Glenn Hauser logs November 28, 2015

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7469.98, Nov 28 at 0224, R. Tirana is certainly on tonite, S7 to S9 with IS running past 0230 to sign-on starting at 0230:41. Klara`s announcement has changed to cite 7470 for this broadcast so it must be sticking; but sounds like she gives time for the earlier 7465 broadcast as ``2100 to 2030``, and into news. My first chance to check since I found it missing three nights ago.
Wolfgang BÃschel was also monitoring this night, via a remote in New Jersey: ``7469.979 kHz frequency in 49mb from the Shijak broadcast center site. Signal strength was S=9+20dB tonight. All in English language. No distortion, no interference on that channel.``
7425, meanwhile, the frequency we persuaded R. Tirana not to use, is still occupied at 0225 Nov 28 by Vatican Radio mixing with Martà as leapfrog of 7305 over 7365 at Greenville, with the VR IS audible at 0227. And also stray Cuban pulse jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 9722.72, Nov 28 at 0142, RB2 has drifted down to here, S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9964.55 approx., Nov 28 at 0140, R. Cairo Arabic service is just barely modulated with whine, S9+10.
9745, Nov 28 at 0213, R. Cairo`s other Arabic service is suptorted, S9+20. Nothing in English/dead air on 9315, 9720 or 9860 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [non]. 11580, Sat Nov 28 at 0133, RFI English via WRMI is S9+10, but modulation is scratchy; interview in Ghana about the limited areas 4G is available (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 11650, Nov 28 at 0134, Qur`an at S6-8, so RSO is here tonite (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. Correxion: in this report, the correct Chaski cutoff was at 0111:36.5*, not 0112:36.5.
5980, Nov 22 at 0058, one JBA carrier, R. Chaski, and still only one 0059-0100+ when BBC/UAE should have come on. By 0110 now there are two beating against each other until the stronger one cuts off at 0111:36.5* which is 12 seconds later than at 0111:24.5 on Nov 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, Nov 28 at 0137, SLBC with S Asian songs, S7-9, much stronger than usual; I should have had an easy time copying the mis-timesignal at 0115+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** THAILAND [and non]. 13744.97, Nov 28 at 0122, R. Thailand is very poor, S4 in Thai. Hope it was better during preceding semihours in English. RHC is still on 13740 but weak enough at only S9 not to be a problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7615.00-USB, Nov 28 at 0220, very formal net with YL NCS strong, asking others to making general calls, those very weak. Calls mentioned sounded like Broadway 51, 0222 Treadway 19, then announces net is moving to NNB (fonetikaly), and that announcement also repeated by others. I think it must be TRIBLADE, i.e. CAP (Civil Air Patrol), as in this similar log:
http://forums.radioreference.com/utility-listening/304074-7615khz-usb-0200utc.html
And which I also logged on other frequencies in DXLD 15-33 (7416) and 15-05 and 14-51 (14902). There are several more CAP logs in the DXLD 2014y archive (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330, Nov 28 at 0115, WBCQ is certainly on tonite and propagating to the tune of S9+25, but it`s Blalock the Blaster, so quick tune to the others with UT Sat`s `Allan Weiner Worldwide`: 7490 is also S9+25, and 5109.7-CUSB running 29 seconds behind, is S9+30. Later in the hour he`s explaining to a caller the different color TV systems, how the FCC first approved the CBS mechanical scan in the early 50`s, but in a year replaced it with the RCA electronic system, which lasted until the DTV transition; also another way to fool the eye into seeing some color on black and white TV. Around 0215, 7490 seems to drop power and then go off; shortly later 5109.7 too, back on at 0219. Meanwhile I have been hearing terrible splash QRM from WRNO 7504.75 across 7490 and beyond. By 0233 check AWWW has concluded, BS is on 7490, and the video game show on 5109.7, `Grogcast` whose nominal timing is 0200-0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7504.75, Nov 28 at 0215, WRNO S9+45 blob centered approx. here, extremely distorted and splattering as far as 7490 WBCQ and beyond, 7520 WWCR and beyond, both of which are weaker to start with and can`t muscle aside the crap on their own frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, more on the peculiar situation of WTWW-2 (not -3 as misnumbered in last report). After carrying Dark Matter programs during the night and day on Friday Nov 27 as detailed before, at next check 0114 UT Sat Nov 28, these have been removed and replaced by dead air, and still so at 0150. But by next check 0212, a bluegrass version of ``Jingle Bells`` is playing; 0229 Ted-in-a-reverb-well is selling some radio; and more Xmas carols. Signal is blasting in during music such that it almost merits AM-S wideband reception on the NRD-545. But bah, enough already with the carols.
At 0118, 9475, WTWW-1 has faded way down but some hymn is on SFAW; while 12105, WTWW-3 is a JBA carrier, presumably still dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1590, UT Sat Nov 28 at 0154 UT, a basketball game, quick ad for an overhead door company, phone 289-2211. Game is in Steel (sp?) Gym, fades out and in and out. Could not copy names of teams or any other details except an ID in passing as ``Basketball on 1590, WAKI (?) radio at half-time``. That led me to WAKR Akron OH, but nothing chex out there. So try search on Overhead Door with the phone number and get such a biz in Knoxville IL, on Galesburg Road. Knoxville is just east of Galesburg in NW IL, so aha, this is really WAIK Galesburg IL, confirmed by what they say tonight on FB:
``On AM 1590 WAIK, the Galesburg Silver Streak boys basketball team will start their highly anticipated 2015-16 season with a Galesburg Thanksgiving Tournament game against East Peoria. Shawn Temple, Jimmie Carr and newest member of the PRSN team, Steve Cheesman will have the call with their pregame show at 7:10, tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 from John Thiel Gym in Galesburg. Happy Thanksgiving from the entire staff at Prairie Radio Sports!!``
WAIK has a not unfavorable pattern day and night, flat null northward, but broad from east to south to west; 55 watt night power, however, is hardly sufficient, so how about 5 kW day power? Unfortunately for ABDX this doesn`t qualify as HSFB since it`s BKB. O well (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 891.0, Nov 28 at 0205, het upon WLS 890.0 Chicago, instantly bringing to mind the 600/300 kW Algerian, altho I seem to recall it`s ailing. The only other TA superpower over there is the 300 kW TRT in Antalya, Turkey, where all the Russian expat residents are getting real nervous. Incomplete MW scan notices no other TA carriers, of course checking secondly 1521 for Saudi. KOKC 1520 has enough problems with the CCI from Minnesota (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
