 "About Radio Rasant
Since September 2000 there’s a group of students at the Urban Secondary School Sundern, who produce one hour radio programmes. These programmes are relayed afterwards locally on FM and via cable and around the world on shortwave and in the internet as well. To reach this high quality we are supported by several German and foreign broadcasting stations, offices and companies. The topics are chosen from social, technical, literal, cultural, musical and economical affairs and as well as school affairs."

W4HM Solar Cycle 24 Update and Solar Cycle 25 Forecast- Short and to the point.

Solar minimum will begin later in 2019-2020 and may last longer than any previous solar cycle in the 20th century. When solar cycle 25 finally gets underway it could be the weakest since the middle of the 19th century. Another “Dalton” type lesser grand solar minimum may occur with a corresponding cooling of earth’s climate.

This would negate anthropogenic climate change (harmful man induced global warming) if it were occurring, (((((WHICH IT ISN’T.)))))

For more “TRUTH” on the socialist lie of anthropogenic climate change (harmful man induced global warming) check out https://wattsupwiththat.com and http://www.climatedepot.com

On February 1, 2008 I forecasted that solar cycle 24 would be the smallest solar cycle in the past 100 years. That forecast verified. I also forecasted that solar cycle 25 would be almost non nonexistent SSN <50.

GLOBAL (HF-MF 3000-30000 kHz- 300-3000 kHz) RADIO WAVE PROPAGATION CONDITIONS EXPECTED-

Radio wave propagation condition “trend” on May 20, 2019- STEADY.

Radio wave propagation condition “trend” on May 21, 2019- STEADY.

Radio wave propagation condition “trend” on May 22, 2019- STEADY.

We are now moving into the summer northern hemisphere HF-MF radio wave propagation season.

The 14000- 30000 kHz frequency range closes later due to more sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is lower than in the southern hemisphere as heating in the F2 layer of the ionosphere is higher and the layer ions less concentrated.

Almost daily during the northern hemisphere summer season you will find that the 25600- 26100 kHz and 28000-29700 kHz frequency ranges will open via short north-south and east-west propagation paths via sporadic E (Es). Also when multiple sporadic E (Es) clouds form and line up favorably much longer propagation paths open up on east-west paths. And last but not least north-south propagation paths occur across the equator via trans equatorial propagation (TEP).

We are now moving into the winter southern hemisphere HF-MF radio wave propagation season.
The approximate 11000- 30000 kHz frequency range closes sooner due to less sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is higher than in the southern hemisphere as the F layer of the ionosphere is lower in height and the ions more concentrated.
The approximately 2000-10000 kHz frequency range often stays open for DX all throughout the day due to a weaker D and E layer and therefore less RF signal absorption.

This HF-MF Radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the SIGINT_CAP HF-MF radio wave propagation prediction software. X and O ray tracing is included.
I wrote it beginning in the late 1980’s and continue to refine it in 2019.
But I’m sorry to say that it still can’t be distributed to the general public.
It does outperform VOA CAP and Prop Lab.

I do check the actual band conditions at my location in the USA and tweak the forecast manually where and when necessary.

I also check global HF-MF radio wave propagation conditions via remoted radio
receivers on every continent of the globe and tweak the forecast manually if
and when necessary.

And last but not least I look at ionsonde stations on every continent of the
globe.

The hamateur radio JT65A mode RF signal levels received are based on 5 watts
and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio PSK31 mode RF signal levels received are based on 25
watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio CW mode RF signal levels received are based on 50 watts
and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio SSB RF mode signal levels received are based on 100 watts
and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The HF shortwave broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on
100,000 watts (100 kw) and a typical high gain VOA type curtain array
antenna.

The MF broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on 50,000 watts (50 kw) and an omnidirectional vertical antenna.

Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF-MF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable and applicable
by the average radio enthusiast.

Nothing noted on air of REE Noblejas program today, as Manuel mentioned, see below item.
Maybe some main power transformer problem ?  storm lightning strike ?

Not REE 9690, 11670, 11940, nor 12030 kHz on air.
See 9690 kHz channel tonight, when traced 19.10 to 19.16 UT on May 19:

NIGERIA  9689.919 kHz Voice of Nigeria Abuja on clear channel on May 19,
not in English language, but in definite muslim like Holy Quran content pray
at 19.14-19.16 UT, that should be Fulfulde language instead.

