WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULES
updated March 14 for DST season
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

** CUBA. 11850, March 14 at 0057, RHC is S9+20 but very suptorted;
while Spanish on 11760 and 11670 is normally modulated if hummy.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA. 7140 & 7180, March 14 at 0313, JBA carriers a smidgin
above each frequency but matching, and the higher one a tiny bit
stronger, both vs LSB QRhaM and storm noise: so obviously the Voice of
Broad Masses intruder pair (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4030-AM, March 14 at 0300, JBA carrier vs storm
noise - tornados in TX panhandle approaching but better fizzle --
maybe a bit of musical modulation, gone by 0343 recheck. Bet it be a
pirate as no ex-kewss for any othersig here. Yup: Ball Smacker Radio
per several reports between 0158 and 0336* here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,79065.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2077 monitoring: confirmed Saturday March 13
starting at 2044.2 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, as heard near-locally by
KB0FX KiwiSDR. From next week nominal time will be 1930v UT.

Also confirmed Sat Mar 13 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, fair via PL-880 here.
>From next week this will be at 2130.

Also confirmed Sat Mar 13 at 2300 on WRMI 7780. S4-S5 and noisy via
KB0FX MO SDR but presumably better further east. Next:

Also confirmed UT Sun Mar 14 at 0418 about 6 minutes into so started
early circa 0412, S9+10 at KB0FX remote; at 0400 I had checked 1860
direct when it was S9+20/30 here vs storm crashes. From next week
nominal time for this will be 0315 UT. Next, with DST shifts:

2200vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW [ex-2300?]
2300 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE [new]
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE
1901 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [ex-2200]

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

** U S A. 7570, Sat Mar 13 at 2300-2400, Radio Tumbril, Scotland with
`Encore` classical music via WRMI. VG via KB0FX KiwiSDR; also repeated
after 0100 UT Sun Mar 14 on WRMI 5850. Host Brice Avery says the next
WRMI airing, UT Mon on 5950 due to DST will be one hour earlier from
March 15, at 02-03 UT instead of 03-04 due to DST.

Yes, per the skeds at http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIgrid
these Systems make a DST shift: B = 9955; G = 9395 between 5 and 11?
pm EST/EDT, joined by 9455 at 8-9 pm; and L = 5950 at 4-12 pm EST/EDT
except 6-7 pm on 7570 instead; but the label got it backwards. All the
other Systems are supposed to stick to UT.

Different frequencies take different System feeds depending on the
time. While this may make sense in some way, it would also be very
helpful to listeners if there were ALSO full program schedules
presented frequency by frequency -- not just the transmission skeds at
top of page (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun March 14 at 0200, Texas Radio SW via WRMI, as
heard VG via KB0FX KiwiSDR in MO: starts with seabirds, a different
jazzed-up version of `YROT` theme, Third Mate Sudan introduxion of
another TX mx tribute, offers QSL, also Can`n Ric. Some words are
skipping as I listen, but does not affect the songs later, by Dana
Maria whose real voice speaks from Frankfurt, Germany but originally
from Austin. She introduces three songs at a time along with TRSW
synthIDs; such as 0223 Trip Down Memory Lane; 0234 Wheelbarrow. Such
tunes are not really appealing to me, but I wish her well.

Maybe TRSW could eventually diversify. The wind band at University of
North Texas, Denton, comes to mind, not strictly classical:
https://windstudies.music.unt.edu/recordings
They also have some stuff on YouTube that can be searched out. Its own
radio station callsign is not what you might expect.

