Glenn Hauser logs June 5-6 , 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 15200, Sat June 6 at 1140, special English talk about sneezing, best into the elbow, etc., fair-good signal; 1143 outro as `Spotlight` see for ``Why Do I Sneeze`` episode. It`s RBA as scheduled this quarter hour in English only on Saturdays, but no ID, 1145 into another Burmesish language which is really Rawang, daily. As a language-lesson approach to evangelization, `Spotlight` is typically mixed in with other language broadcasts rather than all-English, and per Aoki, English on this 320-degree service from Kununurra is also appearing Sun/Mon/Tue/Thu at 1115-1130; other days one Chin dialect or another, or Burmese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 13920, June 6 at 1149, CNR1 jammer, poor, none in the 12s, 14s, 15s or 16s. 13920 is again heard at 1340 with good signal, none in the 12s, 14s or OOB 15s.
18990, June 6 at 1337, CNR1 jammer, poor, as required for this RFA Tibetan hour on Sats & Weds via Kuwait; none in the 16s or 17s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6165, June 6 at 0543, RHC English is only fair strength and undermodulated, much worse than // 6100, 6000, and even 6060. What`s wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9315, June 6 at 0226, R. Cairo with suptorted music in English service
9965, June 6 at 0230, R. Cairo, VG signal with whine but Arabic is just barely modulated
13850, June 6 at 0232, R. Cairo, very good signal with Arabic drama, somewhat distorted but still readable, not // 9965 other Arabic service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, June 6 at 0228, Greek music is VG from ERT, back on sporadically still; nothing on any of the other 7, 9, 11 or 15 MHz frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 600, June 6 at 1100 UT, music other than NA, so probably not in UT -5 zone, fades at 1102 during full ID mentioning Mazatlán, Sinaloa, so XEHW 5/1 kW, ``La Mejor`` as listed by Cantú, IRCA and WRTH but the latter puts it in Rosario. Altho Sinaloa is a hotspot for sunrise skip to here, seems I have only logged this one a couple times before in March and April of 2013, as in DXLDs 13-13 and 13-15.
When I started at 1055 UT today, by the dawn`s earliest light, there were Mexicans on just about every channel at the low end of dial, as Enid SR is 1114 UT, to edge slightly earlier to 1113 UT during the next week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 700, June 6 at 1105 UT, timecheck for 6:05 on 88.1 FM, just as it`s hit by low rumbling het from another station cutting on the air, presumably XEGD Chihuahua. No 700s are listed with an FM 88.1, but must be XEDKR in Guadalajara, relaying Radio Red out of México DF which *is* also on 88.1 there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 710, Saturday June 6 at 1115, that preacher in some variant of Low German, whom we know comes to us via XEDP, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua, fading a few minutes later. Mentions Hermosillo, and sounds like a few English words mixed in (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 960, June 6 at 0215 UT, I`m marveling at how, even without a Fox-hole during the `Clark Howard Show`, I can null local KGWA down to nothing by extremely precise rotation of the DX-398 on the easel in my second-floor radio room. The slightest nudge will bring it back in. But as it`s sitting in the null, KGWA starts cutting in all by itself. Is something happening intermittently with their power/pattern, or is the DX-398 responsible? Have not noticed such behavior before (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1000, June 6 at 0604-0606 UT, dead air from KTOK OKC, during which I can make out some Spanish and some English from understations, the former WSW likely Juárez. 0606 UT KTOK comes to life with music presumably prélude to another C2CAM talkhour (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 21829-USB, June 6 at 0236, after finding no signals on the 21 MHz broadcast band (and didn`t notice any on ham band either), here`s intermittent SSB, first just saying ``Charlie Alfa Hotel``, then at 0237 shifts up one to 21830-USB, with same; 0238 blowing in mike, feedback or tone, and full call fonetikally as KG7CAH, except I`m not sure of the second character, which sounds more like ``frog`` than ``golf``; 0240 more knocking mike around, blowing; 0241 blowing, feedback, full call again with same question mark. Evidently an ham in the Northwest testing. Maybe he`s lysdexic, thinx he`s on 21380 inside the hamband? lookup shows:
