Glenn Hauser logs September 26-27, 2015

** CHINA [non]. 7210, Sept 26 at 2333, Radio Internacional de China fair in Spanish with `Puente de la Amistad` show or promo; via ALBANIA at 22-24. I was looking for N1NR and his anti-Castro buddies but no LSB on the frequency. They might also be bothered by the ChiCom at 14-15, when CRI is in Chinese eastward direct from Beijing site. I think their favorite net time is in the mornings before 14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11650-11690, Sept 26 at 2343, bigsig from RHC 11670 is splattering out plus/minus 20 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070.0, Sept 26 at 2345, steady S9 signal from R. Cairo during Arabic from Abis, but suptorted to just barely modulated; still so at 0012 Sept 27 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 9421.6, Sept 26 at 2329, fair carrier, presumably the off-frequency-jumping Zahedan transmitter in 7.5-hour VIRI Arabic service scheduled on 9420 until 0030; Greece is off so no het (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7395, Sept 26 at 2335, The Mighty KBC on test frequency as publicized at least a sesquiweek earlier and on WOR 1791 for 23-24 this date only. Usual fare of rock music; 2338 Uncle Eric announcement. This makes S9 to S9+20 peaks yet not a totally solid signal. Nothing on 7375 now so unclear why they would move to 7395 if expanding an hour earlier.
7375, Sept 27 at 0002, The Mighty KBC is now here on its regular 00-03 UT Sunday frequency via Nauen, GERMANY, reading S9+35, certainly stronger than 7395 was earlier, but I wasn`t listening at hourtop for the transition. Could 7395 be from quite another transmitter site? Now he can tell us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NICARAGUA. 8989-USB, Sept 26 at 2331, very poor signal again audible with the pirate preacher in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Sept 27 at 0005, scat song with piano, S9+20 good signal, 0007 Wolverine Radio ID. It was not on during a pirate-band scan a few minutes earlier. Lots more logs in this thread, showing songs with ``Girl`` in title were the theme tonight:
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Sept 26 from a few minutes before 1900 UT until 2001+ UT I am listening on headphones to KETU/KEOR Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa as accompaniment to my nap. It`s noisy with computers and TVs running around, but tolerable. Continues to be all-music, a variety of instrumental styles, and lots of songs with lyrix --- I am dozing but not deeply and think I would have come to immediately if there had ever been a spoken announcement. Someone is programming this, as it`s not just cut after cut from the same albums, no pauses either. And so it goes. All music, all the time, and they really would mean it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1270, Sat Sept 26 at 2309 I am checking KTUZ Claremore/Tulsa again, after having heard it a few days ago with a game in English, which I figured was an aberration, pre-emption of normal Spanish format. But now it is still in English with sports-talk, and running 15 seconds ahead of originator KRXO 107.7 OKC, ``The Franchise``, apparently following OSU FB game at UT Austin. I don`t care who won! At 2357 ID for KRXO/HD etc., The Franchise, not for KTUZ 1270 which possibly inserted a legal ID a bit later, but not heard. Tyler Media dominates the OKC Spanish TV & radio market, but also has English stations, and as the name implies, I think is O&O by Anglos.
1270 rechecked at 2351 UT Sept 26, now it`s Spanish, but wait --- from the south/SSE, not ESE. Game in Lubbock is at third quarter, but also talking about OSU at UT Austin. So this one has faded in from Benbrook, KFLC, 50/5 kW with address in Dallas, format Spanish talk, UnivisiÃn AmÃrica. By nulling KFLC I can still hear KTUZ in English. They are making a slow SAH circa 1 Hz, but as I start to count it a third station gets in the way. Two of them anyway make SAH of 2.5 Hz. At 2358 UT as I have rotated the PL-880 back toward KFLC, adstring in Spanish, including Aflac, Charter Spectrum; 0000 UT Sept 27 Rosetta Stone, but no ID across hourtop before back to game talk.
1270, Sept 26 at 2356, another English station fades in with Royals baseball; only can be KSCB Liberal KS per affiliate list/map at
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 93.3, Sept 26 at 2320 UT, C&W, and ``93-3 Jake FM`` ID as usual from KJKE; Artie Bigley had sent me a Radio Insight item yesterday that it had rebranded itself for Donald Trump:
``Donald Trump Takes Over Jake-FM Oklahoma City - September 25, 2015 | "Donald Trump" has taken over Tyler Media Country "93.3 Jake-FM" KJKE Newcastle/Oklahoma City. With Trump set to speak at the Oklahoma State Fair this evening, his likeness is now operating "93.3 The Donald" with the goal to "Make Radio Great â``
Fortunately, that was short-lived (with a long I, since it derives from life, not live), KJKE is marginal here, fading up and down, as despite 100 kW it`s on the far side of The Metro (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15140, Sept 27 at 0010, weak ME music poor at S3, but surely RSO running 2+ hours late on this frequency tonight, rather than on 31m (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 11795, Sept 26 at 2344, Romanian folk music, no doubt RRI during scheduled Spanish hour via Galbeni. At 0000 everything will change: to 11800, to English, to Tsiganeshti (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [and non]. 11634.9, approx., Sept 26 at 2342, slightly fluxuating LAH between at least two stations, including some Chinese language. Aoki shows the situation: RTI in Chinese at 22-24 from Tainan site, which has a way of being off-frequency to make matters worse, and Must Be Jammed by the ChiCom, presumably with CNR1. VOK/KCBS in Korean is also scheduled on 11635 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 4030-USB, UT Sunday Sept 27 at 0015, S7 signal in noise with lecture on emergency ops, without power or internet, how to prepare? Put your thinking caps on. Says he disconnects everything when not in use, transceiver from power, antenna from ATU, and has never had a lightning strike. Then quotes a message from Region 4 to all Tennessee Army MARS stations, requiring the mike-1210-alfa mode to be used instead of Olivia or MP63, at least 75b speed, more if it will work; 0020 calling for questions with ID AA4TN. I thought I had logged him before, but apparently not. Easy google to James T Faris, Kingsport TN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13564-CW, Sept 26 at 2347, finally I`ve heard again a Part 15 HIFER beacon after more than a bimonth, and the first one using the NRD-545: GNK, slowly sent over and over, and JBA vs the ISM hash, CODAR and a rapid pulsing noise, some of which may be local.
GNK is in Madison WI, run by KC9GNK at 10 wpm per
and he has another one on 1704.30 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12110, Sept 26 at 2346, S3 Asian language vs CODAR but separable from 12105 WTWW using USB. It`s VOA Burmese, due west from Tinang, PHILIPPINES at 2330-2430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0251 UT September 27
