Logs
** ANTARCTICA. Manuel Méndez, Spain on the WOR iog follows up to my
last report about JBA carrier detected from LRA36 a few minutes later
the same date: ``15476, LRA 36, Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel,
Base Esperanza, *1232-1310, 03-10, carrier and some songs and comments
detected here in Friol. Extremely weak. Checked at 1500 and later, no
carrier and no audio detected. Observed this week and the previous one
here in Friol and via SDR Kiwi receivers in Brazil, LRA 36 seems to
have returned to its previous schedule, only on air Tuesdays and
Thursdays from 1230 to about 1430 and perhaps some of these days, but
not always, repeating program at 1800`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 4 at 1356, CHR is stronger than usual, S9+10
but also over-modulated, distorted --- and ``no report received`` by
Trenton Military from anywhere! as I listen to cycle repeating, mostly
concerning western Canada bases. On unattended autopilot? Nor does
anyflight really depend on this? Even stronger than CHU 14670, only
S9. 15034 recheck at 2123, exactly the same situations still. Sad
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COSTA RICA. 18124.9-USB, Oct 4 at 1440, JBA ham making quick
contest-like QRZ contacts with DJ4 Germany, VA2 Canada. Finally copy
his callsign TI2CC. He`s the OSOB, barely below the MUF. Per QRZ.com
lookup, CARLOS PAEZ PIZARRO, somewhere in CR but with forwarding
address in Miami, but don`t send him US stamps. He has quite an
elaborate antenna setup and displays many awards since 1959. It pays
to keep an ear on this 18068-18168 band which the MUF can sometimes
surpass, rather than 21, 24, 28 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA 9620-9660, Oct 4 at 1435, RHC still buzzing around 9640,
barely bothering China radio war on 9660. No RHC-FM on 13 MHz today.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13735, Oct 4 at 1400, unusually strong S9+10 in Russian, but
some flutter, too close to 13740 RHC so I switch to LSB, but RHC
shortly closes. VIRI, 1320-1420 at 500 kW, 336 degrees from Sirjan,
across western Russia and ultimately USward. Nothing else is ever on
13735.

13590, Oct 4 at 1402, S5-S8 of dead air with flutter, much like 13735,
and this is also VIRI, but other Zahedan site scheduled until 1430 in
Arabic, 500 kW, 289 degrees per HFCC. Not much else audible on band
except 13700 Cuba-no spurs, and JBA too close at one megameter, 13845
WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Fri Oct 4 at 2130, REE accurate 6-pip TS compared a
minute later to WWV as I note the correxion factor on my watch, and
into Arabic; while 11940 // much stronger 9690 are also on and
modulating something else, presumed Spanish. Still no signal on 11670
for Africa, where either language could be helpful. At 2228 recheck
all three are // with music ending English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 4 at 2227, no signal from VOT English to us, even
with no RTTY; presumed absent as 9420 Greece is well audible (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2002 monitoring: confirmed first SWBC, Friday
October 4 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+10.

Also confirmed at 0155 check UT Sat October 5, the 0130 WRMI

** U S A. WRMI: See UNIDENTIFIED 17850

** U S A. 9330, 6160, UT Sat Oct 5 at 0000, no signals from WBCQ, nor
even a JBA carrier on 3265-; 5130- and 7490+ are playing different
music until 0002 when 7490.07 only IDs and starts ``William Tell
Overture``, soon an interjexion of ``impeach`` not by Allan of course,
but by TimTron who is subbing again on `Allan & Angela WorldWide`
because they are on a ``journey`` --- back to DeLand of Fla already
before Maine freezes? which it is about to per TT. He confirms this
week it`s monocasting on 7490 only, without explanation other than a
belch. Into his political comments, a pleasant change from AW, since
TT thinx Trump has got to go. He doesn`t watch Fox News, but PBS is
the ``gold standard`` like BBC which it relays as well as TV news from
NHK and DW. Refers to China`s terrible treatment of Uyghurs in East
Turkistan, as apparently he just watched PBS Newshour like I did with
a report about brainwashing there as the penultimate part of a series
about China.

[China calls it re-education, but Uyghur Muslims say it’s ‘unbearable
brutality’ --- 15:36 audio-video:

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/china-calls-it-re-education-but-uyghur-muslims-say-its-unbearable-brutality
Oct 4 NBC Nightly News also had a much briefer item about this.
Remember the Uyghurs whenever you listen to Kashgar or Urumqi, or
anything from China.]

