Glenn Hauser logs October 6, 2015

** ARGENTINA. 11710.535 approx., Oct 6 at 0059, RAE into accurate timesignal to 0100:00, Spanish ID; very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BONAIRE. 800, Oct 6 at 0130 UT, I am again trying to dig XEROK out of this frequency if it`s still there. KQCV 2.5/1 kW OKC dominates not only day but at night, presumably still groundwave, with a major lobe right at us from site near the southwest corner of Oklahoma county, about 72 miles.
But there is something in Spanish religion under it. Possibly XEROK, tho not its main format. Trying to null KQCV English religion on the DX-398 doesn`t help, so I compare signals on the NRD-545 with its two antennas, the ALA-330S oriented east/west, and the NVL wire oriented north/south: the understation is about the same as you would expect from a signal at some ~45 degree angle between them. Copy is tough vs the QRM, but at 0143 I make out an address announced in Spanish: P O Box 380, Miami, Florida, EEUU. (Close but no cigar to PJB`s own P O Box 388 in Kralendijk!) Then some songs/hymns.
I`m thinking it could be PJB, if not XEROK, so I check their program schedule, in AST = EDT = UT =4:
At 0130-0145 UT weekdays is `Cruzada con Luis Palau`, the very widely syndicated evangelist, but is that his address? No, own website shows postal contact goes to Guatemala City:
So I try a new Yahoo search on "P O Box 380, Miami" where, ajÃ, one of the top hits is! ---
which is a 62-page pdf I will never need to read beyond page 2 where that very address is displayed.
PJB is upgrading from 100 to 450 kW, but with XEROK out of the way, this could well still be only 100 kW, and easier to identify directly. WRTH 2015 showed Spanish all evening from 0030 to 0700, and so does its current program grid; preceded by English and followed by Portuguese. Distance: 4007 km = 2390 miles (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COLOMBIA. 5910.05 & 6010.1, Oct 6 at 0115, both HJDHs are on registering S9, but I can`t rate them better than very poor: with music and Spanish talk respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9315, Oct 6 at 0102, no signal from R. Cairo. Can`t be sure if it`s really off or MUF way down. Didn`t get around to checking for the higher three (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEWFOUNDLAND [and non]. 2598-USB, Oct 6 at 0117 UT, YL with marine weather including wind forecasts in knots; 0119 mentions Strait of Belle Isle. About S9; nothing on 2749-USB at the moment.
2749-USB, Oct 6 at 0152 UT, tune in to YL English mention of Sable Island (which is off Nova Scotia, favourite for ham DX-peditions, and used to? have a LW beacon), and immediately into YL (same?) in good French, not the English-accented version we hear sometimes on these stations, appellant ``toutes stations`` thrice or so, probably followed by ID but I can`t copy it; about S8. Best SSB sound by tuning slightly down to 2748.96; nothing on 2598-USB at the moment.
Following a previous log of these, former marine radio operator and DXer Jari Savolainin in Finland replied: ``Re: Canada coastal stations: 2015 Canadian Coast Guard facilities information of coastal stations (freqs, locations, times etc) for Canadian Atlantic, St. Lawrence, Lakes and Arctic is at:
73, Jari``
That`s a huge file covering LF, MF and VHF, but giving a rather different impression of what we`re hearing than from the Dxinfocentre.
On 2749-J3E kHz, VCS, MCTS Halifax is shown with two different ``sites`` --- Chebogue and Sambro. This is what it shows for the broadcast starting at 0140 UT from Chebogue:
``RADIOTELEPHONY: (English followed by French)
Technical marine forecasts synopsis, forecasts and wave height forecasts for marine areas 201 to 2014.
U.S. weather forecasts for Coastal Waters - Eastport to Schoodic Point, Maine and Offshore Waters - Gulf of Maine to the Hague Line.
Notices to Shipping in areas Bay of Fundy, South and West Coast Nova Scotia``
Chebogue per Wikipedia: ``a small fishing village located in Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia.`` As I previously traced to Yarmouth area based on G.C.
