Glenn Hauser logs April 2-3, 2020

** AUSTRALIA. 11825, April 2 at 1447, YL with slow story in English, S9-S7; 1453 fading as OM explains story a little less slowly. Off at 1500 recheck. HFCC shows at 1430-1500 it`s KNX = Reach Beyond Australia, Kununurra. Probably the `Spotlight` evangelical show masquerading as language lesson (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 11880, April 2 at 1449, CRI Plus, English succeeds to be on air today via CUBA unlike yesterday. Something`s sometimes right at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 711.00, April 2 at 0558, the + 1 kHz off-frequency carrier from presumed R. Rebelde, but no modulation, is still there hetting legit 710.00 kHz stations; and this time can detect a beat from a second carrier about 1 Hz away instead of 3.33; another Cuban, or TA, at least one of which has varied frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2028)

** CUBA. 4765, April 3 at 0034 tune-in to dead air from Radio Progreso, S9+10/20; 0035 music starts; was there any modulation from nominal *0030? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13780, April 2 at 1443, RHC S9+10 of dead air; yes, back here after two mornings on 13740, ex-13780 since March 12. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 13700 is still modulating music at S9+20; no spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2028)

** KOREA NORTH. 11710, April 2 at 1505, choral music of the Juche type, also audible at 1450 when 11735 was also on and in with separate programming, i.e. VOK. Haven`t heard them for a long time, probably more due to springtime propagation uptick, altho suspect operation may also be sporadic due to power shortages, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, April 2 at 2356, S9 of dense and repetitive rock music, no ID at top-of-hour, but segués until stops April 3 at 0009 with no announcements. Lots of pirate logs this evening at hfunderground, but surprisingly not a single one of this even as unID like mine. Maybe they were all listening to 6923 which I did not find until later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6923.0-LSB, April 3 at 0012, pirate on here which was not a few minutes ago; unfamiliar music and no carrier had me tune to 6922.7-LSB where it seemed to sound ``best``, but 0014 DJ talk nails down the frequency, says a comet is coming; ``Virus-19 Radio``, hard rock. 0018 more DJ gab, another ID and music; 0024 ``it`s going to take you all; hunker down``. Going to conclude with Iron Butterfly which he remembers from when he was young; 0027 cut to another tune, and off at 0029:40*. Many more logs here https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,64972.0.html started by SyckO Radio who was also reported to take over the same frequency in a few minutes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, April 2 at 0449, anti-Christ pirate Station
YHWH is S7-S8 but fading down; off by 0512 recheck.

7475 also April 3 at 0257, JBA. He`s stuck to this frequency for the past week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2028)

Dan Sheedy also reports; ``At 0504* closing on April 2, he mentioned YHWH's 'daylight' frequency of 11.56 MHz (operating sporadically) & said the 7475 broadcast usually begins at "sunset on the Pacific Coast". Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA Eton "Ex-Sat'/6m X wire`` (vua gh)

** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. April 2 from 1812, via UTwente SDR, I cycle thru the registered frequencies at this hour in HFCC B-19, since there is nothing, yet? for A-20, not even an ARS page in the broadcasters` list; and why is it Arabie Saoudite? O, yeah, English is a nothing language for this SWBC, merely imagining 5 hours of it from 1600 on 9840, so I check that first:

9840, April 2 at 1812, ME music but Voice of Turkey ID in German at a time it is supposed to appear, rather than after 2300 on 9830 failing to turn off after English should it occasionally succeed.

