Channel 292 newsletter 30 April 2020

New, starting 1st of May: 3955 kHz (+ 6070 & 7440 kHz  ­

­ Welcome to our first newsletter.

On the 1st of may, we start our new frequency 3955 kHz. Information conc. the program you find here:
https://www.channel292.de/schedule-3955-khz/
We are still working on it, so in the beginning not everything might be perfect, but reception reports are extremely welcome!
One request we have today:
We have to finance the station by renting out airtime, and this only covers about 30% of the costs. The bookings of Brother Stair, "The Overcomer Ministry" helped to finance the additional frequency, but May 17th will be his last day. Would be nice, if he would get some reception reports until then.
Very helpful now is the booking of "Word of Deliverance" with two to three hours a day. To let them know, that the program can be heard, please send reception reports to:
freedom33359@gmail.com
This will help us a lot, and maybe you set us /cc or /bcc when you send your report, THANK YOU!
And, when you write to Pastor Inman: We suggested, to change the program from 100% talk, to 50% talk and 50% the kind of music we like to play, to make the program much more interesting to people, who might not be so into religious content. If you think, this would be a good idea, maybe you mention it in your report.

That's all for today, we have to work on the transmitter and antenna for 3955 kHz. If you have questions, never hesitate to write us. If you know someone, who might be interested, to book commercials on our station, or broadcast his program, please forward our contact data, or let us know!
And we are always open for your wishes and suggestions.

We wish you a healthy and happy May!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind regards

Glenn Hauser logs April 29-30, 2020

** CUBA. 13740, April 29 at 1334, RHC back on here instead of 13780: they can`t decide which one to keep. // 13700 as usual, and it`s the one also producing extremely distorted spurblobs circa 13637 and 13763. This time no readable program audio on them in SSB, AM or FM reception modes. 1424 check, 13700 still on, spurs off and 13740 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15730, April 30 at 0013, RHC on and propagating, but suptorted with cutouts, French not // 5040 Kriyol. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15230, April 30 at 0013, RHC in Spanish! This frequency has been running only in the mornings, 13-15 per Eibi, 11-15 per Aoki/NDXC. This is only the start of various new frequencies/times now heard:

11800, April 30 at 0016, new RHC in Spanish // 11760, and // ripple/distorted 11670 as if two carriers? but 11700 and 11850 are both OFF. So the 11850 parasites on 11840 & 11860 also off. Which one does 11800 replace, or both? 11800 better not be on before 0000 as the others were, due to Romania in Spanish! Something`s always wrong at RHC. The 11980 harmonic of 5990 CRI in Spanish also audible now.

9340, April 30 at 0021, RHC on brand new frequency in Spanish, but missing from 9535 & 9640 the normal 31mb tarde channels; replaces both, or error, or?

Another change reported by wolfie the morning of April 29 was 7350 instead of 7340. Remains to be heard if all these changes stick, and what more there may be; Arnie just getting around to post-seasonal juggling? Or maybe to celebrate May 1: ``patria o suerte, ¡pensaremos!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, April 30 at 0037, Radio Progreso is S9+10/20 of dead air until cut off at 0043.5*, back on *0051.8-0052.3* still with no modulation. Lite CODAR swishing QRM only on the LSB side. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 29 at 2242, VOT makes it on air today, S9+5 during Turkish music fill. Seems their success rate on this transmission is less than 50%; and when it is on they claim it`s the 1230 on 15450. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler and/or awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2031 monitoring: confirmed after 2100 Wed April 29 on WBCQ 7490.1v, JBA here and UTwente; VP at Chicagoland KiwiSDR, sufficient at one of the numerous Rochesters.

Also confirmed UT Thu April 30 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9 on generous meter but rates only poor vs noise level. Presumably much better to the NE of FL.

WOR 2032 should be ready by early UT Fri May 1, for first WRMI broadcast at 2200 on 9955. BTW, I`ve been feeling OK since 2031.

