Glenn Hauser logs January 11-12, 2021

** CANADA. 266-MCW kHz, Jan 11 at 0651 UT, dash and XD, 32-watt ND beacon at Edmonton, Alberta. City distance to Enid is 1403 miles, so 43.8 miles per watt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 5870-5875-5880, Jan 11 at 2348, surprised to hear DRM noise here S9, stronger than Romania on 6035-6040-6045, but nothing scheduled anywhere on 5875. I hasten to a DRM-capable SDR, one in Rochester NY, and there it is, loud & clear, 100% copy with SNR circa 19 dB, discussion in English about Hungarian composer Kodály Zoltán [BTW, accents in Hungarian do not denote stress] with voice-overs in French. By 0000 Jan 12 sounded like they mentioned “astronomie afrique“ or haha, more likely gastronomie -, ID in French as R-F-I, and off*. The visual DRM display did *not* include any ID. RFI is not scheduled on 5875 this season at any time in any mode. Site not positive either, but no reason to believe it`s not ISSoudun. No mention of this in drmna.info or the iogroup. Wonder if it will be back tomorrow (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA [and non]. 7380, Jan 12 at 0158, S9+10/20 of S Asian music and YL sign-off giving e-mail in S Asian language, 0200 dead air until 0202.4*. It`s AIR at 0100-0200 via Bengaluru in Sindhi, for Pakistan. Via Bonaire SDR I was checking 7375 whether Radio Onda Corta Venezuela had come back, but only big adjacent splash from this. By 0230, Iran is opening Arabic on 7380, weaker (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2068 monitoring: confirmed Monday January 11 from about 1901 UT on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria. No precise timings since I am recording off UTwente for later listening. Sign-on just before 1900 again falsely claims this is in reduced-carrier SSB, a few FSN headlines, then WOR. Splash from 7295 & 7280 are worse than usual and IRRS is weaker than usual, making it a chore to listen. Recheck circa 1925 finds 7290 has faded even more to JBA, so I switch to SDR in Ireland, where at greater skip distance it`s S9+20 which would be sufficient but still awful inevitable splash from both sides. At least I can tell my finale by 1930 is not chopped off; in fact a brief pause before some music and then IRRS ID. Next:

0330 UT Tuesday WRMI 5800 to SSE [resumed? last few weeks was pre-empted by Freedom Synergy Radio] 1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [to be confirmed] 2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE [resumed] 2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
