Glenn Hauser logs April 3-4-5, 2019  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 06 2019

** AUSTRALIA. 9610, April 4 at 1325, S8-S9 in S Asian language saying
``@twr.in`` so it must be TWR-India, via?? NO, scheduled is Reach
Beyond Australia on 9610 in Hindi until 1330 Thursdays. Could RBA be
secretly carrying TWR programming, or did I mishear? A bit more S
Asian talk and music follows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 15120-15125, Thu April 4 at 1403, I can tell WINB
hybrid DRM is on, but VP S4 about = noise level. This must be the new
Unique Radio transmission at 14-15 Wed/Thu/Fri. Tim doesn`t say what
the program is --- his own `Sounds of Your Life`??

BTW, NIGERIA could also be DRMing circa 15119.9 as early as 1600 in
Arabic, as reported by Ivo Ivanov; while WINB is scheduled until 1700
M-F, so a head-on collision is possible. I wonder what will happen
then? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1976, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.693, April 4 at 0535 JBA carrier, no doubt an
apparition from Aparecida back on air this overnight, and the OSOB
except for weak 11520 WEWNglish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CANADA. 341 kHz, April 4 at 0549 UT, dash and YYU ND beacon, 500
watts from Kapuskasing, Ontario, one neat name. Town website says,
``Did you know? Kapuskasing means "Bend in the river" in Cree``. Also
logged a USA station on same frequency, different pitch, q.v. (Glenn

** CUBA. 6000, April 4 at 0520, RHC is S9+20 of dead air in English;
6060 is S9+20/30 good modulation of music in Spanish; 6100 S9+20/30,
undermodulated but sufficient to hear; 6165 S9+10 undermodulated.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 15370, April 4 at 1858, S9+10 open carrier from RHC about to
start algo at 1900? Nothing known before 1930 French to Europe. Is
this something wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 5 at 0534, RHC English S9+10 JBM here; 6060 S9+10
good mod; 6100 S9+20 undermodulated; 6165 S9+10 JBM; 5040 S9+20
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Also suffering from local
high line noise level at S9 on this and lower bands! (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 15230, April 5 at 1402, RHC is S8-S9 but just barely
modulated; while 15140 is only S7-S8 but sufficiently modulated. But
by 1651, 15140 is suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6070, Thursday April 4 at 1348, two carriers
making fast SAH, CFRX vs Sea Breeze, JAPAN, as I can almost recognize
its earnest YL in English; as Ron Howard reports, presumably // on
5920 vs Voice of Freedom, which are VP here. At 1405 I am hearing CFRX
only on 6070-minus (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1976, DX

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9630, April 4 at 0516, RNZI is much weaker
than usual, in fact about equal to the het from 9630.48 R. Aparecida,
Brasil. Due to local storms I am on the internal longwire, but don`t
think that should make much relative difference --- if anything,
Brasil should be weaker on it.

9630, April 5 at 0532, RNZI back up to S9+10 tonight, way atop the
still audible Aparecida het to the plus side.

5945, April 5 at 1330, RNZI still on here with music instead of 5980
after 1259, then 1332 YL about Solar System; S9+10 including local HNL
of S9, still detectable past 1400. Perhaps coping with the JSR clash
on 5980? But websked still shows 5980 from 1259 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** RUSSIA. 4635, April 5 at 0137, notorious buzzer is barely audible;
seems not evenly spaced, occasionally a double-buzz, adding up to
approx. 64 times per minute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 9690, April 4 at 1853, REE is poor S4-S8 but
alone. Have not heard the tell-tale het from Nigeria-minus lately. Ivo
Ivanov says the other collision on 9690 with MWV Russian at 19-20 has
been resolved by its last-minute change to 9845 (where I get a JBA
carrier at best) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1976, DX LISTENING

** TURKEY. 15450, April 4 at 1320, no signal from VOT English to
Europe and USward from 1230 in A-19, nor have I been able to detect it
yet past few days; pitiful propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 341 kHz, April 4 at 0549 UT, as I am copying ND beacon YYU
from Kapuskasing, CANADA, another one on same frequency at higher
pitch, much weaker is OIN, 25 watts from relatively close Oberlin,
Kansas, new here. Wait a minute, what about my local on 341, Enid`s
own EI ---? Must be off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday April 3 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S8-S9; and 4 seconds later on
WBCQ 7490.15v, S3-S5.

Missed checking UT Thu April 4 at 0000 on WRMI 7730 while I was at a
planetarium show by Northern Oklahoma College; confirmed at 0125 UT
Thu April 4 the 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair-poor.

