Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat May 8 at 1411 tune-in via Brasil
SDR, LRA36 is already on, poor S7 with song, 1416 ID with usual fare
of lots of music, IDs; still 1521 music, 1554 IDs, 1600+ music, 1639
still; unknown when cut off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, May 8 at 0350, RHC English back here ex-6145 for one
night last night. At 0610: 6165 & 6100 OK; 6060 with hard buzz; 6000
off; 5040 in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 6165 again at
0405 check May 9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545v, Sat May 8 at 1530 not even a JBA carrier at
UTwente, which we were still detecting May 5 at the formerly scheduled
time for Bayto Yaikl. So ISS France may have finally turned it off or
propagation is not coöperative.

11760, Sat May 8 at 1640, Bayto Yaikl via ISS good S9/S8 into UTwente
the 1630-1659 in Tigrinya; mentioned Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman, who
is U.S. Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa; DOS bio as of April 21:
https://www.state.gov/biographies/jeffrey-feltman/

At 1700. VOA Kurdish via Biblis inherits 11760; there has been no sign
of CubaRM over there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.0-USB, May 9 at 0045, pirate music and DJ
comments, via KB0FX SDR with storm crashes. Was hard to pin down
frequency at first with unfamiliar music and no carrier. 0104 canned
ID? by YL voice I cannot understand despite repeated multiple times.
But then, ``This is Zekey here; that was KIND, classic? recording``.
It was obviously this filed as ``Goat Herder Radio``, Zekey;
apparently no one else heard him mention KIND:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81376.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 8 at 2158, VOT is on today, IS OK avoiding RTTY
on LSB like I am sure every potential listener can and shall employ
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. May 8 is Armed Forces Day, during which crossband contacts
between military stations and hams are encouraged, with lots of
stations, times and frequencies here, thanks to Chuck Gessner:
http://www.dodmars.org/home/armed-forces-day-2021

During the afternoon I cycle thru all the listed frequencies above 13
MHz several times; disappointing results, nothing heard on 24, 20, 18,
15 MHz bands. Of course I may have missed some contacts while the
other side was transmitting duplex.

14487-USB had something JBA, but 14606-USB is very active by ``MARS
Radio`` --- no other ID, call, base, or location beyond Florida
mentioned a few times! He has an accent of some sort. 1843 contacting
KD9EDR; 1948 now he`s stronger S9 with AE0G and NZ7S. 1958 makes
general calls, listening on 14.258, which I never check. Still going
at 2156 when the official AF Day message is about to be transmitted.

7540-USB said something about that just before 2200, but nothing
further heard there nor on three other frequencies on the sked for
which mode is not specified but apparently nothing in plain phone,
rather digital modes but no beepery heard.

Two years ago I heard the NWVC ship and NSS, as in DXLD 19-20:
https://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1920.txt
Three years ago I had NIIW ship and AAZ too:
https://www/w4uvh.net/dxld1820.txt

Chuck Gessner reviews AFD for the WOR iog at 0249 May 9:
``Well, was I wrong? Armed Forces Day Communications Test was a 48
hour event, not 24 hours as I had posted. To me, there was very little
activity on Friday, May 7th. But Saturday, May 8th had many military
stations in operation from all over the U.S, from Florida, Rhode
Island, Maryland, California, Illinois..Those were the stations that I
could hear. I heard several of the military operators briefly
commenting that the propagation was weird. The military stations on
the 5 MHz band were, to me very strong-most of the time. Oh well. From
what I could tell most operations stopped at 0200 UT, or thereabouts.
I never did hear or copy the Armed Forces Day message from the
Secretary of Defense. Not sure why. Oh well, it was fun`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2085 monitoring: confirmed NEW time
of UT Saturday May 8 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20, cutting
immediately from wrapup of Argentina in English scheduled for
0200-0230 UT Tue-Sat.

Also confirmed Sat May 8 at 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA; and unlike last
week, stayed on.

Also confirmed Sat May 8 after 1600 on WRN webcast to N America.

Also confirmed Sat May 8 at 1956 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM MO via KB0FX
remote about 14 minutes into so started circa 1943.

NOT confirmed Sat May 8 at 2030 on IRRS, 918-AM, Italy as I had been
told would substitute for pre-empted 1801 on that and 7290: instead
music past 2040, and there was dead air at 2028-2030, steady S9+18
into Noale SDR.

