Glenn Hauser logs August 31-September 1, 2012

** BANGLADESH [non]. 15505, Sept 1 at 1359-1404, no sign of BB today for usual Urdu service; 15105 had a very weak hum, could be there, or BBC Ascension. Plenty of other Eurasian signals were in on 19m, e.g. 15510, at 1359 VOR bells IS which should have been concluding Afghan service via Samara, before VOA Kurdish takes over via Wertachtal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 1, before 1300:
12670, good-very good at 1256
13850, good at 1255
13920, fair at 1255
14700, very good at 1255 with flutter
15555, very good at 1252 with flutter
16600, fair at 1253
16920, very good at 1253 with flutter
17250, poor-fair at 1253
17450, very good at 1254, none in the 18s

** COLOMBIA. 14950+, Sept 1 at 0143, Salem Stereo, JBA carrier, but at 0231 it`s improved to very poor, quoting a versículo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 17750, Aug 31 at 2055, good music from RHC and super signal, allegedly aimed at Europe instead of CNAm. Should add this to my list of musical outlets for afternoon napping — but only during breaks from relentless propaganda. Nothing in English, but unfortunately I understand Spanish, Portuguese and French.

15340, RHC off the air Sept 1 at 1400, allowing HCJB Australia to be unimpeded; maybe so this Saturday for entire 13-15 transmission. HCJB`s language at 1400-1430 daily is Urdu; as if Pakistan doesn`t have enough problems, it must be Christianized (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, Sept 1 at 1248, after reactivation yesterday, VOI is on again today with pop music; and already in English at 1257 announcing the three imaginary frequencies; song lasts until 1302, then reopening English with IDs modified to “RRI Voice of Indonesia“, again claims to be on 15150, 9525, 11785 or ondemand; program summary. 1303.6 news starts. Modulation sounds OK but it is lo, and some hum; however, no IADs at all heard! 1310 ID as above again, more news. Fair and fluttery signal.

Atsunori Ishida`s website now shows 9526:
Aug 31 *0952-1459* 0952 EE  1102 CC  1202 JJ  1302 EE  1402 IN
       *1545-1623* / *1700-1810- (no signal at 1855)
        1545 CC  1602 AA  1702 SS  1802 GG.
Sep 01  0947c/on- 1004 EE  1100 EE  1200 EE  1302 EE  1420 IN  1502 CC 
Leonardo Santiago, Venezuela was also listening today when there was a seemingly live show in English at 1104-1114+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MAURITANIA. 7245, Sept 1 at 0409, IGIM is already on and chanting, also at 0521 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, Sept 1 at 1159 UT, XETNT, Radio 65 ID just as I tune in; a regular from Los Mochis, Sinaloa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 660, Sept 1 at 1205 UT, kept talking about carnitas, and Mercado Morelos. While there are such markets all over Mexico, a previous log of Oct 5 last year with more details correlated that with:
660 XEACB Radio 660, La Tremenda Cd. Delicias, Chih. 3,000 1,000
However, current Cantú has amended this to:
660 XEACB La Lupe + FM 98.9 Cd. Delicias, Chih. 3,000 1,000

** MEXICO. 680, Sept 1 at 1206 UT, “Noticias en Punto“ is all I get, but searching on that + 680 leads to (beware of autolaunching audio)
which does have such a newscast at 6-8 am, and another at 1-2 pm MDT, so it is per Cantú:
680 XEORO La Mera Jefa + FM 93.7 Guasave, Sinaloa 1,000 500

** MEXICO. 720, Sept 1 at 0226 UT I am trying for KDWN Las Vegas NV, as suggested by Kaz just before local sunset pattern change. I get a good null on WGN, but no KDWN, just Spanish music, and at 0230 fades up for full super-hype ID from XEDE, Saltillo, Coahuila, where it`s 31 degrees at 9:30. Not quite collinear with WGN, so if I try to null XEDE I get WGN again, no KDWN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 740, Sept 1 at 1158, I am hearing some mariachi music when KRMG Tulsa is nulled, 1159 rewarded by ID for a 25 kW FM en Los Mochis, Sinaloa, and also 740. Cantú shows:
740 XECW Stereo Vida + FM 96.5 Los Mochis, Sin. 5,000 1,000

