been posted as attachments to the WOR iog. He says it takes about an
hour to do this, once each issue is published. Merci, Jacques!

Sunday, November 18 2018

Hauser
** CUBA. 9720, Nov 17 at 2315, RHC English is still here at wrong
hour, JBM but S9+40, while 5040 is off. Nov 18 at 0014, 5040 is still
off, and 9720 is S3-S4, dead air or just barely modulated? Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 18 at 0647, this RHC English is off and so is 5040,
leaving only 6000, 6060 and 6165 to choose from, still overkill.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 18 at 1439, RHC missing from here, supposed to
start at 1200; still on 15230, 13780, 13700, 11760, etc. during `En
Contacto` with ailing Arnie about some new hamsat launch. Something`s
always wrong at RHC. Recheck at 1705, now 15140 is back on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 5950, UT Sun Nov 18 at 0559, WRMI with Zanotti ID,
0600 WRN ID and opening Radio France International in English dated
November 18, headlines, so this is really a new (almost?) live show,
the last one the English sexion will be allowed to produce in the
morning, so what will occupy this hour from tomorrow? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 11800, Nov 18 at 1441, special-English offering a booklet,
not a Bible, from Frank & Ernest, at a PO Box in NY NY 10016, or 800
#, outro to be sure to include the call-letters of this station ---
but 1444 to dead air and off 1445* with NO c/l nor any ID! Clearly a
domestic show not arranged properly for ISWBC. From HFCC we know I was
extremely lucky to catch a once-weekly quarter-hour eastward from
Nauen. Of more interest, besides an otherwise vacant frequency, what
caught my ear was a short/longpath echo. LP is almost 5 X further than
SP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) F&E: See also USA: WRMI PP

** GERMANY [non]. 15200, Nov 17 at 1828, S9 African language mentions
Bonn, Nigeria several times --- two clues leading right to this hour
in Hausa from DW via FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 11629.756, Nov 18 at 1448, G signal S9-S6 with Qur`an but
interrupted for ordinary Arabic talkbits, as R. Kuwait is still way
off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 9689.909, Nov 17 at 2004 talk in the clear from
VON Hausa, no sign of REE Spain 9690.00 to het it, presumed AWOL again
today. However, an hour earlier, John Figliozzi informed the WOR iog:

``9690 kHz NIGERIA - VoN Abuja very strong and virtually obliterating
REE Spain in English at 1900 UT with discussion about African
elections. SINPO 44444. John Figliozzi, Sarasota FL, Sony ICF-2010,
45' longwire`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RWANDA [non]. 15420, Sat Nov 17 at 1826, African language S9+10.
It`s amid the weekly hour of Radio Itahuka, 250 kW, 320 degrees also
USward from Talata, MADAGASCAR. Even WRTH 2018, page 517 claims the
language is Kirundi, as do online listings even tho it should be
fairly obvious that the no doubt related but distinct Kirundi pertains
to neighboring Burundi; rather than Kinyarwanda in --- Rwanda! BTW,
it`s based in Washington DC. Except for 15140 Cuba, this and 15200 DW
France are the SSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9555, Nov 17 at 1840, ME song poor S4-S5, 1842
announcement. Presumed SBC as longly scheduled for program 1 at 1755-
2300, 500 kW, 295 degrees from Riyadh (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST) See also UNID 11820

** THAILAND [and non]. 9940, Nov 18 at 1414, R. Thailand in English,
S4-S6 poor with flutter and really unreadable despite no QRM.

9940, Nov 18 at 1431 now some otherlang, which per HFCC is FEBC in
Uighur, 100 kW, 323 degrees from Bocaue, PHILIPPINES at 1430-1500.

Q: will Christian Uighurs be less persecuted and brainwashed by the
ChiCom than Moslem Uighurs in East Turkistan? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1956 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria reports:
``GERMANY World of Radio via HLR on 6190 kHz CUSB, Nov 17
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/11/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_18.html
0731-0800 on 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, fair
Wrong frequency announcement: HLR on 7265, instead of 6190 kHz!``

Confirmed here UT Sunday November 18 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, about
5 minutes in, so started circa 0423; good S9+20. Next:
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 to SSE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 5950 to WNW, NEW 9395 to NNW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
0430 UT Monday WRMI 9955 to SSE, NEW 5010 to SSE*

*For a while, the WRMI skedgrid showed 5010, 160 degrees at 0100-0500
duplicating System C on 9955, which would have affected WOR at 0430 UT
Monday and 0200 UT Tuesday --- but as of 1643 UT Nov 18, neither XMTR
3 nor 14 is shown on 5010 during those hours, no hours at all on #3.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Sat Nov 17 at 2304, `Voice of the Report of the Week`
is on this WRMI, John musing how he is having to reduce SW broadcasts
in December due to lack of sufficient funding, but how he will always
promote the SW medium. Major cut will be broadcasts on 4840, which he
says served N American listeners better than any, but apparently too
expensive. He never mentions which *stations* go with which
frequencies, but we know of course 4840 is WWCR --- and I was unaware
he was even on there, not for very long? Says VORW will continue on
5850, 5950, 7730, 7780, 9395, 9955, all WRMIs, which ought to suffice.
4840 is on the Nov WWCR sked with VORW Sat at 7-8 pm CST = UT Sun 00-
01, for one more week. Only from ``John`` as usual suppressing his
surname, which I suppose he would not want me to mention (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sat Nov 17 at 2316, surprised to hear WRMI in Luso
Portuguese --- it`s Frank & Ernest as now scheduled for a quarter-
hour. More F&E: see GERMANY 11800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun Nov 18 at 0229, WRMI again fires the off-the-
wall ``Sonpower Radio`` canned ID just before R. Tirana relay; strange
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Nov 18 at 1408, WRMI is VP in `Wavescan`, so now
confirmed for 1400 Sundays, and also on the System G sked carved out
of mostly-Oldies elsewhen; meanwhile 9395 is BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7490+, Nov 17 at 2311, WBCQ off-frequency-plus
with VP signal now has a het from somestation really on 7490.0 ---
nothing scheduled now, but in previous seasons, BBC has been here from
an Asian site. Otherwise WBCQ lux out with no CCI despite being off-
frequency, which if fixed would at least avoid hets. At 0015 Nov 18,
WBCQ in clear again as I measure it on 7490.165V --- the exact
frequency wavers very slightly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WWCR timeshares 7490 in mornings, but I see WHRI is also registered 47
degrees at 0430-0600, never heard so far, but watch out during that
sesquihour from assuming algo be WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.356V, Nov 18 at 0019, WBCQ poor with music, and still
on the much lower off-frequency than before. 22 hours earlier I had
measured it on .362. We have recently heard it on three distinct spots
around 5130v, so are these three transmitters, or one which keeps
being readjusted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475-, Sat Nov 17 at 2002, WTWW-1 in dead air, finally
2005:46 mod cuts on amid ham net relay via QSO show deviating from
SFAW. Altho 2-way contacts are heard, no sign of SW reception, so
either from VHF or webfeed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Nov 18 at 0643, WTWW-2 is off and still off
after 1400, unlike last night when it was on late, very late with rock
music; very flexible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11820.00, Nov 17 at 1834, upbeat music at S9+10, rather
repetitive, in a loop? 1835 fade down and then another more jazzy
instrumental. Retune at 1858 just in time to hear more music and off
at 1859* without announcement. Not the kind of testing
Babcock/Encompass/Woofferton does. I know it`s not Saudi Arabia since
that one is always significantly off-frequency+plus above 11820, altho
nothing heard from it before or after 1859. Coincidental
simulmonitoring by Mark Coady, Ontario DXA:

``11820 Unidentified at 1832 with someone testing with a loop of light
Europop and light jazz instrumentals with occasional brief breaks in
transmission where a man tried to speak in Arabic then more music and
an OC at 1835 and a man with brief talk in Arabic and back to the
music to 1842 and another bit of OC with a woman trying to talk in
Arabic then back to the music to 1859 and off â Very Good Nov 17

â At first I thought that the music was filler while the Saudis tried
to fix a break in their normal program feed. But the Saudis were there
all along and it was them during the transmission breaks and brief
bits of open carrier and they had the Islamic Call to Prayer in
progress with a poor signal when the carrier was finally cut at 1859.
There were no [sic] announcements during the test so it will be
interesting to see if anyone owns up to it`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

