Glenn Hauser logs January 19-20, 2016

** ARGENTINA. 11710.78, Jan 20 at 0133, is my measurement tonight for RAE. Last one was 11710.838, UT Sat Jan 16 at 0305. But a few minutes later tonight, Wolfgang BÃschel reports: ``11710.793 at 0155 UT on Jan 20 heard end of RAE's Japanese`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BIAFRA [non]. 11600, Jan 19 at 2058, very poor talk at S6, presumed R. Biafra via BULGARIA â about the best I`ve had it here. I understand the signal in Europe is not very good either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 15370, Jan 19 at 2112, RHC is still running this third frequency in French, contrary to B-15 schedule: 15370 is strongest, then 11880, then 11670, but 11670 sounds louder than 11880 altho it also has CCI from All India Radio whose longtime frequency it has usurped (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, Jan 20 at 0108, YL in English with gale warning, barely audible vs noise level. Canadian Coast Guard site shows just starting at 0107 was MCTS Labrador / VOK - via St. Anthony site at the top of the Rock, 2598J3E, ``Radiotelephony --- Technical marine synopsis, forecasts and wave height forecasts for marine areas 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 226, 227, 228, 229, 230, 235, 237 and 238. Ice conditions and forecast for the East Coast of Newfoundland, and the Labrador Coast, south of 54N. Iceberg Bulletin â Newfoundland Coast and Strait of Belle Isle`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 890, Jan 19 at 2017 UT on caradio bandscan, I find that KTLR OKC is modulating two programs at once! At equal levels. One is from BizTalk network, which I wasn`t aware they carried. The second audio sometimes has pauses, like other side of phone conversation unheard, and sometimes sounds like somebody left his (produxion?) mike open + on the air with comments not intended for broadcast. Between errand stops, rechex at 2035 UT and 2044 UT find the doubletalk still emitting! No one at station listening to itself. Don`t know for how much longer.
One promo still uses slogan ``Kommunity TaLk Radio``, tho KTLR originally stands for Tyler Media, the conglomerate in OK which has bought up lots of radio and TV stations around Oklahoma City, including even KOKC & KOMA. BTW, 1520 KOKC is registering only S9 on the N-S antenna, but 890 KTLR is S9+32: lower-frequency advantage with only 1 kW ND, compared to 1520 with QRP of 10 kW ND.
Here`s the 890 program schedule showing BTR weekdays from 1 pm to sign-off (Jan: 5:45 pm CST), and various other times on weekends. Some blox mixed in are in Spanish:
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Jan 19 at 2048 UT on caradio, KETU briefly with double audio, announcements mixing, Tulsa ads, 2049 UT, ``11-20 La Diferente``. Recheck on NRD-545 at 2101 UT in time for full ID in Spanish as ``KETU, 11-20 AM, La Diferente`` also giving 10 mil watts, Tulsa, Oclajoma, ``con mÃsica del presente y del pasado``, one minute of the most important news headlines, leading, natch, with SCOTUS reviewing POTUS` immigration policy; 2102 UT music show `La Rumba``.
This belies a new(?) item: ``La Zeta 95.7 Inc. acquires 98.3 K252DT Seneca KS from First Ventures for $ 37,500. K252DT will rebroadcast Spanish Christian "Radio Victory" 1120 KETU Catoosa/Tulsa OK (Radio Insight via Shawn Axelrod VE4DX1SMA, Winnipeg MB Canada, Jan 15, NRC-AM via DXLD)``
I haven`t been able to find it on radioinsight.com and KETU has not called itself Radio Victoria, nor been religious for over a year. This may come as a surprise to the Seneca translator? Was someone reporting this relying on outdated info? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 4618-USB, Jan 20 at 0111, MARS net, name seems ``Shares(?) Northern``, with AFA7FC NCS making calls, then NNB4DW at 0112, but no answers so ``the net is free``. Then NNB4DW makes some more calls. I guess this new-style N-call is successor to defunct Navy MARS, now ``shared`` with Air Force? Calls given fonetikaly. But no hits on NNB4DW search other than for license plates! AFA7FC is Bill Glynn, state MARS director for Kansas. First searches on that lead to HTML hex colors until I add MARS.
3299-USB, Jan 20 at 0117, another AF MARS net, designated SEM1, AFF4FL calling stations in South Carolina; then a much weaker station doing the same. Then calling Tennessee, with multiple answers talking over each other, including AFA4RW who is in Tennessee. AFF4FL is FLORIDA STATE MARS DIRECTOR WILLIAM (BILL) MATZINGER (a.k.a. AFA4RA).
3390.5-USB, Jan 20 at 0120, yet another AF MARS net but too weak to copy much. Must be a favorite early-evening hour to get together (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13564-CW, Jan 19 at 2115, GNK Part 15 HIFER beacon from Madison WI is audible with continuous slow IDs, the most reliable one we hear. So far not hearing the OTR pirate on 13560 vs ISM hash (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7489.95-AM, Jan 20 at 0122, Allan Weiner reminiscing about some old radio equipment when it was hard to get; WBCQ with another unexpected `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback --- sounds familiar like one I heard last week. At 0151 with Scott Becker on the phone from Kiowa KS, inviting new business for WBCQ to his phone and e-mail address; also mentions someone involved in putting 97.5 KPAK (Alva OK) on the air.
Then they promote Art Bell about to start on WBCQ on the nineteenth. Oops, this was from last summer, 19 July, somewhat outdated! As Bell has come and gone from WBCQ even before he was gone from the other stations. Also it`s happy birthday to Allan. 01-02 UT Wed is another hour still on the 7490 schedule for Rabbi Yaakov Spivak, missing again, or is he off WBCQ completely? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6220, Jan 20 at 0059, S7 signal with Spanish intonation, 0100 music, i.e. WMDB 880 Nashville TN via WNQM 1300 and WWCR 7520 parasite (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Correxion: original ``12015`` was of course a typo! 12105, Jan 16 at 2248, S9+30 open carrier/dead air from WTWW-3, yet again, missing its extremely repetitious Bibling Worldwide.
And now another (non) log of same: 12105, Jan 19 at 2116, WTWW-3 is off, while the other two WTWWs are on: 9930 with Dave Ramsey, and 9475 with PPPP in an anti-Semitic rant: are you proud of that, Ted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1130, Jan 19 at 2104 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is off --- audiblizing some weak sports talk, presumably KWKH Shreveport LA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1521.0, Jan 20 at 0138, JBA het on KOKC 1520.0 OKC, presumably SAUDI ARABIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6131 approx., Jan 20 at 0103, shux, the TADIL-A Bonker is back intruding in the middle of the 49m exclusive SWBC band. Not too strong at moment so can separate it from Bolivia 6134.8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
