Glenn Hauser logs September 18-19, 2020

 ** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 19 at 0245, good via TWR Bonaire SDR, anonymous missionary station with nice tropical music seemingly secular enough, but merely some relief as long-winded Spanish gospel huxter resumes at 0250 citing Ezekiel XL et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9470, Sept 19 at 0122, American English discussion, must be CRI, S7-S9 with flutter, and // 9580 much stronger and steadier CUBA relay, of which 9470 is a few words ahead. Yes, it`s via Kashgar this hour only, land of ChiCom imperialist persecution, brainwashing/re-education of native Uyghurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Sept 19 at 0000, after a brief tone, some CW too weak to read but presumed Radio Nova ID, as per tip from FRN via Harold Frodge that it would broadcast now. http://www.frn.net/vines/read.php?13,8326,8326#msg-8326 I`m listening via a Rochester remote as on short notice I am just getting ready for AAAWWW on WBCQs. It`s really too weak to make much of, might have been better had I fished around other SDRs or even turned on an own radio; 0042 still going with music, slightly stronger, off by 0050. Several more logs with playlists: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71791.0.html One more log says it was on 6930-USB by 0104 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, Sept 19 at 0125, piano jazz at S9/+10, a better signal here than I am getting from WRMI 7780 after 0130. 0131.5 YL ID as Ballsmacker Radio, tenpins SFX; mostly music but periodic IDs, 0143 something about ``good old - kHz AM``. Still going at 0205 as ``9 PM Eastern [sic]`` and ID; 0238 still on music down to S7-S8. Many more logs, all-Elton John, here from 0058 to 0252*: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71797.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also UNIDENTIFIED 6970

** SPAIN. PS to previous report of 9690, REE English, Sept 18, starting Anton Rubinstein`s `Don Quixote` at 2313: Chopped off abruptly for 2230 timesignal, end of transmission; that`s 17 minutes: here`s that very performance, lasting over 21 minutes; come on, Alison! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFZmzHJiAWY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR}

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2052 monitoring: confirmed UT Sat Sept 19 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, poor S9-S8 direct. Next:
1130 UT Saturday  WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

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

Thanks this week for financial support from Joe Caberlin, Chester NS, VE1EJ, for some US$ to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank.

Financial support may alternatively be sent via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com - not necessarily US funds as PP will convert.

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat Sept 19 at 0000, first monitoring webcast, WBCQ has A&A conversing before the WTO theme plays for `AAAWWW`; almost immediately interrupted by phone call from annoying Freddy, a good excuse to tune out. Recheck at 0022, Freddy is just now being let go! Whew. Allan then says he has been working on rebuilding #1 transmitter; the one donated by WRMI, just waiting for Tim Tron to come up from Skowhegan and put the finishing tuneups on it. TT seems putting off coming to Monticello, despite low COVID-19 rate there. I think AW said or implied it`s the #3 transmitter which is currently on 7490, but also mentioned a #2. I wish we had a clear roster of all six WBCQ SW transmitters, by number and which frequency they occupy. Has the ex-WRMI unit hauled from FL last year, ever been on the air yet at WBCQ? All except the 500 kW, i.e. ``classic WBCQ`` have to be rewired for single-phase power. At 0030 A&A get into discussing conspiracy theories, this week coming off a bit milder. Now I check the other frequencies at Rochester remotes: 5130 is S7-S8; 3265 nothing; 6159.9 is S9; 7490 no signal! 9330 WLCR in Portuguese is S6-S7. ``Biden can`t win since he`s partially demented``. O yeah? 0050 about an hour late, word arrives that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. On his best behavior AW does not denounce her as a socialist/communist, but ``may she be reunited with our lord and savior in heaven; RIP``. Wait a minute, she`s Jewish! But so was AW, originally, so he should know the difference. Before they finish at 0100, I check Alexandria VA SDR for 7490 and it`s OK there, S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6970-AM, Sept 19 at 0238, JBA carrier while I am still getting Ballsmacker on much stronger 6960; another pirate? None reported in HFU but is also a Sound of Hope frequency, so maybe CNR1 jamming but would have to be from far west China possibly to propagate. Seems there has also been a mixing product reported here, Cuba? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs September 18, 2020

 ** CANADA. 371-MCW kHz, Sept 18 at 0619 UT, JBA NDB dash and GW i.e.: ``371 GW CAN QC KUUJJUARAPIK 2000 55 17 5 -77 45 5`` - dxinfocentre. A new one on me; wow, what a name! I wonder if the French Canadians find it any more daunting than the English?
``Kuujjuarapik - Village in Québec, Canada --- Kuujjuarapik is the southernmost northern village at the mouth of the Great Whale River on the coast of Hudson Bay in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada. Almost 1000 people, mostly Cree, live in the adjacent village of Whapmagoostui. The community is only accessible by air, Kuujjuarapik Airport and, in late summer, by boat. Wikipedia`` Also seems the AP abbr is YGW, but not in this callsign, no Y; just GW as in Great Whale. Each DX log a potential learning experience. BTW, I do skip over a number of the ``regular`` beacons, not relogging them every time, but OTOH not non-logging them either, once heard once (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, Sept 18 at 2047, S5-S7 African language, i.e. R. Ndarason International in Kanuri via Woofferton at 1900-2100; understation no doubt WEWN Spanish, not a good share for either; but then neither is hardly targeting OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13835, Sept 18 at 1357-1400, CNR1 jammer known to be here, vs RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan; but no others audible WOOB in the 14s, 13s, 12s, 11s or 10s. 13855 Chinese, OTOH is `legit` CRI via illegit East Turkistan, land of Uyghur persecution (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 18 at 2044, no signal from RHC until cut/on unmod S9+20 carrier at *2044.6. Supposed to be on already from 2000 Portuguese, 2030 Arabic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUINEA [and non]. 9650, Sept 18 at 2040, JBA carrier, could it be RTG? Unheard for quite a while, maybe QRP or is its only SW frequency kaput? It was reported Aug 13 at 1710 by DJM in the British DX Club.  Aoki/NDXC shows VOK in Japanese does not start 9650 until 2100. Use it or lose it: 9650 is also one of the frequencies planned for WIPE, the DRM/HF trading crypto pending in NJ, as per the drmnainfo blog:

``Frequencies are stated to be 9650, 11850, 13720 and 15450 kHz. Mode is listed as DRM with emission designator 10K0G7W (which is consistent with 10 kHz DRM).`` Depending on the timing, other WIPE frequencies could conflict with Romania, Turkey, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
 
** OKLAHOMA. Area tropo enhancement blob in NW OK up to Level 4, not really extending to OKC, but only DX signal decoding via my broken antenna is from there, Sept 18 at 0314 UT:

RF 21, KUOT, same PSIP on all subchannels tho real call is KUOT-CD:

21-1, bug in UR has a circle with arrow pointing straight down. rabbit-ears says it`s Cornerstone
21-2, missing! r-e says should be IBN Television; what`s that?
21-3, 3ABN
21-4, no bug, Amazing Facts
21-5, Hope, UR bug with upstretched arms
All remain solid until dropping below decode level at 0333.

Meanwhile BAD DX signals showing: 10, 12, 20, 22, 28, 31, 32, 34, 36.

BTW, I`ve almost quit bandscanning above RF 37 due to progressive repacking; but I see lots and lots of 38+ are still listed at W9WI.com; do they really still exist? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Sept 18 at 2209, REE English VG at UTwente, Alison with detailed critical reviews of `Don Quixote` music by Anton Rubenstein --- finally, something about Spain, altho fantastical! DQ finally plays at 2213, performed by Slovak Philharmonic (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A.

First broadcast confirmed UT Fri Sept 18 at 0130 on WRMIs direct: 5850 VG S9+30, >> 5010 S9+10 noisy.

Second broadcast confirmed Fri Sept 18 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair with considerable jamming about same level at TWR Bonaire SDR. Atop but jamming still audible at Pardinho, Brasil, and Rochester NY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Sept 18 at 1451, no signal from WJHR; recheck at 2043 can`t decide if a trace of not. The SWBC station, or rather glorified ham rig, most likely to have been blown away by Hurricane Sally, Milton FL near Pensacola. Seldom audible anyway. It will be of note if anyone definitely hear it again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN [non]. 15310, Sept 18 at 1452, VP S6-S7 talk about even with noise level; also noted other days as OOFSOB [one of few signals on band]. Aoki/NDXC shows this hour only it`s R Liberty in Uzbek via Woofferton UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 18 at 0235-0244; this early does not rule out Middle East, but likely mostly Europe: 531, 576, 585, 594, 603(2), 639, 684, 693, 738, 747, 765, 774(2), 792, 819, 837, 882*, 891, 909, 936, 999, 1026, 1035, 1044, 1053(2), 1089, 1098, 1107, 1116, 1125, 1134, 1152, 1215*, 1296(2 with SAH of 152/minute = 2.53 Hz), 1305(2 faster SAH), 1341, 1458, 1521(2). *strongest, likely both UK. Later:

TA JBA MW carrier search, Sept 18 at 0605-0612: *531, 603, 612, 621, 684, 693, 774(2), 837, 855(2), 882, 936, 1017, 1044, 1089, 10998, 1107, 1125, 1215, 1305(2), 1413, 1485, 1503. *strongest one, Algeria but a few minutes later no longer so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13587-USB, Sept 18 at 1359, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, as I am futilely bandscanning for CNR1 jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Propagation News – 20 September 2020

 We had another uninspiring week with zero sunspots. However, there was DX to be had, with many Chiltern DX Club members reporting openings on 17 and 15 metres for well-equipped stations. Clive, GM3POI reported hearing India, Japan, Lebanon and South Africa on 17 metres and South Africa, Kenya, Oman and Kuwait on 15 metres. This was no doubt due to seasonal changes in the ionosphere and a very low Kp index, reflecting settled conditions.
The sporadic E season in the Northern Hemisphere has now finished so 10 metre openings are now few and far between. Tony, G4CJC, in his 10 metre band report, said that it was an “appalling week” on 28MHz.

The good news is that NASA and NOAA reported that Solar Cycle 25 has begun. During a media teleconference on 15 September, an international panel of experts found that the sunspot number hit rock bottom in December 2019. Since then, it said sunspot counts have been “slowly increasing”, with solar maximum expected in 2025. Nevertheless, NOAA predicts that the solar flux index will remain pegged at 70 next week, with quiet geomagnetic conditions and a maximum Kp index of two. However, things become more unsettled next weekend when the Kp index may rise to four or five due to the return of a coronal hole and its associated high-speed solar wind stream.

VHF and up:

It seems that we are continuing to show a strong hand for tropo, since high pressure remains close by for much of the time until the end of the coming week. A small blemish this first weekend is the risk of some isolated showers over southern England with possible GHz bands rain scatter options. With similar results, we also have a weak cold front moving south midweek. Otherwise, it’s high pressure predominating in the second half of the week and offering further tropo opportunities.

With negative Moon declination, visibility windows will shorten as the week progresses, reaching a minimum on Thursday. Last Friday’s perigee means that path losses will steadily climb throughout the week. 144MHz sky temperatures are close to 3,000K on Wednesday and combined with the low Moon, EME conditions will be poor midweek. However it’s a good week to increase your satellite DXCC and square counts between the tropo events. There are plenty of LEO sats to choose from plus of course, QO-100 available 24/7.

