Glenn Hauser logs July 8-9, 2020

** BOLIVIA. 5935, July 8 at 2358, no trace of Radio Yura, and WWCR is not on yet. That idiot***, SHN in Denmark, had reported it active to HCDX from *2240 July 6 via remote in Brasil. Followed by Claudio Galaz in Chile: ``5935. R. YURA. July 7. 0030-0054 UT. Woman talks and music. 24232, File: https://archive.org/details/152170070743 (Claudio Galaz, Receptor: TECSUN PL - 660; Antenna: Long Wire; QTH: Ovalle, Chile)``

It`s a 55 second clip, horrible reception, I can`t understand anything, let alone an ID, sounds distorted, and with buzz noise level.

***I would never be so rude as to call any fellow DXer an idiot, unless he has already called me one --- for objecting to Cuban jamming including vs my own program (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9664.86v, July 8 at 2346, weak signal with Brazilian talk and hymn, ``He Will Take Care of Me``, so RVM is active again and on the minus side of nominal 9665 instead of plus or doubleplus (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 11780, July 8 at 2352, RNA is S7/S9+5 but seriously suptorted. // 6180 not distorted and about as strong but noisier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. Radio Martí is still on the air as usual July 9 at 0008, tho I can`t vouch for program content, 5980, 6030, 7335, 7365 and DRM 7345, all in well at TWR Bonaire and without any jamming audible there. ``Informativa``, ha, checking since Kim Elliott posted this: https://www.radiotelevisionmarti.com/a/aviso-sobre-cambio-de-programaci%C3%B3n/268258.html ``julio 07, 2020, Nota informativa sobre Radio Martí

La Oficina de Transmisiones a Cuba (OCB) anuncia un cambio temporal en la programación radial a partir de este 7 de julio. Radio Martí inició una programación especial para atender asuntos técnicos en nuestras instalaciones. Seguiremos brindando información a nuestros oyentes a pesar de estas medidas provisionales. Nuestro contenido de noticias y programas se mantendrá a disposición de nuestra audiencia en la isla a través de Televisión Martí, la página web  https://www.radiotelevisionmarti.com/  y las redes sociales. Siempre contigo, Radio y Televisión Martí.``

How vague. Richard Langley asks, what about 1180? I don`t know how it normally makes it to Bonaire SDR, but at 0150 check, not // RM on SW, presumably only hearing the Rebelde jammer pileup, so maybe Marathon be off. No, the TWR Key West SDR is hearing them both at 0155 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRELAND [non]. 7290, July 8 at 1800, another anomaly check of IRRS, ITALY [non] via BULGARIA, via UTwente SDR: Aïda and quick sign-on, right into `Life Matters`, anti-abortion far-Christian show. But the Wednesday schedule on nexus-iba website claims instead `Hope for Today`, so it`s out of date, even more so still showing `War Room Pandemic` at 1700, cancelled a couple months ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 11770, since it appeared earlier July 8 for the 0600 VON broadcast, I wonder if it be on for the scheduled evening transmissions, or instead one of the other channels? At 1907, no reception here. At 1930 I tune UTwente SDR, to find 7255 occupied by Türkish from CRI Kunming site, CHINA; 9690 occupied by SPAIN with no het; but something very weak about 11769.9 vs huge splash from 11775 CRI German via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN. Checking Kiwi SDRs, there are only two in the entire continent of Africa, both in RSA, and TWR one tuned has no reception on 11770. However, the closest S American one in Pernambuco does get a weak African signal on 11769.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed July 8 at 2200, VOT English to North America is on today, and I`m listening via UTwente SDR where reception is VG after timesignal 2 seconds delayed as heard here, but there is a humwhine, continuous except for one brief break. Alan Roe had reported that the `Letterbox` had finally resumed after a long COVID-19 break, when he heard it on the real 1230 broadcast on 15450, but not the exact time, so I keep listening and note a bunch of different features before it, starting with news on a variety of subjects, and then: 2210 Turkish Press; 2212 Foreign Press; 2214 Turkey leads in aromatic plants; 2217 Today in History; 2219 Ephesus;

2222-2240 Letterbox program, ``been a long time``. Usual announcer very informal and seemingly opening letters for the first time, from: Stu Forsyth in NZ; China; Stefan Korona, Sweden; Pakistan; UAE-Sharjah; Moscow; Pakistan; UK; Japan; Brasil; Montgomery/Chicago? USA; Brasil; Malaysia. ``Next L`box in a week, goodbye.`` I did not check 9830 for direct reception here until 2246, when I found it poor S6-S9 with music.

As Alan Roe outpoints, ``It seems that some normality is returning to the English service of Voice of Turkey. The programme today (Wednesday 8 July) heard at 1230 UT on 15450 kHz included the first edition of the Letterbox Programme for many weeks. The announcer acknowledged that this was the first edition following the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic in Turkey. I had heard Letterbox on Wednesdays back in February, so it looks like this is the confirmed day for the programme. I still need to confirm, however, whether or not Letterbox is repeated in its old slot on Saturdays. Alan Roe, Teddington, UK`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E MUFs easily exceed 28 MHz around the continent, but not 88 MHz, so I settle again for these 10m hambeacons, July 8 at 2057-2114, 60% relogs, info from WJ5O roster, not exactly measured here but seem correct. For the two new ones, adding QRZ.com info. I often have to listen to many repeats to get a definite ID as they tend to fade out during it; and do not spend even more time to try to copy the whole spiels:

WEWN English, however, still absent from 15610 in the afternoon, and from 9385 at 0129 July 9 check: just as well, since it`s within one of my local noise blobs. Does anyone know what the problem is or whether they have given up on English after drastically reducing it months ago from the original 24/7? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs July 8, 2020

** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, July 8 at 1427, no signal here from LRA36, as sometimes achieves over mostly-water path from Esperanza to Enid, so is it still active Wednesdays around 1400-1600v? Yes, checked Pardinho, Brasil KiwiSDR at 1541 to hear W&M chat in Spanish -1550+, 1552 ``Nacional`` jingle, 1555 credits and ID; but poor and hashy QRM,  local at rx site? Hard to tell with that but own modulation may also be  defective (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Reception had improved by 1555, no QRM and modulation OK, mostly readable; extended again past 1600, OM announcer breaks into song briefly at 1607; 1614 another song and ``un abrazo grande`` from YL; final credits briefly and song until 1615, off? Not quite, back with a bit more music until plugpull at 1615.7* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey July 8 at 1358: nothing below 13560 except 12880 & 12870 S7-S9, JBA on 12820. 1359 quick check above and below 11 MHz at 1359 finds only 11100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, July 8 at 0100, no signal from Radio Progreso, nominally 0030-0400. Mark Coady, Ont., also mentioned not hearing it in his July 7 report but without a specific date and time, assuming that was due to poor propagation. But something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, July 8 at 0545, RHC in wrong language, still Spanish instead of English so not // 6000 JBM, 6145 undermod, and 6100 best, plus second harmonic 12200, S9/+10 at 0553. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, July 8 at 0548, at first seems XEPPM is AWOL, no signal, but then a JBA carrier and offset-minus, so probably it but QRP, exciter only? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 11769.904V, slightly unstable, July 8 at 0554, guess what, VON is trying a third frequency for the 0600 Hausa broadcast, instead of 7254.9 or 9689.9, both of which have been heard recently but vacant now. Or a mistake? This is normally its evening channel only. HOA-type music at tune in; 0558 IS of drum and flutish; 0600 first spoken word is ``Nigeria``. This is the SSOB, equivalent to 12200 Cuba harmonic, stronger than 11895 Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer vs RFA via Saipan, and much stronger than 11835 Vanuatu harmonic. What`s next, 15120? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 89.5, July 8 at 0240 UT and beyond, still there at 1550, strong open carrier with $tereo pilot on, encountered as I am fruitlessly bandscanning for sporadic E DX since there`s a 106 MHz MUF spike around Wyoming. 89.5 is one of our few almost-open frequencies. Nearest full-powers are KWGS in Tulsa and KHCD in Salina, but there is no enhancement from other stations in those areas and both are normally inaudible. Perhaps a neighbor`s unoccupied RF feeder? Certainly not mine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Wed July 8 at 0125, WTWW-2 has Ted asserting it`s ``the real QSO``, after rock music and before Jesus plug; 0136 recheck Tedad for power supplies, and another Jesus plug. If this is ``QSO RADIO SHOW LIVE TUESDAY 8 PM CENTRAL ON 5085`` per http://wtww.us/pages/schedule.php he`s veering it way off-topic. 5085 is already off at 0544 check; sometimes runs later than nominal midnight CDT close.

This page also presents a totally imaginary multi-lingual 24-hour schedule for 15810! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Mystery Pirate Radio on the air July 11, 19, and 26, on 3955 kHz

MPR has scheduled several more broadcasts over Channel 292 during July:

July 11 @ 0200 UTC
July 19 @ 1500 UTC
July 26 @ 1500 UTC.

Channel 292 sells us an hour of airtime at those hours for about 7 USD, so we are mostly just playing right now. The normal hourly airtime cost is right at 17 USD and we are a low budget station so 7 USD looks good even though non-European coverage is the pits. Perhaps we will get a report or two from outside Europe for the July 11 broadcast.

We are scheduling broadcasts for NAm listeners for later this month and next. We will let you know as soon as we have something to announce.

** CHINA. CNR1 jamming survey, July 7: at 1335, 13530 in Chinese, S7 to S9+10.

From 1340: 13070 S7-S9; 12880 S8-S9; 11440 S3-S4 with flutter; 11150* JBA; 11100 S6-S8; 11070 S1-S3.

At 1358: 14500, JBA carrier.

