Logs
** CHINA [non]. 9580, May 27 at 0139, CRI relay via HABana is in Spanish instead of English! Talk about Colombian author Gabriel GarcÃa MÃrquez and his appreciation ``aquà en China``. Adjacent Albania relay on 9570 remains in CRI English. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, May 27 at 0152, RHC is in Spanish // 6060 etc., instead of English whose separate music maintains on 6000. Recheck at 0612, 6165 is now in English // 6060 and 6000, while 6100 is off. Something`s always wrong at RHC. See also CHINA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9535, May 27 at 1430, S4-S8 of dead air, obviously RHC. 15230 likewise, May 27 at 1442, dead air or JBM at S9, while 11760 and 13700 are OK. 17730 is also on and VP with music matching 11760. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, May 27 at 0613, VON is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6972-AM, May 27 at 0111, EZL music at S7-S5, 0120 more like jazz. The first of four active pirates I find bandscanning downward, and the weakest. They are out in force for the Memorial Day weekend. 0153, still weak music after some others have stopped. Also UNIDENTIFIED for this thread covering 0100-0230, but some getting a much stronger signal are impressed by the audio quality:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42903.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, May 27 at 0113, pirate music at S9+5; 0125 SSTV, 0128 off. Suspected Wolverine Radio and so confirmed by numerous logs here ranging 0022-0125, including captures of the SSTV image:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42899.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, May 27 at 0114, pirate music, soft jazz at S9+25, even stronger than 6950. 0119, this one emits SSTV, 0120 plays ``Ride of the Valkyries`` complete, 0125 seguà to more triumphal classical music; 0127 ``Heard it on the Grapevine``. 0130 more SSTV; 0132 music resumes; 0136 SSTV to 0140, seems to go off, but back with more to 0142 and nothing further. Also unID here but with SSTV captures showing it`s pro-Confederacy:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, May 27 at 0131, it`s John IDing for his ``VORW Radio International``, S5-S8 vs storm crashes, 0132 thanking pirate relay of his show last week on 6880 (so here it is again), greeting various reception reporters. Still on with VORW past 0154. It`s The Relay Station, which had been on as early as 2152 May 26 with other programming, and VORW from 0055:

including lots of SSTV images. TRS himself posted here:

[sic, unedited:] ``thanks gentleman !
i hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend !
i did my best to send out confirmation reports based on the time reported in this forum thread (https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42699.0.html) from 5/19 to everyone i could obtain an email address from, i hope i didnt make any errors since i did each one individually.
for those of you that did not get the confirmation report for 5/19 and wish to have one, you can send me an email at shortwavepirate@aol.com and i will make you one.
tonight's shows will be two "Stasi" shows and one VORW show as requested by the producers who created them, thanks to you !
edit 1: (im not sure how well the SSTV will work through AM due to phase issues caused by fade but i guess we will see)
edit 2: im currently having some slight power issues, line voltage has been dropping below 240VAC, down to 200VAC several times and hovering around 210VAC, seems to be an issue with the 7.2KV supply to the step-down transformer, kind of annoying watching the power fluctuate all over the place on the ACV-RMS needle meter.
edit 3: props and hats off to powerhouse Wolverine Radio ;)

** PHILIPPINES. 9275, May 27 at 1325, poor S2-S3 signal in Chinese, first day for FEBC ex-9380, and weaker than that had been, maybe just daily variation if on exactly same parameters as would be expected. Lowest 9 MHz frequency ever for Bocaue? Could be transmitter/antenna not tuning up optimally. 9380 now returned to AIR Aligarh exclusively, but nothing audible now, despite the scheduled 1200*-*1305 break being over (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9369.962, Sunday May 27 at 1326, new bigsig steady at S9+10 with African music, modulation slightly distorted, and occasional split-second dropouts; what in the world? Keeps going past 1400 with no announcements, let alone any ID. But it`s obviously WWRB reactivated on frequency last used for Brother Scare, and still registered available 13-24 UT, 100 kW at 45 degrees in English [sic], for CIRAF 4 and 9, i.e. Canada east of 90 degrees-west. Yeah, right where there are lots of Ugandans? This replaces 15240- which had not been heard for a few seeks, i.e. Radio Munansi. We had our doubts 15240 would reach Uganda, and even more so 9370 over a summer day-path, but it`s great into Oklahoma! Luganda talk finally starts at 1504. Music again at 1626 check. Note the offset of 9370- is very close to that of 15240- as previously measured. Presumably the only WWRB transmitter not demolished, so expect it Sat & Sun circa 1300-2100? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1931 monitoring: confirmed after 0200 UT Sunday May 27 on WRMI 7780, S9/S9+10 but only fair vs storm crashes. Also confirmed UT Sun May 27 at 0346 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, good S9+20, at Algeria/Antarctica --- oh, oh, that was last week`s #1930, at 1:23 into the file, not latest 1931. And 1931 did not air earlier, as ARRL was still running at 0326. Maybe it aired later? Should have checked, as WA0RCR was off last week for Hamvention, and playing 1931 now may have been a make-up for that. Next:
Sun 1900 WRMI 9395 to NNW
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400 WRMI webcast only
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1932?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1932?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun May 27 at 0553, WTWW-2 is on with a talkshow, something new. Guest believes there are bases on the moon and aliens have visited earth. Could it be the Hoagland show revived? No. Host soon says he is on ``5085 and additional SW frequency tonight, 15815, which is just smoakin` in other countries, just blasting in``. (Not here! Nothing as you would expect in the nightmiddle on 19m from Tennessee; a different site, Bulgaria, maybe?).

