Hauser
** EGYPT. 9745, April 22 at 0045, no signal from R. Cairo Spanish, checking since there was a sufficient one on 9744.60, 24 hours and 5 minutes earlier but which soon went off. Maybe same behavior tonight? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-AM, April 22 at 0005, JBA carrier under local spurblob from a DTV box or something. Logs here say it was Radio Illuminati until sign-off 0006:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34338.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, April 22 at 0008, pirate hard rock music at S8. XLR8 per these logs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34346.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, April 22 at 0007, pirate music at S8; recheck at 0041 catch a Radio Free, What-ever, ID. Many more logs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34343.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.98-AM, April 22 at 0015, S9 signal but JBM music. These say it was Liquid Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34348.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, April 22 at 0049, not even a JBA carrier from R. Chaski, apparently off. Perhaps Claudio Galaz, Chile, the only other DXer who ever logs it, will confirm whether it`s also totally off during the previous bihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 13760, April 22 at 0032, wobbly JBA carrier, i.e. VOA Tibetan via THAILAND on its Saturday-only frequency, sounds about the same as 24 hours earlier on Friday`s 13805; and more likely to be the CNR1 jamming.

13770, April 22 at 0033 accompanying the above is very poor talk in Vietnamese, i.e. CRI hour southward from Xi`an (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed Friday April 21 at 2230 on WRMI 11580, good S9 to S9+10. Should still be // 5950 but too weak to tell, JBA carrier. Also confirmed Fri Apr 21 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.87v-CUSB, good S9+10/20. Next:

Note: 9455 is still not activated as of April 21, 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. 7490.06, UT Sat April 22 at 0004, WBCQ with C&W, bluegrass music instead of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`; 0009 Allan interjects something, 0010 says digital cluster---- is over, computer control with a mind of its own. Tom to the rescue. Allan is still in Fla, leaving it the great crew in Monticello but must have been asleep at the switch. Soon a call from Ramsey, and then a long monologue by AW about how he enjoys restoring classic 100+year-old cars. Also on 5129.8 much weaker and delayed a good many seconds. Mentions that he has not talked about politix lately, hmmm, but continues to make Christian references (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7375-7395, April 22 at 0012, bigsig from 7385 WHRI music splashing out 10 kHz above and below; and the ultrasidebands sound something like DRM. QRMs 7375 Romania in English, mostly evitable by LSB tuning but should not have to (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15430.6-USB, April 22 at 0036, 2-way in colloquial Spanish INTRUDERS referring to putas, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0354 UT April 22

Hauser
** CUBA. 5040, April 21 at 0101, RHC making evening Spanish frequency announcement, so I copy it sic in typical Soviet-style reverse disorder: 15230, 13740, 11670, 11840, 9535, 9710, 6060, and at 03-07 5040; until 0400 11760. It`s wrong/outdated! The studionix are not SWLs, even of their own station, or they would know better. 9710 is reconfirmed off (audiblizing CRI Portuguese via Kashgar), replaced by 7340, and I`m hearing this on 5040 which they think won`t be running until 0300! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9744.60, April 21 at 0040, S7-S9 open AM carrier and off just after tune-in. Uplooked later, seems like it would be from R. Cairo in Spanish at 0045-0200; A-17 alternate being 12005. I was of course hoping for some sign of Bahrain on 9745-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.95-AM, April 21 at 0055, repetitive music at S7-S8, measured at 0124 seeming talk and music at same time. A few logs here include a Liquid Radio ID heard at 0057:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34311.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.9 FM, April 20 at 1925 UT I notice that KOKF OKC is in a far-right anti-Obama talkshow, while adjacent 91.1 KKRD Enid is in usual praise music. Normally until now these two were always in // with Air One; you couldn`t even hear a break tuning between them. WTFDA Database still shows them both with that, ``Christian CHR/Rock``:

KOKF 90.9 EDMOND OK USA 7.8 7.8 451.0 451.0 35-33-37 97-29-06 3601 Air 1 Air 1 AIR ONE CHRISTIAN CHR/ROCK
KKRD 91.1 ENID OK USA 0.2 0.2 97.0 97.0 36-23-48 97-52-38 2C25 1073KKRD - AIR ONE CHRISTIAN CHR/ROCK

So apparently KOKF has changed to another program source, at least part of the time; does Air One also have a talk channel? Since I find them both so disgusting, it may be a while before I can figure out from monitoring what`s going on.

