Glenn Hauser logs June 18-19, 2018

** ANGUILLA. 6090, June 18 at 0548, CB/TUN/PMS/DGS is on as was 11775 daytime Sunday June 17, and also daytime Monday June 18; and 6090 back on starting UT Tuesday June 19; but likely will take the rest of the week off. After all, the Scotts have absolutely nothing new to say that they have not rebroadcast countless times before, dead or alive (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA [non]. 6134.89 approx., June 19 at 0053, one JBA carrier. I am looking for Radio Santa Cruz to be reactivated, as Manuel Méndez, Spain had reported to the WOR iog June 14:

``6134.82, Radio Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz de la Sierra is now out of air because a transmitter failure; a week ago was in the air with strong distorted signal and now, since about three or four days the station is inactive. I contacted with the station via e-mail and in three hours here is the answer:

"Estimado Manuel: Agradecerte por la comunicación y el seguimiento que haces a nuestra programación. Estamos con problemas en nuestro transmisor de OC; hasta el lunes tendremos solucionado y emisión en aire. Ruego hacerme conocer el estado de la señal. Un fuerte abrazo"

They say they have problems with the short wave transmitter. Monday, June 18 these problems will be solved and Radio Santa Cruz will be back on air and they ask me inform them how the signal is heard.
E-mail address: direccion@irfabolivia.org``

But the frequency I have is more likely Rádio Aparecida, Brasil, which some time ago adjusted down from 6135.2 to 6134.9 as MM has also logged it recently; in an apparent attempt to zero-beat with its neighbor, trying but failing at least to eliminate an audible het if not the CCI. Of course, RSC might not reactivate on exactly its same off-frequency as before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, June 18 at 0548, RHC English AWOL from here while still on the remaining four of the Cuban Five overkill, at a variety of modulation levels. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 14295, June 19 at 0118, JBA AM carrier INTRUDING in the 20m hamband, i.e. third harmonic of R. Progreso, 4765. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. Correxion re this log: ``6930-USB, June 17 at 0124, pirate with Alan Sherman`s ``Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah``, then ``Monster Mash``, both before wild audiences. S9 vs noise level about S7. Many logs here say it was Underground Radio, especially on the SSTV images:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,43454.0.html
For a Saturday night, not much activity: earlier pirate bandscans this session circa 0040 and 0111 I heard none`` ---

As reported by others in the NASWA Flashsheet, and another closer look at the SSTV, it`s UnderDOG Radio, not Underground; and the HFU thread link has changed by one digit?? Now starting at:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,43453.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1934 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday June 18 after 0130.5 on WRMI 5850 good, 7780 fair-poor. Also confirmed UT Monday June 18 from 0302 on Area 51 webcast, and fair at 0328 check on WBCQ 5129.82. Also confirmed UT Monday June 18 at 0350 the 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair; also immediate 0400 repeat on WRMI webcast only at 0425 check. Also confirmed UT Tuesday June 19 at 0049 the 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+30/45! Next:
Tue 2030  WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1935?]
Tue 2130  WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1935?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. June 18 at 2019+ I thought it would be interesting to compare reception from the six US SW stations on 31m in this daytime, via the E-W longwire into the R75:
9265V, WINB, S6-S5, no good, unreadable
9330v, WBCQ, JBA carrier vs S5 noise level
9350,  WWCR, S9+10/20
9395,  WRMI, S9/S5 fades
9475,  WTWW, S9/S5 fades, undermodulated
9980,  WWCR, S9+20/30
And the winner is --- obvious (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950 // much stronger 9395, UT Tuesday June 19 at 0052, WRMI Oldies on both. The System G program skedgrid at http://www.WRMIfqs does show XMTRS 5 at 285 degrees and 6 at 355 // at these EDTs: 19-22 & 01-04 = UT 23-02 & 05-08. But the transmission skedgrid above it does not fully agree, showing R. Prague at 2330-2400 UT on 5950 only. Not on the System G skedgrid, but there are lots of other opts-away from Oldies, especially during the 00-01 UT hour. It so happens that the semi-hour I found Oldies on both allegedly occurs only on UT Tue/Thu/Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9313.60V, June 19 at 0102, weak but recognizable dulcet tones of Brother Scare, synchronized with 9329.98V, WBCQ at S9+20, so the ``9330`` transmitter is putting out spurs again, this one minus 16.38 kHz --- so let`s look for a match at plus 16.38: yes, on 9346.35, about same S1-S2 level as the lower one. 

