Glenn Hauser logs October 9-10l, 2021

** BRAZIL. 11815, Oct 10 at 0059, S1-S3 with flutter maybe English? Then song plays right thru hourtop 0101+. Must be R. Brasil Central, only station known active at this hour; nor was there an off-frequency tipoff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, Oct 10 at 0104- 0111: 12880, Chinese S1-S2 with flutter; 12820, 13020, 13130, JBA carriers on traditional channels; 13530 & 13920 & 14920, JBA S1 with flutter; 16100 JBA with CODAR QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145, Oct 10 at 0042, RHC English jumps again to here from 6165, still // 6000; clearing 6160- for Area 51. Something`s fortunately wrong at RHC. 0625 recheck, still 6145; also in English: 6100, 6060 with humbuzz, and 5040 on late (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 11880, Oct 10 at 0101, S9/+20 of dead air with some hum; finally cut on modulation 0102.6 of KBSWR in Spanish about NK rapprochement. Was this Grimesland`s failure or somewhere upstreamm? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840, Oct 10 at 0620, RNZP again tonight on frequency extended instead of 11725, discussion about divorce and marriage, good S9. Nothing on 11725 or 7245. That would be the `TED Radio Hour`, from NPR, Sunday 7:04 pm local: Leave it to NZ to have the good sense to broadcast some US NPR programs on SW, unlike any of our own stations.

Altho always misleadingly headed as effective from start of season March 28, instead of latest revision date, the How To Listen sked has belatedly now been updated to eliminate 11725 in our late-nights:

** OKLAHOMA. `Weekend Radio` comedy show from WCLV Cleveland has a competition to present funny faux-pas from the press, so we submitted this from our local paper:

It won the prize of CD already received, Bridge 9470, ``Berl Senofsky in Concert at EXPO `58 Brussels``, violin and piano music by Ravel, Bartók, Rachmaninoff, Ysaÿe, Creston, Wieniawski, Bach, Brahms2.

Here`s a lo-fi capture of that segment on the UT Oct 10 show at 0326:

Furthermore, as we later notified Sagebrush Bob, the Eagle ed/pub later wrote a whole column about this: (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2107 monitoring: confirmed Saturday October 9 at new 2330 on WRMI 5950, VG S9+30 into TN SDR.

Also confirmed on NEXUS-IBA webcast-only at 2334 about 3 or 4 minutes behind WRMI, so they must still be sticking in some FS News first, probably causing a few minutes of WOR to be chopped at the end.

Also confirmed UT Sunday October 10 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30 direct but not enough to eliminate S7/S9 storm noise level from South Dakota/Minnesota and Bahamas/Cuba.

Not confirmed UT Sunday Oct 10 circa 0315 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM: still completely off the air as it was at 1930.

Zzz past 1300 Sun Oct 10; did anyone hear the new 1230 on WMRI Europe via Channel 292, Germany, 9670? And how was the QRM from Vietnamese clandestine via Taiwan, and jamming? [BTW, even I slipped and called it ``WRMI`` on WOR 2107]. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW; 9395 to NNW, 9455 to WNW

** U S A. 7489.9v, UT Sun Oct 10 at 0616, WBCQ on very late again with some classic rock, S8-S9, a regular weekly thing? Last time caught at same hour was Oct 4, UT Mon not Sun. Either appears on WBCQ program sked? Of course not! Supposedly off at 0330* Sun & Mon and every night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Oct 10 at 0015, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` already; direct as I`m not near a $tereo webcast. 0031 after playing one of his own compositions, Bob Heil mentions that from now on it`s an hour long, and next week`s will be the ``best ever`` special with his mentor George Wright. It ends at 0055, into Tedad. Bob never dares specify an exact time for the show, but if it were an hour this week, must have started about 2354 Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4875-USB, Oct 10 at 0046, MARS net designator 4IX7, and some Airforce-type calls like AFZ4W#. No sign of R. Roraima, Boa Vista, 4875 supposedly on till 0300, nor anytime lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-LSB, Oct 10 at 0039, 2-way in Brazilian, while I am not hearing any N American pirates on the Saturday night band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7620, Oct 100 at 0618, surprise mixture of talk show about Medicare, and weaker audio sounds like Brother Scare; shortly cuts off by itself. Smax of mixing product between SW and local MW, but can`t figure out how nor ever heard before here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18241.4-USB approx., Oct 10 at 1416, JBA 2-way not English, maybe Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
