Glenn Hauser logs November 12-13, 2019

** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, Nov 13 at 0229, WRMI S9+10/20 with Tecsun Australia SW receiver ad (are they really trying to do business in America?), but cut off at 0230 sharp for World Music fill instead of Radio Tirana, which has still not been restored. Music could be Slavic or Greek, or maybe even Albanian? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 6060, Nov 13 at 0100, dead air for a bit after SMTV, then RAE opening relay in Spanish via WRMI, undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 10000-CUSB, Nov 12 at 0653, PPE pips every dekasecond mixing with WWV pips ever unisecond. Good nightmiddle trans-equatorial propagation from Brazil also on 9665- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Nov 12 at 1826, CHR Trenton Military still 61 minutes slow announcing “time: 1725 zulu“, after no-reports-received from MB and AB airports, but then received from those in BC timestamped 1400. CHR should listen to CHU! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 9790, Nov 12 at 1537, Chinese vs Chinese making a fast SAH, adding up to S9/+10. Scheduled here this hour only is RFA Chinese via SAIPAN, consequently with CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9330, Nov 13 at 0727, S9+10 of dead air — not to be confused with World`s Last Chance Radio via WBCQ as allegedly scheduled 24 hours on 9330, but a long-standing hour for the Cuban spy numbers station HM01, presumably talking and beeping during parts of this hour alternate nights. If WLC ever get going, quite a collision will result (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13560, Nov 13 at 1510, RHC FM spurblob at S9, only F# tone audible, no program modulation like 13700-AM transmitter source of this. Welcome back! Had not heard any of this for some weeks. That means at approx. 70 kHz intervals from fundamental, so another one soon located around 13630, with a trace of music. But much weaker on the plus side, 13770; by 1513 all have weakened, being tweaked, or just random? At 1531 I hear a trace of F# circa 13490 vs CODAR. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9640, Nov 12 at 1546, RHC music with a SAH from something else — South Korea scheduled in Aoki; HFCC adds Sa`udi Arabia, perhaps wooden; note that per the delayed B-19 schedule from Arnie via wb, this Antillas frequency is to be replaced with 7340 by November 18, temprano at 12-16 UT, while 9640 will remain a tarde frequency at 22-05 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 12 at 1824, RHC is off, but 11760 remains on in Spanish. Per B-19 sked both are supposed to run in Spanish until 1900. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13820, Nov 12 at 1532, Radio Martí VG as usual but some pulse jamming at last audible under; and also still pulse jamming against nothing on ex-13605, just in case RM go back there, which it never does until A-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 17800, Nov 12 at 1512, YL with weather info, lots of numbers, in French, VP signal; at 1527 recheck now in English but with very heavy French accent, S9-S7. // 17825 but on the latter the audio is somewhat degraded, like “chuffing“. This is for the special Mini-Transat La Boulangère yacht race second leg from Gran Canaria to Martinique. Boulangère means baker, but has nothing to do with baking and should not be so translated. Why thus named?

17800, Nov 13 at 1506, better now, S9-S6 with French numerical info; but this time no AM signal on 17825, rather traces of DRM noise.

Until now 17825 had always been heard in AM altho registered as DRM; and always noticeably weaker than 17800; despite otherwise identical parameters, 250 kW, 250 degrees, no slews, antenna type 217, and CIRAF targets 11SE,36S,46NW,81S which convert to: 11SE = eastern Caribbean; 36S = north Atlantic Canary Islands westward; 46NW = north Atlantic adjacent south of there; and 81S = central north Atlantic devoid of land, otherwise a never-cited target area for anything.

When really in DRM, the power is presumably cut significantly. Now how many contestants are listening in DRM rather than AM, or even have portable DRM receivers aboard??? It`s unclear how much longer this will continue, but available until November 30, presumably somewhat beyond arrival of the winner, safely to serve the stragglers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 6255, Nov 12 at 0708, JBA talk, presumed Echo of Hope on its current frequency per Aoki/NDXC, already propagating after 4 pm local somewhat before sunset. Also North Korean noise jamming can be heard on 6350 and 6600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Nov 12 at 1929 UT, “La Diferente 97.9 FM y 1120 AM“. 2000 UT ToH legal ID pronounces KETU in English, additional slogan,“La estación latina de Tulsa, Oclajoma“. Their top-billed FM is of course a mere 250-watt translator, K250BN with a tiny fraxion of the 10 kW AM daytime coverage, but where it counts, I suppose, as 1120 CoL is really Catoosa. FCC map pins K250BN near US 169/64 and East 54th St., i.e. on the SE side of Tulsa, yet direxional favoring the SE, not NW, quite a null at 290 degrees. “La Diferente“ is a rather weak slogan claim, if you ask me (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: since I was out at a Veterans` Day event, could not check UT Tue Nov 12 at 0100 on WRMI 7780; did anyone hear it? Next:
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

(Glenn Hauser, USAF ret., OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, Nov 12 at 1822, SMTV via WRMI finally without extra audio, during Vietnamese? music; had been double-audio whenever checked on Nov 10 and 11. 6060, Nov 13 at 0043 still only one and undermodulated at S9+10.

5800, Nov 13 at 0047, JBA carrier again, implying that despite implementation of new 6060 ex-5800 temporarily, there is now another weak WRMI transmitter holding the fort on 5800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, UT Wed Nov 13, WBCQ William Tell Overture so `Allan and Angela Weiner WorldWide` playback is starting: an oldie opening with additional guests present, Larry & Jane Will, Tom, et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, Tue Nov 12 at 1814 and 2258 chex, WTWW-1 is on with SFAW, S9+20 but undermodulated. So much for the Sunday-only 15-18 sked when website last checked, and heard by Dave Kenny. But 9475 remains off most of the time, such as at 1636 check Nov 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 7630, Nov 12 at 1539, JBA carrier with flutter, presumed clandestine to North Korea Voice of Martyrs, as scheduled 1530-1600 via Tashkent, per Aoki but absent from HFCC. This site is a favorite for several other such services, bouncing across China (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Nov 13 at 0101 after absurdly off-topic “Onward Christian Soldiers“, WHRI opening relay of Voice of Vietnam, in Vietnamese. As Peter W Hansen reported already Nov 8 to the WOR iog:

“It appears that Vietnam on 7315 WHRI has a new schedule:
0000-0027 English 25 degrees;
0030-0057 Spanish 173 degrees;
0100-0157 Vietnamese 260 degrees
(no break at 0130 went straight through)“
So no longer a chance to hear English again at 0100 on a better beam
