Glenn Hauser logs November 19, 2017


** ALASKA [non]. 9600, Nov 19 at 0253, New Life Station is wrapping up English hour via MADAGASCAR with schedule: on 7370 at 08, 10 and 12; 7355 at 14 (which are really KNLS, the last one clashing with NZ); and 9600 at 02, 15560 at 03 which are really MWV; poor-fair, S4-S7. (The other English hours from MWV are African Pathways Radio, 11825 at 04, 17640 at 18 & 20) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOTSWANA. 4930, Nov 19 at 0228, music at S5-S7 where normally there is nothing. VOA should start at 0300, as confirmed by HFCC: ``4930 0300 0600 53,57 BOT 100 20 0 750 1234567 291017 240318 D 4930 Eng BOT IBB IBB 376`` At 0230 quick announcement by YL DJ, sounds like Hyper Heather, but presumably not Music Time in Africa. So why is BOT relay on this early? Even in easternmost Africa it`s before 6 am local. Of course, possibly it could be some other IBB site for this pre-hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** BOTSWANA. 9825, Nov 19 at 0251, S7-S4 open carrier; presumably IBB warming up for 0300-0330 Arabic, despite CRI Chinese via Kashgar scheduled until 0300 but inaudible here. As Aoki/NDXC clarifies, but not HFCC, it`s really the Hello Darfur service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 6935.20-LSB, Nov 19 at 0217, JBA sounds Brazuguese; then cuts on and off a much stronger speaker surely in Brazuguese, a pirate net? Here is a similar log from Sept 27 in the HFU Peskie sexion:
In this entire board could also be found some like the unID 2-ways in Spanish INTRUDERS I have been catching (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHILE. 6964.89, Nov 19 at 0214, JBA carrier with talk. No logs of it on HF Underground N American board. 

How about Latin American pirates; were, but moved to Peskies, here:

Chris Smolinski in Maryland has been tracking this since October 26, and here`s one reply, from FFM: ``«Reply #6 on: November 16, 2017, 0115 UTC» I've published some posts about they before, they are chileans form Coquimbo region in the north of Chile`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7340, Nov 19 at 0245, violin concerto, surely not RHC ---- no, this frequency is now Romania, // 5910. In fact, had almost overlooked the fact that 7340 has been totally deleted from the new RHC B-17 schedule in effect less than a week. 

It was a surprise when Arnie activated an Habana 40-m frequency for the first time in A-17, contrary to his holier-than-thou stance about out-of-band broadcasting. Now he`s holier again since this is a fixed, not broadcast band, despite being dominated by many other broadcasters and not just yanquis. Considering how 11 and 9 MHz fade out at night, it could be quite useful (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, UT Sun Nov 19 at 0221, Radio Verdad with very familiar voices, my old colleagues at Radio Nederland, Jaime Báguena y Alfonso Montealegre talking about the history of Philips Electronix, and them Marconi. Maybe from an old `Radio Enlace`, contained in a current DX program. Which has yet to appear on the RV program sked:

Showing at 0200-0230 GMT Sábado - meaning UT Sunday, ``Club de la Amistad y Filatélico``. This page is © 2009, and would not be surprised if never updated since. Now it`s `Antena DX` from Panamá:

