Glenn Hauser logs July 11-12, 2021

** CANADA. 97.3 & 99.3, CKUA relays during huge sporadic-E opening July 11: included in full report under USA [and non], as well as 95.3 CKWD Calgary; 95.5 CHLB Lethbridge AB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13160, July 12 at 1359, JBA music, no timesignal and runs past 1400+, could be Firedragon. Gone at 1422 recheck. Before 1400, only other WOOB presumed CNR1 jammer was 13530 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 12 at 0628, humbuzz on RHC English about something, ignoring the anti-government demonstrations across Cuba; 6165 OK; 6100, 6000, 5040 all off. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 5025 Rebelde playing music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 7435 & 7335, July 12 at 0624, R. Marti in a rare extended broadcast beyond usual 0400* or 0500*, VG signals here and no jamming audible altho it often runs overtime against nothing; and also on weaker 6030. Because, of course, of the widespread and never-before anti-Communist-government demonstrations. Seems to be live discussion of this by host and various exiles if not dentro-Cubans. Assures Cuban listeners they are getting worldwide press attention; leaders blame it on the US, of course. Keeps going past 0700+ with no ID break (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, July 12 at 2300, RHC English S9+25 marred by scratchy noise and hum, something always wrong at RHC. We were wondering how they would play the outbreak of anti-Communist demonstrations around the Greatest Antille; or just ignore them? No, that`s the lead story, but of course with the Commie government spin I try to summarize. What Pres. Díaz-Canel said about it on TV. Blames the “criminal“ demos on social media and the USA waging unconventional war on the island. Emphasizes counter-demonstrations by those supporting The Revolution. One of the complaints is power outages: Matanzas power station is being repaired and should be back online Tuesday. Dig at the American “blockade“. Admits infexions are at their highest level now since pandemic started; etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 93.3, XHPS Veracruz: one Mexican during huge sporadic-E opening July 11: included under USA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re my remarx about how little Woodward has a lot more radio stations than big Enid: it still does, but Enid/Lahoma/North Enid has 6 full power, on 95.7, 96.9, 97.7, 103.1, 106.3, 107.1. Not including too many translators and LPs, sounding just as strong at local range; nor some nearby but non-Enids such as 89.7, 90.5 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR) Also some OK mixed in with Es FM DX: USA [and non]

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 12 at 2309, REE English after news, Justin Coe goes into third edition of twice-monthly `DX Program`. Obviously non-scripted, says he`s working from home where temps are above 30C, so windows are open letting in plaza noise, sirens, barx, kids, buses revving, animated discussions, but also a pleasant breeze. Anyhow, “the noise of life in the big city“.

While sufficient, the signal at S8 has some deep fades to S1, and even at peak I never hear any such noise distraxion. Also working from home, I am conscious of noise such as trains, planes, TV in the next room, but rarely detectable on my playbacks. Says the new studios at REE they can`t use have good soundproofing, but nothing like the old ones which were double-doored like a submarine.

This “DX program“ really a mailbag is all about one e-mail received 3 July, from our very own Alan Holder on the Isle of Wight, which Justin has never visited. Alan has been listening to REE since 1977. Recommends a Roberts Sircon? 94-I internet “radio“ where stations can be easily stored. Laments Alison Hughes` early retirement. They agree she has a great voice for radio [so does Justin]. Coe`s device makes a ping when a new e-mail arrives. What about her replacement, Amy Egan? Is she on permanent staff? No, semi-permanent more like an intern with lower pay for 6 months; but she is tech-savvy unlike J&A. Justin managed to get a front-row seat to a performance by Segovia in Germany, 1984-85. Still open for suggestions on title for this show, e.g. as Alan proposes: `Radio-Waves` was used before; You Write Us; We`ve Got Mail; Nos Escribe.

2222, about to play some outro music for Alan, by another guitarist, Marc Ridot whose albums JC has bought several of; this one from Songs of Resistance 1942-2018, about partisans vs Italian fascism, ref. website accompanying singer Tom Waite who has a rather croaky voice I can`t understand, finally plays at 2225 until 5+1 timesignal at 2230. Maybe this will repeat on Wednesday as happened last time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2094 monitoring: confirmed Sunday July 11 at 2013 the 2000 on IRRS via Italia-AM 918 kHz Villa Estense, via Noale nearby remote, S9+25 but high noise level there.

Missed confirming Sun July 11 at 2200 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.9, as I was engrossed in FM DX opening.

