Glenn Hauser logs November 29, 2021

** CUBA [and non]. Checking out what RHC is doing during prime time, UT Mon Nov 29, where something is always multiply wrong:

New 9700 is already on at 0217 in English about José Martí, S9+15/20. This is also splashing upon 9710 where RHC is still in Spanish, only S9+10 and also distorted with music. NOT (yet?) on 9650 replacing 9710 as per official schedule. And // 5040. 9710 still at 0353.

6000 is the only 49m channel on the air at 0233 and in English. 9700 apparently replaces 6165, good news for 6160- WBCQ. 6000 still RHC English at 0655.

9700, at 0353 RHC English has faded way down and is now about equal to CCI from Voice of Turkey IS, prior to 0400 Turkish which is legitimately registered here until 0700, 500 kW at 310 degrees for W Europe, but also USward. Rechecked at 0505, 9700 RHC is now back to VG S9+27 and no sign of TRT - which has its own erroneous issues. But at 0557, 9700 bears nothing but Turkish music, no more RHC, which a previous night stayed on 9700 only in English well past 0700.

6060 RHC Spanish is now on at 0404, S9+10/15, from *0400? Still only 6000 on 49m in English. At 0505, 6060 RHC Spanish has heavy Qu`ranRM which is RTA Algeria via FRANCE as legit sked 0400-0600, 500 kW, 160 degrees from Issoudun. At 0602, 6060 has RHC English in the clear, S9+27. At one of the English chex, I forget which, RHC was talking about Fidel`s support for Timor Leste; whatever became of them?

6100, usual RHC English after 0500, is not to be heard at all at 0505, 0602. Also at 0602, still no 6165 or 6145 English even tho 9700 is not on either. At 0654, 9700 does bear the TRT IS again, S2-S8 with flutter. All logs before 0654 on the KB0FX SDR in MO, then direct.

The Other Side: Yes, Cuba is a Failed State --- The government continues to complain about US attempts to depict Cuba as a failed state. Dimas Castellanos La Habana 29 Nov 2021 - 16:34 CET (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE? 18127 USB, Nov 29 at 1529, after some contacts, CQs repeated from TM220AYT ?? Very strange callsign. The TM prefix belongs to France, or overseas France. No hits at lookup nor in broad Google search. The penultimate letter may be wrong, but am rather sure there are *three* numbers in it. However searching on TM220*** we get one hit:

``TM220BP France flag France Patrick & Franck MENARD from 2020 qsl only via Buro France QSL: F4GFE,REF BUREAU - NO E.QSL`` which was a special event in 2018y about the 220th anniversary of ``The Battle of the Pyramids, also known as the Battle of Embabeh, was a major engagement fought on July 21, 1798 during the French Invasion of Egypt...`` --- so another such TM220 call is possible, but why can`t I find it? Perhaps some of our hams know about it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 AM & 6919.9 AM, Nov 29 at 2324, VP signals traces of music, I keep getting if nothing else on the pirate band. HFUnderground today has a number of unID reports on 6925, 2101-2420:,89702.0.html and then 0015-0216+ as Coastal Rock Radio, maybe not the same one:,89710.0.html and nothing on 6919.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 530, Nov 29 at 0704, surprised to hear Fox News as there are not any US stations here, just Canada and Cuba. But seems to be // local 960 KGWA as well as whatever follows. Must be some kind of external mixing product with other local 1390 KCRC at 430 kHz separations. Does not go away with attenuation, but maybe caused by unusually clipping the inside random wire onto the adjacent YB-400? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9700, TRT clashes with CUBA: q.v.

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: Neil Gates of WMRI Europe explains what happened with WOR 2113 airing before 1330 instead 2114 after 1330 Sunday Nov 28 on 9670:

``Hello Glenn, On Friday/Saturday a storm (storm Arwen) with winds of 90 miles per hour hit this part of the United Kingdom taking out power supply and internet connectivity. Our programmes are fed to the TX in Germany from a remote server which without power or internet we were unable to access so were unable to schedule yesterday's programming correctly for relay from Channel 292. Power and internet have now been restored and programmes will return to normal next Sunday December 5 with WOR returning to its 13.30 UT transmission time. My sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. 73 Neil Gates, WMRI Europe`` -- Tnx and sorry you had such problems.

WOR 2114 confirmed Sunday November 28 from 2102 UT on IRRS SW via AM Italia 918 kHz, via nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed, Sun Nov 28 at 2330 on WRMIs, interior random wire into DX-398: 5950 good; 9955 good but with pulse jamming, better before 2400.

Also confirmed, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good on ATS-909 with shorter clip-on

Also confirmed, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+20/25 into Missouri SDR

Also confirmed, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 54 Hz = 6159.946, S9 into MO SDR; and no ACI since Cuba q.v. moved to 9700. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW, 5010 to S

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5050, UT Mon Nov 29 at 0037, WWRB still on here instead of expected 3215, so probably not yet on new 3360 either after 0200 altho did not get around to checking. Next weekend? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

The K7RA Solar Update

Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports: The Thanksgiving holiday and my hospitalization delayed the usual Friday Solar Update for November 26.

Average daily sunspot numbers for the November 18 – 24 reporting week were down by four points, from 30.9 to 26.9. Average daily solar flux went from 80.8 to 80.1.

Average daily planetary A index edged up from 7 to 7.9, and average daily middle latitude numbers rose from 4.9 to 5.4.

Predicted solar flux is 92, 94, and 94 on November 29 – December 1; 88 on December 2 – 6; 82 on December 7 – 8; 85 on December 9 – 11; 82 and 80 on December 12 – 13; 78 on December 14 – 20; 80 on December 21; 82 on December 22 – 26; 85 on December 27 – 30, and 82 on December 31 through January 4, 2022.

Predicted planetary A index is 8 on November 29; 5 on November 30 – December 2; 10 on December 3 – 4; 8 on December 5 – 6; 5 on December 7 – 11; 8, 12, and 10 on December 12 – 14; 5 on December 15 – 16; 8, 10, and 10 on December 17 – 19; 5 on December 20 – 23; 10 and 8 on December 24 – 25, and 5 on December 26 – January 7.

Here is the geomagnetic activity forecast for November 26 – December 22 from F.K. Janda, OK1HH. This will be his final report.

The geomagnetic field will be:

quiet on December 5, 10, 12
quiet to unsettled on December 9, 11
quiet to active on November 28 – 30, December 2, 6, 8
unsettled to active on November 26 – 27, December 3 – 4, 7, 15
active to disturbed on December 1, (13 – 14,) 16, 19, 21 – 22

Solar wind will intensify on November (29 – 30), December (1,) 2 – 4, 14 – 15, 29 – 5


– Parentheses mean lower probability of activity enhancement.

– “[This is] my latest prediction of Earth’s magnetic field activity. Nothing like that existed 45 years ago, so I learned to compile predictions of the Earth's magnetic field activity. Today we have relatively good forecasts from several places and, given my age, I can finally end this activity. Thank you for your attention.” — F.K. Janda, OK1HH

N4SO reports from the Alabama Gulf Coast (EM50tk:

“Frequency is 24.915, FT8 mode (WSJT-X ver 2.5.2 68dc11). Propagation is to the northeast, all with the same approximate bearing of 41° – 54, grids FN20, FM29, FM18, EM74, FM05, and EM84.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
22 - 28 November 2021

Solar activity was at very low levels with only B-class activity
observed. The largest flare was a B8.4 at 28/0859 UTC from Region
2900 (S26, L=256, class/area, Dso/160 on 28 Nov). This was also the
most active region on the disk during the highlight period. Other
notable activity included an approximate 10 degree filament eruption
centered near S36E33 and observed in GONG H-alpha imagery beginning
at 24/0958 UTC. The associated CME was observed in LASCO coronagraph
imagery beginning at 24/1412 UTC. WSA/Enlil modelling indicated an
Earth-directed component with an arrival time of late on 27 Nov. No
other Earth-directed CMEs were observed during the highlight period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 23, 24 and 26 Nov due to CH HSS influences. Normal to
moderate levels were observed on 22, 25, 27 and 28 Nov.

