Hauser
** CHINA. 11440, Oct 21 at 2354, JBA carrier with flutter, presumably CNR1 jammer against mini-power Sound of Hope nuisance frequency as in EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6840, Oct 21 at 2350, no signal from RHC difference mixing product as heard by Chris Smolinski yesterday. Transmitters causing it, 11880 and minus 5040 in English are still on and strong. Note in my last report, first reference mis-stated 11880 as 11840, which is a Spanish frequency. Now it`s much weaker than 11880; 11760 is VG; 11670 at 2353 is dead air. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.

It so happens that Wolfgang BÃschel was checking for 6840 at exactly the same time: ``CUBA intermodulation from Bauta site: nothing heard on 6840 kHz tonight 2350 UT on Oct 21, neither in Michigan, nor in Edmonton Alberta SDR units. 11880 kHz though was powerhouse signal from Bauta``. So sometimes 6840 happens, sometimes not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 22 at 0457, despite ACI from 6105 Japan via France, RHC English is already on early, wrapping up hour, // 6000, but 6060 is not on yet. 6145 & 6165 are still gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Sunday Oct 22 at 1349, missed hearing `En Contacto` but outro credit roll includes guiÃn by Arnaldo Coro, which means he`s writing script for whole show, and his voice occupies much of it along with the YL co-host. No longer Manolo de la Rosa for many months, altho weekly promo e-mails for show from Spain claim he`s still doing it. Anyone know what happened? Is he OK and merely retired/jubilated? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, Oct 22 at 1402 still no signal from CRI relay; 1404-1405* open carrier, on and off a few more times, finally stays on and starts undermodulating English at 1407. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. We miss the opening news propaganda from CRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7181.556, Oct 22 at 0505, JBA carrier, surely VOBME, which in the last few DXLDs has been reported on .553, .555, .561. Nothing now circa 7140 from the other VOBME (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 6165, Oct 22 at 0458, very poor talk and music, 0459 seems English, timesignal to 0500 and off*. Always checking in case RHC show up here again by mistake, and would rather hear Chad reactivated, but 0430-0500 is NHK Russian via Nauen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Oct 22 at 0503, lovely Orthodox singing, for Sunday morning service from ERT, violating Separation of Church and State, S9+10/20. I doze off to it but still going at last rouse 0604 (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9690, Oct 22 at 1330, very poor talk, presumed AIR GOS on, and barely propagating today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9524.936, Oct 22 at 1327, very poor signal, trace of talk, allegedly English hour from VOI, shifted once again back to 1-kHz-lower off-frequency after a spell just below 9526; so two different transmitters? If not, how to explain these? Atsunori Ishida says ``9525`` resumed Oct 21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 1120, as late as 1320 UT Oct 22, KMOX in solid with local temp 70 already, no sign of 10 kW daytimer, KETU Catoosa, which is entitled to start 7 kW Critical Hours at 1230 UT in October (1300 UT in November); at 1323 UT, SAH against KMOX starts, maybe this if not TX.

KETU pattern is major lobe south, minor lobe north, nulls toward St Louis and Portland
https://transition.fcc.gov/Bureaus/MB/Databases/AM_DA_patterns/1553082-121213.pdf
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, Oct 22 at 1316 UT, steady open carrier/dead air atop the graveyard jumble, no doubt my semi-local on groundwave, WBBZ Ponca City, failing to modulate (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Oct 21 at 1711 UT, KOSU RDS just says: _CRAZY__ / _SMART__ / _RADIO__ --- certainly a unique slogan, for easy meteor scatter IDs, often uttered too. Refers to split personality as a mostly-talk ``smart`` public radio station daytime, vs various ``crazy`` never-classical indie music nighttime, the latter supposedly financially listener-supporting the former (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, Oct 21 at 1710 UT check, KLGB-LP Enid is off again, uncovering presumed marginal Kansan full-power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 27, Oct 22 at 1502 UT, KFOR-TV instead of `Meet the Press` shows static ID slide; 1505 UT joins MTP, but inaudible due to rapid clicking sound. This is the case both via the ether, and via Suddenlink cable. 1507 UT, channel ``4`` desperately cuts to a replay of own local interview show `Flashpoint` which just ran hitchless at 1430-1500 UT, initial guest being oil tycoon and Drumpf psychophant Harold Hamm, who blew off Enid when he got too big a billionaire. By 1530 has rejoined NBC with video and audio. MSNBC no longer repeats entire MTPs at convenient 18 UT, but instead inconvenient 22 UT.