``Radio Verdad 4055 SW en Guatemala - Los sábados a las 8:00 PM hora de Guatemala, Domingos 02:00 UTC www.radioverdad.org`` according to:
which is also on WRMI and WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.56, Nov 19 at 0242, pirate music, very poor. These for 6950.5 say it was Captain Morgan Shortwave until 0303*:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6770, Nov 19 at 0241, very poor Old Time Radio pirate. Usually it`s a JBA carrier at best, but sometimes can sound like OTR, with audience applause, laughter; from some secret radio museum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 3270.3v, Nov 19 at 0232, the NRD-545 has one of numerous weak birdies, distinct from real carriers since they are always very slowly varying up or down, sometimes crossing/QRMing real DX. I had started calling these NRDies, but they are really caused by the Wellbrook antenna, since they disappear if I switch to the longwire (even tho the WB is still active and connected to the radio). My apology for misblaming JRC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. Just heard from James Branum about `Broad Spectrum Radio` scheduling: for now it is monthly and the next set will be December 10-16 at the same times as in November (tho there could be some repeats Mon 07-08 on WRMI 5850, 7730) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850, Nov 19 at 0235, tuning across WRMIBS, The OvermoleStair`s current idée fixe is needing 45 kilobux by next Tuesday to pay for uplinx to 4 satellites from Israel; ``I don`t like to ask for money at all`` --- coulda fooled me. GWBD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1904 monitoring: barely audible but confirmed at 0212 Nov 19, the 0200 UT Sunday on WRMI 11580 --- as usually now the case this long after dark in Okee. All programs on this frequency could benefit by being moved to a lower band after sunset for duration of winter. Also confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, good S9+20, UT Sunday November 19 at 0421, 11 minutes into show, so started circa 0410. Next:
Sun 1130   HLR  9485-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0400v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE [or #1905?]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5985, UT Sunday Nov 19 at 0238, WRMI with AWR `Wavescan` about KDKA, so yet another time for the program which is *not* on their schedule, instead 0230-0300 on 5985 is blank except for `Wlkng Power` UT Mondays. Are there somethings Tue-Sat too during this semi-hour? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re: my 1510 log Nov 18 afternoon, Greg Hardison replies:
``Glenn: -- That Texas Superfoods spot is playing nationwide; we hear plenty of it out here with the Dallas QTH. The only Rush-head I know for sure on 1510 is WLAC. D'ya think.......? 73z -- GREG HARDISON``

Hi Greg, WLAC did cross my mind, and Rush is sked there on Saturday afternoons, but he is also on KNNS per NRC AM Log and their website, tho no program sked. I would really expect to hear KNNS at edge of groundwave around here. There was QRM, and Childress could make it too, but maybe all the items I cited were from KNNS. 73, (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7470, Nov 19 at 0248, something here, VP S4 carrier; could it be anti-Christ pro-Yahweh pirate, Station YHWH? Cannot detect the dulcet tones of Josiah, but this was his last favorite frequency, not heard since Oct 14, and nothing else is scheduled here (except 22-24 UT, IBB Bod-Tibetan via Tajikistan) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WIA Monitoring Service


WIA News reports on the work of the WIA Monitoring Service and how reports of intruders in the amateur bands can be reported online 

In Australia we are very grateful for the great work, time and dedication of Peter Young VK3MV, in his position as the Co-ordinator of the WIA Monitoring Service.

Also, we are very grateful to the hard working volunteers, and in particularly John VK4TJ along with those other amateurs who submit reports on intruders into our bands. There have been significant incursions into our bands in recent times and we need to report these intrusions. 

Reports can be easily and quickly made by anyone using the Online Intruder Report Form at 
http://www.wia.org.au/members/protecting/intruderreport/

So, when you next hear a possible intruder, report the matter and help protect our bands.  There also is an urgent need for more volunteers to assist the service. Volunteers need not be licenced amateurs. Indeed shortwave enthusiasts are encouraged to make enquiries.

More information can be found on the WIA website or by emailing the co-ordinator Peter VK3MV   intruderswia.org.au

Panorama actual de la onda media en las Islas Canarias, actualizado a dia 18 de noviembre de 2017


Panorama actual de la onda media en las Islas Canarias, actualizado a dia 18 de noviembre de 2017.

Luego de pasar, una semana en la localidad de Playa Blanca, sur de Lanzarote, tuve la oportunidad de chequear, in situ, la situación de las distintas emisoras de onda media del archipiélago. Como novedad, la reactivación de COPE Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, que se encontraba inactiva, pudiendo comprobar que estaba emitiendo, si bien con una señal extremadamente débil, apenas inteligible, cuando la distancia entre Gran Canaria y Lanzarote es relativamente corta, entrando mucho más fuerte y perfectamente audible COPE Tenerife, con un SINPO 35443 mientras que Cope Gran Canaria lo hacía con 15441. Se pudo constatar como emitían en paralelo la programación nacional y regional y con programación distinta en las desconexiones de la programación local.

