Tuesday, March 21 2023

Hauser
** CUBA. 12120, March 21 at 0646, RHC Spanish, hefty S9+10, enough to
shoulder aside the heavy RTTY infesting nearby. Of course, it`s 2 x
6060. But undermodulated and with CODAR QRM. I`ve often hunted for
this without any success, so now wonder if more than accidental
emission. Normally the most likely 2x from Cuba is 12000. Also
possible: 12200 & 12330 worth checking when the 6100 & 6165
fundamentals be on, or should be on. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5960, March 21 at 0000, XJPBS joining CNR1 for
morning national anthem, but at 0002 also a clip of the Soviet Hymn, a
bit jarring, but that`s just covering Xi`s visit to Putin; via
UTwente, continued from TURKEY log. Standard denunciation (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 11800.085V, March 21 at 0650, weak S6/S9 signal way
off-frequency, i.e. DW in Hausa, at 0630-0700 via Issoudun: a site
emitting many imprecise frequencies, and this one is also varying
slightly as I try to measure it. These stick out in my bandscans at
1-kHz intervals in USB, producing a rumble or some pitch other than
1000 Hz when tuned 1 kHz below nominals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 12050-12055-12060 DRM, Tue March 21 at 1540, surprised to
find DRM noise here, and also no AM signal on 12050, the last
remaining frequency of WEWN. Wonder if this be no coincidence, WEWN
cooperating with the DRM or possibly even emitting it? By the time I
check remotes in various parts of USA with DRM capability, nothing by
1552. Only then do I check the listings: none such in HFCC B22. But
EiBi & Aoki both show KTWR in DEM on 12055 in English at 1245-1300 &
1515-1545, both Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15530.042, March 21 at 1533, hymn S7/S9: KSDA at 1530-1600 in
English or Tibetan per day of week. Unusual to find this one skewed so
far (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, March 21 at 0706, JBA carrier from R.
Kiribati, only 9/kHz split in MW bandscan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460, March 21 at 1537, two signals beating,
S8/S9. Seems the Recep Turkish jammer and Dengê Welat are sticking
here rather than 17470 or 17480. Site for D.W. unclear; latest EiBi
shows UZBEKISTAN for all three, which makes sense propagationally, but
not frequencially since it`s no longer minus ~250 Hz or so; Aoki
misses them completely. Besides too-close Armenia, also possible per
wolfie: Bulgaria, Tajikistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MONGOLIA. Re last report under UZBEKISTAN, aside about VOM
frequencies, a correxion from Ron Howard about the 09-11 UT broadcast:
``Thanks very much to Glenn, for noticing my strange posting. I had
the wrong frequency for the Voice of Mongolia. I definitely heard them
on 12084.87, NOT 12014.87. Very sorry for my mistake!`` - so the
listed schedule is correct -- except for being way off-frequency in
both cases. I wish everyone were so diligent in issuing correxions
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 20 at *2255 on, VOR covering BBCWS OMAN with IS
& English IDs. By 2311 and for rest of hour, heavy pumping fast fading
SAH, presumably caused by XJPBS now also upon slightly different
frequency - but see below. Via UTwente displaying 5959.999+, quite
unusual to swerve to the minus side. 2316 ending `Review of the
Turkish Press`; 2319 salute to search & rescue teams from abroad. I`m
checking in & out: 2331 outro `Feeling Supreme/The Healing Supring`;
2332 with-you-every-hour promo, song; 2337 always-by-your-side promo;
``La Bamba`` theme to `New Day, New Choices` about the art form of
dioramas; 2343 always-with-you promo, music; 2347 a-b-y-s promo; 2348
`Did You Know That` about an Istanbul top restaurant whose chef comes
from Finland, Sweden, USA; 2351 a-b-y-s promo again; 2352 s/off; 2354
IS to 2355* uncovering XJPBS: but even after reloading also displays
as 5959.999+ so that does not explain the SAH. By last check 0028,
however, that has drifted up to 5960.001 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, March 20 at 0601, HIFER beacon with continuous
K6FRC IDs
from Patterson CA; vs CODAR. Must be very first time I`ve heard it
outside the usual post-sunrise window around 14/16 UT, suspecting it`s
not 24h. It was stronger then than JBA at 1504 vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR) [My original report was lacking the ID!]

