Hauser
** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW kHz, March 2 at 0215 UT, ND beacon EI, Enid, is
back on! Had been off since February 9, leaving the channel to OIN
and/or DNI in KS & TX. Here`s a reception map for EI:
https://www.classaxe.com/dx/ndb/rna/signal_map_na/1360

That leaves 255 SW Stillwater still AWOL, as well as for much longer,
515 PN Ponca City (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PANAMA. 18150-USB, March 1 at 2015* tune-in just in time for HP9SAM
to go QRT. No fonetix, thought at first HP9FAM, but there is none,
rather per QRZ.com: ``HP9SAM Panama flag Panamá, Stephen A. Myers,
Pocri, Province of Los Santos 0758, Panama --- The town is 1/2 the
distance between Las Tablas and the surfer hangout of Pedasi. It is
3/4 the way down the Azuero peninsula on the Eastern side. This is
literally a "cow town" as the cows are driven through town 2 or 3
times a year to change pastures.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4775.05, March 2 at 0150, lively vocal music vs lite CODAR,
S8-S9 better signal than usual from presumed R. Tarma; 0158 Spanish
announcement probably full ID, including ``1,110 kHz``; 0200 some
Andean music. Checking the Progreso Cuban 4765 spurblob range,
4781-4785 so not a problem for this, but when I get back to 4775+ at
0205, it`s off, just when I was going to refine its frequency to third
digit. Is 1110 a match for their MW? No, per
http://www.radiotarma.com/informaciongeneral/
it`s 1510 but in VP reception, quinientos easily mistaken for ciento.
WRTH shows evening span of 0.5 kW OCX4E on weekdays as 2200-2400 only.
No het as Brazilian is long gone from almost same frequency.

BTW, WRTH 2021 page 315 shows 5 F.Pl = future plan Peruvian SW
stations on: 3270, 3295, 4800, 4935, 6090 --- be on the listen-out
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 9584.968, March 1 at 1510, African language S9-S5 and
off-frequency-minus. Aoki shows TWR Africa, Manzini in Malagasy M-F at
1455-1525; same span Sat/Sun it`s French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2075 monitoring: confirmed Monday
March 1 from 1900:58 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria via UTwente SDR
Holland; S8-S9 with usual heavy bilateral splash. Earlier, carrier on
at *1853:22; IRRS sign-on with Milano PO Box at 1859:50, Feature Story
News headlines at 1900:28. Within a few minutes, considerable fadedown
making it really unlistenable, skip lengthening? So I try an Iceland
SDR, but that`s too far, very weak. Then at 1915, Carlow, Ireland,
KiwiSDR, which is just right, S9+10/15. Next:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 9955, Mon Mar 1 at 1518, world music, Chinese? ballads
instead of scheduled Brother Scare, interrupted by Bob Biermann to
intone, ``Memories are the music from WRMI``. TOMBS still nearby on
9980 WWCR, whew! The anti-ChiCom, pro-Falun Gong, `Freedom Synergy
Radio` used to appear in this slot (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. TRSW eQSL received without direct request, for 0328 UT Feb
28 via WBCQ 6159.93:

``Ahoy Glenn - Cap'n Ric's pleased that you listened to a little of
our program via WBCQ. He thinks you'd enjoy the music if you listened
longer, although it's not classical. Here's your limited edition

and Channel 292. IDs and announcements were in EG and GM. The latter
for our many Channel 292 listeners in Germany.

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.942, March 2 at 0207, JBA carrier, suspected second

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST updated:
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm
just a few changes by Alan Roe concerning Taiwan, UK. Next edition
mid-March concerning American DST changes

** CUBA. Sunday February 28 at 2338, I`m tuning known RHC Spanish
frequencies at Bonaire SDR, about to monitor `En Contacto` to tell if
Arnie is back or mentioned at all? But they are *all* unusable! 13740
is strongest at S9+5 but extremely suptorted with listener postal
addresses --- it`s not QSL OTA but the ending of `Mundo de la
Filatelia`, stamp collectors trading.

