Hauser
** CUBA. 11670, July 7 at 0046, S9+10/20 of dead air from RHC; 11800
is also S9+10/20 but just barely modulated; always flanked by
parasitic JBA spurs 11790 & 11810, no modulation audible as
occasionally can achieve. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Was still
tuned to 11670 after Spain check at 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690 VG > 12030 G > 11940 F >> 11670 no signal, Monday July
6 tune-in shortly after 2200, REE already playing music, but soon
Justin Coe about flamenco and jazz, the M/W/F English (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, July 6 at 2203, no signal from VOT English to us, nor
any NSS RTTY. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: not confirmed the
Monday July 6 at 1801 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria; did anyone hear it? I
was late tuning in after lunch at 1831 and by then it was dead air!
Carrier on vs RTTY 7291 warble and usual splatter from 7280 Vietnam,
but no modulation; nor at recheck 1853 during which the SW Report
should have partially aired. I fear that the first semihour was also
dead. As monitored via UTwente SDR, of course.

No luck either UT Tuesday July 7 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, this one off
the air, not even a JBA carrier, while the others on 7730 & 7570 were
inbooming. 7780 still AWOL at 0125 and past 0200. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 15610, July 6 at 2023 check; and 9385, July 7 at 0055 & 0323
chex, WEWN English still missing from both frequencies; but 5970
Spanish still extant at 0055 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860.012, July 7 at 0048, Qur`an and Cuban pulse
jamming adding up to S7-S9, must be Republic of Yemen Radio via one of
the Sa`udi sites. Seldom heard anymore, let alone in our mornings like
it used to be, of course blocked by Radio Martí at 14-22, and Cuban
jamming even prolonger. Not in HFCC A-20, nor anything from Sa`udi
Arabia. Aoki shows ROYR sked as 02-23, EiBi and WRTH Update as 02-22,
and this is after all the nightmiddle there. It might have expanded to
24h during Ramadan, but that`s long gone. Nothing else in any of them
until China/Tibet after 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

11170 JBAC; 11460 JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 6045, July 6 at 1339, nothing but noise jamming. Ron
Howard upon Asilomar State Beach, California, agrees: ``KOREA
NORTH/SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on 1119+, on July 6. Totally
blocked by super strong white noise jamming from N. Korea. The former
enjoyable reception of VOF has come to an end for the time being!``

I also have an unjammed? signal on 5990, presumably Echo of Hope,
South to North Korea as Ron also confirms (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.2, July 6 at 1346, JBA carrier presumed still
VOK knocked off frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: confirmed new time of 0030
UT Monday July 6 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+10/20, the only frequency on
285-degree azimuth from Okee, which crosses: Houston TX; just south of
Nogales, Sonora; right on Honolulu; Port Moresby; but plenty signal
here 30 degrees offbeam, second only to 315 on 7570, 5850. Just prior
at 0029.5, an Allen Graham in Quito ID and a fragment of Bob Zanotti
in Berne, all he gets out is his name before I interrupt him without
intending to.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 vs high
storm noise level almost exactly off the side of this 44-degree beam;
this time at 0129.5 a Rudy Espinal ID, and again a fragment of BZ,
why?

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, VG at Maine SDR

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 starting at 0301:45 on Area 51 via
WBCQ 5130, S9+10/20 including storm crashes.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 6 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG at TWR
Bonaire; good at Pardinho SP Brasil where slight jamming is audible
under. Next:

1800vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Bulgaria to WNW, 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. Re: ``15610, July 4 at 2010, zero signal from WEWN, not even
a JBA carrier which is normally there at minimum afternoons; while
15825 WWCR is S9+10/20; 15770 WRMI S7-S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)`` Ivo
Ivanov, Bulgaria replies:

``Also July 6 at 0500, zero signal from WEWN on 9385 kHz, scheduled
0000-0900 UT -- 73! Ivo Ivanov`` --- So their English transmitter(s)
down (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17815, Monday July 6 at 1452, open carrier S9/+10, quickly
turned off. Probably WHRI test; available 14-21 daily but normally
used only on Sundays --- or so I thought until checking

https://familybroadcastingcorporation.com/whr/whr-iframe-page/?search=Angel1
which claims `Angel 1` runs 17.815 every day at 19-22 except for a
switch to 17540 at 2105-2130, which I also find hard to believe;
exaggerated scheduling beyond axual SW usage? Mostly just Music with
IRN News on the hour, hardly worth the watts.