Glenn Hauser logs May 18-19, 2019

** CANADA. 15034-USB, May 19 at 1812, CHR, Trenton Military, with aviation weather conditions as of 1800z for Halifax, soon Greenwood and Gander special report as of 1808. First time in weeks heard with any info other than ``no report received`` from any/everywhere. Still interspersed with some NRRs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 2940+, May 19 at 0605, HJNT, Radio Huellas, Cali, as previously IDed, carrier obviously there despite high storm noise level here. I am surprised that there have been so few reports of this second harmonic, in fact the only active Colombian (almost)-SW station. Where are the DXers elsewhere in North America, let alone Latin America? Maybe just as well, as attempts to QSL it might lead to its demise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, May 18 at 2208, RHC Spanish suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.240, May 19 at 1345, RHC auto-knocked off 13740.00 for the second day in a row. Hope wolfie finally catch it too, having found it non-knocked when he chex. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But not always the same things all the time.

This is during `En Contacto` DX program, but it doesn`t finish at 1350! By then I am on 15230 hearing the RHC IS amid the show, and more Arnie, until `En Cia del Dr` finally starts at 1357. Very unusual as RHC Spanish programming is normally within one minute of nominal. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

[and non]. 15140 should be // 15230, but at 1355 May 19 a JBA signal on 15140 I cannot match with traces of modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Could Oman have resumed on 15140 from 9620, where there is also a JBA carrier? Nothing else is known on 15140 ---

Except: could it be 2 x 7570 WRMI, which is aimed right at us with Supreme Master TV?? Next time must try to mod-match that. Harmonix from Okeechobee are extremely rare. WRMI`s other 7 MHz which could multiply onto 19m would be: 15460 and 15560. The latter has happened due to mistuning, but soon repaired.

By 1425 May 19, still no RHC on 15140, and 15230 is S9 but JBM. Something`s always wrong at RHC. With so few extracontinental SW signals propagating well, we are indeed fortunate that RHC provide such a rich supply of abnormalities to capture! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** DENMARK. See USA: WTWW

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 19 at 0009, The Mighty Farty KBC via GERMANY, rock music finally good signal a biweek after QSY from 5960, but S9+10/20 still not enough to overcome nearby storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 18 at 2204, VOT English is on but VP vs RTTY CCI. ANF on R75 helps. 2205 dead air for a minute at the same time RTTY stops, S8-S5 and somewhat muffled modulation resuming at 2206 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1982 monitoring: confirmed Saturday May 18 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S9-S7 following IS/ID loop, and upcut JIP missing first 8 words, ``1982 ---``, automation out of alignment.

NOT confirmed UT Sun May 19 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, but something else. This has never been a WOR time and is not on WRMI skedgrid, but WRTH Update listed it!

** U S A. WRMI: See CUBA [and non]. 15140

** U S A. 5085, May 18 at 2212, WTWW-2 with rock music, S9/S9+10 but not enough vs storm noise level. Wonder how long this has been on; all day?

15810-, May 19 at 1347, WTWW-3 active for the second morning in a row, rock music, obviously minus but not remeasured to 15809.918 like yesterday. S9 to S9+10, about the same as neighbor 15825 WWCR-1 both getting a sporadic-E boost.

And as expected, no sign of WMR Denmark on 15805. Stig Hartvig Nielsen says, ``World Music Radio on 15805 kHz is probably the station on 19 m with the lowest power - and with the most simple aerial - so obviously that makes it a DX catch. It is not a signal you can rely on for regular listening - tuning in and then expecting a fine signal.

Most of the time, the signal will be absent or barely audible - in the areas where the signal propagates into (Russia, Southern Europe, Northern Scandinavia, Brazil, North America - and even once in Thailand). I had imagined that that would have created more interest among DX'ers.

I have just purchased a new 3 element yagi for 15805 kHz, so hopefully soon there will be some improvement in signal strength  :-)``

15810-, WTWW-3 is still on with JBA carrier at 1815 May 19, and this time I check 5085 in the daymiddle --- yes! It is also on with S7 of country/rock music vs S6 noise level. I think there be a correlation between these two activities of WTWW-3 and WTWW-2; meanwhile WTWW-1 is nominal on 9475, not 5830, with SFAW, or rather as on website wtww.us homepage, SFAWBN, which also displays a long-outdated Dave Ramsey on 9930 claim; plus contradictory times for TOITO. Searching the site for 15810 gets no hits (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

W4HM Solar Cycle 24 Update and Solar Cycle 25 Forecast- Short and to the point.

Solar minimum will begin later in 2019-2020 and may last longer than any previous solar cycle in the 20th century. When solar cycle 25 finally gets underway it could be the weakest since the middle of the 19th century. Another “Dalton” type lesser grand solar minimum may occur with a corresponding cooling of earth’s climate.