Maybe related to storms last night. All four major TV stations were in wall-to-wall weather coverage for most of prime time, blowing away silly footballgames or to their secondary channels. A minor tornado hit the River Wind Casino in Norman. But KFOR was not having any transmission problems then (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday Oct 22 at 1352, REE big open carrier already, 1355 earworm IS. By 1356, // 17715 is still off, but 15520 is good, and 21620 JBA carrier. By 1716 during silly ballgame, 17715 is also on for four out of four (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN. 7206.004, Oct 22 at 0507, JBA carrier, presumably Omdurman which periodically jumps 1 kHz above nominal 7205; but I rarely hear any modulation from it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1900 monitoring: confirmed Saturday October 21 at 2130 on WBCQ, 9330.3v-CUSB, fair. Missed checking what should have been the first airing this week on WRMI, Sat Oct 21 at 2300 on 11580. The next airing, UT Sun Oct 22 at 0200 on 11580 was: JBA carrier. Confirmed UT Sun Oct 22 at 0326 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, with Antarctica item, so just started late about 0324; good signal despite storm noise level here. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Sat Oct 21 at 2130, WBCQ is on early with monthly European Music Radio, a semi-hour of rock music not otherwise available? Evidently on third Saturdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3264.836-AM, Oct 21 at 2339, JBA carrier in storm noise, presumably WBCQ`s new frequency. While I`m at it, precisely the others:

5130.360-AM, also very poor; 7490.003-AM at S9+20; at 2346, 9330.310v-CUSB, Blalock the Blaster during his additional hour from cassette.

It so happens that a few minutes later, Wolfgang BÃschel was checking these via SDR in Edmonton, different results as they do vary a bit:

``7489.953 at 0002 UT on Oct 22. S=9+25dB.
around 0000-0002 UT noticed an empty carrier on v3264.9 kHz, but only few seconds on air.
5130.366 only tiny S=5-6 signal at 0012 UT.
9330.264v-CUSB noticed on 9330.301 kHz at 0024 UT on Oct 22. S=4-5 -99dBm tiny in Edmonton Alberta`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5985, UT Sunday Oct 22 at 0500, Qur`an, nicely sung --- what`s this, Algeria? NO, WRMI! Part of the World Music rotation, instead of Brother Scare or Paul Walker during this extended hour until 0600; as made clear by seguà at 0503 to hilife music, 0505 that German beer-hall(?) song.

There is an understation, which is really in Arabic, CRI via Albania from 0500, but it sure won`t be Qur`aning. Back at 0458, it was only a gospel huxter in English on WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5810, Oct 22 at 1348, WEWN Spanish, and 15610 algo presumed English with both transmitters active. Per EiBi, the QSY time for Spanish to 12050 is 1400, and for English from 11520 to 15610 not until 1500. After 1400, 12050 is indeed on. At 1716, 12050 is VG, and 15610 VP, as usual without some sporadic-E boost, rare at this yearpart even as low as this band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Oct 22 at 1311 UT, KYND Cypress TX is still playing the 73-second loop trying to get someone to lease the station; axually atop weakened KOKC now. Please, someone call Bill Turner at 281-373-1520 and get some more pertinent programming upon it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1589.942 approx., Oct 22 at 1307 UT, sermon in English; low het = about 60 Hz hum often audible against 1590.00 stations. I previously traced this on June 12 to KMOZ, 1000/85 watts U1 in Rolla MO, a Bott station, when it was on 1589.90 in the middle of the night at 0500 UT. Since then I don`t find a single other report of KMOZ on the IRCA or NRC lists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1710 kHz, Oct 22 at 1205 UT, JBA talk, 1207 UT music, vs storm noise level from LA/TX, no doubt still Radio RetÃn lo que Tienes, BÃton Rouge pirate, as heard much better Oct 20. JBA carrier still audible at 1304 UT.

