Glenn Hauser logs September 27-28, 2020

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 28 at 1350: NONE found WOOB in the 14s, 13s, 12s, 11s or 10s. Propagation is degraded. WWV reported:

“Geophysical Alert Message
Solar-terrestrial indices for 27 September follow.
Solar flux 74 and estimated planetary A-index 24.
The estimated planetary K-index at 1500 UTC on 28 September was 4.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level occurred.“
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. Colombia? 4940 is back on — The anonymous mystery missionary station is back on after missing since Sept 19 – 4940, synch carrier minus 5 or 6 Hz to Bonaire SDR, 0233 UT Sept 28, poor-fair S6-S7 with storm crashes. Typical programming of M&W chat, dramatization. About an hour earlier when I checked, it was not on but detected the -29 Hz carrier of R. San Antonio, Perú (Glenn Hauser, 0238 UT September 28, WOR iogroup) sparking others, below

Continued to be heard, but at 0329 dead air, still carrier at -3.5 Hz; 0336 suddenly resumes modulation, biblical dramatization, bit of music; but 0337 starts long-winded Spanish preacher, exactly the same recording I heard weeks ago UT Sept 9, soon after it first appeared: saying it`s 8th of April, he is restricted to house due to coronavirus, citing Isaiah chapters; still going past 0412, 0429.

Meanwhile I tried TDOA again, but could get only two SDRs to participate, Key West and Dominican Republic — they came up with somewhere in the Caribbean north of Venezuela. Wouldn`t it be something if this 4940 thing really were on a boat?

Other reports following via HCDX:

“Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain — COLOMBIA, 4940, new religious station, 0605-0645, 28-09, after days off, today on air again. First noticed by Glenn Hauser, heard here in Reinante, North West of Spain with Colombian songs and religious comments in Spanish. Very weak. 15321.“

“Manuel, thanks for your alert. Today the station was playing still at 1050. Time announcements remain strange. At 0756 they announced 4:04 local. At 0957 they played the national anthem of Colombia. After one week off air they perhaps changed their schedule. One thing which is still missing is an ID. Karel Honzik, Czechia“

“Good signal via TWR Bonaire SDR between 0430 and 1100 UT September 28 but from 1200 no signal on 4940 — Ivo Ivanov“

Ivo, you heard no signal at 1200 probably because the daylight has already come to the transmitter area and the propagation disappeared. I heard the signal at 1050 but then I left the KiwiSDR receiver on Bonaire. The access is 180 minutes/day and my limit was over at that time. Karel“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 28 at 0108, R. Progreso is AWOL again after having stayed back on for a few nights. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5081 & 5122 approx., Sept 28 at 0111, distorted spurblobs out of 5040, now about 41 kHz intervals despite 5085 WTWW-2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Sept 28 at 1345, zero signal from RHC here, while 15140 is S9, the SSOB by far and almost the OSOB. 15230 is supposedly scheduled 1200-1500 for western N America per EiBi, but when on is always much weaker than 15140 supposedly for S America. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 379-MCW kHz, Sept 27 at 0614 UT, ND beacon BRA, which is 400 watts from Asheville – Broad River NC. I was tuned to 377-USB. 379 normally occupied by much closer RUE, Russellville AR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 475-CW kHz, Sept 27 at 0629 UT, JBA very slow Morse as WA4SZE, maybe more in the loop but I stop once I have the call. It`s the BEACON by Dave Frantz, Manchester TN at the WWRB SW 5050 site. I tune across here almost every night, but last time heard this was May 31 and before that last December 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2053 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday September 28 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 28 at 0145 the 0130 on WRMI 7780: VP S7 and noisy at UTwente, S9/+5 sufficient at Maine SDR; VP S9 and undermodulated direct; also VG on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 28 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, good S9/+10 at Maine SDR; and on 5800 also S7-S9; and S8/S9+10 with some storm noise at Brasília SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 28 from 0302:13 on Area 61 via WBCQ 6159.9, poor S5-S7 at Edinburgh IN SDR, -25 Hz carrier, after jazz running past 0300 and no ID between, but fadeout by 0307! Earlier at 0258, no signals into Rochester, Alexandria SDRs. Direct at 0323 still S5-S7 poor and measured 6159.898.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 28 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, S7-S8 mostly atop Cuban pulse jamming at Bonaire SDR, same at 0359 finish. Checked direct at 0325, 9955 had been JBA.

Propagation has been degraded, as WWV reported:
“Solar-terrestrial indices for 27 September follow.
Solar flux 74 and estimated planetary A-index 24.
The estimated planetary K-index at 0300 UTC on 28 September was 5.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level occurred.“ Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 27 at 0557-0604: 549, 558, 576, 603(2), 612*, 621, 639(2), 657, 684*(2), 693, 747, 774(2), 792, 801, 837, 846(TP), 855(2), 927, 936(2), 999, 1044, 1098, 1125(2), 1134, 1143, 1152, 1179, 1305(2), 1710(domestic). (2)= at least two beating; * = strongest: guessing about those: 612, Morocco 300 kW; 684, Spain 600 kW, and slightly off-frequency-minus compared to e.g. 693 carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 28 at 0546: only a few much weaker than usual: 684, 711, 747(2), 774, 837, 846(TP), 891, 1125(2). Degraded propagation; WWV reported:

“Geophysical Alert Message
Solar-terrestrial indices for 27 September follow.
Solar flux 74 and estimated planetary A-index 24.
The estimated planetary K-index at 0600 UTC on 28 September was 5.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level occurred.“
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7525-7545, Sept 28 at 0104, DRMish noise centered at 7535, but nonesuch scheduled around here; and certainly not the VMW WA meteo fax as listed in EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1625 UT September 28
