Glenn Hauser logs November 21, 2020 [more]

** CHINA [and non]. 7545, Nov 21 at 1353, two Chinese stations mixing at almost same level, i.e. CNR1 jamming and VOA Mandarin via PHILIPPINES at 1300-1500. The ChiCom obviously have no shame, no sense of fairness, as USA allows CRI in unimpeded via CUBA on SW and even on domestic AM/FM stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 21 at 1523, CRI English relay at S9+30 but undermodulated and hummy. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba but USA would never dream of jamming it, unlike vice versa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Nov 21 at 0714, RHC English is still on here at S6-S9, better than // 6000; so supposed to run until 0800? But Ivo Ivanov says it cut off at 0735* and 6000 at 0710*[?]. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

BTW, I missed it, but several others caught RHC on 6950 around 1400 Nov 21, which looks like a keypad punchup error by sloppyrator for new 9650 at 1200-1600, which was not to be heard. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PRIDNESTROVYE. 11530, Nov 21 at 1527, Dengê Welat at S5-S8 in presumed Kurdish with long/short path echo. Annoying as it may be, a sign of improving propagation when a signal reach us both ways. Assuming this is not the Turkish jammer, distance from Grigoriopol`, Moldova to Enid is 5805 statute miles short, so long path 24900 minus 5805 = 19185. Difference between 19185 and 5805 is 13380 miles. At lightspeed of 186 kmiles/second, the echo delay computes to 0.072 second, or about one fourteenth of a second. Sounds about right (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 404-MCW kHz, Nov 21 at 0725, ND beacon XCR, which is 25 watts from Little Falls – Camp Ripley, Minnesota, between St. Cloud and Bemidji in central MN. I was tuned to 402-USB. New log here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21220-USB, Nov 21 at 1918, KA2ABA in western New York, Steve, calling CQ after a contact with California. DXMAP shows sporadic E MUF over central USA up to 25 MHz, but that may have been double hop. 1919 contacts WC6H in Valley Springs, also audible here circa midpoint. OSOB until algo on 21300-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18158-USB, Nov 21 at 1922, N4UT calling for check-ins before a 1930 net, but what? Calls from all over US, widely variable strengths. Retry 1947 finally names it, “Ole Miss 17 meter net“. 26 stations are on the work-list, he will run thru so each may call another. More at omiss.net. N4UT admits he is in Virginia. Is this for alumni, or what? Apparently nothing to do with Oxford, rather stands for OM International Sideband Society. Does this mean YLs are excluded? Apparently for expediting award-chasing such as WAS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 17700, Nov 21 at 1924, huge S9+20/30 signal slightly overmod/distorted in French with heavy African accent, got to be VOA Grimesland NC – not noticed before but in B-20 HFCC for one hour daily at 1900-2000, 250 kW almost due east and plenty to the west. Also a lite long-path echo which is getting close to the max from a site short-path so close. Soon to interviewer speaking proper French.

Is it // 15730? Seems same but far out of synch and much weaker, chopping off at 1928*. 17700 still going past 1930 but with a program change. Then I find 15730 back on much stronger than before, S9+20 and now it is in synch with 17700; discussion about Burkina Faso. Yes, 15730 makes a site switch from BOTSWANA to GB at 1930, but it is anything but smooth (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2061 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November 21 at 1327 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, S8-S9 but poor here. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Sat Nov 21 at 1529.5, WRMI-3 with edited classic WNYW ID mentioning SW target countries including United Arab Republic: the union of Syria and Egypt which lasted only 1958-1961y altho Wikipedia elucidates: “a sovereign state in the Middle East from 1958 to 1971. It was initially a political union between Egypt (including the occupied Gaza Strip) and Syria from 1958 until Syria seceded from the union after the 1961 Syrian coup d’état  —  leaving a rump state. Egypt continued to be known officially as the United Arab Republic until 1971“.

At 1530, 9955 starts in Spanish, but immediately blasted away by switch to Brother Hystairical incomprehensible rant, as TOMBS is extended Sabbathdays only past 1500 on several other frequencies for live disservice until 1700; yet sked is contradictory about 9955, still showing 1500-1530 S&S as `Full Gospel Hour`, with Blalock the Blaster, but I just missed confirming whether he was really still Touretting before 1529. Skedgrid also shows besides the daily TOMBS frequencies 1700-2100, 5800 also stays on Saturdays only. Confirmed at 1800 via TWR Key West KiwiSDR, *much* better than JBA 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 11252-USB, Nov 21 at 1342-1345*, 2-way in Spanish, reception good enough from both sides, but I can`t figure out what they are talking about, and wonder if even a native speaker could. Light QRM from VOLMET by YL on 11253-USB, which is getting a lot more QRM from this, i.e. RAF somewhere in UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2026 UT November 21
