New 1450 Log From Laramie, WY  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, December 04 2019

Tuning across the dial, I happened upon the tail end of a local spot that
mentioned "Yankton" into a liner for "1450 KYNT", 435 miles.

And as I was typing this email, I heard a mention of "FM 99.5 and AM 1450",
which would most likely make that KWBE Beatrice, NE, 468 miles.

** ARGENTINA [non]. Surprise, 6060, Dec 3 at 0115, RHC has reactivated
here in Spanish, and no sign of WRMI relay of RAE in Spanish which has
been here for a month with no RHC collision. WRMI must have been aware
of this before and quickly turned off. Maybe it will go back to 5800,
but not enough signal there now to tell, and all the other WRMI
frequencies seem nominal, except 7570 is missing. 4980 also has not
been resumed.

9395, UT Tue Dec 3 at 0203, RAE via WRMI relay in English, announcer
confused, claiming the time for this is ``1 AM UTC Tuesday-Saturday``;
and playing music at outset rather than news. At 0211, feature about
Argentine rock, not the DX Actuality program I was anticipating, so
apparently the Monday, not Friday show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 3 at 0115, surprise, RHC has reactivated here as
published for B-19, but not in use before now as WRMI had overtaken it
at 2100-0200 including RAE relay after 0100 --- but tonight there is
no sign of WRMI/RAE here or anywhere, as if they coordinated quitting
6060 as soon as RHC returned? RHC is S9+20/30 and // 11760. 6060 is
still on at 0508 & 0550 but in Spanish, not English.

5040, Dec 3 at 0116, this RHC is off again. Back on in Spanish with
squeals at 0546. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6100, Dec 3 at 0547, RHC English best here by far, then 6145, then
6000 which is suptorted; 6060 reactivated but still in Spanish,
likewise 5040; maybe one or both became in English after 0600?

COVER STORY: Preparing the next generation of GPS | Watch Video

Originally developed by the U.S. military, the Global Positioning
System (GPS) as we now know it became operational in 1995, and has
since become vital to nearly every facet of modern life, from our
smartphones to the internet and the electrical grid. David Pogue was
invited into the Air Force's GPS Master Control Station at Schriever
Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo, and visits Lockheed Martin,
where a new generation of GPS III satellites is being built.

** U S A. 7490, Dec 3 at 0113, no signal from WBCQ, suspected OFF
rather than merely not propagating; but S-S on 9330 is weak, and 5130
is off as normal. Still no activity on 6160 which might have worked
better than 7490.

WBCQ 7490 webcast is running as usual with `From the Isle of Music`
here anyway. When I opened Winamp at 0125 it was already ``tuned`` to
my surprise, to `WJNE FM 87.9 Claggettsville`. Zappahead is involved
in that so must be what listening to Area 51 last night have morphed
into (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue Dec 3 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA S6-S8. Next:
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 7570, Dec 3 at 0112, this WRMI is off, some #11 transmitter
problem, but back on with TOMBS at 0209 check.

See also ARGENTINA and CUBA. Nothing yet about 6060 on WRMI FB, but
they`ve been busy celebrating 25th anniversary:

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Dec 2 at 2045 tune-in, Radio Tirana via WRMI
again comes in better on BST-1 caradio than my home rigs. Klara is
amid a history of Radio Tirana itself, various language services
coming and going, alliances with Russia, Yugoslavia, China coming and
going, notably lots of aid from China in the form of new studio and
transmission equipment. Interrupted by unID song at 2049.5-2052, and
another at 2055.5.

She also says there are 66 competitive stations in Albania but not
suitable for external service. Radio Tirana has the largest archive of
Albanian music; and she claims RTI now has more listeners than it did
on SW; but not going into how SW transmitter slowly failed and was
abandoned, nor how RT regained SW coverage tnx to relays in Germany
and Florida arranged by others. Nor how there`s any way of accurately
measuring SW audiences, then or now.

One might hear the start of this story by tuning in earlier to the
expected repeat UT Tuesday Dec 3 on 9395 after the 0230 news (Glenn

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Monday Dec 2 at 2226, RAE in Italian via
WRMI in DX program, so this must be the show originally from Friday
--- are all these a day or three late as aired here? Playing some
Arabic music and talk clips, not sure about what; next topix: Russian
Duma banning Deutsche Welle; Sri Lanka gets $ 300 million of aid from
China; TRT Turkey gets (or gives?) some journalism award; Holland
private stations authorized to start DAB in January; 2234 ID as
``Attualità DX di Arnaldo Slaen`` apparently ending program. I did not
hearing anything about DX on it. Into music; 2237 RAE multi-lingual ID
reel and introducing some North African Berber music.

