** CUBA. 5040, July 8 at 0536, open carrier of S8-S9: could it be
Vanuatu? Too weak for Cuba and too strong for Van, but since there is
a JBA carrier on 7260 now, RV presumed back on that sked, and Havana
must be ailing, where something is always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13638 & 13762 approx., July 8 at 1443, RHC weak spurblobs
with music in FM and F# tone above Cmiddle as usual, out of 13700-AM
which is S9/+10. But the second orders JBA circa 13826 and trace 13576
bear a lower tone of C#, never noted before. Hz equivalents are
approx. 370 & 270. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15665, July 8 at 0528, JBA talk, listed as CRI
Russian via Urumqi at 04-06 --- a ``midnight sun`` log from the land
of ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Level-3 tropo blob predicted over N Central OK as far as
OKC brings in some LPTVs not normally visible. My antenna is now only
the roof-mounted ch 7+ VHF/UHF permanently aimed SSE toward OKC. Back
element reflector is a bit loose but taped up. This is UT Thursday
July 8 from 0315.

RF 28, Ion 44-1 which would be Tulsa
RF 35? KUOK PSIP seen briefly but should be 36? Saved by STB? The real
KUOK in Woodward is RF 36 & virtual 36; while the OKC version, KUOK-CD
is now also on RF 36 & virtual 36. What we normally see on virtual
36-1 is really from the full-power KTUZ-29 Shawnee transmitter also
with 30-1 as competing Telemundo, and 48-1 as Estrella TV.

BAD signals on 26, 22, 21, 20, 15, 11

At 0328:
RF 35, 35-1 with credits from NFB Canada film about native matters;
FNX logo but no other explicit ID nor any on the PSIP, and into
another First Nations program. This is solid on the STB into my old
CRT TV, but on the Sanyo DTV screen, error message ``Scrambled
Program``. No, it isn`t! Both my TVs are fed by splitting feed from
same antenna. It holds up for about 15 minutes as I am tuning around.

This is obviously K35MV-D licensed to Concho OK, which is just west of
OKC, and have seen before. Non-ID is ``47.1 FNX``. Rabbitears.com say
it is ``CATV 47``, presumably where it be found on Cox cable thruout?
OKC. FNX has *368* affiliates thruout USA, mostly LP or translators
but a real PBS station KNME Albuquerque included. More info from
website linked at rabbitears:

``Welcome! K35MV-D C&A TV - Cheyenne and Arapaho Television is proud
to serve you! ABOUT US:

Cheyenne and Arapaho Television- C&A TV is making history as the first
Native American owned and operated broadcast TV station in the State
of Oklahoma. It is one of only a handful of Native American TV
Stations in the U.S.

The establishment of K47MU-D Cheyenne and Arapaho Television was made
possible by a Facilities Grant from NTIA.

C&A TV is a low power Public Broadcast TV station broadcasting from
the C&A Tribal Headquarters in Concho, OK since July 2012.

In 2018 the FCC sold C&A TV's frequency to T-Mobile and required us to
change our broadcast frequency and call letters.
We are now channel 35.1 and have the call letters K35MV-D.

K35MV-D Cheyenne and Arapaho Television – C&A TV provides 100% Native
American television programming to our viewing audience 24/7 as well
as serve our tribal members by providing local community and tribal
government information, language education, and documenting our
cultural events.

C&A TV is a proud affiliate of the FNX Channel First Nations
Experience. www.fnx.org

Together with FNX, Cheyenne and Arapaho Television is providing
Oklahoma with a rich cultural viewing experience to our Native as well
as our Non-Native audience. It is our hope that we not only present
positive and inspiring images of Native Americans but also that
through cultural exposure and education, we foster a better
appreciation and understanding between Oklahoma's Non-Native and
Native communities.

OUR MISSION:

To preserve the history, language and culture of the Cheyenne and
Arapaho people and to present programming that informs, educates,
uplifts, inspires, and promotes their mental and physical well
being.

OUR VISION: 

CATV47 intends to provide the best Native American programming
available in North America that will respect, honor and uplift the
Native American peoples, traditions and cultures in general and
whenever and however possible, the Cheyenne and Arapaho people
specifically.

* LANGUAGE: We will strive to preserve and promote use of the Cheyenne
and Arapaho languages by producing original language education
programming aimed at both children and
adults.

* ELDERS: We will honor and respect our tribal elders by capturing and
preserving their stories and their wisdom.

* CHILDREN AND YOUTH: We will produce Children’s programming that
promotes a positive and healthy self-image by instilling a sense of
pride in their culture and heritage. We will also produce youth
programming that will promote healthy lifestyle choices ( to remain
drug free and avoid alcohol abuse) as well as staying in school and
promoting secondary education.

* SOCIAL ISSUES INFORMATION: Provide information on resources and
tribal programs for social issues that plague the tribe like suicide,
alcohol abuse, depression, domestic and sexual abuse, drop-outs, teen
pregnancy and unemployment.

* CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING: It is our hope that through exposure to
our television programming we may foster a better understanding and
appreciation of Native American culture among the Non-Native
cultures.

We hope that C&A TV will not only continue to be a symbol of pride and
accomplishment for the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes but also a source
of quality Native American information and entertainment.

