log 0525 - 0552 UT on remote SDR units in Doha Qatar and Spain


ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 12 at 0040 check, University Network is
still silent.
Ditto day frequency 11775 Jan 12 at 1522, 1849.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

ETHIOPIA Nothing heard around 7235v ... 7236.642 kHz fq.


All others from ETH on air, all S=7 signal average, only 5950 kHz is tronger
at S=8-9 level. Seemingly Gedja antenna favours the azimuth out signal
towards Doha Qatar on that channel.

At this hour grayline is across Istanbul - Athens,
nightline across Monaco Riviera - Algiers.

6109.999 Radio Fana, Oromo progr, HoA mx, S=7 at 0525 UT in Doha Qatar.

6090even right Radio Amhara in Amharic lang, S=7 at 0531 UT Jan 13, guitar
string instrument like music program.

6029.997 Radio Oromiya in Afar, S=7 at 0534 UT on Jan 13, people singer
chorus, and followed by HoA string instrument mx at 0536 UT.

5949.999 Vo Tigre Revolut progr at 0541 UT on Jan 13, little stronger than
the others S=8 to mainly S=9...


BRAZIL In order to check 6090 kHz channel,
when Anguilla unit is OFF THE AIR at present,
noted here both programmes

- Ethiopia on even 6090 fq channel, and

- Radio Bandeirantes at S=6 signal at 0553 UT on Jan 13:

6089.961 kHz exact measured.


SUDAN 7205.001 Sudan Radio Omdurman, S=9+20dB at 0545 UT on Jan 13, but
only LOW MODULATION.

To be heard anything of their transmission on the remote SDR in Doha Qatar,
I switched OFF the AGC automatic option,
and used the volume slider by hand.

[selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz]

Friday, January 13 2017

Logs
** ALASKA [and non]. 7355, Jan 12 at 1303, RNZI news in English and 1306 about a Bougainville separatist group, first mixed with religious music making 4 Hz SAH, and 1306 talk in Chinese. About equal levels adding up to S9 to S9+10. I`m not the first to notice this clash, which seriously appears to be by KNLS, which is supposed to stop 7355 at 1300*, just in time for *RNZI. It does have Chinese scheduled at 1300 on both transmitters, 9655 designated Channel 61, and 9680 as Channel 6 on this undated schedule:
http://www.knls.org/broadcasting-front.html
Meanwhile, 7355 is designated channel 51 --- what`s this channel business? Meaningless to anylistener, probably in-house terminology, and mixing up 51 with 61 might account for punching in the wrong frequency for the 1300 broadcast!

The KNLS Chinese page,
http://www.smzg.org/home/
however, claims the 1300 broadcast is on 9655 and 9920, which appear to have been the A-15 frequencies. By 1404 recheck, RNZI is clear on 7355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 12 at 0040 check, University Network is still silent. Ditto day frequency 11775 Jan 12 at 1522, 1849 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 540, Jan 12 at 1320 UT, discussion of drought and floods due to climate change in Saskatchewan, from CBK in well, or XETX La Ranchera de PaquimÃ, Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, frequent canned IDs, mutually nullable without anything from the country in between (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 680, Jan 12 at 1324 UT, treacherous traffic report about Winnipeg area from CJOB, Chevrolet dealer sponsor. Good for a while rather than St Joe or San Antonio, just after hearing 540 CBK and before hearing 750 CKJH; see separate logs. CJOB is 50/50 kW U4, both day and night patterns going N/NNE, little or nothing to the south, yeah, sure (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 750, Jan 12 at 1330 UT, nulling KOAL UT, I get another station in English, obviously Canadian referring to km, highway 345(?), provincial news, Battleford, Prince Albert, high temperature minus 26, yourtownnews.ca which in turn is connected to CK750, as CKJH in Melfort, Sask. is branded, linking to http://www.ck750/com and plug a pizza party. One YL seems to be doing all the announcing, news and commercials. Need USB tuning to avoid 740 KRMG splash. CKJH day pattern is ND; night pattern mostly to the north (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 3330-CUSB, Jan 12 at 0710, CHU timesignals confirmed, but inaudible on 7850 --- has been having some transmitter interruptions, but in the nightmiddle, 7850 could still be on and not propagating.

