Glenn Hauser logs June 18-19-20-21 , 2015

** CANADA. The ch A2 analog CTV station in the Maritimes, CJCH5, is in NS, not NB as I misstated in last report. Per the WTFDA list:
it`s only one sesqui-kW at Sheet Harbour NS, so getting that by double-hop would be extraordinary, rather than plain old CHBX SSM full-power at single-hop (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHILE [and non]. 12365-USB, June 20 at 2139, figuring this would be a likely time for another Copa América game (if the tournament isn`t over), so strain to hear CBV relaying one here --- yes, JBA talk at near-imagination level. I was surprised to read that others were not hearing this as well as I was last week. No signal from 15345v LRA Argentina which ought to be on now; off, or degraded propagation?
BUT: There happens to be another utility talker on 12365-USB, Aussie marine weather from VMC, Charleville, Queensland, more likely the trace I heard, and CBV is likely to QRM it when really on.
Per schedule
June 20 starting at 2130 UT was Argentina vs Jamaica at Viña del Mar. But hardly essential listening for Chileans or Pascuans.
For Sunday June 21:
1900 UT, Colombia vs Perú at Temuco
2130 UT, Brasil vs Venezuela at Santiago
Next match is not until Wed June 24 at 2330 UT involving Chile, when a 12365 relay will surely be required (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammers, morning of June 20: none in 16s, 14s, 13s, 12s
15775, June 20 at 1337, CNR1 jammer, poor; per Aoki, target is only a 0.1 kW Sound of Hope nuisance transmitter on Taiwan, which is usually the case, u.o.s., especially toward band-edges or WOOB.
15970, June 20 at 1337, CNR 1 jammer, fair
15340, June 20 at 1339, CNR1 jammer, good vs CCI which must be Reach Beyond Australia, which is always in Hindi at this semihour! But Aoki shows this is also another SOH 0.1 kW channel, so tough luck, RBA! You may want to have a word with your religionist kin, the Falun Gong.
15265, June 20 at 1344, CNR1 jammer, fair, always plus a het this hour only, tnx to off-frequency 250 kW R. Taiwan International
15115, June 20 at 1345, CNR1 jammer, good with usual CCI, target VOA Chinese via THAILAND (and 14-15 via Philippines)
18990, June 20 at 1346, CNR1 jammer, good! vs unheard RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, this hour, this frequency on Sats & Weds only
17485, June 20 at 1425, CNR1 jammer, good; Aoki shows VOA Tibetan via Thailand, but M/W/F only and this is Saturday. VOA varied jumparound, or mistake?
BTW, CRI East Turkistan in English on 17630 is not so good today, compared to the jammers which must be further east in China. 17660 CNR8 Korean is also VG today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 16180, Sat June 20 at 2137, 5-digit YL Spanish numbers mixed with digital noises, VG signal, presumably a 250-kW = RHC transmitter. I found this only after hearing her on 17570 mixing with local KCRC 1390, thus an overload on the PL-880, and 17570 minus 1390 = 16180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 11930 & 9565, Sat June 20 at 2140, heavy jamming vs mostly crowd noise, presumably R. Martí with a silly ballgame being broadcast but blocked by Big Brothers. Mustn`t encourage escaping by Cubéisbol stars to become gusano millionaires (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965, June 21 at 0134, R. Cairo, good signal but JBM music in Arabic service
9315, June 21 at 0134, R. Cairo, fair in Spanish with hum, somewhat undermodulated but not distorted
12070, June 21 at 0135, R. Cairo, VG signal in Spanish somewhat distorted but readable, and running one sesqui-second behind 9315! Does this mean one is Abis and the other Abu Zaabal site? Normally overnight, only Abis is scheduled.