Otherwise presume some are axually SA without digging deeper:
9580, nothing
6100, algo, Arabic from Jeddah scheduled but is anything from Jeddah?
9555, Arabic, mentions A-S; ACI from plus side
9675, Turkish
9870, Arabic JBA
11820.044, Arabic -- still not audible in OK
11915, Arabic much weaker
11930, Spanish from OCB mainly, maybe CCI SA
13720, nothing but noise
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2028)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 2 at 2234 check, poor music, so VOT is on today; no RTTY; off at 2352 check instead of extra German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. One more check of what`s really on WRMI, UT Thu April 2:
0236:
5010 & 5800, off
5850 // 9395, TIAMS
5950, unknown, SMTV?
7570 & 7730, TOMBS
7780, music; break in RUI English fairy tale saga?
9455, Hal Turner, hour 2 on Wednesday night only
9955, Spanish, Praga?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085 // 5830, April 2 at 0114, WTWW back on both frequencies, but both running SFAW gospel huxter, No rock on 5085. Has there been a counter-coup by SFAW HQ vs Ted`s takeover of #2 transmitter for commercial rock and ham stuff? No, by 0511, 5085 has resumed rock music at S9+40 while on other side of the megameter MUF, 5830 talk is JBA, weaker than neighbor 5935 WWCR.

5085, April 2 at 2355, WTWW-2 is on earlier than usual *0100 except Saturdays, hard-sell ad by Ted. FYI: hard-sell ads by Ted or anyone are immediate turn-offs for me. I will not buy *anything* that is pestering me to do so! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1520, April 2 at 0450 UT, KOKC OKC has heavy CCI, soon recognized as 25 kW daytimer KYND, with Bill Turner`s barker loop trying to attract programming to available airtime (even at night?); call him at 373-1520, area code missed; ``1520 AM, KYND Cypress-Houston`` unashamedly cheating at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, April 2 starting at 0606 UT: 531, 558, 621, 693, 747, 774(2), 792, 837, 846(suspect TP Kiritimati), 855, 882, 891, 909, 936(2), 999, 1089, 1098, 1107(2), 1125, 1134, 1152, 1215, 1305(2), 1458, 1503(2 @ 4 Hz apart; no matching pair at mwoffsets), 1584(2) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5000-5004, April 2 at 2354, the rapid RTTY QRM to WWV is still here 24 hours later. It was being widely heard last night in the WOR iog, including:

`` I’m hearing it here in upstate NY too at 0212 UTC. I doubt this is coming from WWV - it appears to be on the high side of 5 MHz. It almost buries WWV here in the East. Listening to a Kiwi in Kansas City, the noise is audible, but WWV is louder. Even on the Kiwi in Ft Collins itself, I can hear it in the background, but WWV is of course loud and clear. Jim Barrett - Elmira, NY``

``Now, WWV's signal is stronger at 0243 UT, but RTTY is still very strong at 5000.63, 5001.49, 5002.32, 5003.19, 5004.0 kHz. Maybe it is Fax. If so it`s about 3 kHz wide. Chuck Gessner, W3ON``

``I’ve been running TDOA analysis on various receivers in the Kiwi SDR network in the East and Midwest. It consistently shows a likely source along an axis from central Indiana, up towards Chicago. The transmission is indeed VERY strong on individual Kiwis near Chicago, Indianapolis and Minneapolis. Jim Barrett, Elmira, NY``

Wow. Thanks for the replies. I just turned on my Icom 756 transceiver at 1630 UT on Thursday, and I am hearing it loud. And that is 1230 pm EDT. I tried listening on my Cushcraft MA5B beam to see if there is any difference in signal level. It is mostly consistent with an S3 to S7 in most directions. At 300 degrees it was peaking from S4 to S9. I would suspect that under normal conditions propagation on 5 MHz would be about 500 to 700 miles from my location near Pittsburgh. As someone said, it is probably a goof on someone`s part. But who? 73 de Chuck W3ON`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2028)

Spenti i 216 kHz, è la fine di un'era

Il 27 marzo alle 23.00 UTC è stato spento il trasmettitore in onda lunga di Romoules che per decenni ha veicolato il segnale di RMC. Con questo contratto scaduto il 28 marzo e non rinnovato finisce un'era, la motivazione ufficiale sarebbe lìaccantonamento dei 600.000 euro l'anno, questa la spessa per poter trasmettere sulle onde lunghe, da investire prossimamente nel DAB+. Rimane quindi al momento inutilizzato il sito trasmittente della MMD che, quasi sicuramente, non troverà altri clienti a cui noleggiarlo. Si prevede tristemente un'altra demolizione....

