Glenn Hauser logs May 14-15, 2022

** CHINA. 15800, 15760, 15360, May 15 at 1440, CNR1 jammers with bigsigs S7 to S9+10; Aoki shows all three are occupied only by Sound of Hope and jammers, all other stations prudently avoiding them at all hours. Also weaker but not synch, Chinese on 15110, which is CNR1 jamming against VOA Chinese via Philippines this hour only. At 1443 I find a couple more: 14980 JBA and 15920 S8/S9, also nothing but jammers and SOH per Aoki. 15 MHz is obviously the current OWF from East Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, May 15 at 0141, RHC Spanish S9/+20 undermodulated // 9535. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 15 at 0136, quick check of The Mighty KBC gets rock and Eric at S9+25/30 via EAST GERMANY, rivalling 9975 KVOH. Just another too much in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, May 15 at 0039, pirate S8/S9+5 vs high storm noise level -- HSNL, ``Games People Play`` and segué another song. 0109 YL ``Greatest hits of all time, Ball Smacker``, and tenpins SFX, now S9+15 between storm crashes. Off by 0147 check. Of the three simulpirates, this is #2 in overall quality. More: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97162.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, May 15 at 0101, S9+10 pirate with electric guitar; 0103 retune, DJ has spoken a bit and SSTV, 0104 music, ``Let`s Speak English, But Not My Salad[?]``, more electric guitar. 0127 SSTV is ending? then some more, 0128 music. 0148 SSTV? beepery sounds like looping past 0150 when DJ grunts, ``I Wanna Be a DJ`` song still playing until 0200 when there are some more noises unseeming SSTV, then off, or dead air as I am about to QRT. Of the three simulpirates, this is #1 in strength and quality.

These say Wasteland Radio, did stop at 0200*, with noisy SSTV images: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97163.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920 USB, May 15 at 0102, third simulpirate and #3 in quality, S7 song vs HSNL; 0117 ``Time After Time``; 0122 off? No, was pause or fade. 0147 still on with weak music. WDOG, per: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97164.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9730, UT Sun May 15 at 0139, classical `cello music, S9+15/30, 0140 applause and Romanian announcement. This is the 00-02 Galbeni to E NAm. Alan Roe`s Music on SW shows `Radio Concert Season` during the entire 01 hour, // 7420. More in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut; wish I could keep listening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 15 at 0500 UT, UR1 via WRMI as I break away from the WBOB DX test to another SDR, Maryland. Not usual `Ukraine: Security Issue` war news review, but JIP originally live press conference about winning the Eurovision Song Contest. Mixture of English and Ukrainian, translations back and forth and rather frustrating when the English is interrupted. At 0508 ``Happy Birthday`` song in English; still gong past 0513 when I resume WBOB. At 0534 recheck, now `U:SI` is playing later in the hour than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Saturday May 14 at 1930 on WRMI 15770, S9 into Maryland SDR. Also confirmed at 1930 on WRN webcast to N America. Also confirmed starting at 1931 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 steady into nearby SDR.

Not confirmed UT Sunday May 15 at 0030 on WRMI 7780 --- rather last week`s 2137 playing. Oh2, probably my fault, missed uploading to System D server. Fortunately this the first? airing by that, so 2138 is now ready for UT Mon 0030 on 7780, and UT Thu 0130 on 5010 ---

and as I check the skedgrid find a NEW airing on D, UT Friday 0330 on 7780. And another new one without notice, Tuesday 2330 on System G 9395 - an hour after System B on 9955, jammed by Cuba.

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 15 at 0321 about 3 minutes into so started circa 0318 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 direct vs HSNL.

Also confirmed Sunday May 15 ending at 1356 on WMRI via Channel 292, Germany, 9670, so must have started a bit early at 1327; and immediately into Russian. S5/S7 into NW Eire SDR. Next:

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

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun May 15 at 0145, WRMI with `Encore` classical music, into Chinese opera, ``Liza Lim flies to the moon``, S9+15/40 atop HSNL. Due to all my pirate and other tuning this hour, I`m missing it! Must get next play UT Monday 0200 on 5950. 5850 has some hum unlike 5800, 5950. Now on 5950 is more music in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut, which I cannot possibly also audition, TRSW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9, May 15 at 0119, JBA carrier, must be WBCQ due to offset, but ailing very underpowered; vs S9+35/45 ACI de 6165 RHC. WBCQ refuses to deal with that clash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, May 15 at 0152, checking for uteblaaps but none heard direct, just S9 HSNL; *0155 WBCQ starts IS & ID loop buried in the noise for Radio Angela to follow. Uncle Bill tells us May 15:

``Over the next several days, WBCQ's Radio Angela will be migrating from 4790 kHz to a previous WBCQ frequency, 5130 kHz. WBCQ hopes to maintain the same coverage area with this move, perhaps even slightly greater in the US and Canada as west coast CODAR will no longer be a factor. During the week of May 16-22, listeners might want to check both frequencies during broadcast hours (typically 0200-04xx UTC). -Bill Tilford, Lafayette, Indiana``

Not mentioned are the uteblaaps, a last straw for 4790. I have advocated for getting off the 4-5 MHz band completely, especially in summer, as even without the QRM, the storm QRN level is intolerable; should move to a higher band, even 11 MHz, for greater coverage and less noise. This has been futile (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun May 15, WTWW-2 webcast despite scheduled from 0000, `Theatre Organ Under the Arch`, again no sign of it at these chex: 0015, 0037, rather hamstuff; nor direct on 5085: 0107 rock and ID from what used to be a cow pasture. O well, one less choice in the Saturday Evening SW Music Glut.

9940, BTW was not to be heard earlier in afternoon. `The Voice of Freedom` for Ukraine, seems quite irregular, at whim of Ted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Sun May 15 at 0132, KVOH inbooms VG at S9+30/40, wideband near hifi, with a bit of jazz, then Pat Conrad announcement during `Saturday Night Jazz Session` --- one more in the Music Glut. He`s going to play some Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt and Coleman Hawkins, but first:: proselytizing quoting Hebrews, etc. 0134 finally music. He just ruined his own show, driving away rational listeners (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 600 kHz, UT Sun May 15 at 0414, S7 via Athens GA SDR, shared with Dene Lynneberg, NZ: WBOB Jaxonvil FL is DX-testing again, with some ABBA. 0417 says running 20 KW now, different than last night, asking for emails. 0418 Monkees, 0419 cutoff or fade - certainly weaker than when was 50 kW. CPC said this time WBOB would be running DX test noises, sweeps, Morse IDs, etc. I do hear sweeps upward thrice at 0421.

We have heavy lightning/storming nearby in Garfield County but not right here altho some flashes have been visible overhead. Yet I try for WBOB direct on the E/W longwire into R75: At 0425 HSNL; 0427 slow sweep up? 0429 more definite upsweeps in the QRM & QRN, so I can say I did get WBOB direct. Never heard any Morse IDs; were they ever emitted? Those would be best for DX test definite logging.

Back to Athens SDR: 0432 rock music with cutouts; 0435 dead air; 0435.6 music; 0440 outro as Elton John, ND 20 kW, now different than last night, asking reports; muses about the mystery of daytime skywave. Currently working on ground loop problem. 0443 sweeps up, 0444 song; 0447 different sweeps; 0500 Sinatra ``The End is Near``. I tune away for Ukraine, q.v. 0514 recheck, says WBOB is back to full power and will be on a few minutes longer, music, and I quit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 15 at 0116 UT, dead air atop presumed still weak KWKH, i.e. KLEY Wellington KS in its newest open-carrier service. By 0202, KWKH has built up, but still vs KLEY carrier, making a fast SAH. Our latest sunset of c. 0152 will be attained in less than a month, early June.

KLEY`s official SR/SS times in UT for May: 1115/0130 UT; June: 1115/0145. That won`t stop them from running the 250 watt day power all night instead of ONE watt, modulated or not (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sent to Robert Conrad, Weekend Radio, WCLV Cleveland:

``Weekend Radio disappearing May 15 at 7:09 PM

Bob, I have to inform you that your carriage list is VERY out of date: https://www.ideastream.org/programs/weekend-radio/carriage-list Look at that - still dated 2017!!! There are bound to be changes over a 5-year period, no matter what. Please have Carmelita or someone get it up to date.

We missed our Saturday night chances on WCLV and KUCO, so were planning on getting it at noon CDT Sunday on WUOT which we have done before as a backup. But it`s gone. Not on their schedule anytime either, now This American Life. Surely affiliates are obliged at least as a courtesy to notify the program when it is canceled (or added). But this can hardly be relied upon, as I have found in keeping track of stations carrying my own program, and when.

Another source would be great except it is not kept up to date either: First you are prompted to set up your preferred timezone: http://publicradiofan.com/cgibin/program.pl?programid=682

I have looked for other chances in the rest of Sunday and the only one I can find, still showing on own schedule, is KTXK Lubbock, 6 pm CDT -- (vs 60 Minutes on TV). I do NOT find W.R. on the current skeds of WBAA, WSND, WNMU, KVLU, KEDM!

