[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs August 2-3, 2017

** CHINA. 3900, August 3 at 1124, JBA AM carrier, perhaps PBS Hulun Buir, 10 kW ND from Hailar, Mongolia Inner per Aoki. H-AM might have been here too but no intermittence during by brief intuneance (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11900, August 3 at 1415, M&W conversing in S Asian language, and music, fair S8; still at 1436 down to S5-S8. Aoki shows it`s CRI in Sinhala this hour, 500 kW, 258 degrees from Jinhua-Youbu 831 site, which I hardly would expect to be hearing so well here; a fluke? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11745-11775, August 3 at 1438, RHC music on 11760 is splattering out to here from quite distorted/overmodulated S9+20 fundamental. Same on S9+30 15370 is clear and splashing only 15360-15380 at 1443 August 3, while as always // 15230 is much weaker, S8-S5 and also undermodulated. // 17730 a JBA carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 3910 & 3930, August 3 at 1124, sounds like // music vs noise jamming, so Voice of the People, clandestine, each 50 kW ND on their recently adjusted frequencies as of a couple months ago. I expect 3930 is bothering JOZ 3925 reception in Asia.
3985, August 3 at 1125, similar signal with jamming but talk, i.e. the other clandestine, Echo of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 540, August 3 at 1055, choral NA already playing from WSW, 1058 as expected ``La Ranchera de Paquim?``, XETX sign-on full ID from Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, along with 90.5 FM, street address, Grupo BM Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 540, August 3 at 1058, having just heard XETX sign on, now there is another Mexican NA in its null toward the SSE, and 1100 ID as ``Los Cuarenta``, i.e. XEWA, San Lu?s Potos?, SLP.
At this angle I am also getting a low het, but no time to pin it down, suspected Nicaragua where Managua sunrise is not until 1132 vs 1140 here. On July 8 until 0459*, Bruce Conti in NH measured R. Corporaci?n on 539.859 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 660, August 3 at 1103, choral NA from SSW, 1105 into music but interjecting ``La Kaliente 102.9``, i.e. XEEY, Aguascalientes2, 50/10 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 710.0, August 3 at 1106, bit of ``Ode to Joy`` theme, or rather whatever hymn has stolen its tune, and sermon in Spanish about el muro de Jerusal?n. Voice sounds like same guy I frequently hear a few minutes later in bajoalem?n, i.e. XEDP, La Ranchera de Cuauht?moc, Chihuahua, not on the off-frequency transmitter at the moment. Maybe he appreciates Beethoven (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 4774.908, August 3 at 1121, very poor carrier vs CODAR. Suspect it`s still Radio Tarma, where sunrise today is 1120. Recent logs put it on approx. 4774.9, and the last precise one I find is from 2 June 2016 by Carlos Gon?alves, Portugal on 4774.946, when he distinguished it from Brasil on 4774.914, closer to my measurement but Congonhas SR was a bihour earlier; and there is nothing in Asia circa 4775 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13557-13565, August 3 at 1440 check, not a trace of any of the HIFER beacons we used to log in this range, GNK, MTI, K6FRC, or SZX, as in this roster:
Almost daily bandscans for many months in daytime and nighttime have not detected any of these, so wonder if they are still active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1889 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 2 at 2100 on webcast of WBCQ, and shortly on 7490, fair vs summer noise level. Also confirmed Aug 2 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.135v-CUSB, fair. Next:

** U S A. (7490), August 2 at 2059 on WBCQ webcast, fragment of closing theme on `Financial Survival`, really catchy tune usually heard as I check for WORLD OF RADIO Weds at 2100. I suppose most pop fans know what it is, and now I do after Googling the lyrix: by ABBA:
``I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay
Ain't it sad
And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me
That's too bad
In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball
Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world
Aha aha
All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world
It's a rich man's world
A man like that is hard to find but I can't get him off my mind
Ain't it sad
And if he happens to be free I bet he wouldn't fancy me
That's too bad
So I must leave, I'll have to go
To Las Vegas or Monaco
And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same``
** U S A. 7780 // 9395 // 9455 WRMI, and non-synchro // 13845 WWCR, August 3 at 1400, `The Power Hour` on all with its filler-segment for affiliates not breaking to news, and now WRMI is not either, no more VOA news relay inserted --- at least not today. And the Oldies remain nowhere, man (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 880, August 3 at 1113 UT, YL with news about infrastruxure funding, on the ``World Radio Network`` --- huh? N/S so obviously KRVN Lexington NE; 1115 UT website and discuss Nebraska corn crop, on ``Nebraska World Radio`` --- huh? We already have the WRN based in London and the religious HCJB-affiliated WRN in the RGV.
I honestly thought they were saying ``world`` but website reminds me it`s really ``Rural``! And any qualified Nebraskan may join the NRRA for $25 and get a certificate. Other stations in the group are KNEB 960 and KTIC 840. Anyhow, the world beyond its daytime coverage area will be trying to hear KRVN around 1800 UT August 21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific MW carrier search: the ``season`` has begun --- I`d rather be sleeping, but since I`m awake, August 3 at 1047, a quick check for TP carriers, on 9 kHz steps via the handheld DX-398: Yes, JBA ones detected only on 747 from the WSW, i.e. 3LO Melbourne, Australia; and at 1049, 1098 kHz from the west, i.e. V7AB, Marshall Islands. Sunrise here: 1140 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1756 UT August 3
