Hauser
** CHINA. 21490, July 21 at 0114, JBA Chinese, presumed CNR1 jammer vs
Sound of Hope. Also carriers but no mod presumably likewise, on 18985,
18970, 18965 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, July 21 at 0131, music at S9+10, no doubt Channel
292. Hard to believe this be only 2 kW as licensed, even considering
antenna gain. Publicized as 10 kW; has been known to get time on
Moosbrunn, AUSTRIA, 100 kW, but presumably only for sold programming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. 18138 USB, July 21 at 0119, IK2FST calls KA4WHT,
after Paul, S9+20 in Pembroke Pines FL calls CQ 17, but instead he
answers some other Eurostation, Germany? Not heard here; anyhow,
QRZ.com: ``IK2FST Italy flag Italy, cecilio SCARPANTI, Lodi, LO 26900,
Italy``. At 0121 on 18155 USB, had a DL8++ in the Black Forest, with a
WB9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 770, July 21 at 0700, nothing but Spanish, not a bit of
WABC or KKOBs, promo `La Radio de la República` show at some afternoon
time, ``en Grupo Fórmula, 970 AM``. Likely XEACH Monterrey NL: yes,
that chex on website:
https://www.radioformula.com.mx/nacional/2023/7/17/cambios-de-horario-en-radio-formula-se-mueven-chumel-joaquin-ruiz-healy-desde-el-lunes-24-771840.html
but note that was a *year ago*. Lots of stuff on website, but can`t
find a plain old program schedule or network affiliate list (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 28228 CW, July 21 at 0105, JBA OBOB almost copied
after multiple passes with fading, EEEEEEE DE ZL3TEN and more
including ANT; was not sure of last letter, seemed like F rather than
EN, but got to be this per WGB list:
``28228 ZL3TEN - Rolleston, Christchurch NZL RE66ej - #0 (09 Jan 2024)
Note: ID + grid + eee`` -- QRZ.com: ``ZL3TEN New Zealand flag New
Zealand, The Christchurch VHF DX Group, C/o 18 Westbelt, Rangiora
7400, New Zealand`` - I`ve heard it before (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880 USB, July 21 at 0100, OPOB at S9+10 equal to
HSNL, jazz/blues, 0102 non-ID announcement, song. These say it was
Texas Radio Shortwave via Mix Radio International, both before and
after 0100:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,131712.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.82 approx., July 21 at 0112, strong and steady
local CB pirate carrier but no modulation now and no other channels.

27184.79 approx., July 21 at 1448, S9 open carrier, with intermittent
rude vocal QRM slightly higher, ~27184.94. No skip in now (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. `TIME FOR A RECKONING`: KANSAS FARMERS BRACE
FOR CUTS TO SAVE OGALLALA AQUIFER
By Kevin Hardy, Allison Kite, Stateline.org and The Kansas Reflector
(TNS)

https://www.pressreader.com/usa/las-vegas-review-journal/20240627/282406994540459

What has this to do with radio? Surely there be a correlation between
the Ogallala Aquifer and the central US region with greatest ground
conductivity. That means enhanced coverage of MW and LW signals by
groundwave, as we are so fortunate to live in that area. Look for the
30s, which are found nowhere else in the USA - except along the Texas
Gulf coast:

(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK)

** TURKEY. Continued from last report: 11785.009, VOT English via
UTwente: 2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, music. 2253 s/off by OM
not ignoring SW but as always for the wrong transmission, 1230 on
17620, then satellite and internet. 2254 IS, 2256 restart IS with
German IDs until 2258.2* chopoff. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K Q O G B A N I. BBC Proms 2024 season underway --- ``Hey Glenn,
I hope all is well. I haven't heard you mention anything about the BBC
Proms this year. I found this link to the Proms page and it started
yesterday. I hope you enjoy the selections this year.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/5pydkxT0wJb5FB5Z3WwvTVs/proms-2024-your-guide-through-the-season
Chris Campbell, Ohio``

Tnx, Chris; I had sought info on BBC websites but kept getting only
2023 stuff.
For Radio 3 linx to listen on demand, 3 so far. Usually these expire a
month after, or a month after the Last Night:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2252 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 20 at 2300 on WTWW 9474.980, S9+5/20 into Maryland SDR; first I
tried UTwente which I already had running for Turkey, registered S7/S9
but JBA to the ear. Not a lobe toward Europe? Who knows. HFCC once
showed due south, 180 degrees, but it certainly does well due west.
Strangely, latest HFCC has no TWW entries on 5085 or 9475, rather
three frequencies not yet? in use, 5830, 9930, 12105; with 9930 only
at 180.