As for TRSW on WRMI, their sked grid now shows two airings, as shifted
henceforth due to the imposition of DST on 5950 System L: UT Sunday at
01-02 and will stay an hour earlier than `Weekend Radio` on WCLV; and
Monday at 20-21 UT --- which is a bit early in the day for 6 MHz band
to go very far, 4+ hours before sunset (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Mar 14 at 0116, WTWW-2 webcast avoiding
crummy audio on its SW, in stereo, `Theater Organ Under the Arch`
caught from the beginning and this time lasting exactly 30 minutes
until a Tedad at 0146. Bob Heil presenting more archive recordings
including his own but starting with Gene Wright. Annoying just before
it started was the WTWW ID mistreating our National Anthem as if it
were produxion music with just a few seconds of it. Presumably this
will all appear one real UT hour earlier from next week as WTWW is yet
another ``international`` SW station succumbing to intranational,
irrational DST (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. CBS SUNDAY MORNING, online access seems to change every
week. On Sat Mar 13 I`m ready to view the Sun Mar 7 edition via
https://www.cbsnews.com/sunday-morning/
but inexplicably the top link is not to March 7, but December 27! It`s
62 minutes so presumably the whole thing, just the wrong week, wrong
month, wrong year.

However, beneath it are linx to ten individual segments of March 7
which don`t quite add up to 62 minutes: missing are the opener, and
the closer, nature segment. Later I do find the latter further down
and it`s a hefty 3:23 long featuring baboons. On the broadcast it is
always much shorter, obviously used only as a filler to round out the
sesquihour as needed.

So I have to play each segment individually and put up with 3 or 4
different 15- to 30-second duplicative commercials rotating first;
when each segment finishes it always defaults to whatever is on the
current CBSN live stream, so have to keep backing up to the SM home
page. Enough of this nonsense: back to taping it myself off KWTV at
too early 8 am [now 13 UT] Sundays, and going to the web only in an
emergency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, March 14 at 0458 UT tune-in for WENR Englewood TN much
publicized 1000-watt ND daytimer DX test, and already hear sweeps
upward. Must use LSB to avoid KRLD 1080 IBOC noise circa 1093, but
cannot avoid the major occupant of 1090, KAAY Little Rock. I do record
it as required for QSL and will eventually get around to sending
report, but I will not subject myself to more than 9 minutes of KAAY
inevitable gospel huxter. Test will run two hours until 0700.

At 0500 solid tone, 1 kHz? Pause maybe unreadable voice ID? Never
copied one. 0502 sweeps upward. 0503:45 steady tone. 0504:10 VVV VVV
DE WENR - there may have been a bit more in the code ID, thought I
copied MER; sweeps up again. 0506 code again, is it faster, and/or
higher-pitched? 0507 phone-off-hook pulses JBA; 0508 code again
including WENR and sweeps again, tune-out by 0509 UT. On my R75 with
100` E-W longwire. Of course from this angle, no way to null KAAY on
the DX-398, almost same direxion. 1210 km = 752 statute miles.
Englewood is between Chattanooga and Knoxville. Heavy storms west of
here earlier this evening not a problem now for this.

Tnx for the test; should be widely heard. This is the same station
which was originally going to try a daytime DX test just before
sign-off, 2200-2315* UT on Sat Feb 27, but that was canceled; why?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 13771 & 13629 approx., March 13 at 1503, extremely distorted
spurblobs from RHC 13700-AM. At first there is no recognizable program
audio. By 1523 there is a bit in FM or AM tuning, the F# tone more
evident in AM. Also then found second-order blobs circa 13558 & 13842,
i.e. plus and minus 71 and 142 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
But not this, when checked March 10, 11 or 12 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri March 12 at 2300, REE S9+15/40, not off the air,
with timesignal only about 0.5 second later than WWV, Spanish ID and
opening token English. This time Alison Hughes presents a show about
the Teatro Real producing, despite the pandemic, `Siegfried`, part of
Wagner`s Ring cycle. Bits of music and interviews with several people
involved in the opera from singer to conductor, producer, some in
Spanish only. At 2310 one of them could not resist comparing the
concept of the Ring, quest for Godlike power at the ruination of
mankind and the planet, to Trump (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 6135, March 13 at 0628, French mentioning ``Afrique``
just before 0629*; HFCC shows 0600- BBC via VATICAN to CIRAF 37, which
is Iberia, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia. Also with a LAH, probably from
always off-frequency Aparecida, Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2077 monitoring: almost confirmed
Saturday March 13 from 1325 until music start at 1329, JBA 15770 WRMI;
nothing readable but sounds like my intonation for the 1300
broadcast.

