Glenn Hauser logs September 28-29, 2017  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 29 2017

Hauser
** BOLIVIA. 5935.01+, Sept 28 at 2350, again a JBA carrier fighting high local noise level radiated out of a lamp which needs to be turned off, from presumed R. Yura before WWCR creams it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Sept 29 at 0602, RHC English is still on here starting another hour repeat. Nominal close on this frequency is 0600; probably will chop it off abruptly when they get around to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17730, Sept 29 at 1311 no signal from RHC nor at 1354, but 17580 is very poorly audible. I had first found algo on 15730 and thought it might be a mistake for 17730, but going back to 15730 it`s off shortly later before I can check for //. Meanwhile 15370 is inbooming. Finally at 1420, 17730 is on, with poor S8 music and 17580 is now off, while 15370 continues at S9+40.

RHC website is still displaying the B-14 schedule!!
http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/estaticas/frecuencias
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

NDXC/Aoki currently for A-17 shows:
15370 at 1300-1500
15730 at 2230-0030
17580 at 1100-1400
17730 at 1100-1500
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 3325, Sept 29 at 1205 news in Indonesian from RRI Palangkaraya, apparently alone, altho 10 minutes earlier Bougainville seemed still on too. 1233, YL with love song in English, 1235 YL & OM dialog in Indonesian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525.940, Sept 29 at 1357, very poor S4-S6 music, but obviously VOI is back after a break, and once again bumped up frequency almost one kHz; different transmitters? I had been checking the 9525 area almost every morning, and nothing heard since September 13. Atsunori Ishida also reports ``9526`` first today from 1155 during Chinese, but ``9525`` low modulation carrier had been on earlier at *0936-0949*. So they gave up on that one, fired up the other one. Later I see that Wolfgang BÃschel agrees on this precise frequency. After 1400, no QRM from 9525.0; this season we no longer have to cope with CRI, but HFCC shows KBS at 14-16, wooden? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6040, Sept 29 at 1300, very poor signal S7-S9 with Shiokaze music, ex-5965 where it had been for several weeks. Ron Howard reported the change occurred yesterday Sept 28 when the broadcast was in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6170, Sept 29 at 1241, surprised to find RNZI already on here, instead of from 1259; concluding a BBCWS item about ``maggot masters`` on `The Food Chain`, to be back next week at 1:15 am Saturday. Nothing on 7425, and this is good S9+20, still not likely on NNW antenna only, which used to be the case at 11-13 UT only, whatever the frequency. Then some music. 1248 YL DJ stumbles over time check as ``eleven and a half minutes to two on 101 FM``, more songs, ``I Need Your Love``. WRTH 2017 page 300 shows RNZ National multiple FM transmitters all over the country are only in the 101s; what a branding idea!

So DST of UT+13 has started in NZ (never mind the dateline), first thing Saturday morning rather than Sunday at 2 am local as in North America? NO, timedanddate.com shows it already started last Sunday September 24 when 2 am became 3 am. This has obviously caused confusion in the SW scheduling, perhaps to be fixed in a day or few, as the 1258 QSY should stay at same UT regardless of local clox. Has 6170 been running before 1300 already since Sept 24? But most of the programming, from National will have to be one UT hour earlier.

1257 fade down another timecheck in peculiar backward and semi-minute format, ``two and half to two`` to QSY announcement from ``this frequency`` (whatever) to 6170, but we are already there! Canned announcer is totally out of touch with reality. There is no break or change in strength, but we are treated to almost two minutes of uninterrupted Bell Bird IS (does it have a name, like RA`s defunct kookaburra, Jacko?? BTW, parts of Australia don`t go on DST until one week later, October 1).

1300 into news from RNZ National, leading with evacuation of thousands from Ambae Island in Vanuatu where there is ash and acid rain falling, expecting an all-out eruption. 1307 news ends as from ``RNZ International``, not RNZ Pacific which is supposedly the politically correct name now, and into `Dateline Pacific`. Still fairly audible by 1355 but fading down, a sesquihour after sunrise here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3308-USB, Sept 29 at 1153, AFA5ML is NCS for an Air Force MARS net, which is now ``free`` allowing random comments about the weather (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Thursday September 28 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.15v-CUSB, poor S4. Next:
Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Thu Sept 28 at 2030, a week after discovering the secret hour of WRMI programming, 20-21 UT, replacing Brother Scare, I check again, and here is `Frecuencia al DÃa`, replete with self-promotion, following some fill music, presumably after daily Radio Prague in English.

