Glenn Hauser logs November 4-5/5-6/6-7/8



Glenn Hauser logs November 8, 2015
** BRAZIL. 9723.40, Nov 8 at 0049, Radio RB2, very poor S6 in Brazuguese, continues its drift ever-downward from nominal 9725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7350, UT Sunday Nov 8 at 0037, looking for The Mighty KBC on the frequency it unexpectedly had to use last week --- no, all I get is a weak signal from CRI English, which was already there at 23-02 via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, to Europe (also on 7425 for S Asia at 00-01). Is KBC back on 7395?
7395, Nov 8 at 0037, JBA carrier, can`t tell what it is, but maybe KBC via Nauen, GERMANY, where it was a biweek ago. Nothing on 7375, the frequency before that.
At 0131 Nov 8, still only CRI on 7350; but on 7395, the giveaway beeps of a VOA Radiogram, and then the unmistakable voice of Uncle Eric, but it`s still very poor, S6. Kim Elliott quickly reported to the DXLD yg that they were replaying last week`s program instead of a new one (for those who never found it on 7350 without notice?)
Propagation from Europe is still very degraded; moving down to 6 MHz band might help a little, but transmitting via a US station such as WRMI or WBCQ would help a lot more. Why does KBC have to emanate via Germany? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1270, Nov 8 at 0115 UT, KRXO Claremore (Tulsa), ID for ``NBC Sports Radio on 1270 AM and 107.9 FM, KRXO The Fan`` --- huh? They were an outgrowth of 107.7 KRXO in OKC; while 1270 goes on and on with national ads, PSAs, NBCSR promos at least until 0121 UT, 107.7 is amid play-by-play of some SBG. Originally 1270 was // 107.7 but way out of synchrony. Now it`s independent with its own FM, but wonder of wonders, the 250-watt translator is not getting top billing (yet?)
Here`s the info about 107.9 in Broken Arrow, K300CY:
http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/pubacc/prod/sta_det.pl?Facility_id=157502
showing its primary as KTUZ, all owned by Tyler Media; this page not updated for KRXO call-change on 1270 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, Nov 8 at 0055, JBA carrier from R. Chaski; 0059 joined by a weaker one from BBC UAE, making the usual double-pitch het with BFO since they are a few Hz apart. Restoring a weaker single-pitch carrier from UAE only, R. Chaski cuts off at 0110:08*, which is 32.5 seconds later than last check Nov 3 at 0109:35.5, or an average of 6.5 seconds later per diem (noctem?). By the time it precesses to as much as 10 seconds ``late``, R. Chaski should be about to rest the slippery clocktimer closer to 0100*. 0138 recheck, no carrier as BBC runs only until 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Should you be reading this in time, have a try at WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, carrying WORLD OF RADIO 1798 at approx. 0415 UT Sunday Nov 8; otherwise, UT Monday 0400 on WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB or 0430 on WRMI 9955; etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330.1-CUSB, Nov 8 at 0046, hard rock music, but soon softer instrumental rock until 0059 with no announcements whatsoever. I assume it`s Radio Northern Ireland, which was planning to broadcast every Saturday night to North America on this frequency at 2300, I thought, evidently shifted to start at 0000 UT Sundays, but no such listing yet appears on the WBCQ 9330 program schedule. On a previous program, Jordan had said goodbye by :45 with nothing more but music then either. When it stops at 0059, WBCQ ID & IS loop plays for a minute, marred by some uteblaaps, 0100 sign-off announcement and off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3185, Nov 8 at 0101, WWRB is S8 but suptorted, modulation not making a connexion: wiggle that patchcord! Still same at 0142, nothing but scratching on 3185, while 5050 is VG, loud & clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 600, Nov 8 at 0127 UT, ad for Kelowna Auto! Has me going, but isn`t the BC station on 600, CKBD, in Vancouver, and also gone for good? No, it must be merely WMT Cedarapids IA, as they continue with ``on highway 1 south of Iowa City``. However, I don`t find any such hiway around Iowa City, but the Trans-Canada