Glenn Hauser logs December 5, 2015

** BRAZIL. 9724.92, Dec 5 at 0124, JBA carrier, so Radio RB2 is sticking here so far, rather than downdrifting (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 860, Dec 5 at 0133 UT, French Canadian talk is mixing with English ballgame, presumably KKOW Kansas, and CJBC, CBC Toronto, which occasionally makes it here. CJBC is 50/50 kW U1, but there is another CBC French on 860, 10/10 kW U4, CBKF-2, Saskatoon. Its night pattern goes N/S, day pattern similar but NNE/SSE. I should have got a DF on this to be sure. Close to same distance from here: Saskatoon 1884 km/1170 mi; Toronto 1766 km/1097 mi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9964.56, Dec 5 at 0120, R. Cairo is a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Dec 5 at 0110, VP signal from algo, presumably pirate rather than 5 x 1390 local KCRC. High local noise level and very degraded propagation.
6955.00-AM, Dec 5 at 0150, my next pirate bandscan finds one signal here, a little better than 6950 had been, rock music, poor, S6 in noise level, 0157 singing ID sounds like WABC, mentions the Seventies. Lots of logs here
say it was the same station, Rush Night Oldies, but with IDs for WABC and old jingles --- difference of opinion whether playing tapes of 770 in the 70s, or a `tribute` new produxion, or a mixture (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490 & 5109.7-CUSB, UT Sat Dec 5 at 0105, I`m trying to hear WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, but propagation is awful, weak signals, combined with heightened neighborhood/line noise level. 9330 barely audible with Blalock the blaster. 9265 WINB is also JBA, but southerly 9395 and 9955 WRMI are good strength, as well as 7730 and 7570. Too bad Allan can`t transmit directly from the Land of Fla (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9975, Dec 5 at 0118, KVOH with sermon at S9+25, but very undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Dec 5 at 0155, WTWW-3 in Russian is S9! Strange propagation, while e.g. 11580 WRMI is JBA. WTWW has usually faded down or out by now on 12 MHz. Here`s why: a winter sporadic E opening across central USA is in progress, per 6m DX map, with MUF up to 65 MHz. No sign of anything on TV ch 2 or 3; I also tune across 6m band on the R75 but hear nothing but birdies, local devices; I don`t have a proper VHF antenna for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1330, Dec 5 at 0128 UT, Navajo mixture with English including phone area code 505, into ``O Come, All Ye Faithful`` in English, so don`t you believe it`s ``All Navajo, All the Time``; 0147 UT recheck more Navajo talk is atop, so it`s surely KGAK Gallup NM, which I don`t recall hearing here before. It`s 5/1 kW U2, with night pattern aiming SSE, null toward us, so believe it must be on 5 kW day pattern. Night hours in December are 0000-1415 UT. 983 km = 611 miles from here. Despite the carol, apparently KGAK is full-service rather than foisting Christianity upon the Dineh as KHAC 880 does unceasingly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1690, Dec 5 at 0142 UT, hearing that Denver is off pending sale, I try for something else besides 1690 WVON, the two close to right angles. WVON has discussion about Chicago PD, politix. Nothing much with it nulled completely, but mixing with it another station with blues music, then ad for originalmattress.com and ``AM 1690, Voice of the Arts``; 0144 UT back to program with DJ playing one last song, mentions Chuck Berry; by 0148 UT I`m hearing WVON only, but surely the otherstation would not have signed off at this oddtime. It seemed like it was close to the same direxion (or opposite) as WVON, but this unique slogan belongs to WMLB, Avondale Estates, Georgia (near Atlanta), which is 1273 km = 791 miles east of here. Not heard before due to Denver.
Per http://1690wmlb.com/programming/
The slogan is also the (default?) name of programming at various blox including evenings, start time changing from one night to the next, but there are others. The /about page says:
``AM 1690 strives to bring all the best of the art world to Atlanta radio. With an ever-growing library of music, ranging from old-timey music of the early twentieth century to the latest independent rock releases to folk songs of the 1960s to afrobeat tunes, AM 1690 has just about every musical genre, era, and taste covered. The station stands behind a belief that music holds an invaluable significance in our culture, and by blurring the boundaries set by traditional radio station labels, AM 1690 is able to expose the listener to a little bit of everything. Between the b-sides, essential classics, and under-the-radar gems, any given listen to "The Voice of the Arts" may uncover your new favorite song or provide engagement in a genre you never knew you loved.
Additionally, AM 1690 harmoniously mixes its diverse musical playlists with thought-provoking book, movie, and theater reviews and reflections, interviews with individuals from every background and with every passion, relevant news stories, and clever, creative skits. No day of programming is the same, promising a fresh, dynamic listening experience with every tune-in. Through its engaging array of musical, literary, and cultural programs, AM 1690 provides for its listeners a strong and much-needed "Voice of the Arts."
AM 1690, The Voice of the Arts âa little historyâ
JW Broadcasting owner Joe Weber began his project of giving Atlanta "The Voice of the Arts" in 1997 with 1190 AM, WGKA. Through being purchased and converted into a gospel station, and then trying out a different location at 1160 AM, "The Voice of the Arts" has found its home at AM 1690. The move up the dial allows for greater coverage of the Atlanta area, and embracing todayâs technology provides even more opportunities to keep up with the stationâs programming by downloading AM 1690âs iTunes app, following the station on Facebook and Twitter, and listening live online. Now more than ever, AM 1690 is the "Voice of the Arts" that folks in Atlanta and beyond tune in to for all that is relevant in arts and culture`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 88.9, UT Sat Dec 5 at 0300 I bring up the webcast of KUSP Santa Cruz CA, for the local classical music show, `On Site`. Host Robin Whitehouse announces that this will be the last classical music show on a week night; there had been a strip of different classical shows M-F at 7-9:30 pm PST. From Dec 13 this show will migrate to Sunday mornings 7-10 am PST [15-18 UT]. It`s exciting, he says. So that explains why another classical host, Joe Truskot, announced this week that he is leaving the station. On tonight`s finale, a classical group new to the area is featured after 0400 UT, Espressivo, ``a small, intense orchestra``; see http://espressorch.org/index.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
