[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs December 16-17-18, 2018

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6180, Dec 18 at 0120, heavy collision has resumed
between RNA in Brazuguese, and CRI English via CUBA, about equal
levels making fast SAH, as RNA is off-frequency a bit. All are too set
in their ways to resolve the conflict (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 14997 & 15283 approx., Dec 17 at 1515, the RHC JBA spurs are
audible again today, plus/minus 143 kHz out of the 15140 transmitter
(where BTW, Oman is reported reactivated but blocked by RHC here).
Something`s always wrong at RHC, but no 13 MHz FM spurs today (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1961, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 18 at 0116, no signal from RHC English, but
undermodulated 6165 is running; and 6060 in Spanish. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 7445, Dec 18 at 0112, SW Asian music and talk, S9+10 to S8,
not bad for BBC Woofferton beaming toward Afghanistan in Pashto; total
service is 0030-0330 alternating Dari and Pashto, except the final
semihour switches to Armenia site, why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1960 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
December 16 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, VP. NOT at 2230 on 9955, as outdated
listed by Observer. Confirmed UT Monday December 17 on WRMI 9395,
S9/S9+10 and 5950 same metering but noisier. Confirmed on Area 51
webcast, UT Monday December 17 from 0402 and JBA on WBCQ 5130.44. Also
confirmed UT Monday December 17 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, JBA with some

** U S A. While WOR 1960 is running on WRMI 5950 & 9395, UT Mon Dec 17
at 0230, what`s on the other audibles? 7780 Viva Miami; 9955 Wavescan;
5850 // 7570 // 7730 Brother HyStairical (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.4, Dec 17 at 0232, only this WBCQ is audible, VP,
nothing on 7490+ or 9330+; both off or not propagating? At 0359 on
Area 51 webcast, naughty Xmas carols on an old Radio TimTron
Worldwide, mentioning now ex-frequencies 5110 and 7415, ending a bit
late and right into WOR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.188v, Dec 18 at 0110, WBCQ with `From the Isle of
Music`, mixed with Cuban interviews. Gone after 0200 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.4, Dec 18 at 0218, VP WBCQ with TOM, at first another
voice, then BS himself, // same subject on 7570 WRMI, but far from
synchronized. 9330 off or inaudible, so has WBCQ moved BS to 5130? Had
been almost 24/7 on 9330, which 5130 may again become. WBCQ`s own
program schedules remain woefully outdated, e.g. still showing WOR at
0030 daily on 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 17 at 1513, WTWW-2 still on night frequency with a
hard-sell ham equipment Tedad; during extended Xmasmx? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Dec 17 at 1516, JBA talk so WJHR is here again
today instead of 15550 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1961, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5935, Dec 18 at 0115, S9+20 of dead air from WWCR, finally
resuming DGS at 0120 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Dec 12 at 0657, JBA music // 6000, i.e. RHC English X
2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13764 & 13636, Dec 12 at 1506, RHC-FM spurs out of 13700-AM;
also further pairs weaker outwards, all approx. circa 64 kHz
multiples: 13833 & 13572; 13897 & 13505; 13438-trace. At 1540 the
closest peak is now about 13769, still VG S9+10. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Dec 13 at 0133, RHC is S9+10/20 of dead air instead of
scheduled French. Toujours, quelque chose erron? ? RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165 undermod // 6000 moremod, Dec 13 at 0134, RHC English
already running presumably from 0100 contrary to *0200 wintersked. You
never know what the configuration will be later: at 0526: 6000 & 6165
English, 6060 off, 6100 & 5040 & 11840 Spanish; 12000 JBA carrier;
11700 VP algo.

At 0627: 12000 JBA carrier; 6100 poor now in English; 6165 better,
6000 S9+20, 5040 all in English; and 6060 is still off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13780, Dec 13 at 1429, RHC open carrier/dead air at S9+10 but
flanked by a panoply of raspy spur peaks approx. plus and minus 3 kHz
multiples between 13753 and 13802. No FM spurs out of 13700 at this
time. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 800, Dec 13 at 1407 UT, KQCV OKC is off! I hear
an ID in passing sounding like ``WBUL``; the closest fuzzy match in
the NRC AM Log is WVAL, Sauk Rapids MN, 2600/850 watts U4. Credible,
since 830 WCCO is still in. No sign of XEROK on 800 either.

