Hauser
** CANADA. 350 kHz, Dec 12 at 0728 UT, dash and NY, 400-watt ND beacon
at Enderby BC, 2313 km = 1437 stmi from here. I rarely hear any from
that area. But where`s RG from WRWA, OKC? Not noted.

356 kHz, Dec 12 at 0727 UT, dash and ZF, 3800 watt ND beacon from
Yellowknife NT --- new good catch for me; dozing off I wrote down 366
instead but also noted a mix with ODX, Ord, Nebraska, and both of them
are really on 356. YK is 3113 km from Enid = 1934 statute miles.

362 kHz, Dec 12 at 0726 UT, dash and SB, 500-watt ND beacon from
Greater Sudbury, Ontario.

366 kHz, Dec 12 at 0721 UT, dash and YMW, 500-watt ND beacon from
Maniwaki, Quebec (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Dec 11 at 0756, S9+10 of dead air from RHC English, but
charitably I shall assume the final repeat had just wound up (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13633 & 13767 approx., Dec 11 at 1538, weak spurblobs from
RHC 13700, some music better audible in FM than AM. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2012, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 12 at 0147, RHC is suptorted starting `Arts Report`
with ``Chariots of Fire`` theme; 6145 not yet on. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13769 & 13631, Dec 12 at 1437, spurblobs from RHC 13700, and
also second-orders audible around 13562 & 13838, at ~69 kHz intervals.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** INDIA [and non]. 9445, Dec 11 at 2153, some Indian music on fair
signal will have to do, since 9420 Greece is occupied by silly
ballgame (and too 9690 modulating Spain). And 11820 Sa`udi Qur`aning
manages only a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 6155, Dec 11 at 0757, chime IS, VP, W&M in Korean; but
it`s the 0800-1000 KBSWR direct in Japanese, listed as 100 kW ND
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9765, Dec 11 at 2155, S9-S7 with flutter in Brasuguese,
ending the MWV hour citing a website or e-mail (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11550, Dec 11 at 1923, the dulcet tones of Josiah,
anti-Christ YHWH pirate, S3-S4; ex-11650 as heard a couple days
previous. 2145 recheck a JBA carrier, but now likely RFA Saipan which
had been in a Korean break at 1900-2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2012, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 kHz, Dec 12 at 1428 UT check, yes, our only local
NDB, EI, 25 watts at Woodring is JBA on the air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820+, Dec 11 at 2155, JBA carrier from SBA Qur`an
service; no signal at all, Dec 12 at 2145 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 365 kHz, Dec 12 at 0722 UT, ND beacon HQG mixing with
something else; 25 watts from Hugoton, Kansas. I was tuned to 363-USB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11720, Fri Dec 13 at 2105-2200, finally I listen to an
entire `Music Time in Africa` at its secret time on VOA Grimesland-B.
About as close as possible to SINPO 55555, but due to very slight
occasional selective fading distortion, would strictly have to make
it 55544. This could be my napping hour, but no way, not soporific:
not only is hostess Heather hyper, so is the music; is there any such
thing as hypo African music? Breakneck rhythm and pace thruout. I am
no ethnomusicologist, unlike Heather Maxwell, PhD, but I would say
it`s almost all contemporary, not much different from what you would
hear other days of week on `Africa Beat`; not traditional, not folk.
At 2157 the final tune is an `Oldie` from Mali, 1995.

