Glenn Hauser logs January 15-16, 2021

** CUBA. 9699.879, Jan 16 at 0227, RHC English way off-frequency and relatively weak S5-S7; same as happened this morning to 13700-minus before I could measure it, surely same transmitter. This kind of anomaly rarely happens, but has before to make things more interesting. All other RHC frequencies checked are within a few Hz of nominal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 5870-5875-5880, Jan 15 at *2330-2400*, RFI DRM cuts on and off at these precise minutes, not *2300. I set up Bonaire SDR early, tuned for DRM and heard silence until 2330. Then there was music, and after 2333 mostly H&F discussion in French, only S7-S8 but enough, few if any dropouts, labeled: S/N 14.7 dB; mode B; Chan 10 kHz; 16 QAM; 8.08 kbps; TDF. Did not check Jan 14; see detailed discussion in previous report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 15 at 2301, still no signal from REE`s North American beam when English should be airing on Friday. Several others have noticed it missing for a few days, maybe because of massive snowstorm? I`m checking via Bonaire SDR. But there is a VP S4-S6 signal on 11940, the South American beam which should be much better there; recognizing the casual voice of Justin Coe but not whatever he be saying (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6200-RCUSB, Jan 16 at 0001, frenetic music with voiceovers, VP S4 to Bonaire SDR nearby where ROCV should be better. No one else has mentioned that this is on USB only, no LSB, but with reduced carrier detectable by off-minus tuning, just like 6906v was, same transmitter presumably. When tuned in Synch AM mode, carrier offset is shown varying up to 8 Hz mostly on the plus side. By 0007 has improved to S5-S6; by 0205, JBA S3 music in USB, so not yet Tibet.

Oh2, at 0217 Jan 16, I am checking 6200 direct but mainly hearing two-way in Spanish on USB above the JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Jan 16 at 0241-0244: this time I am tuning the MW band in AM mode, 10 kHz steps, merely noting where I can detect a 1 kHz het, and not bothering to ascertain whether it`s above or below the domestic frequencies, but well-assuming these: 711, 819, 891, 909, 981, 1089, 1179. I would also have expected at least 531 and 621, but bottom of band suffers high line noise level peak (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0511 UT January 16
