[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs February 3, 2018

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Feb 3 at 0143, no signal from CB; and I believe 11775 was not heard either during random daytime chex Feb 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BONAIRE [and non]. 800, Feb 3 at 0126 UT, nulling KQCV OKC from the SSE, I would normally hear CKLW, but even at that angle, Spanish is atop it, mentions La Habana and dios, so likely PJB. XEROK originally would be dominant, but has receded into QRP and hardly hear it any more --- maybe around sunrise. SAH of about 40/minute = 0.67 Hz, not clear between which two of the three or four. MW Offset list shows:
799.9983 BES PJB Shine 800 AM (Trans World Radio) (Kralendijk)
         [-799.999] 2017-12-30
799.9985 MEX XEROK-AM Radio Ca??n (Ciudad Ju?rez)
         [799.9985-800.0002] 2017-09-12
799.9999 USA KQCV (Oklahoma City, OK) 2018-01-23
800.0015 CAN CKLW (Windsor, ON) [799.998-] 2014-01-03
Plenty of other LA stations now must cope with the superpower Bonairean: WRTH shows 7 other Mexicans on 800; also one each: Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Honduras (2), Nicaragua, Panam?, El Salvador. There are also Colombians, Ecuadorians, deeper South Americans, but no Venezuelans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 13670, Feb 3 at 1352, RHC, a rather obscure frequency and not an outstanding one, // -2.000 MHz much stronger 11670, which now serves as fulcrum for leapfrog mixing product of 11950 landing on 11390 barely audible, and in reverse likewise on 12230 at 280 kHz intervals.
15033, 15100, 15167, 15234, 15302, 15438, Feb 3 at 1507, approx. centers of RHC-FM spurblobs out of 15370-AM, about 67.5 kHz intervals, all with F# tone, but the next one up, 15506 is much weaker (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FINLAND [and non]. 6170, Sat Feb 3 at 0140, not even a JBA carrier from Scandinavian Weekend Radio, supposed to be on now with its monthly broadcast. At least it is a clear frequency, unlike 5980 when they allegedly change to it. // 11690 not expected either, and 25mb is almost dead except for weak 11520 WEWN; how is 49mb propagation? 6130 RRI is S9+30 talking about golf; 6180 has some Spanish, which is Iran at 0020-0320; I hope no one is mistaking that for Brasil in Portuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 11675, Feb 3 at 1358, S9-S6, YL in Russian keeps talking thru hourtop 1402+ and fading. That`s because it`s hourbottom for VIRI at 1320-1420, 500 kW, 322 degrees from Sirjan, so carrying on well to far America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also FINLAND [and non]
** NORTH AMERICA. unID, 6940-USB, Feb 3 at 0146, ``Pretty Woman`` at S9+10, but interrupted, cut off air at 0148*. I would have guessed Wolverine Radio, and earlier in the 0100 hour no pirates were audible. NO logs of this in HFU, so probably only briefly on air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SERBIA. 14186.9-USB, Feb 3 at 1510, YT1A working simplex in contest, 59/28s to contacts. page with his grandkids and tennas:
YT1A Serbia flag Serbia
Vladan Curlic
Cerska 14
36000 Kraljevo PAK:561126
There`s a hook over the first C of Curlic; is that Romanized Serbian, or Croatian? Why not re-spell it Churlitz if non-Cyrillic?
Of course, I was looking for Bouvet; still nothing, nor pileups just above 14187. Their website has no update since last one I quoted over 48 hours ago, not yet landed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1915 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday February 3 at 0041, the 0030 on WBCQ, 9330.049v-CUSB, JBA with a trace of me, on the Icom. Recheck 0059 on the JRC, better S5-S7 at 9330.036v-CUSB.
Confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, Feb 3, 0730-0800 on  6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, weak/fair
Confirmed by me, Sat Feb 3 at 1531 on HLR 6190-CUSB, via UTwente SDR, but just barely, losing under Chinese CCI. A few minutes earlier, `Media Network` Minus --- no prop from me --- was still readable. By 1557, no WOR detectable at all. At least no heavy ACI from 6195 BBC as registered from 1500 effective Feb 1, but by 1559 that is on, 335 degrees from Oman in Farsi. Next:
Sat 2030v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 5130.82, UT Sat Feb 3 at 0111, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, 30 second delay behind 7489.90v, very poor, and was not on at 0100 when first checked. Latter is S8-S9, helped with ECSS. From Deland of Fla, rather interesting different topic for a change, long monolog about his experiences in the searchlight business --- with huge 5-foot mirrors, rented out for attracting attention to nighttime events, but something for which there is no longer much demand. Explains the technical aspects of these devices. Original purpose of this military surplus equipment was anti-aircraft tracking in early WWII, before radar. Finally takes call from Norm at 0139; Norm seems to be the main/only caller these days.
Here`s John Carver`s report on same: ``Listening on 7490 this evening as it's coming in for some reason tonight. Show started about thirty seconds late after some dead air. Allan and Angela in the studio in FLA. Today they went to a surplus store looking for parts for a searchlight that Allan is working on. A few deep fades on 7490. Talk about his experience with and fascination with searchlights. Moved to 5130 at 0130 as 7490 was getting difficult to listen to and Allan is still talking about searchlights. Signal on 5130 is not much better. Talk eventually moves to the expected lifetime of new radios and the electronics in new cars. First phone call at 0140 from Mr. Transistor, Norm. Phone call lasted until 0155. Time to read one email and partially read another before the closing prayer. Show was off the air at 0200. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, Sat Feb 3 at 1414, tune-in to WRMI with VOA News in progress, mid-ID, and allowed to complete at 1417, back to Oldies. // 7780 JBA; both instead of `Power Hour` replay on weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775, Feb 3 at 1700, JBA carrier from presumed KVOH, now scheduled Saturdays in English from 1600; and `Wavescan` would have been at 1630 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also ZAMBIA
** ZAMBIA. 13680, Sat Feb 3 at 1344, really wild jazz stands out, S4-S6; 1346 announced as Oscar Peterson et al., and right into Jesus stuff. It`s Pat Conrad`s `Jazz Session`, which used to be on KVOH 9975, an excuse to proselytize; does he avoid playing non-Christian jazz artists? Must be plenty of Jews, who might not appreciate the juxtaposition. 1349 Voice of Hope contact info including California PO Box. Yes, now on the just updated Jan 29 sked:
Sat 1300-1400, // 9680 non-direxional unchecked. No such program is to be found on the KVOH sked now, SW or webstream:
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 3 at 0121 on the JRC: only 684, 612. Tuning on up with nothing, I quit at 1215.
TA JBA MW carrier search, Feb 3 at 0650-0701 on the Icom: 603, 612, 639, 693, 729, 756, 774*, 837, 855, 873, 882*, 909, 954, 999, 1008, 1035, 1044*, 1053*, 1089, 1098, 1116, 1125, 1152, 1161, 1197, 1215*, 1296, 1305, 1521. *the stronger ones but still no audio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
