Glenn Hauser logs February 21-22, 2017


** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Tue Feb 21 at 1557, very poor carrier. If this is Radio Öömrang, we are going to have a hard time hearing it --- nothing else is scheduled here. Wham! Huge S9+10 OC cuts on just in time at *1559:54, so maybe I was just hearing the exciter at Issoudun, FRANCE at first. But dead air for more than a minute, causing more apprehension, another transmission failure? No, starts modulating at 1601:15 with sign-on in Frisian/German, website www.###-radio.de and I can`t recognize the full URL. Mentions Jahr 2006, so an old repeat? No, 1603 into English saying these broadcasts began in 2006y, but this is a new edition for a wonderful day in February, 2017. About someone`s 50-th wedding anniversary, and the rest of the hour is a long interview with her, mostly in Frisian, which is a lot more like German than English, with occasional bits of English. Could have used a bit of typical Frisian music interludes. 1615 mentions Radio Caroline. 

1620, Big-Ben style home clock chimes stop at 4 bongs; English announcement with frequency 15215, at 17 hours (local) giving Amrum address, and will be repeated at 19h on internet. Someone had worked in New York, and draws a US pension. 1622, ``The Frisian Voice of Amrum, broadcasting for more than ten years``. Etc., etc. 1658 closing says the 2018 Ausgabe will also be on 21 February at 5 pm on 15215, repeat address, 19h Wiederholung. 1659:45 UT stops, open carrier for 20 seconds and off*.

QSLs in previous years have only been proxy via Media Broadcast, never direct. Last year`s sending did not have a transmission failure of an hour of dead air, requiring a make-good. That was in 2015, when they finally got it on March 8.

This was a big steady signal with hardly any fading for the whole hour – a fine example of what DW, RFI or any European broadcaster could accomplish in English every day, if they cared to broadcast 500 kW at 300 degrees toward New York as in HFCC, per Wolfgang Büschel. It even overcame my computer noise so I could leave it on. I gather that reception was not so good in UK/Europe itself, of course in the skip zone and/or off-beam (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, UT Wed Feb 22 at 0155, Radio Verdad mentions `Mundo Sorprendente`, which is the title of a program with media/DX elements we hadn`t heard or heard about in a few years. Berny Solano in Costa Rica started it in 2013 and invited me to participate. Sked http://radioverdad.org/?q=programaci%C3%B3n
shows nothing of the kind nor some other programs we`ve really heard, so seems to remain far out of date,

RV is about to celebrate its seventeenth anniversary. It has issued a number of anniversary QSLs, and perhaps there will be another this year. I can`t find any on the website, except for the page explaining that it costs them up to $10 to QSL along with pennant, sticker, other printed material, and postage. That can be remitted by PayPal. However, the last we heard, postal service was out in Guatemala, and only e-QSLs could be sent.

The 11-page illustrated pdf station history 
says ``"Radio Verdad" salió al aire el 25 de febrero, a las 5:20 p. m., y fue inaugurada el 5 de marzo del año 2000``, and I had the pleasure of first publicizing it to the DX world. 

This was after a very long process since founder Dr. Édgar Amílcar Madrid first conceived it in 1967 as a 25-watt SW transmitter to put his new `Volviendo a Jesús` program on the air. The leadup takes about half the history file. It was written in 2014, the last part emphasizing internet transmissions, but nothing about the strange, never explained worldwide shortwave relay service without transmitters near the same frequency, which I always thought was a scam, and about which we have heard nothing further lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11351 & 11868, Feb 21 circa 2130, spurblobs from MWV 11610 Chinese are again detectable. Next frequency after 2200 is 11770 in Arabic, so I was going to look for same separations from it, circa 11512 and 12028, but the normally well-audible fundamental is missing, apparently not on today. Another prospect I`ve yet to seek is the 1900 Arabic on 11945 whose parasites might show circa 11687 and 12203. But many transmissions are missing sporadically as we suspect they have only one of their two transmitters funxional even with the spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 7170-LSB, Feb 21 at 0716, H44MS, Bernard, in Honiara in QSO with Bill who is thrilled, W1ZY. H44 is much weaker but still more readable than SIBC ever is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2500 poor, 5000 good, 10000 poor, 15000 very poor, Feb 21 at 1555, WWV is still on the air rather than publicized hiatus for electrical upgrade. Of course, I`ve been careful to be sure I am hearing WWV rather than WWVH, which is underneath on 15000. 

