Glenn Hauser logs March 14-15, 2015

** BRAZIL. 9725, March 15 at 0103, RB2 is on this air now, // stronger 11935, and by 0112 I can also // it to much weaker 6040 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815, March 15 at 0114, crackling spurs are barely audible, while fundamental 11780.1 RNA/RNB seems as strong as ever (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. This time I measure each Cairo frequency in addition to noting the modulation defects.

12080.04 approx., March 15 at 0112, R. Cairo, VG signal but presumed Spanish suptorted and whining; occasional JBA irregular beeps too; slightly on hi side

12035.08 approx., March 15 at 0113, R. Cairo, VG signal equal to 12080.04, but only a trace of suptorted modulation, also beeps. More to the hi side than 12080.04 is. These readings indicate one and two 40-Hz clix above the even frequency as compared to WWV

9965.0, March 15 at 0117, R. Cairo is JBM with whine; good signal, i.e. not as strong as the 12 MHzers on the meter but not off frequency

9860.0, March 15 at 0118, R. Cairo, suptorted music, not off frequency

** MEXICO. 1040, March 15 at 0136 UT with WHO nulled, Spanish news about Papa Francisco, quick hi pip sounders, “nuestras noticias“, website in .com; fades for full? ID; 0137 MOR music; 0142 UT timecheck “son las 6 con 42 minutos“ and ID as R. Sensación, and then 94.1 Stereo Sensación, y 1040-AM“, more music. So this is in a state with UT-7 MST still in effect, like Sonora or non-border Chihuahua: As in Cantú and IRCA, everything matches for XEHES in Chihuahua city, 5000/250 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1110, March 15 at 0134 UT, Rosary in Spanish with KFAB nulled, presumed XEWR, R. Guadalupana, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7570, March 14 at 2300, as publicized, WRMI preëmpts Brother Scare for a 2-hour PCJ Radio International special on its sixth anniversary of revival in Taiwan. Keith Perron sings, offers prizes, plays music and archival interviews, Happy Station broadcast clips from Eddie Startz, Tom Meijer; Dick Speekman`s last appearance; quite an improvement over the usual fare on this frequency. Glad it`s preëmptable with the best sig right across North America.

Another 7570 special is scheduled for 01-02 UT Monday March 16, belated 70th anniversary show about Radio Canada International (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980.0, March 15 at 0104, JBA carrier or two; not much of a beat and not off-frequency either, but at approx. 0105:13 the carrier weakens as R. Chaski goes off leaving BBC/UAE. That`s 6.5 seconds later than last night when there was a sharp Chaski cutoff (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, March 15 at 0115 tune-in, prélude is playing, and 2+1 timesignal ends at 0115:12, SLBC opening, on very good but fluttery transpolar signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1764 monitoring: this week started a bit earlier on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, 0318 UT March 15, nominally from 0315. Next:
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v
Tue 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v

As chances to hear WOR on SW are reduced, you may want to subscribe to a podcast: three different sources are linked atop

** U S A [and non]. 9975, March 15 at 0159, S Asian music, poor and certainly not KVOH. I know it was on around an hour earlier, but still very undermodulated, so another crash, or just turned off? KVOH has cleared the frequency for its co-Christian competitor, CVC The Voice Asia, southward from Uzbekistan in Hindi at 01-04 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, UT Sunday March 15 at 0200, a quick check of WRMI for the other “Global 24“ reactivated semi-hour. Yes, after WRMI Spanish ID, Global 24 ID and another replay of AWR Wavescan, like Friday at 0030 on 11580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1300, March 15 at 0129 UT, soul/gospel music, loops NW/SE, 0130 UT maybe sung ID unreadable; go-to-church promo, plug Sunday 6 am show on “the Gospel Powerhouse“, 0131 UT American Optometric Association PSA/ad?, then “KSYB, Shreveport`s Premier Station“. It`s 5000/30 watts non-direxional; guess which? Neither slogan is in NRC AM Log. Can`t find any own website, just numerous streaming aggregators (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** URUGUAY. 6125+, March 15 at 0057, JBA carrier on the hi side, and this time I make a point to keep checking it after 0100, when RNU is supposed to be the only station on frequency, China finishing at that hour. Local noise level is hi, and some splash from second adjacents, but with BFO, I do keep barely detecting it at further chex 0100+, 0107, 0122, 0155. Much, much weaker than the hetful collision between Bolivia and Brazil on 6135 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1410, March 15 at 0027 UT, ESPN Radio in English, loops NW/SE so not Wichita which anyway is Fox Sports. ESPN roster has two likelies: KDBS, 1000/30 watts in Alexandria LA; and KOOQ, 5000/500 watts from North Platte NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1500, March 15 at 0126 UT, I get some music, Mexican?  Bass beat with SBG from KSTP nulled as much as possible. Also at 0140 UT; at 0145, slow vocal music, DF seems NW/SE to NNW/SSE but no chance of copying it except when aimed WNW/ESE at KSTP null. Computing the SAH between them, about 108/minute = 1.8 Hz, but hard to count with a third weak off-frequency signal in the mix. 0148 UT maybe a Spanish ID as it fades; stay with it another dekaminute but no more peaks vs KSTP.

There are only 3 Mexicans on 1500, prime one being XEDF, México DF, 50 kW Cadena Radio Uno per IRCA and Aoki; R. Fórmula 1500, Segunda Cadena per WRTH. Only Cantú shows a reduced night power of 5 kW. But the DF does not fit for any XE. So how about US SS on 1500? NRC AM Log has two in AL, one in FL, one in IL, two in TX, all daytimers or with negligible night power. Texans are not a DF fit either. By direxion and distance, one of the Alabamans is most likely: WQCR Alabaster, 2300/3 watts or WKAX Russellville, 1000/- watts; either of these known to cheat, and confirmed as Spanish? At least there are no Cubans on 1500; in fact the only Cuban frequency in the 1500s is 1550, with a pileup of Rebeldes, no doubt to block something from CUBA [non], WRHC Coral Gables (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