Geomagnetic field activity reached unsettled levels on 22-23 Nov due
to influences from a negative polarity CH HSS. Unsettled levels were
also reached on 27-28 Nov due to the arrival of the aforementioned
CME from 24 Nov. A relatively weak shock was observed near 27/2153
UTC causing enhancements in solar wind parameters. Total field
reached a maximum of 17 nT during the event at 28/0057 UTC, while
the Bz component reached a maximum southward deviation of -14 nT at
the same time. Solar wind speeds reached a maximum near 400 km/s.
Quiet levels were observed on 24-26 Nov with a nominal solar wind.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
29 November - 25 December 2021

Solar activity is expected to be very low to low throughout the
outlook period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 10-12 Dec and 20-23 Dec due to
recurrent CH HSS influences. Normal to moderate levels are expected
for the remainder of the period.

Geomagnetic field activity reached active levels early on 29 Nov due
to lingering influences from the 24 Nov CME. Unsettled to active
levels are expected on 03-05 Dec, 12-14 Dec, and 17-18 Dec due to
influences from recurrent CH HSS activity. Quiet to unsettled levels
are expected for the remainder of the period.

Antenna Rai Caltanissetta, i chiarimenti del'arch. Daniela Vullo, Soprintendente ai Beni Culturali

“Disponibilità alla riproposizione del vincolo in attesa delle valutazioni dipartimentali”

Facendo seguito al comunicato stampa inerente quanto in oggetto, pubblicato in data 21 novembre scorso da varie testate giornalistiche a firma dei rappresentanti delle Associazioni Legambiente Caltanissetta, Comitato Parco Antenna, WWF Sicilia Centrale Caltanissetta, Italia Nostra Regionale, con la presente si ritiene di poter fornire tutte le opportune informazioni e i necessari chiarimenti su quanto contestato a questa Soprintendenza, in merito al proprio operato, nelle attività che riguardano la richiesta di smontaggio dell’antenna in parola avanzata da Rai Way, tramite SCIA, al Comune di Caltanissetta.

Primariamente si rappresenta che questa Soprintendenza, da sempre disponibile al dialogo ed al confronto con le Associazioni che operano nel settore dei beni culturali ed ambientali, non ha mai ricevuto, in merito all’argomento in parola, nessuna richiesta di incontro da parte delle sopra citate Associazione ed in particolare da Legambiente e/o WWF Sicilia Centrale, firmatarie, oltre che del comunicato stampa predetto, anche di due diversi atti di diffida inviati a questo Ufficio in data 15 e 19 novembre u.s. . Per tale ragione si evidenzia che, a giudizio della scrivente, sarebbe stato opportuno anteporre alle note formali, fortemente accusatorie nei confronti di questa Soprintendenza, un incontro tra le parti, sereno e costruttivo, finalizzato prevalentemente a ricevere opportuni chiarimenti sulla possibilità di applicare le norme di tutela segnalate dalle dette Associazioni negli atti di diffida.

Evidenziato ciò si precisa altresì che questa Soprintendenza, con due note datate 18 e 19 novembre indirizzate alle Associazioni Legambiente e WWF (regolarmente ricevute), aveva già puntualmente riscontrato, con precise argomentazioni, gli atti di diffida predetti, pertanto non si comprende la  ragione per la qua- le non si faccia minimamente cenno di esse nel comunicato stampa del 21 novembre ove peraltro si ripropongono quesiti che già avevano ottenuto risposte..