Radio Nacional de España, Radio 5 en Gran Canaria está emitiendo con su potencia habitual, y se recibe fuerte y claro en Lazarote. 

Esta es la relación de emisoras de onda media que se escuchan en Lanzarote durante el día:

576 kHz, Radio Nacional de España, Radio 1 en Gran Canaria, 0910, 14-11, 55555
621 kHz, Radio Nacional de España, Radio 1 en Tenerife, 0911, 14-11, 55555
711 kHz, Radio El Aaiun, Sahara, Marruecos, 0912, 14-11, 45444
720 kHz, Radio Nacional de España, Radio 5 en Tenerife, 0913, 14-11, 55555
747 kHz, Radio Nacional de España, Radio 5 en Gran Canaria, 0914, 14-11, 45444
837 kHz, COPE Gran Canaria, 0915, 14-11, 15441
882 kHz, COPE Tenerife, 0916, 14-11, 35443
936 kHz, Agadir, Marruecos, 0917, 14-11, 45444
1179 kHz, Radio Club Tenerife, SER, 0918, 14-11, 45444
1530 kHz, Posto Emissor do Funchal, Madeira, 0919, 14-11, 25432


Así que las dos emisoras que desaparecieron de la onda media en las Islas son Radio ECCA, que emitía desde Gran Canaria en 1269 kHz, y que fue dada de baja definitivamente ya hace unos cuatro años, y ES Radio Las Palmas, 1008 kHz, que a día de hoy no sabemos si volverá al aire.

Glenn Hauser logs November 18-19, 2017

** ARGENTINA [non]. 7730 // 5850, UT Sat Nov 18 at 0717 and later, WRMI is playing World Music fill, VG ME style at the moment, instead of RAE ATTW in English, which is supposed to air from UT Tue thru Sat during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Nov 18 at 1857, WRMI IS & ID loop, S9+10 to S8 (while 11580 WRMIBS is S9-S7). 1900 tune and YL opening Radio Biafra Broadcasting from London, shortly the 3-frequency schedule lacking 9580 which the OM sometimes mentions for this transmission. I check 9580 too and only a JJBA carrier; no more time to listen today. I`m surprised that apparently no one in Europe has checked for RBBFL on 9580, or whatever may really be occupying it at this hour.

Richard Langley, NB, says: ``Looking at the WRMI transmitter/antenna-field-layout, transmitter #7 and transmitter #10 can connect to the 87° Africa beam double rumboid [sic]. So, one of these combinations is likely being used. And I guess it's supplying a decent signal off the back lobe for stateside listeners to hear it. Although they claim they are broadcasting from London, the text message number they give is a Nigerian one: 234 810 617 7870.``

And Wolfgang Büschel, Nov 18: ``Re 11530 kHz RMI Okeechobee TX#4 relay, old fashioned horizontal rhombic antenna in use, 'small 87 degrees azimuth' angle though, JBA on threshold in western Europe, only S=2 or -108dBm in the poor. S=4 -98dBm JBA threshold at best in Grenoble France unit. S=5 tiny poor signal in remote Detroit MI.

RMI Florida horizontal rhombic masts visible at
G.C. 27°27'19.41"N 80°55'40.44"W
in Google Maps visible see

In western Europe 7240 kHz was S=9+10 in Liverpool, S=9+15dB in Belgium, Bavaria Germany, Grenoble France. S=8 signal at best in NJ-US east coast, but poor at S=6 in Detroit Michigan SDR unit`` 
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Nov 18 at 2157, RHC is in Arabic! // weaker 15370. 11760 is not supposed to resume until 2200 in Spanish. More slipshod operations by RadioCuba, where something is always wrong. 