Hiway is not too far (north) of Kelowna; hmm. I must suppose this Auto bizness in IA is otherwise spelt too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1150, Nov 8 at 0122 UT, promos for programs on ``Newstalk 1150, WHBY``, at least three of them so three such IDs, then mentions Wisconsin Badgers; surprised to hear this dominating 1150 as I tune across, rather than KSAL KS. NRC AM Log shows WHBY is 20/25 kW (yes, more at night), so no wonder it gets out, from Kimberley (Appleton) WI, U4. NRC Pattern Book shows very tight day and night patterns with huge lobe to the northeast! Must be out of whack, like non-direxional now; no wonder I haven`t heard it before. Looks like it should barrel into Europe if on proper patterns (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [non]. 7425, Nov 8 at 0136, JBA carrier from VOA Greenville, caused by S9+25 open carrier on 7305, leaping over adjacent 7365 Radio Martà transmitter, and a trace of that modulation can be heard on 7425 // 7365. Vatican Radio starts Spanish at 0145 per its new unpublicized schedule, and now the spur on 7425 rates S6, a mixture of weak Vatican and Martà audio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0400 UT November 8

Glenn Hauser logs November 6-7, 2015
** ALBANIA. 7470, Nov 7 at 0229, R. Tirana is JBA with IS, so has stayed here for a week now, ex-7425, where the Greenville leapfrog is just as strong/weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ARGENTINA. 15345.17, Nov 6 at 2216, RAE has an S9 signal, but it`s just barely modulated, can`t determine the language, but should be Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 15325, Nov 6 at 2215, no signal from R. Gazeta, which had been reported reactivated with futebol, by Cassio Secundino Borges Santos Secundino on Nov 3 but without specifying the time heard. Argentina is S9 on 15345.17 at this time, and a JBA S3 signal on 15190.00 may not be R. InconfidÃncia since it`s not off-frequency altho nothing else scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9900 & 9800, Nov 6 at 2229, no signals from R. Cairo English to Europe, on the usual or alternate frequency. Don`t think that propagation is that bad, so off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 530, Nov 7 at 0637 UT, EZL music from R. Enciclopedia (overdue for a new name), CUBA, can be heard without K530AM Vance AFB QRM if I null the latter, far enough away from the 10?-watt pointless TIS, still playing in rotation same old stale off-topic PSAs from Ad Council as in previous years. If not completely nulled, makes fast SAH, as reactivated K530AM is slightly off-frequency to low side. If there is ever an emergency at the base, I`ll be listening whether the nonsense is overridden for something useful (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 960, Nov 7 at 0727-0730+ UT, local KGWA Enid is open carrier/dead air with some hum, and nulling it as much as possible at 0729 UT I can hear one or two English stations, but no ID. The ones I used to get most in the midnight Fox-hole were KMA IA and KGKL TX. No telling how long before or after this KGWA was dead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non?]. 6080, Nov 7 at 0627, very strong open carrier, as VOA is about to start; 0630 recheck with rock music, evidently JIP as this is Saturday, instead of news, and as everyone knows, nothing ever happens on weekends. Registered as SAO TOME as I noted in Oct 30 log, and still as such in latest HFCC B-15 info. However, this is so strong that I am now suspecting that Greenville is substituting, perhaps for maintenance at Pinheira; also that should have been on continuously from 0500 to 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1798 monitoring: confirmed Friday Nov 6 after 2130 on WRMI 15770 & WRMI 7570. The latter continues to be the better one here now. NOT confirmed Friday Nov 6 at 2330 on 5850, where had been for a few months.
The WRMI frequency/program grid has now been updated to show this slot occupied by R. Ukraine International and // 11580 which is what I was hearing at 2357 check, but cut off in progress at 2359:30 for Keith Perron ID, and 0000 Nov 7 into RSI in Slovak.
Another WOR broadcast dropped is Sunday 2300 on 11580.
