Hauser
** ANGOLA. 4949.752, Dec 26 at 0234, RNA is S4-S5, noisy but some mod
audible. Checking this to compare with Madagascar, since there are NO
Mozambiquans on SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15283 & 15311 approx., Dec 26 at 1430, spurs of RHC 15140 are
JBA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13564-13574, Dec 26 at 1432, FM spur out of RHC 13700-AM is
very strong wideband centered about 13569, with F# tone, somewhat more
readable than the closer one at 13635 or so, and also found circa:
13767, 13834, 13901, 13967, 14033, 14102. Didn`t get to check the
minus side with breakfast pending, and by 1455 the constellation is
much attenuated. Are ops fiddling with the dials, consciously trying
to suppress these, or is it random whether they will appear at all and
how much for how long? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.933, Dec 26 at 0230, R. Madagasikara stronger than
usual with some modulation JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9690.0, Dec 26 at 1927 on caradio, REE Spain good
with no LAH; therefore, VON must be absent from 9689.9 --- somewhere
else or nowhere? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 95.1 NBFM Part 15 is this year`s frequency for Enid`s
other Xmas sound & light show at a residence in the Pheasant Run
addition on the western edge of the city, as witnessed circa 0130 UT
Dec 26; certainly a better selexion of music, e.g. Mannheim
Steamroller, than the Singing Xmas Trees on 89.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, Dec 26 at 2128, VOA is a JBA carrier, again making me
wonder if site has been switched from Greenville back to Botswana or
somewhere. GB had been inboomable at this hour, unless the daytime MUF
has become pitiful. Also JBA carriers are 15610 WEWN and 15825 WWCR,
but they are about 1 megameter away while GB is almost double and a
suitable skip distance even without sporadic E. The 19m Cubans,
slightly further than Greenville, are as big as ever (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1962 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday December
25 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, JBA. Also confirmed Wednesday December 26 at
2200 on WBCQ 7490.16v, S5-S8 and WRMI 9955, S7-S9, almost
synchronized.

9955 has a medium SAH, from what? The only other 9955 registrant is
HBN = T8WH PALAU at 1800-2200 due west in Chinese, English, but could
be more than they really use. Maybe did not turn off carrier
immediately (and no other modulation heard), and/or ChiCom jamming; or
a second WRMI transmitter/exciter QRMing itself, Ã la KSGL? Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4980, Dec 25 at 2057, JBA which I think is WRMI ID & IS loop
prior to starting at ``top of hour`` (correct in this case).
Meanwhile, 9455 does not come on by 2100, which for a few days had
been carrying Supreme Master TV. Meanwhile2, 9395 is well audible with
Oldies. By 2149, 4980 has improved a little as I hear Jingle Bells and
talk. No RTTY yet on 4985; does it start at a specific time, and
whence? By next check 2335, 4985 RTTY ACI is now going, while 4980 up
to S9+20 plays Vietnamese(?) music; and 9455 is still off.
Furthermore, during this hour, SMTV on 4980 is also // 9395 and 5950.
It was initially scheduled 23-24 on 9395 but that was supposedly
dropped. Retune to 4980 at 2400* just in time to hear the carrier go
off. For now, 4980 is not continuing past 0130 as it did during first
testing yesterday. It could be used as late as 0900 as registered.

4980, Dec 26 at 2130, JBA carrier; and 9455 also a JBA carrier, but
the latter would be IBB Mandarin via Lampertheim, Germany, and/or
ChiCom jamming. That may be why WRMI moved off 9455.

BTW, HFCC shows 9455 also HFCC registered for the imaginary but
pending? new ALGERIA site BEC, 300 kW all the way from 19 to 24.

WRMI skedgrid as of early UT Dec 27 now shows 4980 at 21-24 only with
Supreme Master TV, via XMTR 3, 160 degrees (what was on #3 before?).
4980 is off again after 0000 UT Dec 27.

And one additional entry for SMTV: 14-15 Sunday only, XMTR 1, 44
degrees on 7780 --- when it will be // 15770, which starts at 1400
daily, XMTR 9 at 44 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Dec 26 at 0617, WRMI with hymn ``Rock of Ages``,
rather than RFI English, so no more ``goodness of heart`` SW relays of
RFI? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13690, Dec 26 at 1434, no DRM from WINB for a change despite
M-F 11-17 sked. Strangely, at 2137 I find RTTY centered on 13688, with
zero-beats at 13687.55 and 13688.45. Normally there is no RTTY around
here, so I wonder if that be another data experiment via the WINB
transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 25 at 2338, WTWW-2 Xmasmx, distorted. Some guys
are effusive about the audio quality of this; it may be very strong
and wideband, but often I find the distortion level intolerable.
Driving it too hard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Dec 26 at 0240, no signal from WEWN Spanish, nor at
0607 when yet much higher 11520 WEWN English is audible at S1-S4.
Believe 5970 was also AWOL the night before. Only one transmitter
operable? At 1426 neither 5970 nor daytime Spanish frequency 12050 is
to be heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0424 UT December 27

Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 5055, Mon Dec 24, I happen to awaken at 0926 so check
the private Ozzies: JBA carrier here from presumed 4KZ; no signal on
5045 from Unique Radio which should be playing WOR at 0930 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 284 kHz, Dec 25 at 0622, beacon QD and dash, 500 watts from
The Pas, Manitoba; YYW, 223, Armstrong, Ontario also relogged (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140 & 13700, Dec 25 at 1411, no spurfield detected from
either today; something`s not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [and non]. 11650, Dec 24 at 1903, it`s time for the annual
`Gruss an Bord` special from Norddeutscher Rundfunk, sparkin` around
the world via SW, but of the listed frequencies, this is the only one
detectable, with a JBA carrier. 9800 is totally blocked by VOA Korean
via Philippines. At 1917 I check them via UTwente SDR: 9740 fair with
French song `La Vie en Rose`` sung in German; //9800 is VG, slightly
distorted tho, and no CCI from PHT. // 11650 is also good.

Unfortunately some other frequencies I reposted to the WOR iog and
checked were wrong, even tho quoted from a post claiming they were
``this year`s``. The correct lineup with sites, from BDXC-UK:
1900-2100 6030-gav 6080-nau 9570-mos 9740-nau 9800-iss 11650-iss
2100-2300 6145-nau 6155-gav 9590-iss 9650-mos 9720-nau 9830-iss
gav = Armenia, nau = Germany, mos = Austria, iss = France

Quick check here after 2100: 9650 probably Guinea, 9720 totally
blocked by Cuba (but off at 2115, NDR still not heard); nothing on
9590; 9830 under RTTY but `Stille Nacht` recognized. Their frequency
planning could have been better (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** HAWAII [and non]. 5000, Dec 25 at 1418, both WWV and WWVH audible
despite government shutdown, and the propagation info from WWV: K=0 at
12, no storms past or future. 9 MHz and other bands have quite
fluttery signals so I expect some disturbance is rampant. By 1500 the
K is up to 1. Someone had reported WWVH lacking the prop info at its
scheduled time :45 past the hour.

Steven Michael Kellat, ``alpacaherder``, a federal employee in Ohio,
warned the WOR iog: ``When I looked at NIST's shutdown plan, there
aren't too many people designated excepted [not subject to furlough]
at the Boulder office. The equipment is on auto-pilot and there won't
be anybody immediately nearby if something breaks. If anybody notices
something wrong like the transmitter going off the air please notify
Megacenter at 1-877-4FPS-411 and they'll hopefully relay something to
the right people`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1962, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9835, Dec 25 at 1404, YL in Russian, mentioning Iran, S9 with
flutter. VIRI at 1320-1420, 500 kW, 336 degrees from Sirjan so also
USward. No sign of KBS in English as also listed.

So much for any possibility of Malaysia. WRTH 2019 page 276 still
lists the Sarawak-FM service via Kajang, W Malaysia, 100 kW at 22-16;
while Aoki/NDXC and EiBi claim it`s 24 hours. The last definite log of
this I`ve found was on Sept 2 by Ron Howard as in DXLD 18-36 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1 WBFM, Dec 25 at 0520-0600+ UT, dead air from KUCO-
FM, as the classical feed from WCPE must have failed, and no one
around to fix it; may have started much earlier and lasted much later.
This happens rather too often (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 9810, Dec 25 at 1407, RRI Galbeni in Romanian,
S9+10 with flutter, one of better signals on band, but with some CCI.
Per HFCC that would be CNR via Nanning, i.e. CNR1 per Aoki and EiBi
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 9940, Dec 25 at 1407, R. Thailand news in English about
air pollution, S9-S6 with flutter, better than usual (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 485.9 kHz, Dec 25 at 0124, JBA carrier, maybe a special Xmas
experimental transmission. There are other stronger carriers nearby,
perhaps birdies or local devices. Shortly before 1700 UT Dec 24, I
reposted this to the WOR iog, from the MARE Tipsheet:

``Paul Dobosz: Upcoming LW Opportunities from todayâs ARRL Letter;

Fessenden Commemorative Transmission Set for Christmas Eve

As he's done in years past, Brian Justin, WA1ZMS, of Forest,
Virginia, will commemorate what may have been the first radio
broadcast to include speech and music by experimenter Reginald
Fessenden on Christmas Eve 1906. Justin will fire up his vin-
tage-style transmitter operating on 486 kHz under Experimental
license WI2XLQ to mark the 112th anniversary of Fessenden's
accomplishment. Justin will begin his transmission on December
24 at 1700 UTC and continue until December 26 at 1659 UTC.

Historic accounts say Fessenden played the violin -- or a recor-
ding of violin music -- and read a brief Bible verse, astounding
radio experimenters and shipboard operators who heard the broad-
cast. For his transmitter in 1906, Fessenden used an ac alterna-
tor modulated by placing carbon microphones in series with the
antenna feed line. Justin's homebuilt station is slightly more
modern, based on a 1921 vacuum-tube master oscillator power
amplifier (MOPA) design, using a UV-202 tube. The transmitter
employs Heising AM modulation, developed by Raymond Heising
during World War I.

Send listener reports directly to Brian Justin, WA1ZMS.
(MARE Tipsheet 21 Dec via DXLD)``

Others were hearing traces of it further east or with remote
receivers; likely rather low-powered. Chris Smolinski in Maryland was
not too far away, and refined the frequency to 485.9. So if you are
reading this before 1659 UT Dec 26, still have a change to hear it
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1961 monitoring: confirmed by Ivo
Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``Reception of World of Radio via HLR on Dec 23
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/12/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_23.html
1131-1200 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, weak/fair``

Also confirmed here Sunday December 23 at 2149 the 2130 on WRMI 7780,
very poor. Also confirmed UT Monday December 24 after 0230 on WRMI
5950, good S9+10 but 9395 JBA. Area 51 webcast not funxioning at 0400
UT Monday Dec 24 (tho WBCQ 7490 webcast OK), but WOR confirmed on WBCQ
5130.399, S9+10 at 0413. Confirmed at 0457 Dec 24 the 0430 on WRMI
9955, VG S9+10 and no jamming.

Oklahoma, Poland non, SÃo TomÃ, Sa`udi Arabia, South Africa, South

WOR 1962 ready just in time for first airings UT Tuesday December 25:
confirmed at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG. Not confirmed at 0200 Tue Dec 25
on WRMI 9955 because it`s a JBA carrier [yet Cuba is still inbooming
on 9640, 9535]; but not on webcast either, replaced by Spanish DX
program `Antena DX` as also shown now on the skedgrid --- but WOR has
been moved ahead to a new time I did not know about in time to mention
on 1962: Monday 2330 on 9955 & 5950. This means I will have to finish
produxion an hour earlier if I am to get the newshow on that
broadcast. Richard Lemke, Alberta confirms hearing the 2330 on 9955
last repeat of WOR 1961. Skedgrid also shows another surprise WOR
addition: Sat 1230 on 9955; that`s during the hour occupied on
weekdays by Argentina in Portuguese. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WRMI webcast labeled ``no name`` at
http://wrmi.listen.creek.fm/stream
carries 9955 programming whenever that transmitter is on the air, but
you never know what will be, elsewhen. I had it running to check WOR
before 0500 UT Monday Dec 24, and after that last week, it was Supreme
Master TV, also has been whatever is on WRN such as Israel. But this
week, at 0513 it`s `Viva Miami` Jeff & ThaÃs in Spanish about their
visit to Jordan for an HFCC conference, which was quite a while ago.
Not restricted on the HFCC website:
http://www.hfcc.org/hfcc-conferences-list.phtml
but has not been updated since B16.

0515 starts another VM Spanish episode about Lisboa, tnx to a new
direct 7-hour flight from Miami; but a minute later at 0516 that is
cut off to yet another episode, about visiting Praga, also quite a
while ago. 0528 *another* VM episode, this one a mailbag in English;
and at 0542 `Wavescan` #512 for the week of 12/16 starts playing.

Marathons of these two WRMI produxions, temporarily? keep showing up
not only on webcasts: 5950, Dec 25 at 0629, instead of RFI in English,
now with the VM Spanish episode about Jordania again.

Checking the webcast during 9955 pause, Dec 25 at 1630, a VM in
Spanish citing results of a mini-survey months ago by the DX Clube sem
Fronteiras of the most popular presenters and shows, the emphasis on
Portuguese and Spanish. Shortly the Jordan VM yet again; 1651 Praga;
then on to the same VM in English with mailbag, recorded just after
Thanksgiving (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4980, Dec 25 at 0012, open carrier from new WRMI frequency;
if I were picking one, it would not be 5 kHz away from constant RTTY
racket on 4985 (but better than head-on RTTY 7455 which WRMI inherited
from WYFR). Requires narrow bandwidth and/or LSB tuning. 0105 recheck,
now modulating a Jesus sermon in English; 0125 Ernesto y Francisco in
Spanish; 0130 romantic music in Spanish; 0159 JBA carrier so WRMI must
be off uncovering Urumqi. I later notice that the programs I heard
match those scheduled on 9955 for UT Tuesday: 0100 Bible Comm, 0115
F&E Spanish, 0130 Trova Libre.

Presumably the new frequency is still testing with available
programing. It had been reported first by Art Delibert, Maryland after
21 UT Dec 24 with `Global Master TV` which has already running from
that hour on 9455, and then heard by several others while I was busy
with WOR 1962 produxion, but I included news about this before
finishing. As of 17 UT Dec 25, 4980 is still *not* on the WRMI
transmission grid. Ivo Ivanov said WRMI had just registered it Dec 24
on a 21-09 UT span at 160 degrees. So it remains to be heard how much
of the span will be used and with what programming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 1962, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Dec 25 at 0629, this WRMI is S9+10 with hymn, Bob
Biermann ID and another hymn `Kyrie Eleison`, so is this YWS, Oldies,
or something special for Xmas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Dec 25 at 0449, WWCR-4 is on with S9+30 of dead air
except for some hum. The *only* time 5890 remains is UT Tue-Sat 03-05,
`Worship with Kelly Lawson` at 04-05; tough luck, Kelly (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 25 from 0604:
531, 549, 558, 612, 621, 648, 666, 693*, 711, 774, 837, 846, 882, 909,

Glenn Hauser logs December 22-23, 2018  View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 23 2018

Hauser
** CUBA. 9535, Dec 23 at 1333, RHC with some hum, at first seemingly
slightly off-frequency, but the hum peaks make it hard to pinpoint.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6150, Sunday Dec 23 at 1340, RHC with Campesina music show,
S9+10/20, the only 49mb frequency on now. On Dec 18, Wolfgang Bueschel
found 6000 instead. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13925, 13850, 13775, 13625, 13550, 13475, Dec 23 at 1454, FM
spurs out of 13700-AM RHC, approx. 75 kHz intervals, wider than usual.
Most readable in FM is 13625; 13850 QRMs 13845 WWCR; 13775 QRMs RHC
13780. All with the F# tone, which is all that can be detected as far
down as the trace on 13475. By 1517, 13780 is off but 13700 et al.
remain. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15311, 15283, 14997, 14969, approx., Dec 23 at 1459, the usual weak
distorted spurpairs out of RHC 15140, which itself is somewhat
distorted and overmodulated. See previous report for exact
measurements. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Dec 23 at 1517, CRI English relay is missing! Nor
found in quick scan anywhere else on 9, 11, 13 or 15 MHz bands
supposed to run at 14-16. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Dec 22 at 2304, JBA talk, at first presumed
to be local KCRC on 5 x 1390, but then checked and not //, so a
pirate. Nothing matching at HFUnderground, but earlier until 2229*
Captain Morgan SW was being heard on 6950.7 (and I think what I had
was on 6950.0):
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,49246.0.html
And before him until 2127* on 6950.5 was Toynbee Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,49243.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Sunday Dec 23 at 1416 UT, `Fox Football Fantasy` on
Fox Sports Radio, which I have been noticing a lot lately on KGYN
Guymon. Sibling station to 1480 KQAM Wichita and many others, website
has same design:
http://stecklinecommunications.com/kgyn/
confirming that KGYN is on FSR for 18 hours Sundays 06-24 UT! But not
fulltime. 1416 national adstring ends with one local insert for Fence
Master in Cherokee (OK town well east of Guymon) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** POLAND [non]. 5950, Dec 22 at 2307, S9+20 but poor and noisy, news
in English all about Poland, commercial relations with Africa. Hard to
believe this is anything but Polish Radio, despite WRMI skedgrid
showing this hour as Radio France International!
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
Indeed, WRN to North America schedule
http://babcock.media/world-radio-network/schedules/Schedule-English-North-America.pdf
does show Polish Radio daily at 2300-2400 --- so WRMI has stayed with
WRN another hour after DW at 2200-2300. Nice to have PR back on SW,
and I bet they don`t even know about it in Warszawa (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.111, Dec 23 at 1328, this WBCQ is on
again with Brother Scare, S9-S7. Perhaps TimTron has been repairing it
while in Monticello? If they can keep it going, presumably backup
5130.4 will not need to be BSing long hours instead.

9395, Dec 23 at 1331, WRMI is S9-S7 of dead air; by 1339 resumed with
Brother HyStairical (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WRMI and WBCQ: See SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 1480, Dec 23 at 1350 UT, hard rap in Spanish, artificially
sped-up vocalizations, obviously KBXD Dallas 50 kW daypower overcoming
KQAM Wichita; 1355 UT ``Banda Trece 14-80 AM``. So that`s the latest
incarnation for KBXD, the name formerly used by 1700 KKLF Richardson
(which is very different now with TexMexmx). As of August in the NRC
AM Log, KBXD was brokered religion in the Voz EvangÃlica group. radio
-locator.com still has it as Spanish religion.

Meanwhile I am hearing Jim Bohannon`s voice underneath on KQAM, a time
I would not expect him, but there he is on the schedule at 6-8 am CT
Sundays:
http://stecklinecommunications.com/kqam/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12054.8-USB, Dec 23 at 1452, very poor Spanish 2-way
off-tune due to JBA AM carrier on 12055.0, which would be IBB
Lampertheim, GERMANY in Uzbek this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1717 UT December 23
