Glenn Hauser logs February 13-14-15, 2022

** CUBA. 9700, Feb 14 at 0712, S9/+10 of dead air, trace? of modulation, the only RHC frequency still emanating. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Feb 14 at 2228, RHC still on here, S9+5 in Spanish, instead of scheduled 2130* after French // much weaker 15370. Checking all bands next few minutes, no other RHC frequencies active on 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 6 MHz; except 11880 English, S8-S4 and suptorted. At 2240 a Cuban seeks pen-pals, with his postal address, then “amigos de la onda corta, Nuestra América, revista informativa“. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT [and non]. 9899.60, Feb 14 at 2218 direct, R. Cairo S9/S7 but JBM and suptorted in music. Continues as total failure. At 2237 there is a weak het from something on 9900.0, i.e. the TAIWAN/CHINA radio war from 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15215, Feb 14 at 2226, vocal SE Asian music, S5/S2, best if not only signal from west on mostly vacant band; it`s KSDA amid Vietnamese hour, beamed even further west from Agat. One can only wonder how 7DA meshes or conflicts with Vietnamese culture, as well as ts countless other targets (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** LUXEMBOURG. 234 kHz, Feb 13 at 2326, RTL VG into UTwente, during special about history of pirate radio. At tune-in a put-off, English and French narration mixing at same level! One must be voice-over of the other, which should be avoided except possibly when there be stereo separation. About R. Caroline, clip of “199“ ID = metres; 2329 French only, about R. Atlanta. Too much else going on at this hour to keep listening, e.g. UBMP, not to mention WOR. BTW, in my LW bandscans for beacons I never hear a trace of this 375/750 kW signal nor any other European LWBC.

Richard Langley, NB, tells the WOR iog: “Interesting show. Although the commentary is in French, there was lots of English in the sound clips and jingles from the different English stations. And the pop songs of course. And those with a smattering of French can follow the drift. I recorded the show using the U. Twente SDR receiver with good quality. But the podcast is even better: https://www.rtl.fr/programmes/les-nocturnes/7900124623-saga-des-radios-pirates-world-radio-day-dimanche-13-fevrier-2022 Worth a listen. — Richard Langley“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Feb 13 at 2308, novelty song about bride
of Frankenstein, I guess for Valentines Day, S9+15; 2310 another song;
2312 segué to Mideast tune but English lyrix about rock `n` roll;
2315.5 Outhouse Radio ID, SSTV. Many more logs here with lots of noisy
fuzzy SSTV images:

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11650+, Feb 14 at 0334, S7-S9 of Hornish-of-Africish music, 0335 announcement, more music, mostly talk past 0348. Outstanding signal at first seems the OSOB = only signal on band, until I find also a JBA carrier on 11875, so instead it`s the SSOB = strongest signal on band. At 0352 I switch to Knoxville SDR which is getting 11650 better, S7-S9 reading also, during dialog talk and carrier offset displayed as +53.6 Hz, varying to +52.3 Hz. It`s Radio Tamazuj, via MADAGASCAR, which also accounts for offfrequenciness. MUF barely to 12 MHz is funxional for this trans-equatorial signal; but the 11875 must be VOA Somali via UAE, close to trans-polar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690 reactivated after AWOL Friday, Monday Feb 14 at 2300, token REE English, VG via Maryland SDR; after news mainly interview about a Greek film; but at 2325 acknowledging World Radio Day yesterday with UNESCO statement about it, and last minute at 2329 a bit of a Spanish version of Elvis Costello`s “Radio, Radio“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, Feb 14 at 2259, BBC closes but nothing from VOT English to us during the entire hour as monitored via UTwente. Instead a weak carrier which bumps up to S9 at 2309, JIP PBS Xinjiang, Mandarin in progress from Urumqi, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler; so no contest whether to listen to this or SPAIN, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. Feb 14 tune in Emma Toc webcast at 1843 when live again, https://www.mixcloud.com/live/RadioEmmaToc/ Jim Salmon preparing to drink worldwide toasts to 2MT at 1900 — axually three toasts: to 2MT; radio hams who promoted; and to first DJ, Peter Pendleton Echersley(sp?) with a clip of him CQing — during which the stream to me stalls. Apparently a re-creation some ten years later. Chat keeps going including overhearing 2m? ham contacts past 1930. We continue to wonder and marvel how Emma and Toc ever emerged as fonetix for MT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 5945.095, Feb 14 at 0316, JBA S6/S8 carrier off-frequency in 5950 WRMI splash. Aoki shows this hour only it`s BBC Arabic via UAE site, another one which accomplishes inaccurate frequencies. See also SUDAN SOUTH [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2125 monitoring: Also confirmed Sun Feb 13 at 2100.8 on AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S9+8/12 via nearby Noale SDR; preceded by someshow about Montenegro`s entry into the Eurovision Song Contest, 2100 IRRS SW ID. Initially lots of noise but cleared up by WOR time; power output surges at station? Also checked at UTwente tuning MW rather than SW: at 2120, 1323 kHz is good and clear into other side of Europe, S6-S7 over slight CCI.

Also confirmed Sun Feb 13 at 2341 the 2330 on WRMI 5950, S9+35/20 into Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 14 at 0030 on WRMI 0030, S9+10/20 into Knoxville SDR, also VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 14 from 0402.7 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 29 Hz = 6159.971, S9 into Knoxville SDR; running a bit late: at 0356, multiple repeat IDs of “WDCD Radio“, and “Wanton Display of Control and Disruption“ — now we know. It so happens that FCC Queries find no such legal call on AM, FM or TV, way to go! That`s the same one previous weeks closing with a coughing fit. Next:

0130 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW [NEW] 2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?] 1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 5950, Feb 13 at 0000-0100, eQSL for TRSW Tribute to Dr. Tim, via WRMI: https://www.w4uvh.net/TRSW_DrTimTribute_eQSL_WRMI_Hauser.pdf or #132 via http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, Feb 13 at 2314, this WRMI-12 is back on after AWOL last two nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, Feb 14 at 0302-0310+, S9/+10 of dead air. Must be WRMI-14, supposed to close at 0300. MADAGASCAR used to appear off-frequency near 5010, possibly hetting RMI, but not lately; when on, scheduled from 0300 per WRTH tho I recall is was on an hour earlier, as indeed listed from 0200 by Aoki; never mind the imaginary Honduran (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), Sun Feb 13 at 2330, WBCQ webcast with `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`, music from Botswana at midpoint. DXing otherstuff until 2330, I will try to catch the first half on secret repeat, UT Tuesday 0000 — later: yes, I`m doing exactly that Feb 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085 & 5830, UT Mon Feb 14 at 0311, surprisingly no signals from WTWWs, nor on 9475, 9930 or 9940 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0028 UT February 15