C&A TV is a public, non commercial, educational TV station and depends
on underwriting and generous gifts from viewers like YOU!

to continue to provide you with this unique programming.

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed July 7 at 1510 tune-in, LRA36 is
underway, VP S1-S2 into Brasília #2 SDR, but much better S5-S8 into
Pardinho SP, where from 1512 I camp upon someone already exactly tuned
to it in McMinnville, Oregon. Tango in progress; same canned ID at
every break between tunes, 1515, 1519, 1522, the ``Nacional Antártida
Argentina -- la Radio Pública`` one. 1526 YL closing announcement
credits Ministerio de Defensa, so this Base is hardly civilian; also
acknowledges all the other LRAs around Argentina allegedly relaying.
Do they pick it up off this SW frequency or cheat via satellite or
web? Then OM s/off, and 1527-1531* Antártida song. No more mod, but
back to Bsla #2 SDR off-tuned to 15475.0-USB, I can tell the reduced
carrier stays on, JBA fading in and out making tone just less than
1000 Hz, and *still* on when SDR times out after 60 minutes at 1632,
and I`ve had more than enough. Maybe they leave it on to keep the room
warmer? Or electrical fluid is cheap? Hardly, nor maybe the Diesel to
generate it. Often after ``s/off`` they continue with more programming
but not today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey July 7 at 1346: 13130 Chinese S2-S5;
13020 JBA; 12880 Chinese S2-S5; 12795 Chinese S3-S6; 12500 JBA
carrier; 13530 JBA. I continue to be amazed that certain reporters
keep claiming they are hearing Sound of Hope, blissfully ignorant of
the much more likely jammers; and editors don`t correct/challenge
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. During Es opening hour July 7 at 17-18 UT, on caradio,
see USA, I have to contend with nearby spoilers fading in and out, but
FWIW some log info on them:

99.5, July 7 at 1726, ``Big Country 99.5`` = KXBL Henryetta.

99.3, July 7 at 1727 ``radio special`` food ad; probably 3 kW KLOR-FM
Ponca City.

97.5, July 7 at 1732, sex counseling ad, ziprecruiter.com/radio; 1734
about recount so AZ maybe? but sports news mentions OU [why isn`t it
UO = University of Oklahoma?]; 1735 possibly different station, rather
clear ID as KFOD, but nonesuch even fuzzily rhyming, nor as AM call
translated to FM; must have been merely KMOD Tulsa, tho not sports
format.

104.5, July 7 at 1740, song with audio cutting out. Must be KZZW
Mooreland = Woodward ``market`` if you can call such small towns that.
No one at station paying attention? Woodward-Mooreland has a lot of FM
stations for its size, due to isolation: 16 of them, 10 of which are
full-power. 2010 population of Woodward was 12K; entire county was
only 20K. It`s 136 km = 85 miles from the nearest metropolis, Enid
with more than 4X the population; but 12 FM stations, only 4 of which
are full power and one of those, 96.9 really funxions as an OKC
station (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7730, July 7 at 0538 UT, WRMI with trace of
JBM on S9+20/30 signal while TOMBS is blasting in on 7570, etc. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2093 monitoring: did anyone hear the Wed 1030
on WRMI 5850? Confirmed Wed July 7 at 2100:21 on WBCQ 7490 minus 83 Hz
per Maryland SDR = 7489.917, S7-S9. But NOT confirmed at same time on
WRMI 7780 which is NOT on the air! Still off circa 2340; Okeechobee
did not seem to be too close to the Elsa storm track.

Next, and last:
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

New WOR 2094 should be ready for download by early UT July 9 and first
SW airings Friday at 0130 on WRMI 5850 & if on air then, 7780 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, July 7 at 1116, JBA here and not 5015, presume WRMI
back on non-wrong frequency, as reported by Ivo 23 hours before. Still
no reply from Jeff about this; usually when he does not reply to a
direct inquiry it means there is something negative he would rather
not discuss (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 15825, July 7 at 1351, WWCR-1 is Just Barely Modulated, or
to be charitable, very undermodulated. I have no way of quantifying
such judgments. Have to turn volume way up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E patch MUF 94 MHz over New Mexico, so looks
promising for westward DX; on caradio in garage I start at 1707 UT
July 7:

87.75, July 7 at 1707, first thing tuned is Spanish! Slightly better
on 87.7 than 87.9; likely a FrankenFM, which will have to drop dead on
July 13 when everything has to be DTV, with a few exceptions such as
remote Alaska. Two women conversing, first about TicToc; 1712 about
Puerto de Veracruz, so could it be a lingering full-power analog
Mexican TV channel 6? Probably not: is religious plugging a `conexión
de verano con Jesús`` el 11 de julio; 1715 fading in and out. Mentions
guadaluperadio.com and program is `Mujeres de Fe`. Then I`m scanning
upband; by 1728, 87.7 is fading, gone by 1737 and not much more in the
next semihour. Uplooked later in the WTFDA FM Database, only hitfit
is:

``KSFV-LP 87.7 SAN FERNANDO VALLEY CA Spanish RELIGIOUS GUADALUPE
RADIO 3.0 kW horiz. only, 0.0 meters HAAT! 34-12-46 118-03-42
A41F``
1876 km = 1166 st mi city to city per distancefromto.net

94.1, July 7 at 1710, something in English trying to get past 94.3.