Trying to pull more of WVAL or somethings in absence of KQCV, but it
cuts on at *1415 JIP gospel huxter, as if 1415 were its proper sunrise
in December, which is really 1330 UT (Jan: 1345 UT) --- but KQCV is
semi-local here day & night, 2500/1000, psra 38 watts (what`s the
point of a psra much lower than your night power?) IIRC, KQCV`s
pattern is out of whack with an STA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11815.717, Dec 12 at 1543, VOT in Turkish talk, S5-S8
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1960 monitoring: confirmed Wed Dec
12 at 1055 the 1030 on WRMI 5950, fair. Also confirmed, Wed Dec 12
from 2200:01, S9-S7 on WRMI 9955 following IS & ID loop; same time on

** U S A. 9455, Dec 12 at 2100, WRMI with Supreme Master TV on
extended sked, discussing first-nations regalia, S9-S6. Sked grid
shows this and 7570 both new and extension of 15770:
11-14  7570 at 315 degrees
14-20 15770 at  44 degrees (ex-87; so much for sub-Saharan Africa)
21-24  9455 at 160 degrees
But no longer on 9395 at 23-24 M-F or 5950 at 00-01
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Dec 13 at 1510, hearing nothing on 9475, I check here
to find WTWW-1 still on night frequency with PPPP. But no WTWW-2
Xmasmx on 5085, which had been on late into the night (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5009.673, Dec 13 at 1512, JBA carrier, maybe trace of
music. Has Madagascar varied down to here, by long path, or am I
chasing a phantom? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11820-11840, Dec 13 at 1435, rapid clicking like OTH
radar (not DRM). Which reminds me, it`s been a very long time since I
have heard any such OTHR inband or outband (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

EURAO Party - Winter Special 2018-2019: hunting beacons new

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "hunting beacons". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.
The party will be held for two weeks from December 22nd, 2018, to January 6th, 2019, 00:00-24:00 UTC. Read more.

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs December 11, 2018

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7210, Dec 11 at 2246, stilted Spanish from CRI
relay, including USB, QRM to ham QSO in English on LSB only, but
additional CCI of intermittent music which I think is naughty hamjam
on their favorite hangout. Other broadcasters listed now in Aoki/NDXC
are Sound of Hope, Taiwan plus jamming; Voice of Vietnam-1 from
Daclac; PBS Yunnan not restarting until 2255 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non].
9630.00, Dec 11 at 2304, Chinese, which NDXC/Aoki
shows as CRI in Cantonese via Jinhua 831 site this hour only, daily.
No sign of R. Aparecida, which has been about halfway between 9630.0
and 9631.0. It was also absent when I commonly would hear it circa
0630 UT Dec 11, when other off-frequency ZYs were there hetting 9565
and 9665 1-kHz BFO step-tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 7445, Dec 11 at 2244, two stations mixing in
Chinese; one with a clip in English to voice-over. That is certainly
VOA THAILAND as scheduled this hour only, the other CNR1 jamming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Dec 11 at 0542, RHC again on late in English, // 6000,
so second harmonic? 11840 is much stronger S9+10 in Spanish // 11700,
the latter with some distortion. 0624 recheck: 11700 & 11840 off,
12000 JBA carrier.

Is there anything to explain these on the RHC website schedule?
http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/frecuencias
The slow-loading pdf covering Spanish only, now shows 11840 & 11700 on
air until 0600, but both supposed to be in Spanish, for Chile and
Buenos Aires, respectively. 