Not rechecked until 1948, when on 15000 I am getting WWVH at S7 but no WWV; this close could still be a trace not completely skipping over. On 1000, WWV is S9+20 and no WWVH. 5000 is fair with WWV. Nothing audible on 2500 or 20000.

So what is WWV announcing at 2004? Still the same announcement as for weeks about the Feb 21 and Feb 22 outages, from 1400 for no more than 8 hours each. Should try to hear LOL at 1400-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday February 21 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, good; also a few seconds later on WBCQ 9329.9v-CUSB. Also confirmed Tue Feb 21 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, good, but NO carrier even detectable on // 6855, off? Still nothing on 6855 at 2159, but it is audible at 2259 ID, 2300 into Radio Adventista Mundial // 5950. WOR 1865 also confirmed Tue Feb 21 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, holding own against wall-of-noise jamming, tnx a lot, Arnie! Which has diminished to nothing by 2328 recheck. Not confirmed UT Wed Feb 22 at 0030 on WBCQ, but something is JBA on 9330, probably WOR. Next:
Wed 1030   WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Feb 21 at 2000, WRMI starting `Jazz from the Left` as sked for this hour on Tuesdays, but only S9-S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Feb 21 at 2001, WEWN is very suptorted here, which is certainly better than overmodulated/splattering all over the band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable by the average
radio enthusiast.

Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are most evenly balanced
during the fall and spring equinoxes and most diametrically opposed during
the summer and winter solstices.

Conditions also change daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and by decade, as the
sun rises and sets at different times and at different angles from the
ecliptic, as well as by radio wave frequency. This is due to changes in the
maximum usable frequency (MUF), lowest usable frequency (LUF) and F layer
critical frequency (FoF2).

The D and E layers also come into play through RF radio wave signal
absorption and refraction. And then there is sporadic E (Es) radio wave
propagation that can really throw a wrench into the gears so to speak.

Things like sporadic E (Es) radio wave propagation and lightning storm
static can impact HF radio wave propagation in an unpredictable manner and
mostly bad.

Ongoing solar, space and geomagnetic weather goings on also impact HF radio
wave propagation conditions in a negative manner.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solar Space & Geomagnetic Weather Conditions On

Monday February 20, 2017-

Solar activity was low.

Earth's magnetic field was unsettled.

The three daily solar flux index (SFI) numbers were 80.2 80.7 80.1.

The official daily sunspot number (SSN) was 26.

Newly emerged sunspot group #12637 was located near S03E48 with a simple
alpha magnetic signature.

Newly emerged sunspot group #12638 was located near N18E63 with a simple
beta class magnetic signature.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 2017 there were 11 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of 0.
Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately three more
years, +/- one year, seeing daily SSN's of 0 occurring now is unusually
early.

In 2016 there were 32 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of 0.
Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately three more
years, seeing daily SSN's of 0 occurring now is unusually early.

As we move forward towards the next solar minimum between solar cycle #24
and #25 the number of days with a 0 daily SSN will steadily increase.
Eventually every day for many many many months will see a 0, the big goose
egg.

In 2008 I fore casted solar cycle 24 to be the weakest in the past 100 years
and that forecast verified. I also fore casted that solar cycle 25 would be
virtually non existent, similar to the Dalton type solar minimum that
occurred in the early 1800's. It will probably be very difficult to
determine when solar cycle 24 ended and solar cycle 25 began.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No earth directed solar flares occurred.

No earth directed coronal mass ejections (CME) occurred.

No earth directed collapsing magnetic filament eruptions occurred.

The twenty four hour period three hour interval planetary K index (Kp) was
at unsettled to quiet geomagnetic conditions of 1 3 2 2 2 2 2 3

The Kp geomagnetic indices are-
0-2- quiet
3- unsettled
4- active
5- minor geomagnetic storming
6- moderate
7- strong
8- severe
9- extreme
10- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.

