[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 4, 2018

** ANGUILLA. 11775, March 4 at 1439, PMS is on again; had not heard this or 6090 for several days, extremely sporadic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 12040, March 4 at 1437, YL preacher is somehow correlating ski-boarding with prayer, something new here? Is stronger than 12065 WEWN English. 1450 ``How Great Thou Art`` choral hymn and more sermonizing, now heavy fading. 1455 outro as `Sounds of Hope` with from Box 911701, St George UT 84791; and 1456 Reach Beyond Australia ID.
HFCC March 2 shows KNX is registered here entire B-17 season, 1300-1500, 100 kW, 310 degrees in Hindi! More specifically, WRTH 2018 page 457 shows Hindi on 12040 is ONLY Wed at 1300-1330, Monday at 1315-1330, while among other languages English was not on 12040 at all!
Much more specifically, Aoki/NDXC dated 4 March shows RBA English on 12040 is ONLY at: 1415-1445 Mon/Wed/Sat; 1430-1445 Tue, 1445-1500 daily. So that`s wrong too; on Sundays only before 1445, it`s supposed to be Hindi. Obviously, RBA keeps jumbling its programming, without any consistent, reliable times for e.g. English. BTW, earlier at 1200-1300 the gospel huxter on 12040 is KTWR in Burmalangs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5040, UT Sun Mar 4 at 0658, RHC jazz show is OK now without crackle, which seems to be confined to the earlier English hour at 00-01, why? Something`s not wrong at RHC. BTW, expect timeshifts of some programming and transmissions already in one week from March 11 with the imposition of Yanqui DST (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15520, 15445, 15295, 15220, 15152, 15080, 15010 approx., March 4 at 1430, RHC-FM spurblobs now 70-75 kHz apart from 15370-AM. Closer ones demodulate OK in FM, further ones JBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC. `En Contacto` runs until proper 1450 this Sunday despite Arnie`s breakneck pace; he writes the script, including what anchor Marta R?os says, and outro alleges his contacto with the studio is fibre-optic. It still sounds like a lo-fi phone-up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA [non]. Now we have a chance to compare the two Dandal Kuras, as David Smith explained separation into adjacent frequencies.
5960, March 4 at 0527, African percussion, VG S9+10; 0532 mentions Maiduguri several times (Nigerian city original HQ of DK). 5960 has better modulation than 5950 below. 5960 is still on at 0601, and poor at 0649. Info from David Smith said his new Chad-based service is still on 5960, i.e. at 05-07 via Ascension. It is still also officially Dandal Kura, but in process of transitioning to Ndarason Radio International. So would we ever hear IDs as NDI any more?
5950, March 4 at 0527, African talk about Nigeria, Boko Haram, also S9+10 but softer sound. 0530 now dead air, but up to S9+20 and steadier than before; 0533 seems to be switching around to different bits of feed sources, like tuning a satellite or internet receiver, alternating with dead air; no hums, anyway. 0535 talk and DA; 0543 still modulating on and off. Off the air by 0601. Info from David Smith was that 5950 at 05-06 is the Maiduguri-based original Dandal Kura, via FRANCE. And also 7415 at 06-07:
7415, March 4 at 0602, now this one is on, but very poor with hum; at 0649 still VP but heavy hum, worse than Ascension would suffer, so maybe it is really ISSoudun, FRANCE as alleged. Is not // 5960 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 4070-AM, March 4 at 0439, pirate music at S9+10, off at 0500 recheck. These say it was X-FM from as early as 0302:,40855.0.html
Turns out that there was more 4 MHz activity, including Pancho Villa on 4065, 4035; unIDs on 4065, 4080. By my full scan at 0523, nothing doing on 4.0 MHz band except TGAV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 15390, March 4 at 1631, REE defective transmitter is still off, leaving 15500 and presumed 9690 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** UGANDA [non]. 15239.93 approx., Sunday March 4 at 1625, JBA talk on signature off-frequency of Radio Munansi via WWRB; may have started circa 1500 like last Sunday but didn`t get around to checking it earlier.
Wolfgang B?schel also reports it today: ``Noted at 1656 UT on 15239.932 kHz today Sunday March 4, best signal in Alberta Canada remote SDR post, S=9+50dB signal on antenna selection switch to >'30dB ATT'< At 1704 UT 11.8 kHz in peaks and during music play, but only very small band of 5 kHz during spoken female voice part.``
Kai Ludwig replies: ``All this talk comes from the telephone. You can compare with the source, which is obviously one of the streams from
although the WWRB transmission runs more than one minute behind what I get. Transmitter modulation is not bad at all.
Signal strength here in Europe is shortly after 1730 more or less on a par with, or perhaps on average a bit weaker than, co-Tennessee 15825. Which in fact means: Too weak for "ordinary" listeners. Kai``
** U S A. 329 kHz, March 4 at 0716 UT, ND beacon PMV, from Plattsmouth, Nebraska, 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1919 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday March 4 at 0436 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, 19 minutes into show, which means it started circa 0417. Some ACI from LSB hams on 1858 and 1865. No reports yet of Sun 1130 on 9485 HLR. Next:
Mon 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430   WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1920?]
Tue 2130   WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1920?]
Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 5129.82, March 4 at 0500, checking WBCQ in case Area 51 carry some Pancho Villa; instead, GCN Network ID ``the --- leader in talk radio``, news of storms and other headlines; by 0525 it`s some talkshow, unseems piratical, presumably still plugged into GCN, and not yet back to Brother Scare. Another check at 0602, now it`s BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085 and spurs 5072.1 & 5097.9, March 4 at 0657, WTWW-2 is still on; I had noticed earlier in evening it was still running some music after Ozarx 0230+. Now, it`s S9+40 of dead air except for big hum. Did it run all night with nothing? Not rechecked until 1423, a strange hour for 5085 to be on, as a Ted hamshow is running, interviewing the CFO of the Dayton Hamvention, debunking rumors like moving to another site, and assures it is not competing with other major ham events (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 890, UT Sunday March 4 at 0708 UT, surprised to hear Jim Bohannon on WLS Chicago, guest plugging his record guide at Indeed, WLS at
shows Sunday 12-2 am CT is the ONLY time it has JimBo on. Do they pick the best bihour from his 15 hours the previous week? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, March 4 at 0706: 531, 549, 621, 693, 711, 1044, 1215, but almost gone by now as Eurosunrises earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
