Wednesday, October 20 2021

Logs
** ALGERIA [non]. 13815, Oct 19 at 1842, Qur`an at S7-S9, during RTA
relay hour via FRANCE. Violating Separation of Mosque and State ---
what, you say? Well, there should be, everywhere. My unID of 13815 in
Arabic after 23 UT once, remains a mystery (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9540-9590 approx., Oct 19 at 2207, splash range from heavy
jamming centered on 9565 against R. Martí; and another peak about
9600-9605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9710, Oct 19 at 2210, RHC S9+20 but distorted, as the Chief
Meteorologist roughly summarizes weather for Canada, USA, in Spanish;
as well as about :15 past some English hours. Even worse on
undermodulated 11850. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

You may notice that I seldom mention the content of RHC programming;
because it`s so outweighed by their SAWAs; and because you cannot
trust RHC to be honest about Cuban affairs, let alone American. DDC is
a good source for The Other Side, for example:

'Growing old in Cuba is like a living hell' -- 'I’m not helpless, and
I don't want to be condescended to. I need a dignified retirement,'
says a retired teacher who worked for the state for 35 years...
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1634315177_34832.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Oct 19 at 1501 tune-in for another
Tuesday-only check of IRRS` Kashmir Civitas [not Citivas I typoed last
week], VG S9+35 via UTwente, but it`s in Romanian!! I bet that`s RRI
programming by mistake; 1502 abrupt cut to Urdu with music background,
shortly switch to another speaker with no music. 1514 adding the
strumming undercurrent; 1526 cut to lite jazz, presumably filler after
K.C. feed ends or fails, until chopped off air at 1529.5* with no
further announcements nor even RRI IS fragment this week (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, Oct 19 at 0615, VON is on for a change, S9+10/20
in Hausa. Replying to my previous obs that it`s mostly missing at
0600+, Ron Howard and Wolfgang Bueschel say it`s intermittent and/or
may come on air later than I check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAIPAN [and non]. 11895, Oct 19 at 0609, S7-S9 in Chinese, SSOB as
otherwise on 25 mb nothing but JBA carriers. RFA Chinese scheduled,
also jammed, and also CRI English via Kashgar, East Turkistan, land of
imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems. 22 mb
also vacant except for 13840 NZ. Nothing but Pacific is propagating
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Oct 18 at 2200, REE back here after being the one
frequency missing the past week; but like before it crashed, again
distorted as switches from Spanish to English on a Monday; the S
American beam, now also fluttery and ``hollow``-sounding. The other
three are detectable, 17855, 15520, 11670, but 11940 is ``best``.

Another check Oct 19 at 2219, presumably Sefarad on Tuesday, 11670 &
11940 are JBA; zero on 15520 and JBA carrier on 17855. WWV says
K-index at 21 was 4, but no storms observed or predicted (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 245-MCW kHz, Oct 19 at 0620 UT, ND beacon FS, 400 watts from
Sioux Falls SD.

263-MCW kHz, Oct 19 at 0622 UT, NDB CVM, 25 watts from Alton / Civic
Memorial IL. Tuning upward for a change, the only two I log before
offdozing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 approx., Oct 19 at 1425, JBA CW somewhere between
13563 and 13564, finally another HIFER beacon logged, as I was
checking for 13565 K6FRC - not today. Very tough copy, not sure
whether middle letter has 3 or 4 dots, so YHO? NO, YSO per
https://www.lwca.net/sitepage/part15/index.htm
``13563.5~ YSO Yellow Springs OH EM89 New. CW. AJ8S (h 2021/08)``
Axually I was thinking it could be there if ``YSO``.

