Glenn Hauser logs September 5-6, 2019  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 06 2019

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Sept 5 at 1401, PMS on and strong enough to tell
her modulation is squealing, like WWCR-1, WEWN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** BAHAMAS. While looking up CAYMAN info at dxinfocentre.com I search
for Bahamabeacons, and find only three listed. All appear to be away
from Hurricane Dorian path so may still be operating, FYI:
526, ZLS, Stella Maris, [Long Island], 500 watts
376, ZIN, Matthew Town, Great Inagua, 400 watts
281, ZSJ, Cockburn Town, San Salvador, 2000 watts
(Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 413 kHz, Sept 6 at 0547 UT, ND beacon YHD and dash, which
is 250 watts from Dryden, Ontario. I was tuned to 412-USB.

346 kHz, Sept 6 at 0615 UT, ND beacon YXL and dash, 500 watts from
Sioux Lookout, Ontario; I was tuned to 347-USB. Dozing off, there have
been more below. Glad to hear that not all the Y-stations have been
decommissioned yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. 415 kHz, Sept 6 at 0546, my NDB search downward is
off to a good start with CBC, which is 600 watts from Cayman BraC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 10960, 11070, 11150, Sept 6 at 1355, JBA carriers, all three
on *jammed SOH frequencies per Aoki/NDXC. VP propagation today but
these can hardly be coincidental (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 10000, Sept 5 at 0550, WWVH YL announcement about MARS
exercises, but now it`s generic, no specifix; ``aloha`` concludes just
in time for next timecheck at 0550:45 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Sept 6 at 0538 during TA carrier search, q.v.,
also one here slightly stronger and steadier which I know is far more
likely to be TP, i.e. R. Kiribati already ~an hour after LSS in the
UT+14 = UT-10 zone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Unfortunately awake before 1200 UT Sept 6, I check lowband
for the usual SRS stations: 540, 550, 610, 650, 700, 710, 740. 550 and
700 are playing different NA versions at hourtop; 650 concluding
`Buenos Dias, Yarderos` just before 1200, i.e. XETNT Los Mochis,
Sinaloa, and then always weaker 610, XEGS Guasave joins // for news.

700, Sept 6 at 1205, ``La Poderosa de Parral, 90.3``, i.e. XEGD,
Chihuahua where 5/1 kW can be hyped as ``powerful``.

740, making horrible LAH on minus side of KRMG which soon takes over.
We know this one is XEQN Torreón, Coahuila.

Enid sunrise today: 1207 UT. Also around 1205 Sept 6, tried 870 for
XETAR, but dominated by Spanish gospel huxter from south, presumably
KFJZ Fort Worth, but in new NRC AM Log it is still shown as ETHnic:
Hindi, and other sources say BizTalk Radio (in English)! Could this
really be Mexican? No, new IRCA Log shows only two others in Oaxaca,
Guerrero, not religious and very unlikely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6170, September 5 at 0543, surprised to find RNZI good
on here at unsked time, so replacing 9700? NO, // very good 9700 is
still on too and stronger, so both transmitters are running in AM.
This may be another Thursday-maintenance test anomaly. BTW, 6170 is
much stronger than adjacent 6165 RHC. By 0558, 6170 is off; at 0602
both 5945 and 9700 are on, and 9700 does not go off until late at
0603*, unusual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1998, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Sept 5 at 0548, VON is on at S9+20 with African
music, drumming prélude to 0600 Hausa. One never know whether this
will be on or AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Sept 6 at 1659 UT check, KOKB Blackwell is still
OFF. You`d never know it from http://tripleplaysportsradio.com (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1998 contents: Antarctica,
Argentina, Ascension, Australia, Bahamas, Brasil, Chad non, Colombia,
Cuba and non, Hong Kong non, India, International Waters and non,
Iraq, Ireland non, Korea North, México, New Zealand, Oklahoma, Oman,

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.16v, Sept 5 at 1421, WBCQ is JBA probably with a NOAA
Weather Radio relay; now moved up the coast from Daytona?

9330.190v, Sept 6 at 1400, WBCQ JBA talk in measured tones of NOAA
robot rather than Brother HyStairical; 1401 fades up a bit, definitely
NOAA Weather Radio, but can`t catch any local mentions, let alone ID
or WBCQ ID. Dorian is currently over the OBX of NC (and we hope DXer
Rick Shaftan is evacuated or doing OK). Far enough from Grimesland not
to cause VOA problems? Check for missing Martí or Bambara
frequencies.

