Glenn Hauser logs January 7-8-9, 2021

** CANADA. Re my log of 750 CKJH, Melfort, Saskatchewan, Murray Lycan, VA1CQ, Halifax, replies: ``As a former Saskatchewan resident long ago, I'll have you know CKJH studios (Beach Radio) are located only 1 km from Windsor Slough at the Melfort Golf & Country Club. I suppose this could qualify as a beach area if you squint your eyes`` (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 2068)

** MALI. 5995, Jan 8 at 0709, S9+10/20 from ORTM in French with African flutish music, very nice, good modulation too; and by now no ACI from Cuba or Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 960, Jan 7 at 0716 UT check, KGWA Enid again in dead air with algo underneath. Also Jan 8 at 0654 DA; with nulling, dominant signal is a non-sports talker; KGWA blasts back on at 0659 for Rush ad and ID, 0700 Faux ``news`` starts. Wish I had time and ear protexion to monitor for DX during nightly protracted open carriers KGWA so kindly provides. Note: on WOR 2068 I mis-call the understation heard before from San Angelo TX as KSKL instead of correct KGKL (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2067 monitoring: confirmed UT Thursday January 7 at new time of 0130 ex-0100, on WRMI 5010 only, fair via DomRep KiwiSDR. Expected 7780 instead with music before and after 0130; at 0155 beepery and no voice announcement before 0159 WRMI ID; typical behavior of `TIAMS`, now running from 0100.

BUT, first airing UT Friday January 8 at 0130 confirmed on 5850, VG direct and S9+30/35 via MO SDR, and 7780, S9/+10 via UTwente, not 5010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7490.18v), UT Sat Jan 9 at 0100, WBCQ webcast with `AAAWWW` --- starts right off with paranoid assertions that ``conservative`` media are being ``purged`` from the web; can WBCQ be next in a ``to-do list`` by evil forces of Biden supporters, behind which is China to turn the US into communist servitude? Hal Turner fears he won`t be able to feed his show to BCQ, needs backup method. Topic A, I really don`t want to hear any more as they are buying into blaming the Left for storming the Capitol, etc., etc.

0137 recheck, a break to ``lighten up``?? Gives tonight`s frequencies as 7490 & 6160; but more of the same in the name of Free Speech. 0153 implies that those who disagree are stupid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, January 8 at 0703-0707 UT: 603, 621, 639, 684*, 729, 747(2), 774(2), 837, 882(2), 891*, 909, 999, 1044, 1107, 1125, 1215 kHz. *=strongest; (2) at least two carriers beating. Notable for its absence is 846, which used to appear even earlier after TP sunset at Kiritimati; is it off the air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


>From Murray Lycan, VA1CQ: ``Hi Glenn, you're as constant as time itself. It's been years (decades?) since I've looked you up online and I'm glad to see you're not only still alive but you're amazingly still reporting on radio. How comforting! Enjoying your most recent report now. Since I'm a new retiree, I now have endless time to spend at my radios`` (WORLD OF RADIO 2068)
