Thursday, April 27 2017

** KUWAIT. 15540, April 26 at 1821, presumed R. Kuwait in English, VP S6 signal vs line noise level of S4-S5. I`m keeping after the electric company to fix it, and in fact they are back here working on it circa 1530 April 27 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 800, April 27 at 1200 UT, XEROK with choral NA, near-local KQCV OKC nulled as much as possible. This time I can copy enough of the full ID which follows at 1202 to tell that Radio CaÃÃn with street address is *not* mentioning an FM frequency with a seven in it, but instead after 800, they say ``Grupo 7`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, April 26 at 1832, JBA carrier but the SSOB vs even weaker 6070 CFRX carrier exactly at local mean noon here. Detectable despite line noise level, and have previously found it later in afternoon. Presumed XEPPM, Radio EducaciÃn, MÃxico DF at some 1180 miles, which supposedly does not sign on until 2300. It`s definitely not on circa sunrise when never heard tho better propagable, so when do they turn it on and is it just carrier or with programming // MW 1060? Someone in the RGV might be able to tell which (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615-AM, April 27 at 0456, Station YHWH is on but VP, gone at next check 0514 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF channel A-48 NTSC, April 27 at 1500 UT, I`m monitoring snow again in case I can get KOCY-LP OKC, the Estrella TV station. Maps show tropo is slightly enhanced over central OK. Yes! At *1506 video flashes on the air, but gone again in a few seconds. This keeps happening, at *1507, *1508, *1510, *1513, each lasting well less than a minute. But nothing more in 20+ minutes after that. While on, it`s steady, and the cuts on and off are sharp/abrupt. There is no lightning around, and the steady signal, no Doppler fading, means it`s not Vance airplane scatter either.

Therefore I conclude that like also monitored some weeks ago, this transmitter is axually off the air most of the time, but cuts on briefly and unpredictably. After the first flash, I bring up KTUZ-DT RF 29, which has the same silly program (`El Show de Lagrimita y Costel`, featuring La Silla ElÃctrica), on its virtual 48 and confirm it matches altho not synchronized. RF 48 remains the last such station on analog air around here (sporadically). It`s totally superfluous for the OKC audience of course, with the high-power DTV version of same available without breaks (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 25 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, and NOW, 9455 is finally on the air and during this hour at least, // 15770, both fair-good. Also confirmed Wednesday April 26 at 1315.5 on WRMI 9955, very poor. Also confirmed Wed Apr 25 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast. Also confirmed Wed Apr 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, good.

Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 9455, April 25 at 2132, WRMI-5 is finally activated as predicted for more than a week, replacing 6855 whence WRMI was ordered to vacate. // 15770 during this hour, and check the transmission skedgrid at http://tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs for the rest of the 24 hours, seemingly initially at least, on the same // pattern as 6855 was. At 0552 UT April 26, 9455 is S9+20 and about the same strength as // 9395 with the Oldies service, and slightly stronger than 9955 with BS at S9+10. Strength of all 9 MHz WRMI channels varies widely in the nightmiddle depending on MUF.

At 1315 April 26, again with Oldies, both good on 9455 // 9395. The azimuths are 285 and 355 respectively, so we are about halfway between them circa 315. April 26 at 1718 check, 9455 at midday is a JBA carrier, weaker than 9395 with Oldies, and 9955 with BS. I`m still fighting a 24h line noise level. April 27 at 1055, 9455 is JBA carrier when during this hour only it`s scheduled // 5850 on System F with variety of programming, 5850 with `Voice of the Report of the Week` at 1000 on Thursdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.068, April 26 at 0557, WBCQ at S9+10 with music, not BS until joined in progress and without any ID, from 0600. Yet 23 hours later, April 27 at 0516, 7490.1 is already in BS for this hour, his current monomania being pentecost. BS on 7490 supposedly runs only until 0700* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 26 at 1822, WJHR with usual gospel huxter, at S5 about the same as the line noise level. Many other times during the day it`s inaudible, hard to be sure if on air or not, but it`s no 50 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7575.8-USB, April 27 at 0515, 2-way in tonal? Language, or maybe 1-way with pauses; far too close to the BS out of 7570 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1555 UT April 27

** INDONESIA. 9525-, April 24 at 1423 check, VOI absent again today, no carrier detectable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 11985, April 24 at 2029, S9-S6 open carrier, 2030 NHK World R. Japon opening in French via MADAGASCAR. At least something is making it thru with rather dismal propagation conditions, marred further here by my line noise problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 91.1 FM, April 24 at 1717 UT check, KKRD Enid, 200-watt station, is still off the air as first noted three days ago following a storm. Still off April 25. Its antenna is on the Broadway Tower in downtown Enid. Once a respected office building, new owners got it for a song and were trying to convert it into a hotel, but now it`s decrepit, with both elevators padlocked! Maybe no one wants to climb the stairs (14? floors) to restart the transmitter? Part of the external facing cracked off last year, and just recently there was a fire in a transformer just outside the building.

