Glenn Hauser logs April 25-26, 2020


Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update:

1) Austria - ORF/OE1: Added station (thanks to Glenn Hauser)
2) France - RFI: Added links to programme and Facebook pages of Musique du Monde
3) Greece - V of Greece: As VoG now relays the Proto (1st) programme, in place of the ERT external services, added links to this service.
Additionally, Proto may relay overnight either the Deftero (2nd) or Trito (3rd) programme, so added links to these as well (with thanks to Richard Langley in WOR iog for initial tip)
4) Lao - Lao National R: Added links for this station (with thanks to
David Kernick, Interval Signal Online, via WOR iog for initial tip)
5) UK - BBC WS: Updated link to "regional schedules"
6) UK - European Music R: Deleted entry (the former archived website/domain has now been deleted)
7) USA - R Free Asia: Added link to RFA website (thanks to an initial tip by Bill Harms in faceBook group)
8) USA - WEWN: Updated link to frequency schedules

Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be late
May. Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, April 25)

** CUBA. 11880, April 25 at 2232, RHC Portuguese is S9+20 but very distorted. 11 seconds later the same thing is heard on 11700 at S9+10, a bit crackly but not distorted. The former bodes ill for the quality of English to follow at 2300. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 15370 also supposed to be on now but a JBA carrier and nothing else on 19m is any better, degraded propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760 // suptorted 15140, April 26 at 1512 check, RHC in Spanish, another Sunday missing Esperanto. Plenty of it can be read at  including items with recent dates and linx to audio of April 5, 12 and 19 shows, and maybe will add 26 yet missing from SW. Something`s always wrong at Radio Havano Kubo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 26 at 1932, NO signal from RHC English. But: 15370, April 26 at 1932, RHC French is S9+20, OK modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC. On rare occasions 15140 programs go out instead on spy-numbers frequency 16180, but not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 15130, April 26 at 1932, JBA music S2-S3; listed as NHK Japanese relay; hardly anything else trans-Atlantic on band and even Cuba missing from 15140 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, April 26 at 0616, TGAV is still on late and stronger than usual at S9+10/20 during sermon in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** HAWAII. 5000, April 26 at 0619, WWVH with jittery Doppler flutter on carrier when heard with BFO, sign of severe prop disturbance, very unusual over such a low-latitude path; and NO signal from WWV Colorado which is normally atop here; it can be heard on 2500 tho weaker than usual. Just missed the 0618 propagation report on WWV, but 3-hourly e-mail from WWV says at 0600 the K-index was only 2, SF 69, and no storms observed or predicted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 7310, Sat April 25 at 2245, RRI S3-S7 poor concluding DX Mailbag until 2246 just as in DX/SWL/MEDIA programs starting at 2240 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 25 at 2228, VOT English is on today, Turkish songs at S7-S9; no RTTY now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, April 25 at 1824, WLCR via WBCQ is in English, not German as previously scheduled, only fair S5-S8. Their sked now shows German at 19-22 UT and wrong conversion to 8-11 pm local, tho they got French to France right with a 2-hour difference (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, April 26 at 1439, no signal from this WRMI which normally achieves at least a JBA carrier; also no signal at 1512 via remotes in Maine, Holland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