There is one meteor shower this week—the daytime Sextantids. It has a radiant in the constellation of Sextans and is active until 9 October with the peak occurring on 27 September. The source of the meteor shower is asteroid 2005 UD.

The K7RA Solar Update

 Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports: Lots of news lately about the solar cycle, but no sunspots. Today, September 18, is the 29th consecutive day with no sunspots.
The news this week was about the Solar Cycle 24 minimum, announced recently as having occurred during December 2019 and indicating the start of Solar Cycle 25. The reason that announcement is just coming out now has to do with the nature of moving averages, which in this case is a smoothed sunspot number, derived from arithmetical averaging of sunspot numbers over a whole year, i.e., half before December and half, to derive a mid-point average.

Recent news stories offer predictions for Solar Cycle 25, such as this one from SpaceRef.

The reporting week of September 10 – 16 gave us an average daily solar flux of 69.2, no significant difference from the previous week’s 69.7. Average daily planetary A index was 5.3, up only a little from 4.4 the previous week. Average daily mid-latitude A index went from 4.9 to 5.4.

Predicted solar flux for the next 45 days (September 18 – November 1) is the same as reported in past recent bulletins, 70 on every day.

Predicted planetary A index is 5 on September 18 – 22; 8, 10, 15, 10, 25, 15, and 10 on September 23 – 29; 5 on September 30 – October 14; 8 on October 15 – 16; 5 on October 17 – 19; then, as in the earlier period, 8, 10, 15, 10, 25, 15, and 10 on October 20 – 26, then back to 5 on October 27 – November 1.

Here’s a geomagnetic activity forecast for September 18 – October 13 from F.K. Janda, OK1HH. The geomagnetic field will be:

quiet on September 21-22, October 6-8

quiet to unsettled on September 18, October 3-5, 9-10, 13

quiet to active on September 19-20, 23-24, 29-30, October 1-2

unsettled to active (September 25-28, October 11-12)

active to disturbed: not expected

Solar wind will intensify on September (19,) 22-23, 27-29, October (3-4,) 11-13

Note: Parentheses mean lower probability of activity enhancement. The predictability of changes remains lower because there are few unambiguous indications.

Steven Rudnick, W1KYB, Santa Fe, New Mexico, asked, “How did they come to the conclusion that we are in a new cycle when the sunspot number has been zero for 27 days now?”

Scientists probably looked at a couple of factors. One is the polarity of sunspots. As the sun transitions from one cycle to the next, the polarity of sunspots changes. It starts with a few sunspots having opposite polarity from sunspots in the recent cycle, then gradually it shifts so eventually the majority have the new cycle polarity.

The other factor is the smoothed sunspot number, which is an average based on an entire year of sunspot numbers. This reduces the noise in the numbers, so it is easier to see the trends.

The smoothed sunspot number for December 2019 would be based on the monthly sunspot numbers for approximately July 2019 through July 2020.

Here’s the data.

If you look at the monthly averages, they jump all over the place.

The monthly averages for September 2019 through March 2020 were 1.1, 0.40, 0.50, 1.5, 6.2, 0.20, and 1.5.

But the smoothed numbers for those same months were 3.1, 2.6, 2, 1.8, 2.2, 2.8, and currently undetermined for March, placing the lowest number in December.

At some point in the future, the current dearth of sunspots over the past month may just look like noise in retrospect. Or maybe not, should it continue. I hope it does not persist.

>From the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), predicted solar flux and sunspot numbers through December 2040.

Here’s NASA’s take on Solar Cycle 25.

Here’s the latest report from Space Weather Woman Tamitha Skov, WX6SWW.

Sunspot numbers for September 10 through 16, 2020 were 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, and 0, with a mean of 0. The 10.7-centimeter flux was 69.3, 68.7, 69.3, 69.8, 68.9, 68.8, and 69.5, with a mean of 69.2. Estimated planetary A indices were 2, 3, 5, 6, 11, 7, and 3, with a mean of 5.3. Middle latitude A index was 2, 2, 6, 7, 10, 8, and 3 with a mean of 5.4.

Riattivati i 963 kHz di Radio Tunisi Internazionale

 Sono stati riattivati nel tardo pomeriggio i 963 khz di Radio Tunisi Internazionale, la frequenza era inattiva dalla mattinata di lunedì quando si è abbattuto un'ondata di maltempo che ha interessato buona parte del Mediterraneo. Il segnale però risulterebbe molto più debole del solito, tanto da far prevalere anche in Sicilia le trasmissioni di Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation in isofrequenza. Ancora inattivi i 999 kHz da Malta il cui ripristino, secondo fonti interne all'emittente, richiederebbe almeno una settimana di lavoro. (G. Lorenzi)

 ** CANADA. 223-MCW kHz, Sept 17 at 0635 UT, ND beacon dash and YYW, 1000 watts from Armstrong, Ontario.

248-MCW kHz, Sept 17 at 0639 UT, NDB dash and UL, 1000 watts from Montréal, Québec. A new log for me, but frequently reported from Michigan over the past sesquidecade. City-to-city distance: 2268 km = 1409 stmi.