At 1720 UT check April 21, 90.9 is back to praise music but 91.1 is off! We`ve just had storms blow thru, so a quick check of other frequencies: 88.3 Family Radio translator is off (altho not unusual), other translators: 89.1 is in dead air, 105.5 is off. OKC had much worse storms and many more power outages than Enid, flooding and power poles snapped along May Avenue; cursory check does not find any OKC FM stations AWOL (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 FM, April 20 at 1926 UT check, KAMG-LP Enid is still off, might as well be permanently as it was nothing but a satellator for a Spanish gospel-huxter network (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [and non]. 13805, UT Friday April 21 at 0037, JBA wobbly carrier is here, with hardly anything else on 22mb except 13740 Cuba. HFCC on 13805 shows only two imaginary registrations for R. Rossii via Irkutsk due south at 12-13 & 13-14. Aoki has the answer: nothing but VOA Tibetan via THAILAND, at 0000-0100 only on Fridays and of course *jammed by the ChiCom. It`s one of those broadcasts on a different frequency every day of the week, just to keep the jamming controllers busy, and confuse would-be listeners. Aoki shows current 00-01 lineup:
Sun 13810, Mon 13640, Tue 13630, Wed 13670, Thu 13690, Fri 13805, Sat 13760 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4630-USB, UT Fri April 21 at 0104, Manatee 91 contacting weaker NCS which sounds like Roskot(?) 92. I figure this is CAP, from Florida? Does anyone have a handy table of CAP tactical callsigns for each state?

4627-USB, UT Fri Apr 21 at 0105, another net 3 kHz below the CAP, probably more of same from different region in favorite evening timeslot. Main station makes a beep at end of each transmission.

4041-USB, UT Fri April 21 at 0108, Army MARS net A7A, one specific call being AAR7JO.

4027-USB, UT Fri April 21 at 0108, another Army MARS net, A4A. At 0110 this one is making a digital racket.

4017-USB, UT Fri April 21 at 0110, yet another weak net, probably MARS. Seems everyone likes to gather circa 8 or 9 pm local, a peak time for T-storms this yearpart (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7195-LSB, April 21 at 0051, W8P special event station in Michigan making quick contacts, 0053 finally explained as for the 100th anniversary of MI State Police. W8P searched on qrz.com says:

``Join the Livingston Amateur Radio Klub (W8LRK) April 15th through April 30th 2017 as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Michigan State Police Department. By making contact with W8P you'll be able to receive a Special Event QSL card.

Look for us around 3.85 LSB, 7.185 [sic] LSB, 14.226 USB, and 21.3 USB as well as the CW band and JT-65 frequencies.

W8P on the HF bands now April 15th 2017! We wish thank the men and women of the Michigan State Police by honoring them with an On-Air celebration of the 100th Anniversary. QSL cards will be sent only via the following method. . .`` and nothing about SWLs being considered (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed first SW airing Thursday April 20 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, fair. First airing on WBCQ also confirmed Thu Apr 20 at 2330 on 9330.0v-CUSB, good S9+10. Next:

Note: 9455 is still not activated as of April 21, 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. 7490, Thu April 20 at 2300, WBCQ with `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot`, which he describes as ``a clandestine musical variety program that features everything from everywhere EXCEPT songs that you are probably familiar with``, as usual fun to hear. Followed at 2330 by repeat of `Camp Constitution Radio` which originally airs exactly three days earlier, and the Monday time only is announced (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, April 20 at 1919, once again KVOH is on later than scheduled 1900*; must be quite flexible, and we continue to wonder if extensions are caused by late starts after *1400 when we never hear it any more, but maybe just because the MUF can`t build up that high that soon after sunrise. Now amid supplications, a very public prayer performance by the #1 Spanish gospel huxter heard on station, replete with keywords, like ``padre`` every few seconds, etc., etc., believing that his god as projected, must be utterly craving of constant praise, and maybe with that will come thru with what the preacher thinx he merits (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5972.2-USB, April 21 at 0058, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS, very poor. Noticed while unsuccessfully seeking Chaski on 5980 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7200-LSB, April 21 at 0048, favorite spot for jhamming consisting of music loop reminiscent of Firedragon, intermittent, then more like bluegrass; meanwhile, otherhams try to ignore and talk thru it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1729 UT April 21

Thursday, April 20 2017

Hauser
** BRAZIL [non]. 11780, April 19 at 1348, JBA carrier; could RNA/RNB be back? No, scheduled this hour is CRI Myanmarianese via Kunming. I`ve ceased reporting non-logs of 6180 and this, but keep checking in case they ever recur (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 15110, April 19 at 1357, a very wobbly carrier gets our attention, unlike all other weak signals on 19m. Probably Doppler flutter caused by unstable ionosphere rather than transmission defect. Scheduled is VOA Chinese via THAILAND, and consequently ChiCom *jamming. Still wobbling but weaker after 1400, when the site changes to PHILIPPINES for another hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 5979, April 20 at 1227, JBA carrier indicating 15 kW PBS Gannan is still on this strange frequency instead of original 5970 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6100, April 20 at 1229, RHC Spanish with FE CCI, presumably CRI Russian, 500 kW, 55 degrees from Beijing site during this hour. Maybe not such a good idea for RHC to activate the same frequency previously on at 0500-0700 only in English; also new on // 6060, old 6000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5060, 4980, 4850, 4500, April 20 at 1224, JBA carriers, all matching the four domestic language services of PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi. 4850 is a bit stronger, rather than Chinese 5060. All barely detectable vs S9+10 local line noise level on 59-66m. These run November-April only, per WRTH, replaced May-October by frequencies in the 7, 9 and 11 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 15540, April 19 at 1759, VP carrier, 1800 some music, probably national anthem with R. Kuwait opening reactivated trihour in English. I`ve yet to see logs of any other transmissions resumed since this appeared a dekaday ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1874, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 800, April 20 at 1303 UT, after Mex NA, sign-on by a station with address in Ciudad JuÃrez, seems to mention FM 102.7. As usual, a struggle to copy weak signal, no borderblaster, with near-local KQCV OKC nulled as much as possible.

XEROK, Radio CaÃÃn is not known to have an FM, but adding that is certainly the trend on both sides of la frontera. Wikipedia gives website as http://calibre800.com/ but that`s the newscast it carries, not the station per se, and no sign of an FM mentioned there. 102.7 may be wrong, as there is a K-love translator on that in nearby Anthony TX, altho as such would be subject to bumping by a US non-translator, and presumably Mexican (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, April 20 at 0555, RNZI inbooming at S9+20, 0600 news, while the rest of 25 and even 31m are virtually dead. Location3! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1390, April 20 at 0609 UT, local KCRC is open carrier/dead air. STILL so at next check 1211 UT --- I bet it was thus all night, no one caring or noticing at station which lost plugin from a sports network. Sibling 107.1 KNID is still alive at 1221 UT check, you bet! That`s what matters. By next check 1345 UT, KCRC has resumed stupid sportstalk.

Lack of splatter made DXing 1380 and 1400 easier, but nothing definite; two SS on 1380, probably Houston and Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1873 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 19 at 1315 on WRMI 9955, fair above pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Also confirmed Wed Apr 19 at 2100 on WBCQ webcast, but 7490 not checked. Also missed checking Wed Apr 19 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB.

