Glenn Hauser logs June 6-7, 2021

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, June 7 at 0226, music at S9 vs noise level, presumed Nowhere Radio as IDed by some here as if “6975“: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82536.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, June 7 at 0227, pumping rock music at S9; 0231 ID? missed, SSTV; 0233 hard rock; 0236 more SSTV beepery; 0237 music; 0243.5 even more SSTV to 0245*. Strangely, no HFU logs of this during this span, too much competition from the others? But one unID log starting at 0244, could be else: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82538.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6865-USB, June 7 at 0228, WWII news recordings about D-Day, June 6 being the anniversary from 1944y; mentions “New York studio of Columbia“ in contact with correspondents; occasional weak running-H2O QRM. 0248 swing music reminiscent of “Boogie-woogie Bugle Boy“ on xylophone, and more tunes; 0252 “Accentuate the Positive“; 0254 Mix Radio International ID, joint produxion with Cool AM Radio in Europe; 0258 protracted variations on “Yankee Doodle“ including a promo for buying War Bonds featuring Donald Duck. 0303 inviting e-mail reports to both stations; maybe voice of Edward R Murrow; 0320 songs, 0327 contact info again, “Taps“ until 0329*. Tnx for the show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.1, KKRD, the station with a pin on the FCC map at the SE corner of East Oak and North Third in Enid: we drive by there already June 6 at 2125 UT on the way to retrieve our Memorial Daycorations from the cemetery — and guess what, no sign of any FM mast, let alone FM transmitting antenna. Seems to be occupied by an unID warehouse, across from one of numerous Tyson buildings around Enid. I bet KKRD is really still atop the decrepit, abandoned and vacant Broadway Tower white elephant downtown. Have not tried matching geo coördinates yet: a task for another idler day

BTW, this “umlaut“ in English is not replaceable by “oe“ as if it were German. The diaeresis in French and English signifies only that the two vowels are pronounced separately. If you can`t bear accents, just omit or hyphenate. Much more about it:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1 WBFM, on the caradio at 2132 UT Sunday June 6, I am listening to KUCO-FM during the `Feminine Fusion` hour when it is rudely interrupted by loud prolonged tone and then a lo-fi flash flood warning from the NWS concerning the southern part of Oklahoma County until 7:45 pm — how precise! Since that`s not a threat here, I quick check the next two OKC stations during the FFW, and neither 91.7 KOSU nor 92.5 KOMA is airing it. May their listeners just drown?!

`Feminine Fusion` presents serious/classical music composed and/or performed by female humans; originates at WCNY-FM, Syracuse NY, hostessed by Diane Jones, who is herself a composer and performer. A thumbnail of her is here: http://www.wcny.org/radio/meet-the-hosts/

Right next to one of Marie Lamb, where altho the page is (c) 2021, still claims she hosts `DXing with Cumbre`, which was canceled many years ago. I always associated her with jazz, as in DWC theme music, but she also does classical and opera announcing. For DWC I suspected her of being a “hired hand“ rather than a DXer, never or hardly ever mentioning any catches by herself. BTW, did you know that DWC existed only because WHRI still wanted to have a DX program after they could no longer countenance the secular rational WORLD OF RADIO? Seems I have outlasted DWC, WHRI and LeSEA Broadcasting itself.

BTW, sorry, other feminines, but the only airtime of `Marion`s Attic`, Sundays 21-22 UT on WBCQ 7490 unfortunately simulcollides with FF; not to mention that that SW signal in the summer daytime is lousy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UGANDA [non]. Re the 15170 station, Richard Langley on WOR iog:

“So, this broadcast could be in support of Robert Kyagulanyi (a.k.a. Bobi Wine), the president of the National Unity Platform party, who is currently under de facto house arrest by the Ugandan military. But no mention of streaming audio or radio broadcasts at this website based in The Netherlands: https://bobiwine.com/

I remind us all that there were at least two clandestine broadcasts to or for Uganda around the time of the previous elections in 2016: Radio Lead Africa, transmitted from South Africa: https://shortwavearchive.com/archive/radio-lead-africa-march-5-2016

and Uganda Diaspora P10 Radio, broadcast from Issoudun:

https://shortwavearchive.com/archive/uganda-diaspora-p10-radio-february-18-2016-1
— Richard Langley“

Don`t forget these from year 2018!

“UGANDA [non]. 9370, Saturday June 2 at 1437, African music, strong signal as WWRB is reconfirmed here ex-15240 with R. Munansi. At 1447 I`m checking UTwente SDR for World of Radio, so also try 9370: not a bit of Munansi, but rather something in Burmese, i.e. VOA THAILAND at 1430-1530, which is surely also what the Ugandans will be hearing during this hour. At 1713 recheck back here, African music somewhat distorted at S6-S9. Saturday & Sunday daytime-only broadcasts, Tennessee toward east Canada (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9370, Sunday June 3 at 2055, R. Munansi via WWRB, presumed Luganda talk continues past 2100, but off by 2124 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)“

Continued chex the next couple weeks no longer heard it (Glenn Hauser, OK, June 6, 2021, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2089 monitoring: confirmed Sunday June 6 from 2000:40 UT on IRRS via Italia-AM 918 kHz, Villa Estense, Italy. This time I try the Kiwi in Como which does hear it S9/+5 but noisy and non-local. Also some CCI maybe Spain. Followed rock music, timesignal 4-5 seconds late as received indirectly, IRRS ID with Milano PO box.

Confirmed Sunday June 3 at 2205 on Area 51/61 webcast; but did not get to confirm whether also on SW WBCQ 6159.9v. Did anyone hear it? By 2327 that`s anyway confirmed on air, music noisy into Virginia SDR.

Missed checking the new time of Sunday 2230 on WRMI 9955! Did anyone hear it? That`s what I get for failing to set an alarum reminder.

Confirmed Sunday June 6 at 2322 the 2300 on WRMI 7780, good S9/+15 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 7 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 7 at 0130 on World Radio Network webcast for North America.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 7 at 0230 on WRMIs: 7780 S9 vs storm noise; 5800 S9+10/20 better vs storm noise. Next not until Wednesday!

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support: thanks this week to Doug Brown, London, Ontario, for a generous cheque on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; and comments:

{I am too modest to keep repeating these in every report for a week; but you may see them in original report}

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. In my previous report, as Ron Howard outpoints, the RV 7260 frequency is not 2 x 3945, which is 7890; I meant to say “7260 x 1“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) Gotta have an error to correct eachly?

UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIALS from a new WOR iog member:

“Hello. I was first introduced to shortwave radio by my dad when I was ten. I had gotten away from it for quite a few years but I’m suddenly finding that I’m regaining interest in it again as I acquired a couple of my dad’s radios after he died a few years ago.

Btw, I remember your World of Radio shows from when I was a kid and I’d like to thank you for the years of service you’ve dedicated to keeping all of us informed.
