Glenn Hauser logs November 20-21 , 2014

** BRAZIL. 11745, Nov 20 at 2319, weak distorted spur is audible from very strong 11780.1 RNA, but not the match on 11815, with too much splash from 11825 BS WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11790, Nov 20 at 2320, CRI English with surprisingly strong, clear and steady signal as if for North America, discussing Nigeria, and a few words ahead of // 5990 CUBA. Whence? HFCC says it`s from way over in Xi`an, China, 500 kW aimed 190 degrees, target CIRAF 49E which means Thailand, Laos, Vietnam & Cambodia. So could be long or short path along grayline; and there is a very slight echo audible on 11790 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 13605, Nov 20 at 1417, pulse jamming vs nothing since R. Martí has gone back to 13820 for B-14 ---- or rather, jamming vs an open carrier from something. Nothing else scheduled now: carrier could be from one of the jammers, or even from a ChiCom jammer against India`s Chinese service until an hour earlier.
13820, Nov 20 at 1417, R. Martí very good over jamming during `En Voz Propia` program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT [and non]. 9965, Nov 20 at 2315, R. Cairo news theme with fair modulation, so I will listen to the news in English: No, I won`t, because she is muffled and barely comprehensible now and then. Current Global 24 schedule shows Cairo relay on 9395 only at 1300-1430 on Sundays, which I`ve yet to catch on air or webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, Nov 20 at 2307, ERTOpen is on with Greek talk, good signal, while // 9935 has again gone bonkers with big whine (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 9400, Nov 20 at 1400, Kurdish news, 1412 ululating music past 1443, so Denge Kurdistane is still running past 1400 when the collision with FEBC Philippines is over, contrary to a schedule from Ivo Ivanov showing it finishing at 1200. Much stronger than 9395 Global 24 here, and even more so in Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1520, Nov 21 at 0050 UT on caradio, KOKC is absent! Nothing else except enough weak carriers to audiblize the 1521 het from Sa`udi Arabia. Tsk2, a golden opportunity for WHOW or KOLM, but neither audibly cheating tonight. 
Would have been nice to hear WWKB Buffalo NY, which is 50/50 kW U3, but with deep null to the west day and night. (Only as a DX catch since it`s just another ESPN nonentity.) WWKB has been erratically off due to the snowstorm, allowing Rob Ross in London, Ontario at one point to hear nothing but KOKC on 1520 --- but KOKC is supposed to be westward only at night, altho granted an STA of 12.5 kW due to antenna problems, so maybe also non-direxional? If WWKB has been damaged, or due to emergency, it might also be non-direxional temporarily.
At 0054 UT KOKC pops back on, amid anti-American diatribe by Michael Savage who`s on until 0100 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15140, Nov 20 at 2325, poor signal with ME music, so R. Sultanate of Oman has kept 15140 on past 2200 today instead of one of the four registered frequencies during this hour, 15355, 11650, 11630 or 9740 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1747 monitoring: confirmed final play this week, Thursday November 20 after 1330 on WRMI 9955.
WORLD OF RADIO 1748 monitoring: confirmed first airing Thursday November 20 at 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9955; also second airing at 0030 UT Friday November 21. Fair signal on first airing had improved to good after 2300 for `Democracy Now!`
BTW, I also confirmed that WOR is still *not* airing Thursdays at 2200 on WBCQ 7490v, since it was replaced without notice a few months ago, as I reported immediately; despite still being listed on WBCQ online schedule. On 7490, only Wednesdays at 2200 (when it`s 6 or 7 days old). Next 1748 airings:
Friday 0430v on WWRB 3185 (MAYBE: last week partial webcast only)
Friday 2130 on WRMI 7570 & 15770
Saturday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Saturday 1000 on Global 24 9395 (maybe, or WRMI 5850, maybe)
UT Sunday 0231 on KVOH 9975
Sunday 1000 on WRMI 5850 (please confirm)
Sunday 2300 on WRMI 11580
UT Monday 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955
UT Wednesday 0401 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395 (subject to change)
Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 1415 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 2200 on WBCQ 7490v
Wednesday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
** U S A. 9395, Nov 20 at 1359, JBA signal from Global 24 via WRMI; all I can make out is a request for financial support by those wanting to keep hearing KBS World Radio. Not sure if that was before or after 1400 today. Well, if KBS can afford to buy a daily hour of airtime on WHRI for Spanish, so can they for English here or elsewhere, if they cared about us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 9462.1 & 9487.9, Nov 20 at 1420, weak carriers certainly spurs from the bigsig on 9475 WTWW, as they are equally separated below and above it by 12.9 kHz. I was checking 9465 where Global 24 will be testing via Bulgaria all 24 hours of UT Nov 22 --- not for us, of course, but the WTWW spur won`t help. As for collisions on 9465 itself, Ivo Ivanov says of the four broadcasts registered, only one exists, 1330-1400 FEBC Philippines (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330-CUSB, Nov 20 at 2307, WBCQ is on this frequency for an hour at least, during `Money Talks`, very good signal level, but hum and overmodulation distortion; better on weaker synchronized // 7490v-AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0335 UT November 21
