Glenn Hauser logs May 17-18, 2019

** BRAZIL. 9630.453, May 18 at 0535, S5-S7 carrier, maybe unmodulated, obviously R. Aparecida, which had been missing for some time at nightmiddle chex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non?]. 11860v, May 18 at 0245, S9 total of open carrier with slight het and pulse jamming. At first I wondered if Radio Martí carrier were still on from Greenville long after sign-off. But one of the 11860 sigs is the JBM +10 kHz RHC spur out of 11850, which is S9+30; the matcher on the low side, 11840 in the clear, is S9. There is also a slight het on the low side of 11860, which could be Saudi`s Yemen service, as Gianni Serra, Roma, had measured it April 28 on 11859.96 — I haven`t heard it well in ages. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, May 18 at 0254, RHC Spanish frequency is OFF. May 18 at 0526, 6060 still off and 6100 too, both now supposed too be English, leaving only 6165 undermodulated, and 6000 S9+20 with somewhat more modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9790, May 18 at 0537, huge open carrier at S9+40. Still at 0546 but gone at 0600 recheck. Obviously the 250 kW Habana relay of CRI not turned off at 0500; RFI 500 kW in French is scheduled here at 0500-0700, but not a trace of it. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.239, May 18 at 1329, RHC again self-knocked off from 13740.000, S6-S8; while // 13700 is S9+10. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, May 18 at 1334, RHC is S9 vs storm noise; almost seems like a fundamental, but unscheduled, really 2 x 6000 also still audible at S9, then a dead air pause on both. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.1, May 17 at 2231, TOMBS via WBCQ old transmitter, and on old 7490.1, but NOT // — forced myself to listen to each for a minute and no match even out of synch. At 2342, BS still on 9330.15, S8/S9+10 replaying the bit about EMP threat, while 7490.17 now has gospel huxter at S9/S9+10. As we are approaching AAAWWW time, no sigs detectable on 5130 or 3265, high storm noise level. More at USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1982 monitoring: confirmed Friday May 17 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair but fading; it was better before 2200 with VORW. By 2227, S5-S7 vs unnecessary Cuban pulse jamming; usual overlap with next item as I conclude with “— next week“. Fortunately those words are disposable, non-essential. Andy Sennitt ID is also cut off before he can finish uttering the WRMI address, as automation continues to be misaligned, 2230 into gospel huxter in Spanish.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 18 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, fair in storm noise.

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. Continued from SOUTH CAROLINA [non}: 9330.15v & 7490.17v, May 17 at 2357, WBCQs monitored on two receivers, smoothly merge into same fill music following separate programming, and at 0000:00 sharp May 18, “William Tell Overture“ theme starts, plays complete with no interjexions! 0003 dead air for a minute; 0004 oncomes Allan Weiner saying it`s been a rough day, with crazy issues, but undetailed. Once again he`s very depressed this week and says he almost didn`t want to do the show. It`s not clear whether this is all about the project, or the political situation, or both. Says trimulcasting on 3265, 9330, 7490. I listen to the first half on 9, then 7 is better.

I gather that the supertransmitter has not been on since last week, as the antenna is still not ready; delays due to heavy rain for two weeks. Funding problems, issues over money; local contractors gouging. Invites phone calls right away but no one seems to inquire exactly what the problems are. I keep listening hoping for some useful info. At 0038 says they are buying an old ladder firetruck for $5K to reach the antenna heights, instead of renting a ladder truck which has been costing $22K per month. New transmitter is so complicated, watch out! When working, it`s great. Now hopes to get into full-fledged operation sometime in June. 0045 reads a few pirate items from Free Radio Weekly just published, including, unattributed, my log of Captain Morgan SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, May 18 at 1330, WWCR with a sporadic-E boost to S9+10/20. Still at 1512, S9/S9+20. 6m Es map not checked until 1700 when there is not much, nor on 10m, but latter does show some golden TE – Trans-Equatorial contacts between SE USA and deep South America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.918, May 18 at 1512, WTWW-3 rarely on with classic rock, distorted overmodulation, and as always offset way below 15810.000. S9+10 via my inside longwire due to storming. Still at 1551.

[non] While in the neighborhood, look for World Music Radio, Denmark, 200 watts on 15805, which SHN says is on the air this Sat & Sun at 0700-2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, May 18 at 1511, again this Saturday no signal from KVOH when `Wavescan` is scheduled; off or not propagating? OSOB is JBA carrier from 17815 WHRI. KVOH had come back earlier this week after last week`s outage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 18 at 0533, finally no signal from the mystery open carrier which has been on here several nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1734 UT May 18