BTW, the B-17 RHC schedules all show the languages to ``Western Europe`` (including Arabic!) are on a 10-degree azimuth, which is pretty far off: over Greenland, Svalbard, Novaya Zemlya and across mainland Russia east of the Urals, i.e. ASIA! So far east, that beyond most of Kazakhstan, right across Tibet, into Bangladesh. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Of course, maybe excuse that these beams are broad? They should hope so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 11800, Nov 18 at 2203, beautiful gospel quartet harmony in unknown language, but 2205 YL talk is in Indonesian, altho mentions Malaysia; fair averaging S9. KSDA is scheduled this hour, but also RRI Tsiganeshti in Spanish --- no sign of it; otherwise could produce quite a collision here. Is RRI still on 11800? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** IRAN [non]. 7584.939, Nov 18 at 0706, off-frequency modern ME music really stix out, YL announcement but cut off at 0710*, shortly carrier back on and off again for a split second. 

*0711 back stronger on correct frequency 7585.000, Farsi talk and rock music, 0716 Farda IDs in passing. Yes, it`s R. Farda, scheduled 0400-0830, 250 kW, 58 degrees from KUWAIT (following 0230-0400 via Thailand). As usual, no jamming audible vs this clandestine service; why doesn`t Iran bother to do that? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 7490, UT Sat Nov 18 at 0438, I check the webcast of this WBCQ, and hear: Brother HyStairical! This is the hour originally publicized for Broad Spectrum Radio, later removed from their website for ``TBA``. It`s also the hour still showing on the WBCQ sked for `Financial Survival` coin-pushers UT Tue-Sat, so is that totally gone from this WBCQ timing??

If awake, one should also check for BSR, Monday 07-08 UT on WRMI 5850 & 7730, when I axually encountered it without warning last Monday Nov 13, and that was subsequently added to the WRMI skedgrid, but removed from the BSR website for TBA, the last time I checked. 

NO, it`s back at
http://broadspectrumradio.com/2017/11/10/bsr-international-radio-magazine-show-november-2017/
but refers to dates Nov 11-18 only. And I no longer see a page saying all their SW broadcast times are TBA. So we can only wonder what`s really going on with this program and its scheduling (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1904 monitoring: NOT confirmed UT Saturday November 18 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB: no signal, but this time other USA 9`s are JBA carriers: 9265, 9370, 9395 in degraded propagation. 

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR 6190-CUSB, Nov 18:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/11/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr_18.html
0731-0800 on  6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, weak``

Almost confirmed, HLR 7265-CUSB via UTwente SDR: Sat Nov 18 from 1526 during MN+, only CRI East Turkistan with south Asian songs, also during several chex in next semihour; during CRI pause at 1558, trace of modulation sounding like me; from 1600 much stronger CRI Russian. Alan Gale usually confirms this WOR at his more favorable further skip distance from Göhren in England. 

I am still not sure 9330 is on the air at all, but will continue to check it until confirmed off. Propagation should not be a factor for the earlier 2230 WOR broadcast on Saturday only. (However, the online program sked still shows 2330, probably outdated info.)

So Sat Nov 18 at 2228, I am trying very hard to hear 9330v-CUSB, on three different radios with four different antennas: Maybe there is The Planet ID & IS, which should be playing first, or am I imagining it? I do find a JJBA carrier about 9328.185, but by 2236 cannot recognize the trace of modulation as WOR theme or me. (7490 and 3265 are not on, but 5130- is: see separate report about EMR.) Missed checking WRMI 11580 at 2300. Next:
Sun 0200   WRMI 11580 to NE
Sun 0410v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130   HLR  9485-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE [or 1905?]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.82-AM, Sat Nov 18 at 2236, WBCQ is on here with weak signal, rock music, brief British-accented DJ, more music; next break at 2246 he does ID as European Music Radio, reference http://www.europeanmusicradio.com 
So Tom Taylor is still on air, altho he sent this notice November 6:

``Dear EMR Listeners, Due to my Cancer condition (non-Hodgkin Lymphoma) that was diagnosed in February 2017, I regret to tell you that EMR will be off air until further notice. I hope to return EMR to the air at some Point in 2018. All the best from Tom Taylor. PS. More Pages to our Website will be added over the next few Months while EMR is off air!
-- 
website: http://www.europeanmusicradio.com
email:   emrshortwave@gmail.com
European Music Radio``

We wish Tom the best! His WBCQ transmission had been on the third Saturdays at 2130, publicized as October 21 on 7490. But there has been no publicity about moving to 5130, one hour later as of November. 

(7490 is not on yet as I am checking all WBCQ frequencies while WOR is missing from 9330. At 0025 recheck Nov 19, I measure 5129.84; and 7489.964)

Tom`s website now advises, ``EMR will be off air until Further Notice. 
More Information is on our Contact Page!`` Which has the same wording as above. And also, ``The Coolest Music on Shortwave in Europe and North America --- 6070 via Channel 292 - 9485 via MV Baltic R & 7490 via WBCQ``. So maybe the next surprise appearance will be Dec 16 at 2230 on one frequency or another (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also OKLAHOMA [non]

** U S A. 11580, Nov 18 at 2158 I happen to be on 11580 WRMI with fill music, but cuts off the air at 2158:40*, back on at *2159:50, and 2200 into RAE Italian relay even tho it`s not a weekday. Not much difference in signal before and after the break, but unseems non-deliberate, as if making an antenna and/or transmitter change altho none is scheduled, rather 24/7, XMTR 9 at 44 degrees. 

The program grid below the frequency grid at http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs has a blank space for this hour on Saturdays, i.e. a line separating it from M-F RAE Italian. Previous hour in RAE German is allegedly really M-F only, with Slovakia & Walking in Power on both Sat & Sun at 21-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also ARGENTINA [non]; OKLAHOMA [non]

** U S A. 1510, Nov 18 at 1955 UT, in a quick bandscan on a little daytrip west of Enid, north of Lahoma, nothing much of interest, but two stations mixing here. Rush repeat is ending second hour, 1958 UT ad for TexasSuperfoods.com with an 877- number, mentions Dallas. Website is not very helpful, just linx to products, not stores. Further web searching finds they are looking for ``home business``, ``independent sales representatives``. The closest Texan on 1510 is KCTX Childress TX, 250 watts D1, listed in NRC AM Log as NOS/REL format. One with a Dallas address, but really east of The Metroplex in Canton, is KWJB, 500 watts D4, classic rock.

Also at 1958 UT an ad for window installers, sanctioned by some Kansas authority; 1959 UT ``Candid Auction Moment`` (?), address at 340 S. Broadway in some town. Partial legal ID then for ``The Victory``, KFMR? FM, and 2000 UT Fox ``news``. This is certainly KNNS, 1000 watts D1 in Larned KS, and the FM per NRC Log is KRMR 105.7 ``The Patriot``. WTFDA FM Database agrees on the slogan, but it`s really in Hays and shows no connexion with KNNS or any AM station. KNNS is a talker, Fox-affiliated, and must be the one with Rush (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 9660, Nov 18 at 2102, S9-S7 news about the Prémio Ratzinger, so got to be Vatican Radio; in Portuguese but Brazuguese accent. It`s 100 kW, 234 degrees direct from SMG CVA at 2100-2130 daily, per Aoki. I thought this good signal might be a relay back from Madagascar. 

CIRAF target is only 46W, where the only Portuguese-speaking ex-colony is Guinea-Bissau, but this bearing carries right on to Brasil, where chances are they have a lot more listeners, as Brasil`s population is 112 X that of G-B (but the relative proportions of Catholix with SW radios is up for conjexure). Since the Brasilians have to put up with Luso accents on several SW stations which no longer broadcast to them but to Africa, it`s only fair that the Bissauans have to put up with Brazilian accents (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

#322 Issued Saturday November 18, 2017 at 1430 UTC

Important Solar, Space & Geomagnetic Weather Indices-

The daily solar flux numbers (DSFN) were 75.6 76.4 74.6.

