Glenn Hauser logs June 26-27, 2022

** BRAZIL. 9673.310V, June 27 circa 0130, RVM in Brazuguese preaching, S7/S9 and varying slightly downward as I try to measure it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13810, June 27 at 1511, Chinese and music, S7/S9 with LAH = low audible heterodyne. Hard to tell which one, or both, slightly off-frequency. Mainly CNR1 jammer, and maybe the music under talk be also from it; per Aoki at 15-17 vs RFA Chinese via Tajikistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 4765, June 27 at 0112, no signal from R. Progreso into Maryland SDR, supposedly *0030-0400*. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Interesting to look at the CODAR pattern on the waterfall around 4765 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. Finally my first FM DX of the season from the south, June 27 1830-2000 UT, including Puebla. To be fully researched and IDed by next report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 27184.5 AM, June 26 at 2206, S9 of country music, presumed the local Enid CBer again piratically relaying 103.1 KOFM. Skip DXers afar ought to hear this if there be sporadic E (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 26 at 2207, no signal from VOT direct for English to N America. Off or not propagating?

9830, June 27 at 2200 via UTwente, only a weak signal presumably China, until VOT pops on a bit late, S9+40 with some hum. 2224 repeating same ``weekly`` show about eye care, `Feeling Supreme: Healthy Life` as heard June 25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, June 27 at 1509, beacon K6FRC is JBA vs CODAR; sends callsign only over & over. Tuned across almost every morning and first time heard again since April 12; always near this hour. Is it just propagation, or not really running 24/7 as should any beacon?

This says it`s 13565.04, and look at all the others on this ISM band, only a few of which I have ever heard: K6FRC claims to run only 1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA.

``Operator of-
K6FRC/B 50.080 MHz.
K6FRC/B 28.300 MHz. [which I have also heard]
K6FRC 13.565 MHz. (Part 15 'HiFer')
Go to for K6FRC beacon locations.
Please mail your reception report or QSL to:

Paul Shinn
P.O. Box 175
Valley Springs, CA 95252

No S.A.S.E. required! It is a pleasure to respond to all mailed QSL cards and reception reports. Respect for tradition demands it.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2144 monitoring: confirmed Sunday June 26 from 2000.6 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, S9+20 into nearby Noale SDR. And not on 918 nor 207 kHz this time.

Also confirmed Sunday June 26 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+10/15 into one Athens GA SDR, S9/+5 into the other.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 27 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 and noisy into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 27 not starting until 0315.4 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 -57 Hz = 6159.943, as Johnny Lightning runs way over, until ``gotta go`` at 0314, plus dead air and WBCQ ID, then WOR, which played to 0344 conclusion, Hobart Radio International overlapping my closing; but at 0400 recheck, 6160- back to TOMBS // 5890 WWCR; so HRI was chopped short as a result of JL`s overage. Next:

2230 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed by Cuba]
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

** U S A. 9955, June 27 at 2208, this WRMI is just barely modulated unlike 9395 & 9455; glad I`m on 5950 instead at 2230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, UT Monday June 27 at 0007, via Georgia remote, WRMI with S Asian music fill, shortly into that beautiful `cello solo piece, i.e. Bach`s Suite #1 in G. Here`s a YoYoMa performance of it: which also leads to much more `cello including performances by one HAUSER, i.e. Stjepan Hauser from Croatia, no relation? In an alternate lifespan, I would love to have been a `cellist!

At 0028 recheck, back to S Asian music. But the point is, scheduled at this time is `Ham Radio Concepts`; what became of it? Nothing about it on the WRMI program page; was there ever? HRC may be the same thing as a podcast; a limited tutorial? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, June 27 at 0209, I sent this to Jeff White, WRMI: ``9455 splattering all over --- Jeff, You really have a problem with the 9455 transmitter. This evening in direct reception at 0125 it`s overmodulated/distorted on 9455 itself but also splattering, rather wiping out anything down to 9400 and still quite audible between the other big signals, 9395, 9330 and 9265, and still audible as low as 9200. However, not much like that fortunately on the plus side of 9455. Others have also reported this. 73, Glenn``

9455, June 27 at 1514, WRMI open carrier S5/S9 and off at 1516 uncovering JBA carrier from CRI Kunming as USAGM is no longer trying to share 9455. Guess WRMI is working on #5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, June 27 at 0115, WRNO concluding TV soundtrack of Billy Graham, BGEA until 0116; surprisingly ``mainstream``, not to mention, not surprisingly, deceased (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, June 27 at 2219 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is still on with 250 watts of dead air; and also at night vs KWKH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130-, UT Monday June 27 at 0200, WBCQ Radio Angela, `Concert Hall` with part 1 of 2 of Lehár`s operetta, `The Merry Widow`, English version. I don`t see any previews online of CH content, but next week know will start with the rest of it. A fun listen, lovely melodies, and some lyrix can be understood vs the noise level, S7/S9 into Maryland remote, where I`m running it in SAS = fake stereo. There are storms from AZ-NM-TX-LA then upward to PA. Offset fluxuates -23/-27 Hz = 5129.973 - 5129.977 kHz.

0339 brief poetry segment and UB says the same Lainie Petersen will be reading out Orwell`s `1984` from July serially for however long it takes, UT Saturdays at 0200-0230, followed at 0230-0300 by Greek Refuge, music in the wake of ERT`s termination of SW. Tonight before ending at 0400, a snippet of TMW in original German (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. A sporadic E FM DX opening brought stations from south Florida, June 27 from 1759 to about 1830 UT, some in Spanish, then lots of Mexicans until 2000. It will take a while to research and identify as many of these as possible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
