Glenn Hauser logs December 4-5, 2021 [more!]

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat Dec 4 circa 1555, I find no signal of LRA36 into Brasil SDR, as expected to be in summer hiatus — BUT I must have just missed it. Others reported it signing off around this time today – so seek it again from 1400 Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARGENTINA. 10000, Dec 4 at 1611, via remote in Brasil, good S8, time tix every second but no IDs in voice or any other mode, and no time announcements either. But it`s LOL, tnx to tip from Horacio Nigro in Uruguay to the WOR iog. LOL, Buenos Aires, is temporarily on extended schedule due to the imminent total solar eclipse over Antarctica. Maybe for propagation research rather than timing. It had been limited to M-F 14-15 UT only, and the 2 kW equipment had just been refurbished for this. I cannot even be sure of any markers on the minute, except the background tone goes off leaving tix only at 1613, tone resuming at 1615, etc, maybe at tops of minute but hard to be sure via SDR. Not even trying to hear it direct vs WWV but no QRM to it down there. Will it be more regular or more than one hour a day henceforth? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, Sat Dec 4 at 1550, REE with insane enthusiasm about a silly ballgame, best here S9+10/20 off the back to ME, rather than so-called N America direct on 9690 only S7/S8 about the same as the other offbeams, 11940 to S America and 11670 to Africa (NOT 11685) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 383 MCW kHz, Dec 5 at 0708 UT, CNP, 25-watt ND beacon at Chappell, Nebraska; no sign of LB, Liberal KS which is really in OK per dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm

365 MCW kHz, Dec 5 at 0709 UT, AA, 100 watt NDB at Fargo / Harwood ND. I was tuned to 363-USB

359 MCW kHz, Dec 5 at 0710 UT, SDR, 25 watt NDB at Snyder, Texas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2115 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday December 5 at 0422 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO about 11 minutes into so started circa 0411. S9+10/15 but heavy multiple CW QRM: a 160m contest must be underway. Several different rapid CW hams of different pitches against 1860 are heard at once, impossible to notch out if one had a notch. These CW guys have no respect for AM! Yet we are still 100% readable if ignoring the beepery, while the CW should also be readable by ignoring the phone. Best we can do is run AM-narrow.

Also confirmed Sunday December 5 at 1353 the 1330 on WMRI Europe via Channel 292, Germany, 9670, S9+20/30 into UTwente SDR, VG signal and modulation, back to normal after outage last week. But some ACI from not as strong 9665 Chinese music unless tuning USB. That`s Xianyang 59 site in CRI Russian. Next:

Thanks this week to Doug Brown, London, Ontario for a generous US$ cheque on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 and comments, “Thanks for another year of great information and DX tips.“One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Sabbathday Dec 4 at 1553, WRMI with gospel music but not TOMBS; but by 1607 it is TOMBS // 9395. WRMI skedgrids contradict. WRMI-3 supposed to start TOMBS Saturdays only at 1530, but go off to internet only from 1600; or maybe not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3360, UT Sun Dec 5, continuing to monitor new WWRB frequency which started at 0200: ID at 0300 and another program; 0400 another ID as experimental, now up to S9+40 into MO SDR and into a screaming hard to understand female gospel huxter. Off circa 0500, but I missed it exactly. BTW WWRB is an “Internet Radio Station“ but still full of years-outdated SW frequency and program info: http://www.wwrb.org/ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. CBS Radio Network: on WCLV`s `Weekend Radio`, Sagebrush Bob is featuring Stan Freberg episodes and always remarx that “CBS Radio no longer exists.“ Not exactly; we keep hearing it on air: Dec 5 at 0659 UT, WCCO 830 is outroing a program from “CBS Audio Network“, `Eye on Travel with Peter Greenberg: https://www.audacy.com/wccoradio/shows/show-schedule then at 0703 on KOKC 1520, “CBS Radio News“. And then there`s CBS Sports Radio all over the dial. History of CBS Radio is rather convoluted; try this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CBS_Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re 1470, Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO, replies: “Glenn, A very likely source of SS:MEX programming on 1470 XERCN in Tijuana, a very frequent catch here in Colorado. 73“ — I thought about that but it`s not frequent here. I should have DF`ed it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
