Glenn Hauser logs May 21-22-23 , 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 9580 // 12085 // much weaker 12065, Friday May 22 at 1317, RA is NOT playing classical music, but instead aboriginal music apparently from Darwin; 1344 hostess mentions `Saturday Night Country`, so playback by mistake 24 hours early?? Maybe same YL who does that show? (No: SNC is Catherine Britt). Her outro at 1355 mentions sources from Darwin, Sydney and Hobart, on `Like A Local`. NO, it`s `Live and Local`, as found on the A-Z roster of RA programs:
http://www.abc.net.au/local/sites/localradiomusic/
``Live and Local --- Each week, on Radio Australia, catch Live and Local with Fiona Wyllie featuring live performances and interviews with musicians from around the country``
It was more interviews than performances! Also says it`s originally on ABC Local Radio network, Saturdays at 8 pm, so this is still one night too early or six nights too late. As far as I can tell from previous weeks` tidbits, classical music is banned from this hour, ranging narrowly from country to rock.
Checking RA`s own program schedule, yes `L&L` has replaced `Keys to Music` Fridays at 13-14. Goodbye to token classical music appreciation hour! `Keys to Music` is still listed for Sundays at 18-19 (only) when we get hardly any SW reception (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 2749-USB, May 22 at 0452 UT, just as I tune in, voice transmission stops. According to http://www.dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm this was VCN in Rivière-au-Renard [Fox River], QC, with a weather broadcast which started at 0437 in English and French. Frequency is shared with three Nova Scotia stations at other hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 14870, May 22 at 1357, CNR1 jammer, fair with flutter
17200, May 22 at 1358, CNR1 jammer, fair with flutter; none in the 12s, 13s, 15s OOB, 16s, 18s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, May 22 at 0503, Avlis is on with fair signal in Greek, and I think I hear an ``Ertopen`` ID go by, which I supposed was passé, since regular ERT was revived as of May 11. Ivo Ivanov also reports ``ERT Open`` at 0645 on 9420 & 15630, but his clip contains no ID. The reopening is axually scheduled for May 25 per this via Mike Terry, dxldyg:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUATEMALA. 4055, May 22 at 0449, no signal from TGAV, Radio Verdad, normally on until about 0610v* except Mondays. I had just received this word from Dr. Édgar Amílcar Madrid: ``I will describe our transmitter troubles: I am transmitting with only one module on 300 watts power now. The transmitter is getting warmer than normal. The transmitter turns off by itself frequently`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Sporadic E analog TVDX May 22, all times UT:
1658 on 2, fade-in algo, graphic says $100,000 but that could mean pesos as well as dollars (normally abbr`d dlls in Mexican usage). Very little audio so not positive it`s Spanish instead of English off the back from any Canadian left; 6m Es map shows nothing but one little contact from TX to FL. Fades out by 1701, when I have to go out.
1903 on 2, I`m back to find lots of CCI, including Spanish audio, and also signs of video on 4. 6m map now shows only a couple paltry contacts, SoCal to NE Mexico and to NE New Mexico.
1913 on 2, now one is better and dominating, old movie/drama with continuous text bug in UR, probably TELEACTIVA = XEFB Monterrey but can`t read it to be sure. At 1919, actor wears a fedora and looks like Cantinflas in a scene with a child
1938 on 2, brief surge of stock report with grafix, presumably a different station, then mostly outfaded (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1210, May 22 at 0530 UT, weather from ``Today`s Country, 1210 KGYN``, then as if to reëmphasise it for us, multiple IDs with same slogan but different coverage segments, such as NE New Mexico, Canadian (TX NE panhandle town), etc. So now it`s pretty certain KGYN has abandoned the ``US Country`` branding, along with a switch of satellite music sources. Personally, I thought ``US Country`` had more class and a bit more individuality (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1650, May 22 at 0517 UT, KYHN Sallisaw (a.k.a. Fort Smith AR market), I`m accustomed to hearing `Red Eye Radio` and then the same thing a few seconds later on 1640 KZLS --- but not any more. KZLS is still with RER, but 1650 with something else, some even further far-right wacko; soon refers to Alex Jones, so I guess it`s his show with a substitute, and not // WWCR 4840. Since these are replays of earlier in the day anyway, not expected to match now. BTW, KYHN night signal is nowhere as strong as it was months ago, when I now suspect they were running 10 kW day power instead of 1 kW night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 2899.75, May 22 at 0451 UT, JBA carrier as I continue to check for the KWHW Altus second harmonic. At 1312 UT May 22, I can`t be sure even the JBA carrier is there anymore. Despite a ~6 day window May 14-19 when it was really radiating, I`m not aware of anyone DXing this except Dave Valko and myself (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES. 15620, May 22 at 1401, gamelan music mixed with Indonesish talk, giving phone(?) and SMS numbers with lots of ``nulls` = zeroes, poor signal. It`s FEBC in Javanese via Bocaue at 1400-1430 daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PUNTLAND. 