Glenn Hauser logs May 24-25-26 , 2015

** BANGLADESH. 15505, May 26 at 1359, Bangladesh Betar IS is JBA, but with BFO, the timesignal cuts thru better right on the hour 1400:00! Incredible; a fluke, or will it be accurate from now on? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. Correxion: 15275 not 15265 is to block RFA: fixed:
15275, May 25 at 1315, CNR1 jammer in clear // 15265 with usual het from Taiwan off-frequency. 15275 is to block Radio Free Asia, Tibetan via Tajikistan daily at 13-14 since April 12, per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070, May 26 at 0108, R. Cairo, VG signal but with extremely distorted music in Spanish service
11935, May 26 at 0108, R. Cairo, VG signal but extremely distorted Spanish service: compared to 12070, 11935 is cutting out a bit more
9315, May 26 at 0108, R. Cairo, good signal, the last chance to hear the Spanish service clearly, but --- dead air
9965, May 26 at 0109, R. Cairo, Arabic, good signal but undermodulated with usual whine (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 1570, May 26 at 0647 UT, XERF with IMER call-in about the tornado that hit Ciudad Acuña; strangely, by 0652 they are playing a Spanish song to the tune of ``Fascination``, while fighting QRM from KBCV Missouri (see USA log). XERF should have been more interesting listening earlier.
And you should have heard how Laura Whatshername butchered ``Ciudad Acuña`` on BBC World News America, May 25 after 22 UT via OETA. How do you get to be anchorette of a major network newscast without knowing the first thing about pronouncing Spanish? Or not even knowing that she needed to look it up, practice? At least the other anchorette, Katty Kay, was distancing herself from uttering ``Los Angeleeez`` when recently originating from there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6876-AM, May 26 at 0106, 0117, 0119 and 0126 chex, no trace of The Crystal Ship, which per an advisory from John Poet at 2345 May 25, was expected to be relayed starting circa 0100. Storm noise a problem here, but not even a carrier detectable. Numerous posts at this thread
show it was on by 0133 after I had quit, past 0306 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 89.1, May 24 at 1940 UT, Enid translator is dead air again, i.e. K206CA, Oasis Network allegedly relaying 90.5 KNYD Broken Arrow, i.e. 80 kW on the other side of Tulsa. This may have been true initially, but now 90.5 pickup here would be blocked by much closer station, KGVV, 14 kW in Goltry NW of Enid, while Oasis` 88.1 KMSI 50 kW in somewhat closer than B.A. Moore would be a more likely source, altho not without CCI problems itself from KWOU Woodward et al.
WTFDA Database shows K206CA is only 205 watts instead of the usual 250 for a translator, maybe compensating for too-hi antenna of 93.6 meters? The same is true of another Oasis translator, K201IJ, 88.1 in Miamuh etc. OK with a height of 100.2 metres. If K206CA is really picking up 88.1 or 90.5 off the air, repeated dead air spans could be automuting when there is CCI? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15140, May 26 at 0122, poor and undermodulated signal in Arabic, presumably RSO, which is missing from 9500 where it should be during the first bihour of any UT day, and not on 9740 either where it should have been at 22-24, with 15140 off after 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 26 at 0107, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, OBX4M, Urubamba, until autocutoff at 0112:36* which is 19 seconds later than three nights ago, 0112:17*, averaging 6.33 later per. Altho rarely enough signal to listen to modulation, its 5 kW signal is just about always there to be detected with BFO. We are still anticipating an abrupt reset of the timer to circa 0100* to begin another long precession (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 26 at *0114:10.5, SLBC carrier cuts on, no doubt about it with BFO, yet it`s only a VP signal; music prélude starts at 0114:46.5, and 2+1 mistimesignal ends at 0115:21, typically late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17765, Sunday May 24 at 1936, recent new frequency from WHRI, with Indianapolis 500 coverage: apparently the stupid carace is over by now, sounds like a wrapup. On the entire SW band, this proves to be the second strongest signal, only after 9980 WWCR BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490, May 26 at 0123, sitar music, to WBCQ The Planet singing ID, jingle, bing, and JIP Brother Scare at 0124, who was already on 5110. Contrary to 7490 schedule for UT Tue which shows Rabbi Yaakov Spivak at 01-02, then at 02-04 The Overcomer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1570, May 26 at 0655 UT as I am trying to listen to XERF [see MEXICO], it has usual heavy SAH and QRM primarily from the closest US station allowed to share the frequency at night, ID as KBCV Hollister, i.e. SW Missouri, address in Springfield, Bott gospel huxter. They must have been desperate to get on the air, only 675 miles from 100 kW ND Ciudad Acuña = 1086 km. KBCV is 5/3 kW, night pattern major lobe NW, minor SE, with a null toward Del Rio, but plenty signal here away from the null if not on the major, while daytime is ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 12760-USB, May 26 at 0113, very poor signal with 2-way, seems Spanish, dashing hope that AFN Diego Garcia might have resumed on 12759-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 1548 UT May 26
