Glenn Hauser logs November 16, 2019

** CANADA. 6030, Nov 16 at 1333, JBA carrier. Could it be CFVP Calgary? Best window to get its 100 watts after the Cuban radio war is finished for the night, yet near-sunrise propagation. In fact, have seen no reports of CFVP for many months and wonder if it has closed down? I don`t recall any explicit news of that, but the last log I can find of it was by nearby Harold Sellers last December 21! But I may have missed some; how about it, Harold? Those close enough like Vernon BC could hear it all day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850, Nov 16 at 1358, still NO signal from CHU, despite allegedly Online per https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/ — what do they know? I do hear some SSB scratching nearby (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 16 at 0540, RHC English is suptorted with audio breakup and some hum; 6100 similar but less breakup; 6165 undermodulated but not distorted; ending Caribbean show, better modulation on music than talk. 5040 is still in Spanish this hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13566, 13633, 13766, 13833 approx., Nov 16 at 1505, RHC-FM spurs with F# tone out of 13700-AM; spurs also readable in AM mode, while 13700 itself is readable only in AM mode. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Nov 16 by 1935, I finally find some music suitable for napping, from reliable VOG, but only fair and fadey signal; scanned the higher SW bands which were almost all vacant, talk or a with few non-soporific music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND [non]. 7290, Sat Nov 16 at 1855, via UTwente SDR, IRRS carrier via ROMANIA has just come on with good signal never audible in OK across dayside, restored after AWOL yesterday. Vs huge splash from CRI 7285. At about 1857, CRI switches to 7295 for just as bad splash from other side. Opposite SB tuning and/or narrow bandwidth help but do not eliminate the ACI. Dead air remains a bit past 1900 (or internet delay?), about 1900.5 FSN = Feature Story News JIP, without any IRRS Aida IS or sign-on. 1901.5, another FSN ID. 1903.5 change to “News in Brief from the United Nations“. Audio is breaking up but it`s a UTwente problem since same happens to CRI, even after refresh. Then it`s time for brunch and nap; no WOR fragment now as was reported a biweek ago. 1955 recheck, some talk show is cut at 1958.5 to IRRS ID and sign-off, QSL offer, different theme for closing, and off about 1900* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 6000, Nov 16 at 1335, RHC with noise jamming, serves them right; no signal on 5995 and JBA carrier on 5990 probably China, so presumed 6000 be today`s frequency for Echo of Hope + jamming as in the Nov 15 edition of Aoki/NDXC. Less QRM to RHC // 6100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6085, Nov 16 at 1331, alarm SFX and Shiokaze IDs, Korean, from JAPAN; S9 and no jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035, Sat Nov 16 at 1346, VOT during `Letterbox` show, reading long missive from Alan Holder, Isle of Wight, who is also a correspondent of ours. Personal info such as best wishes to presenter`s grandmother but she is still in intensive care; and seems the presenter himself is recovering from a bike accident. Perhaps Alan can clarify this, including presenter`s name. Or try to hear repeats of this first English broadcast of the day, such as 2315 on 5960 if they manage to get on air, or UT Sunday 0415 on 6125. Copy difficult now due to heavy pulse jamming(?) at the rate of 4X per second, centred about 12032.5, inevitable even by USB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 11925.114, Nov 16 at 1341, VP carrier vs huge OCB splash from 11930, i.e. NHK Indonesian relay, to be followed by way off-frequency English at 1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2008 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November 16 at 1321 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA S3-S5 but presumably better in Europe where it`s aimed. 1356 recheck hearing beepery, so SW Radiogram or something else? SWR is sked on 15770 Fridays at 1300, per WRMI and per Kim, but Sat & Sun 13-14 UT blox remain blank on WRMI skedgrid. Ivo Ivanov confirms it was SW Radiogram at 1330 Saturday.

** U S A. 5085 & spurs, Nov 16 at 1327, WTWW-2 on again in the morning, Ted plugging WTWW-1 9475 for Bible stuff from SFAW; canned ID “America`s music on WTWW, Lebanon, Tennessee, transmitter #2 at your service“, and rock (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
