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 Aoki is way out of date, still showing winter timing for English on 15140 at 2000-2100.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:

** 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)``

Last reports were on UT May 14:

``Distorted audio of WRNO Worldwide Radio in English on 7505 kHz via New Orleans, May 14 from 0430 on 7505 RNO 050 kW / 020 deg to ENAm English. Very good via SDR Frostburg MD, USA

Very good WRNO Worldwide Radio in Arabic on 7505 kHz via New Orleans, May 14 from 0733 on 7505 RNO 050 kW / 020 deg to ENAm Arabic Sce via SDR Milford PA, USA

Very good WRNO Worldwide Radio in Chinese on 7505 kHz via New Orleans, May 14 from 0842 on 7505 RNO 050 kW / 020 deg to ENAm Chinese via SDR Frostburg MD, USA.

``[WOR] WRNO 7505 missing --- For the 2nd night in a row, I note that WRNO is missing from their usual 7505 frequency. Walt`` Salmaniw, BC, 0218 UT May 16. This is not unusual: WRNO may disappear for nights or weeks at a time for no obvious reason: technical or operational? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
