Glenn Hauser logs April 11, 2012

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 15190, April 11 at 1853, R. Africa, with YL gospel huxter, and CCI making a SAH — likely Philippines which is also on 15190 at 1730-1930, but not usually audible here. Still the same at 1901. By next check 1953, guess who? Tony Alámo! The arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned for 175 years child molester. It`s been a while since we`ve heard him on SW, dropped even by WWCR, but only once he was convicted. I believe he was still on R. Africa when it went silent over a year ago. Other listeners have also been reporting him again on this station at other times.

We remember his low-key ramblings, belying his monstrosity. Soon became clear his talk was in the form of a prayer, mentioning residing in Valencia near Los Angeles, and then his favorite subject, reminding Him that of course it`s wrong to have sexual relations with children — unless you marry them! So says the Bible. Amens by some YL-sounding psychophants/wives.

1958 into a solo hymn, and holding its own against YFR/Ascension 15195 ACI from just before *2000. At 2002 Alamo continues, unknown for how long as that was all I could take, tho reception today unfortunately attained R5 completely readable level. Presumably they dredge up old recordings to perpetuate him, not dead yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUIANA FRENCH. 17875, April 11 at 2005, TDP DRM today is very strong, and I can hear the DRM noise gradually diminishing out to 25, maybe 30 kHz above and below, impeded only by AM from REE COSTA RICA 17850 which was still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550, April 11 at 1854-1904 I was getting a station here, see unID, and SAH traces of another, despite none being listed; I was pre-checking for R. Kuwait`s service which has been showing up on good days lately after 2000. Still nothing then, but recheck at 2003, now it`s come on a bit late, inbooming VG signal, better than English on 15540. Arabic talk sounds reflective, with music background; could be devotional. Mentioned kitab = book, perhaps the only book that matters. This is the 350-degree broadcast especially for us in C & W North America. I wonder how many Kuwaitis around here know about it, let alone Arabic-speaking American SWLs in general?

15540, by 1958, R. Kuwait English service (“Arabic“ per HFCC mis-registrations), has improved to very good level with hard rap, as appropriate for anyone speaking English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 15115-15120-15125, April 11 at 1852, VON DRM is already running, but always off before 2000. From IBB monitoring, Ivo Ivanov says the DRM switch from the analog English broadcast starting at 1800 is now at 1830. Creeping DRM! See SPAIN for QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. Open AM carrier from REE Noblejas 15110 already on at 1852, soon to be followed by their mind-numbing IS; at 1901 check during talk programming, this is putting out a spur on about 15119.5, readable thru the QRDRM from NIGERIA, q.v.! And at a 9.5 kHz multiple about 15129, matched on the low side by 15100.5 and 15091 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1612: produced in time for first SW airing on WRMI 9955, UT Thursday April 12 at 0330; good luck vs jamming. WRMI repeats are Sat 0800, 1500, 1730, Sun 0800, 1530, 1730, Mon 0500, 1130.

Also: Thursday 2100 on WTWW 9479; UT Friday 0330v on WWRB 5050; UT Saturday 0100v-0135v start on WBCQ Area 51 5110v-CUSB/LSB; UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW 5755 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17550, April 11 at 1854, good signal with religious-sounding guitar music (or was it harp?), 1856 talk in tonal African language, hum. Fast SAH of approx. 12 Hz. Talk continued thru ToH 1900, tho there may have been an edit, nothing resembling an ID and the only word recognized was at 1857, “Geneva“.

Away from the computer noise on the porch, figured I`d uplook this easily later and quit listening at 1904. Wrong. Let alone two stations, not even one is listed on 17550 anywhere near 1900, before or after, in HFCC, EiBi or Aoki. Next try at 1952, it was gone. Maybe the SAH had been from Kuwait, ahead of their sign-on around 2000? Unlikely, considering how strong it was then, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
