Glenn Hauser logs April 24-25, 2021

** ANTARCTICA. Re last report, altho it was obviously on Saturday, I somehow miswrote Wed & Fri at the end. Make that Wed & Sat (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Apr 24 at 0345, R. Progreso is missing; supposed to run 0030-0400. 5025 Rebelde is still on. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.

4765, April 25 at 0028, S9+15/25 open carrier, RP must be about to sign-on. Can`t hear the 4747/4783 spurs before any modulation. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Apr 24 at 2320, RHC Spanish is back here, after jump to 9640 last night and this morning. Goodbye, Guinea (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, April 24 at 2329, this RHC is off again. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But see INDIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 5040, April 25 at 0016, JBA carrier in absence of RHC. Unless it`s a CM exciter, only other SWBC station is Jeypore, one of the few AIRs I think still active. Per VU2JOS, nominal sign-on is *0025; no early Ramazan break-fast there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6928-USB, April 24 at 2315, SSTV beepery on 6930? Could not tell reference frequency until started talking at 2315. Says he is having transmitter troubles today; more SSTV: no variation in pitches, same over and over until the end-tones, so a very boring image? 2318 “adiós, amigos, catch you on the flip side“ and maybe an unreadable ID, off. Yes, many more logs here from 2143 to 2319* first as unID, then Skunk House Radio, with Zeke: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80695.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, April 25 at 0019, “Oklahoma“ at S7-S8 — how does he know I`ve just tuned in? Must be the pirate playing songs about states in alfabetical order; 0020 the next one I don`t recognize would be about Oregon. Yes, many more logs with playlist: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80703.0.html and I, myself retuned at 0056 via Knoxville remote still hear rock music at S6-S7; 0100 “This is WTF Radio Worldwide“ and now he has reached John Denver for West Virginia “Country Roads“, but China beat him to it as I reported hearing that on 9790. O my, at 0100 he has competition from 5950 WRMI with TRSW and 5850 WRMI with Encore; what`ll I do? Compromise with classical, so rare on US SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, April 25 at 0018, JBA music at S7 = noise level; 0021 some beeps mix, QRM? Pirates seldom venture this high in “their“ band. Three other reports as 6975 unID: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80705.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 3185-USB, April 25 at 0159 UT, I tune in for one of the publicized Mystery Radio pirate broadcasts of the original recordings of Radio Pancho Villa. I`m on the Knoxville SDR at first, but that`s too close to all the storms over Georgia and Florida. I keep trying other SDRs for better S/N, but not much, in MD, MO, NY. Even in Ottawa and Fort Collins it`s too noisy. I suspect 90mb is not the best choice in spring storm season. I didn`t try the earlier broadcasts in the afternoon today as they would surely be too daytimish. Anyhow these imply coming from eastern US as are most SW pirates. If only I could hit upon a Kiwi at local range, but then I shouldn`t say so. I stick with it mostly via NA5B in Maryland for a semi-hour in order to qualify for a QSL, my copied details as vague as they may be, but surely recognizable:

0159, a 3-note “IS“ repeating
0200, Hola, hola, hola; mix of BBC? and other SW IDs; just music;
0208, yells mixed with music
0211, calling out to something/one?
0213, laughing & yelling
0215, Hello, hello, and a song
0217, cut to funny voice talking, only
0220, loop about QSL? mixing mx; briefly clear YL voice with gmail QSL address but I can`t copy it
0221, VOPV theme song as heard during the 2021 SWL Fest broadcasts; yelps & yells, VOPV ID, feedback loop, lots of weird vocal noises
0225, segué to trumpet tune; then “turn it down!“ 2 or 3 times;
0226, distorted voice, can`t understand much, “all f–ed up“
0227, guitar & C&W tune in English

So far I have heard no mention of one “Glenn Hauser“ who is allegedly invoked in many of these episodes, whew.

At 0212 I had made a quick check of 3185 on my own radio, but JBA. 0230, after putting up with awful noisy reception, I bail, hoping to hear it better somewhen other; and go to WCLV webcast for the last half of `Weekend Radio`, in pristine hifi stereo, during “I can`t wait to see you with clothes on“, by Orson Bean… I`ll get the first half after 0300 on KUCO.

O o, a quick check at 0259 break, now VOPV about worshiping in the direxion of Enid, Oklahoma. OK, since SNL is a rerun and I`ve now heard the second and first halves of Weekend Radio, at 0330 I`m back on 3185-USB, still stormnoisy via VE3HOA Ottawa remote; in a wild song. Sic transit. Note: as I finish writing this, I have not looked at anyone else`s report of same (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.5, April 25 at 0027, JBA carrier much weaker than CODAR swirshes, no doubt R. Huanta 2000 as heard several times via Bonaire remote, but this is all it can achieve direct (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. 5950, sometime after 0300 UT Sat Apr 24, WRMI with `Classic Redneck Radio` making totally irresponsible off-the-cuff remark that “vaccines will kill tens of millions of people in a few months“. Well, maybe COVID will get him totally unvaxed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, April 25 at 0100, checking WRMI via Knoxville W8BUG remote, `YROT` theme so it`s Texas Radio Shortwave, Third Mate Susan says another in the Texas Music Tribute series, asking for reports to be eQSLed; then Britrobo, or Cap`n Ric, introes an hour of Kenny Rogers, first song `Planet Texas`. O my, WTFRWW pirate still going on 6930-USB, and `Encore` classical is just starting on another WRMI, 5850; I have to compromise with the latter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9, April 25 at 0025, WBCQ still here during Area 51/61 music, with RHC splash from stronger 6165, even when tuned to LSB; yet 6155 remains vacant! Other `BCQ, 7489.9, presents us with a Yeshua fanatic; NTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun April 25 at 0023, WTWW-2 just started `TOUTA` as Bob Heil says it will be mostly music by George Wright at the Chicago? Theatre. On the PL-880, bandwidth keeps jumping narrow/wide with a mind of its own even tho locked, obscuring any distortion on the transmission, anyhow causing me not to listen (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0342 UT April 25