Those are first-order; how about second-order at double those offsets? Yes, even weaker on about 9297.2 and 9362.7, also less stable than the closer ones, or computed at 2 x 16.38 = 32.76 above and below. Within margins of error 0.02 kHz. I manage to detect all these despite pulsing QRM from a TV set worst in this area unless it be unplugged, let alone turned on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Monday June 18 circa 2336 and UT Tuesday June 19 at 0048, no signal from WWRB (nor, just in case, checked, 3215, 9370). I did catch it closing about 0102 on UT Sunday June 17, and JRX in Brasil logged it the next evening, UT Monday June 18 at 0138-0150, so apparently 5050 active only two evenings a week now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.92V, UT Tuesday June 19 at 0120, WTWW-3 with rock music, ``Keep the Ball Rollin```, // 5085 WTWW-1. Some distortion but better modulation than before, almost as good as even stronger and less fadey 5085. Upper frequency is S9+20 with deep fades to S5, and audibly waVering with BFO. Once again it`s the OSOB unless we include 15000 WWV/WWVH, and once again obviously propagating by sporadic E, of which there is plenty across America up to HF if not VHF MUFs. Without it, a 15.8 MHz night path only one megameter away would simply not be propagating. And no other broadcast stations are even trying.

I notice that no other SW monitors ever mention Es, perhaps because they are not equally experienced with USW, able to draw the obvious correlations (I also had *one* USB ham on the 18 MHz band in no hurry to ID, with typical deep but brief Es fading, his contact inaudible) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, June 19 at 0100, WHRI playing `Onward Christian Soldiers`, its crusading themesong bound to be offensive to other religions, immediately followed from 0100:43 by Voice of Vietnam opening English relay. Always a jarring juxtaposition; but perhaps the Viet Cong are more sanguine than other Commies about obligatory Atheism? Yet always strange bedfellows for LeSEA, but they get their own propaganda in amid VOV breaks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11905, June 19 at 0048, JBA music, YL talk, singing past 0058, but cuts off abruptly at 0059:07*. With that detail added I could repeat exactly what I said about this 48 hours earlier, so I do:

``11905, June 17 at 0051, VP S-0.5 with flutter, South Asian? music. But gone at 0100, and nothing at 0114-0116 when one expects to hear SLBC from *0115v. HFCC, EiBi and Aoki show nothing before 0100 (and HFCC doesn`t show SLBC at all). But all have CNR6 southward from Beijing in Amoy starting at 0100 --- I have *never* heard any sign of that when checking for SLBC circa 0115. Very strange. Possibly: what I heard was SLBC pre-checking but failing to come back on at normal time; or a major schedule change.``

Could someone better positioned to hear this, like in South Asia, identify it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

physical
oceanographer and one of the few on the planet with advanced education and
forecast experience in all disciplines. In terrestrial weather forecasting I
have 45 years of experience and in solar, space and geomagnetic weather
forecasting 34 years.

W4HM Solar Cycle 24 Update and 25 Forecast- Short and to the point.

Solar minimum may begin later this year and may last longer than any
previous solar cycle in the 20th century. When solar cycle 25 finally gets
underway it could be the weakest since the middle of the 19th century.
Another Dalton type lesser grand solar minimum may occur with a
corresponding cooling of earth’s climate. This would negate anthropogenic
climate change if it were occurring which it isn’t.

On February 1, 2008 I forecasted that solar cycle 24 would be the smallest
solar cycle in the past 100 years. That forecast verified. I also forecasted
that solar cycle 25 would be almost non nonexistent.

#169 Issued Tuesday Jun 19, 2018 at 1445 UTC

Important Solar, Space & Geomagnetic Weather Indices-

Solar activity was low.

The daily solar flux index numbers (DSFI) were 73.1 73.7 74.2

There had been 7 days in a row with a 2000 UTC daily solar flux index number
(DSFI) greater than 70.

The official daily sunspot number (DSSN) was 28.

There had been 7 days in a row with a daily sunspot number (DSSN) greater
than 0.