Per tale ragione è opportuno riepilogarne qui i contenuti, ricordando che con sentenza n. 3853/21 il TAR Sicilia, sez. I, ha annullato il decreto del Dirigente Generale del Dipartimento dei Beni Culturali e dell’Identità Siciliana n. 1026 del 13 marzo 2017 con il quale l’antenna era stata dichiarata di interesse culturale ai sensi dell’art 10 comma 3 lettera d) del D.Lgs.n.42/2004

Nel primo “atto di diffida” del 15 novembre, le sopra citate Associazioni Legambiente e WWF, sottolineando che l’antenna RAI e le altre strutture ed immobili di pertinenza rappresentano beni di  rilevante interesse sotto il profilo storico-culturale (…) invitavano-diffidavano questa Soprintendenza all’applicazione dell’art. 150 del D.Lgs. 42/2004 finalizzato all’adozione di misure cautelari sospensive volte ad inibire temporaneamente la demolizione dell’antenna senza valutare che il citato articolo 150 del “Codice dei Beni culturali” è riferito alla parte terza del Codice, “Beni Paesaggistici”, mentre nell’atto di diffida si fa ricorso a beni di rilevante interesse sotto il profilo storico-culturale che si attestano alla parte seconda – titolo Primo, del Codice, “Beni Culturali”. Ne consegue, chiaramente, l’inapplicabilità dell’articolo predetto.

Inoltre è stato comunicato alle suddette Associazioni che è preclusa anche la possibilità di applicazione del citato articolo 150 all’area ove insiste l’antenna, come sancito da una recente sentenza del Consiglio di Stato – sezione quarta- n.7856 del 3 dicembre 2020 che così recita: "Il potere di cui all’art. 150 d.lgs. n. 42 del 2004 è attribuito all’Amministrazione al solo fine di scongiurare interventi potenzialmente lesivi dell’ambiente nelle more dell’apposizione di un vincolo e non ha, viceversa, valenza generale. Il potere inibitorio è, in altri termini, escluso allorché si tratti di bene già sottoposto a tutela. Nel caso specifico l’area di sedime è assoggettata a regime vincolistico con tutela 1 dal Piano Territoriale Paesaggistico di Caltanissetta, approvato con D.A. 1858 del 02.07.2015".

Con il secondo atto di diffida si sosteneva che l’antenna RAI costituisce “bene culturale di interesse pubblico” in quanto inclusa in un elenco allegato al D.A. n.7732 del 9.10.1995 (dichiarazione di notevole interesse pubblico del territorio della Media Valle del Salso ricadente nei comuni di Caltanissetta e Santa Caterina Villarmosa).

A tal proposito questa Soprintendenza così rispondeva in data 19 novembre scorso:

– L’elenco allegato al D.A. n.7732 del 9.10.1995 contiene un palese errore in merito all’Antenna Rai, inserita tra i Beni Architettonici (tale non poteva essere perché non esisteva il presupposto normativo di cui all’art. 1 della legge 1089/1939 non essendo trascorsi 50 anni dalla sua realizzazione).

– Ancor di più l’errore si ripete nell’accostare al cosiddetto “bene architettonico” un riferimento normativo (indicato come vincolo n.431/85) ad esso totalmente estraneo quale la “legge Galasso”.
– A dimostrazione che quanto sopra evidenziato non risultava conforme alla normativa del settore, in sede di redazione del Piano Paesaggistico della Provincia di Caltanissetta, gli autori del Piano predetto hanno ritenuto di non inserire l’antenna in parola tra i “beni isolati” da sottoporre a tutela (vedi cartografia allegata).

– Si evidenzia altresì che l’area ove insiste l’antenna, nel predetto Piano Paesaggistico non risulta inserita tra i “siti rilevanti”, infatti ha livello di tutela I cioè minimo.
In questa sede, ad ulteriore supporto di quanto sopra esposto, si invita chi legge ad una semplice riflessione.

