Glenn Hauser logs April 12-13, 2022

** ANTARCTICA [non]. 15475.98 RCUSB, Apr 13 at 1428 and 1520 chex, NO LRA36 signal into Brasília #1 KiwiSDR. Misses another Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. I am not kidding when I point out better uses for the cost of juice for jamming: The Other Side, you will never hear from RHC:

Food — There’s no hunger in Cuba? The hunger map developed by the World Food Program to monitor food security globally states that there is not… Sergio Ángel, Bogotá 11 Abr 2022 – 16:38 CEST

Feeding a prisoner: a heavy burden for thousands of Cuban families Jorge Enrique Rodríguez, La Habana 12 Abr 2022 – 15:55 CEST Getting food and other essentials to a prisoner drains the finances of thousands of families in a dollarized economy like Cuba’s. The alternative, not doing so, entails condemning a loved one to depend on the paltry and generally inedible rations at the island’s prisons. (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See USA: WOR monitoring

** ETHIOPIA [non]. 15340, April 13 at *1729.5, carrier on vs CNR co-channel as heard from 1725 tune-in; 1730 starts talking in unID language, as monitored via UTwente; 1740 some Horn-of-Africa music and off at 1744* re-uncovering China. Meanwhile there was a lot of ACI from much stronger but dead Brother Scare from Bulgaria on 15335. I never heard any ID but this is it, from Tony Rogers in the British DX Club:

“Thanks to a recording sent to me by Wolfgang von Poellnitz in Austria, a target broadcast to Ethiopia has been identified as “Radio Axumite” on 15340 kHz at 1730-1745 UT. Further investigation by Wolfgang and myself indicates that this is produced by Axumite Media:

Their profile says “Axumite Media Ltd is an independent media organisation based in Nairobi-Kenya, with a radio and online presence and aspiring to be on satellite TV soon. Axumite is established by visionary journalists and media professionals who fled Ethiopia due to the ongoing genocidal war in the country, ethnic profiling, a total lack of media freedom, and communication blackout in Tigray, one of the regional states in Ethiopia. All of the journalists working at Axumite Media Ltd have horror personal stories and difficult times to remember; escaped arrest and persecution, and most of them were working in media institutions in Addis Ababa and Tigray.” [for lots more]“

So I still wonder how in the world they pronounce Axumite. Obviously this is pro-Tigray; site on 15340? Not in HFCC or EiBi, while Aoki shows a Tig cland just before this which was not to be heard:
15340 1700-1730 F Dimtse Wegahta (V. of Dawn) Tig Issoudun 1-7
15340 0000-1703 TWN * SOH relay RFA Chi Pingtung 1-7
However, EiBi indicates SOH could be 24h on 15340, but with ChiCom jamming stopping at 1700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVE ISLANDS [non]. 11620, April 13 at 1522, checking Voice of Martyrs Korea, still preaching in nothing but English: VP S9/S6 into Kuwait SDR#3, with heavy ChiCom 2ACI from both 11610 & 11630. Not any better elsewhere, like S4/S6 into Missouri; S7 into RSA. Perth is best, S9/+10 with carrier offset +2.4 to 3.0 via secret site. Preacher calls for listeners to refer to their Bible, as if they might have one! In MI where Christianity is banned?? God`ll get`em by inundation; or Allah`ll save them? Closing ID as Voice of Martyrs Maldives Radio. After a few seconds carrier break, *1530 Vatican SMG with `Laudetur Iesus Christus` tagline, stronger into Perth and carrier offset +0.8 to 1.6 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2133 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 12 at 2230 on WRMI 9955: sometimes over, sometimes under heavy Cuban jamming, adding up to S9+30. Let no one ever criticise me for hostility toward never-jammed RHC, since Cuba has no cause to jam my English DX broadcasts, even out of stupidity. There is hardly any exile programming on 9955, except for R. Libertad at 2300-2400 M-F but jamming expands to a much longer span. See CUBA above in this report for The Other Side to their lying propaganda. Next WORs:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW

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

Thanks this week for financial support from Russell Lay, Nags Head NC, for a contribution via PayPal in US$ but not necessarily, to woradio at

One may also contribute by MO or check on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9940, April 12 at 1505 no signal from WTWW like previous days, as Ted has forsaken Ukraine, depriving them of his preaching or rock music; rather, two Chinese signals, i.e. CNR1 jamming and RFA via KUWAIT, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) {Date correct, overlooked in previous report}

** VANUATU. 11835, April 13 at 0627, amazingly good S9/S7 signal as if it were a fundamental, but axually the reactivated 3rd harmonic of R. Vanuatu 3945. Tnx to tip from LOB in Brasil that at 0600 they had moved from 7260 to 3945 but he could only hear them on 7890 and 11835. 7890 is only a JBA carrier. But NZ 11725 inbooms at S9+20.

0627 Music at first sounds like ABBA. 0629 drumming/percussion, bookending Bislama talk until again at 0632, apparently drawing attention to a significant announcement. During that biminute, I do make out mentions of “National Radio“, and “Radio Vanuatu“ ID in passing, “Insight“. Also lots of “blongs“, which is Pidgin for genitive, or “of“. Gives telephone numbers in English, repeated: 7710128 or 26829, for information — about what? Then briefly YL ID in English, also mentions Tonga, Solomon Islands New Zealand.

This is the best I have ever heard it, direct. It`s past my bedtime, so I decide to start recording it at 0639. I don`t like to record my DX as it`s inconvenient; but mainly because I don`t have the time to deal with all that later. I happen to awaken at 1149 and stop the 5+ hour recording. Maybe eventually I will post some excerpts from the 83 MB mp3 file.

Aoki and HFCC show absolutely nothing on 11835 at any time now, nor in B-21 HFCC; while EiBi shows CNR2 from site-x at 0000-1300, except for the Wednesday-only 0600-0855 siesta break, i.e. just when I started listening. However, I can`t hear anything but Vanuatu during spot chex of my recording, even toward the end as RV is fading down a lot. JBA music about 1100 sounds like it could be an anthem, at sign-off. But open carrier stays on until finally goes off about 1122*. Ron Howard was also listening live and was still hearing RV past the news at 1000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1914 UT April 13