The maximum and minimum planetary A index (Ap) ranged between 15 and 3,
which was at unsettled to quiet geomagnetic conditions.

The Ap geomagnetic indices are-
0-7- quiet
8-15 unsettled
16-29- active
30-49- minor geomagnetic storm
50-99- major
100-400- severe
>401- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.

The daily averaged background x-ray flux was B1.2.

The daily averaged vertical component (Bz) of earth's magnetic field was
+3.6 nT north.

The maximum and minimum Dst ranged between +2 and -25.

No energetic proton events greater than 10 MeV (10+0) occurred.

The maximum and minimum solar wind speed was 526 and 441. km/s.

There was a recurrent trans equatorial (geoeffective) directly earth facing
coronal hole #791 (#787). During it's previous passage across the earth
facing side of the sun it produced minor (Kp-4) negative impacts on HF radio
wave propagation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL
HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

NOTE!!!  The propagation indices "interpretations" are my personal
intellectual property. Therefore the radio wave propagation indices
interpretations contained herein is copyrighted © 1988-2017 by Thomas F.
Giella, W4HM, all rights reserved. Reproduction of information herein is
allowed without permission in advance as long as proper credit is given.

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible.
Something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

11.) Rising positive T index number. The T Index tracks with the F2 layer
critical frequency (foF2) and sunspot number (SSN) and indicates the
capability of the F2 layer to refract RF signals.

12.) Galactic cosmic rays decrease to -3 units below zero and trending
towards zero.

13.) Energetic electron flux levels no greater than 2 MeV (2+0).

14. A solar wind speed of less than 300 km/s for several days consecutively.

Glenn Hauser logs February 20-21, 2017


Correxions: The WBCQ frequency in both these items was not 9330.92v but 9329.92v-CUSB, fixed:

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9329.92v-CUSB, Feb 20 at 1525, Brother Scare is VP at S2-S4 via WBCQ, varying audibly with BFO. Contrary to Ivo`s guess that this was not on in our mornings. Supposedly it`s 24 hours, filling all time not already committed to other programming (and subject to preëmption for special bookings). Much weaker than e.g. 9315 Tinian: see TIBET [non]. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 9315, Feb 20 at 1525, English clip about high blood pressure, then back to Tibetan, for it`s RFA via TINIAN this hour only (earlier via Tajikistan). Strangely, HFCC as of Feb 16 still does not show any broadcasts on 9315, while Aoki says 9315 for this started November 11! Maybe that`s why no ChiCom jamming is to be heard? Noted as much stronger signal than 9329.92v-CUSB, Brother HyStairical via WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALASKA. The first HAARP test for 0300-0340 UT Feb 20 was a bust here, as a lightning storm was hitting us, so antennas and computers disconnected. Another one was scheduled 24 hours later, Feb 21, on ``2.8 and 3.3 MHz``. Closest I could come were two S7 carriers drifting slowly downward from 3295 and 2810 as of 0305, reaching 3262 and 2787 by 0340 or so --- but this is not what HAARP was supposed to be doing, a repeating 10-minute program including music; so I conclude these must have been generated within the NRD-545. I often encounter birdies on the lower SW frequencies, but ignore them as soon as I hear the drift. Kept checking closer to 3300 and 2800 but nothing heard during this span. Reports of what others were getting:
More to come UT Feb 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** ALGERIA [non]. 9710.00, Feb 20 at 2129, Qur`an at S3-S4. It`s RTA via FRANCE, also during the previous hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Feb 20 at 2127 tuneby, surprised to hear English from VOG, but I know it can`t last. A guy with Scottish(?) accent is talking about the Greek people, interviewed by a woman also in English. I have the impression he may be a second-generation emigrant. 2128 she switches to Greek presumably explaining what they were talking about rather than a verbatim translation. Do not to expect the English segment to recur at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11868.40 & 11351.60, Feb 20 at 2120, approx. centers of distorted S2 spurblobs, enough modulation on the upper one to match it to the Chinese from MWV 11610 tuned on aux receiver G8, while 11610 is S9-S7 on the JRC. Plus and minus 258.4 kHz: so what is significance of that figure?? Too bad that their newish Continental would be emitting these parasites. Fortunately, nothing is scheduled on 11865 or 11870 at this time, but 11351 is an aero mobile service channel. Now to look for more at similar displacements from all other MWV frequencies, but for only 57 minutes each (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15529.97, Feb 20 at 2113, an S4 signal where there should not be one, so my ears perk up for another Station YHWH appearance, since I had previously heard him this time of day on the 19mb (15300) --- fades up a bit to S8, and yes, it`s Martin K. Elliott with his usual shtick, ``breaking the spell of Satan --- Christianity, greatest hoax ever``, Still going at 2141 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120-AM, Feb 21 at 0333, Qur`an at S8-S9, better signal and modulation than usual but intermittent co-channel but LSB QRhaM upon Radio Hargeisa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.131-AM, Mon Feb 20 at 2140, WBCQ with continuous disco/rock music, no announcements until 2159 ID and 2200 into the `Remnant Ministry` pushing Yahwahism, sponsored by gold-pushers Financial Survival, which is the show itself missing from previous hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 6855, Feb 21 at 0030, WRMI is dead air again like 24 hours earlier when Xmas Radio was not to be heard. Nor is anything else to be heard now, including previously carried Slovakia in English. BUT --- I can hear light pulse jamming on 6855, first time for that. Did Jeff put some Cuban exile program on 6855 sometime? Not that I am aware of. 

