[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs February 5-6-7, 2018

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Feb 6 at 0724, TUN/DGS/PMS/CB is off again. Also at 0358 Feb 7, audiblizing ETHIOPIA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Feb 5 at 1910 check, still music fill instead of RAE in German via WRMI; also circa 2045 check when RAE Italian is supposed to be on. Thus begins a *second month* of such non-broadcasts. Of course, instead of mis-programming, it`s conceivable that these languages have been canceled, and simply failed to be removed from the WRMI online schedules:
but they do also appear on the RAE German and Italian pages along with the rest of the languages ``effective January 8``:
So it may be news to RAE that these broadcasts are going literally nowhere. Still AWOL Feb 6 at 1932 with Spanish song about dios as there is increasing praise music interspersed with `World Music`; and at 2034 the Portuguese fado (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15370-AM, Feb 6 at 1534 check, RHC WITHOUT all the 10 or 12 FM spurblobs on 19m, just its own real weaker AM // 15230. The band seems so vacant without them. But shows they *do not* have to be there. I bet they`re back tomorrow and 86% of the ensuing morns (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1916, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ETHIOPIA. 6090, Feb 7 at 0358, HOA music and talk, S9+10, R. Amhara clear in the absence of Dead Gene Scott; may it ever be so.
Except if R. Nigeria Kaduna were active from *0400 as in NDXC/Aoki, it would apply a het upon it. WRTH 2018 page 306 shows it daggered from *0430, the only possible Nigerian domestic SW station left (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 7390, Feb 6 at 1450, RNZI/RNZP back on proper frequency with music, 1500 5+1 TS and RNZ News; yesterday was on 9890 by mistake not having QSYed from there at 1259. Now there is still a JBA carrier on 9890, presumably CNR 13, 1100-1805 in Uyghur, 100 kW, 286 degrees from Lingshi 725 site, as in NDXC/Aoki (VOK starts Arabic at 1530, maybe more of a challenge to overcome). On Feb 5 I did not hear any CCI to NZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1916, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Mon Feb 5 at 1945 check, and Tue Feb 6 at 1932, R. Herwa International is back on via WRMI, usual good signal, after absence on Feb 3-4, Sat-Sun, so intentionally M-F only, or just sporadic? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1916, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7200-AM, Feb 6 at 0720, K1KW in QSO with much weaker station, switches from LSB to AM just for a demonstration. Huge signal in both modes; wonder how much power he runs? ARRL/FCC lookup shows:
O [no apostrophe] NEAL III, CHARLES D, K1KW, PO Box: 369, BOLTON, MA 01740 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1915 monitoring: not confirmed UT Tuesday February 6 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: no signal audible. But VG at same time on WRMI 7730. Confirmed Tue Feb 6 at 2030 on WRMI 7780 // 9455, about equal fair reception this time; and at 2130 on 9455 only.
Produxion of WOR 1916 delayed by yahoo mail outages, not ready until 0136 UT Feb 7; so 1915 replayed one more time, UT Wed Feb 7 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330.1v-CUSB --- except, not on air at 0030; cuts on in progress at 0031, off again. At least a fair-good signal while on, but I`m still finishing 1916 and broadcast of 1915 has already been ruined, maybe with more intermittence I`d prefer not to hear.
WORLD OF RADIO 1916 contents: Armenia, Australia, Bonaire,  Bougainville, Bouvet, Brasil, China and non, Cuba, Egypt, Ethiopia and non, France, India, Indonesia, Korea North, Korea South, Kurdistan non, New Zealand, Nigeria non, Papua New Guinea, South Carolina non, Taiwan, UK, USA, Vatican non, Zambia, Zimbabwe non; and the propagation outlook.

** U S A. 7780, Feb 6 at 0029, WRMI with canned announcement about all programming on 11580 going to change to 7780 from Jan 8 (as if it were still pending). About time to retire than one. See also ARGENTINA [non], NIGERIA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