The daily sunspot number (DSSN) was 26.

The 24 hour period 3 hour interval planetary K index (Kp) had been at an unsettled to quiet geomagnetic condition of
1 2 2 3 2 0 0 1.

Global Daily HF Radio Wave Propagation Forecast-

HF radio wave propagation condition trend- improving

Northern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- very good at night and poor to fair at day,

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- very good at night and fair at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- very poor at night and good at day,

21000-21850 kHz- very poor at night and fair to good at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- very poor at night and fair at day,

28000-29700 kHz- very poor at night and poor at day.

Excellent- S9+10 or >
Very Good- S9 +1-9
Good- S8-9
Fair- S4-7
Poor- S1-3
Very Poor- S0

During the northern hemisphere winter season the higher HF bands of 10-20 meters (11-19 meters) close sooner due to less sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is higher than in the southern hemisphere as the F layer of the ionosphere is lower in height and more dense.

Southern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300- fair at night and poor at day,

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- fair at night and fair at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168, kHz-

fair at night and poor to fair at day,

21000-21850 kHz- poor at night and fair at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- poor at night and poor at day,

28000-29700 kHz- very poor at night and poor at day.

Excellent- S9+10 or >
Very Good- S9 +1-9
Good- S8-9
Fair- S4-7
Poor- S1-3
Very Poor- S0

Keep in mind that almost daily during the southern hemisphere summer season you will find that the 10 (11) meter bands will open via short north-south and east-west propagation paths via sporadic E (Es). Also when multiple sporadic E (Es) clouds form and line up favorably much longer propagation paths open up on east-west paths. And last but not least north-south propagation paths occur across the equator via trans equatorial propagation (TEP).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This HF Radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the SIGINT_CAP HF radio wave propagation prediction software. I wrote it beginning in the late 1980’s but I’m sorry to say that it can’t be distributed to the general public.

And though this HF radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the SIGINT_CAP, I do check the actual band conditions at my location in the USA and tweak the forecast manually where and when necessary. I also check global HF radio wave propagation conditions via remoted radio receivers around on every continent of the globe and tweak the forecast manually if and when necessary.

The hamateur radio JT65A mode RF signal levels received are based on 5 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio PSK31 mode RF signal levels received are based on 25 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio CW mode RF signal levels received are based on 50 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio SSB RF mode signal levels received are based on 100 watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The HF shortwave broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on 100,000 watts (100 kw) and a typical high gain VOA type curtain array antenna.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable and applicable by the average radio enthusiast.

Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are most evenly balanced
during the fall and spring equinoxes and most diametrically opposed during
the summer and winter solstices.

Conditions change daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and by decade, as the
sun rises and sets at different times and at different angles from the
ecliptic, as well as by radio wave frequency. This is due to changes in the
maximum usable frequency (MUF), lowest usable frequency (LUF) and F layer
critical frequency (FoF2).

The D and E layers also come into play through RF radio wave signal
absorption and refraction. And then there is sporadic E (Es) radio wave
propagation that can really throw a wrench into the gears so to speak.

Things like sporadic E (Es) radio wave propagation and lightning storm
static can impact HF radio wave propagation in an unpredictable manner and
mostly bad.

Ongoing solar, space and geomagnetic weather goings on also impact HF radio
wave propagation conditions in a negative manner.

Thirteen days of zero sunspots ended on Tuesday, with sunspot numbers
of 14, 14, and 15 on Tuesday through Thursday.

In this week's bulletin average daily sunspot numbers increased from
0 to 4, while average daily solar flux decreased slightly from 70.8
to 70.3. Average planetary A index decreased from 15.6 to 12.3, and
average mid-latitude A index declined from 12.4 to 8.6.

