Radio Six International - August transmission failed but we'll be here in September

Our planned shortwave broadcast on 1st August didn't happen because the link between Glasgow and Rohrbach failed at the last minute.

We were very disappointed not to be able to reach our shortwave fans, although the show was broadcast on FM in New Zealand and of course it was online so we still picked up listeners in a number of the 201 countries that our online service reaches.

Fingers crossed that the link doesn't go down for our September broadcast on Saturday 5th. As usual Tony Currie will host "Saturday Sounds" live from our studios in Scotland for two hours of interesting and engaging music from around the world, along with your letters, emails and reception reports. 6,070kHz is the frequency, 10kW is the power, Rohrbach, Germany is the TX location and 22:00 to 24:00 UTC is the time. Online at www.radiosix.com and on World FM transmitters in New Zealand.

Email the studio live during the show: tony@radiosix.com

Glenn Hauser logs August 12, 2020

** CANADA. 61.26 MHz, August 12 from before 0300 UT, this site  http://www.livemeteors.com/ is live-monitoring frequency for meteor-scatter pings at the annual peak of the Perseid shower; explains that from the Wash DC area a yagi is aimed at Timmins, Ontario, where there still exists a full-power analog TV station, on channel A3, video offset-plus, i.e. 100 kW CITO-TV per W9WI.com. I have indeed heard a few pings in a few minutes. It also warns that prolonged pings would be something else, and from 0405 I am getting some of those which I suspect are MS-induced sporadic E probably from same station. It seems that on the KiwiSDR roster there are NONE tuning the FM band, or any VHF from 30 to 108 MHz. Chris Mackerell in NZ explains that those SDRs are not designed to do so. A check of our northern sky found it clear for a change but too much Enid light pollution and mosquitoes to watch it very long. 73, (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 11120, Aug 12 at 1417, CNR1 jammer JBA, the only one now, none detected WOOB in the 14s, 13s, 12s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Aug 12 at *0029 just as I tune in via Virginia KiwiSDR, noise blob cuts on air covering 4760-4770, evidence that this mess is just the Radio Progreso transmitter as scheduled but totally out of whack: no trace of program modulation. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. It does not sound like DRM however, and the SDR does not recognize or decode it as such; in fact, if you mash DRM you get a roster of known DRM transmissions, maybe not the current frequency.

Hey, at this very time, Arnie should be in AM on RHC for the mit-week [sic] edition of `DXers Unlimited`, so he could explain it! But he won`t as he never deals with any of countless Cuban technical SNAFUs; instead it`s all about ham DX for the last few minutes of his show. 6000 is suptorted [not ``supported`` as one editor ``corrected`` a previous mention: I explain again that I coined that word to combine suppressed and distorted, which is just what RHC and some other stations provide] while 6145 is sufficient. Meanwhile 5025 Rebelde is undermodulated but readable and not distorted. The 4765 blob is still same around 0130, and by 0400 is off, again matching Progreso scheduling. Mark Coady first reported this anomaly on August 9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Aug 12 at 0052, RHC Spanish is suptorted on it #1 legacy frequency, 11800 undermodulated, and 11670 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, Aug 12 at 0612, ORTM with good S9/+10 signal and even good modulation, in language maybe Bambara, rooster-crow just before today`s Bamako sunrise of 0620; no ACI from 6000 Cuba already off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, Aug 12 at 1406 UT, NDB PN in Ponca City is off; 341-MCW, EI in Enid is on now; earlier at 0623 I could not make it out vs HSNL, but traces of OIN in KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 600 kHz, Aug 12 at 0618 UT, `Coast to Coast AM` from a strong station and a weaker one echoing. WMT Cedar Rapids, Iowa, lost tower during the derecho, and was reported off the air; it`s normally dominant here, lobe aiming thisaway but does not quite make it, days.

