Glenn Hauser logs November 1-2, 2015

** CHINA. 12430, Nov 1 at 2336, CNR1 jammer is S4-5. It`s among the countless Sound of Hope 100-watt nuisance frequencies in Aoki, requiring tying up a jammer, on a signal hardly anyone else could hear without the jamming. No other WOOB ones found now in a cursory scan.
11410, Nov 2 at 1429, CNR1 jammer, fair with heavy flutter; 1430 2-pip timesignal and ID
11070, Nov 2 at 1431, CNR1 jammer, fair with heavy flutter. No others found in the hi 7s, 8s, lo 9s, 10s, 12s, 13s, 14s, hi 15s, 16s, 17s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15370 & 15230, Nov 1 at 2342, RHC Portuguese, but not synchronized at all. Oops, 15230 is supposed to be in Spanish after 2300, with Portuguese at 2200-2300; 15370 with Portuguese at 2330-2400 only. Or was, in A-15. Now the B-15 schedule via Wolfgang Büschel, which is not to be fully implemented until Nov 15-16, shows:
Buenos Aires Ti 250 160 15230 kHz 2300-2400 UT
Río de Janeiro Be 50 135 17730 kHz 2330-2400 UT
So they`ve made the time change on 15230, but not the frequency change from 15370 to 17730 (which is still in Spanish, below). What a mess.
17730 // 13740 et al., Sunday Nov 1 at 2345, RHC Spanish still with `El Mundo de la Filatelia` stamp show. I`m waiting and waiting for `En Contacto` to start, confirming its un-DST timeshift. That finally starts at 2347:10, #43 of 2015y, and then also found on 11840, 11760, 9710, 9535, 5040. Since it started so late, the quarter-hour show runs over until 2402, but 5040 has dumped out of En Contacto already at 0001 Nov 2 for the Creole service, which on the new schedule is not supposed to start until 0100; with English at 0000. What another mess. The other frequencies stayed with E.C., followed by a music show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9964.7, Nov 1 at 2348, R. Cairo undermodulated, presumably in English service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [non]. 9675, Nov 2 at 0631, instead of RFI`s only English hour direct from France, I`m hearing CNR1 in Chinese! Aoki shows it starts too at 0600 (except Tuesday siesta), 100 kW, 37 degrees USward from Beijing 572 site. Did not notice such a problem earlier in the nascent B-15 season, but it`s bad news now. We`ll live for Tuesdays.
Updated B-15 WRMI schedule now shows RFI English relays filling time, some of them for less than the full hour! On 11580: UT Wed, Fri & Sat 0000-0100; on 15770: Mon & Tue 2100-2200; Wed 2115-2200; Thu 2130-2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH. 7220, Nov 2 at 0630, VOK IS and ID in English, fair with self-imposed grinding noise bleedover from the adjacent jammers. Aoki shows this is a 200 kW ND transmission from Kujang. There is another one at 0430, which after 0500 would collide with RRI Romanian and CRI English via Albania (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 6185, Nov 2 at 0633, open carrier/dead air, no doubt XEPPM failing to turn off the transmitter at 0600 (instead of 0500* during A-15). Too bad they don`t let the modulation run too, probably RFI Spanish relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1820, Nov 2 at 0015, very poor S3 sports talk or ballgame, matching KCRC 1390 ESPN. A local Enid external mixing product, apparently, with KGWA 960. They are 430 kHz apart, and this is 430 kHz above 1390. The two are not at the same site, but a few miles apart. I would prefer it to be another ESPN from afar, such as a 2 x 910, so I need to catch something local on 1820 from KCRC to rule that out; or some audio from KGWA on 1820. I don`t hear its own second harmonic which would be 1920 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 36, Nov 2 at 1608 UT, fog southeast of here makes KUOK-CD visible, barely on the verge of breaking up, as 36-1 with Univisión, so I hasten to check for a 36-2, and it is full-screen color bars, with audio cutting on and off, mostly off, with music, later at 1625 UT DJ chat. That`s probably from KTUZ 106.7, Tyler`s Spanish station, which I tune in for a possible match: same type of programming but never enough to // it, and if there were it would not be synchronized. I`m glad to be getting direct this 7.33 kW OKC station, confirming it`s really on the DTV air. Locals punching in 36 are just as likely, or more so, to end up on full-power RF 29 KTUZ, which also carries KUOK as ``36-1``, Univisión. Neat trick; so why bother with KUOK-CD at all? Tnx to the fog, lots of other `bad` signals on UHF (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13564-CW, Nov 2 at 1453, HIFER Part 15 beacon GNK from WI, and simultaneously on 13565-CW, even weaker HIFER Part 15 beacon K6FRC from CA, separable with BFO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1797 monitoring: confirmed after 2300 UT Sunday November 1 on WRMI 11580 (a time which is constant); 2329 fill music starting with thunder, 2330.0 legacy ex-WRUL ID, 2330.5 RUI relay, first IDing as ``Ukrainian Radio``, then ``Radio Ukraine International``.
WOR 1797 also confirmed UT Monday Nov 2 at 0402, on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB, time shifted one UT hour later; slightly overlapping UT Monday Nov 2 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, ditto. Next:
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
** U S A. 5950, Sunday Nov 1 at 2359, WRMI ID by Dino Bloise, UT Monday Nov 2 at 0000 starting Radio Mundial Adventista from and to Cuba; still no jamming. This is #14 transmitter on hi-angle antenna making for poor signal here, fair at best. The 00-01 block is first RMA, and the 0030 slot filled by alternating DX programs 7 days a week, Antena DX, Frecuencia al Dia y Wavescan (which is hard to render into Spanish). Jeff White told me this 5950 transmission is the only one besides 9955 to shift one UT hour later from today, and so it has, in keeping with DST-off in Cuba as well as USA.
9955, Mon Nov 2 at 1425, WRMI is missing from #1 frequency, which after DST unshift should be running until 1500* (including WORLD OF RADIO Weds at 1415.5). Other WRMI frequencies are on nominally, so assume this is an aberration, maybe automation not reset yet? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also FRANCE [non]
** U S A. 5109.7-CUSB, UT Monday Nov 2 at 0002, WBCQ Area 51 opening GRITS show (`Ghost Riders In The Sky`) with that theme music, but shortly into a ``live`` The Who concert from long ago. This hour has competition from another WBCQ, 7489.9, `Le Show` with Harry Shearer, as now Utimeshifted off DST (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12050, Nov 1 at 2334, WEWN Spanish VG with organ music, fill during a mass? Much stronger than 15610 WEWN English, and no third transmitter/frequency audible, checking 11550, 13830 and 5810.
12050, Nov 1 at 2355, canned QSY announcement that they are leaving 12050 & 13830 for 5810 and 11870 --- NOT! If I were running a SW station, I would have accurate canned frequency announcements available for every contingency. Later on UT Nov 2, it seems that 5810 is on but 11870 is off.
7515, Nov 2 at 0622, WEWN Spanish is on here, but nothing on 11870, while English is VP on 11520.
12050, Nov 2 at 1442, this one is still off while 11550 is on with bigsig and 15610 weaker with English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7504.7, Nov 2 at 0457, WRNO overmodulated/distorted with ID as 7505, from New Orleans, and presumably about to close down on DST unshifted span of ~02-05 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1060, Nov 2 at 0010 UT, Mexican music dominating from west, vs XERDO het evitable from south, so presumably KXPL El Paso already (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7618-SSB, approx., Nov 2 at 1436, MARS or similar, YL dictating brief message very, very slowly, and I-spelling any possibly ambiguous words, such as ``to``; the body of it: ``A reminder: it is a [acronym] violation to announce the designator of the channel on which you are currently transmitting``. She`s in contact with an OM, and both of them ``beep`` at end of transmissions so don`t have to say ``over``. Finished at 1438, the OM closed the net but couldn`t catch his or her IDs. So they can announce the designator of some other secret channel for a QSY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
