Hauser Update

** BIAFRA [non]. Re this log: ``11599.98, Jan 2 at 1916, VP S5 signal with traces of modulation, presumably R. Biafra via BULGARIA``
Oops, I jumped the gun as Biafra doesn`t start until 2000. Nothing is known on 11600 in the previous hour, altho BULGARIA had registered it as available starting at 1700. Something else via Secretbrod? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, Jan 6 at 0658, once again RHC is in Spanish instead of scheduled English, and so is 6165; while 6060 is still in English and so is 6100 at S9+30. Switching confusion as the broadcast day comes to an end (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. Following up this unID I reported: ``UNIDENTIFIED. 6870.0-AM, Dec 28 at 0308, very poor S7 signal with talk, 0349 a JBA carrier, presumably a pirate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``
Hi Glenn, For a few weeks I've had an UNID station on 6870, generally weak. But tonight it was much stronger, and there was a clear Radio Havana ID at 0106. There is a link to an audio recording of the ID:
Looking at the SDR recording, sign on was 0102. It is still on now (0130) but much weaker (Chris Smolinski, Black Cat Systems,
http://www.blackcatsystems.com UT Jan 2, WORLD OF RADIO 1807, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
13740, Jan 3 at 0448, RHC Spanish is S4, and nothing on 6870. 6870? Chris Smolinski in Maryland has been hearing it there occasionally, with definite RHC IDs, and we had been trying to figure out how RHC could land on 6870? Not an obvious SW mixing product, until Chris asked on Jan 2: ``Glenn, Is a sub-harmonic possible? I see 13740 is listed as in use at that time``
Yes! I told him, it happens, tho rarely. So that`s it. This transmitter is not completely suppressing 6870 before it`s internally doubled for the intended frequency, which is scheduled 2200-0500, 100 kW, 160 degrees from Bauta. Checking SDR recordings, he`s found the carrier on 6870 as early as 2149, opening at 2200 and signing off at 0459 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1807, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
Glenn, I checked the SDR recording, and 6870 signed off at 0459, so that seems to fit. I then went back further, and noticed 6870 from 2353 until 0002. Perhaps it is fading in and out (I do notice a lot of variability in the signal strength) or whatever is producing the signal is intermittent. Going even further back, I observe it from 2149 to 2316, with just a carrier until 2200, when I hear music then a SS OM (the signal is fairly weak at this time) with a Radio Habana Cuba ID (Chris Smolinski, MD, WORLD OF RADIO 1807, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
More on the 6870 business: there were other reports of it a month ago:
Hello Again Glenn, Curious if you have any possible ID for a station on 6870 AM at 0100-0430z+ in Spanish/Portuguese??? Very good signal at ~0300z with male/female and of course music but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I have heard it before & others are hearing it tonight. I just doubt it's a pirate, sounds very professional & not a pescador station because they don't have the staying power or produce anything this good sounding. Still on at 0430z Thank you (Rafman, K4RAF, Broadband: Speed, Distance, Reliability, Cost --- Pick three, Dec 5, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
Here are his and other HFU latest logs of it:
And from Free Radio Weekly: ``unidentified -- only a carrier, 6870 AM, 3 Dec 2015, 0012-0103. Saw a carrier in the waterfall and watched it for an hour. Tried USB, ECSS, and Synchro, but there was nothing other than the carrier. It was about 30 dB above the general noise (Hunsicker, PA)``
6870 was heard by many, before on Sept 9 as in DXLD 15-37, finally IDed as Radio Habana Cuba, but did anyone axually // it to known RHC frequencies?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7254.92, Jan 7 at 0800, after drumming, VON is still on and propagating with ID in English and news, poor signal. I guess it had been French before 0800. I try not to be up this late, but it was an overlong World of Radio produxion session (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 25000, Jan 6 at 2128, WWV audible at S7 level on R75 in AM mode. Short skip/sporadic E has to be in play for us to hear it so close (782 km, 486 miles city-to-city Fort Collins to Enid) and on so high a frequency: yes, 6 meter maps show MUF across central USA to 67 MHz. So I also check 25950-FM, where KOA and associated stations used to be heard, but nothing around 2157 Jan 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6080, Jan 6 at 0658, VOA with report about NOAA coral reef restoration project, over pulse jamming, outro as an editorial from the US government, off at 0700* without any ID. VG S9+30 signal, obviously still Greenville substituting for scheduled SÃo Tomà relay, but only starting at 0630 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Jan 6 at 1522, no signal from KVOH, nor at 1544. Off the air? Normally it has faded in with strong signal by this time; as it does 24 hours later Jan 7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9930, Jan 6 at 2124, WTWW-2 is open carrier/dead air instead of Dave Ramsey show; for how long?