Also confirmed Sat Mar 13 at 1700 on WRN North America webcast, after
FSN headlines. I think this will stay at UT 1700 for the rest of March
despite the imminent imposition of DST over here. Next:

2030vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
2230 UT Saturday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 7490v & 6160v, UT Sat Mar 13 at 0100, a T-storm is passing
thru Enid, which means the computer is disconnected as is the main SW
antenna; while the WBCQ signals are too weak vs the noise level to
follow `AAAWWW` using the indoor longwire. A bit came thru at 0159
when it seemed to run overtime past 0200. So this week only John
Carver`s summary:

``AAWWW --- Tonight's show started on time on 7490 and a few seconds
later on 6160. Allan and Angela still in Maine. Immediately after the
theme music stopped, a rant about cancel culture started. Topics
covered included children's cartoons, Uncle Ben, children's books,
Aunt Jemima, the Land O'Lakes Indian, etc., and then morphed into the
gender wars. Discussion was interrupted at 0122 by a phone call from
Kracker but he continued the discussion and the discussion ran until
0150 when Allan started reading emails. First off was the new Free
Radio Weekly. Quick closing prayer at 0200. Program was off the air at
0202. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CUBA. 11845, March 12 at 1540 Cuban pulse jamming against nothing,
despite Radio Martí having abandoned this frequency some years ago.
Something`s always wrong at the incompetent and wasteful DentroCuban
Jamming Command. Other broadcasters may be on to them: HFCC B-20 shows
absolutely nothing scheduled on 11845. But EiBi has another jammer
country, China`s CNR2 at 0100-0855 via x site. See also TURKEY [and
non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. On March 12 I wrote to Radio Verdad: ``Dr Madrid, We
miss your SW signal on 4055. What are the prospects for getting it
back on the air from Guatemala? Regards, Glenn Hauser``

Quickly replied: ``Dear Glenn: Thank you for your concern. We are
planning to repair one power module next Tuesday, in order to come
back on air with 280 watts. I have acquired the mica insulators we
needed for the power transistors. I am sending the other two modules
to Canada to be repaired by Eng. Wayne Ralph Borthwick. The delay has
been caused by the extreme negligence of our Technician. May God be
with you and keep you with a good health. Dr. Édgar Amílcar Madrid,
Radio Truth, Chiquimula, Guatemala, C. A.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 6125, March 12 at 0430, VOT Turkish music filling
out English hour to N America, but with heavy pulse-jamming QRM adding
up to S9+10/20. Of course it`s overrun from Cuba after Radio Martí
quit at 0400*. Clueless TRT frequency management has not grasped it
should avoid any Martí frequency even when itself be finished. Nor
9830 hitting RTTY after 2200 in the A seasons which I bet they are
about to resume. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

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

** U S A. 5800, Friday March 12 at 0705, S9+20/10 of open carrier, got
to be WRMI again on air during scheduled break for some reason, as
last heard about same time on Monday Feb 22. Wonder if automation be
mis-programmed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12050, March 12 at 1538, S7-S9 of dead air in Spanish from
WEWN; for at least a minute, so not merely long boring pause in a mass
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, March 12 at 0706, JBA S5-S6, maybe trace of
modulation from presumed R. Vanuatu, 2 x 3945; also S4-S5 on 11835, 3
x 3945, the three of them now starting at 0700. I`ve been intending to
seek previous fundamental 7260 until 0659 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.85V, March 12 at 0330, JBA carrier again suspected
of being second harmonic of an off-frequency 1480 station. As
previously reported on almost same frequency:

``UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.842, March 2 at 0207, JBA carrier, suspected
second
harmonic of a 1480-minus station. Later checked my previous log to
find independently measured within 3 Hz:

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.839, Feb 22 at 0349, JBA carrier unseems birdie,
again suspecting a second harmonic from a Latin American MW 1479.9195
but nothing that far off in mwoffsets``

Meanwhile no one else has reported it; did anyone even try? So this
time I quickly go over to the KiwiSDR net looking for it at numerous
remotes around USA and S America --- nothing. So now I am concluding
it really be birdie from a local device. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11342-USB, March 12 at 1542, 2-way, at first unID
language but maybe heavily accented English from a flight, reply in
real English mentioning phone patch and sending sel-call tones. But
nothing more heard for 4 minutes. Numerous 11342 logs in UDXF iog up
to 2018y as New York LDOC; tho maybe some other hub along whatever
route this apply to. What does LDOC mean? Last Day Of Classes, Laying
[sic] Down On Couch; or more likely, Long Distance Operational Control
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6180, March 11 at 0147, S9+20 of dead air on CRI relay, trace
of underaudio maybe Brasil if not CRI JBM. Also some lite pulse
jamming, maybe bleedover from Cuban neighbor transmitter. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 11880, March 12 at 0059, huge open carrier,
S9+10/20 via Bonaire KiwiSDR, so quiet that I thought at first the
tuner was muted. About 0059.7 a few notes of the Encompass IS so
evidently routed via London; 0100 opening ``KBS World Radio``
pronounced in English, otherwise relay in Spanish. This was found by
Ivo Ivanov as a new entry in HFCC B-20 for March 10-12 only as a test,
but was heard yesterday until 0200 with a VG signal by JRX in Brasil
who thinx it runs at least until March 28. Supposedly still on 9605
via WHRI at same hour, I did not get around to checking. Other
frequencies were registered via Greenville but AFAIK never tried. We
assume that KBS relay is due to switch from SC to NC, sometime. I
understand it is on azimuth 164 from Grimesland (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 332-MCW kHz, March 11 at 0716 UT, unusually a third station
mixing with IC Wichita KS and QT Thunder Bay ON, the latter weaker
than usual as it normally exceeds IC despite being 10X further. Part
of the call is overlapping, but ends with -IS. This is a likely fit:
FIS, Key West - Fish Hook FL, 400 watts. I had another fishy log of
this on Dec 14, over 2 megameters away vs TB at only 1.5 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, JBA vs CODAR, March 11 at 1451, K6FRC calls over
and over, HIFER beacon in Patterson CA, every logging notable as it`s
1.8 milliwatts. Never traced much later in the day (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2076 monitoring: Monitored WRMI Sunday
Evening / Monday Morning (UTC) 7780 kHz Schedule --- From my recording
last Sunday evening, 7-8 March 2021 UTC (note additional airing of
World of Radio at 23:00 UTC): 23:00 World of Radio (#2076; not
Bringing Truth to Life) (Richard Langley, NB, March 10, WOR iog)

New, now added to the sked grid. Has been 24 hours earlier Saturdays
but not on grid, so both now, or moved? This would have been at same
Sunday time as on Area 51 WBCQ 6159.93, but from March 14 that
presumably shifts one UT hour earlier to 2200 UT, further into
ever-increasing daytime absorption. I`m hoping A-21 skeds out shortly
from HFCC will no longer show a WBCQ conflict with WHRI over 7490, so
we can go back into the night at 0300 UT Mondays on 6160-. 7490
programming obligations had to be moved onto 6160.

WOR 2076 also confirmed Wed March 10 at 1050 when I happened to
awaken, the 1030 on WRMI 5850, VG.

