Glenn Hauser logs May 21-22, 2019

** ASCENSION. 7415, May 22 at 0614, JBA talk; HFCC shows it`s ENC in Kau this hour only, but what is it, really? Aoki/NDXC shows R. Ndarason International in Kan. WRTH 2019 page 511 shows Kanuri and also Kanembu language as the only target broadcast for CHAD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 15140, May 21 at 1432, RHC missing again today while still on 15230 but VP. And no OMAN either. Need to check before 1400* to try to confirm whether it`s 2 x 7570 SMTV on WRMI. Which I do, May 22 at 1355, but RHC is back on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, May 21 at 1437, CRI Plus English relay is distorted and overmodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060 & 6000 & 5040, May 22 at 0610, all these RHC English frequencies are off, while only 5040 is supposed to be; leaving only 6165, S9/+10 undermodulated; and 6100 S9+20/30 overmodulated/distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 5980, May 22 at 0158, TV Martí sound vs jamming, and ROMANIA [q.v.] has just closed; not // 6030 Radio Martí, and nothing on 6010, contrary to a report 23.5 hours earlier to the WOR iog:

“Noted here in NB this evening (21 May UT) at 0230 UT:
5980 kHz – TV Martí audio
6010 kHz – TV Martí audio
7335 kHz – Radio Martí
7365 kHz – Radio Martí
(nothing on 6030 kHz) — Richard Langley“

He agrees back to normal tonight; but a sign of things to come? TVM and jamming on 6010 will wipe out any chance for Brasil, or inactive Colombia, Mexico, let alone the Cuban leapfrog before 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15410, May 22 at 1430, S9-S5 in Chinese and a bit of English. Aoki/NDXC shows it`s CRI Chinese this hour only from Kashi-Saiba site, a.k.a. Kashgar (near the Uighur concentration camps. Such does not disqualify from participating in HFCC!) Specifically 500 kW at 300 degrees toward Europe, one of countless transmissions thus, and often carrying on to central N America when little else does; likewise routine CRI English on 15590 via Urumqi (NOT “Urumqui“) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17549.98, May 21 at 2119, JBA talk, the OSOB after KVOH closed VG 17775 circa 2100. Got to be R. Kuwait`s very optimistic central/western-USA target service in Arabic, scheduled all year at 2000-2400, 250 kW at 350 degrees, but just starting to propagate now a month from Solstice with maximum, but only partial insolation on the near-polar path. Note local time at takeoff ranges from 23 to 03; who else would ever consider broadcasting on 16m at such hours, let alone to the other worldside? I had just checked WWV at 2118 to hear the K index as zero, which helped (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, May 22 at 0612, no signal from VON; believe it has also been absent a few nights now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185.217-AM, May 21 at 2317, country ballads, lo-fi, speaker-to-mike? Steady S9+10 and the OSOB with no skip, local Enid CBer, would-be broadcaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7420, May 22 at 0156*, RRI cutoff shortly after tunein a bit early during music, as I am checking // to 5980 with JBA music mixed with Cuban jamming and TV Martí sound; but it had been producing a medium SAH which is gone as soon as I get back to 5980 whence RRI has also vanished (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Tue May 21 at 2055, WRMI is on with IS & ID loop, but 2116 recheck is OFF. #10 transmitter continues suffering from irregularity. Let`s hope it`s on and stays on for WORLD OF RADIO 24 hours later on Wednesday. If not, check whether WBCQ 7490+ again run WOR at 2130 instead of 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Wed May 22 at 0604, WWCR continues to run this transmitter with nothing on it, OC/DA at S9+20; while 5935 DGS is fadier, S9+10/20. Both 4840 & 3215 are now BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 21 at 0608, mystery open carrier still, S1-S3. No one else reports it, and might suspect local to here but it does exhibit propagational fading and lots of variation in strength from one log to the next. Who cares? The thing is, it might develop into something significant or interesting if we keep after it.

9200, May 21 at 1438, JBA carrier at S6-S3 also audible this time. Now could be CNR1 jammer/Sound of Hope, which Aoki spans 2151-1530, but propagationally surely not what I am getting in the nightmiddle (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 1727 UT May 22