https://600wmtradio.iheart.com/content/2020-08-11-legendary-am-600-wmt-radio-cedar-rapids-off-air-after-high-wind-storm/
The other listed C2CAM 600 affiliates in last year`s NRC AM Log are KCOL in CO, KTBB in TX and WREC in TN, all of which could also be heard here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6134.882, Aug 12 at 0614, JBA signal in the variable area where could be either R. Aparecida, Brasil, or Radio Santa Cruz, Bolivia, more likely the former altho it is sometimes on the plus side about 6135.2; normally nonesuch at this nightpart (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey Aug 10 at 1348-1356; I am in too big a hurry before breakfast to note S readings; some are sufficient, some are JBA carriers in presumed spots: none in the 16s; 15165 with fast SAH CCI, 15130, 14980, 14920, 14850, 13835, 13630-rare/new; 12850, 12190; inband 25m skipped; 11460, 11150, 10920, 10870; 9s not checked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 10 at 0550, RHC English check during music: this one is S9+10/20 but suptorted; 6100 is S9+20/30 with less modulation and less distortion; 6145 S9+10/20 with more modulation, less distortion; while 5040 is S9+20/30 and suptorted. On the average, overall, I suppose, a net improvement for now. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. (9830), as reported before, VOT English was missing from the Wed Aug 5 at 2200 broadcast, so no `Letterbox` to be heard circa 2215; not until UT Aug 10 do I get around to checking the podcasts at radio360.eu, only to find that Aug 5 is also missing there! But the mailbag repeats on Saturdays so I listen to the Aug 8 one, to find it at :13 into, and indeed a new one a week after previous, not a 2-week delay, for the first reply is to Italy dated Aug 4; then India, Algeria; Tampa FL --- where our 42-year-old host visited when he was 20 after Florence AL and New Orleans LA; India, Bahrain, but already ``out of time`` finishing after only 8 minutes at :21, and into music, very enjoyable Turkish songs which play continuously past :46, so what happened to all the other features? Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18154-USB, Aug 10 at 1425, the OSOB is KD8BO, concluding contact with an inaudible K0: ``KD8BO USA flag USA, Clarence L Jobe, Sr, New Paris, OH 45347 USA``. This encourages me to check 10 MHz higher:

28298-CW, Aug 10 at 1452, beacon K5TLL/B, relog: ``28.298 K5TLL C HATTIESBURG, MISSISSIPPI # 25W, VERTICAL New Freq 14 Dec 08`` There is another weaker I can`t read within one kHz.

28254.5-CW, Aug 10 at 1501, VVV VVV DE K4JEE/B thrice ... LOUISVILLE: ``28.2545 K4JEE C LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY # 5W, VERTICAL  New 6 Nov 11`` This one is strongest of the lot, no problem copying

28209-CW, Aug 10 at 1506-1514, JBA, N8##L, can`t copy full call but alternates at fast and slow WPM, surely this heard before: ``28.2088 N8PVL I LIVONIA, MICHIGAN # 5W, VERTICAL new 12 Feb 2011``

28281-CW, Aug 10 at 1507, DE W8EH and a grid square, no VVV preceding, another one heard before as newies are seldom: ``28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL``

But no MUF into FM band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2046 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday August 10 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG here direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 10 at 0130 & 0230 on WRMI 7780, both VG S9+10/20 at UTwente; also WRN webcast at 0130.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 10 starting at 0314 on Area 51 webcast of WBCQ 5130, after JL ran way late. Good into a Rochester SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 10 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG at TWR Bonaire; 0329 R. Prague still talking, 0329.5 chopped off for a bit of music, no ID, then WOR.

Also confirmed Mon Aug 10 from a few seconds before 1801 in IRRS 7290 Bulgaria? via UTwente SDR, VG S8/S9+10 but with perpetual warble from 7291 and splash from second adjacents; carrier already on at 1754 tune-in; <1759 JIP some unknown talkshow; <1800 chop for IRRS ID and PO Box Milano, not a sign-on, by Italian accent for a change; very quick FSN headlines and WOR which continues intact for first several minutes. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 1210, August 10 at 0558 UT, a periodic but vain check for 50 kW daytimer WJNL in Michigan cheating again; instead I hear a mix of Spanish mentions of McAllen, Texas, and Coast-to-Coast-AM. Per last year`s NRC AM Log, only 1210 affil is WPHT Philadelphia, while the SS is certainly KUBR San Juan, Tejas in the RGV; right now I am not hearing KGYN OK either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4765, Aug 10 at 0433, noise blob but not decoding as DRM by TWR Bonaire SDR; meant to check earlier, as Mark Coady, Ont., reported on the ODXA iog: ``4765 UNIDENTIFIED at 0205 with DRM-like hash covering +/- 6 to 7 Khz – A total waste of bandwidth Aug 9 Coady-ON – Are the Cubans experimenting with DRM now? If so, why? And, if not, who is?`` --- Progreso sked is nominally/normally 0030-0400 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Commentary: Use DRM on India’s FM Band

All India Radio (AIR) has adopted the Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) standard for digital terrestrial radio broadcasting in MW and SW bands. Thirty-eight high-power DRM transmitters are carrying regular digital transmissions, either in pure digital and/or in simulcast mode.

