Glenn Hauser logs July 3-4 , 2014

** AUSTRALIA. 13630, July 4 at 0517, very good signal from R. Australia which is modulating again, unlike 23-24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 4754.9, July 4 at 0117, music and Portuguese talk on poor signal but again one of the best from Brazil on 60m, presumed R. Imaculada Conceição, MS.
4915v, July 4 at 0119, the two ZYs colliding here as usual making a slightly variable LAH, one with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 5990+, July 4 at 0133, RNA audio exactly synchronized with 6180 and 11780; checking since Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal recently reported a ``slight delay`` of the audio on 5990 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 17485, Fri July 4 at 1405, CNR1 jammer, good signal with rippling SAH, and // synchro 17740 also with a SAH? 17485 is vs VOA Tibetan via Thailand M/W/F, while Aoki still knows of no target on 17740. Cursory bandscan after 1405 finds no other CNR1 jammers 12-19 MHz except 15 MHz inbanders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 12060, July 4 at 0126, JBA pulse jamming fading in and out, obviously 2 x 6030 against Martí where there`s a wall of noise. Just one in the pileup of jammers is emitting this double. Has QRM from much stronger filthy 12070 Cairo transmitter splatter, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935, July 4 at 0123, ERT Open, good with Greek music just as strong as // 9420 and weaker // 15630 with fair signal. Extremely unusual to be using 9935 during this time period; it was once for the separate Makedonia station before local midnite. Fortunately, no 9930 WTWW to compete with. That accounts for the transmitter trio at Avlis, and routine check of 7450, 7475, 11645 and 15650 finds no signals there. John Babbis in MD who monitors ERT every day from 19 past 02 UT, missed 9935, reporting only 9420 this date, not 15630 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MADAGASCAR. 17670, July 4 at 1303, romantic-sounding SE Asian song, 1307 Vietnamese announcement, fair signal. It`s AWR`s hour until 1400 via Talata-Volonondry (not Volondry as in Aoki), 250 kW, 60 degrees toward Vietnam, of course; yet we are getting it way, way, offbeam on the other worldside, another testament to the broad reach of this near-antipodal MGLOB relay site. (Vietnamese on 1600 KRVA is better still from TX.)
Maybe to be matched by Madagascar World Voice if it ever get on air following some progress reported lately at NASB, altho own website
still shows no such news, latest update only for first quarter 2014, now that we are in the third quarter! Flime ties (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6770.0, July 4 at 0512, JBA carrier, presumably the old-time-radio pirate, rather than 6770.6. Hasn`t made it better than that here for weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6876, July 4 from 0110 to 0136, kept checking for relay of The Crystal Ship, which John Poet had alerted us at 0042 would start by 0130 with Fourth of July special, but no show. Brandon Jordan kept listening and did hear it from 0146 to 0329; sorry we missed it! Please relent and make it web-available.
This thread, starting with wrong frequency 6976, includes detailed logs of the content:
** NORTH AMERICA. 6935- in AM, July 4 at 0510, JBA carrier, presumably a pirate. This thread
says it was Radio True North, on the air, very, very late. Very slightly on the lo side compared to 5935 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 627, 640 and 653, KWPN Moore seems to have dropped IBOC --- while it`s hard to prove a negative without constant monitoring, it seems to me from many random bandscans mostly on caradio, that I have not heard any IBOC from this for several weeks. Before that it had been sporadic, in the daytime only. Good riddance! This comprehensive listing of IBOC
still shows KWPN in black instead of green, also with N* for Nighttime operation? Meaning No, but --- whatever the asterisk signify (Glenn Hauser, Enid, July 4, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1230, July 4 at 1229 UT, WBBZ Ponca City is reporting a large power outage on the east side of PC, unknown cause but can`t be weather; threatening people on oxygen. Utility no doubt working on restoring, but may be slower due to holiday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15355, July 4 at 0113, Arabic from RSO again on wrong frequency after 0000 instead of 9500. This seems to happen at least half the time now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, July 4 at 0113, R. Chaski carrier with some modulation making it until cutoff at 0116:03*, surpassing yet another minute mark, 5.5 seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7305, July 4 at 1159* just caught Greenville signing off the Vatican relay, violating SOCAS; so evidently not enough wind from Arthur that far inland to cause a problem, unlike the Winds of Change blowing thru IBB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1728 monitoring: confirmed on webcast of WBCQ 7490, Thursday July 3 at 2100. NOT confirmed on webcast of WTWW-1, instead playing Amateur Radio Newsline until 2130 July 3. I had to check this since 9475 was off the air. Ted Randall has become increasingly hostile, and may have canceled WOR via WTWW also at other scheduled times!
