Glenn Hauser logs December 3-4, 2015

Alan Roe`s HITLIST of SWBC stations:
** ETHIOPIA. Re my: UNIDENTIFIED. 7235.82 approx., Dec 3 at 1405, JBA carrier, which points to always off-frequency EBC by longpath; or does it? EiBi has it on 7236.5 at 14-15 as EBC in Arabic; 15-16 switches to V. of Democratic Alliance clandestine; 16-17 back to EBC in English. Recent report from Wolfgang BÃschel puts it a little lower, but supposedly not varying down below 7236:
``7236.372 kHz footprint narrowed - the Ethiopian station always wanders up and down 20-30 Hertz. Scheduled Radio Ethiopia in Arabic in 14-15 UT slot, from Addis Ababa-Gedja site. Noted at 1405 UT on Nov 25 (wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Nov 25)``
It seems that Ethiopia does vary below 7236, even below 7235. Wolfgang BÃschel now replies: ``re ETH surprisingly 7234.9v, a pity, just before I could MEASURE accurate ODD frequency, ETH broadcast left the air exact at scheduled 0430 UT on day=6 Fridays! The transmission was on the low side close approx. 7234.8 ... x.9 kHz. This Dec 4th 0430 UT morning. 73 wb`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [non]. 11580, UT Fri Dec 4 at 0218-0223 check, WRMI with fill music instead of RFI English relay, one tune hymnic, `Coming Together` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 700, Dec 4 at 1334 UT, some more of that rustic local music, this time by drums and flute, presumed XEETCH Etchojoa, Sonora; unlike yesterday there is CCI from something in Spanish counterclockwise, no doubt KHSE in The Metroplex TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Dec 4 at 1727 UT on caradio, incredible! Tulsa station making announcements in Spanish, YL DJ, CST timechex. Frequent non-IDs as ``11-20 La Diferente``, ``los Ãxitos estÃn aquÃ``; recheck 1854 UT ``transmitiendo desde Tulsa con 10 mil watts``, brief news headlines, local, national and international, apparently hourly at this time, sponsored by Mercado Las AmÃricas with locations in Tulsa; 1856 UT bilingual Xmas song, 1858 UT more slogans but no legal call letter ID, ``la mÃsica del pasado y del presente``. 1901 UT still no calls in next ID, just ``La Diferente 11-20``. Ditto in 2058-2103 UT recheck.
This is the station known to FCC as KETU, which for the past year or more has been on the air with NOTHING but music, never any announcements, let alone IDs of any sort, heard until today, but may have started a few days ago. It is licensed now to La Zeta 95.7, which is the same Arkansas company that runs KSEC in Bentonville AR. There may also be some inter-relation with Mercado Las AmÃricas in AR and Tulsa, which as Radio Las AmÃricas LLC is the licensee of KMUS 1380, also in Sperry. And of KLTK 1140, Centerton AR, which I also hear.
Apparently they are a bit hazy about ID requirements. What would be a fitting fine for broadcasting a year with no IDs? And still no legal IDs. The last ID we ever heard from this 1120 was ``KEOR``, which had supposedly already been replaced by KETU. It`s 10 kW day, 7 kW critical hours in deference to KMOX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. Dec 4 from 1705 UT another FM bandscan on caradio for anomalies still existing from last weekend`s ice storm:
88.3, K202BY still off (it`s been off before for months at a time; not exactly a high priority for Family Radio)
89.1, K206CA, finally back on
94.3, gospel huxter talk, probably Bott KS not local KLGB-LP which is mostly gospel music
95.7, KXLS Lahoma-Enid, has finally resumed modulation after dead air for almost a week following the ice storm. I heard that their equipment was damaged, but they certainly had power to run the transmitter for nothing
98.1, WWLS-FM is still off
98.9, KYIS is still on
99.7, still hearing Spanish only from KS, so KNAH still off?