WOR also NOT confirmed Saturday Nov 7 at 1538-1557 on 7265-USB Hamburger Lokalradio; Utwente SDR is getting nothing but S Asian music from CRI Kashgar. (Last week WOR was well atop.) 1540 during talk segment I can now hear another station under but unsounds like me! Aoki shows Azad Kashmir Radio, 100 kW from Pakistan is also on 7265 at this time, but suspected it was imaginary. Next for WOR:
Sat 2030v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 0415v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5110v-CUSB Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, WRMI revised program grid as of Nov 6 shows R. Eslovaquia Internacional in Spanish not only at 1130-1200 daily except Sundays, but also at 1330-1400 M-F! So my logs last few days of RSI in ``wrong`` language Spanish instead of English at 1330 are now contradicted by the schedule, as if intentionally changed, tho doesn`t make sense. Presumably R. Prague at 1300-1330 except Sundays remains in English; it`s shown as R. Praga Mon-Thu at 1100-1126 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490.00, Fri Nov 6 at 2214, WBCQ seems right on-frequency during `Behaviour Night` = ancient music recordings, and VG signal with no BBC Thailand QRM audible. If/when WBCQ fades, skips over part of N America, BBC will likely appear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [non]. 7425, Nov 7 at 0229, Vatican R IS is JBA from Greenville leapfrog of 7305 over 7365, about to close; while ALBANIA remains escaped to 7470, but not any stronger, with propagation degraded (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5925, Nov 6 at 1315, very poor talk in unknown language, marred by humwhine seemingly self-imposed. HFCC shows only thing is CNR from Beijing; Aoki says it`s CNR-5, but also lists Voice of Vietnam-2 during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 17805.50-USB, Nov 6 at 2220, very poor 2-way INTRUDERS, probably in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1612 UT November 7

Glenn Hauser logs November 5-6, 2015
** CUBA. 11910-11990, Nov 6 at 1405, DentroCuban Jamming Command not only attacks 11930 Radio Martà with a wall-of-noise, but allows it to splatter spuriously far beyond the `necessary` frequency. It`s particularly heavy around 11990. The bane of shortwave, and don`t give RHC a pass for it when their own signals, such as 11950 in between, remain clear of any jamming. The mess on 11930 also degrades one of our few chances to hear R. Japan in English, 11925 via Palau (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15370, Nov 6 at 1359, RHC is already on here with canned announcement that 9850 and 9550 are closing, and 15370 is opening. Modulation on 15370 is breaking up. Then the live announcer, still well before 1400, claims it`s ``exactamente las 9 de la maÃana``! There`s nothing wrong with approx. timechex within a minute, but there is something wrong when you repeatedly claim them to be ``exact``. Furthermore, 9550 is *not* going off at 1400, still on at 1440 check. RHC has failed to make its announcements accurate during the Two Sesquiweeks of Confusion until their own B-15 sked kicks in on Nov 15; but don`t count on them to be correct then, either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 1650, Nov 6 at 0655, as KYHN OK is not too strong at the moment (really 1 kW night power?), I null it and try to pull something else thru, aiming N/S, especially some Spanish music. 0656 tentative ID in passing as Radio Zer, which would finally get me the MÃxico DF 5/5 kW XEARZ which has been eluding me. Trouble is, there are also two US SS stations on 1650, CO & TX, and adding to the mix is KCNZ IA. I can forget about the two Canadians and other UStations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1650, Nov 6 at 0659 UT, KFSW Sallisaw, still claiming to be with its singing ID, ``Arklahoma`s talk radio, KYHN Fort Smith``. Probably paid a pretty penny for their jingle package which the call change will obsolete, if they ever admit new identity (why not ``Oklansas``?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SLOVAKIA [non]. 9955, Nov 6 at 1350, REI in Spanish, for at least the third day, instead of scheduled RSI in English from 1330, via WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15400, Nov 6 at 1514, YL ID for R. Tamazuj and several ``kHz`` mentions in Arabish, no doubt citing own frequencies rather than a DX program; fair here and also on poor 15550, which is about a sesquisecond ahead, i.e. two different transmitter sites. HFCC will not break out specific services under the PNW registration, but shows 15550 is VATICAN at 1500-1630, i.e. followed by R. Dabanga, while 15400 is via FRANCE at 1500-1530 only Tamazuj.