It also claims Angel 6 on 7385 not only most of the night, but all day
long! Don`t you believe it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [non]. 13820, Saturday July 4 at 1830, RTA International
via FRANCE, again with beepery, but no English, just Arabic, 1836 into
Spanish with lite French accent but also has to pronounce properly
names in Arabic. Via UTwente SDR. Richard Langley, NB reports there
was no English during entire 18-19 hours July 3 or 4:

``It seems they take pieces of the different language segments from
the programs on their Internet/FM/satellite broadcasts (in English,
for example):
https://www.radioalgerie.dz/rai/en/emissions/list

Some information (in English) about Radio Algérie Internationale:
https://www.radioalgerie.dz/rai/en/emissions/list%EF%BB%BF

The "funky" transmitter was used again today for the international
broadcast. -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, July 5 at 0607, RHC English, undermodulated S9 vs
CODAR, unlike fundamental 6100. Maybe Esperanto at 0700 was on 12200
too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** DJIBOUTI [non]. 17870, Sunday July 5 at 1401, no signal here from
LV de Djibouti as scheduled, but a poor/fair signal via UTwente,
spotchecked rest of hour, all talk in unknown language until 1458 a
bit of HOA vocal music and off 1459*. I notified the WOR iog of this
ASAP but at presstime only Ivo Ivanov replied at 1859:

``Good signal here, 1400 in Afar, 1415 in Somali, 1430 in French, 1445
in Arabic and 1457 again in Afar. Probably tx is Secretbrod [BULGARIA]
or per Aoki is Grigoriopol [PRIDNESTROVYE]``.

Website provides audio and texts of broadcasts in May, which were then
weekly, but none since 22 May:
https://lavoixdedjibouti.info/

Christian Ghibaudo reported on June 21 to bdxc-news: ``The latest
broadcast is on their Facebook page. It's June 19, there is a weekly
broadcast on Friday (Radio Vendredi). They broadcast again on
shortwave because the government of Djibouti has cut the Internet in
the country, making listening difficult. The association La Voix de
Djibouti is based in Paris. Regards from Sunny Nice, Christian
Ghibaudo.``

A week ago, Ivo reported to the WOR iog: ``BELGIUM(non) BRB Radio LVD
La Voix du Djibouti on 17870 kHz NOT ON AIR, June 28
1400-1500 on 17870 unknown kW / unknown to EaAf
Afar/Arabic/French/Somali Sunday. BRB Radio LVD La Voix du Djibouti
was on air 1st & 3rd Sun June 7 & 21, NOT EVERY Sun -- 73! Ivo
Ivanov`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, July 5 at 0613, VON manages to be on air today at
S9/+10 in presumed Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re my 1270 KRXO log now //107.9 translator, Chris KC5IIE,
Krug, Tulsa, replies: ``Oops! I stand corrected Glenn, 107.7 "The
Franchise" is in OKC, that explains why I don`t hear it. 107.9 is the
FM outlet for 1270 KRXO, it is simulcasting their programming. Sorry
for the confusion, 73 and Happy 4th!`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U K [non]. 12030, July 5 at 0606, news in French, whence? BBC
sounder. Why not Ascension? This is via USAGM SAO TOME at 0600-0629,
and modulated today unlike June 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. ``Hello Glenn, Happy 4th of July, Based on SDR trolling and
some listener check-ins, the WBCQ 4th of July in the Park should have
done OK near you although there was some storm activity in parts of
the region. The next special will be Labor Day, again a multi-program
effort. Although I am serving as cat-herder as Uncle Bill, the larger
purpose is to showcase WBCQ's music programs generally, and I hope
that the other programs (Marion's Attic, Behavior Night, Lost Discs,
Rock Wave and others) also attract new listeners, and perhaps this
might even inspire some aspiring radio host to start a new program as
well. At a minimum, we hope to serve as a reminder that music on
licensed broadcast shortwave (not just pirates) is very much alive.
Best, William "Bill" Tilford, Owner/Producer, Tilford Productions,
LLC`` 0222 UT July 5. My reply:

``Hi Bill, Enjoyed it. Since I was at the computer instead of the SW
radio, I could not resist listening via the WBCQ stream. I am ashamed?
Anyhow some of it was in $ tereo and the scratches were clearer, hi. As
you know, SW from `BCQ is not the best here, even without storms, and
especially without 500 kW. In scheduling, you might want to consider
possible competition from --- TV, as PBS, CNN and NBC were all
starting their 4OJ specials at same time. Your fireworx were hard to
see``

We proudly flew the American Flag all day (as well as on Flag Day)
until sunset; the only one visible in our neighborhood. (There used to
be a constant Confederate flag a block south, but maybe it wore out).
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15610, July 4 at 2010, zero signal from WEWN, not even a JBA
carrier which is normally there at minimum afternoons; while 15825
WWCR is S9+10/20; 15770 WRMI S7-S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 93.1, July 5 at 1823 UT, ``Detroit`s New Country 93-1``
briefly over CCI from KS. WTFDA FM Database:
``WDRQ 93.1 DETROIT MI 26.5 kW H&V, 204.0 m HAAT, 42-28-16 83-12-03 HD
COUNTRY NEW COUNTRY 93.1`` 1433 km = 890 stmi city-to-Enid

Andy Robins, Kalamazoo, was getting 10m beacons from all over,
including OK, 18-19 UT. Sporadic E MUF was way above 100 MHz in spots,
so I have been DXing in two sessions before and after lunch, but
little to show for it, mainly traces of DX CCI to fringe semi-open
frequencies. Quit at 1832. unIDs include:
1732, 92.1 mentions Hagerstown, likely MD or IN, but none right there
1734, 106.7, CCI to OK Spanish
1739, 95.3, CCI to KOKC translator
1744, 93.1, trace of Spanish CCI to KS
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** ZAMBIA. 11680, Sunday July 5 at 0600, AWR Wavescan #593 via VOHA,
good S9, another episode about early radio in New Hebrides/Vanuatu
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27385-LSB, July 4 around 2000, very active freebander
channel, in English, yet no beacons audible above 28200 --- so sharp
Es MUF cutoff between them ATM? BTW, why does everyone on CB speak
with an exaggerated GOB Southern accent; required? (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, July 4 at 0543, RTA, Arabic via FRANCE with
the self-QRMing beeping Issoudun transmitter. BTW, that was also
applied to 13820 during the July 2 English segment around 1830; but
you never know which transmitter will be in use at which time on which
frequency of RTA, RFI, or some other relay, from one day to the next
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 4 at 1357: 13160 S4; 12820 JBA
carrier; 12800 S9 in Chinese.

WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, July 3 at 1409, JBA talk here, presumed 2 x 6000 RHC,
which quickly checked is still on and barely audible, but 12000 gone
at 1410*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, July 3 at 1415, RHC is absent when this is supposed to
be on; 15230 is on but S9-S7 of dead air, or JBM? Something`s always
wrong at RHC. July 4 at 1400 both are on and modulating, VP (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, July 4 at 0547, RHC English at S5-S9 vs CODAR, quite
audible but not as big as last time on 2 x 6100. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.2, July 4 at 1429, JBA carrier from presumed VOK
still way off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, July 3 at 0606, VON is gone again from both
possible frequencies. Ditto July 4 at 0558 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5890, July 4 at 0544, Brother HyStairical is
back now that WWCR-4 has been repaired and reactivated; see also USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, July 3 at 2230, VOT, English to NAm
confirmed active today via KiwiSDR Pardinho SP Brasil which I happened
to have just checked for WOR/WRMI; but with heavy splash from much
bigger signal on 9820; at first thought it might be SP`s local R 9 de
Julho, 9818v, but in Chinese, so HFCC as CNR, 150 kW, 290 degrees from
Xi`an; specifically CNR2 per Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28281-CW, July 3 at 1420, beacon ID W8E? copied, probably
this which fits with another letter, from WJ5O roster:
``28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL``

Sporadic E; in the previous minute also had one on 28205; and on 28255
a K6##, but none listed around there.

