Glenn Hauser logs January 3-4 , 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 13630, Jan 3 at 2127, English discussion, poor but // fair 17840, so R. Australia as scheduled 21-23 on 65 degrees from Shepparton. BTW, HFCC shows CRI English via Mali also here at 2100-2130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA. 4717-, Jan 4 at 0130, very poor with music, no doubt R. Yura, as Bob Wilkner reported reactivated lately at least sporadically (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11747 & 11813, Jan 3 at 0708, spurs from 11780.1 RNA/RNB are detectable, but not 23 hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [non]. 4765, Jan 4 at 0131, still no R. Progreso, nor at 0149 recheck; canceled for 2015y? However, there is a JBA carrier, and running-water ute QRM. I assume it`s TAJIKISTAN, which EiBi has on a 24-hour schedule, altho Aoki shows 4765 off at 20-03; WRTH 2015 shows on at 23-19 UT, and HFCC misses it completely. EiBi also has two Brazilians on the air at this hour; WRTH only one as irregular (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, Jan 4 at 0149, not only is R. Progreso AWOL from 4765, but no Rebelde here either. At 0142, however, a R. Rebelde is dominating 1620 kHz. 0619 recheck, 5025 is back on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15230, Jan 4 at 1427, RHC is poor, undermodulation breaking up, much inferior to 15370.
11860, Sun Jan 4 at 1435, RHC `En Contacto` is replaying its annual tribute to the 159 ``most active`` listeners, i.e. ones they have heard from, grouped country by country in countdown from the least to the most, nothing but reading off name after name. As usual there are only 5 from the Estados Unidos, all unrecognized Hispanic names. Topping the list is: CUBA, as RHC is the one SW station dentro-Cubanos know they can listen to without getting into trouble (and adding FM in Habana no doubt helps). Instrumental background music starts as ``Jingle Bells``, by Brasil switches to something more apropos, and concludes with ``Deck the Halls`` and ``Merry Little Xmas`` --- raulforbid they should play any sacred Xmas music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965.0, Jan 4 at 0115, R. Cairo is not off-frequency for a change, fair with flutter, Arabic music
9860.0, Jan 4 at 0116, R. Cairo is not off-frequency here either, less flutter than 9965, but open carrier/dead air in ``Spanish``. 9860 is 325 degrees from Abis, 9965 is 331 from same, should be no difference.
12080, Jan 4 at 0129, R. Cairo Spanish, suppressed distorted modulation, but better than nothing; fair with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ETHIOPIA [non]. 17630, Sat Jan 3 at 1600, HOA music and announcement in Somali, fair with some noise, jamming/DRM? 1602 sounds like Qur`an. HFCC B-14 shows this merely as some MBR transmission from FRANCE. Aoki specifies it as Radio Xoriyo Ogaden, Tue & Sat 1600-1630, 500 kW, 130 degrees from Issoudun. Despite the language, it`s not for Somalia, as filed in WRTH 2015 under ETHIOPIA target broadcasts. Originates in Toronto, Canada from the Ogaden National Liberation Front. The Ogaden makes up 29% of the area of Ethiopia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 15650, Jan 3 at 1603, open carrier/dead air, fair with flutter. Surely ERTOpen as often defaults with them. Yet in HFCC where no Avlis registrations appear any more, the only 15650 entry is a NEW one for 24 hours, 7 days a week, covering ALL CIRAF zones 1 thru 85, from: SMG = Vatican, 100 kW ND. That pretty well covers it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 9595, Jan 3 at 1611, tone test, 1613 AIR IS, poor; 1615 unreadable YL announcement. HFCC shows it`s the Russian service registered early from 1600 to 1715, 500 kW, 325 degrees from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7375, UT Sun Jan 4 at 0110, at first The Mighty KBC via GERMANY seems missing, then very poor signal can be pulled with music. 0136 a bit better at poor-fair, but still a strain to listen. Bad propagation from Europe tonight?
Yet Romania is good on 7325, 7340 at 0112. There is very little difference among Nauen, Galbeni and Tiganeshti in great circle path to Enid, all peaking tangent approx. 62 degrees north between Iceland and Greenland (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA [and non]. 11770-, Jan 3 at 2125, slightly on the lo side, African language poor-fair with hum, squeezing 11775 Anguilla along with 11780 Brasil from its other side. I could not recognize this as Arabic but so listed by Aoki at 21-22, and think it must be Hausa as in WRTH 2015 --- but VON language scheduling is very erratic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Jan 4 at 0134, fair signal with distorted music; 0135-0137 SSTV tones; 0137-0140 music, 0140-0141 pause. Best sound on the PL-880 when tuned to 6949.95 or so. More music and pauses. Still going past 0202. If there were any voice announcements, they were very brief and I missed them. Several logs here,20205.0.html
as KCPR, per blurry SSTV image featuring a baby. We`re getting some lightning crashes despite frigid winter weather. That really disrupts the slow AGC on the PL-880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, Jan 4 at 0102, two very poor carriers on slightly different frequencies, and trace of some modulation. Approx 0105:39.5* one of them goes off. That fits the R. Chaski precession as noted 8 days earlier until 0104:51.5* or averaging 6 seconds later per 24 hours. The other carrier remaining is BBC via UAE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, Jan 4 at *0114:10 good carrier with flutter cuts on atop a JBA carrier. Haven`t timed the SLBC sign-on for a few weeks, so here we go: music prélude starts at 0114:49, 2+1 timesignal ends at 0115:18.5, sign-on announcement, so it`s still ``right-on mis-schedule`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 171 kHz --- I don`t DX longwave much for lack of proper antennas, but decide to check for Médi 1, Morocco anyway, Jan 4 at 0152 UT, but here`s what I get instead on the DX-398 tuned to 171-USB: ham N7WST clear as a bell, contacting AB6LI. N7WST says she is in Lake Havasu City AZ.
She was on a Caribbean cruise in December. Lots of photos on page, but logbook is ``being updated``. This is obviously a receiver image from some HF hamband or maybe 160m, but whence? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1754 monitoring: confirmed on KVOH 9975, UT Sunday Jan 4 at 0231, after usual opening procedure: 0225 from open carrier to praise music, 0230 sign-on. Glad they`re back on tonight, as missing last night. Next:
Sunday 2300 on WRMI 11580
UT Monday 0230 on World Radio Network via satellite & internet [NEW]
UT Monday 0400 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955
UT 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. 9395, UT Sun Jan 4 at 0109, Global 24 with `The Fringe Radio Show` for January 3, i.e. live from Utah, giving span as 6-10 pm MST on G24 via WRMI; = 01-05 UT. Good signal now. Certainly one of the odder non-pirate shows on SW, about UFOs, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXLISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330-CUSB, fair UT Sun Jan 4 at 0119, WBCQ is on with rock music, seems // both 7490 and 5110 but none of them synched with the others. Seems 9330 is first, then 7490, then 5110. WBCQ online schedule never shows these ad-hoc(?) 9330 transmissions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, UT Sun Jan 4 at 0109 check, WTWW-3 is still in Russian Bibling during this hour way past midnight in Moscow; did not get around to rechecking after 0200 or 0300 Jan 4, when at 0335 Jan 3, Pastor Melissa Scott was newly on this station; just a test?
9930, UT Sun Jan 4 at 0113, WTWW-2 is back on so it hasn`t broken down; playing ``Devil Went Down to Georgia`` tune about a fiddler, but not the Kyle Dillingham version which would be hard to beat. Enid`s terrific fiddler gave another concert here on Dec 28. I expect he`s on YouTube like everyone else.
5085, Jan 4 at 0619 check, is on with country music, VG signal here, but MUF is down so that 5830 WTWW-1 is poor as are neighbors 5890 & 5935 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNID 5085
** U S A. 13845, Sat Jan 3 at 1606, something about running from the devil: sounds like neither PMS nor DGS, who cannot be heard either on 11775 or 12105. Yes, WWCR schedule, as of Jan 4 still old from Dec 1, shows at 16-17 Sat only, 13845 breaks away from The University [sic] Network for `The Zeph Report` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Correxion: WMLK mentioned twice instead of once; fixed:
9265, Jan 3 at 0329, open carrier/dead air, good signal. EiBi thinx WINB finishes at 0300; but subject to variation. Unless it`s WMLK testing, fat chance. WINB website shows in a relatively recently updated schedule as of Dec 21,
the final Friday show is *starting at 0300 UT Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 880-CUSB, Jan 4 at 0146 UT, nulling KRVN, hear a mention of Monument Valley from E/W, soon obvious play-by-play in English of some silly ballgame, not sure which, but it`s divided into halves; also involving some Falcons, long pauses, crowd noises. So KHAC Tse Bonito NM has broken away from gospel-huxtering for something more important. And as usual on day facility of 10 kW ND instead of 430 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1540, Jan 4 at 0143 UT tune-by ``here on Radio Jalapeño, KEDA`` pronounced in English, then ad in Span[gl]ish from San Antonio TX. This is usual dominant night signal here instead of KXEL IA which has a deep null toward the south. KEDA night pattern with 1 kW toward the WNW is not at all favorable for us either, while 5 kW day pattern is less rigid. KEDA easily overleaps 1540 KZMP The Metroplex, also Spanish but ESPN Deportes, with less power and mostly to its east (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5085 approx., Jan 3 at 0712, checking for WTWW-2 activity, instead hear very strong close carrier(s) consisting of multiple tones cutting on and off. Very many peaks as tuning across with BFO; not what you would expect from a broadcast transmitter, but maybe some kind of test (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11810, Jan 4 at 0127, talk in unknown language, carrier crackling and breaking up (not a spur from Brasil 11780). Aoki and HFCC show both S Korea in Spanish, and CNR8 100 kW, 15 degrees from Beijing site in Mongolian; while HFCC claims China is in Kazakh, and KBS with an imaginary 2-hour Spanish broadcast at 00-02 on 81 degree beam. WRTH 2015 and EiBi say Kazakh. I did think I heard a Russian word which would be more likely in Kazakh than Mongolian. I`ll go with probable China (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1839 UT January 4