Now, 9955 is buried in a wall-of-noise, vs Radio Libertad, unlike 24 hours earlier on Sunday until 0030 with `Trova Libre`. I`ve notified Jeff White about the dead air and the new jamming threat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Feb 20 at 2118, WTWW-3 is AWOL, no Bibling now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 13 - 19 February 2017

Solar activity was at very low levels with only weak background
flare activity observed. An 11 degree long filament eruption,
centered near N08E02, was observed in SDO/AIA 193 imagery beginning
around 19/0525 UTC. A faint CME was observed off the NE limb,
observed in LASCO C2 imagery, at around 19/0648 UTC. WSA-Enlil
analysis indicated a possible glancing blow at Earth mid to late on
22 Feb. No other activity was observed. 

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 13-14 Feb with moderate levels observed on 15-19 Feb. 

Geomagnetic field activity was at quiet levels on 13-15 Feb, quiet
to isolated unsettled to active levels on 16 Feb, quiet to active
levels on 17-18 Feb and quiet to unsettled levels on 19 Feb. A
recurrent, positive polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS)
became geoeffective early on 17 Feb affecting the geomagnetic field
through late on 19 Feb. During this period, solar wind speeds
generally ranged from 500-600 km/s, total field Bt peaked at 13 nT
early on 17 Feb while the Bz component reached a maximum southward
extent of -8 nT early on 17 Feb. Phi angle was in a predominately
positive orientation. 

FORECAST OF SOLAR AND GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY 20 FEBRUARY - 18 MARCH 2017

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels with a chance
for isolated C-class activity throughout the period. 

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to be at high levels on 20-27 Feb and 01-13 Mar. Normal to
moderate levels are expected for the remainder of the outlook
period. 

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach G2 (Moderate)
geomagnetic storm levels on 28 Feb and G1 (Minor) storm levels on 24
Feb, 01-02 Mar and again on 16 Mar due to recurrent CH HSS
influence. Active geomagnetic field activity is expected on 23 and
25 Feb, 03-05 Mar and 17 Mar due to CH HSS influence. Isolated
active conditions are likely on 22 Feb due to a glancing blow from
the 19 Feb CME. Quiet to unsettled activity is expected for the
remainder of the period under a nominal solar wind regime.