28280-CW, July 3 at 1424, dash and ``DE K5AB ... CENTRAL TEXAS...``
also heard a few days ago, now VG at peaks:
``28.280 K5AB C GOLDTHWAITE, TEXAS # 50W, GP VERTICAL Power increase 5
May 16``
Lots of hets on CB, and WWCR 15825 & 13845 also Es-enhanced (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring: confirmed first WRMI airing,
Friday July 3 at 2200 on 9955: fair at TWR Bonaire & DR SDRs; better
to good at Pardinho SP Brasil.

Also confirmed, UT Sat July 4 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5800 VG S9+30/40
direct, fair at Maine SDR; 7780, JBA direct with high storm noise
level (HSNL), VG at Maine; 5010 JBA direct HSNL, poor at Maine, the

** U S A. 7490v, 6160v, 5130v, UT Sat July 4 after 0000, for AAAWWW,
these WBCQs are detectable, very poor signals with storm noise; all I
hear at a quick check is Angela overmodulating an opinion on current
events.

Has been repeating 24 hours later on 7490v at least, but not this
week, as UT Sun July 5 at 0000-0100 is when Uncle Bill`s
much-publicized 4th of July musical special is due, on 7490+v and
6159.9v.

Unfortunately simultaneously with `A Capitol Fourth` on PBS-TV, but
repeated a sesquihour later at least on OETA; and CNN`s 4OJ special at
0000-0400 UT, not to mention countless local events, including Enid,
where the Enid Symphony Orchestra is barreling ahead with its
traditional performance at Meadowlake Park despite the risks; people
are encouraged to spread out as there is plenty of space around the
lake, but in best of times getting in and out is problematic, e.g.
avoiding those burning poison gas, i.e. smokers who think it`s OK as
long as it`s outside; and parking is a nightmare.

I urged conductor Doug Newell to reconsider; what about the musicians
crammed under the canopy? The windy ones at least cannot be masked.
How about recording and/or broadcasting it? He says they don`t have
the rights to do so, which would be an additional expense.

The concert is always free to the public, underwritten this year by
Security National Bank. Starts around 0130 UT after a full day
schedule of other risky events at the Park, and to accompany fireworx
circa 0230 when it`s finally darkening.

To avoid the hassles, the past few years we have been attending
instead dress rehearsals at 4 pm Saturday back in Symphony Center, but
not this year in that enclosed and possibly crowded venue. The
fireworx can of course be seen from a considerable distance away, but
the music inaudible. Years before I had tried to get them to employ a
Part 15 FM transmitter for better sound than over the loudspeakers,
and maybe audible just outside the park in cars. Nix.

ESO apparently is itching to get going again with no performances
since March, the final scheduled concert of the year, an all-Beethoven
bash in April for season subscribers only, postponed. BTW, there
aren`t enough local musicians to form an orchestra, so ESO has to draw
in others from elsewhere in OK. As a 51-K city, we are lucky to have
it and hope all of them survive (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, July 3 at 2044, NO signal from WRMI-9 when RFPI is
scheduled on Fridays; normally a JBA carrier at least; while 15825
WWCR & 15610 WEWN do now achieve that much (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7385, July 4 at 0236, this WHRI is now squealing, like 7315
VOV relay previously; now 7315 is also on in English not // gospel
huxters, and also squealing.

