Glenn Hauser logs March 26-27, 2021

** AUSTRALIA. 12365-USB, March 26 at 1444, down-under accent with marine weather, S1-S3; lots of geo coords cited such as 50S/134E, which is about halfway between South Australia and Antarctica; high seas forecast. EiBi shows it`s VMC Charleville, Queensland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, March 26 at 0614, RHC in English with humbuzz, // clear 6100 and overmodulated 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, March 27 at 0140, RHC manages correct language English, tonight, instead of TV novela audio last night, S9+20 here // 6000 S9+40 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12360, March 27 at 0141, CRI English relay is S9, harmonic of S9+20 6180 X 2. Also checked X 3 = 18540 but not heard; possibly with a little sporadic E. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also USA [non] 6080

** GUATEMALA. 4055, March 27 at 0139, no signal from R. Verdad: gone again. A report to the WOR iog at 0609 UT March 26: “Radio Verdad, Chiquimula, out of air again — Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain: Asking via email, Édgar Madrid says transmitter burned out again. Here the mail from the station: “Se nos volvió a quemar. En eso estoy. Édgar Madrid”“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, UT Sat March 27 at 0129, S6-S8 pirate music, bet it`s Ball Smacker Radio, which with eQSL last week said they`d be back Fridays at 9 on EDT on this frequency. Pirates not usually so open about scheduling plans, but getting bolder in view of lack of FCC SW enforcement. Some rapid-clicking QRM for a minute or two until 0134. 0137 yes, B-S-R- ID by YL and QSL offer prompting guesses about the musical topic, like last week it was “green“, but I don`t recognize any of the tunes this week until 0152, “Who Ya Gonna Call?“, a song with spoken parts, faux phone number sounded like 1-500-989-3500. 0200 again asking for reports, signing off? Not quite, more music, then 0205 SSTV now hitting S9+10. Pause and 0207 another SSTV image ending at 0209 and carrier off at 0209.5*. Now let`s see what others reported at: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,79542.0.html Keyword has been “call“ and SSTV shows `Get Smart` with shoephone (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1140, March 26 at 1755 UT on caradio, NO signal from KRMP OKC; sure it`s off as when on, 1 kW groundwave is equal to or greater than 1150 KSAL KS, and much more than 1120 Tulsa. Recheck on DX-398 at home, 2223, now it`s on with “Heart & Soul 92.1 and 1140,“ OKC traffic. 92.1 is, natch, a mere translator wagging this dog.

While it was off, wished I were in a low-noise area in case GW or SW remnant of KXRB Sioux Falls could make it here, as it has been at night when not supposed to: unlikely, but half its frequency 570 WNAX Yankton SD is always audible under KLIF. Nothing directly between OK and SD on 1140 but MO and AR might be problem; and closer 50 kW 1110 KFAB Omaha barely daytimes here (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Fri Mar 26 at 2331, VOT is on today, VG S9+35 into UTwente, yet Chinese undercurrent is audible from East Turkistan, standard remark, i.e. CCCCCCI, or C6I which means ChiCom Chinese language Co-Channel Interference. VOT plugs itself as “with you every hour of the clock“ [NO, it is not], then 2-minute segment, “Did You Know That?“, but no idea about what, as I was not severely concentrating vs the heavy accent. A bit of music, 2339 “VOT, always by your side“ [No, it is not]. Checked again at 2355 as IS is still playing, 2356 starts interspersing IDs in German, “Die Stimme der Türkei“ twice or thrice before 0000 March 27 opening the spurious German hour with Nachrichten rather than satellite info. Still on past 0015, but finally went off sometime before next check 0026 when a good signal is still on the meter, but now in Chinese. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 6080, March 26 at 0612, VOA SAO TOME in English, marred by pulse jamming. I think I have figured it out: leapfrog mixing product of the strong jammers against nothing on 5980 and 6030 another 50 kHz away. Broadcast signals leapfrog; why not jammers? Something`s always wrong at the DCJC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

First broadcasts confirmed UT Friday March 26 at 0130 on WRMIs: 7780 S7-S9 poor here off the side and seems undermodulated, but VG on 5850, S9+20/30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat March 27 from 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW` casually monitored as I am paying more attention to MSNBC. Starts with temp 80 in FLA after hi of 90? First topic is cassette tapes, sparked by news of death of inventor. This goes on surprisingly long, still 0024, caller 0025, into EL versions, 8-trax, etc. 0047 Angela complaining about masked people in fast cars. Too much of the time Angela is yelling and overmodulating into the red, even worse when both of them are talking at same time with no stereo separation. 0056 Allan briefly mentions death of George Zeller, a supporter of free radio, 0059 benedixion and immediately into Hal Turner blasting pencil-necked geeks. Here`s John Carver`s version:

“Tonight’s show started on time on 6160 and 7490 with 6160 having the better signal. Allan and Angela in the studio and apparently back in FLA again. Allan is shirtless in the studio. Opening talk is reading an article about the man that invented the cassette tape and later CDs. Long talk about cassette tapes follows and they mention several variations.

Phone call at 0026 which continues the cassette talk followed immediately by another call at 0037 which continues on with the cassette talk until the caller mentions politics which gets Angela started. She continues till 0052 when Allan starts reading emails. First email is political which causes Angela to comment again. A few emails later Allan mentions the loss of George Zeller and talks of him briefly. Closing prayer at 0059 and closing comments cut off at 0100 and move to dead air as happened last week also. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, March 27 at 0157, two WRNO Worldwide IDs overlapping as I tune in, asking for reports, but cut off 0159 to start “Welcome to Maranatha Radio with pastor Ray Bentley“ citing Philippians. Had been VP to JBA signal lately but now it`s S9+20; jacked up closer to full power or just improved propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540.197 approx., March 27 at 0217 UT, way-off-frequency het against 1540.00 stations is back, as previously traced, WKVQ, Eatonton, Georgia. Not present every night, and should never be as a 10 kW daytimer direxional west (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12152-USB, March 27 at 1443, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, QRMing CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