Confirmed UT Sun May 9 starting at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, despite
proximity of KB0FX SDR, with heavy storm noise which I see on
Blitzortung is currently centered around the quadri-state area
NEMOKSIA. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2200vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW
2300 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE

Hauser
** 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,
OK, WOR)

** 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!
http://programasdx.com/frecuencialdia_horarios.htm

Current home page shows pennant of LV Cañas, and audio link to May 7
show. At start, includes three separate clips of yours truly:
http://programasdx.com/frecuenciaaldia.htm
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,
OK, WOR)

** 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:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81306.0.html
(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:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,81307.0.html
(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)

WOR 2085 confirmed first SW airings, UT Fri May 7 at 0130 on WRMIs:
5850 VG direct; 7780 S9+15/25 into VA SDR.

Also confirmed Fri May 7 after 2030 on IRRS via Italia-AM, 918 kHz,
usual steady S9+18 into local range IW3HBX SDR. Stayed on after 2100
with news and music until autocutoff at 2111:26* including any
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)

GLENN HAUSER`S WEEKLY LOG ROUNDUPS

Published by early UT Thursday each week, the original complete logs
in one merged alfabetical file:
http://worldofradio.com/Hauserlogs.html
The April 30-May 5 edition:
https://www.w4uvh.net/ghlogs_2021_0429_0505.txt

** 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

http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2021/05/dimtse-bayto-yiakl-usa-at-new-time-and.html
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,
OK, WOR)

** 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,
OK, WOR)

** 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.

https://www.npr.org/2021/04/30/991424624/fifty-and-forward-an-anniversary-celebration-of-npr
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,
WOR)

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)

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed May 5 at 1513, LRA36 is only S2-S3
into Brasília #2 KiwiSDR, signature ``Antártida`` song at tune-in,
LRA36 ID, then mostly music past 1527; still on at 1555 but off before
1700 when I check again after Eritrea [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BOTSWANA. 17530, May 5 at 1533, pop song in English, S9+10/20 into
UTwente. It`s VOA relay this hour only; 1535 DJ urges COVID measures
such as masking, back to more song, Bieber, on `Border Crossings`,
which hardly presents anything exotic as the name might imply. Aoki
shows this transmission is *jammed lest any oppressed ESL Chinese pick
it up, but no jamming audible now. So strong I think I was hearing
trace of its music bleeding/crossmodding onto 17545, see ERITREA
[non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 15700, May 5 at 1502 & 1543 chex, CRI Plus English
relay via CUBA is AWOL for at least second day: canceled, or another
outage? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, May 5 at 0629, RHC English has the humbuzz on here
again ex-6100, which is off along with 6000; while 6165 remains on in
the clear. You never know what combo of 5 possible channels will be
running after 0600. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17544.90910v, another Wednesday, May 5 at 1527 so
I`m listening for Bayto Yaikl, the Wed & Sat only clandestine brokered
by RMI via Issoudun, FRANCE. Once again there is a JBA signal via
UTwente, S6 = noise level on adjacent channel, but enough for its
Synch to look onto it precisely as above. No audio from it, but traces
of music from somewhere which at 1533 I decide is bleed/crossmod from
the VOA bigsig on 17530, with Border Crossings via BOTSWANA, q.v.

17545v itself is far too weak to identify directly, but was the always
off-frequency B.Y. in the B-season. WRMI skedgrid at the very bottom
still shows 17545, not updated for A-season. I`m alert for when it go
off, which happens at 1558:49* including any internet delay; can ISS
still be running that transmission with nothing in it??

Latest HFCC of May 4 still shows:
17545 1530 1600 48 ISS 250 120 0 227 1234567 280321 301021 D 17400 Mul
F RMI TDF 13156 BYUSA

But also:
11760 1630 1700 48 ISS 250 125 0 216 36 280321 301021 D 8500 Mul F RMI
TDF 14044 NEW

Ivo Ivanov has been reporting that 11760 an hour later on Wed & Sat is
replacement for 17545, even tho 11760 entry does not include ``BYUSA``
and the 17545 was never 7 days a week.

11760.000 or 11759.999, says UTwente Synch: Rather than LRA36, after
1630 May 5 I keep listening to 11760, S5-S7 into UTwente, which
certainly seems like Bayto Yaikl, but I *never* can hear those words
mentioned. Opening has horrible self-imposed echo but only briefly.
Presumably in Tigrinya, but occasional English terms I can copy: kHz,
Amerika, World Press Freedom Day, Amnesty International, PBS
Frontline, investigative reporting. Continues all-talk with Frontline
etc. mentioned again at 1646. 1647 finally a bit of Horn-of-Africa
music; 1655 mentions Hitler, Hirohito; 1656 HOA music; 1656.5 closing
announcement in *Arabic* including meter-band, kHz, and off at 1659*
At PBS website I cannot find a Frontline episode about Eritrea (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, May 5 at 0622, VON with big OC, then JBM chant
and drumusic. Tuned by at 0619, it was NOT on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 35, May 5 at 1514 UT, a little tropo enhancement
produces one BAD signal normally invisible, on this channel only;
could be full power in Wichita KS, low power in Woodward or Concho OK.
Hepburn tropo map points toward the latter, the native station near
OKC I`ve seen before, K35MV-D, 15 kW. I continue to wonder about its
penetration into the OKC market; must it be carried on any cable
channel? Soon fades out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7730, May 5 at 0618, another TOMBS
transmission via WRMI bites the dust. Had been the last of three 7 MHz
frequencies to retain the dead gasbag overnight; but still shows on
the WRMI skedgrid as Overcomer 01-08, so absence could be temporary.
Still rampant on 5850 & 5950 --- and 5890 WWCR --- with JBA signals on
9395 & 9455, the lower still sked with him too. WRMI skeds are never
uptodate, still dated April 2, and still showing 7570 & 7780 overnight
TOMBS which were really dropped weeks ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring; can anyone confirm the Wed
May 5 at 1030 on WRMI 5850? Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. NPR Turns 50 --- 8 minutes from CBS Sunday Morning May 2

Rest of 63+ minute commercial-free program also highly recommended:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 11835, Wed May 5 at 0629, R. Vanuatu in music
with a low-audible-heterodyne, LAH, i.e. the A-21 season CCI expected
from CNR2, Xianyang 59 site, China, so one or both of them must be
slightly off-frequency. I have not yet tried to measure RV`s 3rd
harmonic when it`s solo. On contrary, Aoki/NDXC shows CNR2 is in a
siesta break after 0600 on Day 4 only = Wednesday = today; shouldn`t
that be Day 3 = Tuesday? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13530, May 5 at 1457 open carrier over CODAR, S9 with
some fades to S6, off by 1501 recheck. Strong and steady enough to be
intracontinental, but way outside a broadcast band, maybe ute? Or
extracontinental CNR1 *jammer since 13530 is a Sound of Hope frequency
until 1550 per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** CHINA. 15775, May 5 at 0138, not much happening on 19m now but a
JBA carrier here. Aoki shows nothing but Sound of Hope at 2130-1600,
so it`s likely CNR1 *jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST
TURKISTAN

** CUBA. 15700, May 4 at 1504, CRI English relay is absent, nor on
ex-11880 either; propagation OK with RHC on 15140. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, May 4 at 19-20, missed checking whether RHC English
were back here from 15370 yesterday, and whether still only one hour
in the afternoon; did anybody notice? I did check May 4 at 2315 and
until 2357.8* with that English hour on 11880, while after 2200 was
still in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA? 5085, May 5 at 0018, Cuban-style weak pulse jamming centred
here before WTWW is on, now via Bonaire SDR, as heard before here when
WTWW was on. Possibly some kind of ute instead (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 4747 & 4783 approx., May 5 at 0035, scratchy spurblobs
obviously out of R. Progreso which has just come on 4765, into Bonaire
SDR just like I hear them direct, plus/minus 17-18 kHz. I can`t think
of anyone else who has ever reported these. No one else cares about
documenting all the crap Cuba defecates onto our SW bands? Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, May 5 at 0135, RHC is S9+10/20 but suptorted, flanked
by the JBA carrier spurs on 11840 & 11860. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST TURKISTAN [and non]

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9710, RHCuba has stuck to this new
frequency, which when it first appeared April 27, I pointed out
immediately would conflict with CRI to Latin America at 00-03 UT.

