Glenn Hauser logs July 11-12, 2015

** CUBA. 11880, July 12 at 0002, RHC in Kriyol with VG signal // 5040. The Bauta-2 transmitter on 11880 is supposed to quit at 2400 after English to Africa, and move to 6060 for Spanish, which I didn`t think to check. 0000 Creole is supposed to be on 5040 only. 11880 was off at 0035, while 5040 continued in regular French.
9710, July 12 at 0010, RHC Spanish only fair, with CCI underneath. Only thing listed is CRI Portuguese via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN; Aoki shows azimuth of 308 which would be way off Brasil, toward Europe and North America, while HFCC displays a more believable 269 azimuth. Anyhow, 9710 continues with another bihour of RIC Spanish on a more northerly beam, despite RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 11935, July 12 at 0034, R. Cairo, good signal, Arabic talk and music, extremely distorted
12070, July 12 at 0034, R. Cairo, good signal, Arabic talk and music, extremely distorted. About the same as // 11935 tho the resulting sound is slightly different
9315, July 12 at 0034, R. Cairo, very poor signal in Arabic but sounds as distorted as // 11935 and 12070
9965, July 12 at 0035, R. Cairo, other Arabic service with fair signal, undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 12025, July 12 at 0033, talk in Spanish with hum, i.e. VIRI scheduled 0020-0220 via Kamalabad, poor. New PNG relay by Australia presumably on since 2200 but doesn`t propagate here until much later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 17550, July 11 at 2015, 2128 and 2350 chex, NO signal from R. Kuwait, which had been broadcasting Arabic to Central & Western USA at 20-24 UT. Riding the MUF, this might depend on propagation, but more often than not in the non-winter months this has been audible, sometimes quite well, but subject to flutter.
Ivo Ivanov reported July 10 that this transmitter (which was also on 5960, 7250, 11630 and 13650 at other dayparts), is no longer on the air since Junend. It was the last one left, previous ones having disappeared at Mayend (9750, 6050) and Febend (21580, 21540, 15540). So scratch another country off the SWBC list. There were once 5 x 500 kW transmitters at Kabd, and now there might as well be zero.
If Radio Kuwait had not stupidly run this last transmitter all winter on 17550 in the middle of the night for several years, when it would propagate only into outer space, it might not have worn out by now!
Except â the big IBB site, ``George A. Moore Transmitting Station`` (who was he?), remains with per WRTH 2015, 4 x 250 kW and two more being added; plus two high-power MW with a third being added.
Kuwait is yet another IBB host country which missed a golden opportunity to require access to IBB SW facilities for its own external service, as part of the deal, like for the Philippines and Thailand. Even now, IBB might take the initiative and offer RK some transmitter time; if they even care about SW any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, July 12 at 0012, pirate music, very poor in noise level; gone at 0032 check. This thread has numerous logs of it, all from states east of OK, as Northwoods Radio:,22496.0.html
showing it went off at 0025 or 0026 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6833.5-USB, UT Sunday July 12 at 0013, informal OM QSOs about gardening, recipes, heard an NNN-zero call, so it`s Navy MARS; poor in noise level. Do they ever gab about nautical matters? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1781 monitoring: confirmed on WA0RCR, MO, 1860-AM, UT Sunday July 12 in progress at 0339 when I mention 5995 as an alternate PNG/Australia frequency, which was :21 minutes into the show, so must have started circa 0318. Next:
