Glenn Hauser logs March 8-9 , 2015

** ANGOLA. 4950-, March 9 at 0521, very poor carrier, JBM, presumed RNA as always off-frequency. Must be about to fade around local sunrise, 0511 today at Luanda per gaisma.com. Latest precise measurement of it was 4949.75 by Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal, who also said modulation was extremely low, March 1 at 2252 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRIA [and non]. 9630, March 9 at 0527, AWR theme, way atop but with LAH obviously from off-frequency R. Aparecida, Brasil, AWR off by 0529. It was per HFCC, 300 kW, 190 degrees from Moosbrunn at 0500-0530 [sic] in Hausa; Adventists vs Catholix! Or more broadly, Christians vs Christians! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BANGLADESH. 15505, March 9 at 1355, carrier already on from BB, fair with flutter, 1358 IS, 1359:17 mistimesignal ends, opening Urdu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11710 & 11745 & 11815, March 9 at 0530, crackling spurs from 11780.1v RNA/RNB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. Confirming some expected DST shifts, but not all checked yet:
11760, Sunday March 8 at 1955, RHC with classical guitar, and interviewing the performer in English, so first English of the day has made usual DST change to one hour earlier, 1900-2000.
11760, Sunday March 8 at 2259, Arnie Coro propagation feature cuts off and back on the air, and wrapup of `En Contacto` confirming that its second airing has shifted one UT hour earlier, 2245 on this and several other frequencies; sometimes it would start 5 minutes earlier so list it as 2240v.
11950 & 11860, March 9 at 1408, RHC carriers are still on openly, while 11760, 17730 et al., remain modulated.
Guess what? As of 1557 UT March 9, the schedule at
still hasn`t been updated to show DST changes
** CUBA [non]. 5980, March 9 at 1206, R. Martí very good with no jamming audible, bad news about Sen. Menéndez. 5980 runs until 1300 UT even during Cubano=Americano DST, while 6030 is off after 1200. In A-15, 5980 is registered for 07-10 only. BTW, there is a proposal to ``privatize`` R. Martí organizationally, but still pay for it with USG funds, trying to have it both ways, hoping the Cuban Commies will appreciate such a modification (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CZECHIA [non]. 9955, Monday March 9 at 1210, lively banjo band playing novelty music from 1928y with Czech lyrix; 1215 as ``Sunday music show from Radio Prague``; clear of jamming at first but by 1217, pulse jamming is ramping up; WRMI relay, of course. 
New DST program grid effective March 8 shows R. Prague times are now: 
English: Mon-Sat 1200-1230, Tue-Sat 0030-0100, Sun-Mon 0300-0330
Spanish: Mon-Fri 1000-1030, Mon-Sat 0200-0230
** INDIA [and non]. Correxion: 9380, not typoed 9830! (It so happens RTTY is almost constantly really on 9830 but not 9380. I wonder if the RTTY station also made a punch-up typo?) Any publication of the incorrect log MUST also publish this correxion, sooner or later, ASAP, tnx. Fixed as really heard:
9380, March 7 at 1354, RTTY QRM dominates, but can hear some programming under, so AIR has managed to modulate today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT [non]. 21540, March 9 at 1353 check, chalk up another day with no signal from R. Kuwait, leaving weak 21505 Sau`di the OSOB. Will Kuwait ever come back, and with it the 15540 English at 18-21? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1560, March 9 at 0558, full ID including street address in Ciudad Juárez, from R. Vida ID, into NA now with local midnite in UT - 6 zoneshift to MDT. I.e., per IRCA 2014 and Cantú as of Feb 19 printout, XEJPV still called ``Indie`` as a 1 kW daytimer! I wonder if the call has changed too, unheard this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MICRONESIA. 4755+, March 9 at 1200, very poor carrier until cutoff at approx. 1200:12*, surely PMA The Cross, V6MP in standard auto-behavior. Latest exact measurement was 4755.58 by Christoph Ratzer, Austria, A-DX via SWB, Feb 28 at *2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1763 monitoring: confirmed Sunday March 8 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, sufficient (on non-9955 services, no timeshift).
Also confirmed UT Monday March 9 from 0302 on Area 51 webcast and also at 0319 check on 5110-, WBCQ. Next:
Tue 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
As chances to hear WOR on SW are reduced, you may want to subscribe to a podcast: three different sources are linked atop 
** U S A. 17775, March 9 at 1354, open carrier already from KVOH, poor-fair; 1400 JBA music. Ray Robinson tells us that KVOH will no longer be making DST shifts, so new schedule is still: Spanish 14-19 M-F on 17775; English 00-07 Tue-Sat, 01-07 Sun/Mon on 9975. 