Rescan the above ranges shortly after 1400: ALL above frequencies off.

At 1453: 11460, JBA Chinese.

*BTW: the local wideband noiseblobs I first complained about weeks ago, at approx. 360-kHz intervals in the 7-11+ MHz range are still there but quite a bit weaker than originally; no doubt OG&E has quit working on that problem unless I keep after them. One peak QRMs the 11150 above, and another is centered about 9395, bad news for hearing anything on WRMI-6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13766 & 13635 approx., July 7 at 1339, JBA spurblobs out of 13700 RHC, plus & minus 64-65 kHz, trace of F# tones, first time detected in weeks, but hardly up to par. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 1446 recheck still trace about 13635 while 13700 rates S9 to S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, July 7 at 1451, S9+20 open carrier already on warming up for CRI Plus relay in English, now restricted to only one hour from 1500. Unknown how much then managed to modulate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7290, July 7 at 1756, via UTwente SDR, checking IRRS Tuesday since on Monday at least half of the following hour was dead air, possibly all of it instead of WORLD OF RADIO --- did anyone hear it then, or try to? Open carrier on at tune-in, VG signal with usual QRM de 7291 RTTY and splashes from 10 kHz plus and minus; a few sex before 1759 cut on modulation amid Aïda theme --- which is not always to be heard at all; just before 1800 very brief sign-on and right into `Feature Story News` for 5 minutes, not just headlines, starting with Bolsonaro gets it, CV situation in Australia; 1803 sports segment. 1805 no program intro but a fan of Danny Doyle starts talking and eventually plays a song of his; very Irish. He died last August, so this is not news now: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Doyle_(singer) Ireland, you know, is the real corporate HQ of IRRS, not Italy; tax haven?

1832 recheck, still modulating and `AWR Wavescan` is underway, same as heard earlier via Zambia, first item about past clandestines in New Hebrides/Vanuatu. Later about Gough Island, beyond Tristan da Cunha, whence we learn it`s pronounced Goff, as webresearch suggests,  even tho there are no inhabitants now to ask.  https://www.howtopronounce.com/gough Like ``cough`` tho one example is more like ``guff``. Recheck 1858 whether `WS` will get chopped off like Dan Roberts? Yes, IRRS sign-off at 1859, but only as Jeff is reciting the postal address in closing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.045, July 7 circa 2000, Arabic bits alternating with Qur`aning, JBA but sufficiently soporific to accompany my napping. This SBC always off+frequency plus (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12050, July 7 at 1402, WEWN Spanish frequency is S9 of dead air; by 1450 recheck now is modulating RCC stuff. English still AWOL from 15610 at 1924 check, while 15825 WWCR, q.v., is 20 over 9 at about same megameter distance, different angle clockwiser (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, July 7 at 1925, WWCR has sporadic E boost to S9+20, enhancing the #1 squeal, but wait, there`s MORE: Double audio at equal levels, not only TOMBS as scheduled, but some other gospel huxter aiming for children, including kidsongs about Jeezus. I compare to other WWCRs and other BS: 9980, WWCR-4 is blasting with Overcomer alone; 9455, WRMI likewise; not // other WWCRs, 12160 with political huxter, and 13845 with Dead Gene Scott; BTW, 13845 is relatively weak compared to 12160 & 15825, which does not make sense propagationally; must axually be underpowered.

But what is the second audio? At 2023 I concentrate on that for a while; maybe same program, closing with contact info including website several times, reallifewithjackkidd.org --- not sure about the Kidd as he never spells it. Also phone 877-777-2346, and P O Box 12, somewhere with ZIP 91709; 2025 into USA Radio News, which of course is also far-right, far-Christian slanted, a perfect fit.

91709 is Chino Hills, San Bernardino county, California. Since the other WWCR transmitters are otherwise occupied, could this be bleeding from co-located AM subsidiary, 1300 WNQM?

No program schedule at http://www.1300wnqm.com/ but does list programs for linkages without times at http://www.1300wnqm.com/pgm-links_wnqm.html but nothing resembling that described above.

Suddenlink search is smart enough to figure out it`s really this: https://reallifewithjackhibbs.org/

So direct look at it:

https://reallifewithjackhibbs.org/listen/
leading to what matches today`s very episode: ``Being A Christian While Being A Kid – C - July 7, 2020 - Colossians 1:9-14``

Those verses are about indoctrination, per my free NIV pocket ``The Way for Cowboys`` Bible handed out years ago at an Enid Expo home show. Of course, kids are religion-free until elders start implanting something. And thence to

https://reallifewithjackhibbs.org/stationlisting/
including, before I even get to Tennessee, filed between DC and Florida!:

``europe & africa
City      Station Frequency  Day & Time
Shortwave WWCR    15.825 MHz M-F 3:00 PM``
In Eu & Af you have to know to convert CDT to local time!

Never mind WNQM, not on the roster. Belatedly I check WWCR-1 program sked, and bingo, there is Real Radio, with Jack Hibbs M-F at 2000-2030 UT, so B.S. is the intruder now on 15825, not vice versa.

There is probably a pot dedicated to TOMBS on the audio mixer feeding #1 transmitter, which has been left open as well as the intended program source. Can it be that at 1300 WWCR Avenue, no one is listening to their own station? Then how can they expect anyone else to? I certainly would not unless I run across something wacko like this. Vying with RHC for SAWA status?

Paul Buch in California also noticed this double audio at 1905 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, July 7 at 1448, trace of talk i.e. WJHR Milton FL, seldom audible; much like the level of 15034-USB Trenton Military on hardly propagable band without sporadic E (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27385-LSB, July 7 at 1930, pileup of freebanders on the most active frequency, with sporadic E regnant here and on regular CB channels, if not the 10m beaconband. One mentions ``on the shore of Lake Erie``; another, ``Kentucky``; at 1946, ``107, 14-14, Chicago ... 73s and enjoy your DX``. It seems the FBers have some kind of numerical ID system. Can anyone explain or even reference a roster? More such activity on 27375-LSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Chinese jamming of AIR

Jamming by Chinese authorities of All India Radio’s broadcast to China on SW:
 
Question: How many days will it take for the Chinese agencies to find out and jam a new SW frequency of All India Radio beamed to China, whose old frequency they were jamming?
 
Answer: If the latest case is any indication, it is 6 days.
 
Case study:
AIR changed it SW frequencies to China on July 1, 2020 as follows:
Chinese 1145-1315 UTC 17595 kHz (replacing 17510)
Tibetan 1215-1330 UTC 9580 kHz (replacing 9450)
 
However full jamming continued on the old frequencies till July 5, 2020 although these changes were reported in the Dx press even before it came into effect.
 
The jamming would start even before AIR begins its transmission and normally ends only after AIR signs off.
 
The jamming consists of programs in Chinese language and/or jamming noises.
 
On June 6, 2020 no jamming was noticed on the old frequencies but at around 1230 UTC the jamming started on the new frequencies.

** CUBA. 11670, July 7 at 0046, S9+10/20 of dead air from RHC; 11800 is also S9+10/20 but just barely modulated; always flanked by parasitic JBA spurs 11790 & 11810, no modulation audible as occasionally can achieve. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Was still tuned to 11670 after Spain check at 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690 VG > 12030 G > 11940 F >> 11670 no signal, Monday July 6 tune-in shortly after 2200, REE already playing music, but soon Justin Coe about flamenco and jazz, the M/W/F English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, July 6 at 2203, no signal from VOT English to us, nor any NSS RTTY. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: not confirmed the Monday July 6 at 1801 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria; did anyone hear it? I was late tuning in after lunch at 1831 and by then it was dead air! Carrier on vs RTTY 7291 warble and usual splatter from 7280 Vietnam, but no modulation; nor at recheck 1853 during which the SW Report should have partially aired. I fear that the first semihour was also dead. As monitored via UTwente SDR, of course.

No luck either UT Tuesday July 7 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, this one off the air, not even a JBA carrier, while the others on 7730 & 7570 were inbooming. 7780 still AWOL at 0125 and past 0200. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 15610, July 6 at 2023 check; and 9385, July 7 at 0055 & 0323 chex, WEWN English still missing from both frequencies; but 5970 Spanish still extant at 0055 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860.012, July 7 at 0048, Qur`an and Cuban pulse jamming adding up to S7-S9, must be Republic of Yemen Radio via one of the Sa`udi sites. Seldom heard anymore, let alone in our mornings like it used to be, of course blocked by Radio Martí at 14-22, and Cuban jamming even prolonger. Not in HFCC A-20, nor anything from Sa`udi Arabia. Aoki shows ROYR sked as 02-23, EiBi and WRTH Update as 02-22, and this is after all the nightmiddle there. It might have expanded to 24h during Ramadan, but that`s long gone. Nothing else in any of them until China/Tibet after 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Radio Yura reactvated

Radio Yura - La Voz de los Ayllus - is back on the air transmitting from the village Yura located between Potosí and Uyuni in Bolivia. The frequency is 5935,0 kHz. Monitored from s/on at 2240 UTC on July 6th 2020 via remote SDR receives in Brazil. Very weak here at my QTH in Randers, Denmark.  

The widely reported slogan of the station Yutan Ayllu Yura is wrong. The correct spelling is: Radio Jatun Ayllu Yura.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
29 June - 05 July 2020

Solar activity was very low. Region 2766 (N06 L=117, class/area
Bxo/beta on 04 Jul) was the only active region on the visible disk.
The region was in decay at the end of the reporting period.

Other activity included a DFS, approximately 18 degrees in length,
which erupted in the SE quadrant beginning around 05/0630 UTC.
Subsequent SOHO/LASCO C2 imagery showed the related CME signature
after 05/1412 UTC. Analysis for an Earth-directed component is
ongoing.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
normal background to moderate levels.

Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to unsettled. Unsettled
levels were observed on 01 Jul due to sustained southward Bz and on
04-05 Jul in response to a positive polarity CH HSS. The remainder
of the summary period was at quiet levels under nominal solar wind
conditions.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
06 July - 01 August 2020

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels throughout the
outlook period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to be normal background to moderate levels throughout the
outlook period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at quiet to unsettled
levels. A recurrent positive polarity CH HSS is expected to cause
isolated unsettled levels on 06 Jul and again on 31 Jul - 01 Aug.
The remainder of the outlook period is expected to be at quiet
levels. Analysis and modeling of the 5 Jul CME is not complete and
the presence of an Earth-directed component is possible.

** KOREA NORTH. 6045, July 6 at 1339, nothing but noise jamming. Ron Howard upon Asilomar State Beach, California, agrees: ``KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on 1119+, on July 6. Totally blocked by super strong white noise jamming from N. Korea. The former enjoyable reception of VOF has come to an end for the time being!``

I also have an unjammed? signal on 5990, presumably Echo of Hope, South to North Korea as Ron also confirms (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.2, July 6 at 1346, JBA carrier presumed still VOK knocked off frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: confirmed new time of 0030 UT Monday July 6 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+10/20, the only frequency on 285-degree azimuth from Okee, which crosses: Houston TX; just south of Nogales, Sonora; right on Honolulu; Port Moresby; but plenty signal here 30 degrees offbeam, second only to 315 on 7570, 5850. Just prior at 0029.5, an Allen Graham in Quito ID and a fragment of Bob Zanotti in Berne, all he gets out is his name before I interrupt him without intending to.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 vs high storm noise level almost exactly off the side of this 44-degree beam; this time at 0129.5 a Rudy Espinal ID, and again a fragment of BZ, why?

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, VG at Maine SDR

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 starting at 0301:45 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5130, S9+10/20 including storm crashes.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG at TWR Bonaire; good at Pardinho SP Brasil where slight jamming is audible under. Next:

``Also July 6 at 0500, zero signal from WEWN on 9385 kHz, scheduled 0000-0900 UT -- 73! Ivo Ivanov`` --- So their English transmitter(s) down (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17815, Monday July 6 at 1452, open carrier S9/+10, quickly turned off. Probably WHRI test; available 14-21 daily but normally used only on Sundays --- or so I thought until checking

https://familybroadcastingcorporation.com/whr/whr-iframe-page/?search=Angel1 which claims `Angel 1` runs 17.815 every day at 19-22 except for a switch to 17540 at 2105-2130, which I also find hard to believe; exaggerated scheduling beyond axual SW usage? Mostly just Music with IRN News on the hour, hardly worth the watts.

It also claims Angel 6 on 7385 not only most of the night, but all day long! Don`t you believe it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs July 4-5, 2020

** ALGERIA [non]. 13820, Saturday July 4 at 1830, RTA International via FRANCE, again with beepery, but no English, just Arabic, 1836 into Spanish with lite French accent but also has to pronounce properly names in Arabic. Via UTwente SDR. Richard Langley, NB reports there was no English during entire 18-19 hours July 3 or 4:
``It seems they take pieces of the different language segments from the programs on their Internet/FM/satellite broadcasts (in English, for example): https://www.radioalgerie.dz/rai/en/emissions/list
Some information (in English) about Radio Algérie Internationale: https://www.radioalgerie.dz/rai/en/emissions/list%EF%BB%BF
The "funky" transmitter was used again today for the international broadcast. -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, July 5 at 0607, RHC English, undermodulated S9 vs CODAR, unlike fundamental 6100. Maybe Esperanto at 0700 was on 12200 too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** DJIBOUTI [non]. 17870, Sunday July 5 at 1401, no signal here from LV de Djibouti as scheduled, but a poor/fair signal via UTwente, spotchecked rest of hour, all talk in unknown language until 1458 a bit of HOA vocal music and off 1459*. I notified the WOR iog of this ASAP but at presstime only Ivo Ivanov replied at 1859:
``Good signal here, 1400 in Afar, 1415 in Somali, 1430 in French, 1445 in Arabic and 1457 again in Afar. Probably tx is Secretbrod [BULGARIA] or per Aoki is Grigoriopol [PRIDNESTROVYE]``.
Website provides audio and texts of broadcasts in May, which were then weekly, but none since 22 May: https://lavoixdedjibouti.info/
Christian Ghibaudo reported on June 21 to bdxc-news: ``The latest broadcast is on their Facebook page. It's June 19, there is a weekly broadcast on Friday (Radio Vendredi). They broadcast again on shortwave because the government of Djibouti has cut the Internet in the country, making listening difficult. The association La Voix de Djibouti is based in Paris. Regards from Sunny Nice, Christian Ghibaudo.``
A week ago, Ivo reported to the WOR iog: ``BELGIUM(non) BRB Radio LVD
La Voix du Djibouti on 17870 kHz NOT ON AIR, June 28
1400-1500 on 17870 unknown kW / unknown to EaAf
Afar/Arabic/French/Somali Sunday. BRB Radio LVD La Voix du Djibouti was on air 1st & 3rd Sun June 7 & 21, NOT EVERY Sun -- 73! Ivo Ivanov`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, July 5 at 0613, VON manages to be on air today at S9/+10 in presumed Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re my 1270 KRXO log now //107.9 translator, Chris KC5IIE, Krug, Tulsa, replies: ``Oops! I stand corrected Glenn, 107.7 "The Franchise" is in OKC, that explains why I don`t hear it. 107.9 is the FM outlet for 1270 KRXO, it is simulcasting their programming. Sorry for the confusion, 73 and Happy 4th!`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U K [non]. 12030, July 5 at 0606, news in French, whence? BBC sounder. Why not Ascension? This is via USAGM SAO TOME at 0600-0629, and modulated today unlike June 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. High sporadic E MUFs so I check for 10mb beacons, July 5 at 1438- --- unIDs around 28237, 28285, 28297; then:

** U S A. ``Hello Glenn, Happy 4th of July, Based on SDR trolling and some listener check-ins, the WBCQ 4th of July in the Park should have done OK near you although there was some storm activity in parts of the region. The next special will be Labor Day, again a multi-program effort. Although I am serving as cat-herder as Uncle Bill, the larger purpose is to showcase WBCQ's music programs generally, and I hope that the other programs (Marion's Attic, Behavior Night, Lost Discs, Rock Wave and others) also attract new listeners, and perhaps this might even inspire some aspiring radio host to start a new program as well. At a minimum, we hope to serve as a reminder that music on licensed broadcast shortwave (not just pirates) is very much alive. Best, William "Bill" Tilford, Owner/Producer, Tilford Productions, LLC`` 0222 UT July 5. My reply:
``Hi Bill, Enjoyed it. Since I was at the computer instead of the SW radio, I could not resist listening via the WBCQ stream. I am ashamed? Anyhow some of it was in $tereo and the scratches were clearer, hi. As you know, SW from `BCQ is not the best here, even without storms, and especially without 500 kW. In scheduling, you might want to consider possible competition from --- TV, as PBS, CNN and NBC were all starting their 4OJ specials at same time. Your fireworx were hard to see``
We proudly flew the American Flag all day (as well as on Flag Day) until sunset; the only one visible in our neighborhood. (There used to be a constant Confederate flag a block south, but maybe it wore out). (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15610, July 4 at 2010, zero signal from WEWN, not even a JBA carrier which is normally there at minimum afternoons; while 15825 WWCR is S9+10/20; 15770 WRMI S7-S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 93.1, July 5 at 1823 UT, ``Detroit`s New Country 93-1`` briefly over CCI from KS. WTFDA FM Database:
``WDRQ 93.1 DETROIT MI 26.5 kW H&V, 204.0 m HAAT, 42-28-16 83-12-03 HD COUNTRY NEW COUNTRY 93.1`` 1433 km = 890 stmi city-to-Enid
Andy Robins, Kalamazoo, was getting 10m beacons from all over, including OK, 18-19 UT. Sporadic E MUF was way above 100 MHz in spots, so I have been DXing in two sessions before and after lunch, but little to show for it, mainly traces of DX CCI to fringe semi-open frequencies. Quit at 1832. unIDs include:
1732, 92.1 mentions Hagerstown, likely MD or IN, but none right there
1734, 106.7, CCI to OK Spanish
1739, 95.3, CCI to KOKC translator
1744, 93.1, trace of Spanish CCI to KS
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** ZAMBIA. 11680, Sunday July 5 at 0600, AWR Wavescan #593 via VOHA, good S9, another episode about early radio in New Hebrides/Vanuatu (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27385-LSB, July 4 around 2000, very active freebander channel, in English, yet no beacons audible above 28200 --- so sharp Es MUF cutoff between them ATM? BTW, why does everyone on CB speak with an exaggerated GOB Southern accent; required? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
This report dispatched at 1957 UT July 5

Media & Tech - 05/07/2020


Graziano D'Andrea e RDE Radio Diffusione Europea, il nuovo servizio "pubblico" transfrontaliero...

