Glenn Hauser logs November 13-14, 2021

** BOTSWANA. 9775, Nov 14 at 0252, S9-S6 of open carrier. Must be VOA warming up for scheduled 0300-0500 English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9900-, Nov 13 at 2125, R. Cairo, S9+30 into UTwente but dead air except for some hum and possible traces of English modulation. AM Synch mode says ``not locked`` in red, yet reads out carrier at 9899.687; still the same at 2213. And similar results by other monitors (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 17800+, Nov 14 at 1517, Minitransat special still going 2 days after original finish, météo in French by OM, then YL in French with rankings deuxième, troisième, etc., etc.

17800-DRM, Nov 14 at 1722, YL again with lo-fi 8.08 kbps rankings in French, mixing in numbers in English, via Maryland SDR, SNR 21 dB, S9+5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2112 monitoring: confirmed Saturday November 13 at 2030 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10 into nearby SDR, already 25 minutes into so started way early circa 2005.

Also confirmed UT Sunday Nov 14 at 0030 on WRMI 5950, S9+25 into Knoxville SDR at one-hour-later time; also on separate System still at 0030 UT Sun Nov 14 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Sun Nov 14 finally at 0505 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+12 into nearby SDR, about 17 minutes into so started late circa 0448. So there is no correlation between the two airings as to earliness/lateness. It all depends on variable-length ham shows in between.

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun Nov 14 at 0100, WRMI with Texas Radio Shortwave carrying Europirate R. Jingle Bells, as we *just can`t wait* for Xmasmx. Was erroneously publicized for one hour earlier, which would have pre-empted `Wavescan` & WOR but they/we were still on. Another TRSW hour from 0200, Thanksgiving-themed. Too bad there is such a pileup of music shows at same 01 hour Saturday evenings, e.g. `TOUTA` on WTWW, `Encore` on WRMI 5850 & 7780, and `Mighty KBC` on Nauen. Supposedly also prime time for pirates but I don`t hear any in one quick scan of the 4+, 5+ and 7- MHz piratareas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Nov 14 at 0053, WTWW-2 starting `Theatre Organ Under The Arch`, so I switch immediately to $tereo webcast. Another tribute to George Wright ``the greatest theater organist``. Or is it a repeat? Bob Heil says he has been working on this for some time, including early recordings of GW`s performances and voice. This one lasts 59 minutes until 0152 jarringly back into hard-sell Tedads and hamstuff (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5050, Nov 14 at 0056, WWRB weekend-only gospel huxters are
still on 59m, another week into B21 season when 93m would be expected; and 0239 still going at S9+45 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7520, Nov 14 at 0249, VP S5-S3 hymn, // TOMBS on 7570, 7730 etc. 7520 is WWCR-4 now at 00-03. This transmitter on 5890/9980/7520 is 24/7 TOMBS except for Tue-Sat 03-05 other gospel huxters (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, Nov 14 at 0253, KVOH with jazz at S9/+30. New sked shows Pat Conrad`s `Jazz Session` gets only this one hour per week, UT Sun 0200-0300; followed by 0300 `Wavescan` which also airs UT Tue. Total 9975 span is 02-07 except UT Mon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, Nov 14 at 1757 UT, still S9+20 of dead air from KLEY, Wellington KS. 250 watts, left on 24 hours despite night license for ONE WATT -- a joke in itself. Last time I checked was Oct 29, no doubt silent since and before. If they are keeping their 100.3 translator which I can`t hear, modulated as ``The Wave``, why is it too much trouble to mod the original AM, no one cares? BTW, I notice that MW club editors keeping up with station news have ignored my continuing reports about this strange situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
