Glenn Hauser logs September 25, 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 25 at 1504, NO signal from LRA36 into Brazilian SDRs this Saturday; I let one run anyway until 1600, nothing but S4 of noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, Sept 25 at 0156, RHC English S9 at 2 x 6000 where it is S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157, 7215, 7335, 9565, 11860, 11930, 6030, Sept 25 at 0614, DentroCuban Jamming Command, where something is always wrong, still grinding on its two favorite 40m hamband channels as for weeks now; and R. Martí frequencies which are never on the air overnight; 7335 is especially strong, but no other 7s. Just think what the cost of all this electrical waste could provide the suffering Cuban people in sufficient nutrition, medical care, etc.! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 5025, Sept 25 at 0619, R. Rebelde is off! No Perú to be heard now, but less QRM to 5020 JBA carrier presumed Solomonic. However, 5040 RHC is still on in Spanish, S9+20/30 splashing unimpeded as far down as 5025. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN [non]. 9370, Sept 25 at 0602, JBA S2-S3 talk in unknown language where normally I hear nothing. Aoki shows it`s R. Farda via Lampertheim, GERMANY at 0300-0630. At 0630-1100 site switches to Kuwait; 1100-1230 back to Lam. In fact nothing but USAGM outlets on 9370; later and earlier, RFA and VOA via Tajikistan, Kuwait, Philippines. 31m is hopping from Europe at 0600+; much stronger 9420 Greece, 9670 Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, Sept 25 at 0613, NO signal from VON in Hausa. I tire of tracking it every night, but I would say at least half the time it`s missing; you never know whether it will be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2105 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday September 25 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20 into Maryland SDR.

** U S A. 9950 & 9960, Sept 25 at 0606, TOMBS modulation is JBA on plus and minus 5 kHz spurs out of 9955 WRMI, unusually strong in the nightmiddle S9+30. First time I have detected such, but like the 4975 spur out of 4980, reconfirmed at 0623. Perhaps they are far enough `down` to be negligible if WRMI even be aware of them. When 9955 is so strong, I suspect it`s really on a more northerly antenna than the nominal 160 degrees attributed 24/7 to XMTR 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5059 & 5111 approx., Sept 25 at 0620, traces of spur carriers which work out as 2nd-orders out of 5085 WTWW-2. I.e. twice the ~13 kHz offsets of the first-order ones circa 5072 & 5098. Just as I tune in, music stops but dead carrier stays on. Amazingly, no one else seems ever to report the painfully obvious closer ones, let alone their doubles. Something`s always weird at WTWW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, Sept 25 at 0624, WWCR in dead air yet again at S9+60! instead of dead Stair, who continues haunting us on 3215, 5890, as well as dead Scott on 5935. A trifecta anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
