Glenn Hauser logs October 5-6, 2021

** CANADA. Oct 5 at 0621+ UT, finally few storms in CONUS so noise level low enough to reuncover some ND beacons not heard for months:

335-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0623 UT, dash and YLD, 1000 watts from Chapleau, Ontario.

284-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0627 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from The Pas MB.

269-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0628 UT, dash and UDE, 50 watts from Delta MB.

250-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0635 UT, dash and FO, 1600 watts from Flin FlOn MB.

223-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0639 UT, dash and YYW. This is missing from, not on any frequency, probably ``decommissioned``. I have heard it before, many times last winter, finally on Feb 5: it`s 1000 watts from Armstrong in remote NW Ontario. But RNA Signals List shows it still logged as recently at 2021-10-02, but never in OK, and power of only 100 watts.

212-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0640, dash and YGX, 50 watts from Gillam MB. Last logged Dec 14 with some info about Gillam. More this session at USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 5 at 0135, RHC Spanish modulation is suppressed/distorted = suptorted to the level of JBM = just barely modulated, S9+20/30 going to waste. SAWA = Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 5 at 2315, RHC Spanish is S9+10/20 with humbuzz like often infesting 6060 later, probably same transmitter. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13650, Oct 5 at 2320, CRI music only instead of Portuguese relay is S9+10 but overmodulated & distorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Oct 5 at 0621+ UT, finally few storms in CONUS so noise level low enough to reuncover some ND beacons not heard for months:

356-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0621 UT, ODX, 25 watts from Ord, Nebraska

341-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0623 UT, OIN, 25 watts from Oberlin KS: yes, Enid local EI is still silent.

257-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0630 UT, JYR, 25 watts from York, NE

257-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0632 UT, FWC, 25 watts from Fairfield/Wayne County, Illinois. I was tuned to 255-USB, where SW Stillwater OK is still silent.

251-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0634 UT, AM, 100 watts from Amarillo TX. More from same session: CANADA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 5 at 1456 & 2313 chex, still no signal from WLCR/WBCQ. Has Allan explained anything about this by disgraced twit? Of course not; almost all of them are pro-motional, lastly for AAAWWW on Oct 1. How about the WLC website? Of course not! The latest ``news`` there is dated 2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1310 kHz, Oct 6 at 0052 UT, Spanish YL praying openly and fervently, as if God couldn`t read her mind, loops W/E; by ToH faded into jumble, something else IDing in English. There are several SS mostly E and W coast, but the nearby obvious SS:REL hit is KZIP Amarillo TX, 1000/88 watts non-direxional, Radio Vida, per new NRC AM Log [which I highly recommend; see for ordering info]. Official FCC sunset for KZIP in October was 0015 UT, so I had it with 88 watts? November: 2345 UT. As so often, info is outdated as ``Radio Caliente``. FCC shows licensee is Christian Ministries of the Valley, Inc. What valley? Not AMA. Coverage map at r-l shows site is slightly due west of Amarillo; probably visible along I-40 near Cadillac Ranch (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 5 at 0150-0157 UT: 531, 558(2), 576, 585(2), 612, 621, 639, 657, 684(2), *693, 738, 765, 774(2), 837(2), 882(2), 909, 963, 981, 999, 1053, *1089, 1098(2), 1107, 1116, 1125(3), 1134, 1152, *1215, 1278, 1296, 1413, 1512, 1575 kHz. *strongest probably UK; (2) at least two carriers beating at widely varying rates; (3) more than two (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13815, Oct 5 at 2321, surprised to find a VG S9 signal direct to here with ME music, Arabic W&M chat, brief Qur`an, chanting for several minutes could be secular; 2333 ``Idha`at ---`` which would be an ID but could not copy it. Starting to fade down. Recheck Oct 6 at 0022, no signal to remotes in Europe, E N America, N S America. Only 13815 entry in EiBi, Aoki and HFCC is 1800-1900, Algeria via France in Arabic and French. Of course that is normally completely off the air before 2300. What is it?? Sounds like a major station (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