** U S A. 17774.990, April 4 at 1408, absolutely no signal from KVOH
if it opened at 1400, or totally not propagating, as usually inaudible
before noon here. By 1852 it`s S7-S8 poor in music, but the OSOB!
Built up to S9 of Spanish praise music by 1952 when I measure it: old
transmitter was put on 17774.989, so I suspect this is still it,
unless they have managed to tune replacement to the same offset? How
about that, Ray Robinson? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs April 2-3, 2019  View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 04 2019

** ALBANIA. 9480, April 2 at 1956, something here cuts off at 1957* in
absence of 9475 WTWW on 5830 instead, and would have been blocked by
9475 splash. It`s only CRI French relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX


** BRAZIL. 4774.976, April 3 at 0624, weak music vs CODAR. Following
my previous report whether it`s Brasil, Perà or Swaziland, Manuel
MÃndez, Spain, IDed RÃdio Congonhas [NOT ``Radio Sora``]:

``Manuel MÃndez, Lugo, Spain, Log in Friol, Tecsun S-8800, cable
antenna, 8 meters: BRAZIL, 4775, Radio Congonhas, Congonhas, 0355-
0445, 02-04, after various months without heard it, now on air.
Brazilian songs, pop songs in English, at 0414: "Uma e quatorze", at
0424: "Radio Congonhas AM...", âRadio Congonhas a emissora do Bom
Jesusâ. Weak. 15311`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9630.47 approx., April 3 at 0556, R. Aparecida reactivated
on split frequency as het way underneath RNZI which landed here for A
-19 in the 05-07 span. See NEW ZEALAND.

Other unblocked ZY frequencies as measured:

9664.626, April 3 at 0559, Voz MissionÃria the outstanding ZY signal
tonight, S9-S7, TC for 3 am at 0600.

9818.762, April 3 at 0603, R. Nove de Julho, JBA, presumably still 24h
relay of R. Aparecida.

11815.028, April 3 at 0606, JBA music presumed R. Brasil Central.

11856v, NO signal from R. Aparecida here.

6134.823, April 3 at 0617, R. Aparecida with song/hymn vs stray Cuban
pulse jamming, S7; 0620 flagship program ID ``Com a MÃe Aparecida``.

This measurement contradicts Anker Petersen who has been reporting it
as 6134.84, apparently needing receiver recalibration. (This is not
splitting hairs, as precise off-frequency measurements are a great aid
to identification, but they need to be accurate.)

Also regarding R. Aparecida, CÃlio Romais in Porto Alegre told me
March 26 that he is still doing a DX report, now only for `Encontro
DX` on this station, Saturdays at 2200 UT; example:
Does not specify frequencies, but has been on irregular variables:
5035, 6135, 9630, 11855 and via 9 Julho 9820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CHINA. 9800, April 3 at 1354, story in English from CRI // 9570 via
CUBA; now here this hour only, 500 kW due SE from Kunming, instead of
VOA Korean heard during B-18 on 9800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** COLOMBIA. 2940+, re my several recent logs of an harmonic here,
many tnx to Brett Saylor who has definitely IDed it as the same one
which was being heard a few years ago:

``Hi Glenn, Regarding the reports of a station on 2940.x, I heard HJNT
Huellas Radio, Cali, Colombia on approx. 2940.11 kHz (2 x 1470.x) with
impassioned Spanish preacher at 1030 UT on 2 April 2019 on my Perseus
SDR and south 16' x 36' Wellbrook broadband loop; confirmed this was
HJNT via comparison with the TWR kiwiSDR in Bonaire and the station's
own web stream at http://www.radios.com.co/huellas/ --- Best 73, Brett
Saylor W3SWL, State College, PA``

Huella means footprint, or vestige, apropos for harmonic, unlikely
chosen deliberately! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, April 2 at 1951, RHC in French, while 15140 is in
English. French must have shifted an hour earlier; still shown in
Aoki/NDXC not starting until 2030. Something`s always wrong? at RHC

** CUBA. 6150, April 3 at 1247, RHC still here as only 49mb morning
frequency, undermodulated, but inaudible on 12300 = x 2. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, April 3 at 1444, RHC is S9+10 of dead air. Also before
1400 I noticed that 13780 was much weaker by comparison. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, April 2 after 2000, VOG poor signal but almost
suffices for napmusic, until chopped off air abruptly at 2020*,
whenever they get around to it regardless of programming in progress

** GUATEMALA. 4055, April 3 at 0629, S9+10 of open carrier which TGAV
has not yet turned off; why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6070, April 3 at 1302, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze
allegedly here via JAPAN, maybe the slight fast SAH on CFRX which is
always a few Hz to the low side. Ron Howard called 6070 a `clear`
frequency for Shiokaze, April 1, maybe in California but certainly not
here. And S/SB has started running a second frequency, 5920 clashing
with another clandestine for NK, Voice of Freedom! There I can`t make
out anything from one or two weakies. However, today April 3, Ron says
S/SB was *not* on 6070 at 1316, just colliding on 5920; what about
tomorrow with English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9630.47, April 3 at 0556, 9630.0 RNZI is
S9+10 but with a het just as I feared, obviously R. Aparecida, Brasil,
reactivated. NZ is way stronger but unnecessarily faces this QRM for
the 05-07 span while countless other 31m channels are vacant. Brasil
prop is up tonight, as I measure several others, q.v.