Glenn Hauser logs February 19-20, 2017


** BRAZIL. 11780 & 6180, Feb 20 at 0013 check, RNA/RNB still AWOL from both frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.08, Feb 20 at 0036, R. Aparecida has varied up to here during Portuguese talk, and frequency is also unstably varying slightly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Feb 20 at 1521, CHR, Trenton Military, ``no report received`` from nearby Ottawa, and Toronto! ID still giving wrong local timecheck as ``1420 zulu``, on to successful aviation weather as of 1500Z for Calgary, Cold Lake (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.17, Feb 20 at 0018, weak music vs ``running water`` ute QRM which fires irregularly. At least this is before Romania blox Alcaraván Radio from 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 87.73 MHz-AM, Feb 20 at 1410, turn on the YB-400 to one of the memories I use for internal FM feeding, and what do I hear? Spanish, from Radio Habana Cuba, soon confirmed as such by // 11760 with an echo on the R-75. Must be a mixing product overload between a local signal and a super-strong RHC SW frequency, and my first computation nails it: 87.73 plus 15.37 = 103.1, KOFM Enid. First I`ve noted this kind of thing on the YB-400 with some internal wire clipped onto the whip antenna (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 45, 42, 38, 11, Feb 20 at 1530, Bad DTV signals register thanks to area tropo across central OK extending into KS and TX, per Bill Hepburn`s map for 1500 UT. I sit on 38 hoping it will break thru, but not; probably the OETA translator in Ponca City, K38AK-D, altho my antenna is not pointed that way.

BTW, concerning OETA not having to repack, but losing translators above channel 37, Mark Norman`s reply to me about unsolid reception of KETA-13 in Enid, compared to KOCO-7: W9Wi.com shows twice the power on KOCO, 101 vs 50 kW from KETA, HAATs 370 and 462m respectively. It could also be that my antennas provide less gain at the hi end of VHF compared to the lo end of hiband. The higher frequency should also require more precise aiming. So KETA should at least double its power rather than forcing fringe viewers to improve antennas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, Feb 20 at 1520, RSO is S9-S7 with Qur`an, so certainly on and propagating today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PITCAIRN. Tnx to Richard Allen in Perry OK, for a tip, I hear VP6EU on 21283-USB, Feb 20 at 1557, German accent, working Europeans only such as IK4GRO, LX1EA and a DF7, in no hurry to utter own callsign until hourtop 1600. Says is listening 5-15 kHz up. Had ACI from CO6AZE calling CQ on 21281-USB. You might think this is a bit early for a Pacifican to be propagating on 15m, but the island is on UT -8 just like the North American west coast. (Hmmm, VP6 used to be Barbados).

Richard was also hearing VP6EU yesterday at 1529-1722 on 21222-USB. He refers to: "Pitcairn DXpedition 2017", website is 
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.92v-CUSB, Feb 20 at 1525, Brother Scare is VP at S2-S4 via WBCQ, varying audibly with BFO. Contrary to Ivo`s guess that this was not on in our mornings. Supposedly it`s 24 hours, filling all time not already committed to other programming (and subject to preëmption for special bookings). Much weaker than e.g. 9315 Tinian: see TIBET [non]. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 9315, Feb 20 at 1525, English clip about high blood pressure, then back to Tibetan, for it`s RFA via TINIAN this hour only (earlier via Tajikistan). Strangely, HFCC as of Feb 16 still does not show any broadcasts on 9315, while Aoki says 9315 for this started November 11! Maybe that`s why no ChiCom jamming is to be heard? Noted as much stronger signal than 9330.92v-CUSB, Brother HyStairical via WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday February 20 at 0030 on WBCQ 9329.86v-CUSB, JBA, having faded down severely since 0015. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 20 at 0402 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.8 --- during a thunderstorm here as I briefly plug in the antenna, and the computer remains off as precaution. Miss confirming the following 0430 on WRMI 9955 either way, but am confident it was aired. Next:

** U S A. 6855, Feb 19 at 2359, I`m set for the new entry on the WRMI skedgrid for UT Monday 0000-0100, `Christmas R.` After an eastern European song // 5850, a Rudy Espinal ID, from 0000 UT Feb 20 on 6855 only: DEAD AIR. (5850 // 11580 go to Slovakia in Slovak; 0030 English). Further chex thru 0045 find 6855 still open carrier. Maybe, next week we`ll find out what Christmas Radio is all about, as February is ending? 

No! Altho not yet on the air, it is already on the Programming page:

``Countdown2.Christmas Radio --- Since November, 2014, Countdown2.Christmas Radio has been a home for those who know the world would be a better place if the Christmas spirit ruled hearts year-round. Broadcasting Christmas music 24 hours a day (every day of the year) via its web site (http://c2c.audio), TuneIn, iTunes, Nobex, iPhone and Android apps (and more), Countdown2.Christmas Radio is proud to extend its reach through shortwave radio on WRMI.
 