13800, May 22 at 1314 and 1405, no signal from R. Puntland. Others have observed it`s on some days, off others, at least around the times we check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH AFRICA. 3320, May 22 at 0450, R. Sonder Grense is still in with poor signal in Afrikaans; by 0459, it`s upped to 7185 with fair signal, evidently news already started, defaulting to English for the expression ``corrupt officials`` of which I gather there are plenty in RSA, but not to be expressed in Afrikaans? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SWAZILAND. 4775.0, May 22 at 0454, songs, hymns? Poor signal vs CODAR and bonker! Surely it`s TWR, tho not exactly in accordance with their sked as in Aoki, showing German at 0400-0430 M-F, 0400-0500 Sat & Sun, and this is Fri. Maybe they leave transmitter on anyway during the break and/or back on with prélude before daily 0500-0800 English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1774 monitoring: confirmed Thursday May 21 at 2100 on WRMI 7570 (but not 15770). Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775, May 21 at 1934, surprised to find KVOH still on air, praise music in Spanish, with very good signal; normal closedown is 1900*. Recheck at 2001, now only pulsing noise is being transmitted. Perhaps some kind of test, or automation failure. Still no word from them on how the installation of another transmitter is going, nor on the Zambia project to reactivate the former CVC site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11520, May 22 at 1406, WEWN English is still on night frequency, Mo. Angelica rambling, VG signal here, unlike 15610 would be without any sporadic E boost; forgot to QSY at 1300? the Spanish pair are properly still on 11550 & 12050. 15610, BTW is supposed to change antennas from 355 to 40 degrees at 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1530, May 22 at 0523 UT, open carrier/dead air, loops ESE/WNW, and slightly on the lo side compared to stepping 10-kHz neighbor frequencies. Likely KXTD, 5 kW daytimer in Wagoner OK; or a known cheater normally with modulation, KVDW England AR, 2.5 kW daytimer; or KKHI Colorado Springs, which was also a big cheater under previous call KCMN, with 15000/15 watts. After a bit, Brother Scare becomes audible underneath, i.e. WCKY OH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

radioescutas@yahoo. 9850, May 23 at 0128, R. Tirana, good with its own low audible het (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070, May 23 at 0058, R. Cairo is open carrier/dead air, except for some hum, on good signal
11935, May 23 at 0058, R. Cairo also open carrier/dead air here: usually one of them mods something; ACI bleed from 11930 Cuban jammer against nothing
9315, May 23 at 0058, R. Cairo fair in music, Spanish, suptorted
9965, May 23 at 0059, R. Cairo, VG in Arabic, modulation mildly suppressed but not very distorted, plus whine (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 11890, May 23 at 0127, bit of Qur`an, then talk in presumed Kazakh from VIRI as scheduled 5 degrees from Sirjan at 0120-0220; poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 780, May 23 at 0122 UT, no signal from KSPI, 250 watt daytimer in Stillwater, which doesn`t have to go off until 0130 UT in May; 0145 UT in June and July. Yet another anomaly from this station. And no WBBM has faded in yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 23 at 0056, JBA carrier from R. Chaski with traces of modulation, until autocutoff at 0112:17*, which is 18.5 seconds later than three nights ago at 0111:58.5*, averaging 6.17 later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 7335, May 23 at 0100 tune in to RRI opening Romanian hour, including ``ora exacta`` (with a breve over the last a), but the 5 pips don`t end until 0100:30, exactly one semiminute late, so here`s another unexpected mistimesignal station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH AFRICA. Correxion to previous log, 7285, not 7185 (tnx, Ron Howard): 3320, May 22 at 0450, R. Sonder Grense is still in with poor signal in Afrikaans; by 0459, it`s upped to 7285 with fair signal, evidently news already started, defaulting to English for the expression ``corrupt officials`` of which I gather there are plenty in RSA, but not to be expressed in Afrikaans? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 23 at *0114.16.5 SLBC VP carrier on; 0114:58.5 music starts; 0115:19.5 the 2+1 mistimesignal ends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1774 monitoring: confirmed Friday May 22 starting at 2129:56.5 on WRMI 15770, good; and also separate playout Friday May 22 from 2130:35.5 on WRMI 7570, fair. Next:

** U S A. 12105, 9930, 9475, 5830, 5085, ALL three WTWW transmitters are off at 0124 UT check May 23; I believe I did notice 12105 on earlier in the day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
