Glenn Hauser logs June 14-15, 2022

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Wednesday June 15 from 1435, no signal yet from LRA36, via Buenos Aires remote; but comes on about *1445 with music, S2/S3. 1448 ID; 1500 fade down; 1501 canned sign-on and 1502 Antártida themesong. I have an appointment so must tune out by 1510; anyone track how long it stayed this time? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA [non]. Checking the June 14 2130-2145 test for BBCWS midwinter special exactly one week later on June 21, Tuesday, not Monday as I erred on WORLD OF RADIO. Can get no closer to Antarctica than Buenos Aires SDR which I check first: 7305 Ascension ought to be best, S9/+10; 9505 Woofferton S9/+10 with a bit of ACI; 12065 Woofferton S9/+15 so marginally best; 6035 UAE poor as expected, S8/9+5. Don`t know why they even try DHA unless happens to have an antenna there coincidentally aimed at a Britbase. It seems there are five British facilities in Antarctica proper, only one open all year, Rothera: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Antarctic_Survey#Research_stations At 2037 I try direct where we are of course far from the target: 12065 poor S8/S9, the others inaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9669.509V, June 15 at 0640, gospel harmony at S7/S9 from RVM, wayer off-frequency, yes, double-checked, almost 9670 instead of 9665+, 9666+ or merely 9667+; and now a menace to Channel 292, Germany, 9670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, June 15 at 0030, checking for R. Progreso, but nothing except CODAR swirshes into Maryland SDR. Nominal sked is 0030-0400 only and has been reported missing lately, but I have not checked every night. I switch to Bonaire SDR, and at 0051 can hear some nondescript music under the CODAR, but cuts off at 0101* so is that Tajikistan instead? I keep monitoring when *0119 it comes back on with music, and by 0125 I can barely tell it`s in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11845, June 15 at 0632, weak pulse jamming on a long-abandoned Radio Martí frequency and when was in use, daytime only. The incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420.002, Tuesday June 14 at 1602, VOG is back on as expected after a holiday weekend, missing not only Sat & Sun as usual, but also Monday. It was Christos Rigas who pointed this out at first, rather than Zacharias Liangas, as I misremembered last time. This hour at S9+25/30 into UTwente plays some music, but far too much talk conversation in Greek. They keep going thru hourtop 1700, but ERT IS & ID play until 1703* and off uncovering China which was considerably QRMing underneath with its own Western classical music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. Re last report about 9700 replacing 11725: it was Ricky Leong, not Rodney Johnson who was told by Adrian Sainsbury about it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, June 14 at 0500, UR1 via WRMI, yet another repeat, the fourth, of the June 11 edition for Day 107 of the War, June 10. And yet again June 15 at 0500 via usual Maryland remote. Richard Langley notes that UR1 has been inaccessible on the web lately, which may explain it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2142 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday June 14 at 2238 the 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 direct and no jamming audible nor at 2259.

Also confirmed Tue June 14 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9+10 into Maryland SDR.

Was set up to record a sample, a bit before 2130 Wed June 15 on 7489.9v WBCQ, but remote had timed out. As usual in summer, nothing but a JBA carrier direct. Did anyone hear it? BTW, I hardly ever get an answer to that question. Next:

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much appreciated, thanks this week to generous Doug Brown, London ON, who sent a Florida US$ check to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA, and comments: “Thanks, Glenn, for continuing to promote the medium of short wave radio at a time when many are saying the Internet had made SW obsolete. Online streaming is no more like radio than intravenous feeding is like fine dining. Authoritarian governments can control the Internet but they can`t control RF propagation“

Next new WOR 2143 should be ready early UT Friday June 17 for first broadcasts at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, June 15 at 1935, WRMI playing fill music instead of VOA `Flashpoint Ukraine`; however it was underway at 1946 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 15 at 0624, RV is on tonight, 3 x 3945 with music, S6/S9. Also 7890 = 2 x 3945 JBA carrier at 0644. Not making it on 15780 or 19725. BTW at these late hours my logs are likely to be direct, not via remotes, specified if so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12116 USB, June 15 at 0631, 2-way in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15743-15748 approx., June 15 at 0628 weak noise sounds like DRM, smax of half of WINB but certainly not at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2351 UT June 15
