** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, LRA36 eQSL direct received July 29. Filled in only date, country and name Guillermo Glenn Hauser but lots of other station info on card including two seals and what looks like a commemorative postal cancellation, or maybe a rubber stamp, via http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html where it`s #97: http://www.w4uvh.net/GUILLERMO.jpg. Frequency is first shown as “15.476 khz AM – OC“ but below: “Emisiones de Prueba !USB¡“, while AFAIK it has always been USB with reduced AM carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 30 at 1348: 14850 JBA; 13835 S4-S8; 13130 S7-S9 // 13835; 13020 S5; 12880 S5; 12820 S4; 12795 JBA; 12550 S7; 11170; 11150; 11100 just in time before 1400*. 10920 open carrier still a bit past 1400 before off too.
11170 & 11120, July 30 at 1421, these CNR1 jammers are still on JBA.
11785, July 30 at 1418, open carrier — either CNR1 jammer against VOA Chinese via Philippines not turned off at 1400; or CRI Chinese via Kashgar, East Turkistan scheduled this hour but failing to modulate.
Also at 1350, steady carrier on 14745.2 as heard before but think it`s unrelated unID (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 11627 & 11713, July 30 at 0034, major spurblobs at S9 out of RHC 11670, plus & minus about 43 kHz; better readable in AM than FM mode; also another +43 around 11756, and JBA minus 43 around 11584 JBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15230, July 30 at 0040, RHC still on here at S9 but Just Barely Modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 11742-11777, July 30 at 1420, splatter range out of RHC 11760. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, July 30 at 0559, NDB PN in Ponca City is back on the air (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. RF20, July 30 at 1533 UT, regional tropo enhancement showed a Bad signal only on this open channel earlier, so I stayed on it and by now has visiblized with stable Dr Oz show on KQCW-HD Tulsa market; no subchannels. This is the one most likely to decode with any enhancement. OKC RF 27 KFOR is blocked by DX as is RF 17 3ABN translator in Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. (7275), July 30 at 0315 despite my alarm, miss checking VOT Letterbox on final UT Thu repeat, but via WOR Hitlist I find the podcast at http://www.radio360.eu/podcasts/en/tr/vot/20200729_1430.mp3 Ibrahim does the sign-on, claiming it`s the 1330-1430 broadcast on 15450 while it`s really an hour earlier all summer. More features follow until `Letterbox` starts at :19 into.
Follows up to last week about his friend in Malaysia with cancer: he died on July 23. Letters from: Otto Schwartz, Calabash?? NC USA whose handwriting is as bad as a doctor`s but is a very handsome guy with very big hands, and whose picture will be put on the wall forever; next from Michael Goeren?, Upland? California USA who had QRM from hams on 40m band; Brian D Webb, Upper Hutt, NZ; Japan who is getting fat for lack of exercise; and about protecting borders against PKK terrorist group which is where I came in on the 2200 broadcast: “Turkish nation never killed any innocent people“. Says next `Letterbox` will be in *two* weeks time, ending at :33, into `Did You Know That` about healing mud baths, by YL announcer also with heavy accent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 18115-USB, July 30 at 1840, long ragchew about lawn care, etc., finally ID as W7ID. The only phone station on band besides his JBA contact, after also finding no propagation on 10, 11, 12 or 15 meters. DXMap does not show any Es MUF blob between us. QRZ.com: “W7ID USA flag, JEFFREY P BISHOP, CALDWELL, ID 83607-8233 USA“ with his ham-bio, photos of self, magazine covers, antennas, etc.: http://www.qrz.com/lookup/w7id (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2044 monitoring: confirmed UT Thu July 30 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA here but good at UTwente Holland SDR. New WOR 2045 should be ready early UT Friday July 31 for first WRMI airing at 2200 on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 9395, UT Thu July 30 at 0042, Jeff White with examples of cable TV audio when he was in a Phnom Penh hotel (why? when?) as `AWR Wavescan` feature. Thought it might be // 5010 but too buried in noise; should have checked 5950 which I later find scheduled // for System G during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