TT concludes his first segment lamenting how poorly humans treat each
other, which has got to change. Was atheist, now agnostic; suspects
humans developing suddenly (?) from primates resulted from aliens
visiting earth to experiment, and if they come back, may not be
pleased with how we turned out.

After that he he plays some Anthrax, 0023 Red-Eye, and more music than
talk, as he says his voice is giving out; entertains us with crickets
& bees ambiance as mentioned at 0025! Refers to his own show which he
says is always at 7 pm EDT/EST on Sat & Sun.

At 0031 finally something about the Super-Station which he thinx has
been testing on 9330, but I don`t, not in the past week. It needs to
operate on 12.12 MHz, but the tuning procedure is not easy; a crew may
be coming up from Continental to do that (I thought they already had),
but if not, TT will have to figure it out. If he were in charge, would
have set it up differently. I move on and don`t hear the second half.
I`ve been listening only direct on 7490+, not webcast.

Here`s John Carver`s summary: ``Listening on 7490 this evening. Theme
song started about two minutes late and TimTron is hosting. The music
for a dropped signal on Area 51 was used and Tim could be heard
talking to Jason under the music. Tim said that Allan and Angela were
"traveling". He also said they were only broadcasting the show on
7490. Opening talk is anti-Trump. Interesting that last week Allan
used the term Nazi to refer to Congress and tonight Tim uses it to
refer to Trump and his supporters. Into music at 0015. A bit more
political talk and then a mention of engineers working on the
superstation transmitter but no details about anything. Back to music
at 0034. Program was off the air without a proper closing at 0100 and
7490 immediately went into Hal Turner. John, Mid-North Indiana``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, more about the currently silent KYND Cypress TX, so
not QRMing KOKC, from Stephen Luce, Houston, Oct 4 on WOR io group:

``Glenn, further regarding KYND: The station's transmitter site is 40
miles west of downtown Houston, in an area that was pretty much
unaffected by Tropical Storm Imelda. And the station was on the air
for several days after the worst of the storm, but has been off for
over a week now. Other local Houston radio and TVs have been carrying
on as usual.

The big issue with KYND is the station's lack of paying clients over
the past two years, which has resulted in lengthy periods off the air,
or running a promo loop searching for new customers. This is a station
that is barely alive; it consists of a transmitter site and nothing
else. I'm amazed the owners haven't given up completely and sold the
place, though given the state of AM radio these days there may be
little serious interest in a daytime only operation. Stephen Luce,
Houston, Texas`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1560, Oct 4 at 1319 UT, quick check confirms KGOW is still
on, with Vietnamese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17850, Oct 4 at 2117, JBA carrier, not a birdie, but
nothing scheduled now, and anything overseas would probably not
propagate anyway (17550 Kuwait inaudibly aimed at us). But I seriously
suspect 17850 be the third harmonic of 5950 WRMI! Especially since I
have just heard an unlogged ham on the 18 MHz band in central Florida;
and at 2152 checking the DXmap for sporadic E blobs, there is an MUF
25 MHz over Louisiana, which is just about halfway to FL. Vaguely
recall I may have heard this rare harmonic before. At 2125, 5950
confirmed on as always with poor signal as always, S5-S6 and
undermodulated. Too bad no trace of audio on 17850 to match it.

If 5950 harmonicize 3X, how about 2X? 11900 at first sounds similar to
5950 but no match. At 2100-2130 M-F, 11900 is occupied by VOA French
via São Tomé. Harmonix tend to favor odds or evens, but if any MUF
ever permit, look for the 24h WRMI 5950 signal also on: 23800, 29750,
35700, 41650, 47600, 53550, 59500+. Seriously, anyone visiting around
Okeechobee should also look for these and other possible harmonix from
all other WRMI transmitters, which are well-suppressed.