NOT confirmed UT Sunday July 21 at 0000 on WRMI 9955 into Maryland
SDR, music instead, some of it gospel, tho WOR still on WRMI websked.
Canceled without notice? What next?

Confirmed UT Sunday July 21 at 0331 about 6 minutes into so started
circa 0325 the 0315v on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+10/15 into nearby SDR,
with HSNL.

Also confirmed Sunday July 21 at 1048 the 1030 on WRMI 9955; had not
checked in longtime but fortunately happened to awaken. Was supposedly
on internet only at this hour per skedgrid; but now the ``except on
weekends`` applies.

Also confirmed Sunday July 21 at 1900 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.995,
S8.5 noisy into UTwente across Europe, but better than Trieste SDR
gets it. Next:

2130 UT Sunday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160;
2330 UT Sunday WRMI 7570 to NW;
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW;

** U S A. ** U S A. WTWW: George McClintock forwards a series of
messages with photos sent to Al Rillera, apparently a visiting
engineer, as captioned:

``The Harris SW100 AC breaker went bad and would not turn on. It was
replaced with a new one. A lot went bad while you were gone. More bad
news to follow tomorrow. We look forward to your return to Nashville.

The #1 transmitter high voltage ON, went bad and the transmitter would
not turn off. REPLACED.

Inductors cleaned. Dirty inductor in the SW100 Harris. Cleaned and
lubricated.

I have just removed the 4 loading inductors (coils) from the Harris
SW100 number 3 transmitter and placed them in cleaning vinegar. After
washing, they are ready to be put back into place. These coils were so
dirty that the motors were having a difficult time moving them. I had
to put a voltage regular in that had been removed and the wires tied 
together by the previous engineer. The high voltage power supply is 
working well. George McClintock  7-17-2024

Some of these resistors on the power module have changed value and had
to be replaced.

This is the phase detector that was bad, causing the transmitter to
turn off after a very few minutes or seconds.

Unless I am mistaken, this is the relay to keep the SW100 blowers
running after shutdown. It does not work. No adjustment seems to make
it work. I am in the process of getting another relay from the
transmitter in storage in the middle building. George McClintock
7-19-2024`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 21 at 0134 tune-in, JBA carrier, then big open
carrier on and off; by 0136 rock at S9+30/40: guess that would have to
be gospel rock, on WRNO. IIRC in seasons past there has been something
Eastern Hemispherian sharing 7505, but nothing else listed now. Maybe
the JBA carrier was WRNO exciter only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, July 21 at 0703 UT, no music, nothing but stupid
sportstalk from tigric KWKH LA: KLEY Wellington (Wichita) KS must be
off instead of usual 250 W day power cheatery at night; or legal one
watt? Hardly, at 1617 UT recheck, no daytime groundwave signal either
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15140-15165 approx., July 21 at 0124, OTH radar
clickery; seems more of that lately inside broadcast bands, but
nothing to QRM here.

7480-7495 approx., July 21 at 0135, OTH radar QRMing `SW Saturday
Night` on WBCQ 7490-; not 25 kHz wide and not so strong but still
audible under J.P.

7405-7422 approx., July 21 at 0137, OTH radar, same sound as above
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1956 UT July 21