In 2018 there had been 87 days with an official daily sunspot number (DSSN)
of 0.

Sunspot group #12713 was located near N05W14 with a slightly complex beta
magnetic signature capable of releasing a very small in size B class solar
flare and an isolated small in size C class solar flare.

#12713 released 3 B class solar flares, the largest being a B1.7.

Recently emerged sunspot group #12714 was located near N08W41 with a
slightly complex beta magnetic signature capable of releasing a very small
in size B class solar flare and an isolated small in size C class solar
flare.

The 24 hour period 3 hour interval planetary K index (Kp) had been at a
minor geomagnetic storming level and quiet geomagnetic condition of 5 4 4 4
3 2 2 2.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum solar wind speed ranged between

565 & 486 km/s.

Northern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast b-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- S9 +1 to 9 at night and S1-3
at day,

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- S9+ 1 to 9 at night and
S4-7 at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- S0 at
night and S3-4 at day,

21000-21850 kHz- S0 at night and S1-2 at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- S0 at night and S1 at day,

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.

We are now firmly in the summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave
propagation conditions. Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are
most unbalanced across the equator during this time period.

During the northern hemisphere summer season the 14000- 30000 kHz frequency
range closes later due to more sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in
the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is lower
than in the southern hemisphere as heating in the F2 layer of the ionosphere
is higher and the layer less concentrated.

Almost daily during the northern hemisphere summer season you will find that
the 25600- 26100 kHz and 28000-30000 kHz frequency ranges 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).

Southern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast b-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- S9 +1 to 9 at night and S1-3

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- S9+ 1 to 9 at night and
S4-7 at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- S0 at
night and S3-4 at day,

21000-21850 kHz- S0 at night and S1-2 at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- S0 at night and S1 at day,

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.

We are now firmly in summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave
propagation conditions. Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are
most unbalanced across the equator during this time period.

During the southern hemisphere winter season the 14000- 30000 kHz frequency
range closes sooner due to less sun light illuminating the ionosphere than
in the northern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is higher
than in the northern hemisphere as the F2 layer of the ionosphere is lower
in height and more concentrated.

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. It does outperform VOA CAP.

And though this HF radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the
SIGINT_CAP software, 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 on every continent of the globe and tweak the forecast manually if
and when necessary.

And last but not least I look at ionsonde stations on every continent of the
globe.

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). Also by propagation path.

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.

Lower high frequency (80-30 meters) propagation conditions are impacted in a
negative manner not so much by variations in the maximum usable frequency
(MUF) along a particular propagation path and time but rather due to
geomagnetic elevated geomagnetic conditions (Kp-3-4), storms (Kp-5 &
greater) that increase signal absorption via the E layer (the altitude of
the radio aurora). Also increases in the lowest usable frequency (LUF) via D
layer RF signal absorption due to hard x-rays, galactic cosmic waves,
elevated background solar flux levels greater than B0 and energetic proton
flux levels at energies greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

Higher frequency (20-10 meters) propagation conditions are impacted in a
negative manner by variations in the maximum usable frequency (MUF) along a
particular propagation path and time due to the current sunspot number and
also due to elevated geomagnetic conditions (Kp-3-4), storms of Kp-5 &
greater. Also D layer RF signal absorption due to elevated (greater than B0)
background solar flux levels. Also to a lesser extent elevated proton flux
at energies greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL
HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

NOTE!!! The propagation indices "interpretations" are my personal
intellectual property. Therefore the radio wave propagation indices
interpretations contained herein is copyrighted © 1988-2018 by Thomas F.
Giella, W4HM, all rights reserved. Reproduction of information herein is
allowed without permission in advance as long as proper credit is given.

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible,
something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 11 - 17 June 2018

Solar activity was very low with only low level B-class flare
activity observed from Region 2713 (N06, L=285, class/area Bxo/060
on 13 Jun). No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in satellite
imagery.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 11-13 Jun and decreased to moderate levels on 14-17
Jun. The largest flux of the period was 1,840 pfu observed at
11/1945 UTC.

