Glenn Hauser logs March 6-7, 2016

** CHINA [and non]. 9455, March 7 at 1607, fast SAH, one station with music, presumably CNR1 jammer if not Firedragon, as RFA has just started a 5-hour broadcast in Mandarin via SAIPAN; WRMI BS to Cuba is also here, but can`t detect it enough to match with another WRMI frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11880, Sunday March 6 at 2132, seamless transition from scheduled French to unscheduled Esperanto, heard for the third week in a row. If you go to the Radio Havano Kubo website, click on the Esperanto flag and get to the Espo page, eventually thru MENU > INTERESAJOJ > FREKVENCO you are merely led back to the complete transmission schedule presented in Spanish at embedded pdf:
which still doesn`t know about this fourth Espo broadcast
** MEXICO. 620, March 7 at 0628, Mexican music is dominating Plano, from the SW, which is not unusual, presumably XEBU Chihuahua2; yes, soon ID mentioning Chihuahua, but can`t copy whether still called La NorteÃita. 0630 a PSA for CÃmara de Diputados â despite being voiced by a YL, she no longer calls it ``Diputadas y Diputados`` -- another policy change in nomenclature? Now there is a second SS on the frequency not so far west; probably one of the seven other XEs listed on 620 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 620, March 7 at 0646, Spanish slogan for ``el catÃlogo de --- mÃsica`` then playing classic hit in English ``I`m a Believer``. IRCA Log has three 620 stations with music in E, probably the big`un, XENK in MÃxico DF, 50/5 kW. Checking website
now I`m certain: detailed program schedule shows:
``00:00 EL CATALOGO DE ORO DE LA MUSICA DE RADIO 6.20 --- con la mÃsica de la colecciÃn que nadie se puede perder, entre los que se cuentan "Cafà Concierto", "Instrumentales de Siempre" y "Gracias por el Recuerdo". Varios dÃas en diversos horarios.``
Also watch out for `Retrospectiva 620`, slogan, or program title for Wed 20-22 local. XENK also counts upon significant newshour blox and even gospel huxters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 9775-9780-9785, March 7 at 1609, RNZI DRM Noise is S8 on the meter in AM mode, while 9700 AM is only S7-S4 by this late hour. DRM starts at 1551 except Sundays (meaning UT Sundays?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. Minor correxion: last number is -12, not -13:
17765, March 6 at 1249 also audible with RRI Letterbox, resuming after music break, S7-S9, over at 1252 and music fill is ``Angels have their own demons``. Closing reveals that 17765 is to Africa along with 15150, and lookup shows the fourth frequency, to Europe was 13580. For one biweek from March 13 until the A-16 shuffle, we in the Central zone will have access to this at a more waking hour, 7-8 am = 12-13 UT; then it will revert to 6-7 am CDT = 11-12 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 17895, March 7 at 1600, VOA [world] news is S9+10, or SINPO 45534, 1605 into `Africa News Tonight`. Too much fading, but maybe would be enough to listen to on BST-1 caradio with 2-foot antenna, besides the R75 with 100 feet I am using now. This hour only is 250 kW, 144 degrees from SMG VATICAN site, violating Separation of Church & State. No more usage of 17895 at all by Greenville, nor is any planned for A-16: in fact, no VOA at all on 17895 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1815 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday March 7 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330.345-CUSB --- but it`s JBA, so on reduced power again? At first thought it was off, as I was switched to LSB instead.
Also confirmed UT Mon March 7 at 0400 on Area 51 webcast, and at 0425 check fair on new 5130.815, which may have reduced carrier but is ``AM`` since equally audible on LSB and USB. Also confirmed UT Mon March 7 from 0430:05 on WMRI 9955, good and atop pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Next:
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, Sunday March 6 at 2252, WBCQ is S9+10 but not a VG signal during last few minutes of `Marion`s Attic`, something about Orange, NJ. From next week this Sunday 22-23 UT broadcast must shift to 21-22 UT, one real hour earlier just to keep it at the same local clock time, following the imposition of DST, which means abruptly one more hour of daylight absorption on this band, i.e. we can forget about decent reception until fall (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15650-15705, March 6 at 2124 raspy extremely distorted talk modulation spikes, which I know from experience are crap coming out of the 15825 WWCR-1 transmitter, and audible only when propagation strongifies it --- yes, on second receiver the spikes are // on S9+20 15825. Centered approx. 15685, which happens to be WWCR`s original 19mb frequency. Do not hear a match on the plus side. Also means some HF sporadic E must have broken out, a hopeful sign for eventually reaching VHF (I continue to run my analog B&W TV much of the time on channel 2, just in case, so far capturing huge mounds of snow) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 21675, March 7 at 1559, Brother Scare interrupted by a Bob Zanotti WRMI ID, 1600 more B.S., on the Radio Africa Network frequency which supposedly finishes with its own BS segment at 1400, but frequently runs over, as pointed out repeatedly by Ivo Ivanov. Is this intentional, or default program fill when something else goes missing? Previously, BS via RAN via WRMI would not be in synch with BS via WRMI direct frequencies, but now it is, e.g. precisely // 17790, 11825, 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0605 UT March 7