** OKLAHOMA. 27185.085 approx. AM, July 20 at 1438, Enid CB pirate
S9+30 with loop? of hard rock music and mention of Walgreen`s - I
quickly scan local FM band for a match, not 105.5 or anything else.
Digging deeper at 1442, but it`s off. Was not on a second or third //,
and maybe different than the one I had been hearing which was always
on the minus side of 27185 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785.009, Sat July 20 at 2200, VOT English not
off the air, S9+45 into UTwente, but QRM from OTH radar for the first
time heard here, range approx. 11783-11808, in the clear on 11790 &
11795, but not such a problem to ROMANIA 11800 which is even stronger
S9+50. That stops maybe 10 minutes later. 2215 sounder and ``the news
continues``. 2218 `The Energy Agenda` repeat about impact of
Russia/Ukraine war. 2224 music. 2228 multi-lingual ID filler reel.
2230 music. 2239 `Turkey`s Geomarked Products`` repeat about Van
breakfasts. 2242 music. 2245 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, 2245
music, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2252 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT
Saturday July 20 at 0400 on WTWW 5085: had been usual VG signal
direct, but at exact moment WOR should start, cut off the air! George
McClintock explains: ``power failure``. Did not resume before 0430.

6160.000, S7/S8 into UTwente.

** U S A. 9265, Sat July 20 at 0639, surprised to hear Spanish gospel
huxter on WINB, S9+10/25. Does their program sked show it? Of course,
not! Supposedly TOMBS. Elsewhen there is one with a Spanish name and
two in English labeled (Spanish) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN [and non]. 15595, Sat July 20 at 0635, RCC `news`
concerning Africa; surprised to hear English here. Per EiBi at
0630-0645 Saturdays only to ME. Convoluted multi-ling sked shows other
English: Friday 1130-1200; daily 1615-1630. As usual one of the SSOB
at S5/S7 direct, exceeded only by 15770 Slovakia Spanish via WRMI,
S7/S8; and equivalent to 15505, Ndarason via Woofferton (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 14670 RCUSB, July 19 at 1639, no signal from CHU at local
range into Ottawa KiwiSDR, while 3330 & 7850 are locally strong. Some
time July 18 tuning across direct, I had noticed it missing. As Karl
Zuk points out, their ``system status``
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
concedes ``14.670 MHz: offline since [2024-07-16 at 21:00 UTC]``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, July 19 at 0658, S9+40 of dead air from R. Rebelde:
something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA. 28160 CW, July 18 at 2204, VVV DE HP1RIS/B plus a lot more
letters uncopied, JBA fading out and could not copy for sure every
letter in call, but most of them matching this WGB entry:
``28159.5 HP1RIS/B - Panama City PNR FJ09ga - #0 (21 Jan 2023) Note:

Hardly anything else on band except an unID beacon on 28282 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR) Make all those: Panamá

** SPAIN. 17855, July 19 at 2200, token English from REE, S9+20/30
direct and also audible on the other three. One preview topic to be
about ME athletes in the Olympix. Lead news item, global Microsoft
outage; *rump speech. At 2224 listening S7/S9 via Bonaire SDR, sports
interview by Lebanon correspondent, 2228 bit of music fill resulting
from a `Bogotá` festival yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.020-, Fri July 19 at 2158, VOT not off the air, IS
and English IDs, S9+10/20 direct but not enough to overcome line noise
level. 2223 into Bonaire SDR, song at S9/+10 but considerable 11780
ACI; S9+40/45 into UTwente. At 2229 when measured, `Weekly Analysis`
about Ukraine war, nuke threat, NATO etc. 2235 `with-you-every-hour`
promo, song. 2240 `Turkish Folk Tales` about a bottomless peat, and a
sultan. 2248 TRTVOTWorld.com promo, music. 2254 s/off ignoring SW, few
sex of IS before 2255* chop, no finesse. Something`s always erroneous
at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7633.5 USB, July 19 at 0702, ``MARS Radio``, with tones,
brief contacts, ``BFJQ`` fonetikaly. AF MARS logged previously long
ago here, in 2008y, 2014y. Strange they would be active in the
nightmiddle (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 9955, July 19 at 0652, WRMI again on late, not
with RFI Spanish but MEish chanting, almost Qur`anish; this has
happened before as if deliberately scheduled as such contrary to
websked. Still overshadows VANUATU on 9960 until 0659 (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 7490 -69 Hz = 7489.931, July 20 at 0000, WBCQ, S9/+10 into
NH SDR with `AAAWWW`, not disclaimed as a replay, but obviously is
last week`s when he started talking about toilets: never mind. Then,
he was ``trimulcasting`` and said so, and I bet that`s still on this
playback despite 3265+ and 5130- being off the air now; while as usual
6160 had TOMBS before 2400 and still some gospelhuxter into the new
day; so, monalcasting? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, July 19 at 0650, no sign of WMLK, while 19m is not
totally dead of all signals. There they go again; we`ll never know
what DEJOM would have said, but I am sure it were stale (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1120, July 19 at 0713-0716+ UT, S9+35 of dead air, obviously
KMOX St Louis - even such a major outlet can fail like this; if not
some required testage (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 18 at 1915 and still 1943 chex, RHC English

``Cuba, Three Years After the 11-J Demonstrations --- Three years
after the public protests of July 11, 2021, it is important to
understand the significance of that day, and where we are now.
Juan Antonio Blanco, Miami 15 Jul 2024 - 19:35 CEST [caption:]
A corner in El Vedado, and a problematic date for the Cuban
authorities.

Three years after the events of July 11, 2021 (11-J), it is important
to realize what the significance of that day was, and where we are
now. The import of the national uprising in 2021 is that it revealed
that most of the population rejected a failed and repressive regime,
and that the idea that the Cuban people were living happily was a
fallacy manufactured and exported to the world.

And the great lesson reiterated on that July 11 is that nothing can be
secured from a dictatorship without standing up to it. . .``

** U S A. 4750, July 18 at 0643, starting my 60m bandscan here, just
as CODAR pauses for Morse Code ID, twice, too fast for me to copy, but
has been IDed and fully discussed before. So this merely reconfirms
that IDs fire at :03, :23 and :43 past the hours. Like CODAR
swirshing, the code is not confined to any exact frequency (Glenn

Thursday July 18 at 0147 the 0130 on WRMI 5010, JBA direct; S7/S9 with
HSNL into Maryland SDR; S9+5/12 into Bonaire SDR, and BTW much
stronger than WRMI 9955 also aimed thataway.

Also confirmed Thursday July 18 at 1630 on SW Gold Radio, Germany,
6160.001-, S7/S9 into UTwente.

``Hi Glenn, Been meaning to send a donation for weeks now. Finally
getting around to it. Thanks for including tidbits from me in the
show. Actually, you and I go back a way. I first discovered you back
in the 1970s and contributed to a print journal you published. Then in
the mid 70s I moved from Pennsylvania and my DXing came to a halt. In
the 90s I picked it up again, and actually had a Philips DC-777 SW
receiver in my car. It was a joy to listen to the BBC, R Moscow, R
Luxembourg, etc. as I drove around Pennsylvania. But as we all know,
things began to fade away to what they are today. Nonetheless, I am
happy to be back at it, tracking down what there is as well as
presenting Pop Shop Radio. Never dreamed as a kid that I'd someday be
on shortwave``

2024, Glenn Hauser wrote: ```Is Allan Weiner, a ``man of science``,
secretly snickering at his benefactors stemming from an Egyptian
cosmetics tycoon? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)```

Bill Tilford, IN, replies: ``Or is said Egyptian tycoon secretly
snickering at the inhabitants of the US for failing to put anything
saner on the air with the same signal strength? Yeah, the joke's on
someone, but on whom, by whom?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, July 18 at 0645, WMLK gone again, not even a JBA
carrier, while there are various weak signals on 19m and WRMI remains
S9+ in Spanish on 15770. At 1738 July 18, 9275 is also gone again,
zero sig into Maine SDR. Very unreliable; you never know whether will
be on air or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2252)

** U S A. Following up on the 1650 kHz UNIDENTIFIED tone overnight:
I`ve been listening on remotes from 0345 past 0500 UT July 18: only
one Kiwi near LA, not in LA itself, useless. One San Diego NG, another
good and also the Pahrump, NV one - both getting mixture of Korean
from KFOX, and Spanish sports, i.e. El Paso, KSVE with TUDN network.
At 0459, KFOX ID in English, ``AM 1650, southern California`s #1
Korean language radio station``, a few words of Korean, and 0500 the
tone hits --- but the Spanish is gone and by 0505 am still hearing
Korean. Then check the nearest remote to El Paso, T or C NM, and it`s
getting ONLY the tone. That concludes it`s KSVE! There is also a SAH
of about 2 Hz on the tone. BTW both licensed underpowered at night:
KSVE 850 watts, KFOX 490 watts. At 0638 UT July 18 I DF it easily on
the DX-398 as WSW/ENE. That fits for El Paso. Should have done that in
the first place. Also note Vance says it`s a local signal for him, so
sticking with KSVE. El Paso is also closer to Walt`s 130-degree
bearing from BC, than KFOX or anything else (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2252)