Strange how hardly anyone else mentions sporadic E as a factor in
their SW DX logs. Maybe it`s my long experience as a VHF DXer which
makes me well aware of it. In the NTSC era, FL was probably the prime
source of channel 2-6 Es DX, like WESH-2, WPBT/WTHS-2, WEDU-3, WEAR-3,
WTVJ-4, WJXT-4, WPTV-5, WUFT-5, WDBO-6, WCTV-6, WCIX-6, all of which I
saw multiple times over the years (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

Friday, October 04 2019

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.979, Oct 3 at 1336, JBA carrier on signature
off-frequency of LRA36; hardly any reports of them elsewhere the past
week and wondered if still active almost every day (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 2002, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Oct 4 at 0307, after a summer of no reception,
JBA YL talk on Canadian Coast Guard marine weather frequency; having
misplaced link to CCG schedule, I find this worldwide one:
https://www.hfunderground.com/wiki/Maritime_Weather_Transmissions
which shows VCS Halifax NS starting 2749 at 0240; nothing now/yet on
2598-USB, the further and weaker NL channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 15565, Oct 4 at 0003, not much on 19m, but a fadey S7 signal
in Chinese here, i.e. CNR1 jammer vs VOA Chinese via Thailand;
certainly not either Radio Thailand to North in English on 15590
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370 // 15140, Oct 2 at 1942, RHC in English on both
frequencies; supposed to be 15140 only and 15370 other languages. This
follows dead air on both the other day. Something`s always wrong at
RHC. But interesting cultural item about Carmina Burana performed as a
dance after winning some award in Mexico? That I`d like to hearsee.
Soon into mandatory anti-American propaganda, how José Martí became
disillusioned with America after visiting it. But how was he to know
that in the next century, America would name a major radio and TV
service for him?! 2001 both into Arabic instead of French on 15140. By
2049 check, 15370 in Portuguese, 15140 off.

This on the BST-1 caradio; at first I did a double take when I heard
RHC English twice on the memory scan thinking I mishit the button, but
another time around, Morse readout of frequencies confirmed both. BTW,
this radio was out of commission for a while, as the antenna coax
broke; turns out it had been flexing forever out of sight as it went
into the trunk, every time it opened and closed; spliced it back
together and as good as new (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2002, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Oct 3 at 0535, RHC in Spanish instead of English, and
just barely modulated. Same situation Oct 4 at 0321 during a song,
S9+20 but JBM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 3 at 0537, surprised to hear the weakened voice of
Arnie Coro on RHC English --- is it his `Breakthru` science show? No,
despite being UT Thursday, it`s `DXers Unlimited` with ham radio
equipment topic. Hard to follow as he speaks too fastly and
indistinctly. Soon at 0540, outro as ``weekend edition of DXUL``! So
they are playing back the Sunday hour instead of Wednesday! And the
midweek should have aired the night before. Something`s always wrong
at RHC. There is a tremendously sad disparity between his ailing voice
now and the canned outro recorded years ago when he was in full voice.
Mandatory anti-American propaganda follows, `Connecting the Dots`
about the many sins of Andrew Jackson against native Americans;
certainly true but only the worst of American history may be
mentioned. What about the fate of the Taíno in Cuba?? 6100 is best of
the lot by far, S9+30 with good modulation; 6165 is JBA! 6000 is
undermodulated at S9-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Oct 3 at 1339, S9 of dead air from RHC while 15230 is
OK, not an unusual situation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13566 S9, 13633 S9+10, 13768 S9, 13835 S9, Oct 9 at 1400,
approx. centers of panoply of FM spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM at
approx. intervals of 65-68 kHz, but none detectable further out circa
13500 & 13900, not even the F# tone which accompanies program audio on
the closer ones. Unlike 13700 itself, the stronger spurs are about
equally readable in FM or AM mode. Some days these are present, other
days not at all; how does RHC manage that, where something is always
wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9620-9660, Oct 3 at 1450, RHC 9640 is still surrounded by a
buzzfield, also audible at the center along with some hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Oct 3 at 1946, RHC in Arabic, supposed to be in
French; while 15140 succeeds to be in English. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 3 at 2353, RHC is off its #1 frequency so I check
for others: also off, 11850 and its 11840/11860 spurs; and 11670.
Still on this band, 11700 in Spanish and 11950 Mesa Redonda until
2400. 13740 and 7380 also missing; 9535, 9640, 5040, 6000 still on and
the 5990 CRI relay. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15120, Oct 4 at 0001, CRI relay is dead air; 15730 RHC is
very poor but modulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA [and non]. 4055, Oct 4 at 0309, S9 to S9+10 of open
carrier, dead air from TGAV, Radio Truth/Verdad, just like WBCQ 7490.1
and WRMI 7780. At least the electric companies benefit (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 12110, Oct 3 at 2351, S5-S7 JBA talk; scheduled as VOA
Burmese via Tinang, 2330-2430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 9690, Oct 2 at 2102, REE North American frequency
is off. 11670 for Africa also continues AWOL; 12030 to ME is S9-S8 of
dead air once again --- leaving only one in service, 11940 to S
America but VP here. 9690 not a propagation problem since Greek music
OK on 9420 at 2105. Yet a sesquihour earlier at 1930, Wolfgang
Bueschel reported 9690 on, and also 12030 apparently then with
modulation too; during a silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2002, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9740, Oct 2 at 2107, W&M talking, VP and not sure of
language, then recognize English; China? No, scheduled as VOA in
French this semihour weekdays, via Woofferton. Maybe a bit of English
mixed in language lesson? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2001 monitoring: confirmed Wed Oct
2 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490.070v, fair S7-S8. I`m not upcut here but
instead automation chops off last half of ``Q`` in singing ID before
music can resolve, and starts WOR on time; this has happened for quite
a while.