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts: http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Wolfgang Bueschel observations

USA   re 5010 kHz  WRMI Okeechobee, Florida US state in North America,
yes noted today April 29 empty channel ON AIR
in 06-07 UT time slot, strength like Cuba Spanish Latin music on 5025 kHz.



Surprise, surprise, RHC on 7350 kHz.

CUBA   RHC Spanish now on 7350.001 kHz from Bejucal site.
But not at 11.00 UT check, nor at 11.12 UT,
noticed this channel later after 12 UTC. 12.05-12.15 UT noted
on S=9+25dB in Edmonton Alberta Canada remote Perseus installation.

Adjacent KNLS ALaska 7355 kHz at 12.10 UT at S=9+10dB strength,
and CNR1  Beijing-Matoucun #572 site Mandarin sce on 7345 kHz S=8.

Noticed also in 22 mb RHC  now - VERY SURPRISING -
not on A-season 13780 kHz channel, but on 13740 kHz again,
broadband 20 kHz wideband audio !
co-channel and - latter - covered as always since years by
TDF RFI Issoudun France in northern summer A-seasons.

At 10.53 UT noticed Cuba RHC TX ON AIR already from Quivican San Felipe
TITAN 250 kW site, S=9+40dB on exact
5999.994 kHz, at same time check also
6100even (ex11950) RHC from Bauta site at 11.07 UT,
also empty TX carrier channel 10.54 - 11.00 UT on S=9+25dB strength.

9535even RHC Bejucal, poor S=6-7 at 11.04 UT in NJ, NY, MI, states;
and Edmonton Canada.

At 11 UT also string visible on 15230 kHz, but under threshold,
probably from RHC Quivican site towards Brazil and Argentina ?

7305even kHz  At 11.25 UT S=9+20dB empty txion channel like
engineering test on US Greenville NC site.
At same time powerhouse 7335 kHz R Marti Spanish to Cuba,
despite of Drumps budget lowers from 29 to 11 mill $ annually.

On 25 and 22 mb also noted some scratching audio signals
annoying in ranges
CODAR transmissions
11857 to 11865 kHz and
11926 to 11933 kHz at 11.21 UT,
13424 to 13477 kHz at 12.52 UT

OTHR broad 13505 to 13515 kHz signal block from Asia at 12.53 UT

Also - I guess - 13603 to 13609 kHz - some scratch audio
? intermodulation appears from Bejucal Cuba site ?
Low -104dBm on threshold level in eastern US states,
but stronger noted in western Canada at Edmonton remote SDR site.
Othe scratches of audio intermodulation mix of UNKNOWN txion center at 13.03
UT on 13571, 13682, and 13820 kHz.

Now - from 13 - 15 UT,  at 13.06 UT check RHC Bauta now appears also on
13700even kHz. In peaks up to 20 kHz wideband audio.
Fair S=8-9 signal in Alberta CAN.