93.1, July 7 at 1717 CCI to KS in English, 1718 MontsterMedia.com of
Yuma = https://www.monstermediayuma.com/ so it is no doubt:

``KLJZ 93.1 YUMA AZ HOT AC Z-93 TODAY'S BEST MUSIC 100.0 kW H&V
only 25.0m HAAT 32-39-06 114-39-04 2E0F`` 1584 km = 984 statute miles.
Also ads for casino, summer splash at San Luis AZ; CCI:

93.1, July 7 at 1720, ``93-1 The Mountain, Valley traffic`` on Las
Vegas Blvd. I bet it`s the one in NV:

``KYMT 93.1 LAS VEGAS NV HD ROCK 93.1 THE MOUNTAIN 23.5 kW H&V 1183.0
m HAAT 35-57-55 115-30-00 18CF 93-1 The Mountain World Class Rock
Adult Hits`` 1545 km = 960 stmi. Site is SW of LV closer to the CA
border where there are a couple of mountains higher than that.

97.3, July 7 at 1722 strong briefly, national ads getroman.com, GEICO,
get a 97.3 app, 1725 sports talk about CBS, probably this:

``KWFN 97.3 SAN DIEGO CA HD SPORTS 97.3 THE FAN 50.0 kW H&V 134.0 m
HAAT 32-43-13 117-04-14 4AA7 97.3 The Fan The FAN, San Diego's Only FM
Sports Station Sports`` It also has a bunch of co-channel boosters
under 100 watts elsewhere in southern California. SD = 1810 km 1024
mi

99.5, July 7 at 1753, ``Real Country`` slogan. No exact hits on that
in WTFDA but Google search on slogan and MHz leads to KXPL Las Cruces
NM whose main brand is Zia Country; but that`s a bit too close, 934 km
= 580 stmi; and to KHAZ Hays KS, more likely fringe scatter signal,
304 km = 189 stmi. Some others seem Okie spoilers, q.v. (Glenn Hauser,

** CHINA. 13640, July 6 at 2210 talk in Japanese, S1-S6, but not NHK:
soon ID as ``Kochirawa Pekin Hoso`` = CRI via Jinhua 831 site more or
less USward far beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 6 at 0620, RHC English with big humbuzz atop
English; 6100 undermodulated; 6165, 6000, 5040 all off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 & 11760, July 6 at 1421, no signals from these RHCs;
9710 music poor, and 9535 JBA carrier, at least on. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, July 6 at 1500, ``Kashmir Civitas`` ID in
passing shortly after opening in presumed Urdu via Romania; another
weekly Tuesday clandestine, S9+15 into UTwente. BTW, Civitas is
pronounced Sivitas, not Kivitas as in klassical Latin; but what has
any Latin to do with this? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 15770, July 7 at 0138, indeed this WRMI on
extended hours, poor but // 7570 with TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3215, July 7 at 0251, WWCR-1 at S9+10/20 of
dead air from dead Stair; 0317 in storm noise level I think I detect a
trace of JBM.

3265.1+ meanwhile, TOMBS via WBCQ circa 0300 is a JBA off-frequency
carrier, fortunately totally unusable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9955, Tue July 6 at 2218, WRMI with Radio Emma Toc, World
Service, that strange quasi-DX programme monthly from Britain; bits
about R. Caroline, and Good Morning Vietnam. Show is going on hiatus
for a while after this one, he says (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, July 7 at 0139, WRMI-14 poor here in noise, not 5015,
altho Ivo Ivanov found it on ``wrong`` 5015 in the July 6 morning at
1210 & 1230 via Boca Ratón SDR. Must check that July 7 in the 11-14 UT
span. Have asked Jeff about it but no reply yet (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 4980, July 7 at 0140, WRMI-4 with squeal on USB not LSB of
my R75, but is it transmitted or receiver artifact? Recheck at 0357 on
Key West SDR, no squeal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 7 at 0142, WRNO is back on after missing last
night; whew (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, July 7 at 0144, WTWW-1 carrier is cutting on and off
the air about once per second but not exactly, making the PPPP
modulation unusable, tsk2. Still so past 0200+; hey Ted, haven`t you
noticed something`s slightly wrong? Don`t you even listen raptly to
your benefactor? Recheck at 0219, now carrier stays on.

5085 meanwhile, WTWW-2, July 7 at 0145, carrier still jittery but
nowhere near as bad as 5830; yet obviously defective (Glenn Hauser,

City KS, not an obvious SS area, but suspect rimshotting into Wichita.
Inside Enid obscured by local on 106.3. AM bandscanning out of the

Live Request Show On WRMI Shortwave This Week!

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

An invitation to Join me, Paul Walker, on WRMI Shortwave for “The LIVE Friday Night Request Show Dance Party Thingy” being relayed from NPR/community radio station KSKO 89.5 McGrath, Alaska.