Tune in weekly for a live broadcast with Alan and various other members of the Fahrner family; and join in the Christmas cheer with the likes of Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Julie Andrews, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, and all your other Christmas music favorites! 0000 UTC Monday on 6855 kHz``

Well, I am an advocate for MUCH LESS Xmas music in October-December, but not necessarily 30 minutes a week elsewhen, certainly not 24/7!

7730, Feb 20 at 0009, WRMI with a preacher, undermodulated, so WOR is not the only show so affected on this transmitter.

9955, Feb 20 at 0024, this WRMI with romantic song in Spanish and NO jamming! It`s `Trova Libre`, scheduled UT Mon 0000-0030. So the DentroCuban Jamming Command must be paying some attention, as it`s wall-of-noise jamming during this hour Tue-Sat for Radio Libertad --- can`t allow advocating any freedom for the oppressed Cuban masses!

From what the WRMI Programming page says about TL, [sic: unaccented], it isn`t exactly apolitical:

** U S A. 9329.86v-CUSB, varying audibly on the BFO as I try to measure it, Feb 20 at 0005, WBCQ with a disjointed discussion of the DC Women`s March about trans-genders. I didn`t think this would be Overcomer, but nothing shows on the WBCQ program schedule until WOR at 0030. This is axually stronger than 7490.07 with `Le Show`, measured at 0032 during an S9 song, but that carrier is rippling, unstable. By 0016, 9330 into deep fades, and stays down, also 7490. Third WBCQ, 5129.82 remains S9+20 vs greater storm noise on lower band, with Twilight Zone music; that would be `GRITS Radio` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs February 19, 2017


** BRAZIL. 11780 & 6180, Feb 19 at 0729, for the fourth night in a row, no signals from RNB/RNA. We still await any news about what has caused this absence; Brazilian DXers are not discussing it on the radioescutas yg with 1380 other members. Perhaps they overlook anything in English? 6180 does have a JBA carrier from alguma coisa at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 3344.869, Feb 19 at 1345, JBA carrier on signature off-frequency of RRI Ternate. Confirmed regularly active at http://rri.jpn.org/ (as ``3345``) until sign-off close to 1500*. Sign-on times vary widely from as early as *1959 to as late as *2051. This is one of only three remaining active RRI tropical stations, the others being 3325 and 4870-. Ron Howard put it on 3344.85 until 1503* Jan 29. Walt Salmaniw reported 3344.867 on Jan 6. Last time I measured it was Sept 2, 2016 at 1234 on 3344.865 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, Feb 19 at 1411, no signal at all from RSO. It hasn`t been enough for easy listening in a long time, but if on, surely there would be a trace. Ivo`s reports indicate it is quite sporadic with English not always occupying this hour and only this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Feb 19 at 1407, music at S4-S6, so SIBC must be on late again, perhaps simulcasting Wantok FM. Ron Howard reported yesterday they were extending past 1200* again but not daily; on Feb 18 he says they ended modulation at 1314, dead air past 1608! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13557.539, Feb 19 at 1418, HIFER beacon sending MTI ID at very slow rate every 13.5 seconds or so, or slightly more than 4 times per minute. It`s from Stone Mountain, GA near Atlanta. Haven`t heard this one since Oct 14 at 1447 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 15670, Sun Feb 19 at 1406*, steady S9 open carrier goes off seconds after I tune in --- no doubt VOA Greenville testing for later Radiogram broadcast Sunday at 1930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday February 19 at 0437 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+20, at Nigeria item, 18 minutes into show, so started circa 0419. Ivo in Bulgaria confirms Sun Feb 19 at 1130 on HLR 9485-CUSB. Next:
Mon 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Wed 2200   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Something new at the WRMI skedgrid, a new entry in magenta called ``System E`` only for 0000-0100 on 6855: `Christmas R.` on UT Mondays, of all things; blanx for rest of week. Rest of the time, 6855 is still shown matching many of the other Systems on other frequencies. As of Jan 14, here`s what was on 6855 at 00-01:
0000-0030 System H AWR = 5950
0030-0100 System F Slovakia = 11580, 5850
This is a pre-log, I hope, if I can get it; otherwise will have to wait a week. Others please try it, too. I don`t notice anything else significantly changed in the non-9955 program grid, 
but monitoring has: Wolfgang Büschel reports a media program in Ukrainian or Russian at 0638 UT Sunday Feb 19 on 5850. I would guess that is the expanded to a semi-hour `Radio Panorama` in Russian, replacing World Music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15240, Sunday Feb 19 at 1641, no signal from WWRB with R. Munansi, while 15825 WWCR is poorly audible. Not heard since a JBA signal on Feb 4, so deleted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 15755, Feb 19 at 1407, S Asian song at S4-S6 with heavy flutter. HFCC B-16 shows since 30 Oct: 1300-1530 TWR via Tashkent, multilingual. But what is it, exactly? NOT in latest Aoki of Feb 18, nor in EiBi of Feb 7. Not in WRTH B-16 update version 2 (incorporating some of my correxions), either. Plowing thru the extremely complex TWR INDIA schedule in the WRTH 2017 itself, the only Sunday 1400+ transmission listed via Tashkent is Hindi on 7505, so perhaps 15755 is a replacement for that. The 7505 schedule showed 100 kW at 131 degrees, 1400-1415 Hindi daily except Awadhi on Wednesdays. Nor have I found 15755 in Ivo Ivanov`s reports (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 13680, Sunday Feb 19 at 1415, S4-S6 Voice of Hope - Africa but in American accent with a story about Galilee & Simon Peter`s doings. This weekend-only broadcast is now our best chance to hear it with the suspension of weekday mornings on 11680. 4965 & 6065 in the weekday evenings until 2200 are really too early for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6270.00-USB, Feb 19 at 0737, JBA 2-way, seems Italian. This is a legit ship communications frequency, channel 15 paired with 6321.0, per Kingenfuss of 2002y. When Cuba was on both 6060 and 6165, it would put a leapfrog on 6270, often checked but not heard lately, maybe not from same site to possiblize this any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9520.32-USB, Feb 19 at 0735, very poor 2-way signals in Spanish, INTRUDING (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 2001 UT February 19

