Glenn Hauser logs January 9, 2021

** BULGARIA. 11600, Jan 9 at 1505, S3-S7 of dead air, presumably TOMBS as scheduled 15-17 UT; altho SOH and CNR1 jamming also could be here, but not much coming from thataway. Not unusual for Brother Scare`s satellite feed linx to fail, leaving SW transmitters, including US ones, with dead air, no one paying attention or ready to switch to webfeed backup; who cares? And this is during Sabbathday disservices, no less, oh my! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Jan 9 at 0715, RHC English still on and VG S9+10 with an American? commenting on Capitol terrorism; also 0722 on 6100 at S9+20; and at 0726, 5040 open carrier still on at S9+20/30. You never know whether any of them will be on after 0700 and if so whether for the full final hour. May depend on whether sloppyrators have dozed off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13575, 13638 approx., Jan 9 at 1457, extremely distorted spurblobs with F# tone from RHC 13700-AM, not very strong, while on the plus side, 13763 is S7; at 62-63 kHz intervals, next one up should be around 13825, but not detectable vs huge 13820 Radio Martí. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Jan 9 at 0718, no signal from VON; unknown if on 11770- instead, 25m dead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Jan 9 at 1456, K6FRC HIFER beacon is JBA, but always noteworthy as a 1.8-milliwatt transmitter from Patterson, California. None others audible in the ISM band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2068 monitoring: not confirmed Saturday Jan 9 at 1300 on WRMI 15770, zzz. Did anyone hear it? Probably Ken Zichi will report it eventually from habitual monitoring along with SW Radiogram. Next:

** U S A. 5800, UT Sat Jan 9 at 0324 check, WRMI with `Freedom Synergy Radio` concluding and probably going on to another episode at 0330; an `open` hour where it seems FSR may appear on no/short notice instead of whatever else be scheduled; so beware UT Tuesdays vs Wavescan and WORLD OF RADIO. This one had a New Year message so seems fairly recent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, Jan 9 at 0728, WRMI reads S9/+10 but muffled audio undermodulated, and I`m not even sure of language before goes into music; then unseems // any other WRMI frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505.00, Sat Jan 9 at 0327, weak gospel huxter in English, poor S5-S6 barely above S5 noise level. Got to be reactivated WRNO after long absence: I last logged it Oct 22 & 27, and found it missing when checked Nov 10 & 18. MARE SWBC summary shows Harold Frodge last had it on some unknown October date (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search: quite a while since I have done this as a night-owl sleeping past sunrise here; but Jan 9 I happen to be awake by 1350 UT so I check anyway altho the sun has just arisen at 1343, which is just past the earliest of the year at 1344. On the hand-held DX-398 with internal antenna only and battery power, I do hear plenty of carriers as 9-kHz tuning is slightly offset minus, audiblizing each where they exist: not exactly in the order tuned: 594, 693, 729, 747, 774, 828, 873, 972, 1044, 1053, 1089, 1134, 1242, 1287, 1566. All checked loop NW from E Asia rather than WSW from D Under, as apropos for mid-winter/summer.

Likely sources are: 594, 693, 747, 774, 828, 873, NHK Japan superpowers; 972, 1134, 1566, Korea South; 729 Japan 50 kW, or China & Vietnam each 200 kW; 1044, China 600 kW; 1053, Japan or China 50 kW; 1089, China 600 kW; 1242, Japan 100 kW; 1287, Japan 50 kW. All glancing thru the WRTH 2021 frequency listings where the powers are outstanding.

As 1400 approaches I am still getting 747 & 774 carriers, so I hope to detect NHK time pips for a tad more certainty, but this is not to be as nearby 780 KSPI Stillwater starts clanging! music at 1359; for Pete`s sake! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1803 UT January 9
