Glenn Hauser logs August 2-3 , 2014

** ALBANIA. 9845, UT Sunday August 3 at 0149, R. Tirana with some nice folk music resembling Greek style, YL with violin, harp accompaniment; 0150 introducing the final one, ``Song of the Violet``, 0154 starting sign-off (and takes UT Mondays off) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. The 11780 RNA spurs now seem to be 31 to 32 kHz apart, August 3 at 0154, as always with no specific carrier to pinpoint them, so approx.: 11656, 11687, 11718, 11749, 11811, 11842 (vs RHC 11840), 11873, 11904. About the same panoply at 0553 recheck.
5990, August 3 at 0200, RNA is off, and seems I have not heard it for several days now; while 6180 and 11780 plus spurs are on as usual. The last time I deliberately logged 5990 was UT July 25; has anyone since? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jamming Sunday August 3 presents the Sunday-evening serious music show before and after 13 UT, a major choral work, also with soloists, probably extolling the Communist regime:
16100, August 3 at 1247, CNR1 jamming, fair-good // 15195, 15250 equally good; none now in the 17s, 18s or 14s
13970, August 3 at 1250, CNR1 jamming, fair
13830, August 3 at 1250, CNR1 jamming, poor
13795, August 3 at 1250, CNR1 jamming, fair
13610, August 3 at 1251, CNR1 jamming, fair, ACI from stronger 13605 Martí carrier and Cuban jammers ramping up
11825, August 3 at 1253, CNR1 jamming audible under WRMI/BS
11785, August 3 at 1254, CNR1 jamming now in talk break amid music
11430, August 3 at 1255, CNR1 jamming, fair
10960, August 3 at 1255, CNR1 jamming, good
11785, 11805, 13795, 13830 et al., CNR1 jammers continue choral, August 3 at 1305
10960, August 3 at 1318, CHR1 jammer after hourtop hiatus, is open carrier/dead air, allowing weak signal under to audiblize, presumably really Sound of Hope, Taiwan; 1320:35, fades up audio rejoining choral
9810, August 3 at 1321, CNR1 jammer
9680, August 3 at 1322, CNR1 jammer, poor with CCI
9660, August 3 at 1322, CNR1 jammer, very poor
9155, August 3 at 1325, CNR1 jammer, just barely audible
7445, August 3 at 1327, CNR1 jammer, very poor
7385, August 3 at 1327, CNR1 jammer, very poor
7365, August 3 at 1327, CNR1 jammer, very poor
19010, August 3 at 1350, CNR1 jammer in opera, poor, i.e. the Sunday-only frequency of RFA Tibetan via Kuwait at 13-14 (and 11-12)
13970, August 3 at 1354, CNR1 jammer, another talk break, fair with unusual het
10960, August 3 at 1355, CNR1 jammer, talk dialog, fair
17515, August 3 at 1430, CNR1 jammer, very poor; it`s the VOA Tibetan via Thailand frequency at 14-15 on Sun/Tue/Thu/Sat, per Aoki
** CUBA. 9550, August 3 at 1323, RHC Spanish is very poor mixed with CRI Vietnamese, and at 1330 also barely audible on 9820 with CCI, both identifiable by // 15370; so these frequencies are still on, and after 1300, contrary to what Arnie Coro claims (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9315, August 3 at 0153, R. Cairo is open carrier/dead air instead of Spanish; 11710 is off already (or had not been on at all?); 12070 is nothing but motorboating roar, and no spurs! 13850, supposed to start at 0200, is missing at 0212 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY. 7320-7325-7330, August 3 at 0208, DRM noise on unlisted frequency. Must be totally blotting what is scheduled, Iran in Urdu at 0120-0220, 500 kW, 109 degrees from Kamalabad! I bet it`s R. Andernach, the encrypted German military service, and I am right, as Alan Roe, Teddington, England is monitoring at the same time:
``Germany. A bit of a non-log, but maybe of interest: 7325 kHz, 3 Aug at 0205 UT, I have a DRM signal varying from 9 to 17 dB. There is no audio being decoded, but the DRM text shows "Mmedia, German, Germany, audio conditional access --- Information, Radio Andernach".
At I find (via Google translate): "Radio Andernach offers a 24-hour full program for use: In Kosovo and Afghanistan, the soldiers can receive the channel with FM. In addition, Radio Andernach for the relatives at home is also available via web stream." Roger in Germany replied:
``Here is a screenshot from last year:
Even then: Listen to nothing, encrypted audio. Just something to 
look at`` But WTFK then? And more about R. Andernach is in the latest DXLD 14-31 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935, August 3 at 0147 Greek music from ERTOPen, modulation back in whack tonight, as good as on // 9420; also on // 15630 at 0214 August 3, fair signal and somewhat undermodulated. 9935 has a bit of splash from Mighty KBC via GERMANY 9925, with a really mighty wide signal this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 13695, August 3 at 0211, 1-kHz tone test, fair signal. And at 0212 I find an equal match on 15120. At 0213:05 both stop tone and soon start AIR IS in synch; 0215 music and pause, language opening announcement, 0217 song. HFCC confirms both are Bengaluru, 500 kW at 300 degrees in Kannada to CIRAF 39, which is from Turkey thru the entire Arabian peninsula; registered from 0200 to account for the open carriers. EiBI`s readme language list says ``Kannada: India-Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu (40 million)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNIDENTIFIED 11740
** IRAN [and non?]. 13785, August 3 at 1310, VIRI Arabic fair signal, and again with constant het/tone on hi side; since they are talking about Israel, it occurs to me that the present war with Gaza may lead Israel to jam some enemy broadcasts in Arabic? After all, they have no further use for their former 300 kW broadcast transmitters.
