Glenn Hauser logs July 19-20, 2014

** BRAZIL. 11780, July 20 at 0103, RNA is still overmodulated and splattering out to plus/minus 20 kHz but no further spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)** CUBA. 12060, July 20 at 0154, pulse jamming at very poor level from 2 x 6060; much `better` multiple tone jamming on 11930, also against nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 11715+, July 20 at 0059, BULLETIN! R. Cairo has changed frequency from 11710v, so will no longer het/collide with Argentina 11711v on weeknights (or rather >4 kHz het replacing <1 kHz). Spanish service is now in the clear but with poor modulation, matched by pauses in the horribly distorted and much stronger modulation on // 12070 and its spurfield, as well as 9315 with fair modulation. 11715 is very slightly on the hi side, less than 11715.1. Ex-11710 had been scheduled at 0045-0200 only, 250 kW, 241 degrees from Abis per Aoki. Now the problem on 11715 will be after 0130 when AIR DRM in Nepali allegedly starts from Delhi/Khampur (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, July 20 at 0056, no signal from ERTOpen tonight, nor on 9420 – open for weak IranQuran, and nothing on 15650, 15630, 7475 or 7450 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550, July 19 at 2110-2147, R. Kuwait Arabic service is mostly Qur`an, good for napping here, and a decent signal today, with little else propagating on 16m, except Australia 17860 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sat July 20 at 0138, tune-in The Mighty KBC, VG signal via Nauen, GERMANY, just as “DX Headlines“ are ending, something about three 40m hamband frequencies to be kept clear for emergency traffic. A new feature? Followed by ad and several more before 0200*. Maybe business is picking up. Usual rock music and lively DJ chatter by Eric; seems there is no mourning here, tho I didn`t hear the whole broadcast. 0147 over to Kraig Krist in the USA for his “Forgotten Song“ segment, this time The Dorels, ex-Brooktones, 1961-1974, with “The Bristol Stomp“ from Sept 1961. Too bad that the new WOR broadcast via KVOH is on during this same semihour, but we`re grateful for whatever time stations can spare us. BTW, several 6.77-7.00 MHz bandscans during this hour produced no Saturday night pirates at all, perhaps also deferring to KBC if not us? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15655, July 19 at 2318, poor and fading signal from Station YHWH, tnx to tip from Rich Ray, Burr Ridge IL to the DXLD yg:

“On now 2309z 15655 kHz July 19. S6, some fading, typical rants about blood, animal sacrifices, Babylonian testaments. Apparently the op recently announced 4 frequencies that he will use: 9600, 11590, 15655, and 21850 kHz. Caught in progress at 2302z tune in. Off 2336z. Third time heard broadcast today“

So maybe there will be less jumping around. Harold Frodge in MI also had heard YHWH for his first time, on 15655:

“YHWH: 15655/AM, 2216-2240*?, 16-July; Finally caught him! M in EE
w/many mentions of Yahweh; ragged on the Catholics for worshipping
statues of Mary. He gave an ID & addy (for transcripts) several times
involving YHWHpirate, but could never catch the whole thing. Gave a
list of freqs, “…at random times.” Seems to be your typical, pissed
off SW huxter dude, but without the shouting. SIO=243 peaks but fades
to zilch; brief pulse burst QRM. Nothing else listed on 15655 at this

As in DXLD 14-29, Dan Sheedy heard him say that he monitors reports posted to hfunderground (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 780, July 20 at 0053 UT, KSPI Stillwater is off long before sunset. Maybe completely off: must check during the day. WBBM is free to fade in unimpeded when ready, by an hour later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 17640, July 20 at 0106 vocal music, very poor but stands out, not // all the semi-dozen CNR1 channels surrounding: lucky me, Aoki shows it`s a Sunday-only 01-03 transmission from T8WH with a bunch of English gospel huxters, plus daily at 03-04 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 19 at 0115-0117:30*, R. Chaski carrier till cutoff, which I forgot to include in previous report; in compensation, I forget to monitor it in time to catch the ~5.8 second later cutoff UT July 20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, July 20 at 0114 open carrier from SLBC; 0114:46 musical prélude starts, but 2+1 timesignal ends already at 0115:11, a good seven seconds earlier than usual! What`s going on here? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1729 monitoring: last week`s played back after 0030 UT Sunday July 20 on WRMI-9, 9495. Good signal, better than usual this week. Preceded by AWR Wavescan when checked at 0015.

WORLD OF RADIO 1730 monitoring: standing by for KVOH to come on 9975, UT Sunday July 20: *0118 with 1 kHz tone; 0127 musical prélude; 0130 ID, then Ray Robinson introducing Saturday evening programming with summary of next 2.5 hours, starting with WORLD OF RADIO 1730 from 0131:05. There is some hum on 9975 and not full modulation level. On the PL-880 but not the DX-398 I can turn the volume up full without discomfort or distortion. And now to recharge it. Next:

UT Monday 0259v on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2100v on WRMI-9, 15770
Tuesday 1100 on WRMI-10, 9955 [see if France/Taiwan QRM still there] Wednesday 0630 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 1315 on WRMI-10, 9955
Wednesday 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 2100 on WBCQ, 7490v

** U S A. 15419.9-CUSB, July 20 at 0111 and still 0145, here`s WBCQ on 19m with sufficient signal much later than usual 2100*, proving that they can run four frequencies and four transmitters at once if they want to. This is // 7490 and better than // 5110-CUSB just about synchronized, while 9330-CUSB has Good Friends Radio Network. May be live or very recent show as they mention we are at zero sunspots, then 0112 playing some Michael Jackson. I suppose it`s the “Lumpy Gravy Radio Show`, online scheduled via 5110 only, with a one-hour 01-02 gap on 7490 UT Sundays, and nothing on 15420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Saturday July 19 at 2315 check, WTWW-2 is bountiful, with equal audio levels from the moaners & wailers at the Brother Scare tabernacle (as usual at 7 am and 7 pm ET), and from Ted Randall with another QSO playback, seemingly from Dayton. Remains doubly unlistenable until 0000 QSY to 5085, and then continues with both, as if he made the frequency change without even listening to the signal to notice what was on it on it.

Kept making periodic chex, and still both BS and Ted at 0044, but next check at 0052, both are off, leaving open carrier/dead air — and that`s what continued past 0200 (when I was listening whether a canned ID would fire anyway, but it did not). At 0249 check there is organ music not // BS on 7570 et al., and then a canned ID, before resuming dead air. BS audio finally comes on at 0255.

Another example of WTWW under the operational control of Ted, who when he was speaking to me, explained that he`s running WTWW as a sideline to his major responsibilities working for several local Nashville broadcast stations. It`s clear where his priorities are, and that the three WTWWs suffer as a result.

12105, July 20 at 0104, extra PPP broadcast is again at only fair-poor level vs CODAR, while 9475 is still strong (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.2, July 20 at 0143, WRNO with big buzz on gospel huxter, perhaps the boss himself; haven`t remeasured it lately, so there they stay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7555, July 20 at 0145, no signal from KJES, off tonight, but the ute hash on the hi side circa 7557-7558 is audible from France without robo-QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 12005, July 20 at 0104, VOV is back on tonight via Woofferton UK with VG signal, but English so accented and stilted that I am not sure it`s really English at first (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0426 UT July 20