Confirmed Sun July 11 at 2253 the 2230 on WRMI 9955, quick check on caradio during FM DX monitoring. Did anyone hear it?

Also confirmed UT Monday July 12 at 0046 the 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+20/30 direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 12 at 0130 on WRN to NAm webcast.

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support: thanks this week to Moises Corilloclla, Rego Park NY, for a check in US funds on a US bank, to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; and says, “Please be assured that I appreciate your job, as you are one of *the* reliable sources of DX news. I look forward to enjoying more editions of World of Radio in the next years to come!“

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

** U S A [and non]. Huge sporadic E opening monitored from 2044 UT July 11 after seeing DXMAP MUFs above 100 MHz including one patch around New Orleans which should be just right for DX from Florida at twice the distance.

It`s notable that during this entire opening I never got anything below 91.9 even tho the MUF went up to 105? I kept bandscanning across the NCE band, but no DX even on the semi-open channels 88.1, 89.5, 89.9, 90.7. Almost as if this sporadic E were above a “lowest usable frequency“. States and provinces: FL, Veracruz, ID, OR, WA, MT, AB, VA.

These are in time order, ALWAYS UT, and I have spent a lot more time researching afterwards than ~3 hours tuning, all on the caradio in hot garage, vertical antenna so no manipulation there and no extra gain. And all on my own receiver in real time, no recordings made. Also had DX-398 as standby at least for some RDS readouts, but never got any.

After each log I copy the WTFDA FM Database listing; eliminating duplications of H&V kW power and H&V antenna height above average terrain unless in rare cases they differ. Headers at the FMDB are as follows; in many cases some fields are blank or duplicative:

Callsign Relay of Frequency City S/P Country Mode Lang Format Slogan ERP-H ERP-V HAAT-H HAAT-V Lat-N Long-W PI Code PS Info Radiotext PTY Remarks

Many of these lack a definite ID, but I make best guesses based on PTA, format, what is said, choosing full power stations rather than LP or translators. Since I am not counting stations, states or anything, nor QSLing, these presumptions are not a problem, but my best effort at identifying what has come in. Some OKies/Kansies included as I run across them hoping for Es DX instead.

I go to all this trouble, out of quality interest in the details; as I find those who go for quantity, with minimum one-liner details to be virtually unreadable, unless searching for some clue later. Also of course, this is how I want my log archive to read. Distances are approx., city-to-city, not site-to-site.

94.3 at 2043 and for many hours afterwards, once again as on previous Sundays, my nearby Enid local KLGB-LP is open carrier/dead air, so makes it a little easier to pull stations on 94.1 & 94.5. Its RDS still displays KLGB even when tuned down to 94.05. Someones at the other ends could have DXed it that way. But why don`t they just turn it off?

97.3 at 2044, S Florida ad for Diamonds Direct in Boca Ratón, come see at the mall. I`ve tuned up the band and this is the first DX signal noted. After adstring, “Back to the music on The New Hits, 97.3“. But these stations never say “back to the commercials“!

So now DX in at same time from both ID and FL! Between 2131 and 2225. Which means double hop DX possible at both ends; did anyone get any? We`re out of luck here in the great center of North America.

95.5 at 2308, YL says “Today`s Country 95-5“, timecheck as “just after 5:00“ so must be MDT or CST: There are NO “today`s country“ anywhere; not even any country in ID or MT but Alberta has two: CHLB-FM 95.5 LETHBRIDGE AB CAN COUNTRY COUNTRY 95.5 100.0 kW H&V but 173.0 m HAAT horizontal, 0.0 m vertical; huhhh? 49-46-47 112-52-18 1907 km = 1185 mi CHLB in southern AB more likely than CKGY midway Calgary/Edmonton: CKGY-FM 95.5 RED DEER AB CAN COUNTRY REAL COUNTRY 95.5 100.0 kW 256.5 m 52-19-10 113-40-41 [2163 km – 1344 mi]

100.3 at 2313, lo-fi NWS severe storm warning for north central Montana overrides; 3 tones and back to music; 2319 praise music. It`s KLSK Great Falls again as above

99.3 at 2319 song in some Portuguese dialect? 2324 // 97.3 so still CKUAs; with one radio I can`t tell if synchronised. Outro as from Cape Verde on `World Spinning` show with Mark? Clark but sounds like a YL; no, she`s Lark Clark per CKUA program sked; CKUA ID in passing
