Glenn Hauser logs February 23-24-25, 2020

** CUBA. 9538-9590, Feb 24 at 2220, range of splatter from filthy wall-of-noise jamming centered on 9565 vs Radio Martí. 9535 RHC barely escapes it.

9925-9980, Feb 24 at 2221, range of splatter from WON jamming centered on 9955 vs WRMI, i.e. against the Argentine historical media program `La Rosa de Tokio`, Monday being the only DOW that 9955 is in Spanish during this hour! NOT amicable. Always excessive and wasteful the DentroCuban Jamming Command. Probably jams every day at this hour, and many other unnecessary times: take that, RMI, for daring to emit any exiles! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 24 at 2328, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski vs Cuban pulse jamming against nothing else; until autocutoff at 2352:27.5*. Last check was Feb 18 until 2352:40*, 6 days ago and 12.5 seconds later, so averaging slightly over 2 seconds earlier per noctem.

My first definite timing in latest cycle was until 2355:27.5* on November 26, 2019 --- That was 90 days ago, and exactly 3.0 minutes or 180.0 seconds later, making for a very neat exact 2.00 seconds long-term average and they have not reset the timer so far, as 2 seconds a day is hardly noticeable to them. Nor could there have been any power failure over three months, as that would surely have knocked askew this inexorable slippage; speaks well for Urubamba Electric (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) 

** TAIWAN [non]. 9490, Feb 25 at 0108, no signal from RTI`s alleged 4-night test in Spanish to S America at 0100-0130 via mystery site. It was supposed to start UT Feb 23 but not checked until now. There was a JBA signal in Chinese(?) until 0100* as RTI was already scheduled direct from Taiwan so more likely audible is CNR1 jamming. It would hardly make sense to try a mostly day-path on 9 MHz band to the other worldside.

It goes off at 0100 sharp and nothing further detectable here, so I spot-check 9490 on numerous remotes starting with UTwente after confirming WOR at 0108 on 7780: Nothing there. Nor any of these until 0119: Nanning, Rockport, KFS, NSW, Tokyo, Pardinho, Florida, VE6JY, Bogota, RSA. Rockport and KFS do get some residual jamming. I think it`s safe to say the test is not on air tonight. Wolfgang Bueschel reached the same conclusion. He was getting it last night UT Feb 24, best signal via Sevilla SDR. His best guesses for site: Issoudun, Nauen or Moosbrunn, discounting Kostinbrod and Maiac (Bulgaria, Pridnestrovye) because their audio quality is not so good.

Then wb and I both asked Jeff White, now at HFCC Malaysia, to confirm whether it`s WRMI via Issoudun. I had figured this was the obvious source since RMI/TDF was already registered 9490, but unused at 0100, rather Radio República not until *0200 as I recently monitored. Jeff replies to me: ``No, we have nothing to do with these RTI tests, and TDF knows nothing about them either.`` 

BTW, Aljazeera computes that as of Feb 23, Malaysia had 22 confirmed Coronavirus cases but 15 had recovered and been released. HFCC had been planned for China but had to be removed.

A repeat of the Spanish test was supposed to be at 0300-0330 on 9500, but not heard then either by Bogotá, but a JBA carrier here UT Feb 25, probably CNR1 as scheduled. I don`t bother to check all the other remotes again. So the mystery remains: whence the tests, will they recur tomorrow, and/or become permanentized? If we do have another chance, TDOA should be invoked (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 24 at 2305, 2327 and 2350 chex, NO signal from Voice of Turkey, English to North America. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. 

I also found no such signal Feb 23 at 2340, but Wolfgang Bueschel was hearing it at 2315-2323 in Europe and via remotes in eastern America. Maybe it went off early (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9965, Feb 24 at 1513, pulse jamming vs nothing, old Radio República Costa Rica frequency, and also on 9955 now that WRMI has finished morning block; the latter also briefly jammed by continuous tones. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
17 - 23 February 2020

Solar activity was very low. No active regions with sunspots were
observed and no apparent earth-directed CMEs were detected this
period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
moderate levels on 17-19 Feb and high levels on 20-23 Feb.