Come to think of it, hardly a female voice to be heard either among
the musicians performing or interviewing. After this, I`m pretty well
exhausted, altho have been lying down amid earphones for an hour,
enjoying the excellent audio and modulation level on the S9+20/30
signal, nevertheless directly off the back of the antenna. At closing
she gives the times as: on streaming Sat & Sun 1505 & 2005; on SW, Fri
0905, Sat & Sun 0905, 1505, 2005, 2205! She never includes this very
broadcast, which is our best and only chance to hear it direct..
Here`s a low-res portrait and brief bio of H.M.:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Dec 11 at 0754, S9+10 of dead air again from WRMI
instead of SMTV: must be mis-programmed this way. This time I keep
listening, and at 0759 Jeff WRMI ID fires, and 0800 into RAE beat and
Japanese opening as scheduled, 285 degrees aimed right at Pearl
Harbor, not Yokohama; and PNG beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. RF 25 via Suddenlink Cable 9, Sunday Dec 8 at 1400-1530 UT,
KWTV with `CBS Sunday Morning` --- must-see TV for me I have watched
every week for sesquidecades. Normally I start a sesquihour video
recording, so I can doze some more, not worry about missing anything;
and be able to zap all the commercials on playback. Doing it by timer
is risky since sometimes KWTV blows it away for BREAKING NEWS or
WEATHER, at best shunting it to their sub-station KSBI. On Dec 8
however, I set the timer, and also the cable box to turn on the
correct channel at the correct time, instead of leaving it on all
night; it did, but turned out there was no audio recorded, only video!
Unknown why. I could have watched closed captioning for a sesquihour,
but as a hearing person prefer the A/V method.

So before recording over that tape, as a last resort I go to cbs.com
where one may play the whole show (if you hurry up). Cable`s on-demand
video funxion has lots of stuff from CBS and many other networx, but
never CBSSM! The timer on that shows it`s only 56+ minutes long not
counting the commercials. But when playing we find that strings of ads
are inserted at every break, most of them duplicated from one time to
the next, and poorly edited cutting out some of the program content.
Not the same ones which would have been on the original broadcast.
Most annoying, and no fast forwarding or skipping them here. But at
least I get to hearsee most of another great program. Bottom line:
avoid watching CBS SM at cbs.com if at all possible.

I never buy coffee-table books, except maybe at a thrift store, but a
large collexion of this show`s Sun-symbol art at high resolution would
make a great one, several new ones each week and apparently never
duplicated. Several years ago I suggested this, but they seemed
uninterested; rights? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3240, Dec 11 at 0744, JBA carrier with flutter, as if
something from E Asia rather than a local artifact or harmonic; but
nothing listed in EiBi, Aoki, or HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4651-USB, Dec 11 at 0748, VP brief YL contact,
presumably air traffic control but nothing listed in EiBi. My 2002
Klingenfuss book says it`s an AMS = Aeronautical mobile service,
frequency which we already know, but for details go to
http://www.ute-monitor.org/aerolist
I try that 17 years later and instead wind up on a German site,
something about financing! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, Dec 11 at 0110, RAE via WRMI Spanish about
Argentina with porteño accent; there was big news there today but
seemingly not about that right now. Fair signal here but never very
good aimed south, but more than the JBA carrier. See also USA [and
non] WRMI (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13632 & 13768, Dec 10 at 1509, spurblobs from RHC 13700 which
is S9+10 with music; 68 kHz above and below, and much weaker
second-order+plus circa 13836, S4, better detectable in FM than AM.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Dec 10 at 1514, CRI Plus relay is S9+20 of dead air;
something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 10 at 2353, RHC Spanish on earlier than before; it
was not on at previous check 2328. Anyhow, WRMI is already on 5800
contrary to own skedgrid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Dec 11 at 0314, RHC is S9+20 of dead air in English;
while // 6000 is same at S9+30. These are supposedly two different
sites so problem must be upstream like in the STLs, studio output.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. Last time I computed the possible leapfrog mixing products of
the Bauta RHC frequencies on 49m. This time, where could land the
Quivicanes/Titanes, i.e. 6000 RHC with CRI relay first on 6180 at
0100-0300, then 5910 at 0300-0500:
6000 & 6180: 6360 and 5820
6000 & 5910: 6090 and 5820
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Dec 10 at 2020, VOG music and talk are S9+10 but
unusually overmodulated, distorted. Don`t station operators monitor
how their own signal sounds off the air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.923V, Dec 11 at 0248, music weak off-frequency
after WRMI 5010 0200*, no doubt RNM signature. Is also slightly
unstable, wavering. Now if we could pinpoint the LAH to WRMI after
2300 when RNM is not expected to be on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MALI. 15125, Dec 10 at 1731, S7 to S9+10 echoey Swahili, the SSOB
except for 15140 Cuba; I bet it`s CRI via Bamako: Yes, as scheduled
this hour, 100 kW eastward. Figured there would be a // on 13 MHz, but
none found; later found listed at 13645 per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 10 at 2303 and 2328, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski
under wall-of-noise Cuban jamming against nothing else; and retune at
2354 to catch the timer cutoff at 2354:59*, which is 8 seconds earlier
than last check 4 nights ago December 6 until 2355:07* = averaging 2.0
seconds slippage earlier per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 6020-6025-6030, Dec 10 at 0752, DRM noise, whence? HFCC
shows Voice of Russia at 0600-1000, 100 kW, 34 degrees from K/A =
Komsomol`sk/Amure in DVR, at that azimuth onward to N America. First
time I have noticed any of these new DRM tests(?) from Russia,
supposedly domestic programming not revived external VOR. Tho I have
not sought them out deliberately. Aoki/NDXC instead designates this as
GRFC with music, not only at 06-10 but also at 20-22 & 01-06 daily.
Komsomol`sk sunset was 0648, so only now is it getting into nighttime
there. The earlier broadcasts would be in local daytime intended for
domestic coverage. (Romania also emits DRM around 6025 at 1700-1757)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 13590, Dec 10 at 2000, tune-in to open carrier and soon
off* - AGM is scheduled 1900-2000 in English, a.k.a. VOA (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.043, Dec 10 at 2025, Qur`an JBA from SBC,
signature off-frequency. First time audible at all in a week or more;
was off or just not propagating? Still not enough for lullaby
listening; and our alternative Greece is distorted, q.v. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Dec 10 at 2006, REE is S7-S9 of dead air; stronger
than 11940 also DA; and at 2009, S7-S9 of DA on 9690. Recheck 2301,
all three are *still* in dead air, and 11685 also detectable JBA
carrier. Something`s very wrong at REE. Could the powers that be not
know the Noblejas transmitters are running for hours with no
modulation?