Geomagnetic field activity was at quiet levels under a nominal solar
wind regime. Solar wind speed ranged from approximately 280 km/s to
340 km/s through the majority of the period with total field at or
below 6 nT. At approximately 17/1250 UTC, a solar sector boundary
crossing was observed from a negative to a positive orientation. A
corresponding increase in total field to around 14 nT was observed
at 17/2355 UTC along with an increase in solar wind speed to near
415 km/s. This indicated the arrival of a CIR preceding a positive
polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS).

FORECAST OF SOLAR AND GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY 18 JUNE - 14 JULY 2018

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels with a slight
chance for C-class flares from 18 Jun-01 Jul with the return of old
Region 2712 (N15, L=176). Very low levels are expected for the rest
of the forecast period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to be at high levels on 28 Jun-10 Jul due to CH HSS
influence.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at unsettled to active
levels on 18-19, 24-25, and 27-30 Jun with G1 (Minor) storm levels
expected on 18 Jun and 28-29 Jun due to recurrent CH HSS activity.

W4HM Daily HF Radio Wave Propagation Forecast #2018-168

Greetings to my fellow hamateur radio and SWL radio enthusiasts around the
world.

Welcome to my “not for profit” daily W4HM Daily HF Radio Wave Propagation
Forecast.

It’s the only daily global HF radio wave propagation forecast produced on
the planet.

I'm a retired heliophysicist, terrestrial meteorologist/climatologist,
physical oceanographer and one of the few on the planet with advanced
education and forecast experience in all disciplines. In terrestrial weather
forecasting I
have 45 years of experience and in solar, space and geomagnetic weather
forecasting 34 years.

W4HM Solar Cycle 24 Update and 25 Forecast- Short and to the point.

Solar minimum may begin later this year and may last longer than any
previous solar cycle in the 20th century. When solar cycle 25 finally gets
underway it could be the weakest since the middle of the 19th century.
Another Dalton type lesser grand solar minimum may occur with a
corresponding cooling of earth’s climate. This would negate anthropogenic
climate change if it were occurring which it isn’t.

On February 1, 2008 I forecasted that solar cycle 24 would be the smallest
solar cycle in the past 100 years. That forecast verified. I also forecasted
that solar cycle 25 would be almost non nonexistent.

#168 Issued Monday Jun 18, 2018 at 1500 UTC

Important Solar, Space & Geomagnetic Weather Indices-

Solar activity was low.

The daily solar flux index numbers (DSFI) were 71.4 72.3 72.7

There had been 6 days in a row with a 2000 UTC daily solar flux index number
(DSFI) greater than 70.

The official daily sunspot number (DSSN) was 15.

There had been 6 days in a row with a daily sunspot number (DSSN) greater
than 0.

In 2018 there had been 87 days with an official daily sunspot number (DSSN)
of 0.

Sunspot group #12713 was located near N05E04 with a slightly complex beta
magnetic signature capable of releasing a very small in size B class solar
flare and an isolated small in size C class solar flare.

#12713 released 2 A class and 5 B class solar flare, the largest being a
B1.3.

(((((Newly emerged sunspot group #12714 was located near N07W35 with a
slightly complex beta magnetic signature capable of releasing a very small
in size B class solar flare and an isolated small in size C class solar
flare.)))))

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

But this Monday morning June 18, 2018 between 0000-1200 UTC the Kp index has
been at a minor geomagnetic storming level to active geomagnetic condition.
5 4 4 4.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum solar wind speed ranged between 360 &
273 km/s.

But this Monday morning June 18, 2018 the solar wind has ranged between 597
& 295.

Global Daily HF Radio Wave Propagation Forecast-

HF radio wave propagation condition “trend” Jun 18, 2018- deteriorating.

HF radio wave propagation condition “trend” Jun 19, 2018- steady.

HF radio wave propagation condition “trend” Jun 20, 2018- improving.

Northern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast b-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- S9 +1 to 9 at night and S1-3
at day,

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- S9+ 1 to 9 at night and
S4-7 at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- S0 at
night and S3-4 at day,

21000-21850 kHz- S0 at night and S1-2 at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- S0 at night and S1 at day,

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.

We are now firmly in the summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave
propagation conditions. Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are
most unbalanced across the equator during this time period.

During the northern hemisphere summer season the 14000- 30000 kHz frequency
range closes later due to more sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in
the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is lower
than in the southern hemisphere as heating in the F2 layer of the ionosphere
is higher and the layer less concentrated.