Geomagnetic field activity reached active levels on 18 Feb and
active to G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm levels on 19 Feb. The
enhanced geomagnetic field activity on 18-19 Feb were attributed to
the passage of a transient solar wind feature. Active conditions
were once again observed on 21 Feb due to negative polarity CH HSS
influence. Generally quiet or quiet to unsettled conditions were
observed throughout the remainder of the week.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
24 February - 21 March 2020

Solar activity is expected to be very low throughout the outlook
period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 24 Feb-01 Mar, 05-09 Mar, and 19-21
Mar. Normal or normal to moderate levels are expected to prevail
throughout the remainder of the outlook period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach active levels on 26
Feb, 04-05 Mar, and 19 Mar due to the infuences of multiple
recurrent CH HSSs. Generally quiet or quiet to unsettled conditions
are expected to prevail throughout the rest of the outlook period
under a nominal solar wind regime.

Sophisticated Soviet spy radio discovered buried in former forest in Germany

Archaeologists digging for the remains of a Roman villa near the German city of Cologne have found a sophisticated Soviet spy radio that was buried there shortly before the fall of the Iron Curtain.
The spy radio was buried inside a large metal box that was hermetically sealed with a rubber ring and metal screws. Although the radio's batteries had run down after almost 30 years in the ground, the box hissed with inrushing air when it was opened.


"Everything in the box was carefully encased in wrapping paper — it is a factory-fresh radio," said archaeologist Erich Classen from the Rhineland Regional Association (LVR).
The buried box and the hidden radio were found in August 2019 by a team of archaeologists digging near what was once a path through the Hambach Forest, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) west of Cologne, in an area earmarked for an open-cast lignite mine and now cleared of trees.
They expected to find fragments from a Roman-age settlement thought to have been built in the area, and so they were surprised when they instead unearthed a pit and the metal box.
"We think the radio will work if a new battery is available, but we didn't try," Classen said. "Restoration work was not necessary."

Iron Curtain

The radio has been identified as a model R-394KM transmitter and receiver — code-named "Strizh," meaning "Swift" — that was manufactured in the Soviet Union in 1987. It was carried by agents into Western Europe shortly after that, and only a few years before the fall between 1989 and 1991 of the "Iron Curtain" of communism that divided Eastern and Western Europe. 
The scientists suspect agents would have used the spy radio to send secret reports back to the Soviet Union about observation of the Jülich Nuclear Research Centre, about 6 miles (10 km) west of where it was found; or of the military air base at Nörvenich, about the same distance to the southeast, where U.S. Pershing nuclear missiles were based until 1995. 
It's possible that "Stasi," or State Security Service agents from the Soviet-controlled German Democratic Republic in the east of the country buried the spy radio in West Germany for future use, Classen said.
It may also have been a back-up in case a spy's other radios were damaged or seized.
The high-frequency or shortwave radio was capable of transmitting and receiving messages as far as 750 miles (1,200 km) — far enough to reach Warsaw in Poland, which was then part of the Soviet bloc. 
But the pristine condition of the buried radio suggests that it was never used, and it was probably forgotten and left in the ground soon after the fall of the Iron Curtain, Classen said.

Spy secrets

Some features of the Soviet spy radio hint at who might have used it.
Unlike most other radios of the same model, which are labeled in Russian using the Cyrillic alphabet, the controls of the radio found in the Hambach Forest area are labeled in English and the Roman alphabet.
That suggests it was designed to be used by a German or an English speaker, rather than a Russian; but it may also have been a form of camouflage, to hide the true origins of the radio in the Soviet Union.
The paper wrapped around the radio, however, had sequences of numbers in Russian handwriting, giving positions of the dials on the radio that could be used — similar number sequences have been found on Soviet checklists, Classen said.
It's unlikely that further details of the mystery of the Hambach Forest spy radio will be found, given that it's been so long since it was buried. But the spy radio itself is now part of the LVR's collection, and it is on display at the LVR-Landes Museum in Bonn until March 29, Classen said.
Some of the ancient artifacts from the same dig are also on display in the museum, but archaeologists haven't yet determined exactly how old they are, he said. (Tom Metcalfe - Live Science Contributor for livescience.com)

