Glenn Hauser logs August +10-11, 2021

** ANDORRA [non]. As previously reported, I heard the R. Andorra special via AUSTRIA 6180 via a remote receiver. I did not send them a reception report nor request a QSL. However, it was announced that the “QSLs“ would be generic, not personalized to name the recipient, so I am no less generic in claiming this as it might as well be mine, one of several reproduxions of it on the web: https://aer.org.es/archivos/30542 In fact it does not say it`s a QSL or verifying anything, more like a publicity poster. BTW, I am not put off by kelka shows in French: it is probably my fourth-best language (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Aug 10 at 1510, no signal into Brasil SDR from LRA36 this Tuesday; we`ll see if it`s back Wednesday, which had been its #1 DOW, until last week it kept showing up on Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun; but not Mon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Aug 11 at 0126, no signal from R. Progreso, nominally *0030-0400*. Gone too are its scratchyspurs 17-18 kHz above and below. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Aug 10 at 1854, RHC in Kriyol // 15140, but 15370 is not supposed to be on yet, rather from *1930 in French starting Euro service. So I keep on it for English to get duplicated too, but 15370 goes off at 1900* just as English start on 15140. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9535 & 9710, Aug 11 at 0132, both RHC Spanish 31 mb frequencies are missing; 11850 is S9/+10 but as so often is JBM and suptorted; JBA parasitic spur carrier also on 11840. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Not missing are 13740 & 11670 in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Aug 11 at 0134, RHC in English! instead of Spanish, undermodulated and with humbuzz much like that infesting 6060 after 0500. // 6000 is much louder and 6165 less so. Feedlines mixed up? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9580, Aug 11 at 0133, CRI English relay is S9+30/40, undermodulated and slightly distorted. But sufficient with volume turned up, American accent about American events; could it really be CHINA?? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba; while RHC itself is missing from 9535 & 9710 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Aug 10 at 1508, Kashmir Civitas weekly clandestine reconfirmed this Tuesday, via IRRS presumably Romania, usual Urdu talk and music, VG S9/+10 into UTwente. But at 1523 already, sudden cut to classic song in English “This Magic Moment“, and more rock to 1529* with no announcements. Unknown whether KashCiv show were short this week or something went wrong to chop it, defaulting to fill music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 10 circa 2210, VOT is missing again from North American English. Not even a signal at UTwente. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), Aug 9 at 2329, after listening to the secret repeat of the first half of `UBMP` on WBCQ webcast, Monday at 2300, a spot commercial for Progressive Insurance, immediately followed by the regular 2330 show `Camp Constitution Radio`. It`s hard to believe that a major advertiser such as P.I. would intentionally be sponsoring such an obscure political SW show. What is going on? Have they bought some spots on WBCQ and one happens to be inserted here [as I noticed once before: maybe every week]? Spot advertising on US SW stations is exceeding rare, not to be confused with commercials within a totally-sponsored syndicated show; tho some appear amid otherwise unrelated musical filler on WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Aug 11 at 0131, tonight`s missing WRMI frequency, while neighbor 9395 achieves S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7506-7508, Aug 10 at 2230, multiple random tones, or rather carriers on slightly different frequencies, at UTwente audible in SSB or SynchAM modes, but not plain AM. Will not lock on to one specific carrier frequency. Not CW, i.e. Morse with a message. Seems unrelated to weak signal on 7505, which is RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan this hour only; and/or ChiCom jamming. The tones could be a different kind of jamming, but they continue past 2300 when 7505 has gone off. In fact, beepery still at 2345. Not a UTwente artifact, as same thing heard on nearby Nordhorn, Germany SDR at 2349.

Normally I employ remote SDRs just to check something out on a specific frequency, rather than full bandscanning which I do myself to discover new things: but the noise level here is so bad and the propagation currently so poor that I was bandscanning 7300+ up at UTwente, with probably more to come (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