This would negate anthropogenic climate change (harmful man induced global warming) if it were occurring, (((((WHICH IT ISN’T.)))))

For more “TRUTH” on the socialist lie of anthropogenic climate change (harmful man induced global warming) check out https://wattsupwiththat.com and http://www.climatedepot.com

On February 1, 2008 I forecasted that solar cycle 24 would be the smallest solar cycle in the past 100 years. That forecast verified. I also forecasted that solar cycle 25 would be almost non nonexistent SSN <50.

#140 issued Sunday May 19, 2019 at 1415 UTC
 
GLOBAL (HF-MF 3000-30000 kHz- 300-3000 kHz) RADIO WAVE PROPAGATION CONDITIONS EXPECTED-

Radio wave propagation condition “trend” on May 19, 2019- STEADY.

Radio wave propagation condition “trend” on May 20, 2019- STEADY.

Radio wave propagation condition “trend” on May 21, 2019- MINOR DETERIORATION.

We are now moving into the summer northern hemisphere HF-MF radio wave propagation season.

The 14000- 30000 kHz frequency range closes later due to more sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is lower than in the southern hemisphere as heating in the F2 layer of the ionosphere is higher and the layer ions less concentrated.

Almost daily during the northern hemisphere summer season you will find that the 25600- 26100 kHz and 28000-29700 kHz frequency ranges will open via short north-south and east-west propagation paths via sporadic E (Es). Also when multiple sporadic E (Es) clouds form and line up favorably much longer propagation paths open up on east-west paths. And last but not least north-south propagation paths occur across the equator via trans equatorial propagation (TEP).

28000-29700 kHz- S0 at night and S0 at day.


We are now moving into the winter southern hemisphere HF-MF radio wave propagation season.
The approximate 11000- 30000 kHz frequency range closes sooner due to less sun light illuminating the ionosphere than in the southern hemisphere. But the maximum usable frequency (MUF) is higher than in the southern hemisphere as the F layer of the ionosphere is lower in height and the ions more concentrated.
The approximately 2000-10000 kHz frequency range often stays open for DX all throughout the day due to a weaker D and E layer and therefore less RF signal absorption.

This HF-MF Radio wave propagation forecast is produced based on the SIGINT_CAP HF-MF radio wave propagation prediction software. X and O ray tracing is included.
I wrote it beginning in the late 1980’s and continue to refine it in 2019.
But I’m sorry to say that it still can’t be distributed to the general public.
It does outperform VOA CAP and Prop Lab.

I do check the actual band conditions at my location in the USA and tweak the forecast manually where and when necessary.

I also check global HF-MF radio wave propagation conditions via remoted radio
receivers on every continent of the globe and tweak the forecast manually if
and when necessary.

And last but not least I look at ionsonde stations on every continent of the
globe.

The hamateur radio JT65A mode RF signal levels received are based on 5 watts
and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio PSK31 mode RF signal levels received are based on 25
watts and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio CW mode RF signal levels received are based on 50 watts
and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The hamateur radio SSB RF mode signal levels received are based on 100 watts
and ½ wave dipole up at 40 feet.

The HF shortwave broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on
100,000 watts (100 kw) and a typical high gain VOA type curtain array
antenna.

The MF broadcast band AM Mode RF signal levels are based on 50,000 watts (50 kw) and an omnidirectional vertical antenna.

Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF-MF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable and applicable
by the average radio enthusiast.

Encore -- Classical Music on Sunday

Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave - Broadcast on Sunday afternoon in Europe and USA

Encore - Classical Music this weekend is being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 19th May.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 00:00 - 01:00 UTC Monday 20th May.

There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 24th May at 19:00 UTC.

This week's show starts with something familiar from Mozart - the first movement of his Symphony 41 - Jupiter. Then something a bit more unexpected - a contemporary composer Bryce Dessner with his piano concertos for two pianos. Next Alison Balsom with her trumpet treating us to a Concerto Grosso by Corelli. We will also have some Robert Carver - the Scottish equivalent of Byrd or Tallis, and a pieces by Elgar and Handel. I hope the overall effect is both provoking and soothing.

Thank you for spreading the word about Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave.
Brice Avery - Encore - Radio Tumbril.

Regular Broadcast times are:
15:00 - 16:00 UTC Sunday, and repeated 19:00 - 20:00 UTC Friday on 6070 kHz (Channel 292 Germany).
00:00 - 01:00 UTC Monday on 7490 kHz 9WBCQ - Maine).