[non]. 245-MCW kHz, Sept 17 at 0638, NO signal from YZE, Gore Bay, Ontario, leaving FS, Sioux Falls SD in the clear; per dxinfocentre.com, YZE was to be decommissioned on Sept 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 17 at 1358: none in the 13s or higher than: 12880 S5 music, JBA carriers on 12870, 11440, 11100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 17 past 0500, anonymous missionary station is still going with M&W dialog, VG at Bonaire SDR. Also audible at 0622 direct S6-S7 with talk. Manuel Méndez. Lugo, Spain, points out:

``Hi, Glenn, despite the religious station on 4940 mentioning a lot of times "Colombia", and it has programs like "Lecciones de la Historia Colombiana", always announcing UT -4 time, instead of UT -5. Years ago a Venezuelan station transmitted on 4940 kHz, Radio Amazonas, Puerto Ayacucho. It is possible this religious station is using the Radio Amazonas transmitter? The religious station is heard every day here in Reinante, Lugo, North West of Spain with weak to very weak signal. This weekend I will be in Friol and there I will have better conditions to hear it. Best 73,s``

Puerto Ayacucho is right on the border with Colombia, near the NE corner of that country, and not too far from one of the TDoA results, Marahuaca national park, Amazonas, Venezuela (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, Sept 17 at 0623, not just a JBA carrier, but VP S8-S9 of music, presumed WRMI extra frequency/transmitter, maybe on more than exciter power, or a fluke propagational pipeline. Not // any other WRMI frequency, mostly TOMBS. Still nothing whatsoever about this on WRMI skedgrids --- at this hour half the 14 transmitters are not scheduled: #2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, 14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic just-barely-audible mediumwave carrier search, Sept 17 at 0627-0635 UT: 576(2), *621 strongest, 684(2), 747, 765, 774, 837, 855(2), 882, 936, 1008, 1098, 1107, 1125, 1161(2). Notable for their absence are 531 & 891, Algeria too far into dayside? And no 846 sign of TP Kiritimati which is totally night-path, off? *621 presumed Canary Islands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Report on the Special “Mahalaya” program

Report on the Special “Mahalaya” program broadcast early this morning 17 Sept 2020 IST:

Like the previous years, I got up early in the morning to listen to the Special “ Mahalaya” program broadcast by different stations of AIR which ushers in the famous Durga Pooja festival of the people West Bengal and other places. Here is my detailed report of reception (indicating sign on timings)

(DXSWLs please note that 3.30 am is 2200 UTC)Sign on (IST) kHz

3.30 am : 666 New Delhi,
3.35 am : 819 New Delhi
3.48 am : 657 Kolkata, 1008 Kolkata

4.20 am: 1179 Rewa, 1242 Varanasi
4.25 am: 648 Indore, 801 Jabalpur. 981 Raipur, 1593 Bhopal

The following frequencies reported in previous years were not heard:

792 Pune, 990 Jammu, 1044 Mumbai

Receiver: Yaesu FT 757 GX II
Antenna: Icom AH 710 (Folded Dipole)

This year I checked the “Live Streaming” of all AIR stations and heard 44 stations / channels like many FM Rainbow stations & FM stations including

4.35 am Guwahati sign on MW & FM.

Stations in South India carried this broadcast on FM Rainbow channels only, not on MW.Live streaming was not there of AIR Agartala, Bhuj, Jammu, Patna, Pune, Rajkot, FM Rainbow Visakhapatanam at that time.

No SW channels were observed this year, may be due to skip conditions

It is nice to see reports showing that many Dxers in India were awake early this morning to monitor the different AIR stations carrying the special Mahalaya programs.

Glenn Hauser logs September 16-17, 2020

 ** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Wed Sept 16 at 1551, no signal from LRA36 to Brasil remote, despite nominal weekly 14-16 UT schedule. Big RAE special in Spanish, German and English is planned for Saturday Sept 19 at 1500-2200, weather permitting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 395-MCW kHz, Sept 16 at 0624 UT, NDB dash and YL, which is 1600 watts from Lynn Lake, and which appears to be at the end of the road in NW Manitoba.

401-MCW kHz, Sept 16 at 0621 UT, ND beacon dash and YPO, which is 500 watts from Peawanuck, Ontario. Must be this but had copied as YWO, missing a dit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 16 before 2400 UT, anonymous missionary station is on with good signal into TWR Bonaire SDR, so since no one else is doing it, I try TDoA direxion-finding for the first time. I am not impressed, but maybe I am insufficiently expert in application. To get to it, find TDoA under extensions on the player. Get the map zoomed appropriately. Enter up to six SDRs to employ. Run it as each tries GPS for one minute. Then algorithm gets to work.

First try comes up with -10.50, -134.50, i.e. somewhere in the S Pacific; I think not. It seems I can`t use Bonaire itself since that one of the three SDRs for TDoA is ``all busy`` including by me. Another try with Vilhena western Brasil participating, comes up with 12.40, -64.60 which is Caribbean between Grenada and Curacao; Getting warm??

Bogotá SDR is receiving a poor signal on 4940, so now I start from there, and can bring up three closest TWRs, Bonaire, Boa Vista and DR to do the TDoA. At 2350 these come up with 3.80, -65.60, which is Marahuaca National Park, Amazonas, in remote S Central Venezuela! This  might be believable, not too far from Boa Vista, Brasil. But almost an hour later at 0045 UT Sept 16, I retry with exactly same parameters still entered, and this time it finds ``most likely`` 18.60, -63.80 which is between BVI and Anguilla.

I`m afraid Timed-Delay-of-Arrival is so unreliable, self-contradictory, as to be useless. Anyhow, none of these tries came up with anywhere inside Colombia. For giggles, I finally enter some known frequencies as picked up in Bogotá: 5800 WRMI it places at 9.40, -70.80, in Trujillo, Venezuela! 9955 WRMI at 16.20, -71.00, asea south of DR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 16 at 1428, RHC is S9+10 but extremely suptorted as usual, ruining the music of `Sonido Cubano`; // 15230 is only S5-S6, undermodulated but not distorted; // 13700 is loud and clear, lacking spurs. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 7, KOCO-TV ``5``, Sept 16 at 2205 UT, surprised to find besides local news on 5-1, its only extra channel, 5-2 is running an acting-president Drumpf, Liar-in-Chief press conference apparently live, instead of MeTV which per onscreen guide is supposed to be in The Flintstones; o, if only!