9825, July 4 at 0555, WHRI squealing here too with g.h., maybe one of
same transmitters as earlier on 7 MHz. Haven`t they noticed in Cypress
Creek, Furman, Noblesville or South Bend?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, July 4 at 0239, WWCR-4 is back on, non-TOM during this
hour, following several days off for repairs. Day frequency 9980 also
resumed at 1654 check, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also SOUTH
CAROLINA [non]

UNIDENTIFIED. 12670.0-USB, July 4 at 1359, 2-way in Spanish, one of
them screaming, encountered as I bandscan for CNR1 jammers. Per
Klingenfuss 2002y, this was not a ship SSB frequency, but WNU New
Orleans was in CW/DIG on 12670.4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ALGERIA [non]. 13820, July 2 at 1828, RTA via FRANCE starts ENGLISH
segment, YL historical artistic talk about a painter whose name I
never catch, continuous music background. 1836 into another feature,
`Destination: Algeria` tourist talk by OM about the sights in the
northeast, then northwest; 1841 into Spanish, weekly Latin American
correspondent in Bs. As. about the COVID-19 situation especially in
Brasil. Tnx to Pedro Sedano, Spain, who tipped us on the WOR iogroup
that this hour only carries the International domestic network, not
just Arabic/Qur`an and some French but also English circa 1830 and
Spanish like this. Times could be 1 minute off as I recorded during
significantly home-grown salad lunch and did not listen until later.

AFAWK, this is the only time for English on SW, other than some
scattered IDs. Monitored here VG via UTwente SDR; didn`t try direct
but probably would hear more Cuban jamming against no Martí than RTA.
This hour on one frequency only. Also reported by Alan Roe, UK, and
via UTw, Richard Langley, NB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2041)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 2 at 1339: 14990 VP; 13160 two
signals; 1130 Chinese S5-S7; 12500 & 11440 JBA carriers.

At 1346: 11150 music, 11120 JBA, 11100 & 10920 JBA carriers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 9490.024, July 3 at 0150, Radio República is VG
S9+20/30 with the jamming underneath JBA for a change. Mentions ``Cuba
libre``, ending newscast with rooster crow. Caught my attention in
bandscan since this far off-frequency, unusual for Issoudun if FRANCE
still be the site with RMI the go-between broker rather than just
putting it on much closer Okeechobee. Europe is hot tonight, 9420
Greece also inbooming with its musical alternative (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.201, July 2 at 1337, VOK exactly same remeasured
off-frequency for second day in a row, S3-S5, usual syrupy choral
music from paradise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2041)

** OKLAHOMA. Re: 1270 KRXO in Tulsa [now in Spanish // 107.9]. Yes
Glenn, KRXO abruptly changed their format a few weeks ago. "The
Franchise" laid off their main morning hosts early in the Pandemic, I
wondered then if the handwriting was on the wall... 107.7 is off the
air, 73 (Chris KC5IIE Krug, Tulsa, OK, July 2, WOR iog)

Chris, OK, but what do you mean by ``107.7 is off the air?`` The only
107.7 in OK is the original KRXO-FM in OKC, still very much on the air
as The Franchise, in English as I am hearing it now (Glenn, Enid, 1459
UT July 2, WOR)

** U S A. 28263-, July 2 at 1424, one 10m beacon is JBA, VVV DE W4JPL
BCN ... LIB ... 05. No /B suffix, just space, BCN. Partial msg copied
after multiple repeats. WJ5O roster shows:
``28.2635 W4JPL C LIBERTY NORTH CAROLINA # 4W, 5/8 VERTICAL``
And QRZ.com:
``W4JPL USA flag USA, JOHN P LLOYD, LIBERTY, NC 27298 USA``
with no further info. Liberty is SE of Greensboro on the way to Siler
City, or forming an equilateral triangle with Greensboro and
Burlington. I logged it as on the minus side of 28263 but listed on
plus side; one of us is mistaken. Very briefly another beacon
audiblized slightly higher in frequency. No Es MUF into FM today;
openings should taper off as we get into July but there could still be
some goodies if we can catch them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9980 during the day July 2, and 5890 at night, checked 0420
UT July 3, WWCR-4 still off the air depriving us of extra BS. John
Jurasek found an explanation on the website:

``WWCR is working on a major transmitter repair. Additionally, WWCR
streams may not be playing scheduled content. . . All parts needed to
complete this project should be received by July 3. WWCR staff and
management appreciate your patience during this time.``

Program skeds have now been updated as of July 1, and WWCR-4 still
shows 24/7 on 9980/7520/5890, so enjoy the fresh air while we can!
