Glenn Hauser logs January 25, 2016

** ALASKA. 9680, Jan 25 at 1358, the KNLS IS heard once amid QRM as Chinese hour ending, deliberately collides with ChiCom jamming and Taiwan also until 1400; I retune to 9615 at 1359, for open carrier and no QRM, 1400 IS and English ID, 1401 sign-on by Lucy Grant, hostess for the hour, very poor at S6, and getting even weaker as the hour goes on. At least we know that KNLS survived the 7.1 earthquake epicentered 53 miles west of Anchor Point in the ocean. I wonder if they said anything about the quake on the program, probably pre-recorded in Tennessee.
Now, any progress on getting their new Madagascar World Voice on the air???? A bunch of frequency registrations for A-16 are again made in the 7, 9, 11, 15 and 17 MHz bands, as the A-16 HFCC conference gets underway in Istanbul (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6134.8, Jan 25 at 0253, still humbuzz only, from presumed R. Santa Cruz defective transmitter, which they are also leaving on later than when it was funxional. Also 6135.2, R. Aparecida, Brasil, transmitter is in no better shape, no modulation audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 910, Jan 25 at 0404 UT, station in English mentions Canadian Press, so presumably news source for CHML Hamilton, vs QRM unlike the clear signal I had 25 hours earlier, despite unfavorable nite pattern.
860, this time I check for other Ontarians, and at 0406 UT Jan 25, Radio-Canada ID in French over KKOW, into music, and this does loop NE, not NW, so CJBC Toronto. MusiQRM to 740 KRMG is probably CFZM too via CBL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 2749-USB, Jan 25 at 0242, YL in English with weather, especially wind forecasts, S7, 0243 I thought Placentia was mentioned, but that would be Newfoundland not on this channel; gale warnings. CCG website shows: VCS, MCTS Halifax starting at 0240 via Sambro site: ``2749J3E, Radiotelephony, Technical marine synopsis, forecasts and wave height forecasts for marine areas 201 to 214. Notices to Shipping in South Coast Nova Scotia area. Notices to Shipping revising the position of every reported offshore exploration and exploitation vessel`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 4765, Jan 25 at 0240, R. Progreso is still off --- wait, it pops on with weak S9+5 signal, and in Spanish so not Tajikistan; compared to 5025 Rebelde which is S9+40. 0413 recheck, 4765 is completely off again, just CODAR: transmitter problems. And whatever became of Arnie`s repeatedly publicized plans to put RHC on a 90m frequency? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5040, UT Mon Jan 25 at 0236, RHC `En Contacto` DX program confirmed starting at this time, final repeat; #4 for 2016y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6870-AM, Jan 25 at 0301, JBA carrier, no doubt from RHC, 0.5 x 13740. BTW, I`m still not hearing RHC on 6270, altho its leapfrogging sources, 6060 and 6165 are still very much present (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15750, Jan 25 at 1419, CRI English via Cuba is here instead of 15700! Same strong, but undermodulated, hummy signal. Still past 1430; at 1459 it`s off and still not on 15700, but back on 15750 from 1501, still at 1543. A mistake? I vaguely recall that 15750 may once have been registered as alternate to 15700 for this 14-16 service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 9490, Jan 25 at 0313, R. RepÃblica is still running in Spanish and so is the Cuban noise jamming at about equal level. EiBi shows this at 0000-0300 only via Issoudun, FRANCE, like HFCC in three 1-hour segments. But Aoki shows the span is 0100-0500, which is more like it. I`ve also previously logged RR after 0400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965.00, Jan 25 at 0317, R. Cairo is S6, attaining frequency accuracy! Now if they can only figure out how to add Arabic modulation instead of dead air and some hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 6185-, Jan 25 at 0250, XEPPM is back on, S9 but undermodulated, slightly on lo side, in Spanish, after missing last night. Also still on during collision with Armenian from Vatican at 0315, roughly equal levels making SAH of about 9 Hz. Yet another example of SMG signals going far astray with more oomph than they should have (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEWFOUNDLAND [and non]. 6160-, Jan 25 at 0629, with BFO tuned to 6159, I can hear two signals beating against each other at the rate of about 9x per second, which fits for Wolfgang BÃschel`s SDR measurements Jan 18 around 0620 of: 6159.983, for CKZN St. Johns, 6159.974, for CKZU Vancouver. However, another comparison on Jan 23 put them about 11-12 Hz apart. They do vary slightly, but always on low side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.0-USB, Jan 25 at 0256, soul music S9+10, 0258 another tune, now S9+20 refined to 6924.97 with some overmodulation distortion; at 0303 fades way down and/or off as I start to hear a muffled announcement --- or rather, that`s another station on LSB; when switching to that I hear colloquial Brazuguese almost like a broadcast, but then pause and 2-way answer; so I guess it`s not RCW, Chilean pirate which has also used 6925. More obs of this as unID from *0248, and also Brazilian LSB:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, Jan 25 at 1321 UT & 1338 UT chex, WKY OKC is open carrier/dead air; nulling what`s left I can hear somestations but nothing IDed (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PAPUA NEW GUINEA [and non]. 7325-, Jan 25 at 1323, with BFO I can tell there are two carriers offset, so CRI is weak enough and WRL is strong enough. Ron Howard confirms that Wantok Radio Light was back on the air yesterday when I also had a carrier. At 1357 today CRI goes off leaving the other carrier, at 1405 measured on 7324.94 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 7335, Jan 25 at 0309 RRI in Spanish about writers of the XIX century, mentioning Enescu repeatedly, S7, while // synchronized 7345 is S9+20, as befits targets of South and Central America, respectively via Tsiganeshti and Galbeni (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [non]. 9510, Jan 25 at 0314, Arabic at S6. It`s Afia Darfur via VATICAN and 0300-0330, to be followed by VOA Somali (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 12013, Jan 25 at 1341, JBA carrier from presumed V. of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, up against heavy RTTY on 12015; Jan 25 at 1342, also JBA carrier on 11512, another favourite frequency; and by 1408 shifted to 11517, all with no jammers adjacent audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 12035.07, Jan 25 until 1424:40*, VOT IS is playing at end of English broadcast, poor and considerably off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1809 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday Jan 25 from 0401.5 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB, some previous music having run over a bit, not a JL week. It`s S9+10 at 0410. Also confirmed at 0430 UT Monday Jan 25 on WRMI 9955, VG signal now but some pulse jamming audible under: tnx a lot, Arnie! Since WBCQ started a bit late, there is a 23-second overlap between the two WOR airings. (On WRMI at 0409 and later I was hearing music, suspected fill, but maybe really the day`s programming from R. Prague as scheduled.) Next:
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1415.6 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9975, UT Mon Jan 25 at 0318, KVOH with great music on `Sunday Night Swing Shift` via good modulation and signal. 0329 Pat Conrad says featuring Benny Goodman tonight from late 1930s aircheck recordings, but without missing a beat he`s into proselytizing, admittedly the real purpose of Voice of Hope. (BTW, Benny Goodman was Jewish:
http://www.nndb.com/people/755/000026677/
How would he feel about his music being used to turn people into Christians??)
Conrad also presents `Saturday Night Jazz Session`, UT Sundays 03-04; and `Classic Jazz`, UT Tue-Sat at 02-03. Now at 03-04 weeknites is `Ranch Nights Live - Jeff Carol (Country) (Simulcast with KWSV, 99.1FM, "The Ranch" - Simi Valley, California`. All other programming at 01-03 is from elsewhere, no longer including Rick Wiles. Latest sked on website dated Jan 11 shows nothing after 0400, so that experiment evidently failed. The signal does tend to fade down later in the night. In fact at 0350 recheck first tuneby I think it`s off, but then find it`s faded way down to only S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, UT Monday Jan 25 at 0415, the editor(?) of CQ Magazine is being interviewed by Ted, with reverb applied to make it all seem deeper down in a barrel, on S9+50 signal of WTWW-2. Ed. starts enumerating the columns in the mag, then can`t remember all of them. I wonder if they got around to explaining what happened to the SWL readership who got merged into CQ and then left behind. 5085 was not on the air when checked a sesquihour earlier; you never know when it will be, as there is no such thing as a simple program schedule on the WTWW.us website (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1130, Monday Jan 25 at 1337 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is in dead air again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Jan 25 at 1325, essentially no signal from R. Sana`a, builds up to good signal by 1335; at 1428 it`s S9+20 with ME music, 1435 several bad IADs, during which IBB Kuwait is more audible (at 1436, Iran 11730 is only S9 to S9+10). 1442 brief speech with echoes applied; 1445 martial music; after a few words of spoken intro, cut to Maghrib, sunset call to prayer at 1457:17 which is only one sesquisecond later than two days ago, 1457:15.5, and was missing one day ago. Still VG at 1544 check, S9+10. There continues to be a spirited discussion about this service and where it is coming from in the DXLD yg (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1460, Jan 25 at 0327 UT, station in Spanish catches my ear, better on the E/W antenna than the N/S. PSA by kid for ``Feeding America`` from the Ad Council; then loses out to sports talk in English. But at 0349 UT, Spanish again with another Feeding America PSA, this one by adult. Probably ID by SHVA, but can`t make it out in QRM, promo for an app and YL talk show for a bit, before 0355 T-mobile 1 ad in Spanish, 0356 State Farm in Spanish with jingles; 0358 a third! FeedingAmerica.org PSA, and something else from Ad Council mentioning ``jaiscul``, presumably = high school. Out during possible ToH ID time. NRC AM Log listings have several SS on 1460, most unlikely here, in FL, FL, GA, IL, IN, NV, OK, OR, TX, VA, WI.
We can rule out KZUE OK which is a daytimer and not E/W. Others unlikely by format are FL EWTN; NV and TX Deportes; some others look like they are musical rather than talk, but not clear. Or was this really sports rather than general talk? I can`t be sure, in which case KBZO Lubbock TX would stand out by direxion and proximity (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7348, Jan 25 at 1406, 1423, no signal here today from the unChinese station heard 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 1843 UT January 25
