Glenn Hauser logs May 17-18 2014

** ALGERIA [non]. 11985, May 17 at 0623, Qur`aning, poor-fair. It`s RTA via FRANCE during this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ANGUILLA [and non]. 1610, May 17 at 0555 UT, can barely make out from the southeast PMS // 6090, as well as harp music from the northeast, surely CHHA Toronto. Usually these very weak signals are both blocked by IBOC from 1600s in St Louis and Denver; can both of those be off IBOC now, or forever? Again no IBOC from either angle around 0155 UT May 18 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA. 5580.3, May 18 at 0108 not only a carrier but some music audible, from presumed R. San José, allegedly only 250 watts per WRTH 2014, with closing varying around 0200. I check for this most evenings, but seldom anything detectable. There is still too much local line noise to copy anything, but the carrier is still there at rechex 0119, 0132, 0141, 0153 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11925v, May 18 at 0127, ``Minute Waltz`` is playing with het; // 9645v with no het, so surely R. Bandeirantes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammer at unusual time:
17790, May 17 at 0609, CNR1 jammer, poor; victim is RFA Chinese via Saipan during this hour only, per Aoki
12910, May 17 at 1233, CNR1 jammer, fair, with ``CJKT/ZRGD`` ID; none in the 10s, 13s, 142, 16s, 17s, 18s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also TIBET [non]
** CYPRUS. 9958-9973, May 18 at 0101, OTH radar pulsing, presumed from here, quite strong, and no 9965 Cairo to impede it; 9955 WRMI strong enough not to be bothered (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 11710, 12070, 9965, 9315, May 18 at 0101, once again tonite, all four R. Cairo frequencies are absent like 24 hours ago. In the meantime, or anytime since, has anyone heard any other Cairo broadcasts? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** HONDURAS. 18135-USB, May 17 at 0615, HR2DMR, Dan, making contest contacts with Japan, Romania, etc., as the band is quite open here in the nightmiddle. Says he is listening 5-up. Here`s the page of Dan Mejía R.: (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 770, May 18 at 0158 after a SW monitoring session for an hour, I check for KKOB NM, but stronger signal is in Spanish, full ID with 25 kW, street address in Monterrey NL, telephone numbers, ``770-AM, una emisora más del Grupo Fórmula``, then rejoining net for item about Colonia del Valle en México DF. So it`s XEACH but its night power is allegedly only 1 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Sporadic E analog TV DX, May 17, UT:
1345 first check, nothing
1426 on 2, Sabadazo program bug in LL, from net-2, I think, but can`t see a net bug; CCI. Zero 6m ham activity is showing in North America on the Dxmap and the G7IZU map! 
(Later I notice that Sabadazo is on Univisión in the USA Saturday at 17-21 UT: watch a bit of it: insipid studio variety show, with kids, clown at the moment mentioning which woman has the best legs.)
1429 on 2, Televisa net-5 promo, CCI, animation with feline creatures, net 5 bug in LR. Soon fades out; occasional traces of video later in morning but nothing more. Now there is some very minimal 6m ham activity on the maps (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sunday May 18 at 0131, The Mighty KBC, with Kim`s Radiogram, he said a plug for NASWA, 1 minute and 3 seconds. 0145, an Italian novelty song playing, probably Kraig Krist`s feature. Since WTWW-2 has been reactivated on 9930, and since evening extension to 0200, instead of moving to 5085 at 0000, now there is mutual adjacent interference, especially when either or both are in music. As time goes on, WTWW weakens a little, but not enough (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 15120-AM, May 17 at 0607, VON is audible but undermodulated with whine, YL talking, presumably news (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, May 18 at 0116 novelty song, poor-fair; 0117 ID? But couldn`t copy it, 0118 back to music, seems all music past 0130; at 0134 ID with a address, more music, still going at 0155, to very poor level. This thread,17041.0.html