This thing is obviously more than a 10-watt talking house transmitter as it gets out to at least 910 km/565 miles to Enid; or 856/532 to Terry Krueger in Clearwater FL; thus I am surprised that since publicized on World of Radio 1900, and in DXLD yg, and my own previous log, I have seen NO other reports of it, at least in the ABDX, IRCA and NRC lists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1813 UT October 22

Glenn Hauser logs October 20-21, 2017  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 21 2017

Hauser
** CUBA. 6840, Oct 21 at 0019, no signal from RHC; checking out tip from Chris Smolinski, Maryland at 2347 Oct 20: ``RHC throwing out a decent spur on 6840 kHz, parallel to 5040 with their EE programming. I wonder if Arnie will QSL this? :)`` I replied:

``Chris, That would be 11840 minus 5040, the only two English frequencies at 23-24, after which 11880 goes off, and so would 6840. Unheard by the time I checked. Glenn``

I vaguely thought 6840 had been reported before but can`t find any such logs in my archives. Possible only at 22-24 while both 11880 and 5040 are on air, the second hour in English (and presumably English moved up to the first hour on 11880 once Arnie gets around to B-17 changes sometime in early November; while 5040 moves English to 00-01).

** CUBA. 5040, Oct 21 at 0058, RHC dead air, maybe just between languages.

6000, Oct 21 at 0551, this RHC English frequency is off, still on 5040, 6060, 6100, and still gone from 6145 too. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9690, Oct 21 at 1426, no signal from AIR GOS sesquihour in English. Some other Asian signals are making it. Not the first time a no-show here from 1330, so I wonder if really on the air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-LSB, Oct 20 at 2336, some kind of dramatic speech with continuous music bed, little change in pitch, but making it hard to tune accurately; movie soundtrack? These logs are headed KIPM, but SSTV later IDed it as Pee Wee.
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,38115.0.html

Brian D in NY logged what I was hearing as ``KIPM Relay 6950 LSB S5 in NY, 2332: Alan Maxwell announcing "9 Audio Signals From Outer Space" episode`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 21 at 1428, traces of CW vs CODAR pulses to S9; by 1429 faded up slightly, enough to confirm it`s K6FRC over and over in HIFER beacon ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1900 monitoring: confirmed Friday October 20 at 2334, the 2330 on WBCQ 9330.264v-CUSB, poor-fair. Also confirmed Saturday October 21 at 1440, the 1431 on HLR, 7265-CUSB, via UTwente SDR: well audible atop East Turkistan for a change! But some deep fades; improves toward 1455. ``Hamburger Lokalradio`` ID inserted immediately at end while mixing with ChiCom timesignal, and off.

[BTW, preceded by `Media Network Plus`, but it`s hard for me to get going by 1400 UT on Saturdays: that may be our best/only chance to hear it (including my extended propagation outlook); various ``MNP`` hours on WRMI, AFAIK, axually contain other PCJ programs. New MN+ episodes are not even audible via the pcjmedia.com website; Keith told me it`s currently only available on smartphones via some app.] Next:

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat Oct 21 at 0001, WBCQ starting `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. He says they are trimulcasting on 7490, 5130, 3265 with 50,000 watts on each, eating up the $ $ to the Maine power company which has been sold off to something in Spain. He sees all the meters spinning, but I cannot hear 3265! unlike previous tests on 3250 which had good signals. 5130.35 is very poor and unusable either. At 0104 already interrupted by a call from Fred, who reports 3265 is 40 over 9, close-in at his New England(?) location.

