Glenn Hauser logs March 13-14, 2016

Updated as of March 13:
DX/SWL/Media Programs:
Alan Roe`s Hitlist of SW Stations:
WORLD OF RADIO schedule:
** CHINA. 17585, March 14 at 1436, CNR1 jammer, S9 with flutter, in clear with RHC off 17580; and its target inaudible, which is VOA Tibetan via Biblis, Germany during this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. Sunday March 13, checking out RHC now that Yankee-imposed DST is in vigor: at 2005, 11670 is in French, so presumably as expected, English has shifted an hour earlier to 19-20. 11880, at 2125, amid English broadcast! So at least today, the broadcast to ``Africa`` but with plenty sig back here, moved an hour earlier from 22-23, unlike last summers, when it was an hour later to 23-24. Confused, or permanent change? Certainly makes more sense for African timezones. 2136 into mailbag show, so that also does away with the secret Esperanto broadcast we have been hearing the past few Sundays at 2130.
Meanwhile at 2125, 15370 is in Spanish and 17730 is off. At 2203, 11880 is off; 15370 // 15230 on in Spanish. At 2239, 15370 // 11760 in Filatelia show, while 17730 is still in Esperanto, Sundays only from 2230 instead of French. But at 2254, 17730 is off (or inaudible??); 11760 et al. at 2255 are in final minutes of `En Contacto`, the DX program confirmed moved an hour earlier to approx. 2245 (or 2240) Sundays.
At 2341, 5040 is in English an hour earlier than before, but 11880 is still off, instead of //, having done its English at 21-22 at least today.
More messups: UT Monday March 14 at 0502 check, RHC English on 6000 and 6165 are both just barely modulated, while weaker 6060 is OK, as are stronger 6100, 5040.
17580, March 14 at 1431, this RHC frequency is off already, while 17730 // 17750 continue. Makes 17585 clear for China, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 3325, March 14 at 1142, S4 signal with JBM music, 1202 talk sounds Indonesian, so presumably RRI Palangkaraya instead of NBC Bougainville today. DST has messed up my sleep patterns, so I might as well turn on the radio if I have to be awake this early (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** UGANDA [non]. 5910, UT Monday March 14 I tune in at 0329 to find good S9+10 reception of clandestine Radio Lead Africa, via SOUTH AFRICA during its Mon/Tue/Fri 03-04 UT broadcast --- and this time, no het from Colombia, which must be off. And it`s all in English with good enunciation, easy to follow! A critic of Museveni is talking at length; at 0343 interviewer is a YL with southern US accent (or New Brunswick?), says about to open lines for callers. Guest is referred to as ``doctor`` but can`t ever catch his name. He says Uganda has 90% unemployment among youth; his economic development plans; 0351 another break, but it`s been edited out, and never mentions the phone number for callers. One caller asks if he has dual citizenship, which would make him ineligible to be elected. Implies he does have, but will not really be a problem. Another asks how Uganda went wrong compared to more democratic Kenya and Tanzania. ``Mr. Museveni is a thief, liar, dictator --- don`t compare me to him``. A few seconds after 0359* cut off air abruptly as time is up, without any ID, which is SOP for the service allegedly called Radio Lead Africa.
I strongly suspect this has been Museveni`s leading opponent in the recent ``elexion``, but isn`t he under arrest? Not sure of his latest situation. Ron Howard in California was listening to the entire broadcast from 0300 and confirms, ``Interview of Dr. Kizza Besigye (before the recently held election) with questioning by Brenda & Lawrence; completely in English; fair and very readable. Surprisingly Colombia went off the air suddenly about 0257, leaving RLAM in the clear with good signal. Eleven minute audio at
Interesting interview! Never a station ID, just non-stop interview`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1816 monitoring: confirmed Sunday March 13 at new time after 2330 UT on WBCQ 9330-v, sufficient. Now it`s Sunday-Friday at 2330, Saturday at 2230. Also confirmed UT Monday March 14 from 0304 on Area 51 webcast (tuned in at 0300 to hear overtime JL playing clip of Trump bragging about his genitals; sheesh); also confirmed at 0329 on WBCQ 5129.720. Also confirmed from 0330 on WRMI 9955, good, no jamming. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
** U S A. 9955, Sunday March 13 at 2207, WRMI is heavily jammed, why? Because `Foro Revolucionario Cubano` is now scheduled 2130-2230 instead of 2230-2330. Looks like the DentroCuban Jamming Command is right on it, or just conveniently since both Habana and Little Havana have made the DST change simultaneously, what a sign of international coÃperation! FRC is the *only* exile program Sundays on WRMI, so no other hours should be jammed at all, yeah right. The WRMI 9955 program schedule as of March 14 is still dated ``effective January 1`` tho surely there were a number of changes in February. It also still alleges Eastern time is 5 hours behind UT instead of 4.
