Glenn Hauser logs December 31, 2014 January 1,1-2 ,2015

** CUBA. 5040, Jan 1 at 0522, RHC in English // 6000, 6060, 6100, 6165. 5040 is supposed to stay in Spanish until 0600, then English, per own schedule, but this isn`t the first time we hear English on it also before 0600. Seems Arnie`s new 90m outlet, 3365? didn`t make it to air in 2014y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [non]. See USA: WRMI
** KOREA SOUTH. 6348, Jan 1 at 1518, poor-fair signal in Korean talk, and // 6003 poor, i.e. Echo of Hope, clandestine to North Korea. No jamming audible but may still be there. Another weak signal on 6250, presumably yet another Echo of Hope at a time when N Korea is not listed to clash with Echo of Unification. I seldom bother to log these, but notable to hear them so late, more than a sesquihour after sunrise here. Several ChiCom frequencies also still in within 49mb.
6600, Jan 1 at 1518, more Korean with poor signal, which is Voice of the People, another clandestine from south to north. But nothing on // 6518 which we used to hear and is still in current Aoki, EiBi and WRTH 2015 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 620, Jan 1 at 1427 UT, only station audible is weakly in Spanish, re 2015 arriving in Chihuahua Capital, at La Norteñita, i.e. XEBU. This is half a sesquihour after our Enid sunrise of 1343 UT which will reach its latest of the year in another week, 1344 UT, per
I suppose KMKI Plano (Dallas) TX, the Disney station is still on, unsold, just not propagating at 1427 UT. Yes, teeny-bopper music on groundwave at 2003 UT check Jan 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6945.15-USB, approx., Jan 1 at 0519, I`m checking for NYE pirate activity, once WORLD OF RADIO 1754 is finished. Only this, good signal with blues, 0520 informal announcement mentions taking requests from HFU posts, thinx he`s good for another 7-15 minutes. Says 2015 will be a good one for pirate radio. 0525 ID as something - radio, chiding listeners to wake up, 0530 mentions Oklahoma. I never could copy an ID, but from 31 posts at,20158.0.html
it`s WDDR as in Drunken DJ Radio; and I see none from further west than Oklahoma (someone else) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 780, Jan 1 at 1425 UT, open carrier/dead air from KSPI Stillwater, 250 watt daytimer on groundwave, often the case for this mis-managed station. January SR/SS times are 1345-2330 UT. A PSRA of ONE WATT is on file for Sept thru Feb, ha ha. Carrier allows thru a little music, probably KCEG in Colorado (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 92.85-94.9 MHz, Dec 31 circa 1920 until at least 2022 UT recheck, on caradio near KLGB-LP 94.3 in Enid, the main channel is dead air, but that doesn`t prevent buzzy spurs from remaining audible above and below in this range wherever channels are more or less open. Its new dependent from same site, KVBN-LP 99.9 remains nominal and with no spurs audible from it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. Checking FCC FM Query listings for Enid, I see that the CP for an LP on 100.9 has been relabeled NEW rather than with the east-of-Mississippi callsign previously granted, and appearing for months, WRML! For Radio Media Limited. Yet it has ``no callsign history``! Nor is there anything in the correspondence files to account for this strange mistake, or correcting it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, January 1, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. Filler digital channels continue to jockey around on OKC TV market stations: Dec 31 at 2020 UT I notice that ZUUS (country music) is gone from 25.2 KOKH RF 24, replaced by GritTV; they had also just activated a 25.3 for Weather Nation.