Sometime back, AIR had issued instructions to increase the transmission hours of such transmitters in pure digital mode. Also each of the four metro cities had been asked to operate one transmitter in Pure Digital Mode. Over 80% of the Indian population was expected to be able to receive radio programs in digital. And this is before most of these transmitters started operating in pure DRM digital mode.

India is currently carrying out trials of ITU-approved standards, including DRM, in the FM band. DRM is fully compatible with the existing FM band transmissions. It utilizes the unused white spaces in the spectrum, technically unavailable for further analog FM expansion.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
03 - 09 August 2020

Solar activity was at very low levels on 03-07 and 09 Aug. Low
levels were reached on 08 Aug as Region 2770 (N23, L=023, class/area
Cso/070 on 06 Aug) produced an isolated C1/Sn flare at 08/0349 UTC.
This was the first C-class flare observed since 29 May. No
Earth-directed CMEs were observed.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
moderate to high levels. Moderate levels were observed on 03-04 Aug.
High levels were observed on 05-09 Aug due to coronal hole high
speed stream (CH HSS) influence. The maximum flux of the period was
2,815 pfu observed at 05/1630 UTC.

Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to active levels. The
period began with the onset of a positive polarity CH HSS. Total
field reached 10 nT at the beginning of the period and solar wind
speed reached a maximum of 754 km/s at 04/0516 UTC. By early on 05
Aug, solar wind speed was in decline and nominal background levels
returned by 07 Aug. The geomagnetic field responded with quiet to
active levels on 03-04 Aug and quiet conditions on 05-09 Aug.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
10 August - 05 September 2020

Solar activity is expected to be very low levels with a slight
chance for isolated C-class flares through 15 Aug. Very low levels
are expected for the rest of the outlook period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 10-11 Aug and again on 01-05 Sep
due to CH HSS influence.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be reach unsettled levels
on 29-31 Aug with active levels likely on 30 Aug due to recurrent CH
HSS effects.

Glenn Hauser logs August 8-9, 2020

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Aug 8 around 2300 check, no sign of LRA36 via several SDRs in Paraguay, Uruguay and Brasil; supposed to be running all-night in a 24-hour test as heard before 1800, but not surprisingly not propagating after dark on so high a frequency at winter-max, nor would it likely at summer-max either during solar-min.

Not checked again until 1454 August 9, and there it is into a Brasil SDR, usual stuff of songs and canned IDs at 1454, 1502. Bruce Churchill advocates an Iceland SDR for LRA36, despite the distance an all-agua Atlantic path, but neither of them is getting it at 1516. Of course, no sign of it direct to here either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey Aug 9 at 1350: JBA carriers, u.o.s.: 13530; 13160 S5-S7, 13130, 13070 S7-S9, 13020, 12870 S3-S6, 12820. No there WOOBs checked before 1400.

At 1432: 12190, 11100, 11070, 10870 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, August 9 at 0536, VOG is S9-S7 with Greek Orthodox chanting, harmonies on a Sunday morning, violating Separation of Church and State, unless WRTH dubbing it ``public`` instead of ``gov`` make a difference; anyhow, always enjoyable music to the secularist. Apparently came on late this Sunday date as Eric Fetters-Walp, near Seattle was not hearing it by 0245. Note that it is always OFF early UT Mondays, our Sunday evenings until I don`t know when (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Aug 8 at 2334, VP talk sounds like a pirate, after some music which seemed to be on 6935. Without a carrier and unfamiliar music, can`t always pinpoint right away.  These say it`s Zeke`s (or Zekey`s) Attic: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,70283.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW kHz, Aug 9 at 0604 UT, Enid NDB EI is JBA amid storm noise: had to listen for a couple minutes to detect it between crashes; this local one is always much weaker than the further Okies on 255, 350 and 515 kHz. Less QRN at definite recheck 1349 UT. So remains on air for a second day after revival, and you may assume continuing until I note another absence.