It’ll take place Saturday July 10th 0300-0500UTC on 7780kHz to the east coast
US and Western Europe, 7730kHz to the west coast US, Canada along with Hawaii,
And the South Pacific (NZ, Aus, etc) and 4980kHz to the Caribbean and South
America. (This is Friday night local time in the US, Saturday UTC time across the world)

I’ll be taking phone calls with requests with a number given out during the show as it’s truly
LIVE. No station money was spent for this, It’s coming out of my pocket just to have something different up on shortwave for a few hours.
The music during the show could be ANYTHING from any genre and any year. It’s a combination of what *I* want to hear and what listeners request. I’ve had Judas Priest, Garth Brooks and Weird Al Yankovic back to back to back during the Friday night show before because they were all requested in that order by 3 different listeners.

A note:  5850kHz/7570kHz is beamed towards Vancouver, 7330kHZ is beamed towards the US/Mexico border according to Jeff white which affords 7730 better coverage of the Pacific Ocean region countries than 5850 or 7570.

** CANADA [non]. 7488.871, July 2 at 0200, ``Canada D`Eh`` special by
Uncle Bill and Fred Waterer on WBCQ, a fun show of comedy and tunes; I
listen first on the `7490` webcast but it craps out at 0217 so I
hasten to Area 51 webcast, but it`s some other music! The special was
supposed to be on both 7490 & 6160. Then I bring up the Maryland SDR
to find that 6160 is not even on the air, but it`s getting 7490. A few
minutes later I can go back to the 7490 webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

The 7490 webcast crapped out again about 0253, but I still had the
NA5B remote running. 73, Glenn PS: I also plugged it a few minutes
before on the first WOR broadcast at 0130``

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [and non]. No activity on ``Hurricane Watch
Net`` frequencies of 14325-USB and 7268-LSB, July 6 at 0126 and
earlier. BTW, there is a hurricane across Cuba toward Florida (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, July 6 at 0110, JBA pirate music,
presumed usual Nowhere Radio on this exact frequency. As here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,83629.0.html

6950-USB, July 6 at 0111, pirate music S6 vs storm crashes peaking S9.
Many reports here as Radio Genix as early as 2028 UT July 5:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Nearby NDB check July 6 at 0130 UT: confirmed
ON: 515 PN Ponca City, 350 RG OKC, 341 EI Enid, 332 IC Wichita KS. I
am getting these much better S/N on N/S shortwire than on E/W
Wellbrook which is supposed to be lower-noise. Still off: 255 SW
Stillwater (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 5 at 2200, REE intro by Justin Coe does
not mention a mailbag segment coming up, but there was one reported 3
weeks ago; irregular? VG into Maryland SDR. BTW, Alison Hughes was
said to have taken early retirement (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 395-MCW kHz, July 6 at 0128 UT, maybe my line noise is
abating a bit altho I have not heard from OG&E; two 25-watt Kansas
NDBs colliding, but with slightly different periods almost alternating
for one iteration: CA in Newton/Harvs to the north, and ULS Ulysses to
the NW. Classaxe.com shows respective periods are 6.27 and 7.41
seconds.

Harvs is a strange name, and not even in my large scale Rand McNally
atlas, but distancefromto.net locates it not near Newton at all, but
NW of Lyons and ENE of Great Bend. From there it is 174 miles to
Ulysses in the SW corner (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28206.3-CW, July 6 at 0054 UT, VVV DE KM4NBB/B. Some more CW
followed I did not copy, and I thought it was KM4NB/B, missing a B,
and about 28206.1, but listed as such by WJ5O at qsl.net:

``28.2063 KM4NBB C MURRARYVILLE [sic], GEORGIA # 5W, VERTICAL New 19
September 2020`` - and his page at QRZ.com says:

good but French?Kriyol? occasional QRM, perhaps overload in Noale
SDR.

Also confirmed Sun July 4 at 2200 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 100
Hz = 6159.900 kHz, per Maryland remote in SAM mode, S7-S9. (The other
WBCQ with `UBMP` on 7490 minus 102 Hz = 7488.898 kHz.)

Also confirmed Sun July 4 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9 over Cuban pulse
jamming into Maryland SDR; S1-S2 into Brasília #2 SDR, even tho it`s
aimed thataway.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 5 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America.

** U S A. 9395, July 5 at 0205 tune-in to WRMI for Texas R SW 4th of
July special - patriotic speech by YL in progress, not music yet;
illegible notes; 0213 Ray Charles: America the Beautiful; 0222 QSL
offer in OM voice and intro next tune, Springsteen: Born in the USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 6 at 0124 still no signal from 500 kW WLCR via
WBCQ, and I guess there will not be for a while. Update on this via
Mike Terry: ``[WOR] WBCQ "Big Tube" a write-off --- Allan Weiner
@AllanWBCQ · 4h Trials and tribulations. Searching for a TH576 tube,
or equivalent, to get the mighty 9330 back on the air. Classic WBCQ
still going strong on 7490/6160/3265 khz. The free speech goes on!!
The big tube went to air while on the air. All burnt up and not
rebuildable. Sad $200k loss. (Twitter 5 July 2021)``

Well, isn`t the thing insured or under warranty? Anyhow, out of pocket
of the wacko Egyptian billionaire (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1360, UT Mon July 5 at 0022, I`m tuned to the KiwiSDR in
Philadelphia for the publicized 4th of July special DX test from WNJC,
Washington Twp - of several in NJ, the one near Camden and hence
Philly. I`m hearing a tone at S5-S6; 0023 singing jingle ID ``WNJC
13-60``; Star-Spangled Banner in Jimi Hendrix style, but not quite?
Mixing in a few notes of Taps; then VVV VVV VVV DE WNJC in Morse code
- not CW but tones on AM carrier. WNJC calls repeated over and over, I
lost count after eleven, maybe for a minute; 0028.5 sweep tones
upward.