Michael G Nelson
1121 Harrison Ave PMB 128
Lacey, WA 98503
However, in case it`s KF7CAH, I also look that up and find that he`s not far away right here in Enid! Capitalization sic:
Michael D Anderson
423 w elm
enid, OK 73701
So it could be an overload or spur, unknown frequency whence. I think he must be saying ``fox`` instead of ``foxtrot``, demonstrating that there`s a very good reason for the ``-trot`` to be part of that F fonetik! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1776 monitoring: confirmed Friday June 5 good at 2130 on WRMI 15770; and very poor at 2130.6 on WRMI 7570 in noise level, but presumably much better further east and in the skip zone of 15 MHz. Next:
1930vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
0315vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [last week: from about 0325-]
2100 UT Sunday WRMI 15770 [irregular]
2300 UT Sunday WRMI 11580
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5110v Area 51
0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955
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
For all our broadcasts on all media see
Access to podcasts, latest and previous shows:
** U S A. 850, June 6 at 0218 UT, no KOA yet, but instrumental hymns looping NE/SW, presumably KFUO Clayton MO still on even after 9 pm local now at midsummer, as KOA`s sunset is not until 0230 UT in June & July. Our sunset was 0146 UT and its latest a month from now will be 0153 UT, per (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1060, June 6 at 0602 UT, EWTN is very good dominating channel, with ``repeat of Sunday Night Prime``. I.e. KRCN, Longmont, Colorado, 50000/111 watts, obviously stuck on day power to the delight of Mother Angélica and The Vatican. Hardly any het from off-frequency XE, nor KIJN TX/NM. At 1119 UT circa sunrise here, nothing much; could KIJN be back in whack? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1190, June 6 at 0213 UT, `Open Line Friday with Colin Donovan` from EWTN, ergo KDMR Kansas City MO, 5/0.5 kW (not KPHN as in NRC AM Log: remember they then swapped calls with El Dorado 1360). FCC sunset in June & July is 0145 UT, to cut from 5 to 0.5 kW; it soon faded, maybe really powering down circa 0215 UT? I shortly also have EWTN on 1060, q.v., no doubt KRCN CO, but not enough signal on two receivers to check if matching (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1200, June 6 at 0212 UT, heavy C&W music atop talk show, WOAI really getting QRMed! Not exactly --- I can`t get a null on either and it`s soon clear that WOAI is QRMing itself with double audio modulation; and the music cuts off a minute later uncovering the `Michael Berry Show`, who was apparently unaware what was happening to him. So much for the flagship of Clear Channel, or whatever (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5980, June 6 at 0223 UT, very poor signal with talk. Unseems WWCR mix, which is capable of producing leapfrog of 5890 over 5935 another 45 kHz higher, so what? Later it occurs to me that this very date is when Scandinavian Weekend Radio is on the air for the 24 hours of the first Finnish Saturday of the month --- but according to
they are on 6170 until 0500 UT switching to 5980. Maybe it`s a receiver overload image of unknown origin on the PL-880 with a bit too much antenna clipped on. I could hardly believe 100 watt SWR would be making it here, least of all in the summer. (Yes, this date, I`m monitoring an hour+ later than the Chaski check.)
SWR don`t always adhere to their frequency schedule, so when I`m on again at 0546 I check all four when 5980 and 11690 are supposed to be vigent, but absolutely no carrier on those nor 6170, 11720. Ivo Ivanov confirmed they were in fact active as heard in Blgaria (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1625 UT June 6
** CHINA [and non]. 21690, June 5 at 0512, fair signals both in Chinese, about equal CCI from CNR1 jammer and RFA Chinese this hour only via TINIAN. Ahhh, summer propagation! This is getting to be a regular, as we creep into Solstice. Per Aoki, there is an additional 21690 hour which Must Be Jammed, 06-07 when it`s RFA Tibetan via UAE.
17860, June 5 at 1320, CNR1 jammer, fair with CCI, // 15115. Aoki shows 17860 is BBC Uzbek via OMAN, here at 1300-1330 on Wed/Thu/Fri only, and this is Friday.