Parte domani la nuova iniziativa radiofonica di RDE Radio Diffusione Europea destinata a far parlare di se: dopo i tanti programmi di successo realizzati negli ultimi anni, l'emittente triestina varca i confini italiani per mettersi a servizio anche dei nostri connazionali oltre frontiera. La conduzione è certamente di lusso, i 24 anni in cui Graziano D'Andrea si è occupato radiofonicamente di temi transfrontalieri sono una consolidata certezza. Lo ha fatto per Radio Capodistria, per la RAI Sede Regionale Friuli Venezia Giulia, per la webradio dell’Universitá Popolare di Trieste, ed è adesso arrivato il momento di farlo anche dove non può sentirsi che a casa sua, a Radio Diffusione Europea. Tutti i suoi programmi, fino ad oggi, hanno ricevuto riscontri in termini di gradimento sempre molto favorevoli. Si pensa, a torto, che certi temi possono essere pesanti e riservati ad un pubblico limitato. ma Graziano D'Andrea ha dalla sua l'averli indiscutibilmente trattati con serietà, professionalità, competenza e con uno stile del tutto personale. Hoa incuriosito ed informato anche ascoltatori che non erano a conoscenza della storia e delle dinamiche delle genti di frontiera e del mondo delle Comunità degli Italiani dell’Istria, Fiume e Dalmazia. Da domani 6 luglio, sarà in onda dalle 15.05 con “Passaggi”, in onda dal lunedì al venerdì dopo le ore 15.00. Nella prima puntata collegamento con la Comunità degli Italiani di Pirano e la presentazione del nuovo numero de “l’Arena di Pola” con il direttore Viviana Facchinetti.

Radio Diffusione Europea trasmette in onde medie 819 e 1584 Khz da Trieste per la fascia Adriatica fino alle Marche su lato italiano e fino a Fiume su lato Croato. Naturalmente siamo in web e il sito dispone anche di servizio podcast per riascoltare la trasmissione.

Per la webTV bisogna entrare nel sito della radio ( in Home page) su www.radiodiffusioneeuropea.net. La radio e la TV sono fruibili per sistemi android scaricando l'app di Radio Diffusione Europea. Per Ios attualmente solo radio, la tv arriva a breve. Per chi ha FireTV stick di Amazon c'è la App da scaricare così come per la radio su Sistemi Amazon Alexa e Google.

Non mancate dunque..... Graziano D'Andrea e RDE Radio Diffusione Europea vi aspettano... loro, arrivano sempre prima.

TEXAS RADIO SHORTWAVE to BROADCAST NEW MUSIC PROGRAM on JULY 18, 2020

TEXAS RADIO SHORTWAVE to BROADCAST NEW MUSIC PROGRAM on JULY 18, 2020

GULF OF MEXICO, July 3, 2020/ - Texas Radio Shortwave, an American free radio station, today announced the first in a series of every-so-often programs featuring listener-curated music.

The inaugural Treasure Chest of Texas Music will hold Texas artists’ songs selected by German listener Robert Kipp. It will be broadcast at 1800 UTC on July 18, 2020. International commercial broadcaster Channel 292 in Germany will transmit the program on 3955 kHz and 6070 kHz with a power of 10 kW.

Listeners outside Europe may wish to tune to this broadcast using a European software-defined radio (SDR) like the one at the University of Twente in The Netherlands. The URL is http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/.

A limited-edition commemorative electronic verification will be available for listeners sending correct, detailed reception reports. The email address is texasradiosw@gmail.com.

Reception reports must include times, song titles, the text of announcements, a SINPO/SIO signal rating, information on receiver and antenna, and comments on the program content.

Listeners using a remote SDR should mention that. Texas Radio Shortwave would like to receive audio clips along with written reports.

North American free radio stations are not licensed. Hobbyists run most of them purely for fun, although some have political or religious agendas. Most free radio stations transmit using Single Side Band with modern amateur radio equipment; others use Amplitude Modulated vintage or homemade equipment. It is common for free radio stations to broadcast images using Slow Scan TV.

Texas Radio Shortwave sails in international waters off the South Texas coast. Its programs are broadcast in North America and Europe.

73 and Arrgghh.
Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then always be a pirate.

Glenn Hauser logs July 3-4, 2020

** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, July 4 at 0543, RTA, Arabic via FRANCE with the self-QRMing beeping Issoudun transmitter. BTW, that was also applied to 13820 during the July 2 English segment around 1830; but you never know which transmitter will be in use at which time on which frequency of RTA, RFI, or some other relay, from one day to the next (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 4 at 1357: 13160 S4; 12820 JBA carrier; 12800 S9 in Chinese.

At 1423, 13160, S7-S9 music; 1424: 10820 S4-S5; 10920 JBA; 11120; 11440 S5-S6; 11460 JBA carrier; 1428: 13530 JBA.

