Hauser
** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, May 2 at 0226, Station YHWH is back! Recognizable voice but unreadable due to heavy S9+10 storm noise from Kansas. Still audible past 0257 but off by 0356. Tnx to Rick Barton, AZ, for an earlier May 2 tip to the WOR iog:

``YHWH is on right now, the usual guy ("Josiah") at 0045 on 7470. Was very weak, but signal level started amping up as I write this. S-9 here in Arizona. 0047 playing creepy Days of Hardlife music.``

That was his last favorite frequency, not heard for a semiyear since Rick`s last(?) report Oct 14, 2017 at 0200-0300+ on 7470 (altho I did have unIDs on 7470 around the same hours Nov 19 and 23). In his lengthy but sporadic pirate career, many other frequencies were used, especially in the 7 MHz band, but also on some seldom-caught higher daytime bands such as 15 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Another SNAFU by KOSU, and this time I notify the GM, Kelly Burley:

``Kelly, KOSU continues to suffer from some really big programming mixups, apparently with no human paying attention or in control. In case you are still unaware what happened:

Tuesday [May 1] I was listening to Fresh Air, but it stopped abruptly at 12:54 [pm CDT = 1754 UT], into local promos, 12:55 Jenifer timecheck as 1:00, opening Takeaway, 12:56 dead air instead of news. I didn`t keep listening but on previous occasions the DA stayed until the real clock caught up with the KOSU clock.

There was also some kind of strange looping, over and over during Spy time. Here is how I reported it, and you can hear it yourself: [as in my previous report] How can this keep happening? Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, May 1 at 2356, JBA carrier from R. Chaski; cuts off sometime between 2359 and 2400. No more slippage to time, no more fun, but just to note it`s still there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 1 at 2347, S9+10/20 VG signal with Turkish song; 2351 multi-lingual VOT IDs, 2353 brief German sign-off with lots of numbers (satellite info?), fragment of IS and cut off before 2354. Due to this timing, it appears to be a deliberate extension by the sleepy/sloppyrators at Emirler, i.e. another hour tacked on to the 2200 English broadcast, as German follows available over the feedline. It`s exactly the same thing that would happen sporadically during the B-season on 5960 after 0000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1927 monitoring: received a reply from Vern of WA0RCR about WOR missing from 1860-AM, UT Sunday April 29 at 0315 and later: a detailed explanation, but basically it was an automation programming problem because of an earlier extended TWIAR interview with Art Bell; he assures that WOR will be back on usual slightly variable schedule.

1927 confirmed Tuesday May 1 at 2030 on WRMI 7780 JBA and 9455 VP. Final airing, as 1928 not quite ready, but:

WORLD OF RADIO 1928 contents: Antarctica, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Canada, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Europe, Germany, Iran, Korea North & South, Luxembourg non, Mongolia, PerÃ, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Sa`udi Arabia, South Africa, South America, Taiwan, UAE, UK, USA; and the propagation outlook

WOR 1928 confirmed first airing Tuesday May 1 at 2130 on WRMI 7780 & 9455, JBA to VP, both heavily marred by storm crash noise from Kansas (which is supposed to hit us in OK, afternoon of May 2). Slept thru Wed 1030 on WRMI 9455; maybe someone can confirm that. Next:

All 9330 broadcasts on WBCQ have been removed here as none confirmed since April 22! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

New WOR site
http://www.listenersguide.org.uk/swl/world-of-radio/

Hello Glenn, Just a line to say I carry the latest two episodes on The Listener's Guide. Waste your time with Bob's website:
http://www.listenersguide.org.uk/
Cheers now, (Bob Ellis, UK, April 29, WORLD OF RADIO 1928, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

New Outlet for World of Radio

Hi Glenn. I hope you are well. I wanted to let you know that World of Radio has a new outlet which will be getting the program from Global Community Radio Channel One (GCR1) on Sunday nights.

Your program will now be heard on KPDO (89.3) in Pescadero, California. This is a brand new community radio station which will be taking programming from Global Community Radio, as well as from the mostly Spanish language public radio service Radio BilingÃe.

[Pescadero is on the coast, Hwy 1, west of San JosÃ; WTFDA DB shows not an -LP but 0.1 kW, HAAT -7m, and ``silent`` --- no longer. Maybe someone on Asilomar State Beach can hear it, 50+ miles away down the coast?]

World of Radio will air Sundays at 6 PM Pacific [UT Monday 0100]. The station has already started streaming, in addition to broadcasting on FM. Their website: http://www.kpdo.net

I know you will want to mention this on WOR as soon as possible.

I have more GCR news which I'm sure will be of interest to you personally. If you have time to mention it on WOR at some point, please do.

Global Community Radio has expanded its program offerings from two to three 24/7 streams. GCR1 remains a news and talk service with an emphasis on world news. GCR2 now focuses on a wide variety of popular music genres. The new GCR3 is primarily dedicated to Classical and Jazz. In addition, GCR3 presents several talk shows on various aspects of the arts, along with several hours per week of radio theatre, both Old Time Radio and contemporary radio drama.

Find complete program schedules for all three GCR streams, along with a list of local rebroadcasters for GCR at our website: http://globalcommunityradio.blogspot.com.

Keep up the great work. Best, (Jake Longwell, May 1, Global Community Radio, WORLD OF RADIO 1928, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11660, May 2 at 1343, unlike yesterday, no signal from WTWW, 2 x 5830, the fundamental confirmed still on air. Might be due to propagation, except: neighbor WWCR 13845 and 15825 are 20 over 9! Due to sporadic E boost.

