Glenn Hauser logs January 23-24, 2014

** CUBA. 15482, Jan 24 at 1401, RHC sounder stands out and then distorted Spanish; apparent spur from very strong 15340, and also a trace on 15198, i.e. 142 kHz above and below. 15482 is also hetting Chinese on 15480, which is AWR via Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [non]. 15190, Jan 23 at 1956 check, no signal from R. Africa, Bata, shortly before R. Africa, Okeechobee comes up on 15190. Bata has been successfully staying off the 15190 air after (and before) 2000 this year, so please don`t believe outdated listings and assume you have EqG direct in the 20-23 period if you hear R. Africa programming: it`s WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 3325, Jan 24 at 1352, poor carrier, trace of modulation, presumably RRI Palangkaraya rather than PNG; and very poor carrier on 3345, presumably RRI Kendari. Atsunori Ishida shows both are quite active lately, with 3325 running until shortly after 1700*, and 3345 until 1500* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, Jan 24 at 1339, poor signal from Sea Breeze, JSR JAPAN, but I can tell it`s again in English this Friday with brief YL news headlines attributed to Daily NK, alternating with typical stingers; and also constant het on hi side from Myanmar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1270, Jan 23 at 2002 UT during music, I get around to comparing KTUZ Claremore-Tulsa to its new parent, KTUZ-FM 106.7 OKC: 1270 is running a couple Spanish words behind, about right for a satellite-feed delay. You`d think AM could pull a direct off-the-air feed from FM? Not with a 106.9 Muskogee-Tulsa station in the way (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS [and non]. 9545, Jan 24 at 0637 very pleased to hear some “island music“, from SIBC. Previously have heard the carrier here, probably open after-hours, but first time with some audio. Fair signal with deep fades; 0646 YL announcement; then canned announcements, in Pidgin? Maybe ads; more music, 0655 another announcement but it`s getting weaker; 0657 music with a bass beat past ToH 0700, no pause or timesignal; marred by occasional rapid pulses, OTHR? 0701:30 finally YL announcement but very poor and worsening, just in time for my shuteye. First I check 9660 at 0703 and find R. Australia, 10 kW Brandon not much better. Then reawake at 1355, a very weak carrier is detectable on 9545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9370, Jan 23 at 1954-2119+, WWRB has silenced Brother Scare, totally dead air for at least a sesquihour, interrupted only for automatic IDs at 2000 & 2100 hourtops. Still no BS Jan 24 at 1439, but now fading up more big band music fill. Apparently WWRB`s microwave access to internet has failed, also affecting other programming such as WORLD OF RADIO, q.v.

Meanwhile, I find BS still running on his redundant other frequencies; Jan 23 at 1954 on 9930, 9955 & 9980, tho not synchronized, he`s wondering why he`s still alive at age 80? God`s will of course, as no one else can properly spew prophecy. We wonder too what will happen when he passes, just in case the World hasn`t really ended first “in your lifetime“. Much of his programming already consists of extremely repetitive recordings, so that could go on and on for eternity via shortwave, if his Ministry survive and keep raking in the dough: Another dead preacher refusing to go away, like PPP and DGS. OTOH, R.G. is *so* charismatic, that it`s hard to imagine any real successor as The Last Day Prophet of God, and certainly none is in sight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15520, Jan 24 at 1405, V. of Tibet, poor signal via MADAGASCAR, which I was not hearing by 1401; must have come on late. No jamming audible, but anticipating QSY jump to 15515, I tune another receiver with BFO to 15516, and hear that cut on at *1406:06. Now there is no signal detectable on 15520, the jammer not propagating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17655, Jan 24 at 1407, good steady open carrier, off in less than a minute: no doubt habitual Greenville test hours before scheduled VOA transmission in Portuguese at 1700-1800 on same. (Per Aoki, Fridays only there`s more at 1630-1700 via Vatican; and Mon-Fri there`s even more at 1800-1830 via Botswana)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1705 monitoring: confirmed Thursday Jan 23 from 2201 on WTWW-1, 9475. Not confirmed at next chance, UT Friday Jan 24 at 0430 on WWRB 3195: instead, Dave cuts off preacher at 0430 to make an announcement but I can`t copy it with computer noise on, and had already found the WWRB stream wasn`t working. Evidently no internet into or outof WWRB, so rest of hour from 0431 filled with big-band music. See also USA: WWRB entry

Next WORs: Saturday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB. I read that they recently repaired their rotor and reached power of 1000 watts PEP from Göhren, Germany.

Saturday  2130 on WRMI 7730? Ran for two weeks then, but not last week
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495: has run for three weeks so far
UT Sunday 0030 on WTWW 5085
UT Sunday 0501 on WTWW 5830
UT Monday 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Tuesday   1200 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on HLR 7265-CUSB

** U S A. 9370, Jan 23 at 1954, open carrier dead air from WWRB instead of Brother Scare; whilst otherwise occupied, I leave 9370 on the YB-400 to enjoy the silence, interrupted only by Dave`s legal ID at 2000 and again at 2100; finally tune out at 2119 when it`s still dead air. Evidently WWRB has lost internet contact with the outside world. This also prevented WORLD OF RADIO from playing at its only scheduled WWRB time, UT Friday Jan 24 at 0430 on 3195, instead big band music. Back to 9370: Jan 24 at 1439, still no TOM, but BB music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Channel A2 NTSC, usual check for sporadic E TVDX finds traces of video fading in and out, Jan 24 at 1458 for next 10 minutes or so, and more circa 1618; antenna parked south and don`t want to rotate it in frigid temps. 6-meter maps show no activity at all, but the sporadic-E clouds map
shows lots of them in the 20 and 30 MHz MUFs around eastern US, bunched in the northeast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1630 UT January 24