** ARGENTINA. 15345v, May 25 at 0110, R. Nacional, poor signal and somewhat distorted modulation, opening a dramatic biography of David ---, an autor dramático born in 1935 in Buenos Aires, with `cello music, credits. This is on air after 0000 only on UT Sun & Mon, rather than RAE on 11711v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BULGARIA. 21310-USB, May 25 at 2040, LZ1MS calling QRZ North America and making numerous quick contacts mostly with Californians. No other European signals noted on 15m, but RRI broadcast was OK on 15170. If R. Bulgaria had been alive on 13m with high power, it should have been inbooming. QRZ.com lookup shows:
P.O. BOX # 1
SOFIA 1756
And an impressive CV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. 15275, May 25 at 1315, CNR1 jammer in clear // 15265 with usual het from Taiwan off-frequency. 15265 is to block Radio Free Asia, Tibetan via Tajikistan daily at 13-14 since April 12, per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 17730, May 25 at 2030, RHC announcer in Spanish introduces next service in Arabic as ``en FM e Internet``, only, no mention of shortwave! So even RHC is downplaying the medium (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 13850, May 25 at 0533, R. Cairo is back with another fruitless broadcast, dead air or maybe JBM in Arabic, poor signal with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 13650, May 25 at 2004, poor signal in Arabic is still here; must be RK on late past nominal 2000* and nothing on next frequency 17550 to N America; I keep a BFO on 13650 and finally cuts off at 2019*. By the time I`ve retuned to 17550, it`s now on with ME music, poor signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)
** MEXICO. Unusual update to the AM and FM
station tables in which the only changes seem to have been concession information on a couple AM-FM conversions no longer without AMs. (XEMU Piedras Negras, for instance, seems to be gone and all that's left is XHEMU.) Note the odd format, the old date with a _1 near it. TV has not been changed (Raymie Humbert, May 18, WTFDA Forum via DXLD)
XEMU is 580, 5/2.5 kW, La Rancherita and can be a big QRM problem for WIBW at SRS/SSS, and any time at night, as it`s almost opposite direction thru Enid and unnullable. So now I`m looking for it, really gone for good? May 25 at 0540 some Mexican music is way under WIBW, but there are 7 or 8 other XEs on 580, all with lower listed night power. Further chex needed.
If XEMU is off as a result of Mexican government policy to migrate AMs to FMs, that should open up the frequency in SW to Central TX in case any US station would like it (yet far enough from adjacents in Dallas and Austin, co-channel in Lubbock).
Mexico could hardly insist on FCC honoring such a deleted listing, tho ex-Canadians who have voluntarily quit AM for FM still must be protected, as it`s conceivable a new station could erupt on an open frequency there such as 580 or 700 in Alberta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 17855, May 25 at 2031, REE interview during `Españoles en la Mar` with scratchy modulation, also that way earlier in hour; good signal here, and scratch also the same on much weaker // 15490, so it`s an input rather than output problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [and non]. 13800, May 25 at 0533, R. Dabanga with stingers, via VATICAN, fair signal and double tone jamming from two carriers at slightly different frequencies on the hi side.
11645, May 25 at 0534, R. Dabanga via VATICAN, poor signal // 13800, and the Sudanese tone jammer is *still* stuck up on Dabanga`s ex-11650 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1774 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 24 at 2100 on WRMI 15770; and at 2300 on WRMI 11580; and 0330 UT Monday May 25 on WRMI 9955, with beep jamming. And 0300 UT Monday May 25 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109.8-CUSB. Next:
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

Access to podcasts, latest and previous shows:
** U S A. 7455, May 25 at 0107, WRMI is back to TruNews // 9395 & 5850, rather than fill music or RTI instead of on 7730 as heard 20-22 hours earlier.
Re: ``R. Prague instead of Brother Stair via WRMI Okeechobee May 18
0300-0400 on 11580 YFR 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu English tx#09, video:
-- 73! (Ivo Ivanov, QTH: Sofia, Bulgaria, May 18, dxldyg via DXLD)``
Clip is at 0300, and only other clip is at 0737 when BS is back on. Prague`s English is only half an hour, so really RP English for a full hour at 0300? On 9955, RP English is at 0300-0330 only on UT Sun & Mon, and May 18 was Monday.
So I check this one week later, UT Monday May 25 at 0300, when 11580 is back to BS; 9955 presumably Prague but hard to copy with pulse and beep jamming. Was it another anomaly last week, feed mixup? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 720, UT Monday May 25 at 0543 UT, surprised to hear `The Great Gildersleeve` oldtime radio on WGN. Such used to be at local midnite on 780 WBBM, but now it`s sticking to ``News 105.9``, with a `Stardate` at 0543 UT.
WGN schedule shows this is only a UT Monday 04-07 thing:
``11 p.m. – 2 a.m.: WGN Radio Theatre with Carl Amari``
It seems this week`s is only the seventh program in the series, each consisting of three different OTR shows, a full hour each?? Not noticed before on Sunday nights; and maybe WBBM is still doing OTR on weeknights? Finding a program schedule on its website is not so easy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