** U S A. 11580, Thursday April 20 at 1304, poor signal from WRMI, surprised to hear Keith Perron interviewing Mark Fahey about his adventures in Korea North; not a time previously known for any PCJ programming on WRMI --- oh, it`s part of `Viva Miami` this week, as outroed by Jeff at 1313. VM has been running during this slot for weeks, tho never appearing on the schedule grid and now I can`t get it to finish loading for another check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6780, April 19 at 0543, S9-S6 AM carrier; still there at 1305, weakening by 1354. 6780 is probably an ISM Part 15 device, like could be on its second harmonic frequency 13560, where nothing in particular is now audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BULGARIA. 5900, April 19 at 0112, VP signal but sure sounds like Brother Scare mentioning The Overcomer. 5890 WWCR not on yet, but similar talk on 5850 WRMI inbooming, not expected to match. Latest sked for Secretbrod I can find from Ivo Ivanov shows:

``SECRETLAND Reception of Brother HySTAIRical via SPL on March 25
1658-0200 5900 SCB 050 kW / 306 deg to WeEu English, not 1400-2400``

As I tune further on 49m, brief RF noise burst above the background level as my streetlite ignites at *0116; sky at sunset is not clear but cloudily colorful, officially 0108* tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, April 18 at 1910, no signal from RHC English, normally the SSOB at this hour, while 15520 & 15390 Spain are audible poorly; not rechecked until 1957 wrapup when 15140 is on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.08, April 19 at 0103, poor signal with rock music, so certainly not my local sportster fifth harmonic; 0105 spoken spiel extolling the F-word, and providing several uncensored examples of how it may be employed. Several logs here say it was The Crystal Ship:

** PERU. 5980, April 18 at 0052, not even a JBA carrier from R. Chaski to time; must be totally off. April 19 at 0101:30 tune-in, not audible either. Last catch was a week ago, April 12 until 0100:58.5* so at the usual slippage rate it should be about 46 seconds later, until 0101:44.5 if it were still running at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9770, April 19 at 0133, open ~S9 carrier, dead air from V. de TurquÃa which promptly cuts off the air. // 9870 with Turkish music is S6. Recheck at 0140, both are on at about equally poor levels with more music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1873 monitoring: confirmed Monday April 17 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, good; also confirmed UT Tuesday April 18 at 0051 the 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+40. Also confirmed Tue Apr 18 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair-good; also confirmed Tue Apr 18 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, F-G. Next:
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455? to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE

** U S A. 11580, April 19 at 0136, hot DX news: R. Bangladesh English broadcast at 1230 is on two new frequencies, 15525 and 12030, likewise V. of Islam at 0800. More DX news about KTWR and Abu Dhabi as heard ``here in Sri Lanka`` --- o yes, it`s Victor Goonetilleke, and the news is very, very cold, as this is a vintage playback of `Media Network Minus` during the PCJ Radio International hour on WRMI, from when, 20 or 25 years ago?

As of 0330 UT April 19, I see that the WRMI transmission schedule
http://tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
has finally replaced 6855 with 9455 for #6 at 285 degrees, but the 24-hour schedule of programming matching diverse other transmitters seems not to have changed at all, so far. I am yet to hear 9455 back on the air. Checked for it April 18 at 2130 during WOR on 15770 which used to be // 6855. 9455 used to be one of WRMI`s weakest frequencies here, but not sure if on same antenna. Anyhow in the summer, day and night, it should do better than deleted 6855 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.82-AM, UT Wed April 19 at 0107, YL discussing ham radio, S9+20 but noisy, from WBCQ. So `Amateur Radio Roundtable` is still on winter frequency, soon QSY to 9330? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, April 18 at 1911, KVOH on late at S9, still with praise music in Spanish; off by next check 1957 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. IBOC checkup on major CBS AM stations, April 19 at 0148-0150 UT: NOT heard around 1160 KSL, 1120 KMOX, 830 WCCO, 780 WBBM; maybe still on 670 WSCR; noise definitely still infesting 1080 KRLD. Altho updated 21 March 2017, I think quite a few more here are now ex-IBOC:

UNIDENTIFIED. 6174.0-USB, April 19 at 0119, 2-way Spanish intruders, QRMing the JBA carrier on 6173.9 no doubt R. Tawantinsuyo, Perà (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
