Hauser
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer check, July 30 at 1343: S8-S6 of Chinese on
13130; but only JBA or JBA carriers on 13530, 13020, 12850, no others
in the 12s-13s nor 16s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 30 at 0614, RHC English, S9+10 at first seemed
dead air, but then JBM with no buzz. 6000 & 6165 & 5040 are off,
leaving only 6100 sufficient. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7435 & 7335, July 29 at 0619, R. Martí is off
again; apparently the unrest in Cuba it stirred up has subsided. Since
at least July 12 it had extended past previous midnight closing at
0400 UT, presumably all-night until new day start at *1000.

But pulse jammers are still running on 7435 & 7335; and as for 40m
hamjamming, similar noise against nothing on 7215 and 7157 only,
rather than several more amorphous peaks as before (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, July 30 at 1602 past 1620 on random caradio chex,
dead air from KIMY, gospel huxter in Watonga; still so at 1729 UT.
Standard inquiry? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. Replies to my report on 5800 WRMI special, July 29 at
0300-0400: ``Regarding Perú le canta a las Américas,

Not sure what to make of the squeal being described, I briefly
monitored over 20 SDRs at various locations during the broadcast and
did not note this although other audio quality was variable depending
upon location. We'll see what comes in from the other reception
reports.

The conversational part of the program was a three-way Skype between
Lima, Peru, Durango, Mexico and Chicago USA. The best audio available
in that situation was going to be good telephone (vs studio) quality,
but the locations were authentic. The music was added later in the
mixdown, which accounts for the difference. Our upcoming special for
México in September will be a similar situation, with two locations in
México.

This producer will agree to disagree on the question of "more music,
less talk". Those fully fluent en español received some cultural
context to the bicentennial as well as about the songs and artists
themselves, and although that is admittedly not always to the taste of
all listeners, it is here - context - where radio can still add value
to music in a world where most listeners can just as easily pull up
songs on the Internet with better audio quality.

The promotional support as always is highly appreciated. --"Uncle
Bill" Tilford, Chicago, Illinois``

``The "squeal" problem with WRMI's 5800 kHz transmitter is real.
although I'd describe it as a "warbling whistle." On my SDR waterfall,
there are two unstable audio traces around 2 and 4 kHz from the
carrier on both sidebands. These have been noted consistently during
the Europirate relays organized by Texas Radio Shortwave the last few
weeks. As Glenn mentioned, this is almost certainly caused by a
problem with the transmitter's modulator. 73,
Andy Robins, Kalamazoo, Michigan USA``

``Does that turn up at just some azimuths maybe? Perhaps we'll find
out soon`` -- Tilford

There is only one azimuth ever scheduled for 5800: 160 degrees, same
as 4980 and 9955 (gh)

``Hola Glenn, Muchas gracias por tu reporte, hasta ahora hemos
recibido 14 reportes, tuvimos muy buena cobertura a nivel mundial.
estamos muy contentos, y te agradezco mucho tu promoción, yo mismo la
escuché en WOR la semana pasada.

Tu informe es muy críitico e interesante, te cuento, tratamos de
imitar el estilo de las emisoras tropicales de los años 70, la voz
femenina que nos acompañó es la de mi ex mujer. Hicimos este programa
para divertirnos y honrar al Perú en su bicentenario, yo soy
historiador especializado en las relaciones diplomáticas entre Perú y
México. Te mando tu verificación junto con un abrazo`` -- Alejandro
Vallebueno

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7310, July 30 after 2200, RRI in English to
Europe also reaches Maryland SDR just fine. Also weaker on 5945. Too
much piles up at this hour, also Turkey on 9830, Spain on 17855 M/W/F;
hard to choose which or keep switching around (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, July 30 at 1349, HIFER beacon repeating ID K6FRC
over and over quite readable vs CODAR; before retiring I had tuned to
13564-USB to remind me to check this first thing in morning. Claiming
only 1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA, any relog of K6FRC remains
notable, and certainly not every day, but never very far from 1400
making me wonder if it really run constantly. Seldom heard are any of
the dozens of other such beacons listed on the 13550-13570 ISM band
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBCs, UT Fri July 30 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct; 7780, S9/+20
into UTwente Holland SDR.