Bbc News, "sforbiciata" da 80 milioni: tagliati 450 posti di lavoro

La crisi nel mondo dell'informazione non risparmia neanche i giganti del settore. Bbc News ha appena annunciato la decisione di tagliare ben 450 posti di lavoro, l'unica strada percorribile per raggiungere l'obiettivo di un risparmio di 80 milioni di sterline entro il 2022.

Ad annunciare la profonda “sforbiciata” di lavoratori è stata la stessa emittente sul proprio sito web. Bbc News impiega attualmente circa 6.000 persone, di cui 1.700 al di fuori del Regno Unito. Il suo budget dopo l'entrata in vigore delle modifiche sarà di circa 480 milioni di sterline all'anno. 

Il capo della Bbc News Fran Unsworth ha dichiarato: "La Bbc deve affrontare le nuove modalità con cui gli utenti si interfacciano con noi modo. Dobbiamo rimodellare Bbc News per i prossimi cinque o dieci anni in un modo che consenta di risparmiare ingenti somme di denaro. Stiamo spendendo troppe risorse per la trasmissione tradizionale e non abbastanza per il digitale".

Glenn Hauser logs September 15-16, 2020

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Sept 15 at 2131, RAE via WRMI is listed as Italian this hour, but since COVID-19 hit, each language hour could be filled by bits in any or all of their 8 languages, which explains why they are in English now talking about the 100th anniversary of the first radio broadcast on August 27, which presented Wagner`s `Parsifal` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. New VOA relay via HJHJ 600: see separate post headed VENEZUELA [non]

** COLOMBIA. 4940, Sept 16 at 0115, quick check for anonymous new missionary station, via TWR Bonaire SDR, after concentrating on 600, finds a JBA signal here, probably only the Peruvian. No TDOA tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 15 at 2112, RHC Spanish is suptorted/JBM; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC. I am beginning to suspect sabotage somewhere along the line from studio to STL to transmitter to monitoring; someone preventing clear distribution of Commie propaganda. Or maybe just low morale, don`t-give-a-damn attitude. All it takes is one weakest link (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY. 14222-USB, Sept 15 at 2115, IZ0GYR, Antonio in Rome, CQ 20, working N1EW, and being repeatedly called by WA7TEN. Sometimes under an open carrier. Look at his profusely illustrated website as he is an artist and famous? actor:

IZ0GYR Italy flag Italy

Rome 00152

https://www.qrz.com/lookup/iz0gyr
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 13630, Sept 15 at 2121, dead air at S7-S8; then bits of talk breaking thru in American English, so must be CRI relay, altho now supposed to be toward end of sesquihour in Arabic. Wiggle that patchcord (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 15 at 2220, via UTwente, VOT is VG with music, 2222 COVID PSA; while at 2248 direct to here I find it S5-S6 poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9740, Tue Sept 15 at 2128, too-well-e-nun-ci-a-ted Q&A about where`s the A-mer-i-can room in a mu-se-um, i.e. a language lesson, S7-S9 in English only: ``Go down-stairs, then turn right...`` and chopped off the air at 2129.5*, leaving us hanging. It`s VOA French via Woofferton UK, supposedly at 2100-2130 M-F only. Don`t blame Encompass for the chop, but VOA where it no longer matters to match programming to SW transmission times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs: new VOA via Colombia 600 to Venezuela

** VENEZUELA [non]. You may recall that VOA has been trying to get into Venezuela via a MW transmitter in an adjacent country. Guyana was approached some 6 months ago about using a 560 kHz relay, but VOA was turned down. TWR Bonaire, which owes the USA something for licensing KTWR Guam, would seem the obvious choice, but they must have higher priorities for 800 kHz, at least during prime time.


On September 11, Don Moore informed me: ``COLOMBIA - Starting next week VOA Spanish programs for Venezuela will be relayed on 600 kHz (listed 50 kW) via Radio Libertad in Barranquilla, Colombia. The broadcasts are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. on September 15th, or 0000 UTC September 16th. The schedule I received shows the relays as being three hours long Monday to Friday (local days) and two hours long on Saturday and Sunday. (VOA via Don Moore)``

So I`m all set to monitor this début via remotes in the area. Before 0000, none of them are any good for 600 kHz except TWR Bonaire, where I noticed there is also someone in Barinas, Venezuela tuned to 600:

600 kHz, Sept 15 at 2353 UT, sounds like a preacher in Spanish, with QRM. But at 0000 Sept 16, Radio Rebelde is mostly dominant, no VOA heard yet. There are basically two stations mixing. On the Key West SDR I compare to 5025, distorted Rebelde, and find no match at first, but then I can hear a match in the background of 600, and the foreground talk is about Venezuela.

600 would not seem a very good choice, but at least there are no YVs on it -- yet; there may not have been (m)any other options, and R. Libertad is a good 50 kW. Nearest major competitor may be 40 kW in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Barranquilla is 863 km = 536 statute miles from Caracas, with Maracaibo about midway. At distancefromto.net if you enter Caracas, Venezuela, looking closely at the map, that merely reaches the west end of Caracas? province, near where the map is labeled Carabobo. You have to enter ``Caracas, Caracas, Venezuela`` to get to the capital city. The path is unfortunately all over-land since Bqa is on the NW coast. But this will be relying on skywave.

How does that compare to the CubaRM? R. Rebelde on 600 is in the east, San Germán, Holguín, at 1494 km = 928 statute miles = 807 nautical miles from Caracas; and its bearing is NW from there. Venzies with direxional radios may be able to null it and get mostly HJHJ/VOA. Is it not convenient that this ``opposition`` service is already named Radio Libertad, but that`s coincidental as it goes way back deriving from the Bqa newspaper La Libertad: https://cadenaradiallalibertad.com.co/sitio/

Guess what, I don`t see anything about hooking up with VOA on its website, nor is there any specific program schedule to be seen.

