Glenn Hauser logs January 22-23, 2014

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-AM, Jan 23 at 0059, pirate music at poor level with SSB ACI; 0108 still QRM but now it`s CCI on same frequency, probably in SSB mode, while pirate has two guys talking about ordering T-shirts, laughing.

Several others heard the same about T-shirts, QRM from “peskies“ and IDed it as Radio Free Whatever:,15053.0.html

** OKLAHOMA. Brad Ferguson, GM of Classical KCSC-FM 90.1 Edmond/OKC, replied to my inquiry Jan 22: “ Hi Glen[n], Our main antenna suffered a bad lightning strike at some point, we don’t know when, but it only manifested itself two weeks ago when we could not get the ERP above 15%. In the meantime a crew has taken down the top three bays for repair and put up a temporary at 300 feet. The temporary itself shorted out Monday and Hal replaced it with a one-bay yesterday afternoon. The relentless wind has kept progress slow as the repair was supposed to be finished a week ago“

It was back on again by 2100 UT Jan 22, and seems to have stayed on at full strength, which is still not enough to provide full quieting, especially in stereo. Mid-day temp Jan 23 in OKC area is in the low single-digits F! with windchills below zero (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Jan 23 at 0057, R. Chaski carrier with some modulation audible amid the splash from 5990 CRI CUBA for another minute or two, and also unusually some intruder SSB QRM on the hi side. Cutoff comes at 0104:19.5* which is 11.5 seconds later than last check 48 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1705 monitoring: ready for first airing UT Thursday Jan 23 at 0430 on WRMI 9955: very good signal this time, tho presumably still on the SSE antenna, well atop the jamming. Hope as spring approaches the MUF will be holding up better this late in the night. Preceded by a new canned ID from same host as WOR, who says,

“Standard disclaimer. Glenn Hauser in Enid, Oklahoma, identifying, Radio Miami International, WRMI, Okeechobee, Florida, USA, and Send your comments and reception reports to or to WRMI, P.O. Box 52-68-52, Miami, Florida, 33152, USA.“

He has also recorded IDs in French, Portuguese and Spanish, as yet unheard on the air.

WOR 1705 also confirmed on next airing, Thursday Jan 23 at 1330:30 on 9955, and this too is preceded by the gh ID at 1330:00, ironically causing the last semiminute of the 29-minute WOR to be chopped off at 1359 for WRMI Scoreboard, before quick switch from the SSE to the NW antenna at 1400. Even so, WOR reception is sufficient atop the jamming. Next:

Thursday 2201 on WTWW-1 9475
UT Friday 0426v on WWRB 3195
Saturday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Saturday 2130 on WRMI 7730? Was for two weeks, but not last week
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495: has been for three weeks now
UT Sunday 0030 on WTWW-2 5085
UT Sunday 0501 on WTWW-1 5830
UT Monday 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB

** U S A. 9495, UT Thu Jan 23 at 0052 check, this alternate RMI program frequency now is again in Spanish about Venezuela, presumably `Acontecer Venezolano`, which is the only SW program about that country, lacking anything from RNV`s long-delayed SW site itself, and thus without supervision by The Bolivarian Revolution. Described thus on the WRMI programing page,

Acontecer Venezolano — Productor: José Torrellas

“Programa de opinión, actual, versátil. Conducido y producido por José Torrellas, quien con sus diálogos busca de una manera personal, dinámica y objetiva informar en temas de interés político, económico, deportivo, etc. con lo que esté aconteciendo en el país. A través de este programa, conozca más sobre Venezuela. Una linda patria con deseos de continuar en libertad y democracia, como debe ser.“

Perhaps we should start filing this like a clandestine as VENEZUELA [non]. Sufficient signal, so far no jamming on 9495, except increasing bleed from 9490 as 0100 approaches (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1901 UT January 23