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A . 9475, Jan 7 at 1436, WTWW-1 is only S8 with PPPP, not built up to blasting daytime level, but mid-TN neighbor WWCR-4, 9980, *is* already blasting in with BS at S9+30. 9980 is allegedly 100 kW at 90 degrees directly away from us; 9475 is allegedly 100 kW at 50 degrees. These azimuths mean little when the antennas are rhombix with lots of side/back lobes, but how can there be such a disparity? WTWW running much reduced power? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1340, Jan 7 at 1413 UT, dominant signal from E/W is political talk, so not KGHM Midwest City OK, which is SSE, sports talk and closest groundwave once skywave is gone. 1415 UT phone 866-408-7660 which I thought was for the show but may have been the first of an adstring for a tax business, finally at 1421 UT for a Best Western hotel in Carthage MO, after a 1420 UT reference to a Brentwood Shopping Centre, which checks out for:
Springfield MO, KADI, which is ``The Ozarks` Big Talker``, and near enough/far enough from Carthage for such advertising to make sense. Talk host was not Glenn Beck. If their May 2015 schedule still holds,
it`s evidently a local show: ``8-11 am Brian Kilmeade and Friends``. This site has KICK all over it, apparently in homage to original calls in *1950y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1460, Jan 7 at 1359-1401 UT, EWTN/Ave Maria Radio joint programming in English, but NO local ID for KHOJ Saint Charles MO, which this has to be from the NE/SW, dominating frequency along with other St Louis area signals still in, such as rock music on 1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1640, re my log of KBJA in Sandy, Utah, remarks that it had been deleted, DKBJA, tnx to Greg Hardison for pointing out that the SS Utahn X-bander which had been deleted but remained on air is 1660 DKXOL Brigham City instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 7250, Jan 6 at 0802, Arabic with musical background, stronger than adjacent NIGERIA 7254.92. It`s VR, scheduled analog at 0745-0805 except Sundays, 100 kW at 326 degrees from SMG! That`s not to the original Arab World, but to the Arab world of NW Europe (and deep North America beyond).
15770-15775-15780, Jan 6 at 1534, DRM noise, i.e. Vatican English due east for S Asia with 125 kW, per Aoki, at 1530-1550 daily, extended to 1558 on Saturdays. This is overcoming any WRMIBS on 15770-AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Jan 6 at 1446:09, R. Sana`a interrupts programming for quasi-mandatory call to prayer at Maghrib = sunset; this is 41 seconds later than yesterday Jan 5, but 15.5 seconds *earlier* than two days ago Jan 4; so one of those was off-timed.
Semi-listening past 1500 Jan 6, when has changed as usual from mostly-music to talk, at 1503 I am hearing an echo on the words, as if making a transmitter-site change with a slight overlap, and the program feeds not synchronized. However, it could be just an artifact in the modulation produxion. No significant change in strength noted, as Bill Bingham has been finding in South African monitoring circa 1751, when it suddenly gets stronger (but not Jan 7, he says) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1807, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Jan 7 at 1440, usual music and exhortations in Arabic from R. Sana`a, 1447:15.5 cut to Maghrib sunset call to prayer, so this is 1 minute and 6.5 seconds later than yesterday Jan 6 at 1446:09. Today`s sunset in Sana`a is 1447; in Aden, 1448. BTW, these should reach 1500 UT in about two sesquiweeks.
Then more music; 1457 measures S9+10 peaking to +20 in the R75 AM wide mode. Talk portion starts as usual at 1500, YL host making phone calls to OMs; today I am paying close attention to detect any echo/overlap in program feeds as seemed to happen yesterday at 1503. None at 1503 today as she fails to make contact with a guy on the phone, 1505 gets thru to Ahmed and they talk abut Adan and Sana`a; 1509 a slight reverb on the phone line but not significant, so I quit at 1513. Recheck at 1538, signal is slightly weaker S9 peaking to S9+10; 1539 she tries to get another guy on phone line (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5961.53, Jan 6 at 0703, JBA carrier. Nothing reported in years around this frequency. I wonder if it could be R. Transmundial, Brasil, nominal 5965? WRMI, ex-5956.20 is safely on correct 5015 with BS at 0705, S9+20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1954 UT January 7
