Glenn Hauser logs March 10, 2021

** CUBA. 11845, March 12 at 1540 Cuban pulse jamming against nothing, despite Radio Martí having abandoned this frequency some years ago. Something`s always wrong at the incompetent and wasteful DentroCuban Jamming Command. Other broadcasters may be on to them: HFCC B-20 shows absolutely nothing scheduled on 11845. But EiBi has another jammer country, China`s CNR2 at 0100-0855 via x site. See also TURKEY [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. On March 12 I wrote to Radio Verdad: “Dr Madrid, We miss your SW signal on 4055. What are the prospects for getting it back on the air from Guatemala? Regards, Glenn Hauser“

Quickly replied: “Dear Glenn: Thank you for your concern. We are planning to repair one power module next Tuesday, in order to come back on air with 280 watts. I have acquired the mica insulators we needed for the power transistors. I am sending the other two modules to Canada to be repaired by Eng. Wayne Ralph Borthwick. The delay has been caused by the extreme negligence of our Technician. May God be with you and keep you with a good health. Dr. Édgar Amílcar Madrid, Radio Truth, Chiquimula, Guatemala, C. A.“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 6125, March 12 at 0430, VOT Turkish music filling out English hour to N America, but with heavy pulse-jamming QRM adding up to S9+10/20. Of course it`s overrun from Cuba after Radio Martí quit at 0400*. Clueless TRT frequency management has not grasped it should avoid any Martí frequency even when itself be finished. Nor 9830 hitting RTTY after 2200 in the A seasons which I bet they are about to resume. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Friday March 12 at 0705, S9+20/10 of open carrier, got to be WRMI again on air during scheduled break for some reason, as last heard about same time on Monday Feb 22. Wonder if automation be mis-programmed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12050, March 12 at 1538, S7-S9 of dead air in Spanish from WEWN; for at least a minute, so not merely long boring pause in a mass (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, March 12 at 0706, JBA S5-S6, maybe trace of modulation from presumed R. Vanuatu, 2 x 3945; also S4-S5 on 11835, 3 x 3945, the three of them now starting at 0700. I`ve been intending to seek previous fundamental 7260 until 0659 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.85V, March 12 at 0330, JBA carrier again suspected of being second harmonic of an off-frequency 1480 station. As previously reported on almost same frequency:

“UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.842, March 2 at 0207, JBA carrier, suspected second harmonic of a 1480-minus station. Later checked my previous log to find independently measured within 3 Hz:

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.839, Feb 22 at 0349, JBA carrier unseems birdie, again suspecting a second harmonic from a Latin American MW 1479.9195 but nothing that far off in mwoffsets“

Meanwhile no one else has reported it; did anyone even try? So this time I quickly go over to the KiwiSDR net looking for it at numerous remotes around USA and S America — nothing. So now I am concluding it really be birdie from a local device. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11342-USB, March 12 at 1542, 2-way, at first unID language but maybe heavily accented English from a flight, reply in real English mentioning phone patch and sending sel-call tones. But nothing more heard for 4 minutes. Numerous 11342 logs in UDXF iog up to 2018y as New York LDOC; tho maybe some other hub along whatever route this apply to. What does LDOC mean? Last Day Of Classes, Laying [sic] Down On Couch; or more likely, Long Distance Operational Control (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
