Glenn Hauser logs July 14, 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, July 14 from tune-in 1516, another Wednesday, so LRA36 is to be heard via Pardinho, Brasil KiwiSDR, S4-S6 during music. Of course since it`s SSB, the S-range varies more depending on modulation level than on propagation. 1518 already “cierre del programa“ mentioning “lejano sur, Esperanza“, until next miércoles but this to be repeated el sábado. Antártida themesong until 1523 but does NOT go off, immediately starts another song, 1531 `sign-on`, 1534 themesong again. Local weather max is minus 11 C; contact info including whatsapp; songs. 1547 canned ID, 1558 weather again of -11C high. 1624 still going with songs. 1631 ID, also at 1637, 1639. 1649 “sign-off“ again with themesong; 1651 “seguimos con más…“ when I tune out, as FM DX from Canada is calling me to the caradio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. Large sporadic-E FM DX opening July 14 from 1702 until 1953 UT mostly from Saskatchewan and Alberta. It shall take a day or two for me to have time to research and report it thoroly, but this may be one of the most interesting:

95.3, July 14 at 1719 UT into caradio, horoscope, CCI with KOKC 1520 translator [not KOMA as I wrote before!], YL DJ, birthdays of celebrities, eh? [sic], hum on her mike; 1720 “Creek FM“, eldercare PSA with COVID advice, still hum. WTFDA has no such slogan for any Canadian, which this surely is, eh? also from PTA = probable target area, and not Michigan. Web search leads to it:

“95 Three CreekFM | Proudly Broadcasting from Okanese First Nation 95.3 CreekFM is your local community radio station located on the Okanese First Nation reserve, providing a wide range of programming to attract and entertain many different audiences from across South Eastern Saskatchewan.

95.3 Creek Fm
P.O. Box 940
Balcarres, SK, S0G 0C0“

I do not find that Res in my Rand McNally; must be very small? But Balcarres is NE of Regina on the way to Melville and Yorkton. So this is it as per WTFDA:

CHXL-FM 95.3 OKANESE INDIAN RESERVATION SK CAN COMMUNITY RADIO 50.0 kW Horizontal-only 71.2 m HAAT H-only 50-56-34 103-23-53 — yet I am getting it on my vertical-only car antenna! It is said that sporadic E fortunately tumbles the original polarization of signals. From Balcarres: 1665 km = 1034 statute miles.

I wonder if these Creeks be any relation to the Muscogee/Creek of Oklahoma? BTW, in OK you see a lot of Tribal license plates — once considered prestigious or at least funding tribes rather than the state in general, but since McGirt shakeup in federal/tribal, vs state jurisdixion of crimes against Indians, many of whom you would not recognize as such without their plates, news reports say criminals are now singling them out as targets less likely to lead to prompt prosecution (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 14 at 0629, RHC English is under humbuzz here; clear but undermodulated on 6100; off of 6165, 6000 and 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, July 14 at 1433, RHC is S9+10 but undermodulated `Sonido Cubano` music, wrong frequency instead of missing 15140, but also on 15230. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13635 & 13765 approx., July 14 at 1436, JBA spurblobs out of 13700-AM; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 92.3, July 14 at 1847 UT, during large sporadic E FM DX opening mostly from Saskatchewan and Alberta, some Spanish shows up here: weak but growing against CCI from Phoenix, phone? 169-5810, and ad in *pesos* so unAmerican; 1849 “nueva radio La Bestia 92.3“; 1859 still Mexmx with stereo pilot, 1900 Spanish spoken; 1903 “ya nos conoce“ [indeed I do], non ID, live DJ, then “92.3 FM, La Bestia“. Besides Yuma & Vegas on 93.1, most DX continues from Canada, and no more Mexicans as this is barely one per WTFDA DB:

XHMMF-FM 92.3 MEXICALI BC MEX Spanish SPANISH HITS BALADAS LA BESTIA GRUPERA 21.9 kW ERP 48.08 m HAAT 32-38-18 115-38-17 — 1637 km = 1017 statute miles. I do miss the ch 3 and 5 analog TV stations from Mexicali which used to frequent Enid at prime Es skip distance (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2094 monitoring: as usual zzz thru the Wed 1030 July 14 on WRMI 5850; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed Wed July 14 at 2100 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9 into Maine SDR; and about 21 seconds behind on WBCQ 7490 minus ~80v Hz at S9+10; but by 2116 WBCQ has faded way down to S5, skip already lengthening? While the other BCQs remain VG on 3265+ and 6160-; and 9330 remains zero. But 7490 is back up to S7/S9+5 at 2241 check during AAAWWW playback. Next and last WOR 2094:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

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

New WOR 2095 should be ready for download early UT Fri July 15 and 0130 first SW airings on WRMIs 5850 & to be resumed on 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215, July 14 at 0633, WWCR-1 is OFF! instead of BSing, while the other three, 4840, 5890 and 5935 are nominally on and strong. Also no carrier on 15825 at 1434 check while 13845, 9980 and 7490 are VG. Next check at 2242: 6115 is also AWOL. Problems with #1 transmitter: nominal sked is: 01-11 3215, 11-22 15825, 22-01 6115 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4975, July 14 at 0631, JBA carrier, for the third time, vs storm noise and 4980 WRMI splash. I have my doubts it`s the Europirate Radio Deltracks as reported over there, 350 watts from Netherlands, but I need to check for it earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7348-CW, July 14 at 0626 weak string of numbers, those 5-character codes, finally K; and then a short msg including QRU. Wonder if spy-like? UDXF iog has lots of 7348 logs as FEMA in ALE/USB but not plain old CW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2300 UT July 14
