Glenn Hauser logs January 27-28-29, 2021

** CANADA. 223-MCW kHz, Jan 29 at 0707 UT, dash and YYW, 1000 watt ND beacon at Armstrong, Ontario. Often like now the first one audible tuning up the band; tho there are plenty more Canadians and Unitedstatesians listed starting at 200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. Correxion to a recent log: 600, VOA via HJHJ started at 0059 UT January 27, not 2359 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11820, Jan 29 at 0325, JBA carrier from presumed 2 x 5910 CRI relay; equivalent to 11850 JBA carrier of RHC itself. If putting out as much signal as before, still not propagating. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Jan 29 at 0615, no signal from VON, not detectable on 9690- nor 11770- either. It`s been quite a while since the *0555 IS and Hausa on 7254.9 has been heard; when active it`s very strong but not always well modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. Correxion to a recent log: 4810 is Radio Logos, not R. Chazuta, which is the location (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWITZERLAND. 18165-USB, Jan 28 at 1545-1555, quick pro-forma contacts with North American pileups; as usual have to listen multiple minutes to catch the callsign correctly, uttered too quickly altho fonetikaly by station and seldom by the pileuppers. Spells his name ROLF and is in NW Switzerland: HB9RDE

With views of his antennas, etc.:

** U S A. 379-MCW kHz, Jan 29 at 0721 UT, ND beacon DL, mixing with weaker RUE, at slightly different pitches and periods. Normally only or dominant here is RUE, 25 watts at RUssellvillE, Arkansas. DL is 50 watts from DuLuth - Pike Lake, Minnesota. RNA Signal list explains: DL LSB/USB = 1028/1020, period 5.9 5 (means 5.95??) named `Pykla` RUE LSB/USB = 1015/1127, period 4.4 seconds These mostly JBA LW/MW logs are always on E-W longwire which I assume provides more gain than the DX-398 internal antenna which however would maybe allow nulling choices for such as these at right angles (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2070 monitoring: confirmed final repeat UT Thursday January 28 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, VG S9/+15 into Bonaire SDR.

WORLD OF RADIO 2071 contents: Albania non, Argentina, Australia and non, Bhutan, Brasil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba and non, Egypt?, Finland, France, Germany, India, Korea South,, Lithuania, North America, Perú, Russia and non, Spain, Sri Lanka, USA; and the propagation outlook

{slight correxion: USA, the AZ log of COVID TIS on 1650 was at ``1100`` which I now realize must have been EST, even tho it`s inapplicable in AZ! I converted to 18 UT as if it had been MST +7, instead of +5 = 16 UT}

First broadcast of WOR 2071 just minutes after completion, confirmed UT Friday January 28 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct; 7780 G S8/S9+10 to UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7571.6, Jan 28 at 0234, WRMI TOMBS on 7570 has unusual QRM from rapid beeping at rate of about 160/minute, i.e. carrier cutting on and off from the upper side as if it were deliberate SE Asian style jamming. Normally blasting 7570 is only S9+10 with noisy modulation of its own as often the case out of Walterboro. 0326 recheck, QRM is off and 7570 has ascended to S9+10/20 but with undermodulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 29 at 0230 and still 0333, dead air from WTWW-1 instead of SFAW, SOB. During the hour signal had dropped from S9+10 to S7-S9; meanwhile, 5085 WTWW-2 continued rockmusicking distortedly at both times. Ted`s stuff is obviously primary, even tho the heirs of Laporte`s passé Pastor Pete Peters own the thing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search January 29 at 1335 since I`m unfortunately awake before sunrise now right at 1335; on the DX-398 so I can rotate DFing: 1566 from NW, no doubt FEBC S Korea, flanked by even weakers 1557 and 1575, but none lower by now, not even 972 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