I have not investigated the other Saturday stations, as it`s too late to hear this week`s program there should they exist.

It`s a shame that such a great show has been dropped by several stations. Hope you will keep on keeping on anyway. You might also consider availablizing it on demand, or podcast via WCLV site.

Best wishes, Glenn Hauser, Enid OK`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 15 at 0615, NO signal from R. Vanuatu on 3 x 3945. I had been checking it every night but did not do so on May 14 when this was later reported, so our third-harmonic spree suspends:

```Radio Vanuatu seems to be out of the air today 14-05 --- Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain: VANUATU, Radio Vanuatu, Port Vila seems to be out of the air today. Not even carrier heard on 7260 at 0550 and not even carrier heard on 11835 from 0600. Also checked via SDR Kiwi remote receiver in New Zealand, no signal on 3945, 5040, 7260 and 11835`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 28438 USB, May 14 at 2148, weak ham; and then on 28465 USB, another calling CQ 10, but nothing heard on either next few minutes, fadeouts? I mention merely to remind that 10m even seeming dead can pass thru a few signals if sought. However, DXMAPS shows a great many N/S paths, TE contacts. These probably were from South America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report despatched at 1940 UT May 15

WBCQ R Angela moving from 4790 to 5130

Over the next several days, WBCQ's Radio Angela will be migrating from 4790 kHz to a previous WBCQ frequency, 5130 kHz. WBCQ hopes to maintain the same coverage area with this move, perhaps even slightly greater in the US and Canada as west coast CODAR will no longer be a factor. During the week of May 16-22, listeners might want to check both frequencies during broadcast hours (typically 0200-04xx UTC).

A cuore aperto: Radiomarelli 10A05 (1947)

Avevo detto che avrei presentato un accessorio radio molto particolare ma non ho avuto il tempo di rimetterlo in funzione e così, per proseguire con le radio MARELLI, ho pensato di mostrare proprio il diretto discendente della 8A05 illustrata la scorsa settimana.

LOGO RADIOMARELLI OCCHIO MAGICO 6E5 04 SCALA PARLANTE LUNGHE - MEDIE E TROPICALI ONDE CORTE 31 - 13 METRI

Presentato sul mercato per la stagione 1947/1948, il MARELLI 10A05 è un apparecchio dal design completamente rinnovato e per nulla somigliante al classico "fagiolo", tipico apparecchio del dopoguerra. Il circuito è classicamente supereterodina 5 valvole più indicatore di sintonia 6E5: 6SA7 convertitrice, 6NK7 amplificatrice di MF, 6Q7 amplificatrice di bf, detector e agc, 6V6 amplificatrice finale di BF e 5Y3 raddrizzatrice.

VOLUME INTERRUTTORE E COMANDO TONO ALTO MEDIO E BASSO COMMUTATORE GAMMA
SINTONIA INDICATORE DI SINTONIA TELAIO  MATRICOLA

Il valore di media frequenza è 455 Khz e proprio sulla amplificazione di MF è il caso di spendere qualche parola in più: come detto poc'anzi, la valvola amplificatrice di MF è una 6NK7 e non la classica 6K7 e questo è dovuto ad un motivo legato alla necessità di avere una buona amplificazione del segnale ma non volendo aggiungere una valvola in alta frequenza e tantomeno spingere troppo l'amplificazione della valvola convertitrice per non introdurre rumore di fondo, i progettisti pensarono di impiegare il pentodo 6NK7 che, rispetto alla classica 6K7 ha pendenza più ripida ed un coefficiente di amplificazione maggiore.

MARCA - MODELLO E DISPOSIZIONE VALVOLE TALLONCINO GARANZIA INDICAZIONI E RACCOMANDAZIONI
ALIMENTATORE E RADDRIZZATRICE INGRESSO FONOGRAFICO INGRESSO ANTENNA E PRESA DI TERRA 

Le gamme coperte sono ben sette; onde lunghe da 1000 a 2000 metri, onde medie da 180 a 600 metri, onde "tropicali" (definizione utilizzata in quegli anni) da 40 a 110 metri e poi le onde corte con le bande dei 31, 25, 19, 16 e 13 metri.

CONDENSATORE VARIABILE CIRCUITO DI AEREO - FILTRO DI INGRESSO - COMPENSATORI TARATURA PER AEREO INTERSTADIO ED OSCILLATORE 