Se fosse stato vigente un vincolo paesaggistico risalente al 1995, come asserito dalle predette Associazioni (dunque con efficacia immediata), per quale ragione questa Soprintendenza nel 2017, avrebbe dovuto proporre al Dipartimento Beni Culturali il vincolo di tutela recentemente annullato dal TAR, il cui iter procedurale è lungo e complesso? In merito inoltre a presunte “autorizzazioni” allo smontaggio dell’antenna rilasciate da questa Soprintendenza per le quali si diffida la scrivente a disporne l’annullamento d’ufficio e la revoca degli atti, come già esplicitato nelle citate note inviate alle due Associazioni predette questa Soprintendenza non ha mai emesso alcun provvedimento bensì con la nota n. 9682 dell’ 11.11.2021 ha comunicato al Comune di Caltanissetta che lo smontaggio dell’antenna non necessita di autorizzazione paesaggistica, in aderenza alla sentenza n.3416 del 27 marzo 2018 del TAR Lazio II-bis che, in materia di demolizione senza ricostruzione, così recita:

E’ da escludere che interventi mera demolizione di opere già esistenti (ovvero interventi di demolizione a cui non faccia seguito alcuna ricostruzione) versanti tra l’altro in condizioni ormai “fatiscenti” nonché prive di un qualsiasi valore sotto ulteriori profili (quale ad esempio quello storico od artistico) possano essere annoverati tra gli interventi imponenti il previo rilascio del permesso di  costruire e, ancora, tra quelli soggetti al previo rilascio dell’autorizzazione paesaggistica da parte dell’autorità competente, attesa la piena idoneità di essi a garantire proprio la salvaguardia dello stato dei luoghi, così come oggetto di tutela da parte del legislatore.

In conclusione si sottolinea che questa Soprintendenza, nell’ambito dei poteri ad essa conferiti dalla vigente normativa del settore, può porre in essere solamente azioni amministrative e attività di tutela discendenti da precise disposizioni legislative. A tal proposito si comunica (come già  anticipato nelle nota inviata il 18 novembre alle due Associazioni in parola) che in merito alla possibilità di avviare ulteriori azioni di tutela, consistenti esclusivamente nella riproposizione del vincolo recentemente annullato dalla sentenza del TAR, (ovviamente emendato dei vizi indicati e con le prescrizioni ivi contenute), questa Soprintendenza, in adempimento all’indirizzo politico avanzato in proposito dall’Assessore Regionale ai Beni Culturali, ha ufficialmente manifestato al superiore Assessorato, con note del 16 e 17 novembre, la propria disponibilità alla riproposizione del suddetto vincolo, il cui decreto, si ricorda, compete al Dirigente Generale del Dipartimento

La scrivente, ad oggi in attesa delle opportune e necessarie valutazioni dipartimentali, ha trasmesso altresì, per quanto di competenza, la richiesta Relazione Tecnica, comprensiva di valutazione economica inerente gli interventi di manutenzione ordinaria e straordinaria da effettuare sull’antenna, redatta dal Prof. Ing. Liborio Cavaleri, professore associato di Tecnica delle Costruzione dell’Università di Palermo, direttore dei lavori di monitoraggio che questa Soprintendenza ha commissionato ed avviato all’inizio del corrente anno sull’antenna e che nei giorni sorsi si sono conclusi.

Poi ci sono altre differenze, ad esempio oltre al Profeta Muhammad nell'Azan sciita viene ricordato anche Ali.

Glenn Hauser logs November 27-28, 2021

** CANADA. 401 MCW kHz, Nov 28 at 0734 UT, dash and YPO, 500 watt ND beacon in Peawanuck, Ontario. First audible tuned to 402 USB where mixing with HU Hutchinson KS really on 404. Only one logged before offdozing tonight despite entire continent clear of any Blitzstorms.