I had no chance of getting it direct, but wanted to hear and confirm
what was going out. Despite proximity, hardly a local-quality signal,
altho it was dominant on frequency. Night and day coverage maps at
radio-locator.com imply the low-power night pattern axually has a
better lobe into Phila. than the higher-power day pattern. Strangely
enough, 24 hours later, I have seen zero reports of this on the NRC or
IRCA lists; maybe I should tell them that at least I for one heard it,
albeit remotely (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, July 6 at 0117, WTWW-2 with Ted saying he`s about to
play a 4th of July special of patriotic American music, recorded last
night, which failed to air ``because a cow stepped on a cable``. Very
distorted modulation tho and I shan`t listen. The carrier is also
jittering slightly, checked with BFO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 6 at 0122, WRNO is AWOL again. Usually was quite
strong lately when active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5179-USB, July 6 at 0119, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
one quite strong S7-S9 with ``engine noise``, mentioning quantities of
something measured in ``kilos``; which is nonsensical; kilowatts,
kilojoules, kilogallons, kilograms, kilomiles?? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 24000-27000 kHz, July 6 at 0104-0107, complete bandscan
for anything interesting as sporadic E is bouncing in CB 27+ MHz and
some 28+ MHz beacons. Still no broadcast auxiliaries, but some 2-way:
26315.1-AM, July 6 at 0104, contact maybe offset on 26314.7-AM.
26565.3-AM, July 6 at 0105, very strong signal just as it goes off
26583.4-AM, July 6 at 0106, Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, July 4 at 0638 UT, NDB PN, Ponca City
reconfirmed still on, JBA vs HNL (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. The virus of dead Brother Scare is spreading
even worse than during his lifetime. Artie Bigley, OH, reports July 2:
``Glenn, Brother Stair on KXEL 1540 AM now! As of Monday, or so, I'm
now hearing Brother Stair at 2:00 AM CDT on KXEL radio. He is on from
2-3 AM CDT. I've listened to the nighttime talk show that normally
airs at that time but it's now preempted by Brother Stair. Called the
station today and they told me that his organization recently brought
that one-hour time slot and he has been on the station before. I guess
that was over ten years ago. So, his organization must have more money
to burn on airtime on various stations is my point. As you mention on
WOR yesterday he is buying more time on WBCQ these days.
Artie``

I`ve also noted these expansions; where comes from all that money?! BS
ranting is unlistenable by anyone with half a brain, and blasting that
crap over more and more SW frequencies is not going to change that.
How ashamed SW stations must secretly be, allowing themselves to
depend more and more upon him.

4980, July 4 at 0620, WRMI indeed still on with squealy TOMBS. 5800 at
0628 also, S9+10/20 undermodulated. 9955 at 0637 also JBA carrier
presumably same as on new skedgrid overnights. And 9955 definitely
TOMBS at 1605 Sunday July 4, so mid-day has been added. But that`s not
all!:

6159.901, July 4 at 0621, S9+10, WBCQ with TOMBS, this transmitter
also expanded, overnight? Also have a JBA carrier on 3265.147, must be
same as previously measured offset+plus. No 7490 or 9330 tho. WBCQ
program sked still shows no expansion of 6160 nor any 3265 at all!

9265V, July 4 at 0635, JBA S9 = hi local line noise level, must be
WINB, normally never on at this hour, bet it`s TOMBS too! Program sked
not updated since June 6. However, EiBi shows 9265 in DRM at 0700-1100
M-F only, but this is Sunday.

BUT TOM website HAS been updated for July with all this new stuff:

https://overcomerministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/OVERCOMER-MINISTRY-RADIO-LOG-2021-Google-Docs.pdf

Including WINB 9265 at 0400-0700 daily; WBCQ 3265 24/7! 6160 24/7
except for the existing Area 51/61 blox. 7490 from 1600 daily but not
overnight. Also lots of time via Bulgaria, WWCR, and of course WRMI,
on 13 frequencies, probably partially via every single transmitter.
Also expansion on AM/FM stations including KXEL at 06-08 UT daily
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2093 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 3 at 1800:36 on IRRS via Romania 7290, VG via UTwente, and also
on Italia AM, 918 kHz, via nearby Noale SDR steady S9+17, running 3
seconds ahead of 7290 as via two different SDRs. Earlier, 7290 from
1755 tune-in with hum and warble on plus side only; 1759:46 JIP Aida
theme cut on in progress as usual, quick IRRS ID, rather long pause
before WOR start. Timings compared to RWM 9996-CW also via UTwente.

BTW, EI Enid is on 341 kHz, not 342 as I misspoke on WOR 2093.

WOR also confirmed from 1942 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO via nearby SDR.

