Monday, February 12 2018

Logs
** ALGERIA [non]. 6105, Feb 12 at 0654, RTA via FRANCE with Arabic song, not Qur`an. As of Feb 2-3, Ivo Ivanov had concluded:
``FRANCE, Telediffusion d'Algerie with Holy Qur`an Service via TDF Issoudun Feb 2-3, no more French & National ChaÃne 1``
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/10/telediffusion-dalgerie.html
Updated winter B-17 of TDA Telediffusion d'Algerie via TDF Issoudun
can be found here`` --- but this may not have been a permanent change; needs further monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Feb 12 at 0653, PMS is back in business; also 11775 at 1523 Feb 12 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. WRMI(RAE) webcast, via which I have just confirmed WORLD OF RADIO, at 0500 Feb 12 switches to Radio Biafra --- sounds like same old program from months ago, probably zombie file not updated for a sesquimonth or more, and may well be run every night. At one point near end at 0530, YL claims the frequency [via France] was ``724`` instead of 7240. She has a lot of trouble with these numbers. WRMI is not on 11530 nor 9955 at this hour, no R. Biafra on SW. 0530 goes to World Music fill (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Re: ``223 kHz MCW, Feb 11 at 0709 UT tuned to 224, I get a dash and beacon ID starting with Y-, but too weak to be sure of next two letters. Dxinginfocentre.com shows the only one around here is YKA in Kamloops BC. If it`s 3 letters starting with Y and a dash, chances are it`s Canadian``

``Hi Glenn: You may have heard YKA Kamloops but I think YYW Armstrong, Ontario, is more likely. It is hugely dominant on 223 kHz (+400 Hz for the CW ID) here in Michigan. See: https://www.classaxe.com/dx/ndb/rna/signal_list
73, Andy Robins, Kalamazoo, Michigan USA``

YYW 223 Armstrong ON is also on the dxinfocentre.com list. Don`t know how I overlooked it. There are two Armstrongs in ON, one on the QC border south of James Bay, and the other somewhere north of Thunder Bay. Coordinates for YYW point to the latter. Dxinfocentre includes coordinates for stations, classaxe does not, but the latter does include powers, 100 watts for this one, 500 W for much further YKA. Classaxe also shows state/provinces/countries where each has been logged, and OK could be added to YYW if it were a bit more definite.

About this Armstrong:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armstrong,_Thunder_Bay_District,_Ontario
and even its airport, but WTFK?:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armstrong_Airport
(Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. 415 kHz, Feb 12 at 0724 UT, CBC beacon ID on MCW; no, not Canada, but Cayman Brac (West End), 1000 watts and not reported before from OK per
https://www.classaxe.com/dx/ndb/rna/signal_list
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Feb 12 at 0650, RHC is suptorted, but summarizing upcoming content including `DXers Unlimited` with Arnie Coro --- as if this is a restart of the one-hour broadcast, off-time? Arnie had been away recovering from surgery, but I can`t listen any further tonight. Did anyone hear DXUL resumed on any Sunday/UT Monday broadcast, and was it new or a repeat? Or was this a canned announcement failing to remove out-of-date info? 0652 into `Weekly Review`, best modulation on 6060 while 6100 & 6165 are also undermodulated. Somethings are always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15507, 15438, 15302, 15234, 15166, 15098, 15030, 14962, 14894, 14826, Feb 12 at 1521, RHC-FM spurs out of 15370-AM detectable circa these peaks at approx. 68 kHz intervals, the closer ones audible in FM detexion, the further ones at least with the F# tones. Not much above 15507 or below 14826. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 6190, Feb 12 at 1427, song could be in English; 1429 NHK `Sakura`` theme and 1430 Chinese. It`s NHK as scheduled going from Korean to Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [non]. 800, Feb 12 at 1333 UT, nulling KQCV OKC, no sign of XEROK, but another weak station in English. Ten minutes after sunrise here, long before sunrise in JuÃrez. Altho other lowband XEs are not heard either, XEROK should be detectable if anywhere near rated 50 kW. Need to check earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Feb 11 at 1931, R. Herwa International via WRMI is on again this Sunday, having taken Sat-Sun Feb 3-4 off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Feb 12 at 1345 UT, quick headlines on Radio Oklahoma Network, from newsroom of News9 (KWTV 39 OKC), back to Triple Play Sports, KOKB Blackwell OK. Quite an affiliate list here of RON:
http://radiooklahoma.net/affiliates.php
showing sub-networks each station takes; and bleeds into all neighboring states except Colorado, via border stations, or at least into extra-statal DMAs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 417 kHz, Feb 12 at 0722 UT, beacon IC on MCW --- but none listed, rather IY at Charles City IA. There is only one dit/dah difference between C and Y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1916 monitoring: missed checking UT Mon Feb 12 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330, but probably still off. Confirmed UT Mon Feb 12 from 0400 on Area 51 webcast, and audible at 0412 on WBCQ 5129.84. Confirmed UT Mon Feb 12 at 0430 on WRMI(RAE) webcast, but 9455 < 9955 are JBA carriers. Next:
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1917?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5129.85, Feb 12 at 1419, JBA carrier, must be WBCQ now all-day with BS. Expanded schedule means it is now barely possible to collide with the only other OOB station on 5130, which Aoki/NDXC currently shows as:

``5130 Afghan Christian R. (R. Sadaye Zin[dagi]) 1500-1800 1234567 Pashto/Dari 100 ND Bishkek KGZ 4252N 07459E TWR b17 R. Maranatha``
That`s nighttime in Kyrgyzstan, but full daytime in Maine and most of America. Maybe Bishkek could be heard on west coast if not WBCQ. You won`t find this in WRTH under Kyrgyzstan; but consult the cross-ref on page 520 which leads, where else, to CANADA! on page 460, whence this service is based (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, // 9955, Mon Feb 12 at 1445, WRMI opening `Viva Miami` (tho I am not sure he calls it that any more; no standard ``Miami Vice`` opening theme), Jeff & ThaÃs in Spanish, another repeat of their visit to Selangor State on the west coast of Malaysia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Feb 12 at 1334 UT, ``KSOK, Cowley county`s station for the hits, 103-3, The Mix`` from Ark City KS. Not really: 103.3 is K277CK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540, Feb 12 at 1340 UT, no sign of a het from KGBC Galveston TX, which sometimes jumps to 1540.1+; just KXEL English mixing with ESPN-D Spanish from KZMP The Metroplex. And it`s too early for 1520 KYND to be heard stunting under KOKC, as owner said he wasn`t turning it on until 8 am = 1400 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search on the rotatable DX-398, Feb 12 at 1319-1327: 558-?, 594-WSW, 702-WSW, 774-NW, 828-NW, 846-NW, 882-?, 936-WSW, 1098-W, 1566-NW.

Our sunrise today 1323 UT. Immediately after above at 1327-1330, I switch to the R75 & longwire, but the only one still audible is 1566, presumably Korea South (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6135, Feb 12 at 1424, jamming at first seems free of carrier, then a rather strong but rough one amid the noise. Replying to my previous Feb 10 log, Ron Howard says,

``Hi Glenn, Back on Jan 27, at 1420, had a brief period of time that the N. Korean jamming was not active on 6135. Heard a definite carrier, but too weak to dig out any audio. Jamming started up again at 1422. So the carrier for sure was separate and distinct from the N. Korea jamming. Have not found another instance of the N. Korea jamming being silent before 1500. Ron California``

And Mauno Ritola, Finland, replied to that, ``I think it is Madagascar running open carrier for some reason. 73, Mauno``

But from here it seems the carrier is too strong for a long-path signal from Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ALASKA [non]. MADAGASCAR. 9810, Feb 10 at 1956, ``KNLS`` theme music, poor with flutter, i.e. MWV Russian hour concluding, 100 kW at 355 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 223 kHz MCW, Feb 11 at 0709 UT tuned to 224, I get a dash and beacon ID starting with Y-, but too weak to be sure of next two letters. Dxinginfocentre.com shows the only one around here is YKA in Kamloops BC. If it`s 3 letters starting with Y and a dash, chances are it`s Canadian.

245 kHz, Feb 11 at 0712, MCW dash and YZE, which is at Gore Bay, Ontario. Where`s that? On the north shore of Manitoulin Island, between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. I`m pulling it under a stronger signal from FS, also on 245 but a different pitch; see U S A (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15579, 15510, 15443; 15298, 15229, 15159, 15094, 15023, 14952, 14881, 14810, 14740, 14670! Feb 11 from 1503, RHC-FM spurs out of AM 15370 transmitter, at these very approx. centers, each spreading up to 10 kHz wide. Intermittently, clear FM program audio cuts on the closer ones, otherwise mostly noise --- wiggle that patchcord! Fortunately, the tenth-order 14670 one is very weak and CHU can still be copied. That leads to an average separation of 70 kHz, a bit more than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7181.55, Feb 11 at 0515, S7 talk and drumming, as VOBME is still propagating on its signature split frequency; no QRDRM jamming audible, and nothing heard from the other one on 7140.

