Hauser
** CUBA. 6000, Dec 31 at 0706, RHC English is S9+40, suptorted but sufficiently readable, better than usual; while // 6100 & 6165 are also undermodulated but not distorted, while 6060 has completely different loud modulation. 5040 is already off for the final hour of the cycle. Aoki shows 6000 is QuivicÃn site, the others all Bauta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15507, 15438, 15301, 15232, 15164, 15096, 15029, 14961, Dec 31 at 1447, approx. centers of filthy dirty plus/minus 68-69 kHz spurblobs out of 15370 RHC transmitter mis-modulated by Arnie `En Contacto`, with news of Hermano Stair and his impact on private US SW stations. I can only make this out when briefly tuned to fundamental, which until now has sounded normal itself, but it has become undermodulated and breaking up, as so much power is being squeezed out onto the spurs, like stepping on a tube of toothpaste, blaaatt. 15232 of course also QRMs another intentional RHC frequency, 15230, tsk2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9900, Dec 31 at 1421, VIRI IS at S9-S6, 1423 NA, opening the hour in Hindi, due east from Sirjan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 9750, UT Dec 31, NHK in Japanese with some excited chat, VP S6-S7 but the best we can hear it, 1500 timesignal and apparently celebrating arrival of 2018y. Without the ceremony we used to enjoy years ago with drums, countdown, etc. At least this frequency, 300 kW at 290 degrees, is now scheduled until 1600* instead of cutting off right at the NY.

The best signal for live programming from Europe at Jahrwechsel is traditionally Spain on 9690, but will they keep it on past 2300 UT? Used to play a lot of music in English during the preceding hour, celebrations from some plaza, no doubt Madrid not Barcelona (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7390, UT Dec 31 at 1404, RNZ National via RNZ Pacific, national weather forecast, one hour later will have coastal FC; 1305 All-Night Programme, plugging `Science in Axion`, presumably de BBC, at ``3:30`` = 1430 UT, review of 2017y. But first, a short story. It is already 2018y per NZ clox even discounting the pretend-extra DST hour they have cribbed, never mind the Dateline (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Dec 31 at 0714, African music, VP, so R. Herwa International is now on as finally admittedly on the latest WRMI sked update; also at 1930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 7805.62-LSB approx., distorted ham net with roll call, unstable. I figure it`s second harmonic from 80m band, rather than spur out of 40m band, and sure enough, it`s from 3903.00-LSB, so why isn`t the harmonic on exactly 7806? NCS never gives call but at S9+40/50 could be next door in Enid! Only his signal is heard on harmonic, so I continue listening on 3903. Stations called by first name, callsign and town, seemingly all in OK except for one near Denison TX across the Red River. Many but not all reply with friendly personal greetings. Obviously these guys have known each other for a long time. Some give local temps in the F teens or less, e.g. 9 degrees in Blackwell (for me it`s 11 in Enid).

NCS is addressed as Ron, and BTW there is some background noise with him. 1414 finally NCS call is WD5HUT. It`s the ``Oklahoma --- something --- Emergency Net`` as someone mentioned once in passing. ARRL/FCC Lookup shows: CLINTON, RONALD L, WD5HUT, 3415 W OKLA[homa], ENID, OK 73703; so he is only a few miles away. The final Nets To You from more than 10 years ago had this entry: ``1400 1300 3900 OKLAHOMA EMERGENCY Sunday [Has been on 3902-3903 recently due to QRM]`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 & 9455, Dec 31 at 1426, WRMI ending the last `Wavescan` of 2017 with a bit of Swiss music. In the last DX/SWL/MEDIA Programs we had the Sun 1400 airing only on 9455. This secret airing which has existed for quite some time cannot be seen on the WRMI frequency or program sked grids (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.121-CUSB, Dec 31 at 1427 UT, surprised to find good S9 to S9+10 signal, obviously WBCQ, on a frequency which is just fine when used after sunrise. Louder and clearer than neighbor 9265-AM WINB, only S9. Altho ``compatible``, music still sounds better in USB when tuned precisely. C&W, Dolly & Willie, ``From Here to the Moon and Back``, soon DJ ID as Carl (sp?) O`Donnell (sp?), who is a pastor in NB, doing only his third radio show, and plans more featuring country and bluegrass --- but he never names the show! Every week at this time. More tunes have a gospel subtext as one would expect. 1454 is wrapping up episode for NYE with another George Hamilton IV song, ``Auld Lang Syne``; 1457 contact info: blacksalmonlad@gmail.com as he used to be a fisherman. He`ll now try to check his email more than once every triweek, as he wants to know from where people are hearing him. So I`ll tell him about this. Not clear whether he is aware he is also on shortwave! For the past two Sunday mornings too? Cell 506-221-0147; or via ``Kicks FM`` 94.7 WBCQ. 1459 some Ricky Skaggs runs over hourtop. Karl is a true Canadian as he pronounces about ``aboat``. After a quick check for 2018 arriving on Japan 9750, back to this:

1503 restaurant ad and drive safely from Marston? (NB or ME?), WBCQ-FM ID mentioning several towns, but not Monticello? Late, from 1504 Town Hall News, 1508 optional cutaway, This-Day-in-History, 1510 Kix-FM jingle, and forecast highs for next few days in F: 5, 2, 3, 12, 16 and with C equivalents. Still going with country music past 1530, off at 1547 recheck --- no, it`s not off, just diminished to very poor S5 under the local noise level, why?

As for the WBCQ FM slogan, every station spells it differently, so could even be ``Qycs``. WTFDA FM Database does not help, only as ``Classic Country 94.7``, 6/6 kW at 95m so it must not cover very far into NB. Of course, this transmission is not shown on the WBCQ program schedule for 9330 with incomparably greater coverage. Maybe they were just testing the transmitter with some convenient programming.

Then at 1654 I just got this notice From Allan: ``Hi Gang, 9330 on 24/7 for awhile. Good time for some alternative programming. Suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Allan`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12056-12057 & 12073-12074, Dec 31 at 1437, approx. plus/minus 8-9 kHz spur peaks of hashcrap out of WEWN English 12065 transmitter, just like accompany 15610 when it`s strong enough. QRMs weak 12075 station, which would be VOA Radio Ashna in Pashto via Kuwait. BTW, NDXC/Aoki shows wrong language for 12065 WEWN at 12-15, Spanish instead of English, as they are discussing some ex-pope (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4069.826-CW, Dec 31 at 0656, ZN beacon barely audible again, location unknown but probably USA. The pauses between the letters are virtually the same to the ear, so could equally be NZ. Presumed ZN since known as a ``zebra beacon`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1741 UT December 31

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6150, Dec 31 at 0001, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY has just started, rock music underway, VG S9+10/20 on new frequency, ex-5960 where there is nothing. No QRM ACI or CCI to affect 6150 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Dec 30 at 2229, martial music at S4-S6, sounds German; 2233 ID as ``Radio USA, with a Nazi holiday``, more lofi band music, maybe authentic from the era, instrumental and some choral; if Horst Wessel Lied is included, I do not recognize it. 2238 fading, losing to local HNL, but R75 noise blanker helps. 2247 ``Nazi Christmas on Radio USA`` but never heard any carols. 2252 says something about Ohio, ID again, and greeting to ``the Grand Wizard of the Missouri Ku Klux Klan, sieg-heil!`` and some more music; 2254 fading more, longer announcement mentioning ``500 hours``? Maybe another broadcast time? Brief rendition of ``Deutschland Ãber Alles``, and off just before 2257*. Then a few seconds of ``running water``, coincidental?

