Saturday, May 30 2020

Logs
** CHINA. 13550, May 30 at 1508, JBA carrier, probably a CNR1 jammer
against Sound of Hope as in Aoki/NDXC; no full WOOB survey today
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, May 30 at 0528, once again what is often the best
modulated and signaled RHC English frequency after 0500 is absent;
still on 6100 > 6145 > 6000 in decreasing order of audibility. And
today 5040 is in correct language, English instead of Spanish, but
always with that squeal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, May 30 at 0535, JBA algo presumed RHC English 2 x 6100
harmonic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 7390, May 30 at 0523, French with self-imposed beepery QRM
--- this hour is RFI itself via Issoudun; meanwhile both ALGERIA relay
frequencies, 7295 and 6125 are without the beepery which usually is to
be heard upon 7295; so they must have swapped the defective
transmitter around (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 11730, May 30 at 0539, VP S1-S2 news in AmeriEnglish, VOA?
0540 switches to French mentioning ``nouvelles catholiques``? So
Vatican, maybe via Madagascar. NO, it`s the French half hour of NHK
via Issoudun -- of course, defaulting to English news at the outset
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13575.047, May 30 at 1427, S3-S5
Chinesish talk. It`s RFA in Cantonese this hour only via TINIAN,
typically askew. Altho Aoki says it`s *jammed, no sign of that. The
ChiCom are not so eager to bother to block broadcasts in insignificant
minolity ranguages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: awake by 1155 UT
Saturday May 30, I hasten to check 9955 whether WOR still be at 1130
on WRMI. NO, replaced by some gospel huxtress, outro as Jack Van Impe
show with address in Troy, Michigan. WRMI skedgrid shows this is
supposed to be on SUNDAYS at this hour, so mistake, or now both? BTW,
I had not noticed that JVI died January 18 this year:

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2020/01/19/jack-van-impe-an-apocalyptic-televangelist-has-died/
But like so many other gospel huxters is embarking on a post-mortem
career, tho in the few minutes I only heard her, his widow Rexella
(how`s that for a gender-busting monicker?)? WOR may have been gone
previously from this slot as I have not checked it every week. Next:

1300 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE

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

** U S A. 17775-, Sat May 30 at 1507, still no signal from KVOH, so
its only airing of `Wavescan` is missed again. I wonder what the
problem be now, same as before disabling it for a biweek until a biday
revival, or something new?

Or is there absolutely no propagation this early? Recheck at 1825, now
it`s on at S9-S6 but undermodulated. There is lots of sporadic E
across the eastern half of USA, very little across the western (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7665-7725, peaking 7700, 9830-9870 peaking 9850, May 30
at 1425, and also circa 9490 at 1435, local noise blobs have shifted
slightly upward by 20-30 kHz (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15825 & 13845, May 30 at 1530 onwards, WWCRs are getting
sporadic E boost well above normal JBA level. 6m Es DX MAP shows heavy
openings across eastern USA, but only a few spots barely exceeding 88
MHz, i.e. into the FMBC band; normally I need more than that to make
it worth checking here. Below that, however, lots of CB channels have
pileups and hets from all those off-frequency AM units, checked at
1830 May 30: 27025, 27085, 27135, 27165 (``eastern Iowa; south shore
of Lake Erie``); NOT 27185! Also 27205, 27215, 27285, 27295, 27345;
and in LSB not USB: 27385, 27395, 27575. 11m CB can really be hopping,
yet hardly any activity on 10 or 15m hambands.

