Glenn Hauser logs June 8-9, 2021

** CUBA. 5040, June 8 at 0605, S9+20 of dead air from RHC; the rest of The Cuban Five: 6165 is also dead air in English, S9+10. 6100 is off; 6060 humbuzz; 6000 still on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13638 & 13762 approx., June 8 at 1413, weak spurblobs with F# tone but no program modulation, out of modulated 13700-AM RHC Spanish, at plus/minus ~62 kHz offsets; but no further multiples audible. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. In order to cite a precise cutoff time of the q.v. UGANDA [non] on 15170, I then tune the same UTwente to 9996 for RWM to calculate how much internet delay there may be and also as a correxion factor for my watch. No timesignals audible on 10000, but RWM is quite good. Unfortunately it`s running a continuous carrier 1534-1538. What good is that, when it could be ticking or pipping?? 1538 silence; 1539 the minute of RWM CW IDs over and over. 1540 resumes pips, some doubled, with extended one at tops of minutes such as 1541:000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UGANDA [non]. And I do mean non! Another check of 15170 with test transmissions at 1500-1530, Tue June 8: tune-in 1501 via UTwente, seems the same technically as other days despite far different IRRS “MIL“ azimuth registered for Tuesdays only. Is on exactly 15170.000, a datum which might in itself be significant in pinning it on a site. But today, not a word about Uganda politix! Instead country/rock songs in English at first, S9+15; 1510 cut to `Astronomy-cast`, weekly program #605, informal discussion between unID OM host and YL expert Pamela, first about telescopes on rockets. Keeps going until chopped off the air at 1529:04*.

This is typical IRRS programming, presumably continuous on webcast, pulling fragments of various webprograms/podcasts at odd times to fill out the “schedule“. Most of them probably unaware of their worldwide SW audience! Now will there be anything on Wednesday, the only DOW skipped in HFCC registrations?

Here`s that podcast, total time 1:00:35: http://www.astronomycast.com/2021/05/ep-605-sounding-rockets/ leads to YouTube where we may also see the duo in split-screen

AstronomyCast episode 605: Sounding Rockets. Transcriptions provided by GMR Transcription Services “Fraser: Welcome to AstronomyCast, our weekly facts-based journey through the cosmos, where we help you understand not only what we know, but how we know what we know. I’m Fraser Cain, publisher of Universe Today. With me as always is Dr. Pamela Gay, a Senior Scientist for the Planetary Science Institute, and the director of CosmoQuest. Hey Pamela! How you doing?“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also RUSSIA

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

** U S A [and non]. 12050, June 8 at 1528, WEWN Spanish is back here after several days on 12040, so it my collide again with Ndarason at 19-21. Current EiBi as of June 5 already had them moved to 12040. Tnx to tip from Rick Barton, AZ.

Just after 19 UT I explore how they share/collide via various remotes: Bonaire, only WEWN VG; Buenos Aires, and Namibia, neither! TWR South Africa is always “blocked“ when I go to it; is it just me, or everyone? There are no remotes anywhere near Chad, but Kuwait is getting Ndarason only, well from Woofferton.

After 2000 I check 12050 on the portable PL-880 here: WEWN is atop but considerable QRM from RNI/WOF underneath (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6115, June 9 at 0040 and still 0044, dead air from WWCR-1, or rather occasional traces of distorted modulation peaks. Wiggle that patchcord! How can anystation expect anyone to listen, or more pertinently, anyone to pay for airtime, when no one at the station itself is constantly monitoring to be sure there are no problems?? Scheduled during this hour is `Financial Survival`, ha2, tsk2. Refund? Now entering 33rd year on air, act still not together.

WWCR traditionally modifies its transmission schedule by June, and the current one dated May 29-August 31 is now shown at https://www.wwcr.com/transmitter-sched.html Nothing exciting, but there may have been some shifts in timespans of the same old frequencies; I have not tried to compare with the previous one, no longer exhibited (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0132 UT June 9