Now I look up what others have reported on HFU:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,39558.0.html
Classified as a parody; one guy IDed most of the music, and it was 500 dollars, not hours, for a T-shirt (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1910 monitoring. Alan Gale, England, says the Sat 1531 on HLR 6190-CUSB was not audible this week. Sat Dec 30 at 2230, WOR IS well audible, a good S9+10 on WBCQ 9329.970-CUSB, sounds like it could be running full power. By 2300 when Blalock starts blasting, has drifted to 9330.025 (9330 already had a music prÃlude at 2225 tune-in, before starting The Planet ID & IS runup loop). Also confirmed Sat Dec 30 at 2300 VG on WRMI 11580, S9+30 to S9+10, but by 2310 starting some deep fades. We will have to wait two more weeks until Jan 13 before the QSY to 7780 is supposed to go into effect. By 0200 UT Sun Dec 31 at 0200, 11580 is a JBA carrier for the next WOR repeat. Also confirmed UT Sun Dec 31 at 0437 about halfway thru, so started circa 0421 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+20/30 but with CW QRM, the lower/longer 160m band crammed with CW contesters. Next:
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW [not pre-empted]
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 [or #1911?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1911?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, and podcast access:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WRMI has now put up a new 9955 program schedule effective January 1, already.
http://www.worldofradio.com/WRMI9955
Among other changes, the Wed 1415 broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO has been dropped. That leaves only UT Mon 0430 on 9955. So far the times on other frequencies are still shown.

Parallel frequency setups seem to be changing. Sat Dec 30 at 2213 I find that unlistenable now half-hour `Dub Politico` is not only on 9955 but also 11580, while on weekdays they would be different. Oldies music inhabits all three, 9455, 9395 and 7780, but 7780 is off by 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.09v, Sat Dec 30 at 2302, WBCQ S9+20 with ``Ride of the Valkyries`` theme for `SW Saturday Night`; then J P Ferraro is relieved that there is no more terrible stuff to talk about this year with only one 30 hours left in 2017y; seems to have a rumble on his audio. WBCQ needs your help now more than ever after the transmitter fire, which he says is also what happened to its predecessor. And 3265 unit is the same kind of transmitter, so will not be activated until the air plenum which caused the fire on #1 is replaced on it, and with weather in northern Maine frightful, that won`t be completed until it warms up.

5129.807v, Dec 31 at 0002, WBCQ starting Radio Timtron Worldwide, S9+10.

9330v-CUSB, Dec 31 at 0004, sounds like Blalock is blasting for a second hour, but has faded to a JBA carrier after having been S9+10 when it started at 2230 with WORLD OF RADIO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AZORES [and non]. 5598-USB, Dec 30 at 0455, Santa Maria contacting various planes, Delta, American, interrupted by selcalls and talkovers as traffic is heavy on the North Atlantic red-eye paths; English is lingua franca of air traffic control, but this guy has a pronounced Portuguese accent. Refers to 3016 secondary where nothing heard here. Then stronger New York also on 5598 contacting more planes for position reports, etc. and refers to Gander on 5616 and 8891. The former USB also heard active here at 0501 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIG DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6011.732, Dec 30 at 0625, JBA carrier, and a stronger carrier on 6010.021v, with some music, and audibly varying. Per Dave Valko log Dec 26 around 2300 in Portuguese, R. InconfidÃncia was on 6011.74, and EiBi Dec 29 has it on 6011.7. No other stations known now around 6010, so 6010.021 is presumably LVC, far too close to nominal (and 5910v is off) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9776-9782 & 9798-9804 approx., strong spur noise fields out of the superstrong 9790 CRI Cantonese relay, 250 kW at 305 degrees. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7140 & 7180, Dec 30 at 0445, DRM noise centered around these, obviously jamming Voice of Broad Masses of Eritrea; no carrier detectable amid 7140, but JBA one on signature 7181.555. There is another carrier on 7180.028, but of course no other broadcasters are known as all are INTRUDERS into the hamband. BTW, Aoki/NDXC shows VOBME on 7183, but they are always right near 7181.555! The DRM noise is hardly distinguishable from band noise level in AM mode, but more so in SSB mode (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 6115, Dec 30 at 0507, taking my own advice to try for Congo this early, but already hearing music, sure sounds like J-pop from R. Nikkei 2 where it`s only 2+ pm, but twilight/dark over most of the GC path; no signal from 9760 to make a //. But there is a second weaker undercarrier on 6115 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-DSB, AM? Heard both on USB and LSB, but LSB weaker. A reduced carrier? It`s unstable, fluxuating with modulation. Maybe it`s the electronica music at certain prolonged tones/pitches which seems to form a carrier. Past 2300 with no announcements; 2307 hip hop with some vocals. 2320 ID only once when I am not expecting it, and can`t copy first word but ``something, Radio`` by synth OM voice. I don`t think it`s Clever Name Radio this time. Multiple logs here say it called itself ``Unidentified Radio``.