At same time I see that KAUT RF 40 now has a 43.2 of This-TV which has been on one or two other stations before. I may as well survey all of them circa 1630-1730 UT January 1, conveying the exact PSIP IDs with caps and spaces and punxuation;
ARCBC = aspect ratio can be changed
ARCNBC = aspect ratio cannot be changed
RF 13, KETA:
13.1, is OETA-HD [primary PBS channel] ARCBC
13.2, is OKLA [more local shows reruns and PBS reruns] ARCNBC
13.4, is KIDS ARCNBC
[lately these have almost been break-up free with leaves off the trees, but still need to rely on cable for 1 and 2, while 3 and 4 are not on cable; fortunately, little I want to watch on them]
RF 15, KTBO:
14.1, is KTBO-D1 ARCNBC
14.2, is Church ARCNBC
14.3, is JUCE ARCNBC
14,4, is Enlace ARCNBC
14.5, is SOAC ARCNBC [and this one only with continuous super ID in lower right, white letters KTBO-TV / OKLAHOMA CITY, OK RF 23, KSBI:
52.1, is KSBI-HD [but now with 9 KWTV bug in LR. KWTV has just acquired KSBI and plans to use it as backup for CBS programming when preempted on 9.1, rather than putting it on 9.2. Other RF 23 subchannels have been turned off, for now?] ARCBC
Some recent press about this:
RF 24, KOKH:
25.1, is KOKH-HD [Fox] ARCBC
25.2, is GritTV [old movies] ARCBC
25.3, is Weather [Weather Nation] ARCBC [yes, on all three]
RF 27, KFOR:
4.2, is ANT-TV [Antenna TV, old movies/series] ARCNBC
KFOR also owns KAUT RF 40, q.v.
RF 29, KTUZ:
30.1, is KTUZ [Telemundo] ARCBC
RF 29, KUOK: [same RF transmitter as KTUZ, but trying to hide it]
36.1, is KUOK [Univisión] ARCBC
RF 33, KOCB:
34.1, is KOCB-HD [CW] ARCBC
34.2, is GetTV ARCNBC
RF 39, KWTV:
9.1, is News9 [CBS] ARCBC
9.2, is News9 N ARCBC
[constant reruns of previous newscasts; the final N stands for NOW. KWTV has just acquired KSBI RF 23, q.v. and plans to use it as backup for CBS programming when preempted on 9.1, rather than putting it on 9.2]
RF 40, KAUT:
43.1, is KAUT-DT [``Freedom 43``, substation to KFOR and carries some ``channel 4`` programming, news, weather, local morning show against NBC Today, etc. I guess it`s still MyTV but not all the time, lots of syndication played locally] ARCBC
43.2, is THIS-TV [also with Freedom 43 winged logo bug in LR], ARCNBC
RF 46, KOCM:
46.1, is KOCM-DT [Daystar, religion; this had not been strong enough to decode, but lately is partially decoding with lots of tiling; probably due to all the leaves between Norman and here having fallen] ARCNBC
RF 50, KOPX:
62.1, is ION ARCBC
62.2, is qubo ARCNBC
62.3, is IONLife ARCNBC
62.4, is Shop ARCNBC
62.5, is QVC ARCNBC
62.6, is HSN ARCNBC
[FCC TV query shows KOPX still does not have a CP for a lower channel]
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 9620 // 11940 // 12030, Dec 31 at 2252, I pause in WORLD OF RADIO preparation to hear the New Year arrival in Spain, which is about the best we can hope to get anymore from the UT +1 zone, and which in previous years has paid off. All three frequencies are fair-good. Playing some music in English, but god forbid they should axually broadcast in English any more: ``Radio-Active`;
2258 joining TVE live coverage for the big moment at Puerto del Sol: the hosts there acknowledge that they are now simulcast on RNE and REE. We are about to hear ``12 campanadas``; after a few 2-tone bells, starting precisely at 2300:00 UT, the twelve bongs mixed with cheers from big crowd. Fortunately the nominal 2300* closing on SW has been expanded on all three. 2304 resumes from R. Nacional, DJ chatter introducing some rock `n` roll, blues. Don`t know how much longer this remained on air. I was so busy with WOR 1754 that I missed BBC at 0000, Brasil at 0200, shux (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1754 monitoring: confirmed on first SW broadcast, UT Thursday January 1, 2015 at 0431 on WRMI, 9955, good signal. Overslept past 1400 but surely also at 1330 on 9955. Next:
Thursday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Friday 0001 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Friday 2130.5 on WRMI 7570 & 15770
Saturday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Saturday 1000 on WRMI 5850
Sunday 0231 on KVOH 9975
Sunday 2300 on WRMI 11580
Monday 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0401 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
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. 9955, Jan 1 at 0642, surprised to find WRMI in Spanish instead of Brother Scare, who is still showing on schedule dated Oct 26 as daily 0600-1100 UT. Turns out to be R. Francia Internacional relay, W&W interview about the arts in France, first with a film directora visiting from the Dominican Republic, then with Gustavo Dudamel, Venezuelan conductor who finds Paris hospitable (evidently from 2014 archive, review show). So less BS on 9955, or an anomaly? Meanwhile RFI in English is as usual on 9395 Global 24 during this hour. Maybe BS/TOM hours are being reduced on WRMI?
