Glenn Hauser logs February 23-24, 2020

** 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)

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Feb 23 at 2050, jazz music to 2057* with no announcement, must have been APR via MWV English hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.9-AM, Feb 23 at 2351 unID pirate music JBA at S5-S6. A few other reports as unID as if on 6925, 2330-0004:,63491.0.html In May 2017, Captain Morgan Shortwave was on this off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 12030, Mon Feb 24 at 1511, S4-S6 open carrier, presumably REE which on weekdays is supposed to start at 1600, weekends 1500. Beam to ME but this early, often better here off the back than 9690 to us off the front (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Feb 23 at 2340, VOT English to us is AWOL again. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 366 kHz, Feb 23 at 0710 UT, ND beacon EOK, which is 25 watts from Keokuk, Iowa; new one here; mixing with YMW and dash, 500 watts from Maniwaki, Quebec, heard often without EOK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7615-USB, Feb 24 at 1525, Civil Air Patrol net with YL-sounding NCS; quick check-ins by Mockingbirds 50, 8 and 34, who are in Mississippi (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2022 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday February 24 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9 via indoor random wire during storm, but fadeout by 0145.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 24 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair via UTwente SDR, but no signal on // 9395; nor here nor on various SDRs to the SSE, NE or NW; yet 9455 is OK in New York, so I conclude 9395 is NOT on the air as it and 9455 are on exactly same azimuth 355. Yet by 0409, 9395 is S9+10 with TOMBS. WOR via WRN webcast also confirmed at 0230.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 24 from 0400 on Area 51 webcast; WBCQ 5130 JBA at 0409 & 0427, now back on external longwire.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 24 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, VP under wall of noise jamming, but OK on webcast. F-G on the Bogotá KiwiSDR but not at all on the other one in Colombia. Next:

** U S A. 9330.0, Feb 23 at 2045 & 2340, WBCQ-6 WLC Radio is off again; by Feb 24 at 0657 apparently on with music talk, JBA S1-S2 for 500 kW? MUF reigns every time. On at full strength S9/+10, Feb 24 at 1517, gospel huxter in English about Genesis. So it`s erratic, why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
