Glenn Hauser logs September 21-22, 2022

Thursday, September 22 2022

** ALGERIA [non]. 11985 & 12060, Sept 21 at 1907, still no signals
from scheduled TDA relays via FRANCE, checking SDRs in Africa and
Maryland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, Sept 21 at 2204, R. Cairo is on today, S9+25 into
UTwente, but extremely distorted modulation, useless. This protracted
incompetence at National Media Authority is really remarkable.
Something`s always egregious in Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1600, Sept 21 at 2120 UT, looking for some tolerable AM
band music to nap by, I try KUSH in Cushing, but there`s a talk show
instead! Seems to be MOR, not Biden-bashing like everything else in
OK. 2129 still ID as ``Oklahoma`s Americana Station`` and 2130 back to
Bloomberg Radio, ``Sound Off`` show, giving its frequencies in some
major markets, 99.1, 1130, 106.1, 960, and Sirius XM 119, but no
mention of 1600 or KUSH! NRC DX News of August 30 reported:

``KUSH OK Cushing — Format to C&W (ex-C&W/OLD) (StIntel)`` -- The
`OLD` was ``Americana``, a rather rare format which made KUSH worth
some listening. New NRC AM Log showed slogan ``Oklahoma`s Americana
Station``. U1 5000/70 watts, psra 500. Radio-locator says ``Oklahoma`s
Only Americana Station``, day coverage map finds OKC, Tulsa and Enid
all between its ``distant`` and ``fringe`` contours, but I doubt it
have much of an audience in our three metros.

https://www.1600kush.com/ --- take your pick of slogans and formats,
including Bloomberg Radio. Like far too many radio stations, there
seems to be no plain old program schedule showing what`s on air, when,
hour by hour (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.002+, Sept 21 at 2202, VOT English at S9+45 but just
barely modulated: I have to run UTwente volume at max, a risk if
tuning to anything else, and also local volume at max, just to hear it
at ``normal`` level. 2215 `Review of the Tuerkiyeish Press`; 2344
`Feeling Supreme` repeat about natural remedies for diabetic/insulin
problems. Does not go off circa 2255, but IS, 2300 TS and opening
extra German airing while the sleepyops doze. News, 2314 song; 2334
multi-lingual ID reel, still going past 2344 song. By now mod level
better, can back off a bit, but still under-. 2347 `DYKT` theme and
German version, something about a tower.

Double bonus! Stays on after German too with IS and 2356
Luso-Portuguese IDs, UT Sept 22 *0000 sign-on for another broadcast
not supposed to be on SW at all. I quickly notify the radioescutas io
group that brasileiros are in luck tonight! Sign-on only heard giving
satellite parameters. Too busy to listen closely but usual mix of talk
features and Turkish music, still 0043; 0053 IS and finally cut off
the air as if this were an intentional emission. Bet it won`t be on
tomorrow, but sporadically (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

NEW WOR 2157 should be ready for download early UT Friday September
23, first SWBCs at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330.15v, Sept 21 at 2119, WLCR/WBCQ is OFF also at this
daypart; still scheduled to be aiming English right at me. Ivo Ivanov
thinx it`s only a 50 kW transmitter, not 500, but how does he know?
The last we heard it was the SuperStition 500, off-frequency because
it had to be run by an old substitute driver (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