Also confirmed at NEW time of 2000 Saturday July 3 on WRMI 15770, good
direct at this hour, even tho off the side.

Also confirmed ending at 0341.5 UT Sunday July 4 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM
direct, sufficient but storm noisy; so started early circa 0312. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun July 4 at 0028, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` almost on
time, including really frantic version of William Tell Overture; take
that, AAAWWW! But by then I`m on the stereo webcast, non-distorted.
Ends right at 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, still AWOL WLCR via WBCQ. Dave Zantow got the reason:
``Alan Weiner via Twitter (July 4, approx. 1330 UT) --- "9330 the
worlds Superstation off the air. The power amplifier tube cracked in
half!!! Never saw that one before. Manufacturing defect we think as
the big PA tubes last up to decades. Searching for a spare now. TH576
made by Thales in France. Very disappointed. Cost new $100k." Dave
Zantow N9EWO, Janesville WI, "Dave's Radio Receiver Page"`` (WOR iog)

** U S A. 1360, July 4 at 0345-0355 UT, trying to hear WNJC,
Washington Twp, the one near Camden NJ, via closest KiwiSDRs, in
preparation for July 4th DX test at 00-10 UT, but not getting anything
identifiable via Philadelphia, Central NJ to the north, nor Fair Hill,
Maryland to the south; as I have little hope of getting it direct
despite nightly `DX tests` from 0400 in June and early July. The July
4 special might have been on tonight = UT July 4 but probably really
UT July 5, they did not make explicitly clear (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 92.9, July 4 at 1721 UT, ``Eagle 92.9`` IDs at least thrice,
also mentions iHeart, vs considerable CCI. I`m checking for Es on the
caradio parked in the garage following 90+ MHz MUFs on DXMAPs. This is
the only unusual signal found on 87-98 MHz. WTFDA database shows only
two possibilities:

KTGL 92.9 BEATRICE NE CLASSIC ROCK THE EAGLE 92.9 100.0 kW ERP H&V
247.0 m HAAT 40-31-06 96-46-07 42D3 THE EAGLE Title & Artist Classic
Rock

WEGX 92.9 DILLON SC COUNTRY EAGLE 92.9 100.0 kW ERP H&V 492.9 m HAAT
34-22-04 79-19-21 5FEB TODAY'S COUNTRY WEGX EAGLE 92.9 - Country

Unfortunately did not hear it long enough to tell whether country or
classic rock. Slogan did not start with ``The`` so that leans to SC,
which is also a likely distance for sporadic E, 1049 miles. Beatrice
however might have ``skipped`` in via tropo scatter, 275 miles, too
close for Es.

Such fringe stations mostly in KS & OK are the bane of my FM DXing, as
they can fade in and out completely much like Es. Checking
Radio-locator next, both have iHeart oonnexions, but neither directly
owned, both with streaming via iHeart. It looks like KTGL is less
iHearty, and I am leading toward WEGX as the more likely.

12795 Chinese. At 1259, 12500 Chinese to TS and 1400*. BUT at 1417 I

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 17750, Sat July 3 again checking out the jammed

17750 at 1508 mentions Tigray, telecommunications; 1510 HOA music. At
1605, UTwente hears only jamming, but Kuwait SDR still detects a
carrier under it. At 1659, jamming still runs S5 into UTw, S3 into
Kuwait, but no more carriers. Jam still runs at 1715 vs nothing, and
I`ve had enough with Don Giovanni starting on KUCO.

** U S A. As Dr Hansjoerg Biener points out, WRMI has a new skedgrid
dated 1 July. It`s a different URL so bookmarx must be replaced:
WRMI A21 Schedule as of July 1 - Google Sheets

OR: https://tinyurl.com/unsb6zp5

4980 has been reactivated after quite a spell without even an exciter
occupying it. Heard S9+10/20 at 0626 July 3 with TOMBS and squeal like
also heard on 5800 earlier. Now 4980 is WRMI-4, shown as nothing but
TOMBS at 0000-1100, 160 degrees. (However, part of that is to be
pre-empted for something else on July 10.)

WRMI-2 is now shown as the only unit with zero hours 24/7, at 222
degrees on 5985. Instead, the 5985 block is now from WRMI-14 at
0330-0600, 181 degrees; same transmitter used for 5010 at all its
times.

WRMI-3, 9955 at 160 degrees is now shown as 24 hours, the previous
gaps 04-10 and 15-21 filled by, what else, TOMBS! Contradixion: on the
System C sked itself of TOMBS, 9955 is NOT shown overnight, and in
daytime at 15-17 on Saturdays only.

Another contradixion: WRMI-9, 15770 on the xmtr grid continues 22-02
UT with TOMBS, but on System C only at 21-22. I expect there are more
anomalies/changes from previous grids (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, UT Sat July 3 at 0200-0300, Texas R SW via WRMI
presents Europirates or lowpowers, this week R. Igloo from Sweden.
Various elder members of a West Coast DX club introduce themselves in
English and play a favorite Swedish tune, all unfamiliar but less so
the final one by ABBA [sorry, I don`t have a backward B]. I also
notice a squeal via the remote, Maryland? I think still in play;
squeal like used to infest WWCR-1 but no more. Not sure if now it`s
real or remote-imposed, but also heard later on 4980 direct (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3265.108v, July 3 after 0000 during `AAAWWW` repeat on 6 &
7, WBCQ on here too with else, presumed TOMBS, and I missed citing the
exact frequency per SAM readout on Maryland SDR. All ``classic`` WBCQ
transmitters must be significantly off-frequency and varying;
depending on roughly-cut crystals?