Guest is named Glen and before ToH break program ID as `Southern Talk at Midnight` with Dave Lewis(?). 0559 commercial for CVS Pharmacy beauty club! Then to rambling ham radio ads by Ted until 0603 music; 0606:45 program resumes with guest Glen S-something who has a bunch of books to push, a longtime author about aliens around us. Again plugs 15815 & 5085, host address dave@wtww.us so this show may axually originate at WTWW. And gives phone for call-ins as 615-680-8028, as I tune out and go to sleep.

What`s about this at the WTWW website? NOTHING, of course, just long-outdated program info at
http://wtww.us/pages/schedule.php
and on the homepage itself, still claiming to use 9930 with Dave Ramsey, etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15815, May 27 at 1439, however, *is* an unexpected and unregistered new frequency! for WTWW as IDed after ``In the Sweet Bye&Bye`` hymn, S9+20 = sporadic E boost, while neighbor 15825 WWCR is S9+20/30. Nothing in HFCC on 15815, not WTWW, not Bulgaria, not anything. Off at 1627 check and I think considerably earlier. John Figliozzi, NY was still hearing it at 1540, and Kai Ludwig, Germany at 1610, weaker than WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15760, May 27 at 1627, here`s WHRI with special broadcast of the holy Indianapolis 500, during commercials with zoom SFX. Race was scheduled to start at *1619, an exercise in futility, round and round and getting nowhere; meanwhile drivers, crew and spectators risking death or injury, a great American tradition.

15760 is registered available 14-22 UT, Sat/Sun extended to 24, 250 kW, 315 degrees across the USA toward CIRAFs 2 & 3 = Canada west of 90 degrees. Not sure, but I don`t think they have been using it much if at all. Yesterday I searched the WHR website for any info about the anticipated special and found absolutely nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370-, WWRB reactivated: see UGANDA [non]

UNIDENTIFIED. 9272.7-USB, May 27 at 0144, 2-way in Spanish, stronger one with noise and music in background (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 15400, May 25 at 2345, JBA S1 talk in unID language, almost the OSOB except for 15570 Chinese = Jamming or RFA Saipan; and 15610 WEWNglish. For 15400, Aoki/NDXC shows:

15400 2345-0015 AUS Reach Beyond Australia ( Bur Kununurra 12357
15400 2345-2400 AUS Reach Beyond Australia ( Bur Kununurra 46
15400 0000-0015 AUS Reach Beyond Australia ( Eng Kununurra 46

This is self-contradictory, as the missing Burmese days 4 and 6 in the first entry, ending earlier at 2400 on days 4 and 6, should become days 5 and 7 for the English segment across the 0000 UT transition in the third entry! But the first entry is ambiguous; do the day numbers refer to the start time or end time? Cannot be both.

More evidence that Au/As stations cannot be relied upon to report the correct UT days for their broadcasts matching the UT times.

Or, who knows, 4 and 6 could be correct after 0000, and 12357 wrong as local days before 2400 instead of 12467, i.e. previous days by UT, in which case the middle entry should be 3 and 5.

After figuring that out, I check how EiBi has this parsed differently:
15400 2345-2400 [daily] AUS Reach Beyond Australia BR MYA ku

mixing numbers with letters, or blanx if daily.

For Aoki, day 1 = Sunday, but for EiBi, day 1 = Monday. So for the Burmese segment at 0000-0015, Aoki has it on Sun-Mon-Tue-Thu-Sat.
EiBi has it on Mon-Tue-Thu-Sat-Sun, i.e. the same! Likewise, they both agree that the days for English at 0000-0015 are Wed & Fri.