Slogan ``Free Speech is Alive on 32-65``. I try again at 0047 on the other receiver: now I do detect 3265 but only a JBA carrier, really 50 kW?? Propagation may be degraded. 5130 still VP, and 7490 S9+25 fading to S9. Around 0100 musing that Ramsey may move to 3265, but AW would prefer to get some network show lasting 3 hours on it. At 0105, says Dr Becker is trying to get Alex Jones on 3265! where he can say absolutely anything; AW suggests that WWCR imposes some restrixions on Free Speech. At 0108, 5130+ is still on rather than cutting off at 0100. 7490 is starting to fade down but still the best and only WBCQ frequency for us, axually more like 7489.97. AW endorses Jeff White and George McClintock as good guys. Discussing programming sources, Terry Blalock of Full Gospel Hour is the only one on WBCQ still coming on cassette tapes, but WBCQ has all modes of playback available, even wire recorders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5985, Oct 21 at 0546, what`s this with rock tune? Soon announcement by Paul Walker with a 9- zip code, so must be his old show while still in Alaska getting an unpublicized playback on WRMI; then emits Leader of the Pack and La Bamba. As usual, this frequency is poor, only S5, weaker than the WWCR mixing product on 5980! I see that KIYU by now has removed him from the staff roster:
http://www.kiyu.com/staff.html
but is he really the ``Mike Walker`` doing an oldies show Fridays?

5985 is WRMI-2 at 222 degrees, now scheduled with unspecified, except UT Mondays, System H programming at 0500-0600*. I believe Brother Scare has also been heard during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Oct 20 at 2342, this is the only WEWN frequency on, in Spanish; nothing on 15610 or 11520 English, nor 5810 Spanish yet.

5810, Oct 21 at 0052, now Spanish is on here, VG with some hum, but no English on 11520. Another check at 0552, still no 11520 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3185, Oct 21 at 0538, no signal from WWRBS --- I bet they are stuck on day frequency: Yes, 9370 is still on, very poor S3 but I can tell it`s Brother Scare. Wake up, Dave! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6905-LSB, Oct 21 at 0050, 2-way in Spanish, stronger S8 station says he`s near San Antonio and also mentioning El Paso, so apparently Tejanos rather than Mejicanos. Can`t hear his contact at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1900 monitoring: NOT confirmed at newly scheduled time of 2230 UT Thursday October 19 on WRMI 5850. Instead, like last week, `Yeshua` show played instead, altho it is scheduled at this hour only on Fridays. A mixup in programming of System H vs posted schedule. Jeff White assures me that from now on WOR will be showing at this time on Thursdays. It should be good across North America on the 315 antenna, and improving into the winter with earlier sunsets. WOR 1900 confirmed Thu Oct 19 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.196v-CUSB, fair. Next:

** U S A. 7490.041v, Oct 20 at 0157, WBCQ music and carrier is wobbling slightly, unusual for this one. ID and cut to Brother Scare JIP at 0200, when carrier seems to become more stable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5810 & 11520, Oct 20 at 0051, WEWN remains totally off the air from both Spanish and English night frequencies. Still missing from 5810 at 1129 October 20. What`s wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Oct 20 at 1653, KVOH blasting in at S9+20/30 but without any perceptible spurs or broadband noise field as it was suffering from one week ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 920, Oct 20 at 1105 UT, end townhall.com news, KVEL weather, atop the CCI at the moment, from Vernal UT. 5/1 kW U2, main night lobe aims NE, with a very minor sidelobe sorta thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1040, Oct 20 at 1108 UT, M&W talk in Vietnamese, with WHO nulled, making 28/minute SAH = 0.47 Hz. Still audible at 1122 UT. Figure it`s most likely the Dallas station, which is now KGGR, but its schedule shows nothing but English, not only now but anywhen:

http://www.kggram.com/schedule/
``Monday â Friday
Start Finish Program
Sign On 8:45 AM Great Gospel Music``

Only other possibility, and with ethnic format, is WPBS Conyers GA, which is 50 kW ND daytimer; 5.5 kW CH, NRC AM Log listed as ``Atlanta Radio Korea``. Ditto radio-locator.com but outdated entry for WPBS 1040 showing website http://atlantaradiokorea.com/ now goes directly to WQXI 790! So maybe the 1040 station has now converted to other languages, as this certainly was not Korean!

Atlanta sunrise today is 1147 UT, and official October FCC sunrise is 1145 UT (November: 1215 UT). So what is it doing on air already at 1108? CH would also require it to keep down to 5.5 kW for two hours after sunrise. There is no info about a PSRA for this in NRC AM Log or FCC Correspondence.

