Glenn Hauser logs March 31-April 1, 2020

** CANADA. 362-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0609 UT, dash and SB, 500 watt NDB at Greater SudBury, Ontario.

326-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0616 UT, dash and YQK, 200 watt NDB at Kenora, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 711 kHz, April 1 at 0033, off-frequency carrier from presumed R. Rebelde still hetting 710 stations; also again with a beat upon it of approx. 200/minute = 3.33 Hz, which I have been assuming is from something in Eurafrica as TA carriers are just starting to fade in before 0053 UT sunset here, only 891 and 936 at first, presumed Algeria and Morocco. However if one Cuban can be off-frequency, so can another. Is the beat still there much later at night after TA fadeout time, before sunrise, and before anything from DU? 1 kHz het could be a deliberate jamming tactic to be even more off-putting than co-channel to ``wacky`` WAQI; but also annoying to Rebelde`s own audience, but with plenty of alternatives (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13740, March 31 at 1337, RHC back here after having changed to 13780 since March 12; why? It`s S9+20 and // 13700 also strong. Something`s always wrong at RHC. This puts an end to the weak leapfrogs I had heard between 13700 and 13780 on 13620 and 13860 --- so now are there any 40 kHz apart? A JBA carrier on 13660 could be, but none on 13780. At 1449, 13660 is still there but 13740 is off, so 13660 is something else:

A-20 HFCC shows something from UAE in Dari before 1400 on 13660; BBC Somali, does it still exist? before 1500 via Uzbekistan on 13660 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 31 at 1443, CRI Plus relay is S9+10 but very undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7335 & 7365, April 1 at 0008, finally there is some jamming audible against Radio Martí`s latest A-20 frequencies, but RM is atop. There is also still jamming against vacant RM frequencies 7435 and 7355; not to be confused with RM providing its own ``jamming`` in the form of DRM noise 7340-7345-7350 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, March 31 at 0604, VON is on at S9+10/20 but JBM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0611 UT, RG, allegedly 400 watt NDB at Will Rogers World Airport, OKC; I am axually tuned to 348-USB, and hearing it here instead of on 350, and despite 349 GW in Mississippi betwixt. Several day and night chex for RG lately on 350 have been fruitless; erratic? With air travel drastically curtailed, more and more beacons may be turned off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 15770, Mar 31 at 1334, JBA carrier from WRMI as usual, totally off the side to the NW of this NE beam; sometimes by afternoon it is nevertheless sufficient. This is the Tue 1300 hour for a new `Encore` classical music test, but will it continue? Brice reports good reports flooding in from Europe. Yes: it`s already added to the WRMI skedgrid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 31 at 2201, third day of A-20, VOT finally manages to get this transmission on air, English to North America east, but VP on the PL-880 with clip on wire; by 2220 on the NRD-545 it`s only poor S6-S8; no RTTY QRM anyway, I assume like ex-5960 at 2300 it will be hit or miss (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 7275, April 1 at *0259, TRT carrier cuts on with IS and English ID, VG via UTwente SDR, 5 + 1 timesignal; and sign on with full English schedule. I copy it in detail, and sure enough there are errors, which if typical, will last every day for the next 7 months of A-20!! Something`s always awry at Ankara. In order cited:

``1830 on 9785 to Europe
2030 on 9620 to S Asia, Australia
2200 on 9830 to Europe and eastern USA, Canada
1930 on 15520 to Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Uzbekistan, etc.
0300 on 9515 to Europe and eastern USA, Canada
0600 on 6165 to ME, Arabian peninsula
Please note that the 23-00 and 04-05 broadcasts are pre-recorded``

Then into the Tuesday March 31 news, presumably recorded not later than 2030, starring with what else? The COVID-19 toll.

Now all the errors; compared to their HFCC schedule at:
http://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A20&broadc=TRT

The first broadcast of the day is totally omitted, 1230 on 15450!
1930 on 15520 is really at 1630 UT!
1830 is really on 5945, not 9785!
2030 is really on 9875, not 9620!
2200 on 9830 is correct --- when on; how did that happen??
0300 is really on 7275 as I am hearing it, not 9515 as first planned!
0600 on 6165 is really at 0300 UT!

