Glenn Hauser logs May 6-7-8, 2021  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 08 2021

** CHINA [non]. 15700, May 7 at 1508, CRI Plus English relay via CUBA
is still gone, as it was on May 4 & 5, not checked on 6 (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 15140, May 6 after 19 UT check, this RHC English is missing,
nor is 15370 on with it as happened recently. 2-hour English blox
would not fit into 1-hour slot, I fear. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2085)

** CUBA. 6145, May 7 at 0559, RHC English is back on this alternate
after keeping to 6165 for quite a while, good S7-S9. 6165 and 5040 are
off; 6000 undermodulated; 6060 buzzy; 6100 sufficient. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE [non]. 7780, May 6 at 2000, WRMI audible poorly via VA SDR
starting Radio for Peace International hour as sked on Thursdays.
Altho the title is in English, this emission like the others is really
in French, except for sign-on in French, English, Spanish, German,
Italian; and occasional IDs in English which they prefer as station
name even tho not broadcasting any further in English. I certainly
have nothing against French but broadcasts via WRMI would be more
effective in English; why not? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9955, Fri May 7 at 2203, a VERY familiar voice
in Spanish -- soy yo, it`s me! An old episode of `Radio-Enlace` is
being played back, until 2215, all about the pirate La Voz de las
Cañas, Jaime y Alfonso and many other voices including the
perpetrators; from 1988 it lasted until 21 enero 1990, with clips of
it including final frequency as 5067.9. At 2215 `Frecuencia al Dia`
program ID and onward to Célio Romais` DX Clube do Brasil report.

This is an early airing of a new week`s FAD. The full skedgrud times
on WRMI which would be repeating this are: Fri 2200 9955; Tue 2130
7780, Thu 0000 7730, Thu 1300 9955, Fri 0330 5985, Fri 1030 5850. Also
on WWCR Fri & Mon 2100 15825; KVOH UT Sun 0000 9975. FAD own website
sked is VERY outdated, no resemblance to the WRMI times, and as if
XERMX still exist!

Current home page shows pennant of LV Cañas, and audio link to May 7
show. At start, includes three separate clips of yours truly:
It was partly an experiment to catch DXers making false reports.
Spoiler: the name came from Madrid slang for beer (Guillermo Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, May 7 at 0557, VON drummy IS, so back on 41m
tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, May 7 at 0354, anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH
with Josiah intonation, S6-S7 via MO SDR but mostly unreadable vs
noise level of S5. Ex-7470, as Ron Howard noted last night. SAM shows
only -6-7-8 Hz carrier offset. 0356 I think he mentions ``Churchill
Downs``; how is that relevant? Still past 0400, slightly more legible
when tuned in USB-N mode. I also try remotes in AZ and BC where signal
is no better. 0421 his signature themetune and off circa 0422*. Around
midday Sat or Sun, seek him on 25m, as last week 11905 (Glenn Hauser,

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, May 8 at 0108 tune-in, immediately hear
Ball Smacker Radio ID and SFX, song; S9/+10 vs storm crashes. Is
regular Friday nite sked at 7 pm CST. More here:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.116-AM, May 8 at 0110, raucous pirate music at
S7-S9. These say it`s Captain Morgan Shortwave:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri May 7 at 2200, REE token M/W/F English holds up
VG here S9+10/20 until 2230, >15520 >11940 >11685. After news about
COVID, feature is part 2 on US/Spain relations during Cold War,
notably accidental dropping of 3 H-bombs on Spain, and another into
ocean on Jan 17, 1966y. US and Franco government conspired to downplay
radiation danger altho of course they did not explode.

Let`s hope MUF favor 17855 rest of summer, rather than generally
unusable in April. We should still have four SW/frequency seasons, two
months around each equinox, four around each solstice, once designated
M, J, S and D; but that was just too much trouble for the managers,
regardless of propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 7 at 2158, VOT IS audible S8-S9 vs noise level S7
and undermodulated, unusable. Even tho the RTTY QRM now can be evaded
by LSB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WOR 2085 is available as of 0044 UT Friday May 7