Resuming what I am axually able to hear on 600: at 0016, Rebelde is dominant // 5025 as VOA fades; 0022 RR music // 5025 via KW. 0027 ``VOA Noticias`` definitely heard, 0028 again concerning Venezuela; 0031 VOA ID, ``una producción de La Voz de America``.

At 0049 I`ve brought up the ``listen live`` link here, first of seven stations https://cadenaradiallalibertad.com.co/sitio/radios/ and there is the VOA relay loud & clear, with program ID ``Buenos Dias, America`` --- so it`s anything but live! Rather played back from the morning some 12 hours ago. 0101 concluding that program, with ID again, and now also for ``600 AM, en Barranquilla, emsisora afiliada con sistema de noticias de la VOA``; Then own callsign ID as ``HJHJ, 50 mil vatios...`; at 0114 another joint ID. Perhaps they have now switched to the less stale tarde VOA program, `El Mundo al Día`, also available as a 32-minute podcast, but archive shows M-F only, as nothing ever happens on weekends.

VOA website does not say anything about this either that I can find, but you can get their program audios --- are there any others left in Spanish?

https://www.voanoticias.com/radio-buenos-dias-america
https://www.voanoticias.com/radio-mundo-al-dia
``Radio en vivo`` is NOT live, but the latest 32-minute episode:

https://www.voanoticias.com/episode/el-mundo-al-dia-noticiero-voz-de-america-radio-237606

And o yes, specifically for/about Venezuela, basically a TV show, but audio-only also available and surely filling some of the 600 hours, in fact probably what initiated this service at 0000: https://www.voanoticias.com/venezuela-360-television (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 278-MCW kHz, 0625 UT Sept 15, JBA, dash and ND beacon NM,

500 watts from Matagami, Québec; new for me? Not quite, last logged:

``278 kHz, Dec 14 [2018] at 0717, beacon NM and dash: 500 watts from Matagami, Quebec. Matagami is in a remote off-road area near 78 W/50 N, NNE of Rouyn-Noranda.``

Value-added info to this log per Wikipedia: ``Toponymy --- In Cree, "matagami" means "meeting of waters", in reference to the large rivers that join.`` And the town exists because of a zinc+ mine.

Interesting that its neighbor at DXinfocentre.com is at almost the same latitude in SK within 16 seconds; no sign of that now:

278 N1 CAN SK Assiniboia 200  49 43 42  -105 56 57

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Sept 15 at 1417: none in the 13s or 12s; at 1419, JBA or JBA carriers on 11150, 11120, 11100, 10920 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 4940-, Sept 15 at 0134 via TWR Bonaire KiwiSDR, anonymous missionary station with M&W talk in Spanish only, reads S4-S5 in USB reception, but S8-S9 in SynchAM, carrier offset varying from -2.8 to -6.1 Hz. 0200 it`s peaking S9+15 at -4.3 to -4.6 Hz, protracted sermon about Apocalipsis = Revelation. 0311 tropical music. 0356 yelling preacher in echoey venue, with music. Outro program with club para niños, addresses: Apartado 260, San José, 2120, Costa Rica, or Historia Preferida, Casilla 14-23, Cochabamba, Bolivia; 0359 NO ID, into songs; 0455 still/again music with automated? timecheck as 12:54, 0458 preacher, still past 0527. That`s UT-4 while Colombia is UT-5. Others also report such timechex; this implies 4940 is for Venezuela if not from inside that country. Of course they had been heard playing part of the Colombian national anthem at *2300; but that could be misdirexion. I posted to the WOR iog:

``OK, since the perpetrators are mum about what and where this station really is, it`s about time to get on it with the TDOA direxion-finding technique, triangulation or multiangulation using remote receivers. First place to rule in or out is Puerto LLeras, which is in central Colombia, SE of Bogotá, where 6010 & 5910 were located. Let us know your results first!`` --- I myself have never tried this Timed-Delay-Of-Arrival technique, and am not familiar with the procedure, but others in our group have in other cases; yet no replies, so far (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. Correcting WOR 2051 monitoring report of IRRS 7290, Iran is on 7300 of course, not 7290; I did it again! Fixed:  ...Again this week no 7291 warble, hope gone for good, but always annoying inevitable splash from 7280 Vietnam and 7300 Iran; the latter should be off after 1820... (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday September 15 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG S9+10/20 at Bonaire SDR; but recheck 0350 just in time to hear me cut off at 0350:40 for two IDs in Spanish by Rudy and some Mexican, then fill music starting with a version of ``Chariots of Fire``. I quickly asked WRMI to look into this anomaly and prevent it from happening again. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** BRAZIL. 4985, Sept 14 at 0621, S6-S9 music, presumed R. Brasil Central, in the clear as RTTY is off! Ivo Ivanov also reports it tonight at 0800 & 0900 via Brasilia SDR as ``reactivated``. Was it really ever unactivated? Normally totally blocked here by RTTY from NSS. EiBi shows both as 24 hours. Checked 11815v for RBC but nothing there, maybe off and not only not propagable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 4940-, Sept 14 at 0346, new anonymous missionary station is VP S5-S6 even at Bonaire which in AMSynch now shows carrier -5.4 Hz. Last check direct here at 0623 finds S8-S9 of talk and music, but not enough vs noise level. In the WOR iog, Lúcio Otávio Bobrowiec in Embu, SP, Brasil was hearing it even later, 0600-0808 mostly with Spanish sermons being translated to English, and never any IDs even at hourtops. Earlier log from me was English to Spanish --- sure about that? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, UT Mon Sept 14 at 0616, RHC English with Arnie wrapping up `DXers Unlimited` until 0618.5, then `Ed Newman` with Mailbag Show. Ed make it sound so normal to be living in a Commie dictatorship! 6145 is S8-S9 with good modulation, while 6100 is S9+20 but undermodulated, suptorted. 5040 and 6000 are off already. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8502-USB, Sept 14 at 0315, NMG USCG New Orleans. Mark Sills, Dallas, reminds us of marine weather on 8502 and 4316 - the unflappable robot despite hurricane bearing down. Before 0400 I`m getting 8502-USB fairly via Bonaire SDR I happen to have up, but there are probably better ways to hear them; 4316-USB not heard. Don`t expect any breaking news of hurricane hits. EiBi shows nominal schedule:

8502 0330-0405 USA NMG USCG New Orleans E NAm nm
8502 0515-0550 USA NMG USCG New Orleans E NAm nm

Similar sked on 12788, and in between the voiceblox are lengthier fax transmissions centered 1.9 kHz higher (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. World of Radio 2051 monitoring: missed checking UT Mon Sept 14 at 0030 on WRMI 7730; anyone hear it?

