Glenn Hauser logs June +22-23, 2020

** AUSTRIA [or non?]. Re my June 17 log on 5930, Wolfgang Bueschel replied:

``AUSTRIA/OMAN, BBC London Dari language service towards AFG noted on June 19th at 0030 UT program start. 5930even via ORS Moosbrunn Austria relay site, SELDOM SEEN from Moosbrunn: accompanied by two BUZZ strings either sideband, +/- 100, 200 Hertz BUZZ string distance visible and heard too. Annoying sound character. Birds chirp twitter like radioplay program for children heard in Dari language.

S=9+15dB strength at 0030 UT noted in Liverpool, England backlobe.
S=7-8 -80dBm fair backlobe signal in remote Perseus unit at AJ1L in Massachusetts US state east coast.
S=9+20dB in remote Perseus at Athens Greece at 0038 UT.
S=9+15dB in remote Perseus at Doha Qatar ME.

also \\ 6195even via ENC Encompass Digital Media Services, (ex Babcock) relay site at Al Seela OMA, S=9+20dB, weak and tiny signals at Greece, Germany, and Liverpool in England. 73 wb df5sx (June 19 at 00.40 UT)``

So what do you think about this? I cannot tell whether you doubt it`s really Moosbrunn, rather Oman; or it is Moosbrunn, but defective? (gh)

``In past decade ORF / ORS Vienna Moosbrunn never went odd fq, and also not happened at ex Babcock Al Seela Oman. Signal from Oman and UAE would be very low on Tulsa / Enid target in wild western Drumpfland.

so I guess: there remains a question mark about the 5930 reception center origin on that day (wolfie, June 23)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRIA. 9630+, June 23 at 0512, slightly off-frequency LAH from something, Aparecida, Brasil reactivated? But choral singing sounds too African. 0514 tonal African language talk interspersed, mentions Rwanda? Not on at 0620 recheck. Aoki/NDXC shows at 0500-0530 it`s AWR in Hausa via AUSTRIA. When I measured it, I got 9630.001 or .002, so I may have made a mistake vs hearing a LAH with BFO on 1-kHz stepping (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 12030, June 23 at 0626, S7-S9 of dead air, the SSOB as hardly any signals but JBA carriers are audible on the 25m band. At first thought maybe REE SPAIN testing, as Ivo has reported them sometimes doing that during off-hours; but no equivalent signals from anything in Europe. Aoki/NDXC shows at 0600-0629 it`s supposed to be BBC French via Pinheira. Was the entire semihour silent? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, June 23 at 2200, no signal from VOT today; altho I do not get around to rechecking later in the hour, since at 2200 my first priority is BBC World News America on PBS/OETA --- but the feed *into* OETA keeps breaking up; so I switch to World channel, OETA-2, which runs France 24 news at same time, certainly would be worthwhile when not eclipsed by simulBBC, except F24 employs a lot of original languages so you may have to keep an eye on screen all the time for open captioning translation; even some French is so rapid and idiomatic that I can hardly follow it. And at 2230 it`s over to CBS and/or NBC TV News. If I can stay awake having missed an earlier naptime. But I digressed. Back at 2200 Monday I also quickchecked 9690 to find SPAIN on the air and starting English, but signal less solid than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2039 monitoring: confirmed Monday June 22 from 1800.5 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria, via UTwente SDR; rough modulation and splash from 7280/7300 inevitable, but no interruptions noted in spotchex until finale at 1829.5, ``...standard dis---`` claimer cut off, into music fill. I tuned in about 1756 when Iran was already off but IRRS not yet on. IRRS cut on at *1758 big open carrier diminishing splash and 7291 RTTY but not eliminating them. 1759 JIP modulation of unknown report in progress about FB and AI systems; 1800 cut that off for simple IRRS ID, not full sign-on, right into quick FSN headlines from Washington, and WOR starting in about one semiminute.

Also confirmed UT Tue June 23 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG at UTwente. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Thanks this week for financial support from Ron Howard, Monterey CA, who sent a generous contribution in memory of Brian Alexander, by check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, UT Tue June 23 at 0247, WRMI with unknown far-right, far-Christian talk show interviewing an author. I put up with it hoping for some program ID, but none heard as it stopped at 0257.5 for Spanish hymn fill music, 0259.5 WRMI ID, 0300 another (same?) untitled talk show now about the precarious (?) financial situation of Wells Fargo.

There is nothing to account for this on the WRMI skedgrids. Transmission sked shows 9395 with System F before 0300, then System C = Overcomer. BTW, what I was hearing not // Overcomer or any other WRMI. The individual System program grids do not show any such thing: 9395 not on System C until 0400; System F only on 5850 before 0300. System G does show 9395 starting at 0300 with Oldies. Sigh; sadly, just another example of totally contradictory, incomplete, outofdate WRMI scheduling info.

That reminds me, I forgot again to check out the new show by that guy in Perú wanting contact with N American SWLs, `Quorum Radio`, UT Tuesday 0200-0300 on 5850, but it plays again (or a different episode?) UT Wednesday 0200-0300 on 5850. I`ve already set an ATS-909 alarum for 0158 and hope I can then remember what`s it for (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