At 1835-1847 I perform a full bandscan of 30-51 MHz, and hear not a
single voice, just tones/birdies here and there probably out of local
computers. This on the R75, but no VHF antenna, just the HF/MF/LF
longwire, which nevertheless previously succeeded in grasping some 6m
phone USB ham DX from Mexico. I suspect the 30-50 MHz band be very
underutilized these days for local 2-way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** CUBA. 13567, 13634; 13767, 13833, 13900, 13967 approx., May 29 at
1420, it`s been a while since RHC has succeeded in spurting multiple
spurblobs out of 13700-AM transmitter, but here they are again, none
especially strong, at 67 kHz intervals. Best heard in AM mode instead
of FM, the closer ones with F# tone and trace of `Sonido Cubano`
music; the top one only a trace. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255-MCW kHz, May 29 at 0622 UT and also at 1418 UT, ND
beacon SW in Stillwater is back! It had vanished April 4 after
reliable groundwave reception day and night, and in nightly chex, no
sign of it since until now. Classaxe.com says it was last logged
2020-04-02, 50 watts, `Blaki`. I wonder if this have anything to do
with the amount of traffic at that airport, or lack of it, in the
interim (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800 // 9395, UT Sat May 30 at 0130, Freedom Synergy
Radio via WRMI, in English - ever heard them in alleged Spanish?

At 0200, FSR continues on 5800 only, this time an interview about how
China plans to take over the world, with the help of the UN.

5010 // 7780 // 9395, May 30 at 0200 Radio Taiwán Internacional has
resumed in Spanish, unlike the first time I checked, May 27, when FSR
usurped/used up all four frequencies at this hour.

So which way is it supposed to be? WRMI websked has a hard time
matching reality details, but it now shows FSR only at 0130 on 5800 &
9395; and no FSR at 0200, just Radio Taiwan, on 5010, 5800 [sic], 7780
& 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 281-MCW kHz, May 29 at 0622, ND beacon DMO --- not Des
MOines as I first guess, but SeDalia, MissOuri, 25 watts. Classaxe.com
has something about it being shut down in Feb, decommissioned in April
and last logged 2020-03-25. Not off any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, May 29 at 1419, HIFER beacon K6FRC is JBA from
Patterson CA. WOR iog member Steve McGreevy says he has set up his own
beacon in Keeler CA:

``Hey, I have a 22m -10 mW quasi-part 15 beacon going in the 22m ISM
band where there are many. The ever weird 13560 has strange carrier
multi-plexi. noises as well as weird dits and other stuff. The CODAR
sweepers have left, yay! So many are running beacons plus/minus 13560,
and I do so most days: 13562.89 (or so) "RR-dash" via a 1/4 wave wire
up 1/6 wave in my shop building/radio-room sub-section - it is in the
sleeping loft and the horiz. wire goes along apex of my shop bldg. -
anyway, it is on a home-brew div. by 2 circuit via a 3rd. overtone
xtal. osc. with a CB-14 xtal., so half CB-14 is its freq., more or
less. LWCA lists these things, linked to HFU and v.v.

CNR-1 is occupying 13570 now, splashing its long-path/short-path
reverbing-LSB modulations upon the 22m experimental ISM band, bummer!
First with the LPE at 16z, than by 1700 getting stronger with
short-path signal. Def. CNR-1 // everything/jammers.``

So I am sure to look for RR and dash circa 13563, but no sign of it
now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: confirmed first US
SWBC, Friday May 29 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair S7-S4 but NO jamming
audible, nor at spotchex nor closing 2229. (9955 was getting jammed
the following hour for Radio Libertad).

Also confirmed UT Sat May 30 at 0130 on WRMIs via Rochester KiwiSDRs:
7780 & 5850 good, 5010 poor. Next:

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

** U S A. 7489.930V, May 29 at 2346, WBCQ off-frequency-minus for a
change, with FKB preacher at S7-S9+10; just prior to AAAWWW, 6159.890v
is also on //, and a JBA 5130 may also be //. 2359 closing always with
wrong WINB frequency for his next airing, ``9625``, runs over into
canned WBCQ ID.