Duh, the 23-24 & 04-05 pre-recorded times are now at 22-23 & 03-04 as just mentioned (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 349-MCW kHz, March 31 at 0610 UT, GW, 25-watt NDB at Greenwood, Mississippi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Survey of what`s really on WRMI frequencies, UT April 1; much of this at variance with partially updated A-20 skeds at  http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs

0026:
9395 // 5950, `Jazz From the Left with Raoul` program ID and more jazz; still at 0057 wrapping up with PayPal request.
5850, similar but not // jazz I at first think is same out of synch; but at 0057 it`s Slovakia interviewing homeschool kid in English.
5800, SMTV, she got some award for something, bow-bow-bow

0100:
9395 // 5950, RAE opening multilingual hour in Spanish instead of English, explaining COVID-19 quarantine situation disrupting programming, but that transmissions via WRMI will stay as before; about relaying LRA-1 870, Radio Nacional (but we don`t really hear it, yet?), and that`s also being carried by other RN networx. There will be some programas ``atemporales`` = evergreens. 0107 music break, 0108 into Italian no doubt with similar explanation; and six? more languages to follow?

5800, SMTV still past 0110+; used to stop here at 0100
7780, music, oldies? BB ID for QSL requests at 0110
9455, Brother Scare, instead of Hal Turner
5850, ME music, World?
5010, Spanish, poor with LAH; ``adiós hasta la próxima semana``, and R. Taiwán Intl s/off at 0128

0130:
9395 // 5950, music breaks and more RAE, Brazuguese
9455, Brother Scare instead of Hal Turner (but he is still on WBCQ 7490.08v, at 0136 discussing Yahweh with a caller)
5850, music, still World? // JBA 7780
5010, Prague in English
7730, La Rosa de Tokio, about UN Radio
9955, gospel huxter in English, jamming
0200: [as monitored via Alexandria VA KiwiSDR; above were direct]
9955, Spanish presumed Praga
9455, Brother Scare
9395 // 5950, Oldies
7780 // 5850, African music, World?
7730, song from somewhere; weak
7570, SMTV platitudes about EU
5800, off
5010, Spanish, sounds like RTI again

0230:
5010, Taiwan in Spanish again just closed, 2 or 3 notes of
``Sandunga`` and carrier off. Now on updated System H sked at 0100 on
5010, 0200 on 5010 & 5800, 2200 on 7780 = unconfirmed
5800, still off
5850 // much weaker 9395, Slovakia in English
5950, VP talk, probably SMTV
7570 // much weaker 7730, Brother Scare
7780, Ukraine in English
9455, Oldies
9955, Slovakia in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15745-15750-15755, March 31 at 1334, no signal from WINB DRM noise where A-20 scheduled M-F at 11-17 UT; is off or not propagating, daring MUF, 2+ MHz higher than ex-13685-13690-13695?

15770 WRMI & 15825 WWCR are the usual JBA carriers; still no WINB at 1450, when 15034-USB CHR Ontario nearby is poorly propagating. I remember to rerecheck 15750 at 1659, just in time to hear WINB hybrid signal weakly, off at 1700* sharp (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, March 31 at 2224, gospel huxter quite readable at S7-S8, as WJHR is getting a sporadic-E boost. DX Map confirms lots of Es over eastern US up to 52-60 MHz MUFs, altho no blob exactly between us. Its incredibly more powerful neighbor 15610 WEWN manages only S4-S5, hardly better than normal for it. I had noticed signs of 15555-USB earlier in the day, and BTW its nominal schedule ends at 2200* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Wed April 1 at 0109, WTWW-2 is off, so no hamshow from Ted; but 5130 WBCQ is on for its W5KUB ham show, caller from Wyoming about gardening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Spain's national amateur radio society URE has talked to their regulator and obtained permission for unlicensed people to use amateur stations during the Coronavirus lockdown

A Google translation of part of the URE announcement says:

After the publication of Royal Decree 463/2020, of March 14, declaring the state of alarm for the management of the situation of health crisis caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), for this purpose, and with the In order to accompany radio amateurs in the exceptional situation caused by the spread of COVID-19, the URE, in its commitment to collaborate and help to cope with the complicated situation we are currently experiencing in our country, presented to the Secretary of State for Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructures a request for special authorization.

Today, the Secretary of State for Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructures has issued a resolution granting temporary authorization for the use, under certain conditions, of radio amateur stations by people who do not have the required administrative authorization under the supervision of authorized radio amateurs. , while the validity of the state of alarm and its corresponding mandatory measures of confinement.

