Glenn Hauser logs November 9-10, 2015

** ALBANIA. 7470, Nov 10 at *0225, R. Tirana IS is barely audible, still here ex-7425 (and a good thing too: see VATICAN). Unlike via the NRD-545, now I`m checking on the FRG-7 and find so much overload from 7455 and other strong signals nearby that I have to ATT to LOCAL in order to dig out Albania..
In Nov BDXC-UK Communication, Alan Roe reviews R. Tirana programming and has put together a program schedule grid I`ve never seen from them direct, here transformed into plain text:
``Here is the complete programme schedule for R Tirana â note that a music break is often, but not always, heard prior to the dayâs feature block, which may then start slightly later than shown.

[Same programming at equivalent times the previous UT days to Europe from 2100 on 7465] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 1610, Nov 10 at 0140 UT, ads in Italian including one for cheeses, with 905 area code. My phone book doesn`t list it, but internet check leads right to S Ontario, Mississauga, Niagara Falls, etc., new? Getting this instead of Anguilla, i.e. CHHA Toronto, Voces Latinas. This page has a program schedule in embedded pdf format:
As before, the language I`m hearing does not match up with what is shown: Mondays at 8-9 pm ET [01-02 UT Tue], `A Drink of Water [ENG]`. They do allegedly have Italian elsewhen: `Bella Italia` at 11 pm-midnight M-F [04-05 UT Tue-Sat] and 9-10 pm Sunday [UT Mon 02-03] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 7210-LSB, Nov 10 at 0125, raucous music in Spanish is S9, jamming N1NR and his anti-Castro net. 0126 switch to different weaker music, from another CO station, also mixed with broadcast-intoned talk. Thought it might be relay of Rebelde, but not // 5025, so could be any other Cuban program. More music soon grows to same level as before. BTW, Arnie, music is prohibited on ham radio, not to mention deliberate interference. 0158 recheck, no music at the moment but probably N1NR talking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 11730, Nov 9 at 1421, IRIB IS, good with flutter, but suffering from slight IADs; 1423 brief sign-on in listed Hindi via Kamalabad, still intermittent audio dropouts during NA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Nov 10 at 0143 UT, KGYN Guymon is buried in QRM, and has been for the past several nights, implying that finally after months they have resumed proper night pattern with a null toward Philadelphia and almost toward Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, Nov 10 at 0108, two very weak carriers beating against each other as made obvious by BFO USB offtuned about 0.3 kHz below on the NRD-545; at 0109:22.5, one goes off early, but only briefly as a temporary failure. Chaski goes off for good at 0110:20.5* which is 12.5 seconds later than a binite ago, Nov 8 at 0110*08, i.e. 6.25 seconds later per; while BBCWS via UAE remains (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, Nov 10 at *0114:10.5 JBA carrier on from SLBC, 0114:49.5 music prÃlude starts; a single mis-time pip audible at 0115:09.5 before sign-on announcement (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7425.01, Nov 10 at 0154, Vatican Radio in Italian-accented Spanish about You Know Who, almost 100% readable at S9, much stronger than R. Martà audio on this leapfrog from Greenville, violating Separation of Church and State, of 7305.01 intentional Vatican relay, S9+40, over 7365 Radio Martà at S9+45 (including jamming). Bits of RM audio can also be heard underneath VR on 7305 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Nov 9 at 1303, WRMI with good signal playing big band music, presumably filler lacking R. Prague.
11580, Nov 10 at 0112, WRMI with drumming music, presumably more fill with the scheduled preacher program `Steve Weeks`, AWOL. BTW, the latest non-9955 program schedule grid now shows 11580 with identical shows every day at 0100-0200 and repeating at 0200-0300 UT too! BTW, you have to keep checking, as the ``effective date`` at the top of the page does not necessarily change from ``Nov 1`` with each modification (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9331.465 approx., CUSB, Nov 10 at 0132, WBCQ with Blalock the blaster, way off-frequency this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15610, Nov 9 at 1411, WEWN English with long-path echo. This occasionally happens when the direct short-path is weak enough but propagation the other way around is hopping. As one of my closest SWBC stations (about the same distance as WWCR), that also makes it my farthest possible --- about 39 Megameters. In rough figures, the delay is 0.127 second, i.e. 38/300. It would be interesting if one could axually measure it.
Per HFCC B-15, original azimuth for this is 335 degrees, which is close to usward but mostly skipping over as normally the case without Es enhancement or heightened F2 conditions. Come to think of it, instead of long-path minus short-path distance, considering the original beam angle, it could also be long-path plus short-path, minus short-path, i.e. the long route not coming from the opposite direxion, but from the same direxion, a little more than a full circuit of the globe, in which case the delay would be 0.133 second. Precise timing could confirm this one way or the other.
BTW, 15610 allegedly employs three different azimuths: 335 at 14-15, 40 at 15-19, and 85 degrees at 19-24. One might detect considerable changes in strength at changeover times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5050, Nov 10 at 0111, no signal from WWRB --- you never know whether this will be on or not, or for how long into the evening. 9370, VP signal still here, and I think 3185 was also on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6219.99, Nov 10 at 0152 UT, ranchera music makes S8, and soon ID as ``La Ranchera``. So the relay of WMDB 880 Nashville TN by WNQM 1300 Nashville TN is still getting shortwaved as a parasite to 7520 WWCR, 1300 kHz away from it (but nothing exceeding the noise level on matching 8820). 7520- is also very slightly on the low side while blasting at S9+55. Fortunately, on 6220, very little WWCR audio comes thru. There is intermittent ute QRM for which switching LSB/USB makes little difference. In B-15, the span on 7520 has expanded to 00-03 UT Tue-Sat only, all of which is now after 1300 supposedly cuts from 50 kW ND day to 5 kW direxional night. Just before 0300 the same #4 transmitter changes to 5890, so one might find a corresponding -1300 kHz spur on 4590 or maybe + 1300 at 7190 for the rest of the night, but so far I have not: filters might have been installed for those but never for 6220/8820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 670, Nov 10 at 0148 UT, ``Caddo Country, FM 98.9 and AM 670`` IDs, country music. Dominating WSCR Chicago unless I null this, from Glenwood AR, daytimer resuming on late and maybe to be all-night again. The name probably derives from the Caddo River in the ARea, as the Caddo Nation/Tribe HQ is in Binger OK. I`ve yet to hear them utter KHGZ, but presumably do so at hourtop legal ID time only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 770, Nov 10 at 0147 UT, mention of Sandoval County, i.e. KKOB New Mexico, and with a light reverb, again implying I am getting both transmitters, the 50 kW main one in the north valley of Albuquerque, with a null toward WABC and almost toward me; and the ND 230-watt night-only fill-in for Santa Fe. Unless, of course, they are deliberately introducing reverb for effect in the studio, but I doubt it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1630, Nov 10 at 0138 UT, YL DJ informally talking on and on about some music group, then invites calls to 358-1630 or 1630kcjj.com and also KCJJ IDs from Iowa; at the moment in ascendance over KKGM TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
