Logs
** ALASKA [and non]. 9920, August 2 at 1301, KNLS IS, very poor with talk CCI; also // 9655 very poor but in the clear. 1303 other music, and presumed Chinese service as A-17 scheduled on both. KNLS English website still shows B-16 schedule this hour with 9655 // 9615! Russian and Chinese versions exhibit correct frequencies.

Per Aoki, collision on 9920 is versus coreligionists! Fellow Christian broadcaster FEBC Philippines, 100 kW due west from Iba site in Koho language daily at 1300-1330. EiBi language list shows Koho/Kohor is spoken by 0.2 megapersons in Vietnam. The evangelists are relentlessly targeting SE Asian minorities for conversion from their original religions. No secular broadcasters bother to radiate their languages.

I`m curious about the KNLS IS --- must be opening from a well-known hymn, but not to me. Can`t find anything on website about its provenance, not even on the About Us page, much of which is very in need of updating, pre-Madagascar. And WRTH is no help, having eliminated info about interval signals, let alone musical notation, years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9565, August 2 at 1308, weak beeps amid heavy splash from 9570 China relay with its spurblob peaks about 5 kHz above and below. Beeps no doubt remnant of jamming which extend far beyond the Martà hours on 9565. These are continuous at about the same pace. Leave it to the Cubans to QRM their own jamming!

9955, August 2 all during WORLD OF RADIO 1889 on WRMI at 1315-1345, beeps are also heard here, single pitch but intermittent, fortunately weak enough not to bother much here. Tnx a lot, Arnie! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed August 2 until 1315 via WRMI, FG Radio is still presenting its subsexion `Travel Gazette` but filling the quarter-hour with a lot of music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKMENISTAN [non]. 15255, August 2 at 1422, fair S9-S7 signal with M&W in Turkic language, lots of pursed-lips umlauting. Aoki shows it`s RFE/RL in Turkmen, 1400-1600, 300 kW, 74 degrees via Woofferton UK. Considering hostility toward a free press, surprised this is not being jammed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

RFE/RL Correspondent Achilova Threatened With Death In Turkmenistan
July 31, 2017

WASHINGTON -- RFE/RL Turkmen correspondent Soltan Achilova reports (in Turkmen) she was threatened with death on July 29, while en route to take photos documenting Turkmenistanâs "Day of Bicycles." Achilova further reports that today (July 31), the man who made the July 29 threat identified himself to her as a police officer tasked to watch her wherever she goes, and again warned her against taking photos, or she will be "finished." The threats follow an assault last week when a man tried to steal her cellphone as she was about to take a picture. -...

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1889 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 2 at 1315.5, following the gh WRMI ID at 1315.0; fair, steady reception staying above beepjamming from Cuba, q.v. Next:

** U S A. 9455, August 2 at 1312, this WRMI is back to `The Power Hour` // 9395 & 7780, all poor-fair and presumably // 13845 JBA WWCR. Just as I am about to mention on new WOR 1889 via 9955 that as of July 31, 9455 had gone back to Oldies during that hour. Recheck at 1425, same set of frequencies for TPH as previous hour, nothing left for Oldies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

BTW, I meant to add to my previous report, that August 1 at 0619, the canned Biermann ID heard on 9455 during `Oldies` alleged it was only on 9395 which at that time had split off to some gospel huxter! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, August 2 at 1359, unlike yesterday, KVOH is already on and poorly audible at S7-S5, music and English sign-on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 13820, August 1 at 1338, considerable pulse jamming against nothing, the B-season-only Radio Martà frequency, which is also getting heavy jamming on 13605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 6250, still no signals from R. Malabo, July 31 at 2310, 2336 chex, nor August 1 at 0330, 0530. It was on the morning of July 29 but off by that evening. So now, what; silent for another sextayear? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1889, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PUERTO RICO. 5125, July 31 at 2300, 2336 chex, and UT August 1 at 0330, 0530, nor August 2 at 0308, no huge carrier or tones on this or nearby frequencies, so the Arecibo ionospheric heating experiment has ended, and WBCQ 5130 and listeners may sigh in relief; until next time? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1889, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1888 monitoring: confirmed Monday July 31 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.06v-CUSB, fair S7. Missed checking UT Tuesday 0030 on WRMI 7730, one of our best signals here, still on the sked.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.07v-AM, Monday July 31 at 2313, Ramsey has apparently played a couple tunes from 2300 on `Furthermore, 29-54`, but now is talking, from the bank of the Tippecanoe River in Monticello, Indiana, plugging other programs on WBCQ, Fred Flintstone and J P Ferraro; 2317 on Kinky Friedman and his song about to be played at 2321, ``Glad to be an asshole from El Paso``, from a live pre-elexion performance and musing about Bernie becoming the first Jew in the White House. At 2323 Ramsey even plugs Glenn Hauser Wednesdays at 5 pm on 7490, and will he talk about the Puerto Rico QRM? Yes, thank you very much. Then something about John McCain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, August 1 at 0615, WRMI with unID gospel huxter, not Bob and not // BS as on 7570 etc., while 9395 is spinning Oldies with usual canned ID by Bob at 0619, then playing ``Whiter Shade of Pale``. Contrary to WRMI skedgrid which still shows both 9395 & 9455 with Oldies in the 05-10 UT block. 9395 started off as the primary Oldies frequency, but now 9455 becomes primary or only, as 9395 is going off to other stuff, also for `Power Hour` in the 13-15 period at least, with Oldies on 9455 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, August 1 at 1406, not even a JBA carrier from KVOH, so not on yet, or not propagating? Not rechecked later on my busy produxion day for WORLD OF RADIO (which KVOH found too hot to handle) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA [and non]. 11680, August 1 at 0530, slightly off-frequency JBA carrier, suspect North Korea, but by 0613, weak signal with (Jesus, not Juche) praise music, so Voice of Hope, Lusaka, which has just resumed morning broadcasts M-F 0500-0800 on 11680 USward, and // 9680 non-direxional, hardly even a JBA carrier here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1889, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs July 31, 2017  View Printable Version 
Monday, July 31 2017

