Glenn Hauser logs September 5-6, 2020

main updating concerns WRMI with 29 weekly frequency-airings of Wavescan, discounting several false ones; 17 of Viva Miami

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST by Alan Roe updated:

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Sept 6 at 0152 quick check confirms The Mighty Farty KBC has made its seasonal switch via GERMANY from 9925, and now a VG signal for the UT Sunday 00-02 broadcast; think I just missed Kraig Krist`s Forgotten Song spot if he is still doing that; too occupied with the 4940 matter, i.a. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [and non]. 4940, UT Sunday Sept 6 at 0100, via TWR Bonaire KiwiSDR, good signal in Spanish drama, first YL speaking, then dialog and also narration, music. Het from carrier on 4941 cuts on and off occasionally; evitable by downtuning to 4938 in AM Narrow mode. 0107 gives website and song; 0111 starts religious talk about La Fe, etc.

[Chasing this I have to forego what I planned to hear during the 01-02 UT Sunday hour, `Encore` on WRMI 5850, having remembered to check 4940 first; but will have another chance 25 hours later on 9455; and WRMI grid shows a new airing UT Thursdays at 0300 on 5800, which I guess is a repeat but could be a prepeat.]

I keep hoping for an ID break on 4940 but none between shows starting and ending at odd times, nor circa hourtops. Could this be a new Colombian SW station as implied by the following From Rafael Rodríguez, Colombia? English version:

``NEW SHORTWAVE RADIO PROJECT --- It is a new partnership project between the organizations and Fuerza de Paz; to bring the gospel in native languages to Colombia and Venezuela., has supported the installation of stations in Bolivia and Perú both in SW and FM, as well as recording studios for indigenous communities.

Fuerza de Paz and his campaign “Colombia para Cristo”, has also developed its work through radio in MW, SW and FM.

Additionally, for the medium term, they are working on the reactivation of Colombian signals at 5.910 KHz and 6.010 KHz``

Attached screenshot shows something on 4940.041 kHz, at 0242 UT Sept 5, without further explanation --- it so happens that I had an unID unlogged carrier on 4940 circa 0500? Sept 5. Along with the VOA Africans on 4930 & 4960. Onlything in Aoki is the old R. San Antonio, Perú. It seems to be missing most of the time but occasionally reported, with a Christian format.

Back to the present Sept 6: at 0117, clips of ``I had a dream`` and ``sieg heil`` to intro next show, `Lecciones de la Historia` about Babylon citing bible verses.

At 0120 I check my own R75 reception on 4940: JBA carrier, but the intermittent carrier on 4941 is stronger. At 0136, Bonaire in synch mode tuned to 4940.00 says its carrier -1.6 Hz, and steady. At 0142 het cuts on again as Lecciones show is terminating; music break; 0146 bible verse about Jeová, another song. 0152 intros a 20-minute program. I suspend for a while at 0200-0300 in order to hear `Weekend Radio` on WCLV webcast. 0300 recheck, 4940 is still S9 at Bonaire with a song. 0325 I check again here, and now it`s JBA talk at S9/+10 vs HSNL. Recheck Bonaire at 0345, now it`s JBA there, so much weaker it should be some other station after sign-off, but none are known.

Idea that this 4940 might be a new Colombian is enforced by the ``Colombian content`` of that web reference which I look up later, to find:

``Colombian Film written and directed by Lisa & Alethia Stendal

On a mountain in Colombia, paramilitary forces have Marxist rebels cornered against a high ridge without food. In search of a way out, the guerrillas ask an old friend (a missionary they had held hostage and released some 20 years ago) for the number of a humanitarian priest in hopes of finding someone to bring food to the mountain. The missionary mistakes the priests' name for the head paramilitary leader and inadvertently gives the guerrilla commanders the wrong number. Through a humorous confusion two sworn enemies end up face to face in an emotional encounter that unveils the very core of Colombia's conflict and the journey each one must take to finally find peace in a lifetime of war.


Película Colombiana escrita y dirigida por Lisa & Alethia Stendal

En una Montaña en Colombia fuerzas paramilitares tienen a un grupo Guerrillero a corralado en una alta cordillera, sin comida. En busca de una salida, los guerrilleros le piden a un viejo amigo (un misionero que 20 años atrás habían secuestrado y liberado) por el teléfono de un cura reconocido en la zona por sus obras humanitarias, con la esperanza de hallar a alguien que les lleve comida a la montaña. El misionero confunde el nombre del padre con el de un paramilitar y sin darse cuenta le da a los guerrilleros el número equivocado. A través de una confusión llena de humor, dos enemigos terminan cara a cara en un encuentro emocional que destapa el núcleo del conflicto en Colombia y el recorrido que cada uno debe tomar para finalmente encontrar la paz en medio de una vida llena de guerra.``

The film came out a few years ago. Possibly they were playing excerpt from its soundtrack. Stendals are a familiar name, as the plot seems like the life story of a missionary relative of theirs, Martin Stendal, was the force behind the still dormant Voz de tu Conciencia 6010 and Alcaraván Radio 5910, but which are still slated for revival, and in fact 6010 as Alcaraván was heard for one? night only as I reported, last March 10 UT. No report of either frequency since. Rafael Rodríguez had some contact with the stations as QSL manager.

However, Radio San Antonio, Ucayali, Perú has been reported recently active on 4940, so tentatively that is what we are getting now, not Colombia:
As received Aug 14, 2020 in Lima on 4940, ID right at the start.

As for the ethnicradio website RRR referenced, there is nothing about the current matter, only one item from this year, in June, about R. Chazuta, Peru: which is nothing but an 18-second testimonial, also for Radio Logos. Ethnic Radio is notoriously ambiguous about what they are axually doing, while soliciting donations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800 & 5950, Sept 5 at 2352, both these WRMIs are running  SMTV: more confusion. #10 on 5800 is so scheduled, but #5 on 5950 is shown as Overcomer on the frequency grid; but the 23-24 hour on the TOM System C grid shows 5850! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 6 at 0023, TONITO has just started on WTWW-2 so I switch immediately to its $tereo webcast: starts playing `Downtown` since Bob Heil in Belleville IL is right across from DNTN St Louis; and the rest is very familiar too as a rerun from last? week featuring Les Larsen playing via his SD card on a Wurlitzer type built by Alan/Allan/Allen/Alun/Alyn Organs. Last song is Que Sera, until 0054 right into Pink Floyd, The Wall (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
