Glenn Hauser logs January 24-25, 2021

** BRAZIL. 11905-11910-11915, Jan 25 at 0445, checking RNA DRM into TWR Bonaire SDR: ``Madrugada Nacional 96.1`` ID and romantic music, partly in English, ``Kiss Me, Baby`` at 0454. Frequent ID breaks between tunes. SN 16.7 dB, 12.46 kbps with ``perfect`` reception tho fi not so hi; also with Service 2 Journaline one-line headline rotation mostly concerning COVID; but no mentions of Bolsonaro (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13841 approx., Jan 25 around 1500 --- my logpen failed to ink at first --- F# tone signature of RHC spurblob, too close to the BS on 13845-AM WWCR; then finding lots of others, back to ``normal`` pattern of circa plus/minus 69 kHz multiples from 13700-AM: 13769 S8, 13631, 13562, 13494 S4 vs CODAR, 13426 trace; 13908, 13976; and 14045 F# trace. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Jan 25 at 0006, VP S3-S4 of dense low music. Mushy reduced carrier? These logs say it`s Mushroom Radio:,77218.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2070 monitoring: confirmed Sunday January 24 from 2300:05 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.934, S8-S9; ending at 2329:05 barely not cut off. Stood by earlier to hear carrier with WBCQ IS & ID loop cut on at *2256:08, no ID or s/on but a bit of music from 2259:45 before WOR start.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 25 at 0043 the 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30/40 direct.

Also confirmed UT Monday January 25 at 0230 on WRMIs: 7780, S9+5/15 via UTwente; 5800, S9+10/25 via Bonaire SDR; and WRN web/satcast

Also confirmed Monday January 25 from 1900:49 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria, via UTwente SDR usual bilateral splasheral from 7280 Vietnam and 7295 East Turkistan, standard denunciation, inevitable but WOR still readable if you upput. 29 minutes later ending with pause rather than upcut before ID and more FSN. For timings this time also via UTwente, as Alan Gale suggested, I compare with MSF on 60 kHz and DCF77 on 77.5, with a clearer minute-marker on the former, hardly any internet delay compared to WWV direct. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** VENEZUELA. 6200+RCUSB, Jan 25 at 0433 tune-in via Bonaire KiwiSDR, immediate ID as ``ROCV en 6200 kHz``, back to tropical music. SAM mode shows carrier frequency slightly fluxuating plus 4-6 Hz, S5-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