350-MCW kHz, RG at Will RoGers World Airport, OKC, BTW is not to be confused with another RG nearby on 352 kHz, RarotonGa, Cook Islands, as the west coast DXers have to be careful (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 7340, Sunday August 9 at 0544, again no signal from the hypothetical COVID-19 extension of Eye Radio via Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2046 monitoring: confirmed Saturday August 8 at 1948 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, close to the end at 1951.7 UT which means it started at 1922.7; incredibly good S6-S8 signal via KiwiSDR in Warrenton MO --- that`s because the two towns are only a few km apart; after getting no signal via the SDR I mostly used before in much further Edinburgh IN. Next item a speech by a ham who is also a medical doctor about ham radio and COVID-19; I think the call was K0MD, but at qrz.com that one appears to be a full-time ham.

Also confirmed NEW time, Saturday August 8 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VG to UTwente; immediately preceded by R. Tirana theme, not the IS and no ID break.

Also confirmed UT Sunday August 9 at 0300 on WRMI 5800, good direct, after R. Tirana theme but with an ID break.

Also confirmed UT Sunday August 9 at 0421 mid-break on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, again via the Warrenton MO SDR of KB0FX, but buried in heavy storm noise, much worse reception than in the daytime; so started late circa 0406. I had been checking since 0315. Blitzortung shows a small but strong storm right over the St Louis area. After 0421 axually better reception faraway here but still noisy. Next:

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun Aug 9 at 0015, WTWW-2 webcast with `Theatre Organ [NOT] in the Ozarx` already underway, ending at 0037 so must have started circa 0007 this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17815, Sunday Aug 9 at 1439, S7-S9 but noisy gospel huxter the OSOB, i.e. WHRI on limited schedule. Its own website not to be believed, as Angel 1 on 21610 at this time: ``New Beginnings Church & World Outreach Pastor Ronnie L. Patrick`` and 17815 not starting until 1900, as noted yesterday with dead air in the morning; and no 17815 on Angels 2 or 6. There are NO program listings for Angels 3, 4 or 5; and 6 is shown 24 hours on 7385 except for brief bits on 5920. Don`t you believe that either (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Channel 292 directional antenna plan

Ahoy Matey Glenn -

On Thursday, Cap'n Ric received an email from Channel 292 with the subject line "For all customers using 9670 kHz, or plan to do so." The email reads as follows:

"We are on plan to build a directional beam with some gain
for 9670 kHz. It would be rotatable 360 degrees.
This would enable you to reach your target area with a stronger
signal, while the other areas might get a weaker one.

So, if we build this antenna:
Would you be interested to use it?
Or would you prefer to use the one with more or less non directional character?

Any questions?

We don't have any other information about this.

Beginning August 15 and every third Saturday after that, Channel 292 will broadcast a TRSW program on 9670 kHz at 0200 in the hope that North American listeners will have an opportunity to hear the signal directly. This is with 292's omnidirectional antenna and 10 kW.

TRSW would certainly be very interested in using a directional antenna pointed at North America.

Cap'n Ric heard UBMP at 2305 UTC yesterday, 9670 kHz, on a couple ECNA SDRs so we know the signal can reach the US with the ND antenna. Only the W1NT, Newton, NH SDR had a listenable signal, but Channel 292 was definitely there on the N3JLY SDR in MA.

73 and Arrgghh.

Wolfgang Bueschel: log of remote reception

Log of remote reception in Hiroshima Japan, and
Cape Canaveral Florida state, and
Edmonton Alberta Canada, some SDR rx used remotedly on April 8th:

MYANMAR   5915.980  Myanmar Radio in Burmese via Nay Pyi Daw site

Glenn Hauser logs August 8, 2020

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sat Aug 8 at *1629, LRA36 comes on with fast CW message I am not prepared to copy or record, 1630 into song, 1633 ID for `Corazón Antártico` Wed 11-13 LT show. This is the well-publicized Saturday special supposedly starting at 1700 and staying on for 24 hours. From previous experience we know to tune in at least half an hour early for the runup, so I`ve been listening since 1617 via Brazil remote which gets it at S2-S3. The best one, Pardinho is not available, and Dan Robinson says it`s now by password only. Usual fill of mostly songs, 1645 another canned ID; 1656 plays the Morse code again and this time believe I can copy ``LRA36`` toward the end of it. Then voice IDs in Spanish, German, English and Russian; ``Nacional presenta: Corazón Antártico``, starting a few minutes early, into ``live`` mostly YLs, with G.C. of Esperanza Base, staff credits, and more chatter. I have to switch to a different Brazilian KiwiSDR at 1717, S1-S2 or S3 but more local noise. 1737 break for a song and then more talk. Altho publicized as an SSB test as if that were something new, it still has a residual reduced carrier, obvious when downtuned to 15475-USB.

However, since 1700 I`ve been preferably listening to the LA Opera via KUCO-FM webcast, this week the underperformed ``La Clemenza di Tito`` by Mozart, with a much better $tereo signal. I would need much better reception from LRA36 to try to understand and get anything out of what they are saying, so enough by 1751 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. CNR1 jammer survey, August 8 from 1343, early enough start to be thoro in the WOOB ranges before 1400*. Generally JBA or JBA carriers except as noted: 16600 and stronger 16300 with flutter; 15165 Chinese and fast SAH from VOA Thailand victim; 15130 vs VOA Philippines; 14980, 14920, 14870, 13920 S9/+10, 13835; none just above or below 13 MHz, unusual. The CW South Koreans inhabit.

At 1351: 12550 S8-S9, 12230 S6-S9, 12190 vs CODAR; 25m inband not checked; 11460 & 11440 both S7-S9; 11150 & 11100 JBA carriers; 10820 S2-S3; none in the lower nines by 1357 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 341-MCW, Aug 8 at 0614 UT, Enid`s only ND beacon, EI at Woodring Airport, is back! I check for it every night, and only heard occasionally OIN from Oberlin KS on 341. EI was first missing on July 23 so was off for a semimonth, 16 days (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2046 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday August 8 at 0130 on WRMI-1 7780, which has been restored to air after power surge damage, but NOT on 9955 which is now shown on the sked grid, rather a preacher, previous occupant of this time? so maybe WOR from next week? As also shown on sked, WOR no longer on 5850 & 5010, which had been a prime early airing and the only one across mid-America 315 degree azimuth, on 5850. As usual 7780 is poor here but good to the NE remotes. Skedgrid shows blank spaces for System F 5850 & 5010 at 0130-0200 on UT Wed, Thu and Fri. The latter would be a good replacement for WOR as soon as it`s finished. The bumper off our former spot is for only 15 minutes, so after 0145 there is World Music fill, such as the polka? at 0150.

WOR 2046 also confirmed Saturday August 8 at 1310 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA; 1320 slightly better, sounds like me. Next:

** U S A. 17815, Aug 8 at 1428-1430+, open carrier/dead air, the OSOB, has to be WHRI which is active here weekends only; own sked shows so-called Angel 1 on 17.815 not until 1900 on Sat & Sun. Even this might be an exaggeration like so many other imaginary entries. HFCC shows it registered available 1400-2100 daily, 85 degrees toward Africa. Angel 1 sked shows that service is supposed to be on 21610 at this time merely with LeSEA music fill, where we have not detected it in ages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, Sat Aug 8 at 1513, checking the remotes for KVOH during presumed `Wavescan`: JBA at TWR Bonaire; no signal at TWRs Key West, Boa Vista, Raleigh; but JBA at DR; not at Brasília (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. RF-31, Aug 8 around 1500 UT, minor tropo boost from Kansas allows KDCU Derby (Wichita) to decode briefly with infomercial in Spanish, after having spotted Bad signals on 8 and 10 likely also Wichita into my broken UHF/VHF antenna (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14895.6-USB, Aug 8 at 1358, 2-way in Spanish discussing putas, and whistling (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

re missing CNR/SoH TWN channel listing on Aoki Nagoya Circle list:
The Japanese chap Aoki editor can only react to recently appeared new SWL observations, - where else should he get this information from?

CNR jamming outlet fqs are not requested / registered basicly in ITU Geneva lists.