FESTE NAZIONALI
Festa dell'Indipendenza in Estonia

Glenn Hauser logs February 21-22-23, 2020

** ANTARCTICA. LRA-36, 15475.98 via Brasil SDR, Feb 22, continued listening from last report: 1830 mentions a helicopter, and tries to play a song about Antarctica, 1831 succeeds, 1833 trying for a hookup with another Arg base, San Martín, but does not seem to make it; 1836 ID and `Antártida`` song, 1840 ID, mentions ``El día de la Antártida Argentina``, marking continuous presence for 116 years since 1904y. Here`s more about that:

https://www.losandes.com.ar/article/view?slug=el-dia-de-la-antartida-argentina

Still going at my next and last check of Brasil SDR at 1920. Dan Robinson said it went off at 1912 UTC, but he must have meant 2012 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.233, Feb 22 at 2253, RHC S9/+10 in distorted Spanish, off-frequency for the eleventh day. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Feb 23 at 1555, this RHC still on with S9+20 of dea air like it was an hour earlier. Think of how many poor Cubans might have had a hearty breakfast for the wasted electricity expense of just one hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 23 at 1556, China Plus relay is S9+20 but JBM, suptorted: wiggle that patchcord! Just about to end but likely thus the past bihour. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15210-15215-15220, Feb 23 at 1620, Radio Öömrang via FRANCE in DRM, first time this year that the Feb 21 original get such a repeat, altho one year they had to reschedule when the first AM one failed. VG with a few dropouts via the KC2QII KiwiSDR, as I still am not motivated to tune any DRM directly myself. Once again a couple of brief bits in English at 1626 & 1628 introducing interviews in Frisian, which I do not understand any better in DRM than in AM. Just caught tail of sign-off also in English until 1659* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Feb 23 at 0214, JBA music not // 1390 so not fifth harmonic of local KCRC. 0348 still there but at 0412 I do find it // 1390. Maybe this what I was getting at first, with enough AM carrier from the KCRC X 5 local harmonic to make it seem AM: unID 6950-USB 0143-0155: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,63445.0.html

However, earlier, Loopy Radio was on 6950.3-AM until 2340*: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,63439.0.html But this was later and not noted to be +0.3 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. As mentioned previously, Kyle Williams, president of Williams Broadcasting, LLC, licensee of 103.1 KOFM, 100.9 K265FL and its AM dog 960 KGWA, was among the speakers at The Entrepreneur 2020, a 2-day series of seminars at NWOSU sponsored in part by the Charles Koch Foundation, Feb 21 at 1930 UT -- previous one ran over and did not start until 1953. It was supposed to be audio/video-linked to three other NWOSU campi but no one showed up there. 

Despite his original billing as head of the radio stations, those are only a minor part, it seems, of his business empire, so we learned absolutely nothing about the local broadcasting scene; rather his life story of trying and failing and then succeeding. 

In the Q&A I wanted to ask him about naming his studio for a funeral home, but figured more important was, ``As a Christian who `loves people`, how can you justify broadcasting a hate-monger like Rush Limbaugh?`` Answer: ``because he loves the lord`` --- there you go! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 22 at 2300, VOT timesignal ends one sesquisecond later than WWV as usual; sign-on with totally wrong English schedule as usual, e.g. this transmission at 22-23 on 9830 which is when and where it is in summer A-seasons. Something`s always awkward at Ankara. Already off at 2349 recheck, if it lasted for entire transmission, but no collision this week of German from Turkey vs English from Germany, Mighty Farty KBC at 0000 Feb 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 410 kHz, Feb 23 at 0721 UT, ND beacon BA, which is 25 watts from Columbus - Clifford, Indiana. Altho spring storms are not yet a problem on LW/MW, I now have local line noise bothering this band only, difficultizing DX --- hard to hear anything new, as this is not either, altho I still pulled but not relogged CBC Cayman Brac on 415 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6477.5-CW, Feb 22 at 2358, V marker from KPH, the MRHS legacy station at Point Reyes, California; V/CQ marine markers are so rare these days that any really stand out. Longer message repeating, I suppose with QSX info, not copied; active weekends only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Feb 23 at 1452, K6FRC beacon audible again vs CODAR. Daily I check the entire HIFER/ISM band 13550-13570 and this is the only one I ever hear, rarely. What about all the others on this roster, including latest dates reported somewhere, 2020, 2019 or 2018y? https://www.lwca.net/sitepage/part15/index.htm In years past I had heard several of those, at least three still on the list, GNK, MTI, SZX. K6FRC shown as 13565.035, 10 wpm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) 