There was an annoying music bed thruout the DX show, but kudos to the
YL announcer who enunciates quite clearly and slower than other
Italian shows we hear, allowing me to comprehend her better. Perhaps
the English version of the same DX Actuality show will appear UT
Tuesday Dec 3 at 0200-0230 on 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** KOREA SOUTH. 9100, Mon Dec 2 at 1539, JBA carrier, not plus or
minus 5, so Echo of Hope must be back on original frequency this week.
And the several others will have made their own 5-kHz jumps (Glenn

** NICARAGUA. 8989-USB, Dec 2 at 2210, I finally have a chance to
monitor the ``fisher-preacher``, variously known as El
Predicador/Pescador, believed to be somewhere within or next to
Nicaragua. He`s in EiBi as irregular, 2130-2400. Reception is
generally weak and marginal, but at tune-in I hear music, which
certainly does not belong in the aero band (nor do ships); I don`t
recall others reporting music from this. The hymn is mixed with
exhortations; 2220 mentions ``sangre de dios``; and several long
pauses, and several ``buenas tardes`` as apparently switched to 2-way
contacts with listeners; ``dios bendiga``; 2223 finally audible a
different voice answering (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 2 at 2354, Radio Chaski carrier VP but quite
audible amid Cuban wall-of-noise jamming against nothing else; until
autocutoff at 2355:15.0*. I missed checking on Dec 1, but this is 2.5
seconds earlier than two nights ago, Nov 30 until 2355:17.5. So there
is slight variation in slippage but always a few seconds earlier.
Since my initial precise timing in the latest cycle, Nov 26 until
2355:27.5*, six nights ago, that makes an average of 2.08 seconds
earlier per noctem.

BTW, altho the NASWA Flashsheet publishes most of my reports, as long
as I am not quoting someone else, you`ll have to follow this thread
somewhere else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820+v, Dec 2 at 2205, no signal from Riyadh, nor in
past several days` random afternoon chex. This HQ service used to be a
reliable source for naptime lullabyes upon signature
off-frequency+plus. Still scheduled in HFCC B-19 at 1800-2300, 500 kW,
320 degrees to WEu and USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, 12030, 11940, Dec 2 at 2204 and still 2240 on 9690 at
least, open carrier/dead air on all REE frequencies except 11685 no
signal. The first pair are burning the kW to the tune of S9+10; the
third at S9. Is no one awake at Noblejas? Was English at 2300 also
dead? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
December 1 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair S8-S9.

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 2 at 0153, the 0130 on WRMI 7780, fair

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 2 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, S9+10, and
synchronized // 9395 at S6-S8. In this case, lower MUF tr*mps closer

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 2 starting at 0405 on Area 51 webcast after
JL and after an extra song inserted about ``Mari-ju-wanna``. At 0417
check, WBCQ 5130v is poor and noisy S9. My last few words at 0434 are
overridden by HRI a little too eager to get started late too.

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 2 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10 but with
some occasional lite pulse jamming audible.

Also confirmed Monday Dec 2 starting da capo at 1900:35.5 as monitored
on IRRS 7290-Romania? via UTwente SDR. This week the big carrier cuts
on at *1857.5, a semiminute after CRI 7285 cut off, but soon back on
at 7295. IRRS audio does not cut on until 1900:25.5, for just a few
words of news headlines, and again missing the IRRS Aida IS and
sign-on, but WOR play starts at the beginning; progress. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A [and non]. 9330.00, Mon Dec 2 at 0717, WBCQ-6 World`s Last
Chance gospel huxter in English colliding with Cuban HM01 spy numbers
station, digital bursts alternating with YL numbers. They add up to
S9+30 but most of that is WLC Radio which is atop. We knew this was
going to happen sooner or later with WBCQ`s 23-hour schedule. As in
EiBi, Cuban spies are active on 9330 this hour only on M/W/F/Sundays.
My, oh, my, how are their agents in the US going to know what to do on
those days? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. In this item, and I think only this item, not under
SAUDI ARABIA itself, I misnamed the city for 1521 as Doha, instead of
Duba; fixed:

1520+, Nov 27 at 2226 UT, I`m straining to hear a tell-tale het from
1521 upon 1520 KOKC, since Duba, Sa`udi Arabia 2000 kW is about to
sign off at 2231* as noted by Bruce Conti, NH. It used to be obvious
when it ran all-night. I do detect a JBA carrier, but sounds less than
1 kHz, so maybe KRHW Sikeston MO which has varied before; and still
there at 2233 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
