Glenn Hauser logs May 31-June 1-2, 2015

** CHINA. CNR1 jammers morning of June 2:
13980, June 2 at 1342, CNR1 jammer, fair, an echo apart from 13690
13690, June 2 at 1342, CNR1 jammer, very good
13830, June 2 at 1342, CNR1 jammer, poor, weaker than 13980
12950, June 2 at 1345, CNR1 jammer, fair
14870, June 2 at 1345, CNR1 jammer, very good! And a few seconds delayed compared to all the others
15120, June 2 at 1346, CNR1 jammer usual inbander with CCI from victim
15265, June 2 at 1346, CNR1 jammer usual inbander with het from Taiwan
16775, June 2 at 1347, CNR1 jammer, fair
16100, June 2 at 1347, CNR1 jammer, poor
17440, June 2 at 1348, CNR1 jammer, poor. This frequency strikes me as new. Yes! never reported in the DXLD archive by me or anyone; and not in current Aoki either
18980, June 2 at 1349, CNR1 jammer, very poor. Chex as the Tue & Fri 13-14 spot of RFA Tibetan via Kuwait
18870, June 2 at 1349, CNR1 jammer, very good! Another newish spot, reminding us to scan the entire 18-19 MHz region, and today I also scan all the way up to 21000, but no more found. But 18870 is in Aoki as one of countless Sound of Hope 0.1 kW nuisance transmitters from Taiwan, requiring the full force of ChiCom jamming to block it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5040, June 2 at 0135, RHC Spanish is very undermodulated, with big hum; wiggle that patchcord! Normal modulation on several other Spanish frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070 & 11935 & 9965 & 9315, June 2 at 0111, NO signals from any of the usual four R. Cairo transmitters. Propagation not so good, but should be well audible as long as Turkey is, on 9770 & 9870, among others in the region at 0133 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 580, June 2 at 0520, I am trying again to ID the Mexican music station mixing with, and mostly way under WIBW Topeka KS with `Coast to Coast`. If WIBW is nulled, so is the competition. But occasionally the XE fades up when the KS fades down to a SAH, such as at 0524, seeming live DJ with birthday music dedication, but no local references caught. (In Spanish, instead of nacerdía, they say cumpleaños, literally ``completing years``.) Finally at 0550 another fadeup clinches it: ``La Rancherita del Aire`` ID in passing, which is XEMU, Piedras Negras, Coahuila, 5/2.5 kW --- so contrary to Raymie`s suggestion, it is not yet quitting AM for only FM 103.7, tho likely to be its eventual fate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, June 1 at 1849 UT, KETU/KEOR Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa is back on the air with usual music, shortly after I posted that it had not been heard since May 13. On caradio, after seeming open carrier circa 1800 UT. Breaks between music at 1859 UT and 1901 UT but no ID, no announcements at all, nor have I heard any since, no commercials even. Most of the tunes are `norteña` with male vocals. Perhaps still plugged into La Picuda format from Los Ángeles.
1120, still/again on June 2 at 0123 UT with music, making SAH of ~6 Hz with growing KMOX silly baseball game; and music continues past 0130. In June, official SR/SS for facility 3651, known to FCC only as KETU, are *1100/0145* UT (July: 1115/0145 UT). It also has a Critical Hours proviso, reducing power from 10 to 7 kW, which presumably means during the two hours after sunrise and before sunset. Another check 1650 UT June 2: it`s on (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, June 2 at 0109, no carrier from R. Chaski, so maybe autocutoff timer has been reset closer to 0100*, if not just off the air this date. By now since last check a week ago, it should have precessed to approx. 0113.5*. Some storm noise from Texas, and computer noise from mine, but not more than I often cope with to detect OBX4M (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, June 2 at *0114:10.5, carrier on from SLBC, very poor signal, so music start at 0114:46.5 is JBA, but I can still make out the 2+1 mistimesignal ending at 0115:19.0, its typical spot (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330-CUSB, June 2 at 0108, WBCQ is on again with call-in `Line of Fire`, very good signal; 0119 discussing whether BB King was really a Christian. A bit of audio also when switched to LSB reception, but much louder on upper. Meanwhile, 5110v and 7490v are both Brother Scare. 9330.0 appears to be close to on-frequency, tho no attempt at preciser measurement. I have been checking 9330 at random times since first caught back on air May 29 around 0500, after months of silence. The online program guide still has NO entries for 9330!
