** CHINA [and non]. CNR1 jammer survey, July 27 at 1352-1400: again none found in the WOOB areas of 13, 12, 11, 10 or even 9 MHz; but there is a poor inband signal on 9680 until 1400* timesignal and off. Is it propagation, or has there been a cutback? N Korea is still propagating poor-fairly on 11735, 11710, self-jamming on 9435, and S Korea on this week`s jumparound 9095.
11440, an hour later at 1454 at least is JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA [non]. 11880, July 27 at 1455, S9+30 of open carrier, so CRI Plus English relay via CUBA at 1500 seems promising tho did not get around to evaluating. There had been reports of this missing, not only from the canceled 14-15 hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 11634-11635, July 27 at 0133, extremely distorted spurblob at S5-S7 but loud, and tone also audible in FM mode; with similar sound on source 11670 RHC transmitter, and more at 35-36 kHz intervals: 11706, 11742, 11776 vs Brasil 11780.
It so happens that `En Contacto` starts at 0135 UT Monday, Arnie with variety of topix, including “QSL en el aire“ to someone in Arequipa, Perú for a report of — 11670! NOTHING said about the spurs it outputs! Arnie says this transmitter and antenna put out 4 megawatts of ERP. Then another report from Brasil of someone hearing English on 15140 at 1900 — and again no mention of the constantly defective modulation there! And if a QSL on the Air is provided, does that mean you don`t get a hard- or e-copy?? Axually listening on clear 11760; also on 11800 which is suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! Somethings` always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 5150-USB, July 27 at 0127, JBA music vs HSNL. Per https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69905.0.html it`s Radio 48. This area just above Area 51 has become active for pirates I need to check more often (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Despite heavy storms in western Kansas heading this way, some ND beacons are audible vs the noise:
388-MCW kHz, July 27 at 0533 UT, OB — pretty sure of this ID but no matches in either list nor on adjacent frequencies; closest would be OK, 388 in Okmulgee OK, 25 watts.
395-MCW kHz, July 27 at 0542 UT, ULS, 25 watts in Ulysses KS where the storms are.
417-MCW kHz, July 27 at 0543 UT, IY, 25 watts in Charles CItY, Iowa; I was tuned to 415-USB.
420-MCW kHz, July 27 at 0546 UT, PK, 25 watts at Olathe – Herbb KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2044 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday July 27 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG at Austin TX KiwiSDR, close to its aim, and at 0053 check also VG here, S9+20/30.
Also confirmed UT Mon July 27 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, VP S5-S7 here.
Also confirmed UT Mon July 27 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, VG at UTwente.
Also confirmed UT Mon July 27 from 0302 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5130, good at Rochester SDR; here, S9/+10 including high storm noise level from Kansas.
Also confirmed UT Mon July 27 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, JBA here; inaudible on TWR SDRs Bonaire, DR, Boa Vista, but fair at Brasília, good at Maine SDR! Next:
1800vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 9955, July 27 at 1402, WRMI is still on with anti-ChiCom comments from Freedom Synergy Radio, but gone at 1419 recheck. So it seems running past 1400 weekdays is irregular, unintentional (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5050, July 27 at 0128, S9+30/40 of dead air and then annoying fast busy signal for at least a minute before I get out of there. Someone`s program feed by phone has failed to WWRB; at least confirmed still on air UT Mondays and presumably also Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 1540-, July 27 at 0147 UT, big low het to 1540.0 stations, doubtless KGBC Galveston TX doing it again sporadically.
1560, July 27 at 0147 UT, Vietnamese in the mix but not dominant, doubtless KGOW Bellaire TX; both Houston market; vs a Fox Sports Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, July 27 at 0155: nothing lower but a JJBBA het from 891 upon WLS, doubtless the Algerian which makes it if any (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6970, July 27 at 0125, JBA AM carrier, maybe a pirate or mixing product. Nothing recent on HFUnderground. With bonker QRM from about 6973 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
