Glenn Hauser logs September 27-28, 2021

** CANADA. 6754-USB, Sept 28 at 0032, Trenton Military is AWOL again, nor was it heard in earlier Sept 27 daytime chex on 15034-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11880, Sept 28 at 0039, RHC is still on here, S9+20 with its own version of French, which is supposed to be on 5040 but that`s now in Spanish. 11880 is supposed to quit at 2400 after an hour of English to ``Africa``, BTW often AWOL. This time the sloppyrator is really asleep at the dial. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Oh oh, if this keep on past 0100, there will be a big collision with Greenville relay of KBS World Radio in Spanish, which has been on 11880 all A-season. At 0059 RHC suddenly switches to English as ``Ed Newman`` is introducing the next hour.

11880, KBS relay comes on about a minute late at 0101, and now they are mixing about equally with RHC as received direct. I keep checking every few minutes and RHC is not about to get off! At 0113 during English from RHC and music from KBS, they add up to S9+20/30; still 0126+.

At 0144 I try Bonaire SDR where it also seems that the two are within 1 Hz of zero-beat, fine going! English is on regular 6000 and 6165 and harmonic 12000; but 5040 is in S9+10/30 of dead air. At 0150 KBS is dominating to Bonaire with RHC weakening; but the KB0FX SDR in Missouri has RHC dominant. KBS relay goes to ``Babcock`` music at 0200-0201* so it looks like Grimesland`s timer is a minute slow.

RHC English keeps on and on 11880 after KBS is finished: 0219 is S5-S7 into MO; still 0258, 0329 tho weakening, 0400 no longer audible and probably finally off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Sept 28 at 0040, aside all the excitement on 11880, RHC Spanish is on here, JBM, suptorted, wiggle that patchcord! but S9+20 signal, still plenty to audiblize the parasitic spurcarriers in the clear on 11840, and QRMing the jamming against nothing on 11860, which is even stronger on 11930. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. 12264.90V-AM, wavering between 12264.89 and .935 per UTwente SDR readout in Synch mode, Sept 27 at 1741, JBA signal S7 with talk, music; but nothing into Maryland remote:
``Dick Spacewalker`` had publicized yesterday [sic]: ``Hi, after 2,5 months of silance Spaceshuttle will have transmission day on Monday 27th of September. Day includes short tests of propagation as well combined 19th Birthday of us. Only frequency in use will be 12265 kHz... So we have very low power in use. But surprises might happen. Wishing you luck with listenening``

He had been on earlier around 0800; after my tip several other WOR iog members were hearing this intermittently past 2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [non]. 5800, UT Tue Sept 28 at 0300, WRMI with special `México le canta a las Américas`, but also talking interviews, all in Spanish, greeting from Jeff Blanco at midpoint. VG into Bonaire SDR, not so good direct. Too much else going on this hour, e.g. `Klezocalypse Now` on KSFR, so I record for later listening with less divided attention. First Perú, now this: I hope we`ll be hearing more LAm countries celebrated. Per WRMI skedgrid, this pre-empts Freedom Synergy Radio, the dispensable Falungong anti-PRC show most nights during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. RNZP is not adhering to its own revised transmission schedule. Sept 27 at 2015 check, nothing on reactivated? 15720, or 13840. 15720 supposedly runs from 2159 to 0258, preceded and followed by 13840. Next check at 0235 Sept 28: it`s S5-S7 on 13840 into Missouri SDR, NOT on 15720 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Sept 27 at 2200, REE token English this Monday is *still* distorted on this S6-S9 frequency; is anyone paying attention? Something`s always nonsensical at Nobleejas. Fortunately, // 17855 to NAm is still holding up well, S9/+20 and with good modulation. 15520 good at S3-S7; 11670 S3-S7 but with ute ACI, all direct to OK. News first with Amy Egan: Canary volcano; illegal drunken parties on the beaches of Barcelona; international tourism day; a copy of the Mona Lisa at the Prado. 2211 feature admittedly from the archive: about a UK blues/rock guitarist at Café Comercial in Madrid. He`s semi-Spanish and has lived there for a dekayear. Name mentioned once sounded like B. B. King, but I don`t think that`s right; no podcast yet to check, the latest being 21/9 since Sept resumption after break from July with no Augusts at: (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 27 at 2200 and later, no signal from VOT English to N America, SOB. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Sept 27 at 2019, WBCQ is VP with YL in German? WLCR back on air, tho missing this morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), Mon Sept 27 from 2300, WBCQ webcast, attempting to listen to the semi-repeat of `UBMP`, but it`s still too distorted, overmodulated; and subject this week, Mexican rock is unappealing. Ehhh, listen next week, as UB would say. I do notice at 2330 another of those national spot commercials which precede `Camp Constitution Radio`, this time for Tim Horton`s Coffee app. What a catch (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
