Glenn Hauser logs November 24-25, 2012

** BRAZIL. 15325, Nov 24 at 1855, no signal detectable from R. Gazeta, São Paulo, vs 15330 Cuban radio war. On the radioescutas group, Cássio Santos reported Nov 18 that he always hears it on a very limited schedule, coming on around 1830 or 1900 and off by 2030 UT. Need to keep checking during these hours (converted from local presumably meaning UT -2 currently); only 1 kW from ZYE964. Martí quits 15330 at 2000, but not necessarily the jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake Nov 25, before 1400:
12370, good at 1351 with flutter
No others found 13-18 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15340, Nov 25 at 1400, RHC modulation suddenly stops on this frequency, but continues elsewhere, and by 1413 has also resumed here.
13740, Nov 25 at 1401, dead air too here for CRI English relay, JIP news at 1402:44. Typical slipshod operation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 5745, Nov 25 at 1344, wall-of-noise jamming mixing about equally with weak R. Martí, now expanded to 11-14 on this frequency, but is the jamming too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 11925, Sunday Nov 25 at 1347, YL in Indonesian about ``Orang Japan`` in conversation with OM, 1349 into song ``Every Hurt`` which is not in English or Indonesian, but Japanese. Good signal but with some IADs.
At 1405, now it`s NHK in English news, better than // 11695 and holding own against 11930 Cuban radio war; 1410 into `Friends Around the World` on ``eating-out day`` Nov 23. 11925 is via HBN USA per HFCC, otherwise known as T8WH PALAU, 100 kW due west at 1315-1430; while 11695 is Uzbekistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 13650, Nov 24 at 1900, ``Huna Kuwait``, Arabic with fair signal, while 15540 English is a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, Sunday Nov 25 at 1300 UT, WKY is dominated by weekly token English pubaffs show, but instead of 30 minutes, it`s back to banda Mexican music already by 1320 recheck (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND. 7120, Nov 25 at 1338, R. Hargeisa presumed in talk, too weak to tell if in English, also CW QRhaM; weaker than Myanmar 7110 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1644 monitoring: 9955, Saturday Nov 24 at 1850, the 1830 airing on WRN via WRMI cannot be confirmed; JBA carrier under jamming. Tnx a lot, Arnie! Nothing in Spanish, let alone Cuban around this time on WRMI as an excuse. Next: Sunday 1630, Monday 0530, Tuesday 1200.
5830, UT Sunday 0500 WOR confirmed on WTWW-1 new frequency; not heard anytime 0200-0600+ on WTWW-2 5085 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Nov 24 at 1901, WTWW-3 very good in Arabic; had been off earlier in the day when Russian usually appears on Saturdays.
9479, Nov 25 at 1343, WTWW-1 is already on here, presumably still changing from 5830 at 1300, not 1400 as DX Re Mix News believes. The reverse switch is at 0000, replacing 0100, not 2300 as DX Re Mix News reports (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 720, UT Sunday Nov 25 at 0610, surprised to hear Milt Rosenberg on WGN, discussion of Judaism. Has his `Extension 720` been rescheduled again? No, website still shows UT Mon-Fri 0400-0600, and after 0600 UT Sunday, `WGN Weekend Late Night`, so maybe that`s an anything-goes repeat filler block (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 930, Sunday Nov 25 at 1300 UT as WKY OKC is starting its token English pubaffs show, I null it to find something else in English, country music, then 1301 ID as ``Colorado Country, 101.9 FM, KRKY, Winter Park`` --- the parts I caught, mentioned other words, maybe the AM frequency, and Granby, its city of license. Then apparently same station into talkshow about free speech, someone paranoid about the Obama administration`s FCC trying to control broadcasting.
In NRC AM Log, FM frequency chex except its real call is K270AL, another case of tail wagging dog in the mad rush by AMers to get on the FM band by any means possible. KRKY 930 is 4500/121 watts non-direxional, and I would be pleased to have heard it at night power, until November official sunrise at 1345 UT (December: 1415). O, KRKY enjoys a PSRA of 500 watts from August thru April, i.e. starting at 1300 UT.
It`s hard to imagine how this translator in such a mountainous area at the SW corner of Rocky Mountain National Park, could have better coverage than AM, unless the FM is atop a peak. FCC shows:
Effective Radiated Power (ERP): 0.25 kW
Antenna Height Above Average Terrain: 0. meters HAAT --
Calculate HAAT [leads to 156 meters, standard disclaimers]
Antenna Height Above Mean Sea Level: 2530. meters AMSL
Antenna Height Above Ground Level: 55. meters AGL
Elevation of the town of Granby itself is 2428 meters, so K270AL is not much higher. Comparing the coordinates of FM and AM, they are almost identical, only the FM latitude being two seconds further south (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Nov 24 at 1908 UT, weak carrier; maybe signs of an incipient TIS? In my nighttime MW scans, I always include 1710 and have yet to hear any sign of the pirates frequently reported from further north and east (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7850, Nov 25 at 1342, CHU has CCI from Spanish 2-way SSB using this as BFO. Is nothing sacred? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15251.0, Nov 24 at 1856, carrier on and off producing one-second beeps with BFO, but unevenly spaced from 4 to 10 sex apart; intruder, anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