Let`s see if from the British-flag page we can get a different
frequency schedule?
http://www.radiohc.cu/en/interesantes/frecuencias
Yes, this one altho headed in Spanish, covers all the non-Spanish
languages, starting with English. Still claims the evening English
span is 02-08, instead of reality 01-07 generally, with the extra
frequencies starting at 06 instead of 05 when we have been hearing
them, just like in the summer. 12000 does not appear on either
schedule at any time. It was a Spanish fundamental in A-18.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 11 at 1506, RHC is suptorted, // much better
15230. Would you believe that the current websked does not show 15230
ever? It`s always on at least in the mornings. There are two
suspicious blank spaces under Rio de Janeiro and San Francisco.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13560, Dec 11 at 1507, big RHC-FM blob right on the central
ISM frequency, i.e. separations of about 70-71 kHz from S9+40, 13700-
AM. The closer ones are quite readable in FM with the F# tone; further
out, only the tone may be detectable, as I then hunt the others and
note their strengths, put into order:

13334 trace
13418 S5
13489 S9
13560 S9+10
13630 S9+10
-----
13770 S9+10
13840 S9
13910 S9
13980 S5
14052 S3
14123 trace

Now that these spread into the 20m hamband, maybe the IARUMS will take
notice. However, by 1513, the spurs are diminishing greatly as if
someone is turning them down while the fundamental remains strong.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Dec 11 at 2257, RHC Spanish is S9+25 but suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 9749.8 approx., Dec 11 at 1248, Japanese mixing
with another weak signal slightly below 9750.00 making a LAH. I would
not expect NHK to be off-frequency but that is surely the one in
Japanese, per Aoki, running 0755-1600.

Two others are listed at this time, PBS Nei Menggu, Hohhot, I.M.,
CHINA in Mongolian at 2150-1605; and the one most likely to be off-
frequency, R. Kuwait in Arabic at 1100-1600. In fact, that was
reported on 9749.8 as long ago as Nov 2, 2017 by Ivo Ivanov (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGST)

** JAPAN. 11665, Dec 11 at 2259, tune in to hear nothing but a 3+1
accurate timesignal to 2300:00* and off immediately. It`s NHK World
Radio Japan, direct in Japanese since 2055. Aoki/NDXC shows the only
other 11665 station, RTM Wai/Limbang FM, Kajang, Malaysia is supposed
to take over immediately from *2300, but no sign of it. If active, we
used to trace it in our mornings, allegedly straight thru until 1600*;
it`s either that or 9835 left for SW from Malaysia (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6045, Dec 11 at 1224 two stations mixing equally
making fast SAH circa 10 Hz, one YL talk in Korean?, the other music;
1228 both are in music, S8-S9. Per Aoki/NDXC, here`s what`s happening:
two clandestines are fighting each other, so Juche jamming hardly
needs to intervene! National Unity Radio via Dushanbe, TAJIKISTAN at
1100-1300; and V of Freedom from Hwaseong, Korea South at 0858-1406
(also at other very strange blox: 1452-2006, 2058-0206). 1348 recheck,
only one with piano music, i.e. VOF; and not // 6085 Shiokaze (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 739.95, Dec 11 at 1300, news/talkshow in Spanish, making
terrible low het against KRMG 740.00 Tulsa, which if carefully nulled,
partially audiblizes the Mexican, which we know is XEQN, R. F?rmula,
Torre?n, Coahuila. It has appeared on some official listings of
stations which are *not* migrating to FM, unfortunately. It`s been
off-frequency for years (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1570, Dec 11 at 2007 on caradio, Spanish here could be
groundwave from KTUZ Tulsa, but no, it`s already skywave from XERF,
``La Poderosa`` IDs associating that with FM 103.9 as much as with
1570, an IMER station in Ciudad Acu?a, Coahuila. XERF really is
powerful, allegedly 100 kW, while several peanut-power outlets also
brand themselves as Poderosas; who`s to know any better? This is three
hours and ten minutes before our earliest sunset at 2317 UT (Glenn
Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES [and non]. 9450, Dec 11 at 2305, something in Chinese
mixing with a song in somelang. I would like to think the latter be
FEBC Bocaue as scheduled daily 2300-2330 in the Iu language; not a
good idea to confront RTI in Chinese and jamming at 2230-2430. The
only mention of Iu in EiBi`s README.TXT language list is:
``MIE Mien / Iu Mien: S China (0.4m), Vietnam (0.4m) [ium]``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11825, Dec 11 at 1255, RRI closing English hour, VG
S9+10/20. If also propagating this well from *1200, fine for ENAm and
maybe CNAm beyond intended target W Europe. Too bad it`s not an hour
later when more of us are awake, now a time when usually I am not
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3215, Dec 11 at 0635, TOMBS is still going at
S9+30 via WWCR, not off the air at 0600 as scheduled (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 5950, Dec 11 at 1218, VOA news, rather than RAE relay in
Portuguese which continues on 9955 only, vs pulse jamming; 1220
commercial for EZMedicare.com with a very long incomprehensible fast-
speed disclaimer which should drive away any customers who might have
been hooked; Oldies-style WRMI ID by BB claiming to be on 9395! Where
currently there is really a screaming gospel huxter rather like
Blalock the Blaster, but that is really from TOMBS and roughly //
9330+ WBCQ. Anyhow, 12-13 at least is an Oldies hour on 5950 (Glenn

which at this hour I expect to be from R. Kiribati, Kiritimati (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, Dec 11 at 1212, JBA carrier, perhaps 4KZ in
Queensland, the only known broadcaster on this frequency. Nothing on
5045, where Unique Radio has supposed to have occupied the ex-Ozy
Radio channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 7178-LSB, Dec 11 at 2248, pileup here,
numerous hams talking over each other uttering nothing but their own
callsigns over & over & over & over as most of them never get a
contact; interspersed with pauses when everyone is listening, but on
another frequency? Must be a DX-pedition or contest.

Calls copied, not all 100% sure due to QRhaM, despite fonetix: W9BF,
K9RM, KP4S, N2OO, K4ZF, K0KB, KB2FM, W3RJW. Note how many are 1x2
format. At 2251 I sidetune looking for the DX station, and on 7175-LSB
hear WP4N say ``up 3`` but nothing further heard on 7175 in the next
biminute. The only one I look up at QRZ.com is WP4N in case he be the
object of their affexion: Carlos M Osorio, Carolina PR (Glenn Hauser,

ARLS010 Jordan's First CubeSat, JY1Sat, is Designated as JO-97

JY1Sat, launched on December 3 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in
California as part of the SpaceX SSO-A: SmallSat Express launch, has
been designated as Jordan OSCAR 97 (JO-97). The 1U CubeSat is a
project of the Crown Prince Foundation of Jordan. Telemetry has been
received and decoded around the world since the launch.

The spacecraft's name recalls the Amateur Radio call sign of
Jordan's late King Hussein, JY1. JO-97 carries a 435/145 MHz SSB/CW
inverting Amateur Radio transponder and a Slow-Scan Digital Video
(SSDV) system to transmit stored images.

The telemetry downlink is on 145.840 MHz, the transponder downlink
passband is 145.855-145.875 MHz, with an inverting uplink on
435.100-435.120 MHz.

3Y0I BOUVET DXPEDITION NEWS. The following was posted (with pictures)
on December 8th: "3Y0I fire-fighting training completed! -- The team
building and high spirits are crucial when it comes to deal with danger.
And you need firefighter training when you're getting ready to set the
world on fire. :) Seafarers Firefighting Training continues in Cape
Town, South Africa."
  No other details to report, other than there were a few 3Y0I pirates
active recently. Departure dates are still not known. It is still a
mystery... 
  Remember, it takes 12 days to get to Bouvet from South Africa, and they
plan to stay on the island for at least 2 weeks, if the weather cooperates.

BLOCKED/BOUNCED OPDX BULLETINS (Update). Some OPDX Bulletins are still
being BLOCKED. However, the good news is that the bouncing of bulletins
seems to have stopped. The majority of the bounces/blockings are from the
following ISPs: COMCAST, COX and GMAIL. We are not totally sure why this
is happening, but if your ISP blocks the OPDX Bulletin, please send a
complaint to your ISP.
  We were informed this past week that if you use one of the above ISPs
there is away to stop the blocking. If you are an ARRL member, try using
their mail forwarding service (see ).
This service will pass the bulletin through to your ISP.
  If you did not receive the bulletin, there are other ways to receive
it. The bulletin is posted every week at the following URLs:  
      The OPDX (Mailing List) Archives: http://hamnet.org/pipermail/opdx
    The OPDX Web page (provided by John, K8YSE): http://papays.com/opdx.html

     The weekly bulletin (issue #) is also posted (for the above URLs)
   on FaceBook  and
   Twitter . Let's hope this problem will
   clear up. Thanks for your understanding..... 73 de Tedd KB8NW

IOTA NEWS..............
  AS-032.  Take, JS6RRR/JI3DST, will be active from Nishinoomate-City,
           Tanega Island, between 0900z, December 26th and 0000z, January
           7th. He will use the following callsign: JI3DST/6 for DX, and
           JS6RRR/6 & JL3YWN/6 for JA stations. Activity will be on
           80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10/6 meters using CW, SSB, FM, RTTY and

  NA-079.  Operators Faith Hannah (AE4FH), Hope (KM4IPF), and Dad (WX4TV)
           will be operating amateur radio from the Dry Tortugas National
           Park from December 14-17th. Their call will be N4T. QSL via
           WK1DS.
             This trip to the Dry Tortugas is a dry run to see if it is
           feasible to take other young amateur radio operators to the
           island to give them the experience of going on an amateur radio
           DXpedition. If this trip is successful, the plan is to form a
           501-C3 non-profit to begin to take two or three young hams each
           year to the Dry Tortugas or other islands to give them this
           experience.
             The Dry Tortugas are a desired entity in the amateur radio
           world, so the team expects to make lots of contacts during the
           three days that they are on the air from the island. They will
           be operating on HF (shortwave) and also the amateur radio satel-
           lites, in an attempt to contact as many other amateur radio
           operators as possible.
             Reference numbers are: IOTA NA-079, USI# FL013S, WFF ref#
           KFF-0023, GRID EL-84, and the National Parks on the Air: Dry
           Tortugas K-0023.
             To prepare for this trip, the girls and Dad camped in the
           Crane Point Hammock in the Florida Keys and operated during
           the RSGB IOTA Contest in late July, 2018.  The girls gained
           experience in primitive camping skills, preparing food over
           open fires, and operating from a tent with battery and solar
           power.
             The National Park Service and the Yankee Freedom Ferry do
           not allow liquid fuels or accelerants on the island, so they
           needed to find a way to boil water using dry fuel. They tried
           many different ways to boil water for food preparation and
           every one of them failed­until they found the Kelly Kettle.
           They will be using the Ultimate Stainless Base Camp Kit for
           food preparation. Watch the YouTube channel for a video that
           they will be producing about this very soon!
                           
  NA-250.  NEW IOTA! A couple of sources are reporting that operators
           Mike/K9AJ and Bruce/KD6WW are planning to be active from
           Yakutat County Group, Coastal Groups (Alaska), sometime between
           May 10-13th, 2019. Look for more details to be forthcoming.

  PLEASE NOTE: Since the Webmasters of the new  have
  decided NOT to post or dedicate a Web page to announce upcoming IOTA
  operations, PLEASE send your IOTA operations information to the OPDX,
  and we will post it here in an upcoming bulletin......

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs December 8, 2018

** CANADA. 413 kHz, Dec 8 at 0755 UT, beacon YHD, 250 watts from
Dryden, Ontario; must have had a dash but didn`t note it.

406, Dec 8 at 0756 UT, beacon YLJ and dash, 40 watts at Meadow Lake,
Saskatchewan.

401, Dec 8 at 0758 UT, beacon YPO and dash, 500 watts from Peawanuck,
Ontario. Got to be a new one: love these colourful placenames.

Wikipedia: ``Peawanuck is an isolated Cree community in the Kenora
District, Ontario, Canada. It is located near the confluence of the
Winisk and Shamattawa rivers, about 35 km from the Winisk River's end
in Hudson Bay. Its population is 237.`` --- that does not mean it is
anywhere near Kenora in the SW corner of the province! (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CAYMAN ISLANDS.
415 kHz, Dec 8 at 0754, beacon CBC, which is 600
watts from Cayman Brac (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non}. 11920, Dec 8 at 1500, S8-S4 news in perfect French,
RFI? but DPRK clew and stingers leading finally to 1509 ID as ``Radio
Chine Internationale``. This is 150 kW, 240 degrees via ALBANIA at 14
-16 --- the only station anywhen on 11920 per HFCC, but a 5960 could
harmonicize here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 8 at 1511, RHC is S9+10 but suptorted; wiggle that
patchcord! // 15230 sounds OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. UNIDENTIFIED.
17545, Sat Dec 8 at 1546, VP carrier,
the OSOB! (as 17775 KVOH is not on yet or inaudible). Aoki/NDXC shows:

17545 R [sic, only one letter in name column!] 1500-1600 12...67
Amharic 150 122 Issoudun F 4657N 00159E RMI Eritrea b18 Dec.1- 

And EiBi:
17545 1500-1600 F R.V. [sic, 2 letters!]. Eritrea Tig Issoudun 167 

And HFCC:
17545 1500 1600 48NW ISS 150 122 0 227 1267 011218 300319 D 17400 Mul
F RMI TDF 17058 Eritrea

So I ask Jeff White: ``Hi Jeff, Heard a signal on 17545 this morning
(and nothing else on 16m then). It appears to be one of yours --- what
is the real name of this station; contact info? Is the 4-day-a-week
sked correct? Or 3 days as in EiBi. Tnx, Glenn``

He replies: ``Glenn: It?s Saturday only. It?s called Alsmood, but I
don?t have a website or contact info. Jeff``

So I go a-Googling, disregarding sites about ALS:

https://www.facebook.com/alsmood.llaytam
with more than 5 megafollowers

leading to this satellite broadcast:
https://www.facebook.com/elradio9090/

and also linked to this on 88.1/88.7 FM:
https://www.facebook.com/88.7fmNews/?ref=py_c

It`s apparently based in Cairo, but nothing much ``about``
https://www.facebook.com/alsmood.llaytam/about

Nothing found about this SW broadcast, so no positive 17545 connexion
with this disgraced FB info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 6190-USB, Sat Dec 8 at 0730 I struggle to detect Hamburger
Lokalradio when WORLD OF RADIO is scheduled, but not a trace. Would
just like for once to hear me direct on this station. Deep winter
should be the best chance, but too-low MUF and/or too-low power. No
luck either at 1531 UT Saturdays on 9485-CUSB. But it`s mainly for
Europe. And sometimes off the air without notice (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 11900, Dec 8 at 1456, gospel huxter in English at S4-S6,
not noticed before --- because it`s a Saturday-only broadcast of Bible
Voice via Nauen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1300 & 1480, Dec 8 at 1946 UT during bandscan on caradio
for daytime skywave, JBA hets on these two, i.e. ~90 kHz from 1390
KCRC local a mile or so away. The +/- ~30 kHz KCRC spurs near 1360 &
1420 are perpetual and loud enough to listen to, while the weaker ones
+/- ~60 kHz near 1330 & 1450 are also always audible; so now I
conclude KCRC spurs also spew out to the third order. BTW, the KCRC
engineer denies they exist! Despite my hearing the closer 4 anywhere
in Enid on anyradio, and the primary ones a considerable distance on
the road out of Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Some NDB DXing before I doze, tuning down, don`t even get to
400 kHz:

417, Dec 8 at 0752, IY, which is 25 watts from Charles City, Iowa

404, Dec 8 at 0757, HU, 25 watts at Hutchinson, Kansas.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) more: CANADA; CAYMAN ISLANDS

** U S A. 15580, Sat Dec 8 at 2105, VOA`s only hour via Greenville is
S9+30, blasting in during VOA One rock music, but with some IADs
(intermittent audio dropouts). Hardly any announcements past 2130 as I
continue to wish VOA had more diverse tastes in American! music (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1959 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
December 8 at 1209 on Unique Radio via WINB, 9265, as I happen to
awaken; VP S3-S4. Richard Langley, New Brunswick also reports:

``Heard very weakly using the U. Twente SDR receiver today (8
December). So weak, couldn't make out edition # nor most other
information. When WINB signal checked before leaving home at about
1200 UT, nothing could be heard. Propagation not supported to NB``

Saturday Dec 8 at 1531 on HLR 9485-CUSB: nothing audible via UTwente
SDR, possibly a trace at 1558. (See also GERMANY)

I am also wanting to confirm WOR Saturday at 1700 on WRN via WRMI
5950, but keep missing it. Did check at 1747 and could hear JBA signal
in English mentioning Chinese, so that fits for Guangdong Radio at
1730 on WRN. Next:
0400vUT Sunday    WA0RCR  1860-AM [nominal 0415], ND
0830 UT Sunday    WRMI    5850 to NW, 5950 to WNW, 7730 to WNW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. John Carver`s report on this week`s `Allan Weiner
Worldwide`, UT Sat Dec 8 at 00-01 on WBCQ, had not quite yet arrived
in time for my last report, but now:

``Show started more or less on time on 7490 this evening after a bit
of dead air. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan had a small rant
about special prosecutors, equating them with the Inquisition. Said it
was a terrible waste of time and money, achieving nothing but the
ruined lives of a few good people.

Allan stated they were also on 5130 and 9330 but there is another
program on 5130 at this time. Phone caller at 0113 points out to Allan
that there's another program on 5130 at that time. More talk between
Allan and the caller about politics, social media, cellphones etc.
Signal on 7490 starts to diminish around 0132.

Phone call at 0137 from an old listener and some talk about old shows
in the archives. Some talk with Angela about "smart" speakers and how
they can gather information on the owners.

Allan starts reading some old emails at 0148. Mr. Transistor Norm
calls at 0151 and touches base with Allan as it's been awhile since
they've talked. Back to the old emails at 0154. Prayer at 0158. Show
was off the air at 0200 as was 7490. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn
Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Dec 8 at 1453, this WRMI is off; on Saturdays is
supposed to stay on even past 1500; 9395 in well enough (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 21525, Dec 8 at 1905, Radio Africa via WRMI with good
signal, S9+10 even audiblizing some humbuzz like video mix, gospel
huxter in English. Normally it`s a JBA carrier at best, as obviously
getting a temporary winter sporadic E boost.

21610 has VP signal from WHRI, now HFCC registered at 14-19, but
Aoki/NDXC says 16-19 on weekdays, 14-19 on weekends.

Tnx to Es, I also explore the higher non-BC bands: a couple hams on
``15`` meters, 21335-USB and 21300-USB. I cannot copy their co-channel
contacts, and despite some exchanges, no IDs uttered, geez. No
activity on 12 or 10m. On 11m CB, only a hetty pileup on 27025, or
rather dominated by someone on 27024-AM.

18157.5-USB, Dec 8 at 1914, bears a ham in NC contacting someone in
HI, weaker but also audible. Quick ID from NC sounds like ``W1CP,
QRT``. That fits the ARRL lookup, not in New England at all:
PORTOUKALIAN, GEORGE, W1CP, FRANKLIN, NC 28734 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15550-USB, Dec 8 at 1916, WJHR heard for third time here,
ex-15555, now S9 tnx to sporadic E; 15610 WEWN & 15825 WWCR are also
boosted. 15555 was exclusive, but 15550 must avoid 15-16 UT, Tamazuj.

I hasten out to the field and caradio to check for DX reaching FM, but
none heard, so I mainly bandscan on MW which is possibly also affected
by Es, but lowsun now also means non-sporadic night-like E-propagation
is possible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Altho local mean noon is always 1832 UT, I don`t get around
to bandscanning for winter daytime skywave on MW until 1945 UT on
Saturday December 8. I`m on the caradio at the kitefield north side of
Enid away from power lines (but still lite buzz at highband). Nothing
much on lowband, not even WGN-720, but 1090 has something besides KEXS
KS/MO.

1480, Dec 8 at 1947, Spanish music from KBXD Dallas mixing/atop KQAM
Wichita. 1480 also suffers from KCRC-1390 +90 kHz spur; see OKLAHOMA

1510, Dec 8 at 1948, quit-smoking PSA in strong, then fadeout. Got to
be skywave, but what; 1958 Nabisco ad is atop the jumble. PSA for
USNA.edu, pause 10 seconds for ID: ``ESPN Kansas City, KCTE
Independence`` MO plus some FM translators, and back to an Army-Navy
SBG. Also an intriguing LAH (low audible heterodyne) from algo (KCTE
itself off-frequency? I think it used to be).

1560, Dec 8 at 1950 UT, Vietnamese atop CCI in English, i.e. KGOW
Bellaire/Houston already skywaving almost 500 miles.

1600, Dec 8 at 1951 UT, more Vietnamese about equal level to semi-
local KUSH Cushing OK, i.e. KRVA from The Metroplex TX. This language
tends to stand out on the MW dial!

