[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 1-2, 2018

** BRAZIL. 11780, March 1 before 2100, RNA again not on air yet, but must have started circa *2100, tuned at 2110 during a semihour of happy sertaneja(?) tunes, brief talks about Amap? and live UT-3 timechex; not until 2130 does the serious all-talk `Reporte da Amaz?nia` begin, ``uma produ??o da Rede de R?dios P?blicas da Amaz?nia``, starting with news about Par? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 245 kHz, March 1 at 0707 UT, MCW ND beacon YZE and dash, from Gore Bay, Ont., barely readable in a band getting noisier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 2749-USB, March 2 at 0105, synthyl in French with forecasts for vendredi. This schedule
shows the last station starting before 0105 would be from 0040, VCO Sydney NS, via Port Caledonia site; but as English only. I continue to wonder how accurate that info may be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15576, 15507, 15438, 15303, 15236, (15165 missing?), 15095, 15026, 14958, 14890, March 1 at 1443, RHC-FM spurblobs out of 15370-AM at 67-68 kHz intervals, the outer ones JBA but at least with the dead giveaway F# tone. Closer ones with quite readable modulation in FM reception mode. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11650, March 1 at 1529, RHC is still going with music // stronger 11760, despite official own B-17 schedule claiming 11650 closes at 1500. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ETHIOPIA [non]. 11575 & 11595, March 1 at 1630, checked UTwente for Radio OMN via BULGARIA, as I had first heard both Feb 24, 11595 being ex-11600. But now, Nothing! on either frequency, nor any in between. Propagation? No, India [q.v.] good in Russian on 11560, Vatican good in English on 11625 via Madagascar.
SECRETLAND Reception of IRRS Radio OMN via SPL Secretbrod Feb 25:
1600-1700 11595 SCB 050 kW / 195 deg EaAf Oromo, ex 11600, good signal
1600-1656 11575 SCB 100 kW / 195 deg EaAf Oromo, good with 1 sec delay
Oromiya Media Network had been at 1600-1700 via Secretbrod as in Ivo`s latest DX ReMix News review; but if both via Kostinbrod, why would they be one second apart?? Anyhow, what`s become of OMN now? Please check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 11560, March 1 at 1639-1640, AIR Russian talk stops for about a minute as they seem to be fumbling in the studio before resuming. Recent new frequency via Bengaluru, good reception via UTwente SDR, as I was checking for OMN nearby (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7254.921, March 1 at 2051, S8-S5 African talk with some reverb, VON of course, which I normally hear only in the +06-08 UT period. WRTH shows Hausa only at 20-21, missing the 06-07 transmission (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND. 7120, March 1 at 1925, via UTwente I`m tuned in early to catch any English newscast from R. Hargeisa, as listed in WRTH: only Somali phone interview and more talk past 1935, music from around 1940.
BTW, in all my monitoring of this thus, never hear any QRhaM, SSB, CW or anymode. Seems the Eurafricans give it wide berth, while they would be perfectly entitled to QRM this INTRUDER (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 15390, March 1 at 2037, the defective REE transmitter is off, for repairs? Will it be ef-fective when resumed? I doubt it. 15500 is still propagating almost as well as 9690, with silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, March 2 at *0114:16, SLBC carrier cuts on, as I have been standing by for a minute; musical pr?lude from 0114:49, and a two-pip mis-timesignal ends at 0115:05.5, right into presumed Hindi talk sign-on.
It seems almost 6 months have passed since my last catch and clockage of this trans-polar weaquency, only one second difference: ``11905, Sept 12 at 0114, SLBC S1 carrier, but I can make out the final resounding pip of the mis-timesignal at 0115:06.5``. Earlier last year and the year before, they were typically 18 seconds late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1919 monitoring: confirmed at 2249, the Thursday March 1 2230.5 on WRMI 5850, good. If this stay at same time and frequency into summer, will get progressively more absorbed. Also confirmed UT Friday March 2 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330.24v-CUSB, S6-S3, by 0049 peaking at S9. Next:

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 4041-USB, UT Fri March 2, at 0102, MARS net as NCS AFA7PQ is taking check-ins from AFA7HZ, AFA7HE, AAR7AJ, etc. I had just logged `PQ, Frank Miller in Nebraska, last night at 0035 on 4020-USB. And I last logged a 4041 net on the same DOW and time, April 21, 2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, March 1 at 2052, RAE multi-lingual ID, presumably ending the Italian hour from Argentina; by 2057, WRMI World Music fill of the peppy steel-drum piece is playing; 2100 back to Oldies, but after first tune pausing for VOA News relay at 2103-2108, a different YL than usual, not stumbling unless I missed one in a fade, self-outroduced as Ruth Compton(?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490.06, UT Fri March 2 at 0122, this ``available time slot`` on WBCQ is filled by an `AWWW` playback, as Allan is telling a story about ``*u*k*d-*p 807`` tubes he was trying to be rid of, to the guffaws of his studio audience (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12050 & 5970, March 1 at 1527, WEWN Spanish is AWOL both from day and night frequencies (and should be on day by now). But 15610 English is on and poor as usual. Recheck March 1 at 2042, now 12050 is on, as immediately identified by the monomaniacal catchphrase of Radio Cat?lica Mundial, ``por su dolorosa pasi?n`` which during certain hours is regurgitated several times per minute. 12050 is rather weak and could easily not be competitive for SSOB honors.
BTW, Ivo keeps pointing out that one of the WEWN registered B-17 English frequencies, 9470 at 09-12 has never shown up, leaving a gap in that language between 11520 and 15610. It was supposed to reach SE Asia transpolarly at 355 degrees. Perhaps they prudently concluded it wasn`t going to make it from Alabama. Maybe better chance in summery A-season, 09-13 at 335 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers: not a thorough search, but March 2 at 0113 I check below 800, and find +1 kHz hets next to 530, and at 0120 next to 620. 531 is assumed to be Algeria, usually accompanied by 549, but not now, while 621 is assumed to be Canary Islands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1190, March 2 at 0110 UT, Spanish conversation atop the CCI, seems to be religious and/or about health. Tough to DF, but maybe ENE/WSW. NRC AM Log shows the only Unitedstatesian SS that fits would be KNUV Tolleson AZ, with Grupo F?rmula, 5000/250 watts U4. But I wonder if KDMR Kansas City MO, 5000/500 U2, EWTN affiliate, might have some Spanish as well as English, or have flipped languages. Its group, CRN, appears to be English only. If Mexican, could be XEPZ Ciudad Ju?rez, 1000/100 watts. Its latest slogan is Radio Centro, per WRTH 2018 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, March 1 at 0036, JBA carrier S5-S3, during brief fade-up enough for ECSS lock, seems to be a trace of modulation. Could it be an Euro-pirate? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6220, March 1 at 0040, JBA carrier, and with ECSS sounds just barely modulated: a favorite Euro-pirate frequency. Or maybe a 49mb mixing product (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11590-11610, March 1 at *1658-1715* strong wideband rapid pulsing buzzroar at a steady rate, noticed on UTwente SDR, as I had been seeking any sign of Oromiya Media Network via Bulgaria (see ETHIOPIA [non]); OTH radar? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINGDIGEST)