Map checked a couple hours later shows 53 MHz MUF between there and here, reminding us that the VHF Es season is getting underway. But WWCR serves as a pilot that the MUF may be building. There is however a JBA carrier on 11660, i.e. CRI English via Kashgar, East Turkistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.088, May 2 at 1355, finds KVOH already on air with S6 signal in Spanish; BFO is on as I am first tuned to 17775.00, shortly hearing it jump away abruptly as remeasured above, warming up? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 910, May 2 at 1205 UT, ``Kyrie Eleison`` and then Christian service in English. First thought it might be RCatholic, but NW/SE and most likely from KPOF Denver, which per NRC AM Log now stands for ``Point of Faith``, rather than ``Pillar of Fire``; so the old slogan was a bit too threatening? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 9890, May 2 at 1241, S2-S6 in Russian, martial? music. EiBi shows it`s Vatican News at 1230-1300, relayed by IBB Tinang, PHILIPPINES for Siberia. Violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6110, May 2 at 0627, carrier cutting on every 6 seconds, S9+10, as audible with BFO; similar situation to 9610 earlier. What`s going on? Only Tibet and Ethiopia scheduled at this hour, neither likely to propagate here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9610, May 1 at 2340, beeps every 3 seconds, i.e. audible with BFO, carrier cutting on and off. Only thing scheduled in Aoki/NDXC is CNR8 in Mongolian, surely not this. Possibly related to pulse jamming spread 9613-9622 approx., possibly spurious out of 9565 pileup vs Radio MartÃ? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11981.024, May 2 at 1233, strong RTTY, no doubt the same as the open carrier heard yesterday on 11981.022 at 1351-1357+. Today on 11980.0 is only a JBA carrier, which would be CRI English via Kunming. RTTY INTRUDER still going at 1345. Can someone read and ID it? No significant hits in the UDXF iog (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 1715 UT May 2

** CHINA. 11785, May 1 at 1349, VG signal with soft piano music, soon M&W talking over in Chinese. It`s CNR1 jamming VOA Chinese via Philippines, of which not a trace is to be heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15590, April 30 at 1328, dramatic dialog with SFX, music, bits of Chinese --- typical CRI programming now and sounds the same as on JBM 9570 via Cuba. It`s one of the ubiquitous 308 degree beams from Urumqi, English at 1200-1500, making it over here unlike anything else on the band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 15510, April 29 at 1809, S5-S9 halting talk in unknown tonal language; almost sounded like the modulation was cutting out. 1816 percussive HOA music added, and then another non-halting speaker. HFCC shows besides an imaginary ARM listing earlier, only 15510 is:
``15510 1730 1900 47E,48W WOF 300 140 0 618 1234567 250318 281018 D 15450 Ara G IBR BAB 16110 FN01``

i.e. IBRA Radio in Arabic via BabCock, Woofferton UK. But this is NOT Arabic. NDXC/Aoki is more accurate:
15510 1730-1800 G IBRA MEDIA/Radio Sama Bej Woofferton 1-7
15510 1800-1830 G IBRA MEDIA/Radio Sama Fur Woofferton 1-7
15510 1830-1900 G IBRA MEDIA/Radio Sama Ara Woofferton 1-7

So it`s Fur following Bej before Ara. EiBi lang. abbrs. are resp. TGR, FUR and A. But there`s no FUR on his readme language list! Next stop: WRTH 2018 page 491 for IBRA B-17 sked under Sweden: it`s Fur --- that is the full name of the language. Next stop, Google search to:

``Fur languages - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fur_languages
The Fur or For languages constitute a small, closely related family which are a proposed member of the Nilo-Saharan family. Fur in western Sudan had around 750,000 speakers in 2004, and Amdang (also called Mimi) in eastern Chad had around 40,000 speakers in 2000``

While we`re at it, what about 1730-1800? NDXC/Aoki says Bej, but EiBi says TGR which means Tigre (not Tigrinya) as in Eritrea. WRTH says Beja, so is that another name for Tigre, or completely different? No Bej in EiBi list (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WORLD OF RADIO 1927 monitoring: barely confirmed Sunday April 29 at 1904 on WRMI 9395, my voice recognizable but not what I say, while at 1900 on another receiver only a JBA carrier. Not confirmed Sunday April 29 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: still sticking with Brother HyStairical, now one week after the last time WOR was to be heard on 9330. Ditto Monday April 30 at 2330. Still no explanation or response from WBCQ. So I am removing all the 9330s from my schedules.

** U S A [and non]. 11660, May 1 at 1344, WTWW, with hateful racist and anti-Muslim talk, against ``black-natured savages coveting white women``. This is S9+10, and slightly stronger than 5830 fading to only S9. Yes, second harmonic! Never heard before. Altho falling in 25mb, one might assume it was fundamental. Ted has obviously mis-tuned the transmitter or removed any harmonic filtering.

If there`s one harmonic, there could be more: check 17490, 23320 if propagation ever allow. 11660 was first reported by Dan Sheedy, California, at 1315-1350 April 28. 11660 cuts off abruptly at 1403*. By 1404 I tune to 9475 and it`s already on at S9+20, with the usual spurs 9462.1 & 9487.9, not accompanying 5830 or 11660, so separate transmitter. After 1400, 11660 also was colliding with another station, listed as CRI in Urdu via Kunming. (CRI is also on 11660 at 11-14 in English, but via Kashgar, not heard under WTWW). Once in the clear, CRI is S6-S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 11981.022, May 1 at 1351, dead air open carrier fading S9 to S7, making big het with 11980 CRI English via Kunming until it quits at 1357 after a couple minutes of Chinese lesson, while 11981+ remains on. Only other 11980 scheduled was DW in Hausa via SÃo TomÃ, also until 1357, but this is surely too strong to be that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
