Glenn Hauser logs May 1-2, 2016

** CUBA. 9850, Sunday May 1 at 1345, RHC is still on this frequency instead of closing at 1300, and it`s not playing `En Contacto`, but instead talking about Venezuela, Colombia; stronger than 9535, weaker than // 9710 & 9640. I expect RHC`s official fifty-fifth anniversary today will lead to more program pre-emptions.
11760, Sunday May 1 at 1501, RHC reconfirmed starting weekly Esperanto semihour with its particular theme music. Also confirmed amid Espo Sunday May 1 at 2251 still on 17730.
6060, UT Monday May 2 at 0243, RHC catches my ear with some modern classical piano music, 0244 outro as by compositora Thalia Castellanos, who is then interviewed briefly from a buzzy TV show, plugging ICR, the Revolution, and the 13 Congreso del CPC, so she is certainly politically correct; then a version in Spanish of ``Mona Lisa``. 0252 program title announced as `Formalmente Informal`, which is one of their better music shows. Also on 9710 and 5040, but modulation distortion on all of them is a drawback, only partly from selective fading (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIN DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965.25, May 2 at 0228, R. Cairo is S9, but JBM in Arabic with whine.
9315.02, May 2 at 0231, S8 signal with suptorted modulation; can`t tell if it`s English, but may well be reactivated yet useless North American service at 0200-0330, which was unfound here or anywhere during the entire B-15 season. Now both 9315 and alt 9860 are registered for English, 250 kW, 331 degrees from Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 13710, May 1 at 1328, AIR at S4-5 with music, not their IS, why not???? // 9690 at S5-8, 1329 announcement in Tibetan(?), 1330 sign-on GOS in English, 1331 formal newscast. Announces these plus third frequency 11620 which as usual is inaudible, really off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 2 at 0101, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski is slightly stronger than usual so I can detect it without turning off all the local noise sources. It`s been quite a while since I last timed its auto-cutoff, April 4 until 0104:13.5*, and now that happens at 0106:48.5*, which is 155 seconds later, and 28 days later, or averaging a slippage of 5.54 seconds per diem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11825, May 1 at 1340 tuneby, WRMI with BS talking yet again about how something significant is going to happen when Franklin Graham dies, and anti-Islam comments. IIRC, this was the same segment from Feb 6 when he had just talked about yours truly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WRMI, WWRB
** U S A. 4443.0, May 2 at 0254, JBA carrier, with CODAR swish QRM only on USB side. IDed by exact frequency alone as one of those 164-watt Florida stations in DXLD 16-16 from Terry Krueger, also on 6993, WH2XWF, ASTRA (experimental class Traveling Ionospheric Disturbance Stations) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1823 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday May 1 at 0323 on WA0RCR, MO, 1860-AM, poor signal, about 4 minutes into program so started circa 0319. Also confirmed Sunday May 1 at 2338 on WBCQ 9329.971-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday May 2 at 0034 on WRMI, 7730, S9+30, each starting on the previous half-hour. Also confirmed UT Monday May 2 at 0302:31 after some music and ID on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5129.92-AM. Also confirmed UT Monday May 2 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, poor. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
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. May 1 at 1454, no signal on 15560, which showed up last night with BS, WRMI having replaced 6915. Ivo Ivanov says 15560 finished at 1200, so if that is the night frequency, what is the new day frequency on this transmitter, as yet unencountered, with only 6915 remaining on the skedgrid?
By May 2 at 0224, 15560 is but a JBA carrier if really WRMI. 7780 at 0233 May 2 check is AWOL, but BS still on 7730, 7570; 6915 still gone, but all other WRMI frequencies checked nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3185, May 1 at 0551 check, WWRBS is off; but had been on earlier this evening. Neither it nor day frequency 9370 is on at 1325. 5050 with a g.h. is running UT Monday May 2 circa 0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9975, May 2 at 0228, KVOH is still AWOL. Anything on their website about it? No. Perhaps Ray can explain, even if he`s still in Zambia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7315, May 2 at 0235, WHRI with gospel huxter on the squealy transmitter, ``Angel 1``. Haven`t noticed it squealing when on 9605 with KBS Spanish relay at 01-02, nor 6175 with Vietnam 0300-0430, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1380, May 2 at 0259 UT, multi-station ID for stations in Houston TX area, in progress at tune-in and don`t hear this one mentioned, KRCM Shenandoah TX, obviously *still* on 22 kW day power and pattern favoring Europe as it`s dominating 1380 with no special effort to hear it other than nulling local 1390 KCRC on the DX-398. Call letters pronounced in English, including several translators mixed in with regular calls, K273AL 102.5, K245AR 95.1, KAVA, K218BJ, and many more. Then back to a gospel song in Spanish, ``LevÃntate``, ``get up, you``, as these are all Radio Aleluya (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11420-USB, May 1 at 1333, pileup of presumed Indonesian QSO pirates, some making noises other than speech, mostly here, but also something JBA on 11455.5-USB. Usually they are at evenly spaced 5-kHz channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11954.1, May 2 at 0217, JBA carrier; it ought to be a Brazilian to go along with all the other off-frequency ones audible right now, on 25m alone: 11934.8, 11925.2, 11854.9, 11764.6 --- but there are no ZYs listed on 11955.
The only thing which is listed, is VIRI Hindi via Sirjan, as originally scheduled, but it`s one of numerous transmissions which had not been confirmed as still on the air following drastic cutbacks in April (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0438 UT May 2