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2022 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports ``Fair signal of World of Radio #2022 on February 22: 1300-1330 on 15770 RMI 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu English Sat``

Also confirmed UT Sunday Feb 23 at 0432 from WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, via K9MQ KiwiSDR in IN/IL, about 5 minutes in, so started circa 0427; lots of LSB ACI, and then on 160m direct I find it full of phone signals, as happens only during a contest; amazing what a difference that make to normal ops. Earlier at 0349, 1860 here was VG S9+20. Next:

2130 UT Sunday    WRMI 7780
0130 UT Monday    WRMI 7780
0230 UT Monday    WRMI 7780 9395
0400vUT Monday    WBCQ 5130v Area 51

As acknowledged at mid-break: Our thanks this week for financial support from Karl Witsman, Danville IL, who sent a contribution via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com. One may also contribute by money order or check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Feb 22 at 2305 NO signal from WBCQ-6: oh2, another breakdown? Not for long; is there at 2350 check, only fair in Brazuguese. Apparently still on a scheduled break at 2200-2300.

9330, Feb 23 at 1919, NO signal from World`s Last Chance, supposed to be on now in Arabic, which ought to be audible tho aimed thataway. Oh3, another breakdown? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130.0, Feb 23 at 0001 tune-in, WBCQ dead air, shortly ``Loituma Girl`` IS and TimTron opening, S9+10. Meanwhile, other WBCQ on 7490.2v was also S9 of dead air at 0001. Later in evening without measuring, noticed closer to 7490.1v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9350, Sat Feb 22 after 2100, WWCR-2 with `Encore` classical music from Radio Tumbril in Scotland. Brice announces that this airing will end after next week, as will the WBCQ at 0100 UT Monday on 7490 --- but it`s moving to WRMI, starting Feb 29 [UT March 1], UT Sunday 0100 on 5850 to the NW, and UT Monday 0300 on 9455 to the NNW. Glad this excellent show will continue on SW! But these WRMI frequencies are not webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Feb 23 at 0125, WTWW-2 not checked earlier, but no theatre organ music now; was it earlier or never? Now it`s rock; and at 0211 I notice 5085 is off the air, while $tereo webcast continues. At 0238 DJ recommends SWLs tune to the webcast --- but there are no SWLs at the moment; 0350 check it`s on again with rock DJ requests (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050, Feb 23 at 0645, mystery carrier here again, S8-S9 but no modulation audible vs 5040 RHC splash. Another possibility: like the 11850 transmitter, a +10 kHz JBA spur from it; but cannot hear a match at minus 10 on 5030, altho more splash there from 5025. Further, the crummy modulation of 5040 is not like that on 11850 if it were same transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13671.7, Feb 23 at 1455, JBA carrier. Does not correlate with 13820 OCB, 13740 or 13700 RHC as spurs, and no siblings found in quick scan. Possibly a local device or birdie but not there at 1920 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.96, Feb 22 at 1803, via Pardinho SP KiwiSDR, LRA36 ID in passing and again at 1804 as ``la radio más austral del mundo``, seems discussion with station manager in Argentine accent, of the station and history of the base. It seems that 22 Feb is the anniversary of something. Tnx to tip from Dan Robinson who was hearing it the previous hour also via this remote and still probably the one at Gaithersburg MD, who`s been on RX #07 since 1716. This interrupts my listening to Mozart at the Met! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Continued listening: 1830 mentions a helicopter, and tries to play a song about Antarctica, 1831 succeeds, 1833 trying for a hookup with another Arg base, San Martín, but does not seem to make it; 1836 ID and `Antártida`` song, 1840 ID, mentions ``El día de la Antártida Argentina``, marking continuous presence for 116 years since 1904. Here`s more about that: https://www.losandes.com.ar/article/view?slug=el-dia-de-la-antartida-argentina (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This interrupts my listening to Mozart at the Met! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.2+, Feb 21 at 2150, RHC still off-frequency at day #11. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 22 at 0647, no signal from VON. It`s usually there always with a bigsig (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 7138-LSB, Feb 22 at 0654, H44MS calling CQ DX over and over, calls fonetikally. Much better signal than we ever get from SIBC on 9545 or 5020; what does that tell us? So I then check 5020 and get a JBA carrier next to Cuba.