This opens 91.1 for 100 kW stations in Wichita KS, KCFN, with AFR, and in Lawton OK, KJRF, another gospel huxter, but not heard yet, both in 100+ mile range. And much to be preferred, 100 kW High Plains Public Radio, KANZ Garden City KS, but just too far on internal antennas.

90.9, KOKF Edmond OK is still on with Air One contemporary Christian music, rather than the talk show I logged before, 1717 UT April 24.

89.1, K206CA, Enid, Oasis Network translator of 90.5 KNYD (or really 88.1 KMSI??) has been restored after running dead air at last check.

92.1, KAMG-LP, Enid remains off the air as of April 25. Last heard carrier on March 10, no modulation for a long time before then. WTFDA DB now shows its horizontal and vertical powers both as 0.0 kW, certainly appropriate.

104.7, KQSN, Ponca City, April 24 at 1903 UT, ID as ``KQSN, Ponca City, Sunny 104.7`` and *one* minute of Fox News until 1904 resuming music.

105.5, K288FX, North Enid, K-love translator of KYLV 88.9, is still off the air April 25, as first noticed April 21 after storms (it`s really in East Enid).

105.7, KRDR Alva, 50 kW now easily heard with 105.5 local off, is no longer ESPN, but hard rock/rap, April 24 at 1900 UT, ``We are The Pulse. . .`` and K-calls not copied. April 25 at 1546 UT: ``The Pulse, 105.7 FM``

WTFDA DB identifies it with sibling? station: ``COYOTE COUNTRY 98.3 KQZQ``. Radio-locator shows: ``KRDR-FM 105.7 MHz Alva, Oklahoma "ESPN Radio 105.7" Format: Sports Website: none``

But google search leads to this:
which has nothing but current sports news on it

Also to this FB, but nothing new since June 2016:

We would much prefer to hear on 105.7, KROU Spencer, public radio relay of KGOU Norman, but it`s only 1.6 kW, and can`t overcome KRDR until about Kingfisher on US 81 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed Monday April 24 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.35v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Tuesday April 25 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG S9+20. Also barely confirmed Tuesday April 25 at 1114 the 1100 broadcast on WRMI 9955; at least it sounds like me, mixed with equally weak pulse jamming. Still no 9455. Next:
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455? to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455? to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Note: 9455 is still not activated as of April 25, and when it is, unclear whether will still be // 9955, 15770 and 5850 at above WOR times like former 6855 was (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, April 24 at 1424 check, still no signal from WRMI-5, supposed to reactivate here ex-6855, altho we are well past ``next week`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15151.50-USB, April 25, 2017 at 1338, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS. Previously logged on 15151.0-USB: at 1455 UT Dec 5, 2014; at 0045 UT Sept 26, 2014; at 1426 UT Oct 30, 2013; at 1458 UT Oct 19, 2009; and at 1519 UT October 23, 2006 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000 & 6145, April 23 at 0544 check of the Cuban Five RHC English frequencies: these two are just barely modulated; 6100 is fair, 5040 loud, 6060 louder with American protest/folk song (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, UT Monday April 24 at 0003, RHC is in Kriyol here, not Esperanto; did not have a chance to check at 2230 or 2300 on this or other frequencies, none of which had it a week ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. Correxion: I must withdraw my ``kudos`` to Arnie for avoiding collision with The Mighty KBC, the first UT Sunday after he moved RHC from 6165 to 6145. I so wanted to say something nice about him. You will recall that April 16 at 0100 I found that RHC had gone back to 6165, leaving 6145 to KBC. I did not listen to the rest of the hour, assuming that was a deliberate move to avoid interference until 0200. But a delayed report from Ken Zichi in the MARE Tipsheet shows that RHC was back on 6145 already by 0125:

``GERMANY: 6145 The Mighty KBC w/Uncle Eric's Giant Juke Box about equal with R Havana Cuba which made it pretty unpleasant to listen to, but the digital mode made it through pretty OK: Arrangement in the dining room of the Dutch ambassador's residence in Washington for Dutch TuÃp [Tulip] Days. (Sic. as received) Inline image 2, 4+353+2 kinda fluttery & serious co-channel QRM from Cuba, in EE 0125-0135 16/Apr SB-310 + randomwire--Zichi MI``

The following week on April 23, as I reported last time, RHC stayed on 6145, carrier from before 0100, for me underneath KBC modulation but atop its signal level. It was much worse for Kraig Krist in VA, who does a segment on The Giant Jukebox himself:

``6145 - Mighty KBC. 0000 UT "Dave Mason Show". S6 with static and fading. 0012 signal "improves" to S9 at times, but Dave's voice, what he is saying is difficult to understand. It's easier understanding the songs. 0034 signal S9 +10dB at times. 0053 KBC audio weakens. The signal is still S9 +10dB but something is "stepping" on the audio. At 0054 I hear singing on 6145 kHz. It's not from the Mighty KBC! 0055 the Mighty KBC is getting crushed. At 0100 I discover the cause of the interference. It's Radio Habana Cuba with their English program on 6145 kHz. From 0100 the Mighty KBC is useless on 6145! 73, (Kraig, KG4LAC, Krist, April 24, dxldyg via DXLD)``

So QSY to 9925 cannot come soon enough, but supposed to be one more week on 6145 (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6900.01-AM, April 24 at 0010, C&W music at S8, 0012 talk over music; some QRM from Spanish peskies on LSB (normal inhabitants here so avoided by pirates), evitable by USB tuning. 0033 S7, lo-fi and somewhat distorted music, no announcements heard. 0040 wild SFX mixing with mx and now up to S9; 0045 more LSB peskies. These logs say it was Unknown Name Radio Network again:
as previously heard on 6880 and other frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6912.5-AM, April 24 at 0037, very weak music at S4, unID pirate, also unID per these logs of electronic dance music:

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday April 23 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, fair, about 3 minutes in so started circa 0325. Also confirmed Sunday April 23 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday April 24 after 0300 on Area 51 webcast; and very poor in noise level at 0325 check on WBCQ 5130v. Not confirmed Monday April 24 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, because another repeat of the `Bye, Bye Sitkunai` hour special has been playing since 0300 like exactly one week ago; as I suspected might happen. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455? to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455? to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455? to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Note: 9455 is still not activated as of April 23, and when it is, unclear whether will still be // 9955, 15770 and 5850 at above WOR times like former 6855 was (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, April 23 at 0547, no signal from WWCR. Must be off; higher frequencies from Tennessee about one megameter away are reduced to very poor level: not unusual on 49m, but very unusual on 60: 5085 WTWW, 4840 WWCR, so figured 3215 would still be inbooming if on. WWV reported:

``Geophysical Alert Message
Solar-terrestrial indices for 22 April follow.
Solar flux 84 and estimated planetary A-index 54.
The estimated planetary K-index at 0600 UTC on 23 April was 4.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level occurred.
Space weather for the next 24 hours is predicted to be moderate.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G2 level are expected``

** U S A. 5980, April 24 at 0006, weak signal with DGS // 5935 WWCR-2. It`s the leapfrog mixing product normally not radiating until much later, because WWCR-4 transmitter is running S9+40 of dead air on 5890; at 45 kHz separations. #4 does not start 5890 until 0200 weekdays, later on weekends, and per program schedule is off the air between 4 and 10 pm CT Sundays, still with wrong UT conversion at right margin as ``22-04``!

This would have blocked R. Chaski, PerÃ, if it were still on the 5980 air until 0103v*. Claudio Galaz in Chile found that missing before 2400 UT April 20, last heard on April 18 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, April 24 at 0002, WWRB is already on tonight with anti-Democratic political huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

** U S A. 770, April 23 at 1214 UT, steady signal mentions crawfordbroadcasting.com and loops N/S. Surely it`s my nearest at that angle after sunrise here, KAAM Garland (Metroplex) TX. But that station is not licensed to Crawford, and the website shows their only 770 is KCBC San Francisco (Manteca) CA, certainly not what I am hearing with its lobes into the Pacific, even if on 50 kW cardioid day pattern. KAAM program schedule
states merely `public affairs`` for 7-7:30 am Sundays. Apparently they carry some Crawford program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1030, April 23 at 1221 UT, IDs as ``Real Country 1030 AM, KCWJ`, i.e. Blue Springs (Independence) MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1140, April 23 at 1223 UT, jazz show with classic performances from 1948, 1949; 1241 UT Miles and the Nonet. Tight DF for NE/SW, atop some SS QRM from AR or NL, 1258 UT finally YL talkover mentions Kansas City, so KCXL Liberty MO, now on 4 kW non-direxional day power. Name of show in passing sounded like ``Neon Jazz``, but program schedule http://www.kcxl.com/shows.html lists `Neon Beat` at 6-8 am CT and all afternoons Saturdays & Sundays, otherwise far-right extremist talk shows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs April 22-23, 2017  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 23 2017

