Glenn Hauser logs Sept. 7-8, 2013

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Sept 8 at 1359, Bangladesh Betar is JBA with IS, timesignal ending at 1359:51 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA [non]. 4717-, Sept 8 at 0055, no signal from Yura, presumed off (early on UT Sundays?). Two nights ago it was the best South American on band, and now there are numerous other weak carriers so propagation is working (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6135-, Sept 8 at 0058, the TADIL-A bonker is back, weakly QRMing R. Santa Cruz on its lo side. A stronger one still around 4865, which is where the 6135 one was thought to have moved (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11815, Sept 8 at 0550, songs fading up and down, very poor to fair peaks, 0554 announcement but can`t tell if it`s in Brazuguese. Anyhow presumed R. Brasil Central, while RNA is inbooming on 11780. Suspect RBC isn`t always on this late; maybe extended for UT Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 8 before 1300:
11555, fair at 1237 but mixed with CNR1 jamming; no WEWN 11550 to bother. Rest are CNR1 only:
15970, very poor at 1356
16160, fair at 1358; none in the 17s, 14s, 13s, 12s
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 5970, Sept 8 at 0058, R. Itatiaia, Brasil in the clear with no Cuban pulse jamming unlike the last binite; however, stray pulses sporadically around other bandparts, such as 5985, 6040-6055, etc. 
6125, Sept 8 at 0544, RHC English is undermodulated with intermittent noise bursts, vs Arnie in a non-DX segment.
5745, Sept 8 at 1144, lite pulse jamming vs nothing, as the DentroCuban Jamming Command reminds us it is all set should R. Martí ever resume this frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUAM. 5765, Sept 8 at 1143, still hearing RTTY here instead of USB AFN broadcast. Wolfgang Büschel was also hearing RTTY around 13364, Sept 8 at 0720 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRELAND [non]. 17820, Sept 8 after 1300, noticed some signal here but did not pursue it. Later heard from Wolfgang Büschel, that the RTÉ annual hurling special was on via Woofferton UK, supposedly instead of originally publicized 17725, but he heard it there too, and starting half an hour earlier than 1330. Maybe they`ll get it all straightened out for the football final two weeks hence? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH. 6270, Sept 8 at 1145, fair signal but lo modulation in talk, unID language. Nothing in HFCC, but EiBi has it: MND Radio at 1100-1140. Plenty of NK jammers mid-4 and higher on 6 MHz but not here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 15540, Sept 7 around 2030, R. Kuwait English service with rock music, 2050 news, but about to fade out. Checking this because on the day before, Sept 6, Manikant Lodaya, Karnataka, South India, wrote, ``Dear Glenn, Radio Kuwait heard on 15515 at 1800 today instead of the usual 15540. Frequency change or punching error? Icom 751 Dipole antenna`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 540, Sept 8 at 1149 UT, immediate ID upon tune-in as ``La Ranchera de Paquimé`` on AM and FM, back to music. That`s XETX, 1000/250 watts in Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, per Cantú (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 560, Sept 8 at 1151 UT, after song lyrix ``alma de niña, cuerpo de diosa``, ID mentions 93-3, so the only match there in Cantú is:
560 XEXZ Lupe + FM 93.3 Zacatecas, Zac. 5,000 1,000
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 570, Sept 8 at 0520 UT, Mexican music is dominating, southwest-ish, then PAN ad, next break 0524 a promo for Monterrey Televisión, so it`s XEBJB, supposedly 500 watts night per WRTH 2013 and IRCA Mexican Log 2012 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 870, Sept 8 at 1206 UT tune-in, talk in Indian language, but pronounces XETAR in Spanish; soon live YL DJ back in Spanish mentions La Voz de la Sierra Tarahumara, which is in Guachochi, Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1180, Sept 8 at 1218 UT, pause in music for nothing but a ``6:17`` TC in Spanish, with N/S Omaha nulled, but avoiding IBOC noise from E/W KFAQ 1170 Tulsa only by off-tuning to 1178 or 1179. In Cantú there are two in the UT-6 zone:
1180 XEUBS Radio UABCS        La Paz, B.C.S.     10,000 D
1180 XEJK  Ke buena + FM 95.3 Cd. Delicias, Chih. 5,000 1,500