Very Poor- S0

Meter Band Equivalents
Ham & SWL
160->   90
80->     75
60->     60
40->     49, 41
30->     31, 25
20->     22, 19
17->    16, 15
15->    13
12,10-> 11

Please keep in mind that this is a relatively simplified HF radio wave
propagation forecast, so as to keep it easily understandable by the average
radio enthusiast.

Globally HF radio wave propagation conditions are most evenly balanced
during the fall and spring equinoxes and most diametrically opposed during
the summer and winter solstices.

Conditions also change daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and by decade, as the
sun rises and sets at different times and at different angles from the
ecliptic, as well as by radio wave frequency. This is due to changes in the
maximum usable frequency (MUF), lowest usable frequency (LUF) and F layer
critical frequency (FoF2).

The D and E layers also come into play through RF radio wave signal
absorption and refraction. And then there is sporadic E (Es) radio wave
propagation that can really throw a wrench into the gears so to speak.

Things like sporadic E (Es) radio wave propagation and lightning storm
static can impact HF radio wave propagation in an unpredictable manner and
mostly bad.

Ongoing solar, space and geomagnetic weather goings on also impact HF radio
wave propagation conditions in a negative manner.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solar Space & Geomagnetic Weather Conditions On

Saturday February 18, 2017-

Solar activity was low.

Earth's magnetic field was active.

The three daily solar flux index (SFI) numbers were 75.9 76.6 76.8.

The official daily sunspot number (SSN) was 23.

Sunspot group #12636 was located near N11E17 with a simple beta magnetic
signature.

A newly emerged but as of yet unnumbered sunspot group is located near
S03E76 with a simple alpha class magnetic signature.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 2017 there were 11 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of 0.
Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately three more
years, +/- one year, seeing daily SSN's of 0 occurring now is unusually
early.

In 2016 there were 32 days with a daily sunspot number (SSN) of 0.
Considering that solar minimum won't occur for approximately three more
years, seeing daily SSN's of 0 occurring now is unusually early.