A new one here; KRMG 25 kW night pattern has a deep null at 278 degrees, close to us, tho we can always hear it; major night lobes are 245 and 97 degrees. KRMG daytime 50 kW begins at 1200 UT in September, ex-1145 in August (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 980, Sept 1 at 1202 UT, live announcer from La Voz de la Ciudad del Cobre (Copper City), greeting a new day and a new month, informal slogan “canal 98“, mentions IMER, 5:03 am, 21 grados, all over music bed. Cantú:
980 XEFQ La Voz de la Cd. del Cobre Cananea, Sonora 2,500 500

** NIGERIA. 15120, Sept 1 at 0504, VON news in English, good modulation, flutter, and fading down later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 780, Sept 1 at 0505 UT, steady open carrier in WBBM OTR null, i.e. groundwave from KSPI Stillwater, left their 250-watt daytime-only transmitter on all night again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1520, Sept 1 at 1220 UT, KOKC with YL host interviewing another YL on phone, about the necessity to protect oneself from all the electromagnetic energy surrounding us, with “harmonizers“ and other gadgets to prevent cellular/DNA damage. Seems locally originated; and sounds like a scam; hostess buys into it; is this really an infomercial? KOKC program schedule at
shows 6-9 am Saturday is `Third Opinion`. KOKC 50 kW clear-channel ought to be QRM-free, but some skywave from the east is still audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 9930, Sept 1 at 1244, undermodulated English audio is also breaking up as T8WH transitions from one gospel huxter to another at 1245. It`s a long way from South Bend (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3205, 3260, 3325, Sept 1 at 1155 were the best NBC carriers, each with some modulation, but too much noise. Of course, 3325 could also be Indonesia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120, Sept 1 at 0408 check, no signal from R. Hargeisa, just lots of CW from NAmhams. It`s now been widely heard from NZ and Japan to India to Egypt and Europe on the just-reactivated evening transmission between 1500 and 1830 or 1900. Hoping they`ll add a morning broadcast which in the UT+3 zone could reasonably start as early as 0300 or even 0200; that would propagate to North America, but west-coasters might get it by longpath at 1500. Look for the intruder-watchers to do their utmost to get it out of the hamband. 7530 would be nice, like used previously (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [non]. 17850, Friday Aug 31 at 2055, REE COSTA RICA relay is still on with sports talk, extended past usual 2000* on weekdays, but off after 2100. No spiky spur field noted lately, hope fixed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 17565, Sept 1 at 1406, presumed Tibetan from V. of Tibet via MADAGASCAR is in the clear, no jamming; at the moment, Firedrake is very poor on 17560, so this mouse has escaped the cat. On August 28, Leonardo Santiago in Venezuela found VOT jumping back and forth from 17560 to 17570 during this semihour to evade the jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1632 monitoring: confirmed from 0130 UT Saturday Sept 1 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB, and also on webcast. Next on WRMI: Sat 1730, Sun 0800, 1530, 1730, Mon 0500, 1130. On WTWW 5755: UT Sun 0400. On WRN via SiriusXM 120: Sat & Sun 1730, Sun 0830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Sept 1 at 1256, religion in Russian; seems WTWW-3 is on the air this early only on Saturdays, or maybe Sundays too, not weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Did anyone notice whether WRNO 7506.4 was disrupted by Isaac? I never got around to checking it, since even if on, there`s no way they would have anything pertinent out of the studios in Fort Worth, unlike the unrelated WRNO-FM. Maybe I`ll remember to see if it is on the air tonight. Normal hours are 01-04 UT, often unmodulated, undermodulated, or distorted (Glenn Hauser, August 31, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Indeed it was off the air Friday evening at 0143 check UT Saturday Sept 1. Perhaps someone who can log in to Facebook will glean something about the situation:

Rich Lewis says Entergy-New Orleans is repairing powerlines in the Marrero area, so maybe it`s just waiting on the juice. What, no backup generator for this vital mission? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