Confirmed UT Mon Sept 14 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S8-S9 at UTwente. Also
WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 14 at 0230, VG on WRMI 7780 via UTwente; and also VG on 5800 via some closer SDR, Rochester?

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 14 starting late on Area 51 webcast, from 0308.8, after some Mantovani music and closing by a monthly DJ whose name I did not catch; while WBCQ 5130 achieves only a JBA carrier into Rochester, likely less here; and no signal on 6159.9. Meanwhile Larry will explained:

``Hi Glenn, American Debauchery with Duane Bruce ran a little late tonight, so WOR will be on about 7 or 8 minutes late on 5130. Hope you like the good music from Frederick Moe on "Herman's Radio and Record Room," nominally 0230 UTC, but delayed tonight because of Debauchery's over-run. Cheers, Lw``

``Next week, 6159.9 still planned, right? Glenn``

``Yes, we are planning to complete the switchover to 6159.9 on September 19. There are two shows on 5130 that aren't produced here that will be displaced - one is probably going to move to an open time slot on 7490, the other's fate is not determined yet. I hope to have an updated schedule completed by mid-week and I'll post a note to the WOR list when it's done. Also, 5130 is poor to fair here and very noisy at this time. It's definitely on the air but propagation isn't happy tonight. Lw``

Also confirmed UT Mon Sept 14 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, S6-S8 at Pardinho SDR, Brasil.

Also confirmed Mon Sept 14 from 1800:54 on IRRS, 7290 BULGARIA, S9+30 via UTwente, and apparently intact until 1829:54 as my final words are not! cut off but Feature Story News opening is upcut. Earlier monitoring of 7290: 1753 JBA carrier from algo; *1757:10 cut-on strong open carrier; 1758:49 JIP rock music; 1759:53 IRRS ID, offering numbered QSL for reports to P O Box 10-980, N-20110 Milano, Italy; contrary to web info from IRRS that they are no longer accepting postal mail! 1800:27 FSN headlines, always only 3 quickies before WOR start. Again this week no 7291 warble, hope gone for good, but always annoying inevitable splash from 7280 Vietnam and 7290 Iran; the latter should be off after 1820. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780 to NE
0330 UT Tuesday   WRMI 5800 NEW to SSE

** U S A. 5085, Sept 14 at 0620, WTWW-2 is still on, S9+10 weaker than usual and modulation much weaker, JBM. It`s really ailing; hasn`t Ted noticed? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Quick minor DX-pedition north of Enid on US 81/64/60 parked near Craig Road intersexion just south of the T, Sunday September 13 at 2148-2201 UT on caradio:

1130, at 2148 no signal or at least no modulation from KLEY Wellington KS, just some ACI splash, and a JBA fast SAH between two stations, one of them presumably KWKH Shreveport remnant. [1130 checked next day Sept 14 at 1905 UT, groundwave scarcely a semihour after local mean noon, on bigrigs at HQ, no S9 open carrier any more, but some JBA carrier too weak to DF, possibly KLEY on exciter or 1-watt night power]

620, at 2150 and still 2201, dead air from Spanish gospel huxter KTNO Plano (Metroplex) TX.

1350, at 2153, JBA mix of talk and CW music making fast SAH; normally an open daytime channel in Enid; both Okies a little too far for groundwave, 180-watt KPNS Duncan and 1000-watt KTLQ Tahlequah; also possible 500-watt KMAN Manhattan KS. KTLQ in Cherokee Country is the C&W one.

970, at 2154, 2500-watt KCFO Tulsa gospel huxter surprisingly strong here; inside Enid blocked by local 960 KGWA. KCFO has a minor lobe to its NW, so now we are closer into it.

1370, at 2155, still no trace of alleged KGNO Dodge City KS.

1460, at 2155, KZUE El Reno OK Mexmx has a fast SAH from another station. It`s early, 2 hours and 46 minutes before LSS at 0041 but skywave seems to be starting up on topend. Closests are KKOY Chanute KS, and KCLE Burleson TX.

1510, at 2156, ESPN Radio, ads, 2158-2159 fade out/in as skywave, back in time for KCTE Kansas City ID, i.e. Independence MO. With 132/minute SAH from algo = 2.2 Hz. Definitely skywave as KC/MO does not make it here on groundwave above 1.1 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM. The 1600 VOV English broadcast is still running, checked via UTwente Sept 14 at 1619, VG on 9729.952v and 7279.999+, also audible on much weaker 7219.999+ 73, (Glenn Hauser, Sept 14, WOR iog)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
07 - 13 September 2020

Solar activity was very low throughout the reporting period. No
spotted regions were observed on the visible disk and no
Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available coronagraph imagery.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was
normal to high levels throughout the reporting period. GOES-16 peak
flux reached 10,200 pfu at 07/1600 UTC.

Geomagnetic field activity was quiet to unsettled under a mostly
nominal solar wind regime.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
14 September - 10 October 2020

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels for 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 on 14 - 25 Sep and at
high levels, following CH HSS activity, from 26 Sep - 10 Oct.