As we move forward towards the next solar minimum between solar cycle #24
and #25 the number of days with a 0 daily SSN will steadily increase.
Eventually every day for many many many months will see a 0, the big goose
egg.

In 2008 I fore casted solar cycle 24 to be the weakest in the past 100 years
and that forecast verified. I also fore casted that solar cycle 25 would be
virtually non existent, similar to the Dalton type solar minimum that
occurred in the early 1800's. It will probably be very difficult to
determine when solar cycle 24 ended and solar cycle 25 began.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No earth directed solar flares occurred.

No earth directed coronal mass ejections (CME) occurred.

No earth directed collapsing magnetic filament eruptions occurred.

The twenty four hour period three hour interval planetary K index (Kp) was
at active to quiet geomagnetic conditions of 4 4 2 2 1 2 3 3.

The Kp geomagnetic indices are-
0-2- quiet
3- unsettled
4- active
5- minor geomagnetic storming
6- moderate
7- strong
8- severe
9- extreme
10- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.

The maximum and minimum planetary A index (Ap) ranged between 27 and 4,
which was at active to quiet geomagnetic conditions.

The Ap geomagnetic indices are-
0-7- quiet
8-15 unsettled
16-29- active
30-49- minor geomagnetic storm
50-99- major
100-400- severe
>401- our atmosphere just got cooked off like on Mars and we are all dead.

The daily averaged background x-ray flux was B1.0, which was the highest
daily value in many months.

The daily averaged vertical component (Bz) of earth's magnetic field
was -1.5 nT south.

The maximum and minimum Dst ranged between +2 and -27.

No energetic proton events greater than 10 MeV (10+0) occurred.

The maximum and minimum solar wind speed was 540 and 454. km/s.

There was a recurrent trans equatorial earth facing coronal hole #790
(#786). During it's previous passage across the earth facing side of the sun
it produced minor (Kp-4) negative impacts on HF radio wave propagation.

There was a recurrent trans equatorial (geoeffective) directly earth facing
coronal hole #791 (#787). During it's previous passage across the earth
facing side of the sun it produced minor (Kp-4) negative impacts on HF radio
wave propagation.

GENERAL GUIDELINES CONCERNING CORRELATION OF PROPAGATION INDICES TO ACTUAL
HF PROPAGATION CONDITIONS-

NOTE!!!  The propagation indices "interpretations" are my personal
intellectual property. Therefore the radio wave propagation indices
interpretations contained herein is copyrighted © 1988-2017 by Thomas F.
Giella, W4HM, all rights reserved. Reproduction of information herein is
allowed without permission in advance as long as proper credit is given.

All 14 of the following indices have to occur as described below in order to
see the best global high frequency radio wave propagation possible.
Something that happens rarely.

1.) Dropping geomagnetic field indices numbers are better, Kp of 0 best.

2.) A daily sunspot number of 150 or higher, 200 or higher best.

3.) A daily sunspot number of greater than 100 for routine stable formation
of the E Valley/F Layer ducting mechanism.

4.) Previous 24 hour Ap index under 10, fewer than 7 for several days
consecutively are best.

5.) Previous 3 hours Kp index fewer than 3 for mid latitude paths, fewer
than 2 for high latitude paths, 0 for several days consecutively is best.

6.) Energetic protons no greater than 10 MeV (10+0).

7.) Background x-ray flux levels greater than B1 for several days
consecutively, greater than C1 best.

8.) No current STRATWARM alert.

9.) Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) Bz with a (positive number) sign,
indicates a lesser chance of high latitude path aurora
absorption/unpredictable refraction or scattering of medium frequency RF
signals, when the Kp is above 3.

10.) A -10 or better towards a positive number Dst index during the recovery
time after a geomagnetic storm, as related to the equatorial ring current. A
positive number is best.

11.) Rising positive T index number. The T Index tracks with the F2 layer
critical frequency (foF2) and sunspot number (SSN) and indicates the
capability of the F2 layer to refract RF signals.

12.) Galactic cosmic rays decrease to -3 units below zero and trending
towards zero.

13.) Energetic electron flux levels no greater than 2 MeV (2+0).

14. A solar wind speed of less than 300 km/s for several days consecutively.
