Glenn Hauser logs July 31, 2022

** CANADA. 284 MCW kHz, July 31 at 0635 UT, dash and QD, 500-watt ND beacon at The Pas, Manitoba, is JBA vs storm and line noise levels. Pleased to hear it but nothing else from Canada, nor any USA beyond OK. 1956 km = 1215 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, July 31 at 0621, RHC English S7/S9 but very suptorted, barely recognizable // big 6165, only other English still on air, while 5040 remains but in Spanish. 11670 is supposed to be in Spanish only and much earlier in evening. From time to time it shows like this in English. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13700, Sunday July 31 at 1501, RHC is still on as weekly Esperanto opens, but cut off by 1503 as meanwhile I have retuned to 11760 where sign-on continues to allege this frequency only, ignorant of weaker // 15140, and even weaker carrier still on 15230 by 1505. Also stuck on winter timings as if at 1600 UT instead of 1500, as well as 0800 on 6100 instead of 0700 when it`s usually missing anyway; and 2330 or was it 2230 on 15730. Io ĉiam misas ĉe RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13628 & 13772 approx., July 31 at 1430, RHC spurblobs out of 13700 AM transmitter. F# tone JBA but no readable program modulation. Lower one louder than upper one. By 1457 have shifted slightly to peak circa 13629 & 13771. 13629 has het from 13630 broadcaster, listed as from 1500, CRI English via Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of imperialist ChiCom re-education, slave labor, even genocide against Uyghurs and other Moslems. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. 6184.991, via UTwente, July 31 at 1901, ``Radio Classic Sunday`` several IDs in English, rock, Dutch announcements. This is why FRSH said it would not be on 6185 this week, but last and next week.

Messy situation as presumed FRSH is on 7700.089 at S8/S9, 1907 giving address in Netherlands; should be // 5800 but unseems, and then 1908 two signals are equally colliding; so someone will have to shift off like last Sunday. No, 1923 recheck, still head-to-head. Manuel Méndez says FRSH is on 5790.3, so must be *two others* on 5800. At 1946, UTWente lox onto music on 5790.215.

Anyhow, it`s all rock music, and I would rather listen to `With Heart & Voice` in $tereo on WYSU HD2 stream as usual this hour on Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 515 MCW kHz, July 31 at 1428 UT, PN, 25-watt ND beacon at PoNca City, is off. Had been reliably on for weeks and audible day and night as strongest beacon, even moreso than 341 EI EnId, 350 RG OKC which are reconfirmed on now; also Kansans 332 IC wIChita, 395 CA 25 watts at Newton/Harvs are JBA; and 255 SW StillWater OK is still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. (7730), July 31 at 0500, missed checking UR1 via WRMI for `Ukraine: Security Issue` in English so monitored later via: including: Russia should be declared a sponsor of terrorism, for mass murder of POWs. Operation to rescue children in Donetsk region. Missile destroys school in Kharkiv. Most Ukrainians in occupied areas refuse to receive Russian passports prior to sham referendum. Pope Francis still plans to visit Ukraine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2149 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday July 31 at 0331 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, Wentzville MO, about 17 minutes into so started circa 0314; S9+20 vs storm noise level, but quite readable direct, where my receiver is a lot better than the closest active KiwiSDRs in TN, IL, IA, barely detecting a carrier.

** U S A. 9330.027, July 31 at 1506, WLCR via WBCQ in English, S9+10/20. Larry Will explains: ``Hi Glenn, WBCQ tells me that the superstition's R-420 transmitter is online, but part of the driver circuit has failed and is in Continental's hands for rebuilding and/or replacement. In the meantime they are using an alternative driver, which explains the slight frequency offset you've observed these past few weeks. If I learn anything else about the operation, I'll let you know. Regards, Lw`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, July 31 at 0620, I can tell RV is on with music on 3 x 3945, S7/S9 noisy. Ron Howard was hearing it a lot better until 0820, says topix included 42nd Independence Day July 30, World Hepatitis Day July 28 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