That the use of the aforementioned radio amateur stations will be carried out under the responsibility and direct and face-to-face supervision of the radio amateur and under the conditions established in the Regulations for the use of the radioelectric public domain by radio amateurs.

Glenn Hauser logs March 30-31, 2020

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, March 30 at 2130, WRMI, expecting to hear Italian hour from RAE, but instead it`s in Brazuguese! talking about this being a special program, due to COVID-19 quarantine; RAE relaying Radio Nacional domestic; no new programs now via WSMI [sic!], but replays of old shows, and these announcements in the 8 languages; see website for news. 2139 a bit of tango and into same info in German. Probably would have heard the other six during the whole hour.

Then I see a report from Ivo Ivanov that today at 1300-1330 on 15770, RAE relay was in Spanish/Italian/French/Chinese.

7780, March 30 at 2352 I check the RAE `French` semihour via WRMI, and hear English, music, 2353 into Chinese.

5800, March 31 at 0241, this WRMI is still on with music, RAE French announcer from home with same info, part of 8-language rotation. 5010 is off and no //s on 5, 7 or 9 MHz bands. 5800 retuned at 0249, has gone off in meantime at odd hour. (No full survey of WRMIs this evening) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6125, 7355, 7435, March 31 at 0227, the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command with wall-of-noise jamming on all three against nothing, since in A-20, Radio Martí this hour is now on 5980, 7335 and 7365 all with NO jamming! Also 6030 with jamming as usual but unusually atop it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, March 30 at 2059 tune-in, good signal with ME song but cut off at 2100*. It`s Denge Welat, best heard here in a long time; must tune in earlier. Ivo Ivanov also reports today:

``BRB Denge Welat via Grigoriopol/Issoudun March 30
0600-1600 on 11530 KCH 300 kW / 130 deg to WeAs Kurdish, weak+TRT*
1600-2100 on 11530 ISS 250 kW / 090 deg to WeAs Kurdish, very good
* co-ch same 11530 EMR 500 kW / 105 deg to WeAs Turkish R. Erdogan!``
No TRT jamming heard before or after 2100 here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, March 31 at 0211, there he is, anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH with usual screed, thin modulation, but mostly readable S8-S9; weaker but still on past 0302. Walt Salmaniw was hearing him better than ever in BC; while Richard Langley heard him not at all in NB. This time I beat Rick Barton to YHWH; he in AZ tuned in at 0315.

Walt continues: ``Unlike most other evenings heard, YHWH has remained at good/very good level for the last hour I've monitored, with only occasional fades. Continues at 0335 with, "Christianity, the greatest hoax". An old program heard many times in the past. Josiah promises to come back after this hour canned program. 7475 went off at 0402:47 UT with his brief time check (9:04, but actually was only 9:02 PM Pacific Time). Can anyone make out his last name? Josiah ??? He mentions it, but with the tinny audio, it's difficult to hear. 73,  Walt`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Correxion to one virtual channel cited, 52-1 MyNetwork, not 51-2, fixed:

RF 23, March 30 circa 1525 UT, underpowered KSBI OKC is decoding thru one of my antennas with a little tropo help, viz.: 52-1 KSBI-DT, 52-2 BOUNCE, 52-3 LAFF, 52-4 GRIT, 52-5 MYSTERY, each PSIP all-caps. This matches rabbitears.info with 52-1 as MyNetwork, but not a.k.a. nickname ``News 9 Plus`` --- that`s only on RF 25, KWTV 9-2. 52-1 takes CBS programming sometimes when bumped off KWTV 9-1, especially tornado season and now CV to boot (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, March 30 at 2323, REE is VG S9+30/40 in Spanish; if M/W/F English were to resume it would be at 2200. 9690 was reported absent yesterday; anyhow it`s all RNE1 domestic relay now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 30 at 2200+, nothing from VOT English as A-20 scheduled to N America; just RTTY de NAU PR; nor at 2227. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.