Glenn Hauser logs August 7-8, 2020

** ALGERIA [non]. 13820, Friday August 7 just as I tune in RTA via FRANCE via UTwente SDR, at 1827.5 English segment is starting, about a female singer named Aishi(?). Good -60-70 dBm with self-QRM only from the beeping. 1832 switches to general info about that American style of music, jazz, with clips of ``Lewis`` Armstrong in ``Wonderful World`` and ``Hello, Dolly``, and others from New Orleans. 1837.5 just music. 1838.5 into Spanish, `Africa Hoy` about the Gran Museo in Egypt. 1849 French ID as R. Algerie Internationale, music; 1851.5 brief Qur`an reminding God that it is Great; 1854 bit of Arabic talk, pop music to 1859* chopoff. Maybe the Q was for vespers as Algiers LSS was 1848, close enough? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. Correxion: the offset from 11780 to 11731 and 11829 is 49 not 39 kHz; fixed:

11731 and weaker 11829 approx., August 6 at 2346 suspicious blobs with no readable modulation, but they happen to be ~49 kHz equidistant from: 11780 RNA which is S9+20/30 and distorted; it has been a spur-producer before. The lower one QRMs Romania in Spanish on 11730. Then I try to detect them on some S and N American SDRs but cannot; even at Braslia 11780 is not very strong by groundwave (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 7730, Aug 7 at 1332, CNR1 jammer at S4-S6, confirmed as such by // 13130 et al., shortly. Aoki shows SOH & jamming up to 24h on 7730, Mandarin except for diversion to the Cantonese hour at 15-16. Still seems odd for anything but WRMI to be heard here. Fortunately, when it is on evening and night, we never have any QRM.

CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 7 at 1336, mostly JBA to JBA carriers except here S-ed: 13130 S5-S8, 13020, 12500, 12190 S7-S9 vs CODAR;

1341: 13835 with self-echo from two and // the WOOBs as CNR1; 14850; 11460, 11440.

1346: 11170 S4-S6, 11150, 11070, 10820 S2-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. At 1650 this Friday August 7, I remember that Uncle Bill`s shows are now scheduled on 9670 from Channel 292, Germany, 16-18 UT --- UTwente and e.g. Lisbon SDR have nothing but JBA carriers. At least there is no CCI or ACI. By 1742 some music audible at both, better at UTwente, but vs lots of noise level. UTw improving, -75 to -85 dBm. 1750: at UTwente: Seems more splash from faroff 9685 Urumqi bigsig than from 9665 Pyongyang. As I posted step by step on the WOR iogroup. Bill Tilford replies:

``Thanks Glenn, We're going to give this one more try next week just to exclude a bad day at ionosphere rock, if the results are similar we'll then test a few hours later. We will be keeping our transmissions on 6070 either way, this is a possible addition rather than a substitute. --Bill``

Just now saw this at 2220 -- checking 9670 on UTwente, nothin but noise. Glenn

``NEWS FLASH - REPEAT TEST OF 9670 TONITE!!
After conferring with Channel 292, we are going to do repeat tests of 9670 kHz tonite as follows:
2100-2200 UTC - From the Isle of Music
2300-0000 UTC - Uncle Bill's Melting Pot

Another program, Radio Waves International, will be in the middle at 2200-2300. Next week there will be a repeat test from 1600-1800 to rule out propagation and/or technical anomalies.

At 2325, 9670 at UTwente still nothing but noise, skipover late at night. At Maine SDR, music S4-S6 still noisy. Somewhat listenable. At OK, JBA carrier at 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, August 8 at 0104, song of some sort, checked on a Rochester remote after tip in FRW that Radio Nova would be here from 0030 for almost an hour. Poor noisy signal and fading by 0115. But 0123 NOVA in CW and SSTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Friday August 7 at 2202 NO signal from VOT English checked at TWR/DR SDR, nothing but NSS RTTY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2046 monitoring: confirmed first WRMI airing, Friday August 7 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, VP signal here but modulating; good at TWR Dominican Republic KiwiSDR. Next, to confirm changes as per sked grid, and with 7780 back on the air:

** U S A. 7780, August 7 at 2156, JBA signal signifies that WRMI-1 is finally back on air after a few days missing. Now I check WRMI FB:

``WRMI Radio Miami International
Yesterday at 11:44 AM · [EDT? August 6]

Dear WRMI Listeners: Earlier this week we experienced a severe thunderstorm in the area of our transmitter site in Okeechobee (just after Hurricane Isaias passed by). Our power lines were affected by the storm. We did not lose power fortunately, but there was a power surge which blew out some lights in our building and also blew out some parts in our Transmitter #1 which operates on 7780 kHz. Our engineers have been working on this for a few days now and have replaced a number of components in the transmitter, but it still needs more work to get it back on the air. In the meantime, we are broadcasting all of our programs that are normally on 7780 kHz from 2000-0200 UTC on the alternate frequency of 15770 kHz. (This is another one of our regular frequencies.) Both of these frequencies are on antennas directed at 44 degrees. We will air these programs on 15770 kHz until we get the 7780 kHz transmitter back on the air, which we hope will be tomorrow Friday August 7.

We are very sorry for this situation, but our engineers are working as quickly as possible to get 7780 kHz back on the air. This transmitter is normally on the air 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and has been on this schedule for over a year now, so it really needs a bit of downtime for technical maintenance. Thanks for your understanding.``

``WRMI Radio Miami International
5 hrs · [ago as of 2340 UT Aug 7]

Good news! 7780 kHz is back on the air. Our engineers Don Frish and
Harry Robbins have been working on this for a few days now, and it's
back in operation. Thanks for your patience everybody``

While I`m on disgraced FB, any other news from WRMI? Yes:

``WRMI Radio Miami International · July 14 ·
Longtime listeners to WYFR shortwave (the station that was here before WRMI took over in 2013) may remember Evelyn Marcy, who was for many years the assistant to Dan Elyea, the WYFR Station Manager. We are sorry to report that Evelyn passed away this morning due to complications from an operation. A number of Marcy family members have worked at WYFR and/or WRMI, including Evelyn's husband Ed and her sons Scott and Todd. Scott currently works as a control room operator at WRMI. Below is a photo of Scott and Evelyn at one of our WRMI Christmas parties.``

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Aug 8 at 0000, WBCQ webcast starting `AAAWWW` with traditional version of ``WTO``; interjecting that ``its time to get nasty``. Starting topix are: radio matters: early history of ham and broadcasting 100+ years ago; the AT&T/Bell phone monopoly; 0022 lamenting living in a credit economy; 0023 call from Mr Mike in Massachusetts that the Near-Fest for October has been cancelled --- hamfest in NH, I think, morphing into COVID-19 discussion past 0030. 0039 AW says they are ``quadri-casting` on 7490, 6160, 5130 and 3265, so I check them on the Rockport, Maine remote and indeed they can all be heard well enough, so I listen on 3265 for a while till it cuts me off. Exact frequencies not measured. More phone calls: 0040 from Ramsey, not heard from in a long time; 0046 Kevin in Ohio, first-time caller but long-time listener; is a fan of Ken Durchinsky(?) the preacher just before on 7490 who thinx WINB is on 9625, and also of Hal Turner just after AAAWWW; 0050 from Tony who hopes A&A will appear at the next Winterfest, but Allan doubts it will take place; how many SW transmitters does WBCQ have? Six, which means there is only one extra when all are on the air. 0055 switches to email, Jason in Halifax who disses Bell Canada and CBC; Chris in Connecticut where the power is still out. Just a bit of time left for overt vote-for-Trump urge; quick prayer and JIP Turner 0100+ already underway.

I`m not making this up, as John Carver matches with his notes:

``Tonight's show started on time on 5130, 6160 and 7490. They're using the old version of WTO this evening. Allan and Angela in the studio opening with some very political comments and then going into stories about radio in the twenties and thirties. Then into talk of telephones. Difficult to get a good signal on any of the three frequencies this evening. Again an agitated Angela.

Phone call at 0022 from Mr. Mike to tell us that the fall Nearfest has been cancelled. After that Allan announced that they were also broadcasting on 3265. He also said that the superstation was working and airing the WLC programming.

Phone call at 0040 from Ramsey. Another phone call at 0046 from a gentleman thanking them for being on the air and stating how much he was enjoying the program. At 0050 a phone call from Tony Straka asking when they would next make an appearance at the Winterfest.

