. How about another try from 1800? Nothing at 1820
check into Montevideo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Several FM DX stations from Manitoba and Saskatchewan are
intermixed with US in chrono order June 28 under USA [and non]: on
94.3, 92.1, 96.5, 88.1, 91.5, 92.7, 102.3, 90.3 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 7, July 2 at 1525 UT, no signal from `local` KOCO
``5`` OKC, the ABC affiliate, into my rooftop antenna as routed thru
STB DTV converter to one screen, no to my other DTV set. 2118 recheck
now there is a BAD signal not enough to decode via STB. Underpowered?
Intermittent? *2123 suddenly appears, turned up power or off backup
transmitter? Just as an unpredicted little pop-up storm approaches us
from the SW suggesting we should unplug (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2145 monitoring: confirmed Friday
July 1 from 1815.5 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, Villa Estense, 1323 kHz
but not on 918 or 207; S9+20 into nearby Noale SDR. But axual SW 7290
via Bulgaria never comes on from 1800.8! Temp or permanent drop? It`s
back on next day Sat July 2 *1800.8 as usual JIP FSN.

Anyhow, earlier on 1323: tune-in 1756 with US political discussion, no
idea what program, until chopped off at 1800 for IRRS ``SW`` sign-on,
and right into Feature Story News including Spotlight. 1805 IRRS ID
again, song. 1813 starts an interview from UN Radio, chopped off at
1815 already for IRRS ID and then WOR. Meanwhile there was a slow SAH
on 1323, maybe with music, from another station, Romania propagating
again? After WOR finished at 1845, music; 1852 `Country Jamboree` DJ
talk, but now there is CCI from algo talking in English. 1900 a tone
from one of them and IRRS` closing Verdi theme.

WOR 2145 also confirmed at 2030 on 1323 only, as Noale is offline, but
S9+10/20 into Vinci/Parma SDR. The CCI could be this as just reported
by Carlos Goncalves, Portugal: ``1323.0 2145-2155 01/7 G Smooth R,
Brighton, 500 W. Songs. 25342 CG``

Also confirmed UT Saturday July 2 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 into
Maryland SDR; also direct at 0151, noisy S9/+10.

Missed checking UT Sat July 2 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 5130; did
anyone hear it?

Also confirmed Saturday July 2 at 1600 on WRN N America webcast.

Also confirmed Saturday July 2 after 1930 one next WRN to N America.

Also confirmed Saturday July 2 ending at 2006 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
Wentzville MO, S9+9 steady into nearby Warrenton SDR, so started circa
1937.

Not confirmed Sat July 2 at 1948 on WRMI 15770 via Maryland SDR,
instead classic rock, another show or fill music? Despite WOR still
showing on the System B grid for 1930 Saturday on 15770, while the
rest of the day and night, that applies to 9955. However, the System C
grid shows Power of the Word Sat at 1930, certainly not what`s on now,
tho I think it was last week; as WOR has not really aired Sat at 1930
for several weeks. Next:

0030 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to SW
0300vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0315; as late as 0430]

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat July 2 at 0052 I tune in WBCQ webcast
since `AAAWWW` usually gets down to business about this far into the
0000+ show - but Allan is talking about just getting back on air after
a power failure in the Fla studio. Unclear whether all the Maine
transmitters stayed on in meantime, no SW checked here now nor
earlier. Just getting into emails from far-right extremists they
attract, on to prayer and off circa 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Huge Sporadic E FM DX opening June 28, in fact two
of them overlapping for a while from opposite direxions: might have
provided double hop if I were not between them. As usual, all heard
with my own ears in real time on my own radio, no recordings, no
internet access for stream // or anything, until extensive research
following three days for this report. On stock Nissan 2004 caradio, no
RDS, vertical fender antenna only so no manipulation for DFing or
polarization. Ultimately I will capture dozens of stations in SD, ND,
MN, MB, SK, LA, TX, MT. Some IDs are circumstantial and will welcome
any correxions or ID help. I do not count stations, states or
anything, and am not in competition.

Each DX log is a potential learning experience about geography,
economy, broadcasting etc., so the details are what make it all
worthwhile, unlike MEGO condensed one-liner loggings some editors
insist upon. Main reference partially copied for each is the WTFDA FM
Database. Distances are approx. licensed city-to-Enid, not
site-to-site, from distancefromto.net WTFDA DB provides coordinates
for each station, but it`s so much easier to let that site calculate
from names, being sure none go haywire. All times strictly UT = CDT
+5

Seeing that the MUF is well into the FM band, I go to the garaged car
at 1610 UT June 28, tolerating the heat, and start tuning around.