7275, March 31 at 0256, carrier cuts on and off and on at least thrice; 0259 IS & ID JBA in English, VP around S7 but no QRhaM as they are perfectly entitled to impose. Don`t TRT know that in the Americas, this is a hamband? Did no one at HFCC clue them in? Timesignal at 0300 is accurate with WWV, not late! Usual VOT sign-on to W N America with schedule including 9785, 9830 for earlier airings, but can`t copy it completely to detect any errors to be prolonged for the next 7 months. // 6165 to Asia is a JBA carrier. An earlier tentative version of HFCC A-20 had this on 9515 like last year, thus our expectation, rather than down to 7275 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 9795, March 30 at 2158-2200+, no signal, nor at 2227-2230+, unlike yesterday with something SE Asian(?). Sometime after 2300 however, when my inkpen failed, 9795 does contain something like that, presumed FEBC Philippines. Maybe they start an hour earlier on Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST UPDATE MARCH 30

Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update.
https://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) Updated UTC offsets under Croatia, Germany, Greece, Romania
2) Japan - R Japan: Added second link for archived/on-demand shows

The next update will be 5 April to reflect change to UTC offset due to DST change in New Zealand. Best wishes and 73, Alan Roe

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.97-CUSB, March 30 at 1531, RNASG, LRA36 on again with a special, tnx tip from Manuel Méndez. Of three Brazilian KiwiSDRs, Pardinho is maxed out as too often the case: the best one has been getting too much publicity; wish they could increase its capacity. JBA via the one near Rio; better at Campo, so I stick on there for some Spanish mostly too weak to copy but ID in passing at 1538; 1545 brief feedback loop in talk, then music; 1553 full ID; 1602 this SDR times out after 30 minutes but may be restarted; Signal gone sometime between 1615 and 1620 tho did not hear a sign-off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 6010, March 30 at 1530, good signal with song in Brazuguese, on the Rio KiwiSDR still tuned here from my last Colombia check; so R. Inconfidência is certainly active from BH, at least now in the daytime; on my way to ANTARCTICA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Re my two logs of VY2ZM, PEI on 1845-LSB and 1838-LSB:

``Hi Glenn, I just wanted to comment on this. WPX is the Worked Prefixes contest, one of the big ones where they activate rarer call letters for different countries. During contests, which go on for many hours, the phone operators would lose their voices if they had to keep calling CQ. So they have it pre-recorded. It often sounds much different than their voice when they speak to stations which comes back to the CQ. Contests are only allowed on the older bands 160 to 10, not the newer ones like 17. All the best from Ireland, and keep up the good work. Regards, Patrick Fitzpatrick``

I was also going to enquire why bother with a VY- call instead of VE- (or VA-). Not to deny anyone their fun, but this PX tactic seems totally artificial; still from the same common place, PEI in this case; administrations complicit in the game (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 11880, March 30 at 1505, CRI Plus relay via CUBA is now here for A-20, ex-15700 at 14-16; S9+20 and undermodulated but sufficient today. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, March 30 at 1509, S9-S5 of song, good ME music; in HFCC parlance it`s USAGM in Fas via WOF, i.e. Radio Farda in Persian via Woofferton UK at 13-18; also 11-13 via LAMpertheim, Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9100, March 30 at 1517, JBA carrier, no doubt Echo of Hope; Ron Howard and I agree it was on 9095 yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 23, March 30 circa 1525 UT, underpowered KSBI OKC is decoding thru one of my antennas with a little tropo help, viz.: 52-1 KSBI-DT, 52-2 BOUNCE, 52-3 LAFF, 52-4 GRIT, 52-5 MYSTERY, each PSIP all-caps. This matches rabbitears.info with 51-2 as MyNetwork, but not a.k.a. nickname ``News 9 Plus`` --- that`s only on RF 25, KWTV 9-2. 52-1 takes CBS programming sometimes when bumped off KWTV 9-1, especially tornado season and now CV to boot (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND [and non]. 9585, March 30 at 1523, fast SAH between two equal signals colliding, one in Chinese? HFCC shows TWR in Malgache/French until 1525 and CRI Japanese from Xi`an during whole hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, UT Mon Mar 30 at 0129, tune-in WRMI just in time to hear Spanish closing of RTI yet again, another week of tests at 0100 --- or is this now permanent? Then at 0130.5 into R. Prague // 9395, replacing WOR which aired on both exactly one week ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 9830, March 29 at 2200, NO signal from VOT English to N America on the first day of A-20, but no NAU RTTY either, just my internal birdie. 2222 checking via UTwente, nothing there either, nor on ex-5960 which was starting at 2300. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler --- sporadic operation then and now (long before any CV excuse).

