Glenn Hauser logs June 18-19, 2022

** ANTARCTICA. Missed checking for LRA36 Sat June 18 around 1500. Did anyone hear it? Have seen no reports (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BRAZIL. 4924.835, June 18 at 0606, JBA carrier. A few hours earlier Manuel Méndez, Spain had reported R. Aparecida reactivated after 5 years --- but it used to be on 5035. Further monitoring by Rafael Rodríguez and MM concluded it`s really what you would expect on 4925v, reactivated R. Educação Rural, Tefé, Amazonas, but it was relaying R. Aparecida network overnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13020 & 13130, June 18 at 1436, CNR1 jammers vs SOH, both S6/S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, June 18 at 0610, RHC English with big humbuzz; clear on only other frequency 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, June 18 from *1459.8 c/on and soon s/on in English from V of Martyrs Korea and right into Dhivehi. Still going tho not checked lately, from secret site perhaps Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11770-, June 18 at 1657, still nothing from VON; SDR in Canary Islands gets only a JBA carrier averaging 0.5 Hz minus, presumably Urumqi, standard denunciation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Nearby beacon check June 18 at 1839 UT: 255 SW StillWater is still off; 515 PN PoNca City still on (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E DX paths get tantalizing close geographically and MUFilly for the FM band, but not quite, so anyhow I tune for 10 m hamband beacons, June 18 at 1841-1855 UT; then info looked up at WJ5O roster and

28209 CW, at 1841, VVV VVV VVV DE K7EMX/B repeated plus grid uncopied
28.2093 K7EMX C KEARNS, UTAH # 3W, VERTICAL New 5 August 2016
KEARNS, UT 84118 where I am surprised to see at the top a reference to me: ``Welcome, all ham appliance operatooors to my personal QRZ Biography. And special thanks to Glenn Hauser (World of Radio) of Enid OK, for his personal critique & review of my bio and notoriety in the nonsense of the hobby. Everyone wants to be a shining star in some regard these days. Just look at what Reality, Tabloid & Fox TV have done for the country. If the upward curve trend continues, we may all become cigar smoking, smartphone clutching, drooling, incessant, incontinent, knuckle-dragging, lying, dancing celebrities wearing pink tutu's. It's gonna be great I tell ya'.

Always be sure to click on the Greyed out & blocked YT videos on my Bio page. They are the most interesting, personally rewarding, redeeming and technically challenging to watch for hammies.``

He must be referring to what I wrote a biyear ago as in: ``Kearns is a SW suburb of SLC. He has the largest page I`ve ever run across: huge supply of stills and videos, many political and/or funny: Several mentions of his 6m beacon but unfound anything about 10m``

If you have a few hours to spare, I do recommend going thru his page. Despite being a Utahn, appears to be anti-Trump. I also logged him a couple times in June 2021.

28217.7 CW, at 1844, VVV VVV DE K4PAR/B repeated
816 Oak St

``K4PAR --- Kilo 4 Putnam Amateur Rabbit, Piedmont Amateur Radio Club, Eatonton Georgia. Greetings from K4PAR. We are located in in Brer Rabbits Briar Patch which is in Central Georgia near Eatonton GA and in Putnam County.`` I wonder if any of the 20 clubbers have any connexion with Eatonton`s sorry excuse for a radio station, WKVQ 1540v, 10 kW daytimer which was running 24h for months off-frequency?

28220.1 CW, at 1845, AA8HS - nothing but the call; all you need28.2203 AA8HS C TOLEDO, OHIO # 5W VERT J-POLE New 16 Jan 2019

``I have CW beacons on 28.2205 Mhz, 6 watt ERP and 50.079 20 watts ERP. These run during daylight hours and both are at about 50 feet with vertical orientation. The 10 meter beacon antenna is a j-pole made from 300 ohm ladder line and the 6 meter antenna a slim jim also made from ladder line. I also have an APRS digipeater in Toledo, Ohio.``

28271.2 CW, at 1849, N1KON/B EN - but rest of grid missing; already reported this month

28281 CW, at 1854, DE W8EH EM79 - already reported this month (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2143 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday June 18 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, S9+10/20 direct.

Not confirmed UT Saturday June 18 at 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela, because it is OFF the air; checked via Maryland and Rochester SDRs, no signal nor any of the other BCQs, 6160v, 7490v, 9330. Then checking Blitzortung, no lightning nearer to Monticello than Nova Scotia. Then I see this at 0206 from UB Tilford: ``FYI, Thor is throwing his hammer through the air up near Monticello, 5130 and 6160 are off tonight as a precaution. William "Bill" Tilford, Owner/Producer, Tilford Productions, LLC``

WOR 2143 confirmed Sat June 18 at 1600 on WRN webcast of N American service. Not a problem, but as always there is a pregnant pause between WRN`s intro and when I may start.

Also confirmed Saturday June 18 at 1929 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, VG and steady S9+5 groundwave into nearby SDR, at midpoint, so started early circa 1915.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 19 at 0049 the 0030 on WRMI 7780, JBA on caradio while I am mainly FM DXing.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 19 at 0324 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9/+10 into nearby SDR but storm crashes, about 8 minutes into so started circa 0316. Next:

For these noncommercial services, voluntary financial support is much appreciated, thanks this week to Joe Caberlin, VE1EJ, Ontario for some US$ to Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA

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

** U S A. 7730, June 18 at 0614, gospel huxter in English on WRMI: o yeah, the new NBCWO show on Sat only, leaving R. Tirana relay in English only for Mon/Tue/Thu/Fri/Sun. But is there a new program even produced on UT Sundays? Long ago when RT was a real SW station itself, they took Sundays off. I do wish that when committed to relay a daily or almost-daily service, it would not be bumped off part of the time; the other being Wed for RFPI Russian (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, June 18 at 1840 UT quick check, KLEY Wellington KS is still dead air. Also there at night QRMing KWKH with a fast SAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E MUFs exceed 140 MHz in spots over N America, but several chex June 18 don`t get any of it here - until after 0000 UT June 19, when I try the hot caradio again with vertical fender antenna only, no RDS and no internet access in real time. Even so I get a few signals here and there only in the bottom half of the FM band.

93.3 at 0009, OKC stn fighting with DX CCI: ad sounds like Cali Customs, then Firefly Festival; 0010 ``#1 hit music station, BoB? 93-3``. 0012 ad for - fortunately they finally spelt it. 0013 Carolina mentioned. 0014 National Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram ad on highway 17 in Jaxonville. ``We`re jackin` this in Jaxonville``, more adstring; something about a national music request line in from several states, 0016 finally playing a song. I can`t imagine why anyone would voluntarily listen to a huge string of hardsell ads first --- other than for IDing DX!

If one searches the WTFDA db on city only, spelt Jacksonville, wasting a lotta letters, one quickly learns that such a town exists not only in NC and FL but also TX, IL, AL, AR, OR, GA, each with one or many FM stations. But would you believe not a single one on 93.3? Must be a rimshotter so now I shall seek likely NCs or FLs nearby: None of the FLs nicknamed Bob. Here it is: WERO 93.3 WASHINGTON NC CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO BOB 93.3 100.0 kW 543.0 m --- however, Wash & Jax are about 60 miles apart hardly neighbors, but certainly within a common 100 kW coverage area. From Enid: 1873 km == 1164 miles. The Firefly music Festival might be a local reference? But it`s in Dover, Delaware, this September. There is no DE at all on 93.3

94.1 at 0017, Jaxonvil, North Carolina mentioned: must be this right up the coast at a little town of 900: WNBU 94.1 ORIENTAL NC GROOVIN OLDIES 94.1/97.9 11.0 kW 148.0 m --- 1915 km = 1190 mi

99.1 at 0018, K-LOVE. Oops, none in the Es area, rather KTLI 100 kW El Dorado KS, just NE of Wichita; had not noticed this before. Fades in and out quickly as if Es rather than dynamic 100-degree groundwave --- 182 km = 113 mi

96.3 at 0020, far-right extremist talk show, caller blasts Biden. Show maybe called John Perry? Ad for My Pillow. Must be this in PTA, the only full power in NC, and aptly called! WRHT 96.3 MOREHEAD CITY NC TALK 96.3 100.0 kW 150.0 m --- 1918 km = 1192 mi

95.1 at 0023, ad for something in Hempstead on highway 17; Kia in Jaxonvil; 0025 store in High Point; Kysol? Palms. 0026 Lenoir County Public Schools congrats to grads; ``The Beast in the East, 95.1 WRNS`` --- so now there is no doubt about the slogan, as already heard a few days ago, but still not in WTFDA db: WRNS-FM 95.1 KINSTON NC COUNTRY YOUR COUNTRY 95.1 WRNS 100.0 kW 459.0 m Online at However, Hempstead or similar spelling does not check out for Kinston area, nor a hwy 17: maybe something else, but surely not LINY. Lenoir County does contain Kinston --- 1831 km = 1138 mi

97.5 at 0027, K--- 97.5, but voiced by local DJ? 1-800 number. Community Tax, 1-800-375-7841. 0030 still adstring, Ox Car Care, 800-736-##73. No match or specific location for Community Tax and the 800#. Ochs car rental or other car co`s in Missouri, Pennsylvania. But a hit on K 97.5 in NC:: WQOK 97.5 CARRBORO NC USA HD URBAN CONTEMPORARY K 97.5, HIP HOP & R&B 50.0 kW 146.0 m --- 1686 km = 1048 mi

94.5 at 0033, national requests at K-MAC?? Maybe program name. Maybe: WCMS-FM 94.5 HATTERAS NC COUNTRY BIG 94.5 FM 100.0 kW 299.0 m --- 2001 km = 1243 mi.

At 0037 I belatedly install the big box fan in the back seat

92.1 at 0041, caterwauling, brief Es-like peak, whew

97.3 at 0044, silly puck game, Colorado Avalanche vs Tampa Bay somethings, appears to be ice hockey of all things; wild play-by-play from Ball Arena, which is in Denver. Score so far 3-0. WFLA 970 is home station of Tampa Lightning team; no 97.3 listed in its small network. If we are still in eastern NC, maybe altho not sports format, as this is a Big Deal Stanley Cup game: WMNX 97.3 WILMINGTON NC URBAN CONTEMPORARY COAST 97.3 100.0 kW 269.3 m --- 1821 km = 1132 mi

96.5 at 0052, about to quit as Es seem to have faded out, but among CCI here, some station invites visitors to its studio at 109 -- something street. Could just be one of the Okies? No, does not fit for KECO or KRAV. Could we get an ID just from that clue? No fit either for the only fullpower in NC, WFLB.

I do quit and start researching this report with AC in shack, but DXMAP is still showing lots of Es even on 2 meter band! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 18 at 0629, RV active tonight on 3 x 3945 with song at S9/+10, amazing signal for an accidental? harmonic. JBA carriers on the others, 7890 and 15780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
