Glenn Hauser logs December 10-11, 2019

** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, Dec 11 at 0110, RAE via WRMI Spanish about Argentina with porteño accent; there was big news there today but seemingly not about that right now. Fair signal here but never very good aimed south, but more than the JBA carrier. See also USA [and non] WRMI (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13632 & 13768, Dec 10 at 1509, spurblobs from RHC 13700 which is S9+10 with music; 68 kHz above and below, and much weaker second-order+plus circa 13836, S4, better detectable in FM than AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Dec 10 at 1514, CRI Plus relay is S9+20 of dead air; something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 10 at 2353, RHC Spanish on earlier than before; it was not on at previous check 2328. Anyhow, WRMI is already on 5800 contrary to own skedgrid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Dec 11 at 0314, RHC is S9+20 of dead air in English; while // 6000 is same at S9+30. These are supposedly two different sites so problem must be upstream like in the STLs, studio output. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Last time I computed the possible leapfrog mixing products of the Bauta RHC frequencies on 49m. This time, where could land the Quivicanes/Titanes, i.e. 6000 RHC with CRI relay first on 6180 at
0100-0300, then 5910 at 0300-0500:
6000 & 6180: 6360 and 5820
6000 & 5910: 6090 and 5820
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Dec 10 at 2020, VOG music and talk are S9+10 but unusually overmodulated, distorted. Don`t station operators monitor how their own signal sounds off the air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.923V, Dec 11 at 0248, music weak off-frequency after WRMI 5010 0200*, no doubt RNM signature. Is also slightly unstable, wavering. Now if we could pinpoint the LAH to WRMI after 2300 when RNM is not expected to be on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 15125, Dec 10 at 1731, S7 to S9+10 echoey Swahili, the SSOB except for 15140 Cuba; I bet it`s CRI via Bamako: Yes, as scheduled this hour, 100 kW eastward. Figured there would be a // on 13 MHz, but none found; later found listed at 13645 per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 10 at 2303 and 2328, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski under wall-of-noise Cuban jamming against nothing else; and retune at 2354 to catch the timer cutoff at 2354:59*, which is 8 seconds earlier than last check 4 nights ago December 6 until 2355:07* = averaging 2.0 seconds slippage earlier per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 6020-6025-6030, Dec 10 at 0752, DRM noise, whence? HFCC shows Voice of Russia at 0600-1000, 100 kW, 34 degrees from K/A = Komsomol`sk/Amure in DVR, at that azimuth onward to N America. First time I have noticed any of these new DRM tests(?) from Russia, supposedly domestic programming not revived external VOR. Tho I have not sought them out deliberately. Aoki/NDXC instead designates this as GRFC with music, not only at 06-10 but also at 20-22 & 01-06 daily. Komsomol`sk sunset was 0648, so only now is it getting into nighttime there. The earlier broadcasts would be in local daytime intended for domestic coverage. (Romania also emits DRM around 6025 at 1700-1757) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 13590, Dec 10 at 2000, tune-in to open carrier and soon off* – AGM is scheduled 1900-2000 in English, a.k.a. VOA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.043, Dec 10 at 2025, Qur`an JBA from SBC, signature off-frequency. First time audible at all in a week or more; was off or just not propagating? Still not enough for lullaby listening; and our alternative Greece is distorted, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Dec 10 at 2006, REE is S7-S9 of dead air; stronger than 11940 also DA; and at 2009, S7-S9 of DA on 9690. Recheck 2301, all three are *still* in dead air, and 11685 also detectable JBA carrier. Something`s very wrong at REE. Could the powers that be not know the Noblejas transmitters are running for hours with no modulation?

Mike Bott also reported to the WOR iog yesterday Dec 9 at 2216 UT: “REE 9690 — Sounds like some technical issue occurring at REE this evening. Nothing but static being transmitted peaking at S9+10 here in central Ohio. Seems to be the same issue heard 2 days ago. Verified on multiple Kiwis and Utwente. — Mike“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Dec 10 at 0753, S9+10/20 of dead air from this WRMI-5, again, during SMTV block. RAE in Japanese is supposed to start at 0800 weekdays; unknown whether it came to life by then. But at best 5950 is undermodulated, and 285 degree beam is far off targeting Japan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5800, Dec 10 at 2303, WRMI is S9 but undermodulated in Spanish, 2328 music, presumably SMTV and not on 6060 per misleading skedgrid. Could be on 6060 as RHC is not up yet, rather a JBA carrier from Zahedan or Chengdu. RHC expected before 0000, and in fact already going at next check 2353. See also ARGENTINA [non]. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Strange things are happening around here on 87.7-88.0 MHz; extremely intermittent big carrier, some with tones, enough to QRM reception of 88.1 KWOU on home radios, like around 1445 UT Dec 10. These I suspect are from malfunxioning K202BY Family Radio Enid satellator, which has not been on 88.3 even with a dead carrier for months now.

87.7 or 87.9, on caradio along west Garriott in Enid around midday Dec 10, such as 1827 UT, gospel/country music for a few minutes. Maybe winter sporadic E from a Franken FM circa channel 6 analog audio frequency? Maybe a local Xmas display, but stayed too long likely to come from another car`s RF feeder. Earlier had a split-second like a meteor burst, a Geminid? That shower peaks Dec 13-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