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2182 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday March 21 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9+20 into Maryland SDR, after
Jeff`s ``Turmoil`` auto-interjexion. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035 USB [low power]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Like our website, a noncommercial service for which financial support
is appreciated; this week from Joe Caberlin, VE1EJ, Port Colborne ON,
for some US$ to
Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA,
preferably by MO or check on a US bank.

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, March 21 at 0100, WTWW-2 is still missing, as George
McClintock updates me: altho he can operate it remotely, he has been
recovering from a virus or something for the past two weeks, quite ill
at home - and also a week without power following the windstorm; still
trees across the street. Meanwhile the station still needs a *lot* of
work; I suspected he was axually somewhat enjoying the
troubleshooting, repairing challenges, when he can get to the site.
Says an insulator broke at the end of an antenna wire, called a
Steotype, or something like that. #2 transmitter runs at 70 kW, but
Ted left with the harmonic filter not working [tho I never heard any
second harmonix from it]. Parts to bring the #1 up from 70 to a
minimum of 90 kW were ordered and supposed to be shipped from China
three weeks ago; follow-up found they were not shipped until last
week, so wait another week. Hoping that a sale will go thru but not
firm yet. Buyer will gain among everything else, at least twelve high
power tubes. Each transmitter needs only one, but Ted had been running
the filaments 24 hours, wearing them down, all of them only partly
depleted. Come to think of it, everything was done wrong. George is at
least making sure by remote control that the filaments are off when
not transmitting. #1 and #3 are in pieces. #3 driver tube is no good.
A fan was cooling a balun, but fan`s power was not wired in. A
frequency coil was missing, so had to recalibrate. Currently concerned
with fixing the automatic gate to the property (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 21 at 0715, S4/S6 carrier from R. Vanuatu,
seems dead air as often reported now after cyclone damage. At 0612,
Gary Pence was hearing carrier, no modulation into Oahu SDR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7720 & 7680, March 21 at 1529, JBA talk, seem to be real
as still there with preamps off, do not compute as strong signals
mixing with my two local MW signals on 960 & 1390, nor of course as
harmonix. Nothing listed on either in EiBi & Aoki. Possibly remnant of
ChiCom jamming against new SOHs?

7665, March 21 at 1530, OTOH is jamming vs RFA Tajikistan. Also JBA
carriers this late on 7390 NZ remnant [which in a few days for A23
changes to 7440]; 7365 & 7300, China and/or jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [non]. Now that we are equinoxial, chances for
nightmiddle propagation on higher bands increase: March 21 at 0643, I
detect two JBA carriers on 16m: 17640 listed as BBC English via
ASCENSION; and weaker 17730, SAUDI ARABIA in Arabic, the OSOBs (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1957 UT March 21

Monday, March 20 2023

Hauser
** CUBA. 890, March 20 at 0252 UT, Spanish music, ``en la Habana``,
hardly any signal from WLS, on E/W antenna, must be auroral
conditions, WCCO also attenuated; then introduces a Norwegian
orchestra to play a tune ``Cuban --`` something titled in English. No
doubt the 200 kW Radio Progreso at Chambas, but no SW // 4765 to
compare (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, March 20 at 0225, RHC S9+40/45 but huge humbuzz atop
English modulation. The hum may be local as I also hear it on some
other strong signals, but not the buzz. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, March 20 at 0237, S9+20/25 of dead air, no doubt RHC.
Wolfie thinx this replace 6165 English, ever on air any more?
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, March 20 at 0240, S9+18 of dead air from RHC where
something`s always wrong. Also DA of S9+20 at 0606, thus for 3+ hours?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11850, March 20 at 0240, RHC S6/S7, just barely
modulated as standard for this frequency, flanked by JBA spur carrier
on 11840; and on 11860 QRMing the jamming against nothing and
something else, presumably Sa`udi`s Yemen surrogate. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 15050, March 20 at 0219, algo S1/S2 to S3/S4. Must be AIR
Indonesian hour 0130-0230 via Bengaluru. I continue to marvel how
aeronauticals have not driven broadcasters out of their band (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, March 20 at 0229, live DJ seems quite a
character, S9+10, says may not stay on much longer, a tune; 0232
recheck just in time for ``thanks for putting up --- ID?, over and
out``. These show it`s Pigs Knuckles, until 0232*, several other
reports:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,111514.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475 AM, March 20 at 0234, Station YHWH, earnestly
questioning Christianity, S9+15/20 undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 13865, March 20 at 0559 open carrier, 0600 BBC
with `Newshour`. One hour only relay via Pinheira, and strangely
enough, not noticeably off-frequency. Signal on band second only to
13755 NZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, March 20 at 0601, HIFER beacon with continuous IDs
from Patterson CA; vs CODAR. Must be very first time I`ve heard it
outside the usual post-sunrise window around 14/16 UT, suspecting it`s
not 24h. It was stronger then than JBA at 1504 vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2182 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
March 19 at 2100.5 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, S9+15 into
nearby Noale SDR above lite music CCI presumably Smooth Radio,
Brighton, England.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 20 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into
Louisiana SDR, still blasted by noise first 14 seconds, and bits
later.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 20 from 0303, ex-0400v, after dead air
from 0301 tune-in, S9+5 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160-. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035 USB [low power]

