Glenn Hauser logs May 30-31, 2022

** CANADA. 3330 & 7850, May 31 at 0640, revived CHU is *still* announcing time *two hours slow* as ``4h,40m``, almost 16 hours after turned back on. At 1450, both 7850 & 14670 RCUSB too weak to copy direct. But at 1524 into Ottawa SDR, finally correct. As far as I could tell, however, the minute markers stayed correct and precise, so that`s something. Meanwhile, Richard Langley, NB, reports to the WOR iog, May 31 at 1104:

``Just got this message from the NRC technical officer after reporting the announced time error yesterday and asking about the off-air reason:

"Thank you for this, don't know why the time was 2 hours off. It is fixed now. The antennas were fine. The problem was the generator failed for a long time so everything shut down. Then we were not allowed access to the site until yesterday, they just opened the road where CHU is located this morning."``

And confirmed correct hour being announced monitoring 7850 kHz here in NB about 30 minutes ago (around 11:45 UTC). -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 15034 USB, May 31 at 1455, CHR Trenton Military, still nothing but ``no report received`` from: Calgary, Cold Lake, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and repeated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, May 31 at 2214, RHC is S9 but JBM, barely recognizable as scheduled French. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, May 31 at 0633, this is the only RHC English frequency remaining, S7/S9 but barely modulated and unusable; still below some hum but no buzz. Something`s always wrong at RHC. And it`s even weaker than 1-kW 6070 CFRX at S9+10 and amply modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. From June NZ DX Times: ``1640 KZLS Enid OK ident as “1640 and 1390, the New CTB Fox Sports.” “CTB” refers to ‘Chisholm Trail Broadcasting Company. (Matt Todd-OK via NRC)``

Ha, I avoid my locals so much that this was news to me. Indeed, KCRC 1390 // 1640 May 31 at 0430 during stupid BB game. 11:30 pm local, multi-inning, or western timezone? 1640 is running about 2 seconds behind 1390. Why bother such duplication? Well, 1640 gets into OKC day and night, not 1390. Inside Enid, 1390 is stronger.

A few weeks ago, the far-right ``Eagle`` talk format on 1640 KZLS replaced Bob music or whatever it was on co-owned 96.9, and they were running //. 96.9 KQOB ID only as ``The New Eagle, 96.9``, no mention of 1640, May 31 at 0430 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, May 30 at 2200, token English from REE previewed as something from Beirut, and author about power, smax of rerun, so I listen only to the initial news (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 31 at 0500-0506, YP1 via WRMI with `Ukraine: Security Issue`, tonight by the too-fast-talking guy. Not so good into Missouri SDR I happen to have running to the NW of FL, rather than the usual Maryland one onbeam to the NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2140 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday May 31 at 0030 on WRMIs into Missouri SDR; 9395 S9+5/10, 9455 S9+15/20. More treble in the 9395 modulation. Next:

** U S A. 15770, May 31 at 1947 late tune in to WRMI, world music fill already playing instead of VOA `Flashpoint: Ukraine`. Did it at least start airing today? Also chopped short yesterday and May 24, at least as I have not tried every day (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, May 30 at 2220 UT, KLEY Wellington KS still providing zero modulation. Had been dead air May 13-16 after a spell of sounds, but not rechecked lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5970, May 31 at 0632, DRM-like noise again and now covering 5965-5975 tho weakly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
