Glenn Hauser logs May 17, 2022

** AUSTRALIA. 10124 USB, May 17 at 0628, ragchew hamnet of Oz accents, more unID VKs in the Aussie-only phone subband on 29 m, 10120-10135 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 9667.177V, May 17 at 0635, RVM music, carrier wobbling audibly but still exceeding 9667 from nominal 9665 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, May 17 at 2001, RHC theme JBA and sounds like Portuguese/Brasilian. This frequency is still missing from EiBi and Aoki tho I reported it some time ago. Is anyone paying attention?

15140, May 17 at 2002, RHC definitely in Brazuguese, S6/S8 but not // 13680. Maybe two separate playouts. Aoki is way out of date, still showing winter timing for English on 15140 at 2000-2100. EiBi on 15140 at 2000-2030 shows French. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, May 17 at 2201, R. Cairo still in extremely distorted English, plus hum S9+30/40 into UTwente. As Alan Holder quipped, ``something`s always amiss at Abis``, but that does not do this justice; rather, ``egregious in Egypt`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SRI LANKA. Correxion to typo in frequency as ``15709.079``! Delete original report and replace with: 15709.979, May 16 at 1447, JBA carrier. Scheduled is AWR Chinese via Trincomalee on ``15710`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 17 at 0500-0506, UR1 via WRMI, day 82 of Russia`s war, `Ukraine: Security Issue` in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday May 17 at 0030 on WRMIs, into Missouri SDR: 9395, S9+22 and 9455, S8/S9+10. Next:

2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 [NEW]
1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much appreciated, by MO check in US$ on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

Or via PayPal not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. ``Glenn, the WRMI spurspikes below 9455 have been going on for at least a couple of weeks. I can hear them well up to 150 kHz below fundamental when reception is good. One night they pretty much ruined otherwise decent reception of BBCWS via SMG at 0500 on 9410. Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas`` as of May 13. Also, typo in my report as ``9355`` instead of correct 9335, spurs heard even next to WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Tue May 17 at 1930, VOA News via WRMI, and 1935 `Flashpoint: Ukraine` dated today, not Mon May 16 edition which got lost, since 72-hour-previous Fri May 13 edition played yesterday. S9/+10 into Maryland SDR. But followed by another anomaly at 2000, faux-time-signal and VORW, John claiming it be Sunday May 15 on 5850 doing a full new show tho did not feel well (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, May 17 at *0155, WBCQ IS & ID loop, just reactivated for first time, ex-4790 for Radio Angela. S9/+5 into Maryland SDR reading -22 Hz = 5129.978 as every Classic `BCQ frequency must be at least slightly askew. At 0200 starts `Marion`s Attic`. We have now escaped CODAR QRM and the uteblaaps! No QRM to 5130, but still some storm crashes inevitably in spring/summer. Yet listenable, and better than the original 7490v airing too early at 21 UT Fridays. 0300 next show is `Bluegrass State of Mind`. Or, is it ``Mine``? 5130 ex-4790 of course also applies to WORLD OF RADIO at 0400 UT Saturdays.

4790, from 0343 I inspect the ex-frequency via same remote: the uteblaaps are still there visible on waterfall and/or audible, once a minute near :00 and also near :42 past each minute. One at a time, in three different positions: below, right on, or above, 4790. They too are now free of WBCQRM - you`re welcome (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, May 17 at 0145, NO signal from WRNO which nominally starts at 0100. Also missing last night. Previous report to the WOR iog:

``7505even, ONLY EMPTY CARRIER of WRNO New Orleans at 1234 UT on May 13, S=9 in NY state, two 120 Hertz distance apart strings either sideband visible too.[selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews May 8 / 13)``

** CHINA [non]. 9790, May 16 at 0458, CRI Cantonese via CUBA is S9+40 atop CCI in French which is RFI from 0400. At 0506 check, RFI S9:15 in the clear on this 04-07 UT broadcast, huge collision during first hour. RHC not in HFCC so how could RFI possibly know of a problem? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, May 16 at 0513, RHC with S9+35 of dead air in English, or maybe JBM; 6060 & 6100 are off already; 6165 is on S9+40/45 and modulating; 5040 in Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 13650, May 16 at 2037, RRI first English of the day for N America is huge S9+50 into UTwente, but absent from // 11850, the ailing transmitter. 2045 `History Show` about a great poet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 9996 kHz, May 16 at 0456, binary code, no doubt RWM Taldom/Moskva. BTW, American media kept mispronouncing Móskva as the name of that downed naval vessel. They must never have heard any SW utterance of ``Govorit Moskvá`` with the stress obviously on the -a (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Also confirmed Sunday May 15 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+10 into Knoxville SDR. This airing perpetuates despite axed from websked.