18980, June 5 at 1320, CNR1 jammer, fair, vs unheard RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, scheduled this hour, this frequency, Tue & Fri only
13980, June 5 at 1328, CNR1 jammer, very good, but none OOB in the 19s, 17s, 16, 15s, 14s, 12s --- just the usual in-band spots on 17, 15, 13 and 11 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 13740, June 5 at 1408, open carrier, dead air, as the sloppyrators at RadioCuba have failed to turn it off at scheduled 1400* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 17630, June 5 at 1410, CRI English discussing F- and other naughty word use, usual fair signal. I still see some list-logs of this from EurAmerica as MALI site, as shown in Aoki at 14-16, but which ALSO shows Urumqi site at 12-15. This is OBVIOUSLY from E.T. as signals are comparable to the other CRI E.T. services before 14 on 17560, 17630 and 17650. I don`t even hear an echo on 17630, which would confirm Bamako is really on during this hour, but if one did hear CRI English at 15-16 on 17630, then it would have to be Mali, barring any further changes. The Mali signal is aimed eastward allegedly 100 kW, while Urumqi is 500 kW, 308 degrees northwestward toward Europe and America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070, June 5 at 0103, R. Cairo in Spanish, good signal, and distorted yet still readable!
11935, June 5 at 0103, R. Cairo, Spanish, just barely audible, strange
9315, June 5 at 0103, R. Cairo, Spanish, poor signal just barely modulated
9965, June 5 at 0104, R. Cairo, Arabic, good signal but very undermodulated, yet not distorted, plus usual whine (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Sporadic E opening the morning of June 5: I turned on the analog ch 2 snow around 1415 UT. Finally:
1520 on 2, fade-in algo with Gala bug in LR, presumably XHY Mérida
1526 on 2, bug in LR of MTY tv and below it 26 degrees and 10:-- clock, edges partly off-screen. So this is XHCNL, Saltillo, Coahuila, which relays ch 34 from Monterrey; talk show with YLs
1529 on 2, something else stronger with wild studio show including guy in costume reciting poetry; news crawler abottom including Tarek Aziz falleció. 1534 to full-screen news titled MATUTINO EXPRESS with YL anchorette, circular bug in LR can`t make out; 1538 fades. Search finds this program is M-F starting at 8:30 am [HCMV = 1330 UT], on Televisa`s foroTV network (so not XHY which is Gala with Calle 60)
Here how Televisa describes the show:
``ENTRETENIMIENTO --- Matutino Express --- Es un concepto informativo con una visión diferente de ver la noticia, serio pero con un toque que arranca la sonrisa. Lunes a Viernes 8:30 de la mañana por FOROtv
Inicia tu día con un buen Matutino Express, con un concepto informativo, divertido y una visión diferente de enfrentar la noticia. Los conductores Esteban Arce, Adriana Riveramelo, José Ramón San Cristóbal, Lalo Salazar y un gran equipo de colaboradores están dispuestos [para] informarte y entretenerte con todo lo que necesitas para despertar de buen humor.
Matutino Express está cargado de Noticias, Deportes, Espectáculos, Clima, Historias de Ciudad, Lo más Insólito de la información y mucha diversión. Matutino Express, se saborea muy temprano de lunes a viernes 8:30 de la mañana.
Elenco: El "Rudo" Rivera (Deportes), Helena Guerrero, David Ramos "El Reporñero" [sic, made-up word?], Quique Muñoz, Érika Holstein (Clima), Armando Ramírez y San Martín``
¿Hasta cuándo? The online program schedule only displays the future for the day in progress, and assumes México is on UT like my computer! Their accentuation is sporadic, so I have inserted them where correct.
At this time 6m Es map shows heavy opening centered over Kentucky but one sole XE involved, XE2OR, who is in Nava, Coahuila, and often the only 6m activity in the whole country
1541 on 2, weak video, looks like TELEACTIVA bug UR = XEFB Monterrey
1546 on 2, MTY tv fade-in again, talk show, with LR bug as before, again at 1556
1607 on 2, fade-in infomercial for Rocket Hose! Yes, still in Spanish. 3-for-one-offer, etc., phone 1-800-120-6214. Still same going past 1612. Maybe it`s still with MTY bug, not sure. Please move it further in from corner! (in USA toll-free numbers, can the one after 800 be a 1 now? Looks odd.)
1612 on 4, algo video with MUF spike, nothing further
1616 on 2, PLAN B on backdrop of talk or commercial show; soon fades and nothing further in next sesquihour.
BTW, Raymie reports that the next analog cutoff will be July 14, when lowband DXers must say goodbye to Ciudad Juárez` XEPM, Tu Canal 2, and XEJ-TV on 5. However, after the imminent elexion, things may move along quicker. Also see this NY Times story via Mike Cooper:
Free TVs in Mexico Are Seen as Having Political Strings Attached ---
The government is vowing to give away 10 million digital televisions.
