Glenn Hauser logs February 7, 2016

** BOUGAINVILLE. 6020, Feb 7 at 1349, S9 open carrier --- at least I can`t make out any modulation, but presumably NBC. By 1407 it`s S7 to S9 and maybe a trace of modulation. However, Ron Howard in CA says it was off the air by 1327, after carrying the `Island Praise` show from Voice of PNG, 90.7 FM at 1200-1258 Sundays. He also says they did not switch to 3325; so maybe they just left the carrier on 6020 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 17580, Feb 7 at 1510, open carrier/dead air from RHC which is supposed to quit at 1500 here; still programming on 17730, and just barely modulated on 17750 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE [and non]. 15650, Feb 7 at 1512, oh oh, that awful whining sound is here, and with BFO, from multiple carriers slightly above and below 15650.0 --- just like we have been getting from ERA`s malfunxioning transmitter on 9935 or sometimes 9420. They didn`t bother to register anything with HFCC for B-15, but we know 15650 is an old Avlis frequency. Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, was also hearing this later: ``Voice of Greece Feb 7 at 1600 UT on 15650 BUZZ audio and 9420 good audio -- 73!``
Currently, in fact, 15650 is reserved ONLY for IRDR, 24 hours from SMG Vatican site, 100 kW ND. That`s the international emergency broadcasting service envisaged, which so far has never been activated, despite numerous qualifying events in the past two years and ongoing:
HFCC, Intl. Radio for Disaster Relief project. B-15 schedule is here showing 17500 and 21840 also available 24 hours:
and for lesser spans: 11995, 11840, 9430, 7400. AND, for ALL CIRAF zones 1-85! I assume SMG is merely a placeholder and if ever really in use, various more appropriate sites could be used, as several HFCC members supposedly support this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 9690, Feb 7 at 1511, JBA signal presumably REE as scheduled from 1500 on weekends only to ``North America``, reproving that they don`t know the first thing about Propagation 101. Instead, the best signal here is 15500, with very weak ones also on 15390 and 17755. 15500 is really 200 kW at 110 degrees for CIRAFs 38,39,47,48, i.e. Libya to Gabon to Kenya to Oman to Turkey, but directly off the back is 290 degrees, close enough for us. Of course, it`s all about silly ballgames on weekends, so who cares? Lots of alternatives are planned for A-16, including possibly going back to 17855 for NAm, or staying on 9690 when it would be even more useless in the summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3843-LSB, Feb 7 at 0612, ham QSOs going on, but nothing about the Burns OR situation despite promise last night to resume tonight. Possibly came on later after I quit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Sunday Feb 7 at 1416, fill music from WRMI, instead of scheduled `Living the Bible` at 1400-1430. 11580 had a gospel huxter other than TOM as scheduled for Sundays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1510, Sunday Feb 7 at 1403 UT, financial news, loops slightly CCW from E/W, so I figure it`s KFNN PhÅnix AZ; 1404 UT PSA about asthma, 1405 UT about diabetes, no ID, and 1406 UT welcome back to `Real Estate Today`. KFNN program schedule is lengthy,
and does have R.E.T. on it but Saturdays at 11 am (MST = 18 UT); and there is a big gap between 3 and 8 am on Sundays! (MST = 10-15 UT). KFNN is axually licensed to Mesa with 22000/100 watts U3, and official February sunrise is not until 1415 UT; nothing about a PSRA in the NRC AM Log, so they jumped the gun. Also, day pattern major lobe is to the NE, good for us, with lesser lobes to the WNW and SE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