Geomagnetic field activity is likely to range from quiet to G1
(Minor) geomagnetic storm levels. G1 levels are likely on 27 Sep;
active levels are likely on 25-26 Sep and 28 Sep; unsettled levels
are likely on 23-24 Sep and 29 Sep. All elevated levels of
geomagnetic activity are in response to anticipated CH HSS
influence. The remainder of the outlook period is expected to
observe quiet conditions.

International radio stations now restricted on TuneIn

TuneIn has removed access for UK listeners to the majority of radio stations based outside the country due to licensing reasons.

The move follows a High Court battle against TuneIn from Sony and Warner, who say TuneIn was liable for both direct and authorising infringement in connection to all but the UK-based stations contained in its app.

TuneIn argued it was simply connecting users to streams owned by radio stations, and acted as simply a search engine for radio, just ‘communicating the music contained in each radio station’s stream to the public’.

The judge didn’t accept TuneIn’s argument that it was just a search engine, similar to Google, saying users can do so much more than search, such as browse music by genre and artist.

And whilst the ruling was made last November, the changes are only just being made, with users complaining on social media that they can no longer listen to stations from outside the UK.

TuneIn Support is responding by saying: “Due to a court ruling in the United Kingdom, we will be restricting international stations to prohibit their availability in the UK, with limited exceptions. We apologize for the inconvenience..”

A spokesperson for Sony Music commented that TuneIn is “unlawfully redistributing and commercialising links to unlicensed music on a widespread scale.”

Glenn Hauser logs September 12-13, 2020

** COLOMBIA. 4940, Sept 13 at 0021, JBA direct anonymous missionary station; from 0117 via Bonaire KiwiSDR: S9 and with typical AMSynch carrier offset minus 3.2 to 3.5 Hz, usual long-winded gospel huxter in Spanish citing Isaiah 11, 12. 0120 prayer and cut to produced promo for ``la película La Montaña, gratis`` via internet, usual URL which dispenses with ñ for just plain n; song; 0135 same promo again; 0320 recheck weakened to S5-S7, preacher in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-USB, Sept 13 at 0024, pirate rock music S5-S6; I`m mostly monitoring on the backup PL-880 with reelout while bandscanning on the JRC, and DJ keeps interjecting brief comments the starts of which I miss until retuned on main rx. 0028 says the tune is one he has not heard before. 0034 refers to music from years 1974 & 1975; 0045 another break with Morse code; 0047 sudden CW mixing with music, partially copied as WDOG. 0048 weaker with voice ID? 0052 wild SFX; 0100 SynthYL ID over music sounds like ``Radio Station E-X-P``.

Many other logs of WDOG, but none with CW IDs, nor EXP as I heard: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71552.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Area tropo levels 1-2 and barely 3 over northern OK per Hepburn maps predicted for 1500 UT September 13, so UHF/VHF bandscan via my still-broken antenna from 1507 finds the following situation, by RF channels only:

OKC channels no good due to DX QRM: 33, 29, 27, 23, 18, 15, 13, 7 BAD DX signals only, not decoding: 36, 35, 32, 30, 26, 21, 11, 10, 9 DX decodes: Tulsa mkt 34, 28, 22, 20; Wichita tho beyond map area: 31 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept 12 at 1932 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, VG S9+10 at the KiwiSDR nearby in Warrenton, about 2 minutes into, so started circa nominal 1930.

Also confirmed Sat Sept 12 at 2323 the 2300 on WRMI 7780, poor S8-9 here.

Also confirmed via Warrenton SDR, UT Sun Sept 13 at 0322 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, about 3 minutes into so started circa 0319. But ending at 0347.6. Altho originally 29.0 minutes long, timing is skewed by removal of most of my opening due to music banned from ham, but WA0RCR IDs inserted every dekaminute. Next:

0030 UT Monday    WRMI 7730 to WNW

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 13 at 0019, WTWW-2 with TONITO already underway but undermodulated, distorted despite usual very strong signal, so unlistenable. Not near computer so not switching to $tereo webfeed; probably a rerun anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 9840, Sun Sept 13 at 1357, JBA carrier so I measure to determine if it`s still off-frequency-minus VOV scheduled until 1530? No, 9840.004, finished measuring just in time when bigsig from WHRI cuts on with no ID. The JBA one was probably Turkey scheduled here before and after 1400; per Aoki/NDXC, WHRI weekends only, supposed to be on Sundays from 1200 until off at 1400, while Saturdays extended until 1600; not so (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1360, UT Sun Sept 13 at 0620 I`m trying for WNJC DX test on the second night, by tuning to 1361.0-USB in case I can detect some of the non-vocal SFX, and maybe I get a bit: 0623.7 JBA sweep tones briefly; 0631.7 continuous tone; 0658 one ``V`` in Morse as known to introduce the CW IDs; was it cut off? Do these match exact timings as heard by others or logged by station?

FCC AM Query shows day pattern with one major lobe centered at 155 degrees --- not good for most of us.

UNIDENTIFIED. 9-kHz, JBA MW carrier search, Sept 13 at 0607 with presumed likely sources this late: 936-Morocco, 846-Kiritimati, 684-Spain, 711-Morocco, 621-Canaries, 1107-Spain. BTW, it`s neat to be getting at same time on MW both Xmas Island and Agadir, Morocco, which are this far apart: 15051 km = 9352 statute miles = 8127 nautical miles.. The direct GC path between them passes over California, Salt Lake, Lake Superior, Newfoundland (Glenn Hauser, OK WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6999.9-LSB, Sept 13 at 0022, QSO in Spanish escaping the 40m band, one nicknamed Tigre; uses ham lingo like `QSL` meaning I copied you, not a card; cumpleaños greeting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