Glenn Hauser logs April 1-2, 2020

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, April 1 circa 2015, WRMI relaying Prague in Amerenglish somewhat distorted, but too weak to copy by 2040 whether it`s still Radio Tirana --- which current sked shows is the only remaining time, 2030 Mon-Thu and Sat, blown away from 0230 or 0130 repeat times. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 11880, April 1 at 1445, NO signal from CRI Plus, English relay via CUBA, which started March 29 at 1400-1600, ex-15700 which has not come back either. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Nor anything on 9570, the pre-1400 Cuban relay in case forgot to QSY. But we do hear CRI this hour on 13710 via EAST TURKISTAN: see SAUDI ARABIA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COSTA RICA. 18127-USB, April 1 at 1437, Javier, TI2##, the OSOB in contact from CR, call and name fonetik but too much fading to copy. Maybe only one-letter suffix. Just to show that propagation is barely open over this path (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 711.00 kHz, April 2 at 0025, presumed R. Rebelde off-frequency hetting legitimate 710.00 kHz stations --- again and also again the ~200/minute beat or 3.33 Hz from another 711 kHz transmitter, in Cuba or somewhere. Now 31 minutes before LSS here of 0056 and only legit TA`s making it this early are 891 Algeria and much weaker 936 presumed Morocco. Since 711 was first widely heard across North America March 25, it seems everyone else quickly lost interest in it/them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, April 1 at 2326, RHC English is S9+10/20 but now distorted and hummy, much like 15140 has long been earlier in the day including 1900 English. Tsk2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15730, April 1 at 2329, RHC already opening Brazuguese for 2330, now also distorted much like 11880 English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, April 1 at 2015, Dengé Welat clandestine via FRANCE, mostly talk in Kurdish or Turkish; by 2039 clear ID and mostly music, enjoyable songs as long as I don`t understand the lyrix, S7-S9 right up to 2100* cutoff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5165.04, April 2 at 0014, S7 JBA music, must be a pirate; low weaker het from closer to 5165.00, maybe birdie. Depend on hfunderground to clear it up: numerous logs here https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,64931.0.html as Radio Illuminati starting at 2133 April 1 until off at 0032 April 2. AFD is reputed to be a prime day for piracy, but only one I hear, none on 6.9 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA [non]. 13710, April 1 at 1441, S9-S7 of Amerenglish, must be CRI on NF for A-20, instead of SBC, which was a regular here scheduled 15-18 until the end of B-19, and besides, it was always off-frequency, unlike this, which runs this hour only, 500 kW, ubiquitous 308-degree azimuth from Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, land of brainwashing Uighurs. In fact with 11880 CUBA relay AWOL, it`s our best CRI signal now. (Well, I should recheck for Sa`udi after 1457.)

Furthermore, am not hearing anything on 11820+ in our afternoons, which was another Sa`udi regular at 18-23. As of latest HFCC March 30, still not a single entry for ARS transmitters, nor even a blank space in the schedules by Broadcasters or FMOs. Is anyone hearing Sa`udi on SW, or have any access to a current schedule? 

Ordinarily there would not have been many changes from previous season. Here`s the B-19 schedule:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B19&broadc=ARS

Nothing after 2300, but B19 scheduled to start at 0200: 7410; from 0230: 9800; all these from 0300, mostly but not all in Arabic: 9580, 9675, 9835, 11710, 12025, 13650, 13660, 15170, 15220, 17760, 17895, 21665. Is anyone hearing any of these? Nothing at UTwente on 7410 by 0216 April 2. Jeff White says Sa`udis did not attend A-20 HFCC in KL Malaysia, but have not withdrawn from the organisation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWAZILAND. 9585-, April 1 at 1448, noisy open carrier S7-S4, presumably TWR which is scheduled to start at 1453 with Malagasy/French service; slightly off-frequency minus. May well be long-path, aimed ENE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 7780, April 1 at 2218, R. Taiwan in Spanish with Chinese lesson, confirmed new WRMI relay toward Europe, but only fair at UTwente SDR. Should be 2200-2230 only despite self-contradictory WRMI grid as 2200-2300 on 7780 #1 transmission sked; RTI publicity via Nino Marabello says they will be half-hours altho original Spanish may be for an hour. Not officially starting until UT April 6.