A few more checked at 1820 UT:
90.3, KHEV Fairview, not only on but modulating now
101.9, KTST, weak
102.7, KJYO, weak
** SOMALILAND. 7120, Dec 4 at 1340, AM carrier by 1400 achieving S7 on the R75 with preamp-2 engaged, but only a trace of modulation. I`m presuming R. Hargeisa, still on at 1401 but cutting out a bit as if they are having trouble turning off the transmitter. 1404:27 morphs into CW not hand-keyed from an ham, W8- something, exactly same frequency. Now I`m wondering if he was running the carrier, key stuck down, but maybe just tuned up on Hargeisa waiting for it to quit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 15600, Dec 4 at 1411, good signal with talk in Farsi? And self-echo on talk, but seemingly not music. No, it`s VOA Kurdish via Woofferton UK during this hour. I`m still not certain it`s not long/short path echo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1802 monitoring: confirmed second SW broadcast, Thursday Dec 3 at 2100 on WRMI 7570, good. Also confirmed UT Friday Dec 4 at 0200 on WBCQ 9330-CUSB, sufficient; Friday 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair; Friday 2130.6 on WRMI 7570, good. Next:
Sat 0730 HLR 7265-CUSB to SW
Sat 1530 HLR 7265-CUSB to SW
Sat 2030v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 0415v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 0900 WRMI 5850 to NW [NEW!]
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5110v-CUSB Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
** U S A. UT Friday Dec 4 checking WBCQ Thursday evening programming on PL-880 portable, able to get sufficient signals on all three frequencies inside the Garfield County Emergency Management building:
5109.7-CUSB: at 0145 hymns, 0152 mennoniteradio.org mentioned, where you can listen to all their episodes. But still shows the latest one only as #5 of Oct 21. So this show is airing for a second week at a new time and frequency not yet publicized on the WBCQ online schedule; nor on own website, still claiming to be on 9330 at 9-10 pm ET, day of week omitted, but it had been Wed = UT Thu. Are the ones running on 5 MHz now just repeats?
At 0200, 5109.7-CUSB changes to `Just Right` as I logged one week earlier, from Canada, starting with clip of OTR drama, not sure the point of that, but then at 0201 the two co-hosts introduce. This one is on the 5110 schedule.
9330-CUSB at 0143 check is carrying the usual blasting Blalock; after buffer of WBCQ IS and ID, WOR 1802 starts promptly at 0200 UT Friday Dec 4.
7490 at 0145 Dec 4 has an anti-Obama, pro-Ted Cruz rant, by a caller? But it`s the Rabbi Spivak show. Switches to Overcomer at 0200 as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775.00, Fri Dec 4 at 1517, Xmas tune, but it`s just a break during `Frecuencia al DÃa`, via KVOH. However, there is also a big hum and suptorted modulation, altho frequency is accurate. Wiggle that patchcord? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 880-CUSB, Dec 4 at 1337 UT, sermon in Navajo, soon introducing hymn in English, `Go Tell It on the Mountain`, so KHAC Tse Bonito NM. No LSB as usual; listening in AM mode, there is quite a hum which I think is coming from this station, but it`s not for being off-frequency; still a tolerable SAH when KRVN is not nulled.
Then by 1341 UT, some Spanish QRM fades in further counterclockwise from KHAC and thus getting more QRM from KRVN NE. W&M plugging some event on 20 de diciembre; 1344 into Mexican music. Either XEV in Chihuahua or XEPNK in Los Mochis (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1000, Dec 4 at 1348 UT, ``ESPN One Thousand`` ID in passing, with KTOK OKC easily minimized, no doubt WMVP Chicago IL. Almost zero-beat; and so is KKIM NM when I hear it against KTOK. Perhaps the even-MHz stations take a little more pride in frequency accuracy? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1100, Dec 4 at 1350 UT, no sign of KNZZ Grand Junxion CO from the NW; what`s wrong? Are they really on night pattern for a change? Instead some Xmas music which seems to be a little too far CCW for Joplin, so I keep at it, maybe NM? 1354 UT funny anti-fruitcake song, which I am sure is not appreciated by Corsicanans, but I love pecans. Some more unfamiliar Xmas music so it`s more tolerable than the ones playing war-horses. 1359 UT ID as ``KKLL, 1100-AM, Joplin, Missouri``. Isn`t their legal ID supposed to mention the community of license, Webb City? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0010 UT December 5