So then I look up AJ8S at:
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/aj8s

AJ8S USA flag USA
JAMES C BAILEY
YELLOW SPRINGS, OH 45387 USA

including his portrait but none of his YSO rig:
https://cdn-bio.qrz.com/s/aj8s/me.JPG

``I operate a Part 15 cw beason [sic] "YSO" on 13563.5 kHz. Reports
are appreciated. I am a private pilot with an instrument rating but I
am no longer active as we sold our 1965 C172. As a retired engineer, I
enjoy traveling with my wife and have plenty of free time for ham
radio. I hope to hear you on the air. Thanks for reading. 73, Jim.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Mon Oct 18 at 2303, WBCQ with secret replay of first
half of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` from 25 hours ago, this time tunes
of Togo. S9+10 via Maryland remote, SAM mode showing offset minus 71
Hz = 7489.929 kHz; again I am resorting to this since webcast is so
distorted. Cut off at 2330 for bit of music, then spot ad for
refrigerator/freezers at Lowe`s, and immediately into `Camp
Constitution Radio`, far-right nonsense --- which Lowe`s is
sponsoring? By 0033 recheck during `FTIOM` has drifted to customarea
of -103 Hz = 7488.897 kHz; and 0218 rerecheck only 1 Hz lower (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 19 at 0607, zero signal from WBCQ/WLCR, tho
neighbor 9265 WINB with TOMBS is well audible. 9330 still AWOL at
1435. Exasperated Allan Weiner Worldwide had complained that something
new breaks it down every sesquiday = 36 hours. But not a bit about
this situation at his disgraced Twitter, all politix, piety and
promotion. 9330 is back on Oct 19 at 2204, S9+20 in Brazuguese (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Oct 19 at 2312, on WRMI, this week`s `AWR Wavescan`
includes an interview with Kim Andrew Elliott about how he got into
SWL and SWBC, and now all about Radiograms; I think they said it was
originally on KABC? or more likely KBC as in Mighty to which he
contributes; to be continued (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9687.8-USB approx., Oct 19 at 0613, JBA 2-way INTRUDERS,
not Spanish? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2348 UT October 19

Monday, October 18 2021

Logs
** ARMENIA. 13690, Oct 18 at 1402, one of better signals on band at
S4-S6 with flutter, music must be S Asian as this is TWR India in
extremely convoluted language schedule by quarter-hour 1330-1500 and
day-of-week, per Aoki and EiBi on Monday 1400-1415 as Vasavi, abbr`d
VV or [vas], spoken by a megaperson in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Gone
at 1447 recheck, tho supposedly in English at 1430-1500 M-F (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Oct 18 at 0559, RHC English with horrible humbuzz now
rapidly intermittent to boot, and splattering plus/minus 10 at least.
Others: 6100 S9+20/30 but overmodulatedistorted; 6165 best at S9+30;
6000 still on at 0601, S9+20 with hum; 5040 now in Spanish at
S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, Oct 18 at 0558, RNZI achieves S9+20/30 here,
better than before and now sufficient as replacement for 11725; let`s
hope it continue at this level into NAm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11880, Oct 18 until 1457*, RRI IS good and off; at end of
German hour via a funxional Tsiganeshti AM transmitter (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 347-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0618 UT, ND beacon AFK, which is 25
watts from Nebraska City NE, only one logged before I offdoze (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2108 monitoring: Alfredo Cotroneo
explains why WOR was missing from IRRS 7290 & 918 Friday October 15 at
1815: On third Fridays it`s Radio City instead. None of this is shown
on:
https://www.nexus.org/member-services/radio-and-tv/schedules/friday-program-schedule/

Confirmed Sunday October 17 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+22 and 9955,
S9+30/35, both into Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 18 at 0030 on WRMIs: 7730 VG direct;
9395 S9+25 and 9455 much weaker S9/S7 into Knoxville.

Also confirmed after 0130 UT Mon Oct 18 on WRN N American webcast.

Also confirmed from 0302.7 UT Mon Oct 18 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160
minus 53 Hz = 6159.947, S9+10 into Maryland SDR, and much stronger
there than adjacent 6165 RHC. JL ran slightly over, and then Larry
stuck in an ancient clip of me reciting lyrix to a Slinky song; maybe
for an SWL Fest presentation? And then WOR. 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
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

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

** U S A. 7490v, Sunday October 17 at 2230, despite simulWOR on two
WRMIs, I`m listening to second half of `UBMP` on WBCQ -- as usual the
webcast is too distorted, so I`m on a Maryland SDR at S9+15/20 for
better sound. Now it`s a female singer from Togo. I plan to catch the
first half on secret repeat Monday at 2300 on same.

