Glenn Hauser logs May 15-16, 2022

** CANADA. 248 MCW kHz, May 16 at 0451 UT, dash and WG, powerful ND beacon at Winnipeg, glad to find it copiable despite HSNL, if no other Canadians and hardly any Americans beyond 341 EI Enid (Glenn Hauer, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 9790, May 16 at 0458, CRI Cantonese via CUBA is S9+40 atop CCI in French which is RFI from 0400. At 0506 check, RFI S9:15 in the clear on this 04-07 UT broadcast, huge collision during first hour. RHC not in HFCC so how could RFI possibly know of a problem? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, May 16 at 0513, RHC with S9+35 of dead air in English, or maybe JBM; 6060 & 6100 are off already; 6165 is on S9+40/45 and modulating; 5040 in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 13650, May 16 at 2037, RRI first English of the day for N America is huge S9+50 into UTwente, but absent from // 11850, the ailing transmitter. 2045 `History Show` about a great poet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 9996 kHz, May 16 at 0456, binary code, no doubt RWM Taldom/Moskva. BTW, American media kept mispronouncing Móskva as the name of that downed naval vessel. They must never have heard any SW utterance of “Govorit Moskvá“ with the stress obviously on the -a (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7730, May 16 at 0500, UR1 via WRMI resuming `Ukraine: Security Issue` war summary in English; S9/S7 direct with storm crashes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. 15709.079, May 16 at 1447, JBA carrier. Scheduled is AWR Chinese via Trincomallee on “15710“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 15 from 2000.7 UT on IRRS SW via AM Italia, Villa Estense, 1323 kHz, S9 and noisy into nearby Noale KiwiSDR; and not on 918 or 207.

Also confirmed Sunday May 15 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+10 into Knoxville SDR. This airing perpetuates despite axed from websked.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 16 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9 and noisy into undirect Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 16 at 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-. Dead air at first, then an F-explative in the voice of Allan Weiner, as A51 sometimes inserts such amusements; WOR itself sounded slightly overmodulated/distorted. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba] 2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 [NEW] 1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
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

** U S A. (7489.9v), Sunday May 15 from 2200, WBCQ webcast of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`, music from Ireland for St Patrix Day as originally broadcast in 2017y, rerun of the third episode when they were only a semihour. That should rereplay Monday at 2300. Sunday 2230 restart another episode of variety starting with Serbia, 2250 greeting Michigan ARE where they like hot women and cold beer, as Ep #4. Reruns still as UB is Covidailing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, UT Monday May 16 after 0200, WBCQ Radio Angela with another opera on `Concert Hall`, but unlistenable via Maryland SDR with uteblaaps every few seconds. Was last chance for 4790, as 5130 to replace it from UT May 17. If the blaaps follow it there, that will be really suspicious (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, UT Monday May 16 at 0200 I do catch this week`s `Encore` of classical music via WRMI; almost sufficient into Knoxville SDR but a bit of Cuban jamming splat from 5955, whence Radio República has been kaput for a decade, unless BW narrowed, rather not for music, or LSBed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Monday May 16 at 1930 after R. Prague, WRMI with `Flashpoint Ukraine` from VOA webcast, soon specified as Friday May 13! Skipping the news first since it would have been 48 hours olds. Recall that FPU was missing Wed & Thu May 11 & 12, but I missed checking May 13: no problem: we`ve got it now! But, what about the Monday May 16 edition? Ended at 1954, then jive VOA ID, dead air; 1956 thumb piano music? WRMI ID and more music fill until Mistruths to Mistrust (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9940, May 16 at 2208, WTWW again/still absent as “Voice of
Freedom“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 16 circa 1730 & 1800 UT on caradio, and circa 2200 fixed, KLEY Wellington KS still providing air that is dead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (91.5), Sunday May 15 from 2301 UT, KTXK Texarkana (about as far from Lubbock as possible in TX as I misplaced it last time, confused with KTXT), webcast of `Weekend Radio` originated with WCLV, on my last chance to hear this week`s episode on one of the fewer affiliates remaining. After a ToH commercial, another break at 2311 pushing buying a “spot for $3 to support public radio“. Surely this is crossing the line into commercialism, and there were some brief spots later which sounded just like ads, not “underwriting“. Yet to boot, show ended early at 2350 so some content must have been cut. HQ does provide a cue sheet confirming it was this week`s episode, but post facto could not figure what came out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