** SPAIN. 15390, Dec 29 at 1909, REE is still scratchy and distorted on this frequency to S America. Today by 2230, 15 MHz is no longer propagating. Meanwhile, Wolfgang BÃschel says for him it is not so, any longer, and suggests an explanation why I hear it differently:

``Maybe your location in Oklahoma gets a SIDELOBE signal from the curtain antenna at Noblejas, or their SLEWING installation? On various Perseus SDR's I couldn't note any scratching audio; sorry. Maybe there are unclean signals later on towards transmission end at 2300 UT? 73 wolfie``

Wolfie, This seems unlikely --- anyhow, Saturday Dec 30 at 1605 UT I check and find 15390 quite distorted, carrier also unstable, compared to 15500 which is fine. Surely you and anyone else in any direxion would find the same now? How about some reports from others. Also via UTwente at 1612 the same distortion is heard on 15390. Replies:

``At 1644 here in Alberta 15390 is loud but distorted and very over
modulated sounding. 15500 is OK. 73 Don VE6JY Moman``

``re Spain 15390 kHz. Only 3 txs on air today. Yes, you are right, checked 1658 UT much distorted audio scratching, the screenshot picture and Audacity recording are totally different, to the monitoring audio block in past days.

At present 9690 kHz is an good audio example, how the 15390 kHz signal was excellent back in past 2-3 days ... when I monitored that.

11685 kHz is OFF AIR at 17/18 UT tonight. 15500 kHz is on air, but not as strong as the two others. So, there are different txs available at Noblejas, and maybe also different feeder/antennas too. Is there a 5th TX unit available? > Something's always wrong at REE Noblejas. 73 wolfie`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1910 monitoring: not confirmed UT Sat Dec 30 after 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: no signal audible (9265 WINB is fair, 9395 WRMI VG; 9370 has a JBA carrier, but WWRB is already VG on 3185 this time). Missed checking Sat Dec 30 at 1531 on HLR 6190-CUSB via UTwente, but at 1600 heard nothing but adjacent splash. Next:

** U S A. 7780, Dec 29 at 2250, WRMI with `The Power Hour`, fair S9 to S9+10, // 9395 also reads S9 to S9+10 but sounds much stronger. Also // 9455. 11580 at this hour has RAE at S9 to S7 with multilingual IDs, presumably during Italian. From Jan 8, 11580 programming is to overtake 7780, so maybe TPH weekdays will remain on the other two (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Fri Dec 29 at 2322, WRMI is replaying last week`s sesquihour special `Noches con Mirka` with chatter and Cuban music from Little Habana; started at 2200 and normally would be over at 2300, but once again this week, `Happy Station` year-end show (NOT `Media Network Plus`; both are PCJ produxions) starts half an hour late at 2330. I suppose its full hour also overcomes `Viva Miami` at 0000, but what about `Noticiero/Radio Libertad` which is supposed to start at 0015? Not checked.

9455, UT Sat Dec 30 at 0437, surprised to find that this frequency is // weaker 9955, with a gospel huxter. Skedgrid does show System B at 0430-0500 on both 9455 and 9955 as ``Eslovaquia``, but the 9955 program grid shows that one hour earlier at 0330, and at 0430-0445 Sat, `Upward Look Forum` & 0445-0500 `Bible Commentary`. Maybe a mistake, but if it hold up, that`s another frequency for WORLD OF RADIO at 0430 UT Monday, and `Hobart Radio International` at 0430 UT Sunday!

