Glenn Hauser logs June 18-19, 2021

** CUBA. 6060, June 18 at 0702, RHC is still on air with big humbuzz only, no program audio, S9+20/30. 6165 also open carrier at S9+10/20 and only a trace of same pitch hum. But 60% of The Cuban Five are now off: 6100, 6000, 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9890, Fri June 18 at 2222 check, no signal of R. Yoruba into UTwente SDR. Ivo Ivanov had posted that they had added Friday broadcasts to Sat & Sun, via Woofferton. As usual, he does not give any source, which proved to be wrong. But it`s in the latest HFCC, which also shows the Sat & Sun reduced by one hour to 19-23* UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28298, June 18 at 2014, one sporadic E beacon re-copied, K5TLL/B: ``28.298 K5TLL C HATTIESBURG, MISSISSIPPI # 25W, VERTICAL New Freq 14 Dec 08`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2091 monitoring: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, says, ``Dear Glenn: I was surprised and shock to hear your voice got changed a bit on the recording at 0130, 5850 kHz, on June 18 UTC I heard a different volume set up on your “Voice” recording in was different, higher pitch sound, 73’s, Richard``

``Richard, As I said at outset, because of sore throat. Axually, I think I sounded better, more expression and vocal range than usual, not higher-pitched; but who am I to judge? Glenn``

But I`d rather do without the persistent sore throat; normal temp.

Rodney Johnson: ``Greetings From Minnesota! Hope you're feeling better soon, Glenn. (But if you ever thought of singing some bass harmonies on a motown record, this would be the time to do it!) 73s --Rodney``

Also confirmed Fri June 18 at 2030 on IRRS via Italia-AM 918 kHz Villa Estense, via nearby Noale SDR, VG 29+25. Also audible across Europe at UTwente, but with heavy storm noise over Netherlands, and some CCI probably Spain. Tuned in earlier at 2023, two guys arguing about Drumpf and Kamala, one of them named Kyle, until chopped off at 2029. No idea what partial program that was, as NEXUS-IBA schedule shows only News and World News at 2000 on web +918. BTW, WOR at 2230 CET is attributed to IRRS sub-station IPAR -- International Public Access Radio. Next:

** U S A. (7489.9v), June 19 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`, WTO theme with no! interjexions. This week originating at WHVW 950 Hyde Park NY, with J. P. Ferraro, a three-way lament about the sorry state of domestic broadcasting, and how WBCQ is trying to preserve SW. But first, mandatory fiddling with mikes. By 0027 Allan says it`s 18 June YOOL 2021, on 7490 and 6160 tonight. Says there will be a lot more World`s Last Chance on Classic WBCQ - in addition to 9330; and also of Brother Scare; ``desperately trying to purchase WHRI, taking too long`` due to government delays in approval. WHVW is not online due to royalty charges which would be $3500 per month for a few listeners. Not even checked the SW frequencies here. John Carver`s version:

Tonight's show started on time on 7490. A check two minutes in of 6160 had no program running there yet. Storm noise on both frequencies and het on 6160. Allan and Angela in the studio of WHVW with JP. Must be on their way to Maine. Opening talk about the state and fate of radio in this country. AM, FM and SW were covered. The consensus was that it was a combination of deregulation of radio by the FCC, corporate ownership, computer programming instead of Dee Jays, sameness of sound coast to coast and relaxing of ownership laws were all reasons for the state of radio in this country. While talking about how this affects shortwave, Allan did mention that the sale of WHRI still has not gone through and is being held up by the government and he has no idea why or when it will be resolved. Entire show was about radio this time. Two emails read at the end of the show. Closing prayer at 0059 and off the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11635, re my jazz log, here`s another like it, maybe related: ``13705 + UNID + 1520, Jazz music, one part playing repeatedly like a stuck record. Jazz trio got out of the rut, played on until 1530 when the whole transmission cut off. Who? – Fair June 17 Rick Barton-AZ``

Nothing listed on 13705 anywhen in EiBi and Aoki; HFCC an imaginary hour in English from KBS at 22. So a perfect frequency to try something new (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