Also confirmed Fri July 30 at 2030 on IRRS via AM Italia, 918 kHz,
this week not cut off after 5 seconds but apparently complete until
2059, S9+32 including high noise level at first via Noale SDR, but VG
non-noisy by the end. In Arctic Radio Club mv-eko, a QSL shows AM
Italia, 918 kHz, 4.5 kW, folded monopole antenna on 55 m tower from
Granze (PD). No mention of Villa Estense as location. Well, the two
are only 4+ km apart, both 31 km SSW of Padova. A previous talk
program was chopped off at 2029.5 for IRRS only ID, then WOR. Next:

** U S A. 4840, July 29 at 0617, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR. This
happens frequently, sloppyrator asleep, literally? at the switch.
Meanwhile, TOMBS continues on 3215 & 5890, the latter lowly modulated
compared to 5935 PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Friday, July 30 2021

Hauser
** CUBA. 6060 & 6100 & 6165, July 29 at 0614, RHC English all about
equally undermodulated and strengths S9+10/20 while 6000 and 5040 are
off. No buzz on 6060. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. 5800, UT Thu July 29 at 0300, WRMI with special `Perú
Le Canta a las Américas`, in honor of the bicentennial of independence
in 1821y. I don`t have time to listen when broadcast, so record and
listen ASAP later. Opens with disturbing clip of about first 14 notes
of national anthem and IDs as if it were an interval signal. I object
to messing with NAs whether the SSB or any other.

But nice other Peruvian music for the hour mixed with Spanish-only
comments. I would have preferred more music and wish I were fluent
enough to follow the lyrix 100%. But then I often have trouble with
lyrix in ``English``! Bill Tilford speaks his inimitable Spanish here
and there, along with Alejandro Vallebueno, co-producer from Durango,
México, but someones also from Perú. Their comments sound like they
came over low bitrate internet, but music fortunately is
higher-fidelity.

Also it happens that this WRMI-10 transmitter on 5800 has a constant
squeal on it, rather like WWCR-1 used to be but that was much worse.
I`m hearing this on two different remotes so don`t think receivers are
to blame. It`s equally on USB and LSB so can`t avoid it that way, only
by narrowing AM bandwidth which of course is no good for the music.
Possibly a double-notch filter would help if we had one, tho the
squeal by definition is not a single pure pitch tone, but wavers. I`ve
noticed same on other 5800 broadcasts. For WWCR I heard that the cause
was modulator `cards` that needed to be replaced.

At 0329 break for WRMI ID, and personal greeting from Jeff White. Then
talk about Peruvian SW stations such as R. Tawantinsuyo, La Voz de la
Selva, R. Tarma. On SW they are all private stations, but on AM & FM,
R. Nacional has an important presence. There is a cultural classical
station on FM in Lima. Credits such DXers such as César Pérez Dioses.
About 0332 a cappella man singing I presume in Quechua. Next song
features a guy with a bad voice for singing. Then Estefanía sings with
a vocal range to rival Yma Sumac. Next song is a dance from the north
by a brass band. About 0349, something about a religious festival. I
never notice any reference to the current uncertain political
situation. Mentions Inca-Kola, which I remember as very pink and sweet
but today is a.k.a. golden with lemony flavor' and supposedly
available at my nearest Walmarts.

At 0354, QSL instruxions, at least 20 minutes of program details and
SINPO which would be 54554, main problem being the self-imposed squeal
which I will classify as I. Follows with cock crowing, chirps, and
other morning sounds mixed with an `Andean` tune, and closing.

All nice, but I wish they had included the national anthem complete
and uninterrupted. It is a very good one. Here`s one version of it I
find, all six verses for 12 minutes, but not showing the lyrix as
available on some others:

** U S A. 840, July 29 at 0530 UT, on a household radio against an E-W
wall, minimising WHAS, after Mexican music, Spanish IDs, fairly
clearly as ``Radio Malena`` 840; maybe also mentioned 1060. Later I
carefully null WHAS on the DX-398. The SS fades in and out, and
sometimes coincides up with WHAS down, SAH of a few Hz, but no break
at ToH 0600. At 0610 I can tell the songs are axually praisemusic by
their lyrix, the one now ``En el Nombre de Jesús`` over and over; 0619
another one about Jesús.