As in WRTH 2018 page 514, the ``7180asm`` transmitter also carries clandestine for Ethiopia, Ginbot 7 Dimts Radio, at 0300-0330 Tue/Thu/Fri, and 0330-0400 Sunday; 1500-1530 Thu/Fri/Sun and 1530-1600 Tue, all // MW 837/840 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Feb 10 at 1942 check, R. Herwa International 1930-2000 via WRMI is VG on the air this Saturday, unlike last weekend. Also JBA carrier on 9580, presumably other relay via FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9675, Feb 10 at 1952, TÃrkish recitation with musical background, good modulation, S9 fading to S6, 2000 ``Burasi ---`` ID. It`s BSKSA at 18-21, 500 kW, 340 degrees from Riyadh also USward, overkill for a nearby target (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND. 6120, Feb 10 at 0509, M&W in English scripted dialog, fair, from TWR scheduled 0501-0700, 50 kW, 233 degrees from Manzini. There is nothing but South Africa in that direxion, included in CIRAF 57 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. I am seldom monitoring during the 05 UT hour, but it proves to be a rich one for BBCWS offbeam reception. A bandscan starting at 0504 Feb 11 finds news on all these: 5875 S9+10, 5925 S9+25, 6005 S9+15 with RHC 6000 splatter, 6190 S8; none found on 7, 9 or 11 MHz bands until 0521 even 12095, averaging S5 and the SSOB on an otherwise almost dead band. Despite the over-generous S-meter readings, none of these are armchair as would be the case if BBCWS were still deliberately broadcasting to North America. Sources:
5875, 125 kW, 65 degrees from ASCENSION
5925, 125 kW, 114 degrees from ASCENSION
6005, 250 kW, 27 degrees from ASCENSION
6190, 100 kW, 15 degrees from SOUTH AFRICA
12095, 250 kW, 19 degrees from SOUTH AFRICA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 245 kHz, Feb 11 at 0712, beacon FS, which is Sioux Falls - Rock SD, per dxinfocenter.com; underneath it at a different pitch I pull out YZE in Ontario; see CANADA. Is Rock the name of an airport? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1916 monitoring: Not confirmed, Sat Feb 10 at 2235 & 2257 chex, on WBCQ 9330: no signal. Usually it would be audible at this hour if on the air. This transmitter reported to be down with problems, so there may be no 0030 otherday broadcasts either TFN.

Confirmed, Sat Feb 10 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, fair S9-S6. Also confirmed UT Sun Feb 11 at 0200 on WRMI 7780. Also confirmed on WA0RCR, MO, 1860-AM, S9+10, UT Sun Feb 11 ending at 0449, so started circa 0420.

Next:
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1917?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130, Feb 10 at 2257, WBCQ audible with BS, presumably having been on air all day. By 0005 UT Sunday Feb 11 check, Timtron is heard, so BS still cedes to Area 51 programming rather than the ``24 hours`` he claims. Recheck at 0458, 5129.85 with a song not BS and unreadable announcement with a crowd, S9+5/15, perhaps `Lost Discs Radio Show` as on 5130 sked, no ID, 0500 cut back to BS in progress. Now he`s praying someone will give him 10 megadollars, not just one, so he can ``finish his work``. Hey, me too! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Sat Feb 10 at 1948-1950, VOA news, 1950 ID and 1951 back to Oldies on WRMI. From 2000 it should switch to diverse programming block // 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Sat Feb 10 at 2258, WRMI ending VOA News relay with Ann Ball, so must be in Oldies service, 2259 ID and a minute of ``It Had to Be You`` before cutting to WORLD OF RADIO at 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Feb 10 at 1943, YL preaching in English, undermodulated but strong, KVOH reconfirmed with new Saturday-only English broadcast, unlike a week ago when it was JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers: not a complete bandscan but checked a few spots and heard carriers or hets, Feb 11 at 0521+ on 621, 0530+ on 1044(2), 1125(2), 1215.

BTW, Absolute Radio, surely source of the 1215 signals, has applied to ``reduce AM coverage by 5%``. Try to figure out what that mean from this 22-page pdf via Hansjoerg Biener:
https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/111003/Absolute-Radio-proposals-to-reduce-AM-coverage.pdf
WRTH says they have 14 stations on 1215 totaling 560 kW on this ex-BBC frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