`En Contacto` does not start until 2343, but I give up for now and
attend UBMP on 7490 webcast, music from Uganda. The other RHCs: 11760
like 13740; 11850 & 13680 crackly; 11670 off; 9650 & 9535 weak.
Recheck at 0005 March 1: now mod is OK on 13740, 13680 is off, 11850
suptorted, 11760 semi-suptorted.

Next and final `EC` airing is ~3 hours later. This week starts UT Mon
at 0237 when I find 5040 VG into Bonaire; ham DXpedition late in
March; 0243 PJ2LJG Curaçao speaks Spanishish about something; 0245
CO7SF; 0246 from studio about clima espacial, pronóstico hasta 20 de
marzo; 0240 quick QSL en el aire to someone in Bogotá, closing theme
with flute/CW already, with no credits, Arnaldo never mentioned,
finished in time for `Doctor` show to start at 0250.6 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4060-USB [only], e-QSL soon received Feb 28 from
Voice of Pancho Villa, alternating pink & purple letters, for 0432
2-28, illustrating ``Cocina de Prueba de Tamales Secretos de
Pancho!``:
https://www.w4uvh.net/VOICE_OF_PANCHO_VILLA_QSL_GlennHauser_2021.jpg
or #113 via:
http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html
with this note: ``VOPV QSL --- Thank you sir for tuning in to the
show! 73 Pancho`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: as I was semi-napping and listening to
`Wind & Rhythm` band music show on KUCO 90.1, my bed shook for maybe 3
seconds, at 2138:56 UT Feb 28. Later consulting USGS: it was a mag
3.7, 3 km SE of Meno OK, which is the second town just west of Enid on
412/60, 7.2 km deep, at 2138:38 UT. So it took about 18 seconds to be
felt here. There was another weaker one several hours earlier in
southern OK, unfelt. Time for more fracking crackdowns (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 392-MCW kHz, March 1 at 0502, ND beacon FMZ, which is 25
watts from Fairmont - Beklof, Nebraska, or spelt sdrawkcab, Aksarben,
Folkeb - Tnomriaf; with QRM from DDP Puerto Rico on 391. If the call
were also reversed, it would be ZMF, or in CW, ЮMЛ (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2075 monitoring: Sunday February 28
at 2258, WBCQ Area 51 is but a JBA carrier on 6159.93. A few minutes
before 2329, I try to hear the 2300 airing on remotes: at Alexandria
VA, algo, me? JBA S9 including noise level, but enough to display SAM
carrier offset from 6160.00 as minus 85v Hz. Rockport ME expected to
be in skip zone, no good, yet shows offset minus 48v. Is it really on
the air or not, and if so, is WOR on it? The A51/61 webcast is silent,
but the 7490 cast with UBMP is OK, so I can listen to that the rest of
this hour, and retrieve the first half UT Tue at 0000. BTW, last week,
U. Bill mentioned this fact just before the first half ended for those
who were about to get lost on the semi-repeat. Only after 0003 March 1
do I recheck on my own main rx: surprisingly, now 7490.2 is S9/+10 and
6159.9 is also S9/+10. Maybe recovering from a propagation
disturbance, as WWV reported K-index rising from 2 to 3 between 21 and
24 UT.

WOR 2075 confirmed UT Monday March 1 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30
direct, following double ID at 0029 by Zanotti & Graham.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 1 at 0230 on WRMIs 5800, S9+15/20 to Bonaire
SDR; 7780 S9+20/30 but not making it TA to UTwente. Also confirmed on
WRN webcast a few seconds behind those which were only an echo apart.
Next:

1901 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE

``My recording of the program via 7780 kHz may be found here:

-- Richard Langley, NB`` (WOR iog via gh, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, March 1 at 0437, gospel huxter, poor signal not
certain in English, peaks S9/+10 on generous meter but must also be
undermodulated; and also with heavy flutter. I guess WRNO which I
haven`t had a good signal from in a long time. Similar flutter infects
9385 WEWN, 9395 WRMI, even 9330 WBCQ tho a bit stronger, among others.
Propagation disturbance (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 560 KWTO, 580 WIBW, 700 WLW, 720 WGN, 840 WHAS, 1040 WHO,
1100 WTAM, 1110 KFAB, 1200 WOAI, 1540 KXEL, UT Monday March 1 before
and after 0500, all these stations ganging up but way out of synch,
with some creep trying to convince us that Pres. Biden is mentally
incompetent. Most IDs obvious, some presumed. Checking a few program
schedules, the creep is Bill Cunningham, and most of them are iHeart
stations. Tnx a lot (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Feb 28 at 0709, RHC in S9+30 of dead air, but 6100 is
still modulating English at S9+10/20; while 6060, 5040 and 9700 are
all off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. Re my unID 17850 open carrier, Feb 26 at 1542*, maybe
RFI/TDF which is on there at 07-11 only, Wolfgang Bueschel replies:
``Previous seasons also to NoWeAF and WeAF target:

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0006, no signal from The
Mighty KBC via GERMANY, altho a weak JBA carrier on plus side about
5960.5 --- maybe local birdie as East Turkistan, land of genocide is
normally minus less than that. But 0022 recheck, now KBC is on with
rock, S9/+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4060-USB, Feb 28 at 0432, Voice of Pancho Villa,
annual tradition for, if not from, the Winter SWL Fest, is underway
according to schedule publicized in HF Underground. I`m listening via
the NA5B remote near WDC, where it`s S4-S7 and noisy. Mixed with
Andean music, someone calls me, gh at 0432 and my actor replies
uncertainly. It seems that I, gh, am a recurring character in these
things. It`s all very disjointed, and my log notes reflect this!

Something about Viagra. Tommy Kneitel can`t be here because of a
problem with his pants. TK also recurs with different excuses each
time. WorldWide Crackpot Radio, gospel huxter asserts that gh is the
first Beast in Revelation. QSL offer via voiceofpanchovilla@yahoo.com.
Stops at 0445 so seems it`s a 15-minute show, and just in time for
next airing, legally via WBCQ 6160-, q.v.

At 0500 possible frequencies publicized are 3185, 4020, 3200, all USB,
and 5875-5915 AM. The only one the NA5B remote can hear is 3185-USB,
poorly at 0501 and seems to be a repeat of the 0430 and 0445 content
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6932-USB, Feb 28 8at 0010, dense rock music, S9;
0017 fade for quick announcement and more mx; 0025, ``looks like the
band has gone out; have a nice weekend; KIND`` and gone. Many more

** SCOTLAND [non]. 7570, Sat Feb 27 at 23-24; and 5850, UT Sun Feb 28
at 01-02, `Encore` classical music from Radio Tumbril via WRMIs, I
listen each week to most of it on the first, and pick up anypart
missed, or rehear on the second, both of which are our best bets for
frequencies aimed right at us NW from Okeechobee, so reliably VG. One
more chance is UT Mon at 0300 on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4027-USB, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0013, brief bit sounds like MARS
net talk, into digital blaaaps. Seems last time I logged this
frequency was at a totally different daypart in 2017y:

``4027-USB, Wed Oct 11 at 1123, MARS net discussing decodifying,
abbr`d calls as AL, WX or 4WX, AQG.`` But it`s often reported in the
MARE Tipsheet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2075 monitoring: not confirmed on
WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO via KB0FX remote, tune-in at 2042 to ARNL at
S9+10; after St Louis area meeting info, still no WOR but starting
ARRL News at 2058. Maybe we were on way earlier than nominal 2030; or
way later. Sat Feb 27.

Confirmed Sat Feb 27 at 2239 the 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+25 with
jamming litely underaudible.

Also confirmed Sat Feb 27 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, JBA here, but
presumably much better eastward.