7489.94v, UT Sat May 30 from 0000, WBCQ with `AAAWWW`; as soon as WTO
theme finishes, phone rings and Allan has ``got to take this call``,
so fishes around for some music to play: how inconvenient. Back on at
0011, says it was engineering call. A&A talk for almost half an hour
without phone call interruptions about tech problems: rare May
lightning storm caused close-down -- that much have been Wed circa
2100 when there was no 7490 to run WOR. Call was from Chris at
Continental. Super-Station is off again [yes, 9330 vacant], as the
insulator ring around the PA tube has failed again. Discussing perils
of high voltage - a 4160 V switch; transmitter runs 14 kV @ 50 amps.
``If you get a shock, it`s always your fault``.

Finally at 0038 says trimulcasting on 5130, 6160, 7490; and they
discuss the bane of black flies in Maine summers; also had to
replace a bad tube for 7490 a few days ago; 0044 realizes he had not
forwarded the phone lines, which is why not even Freddy has
interrupted so far, and opens them on the 29th of May, YOOL 2020.
Reads a bit of e-mail. 0054 caller asks what times WORLD OF RADIO is
on? AW can`t remember but cosmikdebris gets a reply in just in time:
Sunday 11 pm EDT on 5130; Wednesday 5 pm on 7490. Very quick prayer
and off in time for Hal Turner at 0200. Here`s John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 and 6160 but was two minutes
later on 5130. Allan and Angela in the studio. Phone rang immediately
and Allan said he had to take the call and put some music on. Allan
back at 0011. Said it was an engineering call that he had to take.
Then he said that Angela was beautiful and it'd been really hot in
Maine this past week, eighties and nineties. He also mentioned that
there had been a shutdown of everything at the station this past week
because of lightning. Then he mentioned that the phone call was from
the manufacturer of the big transmitter as the superstation was down
again. Same problem as twice before, an insulating ring at the bottom
of a tube. Then talk about how easy it is to get killed when working
on the transmitters. Manufacturer said they couldn't send a repair
crew because of the virus and Allan told them to just send him the
material for the ring and he'd fix it himself. He did try that when
the transmitter went down but didn't have the right material and it
only worked for about five minutes before going down again. Then a lot
of talk about this particular transmitter. Talk abut Angela's new
gardening adventures around the superstation and then Angela's
complaints about black flies. They also recently had a problem with a
tube on the 7490 transmitter and had to replace it. Some talk about
the unrest in the country and then some virus talk. Reading of emails
at 0052 and a phone call at 0053. Back to some of the email at 0056.
Very short closing prayer at 0059 and off the air at 0100. John,
Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, May 29 at 0614, S9+30/40 of dead air from WWCR instead
of Brother Scare while he still rants on 3215; sometimes it`s vice
versa. 5935 remains on with DGS/PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 17775, May 29 at 1454, zero signal from KVOH: must
have broken down again after resuming on May 27 & 28.

Only signals on band: 17615+ Sa`udi, 17690 JBA ChiCom jamming and/or
VOA Tibetan via Lampertheim, Germany; and just going off by 1459,
17770 JBA, Turkey in Arabic listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7680, 7315-7330, May 29 at 1424, crackly noise blobs are
still around here, and 9830 at 2001 check. I now have a trouble report
into OG&E and maybe they`ll get to it next week (Glenn Hauser, Enid
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6023.0, May 28 at 0550, JBA carrier at unusual spot.
Maybe it`s Radio Avogadro? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. The extremely distorted blobs previously found worst
around 7330 and 7680 are gone at 0545 check May 28; but they are back
at next check 1432 circa: 10545, 10185, 9830, 9470, 7680, 7505, 7330,
6970; 8038, 8405, 8765, 9115, 9295. Listening in FM or AM mode, they
include a big hum, and surely no relation to talk modulation.

Walkabout the block circa 00 UT May 29 with PL-880 portable tuned to
7680 finds no particular peak other than near power lines or electric
meters. I`ll have to sic OG&E on them. Next one peaks closer to 7320
than 7330, so 7335 can be heard on USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