Likely the latter as it unseemed non-commercial. Soon fades out (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7375, UT Sunday Sept 8 at 0054, The Mighty KBC, good with rock music on new fall/winter frequency ex-9925 as of last week, via Nauen, GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, Sept 8 at 1156 UT, WKY OKC is already in Sunday-morning English talkshow instead of Indomable Spanish music; I thought English started at 1200. Guest from Paragon Fine Homes emphasizing safe rooms vs tornadoes, and homes made of concrete instead of wood for durability, no termite threat either. Hard to tell if this is a genuine pubaffs show or infomercial; the host is so enthusiastic about the product. Continues past 1200, and at next check 1212 another topic, 6-week seminar on relationships at Chapel Hill UM Church (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1300, Sept 8 at 1222 UT, KAKC Tulsa Sunday-morning pubaffs ghetto show with guest from the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, about their Restaurant Week promotion; see TulsaRW on Facebook. Then I am hearing the same show but far from synchrony, on co-owned otherwise sports stations, 1430 KTBZ. THEN, it sounds like the same show yet again and unsynchronized on 1170 KFAQ, which is not co-owned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** PERU. 5980, Sept 8 at 0050, R. Chaski carrier, until cutoff at 0103:34.5* which is 5.5 seconds later than yesterday. My streetlite is now firing on at *0058, clear sky at sunset. Startup makes a brief RF noise burst, not always audible depending on frequency tuned, QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 4755-USB, Sept 8 at 0055, Air Force MARS with AFA4RA NCS calling other stations. Googling on that callsign finds a cache:
``I removed Rick Arnett, AFA4RA, from the position of Texas Emergency Coordinator effective 25 Mar 06. The 3661 is attached and will be mailed to Rick on Monday. Any communication that would be of interest to the Texas EC, should be directed to me, and Jeff Salmons, AFF4E, during the time it takes me to appoint a new Texas EC. Don Roberson, AFF4TX / AFA4TH USAF MARS, Texas State MARS Director Posted 03/26/2006`` and:
``Rick Arnett, AFA4RA, has resigned and is no longer a MARS member.
Don Roberson, AFF4TX / AFA4TH USAF MARS, Texas State MARS Director
Posted 04/25/2006`` --- So maybe AFA4RA belongs to someone else now, or he`s back? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1685 monitoring: confirmed Saturday 2330v on WTWW-2 9930, in progress at 2343 and over before 2400. Next airing, however, UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW-1 5830 was instead dead air past 0430. (Modulation had resumed at 0536 check.) I`m told WOR did go out on the SFAW satellite feed. Possibly another try Sunday 2330v on 9930 or Monday 0000v on 5085, but did not show there last week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Sept 8 at 0054, Ted Randall advertising hamtest online on WTWW-2; apparently his show continues at uncertain hourspan instead of Brother Scare early UT Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 9975, Sept 8 at 0052 a JBA carrier, so maybe CVC Tashkent already on for 0100 broadcast, as KVOH test carrier not on as early tonight as it was 24 hours earlier. It is on at next check 0101, very good signal as before, praise music in English. Again holds up very well at later spotchex; 0350 brief carrier break, fading down a bit and back up; usual Spanish and English requests for reports, FCC licensing, praise music in both languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7555, Sept 8 at 0546, WEWN Spanish is still missing, clearing for the French ute noise on hi side; at 0548, // 11870 WEWN is also absent, but English is there on 11520. Next check at 1236 Sept 8, still AWOL from 11550 and 12050, but both are back by 1354 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
As in previous report, Spanish went off both frequencies at 1700 Sept 7 after several hours of dead air, so apparently stayed off all afternoon and night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 690, UT Sunday Sept 8 at 0502 UT, KGGF Coffeyville KS is going from ``Battle Hymn of the Republic`` to Taps at sign-off (but not carrier-off) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1270, Sept 7 at 1756 UT, daytime groundwave on caradio, I am hearing two stations mixing in Spanish, one talk, one music, no English. Parked on the north side of Enid, while previously on the west side I was hearing Spanish music and English talk, the latter leading to KSCB Liberal KS. So now it must be KRVT Claremore/Tulsa, and KFLC Fort Worth TX instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [non?]. 15570, Sat Sept 7 after 2030, good signal from Vatican Radio in Brazuguese, 2058 closing as ``serviço brasileiro``, off at 2100*. This is strange, not on the schedules. 15570 supposedly lasts only until 1930 in Spanish to Central Africa, per EiBi, and that is only on Saturdays. EiBi shows the only VR transmissions at 2030/2100 as French to CAf on 11625, and Arabic at 2040-2100 on 5980, 9645, 7250, 13765. Rather odd time for Brasil, too. WRTH 2013 indicated the only Portuguese to SAm was 0030 on 7305, long since deleted. Maybe this was a special broadcast, but did not seem to be; by Sept 8 check, the VR website has deleted any specials pertaining to the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 13845, Sept 8 at 1235, surprised to hear something in Vietnamese atop DGS on weak WWCR. HFCC, Aoki and EiBi all show nothing but WWCR at any time on 13845. Or was it Cambodian? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