ALAN ROE`S HITLIST UPDATED Nov 17:
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

** BRAZIL [non]. See CUBA 6180

** CHINA. 4870-CW, Nov 17 at 1357, weak CW marker ID as RIS9, rather
than anything from AIR or RRI. Previously logged Oct 12 and March 8,
2018, and UDXF attributes it allegedly to the PLA in Beijing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Nov 16 at 0637, R. Rebelde music is S9+10/20 but
overmodulated and distorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. I
check MW //s which sound OK except for QRM: 1620, and 1180 multi-site
jammers to Radio MartÃ, also with diehard IBOC from far-right
mouthpiece 1170 KFAQ Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 16 at 0630, RHC English is absent from this, but
still on: 6165 poor, 6060 VG, 6000 VG but undermod. 5040 also VG at
0638 check. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6150, Nov 17 at 1353, RHC Spanish on new unlisted frequency,
S9/S9+10. No other frequencies heard now on 49mb; during A-season they
were on 6000, 6100v in mornings. The Nov 12 revised B-18 sked showed
6000 dropped, but had not added 6150. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
First reported yesterday by Dan Sheedy:

``6150, RHC. 1319-1350+ 16 Nov. Weak (// 11760) with ACI from CNR2-
6155. Presumed 1400*, as unheard after that. NF? not on any RHC
schedule I can find -- 11950 is listed 12-14 so perhaps this is an
'extra' frequency, just in case? RHC-6150 is 'funny' since it's not
listed in their B-18 Schedule & doesn't appear to be a "leap-frog/hop
-toad" from anything (Dan Sheedy, Moonlight Beach, CA, "Executive
Satellit"/6m X wire)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Nov 16 at 2106, Radio Martà vs heavy wall-
of-noise jamming, but no more RHC in the mix, which collided for the
last few months of A-18. Neither broadcaster did anything about it,
but the B-18 RHC schedule since Nov 11 has moved its 2030-2400
European service to 15370, saving face by not resolving a
confrontation ASAP. But is it really a good idea, Arnie, to move two
bands up into the winter night? Something`s always wrong at RHC. 15370
comes in well enough here, anyway at first over daypath altho MUF is
falling (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6180, Nov 17 at 0157, CRI English with disposable
Chinese lesson as some transmitters are QSYing before hourtops; VP and
0200 CRI theme music opening another hour. Despite very poor signal,
this is supposedly the NF for 250 kW at 10 degrees Habana relay, ex-
9580, rather than simulcast via Kashgar, East Turkistan, in English
until 02 only.

I`m here because Manuel MÃndez, Spain, reported RNA Brasil as rarely
active on 6180 a few hours earlier, at 2104-2110 Nov 16, instead of on
11780. And Harold Sellers, BC, also had 6180 RNA at 0001-0009 Nov 17,
with some carrier breaks. But it`s totally off by the time I intune,
and nothing on 11780 either, despite habitual sked until 0300* (or
maybe -0200* during their DST?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 5950, Nov 16 at 0633, world news headlines with
undercurrent of annoying rumblenoise, to make them sound more urgent,
ID as `Paris Live` on Radio France Internationale. Via WRN via WRMI.
This English service is almost done for, unless WRN keep replaying an
old 1400 live broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 7245-AM, Sat Nov 17 at 1355, Korean, Shiokaze ID
in passing at S9/S9+10, well over any CCI except the Navy Amateur
Radio Club ham net NCS on 7245-LSB, who seem determined to ignore the
broadcaster. Rick Barton, AZ, reported to the WOR iog on Nov 15:

``7245, JAPAN, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze at 1300 with woman in heavily
accented English talking about Japan, North Korea. Station mixing with
Co-Channel CNR, DPRK Jammer, and some amateur radio traffic - Good Nov
15 Barton-AZ`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 104.1 WBFM, Nov 16 at 2028 UT on caradio, KMGL OKC is
already playing Xmas music, the tune with sleighbells and ending with
a horseneigh; DJ indeed revels in all-Xmas tempformat of Magic 104.1.
I suppose this started NLT Hallowe`en? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Re my previous report of Encompass in Enid:

``Encompass Financial Services, with web presence at
http://www.encompassfinancialservices.net/
is a Tennessee-based company that has nothing to with Encompass
(without addition), cf. https://www.encompass.tv/company/

Such things exist even within one and the same business. In Germany
two supermarket chains operate as Netto, now even in overlapping areas
since one of them has swallowed a competitor. They see no problem in
this situation because one chain has a small "Markendiscount" in its
logo and the other one a dog. Some industry observer ridicules them by
referring in his blog always to "Netto (ohne Hund)" and "Netto (mit
Hund)", respectively. Kai Ludwig, Germany`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. [time was omitted on this a week ago:] 12160,
9395, 9330v, 7780, Sat Nov 10 at 1905, Brother HyStairical has three
stations tied up on four frequencies, also heard in order of
decreasing signal strength: WWCR, WRMI, WBCQ, WRMI. More, more!!!
Bulgaria too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 16 at 2103, no signal from REE North American
service (nor NIGERIA which may have just closed); yet REE is audible
on the other three: 12030 poor, 11940 fair, 11685 JBA carrier. Up to
their old trix, vanishing from one or two frequencies; when 9690 would
have been here best by far (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, November 16 at 2125, I remember to tune in `Music
Time in Africa`, Friday-only program during the only VOA Greenville
hour on this frequency, inbooming S9+30 off the back; hyper Heather
Maxwell mixes older tunes from the 70s with current Afropop, and too
many interruptions for interviews with artists such as Abu Sadiq (sp?)
from Ghana; at least the music keeps playing under the talk --- a
practice I denounce as disrespectful to any music (ditto
applause/cheering before it finishes)! (Except for established program
themesongs) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1956 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
November 17 at 1226 check the 1200 on Unique Radio via WINB 9265V,
fair, just as I am talking about WINB DRM on 7325, 13690. Barely
confirmed Sat Nov 17 at 1531 when I can detect the WOR theme on
Hamburger Lokalradio, 9485-CUSB via UTwente SDR, amid splash from 9490
CRI East Turkistan. HLR signal is no better toward 1556, but less ACI.

** U S A. 5129.362, Nov 17 at 0202, WBCQ JBA carrier is way lower than
usual 5129.83v (or sometimes above 5130), still on air after 7490+ has
closed following AWWW trimulcast; 9330.1v also still on with JBA
carrier. Nothing sked on 5130 UT Sat except 01-02 AWWW; maybe a
special booking or just not quite turned off yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. WBCQ [7490?], `Allan Weiner Worldwide` UT Sat Nov 17 at 00-
01 as monitored by John H Carver, Jr, Indiana:

``Tonight's show started about a minute late as the previous show ran
over. Allan and Angela in the studio in FLA. Comment from Allan that
it was 46 in FLA. Opening comments skirt political things but mostly
about young people in general and the young man that interviewed them
last week for the BBC about the superstation and pirate radio. Also
talk about film making when Allan was a child using an eight mm camera
compared to what young people can do today with cellphones. Then on to
social media. Angela insists that all the young people using social
media are incapable of being social without a cellphone. Touches on
several things including anti war, congress, how both sides need to
get along and work together.

Announces that the Falling Star Radio Network will rise again. Will
hopefully counteract all the right wing ultra conservative radio
stations. Will be run by Allan and Pirate Joe and broadcast on 3265.
Will try for a 24/7 schedule. Special rates for broadcasters similar
to the pirate rates on 5130. Hoping to start broadcasting after the
first of the year but says that he and TimTron have to give the
transmitter a going-over to make sure it can handle 24 hours a day.
Asking for suggestions from listeners. Will not be streamed. Will be
radio only.

No phone calls or emails this evening, just the closing prayer at the
end. Show was off the air at 0200 and 7490 was off the air right after
that. John Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Nov 16 at 0632, WEWN Spanish is S9+10 of dead air, and
still so several minutes later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 17 at 1400, WTWW-2 with song, still on air, after
all-nighter since circa *0200? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9560, Nov 16 at 2101, fair signal of dead air, off at
2102*. HFCC has nothing scheduled just before 2100. Guess it could be
Talata at local midnight setting up for next broadcast at *0315 of NHK
Swahili always well heard here; or more imminently but less likely,
NHK direct prior to *2200 Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)
