Glenn Hauser logs August 5-6, 2015

** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815, Aug 6 at 0518, crackling spurs from 11780 RNA/RNB, the latter overcoming R. Brasil Central, which ought to be raising a stink about this, Goiás state government vs the Feds (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. 7385, August 5 at 1329, Firegragon! musical jamming, fair signal mixed with Chinese, // 11785 at 1341 which is probably CNR1 jamming rather than the targets
13920, August 5 at 1355, CNR1 jammer, poor; no others found OOB 12-19 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [non]. 1520, August 6 at 1233 UT, CRI English mixing with Radio Oklahoma Network via KOKC OKC; almost zero-beat. CRI relay being KYND Cypress TX (near Houston), 25 kW daytimer mostly aimed eastward but not protecting KOKC, so always a problem here around SR/SS, worsened by KOKC`s QRP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND [non]. 11725, August 6 at 0517, no signal from RNZI: must be another Thursday maintenance break. R. Australia is the SSOB on both 15240, 17840-with squeal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3275 & 3365, August 6 at 1207, JBA carriers matching NBC station activity; and another about 3229 from who knows what (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Aug 6 at 1158, strident preacher with closing devotional on SIBC, which is totally Christian, violating Separation of Church and State; 1200 YL with SIBC sign-off mentioning one MW and two SW frequencies; 1201 NA; 1202 switch to rock music, but cut off the air in less than a minute by 1203*. I suppose that was a bit of Wantok FM, which they occasionally keep relaying all-night, but not lately. All the while with lots of splash from 5025 R. Rebelde, Cuba, especially during music. That is only going to worsen into fall and winter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH AFRICA. 7285, Aug 6 at 0522, all-English interview by R. Sonder Grense YL, with a diplomat, who turns out to be the ambassador from Japan, on the Hiroshima 70th anniversary; guess there aren`t too many Afrikaans-speaking Japanese; 0526 back to Afrikaans, fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1784 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 5 at 1315 on WRMI 9955, sufficient, no jamming. NOT confirmed Wed Aug 5 at 2100 on WBCQ: webcast down and no carrier detectable on 7490 by 2125; total power failure? However, 7490 is back on by 2300 for `The Next Chapter`, one of the more unusual and thought-provoking shows on SW.
WORLD OF RADIO 1785 monitoring: confirmed first SW broadcast, 1130 Thursday August 6 on WRMI 9955, sufficient at 1153 with no jamming. Next:
2100 UT Thursday WRMI 7570
2130 UT Friday WRMI 15770
2130 UT Friday WRMI 7570
2330 UT Friday WRMI 5850 [NEW]

1315 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
1430 UT Wednesday HLR 7265-CUSB
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
Note the NEW time for WOR, Friday at 2330 on 5850. Contrary to Ivo who says 355 degrees, based on HFCC? per WRMI website, this is on 315 degree antenna, i.e. due northwest across North America. Altho Okeechobee sunset is currently not until a few minutes after 0000 UT, I could hear 5850 poorly August 5 at 2300 check with preacher; while I couldn`t hear 5950 at same time toward Cuba which is carrying the new AWR program, but maybe masked by local device blob (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5830, August 6 at 0528, as I tune across WTWW-1, Pastor Pete Peters thinks he`s on 5070, since as a dead person, he can`t know that he would move from WWCR to WTWW long after this was recorded (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1190, August 5 at 0600 UT, KQQZ DeSoto MO daytimer is again running at night with presumed 10 kW aimed to the southwest. Apparently station owner thinx it`s more important to keep attacking the ``corrupt`` Democratic political establishment in St. Clair county IL (Belleville, etc.) than to obey federal rules. Bob Romanik, ``The Grim Reaper of Radio`` is closing his ``radical`` rantshow with thunder SFX, calling his political enemies SOBs, bastards. 0604 UT ``They`re coming to take me away, ha ha``; Jekyll/Hyde ID as First Amendment Radio/Killer Kountry, and into C&W music.
St Louis` alternative newspaper, The Riverfront Times, has run some articles on Romanik, quite a character, such as this one from a triyear ago:
It seems as an ex-con, convicted felon, he can`t own radio stations so technically members of his family own them.
1190, August 6 at 0534 UT, KQQZ daytimer is still running illegally in the nightmiddle, adstring including, motorcycles, Autozone for batteries, back to Bob Romanik, Grim Reaper of Radio, who is well experienced in law-breaking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1785, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1460, August 6 at 1239 UT, Fort Worth ads with 817 area code, i.e. KCLE Burleson TX, addresses in Cleburne, ESPN for the market; with 11 kW still at SRS an hour after sunrise, no problem overcoming my nearest 1460 on groundwave, 500-watt KZUE El Reno OK, Spanish; in fact nothing at all heard from it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1510, Aug 6 at 1236 UT, solo YL hymn loops ENE/WSW, with CCI soon losing out to ESPN from KCTE Independence MO. Most likely REL format is KMRF Marshfield MO, 5 kW daytimer, St Louis market; or maybe 250-watt daytimer KCTX Childress TX which per last year`s NRC AM Log is partly religious (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4845, Aug 6 at 1204, JBA carrier, much weaker than 4835 Australia, now that WWCR has signed off 4840. NO broadcasters except Brasil are listed on 4845, certainly not at this hour; maybe an Asian --- Indians can be off-frequency unpredictably. Or a ute --- Note: short for ``utility`` and should not be capitalized as it is not an initialism! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1520 UT August 6
