Glenn Hauser logs November 10-11-12-13-14 , 2014

** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815, Nov 11 at 0645, still distorted spurs from 11780+ RNA audible, tho my heightened local noise level overall tries to obscure them. Nov 12 at 0634, I can make out 11745 but not 11815 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 7395, Nov 12 at 1407, CRI Japanese // stronger 7410; at first suspect a spur, but nothing on 7425; 1410 ID as ``Kochirawa Pekin Hoso``. Also an open carrier circa 7393 to confuse things. 7395 is 500 kW, 73 degrees from Xi`an, while 7410 is 500 kW, 59 degrees from Jinhua site, both Japanese during this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11860, Nov 11 at 1410, RHC with crackle on this transmitter // OK 15370.
5040, Nov 12 at 0644, as soon as Arnie says ``58``, modulation stops on this RHC frequency and the other four of the Cuban Five on 6 MHz. I do not hang around waiting for revival.
11950, Nov 12 at 1413, RHC new frequency is still on past nominal 1400*, but off at 1437 check. 
6000, Nov 13 at 0704, this is the only RHC frequency still on the air, and it`s in Spanish after English until 0700; recheck 0709, it`s off, so just overrun? Arnie had said something about keeping 5040 on the air until 0800 in Spanish, but not tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN. 9595, Nov 13 at 1352, R. Nikkei I with usual Thursday English lesson based on current events, this Part 3, about Hong Kong protests. Spoken slowly but seems to be presented entirely in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 9395, Nov 12 at 1411, NHK World Radio Japan, poor-fair via WRMI Global 24, same time as NHK`s other relays in English, 11925 via Palau and 11695 via Uzbekistan, somewhat audible here but hardly sufficient. But this must have been temporary as the full G24 schedule effective Nov 15 shows NHK only at two other times per week: Wed 1100, Monday 1800. It`s a wide Google spreadsheet which won`t be searched, so hard to be sure one has found all the times for anything by eye. `Old Time Radio drama` is now scheduled for 14-15 Monday thru Thursday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 9395, Tuesday Nov 11 at 1355, KBS World Radio is audible in English via WRMI Global 24, very poor with ACI, but better than 15575 direct. Again at 1433 check Wednesday Nov 12. However, new G24 full sked effective Nov 15 no longer shows KBS at either time, but instead daily except Thursdays at 09-10 UT, yawn, plus Sundays at 1830-1900. `Old Time Radio drama` is now scheduled for 14-15 Monday thru Thursday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 810, Nov 13 at 0723, full ID but too much CCI; do make out La Mexicana, which officially is the name of only one 810, XESB in Santa Bárbara, Chihuahua. Also 25 kW on FM --- seems 25 kW is the power of all these new mandated FM duplicators so AM can be abolished (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1030, Nov 13 at 0714, plugging Aguascalientes, but there is no Ags on 1030, and this loops NE/SW vs CCI, then R. Fórmula ID, stuff about México DF, so no doubt national network show; then ``el sabor de México`` feature about tacos; 0718 a bit of Elvis(?) in English; then resuming talk show giving time check as 13 minutes to go, so presumably a playback from daytime at another hourpart. Subject: INFONAVIT which is the government agency ``Instituto del Fondo Nacional de la Vivienda para los Trabajadores`` (love those mouthful Mexican federal acronyms!). The only 1030 R. Fórmula in IRCA Mexican log is XEYC 1/1 kW in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, and the direxion fits (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, Nov 11 at 2117-2119 UT, from tune-in for two minutes, dead air from WKY, one of few signals which manage to penetrate the Faraday cage of Chili`s on the G8. 
Also at 0719 UT Nov 13, WKY is running an ad in English (which they easily mix in with Spanish) for which is some Christian gimmick, then David Stanley Dodge in Spanish. This gives me an excuse to link to a display ad for this station in a Spanish-language newspaper:
Note the cute nicknames for each DJ, Road-Runner and The Doll. Did you know Oklahoma is/has a Race? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1520, Nov 11 at 0651 UT, ad with echo from another Red Eye Radio network station [see USA: WHOW], KOKC ID for ``1520 & 103.1, KOKC``, so still on that FM translator altho previous ID did not mention it but instead on an HD channel of sibling KOMA 92.5; takes turns giving the substations? Also a LAH, which may be from another cheat, KOLM Minnesota, as previously logged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** OKLAHOMA. The 4.8 earthquake SW of Wichita KS was certainly felt here, as the WOR studio shook for about 5 seconds, but no known damage, Nov 12 at 2140:35 UT. USGS timing for it was 2140:00, so is 35 seconds to be expected for the seismic wave to reach here? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1746 monitoring: confirmed Monday Nov 10 at 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395; confirmed by Rumen Pankov, Bulgaria, UT Wednesday Nov 12 after 0400 on Global 24, 9395. Confirmed by me, Wednesday Nov 12 at 1415 on WRMI 9955 (after waltz music fill, or is that the Famagusta theme?). Also confirmed Wednesday Nov 12 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490v, and at 2201 on WRMI Global 24 9395. Also on WRMI 9955, UT Thursday 0430 & 1330 (1747 was not ready until later).

** U S A. 9395, UT Wed Nov 12 at 0200, Global 24 via WRMI is carrying `Peace Talks Radio`. This was really the source for the publicized ``Back to Vietnam`` special. New sked from Nov 15 shows `PTR`: UT Mon 0200-0300, and also Sun 1600—1730. For this log I was pleased to find 9395 audible altho not a bigsig on the G8 with whip only, as I consumed my free veteran`s steak at Applebees, where I had lucked into the best table in the house, right next to windows at the NE corner; while in the middle of Chilis earlier, I could hardly get local FM stations, let alone SW. 
9395, Thu Nov 13 at 1348, it`s Amy Goodman discussing Iraq, so must be `Democracy Now` at another unscheduled time, but only today? New schedule shows merely `World Radio Network` during this hour on Thursdays. See full schedule:
** U S A. 7455, 5850, 5015, Nov 13 at 0659, TruNews via WRMI is instead running a long string of differently-worded IDs past 0705, all as ``Radio Paradise``, with a variety of sound effects; see [or not, goes nowhere: without the my, Radio Paradise seems an unrelated music web staton.] This is from Flowing Streams Church in Vero Beach FL. By 0707 finally into talk programming. Must have taken Radio Paradise name from the St. Kitts 820 MW station they have been attempting to take over from TBN. 7455 with the usual RTTY QRM. The TruNews blox contain programming by different names and this must be one of them. I`ve never found a program schedule at nor do I find anything about a Radio Paradise on SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1747, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 5830, Nov 13 at 0705, WTWW-1 is off the air along with WTWW-2 still missing from 5085, and no WTWW-3 on 12105 either. Next check 1338, only 5830 is back on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 660, Nov 11 at 0211 UT, Navajo chanting; 0215 UT C&W music in English, typical rotation mix of KTNN Window Rock AZ, dominant but with a SAH, probably KSKY Metroplex. Currently seems stuck on ND day pattern at night, rather than protecting WFAN. Has also been reported by Tim Tromp, MI before sunrise, but with IBOC QRM de WSCR 670 Chicago, which can also be a problem here unless nulled. KTNN chanting heard again on 660 at 0715 UT Nov 12, 0725 UT Nov 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1747, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also 880
** U S A. 690, Nov 12 at 0716 UT, open carrier here, DF fits for KGGF Coffeyville KS, which ``signs off`` circa midnight = 0600 UT after patriotic music and taps. Hadn`t noticed the OC lately. Keeping the transmitter warmed up? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 880, Nov 13 at 0720 UT, sermon in English east/west, mostly on USB but weakly audible on LSB of the DX-398, i.e. KHAC Tse Bonito NM, another Navajo station failing to protect New York, in this case running 10 kW ND day power; KRVN north/south nullable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1747, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1520, Nov 11 at 0651 UT during `Red Eye Radio` from KOKC OKC, commercial for has an echo, meaning another RER affiliate, likely another day-pattern cheater. I don`t have to research affiliates, since 0653 UT along comes clear ID for ``WHOW, The Big 15-20`` accompanied by country music, then joint ID with 92.3 FM; 0654 UT back to // KOKC for RER, making a rippling SAH and with slight echo. By next ad at 0657 UT, they are about two words out of synch, why change? 