Also confirmed UT Thu March 11 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9 but noisy
storm crashes from Iowa; also some storms vs Pardinho, Brasil SDR,
S8-S9 at 0157 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

First broadcasts of WOR 2077 confirmed, UT Friday March 12 at 0130
just minutes after completion, on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct, and
sufficient tho noisy off the back via Bonaire SDR I already have
running; and 7780, good S9/+15 to UTwente, VG S9+10/20 to Maine (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540.20v, March 11 at 0705 UT, major het against 1540.00
KXEL at al. stations, presumably again WKVQ Eatonton GA, 10 kW
daytimer as previously traced; little or no modulation on it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2077)

** VENEZUELA. 6205.026v, March 12 at 0210, ROCV via Bonaire SDR, much
stronger than last night, power up from 60 watts? But
overmodulated/distorted, continuous music past 0230 rather than
frequent, or any, 93.7 IDs as before. Kiwi shows carrier varying
around plus 26 Hz, very close to where I measured it directly a binite
ago, +22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2077)

** CANADA [and non]. 269-MCW kHz, March 10 at 0726 UT, ND beacon UDE
--- could it be a Cuban, all of which start with U-? No, this one
alternates with a dash, so it`s Canadian, 50 watts from Delta MB.

DXinfocentre.com shows 16 U- Cubans, but all ``decommissioned`` except
250 in Habana - Playa Baracoa, UBP with 80 watts. Not even heard
here.

As in my previous compilation of Caribeacons, classaxe.com shows two
still logged in Jan or Feb this year, 250 UBP and 339 UAH Santiago,
and three more in 2020; but many more are not darkened yet. Lots have
changed their U- callsigns over the years; for security? And/or
miskeying. Something`s always wrong --- here, too (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Mar 10 at 2007, S9+10 open carrier, SSOB; likely RHC
warming up much earlier than nominal *2200 start and totally blocking
any Guinea. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545.061V, Wed Mar 10 at 1530, S4-S7 Bayto Yaikl
clandestine via defective FRANCE transmitter, audibly wavarying as I
try to measure it, roughly between 17545.049 and 17545.073. Semihour
also only on Saturdays, brokered by RMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.044, Mar 10 at 1940, continuous Qur`aning, S8
with a lot of deep fading to S5; as always, off-frequency, but
seasonally showing up better again soporifically for my nap until
switch at 2000 to plain Arabic talk; probably soon back to Qur`an
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, March 10 at 2006, REE reactivated after missing this
frequency for almost a week, S9/+10; so, good prospect for token
English at 2300 W/F/M; now it`s a silly ballgame in Spanish. Yes, at
2309, guitar-singers featured by Justin Coe on VG S9+10 into
Bonaire.

Pedro Sedano sends planned A-21 sked showing 9690 replaced by 17855
for North America, total span 1400/0200. Should be good over daypaths,
but much lower needed over nightpaths, like 9690. Wolfgang Bueschel
shows alternative version, changing to 9690 at 2200; we hope (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2076 monitoring: confirmed Wed Mar 10 at 2100
on WRMI 7780, S7-S9 into UTwente SDR.

Also confirmed Wed Mar 10 from 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490+, S7-S9 into KB0FX
SDR in MO, but with some lightning crashes which Blitzortung shows can
be no closer than southern MN and northern MI

Also confirmed Wed Mar 10 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, S8/S9+10 into Bonaire
SDR, atop jamming but losing out as the semihour progresses. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

New WOR 2077 should be ready by early UT Fri March 12 for first
airings at 0130 on WRMIs 5850, 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11825.020, March 10 at 1535, S4-S7 of M&W dialog,
intonation sort of French but not sure. Nothing scheduled now in
latest HFCC, Aoki or EiBi; tho RBAustralia may run until 1500*. Clew:
another site, capable of offfrequenciness (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11945, March 10 until 1538.4* shortly after tune-in to
JBA signal with Doppler flutter. Nothing scheduled; maybe a pre-test
for the next one, *1700 Japan via France? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
