[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs January 15, 2017

** AUSTRALIA. 5045 & 5055, Jan 15 at 1354, JBA carriers presumably from Ozy Radio and 4KZ. Hours for these are quite flexible; concerning yesterday, Ron Howard in California reported:
``Jan 14 - Seems that Al Kirton (general manager of Radio 4KZ) has started some type of an abbreviated schedule. Today heard at 1136, but clearly off the air at 1307 check. Yes, 4KZ is in fact on a new schedule. This per Al, on Jan 14 (2320 UT): "We are running from 7 am to 10 pm Queensland time. That?s 2100 to 1200 GMT I think. We are happy to extend hours if there is a call for it. Cheers, Al" So 5055 kHz is currently on from 2100 to 1200 UT. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BIAFRA [non]. (9955, 11530), Jan 15 at 0520 check, the main WRMI webcast labeled RAE, after 9955 is off with no BS to fill it, is again carrying R. Biafra during this semihour, music, then YL in Igbo with schedule announcement, numbers in English, mentioning 7240 (via France) and ``1153``, stumbling over 11530, ex-frequency via WRMI. Probably webcast every night at this time, but no longer on any WRMI SW frequency. Maybe feed to France? Is that still on air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 14625, 14690, 14755, 14830, 14895, 14960, 15030, 15095, 15165, 15235, 15305, 15438, VERY approx., Jan 15 at 1427-1432, blobs from RHC 15370 at 65-70 kHz intervals. This time I am tuning 5-kHz steps in the FM mode, listening for the same-pitch whine which all of them emit, the lowest being 14625 which is of the eleventh order! Fortunately they miss CHU. Hardly any on the plus side of 15370; normally there are a few but always more on the minus side. Only the closer ones provide readable modulation, 15032 and up, clearly on 15305. Something`s always (VERY!) wrong at RHC. 15370 and its constellation are all gone by 1554 check, while separate weaker fundamental 15230 remains on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Jan 15 at 1353, no signal today from SIBC. About yesterday when I had it at 1446, Ron Howard replied on the DXLD yg, `` Hi Glenn, Jan 14 - Today with modulation problems! Noted 1154 with decent level carrier, but no trace of any audio; random checking up till 1326 found the same; 1334-1418 noted with audio, playing mostly Pacific Islands pop songs, along with a few hit songs in English; believe was not the Wantok FM relay, as clearly there were no frequent IDs, plus the fact it was Sunday and in the past Wantok FM normally would play mostly religious songs; so I conclude this was SIBC's own programming running well past their normal 1200* sign off; checked again at 1525 and  found the audio was again totally silent, but with a decent level carrier  still on. As you indicate - strange behavior in light of their budget concerns. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13354-USB, Jan 15 at 1450, New York ATC YL contacting numerous TA flights, referring to secondary/backup 11396, and for some referring to Santa Maria (A?ores) frequencies. ``Sel-call coming up``, she says to many of them, then two tones. I assume the exact pitches of these tones denote each particular aircraft/flight. Are they not permanently in effect, reassigned on the fly? Still no New York Radio VOLMET on 13270-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13565, Jan 15 at 1438, 1.8-milliwatt K6FRC HIFER beacon in California is JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1912 monitoring: confirmed, JBA, UT Monday January 15 after 0030 on WBCQ, 9329.973-CUSB. Confirmed, UT Mon Jan 15 from 0403 on Area 15 webcast, and presumably at 0413 on WBCQ 5129.82 JBA carrier. Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 15 at 0430 on WRMI 9955 and 9455, both good. 9455 to WNW now duplicates 9955 to SSE at 0430-0500 among certain other slots. Next:
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1913?]
Tue 2130   WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1913?]
Wed 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030   WRMI 9455 to NW [or #1913?]

** U S A. 17774.891v, Jan 15 at 1550, KVOH up from usual 17774.888, S7-S9 poor signal, but much better than JBA carrier sometimes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5970, Jan 15 at 1349, WEWN, Radio Cat?lica Mundial with dead air except for rustling, coughing, during live morning mass in English, while the only axion is visual, not good for radio; finally says something in English, interrupted by voice-over in Spanish, but it`s *not* a translation of what was just said; out of synch, automated, or not paying attention, own agenda for order of the mass? Soon switches to studio Spanish only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [non]. 7305, Jan 15 at 0157, no signal from Greenville B, which had been relaying VR in Spanish at 0145-0230 (and carrier on as early as 0130, which is all I heard last night). So have VR via IBB relays been canceled? What about 1230-1300 on 9610 via GB?
There were also more via Philippines, etc., and considerable exchange relays of VOA via SMG site, which is allegedly being closed down. At least this will finally get the USG out of violating Separation of Church and State, altho obviously not the reason and of no concern to the ptb when initiating such a deal in the first place (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