7850-CUSB, Jan 12 at 1309, now 7850 is in at S9+, but nothing audible on their third frequency, 14670-CUSB, which like 7850 at night, could still be on but not propagating even in the daytime. 3330 is also still audible at S4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9100, Jan 12 at 1407, JBA carrier with flutter. Presumably Echo of Hope on new frequency since Jan 1 per Aoki, heard by Ron Howard yesterday // 4885 around 1400 altho initial schedule was 1755-2400 only; also watch out for Sound of Hope, Taiwan and/or ChiCom jamming which may also appear on 9100. I`ll have to start/end my 9 MHz bandscans on 9100 now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1570, Jan 12 at 1347, XERF plug for `Antena Radio Segunda EdiciÃn`, which I guess is later in the day, noon? en 107.9 y 1220, from IMER, referring to the XEB DF MW frequency and maybe that`s now its own FM, also on ``estaciones en el interior de la repÃblica``, (Ciudad AcuÃa seeming like that from the metropolis? Even tho it`s right on the border, with the DF much more ``interior``).

Good signal now but hardly a border blaster any more, and USA is no help allowing lots of low-power CCI. Still claims and listed as 100 kW, but Jerry Kiefer, ex-KBXD, tells me: ``HI Glenn, Mike Van Hooser in Dallas showed me a Mexican government web page where they were listed as 30 kW/Radio Poderosa. Evidently been that way for a few years`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7355 QRM: see ALASKA [and non]

** THAILAND. 9390, Jan 12 at 1409, HSK9 with English broadcast, poor S3-S5, 1415 music. Needs LSB tuning to avoid WRMI 9395. As I`ve said time and again, the 1230 and/or 1400 English broadcasts would be much better for North America than the inaudible evening ones, if the RTG would aim a clear frequency our way, or better yet, insist on using Greenville in exchange for IBB continuing to use Udorn (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1859 monitoring: confirmed UT Thursday January 12 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, poor.

WORLD OF RADIO 1860 monitoring: confirmed first SW airing, Thursday January 12 at 1230 on WRMI 9955, very poor S2, and yes, now on // 6855, which is S9! But by 1255 recheck the reception is reversed, 6855 faded down to S4-S6, and 9955 up to S9 to +10 (and no jamming).

Seeking Okeechobee sunrise at gaisma.com, not among the scores of Florida towns included, nor any close ones around the Lake, but the nearest I can find is Yeehaw Junxion, just north of Okeechobee, when the sunrise today was 1216 UT, so within half an hour, 6 MHz was dropping out and 9 MHz building up.

However, busy with other things, I miss checking the Thu 2130 on 11580, and the UT Fri 0030 on 9330. If anyone can confirm hearing either, or hearing the frequency but not the program, please let me know. Next:

Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Jan 12 at 0030, English relay // much stronger 5850, R. Slovakia International as now on WRMI schedule, also allegedly // 11580 but too weak to tell (as is 9955 at this hour).

6855 // 5850 // 7730, Thu Jan 12 at 0705, WRMI with interview in English about Marshall Islands, soon Keith Perron introducing something from RNZ, so this is still a PCJ Radio International Hour on Thursday, despite the WRMI sked grid at http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs showing it on UT Fridays! On 5850 & 7730.

6855, UT Fri Jan 13 at 0120 guy talking about how there was no such people as Palestinians before 1947, while the Jews in Israel go way back further than that (so on with settlements, push `em out). Circa 0150 recheck, `Your Weekend Show` mentioned in passing, which is scheduled this hour on 11580, now duplicated on this audible and propagable frequency. It`s from the so-called TruNews network which already occupies 9395 fulltime, but I don`t know if also on there at this hour. Anyhow, Thursday evening is hardly weekend unless you`re, Allah-forbid, Moslem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Jan 12 at 1903, dead air from WTWW-2; I stick with it and finally comes to life at 1907 re-opening `Dave Ramsey` show. So they leave the news hole holey --- an improvement over three hours of dead air, or worse, dead air except for commercials, both of which have happened (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Jan 12 at 1328 UT, `America`s Morning News` show going into commercial break, loops NW/SE, ad for attending NASCAR in Vegas, fading and separable from Canadian [q.v.], back in at 1335 UT. I think this must be KOAL Price UT, 10/6.8 kW U2, likely on ND day pattern since at night it`s cardioid nulling east. And KOAL is news/talk with lots of networks, but NRC AM Log does not show it as a TRN affiliate; AMN website does not provide any affiliate list:
http://www.talkradionetwork.com/shows/americas-morning-news/

