Logs
** BOLIVIA. 5952.4, Oct 1 at 0023, no signal from Pio XII; must be off, as other Bol & SAm at least carriers are in on 5910.3, 6050.0, 6134.8, 6173.9. Do they close early on Saturday evenings instead of 0230? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Sept 30 at 0516, checking RHC English: this one is off, audiblizing the off-frequency ZY carrier; 6145 is good at S9+20; 6100 is S9+10 but undermodulated; 6000 is S9+10 and undermodulated but better than 6100.

15370, Sept 30 at 2035, S8 open carrier, must be RHC on between transmissions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Oct 1 at 0046, very poor S5 music, presumably VOG reactivated after a few weeks missing from this frequency, but much weaker than formerly, and now 9935 is off. Ivo reported earlier than 9420 was back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Oct 1 at 0022, Mighty KBC with classic rock at S9 fading to S6 via GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Oct 1 at 0028, pirate music at S9+5; 0030 cuts off mid-music for most of a minute, resumes; 0038 after another long pause, drama excerpt, from OT radio? 0042 stops and nothing further heard. Lots more logs, all unID:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37685.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-LSB, Oct 1 at 0028, banjo music on LSB, 0029 missed announcement, distorted music; 0033 ID by YL once as ``--- Radio``; 0036 distorted YL says ``reports to Underground Radio will be answered by Chris Smolinski``. 0048 recheck, it`s off.

There were a bunch of logs of French music during the previous hour on 6950-LSB, but ended at 0008:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37679.0.html
I don`t see any HFU logs of Underground or anything during my time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, Oct 1 at 0048, S9+25 torch song, presumably Wolverine Radio with its bigsig; 0052 `Rock Around the Clock`, 0054 Wolverine Radio ID. Many more logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37687.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sept 30 at 1805, REE is on at S9+10, but open carrier/dead air! 17715 is S9+10 with SBG modulation; 15520 also audible, and 15390 JBA carrier. Next check at 2036: 17855 is *still* OC/DA, at S8; wake up, Noblejans! 17715 OK at S7-S5; 15520 weaker; 15390 worst and distorted as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Friday September 29 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.149v-CUSB, good S9+10. Not confirmed Sat Sept 30 at 1431 on HLR 7265-CUSB: via UTwente once again I cannot make about WOR at 1455 check, but some weak music, no doubt CRI.

``Greetings from WBCQ, FYI: Schedule change for WBCQ 9330 broadcast on Saturdays. Effective immediately (9/30/2017), "World of Radio" will be aired one hour earlier - at 5:30 pm Eastern (2130 UT Saturday) instead of at 6:30 pm Eastern (2230 UT Saturday). Our apologies for the short notice period. Thanks, Robert Ellis (WBCQ shortwave program director / board operations)``

Thanks for the advance notice, not something I can depend on from some other stations. Yes, confirmed Sat Sept 30 at 2130 on 9330.171v-CUSB, fair, just after sign-on. (Not sure what replaces at 2230, but I notice after 2300 Blalock the Blaster is playing instead of an AWWW repeat). Online sked not updated yet.

WOR 1897 confirmed Sat Sept 30 at 2300 on WRMI, 11580 (which finally shows on their skedgrid), poor. Also confirmed UT Sunday October 1 at 0200 on 11580, good S9+10/20. Also confirmed UT Sun Oct 1 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, good S9+20, about R. Martà 1180, which is 9 minutes into program, so started circa 0319. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, September 29 at 2030, filling in the blanx, the Friday show gaining this semihour on WRMI is `Bajo el Sol de Miami` which I hadn`t really listened to before; apparently about the arts, but mostly music, some interviews. Sat Sept 30 at 2030, it`s `Blues Radio International`. Now solely by monitoring, I have almost completed a week`s schedule of 2030s on 9955:

Sat, Blues Radio International
Sun, Studio DX (Italian)
Mon, gospel huxter in English
Tue, unchecked yet
Wed, WORLD OF RADIO
Thu, Frecuencia al DÃa
Fri, Bajo el Sol de Miami

5985, September 29 at 0518, Brother Scare is VP here, new one-hour extension and new frequency for TOM from WRMI-2, 222 degrees to Central America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.94, UT Sat Sept 30 at 0000, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide` listening at first online, as AW talks about transmitter work, #1 on ``7415`` (oops), has been refurbished with two new 4CX35000 tubes, which he got second-hand at a big discount; #1 had a lot of glitches. Tonight also on 5130 and 3250, and just about everything is full power, all // with no delay, he says. I keep listening until the first call interrupts.

Not until 0141 do I tune in SW, as he is about to wrap up, and find that 5130 is not on, but 3249.98 is good at S9+10, and measure #1 as above (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.16v-CUSB, Sat Sept 30 at 1459, tune in to WBCQ ID JBA, 1500 music continues, fund-raiser promo, but cut off at 1501*. I had forgotten to check for the special broadcast from Universe Radio starting at 1000! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.37-AM, UT Sun Oct 1 at 0039, WBCQ, Marion of Attic is heard guesting on `Radio Timtron Worldwide`, along with Cristina. It seems they are visiting Monticello to do their own show live tomorrow, not only on 7490 but all the other frequencies. Presumably at 21-22 UT Sunday, or expanded?

Now 3250.03 is also on, // 5130. 3250 is S9+20 fading to S7, while 5130 is S9+10 fading to S8. 9330.19v-CUSB at 0045 is running something else. At 0102, Timtron announces that the ``90 meter service will be leaving`` as `Lumpy Gravy` is opening, but 3250 stays on // 5130 until 0103* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Sept 30 at 1807, WTWW-2 is still AWOL from afternoon frequency; and UT Sunday Oct 1 at 0105, night frequency also AWOL, so strike out for `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7520, Oct 1 at 0057, WWCR is S9+50 but only traces of scratch modulation yet nevertheless splashing out plus/minus 20 kHz; including sub/carrier/spurs such as 7125.2. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

Logs
** 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. 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)
