Glenn Hauser logs January 3-4, 2022

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated January 4

** CUBA. 13680, Jan 3 at 2101, RHC in Brazuguese. This frequency still not picked up by Aoki or EiBi, altho I already reported it Dec 17 at 2121. It may be sporadic. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Jan 4 at 0222, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but JBM, along with JBA carrier parasites 11840 & 11860, while 11760 is much better; and 5040 is S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 4 at 0225, R. Rebelde only S9, must be QRP, as 4765 Progreso hits S9+20, and 5040 RHC S9+20/30. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, Jan 4 at 0727, RHC S9+20/30 in Spanish, on way beyond when any Spanish is supposed to SW. In fact it was still going at 0840 per Bryan Clark in NZ, and could pose a problem for Vanuatu if it resume. At least Jeypore, India is out of the way. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 350 MCW kHz, Jan 4 at 1606 UT, RG, 400 watt ND beacon ``Gally`` at Will Rogers World Airport, southwest OKC, is BACK! Had been off for 2 days. AFAIK there were no crash landings during (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PERU. 4810.0, Jan 4 at 0725, JBM talk and music S9 audible in LSB mode only vs STANAG, presumed R. Logos. Some may hear it best by tuning to 4808 as read-out but the carrier frequency is what counts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 3 at 2302, NO signal from VOT English to North America, into Maryland SDR. Just in case also checking UTwente, where it pounds in on the way to us - not there either at 2307, but weak Chinese is already on instead of *2310. Now that makes a JBA carrier into Maryland. Still no TRT at 2355. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2119 monitoring, 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
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 7505, Jan 4 at 0228, no signal from WRNO. But it`s on at 0723, S9+10/20 but distorted praise music. Something`s always mis-modulated at Metairie (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 4 at 0230-0241+, and still/again past 0358, S9+20 of dead air from WTWW-1 except for some hum; meanwhile 5085 WTWW-2 is nominal. Wake up, Ted. PPPP`ll get you (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1200 kHz, January 4 at 0744 UT, once again gospel huxter fighting it out with WOAI San Antonio, making a SAH, no doubt KFNW on day pattern or ND, and could easily be day power of 50 kW. About it from ``North American News``, edited by Andrew Brade, January Medium Wave News:

``1200 KFNW West Fargo, ND – station has a CP and Programme Test Authority for a new antenna installation, at a new site, with the same facilities as previously. The station is still licensed for 50 kW days and 13 kW nights, both with a directional array from a four- tower installation of which three are used during the day. The pattern for the directional array is to the north. Pending the relocation of the towers, KFNW had been operating under a non-directional STA since June 2021 with 10 kW days and 3.25 kW nights`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, January 4 at 0242: 531, 612, 639, 837, 855; and that`s all (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, Jan 4 at 0728, JBA carrier. I might guess 4KZ, Innisfail, Queensland, but sunset in nearby Cairns is not until 0855. Aoki shows Vanuatu also on 5055 as well as 5040, but neither now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


We are pleased that even here in deep-red Enid OK, our right-leaning local newspaper dares to front-page this:
