Hauser
** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Nov 26 at 0516 check, R. Biafra is on at fair level via WRMI. See USA: WRMI for more about this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9667.62v, Nov 26 at 0122, Voz MissionÃria unstable transmitter now up to here, S6-S4. By 0638 recheck with Brazuguese preaching at S6-S3, it`s too unstable to pinpoint, audibly oscillating roughly between 9677.43 and 9677.50 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 580, Nov 26 at 0622, ``La Rancherita del Aire`` several IDs in passing, greeting listener in Houston. On a radio favoring N/S, alternates with WIBW dominance of frequency. This slogan belongs to XEMU, Piedras Negras, Coahuila. I often hear their ``rancherita`` music at random chex of 580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Nov 26 at 0107, torch song at S8-S9, 0108 Wolverine Radio ID. Pirate pickins have been pretty slim lately, at least when I`m bandscanning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9695, Nov 26 at 1421, big humroar, no program audible. Aoki/NDXC shows this is R. Saudi International, 1358-1558, 500 kW, 55 degrees from Riyadh in Pashto (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615.073, Nov 26 at 1402, Arabic, Qur`an, from BSKSA is off-frequency, which I had not noticed before, while 17705 and 17895 are much closer to nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 9719.991, Nov 26 at 1423, low hum with talk. As far as I can tell this hum is transmitted, not a het with another carrier. NDXC/Aoki shows DW in Pashto, 250 kW, 45 degrees via Al-Dhabbiya (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1905 monitoring: next few weeks are my best chance to hear the Saturday afternoon airing circa 2030v on WA0RCR, 1860-AM near St Louis MO --- and Nov 25 at 2052 UT, I do have a JBA signal vs the noise level which sounds like me. Also confirmed Sat Nov 25 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9329.993-CUSB, poor-to-very poor but definitely on, more audible than usual at 0030 other days of week. Also confirmed Sat Nov 25 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, fair. This frequency fades down and out with the setting sun, and by the next scheduled airing at 0200 UT Sunday Nov 26, 11580 is a JBA carrier, when really checked around 0130 & 0229. Everything on this frequency after 0000 at the latest, should be moved to a lower band in the winter.

Also confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, UT Sunday November 26 at 0430 about Hargeisa, 21 minutes into show so started circa 0409. No reports yet on the Sun 1130 on HLR 9485-CUSB. Next:

Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE [or #1906?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Sat Nov 25 at 2050, weak music from WRMI, matches // 9455 and 11580, so here is another breakaway from TOM on 7780. Updated Nov 23 skedgrid via http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs still shows 11580 only with Startrek Italy during this quarter-hour only. Does this concern the entire 20-21 UT hour? And every day of week? Only monitoring will find out.

Altho improved with more detail than before, especially about what`s really on 9395 & 9455, the WRMI frequency/program grids are still not complete and accurate. What about Radio Biafra, which we have been hearing on 11530 at 05-06 & 19-20; another hour of Brother Scare at 06-07; and even newer Radio Herwa International at 0700-0730? 11530 is still shown for two different transmitters, #3 at 00-02 on 160 degrees to S America, which has long been in use; and now #10 on same beam, but with System D at 05-06 & 0700-0730, System C Overcomer at 0600-0700, but no explanation of what these Sys D blox contain; anyhow, 160 degrees is NOT toward Nigeria. As I`m checking before 1600 UT Nov 26, it seems the last bit on #10 has just appeared, and Jeff White icon is also logged in, apparently in the process of updating it. Soon adds the 19-20 UT block on 11580 as System D, but not what. And nothing concerning the 7780 variations at 20-21 other than TOM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.78, Sat Nov 25 at 2156, WBCQ is starting an hour earlier than usual sked, with The Planet ID & IS loop, S9+25. 2159 singing ID, plug for donations, and 2200 `Tom Call Theater`, this episode ``Dead Horse Beach``. Starts with YL singing ``I Dream of Jeannie``; 2203 dialog starts between M&W, Conrad and Lynn, with surf SFX set on a beach in Salem MA. Wish I had time to listen for the hour, but unplanned. Special bookings really ought to be accompanied by lots of advance publicity. There is still nothing anywhen on the WBCQ program schedule about `Tom Call Theatre`, and several other details are out of date. It was mentioned this week on `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. Here`s John Carver`s full report for Nov 25 at 0100 on 7490:

``Show started pretty much on time with a small delay of less than a minute. One could hear voices very low during the short dead air period. Allan and Angela back to hosting the show for the first time in two weeks. Also the first show of the season from Fla. Opening rant was against the people who oppose tax reform. Allan advocated a passive tax revolt. First phone call fuels the tax reform topic.

After phone call Allan mentions that the original 7490 transmitter that went through a fire a few years ago had been completely rebuilt and been in use for the past couple of weeks. Taxes come up again with the next phone call. After the phone call Allan said the 5130 transmitter had been reworked and repaired and was working better than ever. Talked again about running 5130 twelve hours a day. Also mentioned that no one has signed up to broadcast on 3265 as of yet but that he was hopeful.

Reading of emails began at 0205 with some logs from the Free Radio Weekly. There is a new Tom Call Theater program running over the next few days. Was on the air at this time on 9330. Will be on 7490 tomorrow before Pirate Joe's show [i.e. before 2300 Sat] and again on 7490 on Tuesday at eight I THINK [UT Wed 0100]. I just can't write this stuff down fast enough.

New program, a variety show, will be starting week after next on 7490 on Tuesdays at eight PM. Title is Keeping it...Well, Real? Something like that. Again I apologize for not getting the correct title. Allan mentioned that at the moment he, Angela and Dr. Becker are planning on going to the SWL Winterfest in PA this year in early March. Show was off the air at 0223. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1470, Nov 26 at 0131 UT, ``Kansas Wildcat football`` and fade. There are two KS and two MO stations on 1470, but this:
http://www.k-statesports.com/sports/2015/6/29/_131476204439108399.aspx
shows the only one on their net is KSMM Liberal KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Nov 25 at 0543, R. Biafra Broadcasting From London via WRMI this night is only a JBA carrier, down to the level of relay via France on 7240.

11530, Nov 25 at 1930, quick check just long enough to confirm it`s on amid this hour: yes, VG with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 750, Nov 25 at 0628 UT, mutually nullable with WSB to the east is something from the north with classic rock, soon ID as ``CK750 Classic Hits`` --- except the way I heard it at first was an anagram of hits. It`s the Melfort, Saskatchewan station really callsigned CKJH, supposedly 25/25 kW U4, at night mostly north with a particular notch toward Atlanta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11390, Nov 25 at 1344, RHC is S6-S7 here // 11950, so we have a new leapfrog, over 11670 halfway between. How about in reverse? Yes, also audible on 12230, 280 kHz beyond 11950, but weaker. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

13670, Nov 25 at 1352, another new RHC frequency, S9+10 but suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC.

11760 and 11840 are also on, without participating in any perceptible products, except 11840 always flanked by weaker but clearly audible parasites 11830 & 11850. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 9395, Sat Nov 25 at 1511, WRMI with the tenth anniversary special of Shortwaveservice, good with rock music. Nothing special about rock, which is all over the domestic radio dials.

Since I`m on the noisy computer, it`s more convenient to listen to the // 5845 from Uzbekistan, via UTwente SDR. At 1534, Good signal, more rock but with constant CCI underneath; as Ivo Ivanov pointed out, until 1600 BBC Urdu via ARMENIA is already on here! Why pick such a frequency? UTwente and HFCC find 5840 and 5850 empty, e.g.

At 1539 finally announcement in English about Radio Baltic Waves, Lithuania; 1552 acknowledging some greetings from listeners and vice versa; says at 1600 will go into German, 1630 back to English. 1637 ``Radio Ga-ga``, 1641 talks about English until 1700, recounting visit to Lithuania, ex-Radio Vilnius, and the ``Bloody Sunday`` Soviet invasion of 1991y; 1650 greetings from listeners in Ho Chi Minh City, St Petersburg; 1657 from Alan Gale who is confined to a water bed due to a back injury. One more check at 1740, but it`s in German rather than back to English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Sat Nov 25 at 1500, REE with its early start on weekends, strong enough to tell that modulation is quite distorted, and carrier also unstable. It`s been this way for months, the transmitter now directed toward S America where their greatest audience should reside, duh. 9690 to N America is of course too weak to be usable this early, duh2. Nothing audible on 17715 or 17755. That leaves 15500 best of the lot, but has a propagational echo. It`s aimed exactly the opposite from 9690 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12350-USB, Nov 25 at 1356, 2-way talking over each other since they have trouble hearing each other. Vessel seems to be named ``Solar Flare``, presumably with WCY Lakeland FL, Marine Weather Center. 2016-2017 sked, about due for an update?

** U S A. 12065, Nov 25 at 1340, no signal from WEWN English, nor on other possibles, 15610, 11520 or 9470; but Spanish on 5970 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Hi Glenn -- Correct city-of-license for what you heard on 780 [USB] (Fountain, Colorado), but the KJME calls are on 890. What you heard was KCEG. Both KCEG and KJME are owned by Timothy Cutforth, according to Wikipedia. On evenings when conditions are favorable to the west from here, KCEG can cause a great deal of interference to WBBM. 73, (Rick Dau, South Omaha, Nebraska, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Tnx, Rick; how did I do that?? (gh)

** U S A. 1280, Nov 25 at 1323 UT, KSOK Arkansas City KS playing ``NoÃl2``, 1328 UT ID only as ``103-3 The Mix``, so already Xmasmx is in the mix, but not mixclusively: 1333 UT disco (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13300-USB, Nov 25 at 1354, 2-way in Spanish discussing chocolate. Probably intruders into this aero band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, Fri Nov 24 at 1353, WRMI is in World Music fill, apparently having lost the feed from Argentina in French, or it was short, or maybe aired only the first time at 1300. Familiar steel band tune with drumming added; 1353 ``Cayman Holiday`` cute promotional song (and RMI side business would be glad to book a cruise to there); 1357 ``La Milonga Cha3``; 1359 cut to WNYW-style ID, 1400 into RAE Spanish for ``jueves``, usual upbeat informal opening chatter by M&W, but maybe they got serious later about the missing sub (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Nov 24 at 0528 check, Radio Biafra Broadcasting from London via WRMI this time is much weaker than before, very poor S3-S4, and 7240 via France no better than ever, a JBA carrier. At 0600 switch 11530 to Brother Scare, but I`m not up to check for R. Herwa International again at 0700.

11530, Nov 24 at 1906, the other RBBFL via WRMI is good as usual, with ID, plug for texting; 1908 ``important message`` about the elexion. This all sounds very familiar and would not be surprised if same hour files were being played again and again. (But WRMI server has new ones dated Nov 24 for both Nigerian programs.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Nov 24 at 2125, poor signal in Brazuguese, S4-S6, must be `A Voz do Brasil` mandatory federal show in summer timing, from RNA, which should stay on the air at least until 2200 for this.

Poor as it is, much stronger than the other ZYs now on 25m: at 2124, JBA carriers on 11934.9, 11854.9, 11815; nothing on 11925, 11895, 11764.7, 11735. Is SRDA still active anywhen around 11764.7? Haven`t noticed it for some time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Nov 24 at 2128, RHC is S9+30 but very undermodulated n electronic music; 2128 IS, 2130 opening Portuguese on ``OC, FM, Internet``, so this apparently a semihour when the FMs will not be in Spanish. 15140 was already off; should have had French from 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Nov 25 at 0207, R. Progreso is on at S9+20, altho it was missing last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISSTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 13695, Nov 24 at 1408, Indian classical music, poor, // somewhat stronger 9690, and ID at 1409 as GOS of AIR, more music. Third frequency used to be 11620, but weaker signal sounds like something else. For B-17, AIR HFCC registered on 11620 at this time Delhi in English and Goa in multilingual, but certainly would not be running both at the same time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Fri Nov 24 at 0645, RNZI host seems to be having fun with classical music. As with so much SW programming, relayed from RNZ National, you have to go searching the domestic schedule there to find this segment in NZDT:

``Friday 24 November 2017 7:07 Sonic Tonic - Classics --- Music with magic and mischief spun into an surreal sensation of mayhem and maybe magnificence.`` Maybe worth catching from the start next week? But looks like a one-off, part of a larger variety magazine (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 11720.113, Nov 24 at 1345, talk in SW Asian language, poor S5-S7, significantly off-frequency station I bet is the DHA site in UAE, typically up about 0.1 kHz, as Wolfgang BÃschel often remarx. Yes, HFCC shows DW via UAE at 1330-1430, 250 kW, 45 degrees in Prs & Pus, i.e. Dari and Pashto (The World program about dialects also discussed Dari vs Persian/Farsi: it seems the Dari-speakers in Afghanistan don`t like the name, imposed by the Pashtuns and say they really speak Persian) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5385.5-USB, Nov 24 at 1448 tune-in, AFA7PM is just closing this MARS net; ``M-7-A now a free net`` but nothing further heard in next two minutes. Top Google hit on callsign is:

``USAF MARS - Region VII - Missouri
https://afmars-nc-mil.us/Region7/index.php/state-info-pages/missouri
Jun 19, 2015 - Patrick Mcgillan, AFA7PM - Northeast District Emergency Coordinator (no billeted callsign).``

Second top hit:
``USAF MARS Region VII Leadership
https://afmars-nc-mil.us/Region7/index.php/mars-leadership/division
Jun 8, 2015 - Patrick McGillan, AFA7PM. Region HF Nets Manager``

Yet I can`t find any ham by that surname, on the ARRL/FCC and QRZ.com lookups (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Fri Nov 24 at 2052, barely enough signal from this WRMI on the PL-880 without external antenna to recognize `Wavescan` and // 9455 // 11580. So Fri 2030 is another carve-out from TOM time.

This and a few other secret `Wavescan` times I have discovered inspire an update to:

** U S A. 5085, Nov 25 at 0205, canned WTWW ID not by Ted, and for at least the third night in a row, secular Xmasmx, Xmas Tree song (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 6015, Nov 25 at 0330, ZBC, bit of Arabish music and presumed Swahili talk, probably news on surprisingly good modulation and signal from S9+10 to S8, better than 11735 in the afternoons until 2100*; while Hargeisa, also starting right now on 7120 is but a JBA carrier. ZBC nominal start is 0300; and HFCC shows something else on 6015 until 0345: CNR in Kazakh via Urumqi, 100 kW ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