Info from:
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/h44ms

He`s really a German who makes extended visits to SI, currently 5 Feb to 20 April. ``H44MS is call of DL2GAC during DX vacations in Solomon Islands since 1990 Main interests: DX, IOTA activations, award hunting: US-county hunter.

QSL: via DL2GAC, BUREAU or DIRECT``, detailed instruxions for SWLs. NO info on exactly which Solomon Island he is upon, but apparently not Shortland, next to Bougainville, since that was a 1995 DX-pedition (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 21 at 2301, VOT English is on today but VP signal; on contrary, Wolfgang Bueschel found it much better: ``5960.004, noted tremendous powerhouse of TRT Emirler site, Turkish string instrument played and then final announcement at 2353 UT followed. S=9+45dB or -33dm full powerhouse noted here in Germany and Belgium-Netherland border remote SDR rx. At 23.55:07 UT sudden crash 'TX down OFF' midst on program in progress. CHINA, Now after that TRT procedure, heard co-channel PBS Xinjiang Chinese service from Urumqi bcast center, - 72 Hertz less fq on 5959.928 kHz measured. S=8-9 or -70dBm less strong. 73 wb`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Feb 22 at 1452, K6FRC beacon is JBA, first time heard since Feb 5, always around this time of day if at all. Another Californian with a lot more power and a lot more kHz is still inaudible after 1600 when KVOH should be on 17775 with Wavescan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13724, 13756, 13772, 13788, 13804; 13836, 13852, 13868, 13884, JBA carriers around these approx. frequencies, Feb 22 at 1455, i.e. spurs out of 13820 Radio Martí, Grimesland, NC. More like JJBBA; easily overlooked but since matching audio on one of them to 13820 a few days ago, I know what these are, at ~16 kHz intervals from fundamental.

Today no spurs from 13700 RHC; and 13740 RHC blox one of the RM spurs. At 1525, 13740 RHC is still on with dead air. I start to try to measure 13724 exactly to get a precise picture of the spurfield, but just too weak and interrupted by some pulsing QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2022 monitoring: confirmed Friday Feb 21 at 2300 on WRMI, initially not audible under jamming on 9955, then becomes JBA; not very good on remotes in E USA or Quebec, but fair with jamming at Bogotá, and good at Pardinho. By ending 2328, finally atop jamming direct to OK.

Also confirmed UT Saturday Feb 22 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5010, fair S9 but noisy; 7780, poor S7-S9; 5850, good S9+10/20, as to be expected from the different azimuths, 5850 being right at us. Next:

** U S A. 7490.2, UT Sat Feb 22 at 0101, WBCQ `AAAWWW` is yet again substituted with no AAA, rather Pirate Joe, starts talking over WTO theme, very rambling, messing with settings like AW often does; says nothing wrong with Allan, just continuing his sabbatical. Poor reception, fair S9 but noisy and fading down. I`ll leave it to John in case there is anything significant. Recheck at 0145, 7490 reception is better and much stronger than // 5130 which is now detectable.

John Carver reports, first at 0104 UT Feb 22: ``Tonight's AAWWW --- Glenn, No decent signal on 7490. 5130 transmitter is on with dead air and no program. Will continue to listen. John`` --- and at 0209:

``Tonight's AAWWW --- No readable signal on 7490. Transmitter was up on 5130 but just dead air. Dead air continued until 0127 when Pirate Joe popped up out of nowhere in mid-sentence talking about community radio and pirate radio. Then was castigating the government for their stand on pirate radio which soon morphed into talk about homeless Vietnam Vets and then back to pirate radio and then back to community broadcasting. Pirate Joe mentioned that Allan and Angela would be back in the spring. Program was off the air at 0200 and 5130 went into the Hal Turner show. John, Mid-North Indiana``

``Spring`` ? So that means no earlier than March 21, no later than June 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, Feb 22 at 0701-0705:30 UT, KAAY Little Rock still provides a ToH deadairhole, missing most of SRN news before gospel music pops back on; all I could hear without really trying was Spanish, XEAU (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050, Feb 22 at 0655, weak carrier in 5040 RHC splash, and nothing on 5055 which might be 4KZ. Certainly not WWRB, and nothing else scheduled at this hour, not even China or India, which would not be propagating this early anyway. Europirate? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Propagation News – 23 February 2020

The week got off to a good start with the ARRL International DX CW contest. Contacts into the western US states from the UK, including California, Washington and Colorado, were all possible on 20 metres.