Absolute Radio to commemorate VE Day with special pop-up radio station

Absolute Radio has announced that in honour of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday 8th May, it will launch a pop-up radio station entirely dedicated to the 1940s. Created to honour the inspiring
generation of people who lived through the Second World War and the sacrifices they made, this innovative new launch will be made available across the UK for 24 hours.
At a time when sales of Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ has soared, Absolute Radio 40s will bring older generations the comfort of a trip down memory lane, by playing an uplifting mix of songs from artists including Billie Holliday, The Andrews Sisters, Judy Garland, Glenn Miller, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Gracie Fields, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and of course Vera Lynn.
For audiences who have been inspired by war veteran Captain Tom Moore’s story and wish to know more about World War II, Absolute Radio 40s will play special news bulletins which chart events as they unfolded on 8th May 1945. There’ll also be poignant speech content from those who were part of the original celebrations. Presenters featured on the station across the day include Dave Berry, Jason Manford, Leona Graham and Claire Sturgess.
While VE Day celebrations have been scaled back nationwide, Absolute Radio 40s will allow listeners to mark the truly momentous occasion. Uniting care-homes, hospitals and residences across the country, the station will create the biggest virtual self-isolation street party in the UK. Whether audience members wish to listen to heart-warming stories and pay their respects or tip off elderly relatives of their chance to hear some of their old favourites, this 24-hour event on 8th May is not one to be missed.
Absolute Radio Content Director Paul Sylvester says: “The 75th anniversary of VE Day is a momentous event in our history and it’s tragic that celebrations have had to be rightly curtailed because of the Coronavirus. The incredible music and compelling stories you’ll hear on Absolute Radio 40s will bring comfort and entertainment to those older listeners in self-isolation and remind the rest of us of the importance of this day. Taking the Absolute Radio decade strategy and creating this unique pop-up station for 24 hours is the simplest way that we can pay our own very small tribute.”
Absolute Radio 40s will broadcast from 24 hours launching at midnight on Friday 8th May. The station will be available on 1215AM across the UK, on DAB+ in London and online at absoluteradio.co.uk.
Absolute Radio 40s is a co-production with TBI Media who recently partnered with Absolute Radio to create the Front Room Festival, a celebration of live music in self-isolation. The whole project has been made possible thanks to a grant from The Audio Content Fund.

Glenn Hauser logs April 25, 28-29, 2020

** CUBA. 13502, 13568, 13634; 13766, 13832, 13897 approx., April 28 at 1418, extremely distorted spurblobs out of S9+30 13700-AM of RHC. The inner pair are much stronger than the rest at intervals of about 66 kHz; more readable in AM than FM mode which also bears the earmark F# tone above Cmiddle. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11980, April 29 at 0020, CRI relay in stilted Spanish, S8/S9+10 which could be mistaken for a fundamental instead of the second harmonic of 5990 which is S9+10/30; also on non-harmonic weaker // 15120. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Both fundamentals are Quivicán per Aoki/NDXC but fails to acknowledge the existence of 11980. Nor does Eibi, but ``harm`` 12000 for RHC, and the Vanuatus, nothing else despite what I and others may hear. Aoki does not even include the widely-reported Vanuatu multiples of 3945.

I find it perplexing how some DX sources are so reluctant to publish harmonix and other monitored spurs. Sesquidecades ago I had a column in NASWA FRENDX, `Hunting Harmonics with Hauser`, and got the impression that some `DXperts` were reluctant to admit that they really exist, that I was not imagining them, or suffering from receiver-produced images (which can also happen, but, know how to tell the difference!) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000 & 6145, UT Wed April 29 at 0030, at tune-in the mit-week edition of RHC `DXers Unlimited` is just starting right at the midpoint of its widely variable timing during each English hour --- assuming that started on time, not always the case. First topix are the sporadic-E season about to start (meaning on VHF, it already did, April 13/15, and before that on HF); and sunspot signs of two solar cycles at once --- but reception is so poor on the only two frequencies, due to heavy storms in central and NE Oklahoma, and undermodulated/weak signals, that I give up.

Why, in the noisy, insolated summer, are all RHC English eggs in one 6 MHz basket after 00 UT, plus even lower 5 MHz, not always, after 05 UT? Makes one wonder how well frequency manager Arnie really understand propagation. I would not call him a ``self-styled expert`` as he once honored me. Something`s always wrong at RHC, and this is just another thing, self-defeating its anti-American propaganda --- so, way to go! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1600, April 28 at 1456 UT during talkshow, KUSH Cushing carrier is rapidly rippling, unlike any of its neighbors (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. For Lane Whitesell --- I am not a big opera fan, and rarely listen to an entire opera, unless maybe Mozart or Glass, but I want to thank you for the wonderful music you play afterwards until 5:00 including today April 25! Do keep doing it. Glenn Hauser (a former classical music programmer and announcer, myself) [on KUCO 90.1 contact webform]

Thanks for the comment --- It's nice to be appreciated for what I try to do well in the studio (at KUCO). Thanks! (Lane A. Whitesell, April 26 to gh)

