Glenn Hauser logs January 7-8, 2016

** BRAZIL. 11855.02, Jan 8 at 0557, R. Aparecida edging ever-closer to its nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9964.55, Jan 8 at 0113, R. Cairo Arabic service is open carrier/dead air, slight whine unlike 9420 Greece. At least it`s 1 kHz closer to 9965 than last check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, Jan 7 at 2230, oh oh, the multi-tone whine is back from Voice of Greece --- this had been on 9935 until that transmitter crashed a few months ago; now they`ve brought it back on the other frequency. No program modulation at all audible now. Recheck at 0112 Jan 8, still whining, but now some talk modulation is audible underneath. Another check at 0610 Jan 8, still whining at S4. Does this mean the funxional 9420 Avlis transmitter which had been on the air increasingly sporadically, is now completely out of commission? What`t the point of running the very defective whining transmitter at all? Can`t ERT turn on a radio and hear what it sounds like??? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 770, Jan 8 at 1358, historical item in Spanish about the 1930s, 1400 Radio FÃrmula ID, so XEACH Monterrey NL. This late, after sunrise I would have expected something further west, like XEREV Los Mochis, but obviously not top-40. Only this now, no KKOB NM, which doesn`t hit day pattern on 770 until 1415 UT in January (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 94.3, Jan 7 at 2044 UT, KLGB-LP Enid is off again, allowing thru a weak talking gospel huxter, presumably 100 kW Bott KVCW Kingman KS near Wichita. No excuse for this now such as widespread power outages, nor even the recent ``swarm`` of 4+ fracking earthquakes in this area (which I did not even feel).
Still no KLGB-LP Jan 8 at 1626 check. Now it is truly 0.0/0.0 kW H&V as listed in the WTFDA DB --- but it could still be on with exciter power or less, as we discovered before by driving right up to the tower on North Van Buren. Its co-station on same tower, KVBN 99.9, continues unabated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11600, the JBA carrier I had before Biafra at 2000 via BULGARIA, Ivo Ivanov says, was indeed Secretbrod, carrying Brother HyStairical during the 19 UT hour, and earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, Jan 8 at 0114:13, SLBC carrier cuts on, increasing the total signal very slightly over the Chinese remnant already on 11905, but still very weak, JBA at S2. Music prÃlude starts about 0114:47.5, mis-timesignal at 0115:10.5. This is usually around 0115:18, but sometimes around 0115:10, and never at 0115:00 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6080, Jan 8 at 0618, VOA Greenville already on with open carrier at S9+30, atop persistent spurious Cuban pulse jamming, and traces of talk, presumably VOA SÃo Tomà as scheduled. Pending site swaps, VOA doesn`t always do the warmup on another frequency, but should in this case. GB takes over at 0630 modulating `International Edition` on weekdays, after which on previous logs I haven`t detected any ST underneath, which presumably goes off then, instead of originally scheduled 0700*, but why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1807 monitoring: confirmed Thursday January 7 at 2100 on WRMI 7570, good. Also confirmed UT Friday Jan 8 at 0200 on WBCQ ~9329.98-CUSB, which is only S3-4. Look for this timing to build up as we get closer to spring. Next:

Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1415.6 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
** U S A. 5109.7-CUSB, UT Friday Jan 8 at 0128, WBCQ, talking about God and Ethix, only poor-fair at S8, wrapping up contact info for or at 0131, street address of Joy Mennonite Church in NE Oklahoma City.
0132 seguà to his other show, ``shortwave radio version of Broad Spectrum Radio``, James Branum says it`s about music, his hobbies, on 5110 and streaming. Says this edition is for January 6, 2015 on WBCQ (so does he think this is still airing on Wednesday instead of Thursday nights??). First time I`ve had a chance to listen to this DX(?) program, and pleased to hear him say it`s inspired by Glenn Hauser! This time it`s about what he has heard during December, in different categories of SW, ham, broadcasts, etc. He`s used both his own receiver and remotes.
Refers to reports in his blog, but I can`t copy the URL. Reception is not 100% clear, with low signal, noise and his conversational tone. 0142 brief interruption by ``running water`` ute QRM. Mentions lots of SW stations heard, but without numerical details such as times and frequencies. I wonder which station he heard in Iceland, which has no SWBC. Has been a ham for two months, works thru Edmond Amateur Radio Society 2m repeater; also mentions HH90IARU, Haiti, so I suppose that was on HF. Then LW logs from Europe via UTwente. By 0150 it`s mostly unreadable at S5-7. 0159 mentions that Broad Spectrum Radio is on Facebook.
So James has extended his SW programming via WBCQ into 2016y. I find this archive of BSR,
and this was only the third episode:

9330-CUSB, Jan 8 at 0138 a quick check of another WBCQ frequency finds only S1-S2, but thanks to Terry Blalock`s screaming we can tell it`s on, prior to WOR at 0200, when the signal had improved slightly.
7490-AM, Jan 8 at 0145, quick check of the other WBCQ frequency finds an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback as he has Scott Becker on the phone about his big family restaurant in Kansas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3215, Jan 8 at 0117, WWRB`s Dave Frantz in a rant about ``crap-houses`` in New Jersey, how ``Obama-care can work for them`` (? Did not follow this line of ``reasoning`` from the outset). Suggests people avoiding the heavy hand of government should live in RVs and be able to move to another state, such as the few without state income tax (like Tennessee) at a moment`s notice; or in tiny-houses, off the grid. 0121 he says that was a playback and now he`s on live. Continuous hum on this frequency. Not sure this is a formal program, rather than Dave just turning on his transmitter and having at it during unsold time. Others have noted this around 0100 UT, and sometimes he`s still going after the frequency change at 0200 to 3195 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Jan 8 at 0128, open carrier/dead air from WTWW-2; ho hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM [and non]. 11850, Jan 8 at 1411, talk in Vietnamese at S9+10, with whoop-whoop siren jamming weakly audible underneath, since it`s Radio Free Asia via SAIPAN during this hour, and Vietnam still proves itself NOT Free. Coincidentally(?) Vatican via Philippines is also in Vietnamese on 11850 during previous hour. Do the Viet Cong jam that too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, tune-in Jan 8 circa 1325, R. Sana`a is quite weak, but by 1335 building up to good level as usual. Mostly music after 1400, at 1428 interrupted by yelling as if recording of a raid (remember Saudi Arabia is taking military axion inside Yemen); familiar triumphal music we hear every day during this hour, but today the interruption for Maghrib sunset call to prayer starts at 1448:35, which is 79.5 seconds later than yesterday at 1447:15.5. 1500 switch to YL talk in Arabic; seems like a replay of yesterday, as she is phoning Ahmed in Aden, first attempt dropping out at 1503 with a phone bong, 1505 he`s back on line. Now it`s S9+10. During Qur`an pauses and talk, IBB KUWAIT continues to be audible underneath, starting at 1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11655, Jan 8 at 0559, something odd catches my ear, sounds like contemporary American YL pop singer, S6, brief pause circa 0600 but resumes until cutoff at 0601.5*. May have been looping but didn`t hear enough to be sure. Nothing at all is listed here anywhere near this hour, by HFCC, Aoki or EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
