Glenn Hauser logs July 10-11, 2022

** CHINA. 17615, July 11 at 0628, S6/S7 JBA Chinese music. Aoki & EiBi show CRI doubling up during the 06-07 hour: German via Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN, and Mandarin via Kunming. I`ve still hearing this and a number of other 16 mb signals from the dayside in the summer nightmiddle (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, July 11 at 0645, RHC English during mailbag, overmodulated & distorted on this erroneous frequency not on every night, S9+10, // 6165 only S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, UT Monday July 11 at 0647, RHC still on in Spanish with last few minutes of `En Contacto`, YL with prop info, i.e. solar flux and A-index predixions for each day thru August 12; source not clear but much like the SWPC info from yanqui imperialists that I copy and post. Brief explanation of OWF = optimum working frequency under some other name. Closing credits with no mention of Arnaldo Coro Antich, long version of theme with Morse code embedded until 0651, `En Cía. del Doctor`. Would have started circa 0635, presumably final repeat of several Sunday airings starting with 1335, which I have not monitored in a long time. 0635 Monday is *not* included in wb`s SWL / Media Programs in English, German & Spanish, just Sun 1335, 2235, Mon 0135 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 11 at 1438, S9/+10 of dead air from RHC, but a minute later comes to life. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 730, July 11 at 0703 song in English, so something unMexican? No, 0705 ID in Spanish mentioned “W“, and another song in English. IRCA Mexican log 2021 shows XEX is now only 60 kW and supposedly Deportes. I guess it can`t be sports 24/7 or is there a change? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2146 monitoring: confirmed Sunday July 10 from 2001 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, S9/+15 into nearby Noale SDR but noisy, after long IRRS ID at 2000.

Missed checking Sunday July 10 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, distracted by FM DX opening; did anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Monday July 11 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/9+5 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 11 from 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 62 Hz = 6159.938 into Maryland SDR, S8/S9+15. JL gotta go by 0300 this biweek. At 0328 ACI from 6155 VOA signing-on: that`s an hour of Kin/Kin via SAO TOME. BUT, 6165 RHC is absent altho active later. Next:

0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba] 2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
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

Or by postal money order or check in US funds on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 750, July 11 at 0701 UT, dead air obviously WSB and for next few minutes rechecked. News hole failure or deliberate Monday morning maintenance? AM hardly matters to them since they got on FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E FM DX July 10: much of the day it was working in SE USA, slightly out of reach to OK. No DX at first check 2019 UT. MUF patches often drift westward as the day goes on and by 22 UT it seems to be worth trying despite the 101-degree heat in the shade and at least that much in the garaged car.

It`s clear that everything is coming from Florida, so in follow-up research on the WTFDA FM Database, I`m searching only Florida frequencies. As usual, all on my own caradio, vertical fender antenna only, no RDS, my own ears only in real time, no recording, no internet access until later, all times strictly UT, in chrono order. Some circumstantial; any correxions or ID help welcomed. I don`t count stations, states or anything and am not in competition. Rather, each DX log is a potential learning experience. Distances approx., city-of-license to Enid, not site to site, from distancefromto.net