Almost daily during the northern hemisphere summer season you will find that
the 25600- 26100 kHz and 28000-30000 kHz frequency ranges 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).

Southern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast b-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- S9 +1 to 9 at night and S1-3

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- S9+ 1 to 9 at night and

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- S0 at
night and S3-4 at day,

21000-21850 kHz- S0 at night and S1-2 at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- S0 at night and S1 at day,

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.

We are now firmly in summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave
propagation conditions. Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are
most unbalanced across the equator during this time period.

During the southern hemisphere winter season the 14000- 30000 kHz frequency
range closes sooner due to less sun light illuminating the ionosphere than
in the northern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is higher
than in the northern hemisphere as the F2 layer of the ionosphere is lower
in height and more concentrated.

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. It does outperform VOA CAP.

And though this HF radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the
SIGINT_CAP software, 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 on every continent of the globe and tweak the forecast manually if
and when necessary.

And last but not least I look at ionsonde stations on every continent of the
globe.

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). Also by propagation path.

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.

Lower high frequency (80-30 meters) propagation conditions are impacted in a
negative manner not so much by variations in the maximum usable frequency
(MUF) along a particular propagation path and time but rather due to
geomagnetic elevated geomagnetic conditions (Kp-3-4), storms (Kp-5 &
greater) that increase signal absorption via the E layer (the altitude of
the radio aurora). Also increases in the lowest usable frequency (LUF) via D
layer RF signal absorption due to hard x-rays, galactic cosmic waves,
elevated background solar flux levels greater than B0 and energetic proton
flux levels at energies greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

Higher frequency (20-10 meters) propagation conditions are impacted in a
negative manner by variations in the maximum usable frequency (MUF) along a
particular propagation path and time due to the current sunspot number and
also due to elevated geomagnetic conditions (Kp-3-4), storms of Kp-5 &
greater. Also D layer RF signal absorption due to elevated (greater than B0)
background solar flux levels. Also to a lesser extent elevated proton flux
at energies greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL
HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

NOTE!!! The propagation indices "interpretations" are my personal
intellectual property. Therefore the radio wave propagation indices
interpretations contained herein is copyrighted © 1988-2018 by Thomas F.
Giella, W4HM, all rights reserved. Reproduction of information herein is
allowed without permission in advance as long as proper credit is given.

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible,
something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

Note! I use error prone RAW public domain data from the NOAA Space
Environment Center, other U.S. government entities and educational
institutions, to produce this daily HF radio wave propagation
forecast. This data is gathered and made public by the U.S. Government using
taxpayer $$$ (including mine).

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST update:

Hi Glenn, my latest Hitlist update:
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) Brazil - R Transmundial: Added links for this station
2) France - RFI: Update link to RFI English home page
3) Indonesia - RRI: Updated all links (Thanks to Mickey Delmage in   
   WOR-iog). Next update mid/late July 2018. 
Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, UK, June 17, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11640, Sunday June 17 at 1313, solo violin classical music, presumably Bach, on CNR1`s Sunday evening western cultural hour. Here to jam Taiwan, unheard. Easily recognizable, so I search for many //s, all! of them as jammers: 15110 under VOA Thailand, usual heavy mix, 15040 alone vs India, 13690 vs VOA Saipan, 11785 under VOA Philippines, 11540 vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, 9680 vs Taiwan, 9660 mixture with Taiwan. Clear 11640 and 15040 are best (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Slight correxion to the last time mentioned: 08 not 09 UT:

11760, June 16 at 1402, RHC is well modulated here, with plug for 13th Festival Internacional de Coros, 26-30 junio en La Habana; no, not a tribute to Arnie`s family, but choral performances with some nice classical music bits. 1403 opening `Cartas a la Redacción` which is not a mailbag: its announced times are Sat 10 am and 11 pm, Sunday 4 am always Cuban time = Sat 14, UT Sun 03 & 08, the latter when no SW transmitters should be on air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11730, June 17 at 0556 check, NHK 0530 French relay is still modulating OK. Will report again only if we catch it re-buzzing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.5, June 17 at 1916 UT, KGVV Goltry with Jesus praise music but modulation cuts out for a split second about 23 times per minute. // 98..5, K253BC, Enid is not doing this. Both supposed to originate with ``My Praise FM``, 88.7 KLVV Ponca City, also audible here, but *not* //. With newish 14 kW from nearby Goltry, KGVV has Enid within its local coverage contour, making the translator in Enid unnecessary, but they are not about to give it up and possiblize slightly more diverse programming on the FM band (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday June 17 at 0500, WTWW-2 still on with music, ID; 0506.5 switch to network feed with dropouts, another minute of music prélude, 0507.5 opening `Southern Talk at the Midnight`, long intro to tonight`s subject: ghosts. Unlike last week, and earlier tonight, nothing now audible on 15809.9, WTWW-3 nor at 0555, so either off or has ceased to propagate with no sporadic E.

Host tends to mumble; sure thought he said ``at the``, but finally found the website as ``in the``, neither making very good sense:

http://southerntalkinthemidnight.com
which forwards to:
http://tennhills-productions.com/

Dave Fluee (as really spelt) does not know the difference between CDT and CST. It starts at midnight ``CST`` or 10 pm ``PST``. Only on the sponsorship/sales page does it mention being two hours long. No physical or postal address can be found on website. Apparently has been going since at least February, but only recently added WTWW.

Motto is: ``From Science to Pseudoscience. And Conspiracies to Paranormal. SOUTHERN TALK IN THE MIDNIGHT --- Talk about: Ghosts, Hauntings, Conspiracies, Science, Area 51 and many many more topics too long to list. Conspiracy theory-themed Talk Program``

``From the great south east``, on WTWW 5085 (only) and apparently has only one other affiliate, in California, KCAA, on 1050, 102.3 and 106.5. Like, where? 1050, Loma Linda, 35 watts at night! But it webcasts. 102.3 is K272FQ in Riverside with 50 watts. 106.5 is K293CT, in Moreno Valley with 70 watts. LL is north of Riverside, MV is a suburb east.

Is there anything about this at http://wtww.us ? --- of course not! But still displays long-outdated info as if really broadcasting on 9930 in the afternoons with Dave Ramsey M-F, Bob Heil Saturdays.

I have seen no other log reports of STITM, and I am certainly not promoting this wacky show, a waste of time, not my teacup.

15809.911, Sunday June 17 at 1748 check, WTWW-3 is back on but quite weak, much less than neighbor 15825 WWCR. Am pretty sure talk program is // 9475 SFAW as to be expected at this hour, somebody talking / preaching off-mike which does not help. 9475 is also unusually weak, only S9. But at 1758*, 15810- is off and gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Follow-up to previous report about `Rockphesy` program:

Alan Gale, England, had reported it May 21 at 0100-0130 Monday on 7780 just before WOR: ``I was curious to see what the 'Rockphesy' programme was about, mostly rock music, but with some Christian messages and quite a few adverts, not the usual 'Bible Basher' type programme, and quite listenable for a change.``

`Rockphesy` is still on the WRMI System C 9955 schedule for Sunday 9:30 pm EDT – that`s on this page: http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs 
My previous search was on the original separate 9955 schedule at http://www..tinyurl.com/WRMI9955 which apparently has not been updated

And it`s also still on the WRMI System D schedule for UT Monday 0130 on 7780 and 5850; adding up to a trimulcast. Have not heard it myself, but I suppose name almost rhyme with ``prophesy``, another clue, or is it ``prophecy``? But then should be spelt with a C (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re previous report about WINB in DRM on 15665-15670-15675:
   ``What *is* the spoken programming in DRM?``

https://vocaroo.com/i/s0Nuc8wwuQTX
Don't be surprised how it sounds: The bitrate is lower than on a standard cellphone call (Kai Ludwig, WOR iog via DXLD)

W4HM Solar Cycle 24 Update and 25 Forecast- Short and to the point.

Solar minimum may begin later this year and may last longer than any
previous solar cycle in the 20th century. When solar cycle 25 finally gets
underway it could be the weakest since the middle of the 19th century.
Another Dalton type lesser grand solar minimum may occur with a
corresponding cooling of earth’s climate. This would negate anthropogenic
climate change if it were occurring which it isn’t.