9955, Jan 1 at 1512, no signal from RMI, while 9395 Global 24 is fair with `Democracy Now`, again back on now instead of at 1300,
By 2015 UT Jan 1, we find the WRMI transmission grid has been updated as of January 1. Yes, BS hours have been reduced, but still plenty.
9955 is now supposed to be OFF THE AIR at 15-22 UT, but still with BS starting at 06 rather than RFI Spanish which we axually heard.
11825 BS instead of 24 hours is now only 10-22 UT.
7455 is no longer with BS after TruNews finishes at 07. But the D-system has been added for an hour at 00-01 before TruNews starts. Content for this D-block not yet shown, but should be a variety of RMI programming not necessarily // 9955.
The // 7730 duplication of 9955 programming at 01-03 which started just a few weeks ago is already gone.
Two transmitters are currently not used at all: #1 and #5. One other, #2 is sked for only one hour a day, 04-05 on 5985 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Jan 1 at 0523, seems Ted is on an `Unshackled` kick, having lost paid Brother Scare programming on WTWW-2; hokey religious drama with characteristic organ music. Another (?) episode noticed on 9930 at 1512 January 1, badmouthing Atheists. `Unshackled` may be a great handy filler easily available, but demonstrates a gross lack of imagination in programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 660, Jan 1 at 1428 UT, good Navajo talk surely from KTNN Window Rock AZ, tantamount to bordering NM; January SR-SS times for it are now 1430-0030 UT, so jumped the gun (arrow?) at least a bit.
770, KKOB Albuquerque is also in well; SR-SS being 1415-0015 UT.
880-CUSB, rounding out the big-3 NM non-NYC frequencies: KHAC January SR-SS times are like KTNN also 1430-0030 UT, but KHAC cheats all night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 710, Jan 1 at 1430 UT I`m getting two weak stations in Spanish, rather than KGNC or KCMO. One is surely the usual XEDP in Chihuahua, but the other one, gaining, has an AutoZone ad and ID as ESPN Deportes Radio.
[The letters ESPN are always pronounced in English to avoid unfortunate connotations in Spanish --- ESPN really needs a new brand in both languages, as it no longer means at all ``Entertainment and Sports Programming Network``, just 100% sports]
That fits neatly as the only ESPN-D affiliate on 710 in the NRC AM Log, KBMB, Black Canyon City (address in Phœnix) AZ, 22000/3900 watts U4. BCC is way north of PHX on I-17, almost halfway to Sedona. FCC has two separate facilities for it, a DEL[eted] one of 50/4.7 kW and another LIC[ensed] of 22/3.9 kW, each with different patterns day and night. The 50 kW one is inscribed thus:
The deleted daytime site was:
34° 05' 10.00" N Latitude
112° 07' 0.00" W Longitude
The deleted nighttime site was:
34° 05' 5.00" N Latitude
112° 09' 5.00" W Longitude
The licensed daytime site is:
34° 04' 48.00" N Latitude
112° 09' 15.00" W Longitude
The licensed nighttime site is:
34° 04' 50.00" N Latitude
112° 09' 13.00" W Longitude
January SR/SS times are: 1430-0045 UT. So it must have just switched to day-site, which is really where? No mapping is linked on the FCC Query. Anyhow, all of these are very close to BCC itself, not Phoenix. NRC Pattern Book shows day pattern is circular tangent toward the ESE, while night pattern is tighter to the SSW. It`s Los Angeles` 710 which merits protexion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1160, Jan 1 at 1420, someone in assertive Spanish roughly NE/SW, making fast SAH with nulled KSL from the NW. Hoping for a late Mexican possible, but more likely KCTO Cleveland (Kansas City) MO, ``La Raza`` per NRC AM Log, or even more likely KRDY San Antonio TX, which is ``Radio Luz`` and thus given to unwarranted religious assertiveness (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 2058 UT January 1