Sambro: ``a rural fishing community on the Chebucto Peninsula in the Halifax Regional Municipality, in Nova Scotia, Canada. Located on the Atlantic Ocean at the head of Sambro Harbour, the community is immediately west of the entrance to Halifax Harbour. Sambro is located at the end of Route 306``
Sambro broadcast follows at 0240, with both at several other times thruout the night and day. You can find other originators and sites by searching on each frequency.
On 2598-J3E kHz, VOK, MCTS Labrador via site Saint Anthony [Newfoundland] starting at 0107 UT:
Technical marine synopsis, forecasts and wave height forecasts for marine areas 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 226, 227, 228, 229, 230, 235, 237 and 238.
Ice conditions and forecast for the East Coast of Newfoundland, and the Labrador Coast, south of 54N.
Iceberg Bulletin - Newfoundland Coast and Strait of Belle Isle``
** NORTH AMERICA. [Time and date of first log of this were omitted]: 6960-USB, {0046 UT Oct 2}, S9+5 pirate music cuts to spoken comment about going online to express opinions, cut off and back to music; next check 0058 another spoken rant fragment, then hard rock; 0102 distorted hard rock, canned ID ``B-I-D Radio, Burn It Down``, and ``Thanks for listening, discovering the world, one frequency at a time, good night`` and off just before 0103*. Many other logs here, all from further east, as far as the UK:
** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, Oct 6 at 0148, immediately upon tune-in, ``B-I-D Radio, Burn It Down``, and music about S7. Have those who listen more to him found programming from this rather incendiary name truly anarchic? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 1521.0, Oct 6 at 0124, JBA het from BSKSA Duba audible against 1520.0 KOKC OKC. Distance 11437 km = 7107 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7570 & 7490-, i.a., via WRMI & WBCQ, Oct 6 at 0112, Brother Scare almost synchronized on two stations, at the moment mentioning it`s October 2, and informing us that Jesus was *not* Jewish, etc. No obvious disruptions in his SW output due to SC flooding, other than a 3-day-old playback, but that`s not unusual.
I force myself to listen a bit, as the flooding is obviously caused by BS`s apocalypticism --- will he take credit as his LD prophecy fulfilled, and/or blame sinful Americans for bringing it on? I don`t know the topo situation of his Walterboro compound, and website doesn`t say anything about current flooding. If anyone does hear him say something definite about this, please inform us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11580, UT Tue Oct 6 at 0057, WRMI 11580 is diminished to nothing but a JBA carrier, remaining so at several chex during the following hour; at 0151, I can JB tell someone is talking, at S2. I am checking out a new entry on the WRMI program grid, `Steve Weeks` at 01-02 UT Tuesday only, to discover for myself rather than asking Jeff White who or what that is. But now I do have to ask Jeff; seems like 11580 programming needs to be MUF`d downward by B-15 if not sooner.
Pending a reply from Jeff, maybe it`s this guy from a Google search:
``A truly original voice on the Kindie music scene, Steve Weeks performs with both a boisterous sense of humor and a deep sense of purpose. "Weâre supposed to be entertaining and educating kids," the Colorado-based singer-songwriter enthuses. "I am sincere about the music I write. If itâs not coming from the heart or isnât fun, I wonât write it."`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6220-, Oct 6 at 0157, ranchera music about S5 from WMDB 880 Nashville via WNQM 1300, via difference mixing product 1300 kHz below WWCR 7520 at same site, 1300 WWCR Avenue. 7520 is not blasting as usual, only about S8, so quite pleased that 6220 is still audible --- until both cut off at 0158:35* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1430, Oct 6 at 0125 UT, oldtime radio sitcom I don`t recognize, also later in the hour, dominating frequency with QRM. Suspect it`s KZQZ St Louis, but no program schedule on their website. Same time on 1190 I am getting unreasonably strong kountry? music, suspected Insane sibling station KQQZ, both of which have been suspected of cheating after sunset.
This report dispatched at 0436 UT October 6