Also confirmed UT Monday May 16 at 0301 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160-. Dead air at first, then an F-explative in the voice of Allan Weiner, as A51 sometimes inserts such amusements; WOR itself sounded slightly overmodulated/distorted. Next:

** U S A. (7489.9v), Sunday May 15 from 2200, WBCQ webcast of `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`, music from Ireland for St Patrix Day as originally broadcast in 2017y, rerun of the third episode when they were only a semihour. That should rereplay Monday at 2300. Sunday 2230 restart another episode of variety starting with Serbia, 2250 greeting Michigan ARE where they like hot women and cold beer, as Ep #4. Reruns still as UB is Covidailing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, UT Monday May 16 after 0200, WBCQ Radio Angela with another opera on `Concert Hall`, but unlistenable via Maryland SDR with uteblaaps every few seconds. Was last chance for 4790, as 5130 to replace it from UT May 17. If the blaaps follow it there, that will be really suspicious (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, UT Monday May 16 at 0200 I do catch this week`s `Encore` of classical music via WRMI; almost sufficient into Knoxville SDR but a bit of Cuban jamming splat from 5955, whence Radio República has been kaput for a decade, unless BW narrowed, rather not for music, or LSBed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Monday May 16 at 1930 after R. Prague, WRMI with `Flashpoint Ukraine` from VOA webcast, soon specified as Friday May 13! Skipping the news first since it would have been 48 hours olds. Recall that FPU was missing Wed & Thu May 11 & 12, but I missed checking May 13: no problem: we`ve got it now! But, what about the Monday May 16 edition? Ended at 1954, then jive VOA ID, dead air; 1956 thumb piano music? WRMI ID and more music fill until Mistruths to Mistrust (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9940, May 16 at 2208, WTWW again/still absent as ``Voice of
Freedom`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 16 circa 1730 & 1800 UT on caradio, and circa 2200 fixed, KLEY Wellington KS still providing air that is dead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (91.5), Sunday May 15 from 2301 UT, KTXK Texarkana (about as far from Lubbock as possible in TX as I misplaced it last time, confused with KTXT), webcast of `Weekend Radio` originated with WCLV, on my last chance to hear this week`s episode on one of the fewer affiliates remaining. After a ToH commercial, another break at 2311 pushing buying a ``spot for $3 to support public radio``. Surely this is crossing the line into commercialism, and there were some brief spots later which sounded just like ads, not ``underwriting``. Yet to boot, show ended early at 2350 so some content must have been cut. HQ does provide a cue sheet confirming it was this week`s episode, but post facto could not figure what came out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Radio Angela moves to 5130 tonight

Effective with tonight's broadcast, Radio Angela will be on 5130 kHz rather than 4790 kHz. This should get us away from the CODAR and other major interference. We won't know for sure whether we will otherwise replicate the same coverage area, but many listeners have already adapted to using websdrs, and that option will still be available for anyone who loses the terrestrial signal with this move.
{0200-0410 UT}

Please advise your listeners of the change.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
09 - 15 May 2022

Solar activity ranged from low to high levels. Region 3006 (S30,
L=235, class/area=Eai/180 on 10 May) produced the strongest event of
the period, an impulsive X1/1b at 10/1355 UTC. Type II and Type IV
radio sweeps occurred near the event but wasn't clear if it was
associated with activity near the E limb, which also produced an
associated CME around the same time. The region only produced
C-class activity after that event and slowly decayed over the next
several days. Region 3007 (S24, L=184, class/area=Ekc/350 on 12 May)
produced an M1/1n flare on 11/1648 UTC. While being the most complex
region on the visible disk, it also only produced C-class activity
through the end of the reporting period. The remaining spotted
regions on the visible disk were relatively simple and produced only
low-level X-ray activity.

