Glenn Hauser logs May 23-24 , 2015

** BRAZIL. 11815+, May 23 at 2341, very poor signal with music, slightly on hi side, signature of R. Brasil Central, and also QRMed by crackling spur from 11780.1v, RNB/RNA, its signature, feds vs. state government stations. Goiânia is the closest major city to Brasília; such a pity between neighbors (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammers, morning of May 24, during the Sunday-evening serious music show featuring Chinese traditional instruments:
17170, May 24 at 1248, CNR1 jammer, good; none in the 18s, 15s OOB
16100, May 24 at 1249, CNR1 jammer, very poor
13870, May 24 at 1250, CNR1 jammer, fair
14980, May 24 at 1250, CNR1 jammer, fair
12950, May 24 at 1251, CNR1 jammer, very good!
11640, May 24 at 1252, CNR1 jammer, good with CCI
11785 & 11825, May 24 at 1253, CNR1 jammers, fair with CCI
Music is cut off abruptly at 1255:30 for excited talk, commercials?
12950, May 24 at 1350, an hour later, CNR1 jammer still/again here at good level, none higher except 15265 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11670, May 24 at 0326, RHC with stronger signal but less Spanish modulation than on // 11840, while 11760 is absent, closing at 0200? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9315, May 24 at 0322, R. Cairo music is suptorted with hum as English sesquihour draws to close. Only other frequency audible is:
9965, May 24 at 0322, R. Cairo Arabic, just barely modulated music. 13850 inaudible as it has been off last few nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY [non]. 6070, May 24 at 0314, nothing but CFRX audible here during the Spaceshuttle 03-05 UT 10 kW broadcast from Germany; vice versa in Europe?
DJ Spacewalker a.k.a. Dick publicizes his other weekly broadcast coming Sunday at 20-21 on 13800 (via BULGARIA) with this cryptic message which I have forced Google to translate from Finnish:
"Sometimes, perhaps you too feel that almost everything today is viturallaan. Yet not despair. For every now and then can take advantage of voice over radio waves is SpaceShuttle Radio International. And as soon as begin to feel that at least in the labor force is the special protection of the government."
Thus lending credence to his really being in Finland, despite address (maildrop?) in Netherlands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 15630, May 24 at 0318, flute IS poorly audible, so I then quick switch to 9420 for much better VG signal, ``Helleniki Radiophonia`` ID and cowbells, ``deftero programma`` = second program. May 25 is now supposed to be the official re-opening of ERT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11510, May 24 at 0327, Denge Kurdistane good signal with Kurdish music we always enjoy; much better than e.g. IRAN to N America on 13650, and blocked on 11780 by Brasil. I had thought at this hour the site is PRIDNESTROVYE, as in latest Aoki: 03-12 at 130 degrees & 12-13 at 116 degrees; 13-17 Bulgaria, 17-19 France. Eibi agrees, minus any azimuths; contrary to latest HFCC with registration from BRB still claiming entire span 03-19 is Moldova!
But earlier this month, received an unsolicited note from that transmitter site, so what site is it really at 03-05??
``Dear Glenn Hauser, we - the Radio center Grigoriopol - work on 11510 kHz from 8.00 till 16.00 Moscow time [05-13 UT]. Azimuth of 130 degrees. Modulation of 95-97%. P = 300 kW. We try to work perfectly well to keep in so heavy time of the customer. Thank you for good reviews of our work. Yours faithfully - Kayman, the engineer (a.k.a. Sanya Enigma, May 5, WORLD OF RADIO 1772)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 9689.9, May 24 at 0601, VON in Hausa talk and drumming, fair signal, and at 0602 also on 7255-, which I was not hearing a minute earlier. Since WRTH ID texts in non-English languages are scarce, I employ Google translate to find what VON *may* say in Hausa, minus any tone marx:
This is the Voice of Nigeria = Wannan shi ne Voice of Nigeria
[alone:] voice = murya
radio station = rediyo tashar
good morning = ina kwana
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.30-AM, May 24 at 0313, only sign of a pirate is a very poor AM carrier here vs storm noise. This thread, everyone east of here, says it`s Liquid Radio, tho no one mentions a .3 offset:,21881.0.html
** OKLAHOMA. 1430, May 24 at 0356 UT as I tune by, NWS robot is issuing flash flood warning for Tulsa County and naming many other towns around; so KTBZ has managed to break away from stupid sports talk. Tulsa is quite flood-prone with hills & dales. Suspect it`s on emergency day power & pattern, 25/5 kW, as I normally don`t hear it at night, when everything is pushed southwards, and 1430 occupied by KZQZ St Louis (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1550, May 24 at 0546 UT, multi-station ID too rapid to copy fully, for ``The Sports Animal``, including 1470 & 1490 (KVIN Vinita & KBIX Muskogee, resp.), some FMs and an FM translator, and 1550 which is KYAL Sapulpa, 2500/40 watts. Well, this is no 40 watts. Same pattern day & nite, major lobe SE, minor lobe west. Apparently regular stupid sports talk rather than weather emergency coverage here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1650, May 24 at 0542 UT, KYHN good signal now with `Red Eye Radio` and two seconds ahead of same on 1640 KZLS Enid/OKC; 1650 is almost synchronized with 1520 KOKC, as RER remains inexplicably on two stations in same market, more or less. Contrary to my last log after local midnite [CDT], when 1650 was with Alex Jones or something else. Per this sked:
`Red Eye` is 7-nightly at 12-5 am; but home page claims Alex Jones is M-F at 9 am-12 pm (=noon), contrary to the schedule as 9 pm-midnite! Scowling Jones promo rotates with smiling Herman Cain, also as 9 am-12 pm = noon. All four far-right wackos are equally to be shunned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 105.5, May 23 at 2350 UT, Enid translator is dead air; resumed with gospel music at 0002 UT check May 24.
89.1, May 23 at 2353 UT, Enid translator is dead air, still so at 0002 when 105.5 has recovered. We`ve had heavy rain, but no known power outages, and not much lightning; but they still need resetting? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 88.5 // 89.7, May 23 at 2353 UT, KZTH and KJTH, ``The House``, gospel huxters, have again plugged into audio from KFOR ``4`` during tornado outbreak, which however is south and west, and later east of OKC, not north. IIRC, these don`t get credit as official KFOR relayers, per occasional TV grafix, but I can`t find the info on KFOR website.
KOKH, RF 24, ``Fox 25`` now has some radio stations to relay its continuous severe weather coverage, i.e. the ones which had stayed in regular music or sports programming during the last storm: 96.9, 98.1, 98.9, 100.5 in OKC, checked at 2357 UT May 23.
104.7, May 24 at 0002 UT, NWS robot with warning for Tulsa, huh? Then ID for ``KQSN, Sunny 104.7, Ponca City``, which is hardly in Tulsa, nor audible there. (Ponca is roughly equidistant from OKC, Tulsa and Wichita and in the good old days of off-air TV only, Poncans could take their pick of which market to watch fringefully with their big towers and rotatable antennas).
RF 23, May 24 at 0000+ UT, KSBI ``52``, substation of KWTV RF 39 ``9`` is carrying CBS primetime (as it did for news at 2230 UT, but not at 23-24), i.e. `Madam Secretary`, to my surprise, apparently rerunning on Saturday nights the season just completed on Sunday nights; one of the few TV dramas I found worth watching. But it still gets overridden by NWS tornado warnings, while KWTV itself stays in wall-to-wall weather.
RF 29, May 24 at 0040 UT, KTUZ ``30`` breaks into Telemundo programming for local weathermujer, with some radar graphics, and even shots of flooding around OKC for several minutes. She`s reading off hand-held notes, in good but unseems native Spanish, and pronouncing local names in perfect English. Glad to see our SS station is not oblivious to storm emergencies. However, at 0109 UT next break I also check the other two Spanish stations on its same transmitter, ``36`` Univisión and ``48`` Estrella TV, and they are oblivious. Putting her on all three would blow the cover that these are not totally separate entities (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15140, May 23 at 2338, Arabic talk and chanting, fair signal, presumably RSO, which is supposed to stop this frequency and go to 9740 at 22-24, and which it sometimes really does (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 11825, May 24 at 0323, poor signal in English with flutter, so not everything here is BS: soon recognized as RRI and an ID, // much better 11800, but also fluttery. Disparity explained: 11825 is Galbeni at 100 degrees; 11800 is Tziganeshti at 337 for CIRAF 6 = western USA, both in AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 9515, May 24 at 0321, English from TRT/VOT, opening mailbag show, fair with flutter, not as good a signal as usual, with contact addresses; first letter is really a postcard from Renton WA. So this confirms as an on-week for the alternate-week program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1744 monitoring: as I am DXing on another receiver, I keep an ear on WA0RCR, 1860-AM kHz, for how late WOR may be appearing this week past nominal 0315 UT Sunday May 24; usually sufficient despite storm noise, but some deep fades. At 0312 till 0352 apparently the 2 meter net playback from Houston; then 0352 the ARRL News starts, normally 14 minutes? Recheck 0408, WOR is now underway at the Radio Latino item, which is already 7-8 minutes into the program. Next:
2100 UT Sunday WRMI 15770 [irregular]
2300 UT Sunday WRMI 11580
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5110v Area 51
0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955 [NEW]
1100 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955
0630 UT Wednesday HLR 7265-CUSB
1315 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
1430 UT Wednesday HLR 7265-CUSB
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
