Glenn Hauser logs January 19, 2020

** CANADA. 2598-USB, Jan 19 at 0648 UT again I am hearing a roboyl marine weather broadcast in English at a time when none scheduled at  nor at - and the Canadian CG website seems to have deleted its once-extensive scheduling of these. Mentions storm warnings, 0652 for northern Grand Banx, then for southeastern G.B. Forecasts extend to Monday morning. Visibilities often one mile or less. Also again there is a slight reverb on her voice, either self-imposed from one transmitter, or from two slightly unsynchronized transmitter sites. All the listed 2598 broadcasts are from six stations in Newfoundland & Labrador, or adjacent Quebec (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 19 at 1505, S9+10 of dead air except for one syllable which breaks thru; wiggle that patchcord! OK on 15230, 11760. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13568, 13634, 13767, 13834, 13901, 13967, 14033, 14100-trace, approx., spurblobs out of RHC 13700, readable both in FM and AM but not SSB, and with the F# tone in FM, progressively weaker toward the outskirts where only the tone may giveaway. Now intruding into 20m hamband where maybe some of them will notice and complain; to CO2KK? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2017 monitoring: not confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, nominal time 0415 UT Sunday January 19: checked at 0427, 0452, 0509, 0533, 0558, 0630, various ham news shows. Did WOR play before 0400, after 0630, or never? Next:

** U S A. 9330.0, Jan 19 at 1550, WBCQ-6 still off the air. Allan has twitted nothing more about this blown screen bypass capacitor since Jan 17, even in a new one today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, UT Sunday Jan 19 at 0702, KAAY LR AR again in dead air until gospel music start at 0705. At least they are not totally haywire like last weekend. No sign of an harmonic on 2180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2182-USB, Jan 19 at 0636, YL voice JBA briefly, nothing further for a minute. Since hearing a prolonged AM carrier here I pay more attention to this once-important maritime calling and distress frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7421.6-USB, Jan 19 at 1552, 2-way in Spanish, not exactly intruding, but too close to Chinese on 7420-AM, i.e. CNR1 jamming RFA via Tajikistan, and tough luck for PBS Nei Menggu, Hohhot 839 site which ought to have 7420 to itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
