Glenn Hauser logs November 14, 2015

** CHINA. 9230, Nov 14 at 1355, Chinese, poor, no doubt CNR1 jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9850, Nov 14 at 1348, RHC modulation is breaking up, like it does on 15370, next frequency from same transmitter. Item about an Esperanto confab in Habana, 18-22 Nov, 120+ expected to attend from Cuba and abroad; clip of RHC`s own Esperanto service, which is not something many SW stations can claim.
9820, Nov 14 at 1350, no signal from RHC here, but tuning on down, at 1353, there it is on 9535! That`s supposed to be an evening frequency. I bet it`s the same transmitter but they failed to change it to morning frequency. 9550 is not on now either, but presumably will be on at 14-15, contrary to announcements. Remember, the final B-15 changes are supposed to start Nov 15-16, e.g. 9710 replaced by 6075 evenings (Glenn Hauser,, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUAM. 15435, Sat Nov 14 at 2212, Strine-accented general talk about the ABC, Ustralia, NT service, etc. Can`t be R. Australia, nothing audible on 15415, or 17840. Sounds like something on `Wavescan` from the HFCC Conference in Brisbane; only poor signal and weakening. 2225 I can still detect Jeff White with item about QSLing Radio Mi Amigo, so it is `Wavescan`; 2229 AWR theme and ID mentioning 15435. I was not aware of this airing of WS, but now it`s in the DX/SWL/Media Programs roster. What does HFCC B-15 say? KSDA Guam at 2200-2230, in English on days 1/3/5, Sun[danese] on days 2/4/6/7. Well, that`s either incorrect, or they`ve shifted the days from correct UT days to match UT times, i.e. calling this ``day 1`` = Sunday, which it is in the target area, but if you are giving times in UT, SO MUST THE DAYS BE.
I start searching the AWR website hoping for a complete and updated WS schedule. It seems that AWR thinks the title of the program is ``DX Wavescan``, not just Wavescan. Someone please tell Jeff and Adrian!
From smtwtfs choices, the first s for Sunday is highlighted on all these as I view it on UT Saturday, labeled as AWR English / English India, and no sites given:
1030-1100 UT 17730
1530-1600 UT 15670
1600-1630 UT 15530
1600-1630 UT 11995
2200-2230 UT 15435
2330-0000 UT 15320
There has also been confusion whether the 2330 broadcast on 15320 is really UT Sat or UT Sun as it used to be. I can`t hear anything but a JBA carrier at 2332, but Wolfgang BÃschel confirms it remotely as WS on UT Saturday, as well as the 2200 broadcast. The least they could do would be to put the 2200 and 2330 broadcasts first on the list, since they occur before the others, which are undisputedly on Sundays, UT and locally.
But what about all the other WS times on WRMI, WWCR, KVOH? I`ve suggested to Jeff White that it would be very helpful if he could provide a comprehensive WS schedule by day and time order on all stations, and keep it updated (most likely to change being WRMI itself) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 9400, Nov 14 at 1354, Kurdish music with no CCI, so I wonder if FEBC has been driven off? Its other Chinese service is still audible altho not strongly, on 9430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7395 has some music on it, Nov 14 around 2335, so seems The Mighty KBC hasn`t changed frequency via GERMANY yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Nov 14 at 1951 UT, for the record, yes, KETU/KEOR Sperry/Catoosa/Tulsa is still going, nothing but regional Mexican music tocadiscos (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1560, Nov 14 at 1936 UT, in a daytime MW down-bandscan, find no signal from KEBC Del City, 1000 watts, which is normally audible here. Checked both on the NRD-545 and caradio parked. Was NBC Sports, which means I pay no attention to it anyway, and can`t recall whether it was on or not when I was within OKC a bi-day ago. NRC AM Log gives slogan as ``The Franchise 2``, which I`ve never heard either. For comparison, the next 1 kW station down the dial, 1490 KMFS Guthrie is audible as usual, altho it is closer; and 1520 KOKC sounds like less than 12.5 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 9690, Saturday Nov 14 at 1944, no signal from REE North American service, which ought to be propagating by now; others are audible, 11530 a JBA carrier; 15390 very poor and 15500 merely poor. At 2216 recheck, 9690 is definitely AWOL, while 11530 is VP, 15390 & 15500 are good. No, not heard on ex-17855 either, which is still registered in B-15 HFCC as imaginary/alternative (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 12035, Nov 14 at 1359, VOT English with `Question of the Month`: something about boxers; poor-fair, and on to music fill, still at 1411, as this is an off-week for `Letterbox` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6080, Nov 14 at 0645, ``VOA One, the hits`` says the DJ, and on with rock music instead of news; good signal, still Greenville, not Pinheira. I guess this continues to start at 0630, tho the SÃo Tomà transmission was scheduled from 0500 when I have not been looking for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Nov 14 at 0650, WTWW-2, `Midnight [sic] in the Desert` as Art Bell is replying to a caller who wonders why Art refers to ``25 time zones`` --- aren`t there only 24? Art explains there is a half-hour zone somewhere, as an addition. Well, Art, there are several half-hour zones, adding up to a lot more than 25 total. More slipshod/inaccurate info from this source, besides not knowing what ``midnight`` means (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. I am supposed to be a winner on WCLV`s `Weekend Radio` this week, having submitted a funny faux-pas from an Enid periodical, e.g. 03-04 UT on WCLV Cleveland webcast, 04-05 UT on KUCO Edmond OK webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