** INDIA. 9690, April 22 at 1327, pop music playing, must be runup to AIR, perhaps from preceding Tibetan service feed intended for other frequencies. 1330 GOS sign-on in English, think she mentions 9690 & 13710 only, but 9690 too poor at S4-S6, and 13710 inaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525-, April 22 at 1328, no signal at all from VOI amid scheduled English hour. What does Atsunori say? Agrees it`s missing today, after logs every day previously this month for a triweek (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ITALY [non]. 7730, UT Sunday April 23 at 0040, Italian Shortwave Panorama, some rather routine SWBC logs, 0043 IBC Radio ID, schedule including this broadcast on WRMI, then ham DX news from I2MQP Mario or Gabriel. VG signal as usual on this QRG (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, UT Sunday April 23 at 0013, Mighty KBC music, poor at S9 vs S8 line noise level. By 0054 it`s S9+25 --- or rather, now the RHC open carrier is on, seeming to boost signal of understation, at least quietening it. They are virtually zero-beat so not obvious what is happening. I keep checking 6165 whether RHC repeats last week`s switch back there avoiding KBC, but never shows, so maybe it was a fluke, and at 0104 KBC has changed program to `The Giant Jukebox`.

Only at 0105 is there enough undermodulation also from RHC English to detect on 6145 as // much louder 6000. But KBC music modulation is still atop 6145 while its signal must be way under the Cuban strength. One more week of this collision before KBC via GERMANY is planned from May 7 to ascend to 9925 for summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTNING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, April 23 at 0021, pirate music mixing with CW and SSTV. 0028 retune to hear some fast CW and off. Logs here think there were really two stations, the SSTV one IDing as Pee Wee:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, April 23 at 0023, lo-fi music at S9+5, 0024 announcement twice by M synth voice as ``--- something Radio Network`` with hotmail address, and then same by YL synth. 0050 still tinny music, long pauses. Another unreadable canned ID at 0102. These logs
say it was Unknown Name Radio Network, heard by many from 2310, and by one with carrier test(?) as early as 1630 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 596 kHz, April 22 at 1838 UT check, high noon, still JBA carrier which I traced months ago to a spur out of 1640 KZLS, east of Hennessey (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

** PERU. 5980, April 23 at 0016 and 0050, still not even a JBA carrier from R. Chaski, missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17530, April 22 at 1826, VOA in African English, good at S9 vs S5 local line noise level, must be Greenville, not Vatican, as SSOB and virtually OSOB: 17855 Spain JBA carrier, 17640 Madagascar MWV zilch. A report about a diabetes study at McMaster University; but I am apprehensive as it keeps going, too close to closing time for this frequency, and sure enough, she is cut off at 1829:50 for DA and standard YDD sign-off, totally uncalled for. BTW, 19m is also dead except for 15140 RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: NOT confirmed Sat Apr 22 at 1431 on HLR 7265-CUSB: on UTwente SDR all I can hear now and rechecking during the semihour are BA South Asian songs, i.e. CRI Sinhala via EAST TURKISTAN; and at 1500 CRI IS. HLR was supposed to resume this weekend after maintenance break, and may well have, but still not propagating over the daytime Germany-Holland path.

WOR 1874 confirmed Sat April 22 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330.0-CUSB, fair. Next:

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun April 23 at 0032, WRMI-6 with a song by Bing Crosby about the holy child and the littlest angel of all, Xmas carol I am not familiar with, but sorta sacred for a change, as Xmas Radio is daily(?) this hour. Whew, overlapping next tune is jazzy version of `Santa Claus Is Coming To Town` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Sat April 22 at 2227, WRMI is replaying `Bye, bye, Sitkunai`, hour not ending, but amid so must have started at 2200. Tnx to tip from roger, germany who was listening to System D. Looks like additional unscheduled playbacks are coming, like so often happens with special bookings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, Sat April 22 at 1328 on bandscan, I happen to hit WINB playing Star Spangled Banner --- I periodically lament that no US SW station ever plays it at s/on or s/off --- and this still doesn`t count, and in fact it`s worse, as WINB merely uses it as background music, talking over it with sign-on. A little more plays on, and I can tell the music is wowing --- probably from a very old cartridge. Talking over our NA is tantamount to flag desecration (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930 & associated parasites, 9917.1 and 9942.9, Saturday April 22 at 1808, WTWW with `Theater Organ from the Ozarx` in progress with Bob Heil ``tonight``, but cuts off air at 1812 as I am listening in the yard on the PL-880. Back on a few minutes later when rechecked. Runs until 1839 canned ID, into Amateur Radio Newsline #2060.

9930 & 5085, UT Sunday April 23 at 0012, neither WTWW-2 frequency is on, unlike a week ago with 9930 past 0030. Still neither at 0050 check nor by 0107 when `Theater Organ from the Ozarx` should have been airing when it`s really night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6935-LSB, April 23 at 0022, 2-way in Brazuguese amid the NAm pirates. Must be running considerable power to make it here, unlike some S American broadcast pirates. 6950-USB also with some 2-way in Spanish(?) at 0027 April 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9350, April 23 at 0035, very poor music, goes off, then similar heard on 9355, it goes off, then 9350 back on with JBA carrier. Same station, pirate experimenting? Nothing scheduled on either at this hour per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
