Glenn Hauser logs 19-20-21 & 21 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 15550-, May 21 at 1230, fair signal with gospel huxter in English, consecutive translations to Chinese, as this is scheduled 1215-1245 from RBA Kununurra. Slightly on the lo side compared to WEWN 11550, Cuba 9550 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 12085, May 21 at 1234, R. Australia is back on during TV news hour, much stronger than // and QRMed 12065 which is still colliding with Kamalabad, Iran in Dari at 1150-1450; worse: 12065 is the RA frequency aimed into Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 9725, May 21 at 0541, R. Aparecida religious music via RB2, a very slight echo behind original R. Aparecida on 9630 at about equal fair levels; also on 11855, but not on 11935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 5910, May 21 at 1137, several English expressions, such as ``Communist Party``, ``1945, Potsdam`` + Spanish ``Alemania``, fair signal. Must be Filipino, as scheduled this semihour from CRI Beijing site. Where would Tagalog be without such heavy English and Spanish input? Which has hardly been reciprocated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 13850, May 21 at 0535, no signal from R. Cairo, tho plenty signals from Europe are in on band; seems another of their useless transmitters has crashed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [non]. 17660, May 21 at 1220, RFI in French with good signal, the SSOB by far, as the East Turkistanis are hardly there until later in the hour on 17560, 17630, 17650. Yet this declines to very poor by 1256. Discussion of Syrian cinema, in Paris? occasional comments in Spanish translated. HFCC shows this hour is registered both via South Africa and Madagascar, but no echo, so which is it? Aoki and EiBi pick the latter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. Correcting previous report; tnx to Thorsten Hallmann:
9689.9, good // 7255- [NOT 7275 as mistyped in original report: must have been thinking of an extinct Nigerian regional], May 19 at 0601, fair signal in Hausa, so 3 VON transmitters still on.
15120-, May 21 at 0531, VON with very good signal, introducing show `Moving On` about Nigerian, African, and rest-of-world issues, but first some music. A bit overmodulated, and carrier wobbling as usual slightly on the low side. Not up to check 7 & 9 MHz after 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 2899.76 approx., May 21 at 1143 UT, KWHW 2 x harmonic is still here, but much weaker than before, with music; and no better at 1243 & 1345 UT chex. I remeasure it compared to WWV at 1243. So our fun with this is ending as the Altusians are obviously working on the harmonic but have not yet eliminated it completely. I wish I could hear what 1450- has been sounding like locally, if anything (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [and non]. 13800, May 21 at 0534, R. Dabanga via VATICAN, good signal, no jamming audible; 11645, May 21 at 0537, R. Dabanga via VATICAN, fair signal and 1 kHz DSB modulated tone jammer is still on 11650, weaker (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1774 monitoring: first SW airing confirmed after 1130 UT Thursday May 21 on WRMI 9955, and with Cuban pulse jamming: tnx a lot, Arnie! Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1020, May 21 at 0601 UT, Radiovisión Cristiana multi-station ID including KCKN Roswell NM. Still putting way too much signal into what is supposed to be notch toward KDKA, but at least it`s only a SAH away from KOKP nulled from here as much as possible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [non]. 15370, May 21 at 1240, station in Russian and bits of Italian mentioning Krystiani, poor signal. I`ll bet it`s VR: yes, Russian via IBB Tinang, PHILIPPINES site during this semihour, violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11410-SSB, May 21 at 1254, very intermittent talk somewhat melodic, very poor, presumed the Indonesian QSO pirate(s) which infest the lower 11.4s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ALBANIA. 9850, May 20 at 0123, R. Tirana IS at good level, 45-53 dbU on the PL-880 with short random wire, and with low-audible self-imposed het; maybe some lite SSB QRM as I heard once before from 9851-LSB, but unable to copy anything now with big Tirana signal a kHz away (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 12085, May 19 at 1336, no signal from RA! But still on 12065 with CCI, and // 9580 clear with African music at the moment on `The Daily Planet`. 12085 is on the 30 degree beam across the Pacific to Alaska, but also reaches rest of North America well. Wonder what happened? Ron Howard says it was missing both May 19 and 20. I see it is still on the RA website schedule at 09-21 UT. It`s the same antenna/transmitter as on 15240 at 21-09; is that missing too? No, May 21 at 0317 check. Every bit counts with only three transmitters left at its disposal. You`d think if one of them failed, an idle one could be upfired. I wonder if this is anything to do with the strange noise I was hearing around (or out of?) 12085 on May 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1774, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070+, May 20 at 0117, R. Cairo only poor signal; at first I thought it was absent, then Arabic music, suptorted modulation. 33-42 dBU on the PL-880 with short random wire.