Now at 0034 May 5, into Bonaire SDR, continuous Chinese music is atop
RHC in Spanish, during their Portuguese hour which for years now has
been filled with music only on all its transmissions including 00-01.
Meanwhile RHC`s exes, 9650 and 9640 are both empty! Way to go,
frequency manager Arnie!

At 0054 CRI does announce the Portuguese schedule in Brazuguese
accent, including this hour, also on 6100. For 2300 I didn`t hear him
mention 13650 which is the Cuban relay. After that, dead air or off
until 0100 CRI IS, theme, Chinese and Spanish IDs.

From the land of ChiCom imperialist genocide against Uyghurs and other
Moslems, Kashgar site is 500 kW at 269 degrees for Portuguese,
shifting to 294 for Spanish, i.e. centrally aimed first at Rio de
Janeiro, then from Belém across mid-Brasil where the first SS country
hit directly is Bolivia, but should be good for neighbors Perú,
Paraguay, northern Argentina as well; CubaRM permitting, Commies vs
Commies!

BTW, I would seldom quote National Review, but David Cole sends this
disturbing report from the May 17 [sic] issue which I have retitled:
Uyghur families pay a ChiCom imperialist price for RFA journalism

https://www.nationalreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/xml_20210517_Nordlinger.html

WRTH 2021 page 504 shows RFA has only two Uyghur hours per day, 01-02
& 16-17 UT, mostly via Kuwait on a different frequency each day of
week, also some via Saipan, Tinian, Dushanbe.

But for A-21 Bulgarian DX Blog shows:
0100-0200 on 9780 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 9800 BIB 100 kW / 063 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 11640 KWT 250 kW / 054 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 11790 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur

1600-1700 on 9355 DB 200 kW / 060 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 9480 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 11675 TIN 250 kW / 305 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 15700 BIB 100 kW / 075 deg to CeAs Uyghur
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [and non]. I did manage to hear all the UBMP episode of
throat-singing, tnx to the unpublicized semi-repeat Mon May 3 at
2300-2330 on WBCQ 7490v webcast; and Tuesday May 4 at 2000-2100 on
Channel 292, 6070 with a VG signal into UTwente; which followed his
other show, FTIOM until 2000 and off the air at 2100*. BTW, UB says
next week`s FTIOM will be all-music, no interviews; on WBCQ UT Tue May
11 at 0000-0100 on WBCQ 7490v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7162-LSB, May 4 at 0605, new frequency for ZL4RMF,
ex-7168 last night, Dunedin, in contact with OA4DPQ, unheard here
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4775.037, May 5 at 0030, music from R. Tarma is S6-S7 into
Bonaire SDR, on signature offset frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.477v, May 5 at 0033, music, talk from R. Huanta 2000,
also S6-S7 into Bonaire SDR but sounds weaker than Tarma. Both OAs
luck out escaping the Progreso, CUBA, q.v. spurs out of 4765 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 4996-CW, May 4 at 0022, binary pulses at S4-S5, via Bonaire
SDR. Got to be the 10 kW timesignal station in Taldom near Moskva,
despite the distance, doing as well as WWV into Bonaire SDR. Yes,
there are pips on the minute at 0023, 0024, 0025, 0026. Also checked
9996, no signal there. WRTH does not show any `program sked`; it would
be very helpful to know at least when they ID. IIRC it`s at :39 and
:09. Recheck at 0107 in constant tone/dash, 0108 dead air, and yes,
0109 RWM ID over and over in CW. 0217 rerecheck, second pips
occasionally doubled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, May 4 at 1506, TOMBS is on WRMI again
today // stronger 9395 and weaker 9455. Skedgrids now claim it`s daily
at 1430-1600; M-F from 1400; among many other deadly hours (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring; Next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** VENEZUELA. 6205.028, May 5 at 0015, ROCV with tropical music, S5-S7
into Bonaire KiwiSDR. For one day last week it shifted to 6216,
reported by Manuel Mendez (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, May 5 at 0215: 855
is the only detected stepping thru every 9-kHz, vs considerable local
and storm noise levels. Likely Spain RNE1 with 10 synchros totaling
445 kW, headed by one 300; altho Romania has a single 400 too (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5040.8, May 5 at 0020, RHC has a het on the plus side as
heard by Bonaire SDR; no known such broadcasters. India should be
about to open but not so off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