On Tuesday the Earth was hit by a high-speed solar wind stream from a coronal hole, which sent the Kp index to four. The unsettled conditions continued before the Kp index hit a hefty five in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

There were reports of auroral contacts on the higher bands. Luckily, the disturbance tailed off on Thursday with the Kp index finally returning to settled levels.

The solar flux index remained at 71 during this time, reflecting a lack of sunspots.

Next week NOAA predicts the Sun will continue with a solar flux index of 71 with zero sunspots, although new regions can occur at any time. The Kp index is predicted to remain around two to three, but with a rise to four around the 26th and 27th due to a returning coronal hole.

Interest in the VP8PJ DXpedition to South Orkney is beginning to rise. At the time of writing the ship Braveheart had just arrived and the station may be on the air some time this weekend.

This may be a difficult path, but rsgb.org/predtest suggests that the best time for a short-path contact may be through the night on 40m, with a peak around 6am. There may also be a long-path opening around 8am-noon on 20 or 30 metres.

VHF and up:

I’m sure there were wires and beam elements flapping about in the winds last week, so now that we’re all used to this, you should be able to cope with the coming week too!

It’s looking very much like the unsettled weather continues with low pressure systems tracking across the far north of Britain producing generally windy weather throughout, and at times very windy weather with gales again likely over the north.

The upshot of all this leaves no sign of high pressure tropo propagation to speak of. It is again a case of rain scatter for the GHz bands as the active rain-bearing weather fronts or squally showers pass by, with little else to offer as a variation.

The Sun and the Moon are close to eclipse this Sunday, so sky noise will be very high. Once today’s event is over, it’s quite low for the rest of the week. Moon declination is rising and goes positive again on Wednesday, meaning lengthening Moon windows with the Moon up during the day. This coincides with apogee so path losses will be at their highest.

Aside from EME and satellite operation, keep looking for random meteor scatter QSOs around dawn, when the Earth is rotating towards the main meteor flux, to keep the VHF DX coming. (RSGB)

Wolfgang Bueschel log

re RTI Spanish test series via 9490 kHz from Febr 23.

Checked the 9490 kHz channel this day-before Febr 22:

9490 kHz 00-01 UT CBSC RTI Chinese and e q u a l  strength CNR1 jamming
against RTI 100 kW 352 degr outlet from Tamsui site.
Noted in northern Tokyo remote site.

9490 kHz At 00.58 UT in Alberta S=7 or -89dBm scratching jamming from
RadioCuba {Bejucal?}, also heard in Detroit, Rochester and Massachusetts.

So, how will be the RTI test signal tomorrow ?

At this hour Taiwan is in full sun shine, Grayline is at Calgary, Montana,
Dencer Colorado, New Mexico, Chihahua, Zacatecas, Acapulco, Pacific Ocean.

All easterly, Central AM, and all SoAM are on dark. But direct service
from Tamshui TWN would only reliable signal in 19 meterband along the
grayline.

In Alberta CAN noted some Asian services
around 00.15 UT Febr 22 check:

16100even CNR1 jamming against TWN SOH.
15120even CUB  CRI Spanish via RadioCuba Quivica TITAN site, S=7
15310.002 PHL  BBC via AGM United States Agency for Global Media (USAGM)
          Tinang Philippines site, S=7-8.

          Tinang the Philippines.
15435.003 PHL FEBC Bocaue in Shan language, S=6.

OTHR on center 16010 kHz, also hopped to 15986 - 15995 kHz
at 00.20 UT on Febr 22.