But again, that implies that the shorter Burmese broadcasts ending at 2400 must not be on UT Wed and Fri, but on UT Tue & Thu, contrary to Aoki. Yes, it`s confusing, but you have to be explicit and consistent! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 7210-AM, May 25 at 2343, pop music in English S8-S5, but // 6175 as both are scheduled CRI Spanish via ALBANIA, 150 kW at 280 degrees. Per HFCC, Nelson Roig N1NR and his anti-Castro Cuban exile cohorts I was looking for, should have 7210-LSB to themselves from 0000 and all-night to 1100, unless Kolkata 0215-1215 listed be a minor problem. Aside from pro-Castro Cuban jhammers, of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non?]. 11610, May 26 at 1635, bandscanning up hits huge signal in Chinese song, S9+5 to peaks S9+20; worthy of MWV but its only Chinese hour on 11610 is 21-22; 1638 Chinese announcement, talk over music continues. This is the SSOB, more than 12160 WWCR, 11760 RHC, 11930 Cuban radio war, 12050 WEWN, 11710 North Korea, but not a bad signal from there. Sked at 16-17 only is RFA Chinese, 250 kW, 295 degrees via TINIAN and of course *jammed per Aoki/NDXC. I hear no trace of a second signal, but think CNR1 jamming more likely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11880, May 26 at 1641, soft song in Chinese, S1-S3 not // 11610. Sked is CRI Hakka, 500 kW, 252 degrees via Xi`an for CIRAF 53N and 57S, which means Zimbabwe and vicinity! Hakkan diaspora there? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11900, May 25 at 2351, RHC vs RHC, mixture of audios from 11950 with `Mesa Redonda` soundtrack, and mainstream RHC from 12000, i.e. leapfrog another 50 kHz lower. Modulation is rough on 12000; 11950 is also defective, overmodulated and squealing, so the sounds on 11900 are no better tho much weaker, managing only S1. Luckily for WEWN, no reverse `frog on 12050 can be heard to mar its own `Cara a Cara` show. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

The 11900 mix will not occur on weekends when 11950 is not on; but what about my Thu May 24 RHC log on 11900 at 0019? 11950 should also have been off after 0000, and I did not note then that it was on, causing speculation about how else 11900 could happen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9380, May 26 at 1249, English talk about Nazi Germany, Ephesians, the last day here for FEBC`s ``Chinese`` service; 1251 song in English about God, 1254 outro title as ``Love Is``, something ``to sing about``, then 1255 finally into Chinese talk by YL at S9-S7.

From May 27, the 10-16 UT FEBC Chinese sextahour is to QSY to 9275, uncovering All India Radio on 9380, where FEBC should never have moved to evacuate original 9430 for the so far imaginary but potentially vital IRDR service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11980.034, May 26 at 0527, poor S8-S5 talk in presumed TÃrkish past 0530+, an off-frequency rampant from Emirler. This is VOT, 04-06 UT on 310 degrees for western Europe, consequently also North America beyond on same azimuth. This transmission probably still runs the otherwise replaced legacy TRT IS before 0400. Maybe by midsummer this will hold up well enough to enjoy the music? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1931 monitoring: not confirmed Friday May 25 at 2333 on WBCQ 9330v, as BS continues. (This is the last time I am going to be reporting non-WOR on 9330, altho I may keep checking sporadically lest it reappear without notice, just as it disappeared without notice.)

Confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, May 26
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/05/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_26.html
0630-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, poor/weak``

6190-USB again at 1455 check via UTwente: JBA algo, presumably me;
confirmed by Alan Gale, England: ``6190 kHz 26th May --- Hi Glenn, Conditions were very poor on 6 MHz today, with the signal not fading in here until 1451 UT, though World of Radio was quite listenable from then until the end of HLR's programmes at 1500 UT.

Not unusual for 6 MHz at this time of the year, and I suspect that things will get worse in the coming weeks rather than better. Back to burning the midnight oil on 7780 kHz again this coming week then! :-)

Friday's IRRS programme at 1800 UT on 7290 kHz also carried World of Radio 1931 for about 5 minutes from 1825 to around 1830; this programme often seems to carry short snatches of a number of different programmes, and WoR does appear on there from time to time. Alan.``

Confirmed Saturday May 26 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, fair. Next:
Sun 0200 WRMI 7780 to NE
Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW from Germany

Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

** U S A. 9455, Friday May 25 at 2335, preaching in English, not TOM, WRMI ranging S7 to S9+10 peaks, better than usual, and not // 9395, 7780, 9955 or 5950. Sounds like Bob Biermann, confirmed at 2358 outro as *his* `Your Weekend Show`, referencing disgraced FB; 2359 ``Popcorn`` tune plays past 0001 May 26. IIRC, 2300 Fri was one time `YWS` used to appear on 9395 before it was ravaged by so much other opt-away programming.

