Glenn Hauser logs April 30-May 1, 2016

** CHINA [non]. 7210.00-AM, April 30 at 2327 checking a tip of something unusual here, maybe a pirate? It sounds very poor, but registers S9+10 vs storm noise level of S8 on a nearby open frequency. 2328 sounds like gospel rock, 2330 announcement maybe Spanish, then intonation sounds like English, 2332 another song. 2356 still a rock song, off between 2357 and 2358* leaving nothing but SSB hams around 7210. I must assume this is CRI Spanish as listed via Albania at 22-24, despite the unexpected programming style. Could have checked //s had I known in time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9964.98v, April 30 at 2349, R. Cairo almost on frequency, but wobbling slightly, 2351 it`s JBM with YL in English, and a lite whine.
12005.05, May 1 at 0011, horrible distorted loud modulation centered here, apparently Arabic, got to be Cairo. Yes, HFCC shows 2215-0045 in Portuguese/Arabic, 250 kW, 241 degrees from Abis. Also shown on 12070 but nothing there. Also shown as // 13820 from the other site, not checked. Good thing this is done before 0100 when Vietnam starts its North American service via Woofferton on 12005 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, April 30 at *2358:55 carrier on from Nauen, just in time for The Mighty KBC to reactivate its summer frequency ex-6040 from the very first seconds of May 1. Modulation from 0000 with brief sign-on, highly produced rock DJ other than Uncle Eric during this hour, lotsa jingles, asks for reports to It`s S9+15 here, or SINPO 55434. 0002, ``9925, 125,000 watts of songs, all-American rock``.
0021 insert by a fan prompting financial support for KBC and plugging his own blog This appears to be another anonymous one, tho I think he said his name is Ted, and he`s advertising on KBC; he has a thing for weather fax DXing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.00-USB, April 30 at 2335, rap music peaking S9. 2356 recheck it`s off. Several logs here say it was WJD Radio Indiana,,27896.0.html
especially the one from RainBrandy in Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1823 monitoring: I`d rather not be awake at 1:30+ am local, but since I am on Sat April 30, it`s a good chance to find out if I can hear or at least detect WOR via 1 kW Hamburger Lokalradio, on 6190. At 0634 tune-in, there is a JBA carrier! Measured on 6190.013. Perhaps someone can confirm whether that match HLR as heard in Europe.
However, BBCWS English via South Africa is also scheduled on 6190 at this time, 100 kW at 0 degrees/or non-direxional. It`s certainly capable of being even more than 13 Hz off-frequency. (BTW, Aoki still doesn`t show GÃhren on 6190, but outdated winter usage of 7265 at 07-09, even tho switched to 6190 before B-season was over).
How about comparative sunrise times? has lots of places in Germany, but not GÃhren, and not even Nauen! Let`s settle for Rostock as an approximation: 0335 UT. That`s three hours before I am hearing this. Likewise with Meyerton: > Johannesburg as an approximation, where sunrise was 0432 UT. Still a stretch, but with power and darkness path advantage, will have to go with Jo`burg as likely for this. Abed, I`m not messing with the computer to try UTwente at 0630.
But I`m up for the next broadcast, which was missing last week. Now at 1451 check Sat April 30, 7265-USB does provide WOR via UTwente SDR, completely readable R5, and no QRM, but not enough to overcome all the noise level. Goes off at 1500, and still no CRI CCI to be heard, that long before sunset in Europe.
WOR 1823 also confirmed Sat April 30 at 2240 on WBCQ 9330.00-CUSB, as on Sats only it plays an hour earlier, from 2230. Next:
Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 0830 Unique Radio 3210 NSW low-power
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE

Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
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. 7490.0-AM, April 30 at 2342, J. P. on `Shortwave Saturday Night` is advising a caller about antennas. Seems WBCQ frequencies have been adjusted, maybe only a few Hz off 7490 instead of 7489.9, and 9330-CUSB with WOR an hour earlier was spot-on; for now. I think 5130 was still lo but didn`t measure it in the noise, and nothing from 3250 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6915, April 30 at 2356, WRMI BS is still missing from this frequency, which had been 24 hours for a couple months.
15560, May 1 at 0016 in routine bandscan, here`s Brother HyStairical on a new frequency, and it`s synchro with WRMI 5765. So #5 transmitter on 285 degree azimuth must have been moved from 6915 to 15560, but 24 hours, or not? WRMI skedgrid still shows 6915 24 hours. 15560 already has several other stations on it during the day, including KSDA but no CONUS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6060-, April 30 at 2332, JBA carrier off-frequency to lo side. I`m checking for the publicized extended broadcast of the 10 kW Radio Revival, Sala, Sweden, transmitter, nominally until 2400 with ``Radio Sala Cruisin` Special``. The last few minutes would be about our only chance way out here, still more than a sesquihour before our sunset at 0119 UT. At 2353 I measure the frequency as 6059.79. Can someone further east confirm such an offset? RHC is scheduled to start 6060 at 0000, and by 0002 UT May 1 it is on, but I can still hear a slight het from the understation. Chengdu, China is supposedly on here during this entire span with 50 kW northwards; and then there`s SRDA Curitiba, Brasil, nominal 6060 and sure to be slightly off, if it`s on. This year`s DSWCI DBS indicates it is active, 24 hours, reported as recently as March, but doesn`t bother with precision frequencies. Carlos GonÃalves, Portugal, had SRDA April 9 at 2251 on 6059.9, with QRM from China. I`m afraid I also more likely had SRDA than Sala. No carrier at all audible on Sala`s other frequency, 5 kW 3975 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 0300 UT May 1
