Glenn Hauser logs July 2-3, 2022

** ANDORRA [non]. 13730, July 2 at 2317, French talk and rock music, another R. Andorra revival, via AUSTRIA; tnx to tip from Jorge Freitas, Brasil on the WOR iog. Last we heard, this month was going to be only on 6180 earlier for Europe, as had not raised money for the N American repeat, and had no prior notice this would be on. Still going at 0007 July 3; or something else on 13730? VG into Maryland remote, S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5952.4, July 3 at 0103, Texas Radio SW on 5950 WRMI has a considerable het on the USB side, evitable by LSB tuning. Got to be the sporadically re-active Radio Pio Doce on its signature split frequency. Can`t copy anything tho by tuning 5952.4 on USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9673.2v, July 3 at 0646, no signal from RVM here, but a JBA carrier a smidgin below 9675, which could be RVM or China. I`m on the less sensitive interior longwire due to storms in my area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, July 3 at 0638, RHC English on supposedly Spanish-only frequency scheduled to end at 0500 per Aoki but EiBi shows an English hour at 0500-0600, which is certainly a sporadic error. Only // still on is 6165; while 5040 remains in Spanish. 11670 is S9/+10 but distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 3 at 1448, RHC playing an American Standard tune very familiar but racking my brain trying to remember the name; S9+10/20 but unfortunately very distorted, boding ill for Esperanto to follow Sunday at 1500 but not rechecked. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. Another sporadic E opening I start hearing with Spanish from the west, UT July 3 on caradio, standard provisos; reference WTFDA FM Database:

97.3 at 0129, Mexmx in $tereo. Nothing further but judging from PTA of others, most likely the only one in Sonora, but in the south, not close to Arizona, and none in BC, AZ, CA or NV: XHSOS-FM 97.3 EL SIFÓN SON MEX Spanish RANCHERA LA RANCHERA 25.0 kW ERP 76.96 m HAAT 31-17-19 109-40-28 — 1512 km = 940 mi

96.7 at 0130, ID for “Nogales, Sonora, XHN#S, 100,000 watts, La Mejor FM, un concepto de MPS“; 0137 Senado PSA, Soriana ad, “la Mejor en FM“, music: XHNGS-FM 96.7 HERÓICA NOGALES SON MEX Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA MEJOR 30.38 kW 19.2 m — 1330 km = 826 mi

93.5 at 0131, “XHPO, Super 93.5 FM“ ID with street address Juárez algo, zona Centro“. NO list in WTFDA db, but broad search on call, slogan and frequency leads to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, which is in the NW close to AZ, but wrong frequency. They must have moved! IIRC, top end of Mex FM band is being cleared for community radio stations: XHPPO-FM 106.1 {sic} PUERTO PEÑASCO SON MEX Spanish SPANISH HITS SÚPER 15.0 kW 62.12 m 31-18-20 113-32-11 However, twits show 93.5 already in 2019y but illustrated with 106.1 logo! Instagram and FB have it on 93.5 and FB with address: “Blvd. Freemont # 9. Col. Benito Juárez. CP, Puerto Peñasco, Mexico“ — 1551 km = 964 miles

96.5 at 0153, JBA Spanish tropical song. Not AZ, but probably same city as 93.5: XHITA-FM 96.5 PUERTO PEÑASCO SON MEX Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA BESTIA GRUPERA 40.56 kW 189.55 m 31-43-43 113-14-09

Several more from AZ, CA this opening yet to be researched (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 USB, July 3 at 0034, “Dream x 3“ song, classic rock, S3/S4 vs storm noise level hitting S8. Off by 0055 check but then there are 6950 and 6955. Zero logs of 6960 tonight at HF Underground, but 24 h earlier, Ballsmacker Radio was widely reported (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950 USB, July 3 at 0055, rough blues song, good signal; 0101 Wolverine Radio ID and SSTV, off by 0107 check. Multiple logs here including several takes of the same SSTV image at sign-off:,99150.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955 USB, July 3 at 0056, romantic/love song segués, much weaker S7 than 6950 Wolverine, past 0113, JBA by 0120. These say it`s Damn Skippy, with several copies of four different SSTV images:,99152.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.4 AM, July 2 at 0033, S9+25 of country music as local Enid CBer is again a pirate relaying 103.1 KOFM, as later confirmed by //. At times a big het from another carrier, to jam it? I wonder if the YL DJ realize she now be a worldwide SW broadcaster? Sporadic E in play on 10m beacon band and shortly also on 88+ MHz FM, so should be DXable by skip; but there are a lot more CBers on 27185, blotted out here.

27184.460, July 3 at 1445, there it is again, S9+20 local signal, this time measured exactly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. July 3 at 0037-0053 UT, not getting any sporadic E FM DX, I default to the ham 28 MHz CW beacon band, IDs from WJ5O roster:

28280 at 0037, dash and DE K5AB CENTRAL TEXAS; alternating with: DE K5AB EM01 BEACON. S6 and the SSOB compared to rest very weak and fading, requiring multiple passes to copy. I heard him last summer: 28.280 K5AB C GOLDTHWAITE, TEXAS # 50W, GP VERTICAL Power increase 5 May 16

28224.5 at 0042, long but slower WPM: K5GJR/B plus grid. Also relog: 28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL

28189 at 0044, DE VE4TEN/B x3, grid, fadeouts.

** U S A. 9940, July 3 at 0643, WTWW S9+10 at odd hour for this and // 5085, rock music and talking about it. Ricky Leong, Alberta, had just reported both to the WOR iog:

“During a break from the program “The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” WTWW presented a six-minute newscast at 0500 UTC, July 3, 2022, introduced as “the latest news from Ukraine.” The audio appears to have been generated by a text-to-speech program and the newscast was entirely “read” from a script, as no actualities (audio clips) were presented. The information contained in the newscast seemed consistent with war reports from major news organizations and wire services over the last two days. The sign-off indicated the report was prepared by a correspondent for the station in Ukraine, identified only by the first name Alexander — actual spelling unknown, obviously. This newscast was repeated some 90 minutes later. Ah yes, I should have mentioned: it was in English. I didn’t think to check how well 5085 and 9940 were propagating into eastern Europe at that time. I’d guess 5085 had no chance but 9940 might have been alright, if ionospheric conditions were co-operating. 73, Ricky Leong, Calgary, Alberta, Canada“

What a coincidence that 0500 is the time WRMI used to relay UR1 with `Ukraine: Security Issue` on 7730, but this is something different (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Another sporadic E FM DX opening July 3 at 0129-0210 from Arizona, SE California, yet to be compiled, except for Sonora, see MEXICO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1952 UT July 3