I am referring to vocal/choral music, not necessarily operatic, often keyed to performers` birthdays, to fill out the widely variable space following Met or other Saturday opera broadcasts which generally start at 1700 UT, up to 2200 UT when you may also want to stay tuned for `Footlight Parade` from elsewhere, Broadway to operatic, this time all: the great Russian basso Fyodor Chaliapin. Also webcast via: http://www.kucofm.com and here`s Mr Whitesell. who can be blown up to hi-res closeup: https://www.kucofm.com/about/staff/m.staff/130/view/18 His ~2-hour filler does not show as a separate entry on the skedgrid: https://www.kucofm.com/programs/program-schedule-grid/ a station which makes it almost bearable to live in Oklahoma (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PRIDNESTROVYE. 12160, April 28 at 1434, VP talk in unknown language vs lite CODAR. Aoki/NDXC shows TWR-India via MDA/Grigoriopol`/KCH site at 1345-1445 on a complex language schedule per quarter-hour, this one in Hindi on M-F only; off earlier other days. Just so gone by *1500 when WWCR-2 ascend from 7490 to 12160 --- not *1600 as in Aoki, outdated standard timing? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 28 at 2234 check, another failed non-broadcast of VOT English to North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17530, April 28 at 1435-1436* open carrier cuts off shortly after tune-in; presumably IBB Grimesland routine transmitter check a few hours before scheduled broadcast on same (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, April 28 at 0559, S9+10/20 of open carrier; can`t see how it could be anything but WRMI-10 which nominally closes at 0330 after Argentina relay. So why on now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, April 28 at 0558, WWCR is S9+40 but dead air except for some hum; by 0604 has resumed with TOMBS, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, April 29 at 0149, just at tune-in, WRNO drops off the air, and still off by 0156 tune-out. No great loss (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs April 27-28, 2020

** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, UT Tue April 28 at 0230, via WRMI, RAE AAM
opening octolingual hour in Spanish. Fernando says it`s ``Made in
Casa`` #5, but impression from further comments is that was recorded
last week, not today. German YL a few minutes later, usw., etc. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11950, April 27 at 2217, this RHC on earlier than nominal *2300 for alternate `Mesa Redonda` TV soundtrack. It`s a speech by some Commie, perhaps a live event, distorted here, but // mainstream RHC Spanish on 11760, undermodulated 11850 and its spur on 11840; while 11700 is in Portuguese, 13740 and 15370 are off. 6000 is on at 2225 and the SSOB at S9 --- except it`s dead air. Normally it would be // 11950 for the separate M.R. at 23-24. By 0214 Apr 28, 6000 is JBM, perhaps in English like louder 6145. Something`s always wrong at RHC ::: (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, April 28 at 0219, RHC Spanish is S9+20, overmodulated and distorted. 11760 is off already. Not on at 2217, but 13740 is on now, S9+20. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Just for giggles, let`s check own website frecuencias schedule at: http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/frecuencias
It`s still the B-18 sked! headed ``HORARIOS, BANDAS Y FRECUENCIAS EN ESPAÑOL PERIODO NOVIEMBRE 2018/MARZO 2019 CAMBIO DE HORARIO Y FRECUENCIA 11 DE NOVIEMBRE`` not including any 11760 in the tarde; but EiBi A-20 shows 21-02 while 11670 is 23-04, 11850 21-05.