5945, April 3 at 1245, RNZI on `overnight` channel, S7-S9 fair with
flutter in Pidgin, ``blong Papua New Guinea``. Off before 1259:

5980, April 3 at *1259 RNZI s/on with bellbird, S7-S9 but less fadey,
more solid signal than 5945 had been, as to be expected also switching
from NNW-only to NNE antenna better for us. Initially some residual
Cuban pulse jamming underneath, tho Martà finished an hour earlier.
1300 timesignal and RNZ Pacific, news including case dropped against
Fiji MPs for sedition; Solomon polls have closed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, April 3 at 1255, S6-S9 open carrier with
flutter, decent signal from presumed SIBC, maybe still on for elexion
day, but hardly helpful if not modulated. Some ACI from 5025 Cuba
music; and much stronger than 5055 Australia carrier.

However, Ron Howard says 5020 was modulated: ``SIBC (presumed), 1244+,
on April 3. Another day of slightly above threshold level audio; pop
songs (many C&W songs); another day running past their usual 1200*
(Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, EtÃn E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, WOR iog via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Tue April 2 at 2130, REE splits this frequency from
the others to begin Arabic, ``Huna Madrid``, ex 2230- in B-season. Is
it M-F? Very smooth transition, as `Tablero Deportivo` had just
wrapped up on this and 11940, 9690 (but 11670 still AWOL). After time
pip, 11940 & 9690 continue in Castilian discussing animal languages on
`VÃa AcÃstica``, interesting programming we are deprived of in English
tnx to Coe`s obsession with music. Manuel in Spain also reports Arabic
until 1700 April 3 on 12030, then M/W/F Russian, ex-1800 (Glenn

** U S A. 15730, April 2 at 1950, S9 open carrier, Greenville-B
warming up for 2000 VOA French on same. Unlike B-18, in A-19 there is
no VOA broadcast from another site just before this, so no need for a
warmup on 15740 instead. Sked is now 2000-2030 daily in French, plus
2030-2100 Sun in French, Sat in Hausa. 17530 GB is already running in
French from 1930 daily until 2030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 confirmed, Tuesday April 2 at
2030 on WRMI 7780, VP S4. Next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5950
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0000 UT Thursday WRMI 7730
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

[it is unclear when 1976 will start airing, as 1975 has unavoidably
begun 4 days late; stations please replay latest available edition
if necessary. Hopefully by Friday April 5]

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

** U S A. At 0131 UT Tue April 2, Peter Hansen in FL reported to the
WOR io group: ``No Argentina on 9395 tonight --- Argentina not on
tonight, religion instead, Peace with God. No Albania at 0130 either,
more religion. Peter W Hansen``

Could the relay contract have expired? So I check the confusing WRMI
skedgrids. RAE English at 01 and all the other languages are still
showing as before. Further monitoring: April 2 at 2115, 7780 is poor
in RAE German; 9395 S9 with song in Spanish, 2118 sports report in RAE

9395, UT Wed April 3 at 0059 tune-in, double-audio! from WRMI: gospel
huxter in English runs thru hourtop as `Hope for the Heart`, show
title? while audible underneath is WRMI ID and 0100 RAE multi-lingual
crutch filler, 0102 sign-on in English --- just as QRM stops since
it`s from a different transmitter! cutting off the air, clearing 9395
for RAE only; 0118 another multi-ling ID spiel. It`s hard to imagine
any other US station on 9395 by mistake, rather WRMI QRMing itself.
Searching WRMI skedgrids, no hits on Hope or Heart.

9395, UT Wed April 3 at 0142 check, R. Tirana relay, Klara confirmed
still on WRMI, S9+10, tho missing yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 5830, April 2 at 1956, WTWW-1 night frequency with music
after found missing from day frequency 9475; no doubt Ted failed to
make the QSY yet again this morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 3 at 1441, piano hymn, music unusual on
WJHR Milton FL, but soon back to gospel huxtering. Poor signal, but
would you believe this 1 kW PEP is among the best on band, better than
100 kWs but JBA 15770 SMTV WRMI, and JBA carrier 15825 WWCR? Cubans
also very weak. WJHR rarely audible at all. Narrow HF sporadic E
boost? Maybe, but none showing on 10m DX map (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 15115-15120-15125, April 3 at 1442, WINB hybrid DRM on new
frequency, ex-13750-13755-13760, but VP propagation. As always, DRM
noise on top half only, some kind of secret data beepery (HF trading?)
on bottom half. At least that distinguishes it from Voice of Nigeria,
which also uses 15120 for full DRM normally after 1800, but has also
shown up here much earlier in AM or DRM. I can hardly wait for a head
-on DRM collision (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, April 3 at 1305, JBA carrier, nothing listed.
Certainly not Europirate at this hour; something E Asian? Or WRMI?
