Glenn Hauser logs August 8-9, 2009

** CUBA. Surprised to hear RHC Spanish programming on 13740, Aug 9 at 1354, as it`s supposed to be a CRI-relay frequency only from 1400 in English, but usually on 10-15 minutes early with open carrier. That made it // RHC intentional frequencies 13680, 13760 and 13780, which with the mixing products on 13580 and 13880 make six // on 22m.

Around 1357, 13740 switched to CRI musical prélude. For further anomalies after 2000 when Aló, Presidente appeared on some RHC-only frequencies, see VENEZUELA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Found another talking house on 1670 kHz in Enid; August 8 around 2000 UT from a parking lot near the intersexion of Garriott and Cleveland, I got this spiel about how wonderful talking houses are, and this particular one, which has all the bedrooms on the third floor, etc. Never heard location mentioned other than in the Wordspring(?) Hills Addition, but did get a website, and soon found a match, actually 202 Tanglewood in Whispering Hills, altho nothing mentioned there about its being a radio station!

As I drove northeastward, found the signal stayed about the same, which means it was roughly at the same distance despite my motion. Ergo probably to the northwest. Yes, map finds address near the intersexion of Wheatridge and Purdue, which is roughly 3 miles north and 3 miles west of where I first heard it, or a bit more than 4 miles away. Some of these only make it out a few blox (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. One of the IBOC monsters in OKC had reverted to ordinary AM, Saturday August 8 at 1954 as I started a MW bandscan — WWLS 640, probably since they were running a silly ballgame, to do away with synch problems. I could axually hear a weak station on 630, probably KHOW Denver, as KLTT-670 Denver makes it normally on groundwave at over 700 km. 630 still had some IBOC from Plano 620. But KTOK-990-1000-1010 remained IBOC-ridden, as well as KFAQ-1160-1170-1180 Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. Further observations of WWCR 13845, which used to be 24/7 Doctor Gene Scott/Pastor Melissa Scott: Aug 8 around 1630 it was still Brother Stair, but at 1855 check, PMS was back on it. Changed some time in between.

Aug 9 at 1307, 13845 had another screaming preacher but he was with The Overcomer Ministry as // 9385 WWRB and again out of synch by about 3 seconds. At 1414 B.S. himself was on both. Rick Barton, AZ, heard him claim he was now on 13845 until 2300, but at 1700 WWCR already switched back to PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WINB, which was missing from both frequencies the morning before, audible on 9265, Aug 9 at 1245 with YL preacher, not Brother Scare (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VENEZUELA [non]. “Aló, Presidente“ had been missing for weeks, and did not check for it soon after 1400 UT this Sunday August 9; but next bandscan at the late hour of 1854 found Hugo interacting with audience on 13750 – the A,P-only channel via CUBA, along with scheduled // 11690, 12010, 13680 and 17750. 11690 and 12010 were an echo apart from 1750; 11690 had the usual RTTY QRM; 13680 was just barely audible and weaker than BBCWS UK on the side from 13675.

At 1918, still going on 13750, altho regular separate daily hour of RNV CI was also in progress on 15290. At 1920 found RHC`s 13760 on the air now and instead of own programming also // 13750 an echo apart. At 2000, 13750 still going with A,P, along with 13760, but now both muscled aside by Sportugal on 13755 which had just moved down from 15560. At 2003, when RHC is supposed to be resuming its own schedule in other languages, as Hugo briefly broke into song, found more // to the A,P service on 11760, 11770 and 11800. I wonder if RHC don`t have enough different program feed channels available; or the switching is just too complex and unpredictable to keep everything straight.

Next check at 2056, found singing on 13750 // 11760, 11770, 11800, 12010 with singing, not audible on 11690 or 13680. At 2058 also on // 17750 talking about Habana, so apparently in meantime had morphed back into RHC-produced programming. 17750 also had become rather distorted, but not as bad as 11800. At 2059 they all went into RHC IS and ID. At 2100 on 13750 and 17750 introducing a cultural fill program from the RHC archives, about Ernesto Lecuona, playing Siboney. At 2102, found that 12010 and 17750 had gone off, and 17660 had come on, the latter being the frequency supposed to be in English at 2030-2130, but still Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CUBA

UNIDENTIFIED. On a caradio bandscan August 8 at 1956 UT could hear a SAH of 4 Hz on 1090 kHz, an otherwise vacant daytime frequency here bearing very weak carriers. There are three possibilities: KAAY 50 kW Little Rock AR, which on non-direxional daytime supposedly has a radius out to here, but not really due to poor conductivity; KVOP Plainview TX in the Panhandle with 5 kW and a null toward KAAY, not much usward either; and KEXS Excelsior Springs MO (near KC), only 1 kW but non-direxional.
