Glenn Hauser logs November 11-12, 2017

Sunday, November 12 2017


** BOLIVIA. 5935.0, Nov 11 at 2253, JBA carrier a few minutes before WWCR blast, again raising the question whether it`s R. Yura, no definite logs lately, or just Tibet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 6089.89v, Nov 11 at 2246, S8-S9, off-frequency but little modulation; 2250 louder during wailing music but suptorted, and as I listen, varies up to 6089.93. Meant to recheck around hourtop, but not until 2308 when it`s off. Off-frequency minus, distortion, and timing all point to FRCN Kaduna, more often reported in its mornings; anyhow with no Anguillan in the way. But now there is a JBA carrier on 6090.0, probably CNR2, 100 kW southward from Golmud (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-USB, Nov 11 at 2243, pirate music at S9+20; 2247 mentions WBCN, faux-caller on the air with request played twice, for the Funk Soul Brother, ``Right about Now``, beeps, and very repetitive song. 2304 synthyl with quick announcement I miss, but reminds me of Clever Name Radio; and apparently off. Many logs here agree it was C.N.R., including refs to WBCN and off at same time:

** PERU. 5980, Nov 11 at 2252-2257, no signal from R. Chaski, Turkey or anything before *2257:06 ROMANIA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5980, Nov 11 at *2257:06, RRI open carrier on in AM, no IS, S9, converts to DRM noise a few sex before 2300, and presumably modulating that in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 11850, Sat Nov 11 at 2048, YL says ``Take Care of Yourself``, and then interviewing someone. Seems to be a language lesson, for French? Scheduled is VOA via Botswana; schedules contradict about this semihour, whether it`s in French or Hausa depending on day of week.

15580, Sat Nov 11 at 2047, VOA is JBA, too weak to tell if it`s really `Music Time in Africa` as Heather claims to be on during this hour when 15580 is Botswanic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1903 monitoring; as usual, altho not heard at UTwente, the Sat Nov 11 at 1531 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB skips on to England as Alan Gale tells me: ``Hi Glen[n], A much better signal on 7265 kHz today at 1530 GMT, Programme 1903 was
heard right the way through this time, even to the last word; usually China comes on and flattens the last minute or so. Just a pity that it now clashes with KBC since the clock changes``.

I suggested that the first broadcast on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, now circa 2030 UT Saturday, might be audible by skywave now beyond the St Louis area. Checked here at 2047, I do have a JBA carrier altho local noise sources are not off.

Also confirmed Sat Nov 11 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330.013v-CUSB, did not come on until *2229; JBA S2-S4 and still much weaker than 9350 WWCR S9+20, 9370 WWRB S9+30, 9395 WRMI S9+10/20, 9265 WINB S8-S9+10. By 2241 check on the other rx, 9330+ is now R3, S5-6.

Also confirmed Sat Nov 11 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, S9-S7; also confirmed but faded way down, UT Sun Nov 12 after 0200 on WRMI 11580.

Also confirmed UT Sun Nov 12 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, about 7 minutes in so started circa 0421. Next:

Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE

** U S A. 3215, UT Sun Nov 12 at 0049, WWRB with usual far-right conspiracy talkshow, so has made the seasonal shift down from 5050 in A-17, unlike last weekend. Next check at 0200 already off, so expected QSY to 3195 like in B-16, but never shows while BS continues on 3185. WWCR does cut on 3215 just after *0200. Apparently WWRB won`t need 3195 unless it has something to emit after 0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, and spurs 5072, 5098, UT Sun Nov 12 at 0204, WTWW=2. Ted with his ham commercials, and 0205 starting `Theater Organ from the Ozarx` a UT hour later than in A-season. Was on somewhat before 0200 with rock music. Still no activity Saturday afternoon from WTWW-2 on 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0542 UT November 12