** U S A. 9380-9410, March 20 at 0610, splatter range out of WRMI-6,
9395 with TOMBS at S9+10/20 somewhat overmodulating. Not as bad as
9455 was recently (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Monday March 20 at 0238, S9+25/30 of gospel huxter,
so KVOH manages to be on air at least partly this weekend (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, March 20 at 0250 UT, dominant signal on E/W antenna is
Spanish ad citing 678 area code phone number twice. Therefore it has
to be WLBA, Gainesville GA, a 10 kW ND daytimer! And no KLEY KS
cheater audible for a change. Overcomes KWKH which is not much at
night thisaway.

New on me, but Terry Krueger, FL, reported: ``1130 GEORGIA WLBA
Gainesville 1038 12/18/22 The perpetual overnight cheater, parallel
1600 WAOS overnight power cheater, with the usual Mexi-tunes format``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1150, March 20 at 0249 UT, S9 of dead air on E/W antenna,
S9+28 on N/S wire, no doubt the dominant night station here, KSAL
Salina KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1440, March 20 at 0248 UT tune-across, ``1440 KPUR`` and Ag
update, i.e. Amarillo TX in its current farm format. No ghost from
WGEM to conflict with it any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN [and non]. 12084.844, March 20 at 1510, weak carrier
with flutter, I first thought must be V of Mongolia, always
off-frequency -- but Aoki shows that at 09-11 only, while 1500-1530 is
AWR Tamil via Tashkent, which is also way off-frequency. At 13-15 VOM
is supposed to be on 12015- which is also offset minus. However, Ron
Howard just reported March 17 that it was on 12014.87 until 1100
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9340 USB, March 20 at 0608, one side of 2-way, including
whistling, laughing in unknown language (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2253 UT March 20

Sunday, March 19 2023

Hauser
** CANADA. 335 MCW kHz, March 19 at 0724 UT, dash and YLD, 1000-watt
ND beacon at Chapleau ON, which https://dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm says
is ``to be decommissioned 2023-04-20``.

351 MCW kHz, March 19 at 0723 UT, dash and YKQ, 500-watt ND beacon at
Fort Rupert / Waskaganish QC, both JBA. 350, RG, OKC is still absent
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 1610 kHz, March 19 at 0721 UT, dead air from CHHA
encountered on my 9/kHz TA/TP bandscan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9490, March 19 at 0716, S7 pulse jamming against nothing,
long after Radio República via RMI via France is finished. A night or
two ago, no such overrun was heard. HFCC A23 shows: RMI Spanish at
01-02 daily, extended to 03 on Mon/Tue/Wed, to 04 on Sun/Thu/Fri/Sat;
yet NHK via France 9490 daily at 03-05: something`s got to give. Lhasa
also on 9490 02-10 daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, March 19 at 1520, Sunday-only Esperanto from RHC is
S9/+10 but just barely modulated; while // 15140 is S8/9+10 but merely
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460, March 19 at 1517, S8/9+10, two clashing
with fast SAH, at least one with music, nothing on 17470 or 17480, so
presumed Turkey jammer and Dengê Welat both here now. Wolfgang Büschel
agreed much earlier on WOR iog at 0940 and thinx DW now via ARMENIA,
apparently because it`s even .000, not way-off-frequency-minus as with
Uzbekistan, while jammer was 17460.014. Seems to me both Armenia and
Emirler are too close to Kurdistan on 17+ MHz, skipping over target.
Theoretically, if DW were at an optimum skip distance, the higher band
would be advantageous over the domestic-site jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** PERU. 4820, new SW in Perú, Radio Integridad --- Re on WOR iog:
``Peru. 4820. Radio Integridad. Mar 17. 1029-1110 UT. ID: "Radio
Integridad" and program "En esto pensad" + songs+ ID: "Red radio
integridad, la voz que glorifica a Dios" + Songs and so on. 45444 to
35333. Audio:
https://youtu.be/cqkqZaywJ-A
(Claudio Galaz, Receiver: XHDATA D-808; Antenna: Long Wire, QTH:
Ovalle, IV Región, Chile)``

