9-11 June Loggings  View Printable Version 
Monday, June 12 2017

9685 AUSTRALIA Reach Beyond Australia 1117-1128 Somewhat
slow and deliberate EG pgm abt Baseball rules and âAlmost Perfectâ
segment of Armando Galarragaâs near perfect game. 1129 instru. mx, and
into next pgm in Chin Hakha. No ID between pgms. Fair signal. (Valko,
9 June)

9799.61 EGYPT R. Cairo 2205 AR mx, 4+1 higher pitch time ticks
at 2215, then W w/EG nx ending w/ID at 2217. 2219 ID w/intro for
âEgyptian Challengeâ pgm, then off the air. Back on w/OC a min. later,
and pgm already continuing. Good signal but audio over modulated.
(Valko, 9 June)

9514.97 BRAZIL R. Marumby 2224-2300 âVoz do Brasilâ // to other
ZYs including 9665.87 Voz Missionaria, 9674.92 Cancao Nova, 11856.02
Aparecida, and 15190.05 Inconfidencia. 2300 instru. mx, 2301 usual
âMarumbyâ singing jingle by women, then canned ID/promo w/ment of
Marumby, sev. more canned anmnts, and into next pgm at 2304. Fady
w/some 9505 WHRI slop QRM, but stronger than usual and readable.
(Valko, 9 June)

6940U PIRATE (NA) Seven Trees Radio Hard Rock, almost Metal
mx then short final ID by M at 2300 as âWelcome to Seven Trees Radio,
where we pull the plug every dayâ, and off. Came back on w/ID at 2304
and into current mx, then went off. Came back on again at 2314 with the
same ID and played the song âWho Do You Loveâ by George Thorogood. Glad
he came back w/IDs so I could get a recording. Youtube video of the
reception can be found using this link: https://youtu.be/p4ZiFDbt1q4
(Valko, 10 June)

6930U PIRATE (NA) WEAK/Weak R. Noted after 0005 w/mostly Punk
mx, although they also played âRide Captain Rideâ by Blues Image, and
only novelty C&W song. Many IDs by W including âWe are going crazy
crazy, we are going crazy, very crazy, Weak R., going crazyâ at 0013.
Comedy ads. At 0015, someone came on overtop repeating âWelcome to
Strong R.â which sounded like the anncr from Seven Trees R. When the
bdcst ended at 0017, there were 3 SSTV images aired, but they didnât
seem to be from WEAK. In fact the last was from Pee Wee. Youtube video
of the reception can be found using this link:
https://youtu.be/xOJ8MImKht8 (Valko, 11 June)

6205.01 PIRATE (EUROPE) Laser Hot Hits 0128 Rock song then M
w/Off Shore Echos ad, then back to mx. 0133 ID jingle, and another
song. Thought this might be someone else as they werenât on nominal
6220. (Valko, 11 June)

6925.2v PIRATE (NA) Ion R. Weak signal at 1204, coming up at
1208, then some sort of rumbling effect at 1209 which turned out to be
âambient musicâ according to the op. Finally recognized âEbony Eyesâ by
Bob Welch at 1224, Simple ID by W at 1225, then âLove is in the Airâ by
John Paul Young. Best at 1228. SSTV and off at 1240. Seemed to be
having xmtr trouble. No carrier present most of the time and drifting
around. (Valko, 11 June)

7850 CANADA CHU 1230 nothing but an OC here. Strong
signal. Same on 3330 but a much weaker signal. Must be having some
technical difficulties. 14670 too weak to tell if there was only an OC
there, and the web rxs didnât have it any better. (Valko, 11 June)

11885 ALASKA (USA) KNLS 1457 M anncr sounded like Mandarin
ending w/instru. signature, then 1458-1500 deadair, and 1500 IS twice
and off. Came back on w/IS in progress and into Mandarin pgming.
(Valko, 11 June)

14670 CANADA CHU Indeed, only an OC here at 1900 when the
signal was much improved. Shortly thereafter, Ron Howard forwarded a
quote that they had a suspect piece of equipment and they would be
looking into the problem. By 2045, everything as back to normal on all
freqs. Reception video of the OCs on all freqs can be found using this
link: https://youtu.be/Ox78B0nWFbI (Valko, 11 June)

6924.2 PIRATE (NA) Insane R. From 2343- Soundbites mixed
w/mx. Radio story abt a âregular guyâ who became a time anncr in
WashingtonDC. Unrecognizable Rock songs. 0002 M whistling and saying
he liked to whistle. 0005 repeating âInsane R.â IDs. Another song.
0011 repeating IDs again, and Bluesy song. Went off at 0019. Massive
S9+25 signal. (Valko, 11-12 June)

Sunday, June 11 2017

** ALASKA. 11885 // 11870, June 11 at 1243, KNLS same as yesterday, duplicating English hour on both, so can hardly be accidental. When will they ever get around to posting correct new schedule on all of their own websites?? Poor signal on both, interview about how you are 69% more likely to survive a plane crash if seated in the back. 1247 Profiles in Christian Music, two songs.

