Glenn Hauser logs September 25-26, 2019

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 26 at 0633, RHC bigsig of S9+30 with deadair in English; straining, a trace of JJBB modulation. 6165 is only S9/+10 but more modulation to the JB level, hardly sufficient. 6000 is already off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Sept 26 at 0640 is S9+20 but once again wrong language, Spanish instead of English, and barely modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13634 approx., Sept 26 at 1404, RHC-FM back to “normal“, spurblobs out of 13700-AM transmitter instead of 13740 as happened yesterday. Matched by +66 kHz about 13766; with F# tones and second orders much weaker about 13568, 13833; but no third-orders audible about 13500 & 13900; the outer ones are really unnecessary, anyway. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Sept 26 at 1415, CRI Plus English relay is S9+10 but modulation somewhat suppressed + distorted = suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9610-9670 approx., Sept 26 at 1420, buzz field out of 9640 RHC now detectable over +/- 30 kHz range, worst peaks around 9630 & 9650. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 5000, Sept 26 at 0649, WWVH again announcing a listener survey at a website, could not catch details, but no doubt repeating every hour during this minute, and elsewhen on WWV, which now is JBA following WWVH TC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Sept 25 at 1820, after two days of dead air, REE has awakened to modulate the ME beam with silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 9390, Sept 26 at 1418, R. Thailand, VP talk in presumed English as scheduled 1400-1430, also other languages since 1200. In the MARE Tipsheet, Ken Zichi and Gary Vance report an unmod carrier on 9389, out of 9395 WRMI? Or an artifact. Never noticed here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 12005, Sept 25 at 1819, French at S9-S7, discussion between studio and phoner. HFCC shows BBC Woofferton, 1800-1830, 250 kW, 170 degrees. At 13-18 it`s also Woofferton due east with IBB in Farsi = Radio Farda. And would you believe that HFCC still has registered in A-19 on 12005 at 1700-2110, 500 kW from Sfax, Tunisia in Arabic, long-gone and imaginary? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2000 monitoring: confirmed Wed Sept 25 at
2100 on WBCQ, 7490+, S9-S7. Rereconfirmed no longer simulcast on 9955
WRMI, q.v.

BTW, after many, many months, WRMI skedgrid continues to show three
imaginary airings of WOR in the 2100-2200 span (along with many other
programs) when System D has *no* frequencies: Tue 2130, Wed & Thu
2100. Also never deleted from that sked, System F, Wed 1030 on 5950.

WOR 2000 also confirmed UT Thursday Sept 26 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, poor off the side, and not upcut as I repeat my opening words. Next WOR 2001 should be ready early UT Friday Sept 27 for first SW airing at 2200 on WRMI 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Wed Sept 25 at 2058, WRMI with IS & ID loop, 2100 opening RFPI in French; since I am not familiar with exactly how they begin, can`t be sure whether it`s upcut like ex-WORLD OF RADIO always was for weeks at this time; for the third week RFPI, and finally that shows on the skedgrid. BTW, I see that WRMI now shows both XMTR 4 and 10 on 9955 at 160 degrees, but no transmissions at all from #4, so a backup? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. [re my previous report:] “9955, Sunday September 22 at 1253, `I Love Italy` acknowledging reception reports. In Italian, quite different accent than we hear from Roberto Scaglione in Sicilia; I wonder if this guy be an expatriate. Nothing about the show on the WRMI Programming page; scheduled Sundays 1245-1300“

On the WOR iog, Roberto Scaglione replies: “He is not an expatriate, but Andrea Mangiarotti is from far north and I am from far south, completely different….“

And Tibor Gaal, Budapest, Hungary adds: “North and south Italian people speak different dialects of Italian. Italy’s geographical feature made it possible to form different dialects in the south than in the north of the country. On the map Italy is a long country if you see in north-south direction meanwhile it is not very-very wide (east-west direction).“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, Sept 25 at 1814 check, WBCQ-6 not on today nor later into UT Sept 26 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Sept 26 at 0628, S5-S9 of dead air as WWCR is on again with kilowastage; same signal level as 5935 modulating DGS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050-USB, Sept 26 at 0645 weak talk in USB only, seems Spanish, continuous like a broadcast, but eventually some pauses like 2-way. Severely obscured by big AM carrier on 5051.0 where normally there is none. 5050 talk is not // either Cuban on 5040, 5025 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1634 UT September 26