** CHINA. CNR1 jammers, early UT January 2:
12045, Jan 2 at 0124, CNR1 jammer, poor
13580, Jan 2 at 0126, CNR1 jammer, fair with flutter, not synch 12045
13920, Jan 2 at 0127, CNR1 jammer, good with flutter, and synch 12045
14920, Jan 2 at 0130, CNR1 jammer, very poor with flutter, // 13920
16100, Jan 2 at 0137, CNR1 jammer, very poor with flutter, // 13920
** CHINA. 15125, Jan 2 at 0131, English news, poor with flutter, time check for 32 past the hour, item about the Air Asia crash, mispronouncing Surabaya with the middle A long (I`ve also heard a US cable network anchor mix up the consonants, apparently never having heard before of the second largest city in Indonesia, 2.765 million). This station speaks with an American accent, so I dare to hope it is one of VOA`s non-canceled services, but NO! Aoki shows it`s just CRI, 215 degrees from Beijing site, of course. It is also inadvisable to give time chex like that to Asia where there are half-hour zones all the way from Myanmar to Iran (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 6000, Jan 2 at 0141, RHC English has fast SAH and some CCI, no doubt 500 kW from Turkey despite aiming 72 degrees from Emirler, leaving only 6165 for good RHC reception (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 5060, Jan 2 at 0115, very poor signal on AM with talk; not a mix of nearby stations on 5 MHz, nor an image from 5960 where there is nothing. 0118 some music, 0120 sounds Chinese talk. I am getting it on both the DX-398 and PL-880. No doubt it is the only broadcaster in the world on 5060 at this time and have heard before, PBS Xinjiang, 100 kW, 230 degrees from Urumqi per Aoki. Still there at 0153. That means the other three 60m frequencies should also be audible, and indeed they are, but only as JBA carriers: 4980 in Uighur; 4850 in Kazakh; 4500 in Mongolian. Of course, the Chinese service is first among ``equals``, tho 4980 has same parameters. 4850 is 100 kW ND, and 4500 is 50 kW ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9860.0, Jan 2 at 0122, R. Cairo Spanish is open carrier/dead air or perhaps just barely modulated; fair signal level, not off frequency this time
9965+, Jan 2 at 0123, R. Cairo, Arabic, fair with flutter, whine
12035, Jan 2 at 0124, R. Cairo, Spanish supposedly, open carrier/dead air on fair-good signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 700, Jan 2 at 0144, Spanish from SSW, discussing Premio Nobel de la Paz, probably year-in-review show, 0146 ID as ``Radio Red AM``, which is XEDKR, Guadalajara, Jalisco, 10000/150 watts, so still on day power? Lucking out that WLW is inaudible, must be in fade cycle as e.g. Chicagoans are not knocked out by aurora. Yes, by 0151, WLW is back with silly ballgame, tho still can be nulled for something Spanish making slow SAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, Jan 2 at 0104, I`m tuned in time to the JBA carrier here presumed to be R. Chaski. Last monitored 6 days ago cutting off at 0104:51.5*. So by now it should have slipped/precessed to approximately 0105:27. Instead the signal drops noticeably at approx. 0105:31 but does not go off completely. So it was mixing with the other 5980 transmission which continues, BBC via UAE.
