Glenn Hauser logs November 3-4, 2016

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS update overhaul for B-16 and post-DST season:
** ALBANIA. 7475, Nov 4 at 0253, R. Tirana is still nothing more than a JBA carrier during rescheduled North American service. Not enough to evaluate the modulation. Is anyone further east hearing it better? Propagation has been poor since B-16 began, but suspect Shijak is also seriously underpowered, and its antenna apparently has been damaged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ANGUILLA. 6090, Nov 4 at 0113, University Network during music fill is quite distorted // 5935 WWCR somewhat less distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476-USB, Nov 3 at 1930, 2034, still no trace of LRA36 here. Bryan Clark in New Zealand says he is getting a trace.
15476-USB, Nov 4 at 2001 & 2034 chex, still nothing, while RAE is a JBA carrier around 15345.3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 15590, Nov 4 at 1358, South Asian music, 1400 ``Goodbye for Now`` twice in English, S9, more talk and songs in non-English, despite HFCC registration as English only! from KNX, meaning Kununurra, HCA, meaning HCJB-Australia despite rebirth as Reach Beyond, Australia, at 1255-1445, 100 kW, 310 degrees daily to CIRAFs 44, 45, 50 and 54. Via the WORLD OF RADIO Hitlist
we immediately reach the RBA language schedule for B-16
which is extremely convoluted and complex, depending on day of week. Since this was Friday, at 1400, 15590 is going from Tamil to Marathi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, Nov 4 at 0554, R. Rebelde is still off, while 5040 is on with RHC English. See also PERU (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 9625, Nov 3 at 1149, Indonesian at S9, R. Japan via PALAU at 1115-1200. In HFCC this single transmission gets three entries, one from FCC, one from BaBcoCk, and one from NHK. They almost agree on the details, all due west except for designated CIRAF target areas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MADAGASCAR. 17570, Nov 4 at 1959, open carrier S8-S9 comes to life at 2000 in African language but mentioning ``Radio Mondiale Adventiste`` in French and some percussion. HFCC B-16 shows it`s AWR, 2000-2030 daily, to CIRAF 46 = southern part of W Africa, 250 kW, 305 degrees from MADAGASCAR and thus carrying on well to Enid, in the ``Mos`` language. What`s that? EiBi`s key shows ``MOO Moore/MÃorÃ: Burkina Faso (5 million) [mos]``. Apparently a brand-new service as I find no such language abbr. in their B-15 WRTH schedule, nor in A-16 HFCC. A first! More Adventist converts on the way in Ouagadougou (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MADAGASCAR. 7390, Nov 4 at 0337, a JBA carrier in margin of bit 7385 WHRI, maybe MWV Spanish as now scheduled 0200-0400; with Iran ending Pashto at 0320, RFI starting French at 0400 --- except for 10 kW AIR Port Blair, ANDAMAN & NICOBAR Islands, supposedly starting day frequency at 0315. I`d prefer that â but AIR domestic day frequencies are extremely rare over here.
17640, Nov 4 at 2000, no sign of MWV as B-16 scheduled for new English broadcast, nor the original one at 1800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5024.919, Nov 3 at 1133, weak signal with some talk, in absence of 5025 R. Rebelde, presumably R. Quillabamba still propagating, despite Cusco sunrise of 1013! Marred by nearby storm noise.
5024.895, approx., Nov 4 at 0051, Rebelde still off allowing very poor broadcast signal from same. Stephen C Wood in Harwich MA was listening about the same time and reported to the DXLDyg:
``5024.9 - R. Quillabamba, Quillabamba, Perà at 0027 Nov. 4, 2016 - OM with announcements in Spanish followed by music, Andean style children vocal // station website. Signal only poor/fair at S5/6 level. Static is high leading to barely discernible audio. Extensive announcements after 0030 with possible ads. Audio is continually falling below noise floor. Tough listening but I was able to verify with the website during musical segments. No sign of R. Rebelde at this time. Perseus SDR with 25x50 terminated superloop antenna``
BTW, station is celebrating its 50th anniversary now with an exhibition including DX reports it has received:
Tnx Hansjoerg Biener for link (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, Nov 4 at 0101, wasteful Cuban pulse jamming is too heavy to detect even a JBA carrier from Chaski (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAIPAN [and non]. 9825, Nov 3 at 1144, two signals mixing in Chinese, one with a brief English clip, adding up to S9+10, so RFA as scheduled 1100-1500, the other CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 15710, Nov 3 at 1931, huge S9+45 signal with The Overcomer Ministry, // 17790 WRMI but not synch. It`s WHRI as now available 14-22 UT, 100 kW at 315 degrees. Apparently replaces 17765, and its terrible splatter, no longer listed.
