Dave,

An actual low=powered FM station from Maine? Interesting reception for sure.

WXNZ, Skowhegan

Glenn Hauser logs April 17-18, 2018  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 18 2018

Logs
** CUBA. 6140, April 17 at 0627, RHC in English, very weak, S2, new frequency? Yes and no: it must be a leapfrog mixing product of 6060 over 6100 another 40 kHz higher; I do not recall hearing one here before. Without embargo, it has more modulation than 6165 which is S9; because as usual 6060 is well-modulated; and it runs S9+10/20, while 6100 is less modulated at S9+10/20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1926, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, April 17 at 1405 check, no spur constellation across the 13.3-14.1 MHz range, a day off, but surely will be back soon. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1926, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. RHC on nine frequencies in the 25mb (three of them spurious):
11670, April 17 at 2333, is S9+20 of dead air
11700, April 17 at 2333, weak S7-S9 music
11760, April 17 at 2333, VG S9+20 music
11840, April 17 at 2334, S9+10 but sup-torted, with weak 11830 & 11850 parasites
11880, April 17 at 2335, S9-S9+10 but undermodulated starting `DXers Unlimited`, as Arnie`s voice is very rough today; about near hit by asteroid on Sunday; and Radio Swan. Every spring he goes on and on about RHC`s anniversary May 1 (and earlier Onda Corta Experimental Cubana); living in the past, as The Revolution really has no future. Better audible on // 5040 but more noisy down there.
11950, April 17 at 2336, separate Spanish `Mesa Redonda`, S9+10/20
12000, no signal despite being on the new schedules.
With all those fundamentals there ought to be some leapfrogs:
12020, April 17 at 2355 is the only one I find, JBA with same audio as 11950, but a mixture with 11880 English transmitter, 70 kHz intervals. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Checking a few others, at 2353, 15730 in Portuguese and 15230 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6905-AM, April 18 at 0012, unID pirate music at S9 with ACI from 6905-LSB peskies. At 0030, I find the music on 6910-AM instead, and the peskies are pushed up to 6920 and 6925. 6910 is off at 0036 but some running-water and maybe digital transmission. 6905 is back on at 0037 with snippets of songs, 0043 bird and animal calls, or are they produced by a human? Lots more SFX mixed with music past 0056 at S9+10. Some very brief talk announcements I can`t copy, off at 0114*. Many logs here say the 6905/6910 pirate was Seven Trees Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,41863.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5896.5-USB, UT Wednesday April 18 at 0008, MARS net headed by NCS387 with much weaker contacts AFA6AG and AFA6TG. I wonder if FCC ordered WWCR off 5890 because of this, besides their banning Brother HyStairical with no replacement; so could it resume that frequency if it wanted to? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 17 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.608v-CUSB, fair-good, altho 1926 was available 3.5 hours earlier this week.

WORLD OF RADIO 1926 contents: Alaska and non, Argentina non, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Chad non, Cuba, Ethiopia, Iran non, Kiritimati, Korea North non, Kuwait, New Zealand, Nigeria non, Oman, Panamà and non, PerÃ, Philippines, South Africa, Sweden, USA, Vietnam

WORLD OF RADIO 1926 monitoring: ready in time for first SW broadcasts Tuesday April 17 at 2030 on WRMI 7780 & 9455, poor-fair vs noise levels, and about the same on both at 2130 repeats. I can hardly wait for 7780 to revert to 11580 which will propagate much better on summer days. 13 MHz band across North America would be even better. Next:
Wed 1030 WRMI 9455 to WNW [unconfirmed]
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2100 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Thu 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sat 0629 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW [suspended until April 28]
Sat 1431 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW [suspended until April 28]
Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sat 2130 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sat 2300 WRMI 7780 to NE [not last week; canceled?]

** U S A. 9329.608v-CUSB, April 17 at 2322, WBCQ again with good signal today. May be a different transmitter than before; someone reported this as AM instead of CUSB. I find there is still more modulation on USB than LSB, but the carrier is less reduced now.

The programming is now rock music, NOT Overcomer; what happened? Not // 7490v with Alan Sane show; similar music on 5129.817v-AM, maybe same and not exactly synchronized. At 2330, 9330 splits away for one more play of last week`s WOR 1925. After it at 2359, bit of music fill, WBCQ ID and funding promo, and at 0000 April 18, resumes same rock music as on 5129.817, still no BS on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, April 17 at 1047 I awaken briefly so check for WRMI Oldies on new frequency --- there it is, poorly audible, but inaudible on 9395. So now I know it runs at least from 0300 to 1100, and probably from 0200, the 9-hour gap between previously scheduled programming upon it. However, the April 17 edition of NDXC/Aoki shows Oldies on 5950 only at 0230-0500 daily.

