Glenn Hauser logs May 30, 2020

** CHINA. 13550, May 30 at 1508, JBA carrier, probably a CNR1 jammer against Sound of Hope as in Aoki/NDXC; no full WOOB survey today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, May 30 at 0528, once again what is often the best modulated and signaled RHC English frequency after 0500 is absent; still on 6100 > 6145 > 6000 in decreasing order of audibility. And today 5040 is in correct language, English instead of Spanish, but always with that squeal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, May 30 at 0535, JBA algo presumed RHC English 2 x 6100 harmonic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 7390, May 30 at 0523, French with self-imposed beepery QRM — this hour is RFI itself via Issoudun; meanwhile both ALGERIA relay frequencies, 7295 and 6125 are without the beepery which usually is to be heard upon 7295; so they must have swapped the defective transmitter around (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 11730, May 30 at 0539, VP S1-S2 news in AmeriEnglish, VOA? 0540 switches to French mentioning “nouvelles catholiques“? So Vatican, maybe via Madagascar. NO, it`s the French half hour of NHK via Issoudun — of course, defaulting to English news at the outset (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13575.047, May 30 at 1427, S3-S5 Chinesish talk. It`s RFA in Cantonese this hour only via TINIAN, typically askew. Altho Aoki says it`s *jammed, no sign of that. The ChiCom are not so eager to bother to block broadcasts in insignificant minolity ranguages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: awake by 1155 UT Saturday May 30, I hasten to check 9955 whether WOR still be at 1130 on WRMI. NO, replaced by some gospel huxtress, outro as Jack Van Impe show with address in Troy, Michigan. WRMI skedgrid shows this is supposed to be on SUNDAYS at this hour, so mistake, or now both? BTW, I had not noticed that JVI died January 18 this year:

But like so many other gospel huxters is embarking on a post-mortem career, tho in the few minutes I only heard her, his widow Rexella (how`s that for a gender-busting monicker?)? WOR may have been gone previously from this slot as I have not checked it every week. Next:

** U S A. 17775-, Sat May 30 at 1507, still no signal from KVOH, so its only airing of `Wavescan` is missed again. I wonder what the problem be now, same as before disabling it for a biweek until a biday revival, or something new?

Or is there absolutely no propagation this early? Recheck at 1825, now it`s on at S9-S6 but undermodulated. There is lots of sporadic E across the eastern half of USA, very little across the western (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7665-7725, peaking 7700, 9830-9870 peaking 9850, May 30 at 1425, and also circa 9490 at 1435, local noise blobs have shifted slightly upward by 20-30 kHz (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15825 & 13845, May 30 at 1530 onwards, WWCRs are getting sporadic E boost well above normal JBA level. 6m Es DX MAP shows heavy openings across eastern USA, but only a few spots barely exceeding 88 MHz, i.e. into the FMBC band; normally I need more than that to make it worth checking here. Below that, however, lots of CB channels have pileups and hets from all those off-frequency AM units, checked at 1830 May 30: 27025, 27085, 27135, 27165 (“eastern Iowa; south shore of Lake Erie“); NOT 27185! Also 27205, 27215, 27285, 27295, 27345; and in LSB not USB: 27385, 27395, 27575. 11m CB can really be hopping, yet hardly any activity on 10 or 15m hambands.

At 1835-1847 I perform a full bandscan of 30-51 MHz, and hear not a single voice, just tones/birdies here and there probably out of local computers. This on the R75, but no VHF antenna, just the HF/MF/LF longwire, which nevertheless previously succeeded in grasping some 6m phone USB ham DX from Mexico. I suspect the 30-50 MHz band be very underutilized these days for local 2-way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
