[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 22-23, 2018

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, March 22 at 1937, WRMI Oldies ID, poor, weaker than // 9455. So still no RAE German relay.
9395 // stronger 9455, UT Fri Mar 23 at 0103, RAE English via WRMI is underway, lead-in about World Cup, music bed and then headlines starting with Peruvian presidential resignation. So contrary to WRMI skedgrid implication, RAE is continuing on both frequencies for rest of week. (Meanwhile VORW occupies 7780 // 5850 this UT hourday) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11810, March 22 at 1354, RHC is JBA but enough to match the mod with Spanish fundamental 11840 --- so this is a third-order x10 kHz spur, in addition to progressively stronger 11820 and 11830. I don`t get one on 11870, but yes on 11860 JBA vs equally JBA Yemen non. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 5060, 4980, 4850, 4500, March 23 at 0040, equal JBA carriers on this quartet, which combination can only be the four domestic language services of PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi, along grayline. Our sunset: 0045; their sunrise: 0008 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 15130, March 22 at 2052, poor S1-S2 YL in Japanese, something new? Hadn`t noticed before but HFCC shows NHK via FRANCE has been here all B-17 season, 1900-2100, 500 kW, 152 degrees from ISSoudun. And it`s still on the A-18 schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 14322.5-USB, March 22 at 2054, not enough preachers on the SWBC bands, so here`s one on 20m; sounds like a broadcast rather than a contact, quoting a verse, and praying to a Christian god. QSX? It`s definitely not a 2-way contact except perhaps in his imagination, the supplication really a performance for those overhearing. 2055 he`s closing the ``International Bible Study Net`` as K1HV via remote AB1FF. I don`t copy the calls for sure until a real contact which follows with WA6ZMN/portable 5. K1HV is Jerry in Waverly TN; AB1FF remote transmitter is in Shirley MA.
Fuller details from ARRL lookups: K1HV: BULLOCK 216, JERRY A, K1HV, 101 BRIARWOOD DRIVE, PO Box: 37185, WAVERLY, TN 371853203. What`s with the 216 as part of his surname (3:16??). AB1FF: SEFRANEK, THOMAS C, AB1FF, 112 GREAT RD, SHIRLEY, MA 01464.
Found the website right away, and tsk2, obviously doubters and truly informed study with scholars are not welcome:
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring: confirmed Thursday March 22 at 2230.5 on WRMI, 5850, fair and starting to lose out to daytime absorption, altho aimed NW right at us. We`ll see if it stay on the 51-meter band into summery A-18; 7570 would be preferable, abandoned along with Brother Scare. Also confirmed Thu Mar 22 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.3v-CUSB, fair. Next:

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 7490.041v-AM, UT Fri March 23 at 0116, like exactly one week ago, Blalock the Blaster is on WBCQ extension past nominal 0100* and still unshown on the program guide. Could be other nights too as I have not checked them all; in addition to 0000 on 9330v-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, March 22 at 1427, once again WTWW-2 is running 60m in the daytime, but not some Tedthing, rather gospel huxter sure sounds like Pass? Pastor Pete Peters, but not // certainly him on 9475 WTWW-1. At 1434 analogy with dog food (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1130, March 22 at 1703 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS still SNAFU with bits of modulated carrier cutting on and off at irregular intervals, while separate rapid regular noise pulses are also transmitted. Probably an emission which could not be accomplished if they tried to (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9690, March 23 at 0054, steady S9+20 open carrier; I keep a receiver on it and still going without modulation past 0234 when it`s down to S9 fading to S7. What could it be?
Spain could have forgotten to turn off its transmitter after 2300? But another less favorable Eurosig, CRI/Albania on 9570, is only S5-S7 at 0100. It`s much stronger than any of the three 31mb WRMIs. A bit stronger than 9640 RHC but at 0130 CRI/Cuba 9580 is S9+30; 9475 WTWW is S9+20; 9605 Korea/WHRI is about equal to 9690. Could also be a test from Greenville. Nothing around here listed in HFCC B-17 or A-18.
Reminiscent of a previous log two sesquimonths ago as in DXLD 17-52:
``UNIDENTIFIED. 9690, Dec 25 at 0041 past 0100, huge S9+35 open carrier, slight fades, in fact the SSOB, exceeding similar bigsigs from 9395 WRMI S9+30, 9455 S9+25. Seems must be intracontinental, VOA, WRMI or WHRI. At 0050, 9720 RHC is S9+25 but more fading. Surprisingly, CRI Albania 9570 is S9+25/10, while often it`s very weak, so could 9690 be European? Spain maybe left transmitter on after 2300? WRMI has used 9690 in the past too, and now plenty of spare transmitters`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