WHOW is a 5 kW daytimer in Clinton IL, per NRC AM Log 2014, and the translator on 92.3 is W222BG. Two nights ago at this same time, the cheater was KOLM Rochester MN, not with Red Eye. Rather than the usual DX-398, I was getting this on the FRG-7 with shortwave random wire antenna input at the bottom of its range, favoring east-west, not KOKC; which is apparently still authorized for STA of only 12.5 kW at night due to its own antenna problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 3975, Nov 12 at 0645, VR with Latin Mass is audible but VP // 6070 which clashes with CFRX. Last winter, 3975 would come in pretty well; maybe in a few weeks? 3975 is 100 kW at 330 degrees to W Europe for the 0630 transmission, so should carry on well to here. HFCC B14 shows only these two frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5097.4, Nov 12 at 0641, fair signal with open carrier, could be ute; WTWW-2 is still crashed, no splash QRM from 5085 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 2337 UT November 13

** ARGENTINA [and non]. 11711.0, Nov 14 at 0308, RAE is in English instead of French; het from weaker station on 11710 can be eliminated on the PL-880 by tuning USB (but not vice-versa with LSB). RAE has apparently swapped times for English and French on UT Tue-Sat so English is at 0300-0400. Mark Coady first noted this Nov 7, a week ago, assuming it was a mixup. News headlines with sounders between items, 0312 about the Paraguayan president trying to exceed his term limit. Frequency seems very close to 11711.0 now instead of 11710.6 or 11710.7. Meanwhile, what`s the het? Only thing scheduled at 0300 on 11710 is CRI Russian, due west from Urumqi, EAST TURKISTAN. When English was at 02-03, it was hetless, tsk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11600, Nov 14 at 0258, checking whether Station YHWH is here, but only some weak Chinese. Aoki says 100-watt Sound of Hope is relaying Radio Free Asia during long hours on 11600; therefore, I am hearing CNR1 jamming of at least 100,000 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CONGO DR. 5066.25 approx., Nov 14 at 0318, JBA carrier, presumed R. CANDIP following tip from Tim Rahto Nov 10 when reception peak in Iowa was at this hour. Does it sign on now around 0300, well before local sunrise? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** CUBA. 9710, Nov 14 at 0304, RHC Spanish, good level but undermodulated and slightly distorted. Stand by for collision with Iran, something Arnie did not realize or work out with VIRI. Yes, at 0327 check, VIRI is on with Qur`an at about equal level; see IRAN.
9535, Nov 14 at 0306, RHC Spanish, fair signal, hum and undermodulated about like 9710. Much better on 6060 & 5040.
Propagation is such that RHC (and WRMI) are barely audible on 11 MHz: 11670, Nov 14 at 0308, RHC Spanish poor with flutter
13740, Nov 14 at 0315, RHC Spanish detectable but very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ECUADOR. 6050, Nov 14 at 0253 sounds like mbira, but this must be an Andean instrument, from HCJB; 0254 song in Spanish. Good signal past 0330 when I didn`t think to check if they`re still doing Spotlight in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. Monitoring later in the evening than usual, gets slightly different results from R. Cairo:
9860, Nov 14 at 0300, open carrier/dead air, or just barely modulated? 
Poor-fair signal during what is now the alleged English to NAm at 0200-0330
9965, Nov 14 at 0300, Arabic with whine, good signal
9905, Nov 14 at 0302, good signal, just barely modulated, enough to tell that this Arabic is not // that on 9965. That`s because 9965 is the external service via Abu Zabaal, and per Aoki 9905 is ``'El-Bernameg Al-Aam`` the home service General Program relay via Abis.