Trying to remember the third frequency, I try 15150, but that`s AWR via Germany. HFCC shows 13800 is also PNW at 1500-1630, switching from Madagascar to Vatican at 1600. Which means that siteswitch still comes in the middle of the Dabanga broadcast rather than between Tamazuj and Dabanga. One might be amused by observing any overlap around 1557-1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 12035, Nov 6 at 1351, VOT English, poor, but much better than usual, into `Eco-Friendly Turkey` segment; 1407 recheck nice Turkish music, as the second half of broadcasts are mostly music. Transmission break of less than a minute at 1413, but when it cuts back on, seems noticeably weaker; what happened? Maybe discovered belatedly to be on wrong azimuth? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1797 monitoring: confirmed Thu Nov 5 after 2100 on WRMI 7570, good. NOT confirmed UT Fri Nov 6 at 0225 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB --- Should have shifted to 0200 UT, but I did not have a chance to check until 0225, and on two portables, no signal at all. Was it off? Or blotted by K-index of 3 at 00, 4 at 03 per WWV, altho no spaceweather storms before or predicted at that time. Could/did anyone hear this broadcast? Next:
Fri 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. Very depressed propagation conditions around 0630 UT Nov 6: 9 MHz almost dead; 11 MHz not much but usual VG signal from 11725 NZ, with 11780 Brasil much weaker than usual; US stations on 6 MHz weakened, and even 4840 WWCR. But VOA English news inbooming on 6080, tnx to equatorial SAO TOME site, and despite seemingly unfavorable 20 degree azimuth at 05-07 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 670, Nov 6 at 0640 UT, Cuban music from R. Rebelde is now unimpeded by cheatin` daytimer KHGZ Caddo Country, Arkansas. What happened? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1290, Nov 6 at 0707 UT, Jim Bohannon show about the National Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago, with guest Bruce DuMont, as tuxed JimBo has just emceed their annual awards show. DuMont founded the Museum of Broadcast Communications and is the nephew of Allan(sp?) DuMont, TV pioneer who started the first TV network (until 1955*; I remember seeing it during my earliest TV DXing days in NM).
Presume this 1290 is Wichita Falls, but uplooked later in the station-finder, no, it`s from the opposite direxion, KOIL Omaha NE. Anyhow I soon switch to KSL 1160 UT where I know reception will be better, once I evade the IBOC from 1170 KFAQ (take that! KSL throws the same noise on KFAQ). Anyhow, it`s too late to keep listening, but this JimBo show should be of especial interest to broadcast historians, and they are available OD: not yet as of 1640 UT, but click on November 5 here:

for some details, and

Before 0700 UT I was also hearing Bohannon on 680, i.e. KFEQ St Joseph MO, which plays the first hour at 0607 UT instead of live at 0307 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1630, Nov 6 at 0701 UT, news all about Iowa, how strange in the nightmiddle rather than plugging into some national network at hourtop; I bet it`s recorded. 0702 UT weather from some TV station; 0703 UT ``The Mighty 1630 --- loud & clear, KCJJ`` and rock music. Split format from Iowa City of TLK/AC per NRC AM Log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. TA carrier search Nov 6 at 0643-0651: 711 from ENE, Morocco? 783 from about 80 degrees, Mauritania? 738, probably TP Tahiti (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 9400, Nov 5 at 1359, Denge Kurdistane somewhat atop CCI from presumed FEBC Philippines in Chinese, which goes off at 1401 clearing up DK, which is playing a march, unnational anthem? Then a 6-pip timesignal ending at 1401:18! Before 1500, has faded way down; site presumed PRIDNESTROVYE during this span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Nov 5 at 1334, WRMI is in Spanish, presumably R. Eslovaquia Internacional still in wrong language contrary to scheduled English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 670, Nov 5 at 0722 UT as I tune across, ID for ``98.9 FM, Caddo Country``, i.e. KHGZ, 5 kW DAYTIMER in Glenwood AR, having abandoned its porcine identity. Nevertheless, FCC AM Query thinx its call remains KHGZ, since Feb 1, 2013, ex-KWXI, ex-KQAC. Makes SAH of about 4 Hz with WSCR, but quite mutually nullable at close to right angles. I first reported the flip from silly sportstalk to country music on Oct 28; Paul Walker says they were also on air earlier this UT day well after sunset (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 880-CUSB, Nov 5 at 1301 UT, hymn in Navajo, 1302 UT English ID as KHAC, Tse Bonito NM, and reciting Psalm XXIII in English. Seems always on 10 kW day power ND, penetrating far to the east at night unlike compliers 770 KKOB and 660 KTNN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-oceanic 9-kHz-plan carrier searches on the DX-398: Nov 5 at 0711-0714, first noted het on 620, i.e. 621.0 kHz; then found het on 710 too, i.e. from 711; and JBA carriers on 738 and 882. Sunrise in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands was 0719 UT today, likely source of 621, and maybe 882 tho WRTH flags it as low power; 711 could be Morocco, while 738 more likely Tahiti from the other worldside, looping WSW/ENE. My DFing is quite approximate, and the true bearing of Tahiti from here is 232 degrees (exact southwest being 225); and of Canary Islands is 71 degrees.
Another search after I awaken at 1250-1253 UT Nov 5: first check 774 but nothing there; however JBA carriers on 747, 738, 702 from the west, and 792. My guesses: 747 Japan, 738 Tahiti, and 702 from Australia. Our sunrise today: 1258 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
