Glenn Hauser logs July 3, 2014

** AUSTRALIA. 13630, July 3 at 0524, open carrier/dead air from what had been a VG RA frequency. Still OC/DA at several chex past 0600 until I quit at 0618. 15300 > 15240 > 15415 were however nominal. What`s going on at Shepparton? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)** BRAZIL. 5990+, July 3 at 0117, RNA active again on extra frequency, and noticeably on hi side compared to WWV, RHC, CRI, etc. (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 13710, July 3 at 1408, raucous music with drumming (not Firedrake) sounds like a loop repeating without any pauses every 7-8 seconds! At this hour it`s either AIR GOS or CRI English which usually gets the better of AIR, but certainly not the programming CRI would be running near hourtop. 1413 a bit of talk CCI. 1417 the music tempo slows and begins to vary a bit; 1420 into English talk mentioning New Delhi. So it is AIR, which I could not // to 9690, too little signal if any vs hi noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1000, July 3 at 0542 UT, Mexican music looping WSW, and dominating vs dead air from KTOK OKC at right angle. No doubt XEFV Juárez which I can often hear even when KTOK modulates. 0600 UT no ID but segué from non-anthem to orchestral “Mexicanos, al Grito de Guerra“, indicating it`s midnight in the UT -6 zone. Then at 0602 UT, full ID for “XEFV La Rancherita“ with street address (studio/business no doubt, never transmitter site) in Ciudad Juárez. Meanwhile also getting weaker XEOY; see separate log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1000, July 3 at 0600 UT, slow music from SSW, vs jaunty Mexican NA from WSW Juárez XEFV, both facilitated by dead air from KTOK OKC, and 0601 UT “somos Radio Mil“ ID, from XEOY, but remaining weaker than Juárez. BTW, // 6010 XEOI has been off the air again for 3 or 4 months lacking a replacement tube (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA 590 — no KXSP but probably XEPH

** MEXICO. 1140, July 3 at 0607 UT, XEMR, Radio Esperanza also with slogan “Manantial de Música“, ID with street address in Monterrey, into show “Jesús Pronto Volverá“ — yeah, right; they`ve been saying that for 2 kiloyears. Is the dominant nite signal here on 1140 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. On the lookout for sporadic E, antenna south, from 1430 UT or so July 3 until it breaks out despite nothing much on G7IZU 6m map:

1512 on 2, fade in algo from south

1520 on 2, Spanish promo “en el siete“, so Azteca-7 net, most likely XHTAU Tampico; 1525 menacing robomonster animation, net-7 bug in UR

1550 on 2, animated ID for Azteca

1551 on 4, other animation from Televisa net-5, with bug in LR

1557 on 4, novela with Televisa net-2 star bug in LR, unID bug in LL; also 20 kHz offset CCI. At 1558 one of them supers across top of screen in big bright letters, XELN-TV4, which is 100 kW in Torreón, Coahuila, and which lists as with Televisa-5, and zero-offset, which if correct could not produce fine 20-kHz beat bars with anything else

1558 on 2, Aztecarioca studio show handling soccer ball, pre-game?

1559 on 4, Gala swirl bug in upper left, unusual, during novela. Only one listed in is XHGK-TV, 100 kW in Tapachula, Chiapas, but I am not convinced. But Bill Hepburn`s updated ch 4 map,
shows XELN-TV as Gala, rather than the number 9, and Chiapas remains cut off the map, too far south — one more inch would cover all of Mexico1612 on 3, algo, studio soccer; unID bug in UR

1616 on 3, Pingüinos de Madagascar animation, net-5 LR, so starting earlier than 11:30 am today

1641 on 5, exercising, Televisa net-2 star bug LR

1642 on 6, algo, studio talk

(I have also been monitoring 87.75, 88.1 and 88.3, but no MUF into FM)

1705 on 5, Pingüinos from Televisa 5

1710 onwards, opening diminishes, just in time for lunch

1748 on 2, still weak CCI and at times also on 3

1758 on 3, old-style movie credits, gunshots, must be western, seems opening rather than closing; bug in UR I can`t make out.

1802 on 4, graphic reading BANCO CENTRAL —–; 1804 financial graph

1805 on 3, western is in again, hero in white hat but unseems El Llanero Solitario; unknown bug in UR, too close to corner

1810 on 3, Televisa-5 but LR, animalation dubbed into Spanish, surely originally speaking English

1815 on 3, better view of them, a bitch and a dog — rather like Lady & the Tramp? Haven`t seen it in sesquidecades. No, dog is more wolfy than woofy, and so is she. Has rodramatic music score; 1817 Canal 5 promo, CCI

1818 on 4, still financial discussion audio at least; 1821, up to color briefly, host welcomes YL to “her“ studio

1818 on 5, MUF back up to here weakly with algo ads

1831 on 3, wolves vs bears in feature-animation, // on 2, but less CCI on 3; definitely net-5 bug in LR, but this does *not* match their national schedule:
with a series of half-hour cartoon showsWeak opening still going on ch 2 and 3 as I wrap up this report at 1845 UT July 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1000, July 3 at 0542 past 0600 UT, KTOK OKC is open carrier/dead air. Is no one paying attention at Clear Channel? Fine with me as that facilitates hearing two XEs — see MEXICO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, July 3 at 1406 UT, KOSU news had an item about this, which I then searched out:

‘Cherokee Voices, Cherokee Sounds’ marks ten year anniversary in Oklahoma — 4:33 PM, Jul 2, 2014

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) — The only radio program in Oklahoma to air in the Cherokee language is marking its 10-year anniversary

“Cherokee Voices, Cherokee Sounds” is an hour-long program in both the Cherokee and English languages and includes Cherokee music, interviews with elder speakers and information about tribal community news.