{other recent posts on IRCA:}

``Glenn, Further to the posts re this originally on MWOffsets, the
conclusion back in May was that KFOX was the source. I still hear the
heterodyne beat occasionally when scanning across the X-Band down here
in the South Pacific. Best 73, Bryan`` Clark, New Zealand

``Bryan, OK, that seems likely, but from mwoffsets it is not very
clear how you and Tony finally confirmed that. Seems all
circumstantial. Niven doesn`t get it from the south in TX; calculated
2 Hz low at center? but mwoffsets as of Jan had KFOX only 0.1 Hz low.
Was there ever any kind of ID or local clue? Local quality signal in
Los Angeles area? Triangulation? KFOX admits it when contacted? TDOA?
Strange that everyone refers to them as spurs or het rather than a
tone - at a certain pitch. BTW if it were modulating speech it would
be in Korean. One might hear the transition at 05 or 12 UT. Glenn``

{The mwoffsets iog thread searching on KFOX:}

``1650 AM transmitter spurs
KFOX confirmed as the culprit for these side carriers.

1650 AM transmitter spurs
KFOX confirmed as the culprit for these side carriers.

1650 AM transmitter spurs
Probably KFOX has side carriers about there: Walter Salmaniw via

1650 AM transmitter spurs
Centre point for these is 1649.998, so perhaps KFOX or CINA have a
transmitter of transmission issue?
By Bryan Clark · #950 · May 21``

``Searching on 1650 I also found: Someone near CINA ruled that out by
offset. Another item from Niven, he was getting it aiming west. Walt`s
130 bearing is rough, not DFing by nulling 90 degrees off, and 130
hits the AZ/NM/CO/UT Four Corners - not too far from Denverish. 73,
Glenn``

Re Tone on 1650 overnight, John Johnson, Jul 17 #41947: ``I’ve been
trying to figure out the 1650 tone for many months now. It’s a daily
thing. Pretty strong tone here. This morning 05:00 UTC the tone came
on like you mentioned. At that time, I was also hearing KBJD and KSVE
both with clear IDs. Then at 12:00 UTC similar, but this time KFOX was
strong over the tone. KBJD, KSVE, and KFOX are all regulars into
Phoenix, Arizona. Hopefully, someone can determine the station sending
the tone. 73, John C. Johnson, Mesa, AZ 85212-2923,

Wellbrook ALA 1530LNP``

John Johnson, 3:29pm #41962: ``Glenn, I heard KSVE with programming
and ID and the tone comes up with them still there. I've heard KFOX,
KSVE, and KBJD all while tone starts. Not any of those 3. 73, John``

Robert Vance, 10:55am #41958: ``Good Morning; This is what I'm getting
now. I also tuned it with an SDRDuo in diversity mode and nothing else
was heard on 1650 once I nulled it. I had presumed this to be local
KSVE, without giving it a second thought. I hope this helps. 73's
Robert Vance - El Paso, TX``

Robert Vance, 12:03pm #41959: ``As an update to what I posted earlier,
at 1200Z, the tones were replaced by TuDN Radio programming. 73's
Robert Vance, El Paso, TX``

Joseph Miller, 8:01am #41957: ``Thank you Glenn and John, From my
location between LA and Palm Springs, I heard the tone at 7:10 utc
sometimes over sometimes under KFOX in LA. I haven’t looked up the
KSVE’s nighttime pattern but I suspect it may have a lobe to the west.
(I can not get the patterns anymore from the FCC website :( ) Thanks
again! 73 Joe Miller, Hemet CA``

It`s licensed as U1 = non-direxional day and night, like all US and
Canadians on 1650. A few X-banders on the coasts get to be direxional
- and Enid`s 1640 to SSE in order to blast into OKC, which makes it
rarely heard in Europe or S Pacific, but should be enhanced into Latin
America (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