{Meanwhile, I feel a brief Earth tremor at 0302:55, which did not register with USGS since this one:} 
``2.8 16km ESE of Medford, Oklahoma 2014-11-14 02:46:58 UTC+ 5.0 km`` 
** ETHIOPIA. 5950, Nov 14 at 0251, open carrier, fair signal. I`m looking for Station YHWH, heard by Ron Howard two nights ago at 0254-0335* on this, a new frequency, a live broadcast by ``Josiah`` rather than recorded. He didn`t mention any QRM out in California, but here all I am hearing is the usual V. of Tigray Revolution; flute? IS is going by 0257, 0301 announcement, poor signal quite weaker than the other Ethiopian on 6110. At 0321 some HoA music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ETHIOPIA. 6110, Nov 14 at 0254, music box IS from R. Fana, fair signal, 0259 announcement; 0324 check in talk, it`s much weaker as the sun is upcoming there. Nice that this and 5950 are easy now in North America with lack of ACI or CCI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 9710, Nov 14 at 0327, new frequency for IRIB/VIRI North American service in English (``Voice of Justice``, take that), is colliding with CUBA, q.v., since Arnie has not seen fit to avoid it; Cuba after all was here first in previous season(s). About equal level; Iran starts at 0323 or so, with opening exercises, 0327 Qur`an, so having established this, I go to the // 7325, which is in the clear, good with flutter, but running about 2 seconds behind 9710, i.e. Sirjan while 7325 is Kamalabad. After Qur`an, English stuff about Allah, 0330 chimes, ID, theme, news and one could have listened until 0420 to one of the handful of remaining North American SW services in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) see also PALESTINE [non]
** MEXICO [and non]. 6185-, Nov 14 at 0339, XEPPM good signal with jazz, 0342 into swing, big band; no QRM and sufficient modulation. More jazz to be had on 9395 Global 24, and 11711 Argentina is also jazzy at 0341 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PALESTINE [non]. 9895, Nov 14 at 0303, fair signal with Qur`an. Little do I realize until uplooked in Aoki that this is the "Al-Quds TV" relay of VIRI, 500 kW, 289 degrees from Zahedan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RWANDA. 6055.0, Nov 14 at 0323, RRR talk in presumed Kinyarwanda, good signal, but somewhat distorted, overmodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH AFRICA. 6155, Nov 14 at 0324, English with heavy accent about Ukraine and Russia; 0326 dead air for a minute or so after mentioning Pres. Obama. Then `Africa Rise & Shine` program name so it`s Channel Africa. Fair signal with flutter, much weaker than 6165 Cuba but far enough away from it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5985, Nov 14 at 0321, Brother Scare via WRMI during QRM from BBC Persian, has nincompoop on about Planet X, imminent collision with Earth. I`ve kept hearing this same nonsense for the past two or three days as I tune across the still numerous BS frequencies. Also repeated over and over, BS` latest plea for dough, and frequency reports by phone, as several contracts are running out at yearend and he has to figure out what`s worth keeping. 
He has already dropped WTWW, which despite its blasting signal, became more and more unreliable under the usurped management of Ted Randall. Finally, it seems the formerly BS-dedicated #2 transmitter had to be put on the #1 frequencies when that transmitter failed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 6080, Nov 14 at 0323, open carrier with the usual lite pulse jamming (Cuban stray or spur?), still so at 0338, when I can also detect a weaker second carrier causing a SAH. Supposed to be modulating at 03-04 on 6080 is VOA English via VATICAN! The other one is perhaps Brasil. I suppose VOA 6080 came to life at 0400 with site switch to São Tomé (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1747 monitoring: confirmed at 0030 UT Friday November 14 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395. Followed by jazz show, but at 0259 check I hear the 1812 Overture playing.
What will happen on WWRB? Nov 14 at 0257 I find BS on both 3185 and 5050. Same at 0425. But the webcast has that other preacher. I recheck SW at 0430 and no WOR on either; back to the webcast: at 0432, WOR 1747 playback starts and stops; fourth try at 0434 keeps playing, the intro way too loud and distorted, finally turned down and listenable by 0435. 
But is it on one of the SW frequencies by now? At 0439 check, both those are still BSing. And of course, WOR on webcast-only gets chopped off at 0500 since it restarted late: ID and address for WWRB to introduce `Bible on Shortwave` [NON!]. O, well. Next WOR time: Friday 2130 on WRMI 7570 & 15770 as they break away from BS for an hour; etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 5985, Nov 14 at 0321, Brother Scare via WRMI has CCI almost as strong in Persian. Aoki shows it`s BBCWS due east from Woofferton UK at 0230-0330. WRMI in the clear again at 0337 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]
** VATICAN [and non]. 9660, Nov 14 at 0305, VR with heavily-accented African English talk about educating Christians and Moslems; good signal --- so who needs a dedicated North American service any more --- we poor cousins of the African audience can make do with this. O my! // 11625 is even better, at very good level, running about one second behind 9660. This 0300-0330 broadcast on 9660 is 250 kW, 150 degrees, so off the back from SMG; while 11625 is 250 kW, 305 degrees from MADAGASCAR during this hour, but before and after it, SMG (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: VOA 6080