Reading of emails at 0055 and closing prayer at 0059. Program was off the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Propagation News – 9 August 2020

The week started with a geomagnetic disturbance caused by a high-speed stream from a coronal hole, which moved past the Earth at a speed in excess of 500 kilometres per second. This was not predicted by NOAA, but it was from a long coronal hole limb that stretched towards the solar equator. It pushed the Kp index to four in the early hours of Monday, causing a depletion of the F2 layer that impacted HF for much of the morning. MUFs over a 3,000km path struggled to get up to 14MHz until 0930hrs. Meanwhile, we are seeing some more activity on the sunspot front. A new Cycle 25 region numbered 2770 rotated into view, pushing the sunspot number to 13 and the solar flux index to 73. While this isn’t too exciting, it is another step in the right direction. This sunspot region has been emitting a lot of B-class solar flares and we expect that to continue. Next week, NOAA predicts that the solar flux index will return to 69-71 with a maximum Kp index of two. At the time of writing, there were no coronal holes looking to threaten Earth.

The sporadic E season is now well past its peak, but there is always hope for openings on 10m, especially with high-efficiency modes like FT8. We expect daytime F2-layer MUFs to peak above 14MHz, with occasional openings on 18MHz. Night-time MUFS over a 3,000km path should remain above 10MHz after paths on 20m close at around 2200hrs.

VHF and up:

The VHF highlight next week is the annual Perseids meteor shower, peaking on the 12th with a huge ZHR of 100. This is the big opportunity to try meteor scatter on digimodes, with a very good chance of results. To avoid disappointment, read up on the procedures, bands and modes before you dive in.

It’s a mixed selection of propagation weather this week. The south and east had some tropo options last week and will do again into early next week, with a particularly strong indication from northern Britain across the North Sea at the end of this weekend. It also looks likely that a developing ridge from high pressure over the Atlantic will give a return of tropo potential at the end of the week, especially in the north and west. In between these two tropo periods the weather is essentially unsettled, with a tendency to produce slow-moving areas of showers. It’s quite likely that some will be heavy and thundery. This bodes well for GHz rain scatter opportunities, especially from the heavier showers.

It’s still worth a shout out for sporadic E, which is not over yet, although events are harder to find using CW or SSB. It’s not looking like a good set of jet stream charts, so as we said earlier FT8 is a good first place to look.

Moon declination is positive and rising this week so peak Moon elevations and visibility windows will follow suit. Combined with falling path losses, it’s an improving week for EME. 144MHz sky noise is low, peaking on Friday at 500K. (rsgb.org)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
27 July - 02 August 2020

Solar activity was very low throughout the period. Three spotted
regions populated the disk at various times during the summary
period. Region 2767 (S21, L=200, class/area Hsx/120 on 26 Jul)
maintained an H-type configuration through the period and was quiet
and stable. Region 2768 (N26, L=111, class/area Hsx/020 on 30 Jul)
formed on the disk on 28 Jul and decayed to plage by 02 Aug. It was
quiet and stable. Region 2769 (N26, L=059, class/area Axx/010 on 02
Aug) quietly rotated onto the disk.

An eruptive prominence was observed off the SE limb about midday on
31 Jul. A slow-moving CME was subsequently observed, but was
determined to not have an Earth-directed component. No other CMEs or
activity of note was observed during the summary period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

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

Geomagnetic field activity was at quiet levels through midday on 02
Aug when unsettled activity was observed due to positive polarity CH
HSS influence. Solar wind observations indicated nominal conditions
through about 02/0600 UTC when a CIR, in advance of a positive
polalarity CH HSS, became evident in the data. Wind speeds increased
from about 310 km/s to near 530 km/s, total field increased to 12 nT
and the Bz component reached -10 nT. The geomagnetic field reacted
with mostly unsettled conditions.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
03 August - 29 August 2020

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels 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 be at normal to moderate levels throughout the outlook
period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at unsettled to active
levels through 03 Aug with a chance for G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm
levels due to recurrent CH HSS effects. Quiet to unsettled levels
are expected on 04 Aug as HSS effects persist. Unsettled levels are
expected once again on 29 Aug. Quiet levels are expected to prevail
for the remainder of the period, 05-28 Aug.