Program sked has now been updated as of March 9:
On the March 8 `Wavescan`, Jeff White said it was until 05, so `Pastor Melissa Scott` must have been a late addition, daily at 04-07, as if 5935 WWCR and 6090 Anguilla were insufficient for her (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 790, March 9 at 1307 UT, ``Curm Dial-a-Trade`` show opening, both host and callers, some from Missouri, with deep Ozarkish accents. 
Reserves first 10 minutes for new callers. Proudly announces nationwide WATS number tho 790 coverage is more limited. See http://www.kurm.net/dialatrade.htm
KURM is in Rogers AR, now on 5 kW ND day power but still in via SRS as it`s too far by groundwave (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 2660+, March 9 at 1203 UT, gospel music fading down and up to JBA, no doubt 2 x 1330, KGLD, Tyler TX. Always slightly on hi side like previous log Feb 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1608 UT March 9 
***************************************************************************************************************** BRAZIL. 4885, March 8 at 0617, R. Clube do Pará is gone again, at least from overnight service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 5040, March 8 at 0618, RHC English is off, perhaps getting a headstart on DST scheduling to keep in step with the Miami Mafia?
11760, 11860, 11950, 15230, 15270, 17730, (and 9850 is already off), Sunday March 8 at 1348, after a Coro talk, RHC `En Contacto` is wrapping up as expected shifted one UT hour earlier for DST, now Sundays 1335 (and expected later around 2235, Monday 0135). 1350 next show `En Compañía del Doctor`, M&W with graphic medical advice this time about disfuncción eréctor.
11760 at 1421 has CCI under from Iran IS, i.e. starting Bengali hour via Kamalabad. 11950 RHC is still on but dead air.
11760, Sunday March 8 at 1500, song in Spanish, RHC IS and 1502 ID saying 11760 will stay on until 1900, plus 102.5 FM in Habana, and ``Audio Real``, constantly misrepresenting the nature of their webcasting; 1503 introducing Sunday Esperanto, starting late, but shifted about one hour earlier for DST, with usual opening themesong about Cuba in that language. Normally the other two Esp`o broadcasts do not timeshift: UT Sunday 0700 on some 6 MHz frequency or another; Sunday 2230, maybe still on 15370 instead of French other days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 890, March 8 at 0244, song about basura, with WLS easily nulled, immediately identifiable as R. Progreso since it`s // 900 but which is about one second (more than a single satellite hop would be) behind 890 but a tad louder. // 4765 is very slightly ahead of 890. Per WRTH, 890 is 200 kW in Chambas, Ciego de Ávila province, while 900 is 50 kW in further San Germán, Holguín (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965, March 8 at 0159, R. Cairo good with flutter, but Arabic music is JBM. At 0230 I notice that instead of usual Arabic, 9965 is in English!!! better modulation than // 9860 which is a reverb apart. American-accented YL with weekly press review about terrorism, etc. 0234 ending, timecheck as 4:35 am in Cairo = 0235 UT (so continuity at least is done live?), ID and music break, 0240 some other talk feature. I again compare the two English frequencies: 9965 has more flutter and lower modulation; 9860 has more modulation and more distortion. Feed mixup, I suppose, which is not unknown at ERTU. Both are registered as Abis site.
9905, March 8 at 0159, R. Cairo other Arabic service is fair with flutter, suptorted modulation
9860, March 8 at 0200, R. Cairo, opening English distorted. See 9965 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** GERMANY [non]. 15215, March 8 at *1600, carrier on, good signal but with deep fades, opening make-good for the dead-air Feb 21 Radio Öömrang annual special hour disaster. This time MBR manages to modulate via Issoudun, FRANCE. Previous publicity claimed modulation was ``low`` originally, while anyone who tried to hear it knows it was zero. This time there are two or three long low-key interviews in Frisian, the host interspersing English play-by-play thruout, and some High German. First one is with an emigrant from Amrum to USA, Julius Peters. Opening, mid at 1633 and closing at 1659 gives frequency 15.215 and 500 kW; everything going OK until running a bit past 1700 and cut off a few seconds later before could complete giving the address for contributions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, March 8 at 0201, Greek music and ID, back on the air after missing some days. At 0301 IS and ID for ``Helleniki Radiophonia``, not ERTOPen, if that is significant. Good signal, only here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUYANA. 3290-, March 8 at 0614 VOG music unseems // 9460 BBC talking at the moment but then I think they are further out of synch than usual; somewhat better signal on 3290 than usual, but modulation is not up to par (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1010, March 8 at 0627, dominant signal from NE/SW is ``Recuerdos 103.7``, I thought, but uplooked later it has to 106.7, the FM side of XEVK Torreón, Coahuila; (seis and tres are easily confused) and IRCA Log adds that transmitter site is across the state line in sibling city Gómez Palacio, Durango. Cantú and IRCA agree it`s 5/1 kW and official name is ``Tu Recuerdo``, i.e. memory, i.e. nostalgia format? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7375, March 8 at 0155, tune-in just in time to hear Uncle Eric`s shoutouts to regular listeners of The Mighty KBC, many familiar names every week, and wrapup. Good signal via GERMANY but splatter from bigger sig on 7385 WHRI, and also squeezed by jamming/Martí on 7365.
