Glenn Hauser logs July 15-16, 2022

** ANGOLA. 4949.720, July 15 at 2152, presumed RNA is JBA S7 mostly noise into Namibia SDR with signature offset, no signal into RSA SDR and there are no other Kiwis in southern Africa. Tnx to tip from Manuel Méndez, Spain, who reported this yesterday to the WOR iog:

“Rádio Nacional de Angola, 4949,7 on air after months without detecting it — Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, Log in Reinante, NW of Spain, Tecsun PL-880, cable antenna, 8 meters: ANGOLA, 4949.7, Rádio Nacional de Angola, Mulenvos, 1956-2016, 14-07, comments, songs. Strong carrier, extremely weak audio, barely audible, best on LSB.“

Tropical Bands Monitor as of 1 July shows this on 4949.7 had been reported this year only in January and March. Once upon a time RNA ran all-night and its off-frequency carrier at least could be detected in deep North America. As of last year, WRTH showed 4950 as 24 h with A program in Portuguese, nominal 25 kW; while MW 945 had some foreign languages local evenings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, July 15 at 1852, LRA36 is on with a surprise late Friday broadcast; tnx to tips from Hugo López, Chile and Manuel Méndez, Spain. Sufficient S5/S9 into Argentine SDR. Amid interview of a guy by the gals who are laughing a lot. He`s talking about high winds and other weather info, mentions Centro Meteorológico Marambio, so maybe he`s visiting from that other base. Only QRM occasional clix. Unfortunately at 1900-2000 UT Fridays I always listen to KUCO for `The Score` cinemusic in $tereo. LRA36 is off by my next chance to check at 2022. Maybe this compensate for totally missing their scheduled Wednesday 1500 transmission? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. Correxion to a typo not noticed by me until July 14. Is anyone paying attention? I wish I were before I publish an error! Second frequency was given as 9873.86 instead of 9673.86; FIXED:

9673.80 / 9673.86, July 9 at 0621, RVM praise music jumping around these two spots as I try to measure it. Anyeditor who published this error must now also publish this correxion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9440, July 15 at 2133 and 2201, NO signal in English from R. Cairo into UTwente; it`s better than something since something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA [non]. 11750, July 15 at 1650, no signal of SLBC into Kuwait SDR; supposedly 1630-1830 with domestic service relay. Had not paid attention before but checking now whether it be off due to strife. At 1620-1650, VIRI blox 11750 in Bengali: how could they possibly know about SLBC since it`s not in HFCC? After Qur`an, 1630 chimes and “Radio Tehran“ ID. After 1700 into Bengaluru SDR, nothing either on 11750. I have the vague impression that SLBC 11750 may have been sporadic already. The other times to seek SLBC are 0030-0100 and 0200-0230 on 11905, often reported from N America. Of course there are lots of relays via Trincomalee site: Aoki has 36 entries including SLBC. Other have reported some of those still on.

BTW, the protesters` takeover of SLBC TV I quoted on WOR 2147 turned out to be a bit exaggerated: they were allowed on for 15 minutes. I thought it somewhat suspicious that the language signer in the corner continued during clip unabated. See this via Ron Howard, WOR iog:

** TURKEY. 9830, July 15 at 2201 and 2212, NO signal from VOT English
into UTwente, but something weak, presumably CNR1 Beijing 572 site
also scheduled. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2146 monitoring: “From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, From the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees. Dear Glenn: World of Radio, monitoring and confirming the latest for #2146, continued troubled time hearing at 0130 UTC on 5850 kHz too much daylight hours reduced reception, WRMI:
9395, 0130, 0141, static QRN, 0159, July 9 UTC 2022 [Sat] 9395, static, QSB fading, 0043, 0059 (S7 signal level), 0159, 9395, July 12 UTC 2022 [Tue]. {??? 0159 UT Tue, starting at 0130 is not a scheduled time for WOR, just 0030; your typo or their error/change?}
9395, static QRN, 2331, 2342 (S5,6 signal levels), 2359 July 12 [Tue] 5850, missed broadcast sleeping, 1100, July 13 [Wed 1030] 9395, 0029, 0059 (45343), usual static QRN;

WORLD OF RADIO 2147 monitoring: confirmed first broadcasts UT Friday July 15 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 S9+10/20 direct, preceded by two overlapping IDs and WOR not starting until 0130.2; presumably same on 7730, S9/+10 and noisy, both direct.

Not confirmed UT Friday July 15 at 0330 on WRMI 7780: rather, previous WOR 2146 aired again; not sure why, some file mixup? But I have rechecked that 2147 is ready for all subsequent airings on WRMI thru July 21.

Also confirmed Friday July 15 at 1430 on WRMI 9955; inaudible at Bonaire where it`s aimed but S7/9+10 direct, no jamming audible. A 2-minute music buffer at 1428 following the Tourette`s gospel huxter blaster preceding.

Confirmed NOT airing Friday July 15 at 1815 on IRRS 7290, AM Italia 1323, 918, usual third-Friday pre-emption for some classic rock; checked via UTwente and Noale SDRs.

Confirmed the MW-only AM Italia airing Friday July 15 at 2030 on 918 & 1323 kHz; 918 at S9/+5 is better than 1323 only S7/S8, and no LW 207; but by 2031, 918 cuts off and on the air, and/or when on without modulation. While 1323 seems to stay as I switch back & forth. Next:

** U S A. 9330, July 15 at 0128, no signal from WLCR/WBCQ. Ailing? Yes, a twit as of 13 hours before 0000 UT July 16:

“Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ · 13h — Working at the stations. The great 500 KW transmitter is down. Very complex. All of us troubleshooting now. Free speech radio continues. Angela & Allan on tonight at 8pm eastern on 7490/6160/5130/3265khz. Support radio-please listen. Your prayers appreciated. The big one⚡️.“

Well, UT Sat July 16 after 0000, 3265 is JBA S5 at Maryland SDR, mostly local and storm noise but SAM as carrier +151 Hz = 3265.152v. 3265.153v much better S8/S9 into nearest PEI SDR. Apparently during AAAWWW original broadcast is only time it`s occasionally onturned. 3265 is not even included in the program guide. A new AAAWWW, since discussing the Webb Space Telescope images. Angela is not within grasp of Allan but on a lo-fi remote phone line. I guess he is in ME, she in FL. Or, “she is on an errand“.

Almost whole program is Allan lexuring us on the Universe and Everything, Relativity, with the inevitable Christian undertones. I`m listening via the 7490v webcast. Datestamp at 0038 as he is from Studio 1 in Monticello, for 15 July YOOLF 2022. Never heard anything about what`s wrong with the SuperStition. 0053 into email (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3215 & 5890, July 15 at 0630, both these WWCR TOMBS frequencies are off. Now we see in the program schedules dated July 1 that they are intentionally OFF AIR: WWCR-1 M-F at 0500-1100 3215 and 1100-1130 15825; and WWCR-4 M-F 0500-1200 5890. BUT same remain on air Saturdays and Sundays with TOMBS. No other Off Air times are shown. Absent 5890 also deprives us of the leapfrog mixing product over 5935 landing on 5980. It seems that dead Brother Stair`s income is dropping (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