Also confirmed UT Thursday Oct 3 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair.

** U S A. 9330, as of Oct 3 at 1448 and 1945 chex, still no signals
from WBCQ; in fact I think nothing since the Sept 28 AAAWWW when it
was not the 500 kW. Nor has AW twitted anything about it the past
week. Setup stalled even with techs helping from the manufacturers?
Aren`t the WLC flat-earthers paying for it getting impatient? Gotta
get this going before the world ends! Remember the target date had
been last July. Maybe more news on AAAWWW this week from 0000 UT
Saturday on 7490v et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2002, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7490.1, Oct 4 at 0310, S5-S9 of dead air from
WBCQ. 7780 WRMI and 4055 TGAV are also open carrier now; situation
contagious? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7780, Oct 4 at 0311, WRMI is S9-S8 of dead air; so
is WBCQ 7490.1 and 4055 TGAV; hey stations, wake up or turn off (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 2 at 2050, WJHR again audible on proper
frequency but JB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5072.010 and 5097.988, Oct 4 at 0322 I am still detecting
the JBA parasitic spur carriers out of WTWW-2 where music modulation
is audible only on VG S9+30 fundamental measured on 5085.002, i.e.
approx. 12.99 kHz above and below; used to be more like 12.90; Ted
adjusted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1560, Oct 4 at 0249 UT, Vietnamese song at usual good signal
level from KGOW Bellaire (Houston) TX, and // 1480 KNGO The Metroplex
but not synchronized. Checking this because earlier Oct 3, Paul Walker
posted:

``Everyone's favorite ethnic station, Viet Radio 1560 KGOW
Bellaire/Houston is completely off the air due to flooding from
Tropical Depression Imelda that has "Detrimentally affected the
transmission equipment". They are completely off the air instead of
using the separate day or night site full time like last time when the
day site got flooded``. He then clarified that KGOW had applied to FCC
today for an STA to be off the air; and someone in Houston said 1560
was off at 21 UT.

I pointed out that Imelda flooding in Houston was old news from a
sesquiweek ago, and that I was still hearing KGOW last night or this
morning.

Scott Fybush replied, ``I was in Houston in the immediate aftermath of
Imelda, from the 19th until the 22nd. KGOW was on the air every time I
checked. I didn't go out to its transmitter site(s), so I don't know
which site it was using or what the state of those sites might have
been.

(Based on my visits and conversations with the local engineers, there
was no flooding damage to any Houston broadcast sites, though I was
unable to visit KTRH 740 because the road leading to the site was
underwater. There were no signals off the air or noticeably at reduced
power while I was there.)

KGOW's sites are pretty far west, as I recall. The flooding was
predominantly east. I'm not saying KGOW didn't suffer some sort of
damage... but what it's telling the FCC doesn't match up very well
with what I saw and heard last month.``

As for KYND 1520, Stephen Luce, Houston replies Oct 3 on the WOR iog
to my previous report: ``The station has been off the air since
September 25. Operation had been highly irregular prior to that
date``. So was that because of flooding? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 0619 UT October 4

UNIDENTIFIED. 1560, Oct 4 at 0305 UT, USA Radio News concluding as QRM
to KGOW just checked in Vietnamese. That network only applies to three
1560 daytimers in the NRC AM Log, KTUI Sullivan MO, or WCNW Fairfield
OH or WFSP Kingwood WV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
