Glenn Hauser logs May 12-13, 2022

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. Re ZF2RX: “Hi, I saw your comment about my QRZ page, and the fact that it was empty. I will fill it in soon. I only got the call for the ARRL DX SSB contest, and haven’t had time to do a page. I am operating from the station of ZF9CW, located on Cayman Brac. If you have any other questions, please let me know. I am more than happy to answer anything you’d like to know. Bray KC1KUG/ZF2RX, Sent from my iPhone“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Thu May 12 at 0624, no signal from RNZP where it normally inbooms, checked after first finding a big S7/9+10 open carrier on 13840, which is an earlier NZ channel. Maybe disrupted for maintenance day. By 0705 recheck, 11725 is on and 13840 is off. I was about to doze and checking my scribbles later, I wrote 13740 at 0624 but took it as NZ. If it were really 13740, might have been another Cuban anomaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 21, May 12 at 1453 UT, tropo check of DTV finds lots of BAD signals into STB, but here is decoding 40-3 MeTV-RR in the PSIP. Not sure of last two letters in font, could be AA or some combo of squared-off letters. Lacking listings any more, I have to go to network roster for MeTV, and scroll down hovering over each market until finally hit a match at #94 Fort Smith AR KHBS. Yes, that fits nicely with the tropo area, and is not too far away. Guess what: it`s in Oklahoma, as the FCC coverage map shows the circle centred considerably SW of FS near Poteau, OK, altho the exact location is not pinpointed; however its longitude is 94:40+ west, while the city of FS, right on the border, is only 94:24. I would not be surprised if there be several more Ft Smith `AR`, AM, FM, TV stations really in OK. We already know that 1650 AM is in OK. Anyone DXing anystation licensed to a stateline city better research true location. Only other decodee is RF 20 from Tulsa, as commonly.

RF 9 does not develop but not often anything even BAD to be seen. FCC TV Query show not a single 9 of any type or power in OK – ex-KWTV-land, and none in KS either, altho several in TX including full powers. But in today`s PTA along with KHBS surely it is KAFT, “13“ virtual, Fayetteville AR, of Ark Educ TV (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

First airings confirmed UT Friday May 13 at 0130 on WRMIs: 7730 S9/+20 into Maryland SDR; 5850 S9+20/30 into Missouri but both storm noisy. At 0153 direct: 5850 S9+20/30 not noisy; 7730 S9+10 noisy and seems undermodulated. Before 0159, 5850 at least overrides my last few words, even tho, “with a standard disclaimer; I say again, standard disclaimer“ was not enough for the first one to stand: maybe I need to say it thrice (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, May 12 at 0631, this WRMI is S9+20/30 and distorted, also throwing spurspikes widely to the lower side, audible to 9355 vs 9330 WBCQ, and *still* audible as low as 9185, matching the spikes to mod on 9455 with a second radio. Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, May 12 at 1930, WRMI with NO VOA news; after a pause, fill music starts, and no `Flashpoint Ukraine` either at 1935. Alan Roe reported the same problem yesterday, so I ask Jeff White. He says there was a problem on VOA’s side with audio streams and they are trying to fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2138)
