** CHILE. 18155-USB, Oct 26 at 1455, CE1CR calling CQDX 17 and working US stations; tho fonetik, heavy accent made copy uncertain, but probably this per QRZ.com
CE1CR Chile flag Chile
CONTEST CALLSIGN (Operator CE1WBY)
P.O.BOX 606 – IQUIQUE CITY
Chile (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. Oct 26 at 2301-2310, many signals correlating with China, mostly JBA in Chinese, or JBA carriers; WOOB ones most likely jammers against Sound of Hope:
9830 at 2301, checking whether VOT bonuses an extra German hour after English, JBA carrier if LSB-tuned to avoid RTTY on USB. But CNR1 Beijing 572 site is scheduled here 2025-0100. Checking Aoki/NDXC.
17820, 17595, JBA maybe Chinese at a time 16m otherwise dead. 17595 is CNR1 but nothing listed at 2302 on 17820.
Tuning only WOOB areas between 16300 and 12500, Skipping a number of suspicious 19 and 22 mb inband signals, to: 15100 S3-S5; 14920, 16100; 13920 Chinese S3, 13530 Chinese S3-4, 13160 JBA, 13130, 13020, 12880, 12500 JBA carriers.
12819.85 approx., Oct 26 at 2312, one offset JBA carrier smax of Sound of Hope itself without jamming, yet unlikely with the known high-power jammers so weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15730, Oct 26 at 2303, RHC Kriyol S9 but extremely distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** JAPAN [non]. 9705, re my Furusato no Kaze log, Ron Howard replies: “Glenn – Per Hiroshi, it would seem you heard “Doremi No Uta” (DO – RE – MI). Tree of the Forest Children’s Choir – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNR8-ONY1mA . Ron, California“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Oct 26 tune-in at 1516 to Kashmir Civitas, via IRRS via ROMANIA, S9+25/30 into UTwente in impassioned Urdu speech with some English terms, “occupying forces“, “super-charged“, with crowd response, also partly understrumming; 1524 cut to studio talk with strum; 1529* cut off during talk, no IS. Tuesday-only broadcast.
HFCC shows from next week in B-21, shifts one UT hour later to 1600 Tuesdays only on 15170, 300 kW, 79 degrees from “Milano“. As Europe will go off DST, but that should be irrelevant in target. I hope the Kashmiri be prepared for the change (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SUDAN. 7206.002, Oct 26 at 0452, Arabish talk, S8-S9 somewhat undermodulated, 0455 HOA music past 0500+, into UTwente. Sudan Radio, the only active SW frequency from here, now under control of the military coup. Checked direct at 0621, JBA carrier.
Nominal 7205 of course, but Manuel Mendez had it a sesquiyear ago on 7206: May 17 at 0505*-*0525. And hardly an accidental variation, maybe to placate IARU ham intruder complaints, hi. They had blasted France for broadcasting on 7205, sideband below 7200.000.
Sudan had an external service, same transmitter? at 1630-1900 with English at 1715, on 9505, but believed inactive for some time.
[non] Might also be of interest to monitor target broadcaster Radio Dabanga, A-21 scheduled: 0429-0457 7315 Vatican, 11650 Madagascar; 1529-1627 11640 Bulgaria, 15550 Vatican (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 414-MCW kHz, Oct 26 at 0618 UT, one unusual ND beacon is ATS, which is 25 watts from ArTeSia NM; I was tuned to 412-USB. Mixed with another weaker unID. Last logged Nov 24 and Oct 6, 2020 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN. 5829.90, Oct 26 at 1632, JBA signal into Kuwait SDR, checking out a yesterday report of something on “5829“. Typical Tashkent off-frequency but just reported by Alan Holder:
“Confirmed October 26, 1600 UT. 5830 carrying the same audio as Iran International TV live streaming, although radio is about 2 seconds behind. Heard with excellent reception on the Kuwait KiwiSDR. Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.“
We were checking out a previous report from Brasil at 0250 of something on “5829“. After that I could only hear WTWW 5830. Wolfgang Bueschel also reported:
“UZBEKISTAN, 5829.938 kHz exact measured at 1700 UT, likely via transmitting stn of RRTM Telecom Tashkent Uzbekistan bcast center, Iran International TV news program in Persian, read by female presenter, S=9+5dB backlobe into southern Germany Perseus SDR unit“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
