Glenn Hauser logs February 13-14, 2020

** CANADA. Bedtime beacon bandscan concentrating on less- or never-heard ones, Feb 13 at 0711-0719 UT finds these from four provinces:

392-MCW kHz, dash and ML, 500 watts from La Malbaie – Charlevoix QC

385-MCW kHz, dash and QV, 100 watts from Yorkton, Saskatchewan

355-MCW kHz, dash and YWP, 200 watts from Webequie, Ontario. Where`s that, and how is it pronounced?

“Webequie is a growing Ojibway community located on the northern peninsula of Eastwood Island on Winisk Lake, 540 km north of the city of Thunder Bay. The 850+ community members originate from all over Northwestern Ontario, and enjoy a life that embraces traditional cultural practices. Surrounded by Winisk River Provincial Park, Webequie provides tourists a pristine natural landscape with some of the best fishing and hunting in Northern Ontario“

353-MCW kHz, dash and PG, 25 watts from Portage-la-Prairie, Manitoba; mixing with IN and LI, the confusing MN/AR overlapping pair

340-MCW kHz, dash and YY, 500 watts from Mont-Joli, Quebec (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 13 at 0646, RHC still in Spanish instead of English, and suptorted altho S9+30; also with a big hum. Wiggle that patchcord. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7405, Feb 13 at 0641, Cuban wall-of-noise and pulse jamming altho not very strong, IIRC a frequency abandoned years ago by OCB. Also jamming against nothing on 7335, where RM is never currently scheduled; and Radio Martí over jamming on 7435 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Feb 13 at 1538, NO spurs today — how is it that other days they are all over the band from same frequency? But 13740 is still on with dead air, so something`s still wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.23, Feb 13 at 2150, for third day, this RHC way off-frequency at the same offset, S9+10/20 but suptorted in Brazuguese. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Feb 14 at 0114, RHC is S5-S7 and JBM, also with a JBA spur carrier on 11840; but carrier on 11860 bears non-// music, see UNIDENTIFIED. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185.716v, Feb 14 at 0105, XEPPM is still way off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Feb 13 at 2329, Cuban noise jamming is running, altho could not detect it for a day or two; JB allowing the Radio Chaski carrier to be heard, until autocutoff at 2352:50.5*. Last check was Feb 8 until 2352:59.5*, 9 seconds later, 5 days ago, averaging 1.8 earlier each night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 13 at 2353, VOT English is not only on today, but still on running much later into the hour than usual, with headlines, only at 2354 sign-off claiming this has been the 1330-1430 broadcast on 12035! Well, maybe it was as recorded without bothering to update any `news` as supposedly done thru the 2130 show. 2354.6 starts playing IS but I don`t stay with to tell if German succeed. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler and/or Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 2097.3-CW, Feb 13 at 0651 UT, single-letter beacon A is absent again. Last few nights had tuned across and heard it when I paused for at least 10 seconds, without bothering to relog (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Feb 13 at 2329, this WRMI is finally back on with usual weakish signal, TOMBS // much stronger 7570 & 7730. It had been off due to damage since Feb 8 and still off early UT Feb 13, which is what I based my WOR 2021 comment upon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11860, Feb 14 at 0113, music JBM at S5-S7, and not // RHC 11850 which puts out spurs on 11840 & 11860. Could it be Saudi`s Republic of Yemen Radio which I have not heard clearly in over a year? Thanks to the Cuban radio war in the daytime. Aoki says Yemenish does not start until *0200; EiBi *0300. Anything else? CRI Nepali service not until *0130. Or could it really start at 0115, due to Nepal`s wacko +5:45 timezone? BTW I can`t help but wonder if timezone confusion has led to any Everest fatalities among all the visiting foreigners (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 14 at 0212-0216: 531, 549, 558, 567, 576, 621, 711(2), 774(2), 837, 855, 891=strongest, 909, 936(2), 1053, 1089, 1215, 1305 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1477+ & 1503-, Feb 14 at 0118, no sign of the FMish spurblobs presumed to emanate from some defective 1490 kHz graveyarder. Meanwhile, a resounding lack of interest, no replies found to my previous reports of these posted ASAP to MW groups, requesting other DXers try to get a DF fix on them. Should they recur I shall certainly report them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0421 UT February 14
