Glenn Hauser logs May 9-10, 2020

Glenn Hauser

** ALBANIA [non]. 5800, UT Sun May 10 at 0235, Radio Tirana relay via
WRMI confirmed at new time, feature about Albanian history; but it`s
only UT Sun & Mon at 0230; good signal as usual here and the closing
IS at 0259 leads into a new WOR time too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7380, May 9 at 2207, RHC in undermodulated French, S9/+15, as
it should be for African service, ex-11880; 2341 recheck now the
English hour // 5040, back from slip/slop to Spanish stream yesterday.
Something`s not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, May 9 at 2216, RHC in Brazuguese, ex-11700; while
15270 is in Spanish, distorted and echoey unlike // 11800. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** DENMARK [and non]. ``Wolfgang Bueschel - may I then suggest that
you refrain from putting forward your personal opinions on music and
other content being broadcast on various SW stations. Why not just
report times, frequency and content without any prejudice!?

I am sure that there are many DXers around that appreciate your work.
Please don't be an idiot such as Glenn Hauser, who hardly cannot say a
sentence without attacking his personal enemies (Cuba in particular)
Best 73s Stig Hartvig Nielsen``

Wolfie on a log of 5840 WMR had said ``pop mx what else``. SHN took
great offense to that. Wolfie replied, ``I never hate any music!``

Geez, Stig, I have gone out of my way to publicize your stations -- a
fine effort to put a country back on the SW map, and this is your
appreciation? Everyone is entitled to their opinions and to express
them. May your skin become thickened. You might not be so happy about
a country like Cuba if they jammed your broadcasts! I have treated you
fairly. But I shall try to avoid reporting your stations in future,
unless perhaps someone have something critical to say about them. Was
going to mention Kuhl`s correxion on next WOR, but why should I?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN. 6160, May 10 at 0101, no WBCQ tonight, just Qur`an for the
Turx from PARS/IRIB/VOIRI, to the end of Ramadan in another biweek
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 10 at 0103, S5-S8 of rock music
from The Mighty Farty KBC, as its second outing this year on 9925 via
GERMANY is failing, fading down to JBA by 0123. I suppose they are too
inflexible to move to 7 MHz until and unless the MUF perk up to 10 MHz
this summer? Since this is for North America anyway, why won`t Eric
put it on WRMI? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NICARAGUA [non?]. 8989-USB, Sat May 9 at 2208, S4 in Spanish song
sounds gospel, the Pescador Predicador indeed back. It would be nice
to have some background about who and where he is, licensed or not?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, May 10 at 0100, soul music at S9, but poor
timing when my listening priority is `Encore` on 5850 WRMI. Many2 logs
here with SSTV pix say it`s Wolverine Radio between 0031 and 0204:,66874.0.html
Skipmunk says the song at 0100 was ``There Goes My Baby`` by the
Drifters; yes, theme tonight is Baby (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850 VG // >> 5010, UT Sun May 10 at 0100, `Encore`
another great hour of classical music via WRMI prevents me from
listening to The Mighty KBC, Wolverine Radio, the Lumpy Gravy Radio
Show or Shortwave Saturday Night --- why does everyone gang up on
Saturday night? At least Encore has an alternative, UT Monday 0200 on
WRMI 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 9 at 2204, VOT is on today, no RTTY, still in
opening news? but just too poor at S5-S8. This is what becomes of 500?
kW over a 10-megameter path (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2033 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria
confirms: ``Weak signal of World of Radio#2033 via WRMI-9 on May 9
1300-1330 on 15770 RMI 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu English Sat``

Also confirmed at brand new time of 0300 UT Sunday May 10 on WRMI
5800; tnx, Jeff! G signal to Virginia SDR altho it`s aimed SSE like
9955, but unlike 9955 is not jammed or above the MUF.

Also confirmed at 0325 UT Sun May 10 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM at the Algeria
6065 item, so just started at about 0322, Good via Indiana SDR. Next:

Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490+, May 9 at 2203, S7-S2 of dead air from WBCQ. Still on
the Saturday schedule for 100 minutes from 2200 is `Good Sounding
Oldies` --- can`t say I`ve ever heard it and not now either (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130, UT Sun May 10 at 0101, rock music presumably `Lumpy
Gravy` on WBCQ; and 7490+ Valkyries theme opening `Shortwave Saturday
Night` on the other WBCQ, but for rest of hour I am drawn to the
bigsig of classical from `Encore` on 5850 WRMI. Why does everyone gang
up on Saturday night at the same time? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun May 10 about 0030, WTWW-2 finally switches from
hamgab to TONITO. This signal is strong enough to be audible on my
portable next to noisy equipment, but at best there is annoying
selective fading distortion on the organ music; and it`s inconvenient
for me to switch to the stereo webcast, tsk (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
