Glenn Hauser logs January 9-10, 2021

** PHILIPPINES. 9794.97 approx., Jan 9 at 2304, really nice gospel harmonies by a small choir, led by one singer in unknown language so I cannot be converted, strong S9-S6 but considerable fading; 2307-2309+ change of key and another hymn. O yeah, it`s FEBC in Mon as logged recently, way offbeam from westward target (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Sat Jan 9 around 2315 I noticed VOT English to us, successfully sending. But at 0028 UT Jan 10, jon collins, birmingham, uk, notified me: “the mighty kbc and the voice of turkey in german mixing on the same freq 5960 kHz from 00:00 utc, kbc under trt“

I reply and post: “Indeed, at 0036 at UTwente Turkish music is atop; 0038-0039 at Maine and Missouri SDRs, KBC atop but with heavy SAH and CCI under. Worse further inland where KBC is not as strong. I told them so! That this would happen if KBC insisted on using 5960. Glenn“

John Figliozzi on the WOR iog: “There are hectares of empty space on the shortwave bands — even 49 meters. It’s a testament to idiocy that stations can’t seem to find it and end up on top of each other. Of course, this has been a week with a fetid oversupply of idiocy, starting with the excrement in the White House.“

roger in germany replies: “I think that was not something planned. Somebody ? fell asleep and forgot to pull the plug. ;-)“

“Yes, but it happens again and again. Tonight still on well past 0100 after TRT switch to Portu/Brazuguese, as on TRT World web and satcast. Glenn“

More about that: at 0054, TRT is signing off in German with a bunch of satellite frequencies. Per WRTH 2021, the only SWBCs in GG are hours at 1230 & 1830 on other frequencies. IS plays but still does not go off air; 0056 and 0059 VOT IDs in Portuguese! 0100 timesignal and opening PP. I think they gave the date a 10 de junho, not janeiro, at 2230 or 0330? local time. Then long list of satellite frequencies and parameters, mostly for Europe but ending with a Galaxy to North America. This has taken 2.5 minutes before they can get around to the news(?) which lasts only 4 minutes 0103-0107. OM continuity announcer speaks with Luso accent, YL with news Brazilian, Then she starts voicing a feature. By now I have found the proper webcast with same programming, via WOR Hitlist, “TRT VOT World“: which is accompanied by some kind of schedule but nothing about foreign languages. Also searching on Deutsch, nothing about SW there, but were beta-testing German, on TV. In fact, there is no SW info at all to be found on the TRT websites.

At 0124 I finally try 5960 direct, and find a heavy SAH and CCI between KBC and TRT, adding up to S9+10/20. By 0141, KBC is finally in the clear with TRT closed down when the sleepyrator woke up. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun Jan 10 at 0155, WRMI wrapping up `Encore` classical music hour, VG as always thisaway and now // JBA 7780 thataway; and not 5010. Too much excitement from Turkey+ et al. this hour on 5960, so need to catch the Tumbril repeat UT Monday 0300-0400 on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6160-, UT Sun Jan 10 at 0200, WBCQ #?, with out-of-context bits voiced by Allan & Angela, parody starting with “Biden will never be president“, mixed with duck-faced trombone rude SFX; to open `Lumpy Gravy` with cosmikdebris and jane. Says this is live on Jan 9. 0206 skip is getting long beyond Maryland, so shoutout to John Carver in Indiana, from whom we have not heard in quite a while; 0207 “anxiety montage“. Good signal here while 7490.18v is JBA. Another show worth more hearance on busy Saturday nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 9 at 2259, WTWW-2 already on with hamstuff, as usual on Saturdays; Jan 10 at 0123 not yet but by 0135, TOUTA is playing at S9+40/30 but with horrible distortion level, more so oro more noticeable than during rock music; and it`s not convenient to switch to $tereo webcast which lax the distortion; also some hum which may have been on the original recording (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re TP carrier search Jan 9: 1344 UT was the year`s latest sunrise here of course, not the earliest (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6948-AM, Jan 10 at 0212, S8-S9 carrier with some lite beepery but not SSTV; pirate? Nothing in HFU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7850-USB, Jan 9 at 2259, 2-way USB weak QRM to CHU CANADA; maybe in Spanish, and not the first time. No “standard frequency“ reservation for this (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13800, Jan 9 at 2311, JBA carrier, suspected RHC leapfrog mixing product of 13680 over 13740 another 60 kHz beyond, which are S9+20 and +30 respectively; but this too weak to match altho maybe a trace of music when Cubans were talking. But nothing fundamental is scheduled here now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0518 UT January 10