All three 9 MHz channels of WRMI have almost faded out by 0500, but at 0516, 9955 is still on with a song, unknown if still // 9455. Sked on 9955 now is `Viva Miami` which does not play music. By 0611, 9955 appears to be really off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.87v, Fri Dec 29 at 2252, WBCQ with vintage ``Winter Wonderland`` song on `Behavior Night`, a really neat program at 2200 when I am usually otherwise occupied. I keep checking WBCQ. At 2300 changes to Brother Scare, for the gratis legacy broadcasts Allan has pledged to maintain no matter what BS did or is convicted of. By 0000 UT Sat Dec 30, I have switched to webcast, and to my surprise it`s not `Fred Flintstone`, but a replay of last week`s `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. Cut off incomplete at 0100, replay a few words, then re-opening with live new show.

Says he and Angela are back in DeLand of Fla for a few days, since Xmas. They only went back to ME in winter because of the transmitter fire, etc. The feed from Studio 9 is lost for a couple minutes at 0121-0123, replaced by fill music. When he comes back on, unaware of this, is finishing talking about a new program starting a week from today by someone named Francis/Frances? Will be a live phone-in, at 7-8 pm ET, as the person does not do internet or cassette tapes. So this will replace `Flintstone`, but if Allan explained what happened to Fred, it was lost in the outage! We heard he had health and financial problems.

Fred is still on the website at
http://schedule.wbcq.com/index.php?fn=p&id=17
so one could ask him at fred7415@hotmail.com if that still be vigent, as the rest of the info is *very* old:

``Description --- Music from the late fifties through the present, ranging from Rolling Stones to Zebra and late doo-wap to eighties hair bands. Highly recommended! Be sure to crank up the volume and attach a subwoofer to your receiver.

Notes --- Fred surprised his long time listeners on Easter weekend this year with the revelation that he is a born again Christian. This happened by chance (design?) when we were simulcasting WBCQ's webcast on a low power community FM radio station.

Fred's show is consistently good and we reiterate, highly recommended. A great test for the old tube type radio for hearing how good WBCQ's 7415 service sounds when conditions are right.

Moves a half hour later and adds a half hour effective November 6. New time with be Saturdays from 8 to 9PM ET on 7415. On hiatus from April 30, 2005 to Thursday, August 24, 2006 (New date and time 6pm on 7415).``

Only one old episode is in the rni archives:
http://radionewyorkinternational.com/archives/
fredflintstone <DIR> 1 item 8 Mar 2013 The Fred Flintstone Music Show

AW goes on to mention all the times and days available on WBCQ with BS gone after 9 pm ET. Also says that `Mitch & Kathy` might not be on much longer since they are 6 months behind in payments! That`s UT Sun 01-02 on 7490. A little public nudge?

Before his arrest, Brother Scare had told Allan that TOM had spent 42 megadollars over the years on radio time! Yes, SW stations will be taking a hit without all his input, but WBCQ will be OK. Station will be doing some big things in 2018, rebuilding transmitters, etc., very busy during the summer season, as not much can be done in winter, extremely cold. But he can`t tell us all the details.

0155 benedixion, 0200 canned Allan promo cuts off live Allan, and sign-off, as AW mentioned earlier that he has ordered 7490 to be turned off at 0200 UT with no BS to ensue. Webstream remains silent for a while, but rechecked a couple hours later, rock music is playing on it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. UNIDENTIFIED. 9370, Dec 30 at 0033, JBA carrier, maybe WWRB? No, BS already moved to blasting 3185 today. Nothing else scheduled on 9370, a phantom? No four schedules agree on the 9370 WWRB hours:
HFCC: 13-24
NDXC: 11-01
EiBi: 14-02
WRTH: 12-02
So Dave QSYs whenever he gets around to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 30 at 0502, WTWW-2 is on with Xmasmx, pause for ARRL plug and Happy New Year greeting from canned ham K0AQH in Kansas, so this may keep on a few more days. Had not heard 12105 lately even in daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Dec 30 at 0515, WTWW-1 is off, and no carrier audible on 9475 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