Other activity included several M-flare events that were produced
from activity from around both the E and W limbs. An M2 flare at
11/1858 UTC from the vicinity of Region 3004 (S16, L=324,
class/area=Dkc/500 on 05 May), which had around the W limb two days
before, produced a Type II and Type IV radio sweep. Ejecta from the
several CMEs observed during the period were determined to be off
the Sun-Earth line, with only the periphery of some of the CMEs
having the potential to cause minor enhancements near Earth.

No proton events above S1 (Minor) were observed at geosynchronous
orbit. An enhancement below the S1 threshold was observed after the
M2 flare from old Region 3004 around the W limb. The maximum >10
MeV proton flux was 5 pfu, observed early on 12 May.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
normal to moderate levels throughout the reporting period.

Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to active conditions.
Unsettled conditions that were observed on 09 May and 13 May were
likely associated with weak enhancements from transient activity.
Unsettled conditions on 14 May into active conditions on 15 May were
associated with the onset CIR followed by influence from a positive
polarity CH HSS. Solar wind speeds increased from the mid 300's
km/s to ~570 km/s on 15 May. The remainder of the reporting period
was at quiet levels.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
16 May - 11 June 2022

Solar activity is expected to be low levels throughout most of the
outlook period. With the exception of 21-22 May, regions associated
with M-flare activity are expected to be present on the visible
disk, carrying with them a slight chance for M-class activity.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to be at moderate levels from 16-25 May and 05-11 Jun. High
levels are expected on 26 May - 04 Jun and are associated with
influence from anticipated CH HSS activity.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at quiet to G1 (Minor)
geomagnetic storm levels. G1 levels are likely on 24 May; active
levels are likely on 16 May, 25-17 May, and 11 Jun; unsettled levels
are likely on 17 May, 19-20 May, 28 May, and 10 Jun. All elevations
in geomagnetic activity are anticipated in response to multiple,
recurrent CH HSSs. The remainder of the outlook period is expected
to be at mostly quiet levels.

Glenn Hauser logs May 14-15, 2022

** CHINA. 15800, 15760, 15360, May 15 at 1440, CNR1 jammers with bigsigs S7 to S9+10; Aoki shows all three are occupied only by Sound of Hope and jammers, all other stations prudently avoiding them at all hours. Also weaker but not synch, Chinese on 15110, which is CNR1 jamming against VOA Chinese via Philippines this hour only. At 1443 I find a couple more: 14980 JBA and 15920 S8/S9, also nothing but jammers and SOH per Aoki. 15 MHz is obviously the current OWF from East Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, May 15 at 0141, RHC Spanish S9/+20 undermodulated // 9535. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 15 at 0136, quick check of The Mighty KBC gets rock and Eric at S9+25/30 via EAST GERMANY, rivalling 9975 KVOH. Just another too much in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960 AM, May 15 at 0039, pirate S8/S9+5 vs high storm noise level -- HSNL, ``Games People Play`` and segué another song. 0109 YL ``Greatest hits of all time, Ball Smacker``, and tenpins SFX, now S9+15 between storm crashes. Off by 0147 check. Of the three simulpirates, this is #2 in overall quality. More: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97162.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930 USB, May 15 at 0101, S9+10 pirate with electric guitar; 0103 retune, DJ has spoken a bit and SSTV, 0104 music, ``Let`s Speak English, But Not My Salad[?]``, more electric guitar. 0127 SSTV is ending? then some more, 0128 music. 0148 SSTV? beepery sounds like looping past 0150 when DJ grunts, ``I Wanna Be a DJ`` song still playing until 0200 when there are some more noises unseeming SSTV, then off, or dead air as I am about to QRT. Of the three simulpirates, this is #1 in strength and quality.

These say Wasteland Radio, did stop at 0200*, with noisy SSTV images: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97163.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6920 USB, May 15 at 0102, third simulpirate and #3 in quality, S7 song vs HSNL; 0117 ``Time After Time``; 0122 off? No, was pause or fade. 0147 still on with weak music. WDOG, per: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,97164.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9730, UT Sun May 15 at 0139, classical `cello music, S9+15/30, 0140 applause and Romanian announcement. This is the 00-02 Galbeni to E NAm. Alan Roe`s Music on SW shows `Radio Concert Season` during the entire 01 hour, // 7420. More in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut; wish I could keep listening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 15 at 0500 UT, UR1 via WRMI as I break away from the WBOB DX test to another SDR, Maryland. Not usual `Ukraine: Security Issue` war news review, but JIP originally live press conference about winning the Eurovision Song Contest. Mixture of English and Ukrainian, translations back and forth and rather frustrating when the English is interrupted. At 0508 ``Happy Birthday`` song in English; still gong past 0513 when I resume WBOB. At 0534 recheck, now `U:SI` is playing later in the hour than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Saturday May 14 at 1930 on WRMI 15770, S9 into Maryland SDR. Also confirmed at 1930 on WRN webcast to N America. Also confirmed starting at 1931 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 steady into nearby SDR.

Not confirmed UT Sunday May 15 at 0030 on WRMI 7780 --- rather last week`s 2137 playing. Oh2, probably my fault, missed uploading to System D server. Fortunately this the first? airing by that, so 2138 is now ready for UT Mon 0030 on 7780, and UT Thu 0130 on 5010 ---

and as I check the skedgrid find a NEW airing on D, UT Friday 0330 on 7780. And another new one without notice, Tuesday 2330 on System G 9395 - an hour after System B on 9955, jammed by Cuba.

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 15 at 0321 about 3 minutes into so started circa 0318 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+5 direct vs HSNL.

Also confirmed Sunday May 15 ending at 1356 on WMRI via Channel 292, Germany, 9670, so must have started a bit early at 1327; and immediately into Russian. S5/S7 into NW Eire SDR. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 & 918? & 207?-Italy

Or via PayPal not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun May 15 at 0145, WRMI with `Encore` classical music, into Chinese opera, ``Liza Lim flies to the moon``, S9+15/40 atop HSNL. Due to all my pirate and other tuning this hour, I`m missing it! Must get next play UT Monday 0200 on 5950. 5850 has some hum unlike 5800, 5950. Now on 5950 is more music in the Saturday Night SW Music Glut, which I cannot possibly also audition, TRSW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9, May 15 at 0119, JBA carrier, must be WBCQ due to offset, but ailing very underpowered; vs S9+35/45 ACI de 6165 RHC. WBCQ refuses to deal with that clash (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790, May 15 at 0152, checking for uteblaaps but none heard direct, just S9 HSNL; *0155 WBCQ starts IS & ID loop buried in the noise for Radio Angela to follow. Uncle Bill tells us May 15:

``Over the next several days, WBCQ's Radio Angela will be migrating from 4790 kHz to a previous WBCQ frequency, 5130 kHz. WBCQ hopes to maintain the same coverage area with this move, perhaps even slightly greater in the US and Canada as west coast CODAR will no longer be a factor. During the week of May 16-22, listeners might want to check both frequencies during broadcast hours (typically 0200-04xx UTC). -Bill Tilford, Lafayette, Indiana``

Not mentioned are the uteblaaps, a last straw for 4790. I have advocated for getting off the 4-5 MHz band completely, especially in summer, as even without the QRM, the storm QRN level is intolerable; should move to a higher band, even 11 MHz, for greater coverage and less noise. This has been futile (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun May 15, WTWW-2 webcast despite scheduled from 0000, `Theatre Organ Under the Arch`, again no sign of it at these chex: 0015, 0037, rather hamstuff; nor direct on 5085: 0107 rock and ID from what used to be a cow pasture. O well, one less choice in the Saturday Evening SW Music Glut.

9940, BTW was not to be heard earlier in afternoon. `The Voice of Freedom` for Ukraine, seems quite irregular, at whim of Ted (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Sun May 15 at 0132, KVOH inbooms VG at S9+30/40, wideband near hifi, with a bit of jazz, then Pat Conrad announcement during `Saturday Night Jazz Session` --- one more in the Music Glut. He`s going to play some Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt and Coleman Hawkins, but first:: proselytizing quoting Hebrews, etc. 0134 finally music. He just ruined his own show, driving away rational listeners (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 600 kHz, UT Sun May 15 at 0414, S7 via Athens GA SDR, shared with Dene Lynneberg, NZ: WBOB Jaxonvil FL is DX-testing again, with some ABBA. 0417 says running 20 KW now, different than last night, asking for emails. 0418 Monkees, 0419 cutoff or fade - certainly weaker than when was 50 kW. CPC said this time WBOB would be running DX test noises, sweeps, Morse IDs, etc. I do hear sweeps upward thrice at 0421.

We have heavy lightning/storming nearby in Garfield County but not right here altho some flashes have been visible overhead. Yet I try for WBOB direct on the E/W longwire into R75: At 0425 HSNL; 0427 slow sweep up? 0429 more definite upsweeps in the QRM & QRN, so I can say I did get WBOB direct. Never heard any Morse IDs; were they ever emitted? Those would be best for DX test definite logging.

Back to Athens SDR: 0432 rock music with cutouts; 0435 dead air; 0435.6 music; 0440 outro as Elton John, ND 20 kW, now different than last night, asking reports; muses about the mystery of daytime skywave. Currently working on ground loop problem. 0443 sweeps up, 0444 song; 0447 different sweeps; 0500 Sinatra ``The End is Near``. I tune away for Ukraine, q.v. 0514 recheck, says WBOB is back to full power and will be on a few minutes longer, music, and I quit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 15 at 0116 UT, dead air atop presumed still weak KWKH, i.e. KLEY Wellington KS in its newest open-carrier service. By 0202, KWKH has built up, but still vs KLEY carrier, making a fast SAH. Our latest sunset of c. 0152 will be attained in less than a month, early June.

KLEY`s official SR/SS times in UT for May: 1115/0130 UT; June: 1115/0145. That won`t stop them from running the 250 watt day power all night instead of ONE watt, modulated or not (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sent to Robert Conrad, Weekend Radio, WCLV Cleveland:

``Weekend Radio disappearing May 15 at 7:09 PM

Bob, I have to inform you that your carriage list is VERY out of date: https://www.ideastream.org/programs/weekend-radio/carriage-list Look at that - still dated 2017!!! There are bound to be changes over a 5-year period, no matter what. Please have Carmelita or someone get it up to date.

We missed our Saturday night chances on WCLV and KUCO, so were planning on getting it at noon CDT Sunday on WUOT which we have done before as a backup. But it`s gone. Not on their schedule anytime either, now This American Life. Surely affiliates are obliged at least as a courtesy to notify the program when it is canceled (or added). But this can hardly be relied upon, as I have found in keeping track of stations carrying my own program, and when.

Another source would be great except it is not kept up to date either: First you are prompted to set up your preferred timezone: http://publicradiofan.com/cgibin/program.pl?programid=682

I have looked for other chances in the rest of Sunday and the only one I can find, still showing on own schedule, is KTXK Lubbock, 6 pm CDT -- (vs 60 Minutes on TV). I do NOT find W.R. on the current skeds of WBAA, WSND, WNMU, KVLU, KEDM!

I have not investigated the other Saturday stations, as it`s too late to hear this week`s program there should they exist.

It`s a shame that such a great show has been dropped by several stations. Hope you will keep on keeping on anyway. You might also consider availablizing it on demand, or podcast via WCLV site.

Best wishes, Glenn Hauser, Enid OK`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 15 at 0615, NO signal from R. Vanuatu on 3 x 3945. I had been checking it every night but did not do so on May 14 when this was later reported, so our third-harmonic spree suspends:

```Radio Vanuatu seems to be out of the air today 14-05 --- Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain: VANUATU, Radio Vanuatu, Port Vila seems to be out of the air today. Not even carrier heard on 7260 at 0550 and not even carrier heard on 11835 from 0600. Also checked via SDR Kiwi remote receiver in New Zealand, no signal on 3945, 5040, 7260 and 11835`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 28438 USB, May 14 at 2148, weak ham; and then on 28465 USB, another calling CQ 10, but nothing heard on either next few minutes, fadeouts? I mention merely to remind that 10m even seeming dead can pass thru a few signals if sought. However, DXMAPS shows a great many N/S paths, TE contacts. These probably were from South America (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report despatched at 1940 UT May 15

Media & Tech - 15/05/2022

WBCQ R Angela moving from 4790 to 5130

Over the next several days, WBCQ's Radio Angela will be migrating from 4790 kHz to a previous WBCQ frequency, 5130 kHz. WBCQ hopes to maintain the same coverage area with this move, perhaps even slightly greater in the US and Canada as west coast CODAR will no longer be a factor. During the week of May 16-22, listeners might want to check both frequencies during broadcast hours (typically 0200-04xx UTC).

A cuore aperto: Radiomarelli 10A05 (1947)

Avevo detto che avrei presentato un accessorio radio molto particolare ma non ho avuto il tempo di rimetterlo in funzione e così, per proseguire con le radio MARELLI, ho pensato di mostrare proprio il diretto discendente della 8A05 illustrata la scorsa settimana.

LOGO RADIOMARELLI OCCHIO MAGICO 6E5 04 SCALA PARLANTE LUNGHE - MEDIE E TROPICALI ONDE CORTE 31 - 13 METRI

Presentato sul mercato per la stagione 1947/1948, il MARELLI 10A05 è un apparecchio dal design completamente rinnovato e per nulla somigliante al classico "fagiolo", tipico apparecchio del dopoguerra. Il circuito è classicamente supereterodina 5 valvole più indicatore di sintonia 6E5: 6SA7 convertitrice, 6NK7 amplificatrice di MF, 6Q7 amplificatrice di bf, detector e agc, 6V6 amplificatrice finale di BF e 5Y3 raddrizzatrice.

VOLUME INTERRUTTORE E COMANDO TONO ALTO MEDIO E BASSO COMMUTATORE GAMMA
SINTONIA INDICATORE DI SINTONIA TELAIO  MATRICOLA

Il valore di media frequenza è 455 Khz e proprio sulla amplificazione di MF è il caso di spendere qualche parola in più: come detto poc'anzi, la valvola amplificatrice di MF è una 6NK7 e non la classica 6K7 e questo è dovuto ad un motivo legato alla necessità di avere una buona amplificazione del segnale ma non volendo aggiungere una valvola in alta frequenza e tantomeno spingere troppo l'amplificazione della valvola convertitrice per non introdurre rumore di fondo, i progettisti pensarono di impiegare il pentodo 6NK7 che, rispetto alla classica 6K7 ha pendenza più ripida ed un coefficiente di amplificazione maggiore.

MARCA - MODELLO E DISPOSIZIONE VALVOLE TALLONCINO GARANZIA INDICAZIONI E RACCOMANDAZIONI
ALIMENTATORE E RADDRIZZATRICE INGRESSO FONOGRAFICO INGRESSO ANTENNA E PRESA DI TERRA 

Le gamme coperte sono ben sette; onde lunghe da 1000 a 2000 metri, onde medie da 180 a 600 metri, onde "tropicali" (definizione utilizzata in quegli anni) da 40 a 110 metri e poi le onde corte con le bande dei 31, 25, 19, 16 e 13 metri.

CONDENSATORE VARIABILE CIRCUITO DI AEREO - FILTRO DI INGRESSO - COMPENSATORI TARATURA PER AEREO INTERSTADIO ED OSCILLATORE 

La scala parlante è divisa in due settori separati che riportano, sul lato destro le gamme di onde corte e sul sinistro, onde lunghe, medie e tropicali. I comandi sono tutti sul pannello frontale e comprendono volume, interruttore e tono, commutatore di gamma e sintonia che in questo apparecchio è tornata ad impiegare il tipico condensatore variabile a doppia sezione (aereo ed oscillatore).