Aha, that correlates with my unID JBA carrier on 4820, otherwise
unaccounted for, March 17 at 0632, when 4810 presumed R. Logos was
also on and there was no STANAG noise in between.

Tonight, UT March 19 before 0300, still no STANAG! IIRC that was
Martinique? 4810 is on but no 4820. After 0300, 4810 also off. At 0635
check, 4820 has a weak bonker! CODAR swirshing extends no higher than
4812 so bothers 4810, not 4820.

I can`t make much out of his 3-minute recording, lots of QRM and QSB;
not even an ID but maybe in there somewhere; toward the end they were
talking about Barcelona. Venezuela, or Spain?

Accompanying his YT clip:

``Shortwave Radio Archive 1 day ago ¿De qué país es esta estación?
Nunca he oído hablar de él. ¿Supongo que se ha activado recientemente
en esta frecuencia?``

``Claudio Galaz - Diexismo. 1 day ago De Perú. No sé el lugar exacto,
pero es probable que sea desde el Sur. Esta emisora se parece bastante
a la desaparecida, Radio Chaski.``

No 4820 Peru in WRTH 2022 or 2023; nor 2005: back then there were
Peruvians on 4824, 4826.

I searched out their website:
https://rri.pe/

Includes a map with several FM stations, MW 700 in Lima, which WRTH
has as 25 kW; and one SW, 5980 in Cuzco, once a favorite DX catch, R.
Chaski, with precessing autocutoff times, but long gone.

Also found this, again with no 4820 mentioned:

https://www.facebook.com/BaptistMidMissions/posts/red-radio-integridad-the-radio-network-started-by-stan-and-ruth-templeton-and-th/4214542148565605/

``Baptist Mid-Missions April 8, 2021 · Red Radio Integridad, the radio
network started by Stan and Ruth Templeton and their Peruvian
coworkers, is blanketing Peru with the Gospel. Their new station in
Moquegua is now on the air reaching 60,000 people. Through help from
generous donors, the Templetons bought 10 new transmitters, which
enables them to equip their other in-progress stations. This radio
ministry has introduced and reconnected Peruvians to the Word of God
in a hard season of isolation due to the pandemic``

WRTH on disgraced FB had something about this last December 9, but I
can`t dig that deep into it. Can someone retrieve that? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, March 19 at 1511, K6FRC, HIFER beacon in CA
claiming only 1.8 milliwatts is JBA at the only daypart it`s ever
audible. Far stronger and common in daytime on 28300 with as much as
100 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2182 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday March 19 at 0035 the 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into Maryland
SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 19 at 0356, about 6 minutes into, so
started circa 0350 = 35 minutes after nominal 0315 per DST timing, on
WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, VG S9+20 into nearby Warrenton SDR.

