Glenn Hauser logs November 30-December 1, 2020

** CANADA. 340-MCW kHz, Dec 1 at 0137 UT, dash and YY, 500-watt ND beacon at Mont-Joli, Québec; louder than my 25?-watt local EI on 341. Mont Joli is not even in closest QC but way up on the Gaspé Peninsula, right bank of the St-Laurent, 2761 km = 1715 statute miles. Not much else from Canada audible now (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6950, Nov 30 at 1500, RHC again on wrong-punch frequency, nothing on 9650; S7-S9, also with het from an open carrier on 6948.0, pirate jamming? 6950 still at 1538 but no 6948. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 6950 had also happened again the morning of Nov 29 at 1330, reported by Chris Smolinski; and by Ivo Ivanov at 1350 with a Boca Ratón SDR. Ivo also Nov 30 after 1200; and by Wolfgang Büschel at 1243 via a Rochester NY SDR where it was 4 Hz high. Would it rerepeat the evening of Nov 30? No, not heard around 0115 UT December 1. If neither frequency be heard, could be another lysdexic sloppyrator mixup, possibilities: 6590, 5690, 5960, 6059, 6095, 9560, 9605, 9506, 9065, 9056, 0569, 0659, 0695, 0956, 0965 — did I miss any? Etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 1 at 0112, RHC English is S7/S9+10 but suptorted and JBM; only possible // 9700 is JBA, maybe RHC too. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 4980, Dec 1 at 0156, JBA carrier; could WRMI-4 be back ex-silent 11710? Quick way to find out is checking the other three 60m frequencies of PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi`s four language services which always arrive as a group, and there they are, also JBACs: 5060, 4850, 4500. I was thinking it a bit late to propagate, but not, especially in winter, with LSR at 0124. That`s 9:24! local time, as the Beijing Han imperialists force all of China to go by UT+8, even the west which ought to be UT+6 by longitude; amounts to double-DST yearound. But that`s the least of Uyghur problems, facing cultural genocide and brainwashing to wipe out Islam (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Re my obs of K17JN-D Enid changes, Trip Ericson replies: “Good morning, Thanks. I’ve updated K17JN-D accordingly on RabbitEars. I’d never heard of QVTV either, but I think I tracked it down.

The way it’s supposed to work is that any program that has captions are supposed to be passed through. Local programming for small enough stations, or networks under a certain size who produce their own programming and would have to pay to have that specific programming captioned, are exempt. There’s more to it than that, but I’m not familiar with the ins and outs. Have a great one, and stay safe. – Trip“ (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 684, Dec 1 at 0140, strongest of JBA carriers, enough for some audio in Castilian, then jazz, and // 774, i.e. RNE1 network, Sevilla, and on the upper, Valencia strongest among synchros (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 475v-MCW kHz, Dec 1 at 0120 UT, WA4SZE/BEACON in very slow CW, as we are amid another sporadic spurt of activity. Easy copy as seems quite stronger than your MW/LW aerobeacons. It`s at WWRB / ATC airstrip in Manchester, TN, a plaything of Dave Frantz on the so-called 630-meter hamband (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2062 monitoring: confirmed Monday November 30 from 1900:43 on IRRS 7290 Bulgaria, S9+5/15 via UTwente. Prelude: *1856:10 open carrier on; 1859:53 IRRS ID with Milano Box, 1900:15 FSN headlines, then WOR. Usual rough modulation but intact past 1915, less splash than usual as no signal on 7295 from CRI, but still plenty from 7280 Vietnam despite 10 kHz away, especially when musicking. Best in SynchAM at 5.59 kHz bandwidth but VOV ACI inevitable. It`s S9+20 as I continue impressed by their signal into W Europe direct from Hanoi, 100 kW over an all-overland Eurasian path.

As for no 7295, HFCC shows that as 500 kW due west from Urumqi, CRI English at 1900-2000. Maybe it`s one of the transmitters off for maintenance until December 10, as they had notified German service listeners about other frequencies. Urumqi = East Turkistan, land of Chicom imperialist cultural genocide and brainwashing of imprisoned Uyghurs.

WOR 2062 also confirmed UT Tuesday December 1 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9+10 into UTwente, but VP S7-S8 here.

NOT confirmed UT Tue Dec 1 at 0200 on WRMI 9955, too poor to be sure here, but via Pardinho Brasil SDR, it`s a gospel huxter in English. WOR was unexpectedly added to sked grid at this time only a few weeks ago and still shows there; easy go, easy come.

Also confirmed UT Tue Dec 1 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG S9/+15 to Bonaire SDR. Next:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2300 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** VENEZUELA. 6906.06, Dec 1 at 0200, JBA carrier direct, looks like ROCV could be back; but nothing there when I get around to checking Bonaire SDR at 0320 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Dec 1 at 0122-0133: 531, 558, 576(2), 612, 621, 639, 684*, 693, 774(2), 801, 855(2), 882(2), 891, 909, 936(2), 954 & 963 despite 960 local, 999, 1017, 1044, 1053(2), 1107(2), 1125(2), 1152, 1179, 1215(2), 1224, 1251, 1296(2), 1305(2), 1431, 1575(2). (2) = at least two signals beating. *strongest, see SPAIN (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