YPO, logged a number of times since Dec 8, 2018 when I appended: ``love these colourful placenames. Wikipedia: ``Peawanuck is an isolated Cree community in the Kenora District, Ontario, Canada. It is located near the confluence of the Winisk and Shamattawa rivers, about 35 km from the Winisk River's end in Hudson Bay. Its population is 237.`` --- that does not mean it is anywhere near Kenora in the SW corner of the province! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 6100, Nov 27 at 2245, anniversary of Commie Party in Spanish, with music; about China, not Cuba: CRI this hour via Beijing site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 7500, Nov 27 at 2254, two Chinese mixing for a total of S9+10: VOA via THAILAND, and imperialist ChiCom CNR1 jamming radio war, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 27 at 2246, jazz, presumably the RHC English hour; what else? Spanish defectively: 13740 S9+40 of dead air, then cuts on with historical talk, stronger than // 11760; 11850, S9+10 and suptorted; 9710, S9+25 but suptorted,

Note: the official RHC B21 sked shows the Antillas angle goes from 9710 to 9650 at 0000-0500, yet to be confirmed. Both appear in green for reasons unknown (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.0 AM, Nov 27 at 2242, S9-S7 of dead air, presumably some pirate. Halloween 365 reported a bit earlier:,89609.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

6920.0 AM, Nov 27 at 2243, S8-S6 of undermodulated music, some pirate. Nothing reported now in HFU but R. Pushka after 0025?,89612.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PHILIPPINES. 6150, Nov 27 at 2244, S9-S8 of talk in English and music, listed this hour as BBCWS via Tinang; no luck checking for R. Saturno, Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2114 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November 27 starting at 2036.5 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10 into KB0FX SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 28 at 0030 on WRMIs 7730 and 5950, both VG direct; program sked now shows something else now on 5950, maybe from next week?

Also confirmed UT Sunday November 28 already near the end at 0422 UT on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10 direct and finishing at 0425.5, so started really early circa 0356: tune in before 0400 to be safe and listen to the variable-length ham shows.

Not awake at 1330 Sun Nov 28 for WOR on WMRI Europe, via Channel 292, Germany on 9670. Did anyone hear it? roger in Germany reports:

``WRMI [sic] via 9670 kHz 1300-1330z, WOR2113 Nov 28 at 2:22 PM [= 1322 UT] [sic] "Now Playing: Glenn Hauser - wor2113.mp3" 9670 kHz // webstream roger``

So he axually heard last week`s WOR before 1330 on 9670? When I look at the schedule page at 1650, there is nothing about WOR, rather 1300 as Bex Carter, 1330 nothing, 1400 Classic Rock. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2330 UT Sunday WRMI 5950 to NNW

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Sat Nov 27 at 2302, WRMI for first airing of `Encore` classical music --- NOT. First hearing Indian classical music, sitar, tabla, etc., then 2311 a `cello sonata alone; 2327 mixture of S Asian and `cello, for rest of hour with no announcements at all until 2359.5 WRMI ID and into Wavescan. This certainly does not match the Tumbril playlist for this week or last. I notified Brice. Nice music but not Encore, which still shows on the System L sked.

5850, UT Sun Nov 28 at 0100-0200, next broadcast of `Encore` on WRMI succeeds, matching the Nov 27 playlist with Brice`s commentary. Next repeat on WRMI should be UT Monday at 0300 on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5050, UT Sun Nov 28 at 0014, WWRB still on summer frequency/band, contrary to what Dave announced last week, shift to 3215/new 3360. 0200 still on 5050, which is when 3360 was supposed to start instead of 3195 or 3185; eventually? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Nov 28 at 0055, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` already underway so switch to $tereo webcast; but original recordings of George Wright as a teenage thorganist are mono: no wonder, dating from 1938y? Bob Heil explains how the recording fi was as hi as possible for that era. Finishes at 0140.5, so might have started circa 0040 if an hour long, but you never know. Is it too much to ask for a program to stick to a specific start time, whatever it may be? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