What`s in store for A-15? Normally the shift to 9925 not made until early May, not late March. But HFCC A15 shows 9925 already from March 29, UT Sundays at 00-02. And guess what, MBR registrations for 9925 and 7375 are still/again showing conflicting ``hrv`` language, so is Croatian Radio making a comeback? It was the predecessor to KBC on these same frequencies, but daily. Don`t bet on it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1650, March 8 at 0228 UT, I think something`s amiss at KYHN. Normally our closest 1650 is the dominant signal at night, but I`m hearing mainly Spanish from CO/TX and English from IA. And it`s also been unnoticeable for a few nights. Is KYHN off or QRP? Maybe not applicable weekends, but previously during `Red Eye Radio` it would be // local 1640 and always a few words ahead of it. Further chex needed. Note: office and transmitter are in Sallisaw, OKLAHOMA, but most editors and other DXers seem to insist on attributing KYHN to mere city of license, Fort Smith, Arkansas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. 9730, March 8 at 0259, RTI signing off in Spanish with addresses, fair signal. This is the 02-03 relay via Issoudun, FRANCE, to be canceled at end of B-14, perhaps replaced (if the tests were successful, and why not?) by WRMI on 11920. Note: 9730 HFCC registration pretends this Spanish hour is RFI, not RTI, since the ChiCom ban any participation by nemesis Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1763 monitoring: confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, starting UT Sunday March 8 at 0424:18.5 UT, so far consistently 9-10 minutes after nominal 0415. Opening theme is truncated to minimize the music; we expect that no content will be edited out. From next week with DST, one UT hour earlier; more WOR this week:
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v
Tue 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
As chances to hear WOR on SW are reduced, I suggest you may want to subscribe to a podcast: three different sources are linked atop 
** U S A. 9975, March 8 at 0159, KVOH is off! I was notified March 1 that KVOH would no longer be carrying WORLD OF RADIO, which had been at 0230 UT Sundays and from next week would normally have shifted to 0130. So the new sacred soccer show at 0130-0230 is off the air too, at least this week. 9975 remains absent at later chex. A new program schedule is due ASAP to cover DST shifts and other changes, but not yet, still as of Feb 14:
** U S A. 7570, March 8 at 0259, WRMI breaks away from the BS for BZ ID, and 0300 repeating the `Shortwave Shindig` special from 8 nights ago. Neat opening montage of original IS and multilingual IDs and archival ISes from real stations. The original had a 4-minute outage, and then a 19-minute extension, but unchecked whether the replay ran 15 minutes over or was edited down. VG signal as always on 7570 via NW antenna (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 9955, March 8 at 1426, WRMI is still on with slow gospel huxter, later turns out to have been a clip since BS is audible at 1429 past 1500. We expected that the daytime silent period would now start at 1400 instead of 1500, but new 9955 program schedule in EDT = UT -4
Now shows it stays on all day again with BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5109.8, March 8 at 0308, measuring WBCQ since last night it was on exactly 5111.0. I wonder if these are two different transmitters or a single one which won`t stay put (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 700, March 8 at 0250 UT, easily with WLW nulled, we still find Spanish, complacencias de alabanzas, child phoner from Tamaulipas (originally?) for someone in Dallas (note: never pronounced ``Dayas``), so KHSE Wylie is apparently still aiming for Cincinnati at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 770, March 8 at 0248 UT, UNM promo in silly ballgame, score Lobos 36, Wyoming 33; not bigsig but sufficient from KKOB. At this angle we are faced with the usual quandary: is it the 50 kW main transmitter in Albuquerque`s North Valley (bane of balloonists), bleeding around its null toward WABC (assuming it`s in whack), or is it the 230-watt non-direxional nighttime filler in Santa Fe? Or both, which must be synchronized? Normal owner of 770 at night here is XEACH Monterrey but can be nulled for KKOBs, and not much from it now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1350, March 8 at 0238 UT, after ``Cats`` song, ``The station that everyone at the office enjoys listening to, 1350 KRNT``, loops NE/SW, then C&W ``Forever in Blue Jeans``. KRNT is 5/5 kW U2 in Des Moines IA, as talk/nostalgia format in NRC AM Log 2014-2015. That slogan is not so applicable on Saturday nights! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1680, Sunday March 8 at 0701 UT, with KRJO LA nulled, can barely make out WPRR MI with Ralph Nader, maybe a guest, or his own show on Public Reality Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