11780.008 the only stronger signal in 25 mb,

Glenn Hauser logs February 20-21, 2020

** CHINA. 7255, Feb 21 at 1337, Russian discussion mentioning some Chinese names. Chances are high that any Russian heard on SW will be from CRI --- certainly not from Russia! --- and indeed this is, an hour via Shijiazhuang site, 500 kW at 37 degrees, thUSward (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.23, Feb 20 at 2340, JBA carrier as RHC continues way off-frequency for the tenth day; VP propagation now, but earlier in afternoon normally inbooms. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA. 7140, Feb 21 at 0426, constant JBA carrier, presumed VOBME but nothing on their other frequency 7180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Feb 21 at 1608 tune-in to yearly Radio Öömrang broadcast via FRANCE --- discussion mostly in Frisian, some high German, and brief intros in English at 1626 and 1628. Longer outro in English at 1658 with contact info and credits, and to be heard again on 21 Feb 2021; 1659:30 to open carrier and off 1700*. First checked on home receiver, then on remotes in eastern USA, with VG reception. I was distracted during closing but did not hear a mention of the DRM repeat supposedly 48 hours later same frequency and time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 640, Feb 21 at 1319 UT and still 1330, dead air from KWPN Moore, as happens frequently; vs fast SAH and CCI probably led by KFI, which without KWPN at night would have a clear shot into OK (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAO TOME. 7255.0, Feb 21 at 0427, uncertain African language S9-S7, 0429 mbira song, 0430 hilife music. This hour is VOA Zimbabwe service a.k.a. Studio 7, mixture of Shona, Ndebele and a little English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 9490, Feb 21 at 0106, no signal from Issoudun, and maybe no jamming either yet; tho registered to start at 0100 with RMI programming, i.e. Radio República --- but I think that only apply once CubAmerican DST be in effect from March 9.

Checking because RTI has publicized that it will experiment with revived Spanish broadcasts UT Feb 23-26 at 0100-0130 on 9490, site not specified but surely FRANCE. And again at 0300-0330 on 9500, because jamming and R.R. will still be on 9490 at that time. Voluntarily picking a frequency ever subject to Cuban jamming is foolish, as it may well extend beyond the ``necessary`` hours [see TURKEY].

Sure enough at 0157 recheck, jamming is already running on 9490, and the ISS carrier cuts on just in time at *0159:39, but any programming to follow is inaudible under jamming. Propagation from Europe is degraded anyway now, K-index 4 at 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 20 at 2346, VOT English made it on air today, but now wrapping up with canned totally wrong A-19 English schedule, as I have previously explained in detail; which usually plays at sign-on. Something`s always awkward at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 6125, Feb 21 at 0400, Cuban noise jamming against Radio Martí is still running altho RM has just closed this frequency as always (and no longer separate TV Martí soundtrack, right?). Cannot detect VOT English to western N America as scheduled, until 0405 starts to become audible under jamming but unusable. No better at 0435, still heavy jamming atop VOT music(?).

This is absolutely self-defeating, of all possible frequencies picking one right next timewise to Cuban jamming; could be on 6120 or 6130 both of which are open tho also adjacent frequency-wise. Plenty of other open spaces on band. I also wonder if 6125 VOT transmission be as erratic as 5960 one five hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7178-LSB, Feb 21 at 1342, net in unknown language, mostly strong signals, repeatedly discussing marijuana; occasional bits of English; one guy with a rather melodic tone and prolonged vowels. One call until 1351 sounds like KH0I#, last letter not clear. KH0`s are in Saipan and Guam per ARRL lookup, but I think these are closer. Still going at 1459 in contact with N4KH, VA6RB, and K0ADI?

N4KH is SPIKES JR, JAMES B, HUNTSVILLE, AL 35803-2095.
VA6RB is Roldan Gloria Bartolome, CALGARY, AB T3M 0S3 Canada
K0ADI is KITTLEMAN, ROD A, NIXA, MO 65714

At first I was guessing the language could be Indonesian? Or Tagalog? Now I wonder if Chamorro, or a language around here, Marshallese. Online searches for a net at this time on this frequency are unsuccessful. Anyone know what this is? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085 & much weaker parasitic spurs about 5072 & 5097, Feb 21 at 1327, WTWW-2 is running rock music, so again has it stayed on all night? You never know (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
