Glenn Hauser logs August 12-13, 2015

** EGYPT. 12070, Aug 13 at 0042, R. Cairo is S8 with Arabic music, and not very distorted, so that`s an improvement; but 11935 is JBA at S1-S2; 9965 is S9+ with whine and no other modulation; 9315 at 0047 is open carrier/dead air at S9+. Tarek Zeidan in Cairo has forwarded complaints about these to station and may meet with them about identifying or solving the problem; further reports wanted. Well, I`ve been logging this mess several times a week for months, so how much more do they need? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1786, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Some sporadic E continued from last report, August 12 UT:
1828 on 2, fade-in algo video, maybe Televisa-2 star bug glimpsed LR
1831 on 2, Spanish audio briefly, sounds like game show
1846 on 2, some video CCI; nothing more.
August 13: 1510 on 2, CCI briefly with some audio, language uncertain; 6m Es map shows center of activity over southern Illinois, so maybe Ontario, but those maps often miss Mexican openings even into TV band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Aug 13 at 1506-1510.4 UT, dead air from KOSU instead of `On Point`. These lapses happen far too often. Their automation / computer programming too unreliable, and need human to oversee it constantly (in which case who needs the automation, anyway?) (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 105.7, Aug 13 at 1458-1500 UT, I`m monitoring KRDR Alva for any ID during ESPN programming; seems ESPN allows about 10 seconds around 1459:30 for local IDs, but just silence, no WMBH mentioned either (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND. 7120-, Aug 13 at 1328, JBA AM carrier amid the hams, presumed R. Hargeisa, longpath trace during what should be English segment on signature off-frequency slightly to the low side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1785 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 12 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast.
WORLD OF RADIO 1786 monitoring: ready for first airing 1130 UT Thursday August 13 on WRMI 9955 â but as often, I myself sleep thru it; this time up as late at 0645 viewing a few Perseids. Next on SW:

** U S A. 6180, Aug 13 at 0040, no signal from KBUF 1030 x 6. I wonder what caused this extremely distorted harmonic to emanate before, and if they deliberately fixed it or just a fluke? Nor circa 1315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1786, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6220.0-AM, August 13 at 0041, another try for this tantalizing unID, this time definitely Mexican music, and fair signal peaking S9+20, and soon canned ID by OM as ``escucha La Ranchera, mil 300 (Ã 600??)``, then another number by a different voice, back to music, but signal drops drastically to S8 at 0043:33 or so, same music still barely audible.
6220 cannot be an harmonic of any (even) MW frequency, so that`s out. However, the signal drops circa 0045 smack of a standard sunset powerdown of a US MW station. Visually searching thru the NRC AM Log on 1300 and 1600 I don`t find a single ``La Ranchera`` slogan; nor from MÃxico in CantÃ, IRCA Log or WRTH, so dead ends there too. Maybe I didn`t hear the frequency correctly. Still suspect a pirate relay. Must start monitoring earlier than 0030 for further clues. Rechecking hfunderground.com, searching entire site, no reports this year of anything on 6220; nor at freeradiocafe.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1786, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1602 UT August 13