** U S A. 7730, May 24 at 0327, WRMI playing well-recognizable fill music, the polka piece, 0329 segué, 0339 the European Union piece with spoken bits in different languages. This is instead of R. Taiwan International in Spanish supposed to be this hour on #14 transmitter at 222 degrees. One wonders what`s the cause of all this fill music on WRMI: did the original source fail to upload a new show? Or was the problem at WRMI in properly playing it back? At least we don`t get dead air as on so many other stations. A greater, related anomaly:
7455, May 24 at 0342, oh oh, here`s RTI in Spanish instead of on 7730, and this is instead of TruNews which remains on its other two frequencies in English, 5850 & 9395. Feed mixup at Okee? W&W discussing reaching RTI on Facebook. Not rechecked until 0557, when 7455 is still not with TruNews but fill music? song in uncertain language, 0500 no ID and segué to a Brazilian song. During pause I can still hear the RTTY QRM which has been there forever, inherited from the WYFR era (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 750, May 24 at 0622 UT, WSB ID, instead of blockage by KAMA El Paso, Univisión Radio in Spanish; maybe it`s the weak music underneath. Can KAMA finally be back in whack?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1590, May 24 at 0350 UT, sports talk from NE/SW is dominant VG signal, phone 1-800-777-2907, then mentioning Mike Wynn(? might win?) Show on Yahoo Sports Radio. Meanwhile I had scanned the entire MW band on another receiver, looking for a // without finding any, just confirming it`s not ESPN as on local 1390v KCRC. 0358 UT local break plugs a music show, despite mainly being ``News-talk-sports, WAIK, Galesburg, Illinois``, weather from the Prairie Weather Center, and a few more WAIK IDs to remove any doubt whatsoever. 0359 UT a minute of dead air! 0400 joining some network news, not sure whence, leading with Oklahoma storms and flooding.
WAIK is 5000/55 watts U3 with address in Monmouth IL. This is no 55 watts! U3 means direxional, same pattern day and night, which is an E-W ellipse, tangent southward, so not unfavorable toward here as long as on day power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1657 UT May 24
** ALASKA. 9920, May 23 at 1520, no signal from KNLS English hour; WRTH Update says it`s ``expected to return in May``, so hurry up. Went off the air in early March due to antenna damage, initially supposed to be back by late March. Must have been more serious than first thought. OTOH, even when on, reception is quite iffy here off the back in a Lower 48. A-15 sked is nominally continuous 08-18 UT alternating Russian, Chinese, English on four different 9 MHz channels and one 7 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 13830, May 23 at 1315, big noise blob atop some talk modulation barely audible. Victim is IBB in ``Bod`` = Tibetan, via Tajikistan at 11-14. Normally we only hear CNR1 jamming. Nothing is too much to block this intrusion. This noise does not sound like DRM.
17665, Sat May 23 at 1320, CNR1 jammer, good signal // 15265. Latest HFCC of May 22 shows 17665 with nothing but IBB Tibetan (Bod) via Tinian at 01-02 Saturdays only. But Aoki adds BBC Uzbek via Oman at 1300-1330 on Sat/Sun/Thu, so China continues to interfere in the internal affairs of Uzbekistan. No others found 12-19 MHz except some more inbanders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY. 15640, May 23 at 0549, good signal with pop vocal music presumably in Arabic, 0554 chat in Arabic; 0600 multilingual ID as Voice of Hope, Radio Mundial Adventista, following program in French. It`s AWR, 250 kW from Nauen, switching from 128 to 188 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, Sat May 23 at 1354:46.5, Kevin O`Donovan in Farmington NM is on this week with listening tips on KBS World Radio, but he gets only 2.5 minutes and covers only three topix: Scandinavian Weekend Radio, Finland, hard to hear in N America so use a remote receiver, but it missed its May broadcast for technical problems; back with two more in June and fifteenth anniversary special in July; The Mighty KBC also difficult in NAm (except 9925), and now available on web with complicated URL I don`t manage to copy. Is that Kraig Krist`s? And KBS reception on 15575 improving with summer. He always closes with ``until next time`` but never says when that will be, as he`s not on every week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 9689.9, May 23 at 0544, VON is already on, good signal with hilife music, presumably as prélude to Hausa at 0600-0630 which has been sporadically appearing. Then check // 7255- and it`s also on early with good signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAO TOME. 4960, Sat May 23 at 0540, open carrier/dead air; must be VOA transmitter left on altho sked M-F only at 0530-0630 in French. Hausa is daily until 0530, and next transmission not until 0700 daily, more Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11520, May 23 at 1326, no signal from WEWN English unlike 23.7 hours ago, but back properly on 15610 after 1300 with poor signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
