[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs February 15-16, 2018

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Friday Feb 16 at 1900, RAE in German via WRMI, YL introducing the Donnerstag (Thursday) program, with German and WRMI frequencies, spelling out the website with ICAO fonetix in English. It`s 4 pm already in Bs. As., so you`d think they could have completed today`s broadcast, rather than running at least one day behind on WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11780, Feb 15 from 2130 or so I have RNA running as I doze, until cut off abruptly at 2200* as if on a timer, amid closing announcement, ``A Voz do Brasil estar? de volta ----``. No ACI from 11775 Anguilla AWOL today. DST ends Feb 18, so AVDB time will shift to 22-23 UT, as they should have been trying to explain --- does this mean RNA will also stay on one real hour later? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. MW beacons with info de,
341 kHz, Feb 16 at 0623, YYU and dash, vs local EI Enid: Kapuskasing, Ontario, 500 watts
346 kHz, Feb 16 at 0625, YXL and dash, Sioux Lookout, Ontario, 1000 W
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA
** CANADA. 6070-, Feb 16 at 0221, CFRX is fairly audible, slightly on the low side as usual; so still exists, despite inaudibility last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15230, Feb 16 at 1459, vintage Radio Rebelde ID, ``en la banda de 20 metros desde la Sierra Maestra``, as plug for its upcoming 60th anniversary 24 de febrero. Axually this is still Radio Habana Cuba as I happen to be tuned here searching for spurs out of the incomparably stronger // 15370-AM --- but NONE heard! Something`s not wrong at RHC, today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CZECHIA [non]. 7780, Feb 16 at 0229, WRMI Zanotti ID, 0230 opening R. Prague in English; poor. Too bad it`s on one of WRMI`s worst frequencies for North American coverage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Feb 16 at 1438 UT, KGYN is missing vs KOKK [q.v.] and other signals. Should be audible at 10 kW ND power, which they had also been running at night making it dominant even here toward Philadelphia. Maybe they`ve flipped again to radiate direxional-west all day and night? But by midday 1900 UT, JBA alone with KGYN ID on groundwave remnant only.
Following the rules about night and day patterns are obviously beyond them. Yet this is the station which for years has kept a CP going for 50/10/19 kW. And had been reported?/rumored? to be planning an ultimate move into the OKC market if it could get rid of 1220 KTLV. But the CP is for the same far-out No-Mans-Land co?rdinates as now, site right next to US 412 just east of Guymon with a big KGYN sign on the shack, three towers aimed right at WPHT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, Feb 16 at 1647 UT and everywhen, KAMG-LP Enid continues active as presumed satellator with praise music in Spanish, and distorted modulation, also splattering to first adjacents 91.9 and 92.3, but fortunately not to second-adjacents KOSU and KOMA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 13710.012, BSKSA always slightly off-frequency, Feb 16 at 1531, S9+20 with heavy flutter, Qur`an with reverb added for effect, also sounds like wind blowing thru the mike, from atop a minaret? Eclipses weaker RCC competition on 13765, and the SSOB except for 13820 Mart?. Much weaker 11860 Yemen service also sounds Qur`anic, but not 11745. Muezzin has a good voice, but I`m still waiting/wanting to hear a YL singing calls-to-prayer; how much longer now that females can even drive in the KSA? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.30v-USB, Brother Scare is S5 here, and S8-S9 on 5129.83, but the third WBCQ, 7490 is still off after 0200. At this hour also on revived WRMI: 5850 & 7730, both S9+20/30!
5129.83, Feb 16 at 0231 one of his all-too-frequent interruptions of himself to utter phone numbers, claim to be on 5130 24 hpd (not), and I think he also mentioned 9330 earlier. Still on the latter at 0310, hitting S9+10, much better than it usually does at night; full power now?
