Glenn Hauser logs October 13, 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 13 at 1511, another Wednesday emission tuned in progress from LRA36, fair S4-S6 via Brasil SDR, music; 1518 ``sign-off`` and Antártida song; but 1523 more music follows immediately; 1535 ``sign-on`` with multi-lingual ID including English that this is in Spanish, historical talk; 1537 Antártida song which starts with guitar, then vocal; 1540 bit of hielo song; 1550 a martial song; 1610 Esperanza ID; 1615 hielo song and more music; 1627 `La Radio Pública - Nacional`` ID, more music until chopped off at 1644*. Tuning down in USB, I can tell this time the reduced carrier is also gone. So back on today after missing last Saturday Oct 9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9666.108V, Oct 13 at 600, RVM music at S3-S5; has been steadily drifting upward, now exceeding 1 kHz above nominal, measured here and wobbling slightly. Is the only ZY audible overnight on 31m (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Oct 13 at 1821, S9 but JBM sounds like choking Arabic as scheduled. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Oct 13 at 2200, REE English to N America on Wed: no signal but only have portable with clipon handy; nor the other three frequencies. UTwente check at 2245 when French is on, 11670 VG by far, 15520 and even 17855 also barely audible over full-night path, but no signal on 11940, which must be OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 13 at 2228, no signal direct from VOT English too N America; recheck via UTwente at 2244 before usual closing, no signal either. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees.

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, re the registered antennas for the WBCQ SuperStition: Wolfgang Bueschel explains that #805 is the same type listed for all the other WBCQ ``classic`` frequencies, horizontal log periodic. I say certainly this does not really apply to the 250 kW transmitter on 9330. Possibly a backup lower-power transmitter on 9330 would be such, but not registered. #216, listed for most but not all 9330 transmissions is: Curtain antenna, half-wave dipole array --- and in this case also rotatable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Intense tropo blob up to Level 7 per Hepburn`s maps, across central OK into KS, but Enid as usual on the edge, as of 15 UT Oct 13, so I bandscan at 1513: almost all the `open` UHF DX channels have a Bad signal, but none of them enough to decode into my OKC-directed channel 7+ antenna: RF 12, 14, 20, 21, 22, 26, 31, 34, 35, 36 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
