Glenn Hauser logs January 13-14, 2015

** CUBA. 4765, Jan 14 at 0222, R. Progreso is back on after a silent period; first returned Jan 13 per Ron Howard when I was not monitoring: “Hi Glenn, Jan 13 heard R. Progreso back on 4765 at 0228, with Progreso having the primary/strong audio, but also heard secondary audio underneath (weak), which also seemed to be in Spanish; 0229 ID and time check.“ Not hearing any secondary audio now, but it is somewhat distorted, which was not the case before the crash. Still no 3365 yet from RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9965.0, Jan 14 at 0212, R. Cairo in Arabic, good with flutter, but somewhat distorted; not off-frequency

9905+, Jan 14 at 0213, R. Cairo, other Arabic service is dead air, good level with flutter and slightly on hi side

9860.0, Jan 14 at 0214, R. Cairo, poor with flutter, just barely modulated music during presumed English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9415, Jan 14 at 0211, ERTOpen with good signal in Greek // weaker 9935 but at least it`s not motorboating tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 1060+, Jan 14 at 0227, horrible rumbling het: east/west open carrier from KIJN TX, always off-frequency, vs north/south new XERDO Reynosa, Tamaulipas, even more off-frequency (some have measured it 76 Hz high). Federal PSA for Instituto Nacional Electoral (name change? used to be Instituto Federal Electoral — IFE); 0228 full ID as “XERDO, La Raza, 10-60, 10 mil watts de potencia“, etc. by overlapping SHVA segments.

Or maybe it was 7 as in Cantú, also with a different name:
1060 XERDO La Radio Matamoros, Tamps. 7,000 2,500
Right after this I find that USB tuning on the DX-398 helps to minimize the QRM on the lo side; and then I rotate again to hear a third station, from the west thru the KIJN carrier, 0230 UT ID as KXPL, El Paso, TX [continued under USA] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Jan 14 at 0208 just as I tune in to some music, it stops. Logs here agree it was Hummingbird Radio and came back on later:

** RUSSIA [non]. 15770, Jan 13 at 2100, trying to hear the From Moscow With Love special from R. Sputnik via WRMI, but just too weak to be worth it. Instead tuned to 15580 for VOA: see USA. Recheck at 2130, now WRMI has faded in better, too late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, Jan 13 at 2105 after perfunctory newscast, via good Greenville signal, “VOA One“ is now the ID for the music show of rock music hosted by Larry London, to which I try to doze for a semihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1755 monitoring: confirmed on Global 24 via WMRI 9395, UT Wednesday Jan 14 at 0401. Next:
Wed 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1415 on WRMI 9955
Wed 2200 on WBCQ 7490v
Wed 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Tue Jan 13 at 2203, Global 24 via WRMI with new show `Travel with Rick Steves`, starting with Lake Titicaca; replacing The Happy Station, as Keith Perron has pulled PCJ programs from G24.

9395, next check after 0200 Wed Jan 14, now it`s amid `Frequencycast` which doesn`t seem to deal in frequencies, VG signal. After WORLD OF RADIO at 0401, `Blues Radio International` has replaced `Media Network Plus` as confirmed on webcast before 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5110-CUSB, Jan 14 at 0207, monthly `Electrospace Radio` is on as scheduled via WBCQ, fair signal. I find it better to listen on the PL-880 in AM mode than try to get the SSB offset just right for the unfamiliar music. Frequent announcements, asking for reports, into Tangerine Dream; 0215 I am not hearing it any more and BFO confirms it`s off completely; and that WBCQ cuts back on at *0217:23; 0220 `Sound of Silence` in electronic version (not real silence as before 0217). 0224 another break asking for reports to radio @ electrospaceradio.com I expect to listen to the hour online later:

Later learnt that another unpirate client is on at 04-05 UT; I wonder if 5110 stayed on between 02 and 04 with something? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Jan 14 at 0210, algo very poor, must be WTWW-3; earlier in the afternoon of Jan 13 I noticed it was on again with non-English Bibling. WTWW-2 is also on at 0210 with PPPP on 5830, but WTWW-2 is on neither 5085 nor 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505+, Jan 14 at 0218, WRNO is still AWOL, altho Ron Howard did hear it intermittently the night before: ““Jan 13, heard WRNO back on the air again, but only intermittently, with EZL music. Heard at 0209 on 7505.24v; at 0222 off the air; heard 0237 on 7505.30v and 0250 on 7505.28v and final check at 0302 off the air.“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. [continued from MEXICO, XERDO, KIJN:] Then I rotate again to hear a third station, from the west thru the KIJN carrier, 0230 UT Jan 14, ID as KXPL, El Paso, TX — a 10 kW daytimer way after sunset, like KIJN is too — got to keep up with each other! Must be quite a clash across southern New Mexico.

Meanwhile, it`s confirmed that 1060 WLNO New Orleans, which used to have a tight night lobe aimed right at us, is gone — Barry Davies, UK, posted to the MW Circle yg Jan 11:

“`1060 WLNO has gone bust and off air. Just checking WLNO’s day pattern which read off air [sic]. Their website has this notice:-
http://www.msgdeals.com/WLNOlanding.html

“WLNO-AM, New Orleans, LA — By order of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado Media Services Group has been retained to sell the assets of the foregoing radio stations currently owned and operated by Communicom Corp. of America, LLC, et al. All interested parties should contact Media Services Group to obtain additional information“`

Radioinsight.com had this back on June 25, 2014: “The four buyers have been revealed for the stations auctioned off on behalf of Communicom bringing in a total of $2.15 million. . . First Citizens Bank & Trust, the lender for Christian Preaching 1060 WLNO New Orleans receives that station for $725,000“ — but it`s unclear whether the facility may eventually return to the air under some other ownership.

** U S A. 1600, Jan 14 at 0226 UT, a bit o` norteña music amid the QRM from Denver, St Louis, some Vietnamese from The Metroplex, seems to peak N/S, so presumed KOKE Pflugerville [a fine Hispanic name, Austin TX market], which per NRC AM Log is “puro norteño“, 5000/700 watts U4. Cantú shows only two XEs left on 1600, not including XEAE Acuña any more, which per IRCA had been “Tejano“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9209.5-LSB, Jan 14 at 0215, 2-way in Spanish intermittent, not intruding into a broadcast band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0536 UT January 14