3265.111v, July 3 at 1613 via Maine SDR, S5, WBCQ is also on now! and
with TOMBS. Running it all day, all night? Ditto 6159.901v at S9. Too
close, 7489.952v is also barely detectable; but no 9330.

The WBCQ website ``program schedule`` is far out of date! 3265 is not
even included; still shows 6160 not starting until *2300 except
Sundays *2200 for WOR & HRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15800, July 2 at 1326, algo JBA in Chinese? Yes, must be
CNR1 jammer, per Aoki, only this and SOH here. Besides a JBA carrier
on 13530, nothing else smacking of WOOB jammers now (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 13629 approx., July 2 at 1320, weak spurblob with telltale
tone of F#, out of 13700-AM which is S9+10 and undermodulated. Cannot
detect a twin circa 13771. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, July 2 from 2301 tune-in via Maryland SDR, Texas R
Shortwave test for N America via Channel 292 with beam antenna, as
Terry Colgan reminded us was imminent: Fair reception S6-S8, carrier
fluxuating plus/minus 7 Hz; QRM from 9665.157 presumably Brasil. I
also try the Warrenton MO SDR and find it`s JBA. Direct to me, JBA
carrier in S9 high line noise level --- I`ve complained again to
OG&E.

Back to Maryland for rest of hour, soul or blues music by female
performer; can`t understand the lyrix but nice beat and tunes. Also
hard to understand occasional synthom announcements at 2315, 2329,
offering QSL and inviting requests for future programs. Next titles
Down the Road? and Alligator Man? At 2400 to ``This is Radio Channel
292`` and other music continues a while (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

July 2 at 2033 the 2030 on IRRS via Italia-AM Villa Estense, 918 kHz,
S9+25 into nearby Noale SDR, but some breakup, hope not on the feed or
transmission. Then check UTwente where also audible across Europe and
not breaking up, but underneath CCI in Castilian from R. Inter, Spain,

and Allan starts out saying he is ``extremely sexually satisfied``.
Angela pretends? to shush him looking for mute button but there is
none. This sounds familiar; guess they have sex before every show as
warmup. They are so in love! From Deland of Fla where it was 100
degrees.

What`s wrong with Canada? Way behind in vax and opening up. Usual
rants equating Democrats with Communists; beware of flash mobs robbing
CVS --- not today when I was in Enid`s. 0032 datestamp as 28th of May,
YOOL 2021: this is a RERUN! I heard it before but same kind of stuff
every week so I didn`t realize that immediately. So I stop listening.
You may see my and John`s report of then in my log report of May 29
UT. John Carver agrees it`s from May and does not re-report it.

Earlier I had checked if there were any new twits, and yes, from
today, he predicted would be on 7490, 6160 AND 3265, which has been
AWOL for months. Indeed 3265 is audible in Maryland with lots of noise
--- great band for summer! But it`s other programming, probably TOMBS,
but I don`t care enough to seek a parallelish. N.B. Anker Petersen who
in ``tropical`` surveys had 3265 as a goner (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [non]. 7488.871, July 2 at 0200, ``Canada D`Eh`` special by
Uncle Bill and Fred Waterer on WBCQ, a fun show of comedy and tunes; I
listen first on the `7490` webcast but it craps out at 0217 so I
hasten to Area 51 webcast, but it`s some other music! The special was
supposed to be on both 7490 & 6160. Then I bring up the Maryland SDR
to find that 6160 is not even on the air, but it`s getting 7490. A few
minutes later I can go back to the 7490 webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 1 at 0546, RHC in Spanish instead of English and
no humbuzz! So that`s what it takes. What else? 6000 & 6165 are good
in English; 6100 is off; and 5040 is also in Spanish. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11462, Thu July 1 at 0550, S9/+10 of open carrier. Looks like
I just missed a spy transmission, per EiBi at 0454-0550 on days 246 =
TueThuSat (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13705, July 1 at 1422, no VOA beepery today, unlike the last
biday before 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2092 monitoring: confirmed UT Thu
July 1 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, S9+10 off the back into Maryland SDR but
with some storm crashes; and a bit of reverb on the modulation, an
effect not usually heard on WOR and certainly not originally.