La scala parlante è divisa in due settori separati che riportano, sul lato destro le gamme di onde corte e sul sinistro, onde lunghe, medie e tropicali. I comandi sono tutti sul pannello frontale e comprendono volume, interruttore e tono, commutatore di gamma e sintonia che in questo apparecchio è tornata ad impiegare il tipico condensatore variabile a doppia sezione (aereo ed oscillatore).

TELAIO ESTRATTO CONNETTORE OCTAL PER ALIMENTAZIONE ED USCITA BF INTERRUTTORE DI ACCENSIONE
TELAIO - FRONTALE - ...VALVOLE FIVRE... ELETTROLITICO ORIGINALE 

La visualizzazione della gamma prescelta è ottenuta tramite un diaframma trasparente, retroilluminato, che è messo in movimento tramite un sistema a funicella e puleggia, solidale con il perno del commutatore e che rende visibile la gamma tramite una finestrella sulla scala parlante.

SENZA VALVOLE LATO COMPONENTI IMPEDENZA AF
COMMUTATORE TONO E COMPONENTI ORIGINALI ANCORA COMPONENTI ORIGINALI COMMUTATORE TONO - COMMUTAZIONE CIRCUITO DI PLACCA - 

Il controllo di tono è affidato ad una serie di condensatori e resistenze posti nel circuito di placca della finale di BF e che, tramite un commutatore, vengono inclusi o esclusi dal circuito stesso, determinando la variazione di tonalità. L'indicatore di sintonia è una 6E5 con zoccolo americano pre octal e questo ci fa pensare a rimanenze di magazzino o a difficile reperibilità di valvole dato che la 6E5 risale alla metà degli anni 30 e cioè, a circa 10 anni prima.

CONDENSATORI MARELLI STADIO DI ALTA FREQUENZA BOBINE ONDE LUNGHE ED ONDE MEDIE
BOBINE ONDE DA 110 A 25 METRI BOBINA 16 METRI BOBINA 13 METRI 

Sul retro si trovano le prese di antenna e terra e l'ingresso fonografico; il telaio è montato inclinato e viene facilmente estratto tramite un semplice sistema a slitta che ne rende molto agevole l'estrazione dal mobile. Altra prerogativa di questo apparecchio è lo stadio ad alta frequenza, costruito molto bene, con bobine  raggruppate a seconda delle gamme  e schermate tra di loro tramite schermi metallici saldati al telaio, il commutatore è a 4 sezioni, ognuna all'interno di una schermatura, esistono ben due trappole anti interferenze e viene fatto uso di compensatori sia di precisione che ceramici per ogni singolo stadio, gli stessi che troviamo nel lussuosissimo modello 8A28, del 1940.

COMPENSATORI DI PRECISIONE SEZIONE AEREO - COMMUTATORE - SEZIONE INTERSTADIO
COMMUTAZIONE ONDE CORTISSIME TARATURE - COMPENSATORI CERAMICI OSCILLATORE LOCALE - COMPENSATORE DI PRECISIONE -

Gli avvolgimenti sono eseguiti con rame argentato ed ogni bobina è realizzata in bakelite segno, questo, del voler realizzare un buon ricevitore, con un valido gruppo di alta frequenza, realizzato con criteri professionali. I componenti sono forse il tallone di Achille di questo apparecchio poiché molti di essi risalgono al periodo prebellico e quindi montati già vecchi, a parte i condensatori a mica utilizzati nell'alta frequenza, costruiti all'epoca del nostro apparecchio.

ALTOPARLANTE E FILTRO TENSIONE ANODICA RESISTENZA PER CADUTA DI TENSIONE TRASFORMATORE DI USCITA BF

Comunque, il 90% dei componenti è ancora originale e funzionante e rimarrà al suo posto. La costruzione è ben fatta, razionale e solida, cablaggio e disposizione dei componenti sono razionali e funzionali; il trasformatore di alimentazione con la raddrizzatrice si trovano sul fondo del mobiletto, lontano dal telaio per evitare ronzio indotto ed il collegamento al telaio è ottenuto tramite un cordone munito di connettore octal. Il cambio tensioni adatta l'apparecchio ad ogni possibile rete, partendo, pensate, da 85 volts!! L'altoparlante è ormai soltanto dinamico e l'impedenza di filtro è ottenuta con una parte dell'avvolgimento del trasformatore di uscita.

CONO ALTOPARLANTE ESTRAZIONE TELAIO - SISTEMA A SLITTA - 

All'atto della ricezione, il nostro MARELLI 10A05 si comporta molto bene; è selettivo e sensibile con buona resa audio, grazie all'efficiente 6V6 ed al filtro di tonalità, ben progettato. Sulle corte non ha problemi di intermodulazione ed anche sulle frequenze più elevate, la sua sensibilità è più che buona. Spero e speriamo che questo particolare MARELLI sia stato di interesse per tutti gli amici appassionati.