Even more susceptible should be: Saut Falestin "Voice of Islamic Palestinian Revolution" ARABIC 0320-0420 9610kam 11875sir, A14 sked per BC-DX. Are these jammed? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 15475, August 3 at 0214, music very poor with flutter, no doubt Kuwait on new 24-hour frequency, despite LRA36 – still active on 15476 around 18-21 weekdays? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1060, August 3 at 0223 UT Sunday, reel music with fiddle, as long as cheater KIJN Farwell TX is nulled; presumably part of eclectic music from XEEP México DF; comparing to 6185 XEPPM surprisingly finds them //, altho in evenings SW programming is supposed to be distinct and separate. 
The latest monthly program schedules at
are from May! But they show non-specific programming on both at this time, just part of a large lite blue blob on MW, a green blob on SW at 2120-2145 CDT Saturdays, so maybe the SW goes in and out of // music fill from MW, in between separate programming? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sunday August 3 at 0148, Eric on The Mighty KBC is mighty wide this week, via Nauen, GERMANY, QRMing 9935 Greece, as he is fulfilling a song dedication to Lou Johnson in America; also splash against weaker signal on 9915, which per Aoki is BBC Urdu via ARMENIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINGT DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6924-AM, rock music, poor; 0201 unreadable announcement, sounds like old-time narrator mixed with music; next check 0212 it`s off. We can almost always depend on an ID by someone else from one or more fora: 
This log identified it as Captain Morgan Shortwave:
As did a whole bunch more here:,17953.0.html
One of which says the 0201 announcement was an old clip of Paul Harvey (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 6115.2, Aug 3 at 0159, KCRC 1390 Enid with SBG audible here, external mix with WRNO bigsig on 7505.2 --- and yes, the offset matches on both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [and non]. 9535, August 3 at 0151, REE with usual VG signal, but marred by some lite humwhine, unlike on other frequencies such as 9620. Same situation at 0555 as they are just closing down, uncovering Algeria via France, which is announcing its full schedule in Arabic. Do they mention that the 05 hour on 9535 is colliding with Spain and has been for months? Ha! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5332-CW, August 3 at 0205, CQ DE KG0EG repeated a few times, then stopped. ARRL lookup shows this is: KITCHEN, PHILLIP L, KG0EG, Waterloo, IL 62298, Previous call sign: WD9IPM. One of the five discrete so-called ``60 meter`` ham frequencies available, i.e. 56.22 meters using the 298,792.458 km/sec conversion factor, speed of light in vacuum, 56.26m using the rounded 300 factor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9975, August 3 at 0143, KVOH is off when WORLD OF RADIO would have aired. KVOH is among few affiliates with the courtesy to notify us of such a problem:
``Hi, Glenn. Our operator is having a problem bringing up our 9975 tx tonight, and our tx engineer is out of town. If we can troubleshoot successfully, we may be on later, but it seems we will not be able to carry your program this week. Sorry`` (Ray Robinson, Operations Manager, KVOH - Voice of Hope / Voz de Esperanza, 0132 UT August 3)
And also tnx to Thomas Völkner for another advisory about WOR missing an HLR broadcast:
``Glenn, On a very short notice and due to technical reasons, Hamburger Lokalradio will only run a short set of programmes on Saturday, August 2nd. 0500-0800 UT - 7265 kHz, 0800-1000 - 6190 kHz. Hence, the Sat 1430 slot of World of Radio will not go out on August 2nd. Please note that everything will be back to normal from Wednesday, August 6th 2014. Allbest,`` (Thomas, 0158 UT Aug 2)
WORLD OF RADIO 1732 monitoring, next:
UT Monday 0259v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2100 on WRMI 15770 (? Not last week)
Tuesday 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0630 on HLR 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 1430 on HLR 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
** U S A. 12105, August 2 at 1740, WTWW-3 is on in English, but much weaker than neighbor 12160 WWCR-2 (note: Aoki says WWCR-1, incorrect, since that is on 15825); so I again conclude WTWW-3 is operating at considerably reduced power --- or its antenna configuration is much less favorable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12050, August 3 at 1314, WEWN is missing but still on 11550 in Spanish; and weakly on 15610 in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
** U S A. 770, Sunday August 3 at 1234 UT, very poor but steady signal with Larry King doing a commercial (all he ever does these days, including half-hour TV infomercials bearing his name), 1235 UT resuming `Perspective` from ABC News, so no doubt KKOB Albuquerque NM which has been running this news magazine Sunday mornings at 6-7 MT for many years (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1680, UT Sunday August 3 at 0603 UT, at occasional peaks, KGED sounds like a local talk show, guest named Rodríguez; not waiting for a 5-minute news on the hour from SRN; perhaps because as per sked
`VALLEY TALK LIVE WITH JEFF CROW` has only one hour at 11 pm PDT Saturdays (and another at 3-4 pm Sundays; repeat?); yet the rest of the schedule totally ignores when there is ``news`` on the hour (or not) as so many other stations do as well. City to city distance for this 1 kW is 1954 km = 1214 statute miles. True bearing of Fresno from here is about 277 degrees (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1120, August 3 at 0221 UT, with KMOX baseball nulled, sermon in English, probably KTXW Manor (Austin) TX as now formatted, but catching an ID has been elusive; faded out by 0227 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11740, August 3 at 0219, tone seems less than 1 kHz but off the air in a few seconds. Only thing scheduled here is AIR Pashto service, per Aoki via Aligarh, INDIA; per HFCC via Goa. Attempted and failed transmission? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
UNIDENTIFIED. 15660, August 3 at 1255, another try at the unlisted French broadcast as heard August 1 but today it`s too poor to tell if it`s there or just CRI English via East Turkistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1725 UT August 3
