Glenn Hauser logs June 27-28, 2021

** CUBA. 11850, June 28 at 0352, RHC undermodulation with pulsing dropouts also bumping the carrier around. Exactly same thing on the JBA carrier spur parasites 11840 & 11860. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 9525, June 28 at 0339 ululating song from Dengê Welat. Aoki shows 9525 via FRANCE at 0230-0600 & 1558-2100. But EiBi shows 0230-0530 via France, and 1600-2100 via Moldova. No Turkish jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, June 28 at 0332, anti-Christ pirate, Station YHWH registers S9 but Josiah`s intonation on thin modulation is unreadable vs noise level. Ran across him before getting Rick Barton`s tip that he was very strong into AZ at 0325 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, June 27 at 1824 UT, open carrier, dead air in $tereo, no doubt my semi-local KIMY gospel huxter in Watonga. On the caradio in a futile bandscan for sporadic E which is bouncing around elsewhere. On the DX-398, KIMY signal attempts to energize RDS icon but never an RDS display for definite ID. Still dead at later chex such as 2317 UT. My God! Imagine how many souls have not been saved in the meantime!! (I also have dead air vs stations on 95.1, but think this be algo RF-feeder left on somewhere nearby.)

(BTW, the KIMY translator in Enid on 93.1, K266BR, I last heard May 6, 2013! with noise before it totally crashed, and then noted as of May 28, 2013 that it had been off for a few weeks. It`s still in the WTFDA FM Database but now flagged as silent, so I suppose it`s still licensed after 8! years?! Meanwhile, Enid lax any local translator of any public radio station, tho I have suggested to one or two they should go after this frequency. Meanwhile, it`s semi-open for DX, fringely dominant KHMY Pratt KS, ``My 93.1`` with 100 kW and identifying more as a Hutchinson station.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850 & 7570 & 7730, June 28 at 0325, Dead Brother Hystairical, long ago, then more than ever apropos nickname, audio is cutting out frequently for several seconds making him more incomprehensible than ever via WRMIs; while not doing so on more or less // 5890 WWCR & 7489 WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9880, June 28 at 0336, Farsi talk keeps mentioning Iran, good signal here. Aoki shows BBC via BULGARIA this hour among a 2.5-hour span involving 2 or 3 languages and switching among 4 sites. Is that really necessary or somehow advantageous? No jamming audible.

9880 0200-0230 ARM BBC Pas Yerevan-Gav 1-7
9880 0230-0300 ARM BBC Dar Yerevan-Gav 1-7
9880 0300-0330 OMA BBC Pas Al Seela 1-7
9880 0330-0430 BUL BBC Per Kostinbrod( 1-7
9880 0430-0530 UAE BBC Per Al-Dhabbiya 1-7

BTW, Iran persecutes family of BBC Persian staff: (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2092 monitoring: NOT confirmed Sunday June 27 at 2000 as scheduled on IRRS via AM Italia, 918 kHz, as monitored via nearby Noale SDR: music keeps playing past 2001 and the signal is weaker than usual, only S9+17. I let it run in the background, and think I hear me at 2012, but turned up at 2015 it`s their local YL ID ``Have a good listening``, and more music.

NOT confirmed Sunday June 27 at 2200 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 6159.878v. I don`t get to check until 2227 when the air is dead on an S7-S9 carrier into Maryland SDR; did not get webcast checked before WOR would have ended at 2229. 6160- continues dead air past 2230 into HRI slot, but at 2241 it`s now modulating and also webcasting. (Other WBCQ with `UBMP` is S9 on 7488.861v.)

Confirmed Sunday June 27 at 2240 the 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 atop
Cuban pulse jamming.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 28 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+10/20.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 28 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 28 at 0230 on WRMIs into Maryland SDR: 7780 VG S9/+20; 5800 S8/S9+10, but the latter better out here. Nexts, not until Wednesday:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 5050, June 28 at 0016 on caradio, memory stops on a loud dial tone! Then dead air for at least two minutes 0018+; typical for WWRB on its weekend-only ``schedule`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 750, June 27 at 2233 UT, on caradio a few miles N of Enid on US60/64/81 - northward, eastward and westward at same time all on the same rough stretch of 2-lane highway but being improved? I can get some music, probably gospel in Spanish, vs 740 KRMG splash and storm noise. It`s KMMJ, Grand Island, NE, which resumed recently after months of silence, with new owner and format.

LSS for June and July is 0200 UT, as late as it can be for this strange station, so I`m relistening on the DX-398 from 0152 UT June 28. Definitely loops N/S, fortunately just in the null E/W WSB which is gaining by now. YL is singing a slow song which could be mistaken for sad romantic, but surely of praise; can`t make out much of the lyrix. Chops off the air at 0200* sharp, no ID, no goodbye until tomorrow, certainly no formal sign-off. How rude! Who cares? This dog is being wagged by its FM translator tail which does not sign off.

Here`s a story about the new KMMJ, site good for regional radio news: I see the is up to date except you`d never know it is in Spanish!

FCC classifies KMMJ as 10.5 kW direxional same pattern day and night, and UNLIMITED, but it still has to go off at official local sunset. NRC classifies it L3, as direxional and ``limited time`` annotated as signing-on not at its own sunrise or PSRA, but at *Atlanta* sunrise, which in June and July is 1030 UT. Why bother? Pattern is irregular but a notch toward Atlanta and majorish lobes to north and southwest (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1370, June 27 at 2339 UT on caradio a few miles N of Enid, is enough to audiblize ``1370 KGNO`` Dodge City KS which I can`t get in Enid on groundwave (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