1251 Creation Moment, time to tune out their anti-science utter nonsense. It`s possible to be a Christian and *not* be creationist, but you`d never know that from all the SW and other stations that dutifully diffuse it. Recheck at 1316, also same as yesterday, Chinese on 11885 // 9655 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 3330-CUSB & 7850-CUSB, June 11 at 0617, both CHUs are dead air with no timesignals or any modulation! Also 14670-CUSB silent at 1403 check, but lite SSB ACI from algo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Sunday June 11 at 1412, RHC is in Spanish // 17580 et al., not Esperanto as heard on this frequency exactly one week ago by Claudio Galaz, Chile, so that must have been an anomaly. Esperanto reconfirmed here on scheduled 11760 at 1528 June 11, nominally starting at 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1881 monitoring: confirmed Saturday June 10 at 2230 on WBCQ 9330.2v-CUSB, fair-good, having just signed on. Missed checking the 0200 UT Sunday on WRMI 11580; anyone hear it? Confirmed UT Sunday June 11 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM about Alaska DRM, so just started a few minutes ago. Next:
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

Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Full schedule for WORLD OF RADIO including AM/FM, webcasts, satellite: http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

** U S A. 9330v-CUSB, June 10 at 2206 check, WBCQ is off, further evidence that the greatly expanded Overcomer filler is gone (some of which no doubt transferred to 24/7 WWRB 9370/3185). 5130v-AM WBCQ is also inaudible and probably off, as it had been starting at 2200 with BS overnight except when other programming was already on schedule. 7490v-AM at 2206 is on as usual, with JP Ferraro`s `Shortwave Saturday Night` at S9, as he reminds us it is not on 5130 too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Sunday June 11 at 1318, secret WRMI airing of `Wavescan` during discussion about NASB meeting, Ben Dawson`s presentation about AM still being a viable medium in some parts of the world. Like new VOH station in Israel, suggested slogan ``Sounds like heaven on 12-87``, which went on the air March 28. On to Philippine DX report of loggings.

We`re still waiting for some reports on the events at NASB Simi Valley, direct from John Figliozzi and/or Ben Dawson. Nothing on the NASB website itself, but two photo albums are now up, 31 + 25, where else? on their FB,
but requires login. Meanwhile there are bits and pieces about it on Wavescan and Ask WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, June 11 at 1223 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is still AWOL. Had not rechecked it lately, but first noted off as of May 20. Gone for good? Have they notified FCC? On the 1130 DF toward Shreveport I do have a weak gospel huxter this Sunday from KWKH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, June 11 at 1228 UT, KBXD Dallas making slow 1 Hz SAH with KQAM Wichita English talker. Praise music in Spanish, 1234 UT plug some upcoming revivals, 877 phone number, Iglesia EvangÃlica la Nueva Esperanza. So it is still presumably greatly extending the reach of 700 KHSE by duplicating it with 50 kW day.

On June 8 I received this enlightening info from Jerry Kiefer, FL, who used to work for KBXD:

``Glenn, The circus is about to move on. Here's the last chapter in the KBXD saga.

Yet another sale of Dallas AM KBXD/1480, a year after last yearâs transaction with Georgia-based Chris Muse failed to close. That one was for $ 1.5 million (May 11, 2016 NOW Newsletter). The backup buyer is John S. Hammond and Linda Hammondâs Hammond Broadcasting Group, a niche-format player based right there in Dallas. Theyâre paying $ 600,000 for KBXD, which has a six-tower daytime directional array blasting 50,000 watts, and a four-tower directional array for the 1,900-watt night signal. This yearâs price and last yearâs price are more comparable than youâd think â separately, Hammondâs buying the Salem-owned KBXD site for $ 600,000.