1700, Dec 8 at 1952 UT, TexMexmx, i.e. KKLF Richardson TX inbooming.

1200, Dec 8 at 2004 UT, breaking news from WOAI.com, San Antonio
already propagating, but was not a few minutes earlier (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15359.50-USB, Dec 8 at 1513, 2-way in colloquial Spanish
INTRUDERS, just finishing as nothing further heard in next dekaminute
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0100 UT December 9

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs December 7-8, 2018

** BOLIVIA [non]. 6134.82, Dec 8 at 0049, no signal from R. Santa
Cruz, despite Ron Howard`s reminder that the last two years at least
on this date, they stayed on later than 0400 past usual 0230 closing,
for some mass religious festival. See:
http://lapatriaenlinea.com/?nota=91587
http://goo.gl/P96G9j
But there is a JBA carrier on 6135.13 which would be its nemesis, R.
Aparecida, BRAZIL.

At 0256 Dec 8 recheck, detect a JBA carrier circa 6134.8 even weaker
than Aparecida, and vs stray Cuban pulse jamming to boot (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6180, Dec 7 at 0114, no signal from RNA here (nor
on 11780), so CRI English relay via CUBA is in the clear yet only
poor, generally much inferior to RHC`s own frequencies on 49m.

6180.09, Dec 8 at 0051, RNA is back on with Brazuguese talk, but heavy
crackle on the modulation and breakup on the carrier, which is S9+25
and off-frequency+plus; unlistenable before the 0100 start of
CRI/Cuba, after which the collision will be worse than ever (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 7 at 0112, RHC English again on an hour early,
undermodulated, while 6165 is on but dead air. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

5040, Dec 7 at 0126, RHC is S9+20 but JBM in Kriyol. Something`s
always wrong at RHC.

5040, Dec 8 at 0044, RHC is S9+30 but JBM and suptorted in presumed
English; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA
. 5025, Dec 7 circa 1700 UT (noon in Cuba), R. Rebelde is still
poorly audible on caradio over a more than 2 megameter fulldaypath.
Now I need to start DXing midday skywave on MW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6060, 6000, 5040, Dec 7 at 0726, all RHC
frequencies are off by now; so is this wrong, or right? (Glenn Hauser,

** EGYPT. 9570.199, Dec 7 at 1940, S8-S5 of dead air or maybe JBM ---
I bet it`s Cairo. Yes! The German hour from Abis on ``9570`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND. 3413-USB, Dec 8 at 0040, ``Shannon VOLMET`` YL ID shortly
after tune-in. Always nice to hear this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 9605, Dec 8 at 0058, surprised to hear English
until I realize it`s just a Voice of Martyrs commercial that WHRI
imposes next to its relays of secular foreign broadcasters; 0059 WHRI
ID prior to the Spanish hour of KBSWR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.931, Dec 7 at 1500, JBA carrier matching precise
frequencies heard circa *0200 and presumed to be R. Madagaskikara.
Now, it would be via longpath.

[non] 6135.000, Dec 7 at 1504 I check the other possible Mad channel,
which also has a JBA carrier but right on-frequency. Likely the 500
kW, 200 degrees from Xian CRI English at 14-16; so we may forget about
any Mad LP on 49m this season even if active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY.
11815.711, Dec 7 at 1513, TRT Turkish talk is S9+10/20 and
very off-frequency today unlike 25 hours ago. When logging any VOT
broadcast be sure to check frequency for extravagance (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.48, UT Sat Dec 8 at 0035, three rising tones and a
telephone intercept message; lost a live feed? But then talking about
it. 0059 more of that, WBCQ quick boing ID and 0100 start another
program, *not* Allan Weiner Worldwide any more on this frequency ---
bad news for John Carver and many more who can`t get 7490v or 9330v
well, or at all, on winter nights.

Meanwhile, Larry Will forwarded the latest 5130 schedule update, which

** U S A. 7490.19, UT Sat Dec 8 at 0100, after some silence, S9 but
only fair vs noise WBCQ starts ``William Tell Overture`` and Allan
Weiner`s first Worldwide interjexion is about an ``Inquisition``. Also
JBA on // 9330.1, but no longer 5130v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)
