Glenn Hauser logs January 16-17-18 , 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 19000, Jan 17 at 0009, R. Australia with good signal, better than // 17840. We`ll sure miss this only 19 MHz broadcast after January with RA cutbacks; has been on at 23-01 UT. Show is interview with English authoress Laurie Penny, first about how well-informed young women are now tnx to Internet; at 0017 interviewer issues a language advisory before uncensoredly mentioning a chapter title, ``--ck-- up Girls and Lost Boys``. Seems book is ``Unspeakable Things, Sex, Lies and Revolution``, on this show, `The List`. Penny says she gets threats. Those who approve of salty language must resort to shortwave, as I fear domestic AM & FM stations are too timid to risk it. Portrait and audio:
Seems this is a live relay off ABC RN, scheduled in for 11 am Sunday local time when everyone ought to be worshipping; but it`s a repeat from last August (Glenn Hausere, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 17890, Jan 18 at 0009, Chinese poor with flutter. Aoki shows CNR1 as a non-jammer here at 0130-1100, 100 kW, 222 degrees from Beijing 572 site but latest HFCC runs it 0000-1100; and nothing in either at any other time on this frequency.
Hardly anything else now on 16m except Australia 17840, but another non // Chinese on 17490, quite similar signal, which is CRI Cantonese, 500 kW, 193 degrees from unspecified Beijing site.
12035, Jan 18 at 0038, Chinese good with heavy flutter and SAH rumble; Aoki has CRI Chinese, 500 kW, 200 degrees from Xi`an during this hour. Maybe the QRM was from Egypt, also scheduled here, but see 12080 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 17730, Jan 17 at 2200, RHC opening `Revista Nuestra América`, with frequency list 17730, 13740, 11760, 11840, 9535, 9710, 5040 in typical Soviet-style disorder, and they all check out! Plus English on 11880. Seems the 22-24 Spanish bihour used to be called something else. Their so-called program schedule at
only covers the summer morning hours of 11-15 UT.
15370, Jan 18 at 0015, RHC French is somewhat overmodulated and splattering 15360-15380 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12080.1, Jan 18 at 0039, open carrier/dead air, presumably R. Cairo, could be just warmup before 0045 Spanish, but more likely will continue to be non- or badly-modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420 fair-good // 9935 poor, ERT Open in Greek is on today at 2136 Jan 17 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 17540, Jan 17 at 2140, Rádio Japão with J-pop introduced in Brazuguese, VG signal, good for my nap. WHRI 2130 relay toward Brasil, but surely the best sig within North America now for NHK World. Who needs English? Off at 2200* after timesignal, no announcement from NHK or WHRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Jan 17 at 0023, pirate music, fair at 0035 when announcer is ``killing time with a shoutout to Portland, Maine`` and someone in Virginia on hfunderground, but I don`t have to look it up there as then comes an ID ``Radio Free What-eever``, into song (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.1-AM, Jan 17 at 0024, pirate music, could not copy ID completely, ``Radio --- --- --- [3 syllables], Free Radio from --- [2 syllables]``. 0026 polka, off at 0034 next check. The answer to this one is Radio Doctor Tim relay per a few logs at,20336.0.html
which agree it went off at 0027/0028.
However, later on 6940-USB including (what else?) topless SSTV image;topic=20346.0;attach=2990;image
** U K [non]. 15200, Jan 18 at 0018, good signal in English, soon clearly from BBCWS, re hotels in the DRC; 0030 news headlines and now fading down some. Brand new, unlisted in latest, HFCC, Aoki and EiBi. Propagationally, likely from Thailand or Singapore. Dan Sheedy, California was also hearing this 24 hours earlier until 0058* // another unlisted, 13700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1756 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday January 18 at 0231 on KVOH 9975, fair. Next:
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
Mon 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Mon 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Tue 1200 on WRMI 9955
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, Sat Jan 17 at 2207, WRMI playing jazz/blues music, having turned back on after all-day 15-22 UT break on original frequency, good signal, no jamming yet, and better than 9395 G24. What`s this? Program grid shows Sat 2200-2230 is `Impact Radio`; wonder what that`s about if not just another gospel huxter and this may be fill music. Impact Radio is one among many programs which have no explicatory entry on the WRMI website. Jeff White explains: ``I think there was a problem with the audio file today, but Impact Radio is from Galcom about their various mission projects.``
7455, UT Sun Jan 18 at 0028, WRMI atop RTTY, sounds like Vasily Strelnikov conversing with a YL about what a bad year it`s been for him, but at least he didn`t have to leave the country; says recorded just before New Year`s Eve, doesn`t know what will happen with this show. I think it must be the NY special `From Moscow with Love` whose several airings I have so far missed, but not scheduled now; instead Sun & Mon at 0015 on 7455 is `Viva Miami` but these weren`t Jeff & Thaïs. Furthermore, Vasily is cut off abruptly at 0029+ for classic WRUL/WRMI ID, and 0030 into Ukrainian Radio IS and ID (NOT calling itself any more Radio Ukraine International).
Meanwhile, 5850 WRMI has started R. Slovakia International relay in English as these two Slavic stations have to compete with each other into eastern North American prime time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Jan 18 at 0040, carrier with extreme FM distortion, unreadable, but then clears up to hear Yoruba, yet very poor with heavy fading. So was it previously QRM, or self-imposed as I first expected, it being WTWW-3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0529 UT January 18
** BRAZIL. 6135, Jan 17 at 0218 poor signal with music, no het, so Bolivia must be off already, and this is // 9630v, 11855, so no doubt it`s Rádio Aparecida (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965+, Jan 17 at 0223, R. Cairo, good signal but heavy flutter, ME music, no whine audible for a change
9905+, Jan 17 at 0223, R. Cairo, open carrier, or maybe JBM, the other Arabic service, equal signal to 9965+
9860.0, Jan 17 at 0224, R. Cairo, just barely modulated in presumed English, not off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9975, Sat Jan 17 at 1515, fair signal with apparent Korean talk, cleanly separable from bigsig 9980 WWCR since it`s unmodulated until 1519. Aoki shows:
``9975 Wind from Japan "il bon ue baram" 1500-1530 1234567 Korean 100 345 Palau Medorn PLW 0721N 13431E _JCI T8WH Angel5 b14 BAB`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9985, Sat Jan 17 at 1513, good signal in Korean, and NO ACI for a change from bigsig 9980 which is unmodulated, until 1519 resuming. This Korean is assertive, but not to the level attained by the DPRK. Aoki shows it`s Radio Free Asia, 250 kW, 321 degrees from TINIAN at 15-17. Somewhat stronger than 9975 from Palau on the other side. The FRG-7 ``normal`` bandwidth is a bit less than 5 kHz, such that there is no 5-kHz het audible tuning between 9980 and 9985 at their relative levels, but there is a trace of one between 9980 and weaker 9975 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 640, Jan 17 at 0241, best signal from E/W in full null of Okie SSE, rapid national Mexican news in Spanish referring to Iguala, CNDH, whales, with stingers; 0243 music bit, swishes, 0245 interview about violence toward women. No doubt it`s XEJUA in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, listed by IRCA as with Milenio TV audio simulcast, 5 kW daytimer. Cantú agrees on daytime, nombre as BM Radio, which is a major group in the state. So when do they sign off? WRTH shows power as 5 without a d, implying it is really full-time. During this, hardly any KFI to be heard underneath (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 660, Jan 17 at 0247, live Spanish coverage of a SBG, looping NE/SW, crowd roars, announcer has to compete with loud PA from the venue; 0247 mentions ``Dorados de Chihuahua`` which is enough for me to conclude it`s XEACB in Ciudad Delicias, 3/1 kW per IRCA, breaking from otherwise ROMantic music format; Cantú agrees on power but WRTH 2015 shows 5 kW fulltime.
However, somewhat stale Wikipedia entries indicate Dorados de Chihuahua were both a baseball and a basketball team, but both were going to move elsewhere out of state. However2, further searching to indicates this name is still active as BKB in Chih and I suppose even in Mexico, baloncesto is more likely than béisbol in January (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1550, Jan 17 at 0237, bouncy Mexican music from NE/SW, 0238 ``La Rancherita, 15-50 AM``, ad, then losing to something in English. IRCA Log shows it`s our closest, XENU in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, 5000/250 watts --- and WRTH 2015, Cantú both agree on all this! Quite a coincidence. But is it really on night power? Both ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6975-AM, Jan 17 at 0216, scan of pirate band finds poor signal with music, logged by many others on hfunderground as X-FM; also something weaker at 0217 on 6925-AM, which during previous hour at least was logged by several as Liquid Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WBCQ for WAZU
** OKLAHOMA. 530, various daytime chex Jan 16, `K530AM`, Vance AFB TIS is indeed off, no longer even a weak signal audible. Just as well, as the thing never met 1% of its potential (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1640, Jan 15-UT Jan 16, chex of KZLS Enid while in OKC, and on the way back to Enid finds heavy QRM and SAH, mostly from WTNI Biloxi MS, so KZLS is unable to get a usable signal into its primary (?) market at night. Still suspect WTNI is running 10 instead of 1 kW (as KZLS sometimes does when obvious from local range). It would help if the two would zero-beat; no chance of that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Next WORLD OF RADIO opportunities this weekend:
UT Sun 0231 on KVOH 9975
UT Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
UT Mon 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109v-CUSB
** U S A. Updating my previous remark, as of Jan 16, Keith Perron and Phil Workman confirm that PCJ Radio International programming has resumed on Global 24 via WRMI 9395. See
** U S A. 5109+v-CUSB, UT Sat Jan 17 at 0215, WBCQ, piratical show with foul language referring to the S.F.O.A., must be current, also mentioning now pending SCOTUS ruling on same-sex marriage, in exaggerated faux-announcer voice. 0221 decrying bureaucratic M-F`s, then mostly music. 0228 plug for 0229 YL voice with seemingly serious ecological report, but it`s a parody, calling for legislation of an anti-tornado act, mentioning Oklahoma, limiting speeds and locations; and more parodies. Still going at 0253 check.
Amended sked at
shows during this hour only, Sat 0200-0300 UT the program is `WAZU`, perhaps drawn from a pirate faux-call, and no further info about it linked. Does that mean AWWW now always ends at 0200? Maybe on this frequency; and 7490 now recommitted to BS from 0200. See 9330v below.
Yes, searching gets some `direct` WAZU logs in 2011, 2012, latest October 13, 2013 at 2040 on 13605.65 AM; otherwise on 6925, 6929, 6950, 6955.
BTW, there is a real (licensed) WAZU on 90.7 with 500 watts in Peoria IL; any relation and if not, won`t they object? If a pirate gets busted, shouldn`t it get additional penalty for using the call of a licensed outlet?
Same WBCQ 5110 sked has now added VORW, Wed & Fri 0400-0500, with linked info being a quotation of my recent DXLD/log report about it!
I had checked 9330 earlier for possible // from WBCQ, but none. However, a 31m bandscan at 0227 hit Allan Weiner`s voice saying ``U, S, A`, i.e. must have been end of sign-off as nothing further heard. Perhaps only this transmitter had carried AWWW past 0200 to variable conclusion. However, this was heard when I had 5-kHz stepped to 9325! Must have been way off-frequency, but no time to measure it, maybe somewhere between 9325 and 9330, closer to 9325 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505+, Jan 17 at 0213, WRNO is on with VG signal, Mawire preaching, only slight modulation distortion, but splattering out to 7480-7530, bothering e.g. Brother Scare who is back on much weaker 7490v WBCQ. Frequency remains obviously on hi side compared with BFO to competent 7 MHz signals, but not measured, somewhere in the 7505.2 to 7505.3 range (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11550, Jan 17 at 1509, no signal from WEWN, but R. Católica Mundial is inbooming on 12050. 11550 is supposed to last from 13 to 18 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9980, Jan 17 at 1513, open carrier/dead air except for some humbuzz from WWCR, allowing DX on 9975 and 9985 to be heard with no ACI! See KOREA NORTH [nons]. Until 1519, when ``WWCR resumes normal programming on 9980, transmitter 4``, and 1520 joining Brother Scare who is always in progress (regress). Sat/Sun program schedule has 9980 ``signed off`` at 12-15 UT, so a bit late coming back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 650, Jan 17 at 0246 UT, Herman Cain call-in show, easily recognizable voice, in null of WSM which is no problem for it now. Must be KGAB in Cheyenne WY. Yes, sked now at 02-05 UT per
which admits this fine station also propagates other anti-American wackos Limbaugh, Hannity and Beck.
COL is Orchard Valley implying WY is not a desert; licensed for 8500/500 watts, but doing very well if only on nite pattern and power --- no, it can`t be, as night pattern aims northwest! Official January sunset is 0000 UT (Feb: 0030 UT). And there is nothing about a PSSA in FCC Correspondence File; however they do have a PSRA of 24 to 330 watts depending on the month. Nothing heard now from XETNT Los Mochis, which is a more frequent occupant of WSM`s null from here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 920, Jan 17 at 0250 UT about a talent search during halftime at the Utah Jazz, ads, presumably KVEL Vernal UT again, which really gets out for its 1 kW at night allegedly aimed northeast, at 690 statute miles from Enid, further than Chicago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1832 UT January 17