9515, March 30 at 0337, trying again for VOT English to W North America on new A-20 schedule from 0300. Oops, latest HFCC shows NOT sked on 9515 like A-19, but on 7275 not only for Europe but North America, invading our 40m hamband! and 7275 was heard the night before by Jon Collins in UK. That I must check; the // for Asia now 6165 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2027 monitoring: reconfirmed gone from Sunday March 29 airing at 2130 on WRMI 7780, rather something musical on poor signal. Attrition of 7780 airings in the 21 UT hour to zero means the remaining ones are all in the middle of the night in European target, altho good in the evening for NE America, SE Canada on the way.

7780, UT Mon Mar 30 at 0130, confirmed on WRMI, fair --- but NOT on 5800 like last week, nor 9395 which had been // before then. Both of those are now carrying R. Prague International, in English, Sunday Music Show. Permanent change, or confusion?

WRN via webcast and satellite, UT Mon Mar 30 at 0130, WOR 2027 confirmed here one UT hour earlier now that UK is on BST, even tho this service is for N America, which timeshifted two sesquiweeks ago.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 30 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 30 starting at 0303.5 on Area 51 webcast, after raucous laughter from Julie`s Wild Kingdom; fair S9+10 on WBCQ 5130 at 0313 check.

Also confirmed UT Mon Mar 30 at 0337 the 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair S9 and no jamming.

Also confirmed Mon Mar 30 from 1800.5 on IRRS 7290, VG via UTwente SDR, now shifted one UT hour earlier for summer time. Already on 7290 at 1757 with music fill, 1800 ID and one semi-minute of three FSN headlines. And now, NO ACI from either side, nor is any sked in HFCC. However there is some splash from 7280 Vietnam in Spanish, when musical. Finishes at 1829.5, more FSN for about 5 minutes, then the so-called `Shortwave Report` which if really 30 minutes (29?) long is going to get chopped off by 1900*

Next WORs:
0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490v), UT Mon March 30 circa 0010 check, WBCQ webcast is still encoring `Encore`, which supposedly ended a biweek ago. Heard an announcement for Schumann Fantaisie in C, something by Rameau which are not on this week`s playlist dated 28/3: https://www.tumbril.co.uk/playlists and apparently previous playlists are inaccessible. No complaints about keeping classical going! Encore is still on the WBCQ 7490 program schedule for UT Monday 00-01.

9455, March 30 after 0200, `Encore` on WRMI with a good signal via Rochester NY KiwiSDR.

BTW, Brice Avery says his day job is a hospital doctor, so he`s plenty busy. He says there will be another Encore broadcast this Tuesday March 31 at 1300 on WRMI 15770, which is NE toward Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13685-13690-13695, March 30 at 1425, DRM noise from WINB is gone for A20, not around 15115 either, but forgot the NF: 15745-15750-15755 at 11-17 M-F; the rest, per HFCC: 0830-1100 M-F on 9975-9980-9985; same frequency Sat & Sun 0700-1000 --- really on weekends too now?? 0700-0830 M-F 7310-7315-7320 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17774.991 approx., March 30 at 1501, KVOH propagating S4-S6 with jazz, nice for a change, but not for long: ID in English as on ``17.775``, into Spanish about CV-19 with some more jazz mentioned with accompaniment; unseems like `Frecuencia al Dia` as sked now on Monday & Friday. As always slightly off-frequency minus from old(?)) transmitter; also as compared to WWV/H carrier on 15000.000. I don`t see jazz explicitly on the Spanish program schedule, but there is a `Jazz Session` hour in English, at 1600 Saturdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17815, Mon Mar 30 at 1504, no signal from WHRI which could be on here daily now; heard yesterday so more likely Sundays, a Special Day for such adherents (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9795, March 29 at 2229, S9 tonal language, SE Asian? Rising intonation at end of phrases like Burmese, but unseems that. HFCC A-20 as of March 28 has a 9795 gap between 21 and 23: NHK Japanese before, FEBC Iba multilingual westward afterwards. My guess would be the latter, Philippines in some minolity language. No clues in expired B-19 skeds either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs March 29, 2020

