Glenn Hauser logs December 15-16, 2016

** ALBANIA. 7475-, Dec 16 at 0026, JBA carrier, presumably all that R. Tirana can muster during its Albanian to North America hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ANGOLA. 4949.73, Dec 16 at 0022, RNA poor at S9 but good modulation in Portuguese talk. Still would like to hear it at armchair level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ARGENTINA. 11710.865, Dec 16 at 0334, RAE ATTW S9 signal, but low modulation probably tango during alleged English hour. Hardly anything propagating on 25m besides this and Brasil at S9+20. Yet K-index 1, no storms and solar flux was 73 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. 11820-, Dec 16 at 0012, CRI Cantonese at S9+20, and short/long path echo, unlike when heard 3 nights ago. Is 500 kW, 200 degrees from Xi`an.
6020, Dec 16 at 0012, CRI English via ALBANIA, no double-audio echo tonight, unlike 47 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COSTA RICA. 2859.82, Dec 16 at 0016, JBA music, tentative R. San Carlos 2 x 1430v. It`s less than the noise level of S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 7400, Dec 16 at 0340, VP S8 signal with some music. Supposedly Denge Kurdistane on new frequency starting today per Ivo Ivanov, ex-9400, at 0330-0600, via PRIDNESTROVYE (and full sked copied in my last report).
No matter that 7400 is one of the frequencies reserved at 23-12 UT, to all 85 CIRAF target zones for International Radio for Disaster Relief, as explained here:
http://hfcc.org/humanitarian/
But yet to be implemented; no disasters needing radio relief yet? Hardly. Plus/minus 5 kHz channels are also supposed to be kept clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 5790, Dec 16 at 0341, VP S7 signal with talk, barely recognizable at occasional peaks to be [Station YHWH] as expected since first reported on this available channel 24 hours earlier. Still on past 0428, slightly better (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, Dec 16 at 0014 & 0034, again no signal from R. Chaski, but a JBA carrier on 5979 from PBS Gannan, China. Last report of Chaski from Claudio Galaz, Chile was Dec 10 at 2210, and then at 2305, no carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 2500, Dec 16 at 0016, WWV announcing that a LEAP SECOND will be inserted Dec 31 at 2359:60 UT. First I had heard of this: will make our NYE celebration much more exciting! Besides the 61-second minute from WWV, we`ll be pulled to BBCWS for full strike of Big Ben (or not; is it back in live broadcast service?). Another fun thing to do would be immediately after this, check the few other SW timesignal stations, whether they have also leaped or become out of step with WWV and real World Time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1856 monitoring: confirmed Thursday December 15 at 2130 on WRMI 13695, excellent. Not confirmed UT Friday December 16 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, but a JBA carrier on by 0031, so should be with WOR, propagating to anywhere? (9265 WINB is VP at S5; 7490 WBCQ with `Broad Spectrum Radio` about ND pipeline is only S9 and fading). Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9930, Dec 16 at 0030, WTWW-2 is on day frequency at night instead of 5085, and --- in a commercial break during Dave Ramsey Show! Which had been running at 19-22 UT weekdays. 9930 is S9+10 but fading, about same as 9475 WTWW-1 with SFAW white supremacy show. Not rechecked until 0339, when 9930 is *still* on, now with distorted Xmasmx, 5085 off, but WTWW-1 has successfully QSYed to 5830.
Time for another gander at the WTWW schedule page, which does have some new info but not all correct:
http://wtww.us/pages/schedule.php
``Transmitter 2
QSO RADIO SHOW SATURDAY 1 PM CENTRAL ON 9475
THEATER ORGAN FROM THE OZARKS SATURDAY 1 PM ON 9330
AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLINE SATURDAY 1:30 PM ON 9330
QSO RADIO SHOW SATURDAY 1:30 PM ON 9330
QSO RADIO SHOW LIVE TUESDAY 8 PM CENTRAL ON 5085
HAMNATION LIVE WEDNESDAY 8 PM on 5085
AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLINE WEDNESDAY 9 PM ON 5085
QSO RADIO SHOW WEDNESDAY 9:30 OR FOLLOWING NEWSLINE ON 5085``
Hey Ted, transmitter 2 is NOT the one on 9475, and it`s on 9930, NOT 9330 (which is WBCQ; let`s hope this error x3 is not extended to the transmitter tuner where it would blow away weak WBCQ). Dave Ramsey not mentioned at original or strange time tonight. Repeat of Organ/Ozarx Sat 8 pm not mentioned (if it still exists: dead air last week). As a matter of fact, fails to mention ALL the times when dead air is broadcast. BTW, I was once told that Mrs. Ted is in charge of the website provider for this, ``powered by tux-support.com``, but just try hitting the hotlink to it at pagebottom (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5131.44-USB approx., Dec 16 at 0033, 2-way in Spanish, very poor while checking for 5130+ WBCQ but which is not on. Can`t call them intruders, in fixed band where broadcasters intrude (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6949.96-AM, Dec 16 at 0024, JBA pirate music. Strangely, nothing at all yet posted on the HF Underground board for UT Dec 16 by 0455.
BTW, re my previous log on 6950.90-AM of ``Lee County Radio``?, Chris Smolinski replies: ``Looks like it was indeed Lee County Radio based on the QSL, but no confirmation as to which Lee County :)`` https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,31589.0.html