As for the Esperanto broadcast missing at least the last two weeks from Sunday 1500 on 11760 & 15140, now the Esperanto page http://www.radiohc.cu/eo does provide audio of the April 26 show, which 2+ minutes into announces the schedule as Sundays: 08 UTC on 6100; 16 on 11760; 2230 on 15730 --- those are winter times! Should be at 07 and 15, but maybe still at 2230. I`ve checked neither the first nor the last, and who knows, maybe sometech axually believe it`s supposed to be at 16?(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 27 at 2214, zero signal from VOT English to North America. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler, and/or awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2031 monitoring: confirmed Monday April 27 at 1800:40 on IRRS 7290, VG via UTwente SDR. Open carrier already on at 1755 (and Iran in Italian already off, this week!); 1759:40 IRRS sign-on, 3 headlines from Feature Story News, then WOR. There is no ACI plus/minus 5 on the tuner, but still some QRM on 7290, apparently splashing out of 7280 Vietnam. After lunch, 1829 recheck just as WOR has ended, FSN from Washington yet British accent, with more detail, but cut to dead air at 1832 and still dead past 1838 when The Shortwave Report should be playing. I hope there were no such interruptions to *our* SW report.

Also confirmed UT Tue April 28 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 here but noisy so only fair; at 0127 check, poor at UTwente, but VG at remote in Maine. Next:

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

Thanks this week for financial support from Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA, who sent a generous US$ cheque to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, April 28 at 0010, ``weather around the globe`` --- followed by --- music! on SMTV via WRMI. Just another example why it`s not a good idea to run TV soundtrax on radio without ``translating`` video-only info into audio. I can just *imagine* the grafix with maps and temps, like on NHK Newsline, along with its tiresome always-same music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, April 28 at 0216, WRMI relaying RPI in Spanish, but as I tune in with BFO, carrier is breaking up rapidly, then settles down. Good thing there is an adjacent standby transmitter for this System and frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490.097V, April 28 at 0015-0100, WBCQ with `From the Isle of Music`, jazz as promised this week, mostly music rather than interviews, fair S9+10.

I was glad to advance-publicize a WBCQ special for Tuesday May 5 at 21-22 UT, featuring this and other musical programmers. Unfortunately, we know that this time of year, reception that early in the day to this far away will be poor, mostly absorbed before it get here, just like other shows at 21, Marion`s Attic, BeHAViour Night, and World of Radio. To be on 7490; and 5130 which will be even worse in the afternoon. Why not repeat it after dark?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs April 26-27, 2020

** ALASKA. 9580, April 27 at 1454, ending `Creation Moment`, anti-science nonsense, then rock music, and KNLS closing with English schedule for ``New Life Station`` including 13760 at 03 for S Asia, i.e. via Madagascar. This confirms that not all the English hours from MWV Mahajanga are African Pathways Radio as one schedule asserted. Alaska had resumed on April 23 after 3+ weeks off, not clear exactly why, expenses?

Supposedly current sked for both is here: https://www.worldchristian.org/welcome/who-we-are/how-to-listen/ including KNLS English: 08 on 9695; 10 on 9580; 12 on 9795 and 7355; 14 on 9580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALASKA. 9730, April 27 at 1502, rock song at S4-S6, clearly a station that does not believe in news on the hour --- or any news at all about the *real* world. 9730 is heavily used by China, North Korea, Vietnam and Myanmar, but Aoki shows this one-hour window for KNLS in Russian; only possible competition being SOH Taiwan relaying RFA up to 20 hours a day including this one. In fact, it`s the same KNLS-2 transmitter I just heard in English before 1500 on 9580, but now 30 degrees clockwise at 300 degrees for ``E Central Russia`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 9680, April 27 at 1501, S5-S9 open carrier, presumably CNR1 jammer against Taiwan not turned off yet, but could be vice versa. Aoki/NDXC shows jammer site as Kunming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 11640, April 26 at 2125, chat in English about the value of reading books, African accent, S4-S5. It`s CRI via MALI, that odd half-hour broadcast until 2130, or is it expansion of the previous one-hour? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, April 27 at 0550, RHC in Spanish instead of English during this hour, S9+30. Something`s always cockeyed at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13763 & 13637 approx., April 27 at 1406, RHC `Sonido Cubano` music back on big distorted S9 spurblobs, about plus/minus 63 kHz out of 13700-AM transmitter. Useless in SSB tuning but audible in AM or FM, and with the F# tone in FM. JBA on second-orders circa 13573 & 13827. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 7335, April 27 at 0554, Radio Martí music at S9+20, apparently hit parade having reached #1, no jamming audible at first unlike slightly weaker // 7365 S9+10/20. 0559 elaborate ID, ``siempre contigo``. 0600 becomes `Radio Revoltillo`, show of revolting comments, dated jueves 23 de abril, so a replay; also counts number of days to end of year. Jamming now audible under 7335. Nothing on 5980 now except jamming as no RM until 0700; and 6030 audible under jamming. Comments about how the Great October Revolution was really in November due to calendar changes. 0613 takes phone call to a 305 number, evidently from another exile; or contact via radiorevoltillo@gmail.com

