Glenn Hauser logs October 4-5, 2015

** COLOMBIA [non]. 5910, Oct 5 at 0447, no sign of HJDH QRM to NHK Japanese via FRANCE; nor anything on 6010.1, so both Alcaraván Radio and La Voz de tu Conciencia are off tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9570, Oct 5 at 1340 at tune-in, CRI English relay is distorted with carrier wobbling and modulation breakup, also putting noise out to 9560; but soon clears up, leaving only usual hum and undermodulation to mar 9570 itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUAM. 9355, Oct 5 at 1343, KTWR `new` IS is looping every dekasecond: same tune but different instrumentation than before. Ivo Ivanov says the old one still shows up on some transmissions. 1345 Korean ID and programming, as signal declines from fair to poor. This is the beginning of the Korean service, but length varies depending on day of week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 800, Oct 5 at 0453, weak Mexican music, fast SAH making low rumble with KQCV OKC nulled. Can it be XEROK, perhaps on much reduced power from 50 kW? I shan`t be satisfied until I can get a Radio Cañón ID or something else. There are really a bunch of other XEs on 800; the only one beyond XEROK being 500/250 watt XESPN in Tijuana (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 970, Oct 5 at 1233, report from the Suprema Corte de la Nación about its activities (not a mere PSA), M&W alternating brief items separate by two quick beeps (or Morse code I); 1235 full ID for Radio Madera, XESW and FM XHESW, Ciudad Madera, Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. RF channel 2, 54-60 MHz, Oct 5 at 1744 UT, my peripheral vision catches some video fading in other than cable radiation, on the analog B&W monitor I usually allow to snow much of the time by my computer station. 1746, yes, it`s weak sporadic E in the off-month of October! Video only, but can make out ad grafix definitely in Spanish via my antenna aimed SSE, almost S; 1749 tentative star bug in LR; 1751, Spanish audio fades in briefly during novela, and definitely Televisa-2 net star bug. One more brief video fade-in before 1800. Could be flagship XEW-TV in México DF itself, which AFAIK is still on 2 in analog; will it be the last to go? While more and more relays of this and all other networks around the country are having to switch to DTV on UHF, supposedly all by end of 2015. You never know whether a catch like this will be the last one ever. Zilch activity showing on both 6m ham Es maps (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1793 monitoring: confirmed Sunday Oct 4 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, sufficient. Also confirmed on Area 51 webcast, UT Monday Oct 5 at 0300, and presumably WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB; also confirmed UT Monday Oct 5 at 0330 on WRMI 9955 webcast. Next:
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
** U S A. Re Global 24`s surprise reappearance on the WRMI program grid for 11580, UT Wed at 01-02 ---
Hi Jeff, Global 24, UT Wed 01-02 on 11580?? Are they really back? Any other times I haven`t found? What programming? Their website expired, and their facebook is unused since April (Glenn to Jeff White, Oct 3, via DXLD)

Glenn: They were back for a week, but have disappeared again. I have no more information, I'm afraid. The program was Rick Steves'
travel show (Jeff, Sent from my iPhone, Oct 4, to gh via DXLD)
Jeff, For the record, which date(s)? (Glenn to Jeff, ibid.)
I think Sept 22 (Jeff White, Oct 5, ibid.) = UT Wed Sept 23
As of 1506 UT Oct 5, the WRMI program grid for 11580 still shows Global 24 at 01-02 UT Wednesday only. UT Tuesday at 01-02 there is also another new program replacing RFI: `Steve Weeks` --- who or what is that? (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Oct 5 during the 1315 UT airing of `AWR Wavescan` on WRMI, Jeff is talking with Ray Robinson at KVOH, presumably during his visit in August. Says the RCA 100 kW transmitter is bifurcated to 2 x 50 kW each, funxional on 16 and 31m. The `new` Harris originally from KTWR Guam, via [WTWW] Tennessee, had a lot of parts missing, but hope to be ready to air ``in a couple of weeks``; it`s robust and frequency-agile. Then the RCA will become a reserve, maybe run once a month.
Later Jeff quoted an item from me in April via DSWCI, about the callsign of the Airbus which had crashed in France. This deleted the point of my original comment which was: crashed planes should forever be known by their unique tail/callsign, not by the mere flight number which also applied to many other aircraft on countless other occasions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 950, Oct 5 at 0450 UT, immediately upon tune-in, ID as ``Cruisin` 950``, classic rock. Close enough to NRC AM Log-listed name for KRWZ Parker CO, ``Cruisin` Oldies`` with address in Greenwood Village. Parker is SE of Denver beyond Loop 470, while G.V. is closer in to central Denver. Originally KIMN in Denver; wonder why they officially moved to Parker? That`s near the KOA 850 transmitter site. But radio-locator shows KRWZ site is nowhere near there, really on the NE side of Denver toward Brighton; 5/5 kW U3. Night pattern has a non-deep null to the southeast, not good for us. Radio-locator shows similar day pattern centered elsewhere, just on the NW edge of Denver, so two different sites? NO, FCC AM Query shows same coördinates for both; so much for Radio-Locator accuracy of its crosshairs at least (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4790-, Oct 5 at 1252, JBA carrier with traces of music vs heavy CODAR QRM. 1300 I do perceive a timesignal about 3 seconds late. Slightly on the lo side, implying RRI Fak2 Indonesia possibly reactivated, but the TS implies CNR1 jammer, or maybe BBCWS Uzbek via Tajikistan, but which isn`t supposed to start until 1300. Oz DXers could quickly confirm whether Fak Fak is back, or even whether there is a CNR1 jammer on here now. Tried to compare with 7445, but 4790 is just too weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 1853 UT October 5