The seller of KBXD is the patient Mark Jorgenson of "ACM JCE IV B LLC." That company took over KBXD and three other AMs previously held by James Crystal Enterprises out of the 2015 bankruptcy auction. (The debt-holder was Atalaya Capital.) Buyer Hammond Broadcasting has begun an LMA with KBXD, adding to its interests around Dallas-Fort Worth.

Quick list of those - Hammond Broadcasting owns [ex-] South Asian KHSE Wylie, Texas/700. Johnâs a principal of Texoma Broadcasting, licensee of South Asian daytimer KVTT Mineral Wells/1110. He also has an attributable interest in the company that brokers time on Libermanâs regional Mexican KZMP University Park/1540. Broker on the sale of KBXD â Jorgenson Broadcast Brokerage.

Not much of a deal. Seller grosses 600K, take out of that 200K for engineering including a used DX50 Harris transmitter. The killer was 600k$ to Salem for the tower site, plus out of pocket expenses over the past several years. Hard to move six towers and stay close to the original site. This was the only place you could throw your night lobe over Dallas. Jerry`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1589.89 approx., June 11 at 0610 UT, considerable het from off-frequency station, in fact separable with stronger signal than the 1590.0s --- soft music but it`s just an interlude before 0612 UT resuming talkshow, YL & YL discussing some children`s syndrome. IIRC there was an off-frequency station like this several months ago but I can`t seem to find it by searching IRCA archive or my own (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALASKA. 11885, June 10 at 1256, KNLS English is once again on this unlisted frequency, // scheduled 11870, both about S5, with music coda and no announcements before 1259 when 11870 goes off, but 11885 stays on with carrier, 1300 IS, 1301 Chinese ID and more IS, 1302 theme opening Chinese hour.

Now at 1303 June 10, I find the other // Chinese transmitter has moved to 9655 which is S5 while 11885 is now up to S9. I`m beginning to think 11885 is intentional, despite the most up-to-date schedule version, at least with A-17 dates, at
which shows 11885 only at 08-10 in Chinese; while the 13-14 Chinese is supposed to be on 9920 // 9655. Not heard on 9920, of course.

Could also be second transmitter is stuck on 11885 and won`t change to the other scheduled frequencies for the rest of the span until 1800? Fortunately not much else is in HFCC on 11885 during the 10-18 UT span, so KNLS can get away with this; just imaginary Ujung Pandang [sic], Indonesia in English! at 11-13, 100 kW eastward; and at 17-18 SOFia in Tigrinya, but probably also imaginary, as not in Aoki or EiBi.

BTW, in Russian we are reminded that it`s ALYASKA, not Alaska, the ya having got lost in transition (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, June 10 at 1305, I`m attempting to listen to KBS World Radio in order to fill out their survey. News in progress at S5-S7 or SINPO 25322, just not good enough to follow. 1309 news outro, 1310 weekly interview program with conductor(?) of New York Philharmonic, who must be on a visit. I give up and monitor HLW2 instead.

Even here in summer, this KBS transmission should be on a much lower band, probably 25m, where VOK 11710 is S9+10/S9, much better readable (in Korean now), despite self-jamming! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 12923.0-CW, June 10 at 1320, CQ marker copied over and over as: ``CQ CQ CQ DE HLW2 HLW2 HLW2 QSX 127Z``. Despite repeated tries from very poor signal amid fading I can`t be certain of the last number. I would have expected a 5-digit reply frequency also on the 12 MHz band. HLW2 is Soul Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, June 10 at 0028, poor pirate signal with music, maybe gospel/praise rock? 6940-AM, recheck June 10 at 0032, now it`s hard rock in AM mode with stronger signal but cuts off at end of tune 0033* and does not come back for some while. Makes me wonder whether first 6940 was really AM, or two different stations? What does HF Underground say?

These logs of 6940-AM
say it was Pee Wee between 0007 and 0033*. Clever Name Radio had been on 6940-USB much earlier until 2150* June 9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 89.5-FM, June 9 at 1827 UT on caradio in western Enid, surprised to get a weak signal here in the sidesplash of local 89.7. Fades in and out, but no other signs of Es; promo for Dobson, on Christian Satellite Network. So do they have a nearby 89.5?

Kudos to these gospel huxters for a user-friendly station list, all on one page so easily searched:
Of the nine 89.5 entries, there are two translators not close in Kansas, and this non-translator in OK:

89.5 KJCC CARNEGIE OK --- That`s west of Anadarko, surely what I am getting on the margin, rather than Public Radio Tulsa, KWGS. WTFDA FM DB shows KJCC is 23.5 kW ERP H&V at 118.8 m HAAT.

