Glenn Hauser logs February 6-7, 2016

** BERMUDA. 2582-USB, Feb 7 at 0036, listening for Bermuda Radio, ZBR, tnx to tips from DXLD yg members Stephen C Wood in MA who is hearing it nearly every evening at 0040, and Rich Ray near Chicago who reported it starting at 0036. At first I hear nothing, then 0037 barely audible talk, sounds like marine weather intonation, fades up a bit, but only S7, equivalent to noise level. 0039 a little better so I hear fragments such as ``through Sunday afternoon; gale warning, small craft warning, Monday evening and night``; British accent past 0042 but seems to have finished at 0043. EiBi shows ZBM as Bermuda Harbo[u]r, nominal 10-minute broadcasts at 0035, 0435, 0835, 1235, 1635. But it`s not the only marine station on 2582. Unlisted by him but in the Canadian Coast Guard page, 2582 is also used for shore-ship comms in Atlantic Canada and the North in summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6135, Feb 7 at 0106 and later chex, not even a JBA carrier from R. Santa Cruz or R. Aparecida surrounding this frequency. Both off or extremely poor S American reception (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 2749-USB, Feb 7 at 0044, robotic YL in English with marine weather at S6. CCG website shows this is MCTS Sydney NS, VCO starting at 0040 via Port Caledonia site, with: ``Radiotelephony --- Technical marine synopsis and forecasts for marine areas 209, 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 231 and 232. Wave height forecast for marine areas 209, 213, 214, 215 and 217. Notices to Shipping in areas Cape Breton Shore (covering Cabot Strait to Banquereau Bank), Gulf of St. Lawrence, Newfoundland South Coast, P.E.I. and Miramichi Bay. Notices to Shipping revising the position of every reported offshore exploration and exploitation vessel`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 890, Feb 7 at 0129, R. Progreso with Cuban historical propaganda piece, stronger than easily nulled WLS, but no // 900 audible in QRM. Outro as ``Cuba â Tierra de mis Amores``. It`s about time for their SW service, so I try 4765 for a //: open carrier at S9+40, not bad. Not until 0131:20 does modulation cut on there, as the previous MW program is ending, into an ID with music, and running about 2 seconds behind the 200-kW 890 outlet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 1040, Feb 7 at 0137, just missed a Cuban announcement, into Cuban music, hardly anything from WHO requiring nulling. This signal from the SE has some hum on it, especially evident in pauses or low passages. WRTH 2016 shows only one Cuban on 1040: CMCL, 10 kW, R. Mayabeque, GÃines, Mayabeque. That`s one of the newer provinces created in 2010 just east of Habana, between it and Matanzas, spanning coast to coast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6040, UT Sun Feb 7 at 0050, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is S9+35 for rock music into announcement, contact info in Dutch, as KBC is the #1 SW broadcaster in that language now, tho the program is mostly in English. Het from Brasil 6040.4 is barely detectable this week, almost ignorable, with southerly propagation degraded? Kraig Krist hears from Uncle Eric, who has also said it on air, that this N American service will end after B-15 unless he can get more sponsorship: Nauen transmitter time is expensive. I also suggest he could probably get a lower rate and count on more reliable reception in North America via WBCQ or WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6770-AM, Feb 7 at 0048, JBA S7 AM signal, presumably the old-time-radio pirate back on at the usual unusable level here; Larry Will in Free Radio Weekly Feb 6 observed, ``No sign of the old time radio pirate on 6770 in several days. This station had been on more or less continuously for several months. The last log on the FRN was on 25 January`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Feb 7 at 0048, weak hard rock reading only S9, much less than 6950 Wolverine. To find a 6930 log on HFU we have to go back to 2304 UT Feb 6, for XLR8, and none later than 0038:,26190.0.html
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Feb 7 at 0045, big S9+30 signal from a pirate playing torch song, Mae West? 0046 change to ``Supper-Time``; bet it`s Wolverine Radio, confirmed by IDs at 0049, 0058. Still going VG at 0142. Many more logs with playlists, SSTV views, say theme was ``time``, at:,26201.0.html
** PERU [and non]. 5980, Feb 7 at 0052, one JBA carrier, suffering from splash de 5990 CRI/Cuba music. From *0059 I now detect a second JBA carrier slightly offset causing a double-tone het with BFO, i.e. first R. Chaski, and second, BBC UAE about to start Hindi. After 0100 the ACI splash is from WRMIBS, but listening very carefully I can tell that one of the 5980 carriers, Chaski, goes away about 0105:41*, which is 58.5 seconds later than 0104:42.5* on January 29, nine nights ago, averaging 6.5 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, Feb 7 at *0114:10.5, carrier cuts on at S5 level, prÃlude right on time from 0114:46.5, 2+1 mis-timesignal ends at 0115:16, YL sign-on for SLBC. Her modulation is somewhat suptorted unlike the music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U K. 7445, Feb 7 at 0151, huge steady S9+45 signal with talk in presumed Dari as scheduled for BBC via Woofferton, 250 kW at 82 degrees. Until I looked it up, I was thinking this bigsig had to be Greenville substituting for an overseas IBB site, if a VOA service. For comparison, Romania to North America had only S9+25 signals on 7325 and 7340 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7425, Feb 7 at 0155, Greenville`s Vatican 7305/Martà 7365 leapfrog achieves S6 level with mixture of the double-Spanish audios (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1811 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday Feb 7 at 0420 about 3 minutes into program on 1860-AM, WA0RCR, Wentzville MO, good with no CW QRM this week. Missed checking the new Sat 2330 time on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB. BTW, this and the new Sun thru Sat 0030 times on 9330 have not yet been entered on
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5110v-CUSB Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
** U S A. 7490.05, Sat Feb 6 from 2230, WBCQ with James Branum`s `Broad Spectrum Radio` at its additional time, and the first week of month is about radio, his equipment, ham and otherwise, what he has been hearing past month on SW, and what makes good SW programming. This was originally to be part 2 of same subjects, but original airtime apparently was missed as WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB was off, at least inaudible, UT Friday Feb 5 at 0130, so this turned out to be the originally recorded part 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. I had forgotten there was yet another Republican debate Saturday night, originating on ABC-TV, but run across WHAS 840 Louisville KY carrying the soundtrack at 0134 UT Feb 7 --- then scan the entire MW band for some others //, not necessarily synchronized: 750 WSB Atlanta GA, 740 KRMG Tulsa OK, 700 WLW Cincinnati OH, 1110 KFAB Omaha NE, 1160 KSL Salt Lake City UT. All the other big clear channel sigs I normally get were doing something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN. 11860, Feb 7 at 0112, S2 carrier, seems open, but very weak. Possibly Radio Sana`a at a very different time than when I hear it well, 12-14 hours later. Bill Bingham in South Africa has been checking it thru his night and sometimes hears it not, so not really 24 hours? Aoki has nothing else on 11860 at this time, altho China starts at 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1500, Feb 7 at 0119 UT, not much signal from KSTP, so I am hearing the blues music station and the warble-tone. KSTP is so weak that I can get pretty good bearings on these two, nulling them without KSTP in the way: warble is about 95 degrees, and blues about 135 degrees (assuming they are both eastward rather than westward). Tends to confirm blues source as the station doing that all-night, KCLF New Roads LA. At least on weeknights, with weekends unaccounted for:
Closest to the 95 degree angle from Enid with the warble are three Alabamans and one further Georgian: WQCR Alabaster, 2300/3 watts, WVSM Rainsville, 1000/-, WKAX Russellville, 1000/-; and WDPC Dallas GA, 5000/CH 3200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0444 UT February 7