Not yet on WWCR 5890 which starts BS at 0400 (UT Sun/Mon 0500); 3215 had been TOM overnight, but not any more per Feb WWCR sked. Anyhow, this SOB (silly old broadcaster) is making quite a comeback tnx to the desires of WBCQ and WRMI, 4 overkill frequencies at once; and he was never off WWCR; but still nothing at all about these at
How long until WHRI and WWRB get back to riding this sinful cash cow too; never mind ethix? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. MW beacons:
388 kHz, Feb 16 at 0629, GLY, Clinton/Golden Valley, Missouri
407 kHz, Feb 16 at 0630, HRU, Herington, Kansas, each 25 watts
** U S A. 4018-USB, Feb 16 at 0330, all calls fonetik: ID1 is the NCS, with called or heard: 0OR, 0RB, 0SN, ID3. Finally heard a full call starting with AAA, so it`s MARS, but strange alfanumeric formats for the abbr`d calls. Another presumed MARS net on 4011-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11396-USB, Feb 16 at 1540, very poor signal in English with decimal numbers. Many logs at UDXF iog refer to this as `New York Oceanic` ATC contacting aircraft (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNID 11494
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: I missed checking Thu Feb 15 at 2230.5 on WRMI 5850 --- did anyone hear it, and in its entirety? Confirmed UT Fri Feb 16 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330.3v-CUSB, poor-fair (while 5130- kept BSing). Next:

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 7780 // 9395, Thu Feb 15 at 2120 check, WRMIs now with Oldies, intentionally having canceled `The Power Hour`. This page
still claims to be on WRMI at 3-5 pm and repeat at 7-9 am Central on 7780 & 9395; what do they know? Also WWCR 7490 & 13845, replay at 7-9 am, which I have not checked. Feb 16 at 1457, 7780 is indeed off and 9395 is back to Oldies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 830, Feb 16 at 1431 UT, loops E/W, promoting adoption from Family Life Radio,, i.e. KFLT Tucson AZ, legally on ND 50 kW day power from 1415 UT in Feb, to be 1330 UT in March. 770 KKOB also still in. Too bad AZ lacks any first-class 50/50 kW U1 clear channel station with rational programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1040, Feb 16 at 1435 UT, in WHO null, mentions 98.5, i.e. KCBR Monument CO. Should be on 2 kW CH power at 1345-1545 in February before full 15 kW day power; March from 1315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1130, Feb 15 at 2119 UT, KLEY Wellington KS still SNAFU, carrier cutting on and off irregularly with music bursts, 29 times in one 60-second period. Also separate rapid pulsing at regular rate.
1130, Feb 16 at 1437 UT, KLEY still pulsing and bits of modulation separately cutting on and off; also continuous background noise level transmitted on this frequency only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1210, Feb 16 at 1439 UT, nothing from KGYN from the west, but N/S station mentions celebrity birthdays, 1440 UT Rainbow Flower Shop ad in Huron, so KOKK in SD. Day pattern goes SE, night pattern NW, both with deep nulls to NE/SW, but we are almost due S from it. At 1454 UT plug some SD event specifying time as Central.
Roughly the western half of SD is on Mountain, more sensible than any other central-tier state, but if the MT/CT boundary followed the 97.5 W meridian where it should, like Enid west of that, even Huron would be in MT, leaving CT only for the easternmost strip of SD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
Also CCI from C&W to the NW/SE (not KGYN, which is talk ex-C&W), likely KHAT Laramie WY, 10000/1000 U2 (altho WY has another 1210 C&W, per NRC AM Log, KRSV Afton, 5000/250 U1, near the ID border on US 89 S of Jackson) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1660, Feb 16 at 1451 UT, ``Bison 1660`` slogan and back to ESPN with Dan Patrick (non). I was expecting KWOD Kansas City, but this is the mascotic slogan of KQWB West Fargo ND, listed by NRC AM Log with Fox SR instead of ESPN. Bisons apply both to football and basketball teams of NDSU, HQ in Fargo, admitting a certain partiality by this radio station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 13765, Fri Feb 16 at 1529, VN IS ``Christus Vincit``, 1530 ``Laudetur Iesus Christus`` in Latin, and right into Amharic ID and frequencies. Not bad S9-S7 signal, off the back? EiBi shows this at 1530-1600 // 11615 is in Amharic on Wed/Fri, TIG on days 2467. Therefore 3 & 5 in his system must equal Wed/Fri; starting on Mondays = Day 1 when there is apparently neither.
Is TIG Tigrinya or Tigre? Per EiBi`s readme.txt language abbr. roster:
``TGR Tigre/Tigr?: Eritrea (1m) [tig]
  TIG Tigrinya/Tigray: Ethiopia (4m), Eritrea (3m) [tir]``
So in the all-caps system, TIG is one, in the [] system, the other! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 16 at 0313, starting midband: 1044(2), 1098, 1125, 1152, 1215, 1422; the rest:
>From 0316, upward: 531, 549, 558(2), 585, 602, 621, 639, 666(2), 693(2), 711, 729, 738, 774(2), 783, 837, 855(2), 873, 882, 936, 1026.
JBA LW carrier search from 0320: 162, 252, the latter with QRM from nearby beacon SW, Stillwater OK (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6755.50-USB, Feb 16 at 0220, 2-way in unknown language, ACI to CHR VOLMET 6754.0-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11494.0-USB, Feb 16 at 1538, 2-way in American accent, only a few words with decimal numbers, into digital burst, nothing further for 2 minutes. Many recent logs of this frequency in UDXF
include US Coast Guard Cutters and aircraft (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