There is also a 2-page pdf station list; is it identically updated?
in quite a different format, no callsigns; only foreign outlet on both is 97.5 in Tonga,

They also have a page with lots of info on frequency and station changes, etc.: http://www.csnradio.com/news/
Including these:

Stations Off Air: January 9, 2017
Our stations in Carnegie, Oklahoma (KJCC, 89.5 FM) and Chickasha, 102.3 FM (because it takes signal from KJCC) are off the air until KJCC is reconstructed at a new site.

Station Frequency Change: February 14, 2017
Our translator in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (89.5 FM) is now broadcasting at 89.7 FM.

So that may explain why I had not been hearing KJCC before. But there is as yet no new info about KJCC being back on air from new site. From where to where, and why?

CSN was originally Calvary Satellite Network, and got into the FM satellator business early, gobbling up countless frequencies around the country, edging out more diversity on the band. HQ is still in Twin Falls ID. As an example of the absolute nonsense they purvey, currently promoted on website is a book ``Evolution Impossible``!

>From first station list page, link to KJCC shows:

``KJCC provides solid Bible teaching and Modern Praise & Worship music to the Carnegie, OK area. KJCC is a studio-waivered full power FM station, re-broadcasting our primary station, KAWZ Twin Falls, Idaho.

View a Radio Soft Comstudy Longley-Rice coverage map of KJCC.``

This is full of color-coded pixels axually showing a rather small coverage area, but hard to interpret without firm contour lines, Seems less than expected for power and HAAT above. Distance to city is 158 km/98 statute miles from here (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330v-CUSB, June 10 at 1620 check, NO signal from WBCQ, which had been carrying Brother Scare all day and night; while 9265 WINB is fairly audible on Saturday this early. Suspect the greatly expanded hours have been deleted, if not all TOM hours on WBCQ. Axually, was it June 9, 8 or 7, when I checked 9330 for WOR at 2330, and just before then heard The Planet IS & ID loop, implying 9330 had not been on the air all day until about *2325. Previously had made an abrupt switch at 2329 from TOM to WBCQ ID and 2330 WOR.

WBCQ schedules still show extensive TOM hours on all frequencies and likely will be slow to update, just as it took a long time for the TOM expansion to upshow. Likewise Overcomer`s own schedule which contains lots of wrong info, including recently reactivated 9370 & 3185 as BOTH WWRB and WBCQ! More at USA: WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. Correxion: omitted transmitter site SINGAPORE, fixed:

9740, June 9 at 1237 BBCWS with elexion coverage, including itchy-for-autonomy Northern Ireland and Scotland. 1245-1247 break for other news during special `Newshour` (?), about Catalunya referendum for autonomy, Qatar, selling baby chimps in Ivory Coast. S9 fading to S6 is the best BBC can do for us, without really trying. HFCC shows at 10-13 they are splitting SINGAPORE 250 kW with 125 kW each at 135 and 13 degrees, the latter carrying on USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1881 monitoring: confirmed Friday June 9 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.1v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed Saturday June 10 at 1439 the 1431 broadcast on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB: via the UTwente remote, where reception is very poor in noise level but recognizable if not fully readable. Slightly better at 1454 check, and at least there is no CCI audible from the ChiCom. Next:

** U S A. 7490v-AM, UT Sat June 10 at 0020, WBCQ`s `Allan Weiner Worldwide` is instead subbed by J. P. Ferraro, as AW has something else to do tonight. On phone with Ramsey, I think, with long discussion about how DTV means reduced coverage, fewer channels available to J.P., at least, compared to analog era. At 0037 also detectable on 5129.8-AM, poor signal and 47 seconds behind 7490. Says Allan has instructed him to wrap it up by ``9 PM`` = 0100 UT.

I`m wondering if BS hours on WBCQ have suddenly reduced? All frequencies were off the air late last night. Then on UT June 10 at 0552, 9330 is apparently off, at least not propagating; 5130v is off; 7490 is on with music, not BS as is still on e.g. 5850 WRMI. There have been other instances of 7490 playing music late at night instead of BS, who had been running until 0700* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

UNIDENTIFIED. 6920.9-LSB, June 10 at 0030, ``Hola, audio, hello``, counting 1-2-3 over and over in Spanish and English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