Allan twitted Sept 5: ``Allan Weiner @AllanWBCQ Sep 5
Still storming. Still beaming on 9330khz with weather info. Blessings
for folks in the Carolinas. Tune in the shortwaves when you can. Bring
a portable with you. It’s fun and important``

And on Sept 4: ``Prayers to all in the hurricane path. May our Father
keep pushing it to the east. Far from land. Help our brethren in the
Bahama land. 9330khz on with NOAA weather reports.``

And on Sept 3: ``9330khz on with FL NOAA radio beaming south. Keep
tuned in to all the shortwaves. Much good information and
entertainment. A very good alternative to main stream everything``

Really ``beaming south``?? CCW from 245 degrees WSW, which has been
the nominal central beam for all WBCQ frequencies?? (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1650 kHz, Sept 6 at 1212 UT, rustic Mexmx and ``1650-AM,
cerca de su rancho`` slogans; loops WSW which is just right to
minimize 1640-KZLS, and my line noise from N/S. Must be KSVE El Paso
TX, 8500/850 watts, new format after defunct ESPN-D (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search: I hear a 1 kHz het
on 1000 KTOK OKC, so it`s time to resume hunting. Some editors think
this is a waste, insignificant, but I know I am really getting all
these signals from multiple countries, even if any audio for a
``definite ID`` is unlikely here in deep North America. Usual method:
on R75, 9-kHz steps tuning USB 1 kHz below each channel to detect
tell-tale hets of 1000 Hz.

This is at 0255-0304 UT Sept 6: 531, 621, 684, 711, 774-, 837, 954,
999, 1098, 1107, 1503, 1566, 1575. 621 stands out strongest, probably
Canary Islands. 774 is on the minus side, maybe something local. Often
pilot 999 is most likely COPE, Madrid, Spain, by proximity and power
50 kW.

Another search at 0538-0544 Sept 6: 549, 567, 621, 711, 747, 774(2),
837, 954, 999, 1107 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also
KIRITIMATI

UNIDENTIFIED. 930, Sept 4 at 0607 UT, WKY OKC nulled reveals a C2CAM
station, most likely WTAD Quincy IL, or maybe KWOC Poplar Bluff MO;
mixed with a sportstalk in English I will not attempt to guess (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

cut on until 2100:03 when I have already reached ``---1997``, my first
eight words upcut, as WRMI automation continues to be out of
synchronization. S5-S8 anyway, much better than simulcast on WBCQ
7490.2, JBA in HNL, but confirmed L&C on webcast. Next:

Thu 0100 WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 9330, Sept 4 at 1355, JBA signal presumed WBCQ relaying NOAA
Weather Radio from Daytona, but too weak to be sure. At 2103 it`s just
as bad but measured down to 9329.94. Will they pick up further NOAA`s
up the GA, SC, NC coasts? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. During a break in my high local line noise level affecting
MW as well as SW, at midday Sept 3, I decide to try something
different: MW bandscan at 1 kHz below each 10-kHz channel in USB, to
``hear the hets``. Even tho this is far from an ideal quiet location
and far from ideal equipment (R75 with 100` E-W longwire, meaning it`s
a bit deaf to the N/S, such as not hearing 820 WBAP), I listen for
frequencies with more than one carrier beating --- some of them very
slow, to slow, to medium, to fast --- and skipping those with no
signal or definitely only one signal. It would take a *lot* more time
to count the beats and calculate each SAH.

This indicates that there are remnants of groundwave from some
second-tier stations around here I seldom or never hear in the clear.
Of course, I am not interested in amassing station totals so am making
no such claims, just an exercise in monitoring and propagation. I will
include the most likely sources based on proximity, top station first.
Remember that we do have some of the highest inland ground
conductivity around here, in the 30s.

I do this between 1840 and 1903 UT Sept 3, i.e. just after local mean
noon always at 1832 UT, when there will be the *least* possibility of
MW skywave, especially now still in summer. Some frequencies with one
fairly strong semi-local seem to be wobbling; hard to be certain if
transmitter fault or receiver overload. As usual when tuning MW or LW
on this receiver, both Preamp 2 and Preamp 1 are OFF. But further ATT
is not engaged. And of course there is no DFing with the LW.

Quite possibly no other DX editor will wish to dedicate the space to
publish this, but here it is in my original log report, which took at
least twice as long afterwards to compile as to carry out.
