Glenn Hauser logs April 22-23, 2021

** CHINA. 9480, April 22 before and after 1830, S6-S3 in French, i.e. CRI at 18-20 via Xianyang 59 site in north central China, of all places, 500 kW, 317 degrees toward France. VP reception today, hardly anything else extracontinental on any band except 13670 Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, April 22 at 0446 past 0506 UT and later, dead air from KOSU instead of `The Spy`; everyone asleep depending on automation? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SUDAN [and non]. 7205, April 23 at 0301, S8-S9 open carrier, surely Sudan Radio, Omdurman; someham pretends to be AM by tuning his LSB-only signal here, but no QRM on USB. At prime time in the morning, also JBA carriers on 7180 > 7140 presumed VOBMEritreans. By 0328 maybe trace of music. 0342 I switch to UTwente SDR in Holland, where 7205 is S9 but clearly barely modulated, occasional talkwords peaking, 0345 bit of music. WRTH says irr. from *0300; Eibi says from *0257; Aoki from *0200. At 0350 & 0356, I JB hear some Horn-of-Africash music. A 4+1 timesignal at 0400 cuts thru, 11 seconds late. Don`t rely on this for navigation! Then some mumbletalk, news in Arabic? I daresay even nearby one would have to turn the volume up full and hope for the best. Dumps off air abruptly at 0405:15*. I switch to offset BFO to hear any carrier come back, which it finally does at *0423, again/still, JBM. I must also say, the FPU stations do a much better job of broadcasting to Sudans from outside. Manuel Mendez, Spain, hears 7205 in his evenings, and also the external service grandiosely appelled “Voice of Africa“ on 9505 going from French to English at 1715. I wonder if that modulation be any better (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2082 monitoring: a delayed report from Ken Zichi, Michigan about Saturday April 17 at 1300: “15770 WRMI FL Okeechobee w/’crash start’ in the middle of SW Radiogram #200 repeat. Missed GH’s WOR and the first minute or so of the Radiogram. 3+4+4+44 *1332-1400 17/Apr RSPdx +SDRuno +FLDigi +randomwire –Zichi MI2“
