Glenn Hauser logs June 29, 2021

** CHINA [and non]. Re my log of something 13920+ after CNR1 jammer off 1400* June 28, could it be Sound of Hope? Inconclusive, but Wolfgang Bueschel replies, ``TAIWAN 13919.991 kHz a tiny poor signal noted at 1352 UT June 29 remotedly on Tokyo SDR unit.`` And previously on March 7, 2012: ``13920.004 SOH Xi Wang Zhi Shen. Miaoli, Mandarin. S=5, 0756 UT. 73 wb df5sx``.

My CNR1 jammer logs June 29 at 1421: 13530 JBA vs CODAR; 13130 weaker Chinese; 12880 even weaker S5-S8; 12820 & 12500 JBA carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC, and here is something stranger than ever. June 29 at 1424 I start tuning for spurs on the 13 MHz band, first finding 13580 with extremely distorted music blob with reconfirmed F# tone, that`s 120 kHz down from 13700 so next one should be around 13640: yes, but as soon as I get there it vanishes while 13700 has been replaced by fax?? sounds at S9+10. Beepery goes on and on and seems deliberate rather than random, some brief pauses. Reminds me some of fax and some of SSTV. I cannot decode either. Briefly at 1430 there is a mixture of this and undermodulated music at S9+10/20. One zero-beat is at 13703. At 1432 I check for more on the plus side: 13762 has F# blob, also weakers around 13825, 13886, 13948, trace 14013; and JBA trace circa 14075 where it collides with that hamband beepery, whatever it be. Back to the fundamental, which is now centered on 13705 with the SSTV/fax beepery; spurs now circa 13579, 13518 trace. 13705 continues past 1458. At 1459 I measure JBM carriers with F# tones on 13761.73 and 13638.29. At 1502, 13700 is off, but now 13705 is playing RHC music, no beepery, 1503 dead air and 1504* off! I wonder if the RHC broadcast sites, besides being shared with jammers, spies, also be shared with utility services (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, it`s another Tuesday already June 29, so I remember just in time at 1525 to check UTwente for what`s on this week from IRRS: last week from 1500 it was ` Sounds Irish` music, and before that it was Kashmir Civitas clandestine. It`s back to the latter, S9+20/30, talk in presumed Urdu mentioning Kashmir with strumming musical background. 1527.5 ``salaam aleikum`` greeting in closing; 1528 a bit of other music and cut off air early? at 1528:15*, soon back on for a split second before gone for good.

Others had been hearing this earlier: Arthur Pozner near NYC, Harold Sellers in BC, and Paul Walker in AK.

Pozner says: ``Confirmed about the actual language. It is the same "Kashmir" program in Urdu and was received in several countries with various results. And a station ID came on in Russian: "This is Inter-Radio Romania"!``

Sellers says: ``fair-good in southern British Columbia at 1519 with presumed Kashmiri. Man with stringed instrument music in background into an on location report of some kind. Missed sign off which was before 1528. Was good at 1523`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Quick check of nearby 25-watt ND beacon status, June 29 at 2255 UT: 255 SW Stillwater still off; 342 EI Enid and 515 PN Ponca City still ON (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