21675, Nov 3 at 1932, more TOM here, but not BS himself at the moment, and not synch or // 15710. It seems TOM is plugged in at various times to the Radio Africa Network service, perhaps as filler.
Also, Ivo Ivanov explains why I was hearing Brother HyStairical on 9800 at 2155 Nov 1, and not via Armenia as registered until 2100:
``SECRETLAND Reception of Brother HySTAIRical via SPL Secretbrod Nov 3
2000-2200 9800 SCB 050 kW / 306 deg WeEu ex 1900-2100 in A-16
2000-2200 19600 SCB 050 kW / 306 deg WeEu 2nd harmonic of 9800 kHz``
** SUDAN SOUTH [non] & SUDAN [non]. 7315, Nov 4 at 0338, collision between WHRI, and R. Tamazuj, making a SAH of 2.8 Hz. A failure of frequency management. Ivo Ivanov reported as of Nov 3
``From Oct. 30 no signal of R. Tamazuj & R. Dabanga`` while giving the registered schedule including 7315, 250 kW, 146 degrees via VATICAN at 0330-0600, shifting from 146 to 151 degrees at 0400 and from Tamazuj to Dabanga at 0430. The also shifting parallels from SMG, France, Madagascar and Germany, 9600, 13800, and 15550 are not heard here and hardly likely to be over low MUF winter night paths.
I recheck at 0453, when 7315 is in the clear, but poor in Arabic. At 0541, still algo on 7315 but very poor. At 0556-0557* I barely detect the Radio Dabanga jingle reading a generous S9. I had also checked this Nov 2 at 0555 and heard nothing, so at that point Ivo may have been correct that the Sudanese target services were missing. (Brother Scare doesn`t start via WHRI 7315 until 0600.)
The evening pair of broadcasts are now scheduled 1430-1630 on 13800 and 15550: 13800 from Nauen to Madagascar at 1500; 15550 from Issoudun to Vatican at 1500; and all from Tamazuj to Dabanga at 1530. Is that unclear? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 15580, Fri Nov 4 at 1930, VOA in Spe-cial Eng-lish with report on the anti-Hillary FBI scandal; good signal from BOTSWANA via the BST-1 caradio. Spl Eng consistently heard at this time at least on weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1850 monitoring: confirmed Thursday November 3 at 2130 on WRMI 13695, excellent. Also confirmed Thu Nov 3 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.950v-CSB, fair. Also confirmed Fri Nov 4 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.987v-CUSB, fair. Next:

** U S A. 11580, Nov 3 at 2025, news about Asia/Pacific, outro by Keith Perron as `Focus Asia Pacific` which is one of the PCJ Radio International programs, unexpectedly occupying the designated `Media Network Plus` hour on WRMI, Thu 20-21; 2029 on to an old `Media Network` with Marks discussing AM stereo and the four incompatible systems the FCC was leaving to the market to select (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7730, UT Fri Nov 4 at 0048, this WRMI is playing ``Hotel California`` song in unknown language, part of the `World Music` rotation which shows up from time to time. Only the UT Wed and UT Fri 00-01 hours of 7730 on the skedgrid are now unlabeled, still subject really to World Music concerts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490+, UT Fri Nov 4 at 0046, WBCQ playing back part of a recent `Allan Weiner Worldwide` I recognize, as filling in this hour of the schedule, open for new business (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9605, Nov 4 at 0116, S4 open carrier dead air from WHRI instead of KBS World Radio relay in Spanish. Not the first time such has been observed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15610, 13830, 12050, 11870, 11550, 11520, Nov 4 at 1948, WEWN missing from all possible daytime frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Nov 4 at 0043, VOV in Spanish via WHRI, vs Romania in Spanish, colliding about equal S9 levels. RRI is B-16 scheduled to be on 7335 instead. The same anomaly happened in B-15, but VOV was not a victim then. Anyhow, despite incomplete scheduling, VOV via WHRI continues on 7315 at both hours 00-02 UT, alternating English and Spanish; at 0120 clear in English but only S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Nov 4 at 1950, 2001 and 2034 chex, no signal from ZBC, nor heard at random chex the past few days. On Nov 3, Ivo Ivanov reported it had not been heard since Nov 1:
UNIDENTIFIED. 1590: Having seen my earlier report on the ``Bollywood`` station, John Reed in Shawnee OK replied Nov 2:
``Maybe this is what I heard:
It looks like they were doing Bollywood music then, but may have switched formats this month. That signalâs power and distance sounds more like what I was hearing. 73, John``
Pertinent quote at end of wikipedia article:
``In mid October 2016, Radio Aleluya programming was replaced with brokered South Asian programming "Radio Dabang" which had aired on Siga Broadcasting station [1480] KLVL in Pasadena. This was done in an effort to provide better nighttime service to the southwest areas of Houston that KLVL was unable to cover after sunset.``
The radioaleluya website now shows 980 KQUE as the main station, and with coverage maps
of 16 stations in the market, mostly FM translators, no 1590, and only two on AM, 980 KQUE and 1380 KRCM (but a while ago that was split off to a separate ``Radio Viva``, so may not be up to date.)
KMIC had crossed my mind but as far as I knew it was R. Aleluya, at least from early this year, and with an extremely unfavorable night pattern SE into the GOM. That would explain why the only Asian music I have been hearing loops toward Chicago rather than Houston. Getting a bearing on whatever is heard on 1590 would go a long way toward resolving this.
The R. Dabang website http://radiodabang.com now greets us with
About The Radio Dabang --- Radio Dabang is presented to you by Bollywood Show 4 U which is a renowned entertainment management company based out of Houston Texas. Radio Dabang is Houstonâs top South Asian Bollywood Radio station. It has been an industry leader and dominating the Bollywood radio category in Houston since its inception with over 2 million listeners. Read More`` [which leads to a 404]
So indeed John could have been hearing this since mid-October on 1590, but the ``Bollywood`` station heard for ``years`` before would have to be something else, like WCGO which has been ETHnic for a long time including partially Bollywood (but rather Assyrian at the time of his log, as I researched before).
``10-12-2016, 09:02 PM #1 Mediafrog+
Radio Dabang moves from 1480 to 1590
KLVL 1480 is running looped messages from Radio Dabang telling listeners to tune to 1590. And checking KMIC the regular Radio Dabang programming has indeed moved there. The announcement loop mentions that listeners had complained about the 1480 signal, especially the inadequate nighttime coverage. Not a surprise, as the 1480 night signal starts to die west of downtown Houston, and is buried in the co-channel pileup when you get to the West Loop. As most of the South Asian community is in the southwest part of the market, Radio Dabang couldn't reach them after sunset. So a format change for KMIC 1590, and it would appear that KLVL 1480 is looking for a new tenant``
1590, Nov 4 at 0100 UT thru hourtop check, someone is playing Elvis` ``All Shook Up``, unlikely any of these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5100.00, Nov 3 at 1236, strong open carrier, S9 to S9+20, a broadcaster testing?? Also the same Nov 4 at 0553.
5125.00, Nov 4 at 0050, very strong open carrier, just like the 5100.00 one yesterday, but S9+30. This could bother 5130v WBCQ if on at the same time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7200-LSB, Nov 4 at 1317, country-rock music, with some pretty deft guitar-plucking. Altho there is also a very weak carrier, lacking USB, I conclude this is someham, and not Myanmar. Finishes at 1320 and another ham opines ``ear-bleedin` crappy D-104`` -- referring to a microphone? And utters a callsign, perhaps his own, K9RSY, which ARRL/FCC lookup shows as: ``CHUROVICH 419, DANIEL G, K9RSY, RIPLEY, TN 38063`` --- yes, 419 as part of his surname. 7200 is the 40m hangout for hams(?) eager to violate the rules (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
