Glenn Hauser logs November 10-11, 2015

** ASCENSION. 6005, Nov 11 at 0519, BBCWS `Newsday` with noticeable hum on this frequency only --- I`ve heard it before on various other channels, presumably defect of only one of their six transmitters? I`m also hearing BBC on 5875, 7445, so I compare them on two receivers ---- no synchrony despite all from Ascension: 5875 is about 1 second behind 6005; 7445 is ahead of 5875 and behind 6005. IOW, first 6005, second 7445, third 5875 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COLOMBIA. 5010.065 approx., Nov 11 at 0515, ID for La Voz de tu Conciencia immediately followed by AlcaravÃn Radio, 1530. One is a subsidiary of the other? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5040, Nov 11 at 0512, RHC in English this hour as well as 06-07; at least tonight as schedules conflict about whether 5040 is in Spanish or English at 05-06 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9535 & 9710, Nov 10 at 0632, RHC Spanish is still on past normal sign-off, both undermodulated; asleep at the switch? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005.00, Nov 11 at 0511, JBA carrier, suspecting, RNGE, Bata (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 11880, Nov 10 at 1450, fair signal in Russian, but undermodulated. HFCC reveals it`s VIRI, 500 kW, 320 degrees from Sirjan, carrying on to here, at 1420-1520 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Nov 11 at 0451 UT, KGYN Guymon is again dominant, so back on day pattern, ``From the 90`s till now, Today`s Country, 1210, KGYN`` and ``Today`s Country for Elkhart, 1210 KGYN``. That means nearby Elkhart KS, but tonight including Elkhart IN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SLOVAKIA [non]. 9955, Nov 11 at 0530, WRMI with Radio Eslovaquia Internacional, VP at S3. Sked now shows 4 daily (or almost) REI Spanish relays, at 0330, 0530, 1130, 1330, but NO English, leaving that and Slovak for other frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 6080, Nov 10 at 0630, VOA still good signal but some of that dratted Cuban pulse jamming also audible; Greenville instead of Pinheira, with `International Edition` news magazine. But I must wonder if it`s up-to-date, as BBG Watch critix have charged some of these are reruns.
6080, Nov 11 at 0630, now VOA is very poor, if that`s what I am hearing, weaker than 6005 BBC Ascension, so apparently handed this transmission back to SAO TOME. Closer US signals, however, from TN are quite degraded, on 4-5-6 MHz, while Anguilla and Cuba remain VG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1799, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1798 monitoring: Confirmed Wed Nov 11 after 1415 on WRMI 9955. Also confirmed Wed Nov 11 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490 --- now with a low audible het, from BBC Thailand, with WBCQ slightly off-frequency.

** U S A. 5085, Nov 11 at 0512, WTWW-3 with Ted delivering a commercial for C Crane, 1-800-522-5863, about a radio with a ``cadimum`` battery, back to Art Bell`s `Midnight [sic] in the Desert` where it`s 9+ pm in Nevada. Original affiliation info from M[sic]ITD indicated breaks for local commercials are just before tops and bottoms of hours. I would assume C Crane is a national advertiser on M[sic]ITD, so Ted must be overriding one of those so he can mention WTWW, for a kickback? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 780-USB, Nov 11 at 0453 UT, country music, but on 780-LSB, no country music, just WBBM without QRM, unlike on the hi side. Therefore KCEG Fountain CO is another station with suppressed LSB (but full carrier, presumably), like KHAC 880 NM. 0459-0500 UT going from bluegrass to country tune, pause but no ID at all. Does anyone know of others? Guess we always need to switch LSB/USB with any new catch. Yes, I made sure the passband tuning on the NRD-545 was neutral, and L/U`d it several times to be certain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1799, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1380, Nov 11 at 0500 UT, USA ``news``, ``Good Gospel music on WKJV Asheville and WKJW Black Mountain [1010],``, local weather, 0501 UT into gospel huxter from Idaho. Quite a surprise, as I was just experimenting with trying to pull anything past my strongest local, 1390 KCRC and here`s something in NC, 859 miles away and beyond four other 1380s in between; LSB helped as well as the east-west Wellbrook. Only later did I see other reports of this, such as in NRC-AM list:
``At 2200 CST on Tuesday night 11/10, I am hearing WKJV Asheville NC dominating a very crowded 1380 kHz. This station has a day power of 25 kw ND and a night power of 1 kw and its night pattern throws its signal away from my QTH in Madison WI. This is a new station for me. Currently the station is carrying "The Gospel Hour" with Dr. Oliver B. Green. 73 Bill Dvorak Madison WI``
Yes, night pattern is supposed to throw southeast. I assume all broadcasters on WKJV must suppress/forsake all other versions of the Bible; but I doubt King James would recognize the American gospel music of today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1380, Nov 11 just before 0502 UT as I have just IDed WKJV in Asheville NC, I catch another ID (nothing but) underneath, WLRM --- that`s in Millington TN, 2500/1000 watts U4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1570, Nov 11 at 0503 UT, I`m DXing now because a few hours ago northerners were reporting ``auroral conditions`` but not very now, not here. On the E-W antenna I am hearing CBS News in English instead of XERF, seems cutaway already at 0504 UT, and ``country music`` on WTI#. Uplooked later, the closest fuzzy call to this is WYTI, Rocky Mount VA, 2500/220 watts U1, format C&W; but not CBS per NRC AM Log --- that may well have been a different station. Geo area fits as I just got NC and TN on 1380.
I do a quick eyeball scan of the Log`s 1570 listings, and believe it or not, of the 60 stations, find only one C for CBS, WPTW, Piqua OH, 250/250 watts U1. But news net affiliations are too subject to outdating, and it`s easy to miss a hit with the eyeballs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1220, Nov 11 at 1353 UT, ad for something on ``Hiway 95 in Athens``, soon fade-out, long past sunrise here. This should be easy to pinpoint, but not: first of all, there are no 1220s axually in any community of license called Athens. The Wikipedia entry for Athens (Greece) has a handy list of ``Other locations named after Athens`` in the USA, some being townships, including AL, AR, GA, IL, IN, KY, LA, KS, MI, MN, MS, OH, TX, WI (skipping some too far east or west). I`ve looked up most of those on atlas maps and so far haven`t found any hwy 95, US or state, in their vicinities. Ideas? Perhaps I will keep searching more minutely. No idea of the direxion on this one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4590, Nov 11 at 0509, I am deliberately looking for another WWCR minus WNQM spur now that the WWCR-4 transmitter is on 5890 instead of 7520 after 0300. I do detect a JBA carrier, but beneath a heavy ute blob and some CODAR. No way to ID anything unless that abates. 1300 kHz up, the fundamental 5890 is suffering from a dropping MUF, only poor at S8 with BS. 5890 is currently on air 03-13 UT Tue-Fri, 03-12 UT Sat, 05-12 UT Sun, 04-13 UT Mon --- mostly BS but some other g.h.`s before him in evenings. The WNQM relay of WMDB 880, La Ranchera, may not run all night, but you can`t tell from the WNQM website. Other #4 frequency is 9980 in the daytime, so look for parasite on 8680 when it is on, and maybe 11280 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 18000-SSB, Nov 10 at 1455, weak 2-way, perhaps Spanish, demodulated by the FRG-7 MHz birdie; could be aeronautical, what this band is for (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0550 UT November 12
