Glenn Hauser logs September 22, 2021

** ANTARCTICA [non]. Any RNASG? Did not get around to checking for LRA36 this Wednesday Sept 22 until 1608 UT: NO signal on 15475.98-RCUSB into Brasil SDR. Has it come and gone already; did anyone hear it or try to earlier? Yes: Sam Sánchez, Oregon replies on WOR iog:

``Subject: Re: [WOR] Antarctica today? --- I caught them today via Brazil SDR around 1550 UTC, off at the top of the hour-ish. Nothing via Iceland. Sorry for the inexact times - I was multi-tasking. ;-)``

Then I tuned down to 15475.00-USB to detect a reduced carrier if any, none, but at 1609 Sept 22 there is very brief 2-way in Spanish INTRUDING on that exact frequency. Will leave it there for a while. Another longer contact at 1617, but colloquial and can`t understand. Probably these nothing to do with Antarctica (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9665.968V, Sept 22 at 2354, gospel huxter in Brazuguese, S5-S8; RVM is getting closer & closer to a full kHz off nominal. Frequency wobbling slightly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Sept 22 at 2358, dense rock music at S8-S9; 2405 YL ID as Mix Radio, International. 6940-6945 area is normally avoided due to ute bonker circa 6942 but none of that now. More reports here including from MRI herself:,86702.0.html

``Thanks for tuning in to MRI. Just doing a test after restoring my windows backup partition out to the stream TX remote location. I am still working on the QSL’s from the classical show. Doing a little over 8k audio. « Last Edit: September 22, 2021, 2359 UTC by M R I »`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Wed Sept 22 at 2200, same via Maryland and UTwente SDRs, this is the only useful frequency for token English, but it`s distorted like on Monday, not Tuesday. It`s more tolerable in AM mode than in SSB. 11670 is JBA and no better into Kuwait or S Africa; while 17855 and 15520 are inaudible at all locations, likely off the air rather than MUFed out. First news about the La Palma volcano; 2208 feature interview with a woman from Colombia who studied film scoring in Boston and now is in Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 22 at 2210, VOT English already with 2-minute filler of multilingual IDs, 2222 `Feeling Supreme` seems to be program name; then a commentary another announcer is having trouble reading in English. But signal is super into UTwente: S9+55! by the time it gets into Maryland, only S9/+10 but still plenty, no QRM audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2104 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, From the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees. Dear Glenn: Last week’s tasks now I heard this week’s World of Radio #2104, they will be posted below the details, 0330, 5985 kHz, I was not sure what was heard and music played at 0345 UTC, I anyone confirm this? [that is UT Friday; yes, there was a bit of music, Greece interval signal at the middle of WOR 2104 --- gh]

0130-0159, static, 0159, 5850 kHz, Sept 17 UTC 2021 [Fri]
0130-0159, static QRN, other QRN, 9395 kHz, QSB fading very shaky, 9395 kHz, s9 signal, 0159, 9395 kHz, Sept 18 UTC 2021 [Sat] 2230-2259, QSB fading, static QRN, 9955 kHz, s7 signal, 2259, 9955 kHz, Sep 19 UTC 2021 [Sun]
0030-0059, Static noise, 7730 kHz, 0044, 0053 s8, s9 signal, 0059, 7730 kHz, Sep 19 UTC 2021 [Sun]
0030-0059, QRN, 9395 kHz, 0044 (half way mark), 7730 kHz, 0058 s 9 signal (45343), 0059, 7730 kHz, Sep 20 UTC 2021 [Mon]
5850 kHz, 1030, 1031 (45443), lousy reception, 1059, 5850 kHz, Sep 22 UTC 2021 [Wed] (Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Confirmed here, Wed Sept 22 at 1045 the 1030 on WRMI 5850, VG direct as I happen to awaken -- and I belatedly notice that in the mid-break, I mess up my own address, PO Box number as ``6184`` instead of 1684!! Am I becoming lysdexic? Am I losing it? This bodes ill for continuing to broadcast a program full of numbers. I hope no one really try to reach me at that misbox! But no one else has noticed?

Also confirmed Wed Sept 22 direct at 2100 on WRMI 7780, JBA VP S5-S7; 21 seconds later on WBCQ 7489.9v, also S5-S7 but by 2128 the latter has improved to S8/S9+5. Next, and last:

0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW [news]
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