5010 // 5800 // 7780, April 2 at 0200, RTI Spanish via three WRMI frequencies contrary to schedule, repeating the ancient special about World Radio Day which was Feb 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 1 at 2200, NO signal from VOT English, despite this being the *only* transmission correctly announced in their sign-on! RTTY from NAU Puerto Rico is however running until it stops at 2210*, still no VOT, all as monitored at UTwente, let alone Enid. That`s a 25% success rate so far for VOT in A-20. Something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at Emirler.

9830, April 1 at 2347 recheck direct, now it`s on -- Turk music and soon conveniently ID in German, Die Stimme der Türkei! So they couldn`t get English going on time, but sometime since 2210 came on the air including spurious 2300- hour in German, just like they used to do far too often on 5960 at 0000 failing to turn that off after English at its later winter hour. At 2352 runs the multi-multi-language ID filler reel starting with English. But wait: there`s more. 

2353 IS keeps on going, and BTW, it sounds off-key in USB unless more precisely tuned to 9830.04 or .05. 2356 starts inserting ID amid IS in yet another language; 2359 I recognize it as Luso-Portuguese! Another totally off-schedule SW transmission. April 2 at 0000:03, timesignal ends 3 seconds late compared to WWV, and sign-on in Portuguese takes 2.5 minutes to list all the satellite parameters. Since they can`t get their SW frequencies right in English, I shudder to think how they may mangle all that Ku-band info. 0003 finally starts the notícias, still on at 0011. But we don`t get another full hour; by 0024 recheck it`s off. I can just imagine the sleepyrator at Emirler finally arousing. Did management notice? WRTH 2020 shows NO VOT Portuguese at any hour on SW; a rare treat. I hope some Portu-Brasilians caught it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non?]. 5000.0000, April 2 at 0018, checking WWV for exact time compared to TURKEY, q.v., also the minute for propagation info: SF=69, K=3, no disturbances past or future --- but with extremely fast RTTY QRM on the plus side covering 5000-5004! It`s even audible by tuning 5000-LSB. What`s that?!?! The little SF band is sacrosanct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2027 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 1 from 2100:25 on WBCQ 7490.1v, VP in S9 local noise level; slightly better even backward at far UTwente. 

Also confirmed final SWBC, UT Thu April 2 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, good at UTwente.

WOR 2028 should be downloadable by early UT Friday April 3, and first SWBC at 2200 on WRMI 9955.

** U S A. Some WRMI observations UT Thursday April 2:

0030:
5950 // 9395, closing `Walking in Power` gospel huxter a bit late, into music, Oldies
7730, Wavescan, first feature about Paraguay

0100: unchecked, except:
7780, WORLD OF RADIO 2027 confirmed, good at UTwente SDR

0130: via Alexandria SDR:
9395 // 5800, Prague in English; new time replacing Tirana; why?
9455, Hal Turner is back; was replaced by TOMBS last night
5850 // 5010, Oldies
7780, Wavescan on Paraguay

0200:
7780 // 5800 // 5010, RTI in Spanish on extra frequency, q.v.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 1 circa 2015, WJHR audible again with what else; this time also neighbors 15825 WWCR, 15610 WEWN, 13845 WWCR and perhaps also 15770 WRMI are getting sporadic-E boosts, the latter relaying Prague in Amerenglish somewhat distorted, but too weak to copy by 2040 whether it`s still Radio Tirana --- see ALBANIA [non]. DX MAPS show numerous HF blobs above 16 MHz MUFs mostly over eastern USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

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)

Coronavirus: Spain grants special authorization to radio hams

Southgate
31 March 2020

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

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 updated schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

(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)
