Glenn Hauser logs May 29, 2022

** CUBA. 13605, May 29 at 0635, add another frequency to the pointless overjamming, as OCB of course only uses this in daytime. Sounds like mixture of at least two sites at different pulse rates (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000 & 6060 & 6100 & 6165, May 29 at 0702, all four RHCs are off, so Esperantists are out of luck for first weekly broadcast on Sundays at 0700, now imaginary. Something`s always wrong at RHC. However, I do hear its sad theme starting about 1501 on 11760 and presumably secret 15140 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Sunday May 29 at 0630, RNZP is S9+10/20, SSOB as usual, not in English but some voices in language, probably Maori, occasionally lapsing into English terms; 0632 mentions Liam Neeson. 0633 outro and into English music request show of leftover items, from last night? This is contrary to the schedules online:

RNZP says Sundays at noon-8 pm [= 0000-0800 UT], it`s relaying RNZ National, so we have to look that up, this date:

“6:06 PM. Māpuna with Julian Wilcox — Julian talks to Māori throughout Aotearoa, from sports legends, to business leaders, to artists and community advocates. (rpt)“ and next show not until: “6:50 PM“. And, “The Sunday Night Retro Show“ not until 0806 UT.

BTW, `Mediawatch` starting at 1015 UT, later than previously listed in our DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS guide. Yet the page of Mediawatch itself claims it be Sundays 10:12 pm, as well as 9:05 am [= 2105 UT Saturdays]. BTW2, in case you haven`t heard, funds have been allocated for RNZP to get a new SW transmitter, which should allow it to run two frequencies 24/7, one of them DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. LW/MW beacon check May 29 at 1449: 255 SW Stillwater is JBA; 341 EI Enid can`t confirm vs elevated noise level; 350 RG OKC, still off. 407 HRU Herington KS JBA. 515 PN Ponca City as usual strongest of all (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, May 29 at 1925, still no signal into UTwente from R. Svoboda secret relay, via Armenia? Awaiting word from the crowdfunders whether this be terminated officially. Not heard since May 24 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, May 29 at 1438, REE on early weekends, but only S8/S9 to N America and just barely modulated. 15520 to ME also seems JBM at S4/S5. 11940 for S America JBA carrier. K index = 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2140 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 29 ending right at 1400 on WMRI Europe, via Channel 292, GERMANY, 9670, S6/S8 into NW Ireland SDR, so started at 1331; 1400 quick ID “WMRI Europe“ and into Russian – or Ukrainian? Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW [to be canceled? still May 22] 0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

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 to NNW [NEW] 1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

** U S A. Hepburn tropo map shows level-5 enhancement reaching SE OK, not to here, but I bandscan anyway, finding numerous BAD signals on open channels, May 29 after 1500 UT: 8, 12, 14, 20, 21, 28, 30, 34, 35, 36. And only one is decoding way above the other signals: RF 26 with PSIP ID as KTAL-DT. That`s Texarkana ARKLATEX, site in NW corner of LA, 6-1 with NBC pre-Indy show. The rest: 6-2 Laff, 6-3 Cozi, 6-4 HSN, all of which match: insists on measuring to N Carolina or S Pacific unless I spell out LOUISIANA after Vivian, town near transmitter site, i.e 529 km = 329 statute miles to the SE, close to my OKC-aimed antenna. TAL originally stood for one of the TALlest towers at that time, but could also mean Texas/Arkansas/Louisiana, never mind Okla.

My local translator on 17 has also become BAD due to DX QRM, likely the PBS in Shreveport, KLTS-TV “24“ (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 95.1, May 29 circa 1840 UT, dead carrier again into caradio for considerable distance in north side of Enid on way to cemetery; unseems a mobile RF feeder, nor the two FM stations vying for control of channel 236, in Wichita and Shawnee; once it weakens, their combat starts to appear (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1951 UT May 29
