Glenn Hauser logs May 20-21, 2018

** CHINA. 11460, May 21 at 1341 JBA talk, matching CNR1 jammer on much stronger 11540, the latter vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, while Aoki/NDXC shows *jammed Sound of Hope, Taiwan, on 11459.844 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, May 20 at 2207, this is today`s missing RHC frequency, where something is always wrong: supposed to be in French from 2200. Plenty of others on band in Spanish: 11760, 11840, 11860, 12000; and 11700 Portuguese..

6060, May 21 at 0619, now this is the missing frequency, leaving off-frequency-minus carrier from Brasil, while RHC English maintains 6000, 6100, 6165.. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13901, 13835, 13767, 13633, 13567, 13499, 13437, 13363, 13300, very approx., May 21 at 1319-1335+, RHC spurblobs out of 13700 transmitter are back! Awful wobble with BFO, but closest ones somewhat clear when tuned in FM or even AM modes. Fundamental 13700 is S9+40, and 13767 is S9+25. All with signature F# above C-middle tone, and that is about all one can detect at the furthest ones out.

Checking almost every morning, last date these appeared was April 16, exactly one pentaweek ago. I *knew* they would come back sometime. Something`s always (very!) wrong at RHC.

During this hour separate RHC is also on 13740, and from 13700 produces a leapfrog on 13780 at 1320 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935.666-AM, May 21 at 0058, very off-frequency pirate music, S6-S8 vs storm noise as loud. These logs from *0051 to 0122* say ID at 0116 was Man Cave Radio; wrong frequency as subject, ``6535.8``:,42749.0.html

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1930 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 20 at 1923, the newish 1900 airing on WRMI 9395, poor-fair. Not confirmed, Sunday May 20 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, as BS continues (should I delete 9330 from my schedules? Not shown up for a while, but has returned before and WBCQ will not tell me what to expect). 

Confirmed UT Monday May 21 at 0130 on WRMI, 5850 VG, 7780 poor. Also confirmed UT Monday May 21 from 0303 on Area 51 webcast (after an 0302 false start of HRI, and a canned ``technical difficulties`` announcement); also poorly audible at 0318 check on WBCQ 5129.82. Also confirmed UT Monday May 21 at 0330 on WRMI, 9955, JBA. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1931?]
Tue 2130   WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1931?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 9455, May 20 at 1923, 2201 chex, JBA carrier, presumed still secret QRP WRMI transmission as IDed previously. As of May 21, there is still no mention of 9455 anywhere on the WRMI transmission or program grids at
9395 is always on with much stronger signal: Sun May 20 at 1923 with WOR; 2201 with Oldies at S9+10.

9955, Sunday May 20 at 2207, AWR Wavescan in progress, with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Skedgrid shows this hour is supposed to be // 5950, but VP signal there is not // (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 5050, UT Monday May 21 at 0104, finally catch WWRB on its rarely active summer frequency instead of 90m --- music and then overmodulated/distorted gospel huxter, horrible sounding, also cutting out, S9+20/30, giving contact info but so bad I can`t copy it accurately even tho partly spelt fonetikaly, P O Box 1471?, --- North Carolina 28456; email sounds like wdav – something Definite ZIP 28456 is Riegelwood NC, in the SE part of the state. 

I soon reconfirm it`s pointless to consult which at the top still claims to be on 3215/3185, and no program schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, May 21 at 0616, WRNO is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
