Glenn Hauser logs October 29, 2021

** CANADA. 258-MCW kHz, Oct 29 at 0705 UT, ND beacon dash and ZSJ, 1000 watts from Sandy Lake, Ontario. A ``clear channel`` with nothing else per (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6100, Oct 29 at 0629, RHC dead air, but 0630 Spanish instead of English; English OK only on 6165, while 6060 is JBM below hum; 6000 long gone; and 5040 a JBA carrier, presumably VANUATU. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Oct 29 at 1412, S9/+10 of dead air from RHC; but no spurs; pales compared to neighbor 13690 Armenia with TWR India. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN. 747 kHz, Oct 29 at 1228, trace of Japanesish talk modulation, the best of the TP carrier search just completed so sat on this a while, very likely 500 kW JOIB, NHK-2 Sapporo (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 2349.254, Oct 29 at 1238, VP carrier. Likely KCBS as per previous Wolfgang Bueschel report:

``KOREA DEM PEOPLES REPUBLIC [sic] KCBS 2350 kHz (Sariwon site). Reactivation of the Sariwon transmitter in North Korea on 2350 kHz (2349.39 kHz).

Received today with a weak signal \\ 3250 kHz (Pyongyang site), 1310 UT on Aug 31. (Kiwi SDR - Oita-JPN, via Franck Baste F4LKC, WOR Aug 31)

2349.394 kHz terrible like a metal watering can audio signal, at 1303 UT Oct 1st, S=9+10dB signal in Hiroshima-JPN remotedly. And \\ 3250.001 kHz exact measured KCBS Pyongyang S=9+20dB signal`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 3200-3205-3210, Oct 29 at 1233, DRM noise, no doubt KCBS P`yongyang, scheduled 22 hours per day (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2110 contents: (Argentina non), Australia, Botswana, Canada and non, Chile, China, Cuba, Eritrea non, Ethiopia and non, Finland, *France and non, Indonesia, *Iran and non, (Japan), Jordan, *Kashmir non, Korea North & South, *Kuwait, Myanmar and *non, Netherlands, *New Zealand, North America, Pakistan *non, Romania, *Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, (Taiwan), *Turkey, (UAE), USA, (Uzbekistan), unID 15190; propagation outlook --- () country mentioned but not in that order; *includes new B-21 schedule

[NOTE: I slip and call this #2010 === NO, IT IS 2110! Too late to fix
on air now. Also had a lot of recording problems with this one]

WOR 2110 confirmed first SWBCs, UT Fri Oct 29 at 0130 on WRMIs 5850, VG direct; and 7780, S9/+15 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Fri Oct 29 at 0330 on WRMI 5985, S9/+20 into St. Lucia SDR.

Also confirmed Fri Oct 29 from 1815 on IRRS via AM Italia, 918 kHz, S9+10 via nearby Noale SDR; preceding program was just ending when but to IRRS ID and WOR. Meanwhile, as usual, 7290 carrier is on by 1811, S9+5 into UTwente, but modulation does not cut on until almost 1816 as the WOR opening is almost over, JIP. I`ve asked IRRS to move this up by at least one minute (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Oct 29 at 1414, S8/S9 of dead air from WRMI-9, not to be outdone by RHC; but 1415 alive with accented discussion about abortion? with some other language mixed, Vietnamese? Of course, it`s Supreme Master TV, as scheduled here 1400-2000. While its do-gooder, pro-environment stance is laudable, that`s outweighed by cultish devotion to the Supreme Master; she needs to be a bit more modest, such as calling herself ``King of the Earth``. Unpredictable language mixture also a put-off for the non-multilingual; lack of visible captioning translations, if any on the original; as well as lengthy listings of cable TV channels it`s on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, Oct 29 at 0625, JBA music; must be KVOH, nominally 0100-0600 in English except UT Mondays. recently updated Oct 15: But in Aoki dated Oct 25 already shown as 0200-0700! We did expect a +1 hour UT shift after the end of DST from November 9; but has been flexibly running beyond nominal 0600* anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 414-MCW kHz, Oct 29 at 0645 UT, ND beacon SU, 40 watts from SioUx City, Iowa.

410-MCW, Oct 29 at 0646 UT, NDB BA, 25 watts from Columbus, Indiana. Also audible tuned to 408-USB.

392-MCW, Oct 29 at 0647 UT, NDB FMU, I logged with certainty, but nonesuch listed by Hepburn or classaxe on any frequency. On 392 there is an FMZ, 25 watts at Beklof / Fairmont, Nebraska. Maybe they sent a U ..- instead of a Z --.. ? Not a likely confusion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Oct 29 at 1254 UT, S9+20 dead air atop a weakie, presumably remnant of KWKH; this being KLEY, Wellington KS, back to its old trix after a period of modulated activity after almost a year off air completely, but back on in August to preserve license. Still dead air in fuller daytime at 1409 UT. Official FCC sunrise for October is 1230 UT; November, 1315 UT; but also heard at night with 250 watt day power rather than one watt night. BTW, FCC AM Query has been extremely slow-loading; took about a minute (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 29 at 0636-0643 UT: 531, 558, 585(2), 639(2), 684, *693(2), 711, 747, 756, 774(2), 819, 837, 846-TP?, 855, 909, 972, 999, 1017(2), 1044(2), 1053, 1098, 1107(2), 1125(2), 1152, *1215, 1305(2), 1413, 1458 kHz. (2) at least two carriers beating; *strongest, likely UK. Holding up later now from W Europe, with latening sunrises, many others surely Spain or UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 29 at 1218-1223 UT, on the E-W longwire so no DF distinguishing between E Asia and Down Under, but most likely the Up Overs: 558, 567, *594, 693, 702(2), 747-[see JAPAN], 774, 828, 846, 873, 972, 1017, 1098, 1107(2), 1116, 1206- kHz. The top one would be the off-frequency Chinese. Some the superpower NHK Japanese such as *594 strongest, but 594 also has superpowers in China, Myanmar, India. My first TP search of the season, when I try to be asleep, but awakened at 1125 so gave up and turned on before sunrise 1252 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2070 kHz, Oct 29 at 1236 UT, JBA carrier. I tuned the entire 3200-2000 kHz band alert for carriers which could be MW harmonix, but this the only one, which would be 3 x 690 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