At 1429: 9180 S5-S8; 9200 S6-S9; 9230 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, July 3 at 1409, JBA talk here, presumed 2 x 6000 RHC, which quickly checked is still on and barely audible, but 12000 gone at 1410*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 3 at 1415, RHC is absent when this is supposed to be on; 15230 is on but S9-S7 of dead air, or JBM? Something`s always wrong at RHC. July 4 at 1400 both are on and modulating, VP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, July 4 at 0547, RHC English at S5-S9 vs CODAR, quite audible but not as big as last time on 2 x 6100. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.2, July 4 at 1429, JBA carrier from presumed VOK still way off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, July 3 at 0606, VON is gone again from both possible frequencies. Ditto July 4 at 0558 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5890, July 4 at 0544, Brother HyStairical is back now that WWCR-4 has been repaired and reactivated; see also USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, July 3 at 2230, VOT, English to NAm confirmed active today via KiwiSDR Pardinho SP Brasil which I happened to have just checked for WOR/WRMI; but with heavy splash from much bigger signal on 9820; at first thought it might be SP`s local R 9 de Julho, 9818v, but in Chinese, so HFCC as CNR, 150 kW, 290 degrees from Xi`an; specifically CNR2 per Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28281-CW, July 3 at 1420, beacon ID W8E? copied, probably this which fits with another letter, from WJ5O roster:
``28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL``

Sporadic E; in the previous minute also had one on 28205; and on 28255 a K6##, but none listed around there.

28280-CW, July 3 at 1424, dash and ``DE K5AB ... CENTRAL TEXAS...`` also heard a few days ago, now VG at peaks:
``28.280 K5AB C GOLDTHWAITE, TEXAS # 50W, GP VERTICAL Power increase 5 May 16``
Lots of hets on CB, and WWCR 15825 & 13845 also Es-enhanced (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: confirmed first WRMI airing, Friday July 3 at 2200 on 9955: fair at TWR Bonaire & DR SDRs; better to good at Pardinho SP Brasil.

Also confirmed, UT Sat July 4 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5800 VG S9+30/40 direct, fair at Maine SDR; 7780, JBA direct with high storm noise level (HSNL), VG at Maine; 5010 JBA direct HSNL, poor at Maine, the latters checked at 0145. Storm just south of Garfield in next county Kingfisher, but also along KS/CO border into NE, skipping Mount Rushmore SD; ND-MB-ON et al.

Thanks this week for financial support from John Carver, mid-north IN, for a generous check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490v, 6160v, 5130v, UT Sat July 4 after 0000, for AAAWWW, these WBCQs are detectable, very poor signals with storm noise; all I hear at a quick check is Angela overmodulating an opinion on current events.

Has been repeating 24 hours later on 7490v at least, but not this week, as UT Sun July 5 at 0000-0100 is when Uncle Bill`s much-publicized 4th of July musical special is due, on 7490+v and 6159.9v.

Unfortunately simultaneously with `A Capitol Fourth` on PBS-TV, but repeated a sesquihour later at least on OETA; and CNN`s 4OJ special at 0000-0400 UT, not to mention countless local events, including Enid, where the Enid Symphony Orchestra is barreling ahead with its traditional performance at Meadowlake Park despite the risks; people are encouraged to spread out as there is plenty of space around the lake, but in best of times getting in and out is problematic, e.g. avoiding those burning poison gas, i.e. smokers who think it`s OK as long as it`s outside; and parking is a nightmare.

I urged conductor Doug Newell to reconsider; what about the musicians crammed under the canopy? The windy ones at least cannot be masked. How about recording and/or broadcasting it? He says they don`t have the rights to do so, which would be an additional expense.

The concert is always free to the public, underwritten this year by Security National Bank. Starts around 0130 UT after a full day schedule of other risky events at the Park, and to accompany fireworx circa 0230 when it`s finally darkening.

To avoid the hassles, the past few years we have been attending instead dress rehearsals at 4 pm Saturday back in Symphony Center, but not this year in that enclosed and possibly crowded venue. The fireworx can of course be seen from a considerable distance away, but the music inaudible. Years before I had tried to get them to employ a Part 15 FM transmitter for better sound than over the loudspeakers, and maybe audible just outside the park in cars. Nix.

ESO apparently is itching to get going again with no performances since March, the final scheduled concert of the year, an all-Beethoven bash in April for season subscribers only, postponed. BTW, there aren`t enough local musicians to form an orchestra, so ESO has to draw in others from elsewhere in OK. As a 51-K city, we are lucky to have it and hope all of them survive (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, July 3 at 2044, NO signal from WRMI-9 when RFPI is scheduled on Fridays; normally a JBA carrier at least; while 15825 WWCR & 15610 WEWN do now achieve that much (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7385, July 4 at 0236, this WHRI is now squealing, like 7315 VOV relay previously; now 7315 is also on in English not // gospel huxters, and also squealing.

9825, July 4 at 0555, WHRI squealing here too with g.h., maybe one of same transmitters as earlier on 7 MHz. Haven`t they noticed in Cypress Creek, Furman, Noblesville or South Bend?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, July 4 at 0239, WWCR-4 is back on, non-TOM during this hour, following several days off for repairs. Day frequency 9980 also resumed at 1654 check, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

UNIDENTIFIED. 12670.0-USB, July 4 at 1359, 2-way in Spanish, one of them screaming, encountered as I bandscan for CNR1 jammers. Per Klingenfuss 2002y, this was not a ship SSB frequency, but WNU New Orleans was in CW/DIG on 12670.4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1815 UT July 4