** U S A. 9425-9485, March 19 at 0714, WRMI-5, 9455 is splattering out
to +/- 30 kHz, as has happened before; now during legacy Spanish hour
of Fámily Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 19 at 0659-0709+, JBA carrier with flutter or
maybe two beating, presumed RV still sticking here rather than
3945/7890/11835 after 0700 when nothing heard on the harmonix (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4825 USB, March 19 at 0658, JBA 2-way seems tonal
language, maybe Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** ALGERIA. 9500, March 18 at 0402, S9/+15 into Maryland SDR, sounds
like a national anthem; then at 0405, series of IDs twice in
something, English as ``Holy Qur`an Radio, Algeria``, French, Arabic.
Maybe the only/best time for such ID? Meanwhile I was also checking
5900 and heard nothing but TOMBS via Bulgaria. 9500 still on with HQ
at 0615. So it appears last night`s HQ on 5900 was a mistake, digits
reversed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, Sat Mar 18 at 2226, LRA36 is on
talking about Antártida, 2245 music, 2248 RAE multi-lingual IDs, then
LRA36, RNASG ID as ``15476``; 2250 seems live ID, then attributes
LRA36 to province of Tierra del Fuego; contact info, ``Uniendo
Voces``, acknowledging listeners. S7/S9 into Uruguay SDR. At 2335 I
have a trace direct, S5 = noise level. At least two guys keep
chatting, also mention Radio Club Quilmes -- that`s at the national
university in greater BsAs, somehow involved in these produxions.
Manuel Méndez, Spain says it started at *2059; will this be for
another six hours? Still going past 2400+. But back on original
frequency instead of recent 15474.98, presumably different
transmitters (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, March 18 at 0656, RHC in English, S9+10 direct,
undermodulated, and nowhere else on 5, 6, 10, 11 MHz bands.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, March 18 at 0326, Station YHWH is on with
signature anti-Christ intonations of Josiah, S9/+5 into Utah SDR
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4015 USB, March 18 at 0327, S5 music into Utah SDR,
no doubt Russian ethnic pirate Vostochnaya Zvezda. After multiple TDOA
runs, Lucas Bandura is convinced this is in southern Arizona near
Mexico. HF Underground does not want any pirate DF/TDOA info to be
posted there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 18 at 2300, VOT English manages to be on air
today, VG S9+30/40 into UTwente. News starts with Turkey approving
Finland for NATO membership following visit by Finnish president;
still not satisfied with Sweden. 2313 now with JBA CCCCCCI
understation, feature on Traveling I have not encountered before,
about visiting historic city of Artvin, near Georgian border at east
end of Black Sea coast. Over already at 2318, to be continued next
week, `The Captain`s Log`. 2319, `Whipping Piles` - Gripping Files?
about a national treasure in literature whose name I can`t copy tnx to
the heavily-accentedess. Maybe it`s Yas[h]ar Kemal, after some
searching, who was Kurdish originally. `Turkey`s Geo-marked Products`
ends at 2337. Music; 2350 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2353 s/off for
the 1330, 1930 and 0430 airings only, as if this one did not exist.
2355 IS. 2356 restart IS with German IDs twice per minute. Still going
at 2400 timesignal and opening spurious German - for how much longer?

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2182 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday March 18 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/30 direct.

Also confirmed UT Saturday March 18 at 0400 ex-0500 on WBCQ Radio
Angela, 5130 - 22 Hz, S9+10 into Maryland SDR = 5129.978.

** ALGERIA. 5900, March 17 at 0633, S9+20/30 of Qur`an, certainly not
TOMBS via Bulgaria as has been here. Presumably NF for one of the
Algerian sites: I vaguely recall they`ve been on 5900 before, but
can`t find a report. Soon YL talk in Arabic before more music. Scan of
all bands upward to 13 MHz does not find another one to make //. Not
on 9500, so I wonder if accidentally they reversed the digits? We
shall hear if this recur. But 9500 supposedly at 00-06 only.

I`m checking 5900 following this from Jim Renfrew, NY, at 0415:
``Radio Coran 5900 --- Glenn, while attempting to listen to the
theological renditions of Brother Stair on 5900 khz from Kostinbrod,
Bulgaria, on March 17, at 0305 UTC, I instead found a Koranic program
of some kind - very strong - with Overcomers way underneath (and
parallel to 6160 WBCQ). At 0400 the 5900 station has a national anthem
- familiar, but I can't place it. Ah, there it is, at 0406 an English
ID "Holy Koran Radio, Algeria" and the same in French, then back to
Koranic readings. Frequency appears to be unlisted in WRTH and recent
NASWA bulletins. Seems parallel to 7440, but weak there and hard to be
certain. Brother Stair, tonight (from beyond the grave, I suppose) is
all about the appearance of "Planet X" and how the Norwegians have a
plan to rescue their population. Jim Renfrew, Clarendon NY`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, March 17 at 0637, RHC Spanish not English, S9+10
undermodulated, only channel still on. Something`s always wrong at
RHC. The Other Side:

``'Elections' in Cuba: False Representation and Tons of Propaganda ---
The fact that the list of candidates includes people from all the
provinces and municipalities does not mean that all the territories
are actually represented in the Cuban Parliament.
Lucía Alfonso Mirabal, La Habana 17 Mar 2023 - 14:48 CET...``
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1679060890_45890.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 24940 USB, March 17 at 2101, CO8LY calling QRZ and having no
problem working lots of Yanquis. IIRC he`s a fixture on 12m. But I
last logged him exactly one biyear ago, March 17, 2021 on 18137,
Eduardo in Santiago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, March 17 at 0652, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati
and nothing else in 9/kHz splits; glad to detect again after several
nights. Gary Pence, KM5X, TX, says, ``Kiribati is S8 at NH6XO in Oahu
at 0728z`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 17460.000+, March 17 at 1825, a speech, in
Turkish? Maybe it`s Recep. S9+45 into UTwente, with some roaring in
background. No het and no other signals in the area now. After long
speech, 1842 songs start. Still going past 1900, but now with a fast
rippling SAH from an understation several Hz off, not 250 Hz off as
previously from Tashkent.

As reported March 15, Dengê Welat started using 17470- via Uzbekistan,
hit by jamming March 16, and earlier today was playing cat-and-mouse
with Turkish jammer jumping around 10 kHz intervals. Jose Jacob,
India, also reported AWR in Hindi on unlisted 17460 until 1545 switch
to another language - wonder if that were a mistake at Tashkent?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 28171 CW, March 17 at 2056, XE1FAS/B, 5-watt beacon in
Puebla, as logged before on Feb 20; see that report for more details.
Many more beeping up to 28300; I cannot spend all the time it would
take to chase all those down, but doubt many or any would be from rare
places (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4015 USB, March 17 at 0406, JBA music into Missouri
remote. I`m checking because of this on the WOR iog a few minutes
earlier at 0402 from Lucas Bandura in BC:

``Re: [WOR] Vostochnaya Zvezda (Eastern Star) on 4015 USB 24/7 --- He
was absent from March 13-15 (UTC), but returned on March 16. Playing
what I think is Russian metal now. Best heard on the KFS SE KiwiSDR in
California.``

That followed up his original post at 0807 UT March 12: ``This pirate
has been on 4015 USB non-stop for a few days now. It seems he is
associated with Radio Pushka (now inactive on shortwave) but it is not
the same station. I have been logging this on the HFU but so far only
Token has heard it direct (from his QTH in California). Radio Pushka
claimed to be in Arizona and this station seems to be from somewhere
very close to where Radio Pushka is. Best reception on a KiwiSDR I
have found is the KFS SE in California. Maybe someone here can hear
this station on 4015 USB? Even here in British Columbia there is no
sign of it.``

I monitor it further for the next bihour, changing to the SE antenna
of KFS remote, fortunately since 7 of the 8 RX are tied up by those
dratted WSPR daemons, each tuned to a different hamband. The one
already on 4015 is from Chase BC, likely Lucas himself, so I camp on
him, and soon take it over when he quits. Thus it`s S6/S8 with nothing
but pop music, most of it instrumental and not recognized; occasional
lyrix I cannot discern if in Russian or English. Never any IDs or
any other announcements, but several times per hour plays the nostalgic
10-note Mayak IS twice on chimes, ``Midnight in Moscow`` or more
properly, ``Moscow Nights``, at: 0416, 0432, 0450, 0456, 0503, 0512,
[I`m away a while], 0545. Still going at 0607 when I quit. Gary Pence
found northern Utah remote was better.