94.1 at 1612, national adstring loud & clear, got to be DX. ``The
Legend, 94-1, the rock station in northeast South Dakota for almost
four decades``:
KSDN-FM 94.1 ABERDEEN SD CLASSIC ROCK THE ROCK 94.1 100.0 kW 134.0 m

94.5 at 1615, rock/praise music, ``God only knows``. God only knows
which of these SD it may be: the first one right in Aberdeen like
above, but translator supposedly off more than a year; or the next
one, also religious, Brookings in E central SD, but only translator
and may not be on; or the third one also religious but decent 25 kW
power but rather close:

-- so definitely translator tail-wagger; only Tiger anywhere on 95.3!
--- 887 km = 551 mi

95.5 at 1619, ad for ``furniture made in Grand Forx`` --- got to be in
ND or maybe MN on the border: would you believe that both of these are
exactly the same distance from GF? at 169 km = 105 miles:
KYNU 95.5 JAMESTOWN ND COUNTRY BIG DOG COUNTRY 100.0 kW 197.0 m

96.7 at 1620, YL with weather, fading; maybe:
KKCQ-FM 96.7 BAGLEY MN COUNTRY Q COUNTRY 25.0 kW 170.0 m --- 1254 km =
779 mi
OR:
KQZZ 96.7 CRARY ND HOT AC MIX 96.7 38.0 kW 171.0 m - 1297 km = 806 mi

97.3 at 1621, rock/praise music: None at all in ND; only SD no fit;
only Manitoban is aboriginal in Dauphin. Only MN religious is outside
PTA but possible:
KDNW 97.3 DULUTH MN CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN LIFE-FM 97.3 72.0 kW 168.0
m --- 1250 km = 777 mi

99.5 at 1622, CCI to OKie, gospel huxter talk. Not MB or ND; only
religious in SD is a Mitchell translator; only religious in MN is:
KBHW 99.5 INTERNATIONAL FALLS MN CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN/RELIGIOUS
TEACHING PSALM FM 100.0 kW 171.0 m Heartland Christian Broadcasters
--- 1405 km = 873 mi

101.3 at 1623, CCI to Wichita about tree damage. Not SD, ND or MB;
only full-power in MN is not close but near M/SP:
KDWB-FM 101.3 RICHFIELD MN HD CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO 100.0 kW 315.0 m
--- 1020 km = 634 mi

102.5 at 1624, gospel huxter, maybe plugging a book about ``spiritual
biography of rock `n` roll``; music CCI. Manitoba ruled out, three MN
full-powers are not religious, nor is one other ND in Devils Lake, so
this ND translator?:
K273DJ relays: KFNW-1200 102.5 WEST FARGO ND RELIGIOUS TEACHING FAITH

or if really a rock station, then?:
KDVL 102.5 DEVILS LAKE ND OLDIES CRUISER 102 100.0 kw 143.0 m --- 1306
km = 812 mi

92.1 at 1625, rock. Only SD is country; not ND; MN has three rockers,
this closest:
WMIS-FM 92.1 BLACKDUCK MN ROCK THE RIVER 92.1 107.9 95.3 36.0 kw 176.0
m --- 1290 km = 801 mi

``Godfather's Pizza will return to Aberdeen next week with the opening
of Godfather's Express inside C-Express at 711 N. Second St. Food will
be available for takeout or delivery.`` And phone 226-3816 chex for N

100.3 at 1630, sports talk about baseball last night: Target Field,

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Wednesday June 29 from 1430 on Buenos
Aires remote, no signal until *1447 LRA36 cuts on amid song and
nothing but musical préludes until 1500 sign-on, multi-lingual, in
Ciclo Radial 2022, staff list. 1502 Antártida theme song. 1505 YL
about Base Esperanza, population, school for some kids, again claims
falsely to be first SW station in Antarctica. 1507 `Sounds of Silence`
song with Spanish lyrix mentioning Antártida.

1509 starts being hit by noise bursts several times per minute at S7 =
covering LRA36 as that is max peak of their SSB modulation. OTH radar,
or jamming? Amid it at 1511 an ID, ``su compañía``. This is program #9
of the 2022 cycle. 1514 SR/SS times as 10:30/15:10. Contact info with
phone numbers, etc. Abruptly chopped off air at 1518* and not heard
further. The QRM could not be discerned on the wideband waterfall, but
I checked just above and below: audible on 15480, audible but weaker
tuned to 15470. Then it`s no longer heard either by 1537 when I give
up. Maybe the Saturday repeat will not be curtailed and/or jammed?

People are reporting getting eQSLs signed by the four woman staff.
Kari Kallio`s, Finland, says power is 300 watts to a rhombic. However,
Manuel Méndez, Spain, who usually can detect it direct at S1 level,
got one too, as a reply not to a reception report but to an inquiry he
sent before they ever resumed broadcasting, citing the date and time
of his mail, when they certainly were not on air:

``Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain --- I had one too, a very special one,
from a nonexistent transmission. On May 2, at 1023 hours, I sent them
an email asking when the transmissions would start this season. We all
know that they started a few days later, on Saturday, May 7. Well, a
few days ago I received a QSL from LRA 36, confirming that I had
listened to them on May 2 at 1023 hours. I reply that this QSL is
incorrect, because that day they had no broadcast, and I simply sent
them an email asking when they would start transmission this season.
They answer me

"Good evening... we are sending the QSL according to the emails
listeners send... and you sent us an email at that time that we send
you a QSL with the date and time you sent us the email."

I send them another mail telling them that to send a QSL it had to be
from a certain program and they have to have a reception report,
explain to them what a reception report is, and also that they cannot
send confirmation by a simple mail in which they are asked a question,
and my QSL was false and did not correspond to reality. I no longer
get an answer. Here is a compressed file of my very special eQSL about
an nonexistent transmission...``

It seems their QSLs are worthless, just acknowledgments without any
checking or vetting. (I wonder if same applies to the no-data
automatic? eQSLs BBCWS has started for filling out a webform? Try it
with a non-frequency and see what happen) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

on loop. Some conclude with grid square but not copied; as listed in
