Glenn Hauser logs November 6, 2013

** ALBANIA. 7465, Nov 6 at 0033, fair signal with music but low modulation, no QRM, presumed the daily Albanian language service of R. Tirana to North America at 00-01, here and now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRIA. 7300, Nov 6 at 0641, TWR music-box IS is already going, VG // much weaker 5910 but without any HJ QRM audible. Polish starts at 0644 on both, synchronized via Moosbrunn. 7300 is the one aimed 300 degrees toward us, and 5910 the one really toward Poland (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRIA. 15440, Nov 6 at 1404, fair signal with S Asian song; HFCC shows AWR Urdu at 1400-1430 via Moosbrunn.
17605, Nov 6 at 1443, Horn of Africa music, good signal with birds tweeting, talk; it`s AWR Afar service daily at 1430-1500 via Moosbrunn (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 6070, Nov 6, CFRX is still missing, depriving SWLs of hearing Mayor Ron Ford`s show, which TV clips remind us is/was on CFRB, per placard proudly displayed on the mic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 7220, Nov 6 at 1358 JBA carrier, but no REE IS audible, some other music. So CRI may have finally removed the anomaly from the pre-Nepali service via Kunming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 4765, Nov 6 at 0035, R. Progreso not on, nor at 0113, but it is on at next check 0141 with music; so sign-on moved an hour later from 0030 to 0130. Haven`t yet caught closedown, but supposedly circa 0500 ex-0400, altho one night it was still on closer to 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE. 15530, Nov 6 at 1403, poor signal in French with crowd noises, mentions RFI several times; this is axually scheduled as their Russian service daily at 1400-1430 from Issoudun. I wonder if they have defaulted to French language fill with another strike, like they used to do frequently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9526-, Nov 6 at 1336, tell-tale het against VOA/CNR1 on 9530, but not much VOI modulation to be heard; at least denoting it`s back after absence since last heard Oct 29 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1694, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 660, Nov 6 at 0601 UT, multi-verse choral NA, 0605 full ID by SHVA mentions location in Colonia Centro, Zacatecas, FM 105.9 ``de lo más alto del cuadrante``, then jazzed-up version of `Ghost Riders in the Sky`. I thought this would be easy to look up, but in Cantú and IRCA there are *no* Zacatecans on 660, and no FM // matches either. Maybe Zacatecas was part of a street address rather than the city or state itself: there ought to be a law. Couldn`t copy more due to considerable QRM, including another XE with NA coming up underneath first station at 0607. Of the nine Mexicans on 660, I`ve previously IDed XEEY, XEACB, XEDTL, XEFZ and likely two of those (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, Nov 6 at 0035, JBA carrier could be Chaski, or ChiCom jamming or even VOA Tibetan via Sri Lanka; After 0100, it must be Chaski, but now mixed with pulse jamming from Cuba, until carrier cut at 0103:09.5*, which is 16.5 seconds later than last check three nites ago. 
This and other logs this evening are not on the porch with DX-398 due to a thunderstorm, but instead on the FRG-7 and inside random wire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 21630, weaker than // 21610, and also weakest // 21540 under Kuwait, Nov 6 at 1441, REE Noblejas, all with some long/short path echo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1694, after DST and frequency shifts: first airing to be 
Thursday November 7 at 2201v on WTWW-1 9479 [soon to shift to 9475]; UT Friday 0427v on WWRB 3195 [and maybe 5050]; 
UT Saturday 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB;
Saturday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio, Germany, 7265-CUSB;
Saturday 1600 on WRMI 9955;
UT Sunday 0029v on WTWW-2 5085, if now shifting from 9930 at 0000;
UT Sunday 0501v on WTWW-1 5830;
UT Monday 0029v on WTWW-2 5085 [maybe, reported last week at 2330 on 9930] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1694, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9930, Nov 6 at 0030, WTWW-2 is still on here instead of 5085; 9479, Nov 6 at 0030, WTWW-1 is still on here instead of 5830. Both have shifted to 5 MHz after 0100. George McClintock tells me that within a few days, the night changeover time will be 0000 UT for both (and the wtww.us website already shows this, along with morning QSYs at 1400). Then at 1333 Nov 6, 5085 is on, but both 5830 and 9479 are off. Furthermore, 9479 will be standardized by Nov 8 to 9475, on request of VOA to avoid interference to 9480. I see in Aoki (not HFCC, of course) that 9475 is also in use by R. Australia from 1100 to 1900, but I think it`s toward Asia, never much signal here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1694, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3215, Nov 6 at 0037, WWRB has Dave in a rant again, making mocking voices, about 99% of Christians being lip-service full of crap, and 1% true Christians: prove which you are by calling 931-728-6087 and booking airtime on WWRB. Then 0039 dead air for at least a minute as maybe he`s answering the phone or cooling off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15550-USB, Nov 6 at 1406, `Rock of Ages` theme on keyboard/banjo, and WJHR signing on; 1409 pause and bring up gospel huxter introducing his tape #4, that there is ``no evidence whatsoever for evolution``, apparently aimed at kids but also connecting this with the New World Order; choppy modulation. Now we know how really wacko this mono-huxter station is. Clock may be 6 minutes slow as previous sign-off was well after 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 830, Nov 6 at 0647 UT, WCCO with guest from http://www.astronomy.com/ison about viewing the comet, best late in November. I have to null cheating WFNO Norco LA and its Mexican music to hear WCCO in the clear at night. WCCO show I think is also on KMOX, other CBS stations, originating in Boston? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 3975, Nov 6 at 0637, VR with Latin mass // stronger 6075, and still not heard on 9645. Last winter 3975 could do quite well here, best signal from Europe on 75m, but now some SSB QRhaM before they start avoiding it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. TA carrier, Nov 6 at 0653: het on 910 from 909; too late to do a full search (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0550 UT November 7
