Hauser
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:

Sat 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** 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

Correcting typo in time, not 0175!

** ROMANIA. 7345.500, Jan 11 at 0715, RRI in German, S9+10/20 --- on split frequency! Finger must have slipped on their keypad, striking 5 twice. Must have been a terrible hit/het against BBC Ascension 7345.00 before 0700 when both are in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Jan 11 at 1915, RAE German relay is again AWOL for the fourth day, instead apparently World Music default fill, and not // 9455 in Oldies as evidenced by Bob Biermann announcement there. Both poor signals here at midday. Another check at 2005, when 9395 is supposed to be RAE in Italian: NO, the Cayman Islands promotional song is playing from the World Music loop! And now 9455 is VORW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRIA. 11955, Jan 11 at 1514, S9+10 of YL in uncertain language, during some glitches on the carrier. HFCC shows it`s AWR Turkish, 300 kW via Moosbrunn, this semihour daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 11 at 0724, R. Rebelde is JBM with hum. Wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15506, 15438, 15303, 15235 approx., Jan 11 at 1521, the primary four dirty distorted spurblobs from RHC 15370, this time about 67-68 kHz spaced, and again providing much more readable audio if tuned in FM mode, still with some crackle & whine. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15400, Jan 11 at 1522, while checking out the spurblobs from 15370, surprised to find CRI English relay here instead of 15700! Someone hit the wrong number on the keypad, and didn`t notice. The dumb transmitter said, ``OK, if that`s what you really want`` (in Chinese). As usual undermodulated almost suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Jan 11 at 0655, JBA carrier detectable from R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Jan 11 at 1924, WRMI is S9 to S9+10 of open carrier, prior to R. Herwa International, which at 1936 recheck is in Hausa about Boko Haram.

As of 2053 Jan 11, there is not a word (literally) about this on the WRMI programming page, http://wrmi.net/index.php/programming/ altho it was belatedly entered onto the frequency skedgrid, http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs as the only usage of XMTR 10, at 1930-2000 & 0700-0730, but altho still labeled South America, the azimuth has now been corrected from 160 to 87 degrees as appropriate for Africa. Nor is there anything about Herwa, searching WRMI FB. AFAIK, the only info to the SW community about this service is what I searched out when originally discovered. See DXLD 17-48.
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1748.txt
Let`s take another look at the websites I found:

http://www.international-alert.org/partner/herwa-community-development-initiative
http://herwacdi.com.ng/

It was not 100% certain these are related to the SW broadcasts, as nothing was said about them. STILL nothing; own website, the second one, has not been updated for 11 months. Unfortunately, this service emerged just a little too late to make an entry into the WRTH 2018.

BTW, except for the original Radio Africa service outlier way up on 21525, 11530 is now the highest WRMI frequency in use. Daytime listeners in North America would be best served on the 13 or 15 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7345.500, Jan 11 at 0175, RRI in German, S9+10/20 --- on split frequency! Finger must have slipped on their keypad, striking 5 twice. Must have been a terrible hit/het against BBC Ascension 7345.00 before 0700 when both are in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615.066, Jan 11 at 1526, BSKSA with Qur`an, fair signal is the OSOB --- no RHC, no KVOH, and nothing on the other two Saudi frequencies, 17705, 17895, so hard to believe those two are really on the air. O, they aren`t supposed to be on after 1500, while 17615+ lasts until 1600; before 15 the trio are common (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Jan 11 at 0725, SIBC is JBA at S6; JBM from 5025 Cuba helps a bit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1912 monitoring: a reminder that the first opportunity for SWLs to hear this new edition is Thursday January 11 at 2230.5 on WRMI 5850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15740, Jan 11 at 1921, S9+20 of dead air is the SSOB, i.e. VOA GB warming up to jump and take over 15730 in French from 1930. Which has news with an echo, backscatter or longpath? Only other 19mb signal to rival it is 15140 RHC choking on Arabic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9329.648v-CUSB, Jan 11 at 0656, WBCQ with rock music, S4-S5 and no CCI from Cuban numbers station, one of its alternating nights off; no ToH ID, 0703 seguÃ.

9329.648-CUSB, Jan 11 at 1440, WBCQ playing ``William Tell Overture``, which means a back-episode of `Allan Weiner Worldwide` is starting. The Timtron is substituting this week, has found the microphonium, and conveniently announces the date as Sept. 1, 2017.

This frequency remeasured independently and got exactly the same Hz as 8 hours earlier. In case the reply is only one hour, recheck at 1540: ``WTO`` is playing again, which means another `AWW` episode is starting as the theme is only for openings. Try again at 1639, but too much local noise now to hear it. 9329.68 approx., Jan 11 at 1917, WBCQ is still on, but JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WRMI: see ARGENTINA [non]; NIGERIA [non]

** U S A. 5830, Jan 11 at 0719, no signal from WTWW-1, nor on 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775-, Jan 11 at 1920, not even a JBA carrier from KVOH which is supposed to be on past 1900 today. In fact, the entire 16m band is dead. Only 17640 MWV Madagascar might have been making it before 19 and after 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. The frequency for Radio Nigeria, Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB is 15110, not 11600 from 1600 to 1700 UT -- 73! Ivo Ivanov

! Yes, my original log really does show 15110; disregard about 11600 which I somehow had on my mind.

Also in a previous report about Solomon Islands 9545/5020, I mentioned,

``Press reports via DXLD say that SIBC has had to turn off its MW 1017 transmitter due to dispute with power company and government over what`s an essential service, and rely only on SW with diesel generator for nationwide coverage!``

Except the SIBC MW frequency is/was 1035, while 1017 is Tonga, which I mix up in my mind without checking. Glenn
