Glenn Hauser logs November 30-December 1, 2012

** AUSTRALIA. 4835, Dec 1 at 1344, poor signal with English talk, no doubt VL8A not yet faded out. Enid sunrise today 1325, but latest sunrise is a month off at 1343 in early January, while we are already near out earliest sunset of 2316 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA [non]. 9625, Dec 1 at 0236, no signal detectable from CBC NQ. Propagation is sub-par, with even Spain very poor on 9620, 9535, but suspect Sackville has finally turned off its last transmitter, as planned for Dec 1 expiration of CKCX license at CBC`s request to CRTC. Not heard later either for what could have been the last newscast at 0600 before regular 0605 sign-off. Nor the next day around 1400 and 1930. Kim Elliott found 9625 missing already at 2226 Nov 30, and others checking since then have not heard it either.
However, something else is on 9625 after 1400, no doubt the usual CCI to CBC, RTI in Vietnamese at 14-15.
What else remains? VOR two-channel DRM is scheduled at 08-14, 15 kW, 220 degrees from Kaliningrad, in English one channel, Russian alternating German on the other. Is anyone hearing this now?
And Channel Africa at 07-16 M-F only in AM, 100 kW, 5 degrees from Meyerton in English at 07-12 and 15-16, with Nyanja, Lozi and Portuguese hours in between.
R. Japan is the only other 9625, from Yamata in English at 1000-1030, Japanese at 1955-2100. Never mind inactive R. Fides, Bolivia, still in Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake, Nov 30 before 2400:
11970, good at 2351 vs nothing, presumably SOH nuisance transmitter
12980, fair at 2351
13530, fair at 2352
13920, fair-good at 2353
14980, good at 2352
15800, fair at 2353
15900, good at 2353; none in the 16s, 17s, 18s, 10s or 9s
Compensating for the lack of most of these in our mornings/their evenings lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 7475 & 9420, Dec 1 at 0556, ERT is // on both, but probably split off 7475 at 0600 for R. Filia, since not // at 0623, as 7475 was playing unannounced calypso/rap; 0631 German announcement mentioning 106.7 MHz and I think 665 [sic] kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA [and non]. 9420v, Dec 1 at 1348, ``banshee`` blob is wobbling back and for across Greece, the way-out-of-whack AIR Aligarh transmitter supposed to be on 9470. Ironically, it will even QRM the // National Channel 9425 from Delhi-Khampur, sites per
BTW, Aoki does not list it on 9470 any more
** INDONESIA. 3325, Dec 1 at 1338, music with fair signal and weaker than NK on 3320, presumably RRI Palangkaraya. 4750, Dec 1 at 1343, similar music to 3325 but not //, from RRI Makassar. Still resemblant at 1357, then at 1358, 4750 with Indonesian announcement mentioning informasi, while 3325 still guitar music, but fading when talk begins at 1400; then 4750 goes back to music instead of newscast. At 1408 it has YL DJ conversing with a caller (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 3320, Dec 1 at 1337, good signal here from Pyongyang BS, and others from DPRK: 3250, also Pyongyang BS but unseems // 3320; 3480 with no het, which is strongest, so this is V. of the People from South to North, per Aoki no longer jammed; and then at 1338, find 2850 with KCBS is strongest off all.
Also heavy noise jamming on 3985 vs Echo of Hope, on 3912 with something under, V. of the People; 4450 and 4557 jamming about equal to Korean talk target, also Voice of the People, all as per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 870, Dec 1 at 1308 UT, talk in Indian language with Spanish terms including ``seguro popular`` several times, a PSA? Then into Spanish mentioning XETAR in passing, i.e. La Voz de la Sierra Tarahumara, in Chihuahua. Not much WWL but it`s too early for it to have faded out completely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 960, Dec 1 at 0600-0605 UT, local KGWA Enid again stops modulating, and this time dominant undersignal is dramatic narration about Pancho Villa, and at 0604 another(?) station weakly audible with Mexican NA. Pancho tribute probably from XEFAMA in Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Nov 30 at 2239 UT, KMOX dominates on caradio, but still Mexican music underneath, SAH of 2.8 Hz this time from KEOR Sperry/Catoosa/Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1390, Dec 1 at 0608 UT, Enid`s other local KCRC is competing with KGWA 960 for dead-air honors, still open carrier at 0615, and nulling this 1390 signal I can hear some understations, but nothing IDable. It`s dangerous to listen long, as earphones are required to pull anything at all, and I don`t know when the ESPN modulation will blast back on, unlike the standard 5:00 minute Fox-hole on KGWA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SARAWAK [non]. 15650, the new clandestine, R. Free Kenyalang, is supposedly Thursday and Friday only, per a story Ron Howard found:
However, Sat Dec 1 at 1354 there was a JBA carrier here much like yesterday, and Kai Ludwig in Germany confirms it was on again today (or at least something on same frequency at same level) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [and non]. 3350, at 0236 Dec 1, REE via CR is back on the air instead of 9630 which was used at least one night instead. 9620 and 9535 direct from Spain are both very poor tonight, substandard propagation from Europe. 3350 and not 9630 still audible at 0554.
