Glenn Hauser logs January 28-29 , 2015

** ALBANIA. 7465, Jan 28 at 0048, R. Tirana, Albanian song, poor, but no longer any QRM from WRMI 7455, as the 00-01 programming has been moved to 11580, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. Sorry, I continue to belatedly spot some errors, which must be corrected [minor obvious spelling ones of words I just fix in DXLD compilation if in time, or maybe in archive]: 13630, not 13600 as first written; fixed:
11945 is one of many frequencies RA will be dumping as of February 1, but has been quite reliable here during this hour. Tonight [Jan 23] also // stronger 13630 and weaker 15240. RA may be phasing out some of these early, as not always audible, or is it just propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 9580, also // much weaker 9475, 6150, 5955, 5950, very pleased to hear some intelligent talk rather than `Triple J Unearthed` pop music on RA, Wed Jan 28 at 1323. JJJ had been starting at 1300 weekdays. This turns out to be `Conversations with Richard Fidler` (long I), as IDed at 1331, guest discussion also before an audience about ``faking it on stage``. 
Said it was his first show of 2015y, so just back from summer break. (Jan seems to be the major holiday month DU, instead of Feb (=Aug in northern hem)). 1400 outro ID as on ABCRN, no news, and now switch to Triple J. Online sked now shows Fidler M-F at 13-14, and also Tue-Fri at 00-01 UT when we might hear it on 19000 for a few more days, next week on 17840 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815, Jan 28 at 0112, crackling spurs from 11780.1v RNA/RNB are audible. Also Jan 28 at 0632 the crackles are audible but very poorly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11935, Jan 28 at 0113, `RB2 fair with singing and // much weaker 6040, but nothing on 9725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9570, Jan 28 at 1323 check, CRI English relay is still here, not moved to 13 MHz; and presumably the preceding hour in Cantonese too.
15700, Jan 28 at 1503 check, CRI English via CUBA remains here still with some hum, distortion and splattering plus/minus 15 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed Jan 28 at 1414 just before WORLD OF RADIO on WRMI, `European News Network` announces that from this coming Saturday [Jan 31] the weekly 1845 broadcast will be on 5905, ex-5925. Secret site for that is BULGARIA per Ivo Ivanov, and IIRC, they were going to make such a move several weeks ago but it did not ensue. Reason: collision with Iran`s Albanian service. Presumably HFCC`s list on 5905 for Voice of Russia DRM in German is totally imaginary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 7425, Jan 28 at 0053, CRI English, then translating Chinese, poor-fair, site? Kashgar, 100 kW at 174 degrees, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. Re: ``KOREA NORTH. 11645, Jan 26 at 1505, humwhine on poor carrier, no other modulation audible. Aoki shows VOK in Arabic, so probably that, altho HFCC also has a wooden(?) registration for Pakistan in Urdu, quite capable of similar noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``
Open carrier/dead air of ERTOpen on 11645 from 1200 till 1520. Change to 9935 at 1700 UT. Videos will be uploaded later today -- 73! (Ivo Ivanov, QTH: Sofia, Bulgaria, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
So that was probably it; 11645/9935 bear the defective Avlis transmitter (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420 Jan 28 at 0055, ERTOpen with Greek music, very good // somewhat weaker 9935, the latter with whinebuzz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1650, Jan 28 at 0100 UT, CBS News from KYHN, but checking 1120 KMOX, not //, 0104 UT KMOX already back to local while KYHN has another minute of national news (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 105.5, Jan 28 at 0122 UT, K288FX North Enid is back on the air, shux, and // weaker 88.9 KYLV OKC. So much for temporary access to 105.7 KROU Spencer/OKC, public radio from the University of Oklahoma. Unshux: next day, from 1522 UT and all day and evening Jan 28-29, K288FX is off again and KROU is in again. 
Manipulating a portable antenna, I am hearing two weak stations on 105.5, besides KGFY Stillwater, perhaps KWCO-FM, 3.3 kW in Chickasha [attn non-Okies: pronounced CHICK-uh-SHAY] (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [non]. 5980, Jan 28 at 0048, JBA carrier, maybe two of them. Have not checked for Chaski cutoff since January 21 when it happened at 0107:23*. So it should be approx. 0108:18 now after a week. But remonitoring continuously from 0107, no cutoff now until 0109:23.5* so that does not fit --- then it comes back on about a second later! and still on at 0111, so this time I suspect it is the otherstation, BBC via UAE which merely had a brief transmitter outage; so Chaski either reset to earlier closing, or not on at all or not propagating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA [and non]. 11905, Jan 28 at *0114:10, SLBC`s big carrier cuts on atop a very weak one on earlier, presumably CNR Beijing site from 0100 per HFCC, but which does *not* include SLBC here! Many `CLN` entries for IBB at IRA and various users of TRM, but nothing for SLBC itself on 11905, 11750 or 9720, where WRTH has them also using the Trincomalee site. 
WRTH does say the 0115-0130 segment seven days a week is in Bengali, 0130- Hindi, maybe English. Aoki continues to show 0115 Bengali, except Thu & Fri when it`s Hindi already, and this is Wednesday. Anyhow, dead air continues past the off-time signal I was expecting to hear well past 0115, until finally at 0119:04 South Asian songs cut on in one language or another. This has a very good signal level, but with trans-polar flutter. Aoki shows half-power, 125 kW at 345 degrees which is pretty good for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1757 monitoring: confirmed UT Wed Jan 28 at 0401 on Global 24 webcast and presumably via WRMI, 9395. Also confirmed from 1415 UT Wednesday on WRMI 9955. Ed Insinger confirmed the Wed 2201 on G24 via WRMI 9395.
WORLD OF RADIO 1758 monitoring: confirmed first broadcast UT Thu Jan 29 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, very poor, but L&C on webcast. Next:
Thu 1330 on WRMI 9955

** U S A. 7455, Jan 28 at 0042, WRMI no longer here during this hour, just RTTY, but open carrier over it on from 0054 before TruNews from 0100. For a few weeks at 00-01 UT, 7455 had carried System D of other programming including a repeat of Ukrainian Radio English at 0030-0100, in addition to 2330-2400 on 11580. Now I find that too is moved onto 11580, UR English at 0030; while 5850 continues to carry R. Slovakia International in English at 0030. The WRMI online schedule has been partially updated to show this. This means that the Albanian hour from R. Tirana on 7465 no longer suffers from 7455 splash, since it ends at 0100 (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490, Jan 28 at 0047, WBCQ is on with VG signal, conversation; nothing on 5110 now. So 7490 transmitter is not snowed out. Generally stronger signals make me suspect a new unit is in service. OTOH, at 0054, 7490- is still slightly on the lo side like the old one (or sometimes on the hi side, rarely right-on) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Jan 28 at 0630, WTWW-2 has finally come back to life after missing for several days --- and now Ted has decided to fill it with marathon reruns of his QSO ham radio show, now interviewing someone with hum and excessive down-in-a-barrel reverb. Also at 1416 Jan 28, day frequency 9930 is again/still QSOing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1420, Jan 28 at 1344 UT tune-in, ID in passing foro KBTN, C&W music, fading, along with slow SAH and hum. KBTN is 1/0.5 kW U2 in Neosho MO, not that far away in the SW corner; logged once before, May 26, 2012 at 1144 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 3975, Jan 28 at 0633, VR is on again, with same (very) old Latin rote stuff, clear here while colliding with CFRX on // 6070 (but Vatican usually atop even here: 350 to 1 power ratio helps) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 774, Jan 28 at 1334, JBA carrier, presumed NHK from the northwest; no other lowbanders audible, nor 1566 Korea South. Enid sunrise: 1336 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4937.2-USB, Jan 28 at 0045, 2-way in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0558 UT January 29