There was no ToH ID at 0500; at 0537 I get a trace of music direct vs
S9 storm noise from central TX across northern LA into MS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, 9690, 11940, 11685, Friday March 17 at 2304, token
English from SNR, all four on into Virginia SDR. 12030 ME is slightly
better than 9690 NAm, while 11685 Af faces usual RTTY QRM. Justin
Coe`s feature is an interview at a Madrid gallery about the painter
Lucian Freud. Totally invisible on the radio! So I look on the web.
They admit he was grandson of Sigmund but supposedly not influenced by
him. Gallery online shows he specialized in portraits, and *all of
them UGLY!* Enough of that. Turkey fails to broadcast today so I have
no choice but listening to Spain. BTW, A-23 channels will again be
17855, 15520, 17715, 11670 respectively. Cuba registered 15520 and
might collide until 2100, but Spainglés will then be at 2200 M/W/F
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, March 17 at 2300, VOT English for us fails
today, no signal even unto UTwente. Later at 2312 & 2323 chex,
occupied only by Chinese from XJPBS, Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of
imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems. So I
may freely listen to simulSpain, q.v. but it`s ugly (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 365 MCW kHz, March 17 at 0658 UT, AA, 100-watt ND
beacon at Fargo / Harwoood ND is JBA vis TX/AR storm noise. Only a
couple of the regular Canadians also (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 26110 NBFM, March 17 at 1526 UT, KMK282 with 8:26 timecheck,
S7 into Missouri SDR. Despite NBFM mode, in SAM tuning displays
carrier minus 54 Hz, = 26109.946 kHz. Fluff show IDs at 1530 as ``This
is Good Day``; as on the multi-channel CBS Sacramento sked at:
https://www.cbsnews.com/sacramento/program-guide/
which shows on weekdays it`s four hours at 7-11 am PDT = 14-18 UT! I
let it run but pay no further attention, and Squelch avoids noise
during the breaks. Earlier I mis-read alignment on the program sked.
This show is not on 13.3, which carries Dabl, but on 31.1, i.e. CW31 =
KMAX, not KOVR at all. But the previous hours on 31.1 at 1130-14 UT do
carry CBS13 News // 13.1. So KMK282 could be in use intermittently
anytime during those long hours whether ionospherically propagating or
not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2152 monitoring: confirmed what is
now the first weekly airing on WRMI: Friday March 17 at 1430, ex-1530,
on 9955, but direct is S7/S9 vs noise level and undermodulated altho
no jamming audible. Later find it better into Maryland SDR, but not
making it to Bonaire or Brasília where it`s aimed. Stayed on at 1459
with a bit of `In the Bleak Midwinter` a few days before Spring, and
gospel huxter after 1500, but off by next check 1519.

Also confirmed Friday March 17 at 2157 the 2130 on IRRS SW via AM
Italia, 1323 kHz, VG S9+15/20 into nearby Noale SDR. 2159 usual IRRS
``s/off`` but stays on with news and then some music. Not sure when
really turned off but music at 2218 is only S9+5/10, probably Smooth
Radio, Brighton, England. Next:

** U S A. 5010, March 17 at 0630, S9+10/20 of dead air from WRMI
supposedly BSing all night. Something`s odd at Okeechobee. I always
wonder if anyhuman is overhearing it overnight (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Fri Mar 17 at 0346, quick 2-second check confirms
something on here and has to be KVOH. Program sked has been updated as
of Mar 12 for DST, also showing expansion to *4* nights per week,
instead of only 3, making up for lost time? i.e. UT Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon:
https://voiceofhope.com/schedule/kvoh_program_grid.pdf
So that gives them four chances to fail instead of three, maybe more
favorable odds? Still totally gospel-huxtering tho some shows are
disguised as secular music; except for two DX programs, AWR Wavescan
UT Monday 0000, and Frecuencia al Día, UT Sunday 0000. They had a
chance to carry WOR but blew it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 17 at 0638, VP with Doppler flutter, or are
there two signals? At 0658, S5/S8 should be strong enough to detect
modulation if any, but none, fluttery, and still on past 0701,
presumed R. Vanuatu.

Gary Pence, KM5X, TX, tells me at 0729: ``Hi Glenn, I checked 7260 khz
at 0655z and I'm guessing I am late to the party because only a
carrier present listening from KFS SW. And now at 0723z signal
S9+10/18db, the loudest I've ever heard them. Too bad there is no
programming to be had. They are not on anywhere else`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050, 4820, 4810, March 17 at 0632, JBA carriers, as
STANAG noise is unusually absent from 4810+. 4810 would be R. Logos,
Perú of course, but the others? Above WWV, nothing else except 5010
WRMI deadair and 5025 Rebelde. Nothing but Tibet/China listed on
4820/5050 but surely not from midday there. 4820 not a likely MW
harmonic; 5050 possibly WRMI exciter? Certainly not defunct WWRB as
still listed in Aoki! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6000 USB, March 17 at 0631, JBA 2-way in unknown
language; in the absence of RHC, of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
