Glenn Hauser logs November 26, 2015

** AUSTRIA. 5910.00, Thu Nov 26 at 0645, English preacher citing Romans VIII in a prayer. Not Polish, but surely this is the TWR service scheduled at 0645-0700 Tue-Sat only; no sign now of a second station such as Colombia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, Nov 26 at 0643, R. Rebelde modulation is cutting out; wiggle that patchcord! Or is this held together by chewing gum or baling wire? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15370, Nov 26 at 1938, open carrier/dead air with big hum, must be RHC, which is supposed to be in French to Europe from 1930. RÃveillez-vous! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 4749.945 approx., Nov 26 at 1334, Indonesian music, poor, announcement including bits of singing in the studio. So RRI Makassar is back; Ron Howard had found it missing a couple of days recently. Wolfgang BÃschel measured it on 4749.943, and I won`t quibble with that. Alone now, but at 1258 there was a LAH from one or two other stations closer to 4750.0 = Bangladesh, China.
4869.96, Nov 26 at 1332, VP signal from algo. Could be RRI Wamena, as Makassar is in on 4749+, or would it be AIR Nepali service via Delhi-Kingsway? Wamena had been reported lower, on 4869.914, by Ron on Nov 14, citing Wolfy`s recent measurement.
3905.0, Nov 26 at 1342, JBA S4 signal with song, presumably RRI Merauke, recently put on 3904.981 by Wolfy and Ron, but I don`t get it measured any more precisely. At least not much QRhAM at the moment. Much weaker than the JOZs on 3925, 3945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN. 3945, Nov 26 at 1340 tune-in, ``You`re listening to --- RN2``, and rock music, while 3925 RN1 is speaking Japanese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1390, Nov 26 at 0713 UT, still 0729 UT, and recheck 0906 UT, open carrier/dead air with some hum, from KCRC Enid, supposedly nonstop ESPN Radio; an improvement. A holiday will not be accepted as an excuse (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1801 monitoring: confirmed first SW airing, Thu Nov 26 at 1230 on WRMI 9955, fair at 1255. Next: 2100 on 7570, but missed checking. Next nexts:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Nov 26 at 1842, 1930 chex, S9+25 dead air yet again from WTWW-3 instead of Bibling. They must turn it on without bothering to hear if there is any modulation. Well, I wouldn`t listen to it either, but can`t help but run across it in bandscanning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 12050, Nov 26 at 1842, JBA carrier, presumed Dandal Kura, ASCENSION, as WEWN is still absent from half its Spanish frequencies, while 13830 is VG but with jamming bleeding in from 13820 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 620, Nov 26 before and after 0630 UT, Bloomberg News, via KEXB Plano/Dallas TX. Altho obviously from financial angle, it`s also good for general world news coverage, partly with a British accent not to be confused with BBCWS. Nice to be able to get this well, following the demise of that format on 1660 Kansas City. KEXB is ``Experts in Business``, ex-KMKI Mickey Disney. Web search leads to unchanged URL from 1160 station formerly with the now 620 format,
http://www.kvceradio.com/
and program schedule is along right margin or via drop-down for each day. Bloomberg is/was on sked M-F at 12-4 am & 3-4 pm CT = 06-10 & 21-22 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 21550, Nov 26 at 1510, 13m bandscan usually unproductive finds a good S9 signal here, and in English! It`s a speech about the UN, climate change, refers to ``your holiness``, 1513 applause. Anchor outros as executive director of the UN Environmental Development Program. Evidently he was merely introducing Pope Francis, who is visiting the UN office in Nairobi, Kenya, and soon starts to speak in Spanish (``an official UN language`` even tho rather off-topic here); voice-over translation starts in English, but interrupted at 1517 (or maybe he finished already). Having concluded it`s a Vatican Radio special, I quickly scan elsewhere on 21, 17 and 15 MHz bands but find nothing more. But at 1518 I turn up the gain and volume and do find *much* weaker signals on neighboring 21560 in Portuguese? And 21570 in algo. 21550 is still going with English coverage at 1541.
Only then do I fire up notify the DXLD yg of this special event:
``Good signal on 21550 at 1510 UT Nov 26, Vatican Radio in English covering Pope`s visit to Nairobi; later found much weaker signals in other languages on 21560, 21570, but none on 17 or 15 MHz. Still going at 1541. Full report to follow (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``
And check what else has been reported about this:
``Stumbled on strong signal on 21550 at 1525 Thu Nov 26 with apparent coverage of Pope visit to Kenya in English. Woman revoicing distorted audio of another woman speaker before a woman narrator discussing Pope's comments (Mike Cooper, Nov 26, DXLD)``
``Pope Francis is currently visiting Kenya, then will visit Uganda and Central African Republic. Vatican Radio website is showing these special commentaries broadcast on shortwave:

Note the 11725 broadcasts will collide with New Zealand! also on there until 0758 and normally quite good here. Christian Ghibaudo, France, BDXC-UK, was hearing 11725 already today in French at 0650, no mention of RNZI.
These three 13m frequencies are registered by VR in HFCC for specials, but only between 0800 and 1130, all toward different parts of Africa via SMG, but obviously extended a lot later. The much greater signal on 21550 here might be explained as closest to directly off the back from 145 degrees, which would be 325; but I do suspect this one might be Madagascar instead, i.e. aiming across Africa USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 3232.24-USB approx., Nov 26 at 0913-0925+, guy rambling about his problems trying to get a truck-driving license, and dropping plenty of F-bombs along the way; had 107 things to memorize for DMV test in South Carolina; how he wore a wire to spy on the examiners on behalf of their boss. Got paid for it and eased up on his grades. Mostly a monolog, but a weaker contact occasionally replies. Totally pirate, or some legal 2-way? Surely not ham, MARS or anything USG. Would have preferred to read it symmetrically 3232.32, but sounds better 80 Hz lower (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4900.00, Nov 26 at 0933, as I am unavoidably awake, might as well DX On 60m, and find a JBA signal here with music vs CODAR, much weaker than 4885 Brasil. Without references at hand, 4900 strikes me as a frequency where nothing conventional is ever reported.
Reawake at 1253, it`s still there and better, so this one is not Latin American, but east Asian: soprano with pop song, could be English but can`t understand any words, so J-pop or K-pop, keeps going past hourtop 1300 with no break or announcement. Lite CODAR now not much of a problem, and separable from RTTY circa 4905. This signal is not fluttery, so further east than the China/Tibet ones now audible at 1313 on 4800, 4920.
I soon realize that they are playing the same 4.5-minute song over and over! Axually the restarts are about 4 minutes and 28 seconds apart. By 1318 has improved to S9+10-20 with max preamp on the R75 and I can tell that the modulation is a bit low and distorted. Thinking it may have something to do with the Korean numbers station on 6215, I check that at 1318 and find a JBA carrier, not enough to match. At 1336, 4900 has improved even more to a steady S9+20. Still in at 1351 past 1400+. (Our sunrise today: 1320: will be as late as 1341 in 1 month.)
Nothing on 4900 in Aoki or HFCC; nor WRTH 2015 except for an inactive 1 kW in Guinea, lest we forget. I figured Ron Howard could hardly have missed this, so later I check the DXLD yg for any other logs and find:
``UNIDENTIFIED. (Korea?), 6215, at 1259, Nov 25. Playing the same pop Korean song over and over again; "Into the New World," sung by Girls' Generation (aka: SNSD); mostly fair; still heard at 1355. Thanks very much to Hiroyuki Komatsubara for the alert.

Youtube music video "Into the New World" (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, E1 & CR-1, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)
Unidentified - Korea(?) testing on 6215 kHz. Nov 26, on 4900 // 6215, at 1134; same song loop as yesterday; 4900 was fair/good. Ron Howard, San Francisco, ibid.)``
And Wolfgang BÃschel replied, listening at the same time as I: ``Around 1340-1400 UT, UNIDENTIFIED song singer in Korea? re 4900 // 6215 kHz, real measurement around 1340-1400 UT on a remote unit in eastern Thailand as 4899.9965 and 6215.0035 kHz. Signal strength in Eastern Thailand S=8 or -78dBm. Unit aligned against WWVH Hawaii 5000.0 and R Australia 4835.0 kHz. 73 Wolfgang df5sx``
Finally checking EiBi, we do find this but not at the times heard, and a lot more than 10 minutes each, but nary a number; holiday? ---