One more check May 26 of http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs whether the secret 9455 transmission has yet made it to the public schedule? NO, despite having been on air and monitored now for a sesquiweek (by me, anyway; no one else seems to have cared/noticed). Hey, maybe Bob has set up his own pirate station? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.0, UT Sat May 26 at 0000, the 2300 Fri huxter on WBCQ is running overtime; finally faded down/cut off at 0001:45 for canned ID and ``WTO`` opening `AWWW` late; if 5130- now be //, it`s too weak JBA even to recognize the theme; 7490 with Allan`s interjexions during the music, but when it finishes at 0005, a different voice is heard first, which turns out to be Dr Becker who is also in the studio. Announces current date 25 May YOOL 2018, so it`s live. First topic is iHeart Radio going bankrupt by gigadollars. TROTS, from John Carver:

``Listening on 7490 though it was announced after theme music that they were broadcasting on 5130 and 9330 this evening also. Show started a bit over a minute late. Allan, Angela, Dr. Becker and later Tom Barna in the studio. Opening comments about iHeart Media`s money problems and the state of radio in this country. Then Dr. Becker extolled the virtues of the Free Masons for some reason.

Talk about the super station and the rotatable antenna started then, and would be a recurring theme for the rest of the show. Allan stated the new station was being built by one of their clients but again did not name them at this time.

First and only phone call at 0020 asking if the flat-earthers were aware of how propagation supposedly worked. After a long pause, Allan agreed that the flat-earthers were behind the new super station and then went into a long spiel defending their right to believe whatever they wanted to believe and how he would defend their right to believe whatever they wanted to believe and broadcast over the airwaves.

Caller then asked about the Nazis being on the air over WBCQ and Allan went into the story about American Dissident Voices and why he asked them to leave the air. Then he went on to say that Pastor Pete Peters was the only other broadcaster asked to leave the station although this writer thought that Hal Turner had been asked to leave the air also [but since, back on --- gh]. Allan also said he had received calls from the FBI, the Secret Service and the Southern Poverty Law Center over ADV and Hal Turner.

Started talking then about World's Last Chance Ministries behind the superstation and that they would be broadcasting in twelve different languages and that the frequency used would be 9330.

Dr. Becker talked some about the construction going on at the station and both he and Allan mentioned that the feed line for the transmitter cost three thousand dollars a foot. Quick mention of the generator being built and some talk about the power consumption for the new transmitter.

Tom talked about a quick and dirty repair of a satellite cable ten minutes before they went on the air. Then Allan gave us the primer version of the station's lightning protocols.

At one point during the discussion this evening, Dr. Becker stated that the superstation was the largest private station in the world [sic]. He also jokingly stated that WBCQ was moving backwards. Intending to illustrate that while other shortwave stations were downsizing or going off the air, WBCQ was expanding.

This writer thought it humorous as the point that a station was being built to spread the flat-earthers` creed around the world could be construed as moving backwards. Show was off the air at 0059. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15240-, Sat May 26 at 1635 and earlier, no signal from Radio Munansi, so apparently gone again via WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12160, Sat May 26 circa 1940, WWCR-2 with `The Last Radio Playing`, music filler show with contact info for host Allan Gray. SWLing is sparse in the daytime on caradio, only a few bigsigs, mostly disposable gospel huxtering, but TLRP is now a full hour per WWCR pdf sked *finally* updated as of May 15 showing 19-20 UT Saturdays on 12160, and with correct Central time conversions as UT -5!
http://www.wwcr.com/program-guides/WWCR_Program_Guide.pdf
TLRP has three additional times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10115-USB, May 26 at 1257, weak 2-way in Spanish; hams who think this is a phone band? Or simply intruders. Hams *should* have a 30m phone band, perhaps another 100 kHz, as it`s a long way from 40 to 20m, with drastic propagation differences. 10115 is zero-beat to some CW which I don`t even hear until stepped down to 10114 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15730, May 26 at 1303, strong open carrier, but gone at 1304* recheck after trying 15230 where RHC is much weaker. Later in day, 15730 is used both by RHC, and by VOA: more likely Greenville now with a transmitter test (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 6135, May 23 at 1147, noise jamming only at S6, no
trace of a carrier from V. of Freedom, which is presumably still on
reactivated 6045 where I do have a carrier with some music at S4-S5, no
jamming audible here but Ron Howard reports VOF and jamming on 6045 at
1050-1220+ today.

fact the SSOB; compared to 3325 JBA carrier from Bougainville or

and/or jamming on 75, 66, 49mb.
