Glenn Hauser logs June 10, 2022

** CHINA. 18900, June 10 at 0426, JBA carrier; and 18970 Chinese S2/S4. Only activity on this SWBC band, CNR1 jammers against Sound of Hope; in fact the only two listings in EiBi and Aoki. See also UNIDENTIFIED for many more on 17 & 21 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, June 10 at 0433, RHC Spanish, S9+30/40 but very suptorted. This transmitter always flanked by plus/minus 10 kHz spur carriers on 11840 & 11860, but now with supersignal fundamental, also detect further multiples of JBA spurs on: 11830 & 11870; and even weaker, 11820 & 11880. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9790, June 10 at 0438, S9+35/50 of dead air except for some hum, atop French direct from RFI, which surges when Cuba fades. 9790 is the CRI relay supposed to be in Cantonese 04-05 after English 03-04. Total failure! Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Even worse, 9790 can be left on past 0600 as recently (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, June 10 at 0443, RHC in wrong language, Spanish instead of English, leaving only 6000 for that. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 11790, June 10 at 0431, S7/S9 Swahili: RFI direct at 0430-0500, off the back to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MADAGASCAR. 11825, June 10 at 0432, God stuff in English, S8/S9, i.e. African Pathways Radio on MWV. See also UNIDENTIFIED [and non] below (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.5, June 10 at 2106 UT, country music on this CB channel, S9+25 steady and obviously local. Now some CBer has graduated to being a SWBC pirate; probably the same one previously blasting 27185v with carriers and tones. 2110 end of song and this turns out to be relay of local KOFM and is //103.1, as YL DJ starts interviewing Dan Schiedel [Shy-dell], exec director of United Way of NW Oklahoma, in Enid. Seems they are promoting a golf tournament. He used to be head of PBS in Oklahoma, OETA; then retired a few years ago, and we were surprised when he wound up in Enid. Still going with music at 2143. There was skip on busy CB channels 27025 & 27085, so KOFM relay may well have been DXable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 28, June 10 circa 1505 UT, some tropo enhancement on a few BAD VHF and UHF, channels, only this decoding as ION ``44`` which is: KTPX-TV Okmulgee. shows it 1000 kW ERP direxional NE for Tulsa market, hardly suitable for us, but commonly seen with a bit of trophelp (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SUDAN [non]. 11650, June 10 at 0430, S9/+20 African language, SSOB, then that wonderful ``Radio Dabanga`` singing ID. Via MADAGASCAR at 0430-0500, following Radio Tamazuj for Sudan South at 0330-0430; both 250 kW at 335 degrees, carrying on well to N America far beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28289.7 CW, June 10 at 2103, AL AL AL DE WJ5O/B WJ5O/B WJ5O/B, the OSOB as sporadic E is barely funxioning from Troy, Alabama. His list says power is only 2 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2141 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening Post, Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees. Dear Glenn: World of Radio, monitoring and confirming the latest for #2141, WRMI:

9395, static noise moderate levels, 0130, 0144, 0157 (45333), 0159, June 4 UTC 2022 [Sat]
9395, 0042, 0052, 0058 (45333), 9455, 0030, 0053, 0057 (45343), 0059, 9395, June 7 UTC 2022 [Tue]

WORLD OF RADIO 2142 monitoring: confirmed first SWBCs, UT Friday June 10 at 0130 on WRMIs: into Missouri SDR, 7730 S9+5/15, 5850 S9+20/35. Into Maryland SDR: 7730 S9+10/15; 5850 S9+5/20.

Also confirmed UT Friday June 10 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, fair but noisy into Missouri SDR.

Missed checking Fri June 10 at 1430 on WRMI 9955; anyone hear it?

Confirmed Friday June 10 from 1815.4 on IRRS SW via Bulgaria 7290; and AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, no 918 or 207. 7290 fair via NW Ireland SDR; 1323 via nearby Noale SDR, S9; both noisy.

Tuned in both earlier: 7290 from 1756 only with Chinese, 1800 timesignal, *1800:52 or so, IRRS cuts on with Feature Story News from Washington, in progress; while 1323 was playing soul music before 1800, then IRRS sign-on and FSN, including Spotlite segment at 1803-1804.5; 1805 more IRRS ID with the PO Box in Milano they otherwise say not to use; and no more News in Brief from the UN. This week it`s the start of TUC Radio, interview with Noam Chomsky about Ukraine, chopped off at 1815 for IRRS ID and then WOR. I am humbled by IRRS demonstrating that what I have to say is more important than Noam. Busy, I don`t track whether WOR play to completion at 1844, but it usually does unlike the filler fragments before and after.

[TUC Radio deserves a full slot of its own. A long-running US leftish show, stands for Time of Useful Consciousness. Read all about where that comes from, linx to podcasts including the Noam episode originally May 24: IIRC, it used to be on RFPI in Costa Rica, but I think not on WRMI or WBCQ, let alone 100% far-right gospel huxter stations. TUC emphasizes it`s *free* via Pacifica among other sources -- gh]

[As for FSN, I`m not sure I get their business model: lots of bureaux around the world but costs stations only $15 a month to get it: -- gh]

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much appreciated, thanks this week to generous Doug Brown, London ON, who sent a Florida US$ check to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA, and comments: ``Thanks, Glenn, for continuing to promote the medium of short wave radio at a time when many are saying the Internet had made SW obsolete. Online streaming is no more like radio than intravenous feeding is like fine dining. Authoritarian governments can control the Internet but they can`t control RF propagation``

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7730, Friday June 10 at 0500 I miss checking WRMI for UR1 relay with `Ukraine: Security Issue`; but tune in at 0604, there is Russian talk about Ukraine, certainly not R. Tirana as currently scheduled on System H, 7730, 0600-0630 on Mon/Tue/Thu/Fri/Sun; and on Wed only, RFPI presumably Russian and 0615 Power of the Word.

Also something new on Sat only at 0600-0630, `NBCWO`??? Nothing about that on the programming page or disgraced FB recently. It`s also Thu at 0830-0900 on 5850 & 7780, Sat 2330-2400 on 9395. Check it out? Never mind: broad search leads to: New Beginnings Church & World Outreach, from Indiana (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, June 10 at 0444, WTWW is S9+35/40 on fundamental but cannot detect usual parasitic spurs on 5072.1, 5097.9! What has Ted done with them? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 7260, June 10 at 0440, VR opening Ukrainian invoking JC, S5/S7; as scheduled 0440-0500 plus Russian at 0500-0530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