Also confirmed UT Sun Feb 28 from 0430 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, via
nearby KB0FX remote. Next:

** U S A. 5800, Feb 27 at 0200-0300, Shortwave Shindig in Exile via
WRMI, sent my full report to David Goren and got his reply 24h
later:

``Hi Glenn: Thank you for the thorough report and for publicizing the
show prior to broadcast. And I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It was great
to get the CMS2 piece out to a wider audience.

Here’s a link to the program as received at my QTH in Brooklyn, NY.

** U S A. 6159.93, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0328, Texas Radio Shortwave via
WBCQ, song about water, and roboyl ID with eQSL offer. 0343 it has
switched to German. I thought this would be a repeat of previous show
already heard, but I don`t recall that song. So I`m mainly attentive
to Weekend Radio on WCLV webcast. TRSW no good to remotes in VA or KC,
but fair S6-S7 to KB0FX in MO, tho noisy. Blitzortung shows storms all
across Missouri from Joplin to St Louis; also along the KY/TN border
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (6159.93), Feb 28 at 0445 I`m listening to WBCQ Area 51/61
stream for perfect reception of Voice of Pancho Villa, after just
hearing it on some 4060-USB pirate; see NORTH AMERICA. Music is in
$ tereo! This seems to be a duplicate of the 4060 airing: T.K. can`t be
here; PV sad because can`t find Bob Brown [so this is new, original
Festmeister just deceased]. Where the hell is Enid. Further expletives
say hemp instead of hell. YL knox on gh` door and something? ensues.
Party for Gerry Dexter`s 100th birthday. 0452, 1-800-PAYGLEN[n]. gh
``hasn`t had an erexion in a sesquimonth`` [o, yeah?]. WWCrackpotR
again. HLV? to Bob L Brown; YL with QSL address. 0459 cut to WBCQ ID,
and I assume it`s over -- but no, more VOPV theme music and here we go
again:

Some of it is the same as before but some not. Apparently they are
replaying VOPVs from years goneby, judging from dated current event
references. This keeps going past 0600 when I bail out. But first:
1-900-PAYGLEN[n]; something about DX Partyline, and gh`s DX DAILY
[remember that?]. Beavis & Butthead take I-80 to visit gh in Enid, who
is allegedly ``looking for a woman who appreciates RF`` -- as in rough
foreplay? ``Take me to sidebar!``. IRS vs Gerry Dexter.

At 0512, I try to hear this on 6160-, but no signals at KB0FX or NA5B
remotes; evidently WBCQ turned off at 0500 while webcast kept on.

0520 seems to start another episode; 0530 Hillary & Bill Clinton-like
voices; Bob Dole says Bob Dole is out of Viagra; Jay wants to touch
Hillary [Jay was an odd character who attended Fests back then.] 0532
about the elexion and Palm Beach; going to see Allan Weiner in
Tallahassee -- brief voice sounds like really him; 0535 Katherine
Harris playing dominatrix; 0537 about getting Bin Laden; General
TimTron in his real voice. gh asks Osama for loggings, gets shot. A.W.
about Free Speech, offers Osama time on WBCQ at good price; back to
Brother Scare. United Patriot Radio guy; PV`s secret weapon: Britney
Spears. 0544 Franco dead over 25 years. ``From the pink and purple
room of the Fiesta Motor Inn in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania`` as
mentioned several times before. PV gets sex change in Sweden to
Panchita, going to Iraq to look for WMD... (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Feb 28 at 0135, WTWW-2 with `Theater Organ
Under The Arch`, but finished already at 0139 into Ted-ad. I`m
listening via some remote since Malwarebytes blocked access to WTWW-2
webcast as dangerous, if not the homepage wtww.us. Anyhow must have
started circa 0107, much earlier than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 346-MCW kHz, Feb 27 at 0705 UT, dash and YXL, which is
500-watt NDB at SiouX Lookout, Ontario. Commonly heard, but about time
I relog it for the record; tuned to 345-USB. See also USA [and non]
for YLD on 335. Tonight there is heavy S9 buzz blocking most signals
above 380, but clearer below (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 27 at 0619, RHC S9+10 in Spanish instead of
English. What else? The rest in English: 6060, but only poor S7-S9;
6000 and 9700 are both VG S9+10/20; At 0658 I catch 6060 just cutting
off, and find also off are 9700, 6100 and 5040. But at 0700, 6000
still on at S9+30, re-opening the English hour with ``jam-packed1``
program previews per ``Ed Newman`` hype. O, my, countless listeners
are going to be frustrated, since at 0715 recheck and probably long
before, 6000 too has been turned off; all gone. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13634 S3, 13766 S1, 13833-trace, all approx., vs 13830-AM
station, FMish spurblobs with F# tones out of RHC 13700-AM which is
S9/+10 but undermodulated. ~66 kHz intervals, but can`t detect one
circa 13568, nothing to block 13565 K6FRC beacon. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 17545v, Feb 27 at 1538, JBA carrier, presumed Biato Yaikl
clandestine via off-frequency Issoudun site, only on Sat & Wed (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEWFOUNDLAND [and non]. 11279-USB, Feb 27 at 1554, Gander Radio ATC
with a flight, referring it to 5616, selcalls. 5616 is also a Gander
channel for North Atlantic shared with Keflavik and Shannon.