11935+, May 20 at 0117, next R. Cairo frequency is at very good level, 46-63 dBU on the PL-880, but it`s open carrier/dead air instead of Spanish
9965, May 20 at 0118, R. Cairo Arabic service is off!
9315, May 20 at 0122, R. Cairo, YL in Spanish, hum and some distortion, 40-52 dbU on the PL-880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [non]. 17790, May 20 at 1716, R. Africa Network on WRMI is in some tonal African language, Hausa maybe? I`ve yet to learn any keywords to recognize it. Think I`ve only heard them in French before, besides predominant English. No such thing as a program schedule from Radio Africa. By 1732 back into English for an hymn (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE. 21580, May 20 at 1715, RFI with good signal in French;
21690, May 20 at 1715, RFI with good signal in Luso Portuguese. There is only a 5 degree difference in azimuth between them to Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1030, May 20 at 0612, just as I tune by, ``y 93.9 FM, Exa FM``. WRTH, Cantú and IRCA show the only Exa on 1030 is XEMPM, 10/1 kW El Fuerte, or Los Mochis, which is a hotspot for MW DX to here. Except all show its XHMPM on FM is 98.9, but I sure thought they said 93.9. (Pronounced ``eksa`` -- you can never be quite sure about x`s in Mexican). Found website which confirms it`s still 98.9: http://www.exafm.com/#!/losmochis/home
I was referring to a printout of the Cantú list I saved on Feb. 19, and now on May 21, http://www.mexicoradiotv.com is ``temporarily unavailable`` says Network Solutions! Fred was reported to be about to retire and looking for someone else to take over the site. I hope this temp/un is a good rather than bad sign (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 15120-, May 19 at 0600, VON news in English, distorted modulation, and carrier wobbling, but good signal level, better than 15580 VOA Botswana.
9689.9, good // 7275-, fair signal in Hausa, so 3 VON transmitters still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 2899.75, May 19 at 1327 UT, a bihour after sunrise, KWHW Altus quite audible on second harmonic, as ``sports from the Sports Leader``, ``Go, Bulldogs!``, and lots of local sponsors named; 1330 UT joining Randy Renner on the Oklahoma News Network (out of OKC) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1774, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 104.5, May 20 at 0134 UT, ``Classic Rock Station 104-5``, i.e. the 250-watt OKC translator K283BW, carrying what used to be KRXO on 107.7 main channel, presumably still now demoted there to an IBOC subchannel, but not mentioned. Anyhow I was looking for the new 62 kW but slightly further Mooreland station recently discovered, KZZW; not heard even from my second floor. Was it just testing with PTA before? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 20 at 0110, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until cutoff at 0111:58.5*, which is 61.5 seconds later than last log a dekaday ago on May 10 at 0110:57*, i.e. averaging 6.15 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PUNTLAND. 13800, May 19 at 1332, JBA carrier from presumed R. Puntland; and a reduced one at that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3185, May 19 at 0603, WWRB is on with the all-knowing screen reader of Brother Scare. Ops seem back to more or less normal, 9370 still on with BS at 0127 May 20, much stronger than the other transmitter on 3185 with other gospel huxters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 20 at 0114, just before SLBC carrier comes on, the frequency is hit by a couple of ute QRM BLAAPs following 3 beeps; then theme music is JBA, as is the mistimesignal ending at 0115:19 which I have come to consider nominal for them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1773 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday May 20 after 1315 on WRMI 9955. Also confirmed Wednesday May 20 at 2100 on webcast of WBCQ 7490, untried on SW which is usually inaudible this early in summer. WOR 1774 completed in time for first airing Thursday at 1130:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11920, May 20 at 0132, WRMI with gospel huxter in Spanish, so presumably Fámily Radio has finally replaced fill music after a triweek or so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
