Glenn Hauser logs December 22, 2012

** MOROCCO [and non]. 9579, Dec 22 at 0635, weak het with 9580, so apparently both Africa No. One, GABON, and Médi Un, are on with the usual clash. Gabon had been missing at various previous chex. Aoki and HFCC show the only other station on 9580 during this hour is Lhasa, Tibet, but I don`t recall ever seeing it reported (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 21600, Dec 22 at 1540, KBC Radio special, tnx to reminder from Larry Cunningham. VG signal, stronger than Spain 21610 or WHRI 21630. But there is some regular fading, hinting at a SAH, but no other modulation. Site surely Wertachtal, GERMANY, but are they running two transmitters instead of one? Could and/or be Nauen.

Country music, outro as Allison Krauss (sp?), “country music classic, for truckers all over the world“; then “Six Days on the Road“. Also very poor on // 15470, and JBA carrier on 9835, the two other frequencies listed. Apparently live DJs with American accents remark, “Trucker radio on KBC, not KFC,“ expecting to be asked back.

1544 ad with British accent for, sounds like, until spelt as, then KBC Radio singing ID; 1545 promo by Bob for his `On the Road` show at 10-noon CET weekdays, for Belgian truckers; on “shortwave AM 60-95,“ plus E- and P-mail addresses. 1548 another song, and more; 1557 wrapping up till tomorrow and off at 1559*.

I then check the website and find this from the KBC Forum dated way back on Nov 16, 2012:

“December 2012: The Mighty KBC Blasting Out Of Your Tranny!! The extra frequencies and transmitters for 22, 23, 25 and 26 December are:

EU (German time) UT +1
9835 kHz, 1500-1600 UT, Non Directional, 125 kW

USA (East Coast time) UT -5
21600 kHz, 1500-1600 UT, 300°, 250 kW

Asia (Vietnam time) UT +7 / Australia (Sydney time) UT +11
15470 kHz, 1500-1600 UT, 75°, 250 kW

And on 22, 23 December we also have our 6095 transmitter on the air as well with 100 kW 0900–1600 UT.

During weekdays we also have The Mighty 6095 on the air between 0900–1100 UT with 100 kW.

And on December 23 we also use 9450 kHz from Bulgaria beamed to the USA, Canada and South America between 0000–0200 with 100 kW“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15225, Dec 22 at 1443, open carrier; 1452 recheck now somewhat undermodulating in Arabic, 1500 mentions Saudi, theme music.
HFCC shows Riyadh starting at 1500, 500 kW, 295 degrees, but Aoki says the Call of Islam service starts at 1450 (I was not hearing Qur`an). KTWR Guam supposedly is also on 15225 with English at 1400-1523/1535, but no sign of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1648 monitoring: confirmed on webcast of Area 51, UT Saturday Dec 22 at 0230, and presumably also on WBCQ 5110v-CUSB. Next: UT Sunday 0500 on WTWW-1 5830; Sunday 0900, 1630, Monday 0530, Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1310, Dec 22 at 1357 UT, “Puede Ser“ romantic sounding song, but I think it`s gospel; 1400 brief announcement I can`t copy and into another Spanish song. Still suspect it`s KKNS in Corrales NM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