5950, April 18 at 0003, RMI during Jesus stuff from AWR in Spanish, again with heavy SAH. It averages about 8 Hz, but varies a lot due to one or both unstable transmitters and/or propagation. AWR mixes in some music with talk, but I don`t hear any separate modulation from the other carrier. What in the world is it? Iran in Tajik doesn`t start until 0050; maybe that has been expanded. Or my other theory, a second WRMI transmitter, of which they have several otherwise idle (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1926, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, April 18 at 0018, no signal from WRNO unless the JBA carrier be its exciter? India is not expected until 0130. WRNO is registered here for any time between 2200 and 1600, not just 0100-1300 as recently expanded. James Branum in OK was hearing it even a few minutes before 2200 on April 15 (unless he meant CDT instead of UT)(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1926, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, April 16 at 2039, JBA music, but by 2045 I do believe talk is in Italian, implying that the RAE relay in that language is again funxional via WRMI.

9455 // 9395, UT Tue April 17 at 0100, RAE opening English, extremely informal announcer mentions 9395 only, and I think refers to another English time as ``3 pm UTC``, on webcast? Program previews do not include DX show, which one would expect if this were the ``Friday`` program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 9685, April 16 at 1246, English talk about immune system, S5-S8; bet it`s RBA: yes, English segment 1245-1300 only, otherwise Burmese stuff per HFCC; a poor substitute, or rather no substitute, for RA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Monday April 16 at 1234, RHC Spanish // 6060 and 6000, but CCI only on 6100 from CRI Russian. Need to keep checking 6100 between 11 and 13 whether there is any alternative `Mesa Redonda` programming non // as alleged in some schedule version (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700-AM, April 16 at 1343, RHC today accomplishes not 12 but 14 detectable FMish spurblobs, as always the closest ones decoding clearly in FM mode, trailing off to the edges where nothing but a trace of the F# tone can be heard, at approx. 67-kHz intervals: 13767, 13834, 13900 good; 13967, 14034, 14100; 13634, 13569, 13502 good; 13436, 13370, 13302 vs aero comms selcall, 13235, 13169. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Surprised that no one else is reporting these, as can`t be missed in ordinary bandscanning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5959.954, April 16 at 1228, Urumqi poor in Chinese, soon ID mentioning Xinjiang; one-pip timesignal? about 1230:13. Characteristic off-frequency, also sometimes making it around our sunset, grayline (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, April 16 at 0540, JBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati. I`ve also heard carrier here around 1200 UT local sunrise, and Pacificans confirm that this station leaves carrier on all night now after programming which had been ending around 0900 or 1000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 5960, April 16 at carrier on a few seconds before *0500, via ASCENSION, unlike last night`s French sign-on announcement, after some horns and percussion opening in African language, Kanuri or Hausa? Except for trilingual greeting: ``salaam aleikum, bonjour, good morning to you all``. Only ID I could catch was ``Radio International`` as others have reported, without the name Ndarason being heard, nor Dandal Kura; 0503 into a song (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 11875, April 15 at 1824, something poor in French. It`s BBCWS, 1800-1830, 250 kW, 170 degrees from Woofferton, not much else from Europe on band at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9950, April 16 at 1400, opening Vietnamese from Washington. This hour only is IBB TINIAN; 9950 time-shared with Palau, Taiwan and Indian sites (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: As noted in last report, no show Sat April 14 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, instead VORW. Ivo Ivanov points out that VORW also aired on 7780 during the previous hour, 2200-2300, so maybe the repeat was a mistake? WOR not confirmed Sunday April 15 after 2330 on 9330: still no signal from WBCQ.

Confirmed UT Monday April 16 at 0130 on NEW tri-frequency broadcast via WRMI: poor on 5950, fair on 7780, very good on 5850, as to be expected here by respective azimuths; 7780 was VG in NB, 5850 VG in AB.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 16 from 0302 on Area 51 webcast, and poorly audible on WBCQ 5129.8 until 0331. Not confirmed UT Monday April 16 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, since it`s a JBA carrier, but confirmed on webcast, plus immediate repeat at 0400 still replacing ZomBiafra on webcast only.

Confirmed Monday April 16 at 2330, good signal is back! from WBCQ 9329.7v. Also confirmed UT Tuesday April 17 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG S9+30. I hope to have 1926 ready in time, but if not, next 1925s:
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, April 16 at 0530, poor signal with gospel huxter in English, presumably WRMI Oldies channel as before but during an opt-out (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490v, UT Tue April 17 at 0100, WBCQ with an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from when Timtron was hosting it March 2, quite differently than AW does it. Other days at 0100 it`s usually Blalock the Blaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830 // much stronger 9475, April 16 at 2037, SFAW on BOTH day and night frequencies of WTWW-1, a new combination. The higher one has JBA parasite carriers on 9462.1 & 9387.9, so it`s the ``#2`` transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15641-USB, April 16 at 1351, weak colloquial Spanish 2-way, intruders in extended 19m SWBC band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