No program by that name is anywhere on the 7490 or 5110 schedules
either. Show site station list
does not include WBCQ, in Maine just an FM station in faroff Portland. Live time is 18-20 UT M-F. Subtitle is ``Revolutionary Radio with Dr Michael Brown``, but a cursory look at the site indicates it`s just another far-right gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, June 2 at 0111, no signal from WTWW-3, which is normally on until 0200 with additional hour of different passé Pastor Pete Peters stuff as if fulltime on WTWW-1 weren`t more than enough (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGSEST)
** U S A. 7505+, June 2 at 0117, WRNO is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1500, June 2 at 0459 UT I make another attempt to ID the station audible with KSTP MN nulled as much as possible, as heard 47 hours ago with `Coast to Coast`, despite lack of any known affiliates on frequency. Now I am getting only an open carrier, making SAH of ~10 Hz with KSTP. At 0500 UT a bit of rock music but probably a third station, as OC continues to dominate 0504-0507+ UT. The null on KSTP is not far off from Pawhuska OK east of here, and I still suspect this is coming from KPGM daytimer as explained in May 31 log. Still same at 0534 UT final check (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1733 UT June 2
** CHINA. 18930, June 1 at 1346, CNR1 jammer with fair signal, quite a find after no OOB jammers heard from 10 to 18 MHz. 18930 chex as the RFA Tibetan via Kuwait frequency at 11-12 & 13-14 on Mondays (and 12-13 on Sundays)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 930, June 1 at 0454 I start monitoring this frequency intensively, as WKY OKC has been off the air since at least early afternoon. I have previously been able to log several stations despite it by tight nulling (and it was on slightly reduced power for a while), but now that`s not necessary. At first I am mainly getting a weak but steady signal with Spanish music and wonder if that could be WKY on much reduced power as its initial comeback? But this música is romántica, far from the lively stuff WKY normally plays and loops about SSW, not SSE. No, it`s México, as 0459 segué with no ID to choral national anthem. Likewise no ID right after it, just ``son las 12 con 2 minutos`` and back to romx. Some QRM like NW/SE in English, which would be another good catch.
Finally 0507 canned full (?) ID so over-produced that I can`t understand it! It includes beeping if not code SFX. At 0523 recheck, this signal has faded out leaving a weak mix of US stations. 0537 fades in again with XE music; I doze along and at 0602 finally catch a partial ID as ``---- Radio, 90.3 FM``, so that means it`s one of my two main suspects listed: XEQS, Fresnillo, Zacatecas, which on FM is XHQS 90.3, ``Romance en Radio, Romántica`` per IRCA Mexican Log (rather than closer XESHT Saltillo, Coahuila, with FM on 102.5). XEQS is 10/3 kW, three sources agree; city-to-city distance 1548 km = 962 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, May 31 at 1950 UT on caradio at the cemetery, north side of Enid, WKY OKC is off!!! No longer Indomable, very unusual. Fairly quiet location but some powerline noise from edge of property. At midday I can`t hear anything else on 930, but only in this absence of WKY can I hear spikes/splatter so far away from nearby local 960 KGWA. It does open up 920 for presumed KLMR CO; see USA. I should have spent the evening DXing 930, but did not get around to it until 0454 UT June 1 when WKY was still off. See MEXICO. Rerechecked at 1510 UT June 1, now WKY is back on. Nothing seen on homepage about an outage
and the latest Facebook entry was May 30, https://www.facebook.com/laindomableok
BTW, the not very detailed ``full schedule``
shows large blox of ``Indo Music`` --- what`s that, really, rather than just a play on its slogan? hardly Indonesian, including all weekend from 8 pm Friday to 6 am Monday [0100 / 1100 UT], and not showing the token pubaffs show en inglés Sundays at 7 am CT, which I have not reconfirmed lately but likely still exists. WKY also will not turn down a commercial in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, May 31 at 2012 UT check, KEOR/KETU is still off from Sperry. Last date heard with any modulation and carrier was May 13 as in DXLD 15-19. I expect to mention it no further until/unless there is at least a carrier. Altho unscrambling which call is really in effect would be nice (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1560, May 31 at 2013 UT, bandscan on caradio finds dead air from KEBC Del City. No one is paying attention on a Sunday afternoon (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES. 11990, June 1 at 1349, VOA Korean with usual bigsig here prolonging the 21-degree beam; but considerably overmodulated/distorted while starting `English with You` language lesson, tsk2. At least one of the Tinang transmitters goes out of whack like this periodically (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [non]. 17855, May 31 at 1828, no signal from REE in this sporadic North American service, unQRMing weak 17850 France which otherwise should never have chosen to go adjacent to Spain on a mostly-vacant band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1775 monitoring: confirmed all three WRMI broadcasts for Sunday/UT Monday May 31/June 1: 2100 on 15770, 2300 on 11580, 0330 on 9955. Also confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109.8v-CUSB at 0300 UT Monday June 1. 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. 9370, May 31 at 1826, WWRB BS is off, no signal, while neighbors 9475 WTWW and 9980 WWCR are on and audible, virtually the only daytime signals on band overcoming noise levels, the SSOBs if not the OSOBs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 750, June 1 at 0607 UT, Spanish music and talk atop WSB and hardly nullable, i.e. opposite KAMA El Paso, still blasting away eastward instead of protecting WSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 920, May 31 at 1950 UT on caradio in absence of 930 WKY, very weak signal unobscured here with music, 2000-2007 UT talk with some fading, but can`t make out anything definite. Presumed 5 kW ND KLMR Lamar CO, our nearest at 460 km = 286 stmi, city-to-city. Little Rock is a bit further and never makes it on groundwave, also direxionally unfavorable, and may be on reduced power. KYFR in Shenandoah IA dominates 920 at night with a 2.5 kW lobe this way; 5 kW day lobe is a bit more due south from there, and distance is 533 km/331 stmi (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 580, June 1 at 0616 UT, Mexican music under much stronger WIBW Topeka talk; can`t really null either, like the case with XEMU opposite in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, but which has been reported migrated to FM-only. Still trying to get an ID on this. If not still XEMU, the other Mexican closest to the same direxion beyond there is XEAV Guadalajara. Chihuahua or Sonora might be more likely but off the DF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