Logs
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, July 31 at 0546, JBA carrier from presumed Bata RNGE; while 6250 is still gone from Malabo. Having proved that transmitter is working, they`ve turned it off again, or it broke down again. We`ll all be keeping an ear on 6250 a while longer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, July 31 at 0648, ORTM is axually modulated as some fix has been done to this long almost inaudible unit; fair signal but splash from 6000 RHC which unfortunately is not undermodulated for a change (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9630, July 31 at 0550, RNZI on new frequency ex-9700, S9+10 and seems clear altho confronting a local device blubbler here, my problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PUERTO RICO. 5125, July 31 at 0059, very strong carrier with tone tests on again tonight, from presumed Arecibo radiotelescope experimenting with ionospheric heating. Last night the tones were in steps, but tonight they are sweeps up and down in pitch, and between them the carrier cuts off briefly. These can be heard all the way between 5113 and 5145, weakening toward the edges, and of course, blotting out the very weak signal from WBCQ 5129.82-AM. Still the same past 0107 and 0121. Next check at 0219-0221 nothing heard, but WBCQ is still too weak in storm noise level.

After 0300, when WORLD OF RADIO is on WBCQ, the 5125 signal is back on, but weakened, now with tones stepping upward causing weak hets to very poor WBCQ. By 0332, 5125 is S9+30 fading to only S9, and cutting on and off without tones at the moment. At 0434 off; at 0545 open carrier back on. At 0650 final check, still weakened unmodulated carrier. July 31 is supposed to be the final date for this week-long experiment, so unclear whether it will be on again for UT August 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1888 monitoring:
GERMANY Reception of HLR relays on 9485=CUSB, July 30 Hamburger Lokalradio --- World of Radio #1888
1030-1100 on 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uiv8LfyPdM4&feature=youtu.be
-- 73! (Ivo Ivanov, QTH: Sofia, Bulgaria, Equipment: Sony ICF-2001D 30 m long wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST) Theme recognizable, not readable but improving in first sesquiminute (gh)

Also confirmed Sunday July 30 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.2v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday July 31 from 0300 on Area 51 webcast (a few seconds of the 0330 program cued up, Hobart Radio International started by mistake, quickly cut to WOR); while WBCQ 5129.8-AM is very weak, and obliterated by tone tests from huge 5125 transmitter, presumed to be ionospheric heating experiments from Arecibo, Puerto Rico, oblivious of the US SW station nearby. Also confirmed UT Monday July 31 at 0330 on WRMI, 9955, fair. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Remember that new 1889 should start Tuesday at 2130 on 9455 & 15770; or if I am delayed, maybe at 2330 on 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, July 31 at 1321, WRMI is back to Oldies here instead of duplicating 9395 with `The Power Hour`. But when I tune in at 1321, it`s VOA news relay at odd time, soon followed by Biermann`s WRMI ID and ``Something Happened`` -- indeed; while TPH is in a 4-minute ad break. Nice of them to warn listeners how long they may safely tune out. 9395 is still // weaker 7780 WRMI, and stronger 13845 WWCR which is ahead by about a semiminute. At 1424 check, still music on 9455, TPH on 9395 // 7780, both very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
