Glenn Hauser logs July 31-August 1, 2020

Glenn Hauser

** ALGERIA [non]. 13820, Friday July 31, via UTwente I record the
18-19 UT hour of RTA via FRANCE, that clattering self-jamming
transmitter, to detect just when and what will be aired in English.
Starts at 1829, ``Hello, Muslims``, OM lecture about a holiday
celebrated at the end of Hajj, so I suspect Moslems already know all
about it. Every time a Big Shot is mentioned, such as Ibrahim and
Prophet Ismail, must postscript ``Peace be upon him``, or even ``Peace
and Blessings be upon him``. Is this a requirement on merely a
courtesy? May mere mortals, even non-dead ones, also be saluted thus?
I`ve seen it condensed to ``PBUH``. 1836 into Spanish YL, first about
COVID 19, then about same subject Hajj Fiesta, this version with music
relief. 1849 into French, later Arabic; 1858 brief Qur`an before
cutoff 1859* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: ``6993, July 28 at 0054, at least two JBA carriers
beating against each other. Time for another occasional log of
presumed propagation research stations in Florida...``

Martin Potter replies on the ODXA iog:

``Hi, Glenn, Your item about the unmodulated carriers from Florida
piqued my curiosity, and I have logged them during two evenings now on
4443 and 6993 kHz. QTH here is just south of Ottawa, Canada (grid
FN25), a little ways from Florida (about 2000 km).

29 July 2020, 0148-0201 UT on 4443.00, 4443.01, and 4443.02 kHz, QSA
1-2 but clearly visible on the SpectrumLab waterfall display.
29 July 2020, 0203-0222 UT on 6992.99, 6993.00, 6993.01, and 6993.02
kHz, QSA 1-2 but clearly visible on the spectrum display.

Next night I used my GPS-disciplined oscillator as 10 MHz reference
for the HP signal generator for frequency measurement, and got the
30 July 2020, 0205-0245 UT on 6993.000 and 6993.010 kHz, QSA 1-2 but
clearly visible on the spectrum display.
30 July 2020, 0246-0303 UT on 4443.000, 4443.010, and 4443.020 kHz,
QSA 2 and clearly visible.

The frequencies were measured without difficulty and there was no
great Doppler shifting of the signals on this north-south path, so I
believe my accuracy is within one hertz. For whatever it is worth, if
there was any difference in signal strength in my observations, the
signal on the whole kilohertz was always the strongest one. Not sure
what that means in practice.

I have attached the spectrum displays from 29 July {visible also in
the WOR iog}. Please ignore the accuracy of the frequency scale in
these as it is determined by offset of the receiver tuning, and is
good only for showing frequency differences, rather than absolute

As you might expect, none of these carriers is heard here during the
daytime, only after sunset. I hope you can make something of all this.
Thanks and take care! Very 73, Martin Potter VE3OAT`` WORLD OF RADIO

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2045 monitoring: NOT confirmed
Friday July 31 at 2200 on WRMI 9955 - first I am checking SDRs and
find no signal at the three Caribbean-area TWRs, not in Brazil either,
but at Bogotá, I realize there is a considerable carrier there but no
modulation! The webcast won`t run either. Then I check here direct and
also find S4-S6 of dead air. 2208 I e-mail WRMI about this, and Jeff
says they will check it out. But it`s still OC/DA at 2234 when I
survey the other WRMIs on air at this hour, and they all seem nominal:
9455, 9395, 5850, 5800; 5950 is on JBA but can`t be certain it`s
modulating. By 2305, 9955 is still DA vs jamming. 0039 August 1 seems
off while J continues; by 0128, 9955 is back on with music.

WOR 2045 is confirmed UT Sat August 1 at 0130 on WRMI trimulcast: 7780
fair S9, 5010 better S9+10 but both vs noise level, while 5850 is VG
S9+30/40. I listen straight thru on 5850 to be sure it`s OK as this
edition required a lot of editing due to technical problems. OK.

** U S A. (7490+), UT Sat August 1 at 0000 I start monitoring WBCQ
webcast of `Allan and Angela Weiner Worldwide` --- surprise! A very
frenetic jazzed-up version of ``William Tell Overture``. Allan thanks
Jason for that, sounds like the Siberian Orchestra? Initial topix:
``We all need to lighten up``; how beautiful Angela is, a wife he
loves so much; did you know that in the olden days of radio those on
the air would dress up even tho no one could see them: now we are
slobs. 0019 how AW listens to Rush and appreciates him; Angela says
for the elexion in November we have a choice between Donald Trump and
North Korea --- as the Democrats will turn US into a socialist
dictatorship; Allan would not go quite that far but says Biden is not
a real candidate, a joke. I can`t take any more of that, but check the
other frequencies via Alexandria remote: 5130 and 6160- are both on
but noisy. By 0053 I tune to 7490+ direct as he goes into a couple
e-mails; 0057 benedixion and wrapup.

Welcome back to John Carver, who`s back online, for his version of

``Tonight's AAWWW --- Tonight's show started on time on 5130, 6160 and
7490 with a different version of WTO. Allan and Angela in the studio.
Allan says Jason was responsible for the version of WTO that was
played this evening. Opening comments about the different version of
the opening theme song and how was dressed this evening. Allan states
that the biggest problem in this country is that people have lost
their sense of humor and take offense they don't like and free speech
be damned. A very wound up animated Angela again this evening. Lots
of virus talk and some political talk. Reading of emails at 0054 and
closing prayer at 0057. There was no transmitter or antenna talk this
evening and no station news at all. Program was off the air at 0100.
John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