Another show I had not noticed before, and no telling when it was inserted: `In Search of Truth-Braz`, Saturdays at 2230-2245 and Sundays at 2245-2300 on 9955 --- implying it`s in English, about Brazil. A new clandestine? Or merely religious? It still hasn`t been added to the programming roster page.
11530, March 13 at 2208, surprised to find Brother Scare on a new frequency, and // synchro with much stronger 11565 and 15440, so must be WRMI, but why? Because 11530 is about to run another test for Radio TaiwÃn Internacional relay in Spanish, as it seems they have been dissatisfied with reception in Latin America on the original schedule of 02-03 on 11920, 03-04 on 5985.
WRMI Facebook via Alan Pennington, BDXC-UK yg, says the tests are UT March 14-15-16 at 00-01 & 02-03 on 11530, reports wanted which is better. They`re not saying which transmitter and azimuth, but #2 had been in a break at 23-01, 222 degrees, so that`s likely it. Had been at 21-23 with BS on 5985, unknown whether 5985 was thus off on this occasion, and I didn`t check later for the RTI experiments, as they continue to dis English listeners in North America, whom they could easily reach via WRMI like they did for many years via WYFR.
11580, Sunday March 13 at 2341, WRMI with `radiogram` beeping. This went on for a full semi-hour? As publicized in advance on the DXLDyg, and WOR 1816, thanks to Adam Grzenia, Poland, this Digi-DX program from Ireland is being carried not only by Channel 292, 6070 in Germany, but also on WRMI 11580, Sundays March 13, 20 and 27 at 2330-2400. Per WRMI sked, the program preÃmpted is `In Christ We Live` which already has a duplicate(?) timing during the previous half-hour. But I`ve yet to see *any* other reports of this logged on 11580, even by MFSK32 enthusiasts.
9955, March 14 at 1359, I`m checking WRMI, since yesterday, day one of DST, it was music fill after 1400 instead of BS. No, today, after fill music and `Okeechobee Ocean`` ID, 1400 cut to BS. On the other hand, today after 1400, 11580 is running the fill music loop instead of BS: quena at first, 1407 `Up2 & Away`, 1410 Qur`an (to the consternation of BS? And all the other ``Christian`` clients??); 1428 *still* music fill loop on 11580. Meanwhile, I`ve noticed that 15440 is off at 1401, while BS is going on 11825, 13695, 17790 at least. By 1532 check, now 15440 is on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 4840, March 14 at 1200, WWCR is already off, so no QRM for 4835 Australia. DST/B15 and initial A16 transmitter skeds have now been posted on WWCR website, also showing that #1 changes from 6115 to 3215 an hour *earlier* at 0100 instead of 0200, altho sunsets are getting *later*, as DST programming trumps propagation. (This also means that if Dave wants to rant on WWRB, he`ll have to do it on 3195 from 0100 instead of 3215 until 0200.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9475, March 14 at 1435, and still at 1532, WTWW-1 is OFF, while `night` frequency 5830 is still ON. This late it must be another lapse in switching rather than DST confusion (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Nice to see some tropo TVDX at last, morning of March 14 circa 1445 UT, even if just from Kansas with antenna pointed toward OKC: at least ``bad`` signals on most UHF and some hi-VHF channels. The only one Good enough to break thru at first is RF 26, KSAS-TV 24-1, Fox in Wichita, accompanied by Antenna on 24-2, Comet on 24-3. Then fade down, but back up at 1620 altho not solid, and I notice at 1630 that the Comet bug in lower right also fires a brief KSAS ID in fine font below it, which I have not noticed on other Comet carriers.
Meanwhile, some OKC channels are not decoding, no doubt messed up by DX QRM, notably KSBI RF 23. But W9WI.com shows the only KS 23s are LPs in Emporia, Manhattan, Sublette. Possibly 100 kW KOZK in Springfield MO or 1000 kW KUVN in Garland TX; or one of the closer ch 23 translators in OK. More from Wichita market:
RF 31, 31-1, KDCU-DT in briefly at 1649
RF 35, 36-1, KMTW-DT at 1650
RF 45, 3-1, KSNW at 1650
RF 40, at 1649, NO signal at all from KAUT ``43`` OKC. Must be QRM here too; no bigsigs in KS, but there is a megawatt KXTX in Dallas (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, March 14 at 1211 early check since I am awake, *no* signal from Republic of Yemen Radio, ``Sana`a``. Back to sleep, and by 1432 next check, usual very good S9+10/20 signal with music. Our sunrise today: 1243; Sana`a sunset: 1513. Is this entirely due to propagation, or is there a different site in use before 1300? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