** U S A. 9330, various chex June 30, July 1 at 1420 & 1707 and early
UT July 2 at 0128 find no signals from WBCQ SuperStation. Wonder
what`s wrong now? Meanwhile, Benn Kobb has unearthed some buried but
public documents from the FCC website about the delay in approving
WBCQ purchase of WHRI; Allan`s sister Barbara objects, saying he is
``fronting`` for that Egyptian billionaire behind World`s Last Chance
Radio, who of course could not own US radio stations outright. His
name is redacted but obviously Galal P. Doss (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15745-USB, July 1 at 1608, rough tone transmission with
multiple carrier peaks, a different sound than usual from the lower
half of the WINB hybrid DRM on ``15750``. Maybe that means it is just
idling rather than crypto stocktrading info. Off by 1706 check (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, July 1 at 0611, no signal from R Vanuatu, nor was
any detectable a few minutes before 0559 on 7260. Ron Howard agrees:

``Radio Vanuatu. Recently had been silent for about three days, then
back on for a few days, but checking July 1, from 0530+ UT, till past
0845, on all the normal RV frequencies, found them clearly off the air

swimmer. Buzz on modulation. 2131 timesignal and `News in Brief`,
one-liner headlines, including heat wave in SW Canada, so appears to

New WOR 2093 should be ready by early UT Friday July 2 at 0130 on
WRMIs 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15329.23-USB approx., June 30 at 0123, weak 2-way
INTRUDERS in colloquial Spanish, very difficult to pinpoint with very
brief interchanges, the stronger one with ``engine noise``. Hey, who
would notice, right smack dab in the middle of an almost vacant
broadcast band? Cambio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. Re my log of something 13920+ after CNR1 jammer
off 1400* June 28, could it be Sound of Hope? Inconclusive, but
Wolfgang Bueschel replies, ``TAIWAN 13919.991 kHz a tiny poor signal
noted at 1352 UT June 29 remotedly on Tokyo SDR unit.`` And previously
on March 7, 2012: ``13920.004 SOH Xi Wang Zhi Shen. Miaoli, Mandarin.
S=5, 0756 UT. 73 wb df5sx``.

My CNR1 jammer logs June 29 at 1421: 13530 JBA vs CODAR; 13130 weaker
Chinese; 12880 even weaker S5-S8; 12820 & 12500 JBA carriers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC, and here is something
stranger than ever. June 29 at 1424 I start tuning for spurs on the 13
MHz band, first finding 13580 with extremely distorted music blob with
reconfirmed F# tone, that`s 120 kHz down from 13700 so next one should
be around 13640: yes, but as soon as I get there it vanishes while
13700 has been replaced by fax?? sounds at S9+10. Beepery goes on and
on and seems deliberate rather than random, some brief pauses. Reminds
me some of fax and some of SSTV. I cannot decode either. Briefly at
1430 there is a mixture of this and undermodulated music at S9+10/20.
One zero-beat is at 13703. At 1432 I check for more on the plus side:
13762 has F# blob, also weakers around 13825, 13886, 13948, trace
14013; and JBA trace circa 14075 where it collides with that hamband
beepery, whatever it be. Back to the fundamental, which is now
centered on 13705 with the SSTV/fax beepery; spurs now circa 13579,
13518 trace. 13705 continues past 1458. At 1459 I measure JBM carriers
with F# tones on 13761.73 and 13638.29. At 1502, 13700 is off, but now
13705 is playing RHC music, no beepery, 1503 dead air and 1504* off! I
wonder if the RHC broadcast sites, besides being shared with jammers,
spies, also be shared with utility services (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, it`s another Tuesday already June 29, so I
remember just in time at 1525 to check UTwente for what`s on this week
from IRRS: last week from 1500 it was ` Sounds Irish` music, and
before that it was Kashmir Civitas clandestine. It`s back to the
latter, S9+20/30, talk in presumed Urdu mentioning Kashmir with
strumming musical background. 1527.5 ``salaam aleikum`` greeting in
closing; 1528 a bit of other music and cut off air early? at 1528:15*,
soon back on for a split second before gone for good.

Others had been hearing this earlier: Arthur Pozner near NYC, Harold
Sellers in BC, and Paul Walker in AK.

Pozner says: ``Confirmed about the actual language. It is the same
"Kashmir" program in Urdu and was received in several countries with
various results. And a station ID came on in Russian: "This is
Inter-Radio Romania"!``

Sellers says: ``fair-good in southern British Columbia at 1519 with
presumed Kashmiri. Man with stringed instrument music in background
into an on location report of some kind. Missed sign off which was
before 1528. Was good at 1523`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Quick check of nearby 25-watt ND beacon status, June 29
at 2255 UT: 255 SW Stillwater still off; 342 EI Enid and 515 PN Ponca
City still ON (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 5800, June 29 at 0553, NO open carrier this Tuesday from
presumed WRMI after-hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) However:

** U S A. 7730, June 29 at 0557, open carrier/dead air from this WRMI
TOM frequency, while the others, 7570, 5850, 5950 and 9395 are OK
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

carriers from presumed R. Vanuatu resuming normal schedule (Glenn

15150 1725UTC?

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

Who’s on 15150 at 1724UTC? Can’t find anyone listed. Noisy and fadey, can’t quite make out the language from my Alaska QTH.


15415 R. Ono/Diree Shaggar

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

15415 R. Ono/Diree Shaggar At 1605 with a warbling siren jammer and possible jet engine white noise too.


VOA English off schedule?

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

Caught VOA off schedule. Larry London’s Border Crossings. On 15580 via Botswana as schedule, but 17530 is missing.  15610 is on with Larry London at 1545UTC but is only supposed to be on for an hour at 1400UTC in Kurdish. Second time I’ve caught 15610 on, off schedule but last time, 17530 was on as well.
