Glenn Hauser logs September 7-8, 2020

** BRAZIL. 11780, September 7 at 2329, RNA is S9/+20 with suptorted music, while modulation is OK on // 6180 but only S7-S9. Then full ID not mentioning 6180, but 980, 11780 and a few more AM/FM frequencies of R Nacional in other cities. I keep seeing logs of 11780 by others taking no note of the awful modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Sept 7 at 1355-1400: none in the 16s, 15s, 14s, 13s, 12s, 11s until: 11170 JBA carrier. By now it is almost 1400 so will it cut off air as typical then? Yes (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Sept 7 at 2336: None in the 17s, 13s, 12s, 11s, or 10s, but just in the current LUHF/MUF window: 14690 Chinese with flutter S3-S5; 14980 CC JBA S1; 15840 CC S2 vs buzz; 15870 JBA carrier; 16100 CC JBA vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7380, Sept 7 circa 2315, RHC English for Africa is still AWOL; not on previously used 9720 or 11880 either. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 8 at 0034, R. Progreso is still gone. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670 & 6070, Sept 7 at 2125, Uncle Bill`s special via Channel 292 is in progress but no signals on these at UTwente; 3955 has a poor S6-S7, insufficient for easy listening; at this time talk and Cuban music; 2133 FTIOM announcement; 2138 must have proceeded to UBMP with banjo; 2146 John of VORW is a bit more readable mentioning this Ch. 292 special; 2150 ``Betty Davis Eyes``; 2157 Bill`s closing announcement has an echo, problem or SFX? 2200 brief German announcement which still pronounces station name in English, and off. By end was slightly stronger (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 389-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0611 UT, ND beacon DDP, 1000 watts from San Juan - Dorado (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday Sept 7 at 2203, REE English has not been canceled: Alison Hughes is back, after hours of dead air on Friday. Quick check on UTwente which altho reading S9+20, is not good for 9690 due to heavy ChiCom ACI from 9685. She`s interviewing someone stuck in their apartment, quarantined I guess (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 7 at 2202, poor JBA S5 signal at UTwente; I guess VOT is on but normally is blasting in to that SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 359-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0613 UT, ND beacon SDR, which is 25 watts from Snyder, Texas; tough copy with QRM, QSB; note there is a SDY in Sidney, Montana, 100 watts.

281-MCW kHz, Sept 7 at 0620 UT, NDB DMO, 25 watts from Sedalia, Missouri (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2050 monitoring: confirmed Monday September 7 from 1800:42 on IRRS 7290-AM via Bulgaria; tune-in at 1755 to weak carrier; 1755.4 cut on stronger carrier; 1758.8 cut on modulation of rock song; 1759.9 sign-on falsely claiming this is in reduced-carrier SSB mode best tuned in synchronous USB; Feature Story News headlines, then WOR. Continues OK past 1805; recheck closing to 1829:38 when I am cut off after `` I end with a ----`` [standard disclaimer]. All this via UTwente at S9+20 with constant plus/minus 10 splash no matter what the bandwidth; but the 7291 RTTY warble is not heard.

Also confirmed UT Tue Sept 8 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+15 at UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Tue Sept 8 at 0330 on WRMI 5800, VG S9+10/20 at TWR Bonaire. Next:

** U S A. 7490.06, Monday Sept 7 at 2317, WBCQ playing African music; o yes, UB announces Timbuktu, Mali, so this is a bonus broadcast of UBMP, 25 hours after the original which I already heard Sunday at 2200. This has happened before, but I don`t think UB has mentioned it, as cannot be relied upon. Sked shows Available Time Slot at 2300 Mondays but for only a semihour, so did `Camp Constitution Radio` interrupt it at 2330? Anyhow it`s back to Bill after 0000 UT Tuesday for FTIOM in its regular slot, by now VG S9/+10.

(7490), UT Tue Sept 8 at 0213 tune-in to Uncle Bill`s Labor Day special `WBCQ Works` presenting his and other programs; for this at the computer I have switched to webcast, which lately has been slow-starting, but Larry has not terminated it yet. Now in ``Old Time Religion`` gospel tune with parody lyrix, but I could not understand the new title. Then some Weird Al, ``Dog Eat Dog``; 0223 over to Sir Jack Scratchy of `Behaviour Night`; 0234 `Lost Discs Radio Show`. Each plugs WBCQ and the times their shows are mainly heard. 0245 cosmikdebris reverb and Jane but I don`t hear a program name, 0258 UB wrapping up offering special eQSL for reports to a gmail address I missed. There will be another one of these around Thanksgiving (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 8 at 0015, 0033 chex, VOV is still missing from WHRI relay when it should be in English, Spanish, so has it been totally canceled? WHRI itself is still programming on 5920 at 0022; and by 0212 on 7315. I want to see what program sked now shows, but website won`t display them any more, unless I am being misdirected to wrong pages, where you may only search schedules if you enter all the data correctly --- but they go nowhere. The streaming page of Angels 1, 2 and 6 is also dead. Maybe they are winding down for the big sale to WBCQ?

This page displays the new VOV logo! Yet schedule info is dated 2013! It also says VOV was founded on Sept 7, 1945, so happy anniversary! Nothing found there about WHRI or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4940, Sept 8 at 0105, JBA signal at Bonaire TWR SDR, and at 0337 JBA carrier; like last night, unlike Saturday night = UT Sunday when Spanish gospel with no IDs was inbooming there. Bryan Clark was also hearing it in NZ, and discussed with Mauno Ritola, noting Colombian content, so related to LV Conciencia? But no IDs either. They make no mention of R San Antonio, Peru, which as I pointed out was active in August on 4940. Seems to me that Fuerza de Paz would either be using the Peruvian or got it to agree to cede the frequency. Bryan`s Sept 7:

``The apparently new South American on 4939.996 gave reasonable reception here around 0630 to 0715 UTC today - I noted it weakly around 0530 and followed it past 0800 but the clearest signal was around 0645 when they had some form of radio drama. It didn`t seem overtly religious in nature and the Latin rhythms heard later weren't reminiscent of an evangelical broadcaster to my ears anyway.

Have attached an audio file in case you can hear something that clearly identifies the station, so would welcome any feedback. Mailing addresses in Costa Rica and Bolivia are given. Interestingly my reception here in northern NZ was better than what I could find from Kiwi SDRs in Bonaire, Colombia and Chile. 73, Bryan`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5010, Sept 7 at 0634, open carrier of S9/+10/20. Likely WRMI-14 for some reason, supposed to be off the air 0230-1100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11101-USB, Sept 7 at 1359, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, encountered during my CNR1 jammer survey (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