Mike Bott also reported to the WOR iog yesterday Dec 9 at 2216 UT:
``REE 9690 --- Sounds like some technical issue occurring at REE this
evening. Nothing but static being transmitted peaking at S9+10 here in
central Ohio. Seems to be the same issue heard 2 days ago. Verified on
multiple Kiwis and Utwente. -- Mike`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Dec 10 at 0753, S9+10/20 of dead air from this WRMI-5,
again, during SMTV block. RAE in Japanese is supposed to start at 0800
weekdays; unknown whether it came to life by then. But at best 5950 is
undermodulated, and 285 degree beam is far off targeting Japan (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5800, Dec 10 at 2303, WRMI is S9 but
undermodulated in Spanish, 2328 music, presumably SMTV and not on 6060
per misleading skedgrid. Could be on 6060 as RHC is not up yet, rather
a JBA carrier from Zahedan or Chengdu. RHC expected before 0000, and
in fact already going at next check 2353. See also ARGENTINA [non].
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Strange things are happening around here on 87.7-88.0
MHz; extremely intermittent big carrier, some with tones, enough to
QRM reception of 88.1 KWOU on home radios, like around 1445 UT Dec 10.
These I suspect are from malfunxioning K202BY Family Radio Enid
satellator, which has not been on 88.3 even with a dead carrier for
months now.

87.7 or 87.9, on caradio along west Garriott in Enid around midday Dec
10, such as 1827 UT, gospel/country music for a few minutes. Maybe
winter sporadic E from a Franken FM circa channel 6 analog audio
frequency? Maybe a local Xmas display, but stayed too long likely to
come from another car`s RF feeder. Earlier had a split-second like a
meteor burst, a Geminid? That shower peaks Dec 13-14 (Glenn Hauser,
