** CANADA. Fitful Es again this time from north, NTSC Channel A2, UT June 15 at 0009 fades in with DQ ad in English; MUF pokes up occasionally, sometimes with CCI but never very strong or above ch 2. 0010 English dialog and almost sure the GLOBAL bug is in LR; in and mostly out during the following hour; at 0133 I see SHAW on the screen which again correlates with Global, i.e. usual CKND-TV-2 Minnedosa, Manitoba. Andy Reid points out CRTC info that they have two years from now to move to DTV on channel 9, but probably won`t take that long (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake jamming, June 15:
12100, fair at 1234 vs CODAR. New frequency! Nothing at all in Aoki to account for this, not even a 100-watt SOH listing
13795, fair at 1242 and // 12100
CNR1 jammers instead of Firedrake, June 15:
11500, poor at 1237; not synchronized with 11785, 11825; none in 12s
13970, good at 1241
14700, good at 1244 with hets, local?
15800, good at 1244, also 1300 timesignal and modulation stops but carrier on until 1301:15* or so
16920, poor at 1245; none in the 17s
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9850, June 15 at 1220, RHC carrier with BFO on is wobbling slightly, and a few minutes later, especially during pauses can hear the rumble on the modulation in AM mode.
Situation at 1338 this Saturday June 15: 15230 is missing, but still on 15340, 17580 and 17730. At 1411, both 17580 and 17730 are still on, 15230 is barely audible, 15340 remains, but now 13780 is off. The four 25mb frequencies are still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420 & 15650, June 14 at 2320 check, VOG is still on with Greek talk, and JBA on 7475. It appears due to all the protests the government has backed off about abolishing ERT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, Saturday June 15 at 1353, in KBS World Radio `Listeners` Lounge`, Kevin O`Donovan, Farmington NM has already started his DX tips, but all we hear about are apps by RNZI, RFI, Argentina (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 990, June 15 at 0511 UT, no CBW but mix of two Spanish speaking stations; on top is KFCD TX which must be on day pattern, see U S A. Alternately fading up and down with XET up for a while as the 94-year-old DJ mentions this is his show #18,359, i.e. every night for over 50 years. His tunes and announcements are interspersed with automated time and temp chex, only 9 grados?! Got that wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, June 15 at 0057, R. Chaski carrier audible as usual with bits of modulation, especially after 0100 when 5990 CRI/Cuba and its splash go off; and Chaski cuts off at 0102:38.5* which is 10 seconds later than two nights ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 9490, Saturday June 15 at 1224, VOA Korean with music from the American songbook, as often heard on this service; 15775 is also modulating today following the fiasco yesterday of two sesquihours of dead air, and is running about 4 seconds ahead of 9490. 15775 is however synchronized with much weaker 7225. That fits because 7225 & 15775 are Tinang, PHILIPPINES, while 9490 is TINIAN, NMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1673 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 webcast and also presumably via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB which was audible poorly in noise level a bit earlier, WOR starting at 0138 UT Saturday June 15.
Next: Saturday 1730 on WRN via WRMI 9955; Sat 2329v on WTWW-2 9930; UT Sun 0400.5 on WTWW-1 5830; Sun 2330v on WTWW-2 9930. Also could appear any day any time after 1800 on 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Saturday June 15 at 1312, WTWW-3 is on and in Arabic today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Sat June 15 at 1301, WRMI with AWR Wavescan in progress, DX news voiced by Jeff White with some clips including PCJ as heard in India; XEOI back on 6010, but clip from webcast? Also historic clip of his Radio Earth from 1989y. Initially sufficient, soon fades to insufficient level; no jamming but usual RTTY on hi side --- what is it, anyway? EiBi lists lots of utes but not this. Also squeezed by something on 9950, presumably Nippon no Kaze via Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 960, June 15 at 0503-0505, mostly blues music in mix, presumably WABG Greenwood MS, during Fox-hole from local KGWA-960: no modulation and carrier remains weaker than usual, easier to null and hear other stations even outside of exact null. Also tonight there is hardly any T-storm noise, which occasionally happens during the summer, just too far away to bother much here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 990, Saturday June 15 at 0511, gospel(?) huxter in Spanish, well atop XET ``La T Grande`` de Monterrey; very strange: refers to Jewish-like stuff including ``sétimo día``, Shabat, Torah, Yahweh, Yeshua, Moshiach; frequent Bible/Torah citations, not only old testament such as Levítico, but also New, such as Mateo, Hechos. Must be some Messianic cult, ``Christian Jews`` --- but NEVER heard a mention of Jesucristo by name, altho several mentions of ``Los profetas``.
Was listening first on a fixed radio aimed north/south. Strangely, this was taking turns with XET fading in and out, quite rapidly. First one, then another. See MEXICO.
Switching to the DX-398 for some DFing, the religious station loops considerably east of XET, i.e. like SE (or NW), so can hardly be from Mexico too. I can still hear it with XET nulled. Still going past 0530, and at 0541 now there is background music as the preacher says he`s from Ciudad de Tehuacán, Puebla. Originally, or originating there now? There is certainly no 990 station in Puebla.
Dozed off thru hourtop, but awakened by horns blaring at 0615 and with a .mx website. No sign tonight of CBW, the usual competitor in the nightmiddle for 990 with XET, but now the religious station is usually atop. I figure it must be KFCD Farmersville, Texas, which is mostly religious but seldom audible at night, having cut from 7000 to 970 watts. This is one of the frequencies hijacked from original Wichita Falls KNIN to The Metroplex.
We find its website with program schedule at:
Showing not only Saturday, but every day:
12 AM - 7 AM Radio Kadosh [= 05-12 UT]
There is also a Radio Kadosh on Facebook, but apparently Brazilian;
another in Costa Rica. And a Stereo Kadosh in Santo Domingo, DR, with Bible quotation in Hebrew. Kadosh means holy or consecrated.
Altho KFCD is mostly Spanish and mostly religion, it`s ``multi-cultural`` so we find something else on their Sunday schedule at 20-01 UT Mondays, probably in Amharic or the like:
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm "Radio Mekete"
5:00 pm – 8:00 pm "Ethiopian Women Organization"
But why am I hearing KFCD so well now? NRC Pattern Book shows at night it all goes SE, while day pattern is NW/SE. Therefore, must now be on day pattern if not also day power. Homepage radio-locator.com map shows ``fringe coverage`` even past Oklahoma City in daytime. Maybe, but KTOK 1000 could be a bit of a problem around The Metro (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11870-11875 approx., strange loud fast pulsing noise, too narrow and fast for most OTH radars we hear, and unsounds like DRM either, June 14 at 1158 (date correct), cuts off for a second around 1159.4 but continues past 1200 until 1202:56* stops abruptly.
Only broadcasters registered around here are in HFCC: KNLS on 11870 before and after 1200, but that`s imaginary, not in EiBi and Aoki, which do show 11875 with CRI in Chinese via Kunming until 1157; Romania in analog German after 1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