Predicted solar flux is 74 on November 17-24, 75 on November 25-27,
then 73, 72 and 71 on November 28-30, 70 on December 1-2, 69 on
December 3-4, 68 on December 5-7, 69 on December 8-9, 70 on December

December 20, 5 on December 21-25, 8 and 10 on December 26-27, 5 on
December 28-30 and on December 31 it jumps to 35, indicating
disturbed conditions.

Geomagnetic activity forecast for the period November 17 to December
13, 2017 from F.K. Janda, OK1HH of the Czech Propagation Interested
Group compiling this geomagnetic activity weekly forecast since
1978.

"Geomagnetic field will be:
Quiet on November 24-28, December 2, 9
Mostly quiet on November 19, 23, 29, December 8
Quiet to unsettled on November 18, December 1, 3, 11-12
Quiet to active on November 17, 30, December 4, 7, 12-13
Active to disturbed on November 20-22, December 5-6

"Amplifications of the solar wind from coronal holes are expected on
November (17-19,), 20-24, (29-30,) and on December (1-5,) 5-7, 9-12.

"Remarks:
- Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement.
- Current forecasts still remains less reliable"

ARRL SSB Sweepstakes contest is this weekend. Rules can be found at

Out of Japan, this study confirms that during sunspot cycle
minimums, solar activity is consistent from cycle to cycle, but not
at solar cycle peaks:


Bruce Smith, AC4G in Taft, Tennessee wrote on November 9:

"In April 2013, I was so excited to hear and make a QSO with VK9CZ,
Cocos-Keeling on 80m CW as reported in the ARRL Propagation Report.
The VK9CZ signal appeared all of a sudden out of nowhere with 579
signals at my sunset 2343Z via long path. Other stateside operators
made the QSO including N4II who studied the technical aspects
(science) and wrote a few articles on the path of the VK9CZ signal
at gray line for April 2013.

"Recently, in Nov 2017, 4 years and 7 months later, VK9CZ put on
another DXpedition to Cocos-Keeling. To my surprise, I heard their
signals once again pop out of nowhere on 80 CW at my sunset (from
2235Z until 2325Z) early-November renewing my excitement. The
signals long path (SE Beverage antenna) were surpassing 599.

"I could not pass another chance to say hello this year by giving
the op on that side a 599 signal report. His sigs peaked via long
path at 10 dB over S9 at my Taft, TN QTH this year Nov 2017. Perhaps
Fall long path sigs are better than April sigs? There were several
stateside hams who made the 1 Nov logs on 80m. The online log only
showed about 36 QSOs in NA who had made the logs according to the
Clublog statistics that I was monitoring on 1 Nov. On 5 Nov, I could
barely hear the VK9CZ signals long path via SE Beverage antenna.
Since then, a few other lucky operators logged an 80m QSO via LP
with VK9CZ for a total of 71 80m QSOs as late as 6 Nov. 6 Nov was
one of their last operating periods closing out their operation with
another long path opening. The VK9CZ signals peaked via LP about 539
on this day in Taft, TN. All other days not described above, there
were no apparent signals being received at my location in southern
Tennessee on 80m.

"My observations revealed one great long path opening at my sunset
and one mediocre opening, while the other long path openings were
nil to barely readable.  As it was in 2013, both VK9CZ and my QTH
were in sunlight for both QSOs taking advantage of another sunrise
enhancement.

"I also monitored 160m on days no sigs were heard on 80m, but not a
whisper from the VK9CZ 160m signals at my sunset on many days
monitored or when 160m cluster spots indicated VK9CZ operations on
160m.

"By the time the readers read this, the DXpedition will have ended.
Hopefully, the next few years may bring other surprises on 80m/160m
for us all renewing the DX Spirit for all low band operators.

"73, Bruce/AC4G/Taft, TN/EM65"

The earlier QSO that Bruce referred to was covered in the April 12,
2013 issue of Propagation Forecast Bulletin ARLP015.