Not daytimer KMMJ NE this early, nor KSEO Durant OK, another daytimer I have never heard from across this state. But soon, WNDZ Indiana (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Jan 12 at 1353 UT, Ukrainian with heavy American accent, mention www.oldtownschool.org which is a folk music school in Chicago, so certainly WNDZ Portage IN. I had already heard Utah and Saskatchewan on 750, much further west. Maybe some CCI in Spanish now, El Paso or Grand Island (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Jan 12 at 1429 UT, after Howard Kurtz, Fox mention, ``Newstalk 750`` ID and calls sounded like KGNU, but only fit is KBNN Lebanon MO, 5 kW daytimer, after hearing other 750s: KOAL, CKJH, WNDZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1200, Jan 12 at 1343 UT, romantic Spanish music from NE/SW overcoming WOAI, 1358 UT Chicago ad, ``UnivisiÃn AmÃrica, 1,200, una emisora Uforia, WRTO, y ####, Evanston``, back to music. Not sure what the unlisted co-station is, maybe FM. Anyhow, they have not yet flipped to sports network as had been reported:

``This from DX-midAMerica: IL, Chicago, WRTO, 1200, will flip to the new Spanish sports network UnivisiÃn Deportes Radio in the new year (20 kW days, 4.5 kW night - BD) Best wishes (Barry :-), Carlisle UK, Davies, mwcircle yg via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1260, Jan 12 at 1359 UT, norteÃa music past hourtop, 1402 fade for ID, maybe ``La Tremenda``. None such; I`ll have to settle for likely La Reina, which is KDLF Boone IA, 5000/33 watts for Des Moines market (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2520, Jan 12 at 1312, talk at S9, but still unreadable, much stronger than harmonic on 2960, while 2520 is presumably 1260 x 2 from WOCO Oconto WI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2960, Jan 12 at 0722 UT, S4 signal with trace of music, presumed the currently active harmonic of 1480, WERM, Mobile AL.

2960, Jan 12 at 1310, still VP carrier at S4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search January 12, UT:
Nothing on low or mid-band, but just:
1098-W at 1317, presumably V7AB Marshall Islands carrier still on
1566-NW at 1320, stronger carrier, presumably HLAZ, FEBC Jeju Island, Korea South (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2749-USB, Jan 12 at 0719 UT, fragments sound like man in French on the Canadian Coast Guard frequency, but the website shows no broadcasts until 0740 from the Nova Scotia-area stations. Is it also used for 2-way communications? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 0505 UT January 13

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Jan 10 at 2113, the PMS/DGS station is still AWOL. Has been off since at least January 8. 6090 also off at night; see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1860, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

** CUBA. 15140, Wed Jan 11 around 2030, RHC English is here with mailbag, and on 15370 Arabic, as both are scheduled. Checking because on Jan 10 at 2005, JRX in Brasil found English on 15370 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7236.79v, Jan 10 at 1512, JBA carrier by long path from R. Ethiopia. Keeps varying as I try to measure it, so will dispense with the third decimal place (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR [and non]. 17640, Jan 9 at 1821, MWV APR is good at S9+20. Equally good signals from 17655 VOA GB Portuguese, 17775 KVOH LA Spanish.

17640, Jan 11 at 2013, the MWV repeat English hour still with fair signal, and modulation is always good, making easy listening, if one cares to put up with proselytizing from this faraway station, on the SWBC island closest to our antipodes. By this time there is hardly anything else listenable on 16m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.920, Jan 10 at 0739, VON with usual good signal, not in French, but now in African language, Fulfulde listed for 0730-0800; talking about Boko Haram and Maiduguri (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNIDENTIFIED. 6925.0-AM, Jan 10 at 2124, very poor pirate signal with music, S8 vs noise level of S7, but better than 6855 WRMI, and apparently off by 2126. No logs of it on Free Radio CafÃ, nor on HF Underground, but Chris Smolinski heard an unID signing on 6925, Jan 8 at 2043 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15300, after hearing [Station YHWH] here once around 2100, further chex have not found it, such as Jan 10 at 2100; nor Jan 11 at 2043. He could well be trying other higher-band frequencies in daytime, like two+ years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1860, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1859 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue Jan 10 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v+CUSB, very poor. Also same time on WRMI 7730, very good. Confirmed Tue Jan 10 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair S9+10. Confirmed Tue Jan 10 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, fair with lite jamming (but not // now on 6855, other programming). Not confirmed UT Wed Jan 11 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330, no signal (but propagation is really poor with 9265 WINB JBA carrier, even 9395 WRMI JBA carrier, and no 9955, and 6855 VP carrier). Also confirmed Wed Jan 11 at 1415.5 on WRMI 9955 with poor signal, and now // 6855 very poor. Also confirmed Wed Jan 11 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490, fair.

