Glenn Hauser logs December 20-21, 2012

** CUBA. 11760, Dec 20 at 2136, RHC is still on in French, supposed to end at 2130, but off at next check 2145; must have been running late.

11880, Dec 20 at 2136, RHC Portuguese. If NHK Portuguese via GUIANA FRENCH is still there, I can`t detect it underneath; nor anywhere else on the 25m band in case they have moved as they need to in the face of bullying from Arnie Coro.

6000, Dec 21 at 0014, RHC is starting the `Sonido Cubano` music fill show, also on 6060, 6120, 9640, echoing on 11760, 11840. 6000 and 9640 are reserved for the separate `Mesa Redonda` TV soundtrack at 00-01 when there is one, but not tonight.

6165, Dec 21 at 0212, RHC English is back on the air tonight, with an Arnie Coro report, // 6000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUIANA FRENCH. Never mind my recent remark about the 9490 transmitter carrying R. República being spur-free. Sometimes it is, but spurs are back tonight, Dec 21 at 0023 check, squeals at multiples of about 7 kHz above and below, circa 9476, 9483, 9497, 9504 — the same displacements as I was hearing the night before surrounding the 11740 English relay of R. Japan after 0500; no coincidence.

At 0218 Dec 21, I also look for the different set of spurs which have long infested the 5960 relay of R. Japan in Japanese at 02-04: yes, they are still there, blobs circa 5844, 5926, 5994 and 6076, i.e. plus and minus 34 and 116 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13570, Dec 20 at 2137, WINB is just barely modulated, which is helpful since the YL gospel huxter appears to be screaming; the CODAR QRM is as loud as she is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1648 monitoring: oh oh, 9479 WTWW is off the air Dec 20 at 2139, and so are the other two WTWW frequencies, 9905 and 12105. (I notice that other Tennessean WWRB is also missing from 9370 and if on 3185 instead that is inaudible this early; but all four WWCR transmitters are still on, 6875, 9350, 9980, 13845.)

Whew, at 2150, 9479 is back on with PPP, and WORLD OF RADIO 1648 starts at 2200. New 9905 ex-9990 is also on with Brother Scare. But at next check 2214, 9479 is off again, and so is the rest of WORLD OF RADIO, still off at 2245; however, 9905 is still on with open carrier at 2214, and by 2227 BS is back. Sometime around 0015 UT Dec 21, I notice that 5830 has resumed, the night counterpart of 9479; and 5085 is also on, the night side of 9905.

Let us hope for better luck during the next airing of WORLD OF RADIO, UT Friday Dec 21 at 0430v on WWRB 3195 and 5050 — both of them confirmed on the air at 0217.

After that try 5110v-CUSB, for WOR on Area 51 via WBCQ, UT Saturday Dec 22 at 0230v – last week did not start until 0255.

On WRMI 9955: Sat 0900, 1600, 1830, Sun 0900, 1630, Mon 0530, Tue 1200
On HLR: Sat 0630 on 7265, 1630 on 6190, plus special holiday airings
On WRN via SiriusXM 120: Sat 1830 UT.

Since WORLD OF RADIO is primarily about the dynamic medium of international shortwave, between the AM and FM bands, it should be listened to on SW if at all possible. If not, there are many webcasts scheduled (including the ones simulcast on SW), via
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
and one may even hear it on demand, via
http://www.worldofradio.com/audiomid.html
or even subscribe to the podcast via WRN:
