Glenn Hauser logs January 21-22 , 2015

** BRAZIL. 9725.0, Jan 22 at 0644, fair signal with Brazuguese call-in, 0646 mentions R. Nove de Julho, São Paulo, but this isn`t 9820v. It`s the reactivated RB2 from Curitiba, Paraná, which has been back a few weeks but this is the first time I`ve ever heard it during my regular bandscans between 06 and 07 UT, so just went 24 hours? Quickly confirmed as such by finding much weaker //s on 11935, and 6040, the latter the last one just to come up per reports from Brasil. Previous logs put 9 MHz channel 15 Hz low, but compared to NZ on 11725, it seems closer than that. Format is now Catholic, as if yet another one of those were needed on ZY SW. Apparently many are inter-related if not simulcast.
All three of these RB2s missed being entered into the WRTH 2015. They last appeared in the WRTH 2010, the upper two as *inactive, all 7.5 kW then and with the same callsign ZYE725; normally each frequency gets a distinct, usually consecutive call number, as evidenced by numerous other multi-band stations. Strangely, 6040 and 9725 were named R. Clube B2, while 11935 was still R. Clube Paranaense (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammers, morning of Jan 22:
9200, Jan 22 at 1357, CNR1 jammer, very good with flutter; no time for a full bandscan, but next hour before 1500 I don`t find any up to 18 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 9585, Jan 22 at 1419, VIRI in Japanese mentioning ``IRIB``, fair signal holding its own against 9580 Australia; 1420 music IS to 1421*. It`s 60 degrees from Sirjan. Then tuned to 9580 but could not hear Ahwaz starting the 26-degree Russian hour under RA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN. 5910, Jan 22 at 1359, Shiokaze is still here and still in English on Thursday; after pause, 1400 YL restarting show with callsign JSR, Tokyo, Sea Breeze, piano music; fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 9400, Jan 22 at 1425, Denge Kurdistane, another nice concert from the PKK terrorists for Turkey via PRIDNESTROVYE: solo flutish to frenzied strumming, yelling in unison, 1430 solo singing; fair signal, much more than 9395 Global 24 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Quick check of regular sunrise-skip XEs, Jan 22 at 1340-1345 in case some are lost to the FM transition: definitely still 650 XETNT with 6:40 TC and ``agenda de hoy``; 730 XEHB with joint ID for 107.1 FM; presumed 870 XETAR with announcements in Spanish; and 710 XEDP, Spanish not off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. Altho the PSIP of 48.1, on RF 29 KTUZ, is still KUOK-CD, the full-screen ID on this Estrella TV outlet is KOCY 48.1 Oklahoma City. KOCY was the original analog call of the LPTV on RF 48, which is no longer needed, or is it still on the air anyway, DTV or not? I haven`t been able to trace it, but required some tropo enhancement.
This is all very confusing. FCC TV Query shows KUOK-CD is on RF 36 in OKC with 7.3 kW. It previously was the tail wagging the dog of the real KUOK in far-off Woodward, RF 35, now listed with only 8 kW. KOCY-LP is still listed on RF 48 thrice: licensed for 18.1 kW, CP for LD as 15 kW, and application for TX (analog) with 13.5 kW; IIRC from two or three different sites last I checked.
Anyhow, whatever it`s call-ed in OKC, Estrella TV is well worth watching at least as wallpaper: silly game/variety shows with lots of girls prancing around in bikinis or short-shorts & halters/bustiers; often with fat or very short guys for contrast. E.g. `Don Cheto` at 1600 UT Jan 22. I find it is frequently necessary to switch between Squeezed or not for proper proportions; why? When viewing curvy girls you certainly don`t want them slimmed.
BTW, KOCY was the original 1340 in OKC, once a hot rocker, long gone, Later applied to 1560 from 2003 to 2010y (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SWEDEN. 9875, Jan 22 at 1409, JBA carrier with heavy ACI from 9870 and 9880, so maybe it`s the Radio Revival, Sala test as publicized during this hour for today; true, nothing else scheduled on 9875, but inadvisable to be only 5 kHz away from India, China and China bigsigs. Before 1400 could not hear even a carrier on 9865 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1756 monitoring: confirmed Wed Jan 21 at 2200 on WBCQ 7489.9v; BBC via Thailand has just changed schedule on 7490 to daily at 22-23, Fridays only at 23-24, but at the earlier hour no significant QRM here; by 2230 I do detect a slight het from on-frequency 7490.0 BBC.
WOR 1756 also confirmed at 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395. Both sufficient, first checked on webcast. The G24 `cast is still at very low volume level, and also at 1545 UT Jan 22.
WORLD OF RADIO 1757 monitoring: confirmed first airing at 1330 UT Thursday Jan 22 on WRMI 9955, good with no jamming. Next:

Wed 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
** U S A. 9395, Thursday Jan 22 after 1500, Global 24 via WRMI is playing `Democracy Now`, mainly analyzing the State of the Union message by President Obama, including Ralph Nader`s negative evaluation around 1545, by when I am listening on the still barely modulated webstream. But the SOTU was a sesquiday ago on Tuesday night, yet someone refers to it being ``last night``, so this must be the Jan 21 edition of D.N. a day late. I think G24 was also running D.N. before 1400 as I tuned across, unknown whether really today`s ``live`` broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 1520, Jan 22 at 0653 UT, ``CBS Sports Radio, This is Sports Radio 15-20, The Ticket``, then into `After Hours with Amy` from the network. NO KOKC! Which is off the air at the moment, conceding its ``clear`` channel to the perpetual cheater from Rochester MN, KOLM, obviously on 10 kW non-direxional day power instead of 800 watts night to the north.
There is still a fast SAH like caused to KOKC, but the understation now from the N/S is playing Mexican music. There are four minor 1520 stations in east/central Mexico, the closest being XEYP, Imagen in El Limón, Tamaulipas, 500 watts, but it`s supposedly info format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 3975-AM, Jan 22 at 0655, Vatican Radio good with organ music, no QRhaM at all, soon into Latin ``oremus``; only // is 6070 which collides with CFRX. Anyhow, this Latin mass semihour is nice for some organ interludes. After timeshift to 0530 in A-15, VR plans to stay on 6070! but switch 3975 to 7250 as usual in the summers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1566, Jan 22 at 1335-1340 UT, I am straining to detect a trans-Pacific carrier, and there may be one at imagination level; following neighbor Richard Allen`s catch of HLAZ, South Korea, 48 hours earlier; it`s the 250 kW FEBC station on Jeju, presumably with a variety of antenna configurations since over the 24 hours it broadcasts in Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Russian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1817 UT January 22
