Glenn Hauser logs May 2-3 , 2015

DX/SWL/Media Programs:
World of Radio schedule:
Alan Roe`s Hitlist of SW stations websites:
** ALBANIA. 9850, May 3 at 0125, R. Tirana IS, F-G signal, and LAH audible underneath at pauses (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11815+, May 3 at 0117, music slightly on hi side, from RBC, poor signal and marred by crackling spur from 11780.1 RNA/RNB. I recently referred to it as a private station, but it`s really owned by the Goiás state government, as in
which ought to confront the feds over this issue (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070+, May 3 at 0109, R. Cairo in Spanish with extreme distortion on very good signal and loud modulation
11935+, May 3 at 0110, R. Cairo, open carrier/dead air on good signal in Spanish[non]
9315.0, May 3 at 0111, R. Cairo, presumed Spanish, just barely modulated and what there is sounds suptorted
9965+, May 3 at 0112, R. Cairo, ME music, fair-good and not distorted in Arabic service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE. 21580, May 2 at 1822, JBA signal, only one on 13m besides inbooming 21600 WHRI. Still at 1848 when I manage to // it to 17850, so it`s RFI as expected, French to Africa; 21580 sked 17-20 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, May 3 at 0051, The Mighty KBC on new summer frequency via GERMANY, VG signal too with Eric bragging about the 125,000 watts (which is axually half-power). (WTWW is already on 5085, so no problem with 9930.) Kim Elliott was concerned with no 9925 signal until it came on late at 0010, and wasn`t sure whether his Radiogram would radiate circa 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1020, May 2 at 1850 UT midday check, KOKP Perry is still off.
1120, May 2 at 1850 UT midday check, KETU Sperry is off again (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 9500 & 9740, May 3 at 0111, no signals from RSO on either of the frequencies usually employed at this hour. Where is it? I then check 15140 and find instead WRMI/BS, probably receiver harmonic; see USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 2 at 0052, JBA carrier, presumed R. Chaski? But it`s even weaker than usual, and can`t trace it at all at 0100. Maybe have reset the autotimer now to earlier cutoff (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 17855, May 2 at 1831, REE is missing from its best (North American) frequency, during silly ballgame coverage still audible on 17715, only fair; 15490, poor, and no signal on 15450 either (nor 21620 which appears on some schedules earlier). Anyhow, leaves 17850 RFI alone without ACI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 3 at *0114:10.5 SLBC carrier on; 0114:46.5 music starts; 0115:12 mistimesignal ends, sign-on. WRTH UD shows it`s in Bengali daily rather than earlier skeds as Hindi some days of week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SWEDEN [non]. 15260, May 2 at 1836, fair signal with ME music, Arabic talk. Aoki shows it`s IBRA Radio via Woofferton UK 18-19 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 21400-USB, May 2 at 1823, WX7JM making quick contest contacts, giving AZ/MCP signature, i.e. Phœnix AZ, Maricopa county, 1824 with KB8LDE, unheard, in Oregon, and then ``CQ Contest, 7QP``; what`s that? Then I hear a few others on 15m (12 and 10m having been checked first, dead), as there is some sporadic E in play:
21340-USB, May 2 at 1826, K9OM in Indiana working a K7 for this
21368-USB, May 2 at 1828, W7UUU in the Seventh Area QSO Party (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17895, May 2 at 1829, VOA, VG off the back of Greenville, promos for music shows at 00-03 & 11-13 UT; and for `Music Time in Africa`, at 15 & 20 UT Sat & Sun, says hyper Heather. 1830 cut to sign-off with YDD. This big steady sig is about as close as we can get to hifi on SW. Wish they would run it all day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 15630, May 2 at 1834, rap music in English, fair signal, 1837 announcement not in Greek, 1844 `Lean on Me`; 1846 announcement and soul music; by 1851 faded to JBA. Aoki shows it`s VOA Amharic via FRANCE at 18-19 daily plus M-F appendages: 1730-1800 Afaan Oromo, 1900-1930 Tigrinya (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1771 monitoring: 1860 kHz, confirmed starting at 0314:43.5 on WA0RCR, Gateway 160m ham broadcast from MO, and removing as much music as possible from my opening, along with it much of what I say; hard to hear here in noise level. Next:
Sun 2100 WRMI 15770 [? But not last week. Check 7570 too]
Sun 2300 WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5110v Area 51 [but 5110 has been off or QRP]
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 
Wed 0630 HLR 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 
Wed 1430 HLR 7265-CUSB
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v 
Thu 0330 WRMI 9955 [CANCELED per latest WRMI schedule]
** U S A. 11920, May 3 at 0127, WRMI continues to play fill music during this hour instead of Fámily Radio in Spanish. This is really a positive development, as Jeff has put together a very nice library of diverse eclectic music from around the world, worth listening to for its own sake as I did for a while tonight. Wish he would publish a playlist. First there was rock song with guitar, language unknown; 0131 orchestral and YL vocal in Mideast song. Good signal. (Meanwhile my streetlite fires at 0129.5 building up to full strength by 0130; slightly cloudy at sunset or it might have been a few minutes later; and the almost-full moon is right up near it) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11825 & 5850, Sat May 2 at 2329 check, both Global 24 frequencies are OFF from WRMI. But finally after a month, G24 Facebook has a new post: ``Global24 April 30 at 4:37am · We expect to post an updated schedule soon. Thanks.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15140, May 3 at 0102, Brother Scare with wide fading range from nothing to poor, and in synch with 7570 WRMI, so this is second harmonic, but suspect it`s produced by PL-880 receiver overload with too much random wire plugged in, rather than transmission. The WRMI fundamental on 15190 is running BS about one word behind, as it`s sent thru the Radio Africa Network (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5110, May 3 at 0052, very poor carrier and no modulation audible on USB or LSB; recheck at 0059, now there is some JBA music on 5109.7-USB, as Area 51 is supposed to be on now, while the frequency has been missing the past week.
7490, May 3 at 0053, WBCQ, presumed piratical show with guy talking, but he`s interrupted every few seconds for dead air as long as 10 seconds. It seems we are not missing any words, as picks up where he left off, i.e. playback is stopping and restarting sometimes in mid-word, or buffering (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1660, May 3 at 0120 UT, dominant signal has Nostalgic announcer and ``Sunny Side of the Street``, loops NNE/SSW. Most likely KQWB West Fargo ND, but it was last known to be Classic Country format; rather than ``KMBZ`` business format from KC/MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15640, May 3 at 0106, very poor signal with gospel? music and English announcements. Probably receiver overload image of the PL-880, but not matched to any of the WWCRs; NHK direct from Japan is fundamentally on 15640 until 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0457 UT May 3
