Glenn Hauser logs December 28-29-30 , 2014

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Dec 30 at 1448 UT, Caribbean Beacon is AWOL again. BTW, note spelling, NOT ``Carribean`` as often shows up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 17840, Dec 29 at 2115, R. Australia, in English, in fact the OSOB at this hour! But only fair signal at best. No longer using 17860 at all, nor 21740, which last B-season was remarkably good. 17840 like 21740 at 21-01 UT is on the 70-degree beam from Shepparton, most favorable for us in deep North America. At 23-01 we can still try // 19000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COLOMBIA. 5910, Dec 30 at 0631, romantic music, automated timecheck for 1:31, fair signal; 0633 next break with ID ONLY as ``La Voz de tu Conciencia``, not Alcaraván Radio. Perhaps this applies only to the daypart I usually monitor. I still see some other logs of Alcaraván Radio, but I believe only those which put the name in quotation marx. And whatever became of another ex-ID here, Marfil Estéreo? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA [non]. PK-AXC is the registration/wing number/callsign of the particular aircraft funxioning as Air Asia Flight QZ 8501, crashed into the sea, as a little Google research shows. So please refer to the unique aircraft, not the flight number when referring to this disaster!
It you must refer to it by flight number, you must also include the date which was Dec 28. Otherwise there was another flight 8501 on Dec 29 which made the journey successfully, its callsign being PK-AXU, and surely many more to come by two or three other craft, etc., etc. See http://www.flightradar24.com/flight/qz8501
Will anyone pay attention to me this time? Of course not
** MEXICO. 630, Dec 30 at 1306, weather in Spanish from ``Radar 63`` including SR/SS times, then traffic, starting with the highway Monterrey-Laredo, so certainly XEFB Monterrey NL. Only poor signal, but strangely, hardly any QRM from US 630s; where are St Louis and Denver? Radar 63 is the name of the newscast on XEFB, not its total slogan. One can find it twice deep within the packed Facebook page at
``El noticiero radiofónico con más tradición del Norte de México`` on ``FB 630``. Or more directly at http://fb630.com/ which shows Radar 63 M-F at 6-8 am, 2-3 & 6-7 pm [12-14, 20-21, Tue-Sat 00-01 UT].
Besides news, seems main format is Deportes with FB now standing for Fútbol, and in three different versions: Mexican, American, even Premier League!
However, Facebook has a link for those who are Sick of Football:
`Mas Allá de las Pelotas` featuring a leggy woman at 3-4 pm weekdays, which however, is not on the current website schedule.
After 20 local on weekdays, `Los Bellos Tiempos` which could be about anything, but at 21-06 CST overnights [03-12 UT], `Sólo Éxitos, 70s, 80s, 90s`, surely meaning hit music instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 940-, Dec 29 at 0606, low audible heterodyne from slightly on the lo side, ID as ``XEQ Radio`` from México DF. Sometimes it`s off frequency, sometimes not, perhaps due to two separate transmitters alternating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [non]. 15550, Dec 29 at 1543, continuous tone jamming mixing with R. Dabanga and USB WJHR, so the Sudanese do not find CCI from WJHR alone to be sufficient jamming over there, in fact, probably inaudible. Dabanga is via VATICAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13993-SSB, Dec 29 at 2119, MARS net with very informal QSO about antennas, etc. One of them IDs only several times as ``Tango``; some interruptions by digital ute noises, including ``running water``; 2128 another says fonetikaly ``8DQ, out``. At 2129 finally a full fonetik ID from AAR8HM but who has ``no traffic``. Google- and UDXF yg searching on that call gets zero hits.
On Sept 2, 2014 at 0600, Allan Stern reported to UDXF on 13993 USB, a USAF MARS Transcon Net with several AF-calls; but the AAR call implies Army (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1753 monitoring: confirmed Sunday Dec 28 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, good. Also confirmed at 0401 UT Monday Dec 29 on Area 51 webcast, and at 0426 also audible via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB. Also confirmed Monday Dec 29 at 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI, 9395. Next:
Wed 0401 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Wed 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1415 on WRMI 9955
Wed 2200 on WBCQ 7490v
Wed 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
** U S A. 9955, Dec 28 at 2010, WRMI with African fill music instead of Brother Scare, an incomparable improvement in programming (BS is still on 9980 WWCR, 9370 WWRB and several other WRMI transmitters). 2019 to `Ode to Joy` variations on piano, 2021 talk about the Council of Europe in English, French, German, then rap version in English; 2035 the usual polka.
It`s beyond me why with 11 transmitters available, Jeff would want to keep any BS at all on what should be the shining flagship of Radio Miami International, the B-System of 9955 kHz! But this respite is surely just an anomaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, Monday Dec 29 at 0550, Global 24 relaying Vatican Radio in seemingly objective secular world news, about cruise ship afire in Adriatic, good signal; at 0554 into non-objective sacred review of Pope`s year 2014. So Global 24 is still relaying VR at 0545-0600 daily except Sundays, and also presumably Israel Radio at 0530-0545, contrary to schedule grid which claims NHK Radio Japan both at 0500-0530 and 0530-0600! These come via WRN.
9395, Monday Dec 29 before 1500 some music program from Global 24, presumably the listed `Lake Air`. At 1500 into `Sounds from the Global Village`, starting with something the DJ thinx is probably Turkish.
9395, Tuesday Dec 29 at 1540, it`s R. Prague, ID, `In Focus`. Indeed the G24 sked grid now shows Sweden & Prague in the 15-16 hour, only on Tuesdays. So presumably `Democracy Now` has really been airing at 13-14, unchecked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [and non]. 15770-15775-15780, Dec 30 at 1542, DRM noise also QRMing weaker 15770 WRMI BS, tsk2. Per Aoki it`s Vatican Radio, English at 1530-1558 due east, i.e. for S Asia, just one more example of SMG`s exalted coverage way off their supposed azimuths. Is Jeff White still an advocate for DRM (but never on WRMI)? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SUDAN [non]
UNIDENTIFIED. 960, Dec 29 at 0604 UT optional cutaway ID for ``SRN News``, during Fox-hole of dead air from local KGWA Enid, but it cuts back on at 0605 UT before any local ID from the SRN. For quite some time I have not been hearing echoing ABC News at this time which was previously traced to KGKL in San Angelo TX and KMA in Shenandoah IA, both of which are still listed with ABC in the 2014-2015 NRC AM Log.
Going strictly by that resource, the ubiquitous SRN has only three affiliates on 960: KKNT Phoenix AZ, 5000/5000 Watts U2 (night pattern supposedly all toward the southwest), format ``Inteigent Talk`` [sic, huh??]; KLTF Little Falls MN, 5000/38 watts U1, so likely one of those, rather than the third, faraway WCRU Dallas NC (Winston-Salem), 10000/500 watts U4 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9700-SSB, Dec 29 at 1503, 2-way in colloquial Spanish. Strange that no one else ever bothers to log and report these INTRUDERS into the SWBC bands; and some editors won`t publish my logs either --- since they are not SWBC! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
