Glenn Hauser logs October 3, 2021

** CHINA. 12880, Oct 3 at 1452, Chinese S6-S4 with flutter, CNR1 jammer.

12500, Oct 3 at 1454, music S3-S5 with flutter, // 12880, CNR1 jammer. No others found in the WOOB 12-13 or 10-11 areas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Oct 3 at 1854, RHC with S7/9+10 of dead air; by 1909 modulating in English; but supposed to be in Kriyol before 1900. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRELAND. 13264-USB, Oct 3 at 1451, YL VOLMET, JBA S0, i.e. Shannon scheduled here 24h (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. Re my Oct 2 report, Alan Roe replies on WOR iog: ``Hi Glenn, It's also worth mentioning that the RNZI/RNZPac weekly schedules at still also show "9:08PM [to 11:00PM] Sunday Night with Grant Walker" whereas the timings should be 8:08-10: PM, i.e. 0708-0900 UT, and the programme is now "The Sunday Night Retro Show with Phil O'Brien". I suspect that some (at least) of the rest of weekly schedule timings may also be one-hour off. Alan Roe, Teddington, UK`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. 15510, Oct 3 at 1855, modern ME vocal jazzish music, S9/S6, 1859 Arabish announcement with contact info including .com, not finished when chopped off at 1859.5*. EiBi shows this is FEBA Radio Sama via Woofferton, while Aoki calls it IBRA Media/Radio Sama. So which is it? Radio Sama is not in the cross-reference page 524 of WRTH 2021. This transmission on a B-20 frequency appears on page 496 under SWEDEN: IBRA Media with no mention of Sama. Maybe it`s just a program, not a ``station``. FEBA refers to India and Pakistan, not Seychelles! but of course no Arabic or Sama there. BTW, the only ``International`` entry under PAK. The only SW entry in ``National`` sexion is 7265, Azad Kashmit Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 414-MCW kHz, Oct 3 at 0633 UT, ND beacon SU, which is 40 watts from SioUx City, Iowa; the only somewhat unusual one tonight altho not `new` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2106 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday October 3 ending at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+20 direct vs storm noise, so started early circa 0307.

Also confirmed Sunday October 3 at 1255 on NEW 1230 broadcast by WMRI Europe via Channel 292, GERMANY, 9670, S6-S8 into UTwente, atop CCI music. Normally I want to sleep an hour later, but good thing I alarmed myself since no one has replied to my explicit request for monitoring of this! 1259 music comes up, ``Piece of the Axion``, past hourtop, 1302 roboYL ``Dex Carter`` ``playing favorite songs until 1400``. While this music is running, I can`t hear QRMusic which may have stopped; I hope WMRI itself was not underlaying WOR with music. It so happens that the time for us coincides with that Vietnamese clandestine transmitted from Taiwan at 1230-1300 on 9670; EiBi says there is noise jamming too but I don`t hear that. WMRI`s entire experimental broadcast runs 1200-1600 Sundays; and Channel 292 schedule shows it`s direxional on two letters toward North America; they now display this with a proper great circle map. But it was not audible into Maine SDR on this day path, let alone to OK. Channel 292 transmits from Rohrbach in SE Germany, Bavaria near Ingolstadt, east of Stuttgart, between Nürnberg and München; only 520 km = 323 statute miles from UTwente SDR at Entschede, Netherlands; but evidently not inside the skip zone.

** U S A [and non]. 9330, Oct 3 at 1458 past 1500, no signal from WLCR via WBCQ. Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, also reports:

``World's Last Chance Radio relays via SPL and ENC-DMS off air. But on October 3 also no signal of World's Last Chance Radio via WBCQ-6
-- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

Alan Holder, Isle of Wight, also reports Oct 3:
``Since October 1, I cannot locate WLC radio via the Woofferton relays: 17700 English 1700-1900, 9800 Arabic 1800-2100. I also checked 13840 Arabic this morning October 3 at 0930 (and 15780, 17520 alternatives) via Kostinbrod, but nothing heard. The WLC Web site still lists these broadcasts. Has Galal Doss fallen behind on his payments or have the relays been cancelled? Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.``

9330, however, Oct 3 at 1846, S9/+10 of dead air back on past 1925 with no modulation, off at 1930* and *1931 back on; surely this instead of Cuban spy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, Sun Oct 3 at 1849, rock music at S9, but weakened in daytime absorption just after local mean noon here, WTWW-2; checked since first hearing S9+10 of PPPP on 9475 WTWW-1. 2 is often on without 1 on this or 5830 at night, but not 1 without 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4095.00-USB, Oct 3 at 0625, surprised to hear OM voice instead of CW, alternating with upward whoops; JBA in high storm noise level, but is giving temps in degrees; 0626 ID maybe? and ``out``; and later 0630 mentions UTC? There seem to be lots of beacons around this kHz. The ``Desert Whooper`` itself has been higher about 4095.6. I`ve asked the team there if that`s it, or what. A quick look at HF Underground does not find anything about voice on this exact frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12747-USB, Oct 3 at 1453, 2-way talk seems Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Some BAD TV signals Oct 3 at 1509 UT when there is some tropo in OK & KS: RF 8, 12, 14, 31. Likely Wichita market except 14 could be KOCW Hoisington KS, if not KOCY OKC which I have yet to confirm. Rooftop antenna remains fix-aimed toward OKC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