5850 VG direct; 7780 S9+15/25 into VA SDR.

usual steady S9+18 into local range IW3HBX SDR. Stayed on after 2100

internet delay (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), May 8 from 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`, in & out
chex. First half mostly about whether ham stations of 1 kW or less
could pose a radiation risk. 0029, datestamp as 7 May YOOL 2021. Larry
---, a pirate accomplice of his youth, has died; reminiscences with
J.P. calling in. 0052-0059 reading more items than usual from just-out
Free Radio Weekly, including Voice of Communism, never crediting the
reporter, in that case, me. Still until 0100 running over, prayer, so
Hal Turner has to wait until 0102 JIP he`s already started. Here`s
John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 with no signal on 6160. Allan
and Angela open with talk about the old TV show Hogan's Heroes as
they're watching all of the episodes. Talk quickly morphs into talk
about the cancel culture, masks etc. Phone call from Kracker at 0012
talking about the vaccine to begin with. Phone call from Mr. Mike at
0017 talking about some new Ham radio regulations going into effect
and that there is an explanation on the NearFest webpage. Then into
talk about regulations for the next NearFest in October. A quick check
says that 6160 is now also broadcasting the program. Then Allan
started talking about his early days as a pirate in his teens which
led into informing us of the death of one his friends who helped him
run the pirate stations. Allan then calls JP and they talk about their
old friend and some of the things he used to get up to.

Reading of emails at 0053 beginning with the latest Free Radio Weekly.
Cut off at 0100 in the middle of the FRW with no closing prayer. John,
Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 7 at 0601, no signal again from R. Vanuatu X 3
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

0630UTC on Fri May 7th. (1030pm Thu. May 6th local time, about an hour, 90
minutes before local sunset)

Started hearing some halfway decent fade ups with Clube Do Para's telltale
audio.. sounds like heavily compressed/processed and got some speech that
would be easily understandable by a native speaker.

Glenn Hauser logs May 6, 2021  View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 06 2021


Published by early UT Thursday each week, the original complete logs
in one merged alfabetical file:
The April 30-May 5 edition:

** CUBA. 6087-6113, May 6 at 0610, RHC English splashing out over ~26
kHz range from 6100 which is S9+20/30. 6165 at S9+10/20 is almost as
bad, 6153-6177 ~24 kHz. 5040 & 6000 are off, 6060 is OK. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. About Bayto Yaikl mentioning PBS Frontline: it`s
this week`s new edition, `Escaping Eritrea`, which was not yet on PBS
website when I checked.

It seems they do not utter the word ``Bayto`` on the air, as Ivo
Ivanov reports: ``FRANCE Reception of Dimtse (Bayto) Yiakl, USA at new
time and on new frequency on May 5:
1630-1700 on 11760 ISS 250 kW / 125 deg to EaAf Tigrinya Wed/Sat, very
good via SDR Tambov, RUS

Announced on the first video at 00.47 sec. Azi Dimtse Yiakl America
and then time and frequency`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, May 6 at 0627, JBA carrier from presumed R.
Kiribati; none others noted, not even 1098 Marshalls (Glenn Hauser,

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 11710, May 6 at 0612, no sign of stilted
French from VOK like heard on May 3, so maybe back on correct
frequencies. The weak 11680 signal both then and now could be VOHA
Zambia as well as P`yongyang. At 1409 May 6, however, 11710 VOK with
scheduled stilted French is S9-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: Richard Lemke,
Alberta, confirms Wed May 5 at 1030 on WRMI 5850; as well as many
other airings. I confirm final repeat on WRMI: UT Thu May 6 at 0130 on
5010, S9/+10 into Bonaire SDR.

A NEW time starts this week on WRMI, UT Saturday 0130 on 9395; that`s
8:30 pm CDT Friday. WRMI-6 is on 355 degree antenna, NNW. New WOR 2085
should be ready by early UT Friday May 7 for first broadcasts on WRMIs
5850 & 7780, expected not to be pre-empted this week (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 7730, May 6 at 0615, WRMI is back on after missing two
overnights; TOMBS music but modulation keeps cutting off and on. Same
problem on 5850 & 5950, but 5890 WWCR intact. 5850 unusually has a SAH
as if two transmitters be competing. Also, Jeff White says 7570 will
be back on next week, mostly Brother Stair (Glenn Hauser, OK)

** U S A. Re NPR at 50: Rodney Johnson, Plymouth, replies on WOR iog:
``Greetings From Minnesota! I heard the NPR treatment of the event via
podcast. It was well worth the almost hour in length.

73s http://swldx.tumblr.com --Rodney`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 6 at 0611, NO signal from R. Vanuatu X 3.
Conditions seem normal with 11725 NZ, and 11895 presumed RFA Saipan
the other significant 25mb signals. Some editors throw out my non-logs
like this as if they were not newsworthy! China not audible either on
11835 -- Ron Howard indicates it too is irregular (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 9385, May 6 at 1412, open carrier S9+10/S9; likely WEWN
night frequency not turned off; testing? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11523-CW, May 6 at 1331, long JBA automated CW message,
eventually restarting with VVVs, but too weak to detect any DE ID. Not
in EiBi; UDXF iog has numerous recent 11523 logs without specific ID,
some as QSX sent on other frequencies by Russian Navy, or earlier as
ALE by British Army from Muscat, Oman (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
