Glenn Hauser logs December 6, 2020

** ARMENIA. Re my report of KBC: “6080 kHz, direct from Yerevan“ — not Gavar?? VG reception via UTwente, not here“

Christian Milling replies on the soon to be deleted DXLD yg: “Neither Yerevan nor Gavar. The village where the transmitters are located and the postal address of the station is Noratus, Gegharkunik Province, Radio Quarter 5“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRIA [and non]. 6185, UT Sun Dec 6 at *0500, Moosbrunn on just in time for NHK English relay at weekend timing, ex-6155; makes fast SAH overriding XEPPM, which I was hearing weakly in Spanish before 0500; via Rochester NY SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 6075, Dec 6 at 1553, S9 strongest signal on band by far, the only listenable one some 2.4 hours after sunrise here, Chinese talk and plucked music to timesignal and off 1600*; meanwhile same music on 7300 if not synchronized. Aoki/NDXC for 6075 shows CNR1 jamming vs Taiwan but until 1730*; also PBS Qinghai with CNR1 too until 1600*. Furthermore, CRI in Urdu via Kashgar until 1557. None of these seem apt for pushing such a bigsig thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545+, Dec 6 at 1542, confirmed no Bayto Yaikl on Sunday, just Wed & Sat so far. Traces of 17615+ Sa`udi, 21690 France (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PHILIPPINES. 9275, Dec 6 at 1550, Chinese music S7-S9 with flutter, FEBC Bocaue at 10-16. WMLK has also reserved 9275 at 17-22, 53 degrees toward Europe, if those Yahwists ever get their new 300 kW transmitter and antenna in Bethel PA on the air (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Dec 6 at 1453, 1.8 milliwatt HIFER beacon K6FRC is JBA with ID only repeating, from Patterson CA – tuned across almost every morning, last logged October 11. Standard inquiry: is it always on the air or not? Fortunately, no spurblobblox from RHC today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2063 monitoring: not confirmed UT Sun Dec 6 between 0447 and 0600 several chex of WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, but ARNL and other ham shows, such as at 0505 `ARNL` about the Arecibo collapse. Hope WOR had aired earlier before I tuned in. Heavy CW QRM thruout, must be a 160mb contest. Next:

We hope WBCQ will be back on by 2300 Sunday, apparently missing Saturday due to nor`easter.

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support: thanks this week to Jack Amelar, NY8D, Lowell MI, who says, “Glenn, Thank you for many years of WOR and loggings which I have enjoyed and used. Enclosed find my contribution to help keep your service to the monitoring hobby going“; with a check in US funds on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to: woradio at (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. A nor`easter hit the WBCQ area on Saturday December 5, and it seems it has been knocked off the air, altho not certain, perhaps deficient propagation. 6160v, Dec 6 at 0503 check, no signal into Rochester nor here, but may have just normallyarea51

7490, I was also checking whether a conflict with WHRI, but only the latter heard on 7490.0, Dec 6 at 0455 with gospel huxter into Warrenton MO SDR I`m mainly monitoring for WA0RCR; 0503 S7-S9 gospel song.

9330, Dec 6 at 1624, no signal from WBCQ with WLC. Ivo Ivanov earlier noted it absent at 1000 when scheduled in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17790, Dec 6 at 1808, very strong S9+10/20 unfamiliar electronic interval signal, recorded. Rick Barton, AZ first reported his at 1720, then WRMI ID at 1800. Also heard by Harold Frodge, MI; Wolfgang Bueschel using Bonaire SDR, at 1751: “twin tone 17790 and 17795 kHz signal strings“. At 1812, Peter W Hansen: “17790 comes best at Bay Area California and 17795 in New York and Iceland.“

I ask Jeff White about it! “Hi Jeff, Questions I hope you can answer: 17790 — what is the origin and significance of that unfamiliar [17-note] interval signal? Is this really from Okeechobee? Which transmitter and antenna? Excellent signal here. Is this leading to a new relay client? Any other new frequencies planned? And you were running 17795 at same time? Others heard that. From another site? At 1900 ID sounded like a mixture of Spanish, and Russian?“

“Glenn: It’s a test for a one-time special transmission tomorrow [Mon Dec 7] from 1300 to 1700. I can’t really say who it’s for until tomorrow. Two frequencies: 17790 and 7570. The language was Bosnian. Yeah, it’s OK to share it. Jeff“

Further monitoring via Bonaire and direct: I`m hearing 17790 only, past 1952 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, re KVOH missing December 4, Ray Robinson of KVOH replies December 5: “Hi, Glenn. 17775 was indeed off on Thursday and part of Friday [Dec 3-4] due to a preventative Edison power cut to the area that includes the KVOH transmitter site. It will likely be off on Monday [Dec 7] too, not due to Edison, but because of some maintenance work we need to do (that can only be done when we have lights and power!). Ray.“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830 & 5085, Sunday Dec 6 at 1548, WTWW-1 & 2 are OFF, unlike in daytime yesterday; 9475 WTWW-1 is also OFF, when normally it would be on a Sunday morning. Ivo Ivanov however had heard 5085 & 5830 still on at 1000, beyond schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11709.1, Dec 6 at 1546, weak signal making a het with another on 11710.0, and flutter. Only two listed at this time are CNR1 from Beijing 572 site, and Voice of Korea [North], the latter more likely askew; Commies vs Commies! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13593, Dec 6 at 1455, very intermittent distorted spur of talk modulation; 13700 & 13740 RHC are both on but cannot make a match to them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1954 UT December 6