On February 1, 2008 I forecasted that solar cycle 24 would be the smallest
solar cycle in the past 100 years. That forecast verified. I also forecasted
that solar cycle 25 would be almost non nonexistent.

#167 Issued Sunday Jun 17, 2018 at 1500 UTC

Important Solar, Space & Geomagnetic Weather Indices-

Solar activity was low.

The daily solar flux index numbers (DSFI) were 71.7 70.5 70.2

There had been 5 days in a row with a 2000 UTC daily solar flux index number
(DSFI) greater than 70.

The official daily sunspot number (DSSN) was 13.

There had been 5 days in a row with a daily sunspot number (DSSN) greater
than 0.

In 2018 there had been 87 days with an official daily sunspot number (DSSN)
of 0.

Sunspot group #12713 was located near N05E16 with a slightly complex beta
magnetic signature capable of releasing a very small in size B class solar
flare and an isolated small in size C class solar flare.

#12713 released 1 A class and 1 B class solar flare, the largest being a
B1.6.

The 24 hour period 3 hour interval planetary K index (Kp) had been at a
quiet geomagnetic condition of

0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1.

The 24 hour period maximum and minimum solar wind speed ranged between

307 & 281 km/s.

Northern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast g-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- S9 +1 to 9 at night and S1-3
at day,

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- S9+ 1 to 9 at night and
S4-7 at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- S0 at
night and S3-4 at day,

21000-21850 kHz- S0 at night and S1-2 at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- S0 at night and S1 at day,

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.

We are now firmly in the summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave
propagation conditions. Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are
most unbalanced across the equator during this time period.

During the northern hemisphere summer season the 14000- 30000 kHz frequency
range closes later due to more sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in
the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is lower
than in the southern hemisphere as heating in the F2 layer of the ionosphere
is higher and the layer less concentrated.

Almost daily during the northern hemisphere summer season you will find that
the 25600- 26100 kHz and 28000-30000 kHz frequency ranges 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).

Southern Hemisphere Radio Wave Propagation Forecast g-

3150-3400, 3500-4100, 4750-5050, 5700-6300 kHz- S9 +5 to 9 at night and S1-3

6900-7800, 9200-9995, 10000-10150, 11500-12200 kHz- S9+ 5 to 9 at night and
S4-7 at day,

13570-13850, 14000-14350, 15005-15900, 17450-17950, 18068-18168 kHz- S0 at
night and S4-5 at day,

21000-21850 kHz- S0 at night and S2-4 at day,

24890-24990, 25600-26100 kHz- S0 at night and S1 at day,

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.

We are now firmly in summer/winter solstice type of HF radio wave
propagation conditions. Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are
most unbalanced across the equator during this time period.

During the southern hemisphere winter season the 14000- 30000 kHz frequency
range closes sooner due to less sun light illuminating the ionosphere than
in the northern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is higher
than in the northern hemisphere as the F2 layer of the ionosphere is lower
in height and more concentrated.

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. It does outperform VOA CAP.

And though this HF radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the
SIGINT_CAP software, 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 on every continent of the globe and tweak the forecast manually if
and when necessary.

And last but not least I look at ionsonde stations on every continent of the
globe.

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). Also by propagation path.

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.

Lower high frequency (80-30 meters) propagation conditions are impacted in a
negative manner not so much by variations in the maximum usable frequency
(MUF) along a particular propagation path and time but rather due to
geomagnetic elevated geomagnetic conditions (Kp-3-4), storms (Kp-5 &
greater) that increase signal absorption via the E layer (the altitude of
the radio aurora). Also increases in the lowest usable frequency (LUF) via D
layer RF signal absorption due to hard x-rays, galactic cosmic waves,
elevated background solar flux levels greater than B0 and energetic proton
flux levels at energies greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

Higher frequency (20-10 meters) propagation conditions are impacted in a
negative manner by variations in the maximum usable frequency (MUF) along a
particular propagation path and time due to the current sunspot number and
also due to elevated geomagnetic conditions (Kp-3-4), storms of Kp-5 &
greater. Also D layer RF signal absorption due to elevated (greater than B0)
background solar flux levels. Also to a lesser extent elevated proton flux
at energies greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL
HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible,
something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.