A cuore aperto: Zenith H500 Transoceanic (1951)

Oggi ho pensato di mettere a cuore aperto un ricevitore molto noto tra i collezionisti e davvero molto bello. Si tratta del noto ZENITH H500, portatile risalente al 1951, costruito in varie versioni negli Stati Uniti e spesso dato a corredo degli ufficiali dell'esercito per ascoltare le trasmissioni della Voice of America in qualunque punto si trovassero; il manuale lo definisce molto utile anche a naviganti, campeggiatori, sportivi ed in generale a tutti coloro che avessero necessità di ascoltare notizie e previsioni del tempo, contrassegnate in rosso su ogni banda, da parte di stazioni radiofoniche appositamente create.


Alimentato a batterie o direttamente dalla rete a 110 volts, continua o alternata, impiega 5 valvole miniatura con accensione ad 1,4 volts. Quando non funziona a batteria, oggi introvabile, l'alimentazione e data tramite un diodo rettificatore al selenio ed una grossa resistenza di caduta che provvede ad alimentare i filamenti; l'anodica viene ottenuta tramite una ulteriore sezione di questa stessa resistenza. esisteva anche un adattatore, da inserire nella femmina posta sul telaio, che consentiva di alimentare l'apparecchio anche a 220 volts, ma personalmente, non l'ho mai visto.


Il circuito è il classico supereterodina con media frequenza a 455 Khz. Il ricevitore è dotato di una valvola amplificatrice in AF che conferisce una sensibilità notevole su tutte la gamme esplorabili. I sette circuiti accordati ed il controllo AGC che agisce su tre valvole contemporaneamente, fanno sì che questo apparecchio, pur essendo estremamente sensibile, non entri in saturazione neanche con segnali fortissimi.


La selettività, direi molto buona, è garantita sia dai circuiti accordati ma anche dalle "nuove" medie frequenze con nucleo in alnico ed isolate su gommini antimicrofonici. E' dotato di una antenna telescopica per la ricezione delle onde corte e di una loop magnetica per l'ascolto delle onde medie che può essere tolto dallo sportello superiore e fissato alla finestra tramite un cavetto di prolunga.


La bassa frequenza, di ottima qualità, è fornita da una valvola 3V4 che, unitamente al sistema brevettato RADIORGAN, equalizzatore posto sul frontale e molto efficace e ad un ottimo altoparlante magnetico a forte flusso, garantisce un ascolto eccellente. Le gamme coperte, oltre alle onde medie, sono: 31, 25, 19 e 16 metri, più la copertura continua dai 2 ai 4 megacicli, ove erano appunto presenti stazioni meteo e servizi vari.


Le valvole impiegate, tutte del tipo miniatura ad 1,4 volts, sono: 1U4, 1L6, 1U4, 1U5 e 3V4. Il tutto è contenuto in un mobiletto parallelepipedo con gli spigoli stondati e dotato di una robusta maniglia per il trasporto. I suoi accessori trovano posto sullo schienale interno del mobiletto, dove c'è anche un portavalvole a 5 posti dove tenere le valvole di ricambio. il cambio gamma avviene tramite pulsantiera e sugli stessi pulsanti è stampigliata la gamma selezionata; accanto a questi, sulla scala, viene anche riportato il miglior momento del giorno in cui sia migliore l'ascolto per ogni gamma.



All'atto della ricezione, questo ricevitore testimonia tutta la sua qualità, regalando un ottimo ascolto sia delle onde corte, che delle medie, con ottimo audio e buona selettività. Anche dopo 70 anni, il nostro ZENITH H500 fa ancora ottimamente il suo dovere ed è un piacere ascoltarlo. Spero che anche questo glorioso apparecchio sia di interesse per tutti gli appassionati.