I know from experience that the normal SS vs WHAS is KVJY Pharr TX in
the RGV, 5/1 kW, rather than CMHW Santa Clara or any other LA.
Radio-locator night coverage map shows a null NE toward WHAS, mainly
to the NW but some signal due north. But that is not the known slogan
of KVJY. Supposedly ``Ultra 104.9`` but another name on website:

https://radioaleluya.org/horarios-de-programaciones/
R. Aleluya, as also in NRC Log is certainly not the name I was
hearing. But this schedule does not account for anything between 9 pm
and 6 am CDT!

Broad search on ``Radio Malena`` leads to stations in Serbia and
Argentina, but on FM, no connexion to AM; nor is there any similar
name in WRTH 840 or 1060 listings for Central and South America.
Possibly KVJY is plugged into a Radio Malena, altho the Argentine
appears to be secular. Mexican? IRCA Log of 2020 shows only two left
on 840, both ``Fiesta Mexicana``, in Jalisco and Nayarit.

The only other US SS on 840 in the 2020-2021 NRC AM Log, no later than
a year ago, were KJFA Belén NM [ex-860] with grupo ``Fuego 102.9``,
1800/30 watts; and WCEO Columbia SC, 50 kW direxional daytimer, ``La
Raza``, both extremely unlikely now, by power and/or time and/or
direxion. Possibly the name I heard was spelt differently than
``Malena`` as it seemed, so no further search hits.

FWIW, not much, the KVJY stream at 1700 UT July 29 after music had
multi-station ID for Houston, Iowa?, as Radio Aleluya, into `Diálogo
Pastoral` from Houston with hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 332-MCW kHz, July 27 at 0641, NDB dash and QT, Thunder Bay,
Ont., is JBA but stronger than nearby co-channel IC Wichita (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 27 at 0635, RHC English is S9/+10 but JBM here
under humbuzz. Unusually, 6100 and 6165 are still on, S9+10/20
sufficient, and S9+20/30 OK. At 0637, I find 5040 on but in Spanish,
S9+10/20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, July 27 at 0638, R. Rebelde like at 0238 is still dead
air, or maybe trace of sup-torted modulation. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 7345-AM, July 28 at 0142, R. Martí in AM instead of
DRM: maybe decided under circumstances another AM frequency would be
more useful than throwing it away on DRM which no one is listening to,
especially inside Cuba. Also on 7365, 7335, 6030, 5980 for a total of
five instead of three. Much stronger on the 7s atop any jamming (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, July 27 at 1515, JBA carrier direct, but at
1521 via UTwente, usual bigsig S9+25 of Tuesday-only clandestine,
Kashmir Civitas, via ROMANIA, exaggerated hypo-bass voice with
strumming background, presumably Urdu (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, July 27 at 0639 UT, NDB PN Ponca City is
gone again. One can only wonder if ever any flight axually make use of
it; and the others gone for months at a time but not forever (Glenn

** U S A. July 27 at 1520 UT, riveting testimony by officers on first
day of January 6 hearings. I quickly surf to find which networx are
carrying it live: MSNBC, CNN, CSPAN 1, even Fox `News`; of major
broadcast nets only ABC, via KOCO here; and also NewsMax! But soon
obvious they have only dipped into it briefly, back to own
anti-American discussion, and labeling hearing as ``DEM-LED`` which is
all they need to know to dismiss it; My-Pillow moron is still
advertising there. As for Fox, I only checked it for a split second,
but on AC360, CNN, Brian Stelter reported that Fox was also
interrupting and talking over the hearing with their own mis-takes.

It`s also on NPR via KOSU. Around 1645 UT, I make a quick AM & FM scan
on portable radio getting only stronger signals, and not a single
other radio station is to be heard carrying it. Of course many would
deny it since their format is some kind of music, sports or foreign
language, but even the news/talk stations ignore it: without exception
I think, they are all skewed toward the far-right. Possibly a deeper
dive into weak daytime signals would have found one (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re: ``4743, July 27 at 0236, JBA carrier vs CODAR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)`` --- soon replied other reports of it:

``Yes, observed exact 4743even carrier only around 0040 UT, when

** CANADA. 346-MCW kHz, July 26 at 0609 UT, dash and YXL, 500-watt ND
beacon at Sioux Lookout, Ontario is JBA. Hadn`t been able to hear this
or any Canadian for weeks vs summer storm and local line noise level,
so things are looking up. In winter it`s a regular not even logged
every time heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CONGO. 6115, July 26 at 0556, JBA carrier, presumed R. Congo on
earlier tonight. Yes, in fact Manuel Méndez, Spain later reports it
from *0522 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, July 26 at 0556, S9+10/20 of dead air in English from
RHC; 6165 and 5040 are off; 6060 DA with humbuzz; only 6000 remains,
wrapping up English at 0557 and no doubt about to go off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, July 26 at 2318 and later, NO signal from RHC English
hour. A perfect excuse, besides ``something`s always wrong at RHC``
for my annual sarcastic Tribute to The Revolution: ``Patria o Suerte,
¡Pensaremos!``. I am still awaiting visual proof of this slogan
scrawled on a surface anywhere on Cuba. Ahora más que nunca (Glenn

Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. 4765 and 5040 are nominal
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 26, REE English with Justin Coe at 2211
resumes the `DX program` from a biweek ago, out-takes, as the original
recording ran way over, when he responded to a second listener, Alan
Roe in England. No, there was a not a farewell show for Alison Hughes,
as things have been rather hectic. She started in 1990, took a break
and came back 12/13 years ago. He will invite her back as a guest.
Luís Martín, head of the external service, also took early retirement
in February; and there is also a new head of the entire RTVE. Was
going to play some music for this Alan, Blas Picón of blues harmonica
who just appeared 11 July in Madrid. Boogie-woogie, plays at 2222 ``If
You`re Not Around``; 2226 also acknowledges reply from Rodney Johnson
thanking Coe for previously acknowledging his mail. Another showname
suggestion: ``REEDX``. [But it`s NOT a DX program; how about
``Spainal-bag``? Nah?] Starts playing another music for him but only
time for a semiminute of something about Chicago until timesignal, off
and away. Also, Justin doesn`t know who in the large organization is
sending out QSLs. Anyhow, so far our WOR iogroupies are batting 100%
as only subjects of the mailbag. Or belay that, silly ballgame
reference. I`m listening via Virginia remote, always better than
direct to deep North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, July 26 after Spain dispenses with English at 2230 I
tune the Virginia remote to VOT, sufficient but not as good. Mostly
music, but at 2237 the COVID PSA plays, still that ancient outdated
recording, ``vaccine yet to be found``; but if anyone believe that, it
may impel more cautious behaviour. Sign-off announcement at 2249 has
crosstalk from something, sounds like Brother Hystairical
expostulating, maybe remote receiver overload. IS plays; 2256 pause
and restart IS, one announcement in German before cutoff so not
another hour or two tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 326-MCW kHz, July 26 at 0612, 400-watt ND beacon MA at
Midland TX is JBA. Had not been able to hear any beyond KS/OK for
weeks in summer storm and local line noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2096 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 25 at 2000 on IRRS via AM Italia, into Padova SDR only S5.5 but
better SNR than the stronger closer signal into Noale. Still on about
over at 2028 so appears this time to have aired intact successfully.

NOT confirmed Sun July 25 at 2200 on WBCQ 6160-; instead, quick ID and
right back to TOMBS. But WOR *is* playing on the Area 51 webcast. I
notify Larry Will immediately, and he replies:

``Sorry Glenn, they are having a computer problem at the station so it
will be B.S. until 7PM tonight [23 UT]. Lw`` --- and at 0302 UT
Monday: ``I managed to get you an airing on 6160 at 0300 UTC Monday
7/26. Signal good here with a slightly unfortunate QRM from Cuba. Lw``
And at 0337: ``I managed to sneak in "Brother Stair's Way To Heaven"
by Blind Paul (Paul Shalbetter, host of the classic show "Pan Global
Wireless) after WOR 2096 before I switched the transmitter back to the
B.S. Signal very good here in Maryland with occasional and persistent
Cuba interference. Cheers, Lw``

Maybe we can stay at our old time of 0300 for better nighttime
propagation altho 6165 QubaRM is a problem then -- and Cuba was on
6165 long before WBCQ picked 6160. Checked on an east-coast remote,
WBCQ is stronger than RHC, vice versa out here. More below.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 26 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 26 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 26 at 0230 on WRMIs: 7780 VG S9+10 to
Maryland remote, VG S9+5/15 to UTwente; 5800, S9+10 to Bonaire SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 26 at 0309 the special time of 0300 on Area
51 via WBCQ 6160-; by 0327 VP here with 6165 Cuba ACI even on LSB
tuning. Next, not until Wednesday:

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

** U S A. 3265+, 4790-, 6160-, 7490-, July 27 at 0239, all these WBCQs
are missing but 9329.784 is still on poorly with something in English.
Recheck at 0256, 4790, 6160 and 7490 are back on with TOMBS. Yes,
Blitzortung checked at 0300 shows an itty-bitty storm right around
Monticello. 3265 is apparently always off now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my FM DX report of a 100.3 mentioning Downtown Milwaukee,
is it WNCY Neenah-Menasha, or translator in Milwaukee?
``W262CJ relay of:WZTI-1290 100.3 MILWAUKEE WI USA OLDIES 100.3 AND

W297BY 107.3 --- [1127 km = 700 mi]`` --- Doug Smith, TN, replies on
WTFDA gg:

``WNCY is unlikely. It's solidly in the Appleton market (and might
possibly run Green Bay spots), not likely to be running Milwaukee ads.
Unless the Milwaukee event in question was Summerfest, which is of
regional interest. But it doesn't happen until September. I was in
Milwaukee last weekend & W262CJ has a pretty impressive signal``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Titans of TV: Farnsworth vs Sarnoff --- History Channel
tends to be too tabloid, but I watched this docu-drama on first airing
UT Monday July 26 at 0100-0200. Several repeats are scheduled.

``The Machines That Built America: “Titans of Television” History, 9
pm EDT [0100-0203 UT] --- The latest take on the That Built America
franchise chronicles the 1930s feud between Philo Farnsworth, the
inventor of the television, and David Sarnoff, a ruthless RCA exec who
sought to buy the pioneer’s fledgling company and control the new
medium.`` says Channel Guide. Yes, it paints Sarnoff as a real SOB and
Farnsworth as a sad and not properly recognized victim. I guess we
would never see this version of history on NBC.

``The Machines That Built America THCHD - Sun, 7/25, 8:00 PM CDT 1 hr
3 min "Titans of Television" New, 7/25/2021, History, Industry
The rivalry between a merciless mogul and an unknown inventor triggers
a social change in which people turn to television for entertainment
instead of books, magazines or the theater as the two figures attempt
to outdo each other.`` CDT Repeats per Titan TV:
Sun, Aug 01 7:00 PM [UT Mon Aug 2 0000]
Mon, Aug 02 1:08 AM [UT Mon Aug 2 0608]
Wed, Aug 04 11:00 AM [UT Wed Aug 4 1600]
Sun, Aug 08 6:00 PM [UT Sun Aug 8 2300]
These are from the original eastern feed; there may also be 3?-hour
delayed western feeds. Maybe also on web? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4743, July 27 at 0236, JBA carrier vs CODAR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6982, July 27 at 0235, S9 open carrier with fading;
pirate testing? Nothing about it on HFU. Also JBA carrier 6974.9-AM
presumably Nowhere Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15705, July 26 at 1417, JBA signal. Neither Aoki nor
EiBi has anything anywhen on 15705; but HFCC as of July 17 for entire
A21 season shows: ``15705 1400 1500 43S,44S TRM 125 45 -30 217 1234567
280321 301021 D 13700 Cmn CLN AWR AWR 197 x219`` i.e. AWR in Chinese
via Trincomalee, SRI LANKA; maybe recently activated?

Or, but here`s another report of this from Dan Sheedy, CA, via Bob
Wilkner, NASWA: ``15705 unID 1417-30, 1435-1459* 19 July. Mostly quiet
Chinese chat with soft pop & piano background during some
announcements (website info, closing remarks), audio off 1430-35 with
carrier left on. Also heard roughly same times 18 July, but not heard
on 20 July during checks at 1415, 1433. This sounds "SOH-ish" with the
web info spelled out "xx O H..", not listed in Aoki/EiBi`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0336 UT July 27
