Glenn Hauser logs April 26-27, 2021

** CUBA. 1040, re my question with log of R. Mayabeque, why did Cuba create two new provinces around Habana a decade ago? Wolfgang Bueschel replies: “from wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayabeque_Province#/media/File:Mapacarr_mayabeq.png

“The reduction of the distances between the municipal capitals and their provincial capital facilitates the management and procedures of the population. The capitals of the new provinces would be Artemisa and San José de las Lajas“. Tnx, NWK. Now, what does Lajas mean? Flagstones or slabs, also a TV site in Veracruz. Not clear what Saint Joseph have to do with those; wiki? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, April 27 at 0137, this RHC still SNAFU: only S9-S7 of dead air, occasional running-H2O QRM; yet too strong and too late to be India. The other Cuban 60s? 5025 at 0138 is S9+20/30; 4765 at 0139 is S9+20/30, undermodulated, distorted and with the plus/minus ~18 kHz ratchety spurblobs. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. But immediately at tune in, “La Onda de la Alegría, de La Habana“, nice progressive slogan, i.e. Castro says, You shall be happy in Commie dictatorship! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 7340-7345-7350, April 27 at 0210, DRM noise is still on from Grimesland, rather than scheduled 0200*; R. Martí for all the traitorous DRM listener in Cuba, rather than the two old-fashioned AM signals nearby. At least I don`t hear jamming noise against it, altho would be hard to tell the difference (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. eQSL received for 5185-AM, 2302-2430 UT April 25-26:

“Hello Glenn – I’m pleased you heard the real — not pirated — VPV program (episodes 2014-2021). Your report’s correct and here’s your eQSL. Look for a relay of the first 10 episodes — 1994-2003 — again this weekend. Yours truly, The Mystery Pirate, I am a mystery to myself“

https://www.w4uvh.net/MPR_VoiceofPanchoVilla_eQSL_2014-21_Hauser.pdf or #122 via: http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, April 26, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.913-AM, April 27 at 0109, S7-S9 but undermodulated talk and music with heavy beat; still past 0128. These say it`s Nowhere Radio, on air as early as 2210 April 26: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80828.0.html I also logged it 23 hours ago, last night on same frequency within margin of error (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470-AM, April 27 at 0212, the unmistakable urgent sound of Josiah, his anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH back on the air! But unreadable, too weak S9-S5, and too undermodulated.

Had been unheard since last August? But was first reported back here at 0334 April 25: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,80722.0.html I looked for him next night = last night, April 26 after 0330 but no show then. Following my notice to the WOR iogroup tonight, Walt Salmaniw replies:

“I checked several times between 04 and 05 last night, with no luck. Tonight, there he is at 0313 with the usual very low modulation/tinny audio. Fair/good level into Victoria. Unfortunately, 41 m is marred here by some local possible BPL interference between 7375 and 8065 kHz. Poor into Masset, but another hour until LSS there. Walt“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 100.7, KPNC Ponca City is tough to hear driving around Enid on caradio, tnx to mere KGWA translator on 100.9. Certain spots it`s slightly weakened, and maybe KPNC slightly strengthened. Also depends on how much KGWA is modulating per moment. FM bandwidth on PL-880 too wide; off-tune to 100.6 no help, then abutting 100.5. OKC. Circa 1919 UT April 26, I did hear a KPNC ID and a “Country 101“, no sign of KASE Austin TX as I somehow heard a biday earlier (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9850, April 27 at 0300, JBA carrier to remote in Maryland, maybe RRI English as scheduled to NAm; NO signal on 7375, 11825, or 15330-DRM. UTwente is not hearing any 7375 or 9850. Per Aoki, 9850 could also be CNR1 jamming vs Sound of Hope, or PBS Qinghai in Bod-Tibetan from Xining site.

RRI Spanish during 0200 hour also supposed to be on 4 frequencies, but none audible at Boa Vista TWR SDR: 9700, 11780=Brasil!, 11945, 15330. RRI notified Spanish listeners today that only two transmitters were down, one each at Tsiganeshti and Galbeni, as publicized on AER list:

https://www.rri.ro/es_es/dos_transmisores_estan_fuera_de_servicio-2636081

Can`t find any advisory about English: This page has schedules of several past seasons, of no use now, and also very old notices of outages, but not currently! https://www.rri.ro/en_gb/RadioRomaniaInternational/how_to_listen-309 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 17855, April 26 at 2219, during token Monday English from REE, so-called NAm frequency is JBA carrier; maybe better at Walterboro target? 15520 JBA; 11940 S6-S1 so best of the worst; 11685 JBA S1-S3. Should be on 9690;

Altho Greece 9420 also USward is not doing very well either at S3-S5. K index at 22 & 24 going up from 1 to 2, solar flux was 80, after G1 storming. Presumed toward N America, but can`t look up the azimuth or CIRAF in HFCC as ERT is another station withdrawn: only one frequency left on SW, so why bother to coördinate? I`ll tell you: to discourage others from taking it over, like Russia and China which are registered a number of hours on 9420. Azimuths are beyond the scope of WRTH and EiBi. The full Aoki/NDXC does show VOG beam angles: 323 degrees right across North America with the odd power of 170 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 26 at 2218, VOT music is VP S5-S7, no RTTY now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2083 monitoring: Richard Langley, NB, already confirms the one I missed, Sunday April 25 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, among his weekly multi-hour recording of that frequency. Next:
