Glenn Hauser logs May 13, 2022

** CHINA [non?]. 15555, May 13 at 2305, JBA AM with talk, music. Aoki shows besides WJHR USB until 2200, the only other 15555s are CNR1 jamming and RFA Chinese via SAIPAN, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, May 13 at 0616, RHC English here only, no other frequencies found on in 5, 6, 9, 11 or 13 MHz bands. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, May 13 at 2303, RHC English S9/+10 but just barely modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE [and non]. 9420.002, Fri May 13 at 1625, ERT with great Greek music and announcements, VG S9+25/35 into UTwente. If China is on too, totally overridden. But chopped off air abruptly at 1655* uncovering CNR and something else making a medium SAH. This is also playing a nice song which could be mistaken for Greek. Only scheduled now until 1805 is CNR13 in Uighur via Lingshi 725 site, which is between Beijing and Xi`an. On its curtailed 1230-1700v UT schedule weekdays only, we can no longer hear VOG well direct in our evenings. Is on borrowed? time until another possible termination at Mayend (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, May 13 at 1529, V of Martyrs Korea, Maldives service in Dhivehi, runs a bit late so s/off in English not until 1530.0, overlapping Vatican in Arabic until about 1530.4. Into S India SDR, was S9+10/20 from secret site, then VR weaker at S7/S9 and noisy.

``Dhivehi is an Indo-Aryan language derived from the Sinhalese language of Sri Lanka. Despite the countries' close proximity to one another, Maldivians and Sri Lankans do not always understand each other.`` - Wikipedia? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 13 at 0500-0507, UR1 via WRMI, immediately into `Ukraine: Security Issue` in English with the well-spoken YL -- but marred by too much Ukrainian clips to voice over, or at times, under. VG into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2138 monitoring: confirmed Friday May 13 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S9 with deep fades to S3 direct, no jamming audible.

NOT confirmed Friday May 13 at 1815 on IRRS 7290, nor AM Italia 1323. Tuned in earlier at 1754, no signal on 7290 from Bulgaria into UTwente, and instead of *1800.9, it never came on! 1323 tuned in at 1806 just as synthyl ID in English as on 207, 918 and 1323 kHz - more info from and ``Have a good listening``. Then music fill, no Feature Story News or UN News as usual. Guess what, it is not on 207 or 918 now either into nearby Noale SDR, only 1323. But no WOR here either at 1815.5. Same canned ID repeated amid music loops at 1817, 1828, 1840. This operation is *so* uncoördinated.

Next airing of WOR 2138 however succeeds, on 1323 checked at 2056 and presumably from 2030, S9+13 steady, still no 918 or 207. I also check 1323 into UTwente where it`s JBA with CCI. Next:

** U S A. Re 9455, WRMI: ``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`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 13 at 1910-1920+ UT on caradio, dead air from KLEY Wellington KS. Had been holding up whenever occasionally checked since resuming mod Feb 20 after a long DA spell. 250 watt daytime, 1 watt, sure, nighttime. Need to check whether it again be on at night vs 50 kW KWKH, DA or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