WWRB was carrying Brother Scare again, UT July 4 at 0121 on 5050 instead of on 3185 or 9370, and he was still on 5050 at 0330 when it`s time for WORLD OF RADIO. Checking the webcast, WOR did start promptly at 0330, and subsequently found us back on 3185 instead. So has all WWRB 3185 programming been flipped with BS on 5050, or just an anomaly tonight? At 0506 check, BS back on 3185, and 5050 off. Next:
Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Saturday 2330 on WTWW 9930 (probably not! missing last two weeks)
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495 (may be previous episode)
UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW 5830 (messed up last week, canceled now?)
UT Monday 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2130 on WRMI 15770 (NEW, Jeff White tells us, on 44 degrees to Europe, but also good for east coast North America)
Tuesday 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
** U S A. WTWW apparently has severe transmitter problems, causing all these anomalies observed:
9475 & 9930 are both off, July 3 at 2100 but 12105 on in French
(see also WORLD OF RADIO monitoring report)
12105, July 4 at 0110 is on with Brother Scare; 9475 is back on with SFAW, but no 5085 or 9930. 12105 BS is a few words ahead of 11825 WRMI
5085, July 4 at 0508 check, still off, but:
12105, July 4 at 0524, BS is still on here but signal down to poor-fair, apparently having to substitute #3 transmitter for #2
12105, July 4 at 1410, still BS, while 9475 and 9930 are both off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 570, July 3 at 1954 UT on caradio, counting the SAH that WNAX Yankton SD groundwave makes from more than twice the distance with KLIF Dallas TX: 196/minute = 3.27 Hz. My impression is that the SAH has sped up a bit. On April 27, 2013 I referred to this as a ``slow SAH``, but unfortunately not calculated. MW Offset list has them both, with precise rather than relative frequencies, and measured on different dates in 2011 and 2010y:
569.9970 USA KLIF (Dallas, TX) 20100829
570.0006 USA WNAX (Yankton, SD) [-570.003] 20111217
The figure in brackets means range, altho I don`t get it. The difference here makes 3.6 Hz. WNAX is one of our most distant groundwaves, 722 km/449 statute miles overland, city-to-city.
Re previous log of KLIF at night mentioning 93.3 FM --- this time I hear KLIF ID saying that 570 programming is also on HD2 of 96.3 FM; while 93.3 is the real KLIF-FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 590, July 4 at 0530 UT, ``ESPN Omaha`` but quite weak about equal to presumed XEPH DF. Wonder if KXSP is QRP? Inaudible at all 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1130, July 4 at 1250 past 1254 UT, open carrier/dead air no doubt from KLEY Wellington KS on groundwave; finally modulating at 1330 UT check. Its 250 watts make for sufficient reception in Enid, 107 km = 66 miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1250, July 4 at 1256 UT, Spanish skywave still in from ex-WREN Topeka, i.e. ``La Equis 12-50, La Súper-Estación``, i.e. KYYS Kansas City KS, 25 kW day power. Hi local noise level on SW bands encourages me to MW DX more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1340, July 4 at 1235 UT, two // sportstalk stations echoing about two words, or one second apart. One of them no doubt our closest KGHM Midwest City OK, and the other KGGS Garden City KS, one of the newest AM stations in the nation. They also make a SAH of 64/minute = 1.07 Hz. Standard remark about co-channel stations failing to coördinate. Skywave is still funxioning a sesquihiour after Enid sunrise at 1118 UT, now on the downside after earliest 1113 UT a month ago (while sunset is now at its latest, 0153 UT): both still in with SAH at 1246 UT but during local ad break so not echoing: ad mentioning Dodge City, Garden City, Liberal. I can mostly null KGHM to get KGGS. 1247 UT they rejoin Fox Sports Radio starting with Fox Sports One (TV) promo. NRC AM Log shows KGGS day power is only 880 watts, but night power 1000; why? Too efficient antenna? Surely it`s not short-spaced to other 1340 graveyarders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1440, July 4 at 1236, 1244 and 1257 UT chex, open carrier/dead air from NNW/SSE, doubtless 50 kW KTNO University Park TX (The Metroplex), supposed to be Spanish religion. Not the first time heard doing this, failing to save how many souls as a result?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1490, July 4 at 1237 UT, PSA about watching out for underwater rocks in Missouri lakes, rivers and streams. While visitors from the numerous surrounding states should also be warned about them, strongly suspect this is from a dentro-Missouri station, of which there are three, in Rolla, Sedalia, and the closest in the SW corner, KDMO Carthage, a Joplin suburb; when will they update the name to Tunis? Earlier I was getting 1310 Joplin, and now 1510 off-frequency het from Independence is still audible too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1728 UT July 4, with patriotic best wishes