11935, June 21 at 0136, R. Cairo Spanish is suptorted, and synchro with 12070, not 9315; and 11935 is axually about 5 dbu stronger than 12070 on the PL-880 meter. Sometimes 11935 is very weak by comparison (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non?]. Lots of sporadic E June 20, but very frustrating, as mostly weak signal CCI on channel 2 video, seldom even audio to ascertain whether Spanish or English. Anyhow, all in UT:
1541 on 2, algo video; lots of fading in and out, nothing logable for hours
1821 on 2, a bit of Spanish audio; more in and out video CCI
2203 on 2, constant bug in UR looks rather like an X, plus two lines of tiny text to its right which may well be call and location or something else IDable if I could only make it out. Closest thing to design is the TeleVer script T V logo as in Danny`s channel 2 reference, i.e. XHFM Veracruz (which my antenna is aimed at anyway); again visible at 2228; 2235 when dogs are featured on rest of screen
2246 on 2, now a small bug in LR, probably star of Televisa-2; heavy CCI continues
UT June 21:
0021 on 4, algo, variety show? Spanish audio; also usual CCI on 2
0113 on 4, ``en el Trece``, audio promo, so Azteca 13 net
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, June 21 at 0140, pirate music, country? Very poor, and slight reduced carrier? But that may rather be from remnant of my local KCRC 1390 x 5 harmonic. Numerous logs here, all out of states eastward from OK, say it was XLR8, until 0150* or 0152*:,22258.0.html
I also noted an AM carrier only on 6955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [non non]. 88.1, June 20 at 1452 UT, there is a sporadic E opening, supposed way up thru the FM band, so I am checking out the lowest open FM channels here. Altho I would rather hear `Radio Lab` about relativity on KWOU Woodward OK, since there is area morning tropo enhancement from KS and OK, to confuse things. Promo for some church event in Chesapeake VA! That leads to the nearest 88.1, WHOV in Hampton VA, 2/8 kW, 59/59 meters. Hmm, or is it?
Another Es check of 88.1 hours later, June 20 at 2122 UT, commercial (er, underwriting) from Greg Garrett Realty in Hampton Roads, on to gospel music. Same station still/again?? 88.1 is fading completely in and out like Es, but I soon find it is // and synchronized with our Oasis Network translator in Enid on 89.1, K206CA, which supposedly relays KNYD 90.5 Broken Arrow OK, instead of accessible KMSI 88.1 Moore OK, which is the station I am really getting thru the turbulent hot 94-degree summer afternoon troposphere.
Tho mostly Okie, Oasis does have an affiliate in VA, WYCS in Yorktown/Hampton, but it`s on 91.5 with no known translators, while WHOV 88.1 is unrelated, at Essence Hampton University, format black gospel/jazz, per WTFDA FM Database. The Oasis website clinches it at
which includes Greg Garrett Realty! So beware if you hear local Virginia (or Ohio) sponsors on an Oasis Network frequency which is really in Oklahoma (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 17855, Sat June 20 at 2131, REE is VG on NAm beam, 45-54 dbu, can even broaden bandwidth on the PL-880 to 9 kHz --- but no stupid ballgame! Surely there are some, but REE must not have the SW rights. Instead, music show, featuring classic American rock tunes, all in English! But presented in Castilian. First one at tune-in something about melting icecaps. 2132, Richard Harley(?) in Elvis style, ``Pretty Feet``; mentions Rod Stewart, ``Hot Lips`` (or ``Legs``? I don`t know much about this genre and generally don`t care to); At 2137 I check the other frequencies and all three are on, in descending order of strength here: 17715 good, 15490 poor, 15450 very poor. 2148, still hard rock in English, no SBG; 2150 YL sings in English, ``The End of My Nose`` but just a fragment, then ``Tongue`` as announced. 2150, ``Can`t Take My Eyes Off of You``, and wrapping up. I guess the theme was body-parts, à la Wolverine Radio. 2200 sign-off and IS keeps
playing past 2203+.
Marty Delfín of El País in Madrid tells us there is serious talk at REE about resuming English on SW, but I doubt this is what they had in mind! Yet 17855 would be a lot better than 6055 as before.
So what show was this? Schedule grid
claims nothing but `Tablero Deportivo` Saturdays 14-22 UT. But this 24 hour grid doesn`t really reflect what they put on SW, weekdays 18-22 UT either --- I know I have heard `Españoles en la Mar` sometimes, but it`s not shown on there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5110-, CUSB, June 20 at 0532, WBCQ is on again with BS, but VP signal unlike no signal 24 hours before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9475 & 5830, June 20 at 1335, WTWW-1 is AWOL from both its possible frequencies.