RM has other music shows late at night. Better enjoy all this while you can, as overnight 04-10 UT transmissions on SW are to be canceled effective May 2, apparently due to a major budget cut. RM is the main output of Grimesland, vs only a few VOA transmissions in Bambara, French, Hausa, English, so we fear this could be the beginning of the end for the ``Greenville`` site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, April 27 at 0554 tune-in, big VON carrier cuts off immediately, unknown if ever came back. At least they tried (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2031 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday April 27 at 0130 on WRMI 7780 - only, VG via Maine SDR; repeated at 0230.

Also confirmed UT Mon Apr 27 starting at 0305 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5130-, stably a few Hz on minus side, after an ancient Jean Shepherd stream-of-consciousness monolog ran over, concluding with his peppy themesong - what was it? Axually better here, S9+10/20 than to a Rochester remote where there were storms. Alternate 6160v NOT on the air.

WOR 2031 presumably confirmed UT Mon Apr 27 at 0330 on WRMI 9955; checked previous semihour during RPI it was S9+10. Next:

1800vUT Monday    IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW, 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Thanks this week for financial support from Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA, who sent a generous US$ cheque to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Sunday April 26 at 2120, WRMI with chat between W&M about their favorite TV shows; it`s `The Lab` for a semihour, easily overlooked and last reported in September as in DXLD 19-39, with quotation from WRMI program page still there, outdated info lacking this very airing, IDing them as Kate Holiday and Ryan Rivers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
20 - 26 April 2020

Solar activity was very low throughout the period. Region 2760 (S07,
L=305, class/area=Bxo/10 on 26 Apr) developed late in the week but
remained quiet. No flare activity or earth-directed CMEs were
observed this period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
normal and normal to moderate levels this period.

Geomagnetic field activity reached active to G1 (Minor) geomagnetic
storm levels on 20 Apr, with isolated active conditions observed on
21 Apr, due to the influence of a recurrent, negative polarity CH
HSS. Generally quiet and quiet to unsettled conditions were
registered throughout the remainder of the week.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
27 April - 23 May 2020

Solar activity is expected to be very low throughout the outlook
period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to persist at normal and normal to moderate levels
throughout the outlook period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach active levels on 05
May in response to recurrent CH HSS influences. Generally quiet and
quiet to unsettled conditions are expected to prevail throughout the
remainder of the period.

RADIO FREE ASIA RELEASES USAGM BIBLIS QSL

Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces our sixth QSL card in the series highlighting USAGM transmitter sites used for RFA radio programming. Our programs also broadcast from these USAGM sites: Kuwait, Lampertheim, Saipan and Tinian. USAGM Biblis is one function of the USAGM’s Germany Station and is an integral part of USAGM’s global satellite interconnect system (SIS) carrying RFA programming where needed. This is RFA’s 73rd QSL and confirms all valid RFA reception reports May – August April 2020. Created by Congress in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, RFA broadcasts in Burmese, Cantonese, Khmer, Korean to North Korea, Lao, MandarinChinese, Vietnamese, Tibetan (including Uke, Amdo, and Khamdialects), and Uyghur. RFA strives for accuracy, balance, and fairness in our editorial content. As a ‘surrogate’ broadcaster, RFA provides news and commentary specific to each of our target countries, acting as the free press these countries lack. RFA broadcasts only in local languages and dialects, and most of our broadcasts comprise news of specific local interest. More information about RFA, including our current broadcast frequency schedule, is always available at www.rfa.org. RFA encourages listeners to submit reception reports. Reception reports are valuable to RFA as they help us evaluate the signal strength and quality of our transmissions. RFA confirms all accurate reception reports by mailing a QSL card to the listener. RFA welcomes all reception report submissions at http://techweb.rfa.org (follow the QSL REPORTS link) not only from DXers, but also from our general listening audience.Reception reports are also accepted by email at qsl@rfa.org and by mail to:

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST

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

1) Austria - ORF/OE1: Added station (thanks to Glenn Hauser)
2) France - RFI: Added links to programme and Facebook pages of Musique du Monde
3) Greece - V of Greece: As VoG now relays the Proto (1st) programme, in place of the ERT external services, added links to this service.
Additionally, Proto may relay overnight either the Deftero (2nd) or Trito (3rd) programme, so added links to these as well (with thanks to Richard Langley in WOR iog for initial tip)
4) Lao - Lao National R: Added links for this station (with thanks to
David Kernick, Interval Signal Online, via WOR iog for initial tip)
5) UK - BBC WS: Updated link to "regional schedules"
6) UK - European Music R: Deleted entry (the former archived website/domain has now been deleted)
7) USA - R Free Asia: Added link to RFA website (thanks to an initial tip by Bill Harms in faceBook group)
8) USA - WEWN: Updated link to frequency schedules

Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be late
May. Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, April 25)

** CUBA. 11880, April 25 at 2232, RHC Portuguese is S9+20 but very distorted. 11 seconds later the same thing is heard on 11700 at S9+10, a bit crackly but not distorted. The former bodes ill for the quality of English to follow at 2300. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 15370 also supposed to be on now but a JBA carrier and nothing else on 19m is any better, degraded propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760 // suptorted 15140, April 26 at 1512 check, RHC in Spanish, another Sunday missing Esperanto. Plenty of it can be read at  http://www.radiohc.cu/eo  including items with recent dates and linx to audio of April 5, 12 and 19 shows, and maybe will add 26 yet missing from SW. Something`s always wrong at Radio Havano Kubo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 26 at 1932, NO signal from RHC English. But: 15370, April 26 at 1932, RHC French is S9+20, OK modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC. On rare occasions 15140 programs go out instead on spy-numbers frequency 16180, but not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 15130, April 26 at 1932, JBA music S2-S3; listed as NHK Japanese relay; hardly anything else trans-Atlantic on band and even Cuba missing from 15140 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, April 26 at 0616, TGAV is still on late and stronger than usual at S9+10/20 during sermon in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** HAWAII. 5000, April 26 at 0619, WWVH with jittery Doppler flutter on carrier when heard with BFO, sign of severe prop disturbance, very unusual over such a low-latitude path; and NO signal from WWV Colorado which is normally atop here; it can be heard on 2500 tho weaker than usual. Just missed the 0618 propagation report on WWV, but 3-hourly e-mail from WWV says at 0600 the K-index was only 2, SF 69, and no storms observed or predicted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 7310, Sat April 25 at 2245, RRI S3-S7 poor concluding DX Mailbag until 2246 just as in DX/SWL/MEDIA programs starting at 2240 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 25 at 2228, VOT English is on today, Turkish songs at S7-S9; no RTTY now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2031 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday April 26 starting at 0311, good on WA0RCR, 1860-AM via Edinburgh IN SDR south of Indianapolis. Next:

Thanks this week for financial support from Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA, who sent a generous US$ cheque to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, April 25 at 1824, WLCR via WBCQ is in English, not German as previously scheduled, only fair S5-S8. Their sked now shows German at 19-22 UT and wrong conversion to 8-11 pm local, tho they got French to France right with a 2-hour difference (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, April 26 at 1439, no signal from this WRMI which normally achieves at least a JBA carrier; also no signal at 1512 via remotes in Maine, Holland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
