Hauser
** CHINA. 11440, June 25 at 1414, JBA Chinese, a regular spot for CNR1
jammer against Sound of Hope.

11460, June 25 at 1414, JBA carrier, surely another CNR1 jammer. Even
as a JBA carrier the primary assumption has to be a jammer, not SOH.

11100, June 25 at 1414, JBA Chinese, CNR1 jammer.

10960, June 25 at 1415, Chinese at S3-S5, much stronger than the 11+
MHz ones. Then I scan WOOB further up:

12190, June 25 at 1419, Chinese at S6-S8, CNR1 jammer.

12880, June 25 at 1419, Chinese at S5-S7, CNR1 jammer.

13070, June 25 at 1420, Chinese at S6-S8, CNR1 jammer.

15110, June 25 at 1420, Chinese at S9/S9+10, CNR1 jammer // the rest,
this inband one vs VOA; maybe a bit of victim audio too unlike the
others with not a hint here of SOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, June 25 at 0630, S9-S7 of dead air, as ORTM is back to
its old trix. Nor any 6000 RHC to bother it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13690.050, June 25 at 1352, JBA
off-frequency carrier stix out in a BFO 1-kHz step bandscan. Aoki/NDXC
shows it`s VOA Chinese via SAIPAN, this hour only. And it`s gone at
1413 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1, June 25 circa 1330 UT, can`t get
classical KUCO on one of my portables, nor the other classical KHCC in
Kansas; rather some gospel huxter.

Tropo must be up from somewhere else. Can it be Tulsa like I soon find
on TV? There is a 50 watt KJZT-LP there per WTFDA FM Database, jazz
and enough I guess to block KUCO inside Tulsa. No 90.1s in eastern
Kansas. The nearest adjacent gospelhuxters are: KBNV Fayetteville AR,
7.1H/16.0 V, 142m AFR; and less likely further KSCV Springfield MO,
11/11 kW, 150m, Bott network.

Tropo is up from the Tulsa area on numerous DTV channels, without
aiming exactly that way rather than further clockwise, June 25 from
1429 UT tune-in:

RF 13, KETA OKC is not decoding, must be because of DX CCI? But no
other 13 Okies; maybe KFJX Pittsburg KS; or two in AR, Arkadelphia and
Mountain View.

RF 11, KOED Tulsa, is in just fine if we wanted to watch OETA now!

BAD signal bars on: 9, 10, 14, 21, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 45, 46

RF 8, `Live` no longer with Kathie Lee & Regis, probably KJRH ``2``

RF 20, KQCW-HD, 19-1

RF 22, KOKI-TV, 23-1

RF 26, KTENNBC, 10-1 Ada again

RF 34, KMYT-TV, 41-1; at 1447 UT: 41-3 Grit with `Laramie`; 41-2
GetTV; 41-1 KMYT-TV

By 1441, RF 45 is decoding as 6-1 KOTV; 6-2 CW = same as KQCW on RF
20: with KQCW-19 Muskogee bug in LR; and KOTV 6.2 Tulsa bug in UL.
http://www.w4uvh.net/KQCWonKOTV.jpg

6.3, is NewsOn6NOW, i.e. THEN, looping replays of continuous local
news, reduced SD screen so that continuous commercials run on right
side --- same thing that sibling KWTV-25 ``9`` does in OKC on 9.2.
Photoed some of this, later in DTV pixel art breakup.
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOTVNewson6Now1.jpg
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOTVNewson6Now2.jpg
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOTVNewson6Now3.jpg
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOTVNewson6Now4.jpg

KOTV will eventually repack to RF 26, when? which may explain why KTEN
Ada will be bumped off from there; per rabbitears.info, KOTV will also
continue with relays on RF 30 and 19.

RF 45 KOTV seems to hold up longest and I stick with it, as old frame
freezes and pops up again and again, until as late as 1725 UT!
Predicted tropo map as of 1500:

(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday June 25 at 0123 the 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S7/S9+10 vs summer
noise level. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v [and/or 2130]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

Also check 9330 WBCQ for unscheduled airings during testing phase.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 25 at 2255, WBCQ-6 is on again, with an old
AWWW I remember hearing before; at 2300 changes to TimTron. Inbooming
of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, June 25 at 2011, WRMI with classic rock segués, some
so short it seems like medleys, no announcements until 2017, ``for
something different, go to apsradio.com`` --- so this M-F APS Radio
transmission is not canceled, contrary to what Ivo reported June 18.
S8 and much louder than 9475 WTWW which is only S7-S9. Meanwhile the
other WRMI on 9395 is still SMTV at S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, June 25 at 2011, WTWW-1 is on but remarkably weak,
only S7-S9 and quite undermodulated. It used to be the SSOB by far
blasting in all day. It must be grossly underpowered now, as
propagation is certainly not to blame: Neighbor 9980 WWCR is on now
during its very limited schedule, blasting S9+20/30, and so is even 10
kW WWV on 10000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, June 25 at 1335, KVOH is already on way earlier than
nominal *1400 and to boot, propagating! Praise music in Spanish, of
course, S9-S6. SSOB by far with the only other SOBs being the JBA
Sa`udi carriers on 17895, 17705, 17615+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, June 25 at 0604 UT, is 50 kW daytimer WJNL in MI again
on air in the nightmiddle? Yes! At first mixture with sportstalk,
maybe partial format of KGYN OK per DF, ads for DirecTV and NewsMax TV
[ugh! Has also been added to local cable lineup]. SAH of about
192/minute very close to same as last night just above 3 Hz.

Or is it WPHT? I see in NRC AM Log that both WPHT and KGYN call
themselves ``The Big Talker`` --- how original! But unsame lineups,
and no slogan heard which would not solve the question anyway.

0607 UT joins `Beyond Reality Radio`, in northerly null of KGYN(?)
which then fades down; 0634 UT recheck after newsbreak, promos for
1110 & 101 FM or more specifically 101.1 and 106.3. This all matches
with the group as explained in my yesterday`s report, e.g. 1110 is
sibling station WJML. But are they B.R.R. program affiliates? Yes per
http://beyondrealityradio.com/
if you let it scroll until it get to Michigan. Jimbo as heard last
night at this time was of course a playback Sunday night filler; no
new shows on weekends. Can`t find any program skeds for WJNL et al.
Are the call letters supposed to imply ``JourNaLism``? Website is
instead devoted to ``Deals``.

I`ve yet to see anyone else logging WJNL on the MW lists, where I
posted this ASAP even before including it in my multiband loggings;
was my tip not helpful? Or not noticed without a big headline of its
own? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12010.2-USB, June 25 at 1418, 2-way in colloquial
Spanish, VP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0037 UT June 26

Glenn Hauser logs June 23-24, 2019  View Printable Version 
Monday, June 24 2019

Hauser
** CHINA. 11460, June 24 at 1416, CNR-1 jammer at S5-S7, on an SOH
frequency. Only WOOB one found in a 10-16 MHz scan, altho there is a
suspicious JBA carrier on 14700, unlisted in EiBi or Aoki/NDXC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 17690, June 24 at 1409, JBA carrier with flutter (or with
jammer CCI). Aoki/NDXC shows only VOA Tibetan via Lampertheim during
this hour only. Don`t usually hear a carrier here; only other signals
on band are 17615+ Saudi JBA carrier, and more than that already from
17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, June 24 at 0602, JBA carrier, presumed SIBC.
Seems awfully early, but Honiara sunset will be 0710, now at its
earliest; at 10 degrees south it varies only 30 minutes over the
course of a year. Wonder if they are modulating too? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
June 23 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, just barely audible.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, fair.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 from 0300.5 on WBCQ-6 500 kW 9330.00,
VG of course, S9+20/30 as has just brought up simulcast with Area 51;
at 0328 I confirm WOR also on 5130.367, much weaker S9 vs high storm
noise level.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20. Next:

1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [2 editions]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v [and/or 2130]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

Also check 9330 WBCQ for unscheduled airings during testing phase.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00 (I don`t write 9330.000 since I am not axually
bothering to measure it to that detail, but probably), Sunday June 23
at 2130, WBCQ-6 superpower test is on, but this week modern rock, and
not simulcasting `Marion`s Attic` from 7490 like happened partially
last week. At 2205 I find it is now = much weaker 7490v with `Uncle
Bill`s Melting Pot` including some Turkish music. Unknown what was at
2230, but before 2400 Harry Shearer`s `Le Show` is wrapping up on
9330, so that is still // 7490 unlike the 2300 hour last Sunday. At
0000 UT Monday June 24, 9330 goes into an `Allan Weiner Worldwide`
replay, instead of `Encore` classical music now on 7490, and which I
hear on webcast. Unknown what at 0100, but before 0300, another AWWW
hour is ending from at 0200 start, somewhat curtailed in order to cut
to // Area 51, 5130+ for WORLD OF RADIO, thanks! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, June 24 at 0601, S9+30 of dead air from WTWW-2, also
the constant companions much weaker plus/minus ~12.9 kHz spur carriers
just above 5072 and just below 5098. Maybe recently finished Sunday
night broadcast and not turned off yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, UT Monday June 24 at 0606 UT, surprised to hear a
program promo from WJNL, and into Jim Bohannon --- dominant on
frequency vs KGYN or whatever, with SAH of 186/minute = just over 3
Hz. Still there at 0629 UT joint ID with three FM frequencies starting
with 94.5, and ads mentioning Mackinaw and Traverse City.

No wonder I`m getting it since NRC AM Log shows WJNL is a 50 kW
non-direxional daytimer! Plus 2500 watts critical hours, which this is
not. CoL Kingsley MI, which is just south of Traverse City.

It`s in a group ``The Information Station`` which also includes:
WHAK-960, WWMN-106.3, WJML-1110, W266CS-101.1, but that does not
account for the one FM frequency I copied, 94.5.

The WTFDA FM Database is inaccessible (but not its whats new page).
Per FCC AM & FM Query searches, 94.5 would be 50 kW WYPV in Mackinaw
City, same licensee Mitten News as WJNL.

Anyhow, we have here a 50 kW ND daytimer on the air in the middle of
the night, so should get out widely if they do it again! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, June 24 at 1325 UT, more than two hours after LSR here
of 1115 UT, dead air from NE/SW and a SAH of 264/minute = 4.4 Hz. At
1330 UT now modulating ESPN. The only fit around here per NRC AM log
is KESJ St Joseph MO, 2.5 kW ND at day; discounting KYAL Sapulpa OK,
also 2.5 kW but eastward from here (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1700, June 24 at 1331 UT open carrier/dead air. Can`t
get a sharp DF on it; got to be either KKLF TX or twice-as-far KBGG IA

** CHAD [non]. 5960, June 23 at 0550, VP African song, S6-S7, R.
Ndarason Internationale this hour via ASCENSION. 7415 takes over after
0600. Kuwait is supposed to be on 5960 before and after this hour,
probably off-frequency, but inaudible now this late by 9 am there
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11120, June 22 at 1257, CNR1 jammer, Chinese talk,
S8-S9+10.

12500, June 22 at 1258, CNR1 jammer now in music, S7-S9, // 11785.

12870, June 22 at 1258, CNR1 jammer, S7-S9.

Then in a very quick bandscan, these are the only three WOOB ones
found 9-15 MHz, and all go off at 1300*. All three are CNR1/Sound of
Hope frequencies per EiBi, but no trace of low-power SOHs here,
off-frequency; Aoki/NDXC misses 12870, nothing between 12820 and 12880
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 9395, UT Sun June 23 at 0000, WRMI with Radio for
Peace International, sign-on with faux beep timesignal, IDs in
English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and into woman lexuring in
French. So this is *not* monthly as Ivo had assumed, but weekly --- or
rather, I think it`s a replay of same program last week. So maybe is
produced only monthly repeatedly aired weekly. Will they ever get around
to English via WRMI? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, K17JN-D, Enid, back on the air June 22 at 1430 UT
check; had been missing yesterday. Not only ``no signal`` but no
signal from the 3ABNers.

RF 23, KSBI ``52`` continues to be the one major OKC DTV station with
a marginal/insufficient signal to decode reliably on either of my
external antennas; STB signal meter shows it on the BAD verge. Why?
It`s never been up to par since repacking from RF 50. Which means we
can`t get reliable reception of its subchannels either, which are not
on cable: Bounce, Laff, Grit and Escape, per rabbitears.info.

For KSBI, rabbitears.info shows
1085' 1000 kW ND (E) (Vertical ERP: 300 kW)
(63.4 kW + 11.98 dB gain = 1000 kW ERP)

Compare to its owner, KWTV RF 25:
``1568' 748 kW DA (E) (Vertical ERP: 249 kW)
Directional Pattern [almost ND, minor caves]
(64.4 kW + 10.65 dB gain = 748 kW ERP)``

or the other licensed parameters, one of them temporary? Both on same
tower per precise coördinates:

``1085' 819 kW ND (E) (Vertical ERP: 245.7 kW)
(65.2 kW + 10.99 dB gain = 819 kW ERP)``

Which mean by ERP, that KWTV ought to have a lesser signal, certainly
not the case as received in Enid. I guess being almost 500 feet higher
on the tower make the difference? Will KSBI ever get raised?

As of last Nov 30, see DXLD 18-49 for an explanation of the situation

And Noel Green, NW England: ``Reception of HLR 6190 was also very poor
at my location on the 22nd at around 0645 UT tune in. I could hear
enough to distinguish Glenn's voice, but not much else``

gh: not confirmed Sat June 22 at 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio,
9485-CUSB: on UTwente SDR, no signal at several spot chex between 1420
and 1500, just huge splash from 9490 Romania.

Alan Gale from his location in England: ``Hi Glen[n], Nothing at all
heard on 9485 kHz again from HLR, but I thought I might at least catch
the new relay of WoR on 15770 kHz at 2030 UT, but the band had pretty
much faded out here by then. It's usually a much better signal at that
time of the day, but conditions have been a bit disturbed on there for
the past few days, even during the afternoons. It's back to IRRS on
7290 kHz at 1815 on Monday again then; at least that has been coming
in very well here in recent weeks. Alan``

Confirmed by gh, Saturday June 22 at 2044 the new 2030 on WRMI 15770,
S8-S6.

Also confirmed Sat June 22 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S6-S8, as usual JIP
theme music after my first eleven words, as the playout continue to
start early before this transmitter switch to program feed after IS &
ID loop. Maybe I should start my utterances twice in a row.

There was a special WOR broadcast on WBCQ-6, 500 kW Super-station
test, Sat June 22 at 2130 on 9330.00, tnx to Larry Will. He notified
me ahead of time but unfortunately there was a typo giving the time as
2310, so we and those I quickly notified missed it; checked at 2310,
Timtron was on.

Confirmed UT Sunday June 23 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, very good S9+20/30.

Confirmed UT Sunday June 23 at 0334 check on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, but
too much storm noise to detect current topic nor calculate approx.
variable start time.

** U S A. Here`s John Carver`s version of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, on
WBCQ, UT Sat June 22 at 0000:

``Tonight's show started just a bit early again after some fill music
on 7490. Freddie calls right after the theme song ends. I think it's
Allan and Angela in the studio as I haven't hard anyone else. Allan
says he's being broadcast tonight on the new transmitter at full
power.

Checking 9330 I have it at 20 over without adjusting the antenna tuner
or changing the pre-selector. Allan states that the tube that had the
damaged socket weighs two hundred and fifty pounds and has been
repaired. He also stated that they were renaming the program again to
Angela and Allan Weiner World Wide.

They're still working on the antenna every day between seven in the
morning till around four in the afternoon so testing only at night. He
said that the sign on date would be July 8. Freddie finally booted off
the phone at 0024 and another phone call immediately while at the same
time another telephone was ringing in the studio. Another phone call
at 0027. Again during the phone call two other phones in the studio
were heard ringing.

TimTron on the phone at 0033 commenting on the signal strength at his
QTH and again another phone in the studio ringing. Lots of good
reports from Australia, Allan says. Phone call from Canada at 0036.
Allan said that they had received a phone call from someone in
Virginia during the last test at full power. Said he guy didn't own a
shortwave radio and was picking up 9330 on the smart speaker he'd
installed in his ceiling and was asking how to stop the radio signal
from coming in. Said he wanted to stop it.

Phone call at 0039 from a FM station owner in Kansas who'd just bought
a SW receiver a month ago and had stumbled across 9330. Asked some
questions about the station and Allan asked questions about his
station. Said he had a good signal on a portable with just the whip.
Reading of emails at 0054 and closing prayer at 0101. Program was off
the air at 0105. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Sat June 22 at 2043, WBCQ-6 already on at S9+25,
song in Spanish; after 2300 it`s TimTron, and UT Sun June 23 at 0115
`Lumpy Gravy`, Larry Will & Jane acknowledging reception reports,
presumably // 5130+ buried in the noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, June 22 at 2330, WTWW-2 is off, but webcast is about
ham radio field day instead of `Theater Organ in [sic] the Ozarx`;
recheck at 2355, now webcast is stereo TOITO so I missed most of it.
By 0546, 5085 is on with rock but weak, only S9; WTWW-1, 5830 is also
on at 0549 but only S3-S7 and as usual undermodulated (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15618.2, 15557.2, 15496.1, 15435.0, 15251.8, June 22 at
2046-2047, JBA blobcarriers at intervals of 61.1 or 61.0 kHz. Question
is whether these be spurs out of a SWBC station, or some local device?
Probably the latter. The top one I first thought might be out of WEWN,
but 15610 is much weaker. I`ve often noted a JBA carrier on 15435,
which may be Sa`udi Arabia only between 1450 and 1800 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