It debuted in 2004 and continues to expose the Cherokee language and culture to people around the world.

The radio program airs on five stations within the Cherokee Nation’s tribal jurisdiction and can be heard on
(KJRH Tulsa news via DXLD)
Viz., along with access to a large archive of 600+ shows:

The “Cherokee Voices, Cherokee Sounds” radio show, with host Dennis Sixkiller, includes music in the Cherokee language, interviews with Cherokee elders and information on programs that the Cherokee Nation has to offer, as well as the latest Cherokee Nation community news.

“Cherokee Voices, Cherokee Sounds” radio show currently airs in the Tahlequah area on Lakes Country 102.1 FM on Sundays from 8 a.m. until 9 a.m. and on Classic Country KTLQ 1350 AM from 12 p.m. until 1 p.m. and Wednesdays from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. In the Claremore area, the show airs on the Rogers State University radio station, KRSC – 91.3 FM, Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. until 1 p.m. The show also airs on Siloam Springs AR, station KUOA – 1290 AM, on Sundays from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. (via DXLD) CDT = UT -5

** PERU. 5980, July 3 at 0115-0115:57.5*, R. Chaski carrier is still detectable despite the high local noise level which is worse on the higher bands, cutoff six seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non?]. 7355, July 3 at 0520, BBCWS in English, very poor but detectable unlike previous nights. Not the bigsig we used to get from Ascension, so major beam change? Power reduxion? Bad propagation despite equatorial advantage? Most likely it`s a totally different site, now unfavorable for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9885, July 3 at 0015, open carrier again, surely Greenville-B in another test way prior to 0600 French broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESTS)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1728 monitoring: confirmed first two airings, on WRMI 9955, UT Thursday July 3 at 0330 & 1230. Next:

Thu 2100 on WBCQ-1, 7490v

Sat 2330 on WTWW-2, 9930 (? But missing last two weeks)

** U S A. 570, July 3 at 0528 UT, here`s Jim Bohannon where unheard previously, so added another station? Suspect KGRT Las Cruces NM, atop “RR“ QRM from Cuba, and maybe KLIF Dallas. Station finder at has been updated to include KTRS 550 St Louis which I discovered last week, but NO listing for 570s in NM, TX or SD. still calls itself “Classic Country“, with no sign of Jimbo there and lacks a plain old program schedule. Break at 0529-0532 UT is filled with PSAs instead of ads, including one promo/ID mentioning 570 and 93.3 FM, but there is no 93.3 anywhere near Las Cruces. (KGRT is often audible at night despite listed 155 watt power vs 5000 watts day).Second choice is KLIF in Dallas, and by golly they do have an FM on 93.3, per WTFDA DB: “KLIF-FM 93.3 HALTOM CITY TX 50.0 120.0 I 93 TODAY’S HIT MUSIC CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO“
Altho presumably not // talk on 570? Maybe an HD sub duplicates 570.

Finally brought up KLIF program schedule
which does now show Jim Bohannon UT Tue-Sat 0400-0700, Sat extended to 1000 UT. That`s some balance for far-right wackos Laura Ingraham and Dennis Miller occupying daytime 14-20 UT. Congrats to JimBo for adding another major market this week! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)** U S A [non]. 590, July 3 at 0534 UT, no sign of KXSP Omaha NE, just continuous Mexican music segués, probably tropical XEPH in the DF. Hard to believe KXSP is even on the air with its 5 kW U1 non-direxional normally dominating; and 610 KCSP is inbooming as usual. If there`s an auroral zone cutoff, it`s between Omaha and Kansas City. But 1180 sports is in well, presumably 1 kW KZOT Omaha (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, July 3 at 0540 UT, quick check finds cheating KAMA El Paso still dominant with Univisión América Spanish talk; goodbye, WSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, July 3 at 0549 UT, open carrier, dead air, from WSW, no doubt usual night cheater KIJN Farwell TX, since the carrier still makes it characteristic off-frequency fast SAH with anything else on 1060.00. That`s a start; have they got religion? Now all they need to do, In Jesus` Name, is turn off the carrier, too. (What`s with all the dead air tonight? Also KTOK 1000, and Radio Australia 13630) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, July 3 at 0606 UT, `When Radio Was` is starting on steady signal, loopable away from KWKH Shreveport with sportstalk. Strongly suspect my closest, KLEY Wellington KS, which is supposed to run ONE watt at night vs 250 watts daytime. Program schedule is blank:
When Radio Was station finder does not show any 1130 in KS, MN or ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)This report dispatched at 1848 UT July 3