TELAIO ESTRATTO CONNETTORE OCTAL PER ALIMENTAZIONE ED USCITA BF INTERRUTTORE DI ACCENSIONE
TELAIO - FRONTALE - ...VALVOLE FIVRE... ELETTROLITICO ORIGINALE 

La visualizzazione della gamma prescelta è ottenuta tramite un diaframma trasparente, retroilluminato, che è messo in movimento tramite un sistema a funicella e puleggia, solidale con il perno del commutatore e che rende visibile la gamma tramite una finestrella sulla scala parlante.

SENZA VALVOLE LATO COMPONENTI IMPEDENZA AF
COMMUTATORE TONO E COMPONENTI ORIGINALI ANCORA COMPONENTI ORIGINALI COMMUTATORE TONO - COMMUTAZIONE CIRCUITO DI PLACCA - 

Il controllo di tono è affidato ad una serie di condensatori e resistenze posti nel circuito di placca della finale di BF e che, tramite un commutatore, vengono inclusi o esclusi dal circuito stesso, determinando la variazione di tonalità. L'indicatore di sintonia è una 6E5 con zoccolo americano pre octal e questo ci fa pensare a rimanenze di magazzino o a difficile reperibilità di valvole dato che la 6E5 risale alla metà degli anni 30 e cioè, a circa 10 anni prima.

CONDENSATORI MARELLI STADIO DI ALTA FREQUENZA BOBINE ONDE LUNGHE ED ONDE MEDIE
BOBINE ONDE DA 110 A 25 METRI BOBINA 16 METRI BOBINA 13 METRI 

Sul retro si trovano le prese di antenna e terra e l'ingresso fonografico; il telaio è montato inclinato e viene facilmente estratto tramite un semplice sistema a slitta che ne rende molto agevole l'estrazione dal mobile. Altra prerogativa di questo apparecchio è lo stadio ad alta frequenza, costruito molto bene, con bobine  raggruppate a seconda delle gamme  e schermate tra di loro tramite schermi metallici saldati al telaio, il commutatore è a 4 sezioni, ognuna all'interno di una schermatura, esistono ben due trappole anti interferenze e viene fatto uso di compensatori sia di precisione che ceramici per ogni singolo stadio, gli stessi che troviamo nel lussuosissimo modello 8A28, del 1940.

COMPENSATORI DI PRECISIONE SEZIONE AEREO - COMMUTATORE - SEZIONE INTERSTADIO
COMMUTAZIONE ONDE CORTISSIME TARATURE - COMPENSATORI CERAMICI OSCILLATORE LOCALE - COMPENSATORE DI PRECISIONE -

Gli avvolgimenti sono eseguiti con rame argentato ed ogni bobina è realizzata in bakelite segno, questo, del voler realizzare un buon ricevitore, con un valido gruppo di alta frequenza, realizzato con criteri professionali. I componenti sono forse il tallone di Achille di questo apparecchio poiché molti di essi risalgono al periodo prebellico e quindi montati già vecchi, a parte i condensatori a mica utilizzati nell'alta frequenza, costruiti all'epoca del nostro apparecchio.

ALTOPARLANTE E FILTRO TENSIONE ANODICA RESISTENZA PER CADUTA DI TENSIONE TRASFORMATORE DI USCITA BF

Comunque, il 90% dei componenti è ancora originale e funzionante e rimarrà al suo posto. La costruzione è ben fatta, razionale e solida, cablaggio e disposizione dei componenti sono razionali e funzionali; il trasformatore di alimentazione con la raddrizzatrice si trovano sul fondo del mobiletto, lontano dal telaio per evitare ronzio indotto ed il collegamento al telaio è ottenuto tramite un cordone munito di connettore octal. Il cambio tensioni adatta l'apparecchio ad ogni possibile rete, partendo, pensate, da 85 volts!! L'altoparlante è ormai soltanto dinamico e l'impedenza di filtro è ottenuta con una parte dell'avvolgimento del trasformatore di uscita.

CONO ALTOPARLANTE ESTRAZIONE TELAIO - SISTEMA A SLITTA - 

All'atto della ricezione, il nostro MARELLI 10A05 si comporta molto bene; è selettivo e sensibile con buona resa audio, grazie all'efficiente 6V6 ed al filtro di tonalità, ben progettato. Sulle corte non ha problemi di intermodulazione ed anche sulle frequenze più elevate, la sua sensibilità è più che buona. Spero e speriamo che questo particolare MARELLI sia stato di interesse per tutti gli amici appassionati.