I can`t help but notice that in Synch mode, this SDR shows WBCQ almost
on-frequency! 7490 minus only 0.5 to 1.5 Hz. For weeks it had usually
been around 100 Hz minus. I check further an hour+ later at 2337 but
it`s drifted up +17.5; at 2359, +49; at 0009 Oct 18, +52; at 0028, +56
Hz. By 0215 has faded to JBA but +58 Hz. I wonder if this slow drift
upwards be typical over a few hours of upwarming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 18 at 1453, S7 gospel huxter as WJHR is
rarely audible, and/or rarely on? Glorified ham station (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my 1580, KFCS log, Wayne Heinen replies:

``Glenn writes: “But in Colorado Springs itself on 94.7 there is
K234AJ, 84-watt Christian in English relay of KTLF 90.5. With a
separate but probably previous entry for the same except call as
K290AK which would not be 94.7 at all.”

FCC has K290AK at 105.9 in Colorado Springs….

All the Tigre stations are owned by GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION
except for K276GG. MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY TRANSLATORS, LLC. which appears
to be a leased operation. Colorado Springs and Pueblo are
geographically separated by Cheyenne Mountain so the 94.7 xlator can
easily coexist with Tigre 94.7

Glenn writes: “Where is Beulah? Remote tiny town SW of Pueblo.
Strangely, nothing about KRYE 94.7 here:” {in Wikipedia}

Like many of the other “City of License” locations that the FCC
accepts in suburbs and surrounding grazing lands. It’s a way to
shoehorn in a radio station…

The Tigre brand is GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION whose Tigre is out
of Greeley at KGRE AM & FM and translator K271BN Estes Park are wholly
owned. 73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO``

Logs
** CANADA. Blitzortung shows hardly any storms in N America north of
southern Mexico; so a lot of ND beacons are audible, most of them just
barely, Oct 17 at 0630-0702 UT, thoroly bandscanned originally really
downward:

212-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0702 UT, dash and YGX, 50 watts from Gillam MB

258-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0652 UT, dash and ZSJ, 1000 watts from Sandy
Lake ON -- the only beacon in NAm on 258 per dxinfocentre.com

269-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0650 UT, dash and UDE, 50 watts from Delta MB

284-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0638 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from The Pas
MB

335-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0635 UT, dash and YLD, 1000 watts from Chapleau
ON

340-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0634 UT, dash and YY, 500 watts from Mont Joli
QC

346-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0634 UT, dash and YXL, 500 watts from Sioux
Lookout ON

351-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0633 UT, dash and YKQ, 500 watts from Fort
Rupert / Waskaganish QC

362-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0632 UT, dash and SB, 500 watts from Greater
Sudbury ON

See U S A for a few more interspersed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 17 at 2210, RHC Spanish S9+25 but severely
suptorted; flanked by parasitic JBA spur carriers 11840 & vs jamming
on 11860. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11670, Oct 17 at 2159, REE best here with 2200 TS and dead
air for a while. Just before that, 17855 & 15520 JBA carriers, 11940
still no signal; direct, even tho 11670 is on worst azimuth toward
Africa, but lowest by MUF (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Some ND beacons not often heard but audible during a
bandscan downward Oct 17 at 0630-0702 UT, interspersed among more
Canadians, q.v.:

257-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0653 UT, FWC, 25 watts from Fairfield / Wayne
County IL. I was tuned to 255-USB, still in absence of SW Stillwater
OK. And FWC has a very brief pause between repeats

282-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0639 UT, ROS, 25 watts from Rush City MN. The
only NDB on this frequency anywhere in N America; and a rare new one
for me, I think. Rush City is at exit 159 of I-35, N of MSP.

329-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0636 UT, PMV, 25 watts from Plattsmouth NE

417-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0631 UT, IY, 25 watts from Charles City IA;
better copy tuned to 415-USB

420-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0630 UT, FQ, 25 watts from Fairmont MN

And next daytime: 341-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 1506 UT, OIN, 25 watts from
Oberlin KS - still in absence of local EI Enid - it had a long pause,
so must not hasten across frequency to be sure it`s still AWOL from
its 3 little dits (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2108 monitoring: zzz here past 1300
for the Sunday October 17 at 1230 on WMRI Europe, 9670 via Germany;
did anyone hear it and how was the co-channel QRM??

Confirmed Sun Oct 17 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia 918 kHz, good
into Noale SDR. Next:

2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW; 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