says it`s Northwoods Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.0-USB, May 18 at 0133 I notice that a much stronger pirate than 6935 has come on, with jazz/jive/YL scat song. Bet it`s Wolverine Radio. Yes, per 2-word ID at 0138 after ``Do That Shake Dance, Mama`` at 0136; after another song, at 0140 ``Save the Last Dance for Me``, so tonight`s theme is songs about dancing, and/or with dance in the title. Bet we never hear ``Dance of the Hours`` -- what have these pirates got against classical music?? Turned out this was widely heard by DXLD yg monitors, catching several other ``dance`` songs. I`ve been monitoring on the porch, with reel-out antenna plugged in, but as I go inside at 0157 ID, this is sufficiently strong to keep listening past 0200 on the PL-880 with whip aerial only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 4600, May 18 at 0112, JBA modulation from local Enid mix // 1390 KCRC ESPN audio. But our other strong signal, 960 KGWA has to be involved. Formula: 4 x 1390 = 5560, minus 960 = 4600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5460, May 18 at 0109, JBA carrier here, probably R. La Voz de Bolívar, which WRTH says runs until 0130. With BOLIVIA in on 5580, always check for its companion WOOB South American (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 18 at 0105, R. Chaski carrier and some talk modulation until chopoff at 0111:31.5* which is 6 seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 15160, May 18 at 0138, American-accented talk in English for most of a minute about ``letting too many people into the lifeboat``, i.e. refugees; must be Australia? No, not // 17840, and when I get back to 15160, YL in Castilian is taking over. So it was just REE Spanish with a long English clip, which I don`t think was directly translated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 18 at 0114.4 tune-in, OC already on, 0114:46 drumming starts, 0115:17.5 the 2+1 timesignal ends, SLBC opening Bangla; fair with flutter, soon down to poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 19000, May 17 at 1242, CCI audible along with the Wadley Loop MHz birdie, i.e. CNR1 jammer and/or VOT via Kuwait, which during this hour is on Saturdays (and Wednesdays) uses 19000, per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1721 monitoring: missed checking WTWW-2, 9930 at 2330 Saturday May 17, but at 0025 May 18, Brother Scare was playing so since Ted Randall`s QSO show was absent, WOR probably was too; right? WOR 1721 confirmed on WTTW-1, 5830, UT Sunday May 18 from 0400:26. The WRMI-14, 9495 airing, UT Sunday May 18 at 0030 was however, again a replay of previous show 1720. Next: UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110v-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
** U S A. 7490.1, May 18 at 0124, WBCQ as expected has drifted down since yesterday on 7490.2; and now it no longer matches the offset of WRNO, still on 7505.2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 960, May 17 at 0502 UT, the ``Let It Be`` station again, playing instrumental-only version of the Beatles` song at the same hour as previously heard a few times, so a midnite ritual? Perhaps a (pseudo?)-Catholic station? This time it`s strong enough that I can get a rough bearing on it underneath the KGWA Fox-hole open-carrier, not just at the KGWA null --- and it`s sort of north/south, which rules out WABG in Mississippi. That would fit for XEK Nuevo Laredo, but we already know and frequently hear it playing the Mexican NA and/or XEW chimes at this time. KGKL in TX and KMA in IA are ruled out, since they both run ABC News during this pentaminute, sometimes reverbing against each other.
KNEB in Scottsbluff NE, 350 watts, is also on ABC network, but not sure what they are doing; C&W format listed in NRC AM Log 2013. KIMP in Mount Pleasant, NE TX is SS:Nostalgia, with 75 watts at night, not logged yet. Further ones N/S-ish with less than 100 watts night are KFLN in Baker MT, C&W Real Country, Fox; KLTF, Little Falls MN, talk, Fox, etc. There is another Mexican a little further beyond XEK: Saltillo, Coahuila, XEKS, ranchera/internacional format, per IRCA Mexican Log 2013. There`s some internet resource identifying which stations are playing which music, but I`ve never tried to use it, especially if must be in real time, and I don`t see how it can be anywhere near complete (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1120, May 17 at 0603 UT, no sign of the Spanish/music station in KMOX null that I was hearing during this hour May 15, nor was it there on May 16, making me suspect KEOR OK more as an occasional nighttime cheater. KTXW has supposedly been calling itself ``La Zeta 11-20``, rather than ``La Nueva 11-20`` which is what I thought I heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 2660.02 approx, May 18 at 0142, JBA carrier a smidge on the hi side, which I suspect is KGLD Tyler TX harmonic as previously heard on 2 x 1330. Noise level not too bad here; my streetlight does not ignite until *0147/0148 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0502 UT May 18