Altho not carrying it, tunein.com offers a clue for 1040 as ``Spice Radio``. But that`s old news. Here`s the clincher, from Wikipedia:

``In early 2008, it changed formats to "Spice Radio Atlanta" broadcasting with Desi/Hindi music and talk.

By mid-2009, the station was simulcasting with 1080 WFTD's "Atlanta Radio Korea" programming. The Korean programming of "Atlanta Radio Korea" was then heard exclusively on WPBS and dropped from WFTD which then started carrying Spanish language programming.

When Atlanta Radio Korea, owners of WPBS, purchased WQXI from Entercom and flipped it to from [sic] its simulcast of WSTR on December 15, Vietsong Media, owners of WFTD, purchased WPBS and has flipped the format to Vietnamese radio, as of January 1, 2017`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1330, Oct 20 at 1115 UT, ad for something in Kermit TX, and KCKM singing ID, then C&W music, dominating even the second-order KCRC Enid spur het, and KNSS Wichita. 12/1 kW U2, and October sunrise is not until 1300 UT (November: 1315 UT). I must conclude it is operating illegally with 12 kW ND day pattern; night pattern has a null toward Wichita and Enid. There is nothing about a PSRA in the NRC AM Log nor to be found in the FCC Correspondence file (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1710 kHz, Oct 20 at 1137 UT, screaming gospel huxter in Spanish (I think; can hardly understand a single word), mixed with other loud voices from apparent pentecostal service. Steady S9 signal but undermodulated. I am hearing this only on the R75 with E/W longwire, so no DFing; on the DX-398 tried first, I was only getting some pulsing whine, apparently from some local device. (At 1143 UT I note that 1680 KRJO with West Monroe ad is still in well.)

1710 still past 1140 UT, crowd responses, keeps going past 1200 UT with no pause or ID. I have been looking for this tnx to Terry Krueger`s log from Florida:

``1710 LOUISIANA (PIRATE) Radio RetÃn lo que Tienes, BÃton Rouge. 1014 October 12, 2017. Screaming Spanish male preacher and audience response, parallel live stream. https://www.radioretenloquetienes.com Thanks D. Crawford for the tip. Decent signal. Also in well around the same time on October 14. How long will this one last? (Terry Krueger, Clearwater FL, WORLD OF RADIO 1900, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Current true BR SR/SS times are 1210 UT/2328 UT. Website blatantly claims to be on 1710 AM and also 107.7 FM: Guess what, WTFDA FM Database shows no legal 107.7 anywhere in Louisiana. Address as: ``Iglesia La Nueva Jerusalen, Radio Reten lo que Tiene, Ministerio, Ciudad de la Verdad Monte de Santidad, 8290 A Siegen Lane, Baton Rouge 70810 L.A. [sic] Tel 225-394-3748, 787-909-6199``

``Tiene`` -- sic; are we being familiar or not? Program schedule is rather strange, showing mornings only on: Martes y Jueves 7 a 12 am (but this is Viernes).

The slogan derives from Revelation III:10, in one translation, ``I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown``. Crown? As in skull? I don`t wear any other one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA carrier search: 783, Oct 20 at 0053, presumably Mauritania. Audible only on the R75 with E-W longwire. Checked lower band on 9 kHz steps offset 1 kHz with BFO but only this heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6071.0, Oct 20 at 0546, CFRX 6070 has a het exactly 1 kHz up; strange, never noted elsewhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6165, Oct 20 at 1129 music, very poor with flutter, 1130 no timesignal but announcement. It`s either Thazin Radio, Myin U Lwin, Myanmar, 50 kW, 356 degrees at 0930-1430 in Burmese per NDXC/Aoki; or CNR6, at 1100-1605 in Chinese, 100 kW, 163 degrees from Beijing 491 site. VOV-4 Vietnam also uses 6165 but supposedly not at this hour. I am hearing only one station. No timesignal on the half hour might rule out Myanmar if they do one on their hourtop. WRTH says CNR6 is Voice of Shenzhou, or ``Shenzhou Easy Radio``. Are they both really on air at 1130? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