** OKLAHOMA. 960, June 5 at 0500-0505 UT, NO Fox-Hole of dead air from local KGWA Enid, nor on several other recent nights. Hope they haven`t fixed it permanently. I would have to check every night for at least a week to be sure, and that`s inconvenient (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 23, June 5 at 1432 UT, KSBI OKC has added a 52-2 `TEST` of black and silence. The word TEST shows on the DTV tuner, but not on the PSIP field. So now this sub-station of KWTV 39 ``9`` may be about to give us yet another rerun sub-sub-channel? The original KSBI did run a 52.2 duplicating an LPTV but not since KWTV bought it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, June 5 at 0100 I am finally tuning in earlier to detect the reset autocutoff time of R. Chaski, still hearing a JBA carrier. It cuts off at 0102:27.5* so we may now expect that to precess ~6 seconds later per day for the next few months. The reset a few days ago must have been to approximately 0102 instead of 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PUNTLAND. 13800, June 5 at 1305, not even a carrier detectable from Puntland Radio --- has anyone heard it in June? No reports I can find. On May 31, S. Hasegawa told the DXLD yg, ``Puntland Radio on 13800 kHz has confirmed several Japanese DXer that the carrying the audio of Puntranndo TV at 1400 UT on May 29 and 30. including English advertising. Live streaming S. Hasegawa``. Also possibly bearing on this is a story via José Miguel Romero2, June 1, but which does not mention name of station concerned:
``Puntland Authorities Detain Editor of Local Radio
The authorities of Somali regional state of Puntland have detained Radio Journalist and editor of Daljir Jamal Farah and director Abdirahman Gardi. The two are said to be detained in Garowe in connection to a discussion program aired on Friday night criticizing the performance of regional state administration President Abdiweli Ali Gas. The regional authorities suspended National Television SNTV last week for allegedly misrepresenting administration efforts on fleeing Somali refugees from Yemen.
Detention and closure of media stations is very common in Somalia.
Earlier this year Somali security agencies have shutdown Shabelle radio station for allegedly broadcasting security threat and public incitement. The horn of African country is described by committee protect journalists as the dangerous environment for journalists to operate after Syria and Iraq. More than 50 journalists lost their lives since the breakout of the civil war 1992.`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [and non]. 13800, June 5 at 0514, R. Dabanga via MADAGASCAR, good signal with NO +carrier jamming for a change; 11645 at 0518, R. Dabanga via VATICAN is poor (no sign of CCI from Greece), and tone jammer is still stuck on 11650; is no one paying attention at the Sudanese Jamming Command??? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7457-USB, June 5 at 1301, AFA4RX, NCS of Air Force MARS net designated SEM2 (all given fonetikaly), calling stations for traffic, but no replies audible and none received at first. Then she (?) goes on to call VI and PR stations specifically. It seems I have 9 previous logs of AF MARS on this frequency going back to 2008y, and a year ago the net designator was logged as SIM2, covering the SE quadrant of USA. Searching now on AFA4RX call leads firstly to some URL concerning Viagra. And to this more relevant 124-page pdf from 2008/2009:
which finally on page 112 mentions AFA4RX once with an e-mail address at the Pentagon (not Pentagun, ha ha, as the Brits like to missay it). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 7350, June 5 at 0525, VOA English news about Africa, going to silly ballgame segment, fair signal. Had not noticed this before, but Aoki shows this frequency started May 11, 0505-0530 English added on to the beefed-up Kirundi service at 0400-0505, both M-F only and this is Friday; 100 kW, 350 degrees via BOTSWANA. Once things settle down in Burundi (not yet?) these may go away (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. A reminder that the next airings of WORLD OF RADIO 1775 are separately on 7570 and 15770 from WRMI, Friday at 2130 (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330-CUSB, June 5 at 0103, WBCQ is on again, apparently now regular evening schedule on this frequency, but span as yet undetermined for politico-religious client(s). I see that on June 5 Ivo Ivanov has copied my language about this, including being ``surprised`` which for me was back on May 29 when I first heard it. At 0105 check, 5110v is JBA, // much stronger 7490v with Brother Scare (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505+, June 5 at 0105, WRNO is still missing. They come and go unpredictably with no explanation, a great way to lose whatever minuscule audience they may have acquired (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1846 UT June 5
