Glenn Hauser logs October 17-18, 2021

** ARMENIA. 13690, Oct 18 at 1402, one of better signals on band at S4-S6 with flutter, music must be S Asian as this is TWR India in extremely convoluted language schedule by quarter-hour 1330-1500 and day-of-week, per Aoki and EiBi on Monday 1400-1415 as Vasavi, abbr`d VV or [vas], spoken by a megaperson in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Gone at 1447 recheck, tho supposedly in English at 1430-1500 M-F (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, Oct 18 at 0559, RHC English with horrible humbuzz now rapidly intermittent to boot, and splattering plus/minus 10 at least. Others: 6100 S9+20/30 but overmodulatedistorted; 6165 best at S9+30; 6000 still on at 0601, S9+20 with hum; 5040 now in Spanish at S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, Oct 18 at 0558, RNZI achieves S9+20/30 here, better than before and now sufficient as replacement for 11725; let`s hope it continue at this level into NAm (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11880, Oct 18 until 1457*, RRI IS good and off; at end of German hour via a funxional Tsiganeshti AM transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 347-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0618 UT, ND beacon AFK, which is 25 watts from Nebraska City NE, only one logged before I offdoze (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2108 monitoring: Alfredo Cotrone explains why WOR was missing from IRRS 7290 & 918 Friday October 15 at 1815: On third Fridays it`s Radio City instead. None of this is shown on:

Confirmed Sunday October 17 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+22 and 9955, S9+30/35, both into Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 18 at 0030 on WRMIs: 7730 VG direct; 9395 S9+25 and 9455 much weaker S9/S7 into Knoxville.

Also confirmed after 0130 UT Mon Oct 18 on WRN N American webcast.

Also confirmed from 0302.7 UT Mon Oct 18 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 53 Hz = 6159.947, S9+10 into Maryland SDR, and much stronger there than adjacent 6165 RHC. JL ran slightly over, and then Larry stuck in an ancient clip of me reciting lyrix to a Slinky song; maybe for an SWL Fest presentation? And then WOR. Next, not until Wednesday:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 7490v, Sunday October 17 at 2230, despite simulWOR on two WRMIs, I`m listening to second half of `UBMP` on WBCQ -- as usual the webcast is too distorted, so I`m on a Maryland SDR at S9+15/20 for better sound. Now it`s a female singer from Togo. I plan to catch the first half on secret repeat Monday at 2300 on same.

I can`t help but notice that in Synch mode, this SDR shows WBCQ almost on-frequency! 7490 minus only 0.5 to 1.5 Hz. For weeks it had usually been around 100 Hz minus. I check further an hour+ later at 2337 but it`s drifted up +17.5; at 2359, +49; at 0009 Oct 18, +52; at 0028, +56 Hz. By 0215 has faded to JBA but +58 Hz. I wonder if this slow drift upwards be typical over a few hours of upwarming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 18 at 1453, S7 gospel huxter as WJHR is rarely audible, and/or rarely on? Glorified ham station (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my 1580, KFCS log, Wayne Heinen replies:

``Glenn writes: “But in Colorado Springs itself on 94.7 there is K234AJ, 84-watt Christian in English relay of KTLF 90.5. With a separate but probably previous entry for the same except call as K290AK which would not be 94.7 at all.”

FCC has K290AK at 105.9 in Colorado Springs….

All the Tigre stations are owned by GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION except for K276GG. MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY TRANSLATORS, LLC. which appears to be a leased operation. Colorado Springs and Pueblo are geographically separated by Cheyenne Mountain so the 94.7 xlator can easily coexist with Tigre 94.7

Glenn writes: “Where is Beulah? Remote tiny town SW of Pueblo. Strangely, nothing about KRYE 94.7 here:” {in Wikipedia}

Like many of the other “City of License” locations that the FCC accepts in suburbs and surrounding grazing lands. It’s a way to shoehorn in a radio station…

The Tigre brand is GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION whose Tigre is out of Greeley at KGRE AM & FM and translator K271BN Estes Park are wholly owned. 73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)
