Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 12085 & 9580, Dec 18 at 1440, oh-oh, Radio Australia is MISSING, a sesquimonth before its permanent turnoff, so maybe just another anomaly. 12065 still has a very weak S6 signal by 1511, presumably still RA (and there is a trace of a carrier just above 12085, something else?). Propagation is certainly OK, with S9+10 7355 RNZI, et al. 4835 ABC Alice Springs is also still on, S9 at 1440.

Stephen Luce in TX says it was also thus on Dec 17 (when I was not checking). Ron Howard in CA and Wolfgang BÃschel in Germany say 17840 (same Oklahoma beam as 9580) was also missing earlier UT Dec 18 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Dec 18 at 1432, CHR Trenton VOLMET audio is at peaks only, extremely distorted and unreadable, quite unusual for them. Probably on autopilot with no one at station monitoring from the air how they sound. Recheck at 1926: still distorted but more or less readable if you put up with it. Is there another frequency to compare? Yes, but not at same time. EiBi shows skeds as: 2310-1100 on 6754, 1010-2400 on 15034. With such a limited listed overlap, are there really two transmitters? Well, we still have NY and Gander sharing 13270, 10051, 6604, 3485 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 18 at 0655, RHC open carrier/dead air, while other English frequencies with music are OK, 6165, 6100, 6000, 5040. At 0708, 6165 is still on but in Spanish, S9+20; 6060 still DA at S9+20, 6000 off.

9710 // 9535, Dec 18 at 0705, RHC Spanish frequencies are only S9 and S8, still on the air, and I bet they were in English before 0700.

5040, Dec 18 at 0709, RHC`s weekly Sunday Esperanto broadcast is on here, S9+30 in addition to only scheduled frequency 6100! Another mixup and who knows if they woke up and turned it off before 0730? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 10345, Sunday Dec 18 at 0710, S9+40 Cuban Spy numbers and digibursts, first noted via the R75 on 11735! as mixture/overload with local KCRC, 1390 kHz above 10345 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Dec 18 at 1829, MWV English is on, rather reliably now so far, ending an item about dandelions on `Creation Moment` capsule, anti-science nonsense as bad as Thump, which all true missionary stations must buy into (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7415, Dec 18 at 0554, at tune-in mentions ``25 and 31 meter bands`` as if in English, S9+20. Maybe really said 41mb? It`s Dandal Kura Radio, the USAID-backed service for NE Nigeria`s Boko Haram territory, in Kanuri, 05-07, 250 kW, 55 degrees via ASCENSION. 0600 in the language, 0601 adding hum on audio, opening with `Salam Aleikum` but this is not Arabic. Still good at 0615 (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140.012, Dec 18 at 1430, JBA carrier from RSO, back on frequency (almost) after several days on 15140.50. English news should be airing at this very moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Dec 18 at 1523, REE Spanish to North America, poor with long/short path echo, while much better, anechoic on // 15390 aimed oppositely! 9690 should not be used for us as early as 1500 on weekends, I keep pointing out. It will gradually improve as hours go on, however, under wintry conditions (low here was +2 F this morning).

9690, Dec 18 at 1845, now it`s up to S9, and 15390 is down to JBA carrier with silly ballgame. Contradictory skeds are on the big three sources: dismiss HFCC which includes lots of wooden entries; Aoki shows 15550 on the 230 degree beam to S America, which must be a plain mistake for 15500 which is not listed there. But neither one is audible now at 1845.

EiBi is probably closest to correct: Daily 19-23 on 9690 NAm, 11685 WAf, 15390 SAm, 15500 ME. Same for Sat/Sun extension 15-19 except 17755 instead of 11685 for WAf, the only target area which gets a different early frequency, sorely needed also for North America. But then, sometimes one or two transmitters are down. 11685 is not audible at 1905 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND. 9585, Dec 18 at 1413, tnx absence of Australia from 9580, S9 signal in French with strange accent, keeps referring to ``with me in paradise``, red flag as gospel huxter. Yes, it`s TWR Africa at 1455-1525, 100 kW, 64 degrees from Manzini, in French only on Day 7 = Saturday per Aoki, but this is Sunday! Other days in Malagasy. EiBi`s version must be more accurate: 1455-1525 M-F in Malagasy, 1440-1525 Sat & Sun in French. HFCC doesn`t break down the languages, but alleges it start at 1455 daily. Thus we have a 3-way contradixion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sun Dec 18 at 1702, JBA carrier from presumed R. Munansi via WWRB; at 1829 a tiny bit better. Despite sporadic E opening into the FM band earlier this morning per DX Map (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1856 monitoring: not confirmed Sat Dec 17 at 2330 on 9330, WBCQ, but there is a JBA carrier, so presumably on with WOR (likewise JBA is closest other SW station, 9265 WINB). Confirmed UT Sunday Dec 18 at 0426 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, 6 minutes into show so started at 0420. Confirmed Sunday Dec 18 after 1130 on HLR, 9485-CUSB, by Alan Gale in England. Next:
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 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, Dec 18 at 1516, WTWW-1 fails to broadcast on wrong frequency 5830 unlike 48 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Dec 18 at 1830, carrier from WMLK is back now that it`s Sunday, an ordinary secular weekday, but no sacred-name modulation audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6780, Dec 18 at 1436, JBA carrier. I believe this is an ISM frequency, half of 13560, subject to unlicensed low-power industrial, scientific and medical devices as well as pirates and Part 15 beacons (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1932 UT December 18

Slight correxion: I misreferred to 5085 as WTWW-1 instead of -2; fixed:

** U S A. 5085, Fri Dec 16 at 0656, WTWW-2 is on, Ted with a radio ad. You never know whether it will be or not, and the wtww.us program schedule page is no help, full of mistakes and omissions.

** CUBA [and non]. 5025, Dec 17 at 1816, S6 carrier vs noise at same level, as R. Rebelde manages to be detectable near noon at mid-winter. Also 5015, WRMIBS at S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9325, Dec 17 at 1812, S9 signal with suptorted just barely modulation, S9, 1826 a little better Qur`anish. Obviously R. Cairo Hausa service as scheduled, 18-21 UT, 250 kW, 241 degrees from Abis.

9540.24, Dec 17 at 1831, open carrier at S6. This is obviously R. Cairo in Italian at 18-19, 250 kW, 315 degrees from Abis USward, which I also had Dec 9, measured on 9540.158 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGET) See also UNIDENTIFIED 9330

** ERITREA [and non]. 7175, Dec 16 at 1523, JBA carrier, presumed VOBME-1 by long path. Also JBA carriers on 7120-Somaliland, 7205-Sudan, but not 7146+ for the other VOBME. There is one on 7195 where suspect VOBME-2 has shifted, but not confirmed elsewhere.

(In fact, at a very different hour, 15-17 UT, 7195 has been identified by Ivo Ivanov as RFA in Korean via Tinian, ex-7210. Isn`t it unprecedented for IBB to invade the ham band like that??) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 11670, Fri Dec 16 at 1512, again no signal in Arabic as heard Wed Dec 14 but not Thu Dec 15 either.

11670, Sat Dec 16 at 1515, unID S9+10 Arabic is back! mentions Stockholm so suspected IBRA, but many more mentions of Al-Shabab in continuous M&M conversation; 1529 HOA song and announcement, 1531 switch to non-Arabic language, with schedule mentioning kHz and meter-band, 1532 finally catch ID as ``Radio Adal``. That`s the one which had been on 17580, 100 kW via Issoudun, FRANCE at 15-16. Confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, on Wed/Sat only sked, thus explaining the hiatus, and switching to Tigrinya at 1531 (plus R. Al-Mukhtar on Tuesdays) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Dec 16 at 1401, Denge Kurdistane first day on reactivated `summer` frequency, with an echo, long/short path? S9 but much weaker than 11860 Yemen [non]. Ex-9400 where there is nothing. YL mentions Ankara, etc., mostly talk, but by 1455 music at S6. By 1512, 11600 is S9+10 in Kurdish talk. Ivo Ivanov thought the 14-16 bihour would be via BULGARIA, altho BRB misleadlingly registers all D.K. transmissions with HFCC as KCH = Kishinov, Moldova = Grigoriopol`, Pridnestrovye. However, on Dec 16 he notes for the 15-16 UT hour, both 9400 Bulgaria and 11600 Pridnestrovye; perhaps during incomplete transition.

11600 & 9400, Dec 16 at 1816 check, nothing audible on either, when 7455 is now supposed to be the only D.K. channel, 1600-2000 via France, then 2000-2130 via Pridnestrovye (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Dec 16 at 1810, MWV APR in English, is VG with marital advice: wives, don`t let yourselves go, after a few children, but remain attractive, lest your husband lose interest in you. Repeat English hour audible but poorly at 2034.

17640, Dec 17 at 1759, VG open carrier S9, 1800 trumpets and APR sign-on, with guest host Jonah, and Terry, previewing magazine contents including African Children`s Choir from Uganda; righteousness; wife`s appearance (more); Thelonius Monk; this day in history. It`s almost the OSOB, only weak 17790 WRMIBS besides it, making MWV the SSOB by far, still at 1823 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140.505, Dec 16 at 1528, RSO is still split off from 15140.0, S5 carrier, just barely modulated. Also Dec 17 at 1510 check on 15140.5, not precisely measured further, but slightly closer to 15141.000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 17 at 0041, no signal from R. Chaski --- either closing much earlier than 0105*v now, or more likely completely off the air. They had been having issues, per Claudio Galaz Toledo, Chile.

(5979 CHINA carrier not audible now either, poor propagation; to make matters worse, elevated noise level especially on 2 MHz band at S9+20, probably blamable on neighborhood Xmas displays/lighting for the duration) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Dec 17 at 1659, VP carrier, 1700 music? Presumably Radio Munansi opening via WWRB Tennessee. About equal to 15825 WWCR signal, both of which could really use some sporadic-E enhancement. Where is it as the winter peak season should be underway? A 16-MHz MUF isn`t much to ask, no need to reach VHF. By 1755, 15240 is slightly better, JBA at S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1856 monitoring: not confirmed UT Saturday Dec 17 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: No signal at all, nor from 9265 WINB, as 31m propagation almost gone, only very weak signals except for 9395 WRMI (7490 WBCQ with Fred Flintstone music is still S9, but 5130 is admittedly off even after 0100).

Sat Dec 17 at 1544 check, on 7265-CUSB via HLR via UTwente, nothing but South Asian music audible from CRI Kashgar. However, Nino Marabello in Treviso, Italy, sends me a clip of WOR opening at 1531, where it`s weak but atop CRI! Next:
Sat 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW
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 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850 // 7730, Friday Dec 16 at 0700, WRMI again duplicating `Viva Miami` about the Everglades, instead of `Media Network Plus` which is on the schedule this hour Fridays, for 7730 at least. BTW, Keith Perron says PCJ Radio International is dropping SW to North America as of yearend, i.e. WRMI.

7730, Dec 17 at 0034, WRMI is VG with hymns, unseems `Wavescan` as scheduled UT Sat 0030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Fri Dec 16 at 0656, WTWW-1 is on, Ted with a radio ad. You never know whether it will be or not, and the wtww.us program schedule page is no help, full of mistakes and omissions.

5830, Dec 16 at 1522, WTWW-1 is still on night frequency instead of 9475, screaming gospel huxter.

9930, Fri Dec 16 at 1922 & 2033, Xmasmx from WTWW-2, distorted as usual, no `Dave Ramsey Show` which had been airing 19-22 UT weekdays, and still shown as 1-4 pm CT on homepage. Unchecked UT Dec 17 whether that appeared circa 0030 like yesterday with 9930 still on at night. Dec 16 afternoon, 9475 and 12105 are nominal.

9930, Sat Dec 17 at 1859, Xmasmx from WTWW-2, 1901 plug Santa Net nightly at 7 pm CT thru Xmaseve on 3916-(LSB?), allegedly allowing patches from kids to Santa at North Pole. At 1902:30 `Theater Organ of the Ozarx`` starts late with, what else? Xmas carols; outro at 1931 mentions being on Saturday nights (does Heil know that both times were no-shows last week, Dec 10-11?) and refer to program sked, but where? This does not end until 1935:30, so ran 33 minutes, inconvenient for a tightly-scheduled station, not WTWW! Then to non-organ Xmasmx. This contradicts WTWW`s own attempt at a program schedule which already shows a conflict of two other programs on ``9330`` [sic] Sat 1:30 pm:
``AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLINE SATURDAY 1:30 PM ON 9330
QSO RADIO SHOW SATURDAY 1:30 PM ON 9330``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Friday December 16 at 1516 and 1816 chex, still no signal from KVOH, AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Fri Dec 16 at 1816, WMLK is on, good signal and even good modulation from DEJOM, still so at 2034 (when 9265 neighbor WINB is still not on yet); will WMLK be able to keep this up (after Sabbathday off), or will something else break down? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9330, Dec 17 at 1811, S7 open carrier; 1826 up to S9. What could it be? WBCQ transmitter on testing? Cuban Spy Numbers/RHC transmitter? --- seems too weak for that and normally active only in nightmiddle. Only other station which has been on 9330 in recent years is Damascus, Syria, long inactive. Could that be attempting a comeback?? Probably more pressing matters over there. Note that 9325 and 9540+ Cairo in the other part of the ex-UAR, are indeed propagating, see EGYPT. No, it`s not WTWW, q.v., which imagines it broadcasts on 9330 instead of 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
Sorry, another minor correxion. (After spending hours writing my reports and proofreading twice, I hope I am finished. But thrice may be needed).

Date on this was Sat Dec 17, not ``Sat Dec 16``, fixed:

** ERITREA [non]. [. . .] 11670, Sat Dec 17 at 1515, unID S9+10 Arabic is back! mentions Stockholm so suspected IBRA, but many more mentions of Al-Shabab in continuous M&M conversation; 1529 HOA song and announcement, 1531 switch to non-Arabic language, with schedule mentioning kHz and meter-band, 1532 finally catch ID as ``Radio Adal``. That`s the one which had been on 17580, 100 kW via Issoudun, FRANCE at 15-16. Confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, on Wed/Sat only sked, thus explaining the hiatus, and switching to Tigrinya at 1531 (plus R.

** ALBANIA. 7475-, Dec 16 at 0026, JBA carrier, presumably all that R. Tirana can muster during its Albanian to North America hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGOLA. 4949.73, Dec 16 at 0022, RNA poor at S9 but good modulation in Portuguese talk. Still would like to hear it at armchair level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA. 11710.865, Dec 16 at 0334, RAE ATTW S9 signal, but low modulation probably tango during alleged English hour. Hardly anything propagating on 25m besides this and Brasil at S9+20. Yet K-index 1, no storms and solar flux was 73 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 11820-, Dec 16 at 0012, CRI Cantonese at S9+20, and short/long path echo, unlike when heard 3 nights ago. Is 500 kW, 200 degrees from Xi`an.

6020, Dec 16 at 0012, CRI English via ALBANIA, no double-audio echo tonight, unlike 47 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COSTA RICA. 2859.82, Dec 16 at 0016, JBA music, tentative R. San Carlos 2 x 1430v. It`s less than the noise level of S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 7400, Dec 16 at 0340, VP S8 signal with some music. Supposedly Denge Kurdistane on new frequency starting today per Ivo Ivanov, ex-9400, at 0330-0600, via PRIDNESTROVYE (and full sked copied in my last report).

No matter that 7400 is one of the frequencies reserved at 23-12 UT, to all 85 CIRAF target zones for International Radio for Disaster Relief, as explained here:
http://hfcc.org/humanitarian/
But yet to be implemented; no disasters needing radio relief yet? Hardly. Plus/minus 5 kHz channels are also supposed to be kept clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5790, Dec 16 at 0341, VP S7 signal with talk, barely recognizable at occasional peaks to be [Station YHWH] as expected since first reported on this available channel 24 hours earlier. Still on past 0428, slightly better (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Dec 16 at 0014 & 0034, again no signal from R. Chaski, but a JBA carrier on 5979 from PBS Gannan, China. Last report of Chaski from Claudio Galaz, Chile was Dec 10 at 2210, and then at 2305, no carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2500, Dec 16 at 0016, WWV announcing that a LEAP SECOND will be inserted Dec 31 at 2359:60 UT. First I had heard of this: will make our NYE celebration much more exciting! Besides the 61-second minute from WWV, we`ll be pulled to BBCWS for full strike of Big Ben (or not; is it back in live broadcast service?). Another fun thing to do would be immediately after this, check the few other SW timesignal stations, whether they have also leaped or become out of step with WWV and real World Time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1856 monitoring: confirmed Thursday December 15 at 2130 on WRMI 13695, excellent. Not confirmed UT Friday December 16 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, but a JBA carrier on by 0031, so should be with WOR, propagating to anywhere? (9265 WINB is VP at S5; 7490 WBCQ with `Broad Spectrum Radio` about ND pipeline is only S9 and fading). Next:
Sat 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sat 0730 HLR 6190-CUSB to SW
Sat 1530 HLR 7265-CUSB to SW

Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Dec 16 at 0030, WTWW-2 is on day frequency at night instead of 5085, and --- in a commercial break during Dave Ramsey Show! Which had been running at 19-22 UT weekdays. 9930 is S9+10 but fading, about same as 9475 WTWW-1 with SFAW white supremacy show. Not rechecked until 0339, when 9930 is *still* on, now with distorted Xmasmx, 5085 off, but WTWW-1 has successfully QSYed to 5830.

Time for another gander at the WTWW schedule page, which does have some new info but not all correct:

Hey Ted, transmitter 2 is NOT the one on 9475, and it`s on 9930, NOT 9330 (which is WBCQ; let`s hope this error x3 is not extended to the transmitter tuner where it would blow away weak WBCQ). Dave Ramsey not mentioned at original or strange time tonight. Repeat of Organ/Ozarx Sat 8 pm not mentioned (if it still exists: dead air last week). As a matter of fact, fails to mention ALL the times when dead air is broadcast. BTW, I was once told that Mrs. Ted is in charge of the website provider for this, ``powered by tux-support.com``, but just try hitting the hotlink to it at pagebottom (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5131.44-USB approx., Dec 16 at 0033, 2-way in Spanish, very poor while checking for 5130+ WBCQ but which is not on. Can`t call them intruders, in fixed band where broadcasters intrude (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6949.96-AM, Dec 16 at 0024, JBA pirate music. Strangely, nothing at all yet posted on the HF Underground board for UT Dec 16 by 0455.

BTW, re my previous log on 6950.90-AM of ``Lee County Radio``?, Chris Smolinski replies: ``Looks like it was indeed Lee County Radio based on the QSL, but no confirmation as to which Lee County :)`` https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,31589.0.html
