[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 21, 2018

** CUBA. 6060, March 21 at 0621, RHC English is AWOL, leaving the ZY off-frequency alone. 6000, 6100, 6165 still going, and 5040 now runs English at 0500-0600v*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, March 21 at 0532, S4-S6 vs storm noise, but enough signal to make out some music from RNGE, Bata. Not unusual to get a JBA carrier sometime between 05 and 06, but trying now near a time Ron Howard was hearing modulation, and it worked. I still have a JBA carrier at 0611. Sunrise was 0525 UT, and less than two degrees from the Equator, as the name implies, SR time varies only about 22 minutes during the year (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KIRITIMATI. 846, March 21 at 0624, JBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati. I then undertake a TA JBA MW carrier search and find a few others, but 846 is *not* a significant European frequency; per WRTH, in fact nothing more than 1 kW in Ireland, Italy (tho there are medium-powers in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 6185, March 21 at 0623, S8 open carrier/dead air, obviously XEPPM continuing to burn after nominal 0600*; CDMX is still on UT -6, like most of central Mexico, DSTing to UT -5 and a 0500* s/off not until April 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAO TOME. 6020, March 21 at 0620, VOA French is S9 to S9+10 but barely modulated; scheduled as 0530-0630 M-F, 100 kW at 335 degrees, favorable for us.
6080, March 21 at 0621, VOA English is also undermodulated, but a bit better than 6020; also Pinheira, 0600-0700 daily, 100 kW ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 9690, March 21 at 2054, REE switches from Catalan to Castilian, in item about choosing presidential candidates; anchor (?) hastens to voice over the brief actuality into Castilian. 15390 BTW is still distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring; NOT confirmed at new time of 2100 UT Wed March 21 on WRMI 9955 since that transmitter is off the air. Not a total power failure as 9455, 9395 and 7780 are audible. Not until 2137 can I hear the 9955 carrier. BUT, WOR 1922 confirmed at same time of 2100 Wed March 21 on WBCQ, 7490.050, fair. Ahh, redundancy. Also confirmed Wed Mar 21 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, fair. Next:

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 9395, March 21 at 2328, M&W discussion // 9455. I`ve tuned in too late to confirm a WRMI FB notice that there is a new program at 2300-2330 M-F on 9395 (only), `Quick Study TV` with Pastor Rod Hembree, which I see has now also been added to the WRMI frequency skedgrid on 9395 (only), but not the program skedgrid. Tsk2 that so many have become so dependent on disgraced FB, even prioritizing it over own websites (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, UT Wed March 21 at 0532, WTWW-2 is still on with ham talk, since QSO show started at 0100(?); 0612, still on. 0634 still on discussing code plugs. 1358 awake again, *still* on, discussing Virginia reel dance; 1722 still on with C&W music at S9 approaching midday. Off by final check 3 hours later at 2022 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, March 21 at 0625: 549, 774, 783, 855, 936, 1044. See also KIRITIMATI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6800-CW, March 21 at 0617 regular beeps seem like a second apart, timesignal? But they stop before 0618 as I am starting to time them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