11279-USB, Feb 27 earlier at 1548, thought I heard Andrews mentioned,
and with very heavy echo-delay, at equal level, too much for mere
long-path, rather as if from two unsynchronized sites, or some looping
in one`s output? Or was this really Gander, too, sounding similar.
Strangely enough, EiBi`s thoro ute info shows nothing but VOLMET from
Tashkent on 11279, 24 hours! More 2-way at quick recheck 1906.

Searching 11279 on the UDXF iog gets many more Ganders and aha, this:

``Re: long or medium delayed echoes --- Dave 07/28/18 #83761
As I recall, 11279 is used by Gander for Arctic region coverage using
remote transmit/receive site(s) in the Canadian north, including near
Iqaluit. It is possible they had more than one site keyed, but more
likely than not you simply caught some interesting X/O mode
interaction with/through the Auroral Oval which is currently dipping
down into central Canada. -- Dave Wright K3DCW, FM18qt, Maryland, USA,
"Real radio bounces off the sky"``

Also, strangely enough, 11279 kept showing up as a frequent group in
5-digit spy numbers copying (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 338-MCW kHz, Feb 27 at 0703 UT, ND beacon RYN, 400
watts from Tucson - Ryan, Arizona, but tuned to 335-USB; mixing with
dash and YLD, which is really on 335, 1000 watts from Chapleau,
Ontario. Unusual to hear a non-local 3 kHz away (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Feb 27 at 1539, JBA CW, too weak to copy but
well-presumed to be the usual 1.8-milliwatt K6FRC, Patterson CA, HIFER
beacon in a rare appearance; vs trace of CODAR QRM which is much more
prevalent below 13500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2075 monitoring: awake at 1309 Sat
Feb 27, JBA algo on 15770 from WRMI, probably me, but can`t be
positive. Did anyone hear it? Ken Zichi, MI, often reports this by his
following Thursday log roundup.

Confirmed Sat Feb 27 at 1700 on WRN to North America webcast; preceded
by FSN headlines and ``next, Guangdong Today``, erroneous announcement
n.a. to Saturdays which they are going to fix. Next:

** U S A. 5830, Sat Feb 27 at 1917, WTWW-1 night frequency is on again
in the daytime, fair S8-S9, SFAW? NO, it`s QSO ham show with Ted
interviewing someone who has been getting hate mail. Long ago when
properly on day frequency 9475, it would break away Saturday
afternoons for ham stuff. Now 5085, WTWW-2 night frequency is also
running in daytime with distorted rock music, S7-S9 vs noise level S7;
so Ted is having it both ways, the SFAW owners in Colorado getting
zero airtime for PPPP. Of course the proper WTWW-2 day frequency,
9930, has not been heard in ages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