9955, Fri Sept 29 at 1309, no signal from WRMI, must be off, clearing the way for pulse jamming against nothing; 9455 & 9395 WRMIs are OK. 9955 still absent at 1355 and 1423 chex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sept 29 at 1402, KVOH with distorted music and wobbling carrier, but not quite as bad as yesterday; S8-S9 but faded way down to S5 by 1419 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search September 29 at 1209-1217, a few minutes before sunrise here, all from WSW, u.o.s: 774, 702, 828, 891, 1098-west, 1548 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 860, Sept 29 at 1221 UT, Mexican music, ID over it as ``La Compera`` or something like that; DF from WSW/ENE which could put it in the US rather than Mexico. KNAI Phoenix? That`s Radio Campesina, and this word has only three syllables. At 1224 UT definite TC for 5:24 am = UT -7 zone, which means it has to be AZ, Sonora or BCN, as there are no such stations in CA or NV, and ``La Contrera`` (?), plug for Mexico City earthquake aid.

Sonora`s 860 is XEHX Ciudad ObregÃn, which is widely shown to be ``La Mia``. BCN`s is XEMO Tijuana, ``La Poderosa``. So have any of these changed name? (There is/was a La Campera on 1320 in Ciudad JimÃnez, Chihuahua, XEJZ.) Initially atop KKOW KS, making 2.7 Hz SAH, and losing out to its weekdaily polka/birthday spot at 1226 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3385, Sept 29 at 1157, JBA carrier; could RENB, Rabaul be back on air? Also a JBA carrier on 3340, but both of them disappear when I switch from Preamp 2 to 1 on the R75, not the only strange carriers produced on 90m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 1747 UT September 29

Hauser
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Daytime LW beacon bandscan Sept 28 at 2050 UT includes: 356 PTT, 350 RG, and 341 EI. Per http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
356 PTT is Pratt KS, 341 EI is Enid OK of course, but no listing for 350 RG! (NOT to be confused with RG on 352 from Rarotonga!)
MARE Log Summary Aug 2017 reminds us that our RG is still on the air:
350 RG +1.0 -1.0 Oklahoma City OK, Will Rogers World A/P; 03 Apr (HF), 10 Sep (DT) (Glenn Hauser, Great Salt Plains OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1040, Sept 28 driving by the transmitter site of KGWA 960, twice, just west of it on north-south Oakwood Road, I am tuned to one of its spur frequencies, and observe that only at quite close range, it is strongest and clearly audible in noise, just to the north, but a null to the west despite being closest to the 4-tower parallelogram there, thus matching roughly the daytime direxional pattern on 960 itself, NNW/SSE to favor the rest of Enid and incidentally OKC beyond, where it can hardly be missed tuning between WKY and KTOK (if anyone ever does that any more). KGWA spur also on 880 making a SAH with KRVN Lexington NE, plus and minus almost exactly 80 kHz; why? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1360 & 1420, Sept 28 at 1858 UT, the KCRC 1390 Enid spurs are still audible out of town at Helena, making slightly different hets against real 1360 and 1420 stations; but not the second-order ones on 1330 and 1450 I can hear in town (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1090, Sept 28 at 1854 UT, Catholic Radio discussing whether this one or 1190 has a better signal in certain areas, during apparent fundraiser. 1090 is KEXS Excelsior Springs MO, the highest-frequency KC-market station to make it here on midday groundwave, 472 km = 293 miles. Has a CP (no longer merely an APP) for increase from 8 to 10 kW daytime, same pattern with major lobe WSW but broad enough for some of that to the SW (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Sept 28 at 1857 UT, from this angle too still no audible daytime signal from KLEY Wellington KS. Its 250 watts are either off, or extremely direxional away from OK (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1150, Sept 28 at 1856 UT, I am bandscanning on caradio near Helena OK, NW of Enid. This frequency mainly bears KSAL Salina KS, but underneath is C&W music making a fast SAH. The latter could either be 1000-watt KNED McAlester OK, 289 km = 179 miles, or 530-watt KOLJ Quanah TX (across the SW corner of OK), virtually equidistant at 284 km = 176 miles; both with C&W formats and all three of them non-direxional daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1370, Sept 28 at 1859 UT, still no signal audible from KGNO Dodge City KS. Can`t believe it`s funxioning at 5 kW ND which should be making it on daytime groundwave across the Ogallala Aquifer, only 205 km = 127 miles. Is it gone, QRP, or really out of whack direxional away? (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1510, Sept 28 at 1859 UT, promo Rockin` M Theater, car ad for Hays KS, ID for KNNS Larned and KRMR-FM Hays [105.7], 1900 UT Fox ``news`` (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 92.9, Sept 28 at 1920 UT, only thing of interest on an FM bandscan is weak signal in Spanish mixing with weak signal in English. Per WTFDA FM Database, no OKies on 92.9 are SS, but one Kansan:
KMML, (// KSMM 101.5), 92.9, CIMARRON KS, 32.0 kW H&V, 186.0 m HAAT, 37-56-30, 100-18-44, Spanish, REGIONAL MEXICAN, LA MEXICANA. CimarrÃn is between Dodge and Garden Cities, 232 km = 144 miles (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 659, Sept 28 at 1900 UT, The Answer 660 in The Metroplex has QRM from a carrier 1 kHz below it which cuts on for 5 seconds, off for 1 second, repeats. Loops east/west. Not coming from my car or anything in it, and not noted anywhere else. Not a harmonic from LW as nothing like it circa 330, 220 or 165 kHz. I`m parked at the military monument just south of Helena OK with three antique tanx, not looping toward them either. Possibly connected with security system at the Helena prison, a few miles away to the NW? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 9690, Sept 28 at 1244, RBA in English still signing off its Myanmar sesquihour claiming to be on 9685 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 28 at 0458, RHC on early with Spanish, weaker than // 6060, until both of them convert to English at 0500, also on weaker 6145 very poor, 6000 stronger (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 15449.880, Sept 27 at 1502, JBA carrier way off-frequency, once again presumed IBB Biblis site as scheduled for R Liberty in Tajik. Wolfgang BÃschel checked a bunch of other Biblis frequencies and found them all within a few Hz of nominal.

