Glenn Hauser logs May 27, 2022

** AUSTRIA. 9670, May 27 at *1600, via UTwente, faux timesignal, brief announcement in Russian, then John with VORW in English, a special broadcast via Channel 292 but not its own German site, rather 100 kW from Moosbrunn eastward. Usual musings about what`s going on in his life, and to take music requests, so is it live? Finally some music from 1610. Cut off abruptly at 1659.5* but similar signal back on at *1700 which in the low-res `292 sked is `Bobs 60s Splash`, oldies and later DJ speaking. From 292 it`s totally unclear which site(s) be in use at which hours. I knew about VORW coming, only indirectly from SWLing Post via AER in Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6000, May 27 at 0615, these RHC English frequencies are OFF; you never know what combination will last the final hour. Now leaving only 6060, but unusable below horrible self-inflicted humbuzz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. May 27 at 0625+, I survey all the Cuban jamming frequencies running now despite having no targets whatsoever. Mainly would be Radio Martí, but that`s totally off SW overnight. The pulsing sounds vary from one to another in pitch, rate and intensity. 11930, 11860, 11775, 9955, 9805, 9565, 7405, 7365, 7355, 7335, 6030, 5980, 5955. Details: 11775 never an RM frequency: now would be jamming Dengê Welat! 9955 below WRMI with TOMBS not even in Spanish and certainly not exile programming. Heaviest wall-of-noise on 7335, 6030. 5980 vs leapfrog mixing product of WWCR 5890 over 5935. 5955 over a decade ago had Radio República, 5954 via Costa Rica: once jammed, always jammed! The totally incompetent and extremely wasteful DentroCuban Jamming Command. Think of all the nutritious meals which could have been provided to undernourished Cubans for the wasted cost of all that juice. Not that jamming is ever justified even when correctly timed and targeted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680 // 13740, May 27 at 2127, RHC Spanish on both; 13680 is stronger S9 vs 13740 fading to S1-S4, but louder modulation on the weaker one. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The latest May 24 update of EiBi now shows 13680 but only at 1930-2100 for Europe; not at all in Aoki as of same date (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11950, Friday May 27 at 2303 tune-in, a few SPY NUMBERS before cut to RHC programming, voice-over Spanish translation of a speech in English, a live Caribbean event? Toward end of speech, St Kitts & Nevis mention so maybe its delegate/ambassador. Hearing next from a Nicaraguan. This is not // mainstream RHC Spanish on 11760, 11670, 9710, 9535; while VP undermod 6000 may be //. This would be the `Mesa Redonda` TV audio which is supposedly scheduled Mon-Thu only. No 13680 or 13740 on air now and only 19m, 15730 is in Kriyol. 11880 is also not on air in English, nor 11850 Spanish and parasites. To boot on very strong 11950, there is crossmodulation from some music underneath. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15750, May 27 at 2125, routine bandscan encounters the unmistakable tones of Josiah on Station YHWH, S1-S4. Previous daytime 19m frequencies were 15785, 15100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, UT Friday May 27 at 0500-0506, UR1 via WRMI with `Ukraine: Security Issue`, YL narrating Day 92 of war May 26, VG as usual into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2140 monitoring: confirmed UT Friday May 27 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 direct but only poor in noise level. Same S reading into Maryland SDR but good.

Also confirmed Friday May 27 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 direct and no jamming audible.

Also confirmed Friday May 27 at 1815.4 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria, heard via NW Ireland SDR using LSB to avoid the USB ute warble; and AM Italia where both 1323 and 918 kHz are on air but not 207, as heard via nearby Noale SDR; slightly better on 918 S5-S7 than 1323 S4-S6. Thus resuming after last week`s 3rd-Friday pre-emptions.

I tuned in earlier: at 1759, 7290 JBA in Chinese, 1800 timesig and CNR theme; *1800.9 Kostinbrod cuts on, JIP Feature Story News as always in progress, UN News; 1809 starting some DJ music show but only a fragment until 1815 IRRS ID still plugging the Milano PO box which is otherwise disallowed, and into WOR.

Jean-Michel Aubier, France also reports: “World of Radio heard this Friday at 1815 on 7290 1323 and 918 and also at 2030 on 1323 and 918 Nothing on 207 (via a web-receiver in northern Italy)“

I also confirm Fri May 27 at 2030.7 oo AM Italia 918 & 1323, not 207, same reception as before. At 2029 tune-in a DJ was just welcoming us to his country music show, and got only 3 notes played before chopped off at 2030 for ID and then WOR. Next:

** U S A. 9455, May 27 at 2121, WRMI-5 is back on air after several days` silence due to a feedline problem, with TOMBS. Fortunately 22 hours a day on this are disposable, mostly TOMBS or SMTV. Variety hours are 00-01 and 09-10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 21525, May 27 at 2123, the WRMI-7 Radio Africa transmitter is still on instead of 2100*, seems dead air at S3/S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9472 USB, May 27 at 0623, very weak 2-way sounds English at first, then maybe Tagalog (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11695, May 27 at 1451, S9+10, emphatic M&W dialog in Chinese. Smax of CNR1 but nothing at all listed at this hour after VOA Khmer via Philippines until 1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15610, May 27 at 1447, JBA carrier. Once upon a time, this would have been owned by WEWNglish, but now all but one of its transmitters are broken and Spanish is higher priority. Now Aoki shows it could be VOA in Kur language via Botswana until 1500; or CNR1 jamming and Sound of Hope until 1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0042 UT May 28