5965, Sat Dec 1 at 0615, REE via CR is still here, but talk programming subject unseems from `Amigos de la Onda Corta`, so does that DX program still exist at some other times? José Bueno`s weekly publicity for the show confirms it does, and in fact includes this week an interview with Juan Roldán, director de Radio Exterior de España. Times shown are the same as before, on much reduced frequency list, but may well need to be updated: Sat 0605, Sat 2330, UT Tue 0130.
17595, Sat Dec 1 at 1426, very good bigsig from REE direct is back, // 21610 and even 21540 is atop Kuwait today, interview with an author. Maybe the start of resumption of canceled services to North America as has been reported by Alison Hughes, at least concerning English: keep checking 6055 at 00-01; 15170 in Spanish from CR to NAm is still off, tho there were always scheduling variations on weekends.
Checked at 1919, when Saturday afternoons had been bringing bigsigs from 17850 Costa Rica, and 15110 direct: both still missing. REE weakly heard on 15125 from CR southward, and 11940 direct. In fact the 16m band was just about devoid of signals, despite 13m being open from WHRI 21630 and Guiana French 21690 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1645 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB, UT Saturday Dec 1 starting at 0232, good signal, after some music and ID by Allan Weiner for WREM, in Monticello, Presque Isle (and someplace else) in Maine, i.e. the former call of his WXME 780, as WREM is now 88.7 in Canton NY; I assume something from the Area 51 archives.
More WOR airings: WRMI 9955: Sun 0900, 1630, Mon 0530, Tue 1200. WTWW 5830: UT Sunday 0500. Maybe also sometime early UT Sunday on WTWW 5085, but not noted for the last few weeks. On WRN via SiriusXM 120: Sat 1830.
I asked European listeners to confirm whether WOR was still on HLR 6190, Saturday at 1630: yes, and no German jamming anymore, but way under CNR Xinjiang PBS Mongolian service from Urumchi, East Turkistan, as heard by John Hoadd, and Noel Green, UK; and Dave Kenny who suggests HLR would be much better on a 75m frequency like other Germans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 12105, Dec 1 at 1420, another Saturday without WTWW-3 and its previously regular Russian religious service. 1915 check, only WTWW-1 is on, Ted Randall QSO show on 9479; no WTWW-2 9990 either.
DX Transmissions are scheduled today Saturday Dec 1:
22 to 23 UT, MVBR on 9480 kHz
23 to 24 UT, RGI on 9480 kHz (Repeat broadcast)
Good Listening, 73s says Tom Taylor. These on the 1 kW Goehren, Germany transmitter will have a slight problem from 100 kW WTWW 9479 over here, but that late, will either be heard around Europe? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 660, Dec 1 at 1316, KSKY overtakes an unID Mexican, in English, soon ID as ``660 AM The Answer`` and Mark Davis show. Replying to my previous log, David R. Block in The Metroplex says,
``"The Answer" promo originated in KSKY 660 being the answer to the
question "Where is Mark Davis?" Davis, leaving WBAP 820 in a salary
dispute with Cumulus, landed at KSKY 3 months later. KSKY 660 transmitter facility is in kind of a no-mans-land between the
cities of Carrollton and Lewisville off Business 121 and Huffines
Road. KVCE 1160 nighttime facilities are only about 100 yards east of
660. Both are right on a Carrollton Golf Course. (FORE!!!) They may both be legally in the town of Hebron.``
Had KSKY just gone to day power of 20 kW instead of 700 watts night? Not supposed to, until official December sunrise of 1330, ex 1300 in November, and no PSRA listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1010, Dec 1 at 1306 UT, the unique voice of Don Imus, loops NE/SW --- surprised to hear him on a Saturday, but nearest affiliate on 1010 is KIND Independence KS, per his website, which makes us click on each state individually rather than searching on a frequency, so there could be others. Supposedly scheduled M-F 5-8 am CST (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1100, Dec 1 at 1337, ad for carpet cleaner, area code 210, i.e. San Antonio, i.e. KDRY, 11/1 kW, Alamo Heights TX. December official FCC sunrise is 1315 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNID 1100
UNIDENTIFIED. 660, Dec 1 at 1314 UT, mentions ``el maestro de Mazatlán`` and several parroquias; based on that I would have presumed a Maz. station except there aren`t any Sinaloans or even Sonorans on 660. And XETNT Los Mochis, formerly dominant around sunrise, was not to be heard on 650, just a SAH. At 1316, 660 overtaken by KSKY, see U S A (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 850, Dec 1 at 1319 UT, someone is playing choral `Star Spangled Banner` with nice harmonies, in null of KOA, but fade out before any ID can be heard. There is certainly no US station to the SW, but 1315 UT is the Dec LSR for KEYH in Houston, while KJON in Carrollton TX must wait until 1330, both direxional daytimers.
Then there`s non-direxional daytimer KFUO in Clayton MO, where December sunrise is also 1315. Playing our national anthem is so rare these days that odds are only one of them does it at sign-on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1100, Dec 1 at 1326 UT sports talk about OU, but no Oklahoma station here; soon losing out to gospel, no doubt KKLL Webb City MO. What could the first one be? If ESPN network, could be 22/2 kW KWWN Las Vegas NV, but more likely just a regular talker, KNZZ Grand Junxion CO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
