Glenn Hauser logs November 21, 2012

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Nov 21 at 1347 and a couple later chex, no sign of LRA36. We may have to wait until February (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CROATIA [non]. 7375, Nov 21 at 0209, fast SAH as usual from the two Nauen, GERMANY transmitters broadcasting Voice of Croatia to South and North America; also some `reverb` indicating a slight mismatch in modulation timing. I have now notified M&B about the frequency mismatch, so we`ll see if and when that gets fixed. You`d think every SW transmitter would have a fine-tuning control for the frequency, but apparently not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11840, Nov 21 at 0556, sign-off of RHC Spanish service is *still* announcing years-out-of-date frequency lineup for the morning transmission from ``1100`` (really 1200 in winter): 15120, 15360, 13760; from *13 13680, 13780; 11760, 12000; 9600 until 13*; 6000, 6180 until 13*. The only ones of these they are still using in mornings are 13780, 11760! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUIANA FRENCH. 5844, 5926, 5994, 6076, Nov 21 at 0205 check, NHK 5960 relay is still putting out dirty spurblobs around these frequencies among others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11510, Nov 21 at 1440, enjoying the Kurdish music from Denge Kurdistan via PRIDNESTROVYE; much preferable to all the Kurdish talk emanating from VOA 13580 via Wertachtal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 730, Nov 21 at 1340 UT, ``Que Buena, 107.1 FM`` ID and music; oops, must misspell it, make that Ke Buena, as in Cantú:
730 XEHB Ke buena + FM 107.1 Hidalgo del Parral, Chih. 50,000 1,000
This was the only significant XE signal as I scanned the entire band 25 minutes after sunrise here. And was one of the regulars during the NW Mexican SRS peak season in Sept-Oct, now apparently well over (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
A. 960, UT Wed Nov 21 at 0600, KGWA Enid fails to stop modulating, instead Fox ``news``, so no understation DX tonight. It`s been quite a while since this happened (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Nov 21 at 0605 UT, romantic Spanish music best with KMOX nulled, making SAH of 2.8 Hz this time: Daytimer KEOR, Sperry/Catoosa/Tulsa, continues to test with no announcements ever heard, apparently all-night so certainly DXable at distance if you can get past KMOX. Just don`t expect to hear any ID. Bruce Winkelman and I will vouch for its source (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND. 7120, Nov 21 at 1503, JBA carrier perhaps from R. Hargeisa starting its evening broadcast. Did not check it before 1403* today so why not now? It`s really late, 108 minutes after sunrise here. With BFO, compared to other -120 signals, weak broadcasters on 12120, 15120, plus KEOR 1120, and found all of them were at slightly different pitches/precise frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15746 approx., Nov 21 at 1345, FMy spurblob in Spanish news, quickly matched to VOA `Buenos Días América` from Greenville on 15590, and furthermore to a twin 156 kHz below there, 15434 (but no doubles of those detectable around 15278 or 15902) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5050, Nov 21 at 0211, WWRB is still back on, and now // 3195 with gospel music, hymn apparently derived from Psalm LIV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7506.4, Nov 21 at 0208, WRNO is off the air for the second night. They might as well give up on this POS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 930, Nov 21 at 1335 UT, deep-nulling of groundwave from WKY OKC continues to be productive: news in English about record harvest of bears (???), Wisconsin Public Radio news, wpr.org mentioned, WLBL. I suppose it`s programmed out of WHA Madison, despite the local ID. This is 5 kW when on day power, from Auburndale, which is otherwise too insignificant to appear in my Rand McNally atlas index. FCC AM Query topo map shows: ESE of Marshfield in Wood County, a significant 19-kiloperson town, in turn SW of Wausau in the center of the state, no doubt no accident, an ideal spot to plant this non-direxional service. But only 70 watts at night for the Auburndalians. As for the ``bear harvest``, it must have been deer:
BTW, I listen every Sunday at 1830-2000 UT to WPR online, but that`s the other classical stream, live concerts from an art museum. At intermission they talk about the exhibits, which is sort of frustrating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1200, Nov 21 at 1323 UT, plug for some Univision (TV) show, news reports mixing English and Spanish. Dominant over WOAI. Must be WRTO Chicago, which is a Univisión América (they skip the accents, but I sure won`t) affiliate; not only the single one listed on 1200 in the 2012 NRC AM Log, but the only 1200 SS in the US. Previous unID of a Mexican here could have been this too. Other Chicago clears were still audible shortly after sunrise here at 1315 but 1248 in Chicago per gaisma.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1480, Nov 21 at 1314 UT tune-in, no waiting for an ID: ``The more you listen, the better you feel, KBXD, Dallas`` and into a quarter-hour of `The Power of Pentecost`, featuring pre-Thanksgiving hymn, ``Thank God for the Blood``. Oooh. Dominant signal on frequency. Today`s Enid sunrise: 1315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1040, Nov 21 at 0601 UT, in WHO null with 4 Hz SAH, ``Smoke Gets In Your Eyes``, 0603 Spanish song by a gringo, ``Acompáñame``. I`m suspecting Cuba; only 1040 listed in WRTH is Radio Mayabeque, but seems to be a full-service station; programación link at http://www.radioguines.icrt.cu/ is 404, but they do have an English sexion.
How about Mexico? Here`s a fit in IRCA 2011 Log: XEHES Chihuahua, whose very name is ``Romántica``, 24 hours irregular, 5000/250 watts. In the NRC AM Log 2012, there are several SS US stations on 1040, but all talk, sports or religion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11485, Nov 21 at 1508, JBA carrier with trace of modulation, then gone, worth further chex. Could be spur, as 11500 is the defacto bottom end of the 25m band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 21473 approx., Nov 21 at 1358, some SSB ham is here, or rather putting out a spur, since I can`t get it to demodulate no matter how I tune it; nor could I find a matching source below 21450, but there must have been one for him to carry on a contact on the fundamental. Hams are alert for intrusions of broadcasters on 21450 or below, so here`s the reverse, but I`ll bet no one cares. Too close for comfort to BBC 21470, altho its signal does not build up here until 1400 site switch from Seychelles to doomed Cyprus, which is often listenable despite southwardness (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
