Glenn Hauser logs April 1-2, 2016

** BELARUS. 11730, April 2 at 2051 check, still no signal from R. Belarus, on its second day of death; (11735 Zanzibar is already off too) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11760, April 2 at 2051, open carrier/dead air from RHC, prior to a 2100 broadcast; and 11670 is not on. 13740 is also OC/DA at 2054, and by 2120 is just-barely-modulated in Spanish unlike loud // 11760. 11880 is off at 2115 check.
April 10 is the projected date for RHC to energize tardy A-16 schedule, few changes, but new 15140 for North America will be bad news for OMAN. From Arnie via Wolfgang BÃschel, 15140 will be 100 kW, 340 degrees to ``Chicago``, 1800 Arabic!, 1830 Creole!, 1900 English, 2000-2030 French; ex-11670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, April 2 at 1255, the KBS IS is S4, poor with flutter, prior to English hour for North America, so a little progress in audiblizing itself tnx to summer oncoming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, April 1 at 2050, today`s signal is better at S4, and there`s Mideast vocal music, so that rules out Radio Biafra or Brother Scare, rules in Denge Kurdistanye. Another song at 2057 until cut off at 2100:15*.
Then, much like yesterday, stronger 11600 carrier comes on at *2101:54, at S8 level, off, and on and off to stay again in less than a biminute at 2103:36*. Could that be BULGARIA trying and failing to start something else? Still off at 2109 check.
Meanwhile, Ivo Ivanov has updated me on the D.K. site schedule:
``A-16 of Denge Kurdistan by transmitters
0300-0500 on 11600 ISS 250 kW / 090 deg to WeAs Kurdish
0500-1300 on 11600 KCH 300 kW / 116 deg to WeAs Kurdish
1300-1700 on 11600 SCB 100 kW / 090 deg to WeAs Kurdish + 2nd harmonic 23200
1700-2100 on 11600 KCH 300 kW / 116 deg to WeAs Kurdish``
So it is PRIDNESTROVYE both until 2100 and before 1300 as I had suspected. (And not France at 17-19 as he previously guessed.) But all this D.K. on 11600 pushes out Brother HyStairical who has countless other outlets, and Radio Biafra, which had been 20-23 UT (sometimes) via BULGARIA in B-15. So is Biafra completely off now or somewhere else? Nothing heard now on Ivo`s suggested replacements, 11590 or 12075. On April 2, Ivo says: ``NO MORE R. Biafra via SPL Secretbrod from 2100 on 11600 SCB 100 kW / 195 deg to WeAf after close of Denge Kurdistan`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 11870, April 1 at 2052, today I check the 2030 English broadcast, and amid the DRM noise from 11865 to 11875 I do detect an AM carrier on 11870 and trace of modulation; as RRI is QRMing itself from its two sites, one in DRM and one in AM both toward western Europe and North America! Fortunately, // 13650-AM is clear at S8-S9, caught at sign-off 2055, goodbye. I would like to hear a frequency announcement about the 2030 and whether the announcer does a double-take at 11870 and 11870 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1819 monitoring: confirmed Friday April 1 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, barely audible; and 2130.5 on WRMI 13695, very good. Also confirmed Friday April 1 at 2335 on WBCQ, 9329.962, very poor. Also confirmed Saturday April 2 at summer-shifted time of 0630 UT on Hamburger Lokalradio, and still on 6190, per Nino Marabello, Treviso, Italy. Next:

** U S A. 7489.915-AM, Friday April 1 at 2122, WBCQ with `Behaviour Night`, poor at S8 vs noise level, as customary for DST season, but its nostalgic music improves gradually for rest of hour as the sun declines. The frequency also varies slightly as I remeasure it on the R-75: 2130 on 7489.935, 2148 on 7489.908. By 2333 during `Fred Flintstone` it`s on 7489.888; UT Sat April 2 after 0000, new start time for `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, on 7489.923, and way out of synch on // 5129.735-AM. Some notes of Allan`s comments:
Electricity rates in Maine will go up 8.5% this summer, not because of any improvements, but because they can. He`s been working on a generator building, to be finished this summer. Has a big Diesel generator for it, but only for backup. Will also put a 120-year-old steam engine there, which will burn anything, wood or coal, and a small back-up transmitter for it to run. Still going past 0100, and this time 5129.735 does not switch to other programming, while BS will just have to wait to resume on 7489.923 as he does other nights at 0100.
Two new programs to note: Thursdays at 8 pm EDT on 7490 [UT Fridays 0000], `--something--- Madness` with J.J. And a `Smart Money Guy` [is that the title?] for 15 minutes Fridays at 7:45 pm EDT [2345 UT] on 5130, just before AWWW.
Also mentions Channel 292 in Germany on ex-DW frequency 6070, similar to WBCQ, free-speech putting on all kinds of programs, including already a couple of WBCQ shows, Broad Spectrum Radio and From the Isle of Music. Hints of some kind of collaboration between the stations.
Allan says this show next week will be hosted by someone else, TimTron, Tom, or Larry? And he will be leaving Florida in about 3 weeks, back to Maine for the summer, and a hamfest in New Hampshire at end of April.
Finished at 0125, back to BS on 7490, while 5130 continues with some expletives and novelty music for a while. Also checked 9330 and found it to be off after 0100, so is `Word of Deliverance` canceled? Had been 7 days a week at 01-02 per online schedule, which still shows WOR at wrong time, 0200 daily instead of 2330/2230! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1655 UT April 2