15449.874, Sept 28 at 1403, JBA carrier now measured here, gone by 1442 check. Today Wolfgang BÃschel also has it:

``Hi, yes, - I've got it today on Thur Sept 28: 15449.881 kHz exact measured at S=9+20dB signal level on remote SDRs at Athens Greece and Doha Qatar ME. RL Tajik program service. Before 1359 UT heavy signal spill-over from Trincomalee CLN 15430 kHz, 40 kHz wideband signal, I guess. 1359:04 Biblis transmitter switched on air crash, 3rd try to start, - each second and sudden breaks from 1359:01 UT. At 1400:00 UT exact switched to RL Tajik audio feed. vy73 de wolfie`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Sept 27 at 2025, MWV is VG but with deep rolling fades during African Pathways Radio, promoting Christianity to the Heathens. Too bad they won`t include any Rational programming. The two English hours at 18 & 20 UT are now back in season to reach the opposite worldside so well, better than anything else on 16m, except possibly KVOH, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6224-USB, Sept 28 at 1235, NZ coastal weather by robot clearly enunciating each word, which sounds inhuman without normal inflexions, but better readability than some mumbling software other stations use attempting to sound more natural. It`s ZLM, Taupo Maritime Radio, but on the air at a time EiBi shows it to be in a break: 32 minute transmissions starting at 1003 and not again until 1333 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.89v-AM, Sept 27 at 2335, WBCQ with an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` repeat to fill an hour, reminiscing about FCC pirate bust against his Yonkers AM & FM stations on August 12, 1971. Slot vacated by `The Next Chapter`, but if you want to follow Radio Alexandria, the project to broadcast from a ship in the central Pacific, check
http://www.radioalexandria.net/about
where podcasts are available, and nothing about quitting WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sept 28 at 1442, KVOH is S9+30 but heavy distortion, sounds horrible; carrier also wobbling and splattering out to 17763-17877. When will they *ever* get their replacement transmitter going? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 990, Sept 28 at 1226 UT, after failing to pull an ID from a station in English inviting local PSAs, un-nulling the Spanish which is certainly KFCD Farmersville TX, one of the Metroplex stations which hijacked a frequency from poor Wichita Falls: gospel harmonies in Spanish, promo preaching event Sept 30 in Area Code 214, ``tres Ãngeles`` codeword for that 7D Adventist sect, two IDs in passing, the next at 1231, sound like ``Radio Movimiento`` but not positive about the word. Maybe program rather than station name. Can`t find any correlation online with KFCD, but rather surely unrelated: Radio Movimiento, KPCN-LP 95.9 FM, Portland OR, which is secular about Hispanicism (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Sept 27 at 1437, Republic of Yemen Radio reception improving, husky singing in Arabic, S9 to S9+10 presumably via somesite in SA`UDI ARABIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
