Logs
** 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

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

Logs
** 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)

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

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)