Further tracking will now be facilitated by WRMI`s elimination of Brother Scare from 5985 where he had been for a couple months. But Cuban pulse jamming is on 5980 tonight, residual for the full-bore jamming of R. Martí after 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1754 monitoring: confirmed Thursday January 1 at 2201, and UT Friday January 2 at 0001 on Global 24 via WRMI, 9395. Next: Friday 2130.5 on WRMI 7570 & 15770; usw. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7455, WRMI: checking out the new `System-D` hour at 00-01 UT January 2: tune-in at 0028 to find `Moments in Bible Prophecy` ending; 0029 classic repurposed WRUL ID for WRMI; 0030 ``Ukrainian Radio`` (not IDing as R. Ukraine International) in English. The latter is presumably stripped 7 days a week at this new time and frequency, but does it replace 2330 UT on 11580, as still shown on the schedule still lacking the new 7455 block? ``MIBP`` is also on 11580 at 2315 Mon-Thu, so if the 7455 hour duplicates 11580, that could also mean WORLD OF RADIO UT Mondays at 0000. Altho much stronger here than 11580, trouble with 7455 is constant RTTY QRM. I remain astounded that after a year, neither WRMI nor the RTTY station are bothered by the collision. But then the same was happening even before that to WYFR on 7455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Hi, Glenn. Just a heads-up that KVOH is expanding hours effective today, adding 9975 kHz from 0000 to 0500 UT Tue-Sat (6-11 pm Central, Mon-Fri). This is still using one of our two 50 kW RCA transmitters while our newly acquired Harris 100 kW unit continues to be installed. The schedule on our website has been updated.
WORLD OF RADIO will continue to be aired at 0231 UT Sundays, and can be heard on our webstream at that time and also at 0731 UT Mondays.
(Ray Robinson
Operations Manager
KVOH - Voice of Hope / Voz de Esperanza
P. O. Box 102
Los Angeles, CA 90078, USA,
So the new programming on 9975 consists of, UT Tue-Sat:
0000-0100 TruNews with Rick Wiles [already on WRMI et al.]
0100-0500 International Missions Fellowship in English/Spanish
IMF is the same organization which has had a CP for its own SW station for many years, and keeps registering imaginary schedules with FCC, currently certain hours on 6065, 9300, 13570. Apparently they are still building it, but not waiting any longer to get on the air.
See and then
``In the USA we have purchased a property near Battle Mountain, NV where we are working to build a powerful Shortwave Station which will be beamed at Mexico and Asia. It can be heard also in North America. We plan to build more stations after this. We have also just built a radio control center and small studio in Corona, CA to send programs to these transmitters via satellite/internet. It is now in operation. You can hear KIMF by clicking on the IMF Missionary Radio link below``
Listen to IMF Missionary Radio
Listen to Radio MI, Honduras
Prompted by the above, I check 9975 Jan 2 at 0015, and confirm it`s on with TruNews. At 0109 I start to monitor IMF, seemingly a live intro to that ministry, OM in English being translated consecutively by YL into Spanish. Good signal but modulation is a bit rough especially when he is talking; nor sure if that is an input or output problem. Does mention his own SW station KIMF under construxion in Nevada, which will allegedly cover much of the same territory as KVOH, also West Asia (?) or did they mean East Asia? Goes on about their missionary work in India, Philippines, Central America. 9975 starts to fade down around 0115. At 0133 they are thanking John Tayloe [not a typo] of KVOH for inviting them on there. Another missionary couple join them, seemingly a bit mike-shy. At 0137 = 5:37 Pacific they welcome listeners who have joined them on WNQM Nashville [1300, the MW side of WWCR]. Imply there will be three more programs tonight on KVOH following the
first hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 14770, Jan 2 at 0128, English talk and music, as Voice of the Martyrs finishes, World Harvest Radio ID. Ranges from deep fades to fairly strong, a sign that this harmonic from extremely strong 7385 WHRI is produced in receiver rather than propagated, along the threshold of receiver harmonic image rejexion capability --- but I am getting it on both the DX-398 and the PL-880, ``better`` on the `398. 7385 is registered as 100 kW at 315 degrees right across mid-America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