12105, June 21 at 0137, WTWW-3 is off instead of until 0200, but 9475 and 5085 are on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1280, KSOK Arkansas City KS, is still off the air, afternoon of June 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 11730, June 21 at 0139, Vatican Radio opening English segment to S Asia with schedule including another broadcast at ``3:28 pm``, into discussion of this Sunday`s liturgy. I guess they refer to the Sunday-only Angelus at 1000-1030 to numerous targets not including S Asia, per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0341 UT June 21
** ANTARCTICA [non]. 9590, June 19 at 2130, no signal at all when BBC was supposedly going to test Woofferton for the June 21 BAS special; however, another report said they had already decided which frequencies to use. Anyhow, don`t expect much signal here for the real deal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA. 6105.3, June 20 at 0014, very poor signal with some audio, presumably the Chile/Bolivia SBG on R. Panamericana that Bob Wilkner in SFL tipped us about at 2330. Also checked 12365-USB in case CBV was on again with relay but nothing heard there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. Re my channel 2 TVDX which included the ``Channel 590 Community Calendar``, on second thought, ``Channel 590`` would more likely refer to a high-tier cable or satellite TV channel than a MW frequency --- but searching various providers in the SSM area, no match for that either. Possibly some station other than CHBX snuk in. There is supposedly a ch 2 analog still active in NB, CHCH5 with CTV like CHBX, but I can`t relate it to the 590 MW station altho it is ``community``.
Richard Langley in NB says, ``Hi Glenn: With regard to your TV DX, commercials for retirement in Elliot Lake are shown across Canada, I believe. I've certainly seen them on our cable feed here in New Brunswick. – Richard``
Richard, OK, but that bit I got from reading about EL on their website, not from something in the DX. Just the 60th anniversary note.
A bit more sporadic E despite antenna aimed SSE, June 19, UT:
1738 on 2, ads in English, video; some hum, low audible het? 1741 word QUANTICO flashes on screen. As far as analogous signals go, especially when 6m Es maps agree, CHBX Sault Ste Marie Ont remains the prime suspect, at optimum skip distance, altho another Ontarian, CIII2, Global in Bancroft, is probably active too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. 21690, June 19 at 0509, CNR1 jammers, echoing, along with target RFA in Chinese, fair.
14920, June 19 at 1248, CNR1 jammer, fair; none in the 12s, 13s, 16s
14870, June 19 at 1248, CNR1 jammer, poor
** MEXICO. A bit of sporadic E, evening of June 18 = UT June 19:
0134 on 2, f bug in LR, = Televisia net 4 Foro TV, JBV
0139 on 2, Spanish language audio briefly
0215 on 2, algo video
0338 on 2, Spanish video, then Gala swirl bug in LR, drama
0352 on 2, SIPSE and GALA animated logos full-screen so XHY-TV Mérida (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, June 17 at 1526 UT, while tuning for Es DX, notice that local KLGB-LP Enid has buzz on main carrier and louder buzzy spurs on 94.1 and 94.5 [not 93.5 as typo in original report] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1778 monitoring: confirmed Thursday June 18 at 2100 on WRMI 7570; also confirmed Friday June 19 at 2130 on 15770, and 2130.5 on 7570. Next:

Access to podcasts, latest and previous shows:
** U S A. 9955, June 19 at 1236, African chanting and drumming, 1239 another such tune, must be fill music from WRMI instead of R. Slovakia International (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5109.8, UT Fri June 19 at 0516, no BS from WBCQ, which had been running until 0700 weeknights --- schedule change already, or transmitter crash again? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15650-15675 approx., 1413 UT June 17 [date and time missing from original report], crackling distorted FMy spur from WWCR which is // inbooming on 15825 (bodes well for a good sporadic E day). Tried for a match on the hi side which would be 15975-16000 but none heard there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1280, June 19 around 1830-1930 UT chex, KSOK Ark City KS remains off the air. BTW, I notice that some log editors don`t like to publish non-logs, but I think this info is just as significant if not more so than when a station *is* on and routinely loggable.
Of course nothing on their website
about an outage, where 1280 (since 1947y) appears to be a mere appendage to their FM 95.9, tho separately programmed. I hunt thru their Facebook
and find this after mostly commercial and event promotion:
``KSOK Radio Yesterday at 7:48am · [1248 UT June 18] Folks, we are working to get 1280AM back up and running! We'll Keep you posted! Like · Comment Booker T. Jennings III, Jenny Clark and Samantha McDonald like this`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
