Glenn Hauser logs June 2-3, 2020

** GREECE. 9420, June 3 at 0034, I find Voice of Greece S9+10 in English, interviewing someone in Zimbabwe, with consecutive translation and discussion of what he has said; about challenges in agriculture, climate change, water shortage, paying off debt run up by previous government; hopes to make a turnaround like Greece. Compares the two countries geographically. There are some connexions, like Greek churches and schools in Harare, and plans for the first Greek university in Africa. The subject is of Greek heritage, his father still speaking Greek; hopes to visit Greece often with his family when that becomes possible. End of interview by 0051. One of those surprise benefits of SW bandscanning, as I never expected to be learning about Zimbabwe in this way (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 17550, June 2 at 2002, no signal at all from R. Kuwait, Arabic to C&W North America at 2000-2400, as scheduled for A-20 as well as B-seasons, 250 kW at 350 degrees. If it ever make it, this is the time, June-July with maximum Arctic transpolar insolation, while it`s completely foolish to try it in the winters, starting out near midnight local time! I am about to conclude it continue to be a phantom service, not even really trying. With a few more sunspots, it`s possible and have logged it only during previous summers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185, June 3 at 0029, S9+10 open carrier/dead air from XEPPM: I struggle to detect any JBM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11730, June 2 at 2313, something new here, very poor sounds Spanish; could it be RRI? ex-11800 usurped by Cuba? No CCI there any more as I reported immediately RHC moved from 11850 a few weeks ago. This would be // 11990 RRI, but that signal is JBA, too weak to match on a second receiver. By 2325 I check them on UTwente SDR, and yes, both are VG with RRI in stilted Spanish about their anti-Communist revolution. Must be very recent switch as latest HFCC dated 29 May still shows RRI on 11800, not 11730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, June 2 at 2000, KVOH is on today but JBA with English and Spanish IDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, UT Wed June 3 at 0122, this WBCQ is on but JBA, presumably with W5KUB`s `Amateur Radio Roundtable` of Tuesday evenings. Simultaneously, 5085 WTWW-2 is loud but no QSO ham show, rather Ted hyping “Global Hot 100“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. By June 3, WWCR has belatedly put up new schedules; transmitters dated June 1-August 31, and programming as of June 1: http://www.wwcr.com/program-guides/WWCR_Program_Guide.pdf

9980-7520-5890, as expected from monitoring, WWCR-4 has now been *sold out* to Brother Scare, 24/7 except for 3 hours weekdays it was already committed to other gospel huxters. BS had previously occupied lots of fallow hours on the other transmitters, and those continue on 3215, 4840, 9350, 12160, 13845, 15825 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1270, June 2 at 2014 UT, in full daytime conditions, KRXO Claremore (Tulsa) OK silly sports talk at 5 kW with heavy SAH of exactly 1 Hz from another groundwaver: got to be either 50 kW KFLC from Benbrook (Metroplex) TX with Spanish sports talk; or 5 kW KSCB Liberal KS talk/sport. All of them direxional to complicate. Need to DF and/or pull a language (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. June 2 at 2010, the 9-11 MHz area is free of local noise blobs, but I fear it`s some device intermittently turned on if not random electrical shorts (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0342 UT June 3
