Glenn Hauser logs January 11-12, 2018

Friday, January 12 2018


I hear that my last couple of reports got multiplied into up to a dozen copies some people received. Assuredly I sent out only one each, as usual, but yahoo thinx that`s not enough. Please don`t blame me. I myself received back no more than three from the DXLD yg.

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 12 at 0700, R. Rebelde is just barely modulated, their jingle cutting thru better than anything. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15500-15510, 15432-15443, Jan 12 at 1424, forget SSB or AM, I start tuning RHC-FM and find I get a clear Spanish signal anywhere across these wide frequency ranges, almost as if AFC were engaged, only problem being a continuous whine; much better than the extremely distorted filthy blobs when tuned in AM.

More of the same emanating from 15370 transmitter circa 15303, 15235, 15033 vs CHR, 14899. When someone else logged these including on 15230, he concluded intentional 15230 and 15370 were mixing to produce the others, but NOT in this case. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Jan 12 at 1422, CRI English relay fails to land on the wrong frequency today, 15400, like yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Jan 12 at 0648, JBA but steady carrier from presumed R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGSET)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7345.00, Jan 12 at 0654, RRI English is back on-frequency, clashing equally with BBCWS English via Ascension; after having shifted to 7345.500 last night; whew, but with open frequencies all over the place, there is no need whatsoever for these two to collide (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1912 monitoring: confirmed this week`s first SW broadcast, Thursday January 11 at 2230.5 on WRMI, 5850; good with some fading. For once, I decide to listen to the whole thing; how will it go? Modulation OK except briefly at 2244-2245 some slight distortion, presumably a transmission problem. Signal is not so strong that all editing glitches can be heard. The guy sounds a bit better than usual, less of a ``monotone``. Probably because his larynx has been ``improved`` by phlegm. NOT confirmed UT Fri Jan 12 at 0030 on 9330v-CUSB, again no signal detectable from WBCQ. Next:

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Jan 12 at 0651, WRMI Oldies channels ending 5-minute VOA news relay which must have started at 0646 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 840, Jan 12 at 1400 UT, KTIC ID with temp minus 4, and ``Classic Country 98.3`` with translator call I don`t copy; NRC AM Log had it as K252EG West Point NE and slogan as ``Rural Radio``. The latter applies to a bunch of Nebraska stations including KRVN 880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, Jan 12 at 1405 UT, Huron ads following ABC News, i.e. KOKK in SD; temps -5 F, windchill -24. Over KGYN OK easily nulled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1710 kHz, Jan 12 at 0706 UT, soft strumming guitar music, some pirate other than BÃton Rouge LA? 0710 UT announcement sounds like Spanish, and I hear a ``siete`` mentioned, perhaps referring to their FM frequency (not really busted and off?). By 0718 UT voice changes to something more strident, which would be the usual gospel huxter from Radio RetÃn lo que Tienes. Certainly holding on to what they`ve got, legal or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1606 UT January 12
