Glenn Hauser logs June 22-23, 2021

** CHINA. Cursory CNR1 jammer survey in 12-13 MHz area only, June 22 at 1345: 13530 JBA, 13020 Chinese S7, 12500 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, June 22 at 0615, the only RHC frequency still on of The Cuban Five --- and it`s the one with a big humbuzz over the English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5955, June 22 at 0616, pulse jamming against nothing -- nothing for years since R. República, Costa Rica disappeared from 5954+v. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRELAND [non]. 15170, June 22 at 1508, S9+10 into UTwente, not Kashmir Civitas program but ``Irish songs`` only as DJ says. It is after all, the Irish Radio Relay Service - never mind Italy, or Kashmir. Last Tuesday may have been another one-shot for them. Tnx to reminders from Arthur Pozner and Paul Walker. Probably via Romania. 1510 DJ again and ``Silver Threads Among the Gold``; 1522 says he likes going to nursing homes for sing-alongs. 1526 `Sounds Irish` is name of show, but whence? ``In Dublin, Fair City``, until dead air for a few seconds and off 1529*.

Quick search finds `Sounds Irish` names more than one show: on Radio Sligo, Minnesota Public Radio;, etc. This one on FB? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, June 22 at 0613, VON AWOL as has been last few nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. At 2325 UT June 22, Lúcio Otávio Bobrowiec, Brasil posted to the WOR iog: ``Hi all, On 6174 kHz Radio Tawantinsuyo of Peru back after months. Female talks. 73 Lucio Brasil``

Lúcio, Tnx for tip! That`s 1 kW OAX7C. No way I could get it direct with my high line noise level. A call is in to OG&E to work on that. But up to S8 via some S American remotes, and yes, off-off frequency about 6173.91v. Some great Andean music, Spanish announcements maybe from a live fiesta. Hearing it from 0030. O, I think it just went off at 0053.

Then I find a webcast which worx for their 1190 MW outlet: sounds like the same, extremely frenetic Andean music and yelling; 0101 ID; and then claims it is miércoles 2 de junio, buenos días, and soon TC for 11:06 de la mañana, more frequent TCs in the 11 am hour, so a non-live webcast-only program; timer countdown indicates it`s 57+ minutes long. Site says it was live about 3 weeks ago. I let it play. Plugs contacts with some FM stations elsewhere. Never mentions SW frequency, or 1190 for that matter. Player has still video of the musical group in native garb, and slowly scrolling label abottom, ``La Hora de Qataymasis`` -- ``La Expresión Andina`` -- ``con Sandro Huallpa A.`` Qatays are brothers-in-law: if you have one, call him that. Sandro mixes in some Quechua here and there. Audio file concludes with national anthem by conventional brass band.

I did not close it out, and found it went on to play some other audiovideos, such as ``Todas las Sangres`` for a couple hours, with more interesting series of video stills. Comments indicate it`s more recent, for Dia del padre (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 12045, June 22 at 1428, VOA Korean talk // much stronger 12080, on two receivers, but far from synchronized. Finally when there is a change of voices, I calculate that 12080 SAIPAN NMI is running about 10 seconds behind 12045 THAILAND (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2091 monitoring; next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
