Glenn Hauser logs February 23-24, 2021

** BRAZIL. 11905-11910-11915, Feb 24 at 0338 and earlier chex this hour, RNA DRM noise JBA via Bonaire SDR, but waterfall shows it`s there as the SSOB and virtually the OSOB on 25m. Only S5 and will not even start to decode partially. Is it propagation, or a reduxion in parameters? Was not getting it last night either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CRIMEA. 5916.0-CW, Feb 24 at 0313, bandscanning 49/50 mb via TWR Bonaire SDR, I hit upon some automated CW here QRMing weak broadcast music station on 5915.0, presumably Zambia. Never caught an ID but may have been one a few minutes later when switched to hand-keyed? EiBi has the answer: Russian navy, RCV, 24 hours from se site for SE Europe, i.e. “Sevastopol 44N56-34E28“, which is really in Crimea, its major port, not Russia; and in both Ukrainian and Russian the name ends with a soft-sign, so append that apostrophe! Sevastopol`. It`s the largest city in Krim, and not to be confused with the second-largest but capital, Simferopol`, which used to host (disinformation?) a R. Moscow transmitter site. And what does the -opol` suffix mean?

BTW, I can`t help but notice that this Bonaire KiwiSDR altho above average in most respects, suffers from some local noise blobs especially on this band, which I find peaking roughly 15 kHz wide, like 5812-5827, 5876-5885, 5942-5958, 6010-6025, 6076-6091, 6140-6155, i.e.. about 65 kHz intervals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Feb 23 at 1539, RHC is S9 fading to S1 but just barely modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13836 S2 F# tone, 13768 best, 13633 S3, Feb 23 at 1540, spurblobs out of 13700-AM which is S8-S9 but JBM like 15140, ending `Sonido Cubano` music show. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Feb 24 at 0006 and still 0020, Spanish is still on despite European service supposed to run 2100-2400* only per EiBi, and so it`s // 13740, nominally 2200-0500 for S America; but both VG signals here. Something`s always wrong at RHC. I was checking 13750 for R. Thailand English to North America, but ha2, JBA as always (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

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

** U S A. 1509.837 approx., Feb 24 at 0159 UT, big het tuned to 1510-AM, no doubt caused by KCTE Independence MO, as discussed at length last time, which thinx it`s OK to be a daytimer at night and off-frequency to boot? Well, yes, if it weren`t OK, the FCC would have caught and fined them multiple times in the past decade, right? This time I get the frequency by zero-beating (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1539.96 approx., Feb 24 at 0250 UT, usual low audible het to 1540.0 stations such as KXEL. Not as bad/off as KCTE three channels lower, but just as obvious and persistent, altho not always, KGBC Galveston TX per numerous previous logs; no idea about current format as this be its DX claim to fame (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Marginal tropo enhancement around here to Wichita KS, tnx to big warmup, Enid hi predicted 71F today Feb 23 after deepfreeze last week. Less than 200 km, to broken antenna starting at 1626 UT, I get lots of BAD signals mostly correlating with Wichita area: RF 10, 12, 20, 21, 22, 26, 28, 30, 34; and two decoding, lineups all matching rabbitears.info:

RF 15 [tnx to prolonged absence of KTBO OKC]:
3-1, KSNW-DT with NBC Today
3-2, T`Mundo [=Telemundo with an apostrophe] 3-3, ION [for now] 3-4, TCN [True Crime Network]

RF 31, CoL Derby KS
31-1, KDCU-DT [Spanish, = Derby, Cansas, Univision] 31-2, Grit
31-3, Escape [lower right bug: Mystery] 31-4, Laff
31-5, Court
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
