Glenn Hauser logs March 23-24, 2020

** ALASKA. 11755, March 24 at 1515, praise song in English, 1517 Russian announcement from KNLS, fairly holding its own against slightly stronger 11760 RHC; still at 1556+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13780, March 24 at 1512, RHC still on in dead air, while 13700 is still modulating; no spurs at all. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [non]. 7295, March 23 circa 1845, end of the detestable Steve Bannon`s `War Room Pandemic` via IRRS, expecting a second hour which is not aired here; music fill until 1859 IRRS ID explaining that its transmissions are in ``compatible USB``, so best reception by USB tuning. This is NOT the case via current Romania (or Bulgaria?), but may have been years ago when they were really out of Milano!

The only reason now to choose USB or LSB on these full DSB/AM transmissions is to avoid adjacent channel interference from the opposite side; of which there is plenty. All this via UTwente SDR. Even 7290 has splatter from 7280 - Vietnam listed, not 7285, as IRRS immediately jumped down to 7290 at 1900 for WORLD OF RADIO this Monday, socially distant 5 kHz from 7295 CRI Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of brainwashing Uighurs.

Note: from next week in A-20, different situation with IRRS shows one UT hour earlier. Registered to jump from 7295 to 7290 at 1800, whatever the adjacents may then be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, UT Tue March 24 at 0100, WRMI still replaying RTI relay test in Spanish, this one about the CV.

7780, UT Tue March 24 at 0200, WRMI replaying RTI Spanish relay test dated March 17, automatically from one week ago rather than restoring automation to previous whatever. See USA for another survey of what WRMI is really airing these hours on other frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2026 monitoring:

Confirmed Monday March 23 at 1900+ on IRRS 7290, after a few FSN headlines, VG via UTwente SDR, just jumped down from 7295. Note: from next week WOR to be at 1800 instead on 7290.

Also confirmed UT Tuesday March 24 at 0100 on WRMI 7780. Next:

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

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. See also TAIWAN [non]. Survey of what`s really on WRMI in the 01-03 period UT Tue Mar 24; I hope I`ve got this all right from my convoluted scribbled notes; using direct or various remotes as needed. I ignore 5950 presumed SMTV; 7570 & 7730 presumed TOMBS:

5010 // 5850, Robobibling in Spanish, Alameda Bible Fellowship (why in the world are they doing this? The entire Bible is available read and recorded by human beings, which ought to be more effective. Maybe God is really a robot? Or at least more relatable to inhumans)

5800, RTI Spanish test repeat from a week ago
7780, WORLD OF RADIO 2026
9395, RAE in English; presumably old show as closed down by CV

5010 // 5850, Wavescan
5800 // 9395, Radio Tirana
7780, ``pilot episode`` of new show! Missed name, music. Not WS.
9455, ``God Bless America`` music break in Hal Turner`s favorite rendition

5010, 5800, nothing audible at Alexandria VA, off
5850, music in Spanish; then distorted, similar to 7780 & 9395, not synchronized?
7780, another repeat of RTI Spanish March 17 test; music // 9395 at 0225
9955, Radio Praga, Spanish

5850, Slovakia in English, very distorted; // 9395 not distorted
7780, Ukraine in English
9455, rock music, oldies?
9955, Slovakia in Spanish
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, March 24 at 0612, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR instead of TOMBS, but still modulating on 3215; 5935 DGS at S4-S9. 5890 not on air, nor should it be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1736 UT March 24