** U S A. 7780, Jan 10 at 0030, after many weeks, WRMI is finally reactivated on this frequency, poor with BS, and nothing but BS all-night, presumably, still at 0737 check when it`s much weaker than // 7570 and non-// 7730 with `World Music`. 7780 still active Jan 11 at 0555 with BS // 7570.

6855 // 5850 // 7730, Tue Jan 10 at 0744, all three WRMIs playing ``Zorba the Greek``, part of the `World Music`` rotation. Likewise all three // with `World Music` at 0714 Wed Jan 11. Skedgrid shows 0600-0800 on 5850 & 7730 with blanks for most of 06-07, variety 07-08 (and 5850 with another two hours of unknown System D content at 08-10, while 6855 is System D at 06-07; but 6855 as System B at 05-07 & 08-10, i.e. like 9955, but is it BS or not, any more, at those hours??)

9955, Jan 10 at 2100, WRMI with TOM // 11825. For some weeks the 21-22 hour on 9955 had instead been filled with `World Music`. What`s on 6855 now? Too weak JBA carrier to tell.

11580, Tue Jan 10 at 2130, WRMI with `Frecuencia al DÃa`, one of its multiple airings, this one ex-13695 (while WOR is still on 15770).

6855, Tue Jan 10 at 2300, WRMI now with the AWR Spanish program from and to Cuba, originally on // 5950 only. Meanwhile, WOR is on 9955.

6855, Wed Jan 11 at 1207, DX program in Spanish about RNE, // weaker 9955, where Antena DX is scheduled. So I am confident 6855 will also be // 9955 during the World of Radio broadcasts Thu at 1230 & Tue at 1200.

11580, Wed Jan 11 at 2014 tune-in, `WNYW` style WRMI ID plays, 2015 music presumably `World Music`. The sked grid shows for 20-21 UT, only on Wed a blank hour, but something else must have run from 2000 to 2014, like `Viva Miami`, for a quarter-hour ID to fire.

Skedgrid now shows 11580 with System D additionally at 2200-2400, but no details yet. That means non-BS variety of programming. Wed Jan 11 at 2200 it sounded like one of those European relays in English, this hour also // 6855.

As of Jan 12, the WRMI transmission grid (but not the program grid) confirms much of our 6855 monitoring observations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1860, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275+, Jan 9 at 1924, WMLK is on with DEJOM. Also Jan 10 at 2120, DEJOM at S9+10, obviously off-frequency+plus, making het with BFO on 1 kHz step tuning, so I downpin it to 9275.048. Seems nominal sked is until 2200 but sometimes off earlier. Also heard on 9275+ Jan 11 at 2013, fair signal but undermodulated DEJOM = deceased Elder Jacob O Meyer, WMLK founder, and hardly any non-deceased voice is ever broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 7250, Tue Jan 10 at 0742, sounds like VOA news, American accent about Sen. Sessions --- NO, it`s Vatican Radio since next item is about Pope Francis. NO English scheduled here now, instead only on 15595 at 0730-0745 except Sundays. Further checking sked, 7250 has Arabic to NW Europe(!) at 0745-0805 daily except Sunday, so another example of slipshod operation at SMG, turning on transmitter early with wrong program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Jan 10 at 2055, Ungujan music from ZBC until cutoff at 2100.4* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6090-v, Jan 11 at 0717, in the absence of Anguilla, two JBA carriers beating slightly on the low side. One of them is constantly varying about 6 Hz from the other, so I don`t get a steady tone with BFO. Ethiopia is supposedly in a break from 06 to 09 (and too far into the dayside), leaving R. Bandeirantes, Brasil, and R. Kaduna, Nigeria if active? Aoki shows no Chinese or other Asians now, and never mind the imaginary Chilean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