** CANADA. 1838-LSB, March 29 at 0615 UT, ``CQ Contest`` over and over from VY2ZM --- same guy Jeff in Monticello PEI I heard last night on 1845-LSB, so New Frequency! And again, the *only* phone station audible on entire 160m. His CQs are all identical, so I am suspecting automated recordings. Is he sound asleep, also set up for automated QSOs if anyone ever answers? CW hams are commonly automated, obviously hand-keying being too much trouble at least for routine CQs, so why not phone? But where are all the other contesters, and what contest is it? Per https://www.contestcalendar.com/weeklycont.php ``CQ WW WPX Contest, SSB: 0000Z, Mar 28 to 2359Z, Mar 29`` which is multi-band, everyone else on 80, 40, 20, 15 or 10m --- never mind the so-called WARC additional in-between bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9200, March 29 at 1335, S2 JBM seems Chinese, like also on stronger CNR1 jammer 11785 tho not tried to match. Presumably CNR1 jammer against Sound of Hope. Not the same as the open carrier often heard here from the North American area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13780, March 29 at 1459, RHC still on here at S9+10 but JBM, while // 13700 is much weaker but fully modulated. No spurs heard. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, March 29 at 1330, Radio Martí loud & clear on revived A-20 channel, ex-13820 where wall-of-noise jamming continues from the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command, too stupid to figure out RM`s totally predictable and registered seasonal changes; but then Arnie forbids involvement with yanqui-run HFCC, so the jam frequency manager may not even be allowed to look at it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 13755, March 29 at 1459 open carrier, 1500 Chinese, poor with flutter. It`s CRI via Kashgar, land of brainwashing Uighurs, this hour only, 500 kW at 308 degrees for Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PHILIPPINES. 9320, March 29 at 1337, S9 ``Can`t Help Falling In Love With You`` by Elvis. Something new here, and I bet it`s VOA Korean which plays a lot from The American Songbook. Yes, soon announcement in Korean mentioning Elvis and Streisand. HFCC A-20 confirms it`s VOA KK via Tinang, 12-14 UT, 250 kW at 21 degrees, their beam toward Korea but also carrying right on USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 15450, March 29 at 1326, JBA carrier on the first day of A-20, as VOT English to Europe and USward is back here from 1230, ex starting at 1330 on 12035. Let`s hope this propagation improve into summer. Off at 1331 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2027 monitoring, Next:
2130 UT Sunday    WRMI 7780 [canceled March 22; reconfirm]
0130 UT Monday    WRN satellite and webcast, confirm ex-0230
0130 UT Monday    WRMI 7780 to NE
0130.5  Monday    WRMI 9395 to NNW; reconfirm new 5800 Mar 23 to SSE but since then 5800 has been off air by this hour
0230 UT Monday    WRMI 7780 to NE
0300vUT Monday    WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
0330 UT Monday    WRMI 9955 to SSE
0900 UT Monday    Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB or 3210
1800vUT Monday    IRRS 7290 Romania? [ex-1900] to WNW

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

Thanks last week for financial support from Gerald T Pollard, Raleigh NC, a generous seasonal check in US funds on a US bank, to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

Thanks this week for financial support from Robert Brunner via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com --- PP not necessarily in US funds

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
The Eurotimes to be earlied by an hour shortly
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17815, March 29 at 1456, S9+10 gospel huxter in English, the OSOB; as WHRI is now registered 250 kW at 85 degrees for Africa, daily at 14-21 UT, but maybe not fully occupied (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 820, March 29 at 0647 UT, the guys at Red Eye Radio`s WBAP are getting torn up by CCI from mostly women voices, also talk in English. This should not be happening so close to a `clear` channel from Fort Worth. Makes SAH of 128/minute, just over 2.0 Hz. But wait: fortunately at 0653 UT two clear IDs for WCPT in program promo, so it`s Chicago`s Progressive Talk. U2 5.8/1.5 kW from Willow Springs.

Night pattern is supposed to be all to the NNE, nothing thisaway:
https://transition.fcc.gov/Bureaus/MB/Databases/AM_DA_patterns/1717086-128498.pdf

Daytime map is roughly circular but an expanded lobe to the SW.
https://publicfiles.fcc.gov/am-profile/wcpt/contour-maps/

Obviously WCPT is on day facilities, invoked on emergency basis, or error? Like to think the former. RER is anything but Progressive. WWBA in FL used to collide with WBAP also with RER, but not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Minor regional tropo morning of March 29, much less than previous days. Hepburn maps predicted minor enhancement south of here, not north, but only decodee circa 1500 UT is RF 31, 31-1 KDCU-DT Derby  KS; several other BAD VHF and UHF bars match for the Wichita market  (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2800, March 29 at 0613 UT, JBA carrier vs high storm noise level --- likely second harmonic of one of the hundreds of 1400 kHz stations; rather than fourth harmonic of one of the few 700s, nor 5 x 560. Alert: worth further pursuit also by others (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
