Glenn Hauser logs April 26-27, 2014

** CHINA. 13830, April 26 at 1318, Firedrake is mainly the jamming to be heard here, fair-good; bandscan to 1335 finds no others or CNR1 jammers 12-18 MHz except the three 15-MHz inbanders on 15115, 15195, 15265 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 4709, April 27 at 0103, R. Progreso spur again tonight, very distorted but easily matchable to audio on fundamental 4765 which sounds OK; and also 56 kHz on the plus side, 4821, both approx. with no carrier to pinpoint. But wait, there`s more:
4737 & 4793, April 27 at 0117, two weaker semi-spurs at half the displacement, wobbling 28 kHz above and below 4765: only way to match these to fundamental is by the beat of the music and the pauses; song in English at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, April 26 at 0544, R. Rebelde is off. Also off April 27 at 0120 check, with the 5040 leapfrogs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, April 26 at 0542, this RHC English frequency is off, so they have to struggle along with only four bigsigs on 49 and 59 meters. Collaterally, this clears up 6005 for BBC, tsk2.
11670, 11760, 11840, 13740, April 27 at 0132 check, RHC Spanish with VG signals on all, as well as 6060, 6070; and weak ones on 15230, 9810. 11760 still used evenings, not 9550 as on RHC schedule at 21-05!
** EGYPT [and non]. 11710.06 approx., April 27 at 0131, open carrier with good signal, and clearly unmodulated, i.e. R. Cairo, and this being a weekend, no Argentina to het it, that transmitter still on 15345v with R. Nacional (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, April 27 at 0125, Greek vocal music, VG signal and this time no signals on any of the other ex-ERT frequencies. This is the date for the new NERIT to be inaugurated, so will this regularize, or abolish, shortwave? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 9790, April 27 at 0127, Qur`an, fair with flutter but weaker than 9770 Turkey. EiBi shows 9790 at 0120-0220 is IRIB via Sirjan in Kazakh (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** MEXICO. 1320, April 26 at 0515 UT, dominant signal roughly from the south is Mexican music; automated IDs between every song, 101.7 FM and something on AM, with a variety of slogans mostly uncopiable by super-hype voice actor (SHVA) except always ending with primary one, ``La Poderosa``; 0522 the song is in English, ``Stand By Me``; 0531 a fuller ID mentions Coahuila, and Piedras Negras. Of course, I figured it would be XECPN, but don`t you believe it`s on night power of 100 watts, as in IRCA, WRTH and also Cantú:
1320 XECPN La Poderosa + FM 101.7 Piedras Negras, Coah. 10,000 100
IRCA disagrees on day power, of 20,000 watts. Could be. Can hardly claim the ``powerful`` slogan without cheating at night! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.5-AM, April 27 at 0100, pirate with big band music; 0103 outro as Glenn Miller, ``Pennsylvania 6-5000``. ``This is James Stewart on M-A-C Shortwave Radio; will be back again``. Reports to This was The Jimmy Stewart Show, in a vocal simulation, ``let us know if you enjoyed it; it`s 1:05 UTC, ending with more of a mood song``, 0106 ``Love Is Blue``, hard to follow the lyrix, but maybe not the standard ones. 0108 last few notes of `Star-Spangled Banner`, raucous laughter to 0109 open carrier for a bit. After that was not listening carefully, but something was speaking on USB --- peskies? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, April 27 at 0101, another pirate going here while MAC is on 6950; I`m running both the DX-398 and the PL-880 on the porch. Vocal music, weaker signal. 0111 after 6950 and 5980 are off, fuller attention to this one: announcing the music; 0118 ``Radio Free Whatever`` ID; next check at 0128 it`s off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-USB, April 27 at 0141, best sig from a fourth pirate on now which was not on when 6950.5 and 6925 were being monitored. Playing ``Crazy`` by Patsy Cline, 0143 segué another crazy love song, with a soul sound; 0145 ``Wolverine Radio`` ID, and another song, ``Gimme Love, Love, Love, Crazy Love`` so we see what the theme is tonight. By chance the exact frequency falls between the 40-Hz tuning steps on the DX-398, so the music never sounds quite right until I switch to the PL-880 with 10-Hz steps (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 9800-AM, April 27 at 0127, I encounter Station YHWH as I am bandscanning, now easy to recognize by voice and monomaniacal subject; citing or debunking Ezekiel XXVIII. Only poor signal, declining to very poor at 0141 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 27 at 0057, R. Chaski carrier with severe splash from 5990 Cuba; then clear for a yet later cutoff at approx. 0109:30.5* which is 11.5 seconds later than two nights ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 27 at *0114:15 open carrier on with flutter, poor signal; 0114:46 SLBC music starts --- mostly drumming this time; it`s not always the same. 2+1 mistimesignal ends at 0115:19, opening Hindi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1718 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-2, 9930, Saturday April 26 starting at 2330:14, usual excellent signal. Also #1718 an hour later on WRMI-14, 9495, sufficient from 0030 UT Sunday April 27. 
The 0401 UT Sunday airing on WTWW-1, 5830: bigsig dumped off the air for a sesquiminute just as I was saying ``This is ---``. Why does this keep happening? Fingers crossed to keep on for the rest of the semihour. Nope: off again at 0409 for another sesquiminute. Next: UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; Tuesday 1100 & Wednesday 1315 on WRMI, 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9370, April 26 at 0540, WWRB is off again, after having run the day Overcomer frequency also several overnights. 9370 also off April 27 at 0120, while 3185 is on with BS and 5050 is back on with other programming, subject to dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, April 26 at 0544, WTWW-2 is off, so we`ll have to make do with only half a dozen other Brother Scare frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505.2, April 27 at 0121, very poor carrier, unlike WRNO`s bigsig reactivation last night, independently estimated then at 7505.26. Since no other broadcaster at all is currently scheduled on 7505 anywhere near this hour, per HFCC, Aoki and EiBi, I conclude that this is probably WRNO on exciter only of a few watts. EiBi dated April 17 does not even list WRNO on 7505 or any nearby frequency, apparently removed during its 5-week inactive period (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 1480, Saturday April 26 at 1245 UT, ``El Paso`` by Marty Robbins from N/S, during `Cowboy Corner` syndicated show, so is it Wichita or Dallas? 1252 UT ad for Texas Rangers, so there`s our answer, KBXD Dallas, not 100% politico-religious despite carrying Rick Wiles and Brother Scare (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0412 UT April 27
